Martin presents Bell Award to Hataway

The Cuero High School bell ceremony was held May 22. The ceremony allows the top ten graduates to recognize an educator of their choice. Following is Darren Martin’s dedication speech.
 
During my years as a student in Cuero, there have been many people who have influenced my life. The man I have chosen to give my bell to changed my entire perspective on the way I see just about everything. While I have only known him for two years, this man has had a great impact on my life. Between the highly personal conversations and brutally honest criticisms, I learned many lessons from this great man.

2 DeWitt County ranchers featured in Australian magazine

 

While most people in South Texas are use to seeing ranchers with oil wells, apparently it is somewhat of a novelty to the folks down-under.
 
Two ranchers and some of the local oil punchers were the subject of a feature in The Australian Financial Review in June. 
Author John Kehoe spent a couple of days in DeWitt County interviewing locals for his article, “Oil’s well in Texas.”
 
Some of the feature was directed at the connection of local drilling company BHP Billiton which is headquartered in Australia. BHP has about 17 drilling rigs in this county.
 
The two ranchers quoted in the article are Bubba Steen and Ray Nolte of the Westhoff area.

Harwell hired as city's first fire marshal

 

There is a new marshal in town and he goes by the name of Buddy Keiffer Harwell Jr. He was recently hired to be the first full time fire marshal in Cuero.
 
“I was not looking for another job but then this position in Cuero opened up,” Harwell said. “The main thing that drew me was the growth of the town and I wanted to move closer to the coast to settle down [and eventually] retire.”
 
Cuero city manager Raymie Zella said, “We have had a part-time person as needed. This time last year, during our budget meeting, we discussed the need of a full time fire marshal position to keep up with all of the inspections, new construction, and daily tasks to keep up with Cuero’s growth.”
