Mitchell earns CHS diploma 35 years later

 

   Andrew Mitchell walked to receive his diploma at the Cuero High School graduation in 1978. This year, Mitchell walked across the Cuero ISD board room to receive another diploma from BJ Dreher, school board president. But this time, Mitchell’s diploma wasn’t a dummy.
   The Cuero ISD board of trustees recognized Mitchell during their regular board meeting July 11.
   Mitchell said he thought he had completed his degree with the rest of his class in 1978. But several years ago, he began to second guess whether he really earned his diploma.
   “You just get a feeling,” Mitchell said. “I turned 19 when we graduated. 35 years later, I’m 54, I just was curious.”

Documentaries continue to research DeWitt Blue Dog

 

   It may seem like a while since the infamous Cuero chupacabra made headlines locally, but on a bigger scale the “Blue Dog” is still a popular topic.
   Dr. Phylis Canion has continued to be the most knowledgeable person on the subject since her originally siting in 2007.
Her extensive research of the chupacabra (now referred to as Blue Dog by many) has resulted in between 35 and 40 documentaries filmed at her ranch near Cuero.
   Dr. Canion has been invited by Discovery Channel to travel to San Diego to participate in a new series for the Science Channel. “The Unexplained Files” will feature a three person panel with each providing and answering questions in their field of expertise.
   “The interest in this thing just never stops,” she said.  “That is what amazes me. It’s kind of a big deal.”

Parkside Clinic earns grant to educate about shingles virus

 

   Nearly one out of three people in the United States will develop shingles, a painful rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Anyone who has recovered from chickenpox may develop shingles, or zoster. Men and women aged 60 years or older are most at risk. Shingles can be prevented with a vaccination.
   Parkside Family Clinic in Cuero received a $550 grant from Texas Medical Association’s Be Wise — ImmunizeSM program to educate De Witt County seniors about shingles and how to prevent it. A large percentage of these senior patients are on Medicare, which provides health care coverage for seniors and persons with disabilities.
   “Medicare plans may or may not cover the full cost of the zoster vaccine for seniors, which can cost as much as $200,” said Sandi English, PhD, CHW, patient education coordinator at Parkside Family Clinic.
