Robinson secures Republican nomination for justice of the peace

There was only one contested local race in Tuesday’s primaries. Interest in voting was reflected in the low turnout as only 14% of the registered voters went to the polls.

According to DeWitt Election Administrator Patty Strieber, 1,680 votes were cast in this county out of 11,784 registered voters.

Cuero tax rebate tops $300,000

 

A milestone was set in Cuero recently with little fanfare. For the first time in its history, the city received a monthly sales tax rebate check for over $300,000.
 
While these monthly rebate checks have continued to reflect the additional activity of the Eagle Ford Shale, this record amount was more likely due to the expansion of Cuero’s city limits.
 
Due to the city’s annexations last year, additional businesses are now collecting the 2% sales tax that is rebated to the city each month.

The City of Cuero Tree Board, along with the DeWitt County Extension Service, is sponsoring a tree planting workshop. The workshop will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, March 20 at the Cuero Municipal Clubhouse (Rockhouse).
 
“Many people have planted trees for shade, windbreaks, privacy, or wildlife habitat and have had rather disappointing results,” said Anthony Netardus, DeWitt County Agriculture Extension Agent. “At the same time, others have planted trees with great success. This workshop will help you learn many useful ways to be successful with the trees you plant.”
