Puddles of tainted water and the smell of condensate permeating in the air still looms where an eight inch natural gas pipeline, located on Hohn Road in Nordheim, had a blowout and spewed condensate covering nearly half an acre on Dec. 9.

At that time, Kinder Morgan director of corporate communication and public affairs Richard Wheatley said, “Cleanup operations are underway to be followed by repairs. It’s estimated that the spill will be cleaned up within 24 hours.”

Crews throughout the Yoakum District are on standby

YOAKUM – With a chance of frozen precipitation across much of South Texas Friday night into Saturday, Texas Department of Transportation crews are preparing trucks and other equipment to treat roadways throughout the 11-county Yoakum District. 
TxDOT’s Yoakum District includes Austin, Calhoun, Colorado, DeWitt, Fayette, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Victoria, and Wharton counties. 
According to the National Weather Service, areas as far south as Victoria could see light freezing precipitation by Saturday morning. TxDOT crews are closely monitoring the situation and will respond as necessary to treat roadways. 
Drivers are urged to use extreme caution if icing conditions exist, and to avoid travel if at all possible. Special care is urged on bridges and overpasses, as they are typically the first roadways to ice over.

The the Cuero Community Hospital Childbirth Center was quiet the first five days of the new year. Finally, the hospital’s first baby of 2015 was born on the night of Jan. 5.

Kanesha, who lives in Yoakum, said the birth was “complicated.”

Demolition begins on building; HEB construction expected to start soon

 

Out with the old, and in with the new. Residents of Cuero were probably happy to see some signs of future HEB activity at the proposed location on Fain McDougal Drive. Early stages of demolition of the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative building began last week. Last year, GVEC facilities were moved to two new buildings in town.
 
According to city manager Raymie Zella, HEB plans have been reviewed by the City of Cuero Building Department, and the department has sent back their comments to HEB.
 
“They have not said exactly when they would start construction but I am anticipating construction may start in March, if not sooner,” Zella said.
