Bat specialist speaks at city meeting

 

It’s a subject not many want to talk about. Partly because it’s smelly and partly because it’s scary.
 
But now people are talking.
 
Last week several downtown business owners met to talk about b-a-t-s.
 
Unless you are new to Cuero, you know there are bats downtown. You can see them flying at sunset. You can smell them on a rainy day.
 
Jim Kennedy, principal scientist with Kennedy Above and Under Ground in Austin, is a bat specialist. He was previously specialist with Bat Conservation International.

Gobbler exhibit Nov. 1

 

The Cuero Heritage Museum has expanded the Gobbler Football History exhibit. This expanded exhibit follows the previous two exhibits (1911 to 1971) and will have team pictures and stories that chronicle the winning seasons of 1972-75. A total of 54 victories and only two losses, a 44-game winning streak, and two state championships were achieved during this brief period.
 
A reception for the exhibit will be held 4:30-7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, which will give Gobbler fans plenty of time to get to the Cuero, Gonzales game. Refreshments will be served.
 
There is a need for Gobbler football artifacts and memorabilia from this time period. Those who have posters, letterman’s jackets, programs, and other memorabilia are asked to contact Mike Weber at 275-3827 or 564-0961. Addresses for players who live outside the Cuero area are also needed.
 
The Cuero Heritage Museum is on 124 E. Church St.

Pet organization makes plenty of progress in a year

 

In just over a year, Ron Ledbetter, president of Pet Adoptions of Cuero, estimates 100 dogs have been taken off the streets with the assistance of the organization. These dogs have either been adopted or taken to a larger shelter out of town.
 
Linda Anzaldua, second vice president, estimated the same figures applied to cats. 
 
“We’re a small town. There’s only so many you can adopt in a smaller town,” Linda said. “Luckily [these shelters] know we’re nonprofit. They know we treat the animals right and we get all the medical attention for them so they are taking our animals when they can.”
 
Although the organization has come a long way since it was formed in August 2012, club officers say it has a long way to go.
