Senior Sunbeams thankful for support

Dear Editor,

As coordinators of the Senior Sunbeams, my husband and I would like everyone reading this letter to know that the Seniors who attend this gathering five days a week look forward to getting together to play dominoes and bingo. We would like to thank the following places that host our group during the month and like to tell you of a wonderful surprise that happened recently at a local restaurant.

The places that host are Calvary Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church, Methodist Church, St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Santi’s Restaurant, Bahnhoff Restaurant and Cuero Nursing and Rehab. In attendance are approximately anywhere from 12 to 25 senior citizens who are by themselves and need interaction with other in their age group. We meet at a different place every day. We also go to the Parkside picnic once a month.

Constitution talk March 15 

 

Dear Editor,

Do you think the United States Constitution written by the founders in 1787 is still relevant today? There is a movement to convene another constitutional convention; it is titled an Article 5 convention of the states. Now, we hear the Texas Senate has already passed SJR2 calling for a con-con. Sadly we also hear that our Senator Lois Kolkhorst voted in favor.

If you think the idea of a constitutional convention is a good idea, then I invite you to the University of Houston-Victoria, university north building, at 3007 N. Ben Wilson, Wednesday, March 15 at 7 p.m.

If you understand a con-con is not such a good idea you are still invited to come and hear constitutional scholar Robert Brown. His talk is titled “Change It or Obey It, Why the Constitution is the Solution.”

There will be a $10 charge for the event co-hosted by DeWitt and Victoria chapters of the John Birch Society.

Dear Editor,

In reference to the opinion letter penned by Mr. John Janacek, a rebut is both necessary and appropriate.

Mr. Janacek quickly draws a comparison to unnamed dictatorships, but let us remember that we are a nation of laws, with three separate but equal branches of government. There is no danger of that happening here.

With reference to the “ban on Muslin's travel to the US from 7 Islamic nations”, a review of that proposal reveals that it is not a ban at all, merely a 90 day moratorium on travel from these countries, just as President Trump indicated in his campaign promises. With regard to what Mr. Janacek terms an “overblown reaction to terrorism”, I would suggest that President Trump has better information regarding terrorism in the U.S. that Mr. Janacek, and would therefore be in a better position to determine what constitutes an appropriate reaction vs. an overblown reaction to terrorism.

Dear Editor,

Project Graduation would like to thank everyone who supported this year’s Senior Serve. We sincerely appreciate those who helped in any way, including those who purchased tickets, decorated, prepared items for the silent auction, purchased those items, attended the dinner and talent show, served their guests, performed in the show, and helped clean up afterward. Participation by this year’s graduating class of 2017 was fantastic, but support from the community was even more so. It was a great evening and we could not have done it without the overwhelming support of the community!

UHV-Small Business Development Center deemed a success in Cuero office

In the spring of 2016, a partnership between the Cuero Development Corporation (CDC) and University of Houston-Victoria – Small Business Development Center (UHVSBDC) was created with the opening of the SBDC office in Cuero at the CDC headquarters, 214 E. Main. To submit grants to CDC, business owners are required to confer with business advisors from the SBDC.

Before June 2016, those meetings took place at various locations in town. Now local business owners meet at the Cuero DC office. This measure also completed one of its Action Items of the latest Cuero Strategic Economic Development Plan “to consider offering the UHV-SBDC office space at the CDC.”
