Rosary Rally set for May 13 in Cuero 

Dear Editor,

I am writing you about a Rosary Rally that is being planned for May 13 at noon on the DeWitt County Courthouse lawn. I am one of two organizers in our local area for America Needs Fatima (ANF. org). The other is Kathy Gips. This Rally will be one of thousands of rallies that will take place all across the United States on that day, at noon, in celebration of the 100th year anniversary of Our Lady Of Fatima’s first appearance to three children in Portugal on May 13, 1917.

America Needs Fatima is a campaign to capture the heart and soul of America with the Message of Our Lady of Fatima. In 1917, Our Lady appeared at Fatima to three young seers with a message of warning and hope for humanity. If the world did not convert, the Blessed Mother said there would be much suffering, famines and wars. To avert such disasters, Our Lady asked for prayer, penance and other measures. She also promised that: “Finally, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

Calvary expresses gratitude 

Dear Editor,

To Cuero area businesses,

The youth group “Watermark” of Calvary Baptist Church (next to Sonic) would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Cuero area businesses for their generous donations to our auction and fish fry April 1. The youth camp fundraiser will help send our youth to “One Camp 360” at Texas Baptist Encampment at Palacios for $249 each.

Walmart, HEB and McDonald’s gracious donations entirely defrayed the cost of the meal plus generous fishermen, cooks and helpers.

We also would like to acknowledge the 19 businesses for their generous hearts donating items and gift certificates.

We ask that our community help support our area businesses. They are willing to help send our kids to a five-day, life-changing event.

May God richly bless each of you!

With heartfelt thanks, The youth and youth department of Calvary Baptist Chuch, Cuero

Cuero Development Corporation mid-year report

The Cuero Development Corporation’s (CDC) fiscal year is October-September. Listed below is a list of activities/accomplishments/observations for the first half, (Oct 2016 – March 2017) of the fiscal year.

As you may know, the primary source of income for the CDC is sales tax remittance. It appears that the negative impact of the slowdown from the Eagle Ford Shale activities is starting to level out. I say this because although the sales tax for the City of Cuero is down for the fical year 10%, for the calendar year (January – March) the year to year comparison has increased by almost 3%.

Dear Editor,

The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce Annual Easter Egg Hunt was a great success. We thank God for the beautiful weather and the parents who brought their children out for this community event. Many thanks to Skinny, of “Skinny’s Fireworks,” for helping with the hunt and bringing his filled eggs and many door prizes. Cookies and punch furnished by Trust Texas Bank and the Yorktown Chamber were enjoyed by all. The Chamber is grateful for the National Junior Honor Society and students in teacher Malarie Rodriguez’s classroom for filling the nearly 1,000 eggs. Southern Inn was gracious to find a bunny and a helper for the sign-in. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful city park to offer these activities for the community. The City of Yorktown does a nice job of maintaining the premises so that we can have our events. Thanks to everyone who contributed to its success.

Sincerely Tammy Bitterly Executive Director Yorktown Chamber of Commerce,

Hardin ‘disgruntled’ 

 

Dear Editor,

I don’t see how it is fair for one neighbor has a whole dumpster in his front yard, everybody else has to fit their garbage in a little space, we have maybe a HEB bag we have to shove in our garbage but most of the time we have little scrap bags or bread sacks. If we have bigger trash we have to wait for the garbage truck to run to put out trash in the dumpster. It is always full tires and wood anything else, I wish we could get our own little trash can. We are paying for a dumpster we have to fight to get our trash in. I am getting tired of never having enough room to put our bigger trash until the dumpster is empty. A very very disgruntled person on my block and street. Very very unhappy.

Rita Hardin
