AUSTIN — A federal shutdown arching over Texas and the rest of the nation since Oct. 1 resulted in the temporary closure of many facilities and the furloughing of millions of employees. On Oct. 16, the shutdown ended when both houses of Congress adopted a continuing appropriations act that does three things: increases the nation’s debt limit, allows the treasury to pay bills and returns the federal government to full operations, at least until mid-January. John Cornyn, Texas’ senior senator, and freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, both Republicans, voted against the act. Cruz headed contingencies in both houses to defund the federal health care law (“Obamacare”) in exchange for compromises on the federal budget. Those efforts resulted in the shutdown. As for the Lone Star State’s 36 U.S. House members, all 12 Democrats voted in favor of the compromise and all 24 Republicans voted against it. Lawmakers and the executive branch generally have indicated their willingness to work toward timely solutions to the nation’s financial issues in over the next three months in order to avoid the next fiscal cliff. Democrats and a contingency of Republicans, while in a compromising mood, continue to wrestle over “Obamacare” and how its cost dynamics affect other areas of the federal budget in the long term.

For economic development purposes, Gov. Rick Perry and First Lady Anita Perry left Texas on Oct. 15 bound for London and Jerusalem. The couple’s scheduled return is Oct. 25. No tax dollars would be used for travel and accommodations on the trip, the governor’s office said.

Court to hear Texas cases The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on Oct. 15 to hear six cases to determine if the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration exceeded its authority to regulate greenhouse gases from stationary sources, the Texas Railroad Commission reported. Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman expressed hope that the court would put a damper on EPA rules governing carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, factories and motor vehicles.

Students say no to drugs More than 1,000 Texas fifthgrade students donned mustaches and pledged to remain drug free at the 16th annual Red Ribbon Rally Thursday at the State Capitol on Oct. 17. The children raised this chant to their peers: “I mustache (must ask) you not to do drugs!” Red Ribbon Week began as a grassroots movement to honor the memory of Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, a federal Drug Enforcement Administration agent who was kidnapped, tortured, and killed by drug dealers in Mexico in 1985, organizers said.

Bus awareness starts now Texas Department of Public Safety is urging drivers to obey state law by not passing any school bus that is stopped and operating a visual signal, either flashing red lights or a stop sign. Highway Patrol troopers are enhancing their efforts to catch those drivers who break the law as part of National School Bus Safety Week, Oct. 21-25, “The moment when students are entering or exiting the bus is one of the most dangerous times of a

student’s trip; and drivers who pass a stopped school bus create a potentially deadly situation,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “The safety of Texas children is paramount, and DPS will not tolerate those who break the law and put our children at risk.”

Early voting period begins Secretary of State John Steen, the state’s chief elections officer, announced early voting for the Nov. 5, 2013, Constitutional Amendment election begins Monday, Oct. 21, and runs through Friday, Nov. 1. Texas voters may vote at any early voting location in the same county as their voter registration. This will be the first statewide election with photo ID requirement in effect for in-person voting. “I encourage all Texans to check now to make sure they have the required photo ID if they plan to vote in person,” said Steen. To find out where and when to vote, and about photo ID, visit

Money proposed for projects An additional $250 million may be available for Texas highways impacted by energy sector traffic, state Sen. Judith Zaffirini, DLaredo, announced Oct. 15. The funding would go to 70 maintenance and repair projects statewide, where repairs are necessary because of the high volume of oil and gas industry truck traffic. Despite the fact that oil and gas development in the Eagle Ford Shale contributed more than $1.24 billion in state revenue in 2012 alone, TxDOT has proposed converting some paved state highways in the shale region to unpaved roads, Zaffirini said.


Christmas tree star available for donation The cool snap that brought fall to Cuero has set the stage for the 27th annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Monday, Nov. 25, at 6:30 p.m. at Wells Fargo, Cuero (Courthouse St. and North Esplanade). The traditional display began in 1986 as the primary fundraiser for The Cuero Dewitt Community Development Corporation. “The first couple of years, we’d haul a large cedar tree in from Smithville, but about 1989 or so, we had a nursery in Hallettsville deliver a live cedar tree and we planted it in the vacant lot near Wells Fargo. It’s the one that is

still there now,” said Janet Smith, founding board member. To date, the organization has collected over $750,000 toward their goal of building an auditorium in Cuero and is working with Cuero ISD to make that dream a reality. Currently the auditorium is part of the bond issue on the November ballot and these Christmas Tree funds will be included in the final total needed to construct the state-of-the-art educational community facility. Lights are “sold” to honor friends and family for a contribution of $10 to the organization. Christmas scenes are sponsored

by local businesses and families (for a $250 contribution) and the brilliant star that tops the tree is dedicated to honor loved ones, heroes, and great friends of the community (for a $3000 contribution). Currently two scenes have been sold, but other opportunities for recognition are still available. Tax deductible donations are still being accepted toward the brilliant holiday magic that is created in downtown Cuero. The 2013 Star is also available for sponsorship. For further information, contact Janet Smith at 361277-9506.

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. Pet Adoptions of Cuero operates two shelters with the City of Cuero. Between the city and the organization, there are three shelters for stray pets. The city shelter, on FM 766, past the Stevenson Unit, houses dogs. Next to the dog shelter is a shelter for cats. The shelter belongs to the city, but it was donated by Linda Anzaldua and her husband, Lawrence. Pet Adoptions of Cuero is the sole operator of a third pet shelter, nicknamed Lucky Horseshoe. The shelter can be accessed from Old Clinton Road, off U.S. Highway 183. The need for a third shelter came up when the city moved its stray pets

from the old animal shelter by the airport to the new shelter in February. Pet Adoptions of Cuero volunteered to take in the stray pets so they would not be euthanized. “We were panicking. Where are we going to put 20 dogs? We had nowhere to go. Luckily Ricky and Lindy Gohmert are big animal lovers,” Myrna said. “Ricky said he had property for sale that wasn’t being used with horse stalls.” “[The Gohmerts] donated use of the property, but if someone buys the property, we’re out on the street again,” Linda said. “It’s a day-to-day situation we’re always under the cloud of so we have to get homes for these animals. This is not a permanent solution.” The Lucky Horseshoe shelter now serves as an overflow shelter, taking in dogs that have spent more than 30 days at the city shelter. The organization is looking for volunteers to foster pets or help out at the Lucky Horseshoe shelter.

2 hotels under construction Two new hotels are under construction in Cuero. Both are located on Hwy. 183 North (Gonzales highway). According to a press statement, this one is a 77-room Holiday Inn Express with an etimated construction cost of $2.6 million and next to it will be a 51-room America’s Best Value Inn with an estimated cost of $2.7 million. City of Cuero has annexed the property along this highway. Cuero Record photo.

“We’re looking for pet lovers with a little bit of room. We need foster homes,” Linda said. “Sometimes a whole litter of puppies is dropped off at the city shelter. The city shelter not equipped to handle puppies that need hourly care. So we want to have a foster system to take care of puppies until they old enough to be adopted.” Those who volunteer at the Lucky Horseshoe shelter would be asked to visit the shelter a few times a week to feed, clean, and socialize the animals. The organization has two volunteers, Brenda Doreck and Anne Bryant, who work at the shelter every morning. “We need people who are willing to go to the [Lucky Horseshoe] shelter and get dirty. If we had other volunteers, no one would have to work more than three days a week.” Officers encourage anyone looking to adopt a pet to shop locally. “We had an adoption event at Tractor Supply about a month ago. We had eight dogs and one cat adopted,”

Myrna said. “We’d like to have adoption events once a month, that’s our goal,” Linda said. She said the organization is looking for other businesses that might be interested in letting the organization host the event on their property, preferably during store sales. The organization’s officers include Ron Ledbetter, president; Myrna Hassfield, vice president; Linda Anzaldua, second vice president; Peggy Ledbetter, secretary and treasurer; and board members Emily Davis and Willie Baker. For more info about adopting dogs, call Ron at 277-3706 or call Brenda at 275-6713. For more info about adopting cats, call Linda at 275-6555.

CISD VOTING Continued from Page 1A •District wide improvements - $29.7 million. Includes: new performing arts center with 800 seats; new stadium seating (4,000 home and 3,000 visitor) and restrooms; new competition gym with boys and girls field house; new band hall/choir; install security, technology, and energy conservation equipment; resolution to reimburse for track and turf. At the polls residents of the district will be asked to vote either ‘for’ or ‘against’ the issuance of the $76 million in bonds. If the voters approve the bonds, property taxes on a homestead valued at $50,000 will see their taxes increase by approximately $11.46 per month. It is noted, this increase is based on the assumption that there will be no change in the taxable values of the district. If the district’s tax base grows, the property tax increase will be less.

Clinton Cementary is “Boot Hill” of DeWitt County Most communities in the Old West had a “Boot Hill,” a cemetery where people were buried “with their boots on.” De Witt County is no different. Located several miles south of Cuero on Highway 183, the Clinton Cemetery is the boot hill of De Witt County. If the soft winds that drift through the Clinton Cemetery could speak, they would tell a tale of sturdy pioneer spirits, resilience, hardship, disease, and lawlessness. The Clinton Cemetery is an integral part of De Witt County ‘s colorful history. Soon after the Republic of Texas became the State of Texas, De Witt County was formed from parts of Victoria, Gonzales, and Goliad counties. The first state legislature appropriated money to survey the county lines for De Witt County in 1846. The survey was completed in that year, but there was some disagree-

ment over the location of the county seat, and after several moves between the Cardwell Store at Cameron and the location owned by Richard Chisholm near the ferry he operated at the La Bahia Road crossing on the Guadalupe River, Clinton became the county seat in 1850 by vote of the people. For approximately 24 years, Clinton was a thriving community. It was the home to several churches including a Methodist church and the Liveoak Presbyterian Church. Besides the two story courthouse, which was used for a time by both churches as well as for court, there were private and public schools, several stores, a drugstore, a blacksmith and livery stable, a hardware store, a tin shop, a two story hotel and several doctor’s and lawyer’s offices, and a lodge. Clinton’s hotel was one of the first to serve

oysters in the area. The town was a center for area trade, and it was the location of many fracases during the Sutton-Taylor Feud, for which the town became well-known. When Clinton first became county seat, Judge Rollins B. Wofford donated five acres of land to the community for a graveyard. It is possible that a child, Mary Murphree, was the first to be buried in the Clinton Cemetery. For almost fifty years the cemetery became the resting place for many the people of the area. When burial spaces were full, a new cemetery was donated so that burial in the community could be continued. The new part is located immediately north and adjacent to the old cemetery, and it is still being used. The old part of the cemetery became neglected and overgrown with brush. Several times, it has been cleaned but

succumbed again to overgrowth. Recently the old part of the Clinton Cemetery was cleaned by County Commissioner Donald Kuecker, at the request of the De Witt County Historical Commission. Members of the Commission, realizing that this cemetery is steeped in the history of DeWitt County, feel that it needs to be recognized as an important part of the past. The organization plans to erect an appropriate monument at the entrance of the old cemetery. Since so many of the gravestones have been lost, the monument would contain names of those who are known to be buried in old Clinton. The public is invited to become involved in this effort. First of all, if anyone knows of a person buried in the Old Clinton Cemetery, and who is not already listed in Patsy Goebel’s inventory of De Witt

application form or more information. The cost of the retreat is $125. Participants will drive themselves to the Retreat Center. There are 15 slots open, first come-first go and the deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 25.

The Cuero Record Devotional Page Enjoy the blessing of today; there is no promise of tomorrow By GARY ANDREWS Each day on this earth is an uncertainty. We plan for the future and this is all well and good, but we need to remember God didn’t promise us a tomorrow. Many of life’s events are unpredictable and the uncertainty of future events leads some people to despair. We need to live one day at a time. Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 states: “Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life God has given you under the sun - all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave,

where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.” Instead of us worrying about tomorrow and possibly worrying about something we do not possess, we should be thankful and joyful for what we do have. Whatever our circumstances we should relish the fact that God has given a new day on life and we are to make the best of it. Our lives as faithful believers should be characterized by festive gratitude and the enjoyment of the legitimate pleasures of life. When we marry we should remember that marriage is for our time on earth only. Our days are quickly fleeting and we should invest our best time and energies in having loving relationships. Honor and opportunity in serving God are possible in every honest occupation. Be happy in what you do and where you work. Perform your task to the best of your ability and serve the Lord through your efforts. If all of us would do this, then the world would be a better place for us to live our short life span.

If you are not happy in your profession, make a change! Jesus said, “We must do the works of Him who sent Me while it is day. Night is coming, when no one can work.” (John 9:4) Use you God given abilities, knowledge, and wisdom everyday. Enjoy a good, wholesome, loving relationship with your spouse everyday. Make everyday count for the glory of the Lord because soon, and very soon, our days will cease and we will enter the grave and our time on earth will be no more. Prayer: God I praise you for another day of life. You have blessed me abundantly and I pray that I can serve you through anything that I do. Amen.

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 197275. A total of 54 victories and only two losses, a 44-game winning streak, and two state championships were achieved during this brief period.

RAIN-SOAKED LOSS Gobblers take first district loss

Cuero’s Zech Hopkins took this pass reception from quarterback Jared Vernor 57 yards to help set up the Gobblers field goal in the first quarter. Also shown is Tel Holland (55).

By GLENN REA Editor & Publisher Throw the books away. The 103 year old battle between Cuero’s Gobblers and Yoakum’s Bulldogs can only be decided one game at at time. Friday night, the Bulldogs took the decision 41-20. As fans huddled under umbrellas at Bulldog Stadium, Yoakum made a big statement to start the game. On their first play from scrimmage, Dog quarterback Tre’vontae Hights blasted up the middle for a 71 yard touchdown run virtually untouched. Just 20 seconds into the game, Yoakum was up 60. They missed the extra point try. Hights either made or passed for five of the six touchdowns made by the Bulldogs Friday. This was the second district contest for both schools. The Gobblers are now 1-1 (4-2) and the Bulldogs are 2-0 (3-3). After that initial blow, both teams were trying to find their footing on a rain-soaked field. On Cuero’s second possession, quarterback Jared Vernor connected with Zech Hopkins for a

57-yd. pass to the Bulldog 6. D’Anthony Hopkins pushed Yoakum back to the 1 and then followed with a dive over the middle to captures Cuero’s first points of the game. The point-after kick missed its mark and the game was tied at 6-6 with 7:20 left in the opening stanza. A pumped-up Yoakum squad put together its second scoring drive taking Cuero’s kick-off at their own 26. Seven runs including one for 36 yds. saw the Bulldogs cross over for a TD with 3:52 in the first. With the PAT kick the score was 13-6. The Gobblers were anxious to respond and put together an 11-play drive moving to the Bulldog 17. But the effort ended with a fumble recovered by Yoakum. Cuero’s defense returned to the trenches refusing to let the Dogs reach mid-field after 11downs. The Gobblers took the Yoakum punt at their own 14. With no success on the ground, Vernor tried going to the air but the ball was tipped by the Cuero receiver and See GOBBLERS, Page 2B
