Congressman proud of area residents
Cuellar said hearing the news of the outpouring of love from New Braunfels was not a surprise.
“This is part of my district, and I’m very proud of the folks here," he said.
“Yes, they have,” Brenda replied. “They have gone overboard for us. You don’t know how hard they worked.”
The Dingles and their family at Slumber Falls are still trying to figure out what their future will hold. But while waiting on news from New Orleans, they are working to become a part of New Braunfels.
“We want to go back, but we don’t have anything to go back to,” Brenda said. “So if it takes a year or more, we’ll stay in Texas. We’re looking for jobs, and we’re trying to get housing.” The children in the family began school Thursday and have quickly become Unicorns in the New Braunfels Independent School District.
“They’re enjoying school,” said Eddie Williams, who had three children start. “They’ve come home two days in a row with smiles on their faces. We’re going to a football game tonight (Friday). They’re just excited.”
T he increase of students at local schools is one issue Cuellar is worried about as he works in Congress. He said the $62 billion Congress has agreed to

Cuellar said the state’s share of Medicare and Medicaid costs could run as high as $30
million a month.
After talking to Cuellar, Naomi Cosey, the matriarch of the extended family, said she was thrilled with the outpouring from Texans, but she really wanted to go home.
“This is the second time around for me,” Cosey said. “My children and I, we were in Betsy, too.”
