Volume 28, No. 122 Wednesday June 26, 2013


Commissioners: Yesterday, Liberty County Commissioners voted to hold the salaries and allowances for elected officials in the upcoming budget at the same rate as the current budget year. In other action, commissioners told Dayton Community Development Coordinator Courtland Holman they, as a court, were favorable to offering a tax abatement for a building to lure a medical facility to the Dayton area. The Liberty County Commissioners Court did not actually approve a tax abatement, simply indicated their wiliness to do so.


Portof Liberty: It’s a mess! Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Texas Parks and Wildlife are investigating KGN Environmental and Metal. That company was under contract with the Port of Liberty to disassemble a barge and haul it off as well as any debris created by that effort. What they left, however, are large, even huge, piles of Styrofoam along the Liberty Port river bank. Gary Broz said he hopes to hear from those governmental agencies very soon.


Heat: The National Weather Service in Houston is predicting daytime temperatures will rise to almost 100 degrees this weekend. Weather service statistics show that heat is a common cause of related death, claiming hundreds of lives across the U.S. each year. In very hot, humid weather, the body heats up rapidly. This can lead to heat cramps, heat exhaustion and, the most serious heat illness, heat stroke. For information on how to protect yourself from the summer heat, go to the weather service website.

New Agent: The Liberty County AgriLife Extension Service is adding a new agent, Winnefred Jackson, to the team. Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent Alexis Cordova said Ms. Jackson is coming in July as a community and economic development specialist.


Obituaries: Doyle R. Huffman, 72 of Crosby. Services tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Pace-Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton. Michael H. Linkinhoker, 57 of Dayton. Services Friday 2 p.m. Pace Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton.
