Fatality: 33-year-old Brandi Nicole Breithaupt of Saratogawas killed Tuesday night just before 11 p.m.after being struck by a car while she was walking along FM 160.  The driver of the eastbound vehicle thought to have struck and killed the Saratogawoman is Cecile Brunson of Daisetta. One source thought the driver was passing another vehicle and was unable to see the pedestrian. The fatal auto-pedestrian crash occurred on FM 160 between the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the intersection of 160 and FM 770. The DPS continues to investigate.

LibertyCounty4-H: The LibertyCounty4-H Mounted Drill Team has done it again! They have successfully defended their state championship titles . The LibertyCountyyouth took first place in both the fast freestyle and precision drills. The local 4-H Mounted Drill Team has won top state honors in one or both of those events now for the past decade.

LISD Golden Pennies: Libertyschool trustees may soon ask voters to approve a small upward change to the district’s maintenance and operation tax rate. However, a planned corresponding reduction to the debt service side of the tax rate would mean LISD’s total tax rate would actually drop slightly.  The move is meant to capture what’s called golden pennies from the state. While the state requires a cap of $1.04 per $100 in property valuation, voters can approve up to $1.17.  For the first two cents voters approve above $1.04, the state will nearly match that local commitment. Combining both the additional revenue created by the tax increase, and the state share would increase by $331,000 the maintenance and operation side of the Libertyschool district budget.

****************************************************

Dedicated Funds: The state of Texas, by law, is required to have a balanced budget. Each legislative session since 1991, un-appropriated dedicated account balances have been counted to certify the state budget as balanced. State Representative John Otto said this is misleading. Two bills this past legislative session will, over time, stop the practice of counting the money in dedicated funds as revenue for certifying the budget is balanced.
