Volume 28, No. 161 Wednesday August 21, 2013


New Police Chief: Dayton has a new police chief. Dayton City Council met in executive session for more than three hours Monday before selecting Dayton PD veteran investigator John Headrick to succeed Pete Douzat as Dayton’s chief of police. There were two finalists for that post – John Headrick and Dayton Police Sgt. Doug O’Quinn. After returning to open session, Dayton City Manager David Douglas recommended Headrick, and city council unanimously approved his proposal. Chief Headrick is a 46-year-old Dayton native who has been with the city’s police force for more than 20 years.


LibertyProperty Values: Property values in the City of Liberty have been on a steady rise in recent years, thanks to Boomerang Tube. Liberty County Chief Appraiser Alan D. Conner said Boomerang – valued on the city’s tax roll at $59.8 million – is the largest taxpayer in the City of Liberty. Total values for the City of Liberty stand at $566.96 million. That means nearly 10 percent of the city’s taxable property value comes from Boomerang Tube. While values in the Liberty school district have also been on the rise the last few years, Alan Conner said 2013 values are down about 1 percent to $866.57 million. The chief appraiser said that decrease is related to a hefty 25.69 percent drop in mineral values within the district.


Panther Pep Rally: The 2013 Liberty Panther football team’s last pre-season scrimmage is tomorrow at home in Memorial Stadium versus the Hardin Hornets. The community is invited to watch the scrimmage and stay for a big Meet the Panthers Pep Rally afterward. The scrimmage gets under way at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow. The pep rally will get started around 7:30. The Liberty Booster Club will be selling sandwiches. Black and gold spirit items will also be available. It’s a chance to meet Panther athletes, the band, cheerleaders, the Prancers and choir members. Admission to both the scrimmage and pep rally is free.
