Burnham Classic a Success: The recent 24thAnnual Burnham Classic Golf Tournament has once again been hailed a huge success. Bruce Burnham said this year’s tourney raised $25,000 for Tri County Services. The Burnham family has now raised more than $469,000 for Tri County Services, or its predecessor, during the past 24 years. This annual event benefits the physically handicapped and mentally disadvantaged of south LibertyCounty. This year’s tourney was held in memory of J.C. Burnham, who with his son, Bruce, founded this effort. It was announced at this year’s event that all future Burnham Classic Golf Tournaments will also be held in J.C.’s memory.

Sheriff’s Office Gets Grant: The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded a grant from the Office of the Governor. The three-year, $121,504 grant allows the S.O. to hire a child crimes special investigator. While the sheriff’s office has investigators trained and experienced in crimes against children, in the past, they had to divide their time between their case loads involving children and other crimes. With an investigator assigned solely to crimes against children, Sheriff Bobby Rader say those cases will now receive the focus and commitment that a specialist can provide.

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

Burn Ban: Liberty County Judge Craig McNair has issued a burn ban for the unincorporated areas of the county. Ongoing dry conditions have increased the danger of wildfires. As a result, all open burning is prohibited until further notice. Violators are subject to fines up to $500. This ban refers to burning in the unincorporated areas of Liberty County. Open burning is always prohibited within the city limits of Liberty, Dayton and Cleveland.
