Cell Phones and 911: Did you know that out-of-service cell phones can still be used to dial 9-1-1 for emergency help? However, Cleveland Police Captain Scott Felts said that is causing an unexpected problem. He said it has become common for parents to pass down their old cell phones, which are no longer in service, to their young children for recreational use. Captain Felts said Cleveland PD has seen a trend in the past few years of children accidentally contacting 911, not realizing they were able to do so with these out-of-service phones. He urges parents to educate their children about 911 before turning over their old cell phones as play toys.

Liquor in Liberty: At least three efforts are under way to locate a liquor store in the City of Liberty. That comes on the heels of last November’s election that saw Liberty residents overwhelming approve an ordinance that allows those with state permits to operate a liquor store. There are two chain stores seeking permits – Dillon’s and Sunny’s. A third effort is L&R Liquors – that permit, if approved, will belong to a Dayton couple.

County Eyes Savings: Liberty County Commissioners have approved a service and maintenance contract with a company called Way Service that is designed to save the county millions of dollars over the next 15 years. That contract calls for cost-saving infrastructure upgrades like new energy-efficient lighting as well as replacing, servicing and redesigning HVAC systems. Way Service Regional Manager Andy McDonald said the greatest savings will come from improvements at Liberty County Jail. The contract cost is $2.1 million over the next eight years. However, according to estimates, during the next 15 years, the county will be able to pay for the contract while experiencing a net savings of $4.6 million.

Pick Up Trash: Trash along roadways not only makes a community look bad, but it also costs taxpayers to clean up that mess. Some of that trash is thoughtlessly tossed onto streets and alongside highways, but Dayton City Manager David Douglas points out that most trash is blown from the open beds of pickup trucks. It’s been said at least a million times – don’t trash Texas highways. If you do have something in the bed of your pickup truck, be a good citizen and secure it in such a way that will keep it from blowing out along the roadways.
