SH 146: A change in speed limits will soon slow down traffic on State Highway 146 in Chambers County from 3/10 mile south of I-10 then continuing south to the Harris County line. Texas Department of Transportation recently performed a speed study on that stretch of SH 146. Findings allow for a reduction of the speed limit from 60 to 50 MPH. In March, the City of Baytown passed a city ordinance making the new speed limit enforceable once signs are posted. TxDOT will begin changing those signs, weather permitting, this coming week.

Hospital: In the three years since the Liberty County Hospital District took over operations of the Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center, the facility has gone from operating at a $1.2 million yearly deficit, to making a small profit for the last several months. Liberty County Hospital District Board President Bruce Stratton said it is the result of the hard work and dedication from the hospital staff and management.

Tax Scams: Local Certified Public Accountant Byron Swaim says like other government agencies, the Internal Revenue Service will never call or e-mail citizens demanding money. Swaim said the IRS has been known to notify you of an audit by calling ahead to set up an appointment, but the agency will never call with threats to get money. If anyone does, it’s a crook.

DaytonBand: Recently, the Woodrow Wilson Jr. High Pony Band earned an “Excellent” rating at the UIL Concert and Sight Reading competition. The Pony Band followed with superior ratings at both a Blinn College competition and Fun Fest band competition in Dallas. The Dayton High JV Band also participated at Blinn College, receiving a mark of Excellent.

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

Distracted Driving: April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, plus the kickoff of the state’s annual “Talk, Text, Crash” public education campaign. TxDOT reports that cell phone use is the most recognizable driving distraction, but any type of behavior that draws a motorist’s attention away from driving is dangerous. The “Talk, Text, Crash” campaign warns motorists about the dangers and urges them to avoid multitasking or engaging in non-driving activities until they reach their destination.
