Relay for Life: The 14th Liberty County Relay for Life committee and participants have done it again. According to event chair Sandra Sterling, this year’s relay raised at least $77,000 with more expected to trickle in during the next few days. That brings the total raised for American Cancer Society – just in South Liberty County since the first local event in 2001 – to about $1.2 million. Mrs. Sterling said this year’s Relay for Life was moved to the Dayton High School gym because rains covered the Liberty Memorial Stadium track and field with water. Despite that change, Mrs. Sterling said it was a wonderful event in a great facility. If you still want to make a donation to this very special effort, call Sandra Sterling at 936-336-3716.

Tree Falls on Home: A 65-year-old Ames man had his home heavily damaged, perhaps destroyed, by a falling tree Saturday morning. Earl Cormier was watching television when, without warning, a large tree fell, landing in the middle of his trailer house. The tree missed Cormier by some 5 to 8 feet. Although originally trapped inside his home, Mr. Cormier was out of the trailer by the time rescue personnel arrived. They covered his home with tarps to protect contents from rain. Later, Filmore “Gunny” Williams and others cut up the big tree into several pieces and got it off of the man’s home.

Candlelight Vigil: The annual Candlelight Vigil honoring victims of crime and child abuse is tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. in the Liberty Center at City Hall. Begun nearly a decade ago, this vigil is to honor victims of crime, their families and those who serve them. Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett said the special event alerts the public to the realities of crime while expressing a hope for a less violent future. The public is urged to attend tomorrow night’s Candlelight Vigil. For information, call Victim Assistance Coordinator Cathy McClusky, with the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office, at 936-336-4611.
