Share the Road: In an effort to reverse a 5% yearly increase in motorycycle crash fatalities, Texas Department of Transportation is launching its month long, “Share the Road: Look Twice for Motorcycles” campaign. TxDot officials say, in Texas last year, crashes killed 494 motorcyclists. That’s up from 470 motorcycle related deaths in 2012. Because 4,339 motorcycle crashes in Texas last year involved at least one other vehicle, state highway officials are urging drivers to look twice, leave plenty of space and use signals before making lane changes. During May, to help raise awareness, TxDot is hosting dramatic motorycycle processions across the state featuring the Texas Patriot Guard Riders. That group will be carrying eye-catching, yellow-and-black flags emblazoned with specific safety messages.

Day of Prayer: There were two events in Liberty Co. yesterday observing the National Day of Prayer, one in Cleveland and the other in Liberty. More than 75 people attended the noon hour’s 19thannual Liberty County National Day of Prayer event on the south side of the courthouse here in the county seat. That service, in Liberty, included music by Kirby Wagensell, Karla Burris and Randy Gunter. Throughout the event, pastors and youth ministers from area churches read Bible verses and prayed. National Day of Prayer was enacted by congress and signed into law back in 1952 by President Harry Truman. Then, in 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Ronald Regan permanently setting the day as the first Thursday in May.
