Raywood Woman Injured: Around 5:15 Tuesday evening, Liberty Attorney Bruce Stratton and his wife Gloria, were backing their vehicle out of their driveway on Travis St. in Liberty. It was at this point a close friend who has visiting, Vada Coward of Raywood, pulled up behind the Strattons. As Mrs. Coward stepped out of her car, she was said to be in the blind spot at the rear of the Strattons' vehicle. Without realizing she was there, Bruce Stratton backed into the woman and pinned her in between the two vehicles. Vada Coward was stabilized at the Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center. She was then transported by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann in Houston. She is said to be in stable condition, with a fractured pelvis.

LISD Budget: Liberty school trustees approved a balanced budget Tuesday night for fiscal year 2014-15. The approved budget includes a raise for all district employees. Liberty trustees approved a pay raise based on recommendations from the Texas Association of School boards. Professional staff is set for a 5.97% hike while other employees will get a 3% boost. This was prompted by a report presented to Liberty trustees that said LISD staff pay was below the area's median. The LISD board also adopted a tax rate unchanged from the current budget at $1.1686 per $100 in property valuation.
