West Nile: A second human case of West Nile Virus has been reported in Liberty County. According to Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch, both cases have been detected in the 77575 zip code - that's the Liberty area. City Manager Gary Broz said, for now, no mosquito spraying is planned for Liberty. At least 34 human cases of West Nile neuroinvasive disease or West Nile Fever have been reported statewide this year. Mr. Branch recommends using insect repellant with DEET as well as wearing long sleeves and pants at dusk and dawn. Other simple tips include draining standing water on your property plus keeping screens on doors and windows. To find out more, visit the state's website at www.txwestnile.org.

Robbery-Assault: Liberty County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help locating two men responsible for a violent armed robbery and assault Friday night. Sheriff's Captain Ken DeFoor said Theresa Graff was robbed at her residence on FM 787 in the northeast end of the county. Two men reportedly used a taser to shock Ms. Graff while demanding money. The suspects are said to be tall, strong white men who were wearing all black clothing and black masks. They reportedly used vulgar language, cursing their victim while beating and shocking her. They also were said to be carrying handguns. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 936-336-4500.

School Zone/Bus Safety: Today marks the start of school across the area. With that in mind, motorists are urged to take extra caution. As a reminder, Texas law prohibits vehicles passing any school bus that is stopped with its lights flashing. Motorists are also reminded there is a ban against the use of handheld communication devices by those operating a motor vehicle in a designated school zone. There are two affirmative defenses to prosecution - #1 using a handheld phone to call for help from an emergency response service or #2 if the school zone does not have posted signage. In Liberty County, those signs are posted in at least some school zones in the cities of Liberty, Cleveland, Devers, Hardin, Tarkington and Hull-Daisetta, By decision of Dayton City Council, that city does not have those signs.
