Woman Struck by Truck: Hardin’s Latisha (Tish) Campbell Thonsgaard was injured Tuesday evening when she was struck by a truck. She had stopped on Hwy 146 between Hardin and Moss Hill to pick up a bale of hay that had fallen from her truck when she was hit by another vehicle. The 45-year-old was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where she is said to be in stable condition with a slight skull fracture, broken ribs, bruised lung and head lacerations.

New Power Poles: We have reported frequently on the multi-million dollar upgrades to the City of Liberty’s aging electrical distribution system that is under way now. Recently contractors working for the city have begun replacing utility poles as a part of that ongoing effort. Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said they will replace more than 3500 poles throughout the city. The Liberty city manager said the Monday power outage that covered a large part of the Hwy 90 area was caused by a tree falling onto power lines during a storm. The added upgrades do not stop trees from falling during a storm.

Education Foundation: The Liberty ISD Education Foundation awarded three grants totaling $7,686 yesterday morning. The organization funds innovative teaching ideas on the district’s four campuses. The largest grant this year went to Liberty High School teacher and coach Joe Roberts. He received $5,226 for equipment that will allow students to compete in UIL Short Filmmaking. Another LHS teacher and coach, Will Joiner, received a $407 grant to purchase board games to enhance economics instruction. The third grant for $2,053 goes to LHS teacher Janie Prather, the foundation’s first four-time grant recipient. This year’s money will be used for pedal go-carts for her Adaptive PE class for students with physical limitations.
