McCarty: Testimony continues today in the 75th District Court as the trial of Liberty County Pct. 1 Commissioner Mike McCarty enters its third day. He is charged with two counts of Abuse of Official Capacity. The first prosecution witness to take the stand was Buck Gordon who did both personal work for Mr. McCarty’s business interests and was also a contract worker for Precinct 1. He testified those two jobs were often co-mingled, and the pay for personal work was sometimes billed to the county. Mr. Gordon was followed on the stand by Liberty County Treasurer Kim Harris. The remaining four witnesses yesterday were all workers for Pct. 1. The prosecution will continue presenting its case today. Mike McCarty is expected to take the stand.
Fire: The brick home of a man south of Liberty on CR 140 was completely destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon. Liberty, Hardin, Hull-Daisetta and Moss Bluff fire departments were all called to combat the inferno that destroyed the 1800 square foot home, a pickup truck, an RV and several other pieces of equipment and all the man’s possessions. The home owner, Jim Clary, said he was working on an old lawnmower he’d pulled the deck from to use as transportation around his property. He walked away when something exploded. Jim Clary said he feared some puppies had perished in the blaze while other pets escaped.
Dayton Council: The Dayton City Council met Monday night to accept the city’s annual audit report from the Belt Harris Pechacek Audit Firm. The city’s audit for the 2015 -2016 Fiscal Year was, in the auditors’ opinion, clean and unqualified, the highest rating a financial audit can produce. In other action, Dayton City Council members approved a change to the way city council meeting agendas are prepared. The most significant change allows City Secretary Melinda Soliday more time to prepare and post city council agendas. Instead of the deadline for items to be submitted for placement on the city council agenda being the Friday before the next meeting on Monday, the change bumps that back to the Wednesday before the next meeting.
Obituaries: Leslie “Smitty” Clarence Smith, 67 of Dayton. Funeral service is Thursday at 10 a.m. in the Pace-Stancil Funeral Home Chapel in Dayton.
