****************************************************
Commissioners: Liberty County Commissioners voted an increase to what the county provides the central appraisal district for maintaining the 9-1-1 system. Lana McCarty said currently there are 3 employees that maintain the system and this will add a 4th employee. Mrs. McCarty said in the entire year of 2015 her department mapped 2,215 9-1-1 addresses. This year, as of March 31st, they have mapped 4,869 addresses. The $25,000 increase from the county to the CAD is to hire one additional employee to work in the 9-1-1 mapping department.
****************************************************
Panthers Literary Criticism Team: The Liberty High School Literary Criticism Team competed at the state championship over the weekend, finishing in fourth place. The winning team from Argyle High School was just 11 points ahead of the Panther squad. Liberty Coach Randy Gunter said that scoring difference represents only six questions out of the 195 on the test. This year marked the 13th consecutive appearance at the state UIL academic meet for Liberty’s Lit Crit Squad.
****************************************************
DA Clarifies: To avoid any appearance of impropriety Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett recused himself from prosecuting Commissioner Mike McCarty in his recent trial for Abuse of Official Capacity. Polk County District Attorney William Lee Hon was appointed DA Pro-tem to oversee prosecution. We and other news media referred to Hon as a “special prosecutor”, which Pickett said was inaccurate, though he said it is a common mistake. The DA explained that a special prosecutor basically works as a member of the recused DA’s staff, whereas a district attorney pro-tem operates independently.
****************************************************
Summer Jobs: Both the Trinity River and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge are accepting employment applications from young men and women ages 15 to 18 for four summer positions available through the Youth Conservation Corps program. No prior experience is necessary, but participants must be citizens of the United States. That application deadline is May 5. For information, call the Anahuac refuge office at 409-267-3337 or the Trinity River Refuge office in Liberty at 936-336-9786.
****************************************************
Obituaries: Tommy Alan Clanton, 70 of Kenefick. Service is Friday at 2 p.m. at Sterling-White Funeral Home in Highlands.
