Courthouse Security: A new law takes effect on September 1st that authorizes the creation of a committee in each county to find solutions to courthouse security problems. The bill is called the Julie Kocurek Bill after the Liberty County native and Austin District Judge Julie Kocurek who survived an assassination attempt at her home in 2015. Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett said the Liberty County Courthouse has so many doors, and hundreds of people using those doors every day, creating its own security issues. The District Attorney said recent steps by Liberty County Commissioners toward courthouse security means something is being done and with the new law coming in September, even more will be done in the future to ensure the safety of courthouse staff and visitors.
Eclipse: A solar eclipse will darken the skies across America on Monday, August 21. Here in Southeast Texas, NASA reports an eclipse of 60 to 70 percent. For our area, the solar eclipse will begin at 11:46 a.m. that Monday, reaching a maximum at 1:16 p.m. before ending at 2:45 p.m. Never look directly at the sun, even during an eclipse. Anyone planning to view the solar eclipse should get what’s called solar viewing glasses. These pairs of specialized eyeglasses allow viewers to look at the sun during the eclipse. An online search shows solar viewing glasses can be ordered from a variety of retail outlets.
Business Development: The Houston Galveston Area Council Local Development Corporation and the City of Liberty will host a free business development stakeholder’s lunch meeting. That meeting is tomorrow from noon to 1 p.m. in the Liberty Center at City Hall. The meeting is free but participants are asked to RSVP by contacting April Gilliland at Liberty City Hall.
