School Zone Safety: It’s that time of year where students are returning to school and motorists are urged to take extra caution. As a reminder, Texas law prohibits vehicles from passing any school bus that is stopped with its red lights flashing. In addition, state law prohibits the use of any wireless communication device by those operating a motor vehicle in a designated school zone. There are two defenses to prosecution of violation of that state law - #1 using a handheld phone to call for an emergency response service or #2 if the school zone does not have posted signage notifying the public of that law. 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 the Dayton City Council, that city does not have those signs in place. Nevertheless, all drivers are reminded it’s always safer to put your cell phone down and keep your eyes on the road.

211 Registration: We’ve reported the historical peak of the hurricane season is from mid-August to late October. Experts are urging residents to remain vigilant and not to be lulled into a false sense of security. For those who might need help evacuating should a hurricane make landfall in our area, that preparation means registering with the state for any help you or your loved ones might need. Liberty County Emergency Management Coordinator Tom Branch said registration is easy and should be done by calling 2-1-1 or going online to the state registry called the State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry. Even if you registered in past years, you still need to re-signup again each and every year. You can access that state registration online site from our homepage at www.kshn.com.

Solar Eclipse: Millions of eyes were gazing skyward yesterday as the solar eclipse captured the interest of the young and young at heart across America. Here in Liberty County, Liberty Middle School handed out more than 1,000 pairs of specialized viewing glasses so locals could join in the fun. Elisha Lemelle is a science teacher at LMS who helped organize that viewing party. She was pleased so many people were interested in watching. The next total solar eclipse in North America will take place April 8, 2024. Major cities in the path of that one include Dallas.
