****************************************************
Rollback: Dayton City Council met Monday and officially called a Tax Rollback Election for May 5 at the same time of the Dayton City Council election. We reported a citizens’ petition calling for the rollback election was found to have enough valid signatures of registered voters and council was then legally required to hold an election. It gives Dayton residents an opportunity to lower the city’s fiscal year property tax rate from the adopted 67 cents per $100 of assessed property value to the rollback rate of just over 65.5 cents per $100 of value.

Tips Sought: Local law enforcement officials continue to investigate a number of armed robberies across a multi-county area. Two of those armed robberies occurred in the city of Liberty, one in Hardin and another in Dayton. Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor said investigators believe some of the armed robberies may be connected and they are asking for the public’s help in solving the crimes. The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office phone number is 936-336-4500. Those who wish to remain anonymous can report tips to Multi-County Crime Stoppers online at montgomerycountycrimestoppers.org or by phone toll-free at 1-800-392-7867.
****************************************************
Liberty Council Election: Three incumbents have filed to run in the May 5th Liberty City Council election. As expected, Liberty City Council member Paul Glazener joined fellow incumbents Mayor Carl Pickett and council member David Arnold in filing for re-election. At last report, the final incumbent whose term on Liberty City Council is expiring – Louie Potetz - had not yet decided whether he will file for a new council term. No other candidates have filed so far.
****************************************************
Academic Decathlon: The Liberty High School Academic Decathlon team is headed to state. On Saturday, the LHS students competed at the Region 3 meet, earning a third place finish in the Small School Division. Their region score was good enough for 4th place statewide, earning the locals a trip to the state Academic Decathlon. That meet will be held February 22 in Frisco. English teacher Randy Gunter is the team sponsor.

Obituaries: Patricia Avera Dyer, 85, of Cove. Service is 2 p.m. Saturday at Sterling Funeral Home of Dayton.
