****************************************************
Unemployment Falling: The employment picture for Liberty County is improving; however, the local jobless rate still remains higher than both the statewide and national figures. According to the Texas Workforce Commission, the unemployment rate for April here in Liberty County was 5.8 percent. That is improved from 6.3 percent in March. The jobless rate for all Texas dropped to 3.8 percent in April while the U.S. unemployment figure for April dipped to 3.7 percent. Here’s an interesting statistic – of the 155.35 million people across America reportedly working during April, 13.34 million live right here in Texas. That means about 1 out of every 12 jobs nationally is here in the Lone Star State.
****************************************************
Runoff Election Today: The Republican and Democrat Runoff Elections are today throughout Texas, but only one race involves Liberty County voters. That’s the Democrat runoff for Texas governor between former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez and Houston businessman Andrew White. Only those who voted in the March Democrat Primary or who did not vote in any primary at all are eligible to vote in today’s Democrat runoff here in Liberty County. Voting is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today by consolidated precinct. If you have questions, call the Liberty County Clerk’s Office at 936- 336-4670.
****************************************************
Water Needed: Firefighters and rescue workers are great men and women, available every day to save and protect property and lives. When first-responders arrive at an emergency they get bunkered out in heavy protective gear. In the very hot conditions, almost immediately this effort raises their body heat. That’s when they need water or Gatorade type drinks to keep from endangering their lives. Those life-saving drinks are required to properly hydrate their bodies. These volunteers work without pay and need these fluids to survive. Without your help, they then reach into their own pockets. So, the next time you are shopping, please pick up a case or two of bottled water or Gatorade type drinks. Then drop off the supplies at the volunteer fire department near where you live or work. Leave them at the fire department door, and they will be much appreciated.

Obituaries: Jesse Ryan Morris, 28, of Dayton. Service is 11 a.m. Wednesday at Sterling Funeral Home in Anahuac.
