Boomerang Expanding: Liberty City Council met Tuesday and heard a presentation from Ken Long, general manager of Boomerang Tube in Liberty. We have reported Boomerang formerly topped out at more than 500 employees at their Liberty manufacturing plant before the oilfield decline resulted in a production slowdown and related layoffs. Now, according to Ken Long, Boomerang is planning a multi-million dollar expansion. He said recent changes in oilfield drilling techniques have created an increased demand for a heavier gauge tube product. Mr. Long said new processing and production equipment will be needed along with more space. After the expansion, he expects employment to once again top 500.
****************************************************
Dry Conditions: The U.S. Drought Monitor shows abnormally dry conditions across the southern portion of Liberty County and most of Chambers County. While the city of Liberty is currently above the average for rainfall through this point in the year, the last three months have been below the norm. KSHN maintains the official U.S. Weather Service gauge in the city of Liberty. During March, April and May, 9.77 inches were recorded at the official gauge. That is 1.59 inches below normal for those three months. As that below average rainfall has combined with unseasonably hot temperatures, conditions across the area have been drying out. According to the Texas A&M Forest Service, Liberty County is now in the moderate range for fire danger.
****************************************************
Sam Center: The public is invited to the grand reopening of the now fully renovated Sam Houston Library and Research Center Museum this Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. The center is located on FM 1011 in far north Liberty.
