Tragic End to Search: The body of Baytown police officer John Stewart Beasley, who had been missing since last Thursday, has been recovered less than a mile from his home. At a press conference yesterday morning, Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne reported the 23-year veteran of the Baytown Police Department died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Chambers County Justice of the Peace Pct. 6 Larry Cryer is conducting the inquest and has ordered an autopsy. Stewart Beasley had strong local connections. He spent the early part of his life in Liberty, and some family members still live here. It was back in April when James Stewart Beasley’s father, John Beasley, was found dead in his yard here in Liberty near the intersection of Edgewood and Kipling. That Mr. Beasley was also deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The family tragedy broadens when we further learned from Liberty police that approximately 10 years ago, officer Beasley’s sister died tragically, and that was also ruled a suicide.

LHS Time Change: There has been a change to the start and end time at Liberty High School for the coming year. Please note - this change does not affect the other Liberty ISD campuses. New LHS Principal Benicia Bendele said the change should make the school day more efficient. It will also allow time for individual student academic help before school. Liberty High School will now start classes at 8:20 a.m. with school letting out at 3:45 p.m. LHS teachers must be on campus at 7:30 a.m. on school days. The first day of classes in the Liberty school district is Thursday, August 16. For more information on the new start and end time at Liberty High School, call 936-336-6483.

Electrical Dilemma: We have reported on the multi-million dollar upgrades to the city of Liberty’s electrical distribution system that have been under way for more than a year. Liberty’s Interim City Manager Larry Shaw says progress on the electrical upgrades is continuing but more slowly than he would like. Mr. Shaw said the problem is the Liberty Electrical Department is so understaffed that the city has been forced to use those outside contractors performing the electrical system improvements for the city’s day-to-day electrical maintenance and repairs. He said the solution is to hire more qualified line technicians to beef up the city’s electrical crews.
