****************************************************
Dollar General Fire: The Office of the State Fire Marshall is investigating a fire that destroyed a Dollar General Store Sunday night near the intersection of Hwy 321 and Hwy 105, roughly six miles south of Cleveland. We are told a dozen fire departments took part in fighting the blaze, including the Tarkington, Cleveland, Hardin, Livingston, Kenefick, East Montgomery County, Central Montgomery County, Shepherd, Plum Grove and Hwy 321 departments. No one was injured, and there is no word yet on what may have started the blaze.
****************************************************
Dayton TIRZ: We have reported on the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone the city of Dayton has created to encourage industrial growth at the Gulf Inland Logistics Park on Hwy 146 South. Dayton City Manager Theo Melancon said the city is now in the process of putting the finishing touches to that TIRZ while beginning the process of creating a second tax reinvestment zone for the downtown area. Mr. Melancon said these tax increment reinvestment zones will serve both as an incentive for commercial development and as a way to delegate property tax increments to fund the city’s revitalization plan. Each zone will have an advisory board; however, it is not a taxing entity nor can it be used to raise property taxes inside the zone itself.
****************************************************
Driver Safety Reminder: Schools in Liberty and Chambers counties begin classes at varied times during the next two weeks. Kids will be excited, so Texas DPS officials are encouraging motorists to follow the law and be extra vigilant watching for bicyclists and pedestrians, especially around school buses as well as in and around school zones. Officials also urge drivers to put down their cell phones and obey all posted speed limits.
****************************************************
LCSO Employee of the Month: Deputy Katrena Johnston has been honored as the Liberty County Sheriff’s Employee of the Month. Sheriff’s Capt. Ken DeFoor said Deputy Johnston graduated from the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office’s Police Academy less than a year ago and works the night shift patrol division. Sheriff Rader encourages the public to join him in saluting Deputy Johnston for her service and a job well done.

Obituaries: Phillip Elwood Isham, 56, of Liberty. Service is 2 p.m. Thursday at Allison Funeral Service.
