Fatality/Road Rage: The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what appears to be a road rage incident that led to the death of a Cleveland teenager Wednesday around 8:50 p.m. Liberty County Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor said 17-year-old Johnathan Michael Perez was killed when his vehicle was struck from behind, causing it to roll over several times on C.R. 3478B in the Plum Grove area of north Liberty County. A second teen in Perez’s vehicle was transported to an area hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released. Investigators say it appears that, prior to the rollover accident, the two teens may have been involved in some type of incident that caused a road rage to escalate into a fatal crash. Anyone with info is asked to call the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office at 936-336-4500.

DISD: Dayton school trustees met Tuesday and approved the district’s property tax rate for 2018-2019 Fiscal Year. School trustees approved a tax rate $1.37 per $100 of assessed property value. That rate is two cents less than last year’s tax rate of $1.39 per $100. The coming fiscal year’s expenditure budget for the Dayton ISD’s General Fund is $47,165,250 - that is a slight reduction from last year’s $47,169,019.

Driver License Offices: The Texas Association of Counties is reporting a number of DPS driver licenses offices could be closed, including the ones in Liberty and Cleveland. Texas Legislative Sunset Commission staff and various state agencies have been filing their recommendations for consideration by the commission. That state legislative commission is scheduled to meet next Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 29 and 30. Texas Association of Counties reports that DPS is among the agencies under review this year, and one recommendation required DPS to develop and implement a plan to close inefficient driver license offices. That has resulted in a staff recommendation to close 87 offices across the state. Now is the time to contact members of the Sunset Commission and your local legislators to share concerns over the proposed closures. One member of the Sunset Commission is Senator Robert Nichols. He represents Senate District 3, which includes Liberty County plus 18 other counties in East Texas. His office can be reached by phone in Austin at 512-463-0103 or in Jacksonville at 903-589-3003. The Jacksonville fax number is 903-589-0203.
