LISD: Liberty ISD Trustees have taken the first steps to hire a new athletic director, hopefully in mid to late February. The process began Monday night during a special meeting of the board. Liberty School Trustees met in a closed door session to develop a profile for the athletic director position and to discuss names of community members to serve on a recommendation committee.


Drive One: Right at 200 licensed drivers showed up Saturday at BJ Ford to participate in the Drive One for Liberty County Kids. The CPS program will get $20 for each of those. Ford Motor Company does check the list for duplications and then promptly writes a check to the benefiting organization. With Saturdays’ success that amount could be as much at $4,000.


CountyShelter: Work is under way on the site of Liberty County’s new emergency shelter and civic center on San Jacinto St. in Liberty. County Judge Craig McNair said SeTex Construction of Beaumont has already torn down and removed two existing structures. He said there is still some clean up work to be done before actual construction can begin on the 9,200 square foot building. When finished, the building will accommodate 250 people. Construction is expected to be finished by September 2013. A groundbreaking at the county shelter/civic center site is set for today at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend the ceremony.


Drought: There have been numerous media reports about worsening drought conditions in Texas. In our area, local rainfall has made a steady comeback in 2012, so the danger of another drought may not be readily apparent. Professor John Gammon Texas State Climatologist and head of the atmospheric sciences department at Texas A & M University said many of the lakes and reservoirs that supply water to our area have gotten enough periodic rain this year to keep Liberty and surrounding counties out of the severe drought range, at least so far.


Obituaries: Lou Ann Powell, 99 of Liberty. Interment was yesterday at Catholic Cemetery in Liberty. Milton Davis Jr., 64 of Hardin. Services today at 2 p.m. at Pace Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton.
