LISD Security Check: Liberty School Superintendent Dr. Cody Abshire said Liberty ISD is looking at ways to improve security for students across the district. Security Consultant Robert Bookout has been on the Liberty campuses doing a security assessment. Mr. Bookout said one thing his company suggests, based on suggestions from the Secret Service Agency, is as simple as locking a classroom door while class is in session, not only when something happens. Robert Bookout will present a report on what the district could do to improve security on all the campuses to the school district for their review.


Commissioners Honored: Liberty County Judge Craig McNair presented outgoing Commissioners Melvin Hunt and Todd Fontenot with plaques of appreciation during Tuesday’s regularly scheduled meeting. It was the final assembly of the year, and the last official public meeting for the two elected officials.


DaytonSchoolBoard: The Dayton School Board met Tuesday night to consider a single agenda item. Dayton School Superintendent Mike Kurht said school trustees voted to upgrade the school district’s financial management and accounting computer software. Mr. Kurht said the upgrade will cost Dayton ISD close to $30,000. Trustees approved that upgrade.


Live Nativities: First United Methodist Church of Liberty will be holding its annual live Nativity on Christmas Eve. That’s Monday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 in the courtyard of the church facing Main Street. All are welcome. Hardin United Methodist will present their live Nativity tomorrow and Sunday night from 6 p.m. to 7:30 next to State Highway 146 about a quarter mile north of the intersection of FM 834.


Tax Deductions: Local Certified Public Accountant Byron Swaim said for those who can influence when they receive income, they should try to do that before the end of the year. With many tax experts predicting a tax increase, that income could then fall on this year’s tax rate. He suggested getting statements to customers and clients before the end of the year. Another way to lessen the impact of the expected higher taxes according to CPA Swaim is, if possible, to wait until 2013 to make payments that could be deducted from those higher taxes.
