Hardin Man Pleads: In March of this year, Hardin resident Shannon Faircloth was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after it was alleged he struck Robert Ferguson in the head with an ax handle.  Following the incident, law enforcement could not locate Mr. Faircloth, and it was three days later when Shannon Faircloth turned himself into the Liberty County Sheriffs Department.  On Friday, Shannon Faircloth pled guilty and was sentenced 5 years in prison by 253rdDistrict Judge Chap Cain.


Miss Loretta: KSHN has learned of the sudden and unexpected passing of Loretta Millikan who was best known at the United Parcel Service driver in this area for many years.  She apparently suffered a heart attack while making Christmas cookies with her grandchildren. Services are pending at Allison Funeral Home.


Security Cameras: At their meeting last week, the Dayton City Council considered the purchase of additional lighting to improve security at the Daniel Park baseball field. Instead of more lighting, council showed interest in a less costly security upgrade. Matt Lanier, owner of A-1 Telcom outlined a security camera package for the park estimated to cost $36,700 with an additional cost of between $3,000 and $4,000 to make the park’s existing electrical system compatible with the security system. Council members could not take action because it was not on the agenda as an action item. It is expected council will formally consider security cameras at a future meeting.
