Accidental Shooting: Dayton police say a 2-year-old is expected to survive a gunshot wound to the chest. That accidental shooting occurred Tuesday night on Milo Street. Dayton PD Sgt. Doug O’Quinn said the little boy was playing at his uncle’s house while his mother was there eating dinner, and somehow got hold of his uncle’s 9 mm handgun, accidentally discharging the pistol. The bullet struck the boy in the chest. Dayton police say any charges are pending their investigation.


Council OK’s Project: Tuesday night, the Liberty City Council gave their support to a proposed Eagle Scout project to install warning signs at four different points on the Trinity River. Those signs, in both English and Spanish, would warn of the dangers of swimming in the river. The proposed project by Drew Dugger of Liberty would place one sign at the Port of Liberty, 2 at the Hwy 90 Bridge in Liberty and more signs at Hwy 105 and FM 787.


Flu: While experts are predicting a busy flu season for Texas, locally the number of confirmed cases is only slightly higher than normal. Mark Nichols, Director of Nursing at the Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center said they are seeing a lot of flu-like symptoms, as they usually do this time of year, but to date the hospital and clinic report 19 confirmed flu cases so far. Dr. Steven Ellerbe at the Liberty Medical Surgical Clinic said there is no better protection from illness, including the flu, than frequent hand washing. Dr. Ellerbe said flu shots are also recommended since other areas are reporting more flu cases than normal. That could be an indication of a tough flu season still ahead.


DaytonCity Council: Dayton City Council Monday night approved adding a cleaning fee to the rental rate for the community center ballroom. The reason, according to Dayton City Manager David Douglas, is to pay for an outside company to come in after events at the Dayton Community Center to clean it up.  He said the additional $3500 to lease the entire ballroom and $250 for leasing half, will relieve those who use the facility from any cleaning responsibilities.


Obituaries: Sandy Louviere, 60 of Dayton. Services today at 2 p.m. at Pace Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton.
