DaytonCityCouncil: Months of what observers might call unsatisfactory communications between members of the Dayton City Council and the Liberty County Hospital District Board came to a head at Tuesday night’s Dayton City Council meeting. Liberty County Hospital District Board President Bruce Stratton and Board Treasurer Paul Henry were at the meeting to respond in person to council’s latest attempt to secure some guarantee of a district funded healthcare facility in Dayton. During the roughly 90 minute question and answer session, Dayton Mayor Felix Skarpa told Stratton council needed some guarantee of support to they would consider attempting to have the hospital district dissolved. More on this story in days to come.

Abshier on Arming Teachers: As the national debate continues over arming teachers, Liberty School Superintendent Dr. Cody Abshier said he can understand why some districts might consider that step, especially where there is no law enforcement agency close by. He said Liberty Police are near enough to respond quickly to any incident. Dr. Abshier said, at this point, as superintendent he has no interest in arming teachers.
