Grand Jury Dismissed: There has been some big city publicity about a Liberty County Grand Jury dismissed late last year by a vesting judge from Jefferson County. That was in response to a sealed motion from a special prosecutor who was hired following a request by that very grand jury. That dismissal came, according to some of their members, without any explanation. It has left many of the 12 local members scratching their head and even expressing anger. In most cases, grand juries hear information presented to them by the district attorney’s office. However, the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure says that grand juries “shall inquire into all offices liable to indictment of which any member may have knowledge, or of which they shall be informed by the attorney representing the state, or an other credible person.” End Quote. With out divulging anything from their secret proceedings, the six members of the grand jury said they were merely being responsive to information provided to them by credible local sources. Jury members emphasized their complaints are with the former office holders at the sheriff’s and district attorney’s office, not those elected officials who took office in 2013.


Fire: Whatappears to be a clear case of arson destroyed three buildings in the Moss Bluff area early Saturday morning. The Liberty County Sheriff’s Department reports a house sitter was told by an unknown caller that he should “get out or get hurt”.  The unidentified house sitter left the residence at the corner of CR 1333 and CR 1335. Shortly after that, the three structures were reported to be on fire. The fire is being investigated by Liberty County Sheriffs Department Arson Investigator Sgt. Brett Audilet.


New AD: LISD Superintendent Cody Abshier said he and Assistant Superintendent Randy Gunter are working to get the number of applicants, for Athletic Director down to their single personal recommendation to present to the full board in about two weeks.
