FM 1960 Improvements: Road construction to make safety improvements along FM 1960 is expected to begin in coming weeks. Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Mark Shepherd said that road project contract was recently awarded to low-bidder, Smith and Company. A pre-construction meeting is coming up in two weeks. At that meeting, a start date will be set.  Mr. Shepherd said work should begin fairly quickly following that gathering.


FLNB Stockholders: First Liberty National Bank held its annual stockholders meeting Friday. In a news release we learned that FLNB stockholders re-elected their present board members. During the meeting stockholders heard that last year the Bank’s assets grew approximately $14 million. Earnings and asset quality remained strong. First Liberty National Bank was founded in 1913 by a group of local citizens and is the largest locally owned financial institution in Liberty County.


City/School Board Election: Candidate filing is underway for the May 11thcity council and school district elections. The city of Hardin has three positions up for election. So far, no one has filed for any of those spots. The Hardin school board also has three incumbents whose terms are expiring. To date, only incumbent Kevin Ladd has indicated he does not intend to run for re-election. In the City of Daisetta, there are two council seats up for re-election for which no one has filed. There are also two Hull-Daisetta school trustees whose terms are almost up. No filing for either spot so far.


HomesteadExemption: Homeowners in the Cleveland ISD will be receiving cards in the mail from the Liberty County Central Appraisal District allowing them to update the status of their homestead property tax exemption. Chief Appraiser Allen Conner said it is only necessary to contact his office if the property tax exemption on your primary residence has changed. The Liberty County Chief Appraiser also said it’s important to report when homestead exemptions no longer apply. Failing to do so can result in a big bill for back taxes.


Obituaries: Wanda Sue Fenoglio, 84 of Hutto. Services 2 p.m. today at Sterling Funeral Home in Dayton.
