Former Game Warden Found Guilty: A jury in the 253rdDistrict Court has found former longtime Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden Danny Diaz guilty of the charge of Official Oppression. The decision came early yesterday afternoon, and the punishment phase began shortly afterwards. KSHN reported in April last year that Diaz was indicted for official oppression related to a traffic stop. Daniel Diaz was a game warden for 27 years before retiring in January 2012.


Stratton on E.H.T.: We reported Dayton City officials have been in discussions with a company called Emergency Hospitals of Texas about possibly locating a clinic in Dayton. Emergency Hospitals representatives have also talked with Bruce Stratton, President of the Liberty County Hospital District Board about the prospect of a new urgent care facility. Mr. Stratton said talks have specifically centered on an agreement that would allow a future Dayton Emergency Clinic to bill Medicare and Medicaid, something Emergency Hospitals of Texas is not licensed to do. Hospital District President Bruce Stratton said he believes such an agreement can be accomplished.


Hung Jury: A Liberty County jury failed to reach consensus in the trial of Justin Garrett, accused of intoxicated assault with a vehicle and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Those charges stem from an accident in 2010 where one of the victims, Lisa Kenney, still requires around the clock medical care. During the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Garrett’s blood-alcohol level exceeded the legal limit at the time of the accident. After deliberating for around 5 ½ hours total, the jury remained deadlocked. So, 75thDistrict Judge Mark Morefield declared a hung jury. Justin Garrett is expected to be retried, possibly later this month.


LHS Lit Crit: The Liberty High School Literary Criticism Team has done it again. For the second meet in a row, LHS captured first place, defeating 2ndplace Baytown Sterling by more than 50 points. LHS also swept individual awards for first thru fifth place.


Obituaries: Robert Dee Minchew, 65 of Liberty. Funeral services tomorrow at 2 p.m. in Liberty Church of Christ.
