Dayton School Trustee Position #2 Incumbent Baret Stephenson has an opponent in former Trustee Larry Wadzeck.


Mass Shootings: Addressing last week’s Liberty Rotary Club meeting, Liberty Police Chief Billy Tidwell said there does appear to be a correlation between mass shootings and those areas where guns are currently banned such as schools, churches and government buildings, but it is difficult to tell exactly what that connection is. Chief Tidwell made it clear he was not arguing for or against removing bans in so-called gun free areas, but information does indicate those who commit these crimes have no interest in confronting armed resistance.


Boomerang: The fast growing oil field related industry in Liberty, Boomerang has recently purchased an additional nine acres for ground storage area for inventory. According to Liberty City Manager Gary Broz the company bought property adjacent to Boomerang, and now employs more than 550.
