Cleveland Hospital: Cleveland Regional Medical Center closed most of its operations temporarily late last week. According to the hospital’s Chief Administrator Glenda Rinker, they expect new ownership to take over the North Liberty County medical facility sometime this week. Ms. Rinker said currently they are suspending admissions to the hospital and surgical services. The emergency room is open, but ambulances with critical patients are being diverted to other hospitals. Also, Chuck Fulner has stepped down as CEO. He is charged with misdemeanor assault following an altercation with another hospital administrator back on March 20. At last report, Fulner was not in custody but was making arrangements through an attorney to surrender.


Republic of Texas: A self-professed member of the separatist group the Republic of Texas was recently found guilty for failing to display a legally issued Texas license plate on his vehicle. Instead, Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch said Lionell Lemelle’s motor vehicle had only a homemade license plate identifying him as a member of the Republic of Texas. Mr. Lemelle was found guilty by a jury in Judge Tommy Chambers’ County Court-at-Law. That same jury sentenced the Ames resident to one-year probation and a $1,500 fine.


Egg Hunt: There was a large crowd gathered Saturday for the 30th Annual KSHN Easter Egg Hunt in Liberty City Park. Kids 9 and under enjoyed picking up the 5,000 candy-filled plastic eggs plus the more than 90 prize eggs. There were also three grand prize eggs. The three big prize winners include Amelia Contreras, 9, of Liberty who rode away on a new bike. The next big winner was 18-month-old Mason Brown of Liberty. His family chose the powered scooter. The third large prize egg was found by 17-month-old Abraham Richardson of Baytown. He got the State Farm wagon provided by Victor Barranco. A special thanks to Troop 64 Boys Scouts from Dayton, volunteers from First Baptist Church of Liberty, and city staff who helped get the hunt area ready. Also, a big tip of the hat to all the sponsors who make this annual Easter Egg hunt possible.
