Early Voting: Early voting for the May 11 city council and school board elections starts today and continues through Tuesday, May 7.

Meth Lab Busted: A 27-year-old Liberty County man faces drug charges after the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department raided, what investigators are calling, a methamphetamine lab. Sheriff’s Captain Ken DeFoor said last Thursday morning’s raid on C.R. 2065, between Hardin and Moss Hill, also turned up what appeared to be an explosive device. It was destroyed at that location by the Baytown Police Department Bomb Squad. Now, 27-year-old David Rives is charged with Manufacturing and Delivery of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance. Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Stephen Hebert set bail at $25,000 on each charge. David Rives is free on bond.


DISD Top Teachers: For the 81st time, Dayton Rotary Club and Dayton ISD leaders gathered last Thursday night for an annual awards ceremony. Perhaps the most cherished honor is what’s called the Wall of Fame honoree. That is a lifetime achievement award, and this year’s recipient is Larry Wadzeck. Those Dayton educators honored as Teacher of the Year for their campus include Heydi Juarez from Colbert Elementary; Diana Campbell – SFA; Anna Morgan from Richter; and Sara Williams at Kimmie Brown. Top elementary teacher overall was Anna Morgan. Other top teachers on their secondary campuses are Jacquelyn Johnson at Nottingham; Abby McDonald of Woodrow Wilson; and Lauri Lumas Elliot from Dayton High School. Anna Morgan was overall secondary teacher of the year.
