Volume 28, No. 94 Thursday, May 16, 2013

Assault Arrest: Working rapidly, the Dayton Police Department arrested a suspect in the felony burglary and attempted rape of a 56-year-old Dayton grandmother. Police are accusing a Dayton man, Kyle Antoine, living in the same general area as the victim’s residence in the FM 1960 area. That location is inside the Dayton city limits. Between 5:30 and 6 Tuesday evening, police arrested Kyle Antoine, age 27. He is now in the Liberty County Jail under a $100,000 bond, charged with Burglary of a Habitation with intent to commit sexual assault.


Courthouse Security: The planned security system of the Liberty County Courthouse has been postponed. Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader said they hope to have it up and running by June 1st. Many of the parts of the system don’t work.


LISD: Liberty school trustees will meet tonight in special session to canvass Saturday’s election results and consider hiring a new principal for Liberty High School. Saturday’s vote count saw incumbent June Jackson and newcomer Jeffrey Smart tied with 196 votes each. That triggers an automatic recount that trustees can request after tonight’s meeting. If the vote remains tied, the winner could be determined by a coin toss or one of the two withdrawing. If not that, then Liberty school board can order a second election to settle the issue.


LibertyCityCouncil: At Tuesday’s Liberty City Council meeting, a public discussion was held on the possibility of an ordinance banning smoking in public buildings as well as another that would ban talking on the phone or texting while driving. While Liberty Mayor Carl Pickett supports both measures, he wanted in put from both fellow council members and the public before moving forward. Given Tuesday night’s discussions,, it appears any ordinance banning smoking in buildings or one that controls cell phone use while driving in the city will not be coming up for a vote anytime soon.

Services Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Our Mother of Mercy Catholic Church in Ames. Melvin Earl Strickland, 74 of Cleveland. Services 3 p.m. today at Pace Stancil Funeral Home in Cleveland.
