DaytonMan Killed: A Dayton area man, Ryan Little, age 26 was killed in a multi-vehicle accident in Baytown Wednesday morning. Baytown police reportthat Mr. Little was traveling southbound on Highway146 at a high rate of speed in the center turn lane. Police say he was driving erratically and lost control. His vehicle crossed the center lane and drove into the northbound lane and was struck by a four-door sedan. A third vehicle, a FedEx delivery truck, was also traveling northbound and attempted to avoid striking the first two vehicles but crashed into them. Three occupants of the sedan were flown by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston with multiple injuries, including broken bones. Baytown Police said none of those injuries was life threatening. The driver of the FedEx truck was transported to Methodist San Jacinto Hospital in Baytown by ambulance for an injured leg. 


LISD Board Training: School trustees are required by Texas law to complete continuing education training every year. At the last school board meeting of the year, state law also required the current school board president to announce the name of each trustee along with the hours of training they completed that year. During Tuesday’s Liberty school board meeting, it was revealed that six of the seven trustees have met and exceeded those requirements. One however, Ron Mayo, has failed to complete the continuing education required by the state. Mr. Mayo had zero hours of training in each of the three categories this year. Last year Mr. Mayo fulfilled the requirements in two categories by had zero hours in the third. 


Commissioners Court: Liberty County Commissioners held their last meeting of 2013 yesterday. Commissioners took no action on an agenda item that called for repair on a road that leads to an antenna tower site in N. Liberty Co. County Attorney Wes Hinch said Harris County, who owns the tower, claimed Liberty County has a contractual obligation for road maintenance, but are yet to produce an agreement to that effect. So far, no one can determine the legal responsibility for road maintenance. The Liberty Co. Sheriffs Department uses the tower for their equipment, free of charge, but there does not appear to be a contract dealing with road maintenance.
