Volume 29, No. 38 Tuesday, February 25, 2014


Fire: An over 2,000 square foot brick home in the Hardin area was destroyed by fire yesterday morning. The Hardin, Hull-Daisetta and Liberty Fire Departments all responded to the call for a structure fire on CR 2006, the 10 year-old home of Bill and Kathy Miller. It was a heartbroken plumber that was the apparent cause of the fire while using a torch for repairs. The Millers and their plumber are both said to be insured.


Man Conned: Last week, we reported on thieves attempt to scam local citizens to pay utility bills that, in most cases, have already been paid.  We learned that a foreign born immigrant businessman was taken in by the ruse for $1,000. Information is that man has been operating local stores in Hardin and Daisetta for a few years. He got a call threatening electric cut off if he didn’t pay his statement alleged to be $1,000, immediately. The victim pleaded, with the scammer, that his bill was paid. The business owner, who works seven days a week, feared he would be badly hurt by loss of power, and paid through what’s called Pay-Pal. He learned, after it was too late, he had been victimized. Quite simply, utility companies do not force payment in that manner. We are told local law enforcement agencies are looking into the allegations.


Teen Violence Awareness: February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness month. Meagan Mitchell with Bridgehaven Children’s Advocacy Center, said there are many long-term effects that come from teen dating violence. The Bridgehaven investigator said 1 in 4 girls report being a victim of verbal, physical, emotional or sexual abuse each year. Mitchell said 60 % of girls, and 51 % of boys say the couple was alone at the time of the violent incident. Also, 80% of girls who reported being abused continue to date their abuser. With those stats in mind Meagan Mitchell encourages others to help educate their child and themselves about violent crimes involving teens. To learn more, or have Meagan Mitchell speak to your group or organization, call (936) 258 0400.
