Employment Numbers: Employment numbers for Liberty County have shown steady improvement during the past two years. Texas Workforce Commission reports January unemployment for Liberty County was 7.8 percent. That is a drop from the first month of 2012 when unemployment was 10.1 percent. The nationwide unemployment figure was 6.6 percent in January while the Texas rate is now down to 5.7 percent. Of the 145.22 million people across America reportedly working during January, 12.3 million live right here in Texas. That means about 1 out of 12 jobs nationally is here in the Lone Star State.  

****************************************************

Primary Runoff: Once the dust settled following last Tuesday’s Primary Election, there are now three local Republican races to be settled with a runoff. Both Democrats and Republicans also have at least one statewide runoff contest. Those party runoff elections are set for May 27. Anyone who voted in the March 4 primary election can only cast a ballot in that same party’s runoff. So, if you voted in the GOP primary, you can not vote in the Democrat primary runoff and vice versa. However, those who did not vote in either primary are eligible to participate in the party runoff of their choice on May 27.

****************************************************

Veterans Parade: Plans are under way for the first Liberty County Veterans Recognition Parade on June 7. Mark McClelland, retired USAF colonel and former Liberty County tax collector, is working with county veterans’ associations and local officials to make that parade a reality. While the parade is specifically intended to honor World War II vets, military veterans of all ages and branches of service are invited to take part. Mr. McClelland said they will need floats and sponsors. Contact information will be announced soon, but for now, mark June 7 on your calendar for that veterans’ recognition parade.

****************************************************

Dayton: The City of Dayton has been working on a $2.6 million water well project for some time. City Manager David Douglas said, once rehab on the storage tank is complete, they will advertise for bids for a new pump station. That project should be complete, with water pumping to citizens, by late May.
