Volume 29, No. 131 Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Burglary: Liberty police are asking the public's help in finding those responsible for a smash-and-grab burglary at Coat's Jewelry on Main St. yesterday morning. According to Liberty PD Lt. Chip Fairchild, that downtown business was struck around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday. Police say a number of stylish Fossil brand women's watches were stolen. In total, about $5,000 in merchandise was taken in the break-in. Anyone with information or who knows someone trying to sell Fossil watches is asked to call the Liberty Police Department at (936) 336 7395.

Changes Coming: One section of downtown Dayton will undergo significant changes in the months ahead. Dayton City Manager David Douglas said the owner of a piece of Bryan Street property is going to remove the old Quonset huts and put a commercial building in their place. Douglas said no businesses have committed to locating there - that will come later. Also, the Dayton City Manager said Boyd Arnold will be buying property on Bryan St. across from the Vineyard, with plans to donate that area to the city for a new parking lot.

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

Commissioners: During yesterday's county commissioners meeting, Sheriff Bobby Rader told commissioners in the budget request process, he had originally requested $350,000 for his fuel budget however it was reduced to $250,000. With that, he went on to say fuel for the sheriffs department has always been a problem. Ultimately, $50,000 - not the $80,00 the sheriff was requesting, was moved from indigent health care budget into the sheriff's department fuel budget. That comes with the knowledge Sheriff Rader may have to come back before the end of the budget cycle.

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

DaytonCityCouncil: The Dayton City Council got some good news Monday night. Topping the list was an unexpected upgrade in their bond rating from Standard and Poors. City Manager David Douglas said the city recently received notification that their bond rating has been upgraded to Double A Minus.

Obituaries: Donna Lynn Dryden Patterson-Harris, 65 of Liberty. Memorial service tomorrow 10 a.m. at Faith and Family Funeral Service in Batson.
