Fatality Wreck in Dayton: A three vehicle wreck yesterday morning in Dayton claimed the life of a Cleveland woman. Dayton police say a vehicle driven by Leslie Jo Bailey, 24, of Cleveland, was northbound, apparently at a high rate of speed. Police reports say the vehicle in front of her slowed to turn off Hwy 321. Attempting to avoid impact Ms. Bailey drove onto the improved shoulder, lost control and overcorrected. The Cleveland woman's car skidded into oncoming traffic and was struck by a third vehicle. JP Pct. #4 Barry Graves pronounced the woman dead. He then ordered an autopsy. The third vehicle was not struck and no one else was hurt.

DaytonSchoolTrustees Calls Bond Issue: The Dayton School Board, on Tuesday, agreed to set a bond election for November 4th. The election calls for bonds of more than $87 million to design, construct, renovate, and equip school facilities in the district and to buy necessary sites for those facilities. The big ticket item on the list will be two new elementary schools for grades K through 5 with an estimated price tag of $57 million.

LibertyCitysets tax rate: The Liberty City Council met Tuesday night to approve keeping the city's proposed tax rate unchanged at 59 cents per $100 of property value. We had reported on plans, by the city manager, to propose a 3 cent increase per hundred in the city tax rate. That idea was dropped when property value increases showed the city would receive the same revenue if they held the line on taxes.
