Shooting Sends One To Hospital

 Warning to young people. Never mess with an elderly person. They are too old to care if they screw you up.

The City of Liberty sign coming in on Hwy 90 has the 2 cement Liberty bells (one on each side of sign) and rose bushes (or whatever they are) covering up the bells and half the sign. It seems like there could be another way to landscape all that so it can be seen.

The Trade Days at the Dayton Center this past weekend was a flop; what has happened to all the events at the Center. 

The Dayton Trade Days was the worst I’ve ever seen it.

Are the rumors of widening highway 90 from Devers to Liberty true?

Matthew Posten excepted his mistake and immediately announced his findings of said mistake. County Commissioner Leon Wilson immediately took action to fix Matthews mistake and for what I understand did a great job on the road. Mr. Wilson is not to blame, all he did is seek the guidance in the county attorney to ensure the rightful path. This is what Matthew is elected to do; it’s his job. Unfortunately in this one instance the county records going back numerous years prior to Leon Wilson‘s election were not properly updated. What we should be asking is what office / County employee was responsible for said records and what is the county going to do to assure the public this mistake is a one time occurrence. We also should be concerned about the liberty County CAD office not having appropriate records. But I do agree with the other post, legal action should be taken against those slandering any innocent individual and this does include our elected officials in Liberty County. This kind of slander should not be tolerated in our community. But I do not agree that county commissioner should have to fund this legal defense. 

 I hope Commissioner Wilson does sue those fools. Get in their back pocket will stop thier lies. 

Mr. Poston has done a good job. I did not know him before he took office but he seems to be bright and he also has a great reputation for being very ethical. Good to hear about a politician these days. 

I have only known Matthew Poston a short time but I can tell you two things about him, he is an ethical and Godly man. Did Mr. Poston make an error, you bet. Did Mr. Poston take responsibility for the error, you bet. Looks like the end of the story to me. Move on! 

 I seen a post on Facebook that called for Commission Wilson to apologize for not fixing a road. This man has nothing to apologize for, the person who made the mistake released a statement taking full responsibility. For what I understand from other posts, the very next day; first thing that day; Commissioner Wilson corrected the wrong and fixed the road. All those residents in my opinion should be thanking commissioner Wilson for his fast reaction to the press release. We all should learn by mistakes from the past commissioner. He was indicted for spending County money on private property; has everyone forgotten this ? I rather have a commissioner that takes time and checks his facts to ensure no wasteful speeding and he is not breaking the law. Commissioner Wilson is not my commissioner unfortunately, try living under Commissioner Reeves Pct. than you will have something to complain about.

It really makes very little sense to have our high school start later than the younger grades. If someone has to wait for the bus when the daylight is yet to come, it is better for it to be someone older. I don't know if the Superintendent has just not paid attention to this or what but the school board needs to remedy the poor scheduling. It is safer for children. Liberty should rethink all of its safety areas and make sure there are not other things they are doing like this. Start high school first (earliest). No excuses. Safety first. 

To the person complaining that Liberty lets high school start later than the other campuses, move. Over here, and in most places, we have less politics and more common sense. 

Let the smart people run the school and just get your kid to school at the time they have told you. This community complains about the school and the courthouse too much. 

Our schools start the latest and let out the latest for younger children. Besides schedules like ours being safer for smaller younger children in the morning, it also allows old children to get out of school earlier with more time to take care of things in the afternoon while younger ones are in a safe environment at school while parents work. 

The late start for Liberty High School was set up for kids like mine who are always late. It didn't help. He is still late at least twice a month. 

I am not complaining but I do agree Liberty High School starting school so late is a bit of a problem for our family. I wish they would start when most high schools start. Starting after eight o'clock does not prepare young people for reality anyway. 

I hear the city hit us again, hiring untrained electrical workers, who will probably be the same as the ones who were or still are here. Know there were companies who have worked replacing California electricity to cities, and electricity to cities after hurricane Florence in the east, and they were rejected for the cheaper people, not the ones of knowledge of city electrical workings. I paid $1600 to have a new electrical box put in my house, only to have the same problem, so after calling the city mamager, finally they sent a machine out with bucket, got to top of pole, the squirrels had chewed the wires in places. But I didn't get my money back. recently the lights went out, for a short time, after I called, they said I don't have a problem, they looked at the meter, it was running at the time, but wonder if wires on the pole are being attacked again. 

 Local radio said Liberty ISD just came out with a new and somewhat different than past school calendars. There was no mention of changing the start times for different schools in the district. I would like to attend the school board meeting when this comes up. Our high school has a ridiculously late start time and it needs to change.

Devers ISD has plans to have four day school week next year. Is Liberty ISD considering the same? Is high school in Liberty sticking with their late start date for their school day? What time do they start I heard it is the latest start in Texas? 8:45?

I would like the editor of i-dineout to ask for a statement from all of the folks running for city council. Incumbents too. Liberty is in a race for the future and in many areas we have been left 25 or so years behind. Thank you.

The manager of the FB site Dayton 411 posts all these patriotic Trump anti liberal posts but if youcall him out on the posts that are just plain BS he will ban you from commenting. He doesn't have the courage of his convictions. He follows the most ridiculous of ideas right into the proverbial rabbit hole,then again what is to be expected from Dayton. 

Dayton 411 information page His name is Mike O Smith, he's nothing more than a bag of hot wind. He's like a child if you play differently than he does, he take his toys and goes home. lol he doesn't work and relies on his family to support him, but hey he's king of facebook and isn't that all that really matters? He's been called out several times, but instead of manning up, he chooses to hide behind his keyboard or his wife's skirt. Just feel sorry for him and pray, that one day he will grow up and be a man. 

That dude is weird. I don’t get on any of his 411 crap.

I don’t look at the Mike O Smith pages. He doesn’t understand that he’s not welll liked.

Mike O. Smith also doesnt understand that even people that agree with him wish he would get right. 

 Mike O Smith is full of falsehoods and when you call him out on them he deletes you from his 411 pages. It’s kind of comical when he gets called out! 

Dayton 411 ran by Mike Smith is What’s wrong with our world today. I have un-friended that page and most people that feeds into his uneducated, unfounded, slandering lies. I am shocked there are so many stupid people that believe what others stay instead of doing their own research. This man is overwhelmingly stupid and unwilling to educate himself. 

I’ve been told that Mike O Smith has Felony Conviction and is a Thief.

Mike’O Smith Runs Dayton 411 like a dictatorship, he will block you if you don’t follow his fake news that he and what I believed to be fake Facebook profiles that he has created to appear to have friends so he may sprouts his BS. All I can say is anyone that joins in with him spouting all the slanderous, deformation of character harmful BS to our community has got to know they also could be held accountable. At least this page has alerted us to all non-self thinkers that will follow anything with a loudmouth. Anyone on that follows his page has to believe in socialism. Kind of brings back a history lesson of Hitler if you are different , he will knock you off or in this case block you from the page. This is what’s wrong with our country, everyone sits around and talks about people and their actions like Mike’O Smith and all his fake news but very few are will take action. This is how we all can take part in changing our country back, one small step. I Made that change By blocked and removed his trash from my Facebook page. I have also blocked individuals and/or all Mike’s fake friends / Facebook profiles that has contributed to spreading false hoods and harming our community. 

 He is a dictator and a bully. I’ve gotten off of his 411 pagess. Someone needs to contact Facebook about him as I have.

 I was not blocked by Mike Smith but I choose not to partake in all that unnecessary fake drama and it was only a matter of time before he blocked me anyway. Because I have my own mind and I also can think for myself. We all know he can’t have a adult conversation or debate without using childish name calling and blocking anyone with any amount of intelligence. I have also I blocked other for taking part in him brainless unfounded rumors. I can’t understand what is missing in his and the others life that’s on his page to have to reduce our community to such gossip. 

Dayton 411 information page His name is Mike O Smith, he's nothing more than a bag of hot wind. He's like a child if you play differently than he does, he take his toys and goes home. lol he doesn't work and relies on his family to support him, but hey he's king of facebook and isn't that all that really matters?

Mike O Smith is a keyboard Sissy and is a black eye on our community.

Mike Smith is nothing but a childish lying troublemaker . What he is doing is defamation of character to a public official where is the county attorneys on this matter .

Mike O Smith is nothing but a gossip community hating troublemaker. Matthew admitted the mixup on the road was his fault and he took ownership to his mistakes. But yet select individuals On that Dayton Texas 411 page are having to much fun slandering a 30+ year police officer and a Country Commissioner that has lived in our community all his life. Leon Wilson has always been a positive influence on our community and everyone spreading harmful defamation of character lies about him are the individuals we do not need in our community. They continue to spread legend illegal activities lies about an upstanding community member with no true evidence. They should be ashamed of their selves and they should bitch-slap the individuals lying to them ; making them look even more ignorant than they are for believing without Proof. Matthew should go above and beyond to clear Leon Wilson‘s name not only for Leon but for liberty County. I also think Leon Wilson should also file charges on all individuals involved. I will personally financially contribute to his legal defense and I know others that have said the same thing. We are fed up with this trash in our community.

Dayton Texas 411 page ran by Mike O Smith is the most childish Facebook page there has ever been. This man has done nothing but tear down our community and lies to everybody on that page that he’s doing it for the community. This man “allegedly” has multiple fake Facebook pages to make himself look like he has allies. I do not believe we have that many uneducated small minded people that believe everything they hear without seeing an actual proof. This man and all his fake allies are a Minnis not only to our community but society. People that continues to talk trash and spread rumors but not willing to take action about all the legal activities he “allegedly” knows about; just proves to me he’s either 1) a coward or 2) a crooked liar. 

So fed up with Mike O Smiths attitude and judgment of everybody. Doesn’t he know we only care about GODS judgement. He has to know he is unliked within our community, just as much as all his made up friends on Facebook. People stop feeding into his drama, find your entertainment elsewhere. All he is doing is harming our community and you are just as guilty.

 just got utility bill. wondering if others are getting the extreme fuel charge that I'm getting. electric bill, $99, fuel bill, $209. know others have to pay their bill from soc sec checks, what does It leave for other living expense. why and when will this end. our property tax, insurance, and utilities are what we live for. 

I do not think the problem with high utilities bills will ever be solved while a Pickett or one of their little friends is the mayor. 

Liberty Utilities: People are talking about this. Well, your chance to make a change is on the horizon. There are 3 challengers to the incumbent positions and one special election for the unexpired term. You voice can be heard and you can make a change. If you do not vote, you cannot complain about the rates. Remember years ago when there was a change at city hall and things got better, rates were lowered. It has been a long time coming, but change is needed once again and swing the majority back to the people and away from the status quo. Good Luck!

KSHN said to today that Dayton City Council did renew the Dayton Chamber contract to run the civic center, what big pile of personal agenda. KSHN said Council member Alvin B was the only one to speak up. He’s seen the writing on the wall that the rest of us Dayton residents. Not surprised to hear John Johnson made the motion to pass it, but I am very shocked to hear Wendell Null Second the vote. I wasn’t very excited about Alvin being on Council but turns out he likes to speak his own mind. I WAS WRONG! I HAD positive thoughts on Wendell being on Council but that has passed. Why is my tax money being spent on funding this private nonprofit, us tax payers were not asked? I am not surprised that John and Jeff are for this waste of tax money. Alan Conner is on the Chamber board so is John and Jeff worked with Alan for years at the CAD office. I smell something funny. John is a developer and Alan is a Real Estate agent. Does Jeff still work at the CAD office, please tell me he’s not the boss of that office. 

Well it appears Mr Null has become one of the good Ole Boys. Wonder what he’s getting out of this. 

Dayton City Manager stated on KSHN that the prisons use of about 40 to 50 thousand gals of water a mth. He was only about 100 thousand gals off. What else is he guessing about??? 

I also had positive thoughts about Mr. Null but I see he is becoming a disappointment its ashame 

Wendell Null May know something the public don’t. I know he is a smart person and is community minded and would not of made that vote knowing all the unhappy community members there are. 

They don’t understand what we deal with on a weekly bases. Things have gotten worse and it is terribly disappointing that Mr Null has turned his head to us after we supported him. 

I couldn’t care less about who the manager is over the Dayton Civic center as long as the City runs it and not a private nonprofit. Although The old staff was sufficient. I don’t agree with the Dayton Chambers managing my tax money. I mean they have proven they can’t run their own office. And they have in my opinion decreased the public activities that was desperately need. 

I totally care who runs the Civic Center that my tax money paid for. What happened to Miss Wilson and the rest of that awesome staff is completely unfair, underhand and I do know it all came from the Director of the Dayton Chambers. Everyone around town is taking about it. That Director know the individuals on City Council that would support this type of Underhanded work. Wish someone had a backbone to stand up for what’s right. We keep hearing Dayton is going to grow, well this just shows me our current city council can’t and will not be able to handle what growth we have coming. I mean think about it, we paid millions for a Center and had multiple successful events in my opinion; and now we have what???? No events.

The Dayton Center has become a joke just like the office that is running it. I do believe there’s more under the table hand shakes going on with that office and some of the City Council members to put this kind of BS together. I am shocked that the city has allowed the center to decline in activities after spending so much time and tax money to build up the activities. It just makes no sense at all, therefore it only leaves ones mind to wonder what was given or promised to make the city to remove all the city staff so the Chamber could get the reported $30,000 + a year of tax money. 

The civic center is most definitely a bad joke. I do feel bad for the Chambers because everyone knew that their Director could not handle running the civic center. I agree that the City needs to be running the tax payers investment. I don’t know what happened to cause the council to make this change but it was a BAD idea on their behalf. I do know that Amanda Wilson ran a clean, organized and happy environment, unlike what’s happening know. I am also disappointed in Wendell Null and John Johnson for their vote to keep the Chamber running our center and all our city events into the ground. I am also disappointed in Sheryl Lawson for sitting out and using the excuse she did not have enough information. We all know the City gives all Council members their council info at least a week before.

 I now understand all complaints about Dayton community center, What a shame   

 I am so fed up with the chambers running the Civic Center , when the Civic Center was sold to the community to be built this is not what we were told. That office is so in adequate, un-organized and I am over the individuals running that office and the better than you attitude. 

 I have been a part of the Dayton senior center for almost 8 years , this has been the worst treatment of the seniors ever. We all blame the Dayton chambers, the mayor Mayor and Mayor pro tem for purposely trying to tear down the center. The Chamber ladies now I’ve taken over the staff parking so they can park their vehicles. I can’t believe the cities has allowed such horrible treatment to the employees to take place. Everyone at the Dayton senior center has asked me not to post this because they are afraid of the chamber ladies causing them problems. But I will no longer be attending this center, I will be going to Crosby instead, Where they listen to the people who actually use the center and you can tell they care about their job.

The City of Liberty Water was working on the corner of Atascosito Dr and River Oaks in Travis Park about 3-4 weeks ago and there has been a constant stream of water going into the drain for that long. I don't know about these things but do they forget where they've been working? Seems like a big waste of water.

Earlier I complained about vehicles being parked on the streets of Liberty and choking the passageways for people traveling. Someone wished me luck in getting anything done about it. Boy were they right. The biggest offender has now put a fifth vehicle out there on a regular basis!

If an aide behaves inappropriate with a student, you can expect serious consequences no matter who they may know. This administration is serious about such things and rumors saying they make exceptions are all baloney.

 the comment of the "fuel charge" is valid. It is a known fact power for Liberty comes from the co-op who gets the power delivered at a fixed number. this "fuel charge" is a hoax put on your bill. Liberty does not buy "fuel" to supply power. They don't make power, the co-op buys it delivered from other companies at a contract price. for years the city has used the electric revenues to "tax" it citizens without upping the property tax rate. Look at the budget and you will see the transfer from electric revenue funds to the general fund to use for whatever they want. Enough is enough. 

If the city of Liberty is fraudulently assessing a "fuel charge", can citizens file a lawsuit asking the courts to reimburse the years of bills we have paid? Would the lawsuit have to be here in Liberty? 

 Liberty - I think filing an online complaint with the state inspector general may get the ball rolling. Surely there are officials in Austin that can help us here in Liberty.

Why are their all the orange cones on highway 90 next to the Chinese restaurant and the auto parts place? The work that was done from the highway is done. I have seen so many near accidents their on my way to work and on my way back. How about moving the cones and the danger they cause unnecessarily.
