Amended Order: On Saturday, Liberty County Judge Jay Knight amended his March 24th Stay Safe Emergency Executive Order. The County’s to administrator said this amendment clarifies the earlier order. One issue addressed in this executive order relates to religious services. In the original order religious and worship services could only be conducted off-site by video or teleconference. The new order also calls for only one person per family may enter an essential business, unless a parent has no alternative care available for their child, or someone requires assistance due to physical or medical needs. The Judge also added gun shops and gun dealers to the list of essential business Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton deemed essential. ************************************************

HJ Band Director: We reported over the weekend that the COVID-19 virus has claimed its first Southeast Texas victim and this time the killer is getting closer to home. Mike Westbrook-54, is band director at Hardin Jefferson High School in nearby Sour Lake. He died from conditions connected to covid 19 on Thursday. He actually lived in Lumberton but for 13 years had been band director at Hardin Jefferson High School in Sour Lake.  We understand he was also choir director at Hardin Jefferson but best known as their band director. The last time Mr. Westbrook was on the high school campus was thought to be only a few days ago, March 20th. The school district in Sour Lake is just across the Liberty County line in Jefferson County. The popular band director is known to have underlying health issues. Hardin Jefferson school officials are asking anyone recently in close contact with Mike Westbrook to take necessary precautions for the safety of themselves and their families.
