Sparta group hears Arkansas report

“We began education programs and spoke to every group who would listen to us,” Martin-Rudder said. “We also began the Arkansas-Louisiana bi-state Sparta Coalition to look at ways to save the Sparta.”
In 1998, the U.S. Geological Survey got involved and began providing hard data on the Sparta, Martin-Rudder said.
“They (USGS) told us we needed to cut pumpage from the Sparta by 72 percent in less than 10 years,” Martin-Rudder said. “That opened a lot of people’s eyes to the problem.”

Dare to believe in a dream

“ ... And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

Deadlock needs public input

With no apparent compromise in sight, Levy left the position in the hands of Allen for another month and called for another election to be placed on the jury’s February agenda.
The district attorney made a wise decision to postpone the election to the February meeting. The public’s input is needed to influence the final decision on who serves as president for 2007.
In the coming weeks we encourage readers to contact their juror and enter the dialogue on this important position.

Levy admonishes jury to do its job

The vice president selection did go smoothly. It took just one ballot to elect juror David Hammons to the second-in-command spot. But the presidential election was an entirely different story.
The first ballot saw two nominees — incumbent Eddie Allen and juror Jody Backus. Following a motion to cease the nomination, the 12-member jury cast its votes. The result, a 6-6 deadlock.
