Justices set aside
funds for 4-H

At the Lawrence County Quorum Court meeting on Monday, Bryce Baldridge, 4-H extension agent, proposed that 20 percent of fine money collected for Arkansas Game and Fish Commission violations be used for the 4-H shooting program.

The justices were concerned that the money, which currently goes towards Lawrence County schools, is necessary for school programs. After deliberation, Justice Jim Jones suggested that the court come up with the money by another means. The court voted to appropriate $2,000 to the shooting program.

The program currently has 18 enrolled and five regularly attending, three from Imboden and two from Walnut Ridge. Baldridge said that they are expecting that number to grow next year.

"We are hoping by next year that we'll have a new shooting range," he said.

Judge Dale Freeman said that a $50,000 grant has been received and will go towards the cost of the new shooting range.

The court also passed a resolution of opposition to the January 2013 designation and recognition of the White River and its watershed as the second National Blueway due to concerns about regulations on private property.

The court scheduled a meeting for Monday at 6 p.m. to review the budget and to discuss some district and circuit court needs.

Also at the meeting:

  • Bill Maxwell was reappointed to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital board.

  • Ethel Tompkins and Karen Williams were appointed to the Black River Area Development board.

  • Judge Freeman announced that AT&T upgrade costs for the 911 Communication Center are reported to be $70,000. The justices postponed a decision until they gather more information about the upgrade requirements.
