The Love Of MY Life…Marylee Orr

Oh well I guess I just caused her to blush…and in a way it is actually true…

Come to the Public Hearing
Vicksburg Convention Center
Thursday April 17 at 7:00 p.m.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARDLocated about 40 miles northwest of Jackson, MS and encompassing a sprawling 925,000 acres, the Yazoo Pumps project threatens the health and economy of the entire Mississippi Delta, including the habitat of the endangered Louisiana Black Bear – the original Teddy Bear.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Environmental Protection Agency is using its ‘veto authority’ to stop the project, and needs our support at the public hearing to complete the veto.

Vetoing the pumps will save 200,000 acres of wetlands, preserve the best hunting and fishing habitat in the Mississippi River Flyway, keep wildlife refuges healthy, and save taxpayers more than $220 million!

COME TO THE PUBLC HEARINGWhen: Thursday April 17 at 7 PM Central Time

Where: Vicksburg Convention Center
1600 Mulberry Street
Vicksburg, MS 39180

“Over the course of my 24 years at the EPA, I never reviewed a proposal that would do more damage to the environment than the Yazoo Pumps project in the Mississippi Delta.”– John Meagher, the retired director of the EPA’s Wetlands Division,
New York Times Letter to the Editor, Nov. 7, 2007
