MMin row appeal
HUNTSVILLE (AP) Condemned killer Michael Lei Lockhart, who faces execution ii Texas and two other states and wl once claimed to have murdered as many as 27 people, has lost his cas before a federal appeals court.
The decision Thursday by the 5tl U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ii New Orleans also lined a reprieve Lockhart won from the same court last September.
That action, which had been opposed by the Texas attorney general’s office, halted Lockhart’s scheduled lethal injection for killing a Beaumont police officer in 1988.
The New Orleans court rejected three claims from Lockhart, including arguments he was denied a fair trial because he was ordered shackled and handcuffed during his trial. The restraints were ordered after Lockhart tried to escape the j courthouse by diving through a third-floor closed window. He earlier had shouted obscenities in court and threatened deputies.
“The Supreme Court has expressly held that the use of such visible restraints is appropriate under certain I circumstances,’* the appeals court wrote.
Drilling slip could bpcomp Dallas County's first wall
DALLAS (AP) — Evoking memories of Southfork Ranch, a wildcat drilling rig is rising just northwest of the Dallas skyline.
Contrary to what out-of-state viewers of the longrunning primetime soap may think, oil and gas wells aren't fixtures of Dallas County. But wildcat oilman Sanford Dvonn’s venture in the suburb of Coppell could be the county’s first commercially productive find.
“My husband and I were driving by and he said, ’What’s that? Is that an oil Well?"’ said a resident. Ann McDonald “We couldn’t believe it; you can see it from the road."
The $1.7 million project rising 115 feet above half-million-dollar homes and a planned shopping mall is the brainchild of Dvorin, a New Jersey _ native who says he has almost 30 years of experience putting together drilling deals for himself and others
“I think these will be very prolific wells," said Lance Weissman, president of Foundation Drilling and Exploration Inc. of Richardson, which is providing financial backing

Ms. Gonzalez was one of five finalists for the position announced last month. She has served as the school system's acting superintendent since the August resignation of (had Woolery.
The appointment came on a 6-0 vote and was announced by board president Bill Kccvcr shortly alter noon.
Mott threaten strike agilnit American
FORT WORTH (AP) — American Airlines pilots say they won’t hesitate to strike if the airline doesn’t agree to several concessions not included in a deal the pilots’ union overwhelmingly rejected this week.
A day after the Allied Pilots Association, which represents some 9,300 American pilots, said members had rejected a proposed contract, union board members gathered Thursday in Fort Worth to decide their next step.
Union spokesman Wally Pins said the 18-member board hoped to finish a final draft of demands by Friday.
“This is really it," Pins said. “The pilots have spoken and overwhelmingly have said that we want several changes or we will strike."
The union's five-member negotiating committee, which worked out the deal pilots rejected, resigned on Thursday, and a new committee was nominated

Police allow studontm to march in Dalgrada
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) Afirr a standoff that lasted into the early morning, police backed down and let tens of thousands of students march through Belgrade in an all-night demonstration against President Slobodan Milosevic.
The students dispersed in the morning, but said they would be back — and demanded that the government pull the riot police off the streets.
The students left a letter with their demands at the office of Premier Mirko Marjanovic today as they ended their march. They asked for a meeting, but were told to leave the letter instead.
Earlier this week, a delegation of students met with Serbia’s interior minister to demand the removal of police, but had no success.
“We wanted to see if Premier Marjanovic was ready to do what one of his ministers refused," Ccdomir Jovanovic, a student leader, said today.
The students said they would demonstrate again on Saturday.
Students and opposition followers have demonstrated for 53 straight days to protest Milosevic’s annulment of Nov. 17 local elections won by the opposition.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel put more soldiers on the streets across Israel today after two bomb blasts in Tel Aviv wounded 13 Israelis and threw a new kink into the labored peace talks with the Palestinians.
In Jerusalem. 3,000 troop reinforcements were stationed in the Old City as police expected thousands of Muslim worshipers for prayers today, the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“We realize that there could be some sort of activity," Internal Security Minister Avigdor kahalam said.
Overnight, police arrested two more Arabs and then released them and a third person arrested after the bombing Kahalam said police have not identified thotR<u;4irectly responsible for the bondings late Thursday in a poor Tel Aviv neighborhood
Some, including Palestinian officials, accused the militant Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, but no group has claimed responsibility.
