Why are couples not get-
ting married or not staying
married? For the past few
decades, there has been a
decline ini the number of
married households and
now, according to an analy-
sis done by The New York
Time, only 49.7 percent of
American households in
2005 were made of married
couples, with and without
children. Five years earlier,
52 percent of the nation's
households were married.
The state with the largest
number of married couples
is Utah, where 61.5 percent
of the population is married.
Washington, D. C. has the
smallest number of married
households where only 21.8
percent are married.
The state of Florida is
number 43 on the list with
47.9 percent married cou-
ples and Georgia is number
35, with 49.5 percent of the
population being married.
Of the 51 states, the two
with the lowest percentage
of married couples has a
dramatic difference. New
York is number 50 in the U.
S. with 44.9 percent mar-
ried couples and
Washington, D. C. has the
fewest percentage of mar-
ried couples where only
21.8 percent are married.
Louisiana has the next
fewest number of married
couples with 45.9 percent
Following Utah with
the most married couples is
Idaho with 56.3 percent,
New Hampshire with 54.3
percent and Hawaii with
53.4 percent. According to
the report, while the num-
ber of single young adults
and elderly widows are
both growing, many cou-
ples decide to live together
for many reasons but say
that the social and econom-
ic implications are pro-
Policemen Indicted Pleas Guilty
in Shooting Death of 92-Year-Old
It was November 21, 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia, when three officers, utilizing the "no-
knock" law, entered the home of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnston claiming that an informant
had described purchasing drugs from a dealer at the home. When the officers entered the
lady's house without warning, she fired at them, only once, through her door, but did not
hit either of them. The officers fired 39 shots, striking Ms. Johnston five or six times,
which included a fatal wound to her chest. Officer Smith, 35, said he is sorry, and plead-
ed guilty. Former Officer Junnier, 40 also pleaded guilty, both to the charges of manslaugh-
ter, violation of oath, criminal solicitation, making false statements and perjury.
Democrats Hold Debate
At South Carolina HBCU
Eight Democratic candidates -
kicked off what will be the
longest presidential campaign in
history Thursday night.
The first debate of the 2008
campaign' was held at South
Carolina State University in
The debate coincided with the
Senate joining the House in voting to
require the start of troop withdrawals by
Oct. 1, setting the tone for what is certain
to be a polarized campaign.
"The Congress has spoken, and now all
we can do is hope that the president will lis-
ten," said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of
All of the candidates were posturing in
an effort to differentiate themselves from the
others without appearing too radical.
There were no surprises. Those with the

Eleven Year Old
Was First of a Grouo of Children Killed"
Two of Three Convicted in Murder
of Eleven Year Old Honor Student
December 2005 was the beginning of an eight month period
when four children were killed in Jacksonville. They were all
children with good school records and exemplary behavior.
Damien Hughes, 11, 4 fourth grade honor student, just wanted
to go with his sister, when she made a decision to sneak out of
the house to pick up one of her friends. It was just a few days
before Christmas, (December 19, 2005) so why not?
Headed home, they stopped behind a car at a stop sign at 26th
and Fairfax when another vehicle slammed into the back of
their car and three masked gunmen came to them and ordered
them to get out the car. When she was too slow, one of the
masked men began to shoot, according to her testimony. The
Raines High School teenager said in her effort to get away,
she .crashed into a ditch where she and her brother got out of
the vehicle. She said
that she tried to get.. .
him to come with her
Damien Hughes, age 11,
but he was crying and -"
holding his chest, and e
made her realize that
he was unable to go so
she ran for help.
When she returned
with help, her little d r ,
brother was dead.
The t Kesario 'Ric' Johnson Raymond Lakes Frank Cam
The first of three
trials on this attempted carjacking-murder case started with Kesario Leonard Johnson, 21.
Johnson confessed to the attempted carjacking about a month after it happened. His attor-
ney said that Johnson made the confession because he was told he may be able to not be a:
part of the murder case. However, he was the first to go to trial for first-degree murder,
attempted armed robbery, shooting a deadly missile and the attempted murder of Kenitra`
Bright, Damian's 16-year-old sister. Jurors deliberated for about five hours and returned
with a conviction of first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, attempted second-
degree murder and shooting deadly missiles. Johnson is facing a mandatory life prison
The second trial began on Tuesday for Frank Cam, 21, also for the same charges.
He is the second of three men to stand trial for Damian's death and is said to-have been the
driver of the car they used in the attempted carjacking. On Wednesday, a jury found Frank
Carn guilty of first-degree murder.
The third person to go on trial for the death of Damien Hughes is Raymond Lakes,
22, who is accused of being the primary shooter in this case. Lakes' trial is scheduled for
May 29, 2007. Kesario Johnson and Frank Cam will both appear in court again on May 2;i
2007 and are facing a possible life sentence.

New Way To Track Kidnappers and Sex Offenders
The system is called LexisNexis and it is designed to provide a quick and more accu-
rate method to track down sex offenders. If a child is in a certain zip code, the system
allows a very quick method to identify all offenders in the immediate area since time is
very critical in locating these children.

Cause of Death: Bureaucratic Failure
Marian Wright Edelman
President, Children's Defense Fund
For too many of the nine
million uninsured children'in
America, the lack of health
coverage can literally mean
the difference between life
Children are dying
because their health coverage
under Medicaid or the State
Children's Health Insurance
Program (SCHIP) ran' out,
was not renewed in a timely
manner or simply does not
cover the services a child
needs. Some of these deaths
occurred because attempts to
gain access to health care are
ensnarled in red tape. The
impact of this oppressive
bureaucracy on children is
tragically illustrated by the
death of Devante Johnson of
Tamika Scott, Devante's
mother, didn't plan to rely on
government supported health
insurance to protect her chil-
dren. At 29, she managed
raising three boys while pur-
suing a career, buying a house
and completing a college
degree. Then her doctors told
her she had Multiple
Sclerosis and strongly urged
her to leave her job for health
reasons. She and her sons lost
their private health insurance
and she had to cash in stocks
and use money from her
401(k) retirement fund to pay
bills. Fifteen months later, the
family sank even deeper into
financial difficulty when her
oldest son, 10-year-old
Devante, was diagnosed with
Wilms tumor, an advanced
kidney cancer. Because of the
family's reduced income, the
six months of chemotherapy
Devante received were cov-
ered by Medicaid. At the end
of the treatments, the doctors
pronounced him cured. But
six months later the cancer
returned. Devante and.his
mother were told that a new
three-year course of
chemotherapy, radiation and
constant monitoring were
critical to Devante's recovery.
Undeterred by this rever-
sal, Devante proceeded with
the new treatment with high
hopes and the unwavering
support of his mother. Two
months before the expiration
of the Medicaid coverage that
was essential to the health-
restoring care Devante need-
ed, Tamika submitted an
application for renewal to the
Texas Department of Human
Services. She was confident
that there was more than suf-
ficient time for the applica-
tion to be processed to allow
her child's health care to con-
tinue seamlessly. One month
before the cutoff date, she
became concerned when she
hadn't received notice that the
application had been
approved. There was still
time, she thought; Tamika

lowed up with dozens of
phone calls and faxed infor-

A month passed, then two.

occasions as to the status of

didn't give up. He never com-

his mother. He remained an
honor roll student who took
advanced classes and looked
after his younger brothers.
In desperation, Tamika
Scott appealed to her state
representative. Through his
intervention, Devante's health
coverage was restored in one
day. He was transferred to the
University of Texas M.D.
Anderson Cancer Center
where he received first rate,
comprehensive care. All too
late. This courageous 14-
year-old died on March 1,
2007. The cause of death was
complications from advanced
cancer. But perhaps other
causes were the obstacles and

We must not let Devante's
death be in vain. We need a
national solution to the urgent
child health problem. The
Children's Defense' Fund
endorses the All Healthy
Children Act (H.R. 1688),
introduced by Congressman
Bobby Scott (D-VA). The
measure would consolidate
Medicaid and SCHIP into
one fully funded single pro-
gram with guaranteed, com-
prehensive health and mental
health benefits for all chil-
dren and pregnant women
with family incomes at or
below 300 percent of the fed-
eral poverty level ($61,950
for a family of four in 2007).
Under this measure, 5-6 mil-
lion children currently eligi-
ble for Medicaid and SCHIP
won't fall through bureaucrat-
ic cracks. Enrolling unin-
sured children in health care
programs,and keeping them
covered,would be stream-
lined with an automatic
enrollment process and other
Extending health cover-
age to every child in America
can be achieved in 2007. We
must stand against those who
say we can't afford to cover
all children this year. We
must also stand against those
who seek to phase in health
coverage for all children over
many years. To help, go to

Sonny's Gets Healthy;
It was just a matter of time. Sonny's Franchise Company
announces that all Sonny's Bar-B-Q restaurants will convert
their cooking process to a Zero Trans Fat Cooking Oil.
According to reports from the American Heart Association
and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Trans Fats
cause many health related issues including high cholesterol
and hardened arteries. In response to these reports, the FDA
recommends that consumers keep consumption of Trans
Fats at a minimum. Sonny's has chosen the healthier alter-
native of Soy bean oil. Jeff Yarmuth, President and Chief
Operating Officer of Sonny's Franchise Company, explains,
"The health of our guests is important to us.
We have eliminated the unhealthy Trans Fats from our
food while continuing to provide the same great tasting
'Feel Good' Bar-B-Q".
Sonny's didn't change the cooking process for everything
on the menu. The garlic bread, a guest favorite, was already
Trans Fat Free.
Floyd "Sonny" Tillman founded Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-
Q in 1968 in Gainesville, Florida. Today, Sonny's has more
than 145 restaurants in nine southeastern states.

Blues Lose an Angel
Last Fatality Was in 1999 in Georgia -
Jacksonville NAS Was 1st Home to Angels -
Lt Cmdr. Kevin Davis lost his life doing what he loved to
do. He was a Blue Angel.
Lt. Cmdr. Kevin J. Davis' flag-draped casket was return
to NAS Pensacola this past Wednesday, at approximately
2:30 p.m. aboard "Fat Albert,"
The Blue Angels' C-130 transport aircraft. Members of
the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron will be on hand to
render full military honors.
Davis, 32, the No. 6
Blues pilot, was killed
Saturday when his F/A-18
Hornet clipped the top of a
pine tree and crashed during
an air show in Beaufort, S.C.
"The spirit of the pilot is
in the arms of a loving God,"
said Rob Reider, a minister ,
who was the announcer for .
the air show. .
The crash happened as
the team was performing its
final maneuver Saturday
afternoon during the air
show. The team's six pilots \
were joining from behind the
crowd of thousands to form a triangle shape known as a
delta, but Davis' jet did not join the formation.
Moments later, his jet crashed just outside Marine Corps
Air Station Beaufort, with debris hitting homes in a neigh-
borhood about 35 miles northwest
of Hilton Head Island, S.C. Eight
people on the ground were injured,
and some homes were damaged.
Davis, a decorated pilot who
joined the Blue Angels in 2005, had
.previously served as an announcer
for the air shows, Reider said. He
also handled celebrity flights, and
flew with stars such as Kelly
Clarkson, actor James Franco and
University of Oklahoma football
coach Bob Stoops.
His parents were in the crowd The squadron's Trans

was in 1999, when a pilot and crew-
mate died while practicing for air shows with the five other
Blue Angels jets at a base in Georgia. Saturday's crash was
the 26th fatality in the team's 60-year history.
The Blue Angels are unique from other jet aviators
because they don't wear the traditional G-suits that most jet
pilots use to avoid blacking out during maneuvers that exert,
strong gravitational forces. The suits inflate around the
lower body to keep blood in the brain, but that could cause a
pilot to bump the control stick a potentially deadly move
when flying inches from other planes.
After the deadly 1999 crash in Georgia, the Navy's air
training chief ordered the Blue Angels to insider wearing
G-suits. An investigation determined that the most likely
cause of that crash was that the pilot was momentarily
impaired because of a prior rib injury. Pain from the rib
injury might have kept the pilot from tensing his abdominal
muscles during a turning causing him to suffer tunnel vision.
The Blue Angels have a close tie to Jacksonville and the
Southeast. At the end of World War II, Adm. Chester W.
Nimitz, the Chief of Naval Operations, ordered the forma-
tion of a flight demonstration
team to keep the public
interested in Naval Aviation.
The Blue Angels performed
their first flight demonstra-
tion less than a year later in
June 1946 at their home

S Cmdr. Roy "Butch" Voris.
Voris selected two fellow
instructors to join him Lt.
Maurice "Wick" Wickendoll
and Lt. Mel Cassidy, both
veterans of the War in the
Pacific, and the three spent
countless hours developing the show. The group perfected
its initial maneuvers in secret over the Florida Everglades so
that, in Voris' words, ".. .if anything happened, just the alli-
gators would know." The team's first demonstration before
Navy officials took place on May
10, 1946 and was met with enthusi-
On June 15 Voris led a trio of
Grumman F6F-5 Hellcats, specially
modified to reduce weight and
painted sea blue with gold leaf trim,
through their inaugural 15-minute-
long performance at their home
base at Naval Air Station
Jacksonville (NAS Jax), Florida.
The group, known simply as the
"Navy Flight Exhibition Team,"
ort C-130 hercules thrilled spectators with low-flying
known as Fat Albert, maneuvers performed in tight for-
is aircraft perma- nations, and (according to Voris) by
port a Navy "...keeping something in front of the
crowds at all times. My objective
was to beat the Army Air Corps. If
we did that, we'd get all the other side issues. I felt that if we
weren't the best, it would be my naval career."
The "Blues" continued to perform nationwide includ-
ing one year, 1949, in a blinding all-yellow scheme with blue
markings. At the start of the Korean War in 1950, due to
.a shortage of pilots the team was disbanded and its mem-
bers were ordered to combat duty.
The Blue Angels were officially recommissioned on
October 25, 1951, and reported to NAS Corpus Christi,
Texas. Lt. Cdr. Voris was again tasked with acisembliing the
team he was the first of only two commanding officers to
lead them twice.

Candidates & Opinions
One of the things that made the first Earth Day stand out
was that it cut across political lines. On that April day in
1970, Republicans and Democrats alike spoke out on the
importance of confronting major environmental problems
head on without political bias.
In today's political environment that bipartisanship may
seem foreign or as a minimum, an outmoded relic of the

While environmentalists issues of the past were confined
to the Democratic left and the environmental movement, cli-
mate change has entered the mainstream of American poli-
This change is evidenced by greater extremes in weather

melting polar ice caps, retreating glaciers, and the threat of
Even President Bush who spent the first six years of his
administration down-playing global warming, acknowl-
edged the threat in his 2007 State-of-the-Union address.
On this Earth Day political candidates and environmen-
talists alike are painting a picture much worse than envi-
sioned less than a decade earlier.
Many believe that global warming and climate change is
the biggest environmental threat humanity will face in the
21st century. Caused by an overabundance of the heat-trap-
ping gas, carbon dioxide, in the earth's atmosphere, global
warming has caused changes in climate worldwide as well
as disruptions and dislocations in habitats and wildlife..
The concern is not just America. French President
Jacques Chirac has stated "Our*house is burning down and
we are blind to it. The earth and humankind are in danger
and we are all responsible. It is time to open our eyes.
Alarms are sounding across all continents. We cannot say
we did not know! Climate warming is still reversible."
Black Votes at
With most black voters focusing on the campaigns of
Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama for the
Democratic presidential nomination, former U.S. senator
and vice presidential nominee John Edwards is making a
strong push to attract support from African Americans.
Edwards' populist message as a fighter against poverty
and inequality resonates with millions of low-income
African Americans. On his campaign Web site he features
blog entries on the crisis in Darfur, AIDS in Uganda, and the
continuing plight of the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Recently, Edwards took his campaign to Benedict
College, the historically black educational institution in
Columbia, South Carolina. There he called for increased aid
to education in African nations. Edwards said the United
States must be "committed to the long-term interest of
humanity" regardless of whether it doesn't "seem to be in
our short-term interest." Edwards also touched on the issue
of the Sudan and AIDS in Africa during his Benedict
What apparently pleased the crowd most was his call for
the federal government to make a college education more
affordable and to ensure that students do not leave school
with "crushing debt for years and years and years."
Edwards' poll numbers have increased since it was
announced that his wife is once again undergoing treatment

McDonald leaves a legacy of 'firsts'. She was the first
African-American woman to serve on the Carson City

she faced her illness was an indication of the determination
with which she always served the people of her district.'

Is Coming -
To the class of 2007:
Seniors, the- time is
winding down across the
state for your anticipated
graduation ceremonies in
the spring. Your family's
hopes and dreams are
building with great prom-
ise for this anticipated
commencement in cele-
bration of your great
accumulation of not just
four years of high school
education, but also the
amassing of 12 years of
education designed to
prepare you for the work-
ing world or higher edu-
Many parents had per-
sonal questions when you
entered into kindergarten;
have I, as a parent, pre-
pared my child for public
education, are the teach-
ers qualified, how will my
child interact with other
children, will their
instructional needs be
administered to? During
your elementary years a
foundation was being
laid, just like the founda-
tion of a house. A strong
house that will last for
years has a strong founda-
tion. As Master
Thornton of "Skies the
Limit Contractors" stated,
"a home is built on a
Footer that is made from
concrete and rebar". Your
foundation is built on the
C.O.R.E. academic areas
of Reading, Writing,
Arithmetic, and Language
Arts. These are based on
State Standards that are
the guidelines of class-
room instruction. Without
this foundation you may
have faced deficiencies in
frustration, and this may
have lead to potential dis-
Thomas-El (I Choose to
Stay) wrote about his
experiences as an educa-
tor with over two decades
in education as a teacher
and administrator. He
attributed his success
with children stating, "I
think the key is that most
of the time I've never
given up," he stated. "I
have high expectations
for everyone. Every child,
if we believe in them
enough even when they
don't believe in them-
selves, eventually they
realize. they can be suc-
success". Parents should
understand that despite
our children's challenges
whether they are academ-
ic, behavioral or social,
we must never give up on
children and consistently
encourage success, pro-
mote a constant thirst for
learning. Thomas-El sup-
ports the firm belief that,
"children learn more from
watching us than from lis-
tening to us. Eighty-five
percent of communica-
tion is nonverbal". This
being said we as parents
model for our children.
The adage, "Do as I say
and not as I do", does not
work and is contradictory
to educating our children
the right way. If we drink,
statistically our children
will drink, if we smoke,
they will smoke, but if we
read, they will read, if we
watch the news and read
the newspaper, they will
do so as well. We have to
be consistent in our posi-
tive actions and include
our children with us in
these positive activities.
behavior must be com-
mon practice not just for
show. Children will see
past the facade of "good
behavior" and further
damage will be done by a
loss of trust and respect.
August 2006 was the
time high school seniors
should be serious; in
preparation and prayer for
various assessments that
determine their future;
They will be administered
various graduation tests at
their high schools, ACT
(American College Test),
and SAT (Scholastic
Aptitude Test). These
along with a good GPA
are precursors to entry
into college, trade school
or vocational school, the
military has their own
Exam. Statistics (U.S.
Census Bureau 2002)
states that, "those with
higher degrees make up
to 60 percent more than
those without". The other
alternative is a grim pic-
ture painted by findings
from Harvard University
and the U.S. Census
Bureau. There are esti-
mates that 5 million black
men are in the United
States between the ages of
20 and 39. These men are
faced by a variety `bf
social challenges that aim
to deprive them of educa-
tion, employment and a
happy life that non-
minorities take for grant-
ed. Among many finding
(U.S. Census 2002):
About 16 percent of black
men in their twenties whio
were not college students
were either in jail or in
prison. Almost 60 percent
of black male high school
dropouts in their early
thirties have spent time in
prison. In 2000, about 65
percent of black male
high-school dropouts had
no jobs, either because
they couldn't find wor!or
because they were in jail.
These are the realities that
must be addressed by our
parents, supporting our
youth is imperative to
their success. We cannot
consistently rely on com-
who are in political
offices with glass ceil-
ings. Ask our seniors (eld-
erly) when a representa-
tive (political) personally
asked them their opinion
about education, crime,
health insurance and
unemployment when it
was not an election year.

the correct road to excel-
lence, not the road to

Parents need tools to keep

Education enables our
young people to come to
the table and compete, not
just show up to grasp the
remaining crumbs of min-
imum wage or welfare.
Despite the dire circum-
stances presented by the
media there is still hope.
As Harry Holzer, a pro-
fessor of public policy at
states, "solutions will be
rooted in education and
employment. I think we
need to emphasize three
broad approaches: a range
of education, training and
youth development, espe-
cially in middle school
and high school, to pre-
vent boys from discon-
necting and to prepare
them for the labor mar-
ket." Holzer further
explains, "The girls are
graduating more, but it's
almost as if these young
boys look down the road
and sense a bleak future
and they disconnect early
a self-fulfilling prophe-
cy." So I ask, the Seniors
of 2007, what !is your
mental state and what
direction are you working
towards? This does not

How does this help you,

have something to bring

GOD Goes Shopping
by Ester Da\ is
I am still constantly amazed at the many \\ays :,;;
God's blesses: the "\\hat's-best-foi-you" things, the
big things, the impossible things, the seen things. .
the unseen things. the clear choices. But ii is the lit- Y t:
tie things \\ith purpose, diversity and sensibility .
that are etchlled in the corners of \-ourr heart. gi\ ing .-
lyrics to your song.
Take shopping. I don't discriminate when it comes to shopping. Ijust like to
shop. I shop anywhere. No real allegiance to any fashion designer. No special store.
No certain label. New, resale, garage, Salvation Army, Thriftown. What I like, I
like, irregardless of what the magazines or fashion week say is in vogue. Like most
of America, I am not hot'on shopping malls. They have had a long honeymoon peri-
od and we are now looking for greener pastures. After visiting Korea, and being
able to shop all night with the rest of the world, malls close too early in America.
Texans tell newcomers, if you don't like the weather in Texas, you haven't been
here long enough. Texas has this crazy weather pattern. We have no season where
the weather does as expected. We have all kinds of weather in all seasons some-
times in just one day we will experience winter, spring, summer and fall. Very sim-
ply, if you do not listen to the weather the night before, you will regret it the next
day. Which is what happened to me recently. The weather was forecasted for 30
degrees at 7 a.m., 70 degrees by noon and back to 45 degrees by the 10 p.m. news.
Well, by 11 a.m. it was hot and time to shed the 100 percent wool, even with the air
conditioner on. So the closest thought was to visit a quaint little vintage shop con-
veniently located since I had about an hour or so before my next people meeting.
Clotheshorse or mule, stylist or stubborn, stuffy or suave, everyone with a clos-
et is aware of what is in it. So, when shopping you automatically go through the
process of elimination, association and harmony. Meaning, too much black, my
'"fat" clothes, Sunday-go-to-meeting, etc. And ideally, according to the experts, this
is the way you organize your closet. Your clothes are your signature. You make a
statement with every appearance.
Once in the store, browsing and all, I surmise this is not my day. I am not find-
ing anything I cannot live without, no "wowville," no awesomenesss," no "this-is-
sooo-cute" in sight. In most stores, on your way to the dressing room there is a rack
of clothes to be placed back. Scanning through this now full rack, I see and pass
over this little black sheer sleeveless top. "Too much black in your closet, forget it,"
uttered to myself. The second time passing this rack, a heaping helping of the
clothes are gone and "sheer sleeveless" is now more prominently displayed. My
thoughts are the same.
Third pass and now running out of time, little black sheer sleeveless is hanging
all alone. I envision growing possibilities: I can wear it in or out, it's washable with
a lined ribbed neckline making it easy to pull over my head, capped sleeves. I love
the spirit of the fabric. Perfect for my 9-inch pearls. It can go under a wool suit, silk
suit or alone without a jacket. Dressing down, it would compliment a pair of black
blue jeans with heels or shorts and sandals. And right now, it's sold. "I won't need
a bag, I'm going to wear it," I said to the saleslady. Sure its black, but I can wear it
Dressing with a purpose is a lot like living with a purpose. Just like the rest of
us mere mortals,, I don't know what the will of God is, but I sure do thank him for
the little things.

Mayor of Jacksonville
This May marks the one-year anniversary of Seeds
of Change: Growing Great Neighborhoods, a city ini-
tiative that encourages collaboration between residents,
neighborhood associations, businesses and community
leaders. Seeds of Change is making neighborhoods
across Jacksonville more safe and livable by focusing
on beautification and infrastructure, increased home- .
owner investment and public safety including reach- a-"'"
ing out to young people.
In the inaugural year of Seeds of Change, we launched a number of successful youth
initiatives, including a summer jobs program. This summer, the City of Jacksonville
will again offer the "Mayor's Seeds of Change Summer Jobs Program," a student
employment and training program that matches students with jobs.
The city will hire 200 students for a five-week work program. Additionally, we are
calling on the business community to create 300 more positions for students. I encour-
age private businesses to consider partnering with us to create a student summer job pro-
gram. It is an excellent way to keep young people engaged while school is out, teach
them new skills, lay the foundation to steer them away from crime and provide viable
alternatives for the future and it helps fill a need in the business community.
We have made the process simple. The city has partnered with WorkSource to match
students, ages 16 to 21, to a business' specific needs during summer months. Just go to
www.worksourcefl.com to find a pool of eager students who have applications on file.
Local businesses, neighborhood organizations, government and individuals are all
playing a role in changing our city for the better through their work on the Seeds of
Change initiative. By working together, I know we will make Jacksonville the best and
safest city in America.
Anyone interested in applying for a city or private business position may do so by
attending the "Mayor's Seeds of Change Summer Jobs Program" Hiring Fair from 8 to
11 a.m. on May 30 at Jacksonville University's Kinne Center. Students unable to attend
the fair or private businesses interested in hiring students for a summer job program may
visit the WorkSource Web site at www.worksourcefl.com or contact Tameka Bridges at
798-9229, extension 2206 or tbridges@worksource.
FLORIDA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION AND DEPARTMENT OF CHIL-
DREN AND FAMILIES ANNOUNCE AUTOMATIC LIFELINE ENROLL-
MENT Joint effort will help low-income Floridians maintain essential telephone
TALLAHASSEE Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar and Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Secretary Bob
Butterworth today joined Representative Juan Zapata, and other state leaders to
announce the launch of automatic Lifeline enrollment. The PSC and DCF developed
the process to better serve the number of low-income Floridians who can receive a
monthly credit on their telephone bills.
"The Florida Public Service Commission is committed to increasing participation
in the Lifeline program," said Chairman Edgar. "The new automatic process will
enable more eligible consumers in Florida to receive assistance with their telephone
Under the federal Lifeline program, telephone consumers who participate in certain
public assistance programs are entitled to receive a basic telephone service discount
of at least $13.50 per month or more than $160 per year from the federal Universal
Service Fund. Currently, only about 12% of Florida households that are eligible to
receive this federally funded discount are receiving it.
Launched April 4, 2007, the new enrollment process encourages DCF customers
applying online for other public assistance programs to sign up for Lifeline assistance.
The applicant is required to respond during the DCF application process as to whether
he or she is interested in receiving the Lifeline discount. Certified DCF applications
will be forwarded to the PSC on a weekly basis for processing with the customer's
"This partnership between the Department of Children and Families and the Florida
Public Service Commission makes perfect sense," said Secretary Butterworth. "Many
of the people who apply for benefits through the Department struggle to make ends
meet; even put food on the table. You can imagine the difficulty of paying a month-
ly phone bill. The Lifeline program will provide low-income consumers with afford-
telephone service and we're proud to be part of it."
Eligibility through the automatic enrollment procedure is determined by participa-
tion in one of the following programs:
Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA)
Consumers may also apply for Lifeline assistance through their phone companies
by faxing or mailing an application available on the PSC website. Last October, the
PSC launched an automated online application on its website. This process allows
consumers to enter their information and submit an application online, eliminating the
need to print, fill out, and mail or fax a request for the benefit to their telephone com-
The PSC is committed to making sure that Florida's consumers receive electric, nat-
ural gas, telephone, water and wastewater in a safe, affordable and reliable manner.
The PSC exercises regulatory authority over utilities in the three key areas of rate
base/economic regulation, competitive market oversight and monitoring of safety,
reliability and service.

2007 FCAT Writing Scores Improve in Duval County Elementary
and Middle Schools High school writing scores remained the same.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 23, 2007 --The Florida Department of Education
announced today the results of the 2007 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT)
Writing+ exams taken by students throughout the state. Duval County's results, which
include the test performances of students in grades 4, 8 and 10, reflect an increase in the
percent of elementary and middle school students who scored 3.5 (on a scale of one to six)
or higher on the essay portion of the test administered in February. Duval County high
school students maintained the same score as the one in 2006.
The FCAT Writing+ results for students in grades 4, 8 and 10 include the traditional
essay scores and the newer Writing+ scale scores. An essay score of 3.5 is the standard
score used in assigning accountability grades of schools, announced each summer by the
Florida Department of Education.
Dr. Wise is at best ambivalent about the FCAT writing results delivered to Duval County
Public Schools this morning. "Although I am incredibly proud of a number of our schools
at which our students exceeded state-wide expectations, I am deeply concerned that not all
schools evidenced the growth we have targeted-and expect. I am looking forward to going
over all th6 data-and discussing the strategies that have been working and not working-with
teachers and principals," said Dr. Wise.
Below are the percentages and scores by grade levels -
4th Grade 73 percent of students scored 3.5 and above, an increase from 71 percent
last year and up from 24 percent scoring 3.5 and above in 1999. The average essay score
8th Grade 84 percent of students scored 3.5 and above, an increase from 82 percent
last year and up from 59 percent scoring 3.5 and above in 1999. The average essay score
increased from 3.9 in 2006 to 4.1.
10th Grade 79 percent of students scored 3.5 and above, which is the same score as
last year and up from 66 percent scoring 3.5 and above in 1999. The average essay score
remained the same as last year's at 3.9.
For the first time ever, FCAT Writing+ scores are being reported in terms of five achieve-
ment levels as adopted by the State Board of Education in January. The achievement lev-
els are based on the total FCAT writing score, which combines multiple-choice questions
and the essay.
4th Grade 52 percent of students scored at or above grade level (Level 3 and above)
on writing skills.
8th Grade 42 percent of students scored at or above grade level (Level 3 and above)
on writing skills.
10th Grade 48 percent of students scored at or above grade level (Level 3 and above)
on writing skills.
Parents may view their students' scores via the FCAT Parent Network www.fcatparent-
provided by their school.

Man With Two Guns
Arrested in Car at USF
The University of South Florida police arrested a 47-
year-old Palm Harbor man they say was found sleeping in a
school parking lot just before 4 a.m. with a 38 caliber hand-
gun next to him. Police also recovered a shotgun, several
different types of ammunition and a survival knife.
Cloal Lang Leatherman was charged with one count of
possessing a weapon on school property. Leatherman has no
affiliation with the school and it was unclear what he was
doing on campus, said USF Police spokeswoman Lt. Meg
"Preventing what happened at Virginia Tech is difficult,
but we are prepared to handle anything that comes along,"
Aside from the Rossi .38 caliber handgun found next to
him, Leatherman had a Snake Charmer .410 shotgun, eight
shells, other ammunition and a survival knife with him,
Ross said. Leatherman is being held at the Orient Road Jail
on $2,000 bond, according to jail records.

"It was a war," says journalist/author David
Halberstam, who covered those early sit-ins as a
fledgling reporter for The Tennessean and who later
made his reputation covering the warin Vietnam
for the New York Times. "Martin Luther King was
the general, and' these kids were the foot soldiers,
the slock troops who deliberately picked out
the most dangerous places to put their bodies on the
line. They were like the airborne brigades that
dropped in on D-Day."
"And the more I looked back at it, the more I
found out about the Freedom Rides, the more
respect I had for their extraordinary couri.ge." says
Halberstam, who had been sent abroad in the early
'60s bdt returned for a short time toward the end of
the period. "Mississippi in 1964 was scarier til.m
In 1960, Halberstam wrote, "They did not ihink,
of themselves in those days as being g i lid or talent-
ed or marked for success, or for that matter particu-
larly heroic, and yet from that little .r'roiup would
come a senior U.S. Congressman (GCori i.i' John
Lewis); the mayor of a major city (Marion Barry of
Washington, D.C.); the first black woman psychia-
trist to be tenured at Harvard medical school (Gloria
Johnson-Powell); one of the most distinguished
public health doctors in America (Dr. Rodney
Powell); and a young man who would eventually
come back to be the head of the same college in
Nashville he then attended (Bernard I.&l'.lcitt of
American Baptist College)."
"These young people wei not empowered,"
Halberstam said, "they were scarcely members of
the privileged class. In fact, most of them came
from dramatically underprivileged circumstances.
Yet somehow they found the faith to make this
country \\ horli of its promises in the face of con-
stant physical danger."
His time in Vietnam was marked by several
clashes with military brass but probably the most
telling story was when Halberstam once called a
general at home to get permission to fly to the site
of a recent U.S. military defeat. At a subsequent
briefing a brigadier (one star) general scolded "piti-
ful, lowly > ,ung reporters" for having the temerity
to call a general at home.
AccordinL to Pulitzer Prize-winner Neil
Sheehan, Halberstam's response was "General, you
do not understand. We are not corporals. We do not
\ ork for you. We will call a commanding general at
home any time it is needed to get our job done."
The AP bureau chief who was in Saigon when
the city fell said about Halberstam, "The bottom
line was that David was more honest with the
Am*\n icia public than their own government."
Speaking at a recent journalism conference he
noted that the increasing government criticism of
news reporters in Iraq reminded him of how he was
treated while covering the war in Vietnam. "The cru-
eler the war gets, the crueler the attacks get on any-
body who doesn't salute or play the game," he said.
"And one day, the people who are doing the attacking
look around, and they've used up their credibility."
Journalism has an empty spot that all writers and
those who consume their work will feel for a long

APRU L OZ, .A./
NFL Draft Day
I am surprised that there is still a debate as to who
will be the first draft pick Saturday. If JaMarcus
Russell's stellar performance in LSU's 41-14 spanking
of Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl wasn't enough to
convince Oakland's GM Tim Dean he might have the
first pick again next year.
Detroit needs a QB as well, but they need an offen-
sive line first. I look for them to go after either Joe
Thomas the big offensive tackle from Wisconsin.
Another possibility would be a trade-down that garners
an O-line player and small drop in draft order say
Arizona or Miami.
If Brady Quinn is still there he's a Brown. They are
hurting behind the center. If Brady is gone Joe Thomas
fills their other needs.
The Seminoles had six players go in the first round
last year actually they all went in the top 20! This year
will probably be a little different. Lawrence Timmons
OLB is probably a first-rounder but he will be lucky to
get in the top 20. Lorenzo Booker RB would be my 1st
round longshot along with Buster Davis MLB. Both are
big play guys and both are physically big enough for
the next level.
The Gators have a history of not producing great pro
players. There are exceptions, Emmit Smith of course,
our own Fred Taylor, Jack Youngblood and Wilbur
Marshall to name a few. They should do much better
this year (see feature article this page) in a draft that
could well be dominated by SEC players in the first
through third rounds.
The Suns come home for a six-game home stand
against the Montgomery Biscuits. The Suns are tied for
Second in the Southern Division with a 11-9 record. The
Biscuits are just a half game behind the Suns so a
sweep here would be just what the Suns would like. If
you haven't been to a game yet, get down to the
Baseball Grounds and enjoy a great evening supporting
the home team.

It's one week away, and it is Jacksonville's biggest
sporting event of the year without question. From the
opening day practice rounds on Monday to the final
round on Sunday its Mother Day as well it is
World Class Golf played on a World Class Course right
here in Jacksonville. If you have never been to a golf
tournament, do yourself a favor.
Look for VJ and Tiger to be in the top 5 when
Sunday's round starts. For years now we have watched
Tiger and come to believe that if he was within 3 or 4
strokes on Sunday he was the winner. The Masters was
different, what will TPC bring?
#1 Noles Take
2 of 3 From
Florida State held on to it's No 1 rank-
ing by taking 2 out of 3 from #4 North
Carolina this past week.
Top ranked Florida State got eight
strong innings from starter Bryan Henry
and a season-high three RBI's from Mark
Gildea to down second-ranked North
Carolina (32-8, 13-6) 4-2 Friday night in a
showdown of the ACC's top two teams.
The Seminoles recorded double-digit hits
for the 11th straight ball game, en route to
defeating the Tar Heels for the fifth con-
secutive time at home and for the 15th try
in 16 games played on Mike Martin Field.
On Saturday the Noles held on to defeat
the Tarheels 5-4 Saturday afternoon at
Dick Howser Stadium to capture its sixth
conference series in as many tries in 2007.
Jack Rye hit the game-winning, two-run
home run in the bottom of the fifth and
relievers Travis Burge and Danny Rosen
threw the final three innings to hand the
Seminoles their 15th conference victory of
North Carolina got their revenge with 'a
10-6 win on Sunday afternoon. The Tar
Heels pounded out 20 hits in game three,
the most given up by the Seminoles all sea-
son and the most allowed since May 8,
2004 at Virginia. Mark Gildea led the
offensive charge for FSU registering his
second, three-hit game of the series going

Gators Expected to Place 9 in
1st Three Rounds at NFL Draft
SEC Champions, National Champions, and fresh off a
dominant performance in a BCS title game, the Gators are
looking at 9 players that can realistically be taken in the first
three rounds of the 2007 NFL Draft:
Reggie Nelson, S A center field-like safety who was
a defensive leader on last year's championship squad, he'll
likely be the second safety taken on Day 1 behind LSU's
LaRon Landry. Hard hitter and fabulous in coverage. No.
Jarvis Moss, DE Generously compared to fellow for-
mer Gator Jevon Kearse, Moss busted on to the national
scene in '06 with dominant performances in the SEC and
BCS championship games. Will play defensive end at the
next level, but could play outside linebacker in a 3-4 if
taught the position. No. 20-35
Brandon Siler, LB A three year starter and former
SEC freshman of the year, Siler was the clear-cut leader of
the Gator defense in '06. Considered a solid middle line-
backer for an NFL 4-3 defense, Siler enters the NFL fresh
off a 77 tackle season. Second round
Ray McDonald, DE McDonald was the star, of
January's BCS Title Game, wrecking havoc behind the line
Suns Feature Kids Clinic on Sunday

Miami for a three game series.
The Gators took 2 of 3 from Kentucky
last week. Wildcat left-hander Chris Rusin
tossed his first career complete game and a
six-run second-inning outburst powered
the Wildcats to a 9-2 victory over Florida
on Friday. Saturday the Gators squared its
weekend series with a 10-7 triumph.
Holding a 3-2 advantage, the Gators tallied
five runs in the fourth to pull away and end
a five-game slide in league action.
On Sunday, pinch hitter Chris Petrie
snapped a 4-4 tie with a bases-loaded sin-
gle in the bottom of the ninth to help
Florida (23-20/10-8 SEC) edge Kentucky
(27-12-1/7-10-1 SEC), 5-4, in front of
3,004 fans on Sunday afternoon.
The Rattlers had another winning week
with a 2 out of three series over Maryland
Eastern Shore" on the road. The Rattlers
won the first game of Saturday's twin bill
7-1 and followed up with a 5-1 win in the
U Maryland Eastern Shore pounded out
17 hits Sunday in a 14-9 win over Florida
A&M, avoiding a clean sweep.
The UNF Ospreys lost both ends of a
double headers last Saturday when they
hosted Mercer. The first game was a 10-0
shutout and the second game went 10
innings with Mercer getting a 4-3 nod.
The Ospreys came back with an
impressive 8-2 win on Sunday to prevent
an embarrassing sweep.
NFL teams will be disci-
plined by commissioner
Roger Goodell for leaking
any confidential informa-
tion from interviews with
Goodell sent memos to
the 32 teams on Tuesday
warning them that all inter-
views should be considered
confidential and clubs will
be disciplined for conduct
detrimental to the league if
there are any leaks.
A recent story in Pro
Football Weekly identified
Georgia Tech WR Calvin
Johnson, Clemson DE
Gaines Adams and
Louisville DT Amobi
Okoye three highly
regarded prospects for
Saturday's draft as ad-
mitting they experimented
with marijuana. That report
cited unnamed club officials
and said the information
came from videotaped inter-
views at February's NFL
Goodell also has asked
for a review of interviewing
procedures at the combine.
He has not yet determined
what sort of discipline will
be implemented fo leaked
of scrimmage for the majority of the game. An all-SEC per-
former in '06, he bounced back from an injury plagued '05
campaign to help ensure his spot on an NFL roster for '07.
2nd or 3rd Round
Marcus Thomas, DT Off-field troubles may hurt
Thomas more than they would have in previous draft years.
Though stories actually differ on the exact reason why,
Florida dismissed Thomas from the football team mid-way
through the '06 season for a marijuana-related issue. Off-
the-field issues aside, Thomas is one of the more promising
defensive tackle prospects in this draft. Just don't expect
Cincinatti, Indianapolis, or Tennessee to take a risk on him.
3rd or 4th round
Earl Everett, LB A starter in 42 of 49 games, some
draftniks think he'll actually be drafted before fellow Gator
linebacker Brandon Siler. In '06, Everett recorded 85 tack-
les. 3rd or 4th round
Ryan Smith, CB Smith's journey to Florida included
a Fiesta Bowl victory, a degree, and a graduation ceremony
at Utah. Due to a one-year only rule that also allowed Kevin
Kruger to play for the UNLV hoops team after graduating
from Arizona State, Smith a grad student at Florida in '06
- got to finish out his college eligibility under Urban
Meyer as a Gator. A BCS Championship ring later, he'll be
playing on Sundays next season. 4th or 5th round
Dallas Baker, WR Chris Leak's number one target in
'06, the sure-handed Baker caught 151 passes and scored 21
touchdowns in four years as a Gator. The nephew of former
Saints wideout Wes Chandler, Baker has the NFL in his
blood. 4th or 5th round
DeShawn Wynn, RB Long moaned about in
Gainesville, Wynn came up when it mattered most hav-
ing arguably his best game as a Gator in the BCS Title Game
versus Ohio State. Banged up in '06, his carries and stats
took a bit of a hit. Could be a solid pro in a West Coast
offense due to above average receiving skills.

H From Actual Police Reports
H Did You Hear About?
CASE OF THE BLACK PVC PIPE An officer
was dispatched to the 1300 block of Moat St. in
reference to a domestic battery. Upon arrival he .:. ,r.
made contact with Mr. KH (victim). The victim 0
stated that he was walking north on Moat St. when.
his brother, Mr. RH (suspect) talked up from
behind him and struck him on the neck with a plas-
tic pipe. He said the suspect is always on drugs and
continuously causes problems for him. The officer
observed a minor laceration on the right side of the
victim's neck. He also observed a black PVC pipe I
with blood on it, lying in the grass. The victim refused Rescue. The PVC pipe was
taken to the property room.
THE DOPE MAN HIT HIM AND HE WANTS JUSTICE (He was the Suspect,
but became one of the victims) An officer was dispatched to the 1400 block of
Kings Rd. regarding a male who was the victim of a battery. Upon his arrival, he
was met by Mr. JM (suspect). Mr. JM was bleeding from his upper lip and advised
the dope man hit him in the mouth and he wanted something done about it. Mr. JM
refused medical attention. The officer conducted an investigation at the 1400 block
of Grothe St. Ms. MF (victim) advised the suspect got into a fight with a local dope
dealer and was hit in the mouth. The suspect fled the area and later came back to
confront the dope dealer. The victim advised she was walking behind the suspect
attempting to talk to him and prevent him from going back and confronting the drug
dealer. The suspect obtained a beer bottle and.broke it along the side of the roadway.
The suspect then walked up to the victim attempting to cut her with the broken beer
bottle. The witness (dope man) got between the suspect and victim and punched the
suspect in his face with his fist. The suspect fled the area on foot and ran to the 1400
block of Kings Rd, where he called the police.

:T HERE Two officers were dispatched to the
-.--..... 5700 block of Brait Ave. in reference to locating
j and arresting defendant Mr. B. Upon arrival,
Witness #1, Ms. S, told the officers that the
defendant wasn't there and allowed them to
come inside and look around. While walking
down the hallway they observed witness #2
/ asleep in a rear bedroom at the end on the hall-
way. They asked Ms. S again if anyone else was
in the home, and she said no. She then opened her bedroom door and Mr. B (the
defendant) was standing in the middle of the room in the dark. Once they took him
into custody and turned the bedroom light on, the officers observed in plain view on
the dresser Marijuana and crack cocaine. Ms. S said she had no idea the drugs were
on the dresser, that they belongs to Mr. B. A box of 9mm-live rounds was discov-
ered and the 9mm gun was in the car. Mr. B was booked into the PTDF.
It's the biggest night of the year, and you've got some big decisions to
make. Thankfully,. taffeta and polyester suits are still out (unless it's an 80s
theme). But aside from what to wear, there's where to eat, what to do after- and
how to live through the whole thing without drinking, drama or tearing your
dress (especially if you're a dude 'cause that would be weird).
The point is, some people freak out so much about making prom perfect
that they end up hating it. Funny because the best thing to do is to be your-
self. Don't try so hard. Just let it happen.
Why worry? Just take a minute to THINK. And that's where THINK.Prom can
We know you think all year. Prom is time to let go, right? Absolutely. But
THINK.Prom is more than a one-time deal. It's common sense and a commit-
ment to partying sober before, during and after prom. And it means if you want
to play dress-up, rent a sweet ride or drop a few bills on a steak dinner, that's
totally cool. Just try not to look like a rookie. Here's how:
Think about yourself. You know what's up. And you know you can do this
without drinking. You just have to decide.
Think about cash. Now do we have your attention? Enter the "Party Safe.
Party Sober." Video Scrapbook Contest, and your superior wisdom and cre-
ative genius could score you $500.
Think about your friends. It seems like everybody knows that one guy or
girl who just has to cross the line. But it's all fun and games until someone gets
hurt, right? What may seem funny at first is actually really serious. So put your
buds in the back seat and make sure they get home safe.
Think about your ride. Before you go, decide who's driving. And no, that
doesn't mean the guy who thinks he's best after a few beers. Driving better
with a buzz? Do you know how messed up that sounds?
Remember, you can create, protect or ruin a reputation all in one night. So
check out THINK.Prom and make sure your prom is a great one.
Will prom be a blur or a memory? It's your call. .

Lance Gross Tickles Your ... r
Funny Bone In Tyler
Perry's "House of Payne"
By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 by Andre' B.
Tyler Perry has a
new TV comedy
series entitled "House
of Payne." It is cen-
tered on one over-
where several over-
of the Payne family
are stuffed together.
The recipe is ripe for
all kinds of humorous
situations. One of the
characters is Calvin
Payne who is the only
child of Ella and
Curtis Payne. He is
played by Lance
Gross. When asked to
describe his role,
Gross says, "I play
Calvin who is a 25
year old college stu-
dent. I can't make up
my mind and don't
know what I want to
do so I'm using home
as a safety net. I'm
staying with my par-
ents, living off of
them and I keep
changing my major."
Gross was a col-
lege student in real
life but had an entire-
ly different view than
his TV character. He
says, "I went to
but I was very
focused on acting and
film production so I
knew exactly what I
wanted to do. I was
ready to get out of the
house and be on my
Referring back to
his character Calvin,
Gross laughs, "Yeah,
we are definitely dif-
ferent." When com-
paring Atlanta to Los
Angeles in terms of
working, Gross points
out, "You know, it's a
change of scenery. I've
only worked in
Atlanta is new to me
but I'm definitely
looking forward to it.
Gross has appeared on
"The Bernie Mac
Show," "Eve" and
It is also interesting
to note that Gross
turned down the
opportunity of becom-
ing a pro track and
field athlete to pursue
his dream of acting.
designer Karl Kani
actually hired Gross
for a national commer-
cial after meeting him
in an elevator at BET's
20th Anniversary after
party. "House of
Payne" has orders for
one hundred episodes
which insures at least
four to five seasons of
airing which is a testa-
ment to the strength of
Tyler Perry's mass
marketing appeal. The
show will debut on
TBS on June 9, 2007.

Wassup cont'd from D-4
Jemison, Lew Temple,
Jeremy Sisto and Andy
Griffith. This movie is
lovingly dedicated to this
film's writer/director the
late Adrienne Shelly who
was tragically murdered
by a construction worker
after confronting him
about the noise he was
making while fixing an
apartment under hers in
Greenwich Village, New
This movie is about a
small town waitress
Jenna (Russell), who is
an expert in baking pies.
She hates her life with
her control freak, bully,
Earl (Sisto) and is preg-
nant by him with their
first child that she does-
n't want. She has an
affair with her OB-GYN
Dr. Pomatter (Fillion)
and receives encourage-
ment to leave Earl from
her two co-working
waitress buddies Becky
(Hines) and Dawn
(Shelly). The pie restau-
rant is owned by grumpy
old Joe (Griffith) who
also eventually supports
Jenna's quest to leave
Earl and start her life
This film does not
have blockbuster hit
tagged onto it, but it is a
sweet, feel good film
that the whole family
can see barring one soft
sex scene. It's a good
rental prospect if you
would rather wait.
