New Orleans family finds a home with

the help of Liberty & Calhoun relatives

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Bateman will
undoubtedly remember two things about 7:52 a.m. each
Sept. 17.
First, it's the date and time he came into this world
36 years ago.
After Saturday, it's also the date and time he very nearly
departed this world had it not been for a fortuitously-
placed utility pole that redirected the altitude of a vehicle
that hit him head-on.
Bateman escaped unharmed after an oncoming vehicle
veered in his direction, broke a utility pole and then used
the front of his patrol car as a ramp, becoming airborne
and shooting over his vehicle, then landing upside down
several yards behind him.
It was a heck of way to start his shift.

years, was parked in front of the Emergency Manage-
ment Office in Bristol that morning, monitoring passing

their most precious possessions
before they left, but a New Or-

smile about as they inched along
Interstate 10 in bumper-to-bum-

The Fradera family left later
than planned after a.fruitless
search for their two outdoor

indoor cats, along with their 17-

vated battery after a fight in a convenience store

Witnesses reported that Marcus Kevin Tyus,
S28, had a tee-ball bat when he got out of a truck to
confront Steven Fowler.
Tyus came at Fowler, brandishing the bat and
yelling obscenities, witnesses said. Tyus put down
the bat and started pointing at Fowler, still cursing,
and said Fowler's father "had dug his grave and
you're next in line," according to witnesses.
Tyus then got in the passenger's side of a vehicle
and as the group gathered in the Pit Stop parking lot
started to leave, he threw a beer bottle and struck
Fowler in the head. He then threatened to "get
Steve's father next," witnesses said.
Fowler left and went to his father's home. Tyus
did not follow.
Tyus was arrested Sept. 18 and released the next

Smith said it appeared that some moneN ma\ have been taken from
the register at King House Chinese restaurant. although some cash
was still in the money draw er after the break in. At the Family Dollar
store, a 10-pack of socks was torn open and a pair used as gloves in
an apparent attempt to keep from leaving behind fingerprints. A safe
that had been bolted into the floor and held an unspecified amount of
cash was removed, he said.
Smith and Wood went to Raulerson's residence at the Boyd Street
Apartments to ask about the break-ins. During an interview at the
sheriff's office, Raulerson stated that she took two people to the park-
ing lot that morning. One was a 17-year-old boy and the other she
identified as Donald Allen, 21, of Sneads.
Raulerson said she had taken the two to the parking lot to get a
soft drink, where she let them out and drove off.
After Allen and the juvenile were questioned, they gave recorded

Beware of fraudulent Web
sites seeking donations
from the Florida Department of Management Services
Relief and charity efforts for the victims of Hurri-
cane Katrina began immediately after the hurricane
de% stated the Gulf Coast area. Shortly thereafter,
web sites began to appear which were designed to
defraud unsuspecting users. Some of the activities
include soliciting donations for seemingly charita-
ble purposes, attempting to collect personal infor-
mation through phishing scams and also spreading
malware to unsuspecting users. Over the past few
days, domain names that redirect users to malicious
web sites have appeared online, in addition to e-mail
scams requesting donations for those impacted by
the hurricane. While some of these sites and mes-
sages may be legitimate, many are not. At the time
of this bulletin, please be aware that the following
domains are reported to be suspicious:

while checking e-mail on his lap-
top computer.
He was facing.east and did not
notice a westbound 2005 Toyota
Four-Runner heading his way
until the vehicle crossed the road
toward him.
"I noticed him when he came
ip on the curb :0 yards in firnt
of me," Bateman said. He later
learned the driver, Brent Allen
Hall of Marianna, 22, had fallen
asleep before the sports utility
vehicle went out of control.and
crossed the highway approaching
the high school.
"My radar did not alert me that
he was speeding and he never
hit the brakes," the deputy said,
estimating that Hall was traveling
around40mph. TheFour-Runner
hit the curb, struck two mailboxes
and broke a utility pole about five
feet in front of the patrol car as it
headed his way..
Remarkably, a 12-foot section
of the utility pole was thrown into
the air and landed on the back of
Bateman's vehicle. A smaller
section of the pole base remained
in the ground and when the Four-
Runner ran over it, the vehicle
became airborne. Bateman said
the Four-Runner was heading
"dead in front of me" but, given a
boost.by the broken~ section of the
utility pole, the vehicle flew onto
the hood of his patrol car. The
passenger's side tire ofHall's ve-
hicle hit the center of the hood of
the patrol car and scraped across
the top of the vehicle.
"I was crouching down from
the time I saw him until le hit
me...it was probably two seconds
at most," said Bateman. "Then he
rolled his car and landed upside
down about 10 or.15 yards behind
my vehicle."
His first thought was of fall-
ing power lines. "Right after it
happened. I heard the-are of the
Stfaisforiner aid sparks fl'ew down

in front of my car," Bateman said.
After looking around carefully,
he had to push hard to open his
door which was jammed from
the damage to the roof. Making
sure no power lines were nearby,
he eased out covered in shards
of glass from the car's busted
When Bateman went to check
:on the driver, he found him get-

said he was unhurt and the two
men went to the side of the Emer-
gency Management building,
where Bateman called an am-
bulance and notified the Florida
Highway Patrol.
- 'WhenI first saw him, I didn't
-believ he ewas going to hit me,"

Bateman said. "Then there was.
the snap of hitting the pole, a
big thump landing on my hood

Both vehicles were totaled,
along with Bateman's computer.
Allen, who had just bought the
Toyota, told Bateman he had just
gotten off work at the GP mill
and had nodded off while heading
home to Jackson County.
He was charged with failure to
maintain a single lane:
After brushing off the broken
glass and letting emergency
medical workers check him over,
Bateman went home for a shower

To his credit, President Bush took some of the blame for the
slow relief effort of Hurricane Katrina. In fact, he said this is
probably why he is not going to run for a third term.

Big summit at the U.N., and President Bush warned the presi-
dent of Syria to stop letting terrorists into Iraq. And then the
president of Syria warned Bush to start paying attention to
natural disasters. DAVID LETTERMAN

Did you know former FEMA director Michael Brown is a law-
yer? Leave it to Busht to find the only lawyer in history who's
slow getting to a disaster. Usually, they're the first ones there
handing out business cards. JAY LENO

Disney has opened up its first theme park in China. 10,000
children showed up on opening day and that was just to
make the t-shirts. CONAN O'BRIEN

According to the Washington Post, 5 out of the top 8 FEMA
officials got their jobs with no experience handling disasters,
and many got their jobs just cause they worked on the Bush
campaign. See this is wrong. If you want people experienced
in handling disasters, get people who worked on the Gore
campaign. JAY LENO

Off the coast of North Carolina Hurricane Ophelia continues
to lurk. That is what I was worried about after Katrina, copycat
hurricanes. Hopefully Ophelia will peter out-and drizzle away.
Just to be safe though, the President went on a two-week va-

On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus,
four airliners, two.trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon, and
the city of New Orleans. Maybe you're just not lucky. I'm not
saying you don't love this country, I'm just wondering how
much worse it could be if you were on the other side.
S- BILL MAHER, about President Bush

President Bush spoke last week to the nation about the prob-
lems with the relief effort. And afterwards, Kanye West gave
the rebuttal. -JAY LENO

The rebuilding of New Orleans is already underway. The re-
lief arndreconstruction contracts for rebuilding the city have
already been awarded, many of them no bid. Among the re-
cipients, major Republican contributors Bechtel and Fluor, the
Shaw Group, client of Joe Allbaugh, ex-FEMA head, and of
course, come on, don't be shy, say it with me --Halliburton.

Supreme Court chief justice nominee John Roberts said in his
confirmation hearings that he has no agenda and no platform.
You know what that means, he could be the next Democratic
presidential candidate. -JAY LENO

Michael Brown, the head of FEMA, has been relieved of his
command. He has been asked to return to Washington im-
mediately. He is expected to arrive:in about a week. He had a
good excuse, though. He said he thought freezing in the face
of national crisis made him look presidential. -BILL MAHER

FEMA Director Micheal Brown said he was stepping down
because he was an ineffective leader who had lost the confi-
dence of the people, to which Bush said, 'That's no reason to
quit your job.' -JAY LENO

Are you watching the senate conformation hearings of John
Roberts? It's been sort of dull so they decided to liven up the.
process by making him answer in the form of a question.

Former FEMA Director Michael Brown said he was going
back to Washington, D.C. to get more hands on disaster ex-
perience. In fact, I think he's running Amtrak for a while.

Inmates at the most secure prison in Vermont have won first
prize at the Champlain Valley Fair for their home grown garlic
pumpkins and mini roses. You know it is amazing the effect
Martha Stewart is having on our penal system.

Text: 1 John 2: 15 17
The Minneapolis Tribune reported
that Judge John Weeks spotted a man
in the courtroom wearing a hat. The
judge was insulted that the man had
so little respect. He ordered the man to
leave the room.
Then the clerk called for the case of
George A. Rogde. Rogde was charged
with burglary and had been freed on
bond. When Rogde did not come for-
ward, the prosecution explained, "Your
honor, that is the man you ordered'from
the courtroom." The police are report-
edly still looking for Mr. Rogde.
The pride of life is pretending you
are something that you are not. It is
presenting yourself more worthy than
you are. It includes the vanity of trying
to out do our.neighbors: Paul warned in
Ro 12:3 "not to think of himself more
highly than he ought to think (KJV)."
Simply put it is arrogance.
How does one describe the pride of
life? Pretending to be a pious, godly
person on Sunday while living for the
devil during the week would be one ex-
ample. Buying a new car because your
neighbor down the road has a new one
in his garage is another example. To
think that you are the only one who can
do the job describes it. To think that
you are much smarter than everyone
around you can explain it. Satan tempt-
ed Eve with the pride of life when he
tricked, her into thinking she could be
as wise as God is by eating the fruit.
The pride of life is one of the sev-
en things that are an abomination to
God in Pr 6:17. As such, pride always
comes before a fall. The loftier you
make yourself appear, the harder you
fall when God proves youwrong. Your
facade will pass away and you will be
seen for what you are. Think of your-
self with sober judgment and be real.

Th Florida Small Business Development Center Network

recognized with National Economic Development Award

The Florida Small Business
Development Center Network
(FSBDCN) was notified on Sept.
7 that they have received high
honors. The US Department of
Commerce announced the FSB-
.DCN as the winner of the 2005
Excellence in Economic Devel-
opment Award for Excellence in
Economic Adjustment Strategies
category. The award recognizes
the FSBDCN's commitment to

the small business community of
Florida following the aftermath
of four hurricanes crisscrossing
Florida's business community in
The FSBDCN Directors po-
sitioned throughout Florida are
economic leaders in their regions.
This enabled them to work close-
ly and collaboratively with the
regional and county economic
development agencies; workforce

boards; chambers of commerce;
the Governor's Office of Tour-
ism, Trade and Economic Devel-
opment; Enterprise Florida; and
others to ensure that our state's
business economic health came
back to pre-hulricane conditions
and improved. During the hurri-
cane upheaval, 4,086 jobs were
retained and 123 new jobs were.
Jerry Cartwright, FSBDCN


State Director, said that "2004
brought the need for a mission ad-
justment for the SBDC Network.
The professional staff organized
and implemented a statewide
strategy to get the state's.small
businesses back on track and
growing. I'm extremely proud of
the efforts our entire Network put
forth during last year's hurricane
season and that experience has
provided us with the necessary
tools to now facilitate the recov-
ery efforts of businesses in Loui-
siana, Mississippi and Alabama."
The state of Florida was over-
whelmed by Hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne in 2004.
SFlorida needed a statewide orga-
nization to rise up in support of
the state's small business com-
munity and the FSBDCN rose to
the challenge. Professional staff
that no longer had an office were
in the field counseling clients,
assisting small business owners
with different applications, and
partnering to assist DRC clients
nearest their home base; train-
ing was. adjusted to recognize
the needs of small business dur-
ing trying times; and information
needs turned to the real economic
needs of the clients.
On Sept. 22, Jerry Cartwright
will be presented the award at
the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City

in Arlington, Virginia, during
the EDA's Symposium for 21st
Century Economic Development.
He will accept it on behalf of the
professional staff in Florida who
stepped up, created a better busi-
ness community and savedjobs in

We should showour support

for our volunteer firefighters

To the editor:
On Monday, September 20th,
I was traveling on Hwy 73, just
south of Hwy 20inClarksville, I
saw a deli\ er) truck parked next
to the road %\i th black smoke
coming out of the engine com-
partment. The driver had already
used his fire extinguisher and was
coming out of the truck w hen the
flames began to bur through the
.dash and into the drivers compart-
I used my cell phone to call
911 and reported the fire. Within
6 minutes of my call, two mem-
bers of the Clarksville Volunteer
Fire Department arrived with
their quick response truck. By
this time, the fiberglass truck was
burning from front to rear.

The fireman worked quickly
with the small hose and 250 gal-
lons of water, going from front
to rear repeatedly and finally
extinguishing the fire before the
second truck arriTed. All \\ho
witnessed these events were
impressed by the VFD's quick
response and ability to extinguish
such a fire involving so much
paper, plastic and diesel with the
smaller truck and less than 250
gallons of water.
E\ er\one in our community
needs to support our local VFD
and show appreciation for what
they do. It could be any one of
us they help next time.

laugh when the\ suddenly noticed
the sole passenger filling up the
backseat of a small car. It was a
potbellied pig.
"It was unbelievable...that was
the fun side of it," Debbie says of
the parade of people with their
beloved pets in tow as they fled
the coming storm.
Her cats continued to cry a bit
and she administered a little over-
the-counter allergy medicine to
calm them down and make them
drowsy. All around her, though,
a number of unusual animals
seemed to be taking it all in stride.
Watching their progress has
the iguana moved, what's the pig
doing and is the bird still singing?
gave them some much-needed
diversion along the way. It took
seven-and-a-half-hours to cover
a route that usually took two-

When the Fraderas fled New
Orleans, they grabbed what they
could and took off. Debbie
Fradera, 51, packed up her daugh-
ter's wedding dress, a few family
videos and photographs. While
his wife of 15 months and her
family evacuated, Jon who is
in the Navy Seebees is now in
the Gulf Port area, helping with
the cleanup.
When they left, they did not
know if they would be back the
next day, the next week or even
the next month. But now, Deb-
bie knows, they will never again
live in their 75-year-old two-story

historic home with its pillars in
the front, original wood floors
and French doors that stands just
a couple of miles from Lake Pon-
chatrain. After the floods began
to recede, a friend checked on
their property and reported it still
was under six feet of water and
the home "had black mold every-
where," according to Debbie.
"Our city's gone," said Debbie.
Her family escaped the worst of
it, but she knows how terrible
things have been, through news
reports as well as talking with
relatives who have spread out in
many different directions trying
to find a place to live and a way
to pick up the pieces of their un-
certain lives.
"It's inhumane for this to
happen in America," she said.
"People were dying left and right.
There was no water, food, or
batteries for days. People were
on 1-10 for six days." A relative
who had been at the Superdome
told her people had become de-
lusional, attacking and killing
others, including babies. "He
said he thought he was going to
die there," she said.
"Mistakes were definitely
made," she said of the delayed
rescue efforts, but she believes
in the New Orleans mayor and
their police chief. "They did
everything they could with the

Katie and her
husband are
shown here at
their wedding last
year Jon is the
son of Silas and
Muncie Green of

resources they had," she said.
Now when they make a call on
their cell phone, there are painful
reminders of what is left behind.
The numbers of friends' homes
and favorite restaurants are still
on the speed dial but of course,
there is no longer anyone there
to answer.

After spending some time
visiting Billy and Cody Stouta-
mire in Liberty County's Blue
Creek area (Cody is Jon's aunt;
his parents are Silas and Muncie
Green), the family is now seitled
in a Mexico Beach home owned
by Arthur and Melba Faurot.
Debbie and her daughter are
teachers and have already found
jobs in Port St. Joe. Pepe, who
has been employed with Pepsi
America for the past 25 years,
has gone back to work with the
company for a couple of weeks in
Baton Rouge. He does not know
ho\v long he will be there.

The family is still working out
arrangements for 57-year-old Pat,
who sorely misses her friends
at the New Orleans facility for
mentally-disabled adults where
she used to go every day.
And they are waiting to see
how their friends and relatives
are faring.
One cousin, Debbie said, was
staying in a hotel room with her
nine dogs when the storm was
on its way.
Another cousin, now jh ing in
a state park outside Birmingham,
Alabama, found a unique way
to keep her 12 cats corralled.
The woman, her daughter and
sister are packed into a small
camper. They bought four small
zip-up tents to put up outside and
placed three cats in each. Later,
other campers noting their setup,
came by to bring some extra food
for what they thought were "the
children" staying in the smaller
tents. The effort was certainly

appreciated although the Good
Samaratians may have been a bit
surprised to learn \ ho the actual
occupants were.
The Fradera family came to
see Jon's relatives in Bristol
Friday and stopped off to visit
with the volunteers at the Lib-
erty County Sheriff's Department
chicken pilau fundraiser for hur-
ricane victims.
In the meanwhile, they have
got a lot of work to do to get back
on track. Debbie's husband lost
two vehicles to the floodwaters.
Her daughter and son-in-law's
apartment building in Slidell was
flooded, leaving their truck and
two storage areas underwater.
They have received a strong
welcome in Liberty and Calhoun
counties, as well as in Gulf Coun-
ty, where their neighbors came
over and invited them to church.
The Catholic Fraderas are enjoy-
ing the hospitality of a Baptist
Church in Mexico Beach and
were surprised when the pastor
handed over a key to the church
so they could use the computer
whenever they wanted to try to
reach their many friends and
relatives scattered by the storm.
"They came and just opened their
arms to us," Debbie said of the
warm \ elcomlle.
And now, with another hur-
ricane heading for Louisiana
and little if anything left there
to retrieve, the family is grateful
to have found a new home in the
Florida Panhandle.

Second, the children brought
their teddy bears to class. Bryce
O'Brien told me what they did with
their teddy bears. "We read two
stories with them in our laps and
we sang a song with them." The
kids also went on a bear hunt. Ms.
Alday hid their bears and the chil-
dren had to find them.
Among other projects, the chil-
dren have studied turtles and live
tadpoles. Also, the children have
colored a teddy bear to match their
own. The children are eager to
learn .and are having a great time
studying their letters.

in the third quarter. BHS put to-
gether an 11-play drive to move
the ball to the Vernon goal line.
On fourth and goal from inside
the five-yard line, the Tigers
elected to go for the touchdown.
The running play was stopped at
inside the Vernon one-yard line
and the ball was turned over to
the Jackets.
One first down Vernon decided
to try to run to the outside of the
Blountstown defense. The Tigers'
defense rose to the occasion and
drove the Vernon line back-into


the end zone. Several Tiger de-
fenders then wrapped up the Ver-
non quarterback for a safety that
moved the Tiger lead to 9-6.
After the safety, Vernon had
to kick to the Tigers. The Tigers'
offense looked ready to put the
game away as they used another
long drive to move the ball down-
field, but it was Vernon that would
strike next. The Tigers fumbled
the ball and a Vernon defender
scooped up the loose pigskin and
started towards the Tigers' goal
line. The defender cut back across

on the ball all the way down the
field, he outran the stunned Tigers
for a score. Vernon missed the
extra point and the Tigers trailed
for the first time. The score \\as
12-9. Vernon leading, with 11:04:
remaining in the game..
The Tiger offense responded
six plays later.
On fourth and one from the
Tiger.48 >ard line Guilford ran
a quarterback keeper to the left.
He squirted through the defen-
sive front and simply outran the
defenders for a touchdown to put
the Tigers back in front, 15-12.
After Guilford had crossed the
goalline. a Tiger trailing the play
was called for a personal foul that
penalized BHS 15 yards on the
extra poiit. The try for the extra
point was no good and the lead
stood at 15-12 with 8:05 remain-
ing in the game.

With their backs against the
wall, Vernon looked for a way
to respond. They found it in the
passing of quarterback Jed Tyre.
Vernon put together a 14-play
drive that was saved twice by
Tyre's passes on third down that
were good for first downs.
Vernon moved the ball inside
the Tigers' five-yard line and ran
three consecutive running plays.
The third play was a quarterback
keeper by Tyre from less than one
yard out that scored a touchdown.
The score, k ith 3:47 left on the
clock. gave the Jackets a lead of
1 8-15. After the touchdown. one,
player from each team w as called
for a personal foul. The penal-
ties forced Vernon to attempt the
extra point from the nine-)ard
line instead of the three-yard
line. The extra point attempt was
wide right.
That ni2ht. the two teams:
combined to miss fi'e extra
points. Vernon missed three and
the Tigers missed two. Those
three, missed points by Vernon
ended up being the ones that
cost the most as the Jackets lost
"The game was a whole lot
closer than it should have been,"-
said BHS Coach Bobby Johns.
who admitted, "our mistakes

came at crucial points."
His players were penalized
after celebrating a crucial touch-
down. "We've got to do a better
job of acting like we've won
games before," he said. "We
were all excited,.but we've got
to show a little more self-control
and class.".
"I think Michael Guilford
showed a lot of guts," the coach
said. "He didn't play his best
game, buthe got it done \ hen %\ e
needed him to."
.Atta\i ay Corey Silcox and
Ivory all had great ganies on of-
fense. "Jonathan Lockhart had a
tremendous catch on a real crucial
third down," he said;,and added
this his son, Chaz Johns, "had
a great game against the best
noseguard he'll see all year long."
Johns, who is a center, graded out
at 94"- for the game.
Defensiiel.. Ryan Baker and
Corey Silcox had 11 tackles
"I'd rather not ha e any more
of those if I canhelp it," the coach
said of the last minute come--
from-behind w in. "Our goal is to
go undefeated again this .year."
This Friday is open for the
team but on Sept. 30. Johns said,
"We're going to have our hands
full," when they host 4-A Leon.

Conserve fuel in your own backyard

With gas prices increasing
and shortages in some areas,
consumers have been.asked to
conserve fuel and be prudent in
their use of energy; There have
been many tips on how to re-
duce fuel consumption in your
car. but did you know there are a
number of practical ways to re-
duce the use of gasoline in yourr
own backyard?
On average, it takes one gal-
loniof gasoline to mow an acre
of la in. There are approximate-
ly 5 million acres of home lax ns%
in the state of Florida. N lo\ ing
each of these lawns twenty times
per year would result in the use
of 100 million gallons of gas.per

serves a purpose. You may not
need a thick stand of grass in
every square foot of your land-

lawn grasses are not very tree

todecline in close proximity to
large trees or groupings of trees.
As ain older la'\n succumbs to

This excessive growth requires
more time, money and gasoline
to nio\\. ,
Most homeowners overdo it
with too much nitrogen and too
little potassium. Fertilizers with
the correct ratios of nitrogen and
potassium will produce the right"
balance of shoot growth as com-
pared to root growth. Choose a
fertilizer with at least fifty per-
cent of the nitrogen in a slow re-
lease form. Fertilize to produce
adequate grow th and the correct
color. If Nour law\n is a healthy
green and you're mo\w ing, mo\\ -
ing, mowI ing. why add more fer-
Never apply more than the
recommended amount of fertil-
izer per application. But you can
al\w ays split the total amount into
t\o or more applications. whichh
\\ill produce more e\en growth
and minimize sudden gro\\th
Nlan\ people choose to o\er-
seed their la;ns with ryegrass
during fall. But weigh the desire
to have a green lawn through
the winter with the extra time
and costs.(gas, fertilizer, water,
pesticides. 'etc.) involved with
maintaining it.
Finally, keep your gas pow-
ered la\wn and landscape equip-
ment in good w working condition.
It can make a difference in how
efficiently the equipment oper-
ates. Make sure the equipment is
clean. Change the oil, if needed.
Replace or clean the air filter and
spark plug. Keep law nmower
blades sharp. Basically, follow
the o\ ner's manual for routine
Implementing these ideas will
help conserve fuel and result in a
healthier la\In as well.
Tip of the cIcek: Hunmming-
birds are \er> active right now. -
.To enjo) these little birds put out
an artificial feeder. However,
feeders should not be the sole
source of food provided. The
sugar solution may appeal to the
hummingbirds' sweet tooth, but
it provides little nourishment..
Nectar; is much more. than just
water and sugar.
Packages of instant nectar
may be found- at 'many lawn
.and garden stores. You also can
prepare your o% n solution with
1 part white, granulated, cane
sugar to 4'parts _water. Boil the
sugar solution to help,' dissolve,
the sugar. Then allow it to cool
before filling a feeder. Using a
sweeter solution, sugar substi-
tutes or. honey cduld be lethal
to hummers. It also is not nec-
essary to add red food coloring.
The birds will be attracted to the
red feeders.
