of deceiving elderly residents into paying for home repair work that was not Evidence indicated that the man intimidated one elderly woman into paying him after he threatened her with a claiming he had injured his knee while working at her Testimony throughout the trial indicated that the work per formed was not only but was substandard in many and that the charges for the work were The jury sentenced the man to the maximum jail time and it fined him Thats a sentence with which few will find Those who prey upon the weak are beyond contempt and merit no Fountains restoration a significant

trunk and slammed its Her seat back was reclined about 45 She wore a dingy white swe pants that probably were special ly created by Omar the and Not cowboy the kind of boots policemen To the right the cabbie And Do you know which gate we So she sifted through a pile of stuff on the seat beside her and came up with a dogeared she Gimme your flight departure time and We dutifully did as we were told and in a few minutes thanks to the radio in her car she knew where we needed to be and was getting us Along the we learned every David Sullens thing youd ever want to know about the cab driving business at least as it is conducted in Fort Worth and about some of the more exciting moments from the last five or six years of our drivers Thats how long shes been We for that she doesnt carry a And we knew there are certain parts of town where she wont go to pick up a She said shes been known to tell the dispatcher she can just send someone else down there or Ill just go ahead and go to the house its not worth taking a chance on getting killed The talkative cabbie told us she quit carrying a gun after she almost shot a guy who was doing strange things to himself in her back She told him to stop and he ignored So she told him to stop or she was going to shoot him and he still ignored She announced on her radio that she was about to shoot this guy and another driver who happened to be no Dont shoot There was more to the but the bottom line was that she pulled the other driver pulled up behind her jumping from his own ran to hers and pulled the fare He was so out of our driver he just kind of looked around and This isnt where I Our cab driver said that after she settled down and realized she might actually have shot someone who was really just a mental she got rid of her gun and hasnt carried one That made us feel a little We also in the course of the 30 minutes it took us to get from the hotel to the airport that our driver leases her a police a day plus whatever she spends on gas and Her com pany has about 75 such vehicles Before she makes any money for herself on any given our driver she has to make that plus fuel and oil Anything she makes beyond she Our ride cost us about so if she can make three airport runs a shes making By the time we got to the Id decided Id just as soon our paths didnt cross again Id learned a lot on the but most of it I really didnt want to But on the other Im glad I got to meet that Shes an indi Nobody cut her from any She enjoys what shes doing and if you dont like the way shes doing the heck with Aboard the airplane on the way I told someone about the voc iferous She listened to my thought for a minute and then remarked that the world would prob ably be a better place if more of us were like well David editor and publisher
