The Landlord Who Wouldn't Evict!
The Good News of the Day:
September 23rd marked 41 days that the 6-foot, 4-inch tall guy with the tattoo of Jesus on his left arm and the gray ponytail has worked at Walgreens pharmacy on Celanese Road. "The 2-to-10 shift. Proud to do it," says Peirce. He is not your usual landlord. One of Pierce's tenants worked in construction and has a wife and two little kids. A second man worked in utilities contracting and has a baby in the house. Both tenants got laid off several months ago. When they could no longer pay rent what did Pierce do? He refused to evict them -- and instead went to work at Walgreens, "to help pay the bills on the properties."

Tip of the Day: Send a flower with your child to school to hand out to their teachers just to let them know how much they are appreciated.
