SANFORD—Six women, all
but one of them white, will de-
cide whether Neighborhood
Watch volunteer George Zim-
merman murdered 17-year-old
Trayvon Martin in a case that
sparked widespread outrage
and prompted civil-rights
marches.
They will begin their work —
listening to testimony and eval-
uating evidence — Monday
morning.
On Thursday, attorneys who
had individually questioned
nearly 100 prospective jurors
went one by one picking the six
plus four alternates.
It was dramatic and conten-
tious —andrace was very much
at play.
The process was moving
along smoothly when defense
attorney Mark O’Mara piped
up.
“I would nowask the state to
give a race-neutral reason why
they have struck four white
womenina row,” he said.
In response, Circuit Judge
Debra S. Nelson asked Assistant

The calendar could put a
small kink in this year’s Inde-
pendence Day travel, according
to a forecast released Thursday
by travel clubAAA.
With the Fourth of July holi-
day falling on a Thursday this
year, the long weekendis a little
shorter than last year’s, when
the holiday fell on Wednesday.
That could result in slightly
fewer Americans taking a trip
this time around.
AAAsaidit expects 40.8 mil-
lion Americans to travel
50 miles or more from home
during the holiday period, com-
pared with 41.1 million during
last year’s holiday. That in-
cludes about 2 million Florid-
ians with plans for a July 4 get-
away, about evenwithlast year’s
headcount.

Alan Chambers, the often-
controversial leader of Orlando-
based Exodus International and
its “pray-away-the-gay” minis-
try, has issued an “excruciating”
apology to those hurt by his or-
ganization and said it will close
downafter 37 years.
“There’s a song we sing in
church—‘They’ll KnowWeAre
Christians By Our Love’ —andI
think we’ve gotten so far away
from that,” Chambers, a Winter
Park resident, said in a tele-
phone interview from Califor-
nia, where he was attending his
ministry’s 38th annual confer-
ence.

against, and I want to be known
