NEW YORK (AP) -- She lost her fiance in a hail of police gunfire on their wedding day, but a court has ruled that Nicole Paultre can still have his name.

A civil court judge approved an application to legally change her name to Nicole Paultre Bell, in memory of the victim of the November 25 shooting, Sean Bell, her lawyer said Friday.

The name change will become official next week, said the attorney, Sanford Rubenstein.

Paultre, 22, and Bell, 23, met in high school and had two children together.

In her name-change petition, she wrote: "In honor of the memory of my fiance, Sean Bell, the father of our two children who was killed by police on the morning of the day we were to be married, I request this name change so that my surname will be the same as my two children."

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
