NEW TARGET TO UPROOT RESIDENTS

Residents of a Westside mobile home park will be forced to move to make way for a new Target.

The Jacksonville City Council on Tuesday approved rezoning about 15 acres to accommodate the development at 6301 Roosevelt Blvd.

A majority of the residents are on month-to-month leases and will be uprooted by the changes. A handful of people who rent lots in the park complained during Tuesday's meeting, saying they weren't notified of the development plan.

Councilman Jim Overton set up a neighborhood meeting, which he could not attend, and attorney Paul Harden fielded questions about the proposal.

"Nobody is doing anything for us," said Harry Link, a resident who will have to move because of the change.

P&G CEO TO BECOME CHAIRMAN

Procter & Gamble Co., the consumer products maker behind brands such as Tide detergent and Crest toothpaste, said yesterday that chief executive and president A.G. Lafley will take on the additional title of chairman in July.

Lafley, 54, has been recognized for helping to improve P&G's fortunes since his hasty promotion in a management shake-up in mid-2000.

He replaces John E. Pepper, who is retiring July 1 after 38 years with P&G. Pepper, 61, will remain as a director of P&G and will continue as chairman of the board's executive committee for another year.

MCAFEE ACCEPTS HIGHER OFFER

Computer virus-detector McAfee.com Corp. has accepted a new, higher-priced takeover offer from Network Associates, the Internet security company that spun it off in 1999.

The deal, announced yesterday, calls for McAfee investors to get 0.78 of a share of Network Associates stock for each McAfee share they own. That is 16 percent higher than Network Associates' original offer, which McAfee's independent directors rejected as too low.

NAACP JOINS CRACKER BARREL SUIT

The NAACP is joining the racial discrimination lawsuit against Tennessee-based Cracker Barrel restaurants.

The civil rights group scheduled a news conference for today in Washington to detail its involvement.

David Sanford, a lawyer representing other plaintiffs in the case, said yesterday the lawsuit was being amended to name the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People as a plaintiff and co-counsel.

The class-action lawsuit accuses the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc., headquartered in Lebanon, Tenn., of segregating black customers in the smoking section and denying them service.
