Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASON FOR EXTENSION OF TIME REQUEST

WRJM-TV JUST NOW BEGAN A CONSISTENT CASH FLOW IN ITS FIFTH YEAR OF OPERATION AS A UPN AFFILIATE. PRESENT FINANCIAL STATUS WILL NOT SUPPORT A LOAN FOR COMPLETION OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DIGITAL SIGNAL. ALL FUNDS FOR SUCH CONSTRUCTION MUST BE PROVIDED BY THE PRINCIPAL AS AN OUTSIDE SOURCE. THE SOURCE OF FUNDS HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS RECEIVABLES FROM ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES FOR THE FORT RUCKER FLIGHT SCHOOL XXI. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE BUILDING IS DUE FOR FINAL ACCEPTANCE TUESDAY AUGUST 16, 2005. MORE THAN HALF OF THE SIMULATORS ARE ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE SOUTH WING. WHEN THE GOVERNMENT CAN FIND THE FUNDS, AND ARE WILLING TO PAY THE ARCHITECT AND THE GENERAL CONTRACTOR THE AMOUNTS OUTSTANDING, THE DIGITAL TELEVISION CONSTRUCTION WILL HAVE THE NECESSARY FUNDS TO COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION AND WRJM-TV CAN BEGIN BROADCASTING A DIGITAL SIGNAL. AXCERA WILL SHIP THE NEEDED EXCITER WHEN FUNDS ARE RECEIVED BY THEM. THE ANTENNA AND OTHERS NECESSARY EQUIPMENT ARE ON HAND. THE GOVERNMENT CONSTRUCTED THE WORLD'S LARGEST FLIGHT SIMULATOR FACILITY AT FORT RUCKER. THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PHASE WAS COMPLETED AS DEMANDED, IN RECORD TIME, FASTER THAN THE GOVERNMENT COULD DISPATCH THE FUNDS.

Attachment 1


Exhibit 2
Description:
EXHIBIT 2: PROGRESS DURING PREVIOUS CONSTRUCTION PERIOD

THE FUNDS MADE AVAILABLE FOR CONSTRUCTION WAS USED TO PAY FOR THE ANTENNA AND OTHER EQUIPMENT NECESSARY FOR A DIGITAL SIGNAL AND IS ON HAND. AXCERA WILL SHIP THE NEEDED EXCITER WHEN FUNDS ARE RECEIVED BY THEM. EXTENSIVE EFFORT WAS APPLIED TO SECURING FINANCING. THE MINIMUM OF $7.5 MILLION WAS NOT MET BECAUSE, EVEN AFTER MUCH NEGOTIATIONS, THE OWNERS OF OTHER MEDIA PROPERTY WOULD NOT SELL. THE CASH FLOW POSTURE OF WRJM-TV IS PROJECTED TO BE SO FAVORABLE ON DECEMBER 31, 2005, THAT THE FINANCIAL OBSTACLES ERECTED BY OTHER LENDERS OF LOWER MINIMUMS WILL BE REMOVED.
