Item  5.  Other  events.

     On  September  12,  2002,  the  Company requested a hearing before a NASDAQ
Listing  Qualifications  Panel  in  order to appeal a NASDAQ Staff Determination
indicating  that,  in  association  with  its recent private placement of $3.525
million  to  accredited  investors,  the  Company  does  not  comply  with  the
shareholder approval provisions set forth in Marketplace Rules 4350(i)(1)(B) and
4350(i)(1)(D)(ii),  and  that  the Company's securities are subject to delisting
from  the NASDAQ Small Cap Market on September 13, 2002. The Staff Determination
found  that  certain  provisions  of the placement documents as drafted required
shareholder  approval  prior  to  finalization  of the placement, and that other
provisions  provided  for  prohibited  alternative  outcomes  should shareholder
approval  not  be  granted.


     In  light  of  the  Company's  request,  the  delisting  of  the  Company's
securities  will  be  stayed  pending  the  Panel's  decision.   There can be no
assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing.


     Pursuant  to  the  requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant  has  duly  caused  this  report  to  be  signed on its behalf by the
undersigned  hereunto  duly  authorized.
