Photographer Rich Ryan and Reporter Sarah McKenzie stopped Roger Horne, III, a third-year student at North Central University in Elliot Park, on a recent morning as he crossed Elliot Avenue on his way to his dorm room. He was dressed in his pajamas -- a sweatshirt and flannel pants -- and planned to go get ready for the day. The pair asked Horne, 21, what was on his mind.

 

"Well, I've been dealing with a parking situation," Horne said with an annoyed look on his face. "I've been frustrated with security. I lent my car to my sister and didn't switch the permit. Then I needed to get a temporary permit. ... I was worried about getting a ticket or getting booted."
