December 17, 2008 01:52PM

Real estate and land-use attorney Ron Weaver has joined 30 other
business and government leaders to create Real Estate Lives, a
non-profit organization planning to counsel, train and find jobs for
those who are unemployed as a result of the housing downturn. Florida lost 71,900 construction jobs
between September 2007 and September 2008, according to federal data.
The group is building a job database that so far has about 70 listings,
even though many companies have no jobs available.
