9.-12. By a contrast to the huge Nis tobacco factory, "Energogas" could easily qualify as a "small business" in any light industrial area in America.This is its head office, a small single story building, pockmarked by shrapnel. Before it was bombed by NATO, "Energogas" used to produce butane gas for household use. Now, Nis's only supplier of such gas is practically out of business. In photo No. 12., a crew member from one of the Nis TV channels was filming the TiM editor as he snapped this picture; 13. TiM editor's wife at the elementary school, "Ratko Vukicevic."  From left to right: Mrs. Stela Jovanovic, the City TV news reporter, Mrs. Marina Ostojic, the school principal, Mrs. Djurdjevic and an identified teacher at the school, who wore the TiM "Stop NATO's War" button.
