with Jack Ruby, who shot and killed Oswald while he
was in police custody. It is thought that the transcript
was done for a proposed movie. Watkins said the items

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
~ A Celebration of Country Soul ~
A Celebration of Country Soul was the theme for The
Jacksonville Links' annual Western Gala fundraiser held at the
Jacksonville Fairgrounds. Dressed in the latest glitzy western
fashions and ornate boots, as were their guests, these ladies
always think of everything! As guests checked in with the
greeter's at the red and white gingham covered table flanked
with lighted Cacti and original paintings by Jacksonville Links
member and talented artist Mrs. Vivian Walker, they received
'currency' for the casino games and colorful bandanas. Leaving
the area they were warmly greeted by the Jacksonville Links
president, Dr. Geri Williams Smith as they entered the west-
ern decorated 'Corral'. The Fairgrounds Expo Ballroom had
been transformed into a Western Mecca featuring a giant
fenced in 'Holstein', ballroom columns adorned with balloons
bearing the same pattern as the giant Holstein, and giant cacti
throughout. Jacksonville Links hostesses, bearing lanterns,
were on hand to seat the guests. In another area of the 'Corral'
there was the 'Link Saloon' that had casino games, libations
and a photographer to capture the memories of the evening.
Tables were adorned with red and white gingham coverings
throughout the 'Corral' and were topped with straw hats and
miniature lighting. DJ Darron Hardmon playing contempo-
rary tunes created a most entertaining mood as guests arrived
and during each of the breaks of the versatile Elite Band!
For dinner there was Chicken Marsala, Seasoned Pasta,
Caesar Salad and 'Texas Toast' compliments of the
Carrabba's Italian Grill. Compliments of Bruster's Real Ice
Cream guests enjoyed delectable and divine ice cream sundaes
for dessert. After dinner line dancing instructions from former
ROAR member, Ms. Latricia LaDet kept the crowd on their
feet. This is always an enjoyable segment of the event and I
hear that next year they plan to add some extra time for Ms.
Door prizes included gift certificates from Stein Mart,
Carrabba's Italian Grill, and Mill Cove Golf Club.
Leading the planning of this fantastic event were

of their ability and therefore needed her to play a bigger role.
Tonyaa said she was hesitant realizing that she is more or less the
liberal voice for the paper, having grown up in Jacksonville on the
Northside. However, she did accept because she also recognizes that
Mike Clark is a person who listens. In addition, she will be able to

the officer shot him several times, according to witness. The victim
Jamaal Williams, 20, is in critical condition at the hospital. Another

taser gun when he showed resistance.
There have been 21 shootings in Jacksonville within the past 13

SH Did You Hear About?...
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BETWEEN MOTHER
AND DAUGHTER an officer was dispatched to the
7400 block of Countryman Lane for domestic vio-
lence. Upon his arrival, he made contact with the sus-
pect Mrs. E and her 19 year old daughter, victim Ms.
J. According to the victim, her mother came home ,'.
from work and was angry about the house not being
clean. She stated that she locked herself in a room and
her mother broke the door to get to her. She stated that
her mother grabbed her by the hair and they began to
fight. She noticed blood on her hand and believed that
her mother cut her with a knife, but stated that she did
not see a knife. According to the suspect, she and her daughter argued and the
daughter licked herself in the room. the suspect admitted to forcing the door open
and admitted that she grabbed her daughter's hair, starting the physical altercation.
The suspect denied having or using a knife. The officer observed blood on the floor
of the house and a small amount of blood on the victim's right fingers. The injuries
appeared consistent with a paper cut and did not appear to have been caused by a
knife. JFRD Rescue evaluated the injury, but did not treat or transport the victim.
The officer observed that the lock on the bedroom door was broken and appeared to
have been forced. Evidence Tech photographed the scene and injury. The victim's 2
children were present during the altercation so DCF was notified. The victim was
given all appropriate domestic violence paperwork and the suspect was arrested and
transported to the PTDF.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAIN an officer was
dispatched to the 1400 block of Myrtle Ave. N. to
investigate an unverified 911 call. Upon his arrival, he
mat with the victim Ms. NC, who stated that while she
was at her residence in the 1300 block of 5th St. the
defendant Mr. SM beat her up by punching her in the
face, throwing her on the ground and kicking her in
her side and back. The officer observed blood coming
from the victim's mouth and scratches on her neck,
face, and hands. The victim's right eye was also
swollen and she had a bump on her forehead. There was also blood on her clothes
and hands. The victim had a very strong odor of alcohol coming from her. While
gathering information from the victim, the officer observed the defendant walking
in the area. The officer made contact with the defendant and took him into custody.
The defendant had small blood spots on his shirt. Post miranda, the defendant stat-
ed that he and the victim were arguing and that the victim attempted to stab him with
a sharp object. He stated that the told her to leave the residence and when she
refused, he punched her causing the injuries. The defendant is the primary aggres-
sor in this situation. There is a threat of further violence against the victim if the
defendant stayed at the residence. The victim was advised of a safe place, but she
declined because she had a place to stay. The defendant was arrested, searched, and
transported to the PTDF.
ANOTHER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE .
CASE BETWEEN AN OFFSPRING an
officer was dispatched to the 8000 block of '
Atlantic Blvd. in reference to a domestic dis-
turbance. Upon his arrival, he met with the
victim Ms. JM. The investigation revealed
that the victim and suspect Mr. DM, (victim's
son) were involved in an altercation at the vic- -
tim's apartment. The victim allowed the sus- ,I
pect to stay the night due to the cold weather
and because he just got out of jail and didn't
have a place to stay. This was in violation of the injunction for protection the victim
has against the suspect prohibiting contact and violence. The suspect refused to
leave and attempted to force his way back into the residence. The suspect scratched
the victim on both wrist and the victim bit the suspect on the left hand to defend her-
self and keep him from entering the residence. This caused swelling and bruising.
The suspect was advised of his rights and was placed under arrest. The victim
refused to give a written statement and declined having photographs taken of her
injuries. The victim also declined being notified when the suspect gets out.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE an officer was dispatched to the 2,300 block of 1st St.
W. regarding battery domestic. Upon his arrival, he met with the victim Ms. F, who
stated that she and her boyfriend have been living together for 1 month, but do not
share any children. Ms. F stated that her boyfriend became very angry because she
wanted to go out with her female friends. Ms. F also stated that her boyfriend then
hit her on the right eye. During the investigation, the officer observed redness and
bruising to the right eye of Ms. F. He made contact with the suspect in the 1300
block of Prince St. The suspect was read his rights and transported to the PTDF for

drug problem on the property. the management has received several complaints
from tenants regarding individuals selling and using narcotics on the property. The
officer approached the individuals and smelt the odor of burnt marijuana in the
immediate area. He attempted to make contact with the individuals and the suspect.
As he approached, the suspect observed him in his
,-patrol uniform and immediately ran in the oppo-
S 'site direction. He identified himself as a police
'officer and gave the suspect several verbal com-
mands to stop running. The suspect refused to
cooperate with all verbal commands and contin-
ued to run. After a brief foot pursuit, the suspect
was taken into custody in the 2800 block of
Justina Rd. After post miranda, the officer asked
::- wlhy did he run, ,nd he said he didn't know.
