found lying on the ground
outside of his home in the
1300 block of Prince

According to witness,
at least two unknown male
suspects entered Bland's

home via a screened patio

inside, they kicked in the
bedroom doors to the vic-
tim's and his roommate's
The suspects were
armed with handguns and
immediately tried to rob
the victims. Another man
and two women were in
the house but managed to
escape. Bland began to

fight with one of the sus-
pects and was subsequent-
ly shot during this resist-
ance. He was able to leave
the house but was found
dead of a bullet wound in
his back yard.

To Be Equal
Civil Rights Purge at Justice?
Marc H. Morial, President and Chief Executive
National Urban League.

Is there a purge of
career attorneys at the
U.S. Department of
Justice who do not meet a
conservative "litmus test"
on civil rights enforce-
Has the department's
Civil Rights Division, a
cornerstone of the federal
government's protection
of the advances in civil
rights for the past half-
century now turned its
back on employment dis-
crimination cases involv-
ing women and people of
color? Has it also decided
to turn away from cases
involved alleged voting-
rights violations?
These are among the
urgent questions raised by
a front-page news story in
Sunday's Washington
The story said that,
according to some veteran
attorneys who've left the
department in the last year
and others in the civil
rights community, the
answer is yes. The news
article cited an essay by an
attorney who spent 24
years in the division
before lea\ ing this year.

sion's productivity has
suffered, and the pace of
civil rights enforcement
has slowed."
William R. Yeomans'
essay, "An Uncivil
Division," in the
September/October issue
of Legal Affairs magazine,
painted a dispiriting pic-
ture of a corps of career
attorneys, many with long
years of service handling
civil rights cases, shunted
aside by the newly-
installed political
appointees who comprise
the division's top deci-
sion-making layer.
These political
appointees lack "experi-
ence in enforcement of the
nation's civil rights laws
or in managing a large
organization," Yeomans
claims at one point, but
they have forced out
"many longtime, career
leaders of the division and
personnel practices have
been revamped ... to
replace them with attor-
neys selected because of

charged the

division's new politically-
appointed leadership
implemented "a policy
determination to reduce
the vigor of civil rights
enforcement. Many attor-
neys have expressed frus-
tration at delays in getting
work approved at the
political level, and they
complain that they are not
permitted to pursue
investigations or [file
court cases] that would
have been undertaken in
the past."
Such Congressional
critics as Democratic
Senators Richard J.
Durbin, of Illinois, and
Edward M. Kennedy, of
Massachusetts, have
argued that the civil rights
division's enforcement of
civil rights during the
Bush Administration has
been "negligent" and

Justice Department
officials strongly deny the
, assertions of an ideologi-
callydriven turning away
from civil rights enforce-
ment. They cite statistics
which show that the divi-
sion's 13-percent attrition
rate: during the Bush
Administration is only
slightly higher than the
11-percent fate of the last
five years of the Clinton
Further, they contend

that while the division has
devoted more resources to
human-trafficking and
deportation cases than in
the past, it "has continued
the robust and vigorous-
enforcement of civil rights:'

New Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church Celebrates 86 Years The Church Directory

S .i". ..-.- ....-.. 1 "Come and Worship With Us"

Pastor Joe Calhoun and his wife, Vivian.

Rev. Carl Odom, pastor of Exodus Baptist Church in
Jacksonville was the Anniversary speaker. Rev. Odom
is joined by his wife and daughter.

Chairman of the banquet committee, Oretha Curry
Brooks with her sister, Cynthia Curry.
After a week of prayer preparing for the mission of find-
ing a new pastor since Pastor Joe Calhoun is retiring after
fifty years, New Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church
kicked off their celebration with a banquet at the Holiday
Inn, Airport. Rev. Moses H. Johnson, Jr., Pastor ol

anniversary soul touching Sunday sermon was provided by
Rev. Carl Odom, pastor of Exodus Baptist Church,
Members and friends of New Bethlehem stayed on their
feet applauding during each occasion that included services,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The sermons and
the food were truly enjoyable. But one can't forget the beau-
tiful dance sermon performed by the Women's Mission of
New Bethlehem. The church is now preparing for the retire-
ment of their beloved pastor Joe Calhoun. Pastor Calhoun
said, he is "retiring as a. pastor, not as a preacher," and
encouraged his congregation to continue its growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who is in charge of making
the funeral arrangements? Is it the
executor of the estate?
A. Being named executor, in
and of itself, does not necessarily
confer the right to control a
deceased person's funeral. The
individual's spouse, or certain
relatives, according to their
"blood" relationship with the
deceased, have the legal right to
make the funeral arrangements,
unless the deceased has left other
written directions. (Being named
in a will to handle the person's
funeral could be considered
"other directions" by the court.)
However, since the executor
of an estate usually pays for the
funeral, the individual with the
VI 1'

legal right to make the arrange-
ments (if he or she is not the
executor) may wish to confer
with or allow the executor to
make the funeral arrangements.
Q. What happens if a'major-
ity of the children of the
deceased agree to pay for the
funeral, but cannot agree on the
A. If there is no way an
agreement can be reached, a
court may have to appoint one of
the children to be in charge of the
funeral arrangements.

"There's Always Something
Happening On The First Coast"
Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations
Founded in 2003 with a desire to share its culture and
heritage with the First Coast community fostering under-
standing and good relations among different ethnic and
racial groups that co-exist on the First Coast, the Council
of Spanish Speaking Organizations, Inc. (El Concilio)
celebrated recently the contributions of Puerto Rican and
the entire Latin community as a whole in Florida and the
First Coast. Led by the organizations president and
founder Mrs. Nila Alejandro the inaugural celebration
included an Awards Dinner and a Puerto Rican parade.
Mayor John Peyton proclaimed the first week of
November 2005 as Puerto Rican Week commending the
council for its work.
"The first edition of the Parade is dedicated to the town
of Ponce and Dr. Sylvia Caceres, Regional Director of the
Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration, and to out
children and youth. Our slogan, Educating our children
and youth we will build a world full of lave and fraterni-
ty: Let's spread seeds of coexistence", stated Mrs.
We joined the organization at their Awards Dinner
honoring leaders in the Spanish speaking community held
at Cafe' Bolero. It was an evening of pride for the group's
heritage, delicious cuisine (so wonderful we found our-
selves going back to the caf6 the following week for
another delectable mea) and dancing, dancing and more
dancing. Caf6 Bolero was hot! Honored were: First Coast
physician Dr. Miguel Rosado, Officer Samuel
Rodriguez, Michelle M. Sagarra Rovira, Rocelia
Roman de Gonzalez, Mercedes Buitrago Guzman, Dr.
Sylvia T. Caceres and Wilfredo Gonzalez.
The parade the following day displayed the Hispanic
arts and culture with the dress costumes, the music, folk-
loric dance and performances along with recognizing
organizations that had greatly contributed to the First
Coast community. It was another opportunity in educat-
ing the First community on the many diverse cultures that
exist while encouraging the community to be involved.
The parade celebration culminated at Caf6 Bolero with
community music, arts and crafts and traditional food.
Kudos to El Concilio for hosting such a grand event!

STANFORD, Calif.---
High-achieving minority
students in racially integrat-
ed public schools are less
popular among their ethnic
peers and more isolated than
similar white students,
according to a new study by
Harvard economist Roland
G. Fryer, Jr. published in the
winter 2006 issue of Hoover
-Institution's Education Next.
The social stigma among
minorities who excel --
labeled "acting white" -- is
"a vexing reality within a
subset of American
schools," Fryer writes.

Kentucky Counties Vote To Take
Ten Commandments Case to Trial
Kentucky officials in McCreary and Pulaski Counties, in sep-
arate sessions, voted to continue to defend courthouse displays
that include the Ten Commandments. Both counties are prepared
to take their cases back to the United States Supreme Court. The
counties are represented by Liberty Counsel, a national litigation,
education and policy organization. On June 27, 2005, the
Supreme Court issued a ruling on the Ten Commandments. In
McCreary County v. AGLU of Kentucky, the Court ruled 5-4
against the display of the Ten Commandments in McCreary and
Pulaski Counties. There, the Commandments were part of the
"Foundations of American Law and Government" display. Justice
O'Connor sided with the 5-4 majority which ruled that the dis-
play had a religious purpose because of the history of a different
display prior to Liberty Counsel's involvement. On the same day,
the Court issued a 4-1-4 decision in the Texas case. The Texas
monument was upheld because it had been in place for 40 years
with no obvious religious purpose.

"Whatever its cause, it is
most prevalent in racially
integrated public schools.
It's less of a problem in the
private sector and in pre-
dominrantly black public
For ,black and Hispanic
students who attend private
school, Fryer found no evi-
dence of a trade-off between
popularity and achievement.
Similarly, in predominantly
black schools, there was no
evidence that getting good
grades adversely affected
students' popularity. In inte-
grated public schools, how-
ever, the price for those who
strive to succeed is high.
At low GPAs, there is lit-
tle difference among ethnic
groups in the relationship
between grades and popular-
ity, but when a student
achieves a 2.5 GPA (an even
mix of Bs and Cs), clear dif-
ferences start to emerge.
Beyond this level, Hispanic
students in particular lose
popularity at an alarming
As GPAs climb above
3.5, the experience of black
and white students diverges:
black students tend to have
fewer and fewer friends
while white students find
themselves moving to the

top of the popularity pyra-
mid. For Hispanic students
at the highest levels of
achievement, it is even more
discouraging. A Hispanic
student with a 4.0 GPA is the
least popular of all Hispanic
students, and Hispanic-
white differences are, the
most extreme.
For his research, Fryer
used data from the National
Longitudinal Study of
Adolescent Health
(Adhealth), which provide
information on the friend-
ship patterns of a nationally
representative sample of
more than 90,000 students,
from 175 schools in 80 com-
munities, who entered
grades 7 through 12 in the
1994 school year.
The Adhealth data freed
Fryer from relying on self-
reported indicators of popu-
larity that had been used in
previous studies.
Students in the Adhealth
study were asked to list up to
five of their closest male and
female friends. Fryer count-
ed how often each student's
name appeared on peers'
The more frequently a
peer was listed by others, the
more weight was assigned to
showing up on his or her list.

Although minority stu-
dents were not pefialized for
"acting white" in private
schools, Fryer did find that
high-achieving white stu-
dents were not as popular as
their lower-achieving peers.
The most popular white stu-
dents in private schools had
a GPA of roughly 2.0 (a C
These findings may help
explain why most studies of
academic achievement find
little or no benefit from
attending a private school
for white students, but quite
large benefits for African
In explaining his results,
*Fryer notes that groups with
lower achievement levels
are at risk of losing their
potentially more successful
members to the outside
Peer group pressures
help ensure the loyalty of
these potentially successful
members, who are forced to
weigh community ties
against academic success.
"In an achievement-
based society, there can be a
trade-off between doing well
and rejection by your peers
when you come from a tradi-
tionally low-achieving
group," Fryer points out.

we just chatted like two good friends who had not seen each other for a while. He thought
his daughters were over protective.
He thought segregation was unfair and did not benefit anybody. He is a Deacon at Second

Oh, yes, I still drive. No, he had not met Rosa Parks, but "Johnnie represented her once in

He was an only child. His parents really had high hopes for him, and he did not disap-
point them. He attended school about three months out of the year, but his Dad had home-
work for him every night via the old twilight dim lamps. He realized very early in his adult-

wearing a shirt and tie every day. So, the family moved West to California and the rest is

the courthouse door in the face of hundreds of thousands of disenfranchised citizens,"
Catherine Weiss, the Brennan Center for Justice lawyer for the Florida ex-felons, said

Their appeal asked if restrictions could be challenged under the 1965 Voting Rights Act,

B Young Rap Artist Goes From

Drugs To Determination

By Jaye Brummell

Kenneth Lewis Jr., another young
African American male with no hope,
once sat in a jail cell awaiting his trial; a
trial that would possibly give him a sen-
tence of 15 years to life and no chance for :. .
a future except behind bars in a cold jail
At a young age, Kenneth found himself ....
in a life of drugs, alcohol, and crime. He
decided at the age of 17 that his parent's
rules were not for him and that the street is
what he wanted, so the street is what he
Even after being raised in church and -.
given a firm foundation of religion from
his parents and the teachings of his Pastor, .
Kenneth strayed to a life of not only using
but also dealing crack cocaine. After a
night of dealing and using drugs, Kenneth .
was desperate for more. He had the
assumption that cocaine was just cocaine, ...,. ..
so he took a rock of crack cocaine and j..-,
crushed it up as fine as he could get it,
Snorted it, and became instantly hooked. '
Kenneth's life began to spend out of
control. With no money and his mind dete -
riorating from drugs, he decided to rob a
local Jacksonville International House of 4'--.
Pancakes. Authorities caught him in his
attempt of armed robbery ...
Instead of receiving the intended 15
years he received a one-year sentence for Kenneth Lewis, Jr.
attempted arm robbery. Kenneth spent that
year discovering the gift that dwelled deep
in his soul. That gift was writing lyrics that would save souls for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. For the first time
in years Kenneth reflected on the upbringing of his parents and the teachings of his pastor. He reflected and
accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and is now determined to touch the lives of as many people as he can through
his awesome music ministry as a gospel rap artist now known as BROKEN. His current record label, Lionlamb
w Records, and his booking management company, Glorify Entertainment Group Inc., both saw an incredible artist
with a unique gift that has and will affect hundreds if not thousands.
Kenneth has put his past behind him and his future as a top gospel rap artist is in front of him. His freshman
project on Lionlamb Records, entitled "Remember Me" is hardcore with the truth of street life yet outstanding y
and anointed with the Word of God. BROKEN has taken young audiences to another level of praise. Adults say
they have been tremendously blessed by this live performances as well as the CD of this awesome young gospel
rap artist. Broken comes as a \\ inss that there is hope for lthe hopeless and that a life of druLs can be destroy ed
7 ;through determination.

Local Designer Set To Rip Runway

At Jacksonville Fashion Fushion

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-The urban, unorthodox fashion collection based in Tallahassee, Fla., Untitled, Inc., will debut in its hometown of
Jacksonville, at Jacksonville Fashion Fusion, 8 p.m., Friday, November 25, at the Radisson Riverwalk Hotel.
This fashion extravaganza is being produced by Nokturnal Escape Entertainment, LLC and Jazzy Productions, Inc., and will be hosted by Miss
Black Florida 2005-2006, Ashiya Prince.
The face behind this eclectic ensemble exudes the edgy flavor of managing directors and designers, Michael Stallings and Shion Campbell, both
graduates of Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, and spokes model and business consultant, Robert Hays, of Milwaukee, Wis., who are
all Florida A & M University alumni.
Collectively, the fashion gurus have developed their undeniable talent -.
over the last three years as the official fashion couture, stylist-and designer" ,
for FAMU's Faces Modeling Troupe and homecoming festivities. '
Untitled was featured at the Super Bowl XXXVIII Fashion Show at
Plush night club and also awestruck the audience at the Black Men
Magazine fashion show last spring in Linden, N. J. Untitled's unique styles
are incomparable with any other collection and have been recognized as the
new standard in the fashion industry.
"The name derived from our peers in a way, meaning our styles are so
complex and ever changing that they can not be placed in just one catego-
ry," Campbell said. "Thus, the name "Untitled," and motto, 'there's no one .
style that can define us' speaks for itself."
Currently the collections can be purchased at retail stores, ADL Customs
and Empire, located at the Governor Square Mall, in Tallahassee.
However customized clothing is produced daily and available for home- "
delivery now. JFF, a new stimulating entertainment vehicle is taking
fashion and
night scene to
new heights by
introducing a
show of extreme

Clara White Mission's Gala

Mission friends, Brenda Roundtree, Khamil Ojoyo,
(a.k.a. Sir Spencer Cobb), 2005 12 Who Care recipient
and Pat Scanlin.

Shown here are Mark Lynn, Chairman, Clara White
Mission Board of Directors, Susan Adams Loyd, Vice
President & General Manager Fox 30 & 47 WTEV,
Ju'Coby Pittman-Peele, CEO/President.
By Marsha Dean Phelts

The Second Annual Gala of the Clara White Mission
was held at the grand and new Citi Cards Campus near
Bayard. The celebration was in recognition of the Mission's
101st Anniversary of service to the Jacksonville community
and the 128th Birthday of the founder, Dr. Eartha M. M.
In 1904 Clara White and her daughter Eartha began pro-
viding a meager meal from the garage of their home to feed
those in need. Their noble mission has become known as the
"Miracle on Ashley Street."
Annually 140,000 meals are served to the homeless and
disadvantaged in the downtown Jacksonville community
from the CWM.
Additional services include the School of Culinary Arts
Training (Operation Turning Point), Transitional Housing
Program, Drop-in Day Center, the CWM Historical Museum
and the Greater Expectations Youth Program.
To begin the gala the Jazz Band from the LaVilla School
of the Arts provided smooth sound. Guests milled around
the enormous dining room generously placing silent bids on
art works, gift certificates, gift baskets, pottery, porcelain,
entertainment packages, golf outings and so much more.
There were several items of autographed memorabilia that
included a baseball signed by Reggie Jackson.
Angela Spears the popular Anchorwoman for WTLV
served as Mistress of Ceremony. Ms. Spears moved the pro-
gram from its festive beginning to the celebrated ending-
leaving guest wondering how the joyous occasion concluded
before anyone tired of the activities.
The Guest speaker was Susan Adams Loyd, the 2005
Florida Times-Union's Eve Award winner and Vice President

Community and church
leaders and advocates who
comprise the Community
Leaders Forum of "2005
Super Weekend:
Jacksonville" issued a call to
action, urging local
Jacksonville residents to
participate in the heart
health screenings so they.
can learn their risk of heart
disease and find out how to
manage that risk.
The ABC's trained health
specialists will conduct free
heart health screenings to be
held on Saturday, November
19, at The Hyatt
Jacksonville Riverfront, in
,Jacksonville, from, 10:00
a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The ABC expects to
reach 1,000 people during "
2005 Super Weekend," via
the heart health education
and screenings to take place
on Saturday and via heart-
health messages that local
healthcare professionals will
deliver in 19 area churches
on Sunday, November 20.
"We are honored that
Jacksonville and Duval
County have declared
'November 19-20: 2005 Su-
per Weekend' to help raise
awareness of the devastating
toll of heart disease among
African-Americans," noted
Paul Underwood, MD, pres-
ident of the ABC. "By part-
nering with the 2005 Super
Weekend Community
Leaders Forum in
Jacksonville, we are able to
reach those most affected by
healthcare disparities. For
over 30 years, the ABC has
pioneered initiatives to
reach African-Americans
locally and nationwide with
heart health education.
Simply put, our survival
depends on such education."
At least 500 people are
expected to participate in
2005 Super Weekend heart
health screenings. In addi-
tion to the free screenings
for blood pressure, choles-
terol, glucose, weight, and
boy mass ikdex, residents
from across Jacksonville

and Duval County will learn

ing the community about the
risk factors," says Dr. B.
Waine Kong, ABC Chief
Executive Officer. "We
know that African-
Americans experience fewer
years of healthy life and
have a total life expectancy
shorter than any other racial
or ethnic group in America.
We are vested now more
than ever in building health-

Thomas Charles Armstrong has had trouble with the law
but no felonies.

Thomas Charles Armstron
Hospital after receiving seve
with Denver policemen Frida

Twenty-five years ago,
Earl Flanders Armstrong, at
36, was shot in the head and
back by a police officer near
Lamar, Colorado..
Earl was born and raised
in Brunswick and was com-
ing to his hometown when
the shooting occurred. Earl
had a mental condition,
scuffled with the police
deputy in 1980, and a few
days later, still hiding in the
field, according to the fami-
ly, Earl was shot five times
in his back. The family said
Earl did not have a weapon.
The beating occurred
Friday, one week prior to
Thomas Charles Armstrong,
37, scheduled visit to come
to Brunswick for his grand-
mother's 80th birthday and
remain for the family's
annual Thanksgiving dinner.
On Friday Thomas' trou-
bles started when he was
involved in a struggle with a
Denver policeman and the
6-foot, 160 pound male
received major injuries.
The Denver Police
Department, who knows the
Armstrong family very well
since one of their biggest
critics is Earl A. Armstrong,
Thomas' brother. Earl said
Thomas was 12-years-old
when his father was killed
and may feel strong resent-
ment toward law enforce-
ment, perhaps because of his
father's death, but, he would
have never attempted to
fight the police, though he
may have attempted to run.
According to sources,
Thomas stopped breathing
shortly after the officers sub-
dued him and required car-
diopulmonary resuscitation.
One witness told the family
lawyer, Walter Gerash, a
Denver criminal attorney
who is known to represent
plaintiffs in high-profile
lawsuits, that an officer had

but his brother and attorney
said they will get to the bot-

The Denver CopWatch
group issued a statement
Sunday saying that
Armstrong's injuries were
the result of excessive force
and held a community meet-
ing Monday regarding the
matter. .

The Grandmother, Ms.

manner. Her birthday is

JU Dolphins Basketball Begins New Era Against FSU

The Jacksonville
University men's basketball
team will unveil a new style
of play
and a new

when they
play host
to the
Warren S tat e
Seminoles in Veterans
Memorial Arena at 7:00
p.m. on Saturday, November
Cliff Warren, 37, makes
his debut at the helm for the
Warren became the 15th
head coach in the 57-year
history of JU basketball
when athletic director Alan
Verlander tabbed him as
Hugh Durham's successor
on April 20.
In 11 seasons as an assis-
tant coach, including the last
five at Georgia Tech, Warren
has been part of programs
which have earned eight

postseason berths, including
five NCAA Tournament bids
and three NIT berths.
This is the beginning of a
new era in Jacksonville
University athletics," said
Verlander, who was named
JU's seventh Director of
Athletics on March 8. "Cliff
Warren is a winner on and
off the basketball court. He
sees the value of playing
basketball, but he also sees
the value of a great educa-
tion. Cliff is also a commu-
nity builder whose level of
enthusiasm will be conta-
gious throughout
The front court will be
led by small forward
Antonio Cool, the top
returning scorer from last
year's team. Cool, a 6-4 sen-
ior, averaged 11.3 points per
game and hit almost 48. per-.
cent of his shots from the
floor. Another of the top 3-
point threats in the confer-
ence, Cool led the team in 3-
point field goal percentage

hitting 40.5 percent from
behind the arc.
The starting spot at
power forward belongs to
Mario Brown entering pre-
season practice. Brown, a 6-
7 senior, was one of the top
defensive players in the con-
ference a year ago, racking
up 53 blocked shots.
There is depth in the
front court for the Dolphins
and it is a group of talented
youngsters. Marcus Allen
and Phillip Okonma will be
the first two players off the
bench for JU in the front
"I hope we will surprise
people this year with the
improvement this group has
made," Warren said.
"What they lack in talent,
they make up for in effort,
and they give everything
they have every time they
step onto the floor. Being
veterans, they have a lot of
confidence in themselves,
which is spreading through-
out the team."

ing. The vehicle that left the scene, driven by a 46-year-
old female (suspect), was the vehicle at fault. The offi-
cer located the suspect vehicle about three quarters of a
mile south of where the crash occurred. One person in
the crash had to be transported by rescue #22 to the hos-
pital. A witness told the police officer that the driver of
the vehicle was a black female, who had left the scene.
A check with ID 'and records revealed that the suspect
vehicle came back registered to a residence in the 5100
block of Collins Road. The police officer went to the
listed address, and made contact with the suspect. The
police officer could see that the suspect had been drink-
ing. The police officer explained everything to her
while they were at her home and read her her rights.
The office asked the suspect if she knew where her
vehicle was, and she told him that she let someone use
it. The officer could see that she was not being truthful.
The police officer asked her why she did not stay at the
scene, and she told the officer that she was afraid. The
officer then asked the suspect how she got home. She
told the officer that she walked. The police officer
arrested the suspect. A check of the suspect's driver's
license showed that she was a habitual traffic violator.
Her license was suspended for 14 counts of traffic vio-
lations from'2/2/05 to 4/25/05. The suspect was trans-
ported to jail and charged with a felony for leaving the
scene of an accident, hit and run, and careless driving,
while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage.
WITH INTENT TO SELL-On Saturday, November
12, 2005 at 7:10 p.m. three, undercover police officers
were conducting a buy bust operation at the 7800 Block
of New Kings Road. The undercover detectives
engaged the 56-year-old male (suspect) in a conversa-
tion in reference to buying $60.00 worth of crack
cocaine. The suspect said no and walked away from the
undercover vehicle. A few minutes later the suspect
returned to the vehicle and asked one of detectives if he
still wanted the $60.00 worth of crack cocaine. The
detective said yes and the suspect showed him a baggie
of crack cocaine. The detective handed the suspect
$60.00 of JSO funds, and the suspect handed the detec-
tive a baggie of crack cocaine. The suspect walked away
and the take down signal was given. The take down
team apprehended the suspect. One of the undercover
detectives found the buy money in the ditch floating in
the water were the suspect threw it. The suspect was
read his rights, arrested, transported to jail, and charged
with a felony.
Saturday, November 12, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. a 36 -year -
old female (suspect) was baker acted and arrested by a
police officer for criminal mischief. She was released

from Shands Hospital and transported to jail. As she was
being admitted into jail, a female corrections officer
searched her. The corrections officer located a crack
pipe in the front of the suspect pants around her crouch
area. Her property was also searched, and a piece of
crack cocaine, found balled up in a piece of paper in the
suspect's purse, field tested positive for crack cocaine.
The crack cocaine and pipe were placed in the property
room. The suspect was arrested and charged with a

Jacksonville Man Dies

In ATV Crash In Clay County
Clay County Sheriffs Office Traffic Homicide
Investigators were called to the scene of a crash involving an
ATV (all terrain vehicle) at 7am in the 5900 block of Long
Branch Road in Northwest Clay County.
A hunter who lives in the area drove by the spot and saw
the victim, 33-year-old Michael D. Key of Jacksonville,
slumped over the ATV which was against a tree a short dis-
tance from the roadway.
The hunter immediately called for help and paramedics
and investigators were dispatched to the scene.
So far, investigators have determined that Key attended
a large party at a home in the area and that numerous people
were riding ATV's through the woods near the home.
The CCSO Communications Center received complaint
calls regarding the noise and sent a deputy to the area around
1:30 a.m.
No ATV riders were located at that time. Investigators
believe Key crashed his ATV into the tree between 2-3am
and suspect that his death was instantaneous.
No one at the party noted that he was missing until early
the following morning when word spread of the crash.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing and, as
with all traffic homicide investigations, a full incident report
will not be available for several weeks pending the return of
toxicology results.
Officials cannot say at this time if alcohol played a role
in the crash. There were no witnesses to the crash itself.
Key's next-of-kin was notified of his death immediately.

Dancers, Employers End Spanking Case 41
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Three dancers and two
employees at a Jacksonville strip club have pleaded
guilty to disorderly conduct, ending a case in which a
patron filed a complaint after he was spanked with a big
wooden paddle on his birthday. Pulaski County District
Judge Wayne Gruber dismissed second-degree battery
charges against the dancers. They were charged with the
two employees after a trucker from Bald Knob was
spanked and bruised.
Charlene Smith, 23, of Ward, Lisa Nolen, 23, of
Cabot, and Kelly Eslick, 21, of Jacksonville, were fined
$100 each during the Monday hearing, along with
Sensations Night Club employees James Daugherty, 31,
of Jacksonville, and Dena Mitchell, 30, of Sherwood.
Gruber ordered the paddle destroyed so it is not sold for
a profit. Prosecutors expressed concern that the paddle
could be sold in an online auction. The wooden paddle
was 18 inches long, drilled with holes and was inscribed
with the stage name of the woman who wielded it,
"Velvet." Officials said Eslick spanked the trucker, Keith
Lowery, 31.
