    Author William Turner Debuts Murder In Our Midst

    in Books

    William Turner spent his formative years in New England. He was educated in the private, parochial school system, and is presently retired from State Service (State of California), as a Supervisor.


    He has one son (Ontario), and three grandchildren. His grandson is serving in the United States Air Force. His daugher in law Bridgette, is a practicing Pediatrician. William has apsired, so long ago, to be a priest, but felt at the time, he had not been exposed enough to life to walk away and close the monastery door. His subsequent exposure to life sullied him beyond any aspiration to the priesthood. 


    William now lives in Lancaster, California, spending much of his time doing penance, reflecting on his countless errors in judgment. William's penchant for writing mysteries stems from his exposure to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories and those of Agatha Christie. He mentor was Sister Anges Bernard - his high school English teacher.

    Saving Baby Madi: 14 Things Courts Ignored While Turning Her Over to Her Abuser

    in Current Events

    Between 2003 and 2011 little Madi was sentenced by the Family Court of Columbia County Arkansas to unsupervised visitation with her father whom was a substantiated sexual abuser in Louisiana. The abusers father had served as a Judge on the Arkansas Supreme Court and worked as an attorney. Business connections with members of the Arkansas Attorney General's Office protected the abuser from prosecution. At the onset of forced visitation with her father Madi was screaming, crying and clinging to her mother's leg to keep from being passed over to her father. In Mar.'06 the child was taken to the pediatrician for chaffing and severe rashes in her “private area”. The father owned several well known bars that had the reputation for serving drinks with date rape drugs to young women who attended the bars. The health department was involved in investigations as was the drug task force of the FBI. The bars were shut down for “non payment of sales tax”. The perpetrator was caught with a counterfeiting plate, and never prosecuted. There was hard evidence of drug trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of ography. The perpetrator continued as untouchable – even admitting to all criminal actions.


    Columbia County authorities stated to the mother of an ex wife of the perpetrator who was fighting for custody of her son, “We will bankrupt you if you keep seeking court action against our client”. The mother in question attempted to pursue custody of her child based on ample evidence. She lost her home, her personal finances and her child. The perpetrator was given custody of the child, and was able to leave the state of Arkanasas to move to Missouri, where he is supposed to be on a sex offenders list, but isn't. Madi's mother and grandmother joined forces along with other unlikely forces to protect Madi as much as possible from abuse during forced visitation with her father.

    Spiritual author, Dr David Davin talks about the state of health care in the USA

    in Spirituality

    Born 10 weeks premature in 1952, Dr. Davin entered the world with a twin, both in profound respiratory distress. His parents were advised to find a funeral home and he and his twin brother were placed in 100% oxygen for 10 weeks. He was baptized "In Periculo Mortis," in danger of death, but, as he likes to say, he and his brother "fooled the bastards" and David went on to admire the pediatrician that frequently cared for him as a young boy, the only person worthy of admiration in the dark, blue collar, white ghetto in which he was raised, most notable for its alcoholism, bigotry, and domestic violence.


    At around the age of ten he came upon a crowd of people three deep standing in the street around what he soon realized was the dying, bleeding victim of a multiple stabbing. People did nothing but wait for an ambulance as the man slowly died. Watching the life leave the man and spill onto the street with every beat of his heart, young Davin tried to work his way through the forest of grown up legs that repeatedly stopped the young boy who had taken off his belt to use as a tourniquet. The grown ups refused to let the child through, even though they just stood around helplessly. The man died before the ambulance arrived. David knew that if they would just get out of his way he could help the man live. Now, some fifty years later, he is still asking the endless crowd to get out of his way so he can do what he knows he must do.
