______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dylan Broughmanm, Jacksonville, Floriduh Florida teen charged with murder of his grandmother The scene that greeted police officers Oct. 10 when they arrived at a domestic disturbance call in East Arlington’s Cobblestone neighborhood was one of mayhem, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report. Joyce Ann Courson, 69, was sitting in a puddle of blood in the hallway, her right eye split open as fist- and foot-sized holes filled nearby walls in the home on Ashridge Drive, the report said. It all started with her hiding her grandson’s beer, she was able to tell police. Courson’s 18-year-old grandson has been charged with murder after she succumbed to her injuries a week after being slugged repeatedly, according to police. Dylan Nicholas Broughman had initially been charged with aggravated battery, but the murder charge was added Thursday after the Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide. Tracey Lynn Broughman, his mother, was briefly in tears Thursday morning after learning of the new charge as she stood in a home that bears the scars of the attack. Calling her mother “my best friend” who took care of them, she looked at holes kicked or punched in three walls near the kitchen and said she felt overwhelmed. “I am sick for the loss of my mother. I am sick for the loss of my son. I don’t feel he deserves to go to prison. I don’t feel in my heart that he meant to do this to the severity that he did,” Broughman said. The initial incident occurred just before 8 a.m. Oct. 10, according to the arrest report. Broughman was in the shower when Courson confiscated his beer. Her grandson became enraged when he couldn’t find his beer and began yelling, “It’s all your fault, everything is your fault!” she told police. From her hospital bed, Courson told them her grandson caved in chunks of the walls in her house and shoved her to the floor as he followed her into a hallway, the report said. That’s when he held her down and punched her in the face with his fist over and over again, then started kicking her. Dillon Ross, a 22-year-old roommate, said he had just gone to bed after his night job when he heard the argument, then some banging. He said the grandmother and grandson sometimes argued in the mornings, so he stayed out of it at first. “She took the beer and he just flipped out and I guess she wouldn’t tell him where she put it, so he started punching holes in the wall, then destroying the house pretty much and then blaming her,” Ross said. “I didn’t think anything of it until I heard this ridiculous crash. That’s when it was like this turned into something crazy. After the crash, I heard the grandmother screaming for help.” Ross said he ran into the foyer and found Courson on the floor, and the 18-year-old was gone. Officers searching the area found Broughman walking nearby on Kernan Boulevard and took him into custody. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Dorothy Re: phoney VISA alert Dear Webby, You might want to advise of the latest VISA scam in email.

Daily tip from Recipe: Sausage and Cabbage Stir-Fry By Sandy [135 Posts] Ingredients: 1 cup noodles uncooked 3/4 lb Polish sausage sliced 8 cups cabbage coarsely chopped 1 small onion 1 apple grated 1/2 tsp. caraway seed 1 Tbsp. brown sugar 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar 1/2 tsp. salt Directions: Cook noodles, drain and set aside. Cook sausage until brown. Remove from skillet. Add to the skillet the cabbage, onion, apple, caraway seed cooking until the cabbage is tender, about 7-10 minutes. Add brown sugar, vinegar and salt. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Add sausage and noodles cooking until everything is hot. Source: friend By Sandy from Graettinger, IA Smoked farmer sausage works fine too, more taste, less fat. I save time by cubing an apple or two, half of a sugar cube size. Makes interesting tasty tidbits. Without the noodles, it makes a great veggie side dish. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ A woman goes to the police station to report that her husband was missing. "Can you give me a description of him?" asked the officer. "He's short and bald and skinny and wrinkled and wears dentures," answered the woman. "Come to think of it, most of him was missing before he was...." ____________________________________________________ Catholic school test. Kids were asked questions about the Bible. Their answers apparently have not been retouched or corrected. 1. In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off. 2. Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which the animals come on it in pears. 3. Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night. 4. The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals. 5. Samson was a strongman who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah. 6. Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles. 7. Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread without any ingredients. 8. The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten amendments. 9. The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple. 10. The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery. 11. Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol. 12. The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him. 13. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought the Finklesteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. 14. Solomon, one of David's sons, slept with 300 wives and 700 porcupines. 15. When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the Magna Carta. 16. When the three wise guys from the east side arrived, they found Jesus with the manager. 17. Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption. 18. St. John the blacksmith dumped water on his head. 19. Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others before they do one to you. He also explained, a man doth not live by sweat alone. 20. It was a miracle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance. 21. The people who followed the lord were called the 12 debacles. 22. The epistles were the wives of the apostles. 23. One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan. 24. St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage. 25. Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony. ____________________________________________________
