Last week we had a powerful presentation by former Ukrainian Press Secretary Natalia Solyeva where she discussed the current situation in Ukraine. She answered some questions such as why Russia invaded in the first place, and who is President Zelenskyy. She shared some disturbing pictures and video footage that you won’t see on the evening news. The things that are happening to the civilian population are horrific. There was some discussion on why the U.S. should spend billions on funding as to what the benefits each side has to eventually winning the conflict.
This week we host Mike Williams, President of AGX Freight. We have a Meet-A-Member at Adam Canni’s office, PW Graphic Solutions, this Thursday, May 19th. It will be from 5:30-7:30 at 4656 Collins Road, Jax, 32244. I will see you there.

Last week we welcomed our State Attorney Melissa Nelson. Miss Nelson brought us up to date with the Covid catch-up the court system is currently dealing with in reference to the backlog it has caused. Nelson touched on the most recent violent crime that has happened locally and how the office follows up by using tools like “shot spotter” in following up on shootings and collecting evidence like spent brass (bullet casings) and linking the firearms used in other crimes. Not every shooting has a victim but sadly the community is not always forthcoming with information after some of them.
This week we have Ukrainian Press Secretary Natalia Solyeva who will be talking to us about the current conflict. We have a Meet-A-Member at Adam Canni’s office, PW Graphic Solutions, Thursday, May 19th. It will be held 5:30-7:30 at 4656 Collins Road, Jax, 32244. I hope to see everyone this week. Happy Mother’s Day!
