Sac State, Partners Develop Family Justice Center
By: Craig Koscho - www.CSUS.edu

A new Family Justice Center being developed by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office and Sacramento State’s College of Health and Human Services, with a number of public and private agencies and organizations that serve victims of family violence, will further enhance the University’s commitment to helping the community.

The center will provide comprehensive support services for those who are victims/survivors of domestic violence, according to District Attorney Jan Scully.

While the community will be the center’s primary beneficiary, Sacramento State instructors and students also will benefit through opportunities for faculty research, student internships and community service.

Remembering the Tragic Murder of Kim Baucom
By Christian Kallen - The Argus-Courier

On a Sunday afternoon just two years ago, 43-year-old school teacher Kim Baucom Conover was fatally shot on Keller Street, while her divorce lawyer watched in horror. Moments later her assailant — and husband — Kevin Conover, 41, put the gun to his own head and pulled the trigger again. Both died before the day was over.

“There was a huge commotion — everyone was trying to figure out what had just happened,” remembered Supervisor David Rabbitt, who had just come out of the nearby Petaluma Market to find a flurry of police cars arriving at the scene.

Letter: Move Family Justice Center to Mercy

By Janet Lockwood - Cincinnati.com


Colerain’s Family Justice Center sounds like a nice service, but the location, cost and overall responsibility should change.

Currently, Colerain Township handles the center located at the Groesbeck police station. People from throughout the entire area – well beyond Colerain’s jurisdiction – are served by the center.

The financial responsibility should be handled on a countywide basis and no longer just a Colerain Township cost.

The empty Mercy Hospital on Kipling Avenue is being considered for several Hamilton County agencies. Mercy is a large building with generous parking. The location is well known throughout the area and would be a more convenient site for the center.
