Lake Apopka Natural Gas District Thanks Outgoing Directors

first_img Mama Mia Samuel Davis, General Manager and CEO of The Lake Apopka Natural Gas District thanked Bill Arrowsmith and Billie Dean for their service at the end of yesterday’s Board Meeting.  Each was given a plaque commemorating their service.Arrowsmith had served on the LANGD Board for four years.  Dean had served for two years.  Both were removed from the LANGD board by action initiated by Apopka’s Mayor, Joseph Kilsheimer and ratified by the Apopka City Council with a 3-2 vote at the May 18, 2016, Apopka City Council meeting.Kilsheimer had announced his intention to replace Arrowsmith and Dean with Diane Velazquez and himself during the May 4, 2016, Apopka City Council meeting.At yesterday’s meeting there was a short discussion as to the effective date of the City Council’s decision.  Was Monday’s Board meeting to be Arrowsmith and Dean’s last meeting or Kilsheimer and Velazquez’s first meeting?In the end it was decided that Arrowsmith and Dean were no longer board members and that Kilsheimer and Velazquez were the official representatives from Apopka.

UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 It is getting a little too darn old everytime I attend the city council meetings, and I feel like I am sitting at an fundraising auction instead of a city council meeting! Do I hear this $$$ amount for this group, or I challenge everyone to give this $$$$ amount to this other group. This last time with taxpayer’s discretionary funds, given to the commissioners to do whatever with! And if it isn’t that same old theme of giving money to this group and that group, or giving our assets away, then the latest is trying to turn Apopka into New Yawk City. Ok, with the boy scout’s project, that I give a thumb’s up to, but I don’t care to hear no more New Yawk City stuff. Enough already. This is Apopka, Florida, not New Yawk City. What’s next? Billy Joel at the Old Florida Festival? The Rocketts? Alicia Keys singing New Yawk State of Mind? This is Apopka, Florida, begins with an A and ends with an A……not begins with NY and ends with NY!!!!!! Way, way to much self=bragging, horn tootin’ and same old power struggling and bickering within the council, and it is really unbecoming, and that is why nothing is getting accomplished in our city but arguing.

Martin Luther King Jr. – A life unfinished

first_img Please enter your comment! Note – The Apopka MLK Parade begins at 2PM this afternoon. It starts at the Apopka Community Center/VFW Building at 519 South Central Avenue and ends at the John Bridges Center at 445 West 13th Street.Martin Luther King Jr. never saw the age of 40, but he lived a life that touched many and inspired a nation. His legacy will live eternally.At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his “I Have a Dream” speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize.Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speaking. (Photo by Julian Wasser//Time Life Pictures/Getty Images).At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope that continues today.Any number of historic moments in the civil rights struggle have been used to identify Martin Luther King, Jr. — prime mover of the Montgomery bus boycott, keynote speaker at the March on Washington, youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate. But in retrospect, single events are less important than the fact that King, and his policy of nonviolent protest, was the dominant force in the civil-rights movement during its decade of greatest achievement, from 1957 to 1968.King was born Michael Luther King in Atlanta on Jan. 15, 1929 — one of the three children of Martin Luther King Sr., pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, and Alberta (Williams) King, a former schoolteacher. (He was renamed “Martin” when he was about 6 years old.)A national hero and a civil-rights figure of growing importance, King summoned together a number of black leaders in 1957 and laid the groundwork for the organization now known as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). King was elected its president, and he soon began helping other communities organize their own protests against discrimination.Police used dogs to quell civil unrest in Birmingham, Ala., on May 3, 1963. Birmingham’s police commissioner “Bull” Connor also allowed fire hoses to be turned on young civil rights demonstrators. These measures set off a backlash of sentiment that rejuvenated the flagging civil rights movement. (Bill Hudson / The Associated Press)Three years later, King’s nonviolent tactics were put to their most severe test in Birmingham, during a mass protest for fair hiring practices and the desegregation of department-store facilities. Police brutality used against the marchers dramatized the plight of blacks to the nation at large, with enormous impact. King was arrested, but his voice was not silenced: He wrote the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” to refute his critics.Later that year King was a principal speaker at the historic March on Washington, where he delivered one of the most passionate addresses of his career. Time magazine designated him as its Person of the Year for 1963. A few months later he was named the recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. When he returned from Norway, where he had gone to accept the award, King took on new challenges. In Selma, Ala., he led a voter-registration campaign that ended in the Selma-to-Montgomery Freedom March. King next brought his crusade to Chicago, where he launched programs to rehabilitate the slums and provide housing.In the North, however, King soon discovered that young and angry blacks cared little for his preaching and even less for his pleas for peaceful protest. Their disenchantment was one of the reasons he rallied behind a new cause: the war in Vietnam.Although he was trying to create a new coalition based on equal support for peace and civil rights, it caused an immediate rift. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) saw King’s shift of emphasis as “a serious tactical mistake.” The Urban League warned that the “limited resources” of the civil-rights movement would be spread too thin.But he never got back to his poverty plans. Death came for King on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel just off Beale Street in Memphis. While standing outside with Jesse Jackson and Ralph Abernathy, King was shot in the neck by a rifle bullet. His death caused a wave of violence in major cities across the country.However, King’s legacy has lived on.In 1969, his widow, Coretta Scott King, organized the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change. Today it stands next to his beloved Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. His birthday, January 15th, is a national holiday, celebrated each year with educational programs, artistic displays, and concerts throughout the United States. The Lorraine Hotel where he was shot is now the National Civil Rights Museum.Note: Multiple publications contributed to this report. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Grand National has a wide open field in 2020

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The Grand National is one of the biggest sporting events in the world, countless bets are placed, tickets sold and televisions tuned in. Horse racing is one of the most popular sports to bet on in the sports betting industry and betting sites all line up to release the odd of which horses are likely to cross the line first. As the events creep closer you will have endless access to information on the competing horses to help you decide which horse to put your money on when making a daily lucky 15 bet.Tiger RollThe reigning champion of the event for the past two years (2018/2019), Tiger Roll, is a leading contender to make 2020 a hat trick if he competes in the 2020 event… At 10 years old, he is nearing the end of his racing days, as some can retire at the age of 4, but horses can hit their prime at 8 or 9, leading some to race until they’re 12 or possibly older.Tiger Roll was the first to win consecutive Grand National since Red Rum in 1973-74 and would be the first to win three in a row if he competes and is victorious. Burrows SaintAt only seven years old when the event comes around, Burrows Saint is second on the bookies favorite to win, just behind Tiger Roll. The last horse of this age to win the Grand National was back in 1940 and will be his first run in the race, but bookies have faith so keep an eye on him if he lines-up later in the year.Native River The 2019 Grand National saw Native River break a rein, as well as a few mistakes being made during the race. He is a promising contender to win, especially with his experience on the course and another year under his belt. Trained by Mrs. J. Harrington, Native River would be her second win if he is successful in 2020, along with Comply or Die in 2008.Elegant Escape6th place at the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2019 and Welsh national winner 2018, Elegant Escape is a frontrunner for the 2020 Grand National. Despite not having run the track or jumped the fences of the event, his skills are looking enough to get him a win.Pleasant Company Achieving a respectable 2nd place in the 2018 Grand National, but disappointingly unseating his rider in the 2019 race, Pleasant Company is still on the books to win in 2020.Although facing mishaps in 2019, he was on his way to a top finishing spot, running in fourth before losing his jockey. When the races come around, he will be 12 years old which shouldn’t stop him from a victory, with two previous winners of this age since 1995.Give Me A Copper Trainer P.Nicholls has his sight set on the Grand National 2020 after Give Me A Copper won Wincanton. The horse is set to compete at the Becher Chase and Grand Sefton to get some experience before heading into the National in April; getting a feel for Aintree track.
