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.

Nice plaques, nice photos, somebody thought highly of our representatives……….. 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.

Throughout the season, the team collected pledges from their fans through which the fans agreed to donate money for every turnover the Varsity Team forced throughout the season; all in the name of supporting local food pantries. Thirty-one turnovers later the team had raised $983. Over spring break the Varsity Football Team came together and delivered their Turnover Hunger donations to the Batesville Food Pantry and the Holton Food Pantry. This donation allowed these two food pantries to feed approximately 250 families over the Easter Holiday.“The Ripley County Community Foundation works hard to assist every individual or group in their quest to give back to their community. The RCCF Board of Directors immediately recognized the Turnover Hunger initiative as a way for the community foundation to empower local youth with the tools needed to fulfill their charitable wishes. The Community Foundation is proud to administer this program for the Batesville Varsity Football team and hopes the seed planted in 2017 will grow in 2018 and will become a countywide initiative in the future,” stated Amy Streator, RCCF Executive Director.
