He finished with 58 runs under his belt in just 38 balls. His knock included 9 boundaries and a six. Ali played the waiting game early on and then capitalized on the loose deliveries. He fell while attempting a punch off the backfoot but one can’t blame him for the shot at that stage. The two openers were replaced by skipper Bhanuka Rajapaksa and keeper Azam Khan in the middle.Rajapaksa survived an LBW call on the very first ball and then made full use of his life. He smothered three boundaries in an over and that got him off. He finished unbeaten on 37 runs off 24 balls scoring 6 boundaries and a six. Azam Khan was in his element today as well and didn’t hold himself back against playing the big shots. He targetted the ‘V’ and the leg side to score most of his runs and finished off the game with an unbeaten 16-ball 35. He hit 3 huge sixes along with 3 fours and took the Gladiators over the line!Qais Ahmad and Dhammika Prasad were the only bowlers to take a wicket where the rest six bowlers struggled to find tight lines on a sluggish pitch. Isuru Udana, who has a lot of weight on his shoulders wasn’t at his accurate best and that meant there was no pressure on the batsmen. ATP Tour Football LPL 2020 Galle Gladiators beat Colombo Kings by 8 wickets: Chasing 172, Galle Gladiators reached the target with 15 balls sparing to pick up their first win of the season. Ahsan Ali played a sublime knock of 56 with his opening partner Gunathilaka  scoring 38 as the Gladiators cruised to a comfortable 8 wickets win.The Galle Gladiators proved to be too hot with the bat for Colombo Kings as the bowlers managed to pick just 2 wickets in 17.3 overs! Dhanushka Gunathilaka continued his rich vein of form as he scored 38 runs off 28 balls with 5 boundaries in his innings. He kept the bowlers thinking with his unorthodox style of play. As a surprise, he did not attempt the reverse sweep today!

Consensus of City Council: Yes to Splash Pad, no to Skate…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply I guess what is surprising to me is the photo in the above article of the big giant budget book for the City of Apopka. Now days everything is electronic and online. I know the budget is all online, and stored everywhere electronically, but there sits the big book, and the other photos of the council members pouring over the line items of the big budget book and flipping the pages. They all have access to all kinds of electronics devices, and know how to use them, but there sits the council members each with a big budget book hardcopy. What is old is new, and what is new is old, everyday in our daily life. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 August 21, 2016 at 9:04 am And if by chance Trump comes through this town in his fancy limo, I hope he gets a red- light ticket!! In fact, a whole bunch of them!!!!!! August 20, 2016 at 9:17 am $ 4000 dollar site study X 1000 different location ideas = $ 4,000,000……..you know, at this point in time, let’s just let the mayor decide where, and go along with it………when the skate park issue comes off of the back burner. LOL! Mama Mia Yeah, no doubt that some of the parents want a skate park, as they want to get rid of the kids, get them out of the house, and put them on someone else to have to put up with and babysit! Good luck finding a private investor who wants to invest in a skate park partnership with the city. I notice the mayor states the skate park will be on the West Orange Trail……where? Along Edward’s Field?along Martin and Park? or Sandpiper and Park? Or other location? I think the commissioners were overwhelmed with the huge budget book, and after going over all the proposed expenses the 3 commissioners decided that the skate park could be put on the backburner for now. I think that makes good sense. They could put the skate park on the lot near the police station, there near 6th and Forest. That is along the trail but they would have to address where to park cars……… Mama Mia Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 August 24, 2016 at 5:09 pm David Odom Reply August 19, 2016 at 4:50 pm Reply Mama Mia Mama Mia August 19, 2016 at 4:56 pm Reply Reply Reply Mama Mia August 22, 2016 at 1:52 pm August 20, 2016 at 7:45 pm August 24, 2016 at 11:53 pm August 20, 2016 at 8:58 am Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia I see the article about the District 7 Orange County School Board race in the Orlando Sentinel’s Orange Extra, Section J, dated today, Sunday Aug. 21, 2016……..first they cheated all of you, no photos of the candidates. Plus they are disclosing the ladies age. How dare them!!! Hmm…..so Laura Round is running because the district eliminated her position, and if elected she’d like to replace the superintendent……got to love that reason!!! I love it. You go girl. Now, this is what I am reading, so don’t get mad at me!! Pay back, no doubt! That is okay in my book. August 22, 2016 at 11:14 am Mama Mia Reply I plan on voting for Keith Landry and also for Chuck O Neal. Both newbies to political office. Give them a chance. If they don’t pan out, then vote them out, I say. Give them a chance, at least. Others have had their chances at the political scene, over and over and over, like a broken record stuck in the groove………even Christopher Columbus took a chance!

I apologize if I have been harsh to you, and I mean that sincerely. It is just that living within the proximity of all these schools can drive a person crazy with all the traffic and chaos. I would not want your job under any circumstances, as it seems parents are never satisfied about anything, and they take it out on you, as did I, even though I am not a parent. I still would like to see some speed limit signs posted along the frontage of AHS though, okay? Is that possible? August 23, 2016 at 1:40 pm Matthew Fitzpatrick stated that he grew concerned about an overemphasis on testing after AHS dropped an automotive class to make more time for test prep. The gall! Wish I had of taken an automotive class in school. I needed it, but didn’t know it at the time. How come back when I was in school, I never was told I could opt out of testing? I would have jumped for joy, if my parents would have said to opt out!! No, the tests were passed out, in the classroom, and you just did it! If anyone would have had the nerve to say, “I’m not taking this test”………then they would have been sent to the principal’s office. I don’t know about now, but when I was back in school, the dinosaur days, they had paddling. In my fourth grade class, I remember the teacher’s desk sat caddy- corner, in the corner, and she had a big wooden paddle, and if you disobeyed, she would call your name to come up, bend over, and you got paddled in front of the entire class. I am serious. Later on at AHS, if you disobeyed, you got sent to the principal’s office, and someone other than the principal, would paddle your hind- end. For real, I know that firsthand. LOL!!! Mama Mia I hope there will be more excitement in the air for the Nov. election, as it has been rather dull for this next election. I have been getting so many campaign flyers in the mail. I think the one from the PAC group trashing Jeff Aston is ridiculous, and I understand that it is paid for by someone that lives outside our area. It is shameful, and that is all I got to say about it!!! Mama Mia August 20, 2016 at 12:08 pm I have a copy of The Apopka Chief, Aug. 19, 2016, yesterday’s newspaper……page10A, the full color photo of the large mural that is hanging in the newly re-built Dream Lake Elementary School…….. That is a beautiful painted mural of Dream Lake! However, I do not see credit to the artist, who painted the mural, meaning their name, nor do I see the costs paid out for the mural.. Did I miss something somewhere else in the newspaper? I don’t want to assume, but I don’t see it. Credit should be given to the artist who created this beautiful work, and the amount paid to the artist for the mural, as it was the public funds, so I am led to believe. I would ask Christine, but again, I know that Christine doesn’t answer tax payer’s questions about school related projects on social media, generally speaking, even though she is OUR school board representative. ????? Too busy campaigning for re-election I suppose?????………..Christine, do you see my questions or care to answer my questions?????? You are the one who should answer this, as you are OUR local school board representative. Reply Reply Reply I am not happy to know that a tropical storm could be heading this way to Florida, ugh. I have tried once again to view the OCPS board meeting from last night, and it does not come up????? Shows a gray background and says something about Live Broadcast Area…..blah, blah…..I got it up once last night, and saw the Apopka Bowling Champs, and slide it across to speed it up. Wanted to review it again but no luck. I see the other board meetings and they come right up. What gives???? I don’t understand the portion of the video that says, “Live streaming will continue after confidential disciplinary action”…….who is getting disciplined, honestly???? I already told you all in my above postings about when I was in 4th grade, and how our “confidential disciplinary action” went in front of the rest of the class…………LOL!!!

So why not take the big CAT equipment, the ditch- digger, or the backhoe down to Dream Lake, and yank those cattails out of there across the park frontage at Dream Lake, and beautify the park? Armando Sr. used to go there to the lake, and used the equipment, and cleared along the lake front, before he retired with the city. We have others who can do it now. Reply I decided to watch today’s Orange County School Board Meeting on you tube as I am new to the school board viewings. I saw the Apopka Bowling champs, and I saw people sitting way in the back part of the meeting with a whole lot of vacant seats in the middle. Is that where those people wanted to sit, or were they made to sit back there?????? This school board meeting stuff is new to me. I saw an empty chair where one member was suppose to be sitting. I saw Christine, and she was dressed very nice and all fixed up, with a beautiful necklace and outfit on,and I saw her speak about the bowling team, and the next thing I knew she went out the back, behind the other members backs, with her purse, and she was gone!!! I moved the video along as the speakers talked, to hurry it up, and the next thing I knew the video showed this message, “Live streaming will continue after the confidential disciplinary actions”……..What???? Christine, I don’t know what to think?????? Then I saw the other empty seat, and the other member that wasn’t there, was now sitting there. I never saw Christine return from the back to her seat. I wanted to see how the school board meetings are conducted but this wasn’t what I expected. Is this how the meetings normally are??? Mama Mia August 19, 2016 at 7:33 pm Log onto Channel 13 News Orlando and see the story about Orange County Public Schools informing parents that their kids will now have to walk to school as they are eliminating the bus route because it is less than 2 miles to school. They have already been busing them for over a year, and cutting them off. They don’t care if little elementary school age kids have to walk along speeding traffic along JOHN YOUNG PARKWAY!!! That is a horrid area, and predators around too! What is going on with OCPS? Do they care about children at all? August 22, 2016 at 2:17 pm I have been watching the Debary Mayor fiasco, but the audio is sooooo low, but when I leave the site and come back to it, the ads are loud, especially the Fun Spot one. Very annoying! I really couldn’t hear too much of what the residents were saying to him, little bits and pieces, I know that one woman was offended by what ever he said to her. That one guy that was thin with the long silver hair and shorts on, that threatened to slap the mayor around, the mayor had him shown the door and escorted out. It didn’t look like he could hardly walk, much less slap someone around. That second guy that was called to witness, I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him, he sniggled the whole time and has been yawning, looking at the clock, etc. Just wish I could of heard more of the audio and heard it better. The city council of Debary will be judge and jury. My oh my. I bet the vice mayor will vote to oust the Debary Mayor, for sure, I believe, and I think the others will too. You would think the Debary Mayor killed someone, they way they are all acting. All for the sum of $ 500 per month salary…….!!!!! Mama Mia August 20, 2016 at 12:29 pm August 22, 2016 at 11:21 am August 22, 2016 at 11:11 pm August 20, 2016 at 10:58 pm Mama Mia August 21, 2016 at 3:49 pm Let’s see, wasn’t there suppose to be a special city council meeting after the budget today Aug 24, 2016? I think that is what I read. Now I am seeing that the budget meeting has been cancelled for today, and that the special council meeting was yesterday????? It is a little hard to keep up with the wishy- washy council’s plans………you all change more than the weather. August 22, 2016 at 10:45 pm Reply Reply Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia I knew they would oust him. Jealous of his youth. He smiled the whole time, and the contortions of the Debary Vice Mayor’s face near the end, was worthy of a new city hall mural! Yes, the Debary Mayor did the best he could do with the freak show, and he was dressed so nicely for the send-off, and oh, the grinning face sticky- note on the back cover of Mayor Johnson’s laptop was the best……!!!!! Just wish the audio could of been heard better. I broke my earphones awhile back, snapped them in two. Good night. I bet we will have lots and lots of local politicians highly interested in the ” intellectual discussions of city hall art ” come Sept. 15th……..!!!! Reply And to all of the candidates running for District 7 Orange County School Board, I still would like to see a pledge from one of you all that you WILL NOT support a tax increase if elected. I am still waiting…….tick tock, tick tock, tick tock………..anyone? One more before I head to bed…….I see that a judge in Tallahassee will address the lawsuit filed against the testing issue that affects kids in Orange and Seminole County too. The news article I read said that it centers on 3rd graders who opted out of the FSA test, and were not promoted to fourth grade, and that the state requires the kids to take the FSA and pass with a level 2 in order to be promoted to 4th grade. Here is the catcher……the state lets the local school board district decide whether to promote or holdback the kids in 3rd grade who opted out of taking the FSA test. Oh brother!!! Let the fighting begin!!! It could be used as a politically motivated weapon too, if they wanted to get nasty!!! Glad I am not running for the school board…. I would not want to be in the hot seat!!!!! I wonder how the lawsuit will go on Monday in Tallahassee, OMG?????? Good night………… Reply Reply I see in the Orlando Sentinel today that a judge in Tallahassee has heard from the mothers on their lawsuit to have their children promoted to 4th grade, even though they chose to opt their kids out of the FSA testing. The judge has not ruled on the lawsuit, as of yet. I read the article, I know what I think about it, but it does not matter what I think, and it will be up to the judge to decide, whether the judge believes the parents are rebels with a cause, or rebels without a cause, so to speak……..but citizens have a right to petition the government, against things they don’t believe to be just, or we might as well live in North Korea. The lawyers on both sides, fare well in the deal, at big $$$$$$$$$ per hour, or so much per contract!!!! Gotcha!!!! I guess……..!!! I wouldn’t put nothing pass those nuts in Tallahassee.

Mama Mia Mama Mia The one time I log on to watch the Orange County School Board Meeting Live Streamed, and Christine did a disappearing act. That is funny. Apparently she went to the Farmworkers Ass. for the political event, about the school board candidates, when she left the OCPS board meeting very early on. I was new to the school board meetings, I didn’t know, honestly, I didn’t………I didn’t know if she was back behind the scenes getting paddled or something……….after I read that notice on the video during the meeting….. Live Streaming Resumes After Confidential Disciplinary Action………LOL! I heard they are a nasty bunch, you know. I am soooooo relieved for you, Christine……..!!!. I am interested In a Whine Fest………when will they have a Whine Fest? Will they have a Whine Fest in Apopka in 2016????? Something for the whiny little people of the town, maybe???? I will even volunteer for the Whine Fest, if they have one. 68 COMMENTS Mama Mia August 24, 2016 at 10:38 am We are still getting lots of political calls. The candidates have lists of who still have not voted. That is why our phone is ringing off the hook! This is fun! This is why I wait to the very last to vote! August 23, 2016 at 4:52 pm Mama Mia I acquit the Debary Mayor, right here, right now…….. NOT GUILY!! He gets special consideration by me because he, as Mayor of Debary, when he decides he wants to travel as mayor, he constructs his own raft, provides his own fuel ( foot pedaling) and goes by himself to sail away to Cuba! No tax payer dollars wasted!!! Here in the City of Apopka, the Jetsons fly to Washington DC, Miami, Tallahassee, San Fran, Hollywood, and I have forgotten where else they fly…… and..spend big $$$$$ on hotel rooms for days at a time, fancy meals, and they go repeatedly throughout the year, and the rest of the Jetsons are asked to go along too, and spend, spend, spend. our Apopka tax payer $$$$$$$ and at the same time RAISE OUR PROPERTY TAXES!!!!! Ultimately, the judge could just decide to put the decision back to the local county school board to decide whether to promote the children or to hold them back. This is where it could get nasty and could become a politically motivated decision if passed back to the school board. The judge should rule on the decision herself, about these children in limbo, and also about the status of the testing and opting out’s future, but I’ll bet she will pass it back to the local school board to decide. It will be interesting to see the judge’s actions. Reply Please enter your comment! Good luck to you too, Christine, on your campaign for re-election for Orange County School Board District 7………..the big day is coming soon! It isn’t true Tenita. I tried to watch the video again, but for some reason it won’t start up and play again. It doesn’t show the orange framed start like the others…..it doesn’t matter anyway, as I saw it that one time, and that is enough!…… Just the Bill Sublette Big Show, if you ask me. Correction: It was 1996, not 1994, at the Orangewood Presbyterian Church political candidate event that I first heard Ms. Kat Gordon speak. Twenty years ago! Where does time go????? Mama Mia The new wine shop in Orlando is obeying the law, and what is allowed, I am not saying that it isn’t, Lake Ridge Winery and Publix do the wine tastings too. But why does the Florida law prohibit wine sellers to serve drinks, and yet allow wine tastings to be served????? I don’t get it. ……..why is the Florida law so crazy? August 22, 2016 at 11:31 amcenter_img I see where a Blue Bird school bus was purchased, by the city. It was a lot, but I think it was worth it, to have something safe and new for the recreation program to transport the kids or senior citizens in, to and from places. Well worth it, I say! At least we, as taxpayers, can see something tangible, and know where some of our tax dollars collected went. I also think that raising the wages of the school crossing guards is the right thing to do. Mama Mia Reply Mrs. Dean, I have been looking over your campaign website. Very nice! You have been everywhere and had contact with everybody, haven’t you? You have been busy! And you have been enjoying every minute of it, as I know you!! I am glad you are enjoying your campaign for Orange County School Board Member District 7 and I wish you the best. I looked over some of the links of articles on your website, and I see recess is something you advocate. I loved recess! Everyday I ran and bought ice cream nutty buddies that were huge back then, and got FAT and mama ended up having to buy me the “plump size” clothes. We had a ice cream canteen in the school basement we could go to for recess! I see that your website has a article about monkey bars and kickball are good for the brain. That is good news, as I lived on those monkey bars and loved kick ball, but then I scrolled on to another article on your website, and it was the one about how to make multiplication easy and it took me a long time to figure it out, and OMG is that really how they teach the kids multiplication now days????? I was slow at it , and like, what?????? I guess those monkey bars didn’t make me brainy after all! LOL!! It is not long until the election, and I bet you are excited. Best wishes Mrs. Dean!!!

The thing is though, that if the mural was to look exactly like Dream Lake, more cattails were needed across the front of the painting…..tall cattails, like there at Dream Lake. Lots and lots of thick tall cattails………..when, if ever, are those pesky aquatic weeds going to be removed across the frontage of Dream Lake Park???? Mama Mia August 22, 2016 at 7:56 pm I have been looking at the Florida Nelson Roses website. Those roses are beautiful. I used to have an area with rose bushes and when I was working then, I think most of my money went to buy rose bushes and flowers! At that time I knew all the rose’s names. My favorite was the Double Delight. I had the Don Juan Climber, they are so tough and hardy! I had the Angel Face that was lavender, and the Sterling Silver, I had the China Doll, and the Kentucky Derby, and the old fashioned Florida Rose, and the wild Cherokee climbing rose………oh and the John F. Kennedy Rose which was a white rose that appeared to have blood stains of red on the petals, honestly. Over time I lost them, as they were a lot of work! Perfumed Delight was the best smelling of all!

The parents of little kids forced to walk to school 2 miles or less along busy main roads should make demands to their state representative to have the law changed. That is what they are elected for. I may be wrong, but I don’t think the local board has to much to do with it, as they refer to the state statures. I could be wrong, but it seems that way to me. Phil Diamond’s campaign signs are pleasing to the eye. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, unless they are politicians, that is. Yeah, his campaign signs are diamond shaped, and look like a diamond. The signs make perfect sense, good thinking, very unique signs.

Maybe the City of Apopka could accept some of Longwood’s kids for something that our city has to offer in exchange, or if not, how much would they charge us to allow our new bus with kids, to come to their skate park and use the facilities, and to park the bus there as a part of the recreation program of Apopka……..I don’t think any investor would invest in a city partnership on a skate park, but maybe some other partnership could be worked out, where both city’s kids could benefit. Who knows.?……and save money for now, and put the money intended for the skate park, back in the city reserves, to build them back up, or transfer the funds to something else, and see just how well the kids are into the skating, and if they truly are interested, before you dive in and spend that kind of tax payer money. This would be a good time to inquire about that, as I see where the skate park has been put on hold with a 3-2 vote against. Just as we bus kids to swimming programs at other locations……. Mama Mia Getting close to the six o’clock hour and there should be some news about the Debary Mayor doings. All I need is a bowl of popcorn and a big diet coke, and glass of ice…..show time!

Reply I’m giving it up on the school subject matters, for awhile, as I am more interested in the craziness of the Debary Mayor fiasco. That is suppose to be tonight at six o’clock. I so very glad that I don’t live in Debary. I don’t know exactly what to think about it all. I don’t know who is at fault, however, I do remember the chaos when another mayor was in power there,and how badly he was treated, as they locked him out of his office, and took his office away from him, and he had to conduct city business from his own personal truck’s interior, and from the back of a restaurant, donated space, that a local restaurant gave him use of …….. So I will be watching to try to figure out the dynamics of the craziness. I tend to think they are just jealous of him, because he is young, but I could be wrong, but they even planned on barring citizens from coming to the city hall to watch the proceedings live, then changed their minds!!!

There will be no school buildings to be built, there will be no school buses or school bus drivers, no crossing guards, there will be no school buildings, thus no teachers needed at them either, no cafeterias where school food will be served, no principals, no security guards or coaches needed either. No recess will be needed, no books, no school supplies……. No expensive air-conditioning systems to break down, no water pipe breaks, no big rats in the PE rooms, no cockroaches in the locker rooms, in fact, no locker rooms and no PE rooms! no painted murals, no fancy digital signs, no fences, no flagpoles….. no school board members either thus no school elections….The teaching system will all be controlled via a satellite out in outer space, and high tech equipment will pull the programs from the satellite, into the technology and the kid’s brains will be “programmed” with subliminal messaging…..and they will be turned into little controlled conforming robots that can’t think for themselves!!!! Sports will all be via the satellite, no physical activity needed, after all the kids will be viewed as “another brick in the wall”………..oh yeah, and no A to A program will be needed either….LOL!!! Reply Mama Mia I listened to the Black Lives Matter organizer, Mr. D. Johnson, I believe that was his name, I won’t even try to spell his first name, and his speech at the city council meeting before the council members. He came off as very rational and reasonable, in my opinion. He stayed within his time limit, and he certainly did much better than some of the others, who were Apopka city residents, and who tried aggressively to overly push their personal agendas, in a manner that was not by the rules, and rules they were very aware of! I have read some negative statements about the BLM organizer, but just look who showed off at the council meeting, and it was not him! The black lives matter organizer was well mannered and respectful in my opinion, and I don’t think that one of things he requested is too much to ask for, that the restrooms to be open during the times of need, at the Alonzo Williams Park.

August 21, 2016 at 7:59 am Dale, of the Apopka Voice………I have a question for you. I am seeing this article, and here is how to find it…..google World News Nightly/New law requires all teachers to carry guns in Florida schools. The article is dated May, 16, 2015. It appears real, but is it? It states that a new bill or law was passed last year, and at the start of this new school year, all public school teachers will be required to carry hand guns on campuses. That the teachers will have to take mandatory 20 hours of gun safety classes, and hold proper licenses before the school year begins and that the school board will provide each teacher with a 9mm pistol. Surely, this is not real, is it? The world is so bizarre now days, I don’t know what to believe. Do you know about this, Dale? Check it out. I would ask Christine, but oh well, you know Christine will not respond to my questions……….. Reply Reply Yeah, we had recess in those days. I don’t remember how long the recess was, but it must have been longer than 15 minutes or 20 minutes for sure! I played on the swings, the monkey bars, the merry-go-round, the see-saws, ran all across the grassy fields and kicked balls, and we had an area where we jumped rope in teams to chants, and all that good stuff. Our recess was always outside unless it rained or was snowing, but like I said, we could go down to the basement to the ice cream canteen. The teachers left us alone to play as we wanted, but watched us from the distance. Mrs. Dean believes they over test and put too much emphasis on it. Glad I am not in school anymore. I know Mrs. Dean is dedicated and cares deeply about the students and that they get the proper education that will carry them through life, she even taught life skills for 35 years!!!

He is such as smarty-butt. I don’t care for him at all. I remember Kat Gordon from way back in 1994, when I attended a political event for candidates at the Orangewood Presbyterian Church, and I listened to her talk, and thought at that time, way back then, that she very intelligent. Mama Mia 5-0 vote for Splash Pad, 3-2 against Skate ParkThe Apopka City Council met Tuesday for their fourth Budget Workshop session where they and various city staff go over proposed items in the fiscal 2016-2017 budget with a fine tooth comb. The votes they take are non-binding, and the participants are often more candid than at a City Council meeting. Although they are open to the public, these sessions are sparsely attended. They are sometimes tedious 4-hour marathons of details, but however tedious, they are important. These workshops shape the direction the budget will go before final votes in about a month.And while most of the items and issues are discussed, tweaked, and accepted…occasionally there is an issue that requires debate. Take the proposed skate park for instance…“I’ll just tell you quite honestly my biggest issue right now is with the skate park,” said Commissioner Doug Bankson. “Not because it’s not something we want down the road, but because we are going to have to find money somewhere else to take care of other necessities. I feel like we are being too aggressive with all of these other things going on.”As he continued, Bankson explained that in his research on skate parks, there are several reasons residents may not utilize it as much as others might think.“I talked to kids who are skaters, and they say they won’t come if they have to pay. Another city that put up a skate park and said it wasn’t nearly as utilized as they thought. A lot of the kids I talked to said two things – it wouldn’t stop them from using their neighbor’s steps if they have to pay or go a long way to use it, they won’t utilize the park. But I’m not against the idea overall. I’m simply saying with all these pressing things that we have right now; I’m dragging my heels on this one. I think the splash pad is an immediate idea that will benefit a lot of people. The skate park is more of a niche; a much smaller group of kids will use it.”Mayor Joe Kilsheimer pushed back on Bankson’s assertions by referencing the residents that might use a skate park.“I have to speak up for the skate park kids,” he said. “They came to not one or two, but several meetings during our visioning process and spoke eloquently and passionately about a skate park and having a place to go… and the parents who showed up said these are good kids that need a place… that need an outlet for their activities, and right now they are skating on sidewalks and streets.  Having a place to go would focus and concentrate that activity and give adults a chance to keep an eye on them… and the thing is it’s on the West Orange Trail, accessible by a huge majority of the people in Apopka who have access to the trail.”Kilsheimer continued with a common theme…looking forward into Apopka’s future.“I continue to harp on this idea that we should invest in the future success of the city of Apopka… and I agree that public safety is our number one priority, but if we do only those things that are necessary to the exclusion of things that adds to the quality of life in Apopka, we will be an infrastructure-laden city that has no quality of life… and we can’t ignore quality of life to the exclusion of everything else.”Bankson, who seems to be taking on the role of budget-hawk on the City Council, focused on the current trajectory of city spending.“I would agree with that (Kilsheimer’s previous remark), but borrowing 4-million-dollars and having to raise taxes I think kind of does a reset for our thinking. If we are going to do anything I think a splash pad is for everyone and a skate park a little further down the road where we’re more fiscally established…and two years down the road we’re going to have to build another fire station.”Kilsheimer remained steadfast on a balanced approach between amenities and infrastructure.“We have to start with intention. Nothing gets done unless you intend to do it, so we need to intend to focus on quality of life issues, and at the same time not exclude one at the exclusion of the other… because you just get out of balance. So quality of life is just as important as all other infrastructure investments that we need to make.”Commissioner Kyle Becker weighed-in with the idea of possibly recruiting investors to offset the costs of a skate park.“In our visioning strategy the community was in favor of these things,” he said. “But their top-ranked way of paying for it was through public/private (investor) partnerships. So I’m not as concerned going down the path of including it in our budget, but I am going to lean heavily on (city) staff to make sure that comes to fruition in finding (private investment) partnerships as far as funding some of these projects.”There was a brief discussion about possible private investors and grants available for a skate park, but ultimately a consensus-vote was called for.Kilsheimer and Becker voted for both a splash pad, and skate park… but Bankson, Commissioners Billie Dean and Diane Velazquez voted for only the splash pad. The vote is not binding however, it only represents the consensus the city staff needs to advance the budget to its completion next month.Velazquez echoed the non-binding nature of the vote.“We are still in budget talks,” she said. “There is still room to adjust, eliminate or even add back items during this budget workshop. Consensus is just that… an agreement through discussion to keep or remove an item during this budget process.  For now, the consensus made at the recent budget meeting was to keep the splash pad. This splash pad has had some funds allocated for a few years, even before this administration. Admittedly, for every year we wait the cost to construct this skate park will rise. The residents of Apopka were definitive in making their voices heard; they want a recreational park with a splash pad. The skate park came out of the recent Visioning Apopka process conducted earlier this year. I reiterate we are still conducting budget workshops. When it is all said and done, this budget will have two public hearings. The residents will have an opportunity to view it and have their say.”Becker expressed some regret over the loss of the skate park, but is ready to move forward.“I am glad the Council decided to proceed with the Splash pad funding, assuming final budget approval, and will continue to press staff to work with the business community to partner on these initiatives to help further defray the cost, which there have been some that have expressed interest.  I would have liked to have taken the same approach for the Skate Park, as a large group of our youth, even adults, have stressed a strong interest in it, however I respect the opinions of the Council majority.”Two more budget meetings are slated for August 23rd and 24th starting at 3pm at The City Council Chambers.

How are you going to get investors to invest in a skate park partnership with the city if the kids say, “We ain’t paying to use the skatepark??????” There are 14 students whose fate is lingering on the judge’s decision, and the lawsuit affects 6 county school board districts including Orange, Seminole, and Osceola Counties.

I have been thinking and you all should bring the heavy equipment down there to the shoreline of Dream Lake, and I think the mayor should get in the equipment, and operate the controls and yank out those cattails. I am serious. I am not joking, or making fun. You don’t need any kind of certain licenses to operate the equipment, and you could have one or two of the operators there to show you how, and make sure you are doing it correctly. It might even be fun for you, to try something totally different, try it, you might like it. Robert could come make some awesome pictures of you all. Why not? Think about it.

Shortelle, Ph.D.Executive Director of the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictNeon green grass might be the ideal landscape for many, but current drought conditions are making that difficult to achieve.In May, the St. Johns River Water Management District expanded a Water Shortage Warning that spans Florida’s Space Coast up to Florida’s First Coast and includes all of central Florida. The objective of the Water Shortage Warning is to reduce water use and increase awareness of the need for water conservation.Knowing that many homeowner associations address irrigation and landscaping within their Deed Restrictions and Covenants, their support is critical to promoting water conservation, especially outdoors where more than half of water is for irrigation of lawns and landscapes.As we prepare for the potential of prolonged drought, we are asking homeowner associations and residents to ensure the most efficient use of water until summer rains return. This includes postponing activities like installing new sod or conducting extensive pressure washing, which use significant amounts of water. Year-round watering restrictions are in place to ensure water used for irrigation is used efficiently. Yet some utilities recently reported increased residential use, most likely due to extra irrigation to compensate for the dry weather. Currently, irrigation is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.; designated watering days depend on whether you have an odd or even numbered address.Although conditions have not yet reached a point where there is an expectation of insufficient water to meet demand, conditions do warrant heightened water conservation.Our lawns will be green again, but for now, saving water is the simplest and least expensive way to protect our water resources. “The objective of the Water Shortage Warning is to reduce water use and increase awareness of the need for water conservation.” People have been conserving for more than 40-years, so this warning will have no effect. If ALL water usage were to cease, the ground water table would show little, if any, rise (or slower descent.) WMD are waiting for ‘mother nature’ to raise the groundwater table as they do not have the power and authority to provide water for us; no matter the cost. Of course, the springs and the water table haven’t since the 1920s (?), but, there is ‘hope.’Amazing, that they get paid for accomplishing nothing!

first_img Previous articleISDA Accepting Voting Certifications for Indiana State Fair Board ElectionsNext articleSnow in the West and Indiana Rains Cause More Delays Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Growers Advised Not to Jump the Gun on the Switch to Earlier… SHARE By Andy Eubank – May 2, 2013 Growers Advised Not to Jump the Gun on the Switch to Earlier Season Hybrids If cool, wet weather continues – planting will be delayed for many growers across the Corn Belt. That will prompt questions about switching to earlier season hybrids. According to long-term research studies from DuPont Pioneer and several universities – adapted, full-season corn hybrids usually offer the best yield and profit advantage when planting delays aren’t extreme. DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Research Manager Mark Jeschke says growers who switch to a shorter season hybrid too soon will give up higher yield potential and profits. Jeschke says hybrid changes should be based on expected grower returns including yield, drying costs and test weight discounts. He says early hybrids should be used under extreme late-plant or replant situations.Even when planted late – full-season hybrids often outperform early maturing hybrids. Studies by both Pioneer and universities that included a range of hybrid maturities across planting dates extending from April through June have shown a clear yield and profit advantage for full-season hybrids. University research shows that full-season hybrids adjust to late planting with a reduction in their growing degree unit requirement of up to six units per day of planting delay – reducing the risk of fall frost damage to these hybrids. Pioneer studies across several years reinforce these findings.Jeschke encourages growers with questions about switching – including replacement hybrid availability – to consult their Pioneer sales professional. Growers can also ask about specific hybrid characteristics and environmental effects. Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Long Awaited Tax Reform Nearing Reality

first_img How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Minor Changes in June WASDE Report SHARE Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program By Andy Eubank – Dec 7, 2017 Facebook Twitter Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Tax-reform-near-realityWith the House and Senate both passing their own versions of tax reform bills, comprehensive tax reform could soon cross the finish line. That legislative feat has the support of the American Farm Bureau Federation. For agriculture, AFBF senior congressional relations director Pat Wolff says the biggest difference in the bills is how pass-through business income will be treated. That’s income reported by farmers and ranchers who file under sole proprietorships, partnerships and S-corporations.“The Senate bill provides a big deduction for business profits. The House takes a completely different version and only provides a lower rate for a third of farm and ranch profits. How they work that out matters a lot to the taxes that farmers and ranchers will pay.”Both bills continue provisions important to agriculture like business interest deduction and like-kind exchanges. Farmers can also expect relief from the burden of estate tax.“Both bills double the estate tax exemption. So, that’s good news for most farmers and ranchers. Most farmers and ranchers will be under that exemption level of $11 million a person. The House bill does repeal estate taxes, but unfortunately that doesn’t look like it will make it into the final bill.”The House and Senate are expected to work quickly to finish the bill and be ready for a final vote within the next few weeks.“The next step is for a conference committee to be formed to work out the differences between the House and Senate bill,” Wolff said. “That conference committee will be made up of members of the House and Senate who helped write their respective bills. And, because so many things are the same, there is an expectation that they’ll finish up in the next week or so.”That would get the bill to the floor for final passage before Christmas.Farm Bureau has praised both bills for bringing Congress one step closer to a tax code that works for everyone in agriculture.“Farm Bureau looks forward to the Senate and House reconciling the differences between their respective versions in conference to achieve a final tax reform package that addresses the needs and concerns of farmers and ranchers and boosts economic growth in rural America,” American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall said in a statement.Source: AFBF Name Sym Last Change SHARE Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 Home Indiana Agriculture News Long Awaited Tax Reform Nearing Reality Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 Facebook Twitter Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Previous articleOne More Smart Thing Your Smart Phone Can DoNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for December 7, 2017 Andy Eubank RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR All quotes are delayed snapshots Long Awaited Tax Reform Nearing Reality Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribelast_img read more

Lite bites

first_imgNewsLite bitesBy admin – August 19, 2010 435 Irish look to fine wineIRISH investors are increasingly turning to fine wine amid dwindling returns for other forms of investment, according to a local wine merchant.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up James Nicholson, of JNwine.com, said its investor customers had secured an annual return of about 23 per cent for their wine portfolios.“The economic downturn, particularly poor returns from the stock market and property, has prompted people to look elsewhere and wine is attracting increasing attention as a commodity which can be expected to rise in value.”Some of the company’s customers had doubled their initial investment in two years, but Nicholson emphasised that the level of return was largely dictated by the quality of the vintage and the demand for specific wines.“With banks offering low interest rates on savings and uncertainty in the world markets, people are seeking out alternative places to put their money,” he added.Pour champagne like beerFRENCH scientists have discovered the secret to keeping the fizz in a glass of Champagne: pour it like a beer.Decanter reports that a new study reveals the sparkling wine remains bubbly longer when poured at an angle rather than pouring straight into the glass and waiting for the mousse to settle before topping up.However, Tom Stevenson, chairman of the Decanter World Wine Awards’ Champagne panel, said: “Pouring Champagne like a lager is seen as a really naff way to serve it. You would not see a sommelier doing it in a million years.”The research also discovered that Champagne served at lower temperatures retains its fizz. At higher temperatures, carbon dioxide is lost more quickly.Russia bans wine importsRUSSIA has banned wine imports from the former Soviet republic of Moldova after a leading health official claimed it “should be used to paint fences”.Moldovan wine has benefited in recent years form Russia taking up to 80 per cent of its exports as well as a number of Moldovan wines winning critics approval at the Decanter World Wine Awards including one winning silver.The Russian customs service has stopped Moldovan wine from entering the country over concerns about quality and health risks, according to news agency Reuters.In the three weeks to 15 July, the Russian customs agency said there were more than half a million bottles labelled as ‘poor quality’ and more than 90 batches failing to meet hygiene standards.The Moldovan wine industry has also been the victim of deteriorating relations with Russia. Moldova’s acting president angered Moscow, claiming Soviet rule amounted to occupation.

One of those times was in the graveyard where you raped me for the first time.“I wanted all the pain to end where the pain began. My sister found me eight hours later overdosed with slit wrists still in that graveyard praying for God to just take me and take the pain I was in.“You were there in my thoughts a year later when I jumped into the river as I tried to drown myself along with the memories you had embedded in my brain. I wrote you a letter that day just before I jumped to say you win and I give up.“You isolated me from the people I loved and got inside my mind in a way I still don’t fully understand. You alienated me from my friends telling me that they were all saying nasty things about me when my back was turned.“You were there in my mind when I thought saying no to anything sexual wasn’t even an option whether I wanted it or not. You were there between the sheets when my skin often crawled when my husband tried to touch me, be intimate or make love to me.“I often wonder what kind of mother I would be and what kind of childhood my kids would have had if you had not raped, molested and manipulated me My kids would have had a better life if you hadn’t messed my mind up.“If it wasn’t for you I would have been a better mum, a better wife, a better daughter, sister and friend. Instead, I am often the messed up broken person that you made me and there are still more days than not that I hate who I am.”“The real me is warm and caring but you made me a fighter, you gave me anger and hatred and sadness and fear and isolation and shame and guilt and loneliness. Today I give this back as it belongs with you.“It is only in the past two years that I have learned that ending the pain is possible without ending my life. That there is possibly a way of putting all this behind me. A way of handing you back the guilt, the shame, the secrets, the self-hatred and distrust that should never have been mine to carry.”Ms O’Callaghan turned to O’Dea while reading the last few paragraphs of her victim impact statement.“Whacker, I stand here today and reluctantly give you your last bit of power by admitting that yes you did manage to tear me down and impact my life more than any other person I’ve ever known.“However I do not just stand here as a victim, I stand as a survivor who is strong, kind and trying their very best to begin a life you held back from me for many years. I have three amazing kids that I see every day.“I’m proud that despite you I survived the childhood trauma at your hand. I got 515 points in my leaving cert, worked hard, set up my own businesses and I remain an honest, loving person with integrity.“I’m becoming the mother my kids deserve to have and my future is looking brighter. So in a nutshell, despite standing here with my heart on my sleeve and admitting the affect you have had on me.“Let me be clear, you did not win.”by Sonya [email protected] Print Previous articleReviewing the Blithe of SpiritNext articleDuty Free operation extends a remarkable run of success Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twittercenter_img Facebook Advertisement NewsCrime & Court‘Let me be clear you did not win’By Staff Reporter – November 20, 2018 1693 Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?
