It was the beginning of the race for Seat #2. But then over eight months passed, and Velazquez found herself still running in her own lane unopposed.Commissioner Diane VelazquezAlice NolanThen on December 1st, 2017 two candidates joined Velazquez in the race and filed to run in the Seat #2 election – Leroy Bell and Alicia Koutsoulieris. Then on January 4th, during the Apopka Municipal Election qualifying week, Alice Nolan filed to also run for Seat #2.Nolan, the overachieving candidate in 2016,  received 2,159 votes (22.74%) in the Seat #3 election against incumbent Commissioner Sam Ruth and eventual winner and current Commissioner Doug Bankson in 2016 but did not qualify for the runoff a month later. She did, however, gain political momentum that many thought would propel her into another campaign in 2018.All along this race seemed destined to go to a runoff – and here we are.In two polls conducted in January and February by The Apopka Voice, Nolan and Velazquez ran neck-and-neck, then on election day, Nolan edged Velazquez with 2,478 votes (39.7%), while Velazquez received 2,340 votes (37.49%). In third place was Leroy Bell with 1,206 votes (19.32%), and Alicia Koutsoulieris received 218 (3.49%).Now with Bell and Koutsoulieris off the ballot, who holds the edge in this head-to-head runoff? Where does the race for Seat #2 stand? Will it be as close as election day? There’s one way to find out.The Apopka Voice Reader’s Poll will ask one question:If the runoff election for Apopka City Commission Seat #2 were held today, who would you vote for? Alice Nolan or Commissioner Diane Velazquez?The poll will close at noon on Friday, April 6th, at which time we will publish its results.This is not a scientific poll. The margin of error is unknown, but it should reflect a snapshot of where our readers stand with these two candidates coming into the runoff as it accurately did in January and February.So vote for the Seat #2 candidate you think will best lead Apopka into its promising future.Proceed Gov.

Player charged with assault and facing life ban after punching referee in club rugby match

first_imgTuesday Jul 30, 2019 Player charged with assault and facing life ban after punching referee in club rugby match A club rugby player in New Zealand faces a potential life ban after he punched a volunteer referee in a match in Middlemarch, Otago, on Saturday. Brief footage of the incident was uploaded to facebook, showing the disgusting act.ADVERTISEMENTIt was the end of a tense final between Strath Taieri and Crescent in the senior grade. As reported by NZ Herald, the Crescent player was called over by referee Brandon Hale after he had barged into an opposition player who was picking up the ball to take a penalty.After talking to the offender, the referee issued a red card, to which the player reacted by throwing a wild punch, hitting him in the shoulder and head.The 27-year-old player has now been charged with common assault by the police. He is due to appear in Dunedin District Court next week.The Otago Rugby Football Union has also started it’s own judicial process, and will push for a life ban.“We were just killing the time, running the ball up, but with 10 seconds to go this guy just came up and donged one of our players,” said Strath Taieri president Shane Taylor.“We are certain the ORFU will will deal with it in the way they see fit. It’s really put a dampner on the game but the way Crescent dealt with it was admirable.”ADVERTISEMENTThe footage is a bit shaky as the crowd erupted in shock, and a small melee ensued, but that was soon stopped and the match continued. The home side, Strath Taieri, won 29-24.

Sacred Harp singing now annual event

first_img Sacred Harp singing now annual event Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Content Latest Stories Bill Hogan of metro-Montgomery is a member of a Sacred Harp group that tries to find a place to sing almost every weekend.“I love the music,” he said. “I love the spirit of the music. It encourages me, and it encourages my heart. Each of the four parts has its own melody and we sing out on our melody. Sacred Harp music has a different flavor. It’s a wall of sound and you feel the music.”Like Hogan, Mary Howard of Troy loves Sacred Harp singing. However, unlike Hogan, she didn’t go to the center of the square Saturday to lead her favorite song. Rather, sat near the back and sang just like she did when she was a little girl.“I’ve always loved Sacred Harp singing,” Howard said. “I learned to sing Sacred Harp before I learned my ABCs.” Published 9:59 pm Monday, March 1, 2010 Either way one looks at it, Sacred Harp singing is “a joyful noise.”Bill Hogan describes it as “joyful.”Scott Flowers says it’s “noise.” By The Penny Hoarder Skip Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Put ’em together and Sacred Harp singing is a “joyful noise.”More than 50 people gathered at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama on Saturday for what, “given its success” will be an annual event.“The Sacred Harp Singing was a great success. It attracted singers from all across the Wiregrass and north to Montgomery,” said Jerry Peak, museum director. “We had several people from Troy who participated. Some participated as singers. Some came to learn and some came just to listen.” By Jaine Treadwell Howard said the beauty of Sacred Harp to her is the “minor music.”“I love minor sounds,” she said. “It’s the sound of yesterday. The sounds that I grew up with and there’s no other sound like it.”And, it’s a sound that Scott Flowers said he just couldn’t understand or vocalize.He and his wife Diane were first time shape note singers, and he said he felt like “a fish out of water.”“That was my first exposure and Sacred Harp is hard to sing and I felt so dumb,” Flowers said laughing. “I’m not a shape note virgin. I’ve tried it.”Diane Flowers, however, said she “kind of” enjoyed it.“I sat and tried to sing. It is hard, but I stumbled my way along the fasola,” she said. “I enjoyed the challenge and I’ll go back.”And, way in the back was Agnes Johnson. She settled in with her smocking in her lap and never intended to sing a note.“I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but I love Sacred Harp singing,” she said. “I was there to listen, and I really enjoyed it. Many years ago, my uncle Frank Hataway introduced me to Sacred Harp singing and, when they had singings at Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church, I would go and sit and listen. It’s a different kind of music but it inspires me and I love to listen.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like Group discusses county’s donation The chair for the Pike County Soil & Water Conservation District described the Pike County Commission’s recent vote in favor… read more Email the author Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

New lawsuit from detainees, advocacy groups claims ICE denied medical treatment

first_imgdanielfela/iStock(NEW YORK) — A group of detained immigrants are alleging in a new lawsuit that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has systemically failed to ensure individuals in the agency’s care have been given access to adequate medical and mental health care. “This lawsuit is against ICE in terms of the people who are held in facilities across the country — it’s a class action lawsuit that includes every facility in which ICE detains people … which we estimate is about 160 to 170 facilities today, and that includes about 55,000 people who are in ICE custody,” Elissa Johnson, a senior supervising attorney with Southern Poverty Law Center, told ABC News in a phone interview. Johnson called the lawsuit “the first of its kind” in its effort to challenge “the conditions of confinement in ICE custody on a national level through class-action litigation.”The lawsuit was filed on behalf of 15 immigrants who were detained at eight facilities in multiple states. It “challenges ICE’s systemic failures to enforce constitutional and statutory requirements at the approximately 158 facilities across the country where people in immigrant detention are held,” according to a news release from the Southern Poverty Law Center, one of the groups who filed the lawsuit.When asked for comment, the agency said it does not comment on pending litigation.An ICE official noted that individuals who are detained have comprehensive medical care while in the agency’s care and said that detainees receive a comprehensive medical exam within the first two weeks at the facility. The official also said that detained individuals should expect timely medical care based on their needs.The lawsuit alleges that ICE has both delayed and denied medical and mental health care to detainees, challenges “the punitive use of solitary confinement” and argues that ICE has discriminated against people who need “disability accommodations,” according to the press release.The plaintiffs’ allegations include two detainees who, the lawsuit says, have diabetes and indicates that they both “were denied their daily dosages of insulin on multiple occasions.”The lawsuit also says one of the plaintiffs who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, depression and suicidal ideation has allegedly “spent approximately nine months in near-total isolation without even a guard adequately monitoring her well-being.”Another plaintiff in the case is deaf, according to the complaint, which alleges that he “has been denied an American Sign Language (‘ASL’) interpreter in detention, which has prevented him from receiving effective communication with medical staff and his lawyer.”All of the plaintiffs are “individuals currently detained by ICE in repurposed prisons and jails,” the news release said.“This administration’s horrific mistreatment of immigrants is not limited to individuals at the border,” said Lisa Graybill, deputy legal director for the SPLC.“The fact that immigrant detention is supposed to be civil, and not punitive, is a distinction without a difference when it comes to how detained immigrants are treated. At least 26 people have died since Trump took office, and tens of thousands have suffered as a result of the federal government’s abject failure to provide basic medical care at the facilities where taxpayers are spending billions to detain immigrants. More will suffer, and more will die, without court intervention,” her statement continued.SPLC was joined by Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC), Disability Rights Advocates (DRA), and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP in filing the lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S District Court for the Central District of California.

Significant storm system begins to impact California with heavy rain, flash flooding

first_imgiStock(LOS ANGELES) — An intensifying and complex storm system is bringing some bands of heavy rain and some mountain snow to parts of northern and central California this morning. This is only the beginning of significant mountain snow, heavy and flash flooding and gusty winds through much of California through Monday.Winter Storm Warnings have been issued for a large chunk of California this morning. Some winter Storm Watches have been issued outside of Los Angeles and San Diego while Wind Alerts have been issued for parts of the region as well.The most intense impacts from this storm system will occur Sunday and last well into Monday. On Sunday, the first wave of precipitation will push further inland and heavy rain and gusty winds will stretch down most of the California coast line, eventually reaching southern California Sunday evening.The heaviest round of snow will arrive in the Sierras later Sunday. The heavy snow could cause very dangerous conditions on the roadways through the mountains.Any essential travel could become extremely dangerous with white out conditions and road closures likely with winds gusts of up to 90 mph in the highest elevations of the Sierras.As the rain reaches Los Angeles and San Diego, especially by Monday morning, locally heavy downpours and some thunderstorms will be possible where rainfall rates could reach 0.75 inches per hour.This could cause some flash flooding in urban areas with mud and debris flows and boulder slides. Winds at times could gust 45 to 60 mph which could down trees and power lines.While part of this system will quickly move into the mountains, a lingering low pressure system will remain in the Southern California area and continue to spring up scattered rain and snow showers into the middle of the week.Through the middle of the week, locally 1 to 4 feet of snow is possible in the Sierras. Snowfall will also be possible in the mountains outside of Las Vegas with locally over 1 foot of snow possible there.It is important to note that ABC7 Bay Area Meteorologist Drew Tuma reported just a few days ago that the snowpack in California for the winter season was just 53% of average meaning additional snow is welcome news.In parts of Southern California, rainfall totals could reach 4 inches, particularly in the higher elevations. Meanwhile, valleys and coastal areas could see over 2 inches of rain.A disturbance will develop in the Midwest by Tuesday and bring some heavy rain and severe weather to parts of the region. Initial thoughts are that severe weather will be likely from Illinois to Ohio and northern Kentucky. Damaging Wind Gusts and large hail look to be the main concern for now.

New economy scoops the rest in fight for graduates

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article European companies used to attracting the cream of science and engineering graduates are losing out to so-called new economy employers.A survey by recruitment and consulting specialist Universum found that graduates are increasingly attracted to the telecoms industry.Nokia is now the employer most engineering and science graduates want to work for. Last year it was the eighth most popular choice.Andersen Consulting, which was ranked first last year, has fallen to seventh position in 2000.The survey questioned students at 63 leading universities in 10 European countries.Nokia has also increased its popularity among business students, moving from 22nd to fourth place this year.But McKinsey remains the top employer for this group of students, followed by Boston Consulting Group and Andersen Consulting.The Universum Graduate Survey 2000 – Pan-European Edition report concludes, “The rapid expansion of the telecommunications industry has not passed unnoticed among European students with the popularity of employers such as Nokia and Ericsson having risen greatly since last year’s survey.” It added, “It is the skyrocketing importance of the new economy that challenges the established order.“Telecoms, the Internet, and even entrepreneurship are appealing more and more to technically savvy students.”Fiona Forsyth, HR coordinator at Scottish software development company Real Time Engineering, said the graduate recruitment market continues to be highly competitive. She said, “We have put a lot of effort into our graduate recruitment campaign this year and as a result have succeeded in making seven offers.“Our experience is that things are pretty tough at the moment and other companies we know that other companies are finding the same thing.“We are all interested in finding out why it is so difficult.”www.universum.se New economy scoops the rest in fight for graduatesOn 27 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
