Velazquez quietly announces her re-election bid for Seat #2

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Mama Mia 25 people who might run for office in ApopkaPart Three: Apopka City Commission Seat #2Opinion/AnalysisNote – Within hours of each other last week, Mayor Joe Kilsheimer and Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson announced their candidacies for the Apopka Mayoral election, which is approximately one year away.And with those two high-profile announcements, the Apopka political season officially began. For the next four days, The Apopka Voice will analyze four 2018 election contests that will most catch the attention of the community – Apopka Mayor, Apopka City Commission (seats #1 and #2), and the Orange County Commission (Seat #2). TAV will reach out to the 25 people we believe might run for those four offices, and confirm if they are going to be a candidate or sit this election cycle out. Today we focus on the race for Apopka City Commission Seat #2Will Velazquez run unopposed?Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. The Apopka political season is upon us. Just a year away from election day and there are already two races taking shape. For mayor, it’s the incumbent Joe Kilsheimer versus Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson in what looks like an intriguing matchup. For City Commission Seat #1, incumbent Billie Dean has not decided if he will run or retire after 23 years in office, but his undecided status did not stop two candidates from announcing their intent to run for the seat.Gene Knight (of Apopka Then and Now fame), and Pastor Alexander Smith announced their candidacies yesterday, and don’t be surprised if more follow. Seat #1 should be a wild ride with first-time candidates providing a lot of choices, entertainment, and excitement for Apopka voters.But what about Seat #2?Commissioner Diane Velazquez was elected to the Apopka City Council in March 2014. She beat incumbent Marilyn Ustler McQueen 2,646 (55%)-2,145 (45%). She quietly announced her intent to run for re-election in 2018 at the March 15th City Council meeting after Kilsheimer announced his re-election bid.No fuss. No Facebook announcements. No fundraising events. No meet-and-greets. Velazquez has kept it low key, and so far she has no challengers.Alice Nolan was the surprise candidate of the 2016 election cycle. In her very first run for office, the 27-year-old received 2,159 votes (22.74%) in the general election against incumbent Sam Ruth and eventual winner Doug Bankson. She did not qualify for the runoff election a month later, but she left the race with a lot of momentum that most thought would propel her into another campaign in 2018.However Nolan, now 28, chose to take this cycle off.“I am humbled by the family, friends and fellow citizens of Apopka who have publicly come out to say they will support me in my endeavors to run for City Commissioner. My love for Apopka, as many have seen, runs deep, and is shown through the many hours of volunteering I do for our community.  With much thought and prayer, I have chosen not to run for Apopka City Commissioner this term. I feel in my heart that my place in Apopka currently lies in my advocacy for its citizens and continued community service.  I encourage anyone to run for office because the chair belongs to the great citizens of Apopka.”With Nolan sitting this one out, is it possible Velazquez could win her second term unopposed? It’s a little early… okay it’s way too early to determine the probability, but keep in mind that if Seat #1 ends up an open seat (meaning no incumbent is running), why would a candidate choose to take on an established candidate like Velazquez when they can enter the free-for-all that Seat#1 could end up being? 2 COMMENTS Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Morgan Stoddart’s slam tackle on Leigh Halfpenny

first_imgSunday Oct 24, 2010 Morgan Stoddart’s slam tackle on Leigh Halfpenny This is a short clip from Friday night’s Magners League match played in Cardiff as Scarlets beat the Blues 16-10. It was a low scoring affair with two nice tries but not too much else to write home about, other than this big tackle in the first half. Morgan Stoddart made the hit on opposite number Leigh Halfpenny and despite putting on a good poker face and arguing his point to the ref, was penalised as it was viewed as dangerous by the touch judge. Based on recent occurrences, the tackle might have been worthy of a yellow card, but in Stoddarts favour was the fact that he brought the player to ground safely, albeit on the back of his neck in what looked more like a wrestling move than a rugby tackle. It could be viewed as an awesome tackle for some, but reckless and dangerous for others. It probably depends which side of the fence you sit on. Stoddart was actually yellow carded a few minutes later though as he failed to roll away after making a tackle close to his tryline. Halfpenny wasnt injured, and continued on but later picked up an ankle injury, causing an injury scare for the national team. Coach Dai Young said he will be fit though ahead of the series against Australia, South Africa, Fiji and New Zealand. Stoddart himself limped off in the second half after picking up a hamstring niggle.Time: 01:42 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Scotland drop Kelly Brown for England clash

first_imgThursday Feb 6, 2014 Scotland drop Kelly Brown for England clash Scotland captain Kelly Brown has been dropped for their upcoming Six Nations clash with England at Murrayfield, with Brown not even making the replacements bench for the Calcutta Cup match that sees the Scots as heavy underdogs with Betfair. Scrum-half Greig Laidlaw will instead lead the team out as captain, the third occasion he has skippered the side. Head coach Scott Johnson has made three changes to his starting line-up following Scotland’s comprehensive 28-6 defeat to Ireland in their opening game in Dublin.As well as handing Chris Fursaro his first cap, Johnson has called up the flanker’s Glasgow team-mate Tommy Seymour to replace the injured Sean Maitland on the wing for a game in which the English are expected to win, according to the Betfair odds The third change sees Matt Scott named at inside centre with Duncan Taylor dropping to the bench, with veteran hooker Scott Lawson named ahead of Pat McArthur as replacement hooker. British and Irish Lions lock Richie Gray loses out on a place on to the bench to younger brother Jonny.While Johnson admitted it was a tough decision to drop Brown from the squad, the Scotland boss made it clear Fusaro’s skills as a ball-winner on the floor had been key in the selectors’ making the call for the second game of the tournament, and a game in which the Scots have been written off by many Betfair visitors.“England are powerful, they have an edge to their side and are assertive and aggressive. They will probably consider themselves unlucky last weekend but it’s not always brute force that wins these games,” said coach Johnson.Scotland Team: Hogg, Seymour, Dunbar, Scott, Lamont, Weir, Laidlaw (c); Grant, Ford, Low, Swinson, Hamilton, Wilson, Fusaro, Denton.Replacements: Lawson, Dickinson, Cross, J Gray, Beattie, Cusiter, Taylor, Evans.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Situated in Bandung’s hillside area, the EH Residence is designed to be a weekend villa for a mother and her children. This 3-bedroom villa is completed with several gathering areas that are connected with one open balcony. Within the site, this villa is designed to be a node of activities that are secluded by the thick pine trees.

Aside from thermal considerations, atmosphere selection was also chosen to provide the comfort and sense of warmth in the villa, where the family would gather and rest. Different floor levels reflected the degree of privacy needed. The ground floor of the residence has all the answer to service needs and bedrooms, completed with windows that overlook the view on the south.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoWhile on the first floor has a semi-outdoor balcony, living area, dining area and reading lounge in the mezzanine. This row of areas is separated with a fireplace and sliding glass doors that would be opened daily and connected with a large, long balcony that stretches along the side of the residence. The composition of the mansard roof was developed through constructions and new architectural details, an approach to the locality of the context that is elaborated with new technological novelty. Not only creating a more voluminous space with the fractured form of the roof, but a skylight was also introduced to welcome the sun through the wooden ceiling.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessAmazon Blink Studio / Ultraconfidentiel DesignSelected ProjectsSNHU Innovation and Design Education Building / HGASelected Projects Share Architects: andramatin Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeandramatinOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBandungIcebergOn FacebookIndonesiaPublished on January 09, 2021Cite: “EH House / andramatin” 09 Jan 2021.

A court is due to begin hearing the appeal on 19 April.The press freedom organisation urges the government to use its influence to have the case against the CNC withdrawn. “A year has gone by and the authorities should defuse the situation,” Reporters Without Borders said.The CNC is a leading provider of broadcast equipment and services to foreign news media based in Egypt. Equipment was seized from the company a year ago after Al Jazeera broadcast footage of demonstrators tearing up posters of President Hosni Mubarak during protests and rioting in Mahalla on 6 April 2008 that left three dead and dozens wounded.As a result of a complaint brought by the state-run Egyptian Radio and Television Union accusing the CNC of operating an unlicensed broadcast network and broadcasting without a permit, a lower court sentenced the CNC to a fine of 150,000 Egyptian pounds (20,000 euros). The conviction and the seizure of the CNC’s equipment were a significant setback for media freedom in Egypt. Nader Gohar, the head of the CNC, still faces a possible five-year prison sentence.Reporters Without Borders wrote to Ahmed Anis, the head of the Egyptian Radio and Television Union, on 7 April asking him to withdraw the complaint against the CNC.

Writer’s centre loses arts funding

first_imgFacebook A VOLUNTARY Limerick organisation which helps emerging writers and which promotes poetry and prose, has been left out of Arts Council Funding this year. Dominic Taylor, board member of the Limerick Writers Centre, said he is “bitterly disappointed” that the council has not seen fit to give them a grant this year, having funded the centre previously. Last year the Centre was allocated €2,500 for its ‘On The Nail’ monthly reading series, which sees guest authors and poets doing readings.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It wasn’t a huge amount of money but it meant that we could pay a reading fee to authors and cover their expenses but now we will have to rely on the generosity of authors to give their time for free.“We had our first reading of the year last Tuesday week and the Three Legged Stool poets from Clare came and read for free and that’s what we will have to hope for from now on”.The Centre relies on voluntary effort to run many events including two writers’ groups, which meet at it’s HQ at 12 Barrington Street, on the first Friday of each month where group members read and critique each other’s poetry and prose.“We put so much voluntary effort into organising events and encouraging emerging writers and having the readings helps give us a profile,” says Dominic who says the money from the Arts Council was very important in that regard,” Dominic said.As well as the writers groups and readings, the centre also runs courses such as a beginners playwriting course, Haiku workshops, talks on publishing and getting published and a short story writing competition.Dominic said that another application is being made for the second round of funding “but there’s no guarantee that we will get anything”.Other Limerick groups fared better than the Writer’s Centre, with Askeaton Civic Trust getting €9,500 from the council under its Small Festivals fund, an improvement of €1,500 on last year’s grant. The Kate O’Brien Weekend got an equal amount of funds as last year, being awarded €2,000 and the Limerick Jazz Festival got €12,000, €4,000 more than the previous year. The White House Poets were not funded last year but got €3,500 for their Poetry Revival events.Closing date for applications for funds from the second round is February10 and the successful applications will be announced in May.
