Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom The National Retail Federation (NRF) estimates back to school and back to college spending to reach $75.8 billion this year. The NRF calculates this total from the results of their annual Back-to-School and Back-to-College surveys, which they have been conducting since 2003.“With back to school spending on a ‘stock up’ cycle rather than a ‘make do’ cycle, the average family is expected to spend more freely on school and college supplies this year, according to NRF’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights and Analytics. Total spending for K-12 and college is expected to reach $75.8 billion, up from last year’s $68 billion,” reports NRF.Survey HighlightsFamilies with children in grades K-12 plan to spend an average $673.57 on apparel and accessories, electronics, shoes and school supplies, up from last year’s $630.36 for a total of $27.3 billion, according to the survey. That’s an increase of 9.6 percent from last year’s $24.9 billion and compares with a total growth of 54.8 percent over the past 10 years.College students and families with children in college plan to spend an average of $888.71, according to the survey. That’s down slightly from $899.18 last year, but total spending is expected to be up at $48.5 billion compared with $43.1 billion last year due to an increase of consumers shopping for back-to-college.Consumer confidence in the economy continues to grow and is a significant factor in how families will spend for back-to-school this year. A few more families are shopping for sales (43 percent, up from 41 percent) or comparing prices online (32 percent, up from 31 percent).Swagbucks, an online rewards program, also conducted a survey, asking parents all kinds of questions, like how much they plan to spend, what their back-to-school stressors are and more.Here’s an infograph of their results: Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

260 new homes to be built on Errol Estate

first_img Who is mowing RSR golf course? Is the city mowing it? Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Mama Mia Yes, it would be nice to know exactly who is behind the scenes in this scenario and where the funding actually is (if any exists in reality). Especially for the residents of Errol and City of Apopka, who have some experience with being led down a happy trail before, only to find out that it is not so happy at the end. Perhaps the H in “Signature H” is Helmut Wyzisk II? Some research indicates possession by Julian Larry Klein and or 5th Hole Holdings. There is much more to this story than has been revealed in local media. Surely a journalist doing a little research could find out a lot more information. But beware, it may not be all roses and rainbows as the City and Errol owners would have us believe. I have been trying to find out some information about “The Signature H Property Group”…I can’t find them listed on the http://www.sunbiz.org site as a legal registered company? Are they registered under some other name? How long have they been Consultants/Developers and what projects have they recently successfully completed. What are they and who are they? I would just like to know more about The Signature H Property Group , since they have all these plans for the redevelopment of Errol. I would also like information from them about where the funding is coming from for such a large scale project…. 15 million plus may be needed for a project like this…plus permitting, zoning, EPA approvals, etc…?Please do a profile interview with the members of “The Signature H Property Group” and include their information in your next update article to help educate everyone, especially the Errol residents, including many that just became aware of these new owners of Apopka Golf & Tennis at Errol Estate. I will assume they will be mailing out a formal introduction letter to all the Errol Estate residents, with there company profile as well as their team profiles. Looking forward to more information about “The Signature H Property Group.” Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 September 25, 2016 at 1:57 pm Also in that part of the Orlando Sentinel todays edition of Michelle Y. Ertell, she writes about the City of Oviedo buying the private Twin Rivers golf club for the price of $ 5 million dollars and it is 310 acre course. This makes me wonder about the status of RSR golf course. Would our city buy it if the owner wanted to sell it? It would not surprise me, if they wanted to do that. And if the owner agreed. I am not saying that is what is planned, by no means, but it looks like they wouldn’t mind competing with the new Errol plans. That is how they operate! And send the bill to the tax payers in the form of increased everything!!!!!! I questioned this right before the city council elections this year on my questions to the council candidates if you remember about what the candidates for the council would think about buying the RSR golf course and making it public by the City of Apopka buying it and operating it, like Winter Park does, was what I said ……this before their little meeting out there at the Italian restaurant at RSR with a lady from the Pines……of course I got no response to my questions. Would be nice if they build new condominiums for those who don’t want a house but something a bit smaller and with less headaches of maintaining. I’m familiar with the villas but don’t particularly like the style of them, I want something newer better use of space, like a spacious living room, larger windows, no popcorn ceilings and up to date kitchen, bed room and the works!

Yes, if you are a City of Apopka resident did you get the word that your utility rates are increasing for 5 consecutive years annually? Also all kinds of new utility service fees, and also garbage has went up. Have you gotten your latest utility bill just sent? Look at all the new fees that are going into effect, as they are enclosed in your latest utility bill. Now our City of Apopka property taxes are being raised on our annual tax bills! The second reading of the proposed millage tax increase will be on Sept. 28, 2016, at 5:05pm. If you disagree with the tax increase, please come to the meeting at city hall council chambers, and voice your concerns to the city council. Before the meeting starts, go and fill out a speaker card right there at the meeting, with the city clerk. Ask if you don’t know how, and someone will show you where to go to fill it out, and hand it to the city clerk. Let them know that it is unacceptable to put all these burdens on the residents and not the developers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! September 25, 2016 at 2:11 pm Mike Kuziv First let me state again I do not live in Errol Estates, so my opinions will not have any bearing on anything there in Errol Estates, so don’t get mad at me, at what I write here on this site. Okay, there have been at least 1,400 golf courses around Florida have shut down in recent years and have become eyesores for neighbors. If this community accepts the homes to be built they would have a great bonus with all the other new resort features coming in such as the water park, new clubhouse, walking trails, splash pad, daycare, underground cart barn, and all kinds of nice new amenities. Otherwise, what would happen is it would grow up into weeds, it seems. I do question how the owner and investors can create this huge plan and make a profit, with so many other golf courses going under, but this is America, and if they want to give it a try, then more power to them. My reference to the 1400 golf courses going under in Florida is the Orlando Sentinel, page A11 todays, Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016 edition and go to Michelle Y. Ertel’s commentary.

When the developers are not forced to pay their fair share for their new developments, who pays?…….the city’s residents, that is who!

It creates communities that are connected by walking trails, parks, and a diversity of housing styles, and a wide range of businesses.And the nucleus of this style will be on the property where the driving range, 6th , 7th, 8th and 9th holes currently sit. Here is their plans for each area:Driving RangeSignature H plans on building 66 townhomes that will be  1,500-2,000 square feet in size. There will also be an interior park for use by the entire Errol community.The conceptual view of the development of the Driving Range at Errol. The view is looking to the south from over Lake Francis Drive. Errol Parkway is on the left of the drawing.6th HoleA mix of 76 single family homes and townhomes ranging from 1,500-3,000 square feet will go where the 6th hole is currently situated. It will also include a large interior park also utilized by the entire Errol community like the park on the driving range. The homes would be accessed by a new road connecting to White Ivy Court near Lexington Parkway.A conceptual view of the lots that would occupy the 6th hole at Errol. White Ivy Court is at the top of the drawing.7th Hole26 Single Family Estate Homes ranging from 2,000-3,000 square feet in size are planned for the 7th hole property. The proposed new entrance to Errol Estate will result in a new road down the north side of the 7th fairway from Vick Road to Lexington Drive.  The new entrance road is proposed to be named Staghorn Drive.8th HoleStaghorn Drive will cross Lexington Parkway (probably with a roundabout), and continue up the 8th fairway.  25 Cottage Homes overlooking the golf course will be be 2,000-3,000 square feet in size will be built on either side of the roadway.9th HoleStaghorn Drive would continue up the right (east) side of the 9th fairway.  Signature H plans to build 44 Carriage Homes on the left (west) side of the fairway near the Golf Villas. These houses will range in size from 1,600-2,000 square feet, and the neighborhood will also include another community park.A view of the development proposed for the 9th hole at Errol. The Golf Villas are in the lower right. Linkside is to the upper right.Staghorn Drive would cross the top of the hill about where the current clubhouse is located and then connect with Errol Parkway near the current entrance to the golf course. To the north of Staghorn Drive would be the new clubhouse, hotel and waterpark. On the south side would be another 24 Cottage Homes ranging from 2000-3000 square feet in size.A view looking north of the community park proposed for the 9th fairway. The proposed Staghorn Drive is on the right as is Linkside. proposed homesites are on the leftAccording to Sighanture H, all of the new homes will be architecturally custom designed. All will be Environments for Living® and ENERGY STAR® certified. Among the features offered to the units will be:Advanced Security SystemsElevators (Optional)Granite Counter TopsHardwood, Tile, Carpet flooringProfessional designed landscapingAutomated Smart Irrigation SystemsAccording to Helmut Wyzisk III, spokesperson for Signature H, the development plan is inspired by aspects of “New Urbanism” which aims to create a more cohesive, walkable community.“We’re inspired by the designs of Celebration and Baldwin Park,” said Wyzisk. “This is the type of product that sells these days.”What is New Urbanism?It’s an urban design movement which promotes environmentally friendly habits by creating walkable neighborhoods containing a wide range of housing and job types. It arose in the United States in the early 1980s, and has gradually influenced many aspects of real estate development, urban planning, and municipal land-use strategies. These ideas can all be circled back to two concepts: building a sense of community and the development of ecological practices.A neighborhood style called “new urbanism” is what Signature H is proposing to bring to Errol Estate. Now with these new 260 homes coming in, if it goes as planned, the City of Apopka will lose revenue, also on the other new buildings at Errol, that will be built! LOSE LOSE LOSE…… Yes, lose! Lost revenue! This is because the previous Apopka City Council before this last city election in March, voted to lower impact fees on new development, the single service homes, appox. $ 880.00 dollars per home, and only raised the other new home impact fees $20.00 per home! I bet they feel like silly gooses now with all the new homes coming in, hundreds, if not thousands, others besides, the new proposed Errol development. The Mayor, Commissioner Velazquez, Commissioner Ruth, Commissioner Dean, and Commissioner Arrowsmith, the previous council, who let the developers off soft even though the study the city had commissioned, stated that the city was not collecting enough impact fees from the new development!!! Since that time, we have two new commissioners, on the council. I can only assume that the previous ones went soft on the developers with their votes were because they were looking to fill their campaign war chest when they are up for re-election, and want those almighty big bucks from the developers, the campaign donations!!! It is all so distasteful! 3 of those council members will be up for re-election in 2018. I guess this current council will continue to go soft on the developers and continue to stick it to the residents, as at least 3 of them are the same as the last council. That is enough for a 3-2 vote.! Who knows what the other newer council members may or may not do, when the developer’s impact fees roll back around for a vote? The residents are the ones who vote for the council, and who vote them in, and out of office, not the developers, and I think they all need reminded of that fact !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mama Mia The Anatomy of Fear September 25, 2016 at 2:38 pm Reply The City of Apopka needs to get back to basics, and take care of their own business, such as water, sewer, police, fire, garbage, parks and other basic services. The can’t continue on this path of being a fix- it- all for everything they want to improve, of other entities, and other private businesses, that is not their business, and the taxpayers should not have to foot the bill for such. What is the answer? I am a new owner in Errol. I had no clue about any of this, the seller nor the realtor disclosed any of this information to me prior to me closing. This is a double edge sword. Celebration is a nice area and very pricey! Avalon Park, not so much. If done properly I am sure it could add value, but you can never foresee the future.

All Blacks skipper broke his neck just two years ago with this attempted clean out vs the Springboks

first_imgTuesday May 5, 2020 All Blacks skipper broke his neck just two years ago with this attempted clean out vs the Springboks Flanker Sam Cane has been named as New Zealand’s new captain for when Test rugby starts up again, but it’s quite hard to believe that just two years ago he suffered a serious neck injury. ADVERTISEMENTPlaying against the Springboks in Pretoria, Cane went in to clear out Francois Louw but got himself in an awkward position, causing immediate damage to the vertebrae in his neck.The result was a fracture and meant he needed immediate surgery.While it seemed extremely scary at the time, the prognosis was positive, with estimations that he would be back in action in as little as three months.“We have every confidence he will do well with the operation and like any fracture it will probably take about three months for the bone to get strong and we’ll take it step by step,” Tony Page said.“The operation is really just to keep everything in the right place so the bone can heal on it own accord. Many sportsmen have had this injury as have people in other walks of life and they usually make a good recovery.”The emergency surgery found there was no nerve damage and a gradual rehabilitation culminated in a return to contact work.ADVERTISEMENTHe then made his return 7 months later, in May 2019, for the Chiefs in Super Rugby.Now, in 2020, he is the All Blacks’ man at the helm, a superb achievement for the 28-year-old.

The subject site is nestled on a corner in the back streets of Brunswick that enjoys a northern orientation which we chose to exploit. This house is a critique and a response to the suburban housing vernacular and the planning laws that influence them. An endeavour to provide an alternative affordable housing to conventional European influenced copies of copies that proliferate throughout our sub-urban landscape. An area much discussed and debated in the last decade within our profession. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThe aim of the project was not to re-engage and profess our manifesto on architectural and cultural regionalist issues and ideas; but mealy to demonstrate alternatives and possibilities using cost effective and generic standardised building methodologies. In this case, brick veneer, painted compressed sheet, Colorbond roofing and cladding, plasterboard etc. A make do with what you’ve have approach were critical architectural ideas are the platform for the design process. This project was an ongoing case study within our office and we seek to eliminate the idea that architectural ideas can only be achieved with big budgets and costly construction methods. Save this picture!sectionsOur response is an endeavour to establish an alternative architecture; another language for the average home! Another rhetoric critical of the arrangement and order of space, material, colour, scale, environmentally sustainability and urban engagement. The outcome seeks to raise questions rather than to dictate answers about the generic Australian House. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThis is a big house on a small block. Yet it is very small in comparison to an average family house. Although the site is just over 200m2, it consists of all the programs found in a conventional sub-urban housing on a ¼ acre block; 3 bed rooms, 2 ensuites and a bath room, a study, 2 separate living zones, a court yard, a double garage and a ‘back yard’. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThe plan is both open and closed, solid and void. The design intent was to compartmentalise the space with the flexibility of joining independent space such as the living with the court yard the dining with the back yard or as one big open continuos space. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThe design response was informed by the formal manipulation of a traditional ‘hipped roof’; stretched from the first to ground floor on 1 continues plane thereby relinquishing 2 separate building elements and roof lines for each level. The intervention also enabled the building to engage with the prominent corner highlighting the converging perspective to the entry and floating down pipe, or water feature and resulting in a multi-dimensional reading of the building at pedestrian level. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThe result, an ambiguity between scale and the demarcation between the ground and first floor. Where does the ground floor end and the first floor begin? The peeled back pop-up skylight sheds some light on the spatial conundrum. Bigness competes with the compressing warped roof to negotiate access from ground to first floor. Save this picture!plansThe house explores the physical and spatial constraints of suburban building as a discourse rather than a limitation with the roof being the predominate element sculptured by the mandatory ‘set back diagram’ dictated by local planning policies. A set back diagram literarily constructed, translated into the roof form. Our practice adopts the philosophy that constraints in what ever form they may be manifested; budgets, planning policies, contextual are part of the design process and can be used as part of the discourse and we seek for the critical architectural ideas as resolutions. Save this picture!Courtesy of kavellaris urban designThe space is as much about section as it is about plan as the two compete, whilst form dictates function. The northern orientation enabled us to integrate environmental sustainability through passive design and utilized the sloping roof as a method cross ventilating through the sky light and bi fold doors. The house incorporates important classical ideas as architectonic techniques instead of replicating the aesthetic by empathizing the point of entry with the converging roof ad fence lines. A double heighten entry, a dramatic staircase highlight the entry foyer.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: OMA Lecture “Three in One”ArticlesAuditorium and Cultural Facilities Competition winner / SOMOS ArquitectosArticles Share “COPY” Jones House / Kavellaris Urban Design “COPY” Jones House / Kavellaris Urban DesignSave this projectSaveJones House / Kavellaris Urban Designlast_img read more

National Milk Producers Lash Out at Farm Bill Dairy Compromise

first_img During the past four years that NMPF has worked to revise federal dairy policy, we have evaluated a variety of proposals against two key criteria: 1) does it provide an effective safety net for all of the nation’s dairy farmers?; and 2) does it protect taxpayers from the possibility of excessive program costs through the use of suitable incentives for those enrolled in the program? The resulting Dairy Security Act measure, contained in the farm bills approved by the House and Senate Agriculture Committees in 2012 and again in 2013, is a loss-prevention margin insurance program that meets those objectives. We were initially heartened that the four bi-partisan leaders of the House-Senate farm bill conference committee included the DSA language in the package that they were planning to present to the full conference. Despite the long-standing opposition to this plan from House Speaker John Boehner, we were confident we had the votes in the conference committee to defeat any amendment to strike the market stabilization program.Unfortunately, the Speaker’s threat that he would not allow a vote on a farm bill containing the market stabilization program has effectively served to kill our proposal within the committee.We are now engaged in discussions with agriculture committee staff on an alternative approach to creating a dairy safety net that would contain inducements to help achieve a supply-demand balance and prevent catastrophic milk price collapses like we experienced in 2009.At this point, it is conceivable that an alternative mechanism could be developed, relying upon adjustments to the program’s margin insurance payout structure and participant premium rates, among other options.  Any such approach must still offer an effective risk management tool to farmers, while containing suitable incentives to program enrollees to achieve cost controls. As always, the devil is in the details, and we will not support any program that does not effectively address the needs of our members throughout the U.S.  SHARE National Milk Producers Lash Out at Farm Bill Dairy Compromise SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articlePEDv: Stay Vigilant With Biosecurity and NutritionNext articleTaking Charge of Soil Health Wednesday in Vincennes Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jan 20, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News National Milk Producers Lash Out at Farm Bill Dairy Compromiselast_img read more

Detained since June 2016, he was sentenced in absentia because he has been hospitalized since April with a back ailment. “We condemn Nabeel Rajab’s unjustified conviction and demand his immediate release because his sole crime was to exercise his right to talk freely about human rights violations in his country,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.Rajab’s lawyers, Mohammed Al Jishi and Jaleel Al Sayed, had boycotted the trial since 14 June in protest against the fact that it was continuing despite Rajab’s inability to attend because of his hospitalization. They had requested an adjournment until he recovered. According to the information obtained by RSF, they are now planning to appeal.Rajab has been the target of judicial harassment since 2011 and has been jailed many times since 2012. There is a great deal of concern about his state of health, which has been exacerbated by his long spells in detention and above all by the conditions in Bahrain’s prisons.He was given a royal pardon and released for “health reasons” on 15 July 2015 but was arrested again on 13 June 2016 and has been held ever since. He currently has complications resulting from an operation to a haemorrhagic ulcer in his back in April.He is meanwhile also being prosecuted in connection with tweets criticizing the Arab military intervention in Yemen (deemed to have insulted the armed forces) and the conditions and use of torture in Bahrain’s Jaw prison. The next hearing in this case is scheduled for 7 August.14 journalists and citizen journalists are currently being detained in the Kingdom of Bahrain according to RSF ‘s barometer.
