AHS Candidate Debate Ends With Insults and Accusations

first_img Same old, same old, Apopka Election Trickery. Trying to deceive, and get Democrat and Independent voters confused! Shame on Apopka Critic! I thought you were above that. I should have known! Democrats and Independents go and vote on Tuesday, March 15, and your vote WILL COUNT! Listen to Apopka Critic, Sammy Ruth’s buddy, and your vote will not be cast because this coming Thursday will be too late, the election will be over!!!! Way to go you scoundrels! Reply March 15, 2016 at 5:49 pm Orange County “ran out” of ballots, yep, that is what they said! They have a fix for this, however, calling Governor Rick Scott……!!!

Google voter suppression on the google search bar, and go to the Wikipedia source. It will tell all about voter suppression. Even a minor dirty trick is in reality, voter suppression. So you will know. It also talks about how some robo calls have been used in the past, as voter suppression. All types of tricks. I take my voting seriously, because I know how voting for a bad person, that is given power, is a dangerous thing, be it local, state, or federal level. Even signing petitions for a person to be allowed to run, and be placed on the ballot, where a person lists NPA on the petition, but are listed on official registration papers of a certain political party, and are not NPA. These sort of tricks, and lots and lots of others. While you all are sitting around the breakfast tables at your local hangouts, laughing and thumbs upping, and think it is so hilarious, it is not, and I will continue to keep up the guard for anything I see, read, or hear that is not right or is unjust, in this election, or any other election. This is also why I am a very late voter, and not a early voter! So you will know. Tenita Reid Kyle, Mr. Arrowsmith, and Mr. Bankson both has a lot of big signs around town, however their signs are on private property, even if they are on fences, if I see one of theirs I will tell them. But I haven’t. Yours signs, that I have fussed about, are the locations where you, or someone from your camp, have placed on government property, either Orange County property, Orange County School ground property, or City of Apopka Property. That is why I am fussing about your signs. I have told you the locations, and you or someone else, has removed them, except the one that is still up across from Pines of Wekiva subdivision on Rock Springs Road. It is not suppose to be attached to the Orange County Property which is the guard rails of the bike trail. That is all. A giant Kyle Becker sign is posted on ORANGE COUNTY GOVERNMENT PROPERTY on the WEST ORANGE TRAIL GUARD RAILINGS in front of the Pines of Wekiva subdivision along Rock Springs Road!!!!!!!!! Kyle, you need to come and remove your campaign sign, you are in violation of the election laws regarding campaign signs!!!!!!!!!! Move it, or lose it!!!!!!!!!! ASAP!!!!!!!!!! Are the rules different for you, Kyle, because you have someone’s blessings from the Orange County School System on your side? Must be nice to buy friends in high places, with special interest money!!!!!!!!!! I wonder who in the world is that paid friend, with such powerful political clout is, that you can post signs all over town, on government property?????? All together, let’s sing, “I’ve got friends in high places.” You tube. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Reply 14 COMMENTS Seat 4 candidates got too hostile, all of them. Commission Arrowsmith was attacked for his length of service, and that is not right. A person has to manage to get elected, it is not automatic, like appointed for life, like the supreme court justices. No easy chore. The people elect and re-elect him. What is wrong with that? Experience is a definite plus, not a minus. And other stuff, he was accused of that he can’t be solely responsible for. That’s not right.Young Kim was attacked for code enforcement violations on his business. That was not right. There was a reference about ignorance. That was not right. I have talked with Young Kim and he speaks German, English, Spanish, Korean, and French , no easy chore.Kyle Becker was attacked for not having community service. That was not right. To achieve an eagle scout, you have to jump through a lot of hoops, doing community things, and projects. So that was not right, either.You all can take your boxing gloves off soon. The dust will settle. I wish you all well on your campaigns. Tenita Reid March 13, 2016 at 7:01 pm Tenita Reid Reply March 13, 2016 at 6:54 pm March 13, 2016 at 11:13 am March 14, 2016 at 8:19 pm Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You lost me on the sign issue. Bill Arrowsmith and Doug Bankson have signs on fences everywhere. I finally get a few around town and you blame me. Elections are won on issues and not signs. Experience doesn’t count for much if it hasn’t produced anything. Campaigning is hard work knocking on doors and presenting a different vision for Apopka. We need to make Apopka better and it is fine to debate how to get that done. Mr. Arrowsmith lacks the interest to try to press on past “demographics” like Winter Garden, Mt. Dora and Sanford have done. I believe people want someone who will make it happen.. Reply March 13, 2016 at 11:34 pm March 13, 2016 at 5:19 pm Talk about factually inaccurate………..I just got off of the Apopka Critic website. He posted all the Apopka City Council candidates pictures and wished them all good luck. He then went on and posted THAT REMEMER REPUBLICANS VOTE TUESDAY AND DEMOCRATS VOTE THE FOLLOWING THURSDAY!!!!!!!! Sorry, Apopka Critic but either you are very misinformed, or either very slick, trying to “throw” the election. Which is it, Apopka Critic? Everybody votes Tuesday! Democrat, Republican and others!!! Do not believe Apopka Critic on this or your vote will not count, if you wait to vote on Thursday!!!!! March 13, 2016 at 4:53 pm Please enter your comment!

Thinks voter suppression is funny. How’s your chad hangin’, Apopka Critic? I’m surprised Apopka Critic didn’t say only super voters could vote on Tuesday, and all other registered voters who qualified could not could vote. Oh, that’s right, that wasn’t a joke, it actually did happen at the polls, for one of Apopka’s election decisions! I guess I’m just too sensitive, Apopka Critic, like your buddy, Sammy Ruth. I think Young Kim had some good ideas about fixing up Apopka, in the older part of downtown. He talked at the AHS debate about creating an art district, cafes, and improving safety on the bike trail. He said many people are afraid to use the bike trail, because of the crime areas, that it goes through. He spoke also of using the bike trail at night, and that threw me for a loop, as I would not think of using that bike trail at night, but then I thought, maybe others do use it at night. That has got me to thinking, do people really use it at night, through those high crime areas? Not good, if they do! He also wanted some programs to help protect young children and women, whatever those programs are. Sounds reasonable to me. Tenita Reid Tenita Reid March 14, 2016 at 9:19 am Tenita Reid The Anatomy of Fear Reply I just love this “non-partisan” race in Apopka. 6 of 6 total are Republicans. What a choice. The robo calls from PACs going out claim there is only 1 who is Republican, in this ” non-partisan” race. Not so funny, is it, when Republicans are tricked by Republicans? Huh? Who are you all blaming, the PACs, or de’ boogey man? Tenita Reid Reply Election Day for the Apopka City Commission seats #3 and #4 is only four days away. Already over 4,400 Apopkans have voted early or absentee. It is now clear that this will be the largest turnout for a Municipal election in Apopka history. Despite the large pre-election day numbers there was a good turnout for the AHS Candidate Debate sponsored by the Apopka Chamber of Commerce and hosted by The Apopka High School Debate Team on Thursday night.With skill and obvious research of the issues, the AHS Debate Team conducted a very effective and substantive debate. They asked pertinent questions, and kept it in control. Even when tempers flared, they were able to stay in charge.But at the end of a long and hard fought campaign, tempers were bound to flare up sooner or later.The Seat #3 debate was a cordial affair. Commissioner Sam Ruth focused his attention to the Apopka High students in attendance and stressed the need for them to get involved with the political process. He joked about bears in his backyard and how cool that was.Pastor Doug Bankson joked about eating the occasional cheeseburger, but to keep fast food in moderation.Alice Nolan talked about her love of nature and Apopka and urged the students to stay involved.Nothing to see here folks…The Seat #4 debate provided the fireworks for the evening.Young Kim took exception with Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith on a question about downtown improvement.“I’m going to make a polite attack on Mr. Arrowsmith. He had almost 40 years to fix this. Why have we seen so much blight in all the streets and unfinished streets where people can’t walk in certain areas? I just have to ask that question.”Arrowsmith’s reply shocked the audience.“I don’t consider it an attack, I consider it ignorance. You make a statement like that and you’ve been in business for 18 years in this community and your used furniture store has had code violations and you’ve done nothing to answer them. You’ve answered your own question.”Kim responded with another attack.“There’s this thing called the Community Restoration Project. It started in 1993. You were running against Mrs. McQueen. It’s been 23 years and nothing has happened. He took tax monies from small business owners and funneled it into the UCF Incubator… something completely illegal. You were supposed to use that money for blighted areas.”Arrowsmith again responded with a non-answer.“My high school english teacher always told me you can’t argue with ignorance.”In closing remarks Arrowsmith made a final point that seemed to upset Becker.“Community service is what qualifies you for public service. You need to know the people. You need to know the office, the organizations, the complete community to run for public office,” he said.“Listen to the issues. Learn what the issues are and vote with your head.”Becker closed the evening with an attack on Arrowsmith.“In terms of community service, nowhere in the charter does it say you have to have a certain resume’ to run for office. I’m a taxpayer. I’m charitable. I’m entitled as anyone on this stage to be a public servant and represent the city. And I find it funny that he brings up integrity issues when he goes around town saying he was the lone vote against the Martin’s Pond issue…that’s factually inaccurate. Another factual inaccuracy is a robocall saying he is the only Republican candidate. Trying to win votes that way. That’s not very honest.”The AHS Candidate Debate ended on that note.  Apparently the rule allowing a candidate to respond to an attack did not apply to closing statements. Kyle Becker, it is Election Day today, and I am posting this to let you know your big campaign banner is still tied to Orange County Property! Are the campaign election sign rules different for Kyle Becker? Do you have someone’s blessing to tie your big banners on Orange County Property by someone connected with Orange County Government? Who in the world would that be? It must be nice to have such friends in high places. I have drove by the Orange County Service building on Rock Springs Road, and there are multitudes of campaigners and campaign signs there near the voting polling place, but YOURS IS THE ONLY ONE POSTED ON ORANGE COUNTY PROPERTY TIED TO THE BIKE TRAIL GUARDRAILS ALONG THE WEST ORANGE TRAIL! You need to remove it, and place yours where the other candidates have their signs. Who do you think you are? Or, are you planning on leaving your banner there for Thursday’s vote??????? Kyle, in your closing statement at the AHS debate, you jumped on the subject of the robo calls, going out to the households, and you said that the robo calls indicated to the people, that Mr. Arrowsmith was the only republican candidate, and you seemed upset about it. Those robo calls are made by the PACs, and are paid for by the PACs, and whether you like them or not, you cannot control the PAC robo calls. It is just the way it is. It does not mean Mr. Arrowsmith approved them. I wanted you to know that. He wasn’t given the opportunity to respond to your closing statement. Also, this is supposed to be a non-partisan race, so why should that bother you? I vote as if it is non-partisan, which is how it is suppose to be. I know what party the candidates belong to, and it does not bother me. Why does it bother you so much, in a non-partisan race?

UK online advertising began 10 years ago this week

first_imgSo, new media it certainly isn’t, but how experienced is your organisation in advertising online? Do you know what works and what doesn’t? While there is a plethora of different types of online advertising now ranging from banner ads, to targeted text ads in e-mail newsletters, pop-ups, pop-unders, interstitials, affiliate marketing programmes, and contextual keyword-based adverts such as those on Overture and Google, it must be noted that very few charities have tested anything but a small number of these opportunities.The banner ad’s death has been foretold many times, but it can still work when targeted well. However, UK Fundraising has reported on at least two top 20 UK charities only starting to test banner ads for the first time this year – 2004. While being at the bleeding edge of advertising is not part of a charity’s brief, testing a new, low-cost and global medium at some point in its first 10 years surely makes fundraising sense?Ten years on, there is cause for optimism. The number of charities that are using Google’s AdSense tool to promote themselves is heartening. Low-cost with budget control and good reporting options, it is an ideal tool for charities to experiment with.

Not how they drew it up: Horned Frogs overcome four interceptions to win Cheez-It Bowl 10-7 over Golden Bears

Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com printThe Horned Frogs win their 11th bowl game in the Patterson era. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comAfter a season where it seemed like everything that could go wrong for TCU football did, the Horned Frogs overcame four interceptions to win the Cheez-It Bowl 10-7 over California in overtime.“This game defined our whole season,” head coach Gary Patterson said of what has been the craziest bowl game of the year to date.Four different quarterbacks saw action for the two teams, combining for nine interceptions in the game. The ball was punted 15 times between the two squads.TCU quarterback Grayson Muehlstein threw four of those interceptions, while finishing just 7-for-20 for 28 passing yards.To make up for the Horned Frogs’ lack of a passing attack, running back Sewo Olonilua used 32 carries to gain a career-high 194 yards. The junior scored TCU’s lone touchdown on a one-yard run to end the third quarter.“If he’ll [Olonilua] keep running like that, someday, he’ll make a lot of money,” Patterson said.Chase Garbers started the game at quarterback for Cal, but he was replaced midway through the game by fifth-year senior Chase Forrest. Garbers ran in the first touchdown of the game early in the first quarter but threw three interceptions in a span of five drives and was benched.Cornerback Julius Lewis picked off the first of five interceptions thrown by California in the game. Photo courtesy of USAToday.comForrest finished with two interceptions, the second of which was picked off in overtime by TCU linebacker Jawuan Johnson.  Johnson came just five yards short of ending the game on his return, as he was tripped up after an 84-yard return.The five interceptions by the TCU defense tied the single-game high in the Gary Patterson era.The Horned Frogs capitalized on their next possession, marching to the Golden Bears’ 10-yard line before Jonathon Song’s 27-yard field goal won the game for TCU.Jonathon Song nailed a 27-yard field goal to win the game 10-7 for TCU. Photo courtesy of OregonLive.comThe Horned Frogs had missed a chance to win the game at the end of regulation when Cole Bunce’s 44-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left, sending the game into overtime.After averaging just under 90 receiving yards per game this season, second team All-Big 12 wide receiver Jalen Reagor finished without a catch in the contest. One of the most dynamic players in the country, Reagor made his presence known on special teams, totaling 98 return yards, including a 58-yard punt return in the third quarter that set up the Olonilua touchdown.The win gives TCU its 15th winning season and 11th bowl win in Patterson’s 18 years as head coach.“A few weeks ago, we were 4-6,” Patterson said.  “To be able to finish with a winning season for these seniors is a cool thing.” Colin Post Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebook Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebook Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Linkedin Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Twitter ReddIt Linkedin Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

Treasury Lowers Q1 Borrowing Estimate by $54 Billion

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Borrowing Estimates Government U.S. Department of Treasury 2015-02-02 Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The U.S. Department of Treasury’s borrowing estimate for the first quarter of 2015 is about 25 percent lower than its original prediction issued two months ago, according to an announcement from Treasury released Monday.Assuming a balance of $100 billion at the end of March, Treasury said it expects to issue $155 billion in net marketable debt for the period starting January 1, 2015, and ending March 31, 2015. That figure is $54 billion lower than the original estimate of $209 billion (assuming the same end-of-March cash balance of $100 billion) which Treasury released in November.Treasury attributes the lower borrowing to changes in cash balance assumptions and lower outlays, according to the announcement.For the second quarter of 2015, Treasury said assuming a cash balance of $150 billion at the end of June, it expects to pay down $7 billion in net marketable debt.At the end of the fourth quarter of 2014, Treasury had a cash balance of $223 billion, after issuing $227 billion in net marketable debt during the quarter. Treasury had about $232 billion in net marketable debt at the end of November 2014, at which time it assumed a cash balance of $200 billion by the end of December.Treasury said a lower financing need and more cash from other sources, partially offset by a higher ending cash balance for the quarter, were responsible for the decrease in borrowing for Q4 2014.

The Petitioners had approached the High Court against the new scheme introduced by the University whereby a final year student, who has not cleared any examination from the first to fourth semesters, may appear for those examinations during the “regular examination” held at the end of each term. The court also noted in the order that the Delhi University has to file its affidavit within one week, after that no further opportunity will be given. In the last date of hearing, the court had asked the University to submit an affidavit stating the following: Was there a system of holding supplementary examinations for odd semesters for final semester students along with the examination for the final semester and if so when was the same discontinued? Whether DU requires any approval from the Bar Council of India for holding the Supplementary examinations and if so, whether it has received the same for the new system? The Petitioners in this case are being represented by Advocate Amit Kumar Sharma.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
