first_img Reply Why does the legislature want to kill CRA’sWay back in 1969, the Florida Legislature passed the  Community Redevelopment Act. The new law was designed to prevent and eliminate slum and blighted areas by designating tax dollars from the neediest communities to go back into those areas. In 1993, Apopka created its own Community Redevelopment Agency for parts of South Apopka, but until recently it was mostly a project in mothballs.The Florida Economic Consortium on Violence and Crime (FEC) sponsored a lunch meeting on Wednesday at the Fran Carlton Center in Apopka to discuss the role of CRA’s. It was attended by Apopka residents, community leaders, and elected officials but mostly by people associated with local CRA’s like Apopka and Eatonville. The content focused on how to run a successful CRA, but the biggest takeaway was the alarming fact that the Florida Legislature has a bill in play that would halt any new CRA’s and take a hard look at the existing ones.House Speaker Richard Corcoran seems intent on ending CRA’s.“We have a bill on CRAs out there that puts a moratorium on any new ones,” he said. “And then we will see what we can do with the existing ones. We’re going to fight on all fronts.”Rod Love is the Chairman of the FEC.  According to Love, his role is to advocate and execute economic development initiatives statewide that impact across all spectrums of the community, business development, job training, affordable housing, social justice, and education.  More importantly and in concurrence with the message and mission of creating sustainable “urban” communities. He doesn’t want to see CRA’s taken down by Tallahassee.“CRA’s can be an extremely effective tool in combating the carnage taking place in urban communities by constructing partnerships that have a scientific understanding and direct knowledge of “slum and blight”.Greg Jackson is a local attorney and one of the three speakers at the event. He believes the scrutiny in the Legislature may be well deserved by some CRA’s.“I believe that various CRA’s have lost focus on the true intent and purpose for their existence. They became excited to see funds coming into areas that historically were a drain on taxpayers, and they thought “hey we are on to something.” In that excitement several, not all, forgot that CRA’s were established to address the “slum” and “blight” that contributes greatly to poor living conditions, as well as poor health and sanitation. The problem for CRA’s is that many legislators did not forget why they were started and neither did members of the community.”He does, however, hold out hope that CNA’s can right the ship and be a benefit to the communities that need them most.“My sincere belief is that CRA’s can get back on track and regain the confidence of the community and legislators by prioritizing their use of funds. For instance, for every three business or commercial based projects, there must be one project geared towards affordable housing, health or community policing initiatives. That is what I have been working so hard to get across, working with groups like FEC, which knows the true intent of Chapter 163, Part III, and is dedicated to working with CRA’s, developers and elected officials to improve our underserved communities within the constructs of the Community Redevelopment Act.”Both Love and Jackson have advice for the Apopka CRA, but they also are pleased to see it moving forward.“Unfortunately the Apopka CRA has been inactive for several years, which has been a detriment to “slum and blighted” communities due to the legislative lifespan of CRA’s continuing to run toward its expiration,” said Love. “In fairness to the present CRA board, I believe there is hope in making up for lost time by making prudent decisions that will be immediately impacting. I truly believe there are CRA board members that are sincere in wanting to live up to the legislative intent of CRA’s which is to impact “slum and blight”.Jackson wants to see the Apopka CRA update its plan, but also has a warning for the future of CRA’s.“It is good to see that it is active once again,” he said. “Because the CRA Plan is over two decades old, I believe it is fair to say it needs to be updated to be sure it meets the needs of the community within the CRA boundaries. One thing I hope does not happen is for the Apopka CRA to go down the path of other CRA’s that have become too “business-focused,” forgetting their true intent to address “slum” and “blighted” conditions. To neglect the intent and purpose of the Community Redevelopment Agency Act will surely attract the attention of the folks in Tallahassee who can literally eliminate CRA’s. Because there are some talented people working with the Apopka CRA, and active citizens like Rod Love, I believe that we will see a good mix of economic development projects with affordable housing programs, as well as initiatives to improve health and safety in the affected community. If not, I expect the full court press by the legislature, Florida Auditor General, grand juries and watchdog groups to kill CRA’s to continue.” TAGSCommunity Redevelopment AgencyCRAFlorida Economic Consortium on Violence and CrimeFRC Previous articleCONA President updates City CouncilNext articleOrange County Sheriff Demings sounds the alarm Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR A real CRAzy initiative would be for Apopka’s CRA board to change the Apopka downtown roofs and add turban tops to make them look like Moscow’s Red Square, to please all of our new Russian lovin’ Trump administration. Why Rubio could even come to town for a visit and request one of our old Apopka streets be renamed in honor of a Russian, just like his current proposed legislation to rename one of our Washington DC streets to a Russian man’s name…….LOL, and you thought I was CRAzy! Reply Reply Mama Mia Mama Mia Where did the COA get the money that was used in the past to put terra cotta colored rooftops along the downtown businesses, plus the decorative street lights along the business areas, and the new sidewalks, plus the biggie, the beautiful big palms that line the main entrances into the city, also new water lines?

I have read that he tends to act in partisan-like ways, but so far, I haven’t heard of anything that he has done that has outraged me. I think he is trying to stop waste, and I don’t see anything wrong with that. If he wants to stop CRAs, I believe he probably has a valid reason for wanting to do that.center_img March 4, 2017 at 2:43 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia Reply Correct me if I am wrong, but it is my understanding that part of the CRA boundary is on the north side of 441, but you never heard of that.

first_imgTwo wife-beaters with important positions in the White House — Rob Porter and David Sorensen — were forced to resign the week of Feb. 5 due to the social sea change led by the #MeToo Movement and Time’s Up. While the misogynist in chief immediately cried crocodile tears over Porter’s departure, days later he dismissively claimed he opposes domestic violence.Trump has a long public history of sexually assaulting and disrespecting women. That started in 1992 with his first spouse’s accusation of rape, which surfaced during divorce proceedings. Then there’s the demeaning “Access Hollywood” tape that exposed his con-man boasting about groping women’s genitals without permission. After that, more than a dozen women publicly stated that he had sexually molested, assaulted and harassed them.Trump’s ho-hum comment about opposing domestic violence, however, does not make up for the fact that, while he took office a year ago, he has not nominated a director to the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women nor a White House adviser on violence against women nor a State Department ambassador at large for global women’s issues.To make matters worse, in this year’s first budget proposal, 25 OVAW grants — which the previous administration had initiated to research ways to prevent violence against women — were slated to be dropped. But that was swiftly changed in the White House budget released Feb. 14: The OVAW’s $450 million budget was fully funded, with even a 1 percent increase.That raises the question: Will the 2013 reauthorization of the 1996 Violence Against Women Act, which extended the act to increase protections for LGBTQ survivors as well as Native women, remain after Trump nominates a “fox-guarding-the-hen-house” OVAW director? That’s highly unlikely given the reactionary administration’s recent regulation allowing health professionals, government authorities and business owners to discriminate against women and LGBTQ people by claiming so-called “religious or moral beliefs.”High rate of domestic violence linked to mass murderThe National Domestic Violence Hotline’s latest data show that on average 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the U.S. That’s more than 12 million women and men a year. Nearly 3 in 10 women (29 percent of the population) and 1 in 10 men (10 percent) have experienced physical violence and/or stalking by a partner and report a corresponding negative impact on their functioning.During their lifetime, 1 in 4 women (24.3 percent) and 1 in 7 men (13.8 percent) age 18 and older have been the victim of severe physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner. Women aged 18 to 34 experience the highest rates of intimate partner violence. Nearly 1 in 5 women (18.3 percent) and 1 in 71 men (1.4 percent) have been raped in their lifetime. Some 81 percent of women who experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner reported injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.The National Intimate Partner Sexual Violence Survey of 2010 reports that Black and Native women suffer higher rates of rape than white women, while Latinx women have higher rates of violence other than rape. Every day three women are killed by male intimate partners in the U.S. Half of all women murdered in this country are killed by men they know intimately.Obviously, this country has a profound problem with domestic violence. But especially when the abuser has guns. A Jan. 8 article in Workers World, titled “Link between domestic violence and mass murder,” reports domestic violence by an intimate partner provides a training ground for police murders and mass killings. A 2014 study by Everytown for Gun Safety reported that 59 percent of 100-plus mass shootings (four or more people killed) between January 2009 and June 2014 involved the murder of an intimate partner or family member.Though the Lautenberg Amendment to the VAWA was passed in 1997 to prohibit a married partner with a domestic violence conviction or a final restraining order from purchasing or possessing guns, social relations have changed so drastically in 20 years that now friends, relatives, former partners and stalkers must be included if they have a domestic violence misdemeanor charge or a preliminary restraining order.Though the murder of 17 people with a semiautomatic rifle at the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 15 was not directly related to domestic violence, it’s revealing that the shooter reportedly had complicated health problems and difficult family issues.That a young man with such serious problems did not get the help he needed from myriad community resources available shows how the very fabric of U.S. capitalist society is badly frayed. That the young man who posted on social media that he wanted to be “a professional school shooter” was not monitored by agencies allegedly charged with maintaining “public safety” is just another sign that U.S. capitalism is at a dead end.Trump does the ruling class’s bidding by cutting the “social safety net” for working and oppressed people. Is it any surprise that domestic violence is increasing, as is its link to mass murder?A follow-up article will take up the issue of why women subjected to ­domestic violence don’t trust law ­enforcement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Some, particularly state-owned publications, celebrated the death of the “tyrant”, while others lamented his death.“We are very concerned by the attitude of the Nuri al-Maliki government which is imposing more and more restrictions on the press,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The authorities should show more restraint so that pluralism of news and information remains a reality in Iraq.”The interior ministry decided on 1st January 2007 to shut down the offices of the al-Charkiya, in the capital’s Yarmuq neighbourhood for “incitement to sectarian violence” and “to hatred”. The same day the channel had showed film of several demonstrations opposed to the execution of Saddam Hussein, in Bagdad, Tikrit (province in which the president was born) and in the Jordanian capital, Amman, where his daughter, Raghad Hussein, lives. Elsewhere, presenters on public al-Iraqiya condemned “Iraqi and Arab TV channels showing sympathy for the tyrant Saddam Hussein”. Al-Charkiya is still broadcasting from its studios in Dubai and Amman.The Iraqi authorities already ordered the closure, on 5 November 2006, of TV stations al-Zaura and Salah-Eddin for showing footage of demonstrators brandishing pictures of the former president and protesting at his death sentence. Both stations were accused of inciting sectarian violence and have still not been allowed to resume broadcasting.Elsewhere, Reporters Without Borders has learned of the murder, on 29 December 2006, of the journalist Akil Sarhan, of sports TV channel al-Riyadia (member of the Iraqi media Network). His car was attacked by an armed group as he drove to work and he was killed on the spot. His assailants escaped.

first_imgFacebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Dr Ed Walsh surveys the final work on the Ilen after the last plank was laid.THEY laid the last plank, and so a ship was rebuilt.Last Saturday, the long tradition of wooden shipbuilding reached a significant milestone when the final deck plank on the sailing vessel Ilen was laid at a traditional ceremony hosted by the Limerick Ilen Project.The project, whose primary goal was to bring Ireland’s sole surviving wooden sailing ship back to Limerick, was completed in fine style after six years of education and practice in a near forgotten craft.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In 1926, the Ilen which was Ireland’s sole surviving wooden sailing ship, sailed from Limerick to an active 70 year working life in the South Atlantic. The completion of the new all-weather deck last weekend marked the final stage of her remarkable return to her home port.The Illen project organisers say that the rebuild highlights the high quality of the materials used, the exemplary craftsmanship and, most significantly, the marine educational role the vessel will play when she goes into operation on the Shannon Estuary, and beyond, from her new home port.Brother Anthony Keane of Glenstal Abbey, a key promoter of the Ilen Project, officiated at the ceremony and said that what has been achieved so far showed that there was not only a great work ethic in the Ilen Project but also a spiritual commitment to the work being done.“This is an amazing act of faith and commitment come to fruition. This boat, and the people involved with it, rock. It is heading for the sea, like a salmon, and it will not be stopped, even if some of the financial people have still to solve their problems of calculus and apply their mathematics.”Guest speaker at the ceremony was acclaimed film maker Lord David Puttnam who said that “the project underlined what could be done by a determined community.“It also demonstrated that the skills involved and which were being taught, were the skills that younger people could learn, use and remain in their community, without having to leave, and thus strengthen communities. This is a message from the Ilen project.”Dr Edward Walsh, founding president of the University of Limerick, told of how he had, at the outset of the project, exhorted all to simply “go ahead and buy the boat” and “pretend” that the money was there. It was a now a source of great pride for him to see how it had advanced so far.

Snoodle.“She sent us pictures of Snoodle and told us all the things he was doing,” Landon said.But Snoodle was being a good elf.“Some elves get in trouble but Snoodle’s a good elf,” Connor said.But Snoodle did give their mom a few anxious moments.He got in the ice bucket but didn’t stay too long. It was cold in there.“One morning, I couldn’t find Snoodle and looked everywhere,” Dana said. “I finally found him in the big Christmas tree in the hotel lobby. He loves Christmas decorations and he was right in there among them.”Knowing that Snoodle was in the Christmas tree in the busy hotel lobby, Landon and Connor got a little worried.“If somebody had touched him, he would have lost his magic,” Connor said.But their mom assured them that Snoodle could take care of himself.“I went downtown to see the National Christmas Tree and Snoodle went along,” Dana said. “He brought back Christmas ornaments for the boys that he got in Washington and they were excited about those. When it was time to leave for home, Dana left Snoodle sitting on the windowsill looking out at the city.“He had a good time but I think he missed being home,” Dana said.Snoodle kept Dana Thrash from being lonely while she was away from home. But Landon and Connor missed them both.Snoodle has been an annual Christmas guest in the Thrash home since 2008. And each Christmas Eve when Santa Claus comes to see Landon and Connor, Snoodle hops on Santa’s sleigh and goes back to his home at the North Pole.The brothers said they are always sad for Snoodle to leave but they know that, next year on the day after Thanksgiving, Snoodle will be back on the “shelf” at the Thrash home and, boy, will Landon and Connor be glad to see that little elf that is a good as good can be.Editor’s Note: The Messenger will feature an elf story each day until Christmas. Those who have scout elves visiting this Christmas season are invited to send their story and a photo to [email protected] so it can be shared for others to enjoy. By Jaine Treadwell When a family adopts an elf and gives it a name, the elf receives its Christmas magic so it can fly to the North Pole each night to give Santa its up to the minute scouting report. The elf returns the next day to keep watch.But there are a couple of rules that must be followed when an Elf on the Shelf is in the house. The elf cannot be touched or it will lose its magical powers. And, the elf cannot speak or move while anyone is awake. It must be quiet and look and listen.Landon said that the first thing he and Connor do as soon as they wake up every morning is look for Snoodle.
