first_img Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here A little less than four months ago, violence erupted in South Apopka with three shooting deaths of residents in the span of eight days. In response to that, a group of concerned citizens formed the Apopka Community Task Force on Violence. Typically a task force is the creation of an elected official or a governing body, but this grass roots effort seemed to take shape in an almost organic nature.The final Apopka Community Task Force on Violence meeting is tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the John Bridges Center located at 445 West 13th Street in Apopka.The event is entitled: Final Community Listening MeetingIt’s facilitated by Co-Chairs Rod Love and Ken Wilson, who are hoping for an interactive workshop tonight, driven by the community who will identify the problems and develop proposed solutions to be submitted to area leaders to address community based needs, i.e., mentoring programs, crime prevention activities, job coaching and placement as well gender specific services for males and females, according to Love.“The community has a role and a responsibility to play in this issue,” said Love. “But I think our elected officials have a role to play as well. I’m hoping to conclude this task force with a lot of great ideas and solutions tonight…just as we have gotten at every event throughout the three months of our work.”Tracy Maxwell, a retired military trainer, is an expert in the area of enhancing and developing alternative programs for youth.  He will open the evening with a motivational speech. Maxwell is a dynamic and charismatic speaker based in Ocala, according to Love.Dr. Randy Nelson, a researcher and professor at Bethune-Cookman University, will also speak. Dr. Nelson is a nationally recognized law enforcement trainer in the area of community and law enforcement engagement techniques.The Task Force is encouraging clergy and civic leaders to come out and participate with constituents and hear their concerns as well as their proposed solutions.

4 quick tips to keep you safe on the road

No Comments

first_img Please enter your name here The warmer weather means longer days, backyard barbecues and weekends away. Before setting out on the open road, make sure you and your vehicle are ready for the journey ahead. Hankook Tire took a look at driving trends and behaviors to identify what drivers do (or forget to do) to keep safe on the road this season.1. Keep your eyes on the road.One of the easiest ways to avoid accidents, wrong turns or other highway mishaps is to stay focused. Cell phones are most often responsible for distracted driving, according to the latest Hankook Tire Gauge Index. One-third (33 percent) of Americans regularly take phone calls while on the road, and one in 10 drivers (11 percent) admit to texting while driving. To help put this risk into perspective, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports texting while driving on the highway is equivalent to driving blindfolded for the length of an entire football field. Promising news for drivers is that the Gauge also found that nearly one-half (49 percent) of drivers use Bluetooth, dictation or do-not-disturb features while driving to maintain better focus while on the road.2. Take advantage of tech.As automotive technology continues to advance, cars are constantly updated with the latest and greatest to make your time behind the wheel more comfortable, more efficient and safer. Over one-third, (34 percent) of drivers reported their vehicles are equipped with a rearview camera, and 26 percent have adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to maintain a safe driving distance. While 73 percent of Americans find these enhanced safety features very useful, the Gauge Index found that more than half (57 percent) of drivers don’t actually use them. Regardless of the features in your car, it’s important to not let the summer fun distract you from checking rear and side view mirrors, blind spots and speed.3. Don’t tread lightly.Before a road trip, most people fill up the tank, gather snacks and make sure the kids are set up with movies and games. What about your tires? Americans are mostly likely to check the condition of their tires if they appear to look low or uneven (65 percent) or if a warning light appears (49 percent).Even if not prompted by a warning light or unusual sounds, always double check your tires’ air pressure and tread depth before an extended trip, as healthy tires improve gas mileage and save money at the pump. In addition to the financial benefits of healthy tires, Americans also recognize the importance of tire tread in providing safety and control, as 75 percent of drivers think about how effective their tire tread is when driving through heavy rain, and 61 percent are mindful of their tread when driving on a hairpin turn. Additionally, close to one-fifth (18 percent) of Americans believe enhanced tire grip provides more safety on tough turns than wider lanes, reduced speed limits or road sign warnings.4. Who ya’ gonna call?Even the most prepared and proactive drivers can end up on the side of the road because of unforeseen driving events. Whether it’s a flat tire, dead battery or overheated engine, 41 percent of Americans listed an auto club as their first phone call, followed by their significant other at 27 percent, according to the Gauge Index. Only 3 percent of respondents recognized that their first call should be to local authorities, who can update traffic information, create a safe roadside situation and send the proper help to get you back on the road safely.By following these quick tips and guidelines to safety, you can go full steam ahead to wherever your destination this summer may be!

Apopka gardeners can celebrate Plant of the Month: Seminole Pumpkin

No Comments

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Focus on Gardening: Plant of the MonthFrom University of Florida (UF), Institute of Food and Agriculture SciencesFor the green thumbs and garden-dreamers alike, every month we’ll highlight a UF / IFAS feature plant that deserves a spotlight in Florida-friendly gardening.Seminole Pumpkin Please enter your name here Seminole pumpkins. UF/IFAS Photo: Sally Lanigan.Traditionally grown by the Calusa, Creek, and Miccosukee peoples, Seminole pumpkins remain one of the tastiest and most reliable pumpkins for Florida gardens. The Seminole people gave the name “Chassahowitza” to a region on the gulf in Southwest Florida. The name means “pumpkin hanging place.” It’s likely that the pumpkins they were referring to were Seminole pumpkins, or a related variety.Gardeners in the Sunshine State sometimes struggle to find vegetables that will make it through our relentless summer heat. Florida’s Seminole pumpkins just may be the answer to their search!CharacteristicsSeminole pumpkins are a cultivated variety (cultivar) of Cucurbita moschata. Other notable cultivars of this species include butternut squash and calabaza. While generally rounded and dull orange, Seminole pumpkins come in a variety of shapes and colors. Sometimes this is the result of cross-pollination with nearby butternut squash or another member of their species. Regardless, the inner flesh of Seminole pumpkin is orange, similar to butternut squash, but sweeter. The flesh is firmer and less fibrous than that of a traditional jack-o-lantern pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo). Mature fruits generally weigh 6 to 12 pounds.Seminole pumpkins vary in shape and size, but inside the sweet, pumpkiny flavor is all the same. Credit: UF/IFASTo preserve their harvest of Seminole pumpkins, aboriginal Floridians sliced and dried the fruit. Thanks to their thick skin, Seminole pumpkins can be stored whole for a couple of months, even in Florida’s humid climate. In a dry location with good ventilation, they can be stored for up to a year. The Anatomy of Fear Seminole pumpkin makes an excellent substitute for pumpkin or butternut squash when cooking. You don’t have to limit yourself to eating the flesh of these pumpkins, either. Young, green fruits can be harvested and eaten without peeling. The beautiful yellow flowers are also edible raw, stuffed, or even fried.Planting and CareGardeners in frost-free areas of the state have the opportunity to plant Seminole pumpkin between August and March. In North and Central Florida, seeds can be planted in the spring. This is usually between February and April, but could be as late as July if you can commit yourself to vigilant pest management. Many gardeners choose to plant late, knowing that it is one of the few veggies that can survive a harsh Florida summer. Some gardeners also plant in the fall, but only do so if you have 120 days left before the first frost is expected.As with other squashes, we recommend direct-seeding in an area that gets 6-8 hours of direct sunlight. These productive vines can grow to 25 feet or more, so give them room to spread. The Seminole people planted the vines below trees, which served as natural trellises. In your garden the vines will spread widely. Space the plants 4 feet apart, with rows 6-9 feet apart or install a trellis for the vines to climb.Seminole pumpkins require pollination of the female flowers (the ones with a round base) to produce fruit. Plant some flowers nearby to encourage pollinators to visit your pumpkins. Within three to four months of planting you should be ready to pick the first Seminole pumpkins. They are mature when the color ripens to a sandy orange. Once harvested, store them in a cool, dry place. Your vine should continue producing fruit up until the first frost of the year.Seminole pumpkins take the summer heat and humidity in stride and require little maintenance; some gardeners even claim they thrive on neglect. As your vines grow, they may become weighed down by the pumpkins — this is normal for fruiting vines and not something to worry about. Pumpkins that grow hanging from the vine are usually tear-drop shaped, while fruit that develops on the ground more closely resembles a traditional pumpkins.Seminole pumpkin blossoms are usually bee-pollinated, but manual pollination is possible, too. UF/IFAS Photo: Sally Lanigan.You should also keep an eye out for caterpillar infestations as the weather warms up. Scout frequently, paying special attention to the newest leaves. If you notice that your plants are being chewed by caterpillars, you can hand pick off the pests or use biological pesticides like Bt.While these plants don’t suffer from many of the usual summer vegetable pests and diseases, they are not pest free. Gummy stem blight occurs occasionally. You can help prevent this fungal disease by keeping mulch away from the base of your vine and watering only in the early morning.If you need more information on growing this delicious—and often forgotten—traditional Florida vegetable, contact your county Extension office.Apopka UF/ IFAS LocationUF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research & Education Center2725 S.

first_imgMonday Aug 3, 2009 Auckland thrashed by Hawkes Bay in the Air New Zealand Cup Hawkes Bay thrashed Auckland on the weekend as their 2009 Air New Zealand Cup campaigns got underway at Mclean Park in Napier.Auckland got hammered 47-13 as they were outscored by five tries to one, showing a lack of experience and depth in their opening match of the tournament.With the bonus point win, Hawkes Bay ended 35 years without success against Auckland, fully justifying the support of their committed fans.The Magpies streaked off to a 13-0 lead in the firstly thanks to two Matt Berquist penalties and an excellent try from impressive youngster Zac Guildford.Auckland came back with a converted try and two penalties from Daniel Bowden, levelling the scores before Karl Lowe crossed for Hawkes Bay to give them a 20-13 lead at halftime.The Magpies took control in the second half and went further ahead with penalties from Berquist, and tries to Thomas Waldrom, Sona Taumalolo, and Jason Kupa to round off the one sided victory.Auckland face Canterbury next weekend at Eden Park, in what should prove to be another huge challenge for them.

Montpellier score four great tries against Agen at Stade Armandie

No Comments

first_imgTuesday Sep 21, 2010 Montpellier score four great tries against Agen at Stade Armandie Montpellier continued their positive start under Fabien Galthi as they scored some fantastic tries on their way to thumping Agen 35-6 in the Top 14 on Friday. They scored four very well taken tries, with the first in particular a classic.They started well with what is probably the try of the match, as Fulgence Ouedraogo got on the end of a wonderful flowing move that had some incredibly neat touches with offloads both in and before contact.The Montpellier captain scored again later as he combined with Francoi Trinh-Duc again, the flyhalf himself having scored too. In the second half wing Tomoci Nagusa also scored a neatly taken try as he stepped his way through the traffic with ease.Ouedraogo has said it was their best game of the season, adding that the atmosphere within the camp is at an all time high, a far cry from the past where he said at times he found it difficult to drag himself to training.“Here we go with a smile, with joy. We train seriously, and apply ourselves. At Montpellier, we’ve known seasons when there were a lot of bad things going on around us. That’s why now you see so much pleasure and joy.“There is a lot of momentum. That’s has been taught and we must continue to live it. It makes for fun off the field, and we then communicate it to the fans,” he said.Montpellier now look like they could well be serious title contenders if they keep this up. They have moved up to second on the table, one point behind Racing Metro, while Agen sit second from the bottom and continue to struggle.

James Simpson-Daniel’s individual effort against Agen

No Comments

first_imgWednesday Feb 2, 2011 James Simpson-Daniel’s individual effort against Agen Try scoring machine James Simpson-Daniel had a good game for the Saxons this past weekend, and scored this well taken try against Agen a few weeks back. Hes stuck his hand up for England selection, but a regular senior side slot has always eluded him.The 28 year old has recently signed an extension on his Gloucester contract, which means hell be at the club for another three years. His form this season has been great, leading to talk that hed fit in nicely with the current England mindset.Hes been prolific of late and perhaps now is the time for Martin Johnson to give him a run, with the World Cup in mind later in the year. Its a good position to be in for England though, who have a pretty strong back three currently as it is.With just ten caps to his name and a reputation as being too injury prone for Test rugby, Simpson-Daniel will be hoping that this year brings a change to the perception.“England have told me that Im still on their radar,” he said.“If I werent in their thoughts I guess I wouldnt even be here. The big picture for me is the World Cup. This is the last opportunity for me to make it and its my main goal.”If a string of injuries hit England, you can be sure Sinbad will be ready. His fine finishing has been there for all to see this season, and while the tackling by Agen was pretty poor for this try, its a nice example of what hes capable of in a little space. :: Related Posts :: Matt Banahan launches into James Simpson-Daniel Outstanding James Simpson-Daniel try vs the Barbarians in 2002 Time: 01:32ADVERTISEMENT 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.

Incredible try from Bath prop Anthony Perenise

No Comments

first_imgSaturday Jan 28, 2012 Incredible try from Bath prop Anthony Perenise Bath scored five tries as they thumped Northampton Saints 46-14 with a bonus point win in the LV= Cup, setting them up nicely for a home semi final. One of the tries of the game was this outstanding effort from prop Anthony Perenise. If you’ve been visiting the site for a while you’ll know that whenever a prop scores a great try, you’ll usually be able to see it featured and archived here. This one is one of the better efforts and will no doubt be a popular inclusion.Samoan Perenise, who played for his country at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand recently, weighs in at close to 120kg so once he gathers a bit of speed, will always be tricky to bring down. On this occasion he stepped a defender and accelerated away for a wonderful try.In fact in this game each member of the front row scored, with Ross Batty and Charlie Beech also crossing. Saints were missing 10 players to the England Saxons, so were weakened already and following their heavy Heineken Cup loss to Munster last weekend, proved no match for the home side.World Cup winner Stephen Donald also scored and Olly Barkley kicked 21 points, but the moment of the game was no doubt this incredible try from the former Hurricanes and Hawkes Bay tank.View the related posts below the video for more outstanding efforts from front rowersADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Sharks charge into Super Rugby Final after win over the Stormers

No Comments

first_imgThursday Aug 2, 2012 The Sharks charge into Super Rugby Final after win over the Stormers The Sharks are clocking up the mileage as this week they’ve flown to New Zealand to face the Chiefs in the Super Rugby Final. The Durban boys beat the Stormers 26-19 at Newlands, so here is a look at the match highlights if you missed them. If the Sharks are to win this coming weekend it will mean they would have beaten all three conference winners, namely the Reds, the Stormers, and the Chiefs. It is an uphill challenge though as the fatigue of travel will surely come into play soon.One thing we have seen from this side though is their grim determination, backed up by a pack that boasts a whole host of Springbok experience, and young talent. Out wide they have speed to burn and have shown that their defensive patterns are right up there with the best of them.At number ten they hold somewhat of a trumpcard, as Frenchman Freddie Michalak has been in superb form of late, and with enough go forward ball, can control a game.A boost to the side is the return of Springbok fullback Patrick Lambie, while impressive center Tim Whitehead has dropped out with a hand injury. Paul Jordaan also comes into the side, and on form JP Pietersen will again play in the midfield.“For the first time in my career I’m fully fit and feeling very strong and that brings confidence. When you play well, your confidence rises and motivates you further, I’m just happy that I’m performing well for the team,” Pietersen said. He feels that to beat the Chiefs, they need to start well up front.“It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be physical, and if we don’t front up and take them on at their own game, we will have a long day. But it’s all about the good start and building from there.”The Chiefs host the Sharks in Hamilton on Saturday.

Rene Ranger shows the finger after high tackle by Bundee Aki

No Comments

first_imgWednesday Jul 17, 2013 Rene Ranger shows the finger after high tackle by Bundee Aki The Blues bid farewell to three key players at the weekend but it wasn’t the fairytale they’d planned as they lost 26-16 to the Chiefs. In the first half Rene Ranger was on the receiving end of a high shot that wasn’t carded, and showed his disgust at the decision.ADVERTISEMENTThe game was meant to be a great send off for Ranger, Ali Williams and Anthony Boric, but the red card changed things and instead the Blues had to dig deep just to stay in the contest.Earlier in the week you saw the Kane Barrett incidents, but just three minutes after the red card tempers frayed again as tryscorer on the night Bundee Aki high tackled danger Ranger.There wasn’t too much in it although it looked bad on first viewing, and Ranger clearly wasn’t happy, hoping for more than just a penalty. While it’s not totally clear, it looked as though he then gave the assistant ref or one of the players (maybe Aki, but he walked the other way), the finger.Rather than state that as fact, we’ve instead got the video for you so you can judge for yourself. If it is the case, it’s surprising that there hasn’t been further action taken, as it’s surely not something that can not be tolerated on the field, especially when it’s seen on camera.Either way, dynamic back Ranger has now finished with the Blues in Super Rugby and while it was a frustrating night for him, he’ll look forward to a good season in the ITM Cup, and then a move to France where he will join Montpellier next season.Fans in Europe are in for a treat as Ranger is arguably at the height of his game and posseses all the flair, power and x-factor to make a real impact in the Top 14.ADVERTISEMENTUntil then, there’s no doubt we’ll see more great bits of play from him in the NPC, and hopefully add more to the archive of Ranger classics, some of which can be seen in the related posts below.Was that the middle finger, and if so, should a rap over the knuckles be in order, or even a ban?
