Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On an overcast and muggy evening 175 marchers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement  walked from  the Alonzo Williams Park through the streets of South Apopka to The Apopka Police Department. They chanted, “black lives matter,” “hands up, don’t shoot,” and “no justice, no peace.”They marched, they prayed, they called for unity, and an end to the violence. There were no violent incidents, and no threats to law enforcement.Representatives from the Apopka Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office attended the event, blocked off roads along the route, and led the marchers to APD headquarters.“We support the freedoms provided by our constitution and everyone’s opportunity to exercise their first amendment rights,” said APD Captain Randall Fernandez. “This march was peaceful and embodied the unity found within our community. It highlighted the support of the members of  the Apopka Police Department and of the community and the community of the officers. This proud and strong relationship is key to what makes Apopka a great place to live and work.”Melvin Bolder, one of the group organizers, was pleased with the turnout both in attendance and in the varieties of people attending.“I see a lot of diversity, a lot of cultures and a lot of religions and at the end of the day that was our goal.”Earlier in the week, Bishop Kelvin Cobaris of The Impact Church in Orlando was critical of the Black Lives Matter group at a rally in support of law enforcement at the Apopka City Hall. Cobaris, who is running for Florida House District 45 (which includes Apopka south of 441 and 436), said that “If the Black Lives Matter narrative brings us to divisiveness and to hatred, and violence, then I condemn it. I stand against it.”But at the march, he explained the distinction between the narrative and the violence he condemns.“Just to help you understand the Black Lives Matter narrative better, because there is so much confusion about it all over the nation… And there are some radicals that are taking the wrong approach and being vigilantes and taking matters into their own hands. But the reality is the narrative of the black lives matter started out of the Trayvon Martin shooting and evolved into a protest of police shootings and violence against blacks…so we’re saying black lives matter too. It doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. But the focus was about the excessive force and brutality that was going on with black males and law enforcement. So I don’t want you to misconstrue why we’re here today. We’re not here to divide. We’re not here to protest for division in Apopka. We’re here to unite.”Pastor Richard King, the Vice President of the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance, challenged the community to let their voices be heard at the upcoming elections as well as at the march.“All of us are created in the image of God, and that means that every life matters. We were made in his image. We condemn violence against anyone. But not only does every life matter, but every vote matters. There are elections coming up that are vital to this community. So do your research and vote. We can do more with a pen and in a ballot box than we can ever do on the street. We are better than that.”Pastor Darrel Morgan of the Word of Life Church in Apopka quoted from the Gospels in calling for an end to the darkness.“Jesus asked us to be the light of the world. Light gives guidance when there is none. Light is mercy. It’s time for Apopka to turn the lights on, and let the goodness of God shine through.”Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, the President of The South Apopka Ministerial Alliance and The Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance, wants to see accountability rather than cover-ups.“This march is about peace. It’s about bringing love into our community. Yes we have major problems but we can fix them. But if the police do something that is wrong, it should not be covered up. We need to make sure they are held accountable when that sort of thing takes place. That’s what Black Lives Matters is saying. If you are wrong, own up to it. All of us can make mistakes, but in the process of making that mistake, let’s do something about it.Black Lives Matter plan to march goes in Kissimmee next Sunday (July 31st), and in Ocoee the following Sunday (August 7th). 1 COMMENT UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your comment!last_img read more

K-12 school superintendents lay out their proposal for reopening Florida schools

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Florida’s 2.8 million K-12 students are returning to reopened schools next academic year, but when and how they will do so in a “new normal” remains unknown.“Preliminary and broad” proposals submitted Wednesday to the Florida Board of Education (BOE) by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) assumes a fall reopening with a range of guidelines.Among proposed protocols for reopened schools are daily temperature checks for students and staff, on-site rapid COVID-19 testing, smaller class sizes and fewer numbers of students assigned to specific buses.FADSS presented two plans to BOE in a phone conference directed by Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, who offered few comments other than to thank superintendents and board members afterward for their proposals.“All of that stuff is being evaluated,” Corcoran said, “but I appreciate your comments.”Before Wednesday’s meeting, Corcoran issued an order extending the June 30 expiration of teacher certifications through December and suspended teacher evaluations for performance-based salary reviews, leaving that to individual school districts.Florida schools have been closed since mid-March, with students supposed to finish this academic year through online classes. However, not all families have access to the laptops necessary for “distance learning,” and a significant number of students have never signed into online classes.Under FADSS’ COVID-19 Education Recovery Plan, superintendents envision a hybrid learning approach between in-person and online coursework, with an exam conducted over the summer to identify students who may have fallen into the digital divide’s cracks.“Superintendents feel strongly that when we return to the 2020-21 school year, districts will need to quickly identify any student with remaining learning gaps,” Pinellas County Superintendent Michael Grego said on behalf of FDASS.Once students ensnared in the “COVID-19 academic slide” have been identified, Grego said districts can address their needs individually through a summer programming expansion that could include extended day, extended program or extended year in the 2020-21 academic calendar.Under FADSS’ K-12 Return to School Recommended Guidelines, DOE would create a Pandemic Education Response Team of medical professionals “to establish the medical trend guidelines for reopening schools.”The team would establish social distancing protocols for recess, lunch, physical education and group events, personal protective measures and screening requirements “to best mitigate exposure to COVID-19 while planning for a return to school that ensures the safety and well-being of all stakeholders,” the plan said.Superintendents said schools must be provided with digital thermometers, masks, gloves, soap and sanitizer and offer parents expanded digital learning for their children.Board member Michael Olenick called for the creation of a task force comprised of health experts, community members and school officials to examine the “many unknowns” of how COVID-19 affects children.“We have a new normal here, and that new normal will also require this task force to prepare for a very likely event that there is going to be a spike again in the fall,” Olenick said.“I think that there are so many aspects that are bigger than just the state,” he continued. “I think districts need and want your help – our help. And I think it is our responsibility as the State Board of Education who oversees K-12.”“Every decision is a balancing act,” board member Ryan Petty said.

Harlequins beat Stade Francais with a most dramatic finale

first_imgSunday Dec 28, 2008 Harlequins beat Stade Francais with a most dramatic finale A few weeks back we watched in amazement as Harlequins produced a most impressive 29 phases before flyhalf Nick Evans slotted a winning dropgoal to secure back to back wins over Stade Francais. The weather was awful, resulting in a pitch inspection an hour and a half before kickoff. The rain continued throughout the match, resulting in old fashioned rugby being played, with plenty of kicking the referees whistle dominating much of the proceedings. It was a nervy final ten minutes as the sides were two points apart with the result of the match having an impact on qualification for the knock-out stages. Stade Francais sliced a kick which setup a lineout for Quins which led to them securing possession, and hanging onto it for a miraculous 29 phases before Evans struck the deciding drop goal. It was a moment of brilliance from not only Evans, but it the whole team as it seemed virtually everyone touched the ball. The wingers made runs, and the forwards worked hard. Evans set himself twice for the shot at goal, but the kiwi, and the rest of the side, had the patience to keep going. When the time was right, the kick went over, and it was sweet victory for Harlequins, who had now beaten Stade twice in two weeks.

Robbie Fruean’s slingshot tackle against North Harbour

first_imgMonday Aug 16, 2010 Robbie Fruean’s slingshot tackle against North Harbour Young Canterbury centre Robbie Fruean scored a hat trick of tries against North Harbour on the weekend as his side romped to a 44-22 win in the ITM Cup in Christchurch. Fruean not only scored some nice tries, but he made his physical presence felt.As everyone knows by now, there is an anxious wait for the grand entrance of league convert Sonny Bill Williams. Williams had a hamstring niggle so he is yet to make his debut in the tournament.When he comes back, in all likelihood this coming weekend, he will be either joining up with, or replacing, Fruean. It could be Stephen Brett though who may have to make way for what could be the most physically devastating centre pairing prospect the game has seen in some time.If Fruean continues to show this form though, and lives up to his promise, he may well overshadow the the SBW show this season. Health permitting that is.Fruean was diagnosed with rheumatic fever two years ago, and a week ago was sidelined after there were concerns that he had an irregular heart beat, or Arrhythmia. At that stage he had a new heart valve attached, enabling him to continue breathing, live a normal life, and incredibly, make a return to rugby.Sources closer to the team will know more, but at this stage things seem to be steady and when strong, Fruean is a bright young prospect that with or without the Sonny Bill Williams factor, could well be an All Black within a few years.This tackle was rather comical and if nothing else, showed the power of the guy. It brings back memories of the Gordon Tallis slingshot from a few years back, which you can see in the related posts along with a few others. :: Related Posts :: Gordon Tallis’ famous slingshot tackle on Brett Hodgson Midweek Madness – The good old drag tackle Gavin Quinnell vs Peter Richards in 2006 Time: 0:48ADVERTISEMENT 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.

Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final

first_imgMonday Apr 9, 2012 Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final Edinburgh knocked four times champions Toulouse out of the Heineken Cup in their Quarter Final meeting at a vocal Murrayfield on Saturday. The 19-14 win sets them up to play Ulster next, a first ever semi final for a Scottish side in European Rugby.The home side couldn’t have started better as they scored through scrumhalf Mike Blair within ninety seconds of kickoff. Flyhalf Greig Laidlaw kept things ticking over with the boot but they were later reduced to thirteen men when both Alan Jacobson and Ross Rennie were yellow carded.Fijian flyer Timoci Matanavou scored an incredible try during that period, but Toulouse Hooker William Servat later received a card of his own, and Edinburgh hung on for a historic win over the giants fo French rugby. “We are absolutely over the moon,”  said Man of the Match, Laidlaw.“The players put in a great shift out there. We struggled in the first half with 13 men but we managed to stay in the game and I think that won us the game.”Despite being sin-binned for a synical offence, prop Jacobson was ecstatic come the final whistle, citing the great atmosphere and strong attendance as a huge motivating factor for his team. “It doesn’t get any better than this! It is impossible to accurately measure the effect the fans had on the contest – but it sure was massive. I told the guys in the dressing room beforehand that it was our big opportunity to make history and the supporters helped us do just that.“The crowd were unreal, both in terms of numbers and the noise they made. We had some great crowds and great games in the past but this was another level altogether. It was like an international. In fact the noise was even louder – amazing,” he added.Toulouse attempted a late fightback, but with time almost up the home side were awarded another penalty, which sealed the victory. “I asked the ref if I could stand for a minute and kick it into touch, but he said ‘no’ so I decided to go for the post,” explained Laidlaw.“I still thought about blasting it left and dead, but they are huge dead-ball areas at Murrayfield, and I might not have made it, so I said ‘I’m going for it’ and fortunately for me it sailed through.”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.

England score nine tries to comfortably beat Fiji at Twickenham

first_imgSunday Nov 20, 2016 England score nine tries to comfortably beat Fiji at Twickenham England scored nine tries to run Fiji off the park and win 58-15 at a packed Twickenham Stadium on Saturday. Fijian born England winger Semesa Rokoduguni started for England for the first time since 2014, and scored a brace, as did Jonathan Joseph and Joe Launchbury.The tries were scored by Joseph, Elliot Daly, Teimana Harrison, Joe Launchbury and Alex Goode. Fiji scored through stars Nemani Nadolo, Leone Nakarawa and Metuisela Talebula.“It was good fish and chips,” coach Eddie Jones told BBC Sport.“It doesn’t mean fish and chips is basic. I thought we played some sparkling rugby, really good stuff. The ball movement, crispness of passing was fantastic. We are a young team, in terms of only being together 11 games. We are not going to get everything absolutely right.“Rokoduguni has definitely got a smile on his face. I’m really pleased for him because he worked hard to get this chance. He got a lot of reward for the hard work he’s done.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Kolisi gives inspirational acceptance speech as Springboks fly the flag for rugby

first_imgTuesday Feb 18, 2020 Kolisi gives inspirational acceptance speech as Springboks fly the flag for rugby Injured Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, along with five other World Cup winners, were on hand to collect the prestigious World Team of the Year award at the annual Laureus Sport for Good Awards in Berlin last night. Kolisi was at his inspirational best.ADVERTISEMENTKolisi, who famously led the Springboks to their third Rugby World Cup title in Japan last year, was there along with Schalk Brits, Faf de Klerk, Cheslin Kolbe, Francois Louw and new head coach, Jacques Nienaber.To put things in perspective, the South African team beat out the likes of Liverpool Football Club, Spain’s basketball team, Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 racing team, the USA Women’s Soccer team and the Toronto Raptors.Upon receiving the award, Kolisi mentioned the differences in the team, and how even the likes of himself, from an extremely humble background, can be inspired by sport and end up where he is today.He also urged all sportsmen to keep doing what they’re doing, as they have a responsibility greater than themselves.ADVERTISEMENT“We are absolutely bursting with pride and would like to congratulate Rassie, Siya and the Springbok team, as well as the management for receiving this fantastic award,” said SA Rugby President Mr Mark Alexander.“They were so heroic on the field and through their excellent off-field conduct, they were true examples of excellent South African ambassadors.“Our country can be very proud of this team and what they have accomplished in such a short space of time.
