Commissioner Diane Velazquez says goodbye to the Apopka City Council

first_img Barbara McLeod UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Apopka City Commissioner Diane Velazquez closed out her final meeting on the City Council with this statement during the City Commissioner’s Reports:Commissioner Diane Velazquez “I want to thank everyone who has made this journey a wonderful experience for me. I’m privileged and honored to have served our community. There were so many things I wanted to accomplish. I felt that I did and one of them is just having so many of you come to these Council meetings and just having more of our community aware of the process of city government. I love the opportunity to go out in the community and connect with you at events, family meetings, and going to all types of services. It’s something I really enjoyed. I really wanted to be a part of Apopka and make it my home. And one of the things I’m most proud of is assisting Christopher Lamphere with his Eagle Scout project to bring the 9/11 memorial to Apopka. It’s something that my husband Ed and I are proud of and it’s historical. I’m honored to have been a part of that. It’s been a pleasure working up here with all the commissioners and the mayor. And they’re right, you don’t always see eye-to-eye on things, but I always had a lot of respect for each of the commissioners and the mayor. They all bring different strengths to this Council. I love that they share their knowledge and wisdom. It’s something that I think that is important to being a public servant. I just want to say thank you to everyone who was a part of my life these past four years, especially my husband Ed. It’s been a privilege to serve the City of Apopka.”Earlier on a Facebook post before the City Council meeting, she posted this statement:Tonight is the last City Council public meeting I will serve as Commissioner representing our families & businesses of our hometown, Apopka.

Ukraine’s Poroshenko: War criminal!

first_imgWhen Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko arrives in New York for the 70th United Nations General Assembly in late September, activists in solidarity with the Donbass People’s Republics and Ukrainian political prisoners plan to expose him for the war criminal he is.Poroshenko comes bearing proposals aimed at furthering U.S.-NATO demonization of the Russian Federation. Russia President Vladimir Putin will also be present in New York. In his speech Sept. 29, Poroshenko is expected to ask the General Assembly to remove Russia from its permanent slot on the U.N. Security Council, where it has often served as a counterweight to U.S. aggression, as in Syria.Although Poroshenko’s suggestion is unlikely to find much support, he and his U.S. handlers will use this occasion to continue spreading lies about an alleged “Russian invasion” of eastern Ukraine and equally imaginary Russian threat to NATO members in Eastern Europe. Poroshenko is also expected to ask President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials for billions of dollars in additional weapons and other military aid to suppress the anti-fascist rebellion in the Donbass mining region.Besides demonizing Russia, these tales are meant to discredit the independent Donestsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. People there voted overwhelmingly to leave Ukraine after the far-right coup of February 2014, whose first act was to ban the Russian language — the language of most residents in the east.After signing an internationally negotiated ceasefire agreement in Minsk earlier this year, Poroshenko’s military has violated its terms in every imaginable way: refusing to implement Special Status for the Donbass and other regions, continuing to shell civilian areas nightly, and even building up a force of 90,000-plus troops and new NATO-supplied armaments on the contact line with Donetsk and Lugansk. These troops are currently poised to carry out a new military offensive.Poroshenko, a multimillionaire oligarch known as the “Chocolate King” for his control of the Roshen Chocolate empire, was elected in unfree, unfair elections in May 2014. The election was held just weeks after the fascist massacre of 48 youths, workers and pensioners at the House of Trade Unions in Odessa. At the time, Poroshenko was seen as one of the more “moderate” leaders of the Maidan movement that had overthrown the previous government.Those parties that opposed Maidan were forced off the ballot. People in the country’s east boycotted what they called the “election of blood.” Neo-Nazi gangs harassed and intimidated residents at polling stations. Under those conditions, voters opted for Poroshenko in hopes he would negotiate an end to the war against Donbass.Instead, Poroshenko immediately intensified the war. He also adopted the ideological trappings of the most virulent fascist groups in Kiev and stepped up persecution of political opponents, especially on the left.Along with his masters in Washington and Brussels, Poroshenko carries the responsibility for at least 7,000 deaths and tens of thousands of wounded in Kiev’s so-called Anti-Terrorist Operation against the Donbass republics; more than 1.35 million displaced people, including 900,000 refugees who’ve fled Ukraine and Donbass since the war’s start, most to Russia; and thousands of political prisoners, from local communist activists and internationally known journalists to teenagers posting anti-war sentiments on social media.Wall Street’s and Washington’s man in KievPoroshenko is Wall Street’s and Washington’s man in Kiev. He’s sold the country’s economic sovereignty to the International Monetary Fund. He also instituted brutal austerity measures that hit the poorest hardest, while vowing to sell off the country’s remaining public industries to Western investors. He’s appointed U.S. stooges and even U.S. citizens to high government positions. He oversaw a ban on communist ideology and the rehabilitation of World War II Nazi collaborators.Under Poroshenko, the Pentagon is well on its way to taking full control of Ukraine’s military. The Sept. 16 Stars and Stripes just published an announced expansion of U.S. training for active-duty troops there. This follows a successful “pilot program” with the openly neo-Nazi Azov Battalion.Notoriously racist and brutal U.S. agencies like the Texas Rangers and California Highway Patrol have been called in to set up new police forces in collaboration with local fascists in cities like Odessa and Kharkov. These cities are ruled by the Kiev regime but contain many opponents of Kiev.Perhaps nothing sums up the Ukrainian president like this statement he made last year about children in the Donbass: “Our children will go to schools and kindergartens, while theirs will be holed up in basements!” (Video posted by Russia Insider, Nov. 14, 2014)Yet, on Sept. 1, schools opened for a new year of classes in Donetsk and Lugansk, while Kiev was wracked by infighting among fascist factions. The people of Donbass stand defiant. We stand with them and declare: Poroshenko, Obama and John McCain: Guilty of war crimes in Ukraine! Shut down NATO and Kiev’s genocidal war machine!For information on actions during Poroshenko’s visit, follow “Solidarity with Ukraine Antifascists Committee” on Facebook or visit No2NATO.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She referred to the affidavit filed on behalf of the State and submitted that no such incident was reported at JJ Hospital. Senior Counsel AY Sakhare appearing for the Corporation, argued that there are a number of maternity homes and clinics which are catering to the needs of expecting ladies. Moreover, he told the Court that if some time is granted, he would file an affidavit and make the position of the Corporation clear. The Court directed MCGM to file an affidavit and indicate therein the names and particulars of maternity homes and clinics which are attending to expecting ladies and the number of deliveries that have been conducted in such maternity homes and clinics over the past couple of weeks. Adjourning the matter by a week till May 22, Court asked the Corporation to file an affidavit by the said date-“We propose to dispose of this PIL Petition on the next date upon looking into the particulars to be furnished by the Corporation in its affidavit.”The topic of this PIL assumes significance as it has been widely reported that pregnant women in the city have borne the brunt of an overstressed healthcare system caused due to the pandemic of Covid-19. In another case, a nine month pregnant lady was denied admission in Bandra by a private hospital as she was not carrying a Covid-19 report. Next Storylast_img read more

Loss for LeBron? King James lists Brentwood mansion

first_imgLebron James and his Brentwood home (Getty, Redfin)LeBron James isn’t used to losing, but it looks like he may be willing to accept an “L” on the Brentwood mansion he just listed.The future Hall of Famer and Los Angeles Lakers superstar is asking $20.5 million for the 9,440-square-foot home, according to the New York Post.James paid $20.9 million for the property in 2015. It was the first home he bought in L.A. and preceded his move to the Lakers from his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.James bought his third L.A. home — a 9,146-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills — in the fall. His other property in the city is also in Brentwood and is the biggest of the three, at 15,850 square feet.The Brentwood home that James just listed is in the so-called Rockingham Rim area, on South Rockingham Avenue. It was built in 2011 and has been updated with more modern amenities, according to the report. The home has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, along with a library, home theater, and a gym. There is also a deck outside the second-floor main suite. The home includes a 20-foot lap pool.ADVERTISEMENTOverall in the fourth quarter of 2020, L.A. properties that sold were bigger and left the market faster compared to the same time in 2019. But that led to an increasing number of owners pushing their properties on the market.[NYP] — Dennis Lynch BrentwoodCelebrity Real EstateLA Luxury ListingLeBron James Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tagslast_img read more
