How will Tractor Supply affect Apopka traffic?

TAGSJay DavollTractor Supply Companytraffic Previous articleBlue Darters destroy Edgewater 78-0Next articleOrange County Proposed Budget – $285 Million for Public Works Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear Tractor Supply was not on the agenda for last week’s Development Review Committee meeting, but proved to be the most controversial item discussed.At issue is the intersection at 441, Washington Avenue and 2nd Street.  Can it safely handle the traffic that will be generated by the proposed Tractor Supply store?The current site layout shows entrances into the 91-car parking lot from Washington Avenue and 2nd Street.Jay Davoll, Director of Public Services, circulated a one-page summary showing six different alternatives that have been prepared by the City’s traffic consultant, HDR.According to HDR, “All alternatives were based on the need to maintain connectivity with the neighborhood and the expected commercial development while providing the same or more guidance to drivers. This will allow for consistent and predictable use of the intersection.”The alternatives ranged from doing nothing to closing parts of either Washington Avenue or 2nd street.The six alternatives identified by HDR are:Do nothingChannelize 2nd Street by building an island to physically direct westbound 2nd St traffic to northbound on Washington AvenueMake 2nd Street one-way eastbound from 441Make 2nd Street one-way westbound and Washington Street one-way northboundClose 2nd Street from 441 to the entrance to Tractor SupplyClose Washington Avenue from 441 to the entrance to Tractor SupplyHDR recommend Alternative #6, Close Washington Avenue from 441 to the entrance to Tractor Supply.  According to HDR this alternative, “Simplifies intersection operations and allows for a preferred east-west access to the neighborhood. This alternative is recommended as the adjacent signals support north-south neighborhood access.”But, according to Davoll, Tractor Supply does not like Alternative #6 and may back-out if a portion of Washington Avenue is closed.  Davoll made this observation about the alternatives, “We would not be denying access to anyone, but their traffic pattern will change.”Use this link to see the document prepared by HDR as a PDF, or review the photo version below: Please enter your name here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address!

Authorities free two journalists detained after TV debate

first_imgNews Organisation News Receive email alerts The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa RSF_en ——————————————————– Niger: Two journalists arrested in disturbing setback for press freedom Reporters Without Borders takes note of the fact that the two journalists who were arrested on 27 January – Zakari Adamou, the host of a show on privately-owned Canal 3 TV, and Ousmane Dan Badji, the editor of the newspaper L’Union – were released yesterday.The state prosecutor is not taking any further proceedings against Adamou but Badji, who refused to identify a source, has been told to “remain available to the judicial authorities.” Nayoussa Djimraou, the secretary-general of the People’s Movement for Responsible Citizenship (MPCR), who was arrested at the same time as the two journalists, was also released.“While welcoming the release of two journalists, who were unjustly detained, we still deplore the fact that the authorities violated article 67 of the law on media freedom, which prohibits the preventive detention of journalists,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“We call on the authorities to drop all the charges, which violate the freedom of these journalists to inform the public.” Follow the news on Niger to go further Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information January 31, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities free two journalists detained after TV debate The conviction of Niger newspaper editor Moussa Aksar is an attack on investigative journalism Reports May 11, 2021 Find out more 28.01.2014 – Four journalists arrested in past five daysReporters Without Borders is concerned about the tough line that Niger’s authorities have begun taking with journalists, arresting four in Niamey in the past five days.Zakari Adamou, the host of a talk show on privately-owned Canal 3 TV, and Ousmane Dan Badji, the editor of the newspaper L’Union, who was a guest on Adamou’s show, were summoned for questioning by the police yesterday afternoon and were still in police custody as this press release was being drafted today.They were due to be taken before a prosecutor on charges of “media offences” and “defamatory statements” during a televised discussion on 14 January. A civil society representative who took part in the same discussion is also being held.Their arrests follow those of two other journalists. One is Soumana Idrissa Maïga, the editor of the privately-owned daily L’Enquêteur, who was arrested on 23 January on charges of “plotting against state security” and “abetting wrongdoers” in connection with an article in his newspaper’s 17 January issue.The other is Abdoulaye Maman, the host of a Hausa-language talk show, Gaskya, on Bonferey TV, who was arrested on 25 January on a “media offences” charge in connection with comments he made on the air.The prosecutor’s office authorized their release yesterday, but their lawyers have yet to receive any notification that the charges against them have been fully dropped.Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to drop all charges against the four journalists and to release the two still being held.Niamey Press Club president Boubacar Diallo gave Reporters Without Borders his analysis in the following short interview:What is your reaction to all the arrests of journalists in the past few days?Boubacar Diallo : We are surprised and very shocked by these arrests. This is a mess. The good image that Niger had acquired internationally in the past three years has been ruined in two days by the government’s actions.Why do you think the authorities have taken a tougher line with the media in the past few days?The government has its back to the wall because of various crises and so it is turning on journalists who express views and organize debates it doesn’t like. Also, some journalists don’t know how to consolidate our democratic gains, and that upsets government leaders. This sudden change of behaviour is a problem because the penal code is being used with these journalists, not the press law.As president of the Niamey Press Club, what are you calling for?We want the authorities to respect the laws that govern the media in Niger. A journalist can be called to account for his actions, but this should be in accordance with the press law (which means they should not be taken into police custody). And we want the president to respect the undertakings he gave in 2001 as regards respect for media freedom.We also appeal to journalists to make an effort to adhere to the professional codes of conduct. To avoid talking about things they don’t know about and to avoid being used by either the government or the opposition.Niger is ranked 43rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Photo : President Issoufou signing the Declaration of Table Mountain NigerAfrica November 27, 2020 Find out more NigerAfrica July 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

What we know about the fatal police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo

first_imgChicago Police Department(CHICAGO) — The fatal police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo was captured on newly released body camera footage, along with witness and surveillance video.Chicago Police Officer Eric Stillman has been identified in the original case incident report as the officer who fatally shot the teen on March 29 in the Little Village neighborhood. Toledo’s death sparked protests among the community which is demanding change from the Chicago Police Department and Mayor Lori Lightfoot.Lightfoot called the footage “excruciating” and “difficult to watch” in a press conference.Here’s what’s known so far about the deadly shooting of Adam Toledo:Shots fired, triggering police responseJust before 3 a.m. on March 29, police say the department’s ShotSpotter technology, which can identify and alert officials of potential gunshots, detected a number of gunshots fired on the city’s West Side. At least two ​911 calls were also made in connection with the gunfire. Little Village, where Toledo lived and was killed, is a predominantly Latino community.Nearby surveillance video shows 21-year-old Ruben Roman shooting at a passing vehicle with Toledo by his side, according to prosecutors in a bond hearing for Roman. Roman and Toledo then are said to have ducked into an alley, where officers found them shortly after.Both ran, according to officials. In the footage, Stillman tackles Roman to the ground, then, while another officer arrests him, gets back up to chase Toledo.Gloves worn by Roman tested positive for gunshot residue, according to Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy. He said seven shell casings recovered by officers matched the handgun Roman is previously seen using and that he says Toledo later appears to be carrying.Roman now faces felony charges of reckless discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, as well as child endangerment and violating probation, according to Murphy.‘Show me your f—ing hands!’The police department released a video sequence that shows close-up video and freeze frames of the chase, in which Toledo appears to have a gun.Stillman can be heard on video yelling, “Police! Stop. Stop right f—ing now.” Toledo then stops at a break in the fence.Stillman yells, “Hands — show me your f—ing hands.” Toledo then drops what seems to be a gun behind a fence, according to officials. As the officer yells, “Drop it!” Toledo put both of his hands up. In less than one second according to the prosecutors’ account, Toledo allegedly tosses the gun behind the fence, and is shot by the officer.Initial reports claimed that Toledo had a gun in his hands when he was shot, but the Cook County state’s attorney’s office said those claims are false.Toledo then falls to his knees and lays on the ground, on the video.Pronounced dead at the sceneIn the footage, Stillman can be heard reporting that shots were fired by police and he called an ambulance to the scene. He made attempts to revive Toledo, telling him to “stay with him,” but the teen was unresponsive. At one point, Stillman says he didn’t feel a heartbeat and performs CPR on Toledo.In a statement to ABC News, Stillman’s attorney Tim Grace said “the officer was faced with a life-threatening and deadly force situation. All prior attempts to deescalate and gain compliance with all of the officers’ lawful orders had failed.”Toledo did not have identification on him at the time of the shooting, according to officials. He was fingerprinted multiple times, but nothing came up. Missing persons reports were also checked.Roman gave a fake name when questioned about Toledo’s identity and denied knowing Toledo or firing any shots, according to police and prosecutors.On March 31, detectives contacted Toledo’s mother, Elizabeth, to tell her that her son matched the description of someone in the morgue. She identified her son that day. In a statement, the family expressed anger that officials waited two days before calling the family.Who was Adam Toledo?Adam Toledo was a seventh grader at Gary Elementary School, his family said in a statement.“[He] enjoyed sports and was a good kid. He did not deserve to die the way he did,” the statement said. “The Toledo Family will seek justice for this reprehensible crime.”In another statement, the Toledo family addressed “hurtful and false” mischaracterizations of Adam “as a lonely child of the street who had no one to turn to. This is simply not true. Adam was a loved and supported 13-year-old boy. He lived with his mother, his 90-year-old grandfather, and two of his siblings. His father was in his life. They all loved him very much. The Toledo family is a close-knit family. They look after each other.”Weiss Ortiz P.C. is representing the Toledo family.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Eight killed in FedEx shooting: Suspect had ‘no confrontation with anyone,’ police said

first_imgictor/iStock(INDIANAPOLIS) — Eight people were shot and killed and several others were injured in a mass shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis Thursday night, according to authorities.The suspect was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Craig McCartt, deputy chief of Criminal Investigations at Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, said at a Friday news conference.When officers arrived at the FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport just after 11 p.m., they found a “chaotic and active crime scene,” McCartt said.“This suspect came to the facility … he got out of his car and pretty quickly started some random shooting outside the facility. There was no confrontation with anyone,” McCartt said. “That began in the parking lot and then he did go into the building.”Four victims were found outside and four were inside, police said.Five people were transported from the scene, McCartt said. Four of those people suffered non-fatal gunshot wounds, he said.Paul Keenan, special agent in charge of the FBI Indianapolis Field Office, said “with less than 12 hours since the shooting, it would be premature to speculate” on a motive.Police said they believe the suspect had a rifle.The names of the victims have not been released.“We’ve all been shaken by this heinous act,” Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Chief Randal Taylor said at Friday’s news conference.The police chief called FedEx a major employer for the city. This FedEx location is the second-largest FedEx Express Hub in the world, according to an internal briefing from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. The largest hub is in Memphis.Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said in a statement Friday, “This morning, Indianapolis residents are confronted with the horrific news of yet another mass shooting, an act of violence that senselessly claimed the lives of eight of our neighbors.”“As law enforcement works to learn more about this tragedy, our prayers are with the families of those whose lives were cut short,” Hogsett said.The mayor said at the Friday news conference, “We must guard against resignation or even despair. The assumption that this is simply how it must be and we might as well get used to it — we need the courage that compels courageous acts that push past weariness.”FedEx said in a statement Friday morning, “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the loss of our team members following the tragic shooting at our FedEx Ground facility in Indianapolis.”“Our most heartfelt sympathies are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence. The safety of our team members is our top priority, and we are fully cooperating with investigating authorities,” FedEx said.Attorney General Merrick Garland has been briefed on the shooting, according to a senior Justice Department official.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Conveyancing start-up guarantees to exchange within fixed period or return fees

Our mission is to transform the value that law brings to the home moving process.”Muve offers two services – a standard conveyancing package priced at £699 and its ‘MoveFast’ service which is £1,199, both excluding VAT.Muve Claus Werner Connect2Law Dan Watkins David Jabarri May 29, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Nigel Owens to referee upcoming Varsity match

first_imgIt was confirmed this morning that Nigel Owens MBE will be refereeing the Varsity Rugby Match this Thursday.As a contracted Heineken Champions Cup referee, Owens is required to regularly officiate matches on the continent. The group phase of the European knockout competition traditionally takes place in the Autumn and has previously denied Owens the opportunity to don the whistle for the contest between Oxford and Cambridge.The Welshman, however, has been handed special dispensation this time around to referee the iconic fixture, before travelling to Paris for Sunday’s clash between Racing 92 and Leicester Tigers.Upon confirmation of the arrangement, he tweeted: “Very pleased to [have] been given the honour of refereeing the Varsity match at Twickenham on Thursday. Really excited and looking forward to refereeing this great fixture for the first time.”In 2014, Owens was subjected to homophobic abuse when taking charge of an Autumn International between England and New Zealand at Twickenham, and subsequently two supporters were banned from the home of English rugby.In August of this year, he revealed that the RFU chairman Bill Beaumont had personally handwritten a letter in which he assured Owens that the RFU were in staunch opposition to the homophobic behaviour and that “[Owens] would always be welcome at Twickenham.”Owens credits this intervention as the driving force in deciding against retiring as a referee, and in 2015 returned to Twickenham to officiate the Rugby World Cup Final between New Zealand and Australia.Speaking to the official Varsity Match website, Owens nodded to the long line of Welsh officials who have taken charge of the fixture, adding that he “didn’t want to miss out on this game in my career.”Owens will become the third referee to blow the whistle in the Varsity Match having previously officiated the World Cup Final, following in the footsteps of fellow Welshman Derek Bevan, who officiated the 1991 Final that Twickenham also played host to. In more recent history, Englishmen Wayne Barnes (2005, 2008) and Dave Pearson (2011) have joined the roll call after refereeing at the World Cup.The arrangement is no doubt mutually beneficial to all parties involved; a sentiment echoed by CEO David Searle on the Varsity site: “It is fantastic to have the endorsement of the world’s leading referee for our fixture at Twickenham. It is nice to see that the current crop of professional referees still see value in the traditions of the game and still want to be involved in games like the Varsity Match.”The move is another welcome boost for the occasion after a four-year extension with Twickenham for both the Men’s and Women’s matches was agreed in March. At the time, Men’s captain Dominick Waldouck told Cherwell: “Some of my earliest rugby memories are watching The Varsity game. For me, Twickenham represents the home of Varsity, so it’s great to hear the contract has been extended.”The 138th Varsity match will take place on Thursday 6th December at its usual venue in Twickenham.Below is a link to Fred Dimbleby’s interview with Owens earlier this year:http://cherwell.org/2018/05/06/nigel-owens-i-dont-want-to-be-a-celebrity/last_img read more
