And in this case, a profit is the majority of the votes cast in an election.Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson raised $16,240.How a campaign differs from business is that only one candidate is successful. There is only room for one winner in this industry. Two great companies like Coke and Pepsi or Apple and Microsoft cannot coexist, and small businesses in the same industry (election) netting a small market share are little more than an afterthought.There’s also an absolute certainty that a political campaign will go out of business on election day – win or lose.With that said it only makes sense that campaigns do a lot of spending in the last days of an election. And the business of politics was good in Apopka these last few weeks.Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer raised $12,635.From the beginning of January until the first week of February, the 10 candidates running for Apopka mayor and city commission both raised and spent contributions at a record clip.329 donors gave the candidates $72,464.67 in the first five weeks of 2018, which is an astounding 34% of the entire fundraising haul of all campaigns. And despite the record month of fundraising, spending outmatched it.  Going into the last month of the election, the 10 candidates for elected office in Apopka spent $83,564.48, which is 39% of everything collected in the entire election cycle. After this spending spree, the candidates only have 30% of everything they raised for the entire campaign season for the stretch run.Alexander Smith raised $7.166.67.And no one exemplified the breakneck pace of raising and spending than mayoral candidate Bryan Nelson.Nelson, the Orange County Commissioner for District 2, led all candidates with 60 donors giving him $16,240. This pushes his total contributions to $69,675, which also leads all candidates in the five-week period ending February 9th, Nelson spent $23,157.87. This leaves him with $18,981.31, the most of any candidate.Suzanne Kidd raised $4,295.Not far behind was incumbent Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, who had 53 donors contribute $12,635, which gives him $65,485 in total contributions. Kilsheimer also spent at a high rate in the five-week period, 24,878.19, which leaves him with $13,001 for the final month of the campaign.In the Seat #1 race, Alexander Smith followed the raise and spend trend by raising $7166.67 and spending $8376.88. It was his best month of fundraising and the first time he led the period since Suzanne Kidd entered the race. Smith had 48 donors, which is also his personal best. He is left with $1563.97 in his campaign coffers.Theresa Mott raised $3,355.Kidd continued her consistent fundraising with 46 donors giving her $4295. She remained the Seat #1 leader in total contributions with $20,981 and has $11,130.84 on hand which far exceeds her Seat #1 opponents heading into the stretch run. Kidd spent $5,476.14 during the period.Gene Knight, also a Seat #1 candidate, had 10 donors contribute $1,570 to bring his total to $3,147.73. Knight spent $1,976.76 and has $123.44 left in his campaign account.Gene Knight raised $1,570.Theresa Mott, also running for Seat #1, raised $3,355 from five donors, which brings her total campaign contributions up to $6,980.84. Mott spent $999.84 on her campaign this period and has $5,746.79 left in her campaign account.Alice Nolan raised $14,835.In the Seat #2 race, challenger Alice Nolan led the way after only one month on the campaign trail, raising $14,835 from 49 donors. That is also her total contributions figure, and after spending $11,709.70 this period has $3,125.30 on hand. Nolan leads all Seat #2 candidates for the period and for total contributions.Apopka City Commissioner Diane Velazquez raised $7,470.Incumbent Commissioner (Seat #2) Diane Velazquez also got off to a late fundraising start, but raised $7,470 from 33 donors during the period, bringing her total contributions up to $9,450. After spending $4,904.38 during the period, she has $4,542.62 for the final month of the campaign, which is the most of any Seat #2 candidate.Leroy Bell raised $4,130.Leroy Bell, also a Seat #2 challenger, raised $4,130 this period from 18 donors, which increases his total contributions to $6,130. Bell spent $1,544.72 this period and has $3,684.18 on hand.Alicia Koutsoulieris raised $768.Alicia Koutsoulieris, also running for Seat #2, raised $768 from seven donors this period, which raises her total contributions to $868. Koutsoulieris spent $540 this period which leaves her with $328 in her account.Election day in Apopka is March 13th. that is exactly why some of us want a NEW mayor…to cut down on the SPENDING spree…JK has been doing….imho February 17, 2018 at 8:45 pm I am waiting on the pouncing and tongue lashing….bring it…LOL Mama Mia Mama Mia And speaking of cesspools, that pond down there at the City Center looks like one. We drove by there this morning, and the green pond scum is icky looking and covers the entire surface of the pond. What happened to the plan to put fish in there to eat the pond scum? Just think if all of the corporate campaign donations were collected, and the people’s donations, and if all of those billions went into our nation’s general funds, how much good could be accomplished for our country, and our people’s needs. Just saying……. Just think if all the campaign donations collectively were added together since the beginning of this election, this go round, that has been given to the Apopka City Council Candidates, and if they went directly into the city’s reserves, what good that could accomplish toward the common goal of building back up the city’s reserves! Of course, that is not going to happen, but just saying…….

No telling……???center_img February 17, 2018 at 8:29 pm Mama Mia February 18, 2018 at 12:09 pm February 18, 2018 at 7:08 am I have planted my tomato, bell pepper, and sunflower seeds in one of those mini greenhouse trays with the clear lid. Those 72 little peat pellets you just add a whole 2 liter soda bottle of warm water in the tray, and wait for the pellets to swell up, and then pull back the fine mesh netting and then plant the seeds. It absorbs the water FAST! The little rounded pellets are made from Canadian peat, but when those things swelled up, I swear, all I could think of was ANUVIA! Mama Mia February 17, 2018 at 7:37 pm Sharon, maybe you should think before you post. When Amazon acquired Whole Foods that was a major shake-up to the grocery store businesses. Also Aldi and Lidl, cheaper chain- food stores, have taken a toll on the regular grocery stores. I have never seen a Lidl grocery store, myself, but I have been reading the articles on channel 6, as to what has been Winn-Dixie’s problems are that are leading to the closings, and that was listed, Lidl, but like I said, I don’t know anything about that store, but I did see it listed. ?????? Has anyone ever saw one of these stores, Lidl???? I haven’t…… Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Sharon Lee Gates d February 18, 2018 at 8:59 am That is just the point Reggie, I am not seeing a publication anywhere, that is listing the donors, and I don’t understand why, as at first, they were printed in the Apopka Chief, but haven’t been in a good long time, and I don’t understand why, since the campaigns are in their last stages. I know you don’t represent the Apopka Chief, of course, but 329 is not that long to list, as you have unlimited space, right Reggie? Come on Reggie, print them. You don’t have more pressing issues than Apopka news, do you?….LOL Mama Mia February 17, 2018 at 7:29 pm And just think about all that money that Winn-Dixie’s parent company spent when they renovated the frontage of the Errol Winn Dixie not very long ago. I kind of thought then, that was too much of an investment that was not necessary, and the same thing was happening at most of the other Winn Dixie stores, all new frontages being put in. Aldi in Apopka just recently reopened after their new frontage that was redone, so are we going to see them going under soon too? Will all the groceries be going under? I have to wonder. I don’t want to have to have my hamburger dropped from a drone to my front yard by Amazon……. February 18, 2018 at 11:24 am Wouldn’t it be refreshing to see a candidate, any candidate, for any election office to state, I am only going to get petitions signed, or pay the fees to in order to qualify, and run for elected office, and I will not accept any campaign donations, what-so-ever from anybody…… Mama Mia February 18, 2018 at 7:16 am February 17, 2018 at 9:56 pm Mama Mia Reply Reply Sorry Reggie, this report is not what I was expecting. This does not show WHO donated to the candidates, and HOW MUCH they donated. I want to know WHO and HOW MUCH has been given to each candidate. This report doesn’t gauge the important part, as to who the candidates will possibly owe political favors to, if they elected, nor which businesses, vendors, and developers are trying to seek their favors. Let’s see that kind of a report Reggie….. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply I don’t understand why the lists of the people who are donating are not being printed in the media reports, now that the campaigns are in their last stages, as it is not up to the candidates to do the reporting on their own contributions collected, to the media, that is the reporter’s jobs, that is all I am saying, and I think the voters deserve that information. Reply Mama Mia Reply I didn’t modify any of your responses. Reply Mama Mia Reply February 18, 2018 at 11:56 am Mama Mia Reply February 18, 2018 at 11:27 am I am looking over your article here about the election campaigns, Reggie, and how you are comparing them to businesses, and about how all campaigns go out of business with absolute certainty, win or lose, on election day, so you say, and I have been pondering that thought. My only thought about what you said, goes back to Trump. Did that sucker’s campaign go out of business on his election day? Because if it did, great, glad it did! But to me, it seems, his campaign didn’t really go out of business, because when exactly was it that he started, (or continued) collecting for his next term’s run? Was it election day or inauguration day??? It all seems like one big blur to me….That jerk, Trump! LOL This is my last posting before I go to bed. At the mayor’s debate, see, Bryan Nelson talked about the campaign donation reports, to look at them, and see who the donors are, and see, Mayor Kilsheimer said to look at the campaign reports also, and to examine them all you want, that they are there for all to see, but then…..you don’t see them published anywhere, now, and that is my point! Now I am out of here, putting this laptop to rest, and going to bed, goodnight everyone….as I don’t care! I truly don’t! February 17, 2018 at 9:05 pm February 18, 2018 at 11:16 am Reggie Connell I’m sorry you are disappointed. The Apopka Voice doesn’t publish the names of donors, but rather the amount the campaigns are bringing in each month, their total contributions, and the amount of funds remaining in their campaign accounts. There were 329 donors this cycle. I’m not going to publish a list that long. If you are interested you may request the document from the City of Apopka or read a publication that posts that list.

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR February 17, 2018 at 9:29 pm And if all the candidates did that, it would level the playing field. This would never happen of course, if left up to the candidates. Only if all elected positions, required this to be that way by mandates and laws enacted. Of course, that is not going to happen!!! It is a cesspool process, all the way from federal, state, county, down to the local level, and the Supreme Court ruling really was the icing on the sour pound cake, if you ask me….. I can’t do anything about it, but I can spout off about the cesspool process of politics!!! Mama Mia Mama Mia Reply Please enter your comment! Mama Mia Reggie, why did you modify my response to you? I was nice enough to you, in my response. I still think you should print the lists of the donors, as a service to the voters. I can just see all the registered voters lining up at the city clerk’s office to request a public records search of the campaign donor lists…( a joke, Reggie, don’t take it personally). Mama Mia Channel 6 this morning was reporting about some Winn Dixie’s are going to be closing, as the parent company of Winn-Dixie is preparing to file for bankruptcy again. I certainly hope that the Errol Winn-Dixie won’t be one of the locations closing…..there are 500 Winn Dixie stores mostly in Florida, and 200 are set to close. Winn Dixie stores are in other southern states too, but mostly Florida, and that is where most of the closings will be. I didn’t catch the full story as my free TV’s reception was not coming in too great this morning. I could go and make a public records request at city hall….but even I am not that nosy! Really, I don’t care, honestly. It was just the anticipation of waiting on seeing the reports in the Apopka Chief, or on the Apopka Voice, and then now, that I see all these multiple donors of each and every candidate, I still don’t know who or how much, but I repeat, I DON’T CARE, I TRULY DON’T. Stay calm, chill out, and press on, until you win the Monarchy of the United Kingdom of Apopka candidates….LOL, and hopefully, for my own sanity, this election will be over soon.

Gareth Edwards’ great try for the Barbarians in 1973

first_imgWednesday Aug 23, 2006 Gareth Edwards’ great try for the Barbarians in 1973 The Barbarians and the All Blacks met at Cardiff in 1973 and the match produced a moment that will never be forgotten, and has since been recognised as one of the greatest tries ever scored, if not the greatest. That moment, one of the most played clips on television, came right at the start, when after just four minutes Gareth Edwards scored one of the best tries ever recorded on film. Cliff Morgan’s famous commentary: “Kirkpatrick to Williams. This is great stuff. Phil Bennett covering, chased by Alistair Scown. Brilliant! Oh, that’s brilliant! John Williams, Pullin, John Dawes. Great dummy! David, Tom David, the half-way line. Brilliant by Quinnell. This is Gareth Edwards. A dramatic start. What a score!” “The game against the All Blacks is one I will never forget and those of us who played in it will never be allowed to forget,” said Edwards. It was the Welsh half-back pair of Phil Bennett and Gareth Edwards that started and finished the move. Gareth remembers the day vividly. “The game against the All Blacks is one I will never forget and those of us who played in it will never be allowed to forget. It is a match that will live with me forever. “People tend only to remember the first four minutes of the game because of the try, but what they forgot is the great deal of good rugby played afterwards, much of which came from the All Blacks. “After the success of the 1971 Lions tour, which captured the imagination of the whole country, it was an opportunity to bring a lot of that side together again.” Final score: 23-11 This try is widely regarded as one of the greatest tries of all time, with a great piece of commentaryADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries 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.

Rugby World Cup Daily – Super Saturday

first_imgSaturday Sep 10, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Super Saturday Super Saturday kicked off in the early hours of Saturday morning for most of us, with four matchestaking place on what has been dubbed as Super Saturday. There were nearly a couple of upsets, but overall things ended the way most would have expected. Scotland 34 – 24 RomaniaRomania gave Scotland somewhat of a scare as the Scots needed two late Simon Danielli tries to take them clear of avoiding an embarassing upset. Romania led the game before Scotland pulled things together.“We had to come back, we were in a tough situation with about 10, 15 minutes to go and we dug it out,” said captain Alistair Kellock.Fiji 49 – 25 NamibiaNamibia put up a spirited performance against the flying Fijians in Rotorua. Namibian flyhalf Theuns Kotze took them into the lead with an incredible three dropgoals, but the pacific islanders came back, with Vereniki Goneva becoming the first Fijian to score a World Cup hatrick. He ended with four tries, only the 11th ever player to accoplish that feat.France 47 – 21 JapanFrance also found themselves in a bit of trouble in North Harbour stadium as Japan played some inspired rugby to get themselves without five points at one stage, looking as though they were in control of the match. Hot on attack, John Kirwan’s had France sweating, but it didn’t last long as the talented French backs scored a few tries from turnover ball, maybe the final scoreline a lot more flattering than it perhaps could have been.England 13 – 9 ArgentinaIn what was touted to be the game of the day, England and Argentina contested a heavyeight battle in Dunedin’s impressive new Otago Stadium. Poor kicking was the order of the day, as both sides struggled, with Jonny Wilkinson in particular having what was probably his worst every goal kicking performance. He said afterwards that the only thing to blame was himself, not the ball, nor the stadium.“The difficulty was that I felt I was hitting the ball well and expecting to see it go where I wanted it to go, but when the ball moves a bit how do you correct something that didn’t feel wrong,” said Wilkinson“Christ, I didn’t even know how many I missed. I’d say I’ve probably had days like that but not for a while. The blame is on me,” he added. England will be relieved to have won the match however.Match highlightsWe’re restricted by what we can show in terms of highlights at this stage, but you can see them all on the official Rugby World Cup website.

Delon Armitage suspended for five weeks for two incidents

first_imgThursday Nov 10, 2011 Delon Armitage suspended for five weeks for two incidents Earlier this week England and London Irish back Delon Armitage received two bans for incidents that took place in an Aviva Premiership match against Bath a few weeks back. He has now been suspended five times this year. His brother, Steffon, could also face suspension, following his lashing out at the procedure via Twitter. Armitage, who was suspended during the Rugby World Cup for a high tackle on Scotland’s Chris Paterson, has spent a fair amount of time off the park this year. A push on a doping officer in January earned him 8 weeks off – causing him to miss the entire Six Nations – and upon his return he was suspended for a strike on Northampton Saints flyhalf Stephen Myler.Armitage pleased guilty to the dangerous high tackle, and was later found guilty of dropping the knee into lock Dave Attwood as he went over for a very well taken try in the corner. That happened in the same match, not long after Armitage returned to the field following his time in the sin-bin.The RFU banned him for 5 weeks for the tackle, and 3 for the knee, but they will run concurrently. “We accept that both these incidents were reckless and not malicious,” said Judge Jeff Blackett.“However, in relation to the dangerous tackle on Tom Biggs there was the potential for significant injury and for that reason we believe that it was a mid-range entry level offence of six weeks. We increased it to eight because of concerns raised by the IRB about injuries caused by dangerous tackles and because of his poor disciplinary record.“We then reduced the sanction to five weeks because of his guilty plea, his contrition and the impressive way he conducted himself at the hearing. In relation to the strike to which he also pleaded guilty, we decided that this was a low-end entry offence and for that we imposed a three-week suspension.“Delon has unfortunately had several disciplinary issues this year and it is a shame that he once again finds himself not playing. However, we hope that he will learn from these events and we look forward to him resuming the game he quite clearly feels very passionate about,” he added.Meanwhile Delon’s brother Steffon is under investigation from the RFU regarding comments he made about the rulings on Twitter. Steffon, who is capped by England, reportedly called the RFU ‘dickheads‘ and said ‘rugby is turning soft!!! U should have stuck with football!!!!‘Following the recent investigations and banning of Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu for similar comments on Twitter, you would think that there may be a second Armitage being suspended some time soon.Below are the two incidents from the London Irish match against Bath. The second wasn’t discussed by the match commentators as they were focussing on the try being scored, but you can see it briefly anyway. Delon will miss matches in both the Heineken Cup and Aviva Premiership.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This is a total squad effort and I’m lucky to have such a great bunch of players and support staff.“We want to show the sporting landscape in the USA what rugby can be and how it can fit within the American landscape. Hopefully, today will touch and reach a lot of sports fans who realise they’ve got another national team that they can be proud of and that they can support.”After five rounds South Africa remain top of HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2018 standings, New Zealand stay in second place, 10 points behind the Blitzboks, and Fiji hold onto third place.They teams now head to Vancouver for the sixth round of the series on 10-11 March.The Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 is under six months away, in San Francisco, so this year’s series has added significance, with seeding points up for grabs, determining the draw for the July tournament.On the same weekend, the USA Eagles fifteens team were crowned Americas Rugby Championship champions after a convincing 61-19 victory over Uruguay in Montevideo.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Taniela Tupou escapes red card for brutal no arms tackle

first_imgMonday Mar 26, 2018 Taniela Tupou escapes red card for brutal no arms tackle Reds tighthead prop Taniela Tupou has been cited for this dangerous tackle against the Stormers in Cape Town on Saturday. Tupou will face a disciplinary hearing to determine how his next few weeks will look. The Reds lost the game 25-19.The 21-year-old, affectionately known as ‘Tongan Thor’, escaped a red card according to former Springbok coach Nick Mallett, who watched on in dismay and shared his thoughts from the Supersport studio.“I do not know how this foul went unpunished. It was impossible for all four (referee, two assistant referees and the TMO) to miss it,” he said. His views were echoed by Naas Botha, who said it was a ‘straightforward decision’.Referee Marius van der Westhuizen said that his TMO had a look. But with no immediate stop in play, the match continued and the referee felt compelled to move on, rather than have another look, therefore leaving it for the citing commissioner. Tupou was later cited, alleged to have contravened Law 9.13: A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously.The citing commissioner shared the view of Mallett and Botha, believing that the offence did indeed meet the Red Card threshold for foul play. Tupou will face a discplinary hearing this week.UPDATE: Tupou received a Warning for this offence. A Warning can be issued for acts of Foul Play that are viewed by the committee to come close to but do not warrant the player receiving a Red Card.In the finding handed down by the Judicial Committee Chairman Robert Stelzner SC, the Committee ruled the following:“Having conducted a detailed review of the citing commissioner’s report and all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, consisting of a written statement from the Player’s opponent, Craig Barry, and from the Stormers’ physician, oral evidence from the Player himself and the submissions from his legal representative, Mark Martin QC, the Judicial Committee concluded that the level of offending did not breach the Red Card threshold yet warranted a warning under the above Rule.”“The Judicial Committee concluded that the Player, whilst attempting to use his arms, failed to properly grasp his opponent in the tackle, which resulted in the point of contact being between the Player’s right shoulder and his opponent’s upper chest area, causing the opponent to bounce off the Player.“An inadequate attempt to grasp his opponent immediately before the point of impact resulted in the action being reckless as to the consequences thereof. This was in contravention of Law 9.11, and close to, but not crossing, the Red Card threshold. As a result the Judicial Committee issued the Player with a Warning.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
