Take some time and look around. We think it’s a cleaner, more topical site which makes it easier for readers to navigate to the stories and sections that are most important to them.However, in the coming days and weeks, more changes will be arriving at The Apopka Voice that goes beyond design, and navigation. It is our intention to transition the news site into a style of journalism that not only reports but also acts, engages and makes a difference in the community.It’s called solution-based journalism.The mission of The Apopka Voice will be to rebalance the news so that readers are exposed to stories that help them understand problems and challenges, but also show potential ways to respond. Most people would agree that mainstream news outlets often provide a dismal view of the world. They come away feeling powerless, apathetic, and resentful.And when a news product makes people want to tune out and disengage, it doesn’t bode well for the news business — or for democracy. We believe that journalism can do better. The Apopka Voice will strive to provide a view of Apopka that’s faithful to reality. It will inspire engagement with audiences and be a catalyst for action in the community.Solution-based journalism heightens accountability by reporting on where and how people are doing better against a problem. It removes excuses and sets a bar for what citizens should expect from institutions or governments. It offers a more comprehensive and representative view of the world, and it circulates timely knowledge to help society self-correct by pointing out responses that people and communities can learn from.The editors, staff, and reporters of The Apopka Voice will bring the same attention and rigor to stories about responses to problems as they do to the problems themselves. And in doing so, we believe we can elevate the public discourse, spur citizen participation, and reduce polarization. It can strengthen democracy, and when added to the mix, can improve the overall quality and impact of the stories we report on. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear 2 COMMENTS Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply Journalists have been described as spotlights – but we want to go further. We want to direct that light on something else – a way to solve the issues we report on. Without that other side, we’re caught in an endless feedback of ‘things are terrible, and there’s nothing an individual can do about it’.But please don’t misunderstand. This type of reporting isn’t soft. It’s not feel-good news that’s afraid to take on issues. On the other hand, it isn’t “attack-pieces” or “gotcha’ journalism”. Breaking news, investigative reporting, political coverage, and all the fundamental building blocks of a modern news site are still at the core of what The Apopka Voice will do. However, we will go the extra step and provide a means to involve readers with ways to take action and help their community as well.The Apopka Voice’s goal is to be the first draft of local news, but more importantly to inform, inspire, and engage its readers to make a difference in Apopka. Enjoy the new website design, and let us know what you think. We are ready to engage with you Apopka. Seargent Saunders Reggie, I like the new format of the Apopka Voice. The only thing is, when I logged on, I had to look again, because I thought I had somehow brought up another website, but now I know. I like the new look! Yes, the mainstream media can definitely leave a person feeling depressed and powerless, when reading the news. So true. So you have some solutions to offer that will make us readers feel better about the news? Great, I am ready. Bring it Reggie!

Pardon my language but what the hell does THAT mean? “Journalism” as applied to news gathering used to be people who obtained the FACTS and then disseminated them to the public. When those entities disseminated those FACTS, the entities had standards which flushed down the toilet rumors, speculation and opinion. Opinions were limited to the editorial page. Today, as we see the very obvious decline in society as well as the various entities which were involved in news gathering, “journalism” is nothing more than a few facts intermingled with mostly personal opinion or those facts twisted and perverted into the political ideology of the entity and that’s a VERY OBVIOUS FACT. A true journalist cannot change the course of human events because that’s NOT their job! Their job is to report the FACTS of whatever the story is they’re covering. Of course, expressing an editorial comment on a matter is still in order and welcomed but that is not part of the reporting of the story at hand. Just look at what you hear and see in so-called conservative radio and tv. These people consider themselves “journalists” but how much actual journalistic background do they have? Anybody can spout off their personal opinions on any subjects but these guys you hear and watch are nothing more that self promoted experts on everything when just a few years prior to their self appointed status, they were nothing more than unemployed disk jockeys. If they are so, so smart on things like foreign affairs, military strategy, economics, legislation and the like, then run for office! They won’t because they know they are full of “it”. “Journalism”…at one point it was a well respected career with people one could look up to. Now, what a joke! Please enter your comment!

This is our last issue of 2006 and I hope all of you are having a busy and prosperous Christmas period.At the National Association of Master Bakers’ conference in May, president Shirley Ryder spoke in her keynote address of the pride she and her husband, Graham, felt on 1 December when all the Christmas displays and products were ready, followed by the panicky thought: “But will they sell?” In Shirley’s case, I’m sure they are.But I hope, too, that your shop assistants are informing everyone of your Christmas treats and greeting customers with a big Christmas smile.In this week’s issue we have an article on a wonderful cakemaker, Michelle Turner, who likes to be known as Mich (pg 18). Her Christmas Tree is on the front cover. She makes cakes for everyone, ranging from HRH Prince Charles to actress Emma Thompson and the winners of Strictly Come Dancing. Her book, Spectacular Cakes, will make a good Christmas present for some of my friends, but where I fear they may just be inspired, many of you will have the talent to fulfil similar ideas.One of the new features we are introducing is Meet the Buyer – a supermarket buyer for bakery or cakes. We kick off with Drew Tiffin of Asda, who is ideally qualified because he literally swapped sides – from supplier to buyer (pg 16). If you have wondered what it takes to supply the supermarkets, then discover what Drew desires from you! What is really key is bringing new and existing products to the shop floor and, importantly, into customers’ trolleys.Also this week, we take a quick look back at the year and some of its major stories (pg 24). I am always amazed at how much news takes place in this industry – and we report it weekly!But I cannot close without mentioning the editorial team: Hayley our reporter, who has just passed her probation with flying colours; Andrew our features writer, who makes many of the most interesting visits (yes, we get jealous!); Anne our deputy editor; and Philip our art editor. And if you can’t find too many spelling mistakes that’s thanks to our part-time subeditors – Ellie and Patrick. From all of us, to all of you, a very merry Christmas!
Agadir, Morocco | AFP | Nigeria clawed back from the brink of defeat to edge Angola 2-1 after extra time on Sunday in cold, windy Tangiers and book an African Nations Championship (CHAN) semi-final against Sudan.In the last quarter-final, former champions Libya pipped Congo Brazzaville 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in southern city Agadir and they will face hosts Morocco for a place in the final.Snaps from .. Nigeria 2-1 Angola1/4 finals #TotalCHAN2018 pic.twitter.com/JPNHZGxf6i— CAF (@CAF_Online) January 28, 2018Both semi-finals are scheduled for Wednesday, with the final next Sunday offering a record $1.25 million (about one million euro) first prize in the fifth edition of the biennial competition.Nigerian Anthony Okpotu atoned for several misses in an enthralling quarter-final against Angola by equalising during the first minute of stoppage time in northern Morocco.A free-kick was nodded forward by Rabiu Ali, at 37 the second oldest footballer in the tournament, and Okpotu poked the ball into the net from close range.The goal tilted the momentum toward Nigeria in the tournament for home-based footballers and Ikechukwu Gabriel struck the winner on 109 minutes.Substitute Gabriel took the ball across the edge of the penalty area past several opponents before unleashing a low shot into the corner of the net.Angola had taken the lead after 55 minutes when an attempted clearance struck Va — one of many Angolans who use Brazilian-style nicknames — and landed in the net.Snaps from Congo 1-1 Libya #TotalCHAN2018 #CGOLBY pic.twitter.com/b58gF6v1TR— CAF (@CAF_Online) January 28, 2018 Nigeria reacted to falling behind by attacking relentlessly and when a Gabriel header hit the post, it rebounded into the face of goalkeeper Landu before being cleared.Gabriel later blazed over when one-on-one with Landu as Angola clung desperately to their lead as they tried to avoid a whitewash of quarter-finalists from southern Africa.Namibia and Zambia were eliminated Saturday by Morocco and Sudan respectively from a competition no country from the south of the continent has won.It is the second time Nigeria have reached the Nations Championship semi-finals — they lost on penalties to bitter rivals Ghana in South Africa four years ago.Libyan Saleh Taher Saeid volleyed a loose ball into the net after 15 minutes when Congolese goalkeeper Barel Mouko did not get much distance on his punched clearance of a cross. It was the third goal of the tournament for Saeid, and Junior Makiesse levelled on 37 minutes by scoring his second goal in Morocco with a close-range shot.Libya converted all five shootout penalties with Sand Masaud netting the decisive spot-kick after Mouko blazed the third Congolese penalty over the crossbar.Although restricted to footballers playing in their country of birth, Nations Championship matches carry full international status and count toward the monthly FIFA rankings.Share on: WhatsApp
