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! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply October 8, 2017 at 11:41 am “Solution based journalism”??? 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 Jan. 30, revolutionaries around the world marked the 50th anniversary of the Tet Offensive, a popular uprising backed by armed forces that changed the course of the U.S. war against Vietnam.Totally surprising the U.S. government and the military command of its occupation army of more than a half-million U.S. troops, tens of thousands of fighters of the National Liberation Front of Vietnam (NLF), supported by an ample civilian network and by their fellow Vietnamese from the north, launched a powerful popular uprising in 140 cities and towns across Vietnam.Many liberation fighters laid down their lives to free their country from the deadly U.S. occupation. But they made the Pentagon and the puppet Saigon army pay a heavy price. The offensive killed 500 U.S. soldiers each week from February into March and even more troops in the puppet army.The Tet Offensive shook the U.S. establishment to its core. As March ended, President Lyndon Johnson announced that he would not seek another term. The top U.S. commander in Vietnam, Gen. William Westmoreland, who had promised his political and Wall Street masters that the end of the war was in sight, was sacked in June.Among the objectives attacked were all four zonal headquarters of the puppet Saigon Army, eight out of eleven divisional headquarters and two U.S. army field headquarters. In Saigon, the capital of the south, NLF fighters attacked the U.S. Embassy, the Presidential Palace, the joint U.S.- Saigon armed forces headquarters and the South Vietnam naval headquarters.The NLF liberated the ancient coastal city of Hue in the northern part of south Vietnam. They hoisted the NLF flag over the main tower there and freed some 2,000 prisoners. Before they retreated, they held the city for a month against a torrential rain of bombs and artillery that completely destroyed the city.To the south, where the U.S. military used bombs, rockets and napalm on the town of Ben Tre, killing more than a thousand civilians, the commander told a reporter, “It became necessary to destroy the town in order to save it.” (New York Times, Feb. 8, 1968)Much to their chagrin, from the hallways of the Pentagon to the halls of Congress to the mansions of the Wall Street masters of high finance, a large number of U.S. ruling-class figures realized the imperialist adventure in Vietnam was doomed to failure. And so did the people of the U.S.The Tet Offensive galvanized the anti-war movement at home and opened the eyes of tens of thousands of GIs. Beginning in 1968 and growing in number each year through 1971, ordinary GIs might roll a live hand grenade into the tents of any officers or sergeants who were too zealous about sending their troops into battle.What does this mean 50 years later? Of the many activists who protested Trump’s inauguration, who protested at both the 2017 and 2018 massive women’s marches, who shut down airports across the country to oppose Trump’s racist anti-Muslim policy, who faced off against the Klan and the Nazis in Charlottesville, Va., who toppled the Confederate statue in Durham, N.C. – many of their parents weren’t born by 1968.Nevertheless, the explosive impact of the Tet Offensive has echoed through the years. It showed that a determined people, led by a thoroughly trained cadre of leaders steeped in years of anti-colonial struggle as well as Marxist-Leninist ideology, can defeat the most technically advanced military in history. As the Black Panthers said at that time, “The power of the people is greater than the man’s technology.”That thought underlines the lesson of the Tet Offensive for activists today. By organizing and training ourselves in the art of struggle, by educating ourselves about the freedom fighters of the past and present, by communicating a clear message of solidarity with ongoing struggles erupting around the globe and here at home, we can defeat the warmakers and overturn this rotten system.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
US Takes Action Against Canadian Trade Measures That Discriminate Against US Wine By Hoosier Ag Today – May 27, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News US Takes Action Against Canadian Trade Measures That Discriminate Against US Wine SHARE U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer announced that the Trump Administration has requested that the World Trade Organization (WTO) establish a dispute settlement panel to examine unfair regulations governing the sale of wine in grocery stores in the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC). The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is challenging BC regulations that discriminate against U.S. and other imported wine by allowing only BC wine to be sold on regular grocery store shelves.“We want customers in British Columbia to have the opportunity to buy our great American wine. The practice of discriminating against U.S. wine is unfair and cannot be tolerated any longer. Our wine producers rely on export markets and they deserve fair treatment, especially by our northern neighbors in British Columbia,” Secretary Perdue said.“Canada is an important market for U.S. winemakers,” said Ambassador Lighthizer. “Discriminatory regulations implemented by British Columbia are unfairly keeping U.S. wine off of grocery store shelves, and that is unacceptable. Canada and all Canadian provinces, including BC, must play by the rules. The Trump Administration will continue to hold our trading partners accountable by vigorously enforcing U.S. rights under our trade agreements and by promoting fair and reciprocal trade through all available tools, including the WTO.”The BC regulations exclude all imported wine from grocery store shelves, a new and growing retail channel for wine sales in BC. Such discriminatory measures limit sales opportunities for U.S. wine producers and provide a substantial competitive advantage for BC wine. These regulations appear to breach Canada’s WTO commitments and have adversely affected U.S. wine producers.Additional Background InformationThe United States is challenging BC regulations that were amended in April 2015 to permit the sale of wine in grocery stores. The amended regulations provide two options for grocery stores to sell wine. Under the “wine on shelf” option, a grocery store may sell wine anywhere within the grocery store, but only BC wine may be sold on grocery store shelves.Imported wine may only be sold in grocery stores under a “store within a store” option. Under the “store within a store” option, wine sales must be conducted in a “wine store” that is physically separated from the grocery store, has controlled access, and has separate cash registers from the grocery store’s cash registers. As a “store within a store”, a grocery store may sell both BC wine and imported wine.In 2017, U.S. wine exports to BC totaled $56 million, and U.S. wine had a 10 percent share of the BC market. A number of grocery stores are already selling BC wine on their shelves under the “wine on shelf” option. However, we are not aware of any grocery stores selling wine pursuant to the more costly “store within a store” option. BC’s regulations limit choices and raise costs for Canadian consumers.The United States held consultations with Canada in 2017, but those consultations did not resolve the dispute. Requesting the establishment of a panel is the next step in the WTO dispute settlement process.

NewsCrime & CourtFarmer wins appeal over stolen goods jail sentenceBy Staff Reporter – December 29, 2014 1221 Print WhatsApp Facebook Previous articlePost-Christmas sales discounts to be among the best on recordNext articleNursing body gets red card Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Twitter Linkedin Email Advertisement by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A COUNTY Limerick part-time farmer, who works “day and night and all the hours that God gives” has won his appeal on a conviction for buying stolen goods at a “knock-down” price.At Limerick Circuit Court, Judge Tom O’Donnell heard that 39-year-old Malcolm Dick (39) of Riverfarm, Ballycarney, Clarina pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods when he bought a Ifor Williams trailer and a Major tractor operated log splitter.The items were seized from Mr Dick’s farm in May of this year.The trailer and log splitter were stolen from farms in Kilmallock and North Cork. The trailer, which was valued at €2,000 the log splitter worth €920 were purchased by Mr Dick for a “knock-down” price of €400.At the original hearing in Limerick District Court, the father-of-three admitted to Gardaí that he knew the items were stolen after he was approached by an unnamed individual and offered them for sale. The court was told that Mr Dick had 25 dairy cows on a 109 acre farm and that he also worked as a truck driver at night to supplement his income.During the Circuit Court appeal, defence counsel Pat Barriscale BL said that Mr Dick had been assessed for suitability to complete community service in lieu of a prison sentence.Officers with the Probation Services concluded that because of Mr Dick’s working regime he was unsuitable to carry out community service. The District Court therefore imposed a prison sentence on those grounds.It was claimed by the defence that the prison sentence was unfair and imposed through “no fault of his own”. This was not challenged by the State.Granting the appeal and applying the Probation Act, Judge O’Donnell said that he noted the circumstances in the case, the fact that there were no previous convictions and that the accused man had made very early admissions.

They did not use any power available to them to stop this. This shows a failure of administration during the lockdown”, alleged the petitioner.The petitioner also raised questions on how the police allowed such a crowd to assemble in the first place, since it is in absolute violation of lockdown rules.The standing counsel for Maharashtra, appearing through video conferencing, apprised the court that the Central Investigation Department (CID) was investigating the case, which comes under the Additional Director General (ADG) of Maharashtra itself.On April 16, two saints travelling from Mumbai to Surat had their car stopped by a mob of over 200 people. This mob then proceeded to upturn the car and pelt stones, eventually resulting in the death of both the saints.The Bombay High Court has issued notice on a similar petition seeking CBI/SIT investigation on the crime.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Smith Collection/Gado/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said Friday she is stepping down to become president of the University of Texas-El Paso.Wilson, 58, will remain in her post until the end of May.“It has been a privilege to serve alongside our Airmen over the past two years and I am proud of the progress that we have made restoring our nation’s defense,” Wilson said in a statement released by the Air Force.“We have improved the readiness of the force; we have cut years out of acquisition schedules and gotten better prices through competition; we have repealed hundreds of superfluous regulations; and we have strengthened our ability to deter and dominate in space,” she added.In a letter to acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan, Wilson said that pending a favorable vote by the University of Texas Board of Regents she would resign effective May 31.“This will allow sufficient time for a smooth transition,” wrote Wilson.The University of Texas confirmed to ABC News that Wilson has been voted by its Board of Regents as the sole finalist to become the next president of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).By Texas state law, there is a 21-day waiting period before the Regents vote is officially finalized.The former New Mexico congresswoman and Air Force officer has been leading the Air Force since May 17, 2017.Since then she has become best known for keeping President Trump’s envisioned Space Force as a separate service within the Air Force.President Donald Trump had initially advocated for the new Space Force to become a separate department, but Wilson had pushed for it to become a new service under the Air Force, similar to how the U.S. Marine Corps falls under the Department of the Navy.But the final White House plan for the new service issued in February called for Space Force to fall under the Department of the Air Force as Wilson had advocated.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
