TAGS10th StreetJerichoRemnant Christian Center Previous articleHow I met Charlie DanielsNext articleDonna’s Deals: Tax Season Software Deals Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR “When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city… and they devoted the city to the Lord.” Joshua 6:20-21The Remnant Christian Center is new in town. It was last November that they had their first service in Apopka, but they are already having an impact. This afternoon, approximately 100 members of their church and the community marched two miles from Apopka Memorial Middle School to 10th street.They called it Jericho: Intercession Walk for the City of Apopka.And the end point of the march had as much symbolism as the name.10th Street in South Apopka is the dividing line between the city and unincorporated Orange County. There is not a literal wall on 10th Street, but in many ways, there is a metaphorical one that rivals the infamous wall that protected Jericho. The violence that takes place on or around 10th Street rivals the violence the ancient Biblical town in Canaan experienced.But for the Remnant Church, this march was the beginning of a shout-out to God to end the violence.“We believe that the “spiritual walls of Jericho” will come down in our city thru concentrated prayer over our city,” said Remnant Lead Pastor George Sotolongo. “We claim Apopka for The Lord Jesus and believe God will end any violence or any spiritual darkness in our city. Each of us prayed as we walked to see God open the heavens over Apopka and to believe God that Apopka would be restored to its spiritual destiny. I was happy to see the great unity of not only other churches but the diversity of cultures coming together under one purpose. That purpose is to make Jesus known in the city of Apopka, along with His love and Mercy.”Sotolongo was pleased with the spirit of the two-mile walk, and the potential for harmony in Apopka’s future. “The prayer walk went amazing,” he said. “Each person had a sheet of paper with several scriptures to choose from, along with praying with they felt from the Lord in their own heart for the city of Apopka. We all gathered together in unity and prayed that violence would end and over Apopka. That darkness would cease in Apopka! That hate, division, and racism would end in Apopka. That Apopka would be a place where healing and restoration can take place as the name of the Lord is magnified over our city. We Prayed for the restoration of families, and we had a very powerful and historic moment with the family of Camari Dennison (The six-year-old boy that was run over and ultimately died on January 1 of this year on 10th St. in Apopka). The Dennison family walked with us for the entire 2 miles and prayed with us for restoration and healing of families and healing for the city of Apopka.”According to Sotolongo, the group took communion together and thanked the Lord for answering their prayer and believed that something powerful started today in the spirit realm over Apopka. They worshiped and sang a song together.“We all said the name of Jesus seven times (out loud and in unison),” he said. “Then let out a big shout of victory to the Lord. It was amazing. You could hear the sound of the shout over two or three blocks away.”Photos courtesy of Michelle Bankson. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov.

Hahaha…..aren’t you sweet! Reply Mama Mia The City of Apopka council meeting where Ms. Hahn attended and talked back and forth with the mayor was on March 2, 2016. You can listen to the audio or read the minutes which recorded in writing their discussion. You can find this info on Apopka.net up at the top of the page and go to that date of the council meeting. She wanted the Connelly home for her organization, after the mayor told her he had a home that was vacant and suitable possibly, and the mayor was discussing the possibility of declaring the Connelly home surplus property. Now, it is said the Connelly home was not up to par, after checking it out. So Glenn Irby talked about the Highland Manor could be moved to the same site as where the Connelly property sits currently and it was stated it will have to be demolished, the Connelly home that is on a facebook posting. So all I can say is go figure…………just trying to figure the chit chat out, I am not saying anything for sure. just speculating, and scratching my head as to why there, with not enough parking or land at Dream Lake, for that big home????? Are they serious, or will it go to the wrecking ball? I came in like a wrecking ball…………. Please enter your comment! Seriously I urge you all to go ahead and vote for the city center. Then I will have somewhere to ride my bike to. That is, if I don’t get run over trying to get to it when it is completed. Or if the developer doesn’t take too long to complete it, as I am not getting any younger, and might have to trade my bike for a hover-round. Wheewwwweeee…….!!!! Heeheee!!!! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Mama Mia July 16, 2016 at 4:34 pm Reply I have heard the Dream Lake location mentioned before. While it would look nice there, I question why? The last I heard was a lady had wanted the Connelly home for a non-profit. Okay, so the Connelly home won’t do for the non-profit for the reasons Glenn mentions in the article above. However the same lady with the non-profit, had previously had her sights set on the Highland Manor home, at least according to some of her Facebook postings I read. She did indicate that was probably not going to happen, but that she would love the Highland Manor home for her non-profit. So what public purpose would the Highland Manor be used for, if moved to Dream Lake? There is not enough parking there now, hardly, for something like it is used for currently, so I am curious as to what the home could be used for on that site at Dream Lake, that would warrant a million dollar plus move????? What happened to talk about moving it to Station Street, and having yet another city center? Restaurant, museum, other…..? Or Edward’s Field? Fickle as a fiddle, and getting hard to follow, all the multiple proposals. regarding everything city related. I think this talk is nothing but a diversion to draw the focus off of what will ultimately happen to the home, which is the wrecking ball, bulldozer, or backhoe, in which the debris will be hauled off to WHICH dump???

We will put it out there for thought, and see if there are any takers! Who should we contact that is making the major bucks now as a pro and is from Apopka? Hey, doesn’t have to be a pro athlete, can be another highly successful person from our area and appreciates our city’s unique history and wants to preserve our history. Okay the lady with the non-profit that wanted the Connelly house on Dream Lake was Mitzi Lee Hahn, Founder. You can see one of her postings here on the Apopka Voice. When you finish reading this, go back to the other articles, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, to “show more” and when the next page comes up, go to the top and click onto the “most popular” articles of the Apopka Voice, and scroll down to the article about the Highland Manor, and on to people’s comments, and her posting is there on down a little. That is the only way I know how to tell you to find her posting. July 15, 2016 at 4:27 pm July 16, 2016 at 4:09 pm Mama Mia I like that idea Danielle. Please enter your name here July 15, 2016 at 3:36 am I had hoped if the Highland Manor was going to be saved that it would be a community gathering place for all kinds of events and happenings, and would have the full banquet facilities, kitchen, stage, and full bar (hiccup!) We will have to wait and see what goes…… July 16, 2016 at 3:54 pm July 18, 2016 at 12:05 pm Reply MARILYN Kavanagh I don’t remember the name of the non-profit that the lady had, nor her name. She came and spoke at one of the city council meetings, about her non-profit, and was wanting to put her non-profit in the Connelly home on Dream Lake. It was a women’s based non-profit for women to gather, craft, sew, communicate, pray, support each other, and hob-nob and other missions. Maybe she will see this, and respond, and get all the info correct. If I remember correctly her non-profit is operating over on Roger Williams Road near Lovell School, at the big church there, which I can’t recall the name of the church right off-hand. Is it the Nazarene church, I can’t remember? That was what she said, except maybe I got the church wrong, don’t know……… July 17, 2016 at 9:50 pm Regarding the channel 9 investigation of Apopka and other government entities having so much vacant unused lands that were bought up and being held, how about this ? The inventory that was done of the city owned properties, or is being done currently by Apopka officials, is to determine what unused properties that they can deem “surplus property” to either sell, keep, or donate? Maybe they are getting their “house” in order to do something! The land at the Connelly home was talked about at the March 2, 2016 city council meeting, and there was talk about to “donate” the surplus land there, when at that council meeting , the lady wanted the home for her organization which I believe was a non-profit. So the Connelly home is not feasible for the organization now, so what gives? All of a sudden there is talk of moving the Manor to Dream Lake. Another thought, maybe the Highland Manor is going to be moved to a city owned unused property, and it might become the new UCF Incubator Building! The current UCF Incubator building sits where the new city center is suppose to go in, on that side of the road, is what I thought they said. Unless the old Barnhill Restaurant will be torn down, and the Highland Manor moved there, but I don’t think so. Maybe the Highland Manor will be moved to Dream Lake and serve as the new UCF Incubator Building. If so, UCF should share major moving costs!

Mama Mia I will move the house to give back to the city that gave to me momma mia I don’t know why they want to move it in the first place. They only mention that it takes up too much land? So what are you gonna do with that land? Build another roadway/exit to 441? Can’t the city just leave it be and have it historically preserved and used as a museum? Am I being too negative by calling the city center proposal a “pig in the poke” ? No, I am not, because the first drawings of the city center appearance was generic, and not a true representation of the city center. The next set of renderings were not a true representation of what the actual buildings will look like either. The actual representations of the buildings and such will only be when the agreement is set. I assume that means when the city council votes and approves the contract, if that is what they will do. The company is expecting the council to vote and approve of the city center before they actually can see the true representations of what the actual buildings will look like at the city center. How would you like to plunk down say $ 300,000 for a new home for yourself and only get to see what it will look like after you agree to sign the dotted line and agree to buy it site unseen???? That is crazy. Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia For months it’s been debated in social media, polled on news sites and discussed in City Council meetings – what should be done with the Highland Manor?“… I’m concerned with the issue of the house (Highland Manor),” said Apopka City Commissioner Doug Bankson at the July 6th City Council meeting. “I don’t know where that stands. I don’t know if they’re going to move it. I don’t want to be cornered and make a snap decision and suddenly realize it’s over.”No need to worry any longer. There will be no snap decisions as it applies to the historic site. The handwriting is on the wall.Jeff Mc Fadden, the Managing Director for Taurus Southern Investments, spoke in almost certain language about the Manor’s fate at a July 13th workshop.“I just don’t believe there is a way to keep the Highland Manor in its current site. It just sprawls and it takes up too much land.”At the July 6th meeting, Commissioner Kyle Becker made a prophetic statement, and a request of City Administrator Glenn Irby.“… We have to assume the Manor is going to be moved,” said Becker. “I would like to see a very high level rough estimate of how we can move it. We have to know that.”“I can arrange to get some pricing,” Irby said.Later that week, Irby secured estimates not only for the move, but a more comprehensive budget of costs associated with moving the Manor from its current location, to a prospective new home where the Connelly house currently sits at Park Avenue on Dream Lake. According to Irby, the Connelly house is not in good condition and does not meet ADA requirements for use by the public and would be cost prohibitive to retrofit those needs.The itemized estimate to move the Manor and prepare/clear the sites is:New Foundation: $35,000-$80,000Electrical: $15,000-$80,00Water/Sewer Connections: MinimalHVAC: $50,000-$75,000Restrooms (2): $128,000Demolish and Dispose of the Connelly property: $10,000-$15,000Demolish and dispose of the addition on the Highland Manor property: $10,000-$15,000Move Highland Manor to Connelly property $100,000-$150,000Build a 2,000 square foot addition onto the house once moved and include an elevator $500,000Storage and protection of materials inside the Highland Manor $15,000All totaled = $863,000 to $1,058,000The City Council is scheduled to vote on the City Center Development Agreement at the July 20th meeting. Or will the city council members see the newest renderings of what the actual buildings of the city center will look like, before they have the vote? When the “agreement is set” is actually kind of vague wording to me, about the appearance of the actual buildings. Just saying……. Whatever, I actually think they should go ahead and vote for the city center, as hard as that is for me to say, because so many people have their hopes built up, BUT when it comes time later to determine what to do with the Highland Manor…….IT NEEDS TO BE SAVED, and kept city owned, for all to use!!!! Do not sit there and vote in favor of the city center, if you all have no intentions of saving the historic home! If nothing else, it could be moved to Edward’s Field, and start incorporating other community projects along with it, there on the site. Then maybe we will have some old Apopka and some new Apopka, a nice balance for all. The city center vote is approaching…………..soon! I’m going to cut this computer off for now, it is getting darker and darker in my house, and the loud thunder and lightning is scary to me! Reply July 15, 2016 at 4:07 pm I agree to leave it where it is . Someone should make it a bed and breakfastfast. We don’t have one and Apopka is growing by leaps and bounds. That’s a perfect place. Reply Mama Mia Mama Mia The city council does not have to worry one little bit about a bank wanting to open 8 service lanes at the new city center such as Chase, the example they used. Of course not, because we already have a Bank of America in town that has about that many lanes plus a walk up service window, and they closed them ALL down! All I know after listening to the audio of the city center workshop, is if the first restaurant to open with a drive through at the city center is Taco Bell…..heads are going to roll! A nail salon with how many nail stations? 60! For real? Did I hear that correctly? Did they do an inventory of how many nail salons are in Apopka currently? Another Mexican restaurant? Oh dear god. Also, Florida Vernacular style was explained, and it makes whats new look like it has been there forever. So we are going to do away with old, to create new, that looks old……..now that is progress. What about a chocolate shop? I love chocolate. What about a fancy dog groomer salon? Also what about businesses that might be open all night long? Will that be allowed? Will there be any restrooms around the walking area, other than inside the businesses? What happened to the talk about putting fish in the pond to eat the scum on top of the pond? LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Highland Manor home if moved should be moved a little bit further down Park Avenue and set down on the lot the city owns at Park and Sandpiper across from the Circle K Store. That is a nice size lot with some pretty trees which would have a lot of room for parking and for whatever the use of the home will be. Maybe a dinner theater……or new community event center? Also, there could be a bike trail substation out along the frontage to stop in and get water, air for the bikes, etc. and then Orange County will be extending the West Orange Trail down Welch to the state park. The home there and the bike trail could all be tied together in some sort of way for families to enjoy. Reply Reply July 18, 2016 at 6:03 pm Why didn’t you city slicker staffers put those latest renderings of the city center and attach them onto the packet with the contract on the agenda of the city center workshop. I saw the packet from the city center workshop. and no problem, but when I downloaded the rendering below the city emblem on your city homepage, that is far as I got, because I can’t get the Acrobat Reader D to work because I don’t know what file it is in, or where the heck the download is……X%!!&^#$#!&!!!! You all are suppose to make it easy for residents to view your stuff. Plus my computer service has been crappy all day, flashing on and off constantly, and is getting worse every day!

The house sits in a village called Banwall on the outskirts of Jeonju, one of the most calm and beautiful city of Korea. With a pine forest on north and an orchard on south, what is most peculiar about the site is on the west, shouldering to a graveyard for some family clan. This graveyard also defines the outer boundary of the village. The village name Banwall (meaning Half-moon) is also profound, signifying the moment of when the distinction between moon waning and waxing becomes blur. Remote over the village on the east, is the stadium where FIFA Worldcup game was held 11 years ago. Turning to the far south-east, ‘Moak mountain’ (meaning a huge mountain) is visible to the naked eye. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThe house had to be erected on several crossings of demarcation; between the dead and living; between various levels of ground; between old job and new beginning for the client… Designing the house was like making a gate that transcends the boundaries. We hoped the house would embrace a peaceful and unrestricted life like a character in a forgotten story book. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThe house posits naturally according to the slow slope from south to east. Split in two, one with wooden exterior incorporates domestic life, whereas the other finished in red brick encompasses recreation and repose of the user couple. One faces due south, the other turns itself a little to the east, properly facing the far mountain. The two departs in the middle to leave space for a Madang that has no definite shape of its own. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThis Madang, the in-between space, works both as a buffer and also as an active division simultaneously. But it is in essence an empty space, hiding its existence. More relations will be encouraged as time passes and lessen conflicts at the same time. It is a space that has meaning only because it is not filled. The ‘Maru’ (Korean terrace) that faces this Madang is a distinctive Korean spatial element that is neither inside or outside. Or rather it is a demarcation between interior and exterior. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkWe have come to call this house . The house sits were the village begins. The house is a new embarking point for the clients. It is at both demarcation of nature and dwelling, of life and death. So is January the demarcating moment between the old and the next. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkA Korean poet once cried, “On each and every boundary, the flowers abound generously.” With a nearby apple orchard that symbolizes harvest, sitting between the place of the living and of dead, we hope the house will act as a venue where the boundaries meet and interact, like a time in January.

On Jan. 20, more than 200 people protesting Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C., were arrested by highly militarized cops who sprayed them with chemical agents and then detained them in the cold rain for many hours. They were charged with Felony Riot Act, which carries 10 years and a $25,000 fine. As one arrestee from International Workers of the World in Baltimore told Workers World, “[Prosecutor] Kirkhoff has never prosecuted protesters before. She does a lot of homicide cases. She specifically asked for this case. My lawyer said it would be ‘consistent with her personality’ if she had a political axe to grind.”Neo-Nazis (also known as alt-right) are licking their chops at the prospect of more than 200 front-line fighters spending years in jail instead of in the streets shutting down their rallies. Alt-right spokesman and Brietbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was slated to speak at the University of California, Berkeley Feb. 1, but massive protests caused the university to cancel last minute. There was one arrest. Donald Trump, in response, threatened to pull federal funding from the university.The next day, legions of cops arrested 11 freedom fighters at New York University. Anti-fascist activists were trying to shut down white supremacist and VICE brand creator Gavin McInnes from speaking. Inside the safety of a building, McInnes was captured on film crying while making a report to the cops. A Workers World Party member reported, “The vibe in the crowd was a unified front against fascism. It was good to see young communists and anarchists working together. For example, we commandeered a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat from a hubristic white male who decided to walk through our crowd. We worked together to take his hat and start that f*cker on fire, using communist flyers and an anarchist’s lighter.”The right wing knows its best champion is the state. Killer cops who gun down thousands each year and lock up millions of Black and Brown people take no issue with white supremacists or neo-Nazis. Go to a Klan rally to see for yourself who the cops are protecting and serving. After the murder of Alton Sterling this past summer, Black Lives Matter activists were hunted through the streets of Baton Rouge, La., tackled and beaten by cops. The streets of D.C. on Jan. 20 were mainly bereft of right-wing paramilitaries, such as Bikers for Trump, because they knew, rightly so, that the state was now in the hands of out and proud neo-Nazis. The cops were the real fascistic paramilitaries.Many whites, finding themselves for the first time on the other side of a police baton, chanted at cops during airport shutdowns against the Muslim Ban beginning Jan. 4: “Take off your riot gear! I don’t see no riot here!” This is an erroneous chant that could be misunderstood as separating the new masses in the streets from the struggles at Standing Rock and in Ferguson, Mo. It is right to resist, and whether they realize it yet or not, they are standing against the same state as the Black Lives Matter movement and the Water Protectors.Now the state wants to bring heavy charges against J20 resisters. Different collectives and affinity groups have started raising money, and the strategy seems to be using busy public defenders. Since defendants come from all over the country, it’s difficult to get everyone in the same room for a meeting, much less to agree on a unified legal strategy. The fear is that while some white defendants may be able to secure decent legal representation, those who are poor or of color may not be able to do that. What an absolute tragedy it would be to have what was a multinational, multigender group of freedom fighters split as they are on the job, at school or in the eyes of the cops.Unions were created so that individual workers could unite to form one fist against the bosses. Collectively presenting demands and undertaking direct action were the only way to defeat the bosses. Defense committees work in much the same way. Instead of saying “everyone for themselves,” defendants unite to come up with a common political, tactical and logistic strategy. Instead of a handful of people in New York organizing separately from a handful of people in Baltimore, all can agree on common principles and basic ground rules, such as no snitching and transparency about defense funds and how they are used.These issues and tasks may be difficult to undertake, but the clock is ticking as hearings have already begun and will continue over the coming weeks and months. Taking on the most notorious empire on the face of the planet is no easy task, but it’s up to us to do it. The state is united in its purpose to smash resistance to white supremacy and imperialism, and that means first smashing unity between freedom fighters in the streets.

By Ashley Davenport – Jun 15, 2020 Facebook Twitter Corteva and BASF have filed motions to intervene in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate federal registrations of three dicamba-based herbicides.Corteva and BASF became involved in the lawsuit on June 3, when the Ninth Circuit vacated EPA’s registration of Bayer’s XtendiMax, BASF’s Enginia, and Corteva’s FeXapan herbicides.BASF decided to intervene after “careful consideration,” citing the impact it has on farmers during “this critical application time, when farmers now have less than a month to protect millions of acres under threat from resistant weeds.”“Farming is difficult even in the best of times and remains challenging,” said Paul Rea, senior vice president of BASF Agricultural Solutions North America. “Making this decision now, when weed resistance continues to threaten farming operations, is disastrous for our customers. Farmers have counted on applications of dicamba-based products to control troublesome weeds for decades, and they continue to need these tools now and in the future.”Corteva is seeking to “preserve its rights and to support the rights of customers to use the impacted dicamba weed control technologies.”Last week, EPA ruled that farmers and retailers could use existing stocks that were on hand June 3, the day of the ruling, until July 31.

to go further February 19, 2021 Indian media conglomerate seeks colossal damages for two satirical videos IndiaAsia – Pacific Online freedomsMedia independence Internet RSF_en IndiaAsia – Pacific Online freedomsMedia independence Internet Don’t confuse irony with defamation Follow the news on India In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival “We urge the Mumbai high court’s judges to dismiss this absurd BCCL complaint,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “As well as satire, the work done by Newslaundry’s journalists is based on indisputable facts, and irony should not be confused with defamation. It is healthy for the press to investigate itself in a democracy. By filing this suit, BCCL’s management is posing a dangerous threat to free speech and is clearly siding against the press freedom camp.” Using satire to make your point In a civil suit filed on 19 January, The Times Group is seeking the astronomical sum of 1 billion rupees (11.4 million euros) in damages for two videos posted on Newslaundry’s site that allegedly defamed Navika Kumar and Rahul Shivshankar, respectively the group editor and the editor-in-chief of its TV news channel Times Now TV. RSF reached a member of The Times Group defence team, lawyer Vijay Hiremath, but he refused to comment. March 3, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Pande, TV Newsance’s presenter, confirmed to RSF that every broadcast is preceded by thorough research and is based on the facts. “TV Newsance is media critique show that relies on humour and satire to get a point across. This would have been amply clear to The Times Group lawyers had they read our disclaimer right at the beginning of each episode.” News She added: “We simply highlighted how The Times Group reported on [Sushant Singh Rajpu’s suicide] and the ethical and journalistic questions around it. It’s not clear what The Times Group means when they say our show is ‘beyond the realm of satire’ but it’ll be entertaining to see them elaborate on this point in court.” June 10, 2021 Find out more The suit filed by BCCL’s lawyers, who did not respond when RSF tried to reach them, describes the content of the two videos as “false, baseless and highly defamatory.” As well as seeking damages, the suit calls for Newslaundry to remove the videos and issue an apology.

In the other video, broadcast on 4 December, presenter Meghnad S. explained how several TV channels had recently tried to rig their ratings. While he was talking, the photos of many TV journalists, including Navika Kumar, were displayed. Newslaundry legal representative Nipun Katyal told RSF that the site would not comply with any of BCCL’s demands. “The allegations made by The Times Group are baseless,” he said. “As a webportal specialising in covering the media, it’s my client’s job to criticize the media and point out their failings.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Mumbai high court to dismiss the absurd defamation suit that Bennett, Coleman and Company Limited (BCCL), a huge Indian media conglomerate better known as The Times Group, has brought against Newslaundry, a news website that provides satirical and investigative coverage of India’s media. The court is due to begin hearing the case on 22 February.
