Will anyone join Kilsheimer and Nelson in mayor’s race?

TAV will reach out to the 25 people we believe might run for those four offices, and confirm if they are going to be a candidate or sit this election cycle out. Today we focus on the race for Apopka mayor.25 people who might run for office in ApopkaPart One: The race for mayorOpinion/AnalysisJohn Land vs. Joe Kilsheimer.It was an epic, historic election, but do you remember the other two candidates in the 2014 mayoral election?Kilsheimer defeated Land 3,352 (54.5%) – 2,803 (45.5%) in the runoff election, but in the general election, there were two other candidates – Glen Chancy (482 votes 9.7%), and Gregg Phillips (208 votes 4.2%). Those two longshots garnered enough votes to force the Land – Kilsheimer runoff.In 2018, Mayor Kilsheimer vs. Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson has all the earmarks of an equally epic battle.Neither Kilsheimer nor Nelson has ever lost an election. Both have high name recognition in Apopka. Both will likely be well-funded. Both go in with a large base of voters.But will they run this race alone?Apopka Mayor       Joe KilsheimerOrange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe Apopka Voice contacted Chancy and Phillips, but neither responded by the time of publication. Neither Clancy nor Phillips has stayed connected to Apopka politics or made any reference to a run in 2018. Their decision to run for office would be a surprise.Perhaps the most credible challengers to Kilsheimer and Nelson would be two current commissioners who defeated incumbents in 2016 – Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker. However, credible isn’t the same as prudent, and both Bankson and Becker showed no interest in a 2018 run in their statements.“I have no plans to do so (run for mayor),” said Bankson. “I am still in my first year (as an Apopka City Commissioner) and intend to fulfill my commitment to the voters of Apopka who entrusted me with this responsibility.  It’s been an honor to serve, and I believe before I would look to do anything else it would be beneficial to all to gain the experience afforded in this office. I love our city and am content to serve and champion our common goals.”For similar reasons, Becker will remain in his current position as a city commissioner.“I am proudly serving my fellow Apopka residents as Commissioner of Seat 4,” said Becker. “I look forward to fulfilling my 4-year commitment and can confirm I will not seek election in our city’s Mayoral race.”Certainly with Election Day a little less than a year away, other prospects may emerge. A lot can happen in politics in that amount of time. However, in considering Kilsheimer and Nelson’s stature, name recognition, and success in local elections, the likelihood is they may have cleared the field and will go head-to-head in 2018.Tomorrow: Part Two – The race for Apopka City Commission/ Seat #1. I thought for sure Alice Nolan was going to run for a city council seat. I know…..Alice is going to run for Bryan Nelson’s Orange County seat!!!….right Alice??? Mama Mia March 24, 2017 at 11:39 am Gene Knight Jr…..if you get elected on the city council and a heated discussion breaks out, will you feel bad if I jump up and yell, “You all are a bunch of idiots! ” and run for the door???

CATS & BOOKS: Activities celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday

first_img The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By Jaine Treadwell Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “Every kid loves Dr. Seuss, and his books make reading fun,” Ramage said. “If kids learn to enjoy reading, they will read more and reading is important to everything that we do.”Ramage reminded the students at both schools that Dr. Seuss’ 2016 birthday celebration marked his 112th birthday.“Dr. Seuss was born in 1904 and that’s also an important date in history,” Ramage said. “That’s the year the Wright Brothers made their first flight. One day you will learn more about those two brothers.”And reading will probably be a vehicle through which the learning occurs. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Jimmy Ramage, First National Bank board chair, and Christy Wilson, FNB employee, visited Pike Liberal Arts School Wednesday to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday with the kindergarten students who came dressed as their favorite Dr. Seuss characters. Inset, Damika Rogers visited Pike County Elementary School Thursday morning dressed as Dr. Seuss’ “Cat in the Hat.” She read Seuss’s fun and silly stories to the students and laughed along with them. Rogers, who is employed at First National Bank, said she welcomed the opportunity to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with the students at PCES.The Cat in the Hat and his sidekicks, also Cats in Hats, visited Pike Liberal Arts School and Pike County Elementary School this week to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday and National Read Across America Day.The “Cats” visited PLAS on Wednesday and PCES on Thursday.Most of the students at PLAS thought the Cat in the Hat looked a lot like Brundidge Mayor Jimmy Ramage and the cat who came along with him looked familiar, too.

They like dressing up like the silly, funny characters in his books and being silly and funny, she said.“All children like the rhymes and the made-up, nonsense words,” she said. “This enjoyment of reading carries over to their school work and to later in life. If students are forced to read and don’t learn to enjoy reading they will not want to read.”The kindergarten students at PLAS were encouraged to dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss characters and they came to school as a variety of Dr. Seuss characters including The Lorax, Sally, One Thing, Two Thing, Sam I Am and, of course, the Cat in the Hat.Janet Dempsy, PCES librarian, said that reading is a skill that, when development, opens the doors to knowledge, to opportunity, to enjoyment and to the wide and wonderful world.“Dr. Seuss makes reading fun at time when children are being taught to read,” she said. “It is so important for children to learn to enjoy reading. If they don’t enjoy reading, they will not be lifelong readers.”Calvin Mulkey, an intern at PCES, said bringing young students together for a reading event like Dr. Seuss Day, whets their thirst for reading.“When students come together to read, they are engaged,” he said. “They are encouraged to read through that togetherness and the enjoyment of it.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day CATS & BOOKS: Activities celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday By The Penny Hoarder You Might Like Watercolor master shares glimpse of the process Master Chinese Watercolorist Oin Bailan was the guest speaker at the ArtTalk on Wednesday at the Johnson Center for the… read more Print Article Ramage, who is also the First National Bank board chairman, laughingly said he and bank employees enjoy donning Dr. Seuss’ trademark red and white stripped, stove pipe hats and visiting with young students in celebration of the birthday of the “most popular” children’s author.Ramage said reading is important and Dr. Seuss’ books of rhymes and nonsense are just plain fun.

Victims of 9/11-related illnesses urged to register for compensation as deadline looms

first_imgFOTOGRAFIA INC./iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Diana Vizcarra worked a few blocks from the World Trade Center and survived the terror attack of Sept. 11, 2001, without major immediate injuries but things changed in 2014, according to her husband.A rough cough that would not go away was eventually diagnosed as stage 4 lung cancer, and in 2015, Diana Vizcarra died.“This was not a normal cancer, the doctors said,” Rolando Vizcarra, a Brooklyn native and now Florida resident told ABC News. “There was no history of family cancer, she was a healthy person, never smoked, no drugs. A doctor later said it was from Ground Zero.”Vizcarra says the federal government’s World Trade Center Health Program’s Victim Compensation Fund has helped his family with the financial burden of their loss. But advocates say Vizcarra is among just a limited number of civilian family members, as opposed to first responders, who have taken advantage of the program — and the clock is quickly ticking for those eligible to receive aid.Under the Victim Compensation Fund, families are awarded a maximum of $250,000 if a family member contracts specific cancers linked to the 9/11 attacks and $90,000 for all other claims. If the victim dies from a 9/11-related illness, their family is awarded an additional $250,000 plus $100,000 for the person’s spouse and each dependent.The Victims Compensation Fund will allow families to receive benefits up until 2090. However, in order to file a claim, eligible applicants must first register with the program by July 29, 2021.The registration deadline has been pushed back several times to accommodate eligible people, according to Michael Barasch, an attorney who has represented first responders and 9/11 victims and is working to raise awareness.Barasch said about 80% of the approximately 100,000 first responders who were in downtown Manhattan during 9/11 and the subsequent months have applied for funding. By comparison, only 7% of the nearly 400,000 civilians — including students, residents and workers — who were in the neighborhood during that time and were exposed to the toxic air have applied for the program, according to Barasch.“This is the secretaries, the janitors, the students and others staff who went back to their offices while the air was still dirty,” he told ABC News. “This program can be life-changing.”Barasch said more first responders have applied so far because of word of mouth from their comrades who have since died from 9/11 illnesses and because they were more likely to connect their ailments to the attacks.The attorney said civilians who had family members die from 9/11-related cancers may not realize the attacks were linked to their ailments or may have a misunderstanding that the funds are only for police and firefighters.Vizcarra said he did not know about the fund until last year.“I just heard about it through friends,” he said. “I’m grieving so much that I didn’t talk to a lot of people about this until recently.”Another hindrance to signups, according to Barasch, is the coronavirus. In the past, he and other advocates would raise awareness about the fund at community board meetings, union meetings, events with 9/11 survivors and other opportunities.“A lot of that outreach was diminished by the lockdown, and we’re running out of time,” Barasch said.The attorney said even though eligible families have six months until the application deadline, they should act fast. The application involves a lot of paperwork, documentation — including proof one lived or worked in downtown Manhattan between Sept. 11, 2001, and July 31, 2002 — and medical history.“We’ve gotten a lot of people calling and asking for help to sign up. There’s a lot they have to go through,” he said. “And then once the application is processed, there is a lot more work.”The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund awarded nearly $1.6 billion in 2020, according to its annual report published on Feb. 16. The report said 8,273 individuals were found eligible for compensation, which was a nearly 50% increase over 2019.In the last 10 years of its operation, the fund has paid nearly $7.8 billion to more than 34,000 individuals afflicted by the terror attacks, the report said.Vizcarra acknowledged that his application process took a lot of work and reopened some emotional wounds, but in the end, it helped his family.“My advice to everyone who has suffered because of that day: Please apply,” he said. “Having that one less burden has made it easier for us to keep moving.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
