When we learn from one another, we seek ways of working that we might not have expected.”The Rev. Chuck Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop, who has coordinated much of the international visitors program in collaboration with staff of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s Global Partnerships Office, said “It is important to help leaders from the other parts of the Anglican Communion, as well as our ecumenical and interreligious partners, to understand who we are as a church and how we come to decisions. But it’s also important for us to learn from them.”International guests are invited by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Episcopal Relief & Development, Church Pension Group, and various dioceses that share companion relationships with other dioceses throughout the Anglican Communion.Representatives from The Episcopal Church’s covenant partners – such as the Anglican Episcopal churches in Brazil, Liberia, Philippines, Central America and Mexico – will also attend General Convention and are invited to join the houses of bishops and deputies with seat and voice.The Rev. Margaret Rose said that the presence of ecumenical and interreligious guests “helps us to see ourselves better.”Rose, ecumenical and interreligious officer for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, said, “We are so aware that these guests are not outsiders but partners in the work of the common mission. Outside General Convention we work together on everything from conversations around doctrine and common worship to engagement in common advocacy and projects.  With our ecumenical and interreligious partners we seek unity in peace building as we look beyond ourselves to a world in so much need.”Another important reason to welcome the guests “is the realization that we are not alone as we look to the future of our institutions,” said Rose. “We are all dealing with many of the same issues and it is good to share both the joys and the struggles.”International guests include:The Most Rev. Francisco de Assis da Silva, primate of Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do BrasilThe Rev. Arthur Cavalcante, general secretary of Episcopal Anglican Church of BrazilThe Most Rev.

Fire Station #5 opens its doors in northwest Apopka

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Apopka opens first fire station in 20 yearsFirehouse Lane is a quiet little road in northwest Apopka that intersects with Jason Dwelley Parkway on its way to the Northwest Recreation Facility. 1865 Firehouse Lane is the only address on this short tree-lined road, but it’s an important one that in many ways represents the next step in managing the massive growth and progress that this part of Apopka is experiencing.And even though Google Maps cannot find them, the men and women serving at this address can find you. Quickly. And probably when you need help the most.1865 Firehouse Lane is the site of the Apopka Fire Department’s Station #5, and on Friday morning, it turned the heads of a grateful community with an impressive grand opening/ribbon cutting ceremony. “Today is a day of great pride not only for the Apopka Fire Department but for the entire city of Apopka,” said Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer. “Even before I took office the forecast for this part of Apopka has been for growth. And that forecast for growth is with us today. In January of this year, the Apopka Fire Department ran more than 1,000 calls for service, which is compared to a normal January of 550. This fire station will serve our community. It will save lives for generations to come.”Fire Station #5 is the first additional fire station opened in Apopka in 20 years – meeting the need for an improved emergency response in Orange County’s second-largest city. Construction started in August for the $1.6 million, 7,800-square-foot facility that was designed by The Lunz Group and built by Miller Construction Management. The building includes four vehicle bays, operations offices as well as meeting, eating and sleeping areas. “For me, this is such a crowning glory,” said Apopka City Commissioner Diane Velazquez. “I have been involved with the fire department from the very beginning. And to see it come to fruition… to actually see it become a reality is very emotional for me. I absolutely love our first responders. As a retired and former first responder, I understand what it is to serve and so to get this fire station finished is a blessing. I thank each and every one of you who served here.”The staff will include 21 firefighters – seven for each of three shifts. Emergency vehicles will include a fire engine, ambulance and a rapid response squad truck that will carry equipment for vehicle accidents and other emergencies.What an exciting day,” said Apopka City Commissioner Doug Bankson. “And this really is a beautiful building. It’s first-class. But this building would be nothing without the men and women that are serving our community. The work that they do saves lives. This is a great use of the taxpayer’s money.”Fire Station#5 will significantly improve emergency response times to the largely residential areas of northwest Apopka and also handle vehicle accidents along Wekiva Parkway and State Road 429. The opening of Fire Station #5 and its proximity to the city’s newly constructed Brush Drive cuts an estimated six minutes off of emergency responses to Rock Springs Ridge, Oak Ridge, Wekiva Run and other nearby neighborhoods.Firefighters for Station No. 5 have worked for weeks from a temporary location at the Northwest Recreation Complex that opened on December 3rd. Another temporary fire station – Station No. 6 – opened that same day at Florida Hospital Apopka’s new location off of Harmon and Ocoee Apopka roads.Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale remembers when this station was a future plan, but an economic downturn in the economy slammed the brakes on the project.Fire Station #5 was actually in the idea stage is more than a decade ago. As you know because of the recession we had to put those plans on hold. But it’s time now. We have significant growth in this area. Housing developments are springing up everywhere. Fire Station #5 will serve this community well, cut down on response times, and save lives.”Editor’s Note: The City of Apopka Public Information Office contributed to this article.

Wholesale gasoline prices rose a few pennies too, but settled at a level that would suggest a retail price of around $2.00 per gallon, across the state.Florida’s average price for gasoline increased 4 cents last week. Drivers are paying an average price of $2.03 per gallon.

According to the report, 50.6 million Americans will take a road trip. More than 2.6 million of those would be Floridians. However, it’s possible even fewer people will travel this Thanksgiving. Since the forecast was developed, new cases of COVID-19 have increased and the CDC urged Americans to stay home for the holiday.“AAA urges those who decide to travel to do so safely,” Jenkins said. “Wear a mask, bring cleaning supplies, and do your research before leaving to understand if there are any travel restrictions or closures along your route or at your destination.”Visit AAA’s COVID-19 Travel Restrictions Map for the latest state and local travel restrictions.

Government obtains newspaper reporter’s phone records

The creation of an independent commission of enquiry is imperative.”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, the Chaguaramas Development Authority (CDA), a state development agency, obtained Gumbs-Sandiford’s phone records from the state-owned Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) in an apparent bid to trace her source for an article published on 9 September.The story revealed that, in an unprecedented move, planning and development Bhoe Tewarie had overturned the CDA board’s decision to dispense with a law firm’s services for being too expensive, and that he was now trying to disband the board.Bans and rumoursThis attempt to trace a journalist’s sources comes at a time of new tension between the government and many journalists critical of national security minister Jack Warner’s decision to deny the media any access to government’s crime figures.Warner is meanwhile alleged to have recently pushed through legislation that protects two of the ruling United National Congress party’s donors, Ishwar Galbaransingh and Steve Ferguson, from prosecution for money laundering, for which the United States has requested their extradition.After Warner’s actions were revealed by Denyse Renne of the Trinidad Guardian and Asha Javeed of the Trinidad Express, anonymous emails containing allegations about their private lives began to circulate in what was seen as a government-backed smear campaign.Against this backdrop, Reporters Without Borders regards the announcement that communication minister Jamal Mohammed made at the start of October as punitive. The minister said all privately-owned broadcasters would be required to carry up to five minutes of government messages every hour between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. for no compensation.”Such a measure is not in accordance with the requirements of pluralism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Its implementation would create the conditions for a media war and there is still time to stop this.”Reporters Without Borders does however welcome Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar’s announcement at the International Press Institute’s latest world congress in June that Trinidad will soon decriminalize defamation.Defamation is still punishable by imprisonment in 12 of the Caribbean’s 13 independent states. Grenada showed the way by decriminalizing defamation last July.

A spaceman comes travelling to Limerick

first_imgTwitter Cllr Kevin Sheahan, Cathaoirleach of Limerick City and County welcomes space travel icon to Limerick, former NASA astronaut Alfred ‘Al’ Worden.Picture: Keith WisemanONE of only 24 astronauts to fly to the Moon visited the offices of Limerick City and County Council this week during his two-day trip to the Mid West.Former astronaut Alfred ‘Al’ Worden was welcomed to Merchants Quay by Cathaoirleach Cllr Kevin Sheahan. Mr Worden’s visit to Limerick also saw him host a lecture at LIT and attend a dinner in The Pavilion Restaurant at the University of Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Worden is one of five men and the only one still living who flew further from Earth than any others when their Apollo 15 command module travelled to the far side of the Moon in 1971.
