I told my husband, if that was Volusia County, I believe they would have already ordered people out of the water and closed the beach for swimming and flagged it! Not to mention, the stirred up turbulent sandy water, that causes the sharks to get confused, and to bite at what they think are food! Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom We were looking for big flashlights that have a big square battery in them, that are relatively cheap, last week, and couldn’t find them, only the batteries, or the flashlights without the batteries. It is always cheaper to buy them with the battery already in them, but couldn’t find them. Like my husband says, why buy them separately, if you can buy them together, cheaper. We got a whole bunch, at home, that need batteries now. We will check it out again, and maybe they will have some, since it is hurricane tax-free days, but I doubt it….lol Please enter your name here Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Update: Villwock to Run after Stallman Retirement Announcement SHARE SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 14, 2015 Bob Stallman retiringFirst it was Don Villwock, now it’s Bob Stallman. Villwock is president of Indiana Farm Bureau and it was almost a month ago that he announced he will not seek re-election for another term. He’ll step down at the end of the year. Then Tuesday Stallman, president at American Farm Bureau announced that he will not seek re-election at the annual meeting in January.Wednesday morning Villwock announced he is throwing his hat in the ring with this announcement:President Bob Stallman announced yesterday that he will not seek re-election as President of the American Farm Bureau. As we all know, Bob has done an outstanding job leading our organization and it has been an honor to work with him.After discussions with my family and encouragement from many of you, I have made the decision to seek the Presidency of the American Farm Bureau at our convention in January. I believe that my experiences and my leadership capabilities qualify me to lead the organization as our industry and our nation face challenging times. American agriculture needs the strong and unified voice of Farm Bureau. My diverse leadership experiences, both inside and outside Farm Bureau, have given me the unique qualifications to represent our nation’s farmers and ranchers.I firmly believe that Farm Bureau’s strength resides in our grassroots system whose bedrock is the local Farm Bureau. We can only have a strong American Farm Bureau if we have strong state and county/parish Farm Bureaus. I will dedicate my efforts to strengthen and build on this tradition.I look forward to visiting with you, listening to your ideas, and answering any questions you might have.I am asking for your support as we begin this process of selecting a new AFBF President.Sincerely,Don VillwockPresident | Indiana Farm Bureau Inc.The Stallman announcement comes after 16 years at the helm of the nation’s largest general farm organization. He is a cattle and rice producer from Columbus, Texas and the 11th president during AFBF’s almost 97-year history.“It has been a tremendous honor to serve the nation’s Farm Bureau members and represent agriculture and rural America,” Stallman said. “After 16 years as AFBF president, six as Texas Farm Bureau president and several more in other Farm Bureau roles, it is time to hand over the reins of leadership—a decision that is made easier by knowing the great leadership and foundation that exist to continue moving Farm Bureau forward. I am as optimistic as ever about the future of American agriculture and Farm Bureau.“On the wall of the AFBF office is a quote by President Thomas Jefferson: ‘Agriculture is our wisest pursuit because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals and happiness.’ I couldn’t agree more, and I would add that a most rewarding pursuit is working for the men and women who make up American agriculture. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to do so.”AFBF has thrived under Stallman’s presidency. Farm Bureau membership nationwide has grown by more than 1 million member families. Programming has grown to include more efforts to build rural communities and economies and more leadership development programs to help farmers and ranchers become advocates for agriculture and citizen leaders in their communities. AFBF has grown organizationally, particularly with the acquisition of the IDEAg farm events and publications business in 2013. And AFBF has grown in its effectiveness as an advocate in the courts for farmers’ and ranchers’ freedom to operate, and it remains the most visible, influential voice in the nation’s capital for farmers and ranchers of all types, sizes and regions.“While the presidential gavel will change hands, what defines Farm Bureau will remain the same: our grassroots strength and our commitment to strengthening America’s agricultural and rural communities,” Stallman added.In addition to his Farm Bureau roles, Stallman has served on numerous boards and federal and state committees, including the White House Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations, the State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy, the Farm Foundation board of trustees, the board and founding leadership of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, the board of the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology and the House Agriculture Committee’s Commission on 21st Century Production Agriculture.A new AFBF president will be elected to a two-year term at the 97th annual meeting of voting delegates, Jan. 12, 2016, as part of the AFBF Annual Convention and IDEAg Tradeshow, Jan. 10-13, 2016, in Orlando, Florida.Source: AFBF Facebook Twitter Previous articleHouse Ag Committee Passes SAFE ActNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Update: Villwock to Run after Stallman Retirement Announcement
Receive email alerts #CollateralFreedom: RSF now unblocking 21 sites in 12 countries TurkmenistanEurope – Central Asia News News (Photo: AFP – Bertrand Guay / AFP) Follow the news on Turkmenistan TurkmenistanEurope – Central Asia News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that journalists and human rights activists Annakurban Amanklychev and Sapardurdy Khadjiyev were released during the weekend on completing seven-year jail sentences in appalling conditions.“We are delighted that these two journalists have finally been freed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We often feared for their lives during these past years, in which reports of terrible prison conditions occasionally reached us. Nonetheless, they are in very poor shape after this ordeal. Nothing will be able to redress the seven long years of unjust detention.“Justice has still not been rendered to their colleague, Ogulsapar Muradova, who died in detention shortly after their arrest. And anyone who dares to criticize the authorities is still jailed or confined to a psychiatric hospital. How many other journalists, media assistants and human rights defenders still languish in Turkmenistan’s terrible prisons? It is hard to say because so little information filters out from what is one of the world’s most closed and repressive countries.”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Amanklychev and Khadjiyev were released on 16 February and have returned to their homes. Their years in detention have left serious after-effects, including cardiac and psychological problems, partial loss of vision and other ailments that are due to be diagnosed.They received their jail sentences in August 2006 on charges of “possession of illegal firearms or ammunition.” Muradova, the correspondent of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty’s Turkmen service was tried and convicted at the same time but died in September 2006 after being beaten by guards in Ovodan Depe high security prison, to the north of the capital Ashgabat.All three journalists were arrested after helping Galaxie-Presse, a French TV production company, make a documentary on Turkmenistan for the France 2 programme Envoyé Spécial.No convincing investigation was ever conducted into Muradova’s death, while Amanklychev and Khadjiyev served their sentences in almost complete isolation in a prison in an extremely hot desert region near the western city of Turkmenbashi.Reporters Without Borders twice occupied the Turkmen embassy in Paris, in 2006 and 2008, to press for an explanation for Muradova’s death and to demand the release of her two colleagues.Turkmenistan has for years been ranked among the last three countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, along with North Korea and Eritrea. to go further Coronavirus off limits in Turkmenistan Four-year jail term for independent website’s correspondent in Turkmenistan Organisation Help by sharing this information News December 18, 2020 Find out more March 31, 2020 Find out more February 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists freed after seven years in prison in appalling conditions March 13, 2020 Find out more

Moreover, the organisation asked the minister to do everything possible to ensure that those responsible are identified and punished.According to information gathered by RSF, Fernández García, editor of the weekly “Nueva Opción”, distributed in Tamaulipas State (north-eastern Mexico), was shot dead on 18 January in Miguel Alemán city, in Tamaulipas State. The journalist had recently reported in “Nueva Opción” on alleged relations between former Mayor Miguel Alemán, Raúl Rodríguez Barrera and drug traffickers. In 2001, the journalist had informed police of these relations. A few days before his death, the journalist had accused the former mayor of wanting to kill him. Two bodyguards had been protecting Fernández García and were present the day he was killed. The journalist had previously worked at a daily owned by Rodríguez Barrera, before joining the daily “Nueva Opción”.

MM/Link MM/Duty MM”, said the Court.The Case against the AccusedAccording to the FIR dated 25.02.2020, which was registered on the complaint of one Mohd. Imran – in the evening of 24.02.2020, the complainant (one Mohd. Imran), was going to his factory from his home and at about 5.20 PM, he reached near Kardam Puri Pulia where he saw a huge crowd and stopped there.Complainant alleged that he saw that his younger brother Furkan, 30 years old, was also standing on the Pulia. The Complainant parked his scooty there and called his brother Furkan, who on hearing his voice, turned back and started walking towards the complainant (his brother) and suddenly Furkan fell there and the complainant immediately reached out to Furkan and saw that blood was oozing out from the left leg of Furkan as a bullet had hit his left leg.He was immediately taken to GTB Hospital, wherein the hospital administration, after examination, declared Furkan as dead.During the course of investigation related to this Case, on 12.03.2020, secret information was received and thereby, the present accused Anwar Hussain was arrested.Allegedly, he confessed to his crime (murder-cum-riots) which took place at Kardam Puri Puliya. Allegedly, Anwar Hussain was a part of the unlawful gathering and was seen actively participating in the riots.It was argued that accused Anwar Hussain is liable for the criminal acts committed by any member of the illegal mob which gathered on 24.02.2020 at the spot where Furkan was murdered.It was further submitted that TIP was refused by the accused. Lastly, it was prayed that the bail application of Anwar Hussain (Accused/Applicant) be dismissed.Court’s OrderThe Court, in its order, noted that the prosecution relied upon one video footage of 23.02.2020 where accused (Anwar Hussain) is allegedly shown as a participant of an unlawful gathering at Kardam Puri Puliya. The Court took into account the fact that the complainant in the case (Furkan’s brother) was not an eye witness in the matter.To this, the Court said,”The footage was seen and without going into the merits of the nature of the involvement of the accused in the said footage, it can be clearly stated that for whatever footage depicts of the incident of 23.02.2020, by no stretch of criminal liability, can be accounted for the offence of riot and murder committed on 24.02.2020. Thus, the video footage is not of the day of the incident of 24.02.2020 but of 23.02.2020.”The Court further said,”Clearly this is not incriminating clinching evidence of involvement of accused in riots of 24.02.2020. During further investigation, a supplementary charge sheet was filed after Afsar/witness had, in his statement on 24.06.2020, given the name of the present accused Anwar Hussain as participating in the riot.”Consequently, the accused-applicant Anwar Hussain was admitted on bail. The court directed him not to tamper with evidence or leave Delhi without its prior permission.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

This will be via a 66 million share issue and a new £75 million loan from its existing lenders with a four-year term.“Accordingly, Countrywide shareholders should take no further action in connection with the Proposed Transaction,” says Williams.“In the meantime, the Board will continue to engage with its shareholders to examine all potential options to deliver a sustainable capital structure for the Company and to maximise shareholder value.”Although the statement does not mention it, it is likely that the deal would also have to be approved by the competition regulator the CMA; 600-branch Connells is ultimately owned by the Skipton Building Society, which also operates the Sequence chain of estate agent branches.Andrew Stanton Sequence connells Countrywide November 9, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 9th November 2020 at 10:09 amCan wounded Dinosaur Countrywide plc with its failed ‘back to basics’ change into a ‘back to profits’ enterprise if it swops management team at the top, and has cash.
