Especially 1865 Firehouse Lane, the only address on the road, and the future home of Apopka Fire Station #5.Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale briefed the City Council on the progress for the completion of the new fire station at a workshop meeting held Wednesday afternoon. The new station will serve the residents and businesses north of Ponkan Road according to Carnesale. That area is currently served by Fire Station #2.“This should greatly reduce response times,” Carnesale said.Later at the City Council meeting, the Final Development Plan was approved 5-0 by Mayor Joe Kilsheimer and City Commissioners.Fire Station #5 will be approximately 7,500 square feet and will include a living/sleeping area for six firefighters and a District Chief. It will have four parking bays that can hold two ambulances, a fire truck, a brush truck, a rescue squad, and a District Chief vehicle, according to Carnesale.During his presentation, Carnesale pointed out that the 2015-16 budget included $300,000 for Fire Station #5, and added an additional $800,000 in the 2016-17 budget. However after General Contractor Todd Albagh from Miller Construction received bids from subcontractors, the cost to build rose to $1,583,000. City Administrator Glenn Irby explained that the $500,000-$600,000 shortfall could be made up by using General Fund reserves, or by including the additional amount in the 2017-18 budget. The consensus of the Council was to add the amount to the next budget. Despite the increase, Carnesale insists there are no bells and whistles at Fire Station #5. Everything in the plan is a necessity.“This is a no frills station,” Carnesale said. “Basically it will get the job done and keep the firefighters safe.”The project is scheduled to begin construction in May, with a completion date in November of 2017. Fire Station #5 is the first fire built for the AFD in 12 years. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address!

We’ve all been guilty of planning to go out and hike, climb, run, or take part in some form of outdoor recreation and let dismal weather be the excuse to not go for it. It’s in times like those that it is good to know what options you have to still get your adventure on, but under a roof. Here are a few options for outdoor enthusiasts that don’t want the rainy days to hold them back.By no means do these options compare to the fresh air, beautiful scenery, and thrill that the outdoor experience provides, but they do give you a great way to keep your body in motion, practice some new skills, and build strength all while increasing the level of confidence in your skills.An inside look at Louisville’s Mega Cavern inside mountain biking course.Photo by Team Neon VeloIndoor mountain bike courses are an incredible find, but are not found as easily as indoor stationary bikes. With these courses, you get to have the full body experience and dirt-to-wheel connection that is so rare to find anywhere indoors. These courses are a favorite for bike junkies to have a place to pedal throughout the winter months as well. Indoor mountain bike courses to look for in the Blue Ridge include The Wheel Mill of Pennsylvania and Kentucky’s Mega Cavern.Rock climbing gyms are all over the Blue Ridge and are ideal for people of any skill set from first time climbers to those with extensive experience. Rock climbing can burn between 500 to 900 calories per hour making these gyms a great option for summer workouts. An added bonus is that you’re harnessed in with a staff supervised belaying system with mats underneath, providing a safe and forgiving environment in the event that you fall or make a mistake.Paddling pools are unique in that with limited space and the right equipment, they can simulate a real rowing experience you would find in open waters. From kayaking to rowing, paddle pools hold still water for you to paddle through and test maneuvers through classes and events such as roll clinics where you get to practice how to get right side up in the event that you flipped over in your kayak going down a river. More recently, some of these indoor paddling pools feature rowing tanks. With the intention to improve endurance and technique, the tanks mimic the conditions of open waters as rower sit in fixed positions and different aspects of the moving waters in the tank can be shifted to attempt to recreate specific water types and conditions. Depending on the paddle pool near you, there may even be options to paddle board as well.Check out what indoor recreation options you have in your area and before you know it, you’ll be hitting the water, climbing rock faces, and shredding the trails all while being inside.
By AFP December 17, 2019 On December 7, the Peruvian Navy seized a small submarine with a crew of four carrying more than 1 ton of cocaine bound for Mexico, the Peruvian Office of the Attorney General reported on December 11.“The drug found in the submersible is cocaine, as determined by the tests we’ve carried out,” Peruvian Attorney General Jorge Chávez, prosecution coordinator against organized crime, told AFP.“We’re weighing the cargo right now. We’re talking about more than 1 ton of cocaine, [but] we are still weighing” the drug found inside the narco-submarine, which was captured in open waters off the northern Peruvian coast, he added.The Navy initially said that the submersible, about 66 feet long, carried about “4,409 pounds of illicit substances,” but the attorney general has confirmed that it was cocaine.Authorities detained the submersible’s four crew members — two Colombians, one Mexican, and one Ecuadorean.Chávez explained that the vessel was loaded “in the Ecuadorean mangroves” near the Peruvian border, also a wetland area.The attorney general did not explain why the submersible entered Peruvian territorial waters, located south of Ecuador, if it intended to navigate north to reach Mexico.The narco-submarine, which was painted in grey to camouflage it with the sea and built with a small hole on the upper surface for crew access, was towed to the port of Paita, about 620 miles north of Lima.“This is the first submersible caught in Peru. So far, we know that the vessel was bound for Mexico,” said Chávez, who is in charge of the investigations in Paita.“We’re asking the Navy to make a technical report on how it was built,” he said, adding that “the drug and the detainees will be taken to Lima.”“We don’t know what international organization they belong to,” he said.The boat was intercepted December 7, 178 nautical miles off the coastal town of Talará, 31 miles north of Paita.Drug cartels began to use submarines frequently in 2005, experts say, and it is believed that they are built in Colombia, Ecuador, or Guyana.Peru produces more than 400 tons of cocaine a year, the national anti-drug agency reported, and most of it is “exported” by sea.Together with Colombia and Bolivia, Peru is one of the largest producers of coca leaf and cocaine worldwide, says the United Nations.
Selling your home is a big decision that requires significant preparation, including listing your property and meeting with potential agents. Once you’ve done that, it can still take weeks or even months to find a buyer, depending on the market.With all that in mind, it’s important to know the current best practices for selling your home. Following these five tips will lead to a better experience.1. Spruce up your online listingA recent National Association of Realtors study found that nearly 90% of homebuyers use the internet to house hunt. If your online listing is drab and uninviting, you’re already turning off potential buyers. Start by updating it with clear and colorful images of your property. You could even get creative and post a love letter video about your home on YouTube. If you really want to use technology to your advantage, consider renting a drone camera and filming a video that gives potential buyers a 360-degree view of your property. continue reading » 28SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

The triple-A rating is the highest rating assigned by the agency, which indicates the lowest expectation of default risks relative to other obligations in the country. Indonesian rating agency Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo), on the other hand, has assigned the company a rating of idAAA, Pefindo’s highest rating, and said in a press release published on March 26 that the outlook for the company’s corporate rating was stable. “The corporate rating reflects the strong support Pupuk Indonesia has received from the government, given its important role in providing and distributing subsidized fertilizer in the country,” analysts Niken Indriarsih and Umar Harreddy said in the press release. Pupuk Indonesia finance director Indarto Pamoengkas said during the press conference that the pandemic had adversely affected the company’s sales but it was still able to record growth during the health crisis.“As of May, we saw a 10 percent annual increase in revenue,” Indarto said.

Its revenue from the sales of commercial fertilizer rose by 38.35 percent to Rp 7.54 trillion as the volume of the commercial fertilizer sold soared by 47.45 percent to 2.01 million tons. Meanwhile, the company reported that the sale of its subsidized fertilizer or public service obligation (PSO) product from January to May amounted to 3.93 million tons. In 2019, the company booked a net profit of Rp 3.71 trillion, down by 11.9 percent from 2018’s net profit of Rp 4.12 trillion. Its total sales and other revenue, including from products sold and subsidy reimbursements from the government, amounted to Rp 71.31 trillion, up 2.68 percent yoy. Topics : State-owned fertilizer holding firm PT Pupuk Indonesia will be offering bonds worth Rp 2.5 trillion (US$169 million) as part of a funding diversification strategy, a company executive has said. The bond offering is the first phase of the shelf registration of conventional bonds (PUB) II for 2020 with a total value of Rp 8 trillion and is scheduled for Aug. 14 to 18. “We are planning to use the proceeds to refinance our loans, either for the holding company or its subsidiaries.

Loading… Neymar arriving at his 28th birthday celebration in Paris on SundayThe Brazilian – who sported a pink hair-do in the win against Montpellier – organised a lavish celebration ahead of his 28th birthday at a Parisian nightclub in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower on Sunday, including an all-white dress code. Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel on Monday attempted to play down a touchline spat with Kylian Mbappe which overshadowed the French champions’ big weekend win over Montpellier. “There is nothing personal between him and me. These things happen,” said Tuchel after Mbappe reacted angrily to being substituted midway through the second half of PSG’s 5-0 victory at the Parc des Princes, with Mauro Icardi taking his place. PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has tried to play down his very visible spat with Kylian Mbappe during the Ligue 1 leaders’ weekend win over Montpellier “It was between a player who does not want to come off, and a coach who had his reasons for doing something, and who wanted to give a game to players who deserved it.” After Saturday’s match, Tuchel admitted that the reaction of Mbappe “doesn’t look good” and pointed out that: “This is football, not tennis, and you have to respect everyone.” The 21-year-old World Cup winner, who had scored his 14th league goal of the season in the victory, exchanged words with Tuchel as he came off, and then stormed to his seat on the bench, throwing away a training top in disgust. Tuchel said he discussed the matter again at training on Sunday, with the player and with Leonardo, the club’s sporting director. “I spoke about it yesterday with Leo, of course, and with the squad, as we generally do. But what I said will remain in the dressing room,” added Tuchel, speaking before PSG return to league action on Tuesday away to Nantes. Returning to the incident, he added: “We had the game wrapped up, and it was a chance to take off Pablo (Sarabia) and Kylian, and put on Mauro and ‘Edi’ (Cavani), who deserved to get some minutes. “I know it is hard to accept for some players, but these are sporting matters that they should be able to understand.” – Neymar birthday ‘not the best’ preparation – With PSG returning to action in midweek, and also having a Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund looming ever closer on the horizon, Tuchel could also be excused for being less than impressed with Neymar’s latest off-field antics. Tuchel insisted that the event, to which Neymar invited all his team-mates, would not have an influence on his team selection for Tuesday’s trip to face a Nantes side who sit ninth in the table. The Brazilian, however, will not be risked due to a rib complaint, the club said late on Monday. “I always protect my players, and I really love my team. With this party, I accept that it is a bit difficult to protect the players, but the context is not simply black or white,” Tuchel said. Read Also: Mbappe could be punished for angry reaction, PSG boss Tuchel “Is it the best way to prepare for a match? No, clearly not. Is it the worst thing in the world? No. “It is a shame, because we are giving people the chance to speak badly of us. We need to adapt to the situation, but I am not going to leave a player on the bench or at home because they went out and celebrated.” PSG, who are 12 points clear of Marseille at the Ligue 1 summit, do have defensive injury problems just now, though, with Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Juan Bernat and Colin Dagba all out of Tuesday’s game.

By Craig Lawrence, Slocan Valley Rec. Commission The Kootenay Slocan Lions Club have recently received a grant through the Government of Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Program to keep seniors (55+) active. The purpose of the Seniors on Bikes and Skis (SOB’s) is to allow seniors to pursue some healthy outdoor activities enjoying the Slocan Valley in all seasons. It will also give senior novice skiers the opportunity to try out an activity before deciding on whether they want to commit to purchasing their own equipment. The Lions have used the funds to purchase a variety of cross country ski packages and bicycles (including electric assist) and will be making them available to seniors in the Slocan Valley in the months ahead. Starting in January, the ski equipment will be available to seniors throughout the valley. To access the equipment, contact either Don Munro (project organizer) at 250-226-7855 or Slocan Valley Recreation 250-226-0008. For those needing a little bit of help getting started, Slocan Valley Recreation will be hosting a ski/training day on Monday, Jan. 10 beginning at 10 a.m., meeting at the Slocan Park Hall. Everyone will be going out and enjoying a ski along the Slocan Valley Rail Trail. After that, skis must be pre-booked for use. A limited number of skis are available, so please let us know if you want to use them. In the months ahead, the group will be providing several bicycles (including a four-wheel bike), some of which will have electric assist, to help seniors reach a little farther. These too, will have to be pre-booked and it’s expected they will be popular. The Kootenay Slocan Lions are working with the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society on this project, and the Slocan Valley Rail Trail is the primary location that all equipment will be used on. To find out more about the project, contact the numbers noted above.
