Throughout the year it will hold a number of events to mark 14 decades of “faithful outreach to families of all faiths and none.”The Mothers’ Union was formed in 1876, when Mary Sumner brought together parents in her own Hampshire parish to build their confidence in bringing up their children. Since then it has grown to an organization of more than four million women – and men – in more than 80 countries of the world and continues to encourage parents in looking after children, not only physically and mentally but also spiritually. From the outset, the Mothers’ Union recognized that strong relationships and the role of family, however defined, are crucial in building healthy communities.“Whilst the ways in which we operate to fulfill that need may be different from that of the world of the 19th century, our vision today is still of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships. This is the essence of our work,” the agency says on its website. “We aim to show our Christian faith by the transformation of communities worldwide. We can do this through the promotion of stable marriage, family life and the protection of children. This is our mission. It is what we aim to achieve.”“In the first book of Samuel he marks an unlooked for victory against the mighty Philistines by erecting a stone, naming it ‘Ebenezer’ – meaning ‘stone of help’ – as a permanent reminder of the leading and guidance of God: ‘Thus far has the Lord helped us,’” a spokesman said. “Over the past 140 years, Mothers’ Union has faced, and will continue to face, many challenges. Family life is under increasing pressure and the call on charitable resources is higher today than ever before. But we can look at how we are meeting these challenges and say, like Samuel, ‘Thus far has the Lord helped us.’”A special anniversary celebration service will be held at Winchester Cathedral, England, on Sept. 22 – where the Mothers’ Union was founded; and service resources are being made available to help local churches hold their own Mother Union anniversary services on Mothering Sunday (March 6), Lady Day (April 4), and Mary Sumner Day (August 9).The Mothers’ Union has also set itself a fundraising challenge of £1.4 million to support is work providing practical action to support 500,000 throughout the year.The Mothers’ Union is engaged in daily prayer for next week’s Primates Meeting. On its website, the agency says: “Whilst Mothers’ Union is an autonomous organisation, our close fellowship and shared mission in many parts of the world mean that the meeting of the Primates of the Communion which will be held in Canterbury, UK, 11 – 16 January, will be held in the hearts of all Mothers’ Unions around the world. Therefore, please join us in prayer as we pray daily for the Bishops and Archbishops attending the meeting.”The Mothers’ Union has published its own prayers as well as linking to the litany for the Primates Meeting prepared by the Anglican Communion secretary general, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon.

Ethics complaint filed against Kilsheimer

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Reply May 4, 2017 at 1:35 pm No – It’s NOT self-explanatory. If the Kilsheimers can put out there that two people turned down the chance to file a complaint, back it up with some names. Mrs Kilsheimer said “There are no secrets”. If the names aren’t revealed, that’s a secret. Just like the “Well known outside business pursuits of the late Mayor Land” – just another secret that Cliff Shepard doesn’t want to tell us about. Reply A couple of weeks ago Mayor Joe spoke out on his new business venture. While justifying this outside business pursuit, he had the city attorney examine the pursuit, and the city attorney wrote that he did not see a conflict. One of the interesting reasons he cited for this interpretation was “This also seems consistent with the manner in which this provision was interpreted by former Mayor (John) Land upon his well known outside business pursuits”. REALLY?? To date, the only Well-Known Outside Business Pursuit that has been discovered was when Mayor was a part time job and received part time pay and former Mayor (John) Land started a business selling orange crates. Would be of interest to hear about these Well-Known Outside Business Pursuits that City Attorney Cliff Shepard is referring to. There are no secrets. I’m not sure why the voice didn’t post the full story with all the details. The person who filed the complaint is Missy Fowler Touchet. Michael Heaton May 2, 2017 at 8:26 am Michael Heaton Mama Mia May 4, 2017 at 11:17 pm Who filed the ethic complaint? Is Frank “Cup N Cracker”, the former City of Apopka attorney who was going to be fired by Mayor K, but instead resigned his position, still one who sits on the ethic commission board and collectively with the other board members, determine whether the ethic complaints before them are punishable or not? What are the punishments of such a complaint, if found to be valid? They NEVER find any ethic complaints against Trump to be valid…..!!! Why is that??? Michael Heaton Reply It’s an issue. Point blank. I wish the mayor would see that and wait until he is not a mayor to seek federal funds and be partners with someone who is getting 55,000 to lead discussions about education in Apopka. Do better. Reply May 2, 2017 at 1:22 pm UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Cheryl Kilsheimer As Mrs Kilsheimer knows who filed the complaint and Mayor Joe stated that two people had declined filing an ethics complaint, I’m sure Mayor Joe’s informants know the names of these two, so it does really matter who the names of these two are, as maybe they will say why they turned down filing a complaint. We could speculate all day, but the Kilscheimers most likely could immediately clear that up. If Mayor Joe was told that his opposition was “shopping” for someone to file an ethics complaint against him and that two people had turned them down, I wonder who the two people are that “turned them down”? Mrs Kilsheimer let us know who it is that filed the complaint. Would be nice to know who the two are that “turned them down”. Could it be Annie Cunningham and Suzanne Kidd? Reply TAGSApopka Mayor Joe KilsheimerFlorida Commission on Ethics Previous articleNew sandwich shop opening in ApopkaNext articleEducation is the silver bullet that enhances EVERYTHING Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR May 4, 2017 at 12:40 am Reply Reply Mike Mama Mia Michael Heaton Reply May 2, 2017 at 10:37 pm May 3, 2017 at 10:13 pm Reply Mama Miacenter_img Reply Apopka Mayor responds on social mediaAn ethics complaint was filed against Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer with the Florida Commission on Ethics (FCE) apparently in regards to his involvement with the Certified Second Chance (CSC).In February of 2017,  Kilsheimer and three partners formed CSC as a for-profit social purpose corporation. One of the partners is Allan Chernoff, who is the chief operating officer of the City of Life Foundation, a non-profit organization in Orlando which is being funded by the City of Apopka to manage a program to improve Apopka-area schools.Mayor Joe KilsheimerCSC is designed to give felons re-entering society a chance to prove themselves through third-party verification of obligations they meet to gain employment. CSC is seeking $500,000 from the State of Florida to begin the company through a request introduced by State Senator Randolph Bracy of Orlando.The ethics complaint could hinge on Kilsheimer’s relationship with Chernoff. The City of Life Foundation, which Chernoff is COO, has received a total of $55,000 from the City of Apopka to manage the “Apopka Begins and Ends with A” program for the past two years.The question being raised focuses on the fact that Kilsheimer, who has obtained $55,000 in taxpayer funding for Chernoff’s organization, would be a business partner with Chernoff if CSC were to receive funding from the State and become a working business.The Apopka Voice asked Kilsheimer if he believed it was a conflict to go into business with Chernoff, but Kilsheimer looked beyond that potential conflict-of-interest to point to the greater good CSC would do.“This is a project beyond my role as mayor of the city of Apopka,” Kilsheimer said. “This is a project I’ve been working on since before I was elected mayor, even before I was elected as a city commissioner. We were focused on the benefit we were trying to provide, and the good we were going to do.”As for the complaint received by the FCE, Kilsheimer responded on his “Re-elect Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer” Facebook page.“Friends, the next election for Apopka mayor is still more than 11 months away, but it’s clear some people want the campaign to begin now. More than three weeks ago, I was warned that my political opponents were “shopping” for someone to file an ethics complaint against me with the Florida Ethics Commission. I was informed that two people had turned them down. Well, the third time must have been the charm. I was officially notified Friday that an Apopka resident has filed an ethics complaint against me. I spoke to a lawyer in Tallahassee Friday — an expert in these issues — who assured me that the filing of ethics charges is a well-known campaign tactic in Florida. (And it recently happened in another local race here). The complaint relates to the work I have undertaken — even before I entered public office — to find a better way for former felons to re-enter society. This is a major social and economic challenge facing our state, and our nation. I firmly believe that the complaint is without merit and that the Ethics Commission will find in my favor. Nonetheless, it is an ordeal that Cheryl and I must endure, and part of the price one must pay to serve in public office. I post this here today so that my friends and supporters will hear it from me first, rather than from another source.”Once a complaint is filed with the FCE, it goes through the following stages:a. Determination of whether the allegations of the complaint are legally sufficient, that is, whether they indicate a possible violation of any law over which the Commission has jurisdiction.b. If the complaint is found to be legally sufficient, the Commission’s investigative staff will begin an investigation.c. The investigative report is forwarded to the Commission Advocate.d. The Advocate’s recommendation will be heard by the Commission acting in a quasi-judicial capacity.e. If the Commission finds that there is no probable cause to believe that there has been a violation of the ethics laws, the complaint will be dismissed and will become public when that order is rendered.f. If the Commission finds that there is probable cause to believe there has been a violation of the ethics laws, the complaint becomes public.g. The ALJ’s findings, or the stipulated agreement, is then forwarded to the Commission for final action. May 2, 2017 at 3:46 pm Mama Mia May 4, 2017 at 9:05 am That’s exactly why it would be interesting to know the persons that turned down filing the ethics complaint to know their reasoning? Mike, I could definitely be wrong, but the two people whose names you mention above…..I doubt it. Doesn’t matter anyway……. Reply May 4, 2017 at 12:06 am It’s now being talked about now Because election time Mallory Walters Reply Reply Mama Mia Let me clear it up for you. A person who files a ethic complaint against an elected official can be sued if the ethic board does not find that the complaint is a valid violation of the ethic laws. Michael Heaton Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Apopka Resident Reply Please enter your comment! So if Joe was so passionate about this cause why is the public JUST now hearing about it? Why are they just now forming a partnership. I don’t care who is shopping around to file ethics charges but it is clear that Joe just gave them reason to file those charges. Not only is Joe currently involved with City of Light, his history with this organization goes way back based on State filings by the City of Light. Joe has given his opposition all the fuel they needed to file these ethics complaints. Do NOT start blaming the opposition. May 3, 2017 at 11:09 pm 14 COMMENTS Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Is it possible that the lady who filed the ethic complaint against Mayor K, might be thinking of running for the city council??? Just speculating and guessing, not stating facts……thanks Cheryl for answering my question as to who filed the ethics complaint, as I was really wondering who it was.

Why New Zealand do the Haka

first_imgSaturday Nov 29, 2008 Why New Zealand do the Haka A week after seeing Wales stand up to and stare down the Haka, debate continues to flow about what is in fact the correct way to face the famous prematch ritual. Some have taken it one step further, questioning why it is that New Zealand are actually given the right to perform the Haka at all. ADVERTISEMENTFor years individuals have moaned that it gives the All Blacks a huge advantage over the opposition, and that it should be stopped as it is quite simply unfair.The reality of the situation is that it is, first and foremost, a tradition. It’s also a hugely valuable piece of showmanship that goes along way towards adding to not only the mystique of the All Blacks, but towards the charisma of rugby itself.Opinions are mixed surrounding the issue, as always, and earlier in the year we even heard Australian commentator Phil Kearns mumble on a live broadcast Get rid of it.An English journalist wrote in a well known newspaper last week that the Haka has become tirelessly irksome.“Both rugby codes have been subjected this month to a tedious basinful of this now charmless eye-rolling, tongue-squirming dance. Now the haka is an over-rehearsed, over-choreographed production number with a nasty malignant edge to it,” he added.All Black legend Buck Shelford has rubbished those comments, saying that the use of the war dance is appropriate as a game of rugby is like a war. It is a sign of respect to the opposition after all.ADVERTISEMENT“In our culture the haka is about pride and mana and it’s about a challenge to the opposition.”Sure, there are always critics of the Haka, and of how it is performed by certain individuals, but there is no doubt that it is not only a bone tingling challenge to the opposition, but a fantastic marketing tool for the sport of rugby. Its something special that has the power to intrigue and engage even those whove never seen the sport before.The recent Munster and All Black clash drew in record viewers, and last weeks Welsh standoff will go down in rugby folklore as a historic moment for our sport.As explained by former All Black fullback Glen Osborne, it is simply about the tradition and the challenge. As a team, how you face it is up to you. Kick a ball around like David Campese, get up close like Richard Cokerill, or stare them down like the Welsh.ADVERTISEMENTThe fact of the matter is, the Haka is here to stay, so lets enjoy the confrontation from both sides, and rather than criticise it lets try understand and embrace it.

However, the sign-up window is now limited to three days in advance in an effort to reduce no-shows and allow more students to sign up. “People were making reservations further in advance than their schedules allowed them to fit their workouts into their schedule,” Iorizzo said. “By decreasing [the reservation period] we did see a decrease in the number of no-shows.”Part of the issue, Iorizzo said, is that there has been a steady 30% no-show rate since they made the switch. The fastest time blocks to fill up are 3 to 7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., respectively, leaving many students forced to reserve a 6 to 9 a.m. or 8 to 11 p.m. slot, or to skip the gym altogether. “If the time I wanted [to work out] was full, I would probably just take the day off, because the slots tend to not open back up,” said Xavier Lopez, sophomore economics major.People who cannot fulfill their reservations often don’t cancel them.“As Frogs, we can do our part, and if you have a reservation, obviously keep that reservation, and if you don’t have a reservation, try and make one as people cancel their reservations,” said Iorizzo.Correction: In the video above, Xavier Lopez is listed as a first-year pre-major. The article clarifies that Lopez is a sophomore economics major.

Film footage of County Limerick event sparks call for coursing ban

first_imgTwitter Limerick campaigner seeks referendum on animal rights Limerick man celebrating ban on wild animals in circuses TAGSArdpatrick and Kilfinane Hare Coursing ClubcoursingIrish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS)Irish Coursing ClubJohn Carmodylimerick Limerick animal rights group cease operations THE Irish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS) have called for a permanent ban on hare coursing following allegations of animals being “savagely mauled” at a coursing event in County Limerick last weekend.Anti blood sports campaigners captured horrific footage of hares being struck multiple times and mauled into the ground by the muzzled dogs at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing event.“It exposes the myth of cruelty-free coursing that the government claims has been the result of muzzling greyhounds at Irish hare coursing events,” animal rights activist John Fitzgerald said of the footage.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The cruelty was filmed despite frenzied efforts by the coursing club to prevent filming by positioning vehicles to block the vision and paths of the camera people. The film shows the unfortunate hares being savaged and shows one of them being put down by a dispatcher who is running off the field with the doomed animal,” he explained.ICABS intend to present this latest footage to Arts and Heritage Minister Heather Humphreys as further evidence that “hare coursing is beyond reform and that the so-called regulations introduced to protect hares are worthless”.“Witnessing these appalling scenes at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing meeting, it was never clearer that the time has come for this shameful bloodsport to be finally banned in Ireland,” an ICABS spokesman told the Limerick Post.“ICABS is again contacting Minister Humphreys, the Taoiseach and the National Parks and Wildlife Service to demand an immediate withdrawal of the 2017-18 coursing licence.”They are also calling on Limerick people to contact their local TDs and urge them to back a ban on hare coursing.Limerick animal rights activist John Carmody described coursing as “a ghastly reminder of how backward and outdated we are as a nation and how indifferent we are to the plight of these gentle creatures”.“How can the Government on one hand ban the use of wild animals in circuses and yet allow this most grotesque activity that has went well beyond its time — from an era when we knew no better?” he asked.There was no response from the Irish Coursing Club at the time of going to print.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleLimerick schools send the Fairtrade messageNext articleFontaine Zing will enhance lovelife in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin NewsLocal NewsFilm footage of County Limerick event sparks call for coursing banBy Alan Jacques – November 23, 2017 3784 Emailcenter_img Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Pregnant hares held in Glin coursing compound Print Facebook John marks 21 years at the forefront of animal rights Limerick woman highlights plight of circus elephantslast_img read more
