Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Commissioner Sam Ruth took a hit on March 15th when challenger Doug Bankson beat him in the general election; outdistancing Ruth with 3,875 votes to Ruth’s 3,426. But today’s runoff will probably look a lot different than the March election. Will Ruth prove his ability to take a punch and keep standing?Commissioner Sam Ruth will defend Seat #3 against Doug Bankson today.Candidate Feature – Commissioner Sam Ruth Seat #3 incumbentSam Ruth is a fighter. His many years of coaching and playing sports has given him a competitor’s heart. He speaks in a booming voice with a plainspoken manner and an outspoken attitude. He has the look and presence of a pugilist from another era, but the mindset to look forward into Apopka’s future. Ruth is the incumbent Commissioner of Seat #3 and he is defending his seat against Doug Bankson in today’s runoff.He ran for the City Commission three times before winning a seat in 2014, and because of this he sees his mission as a messenger of the people.“I love Apopka. I love its people. I spent 26 years coaching at Apopka High School. Both football and baseball. I was a part of a lot of great teams. State champions. Now I’m in a new arena – the political arena. I want people to know I will champion their message because their message is the most valuable thing that I have. That’s my job, that’s my sole purpose… to be their messenger. I can do what their four minutes (speaking at a City Council meeting) can’t do – I can vote.”He has lived in Apopka almost all of his life, but it’s the last two years he speaks of with pride.I love Apopka. I love its people. And I’m pretty proud of what we’ve done in the last two years. We’ve tackled some pretty big issues and I challenge anyone to say we’re not better off than we were 24 months ago.”“22 months ago we were doing crime statistics by hand. We were on Novel-Dos. We’ve upgraded the entire IT Department. It was a 30-year old system that we brought into the 21st century. And we had a City Council that was willing to finance this new IT department.”He also speaks highly of the investment the City has made in leadership.“Our new department heads are better than the ones we had. I think the City Attorney we have today is better than the one we had. I think the City Administrator is better. I think our Finance Director is as good or equal to the previous director. I think our Police Chief is going to raise the APD to a level it’s never been. We have a Parks and Recreation Director that we didn’t have before. We have a Grants Writer we didn’t have. We have a Public Information Officer. That’s by far one of the best investments we’ve made. We had no presence with the media before this. I’m pretty proud of what we’ve done in the last two years. We’ve tackled some pretty big issues and I challenge anyone to say we’re not better off than we were 24 months ago.”He also sees the future of Apopka as undecided but exciting, and he wants to help shape the vision to come, and champion its advance.“We don’t have an identity anymore. We were the foliage capitol of the world… we no longer have that identity. I’m excited to see what we’re going to do. But however we re-define ourselves, I want to make sure we have a message and a champion to defend it.”“We don’t have an identity anymore. We were the foliage capitol of the world… we no longer have that identity. But we’ve got these vast tracks of land ready to be developed. I’m excited to see what we’re going to do. But however we re-define ourselves, I want to make sure we have a message and a champion to defend it.”Ruth thinks the City Center project is a possible beginning to Apopka re-defining itself, but he has reservations about the deal with the developer.“When we have this meeting with Taurus (Taurus Southern Investments, LLC), I’ll ask the tough questions, he said.”He references “deal-breakers” that if not answered will cause Ruth to cast a “no” vote on the project. These deal-breakers are related to traffic improvements on roads within the project – McGee Avenue, 6th Street, 436 and 441. It also proposes Martin’s Pond extending to 436. All of this will need to be addressed before Ruth signs off on it.“I’m for the project, but these obstacles must be overcome.”Another concern Ruth has is the “swiss-cheese” makeup of City versus County residents. He wants to take a different approach towards bringing these “non-Apopka” residents into Apopka – inviting them.“We are about 40,000 in population in Apopka, but if you go into the un-incorporated areas we are more like 80,000. Half the people don’t know if they’re in the city or the county. I want to bridge that relationship. I want to have a greeting committee go out and invite these neighborhoods into Apopka. And that doesn’t cost anything. We can go neighborhood-to-neighborhood. Door-to-door.”Ruth also wants to champion Apopka businesses. He took the lead on making it easier for them to win contracts from The City of Apopka.“On some of these big ticket items, instead of sending a million dollars to Orlando or Jacksonville, why can’t we make it so these deals stay in Apopka?”According to Ruth, he was the catalyst on a Preferred Apopka Vendor program that allows Apopka businesses to bid 3% higher and still win contracts against out of city competitors.“And now when we write a $750,000 contract, it goes over here to Mullinax (Ford). I just think it’s a win/win for our businesses and the City. We set the preferred vendor list and Mullinax won the bid. They employee 150 people. And they will also get the service contracts for these city vehicles. Allowing them to do that allows them to employee more people.” Please enter your comment!

Family House in Klokočná / deyl-sestak-architects

first_imgPhotographs: Filip ŠlapalText description provided by the architects. An important decision for the concept of the house is to divide the structure into two parts (the main building and the “barn”, which are loosely associated with each other), connected by an entirely glassed-in neck and, together with the supporting wall, create an inner courtyard. The supporting wall logically came about as the result of leveling the terrain to match the entrance level and is interspersed with a staircase leading to the upper part of the garden. Part of the courtyard is grassed, part of it consists of a wooden terrace and part of the paved walkways line the perimeter walls.Save this picture!Site PlanThe inspiration for the basic shape of the new building is more of an economic type of historic building (the barn), which offers some proportion in the transition to contemporary, different requirements (such as the ones for larger windows and a larger number of rooms with demands for good daylight and making direct access to the site possible).Save this picture!© Filip ŠlapalIt involves sustaining a simple, traditional design with proportions and a certain natural beauty that has been validated by centuries of repeated, evolutionary refinement.Save this picture!SectionIn addition to its basic shape, the inspiration has been transformed into windows, shutters and doors designed from the ground floor up to the eaves, which interrupt a continuous wall surface with no visible lintel and thus quiets (simplifies) the façade.Save this picture!© Filip ŠlapalProject gallerySee allShow lessCANSTRUCTION® Exhibit in NYCArticlesBreathing Architecture ExhibitionArticles Share Family House in Klokočná / deyl-sestak-architects CopyAbout this officedeyl-sestak-architectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPublished on November 09, 2011Cite: “Family House in Klokočná / deyl-sestak-architects” 09 Nov 2011.

(Photo/Sharon Ellman ) printTCU trailed entering the halftime locker room but exploded in the second half of Friday afternoon’s game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, 88-67.Head coach Raegan Pebley knew heading into the game that Alabama would prove to be a tough competition.“Kristy Curry’s teams are always so athletic and good, and they challenged us a lot today with some of things they did defensively,” Pebley said.The Horned Frogs were plagued by turnovers in the first half, recording 13 in 20 minutes. However, TCU turned it loose in the third quarter as they scored 33 points and held Alabama to single-digits with nine, earning a 22-point advantage after 30 minutes of play. The Horned Frogs committed only three turnovers in the second half, all three coming in the fourth quarter.“Our first half wasn’t good, and they deserve a lot of credit for that,” Pebley said. “I really loved our second half and how we settled down while playing tougher. Taking care of the ball in that second half was huge. Our protecting the paint defensively and doing a better job offensively of owning the paint was really good.”TCU junior forward Jordan Moore continued her early-season tear as she led the Frogs in scoring with 19 points on 9-11 shooting. Moore also added eight rebounds to her totals. Horned Frog sophomore Kianna Ray added a career-high 16 points and junior Dakota Vann recorded her best scoring outing of the season, knocking down 14 points on 4-4 shooting from beyond the arc.Vann’s hot shooting sparked a 19-3 run to begin the third quarter, and TCU never looked back. With the Crimson Tide on the ropes, the Horned Frogs closed the period on a 9-0 run to ensure the victory.The third quarter saw strong play on both ends of the court by the Horned Frogs. TCU converted on 12-20 shooting, forced six Alabama turnovers while committing none of their own and only allowed three successful field goals on 15 attempts.Up next, TCU will face their second straight SEC opponent as they travel to College Station Wednesday to face the Aggies of Texas A&M.

Little things like that.But mostly the 1950s were simple and sweet times.We were as happy as hogs in slop on Saturday nights, sitting around at Hazel’s Café eating burgers and fries or honking for curb service at The Hut to order an orange drink and a slice of lemon pie.As girls, we swooned over James Dean at the walk-in picture show and mooned over Troy Donahue in “A Summer Place,” at the drive-in theater, which was dubbed “the passion pit.” I don’t have a clue as to why.Sock hops in the school auditorium were Friday night events during football season. The girls sat on one side of the auditorium and the boys on the other. The music came from a record player that was prominently placed in front of the stage and ancient teachers with sharp eyes and wagging tongues kept watch over their “broods.”Most of the time, the boys stayed in the bathroom waxing their flattops so girls had to dance with each other.The last dance at every sock hop was “Red Sails in the Sunset” by every girl’s heartthrob Tab Hunter.Most afternoons were spent reading Nancy Drew mysteries or drawing hearts and arrows in the margins of our writing tables while listening to the Troy radio station that took mail-in requests and we had plenty of them.Drugs stores, cherry Cokes and jukeboxes. Bobby socks, starched petticoats and penny loafers. The Everly Brothers, Fabian and Ricky Nelson. “Blueberry Hill,” the Hangout at Panama City and Big Bam Shows.Glass packs, mirror dice, fender skirts. Drag racing, skating rinks and “Spin the bottle” were all part of growing up in the 1950s and they were the absolute best of times.But I still don’t know what my daughter was thinking.

The 1950s were the best of times and I’m very thankful that I grew up in those tender years.The world would be a different place, a better place, if we all had grown up in a 1950s kind of world. What my daughter said kind of surprised me.“I wish I’d grown up in the 1950s.”What was she thinking?! She wouldn’t have lasted a day in the 1950s. She would have been bored to tears.The boys and girls of the 1950s, believed that storks brought babies, that Santa Claus came down the chimney and that the tooth fairy put dimes under our pillows.My daughter wouldn’t have bought any of that.
