DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. By County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe Orange County Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division (NPRD) empowers citizens to make their neighborhoods a better place. The information and resources they share bridge the gap between people who want to help, and people who have the organization to help. From identifying where improvement is needed most, to drawing up revitalization strategies and finding project resources, the NPRD is at residents’ disposal.The First Step: Gathering InformationImproving neighborhood beautification, crime prevention, and emergency preparedness starts with you. So the NPRD ensures everything residents need to know about planning a neighborhood revitalization project is readily available. One way to learn about how to improve your neighborhood is by watching the NPRD sponsored series “Connecting Neighbors and Neighborhoods.” The half-hour program is both aired on Orange TV and archived on the NPRD website. Another way is to attend the free Community Connections workshops. There, you can network with the community, participate in hands-on learning, and receive valuable information to take back into their communities. Workshop topics range from Homeowners Association and Condo Board of Directors certification training, to how to save energy and money, and engage your community. They usually occur on the second Saturday of each month, and registration, as well as a full list of upcoming workshops, can be found by visiting this link or calling (407) 836-2934.The Second Step: Getting StartedThe next step is organizing a group and planning the project. Every year Orange County publishes a Neighborhood Resource Guide that outlines how to organize meetings, work with local governments, and take advantage of the county programs and services available to assist residents in improving their neighborhoods. NPRD also publishes an annual Neighborhood Organizations Directory. Since many neighborhoods face similar problems, the directory can be used as a tool to share insightful solutions with the extensive network of local community groups and associations.Third Step: Getting the Job DoneEnsuring neighborhood revitalization projects have the resources and assistance to be seen through is critical. The NPRD provides funding when available, for neighborhood beautification and crime prevention or safety projects. Applications are accepted year round, and more information regarding grants can be found here.As for assistance, NPRD offers a mentorship program where community members can get advice from Orange County experts. To learn more about the program give NPRD a call at 407-836-2934.Stay ConnectedRight now there are two communities clean ups planned in the District 2 community! The first is Trojan Service Day which will be hosted by Evans High School on Saturday, April 01, 2017 at Evans High School. During Trojan Service Day Evan’s students will be working alongside various organizations to pick up trash, paint buildings, and garden around Meadowbrook Middle School, Westwood Heights, Forest Park, Experience Christian Center and of course the Evans High School campus. Over 400 students will attend this cleanup and volunteer their time in the local Pine Hills community.The second community clean-up being organized by District 2 will be for the Plymouth and Zellwood communities on April 29th from 8am to 12pm at the Willow Street Community Center on 6565 Willow St, Zellwood, FL 32798 and Roosevelt Nichols Park on 1601 Hermit Smith RD Apopka, FL 32712. We will have local Apopka High School students, community organizations, parents, and residents volunteering on that day.To stay connected with your community you can subscribe to NPRD’s Neighborhood Update E-Newsletter and the biannual Neighbor to Neighbor magazine. Further, you can attend the annual Community Conference, and register your neighborhood or organization to be listed in the Orange County Neighbors Organizations directory.Every year inspiring community members are recognized with Community Organization Awards, and featured in the Neighbor to Neighbor magazine. Promoting and partaking in neighborhood preservations and revitalization projects not only improves your quality of living but your neighbors. It is the Orange County Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division’s mission to “…empower citizens and businesses by engaging them in a method to identify neighborhood needs and issues so that resources can be accessed to help revitalize, strengthen, and preserve the physical, social, and economic value of Orange County neighborhoods.” Thanks to this agency and all the community leaders who organize neighborhood projects Orange County continuously improves.For further details on getting involved please contact the following:Orange County Neighborhood Preservation & Revitalization DivisionEmail: [email protected]: (407) 836-5606Bryan Nelson serves as the County Commissioner for Orange County District 2 which includes Apopka, Ocoee, Eatonville, and Northwest Orange County.

A classic try from Vilimoni Delasau at the Wellingtons Sevens 2000

first_imgThursday May 29, 2008 A classic try from Vilimoni Delasau at the Wellingtons Sevens 2000 Weve featured a fair bit of Sevens action here on Rugbydump recently. The entertainment factor of that form of the game is huge and often produces classic matches, and classic moments alike.One of those classic moments from the past would be from the inaugural Wellington tournament back in 2000. The Fijian Sevens team were up against it in the final, as they were facing a pumped up New Zealand side who were wanting to impress the strong home crowd contingent.The New Zealand team were star studded with players like Jonah Lomu, Christian Cullen and Mils Muliaina, but they struggled to match the pace of the flying Fijians.Tries were exchanged by Vunibaka and Muliaina, but it was at the 15 minute mark that we saw a one of the highlights of the match. Big Jonah Lomu was substituted after amazingly having very little impact on the game. On came local sensation Christian Cullen who was known to have the ability to turn a game in an instant.Cullen lasted less than a minute though, after a big tackle on him from Vili Satala not only created the turnover, but had Cullen retreating to the bench just as quickly as he had arrived.The turnover from the hit ended up in wizard Waisele Serevi getting the ball behind his try line, which didn’t phase him as he dazzled one defender then tossed it out to Vilimoni Delasau on the right wing. Delasau then made the game look easy, running around a bunch of Kiwis, then stepping the cover who had little effect in stopping him on his way to scoring a classic and very memorable Fijian Sevens try. Note: We love finding older clips of Sevens, and classic tries in general, so if you come across something you think would be good to share with the rugby world, please don’t hesitate to send it to us by posting a request in the forum. :: Related Posts :: Vilimoni Delasau scores another mindblowing try for Clermont Sensational Vilimoni Delasau try vs Wasps Fantastic party atmosphere at the Wellington Sevens Fiji conquer Wales in the 2007 World Cup – Great Delasau try Waisale Serevi magic vs New Zealand ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Timana Tahu leaves Union to go back to Rugby League

first_imgMonday Jul 27, 2009 Timana Tahu leaves Union to go back to Rugby League Wallaby back Timana Tahu has walked out on Australian rugby union as he wants to return to rugby league with the Parramatta Eels, it was announced last week.Reports have stated that Tahu was unhappy playing union, mainly based on the string of events that saw him spend much of his time coming off the bench.He earned four Wallaby caps, but has now walked out on the remaining two years of his ARU and Waratahs contracts, taking a reported $100 000 pay cut in the process.A league to union convert, Tahu had huge promise and the expectation for success in the 15 man game was high. He failed to deliver on his potential though, and along with a few injury problems, never quite made the impact most had hoped for.When making the switch to union, Tahu was on the list of well paid and high profile league players who converted. Lote Tuqiri, Wendell Sailor, Mat Rogers, and Ryan Cross were all on that list. Cross is the only player that remains in union.Waratahs officials said that there was little excuse for walking out mid-season.“While Timana didn’t get much game time, he was injured early on and when he did play more often towards the end of the year he showed some real flashes of brilliance,” the official said.“It was a tough back line to break into but the players thought highly enough of his contribution to award him our best back award for the year.“But if Timana doesn’t want to be here then we’re happy to work out an agreement, because you don’t want players at your club who aren’t committed. The disappointing thing is this is the second time he’s said he’s been happy in a code before switching that same week.” Time: 03:16ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

England outpace the Wallabies at Twickenham

first_imgSunday Nov 14, 2010 England outpace the Wallabies at Twickenham England got the better of Australia for the second time in succession as they beat comfortably beat the visitors 35-18 at Twickenham on Saturday in what has been described as their best performance since winning the World Cup in 2003.ADVERTISEMENTThere were signs of great things to come a week ago when going down valiantly to New Zealand, but this time around there was no doubt that this may well be a new era for English rugby as they mixed their power up front with an expansive style of play.Fullback Ben Foden has insisted its worth keeping their feet on the ground at this stage however. “Legends aren’t made out of one result,” he said.“We need to keep working and getting better and better and hopefully by the time the World Cup comes around we will be there or thereabouts. It was a pretty convincing win and we can be pretty happy with the sort of rugby we played,” Foden added.Wallaby coach Robbie Deans, whose team came into the match following wins over the All Blacks and Wales, said that he could see a big game from England on the horizon.“I have seen it growing in this England side. They played better against the All Blacks but were frustrated with where they got to. They will take a lot out of it,” Deans said.“They are broadening their game and had success with it against us. They took initiatives in speeding up the game that worked for them,” he added.ADVERTISEMENTEngland scrumhalf Ben Youngs had an outstanding game, as did Chris Ashton, who scored two fantastic tries.The second of which was started by Youngs behind their own tryline, with dynamic lock Courtney Lawes then drawing two men before releasing Ashton. The Saints flyer then put in an incredible 90m sprint to score a sensational try.“The southern hemisphere teams have to take us seriously. That was our main aim to put ourselves up there and make sure we’re competing with the big boys. That’s what we’ve gone out to do. We’ve put down a marker now,” said Foden.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Kevin The Tipster – New Zealand vs France – The Final

first_imgThursday Oct 20, 2011 Kevin The Tipster – New Zealand vs France – The Final Kevin the Tipster, the results predicting sheep, has had a pretty good run so far in the RWC. A 90% success rate includes correct predictions for both Semi Finals, so today he’s had a go at the final. You can watch the video to see who the Tipster goes for, as he aims to add to his very impressive 35 from 39 correct predictions. We can tell you though that Paddy Power have already paid out over £600,000 in winnings for those who bet on New Zealand to beat France in the final. That’s right, according to them, the tournament is as good as over, so they’re not wasting any time. “New Zealand has left all of their opposition so far feeling All Black and blue and it’s inevitable us bookies will be taking a hammering from them on Sunday too so punters may as well collect now,” said their head honcho. Last weekend Paddy Power refunded Welsh punters to the value of over £200,000 following the sending off of Sam Warburton. All losing bets were scratched as they felt the call was wrong. The All Blacks were pre-tournament favourites at 4/6 while France were available at 16/1. A final between the two sides was at set at 11/2 and France, heavy underdogs at this stage, are now at 6/1 to pull off another famous upset. You can follow Kevin’s tips and place some bets with our friends at Paddy Power nowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Matt Giteau chats to Rugby HQ about his return to the Wallabies

first_imgTuesday Jul 14, 2015 Matt Giteau chats to Rugby HQ about his return to the Wallabies A few months back we wrote about how Matt Giteau could yet prove to be a key ingredient in the Wallabies’ World Cup campaign. Back then he wasn’t eligible for selection, but a turnaround has meant that he is now in camp, four years since last wearing gold and green. The Australian Rugby Union relaxed their eligibility rulings to the point that Giteau, and Toulon teammate Drew Mitchell, are now able to play for their country despite plying their trade in the south of France. It’s a ruling that while logical, just didn’t seem on the cards.Now, aged 32 and having won countless trophies with Toulon while playing with true greats of the game from all corners of the planet, Giteau finds himself back in the media spotlight.While he’s completely humble and plays down the enormity of the change in policy, his presence, and probable Test selection, could prove a masterstroke for a prolifically talented group of Wallaby players who at times perhaps just need some direction and guidance.Giteau says that his favoured position would be inside centre, but he’s just happy to contribute, while proving himself. “Every training session I am out there trying to prove myself and earn the respect of the players and the coaching staff,” he told Australia’s Daily Telegraph.“A World Cup is a huge honour and a huge occasion. It is not something I want to take lightly, or disrespect the jersey by playing if I am not up to it.“I have got to play in some big finals and we have won some comps. In those tight situations, those big games, you learn more and you become more relaxed. The more relaxed you are the better you are going to play, the more natural your game will be.”The below chat with Rugby HQ offers excellent insight into how Giteau sees Top 14 vs Super Rugby, how physical Wallaby training is, and how his brother in law would never cut it in Union.The Wallabies host South Africa this coming Saturday at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. New Zealand host Argentina on Friday.
