Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Wildlife Drive remains closedFrom the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictRepairs are underway at the St. Johns River Water Management District’s Lake Apopka North Shore, which experienced damage due to Hurricane Irma. As water levels subside and assessments are completed, the district will provide weekly updates on the status of repairs and recreation at the Lake Apopka North Shore.In addition to receiving 12 inches of rain during Hurricane Irma, the property experienced a 357-foot breach in the northeast, lake-side levee that separates Lake Apopka from the Lake Apopka North Shore. Nearly 75 percent of the 20,000-acre property flooded, overtopping trails, levees and parking areas, including parts of Lust, Laughlin, Duda North-South, Marsh Rabbit and Marsh Flow-Way roads. Currently, many parts remain underwater and cannot be inspected.On Sept. 27, the district completed work to patch the section of the lake-side levee that separates Lake Apopka from the Lake Apopka North Shore. Using fill dirt brought in by trucks, the repair was a priority as it now allows the district to manage water levels on the rest of the property. It will also help stabilize the road/levee and allow additional work for a permanent fix.The placement of a floating barrier to minimize additional damage from wave action, and the addition of fill material, is expected to be complete by the end of this week.Until water levels return to previous levels, and the district can complete assessments of the entire property, a timeline for work, cost estimates and reopening the property is not available. There are many variables, like weather, that will determine the timeline and cost.The district is monitoring water quality and participates in weekly updates with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the topic. Previous restoration work on the formerly farmed lands encapsulated contaminated top soil. District staff continue to analyze data for the recently flooded areas and have found that the open water conditions, a result of flooding, will not put fish-eating birds at unacceptable risk.The recent flooding hasn’t negatively affected the wildlife.Understanding that the area is a popular outdoor recreation destination, the Red Trail, off County Road 448A, and the McDonald Canal Boat Ramp, are open.To ensure public safety, and minimize potential damage to saturated roads, no other openings are planned at this point due to flooding and the continued presence of heavy equipment. The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive and nonmotorized Lake Apopka Loop Trail remain closed. As soon as the district determines that the public can safely access an area, it will open.For continuing updates on district operations and recreational announcements, visit the district’s website, www.sjrwmd.com.

RSF_en read in russian Reporters Without Borders today condemned the killing of Magomedzagid Varisov, the second journalist to be murdered this year in Russia, and called on interior minister Rashid Nurgaliyev to order an immediate investigation aimed at identifying both perpetrators and instigators and bringing them to justice.Varisov was gunned down at around 9 p.m. on 28 June in Makhachkala (the capital of the southwestern republic of Dagestan) as he was getting out of his car in front of his home. He died instantly, while his driver, who was wounded by several shots, was hospitalized. His wife, who was also with him, was not hit. The police said they were looking for a black Lada car which the gunmen used to get away.It seems likely that Varisov was killed because of his work as a journalist. The head of the political section of the weekly Novoye Delo, he was very critical of the Dagestan opposition in his articles. He also headed the Republican Centre for Strategic and Political Initiatives.In a recent article, he raised questions about the fact that some 1,000 refugees from the Chechen village of Borozdinovskaya (in the Chelkovsky region) crossed illegally into Dagestan after a Russian special forces raid on the village. He accused the Dagestan opposition of exploiting the situation to stir up hate between the Chechen and Dagestanian communities.Varisov’s murder came just as Novoye Delo was about to publish a second article naming those responsible for the ease of cross-border movements between Dagestan and Chechnya. Varisov and the newspaper had been receiving telephone death threats during the past year and Varisov had told his colleagues he had been followed several times.On 30 June, the www.kavkazcenter.com website posted a letter from the Wahhabi Islamist group “Sharia” claiming responsibility for the murder. “We punished the one who was the FSB collaborator, who was the spokesman for Kremlin propaganda and for those who are in power in Dagestan, and who was one of the ideologues of the struggle against the establishment of the Sharia in Dagestan,” the message said. The FSB is the new name for the KGB.

David Cliff/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images(BOSTON) — Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested a woman who allegedly assaulted a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat earlier this month.Rosiane Santos was detained by federal agents after video surfaced on Feb. 15 of her grabbing a man’s red cap and throwing it on the floor at a Mexican restaurant in Massachusetts.Santos, a citizen of Brazil who’s in the country illegally, was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Fugitive Operations Team on Monday and was being processed for deportation, immigration officials told ABC Boston affiliate WCVB on Tuesday.“She has since been released from ICE custody after being entered into removal proceedings in federal immigration courts and provided a Notice to Appear at a future date before an immigration judge,” an ICE spokesperson said in a statement.ICE didn’t immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment on matter.Bryton Turner, the Facebook user who posted the footage, said he was the man targeted by Santos.“I’m just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal,” Turner says in the video as Santos grabs his hat and pulls it over his eyes. “You see this? People like that, that’s the problem. That’s the problem with America these days.”In a second video, Santos can be seen speaking to two uniformed officers at the restaurant.“Went out with some friends trying to enjoy some dinner and drinks when this ignoramus randomly tried to hit my hat off and started yelling at me (assault + drunk and disorderly),” Turner wrote in the video’s caption. “I wasn’t going to press charges, but in front of four cops she did it again, so now she’s going to jail.”The Facebook post had racked up more than 2,000 reactions and comments as of early Wednesday.Turner did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Santos was arraigned last week and is expected back in court on March 20.Her immigration attorney, Katarina Kozakova, said she plans to address the charges against her client in criminal court, according to local new outlet Boston.com.Kozakova said Santos has a pending green card application and is married to a U.S. citizen.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Plans to remove stamp duty on the first £500,000 of a property with immediate effect will be a “bitter blow” for those who have just completed on a purchase, say residential law experts.While conveyancers have said the temporary move would come as a “welcome relief” to those who are in the process of purchasing, it would be a “bitter blow’” for hundreds who had already finalised proceedings since the start of lockdown in March.Sarah Ryan, head of conveyancing at law firm Simpson Millar, said it was most likely to affect new-build buyers and those who had been on the cusp of completion at the start of the pandemic.She went on to urge the government to make the savings retrospective to allow the costs to be recovered by “potentially hundreds of people”, many of whom may be facing money worries as a result of the crisis.Call for rethink“We of course welcome the plans announced today to freeze the stamp duty costs on any property up to the value of £500,000, which will not only encourage potential buyers to move on and up the proverbial ladder, but will also help to retain jobs in the real estate sector,” she said.“However, there is no denying that for some, in particular those individuals, couples and families who have managed to complete on the purchase of their home either during lockdown, or in the immediate aftermath, this will come as a bitter blow.“This is most likely to affect those who have bought a new-build property as many of those transactions could go ahead despite social distancing, as well as those who were all ready to finalise proceedings once the rules relaxed last month.“We would urge the government to make the scheme retrospective so that those individuals can also benefit from the cost savings.”Summer statement Sarah Ryan Simpson Millar Backdate stamp duty cut Mini-budget 2020 Stamp duty cut Rishi Sunak July 8, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Chief Justice Loretta Rush addresses top priorities for the Judiciary Wednesday at the State of Judiciary. Photo by LaMonte Richardon, TheStatehouseFile.com. TheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush told lawmakers Wednesday how problem-solving courts are addressing the underlying problems of drug addictions and mental illnesses that lead to many crimes.“These courts work because judges get out from behind the bench, convene community partners, and truly connect with those standing before them in desperate need of a new path,” Rush said as she addressed lawmakers in the Indiana House Chamber at her sixth State of the Judiciary Address.Rush laid out court initiatives aimed at addressing underlying problems of crime, jail overcrowding and access to the court system.As of 2020, 107 problem-solving courts have been established and Rush plans on setting up more to deal with problems faced by drug addicts, veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress syndrome and other issues. Rush gave a shout-out to some of the problem-solving court graduates and court judges during her address.Rush said that after co-chairing the National Judicial Opioid Task Force she has made three major discoveries. First, those with an opioid use disorder are 13 times more likely to be involved in the criminal justice system. Second, the justice system is the largest referral source to get someone treatment. Third, the justice system has to take opioid and substance abuse disorders as a chronic, treatable brain disease-not as a moral failure.“This epidemic in no small part, has caused our jail populations to increase. And it is one more, very pressing reason to examine and reform how we do business in our criminal justice system,” Rush said.Rush said that the number of people incarcerated has skyrocketed. She said she has no intention of releasing dangerous people into Indiana’s communities, but wants to see the number of people in jail decrease.“Some people need to be incarcerated,” she said. “More people just need help. A strong justice system must do both.”Rush did say that Indiana needs to do better representing the more vulnerable Hoosiers in the legal system. She asked that her request for increased legal aid funding be revisited. She mentioned visiting a small claims court where she witnessed 275 eviction cases where none of the defendants had legal representation.“That is not the model of a legal system where the poor, disadvantaged, and vulnerable are protected,” she said.Rush also shed light on the fact that last year, for the first time in history, five courts were led by women. She introduced the women as her “sister chiefs.”House Speaker-Elect Todd Huston, R-Fishers, shared his support for the topics Rush talked about during her address.“Chief Justice Rush set the right tone today during her address, and we look forward to working with her to ensure we are doing everything we can to support a more fair and efficient court system for all Hoosiers,” he said.Haley Pritchett is a reporter with TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.
