City Commissioners left in the dark on Bronson’s exit

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter 2 COMMENTS TAGSApopka Fire DepartmentCity CommissionersLee Bronson Previous articleApopka Community Task Force listens for solutionsNext articleCruise Deals Expiring Soon Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR For the fourth time in two years a prominent member of Apopka’s leadership hired by former Mayor John Land has left their post in a way that seems surprising or not of their own volition.Becker: Thanked Chief Bronson for a stellar career.Apopka Police Chief Robert Manley suddenly retired in August of 2015, City Attorney Frank Kruppenbacher quit during a City Council meeting in July of 2014, City Administrator Richard Anderson transitioned into a “lobbyist” in September of 2014 and now a fire chief is pressured into “retiring” from his position.Commissioner Billie Dean: “No idea why he separated from our city.”Lee Bronson became the latest casualty when earlier this month City Administrator Glenn Irby pushed him to sign a separation agreement that would terminate his employment as Fire Chief of Apopka. Bronson’s annual salary was $129,705.16, his severance compensation is 20-weeks of income.Deputy Fire Chief Ray Thompson is currently running the department.Bronson served as Apopka’s Fire Chief since 2007. He originally was hired in 1974, and retired in 2005 before returning for his second stint.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer had no comment on Bronson’s departure, according to Robert Sargent, Public Information Officer for The City of Apopka. And for the past two weeks, The City of Apopka has been silent on the issue to the point of advising the media not to speak to Fire Department employees. Even City Commissioners have been left without answers.Commissioner Kyle Becker did not have any information on the Bronson departure, but did give him credit for the quality department he ran for nine years.Commissioner Diane Velazquez: “I wish him good health and happiness in his retirement.”“I would like to thank Chief Bronson for his many years of dedicated service to the city and citizens of Apopka,” he said. “We have one of the best departments in the nation, and probably some of the friendliest and most professional fire/rescue personnel you could find anywhere.  This has to be a direct reflection of Chief Bronson’s leadership, and will be a great legacy for anyone following in his place.”Apopka Commissioner Doug Bankson was asking questions and even visited the department earlier in the month, but still doesn’t know what caused Bronson’s separation.Bankson: “Like everyone else I’m really wanting to know more information.”“He’s been a wonderful public servant,” Bankson said. “I’m very disappointed to see him go, and, like everyone else, I’m really wanting to know more information.”Commissioner Bilile Dean was also left in the dark as to the reason Bronson is no longer the Fire Chief.“I have no idea as to why Chief Bronson separated from our city. Whatever the reason, in my opinion, Apopka is losing a great employee and I am saddened by his departure. I have known Chief Bronson for many years and appreciate his friendship and loyalty to our City. When concerns were raised about the lack of diversity within the fire department, Chief Bronson addressed those concerns and made a commitment to increase recruitment efforts in hiring more minorities. His efforts were successful! I thank and applaud Chief Bronson for his professionalism, and the exceptional leadership he has provided to our fire department and to the Citizens of Apopka.”Commissioner Diane Velazquez said she was not directly involved in the process and had no new information on the details of Bronson’s retirement, but did wish him well in his new life.“In my tenure as Commissioner, Chief Bronson was always respectful, professional and courteous with me. I want to thank him for his dedication, leadership and the many years of service to both the Apopka Fire Department and our city. I wish him good health and happiness in his retirement. Embarking on a new chapter in his life. Retirement will gift him with many new hours of the days ahead, allowing him to on take on new adventures.” Please enter your name here Gov.

May 26, 2016 at 11:30 pm Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here There is hope for the City of Apopka with the council’s leadership of Becker and Bankson. Becker and Bankson have so far presented themselves as independent and fair thinkers. Maybe, just maybe good will prevail and the Mayor will understand that this is the city of the people, not his city. Chief Bronson is a good man and didn’t deserve to go out like he did, nor did Manley. Michael Heaton Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

This is a small house for a family of five, a couple and three children. Land prices in the city are expensive and there is a system of blatant disparities depending on location and buildable area. Even the land they managed to acquire was a harsh reality, as only a small house (61 square meters of allowable gross floor area) could be built on, with a maximum of 12 square meters per person.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaHowever, in order to escape from the logic of such an urban economy, the family chose to live without a roof over half of their house, an unknown and bold choice(In Japan, the portion with a roof is counted as floor area). So in this house, nearly half of the house’s area, including the “living room,” is without a roof.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaAs a result, everyday life here is exposed to the sky, the only and overwhelming nature of the city. Inside the house, it rains, and the wind blows in. It snows and the bugs come. Every day of it is exposed to an unpredictable world, which must be hard to understand for those who think of their homes as assets and tools.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaBut the family enjoys this life with glee. They use the fittings of a yacht and sling sheets of sun (and sometimes rain protection) like sails, and they enjoy the freedom that only this house can provide. The children run around with umbrellas on heavy rainy days, build a pool on hot days, and curl up in sleeping bags under the night sky with their friends in the summer. Adults also gather to build fires, and are burning something and making smoke.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaThe couple worked in interior design and general contracting, so the first sketches of ideas were drawn by themselves. They also like to buy and make their own furnishings, so they use the small hardware and lighting they have collected, and they construct and partially paint rooms and install shades to match their children’s growing needs on a daily basis. They will continue to live in the house while building the parts of their lives that they need at any given time.Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NakayamaThe exterior of the house is simple, with siding and residential sashes like those found in other houses in the area. The plan is small and simple. However, with the roof cut off, daily life is fun and dense.

Justice now for Dontre Hamilton

first_imgPhoto: Joe BruskyMembers of the Coalition for Justice and its supporters packed a Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission meeting Nov. 6 to demand justice for Dontre Hamilton, who was shot 14 times at Red Arrow Park in Milwaukee by Christopher Manney, a Milwaukee police officer, on April 30.When officials of the so-called “police union” attempted to speak at the commission meeting to demand Police Chief Edward Flynn reinstate Manney, they were shouted down by community activists. Manney was fired in October due to mass struggle by the Coalition for Justice and other community activists and supporters, but he is yet to be charged with any crime for killing Dontre Hamilton.The coalition, which is led by the Hamilton family, is asking supporters to contact Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm and demand he charge Manney with murder.

‘Marx’s view of the working class includes all struggles’

first_imgLarry Holmes at Marx anniversary meeting.Part 1 of a May 6 talk by Larry Holmes, first secretary of Workers World Party, at the meeting “[email protected]: Class Struggle in the Age of Trump” in New York.Arguably, socialism has never been more popular. I’m not saying it’s not debatable, but that’s what some people think. And capitalism has never been more unpopular. This is good news for all of us who dream about and work toward socialist revolution.But in order to realize the potential of this, we must confront some ideological problems. They’re not problems you can blame on this or that leader or party, or even this or that event. They’re more general than that.Karl Marx didn’t call for reform — he called for revolution. He believed capitalism could not be reformed. He believed capitalism was not only inherently oppressive, based on the exploitation of labor, that it pauperized the workers and even more the oppressed, but that the system was inherently unstable. It might go through periods when it seemed to be stable, especially for ordinary workers. Sooner or later that would come to an end, and instability would come back with a vengeance.So what happened? I think we ought to sharpen our view of the development of revolutionary Marxism over the last three-quarters of a century, not only in this country but around the world. It’s been problematic. It’s reached some barriers, some walls, which it has not been able to overcome yet. But that’s temporary. With our help, and that of millions of other revolutionaries, we’ll get over those barriers.After U.S. imperialism gained world dominance when it came out victorious in the second imperialist world war, it ran all sorts of global networks, institutions, projects and ways of thinking that are under attack now because of the crisis of capitalism. In the working-class movement, in a general way, there was a reassessment of the situation.The general thinking of the working-class movement was that now U.S. imperialism is so dominant that capitalism is probably going to be around indefinitely. And probably we’d be dealing with a system that appeared to be stable. And so what we were fighting for would be affected by that.It’s not that everybody came together and decided this. It was more abstract and uneven than that. But it’s nonetheless true, with some exceptions.What happened was that the struggle for revolution abated, and the struggle for reforms became an end in itself. From a revolutionary point of view, the struggle for reforms is just a strategy toward the struggle for revolution. We’re not against the struggle for reforms, for immediate demands — we’re all for that. But that became predominant.Then eventually, as we could have told anybody, it became clear that capitalism had sunk into a deeper crisis. Globalization, technology, austerity — some call it neoliberalism. That’s actually just another word for saying a violent stage of unstable capitalism. And all the attacks that came with it: union busting, more racism, more sexism, more oppression.When that happened, because of the orientation of a large section of the working class, including forces that considered themselves socialist and communist, they didn’t know what to do. Their work and their perspective was based to a large degree on the stability of capitalism. But all of a sudden they didn’t have that anymore.We have to talk about this a lot more, but not just talk about it as if we’re polemicizing with somebody. We have to try to do something to change this perspective.Our struggle — and it’s been our struggle for a long time — is to try to reset the working-class movement. However long it takes, and whatever needs to be done to accomplish this, we have to work hard as revolutionaries to reset what the main objective is.Fighting for immediate demands is great. All of the tremendous struggles that have taken place — you can’t take anything away from them. They’ve been valiant; they’ve been brave. But we’ve got to put revolution back into the equation, because that’s what is necessary.Our program cannot be limited to immediate economic demands. It has to be more revolutionary. It has to address political demands, like stopping imperialist war. Like supporting the struggle of the oppressed. Like supporting Black Lives Matter — that’s a working-class issue. That’s not some marginal issue. Supporting the struggle for women’s liberation, the struggle for the liberation of LGBTQ people, the struggle of immigrants. These are not marginal struggles on the side. They are at the center of the working class.There are some in our movement who say that these issues are diversions, that they’re not really working-class issues. And even worse. Some say that that they’re the reason Trump got elected. We must argue with them. We cannot tolerate this kind of thinking, because it’s wrong and it’s disuniting. These are working-class struggles.Who is the working class?Marx’s view of the working class was for everyone to come in — all the issues, all the struggles. Not for some to be pushed to the side: This one is important, that one’s not. That’s not a revolutionary view, and it’s not a Marxist view.Marx’s view was that the working class got bigger, not smaller. Not only because of the legions of oppressed people who joined it. You cannot say that Marxism is Eurocentric — today the working class is mostly the oppressed of the world, not only in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, but right here and in other imperialist centers, if you look at the demographics. Why do you think so many racists and the bourgeoisie are flipping out? Because the oppressed are taking over.Capitalist crisis forces other social elements into the working class, not the other way around. People who thought they were going to be petty bourgeois or even bourgeois are forced into the working class.A lot of the educated young people whom we run into, not only in our daily lives but in the political movement, might have had some big ideas about what they were going to do with their education. Now they can’t pay their loans, and they’re forced to work in the gig economy, to take all sorts of precarious jobs with no security, jobs that don’t last. That’s why people have to constantly be leaving and getting new apartments. And these are people with degrees — some of them with two or three degrees.These are our comrades, or at least potentially our comrades, and very much a part of the working class. And we need to make something clear. Because I hear it anytime some of the young people who fit this description get together and they’re becoming radicalized. They look at each other sometimes and they say, “We’ve got to get to the workers.”Yes, you need to get to other sectors of the working class who are more oppressed because they are in need of your solidarity. But you are workers. You are not some middle-class abstraction that no one has defined. So stop looking at each other and wondering what you are. You’re the working class, and you know what? The revolution needs you. It needs what you know. And it’s a big plus on the side of the working class that we have you.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fort Worth’s art scene gets a little bigger with the opening of the Art Room

first_imgReddIt Twitter Jacob Smith Jacob Smith printFort Worth’s newest art gallery, the Art Room, opened its doors Saturday with the first exhibition titled “One.”The exhibition features work from 15 various local and international artists.The night was a huge success for the gallery’s co-curators Nathan Madrid and Katie Murray.“We honestly hope that every exhibition is as big of a turn out as this one,” said Murray.The gallery consists of a large room with adjacent white and cement brick walls.Thumping rhythmic beats from the house D.J. added to the atmosphere as crowds walked through inspecting images and enjoying conversation.The event was catered by Chile Pepper Grill and Denton’s Audacity Brew House.Though there was no defined theme for the exhibition, the pieces were meant to inspire a sense of realism. Submissions from Madrid, for example, showcased intense portraits of people across several ethnicities.One is the first of several exhibitions held in the Art Room located near Montgomery Plaza on West 7th street.Alison Jardine, a British artist currently working in Dallas, says she was thrilled to be a part of the project’s beginnings.“Given that it fits the theme, I do hope to work together again in the future,” said Jardine.Local artist and event spectator Maria Cervantez said she was excited for the opening of a small gallery in Fort Worth.“It’s great for local artists to have options closer to home to display their work,” said Cervantez.The gallery hours are by appointment only.

Open letter to Jacques Chirac and other French politicians alerting them to Azerbaijan’s press freedom violations before they meet President Aliev

France cannot receive the president of a country where impunity so often prevails without raising these issues,” the letter concluded.

Husseynov, the letter said, “was badly beaten and stabbed by four assailants outside his home in Baku on 25 December and has been in hospital since then with head and stomach injuries. Although the attack took place in broad daylight and the assailants did not bother to cover their faces, the police claim there were no witnesses.”The attack on Husseynov was the third of its kind in 2006, the letter said, and was typical of the way relations between Azerbaijan’s political leaders and its media representatives often lead to violence against the latter. Two journalists, Bahaddin Khaziyev and Fikret Huseynli, were assaulted in 2006, while Elmar Husseynov, the editor of the magazine Monitor, was murdered in March 2005. Reporters Without Borders went to Azerbaijan and met President Aliev after the Elmar Husseynov murder. Although promises were made, the case has still not been solved and recent developments have raised doubts about the desire of the Azerbaijani authorities to solve this murder.The letter also described the recent harassment of privately-owned news media such as the opposition daily Azadlig, the news agency Turan, the newspaper Bizzim Yol and ANS TV. Reporters Without Borders urged France’s leaders to raise these press freedom violations during their meetings with Aliev. “France cannot receive the president of a country where impunity so often prevails without raising these issues,” the letter concluded.* The letter was also sent to Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, the presidents of the national assembly and senate, Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and Lille Mayor Martine Aubry.
