Mount Dora repeals ordinance,

clearing final hurdle for long-awaited EPIC movie theater

MOUNT DORA

The promised EPIC Theatres movie venue has taken a long time to become a reality.

But the multiplex is closer to happening.

EPIC Theatres picked up building permits last week to start on a project that was announced more than two years ago.

A 14-screen multiplex along U.S. Highway 441 between Target and Walmart.

The final hurdle was overcome the day before when City Council members approved repealing an arts ordinance that would have cost the theater company about $100,000.

The ordinance required property owners to pay a sliding fee that depended on the total cost of their commercial project that went toward arts that benefits the public.

For EPIC, the city required the theater company to pay 1 percent of the $10 million project for art, which would have amounted to $100,000.

The company’s attorney Derek Schroth argued the ordinance was an illegal tax

and the city’s attorney agreed that it wouldn’t hold up in court.

The 17-acre site will be EPIC’s second location in Lake County.

EPIC opened a 16-screen multiplex in Clermont in 2009.

EPIC Theatres President Frank DeMarsh said they estimate

the theater could be open in about 13 months.

“It’s great, but for us, it wasn’t the best thing to have this project take so long to start,”

DeMarsh said.

“but I’m very glad it’s getting started, and I know residents are as well.”

“were both truly innocent victims.”

Nicolas grew up in Parramore and mentored many kids in the neighborhood

Do Black Lives Really Matter To Black Leadership?

Coach Dave Daubenmire January 20, 2015

Although this person is a nut case that would put Donald Trump to shame

With some of his stupid words to Trumps stupid words!

It is true that we,

All American, Life matters!

And if we do not all unite to

dump the dead wood from congress,

both state and federal;

we will never save our children!

Let us not forget to ‘Dump the NRA’!

Some older words from Coach, hard as they are.

Someone needs to expose the frauds.

Blacks, like all Americans, are accountable

for the condition, they find themselves in, just like all Americans.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964

signed on Independence Day weekend,

outlawed racial discrimination in America.

Not my words however,

I have been wondering.

If Black lives matter to black lives,

take the responsibility of a parent and take the guns from our children

and the proven mentally hand capped.

And take the drugs and booze away from our children.

However, more important that any of the above!

(In November)

Please forget the politics and

‘Vote Out’

all of the known

(DO NOTHINGS)

in congress,

both your state and your country!

And let’s not forget your crooked Governors?

Governor of Michigan

and Governor of Florida

just to start with two in our country.

How many Bernie Babies are switching to republican?

CgrYLgEWYAA380j

Nearly 46,000 Pennsylvania Democrats have switched to Republicans since the beginning of the year.

I could have stated,

“How many Bernie Sanders Democratic are now switching to Republican?”

However, that would be an (Oxymoron)!

(A figure of speech by which a locution produces an incongruous, seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.”)

Because, as we know, Bernie Sanders and his Bernie Babies are all,

Independent, Socialist, Communist, Democrat wannabe’s.

Set up in the Democratic Party by the questionable top party leaders, whoever they are, heaven knows, why, only they know!

The only thing one can learn is that Obama is our president, Hillary is next in line and if you try to find information about the party, you must donate first.

Claiming “Robust” Bear Population, Florida Wildlife Commission Targets Another Hunt

bear-hunt-florida-2016-650x432

Another hunt coming: the bear just heard the news. (FWC)

Armed with updated data showing a “robust” and growing black-bear population, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is working to hold another bear hunt.

Commission Chairman Brian Yablonski on Wednesday directed staff and commissioners to prepare to discuss during a June meeting how a hunt could be managed.

A commission spokeswoman said later that a decision has not been made to hold a hunt.

“There is a process of how the hunt is set up, what the quota objectives are,” Yablonski said during a commission meeting at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place in Jupiter.

“There’s a ton of options out there.”

The Florida Administrative Code already includes an outline for an annual bear hunt to be held in late October, and Yablonski said

it’s up to the commission to set quota numbers.

The commission in October 2015 held its first bear hunt in more than two decades as a means to slow the increase of black bears in the state and to reduce dangerous interactions between bears and humans.

But the hunt was highly controversial, with opponents protesting in various parts of the state.

Jacki Lopez, the Center for Biological Diversity’s Florida director, said Wednesday opponents

have “been anticipating” the commission putting the quota issue on an upcoming agenda.

Conservation groups headed by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Animal Legal Defense Fund have petitioned the federal government to approve an endangered-species protection designation for Florida black bears.

The commission last year set a collective “harvest objective” of 320 bears that could be killed in four parts of the state opened for the hunt.

The areas were the eastern Panhandle region, which includes the northwestern Big Bend area to west of Apalachicola Bay; the South region, which includes Broward, Collier, Hendry, Lee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach counties, the North region, which goes from Jacksonville west to Hamilton and Suwannee counties, and the Central region, which includes the St. Johns River watershed to the Ocala National Forest.

The quota was based on an estimated 3,000-plus bears being in the state.

A limit of one-bear-per-hunter was set.

Hunting permits were sold at $100 to state residents and $300 for people from out-of-state.

A total of 3,778 permits were sold.

Money raised through the permits is supposed to be used for measures, such as bear-proof garbage containers, to reduce human-bear conflicts.

The 2015 hunt was projected to last up to a week.

Instead the hunt was called off after two days as the bear death count quickly reached 304.

Commission officials admitted to being caught off guard by the success of the hunters.

On March 24, the commission increased the estimate of the number of bears in the state to 4,350 adults, based on survey results taken before the 2015 hunt.

The commission also estimated about 2,000 bear cubs statewide, of which about half are expected to survive into adulthood.

The bear population had been as low as 300 to 500 statewide in the 1970s,

when bears were put on the state list of threatened species because of a mix of hunting and humans impacting their natural habitat.

Bears were removed from the list in 2012 when a new management plan was approved.

In 2015, lawmakers increased penalties for people who repeatedly are found feeding bears not in captivity.

This year, Florida lawmakers included $500,000 to reduce human-bear conflicts in the state’s new $82 billion budget.

Commission Executive Director Nick Wiley said Wednesday that the majority of the money must go to local governments with ordinances in place requiring residents and businesses to secure their trash.

We have been using Cascade for more years than ‘she’ wished to say.

I, a retired workaholic, have been using it since we hooked up some 22 years ago.

You are correct, you did not change dawn.

Cascade was changed, you took out Lemon/Clorox,

added lemon scent/parfum citron (perfume smell) and dawn.

Cascade now cleans like the Wal-Mart brand, only Wal-Mart is half the price.

Florida wildlife officials “Salivating over another hunt

bear_1460590662296_1593821_ver1.0

Was this S.J’s (Smoky Junior’s) Father?

And was he, a Ocala Neighbor of ours?

One of the innocent bears killed in the illegal hunt?

Florida wildlife officials (Scott’s Brainless Goons) “Salivating over another hunt!”

Florida wildlife officials, after reporting a rise in the bear population,

are looking into another bear hunt this year, according to News Service of Florida.

What rise?

And how fast can the bears that are left reproduce?

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Chairman Brian Yablonski

on Wednesday asked his staff to be ready in June

to discuss how such a hunt would be managed.

“There is a process of how the hunt is set up, what the quota objectives are,”

Yablonski said

during a commission meeting at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place in Jupiter.

“There’s a ton of options out there.”

What Quota?

How does one set a quota with no way of knowing the correct number

or how many bears are in each county?

FWC sets sights on another bear hunt

April 13, 2016

http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/florida/fwc-sets-sights-on-another-bear-hunt/131457447

On March 24, the commission increased the estimate of the number of bears

in the state to 4,350 adults,

based on survey results taken before the 2015 hunt.

What Survey?

Who took this survey and when was it takes?

The quota was based on an estimated 3,000-plus bears, being in the state.

How can anyone set a quota on “Killing our Black Bears”

From an estimate?

Who is responsible for such an estimate?

Did anyone care to “Estimate our neighbors in the Ocala Area?

What survey and who did this mysterious survey

http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/florida/fwc-sets-sights-on-another-bear-hunt/131457447

The commission last year set a collective

“harvest objective”

of 320 bears that could be killed in four parts of the state opened for the hunt.

320 bears by 5,000 hunters, sounds fair to me, how about you?

The areas were the eastern Panhandle region, which includes the northwestern Big Bend area to west of Apalachicola Bay;

the South region, which includes Broward, Collier, Hendry, Lee, Miami-Dade, Monroe,

and Palm Beach counties, the North region, which goes from Jacksonville west to Hamilton and Suwannee counties,

and the Central region, which includes the St. Johns River watershed to the Ocala National Forest.

Why the Ocala Area?

We in this area love our neighbor

and know to leave them alone so that they will

continue to be good neighbors.
