He was moved by the tribute given there by Polish truckers, and met Mr Urban’s wife, son and family.“Although I did not know Lukasz, the story of his untimely departure shocked and disgusted me. As a fellow trucker, I decided to reach out to the trucking community and beyond to help in some small way. It could have been any one of us… I felt such empathy, as though he was my workmate or a driver at a company I had worked for. I just did it without thinking. It literally took me just 10 minutes to set the appeal up. I never thought for one second it would take off like it did.”Lukasz UrbanMr Otley thanked the people who had supported the campaign.

This year the endorsements for congress go to 6 Republicans including incumbents Marlin Stutzman, Todd Rokita, and Todd Young.Pete Hanebutt Political Education Specialist at Indiana Farm Bureau, explains during an interview process the pac is looking for candidates’ positions on a range of issues.“Issues for us at the statehouse level are always tax issues, always regulatory issues, some land use issues, and the ability for municipalities to reach out and regulate beyond their municipal borders is a challenge for us in the current climate. At the federal level, trade, taxes and regulation are always federal issues that Indiana Farm Bureau and American Farm Bureau are looking at.Hanebutt added the regulatory issues include, “the EPA and the Clean Water Act and how that is implemented and phrased. That was a big topic of discussion this past summer. Inheritance taxes are a big issue for us.”He says the Farm Bill was certainly a topic covered in interviews during this Farm Bill year, but it wasn’t a game changer for endorsement decisions.Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT endorsements don’t mean an automatic contribution from the political action committee, but this year the federal candidates have been allocated a donation.“At the federal level there is a maximum contribution of $5,000 and many of the candidates that we’re endorsing at the federal level will get that maximum contribution, but at the statehouse level there aren’t limits and they vary all across the board. Some candidates that might be in tight races where they legitimately need help to be reelected, and I’m thinking of incumbents now that have proven to be good to us in the past, they have a proven track record with us, those candidates might be worthy of several thousand dollars of contributions, but in most cases it’s less than $500 in a contribution.”[audio:|titles=ELECT 2012 endorsements]In the full HAT interview you’ll hear Hanebutt explain the process for determining candidate endorsements.

first_img Facebook Twitter Florida Governor Urged to Veto Anti-Ethanol Bill In the wake of a bill passed by the Florida Legislation to repeal a law calling for the use of 10% ethanol blends in the state, automotive technician and talk show host Bobby Likis had an op-ed in the Pensacola News Journal over the weekend calling on the governor to veto the bill.“What could be more devastating than ditching 35 years of progress? If the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is repealed, we will haplessly relinquish the fast track to the future while fellow states and countries worldwide embrace strategic biofuels production and use,” wrote Likis.Who among us foolishly says, “We don’t care about what ‘they’ are doing. We care about Florida?” Well, we’d better care. Because of “them,” more efficient, better-mpg engines, cleaner air, national security and lots of dollars — in Florida — are at stake.So whose agenda is behind repealing the RFS anyway? Can’t be those who have the economics of the state at heart or interest in lower emissions, lower gas prices and optimized engine performance. All these are attributes of the renewable fuel, ethanol.And yet, the Florida Legislature would put all of this in our rear view mirror.Governor Scott, now is the time for one good man to come to the aid of his state—by vetoing HB4001/SB320.Florida’s Renewable Fuel Standard Act, which requires that all gasoline sold in Florida contain 9-10 percent ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume has been in effect for five years. The legislature passed a bill to repeal the act last month but it has not yet been signed by the governor.Source: Facebook Twitter Home Energy Florida Governor Urged to Veto Anti-Ethanol Bill By Andy Eubank – May 13, 2013 SHARE SHARE Previous articleTwenty-two Point Jump in Indiana Corn Planting ProgressNext articleHAT Farmer Field Update: Too Wet, Too Cold, Keeps Planting Progress Slow Andy Eubanklast_img read more

first_img Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News In less than a week, the National Front (FN) has tried three times to intimidate the media. It reflects a clear hostility by the party towards any media that dares to cross it. May 2, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Far rightists seize journalist’s film and security official hits TV crew member News to go further FranceEurope – Central Asia June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) today deplored new aggression towards journalists by members of the far-right National Front (FN) party in Nice and during a May Day demonstration in Paris, saying it displayed a clear hostility to the media and a taste for violence instead of democracy.”In less than a week, the FN has tried three times to intimidate the media,” said RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard. “On 30 April, a journalist simply doing his job was insulted, surrounded and forced to hand over his film. On 1 May, a TV crew member was hit when he tried to defend a colleague being manhandled by FN security people. “Violence against journalists is not limited to the outbursts of FN leader Jean-Marie Le Pen,” Ménard said. “It reflects a clear hostility by the party towards any media that dares to cross it. The FN prefers a policy of beating and insulting people to democratic discussion.”RSF learns that Jean-Luc Thomas, permanent correspondent of the French TV stations I-télévision and Canal+ in Nice, was held for an hour and a half at FN headquarters in Nice on 30 April by officials who demanded that he hand over his film so they could see the footage he had shot earlier in the day. Thomas had been given permission the day before by the FN’s departmental press officer, Catherine Garcia, to film preparations for the Front’s May Day demonstration in Nice. After doing this and including an interview with Garcia, the journalist returned to the FN offices in the afternoon, as previously agreed. When he got there, Jean-Pierre Schenardi, the FN departmental secretary and also member of the Alpes-Maritimes department’s regional council, insulted him, told him he could not film any more and demanded to see what he had already shot. Though surrounded by a dozen FN members, Thomas refused and phoned his editor-in-chief, Jean-Michel Fauveau, to tell him what was happening. Schenardi then said Thomas would not be allowed to leave until he had handed over the film. Thomas again refused and was further insulted and prevented from leaving the premises by four officials blocking a doorway and by lowered metal shutters at the entrance.He eventually handed over the film cassette but was then stopped from going out to his car to recharge his camera so he could show the film. Thomas was only able to leave after calling the police. After showing the film, with the police present, Thomas filed a formal complaint. An FN member who witnessed the episode confirmed that Schenardi had refused to allow further filming, demanded to see what had been shot and had detained Thomas saying he had a right to see the film. The witness said this was justified because Canal+ had “smeared the FN.”During the FN’s May Day demonstration in Paris, Gabriel Gueguin, a sound technician for the French TV station TF1, was struck in the face by a member of the National Front’s DPS security service when he protested against the manhandling of a cameraman colleague. Gueguin has also filed a complaint. RSF notes that on 26 April, a Canal+ crew was roughed up by the DPS during a press conference at the Front’s national headquarters in the Paris suburb of Saint-Cloud. Journalist Jean-Paul Lepers was attacked and a colleague, Yacine Ben Jannette, expelled from the room. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story June 4, 2021 Find out more May 10, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on France News Receive email alertslast_img read more

For me, more than anything else, being a Christian means having an opportunity to know God personally. Everything else really is secondary. And, for most of my life, I found that this is the very thing that most people used to run from. But I’m sensing a change happening among some in our world. Now, I am finding that the thing many people long for most is an authentic experience of and relationship to spiritual realityI was talking with a group of students at a Christian college not so long ago, and they said that their churches taught that one distinctive of an evangelical church is that we say people can have a personal knowledge of God. But then, they all agreed, many churches quickly abandon that claim and start talking about programs, techniques, and performances rather than nurturing a personal relationship with our Creator.Of course, the trouble is that God just won’t fit into neat programs or techniques. As Job 11:7 –8 puts it, “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens; they are deeper than the grave. What can you know about him? Even if he were to pass before you, he could keep secret his passing.”Hear me out: We mortals need teaching sessions, discipleship practices, worship services, and mentoring programs. The Bible points that out, and the history of God’s people confirms it. However, we all know how we can engage in those things and still have no personal relationship with God. The reason is that relationships always involve growing understanding as well as making space to be with one another. The same is true of our “practicing the presence of God.”With that in mind, this weekend we return to the “burning bush” story in Exodus 3 (which we visited in our “Turning Points” series) to focus on this matter of knowing God personally. We will see that God takes the initiative to make himself known to us. And, we will also see how we are to respond to what he reveals about himself. That’s what happens in our passage today. It recounts how God made the momentous decision to step into human history and reveal himself to a flawed man named Moses. We need to learn what God reveals if we will have a relationship with him. He is whom he is! But then we will reflect on how one great man of God moves from having only an intellectual grasp of God to developing a personal walk with him.To HIS Glory.”Click here to download, “The Practice of the Presence of God.”Lake Avenue Church, 393 N.
