State Moratorium on Evictions Ends June 2

first_imgAn executive order suspending residential evictions in Florida for non-payment of rent expires Tuesday, June 2 at 12:01 a.m.Gov. DeSantis, who signed the moratorium on April 2, had extended the deadline from May 15.As for another extension, “I haven’t decided yet. Pretty soon, we’ve got a bunch of different things that are expiring,” Gov. DeSantis says.Local real estate attorney Phil Revah explains, “For residential tenants don’t be so sure that you can’t be evicted because non-payment of rent is only one ground among many grounds that a tenant can be evicted on.”A tenant could also be evicted for housing unauthorized residents or for illegal activity. Those types of evictions are not prevented under the governor’s order.“A lot of tenants are walking around who think they are immune and a lot of landlords are walking around who think they are powerless to do anything, well that’s not the case,” adds Revah. “My advice to them is to try and work out a resolution without jumping into a court action, without filing an eviction lawsuit for possession against their tenants.” However, certain steps need to be considered when a landlord is determined to evict a tenant.Revah explains, “Like Palm Beach County for instance, you can file the suit, you can serve the tenant, the clerk of the court is issuing summons against tenants, even residential tenants that fail to pay rent and you could even precede to a judgment of eviction.”Even if the state moratorium does end on June 2, some residents will still have more time.For landlords who have a federally backed mortgage, the Federal CARES Act stops the filing of those evictions until July 25.Click hereto determine protection from the moratorium on evictions.last_img read more

England coach Steve Robinson is contender for top award

first_img31 Oct 2017 England coach Steve Robinson is contender for top award Tags: Award, Steve Robinson Coach Steve Robinson, who steered the England Golf women’s team to become double European champions, has been nominated for a top award.Robinson, the highly-respected head PGA Professional at Sandburn Hall Golf Club near York, has been nominated for the ‘High Performance Coach of the Year’ award at the 2017 UK Coaching Awards.His nomination comes after a season of outstanding successes. First, he guided the England women’s team to their second successive European championship gold medal.Then he followed up by coaching the Yorkshire boys’ and women’s teams to victory in their respective English County Championships. Between them the two teams have now won 13 English County Championships while being coached by the Yorkshireman.Robinson, who has been the England women’s coach since 2008, has also notched up a European silver medal and five Home International wins during his time in charge.He credits England Golf with helping him to develop as a coach by encouraging him to go on a UK Sport Inspired programme, working with other Olympic sports. “As a coach I ask other people to get better and I felt perhaps I should look at myself and try to get better,” he remarked. The two European championship wins followed and now there’s the preparations for a possible hat trick.“It’s a massive ask but also a huge opportunity. There are not many teams in any sport that get to be European champions three years in a row. It’s going to be hard, everyone will be aiming for us, but we have got to try and totally embrace that challenge,” he said.Robinson, who was England Golf’s 2016 Coach of the Year, said of his latest nomination: “There’s a lot of good coaches out there and it’s nice to see golf get some recognition.“From a personal point of view I’m obviously delighted to have been nominated, but I’m also very pleased because there’s a lot of coaches in golf who don’t get any recognition.He faces stiff competition in the ‘High Performance Coach of the Year’ category.He is up against sailing coach Ben Rhodes, fencing expert Ziemek Wojciechowski, and the trio who helped mastermind Great Britain’s relay success at the Athletics World Championships in August – Stephen Maguire, Benke Blomkvist and Christian Malcolm.“We’re now up there along with the other top sports and there’s some pretty stiff opposition,” Robinson added. “We all love golf and it’s nice to see I’m a name in there alongside the guys who coached the world champion sprint relay team to victory.“I have no expectations, I’m just delighted I’ve made it into the final four and am representing England Golf, The PGA and the work all of us golf coaches do.”The UK Coaching Awards, which take place in London on November 30, honour coaching excellence from people and organisations who have demonstrated outstanding success over the past 12 months.Hosted by UK Coaching, the event raises the profile of coaching and the role it plays in transforming lives and inspiring an active nation.center_img For more information about the 2017 UK Coaching Awards or to view all nominations from the ten award categories click here.Caption: Steven Robinson with Gemma Clews, a member of the England team which became 2017 European champions (image copyright Stills Photography).last_img read more

Access queries over new health centre in Dunfanaghy

first_imgPlans to construct a €2.5 million health centre for Dunfanaghy has been found to be at variance with the official policy of Transport Infrastructure Ireland in regard to access onto the N56 in the townland of Kill.Local residents on this part of the N56 have said that in recent years say the road has been ‘a no go’ area for housing construction with a high level of planning rejections based on safety fears about additional access and an increase in traffic in this areaTII in correspondence to Donegal County Council on November 29th said the proposed development by itself, would adversely affect the operation and safety of the national road network. They put forward their national policy guidelines to substantiate their views including frontage onto developments on national roads.Today’s Tir Chonaill Tribune reports  that a number of applicants on the N56 in the vicinity of the proposed health centre have already had applications for private houses rejected and they are watching developments with much interest.Transport Infrastructure Ireland has said that the proposal, if approved, would create an adverse impact on the national road and associated junction and would, in the Authority’s opinion, be at variance with foregoing national policy.Meanwhile Donegal County Council’s planning office requested further information ahead a proposed decision on the application in two weeks time. They deferred consideration the application made on December 20th pending compliance with revised proposals.The compliances noted include: ‘The proposed internal access road to be omitted from the scheme’. A number of other changes are also proposed in relation to the relation to the staff car parking proposal to be omitted and located elsewhere on the site.The planning application was submitted on November 11th to include: Permission for demolition of existing agricultural sheds as part of the site preparation works to allow for the construction of a new multi-disclipinary health centre including gerneral practice, dental suite, mixed general primary care facilities and an ambulance service base with all associated works and services including the provision of a dedicated ‘on-site’ wastewater treatment system prior to dischage to the public sewer.In their response to the proposal, Council officials contacted the architects on December 20th saying: “The design of the proposed building to be amended so that it is set back within the site (building facing housing estate road) to be in line with the rear wall of the adjacent detached 2 storey house to the south westA return to be added to the building in the southern end of the site (where the staff car park is currently proposed) so that the revised building is generally ‘L’ shaped. The entire revised building to be further relocated within the site and at a minimum to double the current distance provided between the rear building line and the north eastern site boundary.All parking including staff parking to be located in the northern and north eastern part of the site.”The architects have responded to the Council saying that in terms of the building footprint they can offer little in terms of compromise as the HSE need this as a minimum level of accommodation.Back on October 16th Minster Joe McHugh was pictured on social media ‘signing’ the contract for the new primary health care centre. He said it was a major boost for the people of this region of Donegal with one-stop facility providing vital care and services through the clinic and alongside GP and dental care. Minister Mc Hugh paid tribute to the community for their part in getting the project to ‘where it now is’ and he had a particular mention for the support of Michael McClafferty who has been vocal exponent of the project.McClafferty is now the FG candidate in the area for the local elections in May.Attempts by the Tribune to get confirmation from the Health Service Executive that the contract had been signed for the €2.5 million facility failed to get a positive response. The site of the new building is close to the Oakgrove Estate on the edge of the town.The new centre is also expected to offer a range of HSE clinic services including public health nursing, physio, occupational therapy and other supports. It had been hoped that the new centre would be open in 2020.Access queries over new health centre in Dunfanaghy was last modified: March 7th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal County CouncilDunfanaghyhealth centrelast_img read more

Mayweather, McGregor trade verbal jabs as countdown begins

first_imgSEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief SEA Games: PH’s Alisson Perticheto tops ice skating short program Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor. AFP/GETTY IMAGES FILE PHOTOFloyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor traded verbal jabs on Tuesday as the circus-like countdown to their money-spinning superfight cranked into overdrive on the Las Vegas Strip.Thousands of fans, including a sizeable contingent of Irish supporters,  thronged the heart of the Nevada boxing capital to greet Mayweather and McGregor at their separate formal grand arrival ceremonies.ADVERTISEMENT McGregor and Mayweather passed each other after their separate introductions, with McGregor taunting the American with a shout of “Why didn’t you want to face off?” — triggering a melee between their two entourages.‘Intriguing fight’ A relaxed-looking Mayweather, meanwhile,  had earlier encouraged fans to bet on the fight finishing inside 12 rounds.“I talked to you before and said that this fight wouldn’t go the distance,” Mayweather said.“If you’re going to bet, bet it won’t go (the distance).”Mayweather did his best to play down his status as a heavy favorite, insisting that his two-year layoff from the ring had blunted his prowess.“That’s what makes this fight so intriguing, I’ve been out a few years, feel like I’ve lost a few steps,” Mayweather said.“So we’ll just have to wait and see.”Earlier Tuesday, Mayweather had taunted McGregor over his fitness, telling the US website FightHype that he believed his opponent would struggle to make the 154-pound limit for Saturday’s bout.“Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now,” Mayweather said. “I think he’s 164 so he’s still got 10 pounds to go.” Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather: Let him enjoy retirement PLAY LIST 00:44Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather: Let him enjoy retirement01:49Pacquiao to Mayweather: Want fans to stop asking for rematch?

Boxers often have the option of cancelling a fight or collecting a larger share of the purse if an opponent fails to make weight.Mayweather, who is expected to earn at least $100 million from Saturday’s contest, indicated he would take the money.“I get that extra money if you can’t make the weight,” Mayweather said. “Get those extra millions ready. UFC get those extra millions ready.”“If he don’t make the weight, we still going to fight but there’s going to be a heavy fine.”Mayweather has fought at 154 pounds before but is more used to fighting at welterweight (150 pounds). McGregor however has fought at 170 pounds in MMA.McGregor, 29, last week insisted he was in peak condition following a gruelling training camp that had taken him to “hell and back” and left him primed to face either a long or short fight.“There is no way in hell that I’m not ready to fight in the deepest of trenches in this contest,” McGregor said.“We are ready for both scenarios. I’m ready to go to war for 12 rounds and I’m ready to put him away early on.” Mayweather, the 40-year-old undefeated former welterweight boxing champion, has been lured out of retirement to face McGregor, a star of mixed martial arts’ Ultimate Fighting Championship.The two men meet in a 12-round contest under boxing rules on Saturday that is tipped to become the richest fight in history.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe cross-combat collision has appalled boxing purists, with many decrying the event as a farcical publicity stunt more in keeping with the choreographed traditions of WWE wrestling.Mayweather and McGregor, who clashed repeatedly during an expletive-laden world press tour to drum up interest for the fight last month, insist however that they are ready to deliver a battle for the ages.

And when we regain the ball, instead of turning round and playing it back, having that confidence to play forward and bring everyone up the pitch so we’re a lot more attacking.”The thing with the boys pressing a lot higher and with more intensity, hopefully I’ll have a little bit less work to do!” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
