Sports wagering licences would expire on June 30 of each year.Operators that secure a licence would be permitted to work with a third-party in order to run a sports betting platform in the state. Such partnerships would be covered by an associated gambling business licence, which would permit the leasing of sports betting equipment, systems, or other items necessary to offer sports wagering.All licensed sportsbook operators would be subject to a tax rate of 8.5% of their adjusted gross betting receipts, less winnings paid and payments to the federal government as federal excise tax.For the privilege of conducting sports betting within the premises of a licensed gambling operator, a sportsbook operator would pay the venue 5% of the net sportsbook income derived from the premises. In addition, sportsbook operators would need to pay an annual fee of $100 for each kiosk place with a gambling operator.The bill also sets out measures related to the responsible advertising of betting-related products and content across all media, the development and deployment of responsible gambling resources for consumers, as well as the mandatory monitoring and reporting of suspicious betting activity.Montana joins eastern neighbours North Dakota and South Dakota among the many states that are weighing up sports betting regulation.A bill in North Dakota remains under consideration, but South Dakota looks set to miss out on sports wagering this year after lawmakers voted down an amendment that would have allowed for regulated sports wagering in the state.last_img read more

Nolan wins The Apopka Voice Reader’s Poll

first_img April 6, 2018 at 9:26 pm Gene Barbara McLeod Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Eli, It is not a personal attack when I state that this is not NYC. Apopka is not NYC. That is a fact, not an opinion. Apopka is not Orlando either. Come on Eli….I know you like Commissioner Velazquez, and are her friend. It’s okay Eli. Tuesday will decide both candidates fates, so sit back and chill, it is almost over. Peace Eli. Alice Nolan, a candidate in the Apopka City Commission Seat #2 election, has won The Apopka Voice Reader’s Poll heading into the runoff this Tuesday, March 10th. Nolan received 281 votes (54.8%), compared to 231 (45.2%) for incumbent Commissioner Diane Velazquez. 512 readers participated in the unscientific poll that started Wednesday and concluded today at noon.Commissioner Diane VelazquezAlice NolanIn 2016, Nolan surprised the Apopka political world by receiving 2,159 votes (22.74%) in the Seat #3 election against then-incumbent Commissioner Sam Ruth and eventual winner and current Commissioner Doug Bankson. She didn’t make it into that runoff but did gain political momentum that propelled her into the 2018 elections.Velazquez was elected to the Apopka City Council (Seat #2) in March of 2014 when she beat incumbent Marilyn Ustler McQueen with 2,646 votes (55%) to McQueen’s 2,145 votes (45%).All along, Nolan and Velazquez have been neck-and-neck in both polls and in the general election results, and it appeared that a runoff between the two was imminent.Velazquez won The Apopka Voice Reader’s poll conducted in January by 3 votes (41.3% to 40.9%), while Nolan won the February poll by 17 votes (45.1%-44%). Then on election day, Nolan edged Velazquez again with 2,478 votes (39.7%), while Velazquez received 2,340 votes (37.49%).This is the first poll to show any separation between the two candidates.The Apopka Voice Reader’s Poll Results:Apopka City Commission Seat #2:Alice Nolan 281 votes (54.8%)Commissioner Diane Velazquez 231 votes (45.2%) April 7, 2018 at 6:07 pm Eli RiveraIf I recall you were a big supporter of Susan Kidd, and she had experience but she didn’t care about the citizens of Apopka. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply If any person, and I don’t care who they are, never ever were given a chance, no one would ever have a job or an elected political position…..and this is not New York City! Alice has shown leadership qualities that even I am in awe of. Vote for who you want, but don’t knock Alice! Congratulations Alice on winning this poll! Good luck and best wishes on the Election Day Runoff! Tell your sweet hubby hello for me……. Diane Valazquez is by far the best for city Council. She has years of experience as a New York police detective, along with the past four years where she has performed magnificently. Alice Nolan has no experience only a name. Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The danger in comments is that each commentator originates said thoughts based on experiences. Such is the nature of opinions. But I dare to ask on these particular comments on showing leadership qualities and strong fiscal integrity, inclusion, for all communities. Where do you get that information from? Not to tarnish any candidates name, but please tell me the facts and proof of said proven qualities. Yes people need the chance to serve Apopka. But what does Not New York City have to do with anything but personal attacks. Where does special interest come in. What are Mrs Velasquez special interest?Please do try to help me understand. Help Apopka understand the character of candidates. Have we taken our eyes off the sparrow?Velasquez has risen to the occasion, has proven life experiences, has taken the extraordinarily time to enhance her government knowledge in which that she can better serve all Apopka. Did I mention the Time, and commitment of the daily hours needed to give to Apopka.Well it’s my opinion/ comment..Gracias – Thank You Reply The Anatomy of Fear Reply Eli Rivera Jr. Reply April 8, 2018 at 11:05 pm Reply Michael Heaton Mama Miacenter_img On a number of occasions since November, I have asked on this site and other social media sites what the accomplishments and aspirations are for Diane Velazquez as Apopka City Commissioner and never saw a response, and we all know these candidates monitor all the social media sites like a hawk. I made a decision to vote for Alice Nolan, as I have read what her aspirations are and I like them! Eli – I agree with you, somewhat… It would be good to list the accomplishments of each candidate. Also, what are their positions relativity to the important issues of the day?Spending ControlSingle-Member DistrictsProtecting the existing Errol homeowners from the adverse impacts from the New Errol projectRed Light CamerasDuring the last four years Velazquez has helped increase Apopka’s annual budget from $60 Million to over $120 Million. And allowed our surplus to be reduced by nearly $40 Million.During the recent City Council Public Hearing on New Errol she did not ask a single question.Last year she was the swing vote that approved a new five-year Red Light Camera contract. Nolan has pledged to vote to have the cameras removed on January 1, 2019.

Moreover, Nolan will put “YOUTH/CITIZENS FIRST”, not SPECIAL INTERESTS, for sustainable economic growth.Remember, a person can not make a real difference by being SILENT on the sidelines and not exercising her or his RIGHT TO VOTE!

Review: Seasick Steve

first_img‘Got any spare change, Stevie?’ yells a Scot from the back of the sell-out crowd. ‘I do now, brother,’ replies Steve. ‘An’ it’s mostly yours’, he drawls as an afterthought. This is all that has changed as a result of Steve’s increasing popularity following his performance on Jools Holland’s ‘Hootenanny’, and more recently at Glastonbury. In all other respects he stays true to his roots as a hobo who spent years on the streets of Mississippi after leaving a broken home at the tender age of 13. Dressed in denim dungarees, an old cap and sporting a grizzly grey beard, Steve roars through his intensely personal brand of blues with a crazy tramp’s gusto. His songs are underpinned by his own grim experiences, which he tells with razor-sharp wit and honesty. One of the most striking aspects of the performance is the modest equipment Steve uses. He plays a one-stringed ‘Diddley Bo’, a Mississippi Drum Machine (a wooden box that he stamps in place of percussion) and most impressively, a battered three-stringed guitar. Most bands would refuse to step on stage with such sub-standard gear, but for Steve it is part of the magic of his set: from these instruments he draws a thumping, knee-slapping blues rhythm that resonates throughout the hall. Like his equipment, Steve’s voice belies his gnarled exterior. There is little of the gruffness his appearance would suggest, as he sings with richness and composure, whilst the atmosphere remains visceral. Throughout the set there are moments of tenderness in his tribute to his dead dog, which manages to avoid mawkishness due to its obvious sincerity, and ‘Fly By Night’, Steve’s “song for the ladies”. It is ‘The Dead Song’, though, that is most poignant. Again it is based on his memory of the past – this time, of his own near-death from a heart attack. The crowd sings the haunting refrain ‘There ain’t nobody coming back from the dead’ back to Steve, who conducts his choir, eyes twinkling with delight. This is the pinnacle of Steve’s union with his audience, but the Edinburgh crowd, amongst which there are many old fans, has stayed captivated throughout. No one can resist stamping to the driven blues beat, joining in with the memorable choruses, or eagerly anticipating his next story from the streets, but at the heart of it is the fact that Steve is genuine. He seems constantly thrilled to be on stage, yet he also seems bemused by this new-found fame. ‘Girls used to cross the road to avoid me, but now I’m on stage with a guitar they all want to talk’, he says coyly. There are no inflated rock egos and no pretensions of stardom and this is clearly refreshing for the crowd. Despite the obvious incongruity of a hobo from the Deep South in a room full of Scots, fundamentally it is only the stage that separates Steve from the audience. The set culminates in the fans’ favourite ‘Dog House Boogie’, which receives rapturous applause. An autobiography set to a droning blues riff that moves to a wailing chorus, it encapsulates the spirit of Seasick as energy, wit, candour and emotion combine to leave the audience howling for more. It is difficult to see how Steve can continue to generate fresh material without becoming predictable, whilst sticking as he must to his winning formula. For now though, Steve’s live act is a truly memorable performance that looks set to delight wider audiences as his reputation justly expands.last_img read more
