Both survived a general election that year against incumbent opponents, and both won their runoffs to become first-time commissioners.Then on Tuesday, Bankson and Becker became the first incumbent commissioners in 10 years to defend their seats against challengers.Bankson claimed 4,393 votes (60%), outdistancing challenger Leroy Bell, who received 2,917 votes (40%). It was a larger margin than Bankson’s runoff victory over then-incumbent Sam Ruth in 2016, when he received 2,707 votes (55.5%).Commissioners Kyle Becker (left) and Doug Bankson (right) will be returning to the Apopka City Commission after decisive victories on Tuesday night.“With all that is going on in the nation right now I am truly grateful for those who came out in support and cast your vote, and I will do my best to serve the citizens of Apopka,” Bankson said. “I am so thankful to our entire team of faithful volunteers who did such an amazing job, and all those who gave so generously to help us across the finish line. I am extremely grateful for my family, our congregation, and for all those who have prayed for us. Special thanks to my campaign manager and son for coordinating everything so well. I want to thank my wonderful wife who is simply amazing and the real wind beneath my wings, and of course I want to thank the Lord who is my strength and put it in my heart to serve. I ask for His wisdom most of all. Now it’s time that we all come together and support each other through the challenges ahead, and I know we will show everyone how amazing the people of Apopka really are. Let us have faith and not fear, unity and not division, and may we protect and value every life. I thank God that I live in Apopka, and I am truly optimistic that we will pull together and pull through whatever is ahead. The election is over and it’s time to become one voice of freedom and brotherly love. Apopka, let’s keep moving forward together!”Apopka City Commissioner Kyle BeckerBecker experienced a slightly better outcome than Bankson, 4,472 votes (62%), to challenger Lorena Potter’s 2,772 votes (38%). He also outperformed his 2016 showing, when he defeated 40-year incumbent Bill Arrowsmith with 2,689 votes (55%).“First, I would like to thank Lorena Potter and her supporters for a competitive and civil campaign,” said Becker. “I know how much hard work and long hours go into running a campaign like this, and she should be commended for it. I am so grateful to my fellow Apopka voters, and the confidence they have in me to be their representative voice on our city’s Council. I have taken great pride in being a prepared and practical leader and feel so privileged to serve a second term as Commissioner of Seat 4. There are many family, friends, and campaign supporters to thank for helping me on this path, but the most important are those that cast a vote, and use that vote as their voice for what they want Apopka to be. I will continue to fight for their best interests, and all of Apopka.”Potter posted on her Facebook page, “Congratulations to Kyle Becker on his retention of Apopka City Council Seat 4. Many thanks to all of the friends, family and volunteers who supported me throughout my campaign. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed getting out in the community and meeting so many people. Although I will not be a Commissioner, I still plan to stay actively engaged in community affairs.” Potter reached out to Becker and congratulated him on the phone, offering her support and sharing that she would be happy to be a resource to him and help anyway she can. She said there has never been any animosity between them, and they are “all good”.So what’s my point, you may ask. Two candidates start their careers the same year, and then win two straight elections. How is that so unusual?Well, here’s two more logs to throw onto the Bankson-Becker fire…In 2018, the city council needed a vice mayor to succeed Billie Dean, who retired after 24 years in office. According to the Apopka Charter, the commissioner with the most seniority becomes the vice mayor.But in this case, Bankson and Becker were tied with two years apiece, so it was decided by a coin flip by newly-minted Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson. Becker called “tails”, it was heads.Bankson wins by a coin toss.The flip of a coin is one thing, but what about comparing their track records in their last three elections?I’m glad you asked…Bankson received 2,707 votes in the 2016 general election, 3,900 votes in the 2016 runoff, and 4,393 in the 2020 general election for a total of 11,000 votes.Becker received 2,689 votes in the 2016 general election, 3,639 votes in the 2016 runoff, and 4,472 votes in the 2020 general election for a total of 10,800 votes.A razor-thin margin of 200 votes from 21,800 votes cast!The next municipal elections in Apopka are in 2022 when Seats #1 and #2 on the city commission will be up for grabs. Commissioners Alexander H. Smith (Seat #1), and Alice Nolan (Seat #2) are the incumbents. Mayor Bryan Nelson will also be up for re-election in 2022.Bankson and Becker will be off the ballot in the next election cycle… or at least they will not be defending Seats #3 and #4. But do not be shocked to see these two commissioners square off one day with more than a coin toss at stake.

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR UL Hospitals Group chief executive Colette CowanPARENTS in Limerick are not having their children vaccinated against the flu in the numbers that were expected.According to local family doctors, the take-up of the free, painless vaccine – which is administered by nasal spray – has been very disappointing.Meanwhile, it has emerged that just over half of healthcare workers in the University of Limerick Hospitals Group have availed of the flu vaccine while six in ten community healthcare workers have been vaccinated.Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan confirmed that 51 per cent of the healthcare workers in its six hospitals have been vaccinated.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This is the highest flu vaccine uptake ever recorded by the hospitals. The UL Hospitals Group is actively working towards the national target of 75 per cent vaccination for healthcare workers,” Prof Cowan added.The numbers indicate that there has been a 120 per cent increase on the same five week vaccination period in 2019.In answer to a query from the Limerick Post, the HSE said it does not have data on the uptake of the new children’s vaccine but said that 600,000 doses of nasal flu vaccine have been procured so far this year.“All sites that placed an order for the vaccine received their first delivery by the October 9. To date, more than 75 per cent of the vaccine has been distributed to GPs and pharmacies for administration to children between two and 12 years of age,” a HSE spokesman explained.“As of November 18, at least 122,000 doses of the children’s vaccine have been given.“With less than three weeks left of the school term and understanding the challenging circumstances schools find themselves with Covid protocols and limited space for vaccinations, it is not possible to provide the flu vaccine in schools this year,” the spokesman added.At a meeting of the Health Forum West last week, Chief Officer for HSE Mid West Community Healthcare Maria Bridgeman, said that 60 per cent of heath care workers in the region have been vaccinated.“Clinics are on-going across the area and the figure of 60 per cent uptake is expected to increase in the weeks ahead,” she said.

However, business fixed investment and net export remained soft. More importantly, inflation is still running below the Committee’s objective of 2 percent, reflecting earlier drops in energy prices and falling prices of non-energy imports. Looking ahead, the Committee still expects a moderate pace of GDP growth, with continuing job gains and lower energy prices supporting household spending.The Committee noted that it will assess both realized and expected progress in determining how long to maintain the near zero target range toward its maximum employment and 2 percent inflation objectives. The assessment will consider labor market conditions, inflation indicators, and financial and international developments.”The Committee anticipates that it will be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate when it has seen some further improvement in the labor market and is reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its 2 percent objective over the medium term,” the FOMC said.The FOMC also mentioned that it is maintaining its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities in agency mortgage-backed securities and of rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction. They believe this policy should help maintain accommodative financial condition by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels.Janet Yellen, FOMC chair revealed at a mid-July House Financial Services Committee hearing that rates would be raised upon improving economic conditions at no particular time.“At our meeting that ended today, the Committee concluded that these conditions have not yet been achieved. It remains the case that the Committee will determine the timing of the initial increase in the federal funds rate on a meeting-by-meeting basis, depending on its assessment of incoming economic information and its implications for the economic outlook.”However, Yellen did allude to the rate increase possibly occurring before the end of the year in a Senate Banking Committee hearing also held in mid-July .”If the economy evolves as we expect, economic conditions likely would make it appropriate at some point this year to raise the federal funds rate target, thereby beginning to normalize the stance of monetary policy,” Yellen said. “Indeed, most participants in June projected that an increase in the federal funds target range would likely become appropriate before year-end. But let me emphasize again that these are projections based on the anticipated path of the economy, not statements of intent to raise the rates at any particular time.”The committee has three more meetings this year in September, October, and December to still raise rates.

The lipip content and composition of various tissues from three species of nototheniid fish from McMurdo Sound, Antarctic have been examined in relation to their habitat and buoyancy. The pelagic midwater Dissostichus mawsoni is neutrally buoyant. It is rich in lipid which is located subcutaneously, as adipose tissue associated intimately with white muscle, and as lipid droplets within the cells of various tissues. White muscle, red muscle and liver are particularly lipid-rich, although the liver is not positively buoyant. The amount of lipid stored in the white muscle increases towards the centre of buoyancy of the fish. These deposits are documented at the anatomical, histological and ultrastructural levels. Tissues of Pagothenia borchgrevinki contain less lipid than D. mawsoni, but liver, red muscle and white muscle are still very rich in lipid. This species is cryopelagic, that is it spends most of the time in the water column just beneath the surface ice layer. It is not neutrally buoyant, but has a low weight in seawater. The tissues of the benthic Trematomus bernacchii contain only normal levels of lipid. The lipid class compositions of all three species are dominated by triacylglycerol, particularly when lipid contents are high. Serum lipids are an exception in containing high levels of the transport lipid sterol ester. The reason why Antarctic fish use triacylglycerols for buoyancy rather than was esters (as used by many myctophids) or squalene (as used by some sharks) is unclear.
