A true Apopka legend: Annie Belle Gilliam dies at 97

first_img Obituary from Loomis Funeral HomesAnnie Belle Driggers Gilliam was born 19 May 1921 in Kingstree, Williamsburg, SC, USA. She is the daughter of Dixie Benjamin Driggers and Mattie Ella Todd. She was proud of being “the baby” of eight siblings. When she was two years old, the family moved to Sorrento, Lake County, Florida, USA. Dad and a brother rented two box cars and rode with the mules and equipment by rail. Another brother drove the family car with the family members that moved down. They moved into a farmhouse in remote Sorrento.Annie Belle GilliamLater the family moved to a ‘station’ (fuel filling station and grocery) west of Apopka proper on two-lane State Road 441 between N Bradshaw Road and Cabel Avenue.She worked many jobs and saved money that she invested in houses and properties in the area, even before marrying. A woman investing alone was unusual for the era. She credits her father with modeling savings and investing in land that caused her to start working at The Station at age 12 and saving all of her money to make that initial wartime land purchase. Her first of over 200 recorded land transactions was on 21 October 1943, as a single woman.Upon his return from the war, she married Garrett Irving Gilliam. They lived in a few homes throughout the Town of Apopka City.They were in the citrus caretaking business, among various other side businesses, including investing in properties and renting then selling houses. She and Garrett empowered many grove workers into owning their own homes instead of renting. For one piece of property on Clarcona Road near Apopka Boulevard, Annie Belle and Garrett bought WWII military barracks from the Orlando base and paid the Starbirds $500 each to move them to the land. The Gilliams rented these spacious homes and land to their grove workers until the two sold them the house and land. The couple would accept $5 a week if the employee could work a full week if enough work was not available for a full schedule they did not collect on the mortgage. She felt that helping these people ‘pull themselves up by their bootstraps’ with no handouts was a proud achievement in her life.Her daughter Beverly Ann Gilliam D. Byrd and their son Garrett ‘Boo’, Jr. were well and properly educated and went on to be very successful in life and produced grandchildren and great-grandchildren.Besides her children, her proudest contribution to the community included being on the Board of Directors of the Apopka Historical Society at the Museum of Apopkans for fifty years. She was the curator of the artifacts of the museum up to her death. She preserved so very much of the formative and pioneering years of the greater Apopka area and Northwest Orange County area. She helped copywrite the book by Perrine Slim, “The Pennings of Perrine Slim” and other books written about the area.Annie Belle, from age 2 to 97, lived in central Florida, mainly Apopka. Then moved for her last few months to reside in Tennessee with her granddaughter Dixie D. Knight, who cared for her well until Annie Belle died peacefully at sunrise on the 4th of November 2018 just days short of 97 and 1/2 years.She was a diligent member of Magnolia Baptist Church in Apopka, FL, USA.Her cemetery plot is beside her husband with her parents in Woodlawn Memorial Park, Gotha, Orange County, Florida. I was sorry to learn of the lady’s passing. She loved Apopka, and our surrounding area dearly, with all of her heart, and she knew our town’s past history like the back of her hands!

Straight lines, clay walls and latticework. This is how the facade of the project is presented, built on a narrow and long plot, a rectangle of 10m x 40m, on which the construction takes a longitudinal shape. The key point in developing the house was the study of the Yucatan climatology, which requires the orientation of the windows towards the shade and the winds of the Yucatan coast. With these qualities in mind, the project was born, with a program composed of 3 modules: the service area, the social area, and on the top floor the private area with access to the rooftop; all interconnected through a vestibule.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!Top FloorSave this picture!© Tamara UribeThe house follows the coherent use of mainly one material: clay, which completely covers the external volumetry of the ground floor, in contrast with the upper floor. This displacement allows creating an access area characterized by a wall that extends from the exterior to the interior and following the same orthogonal line, a vestibule creating a sense of continuity between both spaces. The social area is a large space characterized by the presence of structural columns that allow a dialogue between the interior and the exterior environment with the kitchen as a point of connection, located between the service area and the living room.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Tamara UribeThe upper floor consists of a double height vestibule, which connects to the rooftop and to the three bedrooms, each framed by panoramic windows that extend from floor to ceiling facing the garden. The main bedroom is characterized by a spacious bathroom with large sliding windows that give the sensation of bathing outdoors. The clay latticework on the upper floor, the predominant feature of the project, is used as an element to block the heat of the sun rays and also to give privacy, creating transparencies and sets of lights that give life to the spaces. The project is presented as a house where the feeling of freedom predominates without the loss of privacy. The light naturally illuminates the spaces and plays with the colour palette of the earth and the sky, creating balance and harmony for those who inhabit it.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Tamara UribeProject gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily’s Sustainability Glossary : G-H-IArticlesBIG Designs 18-Story Pagoda for Tivoli in CopenhagenArchitecture News Share Marco Stecca Daguer ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/919133/first-house-ms-architettura Clipboard Year:  Mexicolast_img read more

Uzbekistan: exiled journalist’s brother convicted on trumped-up charge

first_img News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that a court in Ferghana has sentenced Aziz Yusupov, the brother of a journalist working abroad for Radio Ozodlik, the Uzbek Service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), to eight years in prison on a trumped-up charge of drug possession.The only evidence produced during the trial, held on 3 August, was the confession obtained by the defence lawyer assigned to Yusupov by the National Security Service (the Uzbek intelligence agency), who told him that his conviction was inevitable and that a guilty plea would help reduce his sentence.No material proof was submitted to the court to support the charge, which changed several times and became increasingly serious during the series of interrogations to which Yusupov was submitted prior to the trial.“Far from contenting themselves with complete control over the media, the Uzbek authorities keep on stepping up their persecution of the country’s few remaining independent journalists,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“Yusupov’s conviction is yet one more example of their ability to always find something worse to do. Uzbekistan is a living hell for journalists. The reports reaching us from there are more and more alarming. It is high time the international community faced up to this situation, which threatens not only Uzbekistan’s citizens but also regional stability.”Since the massacre of hundreds of peaceful demonstrators by the army in the eastern city of Andijan in 2005, almost all of the country’s independent journalists have been imprisoned, silenced or forced to flee abroad.Independent national media outlets have completely disappeared within Uzbekistan and only media outlets based abroad such as RFE/RL and the news agency Ferghana continue to provide reliable and critical coverage of domestic political developments.At least nine journalists are currently jailed in Uzbekistan. The two who have been held the longest are Muhammad Bekjanov and Yusuf Ruzimuradov. They have languished in prison since 1999, the year that the last opposition political parties were suppressed.Solidzhon Abdurakhmanov has been held since 2008, when he was given a ten-year term on a trumped-up drug trafficking charge, while Uznews.net, a website he worked for, was closed down in December 2014. The other detained journalists are Dilmurod Sayid, Bakhrom Ibragimov, Davron Kabilov, Ravshanbek Vafoev, Botyrbek Eshkuzyev and Gayrat Mikhliboyev. Conditions are terrible in Uzbekistan’s prisons: torture is widely used and most detainees are ill, many of them with tuberculosis. Uzbekistan is ranked 166th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Journal, Market Studies, News July 30, 2018 6,029 Views Sign up for DS News Daily A joint study by PropertyShark and RENTCafé on discretionary income took data from residents in the top 50 largest cities to determine the locales where the locals can live more lucratively. Taking median household income, home prices, and cost of living, the study found that in 44 out of the 50 cities surveyed, homeowners can save rather than spend each month.Surprisingly, the six the worst states for homeowners to live and save reside in the Southern and Midwestern states, rather than the typically hotter West coast market. Miami rests at the bottom of this list, putting a dent of $1,219 on average per month out of homeowner’s pockets. With a very low median household income of $4,241 compared to similar cities, and living costs exceeding $4,274, as well as adding housing costs of about $1,186 to the equation, monthly expenses take a toll on these Floridians.The runner-up for worst in affordability shifts to the chillier climate of Detroit, where the median household income of $3,204 doesn’t cover monthly essentials and housing costs and leaves no room for saving, leaving the average owner with a negative balance of $905 each month.Cleveland and Philadelphia have the average homeowner struggling to make a start in savings in 48th and 47th place. The median household income in Cleveland is $3,536, nearly equal to the monthly living costs of $3,647, leaving the average resident in an $842 debt if they don’t watch their pocketbooks carefully. The average debt for a homeowner in Philadelphia is $719 each month.The last two cities leaving owners in the red are Memphis, accruing the average homeowner $146 worth of debt a month, and New Orleans, which leaves homeowners just in sight of savings, with an average monthly debt of only $67.“Discretionary income was determined for each city by subtracting living and housing costs from the median household income, which was extracted from Census data, while living costs, such as food, healthcare, entertainment, and transportation were taken from U.S. Department of Labor. Rent data was provided by RENTCafé,” the report stated.
