Well I must say, I'm not that familiar with apscheduler, but it looks to
me as if it's causing more issues and complexity than threading would,
at least in some cases.

I also don't think it exactly avoid threading, because apscheduler is
probably using its own internal threading to achieve the results.

If I wrote this, I'd be more likely to use multiple threads and some
global state to control them - much like how I've done in the river
system with variables like config.EXITING to signal program shutdown.
