Under a policy developed by AFL NSW/ACT, junior players may only play for senior clubs within their listed pathway. As a former player of St Ives Junior Football Club, Jake Fitzgerald, 15, was eligible only to play for either Manly-Warringah or North Shore Bombers, not Macquarie University.
But Macquarie president Luke Gemmill believes it is unfair to restrict a junior footballer from choosing where he wants to play as a senior. “It’s unethical to say to a child you will play where you are told and not where you want to play”, says Gemmill.
Despite rallying the approval of every junior and senior club involved in the process, the administration at Sydney AFL would not approve Fitzgerald’s transfer. Gemmill said, “the only people who seemed to have a problem with allowing Jake to play with his friends was the AFL themselves”.
Vice President of the Macquarie University club David Marsh backed up his President’s comments saying, “It’s a matter of principles. We believe the Pathways Policy is prohibitive in its nature and is counter productive towards the goal of growing the game at a grass roots level in New South Wales”.
Peter Fitzgerald, father of Jake, thanked the club for its commitment to his son’s cause and added that during this ordeal his son had confessed to him, “If I can’t play with this team, I’m never playing football again”.
Asked “what next?”, coach of Macquarie’s Under 18s team, Tim Cameron, summed it up best by saying, “We can only hope that our actions have not fallen on deaf ears and that the Sydney AFL will sit down and review a policy that prevents a child from playing football with his friends”.
Burlington Junior School has made the decision to close the swimming pool and replace it with extra classrooms needed for pastoral care.
Swimming is an important part of the national curriculum and the closure of this pool will mean children effectively miss out on this convenient and enjoyable lesson, having to travel to another town to take their lessons, and the time restraints on this will ultimately mean less lessons if any.
Given the geographical location of Bridlington, learning to swim is vital for our children, and we believe this pool should not be closed under any circumstances.
WE, the players, parents, coaches, facility operators, members and other patrons of the USTA, demand a voice in the structure and organization of junior tennis in our particular sections and at the national level.
Given that nearly no junior player, parent or coach was provided any notice at all of the "approved" changes, nor allowed an opportunity to have a discussion or provide suggestions for the upcoming rule changes and given that such changes will affect our players in a drastic and severe way, (including the expenditure of money for no real purpose and the restriction of players to have any incentive to keep playing the sport) we demand that the 2014 rules be amended or at the very least, suspended until there has been further study, comment, review and input from the very people who participate and spend money to be involved with the USTA.
We believe that the 2014 rule changes will have a "chilling effect" on junior tennis, in that relegating players to participate in only local events and not giving those players who might develop later in the sport or who might "catch fire" by seeing and competing in higher event categories, is certain to cause hundreds, if not thousands of juniors to quit the sport.
The rule changes will be so discouraging for those players just below the top ranked players and the middle of the pack players, they will quit the sport. In addition and most importantly, the stated rationale for approving the changes in order for the US to again have another top professional player by only allowing the "elite players to compete against the elite players" will not have the intended outcome as can be seen from undertaking statistical studies of the rule changes.
The upcoming 2014 rules changes will only deter players from continuing in the sport we all love and the changes will only encourage our jr. players to join other sports where opportunities are fair and extensive. We, the participants in the USTA, believe that inclusiveness is the way to find the next great US player, not exclusiveness. That, reducing tournaments and reducing draw sizes across the board will not encourage participation, but will instead, discourage participation. We demand that common sense, not elitism, should rule the day.
Super Junior (슈퍼주니어), often referred to as SJ or SuJu (슈주), is a popular boy band from South Korea formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2005. They are current leaders of the hallyu wave, undeniably backing a large fan base all over the world.
The official fan club Everlasting Friends is limited specifically to Korea. The goal is to open an international fan base for all fans to enjoy. Super Junior has been enjoying much success in and outside Korea as proven by SMTOWN Paris and the third official concert SS3 that was hosted all over Asia. Now the upcoming SS4 is being hosted all over the globe, it only makes sense for the group to open an international official fan club for all their fans to enjoy and to lengthen their options within the industry.
On May 5th, 2010, Junior Alexander Manon, an 18 year old teenager, more commonly known as, TUBZ, was beaten to death by seven police officers from 31 Division, Toronto, Ontario. Junior's beating was the result of a short chase, that commenced after a "routine" stop in his car. The media has falsified this information by reporting his death as being due to cardiac arrest, despite the fact that, his body was found covered in his blood, he had bruised ribs, black and blue eyes and a broken neck. This information has also been omitted from news reports.
His ultimate cause of death was determined to be a broken neck. Unfortunately stories like this are not uncommon in certain parts of Toronto.

Attention Canadian Citizens:
to date, the officers involved in this young man's death, have still not been charged, no inquiry or investigation has been conducted and according to the initial medical and SIU autopsy reports, there is still no cause of death, contrary to police and EMS, which state that he died of a heart-attack.
Joe McElderry's success on the X Factor has highlighted one important thing - the X Factor auditions don't come to Newcastle!
Tony Horne In The Morning on Metro Radio spoke to Joe about this - and Joe is fully with us - he's joining the fight to bring the X Factor 2010 auditions to Newcastle - but we need your help too.
Quoting Joe: "There's lots of talented people in the North East. A lot of my friends are singers and are amazing so I think they should do auditions in Newcastle." Hear Joe talking to us here: http://filesocial.com/o1r59m
TV companies work well in advance, so we need to get this campaign up and running now so that we can lobby the producers in time!
You can listen to Tony Horne In The Morning, weekdays from 6am and Sundays from 10, on Metro Radio.
In the past, undue influence and duress has been exerted upon the Coach(es) of PHS Soccer in naming certain players as "Captains" to the PHS Soccer Team at the deprivation of more worthy student-athletes and to the detriment of the team.
This environment whereby cronyism and political patronage is promoted and where an autocratic method of naming "Captains" has, in the past, led to the collapse of team morale and reflects poorly not only upon the soccer coaches and team but rather, by a proxy representation, reflects poorly upon the athletic department and the school.
To remedy this problem and for the assistance to, insulation of, and benefit of the coaching staff; for the morale of the team; for the prestigious reputation of our beloved school the players, the team, the athletic department and the school:
We honor our American heritage and ideals of democracy by petitioning the following:
Since 2004 we have not entered a contest, which is a young version of the esc, and after the recent proof that we can do well in the contest, maybe we should bring the contest back, even if we do not compete in it, as we missed the win of last year for Georgia with the song bzz.
This year the UK is hosting the 2009 Cadet and Junior World Championships in Belfast. Currently, due to not enough individuals qualifying for the individual Junior event, Great Britain are only entering three weapons in the Junior Team events. As the team currently stands, Women's Foil, Women's Sabre and Men's Sabre will not have teams representing them in the team events (because, for each of those weapons only two individuals qualified - for a team you need a minimum of 3 fencers, but preferably 3 plus a reserve).
The 2009 Cadet and Junior World Championships in Belfast is a landmark event for fencing in the UK and we should take full advantage of it by fielding full teams. The team event also provides a valuable motivational and developmental opportunity for Junior fencers.
Please sign this petition now to show your support for sending full UK teams - to compete in the team event - for every weapon.
Since the retirement of Yeo Moor Infants Headteacher, North Somerset District Council have put in place their policies and protocols for amalgamating the two schools into one primary.
As yet, the Council have not demonstrated sufficiently why or how the amalgamation will be in the best interest of the current children or future children attending Yeo Moor Infant School and Yeo Moor Junior School.
Ever since the popularity of Super Junior in the Philippines, restless fans have been asking and talking about their coming to the Philippines.
Some, like us, are doubting that this is just a rumor. So, here we are asking a petition for everyone to sign so that they can come and visit the said country.
As part of the development of Redcar Town JFC, new facilities are being build at the Trunk Rd playing fields. This development includes fencing off the allotted are of the palying fields. However, there is a campaign to stop the fence being erected a the Trunk Road.
The club has contacted Neil Russell, a Redcar Council official, who has confirmed that this is true. Neil is slightly concerned as he has only received negative letters /emails from local residents regarding the erection of the fence.
To counter act this we need to send emails / Letters of support for the fencing, obviously letters from local residents surrounding the Trunk road would be ideal, however support from anyone who will use the site would help support the erection of the fence.
The obvious benefits of the Fence are -
- Promotes safety for children;
Stops irresponsible dog owners letting dogs foul in areas children will play;
Stop unsupervised dogs from harassing players and destroying equipment;
Stops youths on motor bikes riding across pitches when children are playing.
Stillness Juniors was once a sought after school where parents would move into the catchment area so that their children could attend.
This school used to have a waiting list as classes were too full. So why in the last 4 years have parents been removing their children and placing them into other local schools or more drastically, moving out of the area all together?
Almost all the classes are now not fully subscribed. The amount of Teachers that have come and subsequently left the Juniors in the last 4 years is unprecedented. This in turn is affecting the superbly run infants & nursery school. If like me and many others you are unhappy with the way the Juniors is being run and feel that Stillness Junior School is desperately in need of a change of management then please sign this petition.
Let's again make Stillness Juniors a school we want to send our kids to. When we have enough signatures a copy will be sent to Ofsted, Lewisham Education Authority, the Mayor, our Local MPs, and the board of Governors. This petition in no way reflects against the hard working teachers in the juniors.
(If you tick the anonymous box your signature will only show on the completed petition to be used, but will not be visible to others online.)

-Junior Raiders 3rd to 6th grade represent the community.
-Rest of NCKL junior football programs play on high school fields.
-These kids generally weight 100 pounds or less, so the statement that we are going to tear the fields isn't accurate.
-Outside organizations have used USD#320 facilities in the past for our children, e.g. Manhattan Basketball Association had basketball tournaments at all of our schools last year. These were ran and organized by coaches/parents of the school district.
-Additional money to the community through visiting teams and parents.
-The self-esteem that will last forever for these kids to play where the big boys play is tremedous.
-Let's the community come out and support our children.

The University of Texas at Austin at one time had an NCAA Division I Gymnastics Program, however due to loss of funding, the program was cut several years ago.
The need for an NCAA Division I team has arisen given the level of national talent within the Junior Olympic Gymnastics Community in Texas that is taken by out of state gymnastics programs such as 3 time NCAA National Champs, OU, and other programs ie: Penn State, Michigan, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
Texas Junior Olympic athletes rank among the top in the Nation, and as a university dedicated to both scholastic and athletic achievement, we need to keep these athletes in-state to compete for the great University of Texas and continue our reputation for both academic and atheletic excellence.

I have been involved in the development of a truly exciting board game all about the Eurovision Song Contest. To get it into production and on retail shelves around the world I really need your support.
I have launched a website about the boardgame to capture data from interested people to see if there is enough demand for the product. If there is, hoorah, it'll be in production as soon as possible, so if you think you would be interested in playing and or buying an official Eurovision boargame then visit www.eurovisiongame.co.uk and express your interest and then email all your friends and family and ask them to do the same but to only register if they really want to play or buy the game.
The EBU official marketing agency are supporting the game and will grant us licence to produce it we can demonstrate there is a demand.
Thanks for your support.

Alden Junior Football and Cheerleading has been operting for 35 years. This organization benfits the youth in our community by teaching and nuturing youth sports.
We are asking for assistance in making our present playing location in the Alden Town Park meet the OATKA League regulations.
The Santa Barbara Community Academy no longer has adequate space at its current campus, 215 East Ortega St. The School Board has decided it will no longer support and move forward with plans to expand the current campus. A option presented was to possible move a portion of the SBCA to the campus of La Cumbre Junior High. Having already experienced negative effects of a split campus this option is not ideal and is not supported.
Currently there are 18 empty classrooms at LaCumbre Junior High and existing land surrounding the school where the Academy's portables and other empty portables in the district could be moved. The campus has a auditorium and cafeteria in addition to much more adequate playground facilities.
The Ferris ISD offers a limited number of sports to its students. Many members of the community travel to Red Oak in order to compete in soccer. With the upcoming growth of the school district due to added housing developments and the student demand, we feel it wise to offer soccer as a school sport in Ferris.
We feel there is a lack of social space on the University of Bath campus and would like to see the provision of a Junior Common Room for undergraduates.
Upon the end of a female freshman basketball's season only a select few make it to the next level--Junior Varsity. However that is not the case for the male freshman basketball players. They have a whole team designated for them: the sophomore team. While the boys have the priveledge of a sophmore team, girls have no such thing. Lady basketball players who may be a little late blooming have no chance. They have no opportunity to fine-tune their skills before the varsity level. A lady sophmore team would in turn help the lady basketball program because it would give them more time to develop and expose the girls to the high school competition level. Opponents in our district would not be hard to find because Plano ISD school have sophmore teams for their boys as well as their girls. Equality among the genders is there ..shouldn't it be here too?

Part of the Liberty Junior High Visionary Committee wants to have looping at the new Junior High.
Looping is having the same teachers and fellow students for a two year period.
Let's give Ken Griffey, Jr. a second chance. Here's an excerpt from the Jim Caple article that sparked this petition:
"Griffey makes sense for the Mariners on the field. Edgar Martinez is probably retiring after the season. Mike Cameron could leave as well as a free agent. And the Mariners desperately need another power hitter in the lineup, preferably left-handed.
The area also is ready to welcome him back. Sure, most everyone here took pleasure in Griffey's early struggles in Cincinnati but we're over that. People don't resent Junior for leaving any longer, they just feel sorry about his injuries. And remember, unlike A-Rod, Griffey has never played here since his departure so he's never heard boos in Seattle.
All he has to do to be welcomed back is say, "I went to Cincinnati because I thought it would make me happier, but I wasn't. Now, I would like to return to my baseball home. Will you have me?" Seattle fans, who have watched Randy Johnson, Junior, A-Rod, Piniella and Boeing leave over the past couple years, would eat it up."
In 2001 I was raped and sexually assaulted by Junior, an alien resident. As an American, I truly hoped that the authority and organizations I have contacted would help me. Junior has on many occasions attempted to kill our fellow Americans and his goal is to exploit little girls, continue to rape other women, and to exploit the US' social services. I have gotten raped for protecting my fellow Americans and for defending the US government. Therefore, I'm requesting your signatures to help keep junior out of our society since his goal is to obtain his US citizenship so that he could expand his criminal acts. As Americans, we should remain indivisible and not be fearful of chasing rapists and possible killers out of our society. Your signatures will help make a difference. Your effort will help contribute to a safer society for all Americans. Thank you.
United and indivisible we shall stand!
Make your voice heard. Say "NO" to rapes and sexual assaults.

Larchwood Drive in Dallas, Texas, has had a long history of speeding vehicles at all times of the day and night. This is a residential street with many pedestrians. Children use this street as their main path to the neighborhood Elementary and Junior High Schools.
Larchwood residents have also been the victims of random gunfire and more recently gun shots fired into their homes. We believe the installation of road humps will deter traffic through our neighborhood and help return a feeling of security to our families.
Please take a moment to sign this petition via email. Pass it along to other residents in the neighborhood.
Thank you for supporting these improvements to our neighborhood.
Laton High School has had a tradition of glorifing Slavery for many past years. No one has spoken up, untill now. The Junior class has no choice but to participate in an re-acting of slavery. Seniors along with the other remaining classes bid for a ceratin slave ( student) and the highest bidder is proclaimed the "master" for the remainder of the day. Masters are allowed to do basicly as they wish with their slaves, as long as it dosen't violate the school rules. There is no way out, if any student is opposed they must " buy themselves out" and have to pay a certain price. Many slaves; died, hurt, starved, and were looked down as animals. If it was abolished, why do we continue to support it? Why are we saying it is okay? The school must look deeper into the situation than making money, because that is how it all came about. Let's give Laton Students a choice! Lets stop the glorification of Slavery!
