1. Bring Google Fiber to Augusta

For too long we have been held back by the monolpoly of Comcast and their sub-par performance and customer service. Unscheduled outages, low speed peak traffic hours, and overpriced internet are a thing of the past. Google Fiber is launching, and they are coming out fast.

We deserve internet speeds that can support our ever growing technological lives. Many people pay $70 to $80 for internet speeds that are promised to reach "up to 50 Mbps", but those speeds are far and few between and intermittent at best. Google Fiber is $100/month and can take care of all of your home networking needs. Your television streaming eliminates the need for cable or satellite services.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephone services eliminate the need for ATT, Comcast, and other telephone providers. With Google Fiber, all of those needs are not only satisfied, but the expectations are well exceded. With speeds of 1 Gbps (that's 1000 Mbps; more than 20x's faster than the fastest internet you can purchase today) for only $100, you can eliminate the need for those other bills.

It becomes infinitly easier to stream your television shows, surf the web, download music, upload pictures, and more. That 1 Gbps speed is not only the download speed, but it is the upload speed as well. Compare that to the 15 Mbps that you may be getting now, and it becomes clear that this is a technology that we need in the this rapidly expanding economy. Sign the petition, and lets get the internet speeds and freedom that we deserve.

2. The Miki Bill

In February of 2004 one of my dearest friends' daughter, Mikiala Martinez, was kidnapped from the streets of our hometown, Great Bend, Kansas. Mikiala was then taken to rural Barton County, where these 2 men admittedly beat, shot her and hid her body. Since this heinous crime against this mother of two, James Martinez (Mikis father) and I have been attempting to pass a new Kansas Law that will help us as the public to protect ourselves against these violent offenders.

We are very fortunate to have Representatives John Edmonds and Bob Bethel guiding us through the State House. We feel only military, law enforcement and legislators alike are bestowed with the authority, the ability and have undertaken the duty to protect. Other than this we must protect ourselves.

Public notification regarding the potential risk that accompanies these such violent offenders has been highly understated. Statistics prove the majority of these violent offenders violate parole, there for they violate another innocent being. Noone can protect themselves, their homes or their loved ones from potential danger if they are unaware of its presence.

We feel we have THE RIGHT TO KNOW when such violent offenders are released in our community and we hope you agree. There are several ways you can show your support: one short phone call, email or send postal mail to your state representatives, senators, governor, local law enforcement or even email to us, juliestiest@yahoo.com / exclusivejules@hotmail.com.

Or if you would like give James a call at 620-617-3421. We are grateful for any support any of you find the time to give.

God Bless Mikiala
