Business plans for an indoor skate park are in the process of being made.
We need your signature to help approve planning permission and get this idea off the ground. The skate park will be a friendly, well supervised environment for yourselves and your children/family with activities throughout the year! (especially winter and rainy days).
Help make this happen!
Ventnor Winter Gardens is under threat of imminent closure. The Winter Gardens, with its stunning coastal views and scenic location, has been a valuable and iconic Ventnor landmark for over 70 years.
As well as being an established entertainments venue and attraction for visitors and Islanders alike, the Winter Gardens provides a venue for numerous local groups whose activities are now also under threat.
If action is not taken now, this valuable asset to Ventnor and the Isle of Wight could be lost forever.
The Lachine Canal in Montreal and its shorelines have long been used for summer activities such as biking, inline skating and pleasure boating but has never been opened for cross-country skiing and ice skating during the long winter months.
Our goal is to petition Parks Canada and the City of Montreal to open and manage this historic landmark during the winter months so its citizens and many visitors can take advantage of its natural beauty proximity to the city core, much like the lucky citizens of Ottawa with the world famous Rideau Canal.
Oxfordshire County Council has a policy of NOT gritting cycle paths in icy weather. Yet hundreds of Cherwell students cycle along the Marston Ferry cycle track in the ice, and thousands commute along Barracks Lane, the track from Marston to the University Science area, etc. Cambridge and Westminster grit cycle paths: why not Oxford?
Do add in the comments, tracks outside Oxford (e.g. Eynsham A40) that you think should be included, along with other comments.
I was using the TTC on Sunday December 13th to get home. In the evenings (especially when it is this late, when I have bags to carry from work and when roads are slippery), I like to request the bus to pull into a quick stop between bus stops. Not only do I feel safer with my home in sight; I have shaved several minutes of walking. Usually, bus drivers are more than happy to do this, especially during the winter evenings regardless of my gender.
This time, I was abruptly reminded that this request stop was for "women only" and then the bus carried on driving (without stopping and only having one other passenger).
This is only the third time this has happened (the the driver rejected my request); however, I feel that incident should never have happened at all. I am writing to suggest that the "evening stop request" be made availble to all men, women and children travelling in the evening times and that every passenger's safety (especially in the winter time) be considered. The Toronto Transit Corporation has to believe that passengers will not abuse this opportunity; at the same time, should also believe that their employees can us their descretion whether to allow the stop or not (NOT based on gender). Being that Toronto has taken huge strides to become more inclusive and diverse in culture, ethnicity, abilities and sexuality/gender, this should be reflected in the transit system Toronto provides.
Not all women are more vulnerable to danger than men. Female riders do not pay extra fare to have their safety be protected (as people's safety should be protected for everyone). There are many individuals in Toronto who are transgendered as well. Being judged by the clothes we wear, the way we act and who we are should not be a factor in our safety when "Riding the Rocket".
With Toronto winning its bid for World Pride in 2014; I do not concede that we should take this matter lightly. For the days, weeks and months leading up to the event, Toronto will be home to many visitors from across the globe. The last thing I believe should ever happen would be for a man to be in a dire situation that could have been avoided by the opportunity to "request an evening stop".

To the Peabody Community:
Official notification of the Holiday Closing was sent out via e-mail on Dec. 8, 2008. A petition was drawn up two days later on Dec. 10 to express concerns about the closing and the lack of preparation and time we had to deal with this policy.
Signatures were collected, but in order to reach the entire Peabody community as soon as possible, we requested to broadcast this petition online through the Peabody broadcast e-mail list on Dec. 11. The request was rejected.
Now the only way for students, staff and faculty to find out about this petition and express their support is through word of mouth and advertisement.
Please read the petition below because this is too important. Peabody needs to hear your voice. Send an e-mail to email@example.com with your name to express your support.
A large number of Gisborne residents will receive natural gas to their homes by February 2008.
However, there is another section of Gisborne which is located over the Calder Freeway, Emmeline Drive, Panorama Drive, and McGregor Road which is home to a large number of residents. These residents are not listed to receive the much needed natural gas to their homes.
Bordenwood Road is a road that is full of potholes and receives very little maintenance over the course of a year. Most often a complaint call or email to the Township is required to have the road repaired, or maintained during severe weather conditions.
The maintenance that is performed is inadequate, and often necessary again within days or weeks. The road is trecherous in the winter and spring months, causing many people to lose control of their vehicle on Bordenwood Road. As well as the extensive damage that is done daily to the vehicles that travel it, such as tires and suspension.
Ryanair have enquired to fly to Karlstad, but they need the local government to support them and then they will come!!
For a long time various disability campaign groups have been calling on the Government to award people with severe disabilities under the age of 60 Winter Fuel Payments.
Unfortunately this is still not happening today. People who have severe disabilities still suffer from the cold just as much as elderly people and we need to come together as one voice against this unfair policy.
The Mayor of Doncaster Mr Martin Winter is in his second term as the directly Elected Mayor of Doncaster, under his stewardship Doncaster has progressed and moved forward and is now much more prosperous than just five years ago.
In 2006 there has been excessive opposition to the Mayoral System with petitions being organised calling for his removal.
This petition is for the upkeep & or blacktop application of Jemison Rd. This 1 1/3 mile stretch of road is heavily travelled on a daily basis. Travel on this road in the spring & winter months is dangerous due to the lack of maintenance.
Please sign this petition if you would prefer the road to be paved or tarred & chipped. Thank you.
NPS Announces Public Comment Period for Yellowstone Snowmobile Rules.
Everyone who would like to responsibly enjoy Yellowstone National Park in the Winter needs to respond. Quickly Or it may be closed during the winter this year forever
The National Park Service (NPS) has proposed a rule requiring that most recreational snowmobiles entering Yellowstone National Park meet specific air and sound requirements and be accompanied by a trained guide. The proposed rule also dictates daily limits on the number of snowmobiles allowed in the park. These guidelines result from the March 25, 2003 Record of Decision http://www.nps.gov/grte/winteruse/winteruse.htm that addressed the impacts of oversnow recreational vehicle use in the park. Details of the proposal are available at http://www.nps.gov/yell/rule. The NPS is accepting comments regarding the rule until October 14, 2003. Comments can be sent to Yellowstone National Park, Planning Office, PO Box 168, Yellowstone NP, WY 82190, or online at http://www.nps.gov/yell/rule.
Since tourism is the number one economic resource of the state of Arizona, just as is for the state of Hawaii. I think we should have the same type of resident cost reduction for golf. In the winter when the weather is great, we have to pay the same outrageous rates as the winter visitors, upto four times the summer rate at some courses. Like Hawaii, all a player would have to do to get the lower rate would be to show his/her drivers license. No new costly forms to fill out.
On February 24th, 2002, the Canadian Men's Hockey team ended a 50 year period by beating the United States of American to capture the gold medal at the XIX Winter Games in Salt Lake City. This came within three days of a similar win by the Women's hockey team, who won their first gold medal in the sport.
We, the undersigned, believe that this occasion should be commemorated by a national statutory holiday known as "Hockey Day".
