1. Ashfield No Bedroom Tax Evictions

The Bedroom Tax, which started in April 2013, is a tax on tenants on low incomes needing to claim housing benefit in order to be able to pay their rent. Added to the background of widescale cuts already affecting the poorest in society, the Bedroom Tax further attacks poor and vulnerable people by snatching 14% or 25% off their already tiny incomes.

For Ashfield social tenants this brings an increased risk of eviction and homelessness as things stand.

This is an attack not just on those unlucky enough to be unemployed in the current economic climate it also affects those with jobs - in the past few years approximately 90% of new Housing Benefit (HB) applications have been from people with jobs!

Contrary to the political rhetoric blaming claimants for being 'greedy', the high cost of Housing Benefit is due to landlords charging very high rents and employers paying very low wages. Politicians claim that the Bedroom Tax is about cutting the 'welfare bill' and reducing homelessness, but if those were genuine aims the government would re-introduce rent controls and build more council houses. Instead of these simple and fair measures, the Bedroom Tax further impoverishes the poorest people and paves the way for further privitisation and landlord profits.

Ashfield Homes Ltd and Ashfield District Council can choose to evict tennants falling into arrears through Bedroom Tax or choose instead to assist them in various ways:

2. Support Collingwood's Heritage District

November 4, 2011: UPDATE

Thank you for your wonderful show of support for Collingwood’s Heritage Conservation District. Many of you have left thoughtful and positive comments. I have been deeply moved by your commitment to our downtown heritage district.

I am happy to say that on the council agenda for November 7th, 2011 the motion to remove properties from our Heritage District has been withdrawn!

On Monday November 7th council will discussing the Heritage Advisory Committee’s recommendation to “consider Site Specific Amendments to the 2008 Collingwood Heritage Conservation Plan”. This recommendation would allow for council, the heritage committee, town staff, and the developer to work collaboratively on site development.

Thank you for your part in making this possible.

-------------------------

October 23, 2011:
Collingwood is known and admired provincially, nationally, and even internationally for its downtown Heritage Conservation District.

Our downtown forms one of the largest conservation districts in Ontario and was the first heritage district in all of Canada to be listed in the Canadian Register of Historic Places. This prestigious designation identifies Hurontario Street as “among the best preserved 19th century grand main streets in Ontario.”

And yet, the Heritage District is currently facing its biggest challenge.

Tourists from far and wide come to Collingwood to walk our downtown streets and shop in our stores. Town, regional and provincial publications praise our historic downtown and its architectural heritage. Collingwood has become one of the most popular retirement destinations in Ontario – in no small part because of the beauty of its built and natural landscapes.

And yet, the Heritage District may begin to break apart.

Why? Because Collingwood Town Council has requested a report from its staff on what steps are needed to remove a prominent property from the Heritage District.

Property owners in the Heritage District understand that our downtown represents the heart and history of our town, and as such, is a boost to our town’s tourism and economy. The Heritage By-Law that governs our district was well-researched, well thought out, and approved by town and council. To let a developer simply “opt out” of Collingwood’s Heritage District in order to remove obligations outlined in the By-Law is completely unfair to the many individuals and businesses who have abided by our town’s legislation for years.

If the town council goes forward and allows the property to be removed, then the entire district is vulnerable to similar requests from any other resident or corporation which will slowly erode our heritage. Eventually, there may not be a Heritage District.

Help us to protect Collingwood’s Heritage Conservation District by signing this online petition or one of the paper versions, which are circulating within the Heritage Conservation District.

3. Reasonable restrictions on York HS Stadium use

The most crucial elements affecting local residents are lights and sound from stadium use. Although decibel and footcandle limitations are necessary, we recognize that the single most effective way to minimize all sound and light impact is to limit the number, intensity, and duration of events at the stadium.

In addition, we strongly suggest a trial period for this ordinance; there is no precedent for the number of events on the field next year, and the sound and lighting systems are an unknown quantity.

Stadium conditional usage should be formally reviewed and adjusted by stakeholder input after a year’s worth of experience.

4. Support New York Hair

New York Hair are set to be prosecuted for erecting a temporary Christmas decorative banner on the side of the building despite being previously being advised by Chichester District Council planning dept that seasonal decorations do not usually require permission.

5. Increase Reservoir Storage on Aberdeen Plateau

Enough studies! Construct new and larger reservoir(s) on the Aberdeen Plateau for years when snow/rainfall is heavy so our beautiful community and properties are sustained in dry years.

6. Mokena SD 159 Referendum

We would like to show the Board of Education that they have our support for a referendum to be placed on the ballot in November 2010.

7. Review property values and tex determinations in Brown County, Texas Property

On July 9, 2009 both the Brown County Appraisal District and the Appraisal Review Board were given facts supporting the premises that the properties of Brown County Texas are not being appraised accurately or fairly according to their market value.

The most valuable properties in Brown County are being appraised WELL below their market value, while other, moderately priced properties are being appraised at the very top of their market value. This is not legal under the Texas Property Tax Code and needs to be corrected.

8. Save Warwick's East Gate

UPDATED VERSION (April 21, 2010)

The medieval Eastgate in the historic town of Warwick has been sold. The auction took place on Wednesday April 14 at 6pm. The Grade-II listed property had a guide price of £125,000. It was not possible at short notice to persuade Warwick District Council or any other public body to attempt to take it over, and it was sold by auction for £215,000 to a professional surveyor, Mr Robert Newman, who himself lives near Warwick in a listed building. He has stated that he intends to repair it and initially use it as a holiday flat, with a view to eventually living in it himself with his wife.

Eastgate has seen many changes since it was first part of the defensive system of the town in the twelfth century. The small chapel of St. Peter's perched on top of it, dated to the mid 15th century, but was in a ruinous state by 1571. The ancient monument’s clock tower is difficult to access and repair has been neglected, resulting in the clock permanently standing at seven minutes to three. Its three large rooms from 1879 until recently were used as classrooms by the adjoining King’s High School for Girls.

The structure, claims the Warwick Society, is ‘iconic’, and important in its own right, as an old town gate and a chapel, and as a symbol of the town’s character. It is, they say, self-evidently in poor condition, badly affected by traffic swirling round it, with limited access and unusual accommodation, and it has no clear and economically viable future use. But they still have hopes it can be saved for the town. Their main concern appears to be that nobody will be able to afford the cost of upkeep in these straitened times.

May I express my thanks to those people who signed this petition about Warwick's East Gate, and for the many messages of support. Since the building has now been sold to a private bidder, the request to the Council to negotiate to buy it has become irrelevant. However, the petition will still be presented to the Council on my behalf by Councillor Elizabeth Higgins at their meeting on 28th April. The emphasis however, is now on the part of the petition that asks them to ensure that the building is not allowed to deteriorate, and ensuring that repairs are appropriate and in keeping with the building's historical status. This, I hope, can be done by the right kind of dialogue with the new owner. I have already had a meeting with the Council, and had assurances on this point.

It only remains to wish the new owner the best, and hope that he will look after the building in the way most Warwickians and our many sympathisers would want.

THIS PETITION HAS NOW BEEN EXTENDED AND IS DUE TO BE PRESENTED AT A WARWICK DISTRICT COUNCIL MEETING ON 28TH APRIL, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE OUTCOME OF THE AUCTION.

9. Help Save Extracurriculars at Cherry Hill District Schools

Governor Christie by taking away our surplus to try to curtail the state deficit of $9 Billion is causing our district to make severe cuts. Elementary Schools possibly will have to cut their programs such as TAG, Instrumental Music, and an increase of class sizes.

Middle Schools will have to cut as well programs such as Advisory, the changing of Athletics to Intramural, as well as Mt.Misery. High Schools will also be affected as programs such as Late Buses,and Class Size increases.

While these programs of POSSIBLE cuts, they are taken right from the powerpoint on the District Website, which gave these as possible cuts.

10. Save Meadows Upper Elementary School

Due to Avondale School District's financial crisis a Building Utilization Study was conducted in the fall of 2009. This study was charged with the analysis of current and projected student enrollment, anticipated per pupil funding, residence trends, demographics, school building utilization, and school configuration.

The recommendation proposed was to close one of the five elementary schools in the district. The result of which will maximize opportunities for student achievement to deliver the best instructional program possible within the Avondale School District.

11. Ban punishment, rationing and denial of bathroom use in schools

District 87 has no restroom policy. It is left up to the teacher's discretion and at Irving Elementary that equates to, if you need to use the restroom frequently or when it is inconvenient you will receive a disciplinary mark equal to if you hit, bite, name call, or destroy property. I have contacted several teachers through out the years and this remains the same. I contacted the principal this year and yet it remains the same.

OSHA protects an adult right to use the restroom at anytime yet it is up to us to protect this right for our children.

Some might say just hold it is good practice as to not interrupt the class learning environment. To that I ask you to remember sitting at a desk doing the potty dance. Did you recall anything the teacher said? Were other student busy giggling at you instead of listening to the teacher?

12. Citizens Against the Seven-Period School Day in NEISD

We the students of NEISD, in order to enhance our education, believe that the A/B schedule should be retained, and not switched to a seven-period day. As it is now, we have four periods a day, alternating classes every other day. Eight classes, each 90 minutes long.

If it were switched, we would go to seven periods every day, each roughly 45 minutes long. This would eliminate the eighth class, making it more difficult to take electives related to future occupational interests. In addition, shortening the classes would increase the homework load each day, which would lead to a decrease in interest and a lower homework completion rate. This increased homework would force students to stay awake late at night to complete work due the next day. Students would have less time to study in class and at home, and general performance would fall. This would not be very beneficial in moving towards our goal of becoming a "Distinguished Campus," and having a 95% attendance rate.

Finally, with more periods each day, there would be less time for passing between classes. As it is, going from the top floor of one building, across campus, and up to the top floor of the other building cuts the current eight minutes close. If it were shortened, there would be many more tardies, resulting in more students reaching the tardy limit and getting in trouble even further.

13. Bedworth independent from Nuneaton

Nuneaton has been combined with Bedworth since 1974, the people of Bedworth for the most part do not want it to be this way any longer. Ever since Nuneaton and Bedworth became one council, Bedwoth has got worse and worse.

Currently there are several shops closed in Bedworth, there are rather a lot of charity shops and not a lot else. Without Nuneaton, Bedworth will most likely go back to being one of the top councils in the country.

14. Redistricting of Bradshaw Glen Subdividion

Bradshaw Glen is now districted into the Arnold Mill District which is approxim. 9 miles from the subdividion to Arnold Mill School. Bradshaw Glen is 1.5 miles to Hickory Flat School.

Buses from Arnold Mill would have to pass buses going to Hickory Flat to make pick ups at Bradshaw Glen subdivision.

15. HCHS Dress Code Review

On a Wednesday morning on August 5th, 2009, numerous students of Henderson County High School were sent home or otherwise disciplined for violations of the dress code, including but not limited to: Piercings, tattoos, and torn clothing. The reasoning behind this code, as stated by the staff of said school, is because such things are a distraction to classmates. This is, quite simply, untrue. All of these things are commonplace in this day and age, therefore lacking any significant ability to distract peers.

What is incredibly distracting, however, are arms wrapped in duct tape to cover tattoos, pants with shiny silver duct tape patchjobs to cover the slightest of tears and adhesive bandages covering eyebrows, lips, and other piercings. Far more distracting, and in opposition to the educational purpose of the school, is having to sit in an office for hours on end - missing classtime in the process - over something so trivial as a torn pair of pants rendering one's kneecap visible.

For the past four years, such things as piercings and tattoos have been allowed. The same applies to torn clothing (granted, within limits) and colored hair. For four years, these things provided no significant distraction. It is a far more potent distraction to have the students all wrapped in tape and bandages - and it certainly doesn't help them focus on academic work if they're all riled up over the dress code rules.

Taking into consideration the counterproductive nature of the current dress code, as outlined in the preamble of this petition, I move that the school board review these rules of dress as quickly as possible and REMOVE them. The distractions of the school's so-called "disciplinary procedures" are far greater than the distraction of a couple of rings in one's lip - a sight which is all too common to students these days, thus bringing its alleged status as a "distraction" into serious question. Henderson County High School is a public school - not a private school - and therefore should not have such strict guidelines. The sole role, in practice if not in theory, of this code is angering students and parents alike, keeping students out of class to deal with petty "disciplinary" issues, and rendering the HCHS building void of any and all physical signs of individuality and free expression.

Such trivial obsession over the students' physical appearance distracts from their education. Pulling students out of important classes for hours at a time does nothing to prepare them for the real world nor does it allow them to complete any work. If you check the planners students are required to carry, there are two to five lines - possibly one full page, tops - discussing the school's standards and goals for education. The remaining ten or twenty pages related to school conduct are devoted mostly to discipline - at least three pages of which is in regard to the dress code. A school is supposed to be an educational establishment, not a conformity-obsessed discipline center.

The staff and school board - along with whoever else aided in the formation of these new rules - clearly have their priorities out of order. As many members of the HCHS staff have pointed out themselves, there will be plenty of time to take part in a uniformed work-collective during one's career, so why eliminate what individuality is available during school years?

16. Toastmasters International: allow each Region the right to decide if they wish to host a Regional Conference in one of their Districts

Recently, Toastmasters International Board of Directors cancelled the right for District Regions to host Regional Conferences.

The Regional Conferences, just like District Conferences provides Toastmaster members the opportunity to learn, network and broaden the Toastmasters horizons at a very reasonable cost. The Regional Conference Team made up of the host District, provides all the support and efforts at no cost to the Toastmasters International Board of Directors. The Regional Conference, to the best of my knowledge, has not lost any money and therefore usually either breaks even, or makes money for the host District. The only cost that may be associated is the cost for an International Director to be present at the Conference, but this can be decided by the Regional Conference Team.

This decision should not be up to the ID Board, but should be a decision that is made at the Regional and District levels.

17. Demand Those Responsible Pay Back The Missing Education Dollars

ADLER - AUDITOR'S FINDINGS IN WILLINGBORO MERITS CRIMINAL PROBE

Audit: Willingboro school officials faked financial reports in 2005.

TRENTON - Senator John H. Adler today asked State Attorney General Stuart Rabner to launch a criminal probe to punish those responsible for misappropriating millions of taxpayer dollars in the Willingboro Township School District.

"As we tell our children, there have to be consequences for wrongdoing," said Senator Adler, D-Cherry Hill. "Taxpayers need to know we will dig down to the root causes of wrongdoing and punish those responsible."

In a report by State Auditor Richard L. Fair, it was disclosed that Willingboro officials approved a grossly under-funded budget for the 2005 fiscal year and then falsified reports to cover up the shortfall, causing a crisis which was abated only after the Legislature sanctioned a $10 million bailout loan.

"It is unconscionable that New Jersey taxpayers should be asked to tolerate and to subsidize what very well may be criminal behavior," Senator Adler said in a letter today sent to Attorney General Stuart Rabner. "As a taxpayer, I am appalled. As a State Senator, I appeal to you for a corrective remedy."

The Auditor's report noted that the Willingboro School Board said its vote to approve the budget was based on "falsified" information supplied by district staff. In July of 2005, the board suspended School Superintendent Alonzo Kittrels.

In the wake of a school district deficit set at $5.9 million, three Willingboro schools were shuttered in the district of 5,600 students.

The State audit found that the district's 2005 budget set aside $13.6 million for teachers' salaries when the actual cost was $17.7 million and that a monthly report on the district's financial activity consistently understated expenses.

"Children should see that grownups who abuse taxpayers are held accountable," Senator Adler said. "Otherwise, we're all complicit."

Senator Adler served as co-chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Public School Funding Reform which recommended tighter fiscal accountability procedures for districts throughout New Jersey.

18. No Uniforms for Schools in the Bay County District School System

I am actively working on efforts to gain support within the Bay County Community to show our School Board that a vote to require that all students grades K-12 wear uniforms to Public School.

Not only is the cost unattainable to some low-income families, but changing from the very lenient dress code that is currently in place to one that is far more strict will be a change that will meet much resistance.

Please keep up with my blog as i will let you know about Petition efforts, Public Hearings where your support would be greatly appreciated, and ways in which you can voice your own concerns to your School Board before they vote on August 4, 2009.

19. Restore Riverhead School District before/aftercare Transportaion

After seven (7) years of providing before and aftercare transportaion for school age children residing in Wading River attending Riverhead Schools (Riley Ave) the Superintendent deemed the location of Kiddie Academy Wading River as out of District by 1 1/2 blocks.

The District failed to notify either parents who attended Kiddie Academy or Kiddie Academy of their decision until a new neighbor went to register their child for September busing with the district. We feel the district has not given us ample time to appeal to the district voters, nor the education commissioner to petition for this decision. The district still has not formally notified any parent whose child is affected. We wish to appeal to the district and the board for a hold on their to decision for the school year 2009/2010 to allow for such an appeal and or alternative care and or work schedule.

There is no monetary expense for the district to bus these children to this location as they have to pass the location to provided busing to their homes.

20. Keep our children safe in Mooresville Graded School District

A child was assaulted during track tryouts and the other child got two days suspension and was still allowed to participate in the full track season. Also another student was put in in school suspension, and still is allowed to participate in the school. These extra school actives are a privilege for these students.

These students are taught you can do wrong and you are still about to represent the school district, even when the victims don't feel safe and have to stop doing what they love to do because the school district dosen't keep them safe.

21. Stop ExCEL, Let Sartorette Parents and Teachers Vote!

Cambrian School District is currently planning on implementing a program called RTL using the ExCEL model (Excellence:A Commitment to Every Learner): within Sartorette beginning Fall 2009 meeting the requirements of the law for the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

The district has already decided upon the ExCEL model which will mimic those currently in place for Fammatre and Bagby without considering our individual student requirements.

We are requesting a postponment of implementing such a program until parents and teachers are comfortable with the changes this will force upon each and every student within our school.

22. Preserve the Far West Village/Rezone the C6-1 District

The Far West Village is one of New York's most historic neighborhoods, which community groups and preservationists have fought for years to preserve and protect from over development.

However, there is a six block section of the Far West Village which still contains an anomalous and outdated zoning designation that encourages out-of-scale development, and strongly encourages hotel, dormitory, or office development in a predominantly residential but mixed-use neighborhood.

While this area is now part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, only a change to the zoning can ensure that any new development here truly respects the scale and character of the neighborhood.

23. Civilians Against Online Predators in the School District

I am Matthew the C.E.O. and Lead Investigator for Civilians Against Online Predators www.ca-op.org asking all of you to help us educate our children about online predators and get the word spread that we are here to help.

24. Protect Class Size Reduction

Studies done by California Department of Education and U.S. Department of Education consistently identified a positive relationship between reduced class size and improved student performance. Results from the Tennessee Project STAR (Student/Teacher Achievement Ratio) study have continually demonstrated that reducing class sizes in grades K-3 to 13-17 students substantially increases children's reading and mathematics scores. Our School District is proposing to increase these classes to 30-1.

25. Save Ben's Secret Garden

Ben Carden is being threatened with eviction from his private 2.5 acre plot of land. Since buying this land, he has improved the visual appearance by landscaping and creating a wildlife haven; the land was previously a fly tip area. He runs his business Cardens Gardens from this dwelling, creating jobs for up to 10 people.

Ben has 2 children and if he is evicted he will need to be re-homed by the Council taking up limited housing accommodation. His 2 boys may be restricted to living in a flat instead of growing up in space and fresh air. He will also lose his business and may have to rely on social security through no fault of his own and this will include his employees. Ben has also made a bund, to lesson the noise pollution for his neighbours and himself, this also screens the A1(M). Ben is living in a mobile home, at the present time he cannot afford to get onto the housing market.

Ben was born and raised in Welwyn Garden City; after 3 generations should Ben and his sons have the right to remain in Welwyn Garden City vesinity and his neighbours have the right not to see the A1(M)?

26. ESUHSD Save interscholastic Athletics

The Superintendent of the East Side Union High School District in San Jose, CA has suggested a plan to phase out and/or eliminate High School Athletics throughout the district to keep classrooms from even deeper cuts.

High School Sports is VITAL to the social aspect of a students four years. As it is also CRUCIAL in keeping students out of gangs, away from drugs and off the streets.

Education is definitely the MOST important part of a students High School life, but sports helps students keep or raise their grades. If the ESUHSD eliminates sports they will see a vast decrease in classroom in the aspect of the number of students that will transfer.

27. Free Swimming for Under 16's in Ryedale

On Tuesday 14th October 2008 Ryedale District Council voted against the idea to give under 16’s free swimming. On that same day they decided to give over 65’s free swimming.

This is age discrimination.

This petition is to get a decision discriminating Young People reversed.

29. Longer lunches at Alameda Senior High School

Last year, at Alameda Senior High School, the staff and student body had a total of 45-50 minutes to enjoy the time between classes with a lunch period. This year (school year 08-09) the student body and staff have a mere 35 minutes to eat lunch.

The staff and students feel that the cut in the lunch period should be reinstated. After discussion with many of the staff members, and several students, 35 minutes is simply not enough time to have lunch. Standing in the lunch line at Alameda one volunteer commented, "It took 20 minutes just to get to the counter to purchase lunch, by the time I was able to sit down and eat, I had 5 minutes to eat my lunch."

Other High Schools in the district get between 40-50 minutes for lunch.
The circumstance under which our request should be granted are that the staff and students often go to class without a finished meal or finishing a meal.

30. Freedom of the press in India and Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal ban on news programme

Itanagar: The District Magistrate of Papum Pare district in Arunachal Pradesh banned the airing of news programme by ‘Aaj Ki Awaj’ by cable operators for allegedly violating rules.

The District Magistrate in exercise of his power conferred under section 19 of the Cable TV Act, 1995 prohibited all cable operators from transmitting or re-transmitting the news programme by ‘Aaj Ki Awaj’ with immediate effect, official sources said on Saturday. In an order, the District Magistrate said ‘Aaj Ki Awaj’ has been airing programme without registering with the authorities and alleged the programmes are defamatory and suggestive innuendoes and half truths.

‘Aaj Ki Awaj’ has been covering news from all over Arunachal Pradesh and providing them to cable operators for circulation daily for the past few years after Doordarshan station at Itanagar discontinued airing privately produced news programme. PTI
