1. Say no to the Travellers and Gypsy Site off Hall Lane Little Lever

Landowners who own a section of green belt land located off Hall Lane, Little Lever are in pre-application talks with Bolton Council’s planning department and have put forward proposals to build affordable houses on the site.

However with the plans unlikely to be accepted, due to building on green belt land, they have also put forward a scheme to establish pitches for gypsy and travellers site.

If you have any objections to the proposed gypsy and travellers site then you need to add your name to this petition.

You can’t afford to sit back and think that someone else will do it - This is your community; make sure you have your say!

2. Allow "4 Men and a Little Lady's Frozen Treats" to operate in Farmville NC

4 Men and a Little Lady's Frozen Treats was established with the young and the young at heart in mind. What we are trying to establish is a means for the children and the transportation disabled to be able to enjoy the "old-fashioned" way of getting frozen treats from the local ice cream truck.

All safety precautions will be taken to make this a safe and exciting time for the kids in the neighborhood, and also give them something to look forward to every season.

3. Stop forward motion on transfer station

Proper discussion has not been initiated with the town board, town residents, and BOCC, Road & bridge and county manager and forward motion has begun.

The economic feasibility of this HSS site is not fully researched as the BOCC does not know where the trash will be hauled. Depending on this answer, other sites (specifically Kremmling landfill and Fraser Road and Bridge shop could be more feasible).

There are no regulations in place to insure the community's safety. There are no regulations in place should any regulations be violated with the potential for hazardous health and environmental impacts.

We have been unfairly isolated from the planning process with the above departments. The people of this county should have been involved in this important decision effecting all of our lives.

There are documented examples of other communities transfer stations who do not adhere to maintenance of the facility.

Increased carbon footprint due to truck traffic mileage when traveling large distances to and from Hot Sulphur Springs.

This proposal is in direct conflict with the Grand County Master Plan with the Town of Hot Sulphur Springs on issues of preserving agricultural and ranching views on the east end of the town, and joint development with the county within a three mile area of the town.

There will potentially be a negative impact to the water quality due to the close proximity of the waste transfer station to the Colorado River and the source for the Hot Sulphur Springs municipal water plant.

Negative impact on National Scenic Byway, one of few in the state and country

Negative impact to our community is documented in other communities fights against transfer station. They include, visual, odor, noise, traffic, and ground water issues as listed below:

Truck traffic including leachate and trash escaping from trucks, heavy truck traffic, road infrastructure and damage, and increased noise

Noise pollution with large trucks, the trucks dropping loads that may still be encased in steel dumpsters onto concrete tipping floors which can cause adverse vibration in nearby structures.

Odors escaping from open facility doors and unclean trucks

Falling property values and disease spreading due to external vectors such as bugs, birds, mice, and other vermin

Cumulative impacts on public health and quality of life from noxious odors, water quality contamination, increased external vectors, dust, and truck exhaust

Increased fire hazard involved in storage and transfer of materials

Litter and the resulting reduction of property values from improperly sealed trucks, improperly stored garbage, and from wind when doors are open

Property values will decrease due to above issues

4. Vatican-Revoke Cardinal Njue's Appointment

Cardinal Njue:

-Openly supported PNU and Kibaki's policies.
-Has been against all ODM policies.
-Remained mum on the flawed electoral process.
-Failed to issue a way forward or issue a statement recommending a quick resolution to the current crisis.

Some International human rights campaigners have alleged Kenya's police are carrying out an unofficial "shoot to kill" policy. Cardinal Njue has not condemned this policy.

5. Mitch Landrieu for Governor

Louisiana deseparately needs better government to move forward.

The author of this petition would like it known had I campaigned for Mitch Landrieu as Mayor of New Orleans he would have won. I regret campagning for his opponent in that election. New Orleans remains in chaos. Hopefully, Mr. Landrieu will reconsider running as Governor to get the entire state moving forward as we continue into the 21st century.

6. KMID Versus Grandecom

Guys I am starting a petition. I know you get 100 spams a day but this one is started by me, John May in a request for Midland/Odessa Residents to start a petition demanding something be done with Grandecom and KMID. Here is a scoop on the situation:

As of January 1, 2006 Grandecom will not be allowed to carry KMID's (ABC) signal. KMID all of a sudden decided to demand anywhere from 1-3 cents a day for every subscriber of Grandecom for their use of KMID's signal. Remember this is a FREE signal that Grandecom does NOT charge for. Yes you can pay like 10 dollars a month for local stations but the coverage you get with Cable FAR exceeds the signal you get with an Antenna. They are not making money off KMID's services they are making money for offering you a usable signal.

Just because you use a different Cable Company does not mean you should not sign this petition. This is a petition for the right for smaller companies to compete and for local citizens of Ector and Midland County to be able to receive the same benefits that larger counties receive for free. Cox and Cableone have been trying to scare you away from smaller cable companies for years. Why? Because they are inferior? No. Because they don't want to loose profits AND by having competition they are forced to actually spend money on customer service and listen to customer complaints.

This is the same as TXU trying to scare us away from buying electricity from other companies. I've been with a smaller company since the de-regulation and haven't had any of the problems TXU promised and scared us with.

The way I see it Grandecom AND KMID are both to blame for this. KMID and Grandecom both refuse to give up greed to satisfy customers complaints.

Please sign my petition requesting KMID and Grandecom begin renegotiations and that no stoppage in coverage occurs or if it does we will be forced to have a complete boycott of all services KMID and Grandecom currently offer. Remember if you are not a Grande Com customer this still effects you. This will lead to hire rates with whoever you pay for cable. Why? Whoever stays with KMID will not be forced to pay a premium because they will have the "exclusive" right to offer you a useable signal. Please send this to everyone you know in the effected area. Ask them to forward it on to anyone they know. All responses with signatures can go to I will comprise an alphabetical list of names and forward it to the appropriate people at both KMID and Grandecom.

Remember this email is asking for your support of our local community. This is a request for KMID and Grandecom to disregard their problems and come together without excuses to offer the Permian Basin customers our local stations at a reasonable rate.

If they refuse or continue to just point fingers we will in return boycott all services provided by both companies.

7. Save Family Affairs

August 02, 2005

Family Affairs has been axed after more than eight years, it was announced today.

Five's flagship soap, which was the first to air five days a week, will disappear from our screens at the end of the year after 2250 episodes.

Five's Director of Programmes, Dan Chambers, commented: "I'd like to thank every single member of the cast and crew of Family Affairs, and talkbackTHAMES, for their tremendous hard work and creativity over the last eight years.

"This was a very difficult decision to make but we felt the series had come to the end of its natural lifespan and the time was right to try something new.

"We remain committed to original drama and will be using the budget allocated to Family Affairs to fund a range of programming including several new prime-time drama projects and scripted comedy."

Lorraine Heggessey, CEO of talkbackTHAMES who produce the soap, said: "I respect the decision and understand the reasons behind it. However, I'm disappointed as I felt we had bright new plans for the show including some strong new actors.

"We have several drama projects in development with a variety of broadcasters and I'm looking forward to building upon our reputation and ability to produce award-winning drama."

Head of Drama Johnathan Young added: "My thanks go to everyone at Family Affairs for all their hard work and dedication. There's a lot to be proud of - Family Affairs has told controversial stories with power and integrity and was the first soap to go five nights a week, which is no mean feat.

"I know there will be many disappointed by the news but we must move forward and I'm excited about working with Five on new projects."

The final episode will air in December.

8. Global Challenge Shimane Program

I wish for this program to be recognized and granted more consideration from here on forward.

9. Stop the World Bank carve-up of the Congo forests!

We are asking people around the world to sign an online petition asking the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Read on to find out more, and don't forget to forward this to friends and colleagues, as we need as many signatures as possible.

Logging the Congo rainforests will cut down more than just trees!

The rainforests of the Congo - which are the second largest on Earth after those of the Amazon - are imminently threatened. New laws being introduced under the guidance of the World Bank, as well as a 'zoning' of the country's forests, will potentially see an area the size of France handed out to logging companies.

35 million people (75% of Congo's national population) live in and around the forests, and depend on it for food, shelter, and natural medicines. The forests are also home to thousands of plant and animal species, including the lowland Gorilla, chimpanzees, forest elephants, and the rare okapi. So far, the rainforests have largely been spared widespread destruction.

However, the new laws, which are due to come into effect this year, will encourage a massive expansion of the timber industry, including a 60-fold increase in industrial logging.

This could be the start of the first major environmental and humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century.

The Rainforest Foundation, along with dozens of environmental and human rights groups from the Democratic Republic of Congo is calling on the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to ensure that the rights of people living in the forest are respected.

Please spare two minutes to sign the online World Bank petition and forward this email on to your friends and colleagues?

Yours sincerely

The Rainforest Foundation

13. Bring Back Flash Forward

14. Get Peter Smith a Contract

Peter Smith was born to be a star! You only have to listen to his voice to realise that! Last year he narrowly missed being part of Ireland's very own Popstars Six so when he turned up on Popstars the Rivals many people couldn't believe that talent like his could be missed out on and boy did he show us by making it into the final 10 boys.
However tonight we were shocked when Peter came forward and told viewers that he was in fact 2 months too old to be in the group and therefore gave up his place in the final ten. What Peter did was incredibly brave and noble.
But his talent should not be missed out on, we are petitioning to make sure that he is signed up by a record company because no-one is more deserving than him! So spread the word and sign our petition.
Love Clare and Laura
