1. Review conditions at Trilling Ave. Apartments

My name is Laura Watts. I am starting this petition for all of the people renting an apartment in the Trilling Ave. complex.

I am starting this petition to get the attention of the owners whom don't like to do their jobs or listen to any complaints of their residents. I am trying to prove my point that my family and I are not the only ones who have problems in these apartments.

2. Introduce a Personhood Amendment in Michigan

Urge State Representative Mike Lahti to introduce legislation to begin the process of amending Michigan's Constitution to define life as starting at conception, and protect all preborn children in Michigan.

3. Bring Back Starting Over

This is a television show that had a lot of moral meaning to it.

This being a show, which focused on 6 different women living in the same house together, making changes to their lives, and working toward achieving a life goal. The women have the support of each other, as well as the support and motivation of their life coaches, assisting them toward achieving their life goals.

"Starting Over" has allowed countless people to relate to the life issues (e.g. - money, love, health, relationships, etc.), which the actual women, who participated in the life-changing process were dealing with. This show has even inspired people to make changes in their lives, as have these actual women.

4. Bring Back Sailor Moon

July 28, 2006

Well when I was a kid I used to love anime but now all I see on television is programs about either teenagers wearing make up or programs about talking dogs.

I'm sick of it so I belive we should bring back some anime starting with sailor moon.

5. YMCA Operating Hours

April 23, 2006

The members of the Jefferson City area YMCA have seen the facilities hours of operation be cut back the last two years.

We accepted the early closings between Memorial day and Labor day since the pool was open and staffed for use in the evening. The first cut was closing at 5:00 pm on the weekends from April 1st to October 31st. April, May, September, and October are times when the facility get a lot of late day use.

When the facility posted the head count spreadsheets, you could see the facility closed at a peak use time. These facility use tabulations are no longer posted. Starting this year the facilities are starting to close early on a week night.

We find this practice un-acceptable to the membership. The YMCA is a haven for youth to give them a place to go and play sports. It keeps children off the streets and gives them a positive recreational environment. This does not occur when the doors are locked.

6. Save Point Pleasant !!

This is a petition that I'm starting in the hopes that Fox won't be stupid and cancel this amazing show. I am getting tired of getting hooked on shows only to have them taken off the air. So even though Point Pleasant has only had six episodes on I decided to take action and try to keep this show on the air.

I hope that others will sign this and join me in the fight to keep this show on the air. Fox is on shaky ground with me because I'm not too happy that they cancelled Firefly created by the genius Joss Whedon and cancelled Wonder Falls after three episodes which was also a great episode.

I am still waiting for Tru Calling to start which keeps on getting pushed. So it's a sad day when a person has to already think about starting a petition to save a show that has barely begone.

7. Retain Coatesville Highway Safety class at Coatesville High School

The Coatesville Area School District decided to take away "highway safety" as a class starting the school year of 2004-2005. If you would like to take Highway Safety - Drivers Ed. - as a class to reduce your insurance or to fulfill your Wellness & Fitness Elective... PLEASE sign this.

8. CHANGE IN START TIME FOR SEAHOLM HIGH SCHOOL IN BIRMINGHAM MICHIGAN

ALL PARENTS RECEIVED A PACKET OF INFORMATION REGARDING THE NEW FALL SCHEDULE. THE INFORMATION INDICATED, IN BOLD LETTERS, THAT THERE WOULD BE A CHANGE IN THE STARTING TIME FOR THE AUSTIC PROGRAM AT SEAHOLM HIGH SCHOOL IN BIRMINGHAM, MICHIGAN. CURRENTLY, THE STARTING TIMES ARE MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY FROM 7:25 A.M. TO 2:40 P.M. IN THE FALL OF THE YEAR, THE STARTING TIME FOR TUESDAY AND THRUSDAY WILL BE 9:05 A.M. TO 2:40 P.M. THE STARTING TIMES FOR MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY WILL REMAIN THE SAME. THE PARENTS WERE NOT CONTACTED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY OF THE PLANNING OR TO OFFER ANY SUGGESTIONS REGARDING THE CHANGE IN THE TIME. THESE CHILDREN CANNOT BE LEFT AT HOME ALONE, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE IN SPECIAL EDUCATION -- THEY ALL HAVE SPECIFIC NEEDS. MANY OF THE PARENTS ARE WORKING PARENTS AND THE 9:00 STARTING TIME WOULD BE AN INCONVIENCE FOR MOST PARENTS.

9. Cornwall County Council should provide housing fairly

The council give houses to parents and old people but what about the people just starting out, they have no chance the only way you can get a place is to have a kid and thats why so many young people throw away there life because they are desperate. I think it is time that we made a stand. People who grow up in certain areas should be placed before Councils bring other people in.

10. Save Fernwood 2Night

It has come to my attention that starting in January 2003 TV Land will stop showing Fernwood 2Night. Being a huge fan of the show, not being able to see it when it was first aired (only being 3 years old) The show sometimes is pretty bad, but other times its absolutely histerical. I would like to continue being able to watch the show, So hopefully signing this will help keep in on the air.Thanks, Fernwood Fan

11. Stop whaling in Tonga

Here is a letter sent by the whale watching operators in Tonga:

'The Humpback Whales of Tonga Need YOU.

AS YOU MAY KNOW that there is a strong possibility of Whaling starting in Tongan waters. Over the last two months there has been discussions in Parliament regarding whaling. If whaling is allowed we all will suffer with the lack of tourism. We all know that the Whale watching industry holds a very important role in bringing tourists to Tonga. Many South Pacific destinations have great diving, white sandy beaches etc, etc but what make us unique is the Humpback whales.

Whales Alive has started a petition which will reach the local, national and international supporters of whale watching and 'Stop Whaling in Tonga'. The first step is starting an email-based petition to get to people that have visited or are going to visit Tonga to see the whales. It is short and to the point but I believe it will be very effective. I am asking you to send this petition to people in your email address book to start the ball rolling.'
