The Parramatta Board and coach need to go. Enough is enough.
The board has been making bad decisions for years now, and is tearing apart our club.
Skateboarding is absolutely prohibited on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz. We would like to at least have this ordinance amended so that only trick skating is prohibited, as only trick skaters damage property when attempting or performing "tricks".
Those on a skateboard in the bike lane only wishing to get around prove no greater threat to themselves or others around them than cyclists.
We wish that skateboards be allowed in the bike lane, as long as no "tricks" are performed.
Beacon Hill neighbors have started a project called the Alcohol Impact Area Initiative (AIAI) in an effort to get an Alcohol Impact Area for the hill.
Several years ago the Washington State Liquor Control Board allowed certain areas such as Pioneer Square, the Downtown Core, and the University District to restrict or ban the sale of specific types of low cost, high sugar, high alcohol content beer and wine. These drinks are the beverages of choice for many chronic public inebriates.
Many neighbors have stories of people passing out on their lawn, drinking and loitering at bus stops and being harassed for money outside local stores or on sidewalks. Stories like these were the impetus to create the AIAI.
The process to get an AIA on Beacon Hill will likely be long and involved and the AIAI needs your help in supporting this effort. You can help by signing this petition and also by collecting cans and bottles of the targeted beverages for evidence to officials. A list of the targeted beverages as well as more details on the project can be found on the Facebook page (Beacon AIAI) as well.
CHAMPS Charter High School, Van Nuys, Ca.
[Important Note - When signed anonymously your name and info will not be shown to anyone other than the Petition Administrator and possibly a Notary Public for verification purposes. *Petition Administrator]
To implement the Democratic Process for Nomination and Election of CHAMPS Board of Directors with representation of all stakeholder groups as provided in the CHAMPS charter and bylaws.
It is understood that the acting Board of Directors efforts have been with the best of intent. Those efforts are greatly appreciated by all stakeholder groups. However, it has become apparent that as the school achieves the necessary growth that insures its longevity, that the governing role proportionately becomes broader in spectrum and demands a broader view from the diverse perspectives of all stakeholder groups.
It is the goal of this petition to motivate actions that will ultimately lead to increased transparency, communication, checks and balances, accountability, and a broad overall view in respect to the governance of CHAMPS.
This can best be served by following provisions in the Charter and Bylaws as outlined below:
Prince Philip Elementary School is an integral part of the Ainslie Wood neighbourhood.
We deeply believe the best interests of its students are served by keeping the school open.
The Upper Grand District School Board has chosen Waverley Drive Public School to be the home of English-track King George Public School students while the new King George school is being built.
Waverley is located several kilometres from the King George site and the Board is expecting students to walk up to 45 minutes to and from school along and across busy roads, including arterial roads such as Eramosa and Speedvale.
However, due to safety concerns, it is unlikely that many students will actually walk. Many parents will be forced to drive their child to school, causing traffic congestion and safety concerns at Waverley. Parents unable to drive their child may send their child to school on a City bus, but some parents will be unable to afford the cost - more than $600 for the school year.
Parents choose where to live based upon their personal perception of their child's safety when walking to school, and affordability if their child needs to take a City bus. It is unfair for the Board to impose new conditions on the families affected by their transition project. Such Board initiatives should be designed to avoid unnecessary disruption to families, and potential danger to students.
A solution discussed among parents has students continuing to walk to and from a site near King George, and the Board providing a quick 'shuttle' bus between King George and Waverley.
This solution allows the healthy walking culture at schools such as Laurine Avenue and Ottawa Crescent Public Schools to continue, while providing safe transportation to Waverley.
The Board's King George transition project has a budget near $9 million. Most parents of students walking to and from King George have subsidized the busing of students at other schools for many years. Now students in the King George area need busing - for one school year - and parents are being told the well is dry. Surely the board can find the funds to provide shuttle busing to and from Waverley while a new King George Public School is built.
Vancouver has been without a dedicated Track & Field facility since 1982 when the Empire Stadium track as removed. The city needs a track and field facility that will allow for the training of school and club athletes, as well as all members of the public in a safe environment and also provide the opportunity to host events to at the provincial level and possibly beyond; at present there is no facility where this is possible.
The lack of such a facility limits the ability of schools and clubs to expose the school age citizens to the sport of track and field.
The Vancouver Parks Board budget planning process for 2012-2014 is just beginning and it is important that the facility is given priority.
Please show your support by signing this petition. The approximate cost of such a facility would be $3.5 million.
Las Vegas hip hop community has been shut out due to a memorandum sent out to casino's in Vegas area. Which prevent artist from performing and creating a positive outlook on our community.
We have several venues that have been closed and intimidated due to the police action. This keeps our community from creating a positive atmosphere, and generated capital.
Rondee has been at Parker for 15 years. District has other employees in place that are "directly related" and do not show a conflict of interest.
The Cook County Peace Officers Memorial has been in the planning stage for over nine years now without any progress.
We now need to apply pressure to those Cook County Commissioners and help educate the residents of cook county in seeing that the memorial becomes a reality.
We need to remember those 675 Peace Officers that gave their lives all while in the line of duty. This includes federal. state, county, area and city of Chicago officers.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Compensation and Review Board is purposely designed to NOT pay compensation.
The Board has been losing Veterans' essential documents for the sole purpose of tiring Vets to quit their fight for justice.
Our children have to sit on a bus for 30 minutes to wait for the High School Bus. We understand that it is to alleviate the price of fuel for the buses, but it is not our children's fault that the district is having money problems.
We feel that the school day should be shortened like it use to be or make the classes longer so our kids do not have to wait on a bus.
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.
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.
Bushwick Ballfield is a vital part of our community in Bushwick Brooklyn. The past few years our park has been taken over by notorious gangs and thugs that have created a hostile environment for our baseball Little League and football programs.
We have witnessed everything from gang initiations to drug use and drug buys inside the park while our kids and coaches were present. The park is constantly dirty with garbage thrown everywhere including broken liquor bottles.
The two park entrances constantly smell like urine because its used as a public bathroom. Our members are being subjected to this on a daily basis and now its time to take our park back.
Going before the Ben Hill County Board of Commissioners on April 6, 2010, is the 2011 SPLOST Referendum.
The Fitzgerald City Council voted unanimously in favor of the final proposal in February 2010, meeting.
We ask that the City Council to reconsider allocating $600,000 toward synthetic turf.
We are continuing to collect signatures as the referendum is planned to appear before the County Commissioners on April 6, 2010.
In the past Barnum High School has employed a State Licensed Guidance Counselor. During the past two years Barnum High School has used a Dean of Students (who is a certified teacher/not educated or licensed as a Guidance Counselor) to fulfill the duties of a Guidance Counselor. The Barnum High School Students deserve a Licensed Guidance Counselor.
The hiring of a Guidance Counsellor is already in the Operating Budget of the school. This change will not eliminate any jobs as the teacher acting as a "Dean of Students" is tenured and will revert back to her teaching duties (without loss of pay or grade). Barnum High School Staff and Students deserve the immediate hiring of a Licensed Guidance Counselor.
Facing a $100 million deficit, the Broward School Board debates their options for cuts. The cuts suggested by district staff included cuts to art, music, and physical education at the grade school level.
It's time to stop putting children on the back burner! It was bad enough when they cut our funds, now they want to cut our children's programs.
We need to stand up for our children and fight! Especially when the board is wasting money on an upcoming recruiting drive in New York. Superintendent James Notter and the School Board approved taking out an ad in the New York Times and agreed to send "recruiters" to the Big Apple to search for new employees.
Why are we recruiting in NY when we have approximately 800 teachers statewide which were laid off last year!
Repeated pornography issues in & among the Rutland City Police Department.
Lack of leadership & morale of/in the Rutland City Police Department.
Lack of action as is required to do “on behalf of the City and betterment of the community,” by the Police Commission.
Lack of transparency within the City government & offices.
Supporters and riders of the 552, 553, 554, 557,929, 951, & 952 Fairfax Connector buses who oppose the elimination of these bus routes in the Proposed FY 2011 Fairfax Connector Budget.
The Perry Bullpen is seeking support in attempting to re-name our High School Baseball Field in the name of Head Coach Frank Gamble. Coach Gamble has coached in Ohio for 37 years and 20 years at Perry. He is in the Top 10 in the state in total wins as a coach (537), belongs to 4 Ohio High School baseball Halls of Fame, has a .614 winning percentage while at Perry, has the Top 12 most winning seasons in Perry History and 15 of the top 20 seasons.
Additionally Coach Gamble has led the charge in raising of $500,000 in financial support for our baseball program. This includes (New lights, New dugouts, Fencing, Batting Cages, Score Board, Grass Seed, Replacement dirt, Brick Dust, New Concession Stand and much more) We would like to petition the Perry School Board for approval in renaming our field in Coach Gambles honor.
The Stetson Hills CC&R's were written towards the aim of protecting our largest investment -- our homes. The Stetson Hills board of directors does not recognize that allowing unfinished wood on the private access gates of the homes in our community to become blackened over time is a detracting element which is negatively impacting our homes' values. Furthermore, the board does not acknowledge nor recognize that this is in violation of the CC&R's, which is the governing document of our association.
Specifically, the CC&R's brought to bear read as follows:
1.27 "Improvement" means: (a) any Residential Unit, building, fence or wall; (b) any swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, road, driveway, parking area or satellite dish; (c) any trees, plants, shrubs, grass, granite or other landscaping improvements of every type and kind; (d) any statuary, fountain, artistic work, craft work, figurine, ornamentation or embellishment of any type or kind (whether or not affixed to a structure or permanently attached to a Lot or Parcel); and (e) any other structure of any kind or nature.
3.8 Repair of Buildings. No Residential Unit, building, structure or other Improvement on any Lot, Parcel or other property shall be permitted to fall into disrepair and each such Residential Unit, building, structure and other Improvement shall at all times be kept in good condition and repair and adequately painted or otherwise finished.

The Village of Barrington Hills is seeking to enact an Exterior Lighting Ordinance that will significantly restrict resident's rights to choose how they illuminate their homes, driveways and landscapes.
The Ordinance was drafted at the request of the Village Board by the Plan Commission, and is now being considered by the ZBA for approval and subsequent forwarding to the Board.
Most in the village believe the Ordinance is too restrictive. Anything from a simple, single floodlight to the wattage of the lighting at one's doorway would be regulated with fines imposed for non-compliance regardless if you live on one or one hundred acres.
We believe this is wrong, and hope that you agree with your petition signature.
It is time for change in the catholic school board. Students should be able to have access to an accepting environment that allows them to be comfortable in their own skin.
This organization unites students who feel they do not belong and who may be different from the regular students. It also is the promotion of a hate free environment where prejudice is not tolerated. This is an environment where individuality is accepted.
Recently my 8 year old daughter who was supposed to stay in an afterschool childcare program, was accidentally put on the school bus to ride home. Upon arriving home to an empty house, her bus driver let her off of the bus and left her untill 5:30 in the afternoon. The transportation department claims that they are only responcible for preschoolers and kindtergardeners. I as a parent am outraged at the fact that is is ok for our school system who are responcible for our children, to just be allowed to drop elementary aged school children off regaurdless of age or supervision.

Wayne County High School is using curriculum (required/optional reading) that has vulgar language, "Adult" subject matter, and explicitly sexual language: "The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini.

The Board will recommend to the ORSC at its September 9, 2009, meeting the following changes, effective for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015:
- to retire with no actuarial reduction to one’s retirement allowance, a member must be age 67 with 10 years of service or age 57 with 30 years of service;
- a member may retire early at age 62 with 10 years of service or age 60 with 25 years of service;
- f a member retires early, base early retirement reductions on actuarial reductions from the lesser of age 67 or possible attainment of 30 years of service.
To minimize the possibility of making unnecessary benefit changes and increasing member and employer contributions, SERS’ Board opted to periodically examine its 30-year funding responsibility and recommend benefit or contribution changes as needed. Should the recommended retirement eligibility changes for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015 fail to keep SERS within the 30-year funding window, the Board will consider other changes such as reducing cost of living adjustments and contribution increases for members and employers. The Board also understood that it could look at the costs of the Health Care program, if needed. This tiered approach addressed concerns from SERS’ advocacy groups that overreacting to the present funding situation could adversely affect members and retirees for many years.
Even before the current financial crisis began, SERS’ Board took action to keep the pension fund stable. SERS was the only Ohio public pension system to address pension design changes necessary to offset increased life expectancy when it introduced S.B. 148 in 2007 and advocated for its passage.
Our homeowners president has fired our managment company and his hired his own company and has been getting paid. He and the board who consist of his friends voted for this action. Some on the board are in business with him. He has given the landscaping for our subdivision to his company as well and has just asked for more money. This is against our by-laws and covenant.
