Petition to Mayor of Bowling Green,KY April 11, 2006 12:48 PM
I have a new petition on the petition site for the Barren River in Bowling Green,KY. Please sign it to save the Barren River from the development which is even now in progress on the watershed and banks of the water source for the City of Bowling Green,KY and Warren County.
This is the link to the information site on the subject.
Every month members of World Heritage Alert are encouraged to support important heritage campaigns by performing just a few simple tasks.
Our challenge in March is as follows:
United Kingdom – Thornborough Henges.
Vote for this Icon of England and help put Thornborough on the map! Thornborough Henges were once the largest religious site in Britain. Today the monument complex is being quarried for gravel while the people of the world have forgotten they exist. Please vote for Thornborough on this important government poll – no registration required.
One of Turkeys most important heritage sites is the Roman Spa of Allianoi. Unfortunately a new dam is going to flood the entire site which will wreck it. A small change to the dam design would stop this.
As every visitor to Stonehenge will agree, its
surroundings leave much to be desired. Indeed, the site has been described in Parliament as “a national disgrace”. There is a new petition to ask the UK government to fix this:

abusing her and it continued until at age eighteen, she finally killed
Stacey Lannert has been in prison since 1990 and she is
serving a life sentence WITHOUT the possibility of parole! She is now
33 years old. All of her legal appeals have been exhausted! Her only
hope is if Governor Matt Blunt will sign her application for Executive
Clemency which has been pending since 1998!
Do you want to help? There are three things that you can do today!
International call to enter Venerable Trees of the Earth in the list of the World Heritage of UNESCO.
Venerable Trees are part of the Biodiversity and the Sustainable
Development. They are the “Spirits of the Earth”. The ancient trees
represent an historical, natural, and cultural heritage. Seen the
fragility of the Environment and the non-respect given to the old
trees, it is important that they are protected and classified as World
Heritage in UNESCO. It is really urgent ! In 2005, an old
french Yew tree (Taxus bacatta), which had nearly 400 years old had
been logged without respect (A89 Highway construction). To protect them, an International Call is launched to enter these old trees in the list of the World Heritage. The main goal is to make aware people about environment, about trees, but first of all to protect these old and sacred trees.
Call to enter Venerable Trees of the Earth, elements of the World Heritage :
trees live older than the men do, there are thousand year old which
survived the storms, the axe, the fire or the indifference. Some had
seen many generations of human beings. They are the only witnesses of our past, survivors of the 90 % destroyed original forests in the world. The
very old trees deserve the respect, which we must give to the wise old
men who crossed time. Nevertheless, in the world, sometimes, we forget
them in an end of forest, an extent of desert, a slope of mountain.
Worse still, they are cut down, instead of their paying. Give them
homage. A start is necessary everywhere to find a solidarity of planet
with regard to these trees of life which, them, can also trace us the
ways of a greater human fraternity. This call to the world respect
is sent to the United Nations to enter large monumental trees in the
list of “World Heritage”. It relates to also the States, the regions,
the communities, and each one of us. So that everywhere in the
world, we recognize the trees aged of several centuries, that we would
see them and flower them as a sign of friendship, that we plant and
that we protect their descent, relay of planet. Few personalities already aware to trees are invited to join this call in favour of the venerable trees of the world. When
all international signatures of this call will be gathered, an
International Committee will be created to enter the Venerable Trees as

The Sequoia Park Zoo in Eureka, California has been keeping Bill, the
chimpanzee, in solitary confinement for years. He is imprisoned in a
tiny cement cell and the City of Eureka refuses to let him go to a
sanctuary where he can be with other chimpanzees and run on grass and
swing on trees. Please demand the Eureka City Council to do the right
and humane thing and let Bill go to a chimpanzee sanctuary where he can
enjoy life. He must not be allowed to continue to languish in and
eventually die a lonely death in his cell.

Please sign this petition...Where I live It's getting worse and worse the discrimination against these breeds.Many places allow you to have pets if you rent or don't own your own home but they are telling you these breeds are not allowed. To "euthanize" all pit bulls in Denver,Co is disgusting!!!
Why aren't all serial killers put to death immediately?? This is insane and as a dog owner who is responsible
breeds are wonderful an nothing is wrong with the breeds.They are so
sweet. So while outside playing they may catch a mole or two. All dogs
I know ofdo this. It's not a sign of a vicious animal.
Typically it is not the breed that has problems. It's the owner that trains these breeds and others to do harm.
The laws need to start enforcing the animal abuse laws.
This is heartbreaking and unfair.....I don't know who made people think they are better than a sinless living
creature just because they can't talk . They are not born vicious. It's
the owners/criminals that train dogs to be that way.
Certain breeds have their unique characteristics but they don't turn unless trained to do so.
Please Sign,Cross-Post,Forward,etc....Please CARE..!! Thanks in advance,Kym Cree
and more states and cities throughout the US are passing laws
restricting and even banning certain breeds altogether!Some cities like
Denver,CO even went so far as to EUTHANIZE any and all "pit bulls"!
These laws mainly pertain to Rottweilers and "pit bull" breeds, but
also include Chows, German Shepard's, and Akitas. Please help stop the suffering for many good pet owners and innocent animals!
Thank You Christie Bonamassa for sponsoring this petition.
I thought you might be interested in this Union of Concerned Scientists petition to convince Pilgrim's Pride, the nation's #2 chicken producer, to end the overuse of antibiotics in the feed of chickens that are not sick. This practice leads to the development of antibiotic-resistant diseases, and is a serious threat to human health!
Ruth Sharon Hoffman disappeared from River Rouge, MI, June 30, 1986. Her only daughter, Debbie, has NEVER given up tryint to find her.
Ruth went on a job interview as a singer at a local "cops" bar. She returned home the next day via the hospital after being brutally raped by the owner and a friend. After bathing, she went for a walk and never returned. RRPD ignored her daughter Debbie's pleas and NEVER investigated.
We, the undersigned, are now asking the State Attorney General of Michigan to open a COMPLETE investigation.
Canada's Animal Cruelty Law Reform February 11, 2006 3:30 AM
Currently, animal abusers get a maximum of 6 moths in jail, $2,000 in fines and a ban on owning animals for 2 years. Bill C-50 proposes 5 year jail terms, up to $10,000 in fines and possible lifetime bans on owning animals. Stephen Harper is a cat lover, tell him it is time to step up and do the right thing for animals and Canada!
All this year we in India have been bombarded with appalling news
reports about the poaching of our national animal the tiger (Panthera
tigris bengalensis). The Sariska National Park in Rajasthan was found
to have not a single tiger left. Poaching gangs are still active in
most of our other national parks, including world famous parks under Project Tiger. The gangs use steel traps, firearms and electric wires
to kill these precious animals. The situation is now very grim indeed,
and shows a complete lack of commitment and concern on the part of all
the forest departments who are supposed to manage and monitor the
parks. Forest guards are demoralized, and since vacancies have not been
filled for the last twenty years, most of them are over the age of 45
years, unarmed, and not in a position to fight the poachers. Political
will is sadly lacking, and any measures taken recently to stem the rot
have been at best half-hearted, and at worst, non-existent.
A Tiger Task Force was set up some months ago by our Prime Minister who
is genuinely concerned about the issue, but their recommendations are
not very helpful since they dilute the issue by confusing it with the
rights of forest dwellers, and do not address the urgent problem about
what to do as regards poaching. If implemented, their suggestions will
actually do more harm to the tiger because they will compromise its
habitat. A few months ago an investigation revealed the shocking fact
that most of the skins of our butchered tigers, leopards, snow leopards
etc. (all endangered species in the Red List of CITE have found their
way to Tibet where they are openly sold at astronomical rates to be
worn at certain festivals.
This petition seeks to request the Indian Government
· to ensure that our protected forest areas (a mere 4% of the total
land mass) be kept inviolate from human habitation or exploitation of
· to see that forest guards are appointed, preferably from among
local people in the case of each park, so that they have a stake in
wanting to save the tiger
· to ensure that the forest guards are appropriately equipped and trained
· to deploy the army and / or ex-servicemen in each park with guns and orders to shoot poachers at sight
· to consult the many tiger experts and scientists in the country,
most of whom are resented and ignored by forest department officials,
since they invariably blow the whistle about any shortcomings of the
We CANNOT let the tiger become extinct in the wild in India,
certainly not for fictitious medicinal value, nor to satisfy the vanity
of a few humans. It must be allowed to burn bright forever in our
