THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FANS OF TEGAN AND SARA ARE EXCITED TO HAVE THEM PLAY COACHELLA 2008 BUT WE THE LOYAL FANS WANT THE LOVELY TWINS TO HEADLINE THEIR OWN SHOW IN LOS ANGELES AND SANTA BARBARA.
July 26, 2006
Several websites, televised media, as well as printed media have addressed the treatment of African-American women guest hosts on "The View". These women have been treated with offensive and humiliating statements and actions. For instance:
1. "Barbara Walters, with no warning, grabs some of Brandy's curly locks and asks, "Is this your real hair?"
2. Just before signing off, Walters took a pull at (Tanika) Ray's hair to check for authenticity. Tanika showed everyone that it was all real.
3. (although her hair was not pulled) Barbara refers to Mo'Nique's children as creatures.
Personally, I'm offended!!! How dare she! Just because she's Barbara Walters that does not give her the right to treat people in this manner. I am no fan of Star, but if this is what she had to contend with while on The View, it's no wonder why she was perceived as defensive on the show. She had to be..........while dealing with this old "lady".

I have started this petition in the hopes of taking it to the 2007 Canadian Idol auditions. My goal is to prove to the executive producers, John Brunton, and Barbara Bowlby that each Canadian deserves the opportunity to pursue his or her dream of singing, and age should not be an issue.
In April of 2006 I attended the Canadian Idol auditions in Kitchener Ontario. I went there to ask the producers to consider producing another Idol competition.
I thought that if Mr.Brunton and Ms.Bowlby were sceptical of how successful an " Open Idol" would be, they could simply take advantage of the millions of viewers that tune into the show every week.
My suggestion was to put two 1-800 numbers up during the show and ask Canada to vote on it, at the final Canadian Idol show this year, announce what Canada had decided!
I was not treated very well. I was yelled at in front on hundreds of competitors and parents. I was told the producers were too busy to talk to people like me. I was grabbed at, and humiliated.

I think Canadian Idol has just scratched the surface of what kind of undiscovered talent it out there.
Talent is talent.
Discrimination can takes many forms... even wrinkles
Thank you for your support!
Santa Barbara has bike paths on State and Bath. But only one street perpendicular to State has a bike path and that street is Anapamu. Yet this bike path is not enforced. Anapamu is not wide enough to allow for both parking and a bike path and the city allows parking on Anapamu. Our streets are crowded and will become more crowded as all the condo projects, that are currently being constructed, come to completion.
Our city council members have agreed to spend millions on yet another downtown parking garage, on the corner of Victoria and Anacapa. Yet nothing is being done to improve our city for bikes, walking and public transportation.
The Santa Barbara Community Academy no longer has adequate space at its current campus, 215 East Ortega St. The School Board has decided it will no longer support and move forward with plans to expand the current campus. A option presented was to possible move a portion of the SBCA to the campus of La Cumbre Junior High. Having already experienced negative effects of a split campus this option is not ideal and is not supported.
Currently there are 18 empty classrooms at LaCumbre Junior High and existing land surrounding the school where the Academy's portables and other empty portables in the district could be moved. The campus has a auditorium and cafeteria in addition to much more adequate playground facilities.
Santa Barbara has initiated strict set-back requirements for home owners. Requirements that restrict the use of sometimes up to 25% of one's property; for the sake of a obsure definition of 'Quality of Life'. Yet these requirements are only applied in the horizontal plane and not also in the vertical plane and over all building zones. For example, a home owner and developer can build vertically, next to single story building, which cut off all 'rights of privacy', 'light' and even 'air' from their neighbors.
If restrict vertical development if two or more story structure (house, condo or office building) affects their neighbors 'right of privacy', 'air' and 'light'. Right of privacy is defined as 'can the neighbor see right into the back yard of their neighbor'.
PETITION TO STOP EUTHANASIA OF WILDLIFE IN CLAWSON, MICHIGAN
We have made a number of attempts to work with the mayor of Clawson, Mayor Barbara L. Iseppi, but to no avail.
Were hopeing that a petition, with the signatures of over 10,000 people will persuade her to understand that she as well as the other city officals have no right to capture and kill any form of wildlife.
Thank you so much!!
