Save Alva Pool Group produced a business plan that slashed running cost, detailed revenue streams that would make the pool aprofit centre for the council. Businesses have been found that are wanting to use the pool. This plan was presented to the council on the 17th and again on the 2nd of June. The group discussed the plan with Sam Ovens when he attended a Save Alva group meeting. A plan that shows how to cut costs and increase income is sustainable plan. Why is the council working against the people of Clackmannanshire and determined to close the facility?
Two weeks before the holiday season the cold snap arrived. So quick was the snap that the leaves were frozen onto the trees. The autumn colours of red and yellow turned to gold on the trees, so the winter scene of white had a splash of colour.
Driving along I had to stop and take this photograph. Wish I did this more, but when I Am in the car I Am always having to get some place in time. This time I was on my way home so I could stop, and take this photograph.
Gaza Crisis: Stop the ship - Action needed now for an International Arms Embargo http://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions_details.asp?ActionID=558.
I am against all forms of violence, state sponsored as well. Some people have responded with what about the rockets fired by Hamas. The real reason for this war is because next month there is an election in Israel. The true story about this war is not being told.
There was agreement made between Israel and Hamas in the middle of last year. The peace agreement was in return for no rocket attacks Israel would ease the blockade of Gaza. Hamas stopped the rockets, and what did Israel do they increased the blockade. That agreement was in place for 6 months. Israel did not keep to its part of the agreement to easy restrictions on blockade. The beginning of 2008 eight hundred trucks were going into Gaza by the end of the year, before the rocket firing started Israel was allowing only 90 trucks a day into Gaza. On top of that Israel bombed Gaza in November before any rocket attacks. Any deaths are bad but how can Israel justify killing over a 1000 Palestinians. 12 have died in Israel. Only reason Israel is waging this war is because there is a general election next month in Israel. Palestinians are die because the present government wants to get re-elected. Humans are paying with their lives for votes.
