Dog parks delight people as well as their dogs | The News & Advance
have a dog? And in Lynchburg, while the exact percentage is unknown, it is estimated that there are 15,000 dogs within the city limits. In Lynchburg, open space is quite limited, so there are fewer and fewer areas for owners to exercise their dogs freely. There’s a relatively easy solution , one that’s been implemented more than 700 times around the country: an off-leash dog park. The National Recreation and Park Association defines a dog park as “a contained public area where dog owners may allow their dogs to run off-leash.” Dog parks allow dogs and their owners to socialize in a leash-free environment ... market research, surveys and trends


Vermont Journal of Environmental Law
In 1995, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final policy, "Incentives for Self-Policing: Discovery, Disclosure, Correction, and Prevention of Violations." [1] This policy, more commonly referred to as the Audit Policy, is designed to encourage greater compliance with environmental regulations by providing incentives for facilities to voluntarily disclose and correct violations of environmental regulations. [2] More specifically, the Audit Policy eliminates or reduces civil penalties for violations that facilities disclose as the result of a documented self-audit procedure and correct within 60 days.

"At no time in this twentieth century has the dynamic and changing character of retail distribution been more in evidence than is the case today. This character of American distribution is a composite result of a high-level economy, an economy which by any comparative standards is relatively free and an economy in which distribution is highly competitive"--economist Malcolm McNair. The most interesting point to be made about McNair's statement is that it was made nearly 40 years ago in a text titled, "Significant Trends and Developments in the Postwar Period." Yet, it would be difficult to find ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Pat Haden: Right Time, Right Man To Right USC Trojans' Sinking Image
It was announced Tuesday that Pat Haden would succeed Mike Garrett as the athletic director at the University of Southern California. In light of the penalties levied against the USC athletics program in the aftermath of the NCAA's investigation into violations most notably in football and men's basketball, the timing and choice could not be praised more highly. Who is Pat Haden? Mr. Haden played quarterback at USC from 1972-1974 and was part of national championship USC teams in 1972 and 1974. He was also an academic All-American twice. Additionally, while playing for the NFL's LA Rams in the mid-late 70s he ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
AP's Litke attacks Alabama's Nick Saban
From the AP comes Litke’s attack on Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban. (You can read the entire column below the choice excerpts.) Litke writes this about Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban’s thoughts on agents as pimps, “Oh, I don’t know, maybe the same way some parents felt when their son came home and told them you decided not to renew his scholarship, which undoubtedly said more about the caliber of athlete he is than whether he was a good student.” And you have proof of that Litke? Has any athlete said he lost a scholarship because it was canceled? There have been players who transferred ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Proper role of the government? - Yahoo! Answers
What is the proper role of the government in the provision and funding of education, heath care, housing, job security, care of the elderly and public safety? Pretty broad... I believe government needs to stay out of the personal lives of the people. Government needs to be small. Taxes should be minimal. But ultimately, I believe that the main job of government is to create an environment where people can be successful. Where the only limitations on ones life and success are the limits of ones own enthusiasm, spirit, fortitude, and courage. If these things are done properly, people develop a sense of self-worth.
