Save the 76 Ball - digg http://www.savethe76ball.com/taxonomy/term/63/0 en What You Can Do To Help http://www.savethe76ball.com/tohelp <p><img width="432" height="162" border="0" src="http://static.flickr.com/40/104241155_9a9ff0c7e6_o.jpg" /> </p> <p><strong>Why won't ConocoPhillips talk with us?</strong> On 6/15/06, we called ConocoPhillips with a win-win plan to save and preserve some select 76 Balls. We are still waiting for them to call back. Maybe they need to hear from <strong>you</strong>, too. The main number in Houston is 281-293-1000. Ask for <strong>Sylvia Hansen in External Communications</strong> and request that she call Nathan Marsak back and open a dialogue about how to work together to turn this bad publicity around and save some balls. </p> <p><strong>About our cause:</strong> ConocoPhillips is removing the iconic 76 Balls and replacing them with boring rectangular signs that aren't even orange! Our petition and boycott asks that they STOP THIS and leave the remaining 76 Balls on their poles, where they belong.

And if your local 76 station has already switched to the liver-colored tombstone sign, don't buy gas there and be sure to tell the owner why.
