Main Road markings

Councillor Berechree (Council Briefs, Thursday March 23 Chronicle) noted recent parking of motorhomes on Stanley’s Main Road below the hotel. Why now, since the Department of State Growth has this past fortnight completed their road marking tasks in the district? A question too late! This is the very item I submitted to council at budget time …

Future of the Tarkine

The logging article in the Circular Head Chronicle on Thursday March 2 (Canopy vigil ahead of logging) fails to inform us on the following question: Are these coupes being clear-felled or will they be selectively logged? Many of us are appalled at the clear-felling and monoculture practices of the logging industry which rape and destroy …

It was disappointing to see a number of horses at Saturday’s show that were not carnival ready, putting their riders and the general public in danger. I noted one horse dumped its young rider twice in as many minutes then reared almost over backwards. There was another that refused all jumps, its rider continued to …

I attended the Lighting of the Christmas Tree on Friday evening. What is generally a great family night soon deteriorated into mayhem. A local shop sold ‘Silly String’ to young children, who then sprayed it on the roads, footpaths and people. The street was a mess, with discarded cans a trip hazard. I can only …

Uniting for the benefit of kids

I was struck in last week’s Chronicle (Thursday October 13) by the reports on coaching and opportunities given to the young people of Circular Head. I refer particularly to the football clubs uniting and going to great lengths to offer young fellas wanting to progress their football careers that opportunity. I’ve been concerned by reports …

Sticking up for Stanley

In reply to ‘Name withheld, Stanley’ (Chronicle, September 15). Firstly, I don’t condone backhanded swipes of our picturesque and quaint fishing village of Stanley. Secondly, have you earned the right to express your unfounded concern, unless you are willing to put your name to any correspondence. The ‘building craze’ in Stanley as referred to, Stanley is entitled …

Barking mad

It has long been a lovingly held rhetoric, when tough calls are made, that it must be the case that our locally elected representatives are clearly ‘barking mad’. It occurs to me that this latest of Smithton pranks, may have our beloved councillors chasing their tails in order to find the culprit. I’d be interested …

Suburban Stanley?

I would like to express my concern with the present building craze in Stanley. Suburbia is starting to take over this beautiful historic little town by the sea. How will it look in a couple of years, what is the council’s planning? What’s going on? Name withheld, Stanley
