Pool petition

Councillor Spinks claims credibility of some of the signatures to the petition – of which there were 688 – were coerced into signing. I was one that signed the petition after reading what it stood for and am offended by his statement. The petition was legal in all form and should have been accepted by …

Big sister

While some industries are closing down, others are opening up, so let’s not despair. Things usually pan out for a district with such a diverse range of enterprises and activities. Most ghost towns got that way because of their dependency on one main industry, and they ran out of resources. On a more positive note, …

Our community is suffering

The only people that can help – US. You’ve heard it before, but it’s never been more important – we need to shop locally. Travelling along the coast or going online to buy something or use a service that is available here just to save $30 is costing us our jobs. One day that job …

Fantastic paths

So many people like to complain or put down our local councils for what they do or do not do. I’m writing to say what a fantastic job Circular Head Council has done with all the footpaths and crossings at every street corner. I’m in an electric wheelchair and come down to your fine town …
