RE: your story about 20 drink-drivers being caught. Have I missed something?
It’s the “festive” season and more than 99.75 per cent of a presumably random sample of drivers were sober.
It’s only the less than 0.25 per cent who were “not OK”.
We good people get a bit tired of being lectured by those with a tendency to fire broadsides at the entire population.
JUST wondering if the people who are doing the most complaining about the petrol prices are the ones who abandoned the petrol stations who were not part of the Coles/Woolworths duopoly to save a couple of dollars per tank a few years ago.
Inflating the price of petrol has always been the big two’s goal once they closed down a lot of their competitors.
And good luck to the few independents left who are cashing in as well.
They managed to survive the lack of loyalty shown for a couple of dollars, so once they empty the barrel of oil into the bowser it is good to see they are having a second use for the barrel.
The same will happen with bread, milk, green groceries, butchers, etc.
Just wait until they put the price of petroleum jelly up.
Then there will be some moaning, but you only have yourself to blame.
AFTER a four-year journey, Temora Shire Council is ecstatic to learn that we will be able to continue as one of the best councils in NSW.
Our Member for Cootamundra, Katrina Hodgkinson, has been a tremendous support for Temora.
We thank our former state MP, Adrian Piccoli, for all his strong and consistent support.
Mr Piccoli has been and always will be a good friend of Temora shire.
As I reflect back on the past few years, I have been truly inspired by the commitment and dedication of my deputy mayor, councillors, general manager and every staff member on the council team.
We have become even closer as a team during this process and I am proud of them all.
Council thanks NSW Minister for Local Government, Paul Toole.
We appreciate very deeply the minister allowing us to continue being a strong, progressive and united council and community.
Minister Toole has been nothing short of exceptional in all our dealings.
He has been upfront, respectful and committed to the same things we are – to strengthen the local government sector.
But most of all, we thank our fellow citizens.
Their prayers, encouragement and support has been vital to us as we have been on this roller coaster journey.
It is quite humbling to know how much our community believe in us, as we in them.
We must also take a moment to feel for those councils that have been referred to the Boundaries Commission.
Council elections are proposed to be held in March 2017, instead of September 2016, as previously scheduled.
I had always told my councillors, staff and community – along with countless MPs – with a strong and solid council and community, nothing at all will beat us.
I am elated at the moment and cannot remove the grin from my face.
As a celebration, council will be arranging a community barbecue to be held early in the new year.
We always said if we win this one, we would have one of the biggest shindigs this shire has ever seen!
