No money for gravel

AS A Herald reader please tell me how our shire councillors can spend ratepayers’ money on whatever they feel like.  

Yet every time over the past 14 years I have written to our shire and last year when I went to the works depot to see if they could put a shovel-full of gravel on Blackbutt Place in Morangup I was told the budget of $550,000 was spent.


Land clearing isn't clear

OVER THE past few months I have been involved with the clearing of native vegetation on private land and have written letters explaining my views. 

On April 6 I attended a native vegetation clearing laws workshop run by the Moora Catchment Council. 



AFTER a long trip from the country, when we finally arrived in Toodyay township, I had to find a public convenience quite urgently. It was still daylight so we followed the signs to Piesse Street. 


Stone gives town colour

I’VE JUST reread Fred Fellowes’ whinge in last month’s Herald that the only sight greeting visitors to town is a grey-white stone wall and then suggests we get some dude in Wundowie to make some life size steel cut-outs of Moondyne Joe and plonk them on the approaches to town. 

How droll. 


Prices leave bad taste

WE HAVE recently had family from overseas staying with us and have been doing the rounds of food outlets in the hills.

This is what we found: The hills offer wonderful locations for dining but, for families, it is an expensive outing.
