IN recognition of the credit he (Kurt Fearnley) has brought to the City of Newcastle, maybe we could make a slight name change to his favoured training track, from The Fernleigh Track, to The Fearnley Track. I reckon it would be due recognition to Kurt Fearnley.
SHOULDN’T the billions being spent on Sydney's light-rail network be used for improving the rail line between Sydney and Newcastle to provide faster train services?
REGARDING the horses being killed at the Singleton Army Base (‘Ponies shot in aerial cull’, Newcastle Herald, 21/12): Very sad story, very sad for the horses.
JOHN Beach well said regarding the business case for the council’s move (Letters, 22/12), but please don't stop there with questions for our mayor and chief executive – there are a lot of questions that need answering.
GEE John Ure, regarding your letter about the government and economy (Letters, 24/12), as Oscar Wilde remarked, “I wish I'd said that!”. Still, as his companion and the speaker James Whistler answered, “You will, Oscar, you will!”. And I will John.
INCORRECT once again Mac Maguire (Short Takes, 24/12). As I've stated previously it's the minority that are the barnacles on the rear end of progress. Listen to imbeciles and inevitably you become one. Can you tell me the last time a drug stricken dole bludger contributed to society other than to leech the system. Singleton is screaming out for workers and has a very low unemployment rate. I don’t see the chronic dole bludgers lining up for work here and that is a fact. Have a happy new year, Mac.
TONY Padgett (Short Takes, 24/12), thanks for recognising my supreme intelligence. I can add up using pencil and paper. This is testament to the fact I am smarter than most scholars and teachers – even Stephen Hawking could not achieve this. So you are among the few that have recognised my brilliance. Stick with me brother, you'll be wearing diamonds
I WOULD like someone to tell me of the reasoning of this senseless act (‘Ponies shot in aerial cull’, Herald, 21/12). There was 100-plus horses living on thousands of acres on the Singleton army camp doing no harm. and they were culled out. I believe there are literally thousands of kangaroos living there doing more harm than the horses did. Yet there are thousands of disease-carrying fruit bats living on five acres within 100 metres of a primary school that are not allowed to be culled. Sure beats me.
