Consider the jobless
TO THE people objecting to developments, especially ones planned near a highway, can you stop and consider our jobless. Our region has the highest unemployment rate in Australia. Our children have to leave and move to Brisbane etc looking for jobs. What gives anyone the right to object to jobs being created in our environment. - ANNETTE BROOMHAM
Burnett Heads IT seems local canegrowers just can’t seem to catch a break.
After a record-breaking crush just two years ago, Isis Mill is now facing a low harvest this year.
Like the saying goes, it’s either feast or famine.
It’s not a huge surprise following the floods in 2013 and then the drought that followed.
Like anyone facing such constantly changing circumstances, I’m sure the canegrowers want to see things settle down and would welcome some consistency.
Canegrowers are still faced with climbing irrigation costs and no decent rainfall on the horizon.
It’s the sign of a strong person to keep going and not give up under such trying circumstances.
