Letter head­line mis­lead­ing

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times | News -

I RE­CENTLY wrote a letter re­gard­ing Pem­ber­ton’s nom­i­na­tion in the 2017 GWN Top Tourism Award.

In my letter, pub­lished in the Man­jimup-Bridgetown Times

on Septem­ber 6 ti­tled Town could be ti­dier, I voiced my con­cerns re­gard­ing the amount of rub­bish that lit­tered the road­sides lead­ing into Pem­ber­ton and made ref­er­ence that I was hope­ful the award does not take into ac­count this is­sue.

The head­ing that ac­com­pa­nied my letter was quite mis­lead­ing and did not cap­ture the point I was mak­ing.

At no stage did I state that the town­ship of Pem­ber­ton “could be ti­dier”, I was sim­ply point­ing out the amount of lit­ter that is on show along all the roads lead­ing into this beau­ti­ful part of the State.

The es­ca­la­tion of lit­ter con­tin­ues to blight the won­der­ful land­scape of the mag­nif­i­cent karri coun­try we are for­tu­nate to have in the re­gion.

I be­lieve the head­line has taken my ob­ser­va­tion out of context and feel the Pem­ber­ton town­ship has been un­fairly treated with a poorly con­structed head­line that in­fers an ac­cu­sa­tion that Pem­ber­ton is un­tidy. Nikki Dug­gan, Pem­ber­ton
