Hos­pi­tal staff to res­cue

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

Pity the poor drongo who holds out to the end hav­ing their so­lar in­stalled, they’ll be pay­ing for the en­tire grid main­te­nance.

So, ev­ery time an­other house­hold goes so­lar to the grid sys­tem the non-so­lar users have to make up for the so­lar pro­duc­ers’ free power. Con­fused? I am, but my thoughts are that our politi­cians and bril­liant bu­reau­crats are men­tally un­der­pow­ered, or are they run­ning on so­lar at night? for their as­sis­tance in set­ting up, Ryan for his trum­pet en­sem­ble on the morn­ing and all oth­ers who ei­ther do­nated prizes or helped out on the day. I RE­CENTLY spent a week in the Moss­man hos­pi­tal af­ter a ma­jor health scare.

Wow, the nurses and staff at the hos­pi­tal couldn’t do enough for me with all the look­ing af­ter they did for me in my time of need.

So a very big thank you from the bot­tom of my heart for look­ing af­ter me and get­ting me back on my feet.

The nurses are just so friendly and help­ful and to me don’t get paid enough for what they do for peo­ple, they treat ev­ery per­son with re­spect and al­ways with a smile on the face, which cheers up the pa­tients as well.

If I ever get sick again the Moss­man Hos­pi­tal is one place I want to be to get fixed and healthy.

Also a big thank you to the am­bu­lance of­fi­cers who trans­ported me, kept me calm and re­laxed with my health prob­lems, and were quick to get here once I called them.

Con­grat­u­la­tion on a job well done. - there is no drainage into the sea.

Peo­ple will cope with the UV rays same as al­ways, “slip, slop, and slap”, and it’s not so far that peo­ple can’t walk there from their ac­com­mo­da­tion, ride a bike, or catch a bus.

And so it goes on - no mat­ter how at­trac­tive a scheme is, there will al­ways be a vo­cal group of op­po­si­tion, un­til it’s all fin­ished.

Af­ter that, the blink­ers are re­moved, and ev­ery­one can en­joy what will be a won­der­ful com­mu­nity as­set.

In Septem­ber 2009 the mas­ter plan was fi­nalised and ap­proved ready for im­ple­ment­ing and the pro­ject ad­vi­sory group was dis­banded.

Fol­low­ing this, eight com­mu­nity ad­vi­sory rep­re­sen­ta­tives were se­lected from this group by coun­cil to act as a con­duit be­tween coun­cil and the com­mu­nity to dis­sem­i­nate all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion and pro­vide feed­back to the coun­cil.

You can be as­sured that not one of us is mis­in­formed re­gard­ing any mat­ter on our wa­ter­fronts.

This cur­rent dis­pute over the lo­ca­tion of the la­goon was brought about when coun­cil, only eight weeks ago, de­cided upon a lo­ca­tion not even put for­ward or dis­cussed in the mas­ter plan process and not in­cluded in the plan.

This lo­ca­tion de­ci­sion ef­fec­tively changes the en­tire dy­namic of what was metic­u­lously planned and ap­proved for our water­front.

Seven of the eight com­mu­nity Rep­re­sen­ta­tives do not ap­prove of this lo­ca­tion along with the ma­jor­ity of the 26 or­gan­i­sa­tions who worked on the mas­ter plan.

This coun­cil has cat­e­gor­i­cally re­jected any sub­mis­sion by any­one what­so­ever to change its de­ci­sion.

Their pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion pro­gram they are legally obliged to carry out is just a front pushed through in their race to gain fed­eral fund­ing.

Al­though the coun­cil may not ap­prove of me I have not re­signed from the com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tive com­mit­tee.
