Pic­nic ta­ble do­na­tions

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THE me­dian strip in Nautilus Street is now bloom­ing, which has only been achieved by the do­na­tion of plants and the great sup­port from the lo­cal Coun­cil team. When did you last visit it? My re­quest now is to ask any­one who can do­nate any pic­nic tables and gar­den seats to con­sider giv­ing them so that lo­cals and tourists alike can sit and en­joy the “icon“we have cre­ated.

In fact, Phil from Four Mile has al­ready do­nated a pic­nic ta­ble and wood with sup­port­ing blocks for seat­ing, and for this we are ex­tremely grate­ful.

We live in a paradise. at her re­cent party.There was no mor­ti­fied apol­ogy to her neigh­bours for ru­in­ing their sleep and im­ping­ing upon their right to quiet en­joy­ment of their prop­er­ties. No ac­knowl­edge­ment that some peo­ple work long hours with early starts and may ac­tu­ally need more than a cou­ple of hours sleep to func­tion the next day. Just the right­eous in­dig­na­tion of some­one who thinks con­sid­er­a­tion of other peo­ple should not im­pede upon “a mo­ment of cel­e­bra­tion that can never be re­placed”.

By her own ad­mis­sion she her­self “can­not count the num­ber of . . . nights” in which she has suf­fered the same in­con­ve­nience of “doof-doof” mu­sic.

Yet by her logic, she should be able to do the same. Suf­fice to say, this level of blind­ing self­ish­ness does not make for a happy life in the sub­urbs.

No­body en­joys ring­ing the po­lice to try and get some sleep. Good on the po­lice for do­ing some­thing about it.
