DREAMS COSTLY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE Amend­ment 46 draft re­port will be dis­cussed by coun­cil next week. Let us hope de­vel­op­ers’ greed for un­lim­ited profit does not pre­vail over com­mu­nity ben­e­fit and what the lo­cal in­fra­struc­ture can cope with.

With­out the De­vel­oper Con­tri­bu­tion Scheme ever be­ing im­ple­mented in South Perth, de­vel­op­ers have not had to pay one cent to­ward in­fra­struc­ture costs caused by the in­flux of peo­ple and traf­fic.

We do not want to be sub­si­dis­ing de­vel­op­ers’ prof­its when our rates have to be in­creased to pay for the chaos their dreams will cost us.

Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion will be great for South Perth; how­ever, let us just do it with a bit of con­trol and com­mon sense. VICKI RED­DEN, South Perth. just loud enough for the dog to hear.

Leave the ra­dio on 24 hours a day whether there is some­one home or not.

Very soon, the dog gets used to the ra­dio sound and will not get ner­vous and hence not bark. FRANK GRANGER, Ap­ple­cross. are di­ag­nosed with a blood can­cer or a re­lated blood dis­or­der. As the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion re­ceives no on­go­ing gov­ern­ment fund­ing, the sup­port of the com­mu­nity will help meet the in­creas­ing de­mand for our ser­vices.

Each year the Foun­da­tion sup­ports thou­sands of peo­ple and their fam­i­lies by pro­vid­ing prac­ti­cal ser­vices at no cost.

These ser­vices in­clude in­for­ma­tion, prac­ti­cal as­sis­tance, emo­tional sup­port, trans­port and ac­com­mo­da­tion for re­gional fam­i­lies who are re­quired to re­lo­cate closer to metropoli­tan treat­ment cen­tres.

We also in­vest mil­lions of dol­lars each year into vi­tal re­search to im­prove treat­ments.

Thanks to all our sup­port­ers, we raised more than $1.66 mil­lion in WA and need the WA com­mu­nity to dig deep so that we can reach our fundrais­ing tar­get of $2.4 mil­lion.

There is still time to sign up or make a do­na­tion at www.worlds­great­est­shave.com.

On be­half of all the WA fam­i­lies who will re­ceive sup­port through one of the hard­est times in their lives, thank you for sup­port­ing the World's Great­est Shave. AN­DREW YORK, gen­eral man­ager WA, Leukaemia Foun­da­tion.
