Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

AGAIN, the res­i­dents of South Perth and sur­rounds were sub­jected to an as­sault on our ears as fire­works ex­ploded in South Perth at 8.15pm on Thurs­day, April 14.

No no­tice was ad­ver­tised to warn us of this event in our lo­cal news­pa­per and as al­ways the first ex­plo­sion had us jump­ing out of our skins.

Not only does it cause fear to most do­mes­ti­cated an­i­mals, but it also must do so as well to the fauna liv­ing nearby in the river wet­lands.

Res­i­dents, if this reg­u­lar noise causes you dis­tress, please com­plain to your lo­cal coun­cil­lors and make your feel­ings known.

In ad­di­tion, I am more than cer­tain if a deci­bel ma­chine were to mea­sure the per­cus­sion from most of the ex­plo­sions it would reg­is­ter well over the ac­cept­able “'limit”.

We have no re­course once these ex­plo­sions be­gin and have to “wait it out” un­for­tu­nately. SU­SAN KELLY, South Perth. the fol­low­ing Mon­day. Are the Ea­gles and Dock­ers try­ing to make their sup­port­ers fat?

It is time for WA foot­ball to think se­ri­ously about the mes­sages that these spon­sor­ship agree­ments send our chil­dren and stop the advertising of junk food at the game. LIZ BRADSHAW, Vic­to­ria Park.
