Let’s Bend it

The Advertiser - - LETTERS -

DUR­ING the Su­per­cars season, there are three en­durance rounds that are part of the Pirtek se­ries – the Sandown 500, the Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600.

Why not ex­pand the en­durance se­ries to make it a four­round se­ries and have it at The Bend Mo­tors­port Park in South Aus­tralia?

The Bend at Tailem Bend is one of the world’s best per­ma­nent new mo­tor-rac­ing cir­cuits and it has world-class fa­cil­i­ties.

Maybe this event could be called the South Aus­tralia 500 and it could be a sis­ter race to the Sandown 500 held in late Au­gust.

With the co-op­er­a­tion of The Bend man­age­ment and the State Gov­ern­ment, why not try to get the South Aus­tralia 500 up and run­ning for 2019?

This would fur­ther add spice to the Su­per­cars’ cham­pi­onship and it would give the fans an­other an­nual en­durance round to look for­ward to an­nu­ally.

A South Aus­tralia 500 would get a higher TV au­di­ence as it would be shown live on free-to-air TV and it would be a great boost for the Tailem Bend econ­omy.

A South Aus­tralia 500 would be easy to im­ple­ment be­cause The Bend has the cir­cuit and the fa­cil­i­ties to cater for such an event. Let’s do it. MAL­COLM WEB­STER,

Boro­nia, Vic­to­ria ent games that chil­dren play on dig­i­tal me­dia.

I think the world has gone awry on eth­i­cal be­hav­iour, for we as young­sters were taught to re­spect our el­ders and all who work in au­thor­ity.

As I see it the grant­ing of free­doms prob­a­bly started in the 1970s where au­thor­ity was di­min­ished.

To put it sim­ply, who re­ally does have au­thor­ity now to dis­ci­pline and bring our chil­dren up with the ethos of love your neigh­bour as your­self? RON­ALD FROMM,

Wil­liamstown ing and politi­cians mak­ing per­sonal con­tact with elec­torates.

In that time, I can­not re­call any men­tion of pri­vatis­ing – and cer­tainly none in the area that is one of the Gov­ern­ment’s ma­jor re­spon­si­bil­i­ties – jus­tice, pun­ish­ment and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. You don’t fix prob­lems by push­ing them away. Time to re­think. B. MAY­FIELD, Cam­den Park crime to con­fess in the pri­vacy/ sanc­tity of the con­fes­sional where the priest can then coun­sel to go to the ap­pro­pri­ate au­thor­i­ties as that first step?

Or per­haps even of­fer to be a sup­port to the per­son out­side of the con­fes­sional as they go to the au­thor­i­ties?

In ad­di­tion, isn’t a con­fes­sion usu­ally made in anonymity? If so, how can a priest re­port when they don’t know who is in the con­fes­sional? DAWN TURN­BULL,
