■ Hardly a day/week goes buy with­out the sound of chain­saws and mulching ma­chines de­stroy­ing a huge num­ber of per­fectly healthy trees in our area of My Lofty, mag­nif­i­cent tall and healthy trees which surely should have been pro­tected are be­ing felled daily. Thank good­ness the Boyce Gar­dens re­main so that we can show our grand­chil­dren some trees of yes­ter­year.

■ One of the four re­quire­ments to be Catholic is to ac­cept all teach­ings for Catholics. Please don’t claim to be Catholic and to be vot­ing yes to gay mar­riage. You can’t have it both ways. You do have free will but ex­er­cise it ju­di­ciously.

■ Do your home­work “be­fore” you vote. Google “what has hap­pened in Mas­sachusetts since same-sex- mar­riage was le­galised?”— GH, Gat­ton

■ All change has con­se­quences. So­cial en­gi­neer­ing and loss of demo­cratic right to free speech one step closer to dic­ta­tor­ship with si­lenc­ing of ques­tion­ing or dis­sent.

■ “The Way We Were” 5/9 pic­tures an un­named white build­ing be­tween the Me­mo­rial Hall and the Town Hall. It was the former Com­mon­wealth Health Lab­o­ra­tory 54 3 Ruthven St. Be­fore this photo was taken, a re­turned sol­dier Mr Lang and his wife con­ducted a news­pa­per and mag­a­zine kiosk on the foot­path be­tween the Me­mo­rial Hall and the CHL. It was a hexag­o­nal wooden stand with push-out shades above the coun­ters, which were shut overnight. In those days, the buses lined up in Her­ries St out­side the Me­mo­rial Hall, and the peo­ple catch­ing them home, were reg­u­lar cus­tomers of the kiosk.
