The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS OPINION -

TO THE amaz­ing ef­forts of the Coffs Har­bour State Emer­gency Ser­vice vol­un­teers who re­sponded to some 60 call-outs dur­ing the tor­ren­tial rain event this week. Un­paid, to­tally vol­un­tary but oh so im­por­tant and es­sen­tial.

TO THE peo­ple who per­sist on driv­ing through flood­wa­ter de­spite the warn­ings, in­clud­ing the front page of last Satur­day’s pa­per. We saw one car float away off Hog­bin Dr. Peo­ple, let that serve as a les­son. If you are in a sedan or smaller ve­hi­cle you just shouldn’t do it.

TO THE weekly lo­cal cause of peo­ple try­ing to make a state­ment for at­ten­tion. Protest­ing against well-cared-for an­i­mals brought to a town for the en­joy­ment of adults and chil­dren alike.

TO THE Busways bus driver who safely es­corted an el­derly lady across Com­bine St on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. What a gen­tle­man.

TO THE nurses and staff at Coffs Base sur­gi­cal ward. Care and at­ten­tion be­yond their du­ties and just nice peo­ple as well. Thank you.

TO COFFS Har­bour lo­cal busi­nesses turn­ing down ex­cel­lent ap­pli­cants without any ex­pla­na­tion as to why. Does Coffs ac­tu­ally want to grow as an econ­omy?

TO THE teeny-weeny mir­ror in Gale St, Co­ramba, op­po­site Dor­rigo St, which is too small to see on­com­ing traf­fic around the bend and im­pos­si­ble to see early morn­ing or late evening. Ap­palling and dan­ger­ous.

TO COFFS Har­bour for hav­ing awe­some camp­ing spots.

TO ALL the res­i­dents in Platts Cl who work all day and their dogs bark all day.

To have your say and join the dis­cus­sion watch out for our Thumbs Up post on the Ad­vo­cate Face­book wall this week­end.
