THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

I WAS check­ing the surf at Dig­gers and no­ticed a man strug­gling in a strong rip at the north end of the beach. He started to raise his hand in dis­tress and be­gan to go un­der the wa­ter. As I was fully clothed I ran down to the wa­ter’s edge, un­sure of what to do and saw hardly any­one on the beach ex­cept for a guy with a metal de­tec­tor. He sprang into ac­tion, jump­ing into the wa­ter to save him. I want to give a shout to that awe­some Aussie bloke for sav­ing a man’s life. Maddey Leigh TO those re­spon­si­ble for forc­ing peo­ple to pay to park at any hospi­tal. I re­cently had to use the boom gate pay ma­chine at Coffs Har­bour Cam­pus on a dark, rainy night and found it ex­tremely dif­fi­cult and frus­trat­ing. The instructions can­not be read un­der poor con­di­tions and my ticket be­came sat­u­rated, as did my arm and car in­te­rior. Having to pay to visit the sick or dy­ing is bad enough, but not pro­vid­ing de­cent cover over the money ma­chine is not on. John Thomson
