She stole a $1 bag of chips and got fired

STAFF mem­ber I worked with in Bris­bane was sacked for steal­ing tea bags. An­other place sacked an em­ployee for steal­ing over­time, clocked on af­ter­noon shift and went home. Also had him charged with fraud – Peter Mcleod

THERE has to be much more to this story. I’m tip­ping the em­ployer and em­ployee have a colour­ful his­tory. I’m tip­ping they used the bag of chips as the fi­nal straw and were look­ing for any ex­cuse to sack her – Syd­ney Milko

YET em­ploy­ees at the big banks who com­mit­ted fraud, steal­ing etc aren’t be­ing charged – there is no just in our jus­tice sys­tem – Toni Hawkins Limo com­pany says car ‘not at fault’

THE ve­hi­cle failed a safety test a week prior, three other ve­hi­cles also failed. The owner of the com­pany knew of the prob­lems – Mick Gar­diner

UN­LESS the brakes were faulty, it is the driver’s fault. He ran a stop sign and lost con­trol of the car. Plainly speed­ing and pos­si­bly dis­tracted and what a price they all paid, in­clud­ing the two by­standers – Jo Cooper It’s not a by­pass, it’s a ring road

YES, it is a ring road. Coffs com­mu­nity must unite to protest against this pro­posal – Waz­zan

SUP­PORT Ms Strodl’s com­ments all but one. In terms of res­i­dent amenity, the so­lu­tion needs to con­sider all ar­eas of the Coffs Har­bour LGA surely, not just those lo­cated on the out­skirts of the CBD? Not to men­tion, of course, en­vi­ron­men­tal and wildlife con­cerns, those two dirty words in to­day’s bu­reau­cratic world. So it doesn’t need to just be put “some­where else” in a NIMBY re­sponse, it needs a lot more thought – JENNYB66

SAY NO: Sue Strodl says hav­ing a high­way run­ning through the val­ley with the as­so­ci­ated noise, pol­lu­tion and vis­ual im­pacts would be a dis­as­ter.
