Possie 42 a chance for change

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today - Steve Price steve. price@ townsville­bul­letin. com. au townsville­bul­letin. com. au

ALL I have to do is con­vince the other 41 to go on hol­i­days for one week­end, and that would make me the most pow­er­ful per­son in Townsville. Af­ter see­ing Mr Ed’s ar­ti­cle and pics of the 50 most pow­er­ful, and I’m 42 ( my age of course) this is my chance to make a real dif­fer­ence! So, let’s get Clive P, Laurie L and the rest to a bar­bie in Brissy. I’ll have more power than Er­gon, and let’s have a party . . . free wa­ter, con­nec­tion fee will be $ 5, and that’s for the plas­tic bucket. Vot­ing in the coun­cil will be easy, stand in front of the crowd at the bas­ket­ball, and we’ll see who re­ceives the loud­est ap­plause. We’ll plant trees for colour, and if they blow down in 100 years from now, we’ll plant more. Pooarama House will be­come a look­out, cof­fee shop, ten­nis court, opera house . . . ok, how about a cable car. I have to say I loved Panorama house over the years, but sadly it’s cer­tainly had it now. Sadly, this will be for only one week­end, then the real pow­er­ful peo­ple re­turn, and I’ll end up on the mulch pile. I’m not sure how the edi­tor re­searched the top 50, and came up with the re­sults, but I no­ticed his num­ber on my Mum’s phone on the Fri­day af­ter­noon be­fore – 5419 times.

Cy­clone what­sis­name blew out the lights in the bay and now the ships could get lost, luck­ily so far none have been found in a swim­ming pool in Con­don, but it is in­deed a prob­lem that must be ad­dressed. Hang on, that’s the prob, they have no ad­dress, it must be un­dressed then. So with the state’s bud­get, I be­lieve the an­swer to the chan­nel mark­ers will be the Port CEO Barry Holden sitting out there on a lilo with a hur­ri­cane lamp. G’day to the port work­ers on the re­claim at Ross River, the ac­tiv­ity is amaz­ing, if you strike oil or find At­lantis, let us know.

Last two home games of the bas­ket­ball, and this is our turn, we de­serve the cham­pi­onship. Great coach, great team and greater mas­cot, though he can be a worry. He growled at me to do the last two games, just for fun, so I will. He doesn’t ask, the Croc threat­ens, he’s eaten two tyres off my car, the next door neigh­bour’s dog is miss­ing and there’s a ter­ri­ble stain on my car­pet so I’ll see you Satur­day night. I won­der what he’s eaten that’s dis­agreed with him, have you seen the PM?

Psy­chic fest has been on at The Ho­tel Allen and I want to know, as there’s a TAB there, how many win­ners have been reg­is­tered?

Arts awards to­mor­row night at our Civic, al­ways a fan­tas­tic night and I’ll see you beach­comb­ing Satur­day Morn­ing along Rowes Bay, or af­ter be­ing Yasi­fied – Blows Bay – but be­cause I’m al­ways there, per­haps Nose Bay – an­other great week­end in Par­adise.

Happy Days ooroo
