Re­sponse to text by Granny 4812 The $ 2.9 bil­lion RNA Show­grounds Re­gen­er­a­tion Pro­ject is not be­ing funded by any gov­ern­ment grant of any kind. It is be­ing funded by the RNA’s de­vel­op­ment part­ner Lend Lease and through a $ 65 mil­lion loan, which the RNA is pay­ing back like any nor­mal busi­ness prac­tice. The re­gen­er­a­tion of the RNA Show­grounds is the re­sult of seven years of plan­ning to en­sure the Ekka’s his­tory, tra­di­tions and unique at­mos­phere will be pre­served by up­grad­ing and re­plac­ing venues to pro­vide state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties. Veron­ica Carew RNA Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager, Bris­bane The ACCC is a joke. Un­der Alan Fels, busi­ness was too scared to push bound­aries, but now they r do­ing as they please. Coles & Woolies milk ex­ploits are a bla­tant breach of the act. Grow some balls ACCC & pro­tect the lit­tle guys. John kir­wan

IGA milk = Farm­ers in jobs. Du­op­oly milk = short term gain, long term pain. Think be­fore u drink. J4817 In re­gards to the 193 fines, I live ba­si­cally next to the Cow­boys sta­dium and my­self and reg­u­lar vis­i­tors al­ways park on the road and have never been fined and we see po­lice pa­trol golflinks dr on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Ob­vi­ously rev­enue rais­ing. D Brit­ton. Kir­wan To the Met Bu­reau. All year, as part of the global warm­ing alarmism that you guys have been well and truly com­plicit in, you’ve warned us of a cy­clone sea­son of 7 or 8 cy­clones. To date, aside from Yasi and that one which just made cy­clone sta­tus up North, there’s been any­thing BUT such a sea­son. Yet an­other pre­dic­tion down the gur­gler with so many oth­ers. And now we’re told the sea­son is over. Nor­mally it goes to May. ‘‘ De­nier", Pim­lico Tony Tsim­bas thank you for your re­ply to Norm’s letter Ive been want­ing some­one to an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tions that Ive been try­ing to get an­swered for months . What is the % of car­bon that man puts into the at­mos­phere from burn­ing fos­sil fu­els % not tons. Then what is Aus­tralia’s % of that. Then what are they say­ing it will be af­ter we get the car­bon tax? We all know from past ex­pe­ri­ence that most of the money will be used up in bu­reau­cracy but it would still be nice to know the facts about the % of car­bon. On the fence through lack of hard facts 4811 To Jay & Crazi re Ian Bragg: far as I could tell, all he did was de­nounce war mo­ti­vated by greed, & the killing of civil­ians by evil men. Not sure why you would have such a prob­lem with that? Well said Ian. Hon­key When you see all these so called di­ets and ex­er­cise ma­chines that make you lose heaps of weight on TV how come none of these have all the left over skin that hangs down? Look at real peo­ple that have lost weight and there is lots of loose skin. Lots of funny mir­rors used I think mc How does the cab fare work? I call and book a cab I get charged just over two dol­lars. I hop into an un­booked cab at Stock­lands and I still get charged that two dol­lars. I don’t un­der­stand I re­ally think camp­bell new­man will b our premier if he takes day­light sav­ing off the ta­ble. We don’t want or need it. Rose wul­guru Thanks to the two peo­ple who helped push my son’s bro­ken down car at the hos­pi­tal on Mon­day af­ter­noon much ap­pre­ci­ated = grate­ful 4817 Brave po­lice hunt­ing down kids on mini bikes & call­ing for back up to write out park­ing tick­ets?
