New mayor? Theres an old saying, if it aint broke, dont change it. Give Hill another term and let her pay off more of Townsville firsts debt. Its not costing us much, our rates have only had a tiny increase compared to the Townsville First fiasco. Kranky Kev . Mt Low.
A great big thank you to the fantastic police officers at the concert at Jezzine that helped our nearly 90 year old mum. A wonderful concert and a lovely way to finish the evening. Alison Sth. Townsville

Yes Tezza climate change has been happening forever, but those changes happen over thousands of years, not over a couple of decades like what is happening now. And thank you for educating us that climate change was “just invented by greenies”. here was I thinking it was from the data and research from thousands of scientists worldwide, silly me. And Gary J, yes it’s “only a weather event” but those weather events are now happening more often, affecting larger areas, and lasting for longer when they do. Nice try both of you but no cigar. Thanks for playing, better luck next time. Physics Phreak avale
Whitty climate change is not an “unproven theory”. Ever heard of the IPCC report to the UN which summarised the findings of thousands of scientists. The result - 97% consensus. Hardly “unproven.” Now I don’t know about you but if 97% of engineers warned you a bridge was going to fall down or if 97% of bankers were warning you were going bankrupt, I’d be paying attention. Here’s the thing with advising other texters to “eat humble pie” mate, you can end up choking on it yourself. Siesta avale
Mark Molachino’s letter about Bronwyn Bishop is unfair. He fails to mention that she hired the helicopter off a mate so she was certainly helping to stimulate the economy of his company with taxpayer funds. Dave, Bushybeach
Why is it always the fault of somebody else. Why can’t the boaties throw their bags of rubbish in the back of the ute and take it home. How hard is that? IAH 4814
Ewen Jones must be taking the piss out of us - again. Complaining about the State gov not helping out with a new stadiums when he is too embarrassed to go into bat for us. We will take the funding for a new stadium from anyone Ewen. Sailar
Tennis.T We’ve had our share of spoilt brats &, not surprisingly, they are not true blue Aussies. I’m so disappointed that the world stage has to see the antics of these “stars” of tennis. If they continue to behave in the manner they think is acceptable, they should have any support withdrawn. Previous championsc have not had to stoop to gutter tactics and excuses for losing their matches. Just look at Pat Rafter & his success. Nick & his entourage are pathetic. I love my tennis but drawd the line at watching someone whow obviously thinks the world is in awe of him & should be grateful to watch his tantrums & bad sportsmanship. Rod 4810
I wonder who paid for Henry’s little girl and Kate Jones to fly to Townsville and swan around at the V8s? Oh I see, you labor faithful would say they were here on Govt business, sounds fair to me! Ron Kelso.
Prince Phillip ( Mr Queen) wants to know “who do you sponge off? I’d like to ask ‘ Phil the Greek’ the same question. TINKER. 4816.
Chris eastaughffe ( 16/ 7). Financial wizards do not have empires; they do not even come in pairs. Yes, the governments are inept. But they don’t make decisions anymore; global financial markets do. Just be careful that those feet on the ground aren’t stuck in the mud. Dr m. 4817.
Is Mark Molachino a clone of Shaun Newman? They both know entitlements are flogged to death by both sides of politics but only ever view it as conservative crime. I was critical of Bron Bishop in sat TTE calling on Ewen Jones to address the issue in parliament as no opposition member ever has. WW C/ jong.
