Park not part of museum
TONIGHT I sit and weep for, and with, Jonathan Thurston. He is not only the greatest footy player I have ever seen in 60 years, he is one of the nicest, most humble men and a credit to his family, football, the youth of Australia and the Aboriginal people.
I have loved watching him play and screamed when they have won.
Jonathan you may not be able to play but this is definitely not the end. Enjoy retirement and the new avenues that open up to you.
We love you and THANK YOU for the many years of great footy. You truly are a legend. ROBYN AND ALL COWBOYS FANS,
Buderim. TOWNSVILLE Maritime Museum chairman Tony Manning ( TB June 30), seems to have trouble separating his museum with the adjacent park in Palmer St.
The park is actually Port of Townsville property and is used by the museum to host functions, with the permission of the port.
I have never made a complaint about the Maritime Museum itself. Nice place for a visit once in a while.
Mr Manning’s claim that I tried to close the museum down is laughable.
If he has any evidence to support this accusation, I suggest he produce it or apologise.
My complaints have only concerned functions held in the park across the road from my residence, and only when they have created excessive noise after the 11pm deadline imposed by law.
Here’s a suggestion, Mr Manning: you abide by the law and I’ll stop making complaints.
Pretty simple, really. DOUG KINGSTON, Townsville.
