Park not part of mu­seum

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

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.
