Engage with community
The old Yarragon Primary School site remains vacant, unused but of immense interest to the Yarragon community.
The site is close to the town centre and is seen as valuable for future community use, rather than for private developer gain which would be the outcome of the proposed sale of the site.
We’ve heard very supportive words from most of our local politicians including Gary Blackwood and Harriet Shing, but what we really need is for the Planning Minister Richard Wynne, to put a stop to the fast track sale process which will give our community time to complete a township strategy plan that will include our wishes for the old school site.
We also need a commitment from the local council to buy the land and to engage with us in the strategic planning process.
Malcolm McKelvie, Yarragon out the mantra of equality.
Do they know what they are really chasing and why? By the way, I love my grandchildren. SSM will not produce biological grandchildren, how discriminatory, no equality there.
I have reviewed the last month or so of letters in the Gazette and have not seen one reasoned argument from the ‘yes’ supporters.
What about bringing to the table some substance in the debate.
On the other hand, on August 29 I read some solid reasoned arguments for the ‘no’ case from Helen Neumann and Janet Cowden.
Forget about dressing mailboxes and rainbows. So the majority of Australians are in support of SSM – really! Why should I be one of them and vote yes?
We can learn much from kids’ books. At the end of the story the chase reverses and Bertie chases the bear – most confusing.
It’s a telling kids’ tale, highlighting the need for reason in this serious issue for our nation.
