COM­MON SENSE PRE­VAILS

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - Trevor Brewer R Young

Congratulations to the power that be, for us­ing com­mon cense for stop­ping the swim­ming in the Blue Springs. There are lots of other rivers and lakes around here for peo­ple to swim in!

We need to all join to­gether and keep the Blue Springs pris­tine for our grand­chil­dren, great grand­chil­dren and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, as good drink­ing wa­ter will be­come scarce in the fu­ture. We don’t need an­other pol­luted river or town wa­ter sup­ply. The Blue Springs isn’t ‘‘just’’ a swim­ming hole and never should be one again.

Tourists should be charged a gold coin and be con­trolled to stay on the Te Wai­hou Walk­way. Na­tive shrubs should be planted on both banks the en­tire length of the Te Wai­hou river. More true and ac­cu­rate fig­ure is 31% as an el­i­gi­ble voter must be of 18 years old and en­rolled to vote.

How many 14-17 years old at last elec­tion have not re­sponded to Mayor Sin­clair’s pro­gram to en­rol on the elec­toral roll? 700 peo­ple net have left the dis­trict within the five year cen­sus pe­riod.

Re­tired Auck­land peo­ple are wel­comed to buy a house in SW leav­ing pre­dom­i­nantly young peo­ple ex­it­ing and re­duc­ing school rolls.

Ex­ple­tives in so­cial me­dia are un­der­stand­able. A wreck­ing ball flies the coun­cil colours as it tears down the walls of Love Soup Kitchen. Mayor then fol­lows (SWN p10) ‘‘Much of what is said on so­cial me­dia es­pe­cially is not true or ac­cu­rate.’’

The build­ing lays de­stroyed, with only an I-beam de­nuded on the ground left, and the truth of the mat­ter is you would pro­tect our in­ter­ests. The So­cial me­dia com­mu­nity is thus telling the Em­peror to put on his cloths and stop mud­dy­ing the Blue Springs of truth he sup­pos­edly swims in
