Talk of the town from our so­cial me­dia

Ayrshire Post - - AYR NORTH -

Plans to fly the LGBT flag above the home of South Ayr­shire Coun­cil sparked de­bate.

Ken Michael Bates said: “It hap­pens al­ready else­where; I’m sur­prised this isn’t the norm al­ready.”

But San­dra Taylor said: “Is this what they get paid to do. Sit about and have some­one come up with... let’s fly a pride flag... se­ri­ously.”

And Jim McGarvie quipped: “As long as the Coun­cil don’t need to make it be­cause they don’t al­low to print in colour...”

Trib­utes poured in af­ter we told of a touch­ing trib­ute to de­liv­ery man Scott Kennedy, who was killed by a sui­cide driver.

Laura Aitken said: “I’m so so sad to read this. I never knew it was Scott who was trag­i­cally killed. He was my man­ager in JD Sports years ago and such a lovely lovely man. A bril­liant man­ager and gen­uine car­ing per­son.”

Lil­ian McCutcheon said: “I see them ev­ery day and my heart breaks for them. Noth­ing will ever re­place what they have lost. Scott was one in a mil­lion.”

Lois White­side added: “So so sad, all my love to Pat and Cof­fee, got to know them all when I worked in Ayr, Scott was man­ager at the sport shop then, was gut­ted when I heard it was him.”

And Au­drey Gra­ham added: “Heart breaks ev­ery­time I see Toby at school.

“Scott was such a lovely guy, I went through sec­ondary school with him and you al­ways got him the same way. Well done Mandy Mills and staff at Asda Ayr.”

Break­ing news of the bomb squad rac­ing to Ayr beach was a big talk­ing point this week.

Craig Mur­ray said: “More crap wash­ing in from Beau­fort’s Dyke. That’s what hap­pens when you dump old am­mu­ni­tion in the sea.”

Brian Cas­sells Jnr said: “I was there when it hap­pened. My dog was ter­ri­fied, it was scary.”

Jon Seed added: “There’s lots of or­di­nance out there, not just from the dyke. A sunken air­craft car­rier off Ar­drossan and plenty other mil­i­tary wrecks about.”

And road­works on the busy Whitletts Road an­gered some of our read­ers.

Fiona Gal­lagher said: “Why don’t the util­ity companies all get to­gether and dig the roads up once in­stead of con­stantly?”

And Karen Mul­doon said: “Not to men­tion the three- way temp lights at Dun­lop Ter­race caus­ing de­lays for those go­ing the other way to avoid Whit­tlets Road.”
