Neil and Mavis made a splash

OUR heart­felt thanks go to Neil and Mavis Grum­mitt for their sig­nif­i­cant do­na­tion to the Ky­val­ley Swim­ming Club to help us in light of the re­cent theft from the Ky­val­ley Park­grounds.

It was a won­der­ful ges­ture, a big sur­prise and is very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Every­one had a won­der­ful time at our Morn­ing Melodies last week.

Kim and An­nette were booked but An­nette has re­cently been ill, and was un­der­stand­ably un­able to fly/at­tend. Kim came over from New Zealand and en­ter­tained the crowd gath­ered at the Ky­val­ley Hall; from the first song, every­one was singing along and tap­ping their feet. The usual de­li­cious, home­made morn­ing tea pro­vided by the Ky­val­ley ladies was en­joyed by all. Pro­ceeds from this event will go to­wards the on­go­ing up­keep of the Ky­val­ley Swim­ming Pool.

Thank you to all that came along and sup­ported us. Ker­ran Keats, who pro­vided the sound sys­tem for Kim dur­ing the Morn­ing Melodies, is ar­rang­ing a spe­cial Sun­day af­ter­noon con­cert, on Sun­day, Septem­ber 23 in aid of the Ky­val­ley Pool. Fur­ther de­tails of the en­ter­tain­ers in­volved will be an­nounced soon.

On Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 14 at 1.30pm, we have another great af­ter­noon planned with Shane and the Wong Brother who will present ’60s, ’70s and ’80s mu­sic. Both up­com­ing con­certs will pro­vide a high stan­dard of en­ter­tain­ment and an en­joy­able af­ter­noon for all. We have had a lot of in­ter­est. Early book­ings are be­ing taken now. Call Beryl on 0408 137 635 or Bev on 0417 360 687. As al­ways, a de­li­cious af­ter­noon tea will be pro­vided. Be great to see you at Ky­val­ley. The Ky­val­ley Pool Com­mit­tee, Ky­val­ley.

Don­ald trumps our cur­rent lot

LAU­RIE Win­tle’s let­ter on Au­gust 1 hit the nail on the head — Trump has trumped them all.

Trump re­minds me of Bob Men­zies, Queens­land pre­mier Joh Bjelke-Petersen and Bolte. Aus­tralia was a bet­ter place with these men in of­fice.

With the world in such a mess due to na­tions against na­tions, I be­lieve it’s time na­tional ser­vice should be re-in­tro­duced in Aus­tralia. J M Studd, Kyabram.

Lead­ers can do only so much

THERE is an old say­ing that ev­ery new broom sweeps well. But the catch is how long it re­tains its sweep­ing abil­ity.

When a new gov­ern­ment is sworn in, the sup­port­ers are ju­bi­lant. They be­lieve that all their trou­bles are over.

But life is not meant to be easy. No gov­ern­ment can per­form mir­a­cles.

When the harsh re­al­ity sinks in, some of the sup­port­ers may be­come dis­il­lu­sioned and feel that they have been be­trayed. There is al­ways a per­cent­age of swing­ing vot­ers, that can make or break the gov­ern­ment. Jiri Kole­naty, Rush­worth.
