Dis­ap­pointed by van­dal­ism

Myrtleford Times - - News -

AF­TER such a long wait for Myrtle­ford’s new round­about and the streetscape, (which is look­ing good so far, and work­ing well) it is so very dis­ap­point­ing to see that trees have al­ready been ripped out of the me­dian strip on the highway.

It is an ab­so­lute dis­grace that some in­di­vid­u­als feel they have noth­ing bet­ter to do.

If any­body knows who did this would you please report them to the au­thor­i­ties.

They should be do­ing com­mu­nity gar­den­ing ser­vice and/or pay­ing for the cost of re­plac­ing and re­plant­ing the trees. Gerry Green Myrtle­ford com­mu­nity of the com­plex­ity of what is needed to com­plete the project and is to be com­mended.

Per­haps VicRoads and the Alpine Shire will now fol­low the same pos­i­tive vibe and ad­dress the fact that, when ap­proach­ing the Har­ri­etville sec­tion from Bright, there is ab­so­lutely no sig­nage to in­form cy­clists of the ex­is­tence of the trail let alone ad­vice as to how to gain ac­cess to it.

This needs to be ur­gently ad­dressed as I re­call the main rea­son given for its con­struc­tion was to get cy­clists off the danger­ous sec­tion of the Great Alpine Road through Frosty Corner.

I shall await with in­ter­est to see what ac­tion is taken by th­ese bod­ies to ad­dress this needy sit­u­a­tion. Doug Humphries

Har­ri­etville

It is the day we re­mem­ber the Aus­tralians who served and died for our coun­try.

It was dur­ing this World War 1 cam­paign that the spirit of An­zac, with its qual­i­ties of courage, mate­ship and sac­ri­fice, was born.

As many peo­ple are aware I walked the Kokoda Track with my daugh­ter Danielle last year and we stood at the site in Kokoda where the Aussie dig­gers met the Ja­panese sol­diers 75 years to the ex­act day.

I en­cour­age all fam­i­lies to spare a mo­ment to­day and hon­our our dig­gers. Lest we for­get.
