Disappointed by vandalism
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
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.
