6hr park­ing at Yorkeys Boat Club with tow away signs up? What about re­spon­si­ble drink­ing and leav­ing your car there over night, and taxi home? Skip­per, Ke­warra Beach

When Hur­ri­cane Florence was a Cat 5, the US Democrats were busily blam­ing Pres­i­dent Trump for its fe­roc­ity. Florence even­tu­ally came ashore as a Cat 1, so shouldn’t Trump get the credit for calm­ing the storm? Bev Prescott, Ather­ton

Needles found in fur­ther straw­ber­ries so pls don’t buy straw­ber­ries & get them off the shelves cause they have got sewing needles in them, but I am fu­ri­ous about this. Janelle, Woree

A nine year old girl re­fuses to stand up for the na­tional an­them and the so­cial me­dia he­roes come down on her like a ton of bricks with Pauline, who else, lead­ing the bay­ing pack. I’m sur­prised no one has in­voked the An­zacs yet. Mean­while at an ex­clu­sive board­ing school three 12 year old boys are ex­pelled for grossly inap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour. No harsh com­ments from Pauline or the FB moralis­ers. Strange world we live in. Earl, Cairns

How come aged-care homes have a lot of in­ter­na­tional work­ers, work­ing in them. Tak­ing Aussie jobs? David the cab­bie, Woree

Re­ply to City Dweller (CP 15/9) Trinity In­let has been dredged for 130 years. I agree, the In­let is in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion. The port is busier than ever and so are our sci­en­tists and en­gi­neers be­cause in 2018 we de­liver worlds best prac­tice en­vi­ron­men­tal care in the port. City dweller you live in a city that is based around its port. You should be supporting jobs and growth in our city, not telling peo­ple to move on. Our port is a gift from our fore­bears. It is a gift that keeps on giv­ing if we look af­ter it and the en­vi­ron­ment. Sub­urb dweller, Cairns

The NRL would be lost with­out North Queens­land, Bris­bane, New­cas­tle, Mel­bourne, War­riors, Can­berra but too scared to say YES with their pa­thetic crowds from Syd­ney too many sides in Syd­ney have been for 15 years. Shane, Kan­im­bla

Sea-go­ing plas­tic does in­deed “break down and en­ter the food chain” (WP 15/9). That’s be­cause plas­tics are hy­dro­car­bons – a ba­sic foot­stock of life. Alarmists try to make that scary to fur­ther their own agenda. Mic, Cairns
