The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

Idris Elba is a bit of a hunk, but I still think our homegrown Chris Hemsworth is the sex­i­est man alive. Beth, Kan­im­bla Wa­ter re­stric­tions ... hm­mmm. Then why is it that the new $4.5 mil­lion po­lice sta­tion at Gor­don­vale has its sprin­klers go­ing in the mid­dle of the day in the heat ev­ery day? Who po­lices this? Stan­ley, Gor­don­vale Se­ri­ously Coles Clifton Beach. Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions up al­ready. A re­minder to you that it is Novem­ber and not De­cem­ber. Come on. Sort it out. Alice, Palm Cove If Mr Healy is so con­cerned about our mis­guided youth, why not cre­ate them jobs. I see no rea­son for them to not live in a tent, and du­pli­cate our third world, sin­gle rail­way line, be­tween Cairns and Townsville like our fore­fa­thers did. I sup­pose fast trains in Bris­bane, casi­nos or stupid Bun­nings Star Wars movie stu­dios, are more im­por­tant than our mis­guided youth. Rex, Ed­mon­ton Three cheers for Jor­dan Beard, win­ner of Mel­bourne Cup fash­ions. Races are all about lovely out­fits and hats, hats, hats, not space junk or head­bands out of the kids’ toy box. Cairns ladies’ fash­ions are up there with the best, if not ex­celling. San­dra, Mt Sheri­dan Thanks Paddy for your com­ment. Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil should not be de­vel­op­ing this de­clared nat­u­ral fish habi­tat with a bridge. Noth­ing wrong with a bridge but this coast is pro­tected from devel­op­ment by law. No di­nosaurs, just con­cerned res­i­dents. Dave, Hol­loways Beach North es­capes worst of heat­wave. But I’m sweat­ing away for sun safety. So slip on a shirt, slap on a hat, slop on some sun­screen and drink plenty of wa­ter be­cause of the heat. Janelle, Woree On the Townsville Cowboys not play­ing a trial in Cairns in 2019. I think it’s a dis­grace. I don’t mind them go­ing to Mackay but they should be com­ing here as well. Hon­estly the CDRL should con­sider bring­ing the West Tigers back or even some­body like Gold Coast up for a game in­stead. Of­fer them a 3 day trip all ex­penses paid to en­tice them. That way the Cairns com­mu­nity still gets a game. Scot­tie, Bayview Heights Crocs at beaches, on golf cour­ses, in rivers, in creek swim­ming holes, in res­i­den­tial pools - clearly not an en­dan­gered species any­more. It’s time to sell crochunt­ing per­mits. Gree­nies can stand in the swamps to block hunters, as they do with ducks. Nat­u­ral se­lec­tion can then pre­vail. Ptero­dactyl Trev, Cairns
