In 1980 a whale stranded itself on rocks at Tuross Head.
After attempts to tow it out to sea failed, the council arranged for the whale to be buried on rocks near where it had been stranded.
Apart from a sign being erected, little has been done to the burial site in the intervening years.
Recently, what appears to be two bones from the whale’s skeleton have appeared at the site.
The site has been undermined by rough seas.
It seems these two bones have been washed up or brought up from the rocks below.
As a ratepayer and regular Tuross Head resident, I request that Eurobodalla Shire Council urgently carry out work at the site to rebury the bones and prevent further undermining of the site.
As one who witnessed the whale’s trauma when it was stranded, the least we can do is let it rest in peace.
I read your story on the Corrigans Cove Playground (Bay Post/Moruya Examiner, December 28) and could not believe Trish Hellier was taken seriously.
"Wet sand can breed bacteria" is true but "concerned citizens breed bacteria is also very true".
That cats look for sand for a toilet is not a proven scientific fact and bird droppings will be found on all things out in the open.
Little kids will put their hands in and on things and then in their mouth; this is how they get to know what is good and what is not, it also allows them to build up the right bacteria levels in their body to deal with the bad ones.
Needle-stick injuries can and do happen in lots of places, however the number of injuries in the past 12 months in Eurobodalla was minimal.
People: it is time to trust those who are employed to do the job. The Eurobodalla Shire Council is doing a better job than most in NSW.
I can not believe that so much space was given to Trish Hellier regarding the sand pit (Bay Post/Moruya Examiner, December 28).
Now she wants it covered; it will be the beach next.
I am sure that there are far more pressing issues for you to cover in the shire than that.
Ms Hellier, if you want the sand pit covered, cover it yourself.
If you don't like it, stay away and don't take your grand kids there; problem solved.
Over the past week we have been inundated with the sad news of death by drownings in various states over the country.
We are encouraged to ensure children are safe around water and, most importantly, are taught how to swim.
Living in the Eurobodalla shire surrounded by water, the swimming lessons are vital.
Myself and many others have been disappointed and shocked to hear that the pool in Moruya may not been running these lessons during the summer due to lack of instructors.
I haven't seen any advertisements for qualified swim instructors.
The Moruya community will suffer the consequences.
I hope everyone gets behind this and demands this essential service be provided to our coastal town.
