The unexplained fires around Surf Beach are of great concern, especially for those of us who are under threat.
However no amount of finger pointing or posturing can ignore that hazard reduction in this area has been sadly lacking.
My neighbours and my self have requested help in this area over a number of years with lots of promises and very little action.
The signs that tell us “Fire has a plan Do you?” do not help when we are prevented from burning and can get no help from those in control.
The Moruya Surf Club’s Town to Surf Fun Run has again proven to be a wonderful community event.
A sunny Sunday morning had the Moruya Riverside Park full of runners and power walkers of different ages as they prepared to head off on the 8km course.
Congratulations to the Moruya Surf Club for organising this annual event. Besides the physical benefits of the day, the event also celebrates our community working together. For many hands made the event possible, including St.Johns First Aid, Paul Johnson from Ironic Circus (music) and the local Council. Great to see so many group entries, including teams from St.Peters College, Batemans Bay Quota, Southern Phone to name a few.
The day was capped off by former Councillor, Danielle Bryce, announcing during the presentations, that funding had been made availalbe to complete the "missing link" shared bike path out to Moruya South Head. Suffice to say, this will only further enhance future Fun Runs to the Surf Club.
The Bay Post/Moruya Examiner’s recent stories about Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Gilmore MP Ann Sudmalis visits to the Eurobodalla need to be balanced with stories about the impact of the Abbott/Turnbull government policies.
Ann Sudmalis holds her seat by just over 400 votes. It will only take an unfavourable ruling by the High Court regarding dual citizenship of one lower house member of the Turnbull government for Mr Turnbull to lose his majority.
Under Abbott/Turnbull Government policies, high/very high wealth individuals and foreign corporations are the beneficiaries of the nation’s vast wealth and expanding income and further tax cuts.
Notably, Ann Sudmalis supports policies to this end.
Wage and salary earners, the jobless, welfare beneficiaries and families with children are progressively getting poorer.
