LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Letter writer Adrian Sullivan, of Coles Bay, is concerned development will destroy the beautiful Freycinet Peninsula. FREYCINET FUTUREIT’S happening again. The government are subsidising business to the effect of $245 000 to further damage the very thing that has attracted so many tourists to the Freycinet Peninsula.

I was alarmed to read that the developer putting buildings on top of a penguin rookery on Picnic Island in Coles Bay was getting a grant from the government to subsidise his costs, as reported last weekend as Tourist Development Grants on the East Coast.

This blot on the bay has already spoilt the views across the bay to the Hazards but now the developer is going to cash in more on Freycinet’s wilderness with money in his bank.

This is another example of how we all lose some of our precious wilderness so that an individual can profit.I am saddened to see our beautiful bay spoilt.

Adrian Sullivan, Coles Bay.HELPFUL HOSPITALWITH the negativity relating to staff at the Launceston General Hospital at the moment, I would like people to hear a positive story.

A person slips at 5.30am at a shack at St Helens and fractures her hip, rings an ambulance which arrives promptly, two in fact arrive with paramedics.

Service and attention at shack and trip to Launceston 10 out of 10.

She arrives at the Launceston General Hospital emergency and is seen to by nurses etc promptly, again service 10 out of 10 and is transferred to 5B that night.

Her operation proceeds with success the next day and then back to 5B for recovery.

Service and attention was first class, nothing was too hard for nurses in ward 5B, patients needs came first. The patient was then transferred to Ward 3R for rehabilitation where patients husband was astounded at the way his wife was and was being looked after, nothing was too big a problem.

The staff attending worked efficiently and without any thoughts of tiredness themselves, 10 out of 10 again.

In ending this letter, the government etc. is probably aware of the doctors, nurses etc. run off their feet, so try to put or allow some monies to grass root of problems in hospitals so they can employ more staff.

David Prior, Youngtown.PENALTY RATESI WRITE this in response to Jynette O’Grady’s letter (The Examiner, March 30).

You have a very strange view on business and how it should be run.

I don’t know how old you are (teenager, young adult, or a mature worker), but your views on “profit on the labour of others” intrigues me.Is not business built on the ability of people doing their job well, diligently, capably, and honestly.

I agree with you some perks of our politicians leave a bit to be desired, but to have a job of any description is a privilege and not a right.

If some people decide to take a job as a casual (as I have in the past), I thought I was lucky to have that option.

As far as people making profits of the labour of others, I wonder where your shoes, shirt, jumper, dress, socks, undies, pyjamas,TV, video, carpet, etc come from?

I could go on and on, but companies and businesses do use people’s knowledge,abilities and talents to make profits to pay wages .If you don’t understand this, maybe you should become a Labor party member or a union rep.

Steve Rogers, South Launceston.PULP MILLONE wonders what the situation would be like if the Pulp Mill was functioning at this present time.Our water catchment levels are so low that water restrictions have been implemented in some municipalities.

The volume of water needed to run the mill surely would deplete our supplies of water – what then would the affected communities do for this precious resource?
