Local global climate action

Editor,

 Locally, here on our farm at Moonbah we are pretty excited. Three weeks ago we completed the installation of our solar panels and batteries, a 13.2 kW system. Since then we have avoided a total of 776 kg of carbon dioxide emissions (getting close to a tonne, and every tonne matters if we want to do the collective hard work to avoid 1.5 degrees of global warming!).

Editor,

Reference the letter from Pamela Warburton:

Amalgamation Failure

Editor,

Our roads are in a disastrous state.

The rot started on 31/1/1981 when the Monaro Shire amalgamated with the Cooma Municipality to form the Cooma Monaro Shire.

A bitter road to travel

Editor

Yet again, Council’s malodorous involvement with Werralong Road in Dalgety continues to raise eyebrows. Any reasonable person would believe that if your land is being forcibly acquired, you would have access and the right to understand the reasons why and who was involved underpinning such a decision. Clearly, this is not the case with Werralong Road.

The Post Man Calls

There is light at the end of tunnel, Covid-speaking.

Like every other resident in NSW, The Postman can’t wait until we regain some freedom from these horrible virus-driven regulations.

Riposte by Lisa Ashurst

Those of us using one or more of the various social media platforms (and I’m guessing that would be most of us) have probably seen that colourful post doing the rounds; it’s all tricked out in bright boho hues, with a peace sign and a cute kombi van for good measure. So joyful, so playful, and so redolent of the sentient days of peace, love and Patchouli incense. And it grabs your attention.
