Letters to the Editor - August 2013

30 Jul 2013

Awesome Abby

I have on two ocassions nearly written in to commend one of your writers – Abby Crawford – on her regular piece in the Docklands News.

I have just sat in a cafe having lunch and had to write this time.

Please pass on that I really enjoy reading her articles, and whilst the one she has written in issue 88 will have been far harder to write than she could explain, I think it is awesome that she did.  

Without people in positions of leadership and reach (like journalists) doing this – effectively exposing themselves, their opinions and opening themselves up – the debate, that should lead to action, is not as rich as it could be.

I have read a few pieces in the main newspapers on the topic of domestic violence. Abby has an ability to tell a story simply, yet clearly, and make point unambiguously with a feeling of reality.  

A great writer/member of your staff.  Oh, and the rest of the paper is always worth a read through too.  I work at ANZ HQ in Docklands, and you guys featured me and a few of our team last year about the ride to conquer cancer and our fundraising which was great.

Where are we up to?

As a part-time resident of Docklands I love reading your monthly newspaper to keep abreast of local development and issues.

What I would like to see is a monthly register of approved projects and where they are up to. Any new projects should also be accompanied by a map of exactly where they are to be built, as it is often difficult to work out.

What the hell is going on with the big wheel? Could it go any slower? It is so important to the businesses in Harbour Town so get on with it. A monthly update please.

Why isn’t the large TV screen in the piazza working?

What about a kids playground on Harbour Town side of Docklands?

The Goods Shed No 2 is still advertised as a vegetable market yet is full of office space. What is the status of this project?

Keep up the good work.

Mike
