Comment on Miners are spreading myths, says environmentalist by Chris Slater.

Ermm. Interesting letter, Ken. Love to have a yarn with you one day.
In the meantime Councillor Jimmy who is taking a nice sum from the ratepayers purse to focus on the little issues in town might like to take a subsidised drive along Hayes Street, The Gap.
Perhaps then he may be able to tell me why I pay rates the same as a leafy suburb in Adelaide and yet endure an over-grown track that passes for a footpath, dead wood and rubbish that is potentially a fire hazard and an unacceptable mess and eyesore at the Gap Road end.
I don’t think there has been any real maintenance on Hayes Street in two years.
So forget the big issues Jimmy, do your job.
