Upper Hutt Leader : September 21st 2011
12 UPPER HUTT LEADER, SEPTEMBER 21, 2011 LETTERS Contact: email@example.com 021 270 9113 3489075 PAUL SWAIN UPPER HUTT REGIONAL COUNCILLOR 7 Leonards Rd, Mangaroa Upper Hutt Ph 526 4515 www.thompsonshorsecentre.co.nz THOMPSONS HORSE CENTRE MAKE YOUR CHILD'S NEXT BIRTHDAY A DAY TO REMEMBER 3489984AN Book a party and let them horse around at our place Ring today for further details Wet or fine we have it covered! EKERS' WEEK Global warming solution After recent snow and hail storms in a world allegedly destroying itself with global warming, I realised that the powers that be lack the skills to save our society from roasting to death. Namely, imagination, gumption and initiative. After all, have you ever seen the powers that be do anything that benefited those forced by law to pay their wages? After several glasses of red wine at my barbecue table I realised that global warming is easily fixed. Intuitively I realised that I had the gumption to utilise my initiative to suggest my imagination would provide the answer to global warming. Are you sitting comfortably? Right, let us begin. Every Sunday starting at midnight Saturday, every fridge owner in the world will open their fridge door for the next 24 hours. The fridge motors will drag in the hot air created by the powers the be and chill it down to a suitable level to alleviate global warming. Doyouseehoweasyitistouse your imagination, gumption and initiative for the good of mankind? Maybe our authorities should learn to think outside their bureaucratic day-dreaming box- ticking exercises? LAURIE BENNETT, Upper Hutt Fluoride debate Of course the fluoride debate is emotional , Keith Davis. I get very emotional when my health and the health of my children is under threat by a bunch of unscientific fanatics. I would love to know which studies have been done that show evidence of Mary Byrne s assertion that Upper Hutt people are suffering disproportionately from thyroid problems. I had a thyroid test done recently and the result was perfect. Instead of saying science prevails over scepticism , Keith Davis, I would say science must prevail over pseudo-science . Pseudo-science is what these people are peddling, not science. S HADEN, Upper Hutt John Key would be proud of Councillor Nick Thomas for placing a contentious issue in the public arena and backing off to await the reaction. Mr Thomas now has to be accountable as, in some cases, the letters to the Leader have been in the tone of pit bulls fighting the issue to the death. If Mr Thomas has been gagged, then Mayor Wayne Guppy, also representing us as deputy chair on the Hutt Valley DHB, should be advising residents what action the council intends taking on this issue. I SIMONS, Birchville Wrongful accusations I would like to point out to the first time writer Ian Snalam that on the morning of September 11, the two young men you saw tagging the rock pyramids were, in fact, down there with scrubbing brushes and meths trying to remove the misspelt Go All Blak graffiti, which in fact was done the weekend before. I know this because I was one of these young men. Despite our efforts, we were unable to remove it. If you, Mr first time writer truly cared, you would have contacted authorities regarding the matter. Sometimes, things don t always seem as they appear. BLAINE MOHR, Upper Hutt Thanks We would like to thank Steve Bailey of Export Meat Warehouse and Richard Quickfall of Maidstone Countdown for their donation of goods for our fundraising barbecue on September 9 outside our branch. PSIS and the community of Upper Hutt raised $812 for the Wellington Free Ambulance, a worthy cause. BRENT PALMER, PSIS Upper Hutt branch manager
