Letters to the editor

Dick James, of Launceston, says Tasmania is in a fortunate position when it comes to water and renewable energy.Renewable EnergyOF THE various sources of renewable energy, that which is produced from water is the most constant. This is because, unlike wind and solar power, it is easily possible to store the energy source in lakes and dams and so guarantee a constant level of generation. This is Tasmania’s fortunate position.

In the light of this we should be exploring further opportunities to generate hydro power which then gives us a three-fold benefit – electricity generation, water available for irrigation and flood crests reduced.I would urge a Meadowbank-type dam on the Huon River, a dam somewhere near Glen Esk on the South Esk and a similar structure on the North Esk. We are very conscious that these rivers can at times rampage and dams will lessen those events while delivering other benefits.

Dick James, Launceston.HeadlightsWHILE waiting for a bus last week in Hobart Road in Kings Meadows, I was observing the amount of vehicles that were driving without headlights on as it was pouring with rain. There were actually dozens of them.Apparently the drivers don’t follow the road rules, or don’t know them, even some commercial vehicles.

Another thing that annoys me is drivers who decide to indicate when they reach the traffic lights and not before to warn following drivers what they intend doing. Several years ago I lived at Legana and while travelling home one afternoon a driver indicated right and then turned left.I very nearly ran up the driver’s back end.

Cecil Neil Guy, Youngtown.Free Tip DayWHILE providing two free tip passes a year to Launceston ratepayers is a really good idea, unfortunately it is far outweighed by the frustration and annoyance of ratepayers spending extended periods of time sitting in their cars in lengthy queues to access the tip on two nominated days ayear. The question must also be asked of the disruption to businesses along the tip road, including the City Mission-run tip shop and the RSPCA. Some people indicated they waited over an hour in a queue to reach the tip, so imagine the frustration of people simply wishing to visit other businesses along that road.

A thought should also be given to the City of Launceston staff who had to greet ratepayers at the end of a lengthy wait.I am advised than many councils offer free tip passes to be used at any time over a certain period, and it is hoped that the City of Launceston will see merit in this way forward.

Rosemary Armitage MLC, Independent Member for Launceston.Refugee IntakeTHANKS for the compliment Carmen Frelek regarding my letter on refugee intake (The Examiner, September 14).

Though I would encourage Ms Frelek not to judge a book by its cover when saying “the tragic plight and circumstances some of our fellow Australians find themselves in, is because they are the result of weak adult role models during their childhoods, with insufficient guidance and leadership with the family unit when growing up”. That observation does not apply to all poor and homeless Australians.I am the son of an Anzac, and proud of it.

A.R. Trounson, Needles.Theatre SeatsIN regard to the letter by Mike Turner about the new Princess Theatre seating, my wife and her cousin, both long-term patrons and supporters of Theatre North, went to a show there recently. My wife, who is only just over 150 centimetres was just able to fit whilst her cousin, who is taller, had her knees forced against the row in front and had to sit slightly sideways, whilst a tall guy near them had his legs raised and knees bent to fit in.
