Council does not build or own pubs. None. If a private land owner choses to use their own land to build a pub within commercially zoned strips on main roads - that is their right. Just like it's your right to be a hippy & live in a house bus with five children. Council uses the money gathered to plant more trees in better locations for future generations. Nothing else.

Elseware in this website you've recently posted a huge list of surfboards (how many...11???), ALL of these are wood, they are all made from exotic & slow growing species like redwood, balsa, cedar, fijian kauri etc, all of these trees were felled & milled were they not?
Can you explain to the readers how come it's not ok for a land owner to remove a tree you enjoyed in the 1970's and pay a hefty premium to do so...but it is quite ok for you to use similarly exotic woods to build your surfboards.
Your comments (and your quiver) smack of double standards and a poorly resolved belief system.

Brent wrote:You patronising git.
Now regarding your patronising comment about my "tree" post; I said "exotic & slow growing", I did not say all the woods you used were slow growing, I was attempting to say that some were exotic AND some were slow growing. In this I am quite correct. The slow growing ones I refer to are cedar and Fijian Kauri.
In reply to your reef-related comments...
1) The chief reporter of our local paper has all sorts of people attempting to lobby him, he, being a responsible journalist has to qualify what he writes in his articles or risk losing credibility for his newspaper; I suspect he was only interested in comments from those with (in his readership's eye) a vested economic interest in the Reef project. Surf shop owners, local Hoteliers and the like. That stuff makes interesting reading - not mis-informed ramblings. That's what the Web is for eh Roy?

You refer to our main beach as your "office", yet you live 88 kilometers inland. You don't even live in the same postal code as your "office". Valley Roy....That's your new name. Comes over the hill sometimes for a surf.
You do not own property here (and contribute property rates) nor do you rent (and contribute indirectly that way), you are not on any electorial role (neither local government nor parlimentary)in this area so you do not vote here. You choose to not contribute anything worthwhile via any legitmate process so frankly, no-one here gives a xxxxx what you say.
I sure don't since I discovered you don't even live here
All you seem to do is drift in cyberworld from one website to the other starting arguments and offering half-baked long winded posts and grand sweeping obscure statements about your surf craft. We all love interesting surfboards (your's sure are)...But we don't need to be awash in their virtues daily. You have a captive audience until the locals realise you don't take your medicine regularly (That's a joke Roy).
Even the nice genteel chaps over at Swaylocks blocked you from their site eventually; that is really impressive...you must have really pissed the hippies off. Some of the "post Roy" posts were lovely as well, like "I miss Roy, I can just imagine him siting there in front of his fire all alone with his computer turned off wearing a tartan wetsuit muttering to himself".
Roy, also, you should think before suggesting what you did in your last paragraph; Remember I'm not an abstract cyberperson, I am a real person who lives in the town and surfs & hangs out at the breaks you visit sometimes.
Be careful Roy...
