Myrtle Park rules make no sense
WE CAN travel all over the state, go to the zoo, walk through all parks, and attend parties. Tasmania has been COVID-19 free for a long time.
Australia has not had any local cases for four days nationwide, and you really want to professionally clean Myrtle Park and waste $1000 on it?
This is plain stupid, and frankly, let's get real. The chances of catching COVID-19 at Myrtle Park are zero.
I recently had heart surgery, so I am vulnerable, but this is just ridiculous.

I am concerned at the reasoning behind the university's move to the Inveresk site as it still does have negative implications for the city that seem to be being overlooked.
We already are a university city, the current major site being only five minutes from the city centre at most times, apart from peak traffic hours.
At a time when the university representatives are saying they have had major losses and need to let go of staff, they are making massive investments in buildings and not people.
With the COVID-19 impacts yet to be fully understood for the long term viability, why spend all these resources on buildings that are not essential at this time.
People needs are far more important in this current phase.
The main site at Newnham campus, Mowbray is superior for several reasons, one being its elevation.
And that it is already established, though buildings have been shamefully and woefully neglected by the management and are in need of refurbishment.
Many of the beautiful areas with stunning outlooks are not even currently utilised.
The further city university development is yet another unnecessary one, instead of improving and embracing what we already have in Launceston, as has been repeated again and again much to many peoples disappointment, there are empty buildings left in the wake of it.
I agree that the Inveresk city location suits the arts sector well and as a location for the university library and apartments.

Returning the Petroglyphs
WHAT great news that the petroglyphs will be returned to their rightful place and to their people who will re-commence their care.
Let the healing for the Tasmanian Aboriginal community begin.

Police Strip Search
WHEN Tasmania police do the right thing, we should support them.
When they do the wrong thing, we should tell them. It is unbelievable Tassie law enforcement keep having to be told sowing mistrust by strip-searching and abusing children is wrong.
