To the Editor Townsville
Bulletin 11 December 2005.
You know the "Fort" at
Horseshoebay on the Island has more relevance and significance as a
"military sacred" place than the Jezzine
The Fort and a number of other spots around
the hills there, was actually a pioneering "lookout" with plenty of people
around at the wartime, so let's build the "war-obelisk-memorial" upon that hill
instead or why not Palm Island which the editor John Andersen so greatly pointed
out a few weeks ago in the Bulletin, being a frontier during the War
I understand that Townsville is running out
of land for development so I guess the present council is now looking to
make the Island to a "normal" surburb soon, and not seing Magnetic Island as a
totally separate entity, off-shore. And then even the Island shall lose
the tourism, we so much is dependent on.
Maybe Thuringgowa can lease or lend some of
its waste land, to Mr. Mooney.
