COUNCIL CAN GET MONEY BACK
If council were to send one of its rangers to the walking/cycle path in East Albury along the side of the freeway, where it has posted several signs stating dog owners not having dogs on a lead will be fined $220 they would be able to catch a minimum six a day (before morning tea).
So if you multiply six a day by five days a week you get $2200 then do that for 50 weeks you end up with $330,000! As a bonus maybe the owners might put their dogs on a lead too.

LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES
Thank you for all the memories evoked by The Border Mail on Saturday (June 13).
Thirdly, there was the Uiver, that beautiful silver aeroplane which I saw at Albury Racecourse, being pulled out of the mud at the end of a rope, until the rope broke and the locals doing the pulling all fell in the mud, splatt! It was so funny, I laughed and have never forgotten.
Albury North Infants School may well be the only Infants School in the whole country which can claim to have had a group of ex-students who took part in the 1956 Olympic torch relay.

HANDS OFF OUR ABC
We live in a democracy and the most valuable part of a democracy is free speech and a unbiased media. Therefore it is inexplicable that the federal government is planning to cut the ABC budget again to tune of at least $100,000.
This means 200 people could lose their jobs in local and national newsrooms. How dare they.
The Coalition has continually cut funding to the ABC since 2013 probably because its hard-core, right-wing members feel it is biased against them. Well, guess what? The Labor party felt exactly the same way when they were in office.
It seems to me ideology is still driving this government to the detriment of the rest of us. Hands off our ABC or they will have more street marches on their hands when it's safe to march again.
