Canberra Times letters I am shocked.
Shocked, I tell you, at the latest outrage to befall Canberra. I'm talking about the proposed seven storey development in Forrest that the Canberra Times exposed on March 15. Only last month there were plans to turn Curtin shops into Las Vegas, with a six storey glittery skyscraper destroying every vestige of community life. It is bad enough we are having a modern light rail system built to meet our future needs, but now they want to impose six and seven storey monoliths on us. What we need is a Residents Action Group on every corner, manning the barricades against making Canberra tall, wide, and architecturally interesting. If we don't make oakley authorized dealer a stand now, who knows what will be developed in Canberra: the Hanging Gardens of Bonython, the Leaning Tower of Pearce, the Colossus of Reid, or the Great Pyramid of Gilmore? I only hope my cats and grandcats never live to see the day when Canberra is ruined by becoming a medium density, contemporary, much envied and vibrant city. Simon Tatz, CurtinOnce we had planners of renown who designed into the Griffin city framework, respecting the work of planning experts who gave us our beautiful lake and landscaped city. Now Canberra is shaped by developers who hijack city planning, lobby politicians and where possible give their proposals the "Griffin" imprimatur. Penleigh Boyd (letters, March 16) pointed out how the Light Rail works has misappropriated Griffin's name in its hoarding presumably to justify the light rail's location along Northbourne Avenue. However inappropriate the naming in the hoarding black friday deals on oakley sunglasses is, it is not as damaging as the West Basin so called "Griffin Legacy" building estate proposal that will obliterate the community parkland designed by the Griffins. But the suggestion by Boyd for the NCA to counsel the ACT Government on misquoting Griffin is questionable when the NCA continually uses Griffin oakley sport green stamping propaganda to justify the building estate subdivision over West Basin's lakeside parkland. Juliet Ramsay, Burra, NSWOn March 17 the St. George branch at Erindale was due to close. I along with many others oakley america received a letter to this effect recently. It stated that following a detailed review they have decided that St. George at Tuggeranong is better equipped to help customers in the ACT. It is an insult to one's intelligence to imply customers will be better off under the new arrangements. Doing business with the bank will not change but getting to the point of service will be a lot more inconvenient. The letter also stated that they would love to hear from us. I rang the number and was given the usual dialogue: "please leave a message, we will get back to you". When nobody got back to us we went to see the bank manager at Tuggeranong and discussed it with her. She was courteous but could do nothing. There are a number of elderly people living in this suburb who regularly use this bank so going to Tuggeranong will be a major setback for them. If anyone from the St. George Bank ACT would like to contact me I would be only too pleased to discuss this matter with them. I thank Fr Robert Wilson (letters, March 16) for his invitation to me to examine New Testament passages such as Mark 9: 42.
I accepted his invitation and found there are several passages in the gospels all confirming what he says: that God is a very strict judge and will severely punish those who do not listen to Him and do as He says. I make no secret that l am anti abortion but l am also very much pro choice. Women who have abortions usually do not do it without a lot of soul searching and incredible anxiety, often bought on by the fact they know that they will be condemned by a church they have often grown up in and told by its hierarchy it was an accepting society.
