A top show

Congratulations and well done to all involved in providing excellent entertainment through Hudson's Circus.

The Friday night performance was filled with amazement, wonder, laughs and awe as each of the acts displayed their skills.

It was great to see both children and adults cheering, whistling and clapping during and at the conclusion of each performance, without a digital device in sight.

Commendations to the professionalism and skill of all involved at Hudson's.

Special thanks to the "highway shark" for instigating their extended stopover in Ceduna.

Well done to local businesses and individuals who assisted with making Hudson's stay achievable.

Finally thanks to those parents who made it possible for their children to attend, especially as we are so close to Christmas with the many additional demands on their family budgets.

Some things never change

I just read the Sentinel report about the grant of monies to the Elliston Council for provision of landline to the area.

It brings back memories of the early 80s when the residents of Elliston fought to get reliable TV service to the township and would you believe the introduction of a computer into the area school.

It seems for isolated communities very little changes.

The road to nowhere

Ever wonder why I write letters to the editor?

Through social interaction I am finding that many other responsible, grounded members of our community have opinions similar to mine on what is happening in the real world.

Over the last few years I have read numerous letters written by Mr Terry Krieg who believes the most viable and cleanest power source is nuclear power.

Mr Krieg you are so right.

You are an intelligent man, sadly some ignorant politicians just play silly games wit our economic health and something so very basic as a strong consistent power supply has gone down the toilet.

I have a nephew who sub-contracts to BHP Billiton at Olympic Dam, 40 per cent of the world’s known uranium deposits are right there.

My nephew is a metallurgist.

His job is to find the most economical way to leach and separate the uranium, copper, gold etcetera from the mined ore.

We were discussing nuclear power recently. 

He probably knows more about uranium than anyone else in our state.

He would like to see a nuclear power station built near Port Augusta. 

The uranium would come from Olympic Dam and if we are going to have a nuclear waste dump, guess where that would be? 

Correct, a Olympic Dam.

In the November 7 edition of the Port Lincoln Times, Bruce Wilson from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science wrote a letter about a Kimba consultative committee for the proposed waste dump facilities, well come in spinner!

The words ‘nuclear’ or ‘uranium’ did not appear, only a ‘waste facility’ was mentioned and only once. 

Mr Wilson that was a waste of space.
