LAST week a police van pulled up at the front of my house. I panicked slightly and raced out tosee what may be wrong. In the front of the van was my dog Joe who had wandered off. They let him out, smiled and said we thought we would pick him up as we did not want theowner not knowing where he was and go looking for him in case he waspicked up by the ranger. Thank you very much officers, you were wonderful.
Gavin Wolfgram, RedheadHAPPY AustraliaDay fellow contributors, readers andHeraldstaff. Let’s celebrate the fact we live in thebest country in the world. Disagree? Then tell me where is better. OK, we’re not perfect but lifewould be bloody boring if we were. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie and proud of it.
Dave McTaggart,EdgeworthTHE Jets will continue to struggle, until a new ownerwho knows football, is found. A successfulclub starts with the administration and we really lack in that department. Showing somerespect to our best player, would be a good start. The capitulation on Sunday had a bad vibeabout. The body language of some players did not look good to me. FFA needs to get the sale of theclub into top gear.
Daryl Frost,EleebanaJOHN Sorensen (“Time to lower sights”Letters, 27/1) alludes to an oxymoron inrelation to the Jets. I think a classic oxymoron is the term “professional sport”.
Bruce Brown,Marks PointIF I was Scott Miller, I’d be resigning as Jets coach before he’s used as ascapegoat. It takes more than a coach to make a team, the teamneeds good players and after their 6-1 thrashing. Maybe a recruitment drive would be a goodidea.
Wayne Ridley,GatesheadHOW must it feel to have a worse send-off record than Muscat. Well, Jets management you did buy him.
Percy Cooper,Fern Bay6-1 down. At home. This is still not the team Newcastle Jets’ fans deserve. Still waiting.
Daryll Hadfield,RedheadGOOD grief.That loop de looping plane has now been loop de looping over us.Thanks for thegreat show.
Jennifer Bailey,Hamilton SouthI HAVE another “notbad idea”that Peter Mason (“Service at servos”Herald,27/1 ) might like to casta thought at: Those poor men without hope on Hunter Street could start shining shoes.
