Recently the Milton Ulladulla Times featured an article on the Lions Preloved Bookshop which was in need of booked to sell.
The response to your story was most impressive and on behalf of the preloved book team, I wish to thank you most sincerely for the publicity you gave us.
As you may be aware all our profits go to the Lions Ulladulla District Community Foundation and with the completion of the Jindelara Respite House we are now gearing up for our next project
We will keep you posted when we get closer to the announcement date.

Stuck on Dutton
I was thinking about Peter Dutton the other day and now I can't get these lyrics out of my head.
"Eleven-minute man, eleven-minute man Look a here all I'm telling you now They call me a 'Hardened Man' I sock 'em, boot 'em all night long I'm an eleven-minute man If you don't believe I'm all that I say Come up and take my hand When I let you go you'll cry 'Oh yes' 'He's an eleven-minute man'..."
With apologies to Billy Ward and his Dominoes (Sixty Minute Man 1951) and of course our very own Daddy Cool.

Crossing urgently needed
On one side of the Princes Highway is Milton Hospital with associated therapies also Sarah Claydon Retirement Village.
Opposite the hospital are twomedical practices and Pathology, but there is no pedestrian crossing to link them.
The intensity of traffic makes it difficult, at any time, to cross the highway, and it is extremely dangerous during the holiday period. The alternative is a 400 metre walk to cross at the Milton pedestrian crossing and traversing two cross streets.
In my eighty-ninth year I require a walking stick and many residents of the Village of comparable age use walking aids which makes a visit to the doctor hazardous.
I would suggest, ideally, pedestrian operated traffic lights or at the very least a pedestrian refuge island like the one in Ulladulla linking the East side mall with Woolworths.

Come on Coles - okay bread goes up 20 cents but when you put a bag of potato chips from $2.70 up to $4.50 and the store next door can sell the same brand for $2 I will now shop elsewhere.
Catch it before it's gone
You'll have to be quick, take a look.
Nestled behind the shoreline of Jervis Bay, Hawke Street, Huskisson is an Aboriginal sacred site with graves of Aboriginal people as well as of early European settlers. It's supported by wonderful trees planted in a memorial ceremony in 1937.
Sitting on this peaceful and spiritual land brings an awareness of some of what was part our Indigenous heritage and of this area's wonderful natural heritage.
A spotted gum sits quietly and majestically amongst the many, but showing off its attractive mottled trunk with limbs growing out and up. Its hollows support lorikeets and Sugar Gliders. A magic place!
But added to this, the quaint little church with its bell tower sits harmoniously within the space, bringing back a nostalgia of times gone past. The old hall added to and changed and changed again still shows the shape that was the first church in Huskisson.
Why do you have to be quick? There is already an approved DA to move the quaint church on site but no other plans? The developer has shown he wants to build at least three storey (maybe more) buildings
Just what Huskisson needs? Not here, Huskisson deserves better. Community must speak out. Now is the time.
