Van owners treated badly
Last Wednesday, March 17, 16 permanent on site van owners were given eviction notices from Lake Conjola entrance caravan park for the purpose of building a play pool for park tourists.
I would have thought that these 16 owners should have been given a letter of thanks for their contributions both physically and economically to the Shoalhaven during the recent bushfires, floods and the years of lake mismanagement when they have uncomplainingly just kept paying fees and visiting the area .
What an unthinking, tone deaf, arrogant and callous way to say thanks and get out. These 16 van owners contribute over $100,000 per year to the Shoalhaven just through their rates.
I wonder if it wouldn't be a better idea to use that money to maintain the lake entrance so everyone can have a clean lake to swim in rather than build a play pool for park visitors only.
If council is so flush with money they can forgo this $100,000 maybe they could put it towards bushfire recovery or the RFS or roads or mental health or something that benefits all residents.
All visitors here agree that a clean lake is the number one reason for their visit to this area and putting in a play pool does not change that. They will still change their holiday if the lake is filthy.
Wake up and stop kicking people when they're down.

Is the caravan parks going to close due to virus? There are too many people in them.
I live at Lake Conjola and the council caravan park has too many tourists.
Is it going to close?

White lines needed
Ulladulla businesses would benefit if the town's 45 degree angle parking spaces were not only marked out by signs on poles, but also with white lined painted in the road way.
One car would then occupy one space instead of two.

I have to wait 12 months for double hysterectomy and prolapse. At the moment i am in extreme discomfort. It is depressing i have to wait one year to have this fixed. May as well put my head in a bucket of water.

Lake Conjola beauty
Wow. What a pleasure to see.
David Pope has quite the eye. Beautiful illustrations showcasing our wonderful South Coast.
Lake Conjola was photoliscous. Keep it going please.
Such a relief from all the sorrow that has been endured.
Visit the coast. Just the coast!

Keep the chain strong
Australia`s secure borders can be likened to a chain stretching around our coastline and providing us with a sense of security.
Sadly, the activities of many on Bondi Beach and the latest cruise liner disembarking its passengers with limited health checks demands the critique.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and the latest two examples validates the charge of careless and reckless behaviour which could break the chain that provides so much security.
Individual decisions taken in isolation is less risky but combine the risks in the one area and the odds of safety are much lessened.
As the coronavirus spreads more severe restrictions will have to be put in place so keep the chain strong and act responsibly, it`s not that hard!
