Letter to the Editor - No votes for ethanol to cut fuel costs, boost agriculture, save lives?

Dear Editor, By voting against laws the KAP introduced to mandate a 10 per cent ethanol content in motor vehicle fuels, major party politicians have denied Australians a significant cost-of-living saving at the bowser. On my only-ever overseas trip to study other countries’…

Letter to the Editor - Labelling fine leaves supermarkets laughing all the way to the bank

Dear Editor, The head of Coles, on a salary of some $15 million, would have been laughing all the way to the bank last week to pay the $60,000 fine for advertising fruit brought in from overseas as “Aussie-grown” straight after their promise to North Qld growers to use…

Letter to the Editor - Parliament preoccupied by politics as manufacturing crisis deepens

Letter to the Editor - Healthier Great Green Way

Dear Editor, My thoughts and friendship goes out to the 19 Innisfail locals at Healthier Great Green Way who have lost their jobs. The Premier says he hasn’t got any money – typical. The dually wasteful and spend-thrift Mr Premier is spending $51 billion while, just for…

Letter to the Editor - Marine Parks ban
