Mum Praises Police for the Way They Handle High-Speed Pursuit

Article excerpt


MANY thanks to all the police involved in the pursuit of a stolen vehicle on Tuesday, February 28, and for catching the driver. I was shocked when I realised the four-wheel-drive that sped dangerously past my small car just south of the Pacific Hwy-Sawtell Rd turnoff was the subject of a police pursuit.

I was driving with my teenage son in the car at the time.

If the speeding car had hit us we would have both been killed or seriously injured.

From what I saw personally, the police handled the situation brilliantly and I'm very grateful for their service and protection.

I WOULD like to thank whoever found my house and office keys on the road near the Aanuka Beach Resort last month and handed them over to the police.

I had stupidly left them on the roof of the car after visiting Diggers Beach.

You made me very happy when I was reunited with them.

A BIG thank you to all the customers, new and old, who supported my garage sale fundraising efforts, at 28 Bardsley Cr, Toormina.

My goal this time is to raise $5000 to build a church/community centre in the Kamong Cham Prison, Cambodia.

So far I have raised $2800.

I am constantly encouraged by the offers from customers (and friends) on learning what the funds are for to donate goods to sell for the cause.

And those that return, to "find something to buy", just to support the cause. It's heart-warming to know that we Aussies live up to our reputation of helping our fellow man.


TO the lowlife who dumped cats at the end of our road in Bonville earlier this week - you have caused us a great deal of irritation.

Our daughter is devastated because she is not allowed to keep one.

I have just managed to catch one, which left several puncture wounds on my arms and face.

The RSPCA will only take them if we deliver them in a council cat trap which we have to hire at $30/week.

You absolute scumbag.

TO a local high school, which seems to be teaching kids its okay to toss your rubbish on the ground.

Also students at this school sit smoking in the playground on a log in full view of passing vehicles and pedestrians. …
