Why should the public give in to bored youths?

REGARDING the bus station not wanting to replace seats because of teenage troublemakers, why should members of the public be made to give in to a lot of bored out-of-their-mind youths?

THERE must be quite a few people who feel as sad as I do when they look at the pubs that are closed in Workington today.

Motorists are just soft touches when it comes to fuel

THE price of petrol is a major issue. I am old enough to recall, whilst an apprentice in the motor trade in 1947, petrol being two shillings 1½d per gallon; or about 10 to 11 pence per 25 litres.

ALLERDALE councillors on the Derwent Valley Task Group are right to speak of putting a “wow” factor into a new sports development in Workington.

Hold steady and we'll come out of the other side of the recession

ALMOST every economist in the world, from Nobel prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz to the Governor of the Bank of England (not noted left-wingers), knows that when you cut public spending in a recession, factories close, jobs are lost, unemployment goes up, and tax revenues fall, making the deficit bigger, not smaller.

Harbour authorities have a duty to be open and honest

MR DAVIDSON, Harrington Harbour and Dock Board chairman, stated (letters, September 18) that he did not say that the harbour boat owners were lucky to have had a number of years without paying mooring fees, in his reply to my question on behalf of the Boat Owners Association/Harbour Steering Group at the full council meeting on August 26.

The rightness of compassion

YET again Raymond Hall reminds me of Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s words: “What sort of Bible do some of these self-proclaimed Christians read? It’s certainly not the one I know!”

WHAT is the point of providing special buses for persons with limited mobility and then having a bus station with no seats?

Mining is the sensible option for Broughton Moor

I READ your story concerning Nick Fardon’s statement in respect of opencast mining at the former RNAD site, which contains the former Buckhill Colliery, with enormous interest.

No communication to Harrington boat owners

IN RESPONSE to Coun Mike Davidson (letters, September 18) I would first like to point out that in his minutes of March 27, for Harrington Harbour and Dock Board, it was reported that Harrington boat owners had enjoyed free mooring for the past three years which implied that they were “lucky”, which he then denied.

Violence in the extreme as second nature

SOME of the 1970s children’s comics have been recently reproduced with fighting language that seems from another era - “thwak”, “bash”, “kripes”, “thurump” and “Fflap” - as cartoon characters go all out to thump each other with fisticuffs.

Finally, some sense about the Dump

FINALLY some sense is being talked about the “Dump” (Times & Star, September 18) but it’s a pity that Nick Fardon could not have been more open and forthright when he was part of the council.

Wind farms are a waste of time

A POINT to ponder: what use are windmills? Windmills may provide clean electricity, but only when the wind blows. That is fact.

Is it right for the county council to charge a £20 admin fee for residents' parking permits?

Yes, the council needs to cover its costs.
