Angling Report – 20 January 2017

North easterly winds pumped for much of last week and these create very bumpy sea conditions and the surf becomes unpredictable and mushy. At this time of the year most of the fishing action is out at sea where the offshore anglers target the various species of game fish, so these are not the conditions…

Letters: Swift response to emergency

On December 27, my grandson swallowed a 50c coin. I came running to my boss, Mr Roberts of Roberts & Chaplin. He said call IPSS paramedics. They came in a twinkle of an eye and examined the baby. They took us straight to Stanger Hospital. If we had called the public ambulance, they would take…

Letters: Always willing to help

We had a poacher destroying the fish and bird life on the lake in front of the Pondokkie. The man was stringing gill nets right across the lake and catching not only all the fish, but also the cormorants etc that nest on the little island. For a year, we phoned the police and various…

Letters: ‘Panga Attack’ was irresponsible reporting

I felt I should voice my opinion on your front page story regarding the Loxley Estate incident (Panga attack on young family, Courier January 6). I do not believe that your paper has been responsible with this story for a number of reasons. You have dramatized this incident in an extreme manner, which will have…
