Given the track record of Mayor Bob and his council I suppose it was inevitable.
They've finally "jumped the shark" with their fake grass down the centre of Auburn Street.
"It gives the street more of a garden feel," says Bob.
Does it? It`s green plastic and just another example of Kath and Kim kitsch.
Is council collecting more rate and grant money than they know what to do with, or are they intentionally trying to shark shock us?
At about a metre wide and more than 100 metres long it looks like the world`s longest cricket pitch or a very thin, longest in the world, novelty putt-putt golf hole.
The effect looks a bit 'forlawn' but if some of Bob`s fake grass gets stolen during the night, it's the council that`ll be looking forlorn!

I write to support the council's excellent move to put green covering on our medium strip to cover the endless, boring cement.
I hope they continue along the whole of Auburn Street to relieve the colourless view, for locals and travellers to enjoy. It really softens the appearance of our city centre.
The writer who criticised the council for not watering the small trees in the troughs obviously does not travel the length of Auburn Street early each morning to see the water trickling out from those well watered troughs.
Congratulations to City Council for trying something new and so effective.

Aged care "like third world countries"
Please help us to clean up this industry. It has become really shocking.
I helped to do so by working in aged care advocacy and reporting to them.
These places are like third world countries, no staff many untrained.
We forgo our homes, all we that we love, many thrown in for various reasons, mainly greedy relatives.
Please help us leave this world in better conditions than now.
