These construction screws were found by me when practicing Tai Chi with a group of people on January 28 in Bicentennial Park.
These sharp objects were lying in the yellowing grass where the performance stage was set-up during the country music festival. This is a shaded area which is used by a lot of young kids with their parents and I think that this situation is potentially lethal.
I've chosen to send this image now and not then because If it had been published it would have had the potential to alarm any visitors who might still have been in town.
Tamworth Regional Council puts its citizens at risk by not following any kind of appropriate clean-up procedure in this area of the park after this major event.
Surely where there has been a stage constructed and then deconstructed in a grassy place some sort of real focus could have pulled onto that particular area when cleaning up.

Chaffey Dam water release
I was stunned to see Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson complaining about recent water releases from Chaffey Dam.
Now we also see his councillor colleagues and the Director for Water also raising their heads to complain too. Where were they all back in October 2019 when Mark Rodda first raised the issue which concerns us all? They voted 7-1 to shut him up and the mayor rudely said that he didn't do his homework.
Kevin should have been asking questions long before this. He should also be going into bat for us over who will own the new Dungowan Dam and pipeline infrastructure otherwise we may face another disaster like this again when and if our dams return to healthy levels.
Kevin also better get onto starting that dam otherwise his parliamentary colleagues may think the money could be better spent elsewhere like a new stadium.
If he doesn't act, the blame will lie at the feet of Kevin and his councillor mates who don't think the public have a right to know about where our water went.

'Global warming' is the acme of amentia conceived by those who are obsessed with pernicious pessimistic piffle.
How do we eradicate this fictitious rhetorical revelation? Simply explained as: global-universal, warming-moderate degree of heat. Are we doomed with this hypomania? I think not, after all it is plainly known as weather.
