Commenting on the story:  Moran  feels “fearful, threatened” in council chamber

Big girls don’t cry. – Mike Lesiw 

According to all reports it is other councillors who should feel fear and that they are being disrespected by Anne Moran, and not the other way round.

Wasn’t it she who called another councillor a dickhead?

Maybe Ms. Moran has been keeping a seat warm on the ACC far too long and that she feels she owns it, is entitled to it.

Maybe it is time she stepped aside and allowed fresh, new, younger people to take over.

Having had a small business in Adelaide across the road from the Town Hall, I well remember the constant negativity over the years by the entire ACC.

It has stood in the way of even the smallest bit of progress in Adelaide.

Just look at the appalling mess they made of the Rundle Mall. They even tried to turn it into an elitist gathering place by forcing out some of those very popular food carts on the grounds that they did not represent the “better element” of Adelaide  – whatever that means.

Time to go, Anne. – Robert McCormick

Commenting on the story: Magistrate appointed as State Coroner

I am the widow of Jorge Castillo Riffo.

I am saddened to hear of Mark Johns’ retirement.

However, I understand the stress he must face as recommendations he makes, after clear considered expert summation, are consistently ignored.

It is now six months since Mr Johns finalised the inquest into the death of my husband Jorge, and absolutely nothing has been done.

Meanwhile, six deaths have occurred throughout Australia in the four and a half years since Jorge died in much the same way.

When will this Government accept and implement all recommendations made in this regard? How many more deaths constitutes a crisis?

I’m saddened and sick at heart at the absolute lack of commitment to workplace safety this Government demonstrates, and its ongoing lack of respect for the facts of the matter. –

Pam Gurner-Hall
