Commenting on the story: Spurrier nominated for SA Australian of the Year

So proud of Professor Spurier’s leadership.

A role model for woman and men. A hope for the future. – Helene Maddern

Spurrier is doing the job she’s paid to do. SA volunteers need to be applauded for helping across all obstacles during this pandemic. – Peter Kaffoukas 

Commenting on the story: Online abuse forcing girls to abandon social media

My question to parents is why are these kids on social media for a start? You are the parents and supposed to be in control of your kids.

It isn’t rocket science. Take the damn thing away from them until they are finished school. No wonder kids today are stressed. Do they really need phones and computers? Nothing like the text book, pen and exercise book. – Helen Woodhouse-Herrick

Commenting on the story: Slowing the sprint towards a cashless society

I can understand the benefits of becoming cashless by both the Government and banks, but do not believe it’s beneficial to everyone.

What is the fee going to be (for the merchant – prices go up and/or for the user). For a lot of “cashless” purchases there is a fee involved. How many people realise that Pay Wave defaults to Credit (higher fee for the merchant / more profit for the bank), for every time you buy a drink in a hotel, purchase a pie/coffee/sandwich.

Further to Sweden’s concern for the elderly and rural areas (and I think it would be even worse here), is it to be a death knell for charities donations, op shops, garage sales.

The Government needs to ensure that banks are required to provide a service for everyone – not just their bottom line. – Garry Shearing

Commenting on the story: Not JUST the footy scores

Hope this becomes a regular column about alternative sports, which have thousands of adherents, and who are usually overlooked given the endlessly repetitious coverage of footy and the cricket.

With more coverage of other sports we’ve got a better chance of attracting people (who are not attracted to the two majors) to get up and have a go at sport they may never have considered previously. – Christopher Millington

Love it! Thank you. – Russ Talbot
