Commenting on the story: ‘They’re going to complain’: Apartments squeeze city music pubs

You can’t buy a home next to an airport, complain about the noise and expect the planes to stop or the airport to close. I have never understood why music venues are not given the same consideration.

When a pub or music venue is established prior to a residential or office building that fact, along with its hours of operation, should be made clear to incoming owners and residents. Music should not start before 11am and should cease at midnight.

Having thus agreed to move in next door to a music venue, new residents should have no right to complain about noise occurring within the pre-stated times. The onus should be on the new structure to be built with appropriate sound proofing.

If the new building is for short term accommodation, the operation of the neighbouring music venue should be made clear to all guests at the time of booking. If they continue to reserve the room they should have no right to complain about noise within agreed times. – Anna Mycko

There’s a simple solution for this: prior use. If you move in near a music venue, you do so accepting the fact, and waive any right to object or complain. Solved in one fell swoop. – Allan Robins

Commenting on the story: Farewell: A Final Fumbles

This Port supporter will sorely miss your missives. I may yet cry 119 times. – Vicki Bennett

As a committed Port member, I want to say good bye and good luck, Fumbles. It’s been a pleasure to read your weekly missive and a humourous and fun way to start the week.

Fortunately for me, despite the regular cracks at my team, it’s been more about the Crows’ trials and tribulations than anything else.

I was able to even recently use A Touch Of the Fumbles as reference material when a Crows supporter commented on Facebook that Alex Rance’s recent interview about the Crows’ 2017 GF power stance was nearly five years ago, so why not give it a rest.

I mentioned that Fumbles keeps referencing 119 or variations thereof and that was nearly 15 years ago, so Crows fans have a long way to go yet before that one can be put to bed. – Michael Reyes-Smith

Oh how I will miss you Tom! And I’m a diehard Port supporter.

I hesitated before writing this in case it may give you a heightened sense of importance regarding the effect you have on us Port supporters. I reluctantly realise A Touch of the Fumbles has been the go to column for me in my season. Always first read and such enjoyable sarcasm especially when the Crows lose. And still sort of amusing when we lose.

A little part of me is happy that you will not be around to comment on the final Port games but life will not be the same without you. Thank you Tom. – Barb McMahon
