We have three poll questions for readers to consider for the next two weeks.
- Is Rubbish becoming more widespread?
- Are drugs becoming a problem locally?
- Are you happy with local radio station playlists?
The rubbish question comes as rubbish has been found along the riverbank and other locations and it is starting to frustrate locals and someone has to say it has to stop or just allow it to continue.
The drug question was planned for asking after needles were found around town, the question was then held up until the previous poll questions were answered and now we’ve got the opportunity to ask.
Radio playlists are like Baseball, it is either a hit or a miss to listeners and we are wondering if the playlists are pleasant on the ears or do they need a little tweaking like feeling that there should be more or less classic rock, more local music content, take a chance on unknowns or play a wider variety of music or something else.
Poll questions are on the right hand side of this website and are scheduled to be changed on April 3.
In this edition of Deni Speaks, we asked readers three questions on our website and we can now discuss the outcome of the voting.
1. Do we need national sporting events to come to Deniliquin?
2. Should it be legal to defend your home?
3. Are you happy with Phone companies?
62% of voters believe that national sporting events do need to come to Deniliquin, this proves that Deniliquin has an appetite for events even if some events do cause problems getting to and from places for the duration of the events.
100% of voters believe it should be legal to defend your homes, this question was raised after fears residents anywhere in Australia could be charged if an intruder is injured or killed in the residents home.
75% of voters have said that they are unhappy with phone companies, this is understandable considering the problems we have had with services including Telstra having problems with its 3G network locally from March 12 and into today (March 13).
The willingness for allowing national events to come to Deniliquin could serve as a financial boom for the local area as local businesses have proven they can equal and beat competition from around the nation.
The total support for home defense is logical and we hope to never read in news services that somebody who defended their home has to wait and see if they will be charged with anything.
Phone services have been a pain for locals, it is understandable that Australia has problems because we’re the size of a large chunk of Europe who have billions more to spend than we do but services should always be of high standard regardless.
Thank you for voting and reading Deni Speaks, we will be back with a new edition soon.
Over the last couple of weeks, DNS has asked visitors to this website two questions to see what locals think.
‘Does Deniliquin need a new Cinema?’
95% of voters said that Deniliquin does need a new Cinema after living through more than a decade without one in the town.
As it currently stands a local has to go to Echuca to enjoy the latest big screen release and whilst that means they can also just go down the road and pick up some KFC too it is around a 90 minute round trip which is the down side even if it is balanced with something tasty.
So if there is a business out there that is into cinemas, take a look at Deniliquin because we’re interested.
‘Should locals be closely informed about any major Hume Dam releases?’
92% of voters said that locals should be closely informed about any major Hume Dam releases.
This result is understandable after many felt that there was not enough information on what was coming down the river and it was left to others to find, post and alert residents on what was coming and how high it was going to be.
Deniliquin residents have stuck to the current trend of voting for something with a clear majority.
Deni Speaks will be back as soon as there is new questions put up and ran with for two weeks.
