Poll Time (31/5/18)

May 31 2018

We have new poll questions for readers to consider as we ask about our local State MP, Getting cars serviced in Echuca and whether or not a Dog Park is still thought about?

Questions Asked

How well is Austin Evans going as our State MP?
Getting your Holden serviced in Echuca is……
Does Deniliquin need a fenced, off leash dog park with activities and obstacles
Do you think the plan for the Federal Hotel will be done?

Thoughts

It has been a couple of months since the Austin Evans held off Helen Dalton to keep our state seat of Murray in Nationals hands, how well do you think he has done since making his way to Sydney to represent us?

It has been five months since Burchfields shut down forcing car owners to get their cars serviced in Echuca as Holden had no wish to keep operations going, how have car owners managed the trip over the border to get their cars serviced since then?

Dog Parks, this has been a long wished addition to the town and it was an election campaign issue when the local area picked local council, do readers still wish for the park to happen?

There are grand plans for the Federal Hotel with Bed and Breakfast Accommodation, Food and Drink and the addition for a small cinema but some are skeptical that the plan will be completed, do you think it will?

Polls will remain open until Thursday June 14 and posted in Deni Speaks.

Deni Speaks (31/5/18)

May 31 2018

Over the last couple of weeks, we have asked readers their opinions on a couple of questions on Live Exports, Scott’s Park and Recycling.

Below are the results of the three polls.

Should Live Exports be phased out/banned?

Yes – 81%
No – 19%

What do you think of the Scott’s Park  – BMX Park Concept Masterplan?

Like It  – 54%
Dislike It – 31%
It’s OK – 15%

Will Ipswich City Council’s attempt to end recycling kill off Deniliquin’s recycling hopes?

No – 53%
Yes – 47%

Conclusions 

The support of banning or phasing out Live Exports is in agreement with Sussan Ley who believes the practice should be stopped and will side with the ALP on the issue.

The concept masterplan for Scott’s Park has been met favorably by those who answered the poll, locals hope the rubbish and drug problems that has plagued one or both locations do not stay in the remodeling process.

Voters still have faith in kerbside recycling despite major councils trying to pull out of the initiative due to China changing their rules on accepting such material.

Don’t forget the Return and Earn machines are available to recycle your cans but don’t leave them there if the machines are full, if you have cans you can also go to the Apex shed between 10am and 12pm on June 2.

We’ll be back in two weeks with a new edition of ‘Deni Speaks’.

Deniliquin briefly lost their thumbs

May 18 2018

If you have been wondering why Facebook has been quiet recently, it may have something to do with the fact there is no more of the classic Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down group.

Thousands of posts gone from history just like that and those posts came from thousands of people who were part of the group that rarely had a dull moment.

It seemed to have been a chaotic group, rules were more flexible than a Stretch Armstrong figure, there was a lot of admins and fights happened daily over well everything but occasionally people were told what they really needed to know (locations of used needles, customer service in shops etc).

A business that was given the thumbs down one day were almost assured of getting a barrage of thumbs up posts by the next day and the town quickly learned that criticizing a business was a very bad idea (do it in person instead, problems are usually solved that way).

The group sure had it all in its existence and people no doubt will miss what they saw going on day to day.

But don’t worry readers, there is another group out there to serve all your needs in getting to know who or what the movers and shakers of public opinion are.

So an era ended and a new one has begun, will it be as interesting and chaotic as the last one? Probably not but there’s no doubt it will be informative.
