Let’s do better job protecting our history this time around

We are assured the population tsunami is definitely on the way for Campbelltown and Macarthur. And if we rely on past experience we can bet on having thousands more fellow residents from Glenfield to Menangle any time soon. What may not come at the same time is the investment needed to create local jobs. Some on the council are carrying on as though very, very soon we will wake up one morning and won’t recognise the joint, but this couldn’t be further from reality. No amount of glossy brochures is going to attract investment, and you don’t need to be… Read more »

Really love what we do, and that’s no bull

Really love what we do, and that’s no bull

Maybe it’s the stories and functions we’ve covered so far in March, but we’ve heard a lot about steering the young people of Macarthur towards trades and away from university degrees. When you think about it there’s a persuasive argument behind it, a certain logic in overturning this idea that everyone has to go to university if they want to succeed in the internet age.

We must kick these goals: our prosperity depends on it

It is rather amusing to read some of the contradictory contributions from some members of the media. One minute it’s “hooray’’ because our university is expanding or a classy new suburb gets the green light. Then you choke on your muesli when they start blabbing about saving the environment, stoppingRead more »
