Re: Ask Carroll

Re: Coffs Harbour artificial reef plans in limbo

With Sydney running out of sand, theres a thought of dredging sand from out at sea. I'm no scientist but would that not mean that the trenches that are made by the dredges would soon be filled in by sand further ashore and so forth causing coastal erosion?

Re: The national war on bikie gangs

Apparently the Finks in response to being labelled a criminal organisation have patched themselves over to a bigger USA club.

"The worlds deadliest", if The Australian is to be believed and there gonna shoot any cops that pull them over.

Can't possibly be a media beat up!

Re: Finally made the big time. Roxy Pro ad - SEXIST
