LETTER:The battle for Morpeth

Nanjing Night Net

WE are dumbfounded by statements by Hilton Grugeon that Morpeth is his town.

Morpeth is not his town and never will be.

He doesn’t even live there (‘‘Trailer park option touted’’ Herald 7/10).

His statements regarding various development proposals from Morpeth Land Company clearly show the tactics of property developers.

Morpeth is a major tourist destination, generating significant revenue and profile for the Maitland area.

Morpeth’s unique attraction comes from its retention of heritage set amidst a peaceful rural setting.

Hilton apparently is not financially involved in the housing estate/trailer park proposal but is happy to give his assistance. Ha ha.

So Morpeth Land Company appears to be threatening Maitland City Council with a trailer park if they don’t get their way?

What is of immense concern is the potential conflict of interest between Maitland council and Morpeth Land Company.

Brad Everett, a director of Morpeth Land Company was, for seven years, Maitland council’s planning director.

If any developers want to try to railroad the residents of Morpeth and destroy our historic village, then bring it on.

We will fight them all the way.

Simon and Alison Brooker,

Cronulla centre Gerard Beale has capped an impressive year for the Sharks with selection in the New Zealand squad for their tour of England later this month.

Beale, 25, was a consistent performer for Cronulla in 2015, forming a strong combination with Valentine Holmes down the Sharks’ right edge.

Beale will look to add to his seven Test appearances for the Kiwis when the tourists play three matches against England in November.

St George Illawarra winger Jason Nightingale was also chosen in the 23-man squad.

New Zealand start their tour on October 23 with a warm up match against Super League team the Leeds Rhinos.

Cronulla winger Sosaia Feki was named in the original New Zealand train-on squad but was not selected in the final touring party.

The Sharks have also signed New Zealand under-18s five-eighth Jackson Ferris, who will link with the club next month.

Tour itinerary for New Zealand

Friday, October 23 v Leeds Rhinos at Leeds

Sunday, November 1 v England at Hull

Saturday, November 7 v England at London

The charity has demanded an international probe into the hour-longstrike on its facility in the city ofKunduz on the weekend, which MSF earlier called a war crime.

“Our patients burned in their beds, MSF doctors, nurses and other staff were killed as they worked. Our colleagues had to operate on each other,” DrLiusaid of the chaos.

The hospitalhad treated nearly 400 people, including some Taliban, wounded in heavy fighting in the days before the attack, MSF’s BrunoJochum​said.

Its GPSco-ordinates had been shared with all authorities – a procedural step that normally guarantees the safety of medical facilities.

The US military said the attack was an “accident”, then called it a “mistake”, but MSF said the US knew exactly what it had been bombing.
