I present some of the bigger stories from the west you might have missed over Easter. First up, the good name of our fair city was damaged in eyes of some visitors from the motherland. A British couple say they were forced to stay in Australia for five extra days after their passports were stolen while they slept at Cottesloe Beach Chalets in February. "Even in the Congo and Kazakhstan we have never been robbed, so this incident was particularly disappointing” That’s bad. But it can’t be helped by the archaic conditions in which cops are forced to toil out there. Better facilities for police in the western suburbs will be one of the demands put to the state government by the Police Union in negotiations on work agreements. Mike Dean, president of the union, said the stations were "absolutely archaic". He called the Cottesloe police station "a bunch of old mining huts", referring to its demountable office extensions. Arthur Hartley, though, who celebrated his 70th wedding anniversary to Edith Sidwell this week, remembers tougher times in the realm of our former overlords. Arthur said he was an active member of his Freemasons Lodge, and had recently lectured them on the need to modernise. Arthur said he worked as a junior clerk in the City of London for 35 shillings a week. "I left to avoid starvation. London was very unpleasant in 1926. Moving on, a Liberal Senator from Victoria made the long flight over to give couples in the west some valuable advice on their relationships. The person who holds the toilet brush usually does most of the work in a house, according to federal Workforce Participation Minister Dr Sharman Stone. "I think a lot of couples should do a toilet cleaning audit on their relationship," she said. And of course the letters…. Penny Knight is concerned the lives of Perth’s future lawyers, stockbrokers and politicians could be in peril. With the building at the corner of Stirling Road and Stirling Highway, Claremont, now gone, this would be a great time to build a pedestrian underpass to stop Christ Church Grammar School and Methodist Ladies' College students playing dodge with the traffic twice a day. I think their parents should drive them to school in a four wheel drive. I think that would be safer for everybody. This person doesn’t wish to put their name to it, but they think they have hit on a solution to all the domestic violence, property crime, traffic accidents and mental illness in the Claremont area. Instead of verge parking around the Showgrounds being banned, the Show should be relocated. It is not the agricultural show it was originally intended to be but a Luna Park-type entertainment. It should be relocated to an area where there is suitable parking and this would eliminate all the disharmony that has developed in the community. Name and address supplied. This person has some kind of snide point to make When you can count 118 ducks, two black swans and umpteen turtles in Lake Jualbup, Shenton Park, in one lunch break, does that mean that the people who said Subiaco council was stupid last year for thinning out the jungle on the lake were wrong? Fairly happy Subi ratepayer Broadway, Nedlands (Name and address supplied) I really his/her argument would have been strengthened if they had made the effort to actually count the turtles as well. And finally, Ron James of Onslow Road, Shenton Park deserves this week’s paranoia award for his letter. This is a timely reminder as the world faces bird flu and deals with natural disasters. What staff would be available during a major disaster - including doctors, nurses, health workers, police, ambulance and other public servants? Staff may not be available or refuse to work, putting their families first in any major emergency. We need lists of local families and residents who could look after children in an emergency. Retired health workers could be part of a disaster team, using their expertise and skills developed over many years. The need to review pay for disaster situations should be a standard protocol. In New Orleans, there was early anarchy due to not enough police. No there were not. There weren't enough ducks either, and their toilets were filthy.
