A red and white anti-hunting in national parks sign on Church St was recently annotated with a message saying it was good Barry O'Farrell had stepped down. I'm glad he's gone, but ask myself what this truly means for our national parks. What powers will the Shooters and Fishers lobby now crave? Will new NSW Premier Mike Baird support them? The proposal to allow hunting in Morton National Park may well raise its ugly head once more. LJ, May 6 2014.


When I'm wandering throughout Bundanoon's green and pleasant lands, I'm always meticulous when it comes to staying off private property. So, I was less than impressed when an old bloke on a bike cross-questioned me about my intentions when I was birding two weeks back. He told me I was on a private road (not so) and basically not welcome. I tried to stay as polite as possible. What really got to me is that he ignored me completely when I greeted him. What is that? Save the vitriol for the real trespassers, mister. I relate this story because I was shocked by the man's 'unBundanoon' attitude. This is such a warm, welcoming town. LJ, May 6 2014.
