Suspicion and belief

Fast Buck$, Coorabell My suspicion is that the mayor and the senior staff have been helping Michael Lyon become electable...

Jason van Tol (Byron Shire Echo letters, July 19) has got his wish regarding the drumming sign on the pole at the sunset drum circle at Byron Beach.

The sign is no longer there. In fact the pole is no longer there, apparently angle-grinded off at the base.

He is correct about the sign having Byron Shire Council’s endorsement. That was what I requested after seeing signs up at all backpackers’, claiming the drum circle as a Byron Bay daily ‘event.’

What concerned me was the fragility of the drum circle with regard to legal terms and asked Byron Council for a ‘drum circle here at sunset’ sign in support of this community.

I also requested some rocks to be moved to the perimeter of the semicircular concrete for seating, and for the rubbish bins to be moved to allow for dancing.

Where the pole and signs have gone is presently a mystery.
