The ghost in the archives #3: Sexism, legal discrimination and ‘the game of bastadry’

The ghost in the archives #3 – In which a former Echo drudge dives into the crypt and comes up covered in dusty memories.

Lorraine Thompson, Byron Bay

Am I the only one who notices the state of the footpaths in Jonson Street, Byron Bay?

It’s our main street. It’s a disgrace; grease stains in front of bins and in front of food shops; also vomit and worse.

At the Community Centre there is a stain on the boards as you walk in. Sand the timber and seal it would be a good idea. It is your front entrance.

The problem has gone beyond a high-pressure hose; it requires steam cleaning.

I’m ashamed. Our town deserves better than this. With all the cosmetic changes going on – come on, Council, this should be a priority.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
