Supporting "Tara" in Narooma

Dear Editor,

I don't normally write to the editor, but in regards to the Tara apartments of Harvey Ball, what happens to freedom of speech? What happens to our freedom?

The bold initiative should be embraced, not attacked, as it brings true Australian spirit to the front. The signage, if you like it or not, creates provocation, however not necessarily negative, but positive. The discussion will bring more interest to the cause of helping others in Narooma. I highly recommend people look deep into the initiative and the meaning behind it, before blowing things out of proportion. The signage of any business can be a personal choice in this free country and what Harvey brings to the town is special and kind.

With patience and hope.

Post Script: Unknown people have thrown a plastic bag filled with paint at one of the signs at the Tara Apartments on the Princes Highway, Narooma sometime between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. The paint has damaged the sign and the attached lighting. If anyone saw anything suspicious or has any information, contact Narooma police on 4476 2044 or Crimestoppers in 1800 333 000.
