Nightclub nuisance         

Andrea Wong, Nadi

I unashamedly interrupted the sleep of Nadi Town Council’s special administrator by calling him at 3:17am on Sunday, May 10.

I had to advise Mr Robin Ali that I could clearly hear for two hours the music and the screams/chatter/laughter of the patrons on the veranda of the Ice Bar, which is located 150 metres from our home in a largely residential area.

Other residents and I have called, written and met with the Nadi Town Council, the district officer, the Namaka Police and the owner of the nightclub on this matter.

Our complaints date back to June last year, and in October a petition was submitted from our neighbourhood complaining about the noise pollution from this nightclub.

Our neighbourhood includes babies, school children, working people (including shift workers and pilots), elderly people and an orphanage.

We have had to endure countless disruptive nights which impact on our peaceful and law-abiding lives.

On a couple of occasions I have had to delay the start of my working day as I had insufficient sleep the night before, and others in our neighbourhood have been similarly affected.

The authorities continue to allow this one nightclub in Martintar to operate in such an obnoxious manner despite several warnings from the powers that be, yet other nightclubs in the Martintar area have had to comply with regulations.

It is apparent that the Prime Minister’s recent comments about “caution and responsibility” when drinking alcohol, and not creating unnecessary disturbances and violations of the peace are being blatantly disregarded by one business and those who should be administering these issues.

Bravo, Ben?       

Tomasi Boginiso Boa, Nasinu

He did not mince his words. He got to the point which got into the nerves of our boys. What were the boys thinking when they got back into the field?

To top it all never in the history of Television have we ever had  a replay of coach’s words during the game, especially in the second half.

Even the tone of voice completely changed.

This shows we were never serious in the past to encounter such experience our boys performed to what was expected of them. Vinaka Vakalevu Ben.

What would Fiji do if Ben brings the gold medal from Rio? Offer him citizenship, offer him a land, enter his name in the VKB, or whatever you could think of, you better start thinking now!

Vodafone, Fiji One

Joji O Toronibau, Tunuloa

We herald in both hands that all Fijians enjoy live coverage for some specific TV events on Fiji One, FBC TV and Mai TV.

But we at the Tunuloa side of Natewa Bay and perhaps some Maritime Zones and islands will not enjoy the same therapy and reception for Fiji One, FBC TV and Mai TV as enjoyed by the town, cities and sub-peripherals of Fiji.

We missed Fiji 7s World Series every time it’s aired live on Fiji One.

Remember we are so passionate over this side of the islands that once seven years ago our man folks in Tukavesi scaled the hill tops across some pine bushes and portable generators in order to catch some clear reception.

Do you want us to continue these heinous trends?

Having said that there is still no road links for easement of road transportation for our school children since evolution.

Lastly, there is no reception of Vodafone etcetera and you see there seemed to be no development, and please we beg you at the higher echelon of authority to please visit these neglected pieces of earthlings.

Empty beer bottles        

Sukha Singh, Labasa

A friend asked me if I could inform the beer makers to come to Labasa and collect all their empty bottles.

By the way beer bottle collection is the best and cheapest way for Fiji beer advertisements.
