Have you been diagnosed with problems
of the foot, ankle, knee or hip? Are you
disappointed with the progress of your
rehabilitation? Lower extremity problems
can be amplified by or even be caused by
a disturbance in the spine.
Seek a second opinion from experts in
spine care. At Canberra Chiropractic,
we pride ourselves on a thorough history
and extensive examination before we start
treatment. We will evaluate your extremity
problem; however we will always look for
a connection with the spine as well.
Workers compensation, DVA and
transport accident cases may need a
medical referral. You have the right to
seek treatment from the registered health
care provider of your choice. Inform
your GP or Specialist that you wish to
see a chiropractor. It is your body...
your choice. Call 6247 3388 or visit

Nature strip mine
For some time now I have been keeping an eye on the (new)
law of parking on our lawn, gravel, pavers, or concrete.
It has been advised on our car registration quietly for some
This has been tried before about 15 or so years ago but they
[the ACT government] never got away with it.
We should not let the powers to be put it over this time either.
Many householders have spent quite a bit of money looking
after our nature strip , some have their well kept gardens
right to the gutter and they look quite nice.
I have lawn to the gutter, without a footpath.
I have never seen anyone walk on my lawn rather than the
I have never seen pushbikes or prams on it either.
The only time anyone walks on it is to let their dog poop.
May I suggest the nature strip is mine, by possession. I
planted it, watered it and have mown it.
There has been no sign of the owners in 30 years.
Perhaps we should all send a bill for keeping it all tidy, or
just not care for it any more and report it as a fire hazard.
Left alone, what would our national capital look like?
The median strips perhaps?

Public may offer better outcome
Unsurprisingly, there is no indication
from the council that submissions
made will be readily available for public
scrutiny (Submissions due on Ellerton
Drive project, The Chronicle, January 27,
p10). Research is proving that crowd
sourcing has very positive outcomes, so it
will be disappointing if submissions
presented are not collated to provide
positive, and even alternative,
perspectives to the concretised position of
council and developers.
Community consultation sessions, a
term presumably the outcome of focus
group research, does not necessarily
conform to the dictionary definition, as
material available has an aura of flawless
perfection, which were it to be challenged
could subject one to ostracism.
Sessions have been tactically arranged
as show and tell , with ratepayers
dropping in randomly, over an extended
period, to view professionally presented
coloured maps extolling the eager
enthusiasm of road-builders for the
Council claims detecting broad
agreement at sessions, without
qualifying how the conclusion was
reached, challenged opinions of many
viewers who felt uncomfortable in the
presence of those with authority, and all
Many have been disappointed in being
unable to have open group discussions,
where ratepayers had opportunities to
constructively challenge the strengths,
and weaknesses, of the case for the
project, while publicly, on the record,
exploring reasonable alternatives.
Hot-off-the-press figures for traffic
diversion and projected car usage
challenge the foundation on which the
accepted wisdom for the project is
