On Jan. They were so fed up by the failure of the owners and the Homeowners Association to act, they were considering moving. I offered my suggestions and asked you for yours. My favorite was the advice to give the fifth floor residents a dog.
CAMPERS and expectant mothers who are ''caught short'' and swimmers urinating in the surf will risk automatic fines under new laws governing public nuisance in Queensland. Legal experts say the legislation, which State Parliament passed last week, is unjust and unworkable and may even constitute discrimination against people with certain medical conditions, including kidney and prostate problems. The homeless, elderly or bushwalkers caught short off the beaten track could also be slapped with a fine. Where does a person travelling, say, kilometres west of Roma, who pulls on to the side of the road and urinates discreetly stand? Or the person who goes fishing in a dinghy and urinates in a container or over the side?
A court ruling has cast doubt on whether urinating in public is a nuisance - as long as no-one sees. So is it really ever acceptable? You are driving along an unfamiliar country road.
