VaMEad Here. You have not got many visitors, new site? You have to have money to send your children to primary school. All the extras. Our local school has water bills, ok, then the pipes are old, so P.& C has to raise funds from local community to pay for this, government property.

Society has changed, Coal Mines are expanding, QRail putting in second rail track to Gladstone, but fewer workers with wife & children here, the stay in the bigger centers.

Government and others assume this is a rich community, because the big earners are here. Bah. they are like the foreign sponsored worker, they send most of their money home.

Most of the locals belong to the surfdom class, no chance to higher education.
