Comment posted More metal theft: Colonsay loses valuable historic bronze plate by Iain McCallum.
If you actually read what newsroom said instead of just defaulting to having a go,I would suggest that they were indicating that whoever had the item could leave it at various places, including an “established yacht club” (ie, somewhere people go and could find it). Anyhoo, how does one get off an island with a 3 foot diameter chunk of metal?

- McDonald’s breakfast advertisement features Argyll
dougie, you might be right, but no-one drags folk from tearooms and cafes into McDonalds. And you can hardly blame them for litter louts dropping rubbish in the street. I live 4 miles from any McDonalds down here in West Wales and still there are wrappers lying on the floor. And in fairness their coffee is better value and taste than some of the coffee chains
- Jock Dempster: hell and healing – two voyages to Murmansk
RIP Mr Dempster. And this government and the last, none of whom deserve to be mentioned in the same breath, should (but won’t) hang their heads in shame at the time it took to present the medals that you and your comrades so richly deserved for your heroic effort on the convoys. How sad that you didn’t get to wear it with pride in public.
- Methadone Clinic issue also to be discussed at Campbeltown Community Council
I have commented on this Methadone subject on another forum and some folk criticised me. I am jaundiced I will admit having spent the last 20 odd years sweeping up the mess left by drug addicts. I am not against methadone clinics per say, but they must be used to wean addicts of the brown stuff. However, I had regular dealing with addicts who had been on Methadone for years, over 20 in one case. Surely the purpose is for it to be used in conjunction with a detox programme to get them off drugs? And they haven’t money for bed for sick ordinary citizens, but they have money for the minority who are addicted to heroin? Seems strange to me, but I am a dinosaur and have a cynical view of the whole drug thing
- Starting at 50 today – count down the days to the Wee Pictures’ centenary
Brilliant. As I said on another thread, the folks in the Wee Toon keep dipping into their pockets and this marvellous Pictures keeps on going. Long may it continue
- Campbeltown Lifeboat Shop – open for 2013 season
Great. Get down there and buy, buy, buy. If any charity is worthy of support it is the RNLI. It should really be financed by the government, but probably best it is not. And as for Campbeltown, as an exile, I say for a wee place, they certainly dig deep into their pockets, week after week and raise lots of cash for lots of causes. As do all of the communities in Argyll. Well done to all concerned wherever you are in Argyll
