LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I wonder if any of your readers out there can come up with a cure for Static Electricity in the body.
My Daughter suffers from it. She cannot touch fridge doors in the supermarket. Even if she goes in for petrol she must wait for someone to fill it for her and sometimes she can get a belt from her car door. If anyone knows how to combat it, I would be very grateful for any advice.
Thanking you sincerely
DOUGLAS TIDY TOWNS
I wish to thank all who supported our Flag Day on Tuesday and all who helped in making it a great success.
It is great to see the footpaths taking shape and the services going underground. This has been done in many other Tidy Towns entrants.
The Street Sweep continues on Saturday meeting at 10.00am to 12.30pm at the Community Centre, Church road, Douglas.
I wish to remind your readers that the best shop front shop for August will be their selection, which must be sent to the Secretary Douglas Tidy Towns Committee, C/o Douglas Community Association, Church Road Douglas, Cork,

PROPOSED ESAT TRANSMITTER
I refer to a letter dated Aug 12th regarding the proposed Esat transmitter at Garryduff Sports Centre, Rochestown. I completely agree with Teresa Brennan. How on earth could a Sports Centre allow a transmitter to be erected on its premises given the many reports suggesting possible health risks? Considering the large numbers of very young children and adults using the centre for tennis, hockey, Summer Camps and the location of a Montessori school in the Clubhouse, it shows a total disrespect by the management of Garryduff Sports Centre for their health and well being.
Is the Club not aware of the Government guidelines for transmitters and their proximity to schools and high-density housing? I understand that the local residents have already made their concerns known to the club but it would appear that financial gain is its priority and mot its members and neighbours. I hope many people will make their views known to the planners.
