Waikato Times letter of the week #73

From the edition of Friday 16 September. As always, spelling, punctuation, grammar and logic are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.
Monumental ideas
I have been wondering where the council is going to put the waterfall?
Wairere, wai is water, rere is falling. There’s no point having Wairere Drive if there’s no monument.
Instead of replacing Founders Theatre, build a “cultural” waterfall. It could be incorporated into the Wairere/Cobham Drive intersection. Ten million dollars would be cheaper than messing around with Founders.
In a strategic location, everyone passing would see it making it the most looked at monument. That should be worth something.
My earlier brilliant ideas were to turn the Hillcrest cycle stadium into an ice rink, and put a mural of an International Airport on the Anglesea Wall – “The steepest airport in the world”.
Both were beyond the combined brainpower of the councillors at the time.
