Not the right hillThe West Wodonga hills area is a gazetted Victorian State Park planned and gifted by theAlbury-Wodonga Development Corporation for passive recreational use.

It is pristine,unspoiled natural bushland including hills, valleys, streams, ferny glades and even awaterfall. It was never intended that this land be developed for quasi-commercial uses suchas competition mountain bike racing. It was to endure for the enjoyment of futuregenerations. There are no car parks, access roads or toilets here.

Change in cycle: Letter writer Ian Guthrie believes Huon Hill would be a better place than Hunchback Hill for mountain bike racing in Wodonga.

On the other hand, the HuonHill area stretching to Killara on the banks of the Kiewa Riverhas been cleared and used as grazing land for more than 120 years, most recently as thedeKerrileau East hereford stud.

This land offers gentle and steep slopes, formed vehicleaccess roads, car parking, toilets and lookout vantage points.

It is publicly owned and wellsuited to use by mountain bike racers with no detriment to our environment.

Common sense says we should put mountain bike racing tracks on HuonHill, notHunchback.

Ian Guthrie, WodongaThe mystery of the ChikoI’ve always been of the opinion that the Chiko roll (Plenty of claims on Chiko Roll, The Border Mail, September 24)was invented by a Victorian, Frank McEncroe, back in the early 1950s.

Michael Riley, WodongaA race well runI just wanted to say a big congratulations to all the candidates who ran for Albury Council election. As a candidate myself, Iwas shown nothing but support from our current councillors and the candidates running.

A massive shout out to all the people who were working at Albury North Public School handing out how-to-vote cards. It was a long day but with lots of laughs and friendly people to stand beside.

As a number two on Bert Eastoe’s ticket, I was disappointed with the outcome for our team (as Bert would make a great councillor for our city) but let’s hope Albury’s choice was correct and we have a great council to lead us for the next four years.

Hayley Franks, AlburyBorder leads the wayAlbury-Wodonga’s inaugural Regional LGBTIQ Health Forum took place at the UNSW Rural Clinical School last week, hosted by Border Medical Association and Hume Phoenix.

It is not often that the medical community and LGBTIQ community come together to discuss health, and having such an event in a regional area sets Albury-Wodonga apart from the rest.

The Q&A session proved the highlight of the night, with discussion ranging from the lived experiences of patients and providing LGBTI inclusive healthcare, to the public health implications of the marriage equality plebiscite.

Shirley Jayasekara, East AlburyAnimal welfare countsIn response to Viv McGee, I totally support farmers who produce “fresh, wholesome, safe Australian produce”.(Hungry with no farmers, The Border Mail, September 29).

But I cannot support farmers who exploit animals for nothing but profit. Needlessly inflicting pain on animals is indefensible.

How you would feel if you were treated the way you treated your dairy cows? Would you like to have your newborn babies torn from your side,year after year? Would you like to be sent off to a terrifying and brutal death in the slaughterhouse when your milk supply waned? Cows produce milk for their babies and not for us.

We humans have absolutely no requirement for a cow’s breast milk and we have no right to steal it from them.
