I have just listened on the ABC to a dozen or more medical people - nurses, doctors, specialists - plead with us to stay at home. They are in the front line together with teachers, shop assistants, bus drivers, police, etc.

They deserve our fullest attention and support and so I have decided that the court must close until further notice.

I have been advised:

A video may be released tomorrow on WhatsApp called Martinelli. Don't open it. It hacks your phone and nothing will fix it. If you receive a message to update WhatsApp to WhatsApp Gold, don't click to accept. Don't open a video called "Dance of the Pope". It's a virus that reformats your phone.

I don't have personal experience of any of these but I understand the threats to be genuine. One virus at a time is more than I can handle.

North Arm Cove is developing a Community Plan. All stakeholders in the locality, Non Urban Land Holders, Village People, and Rural Land Holders must be involved.

As the partner of one of the Constitution Subcommittee members, I have listened as many people have called Bob over and expressed their views. A modified quote- “Why do good people hold such wildly differing views and why do others’ views seem so illogical”? It is obvious that we have a broad range of opinions about some of the clauses that need to be in the new constitution and we are not going to always agree.

The subcommittee tried to take a middle path in December and 68% of people voted for the December draft. 75% was required and...
