Mary just keeps on rolling
LIKE Old Man River, the consequences of the failed Traveston Crossing dam proposal just keep on rolling along.
Just as land owners were displaced for the dam, those who rented the same properties from the state government for up to seven years are now a "new generation" of displaced.
Many now hope to stay, if they can find somewhere to live. And people buying those properties as part of the Valley's reconstruction are a new generation of private landholders, with their own still developing agenda for the future.
From source to sea, from Conondale and Cooroy to Tiaro and the Great Sandy Strait, thousands remember exactly where they were on that Remembrance Day, four years ago on Monday, when Peter Garrett stood up to the dishonesty of the Beattie and Bligh state governments.
