THIS piece of “whatever” has been poking its head just above street level in Pine Street for several months. Watch the way motorists carefully avoid it because it could cause considerable damage to tyres. It seems to have been accepted as a necessary part of the landscape. But the crucial question is, what is it? Whatever it may be there is a free paddle across Lake Merthley to whomever guesses correctly. Here’s hoping the municipality removes it before someone hits it at speed.
