I NOTE with interest the Agenda article by Alan Middleton ("College closure has hampered the impact of Games on the East End", The Herald, October 18), and wish to correct any misconception that Glasgow Kelvin College is not continuing to support the work begun by one of its legacy colleagues, John Wheatley College, in the east and north-east of Glasgow.
I WELCOME the chief constable of Scotland's new focus on re-educating bad drivers at the roadside, rather than necessarily prosecuting them ("Police target bad drivers in 'stop and warn' clampdown", The Herald, October 20).
