Missing the Local Rag.

It might be just my wife and I, who haven’t got a clue what’s going on around our shire since the local free newspapers has disappeared.

We still buy the Sunday Mail but it stories rarely relate to the city that we live at.

There is all this development that is going on near my premises but I haven’t got a clue what businesses or who is going to occupy these establishments.

It was also applicable for people standing for the QLD election......didn’t have a clue about their vision for the area and simply had to vote for the party instead of for that persons aspirations for the area.

you could google them and their policies rather than vote for party

I agree about losing local newspapers. It is NOT a good thing .
Fortunately, so far where I live we still have a local paer.. once a week. That is the only way I know what is happening locally. This is a bad thing for transparency , across a wide field of interests.

There have been 2 locally produced, small and glossy news rags put out by individuals/community groups, but they are just finding their feet. The main Local Paper is free.. once a week .. thrown onto the driveway..

Thank goodness, else to only news I'd get for my area would be roughly ZILCH.

What is THAT all about ? Eh. Encourage ignorance. ?

There is usually a free local online paper in every area... just google to see if you have one... Lucky for us when Murdock bought then sold all the local papers, the staff of our's made a new one out of the ashes and we have 2 local online papers...

Has your wife become a mute? Perhaps you have to learn sign language.

On-Line. ? NO
I don't want to have to hunch over this fucking keyboard, and find my way to News, which I wouldn't trust anyway.

I like PAPER. Not compromised information sources. I know some of the stuff I read IN my local paper is written for various agendas, but you DO actually get a nugget of real information here and there.
