Leg­ends share big mile­stone

Chinchilla News - - OPINION -

THIS week, Chin­chilla News says thanks.

Thanks to two people who have con­trib­uted thou­sands of words and price­less sto­ries to this news­pa­per for more than three decades.

Vince McCaf­frey OAM and Ethel Pri­est­ley, bet­ter known through our pages as the lo­cal leg­ends be­hind the Round the Ridges and Ethel’s Jot­tings col­umns, both turned 90 this week.

And, be­lieve it or not, they share the same birth­day – June 18.

It is an al­most un­be­liev­able co­in­ci­dence that two re­mark­able people came into this world on the same day and have both man­aged to con­trib­ute so much not only to this news­pa­per but also to their towns of Chin­chilla and Miles.

It is people like Vince and Ethel who make this paper what it is.

So, why not fol­low their lead?

Send us a Let­ter to the Edi­tor or a story about what is hap­pen­ing in your patch.

To our won­der­ful Vince and Ethel, thanks.

And happy birth­day.
