Glad to be here, in Isis

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Matthew McIn­er­ney Re­porter matthew.mcin­er­ney@apn.com.au

WHEN I broke the news to friends, fam­ily and col­leagues I was leav­ing town to join Isis Town and Coun­try, you can work out at which point in the sen­tence peo­ple stopped lis­ten­ing.

The jok­ers came out of the wood­work to show off their Pho­to­shop skills and I re­ceived more than one photo with an AK-47 su­per­im­posed into my hands.

I laughed it off at the time, but since mov­ing up over the week­end I have thought about the po­ten­tial im­pacts a lit­tle more.

How does the name clash af­fect lo­cal busi­nesses? More on that later. For now, I’m ex­cited to have the op­por­tu­nity to share your sto­ries and en­joy ev­ery­thing Isis has to of­fer.

Feel free to visit the of­fice or stop me in the streets for a chat – I can’t wait.
