Farewell to great re­gion

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

THIS week’s edi­tion of Town & Coun­try is a bit­ter­sweet one for me.

I have been able to high­light a few pos­i­tives in the re­gion: a re­cently opened busi­ness in Childers, the re­open­ing of the Mt Perry Ho­tel and a new pro­gram aimed at en­hanc­ing ed­u­ca­tion.

But this week’s edi­tion dou­bles as my last.

Af­ter de­lib­er­at­ing for sev­eral weeks I have de­cided to re­turn to my roots as a sports writer.

I’ll start at Fraser Coast Chron­i­cle on Mon­day, but will un­doubt­edly cross paths with most Isis sports­peo­ple as many com­pe­ti­tions over­lap.

I have to ad­mit it has been a much more ed­u­ca­tional, and en­joy­able, ten­ure than I thought it would be be­fore I moved.

I felt wel­comed by the com­mu­nity, and tried my hard­est to de­liver a pub­li­ca­tion of which the re­gion could be proud.

You can’t get rid of me too eas­ily though, as I’ll re­main an Isis Devil (depend­ing on the ros­ter of course).

Thank you for your help, and I wish you all the best in your fu­tures.
