Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ALEX FRESH­WA­TER Has any­one (es­pe­cially kids sport­ing groups) had deal­ings with the new journo at Isis Town & Coun­try?

DEB­BIE WILLS All go for next Satur­day. I am get­ting very ex­cited. There is heaps on, and a huge thank you to ev­ery­one for chip­ping in. A huge thank you to our spon­sors. We have over $1600 in cash and prizes for the Tal­ent Show and Car Show, so well worth en­ter­ing. Heaps of new stalls, a few old ones re­turn­ing. Bash cars will be in fundrais­ing as will a few other groups, so please sup­port them. Ste­warts Buses will be run­ning from Bund­aberg and Childers Taxi will be run­ning back and forth from Childers to the Creek (only).

TRACEY JACK­SON I’d re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate in­put on when would be the best day and time to or­gan­ise a public rally against do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. Would it be bet­ter to do it on a weekday af­ter school so that fam­i­lies can take part? An early evening (with, for ex­am­ple, a can­dle­light vigil for the 62 women al­ready killed this year) or would Satur­day be a bet­ter day? All in­put would be grate­fully re­ceived. What I’d re­ally love to see is the men of Childers get­ting in­volved. The re­al­ity is women and their kids need good men to speak out, to tell other men this be­hav­iour is not okay and to show our kids it’s not okay.

STEPHEN BEN­NETT It’s that time again! I’m hit­ting the road for my reg­u­lar ‘MP Con­nect’ vis­its, and this week I’m head­ing to Childers. Catch me this Thurs­day, from 11.30am at Kape Cen­tro. Have a cof­fee on me! Con­tact my of­fice on 4111 5100.

WENDI GUY We are all strug­gling in this day’s en­vi­ron­ment with in­creas­ing costs so I’ve cre­ated this page where we might be able to help our fel­low neigh­bours with things they may need but can’t nec­es­sar­ily af­ford or pay a high price for. So if you have any­thing to give away that you don’t use any­more or want to sell off cheap that may help some­one else this is the place to do it. I have changed the name on this page so you can now sell items at any price.

RON­ALD WAYNE HA­MANN Well the guide posts on Bootharh Road didn't last long – two bro­ken off all ready, although not the new ones the coun­cil just re­placed. Tracks show some­one is go­ing straight ahead in­stead of the ex­tra three or four me­tres to the in­ter­sec­tion. Wait till the coun­cil puts a deep drain across be­hind the guide posts and see how you like that. Maybe you should just grow a brain.

CHILDERS JU­NIOR RUGBY LEAGUE Don’t for­get the footy break-up. 10th Oc­to­ber at Woodgate shel­ter sheds. Bar­be­cue starts at 11 fol­lowed by pre­sen­ta­tion. Please bring a share plate. Hope to see you there.

CHILDERS FES­TI­VAL What an in­cred­i­ble fes­ti­val. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Thanks to ev­ery­one who came out to Childers Fes­ti­val 2015. We’d like to make it even more en­joy­able for you next year. Let us know your thoughts.

SPE­CIAL EVENT: The 2015 Childers Fes­ti­val.
