Happy New Year

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon Re­porter jodie.dixon@isistc­news.com.au

IT’S the start of a New Year and the be­gin­ning of new ad­ven­tures.

I hope ev­ery­one had a great Christ­mas with friends and fam­ily.

As for me, I didn’t get a drone from Santa. I in­stead re­ceived a cal­lig­ra­phy set. The only is­sue was I am a leftie and the pen set was near im­pos­si­ble to use in my left.

Who would have thought a pen was made for right-han­ders only?

The set was re­turned and the re­tail staff were not im­pressed with the re­turn. It makes me think, did you get a present that was bro­ken or you weren’t able to use it?

Let us know at Town and Coun­try about your de­fec­tive presents.

The wel­come rain has given the re­gion a good soak­ing. For me I had 300mm and my property is look­ing green and alive.

You have prob­a­bly no­ticed the pa­per is look­ing a bit thin this week. The team at Ru­ral Weekly will be back on­board next week.

I am look­ing for­ward to a new and ex­cit­ing year re­port­ing on events in and around Childers. I will again be avail­able on Mon­day’s, Thurs­day’s and Fri­day’s in Childers and Tues­day’s and Wed­nes­day’s in Bund­aberg.

If you have any up­com­ing events or you have a lead for a story, con­tact Town and Coun­try to get your story out.

I have been lap­ping up the Big Bash 20/20 se­ries. It was shame­ful to wit­ness Chris Gayle’s ac­tions to­wards a sports re­porter.

I can understand why women don’t be­come sports re­porters. It has di­vided the cricket com­mu­nity, what do you think?

Let us know at Town and Coun­try.

Jodie Martin I can understand why women don’t be­come sports re­porters.
