SHOW AND TELL

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Good news ev­ery­one – Co­conut has passed the au­di­tions for the Full Monty! Who knew that there was a spot in the line-up, so far re­plete with tradie hunks – or hunk-ish ones – for a slightly older, portly gen­tle­man? Co­conut can hardly be­lieve it him­self, though is quite pre­pared to be­lieve his prior act­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – as a crowd ex­tra in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – prob­a­bly did the trick. wasn’t the best one for Jeff, who had to stand down as Lord Mayor of New­cas­tle, hav­ing been caught up in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into al­leged bribery of some politi­cians in the New­cas­tle area. He was never charged with any­thing, how­ever. As it hap­pens, he may be head­ing for some sort of fu­ture reen­gage­ment in pol­i­tics, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal sheets. But not help­ing mat­ters is the fact the cur­rent mayor is try­ing to blame the for­mer mayor (McCloy) and other users for the ex­ten­sive dam­age to the may­oral Toy­ota Camry she in­her­ited and for which she has now put in a bill for re­pairs. Jeff wasn’t at a loss to de­fend his rep­u­ta­tion the other day. He said he had “ab­so­lutely not” dam­aged the Camry. “No, ev­ery­thing I have I keep in im­mac­u­late con­di­tion, my cars, my house, my boats,” he said.
