YOU SAID IT ON FACEBOOK
■ WITH recent statistics indicating that Gympie Police are winning the war against crime in this region, we asked our Facebook friends if they thought Gympie has a rough reputation.
Gavin Kovacs: Been here 14 years. I’ve always loved the place. In every town there are elements. Gympie police do an awesome job keeping it clean. I brought up my kids here and I’m glad I did.
Meagan Clark: Gympie is a dreamboat! We moved here from Logan (or the Bronx as we call it). Never had any major issues. I would recommend it to anyone.
Deborah Jarvis: I've lived here for two years and have had no problems.
■ THE first total lunar eclipse of its kind in 150 years also garnered several comments.
Chris Golley: We are going to Rainbow to experience the moonrise.
Catherine Parker: Think we will hit the beach that afternoon.
