THEspirit

of the peo­ple of In­n­is­fail and sur­round­ing re­gions is won­der­ful to see. As our re­port to­day high­lights, they have come through a se­ri­ous chal­lenge to their lives and life­styles with fly­ing colours — even to the ex­tent of in­creas­ing the num­bers of the next gen­er­a­tion. Cy­clone Larry was noth­ing to sneeze at and the dev­as­ta­tion the cat­e­gory five storm wreaked on the re­gion’s peo­ple, econ­omy and in­fra­struc­ture will no doubt take many more years to re­pair. But the peo­ple of In­n­is­fail are tak­ing it all in their stride and they seem to be do­ing what’s best for them­selves in the af­ter­math of such a tragedy — look­ing to the fu­ture. Ev­ery­one at the

wishes them and their fam­i­lies — as we do all of our read­ers, ad­ver­tis­ers, sup­pli­ers and sup­port­ers across the North — only good things for 2007. We hope you en­joy a peace­ful, happy Christ­mas with loved ones and a re­lax­ing hol­i­day break.
