Game on called for Fa­ther’s Day

Warwick Daily News - - OPINION -

MARK Cum­mins al­ready won the Queens­land Fa­ther of the Year ti­tle in 2012, well be­fore one of his boys, Nick, aka The Honey Bad­ger, started pop­ping up on TV and bus-stop ad­ver­tis­ing – usu­ally in his undies.

But The Bach­e­lor, Nick’s lat­est punt on real­ity TV, isn’t a ma­jor topic in the Cum­mins house.

In Satur­day’s edi­tion of Week­end, in the War­wick Daily News, meet the sin­gle fa­ther who raised eight chil­dren, two with cys­tic fi­bro­sis, and has fought stage four ter­mi­nal prostate and sec­ondary can­cers for the past five years. In Mark’s own words, he’s not sup­posed to be here. But that hasn’t stopped him from go­ing above and be­yond.

Also in­side, pool bars, palm trees, se­cret beaches and an end­less sum­mer – find out why Townsville and Mag­netic Is­land are hot hol­i­day prop­erty in Es­cape.

Plan a sweet sur­prise for dad with break­fast in bed: try our ba­nana and blue­berry pan­cakes.

Insta-fa­mous fit­ness guru and mum Re­vie Jane re­veals how end­ing win­ter hi­ber­na­tion with a fresh ex­er­cise rou­tine can be as sim­ple as putting one foot in front of the other.

Plus, Aussie twins Jonathan and Josh Baker make their big screen di­rec­to­rial de­but in Kin,

adapted from their ac­claimed short film, Bag Man.

All this and more in Satur­day’s edi­tion of Week­end in the War­wick Daily News.
