Os­car changes it for the Mur­rays

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

JOUR­NAL­IST Paul Mur­ray has called Swan­bourne home for years but only re­ally got to know his sur­rounds when his wife Grace got their dog named Os­car.

Mur­ray says work­ing long hours as ed­i­tor of TheWestAus­tralian, he barely knew his neigh­bours be­cause he was in and out of his front gate, leav­ing early and re­turn­ing late. Os­car changed that. “It changed ev­ery­thing; it changed our ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the area dra­mat­i­cally,” the colum­nist said.

Mur­ray fea­tures in the lat­est Face of Ned­lands piece that fea­tures peo­ple who live in the City of Ned­lands.
