A farewell, from the Editor

Monthly Chronicle - - News - Jenny Bar­lass

It is over two years now since I took over the reins of The Monthly Chron­i­cle.

Dur­ing that time I have writ­ten about un­pop­u­lar de­vel­op­ments the com­mu­nity has some­times halted and some­times not, NorthCon­nex with all its amal­ga­ma­tions, sui­cide and men­tal health is­sues, home­less­ness, elder abuse and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

For every story that ap­peared to cast a shadow I have en­deav­oured to bal­ance that with news that shines a light on the good and the pos­i­tive in the won­der­ful shires of Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai, and the armies of peo­ple work­ing to make these ar­eas bet­ter, cleaner, greener, hap­pier or more eco­nom­i­cally vi­able.

From lo­cal, state and Fed­eral to com­mu­nity groups, sport­ing clubs, lo­cal ra­dio, arts bod­ies, and those like HKWS or Hornsby Con­nect all mak­ing this part of Syd­ney a bet­ter place.

While I’ll be go­ing on to pur­sue other in­ter­ests in the me­dia, I thank you for help­ing to make the pa­per what it now is. I ask that you con­tinue to pro­vide the Chron­i­cle’s ed­i­to­rial team with news and ideas so the pa­per can carry on shin­ing a light on what’s im­por­tant to you.

All the best,

With Min­is­ters Vic­tor Dominello and Matt Kean at last week's Cham­ber of Com­merce net­work­ing night
