Our top 10 quirky yarns are on­line

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

THE new year marked six months since I started as ed­i­tor of the Whit­sun­day Times, Whit­sun­day Coast Guardian and the Bowen In­de­pen­dent.

It has been a pe­riod marked by tragedy and tri­umphs, but with the spirit of the new year in mind, I took a look back at my top 10 quirky yarns from the Whit­sun­days since July 2018.

The list il­lus­trates that our fa­mous sta­ble­mates at the NT News aren’t the only ones with a mort­gage on in­trigu­ing yarns.

Two sto­ries in­volv­ing pythons are there, along with a tale fea­tur­ing a croc and a shark in the Proser­pine River, which dom­i­nated the head­lines in Novem­ber. Even Whit­sun­day MP Ja­son Costi­gan pops up with an ap­pear­ance in the top 10.
