Our top 10 quirky yarns are online
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.
