From the Editor

Welcome to Issue 55,  in this issue there is a wide range of articles from politics, promises .  With the election looming next month we have our candidates pledging their commitment to the seat of Pumicestone with Ali King and Fiona Gaske.   Also, some wonderful human interest stories about taking care on the roads for our local resident wildlife, hidden Emeralds for rainy days, and how our Domestic Violence court in Caboolture is run and much more.

Issue 55 brings an expansion to the LOCAL News now going into Elimbah and Central Lakes.  We now print 24,000 each issue to cover these areas.  Slowly we will be expanding into Caboolture, Morayfield and Burpengary.  We are extremely excited to be expanding the LOCAL News into area’s that do not receive any newspapers these days.

We now offer Free Obituaries, death notices and funerals.  You can submit this by emailing me on , if you don’t have access to a computer please call me on 0447 007 966 and I will work with you to get your notices in the paper.
