Welcome to Issue 64, in which we have plenty of LOCAL news and articles to entertain you. Our Feature is the Federal Budget and what it all means for Longman residents.
I am incredibly pleased to advise you all I now have a wonderful person (who wishes at this stage not to be identified), who is now assisting me with editing. Thank you so much for your assistance M. You have helped us greatly with your experience and knowledge.
Last issue there were a few spelling errors in the paper, and I wish to apologise for this. Hopefully with a new experienced set of eyes, these mistakes will be minimal.
There has been a lot of controversy over our premier not getting the Covid injection last week and I am concerned; only last month we had the premier here hosting a morning tea for our seniors, putting them all at risk with 90 people attending. I am pleased to see the pressure from the media has forced our premier to finally go and get the Covid injection.
On a separate, but very important note, a resident phoned me and advised she had seen a blue ring octopus in the Pumicestone Passage in the vicinity of our iconic museum. Please be careful if you are swimming in that area.
Once again, please support our local businesses and shop local. They’re your friends, neighbours, family and they rely on you, the readers, to support them.
