Sometimes newspapers print some real tripe!
Today in our local paper I noticed a page 2 headline “Stolen council barrow found at Cardwell jetty” and near wet my pants in excitement!
Fortunately the day was saved by another paper, the Townsville Bulletin, which published this great public interest story! “Let’s hear it for doting dad” by journalist John Andersen is a pearl in an ocean of average today!
Definitely worth a read and I’m not even going to comment as this fine lady has covered most of the bases. My sincere thanks to you Ms Thorsborne and your feathered visitor has my vote for sure!
Great work from the Townsville Bulletin (obviously they don’t suffer from a blight of wheelbarrow thieves down that way). This newspaper has frequently put out decent environment/public interest stories that have gained my attention.
As for the local wheelbarrow story….it is having a close encounter with some vegetable scraps before going on a fascinating journey to the compost bin!
Perhaps the compost will feed a tree that feeds a cassowary on the property….now that would be great recycling.
Before I forget credit to Liz Gallie from cassowary conservation group C4 for the awesome cassowary family photos!
