IN THIS EDITION:
* The Western Landcare Youth Network is now well protected after Elders Rural donated steel capped boots to assist with their training. Local Landcare coordinator Martha Gouniai said the students participate in a range of different TAFE training, for them to become skilled in a variety of rural and agricultural work. The students, who would soon be undertaking their chainsaw training, were without a pair of steel capped boots which are essential for personal safety.
*Sixteen-year-old Madison White is very excited to be part of the first event to be held in the new Civic Centre. On Friday, August 24, debs and squires will be gracing the floor at the Civic Debutante Ball.
* When the city’s only fishing and camping gear store closes next month, the owners Malcolm and Lee-Anne Hanley will retire and hit the road for a spot of outdoors leisure themselves. The couple started Spot On Outdoors in Oxide Street in 2001 and were hoping to reach its 17th anniversary before shutting the doors for the last time.
* The Broken Hill Annual Championship Dog Show is on this weekend, Aug 11-12, with over 178 breeds entered.
