New fire levy ‘impost’
You have more chance of it snowing on Christmas Day in Darwin then have an insurance discount. If government introduced this levy on councils then they should instruct insurance companies to do the reverse.
If the change to collecting the levy from property insurance to rates was explained well, it shouldn't be a cause for concern. I'm for the change, and do think it's much fairer. I have more faith in our local council than I do in insurers.
I paid with for my private house with Youi insurance $87. Now I have to pay for my house $138. How is that cheaper?
Janet Gill’s 100th birthday
Happiest of birthdays. I will always remember your fantastic sense of humour and a gift to tell a great story.
Janet is a beautiful lady who tirelessly worked from a young age as the inaugural secretary for Pambula District Hospital Auxiliary and is still a member today being our patron. I am sure Janet would hold the most years of membership for any local not for profit organisation.
Happy birthday Mrs Gill. Thanks for the lift while I was hitchhiking many years ago.

Pet of the week Kodi

It would be great to see him go to a loving home and be looked after the way he should be
