Editorial March 18th, 2017

Welcome to this week's Beagle Editor's Choice newsletter As of today we have 9936 regular readers of the Beagle being those who read it three or more times in a week. The analytics show our readers are spread across the planet from the Americas, Europe, The Middle East, South East Asia and even in far off Africa. It is most encouraging that we are able to provide a free news source for anyone, anywhere that has an interest in the Eurobodalla from local politics to local news from each of our towns. In coming weeks the Beagle will be adding more video content with interviews via our new camera and microphone. To start with, we present a short video from the Shadow Minister for Communication, Stephen Jones, who attended an NBN forum in Moruya, hosted by Labor candidate for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips, to alert Eurobodalla residents and businesses that they were about to be sold a lemon with Fibre to the Node. You can read the report of the forum in this week's Editor's Choice via the link below. This week we were given the privileged of presenting a clarifying letter from Dr Krishnankutty Nair Rajesh of Bega, a resident orthopedic surgeon, wishing to offer some light on the recent media stories of Dr Chris Phoon's use of bolt cutters in surgery. This is a must read to bring perspective and context back to the issue. The last week celebrated two long standing competitions in the Shire with Over 35's tennis in Narooma and the Hotondo Beach to Breakers swimming event at Broulee in it's tenth year. You will enjoy the photos of these two events. Whilst on photography be sure to catch up with the much enjoyed Beagle Gallery that also is soon to include the awarded photos from our Eurobodalla and Narooma Photographic Groups. You can find their club reports on our Arts page along with all the Entertainment, Music, Exhibition and Book news covering the Shire and beyond. until next lei
