Welcome to this week's Editors Choice. This week saw The Beagle pass another milestone. We now have OVER 10,000 regular readers who visit the website three or more times per week. The tracking software we have enables us to see where all the readers are around the globe (hello to those reading this travelling presently in Korea, Canada and Mexico and throughout Europe). We are also able to see which sections of The Beagle people visit and it is terrific to find there is equal traffic to Sports, What's On, The Arts and Letters as there is to Your Town pages and the Latest news. So thank you to each and all of you for your support of our new, free, independent news. This week saw some Federal attention to the area. Firstly, those attending an NBN forum in Moruya heard that the rollout out in Moruya and Tuross would see substandard service delivery via The Node when a Kerbside delivery was being offered elsewhere. In response Ann Sudmalis has now offered that, at the time of the proposed work, the best technology available on the day will be used “NBN’s design work is yet to be completed for Moruya and Tuross and as NBN’s website says, the technology planned is always indicative-only while final designs are being completed.” Whatever happens in Moruya and Tuross will no doubt be of considerable interest to the rest of the Shire. The second round of Federal attention came with a visit by Ann Sudmalis and Jane Prentice to the Moruya Yumaro facility. This shire should be proud of what we are achieving via the efforts of Yumaro and all the other organisations rising to recognise and offer inclusion to those less abled in our community. This weekend will also see the handing over of $1000 to by the Tuross Head Fishing Club to the Moruya Surf Lifesaving Club for development and assistance of the "Special nippers" programme. Moruya has a special relationship with the Sydney Harbour Bridge - this week marks the 85th birthday of "The Coathanger" and Lynne Griffiths brings us some great weekend reading and, viewing via links to the National Film and Archives, a tribute of photos, videos and fabulous vignettes.
