Want to vote for The Beagle as your Eurobodalla Local Hero 2018? Well you can.

The Council search is on for Eurobodalla’s local heroes in a new shire-wide awards program. Nominations are now open for the inaugural Local Hero Award 2018, which recognises the contribution of volunteers to the community and/or outstanding achievements. We think The Beagle qualifies as an outstanding achievement The Beagle, being a newspaper, can't actually be nominated ..... however as the owner/editor/reporter/bottlewasher, I am happy to accept any nomination you lodge on behalf of all those who make The Beagle happen and for what The Beagle is.

Beagle Editor Lei Parker with Sub-Editor Pip

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
