News from down home

It’s always nice to see your hometown in the news, isn’t it?

I just spotted this story in SMH:

Residents of a Queensland city are likely to be nursing big hangovers today after a second attempt at staging the world’s biggest pub crawl.

Thousands of drinkers crammed into 16 different pubs across Maryborough yesterday for another crack at the quirky title, which was set in the Fraser Coast city in a world first attempt last June.

When I was young, the city had the worst youth unemployment and youth suicide rates in the country. It’s good to see that they’ve cracked those problems and can now move on to the really serious challenges.
