Nimbin Goodtimes

Nimbin Goodtimes Newspaper

Nimbin Good Times is a free monthly newspaper for the vibrant Nimbin community and the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. With over 100 contributors, the content highlights the issues and interests of a creative, alternative culture.

THE NIMBIN GOODTIMES STORY
The founding editor was Bob Hopkins, a prolific writer with a belief that an informed community meant a stronger community, that an open public discussion of issues meant a more thinking and considered group of people that will inevitably cause the community to get beyond the cliches and slogans that permeate and dominate the ‘alternative’ way.

.

Bob Hopkins was succeeded in 1999 by Peter Atkinson, and in 2004 by Bob Dooley, assisted by Sue Stock, drawing together a collection of regular contributors and layout, proofing, support and distribution people. Under this team, the paper has grown from 8 pages with 1400 copies, to a 36-page, 16,000 copy full-colour monster, with distribution throughout the Rainbow Region, from Tweed to Woodenbong, including Lismore, Byron, Kyogle, Casino and Murwillumbah.

The paper grows and evolves. The involvement of new people brings fresh approaches, interesting ideas and new ways of doing things, and the topic of future directions is always open for discussion. As long as we keep the Good Times rolling…

This is a collection of TV news reports about the impending closure of the Casino to Murwillumbah Railway in 2004. Note how the State and Federal Nationals were fully supporting rail transport back then! Don Page wanted more trains!

Took the words out of my mouth...

Yep, hate them

Thanks for the reminder Nimbin GoodTimes ... I mostly do queue but sometimes I get impatient if I've only got a few items but now I will stand in the queue for the workers! <3

As soon as thire two in front of me I ask for more cashiers,,,never use selfe chechout,,fuck um,,

I have social anxiety and having the option to buy groceries without having to speak to anyone has made my life so much easier

Self check out makes shopping less stressful for this Autistic person, and many others. Also frees up an employee to do other tasks, like helping disabled and elderly customers to their car, or focusing on quality customer service.

Also less awkward when buying potentially embarrassing items... 😬

So Thomas knew about this and did nothing. Such loyalty from a Nat to his constituents.🥛🐄LISMORE MP SAYS NORCO DECISION WON'T AFFECT LOCAL DAIRY FARMERS 🐄🥛

Lismore MP Thomas George says he's disappointed by the health decision to dump Norco as a major milk supplier, but it won't affect local dairy farmers.

The Nationals Party member says the decision was the result of a public tender process by HealthShare New South Wales.

Mr George says he was made aware of the outcome six weeks ago, and has been lobbying for the decision to be reversed.

"Norco have assured me that this won't affect the milk volume and the production from producers," he said.

"However, I will certainly continue to argue with HealthShare and have discussion with the Minister to see if there's any way that they can provide Norco the opportunity to re-apply."

Mr George says he will also be calling for future government tenders to put more weight on local companies.

Clearly the National Party doesn't support the dairy industry in northern NSW.

So ......who scored the money !!!!!!

What a dick.

Maybe folks should check into his investments if they are on the public record.
