About AWOL.


Jack Stone (a pseudonym) is a long-time local resident who believes strongly in social justice and environmental issues, he became interested in Citizen Journalism (CitJ) through a long-standing interest in current events, and despondancy at the level of bias in the reportage of some local media sources.

Jack has always enjoyed writing and sees AWO as an opportunity to combine several of his interests and give something back to the community.

If nothing else, Jack hopes to provide an alternate view to the often times politically sanitised, agenda driven, beige coloured coverage of local events he observes in local media.

Jack hopes you will find AWO useful,  informative but most of all entertaining.
