About alburywodongaonline

Hi I'm Jack Stone (a pseudonym), I'm a long-time Albury resident and I think it's a great place to live and work. I have a strong interest in local events and media and I started this site because I think a different perspective is often needed when reporting local news. I take a keen interest in local politics, as well as what's going on at the state and federal level, I'm also a supporter of social justice issues, the envirionment and the need for people to have a say in the events that effect their lives. I'm a fan of the Border Bandits and I'd love to see both teams take the flag this year, and next year, and maybe the one after that too.

The problems with drunken anti-social behaviour in Dean street at night are well documented and decades old. Seems they haven’t escaped the attention of Prime newsreader Daniel Gibson who posted a brief tweet on the subject over the weekend. Not so claims … Continue reading

Bigmouth strikes again.

If you’re a Liberal voter in Indi and you oppose a carbon tax you have every reason to be utterly  incensed today. Not because there’s any particular merit to your view, my observation is that the majority of people (although I … Continue reading

Gabriel cooks up a crock.

      Can you spot the prawn? For the life of me I don’t know what French chef Gabriel Gate is on about. His claim that the practice of cooking is somehow imperiled seems to me, well spurious to say the … Continue reading
