NSW councils call for social, affordable housing

With ‘Intergenerational inequality growing dramatically’, the peak body representing NSW councils has issued an open letter to all federal election candidates, calling on them to commit to a four-point housing plan.

Multi-Platinum recording artists and Grammy Award winners, The Pointer Sisters’ career has spanned three decades with Top Twenty Chartbuster hits like Fire, He’s So Shy, Slow Hand, Automatic, Jump (For My Love), I’m So Excited, Neutron Dance, to name a few. Their repertoire has included such diverse genres from pop and disco to R&B, dance and rock.

The Pointer Sisters have performed with some of the greatest symphony orchestras in the world, toured extensively worldwide. They proved a smash hit at the Night of the Proms, which spanned over 50 sold-out performances throughout Germany, Holland and Belgium, and has secured the group many more successful tours in Europe. In 2004, the group recorded a live CD/DVD, which captured the energetic Pointers performing their hits.

The Pointer Sisters began their formal vocal training in their father’s church. They went on to achieve worldwide fame and have secured a place in pop music history as a dynamic female group! Their first performance in Los Angeles at the Troubadour club was hailed by critics for its versatility and range and called The Pointer Sisters ‘the most exciting thing to hit show business in years’. Their 1973 debut album gave us the single, Yes We Can, Can which reached #11 on Billboard magazine’s pop singles chart. The album was certified gold and the group had become the most talked-about new act of the year.

The Pointer Sisters, best known as the Divine Divas of Pop Music, have constantly been at the top of the record charts for three decades. See the Sisters on Saturday at Twin Towns.

Storylines – Stop the rot and take action

Having spent a long time reflecting on the last 13 weeks since the floods devastated our region, many important issues have come to my attention – loss of homes, possessions, safety, schools suspended from flooding, chaos, death, loss of animals, extreme anxiety and desperation, and so much more.

Review of community response called for as challenges recognised

Local community members stepped forward to help coordinate and respond to the disaster; from people getting into boats and kayaks recusing strangers in Lismore to coordinating local response hubs in the hinterland and local towns. But it wasn't all a bed of roses.
