Northern Star dimming under Murdoch shadow

As democracy advocates and journalists around the world did their best to acknowledge World Press Freedom Day on May 3, in regional Australia, The Northern Star was dimming.

I live in Cleburne County, Arkansas. They have been fracking all over this county for a few years now. Our wells have either run dry or gone bad, animals have gotten sick. I lost a horse when they began fracking on the property that I have them on. I forced them to fence off the water pit they put in.

They are ruining what was once one of the prettiest areas of the Ozarks and they want to frack under our lake here, where we get all of our drinking water from.

This is a nightmare. I was the only one who stood up against them when they came into our county. Now, everyone wants them gone. We had the best drinking water in the whole country at one time, not now.

Government fails to support dying with dignity in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.
