Lotus Nutter recently snapped this rainbow atop the local Byron Shire Council chambers in Mullumbimby. The Echo drudges were keen to find out what you thought the best caption they came up with was? Or better yet post your caption in the comments section below!

Drudge 1:

The Byron Shire Council took the recent Christmas edition front page of The Echo, depicting unicorns and rainbows, a little too seriously and began projecting rainbows from the top of the main council chambers in Mullumbimby – affectionately known to locals as the Tardis – in an attempt to cheer up the locals after the recent 33.5 per cent rate rise.

The old Irish legend is that there is a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow and Byron Council could only dream of that being the case – though we do on occasion wonder if the entire organisation is being run by a bunch of Leprechauns.

A keen eyed reader spotted this rainbow beaming into the chambers at Mullumbimby – Council can only hope that the preverbal pot of gold will also fall into their laps!

Byron Council chambers have recently been caught emitting EMEs in the form of rainbows.

    Iv’e seen similar colours around large potholes in our roads. Does this indicate that the Council Chambers is a large pothole?

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
