Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Insights from the campaign trail

The election is almost here. Hooray. It’s time we got down with Elvis Presley’s suggestion of ‘A little less conversation, a little more action, please.’ I’m a big fan of action. I’ve been at this for 14 months, and as a writer who holds the ear of the community each week I’ve been cognizant not to turn this into a hostage situation. For twenty years I’ve talked about politics and social issues and shared insights into my personal experiences, but this is one journey where I’ve had to keep you locked out.

AEC says COVID voters can phone from home

The AEC says that voters who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 will be able to phone in their vote in the federal election.

Organisers hope this will be an exciting and competitive race.

Some of the nation’s best cyclists are set to battle out in Tweed Heads and the hinterland over a gruelling nine-day course from the 28 of November to the 6 of December. The tour will take riders through several narrow country lanes and undulating volcanic hills that the organisers hope will promote exciting and competitive racing.

Following the suspension of the National Road Series due to the pandemic, the National Tour was quickly established as a replacement to offer cyclists a new opportunity for racing and will effectively act as a decider for the winners of the entire 2020 series.

Over 21 teams have been confirmed, including 2019 Road Nationals Champion Sarah Gigante and former Australian Road Race Champion Peta Mullens.

The first stage of the race will kick off on the Black Rocks Bridge in Pottsville at 6:30 am this Saturday. For more information visit NX Sports.
