What Went Right - 8 JAN 2017
Another three stories about "what went right" (rather than "what went wrong") from the mainstream media.
The do's and don'ts of charity bin donations from those who sort the post-Christmas surge by Elise Scott (ABC Australian Capital Territory)
While this is an article sourced from the ACT, and some parts are ACT-specific, it contains some good overall guidelines for anyone in Australia.
Cygnet Folk Festival kicks on for 35th year, leaving town with no room to swing a banjo by Emilie Gramez (ABC News, Tasmania)
The Cygnet Folk Festival, in Tasmania's Huon Valley, is off to a good start. Lots of photos of artists and buskers, and it sounds like a really good event.
Mr Fujita's photo album: The story of one man's drive to reconcile Australia and Japan after the bombings by Neda Vanovac (ABC Northern Territory)
This is a profile of an exhibition at the Northern Territory Library, documenting the efforts of the Fujita Salvage Company to clear WW2-era wreckage from Darwin Harbour in 1959. It's also an exhibition about one man's efforts to make amends for the actions of his country during the war.
So, there's my three for the day. If you've found anything in your mainstream media feeds about "what went right", why not share a link in the comments?
There's links shared in the comments for 7 January, 6 January, and 28 December, if anyone hasn't seen these so far.
