Blog Watching: Week ending June 5, 2016
A recent entry in the real estate listings ran away with the views this week on the blog, as our item related to the prospect of the Galaxy Gardens restaurant proved to be one of the most popular of our items in recent weeks.
Scrambling for the rest of the news flow on the week were three items related to LNG development in the region or the proposed LNG terminal at Lelu Island. Through the week our review of a letter from scientists urging the Federal government to reject the proposed site, attracted a strong audience. As did our pieces related to some feedback on LNG development from the residents of Gladstone Australia, bringing the LNG theme to an end was our look at Mayor Lee Brain's appearance as part of a panel at this weeks Nation2Nation conference in Kitamaat.
Education managed to grab a bit of space as well, with our Thursday item on plans from SD52 to recognize the departing staff members of 2016 and those reaching benchmarks in service gaining a strong audience as well.
However, the top item of the week focused on the convergence of the city's restaurant and real estate scenes with our look at the arrival of Third Avenue's Galaxy Gardens on the For Sale listings.
