Nimbin Goodtimes

Nimbin Goodtimes Newspaper

Nimbin Good Times is a free monthly newspaper for the vibrant Nimbin community and the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. With over 100 contributors, the content highlights the issues and interests of a creative, alternative culture.

THE NIMBIN GOODTIMES STORY
The founding editor was Bob Hopkins, a prolific writer with a belief that an informed community meant a stronger community, that an open public discussion of issues meant a more thinking and considered group of people that will inevitably cause the community to get beyond the cliches and slogans that permeate and dominate the ‘alternative’ way.

.

Bob Hopkins was succeeded in 1999 by Peter Atkinson, and in 2004 by Bob Dooley, assisted by Sue Stock, drawing together a collection of regular contributors and layout, proofing, support and distribution people. Under this team, the paper has grown from 8 pages with 1400 copies, to a 36-page, 16,000 copy full-colour monster, with distribution throughout the Rainbow Region, from Tweed to Woodenbong, including Lismore, Byron, Kyogle, Casino and Murwillumbah.

The paper grows and evolves. The involvement of new people brings fresh approaches, interesting ideas and new ways of doing things, and the topic of future directions is always open for discussion. As long as we keep the Good Times rolling…

Watch this before you vote! (No, of course we're not biased.)

Sue Higginson -The Greens candidate for Lismore
Promises. Promises. Promises. As one of the most marginal seats in the state, Lismore has attracted 62 promises from the major parties in the lead up to polling day. These promises, for hospitals, roads, schools and clean household energy were made for you with your taxpayer's money. If elected, I'm likely to be somewhere in the balance of power, which means I can be your election promises watchdog. - - - Authorised by N.

Go Sue.

I can’t even listen to promises from the govt as they had 4 years to implement all these things they believe in and waited to election time to make a ‘promise’ of wonderful things to come . not even a signed contract . Who does business that way ? a politician .

Sue Higginson -The Greens candidate for Lismore
As a public interest environmental lawyer, I have devoted much of my life to fighting for regional communities under threat. I’ve taken on coal and CSG companies on behalf of communities and won. I will take my knowledge, expertise and passion to the NSW Parliament and be a strong voice for you and our region. Read more here: https://sue4lismore.org.au/issues/ Authorised by N.

Please read from @GretaThunberg:"Once you have done your homework, you realize that we need new politics. We need a new economics, where everything is based on our rapidly declining and extremely limited carbon budget.
But that is not enough. We need a whole new way of thinking."

Information about the State seat of Lismore for March 23rd election, from ABC's Antony Green.
'There are 'two important first preference vote trends in Lismore. The first is that until 2015, the National Party easily won the seat with a first preference vote above 50%. The National vote crashed to 42.5% at the 2015 election, party support badly hit by the campaign against coal seam gas exploration and extraction. Will National support improve with that issue removed in 2019, or will any gains be cancelled out by the retirement of long serving National MP Thomas George?

'The second trend is the rise in Green support. Labor's vote has been static in the 25-28% range for three decades, with the exception of Labor's wipe-out in 2011. The Greens have finished second at the last two elections, and Green first preference support reached 26.4% in 2015. Will Green support stay high without the coal seam gas issue? The Greens have chosen a high profile candidate in Sue Higginson, but Labor's candidate Janelle Saffin is also very well known as the former local Federal MP.'
(Note: NGT Asst Editor Sue Stock was Greens candidate in 2011 and also campaigned on then little- known CSG issue)

'Lismore will be a genuine three-way contest in 2019. If the National first preference vote does not re-cover, then the party risks losing to whoever finishes second out of Labor and the Greens. It was only the exhaustion of preferences between Labor and the Greens that allowed the Nationals to win in 2015.'
