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…

This is the fruit of the native nutmeg (Myristica insipida) from North Queensland. The valuable spice 'nutmeg' comes from Myristica fragrans which grows on a few islands of the eastern Indonesian archipelago. To obtain nutmeg, the seed is dried and ground up. The spice 'mace' comes from drying and powdering the red fleshy aril which grows as a net around the seed. ... See MoreSee Less

Unlike the other recent unmentionable person who's suing!

Anyone does

I was wondering for years why someone didn't take up on this idea.

I don’t think this dude is aware of what planet he’s on 😂😂

He’s not hurting anybody . He obviously has a passion and is following it . I gotta say I’d happily buy one of his bongs if I was still smoking .

Sue-Ann!! 😂

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.
