Digital Edition

A weekly archive of Canberra’s favourite glossy magazine

Digital edition 20 December

“MEN are uniquely unsuited to the business of politics. It should an occupation reserved for women.” Crazy or courageous? ROBERT MACKLIN makes his argument in our final, fabulous edition for the year.

"HAVING rorted the real estate and retirement income systems to the utter detriment of the wider nation, please excuse us if we don’t want to hear more about your moral superiority." Columnist JOHN GRIFFITHS is heartily sick of rude, old people.
GREAT reading awaits: JON STANHOPE says it's time to get cracking on affordable housing; CHRIS COLEMAN sees injustice in the impending dog-racing ban and TIM GAVEL scores a rare interview with Terry Snow.

THIS week, “CityNews” launched a new website aimed at providing Canberra with continuous local news, weather and other information as well as the full variety of news, views and features you enjoy every week in the magazine or the digital edition.

"APART from its immaturity, the ban by ministers on dealing with ClubsACT, together with the proposal to raid the community contributions of its member clubs, sets a dangerous precedent," warns JON STANHOPE
TWENTY-something sisters Carla and Emma Papas, from Fadden, created a healthy food blog late last year that is attracting huge interest from all around the world. LAURA EDWARDS has the story.

CityNews 6 October
“I TOLD my doctor I’d broken my arm in two places. He said stop going to those places.” RICHARD CALVER's hilarious wine column endures Father's Day... and dad jokes.

Digital edition 30 November

THERE'S a lot of talented women in Canberra and this week, in our annual salute to the city's women in business, we feature 10 pages of professionals you can trust.
THE grass is coming back to Green Square. After being chased by reporter LAURA EDWARDS for a response to an August letter from the Kingston traders unhappy about the square’s reviled drought-proof plants, the Chief Minister’s office told us on Monday they’d – ahem – “mislaid” the letter. By the time we published the story, this morning they have magically conceded to the return of the lawn. The Liberals are in lather of self-congratulation, but it was “CityNews” that was making the noise, Steve Doszpot.
It’s often the little things that help make a paper great. For instance, this week arts editor  HELEN MUSA reviews a play, “The Dark Side of Midnight”, that she reckons is worth seeing; we’ve given a byline to budding journalist (and work-experience student) RAFIQA FATTAH, who spent a week...
"ANDREW, Shane, Yvette and the rest have ordained that it’s a south-facing, two-bedroom flat on the tenth floor for those aspiring homeowners who used to be Labor's traditional base," growls JON STANHOPE
CANBERRA’S first radio station, 2CA, celebrates its 80th birthday on November 14 and this week we present a nostalgic spread of old names and faces likely to bring back fond memories. Elsewhere, TIM GAVEL writes about an inspirational athlete, who has gone from novice to triathlon champ in only a year; ROBERT MACKLIN fears an Abbott Liberal Government will mean bad, bad news for Canberra and CEDRIC BRYANT gets his head out of the plants to look at some of the hard aspects of gardening. Lots to read, lots to enjoy, only a click away...

Digital edition 3 September

CityNews 2 February
SADLY, after years of writing for "CityNews", we are publishing this week the last of ROBERT MACKLIN'S insightful and beautifully written "Seven Days" columns. A bad chest infection has meant he must lighten his workload, though he has promised to continue to contribute from time to time. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Rob.
THE bravery of breast-cancer survivor JOANNE BURCH and the artistry of photographer ANDREW CAMPBELL have conspired to create a compelling cover of confronting beauty.
OUR beauty editor LIBBY HILL agreed to put her face on the line when she was invited to experience the latest in laser treatments. How did it feel? Her report starts on Page 22.

ANA STUART is our new, primary photographer. This week's cover to illustrate LUCY ALEXANDER's fine story on fear-free vets is her first for us. It's a great debut. Welcome, Ana.

IN a big call, Pets columnist HEIKE HAHNER says: "Living without animals maybe more hygienic, less stressful, easier, cheaper or simply more convenient, but it's not normal."
MICHAEL MOORE hails a public servant who admits a mistake; TIM GAVEL looks at ways to get people out to winter games and Joe Roff tells DANIELLE NOHRA he has $500,000 to give away.
