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.

SPORTS columnist TIM GAVEL says Canberra should acknowledge the Tour de France champion Cadel Evans in Canberra by renaming the Stromlo Forest Park. His “Campaign Cadel” starts here! Sport, politics and religion abound in this week’s edition – all just a click away...

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.
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.
A HEARTBEAT before the election was called, our veteran political columnist MICHAEL MOORE called it for Labor. This week, Kevin Rudd’s biographer (and “CityNews” columnist) ROBERT MACKLIN says the PM’s a goner, thanks in no small part to Rupert Murdoch. One of our writers is right, but which one? Time will tell.

We took one fabulous dress and persuaded four very different, well-known Canberra identities to model it in the name of Frocktober, the month-long awareness campaign for ovarian cancer. Snapper-to-the-stars SILAS BROWN got a page of lovely photos. For the rest of October, the dress (and the opportunity to have...
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.
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.
CityNews 2 March
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."
"This government is sitting on another planet while residents are being subject to massive damages to the cherished urban fabric of our bush capital," writes PAUL COSTIGAN

Digital edition 11 December

Beyond the flurry of local politics this week, KATHRYN VUKOVLJAK traces the Queanbeyan Bowling Club’s tough struggle for survival; WENDY JOHNSON looks at the renaissance of Manuka; TIM GAVEL sides with a footballer with a conscience and CEDRIC BRYANT has some advice about Christmas trees.

CityNews 1 June
MUM in the City columnist SONYA FLADUN exposes the pain "fake news" is bringing to a very public crisis in her family.
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...

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.
