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.
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.
CityNews March 9
WHICH name is applicable to a male presiding officer? It's a word of eight characters and "3 across" in this week's general knowledge crossword on Page 17.

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.
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. Elsewhere, Kevin Rudd’s biographer ROBERT MACKLIN says, come what may, the former PM hasn’t changed, columnist MICHAEL MOORE explains why means testing the private health insurance rebate is good for the country’s economic health and MARK PARTON reckons this summer’s been a breeze.
CityNews 4 August
"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.

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.
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...
CityNews 30 March
"NOBODY goes into politics to be in opposition," Alistair Coe tells ROD HENSHAW in a profile piece on the new, determined ACT Opposition Leader.

Digital edition 3 September

IN a surprisingly tender story, ROD HENSHAW goes a couple of rounds with boxing barrister Jack Pappas, who puts his money where his mouthguard is to help kids box their way out of bother.
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...
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.

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...
"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
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.
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.
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.
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. Elsewhere, MICHAEL MOORE reckons public servants are the real nation builders; TIM GAVEL reveals a shameful incident at a Sydney sports meet and KATHRYN VUKOVLJAK visits a sublime country garden.
CityNews June 9
WHO knew of such a calling? The break-up recovery coach. FREYLA FERGUSON meets Joanne Fernance, who sees the possibility of emotional growth even when a relationship collapses.

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. Please click through, you’ll find the digital edition...
