A weekly archive of Canberra’s favourite glossy magazine

A TERMITE walks into a bar and says… sorry, you'll have to pick up the punchline from our witty wine writer RICHARD CALVER's popular column on Page 24.
"The ACT Labor Party is basically a gambling business. Through associated companies it, in effect, has the licences to a large proportion of Canberra’s poker machines." The MICHAEL MOORE column, Page 9
"I’m even more opinionated than I used to be, if that's conceivable, because in my 60s I really don’t care what anybody thinks". Irascible as ever, JOHN SCHUMANN calls out ageism in rock 'n' roll.
MUM in the City columnist SONYA FLADUN has been looking at the cartoons on television and, horrified, discovers the wise-cracking rabbits and ducks of her youth have been replaced by nasty, vicious ‘toons. CEDRIC BRYANT becomes Mr Potato Head with a column in praise of spuds, there are four pages of social photos and astrologer JOANNE MADELINE MOORE urges Leos not to be bossy this week! Click on to the digital edition of Canberra’s favourite weekly magazine... Available also on your ipad or iphone.
THREE towering articles by three of Canberra's best columnists – JON STANHOPE, MICHAEL MOORE and PAUL COSTIGAN – again challenge the city's political and planning agenda.
"A PERVERSE outcome of the ACT government’s fixation with high-rise development and its rush to densify Canberra will almost certainly be that the city's ultimate population will be much higher than ever envisaged," writes JON STANHOPE on Page 15.
IMAGINE this: a Canberra couple needs cash to get their business started. Do they call the bank? Not likely. They apply for “crowdfunding” on the internet and raise thousands more than they asked for, much of it from strangers who simply like the idea of supporting a good idea. Best of all, it’s not borrowed money. This week LAURA EDWARDS meets the couple that’s making a good start in Braddon thanks to the phenomena of crowdfunding.
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.
CAN diabetes be overcome? Canberra accountant Gail Freeman thinks so. She tells KATHRYN VUKOVLJAK how she did it. And to prove her versatility, the same diligent reporter previews the opening of the National Arboretum and visits a Burra garden that’ll be open to the public in early February. Tireless snapper SILAS BROWN was with her all the way, too.
THIS week, meet the astonishing Canberra karate champion Reece Cummings. The equally astonishing cover photo of him is by HOLLY TREADAWAY.

CityNews Summer edition 2017
PETS columnist HEIKE HAHNER says that in our air-conditioned world it's easy to forget about how dangerously hot pets can get in the summer. She offers some ideas to help them through the warmer months.

Canberra's favourite gardening writer CEDRIC ‘O’BRYANT’ gets in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day with some craic about this being the time, so it is, to be planting sweet peas. His Welsh ancestors will be spinning! More seriously, MICHAEL MOORE challenges Senators Lundy and Humphries to stand up for...

THIS week columnist ROBERT MACKLIN reveals his daily battle with tinnitus, the endless ringing in his ears that is getting progressively louder. Compelling reading, it’s just a click away...
As always, lots worth reading: MICHAEL MOORE reckons Zed Seselja and the plotters will be back and PAUL COSTIGAN wonders why the Anglican bishop won't talk to his neighbours.
