IT’S fascinating how the hit television series “Mad Men”, based on the New York advertising industry of the late ‘50s-early ‘60s, is influencing the fashion looks of the spring racing carnival.

This week’s fun cover photograph of the restless Ivan Slavich and his mission for Movember was taken by SILAS BROWN. Ivan has put his focus and energy on raising funds for men’s health and he’s off to a flying start, as MEGAN HAGGAN discovers. Elsewhere, political columnist MICHAEL MOORE...

THIS week we’re taking a long, loving look at the gone-but-not-forgotten Starlight drive-in. Only the iconic, American-style sign remains beside the Federal Highway in Watson, a mouldering, nostalgic reminder of movie entertainment from another time.

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...

A TAMS transport manager has admitted to the experts at a university symposium what the public has known for ages: “We’re making it as hard as we can right now for people to catch the bus.” ELERI HARRIS was there. MICHAEL MOORE is uncharacteristically warm in his praise of...

IT’S a thundering good issue this week: Political writer MICHAEL MOORE exposes Labor’s poker-machine conflict; TIM GAVEL can’t help himself, he’s back in love with the Raiders and ROBERT MACKLIN discovers that brave is the man who takes on trees. There’s a big guide to the...

DON’T wait until Saturday to see who’s selling what. Starting this week, we feature a directory of every house in every suburb (and beyond) listed with the market-leading real estate sales site allhomes.com.au. We believe it is Canberra’s most comprehensive published listing of properties and prices, and will assist...

CRISIS, what crisis?

MICHAEL MOORE thinks political dependence on polling is corrupting what parties stand for, SONYA FLADUN’s survival seems to hinge on dodging her kids’ debris and ROBERT MACKLIN just can’t escape the influence of “MasterChef”. More of this and lots of that in this week’s edition.
