Ghost busters in Pomona

IS THERE such a thing as ghosts?

My children have asked me this question before and I always tell them "no, of course not".

But then, I also tell them the tooth fairy sometimes just fails to meet deadline, and that Coke is okay for grownups.

Like bad BO, talk of ghosts just seems to cling to some buildings.

In Gympie, the Empire has twice recently been "investigated" for ghosts (nothing turned up), there have been "plenty of incidents" at the Gympie Nursing Centre, and a photo is reported to have captured "something" at Kingston House.

The subject drew loads of attention on Facebook last week. Ghost busters will be visiting Pomona soon to investigate a female "presence" at the Majestic Theatre.

Whatever the result, it won't hurt the character and renown of the 94-year-old treasure (there's no such thing as bad publicity).

And it won't stop people speculating on the spooky and the unexplained.
