Reader says she will miss the old Times

IT MAY take only one thing to prompt someone to buy a newspaper, be it the comics, the puzzles, the pictures or the stories.

But Shirley Pacey has been reading The Gympie times for all sorts of reasons, and for a long time.

“I do the Sudoku and then it’s all the local news, including the obituaries to see who’s passed away.

“My late husband and I married in 1962 and came here to live.

“That was 58 years ago and his parents read the paper every day for years before that,” she said.
