Monday

AN 18-year-old West Gladstone man was charged over the armed robbery of Rod's Food Market early last month.

A BOYNE Valley family has taken over the Builyan sawmill, reviving the town's lifeblood. The family venture is starting small but it is a start.

Tuesday

TWO property owners who have $26,000 in unpaid rates over three years will have their houses auctioned, unless they come up with the funds.

ENTRIES for the Boyne Tannum HookUp started to flood in after a slow start. The event started on Friday.

Wednesday

TWO eclipses in two weeks and we almost missed out on both. Tuesday's partial solar eclipse was almost a washout in Gladstone as cloud turned the display grey, but then the clouds cleared enough for people to get some great photos.

Thursday

A HOUSE auctioned by Gladstone council to recover unpaid rates failed to sell and was passed in at $175,000, with 20 bidders keen to snap up a bargain.

Friday

SPEAKING for the first time since a devastating collision that left her a quadriplegic, Gladstone three-year-old Abi Wilkinson is on the road to rehabilitation.
