A recent visit to Harrington opened my eyes to The Manning Community Newswhen I picked up the May edition.
I was drawn particularly to the fourth column, front page, Editorial. News of your endeavours in establishing an independent regional voice has had exposure in mainstream media yet the apparent stifling of that voice is little known outside the area of circulation.
Local mastheads have long been the ‘Parish Pump’, reflecting and helping to weave the social fabric of the community. Those who seek to silence the voices of others do not, in the main, reflect the of the majority who deserve a platform for a broad church of thought and ideas.
