        We feel it is important to inform you, that in accordance with the government’s policy on global warming and in
 keeping with such terminology as “negative growth” in the economy and balance of payments, we have declared the
 current cold weather to be a “negative heat-wave”. You will soon be hearing more on this from our spin-doctors who we are
 confident can make you warm and comfortable in these conditions.

the Melbourne State College. After graduating , she taught at various
schools in Melbourne where she was “eaten alive”. Not enjoying that
situation, Jo left the teaching profession and set up a printmaking studio
in North Fitzroy. She was the screenprint manager at Red Letter Press
and Another Plant Posters, both community based arts workshops. She
has taught screenprinting in aboriginal communities in northern WA,
Kimberley, Arnhem Land and the Central Desert. Jo was the master
printer for Sally Morgan and Bronwyn Bancroft under Murundoo Studios
in Freemantle.
        Jo has relocated to Tathra and is presently working in pressed
tin, fabric repeat length screen printing, ceramic transfer, dividing
screens, sculptures and limited edition prints on paper. Also of course,
these quirky takes on the cake stand. Jo is a dog lover.

                                           GOT ANY NEWS? SOMETHING YOU
                                           WOULD LIKE TO TELL US ABOUT?
                                             GOT SOME GREAT PHOTOS?
The Triangle would love to hear more about things happening in our area. Are you in a group that regularly does some
interesting things? Even if you think your activities are not that interesting, others may think differently. What is
happening at our local schools, our local churches, our local clubs? Do you have a particular interest in a topic and want
to write about it? Or do you just like to write stories – be they factual, historical or humorous – we would love to receive
them. Got an upcoming community event you would like advertised? Do it in The Triangle!
Please note: If you have an event that happens at the beginning of the month, it is a good idea to advertise 2 months
before, owing to printing and distribution times, your information may not reach the community in time.
Budding photographers – do you have some good local shots. Photos are always welcome, and, as the saying goes “a
picture speaks one thousand words”!
Letters to the editor – we would welcome more from you!
Just a few housekeeping rules:
Articles, stories, community notices to be a maximum of 350 words. Short stories may be up to 500 words. Any included
photos should have a caption – especially if there are people to be named. Photographs to be sent as a JPG. file.
Please, no PDF files as we cannot use them in our software.
All information is to be received by the 23rd of the month. Letters to the editor to be no more than 150 words and must be
signed by the writer with telephone numbers (not published) so they can be verified.
The editorial committee will try and print everything received, but be aware that sometimes priorities need to be
made when space is tight. The committee may need to edit contributions.

                         Contributions be sent via email to: the_triangle2@bigpond.com.
