The Federal MP for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie's name was missing from the new Morrison Ministry announced earlier today (Sunday 26 August). Dr Gillespie had been Assistant Minister for Children and Families in the last Turnbull ministry.  He had been allocated that portfolio only last December. Before that Dr Gillespie had served as Assistant Minister for Health and Assistant Minister for Rural Health.

A large crowd of mostly perplexed MidCoast residents were present at Council's meeting on Wednesday 22 August. The vast majority of these residents were expressing their support for a recission motion aimed at overturning a contentious decision from Council's last meeting.
