HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLD BOILER!

Herald

The CHOOK is 25 years old, so happy, happy birthday to the owner and staff of the FREMANTLE HERALD community newspaper. It is a great effort to keep a weekly paper going for 25 years in a small city like Freo, so well done and congratulations Andrew Smith!

The modern day challenges to keep community papers going is enormous, with the advertising dollar getting less, and severe competition from blogs and social media making it much harder to remain relevant and fresh.

The young chook is now and old boiler, but there is nothing wrong with a hearty soup, so hopefully the Herald will publish another 25 years of controversy in Fremantle.
