In this special Mildura Edition
of Country capers we list all the winners and grinners from
the Mildura Festival which was once again a great success.
Many thanks and congratulations to John Arnold and his team
for a job well done.
On a sad and bitter note, I must add my commiseration's
and express horror at the murders which occurred yet again
in Bali. The country music industry is closely linked to
the hospitality industry and once again the hospitality
business has suffered the brunt of those shocking explosions.
I believe the only way we can stir the Indonesian Government
to take more action and try harder to track down these murderers
is to totally boycott Indonesia and all it’s goods
and services. Without our valuable dollars this country
Our condolences to the families and friends of those who
died, seriously injured or mentally scarred by this event.
Not only Australians but all nationalities.
Music soothes the savage beast or so the saying goes and
if we can get the World to sing in harmony I am sure a lot
of our differences and hatred will be forgotten.
What do you think?
