Matt Bowen is pumped

A much bigger Matt Bowen bench presses in the Cowboys gym. Matt has really changed his upper body strength during the off-season and is ready for a big 2007.

Baz hits Bowen

I spent a couple of nights in Bowen this past week looking at how the town is changing and its preparation for the upcoming Baz Luhrmann movie "Australia" starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Got a nice two page spread in the Sunday Mail and this front page exclusive of Baz on Flagstaff Hill, Bowen. I thought I would grab a coffee from the cafe on top of Flagstaff Hill before I drove home and Baz happened to be there having a production meeting. He was busy as a beaver but managed to spare a couple of minutes out of his schedule for a few photos. Well done Baz!

Flooding in the North

I travelled down to Giru yesterday to cover flooding in the area. This tow truck driver had a big job on his hands attached his chain to a stranded vehicle just off the road at the A.I.M.S turnoff. Along with a crew from Channel 9 we made our way into Giru via helicopter, the only means of transport that would get us there. The tiny township was seruisly flooded but, like always, they took it in their stride as it is nearly an annual occurrence.
