I have been wanting to mention my dear old mum loved the Independent. Although she was 92, she had very little dementia and read the paper religiously. She had lived in Iluka, Maclean and Grafton over the decades and always found something of interest in the paper.
When we cleaned out her room in Dougherty Villa there were dozens of old copies there, with little notations on stories and ads in the paper that she would share with visitors and family.
In the age of “digital” everything, it is great that the Independent is still serving the Clarence Community.
