While the Western Area Health Service has assured in a statement patient care has not been compromised, they admit they are still trying to recruit a nurse to fulfill the duties of the sole local based nurse, Carolynn Hodder, who is now on three months long service leave.COWRA: Cowra High School is no stranger to diversity; in fact it is a school which prides itself on its diverse nature.

Bonnie Keys and Thalia Nelligan were the joint winners of this year's Craig and Colleen Johnston Memorial Performing Arts Scholarship.ORANGE: ON Wednesday Francine Sammut embarks on a lifesaving chemotherapy treatment at Orange hospital, but it comes at a price.

Polpure has applied to expand operations to include septic tank waste, drill mud from mining exploration and agricultural liquid waste.ORANGE: More than 70 young dancers were able to learn from one of Australia’s best when former Justice Crew member Emmanuel Rodriguez held a series of workshops at Stepping Out Dance Factory on Sunday.
