Better late than never for Nathalia drainage
WEST Nathalia's long-standing drainage problems could finally be solved after decades of Moira Shire inaction, as work is slated to begin this week.
The $750,000 project includes installing underground drainage along Federation Street, and Pearce Street, between Veldt and Hawker streets.
Ripper punching above his weight

Nathalia's third straight
NATHALIA Association Cricket Club defeated Cobram by seven wickets to complete its Simpson Shield three-peat at Cobram on Sunday, and secure three senior cricket premierships for the season.
Terry Colston Medallist, Liam Evans, took six wickets to bowl Cobram out for just 131 in 90 overs on Saturday, which Nathalia made easily, thanks to good innings from its openers, Evans and Tom Nihill.
