Missing woman Tina Greer's dad draws strength from Morcombes

    by: Jeremy Pierce
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    January 13, 2013 12:00AM

PHIL Greer doesn't know how the Morcombes did it. For nine years they waited to learn the fate of their son before a breakthrough in Australia's most famous missing person case.

This week will mark one year since Beechmont woman Tina Greer vanished without a trace.

Her father, brothers and daughter are still waiting for answers.

The attractive 32-year-old, whose life had run on and off the tracks over the years, was finally starting to pull things together.

She had reconnected with her teenage daughter, Lili, and the pair had just finished a shopping trip together, buying shoes and supplies for the new school year.

That was on January 18 and Lili, now 14, has not seen her mother since.

Surviving member Barry Gibb will return to Redcliffe for the first time in more than 20 years to unveil a tribute to the career of pop icons the Bee Gees.

Great Barrier Reef could be stripped of heritage status


    By Nick Perry
    AAP
    January 23, 2013 12:00AM

THE Great Barrier Reef could be stripped of its world heritage status within months if action isn't taken to better protect the natural icon from coal and gas developments, environment groups say.

A coalition of green groups today launched the Fight for the Reef campaign in Canberra, warning state and federal politicians were putting the reef's international reputation at risk.

Last year UNESCO was "sufficiently concerned" enough by proposed developments along the Queensland coast it sent a mission to Australia to investigate, the campaign's director Felicity Name Redacted2 said.

It made a number of recommendations to the commonwealth and Queensland governments about how to proceed in the best interests of the reef.

The global heritage body could place the reef - the world's longest coral reef system - on the "world heritage in danger" list if it doesn't receive an adequate response by February.

Message in bottle reaches Perth after 76 years

    From: PerthNow
    January 22, 2013 2:52PM

A MESSAGE in a bottle found 76 years after it was thrown into the sea has been reunited with the family of the Perth man who wrote it.

Sky News UK reports that the bottle was found on a beach in New Zealand by Geoff Flood in November 2012, but had been set adrift in 1936.

Inside was a note, dated March 17, which said: "At sea. Would the finder of this bottle kindly forward this note...to undermentioned address."

Underneath the note was written the name: "H E Hillbrick, 72, Richmond Street, Leederville, Western Australia".

The message had been written on headed paper bearing the mark of the shipping company P&O and the ship's name SS Strathnaver.

TV talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres to fly Aussies to LA

    Holly Byrnes, Leigh van den Broeke and Ian Walker
    The Daily Telegraph
    January 22, 2013 6:51PM

THE trip of a lifetime has ended before it began for one lucky Ellen fan, after the surprised winner of a free trip to the US chat show was unable to fly this afternoon because she doesn't have a passport.

Jennifer Kenyon, 21, had "never imagined" she would win the Swisse/Qantas promotional holiday, or even be chosen to perform on The Ellen Show when she turned up to the live cross at Sydney's Opera House with friend Carly Heading.

The pals had planned to join the masses who answered a callout by DeGeneres to local fans to have their passports ready and bags packed ahead of a surprise giveaway - two tickets on the Qantas flight carrying Ellen's crew back to Los Angeles today.

Sailor's praise for 'miracle' rescue

   ELIZABETH LORD   |   January 23, 2013 12.00am

"A SECOND chance at life" is how solo yachtsman Alain Delord has described his dramatic rescue in the Southern Ocean.

The tired but grateful Frenchman arrived at Macquarie Wharf in Hobart yesterday morning, safely on board the expedition cruise ship MV Orion that came to his aid.

Speaking through an interpreter, Mr Delord praised his rescuers in the Southern Ocean's huge swells.

"For Orion to find me in the whole of the Southern Ocean is a miracle," he said.

"The chance for me to be alive today was minuscule it's a second life that's starting."

The 63-year-old from France spent three days in a life raft after being forced to abandon his damaged yacht on Friday.

He had been attempting to sail without assistance around the world when its mast broke in rough weather 500 nautical miles south of Hobart.

In a 3.5m swell and strong winds, Orion's crew used an inflatable boat to successfully rescue the stricken yachtsman on Sunday night.

Hillary Clinton tries to silence Bindi Irwin on population growth

    By Kristin Shorten
    news.com.au
    January 24, 2013 11:01AM


    Bindi Irwin submits essay to Hillary Clinton's e-journal
    14 year-old says population growth is detrimental to the earth
    Clinton's e-journal edits out all references to population
    Can there be too many Australians?
    Humans a 'plague on the earth': Attenborough

PASSIONATE wildlife campaigner Bindi Irwin has gotten into a biff with one of the world's most powerful women.

The 14-year-old has stood her ground after an essay she was invited to write for US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's e-journal was drastically edited before it was to be published.

The young conservationist, daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, was asked to write 800-1000 words on why she had chosen to devote her life's work to wildlife conservation.
 
The piece was supposed to be published in the December issue titled Go Wild Coming Together for Conservation as part of Secretary Clinton's endangered species initiative.

But after writing exactly 1000 words urging society to address overpopulation, the former first lady's department returned it for final approval with most of it edited out.
