Editorial - Wednesday, May 14: Deadline blows budget
CONGRATULATIONS to Roads and Maritime Services for going ahead with a review of the speed limit at Tyndale.
Since the fatal crash in the village last month, we have run a series of articles calling for a cut in the speed limit.
Originally RMS was relying on a review done in 2013 but after pressure from residents they have decided to look at the issue again.
It is the right move.
- WE WOULD have loved to be able to include coverage of last night's Federal Budget speech in today's Daily Examiner but our deadline didn't allow it.
By the time Treasurer Joe Hockey had risen to speak in the House of Representatives, the Examiner was already on the printing press.
Newspapers have always had to deal with deadlines - at some point each day the paper has to be printed.
While deadlines can't be avoided, the beauty of today's modern media is we can present news on many platforms.
We were able to post budget stories at www.dailyexaminer.com.au last night and will continue to do so today.
In tomorrow's Examiner we will look at the budget's implications for the Clarence Valley.
