A PLAN TO unite all three radio stations under the same roof is being considered by government.
Today’s Isle of Man Examiner reveals more about the idea.
The large wind farm support ship, which sheltered in Douglas Bay over the weekend, is the main front page picture, while another page one story concerns a man who has been jailed after assaulting a police officer.
Inside, the government’s deficit figures are revealed. They look worrying, at least at first glance.
We also talk to Allan Bell about the Freedom of Information Bill, which was not on the list of 15 bills for this legislative year.
In other news, as you know, Hop-tu-Naa is coming up. But it’s been a bad harvest for moots (turnips) as you’ll discover on page 5. We suspect Jinnie the Witch is to blame.
On the same page, we ask what the threshold will be for means-tested child benefit.
Further in the paper, we report the findings of the court that looked at Tesco’s bid for an alcohol licence for its proposed store in Castletown.
We also meet a woman who was conned out of £400 by a man whom she ‘met’ on uniformdating.com.
The latest survey into the cleanliness of the sea water around the island also features this week. It looks like things are getting better.
On page 46 we look forward to this week’s House of Keys sitting and the Council of Ministers’ roadshow. It’s off to Port Erin tomorrow.
The back page has Peter Kennaugh on it. He’s receiving an award from the chief minister.
Inside, there’s our usual comprehensive coverage of football, rugby, hockey and a lot of minor sports too.
Our eight-page business section includes a look at one Manx company’s bid to build links with Russia.
Meanwhile, the Examiner also meets the first man in the island to drive and own a Nissan Leaf, the remarkable electric car that’s built in England and is tipped by many to be the future of motoring.
The paper includes all your other favourites, such as the letters pages, Terry Cringle’s column and the social calendar.
And you can also find out what reviewer Angela Gregory thought of Milton Jones.
The island’s favourite newspaper is in the shops now.
