Have your say

Twelve jobs are to go at the island’s troubled abattoir.

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner has the story on page one.

The main picture on the front page is of the trek to the Tower of Refuge undertaken by hundreds of people on Friday night. There’s a full page of pictures inside, too.

On page three, we report on a fundraising gig for a man from Port Erin who has fallen seriously ill in Croatia.

The Sefton bailout continues to dominate the news. We have a full page on that on page seven.

Meanwhile, we also report that a civil lawsuit brought against ManSat boss Chris Stott has been dropped.

Last week’s Examiner reported the rift between the Bishop and the Lieutenant Governor. There are further rumblings from some well-known Anglicans against him in this week’s Examiner.

There’s a letter about disquiet about the changes in the church and we report on the issue on page 11.

In the centre pages, we have a picture display of the bra dashes.

The main sports story on the back page is cup triumph for Douglas in the rugby.

Our business pages lead on an Australian company taking on staff in the island.

Today’s Examiner has had a makeover. We have new fonts and layout rules. Let us know what you like and what you don’t.

The island’s favourite newspaper is in the shops now.
