Commenting on the opinion piece: The naked truth about SA’s slice of Saudi golf
Great result for SA tourism, hospitality and golf. For the record, we have had approximately five straight years of the Australian Women’s Open in Adelaide and haven’t had a quality men’s event since 2007. We are the only state that doesn’t have a State Men’s Open! This is a huge get. Well done Mali – that’s the trifecta! – Tony Martin
What a rubbish article. Saudis will not change their politics or their country’s rules because our premier declined to accept Norman’s offer, and what’s Norman standing bare-assed in front of a mirror got to do with it? – William Nankervis
Commenting on the story: InDaily strikes gold at SA Press Club awards
Congratulations to the Solstice Media group for its outstanding return on investment, which saw it receive well deserved recognition at the 2022 SA Press Club awards.
Not only did the Solstice Media group’s flagship InDaily clean up no less than five of the top awards, other group members including CityMag and the unique Solstice Podcasting received due recognition as well.
InDaily’s own coverage of the SA Press Club awards graciously included equal coverage of its media “competitors” and their award successes. Typically, this was not matched by (The Advertiser), which could only find the space to laud its own haul.
As a Solstice Media group consumer of its various offerings, I couldn’t agree more with the comments of InDaily editor Dave Eccles. He modestly, but very accurately, understated: “Our small but committed team spends the time to dig up and shine a light on stories that matter, exploring and exposing issues that authorities would prefer we didn’t.”
I’m firmly of the opinion that without the multi-media presence of the Solstice Media group and its efforts, South Australians would be experiencing media blackouts of a magnitude rivalling our widespread power blackouts. – Philip Groves
Commenting on the story: Why the arts are losing the war for talent
An excellent summary of the current situation. I would add the impact of Covid effectively shutting down live performance for two years. Many on the technical side were forced to find work elsewhere. They got paid more and worked less. Who would blame them for staying away? – John Irving
