The Waterline News Grantville
Welcome to the February edition of The Waterline News. This month we have all the usual features, with apologies for a couple of feature stories we had to hold over until next month. This included the book review segment, which will be back next month with a chance for you to win a popular new release by John Clarke. In October we said “The NBN is coming – do not panic!” Gordon Chase, from Chase Computers says “According to the NBN roll-out map, if you can get the Waterline News locally, you should be able to also get an NBN connection with only a few exceptions. All the good things about the NBN are still true and depending on your choices, free phone line rental, cheaper phone calls, faster internet and more of it are all available once you connect. And there's the rub. We are increasingly hearing stories of people left without internet or phone during the transition, lost home phone numbers with new home numbers provided or worse still, no phone at all. For the unfortunate few experiencing these difficulties it is a major inconvenience requiring many phone calls to the provider so as to explain the problem and verify that a solution is on the way. This is not a fault with the NBN even though everyone who knows anyone with issues loudly proclaims the NBN to be the problem, the real problem is your service provider, the company that bills you every month for your internet connection. So how to avoid these inconveniences? Take your time – you have at least 9 months left (& we suspect the initial rush of connections and teething problems will be dealt with within a month or so) Be patient, ask your friends and neighbours about their experience and with whom. Seriously consider changing providers if you suspect your provider is not coping, is overwhelmed by issues and complaints due to a reduced workforce and increased expectations”.

The Waterline News is edited and produced by Independent Journalist Roger Clark from Grantville who has more than 40 years experience as a journalist, mostly in the sporting arena but he has also had considerable experience with community and local tourism newsletters in both the Yarra Valley and Tarwin Lower/Venus Bay in past years. Over the past two years he contributed feature stories on various topics and then took over as editor of the Bass Valley News. Roger has a passion for Community development in the Grantville and District area, acted as the flagmaster for the Memorial Park for three years, served on the Cemetery trust for four years and is keen to develop The Waterline News as an independent local community magazine free from the restraints of being tied to any one organisation.
