We love sharing good news - and this week there was a great story to tell.
As journalist Elspeth Kernebone wrote, RMIT University is expanding its pilot training course to Bendigo, and student pilots will start training at the airport this year.
It's another sign of confidence in our city, but also another reason why we need further government investment in helping Bendigo build a new airport terminal - a project high on the City of Greater Bendigo's wish list.
Another story close to the hearts of those of us at the Addy is the plan to restore the grave of our founding editor, Robert Ross Haverfield.
As journalist Tara Cosoleto wrote this week, 30 years after Mr Haverfield's death, his final resting place at Bendigo Remembrance Park is crumbling and in urgent need of repair. In late 1853, when Mr Haverfield moved to work at a mine near Bendigo, he was arrested and imprisoned for an hour over a misunderstanding around licence regulations.
That arrest was the catalyst for a career in newspapers. After angrily denouncing the Goldfields administration, Mr Haverfield invested in a printing plant and worked to produce the first issue of the Bendigo Advertiser and the Sandhurst Commerical Courier.
Now, his descendants are trying to raise money to restore his grave through a Go Fund Me page.
