Why hasn't your page been taken down then? Why make this post as if it has affected you? Other small regional publications are affected so it's very strange that this page is still up given your listing as Newspaper - Media/News Company. This isn't all on facebook. It's on the media giants and the government too. They make huge money out of people going to their websites using facebook as the channel to push that barrow.

Facebook Australia executive Directors should be now be investigated by ACCC, ASIC and the AFP with any offences over its abuse of market power. If evidence is found the Australian Govt should also request the US President and US Dept. of Justice for assistance in this matter including assistance for Australia in prosecutions against Facebook, its executives and ownership including Australian executives.

I say great. No more sad news daily

That statement is incorrect. Facebook feels they shouldn't pay for news they aren't hosting, all they are doing is redirecting to the respective news sites. When Facebook redirects the viewer to a news site, the news site generates income from things like subscriptions, paid links and advertising. Facebook helped mainstream media sites generate over 400 million AUD last year alone by sharing news links.

This is in correct. The Monaro Post The media outlets choose to post their content on the free platform. That free platform rakes in millions for those media companies. All for free. Then Murdoch directs the federal government to make legislation so he can charge the platform he uses for free for their news.....are u on drugs? Maybe you need to #factcheck your information. It makes u look silly. The only person really missing out with this ban is the media and Murdoch through the lost millions via sharing and link clicking!!

Seems they have banned most local news outlets I usually view on fb. And radio stations. Somehow, you’ve slipped thru the cracks.

Facebook should not have news on it if we want new there are plenty of news apps for that

I think it’s a bit late now They should of started last year Before all the poor families of Cooma and surrounds got kicked out of there homes by greedy owners And having to literally move elsewhere to live All for the sake of a quick buck For people who don’t know what that means It means MONEY and GREED🤬🤬🤬

126 beds. 125 operational jobs at the concrete segment plant.. Plenty of work for all the locals as well. 👍

If you owned a house in Cooma and had a renter in you would all put your price up to met the demand (I would do the same) they are investment houses for the owner and more for rent is more of a profit for the investment Not money hungry or greed but Good business to me Like the saying goes Make hay while the sun shines

Well maybe it should of started before it happened 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ people getting kicked out because of more money being offered it’s a joke. Just chuck locals to the curb and sky rocket the rental prices.

The ski resorts should also do this in Jindabyne

About time, hopefully accommodation rents will become reasonable prices again

There will be no locals in there and 126 bed accommodation.... will there be enough parking for them. I bet not

Paul broad is the problem not the solution. Greed...

About bloody time!

There not there today

Too late

This initiative is appreciated but 2 years too late. The lack of vision is sad. Unfortunately our most vulnerable members of the community are the worst affected. Snowy 2.0 is short term gain for this community. When it’s over, and it will end, it will leave no legacy to this region other than less than 20 full time jobs, if that. Snowy Hydro already controls over 50 houses in Cooma. This initiative is not about the Cooma Community it is about the needs of Snowy Hydro. We should change the name of our Kosciuszko National Park to the Snowy Hydro PlayPen. How much of the $4.1B the Fed’s paid the State for its share in Snowy Hydro stayed in the Community it was earned in? 1%.!! Thanks Mr Barilaro you really did well for us😖 And on another point, the transmission lines for Snowy 2.0: Snowy Hydro agreed in 2006 that all future transmission lines would be underground. REASON: Accepted world standard for National Parks to retain their picturesque views instead of ripping 200 meter scars across the landscape. Surprise surprise, NPWS are proposing on behalf of Snowy 2.0 to retain the condition in the Plan of management BUT, exempt Snowy 2.0 from compliance with it. The park is this community’s and region’s biggest assets, summer and winter. But little by little it’s values are being eroded and this communities greatest asset’s value diminished. I am not against the Snowy 2.0 project, but it could have been so much better planned and given far more respect to KNP’s environmental values. It needed to recognized the impacts to this community, and offset them long before they became a problem. No leadership here!! 😞

The local council are dickheads

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically restricted our options with regards to large gatherings, sensibility prevailed and a great time was enjoyed by all.

Coffey’s extend their ladder lead

A Sam Williams century has helped the Coffey’s Hotel Cricket Club extend its lead atop of the Monaro cricket ladder with a 120-run win over the Dalgety Cricket Club.
The overnight rain wasn’t enough to halt Coffey’s momentum with Williams’ knock of 127 propelling Coffey’s to 274, their highest total of the season. A committed Dalgety started well with the new ball combination of Scott Wilshere and Simon Freebody combining nicely to collect a wicket each.
At 2-40, Coffey’s turned to Williams and Dale Cook to steady the innings. The pair put together a nice partnership before Cook was removed by Dave Bartle with Owen Freebody taking an excellent catch at point.
The ever-reliable Nathan Boate entered the fold and with his trademark cover drive in fine form, the run rate began to lift...

Adaminaby duo reach state finals

Adaminaby lawn bowlers Luba Waters and Glenda Daal have had a week to remember, finishing runners-up in the Women’s Bowls NSW State Open Pairs.
After winning three close encounters to reach the final, the Adaminaby duo faced a strong Raymond Terrace pairing, both Australian representative bowlers. In a competitive final, Raymond Terrace accounted for Adaminaby 19/9.

Monaro High School program paving the way

A program helping students complete their Higher School Certificate (HSC) while pursuing a career in the manufacturing industry, has been praised by the students’ parents.
Nine Monaro High School (MHS) students are benefiting from a school-based traineeship with the cohort on track to complete a Certificate 3 in Process Manufacturing.
The traineeship is a partnership between MHS, Future Generation (the lead contractor delivering Snowy 2.0), Department of Education and TAFE NSW.
The traineeship is the result of a pilot program launched in 2020 to help MHS Year 10 students transition from school to the Snowy 2.0 workforce.
A father of two of the students undertaking the traineeship has thanked MHS principal James Armitage and teacher Jackie Fenton for their ongoing help.
“This traineeship is a great opportunity...

Future bright for SWHMC

The future looks bright for regional aged care leaders Sir William Hudson Memorial Centre (SWHMC) in Cooma.
As the industry waits for the release of the final reports from the Royal Commission into Aged Care, SWHMC is positioning itself for a period of growth in service capacity and for an exciting future as the regional leader for aged care services.
Sir William Hudson Memorial Centre has been providing aged care support to the region since 1984.
Despite various building programs and extensions over the years, the building is no longer able to meet the challenges of the future, and it is time for a new vision for the region....

The care provided to both my in-laws and my wife's aunt during the ends of their lives by SHWMC was excellent. I agree that the facilities probably need a major replacement program. There is a major aged care facility down the street from where we now live and they too are going through a major refurbishment and replacement program to provide better quality services to our aging population.

Will they take high care patients?? Or patients with behaviour issues? Because they wouldn’t for us 😡

Instead of spending their money on buildings how about spending it on staff to supply high care. Isn’t that what it’s all about. At least that would stop locals from having to place their loved ones 240 klms away

SWHMC opened in 1982 not 1984.
