The paper is privately owned by Neil and Ann Lomas who have been producing free weekly newspapers in the North-North West Toowoomba Regional Council area for more than 20 years.
Neil’s 50-year career in newspapers started at the Western Star, the local paper in his home town of Roma and includes stints at the Toowoomba Chronicle, Gympie Times and the Warwick Daily News which was judged the best regional daily newspaper in 1988. Along the way, he spent a number of years lecturing in journalism at the University of Southern Queensland where he obtained a Research Masters in Journalism.
