In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Fire ants moving in on Lockyer Valley's salad bowl
They were first found in Greater Brisbane in 2001 mostly spreading through the urban areas of Ipswich, Logan and southern Brisbane.
On Wednesday, Biosecurity Queensland's director Sarah Corcoran confirmed fire ants which devastated American crops are now approaching our Lockyer Valley region.
The Lockyer Valley produces most of Australia's beetroot as well as 40% of the vegetables consumed in Southeast Queensland.
Ms Corcoran said, "It would have serious impacts on the production of the crops if they become established, as they actually eat various crops".
