What was important today in that small mining city somewhere west of Townsville

In case you're interested, the lead (online) story in today's North West Star was:
Report finds pound policy not followed
MOUNT Isa City Council (MICC) has finalised the report into the accidental death of the Jack Russell-cross, Biscuit.
Biscuit was put down in February by the council despite her owner, Georgie Martin, identifying and paying for her beloved pet's release.

(The report) found Biscuit was not held at the pound for the required three days before being killed, and noted that this was a direct contravention of the council's policy.
I guess we should be thankful that they didn't run with the headline "Council bully nailed" or similar
