Year in review: Baw Baw's big stories for 2012
 Baw Baw News  

By // 17:12, Wednesday 2 January 2013

A LOT happened in Baw Baw last year.

Council issues dominated with the 2012 Baw Baw Shire Council elections, falling pine cones and several earthquakes shook the news and issues on the Gippsland rail line saw services suspended several times.

The Victorian Government budget cuts threatened local TAFE providers and superannuation funding issues caused the Warragul Outdoor Pool project to be put off not long after its adoption.

The year was also The Warragul Citizen’s first full year publishing online. The paper published its first print edition in June 2011 and started regular coverage online some months later. These are the big stories from TWC’s first full year online:
