Use the online version of the local paper to look for examples of people pushing governments for change, or look for issues that you think need attention. In this article locals are discussing how vacant school grounds should be used. 

Macleod College Library's insight:

When you open this page it will go to the most recent Diamond Valley News. If you then click on the small calendar icon towards the top of the page you can select from up to 2 months of past papers to review.

The Menu option (top right) will allow you to select other papers in the region or search for articles.

A fabulously revealing look from the air over the whole Bundoora area in 1945! Click on any part of the map to enlarge that section. See if you can find Macleod Station and note what is missing! Compare what you find with a current Google map of the same area. Does anything still exist?
