Charlie McColl has some explaining to do
While those who think they know him believe that well-known Magnetic Island environmental activist, Charlie McColl, is holidaying in Europe at present, Magnetic Times has, by sheer chance, uncovered the truth and photographed the Magnetic man of mulch, very strangely, at work on a building site in Portland, Oregon, USA.
As the photo, snapped from a passing bus in Portland, by your editor (also currently on leave), clearly shows, Charlie McColl has some explaining to do.
We'd like to know why he is about to attach something to a wall on a near completed apartment block and how has he managed to look a year or so younger? Is it the effect of the way less intense sunlight of this northern city or perhaps its highly-admired, sustainable transport and excellent recycling laws that have brought a little youthful glow to this veteran of the Nelly Bay Harbour campaign? We'd like to know Mr McColl. So if you are reading this during your lunch break, perhaps you could enlighten us all.
