Penola still a hot spot, virus hits students

A week marked by deaths and sickness. Two retired priests, in Brisbane and Sydney, passed away, a viral epidemic laid low a quarter of the students at an Adelaide Catholic school, and police tried to stop the euthanasia of a 100-year-old man. On a brighter note, tourists are still flocking to the Mary MacKillop centre in Penola (pictured).
