Non-alcohol options

Whether you’re going alcohol-free for a period, or just managing your consumption, the better your non-alcoholic drink tastes, the more likely you are to stick to your strategy. While I’m not a big beer drinker, at my local pub I’ll always grab a beer, and the other night I found the Hiatus Non-Alcoholic Pacific Ale, with its classic tropical aromas, but a little bitterness, perfect for the warm summer evening.

Government amends Biosecurity (Fire Ants) Emergency Order

As the spread of fire ants into the north of the state becomes more apparent, the NSW Government has made amendments to the Biosecurity (Fire Ants) Emergency Order in an attempt to stem fire ant migration.

A man involved in an altercation with police is seeking witnesses to the incident to support his case.

As previously reported in Echonetdaily, John Scrivener was stopped by police at the corner of Manns Road and Station Street Mullumbimby around 2.10pm on 25 October.

An altercation followed and Mr Scrivener was charged with resist arrest and assault police.

At the first court mention in November, Mr Scrivener pleaded not guilty to both charges. He has lodged a complaint with the NSW Police Service alleging assault and wrongful arrest.

Echonetdaily was contacted by a reader who witnessed part of the incident. Mr Scrivener wishes to speak to him and anyone else who may have witnessed what happened.

Anyone who may be able to help can call him directly on 0416 085 223.

Mr Scrivener faces court again on 12 January.

Echonetdaily understands that police have indicated they will not investigate the complaint while the matter is before the courts.
