Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Growing Mould Together

I love the smell of mould in the morning. Actually I don’t. It drives me nuts. Some days I’m obsessed that it’s all I can smell. It’s the smell of living in the Northern Rivers. The humidity and rain of our summer has created the perfect conditions for mould. Mould on shoes. Mould in my bread bin. Mould in the dark of my cupboards. Mould in the cracks in my bathroom.

Man charged after dramatic hinterland police chase

A dramatic police chase from highway to hinterland bush in the early hours of the morning has led to the expected court appearance of a 26-year-old man today.

Echonetdaily has announced it will provide complimentary space for emergency community announcements for all four councils in our region and the State Emergency Service.

The initiative is the brainchild of Online Sales Manager Stuart Amos, who has been working with Echonetdaily’s technology provider to make it available.

The emergency announcement information would be included in the day’s issue of Echonetdaily, or within two hours notification (during business hours) after publication.

The alerts would also be emailed directly to Echonetdaily’s database, actively alerting readers.

Mr Amos said, ‘The content of the announcement can have hyperlinks to such things as maps and YouTube clips, or directly to a website for up-to-date information, enabling councils and the SES to access affected residents within a short period of time.’
