A man dead after boat capsizes on Ballina Bar

Police have confirmed that a man has died after a boat capsized at Ballina earlier today.

I have lived in Mullumbimby for the last 67 years, I was up early to tow the Lions trailer to the Byron Shire Australia Day Breakfast at Brunswick Heads at 6am only  to find the chain locked at the only driveway near the event, just as well I had a 4×4 so I jumped the gutter why was this not  open on such an important event in are area.

I check the nearby toilets only to find no toilet paper and very dirty and not healthy to use. One day when our shire has about 900 people including locals and visitors for breakfast is not good enough.

While I am on subjects of toilets in Brunswick Heads, the Torakina toilets is a real disgrace and an embarrassment to Brunswick Heads. They should be replaced and upgraded.

I have travelled around Australia and Brunswick Heads public toilets are the worst I have came across. Also why is the toilet block at Pilgrim Park locked? This is always popular with day travelers and also some campers a great shady spot to stop.

Byron Shire Council should get enough money from rates to update the public toilets in Brunswick Heads,.Time to do a little thinking Byron Shire.
