Byron Shire Councillors vote to raise CBD height

The developers of 33 Lawson Street, Byron Bay, came to last week’s Council meeting asking for permission to breach the building height limit in Central Byron by 38 per cent.

Greg Robinson and Sharon Thompson picked up the honours on Saturday when more than 120 golfers took part in  the Mullumbimby Rural Co–op/Whites Rural Classic golf day at the Mullumbimby course.

The annual event was originally set down for April but was rained off because of heavy rainfall on the day. But all came good for the rescheduled event.

‘The weather on the weekend was as good as it was bad in April,’ Neil Farquhar, board member of the Co-op said.

‘Because of the rescheduling there were a few less sponsors on board, but the course was in great condition and plenty of people came along for the golf,’ he said.

Greg was the best male player with his score of 42, while Sharon was the best female on course with 41 points. B Bartlet was the best non-golfer on the day.

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
