45 Sydney-Ballina travellers exposed to COVID-19

Forty-five travellers from Sydney are being urged to get tested for COVID-19 and continue self-isolation on the Northern Rivers after sharing a flight with a confirmed case.

About us, without us

Many of us in the Byron Market community feel completely betrayed by the councillors who last week voted to move us again, like an unwanted jigsaw piece.

W Crompton, Mullumbimby.

Briefly for those millionaires who want to dump tons of rock on the Belongil spit. Matthew 7.26: ‘’Tis a foolish man who builds his house on the sand’. It’s no wonder though these people think they can do as they wish in the Shire. They only have to see the absolutely ridiculous work of art in the middle of the road in, and they would realise the Shire is in the hands of lunatics.

The good thing is the gaudy monstrosity is light and should be easy to remove. Unlike our council, who are heavy and difficult to remove. I wonder if any of the community who approved the artwork had anything to do with the hospital. I like the councillor in The Echo 9/01/19 who says we didn’t know what was going on, we just gave the guy the money and felt important. There has got to be some change to local government before there is an uprising of the ratepayers.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
