Accusations of false dam claims in Cr Cadwallader’s mayoral campaign

Ballina Shire Council candidates against the idea of a new dam in Byron’s hinterland are accusing fellow candidate Sharon Cadwallader of false claims in her electoral campaign.

Police say a man has died following a crash in Murwillumbah overnight.

Emergency services were called to Ewing Street, just after 8pm (Monday June 23), after reports a car had crashed into a guard rail and then into the front porch of a house.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District attended along with NSW Ambulance paramedics who commenced CPR; however, the 59-year-old driver – and sole-occupant – was unable to be revived.

No one else was injured and there was minor damage to the house.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
