It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

Remembering Peter Warner

Ballina's legendary man of the sea Peter Warner died doing what he loved best, sailing, during an attempted crossing of the Ballina Bar in rough conditions last week. He was ninety years old.

Mandy Nolan has stated in The Echo, ‘For 30 years I’ve fought to give a voice to the voiceless in our community, now I’m going to take that fight to Canberra’.

I hope that includes vaccine-injured children, and the voiceless parents of those vaccine-injured children. This has been a huge problem. Now the covid vaccine is soon to be injected into folks in our community brave enough to have the covid vaccine, as it’s a ‘gene changing vaccine’ (Dr Sherri Tenpenny, & Dr Lee Merrit).

Death and injuries from this vaccine around the world have been kept conveniently out of the mainstream media – or as some of us are realising, the ‘fake biased news’. Do your own research, don’t believe me.

♦ According to the Federal Government’s health website the RNA from the vaccine does not change or interact with our DNA in any way.

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.


  1. I do wish these antivaxxers get their science write. A little bit of research will show that COVID vaccines use mRNA which does not change the genome! It interacts in the cytoplasm not the nucleus you geniuses. How many people have died from COVID?

  2. I hope these doctors quoted are better than what you quoted them for. More flawed science from the antivaxxers . A quick read of any science textbook would help their understanding of what mRNA does. It interacts with the cytoplasm of the cell not with the nucleus where the DNA is found( our genome);quotes about injured children but no numbers whilst say, in the USA, 500000 have died or is that of no concern? I think some perspective needs to be applied here.
    Was this an editorial as it says by the echo. Don’t tell me you have fallen again into bad habits with conspiracy theories getting published by the echo again and the censoring of those challenging these misconceptions. Over to you the echo.
