Lettuce to the Editor

As a writer you never really know what is going to strike a chord with your audience. What will inspire them? Make them think? Make them change their mind? Make them angry? After more than two decades of publishing I am still surprised by what rocks a reader’s boat. About a week ago I discovered that a lot of people have strong opinions on the humble iceberg. I’m not talking about the one that took out theTitantic. I’m talking about the one that has been sinking wallets at the supermarket.

Police Tape

A 19-year-old Tweed Heads South man faces a string of charges related to car theft on the Northern Rivers.

Police say the accused man, along with accomplices, entered an occupied home in North Point Ave, Kingscliff on the 29th of April, stealing a number of items including car keys.

The keys were for a blue Mercedes AMG which police say the group also stole before driving at 200 kilometres per hour and crashing it into another car in the Tugun Tunnel around 4am on Friday 30 April.

Officers say neither the driver nor two other men in the car at the time stopped to help the injured driver of the other car in the crash.

They’ve charged the 19-year-old with a range of offences relating to this incident as well as other stolen car and property offences committed in the Kingscliff and Casuarina area in the past three weeks and an outstanding warrant.
