Look out South Golden Beach and Mullumbimby residents, your roads are about to be improved. Council staff say the major road upgrades and reseals are thanks to the NSW government’s $25 million Roads and Infrastructure election commitment. It was one of many promises made by the Nationals candidate, Ben Franklin, who is everyone’s best friend representing a terrible government. He lost against incumbent Greens MP Tamara Smith in 2019 owing to a strong Greens vote in Byron Shire and Labor prefs to the Greens. The Guardian reports that news organisations have been fined more than $1m for contempt of court over reporting of the sexual abuse verdict surrounding Cardinal George Pell. It reads, ‘Pell was found guilty of child sexual abuse charges in December 2018. Although that verdict was ultimately overturned by the High Court in April last year, at the time it could not be reported on because the high-ranking Catholic official faced a second trial over a different set of allegations’. This is despite the case being reported on by overseas media organisations. Hypothetical question – you find cash on the ground in an envelope with a birthday card. No-one’s watching, what do you do? One local put an ad in The Echo’s Lost & Found classifieds page and the envelope is waiting for its owner at the Bruns Police Station. The Land Forces arms expo at the Brisbane Convention Centre wrapped up last Thursday, which attracted protesters. Seasoned activist Benny Zable was on hand to remind the public that the trivialisation and normalisation of an industry that causes death and suffering is perhaps not a particularly enlightened path for the human species to be taking. Last Thursday was Mabo Day, when Eddie Koiki Mabo is remembered for his part in overturning the fiction of terra nullius in the eponymous landmark decision of the High Court of Australia. NSW Nationals deputy leader and coal loving, climate wrecking goon, John Barilaro, is apparently suing political comedian and YouTube star Jordan Shanks, aka Friendly Jordies, alleging defamation. Despite it being leaked widely to the media, Shanks says he is yet to be served – and is desperate to be, so he can presumably make as big a fuss as possible. Meanwhile, Defence Monster Peter Dutton is suing refugee activist Shane Bazzi for defamation, proving that despite his reptilian appearance, the spud actually has a very thin skin.

Yay –The Echo turns 35, and has not only survived, but prospered through seemingly endless turbulant headwinds. As we are completely independent and free of corporate agendas, The Echo can call out the hypocrisy and the conflicted, absurd human condition, while celebrating its finest potential. For that entire 35 year history, a tireless small crew of locals have not strayed from these ideals. See Echo co-founder David Lovejoy’s editorial, page 10.
