ICYMI, the Liberal-Nats NSW government quietly made it legal last week for rural landholders to clear up to 25 metres of bush from their boundary line, without an approval or assessment of ecological impact. It was not recommended by the Bushfire Inquiry. In other news, WA will end logging of native forests from 2024. New Scientist reports, ‘mRNA cancer therapy now in human trials after shrinking mouse tumours’.
In case you are interested in replying to Craig Kelly’s insane ramblings and his unsolicited texts, his new phone number is 0429 493 241. His last phone was over run by spam, apparently. Good riddance federal Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon, who will not contest the Hunter electorate at the upcoming election. As a fossil fool, he tried to block any meaningful move towards renewables. A reminder completing the Census is compulsory under the Census and Statistics Act 1905. A press release from the ABS says those who do not return their forms can be prosecuted and fined up to $222 a day. Macadamia Castle owner Tony Gilding has announced his retirement, along with the sale of the castle to notfor-profit company, Wildlife Recovery Australia (WRA). Settlement is expected September 30. The press release says, ‘WRA will build on the significant legacy of conservation and animal welfare work conducted by Tony and the dedicated staff over many years’.
Volunteer run charity, Liberation Larder, operating out of The Byron Community Centre (BBCC) on Fletcher Street, has been running continuously for 12 years, and since COVID-19, their operation has had to change and no longer can the clients be seated and served. All food prepared in their kitchen is now served as takeaway, twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. They rely on donations from generous sponsors and organisations, as well as local businesses and the kindness of local residents and the community. To donate or volunteer, visit www.liberationlarder.org. Photo Jeff Dawson
