RECORD SPEND, RECORD DROUGHT, RECORD NEGLECT

RECORD SPEND, RECORD DROUGHT, RECORD NEGLECT

Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MP Roy Butler has expressed his disappointment in the NSW Government’s budget announcement’s today.

“The Berejiklian Government has celebrated its operating surplus and its record investment in infrastructure across the state and that’s all good - if you forget that western NSW is also part of the state.”

The Barwon electorate is 44% of the state, but hasn’t had a significant school or hospital upgrade funded in this budget.

“All I am seeing in this budget is a continuation of record neglect of western NSW,” Mr Butler said.

What You Need to Know if you Plan to Buy a Car Before The End of Financial Year

What You Need to Know if you Plan to Buy a Car Before The End of Financial Year

Julian Parsons - Sydney

Did you know that now is the perfect time to buy a car?

The end of the financial year is right around the corner and it couldn’t be a better time to buy a new car. If you’re after a good bargain, there’s quite a bit to consider when purchasing a car.

With different financing methods and competing sales rates, there are a lot of possibilities to ensure that you get the best deal. And the good news is that both small-time car dealers and big brands are keen to sell cars at hefty discounts before the end of the financial year.

Oxley police honoured for bravery, service to the force in Tamworth, Gunnedah, Narrabri, Wee Waa

Narrabri and Wee Waa.

Similarly, Sergeant Darren Wallington and Senior Constable Scott O'Brien were honoured for their work in dealing with a siege that unfolded in Wee Waa.

The officers arrived to find a man had barricaded himself in. They started negotiations but the man had doused himself in fuel. Their work saw the situation successfully resolved and the suspect taken into custody, unharmed.

Officers from Wee Waa, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Tamworth and across the wider Oxley district were recognised for their brave actions as well as the years they've dedicated to the force - some of whom notched up 10, 20 and 30 years in the job.

'Devastating news' as Walgett's only supermarket for 80km is gutted by fire for the second time

The New South Wales town of Walgett is battling gruelling drought and is today hit with another blow as the community's only supermarket goes up in flames.

Key points:

  • Walgett's only supermarket, IGA, has been "severely damaged" by fire
  • Firefighters have been on the scene of the active fire since 8:30am
  • The town's nearest supermarket is now 80 kilometres away

NSW Fire and Rescue have declared the IGA Supermarket building completely destroyed after battling the active fire on Fox Street since 8:30am.

There have been no reports of injuries.

It is the second time the building has been damaged by fire after it was first destroyed in 2013.

NSW Fire and Rescue acting superintendent, Greg Wright, had previously stated that at the very least the building would be severely damaged.
