5 Driving Tips To Stay Safe At The Roundabout

5 Driving Tips To Stay Safe At The Roundabout

Some non-Corona Virus advice to get you through the day

The news is full of Covid-19 right now, but there are other dangers in the world that YOU need to look out for.

One of the greatest dangers comes in the form of your very own car (or someone else’s)

Approximately 40% of all car accidents happen at intersections, with most of these resulting in serious injuries.  

Roundabouts, however, make intersections much safer.

Here's how to stay safe driving around the roundabout.

Santos declines NSW Government request for more info about CSG project.

Santos declines NSW Government request for more info about CSG project.

Jamieson Murphy - Northern Daily Leader

SANTOS has been slammed for refusing to provide the NSW government with the requested information about its coal seam gas development near Narrabri.

The gas giant recently responded to the concerns of various organisations, including 14 government agencies, in its Supplementary Response to Submissions.

In the report, Santos refused more than a dozen specific requests for information and commitments from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), the Rural Fire Service, and Narrabri council.

Narrabri farmer and Lock the Gate spokeswoman Sally Hunter said the company had refused the RFS's request to not flare gas during catastrophic bushfire conditions.

"This shows an extraordinary and reckless disregard for the safety of our community," she said.

"Santos has also refused the EPA's request to assess the capacity of landfill facilities to accommodate huge volumes of salt waste with potentially high concentrations of metals and other contaminants.

"It has refused Narrabri council's request that it obtain environmental insurance for offsite and long-term environmental harms, despite this being a recommendation made by the NSW Chief Scientist for all coal seam gas operations."

An NSW Department of Planning and Environment spokesperson said the company's response was being reviewed, in consultation with the relevant government agencies.

"In finalising its assessment, the Department may request additional information from Santos before referring the proposal to the Independent Planning Commission, which will make the final decision," they said.

"The Department wants to ensure a rigorous and comprehensive assessment is undertaken, given the complex nature of the application and the high level of community interest."

Santos did not respond to the Leader's request for comment.

Firefighters save a little kitten's life with CPR after she stopped breathing while being rescued from a storm drain

A tiny kitten has used one of its nine lives after being rescued from a storm drain and given CPR.

The firefighters rescued the kitten and resuscitated him after noticing he wasn't breathing, in Wee Waa, rural New South Wales. 

The crew strapped an oxygen mask on to the kitten and wrapped it in a fireman's jacket as it miraculously recovered.

Boggabri SES sees change of command

Boggabri SES sees change of command

The name Geoff Eather is synonymous with the Boggabri Drovers' Campfire. But what some people may not know is that he has also been instrumental in keeping the town's SES going.

The 78-year-old has stepped down as controller after 32 years in the position and handed the reins to fellow member Victoria Gunther.

It is a fitting transition, as Mr Eather stepped into the position in 1986 after the death of Victoria's grandfather, Norm Patterson, who was "very instrumental in getting state emergency going here in Boggabri" after the 1971 flood in the Namoi Valley.

Boggabri SES new commander Vic Gunther in role her pop first filled

It was almost an accident that Vic Gunther even joined the Boggabri SES, but now she's been named its commander - and it's a title she wears with great pride after her grandfather first filled the role.

Ms Gunther said she initially didn't think she could even sign up, due to having a bone condition.
