Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : December 17th 2008
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, December 18, 2008 MB NEWS 'Tis the season to be jolly careful INNER West party-goers have been warned against dangers of drink spiking this Christmas and New Year. The Sydney South West Area Health Service's sex- ual assault services man- ager Lisa Simpson said re- ports of sexual assault and drink spiking were much higher over the summer holidays. ''Drink spiking can put people in dangerous situ- ations, sometimes resulting in sexual assault, unwanted pregnancy, violent attack and robbery,'' she said. She said some drugs had no taste, odour or visible trace. ''If you feel any strange effects, such as dizziness, sleepiness or nausea, par- ticularly after having only a small amount of alcohol, ask someone you know and trust to immediately take you somewhere safe,'' she said. ''Seek treatment or call an ambulance if required.'' Woman 6 times over with daughter in car CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 4 1 A WOMAN caught drink driving in Haberfield with her toddler daughter in the car was more than six times over the legal limit, police say. The Leichhardt woman, 41, crashed her Volvo sedan into a parked Honda Civic at the intersection of Ramsay Rd and Gillies Ave at 9.30pm on Wednesday. Neither she nor her three-year-old daugh- ter were injured. The woman was breathalysed at the scene and then taken to Burwood police station for a breath analysis. Police say she recorded a reading of 0.320 -- more than six times the legal limit. She was charged with high-range drink driving and had her licence confiscated. She has been bailed to appear at Burwood Court on January 13. Her daughter was given into the care of relatives. 2 A MAN has been charged with drink driving after crashing into the back of a police car at Flemington on Saturday. The new patrol car was damaged beyond repair in the incident, which happened shortly after 1.20am. Two police officers had just got out of the car to respond to a brawl in a Parramatta Rd hotel when the white Mazda sedan crashed into the back of it. The driver of the sedan, a 27-year-old Villawood man, suffered minor facial injur- ies when the car's airbag activated. He was given a roadside breath test and taken to Auburn police station, where he allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.095, almost twice the legal limit. His licence was suspended. He has been charged with mid-range drink driving and ordered to appear before Burwood Court on January 13. 3 A 50-YEAR-OLD Concord West man drowned at a south coast beach after attempting to save two of his sons from a rip. The tragedy took place last Thursday at 4.30pm when Jeff Richmond went to the rescue of his two sons -- Tim, 19, and Ben, 17 -- who were struggling in the surf at Mollymook Beach. Mr Richmond got into the water to try to help but ended up getting into serious difficulties himself. Two surfers managed to rescue the teenagers while a group of police officers managed to bring the father to shore. But despite police and ambulance workers' efforts to resuscitate him, Mr Richmond could not be revived. A report will be prepared for the coroner. 4 A NEW campaign has been launched to tackle crime and improve safety on the state's waterways. Crime Stoppers, the NSW Police Force's Marine Area Command and NSW Maritime will team up to distribute ''Keep Safe'' bags to boating enthusiasts. The waterproof bags will contain fliers providing useful information on how to report crime and seek emergency assist- ance. The brochures will be mailed out to all boat owners and licence holders, waterfront residents and marine berth and mooring holders in NSW. Marine crimes include boat theft, stealing from boats and drug and gun smuggling. Safety issues include alcohol, speed and showing the correct navigation lights at night. weekly news $299 $299 $499 $199 Strawberries 250g 80c per 100g Blueberries 125g $2.40 per 100g Cherries 500g $5.98 per kg Menindee Seedless Grapes per kg $4.99 per kg 34cm TV with DVD Player • 200 preset programs • 4 picture modes: user, dynamic, standard and mild • Multi-language • Sleep timer • 2x AV inputs to connect additional AV devices • Remote control Apple iPod Nano 4GB Silver • Holds up to 2000 songs, up to 8 hours of video or 7000 photos • Shake to shuffle your music •Upto24hoursof audio feedback $159 $149 integrated DVD player shake to shuffle your music 1year warranty 11.2 kg smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 16/12/08 to 22/12/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
