News Limited chairman and chief executive John Hartigan said the book recog- nised the ''courage and com- passion'' of those affected by the tragedy. ''No event in recent history has overwhelmed us with such unprecedented or unim- aginable scale as the Victorian bushfires of 2009,'' he said. ''This book is a lasting tribute to the victims of Victoria's bushfires, to the people who lost their lives and to their grieving families and friends.'' Black Saturday: Stories of love, loss and courage from the Victorian bushfires,ison sale at bookshops for $24.99.

So far, more than $17 million has been raised in the Victorian Bushfire Ap- peal, including $5m that has been distributed to victims. Dodgy eateries named A WEBSITE that details local restaurants' food crimes is now even easier to use, allowing patrons to search by trading name, postcode or suburb. The Name and Shame website was set up after cockroaches, rats and a Band-Aid were found in NSW food premises, while more recently a cigarette butt was discovered in a loaf of bread. ''The NSW Food Authority's website now has a fully searchable online database, which provides consumers with easier access to food law violations,'' Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald said. Since the website was set up in July last year, it has had more than 1.5 million hits and lists 470 premises which have received 800 penalty notices.
