Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 20th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 21, 2009 7 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Toilets no place for live crabs FIONA BRADY AN Ashfield fish market has been fined $660 for storing live crabs in the toilets. Jemes Fish Market at 293 Liverpool Rd was added to the Food Authority's Name and Shame list on Tuesday, bringing the total number of fines on the website to 1000. The two penalty notices, each worth $330, were served on the premises on January 21, 2009. ''This is one of the most outrage- ous cases of food storage I have ever heard about,'' Primary Indus- tries Minister Ian Macdonald said. ''It is unhygienic and is just not fair on consumers who pay good money for their food.'' Hercules BBQ at 7 Hercules St, Ashfield, was also fined $330 for failing to ''maintain food premises to the required standard of cleanli- ness''. Inspectors found there was ''an accumulation of grease and grime throughout the premises''. Mr MacDonald said there had been ''a number of disturbing breaches'' on the name and shame list over the past 12 months, including cockroaches, rats, a Band-Aid, and a cigarette butt. ''Fined eateries appear on the website for 12 months and from this week we will see names starting to come off the list,'' he said. ''The vast majority of food out- lets are doing the right thing and putting the public's health first, but the message is clear to those who aren't following the rules: you need to clean up your act or you'll find yourself fined and shamed on the website.'' Budding singer out to prove herself SHIREEN KHALIL Adriana Adamo, of Wareemba, is an entrant in Australian Idol. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP278442 THE Australian Idol 2009 aud- itions kicked off over the weekend and while Wareemba's Adriana Adamo didn't make it to through to the next round, the judges said she had the total package. But it was no ordinary Saturday morning for the 21-year-old singer as the next few hours could ultimately change her life. Ms Adamo, who had never aud- itioned before in a singing contest, waited anxiously for five hours at the Australian Technology Park, until her name was finally called. She belted out Anastacia's I'm Outta Love in front of the show's producer and vocal coach, but unfortunately it wasn't enough. ''It went really good but my nerves took over and came through in my voice,'' Ms Adamo said. ''The judges said I had a great package and a good voice, but I needed more practice with confi- dence.'' Ms Adamo, who has been sing- ing for a little over two years, admitted that confidence was one of her biggest challenges when singing. ''I don't think my voice was that bad, but my nerves took the better of me,'' she said. Ms Adamo works for a child care centre in Haberfield and hopes to be a singing teacher one day. ''I'm already training and that's just observing my teacher do classes and hopefully by the end of the year I'll have my own students,'' Ms Adamo said. The R&B and pop singer said she had always had her heart set on having a music career and plans on auditioning for Aust- ralian Idol again next year. Auditions will air on Channel 10 in August.
