Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 25 2008
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 26, 2008 NEWS BRIEFLY Building design award STRATHFIELD Council is calling on land owners and developers who have created high quality new buildings and developments to nominate for the inaugural Strathfield building design awards. Established to recognise new developments that maintain and enhance Strathfield's high standard of architectural design, the council also wants to reward developers who have ensured quality design. Nominations have been divided into a variety of categories including residential and commercial, and entry forms are available from the council, libraries and www.strathfield.nsw.gov.au Drugs affect drivers ONE in 38 drivers was affected by illicit drugs, Roads Minister Eric Roozendaal told parliament recently. But Christian Democrat MLC Gordon Moyes suggested the figure may be much higher. Rev Moyes said research by the Australian Institute of Criminology found as many as one in four drivers admitted to driving whilst under the influence of illicit drugs. Mr Roozendaal said random roadside testing for drug driving, introduced in 2006, had surveyed 6500 drivers across 53 separate operations and only one in 38 drivers had returned a positive reading. Walking challenge IF trekking 96km through some of the roughest terrain on earth sounds like fun, then apply for the The Kokoda Youth Leadership Clubs Challenge. The fully-funded trip will take eight people aged 16 to 22 to walk the Kokoda Trail with a trek leader and several guides. The club believes the experience can bring about a deeper appreciation of both the suffering and heroics of the Australian soldiers who fought in 1942-43. The trip is over 10 days from September 27 to October 7 and applications can be found at www.clubsnsw.com.au or email firstname.lastname@example.org Call for firefighters THE NSW Fire Brigade is looking for people from all walks of life and backgrounds to become firefighters. We are seeking applicants who are team-oriented, community minded and physically fit, and who enjoy helping people. The recruitment drive is offering 160 places.
