Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 9 2008
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 10, 2008 NEWS BRIEFLY Give aid to officer A FUND has been set up for the Inner West- bred policewoman whose family were killed in the triple murder in Cowra earlier this month. The Police Association of NSW are asking for donations to help the Senior Constable who grew up in Mortlake. The 31-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, lost her mother, seven- year-old son and five-year-old daughter in the attack. She herself was seriously injured, but has been released from hospital. Her 69-year-old father has been charged with the three murders. It has been reported that the policewoman attended St Mary's School in Concord, Mortlake Public School and Burwood Girl's High School. Donations can be made at any Westpac Bank branch or by internet transfer to BSB number 032834, account number 159970. Second driving offence A FIVE DOCK man is facing jail after he was caught driving while disqualified for the second time this year. Gregory Wayne Robertson, 53, was disqualified from driving for two years in January and was handed a suspended six-month jail sentence. He was caught behind the wheel again last week in Bonar St, Arncliffe. He also gave a false name and address and presented a fake licence. He pleaded guilty to three charges in Central Local Court last week and was granted bail to appear at Burwood Local Court today. Magistrate Michael Price said that given Robertson, of Kings Rd, has already been handed a suspended jail sentence he is likely to receive either full-time imprisonment or periodic detention. Crashed while on duty TWO police officers crashed into a telegraph pole while responding to an altercation at Auburn over the weekend. About 12.40am on Saturday, police from Flemington local area command were conducting general patrols around Auburn when they noticed an fight involving about six people at a fast food restaurant on Parramatta Rd. The officers intervened and requested additional resources. The two male officers were responding to the call and were driving along Silverwater Rd when the accident happened. They were taken to Westmead Hospital for observation. During the altercation, two males were arrested and taken to Auburn police station for questioning. Investigations are continuing. Charged with fraud A WOMAN will face court on fraud charges after allegedly selling false airline tickets. Police will allege the 32-year-old travel company director took payment for false airline tickets. It is understood the woman was trading at Earlwood without a valid travel agent's licence. To date, 12 people have complained and police expect more to come forward. The woman has been charged with eight counts of obtaining money by false or misleading statement and has been bailed to appear at Burwood Court on July 29. Ashfield police are urging anyone who thinks they may have been issued a false ticket or has information, to contact the ticket supplier, Ashfield police on 9797 4099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Home for aged Chinese ONE of Ashfield's heritage mansions has been restored to serve as a Chinese aged care home. Last month, UnitingCare announced the completion of its conversion of Gallop House into the Quong Tart Aged Care Facility. The mansion was originally built and owned by 19th century Sydney merchant and importer Mei Quong Tart, and architects were enlisted to ensure the development of the 63-bed, facility catering for elderly people with Chinese background were in keeping with the original design.

The Strathfield South Community and Library Centre is a project that I have always been in support of as the current branch library at Edwards Park is not only past its serviceable life, but has never adequately provided facilities that allow members of our community to participate in meetings, activities, classes and functions. This new facility will provide community members in Strathfield South with expanded library and community services including access to books, and digital services and meeting room facilities. To keep disruptions to branch library services to a minimum during the construction of the new Strathfield South Community and Library Centre at Edwards Park, Council is currently organising alternate arrangements for Branch Library users. These will include current Branch Library users being offered Strathfield South Community and Library Centre Sunday 20 July 9.30am-12.30pm Rotunda, Strathfield Park FREE World Youth Day Papal Mass Telecast NATIONAL TREE DAY / FAMILY FUN DAY Sunday 27 July 10:00am - 1:00pm FREE Hudson Park Oval Arthur St, Strathfield FREE CHILD RESTRAINT CHECKS Bookings essential.
