14 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 2, 2008 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Noisy by Choice winners Inflight Entertainment (and the monkey) take a rest in Burwood Park. Picture: Brad Hunter ~PP197118 Noisy bunch of entertainers THERE was only one point separating Burwood Council's Noisy By Choice winners at this year's Burwood Spring Festival. The finals saw local groups and solo artists deliver outstanding performances, with the public invited to vote for the winning act. The winner who took out first prize, by one point, was rock band Inflight Entertainment. The five-piece group (plus the monkey) will now get the opportunity to produce and professionally record a mastered demo CD courtesy of Megaphon Studios and Benchmark Mastering. The runners-up, who also displayed an impressive performance went to Darker Half, taking home two Cort guitars, one electric and one acoustic, donated by Logans Pianos valued over $700. This was the third year for the Noisy by Choice competition that offers young and unsigned musical talent the chance to play in front of a live audience. Crackdown on smoking intensifies KIM SHAW state parliament www.innerwestweekly.com.au TRANSLATION: This story is translated in Chinese at www.inner westweekly.com.au SHOP displays of cigarettes will disappear and smoking in cars with children will be banned under new rules before parlia- ment. Supermarkets will have six months to comply with the new rules and corner shops one year, before all tobacco products must be hidden from public view. Smoking in a car with a child under 16 years will bring an on- the-spot fine of $1100, issued by police. Drivers will be liable for their passengers who smoke in the presence of a child. Chocolate cigarettes are also out. Selling confectionary resem- bling a cigarette will bring a fine of $2750. Assistant Health Minister Tony Stewart said one in two smokers would die of cancer and the gov- ernment aimed to reduce smoking rates by a further one per cent by 2010. Ninety per cent of health costs relating to tobacco were from second-hand smoke, he said. Mr Stewart told parliament it was vital to discourage young people from taking up the deadly habit and said limiting product displays was an important part of this. The laws came after extensive consultation forums which proved overwhelming support for the re- strictions, Mr Stewart said. Specialist tobacconists will only be allowed to display one of each product line. ''We have made considerable progress over the past decade with the percentage of people who smoke daily or occasionally drop- ping from 24 per cent to 18.6 per cent,'' Mr Stewart said.
