    Nanjing Night Net

    Highway Patrol police combined with local general duties police for the operation andconducted 167 roadside drug tests on drivers on Friday and Saturday.

    Of those tested, 14 drivers returned a positive result for illegal drugs.

    All of the drivers were issued with a prohibition notice to prevent them from driving for 24 hours afterwards and police will await further testing of secondary samples before taking any action.

    “The amount of people driving on our roads with illegal substances in their system is very disturbing,” Griffith Police Inspector Anthony Renekersaid.

    “The use of prohibited drugs is bad enough but to then get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle and drive on our local roads is just senseless.”

    One driver was also charged with driving while disqualified, while another was found to be an unaccompanied learner driver.

    ****

    A 12-YEAR-OLD Griffith boy had a lucky escape on Saturday afternoon after the motor bike he was riding collided head-on with a car in Verri Street.

    Police allege the boy was riding an unregistered 60cc motor cycle in a southerly direction about 1.45pm when he crossed onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a vehicle being driven by a 24-year-old Bargo man.

    The boy was thrown from the bike and landed heavily on the side of the road.

    He was treated at the scene by paramedics and was found to have escaped with only minor bruising.

    Police are conducting further inquiries into the matter.

    PEOPLE of all backgrounds came together at Griffith Central on Friday to celebrate diversity in the community for a Harmony Day morning tea.
    Nanjing Night Net

    For the first time, a number of community groups joined together with Griffith Central and the Griffith Multicultural Council to put on a major event to celebrate the city’s inclusive society.

    There were performances by dancers from a variety of backgrounds while year 5 students from St Patrick’s Primary School were taken through a Zumba class as part of the celebrations.

    The morning tea also featured a number of delectable dishes from a multitude of backgrounds.

    Griffith Multicultural Council president Carmel La Rocca said Harmony Day was an especially poignant event for Griffith given the diversity of the city’s community.

    “It’s important because it gives the message that everyone belongs,” she said.

    “That was the point when it was launched in 1999.”

    The Griffith community has had a long association with Harmony Day, with the city being one of two launch towns used to promote the event when it was launched 15 years ago.

    Friday’s event came about from a push by a number of local groups within Griffith to join forces to hold a major event to celebrate the day and to raise awareness within the community.

    Ningana Enterprises day program service manager Christine Tomlinson said she had been amazed by how many people had come together in the name of inclusiveness at the morning tea.

    “I was realy astounded with the groups that were here,” she said.

    “People are saying we want tobe involved next year which is great.”
