A NURSE was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for 18 months and fined $1800 af­ter she re­turned a read­ing of 0.260.

Joanne El­iz­a­beth Cham­bers pleaded guilty to a charge of as­sault­ing or ob­struct­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer while ad­versely af­fected by an in­tox­i­cat­ing sub­stance and to driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

AN EL­LIOTT Heads Rd home was de­stroyed by fire, which po­lice say they will treat as sus­pi­cious.

SUN­DAY

VIS­I­TORS from as far as Mackay flocked to Tegege Sport and Recre­ation Re­serve for the Yes­ter­year Ma­chin­ery Rally.

The re­port, com­piled for the Aus­tralian Sports Com­mis­sion, found watch­ing women’s sports was a low en­ter­tain­ment pri­or­ity, es­pe­cially among women.

Bund­aberg Bears cap­tain Kylie Giles said the decline could cut ju­nior fe­male par­ticip­i­a­tion.

TUES­DAY

A 67-YEAR-OLD Woodgate man was com­mit­ted to stand trial on more than 20 charges in­clud­ing in­cest, rape and in­de­cent treat­ment of chil­dren un­der 16 in re­la­tion to the al­leged sex­ual as­sault of his daugh­ter, adopted daugh­ter and grand­son.

WED­NES­DAY

BUND­ABERG CIB de­tec­tive se­nior sergeant Joe Hil­dred says the strange smell re­ported by Bund­aberg res­i­dents on Tues­day night was not cannabis.

“We be­lieve it was the burning of treated pal­lets of ei­ther pine or tim­ber,” he said.

“Be­cause of the way the weather con­di­tions were last night the smoke and smell stuck around. It was an au­tho­rised burn.”
