Wheels of all sorts
NUMURKAH became alive with shiny chrome and revving engines, when all varieties of cars, bikes and buses rolled into town for Dyson’s IGA Show Us Ya Wheels on Sunday.
Show Us Ya Wheels president Tim Jenkins said this year’s exhibit numbers were up, with 450 entries on show, and he estimated around 5,000 people came through the gates.
Crowds flocked to hear 10,000 horses fire-up when Mildura’s Darren Morgan started his top fueller dragster, which he said was the fastest of its kind in the world.
Thieves hit local charity
THIEVES broke into the PALS op shop and stole children’s toys set aside for Christmas, and then left a pile of human faeces at the back door, which staff described as a “dog act”.
PALS disability support worker Pat Finnen said she had noticed the back shed had been broken into and goods were missing or damaged, when she arrived for work on Monday morning.
What a Ripper!
NUMURKAH boxer Jesse Ripper has just beaten the Kiwis in a trans-tasman invite-only bout on Saturday, after he took on an opponent with nearly four times more experience than him.
The 16 year-old light heavyweight was invited to fight across the ditch in the amateur young guns bout, after he took out a silver medal in the Australian titles earlier this year.
