she depends on how old as children.

It is like being in a haze, it is

all blurry and I cannot make out a

lot of things. She is waiting for

cataract surgery but doctors have

told her that she will be deeply

planned before the operation

because there is a 12-month waiting

list. My children are suffering

from this. If something happens to

them I can't drive them to a doctor

Tory hospital. For she is in the

Blue Mountains with them to

transport options, just like Mark

Hodson. He will lose his driver's

licence later this year. He will be

legally blind as well. My whole

life will change entities already.

I am very concerned. Both patients

can't afford the $4,000 that the

operation would cost in a private

hospital. The longer the wait, the

more complications that the surgery

could involve. The opposition pins

the problem on the premiere. This

is a no-brainer. The Government

should provide the resources so

that these patients can be treated

now. Kristina Keneally will not

make any resources available. The

hospitals will get to these

patients as needed. 20,000 people worldwide are bracing for the

surgery. I'm just horrified that it

could get that bad. H&E accelerator

Security forces in Thailand are

arsonists as a night time curfew

assured his country that he had

curiosity. The situation remains

tense but even though the

as a champion of equal rights. All

we want to say that in player -- a

level playing field. He was quick

to distance the club from his

player's comments. I think he has

made the comments on the basis of

his thoughts, it is not perspective

of what we think as a club. He has

sparked off average by saying they

should not come out. I'm not sure

that other players would be ready

for it and I think there's been a

little bit of gay hunting where we

are trying to get people to come

out. Other football identity Tees

have joined the condemnation. Be

could be forgiven but to hear that

into this and 10 there is bizarre.

I think there are different

characters in different football

clubs. His comments came on the

same day as a launch of a survey

into homophobia in sporting

institutions. There's a great deal

of willingness and enthusiasm for

sport. People want to participate but cannot.

Daniel publicly came out only weeks

A police have broken up an alleged

drug network through a series of

dramatic raids. Armed detectives

swooped on this house in the

western Sydney suburb of Willmott.

They arrested a 40-year-old woman.

A 51-year-old, a high-ranking

Outlaws member was also arrested.

A Sydney council has been caught

out fixing a parking fine quota.

Every parking officer must issue

$200,000 in tickets. Next year, the

council will be reaping even more.

An anonymous whistle-blower has

revealed Ku-ring-gai Council's four

parking rangers are each being

asked to issue $200,000 worth of

fines per year. The quota system is

evident in their lead to work plans

which show they are expected to

write $50,000 worth of fines per

quarter. It is a cynical revenue-

raising exercise.

An extra parking ranger is due to

be hired in 2011. It is unfair.

There are after money and this is

an easy target. The mayor says it

is wrong to do -- to define deep

fine at revenue as a quota. I do

not believe we are pushing ranges

to go and an appropriately fine

people. The whistle-blower claims

the council uses zero tolerance

tactics to force ranges to me to

exceed their quota of parking

tickets. It is definitely a quota.

I do not know what the mayor said

about it. Of course it is a quota.

While commuter car parks in other

areas are free, the council charges

$5 per day at Killara station and

expects to reap $100,000 per year in fines.
