Police are shaking their heads in disbelief after an incident in Cooma on the weekend.

On Sunday at 1:50am a 35 year old P-plate male was stopped driving a Holden commodore utility for a Random Breath Test. 

After testing positive he was arrested and taken to Cooma police station, where he recorded a reading of 0.057.

A 34 year old female collected him from the police station, whilst there she appeared to smell strongly of intoxicating liquor.

They left the police station and police followed.

They observed the same black Holden commodore travelling on Vale street, recognising the female driver.

They pulled her over for an RBT, where she recorded a positive reading.
 
As well as drink driving the female had a disqualified license since July last year.

She was arrested, taken back to Cooma police station, recording a reading of 0.111.

She will appear before Cooma local court.

Since 1997 the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research has raised over $1million through various successful fundraising events.

This year for the 20th anniversary, the organisation has decided to perform themselves, giving a very fitting rendition of the play "Calendar Girls".
 
Tickets will be on sale from 6am, Monday 24th of July.

The show will be on at the Cooma Multi-Function Centre on the 8th & 9th September.

President of MCCR Sandy Schofield says the idea came about in 2010 when some of the group saw the play at the Royal Theatre.

The Committee is a non-profit organisation, run by Monaro volunteers.

The original aim was to hold a major fundraiser in the Monaro district every three to four years.

Funds from the functions have been distributed in two main directions – research and support for local cancer care facilities.

The major share of money raised has been used for creating assistance for cancer care nurses caring for patients in the Monaro region. In addition equipment has been purchased for Delegate, Bombala and Cooma Health Services.

The Adaminaby Fireworks are coming up this Saturday night and locals are being urged to be mindful with their pets.

The fireworks kick off at 7pm and will light up the town to celebrate the school holidays.

Pet owners are being told to keep animals secure in a safe and quiet place when fireworks are being set off.

Snowy Vets say to make sure their contact information on micro-chips and ID tags are up to date.

Associate Vet at Snowy Vets Dr Zachary Lederhose says the noise from fireworks can be stressful and even dangerous for some pets.
