In this week’s Manjimup-Bridgetown Times a 19-year-old from Manjimup was named Fremantle’s newest Docker, Shire rates are on the rise and a young South West man has been jailed after dangerously speeding away from police while drunk. Dana’s a Docker If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to push yourself to be the best you can be, look no further than Dana East. The 19-year-old from Manjimup was drafted to the Fremantle Dockers AFLW team last week after she began her football career just two years ago. Shire backs 3.41pc rate rise Property owners in the Shire of Manjimup are set to be hit with a 3.41 per cent rate increase this financial year. Councillors last week unanimously endorsed the 2021-22 budget, detailing the organisation’s planned spending over the next 12 months. The document included a rate rise of 3.41 per cent, which would mean an increase of about $56 for a residential property owner with a standard home in Manjimup. Jail for drunk chase A young South West man has been jailed for six months for drunkenly speeding away from police in a late-night car chase after they attempted to pull him over. Todd Antonino Pratico, 22, had previously pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol, disobeying a signal given by police and reckless driving to escape police. The Greenbushes man was numb and visibly shocked in Manjimup Magistrate’s Court on Thursday as he was sentenced to six months in prison.
