WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS Editorial by Rich Evans

The Central West was already a region facing challenges. The ongoing drought and uncertainty already had people a little concerned coming in to 2020, but no one could have foreseen the devastation that was awaiting us over the Christmas period. The days in the lead up to Christmas will forever be etched in to the memories of residents as the day the entire community joined together with the unwavering RFS and Fire & Rescue teams to save our town. There were losses. The stories are heart breaking, and the pictures really do tell a somber story. If you drive past the Castlereagh Highway turnoff and see where both sides of the road went up, you think to yourself, wow, that’s pretty close. In fact I drove through there just as it was happening… it was pretty close. Then you go for a drive through Clarence, Dargan and Bell and you cannot believe the devastation. It is like another planet. The earth is

scorched and it leaves you feeling lost. The landscape is simply unrecognisable. There were amazing heroic stories, many of which we will never hear because the people that performed the heroic feats did not do it for accolades, they did it because they had to. There are hopefully lessons, and after a meeting held in Lithgow on Thursday night by Office of Emergency Management in conjunction with Lithgow City Council, hopefully there will be some answers eventually. There are real issues we need to understand and address if we are to believe what people with far more knowledge of the science have been saying almost universally. This is not normal, but it may be the new normal. The community have shown themselves to be resilient, unyielding in their efforts to save not just their own homes but their neighbours homes also. People have donated time, money, food, clothing, anything they

could - we have come together. But why should it take a crisis to bring us together. My hope for 2020 is that the community spirit shown in the last two weeks doesn’t fade off as those blistering hot firestorm days slowly fade into our memory. My hope is that it continues. My hope is people sign up to the RFS in droves, they do continue to donate time, donate money, or anything they can. They do start to shop locally, and support small businesses doing it tough, they do lend an ear to a neighbour who needs a chat. Sometimes, you have to burn it all down to start again, and whilst Lithgow is largely still standing, maybe we can use this experience as a new foundation for community in 2020 and Beyond.

VANESSA PRINGLE FLORAL DESIGNS IS ON THE MOVE! By Kellie Evans

Vanessa and the team at Vanessa Pringle Floral Designs have used their annual Christmas shutdown to partly lie on the beach but also to move from the previous Keppel Street location to their newly renovated digs at 166 William Street. The heritage-listed building, has been lovingly brought back to life after being dormant for 15 years.

166 William has a long history in Bathurst and has worn many hats in our community since the 1890’s. From a funeral home to several kinds of restaurants to an organic fruit & veggie shop to now the home of gorgeous blooms and friendly faces! There’s still a strong connection to local residents that have had family history to this place and this newest version is sure to be a hit. Vanessa said, “We have taken the time to ensure we kept the elegance of the original character of the building but with a modern feel. We’re just so excited to be in own building that is triple the size of our previous shopfront. This means more room for cool rooms and storage and working space for our busy

periods - like Valentines Day thats just around the corner fella’s!” The future is certainly ROSE-Y (pun intended) for the team as they prepare for a one of their peak times which is Valentines Day. Orders are coming in already so be sure to get yours in now. And if you’re stuck for a gift for any occasion, there is a great range of local candles or wine to choose from as well as There’s also a great offering called Posy Club, a subscription based service that has flowers delivered. Pop in and say hi to the girls and discuss your needs today. Congratulation Vanessa on such a beautiful new store! What a way to start the new year.

AUSTRALIA DAY AMBASSADORS

The founders of Mama Lana’s Community Foundation, Lana and Roger Borg, have been announced as Bathurst’s Australia Day Ambassadors.

M

ama Lana’s Community Foundation has over 80 volunteers dedicated to helping homeless and the underprivileged.

The foundation also works with other charities and support services. Mayor Bobby Bourke said he was honoured to have

both Lana and Roger Borg attend our Australia Day activities. “Their dedication to helping those less fortunate is what being Australian is all about and we look forward to hearing their story which epitomises the Australian culture of giving and lending a hand to those who need it most,” he said.

Council’s Australia Day celebrations will commence with the Australia Day Awards Ceremony on Friday, 24 January at BMEC at 5.30pm. The ceremony will recognise achievements of members from the community.

GEE WELCOMES NATIONAL BUSHFIRE RECOVERY FUND ANNOUNCEMENT Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee, has welcomed the news of the establishment of the National Bushfire Recovery Agency (NBRA). Mr Gee said the NBRA would be funded with an initial $2 billion to ensure the families, farmers and business owners hit by these unprecedented bushfires would get the support they needed as they recover. “While the immediate focus for our emergency services and the Australian Defence Force is keeping people safe and defending against the fires hitting so many areas, we also need to be ready to hit the ground in communities where the fire-front has passed to help them rebuild,” Mr Gee said. Mr Gee said he has seen first-hand the devastation these fires have caused, and the pressing need for a recovery fund like the NBRA. “Importantly, the initial $2 billion investment for the Agency and its recovery work would be on top of the existing disaster recovery payments and allowances which have so far seen more than $100 million worth of assistance flowing through to families, small businesses and farmers,” he added. “Federal grants of $15,000 are now available for bushfire-hit farmers, small businesses and

not-for-profit organisations in the Lithgow City Council and Mid-Western Regional Council areas. “These grants are on top of the Disaster Recovery Payment which provides $1000 for eligible adults and $400 for eligible children. “And for those who have lost their income as a direct result of the bushfires, the Government will provide those eligible up to 13 weeks income support via the Disaster Recovery Allowance,” he said. Importantly, Mr Gee noted volunteer firefighters would now receive financial support for loss of income, where they have been called out for extended periods of service. “Rural Fire Service Volunteers in NSW who are self-employed or work for small and medium businesses, and who have been called out for more than 10 days this fire season, will be able to apply for the payments. “The payments will provide for lost income of up to $300 per day up to

a total of up to $6,000 per person.” Mr Gee said indicative priorities of the NBRA include: · primary producer grants for restocking, replanting and fencing · additional support for small businesses · grants to bushfire affected Local Government Areas · a mental health package for first responders and communities · support to attract tourists back to the regions · infrastructure projects to support economic

· community and industry recovery and resilience, and · measures to support the environment and native wildlife. He said NBRA’s key tasks include building on the effective working relationships with state, territory and local governments, including their recovery and reconstruction bodies, and to work with stakeholders in bushfire affected communities, and relevant Commonwealth agencies to inform and integrate recovery and rebuild activities.

@bathurstcitylife

“It will also ensure affected communities have ready access to meaningful support and all available services and developing and coordinating the delivery of a long-term plan for the recovery, rebuild and resilience of bushfire affected communities,” he concluded. Existing Disaster Recovery Payments are available now and eligibility can be checked at www. humanservices.gov.au/ disaster or by calling 180 22 66. To apply for the $15,000 recovery grant, contact the NSW Rural Assistance Authority on 1800 678 593 or visit www.raa.nsw.gov. au.

National relief for wildlife in need

As bushfires ravage Australia, and an estimated half a billion animals perish, PETstock and its charity PETstock Assist have pledged more than $150,000 to wildlife organisations in affected states. Donations will be made to Wildlife Victoria, Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) in NSW, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (Wildcare Australia) in QLD and Fauna Rescue SA. PETstock has experienced the impact of these fires directly, with team members and stores affected on the south coast of NSW and East Gippsland in Victoria. PETstock CEO Shane Young says he’s humbled by the support and care shown by team members in affected areas and beyond. “Stores within the affected areas of NSW and Victoria are working with and supporting their local communities to supply food and products to those in immediate need and taking refuge in relief centres,” he says. “Nationwide our team has shown an outpouring of generosity and goodwill to help those affected. “Beyond the direct donation made by PETstock and PETstock Assist we will also be providing channels for the community to support those directly affected, including wildlife organisations as they care for the animals impacted by these devastating fires.” All donations made to PETstock Assist throughout January will be donated to Bushfire Support through the following wildlife charities: Wildlife Victoria, Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) in NSW, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (Wildcare Australia) in QLD and Fauna Rescue SA.

How you can help

• Round up your purchase online or in-store – every bit makes a difference • Donate to PETstock Assist online or via donation boxes instore nationally • Wash your dog for a cause – from Monday 6 January to Sunday 12 January all DIY Dog Wash sales will be donated to local partnering charities to provide relief to those communities directly affected.

WATER SECURITY BOOST FOR BATHURST CONTINUES Water security projects of $20 million continue across the city of Bathurst to secure its water supply. One such project is the Winburndale Dam upgrade, designed to strengthen the existing dam wall. Bathurst MP Paul Toole said the Winburndale Dam holds 1700 megalitres and acts as the city’s second water supply, servicing local parks, gardens and sporting fields. “With levels at Ben Chifley Dam now at 32.9 per cent, the lowest since the dam wall was raised to double capacity two decades ago, the current situation in Bathurst is one of a number across regional NSW that is critical and Winburndale serves as a necessary backup for our city”. The upgrade will ensure the dam remains safe in times of high inflows. The work is being carried out Eodo Pty Ltd, and being managed by NSW Public Works. “Eodo are a few months into the project, and seem to be on track for the expected 12 month completion date,” Mr Toole said. “Holes are being drilled from the top of the dam wall into the bedrock below and then high tension steel cables will be strained tight to strengthen the wall.” Mr Toole said the NSW Government and Bathurst

Regional Council had partnered to provide the funding for the project at Winburndale Dam which was built in 1930. Mr Toole said another $10 million from the NSW Government is delivering: Winburndale Pipeline: This includes the delivery of a replacement pipeline from the Winburndale Dam to Bathurst Water Filtration Treatment Plant. The works will connect the water stored in the dam to Bathurst and ensure it is suitable for drinking and extend water security across the area. It also means in time of high flow in the Macqaurie River, water will be pumped from the river into the Winburndale Dam to keep it at maximum levels. Stormwater harvesting: A project to implement stormwater harvesting in Bathurst to supplement water supplies delivered to the Bathurst Water Filtration Treatment Plant. The project will model the stormwater harvesting already in use by Orange City Council. “Both projects increase the water supply sources available to Bathurst and boosts the resilience of the city to withstand the pressures caused by the drought,” Mr Toole said. “There is no doubt they will benefit both the community and industries in the Bathurst region and are a step in the right direction in providing water security for Bathurst both now and into the future.”

CORRECTIONS STAFF CELEBRATED ACROSS AUSTRALIA

National Corrections Day will be marked this Friday celebrating the 10,000 correctional staff in NSW - and the 25,000 frontline officers across Australia – who do an important job rehabilitating offenders and keeping the community safe. Minister for Corrections Anthony Roberts said the We Are Family theme this year focuses on the camaraderie of Corrective Services NSW. “Correctional staff do vital work rehabilitating offenders, in an environment that is often challenging and volatile,” Mr Roberts said. “Every day they work together like one big family, to support one another and meet the challenges of the job. We saw this just recently during the bushfire emergency, as staff banded together to assist each other and their

communities. “Like all families they have different characters and perspectives, but it’s critical in a correctional environment that they come together to work as a close-knit team – and I’m proud to say Corrective Services NSW staff do a fantastic job of that.” Staff across the state will be holding morning teas and lunches, and raising funds for chosen charities, including NSW Rural Fire Service, Australian Red Cross and the NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education

Service (WIRES). CSNSW staff are deeply affected by the NSW bushfires with many officers volunteering for the NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW State Emergency Service. Unfortunately, some staff lost their homes and property. Corrective Services NSW Commissioner Peter Severin praised staff for their dedication to their work and ongoing commitment to their communities. “I’m proud to say our corrections staff are some of the world’s best,” Mr

Severin said. “Corrections is a tough environment and our staff are performing difficult work, which is mostly unseen by the rest of our community. “Our teams work closely together and are also committed to their communities, fundraising and assisting where possible in times of need.” In the lead up to National Corrections Day, CSNSW discovered about 200 family units working in the organisation – and there are likely

more. This is mostly due to parents recommending the career to their children or people meeting their life partner on the job. Corrective Services NSW employs 10,000 staff including custodial officers, security and intelligence officers, inmate services and programs staff, psychologists and parole officers. Corrections Day was established by Corrective Services NSW in 2017 before it was adopted nationally and by New Zealand in 2018.

National Corrections Day: Community service is all in the family

National Corrections Day: Staff village helps raise a child

A love of the law and making a difference in people’s lives led 29-year-old George Marson into a rewarding career with Corrective Services NSW seven years ago. After completing criminal studies at Charles Sturt University, George had his first taste of the justice system doing his practical training with his father Gregory, who was working in probation and parole at Community Corrections at Bathurst. While Gregory has remained at Bathurst, George is now unit leader at one of the state’s busiest Community Corrections offices in Central Sydney. Gregory and George are among 10,000 Corrective Services NSW staff celebrated on National Corrections Day, Friday 17 January, for their dedication in rehabilitating offenders and keeping the community safe. Our 2020 National Corrections Day theme is We Are Family, focussing on the camaraderie of CSNSW staff who work together like one big family. Many of our staff, such as the Marson family, are also related. Helping offenders transition back into civilian life and keeping the community safe has become a passion for George, who says he eschewed a career in the police force after experiencing firsthand the important work Community Corrections officers do. “The thing I love about my job is you can really see the impact we have and you can see a change in offenders’ behaviour,” George says. “It is challenging and complex work and it’s hugely fast-paced in the city office.” An interest in the law and human behaviour is also a fascination for dad Gregory and his other son, who is studying law. Community service has been a strong theme in the family, which includes Gregory’s wife, a nurse, and her prison officer brother at Kempsey. Gregory says history, sociology and psychology is important to performing his role. “I like the complexity of the role, explaining behaviour and motivation, and every day is different,” Gregory says. George says he has huge respect for his father, and despite no longer working together, he still asks him for advice: “We can speak after work and I can get tips from him.” Gregory says George was very independent, but always listens to his advice: “It’s good to pass on social capital to your children, but let them grow as well.” CSNSW includes about 5,600 custodial officers, 1,100 Community Corrections officers, 650 industries workers, 700 psychologists and programs officers and 680 administration people. 

When Toni and Peter Cowell gave birth to their son at 26 weeks and spent 4.5 months in hospital, it was the support of their Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre family that helped get them through an anxious time. Ten years on and the Cowells are with a new work family at Oberon Correctional Centre in the state’s Central West, where young adult offenders undertake vocational training, education and other programs to assist with their rehabilitation. The couple are among around 10,000 Corrective Services NSW staff celebrated on National Corrections Day, Friday 17 January, for their dedication in rehabilitating offenders and keeping the community safe.         Our 2020 National Corrections Day theme is We Are Family, focussing on the camaraderie of CSNSW staff who work together like one big family. Many of our staff, such as the Cowells, are also related. “The support we were provided by our colleagues then, and in other situations since, shows that we’re more than just an organisation but we do band together like a family,” Toni says. The 44-year-old functional manager started as a custodial officer in 2003 at Silverwater, following in her mother’s footsteps with a career in corrections. Later she would meet husband Peter on the job in Sydney before they moved to the Central West to support Toni’s career progression. “It’s good having a husband around who speaks his mind but when we work, he’s got his job and I have my job so we don’t cross over unless it’s for professional reasons,” she says. “I’ve been very lucky to be able to develop and move into different roles and it’s nice knowing that I’m playing a part in addressing offending behaviour and assisting young adults ahead of their release.” Former custodial officer Peter now works in Services and Programs and says it’s good being able to work in the same field as his wife. “Love is where you find it,” the 28-year CSNSW veteran says. “Here at Oberon it’s very much a small community and it’s great having a massive support network – brothers and sisters you never knew you had. “I’ve been exposed to a variety of experiences in this job mainly working in offender behaviour management and mental health units and particularly at Oberon, I do feel like I’m making a difference.”

ABORIGINAL NURSING AND MIDWIFERY CADETSHIPS NOW OPEN Aboriginal nursing and midwifery students across the state can seize the opportunity to apply for NSW Health cadetships that provide financial and career support. Applications for the NSW Health Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Cadetship Program 2020 are open from today until 25 January. NSW Health Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer Jacqui Cross said the program aims to improve Aboriginal health outcomes by providing education and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people aspiring to be nurses or midwives.

“As part of this fantastic program, cadetships are offered to Aboriginal people to help them undertake and complete nursing or midwifery studies,” Ms Cross said. “The cadetships give these students the chance to be part of a team in a nurturing environment to build their skills as they prepare to be nurses and midwives. “They also provide financial assistance, including a study allowance, to help students manage their expenses while undertaking their studies.” NSW Health developed the program to increase the number of Aboriginal

nurses and midwives in rural and remote NSW, and to improve career development opportunities for Aboriginal employees working in the public health system. Elise McCarthy-McPhan is one of 173 recipients of the NSW Health Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Cadetship Program. Elise is currently working with the Nursing and Midwifery Office on secondment from the Sydney Children’s Hospital and said it was a life changing experience. “Each opportunity I was given meant more opportunities I was able to give back to my mob which was my motivation for doing nursing, to help provide culturally safe care

CHARLES STURT CONTINUES TO OFFER SUPPORT DURING BUSHFIRE EMERGENCY C

harles Sturt will continue to support students, staff and the wider community during the country’s bushfire emergency and have provisions in place to increase this support as it is needed. Charles Sturt University has announced it will continue to ramp up its efforts as needed to support staff, students and communities across its regional footprint during the country’s bushfire emergency. Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Germov (pictured), said Charles Sturt is committed to providing ongoing support as communities continue to be impacted by the bushfires, and the University have put provisions in place to increase this support as it is needed. “The bushfires are continuing to devastate and impact many communities across the University’s regional footprint,” Professor Germov said. “The Mid North Coast, the Riverina, the Blue Mountains and the NSW and Victorian border region are just some of the areas across Charles Sturt University’s footprint the fires have impacted. “I want Charles Sturt University’s staff, students and local communities to know that we are here to help and we will continue to provide a range of support, and increase our support, as it is needed during the bushfire emergency.” Professor Germov said Charles Sturt is grateful for the efforts of emergency services and the help offered by staff and students in the Charles Sturt community this bushfire season. “On behalf of the Charles Sturt University community, I would like to praise the tremendous efforts of firefighters and emergency service crews across the country,” he said. “The University is also proud of our graduates who are providing support on the ground across a range of areas, including paramedics, police, vets, media presenters and psychologists. It is heartening to see the positive contributions our highly skilled graduates are having at a time of need in our regions. “As the nation continues to face the effects

10

of this unprecedented fire season, we will continue to work closely with a number of community organisations and follow the instructions of emergency services to ensure we continue to provide the necessary support.” During the 2019-20 bushfires, Charles Sturt has provided accommodation for firefighters at its Port Macquarie campus, had beds in Bathurst on stand by and also currently has accommodation for bushfire evacuees on standby in Wagga Wagga and AlburyWodonga. “Before Christmas, we had approximately 600 rooms on standby in Bathurst and more rooms on standby in Orange for evacuees from the Blue Mountains region,” Professor Germov said. “We currently have 280 beds in Wagga Wagga and 60 beds in Albury-Wodonga available for bushfire evacuees in these areas. “We are working with the NSW Government’s Office of Emergency Management Disaster Assistance team to provide this on-campus accommodation to evacuees if it is needed. This is being managed through the official evacuation centres, so it is important that evacuees go to evacuation centres, and do not come to campus, and follow the advice of emergency services from the evacuation centres.” Campuses across Charles Sturt’s footprint are continuing to provide different types of support based on the needs of their local community during the bushfire crisis. • Throughout December the Charles Sturt campus in Port Macquarie provided accommodation and coordinated food and toiletries for approximately 200 firefighters battling blazes across the Mid North Coast. • The Equine Centre at the Charles Sturt campus in Wagga Wagga is currently offering accommodation to domestic animals that have been evacuated, and tending to severely scorched horses. Staff and students in Wagga Wagga have also been working around a roster at the Showground to support evacuated animals.

The University’s Wagga Wagga campus is working with the NSW Government to provide space for displaced small businesses to continue operations. • The University has also partnered with Wagga Wagga’s Kooringal High School to donate 500 water bottles and 500 pens for the school’s ‘back to school’ packs for school students impacted by the bushfires. • Late last year the University also established the Charles Sturt Bushfire Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships of up to $5,000 each to help continuing and prospective students impacted by the bushfires with their studies in 2020. Charles Sturt will continue to communicate with staff and students to ensure they are aware of how to stay safe and are aware of how to access support services from the University. The University encourages staff, students and members of the community to stay safe during this difficult time and to follow the advice of emergency services. Support Services for Charles Sturt students Fortunately, all Charles Sturt campuses and study centres remain open, safe and free from fire damage. If students need support or information relating to the current bushfires, they are encouraged to visit the specific alert section in Charles Sturt’s online Student Portal. Students can also direct enquiries to the University’s Student Central team by calling 1800 275 278 or emailing ask@csu.edu.au. Charles Sturt has informed students about how they can access support, including how to apply for extra time to complete assessments, apply for financial support and the options available to talk to a counsellor. Support Services for Charles Sturt staff For staff impacted by the bushfire emergencies, special leave can be accessed. Counselling can be accessed free of charge through Lifeworks (University EAP provider) by calling 1300 361 008, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Alternate work arrangements can also be made by staff contacting their supervisor.

in order to close the gap,” Ms McCarthyMcPhan said. “I honestly believe that if it wasn’t for the opportunities given during my cadetship program, I wouldn’t be as successful in the position that I’m in today, and with the supportive networks that I have formed.” For more information on the Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Cadetship Program 2020 visit www.health.nsw.gov.au/nursing/ aboriginal-strategy/Pages/aboriginalcadetships.aspx

COPING WITH THE EMOTIONAL IMPACTS OF THE BUSHFIRE CRISIS

Red Cross is urging everyone to be aware of the psychological and emotional impacts of this summer’s unprecedented bushfires, which have reached beyond the fire front to impact the lives of all Australians. “Immediately after a disaster, people may experience a range of thoughts and emotions, like numbness, fear, anger, helplessness and frustration. These are common reactions to an extraordinary event,” says Australian Red Cross’ National Resilience Adviser, John Richardson. “To help reduce the fallout of these events, it’s important for people to find ways to gain a sense of safety and control. People need a safe and secure place to stay, find out what happened to family and friends, and have access to relevant services.” Mr Richardson says experience shows that psychological impacts extend beyond those directly affected by a disaster. “People previously effected by fires can have old emotions triggered, those whose homes were outside the fire’s path can experience survivor’s guilt, while visitors who have witnessed the disaster can return to their usual lives across the country carrying traumatic memories.” “The scale of this disaster seems to have extended those impacts further,” he said. “It feels like the entire nation is traumatised by the event, our sense of safety and security compromised by the seemingly unending disaster unfolding on our screens, even filling the air around us.” Responding to the unfolding disaster, trained Red Cross teams have been in evacuation and relief centres across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, providing psychological first aid, and in some cases other essentials such as food, water and relief items. Teams are also reaching out to communities that have been impacted, providing practical and emotional support, connecting people to vital services, and providing emergency grants to people who have lost their homes. Red Cross is operating the Register.Find.Reunite service, helping reconnect loved ones who have been separated by the fires. As well as these immediate efforts, Mr Richardson says it is important to look to the future, as recovery is a complex process that can take years. “Many of the emotional impacts of the disaster won’t appear immediately, and some can take a long time to develop,” he says. “Our research with the University of Melbourne on the Black Saturday Bushfires found that after five years, 21 percent of the population were still experiencing serious mental health issues.” “Dealing with events like this over the longer term can be stressful, and emotionally and physical exhausting. Red Cross will be there throughout this recovery process, working with other agencies to support bushfire affected communities.” As part of this recovery process, Red Cross offers a range of resources to help people cope with a major disaster, available online at redcross.org.au/recovery. - Submitted by Australian Red Cross

TOP HSC STUDENT TAKES TIME OUT

Year 12 2019 St Stanislaus' College student and NESA all rounder, achieving an ATAR of 99.3 and five band 6 results in the HSC Ben Rudgely, is taking a well deserved gap year in 2020 prior to studying either law or teaching.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Ben is currently working as part of the Buildings and Grounds team at Stannies taking on gardening, repairs, cleaning and everything in between. Ben said that although he didn't aim for a specific HSC mark he was hoping for something in the high 90's. "I wasn't expecting 99, it was out of the ballpark". Although not yet decided on a career path, Ben said that teaching has always been a dream for him, adding that he had been inspired by all the teachers during his time at Stannies. "I also want to thank my family for their support, especially my mum, all credit goes to her for keeping me on track". Ben was one of six Stannies students at the College to receive an ATAR above 92 including Aiden Macauley with 97.7, Sam Hall with 97.15, Cameron Trengove with 97.1, Tom Adamson with 93.5 and Ben Thompson with 92.90. Incoming Head of College Mr Lindsay Luck joined with the Stannies staff in congratulating all the 2019 HSC graduates, saying that the results show the value of the College's commitment to Vincentian boys education in Bathurst as well as the range of opportunities and curriculum choices that suit the interests and the passion of Stannies students giving them the best opportunity for life beyond school.

TREES FOR THE PUMPKIN PATCH HABITAT ACTION GRANT

The Trees for the Pumpkin Patch Habitat Action Grant is nearing completion with the planting of native tree species along the riparian zone of the project site on the eastern bank of the Macquarie River by members of the Bundi Fishing Club recently. The project was funded by The Recreational Fishing Freshwater Trust under the DPI Habitat Action Program. The native species, once established, will improve the seed bank of native plants in the section of the Macquarie River above Burrendong Dam allowing natural dispersion to compliment the natural environment, reduce erosion on the river bank from the loss of riparian vegetation, reduce sediments entering the river thus improving water quality and potentially provide a food source and protection of high value native fish populations in the permanent refuge pool known locally as the Pumpkin Hole. Around 40% of native fish diet is produced by native riparian vegetation ranging from insects falling into the river to aquatic insects and crustaceans feeding from leaves & limbs that enter the aquatic environment. The project will also compliment annual native fish stockings in the Macquarie River by the Bundi Fishing Club, with money donated by club members & recreational anglers buying Murray Cod and Golden Perch via the DPI $ for $ fish stocking program to conserve and improve native fish populations in the river. The project will help to buffer the effects of the Macquarie River to Orange Pipeline on high value native fish stocks in the stretch of the Macquarie River. Invasive classified weeds, Tree of Heaven, were cut down and stumps poisoned using best practice methods to eliminate re-growth with follow up

treatment to control new shoots from roots, cut timbers were reduced in size to allow collection & placed in heaps which were burnt when timber dried & conditions allowed. Site preparations included repairing feral pig damage and ripping ground to allow for moisture penetration along planting lines. Trees were planted after holes were pre-watered & fertilizer & water crystals added to aid growth, small guards to provide protection from wind were installed, mulch added, plants watered in and stiff stay wire guards secured to steel posts were placed around each plant to prevent predation from goats, feral pigs & native species. To date over 300 hours of in-kind contribution by members (calculated @ $30/hr in the application), plus the purchase of equipment, supply of machinery, fuel & mulch has been donated toward the project by members of the Bundi Fishing Club to reach the current milestones. The Grant Funding of $10872.00 has been allocated to the purchase of steel posts & rolls of stiff-stay mesh to protect plants & the purchase of plants. Additional planting to complete the project will be undertaken when conditions improve. - Story and pictures submitted by Colin Gordon

Ms Pratt swapped a busy career counting numbers for a promising future caring for animals by studying a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at TAFE NSW. “After spending 20 years in the corporate accounting world, I decided I needed a change in career direction and chose to explore my love for animals,” Ms Pratt said. “The learning and mentoring that the wonderful teachers at TAFE NSW provide is second-to-none. Their relevant, practical experience and strong industry connections, together with my qualification have enabled me to start my new career.” According to research by SEEKii, 43% of Australians are currently considering a career change in the next 12 months, but will choose not to for reasons such as family priorities or job uncertainty. Ms Pratt said “I was able to balance family time and work by studying through

flexible delivery, only having to attend classes once a month which really suited my lifestyle.” “Being in the company of animals brings me great joy and it is very fulfilling to play a role in their care working as a veterinary nurse. I’m now in a career I love thanks to TAFE NSW.” 2020 is the perfect time to make the change for an exciting future.

ROVING LEO

REPORT FROM: BATHURST STORY FILED: NEW NORMAL

Hi people, it’s Leo here. Today I am going to talk about the impact the bush fires have made on everyone’s community. As you know a ‘new’ bush fire season is upon us and we are not doing too well. Lot’s of peoples homes have been destroyed and lot’s of people have sadly died. I have suffered a bit from the bushfires not because of

the fires but because of the smoke. I am an asthmatic and the smoke has triggered my asthma quite a lot of times. I am now on stronger medication and stay indoors a lot. How has the fire affected you and your community? I hope everyone is ok especially all those who have lost their homes and the families and friends of those who have

died. The fires have really bad for all our animals - koalas are really struggling, it’s just really not good. But luckily there’s people out there doing stuff our there to protect all the wounded animals and make sure they don’t become extinct. Stay safe and listen to all the fire warnings.

THINK DIFFERENT, ADOPT DIFFERENT

PETstock Bathurst takes the lead for National Pet Adoption Day On Saturday February 15, PETstock Bathurst will play host to its local animal rescue organisation as part of National Pet Adoption Day, an initiative of PETstock’s charity PETstock Assist with support from event partner PetRescue. The past five Adoption Days have found homes for nearly 3,000 animals across Australia, and this year PETstock Assist is aiming to find forever homes for another 1,000 rescue pets across its 145 stores. Olympian, television personality and animal rescue advocate Giaan Rooney is also supporting the initiative this year, encouraging Australians to adopt not shop for pets. Giaan, who grew up raising rescues, is urging Australians to adopt different in 2020; to adopt a new way of thinking when it comes to animal adoption and consider a pet they haven’t before. “It was love at first sight with my most recent rescue, Lester,” she says. “Despite being one leg short, Lester was the perfect dog: obedient, easy to train, loving and grateful. He gave me so much and wanted so little in return.

His passing last year still makes me tear up today. “Our family will certainly be rescuing again when we’re ready for a new pet and I encourage all would-be owners looking for a pet to consider adoption.” PETstock Assist Charity and Events Coordinator, Jess Guilfoyle, says ‘Adopt Different’ is a call to would-be owners to think differently about adopting a pet. “We want people to be open to different types of animals and breeds, to make considered and sustainable choices, and to give rescue pets a chance at a better life,” she says. “Contrary to popular belief many animals are surrendered to rescue groups through no fault of their own. Like little Lester, who was surrendered after suffering a broken leg requiring medical attention and amputation. “We’re encouraging all animal-lovers to attend Adoption Day on February 15, to meet pets in need, educate themselves on adoption and reconsider any biases they may have towards rescue animals. “All pets deserve a safe and loving forever home and through initiatives like

this we hope to break the cycle of pet homelessness.” PetRescue Co-Founder, Vickie Davy, has seen firsthand the incredible bonds that form when new owners open their mind and adopt different. “A lot of people start their search for a new pet with a certain type, breed, or age in mind. However, your perfect match might not be the pet you think,” she says. “If you have your hands full with kids, an older, more settled dog or cat may be a far better fit than a young, energetic puppy. Or, if it’s your child’s first pet, a smaller animal such as a guinea pig or reptile may be a better option and a great introduction to the responsibility of pet ownership.” Rescue pets receive extensive training and behavioural assessments before being rehomed, allowing potential owners to make an informed decision on the right pet for their lifestyle.

PRACTICE CLAVICAL INSTALLED IN THE GARDENER’S COTTAGE “This week the penultimate phase of the upgrade of the Bathurst War Memorial Carillon was reached. A very expensive and very rare practice clavier was unwrapped and installed in the Gardener’s cottage in Machettie Park, Bathurst. There, it will be used to train new carillonists in the complicated task of playing the real clavier, which will be installed later this year in the War Memorial Carillon. Richard Steele (Trustee of the Bathurst War Memorial Carillon Public Trust Fund) said, ‘This is the second last step towards the completion of the War Memorial Carillon that was erected 87 years ago this year. This project has been a combination of funding from Federal and State governments, plus very generous contributions from the local community. In all, about $800,000 has been raised over the past decade. The first phase was replacing and then increasing the number of bells in the carillon. This was completed in 2019. Phase two was completed the same year with the installation of a magnificent sculpture for a new Eternal Flame. Phase Three is the practice clavier and later this year the entire project will be finalised with the installation of an identical clavier in the carillon itself. Once completed, our beloved memorial carillon will be heard properly for the very first time.’ Submitted by Stuart Pearson

Book worm with Jenny Barry Hoping you all had some reading time over the holiday break to dip into some of the books in your pile, and are feeling ready for another great year of new books. It certainly was a sobering time with the dreadfully dry start to summer and the devastating bushfires across Australia. It has been truly shocking to see the impact

upon communities and our beautiful bushland and wildlife. In response, the generosity of individuals in helping recovery efforts through fundraising and the donations of goods has been incredibly heartening. In the book world, one of the great initiatives to help has been the #AuthorsForFireys campaign by Australian authors that ran on Twitter recently. The auction was quickly put together but grew and grew as it ran, with a huge number of authors coming on board. They offered up their books and memorabilia, homecooked meals, writing workshops and manuscript assessments, using bidder’s names for their characters in novels, visits to book groups; just some of the amazing array of things that were up for grabs. The campaign was a heartfelt and generous response to this tragedy and lovely to see.

At the same time, I’ve found it helpful to dip into a couple of recent books about the environmental degradation being experienced across the globe, including the latest from one of the world’s leading thinkers on the state of our environment, Canadian journalist and independent thinker, Naomi Klein. On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal, contains a diverse selection of her writing about climatic impacts from the past decade, along with recent work detailing an urgent reform platform for the future. Her work has always been a clarion call for governments and big business around the globe to address the accelerating impacts of the environmental crisis and On Fire explores the links between it and the economic and political systems in operation in our society. Closer to home, one of Australia’s

foremost economic thinkers about the climate crisis and energy reform is Ross Garnaut. His new book, Superpower: Australia’s Low-Carbon Opportunity (Black Inc), is a terrific overview of how Australia could become a world leader in the renewable energy sector. This insightful and compelling look at our future as a post-carbon provider of energy outlines the economic benefits for the country as a whole. After exploring the recent history of governmental policy in the area of climate and carbon emissions, Garnaut lays out his vision across a whole range of sectors, including manufacturing, agriculture and transport. This is a hugely inspirational read for anyone interested in the future of this country.

WEATHER

Bathurst has had to endure a variety of weather extremes over the centuries. We are probably no better nor worse off than many other NSW locales in this respect. Here, no doubt awaiting correction from weather statistic fans, are some facts and figures. The lowest temperature recorded at one of our city’s weather stations (in this case, the airport) was in 2017 on July 22nd with -7.5 degrees. This occurred at 6.30 a.m. Historical high figures include 41.2 (106.2 F) in 1905 and 105.2 F in 1909. The highest figure however was only recently recorded in 2017 February 11th with 42.1. This was a “regional” figure with no specific station given. Such high and low figures are exceedingly rare though people may put up an argument they are becoming more usual.

Picture: Winter frosts seem like a distant memory in this summers sweltering heat. Bathurst has also suffered with the rest of the state with droughts. There have been several serious multi-year events such as in 1895-1903 (“the Federation Drought”) and 1937-45 plus 2001. The present event began in 2017 and is a major drought in the long term 100 year record. There have also been single or double year droughts of great severity such as 1838, 1914, 1965 and 1982. Our city and surrounds have also had floods and storms. Snowstorms in the city have included 1896 and the 4th July 1900 blizzard. Both of these damaged many properties. Hail has seriously fallen in 1907 and 1988. Floods have impacted us in 1844, 1867, 79, 1955, 86, 90, 98 and 2006. The 1867 disaster saw the first Denison bridge swept away down to Rankens bridge which it badly damaged.

MORE HEAT TO HIT STATEWIDE

NSW Health is again reminding people to take action to prevent heat-related illnesses as another burst of hot weather is forecast for much of the state. Poor air quality is forecast as ozone levels are expected to rise in the western suburbs of Sydney this afternoon. NSW Health Director of Environmental Health, Dr Richard Broome, said people should take extra precautions as temperatures are expected to climb into the 40s, with ozone levels also contributing to the risk. Ozone forms on hot sunny days from a reaction between gases emitted by traffic and natural sources, and it can worsen existing heart and lung conditions. “Staying indoors during the heat of the day to keep cool, minimising physical activity and staying well hydrated are

important ways to reduce the risk of heatrelated illness. Staying indoors will also minimise exposure to ozone,” Dr Broome said. “If you have a lung and heart condition, you may be more sensitive to the effects of ozone, so it’s a good idea to avoid vigorous outdoor activity this afternoon. If you have asthma, keep your reliever puffer close at hand. “Heat puts a lot of strain on the body and can cause dehydration, heat stress and heat stroke. It can also make underlying conditions worse. People over the age of 75, people with chronic conditions and those who live alone are most vulnerable. “Signs of heat related illness include dizziness, tiredness, irritability, thirst, fainting, muscle pains or cramps, rapid pulse, shallow breathing, vomiting and

confusion.” Simple precautions can reduce the risk of heat-related illness: • Plan your day and prepare your house by drawing blinds and curtains closed • avoid the heat of the day by staying indoors and keeping cool by using airconditioning, fans; • keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water; • check on the welfare of vulnerable neighbours, friends and family. “It’s important to get to a cool place quickly if symptoms occur. People showing severe signs of heatrelated illness should seek urgent medical attention, in an emergency situation call Triple Zero (000),” Dr Broome said.

Happy Heritage 2020

The team here at Bathurst Heritage Matters would like to wish you all a happy and safe new year. When we sat down for our seventh Annual Dinner (at an undisclosed heritage location) The Big Mac proposed that we adopt a BHM new year’s resolution, and so we all pitched for our fav’s. My mate Mick, the Sage of Wiseman’s Creek, said “let’s hold a dance and pray for rain”. “What’s that got to do with heritage” said an unusually querulous Mrs Heritage. “I dunno” said Mick, “but I like to dance and we sure need the rain, and it was ever thus”. Mr History (a true radical) proposed we demolish the post office building, the state office block, the Telstra building, and a few others he couldn’t remember, along with a big red and yellow commercial sign in William Street. He also advocated a pedestrian friendly people’s plaza in the spaces between the Bones & Stones and the rear of the old TAFE. Sally Daahrling Hart wanted to have a huge party with lots of bubbly for the girls, and British black beer for the boys. She proposed free phone calls for everyone to and from Cirencester for a year. Mr and Mrs Budden want to move all the villages 10km closer to Bathurst so that they are easier to get to, and Mr and Mrs Tremain’s Mill want to get on with their transformation. In the end it was agreed the BHM resolution for 2020 would be… “Let’s have a CBD Master Plan that ensures our heritage streetscapes and buildings are celebrated, that our country town atmosphere remains, and that tall and bulky monoliths remain in Sydney where they belong.” by a humble heritage advocate – January 2020

PERIODS OF EXTREME HEAT IN 2019 BOOKEND AUSTRALIA’S WARMEST AND DRIEST YEAR ON RECORD

The Bureau of Meteorology has released its 2019 Annual Climate Statement, showing 2019 was both the warmest and driest year on record for Australia. The Annual Climate Statement is the Bureau’s official summary of the previous year and includes information on temperature, rainfall and significant weather. Australia’s average mean temperature in 2019 was 1.52 °C above average, making it the warmest on record since consistent national temperature records began in 1910 and surpassing the previous record in 2013 of 1.33 °C above average. Meanwhile the national average rainfall total in 2019 was 277 mm, the lowest since consistent national records began in 1900. The previous record low was 314 mm set during the Federation drought in 1902. Bureau of Meteorology head of climate monitoring Dr Karl Braganza said the record warm and dry year was one of the key factors influencing recent and current fire conditions in large parts of the country. “2019 was consistently warm, but it was book-ended by periods of extreme heat,” Dr Braganza said. “January last year was the warmest month Australia has ever recorded, while just a few weeks ago in December, we saw the Australia-wide record hottest daily average maximum temperature broken multiple days in a row. “At the same time, rainfall deficiencies across large parts of eastern Australia have continued to increase, unfortunately exacerbating both drought conditions and the current bushfires.” Dr Braganza said there were multiple factors influencing Australia’s weather patterns in 2019. “Most of this year, Australia’s climate has been dominated by a very strong positive Indian Ocean Dipole, which acted to both warm and dry Australia’s landscape, particularly from around the middle of the year. “We also saw the influence of a rare Sudden Stratospheric Warming event high above the south pole, which acted to push our weather systems northward and compound the warmer and drier than average conditions over southern Queensland and New South Wales during spring, amplifying the fire weather. “The other key factor at play is that Australia’s climate has warmed by more than a degree since 1910, which means very warm years like 2019 are now more likely to occur, while the trend in recent decades has been for drier winter and spring seasons in the south.” Last year also saw some periods of significant rain in northern Queensland and northwest WA. “In January and February, we saw exceptional rainfall have a major impact on communities in northern Queensland, particularly around Townsville.

“The flood waters were so significant they eventually made their way to South Australia, where we saw one of the largest fillings of Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre in many years.” In recent weeks, some of the key drivers of the recent warm and dry patterns over Australia have eased. As a result, rainfall for the coming months is expected to be average to below average in the east, while wetter than average conditions are possible much of WA and SA. However, temperatures are likely to remain warmer than average over the rest of summer. “Unfortunately the outlook is not indicating a widespread return to wetter than average conditions over drought and fire affected parts of eastern Australia. But with the likely return of the monsoon by mid-January for northern Australia, it’s raises the chances that we could see some periods of higher rainfall move south in the coming months,” Dr Braganza said. “It’s important the community remains vigilant to the risk of more heat and fire days this summer, particularly given how dry the country has been over the past 12 months.”
