This week we saw the 2sqm rule will be expanded and venue caps removed under a major easing of restrictions, as NSW continues to record zero cases of community transmission. We are grateful to the people in NSW for their patience and understanding over what has been an incredibly difficult year. The rolling back of restrictions across the State is only possible because of the excellent work of the community who have followed social distancing guidelines and continued to come forward for testing. This change will make a big difference to many businesses and will provide a real boost for jobs particularly in the service industry which has been hit hard over the past nine months. Keep getting tested with even the slightest of symptoms, maintain your social distance, don’t go to

The 2020 Kelso High School Decade Award 2020 is the 24th year of the Kelso High Decade Award. The award recognises a student who has completed their secondary education at Kelso more than 10 years ago, and has gone on to achieve outstanding success or to have excelled in their chosen field. This year’s recipient is Cameron Korb-Wells.

“MY COMMUNITY PROJECT” FORGING AHEAD AT EGLINTON PUBLIC SCHOOL Most of the hard yards have be completed with major earthworks forging ahead at Eglinton Public School where its My Community Project vision for their “Welcome Gather Connect Playground” is starting to take shape.

E

arlier this year Bathurst MP Paul Toole announced Eglinton Public School as one of three successful applicants in My Community Projects, with $111,550 being awarded to the school under the NSW Government initiative. The winners were selected by the local community after the general public asked to vote on their favourite projects. Mr Toole said the aim of the ‘Welcome Gather Connect Playground’ is to rejuvenate the welcoming point being the garden gateway to Eglinton Public School. The project will also safely link

the formal school environment, allowing for inclusive play options all year round. “Major earth and drainage works have been completed and now the main focus will move to the bricks and mortar stage,” he said. “The construction of the welcoming path leading into the heart of the school will allow for a space for the community and students to gather.” Eglinton Public School Principal, Vicky O’Rourke said the once barren courtyard is certainly undergoing a major transformation. “The new area will not only provide a new visual appeal for the school, but welcome and

attract students, staff and the community as a whole,” she said. “With Eglinton also rapidly expanding, having this along with other community upgrades it will be great for the community.” The two other successful My Community Project winners were Café on Corporation and Bathurst Public School’s Education App-etite interactive and educational garden.

IN PRIMARY SCHOOL Cameron was already saying that he wanted to be a doctor and find a cure for cancer. He began Year 7 at Kelso High School in 1998. Cameron has always loved a challenge, earning High Distinctions and Distinctions in the Mathematics, English, Science Economics and Computing Competitions throughout his secondary schooling. Cameron’s ambition to do medicine at university was a longterm project. Having set his goal in early primary school, he focused on achieving it throughout his secondary school. He took part in a wide range of work experiences in General Practice, Surgery, Pharmacy, Radiology and Physiotherapy. He even applied for a job at Bathurst Base Hospital while waiting for his HSC results. His HSC results were outstanding and he finished as Dux. 2004 saw Cameron enrol as an undergraduate in a new curriculum path offered by the UNSW, one which involved working with patients from day one.  Cameron was awarded his Bachelor of Science (Medicine) Honours Class

1 from UNSW in 2007. This was soon followed by a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (Honours Class II) in 2009. In 2013 Cameron was awarded his 3rd degree, a Master of Public Health and Master of Health Management. In 2015 Cameron took on the role of Assistant Secretary/Treasurer of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers’ Federation. In 2017 he became a Councillor with the AMA NSW Council, while becoming the Clinical Superintendent of Medicine at Concord Repatriation General Hospital, as well as Honorary Medical Officer Geriatrician for Western NSW Local Health District. In 2018, based out of Concord Repatriation General Hospital, Cameron added the roles of Staff Specialist Geriatrician, Acting Deputy Director, Medical Services and Acting Medical Director, National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare to an already full CV. Kelso High Campus is rightly proud of its Decade Award recipient for 2020 - Cameron Korb-Wells MBBS, BSc, MPH, MHM, FRACP.

FIRE AFFECTED RESIDENTS ARE SET TO BENEFIT FROM EXTENDED SUPPORT SERVICES

news

Residents recovering from last summer’s bushfires in the Central West are set to benefit from vital face to face support services being extended for another year.

R

ecovery Support Services link people to their own personalised recovery support worker, who can help them navigate and access services and disaster assistance packages. So far 4,200 families across 25 local government areas have accessed their local Recovery Support Service. Federal Member for Calare, and Minister for Decentralisation and Regional Education, Andrew Gee, said the extension would ensure long-term support is available for impacted communities throughout their recovery. “Almost twelve months have passed since the devastating summer bushfires and they continue to extract a heavy physical and mental toll on many here in the Central West,” Mr Gee said. “There is still a lot of recovery work to be done and it’s important that people in our community know where to go to get the vital funding and support they need, when they need it. “That is why the Australian and NSW governments are pleased to provide $8.2 million to extend the Recovery Support Services for another 12 months. “While there is a wide range of federal and state bushfire support initiatives available, navigating through the criteria and information can add to an already stressful situation.   “The extension of this flexible and customised recovery service will ensure fire affected communities, such as Lithgow and Mid-Western, can access long-term support throughout their recovery journeys.   ”We understand that every person is recovering at their own pace. “I encourage anyone who needs advice, assistance or guidance on the next steps in their recovery to make contact with their local Recovery Support Service. These free services are there to help everyone impacted by last summer’s fires,” Mr Gee said. Recovery Support Services are funded under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangement (DFRA) which is jointly funded with the Australian Government. The extension takes the total funding for the services to almost $17 million.

Your YourCountry Country Your YourVoice Voice FEDERAL MEMBER MEMBER FOR FEDERAL FORCALARE CALARE ROYAL BATHURST SHOW RECEIVES MUCH-NEEDED FUNDING BOOST The Royal Bathurst Show will soon receive a financial boost, after it was forced to cancel this year’s show due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Show Society will receive $70,000 from the Australian Government’s $34 million Supporting Agricultural Shows and Field Days program to help cover lost earnings as a result of the shut down. Bathurst is among the 14 fantastic agricultural shows and field days in our region that will receive funding, including Carcaor which will receive $2994 and Trunkey Creek which has been allocated $788. Ag shows and field days are an integral part of the fabric of country Australia. They bring our farmers together, and they bring town and country together, while also putting tourism dollars into the pockets of local businesses. This year hasn’t been the same without them. Now that the NSW Government has given the go-ahead for COVID-safe country shows next year, we can start looking forward to the 2021 Royal Bathurst Show! Andrew at the Celebrity Esky Charity Challenge at last year’s Show

RUNS ON THE BOARD FOR BATHURST √ $4,875,310 for the upgrade of Campbells Creek Road near Black Springs √ $1,000,000 for Bathurst Regional Council through Drought Communities Program: water tanks at 13 local villages √ $954,250 for construction of the Bathurst Rail Museum

IMPORTANT UPGRADE OF MOBILE PHONE TOWERS IN BATHURST Seven mobile phone towers in the Bathurst region will be able to keep operating longer if the power goes out during or after natural disasters, thanks to a $13.2 million investment by the Australian Government.

√ $581,860 for the replacement of Howards Bridge √ $500,000 for a new taxiway, flood mitigation works and taxiway lighting at Bathurst Airport √ $380,000 the rebuild of Glenray Industries after it was destroyed by fire

The Australian Government will provide $13.2 million to Telstra, Optus and TPG to extend the battery back-up at 467 mobile phone towers at specific sites across Australia, which were funded under Round 1 and 2 Mobile Black Spot Program. Telecommunications - including mobile phone towers - rely on power to operate. This investment will allow mobile phone towers to keep operating for at least 12 hours after the power goes out, making a real difference for communities during and after a natural disaster.

√ $250,000 for Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience funding for Oberon Council

During the 2019-20 bushfires, over 1400 telecommunications facilities were impacted by the bushfires, with more than half experiencing outages for more than four hours. The vast majority of incidents - 88 per cent - were caused by power outages rather than fire damage.

√ $181,818 for the upgrade to the Bathurst War Memorial Carillon

In the wider Bathurst region, towers at Napoleon Reef, Paling Yards, Barry, Neville, Porters Retreat, Rockley and Trunkey Creek will be upgraded.

√ $165,000 for the Coombing Creek Bridge Replacement (also known as Felltimber)

The funding announcement forms part of the Australian Government’s $650 million bushfire recovery relief package announced earlier this year.

The Australian Government is continuing to expand and improve mobile coverage across regional areas, with Round 5A of the Mobile Black Spot Program now open for applications.

STATEMENT REGARDING THE PROPOSED GO-KART TRACK It was confirmed last week that the Federal Department of Infrastructure has not approved Bathurst Regional Council’s $750,000 grant application under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure fund for a Go-Kart Track in McPhillamy Park. Members of Parliament do not not have a say or role in such funding decisions. Enquiries I have made about the decision indicate that the application did not meet the grant program eligibility criteria. The proposal would not deliver a completed facility and therefore it was determined that it would not deliver community benefits, as required by the Program.

JUSTICES OF THE PEACE HONOURED FOR 50 YEARS SERVICE

M

r Toole said a total of 10 Justices of the Peace from Bathurst had achieved this remarkable milestone and all would receive commemorative certificates and letters of congratulation after chalking up their 50th year of service in 2020. “Between them, these unsung heroes have provided more than 500 years of assistance as JPs, helping people at key moments, such as when they apply for a passport, buy a house or access superannuation,” Mr Toole said. “Today’s ceremony was a great opportunity to say thank you to

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole joined with Bathurst Mayor Bobby Bourke today to honour five Justices of the Peace who have been serving the community since 1970. these tireless volunteers who’ve been performing the important legal functions of a JP for the majority of their lives. “Anyone would couldn’t make today’s function will have their certificate delivered to them.” The 10 recipients to be honoured for 50-years service as a JP include: Allan Aylward, Gary Holloway, Hilton Davis, Edward Prosper, Robert Alderman, Paul Favero, Graham Gilbert, Bob Cassidy, Helen James and Terrence O’Sullivan.

Program announced for Australia Day AUSTRALIA DAY CELEBRATIONS have traditionally provided the community the opportunity to come together, acknowledge achievements and celebrate. Australia Day celebrations in 2021 will look quite different, while still supporting local businesses, showcasing the Bathurst region and ensuring community connectedness. Australia Day celebrations will run from Saturday 23 – Tuesday 26 January 2021 with the theme ‘Reflect. Respect. Celebrate. We’re all part of the story’. A new Australia Day award has been introduced by the Australia Day Council to give government departments a chance to acknowledge staff for outstanding performance in special projects or core duties. Award recipients will be presented with a medallion and certificate on Australia Day at the Awards Ceremony.

HORSE TROUGH ONE OF THE most iconic artefacts in South Bathurst would have to be the horse trough at lower Rocket Street. Once a common sight in our town especially outside hotels, public horse drinking troughs disappeared during the 20th century until probably only this one remained at the end. On October 5th, 2017 it was pushed off its supports. Council removed the item before it was damaged more and took it for repair to Waterworks Lane, Gormans Hill. The trough was originally donated by Alderman Walter McPhillamy. It was placed at that crossroads in May 1906 “as a service to passing riders”. Precisely where it was located is not known as it seems to have been close enough to St Barnabas church for authorities to protest that it needed to be moved. The reason they gave was the language used by some of the people who used the facility. Whether that meant it was

much closer to or outside the church building or that they were just being obstructionist cannot be verified. It also leaked considerably and this was a perennial issue around 1911-12. The water quality was also a cause for complaint, there being a scum on the surface that did not encourage horses to drink. Also in March 1911 a “certain butcher” was alleged to have let his horse and cart stand by the trough most of the day and unsupervised milking cows milled around it as well making it hard for genuine passing riders to access the water. Whether the trough was moved to outside the service station or if that is where it always was is hard to say. In the 1970s it was displayed as the “Horse Zoom” trough thanks to station owner Alec Lamberton Snr who had it professionally painted as such. It was still used as a functional trough in that decade.

Is your current Business Model working for you? Better Business Column by Steve Semmens, The Persuader “Like seeing the doctor for an annual exam, regularly assessing a business model is an important management activity that allows an organization to evaluate the health of its market position and adapt accordingly.” - Alex Osterwalder IT IS AN excellent time of the year to start to plan strategies to carry our business into 2021 and beyond. This week, myself and many of my clients, will re-examine our business models by using a great tool created by Alex Osterwalder called a Business Model Canvas. It essentially asks us to challenge our current business models and to ensure that the nine building blocks integrate effectively. Those building blocks are, Key Partners, Key Activities, Value Proposition, Customer Relationship, Customer Segment, Key Resources, Cost Structure, and Revenue Stream. If these building blocks aren’t working coherently then it time to make changes and quickly. 2020 is certainly a year where many businesses have had to pivot and change their business models to match the everchanging landscape of their markets, caused by Covid-19 and other factors. Did you lose market share? Are you are still achieving the revenue goals you have set? Did your current suppliers fulfil your needs? Are there new market opportunities? Are you pursuing the same key activities but at less profit? These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself to get a reasonable picture of where your current business model is standing. A Business Model Canvas gives you those answers in simplified visual format which makes it easy to get an overview of your entire business.

Once you have completed the canvas you can then pinpoint any area of weakness and plan strategies on how to strengthen or overcome that area. An example of this, is when our company lost 90% of its revenue due to the pandemic in March of this year. We had to pivot and immediately go to online coaching via Zoom. We now have that as a regular offering and can coach entrepreneurs anywhere in the world. We have fast-forwarded our online training platform that was due for release in 2023 but will now be launched in early 2021. It has been added as one of our new revenue streams and shifts our training market segment from being very localised to being global. Another important area of focus is our ‘Customer relationships’. We have not been in regular contact with many of our clients or past clients as we normally would. We will allocate more time next year to calling our clients and actively listening to what their real needs are and what issues we can help them resolve. I use what I call the, “Power of 10’. Each day I will complete 10 tasks on my to do list and one thing on that list is to ring 10 clients per day. That is 50 clients per week, and over 200 per month. That sort of key activity creates its own momentum. If you would like to know more about the Business Model Canvas you can find a detailed explanation in Alex’s bestselling book “Business Model Generation”.

GRAINFORCE PREPARED FOR BUMPER SEASON

Bathurst’s very own grain freight and logistics business “Grainforce” has seen a slower period in recent times as drought gripped much of the nation.

H

owever, as farmers are gearing up for one of the biggest yields in years, Grainforce has invested in more storage silos for the expected increase in business due to the bumper crop. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said that despite the challenges small businesses are facing with COVID-19, it was refreshing to see one local operation expanding and growing their business. “Grainforce is a respected Bathurst business that has reinvested in our city time and time again. Ahead of a bumper crop, they have installed new storage areas at their rail siding site in Kelso,” Mr Toole said.

“Using regional contractors for the product and installation, they are supporting local jobs and stimulating the Bathurst economy. “This is an example of a local business success story that has boosted employment in our community and exemplifies vision and commitment to investing in regional NSW.” Grainforce managing director Derek Larnach, who has increased his grain storage capacity by 1800 tonnes, is looking forward to trucks laden with grain rolling in as the harvest moves into top gear. “The drought hit western

NSW hard, so it’s outstanding to see that farmers are expecting a big year. And we’re going to be here to meet the demand as we’ve installed six new silos to store grain before they’re sent by rail to ports for export,” Mr Larnach said. “And when you include what we can store in the main storage facility here, it brings our total capacity to be able to manage 20,000 tonnes of grain on site”. Grainforce started from small beginnings as a one man operation around 30 years ago and has evolved to employ many permanent employees and contractors across our region.

They bring our farmers together, and they bring town and country together, while also putting tourism dollars into the pockets of local businesses and the broader community. “Interest in country Australia has been dramatically increasing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. People no longer want to live or holiday in crowded cities,

they want to visit the regions and learn about where their food and fibre comes from. “That’s where our local agricultural shows come to the fore. They showcase agricultural excellence and the best of country life. They are an important part of our national identity. “From farmers, school kids and home cooking experts, to local ag businesses, volunteer groups and emergency services personnel— everyone loves their local show.

“The Supporting Agricultural Shows and Field Days program will help ensure that our agricultural shows can continue to showcase the best produce that country Australia has to offer now and into the future. “With some states already giving the go-ahead to shows next year – now is the time to start planning your next trip to country Australia and support our local shows.” Supporting Agricultural Shows and Field Days grant recipients in Calare are included in the table:

Rural and Drought Support team name upgrade THE DROUGHT SUPPORT Team has been on the ground since January 2019 providing ongoing one on one support to farmers, families, businesses and communities affected by drought. The team is made up of local people with lived experience of rural life, the trials and tribulations of business, and the challenges that can arise during times of adversity. Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD) Rural and Drought Support Team member, Matt March, said, “Even though conditions have improved in many areas we are fully aware that the impacts will be felt for many seasons to come. “With this understanding of ongoing adversities in rural areas, our role and the support we provide remains the same regardless of natural disaster or adversity. “This is especially timely considering we are approaching bushfire and storm season. In response to this change, the team will now be known as the Rural and Drought Support Team to

reflect the support we provide to rural areas. “Our ability to establish rapport quickly due to lived experience and pre-existing links to the areas we service has been integral to the program’s effectiveness. “We also link clients to other supports and services such as financial, medical, agricultural, or mental health professionals and support them through it. This is something not previously provided”. Matt said. The service is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL with the flexibility to meet on farm, in town, or via phone, text or email. We maintain an ongoing presence at regional events, community meetings and schools. WNSWLHD Rural and Drought Support Team Clinical Lead Leif Carroll said, “To normalise what people are feeling and how they are reacting in these situations can destigmatise what is

Bathurst RSL Club announces plan for Clancy’s site

FUTURE CUSTOMERS HELP SHAPE NEW FLEET Future customers of the new Regional Rail fleet have had their first look at the design of the new train mock-up during targeted user engagement sessions in Bathurst, using a lifesize detailed model of the train.

M

inister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said feedback provided by customer groups and staff during the sessions would help refine the design and finishes of the new train. “It’s so exciting to see the train start to take shape, and for future users to be able to give us their thoughts on things like passenger boarding and alighting, wheelchair access, accessible toilets and bike storage,” Mr Toole said. “This life-size model allows people to move inside sections of the train, which shows our designers how people with different needs interact with different aspects of the train layout so that they can further develop the design. “Over the past few weeks, CAF, the train manufacturer, has taken the full range of users through the model train so they can experience the new train and provide input into the design. “They include people with disabilities, travellers with luggage, parents with children, cyclists travelling with their bikes and staff

who will be operating the trains. “The Regional Rail fleet will mark a new era for regional rail – and this collaborative approach will go a long way to ensuring it meets the travel needs of all customers.” The $2.8 billion Regional Rail Project will see replacement of NSW TrainLink’s ageing XPT,

XPLORER and Endeavour trains with 29 new trains, which will be tested, maintained and serviced at the new facility at Dubbo. The first new trains are expected to be running from 2023. For more information, please visit https:// www.transport.nsw.gov.au/projects/ current-projects/regional-rail

BATHURST RSL CLUB Ltd confirms it is currently in negotiations with a development consortium for the potential construction of a 9,000sqm Integrated Medical Services Facility, including a new Private Hospital on the former Clancy Motor’s site. The parties are also currently in discussions with Bathurst Regional Council, as the proposed concept would also result in the construction of a multi-level car park in the current George Street Car Park (behind the Club), which is currently owned by Bathurst Regional Council. Club General Manager Peter Sargent said that the Club was excited about the significant improvements such a development would bring to the Bathurst CBD, and the Bathurst Community generally. “It’s been a bit of a complex proposition, as the site is still currently owned by Bolam Property Investments. However, ownership of the site is set to move to the Club in May 2021 under an option deed agreement reached between the Club and Bolam Property Investments in October 2019. So, we’ve been negotiating and working with a number of different parties to get this to come together. The best part of that has been that all of our interests have been aligned around delivering the best possible outcome for Bathurst.” Mr. Sargent said “the reason we initially sought to acquire rights over the Clancy’s site was so that we held a direct strategic interest in determining how that part of the CBD would be developed in the future. We were also conscious that there is not enough all-day or unrestricted parking in the Bathurst CBD, and the Club remains completely dependent on the Council Car park for access to the Club. This proposed development has the potential to address a number of existing concerns within our community, whilst at the same time addressing the Club’s need to provide more parking for our members and visitors”. Mr. Sargent said “a new dedicated Integrated Medical Services Facility and Private Hospital would provide a real boost to the medical services currently available in Bathurst,

making relocating to Bathurst that much more attractive for prospective medical professionals. The additional parking created in the process, would also start to address existing community concerns about the availability of parking within the Bathurst CBD.” The Club and the developers are currently in talks with Council with the aim of working together with Council to build a multi-storey parking facility in the existing George Street Car Park. “The Club is prepared to contribute to the cost of building more parking in that area, and the developers are prepared to pay for the parking that their development would require. We’re asking Council to also make a contribution, in order to add more public parking spaces, delivering better parking infrastructure for the Bathurst CBD into the future.” Club President Ian Miller said that the potential development fits perfectly with the Club’s vision to be the heart of the Bathurst community. “It ticks pretty much every box you could ask for in terms of potential developments for the Clancy’s site, and for Bathurst. We understand how important it is for our members and for Bathurst residents generally, to have access to first class medical facilities. We also understand that people who work in the city centre all day need somewhere close by and accessible to park, and of course, somewhere for our members and visitors to park. Imagine how fantastic it would be for the Club to have this kind of facility at our back-door step! Mr. Sargent said that initial discussions with Council have been very positive. “It’s still early days, but we were really encouraged by the positive response from Councillors when the concept was formally presented to them. A DA has not yet been submitted. The developers have shown a genuine interest in working cooperatively with Council and the community to give the DA the best possible chance of success once it is submitted, and we remain hopeful that we will see the concept come to fruition”.

GO-KART TRACK DEVELOPMENT Council has developed a series of frequently asked questions regarding the approved go-kart track on land at Mount Panorama/Wahluu, as a result of community interest in the project. The project information has been published on the YourSay Bathurst website yoursay.bathurst.nsw.gov.au. The page also includes copies of the relevant Council reports and other documents that were considered by Council as part of the development application process.

NEW EXHIBITIONS AT BRAG - OPENING

LINDA CHANT: HOLD ME, COVER ME BATHURST REGIONAL ART Gallery is proud to present Linda Chant: hold me, cover me opening Saturday 12 December. Cowra-based multidisciplinary artist Linda Chant’s work explores the conceptual and material nature of objects. Originally trained in painting and printmaking, Chant recently ventured into sculpture. Her small, delicate sculptures – glasses, bottles, vases and lamps manipulated, shrouded and bound with fabric – offer moments of curiosity and wonder. Literally and figuratively, they hold a moment, a memory, a thought, an action. They also allude to notions of fragility and protection. Chant explains, “Sewing to surround glass, over and around metal, is a risky procedure which draws parallels to the notion of fragility and protection.” Chant attended Riverina College of Advanced Education, graduating with a Diploma of Applied Art in 1981 and with a Diploma of Art Education the following year. She has taught Visual Arts in the UK

and in metropolitan and regional NSW. Her work has featured in group exhibitions at Orange Regional Art Gallery, Cowra Regional Art Gallery and Wollongong Art Gallery. In 2019, Chant was awarded the drawing prize for the Lachlan Valley Art Awards and she has been a finalist on five occasions for Calleen Art Award. A BRAG Foyer Space Exhibition This exhibition runs until Sunday 7 February 2021. Entry during standard gallery operating hours (Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-2pm) is free.

JURGIS MIKSEVICIUS: IN THE LIGHT OF THE SUN AND THE SHADOW OF THE MOON BATHURST REGIONAL ART Gallery is proud to present Jurgis Miksevicius: In the Light of the Sun and the Shadow of the Moon opening Saturday 12 December. Lithuanian-born Jurgis Miksevicius (1923 – 2014) arrived in Australia aged 25 on the SS Charlton Sovereign with 725 other Baltic displaced emigres on 29 October 1948. Before leaving Germany, Miksevicius, had studied at a Bauhaus-style art school in Darmstadt. On arrival Miksevicius was settled at the Bathurst Migrant Camp but unlike most refugees who were transitioned out of the migrant camp after a few weeks, Miksevicius stayed for about nine months. The camp director, William Rees, was aware of Miksevicius’ artistic skills and employed him to decorate the walls of the former army barracks’ recreation hall with caricatures of great Australian sportsmen, including swimmer John Marshall and tennis champion John Bromwich. Miksevicius was also provided with a studio space and encouraged to paint. It was here, in the Bathurst Migrant Camp, that he began to experiment painting with oils and trying to come to terms with the light, the gum trees and the Bathurst landscapes. Essentially, it was here in Bathurst that he began his 70-year career as an artist in Australia. This exhibition Jurgis Miksevicius: In the

Light of the Sun and Shadow of the Moon charts his development as a painter: his studies at art school in Germany, his early paintings and murals at the Bathurst Migrant Camp, and then focuses on later landscapes and philosophical ‘moon’ paintings as examples of the many genres he explored throughout his creative life. Jurgis Miksevicius: In the Light of the Sun and the Shadow of the Moon is a BRAG Exhibition. This exhibition runs until Sunday 7 February 2021. Entry during standard gallery operating hours (Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-2pm) is free.

ADRIENNE DOIG: IT’S ALL ABOUT ME! BATHURST REGIONAL ART Gallery is proud to present Adrienne Doig: It’s All About Me! opening Saturday 12 December. Through the lens of self-portraiture, Blue Mountains-based artist Adrienne Doig (b1963), tackles the everyday with good humour and wit. Her survey Adrienne Doig: It’s All About Me! draws upon the past three decades of the artist’s practice, which fuses historical references and humour to respond to the everyday and reflect on now. Using a variety of media, including embroidery, applique, sculpture and video, Doig playfully explores intimate aspects of her life, from having a cup of tea to performing mundane housework. Embedded within her practice are layered responses to universal themes that have social, environmental and political narratives. By manipulating, reworking and combining imagery from multiple sources, Doig records her own experiences within a larger context. Hence, It’s All About Me! The exhibition Adrienne Doig: It’s All About Me! will feature early performance video artworks and her My Life As A Doll series as well as the more recent Everyday Me, a paper doll installation. Also included will be elements of recent projects commissioned by the Art Gallery of NSW, for the Together in Art series and Archie Plus. Pushing the boundaries of the genre of self-portraiture, her explorations across a range of textile mediums also highlight the evolution of her ideas through the utilisation of different media. Doig graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the College of Fine Arts, Sydney (1989), and has a Certificate Art and Drama from Ryflkle Folkehogskule, Norway (1983). She has undertaken residencies at the American Academy, Rome (2014), the Moya Dyring studio, Paris (2007), the

Visual Arts Craft Board of the Australia Council studio residency in Milan (2003) and the Austrian Federal Chancellory studio residency in Vienna (2001). Doig has exhibited in contemporary art spaces and artist-run and commercial galleries in Australia and abroad. She has had solo exhibitions at the Research Library and Archive at the Art Gallery of NSW (2018) and Penrith Regional Gallery (2010). Her work has featured in group exhibitions at the Mornington Peninsular Regional Gallery, Orange Regional Gallery, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, University of Queensland Art Museum and Art Gallery of NSW. She is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary in Sydney. The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue featuring an essay by Steven Miller, Head of the Edmund and Joanna Capon Research Library and Archive, Art Gallery of New South Wales, an interview with the Doig and Emma Collerton, BRAG Curator, and responses to artworks by a selection of Doig’s friends and colleagues. Adrienne Doig is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.

CRISPY BBQ PORK BELLY

One for the meat lover's this week. With Christmas just around the corner, it is one to give a go before the big family feast to be sure you get it just right. Crispy pork crackling, I am yet to meet a person young or old that doesn’t love crunching down on a piece of well cooked crackling. It’s the combination of the salty taste, the crunchy texture, and let's be honest, the knowledge that you probably shouldn’t be eating as much of it as you do. I have been known to cook two pieces of pork belly when we have a big crowd, mainly for the extra crackling!

Ingredients

• Piece of pork belly about 2kg will easily feed 4 adults • 2 sprigs rosemary, a sprig each of thyme and sage • 1 Cinnamon Stick • 1 Litre apple juice • Salt • Olive Oil

Method

1. Take your pork belly and trim as necessary, if you have to, remove the bones from underneath 2. Finely score the skin with either a sharp knife or a standard box cutter type blade. Make the scores only through the skin, not down into the flesh. Space the scores about 5mm apart, it may seem like a big gap, but as the skin contracts in the cooking process, this leaves you with a perfect crackling in the end.

3. Liberally grind some salt over the top and rub in thoroughly with your fingers, then rub in a tablespoon of olive oil. 4. Add all your herbs to a large roasting tray, crushing and ripping them up to release their flavours, then add the apple juice straight into the tray. Lay the pork flesh side down into the tray and leave to marinate for approx 30 minutes, heat up your BBQ during this time, so it is nice and hot when you are ready to go. 5. Just before you put the pork in, place a roasting rack in the tray so the meat is not sitting in the liquid and stewing, but sitting above it throughout the cooking process. 6. Your BBQ needs to be scorching hot (the internal temp, not the plate, you don't want heat underneath the tray or the liquid will evaporate and your meat will dry out. About 220-240 degrees C when the meat goes in. You want the skin to start rendering fat very quickly.

You can check out a video of this recipe here!

7. Once you see the fat starting to bubble up through the scores, turn the temp down to about 180, and then leave it for about 1 hour before even opening the lid. If you are looking you are not cooking. 8. Give it a check after an hour , the meat should be turning a nice pale white colour, the skin should be starting to bubble up in places and starting to sound crispy when you tap with your knife. This is the time you need to use your judgment, depending on the size your pork may be ready at this stage, stick a knife down in between one of the scores toward the middle, if the juice that runs out is clear, you are probably close to being done, depending on your crackling/skin. 9. Once the meat is done, take it off, and let it rest for at least 10 minutes. You should be able to easily carve through the skin and all so you end up with nice juicy slices of meat and crispy skin topping each piece.

Discover Heritage FROM OUR VERY own Council website www.bathurstregion.com.au comes this promotion of our heritage city, billed as … “A town that proudly preserves its heritage” … “Bathurst, situated in Wiradjuri country, is Australia’s oldest inland European settlement having been established in 1815. Bathurst is the perfect mix of old and new. Rich history is everywhere here, and it is so much more than just the facades of grand buildings. Restaurants are housed in buildings that were once hotels or the town’s post office; lanes are named after gangs of bush rangers who were captured and hanged for robbing townsfolk. And then there is the beauty of the city’s Victorian park, the gorgeous

Machattie Park, with its bandstand, begonia house and a delightful fountain, planned in the Victorian era to be a joy to successive generations. Bathurst is an exciting mix borne of a spectacular history that really has to be seen to be believed. And the rich heritage continues across the region with each village having its own unique charm and character.” What do you think?

LEADER AWARDS AND BROWN OWL RETIREMENT

U

nfortunately, due to Covid, Guides had to have a small invitation only event instead of the large celebration that was intended for earlier in the year. Other Leaders with milestone service were Lesley Buchan ‘Kellick’ 55 years; Luisa McDiarmid 20 years; Gaylene Anderson ‘Clover’ 10 years and Tracy Nankervis ‘Acacia’ 5 years. Counting the other Leaders not on milestone numbers the Bathurst District is heading towards 180 years of experience but would still love other ladies to join in the fun. Paul Toole, MLA presented the Leaders with certificates for outstanding Community Service while Bathurst Mayor, Bobby Bourke presented Betty with flowers from Council

Bathurst District Guides celebrated over 150 years of Leadership at an afternoon tea held to celebrate the amazing contribution to Guiding in Bathurst of Brown Owl, Betty Wardman who is retiring after 55 years as a leader with 2a Bathurst Waratah Brownie Guides.

and, on behalf of the Guide District, a Thank-you plaque which will hang in the Guide Hall. Central West Region Manager, Lee Judd and Secretary Yvonne MacRae presented the Guide awards. 2c Bathurst Guide, Jacinta Bignell, presented an excellent thumb nail sketch to introduce each Leader and also put together a collection of photographs which played on the screen in the background. Ladies interested in finding out more about leadership with Girl Guides or in placing their daughter’s name on a waiting list for next year (particularly those aged 6 ½ to 8 years) should contact Kellick on

6337 4161 or kellickguider@gmail.com Bathurst Guides would like to wish everyone all the best for the holidays and a great 2021.

Safety comes first for those travelling between Lithgow and Bathurst ROAD USERS WILL be able to enjoy a safer and more reliable journey on the Great Western Highway between Lithgow and Bathurst following the completion of $1 million in safety upgrades at Walang. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said about 8500 vehicles use this section of the Great Western Highway every day so these improvements will play a part in keeping motorists safe on regional roads. “We also know Lithgow and Bathurst

are fast becoming hugely popular tourist destinations, so this work will help ensure all those visiting the Central West region return home safely,” Mr Toole said. “A number of factors were considered to determine the most appropriate safety measures to adopt, including crash statistics and highway usage. “Work included widening the road shoulder, installing safety barriers on the edge line in both directions, relocating road signs, and repainting road markings

to provide a safer road environment. “This project was delivered as part of the Saving Lives on Country Roads program and supported 30 jobs, including some local Bathurst and Lithgow businesses.” Transport for NSW thanks road users for their patience while the improvement work was carried out.

I LIKE MY hot dogs in a fresh bun with real butter and tomato sauce. Not the panting, overheated, furry variety. So let’s visit what temperature is too hot for dogs and how we can ensure they’re safe and comfortable with the hotter months coming up? When it comes to exercise, most pooches live for it and don’t think about their own limits when I comes to heat. A good rule of thumb is if it’s over 25 degrees, rethink going out. Especially if your dog is elderly or has health issues. Whilst humans can keep cool via sweating, dogs pant to regulate theirs. If they are too hot, panting will increase and it will become increasingly difficult for them to cool down. Early morning or late evening are the best times during the Summer for a ramble, but please check the surface on which you plan to walk, the paths and roads retain heat well into the evening. Place the back of your hand on the surface, if it’s too hot for you it’s too hot for their paws! For dogs who are designated to outdoor living there are a number of things to be diligent about. Making sure there is plenty of fresh water and shade are the top two things. If shade is limited, access to a cool laundry or investing in some shade sails is ideal. When the mercury is hitting temps of 35 degrees plus, please consider letting them

inside into a cool area of the house. If this is absolutely not possible here are a few ideas to help keep them cool and comfortable. - Cooling mats or wet towels for them to lay on, however make sure they are able to move off of them when they need to. - A shell pool with shallow water is a great option now that water restrictions have eased. - Add some ice cubes to their drinking water supply to keep it cool and encourage their intake. - Frozen treats are good too and crushing them up a bit ensures they don’t choke or damage their teeth. - If you suspect your pooch has heat stroke, take them to the vet where they will act to lower the dog’s body temp, administer fluids and monitor their progress. Signs of heat stroke: rapid panting, lethargy, depression, vomiting, diarrhea, a bright red tongue, red or pale gums, thick and sticky saliva, dizziness, shock or even coma. In in doubt just give your vet a ring and they can advise. With these few things in mind we can ensure our best mates are cool as cucumbers.

THE VOLUNTEERS AT the Tarana Rural Fire Service (RFS) have a new weapon in their arsenal. With sizzling summer temperatures sweeping across the state in recent weeks, the delivery of a new Category One fire tanker couldn’t have come at a better time. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole handed over the keys to the vehicle to Tarana RFS deputy captain Adrian Perry who was clearly very happy with its cutting edge, fire-fighting capabilities. “This new fire truck comes with all the latest technology,” Mr Toole said. “It has advanced emergency sprinkler systems, superior heat resistant materials and roll bars to help keep brigade members safe. “With another ominous bushfire season looming, I know it is a welcome addition for Tarana RFS volunteers.” Tarana RFS Captain Bruce Webb said the new truck means they now have four tankers in their fleet. “They don’t come any better than this new tanker though,” Mr Webb

said. “It has all the latest bells and whistles on it. Needless to say our crew’s pretty happy because it makes their life safer and increases their fire-fighting capabilities. “One of its features is a water canon out the front which is great for extreme fire events as well as grass fires. It will allow us to move forward along a spray line that we are putting down.” Captain Webb said the new tanker has arrived at the ideal time. “The hot weather we had last week certainly put everyone on notice that the fire season’s arrived. It was a real wake-up call because there’s so much ground fuel as pastures start to hay off because of the hot weather,” he said. “I would urge everyone to be prepared for bushfires and think about any outdoor activity they may be undertaking. “So, be really careful if you are welding, slashing or even driving across a paddock … in fact, be alert if you are undertaking any outdoor activity.”

U3A Christmas Party Stories and photos supplied

THE CHRISTMAS PARTY for 2020 was successfully held on the 2nd December in the Skyline Room of the Bathurst Panthers Club. A wonderful musical performance by the Ukulele Group and conducted by Karin Smith was witnessed by the 41 attendees. The music was so good that the requests for an encore could not be ignored. Andrew Wells did a really good job as MC – adding a little joviality (and looking almost like an “Aussie Father Christmas”). Greg’s Christmas costume – especially the hat — added to the fun. The Bathurst U3A had several people tell us it was the nicest U3A Christmas Lunch they had attended. The meals provided by Panthers were delicious. In
