editorial Welcome to this week’s editorial, Another big week in the Eurobodalla for news. Sadly however Vol 16 September 15th 2017 we s=ll haven’t2018 seen2017 the return of the Moruya Examiner since it 28 December 7th, Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2019 disappeared pre-Covid for cost saving measures. ACM had indicated it, along with the other withdrawn papers, would return to the fold at the end of June as a South Coast masthead where it had served its community for over one hundred years. But alas the Moruya Examiner has not returned leaving the community to rely on just sixteen pages of print on Wednesdays in both the Bay Post and the Narooma News with the Friday edi=on of the Bay Post now just a slip at 12 pages. The media plays a major role in celebra=ng the warp and weA of our community. It informs, it includes and where able it ensures that the stories of the community are told, and captured to Above: Moruya Times and South Coast Journal 26 become archives of the history of a place and its people. September 1888

We love to explore the treasure chest of TROVE and to read how life was. Most recently the archives were once again consulted to verify flood heights in Moruya and to reflect on days gone by when the town was flooded in the extreme. The local newspaper plays its role in becoming part of this archive and with the unannounced demise of the Moruya Examiner it appears we have come to the end of an era that had no fanfare. And what of the Moruya Examiner archives. Fairfax had stated it would respect the historical worth of its papers and would see back edi=ons digitally archived. Sadly that has not happened for regional papers. With the new ownership of our local papers by ACM our future TROVE of history is not being recorded. In twenty, fiAy or one hundred years there will be no record of our day to day and unless there is a commitment by publishers to archive their new ar=cles to the internet we will have liEle history at all. While local historians are working to restore stories of the past the stories of today are simply slipping by. Un=l next—lei Note: all of the Beagle Weekender archives are provided to the Naonal Library and the arcles are all stored on the net. Beagle Editor……..

ANU Tax Clinic reopens for South Coast residents Last year, students from the ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) provided guidance to many Canberrans with their tax affairs. Vol 16 September 15th 2017

The assistance offered was a part of the ANU Tax Clinic ini=a=ve, a friendly, student-run clinic where 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 2018 111 July 27th 12th they 2019 clients receive informa=on from CBE accoun=ng students, under the supervision of experienced tax prac==oners. Relaunching the service on this week, the ANU Tax Clinic will be open for 11 weeks, from 12 August to 23 October, to coincide with the period before tax returns are due on 31 October. The service will again deliver assistance and informa=on to taxpayers – a crucial service in a COVID-19 tax season. In contrast to 2019, it will operate exclusively by phone and videoconferencing to comply with COVID-19 social-distancing guidelines. "Tax =me can be stressful at the best of =mes, but people may have addi=onal ques=ons due to COVID-19 tax measures and Jobkeeper payments administered by the Australian Taxa=on Office," explains Dr Sonali Walpola, a lecturer at the ANU Research School of Accoun=ng, who is the academic supervisor of the ini=a=ve. “Plus, a simplified process for some deduc=ons is now possible. This year we’re expec=ng lots of ques=ons about deduc=ons for home-office expenses.” The ANU Tax Clinic has extended its services beyond Canberra to Yass, Goulburn, Queanbeyan, Jindabyne, Cooma and the South Coast region, from Eurobodalla down to Eden. To be eligible, clients must be unrepresented by a tax agent and have an individual income of under $A60,000. While the community has benefiEed from this unique ini=a=ve, students interning with the ANU Tax Clinic have also gained significant personal and professional advantages. “The ANU Tax Clinic is not like any other internship, where you are usually working in the background on a project. It gave me the opportunity to be on the frontline from day one, assis=ng clients directly with their tax-related queries. Since I was studying tax alongside my internship, the queries from the clients further advanced my knowledge about all concepts related to tax. I was not just learning through books and lectures, but I was also geUng a chance to prac=cally implement my learning with real-client cases,” shares former intern Pirah Mukh=ar, who recently completed her Master of Accoun=ng. Echoing a similar sen=ment, CBE graduate Ben Raines, who is now a consultant with Pricewaterhouse Coopers, believes his internship at the Clinic changed him personally. “I was able to make a difference in the community, using the knowledge I obtained through my studies and helping people in need. This was really rewarding. Addi=onally, I was able to learn valuable new skills working with different tax professionals, as well as expand my professional network,” he shares.

Data consultant Place Score will survey Moruya, 15th Narooma, Vol 16 September 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 Bodalla and Tilba residents over the coming weeks to find out how they feel about their town or village. The Eurobodalla Council project, funded by NSW Government, is a first step in understanding community values that can be used to priori=se future town planning and investment for the whole shire. Council’s strategic planner Nathan Farnell said Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Central Tilba Above: Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Tilba residents are being were selected because they had been asked what they value about their villages in a community survey. directly or indirectly impacted by the recent bushfires and community data from the north of the shire had already been collected this year through other projects. “This project has been made possible through bushfire recovery funding received from the state government and is an important step in building community resilience and strengthening the local economies of Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Central Tilba,” he said. “We have recently collected community data for Batemans Bay and Mogo through other projects, including the Batemans Bay waterfront masterplan and ac=va=on strategy and Mogo Village Rebuild project, and we have less data on the values from communi=es in the south of the shire to guide future work.” Residents can take part by comple=ng a brief ‘Care Factor’ survey online at www.placescore.org/esc. The consultancy will also visit Moruya, Narooma, Bodalla and Tilba townships between 27-29 August to conduct in-person street surveys. Once collected, the data will be added to the informa=on gathered from the shire’s northern communi=es to inform the review of Council’s Community Strategic Plan and guide the prepara=on of future town and village planning strategies.

Advice to help get by and through From the climate impacts of ongoing drought and blazing bushfires to now figh=ng off a global pandemic (while ra=oning our toilet paper), we wouldn’t blame you if you’re siUng in your room right now (selfisola=ng, of course) and thinking ‘yep, this is all a bit too much’. Vol 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

Coming to terms with big problems, such as climate change and the coronavirus pandemic, can be hard and overwhelming. ‘Eco-anxiety’ has become a buzz-word of recent =mes, and rightly so – the impacts of climate change are scary, and only going to get worse if we don’t take urgent ac=on now. And it’s a similar case for coronavirus. Carol Ride, the founder of Psychology for a Safe Climate, says the same strategies that help us deal with climate anxie=es can help to manage coronavirus anxiety too. Here are her top five =ps. 1. Talk it out Keeping in touch with our friends is even more important at the moment while we’re keeping our physical distance, as maintaining a healthy social life is vital to managing stress. Carol recommends chaUng via the phone or video chat, rather than tex=ng or messaging. 2. Be kind to yourself Both climate change and coronavirus are big problems, so don’t beat yourself up about feeling worried or unsure – those are natural human reac=ons to issues with unknown outcomes. But the key is to be aware of all this, to know it’s normal but to try not to focus on nega=ve thoughts. ” 3. Choose your news carefully It’s impossible to scroll through social media, watch TV or turn on the radio without being bombarded by news about the coronavirus at the moment. While some of this is useful and important informa=on, a lot of it can add to your sense of feeling overwhelmed. Another handy =p is to restrict your news-consuming =me to just an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening, but make sure you don’t do it just before going to bed. When it comes to both coronavirus and climate change, make sure you’re geUng your informa=on from a credible, science-based source. 4. Move your body and enjoy nature Exercise is crucial for maintaining good mental health and solid sleep paEerns, so make sure you’re s=ll moving those limbs daily! Online classes, backyard workouts and solo walks around your neighbourhood are good ways to incorporate exercise into your daily rou=ne. 5. Seek help For urgent immediate help phone Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636 or Lifeline 13 11 14. To arrange an appointment with a psychologist, ask your GP for a referral. In =mes of stress and fear of the unknown, harnessing hope is an important way to keep powering on.

Take an Interac4ve Deep Blue Walk in Narooma for Science Week A unique interac=ve mul=media walk along the spectacular Narooma waterfront will be set up for Na=onal Science Week Vol 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 2018 111 July 27th 12th 2019 next week, enabling residents and visitors to learn more about ways technology is helping to manage, protect and enjoy the local marine environment. From Monday 17 August walkers can take a stroll from Rotary Park to Apex Park and along the way access digital content via QR codes from a range of local groups who care for, conserve and use the marine environment. Par=cipa=ng presenters include Sea Health Products, Nature Coast Marine Group, Batemans Marine Park, Eurobodalla Council’s Marine Working Debris Group, Underwater Safaris and UnderseaROV. The walk was organised by Narooma schoolteacher Chris=na PoEs, who originally planned to organise a hands-on informa=on day, however COVID-19 restric=ons forced her to think outside the box. “This a great no-contact way for everyone in the community to get out and enjoy the sunshine and increase their awareness of marine science and the work of local groups at the same =me,” she said. “We’re hoping to see a whole cross sec=on of people who want to learn more about the natural environment take part. “Walkers will need a phone with a camera to ac=vate the QR codes, which will direct them to videos or other mul=media content from each group.” Ms PoEs said the walk could take up to an hour, depending on whether all digital content was accessed, but it did not have to be done all at once. “This walk is our first aEempt and ideally down the track we will do it again and involve a lot more groups,” she said. The walk signage will be set up between Monday 17 and Sunday 23 August. More informa=on is at hEps:// www.scienceweek.net.au/event/interac=ve-deep-blue-walk/ narooma/ The project is funded thanks to a Na=onal Science Week Grant from the Australian Government to the Sapphire Coast Regional Science Hub.

For Australians, it meant that the Second World War was finally over. Official permission has been granted by NSW Police for a body of 10 par=cipants (mainly youth) to march down the main street of Moruya (Vulcan Street). They will be wearing WW2 era uniforms and carrying the flags of 1942 ABDA (American, Bri=sh, Dutch, Australia) + the NZ flag and that of Papua New Guinea. They will be given a Police escort. Gary Traynor told The Beale "It is believed they are the ONLY youth/history group to be marching on VP Day in NSW .... if not, the en=re country."

CommiEed to preserving the memory of Moruya’s war=me efforts, Rotarian and local historian Michael Gold commissioned a statue of the Dutch Airman to represent what happened at the airfield. THE AIRMAN

"We really wanted to iden=fy someone who had actually flown out of Moruya airfield and taken part in opera=ons. And we located a name that seemed to crop up regularly as being somewhat of a hero and his name was Gus Winckel. A pilot with the Netherlands East Indies Airforce, Gus Winckel dis=nguished himself by downing a Japanese Zero bomber in Broome before joining a newly formed squadron." The statue of the airman (leA with Gus) was hand carved by Bryan Carrick and is a tribute to the Dutch aircrew who flew Mitchell bombers from Moruya during WW2.

‘The Tiger of Mogo Chad Staples’ Mogo Wildlife Park-inspired Archibald Prize Entry Vol 16 September 15th 2017 Zookeeper Chad Mogo Wildlife Park, 28 December 7th, of 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

who led his team to overcome the worst bushfire aEack on the park in living memory, then has reopened the park twice this year (once following the bushfires, and once due to COVID19), has now inspired an entry to this year’s Archibald Prize – a cap=va=ng work =tled ‘The Tiger of Mogo Chad Staples’. The work has been painted by the park’s Resident Ar=st, Lord DJ S=ef. DJ's first portrait of Chad, which was entered in the Archibald Prize in 2017, con=nued the historic pairing of Art and Science in the form of a portrait pain=ng, which in itself is an in=mate procedure as the essence of the subject must be understood by the ar=st. Having since developed a working and personal rela=onship with Chad, the second portrait was of the man, a man who never rests. Using Poin=llism, Dry Brushing and tradi=onal oil techniques, the sleeping man is always a Tiger on guard and alert. Lord DJ S=ef, recognising that the Holy Grail for ar=sts was light, reversed the process from Black on White to White on Black, crea=ng the genre in the 1980s. Drawing is his first love, he has explored the history of art and employs the techniques of the Great Masters in his pain=ngs. 2 Covering all media, DJ's work can be found in 37 countries. DJ's solo exhibi=ons began in 1996, and in 1999 he became Ar=s=c Director at Adelaide Fes=val, working with David Bowie, Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love. In 2005 he opened the first privately owned gallery in the Upper Hunter of NSW, moving to Sydney in 2014, he has been a yearly finalist in the Fisher's Ghost Art Prize, in the Open, Drawing and Sculpture categories. On being selected as the subject of the pain=ng, Chad comments, ‘It’s humbling for the very human side of what I do to have inspired an arst in this way. This year has presented more trials than any of us could have ever imagined, and 2020 certainly hasn’t been a year that I could have ever let down my guard. From the horrific bushfires, to reopening to our community, then closing again due to COVID-19, it has been incredibly challenging. DJ is an amazing talent and I hope that this entry brings DJ all the recognion he deserves.’ Zookeeper Chad has seen his following grow from 23,000 to 150,000 followers on Instagram following the bushfires and has kept his focus on telling stories of hope, resilience, and posi=vity throughout 2020. Lord DJ S=ef has been closely connected Mogo Wildlife Park, and its sister park, Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, as its Resident Ar=st for a number of years - designing enclosures for the parks among other projects and S=ef is now planning a highly an=cipated Coffee Table book of the animal residents at both parks beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Have your say on estuary management Eurobodalla Council is asking the community what it values about Moruya River, Mummaga Lake and Wagonga Inlet as it prepares strategies to guide the long-term management of the three estuaries. The Council is developing a Coastal Estuary Management Plan, required under NSW legisla=on, to outline how it will manage Moruya River, Mummaga Lake and Wagonga Inlet, balancing environmental health and recrea=onal interests. Council’s coastal planner Cameron Whi=ng said Moruya River, Mummaga Lake and Wagonga Inlet each had their own unique ecological, cultural, economic, aesthe=c and recrea=onal values. “Eurobodalla residents have such an innate connec=on to the water and this process is about ensuring we protect and improve the things the community loves about these estuaries, without reducing the amenity,” he said. “Early community consulta=on for example has iden=fied that good water quality, access for recrea=on and spor=ng ac=vi=es, and maintenance of natural beauty are important. We’re now keen to hear from a broad range of people about their thoughts, par=cularly on issues concerning recrea=onal access and ecological or cultural significance of the estuaries.” The Council has produced a short, online survey for residents to complete, available via www.esc.nsw.gov.au/haveyoursay un=l Thursday 10 September 2020. It also plans to meet directly with members of Local Aboriginal Land Councils and Landcare groups later this month to gain their input. Council will use the community’s feedback to prepare a draA management plan which, once finalised, will be placed on public exhibi=on for the community to further comment.

Sixteen Batemans Bay bushwalkers formed a very large circle at the “Sunlit Waters” turn off, in compliance with social distancing. Mary had to use her loudest voice to be heard by all as she read out the COVID -19 requirements for walkers, prior to commencing the hike. The morning was crisp but sunny as the group strode along Sheep Sta=on Road before turning up hill and onto a fire trail. Everywhere walkers were confronted with signs of the havoc of the recent fires but, there was also abundant regenera=on commencing along with the sounds of birds. It was upliAing to see how resilient our wonderful bushland can be. There were also areas s=ll wet aAer recent rains and water in the small creek that hikers crossed on their 6.5 kilometre circuit.

Support the Share the Dignity’s August Drive For the fiAh year in a row Share the Dignity’s August Dignity Drive is now running for the month of August with Woolworths stores across the country hos=ng collec=on points for16 allSeptember sanitary item dona=ons. Vol 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

Share the Dignity is a na=onal charity that collects and provides thousands of sanitary products - pads, tampons and other personal hygiene items - every year for women and teenage girls experiencing homelessness and poverty. Small digni=es make a big difference. “So many women, every month, have to forfeit sanitary products because they cannot afford them. Many mothers have to choose between buying sanitary items and feeding their children,” said Rochelle Courtenay, founder of Share the Dignity. "With COVID-19 forcing the March Dignity Drive to end earlier than planned, Share the Dignity are excited to be back for our August drive to donate much needed period products to those in need across the country. AAer the fall out of the pandemic, we predict more and more Aussies will be in need of our help and we need your generous dona=ons to do so." "Since Share the Dignity was founded, we have been able to donate 2.5 million period products to those in need through our Dignity Drives and It’s In The Bag campaign. "Your generosity has changed the lives of so many across Australia and we are so thankful. "We donate thousands of packets of unopened period products to our partner chari=es to help women doing it tough. From those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domes=c violence, and those doing it tough. We believe everyone experiencing period poverty deserves the right to their dignity. “3.2 million Australians are currently living below the poverty line, 52% of those are women and girls. Many of them are experiencing what is referred to as ‘period poverty’ - being unable to afford necessary sanitary products.” “This is our second na=onal collec=on drive in partnership with Woolworths. It is so fabulous that Woolworths is suppor=ng this dignity drive in all regional and urban areas” added Rochelle. A local Share the Dignity organiser told The Beagle: “ We are asking our local communi=es to help ‘share the dignity’ and that for every sanitary product you buy this month, buy one for a woman or girl in need. Dona=ons can be dropped in the collec=on box at your local Woolworths supermarket across the Eurobodalla and Bega Shires”. “Wherever you live - from Batemans Bay to Moruya, to Narooma, Bermagui and Bega - you can drop in to Woollies, buy some extra sanitary products, and pop them in our pink collec=on boxes.” "All dona=ons must be brand new, s=ll sealed in their original packaging and must comply with Australian quality standards. We do this because no one should have to choose between a tampon and a meal. "When you donate period products to Share The Dignity, you’re dona=ng to a charity that directly supports those in need. You’re giving someone experiencing homelessness or financial crisis the essen=als, so they don't need to choose between food and dignity. The idea that people around the country are using socks or toilet paper instead of period products needs to change and we need your help. "Next =me you’re doing your shopping, keep in mind: one for me, one for them."

Free workshop for supervisors or learner drivers Vol 16 September 15th 2017

28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 2018 111April July 27th 12th 2019 Eurobodalla Council will host a free online workshop to help parents and carers guide their learners to become safer drivers.

The workshop aims to give parents confidence in supervising learner drivers, increase understanding of the learner driver log book, demonstrate how to encourage safe driving behaviour, and explain the licencing condi=ons for learner and provisional licence holders. Council’s road safety officer Kate McDougall said the workshop was run as part of Council’s road safety program in partnership with Transport for NSW. “This is the first =me we are hos=ng the Learn Safe Workshop online so parents can par=cipate from the comfort and safety of their own home,” she said. “Teaching someone to drive really can be a happy experience and research shows that plenty of supervised on-road experience in the first few years of driving reduces the likelihood of crashes.” The two-hour webinar on Zoom will kick off at 6.30pm on Thursday 27 August 2020. Online registra=ons close Wednesday 19 August. For more informa=on visit hEps://www.esc.nsw.gov.au/council-services/works/road-safety

New Bushfire Case Managers A Win For Vol 16 September 15th 2017 Community 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019 Eight months on from the bushfires, and people on the South Coast are s=ll struggling to navigate the complex bushfire recovery processes. In the immediate aAermath of the bushfires, it was clear to Gilmore MP Fiona Phillips that a case management service was needed and Mrs Phillips was delighted to see that become a reality in the Eurobodalla. The Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service has been jointly funded by the Australian and NSW Governments and will Above: Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips MP, with Jane Moxon of the provide one-on-one support to people Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service impacted by the bushfires . Federal Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips, said she today was delighted to join with the recovery service coordinator Jane Moxon and Eurobodalla Shire Council to officially open the service today. “Some =me may have passed, but the reality is that people impacted by the bushfires are s=ll hur=ng,” Ms Phillips said. “There is help out there but it has oAen been confusing and difficult for people to find. Not only this, but people con=nually tell me how distressing it is to tell your story over and over.” Since the service opened at the end of July, they have received over 400 referrals and taken on nine case managers. “I have long fought for case managers so people can get the help they need when they need it. I am thrilled to see that come to life in the Eurobodalla today. This is a huge win for our community,” Mrs Phillips said. “Thank you to Jane and the whole team for their remarkable work suppor=ng our community.” However, Fiona Phillips did ques=on why it has taken the government so long to provide this dedicated support. “I will keep figh=ng to make sure that people impacted by the bushfires in our community are not forgoEen,” she said. The Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Service is open Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm at 46 Vulcan Street, Moruya (next to the Moruya Pharmacy) and can be contacted on 4474 7434 or by email at recovery@esc.nsw.gov.au.

Council’s sustainability coordinator Mark Shorter said items from a shipping container spill in May were con=nuing to wash ashore. “The APL England lost 50 shipping containers into the sea while on route to Melbourne and we’re seeing more and more takeaway containers, meat trays, face masks, and small bits of plas=c wash up locally,” he said. “The Tangaroa Blue Founda=on has been tracking the spill debris since the containers were lost. It’s vital to remove these items but so important to record what is found. “All you need to do is enter the details into the Australian Marine Debris database, an easy to use phone app. This helps with tracking where waste is coming from, with the aim to try and stop it from the source where we can.” Council has also received reports of fire and flood debris again washing onto local beaches, with requests for clean-ups. Council does not remove natural maEer from local beaches, instead leUng nature take its course over =me, but will con=nue to monitor the beaches.

Reading—RIP Strategic Planning in Eurobodalla Shire

RIP Strategic Planning in Eurobodalla Shire The Beagle Editor, I read Mayor Innes’ press release and ar=cle in today's Bay Post (Mayor Liz Innes hopes legislaon being Vol 16 September 15th 2017 draAed will27th bring 28 December 7th,relief 2017 - August 12th 2020) calling for “turning off” the NSW Biodiversity Conserva=on Act Vol 48 2018 111April July 12th 2019 under the guise of “bushfire recovery” with a sense of déjà vu and deep disappointment. The déjà vu arose because the idea had already been foreshadowed in Council’s first mee=ng following last summer’s bushfire disaster (see Beagle ar=cle 10 February 2020 - Council Wants to “Turn Off” the Biodiversity Conservaon Act! Please Explain? ). Having heard nothing more since February, I assumed that this ill-conceived idea had withered on the vine, but here it was, back again, larger than life. My deep disappointment arose because this idea was yet another manifesta=on of the Standard Opera=ng Procedure for planning in the Eurobodalla, which seems to consist of either ignoring, crea=vely re-interpre=ng or seeking to remove any provision which could poten=ally prevent any type of development on any land within the Shire, regardless of its fundamental characteris=cs, including cri=cal things such as steep slope, flood hazard, bushfire hazard, endangered species or threats to water quality (so important to our fishing and oyster industries). For example, Eurobodalla Local Environment Plan (LEP)amendment 14 recently modified by Council at its 23 June mee=ng, and currently with the NSW Department of Planning for final approval, seeks the removal of E2 flood-prone land zoning of mul=ple flood-prone sites in the Shire and also rezones the same lands for residen=al development, oAen with significant increases in the number of lots permiEed for development through a reduc=on in the minimum lot sizes allowed. For example, Council voted at its 23 June mee=ng to increase the allowable number of lots by 900% at one Moruya site, thereby placing many more future land owners at significant flood risk. Council jus=fies this approach by asser=ng that “Any future subdivision on the land will need to migate the impact of flooding on-site and down stream”. This clause is remarkably vague and fails to iden=fy any specific ac=ons or measures to achieve its desired outcomes or specify how compliance would be measured. Apart from requiring that new developments should have at least 50 cen=metres freeboard above the flood planning level, the Eurobodalla LEP provides few specifics about how flood impact can be mi=gated on-site. This vaguely worded protec=on will be cold comfort to future flood vic=ms on these residen=al lots resul=ng from Council’s planning decisions. It is notable that Council’s jus=fica=on is at odds with the NSW Floodplain Development Manual (the go to “bible” for flood planning in NSW), which states on page 5 : “Case by case decision making cannot account for the cumulave impacts on flood behaviour caused by individual developments or works. This form of ad hoc assessment contravenes the principles of the manual” beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Reading —RIP Strategic Planning in Eurobodalla Shire connues connues…. Another troubling example of Council’s systema=c disregard for informed strategic planning is Eurobodalla LEP Amendment 11 (formally known as the Eurobodalla Rural Lands Planning Proposal - ERLPP), which was Vol 16 September 15th 2017 approved in October 2019 and opened up large areas of steep, highly hazardous bushfire prone land to 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 further development. Amendment 11 was at odds with the advice of the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) because no strategic fire assessment was undertaken at any =me during its prepara=on, despite mul=ple requests from the NSW RFS. The ERLPP also breached NSW’s mandatory Planning for Bushfire Protecon Guidelines (the “go to” manual for bushfire planning in NSW). It is disturbing that a major planning measure such as the ERLPP was approved without a detailed and systema=c strategic considera=on of bushfire risks in such a fire-prone area as the Eurobodalla, yet this is precisely what occurred. Council also failed to incorporate results of updated bushfire prone land mapping it had commissioned into the ERLPP, despite mul=ple requests from NSW RFS. Instead, considera=on of bushfire risk was con=nually “kicked down the road” and consigned to the development approval stage (applying a similar approach to the Amendment 14 flood proposal), by which =me it will be too late to rec=fy errors or omissions made during the strategic planning stage. This is a fundamentally flawed approach which will create intractable problems into the future. The current edi=on of the NSW Planning for Bushfire Protecon iden=fies the inherent lack of a strategic approach in the ERLPP in just one sentence “The most important objecve for strategic planning is to idenfy whether new development is appropriate subject to the idenfied bushfire risk on a landscape scale.” This is the exact objec=ve that the ERLPP studiously avoided, because it didn’t want to know the answer. The ERLPP basically presupposed that any type of development can be shoehorned into rural lands, so long as the Asset Protec=on Zone (APZ) is made large enough.. Not only did the ERLPP totally sidestep the requirements for a strategic level analysis to be carried out prior to rezoning, the ERLPP then compounded this omission by including new “open zoning” tables in bushfire prone land, which allow prac=cally any uses to be approved, including some expressly prohibited in all 3 edi=ons of Planning for Bushfire Protecon (e.g. service sta=ons and power genera=on), as well as Special Fire Protec=on Purpose (SFPP) developments, which are the most vulnerable category, requiring extreme protec=on measures that take a heavy toll on the environment. It is crystal clear that, within the ERLPP, bushfire protec=on planning was made subservient to a beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

It is also a moot point as to whether any developments in these areas will be insurable. The widespread devasta=on and15th 2017 Vol 16 September 28 December 7th, 2017 tragic Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019 consequences of our recent Black Summer disaster shows that isolated dwellings and community facili=es in bushfire prone lands are not defendable under 21st century bushfire condi=ons, and any sort of a credible planning system should not facilitate addi=onal development in such highly hazardous areas. NSW clearly does not have sufficient resources to effec=vely safeguard exis=ng dwellings and developments in these areas, let alone new ones. Yet, as a result of the ERLPP, large areas of high risk bushfire prone land will be opened up for residen=al development, requiring large scale clearing of vegeta=on to sa=sfy Asset Protec=on Zone requirements, with significant impacts on wildlife, stored carbon and sediment runoff, which affects water quality and our important local oyster and fishing industries. While Mayor Innes and her compliant Councillors may be able to claim yet another victory by geUng the NSW Department of Planning to sign off on LEP Amendment 14 or “turning off” the Biodiversity Conserva=on Act, Eurobodalla ratepayers and land owners will find that biophysical reali=es are not so readily ignored. The Council’s planning “victories” will come at the cost of readily foreseeable future tragedy and heartbreak. The purchase of many lots in the Eurobodalla is becoming a case of “buyer beware”, not just for the significant and escala=ng financial and insurance risks involved, but also because of the clear and present public safety risks associated with these lands.

Mackay Park project: Not so Done and Dusted AAer two weeks of accep=ng a tender to construct the Mackay Park Pool the Council s=ll has not told the public who the winning contractor is and how much the winning tender was. While the wider community is now unofficially Vol 16 September 15thaware 2017 that the winning contractor is ADCO (who are also the contractors who won the 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 2018 Hills Waves complex tender) the Eurobodalla Council con=nues with their veil of secrecy failing once again 111 July 27th 12th 2019 to advise their community of key details around the $70 million project. It has now been two weeks since Eurobodalla Councillors voted to accept the tender to construct the Mackay Park facility from an undisclosed company for an undisclosed amount that will be paid for, in part, with an undisclosed contribu=on from undisclosed funds and via the sale of undisclosed community assets bolstered from the sale of the Moruya Racecourse for an undisclosed amount. While it now appears as though the project will move forward and public consulta=on and inclusion in the project has come to an end it is not as "Done and Dusted" as some might imagine. There s=ll remains the ques=on of how the community will pay for the $15 million GAP and how they will provide for the es=mated $3 million per year to cover running costs and revenue shorKalls. Eurobodalla Councillor Anthony Mayne posted his concerns around the funding and the overt confiden4ality to his social media page asking: "How much will it cost in total? How will Council/Community pay for it? What assets will we sell to cover the shorLall? What is the opportunity cost (e.g. what will you go without now and into the future to pay for this project)? What is the ongoing operaonal costs? Can we see the business case? Will Council sll sell the Batemans Bay Community Centre? And the answer to each of the above = Commercial-in-Confidence. I voted against the sale of our community owned #Moruya horse racing track mainly because we could not tell you the sale $ price. I had the privilege of working with the community to keep its Centre in the Bay, to try and stop the sale of green spaces (Durra, Broulee etc), to preserve parks (e.g. Pre3y Point). So if Council is to sell off such assets across the Shire to pay for the facility in the Bay, then our community needs to know these details. Batemans Bay is a major populaon hub. The $51m in grant funding is terrific. Yet the enre Shire will fund any shor)all in the build cost through the sale of its assets. Any shorLall in the operaon costs will be paid for by your rates. How can Council represent you and your views and wishes if you do not know the price and how any shorLall will be made up? So what is the enre Shire prepared to forgo now and into the future to ensure that the Mackay Centre can proceed in the Bay? We are a resilient community. The bushfires led into covid and now we find ourselves in a recession. So as a community that has gone through so much together, I hope we can have a transparent and engaging debate on Tuesday so that we can best represent your desires for our future together. I will ask each of the quesons listed above on Tuesday to that we can hopefully have as transparent a debate as possible on what is a major project for our community. Duty First. Anthony

FiLy years on: Eric Clapton by Trevor Moore h3ps://open.spofy.com/album/3taJF5jLoJZ3zDKJBu5zG?si=Koa6YyC1TrS-RRBzWgJeag In the autumn of 1967, on a wall in Arvon Road in London, there Vol 16 September 2017 appeared graffi=15th that proclaimed, “Clapton is God”. And for a young 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 and budding guitar player, such as I was in 1967, that statement was about as close to reality as anything in the Summer of Love. This month, on 19 August 2020 to be precise, my good friend Macman, a.k.a. Neil Mack will be tripping the light fantas=c on 2EARFM in the third of his series of albums FiAy Years On. This month he has selected Eric Clapton’s first eponymous album. In many ways this album is a first step toward his second, massively successful 1974 album 461 Ocean Boulevard. By 1970 my guitar playing had improved and Clapton was s=ll a hero. But here was an album, by a guitar god, whose first track Slinky opens with a riff on the saxophone with a piano backing. What was going on?

WEDNESDAY 19 AUGUST 2020 4:00 PM Trip The Light Fantastic Neil Mack

Macman’s show takes its name from a lyric in the Grace Jones’ song Walking In the Rain. She sings “Trip the light fantastic, dance the swivel hips” originally composed and recorded by Australian band Flash and the Pan.

Clapton was born in Ripley, Surrey on 30 March 1945. His mother, Patricia Clapton, was 15 when she became pregnant by a 24-year-old Canadian serviceman named Edward Fryer. Fryer could not be described as a gentleman; he refused to accept any responsibility and went back to Canada, aAer receiving a dishonourable discharge, never to reappear. Canadian servicemen remained in Ripley for some =me aAer the end of the war and in 1947 Pat met a second Canadian, Frank McDonald with whom she fell in love. He asked her to return to Canada to get married … but without Eric. She leA Eric with his grandmother, Rose, and Eric was brought up believing that Rose was his mother. Rose was a widow and she had remarried in 1942 to a man called Clapp which has led some writers to conclude that Clapton was derived from Clapp. It must have been a shock to the young Eric when he wormed the truth out of Rose that she was, in fact, his grandmother. In his book Slowhand: The Life and Music of Eric Clapton, Philip Norman says that PaUe Boyd, his wife for 10 years and George Harrison’s ex-wife, says that “He became the wounded child. From then on, everybody around him seemed to feel an obliga=on to take care of him and prop him up.” He wasn’t helped when in 1954 his real mother reappeared to visit him and did not behave well toward him. His family was not par=cularly musical - Rose’s father had played the accordion and violin in summer fêtes - but, like many teenagers as the 1950s became the 1960s he became obsessed by American rhythm and blues ar=sts. An early influence was B B King and in the excellent 2017 documentary Life In 12 Bars he recommends any budding guitarist to listen to King’s Live at the Regal, a recommenda=on that I wholeheartedly agree with. The American R&B influence permeated popular music as the 1950s, with Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochrane and the Shadows, gave way to the 1960s with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Kinks, all of whom essen=ally started as R&B cover bands. He started playing in pubs and clubs around Surrey in 1962 with his friend David Brock. Brock went on to form Hawkwind The first solo album: the man can sing AND play guitar in 1969 and plays with them to this day. Clapton formed a band called the Roosters with Tom McGuiness. McGuiness went on to play with Manfred Mann un=l they disbanded in 1969 when he formed the highly under-rated McGuiness-Flint with Hughie Flint who had drummed briefly with John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. When the Roosters split up in 1963, Clapton joined the Yardbirds. The early Yardbirds were a classic early 1960s blues-influenced rock group and their early material is raw and unreconstructed. They played beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Reading FiAy years on: Eric Clapton by Trevor Moore covers, though they played them very well. Clapton played lead guitar with the band un=l 1965. He was succeeded by Jeff Beck who in turn was succeeded by Jimmy Page. The Yardbirds, however much Clapton felt they sold out to pop, was a major 1960s’ band. But when the band decided to cover15th Graham Vol 16 September 2017 Gouldman’s (later of 10cc, he also wrote the 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 Hollies’ Bus Stop) For Your Love, Clapton decided that he was not being taken in the right direc=on and his view was buEressed by lead singer Keith Relf’s adop=on of a Beatles haircut. It’s a shame in a way because the underlying chord sequence of For Your Love (Em / G / A / Am) would be a wonderful plaKorm for a Clapton solo. Perhaps there is such a solo somewhere. If there is, I would love to hear it. Having established a reputa=on as a great guitar player, he slid easily from the Yardbirds into John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. The Keith Relf and a stern-looking Clapton: he doesn't like the haircut. Bluesbreakers never produced a record that appealed to the average record buying public, but they were an incubator for the talents of so many rock ’n’ rollers. Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton (1966) was their first studio album; it’s the one with the cover that everyone (well, everyone of a certain age) knows. (The earlier 1965 album John Mayall Plays John Mayall was a live album.) Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton is one of those albums that you really had to have, Clapton on lead guitar, John McVie (later Fleetwood Mac) on bass, John Mayall and drummer Hughie Flint. Kicking around in the background was Jack Bruce who recorded several tracks with Mayall and Clapton that were not released on the original album. Clapton’s =me with Mayall was brief and inconsistent; he joined in April 1965, leA a few months later and then re-joined in November 1965. He leA in July 1966 before Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton was released. But he had made a name for himself gaining a reputa=on as the best blues guitarist on the club circuit. Philip Norman notes that Clapton “has a history of walking out of bands at their peak (first the Yardbirds, then John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers)” and he certainly moved around. In 1966 he found =me to join Steve Winwood, Jack Bruce and others in Powerhouse. It was Ginger Baker who invited Clapton to play with him and Jack Bruce in the trio that became Cream. Cream was a huge success selling millions of records in the US and Europe. It was the band that introduced America to Clapton and while Jack Bruce shouldered most of the vocal and song wri=ng du=es (with lyricist Peter Brown), Clapton Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton, the Beano began to develop as a singer, Album. songwriter and, as the only guitarist, had to thicken his sound and develop his techniques to rise above and around the bass and drums. As they leA for the States in early 1967, Simon Postuma and Marijke Koger of the Fool Collec=ve delivered to Clapton the Gibson SG guitar, known as Sunny. Psychedelia was the name of the game and the guitar is a beau=ful ornament to the Summer of Love. 1967 saw the appearance of a guitar player whose capabili=es were at least on a par with Clapton’s. Jimi Hendrix’ playing style was very different to Clapton’s. While Clapton says on Life In 12 Bars that “I don’t like having my photograph taken”, Jimi was much more of a showman. He used feedback and effects in a way that was new, and probably challenging to Clapton whose blues inspira=ons contrasted with Hendrix’s acid-rock infusions. beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Reading FiAy years on: Eric Clapton by Trevor Moore Cream formed in 1966 and were a brilliant band both for the record-buying public and for the hordes of young people (mainly young men I suspect) trying to play the guitar at least half decently. Despite Clapton’s reputa=on as a guitar legend, Cream was rela=vely short-lived. They fell apart in 1968 as Vol 16and September drug alcohol15th use2017 escalated tension between the three members, and as 28 December 7th, 2017 48 27th 111April July 12th 2018 2019 aVol result of conflicts between Bruce and Baker. They made four albums of which the fourth Goodbye was the result of them being persuaded to record and tour. I think that the spontaneity of that last album suffers as a result. It is the second album, 1967’s Disraeli Gears, with its lovely psychedelic cover that integrates Bri=sh psychedelic and heavy rock (Sunshine of your Love) with tradi=onal American blues (Outside Woman Blues). The cover of Disraeli Gears, incidentally, was designed by the Australian Mar=n Sharp who was also a co-founder of the legendary underground magazine Oz. You can listen to any track from Disraeli Gears (at a sa=sfactory volume or not) and it has undeniably stood the test of =me. AAer the breakdown of Cream, Clapton joined Steve Winwood and Ginger Baker to form the short-lived Blind Faith with Ric Grech on bass. Blind Faith’s live debut was a free concert in London’s Hyde Park in June 1969 in front of an es=mated 100,000 people. Their first eponymous album, with its controversial cover, immediately went to number 1 in the UK and the US. But Clapton was not happy; Blind Faith was over-hyped, and its US tour showed it was under-rehearsed with insufficient material. But among the suppor=ng acts was the American country and blues husband and wife duo Delaney and Bonnie. Clapton began to hang out with them, wri=ng songs and even joining them on stage. Steve Winwood takes over Clapton’s lead role in Clapton's 1964 Gibson SG. Blind Faith and by the end of the tour Blind Faith is finished and Clapton is planning to record and go on the road with Delaney and Bonnie. 1970 was a busy year for Eric. As well as releasing his first eponymous solo album, he also cofounded Derek and the Dominos. Most of the songs he wrote were about his infatua=on with PaUe Boyd, later to be his wife but then Clapton with Pattie Boyd married to George Harrison. He was certainly ardent in his wooing of PaUe and in 1970, the year we are interested in, he careered off the road while driving his lilac-coloured Ferrari without a driving licence. Apparently, a euphoric Clapton was driving home following his first kiss with PaUe Boyd – who was then married to close friend and Beatles legend George Harrison – when he lost control of the sports car, flipping it onto its roof. It’s difficult to confirm this; other sources suggest that PaUe had rejected his advances in 1970 and as a result Clapton took refuge in drugs and that it wasn’t un=l much later that his wooing of PaUe was successful. He married her in 1979. The marriage lasted ten years. Such, I assume, is show biz. Clapton’s 1970 album, which Macman will feature on his show on 19 August 2020, was released fiAy years ago on 16 August 1970. It was beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Reading FiAy years on: Eric Clapton by Trevor Moore recorded partly in London and partly in Los Angeles and used musicians from the Delaney and Bonnie tour with Blind Faith. Some of the musicians on the album would go on to Derek and the Dominos. The album is a marked departure from his previous work. The influence of Delaney and Bonnie results in15th less2017 urgency in the delivery. When playing with Cream or Vol 16 September 28 December 7th, 2017 Blind Vol 48 Faith, April Clapton’s 2018 guitar sounded like he had a message to convey and 111 July 27th 12th 2019 that you absolutely needed to listen to that message. On Eric Clapton the album the feel is more laid back, more leisurely. Perhaps this is because the album relies at least as much in his voice as on his guitar. Clapton was not confident of his voice, he thought he couldn’t sing but, although he felt the vocals on Eric Clapton were a weak point, listening to it now I do not think that is so. His =ming is good. his vocal range suits the songs and his delivery is measured. In some ways, listening to the album today it sounds almost middle-of-the(L) Bonnie and (R) Delaney (d. 2008) road. It has more of a pop feel than Clapton’s earlier work. This is the Bramlett reason for its success; it was more accessible, perhaps, than his earlier work as a guitar virtuoso. In no small way is this due to Delaney BramleE’s produc=on. Delaney would have brought the emphasis on melody from his work with Bonnie on their earlier albums. Even so, Clapton turns out some magnificent guitar solos on the album that paradoxically de-emphasises his prowess as a guitarist. Oddly, the track Blues Power isn’t a blues song at all, indeed the lyric starts “you didn’t think I knew how to rock ’n’ roll”. Of the eleven tracks, eight are wriEen or co-wriEen by Clapton. Delaney and/or Bonnie take song wri=ng credits on nine tracks. J J Cale’s AAer Midnight is the only cover version but a cover version that takes Cale’s version and wrings the melody out. The two songs credited to Clapton alone are Easy Now and Bo3le of Red Wine. Easy Now was a complete change for Clapton and betrays his lack of confidence in his voice. It’s a lovely acous=c song but the vocals are rather too drenched in reverb for my taste; I am not sure how Clapton persuaded producer BramleE to let it through. Bo3le of Red Wine is more of a rocker, basically a swung 4/4 12-bar that no doubt Eric knocked up in 5 minutes. But then the best songs are wriEen in 5 minutes and Bo3le of Red Wine is driven along by Carl Radle’s bass. If there’s a weak point on the album it is I Don’t Know Why. A BramleE-Clapton collabora=on, I have always thought that it was a weak song that is rescued only by top quality musicianship and produc=on. I suspect Bonnie BramleE and Rita Coolidge are on duty for the backing vocals. Stephen S=lls is there somewhere as well. There is far more to Clapton’s story. Eric Clapton, as a solo album, might be regarded as the gateway to the second Clapton album, the almost incomparable 461 Ocean Boulevard and then to 1997’s Slowhand … and beyond. But even compared with 461 Ocean Boulevard, Eric Clapton was and remains great listening. Clapton remains at least a demi-god to guitar players who learned from him that improvisa=on works in rock as well as jazz. But as Eric himself would tell those guitar players to listen to B B King Live At The Regal and that would be good advice. beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

food By Bev and the team at Go Vita, Your Health Shop at 5 North St, Batemans Bay It seems many people are suffering from gut and bowel problems at the15th moment. Vol 16 September 2017 Maybe it’s because of our 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 overindulgences of comfort food since COVID hit. With all this bread making and baking happening I’m sure there’s been a much greater consump=on of wheat which can be an issue for many. Maybe it’s because of the increased consump=on of alcohol, together with many ea=ng more high sugar, high fat foods. However, in general a huge percentage of people suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, flatulence, bloa=ng, reflux and indiges=on. Many believe there’s nothing they can do to relieve this problem and just suffer in silence. Generally, this is not the case and as you read further you will realise how important it is to address poor diges=on and gut health. There are supplements which can help heal the gut and bowel thereby relieving these terrible symptoms. Over the years I have seen many gut health products come onto the market however a new formula which has recently been released =cks many of the boxes when it comes to healing the gut. This is because the formula is not only innova=ve but contains some excellent gut healing ingredients. Firstly, it contains some of the well-known gut healing products such as slippery elm. Slippery elm is a healer and an=-inflammatory to the gut and bowel, as is another ingredient, aloe vera leaf. These two ingredients are tradi=onally used to help promote healthy intes=nal func=on and diges=on. Globe ar=choke is also included. Globe ar=choke assists with liver support which also assists with good diges=on. One of the key and most important ingredients however, is the amino acid, glutamine. This amino acid has been shown to assist in the produc=on and repair of intes=nal cells. Therefore, it is extremely important for maintaining a healthy intes=nal lining as well as preven=ng Leaky Gut Syndrome. Leaky Gut Syndrome occurs when par=ally digested food, toxins and bacteria pass through the small intes=ne and enter the bloodstream. PuUng it simply, large spaces occur in between the cells that make up the wall of the gut, allowing the bacteria, toxins and food to enter into the bloodstream. Diges=on is therefore impaired because the damaged gut wall is unable to manufacture the enzymes which are vital to diges=on. Unfortunately, when these toxins enter the blood stream, our body reacts with such unpleasant symptoms including allergies and inflammatory bowel condi=ons such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s disease. Arthri=s, chronic fa=gue, lupus, fibromyalgia and diabetes have also some=mes been linked to Leaky Gut Syndrome. It is logical that many suffering from poor diges=on also suffer from Leaky Gut Syndrome – hence the need to address this problem. This gut healing formula also contains Chamomile which is tradi=onally used in herbal medicine to improve diges=ve weakness. We know turmeric can be helpful for trea=ng inflamma=on which is why it may be helpful for trea=ng inflamed =ssues in the gut. Marshmallow root which is also included in this formula similarly has an=-inflammatory quali=es. Zinc has been found to be an important mineral for maintaining healthy gut bacteria. I’m pleased to see Inulin has been included. I have wriEen previously about the prebio=c Inulin being helpful in feeding our gut flora and therefore being extremely beneficial in gut health. I have also stressed frequently the importance of taking a probio=c supplement. For someone suffering from food allergies or intolerances it is worthwhile ensuring the probio=c contains the strain Lactobacillus rhamnosus which works par=cularly well in suppor=ng the body’s natural intes=nal flora and gut health. So don’t suffer in silence – your gut health is so important and there are many steps you can take restore good health and wellbeing. beagle weekly : Vol 168 August 14th 2020

Well that was an interes=ng weekend to say the least. In over 15 years of living in Moruya (I know, I s=ll don’t qualify as local), that was the highest I’ve ever seen the river. More than that, the amount of debris that was pumping down the river was, and s=ll is astounding, you only have to venture down to the beach at North Head to see how much has been deposited on the sand to get an idea. With all that being said, the fishing ac=on this week has been non-existent and understandably so. If you are keen to wet a line this weekend the lower, sal=er sec=ons of the river, are really going to be your best op=ons. Oily, smelly baits will be the go to this weekend, as will lures with lots of vibra=on or noise. Tuross River This system will the in the same situa=on as Moruya this weekend. Try the lower sec=ons of the river, with oily/smelly baits or lures with lots of vibra=on/noise poten=al for your best chance at finding a fish. Rock and beach These areas probably offer the best chance of finding a fish this weekend. Try the beaches that are removed from major river mouths, as these will have rela=vely cleaner water. Just be aware that some beaches have had substan=al erosion on them, which has resulted in sand cliffs to 10-12’ high making access and egress difficult. Be careful not to be trapped on a beach at high =de, with no way off due to an unclimbable sand cliff! Fisho’s are s=ll pulling plenty of salmon off South Congo beach! If you are planning a session from the rocks this weekend, give yourself plenty of =me to watch the swells before commiUng to a par=cular ledge. We have seas rising to 3m forecast for Saturday night, before they slowly start to drop during Sunday. Offshore We haven’t had any reports from offshore this week for obvious reasons. If you are planning a trip out this weekend, keep a keen eye peeled for floa=ng debris in the water, of which there is a lot. If you decide not to fish, you can always pop in for a visit, restock the tackle box, replace that line that has been on that reel since Moses was a boy, or just come in for a chin wag. With Father’s Day approaching, come in and find something for dad. Or dads, come in and find something you can drop hints about
