The rain for Saturday's race meeting at Braidwood came; medical emergencies tied up the town’s two ambulances so the first race, due to start at 1 pm didn’t start till 3 pm; then the track was so wet, the rest of the races were called off. The crowd remained good humoured and some shared shelter with the horses. REPORT PAGE 3

Coalition putting a fox in charge of the chickens By John Mitchell Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has welcomed the announcement of the terms of reference for an independent review into the Renewable Energy Target (RET) and says he’s hoping for a significant overhaul to stop new subsidies to the renewable energy sector which are forcing up electricity prices. The RET, currently agreed to by both major parties, is to ensure that 20 per cent of energy comes from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, by 2020. Mr Taylor said, “We need to grab hold of this opportunity to reduce electricity prices, while continuing to maintain our emissions reduction target. We must also take pressure off the extreme divisions within many

communities, particularly in my electorate of Hume, caused by rapid wind farm development. “There is room in this review for significant change in the way the RET works. There is no question about that. The degree of that change will depend on the view of the experts appointed to look at the scheme and on whether they believe it’s achieving its objectives in an economically justifiable way. My view is that we can do a lot better. “The reality is that the vast majority of the RET is expected to be met by wind farms. Very little other renewable technology is being deployed. This was not the original aim of the program. This review is essentially all about wind farms,” he said. Mr Taylor welcomed the panel

appointed to conduct the review: Dick Warburton, Matthew Zema, Brian Fisher and Shirley In’t Veld. “I know two of the members of the panel and they are very capable individuals who understand the issues, and that augurs well for the outcome of the review,” Mr Taylor said.

“Putting.. climate denier Dick Warburton in charge of the Government’s review.. is like putting the fox in charge of the chickens..”

Climate Action Monaro (CAM) President Ms Jenny Goldie is less enthusiastic about the panel. “Putting manufacturing chief and climate denier Dick Warburton in charge of the Government’s review of the RET is like putting the fox in charge of the chickens. “Mr Warburton has said on

many occasions that the science on climate change was not settled and that “..there’s huge debate about whether carbon dioxide is the main cause.” “Contrary to Mr Warburton’s belief, the science is indeed settled and carbon dioxide, along with other greenhouse gases, is the main cause. “The review needs to be headed by an independent scientist, not a businessman with little understanding of climate science,” she said. “The starting point has to be an understanding that there is an urgent need to move away from fossil fuels as a source of energy if we are to stay below the so-called safe level of global warming of 2oC. Angus Taylor and Jennie Goldie “It’s not a matter simply ‘for

the market’ to determine since conventional economics takes no account of such externalities as the atmosphere. This is a clear case where government can shift the overall situation slightly and then the market can take over. “It is only a matter of maybe three years before solar has parity with coal. When that happens, Australia will be left with a lot of stranded assets, not least coal mines and coal-fired power stations. “Were the RET to be strengthened, it would give greater impetus to solar and wind power development now and there will be fewer stranded assets down the line. With Mr Warburton in charge of the review, however, this is unlikely to happen,” Ms Goldie said.

Culvert will end nuisance floods Press Release Council work crews have recently commenced work on the construction of a new major culvert structure in Bungendore. Located under the Kings Highway near its intersection with King Street, the project aims to significantly improve the urban drainage arrangements for that part of Bungendore near Ellendon and King Streets, as well as the area immediately to its south. “Grades in Bungendore are notoriously very flat,” said Council’s Director of Works Gordon Cunningham. “This means is that it can be very hard to adequately drain parts of the urban area which can at times result in nuisance flooding.” The existing culvert located under the Kings Highway was installed many years ago and was not designed to cope with the development now occurring in its immediate area. “The new structure will be placed on a grade that better facilitates drainage and will incorporate flood control measures to mitigate the effects of backwater flooding from the downstream area of Halfway Creek,” said Mr Cunningham. Funding for the program will be sourced from a special developer contribution plan provided specifically for this purpose.

“..it can be very hard to adequately drain parts of the urban area..”

Totally Locally Produce Swap

Palerang staff brought up to speed on drones

“..were treated to a viewing of the technology in action..” By John Mitchell The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) visited Bungendore recently to test unmanned aerial systems (UAS), more popularly known as ‘drones,' and while they were there briefed some Palerang Council staff members on their use. Bungendore resident Alexander Hayes, who has a keen interest in UAS, noticed the trailer set up in the carpark adjacent to the Preschool at the junction of Majara Street and Turallo Crescent, on his way across the Turallo Reserve 'off leash' area. He approached the vehicle and was pleasantly greeted by two CASA representatives. Palerang Council staff members also noticed the vehicle and were were treated to a viewing of the technology in action, from a safe distance, using onboard video systems wirelessly transmitted to the base station on the ground. They were later briefed on the rules and regulations regarding

the use of drones in domestic and commercial airspace. Alexander Hayes has recently returned from convening a symposium at Ryerson University, in Toronto, Canada where the public were invited to attend an open forum event with guest speakers focussed on the use of UAS in domestic and commercial airspace. Early this month he also attended a symposium at Flinders University, Adelaide, where the focus of discussion was the implications of unmanned aerial systems for police and other regulatory bodies, including CASA, across Australia. Hayes is also a co-Administrator of the Drones For Good online community that can be accessed at http://goo.gl/ KB0ZbF More information on the differences between unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and model aircraft can be found at http://www.casa. gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/ main/lib100071/uas.pdf

By Jennie Curtis For just an hour the footpath outside Wild Rose Organics transformed last Sunday into an excited, happy group of people swapping their surplus home produce and stories. A Totally Locally Bungendore Home Produce Swap is where you meet your neighbours, acquaintances and total strangers, work out what home produce you would like to swap and somehow get the impression that you take home more than you came with. First time produce swapper Penny Kothe was excited with her first Totally Locally Bungendore Food Swap. “I took in some squash, zucchini and thyme and came back with sourdough starter, tansy, borage, beetroot, parsnip, blackberry jam, strawberry runners and more.” The next swap is on Sunday 2 March at 10am outside Wild Rose Organics. Information about this and future swaps is posted on the Totally Locally Bungendore Facebook page and the Totally Locally Bungendore village calendar at www. totallylocallybungendore.com/ “..somehow get the impression that you take home more than you came with.” calendar Races came rain, hail or shine’ P1 All those prayers for rain paid off over the weekend, but it put a dampener on the annual Braidwood Race meeting, held on Saturday. Despite the wet conditions a crowd of over 1000 braved the drizzle in a display of great ‘rain, hail or shine’ commitment to a unique local event. The 1pm start of the races was delayed because the ambulance allocated to the event was called away to an accident on the Clyde Mountain. And, when a replacement ambulance arrived, it was

MAYOR'S REPORT TO MEETING Mayor Pete Harrison's report on his Council activities to the ordinary meeting of Palerang Council held on Thursday 7 February 2014 B'WOOD FARMERS MARKET Saturday 7 December/ Attended the formal opening of he Braidwood Farmers’ Market in Braidwood. This is an initiative of a group of dedicated locals to improve access to local produce. I am aware of a few such activities within the shire, and they are creating quite a bit of interest. DARGES REEF CONSULTATION Wednesday 11 December/ Attended the Dargues Reef Community Consultative Committee meeting at the mine site at Majors Creek. As people will probably be aware, in the face of falling gold prices, and difficulties finalising the ore processing agreement, mine operations have been suspended. A skeleton staff has been retained, with a view to reviewing the situation in 4-6 months. This does have the potential to impact on some partnership programs, like the Braidwood Recreation Ground redevelopment, but Council is working through these issues with the mine operator. CAPITAL REGIONAL LIVING Thursday 12 December/ Attended the Launch of the Capital Region Living website (www.capitalregionliving.com. au) in Canberra. This is a SEROC initiative, to promote the benefits of living, working

and establishing business in the South East Region, with specific information about living and working in the cities, towns and villages in the area. BUNGENDORE PARK Thursday 17 December/ Attended the Bungendore Park (Mick Sherd Oval complex) community consultation session at the Council Chamber. For anyone who missed that, and is interested, the plans are currently on display outside in the foyer of the Bungendore office.

Unwilling to tackle climate The Prime Minister is planning to help drought-stricken farmers by abolishing the carbon price. I suggest that would have a pretty minor impact on the average farmer’s bottom line - the carbon price does not even cover agriculture. Abolishing a market mechanism designed to reduce emissions will however send a message to the world that Australia is not willing to tackle this problem. And this makes a global treaty much less likely. The legacy for Australian farmers will be a hotter, dustier continent. I suggest a better vision for rural Australia has two parts. First provide some global leadership to tackle the root cause

of the warming because Australian farmers lose in a warmer climate. Second our Government should focus on helping our farmers reap the benefits of a carbon-constrained world. There a many opportunities for farmers where it costs something to pollute the atmosphere and the right to do so can be traded-for example farmers can sell offsets by hosting trees, lease land for renewable plant, or compete with other nations by growing lower carbon food for local consumption and for export to the 300 million people just to our North. Luke Osborne. Hoskinstown Road, Hoskinstown

Jupiter communities divided Communities affected by the proposed Jupiter Wind Farm are already divided. The land holders who have signed up to host turbines are the potential winners, at $10,000 to $15,000 per turbine, per year. Their neighbours are the losers. Potentially losing their lifestyle, their homes, and the lifetime investment that is the value of their land. Their peace of mind is already a thing of the past. The veil of secrecy surrounding EPYC's activities does not help the situation. Their map of

the proposed wind farm is not accurate, and includes properties that have not signed up, and who have not indicated to EPYC any intention of doing so. Rumours spread, unrest grows, as does anger. EPYC stand to be given government subsidies of $500,000 per year, per turbine. This is taxpayer’s money. Our money! Their processes should be transparent and accountable. Perhaps they have something to hide. Sharn Ogden Mulloon Road, Mulloon

& Opinion


Benefit only to developers Robert Knight ('E4 zoning a no brainer' Mirror 12.2.2014) takes issue with my previous letter ('Maps show something else' Mirror 5.2.2014)) where I indicated that the Yass Valley Shire has restricted R5 zoning (Large Lot Residential) to the areas immediately adjacent to existing towns and villages where future developments for residential infrastructure could be encouraged and expected. Specifically he refered to two Yass Valley zoning maps, LNZ_005 and LNZ_001E and states that “Neither of these areas could in any way be considered as being adjacent to a town or village.” He needs to look at these two maps more closely. In the case of map LNZ005 the pink area marked R5 adjacent to the Federal Highway is clearly part of the Sutton village and its surrounds towards the Federal highway and service centres, while the corresponding area of LNZ_001E is adjacent to the Hume highway and associated with the region designated as IN1 (General Industrial) and SP2, (Infrastructure). Lobbyists and urgers for the R5 zoning of WamboinBywong (eg the leave us Alone Palerang campaign) have repeatedly used their interpretations of the R5 land use zoning adopted by Yass Valley Shire around villages and urban centres as an example to push for R5 zoning of the Wamboin–Bywong area by Palerang Council. However, they have been very selective and less than truthful in presenting their overall case, and this is clear from the many letters to the Mirror over the past year. Their failure to properly explain to their audience that the Yass shire (quite appropriately) uses R5 only close to developed towns

and villages is an excellent example of this selectivity. They have mounted a scare campaign claiming that the Palerang Council’s proposed E4 (Environmental Living) zone for Bywong-Wamboin will involve draconian restrictions on residents for accepted and everyday usage of their properties. They have also ignored or dismissed the precedent set by Queanbeyan Council which has zoned areas of similar developmental status and general character to WamboinBywong as E4. Finally they have failed to point out to residents that the primary purpose of R5 (as stipulated by the NSW Department of Planning) is “To ensure that large residential lots do not hinder the proper and orderly development of urban areas in the future.” There are very substantial differences between the urbanized regions of Yass shire and the existing character and development status of Bywong-Wamboin. For the R5 push to seriously suggest that all-or significant areas-of the Wamboin-Bywong area of Palerang should be zoned R5 rather than E4 (Environmental Living) on the basis of the land use zonings adopted by Yass Valley Council close to their village and urban centres, has been done as a complete misrepresentation of the planning and zoning intent adopted by Yass council. An R5 zoning of BywongWamboin would be an inappropriate imposition, and of benefit only to developers. While individual supporters of the R5 push maybe quite sincere in their views, the fact is that R5 is an agenda that would result in developments quite at odds with the existing rural- residential character of the area.

Mystery flag is identified The flag shown in the photo accompanying Tony Shepherd's letter 'The proper national flag?', Mirror 29.01.2014, is the Australian Federation Flag, also known as the New South Wales Ensign, was the result of an attempt in the 1830s to create a national flag for Australia, which was divided at the time into several British colonies. 
Wikipaedia says, “Captain Jacob Gronow, Harbour Master of Port Jackson (Sydney), proposed the flag in 1831 in The NSW Calendar and Post Office Gazette; Gronow also designed the flag, which was based on the Colonial Flag of 1823. Like the Colonial Flag, the “..the pink area marked R5 adjacent to the Federal Highway Federation Flag features a is clearly part of the Sutton village and its surrounds towards combination of the Union Flag the Federal Highway..” and the Southern Cross, but the cross is blue, not red, and there are five stars, not four.

It was especially popular among proponents of Australian Federation and was also used as an unofficial ensign by the merchant marine. In 1884 Lord Derby of the Colonial Office banned the use of the Flag at sea, possibly because of its similarity to the White Ensign. “In the 1880s and early 1890s it was used as a symbol of the political movement towards Federation, with groups like the Australian Natives' Association and the Australian Federation League using it to promote national consciousness of their push for Federation, under the slogan 'One People, One Destiny, One Flag.' “The flag was a favourite of Australia's first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton, who asked that a variant be considered for approval along with the competition-winning Blue Ensign.[2] The Colonial Office rejected the Federation Flag, issuing Barton a mild rebuke. [3] The Australian government received approval to fly the Blue Ensign in 1903, but the Australian Federation Flag was still being flown by Australian citizens as late as the 1920s. “It is still used in Sydney Central Railway Station main hall.” Maurice Cowan, Stoney Creek Road, Krawarree

What I should have said One of the reasons my late husband, John, and I came to live in Mount Fairy Road, nearly 19 years ago, was to not have other people’s rooftops all around us. From the high point of this property to the East, I can see Pigeon House in Moreton National Park, before it drops down to the coast at Jervis Bay.From my kitchen window, I have a southerly view across paddocks and bush to the hills south of the Kings Highway east of Bungendore. To the west, across the Bungendore/Tarago Road, I see now a few wind turbines, the nearest being 4km away and no problem. To the north the far view is hidden by another hill, but still a distance view. When we came here, there was a slight concern with the electricity pylons marching

across the landscape and the easement over our acreage, but, being in our fifties and having no children living here, we chose to go with that for all the other best reasons. Before John died in 2007, the Capital Windfarm was proposed but not yet implemented. Neither of us objected to ‘Green’ energy, but were supportive of our neighbours whose lives might be, and have been, impacted by the proximity of the turbines. I understand how the 67 turbines around Lake George impact on the vision, particularly, for those living on the escarpment above Bungendore and Lake George. Personally, I find the view of the few turbines I see on my western horizon not unattractive. I have been lucky to have been married again in my Third Age; both Peter and I just love living on our property the way it is and enjoy what it offers.

Pasture cropping workshop Hopefuls for LLS Boards Press Release If you have an interest in improving the grazing potential of your property, you are invited to attend a workshop on pasture cropping, to be held at 'Bobar,' Braidwood on Tuesday 11 March. Colin Seis will present information to demonstrate how pasture cropping has the potential to help improve soil health, improve the management and function of pastures and farm profits. “Pasture cropping is the combining of cropping and grazing into one land management system where each one benefits the other. The potential for profit and environmental health in being able to do this are enormous and a lot of landholders in many regions of Australia are showing this to be the case,” Colin Seis said. Participants will have the

opportunity to review information from the 'Bobar' pasture cropping trial, established in 2009 and review the changes occurring within this site.

Win brings dancing in the street By Scott Preston A great day of pub cricket was again played by the Bungendore Royals at the ECG on Sunday 9 February. This time we took on the might of Queanbeyan. The Top Pub was coming to us after a win last week against Walsh’s Hotel and they were thirsty for another scalp. The cricket was great, the weather was hot and the beer was ice cold. Bungendore Royals batted first. Chris Gavel retired (again) on 55 and showed us all that he has plenty of class. Frank Palombi retired hurt due to an ‘old man injury’(OMI) on 38. Someone overheard a conversation saying that the pretty boy didn’t really hurt himself and he just wanted to protect his average. Sandy hit 39, Hobba smacked a quick 24, and with a total of 226 the Royals were

“Dancing in the street continued all night until Shaken took his shirt off. Reality then set in and everyone went home.”

Dancing in the street continued all night until Shaken took his shirt off. Reality then set in and everyone went home. Next game is on 23 February against Walsh’s Hotel. It is the pink stump day, with the proceeds for the day going to the McGrath Foundation for breast cancer, so we hope to see you all there!

CAPTAINS FLAT The Bunyips with the Runners-Up Cup. Captain David Boyd is second from the right Mudchooks already on wing P11 The 2014 year has commenced for the Bungendore Rugby Football Club with a win in the Lt Col Jack Fletcher Memorial Tug-of-War Competition at the Bungendore Show, participation in the Crescent Head Sevens Tournament, the annual general meeting and the start of preseason training. Earlier this month the Mudchooks took a sevens team to Crescent Head rather than going on the big trip to Darwin as in the past two years. However, the local boys found the competition even tougher than Darwin with the team playing three games without managing a win. Nevertheless the trip was a success from a pre-season preparation and

fitness training point of view. Special thanks to the trip sponsors Royal Hotel, Braidwood Soil Construction Services, Supa Glass and Udo’s Bungendore Computer Services. The annual general meeting was held on 10 February with Garry Cook being returned as club president, Peter Callander elected senior vice president, Sandy Beggs junior vicepresident/treasurer, Alison Cook secretary/registrar and James Pryde club captain. David McDonald has been re-appointed head coach assisted by Sio Langi. The 2014 season Monaro competition draw has been released with the competition consisting of five teams playing three rounds. It will commence on Saturday 2 May with C5

By Penny Sillis The Lake George Bungendore Bunyips unfortunately couldn’t back up with a repeat performance on Saturday 21 December. Having beaten the Coolavin Cowboys the week before, the boys missed a number of chances in the Goulburn Cricket Second Grade Competition One Day Final. The Cowboys batted first, for a total of 114. Excellent bowling by Dan Bozic, with 6 for 18, gave our boys some momentum going into bat. ‘Nads’ Thivy was

the Bunyips top scorer, with 22, followed by Steve Duhigg on 16. A middle order collapse saw the ‘Yips with a total of 82. The boys were magnanimous in defeat, promising the Cowboys a return bout in the season proper, which begins in the New Year. The Cowboys have finally won the One Day Final, after 13 years of competing in the Second Grade. Well done to the Lake George Bungendore Bunyips for getting into the final, and giving it their best shot!

BUNGENDORE SENIOR OZTAG REPORT By Ken Gordon It was a real mix of results as we get half-way through this part of the competition. We had our first draw since the break and some very close results, as well as a few high scoring games. It is still great to see the spirit in which the majority of the games are played and the support provided by players and families.
