Councils will also feel sting of Federal Budget Press Release NSW councils and their communities have been handed a $288 million funding hit to basic community services and infrastructure upgrades, following the release of the 2014/15 Federal Budget. President of Local Government NSW, Cr Keith Rhoades AFSM, said NSW councils now face a four-year projected shortfall of $287.7 million thanks to the Australian Government’s decision not to increase Financial Assistance Grants in line with CPI and population increases. “The freeze on these vital grants will have a significant impact on the lives of everyday Australians who are

used to, and expect, quality services, roads and facilities from their local councils. “Starting 2014/15, the alarming decision to pause any increase to these essential grants will continue to grow and exacerbate. “If no change is made to the Australian Government’s calculations for Financial Assistance Grants, the shortfall for NSW councils in 2014/15 will be $29.9M, $$62.2M in 2015/16, $95.8M in 2016/17 and $99.8M in 2017/18. “Unfortunately the communities hardest hit will be those in rural and regional council areas, which rely more heavily on Financial Assistance Grants due to their small rate bases and extensive road networks.

“These grants are used to maintain a wide range of infrastructure including local roads, bridges, recreation facilities, libraries, cultural facilities, neighbourhood centres and a variety of services to children, young people, the elderly and people

with disability. “I’d like to know how the Australian Government expects councils to continue servicing their communities to the standards they expect and deserve without putting up their rates.” While the Roads to Recov-

“..rural and regional councils rely more heavily on FAGs due to their small rate bases and extensive road networks.”

ery (R2R) and the Bridge Renewal Programs appear to be wins for the Local Government sector, Cr Rhoades said the freeze on the Financial Assistance Grants in effect cancels out what would be welcome budget news. “The Australia Government has committed an additional $350 million R2R funding for 2015/16 and $200 million for Black Spots funding for 215/16 and 2016/17, as well as providing a $300 million program for bridge renewal, to be spread over five years, which will begin in 2014/15. “Councils are responsible for 90 per cent of NSW’s roads by length and it’s essential that every kilometre of our transport network is in a satisfac-

tory condition, as the nation heavily relies on our road infrastructure to move goods, produce and people. “While it’s relieving to hear that the Australian Government is maintaining the R2R funding and is investing in our bridge network, these grants are tied to that funding and councils will now need to consider how to fill the funding void left by the indexation freeze on Financial Assistance Grants,” Cr Rhoades said. Palerang Mayor Pete Harrison said his Council is now looking at a $75k shortfall in the coming financial year as a result of the Budget, which will hurt.

Mobile fix needs clever plan

WCA President Jenny Richards, Parliamentary Secretary Paul Fletcher and Federal Member Angus Taylor Press Release Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has pledged to work closely with the Wamboin community to find a clever plan to fix mobile phone blackspots. Mr Taylor hosted a visit

to Wamboin this week by Federal Parliamentary Secretary on Communications Paul Fletcher, who is responsible for the Government’s $100 million Mobile Coverage Programme. “I recognise this is one

Councils feel sting of Budget F1 Grant Scheme might not sound like much, but it means that our budget for community infrastructure will effectively decrease by CPI each year the freeze remains. "And, while people might think that Canberra is fat

and can take a hit, it needs to be remembered that 47% of our population depend on Canberra for their employment and a wide range of services, so any hit on Canberra will be felt in Palerang," Pete Harrison said.

of the top priorities for people living outside the major centres across my electorate. At the Wamboin meeting we had representatives from Windellama, Bywong, Bungendore, Murrumbateman and Wamboin itself. “Paul heard very clearly what the issues were around mobile blackspots. He heard small business owners, farmers and community organisations about the impacts on business. He heard from the mayor about impacts on economic growth. He heard from parents and

emergency services representatives about the impacts on welfare and lifestyle. “The main message back from Paul was that we needed to gather information which would make it easier for the telecommunications carriers to fix the problems; can existing television or RFS (Rural Fire Service) towers be used for mobile transmission, are landowners happy to grant road access to base station sites, can councils help with planning approvals. He said Government would look at putting money on the table as an incentive to the carriers– Telstra, Optus and Vodaphone- to bring plans to fruition. As he pointed out, the average cost to build a base station (or tower) from scratch is about $600,000 and this varies wildly depending on location. Infrastructure costs are a fraction of that, if a tower is already there. “He also said the Mobile Coverage Programme will involve a competitive selection process in the second half of the year, amongst telecommunications carriers and in relation to potential sites. We need clever plans to leverage as much funding as possible from the carriers. “I will work hard with councils, community groups and landowners to get the best result,” Mr Taylor said.

“Government will look at putting money on the table as an incentive to the carriers.. to bring plans to fruition.”

Village Bazaar was booked out

Mothers Day spent chained to construction equipment

Annette Schneider and Felicity Crombach at the Maules Creek mine Press Release On Mothers Day Annette Schneider of Burra and Felicity Crombach of Sydney chained themselves to construction equipment at the site of Whitehaven Coal’s controversial Maules Creek mine site in the Leard State Forest, halting work on the new rail line. Both mothers of two, Annette and Felicity took the action to highlight their concerns for the future of their children’s generation. Their action came the day after protesters shut down Newcastle coal trains for two hours. Annette Schneider said, “My children have just started their adult lives and they should have a chance to determine their own lives, free from the effects of catastrophic climate change. It’s up to governments to help us deal with this fossil fuel crisis. They are failing us and we need honest people in

government to help us deal with the climate crisis.” Felicity Crombach said Maules Creek mine investors and key players have recently been implicated in the ICAC investigation and the subsequent corruption scandal sweeping NSW politics. “There is so much corruption and I believe that mining companies run the government. They have professional lobbyists that pay to get into the ear of politicians.. It needs to stop,” Felicity said. Later in the morning police arrived, cut the chains from the two mothers and arrested them. After being processed at Narrabri Police station and fined with trespass related charges they returned to the camp where they were spoiled with flowers and chocolate, like every mother should be on this day. The Leard Forest Alliance have called for the mine P4

By Ian Johnsson Fortunately the early Sunday fog down in the Molonglo didn’t reach as far as Stoney Creek Community Hall car park as a record number of 36 stallholders gathered for Carwoola’s annual Village Bazaar and car boot sale. The booked-out event attracted sellers from as far afield as Yass, Theodore, Bywong, Captain’s Flat and Bungendore who joined in with enthusiastic locals in selling and bartering a wide variety of recycled and new goods. A steady stream of buyers and local residents looking for bargains continued through the morning, enjoying the autumn weather and catching up with friends and neighbours. This popular community event was again supported with a very generous donation of a ute-load of locally-adapted native plants from Hillview Nursery in Carwoola, which, together with the CCA BBQ and the Kamilaroi Coffee van proved very popular. Around $600 was raised to assist Carwoola Community Association activities later in the year. The CCA Committee thanks all who attended for their contribution to what was again a very enjoyable occasion.

Lake George supports �Two Blokes' Press Release The Lake George Hotel will be sponsoring 'Two Blokes' in this year's Sh!tbox Rally from Perth to Darwin via the Kimberley. The funds raised by participating will be donated to the Cancer Council. Two Blokes 'Adventure for funD' was formed in August 2013 with the vision of becoming a dominant force in raising awareness and funding for various charities and organisations. Darren was just 12 years old when first diagnosed with cancer in December 1996. After a year of chemotherapy and operations he was declared in remission although more challenges lay ahead. At the age of 17 he was given two options from his doctors, and this led to his decision to have his leg amputated below the knee in December 1999.  Matt has a background

in media where he was the proprietor of a video production business before focusing on aviation endeavours and sppeedway racing. He had a close call in 2012 with a serious health scare and spent time in and out of hospital. In a matter of weeks he lost over 20% of his body weight and was diagnosed with pancreatitis.   Experiencing significant events in life, such as Matt and Darren have, has had an unmistakable effect in sharpening their focus on what is important in life and what they are capable of when they put your mind to it.  The understanding that there are people out there in similar situations that need help and support was something they both wanted to get behind.  They encourage you to follow "Two Blokes" on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to keep ‘entertained’ with our exploits.

Community transport funds B'dore Rodeo C'tee AGM Press Release The NSW Government has secured over $80,000 in Federal Government funding for community transport in the Monaro to help people who have a disability or are too frail to travel independently, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro announced recently. “The funding boost is provided under the Home and Community Care (HACC) program and aims to help people live independently by providing transport to shopping, medical and other appointments,” Mr Barilaro said. “Community transport is an important link that helps people stay independent when they can’t drive or need extra help with things like getting their shopping home. “Of course, we thank the hardworking volunteers who give their time to ensure services like this can operate.” In the Monaro, Bombala Community Transport, Snowy

River Cooma Monaro Community Transport and Valmar-Queanbeyan Community Transport provide community transport services using HACC funding. Valmaar will receive $9,812, an increase of 16% over last year's funding. The Monaro region will receive $84,712 as part of a larger $12 million or 30 per cent statewide increased in HACC funding and will result in 2719 extra community transport trips in the Monaro region. “The statewide increase will provide around 389,000 extra community transport trips every year, bringing the number of HACC funded trips in NSW to around 1.6 million annually. “This is a significant increase that will make a big difference to our ability to help people connect with local services through community transport,” Mr C3 Barilaro said.

Press Release Palerang Council is asking the local community to join a state wide call to stop the ongoing reduction in funding from successive NSW State Governments, and protect the future of their libraries. Libraries are often the most well-used and valued public facilities in the community, but the ability of Palerang Council to maintain service levels at the Bungendore and Braidwood Libraries may be at risk due to deteriorating State funding. Expenditure on public libraries from the state has decreased as a proportion of total public library expenditure from 23% in 1980 to only 7% in 2013. This has and will continue to impact on the ability of local libraries to meet the needs of their communities. This is an historic issue that has now reached a crisis point.

The libraries are seeking the support of everyone in the Palerang Council area. We need as many signatures as possible on a petition requesting increased and sustainable library funding to be tabled in the Lower House of the State Government. These petitions are at Bungendore and Braidwood Libraries. Our local public libraries play a very important part in our community life. Libraries bring people together, facilitate learning, connect us with information and ideas and provide a wonderful source of recreational pleasure. Libraries have evolved to become vibrant hubs that are seen as safe, welcoming spaces that serve a very important community-building role. There is no doubt libraries improve the quality of life of everyone who uses them.

Bungendore Venturers' Canoe Camp

1st Bungendore Venturers negotiating the Shoalhaven Gorge

By Greg Simms Ever wanted to spend a night camped on the banks of a river, surrounded by tall sandstone cliffs and prehistoric rainforest? Can you see yourself beside a small, gently crackling fire, as you prepare your meal after a hard day's paddle?   Bungendore Venturers did just that in late March as 11 youth members and four leaders spent a weekend canoeing in the Shoalhaven Gorge.   In August 2013 Bungendore Scouts purchased eight second hand canoes on a custom made trailer and have been busily restoring them to as new condition. This was the first overnight canoe camp conducted by the Venturer unit and the canoes performed extremely well, proving to be stable and easily

paddled. Each canoe carried two Venturers and around 40kg of gear in dry bags and poly barrels on the 26km round trip.   Venturers were treated to a rare sight as waterfalls caused by the recent rains cascaded off the cliffs lining the gorge and disappeared into the dense bush clinging to the banks of the river. Bellbird song filled the bush and sightings of sea eagles, goannas and a lone goat kept us entertained.   Next term the Vennies plan to paddle a section of the Murrumbidgee River below Burrinjuck.

Memorial Hall is accessible

“Not only do we have some great things to buy, but you will also be supporting the ongoing work on the Hall..” C2 A bright red Dodge AT4 353 truck made an appearance for the 100 years of Dodge in 2014. For a bit of military, a WWII era Willy’s jeep and an Austin Champ Scout Wagon were also on display. There was a good showing of Falcons with a superb XP wagon, two tubbed XP utes, a picture perfect XY sedan, a sweet XR ute, a neat XB GS and a couple of clean XCs. The modern era was represented by some BA and FG GT’s showing what a pity it is that Ford will soon cease manufacturing these great Aussie performance cars. The Holdens were there with a HX panel van, a rare VP Senator 5000i

and great HQ coupe and EHs. To demonstrate the variety, a rare Aussie built Bowell Nagari was on display along with a couple of great Plymouths, a Fiat, Alfa Romeo, a Customline ute, a factory RHD Camaro, two Ariel motorbikes, a Harley and a brand new Kawasaki. And the stationary engine display brought back many memories from a foregone era and prompted some deep reminiscing. The Wamboin Community Association's Peter Evans said it was a fantastic day and the best part was the relaxed country atmosphere and the huge variety of vehicles on display. Press Release

The letter from Elizabeth Vitek regarding inaccessible heritage buildings (Mirror 14.5.2014) has prompted me to write. I am on the Committee for the War Memorial Hall and would like to let everyone know that we are currently working on renovations. We were lucky to be given a grant from the Bendigo Bank to help fund our improvements and so far we have had the building completely re-wired and updated some of the equipment in the kitchen. Currently we are in the process of drawing up plans to build new toilets and also to have proper disabled ramp access to the front and side doors. Our aim is to bring the building facilities up to date while still retaining the heritage aspects. Our next task is to

“.drawing up plans to build new toilets and also to have proper disabled ramp access to the front and side doors.”

have the roof and guttering fixed and to get the roof space insulated. The Hall is owned in trust by the village and is open for all to use. Sadly it is starting to show its age and it is an uphill battle to keep up with the maintenance. The Bungendore Market helps to raise funds for the Hall from gold coin donation at the door. I was sorry to hear that Elizabeth can no longer come to the market but would like to let her know that there is a side door with no steps, and if she decides to come, she just has to ask for us to open it and we would be happy to do so. We usually keep it closed, especially in winter, otherwise a gale can blow through. I ask all Bungendore residents to come along to the market sometime. Not only do we have some great things to buy, but you will also be supporting the ongoing work on the Hall, a great resource for the village.

R5 supporters �hoodwinked'

Burra residents forgotten

I am astounded that in two recent letters to the MirrorGeneveive Cramsie ‘No desire to subdivide’ and Mareeta Grundy ‘Supporters, opponents agree’ these R5 zone supporters continue to deny important facts, and in particular have failed to appreciate what R5 zoning stands for. The core purpose of R5 zones is to allow for peri urban development. This is obvious from the Yass Shire maps where this zoning has (quite sensibly) been adopted around their existing towns and villages. Genevieve Cramsie references Council Fact Sheet 10 with implication that green demon enforcers will interfere with general farming activities in Bywong/Wamboin. This is balderdash and, to paraphrase a well known politician, “Fact Sheet 10 is dead, buried and cremated”. Fact Sheet 9 is now the extant guidance document pertaining to agricultural activities and– to repeat myself from a previous letter- Fact Sheet 9 quite concisely defines extensive agriculture as "the production of crops or fodder for commercial purposes, the grazing of livestock for commercial purposes, bee keeping and dairy production". It QUITE CLEARLY STATES THAT “The draft Palerang

I have been following the Palerang LEP zoning issue on and off for some time. I have my views and I have submitted them to the Council. That’s bye the bye.  What is getting up my goat is the constant reference to what the residents of Wamboin and Bywong have said, what they think, and how many of them think it. We NEVER hear what the folks in other parts of the Shire might feel about the issue except for the occasional speculative throw-away line. 

Local Environmental Plan 2013 does not require development consent for extensive agriculture in the land use zones RU1 Primary Production, E3 Environmental Management and E4 Environmental Living.” That is, extensive agricultural activities (including for commercial purposes) presently allowed under 1(d) will still be allowed without development consent under the E4 zoning in Bywong/Wamboin. To continue to assert that agriculture will be curtailed under E4 is just repeating a fallacious mantra denying the factual situation. It should be noted that no environmental restrictions can be imposed other than those written specifically into the existing PLEP. As we know this is currently under review by Minister Pru Goward. Genevieve Cramsie asserts that people who support E4 live on rocky blocks and don’t appreciate her primary production activities. This is a gross generalisation, and in our case we brought our 'buggered sheep paddock' some 30 years ago, complete with rock outcrops and all. Over that time we have worked to 'un-bugger' it to the point where now it supports a small flock of sheep in a sustainable manner. From our perspective an E4 zoning will better protect the carrying capacity and certain unique features of our land than would extensive development of our surroundC3 ing areas– a prospect

I live in Burra and this just reinforces the idea, already deeply embedded in the minds of many Burra and Urila ratepayers (and no doubt elsewhere in the Shire) that we are largely irrelevant. We just don’t matter, EXCEPT insofar as Palerang needs the revenue that we represent. Is it any wonder that many have expressed a wish to be joined to Queanbeyan? Kerry Bos Williamsdale Road, Burra

Mirror story is �disturbing' “..have worked to ‘un-bugger it’ to the point where it now supports a small flock of sheep in a sustainable manner.” C2 strongly implied by the basis of an R5 zoning. I fully support Mrs Cramsie’s desire to continue her, and my own farming activities, but fail to see how R5 zoning is in any way conducive to this. On the other hand E4 is clearly supportive of such endeavours. Apart from a general blackguarding of Council, Mareeta Grundy passionately asserts that the R5 lobby are not 'under hand developers'. That is probably very true of the majority of R5 supporters, but there appears to be a hard core nucleus in this group advocating for this anomalous zoning proposal whose purpose is to open the doors

for future large scale residential developments in Bywong/ Wamboin. If this were not the case then the anti-E4 group would have much more credibility (and some degree of sympathy from myself) had they advocated for an RU– ie. a primary production zoning. Given the zeal with which the R5 lobby is pressing it’s case it is reasonable to conclude that a development push is encouraging the opposition to E4, and that many of the R5 supporters have been 'hoodwinked' into advocating for this inappropriate zoning proposal. Bob Angel, The Mountain Road, Bungendore

Your lead story 'Will proper planning or influence peddling win?' (Mirror 14.5.2014) disturbs me greatly. It is a dog whistle up there with the best (worst) of them.  You are suggesting that voters should not have the right to make representations to their local member, or a Minister, or even a councillor. 

“Your lead story 'Will proper planning or influence peddling win?' disturbs me greatly. It is a dog whistle up there with the best (worst) of them.”

Let me remind your readers that democracy is more than just voting every so often, it is participating in debate, putting forward views, arguing for a point of view, with elected officials making decisions and those working for them.  It seems I am an influence peddler by your definition, because that is what I have done– participate in public debates, write letters like this, and, yes, write to Members and Ministers. It is strange, but I can feel another letter coming on.. or maybe a couple.. Ed Cory Emu Flat Lane, Bywong

“[Visitors] were aided by self-guided tour signs explaining over 30 of the different elements within the farm.” Press Release With forecasts of temperatures hovering around 0 degrees, fortune shone on Caroola Farm when the sun came out on the weekend for the first Permaculture Open Day at Caroola Farm. Information and produce stalls began setup at 9am, battling the winds but with smiles on their faces. Volunteer carpark attendants got right on the job managing to park over 200 cars at a time in the front paddock– and the pasture seems to have survived the onslaught. The crowds started rolling in before 10am to make it to the fabulous line-up of talks. Brochures and farm maps were scarce by 11am, the Learning Centre was packed and the feedback on presenters was very positive. Guided Farm Tours were oversubscribed but they were aided by the layout of self-guided tour signs explaining over 30 of the different elements within the farm. Tours included the windbreak tree systems, forest gardens, breeding poultry, polytunnel and storage systems, kitchen garden, main vegetable garden and water systems. Further into the paddock visitors were able to view the alpacas, cattle, sheep and the pastured chicken and ducks.

The tea and coffee stall hosted by FuturePLANS (Palerang Local Action Network for Sustainability) was a hit on such a cold day, with yummy cakes to boot! There was produce sampling of Caroola meat, dumpling tasting and hot pumpkin soup on offer as well. After each tour the market stalls were busy, along with the kids activities of slinky making, potting up seedlings and holding baby animals. There was great interest in the compost toilets although, with so many photos being taken, they were not the most private place on the farm. Caroola Farm would like to thank everyone who came along, to volunteer, talk, sell produce or just have a look around. For more information on Caroola Farm, or to order local produce, go to www. caroolafarm.com.au or email penny@caroolafarm.com.au

�Feathery Things’ opening New Queanbeyan art prize Press Release Queanbeyan Mayor Tim Overall has announced a new major art prize for Queanbeyan. Cr Overall said the $3000 Clearwater Sculpture Prize will be a three-day open air exhibition on the foreshore of the Queanbeyan River and will coincide with the inaugural Queanbeyan River Festival on 11 October. Cr Overall said expressions of interest from artists of all abilities were now being sought. “This exciting non-acquisitive prize will consist of a major cash award of $3000 which will be complemented by a handful of smaller awards,” he said. “The concept for the event centres on creating community awareness and engagement with the Queanbeyan River, while promoting the river and surrounds as a recreational space. Entrants are encouraged to take inspiration from the river environment.”

Game Tigers shouldn't have lost

Tiger Jacob Rayner about to receive the ball

Tigerettes' game of two halves

By Tony Rayner The Infigen Energy Bungendore Tigers took on the Harden Hawks at Harden last Saturday. The Tigers first 20 minutes was outstanding with the forwards Jason Kolber, Todd Buckley, Alex Rodham and Cameron Guihot taking the ball over the advantage line. Cameron Guihot’s first 20 minutes in particular was very good. This allowed new halves Ben Rayner and Kurt Hamilton to control the game and Kurt’s kicking game was terrific. The halves control allowed the outside backs some clean ball which resulted in tries to Drew Buckley and Steven Death. The Tigers raced to a 14 nil lead. However dropped ball and silly penalties allowed Harden to build pressure and they scored a try one minute from half time. The second half also saw the Tigers give away silly penalties but

they were still able to score a try to take the score to 18. The Hawks hit back with tries and, after a dropped ball with three minutes to go and a successful conversion, the full time score was18 all. This was a game the Tigers shouldn't have lost, and fewer penalties and dropped ball will see the Tigers turn into a very competitive side. Tries to Drew Buckley, Steven Death, Alex Rodham, Cameron Guihot. Jason Colber was outstanding up front, carting the ball up the whole game and tackling himself to a standstill.
