Green light for pedestrians
Canberra Pedestrian Forum’s Leon Arundell has successfully campaigned for improvements to traffic light sequencing on the intersection of Picture: Elesa Lee Northbourne, Macarthur and Wakefield Avenues.
By Naomi Fallon ....................................................... CANBERRA walkers now have a safer, faster route to the city thanks to improvements made to traffic light sequencing on Northbourne Avenue. After lobbying the Government for five years, the Canberra Pedestrian Forum is pleased a “road danger black spot” has been alleviated at the intersection of Northbourne, Macarthur and Wakefield avenues. The most significant change, according to forum convenor Leon Arundell, is the introduction of an “auto-start” for pedestrians crossing Wakefield and Macarthur Avenues. This means that the pedestrian signal now goes green whenever the vehicle signal goes green. Mr Arundell believes pedestrians are now more likely to cross the road safely at this particular intersection. “Most people were ignoring the lights, thinking instead that they could use their own judgment about whether it was safe to cross,” he said. “Now the lights tell you when it’s safe to cross.” Roads ACT manager of traffic signals Michael Day confirmed that the sequencing had been changed. “We had some discussions with Canberra Pedestrian Forum ... and Leon pointed out that this intersection was an issue,” he said. Mr Day said vehicles wouldn’t be inconvenienced by the changes. “It’s a means of reducing the delays for pedestrians … we already do it at other intersections,” he said. Despite that, Mr Day couldn’t identify any other intersections where the lights would be retimed in the near future. “It’s something we could introduce on a needs basis, it’s not something we can do quickly, it does involve some work on our behalf,” he said.

Concerns for future of Garema Place By Naomi Fallon ....................................................... AS Skate in the City wrapped up over the weekend, Garema Place business owners bide farewell to the muchneeded pedestrian traffic. While it was once a bustling shopping district, vacant shopfronts have been steadily increasing throughout the area over the past few years. Although he appreciates the extra business generated by events such as Skate in the City, Impact Comics coowner Mal Briggs wants to see a more permanent solution to Garema Place’s woes. “It was good to see a lot of people getting about Garema Place, the rink was packed all the time,’’ he said. “I’m dead keen on the event, but the only real measure of how something is positively affecting a space is when new businesses open up.” Mr Briggs believes more people would be encouraged to shop in Garema Place if the amenities were better. “There are no tables that anyone can sit at … and there’s no public toilets. I’ve had two children wet themselves in my store,” he said. Now that Canberra Centre owner QIC has lodged plans for more than $500 million worth of office, residential and retail space in Cooyong Street, Mr Briggs has further concerns for the future of Garema Place. He says the development – which would demolish an existing outdoor car park to construct a building up to 14-storeys high – would only worsen the plight of Garema Place business owners. “Nobody’s coming outside the mall anymore, there’s nothing feeding out
Impact Comics co-owner Mal Briggs feels more should be done to fill empty shopfronts and bring more businesses to Garema Place. Picture: Elesa Lee here,” he said. “It doesn’t matter how many people come for one particular event – if there’s no businesses out here for them to see, they won’t come back.
“Garema place is a nice empty venue to put on events … which is great when they’re on, but in between those times you’re not going to go there.”
While he agreed moving his store was an option, Mr Briggs says he shouldn’t have to. “I don’t know where we’d go to be honest,” he said.
“If we went inside a mall that would completely change our economic model. I like the outside in Canberra. Sure it gets cold but on the nice days it’s amazing.”
Future advantages of NBN hard to predict

Winter wonderland success By Naomi Fallon ....................................................... THE city’s first ice skating rink has been deemed such a success that organisers are already working on next year’s event. Skate in the City was originally meant to conclude on Friday, but due to great demand the event was extended until Sunday evening. Canberra CBD Limited chief executive Stephen Gregory said the event went very well, particularly during school holidays. “The uptake of skating was good and from a tourism point of view it had a real impact,’’ he said. “By the time we close the rink we’ll have seen 18,000 people come through ... that’s a lot of people during a very cold part of the year.” Mr Gregory said there had been a good reaction from local traders, who believed the rink had had a positive impact on their businesses. “I think most of them were sceptical at first. But there has been a lot of interest in working with us on the event next year,” he said. While he confirmed Skate in the City would return next year, Mr
Gregory said CBD Limited planned to make some changes. The rink size of 360sqm will be increased and will incorporate a separate skating area for children. In addition to daily skate sessions for the public, special sessions will also be held for advanced skaters and people with a disability. Mr Gregory said session times were also likely to change. “The difficulty is always going to be around Monday to Friday during the day,” he said. “We held sessions from 10am, so we’ll look at a model that will work for us.” Considering the skate rink’s success, CBD Ltd has been thinking about event ideas for summer. “Our board is already starting to think outside the square,” Mr Gregory said. “Canberrans could see a roller skating rink installed in Garema Place during January. Anything is possible. “But whatever we do, we’re not going to set up a rink in Garema place 365 days a year.”
I WAS 11 years old when I bought my first computer. It was 1984, and the machine was an Aquarius. It had rubber keys, a cassette tape drive, and 3.5 kilobytes of memory. I used it to write simple programs in the BASIC language. Later that year, I upgraded to a VIC-20, with a whopping 5 kilobytes of memory. At about this time, Sydney Morning Herald computer editor Gareth Powell said that there was no advantage to any program in going beyond 16 kilobytes of memory. The fact is, we’re not particularly good at forecasting where technology will take us. When I sent my first emails in 1996, they were text-only. In fact, most of us thought that email would be like the telegrams that previous generations had used, just faster and cheaper. Today, photos and video comprise most of the traffic flowing around the globe. Emails of 16 kilobytes or larger arrive in my inbox every few minutes. So it’s little wonder that some critics of the National Broadband Network
MEMBER FOR FRASER can’t imagine it as being anything more than a way of getting faster access to YouTube and Facebook. Unfortunately, this just repeats the same mistake as previous decades – failing to imagine how a new technology will transform life and work. The Government’s current plan is to provide 93 per cent of households with speeds of 100 megabytes per second. But in a recent trial of the network at Broken Hill, we saw speeds of 100 gigabytes per second: one-thousand
times faster than hoped for. But even at 100 megabytes per second, it will be possible to use the internet in fundamentally new ways. As anyone who has used Skype on a current connection will know, the jerky picture is better than nothing, but hardly ideal. The NBN will enable high-definition video-conferencing: letting patients speak with a medical specialist from home, allowing students to participate in distance learning from afar, and permitting teleworkers to participate in team meetings while working from home. Starting in Gungahlin, the NBN will be progressively rolled out across the ACT over the next few years. We can’t predict all the ways it will transform our society for the better, but I expect that within a few decades, I’ll look back on today’s internet with the same wry amusement that I look at my old Aquarius. ■ Andrew Leigh is the federal member for Fraser. For more information on the timing of the NBN rollout, see www.nbnco.com.au
Inner South Canberra Community Council Robin Brown and Peter Wurfel By ....................................................... IN THE Time to Talk Canberra 2030 initiative, it was asserted that “Improving Canberra’s transport network, and more particularly, making public transport, cycling and walking a real alternative to the car has been, and continues to be, a priority for the ACT Government”. It is not clear how this is being applied to older residential areas, such as much of Inner South Canberra. While the broad planning philosophy in establishing Canberra was characterised by developing satellite towns connected by a Y pattern of transport corridors, development proceeded on the basis that a large portion of commuter movement would be within areas. Because ‘Government’ is largely located within the
Parliamentary Triangle an increasing proportion of commuter movements in and out of the “triangle” is through adjoining suburbs. Continued reliance on motor vehicles for these movements is not viable, nor is it consistent with the ACT Government’s objectives. Just 13.5 per cent of those who travel to work in South Canberra actually live there. It is not clear how or when fast and efficient public transport will become available to those residents living in suburbs such as Deakin, Yarralumla, Red Hill, Griffith and Narrabundah and for those who are required to work in the Inner South. To change habits people must be amenable to alternatives to the motor car, so it is necessary to operate reliable and efficient public transport,
and to fully integrate foot and cycle paths within these areas. Where footpaths exist in many older suburbs they are overgrown and in need of repair and street lighting is inadequate, posing risks of personal injury and safety. Our Governments need to develop clear and fully funded strategies which articulate how older suburbs will be included in its vision. Residents need to be engaged in a meaningful process which will enable them to describe what is important to them. It is also important that the Commonwealth Government be a party to this process as after all it is their employees which contribute to much of the traffic and parking congestion. Until this is done, residents and workers alike will be reluctant to change their behaviour.

warmest end to July in 36 years with the last four days warmer than 15 degrees. It was also the coldest July in nine years with the minimum temperature on average minus 0.7 degrees. Canberra recorded the driest July in four years with only 25.2mm falling on 13 rain days. While this is three more rain days than average, Mr Fisher said the rain had been quite light which meant high levels had not been recorded on these days. The territory will enjoy slightly more normal temperatures this week before a cold change travels through the region in time for the weekend. Mr Fisher said the rest of August should remain relatively normal with overnight temperatures being “on the cool side” with day time temperatures about 12 degrees.

Meredith Clisby By ....................................................... CANBERRANS shivered through the coldest morning in 17 years last Thursday. While it was below freezing all night it got colder after sunrise with the temperature dropping to minus 8 degrees at 7.22am. This is the coldest temperature recorded for the territory since 1994. Weatherzone meteorologist Josh Fisher said it was normal for the temperature to drop even after the sun appeared for the day because there hadn’t been enough time for it to heat the region. The extreme cold was caused by a high pressure ridge, which produced clear skies and light winds. This means the day’s heat is free to radiate to space making it perfect conditions for frost. Despite the frosty finish, it was the

Local worker awarded scholarship A DEDICATED indigenous care worker has been awarded an annual government-funded scholarship for women. Akeshia Dart received this year’s $20,000 Audrey Fagan Post-Graduate Scholarship, which – named after former ACT Chief Police Officer Audrey Fagan – helps recipients undertake professional development in the areas of law enforcement, care and protection and victim support. Through her role in the Community Service Directorate’s Out of Home Care-Foster Care/Kinship Care Unit, Ms Dart recruits and trains potential carers to support the transition of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in care. ACT Minister for Women Joy Burch believed that Ms Dart represented the kind of person the scholarship aims to support – someone who is passionate about their work and committed to improving the lives of those they work with. “The scholarship committee was particularly impressed by her commitment to improving the social and emotional well being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,” she said. The scholarship will enable Ms Dart to complete her Masters of Social Work, Professional Qualifying. Lesley Bonney, Therese Haywood and Megan Skillicorn celebrate the Vinnies Night Patrol van’s 10th Picture: Elesa Lee anniversary.
Vinnies marks a decade of help Night patrol makes a difference to all By Naomi Fallon ................................................... A DECADE ago Megan Skillicorn had no idea she was starting something that would come to be an important part of many people’s lives. At just 19 she took on the role of coordinator of the brand new St Vincent de Paul Night Patrol – which celebrates its 10th anniversary this week. The van – which delivers food, clothing and blankets to Canberra’s homeless – came about as Vinnies realised there was a gap in their services and a need for assistance to be provided after 5pm. For three-and-a-half years Ms Skillicorn managed about 200 volunteers for the program, which initially ran three nights a week, but quickly increased to seven nights. “The aim is to engage with people on the street, offering support and
compassion while upholding their dignity,” she said. It didn’t take long for Ms Skillicorn to realise that the service was about much more than the food they provided. “Some of the moments you have when you’re in a position to listen to someone, and what they share with you ... I think some of those moments have just been incredible,” she said. “We’d have our regulars as well – I expect they still would – and the volunteers would get really worried when they don’t see them, because we build up such a connection and such a rapport.” But it was one man who would approach the van time and time again without any shoes that Ms Skillicorn still remembers. “We thought that was so terrible ... we would always try and get
him some shoes,” she said. “But one night he said to me ‘no, I like to have my feet planted firmly on the ground.’ And I thought ‘wow – who am I to judge you?’ “It’s very humbling what they share with you.” Current night patrol coordinator Lesley Bonney says about 800 to 1000 people a month approach the van. “It varies, but we see anywhere between 30 and 40 a night,” she said. “That number might drop way down to 15 on cold nights.” She said anyone looking for a chat and something to eat was always welcome to visit the night patrol. “We don’t always know who is homeless – they don’t come to the van with a sticker on their forehead,” she said.

Needle swap program support Plan to stop spread of diseases in prison She said while the move may not be welcomed by the community, the ACT Government had a real chance to help stop the spread of blood-borne diseases. “If it can stop just one person getting Hepatitis C it will have done its job,” Ms Davis said. She said it was also crucial that services such as the ACT Hepatitis Resource Centre received enough funding to provide education and support. The resource centre works with prisoners in the Alexander Maconochie Centre. She said the needle program should be just one part of a comprehensive approach to tackling Hepatitis C. Community and Public Sector Union’s Vince McDevitt said the union was still examining the report and held a reportback meeting for members yesterday morning (Monday). He said the union had identified a range of issues underpinning their opposition to a needle program but most of them centred on occupational health and safety. “We’ll be looking at whether or not these concerns have been addressed,” Mr McDevitt said. “It’s about prison officers being concerned about being confronted in their workplace by a drug affected prisoner wielding a hypodermic needle.” While the union is sensitive about the Government’s wish to reduce the spread of blood borne diseases, they claim no inmate has contracted Hepatitis C in the prison. “We have not seen one demonstrated case of someone entering the AMC being Hep C clear and contracting Hep C in here,” Mr McDevitt said. However, the Burnet report indicated there could be other cases of transmissions but the current testing practices were inadequate to reliably estimate this.

The Alexander Maconochie Centre.
By Meredith Clisby ........................................................... A NEW report has advised the ACT Government to implement a contained needle and syringe program inside the health centre of the Alexander Maconochie Centre. While health groups have welcomed the recommendation, the union representing the corrections staff are yet to publically give their position. The report, completed by Public Health Association of Australia chief executive Michael Moore, was delivered to the Government last week. Mr Moore has recommended that a needle exchange program be run by an external provider within the prison’s current health centre. It is proposed correctional officers would escort prisoners to the health centre and all supply of syringes and injecting would take place there. This would ensure the syringes could not be returned into the general prison population. Mr Moore suggested a flexible approach to implementing the needle program, whereby if the first model is not found to be successful an alternative model is used. The next most favoured approach is a contained program delivered by ACT Health/nursing staff in the health centre. The last suggested model is the placement of one for one exchange syringe vending machines in the prison. The ACT Government engaged the association in May to investigate different models of implementation of a needle program after the Burnet Institute report found there was a case for one. The executive officer of the ACT Hepatitis Resource Centre, Robyn Davis, said the contained needle program model was a good place to start for a trial but it was important to work out what sort of program would suit Canberra’s prison.

A Noteworthy program
Man sought in 1970s Bilski case THE NSW Government is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the death of Queanbeyan’s Danuta Bilski in the 1970s. The 38-year-old mother of two was killed while she worked in her Disposal Store in Queanbeyan on June 29, 1979. On Monday detectives issued a COMFIT image of a man seen at a Disposal Store on Crawford Street about 11.45am on that day. He is described as being about 40 years of age, with brown collar-length hair, wearing a dark coloured, heavy woollen
‘Battle style jacket’ at the time (close fitting to the waist, open at the front). A male of similar description was reportedly seen to leave the vicinity of the store at about 11.55am on June 29, 1979, carrying a long thin object wrapped in cloth. Police would like to speak with the man depicted in the COMFIT image in relation to this matter.

Canberra Symphony Orchestra’s Kyle Daniel and Justin Bullock play during the Noteworthy Classical Picture: Lannon Harley Music Program at Llewellyn Hall on Wednesday. THE ANU’s Llewellyn Hall opened its doors to local schools this past week, with close to 10,000 students taking part in a Canberra Symphony Orchestra music education program. Now five-years-old, Noteworthy is the only program of its kind in Australia, offering free interactive concerts, workshops and teaching resources for staff and students from
almost half of the ACT’s schools. One of Australia’s leading music education conductors Warwick Potter picked up the baton for Noteworthy for the first time and found it an enjoyable experience. ‘‘It (Noteworthy) offers a real, tangible and practical experience to complement classroom-based learning,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s engaging and interesting, and it makes classical music very fun and enjoyable – as I believe it should be. ‘‘It’s also a very inclusive program. We have activities catering for children from three to 18 years of age, there’s also an outreach program for people with a physical and intellectual disabilities.’’

CWA focuses on community New branch in Belconnen By Meredith Clisby ....................................................... THE women of the Belconnen Country Women’s Association are certainly passionate about the rural communities in the region. Just don’t ask them to bake a cake. The newly formed branch of the long-standing organisation currently has about 26 members, most coming from the Belconnen area. President Philida Sturgiss-Hoy says the group’s major passion is with the country and it tries to have visits to small communities as often as it can. Cooking is not high on the agenda for the ladies. ‘‘We have a rural outlook and I equate rural with community, but quite a lot of our members have rural backgrounds,’’ Ms Sturgiss-Hoy said. ‘‘It’s that spirit of community that I particularly like about CWA.’’ The group has recently raised about $1300 for two small schools on the Monaro and will soon distribute the money. It also recently attended the Jerrawa Show. Ms Sturgiss-Hoy said raising money for rural communities was something the group enjoyed doing. She decided to start a new branch of the association when the city branches grew too big. Canberra now supports four CWA groups in total, including one in Gungahlin. The Belconnen branch is always on the lookout for new members and happily welcomes any women who would like to participate.
Belconnen CWA secretary Margaret Muspratt and president Philida Sturgiss-Hoy say they would welcome any new members into their branch. Picture: Elesa Lee
The president said she had been surprised by how quickly the number of members had increased. Secretary Margaret Muspratt said the common view the public had of CWA members was quite wrong.
‘‘There’s a perception that we’re all old sheilas but we’re not, we have a very diverse group actually,’’ she said. Ms Sturgiss-Hoy said it was important for the community to know the CWA existed in Canberra.
She said in a country town it was obvious where the community groups were, but in a city newcomers could have difficulty finding a connection with local groups. ‘‘It’s really important to have fun
but it’s also that idea of a community group,’’ Ms Sturgiss-Hoy said. The Belconnen Country Women’s Association meets at the Kippax Library on the fourth Monday of each month.
Kangaroo carcasses concern Future advantages of By Meredith Clisby ....................................................... AMAROO residents have been left disgusted after the bodies of two bloodied kangaroos were left in a bus shelter last week. A resident contacted The Chronicle after her husband drove past the Shoalhaven Avenue bus shelter on Sunday morning and saw the bloodied mess. The couple believe the kangaroos had been shot and were then piled up in the shelter with blood splattering the seats and windows. The kangaroos had been removed by Monday. The resident said the shelter had been taped off but school children had been waiting for the bus right next to it for a few days before it was cleaned. She said it was disgusting that people would treat animals in this way. A spokeswoman from Territory and Municipal Services confirmed rangers had removed two kangaroo carcasses from the bus shelter earlier in the week but were not sure how the animals had died. TAMS have not received any official reports of kangaroos being illegally shot in Amaroo and say shooting is not common in the ACT.

I WAS 11-years-old when I bought my first computer. It was 1984, and the machine was an Aquarius. It had rubber keys, a cassette tape drive, and 3.5 kilobytes of memory. I used it to write simple programs in the BASIC language. Later that year, I upgraded to a VIC-20, with a whopping 5 kilobytes of memory. At about this time, Sydney Morning Herald computer editor Gareth Powell said that there was no advantage to any program in going beyond 16 kilobytes of memory. The fact is, we’re not particularly good at forecasting where technology will take us. When I sent my first emails in 1996, they were text-only. In fact, most of us thought that email would be like the telegrams that previous generations had used, just faster and cheaper. Today, photos and video comprise most of the traffic flowing around the globe. Emails of 16 kilobytes or larger arrive in my inbox every few minutes. So it’s little wonder that some critics of the National Broadband Network can’t imagine it as being anything
more than a way getting faster access to YouTube and Facebook. Unfortunately, this just repeats the same mistake as previous decades – failing to imagine how a new technology will transform life and work. The Government’s current plan is to provide 93 per cent of households with speeds of 100 megabytes per second. But in a recent trial of the network at Broken Hill, we saw speeds of 100 gigabytes per second: 1000 times faster than hoped for. But even at 100 megabytes per second, it will be possible to use the internet in fundamentally new ways. As anyone who has used Skype on a current connection will know, the jerky picture is better than nothing, but hardly ideal. The NBN will enable high-definition video-conferencing: letting patients speak with a medical specialist from home, allowing students to participate in distance learning from afar, and permitting teleworkers to participate in team meetings while working from home. Starting in Gungahlin, the NBN will be progressively rolled out across the ACT over the next few years. We can’t predict all the ways it will transform our society for the better, but I expect that within a few decades, I’ll look back on today’s internet with the same wry amusement that I look at my old Aquarius. ■ Andrew Leigh is the federal member for Fraser.

All-Stars face tough challenge Interstate Roller Derby bout

By Naomi Fallon ............................................. CANBERRAâ€™S Vice City Rollers are hoping to come away with a win this weekend as they take on the Sun State Rollergirlâ€™s Fancy Pants at the AIS. The Queensland roller derby team is ranked second in Australia, well beyond that of the ACT representative side. In their last interstate bout at the AIS, Canberraâ€™s all-star team was smashed by the topranking Victoria. But Vice City Rollers spokeswoman Christine Murray â€“ aka Short Stop â€“ says a lot has changed since then. The girls have been training three times a week to build up the skills and fitness required to bring down Queensland. â€œWeâ€™ve played a lot of interstate games since then â€Ś I think weâ€™ve formed more of a team, weâ€™ve bonded a lot,â€? she said. â€œWeâ€™re hoping to come away with a win; weâ€™re going to give it our all.â€? Aside from that, the team has been working on a rollout. â€œThatâ€™s the skater introduction at the beginning of the

Murray said. One distinct advantage that the Canberra side has, according to Murray, is great support from its city. â€œI think the league has developed heaps in the last year,â€? she said. â€œLast year we split into four teams, which was a big step for us. â€œWhatâ€™s also good is that Canberra has really gotten behind us, that doesnâ€™t happen as much in other places. Canberra is amazing.â€?

Chief Minister Katy Gallagher, Simon Corbell and Andrew Barr fire up their laptops for the Virtual Picture: Gary Schafer Community Cabinet.
REAL TIME PASSENGER INFORMATION SYSTEM
Have your say
The ACT Government is seeking input from the community on the scope and design of a Real Time Passenger Information System for the Canberra bus network. A Real Time Passenger Information System will monitor ACTION buses to allow real time timetable and other information to be available to commuters via digital displays at major bus stations
and selected bus stops, the internet, mobile phones, touch screen displays and on bus displays. The system is being designed this year with implementation scheduled for 2012-2013.
How to have your say For more information on how to get involved or to fill in a commuter survey visit www.transport.act.gov.au or call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81. Surveys are also available at all Canberra Connect Shopfronts and ACT Public libraries. CONSULTATION CLOSES 5PM FRIDAY 26 AUGUST 2011.
ACT Ministers take to Twitter First virtual community cabinet takes place By Peter Reynolds ................................................... CANBERRA’S politicians were thrown out of their comfort zone last week when they were subjected to a barrage of questioning in the first virtual community cabinet. While some of the cabinet are regular tweeters, most notably Simon Corbell and Andrew Barr, and all have participated in community cabinets before, the frenetic pace at which the questions came was a new experience. Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging website that enables its users to send and read messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts limited to 140 characters. More than 700 tweets from more
than 200 users were posted in the hour-long session, more than any other Australian thread that day, making it a hard task for the ministers to keep up. The major issues raised by Canberrans were problems with public transport, planning, and recreational facilities. The cabinet members did their best to keep up with the questioning, with Katy Gallagher, Andrew Barr and Simon Corbell all answering more than 30 queries. Joy Burch arrived late to the session and had less than 10 tweets. Chief Minister Katy Gallagher labelled the virtual community cabinet a huge success, but was looking
at ways to improve the online engagement process. ‘‘In the future we will refine arrangements to best allow engagement from as many of the community as possible,’’ she said. ‘‘I have also decided, based on the success of the Twitter cabinet, to hold a Chief Minister’s blog session which will allow a more comprehensive way of connecting. It can be tricky replying to concerns in 140 characters. ‘‘More traditional ways of engaging with people will continue to exist but these new initiatives will add to, and complement, the existing community engagement mechanisms.’’

UC creates Paralympic history Meredith Clisby By ............................................................. THE University of Canberra is helping to create a living history of the Australian Paralympic movement by crowd sourcing through Wikipedia. The university’s National Institute of Sports Studies will use open-access social media to inspire the creation of articles and the recording of experiences of athletes and others involved in the movement. The project, launched by the Australian Paralympic Committee, already has about 2000 people from all over the world working on it. University of Queensland historian Murray Phillips will assemble the articles into a Wiki book and write a hard copy book of what has been produced. Director of the UC sports studies institute, Professor Keith Lyons, said it was a very exciting project to be involved in. He said originally the Australian Paralympic Committee had wanted to research for the production of a book only and the university had suggested otherwise. “We thought it would be wonderful if it could be dynamic and be a new book each day,” Professor Lyons said. “Our hope was we could use the power of Wikipedia to build up stories of paralympians in ways that haven’t been done before.”
He said the idea was to encourage people to write their own stories about their place as an athlete, or as someone part of the movement. Others are being encouraged to help curate the book by editing the submitted stories. As part of the project the Australian Paralympic Committee is donating a significant number of photos in its collection of more than 35,000 images. This will be done through Wikimedia Commons and it will enable high quality photos to be used to illustrate the history. Professor Lyons believes this is one of the first times that a history book has been created in this way. He said the institute’s staff would use both their sports history knowledge and their skills with open access to help administer the project. The collection of articles began in July and is due to officially finish on December 31. However Professor Lyons hopes the Wiki book at least will live on after this time with people continuing to add details to it. The Australian Paralympic Committee chief executive Jason Hellwig said the project would help to ensure the cultural and sporting significance of the Paralympic movement is recognised and understood.

Rare accomplishment tests spirit
Istok Tanevski has become the first Australian to achieve a second degree black belt in Okinawa Ryu Karate Do. Picture: Elesa Lee
By Peter Reynolds ............................................. TORRENS resident Istok Tanevski has become the first person in Australia to be awarded a second degree black belt in a traditional form of karate. Tanevski has been training in the discipline of Okinawa Ryu Karate Do Shuri Te Seibukan for the past 11 years, starting when he was 12 years old. He is one of the youngest people in the world to attain second degree, or dan, black belt, after completing an arduous grading weekend in Mount Beauty in Victoria last month. ‘‘I don’t really know how to describe it, it’s definitely an honour,’’ Tanevski said. ‘‘In the last 25 years since the Canberra Dojo opened, only a handful of people have stepped up to be graded for brown and black belts, so it is humbling to be the first one to gain second dan.’’ Tanevski said the grading weekend was a gruelling experience, running for about 14 hours over the two days. He was judged by Garry O’Connor, a ninth level dan, who introduced this form of martial arts to Australia. ‘‘When you sit for a grading, you’re never guaranteed of attaining it,’’ he said. ‘‘You need to demonstrate a high level of skill, commitment and spirit. ‘‘The grading is physically
and mentally intense; it’s a continuous physical exam. ‘‘It tests your spirit, to see if you can push through the fatigue and remain sharp and alert.’’ The Okinawa Ryu Karate Do form of martial arts is descended from the guards of the royal family in Okinanwa in the 1600s. Tanevski said he was attracted to it after hearing a training session in the Canberra Dojo, based in Torrens, when he was younger. ‘‘It caught my eye because it looked like a real martial art; you could see the tradition in their etiquette and how they acted. When I first asked to join I was told I was too young, but I kept pestering them and they eventually let me join,’’ he said. ‘‘Other martial arts didn’t seem to have the same attention to detail. ‘‘The training is hard and the standard is set high, and it is really exciting to get in and learn new skills.’’ As well as learning new physical skills, Tanevski said he had learned a lot about his own character through his training. ‘‘It has given me spirituality and wellbeing. It opens up your eyes to a different way of thinking,’’ he said. ‘‘It trains the mind, body and spirit to help develop people’s character.’’

Colourful display of international dance in China FOURTEEN students travelled across the world over the weekend to represent Canberra in the Shanghai International Children’s Cultural and Art Festival. After sending an audition tape to organisers, the Canberra Dance Development Centre students were selected to participate in the festival’s opening ceremony. Centre director Jackie Hallahan said the televised ceremony, which is performed in Shanghai’s grand theatre that seats 12,500 people, would be a highlight for the group. “The actual stage is huge – it’s the size of a football field,” she said. “This is a very exciting opportunity for
them to dance in one of the largest theatres in the world.” The festival was first initiated in 1994 as a vehicle for children from all over the world to demonstrate their heritage and enhance a better understanding among them. Close to 200 groups will participate in the week-long festival, with various performances and activities held all over Shanghai. “It’s a lovely cultural exchange, everyone comes with their culture, everyone wears their national costumes – in our case we’re taking our national flag,” Ms Hallahan said.
“It is an honour for CDDC to represent our own dance centre but also the Canberra community in such a unique display of colourful cultures and enhancement of friendship, peace, acceptance and tolerance.” The Canberra Dance Development Centre already has developed a strong
relationship with Shanghai, having conducted regular cultural exchanges with the China Welfare Institute Children’s Palace since 2005. “We’ve had one or two groups come every year since then,” Ms Hallahan said. “I think it really helps the students to develop international relationships.”
Students from Canberra Dance Development Centre have been busy during the school holidays rehearsing for their upcoming trip to China where they will be part of the Shanghai International Children’s Cultural and Art Festival.

Artistic director recognised By Naomi Fallon ....................................................... RUTH Osborne fell in love with dance when she was just eight years old. She still remembers the first class her mother took her to and how it changed her life. Since then Osborne has devoted her life to the art form, first as a professional dancer and later progressing into teaching and choreographing. Her dedication paid off during this year’s Australian Dance Awards at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, where the now artistic director of QL2 Dance received the 2011 Award for Services to Dance. The national award recognised Osborne for her “superlative teaching” and wide-ranging services to dance for more than four decades, for an outstanding contribution to dance education and to the development of youth dance practice in Australia. “It’s been fantastic … I’ve been nominated and shortlisted before but I never expected to actually win,” she said. QL2’s 2010 junior youth dance project Hard Yards was also recognised with the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Youth or Community Dance. “This was only the third year they’ve actually had that category, so we’re very pleased because it shows the increasing awareness and the value of youth dance work done within the community,” Osborne said. With a professional dance career spanning more than 40 years, Osborne has choreographed for television and film, many large scale events and she
Ruth Osborne, above, won the Australian Dance Award for Services to Dance and her company QL2 won for Outstanding Achievement in Youth or Community Dance for its Hard Yards project.
has served on many arts-related boards. She came to Canberra as manager of Youth Dance Practice at The Australian Choreographic Centre, where she first established the Quantum Leap youth choreographic ensemble. Three years ago the centre shaped
into QL2, but the highly successful Quantum Leap program – now in its 13th year – continues. Despite being in the same job for more than a decade, Osborne is still enthusiastic about her work. “It’s a great pleasure to work with motivated young people,” she said.
She aims to teach students about more than just dance, but instead about confidence, strength and the ability to collaborate and work in a team. “Those are a lot of the same values you need in life,” she said. “It’s a different kind of youth dance practice … we’re developing young
people in the art form of dance not just the physical practice of dance.” Osborne says there is a growing awareness for this sort of youth dance practice across Australia. “We work towards a performance and in that we develop overarching themes that are important to them,” she said. “I’m really keen that they get to understand the topic, form and opinion and develop ideas.”

There’s little policy in politics ittle wonder young voters are cynical about whether or not their right to vote is a right worth exercising. From talking to them it seems their cynicism is based on the performances of some federal, state and territory politicians whose performances seemed part of an introverted world of plotters that would put a dozen Guy Fawkeses to shame. That apart, they thought too
many politicians wanted power not because they wanted to use it in the interests of constituents but, to boost their egos. It would be easy to dismiss such views as nonsense but it seems to me that politicians, and those intending to take up a career in politics, should be listening to what young people are saying. And it wouldn’t do them any harm either to listen to what older voters are saying.
For example, during a recent conversation about politics with a group of young people, one woman said there was clearly a lack of common sense among power brokers in the various Costello/ Nelson/Abbott/Turnbull brouhahas over leadership. She added that the brouhahas had the unintended consequence of handing Labor’s leader Kevin Rudd the 2007 election on a plate, and a well-filled plate at that. The current hung Federal Parliament created by the 2010 election can be attributed less to the increasing popularity of Greens and Independents than to lack of common sense among Labor’s power brokers. After winning the 2007 election Labor continued to be popular in a stream of never-ending opinion polls. Prime minister Rudd’s level of popularity the best enjoyed by any prime minister. Labor congratulated itself and felt sure Rudd and the party’s popularity would keep it in government for a long time. However, if Labor’s power brokers had had the same degree of common
sense as they had complacency, they would have seen the danger signs. Unfortunately when finally they saw the danger signs they seemed to lose what little common sense they had and committed an act of political bastardry that still reverberates today, an act that also gave life to unintended consequences from which Labor still suffers. One of those unintended consequences was that it pushed the Liberals into creating a united front and in doing so improved their standing with voters. But some questions remain: will the unity last or will a new series of brouhahas take place? That said, elections today are contests more about popularity where candidates are judged winners because they have the best smile, hairstyle, looks and clothes than they are about policy. Sadly, no longer are political parties centres from which emerge ideas to improve the social and economic landscape for the benefit of the community but centres where selfish people congregate to compete for power and status. email@example.com

Garden jobs begin to pile up ith garden chores of many kinds piling up over the next few weeks and well on into spring, it’s time to finish pruning the pome fruits (apples, pears and quince); planting new fruiting trees and vines, deciduous shrubs and summer flowering bulbs. Now you can start trimming back the roses. When roses are pruned too early in the winter, any tender new growth is likely to be burnt by late frosts and parts of the shrubs may well need to be pruned again. If you were a little carried away the first time then there might not be too much left to cut back to. As hybrid tea roses produce their blooms on new season’s wood, pruning is directed to removing the older, less productive branches and cutting back those that have grown over tall, in order to nurture new growth closer to eye level. The growth pattern on individual cultivars may vary, but the initial cuts on each should be aimed at first removing any dead or diseased growth. Next, take away thin twiggy branches and anything that crosses over in the centre of the bush that was contributing to the lack of air circulation or even light. Having done that you can evaluate the remaining branches. Aim to leave at least three or four (depending upon the size and age of the plant), to form a basic shape resembling
IN THE GARDEN the spokes of an upturned umbrella. Once you have the framework you could cut back the branches by at least a half to two-thirds, depending up the number of ‘eyes’ or bud growths on the stems. Select one which points to an outward direction and make a cut with sharp clean secateurs just slightly above. Each season roses develop reddish barked canes from above the original graft on the main stem called water shoots as valuable replacement for older wood. Take care not to prune these too hard but merely trim them back lightly. Light green stems that sometimes appear from below the graft are known as suckers – unwanted growth from the original root stock. These will need to be removed lest they dominate the whole plant and you eventually lose the more desirable grafted cultivar. Floribunda or cluster roses do not require such hard pruning, merely cutting back to about a quarter of the previous
year’s growth. Carpet roses can be trimmed with a pair of sharp hedge shears while miniature roses may need only a very light prune – just enough to remove any dead or excessively twiggy stems. Weeping Ramblers that bloom but once a year in early summer should not be pruned in winter but only after the flowering display is over. Climbing roses are normally left unpruned for the first couple of years after planting, allowing their lengthy caneswhich should have been tied into a somewhat arching horizontal plane, to mature. Although climbers, like any vine, have a natural tendency to grow upwards, the long canes need to be trained so that the lateral growth, which shoots from the topside of the tied horizontal framework can be cut back to the two or three buds that will produce the flowers. Roses are susceptible to a number of fungal problems, namely black spot, which can overwinter on stems and foliage as well as on the surrounding soil. Any prunings and fallen foliage should be removed and binned rather than added to the compost heap thus spreading the problem. Use an appropriate spray after pruning. Lime sulphur (use only when the plant is completely dormant – it will burn any foliage); or copper oxychloride, will get new season’s growth off to a clean start.
JOBS TO DO
It’s time to start trimming back the roses. ■ YOU don’t need a large garden pond if you like the idea of growing a water lily – any water tight tub or container can be home to one of these beautiful plants provided there is sufficient depth of water, usually a minimum of 45cm. These ancient but classic plants have to be one of the easiest and most rewarding forms of gardening in quiet
water (they dislike any movement from waterfalls or the spray from fountains) for there is little to do except feed them, remove spent foliage and periodically re-pot. Newly purchased water lilies need to be freed from any extraneous fibrous roots before setting into a pot of heavy clay loam, one third of which should be pulverised cow manure.

■ Prepare a planting plan for the spring vegetable plot. The practice of crop rotation is a sound one. Not only will it help to control soil-borne diseases that affect certain plants but as different crops have differing nutritional requirements, it will also ensure that added fertilisers and manures are used to advantage. ■ Check the local nursery and garden centre shelves for summer flowering bulbs and new season’s packets of seeds for the flower garden and vegetable plot. Stock up on pots, seeding raising mix, potting mix and pulverised cow manure for a new growing season that is literally just round the corner. ■ To clear lawns of moss, improve the drainage by aerating the ground with a fork or corer and, where possible, increase the amount of light by removing any overhanging tree branches or low growing shrubs. Eliminate patches of moss from paths with a solution of diluted bleach and the aid of a stiff broom. ■ Chop down and turn autumn sown green manure crops into the ground. Spread any available compost onto empty plots then start a new compost heap from a mixture of winter weeds, finely chopped prunings and some of your bagged autumn leaves. .....................................................

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down THUMBS UP to the kind lady who stopped along Ginninderra Drive on Saturday, July 16, to help me while I was ringing for an ambulance and remained with me until the ambulance arrived. Your help was much appreciated. Thank you.
NUCLEAR POWER IS VIABLE
THUMBS UP to the gentleman who regularly cleans up around Gungahlin. He can often be seen picking up rubbish that others think they are entitled to throw in the streets. It is a pity that more people do not share his enthusiasm and pride in keeping the neighbourhood clean.
TOM Baker (Letters, July 26) accuses Don Allan of being biased for nuclear and against renewables. However, I’d suggest it is the renewable energy advocates who are biased and unwilling to acknowledge the realities. Here are some points to consider. Nuclear is proven economically viable, about the cleanest and safest of all electricity generation technologies and near emissions-free. Nuclear has demonstrated it can provide most of an advanced nation’s (France’s) electricity generation, and has been doing so for 30 years. On the other hand, non-hydro renewables are very costly, unreliable, intermittent and have not been able to provide much electricity anywhere. Wind power costs about three times more than conventional generation but avoids little CO2 emissions. As the amount of wind generation increases, the amount of CO2 avoided per kWh decreases. The cost per tonne CO2 increases and would be very high if wind generation is increased to the amount needed to achieve the 2020
THUMBS DOWN to the p-plater who deliberately drove his dark blue hatchback into a cul-de-sac in Wanniassa to target a remote-controlled car being played with by children. After driving at speed towards the children to scatter them, he then drove the front and rear wheels over the toy car, destroying it. Two of the frightened children were visiting from the USA, prompting a comment from their parents that they had come all the way from Washington to Canberra, where, within a week of arriving, their children were almost run down in a quiet street.
THUMBS DOWN to KFC Gungahlin for not taking eftpos at the drive-through and not saying so until you are stuck in the queue anyway, and for leaving the chips out of my meal deal. For a chain that presents itself as so trendy, their service is very archaic.
THUMBS UP to the kind strangers who helped push my car (which had broken down) from a parking ramp on Cooyong Street, Civic, into a parking bay, out of the busy traffic. Thank you also to the kind man from the NRMA who came to my assistance quickly, started my car and followed me home to assist in case a further breakdown was to occur. Thank you kindly.
THUMBS UP to the gentleman who returned my husband’s wallet intact from the Macquarie Plaza. We were elated, it had quite a deal of money and all our cards in it.

emissions targets. Solar is an enormous waste of tax payers funds. Windora solar PV power station in Queensland – supposedly the current state of the art – produces electricity at about 145c/kWh (and only when the sun shines). It costs about $6000 per tonne CO2 avoided. The recently announced Chinchilla solar thermal power station will produce electricity for 33 cents a kWh; about 10 times the cost of electricity from conventional plants. It will cost about $420 per tonne CO2 avoided – nearly 20 times the proposed starting price for the carbon tax. Yet the Treasury modelling, undertaken to support the Government’s proposed carbon tax and emissions trading scheme, assumes that 75 per cent of our electricity can be provided by unproven electricity generation technologies by 2050. If we want to achieve 50 per cent or greater cuts to CO2 emissions by 2050, nuclear will have to comprise between 50 per cent and 75 per cent of our electricity generation. Peter Lang Griffith

Women’s Centre for Health Matters executive director Marcia Williams said a report issued by the organisation last year showed that Canberra women preferred internet options when seeking information about wellbeing. A survey of 674 women in the ACT about their actual and preferred use of information sources resulted in the report It goes with the Territory! ACT Women’s Views about Health and Wellbeing Information. Respondents were asked to identify what type of information they had sought from which information source in the 12 months prior to completing the survey. In the 12 months prior to completing the survey, the source most commonly used for general wellbeing information was the internet – used by 56 per cent. “In this day and age when people are really busy ... one of their preferences is to use online solutions first,” Ms Williams said. “They find it a lot easier. It allows people alternative options to find out things and make decisions.” Ms Williams said because of the findings she believed an online service, such as the new website, could be a good resource for women in need. “There’s a preference for online. It’s usually a safer way of them finding out more,” she said. “We know those sorts of things do work for women ... as long as it’s easily accessible.”

By Joni Scanlon ....................................................... A CONFIDENTIAL online counselling service is now available for people at risk of sexual assault or domestic abuse. The Commonwealth Government service www.1800RESPECT.org.au has been launched to enhance the 1800RESPECT national telephone counselling service, which has been running since October 2010. The 24-hour online service will connect users with tertiary qualified professional counsellors and social workers. Users can also access information about local counselling services and information. The website is part of the Government’s National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022, and Minister for the Status of Women, Kate Ellis, said the service continues the Government’s pledge to focus on long-term solutions to end domestic abuse. “The online service offers an important alternative means of seeking help. It has been designed to respond in a flexible way to the often complex needs of victims of violence and their families,” Ms Ellis said. “The 1800RESPECT national telephone counselling service has averaged around 185 contacts a week since its launch in October last year. This is a sobering reminder of the need in our community for support services for victims of violence in the home. The more options we offer for victims of domestic violence, the more likely it is that people receive the help they need.”

Caesar: Gareth Reeves as Casca and Kate Mulvany as Cassius.
Dark heart of politics By Naomi Fallon
hen digging around amongst all of the backstabbing and powergrabbing in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Kate Mulvany discovered something she never expected to find – the heart of a politician. “Deep imbedded in the heart of every politician is a human being and that really intrigued me,” she said. “It’s something I found so fascinating and so heartbreaking.” But when she was first asked to co-adapt the story with Bell Shakespeare’s new associate artistic director Peter Evans, Mulvany admits she wasn’t really a fan of the story. “I always thought of it as a bloke’s play where they all kill each other,” she said. But, keen to do the classic justice,
the Australian actress and writer wiped the slate clean and began digging deep down below the surface where she found the characters were far more human than she ever expected.
towards our politicians.” The parallels between Julius Caesar and the real life story of Julia Gillard snatching the top spot from former prime minister Kevin Rudd are undeniable.
In an alternate take on a classic, Mulvany and Evans have transported the momentous piece of Roman history into the corridors of backroom politics, where the audience watches on as yet another leader is forced from office.
Despite that, Mulvany said Bell’s version of the story didn’t play on that aspect.
While Caesar, played by Alex Menglet, goes in search of ways to expand his power, conniving Cassius (Mulvany) is bent on bringing the leader down.
“I think we’re all a bit over it,” she said. “You can’t deny the similarities but there won’t be any red wigs or bad accents on our stage.” Given its political nature, Mulvany hopes the show will be a success in the nation’s capital.
But Mulvany maintains that Cassius isn’t the conniving villain she’s often perceived to be.
“You certainly have had your fair share of senate slaughters in the past few years,” she said.
“She has a reason. She’s got no respect for Caesar, she’s worried about her country,” she said.
“I’m excited to see if anyone turns up ... and what the response will be.”
“There’s absolutely no difference from the way most of us feel
While the nation is used to hearing about political decisions made
behind closed doors, Mulvany says Julius Caesar brings it all out into the open. “The great thing that Julius Caesar does, is it lifts the walls up and we get to see inside.”

Conflict of gods and men STEFAN KUSSY THE BIG SCREEN
lthough Of Gods and Men is set in an impoverished village, Tibhirine, in Algeria during the civil war between the ruling government and Islamist forces in that country in the 1990s, the film touches on the universal concerns of faith, trust, hope, belief and humanity.
If a film can navigate across an immense spectrum of meaning and contemplation, Of Gods and Men does a reasonable job of it. It encapsulates the universal to the microcosmic. A group of Trappist monks, led by Brother Christian (Lambert Wilson), a name that resonates significantly considering the belief systems at the centre of the civil war, follow a routine of prayer, growing food and dispensing medical care as they negotiate their lives. They are cocooned by their faith and belief in the worth of their assistance to the sick and poor residents of the village. They are frail men committed to their god but in the secular world they have very little food and no immediate family apart from their brotherhood. They rejoice in the taste of wine, grow what they can and are devoted to providing what help they can to the villagers. Being Christian monks in a Muslim country has not been a huge issue until the monks are confronted by the brutality of the Islamist rebels, who slaughter Serbian workers at the monastery. This act immediately confronts the monks with the option of whether to stay and continue their work or

externally is of any true consequence. He is at peace.
As men of god and caring human beings they would like to help any in need with the meagre supplies they have but they are pressured from both sides.
The Islamist rebels’ values are different to the Monks, yet they are just as passionate about their beliefs, both political and faith based.
Christian refuses to accept the protection of the military, which causes consternation among the monks. They are divided as to whether they should stay or go. They are forced to delve into their souls to uncover their essential beliefs and why they do what they do. It cuts to the heart of who they are.
There is no right and wrong in this situation. It depends behind which set of values you stand as to whether you are right and the others are misguided. Despite this, the monks and the rebels, led by Ali Fayattia (Farid Larbi), have reached equilibrium in their acceptance of each other.
Their sense of faith is also challenged as they meditate. Only one monk, Brother Luc (Michael Lonsdale), the medic, realises he is a free man, spiritually and physically, and nothing imposed upon him
The scales, however, are made of sharpened steel and could have disastrous effects once the equilibrium is disturbed. Eventually all the monks reach the same decision. They stay. This decision has major consequences
because neither the government, military nor rebels supports the monks wholeheartedly. It is more a matter of tolerance. However, at some stage, we realise that all parties in the conflict will act and react to the plight of the monks. The conflict impacts on the solidity of the monks’ isolated lives in their small community. Their decision imparts a sense of power and control to the monks while at the same moment instilling a feeling of helplessness. Externally, the monks’ true support comes from the residents of the community in which they live and work while internally their belief in their faith carries them, although they are practical and realise there is a strong chance they will end up with their throats slit. The monks have developed a
sense of community with the villagers through ministering to the villagers’ ill health. Through their isolation from family and fellow French countrymen, the monks are challenged to decide individually and as a collective, the worth of what they are doing.
Of Gods and Men is as much a meditation upon universal values as an account of the real life fate of seven monks in conflict torn Algeria in the 1990s. Of Gods and Men shows that peace and freedom can be allusive and challenged by the flight of a bullet or the blade of a knife slicing your artery. Of Gods and Men (French dialogue with English subtitles), rated MA 15+, screens at Greater Union Manuka.

JACK SIBTHORPE IN REVIEW Snowtown – the soundtrack Artist: Jed Kurzel Label: Ivy League Records
nowtown is the highly-acclaimed Australian film based on the murders of John Bunting, infamous for his serial killing spree during the 1990s. It is directed by Justin Kurzel (The Mess Hall) and the soundtrack is composed by his brother Jed Kurzel (The Mess Hall). The Kurzel brothers really hit the spot with Snowtown; the psychological thriller film grasped the attention of audiences around Australia and the world, winning the Audience Award at the Bigpond Adelaide Film Festival 2011 (the same state where the murders once occurred). The soundtrack opens with The Dream; a pulsating heartbeat and a disturbing monologue accompanies anti-climactic sounds and abnormal
FOR WEEK BEGINNING AUGUST 2, 2011 © Alison Moroney, 2011
The following track titled The Dance is down tempo and sad; the song builds on a simple guitar progression and atmospheric synthesizers, once again finishing with an anti-climactic ending. It gets sadder as the album plays through. The Webb sounds like music from a morgue, and Tape 1 is humbly built around one note– a simple buzzing sound hums throughout the song, while high pitched feedback and ambient like noises infiltrate the audio. The songs on this soundtrack are quite short; composed to emphasize the emotions of specific scenes and dramatic events throughout the film. The pulsating heartbeat re-appears in The Trap; refreshing my memory of the suspenseful build-up encountered at the start of the album. Ambient noise and atmospheric space music continue to defy gravity in tracks seven through to 12, until the last two songs are unveiled with the familiar beating pulse that I heard earlier. The second last track, The Vault, incorporates alien like sounds; in some sections it is too difficult to distinguish the identity of the instruments being used. The closing composition titled The

ARIES There tends to be an “easy come, easy go” attitude with money during Tuesday and Wednesday, unnecessarily depleting financial resources when you can least afford it.
TAURUS End is my personal favourite; beginning with the similar pulse used in previous tracks, the composition then evolves into an eerie mix of banjos and dark synthesizers. Jed Kurzel’s composition for the soundtrack of Snowtown is impressive (to say the least).
Your mood is positive during August 2, 3 promoting a belief that you can do anything. You need to guard against biting off more than you can chew, especially financially.
GEMINI It will be easy to make promises you can’t keep during August 2, 3, perhaps worsening a situation for yourself. Use your vision and optimism to make plans, but delay definite commitments.
From start to end, the Snowtown soundtrack is an instrumental album of ambient noise; scary, dark, and depressing.
There are positive times and memories to be shared with friends during Tuesday and Wednesday. However, when visualising your goals make allowances for variables.
The soundtrack sets the perfect mood for the sickening story of the Snowtown murders.
August 2, 3 brings illusionary influences into play where your career and status are concerned, or around a parent. You need to be careful not to overestimate your own abilities and underestimate anothers.
Jed Kurzel has demonstrated his amazing talents as a composer in this album; the style of music is in a completely different dimension to that of his famous rock outfit The Mess Hall. Good stuff; it’s just a little bit rough.
VIRGO You may feel inspired by an idea or knowledge which comes your way during August 2, 3. However, something does not quite “sit right” about this. Think things through carefully.
LIBRA A financial opportunity that may appear to be gilt with gold is probably too good to be true during August 2, 3. Someone you are trusting may not know better themselves.
SCORPIO You are likely to have very good feelings about another party during August 2, 3 but should make sure of their credentials before becoming closely involved.
SAGITTARIUS Your days will not be clear cut at work during Tuesday and Wednesday, making it probable that efficiency is affected. Something more concrete is needed for routines to be effective.
CAPRICORN There are some enjoyable moments to be shared with loved ones during August 2, 3. Just do not expect too much of them, and keep money and love separated. This is not a good time for speculation.
AQUARIUS You may be expecting too much from a current situation within the home during Tuesday and Wednesday. Things may be rosy but not all that you expect of them.
PISCES August 2, 3 requires good organisation to get the best out of the current trend. You need to be efficient with your tasks in order to be free to do those things you enjoy so much. 11-08679/1

Famous fairies fly into Canberra Superstars attend store opening By Newshound .................................................... NEWSHOUND put on his best pressed suit on Saturday when he went to a store opening in Mitchell to visit The Fairies. These girls are pretty famous and Newshound knew they would appreciate it if the super sleuth would dress up for the occasion. Plenty of children came along as well to meet their favourite children’s entertainers. The Fairies who visited Canberra were called Harmony and Rhapsody. Newshound thought these were lovely names. In fact he did consider what sort of name he would have if he had been born a fairy. ‘Newshound’ certainly wouldn’t cut it. There was a bit of a nervous
moment early on in the proceedings when Newshound thought they could be tooth fairies. He is getting to the stage where false teeth might be in order and he didn’t need any tooth fairies helping themselves to his remaining stock. Newshound was pretty keen to find out how The Fairies travel around – he hasn’t actually seen them fly but apparently they can. He thought they were smaller too, but he has been wrong before. Harmony and Rhapsody said they couldn’t let The Chronicle in on that secret as then they would be flying people everywhere. The event on Saturday also featured face painting and a sausage sizzle and visitors got to tour the new store and see the excellent dance and Fairlyland facilities available.

Bone Density Testing coming to Canberra Pharmacies A Bone Health Wellness Program Beneficial for All Adults
CANBERRA pharmacies, together with the Australian Bone Density Testing Centre, are urging people of all ages to give more attention to the health of their bones, and Healthy Bones Week is a perfect time to start. To personalise the importance of bone health, there will be bone density testing at a number of pharmacies on select days in August and September. Osteoporosis means bones become thin, fragile and break easily and currently in Australia there is an osteoporotic fracture every five to six minutes. Bones reach peak strength around the age of 25. From approximately 35, both men and women can slowly start to lose bone strength at about 1 per cent a year. The outstanding fact is that
Cost just $40 by appointment only contact participating pharmacies
Australian Bone Density Testing Centre Phone 03 98220044 www.bonedensitytesting.com.au
osteoporosis is largely preventable and treatable and does not have to be a consequence of getting older. Because you can’t see it or feel it many people don’t know that bone loss has occurred until they break a bone. It’s therefore a good idea to check bone density every two years. Conducted by ultrasound, the tests assess fracture risk, cost $40, are 100 per cent safe and include a written result and information booklet. In the latest information regarding screening for osteoporosis, the United States Preventative Services Task Force states that quantitative ultrasound effectively predicts fracture risk in postmenopausal women and men. Canberra pharmacies have been hosting bone density testing now for more than a decade.
Australian Bone Density Testing Centre director Evelyn Holsman is proud of the program. “Participants receive more than a bone density test; consultations provide information to quantify, personalise and enable people to make informed bone health choices to prevent or delay progression toward age-related osteoporosis.” All people tested, regardless of age and their level of risk, receive information about calcium, vitamin D, exercise and more. You are never too young or too old to keep bones healthy with a view to preventing or treating age-related progression toward osteoporosis. For more information, visit bonedensitytesting.com.au
ARE YOU IN PAIN? Learn how many pain sufferers are now enjoying life, doing the things they want to do.
You can’t feel your bones getting thinner so you may not know this has happened until you break a bone! Assess your risk early with a safe, reliable inexpensive ultrasound bone density test. Every consultation includes information about the role of calcium vitamin D and exercise.

Chest pain is a common and worrying symptom that often leads people to the hospital emergency room. The doctor faced with such a patient needs to make a careful assessment and diagnosis to see if the symptom is heartrelated or otherwise. Many patients find that after careful medical assessment they are cleared of any heart problem, but that the chest pain persists, leaving them somewhat relieved but still suffering and confused. A very common cause of chest pain is what may be called ‘mechanical chest pain’. This can be caused by irritation to the nerves supplying the skin, muscles or bones of the chest as they leave the spine. Doctors of chiropractic are experts in the diagnosis and management of spine-related disorders, including many cases of chest pain, and many sufferers report a satisfying resolution of their problem through safe, natural chiropractic care.

THE CHRONICLE, Tuesday, August 2 2011 - 54
Canberra knocked by Tigers’ roar COOMA Tigers twice fought back from being a goal behind to inflict a second league defeat in succession on the previously invincible Canberra FC with a 3-2 victory at Nijong Oval in Round 14 of the Capital Football Premier League. The home team was forced to showcase its powers of recovery after falling behind to a stunning 17thminute opener to Josip Jadric. The winger struck a powerful shot that flew into the Cooma net leaving the home goalkeeper helpless – that proved to be the only goal of the first half. Any thoughts that the visitors might be back to winning ways after their home loss to Canberra Olympic seven days prior were brought crashing back to earth when Iain Elliott fired a rasping drive into the net to level the match at 1-1 13 minutes into the second half. The champions regained the initiative barely six minutes later though, when Ian Graham was on hand to notch his sixth league goal of the season and seemingly restored normality. However, the Tigers roared again and Serdan Bircan bravely hurtled into a 50-50 with Ben Klug in the Canberra FC goal, getting to the ball first to make the score 2-2 in the 72nd minute. Two minutes later the home team was in front. Elliott swung over a cross and Alex Castro, once of Canberra FC, connected to power a diving header into the net and secure a home win. The defeat allowed Canberra FC’s nearest title rival Canberra Olympic to move five points clear at the top of the table after it proved too strong for Monaro Panthers in a one-sided contest at O’Connor Enclosed, winning 4-0. After an unfortunate own goal

Belconnen United got back to winning ways on Sunday afternoon as it disposed of Tuggeranong United 4-0 at McKellar Park. Dustin Wells proved once again to be the king of the deadball, netting a hat-trick of set-piece efforts including a brace of penalties in the first half. Danny Macor had the Blue Devils in front in the 21st minute with his seventh goal of the season before Tuggeranong goalkeeper Alex Connell was adjudged to have fouled a Belconnen attacker in the penalty area. Wells made no mistake from the spotkick and repeated the feat in the 34th minute after a penalty was again awarded, this time for handball. In the second half, Tuggeranong was given a penalty of its own but skipper Tim Ireson saw his shot saved by Rowan Sheppard. Wells added the coup de grace for the home team two minutes from time with a belting free-kick from distance to register a treble and his 24th goal of the season. At Hawker Football Centre on Saturday evening Canberra City and Woden Valley played out a goalless draw with chances few and far between. Alex Oloriegbe missed the best opportunities for the visiting side, firstly firing wide when one-on-one early on and secondly following a Ben Pagett cross. Nikola Taneski tested the reflexes of Woden shot-stopper Jack Pettit, who also did well to save a wellstruck free-kick from Misko Naumoski. City looked for all the world as if it had won the match when a shot was goal bound with Pettit beaten, however, Hector Alamos saved the day with a magnificent stooping clearance off the goal line.

The Gunners’ came out ready to play and it was a close quarter with the lead changing numerous times. At the end of the first quarter, Canberra was ahead by one point. The Gunners game dropped in the second quarter and the 10 turnovers did not help their cause. The lead was quickly snatched away, as Brisbane jumped away and lead by six at half-time. The Gunners came out of the change room ready to win. Early in the third quarter Brisbane pushed its lead out to nine points but the Gunners came back with a bang, winning the third quarter 24 points to 19 and reduced Brisbane’s lead to just one point. In the fourth quarter the Gunners slipped early, allowing Brisbane to stretch their lead from one point to 11. The team clawed back and reduced the margin to six points with just a few minutes left on the clock. In the last few minutes missed free throws and three-point attempts were the difference between a six point loss and a win. The Gunners had a higher field goal shooting percentage than Brisbane, but 21 turnovers to Brisbane’s 10 did not help their cause. The Gunners lost the match 85-79. “The Gunners started brilliantly in the first quarter and the team work and finishing off was of the highest standard. But in the second we let them off the hook with undisciplined play and 10 turnovers,” coach Frank Arsego said. “The second half was much the same, when we were good we were good, and when we were bad it was bad. Still, with two minutes to go we were in it but our missed free throws did not help and we could not close the gap. “Next week will be a replay of the triple overtime thriller against Knox in Melbourne, we will have to play the game of our lives to go the distance with that one.”
ACT Cricket chief executive officer Mark Vergano is excited about this year’s Festival of Cricket.

Festival welcomes India By Peter Reynolds ............................................. DECEMBER will be a huge month for cricket in the ACT, with two interstate matches and an international fixture featuring the world champion Indian side. The inaugural Festival of Cricket will feature a rematch of last season’s Sheffield Shield final between NSW and Tasmania from December 6-9. There will also be a one-day match between the two sides on Sunday, December 4. The highlight of the festival will be a new addition to the ACT cricket calendar, the Cricket Australia Chairman’s XI against the touring Indians from December 18 to 21. This match will be the lone lead-in match for India before the Boxing Day Test against Australia. ‘‘As the only lead-in for the Indians, it will be a deadly
Interstate, international matches planned serious match,’’ ACT Cricket chief executive officer Mark Vergano said. ‘‘India has some of the real legends of the game such as Dravid, Tendulkar and Laxman, all probably playing for the last time in Australia. It should be a fantastic game. ‘‘It is also great to have the shield final rematch here at Manuka, they are both exciting teams.’’ To tie in with the matches, Vergano said there would be a series of cricket-related promotions around Manuka. ‘‘We are having a number of clinics and are inviting regional teams to come and train in the Manuka Oval nets under our coaching staff,’’ he said. ‘‘We are also having discus-
sions to have a street cricket match and fan zone with the NSW and Tasmanian sides in Franklin Street, Manuka. ‘‘It will give people the chance to get up close and meet the players and participate in a game of street cricket.’’ V erga no s aid proving Manuka could host a series of important matches would help its cause for inclusion in an expanded Big Bash League in the future. ‘‘We are still very interested in entering the Big Bash competition and the Festival of Cricket will help build momentum,’’ he said. ‘‘There’s still work to be done on Manuka Oval, but there is great interest here, we’re a great breeding ground for tal-
ented cricketers and we’ve got the opportunity to show we can host quality matches.’’ Tourism and Sport Minister Andrew Barr said the matches would have a positive economic benefit for the capital. ‘‘The matches are great reasons for visitors to visit Canberra, and Australian Capital Tourism is ready to make the most of promoting the events and our city. The combination of matches is expected to draw national and international media coverage for Canberra,’’ he said. Meanwhile, former ACT Comet Nathan Lyon has capped a meteoric rise in the sport by being named in the Australian Test squad to tour Sri Lanka later this month.
August fishing makes a feast for some Puzzle BEN CADDAYE
GONE FISHIN’ FISHING in August can be a feast or famine, depending on your target species. If you’re chasing trout, it looks like being an action-packed month, with superb catches reported from the mountain lakes. Eucumbene has been a standout, with bait-fishing and trolling the best techniques. Shore-based anglers soaking Powerbait, worms and grubs have been taking lots of rainbows and
some big browns to three kilos around Buckenderra. Trolling has also been excellent around Buckenderra and Seven Gates, with a variety of lures producing fish. Try small, shallowdiving minnows, blades and the ever-reliable Tassie Devils. Jindabyne anglers wanting a big brown trout should try soaking a bardi grub around Waste Point, Hatchery Bay or right in front of the town itself. South coast fishing traditionally hits its lowest ebb during August as clear, cold water sends many species packing. In most of the estuaries, there has been a noticeable shutdown, but there are still good fish on offer. John Murray from Mawson emailed me a report of a hot fishing session he experienced recently at Burrill Lake, near Ulladulla. Fishing a deep channel at the mouth of the lake, Murray experi-
enced a weekend of sensational fishing for big Australian salmon, which were holed up near the entrance. Using dark-coloured soft plastics, it was a fish-a-cast at times as salmon nudging the 50cm mark climbed over Murray’s lures. He even got his four-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son in on the action – and they both had a ball. A lot of lakes and rivers are harbouring schools of salmon right now so it would be worth trying this approach at other locations. Offshore fishing has been reasonable for snapper and flathead in about 30 metres of water. Spawning cuttlefish have started appearing and this almost always draws snapper close to shore where they can be caught on soft plastics. ■ email@example.com

Lyon was a shock inclusion in the squad after playing just four first-class matches for South Australia. He made his debut for the Redbacks seven months ago. Vergano said Lyon’s selection was a welcome surprise. ‘‘Nathan’s is a great story, that you don’t have to be identified at 13 or 14 and go through the usual pathway,’’ he said. ‘‘He came here from Young, worked hard on both his cricket and his trade (curating), and his selection is just reward for an outstanding young man. ‘‘We are looking forward to having an ACT offspinner bowling with an ACT wicketkeeper (Brad Haddin) behind the stumps.’’

IN BRIEF .......................................... CHARITY BOOK FAIR ON AGAIN BOOKWORMS are being encouraged to visit the August Charity Bookfair on this weekend in Queanbeyan. It will be held at the Community Centre on Crawford Street opposite Queanbeyan Council Chambers on Friday from 5pm to 8pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Proceeds of sales will be donated to the Queanbeyan Meals on Wheels program.
SUSTAINABILITY POLICY ADOPTED QUEANBEYAN City Council has adopted its first sustainability policy for council operations at its meeting on Wednesday, July 27. In early 2011 council created an internal sustainability working group (Smarter Action Squad) to provide input into the development of this policy. The policy specifically looks at how council will conduct its own operations in terms of environmentally sustainable operations. Council acknowledges it has a responsibility and key role to play in promoting and implementing sustainable development (operations and practices). Council will lead the region by example in sustainable practices including water and energy use, waste and fleet management, pollution control, environmental compliance and parks management.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED THE Heart Foundation is looking for big-hearted volunteers from Queanbeyan to take part in the annual doorknock appeal this September. “As a charity, we rely on volunteers and public donations to carry out our lifesaving work,” Heart Foundation CEO NSW Tony Thirlwell said. More than 118,000 volunteers are currently being recruited with the aim to raise $5 million nationally, to help the fight against heart disease, the number one killer of Australian men and women. “This year our aim is to raise $5 million to fund critical research and community projects to improve awareness, prevention and treatment of heart disease, which kills one Australian every 23 minutes.” If you would like to volunteer in your area, contact the Heart Foundation Doorknock Hotline on 1800 552 255 or register online at www.heartfoundation.org.au/ doorknock
ACT chief minister Katy Gallagher and Queanbeyan mayor Tim Overall had their first official meeting last Thursday.

Cross-border meeting Mayor attends first formal meeting with the new Chief Minister Meredith Clisby By ..................................................... QUEANBEYAN mayor Tim Overall has described his first meeting with new ACT Chief Minister as a positive and constructive experience. Cr Overall met Chief Minister Katy Gallagher last Thursday in what was the first time the two leaders have formally met since outgoing leader Jon Stanhope stood down earlier this year. He said items high on the agenda included the need for Canberra Avenue bus lanes to continue into Queanbeyan and the city’s upgrade of sewerage treatment works. Also discussed was the proposed ring road in Queanbeyan and the fact

the city’s 175th birthday will coincide with Canberra’s centenary. Cr Overall said this had been the first time in about 12 months he had met an ACT chief minister. This he put down to previously made commitments of the then chief minister Jon Stanhope and the aftermath of his resignation. He said high on the council’s wish list had been the need for priority bus lanes to help alleviate the peak-hour traffic congestion. The 2010-11 ACT Budget included $8.2 million for bus lanes to be established from Fyshwick to Hume Circle. The ACT Government has now

then. Ms Gallagher said working cooperatively on projects affecting both communities remained a high priority for the Government. The cross border meetings were established in 2008 as a way of discussing issues affecting both regions. Cr Overall said the initiative would continue to be beneficial under the new chief minister. “It’s an opportunity to put the items on the table, and certainly Katy Gallagher as a chief minister is a very pragmatic person,’’ he said. ‘‘We had open and frank discussion.”

agreed to look at extending this to the NSW city. “It’s a new development in the sense that there’s been an in-principle agreement that there’s a need to add that in the future,” Cr Overall said. He said the two leaders had also discussed the need for Queanbeyan to upgrade its sewerage treatment works after damage caused effluent to run into Lake Burley Griffin after last year’s floods. Cr Overall said the next meeting would be held in November to discuss the options for upgrades as well as transport issues. He said a decision on South Tralee would definitely have been made by

“What is clear and what is known is the Canberra Airport is not subject to ACT planning legislation and the airport has shown in the past little regard for NSW planning legislation,” Cr Overall said. He said it could also be possible that the airport’s continued retail/commercial expansion will affect Canberra as well. However, the president of the Queanbeyan Business Council, Jamie Cregan, said the expansion will only have a short-term effect on the local retailers. “I believe it will have an initial effect that will be reduced over time,” he said. “I don’t think that there’s any need to panic.” Mr Cregan said he thought Queanbeyan shoppers would think before they spent their money and would choose local over travelling across the border.
He said the Buy in Queanbeyan campaign, to be launched in October, would point out the benefits of shopping in the city. “Really it’s just looking to promote business as a whole in Queanbeyan rather than a focus on certain industries,” Mr Cregan said. A Canberra Airport spokeswoman said any development had complied with the Airports Act and various agencies had been briefed on their proposals. “We don’t believe that there will be an impact on Queanbeyan, and indeed we understand that there are current proposals for major retailers to move into the Queanbeyan region,” she said. “Notwithstanding that this latest complaint from Queanbeyan City Council appears to have been made in the context of the South Tralee dispute, we are more than happy to discuss any airport development with Queanbeyan City Council and answer any queries they may have.”

Slow down in Woden Town Centre By Peter Reynolds ....................................................... IN a bid to make the Woden Town Centre more pedestrian and cycle friendly, a new 40km/h speed limit has been introduced. The new speed limit will be in place for the next six months as part of a trial that could be spread to other town and group centres in Canberra. The trial will run from August 2011 to January 2012 and operate on a full time basis. The section of Woden to be affected is bounded by Hindmarsh Drive, Callam Street, Melrose Drive and
Trial 40km/h speed limit in place for six months Matilda Street. “The safety of pedestrians and all road users is important and this six month trial will provide the Government with a snapshot of how the 40km/h speed limit can better protect Canberrans in town centres,” Territory and Municipal Services minister Simon Corbell said. “Research indicated that the introduction of a 40km/h speed zone can significantly reduce the risk of death for vulnerable road users. “For example, a 10km/h decrease in
speed can reduce the risk of death for pedestrians and cyclists by over 50 per cent.” Traffic calming measures such as speed humps will be installed as part of the trial and signage will be erected to alert people to changed traffic conditions. The trial of 40km/h speed zones was part of the Parliamentary Agreement between the Labor and Greens parties. Greens TAMS spokeswoman Caro-
line Le Couteur said she was hopeful the new speed limits would be adopted full-time once the trial was completed. “I think most people won’t even notice the difference as most people don’t go that fast in the town centres,” she said. “Hopefully this will stop the small number of people who do speed around the town centre and make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists, and encourage this type of travel to the town centre.”
Ms Le Couteur said she would like to see the trial expanded into all town and group centres, as well as aged care centres, preschools and child care centres. Woden Valley Community Council chair Dr Jenny Stewart said the council wasn’t opposed to the trial but thought there was more pressing issues for the area. “We’re not against the 40km/h trial, it’s just not on our list of priorities at the moment,” she said. “We’d much rather see some proper infrastructure planning for the town centre than a slower speed zone trial.”
Improved bus services for successful park and ride From Page 1 Local business owner Nick Tsoulias has been the major driving force behind the establishment of a park and ride in Calwell and said he was elated with the Government’s decision. “We are lucky to have a park and ride here, the Government has budget constraints on the amount of infrastructure it can invest in,” he said. “The community really embraced the park and ride concept and developed its own plan for the facility here and has assisted the Government in the past nine months we’ve been pushing for this.
“The schools, businesses and community associations all got behind the project and all played a part in getting the park and ride here. “This type of co-operation is important if you want to achieve something.” Mr Tsoulias said he was keen to see the park and ride located on a vacant block next to the Ambulance Station on Johnson Drive. He said if the facility was to be successful, improved bus services had to be implemented, and was hopeful a Redex route taking in Conder and Calwell and then the Monaro Highway could be developed.
Luc Lombardo is hopeful the pitch and putt course in Phillip can be retained. Local business owner Nick Tsoulias is pleased Calwell is getting a park Picture: Elesa Lee and ride facility.
Youth forced to give bike to thief WITNESSES are being sought by police after a youth was robbed of his bicycle while cycling in Isabella Plains on Saturday afternoon (July 30). At around 3.30pm the 15-year-old victim was riding his bicycle along Ellerston Avenue in Isabella Plains when he was approached by a teenager near the Groveland Crescent intersection. The offender grabbed the handle bars of the victim’s bicycle pulling them away from the victim. The offender told the victim to get off the bicycle to which the victim complied. The offender then rode off on the victim’s bicycle along Ellerston Avenue, towards Monash. The victim’s bicycle is described as
having white handle bars, purple rims and white forks. The offender is described as a teenager with short brown hair. He was wearing a brown coloured hooded jumper and grey coloured pants. A dark grey Commodore with three occupants came to the assistance of the victim but left the scene before police could speak to them. Police urge the occupants of the grey Commodore or any other person who may have witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au Information can be provided anonymously.

Future of pitch and putt in the balance A MEETING will be held next week to discuss the future of the pitch and putt course in Phillip. The Canberra Southern Cross Club, which owns the course, has submitted a development application with the ACT Government that would change the lease conditions for the land. The changed conditions would allow for a possible redevelopment of the course to include other recreational and commercial premises. The application has drawn criticism from the Southern Cross Club
Pitch and Putt Club, the Woden Valley Community Council and the wider community. Almost 100 submissions against the proposal were lodged with ACTPLA while it was on public exhibition, and a petition in opposition to the proposal with 1469 signatures has been tabled in the ACT Legislative Assembly. Planning minister Simon Corbell has called-in the application, but has not made a decision on it either way, or said if he will hand it back to ACTPLA to decide. Southern Cross Pitch and Putt Club chairman Luc Lombardo urged
concerned residents to attend next Wednesday’s meeting. “The meeting is being held to help stop the potential loss of this wonderful public amenity to the Canberra community,” he said. “Resolutions will be put to oppose any change to the current sole purpose lease, which is protecting a par 3 golf course comprising 18 holes and associated facilities from redevelopment.” The public meeting will be held on Thursday, August 11 at 7.30pm in the Aegean room of the Hellenic Club.
Search on for anonymous fraud source ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations Team has concluded a complex and detailed investigation over an eight-month period into the alleged defrauding of the Catholic Education Office in Canberra. As a result of the investigation police have summonsed a 50-year-old Calwell man to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court to answer more than 130 fraud-related charges. A Confiscation of Criminal Assets Act restraining order has already been issued for a Calwell residence and funds currently held in a bank account. Police will allege that the fraudulent
activity commenced in 2004 and was discovered due to an anonymous letter being sent to the Catholic Education Office in late 2010. It will also be alleged that more than $1.2 million has been embezzled from the organisation through the use of fictitious identities and deceptive financial practices. During its lengthy investigation, the ACT Policing Fraud Team executed a series of search warrants to establish the criminal conduct and movement of the funds. Investigators were required to seek assistance from financial institutions
located overseas as police will allege that part of the funds are no longer held in Australia. ACT Policing is strongly urging the author of an anonymous letter to the Catholic Education Office to identify themselves to police. The person can contact police through CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000, via the Crime Stoppers website (www.act.crimestoppers.com .au), or via Police Operations on 131 444. The matter will be heard during a special sitting in the ACT Magistrates Court on August 10, 2011.
