locally first!

Mr Grant was excited to be in Canowindra to see how the money will be spent, “Local construction and trades jobs and local businesses stand to benefit from the activity as community infrastructure is built, refurbish or enhanced. “I look forward to seeing the benefits of this upgrade for the Canowindra community." Currently, the toilet facilities at Memorial Park have been described as "appalling" and "an embarrassment" especially when the park is used for community ceremonies including Australia Day and ANZAC Day. Cabonne Council Mayor, Bob Dowling observed, "the naming of the Community Building Partnership program reflects the true intention of the grants. This project truly is a partnership between State, Local and community bodies". The improvements will involve the demolition of the current toilet block and construction of an accessible toilet, along with ladies and gents amenities. As part of the CBP program guidelines, the Memorial Park toilet facilities project will need to obtain final planning by 30 September 2012, with project completion by 31 March 2013.

CANOWINDRA CWA SPRING WORKSHOPS The Canowindra CWA Branch met on Thursday evening 26 July. Approximately 25 ladies enjoyed dinner together at the Old Vic Inn and were entertained by two guest speakers - one international and one local! Margaret (a friend of Conni Christensen, from Dunedin, NZ) regularly visits the Winton Dinosaur digs in Queensland, and spoke about her experiences unearthing dinosaur bones in the harsh Australian outback. Janie Root, who has lived in Canowindra for 4 years, spoke of her first career as a classical archaeologist, and the digs she has done in Antalia, Turkey. We are looking forward to our spring workshops - "Fascinating!", a guide to making fascinators, with Anne Vincent and Bronwyn Guest on Saturday 8 September, and "How to Plan a Posey" floral arrangements with Leanne Stevenson on Saturday 6 October. Anne Vincent and Bronwyn Guest from Millinery Matters will be conducting their workshop in the CWA Rooms, Blatchford Street Canowindra. Participants will be given a little bit of hat history, shown the basics of how to make a fascinator and be able to select from a range of feathers, flowers, ribbons and veil to create their own stylish headpiece. Fascinators are very versatile headwear and suit almost every face shape or body type. They can be worn in a variety of situations such as Melbourne Cup luncheons, race meetings or weddings, and are very adaptable as one size fits all. They also make great gifts. Cost to attend the workshop is $20 per head ď Š. RSVP by Monday 3 September to Conni Christensen at or Penny Nash on 6364 0218.

"Meeting the Future of Agriculture" 17 - 19 August 2012 at Cowra Research Station

Official Opening by

Hon Katrina Hodgkinson MP Program includes: Fran Rowe, 2012 NSW Women of the Year; Tess Herbert, Director Australian Lot Feeders association & Participant in the Australian Rural Leadership program; young people thriving in agricultural careers; farm tours & social events.

All welcome - members & non-members, male & female. For information, bookings and program see

MEETING THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE It is often said the "change is the only constant". In life and in business something is always changing and it is an accepted that the rate of change is increasing. Farmers are all too aware of this - technology changes, governments change - and change the rules, there are new discoveries so something changes and , of course there is the debate about climate change. This is why NSW Women in Agriculture have chosen to focus on change at their annual symposium, "Country Conversations 2012" being held at the Research Station at Cowra on the weekend of 17 - 19 August. The focus is also on our your people as agents of change. So often the young ones returning to the farm are agents of change in that business. Understandably it is the same in other areas of business too. During the symposium, four young people making a career in agriculture, either in farming, advisory services or research, will address this issue and enter into a conversation with the symposium audience about the opportunities and challenges of a career in agriculture, what their goals are for the future and how they hope to achieve them. Fran Rowe, 2012 NSW Woman of the Year will also address the symposium. Fran established a voluntary rural financial counselling service for farming families facing financial difficulties in 1984 which became the basis for the current national Rural Financial Counselling Service. Also speaking is Tess Herbert from Eugowra. Besides being co-owner and director of three feed lot businesses in central and southern NSW, Tess is on the board of the Australian Lot Feeders Association. She is also participating in the Australian Rural Leadership Program. Michael Cashen, the NSWDPI's climatologist will discuss what has been learned about change and managing change from the climate change issue. NSW Women in Agriculture is honoured to have the Hon. Katrina Hodgkinson MP, Minister for Primary Industries and Small Business, coming to open the symposium.

NSW RURAL WOMEN'S GATHERING The Rural Women's Network (RWN) is a state-wide government program within the Department of Primary Industries, part of Trade & Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services. The NSW Rural Women's Gathering is an annual weekend event organised by local committees with support from the Rural Women's Network. Women's Gatherings are for ALL rural women including: farming women; Aboriginal women; women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; mining women; women in the fishing industry; women who live in regional cities, towns and villages; and coastal women. The 2012 Rural Women’s Gathering is being held in Parkes, from Friday 12 October to Sunday 14 October 2012. Early bird registrations close 5pm Friday 24 August 2012. Normal registrations close 5pm 21 September 2012. Being the 20th anniversary of the gatherings, some 350 to 400 visitors are expected to come to Parkes and the gathering committee is very active in planning and pursuing some fabulous ideas for women. To capitalise on the two national celebrations, the Parkes Rural Women’s Gathering has chosen the themes: Reading and Farming. One of Australia’s best known presenters, Jessica Rowe, has been engaged as the National Year of Reading Keynote speaker. Lana Mitchell, Executive Director and Manager of Backcreek Country Pty Ltd, has been engaged as the National Year of Farming keynote speaker. In 2010 Lana was awarded the RIRDC Rural Woman of the Year for NSW based on her cultivation of hydroponicallygrown flannel flowers as well as her work to build the wildflower industry as a whole. A number of tours and workshops can be selected over the weekend, ranging from an African Drumming Course, to cooking, art and gardening. A Viva Las Vegas Gala Dinner Elvis Tribute Show with Mark Andrew, world famous Elvis impersonator will be held on Saturday evening, catered by Eat Your Greens from Eugowra. Hidden Treasures is not an award, but provides a platform to pay tribute to rural women volunteers who donate their time and energy to help others. Nominating a rural woman for the 2012 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll is a great way to celebrate rural women from across New South Wales who give so much of their time to improving our communities and neighbourhoods. To nominate a Hidden Treasures volunteer simply complete a Nomination Form and tell us a short ‘story’ about why your nominee is worthy. For more information or if you need assistance with your nomination call the NSW Centre for Volunteering on 02 9261 3600 or email: Nominations close 20 August 2012. The 2012 Honour Roll will be launched at the 2012 NSW Rural Women's Gathering being held at Parkes from 12-14 October.

READ HOUR To celebrate the National Year of Reading 2012, Central West Libraries will be hosting a 24 Hour Read starting on Wednesday 12 September 2012 across the local government areas of Orange, Cabonne, Blayney, Cowra and Forbes.

It doesn’t matter what you read: a book; a newspaper; a street map; a reference manual; a timetable; a letter or report; you can read anything you choose – including an audio book! The photos and stories of the 24 Hour Read will be uploaded to the Central West Libraries’ Facebook page throughout the day to show that we are a reading community. You are invited to participate by completing the 24 Hour Read – Registrations form nominating a 10 minute timeslot within that time and forwarding it to: 24 hour Read, Central West Libraries, PO Box 35 Orange 2800 or email You will then be sent further details.

To the editor...

Following on from my last letter to the Canowindra Phoenix about local roads it was pleasing to see a a crew came soon after and tweaked the road from Canowindra to the Moyne Nursing Home, but then stopped. Why didn’t they continue on to the River Rd turnoff, a section of road just as full of deeply potholed sinkholes and carriageway subsidence as the bit that was recently attended? Is it a case of out of sight out of mind? It gets worse when driving past the Nyrang Creek railway crossing to the Gooloogong turnoff, the carriageway is virtually non existent. I see when driving yesterday to Forbes crews have wasted money again dumping hot mix in ruts and holes, with no proper preparation of the damaged areas. I’m no engineer, but from observation, water will run downhill to either drain away, or pool if flow is obstructed. It follows then if the verges of a road are higher than the carriageway then rain water runoff will pool beside the road, soak into the substrata, and cause degradation of the pavement. All along the road to Eugowra are broken and / or elevated verges, so I suggest spoon drains need opening and verges need grading to allow proper runoff, or the subsidences and potholing will just continue. The same applies to the Mandurama Rd. I would invite other opinioned readers to submit their constructive comments, so that a basic road maintenance manual can be prepared by the community to meet Councils obvious need for assistance.

Durkin to Stand Again for Council Anthony Durkin announced today his intention to recontest his position as a Councillor for Cabonne Council in the September local government election. Councillor Durkin, a respected Police Officer and resident of Canowindra, has already served a full term on Cabonne Council. He is keen to continue his work into a second term to see through the many projects and initiatives he has worked on with fellow Councillors over the past four years. These projects include the development of the Canowindra Fitness Path and the completion of the sewage system for Cumnock and Yeoval. “My priorities are roads, economic development and tourism,” said Councillor Durkin. “Roads are crucial and I see it as my job to push for more of Council’s assets and resources to be directed into fixing the roads across the whole shire.” “We also need to continue to work pro-actively on the sustainable economic development of the whole shire,” he says. “Creating opportunities for current businesses to expand, making the region more attractive to new businesses and actively working to bring new businesses into our towns and villages. "We should do this sustainably, with a vision for the future of our children, our farmers, our businesses and our environment.” Durkin advises. On Council amalgamation, one of the most contentious issues of the past twelve months, Durkin’s position is clear, “I am against the amalgamation of the eastern area with Orange City Council under any circumstance and will continue to strive towards strengthening the alliance we have with both Wellington and Blayney Councils.” Durkin believes communication is key to his role as a representative of the rate-payers of Cabonne and is committed to improving the process of contact, reaction and reply to requests from residents. “This will be a new era for Cabonne Council with a new General Manager and Councillors representing the entire shire rather than individual wards,” he says. “Being a Councillor is a hard job, but I am fully committed to another term and will strive to represent all the ratepayers of the Cabonne Council area.” Pictured above is "Durko" being a hands on Councillor at the Free Public Barbecue held at Canowindra Pool in March this year to thank the community for their patience whilst the amenities block was being upgraded.

110 Gaskill Street CANOWINDRA PYTHONS PROGRESS It is with great sadness that the Canowindra Rugby Club lost one of their stalwarts last week. Chris Wren who was not only the strapper for the club for 25 years, he was also a great club man. As remembered by Tony Grant during speeches, Tony spoke of how Chris not only strapped the players each and every week of his 25 years at the club but also would be seen selling raffle tickets, cooking the barbecue and/or anything else that needed doing the course of each season. It was also great to see one of Chris's favourite players, his grandson Ben Boschenok, take to the field on the weekend. Chris would of had a big smile on his face watching that. RIP Chris Wren. Last Saturday the Pythons hosted their last home game of the regular season against the West Wyalong Weevils. With it being a nice warm winters day, there was a good crowd to cheer the boys on. The game started well for the home side with plenty of possession and good field position. Similar to the last few weeks, the boys were pushing that last pass sometimes when it was not even needed, which resulted in the forwards getting plenty of practice in the scrums. The ever hungry Jack Knight soon made his impact in the game with a great dart from the back of the ruck and barged through for the opening try of the game. Dan Muldoon converted. The next try came with the boys in great field position again and Paddy Hayes found himself lurking in the back line and showed the boys how to put a nice pass on the chest with his off load to Mitch Collins for Mitch to score his ninth (as he keeps on telling us) try of the season. The conversion was waved away. The rest of the half was controlled by the Pythons but the Weevils were able to

keep themselves in the game with some good scramble defence and a few dropped balls from the men in blue. The second half was not the best one from the Pythons although the boys controlled the game for most periods of play. With the boys starting to get tired in defence a few penalties went against the Canowindra side which saw the Weevils attacking the Pythons line for the first time in the game. They were able to get across for a 5 pointer and converted to not only keep themselves in the game, but woke the home side up a bit as well. Dan Muldoon took a quick tap from in his own half and managed to somehow run through the whole Weevils side and score one of the better tries of the season. The West Wyalong side hit back and scored a try in the corner through some tired defence. Doon scored the last try of the match by running off Mark Fisher and gave the boys a bonus point win over a team that the boys should have put a few more tries on, though some poor decisions cost the team a few tries. Points for the day went to Dan Muldoon 3, Adam Nash 2, Dan Bowd and Paddy Hayes got one each, and birthday boy Benny Collins was voted Players' Player. The members draws were won by Eddie Wilkinson and Jenny Bray. This weekend sees the last game of the comp against the Orange Aggies at hypothermia hill at the Ag college. The Pythons have already secured third spot on the ladder with Blayney and Condo above them. This means the first week of the semis the Pythons will be travelling out to Condo to take on the Rams on their home turf. last game of the round. Regardless of the result, the following week the Mighty Pythons will be off to contest the major semi-final against Condobolin, in Condo. Go the Pythons!
