BRIDGE OVER BELUBULA RIVER Roads and Maritime Service staff and contractors have spent two days working on the concrete structure of the John Grant Bridge to improve driving conditions, after floods caused settling to the foundations in the last couple of years. Holes were drilled into the concrete approach slab, between the metal expansion joint and asphalt. Then, pumping a quick curing urethane product into the holes and using a laser level workers could accurately measure the gradient required for a smoother driving surface.

Cabonne Council workers will build up the asphalt during the next two weeks to raise the level of the road surface on approach of the bridge to make it smoother for motorists. The $150,000 project is funded equally between Cabonne Council and RMS. Disruptions to the flow of traffic will be in place until the last week of August, weather permitting. Motorists are advised to observe all directions from the traffic controllers, delays will only be of short duration.

BOOK ON BEN HALL: AUTHOR VISIT Author Trevor Shearston will be appearing at Forbes and Orange libraries this Friday to talk about his Ben Hall book titled Game, described as “a moving and brilliant literary novel about the last days of legendary bushranger Ben Hall”. Trevor was planning to include Canowindra on his trip, however a change of plans prevented this. You will be able to hear Trevor be interviewed on ABC Central West from 10am Friday morning. Ben Hall is physically brave, calculating, independent and fearless. He is game. But two policemen have been shot and now the law is closing in. The game has changed, it is kill or be killed, or else get out. It is 1865. For three years Ben Hall and the men riding with him have been lords of every road in mid-western New South Wales from Bathurst to Goulburn, Lambing Flat to Forbes. But with the Harbourers’ Act made law, coach escorts armed now with the new Colt revolving rifle, and mailbags more often containing cheques than banknotes, being game is no longer enough. The road of negotiated surrender is closed, Jack Gilbert and John Dunn have seen to that. Neither time did Ben pull the fatal trigger, but he too will hang if ever the three are taken. Trevor Shearston’s novel breathes life back into the legend of Ben Hall and confirms Shearston as one of Australia’s finest writers. A well-known folk singer on the circuit in the 1970s and 1980s, Shearston came to Ben Hall’s story through the songs written about him. "The songs created and maintained the legend of Hall the bushranger so powerfully that, after a century, the man himself had disappeared," says Shearston. "In writing Game I went looking for the man again, the husband and father, the brother, the friend, and perhaps for some answers to the seeming paradox of a decent man who chose to become a criminal." Trevor will appear 12.30pm Friday 16 August at Forbes Library 2 Victoria Lane, please book by phoning 6852 1463. The Orange talk starts at 5.30pm in Orange City Library 147 Byng Street, to book please call 02 6393 8132.

CANOWINDRA’S SPORTING CHAMPION Federal Member for Calare, John Cobb, has congratulated the local recipients of the first round of the Local Sporting Champions 2013-14 program. “I’m pleased to announce that 7 individuals from Calare have been selected as recipients of a Local Sporting Champions grant,” Mr Cobb. “Young people find it difficult to meet the ongoing and significant costs associated with participation at sporting competitions, particularly those from regional areas. “These grants are designed to help young people pursue their sporting dreams, in the face of distance and limited access to resources, coaching and competition. “The 7 local recipients represent a range of sports and areas within Calare and I’m sure the funding will be put to good use. Who knows we may be helping to create future Olympians!”

Rohan Toole from Canowindra was one the seven successful recipients. “Rohan is an accomplished squash player and represented Squash NSW at the NSW Squash Junior Age Championships in July, where he was vying for selection in the Australian team,” Mr Cobb said. “He previously represented Australia at the 2012 World Cup. I wish Rohan all the best in his endeavours.” The Local Sporting Champions program provides funding to young sportsmen and women who are participating in a state or national sporting competition. The grant can be used for travel costs, accommodation, equipment or uniforms for the nominated sporting competition. Grants of $500 are available for successful individual applicants, and $3,000 for successful team applications. Round 2 for the 2013-14 financial year is now open and closes on 31 October 2013.

1 IN 4 COULD VOTE EARLY Liberal Candidate for Hume Angus Taylor has predicted one in four voters could vote early in the Hume electorate - the highest number ever - through postal votes or pre-polling. He has urged voters who need to vote before Election Day to be ready and informed. "There are many reasons why early voting is on the rise. The big factor this time is that Labor took so long to confirm an election date, many people won't be able to change plans to be in their local area on polling day," Mr Taylor said. "Last week, I sent every voter in Hume a letter with an application form for postal voting - which is a simple process. "I encourage anyone who knows they will have to lodge via pre-poll to be ready to do so in the next couple of weeks. "Pre-polling centres in the Hume electorate open as early as 20 August in Goulburn. In Bowral and Camden (where people who live in Hume can vote) pre-polling is open from 26 August to 6 September. In Cootamundra, Cowra, Young and Yass pre-polling will run in the last week only - from 31 August to 6 September. "I urge people to vote early if you're not around on 7 September. Every vote is of Please turn up a little early to ensure we vital importance," Mr Taylor said. can start on time. See you there...

TIGERS HOLD UP COWBOYS Points were racked up quickly in Saturday's only game as both Canowindra and Gooloogong tried to prove a point. Canowindra needed a win and Gooly wanted their last game to be one of their best. The first half was competitive and finished with the Tigers leading by a nervous 12 points. Canowindra came out keen to put more points on the board and hold the Cowboys to as little score they could. It wasn’t until the last 20 minutes of the second half that things began to really heat up. Bowman finally broke through the defence over the line, Moe juggled, and held onto, the ball to be dragged down after making a great break. Tom Roth ran hard forcing penalties and Rob Burn was able to create play. Blocka and Sam kept the boys focused as some of the opposition’s tactics, at times, became questionable. All the boys played exceptionally well, holding out some determined Cowboys on all but four occasions. Try scorers were Nick Wilson, Sam O, Brendan Traves, Brydon Hughes, Rob Burn, Brad Bowman, Brodie Friend, Aaron Earsman, Blocka Wooley 2 and Matt McLean. Rob Converted nine times. Points went to: 3 Aaron Earsman; 2 Tim Holley and Blocka; and 1 to Moe Birmingham. Final score Canowindra 58 to Gooloogong 20. This week was the Tigers last home game for the season and next week all grades will play at Grenfell for the last game of the season before finals start. The Canowindra Tigers would like to thank everyone that has attended games, bought raffle tickets, followed the team's progress or supported the Club in any form this season. A big thank you to all our sponsors for making the season possible and supporting us year in and out. Your contributions are more than appreciated. We hope to see everyone at Grenfell helping the Tigers keep their finals dream alive. Go the Tigers!!!

Bailey Scifleet made great breaks and his passes from dummy spot on. Joel Wheeler was on his game and put forward some handy fifth and last kicks, engaging Lachy Warn to chase and secure, setting up Lynden Smith who took a gamble on the blindside and didn't accept any tackles to score next to the posts. Bailey Coker helped wrap up tackles and ran some nice straight lines to gain handy metres. On debut for the 12s from the 10s Jack de Freitas playing prop had a great game. He worked hard in defence and with several outstanding fast, attacking runs he boosted the team’s confidence. After the game the whole team said, "How good did Jack play! He's player of the week coach." And deservedly so. Well done Jack and well played Tiger 12s Score Trundle 36 Tigers 6.
