The existing Weipa solar farm, located at the back of Nanum, is expected to triple in size to help reduce Rio Tinto’s reliance on diesel for power generation at both the mine and Weipa township.

Solar investment to reduce reliance on diesel

Future looks bright By MATT NICHOLLS

WEIPA’S solar farm will triple in size as Rio Tinto looks to reduce its reliance on diesel power generation in Cape York. The mining giant has approved a new solar farm and battery storage in a move that will more than triple the local electricity network’s solar

generation capacity and help provide cleaner power to Rio Tinto’s operations. Energy company EDL has been contracted to build, own and operate a 4MW solar plant and 4MW/4MWh of battery storage at Weipa. Work on the battery facilities will start this year, with construc-

tion of the whole project expected to be complete by late 2022. The new solar farm and battery storage will complement the existing 1.6MW solar farm at Weipa, which was completed in 2015 and is also owned and operated by EDL. The 4MWh battery system will be built next to the existing Weipa

power station and will help provide a stable power network for Rio Tinto’s Weipa operations and the Weipa township. “The new solar farm and battery storage at Weipa will help us lower our carbon footprint and diesel use in a reliable way,” Rio Tinto Weipa boss Michelle Elvy said. “The original Weipa solar farm

was the largest solar facility at an off-grid Australian mine site at the time it was built, and it played an important role in showing the viability of renewable energy systems in remote locations.” Rio Tinto also supply the power for Napranum and the local council has looked at alternative options.

Rio Tinto invests in solar power for community From – Page 1 A Rio Tinto spokesperson said the existing 22km interconnecting line between the Andoom Power Station and the Weipa Power Station is also being upgraded to be able to send power to each network to support greater power transfer and sharing of load. “The new solar farm and battery storage system is part of Rio Tinto’s group-wide commitment to reduce emissions across our operations,” Ms Elvy said. “There is clearly more work to be done, but projects like this are an important part of meeting our climate targets.” EDL chief executive James Har-

man said: “We welcome the opportunity to continue supporting Rio Tinto to reduce carbon emissions. “EDL will be leveraging expertise from our hybrid renewable energy systems around Australia to deliver clean and reliable energy for Rio Tinto’s operations and the local community.” The combined solar capacity and battery will provide about 11 gigawatt hours of energy annually. Combined with upgrades to the existing power network, the improvements will reduce Weipa’s diesel consumption by an estimated 7 million litres per year and lower annual carbon dioxide emissions by about 20,000 tonnes.

The opening of the Weipa solar farm in 2015 attracted plenty of attention as an Australian-first for an off-grid mine site.

Cook MP votes in favour of controversial VAD bill NEW laws allowing voluntary assisted dying in Queensland were passed by parliament last week. Member for Cook Cynthia Lui was one of the supporters of the legislation, which was a conscience vote for Labor and LNP politicians. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk paid tribute to members of parliament for the dignified manner in which the bill was debated and the historic conscience vote that enabled it to pass. “This is a deeply personal matter and we have heard the moving stories that prompted members to vote in the way they have,” the Premier said. “We got to this point after years of consultation with the people of this state and expert advice. It was not rushed. “Queenslanders will now have a choice that I know many families wish they had.” Deputy Premier Steven Miles said the state government was boosting palliative care funding by $171 million over five years, taking annual investment to $250 million, so Queenslanders could have the very best, holistic care at the end of their life.

Member for Cook Cynthia Lui helped pass the VAD bill in parliament.

“Good palliative care starts the day a patient is diagnosed and will increase in intensity over time and as death approaches,” Mr Miles said. “But for the very small number of people whose suffering cannot be eased, voluntary as-

sisted dying should be available at that person’s request. “These laws are fundamentally about compassion. “But they are also about giving back control to people who have had their autonomy stripped from them by illness.

“It comes after decades of advocacy by passionate citizens, themselves carrying the trauma of having watched relatives die in pain or facing a traumatic death themselves. “I am grateful to those MPs on both sides who expressed their support for the Bill. “I’m also grateful to those who expressed their opposition to the Bill. While we respectfully disagree, I believe the debate has been richer for their contributions.” Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said Queensland Health would be putting in place the complex clinical and administrative arrangements for the scheme’s implementation. Queensland is the fifth Australian state to make voluntary assisted dying legal. To be eligible for voluntary assisted dying a person must meet all five criteria. They must:  Have an eligible condition;  Have decision-making capacity in relation to voluntary assisted dying;  Be acting voluntarily and without coercion;  Be aged at least 18 years;  Fulfil residency requirements.

PARENTS planning for a baby could reasonably expect to be able to give birth locally, the chief executive officer of Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service says. Mums can already have their baby at Cooktown and Weipa is due to come online with a new birthing unit by mid-2022. “The new birthing unit will be located adjacent to an existing ward, as well as the hospital operating theatre,” TCHHS boss

Bev Hamerton said at the official opening of the CT scanner. “An additional two doctors with obstetrics skills are being recruited for the birthing unit. “Five midwives, two health workers and an administration officer also will be recruited by the time the unit is fully operational next year. “The unit is expected to deliver more than 50 babies a year and will service Cape communities including Weipa, Napra-

num, Aurukun, Coen, Kowanyama, Lockhart River, Mapoon and Pormpuraaw. “This new birthing unit will mean expectant women in these communities will not have to travel to Cairns. “They can have their babies closer to home, which we know is a preference.” However, women with higher risk pregnancies will continue to travel to Cairns for more specialised care.

“The hospital’s pharmacy and renal dialysis unit have already been relocated and upgraded and a new primary healthcare clinic established, as part of a range of improvements and upgrades worth nearly $9 million in total,” Ms Hamerton said. “In addition, a major upgrading of the hospital’s air-conditioning and chiller systems is currently under way and a new all-weather carpark is being built.”

Gary Meredith leads a team of construction volunteers at the Wallaby Creek Festival grounds. Gary and his partner Bella have been volunteering for all the festivals and this year’s will be their 19th. Gary looks after staging, construction, water lines and Bella looks after aesthetics, signage and shade sails.

Last call for volunteers at Cape festival WITH preparations at Wallaby Creek Festival’s new site nearly completed, organisers are calling for more volunteers to help during the three-day music and arts event that kicks off Friday. Festival director Jen Midgley said that places were still available for rubbish collection volunteers to help keep the festival grounds clean and tidy. “If people are environmentally inclined they should consider signing up,” she said. “There will be two trips, one

in the morning and one in the evening, picking up all the bins and sorting them.” Volunteers are also needed to assist with security and ticket checking at the festival gates. So far over 80 volunteers have signed up and organisers are hoping for a total of 120 to help with the smooth running of the festival. Volunteers will have the cost of their tickets reimbursed when they complete 12 hours of work over the three days.

To apply as a volunteer, first purchase your ticket and then visit the festival’s website to register. Once you arrive at the festival get in touch with the volunteer coordinator to get issued with your work card for recording your hours, then at the completion of the festival you can apply for your ticket to be reimbursed. Ms Midgley said that festivalgoers should also remember to bring appropriate clothing and camping equipment.

“They should bring shoes because it is going to be a bit of a rough site this first time and also their solar shower bag, because there is heaps of water but not many showers,” she said. For those unable to attend the full three days, a $90 one-day ticket for Sunday is available for purchase at the gate. Entry is free on Sunday for residents within the 4895 postcode area (ID check upon entry). The schedule has been posted on the festival’s Facebook page.

Cook Shire gifts ammo to councils By MATT NICHOLLS

COOK Shire Council has given away and sold its surplus ammunition to smaller councils on the Cape, as well as a local business. A large quantity of ammunition was bought through the now defunct Cape York Weeds and Feral Animal Program in 2012 and 2013 for use during aerial shooting programs targeting feral pigs. When the program ceased to operate in 2014, the council was unable to continue funding and implementing aerial shooting. As a consequence, a large quantity of ammunition remained in Cook Shire’s possession. The council then obtained a licence to sell the stock to landholders, but was rejected from doing so on multiple occasions by the state government. Cook Shire then tried to sell the ammunition to a business by tender process, but no of-

fers were received. Following the tender process, direct contact was made with five parties who undertake aerial feral pig culls across Cape York to investigate the possibility of distributing the ammunition free of charge. At last month’s council meeting, it was passed unanimously that the ammunition be given to those five different parties. The Mapoon, Napranum, Pormpuraaw and NPA councils were all given .308 ammunition, while Andrew Hartwig from Cape York Natural Resource Management and Australian Wildlife Management Solutions was also offered rounds. To say thank you for the donation, Pormpuraaw’s rangers offered two days of treatment of grader grass on MusgraveStrathgordon Road as in-kind payment. Cooktown business The Lure Shop was also able to buy 6400 of .30-30 ammunition at a negotiated price.

Weipa’s Jacki and Blake Goodwin are riding from Cairns to Cooktown this weekend as part of the Cardiac Challenge.

Detective pedalling for her brother WEIPA police officer Jacki Goodwin and her son Blake will ride from Cairns to Cooktown this weekend as part of the annual Cardiac Challenge. Team Blair Hair was meant to be a trio, but instead Jacki and Blake are taking it on after tragedy struck early in 2020 when Jacki’s younger brother Blair Kissel died suddenly from a cardiac condition while mowing the lawn.

It was Christmas in 2019 that Blair and his young family travelled to Weipa to enjoy the holiday with family that resulted in Blair promising to improve his health and fitness by making a pact to take part in the Cardiac Challenge when his nephew Blake turned 12. Ms Goodwin said doing the ride in his honour was helping them heal and remember him while the family deals with the grief of his loss.

“Blair was the first to admit he was overweight and had a bit of ‘dad bod’ but recognised it was time to improve his way of living by setting aside time to exercise,” she said. “Blair maintained a fairly stressful job, was previously a smoker and certainly enjoyed an alcoholic drink or two but at no point did we think his lifestyle was that bad it would cause us to lose him suddenly.” Challenge rolls in – Page 5


riders Popular bakery rises from Bike rolling into the ashes for busy season Cooktown By MATT NICHOLLS

JANA Whittaker and her team at the Cooktown Bakery have been run off their feet this year in what has been a sharp turnaround for the business. Just weeks out from Christmas, the bakery was destroyed by a fire, which threatened to end one of Cooktown’s most popular tourist destinations. But with a new location in the CBD and loyal staff in tow, the business has been able to cater for a massive tourism season. “It’s been lovely. The new premises is great and the locals have been marvellous; so supportive,” Jana told Cape York Weekly. “The tourists keep rolling in and we’ve been busy all year.” The new site on Charlotte Street opened in March and it’s been flat chat ever since. “The owners of this place gave us a ring and said ‘have a look’,” Jana said. “It had been used as a restaurant before but hadn’t been outfitted for a bakery. We had to start from scratch.” Keeping core staff on the books while the doors were shut was the key to this year’s success. “I was lucky that we could keep two of my long-term staff with

some casual work between my husband (Greg) and I,” Jana said. “And the baker. If you lose your baker you are in big trouble.” The old bakery site was iconic and was often the first business that tourists noticed when coming into Cooktown. The car park remains, but there is no sign of the old building after the remains were demolished and cleared. Jana said it was a shame to lose

the old site, but there were positives about being right in town. “A lot of people are saying that when they come over that rise they go ‘oh look, the bakery is gone’ but then they find us here without any problem,” she said. “It’s still a really good position and we have a side street that can cater for the caravans and the campers. “I haven’t seen the campers like this for 10 years.”

The Cooktown Expo was a big challenge for the bakery, with the team working 10-hour days for weeks to keep up with the demand. “We couldn’t keep up with the pies ... they were selling quicker than we could make them,” Jana said with a smile. “It was really good in terms of business but we are usually closed on Sundays because you need a day off. You can’t just run yourself into the ground.”

MOTORISTS driving between Cooktown and Cairns should be on the lookout for a massive group of cyclists ahead of the annual Cardiac Challenge bike ride. The cyclists ride from Cairns to Cooktown over three days, starting with the Kuranda range on Saturday morning. They are expected to roll into Cooktown in the latter stages of Monday morning. The Cardiac Challenge began in 2007 and was launched by the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation, which has raised more than $4 million for cardiac services in that time. The three-day, 333km ride attracts people from all walks of life and has set a fundraising goal of $429,000 this year. On Sunday night, cyclists had already raised $359,575. Funds raised through this year’s event will go towards a ventilator for cardiology, a lung function testing system, and an endobronchial ultrasound system for respiratory. The contingent will camp at Mount Carbine on Saturday night, then Lakeland on Sunday. The final day is the easiest, with just 79km to pedal before arriving in Cooktown.

Pormpuraaw’s leading the Screening bus to roll way in vaccination uptake into region PORMPURAAW is now the closest Cape community to the national 80 per cent fully vaccinated target. Just over 77 per cent of the current estimated eligible population in Pormpuraaw aged 12 years and over has now received two doses of Pfizer vaccine. However, Torres and Cape HHS chief executive Bev Hamerton said the actual percentage may end up being much higher. “I understand that a number of people in the community may no longer be there, so the eligible population numbers we have been using will need to be revised,” she said. “We will be reviewing these in the coming days and, once the population numbers are adjusted, the actual percentage of fully vaccinated people may be much higher than 80 per cent. “Whatever the case, the turnout at Pormpuraaw has been magnificent. I want to thank the community and its leaders for getting behind the vaccination program so solidly and achieving this incredible result. Very well done to you all.” Ms Hamerton said several communities in the Torres Strait also were highly vaccinated and expected to come close to or surpass the 80 per cent fully vaccinated mark when catch-up clinics returned to

the region later this month and into October. Other Cape York communities, like Lockhart River, also are likely to come close to or surpass the 80 per cent fully vaccinated class in the coming weeks as vaccinations continue. Ms Hamerton said, as well as thanking community residents for turning up to the rolling vaccination clinics, she wanted to thank health service partner the Royal

Flying Doctor Service for its strong support in helping deliver the clinics across parts of Cape York. “They have been a real help to us,” she said. Ms Hamerton said 1840 doses of vaccine had been delivered last week at a first dose clinic at Hope Vale and second dose clinics at Pormpuraaw, Weipa and Aurukun. “We now have 64 per cent of the Weipa estimated eligible population who have received at least one

dose of vaccine and 46 per cent who are fully vaccinated through our health clinics,” she said. “However, at Weipa, these percentages do not include those residents who have been vaccinated through the local GP or pharmacies, so the actual percentages may be higher.” As the vaccination program continues to roll out across Cape York, Ms Hamerton said she wanted to encourage Cooktown residents to book for the upcoming COVID–19 vaccination clinics in the town. She said 374 people had booked so far for the first week of the clinic at Cooktown, starting from September 27. “We can accommodate up to 1000 people in that first week, so there are plenty of free slots available,” she said. “For Cooktown, as with all our vaccination clinics, including catch-up clinics, you can book in by phoning (07) 3497 3442 – but please also feel free to just walk in. “We understand that many Cooktown residents may have already been vaccinated through the local GP practice. “But if you haven’t yet been vaccinated, please do so when the vaccination team is in Cooktown. “We will return from October 18 to 29 to deliver the second dose.”

SOUTHERN Cape women will get access to free breast screens in the coming weeks. The BreastScreen Cairns Service will visit Wujal Wujal, Hope Vale and Cooktown during September and October. The free service is available for all women aged over 40 years. Women aged between 50 and 74 in particular are strongly recommended to have a breast screen every two years. The Mobile BreastScreen Service will visit the Wujal Wujal Primary Health Centre from September 28 to 30, followed by the Hope Vale Primary Health Centre from October 6 to 14. The service will also visit Cooktown across from the courthouse on Charlotte Street from October 6 to 21. BreastScreen Cairns health promotion officer Sandra Peut said local women were encouraged to attend the free service while it was in their area. “Our mobile service visits the region every two years, and we urge women to take advantage of this opportunity by booking a free breast screen,” she said. Appointments can be made by phoning 13 20 50, seeing your Health Worker, or book online at www.breastscreen.qld.gov.au

Hope Vale school puts on a show THEATRE lovers around Australia last week tuned into the Cape York Aboriginal Australia Academy’s original show called E = mc² – The Musical. The musical was a homage to the legendary scientists who contributed to some of the greatest scientific discoveries of past three centuries leading up to Einstein’s breakthrough. The cast of Hope Vale students, teachers and parents played the parts of Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday, Emile du Chatelet, Antoine and Marie-Anne Lavoisier, Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn. The four main characters used a time machine to travel to meet these famous scientists at various points in their lives. The performance included hiphop, choral music and pop and included a song sung in the local Guugu Yimithirr language. The 70-minute musical was performed for one night only under the stars in a spectacular outdoor amphitheatre. E = mc² – The Musical was part of the Oz-e-science curriculum developed by education experts at Good to Great Schools Australia. The production was part of the way schools engage families with the science their children are learning in school. The whole school from Prep to Grade 6 were in the performance. Local teacher Tamara Gibson, who plays Emilie du Chatelet, said

the musical helped give students another understanding of science. “It’s exciting how the curriculum gets parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties and other extended members of the family involved in education, particularly science,” she said. “It gives students an understanding how the world evolves around us. “It’s the world’s most famous equation, E=Mc2, but what does it really mean? It means Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared.” Good to Great Schools Australia director of arts Chris Kohn said that underlying the fun was a serious message about the importance of science education for all Australian children. “Using musical theatre and family engagement as a platform for science education and learning about scientific discovery is an enriching experience for the students,” he said. “Everyone in Hope Vale com-

munity has worked very hard to put on this unique and exciting event.” Good to Great Schools Australia founder and co-chair Noel Pearson said the decline in science education and particularly for Indigenous students was an issue of national concern. “The OECD’s PISA tests show a continuing decline in Australian students’ science results. There is a large gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children in science,” Mr Pearson said. “There is also a significant gap between boys and girls. Science education is an issue of national concern. “Good to Great Schools Australia is reorienting thinking about science education. “Science belongs to every Australian child – the work of Albert Einstein, Emile du Chatelet and Lise Meitner belongs to us all.” A replay of the performance is on YouTube.

AURUKUN man Waynead Wolmby, who secured a place on the Indigenous Marathon Program 2021 squad in April, has begun his training with the aim of competing in the famous New York City Marathon. The 19-year-old teacher’s aide and student mentor at Aurukun State School was one of only 14 successful applicants out of 150 from across Australia. A Wik Mungkan Kugu and Muminh man, Waynead is the youngest member of the 2021 squad and the first successful applicant from Aurukun to join the IMP. “I’m running for change in Aurukun. I want to be a leader and show that if I can run a marathon anyone can do it,” he said. Waynead only began his training last year when he joined the Aurukun Deadly Runners and said it took some time to get into shape. “At the start I used to get stitches and cramps, but then they said you’ve go to eat the

right food and helped me look at my nutrition and things like that,” he said. Selection trials for the IMP began in February this year but it wasn’t until April that Waynead got the call from head coach and IMP manager Damian Tuck to tell him he had made the squad. “I (couldn’t) believe I made the squad... far out! I went home and told my parents and they were so happy, the whole room just lit up, it was incredible,” he said. Education is also a large part of the IMP program and squad members are required to complete a Certificate IV in Indigenous Leadership and Health Promotion, a Level I Recreational Running Coach Accreditation, CPR and First Aid qualifications, Aboriginal Mental Health First Aid and media training. The program aims for its graduates to become healthy lifestyle leaders and return to their communities as agents of change, inspiring and encouraging people to adopt active and healthy lifestyles.

Cape York Road Runners weighed in the two biggest boars of the event.

Long trip pays off for newcomers SCOTT Coleman and Tyson Locke travelled far and wide to find their prey for the Weipa Pig Hunt and ended up with the two biggest boars in the space of seconds. “We went down to Pormpuraaw – we didn’t get that far but we went a fair way,” Locke said on Sunday. “We had about 45 minutes sleep at Musgrave (Roadhouse) and then made it back to Weipa for the weigh-in.” Their team’s five dogs were a little worse for wear after copping the brunt of a stubborn boar, but will recuperate. “We had two older dogs and three pups and when we got the biggest boar we were annoyed that the pups were nowhere to be seen. “It turned out that they had gone an extra few hundred metres and got another one, which turned out to be the second biggest boar.” Big crowds attended the weighin and presentation at the Carpentaria Golf Club on Saturday night. A massive 244 pigs were caught by the 48 teams. Police reported no incidents and the committee thanked sponsors

and attendees for their contribution to another successful event. WEIPA PIG HUNT WINNERS Biggest overall pig: 89.95kg boar – Cape York Road Runners (Scott Coleman, Tyson Locke).

Good morning for Tez TERRY Oberleuter was Sunday’s winner of the Dawn Busters golf, beating John Dall in a close contest. Ross Craven had the longest drive and picked up the nearest to pin prize. Dave Sands had a regrettable round and claimed the Hoffman’s.

Tickets on sale for iconic Cape York race meeting THE Cooktown Cup race meeting is just around the corner and tickets are now on sale for those attending the November 6 event. Treasurer Gloria Savage said there would be no tickets sold at the gate this year. “We are expecting another big crowd but we don’t want people to turn up on the day and end up disappointed because they didn’t buy a ticket online,” she said. “That’s why we are asking everyone to get in early and buy your ticket online so you don’t miss out and so we can prepare for the numbers.” The corporate tent area has already sold out this year and, with six races on the card, the Cooktown Amateur Turf Club

Rick rolls the field COOKTOWN club captain was not a popular man on Saturday after scheduling a ‘no driver’ event on a typical windy afternoon. With winds gusting to 55km/h, some notoriously difficult holes were made even harder without the the “Big Dog” in hand. Rick took out the stroke event, winning by six shots with a nett 67. Sam Godfrey Roberts was runner-up and third was Mark Rolan with a nett 76. Race to the Bay leader Steve Butler played a Super Up card to shore up his lead but fell agonisingly short of finishing in the required top three with a nett 76 (lost in a countback). The nearest to the pins went to Steve Butler for 2/11, Graham Burton took 14 and Bluey Hobbs held onto 9/18.

is expecting trainers and jockeys to travel from far and wide for the meeting. “We have got a couple of extra races with good prizemoney thanks to Racing Queensland,” said vice president Peter Shields. “The Cup is a Country Cups Challenge Qualifier and we’ve got a Country Stampede Open Qualifier as well. “Those two races should give an incentive for trainers to make the trip up here.” The track is looking good, with Des Savage and others working around the clock to mow and water the surface.

Islander culture put on pedestal THURSDAY Island has put on a spectacular display of Torres Strait Islander culture for the Winds of Zenadth festival. The theme this year, selected by the Indigenous Advisory Committee, was “One Mat, Many Patterns” which signifies, reflects and acknowledges the many distinct cultures and people that make up the region of Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait). The festival kicked off on Thursday with a Welcome to Country from Kaurareg Elder Uncle Saila Savage followed by several electrifying performances. On the lineup were: the Torres Strait Rangers Dance Team, Guiga Ahdan Dance Team, Poeypiyam Boigu Island Dance Team, the local Eip Karem Beizam Dance Team and the young Badu Island Island Stars Dance Team. Friday was declared a Cultural Festival Holiday in the region and many families, tourists and visitors gathered under the cool shade of Anzac Park trees to watch more

traditional dancing and enjoy other live entertainment. Attendees were also treated to a smorgasbord of traditional foods, sweets, artefacts, art and jewellery from stall-holders. MC Gabriel Bani took a moment to reflect on how the festival has evolved since the first Winds

Of Zenadth organised by his late father, Cultural Elder and linguist, Adhi Ephraim Bani. There were speeches from leaders in the region including Torres Shire mayor Vonda Malone, TSIRC mayor Philemon Mosby and TSRA chair Pedro Stephen. Torres Shire CEO Dalassa

Yorkston said she was heartened by the vibrant atmosphere of this year’s festival despite the difficulties of dealing with the pandemic. “I loved every minute I was on the festival ground, people were engaging, there was happiness felt and seen on every face,” she said. “Once again, this festival was

special, it was important, and it was heart-warming. “It may have been limited to only a two-day festival, but reached deep into our hearts as the sounds of the warup (island drum) and trum/luumoot, combined with our songs, bought joyful tears to all who attended. “It was a wonderful blessing to have our Elders be a part of the festival and council wishes to express our sincere thanks to the Star of the Sea Elders Village and to our local families for making it possible for their attendance.” Ms Yorkston also praised the success of vaccination efforts in the community and said the high vaccination rate was crucial to the festival going ahead this year. “The COVID-19 vaccination uptake in the Torres Strait was pleasing, and as it reached 74 percent on Thursday Island, we felt assured of the festival continuing.” The Winds of Zenadth Cultural Festival return next year from May 29 until June 3.

JCU campus name change Newspaper making a recognises contributions comeback JAMES Cook University’s Thursday Island campus has been gifted a local Indigenous name to acknowledge the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The Kaurareg Traditional Owners have given the Thursday Island campus the name Ngulaigau Mudh (pronounced ngoo-lai-gow mud), which means “house of knowledge” in the dialect of the Kala Lagaw Ya, a traditional language of the Torres Strait. Indigenous language names were announced last year for JCU’s Townsville, Cairns and Mount Isa campuses, with a naming ceremony also planned for the university’s Mackay campus. Vice Chancellor Professor Sandra Harding said the naming ceremonies acknowledge and celebrate JCU’s campuses, reflecting the shared sense of connection to place. “We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and the significance of our place in northern Queensland and the Tropics more broadly – the knowledge shared and co-created and the impact on the region and nation, as

Vice Chancellor Professor Sandra Harding, Betty Te Kahika Mabo, Salia Savage and Chancellor Bill Tweddell.

part of JCU’s enduring legacy after more than half a century in northern Queensland,” she said. “The naming of each campus stands as tribute to JCU’s history and our deep respect to the traditional custodians of our campuses and their connection to Country. “It reflects our shared history and purpose and gives further effect to the University’s Reconciliation Action Plan and Strategy.”

The Pro Vice Chancellor of Indigenous Education and Strategy Professor Martin Nakata said JCU valued the important contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made to the community, and was welcoming of Indigenous Australians. “We are very proud of the achievements of JCU’s Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, graduates and

staff, and the cultural richness and diversity that brings to our university community,” he said. The Thursday Island campus includes JCU’s Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine Clinical Research and Training Facility, and provides research, teaching and learning facilities for JCU students in the Torres Strait region, as well as community engagement.

THE Torres Strait’s long-serving newspaper has been revived and will return to shelves this month. The Torres News will be owned and operated by the Torres Strait Islander Media Association. TSIMA operations manager Diat Alferink, who runs the radio station 4MW, will be named as editor in chief. The Torres News produced its last edition as a standalone newspaper in 2019. The former owner merged it with Cape York News in October of that year. When the pandemic reached our shores, the merged paper was shut down in March, 2020. It made a brief comeback, only for it to be closed again in May this year. It is understood the Torres News masthead was gifted to TSIMA by the previous owners. The future of this liftout is now being determined. “It’s going to be a great opportunity and challenge for TSIMA and we have previously offered to lend assistance to get a published paper in the Torres Strait region,” Cape York Weekly editor Matt Nicholls said.

Defence sends second aid team to PNG A SECOND Australian Defence Force planning team has deployed to Papua New Guinea, increasing support to the PNG government’s COVID-19 response. The five person team will take over from the original Operation PNG Assist contingent who have been providing operations, logistics and health support to the PNG Provincial Health Authorities since May this year. Outgoing Contingent Commander Major Peter Southern said his three person team

worked closely with the PNG Defence Force to achieve positive outcomes. “With the PNG Defence Force and Provincial Health Authorities we have supported the PNG led vaccination rollout in the Western Province, increasing the vaccination rates within the community,” he said. “We coordinated rotary wing assistance to get vaccines into remote locations, enhanced access to medical facilities through a new bridge and jetty, worked with PNG authorities

to introduce new planning tools and build a bespoke database for vaccination tracking.” Major Southern said the most rewarding part of the deployment was knowing their work saved lives. “We supported the PNG Government’s efforts to bring vaccination messaging into remote communities and saw locals listen to and act on the information, raising their sleeves to get the jab,” he said. The incoming contingent, which includes members across

the three Services, recently completed mandatory quarantine. They will continue to provide operations, health and logistics advice in the Western and Marobe provinces under the command of Royal Australian Navy Commander Matt Curnow. “Our team has hit the ground running and we look forward to working with the PNG Defence Force and Provincial Health Authorities as they continue to contribute to the PNG Government’s COVID-19 response,” Commander Curnow said.

Thursday Island police did random patrols throughout the Torres Strait, including breath tests on Badu Island, as part of Road Safety Week.

Road Safety Week sends a message across Strait POLICE on Thursday Island said operations undertaken as part of Queensland Road Safety Week were a great success in spreading the 2021 campaign message that “Road safety is everyone’s responsibility, but that starts with you”. QRSW took place last month and is an annual statewide road safety campaign run jointly by Queensland Police and the Department of Transport and Main Roads. Thursday Island Police Senior Constable Taiina Stevens said that the number of lives lost, and people seriously injured in crashes on Queensland roads this year, was continuing to rise and is on track to be one of the worst in a decade. During QRSW, police from Thursday Island Station were out engaging with the community and providing road safety education during two “Coffee with a Cop” events. Officer in Charge Senior Sergeant Allison Williams and Senior Constable Lisa Ovens attended one such event, where community members were able to talk with officers about educa-

tion and take a pledge to observe road safety rules. Police on Thursday Island and Badu Island conducted 39 random breath tests as part of the campaign, which also included licence, registration and vehicle compliance checks. Two drivers were found to

be unlicensed and charged with driving without a licence without a lawful reason and three vehicles were found to be unregistered or uninsured. Fines for driving an unregistered vehicle can range from $330 to $440 and driving a vehicle whilst uninsured is $550.

“It is a timely reminder to ensure your vehicle is registered and this can be done by calling Thursday Island Magistrates Court on 4212 3900,” said Senior Constable Stevens. She reminded the community that police can be anywhere, anytime and the importance of wearing seat belts and not using mobile phones while driving. “If you see police out and about on T.I. doing RBTs or vehicle intercepts, it is mindful to know that the officers might not be from Cairns Traffic,” Senior Constable Stevens said. “Sergeant Corey Stevens was approached and asked when he was leaving, as they knew he was from Cairns Traffic. “The women asking did not believe him when he told her he was stationed on the island.” As of July 26, 2021, it is illegal to hold a mobile phone in your hand or have it resting on any part of your body, including in your lap when driving. This applies even when you are stopped in traffic and the ticket for using a mobile phone while driving is four demerit points and a $1033 fine.

Gong for life-saving pilot boat captain A PILOT boat captain has been recognised for saving the lives of two Torres Strait men. In December last year, Ritesh Bhamaria was expertly guiding oil tanker MT Godam through the Torres Strait in adverse weather conditions when he and the vessel crew sighted a distant hand waving for help in the rough sea. That movement turned out to be an uncle and nephew – both local fishermen – who had been clinging to floating debris for close to 17 hours following the sinking of their boat, with no access to an emergency beacon or other survival equipment. Captain Bhamaria recalled his surprise at seeing the two stranded men but wasted no time in taking action. They struggled to maintain sight of the people, losing sight of them three times. Finally, when they caught sight of them again, the crew realised the two men were being circled by sharks. Rather than risking the ship’s crew by launching a rescue boat in the prevailing weather conditions and potentially not getting to the stranded fishermen in time, the pilot made the tough decision to turn the 251-metre ship around in restricted waters. “Without hesitation, I turned the ship to the side where I had clearance,” Mr Bhamaria said. “The two biggest issues were maintaining sight of the two men while we turned the ship around and then approaching them safely – a huge ship arriving alongside a piece of wood with two men holding on, poses quite a risk to their safety. “We couldn’t stop the ship near

the survivors – the ship’s propeller would have posed too great a risk to the two men and the reef just behind them. “On the first turn, we dropped a smoke marker with a lifebuoy as close as 20 metres from them. “The fishermen were then able to cling to the buoy, while the smoke helped the approaching rescue craft home in on the location of the survivors. “Meanwhile the movement of the ship in the water deterred the sharks away from the men. “Then we circled again, keeping the reef behind us, this time with the intention of picking them up. “I manoeuvred the ship to within a distance of 1–1.5 metres of the survivors floating on the wooden plank, dropping the speed of the ship to a bare minimum – about two knots with the propellers stopped. “We managed to get the uncle out of the water first. But by the time we were trying to get his nephew out, the rescue helicopter arrived, so we lowered him back into the water, so the helicopter could retrieve him safely.” It was a harrowing ordeal for the

survivors, but ultimately Captain Bhamaria’s quick-thinking and brave actions saved the lives of the two men. These actions earned him a Certificate of Commendation from the International Maritime Organisation as part of their Exceptional Bravery at Sea Award. Humbled and thankful for the honour, Captain Bhamaria was quick to share his commendation with the wider piloting community of Australia and the master and crew of the MT Godam. “I am grateful and appreciative that AMSA nominated me for the award,” he said. “However, any pilot would have done the same thing, so this recognition is for the whole Australian piloting community. “Many thanks to the master and crew of MT Godam, Reef VTS, AMSA and the shore Rescue team, because it was an all-round team effort,” he said. AMSA chief executive Mick Kinley said international recognition of this level of bravery from one of Australia’s marine pilots was a significant accomplishment. “Captain Bhamaria and the ship’s crew displayed outstanding seamanship, coming together to the aid of others,” Mr Kinley said. “The knowledge and expertise of our marine pilots is key to the safe arrival and passage of ships bringing supplies and trade with Australia. “But in this instance, Captain Bhamaria’s knowledge of the surrounding area and quick thinking allowed him to make decisions that enabled the rescue of the two men. “Captain Bhamaria is certainly deserving of this accolade from the IMO for his exceptional bravery.”

Telstra’s Rachel Cliffe and Josie Pickering at the new Bamaga Telstra base station.

Telstra tower a tick for NPA passengers The BAMAGA Airport now has improved Telstra 4G mobile coverage after the installation of a small cell base station. Telstra regional general manager Rachel Cliffe said the new coverage would deliver significant safety, social and economic benefits to those travelling through and working at the NPA airport. “The airport is a vital connection point, used for local charters from Weipa, Horn Island and the Torres Strait, as well as by the Royal Flying

Doctor Service and the Royal Australian Air Force,” Ms Cliffe said. “This small cell is a critical piece of infrastructure, helping to connect locals, tourists and workers in the Cape York community. Leichardt MP Warren Entsch said the new base station would support the region in reaching its potential. The Bamaga satellite small cell was jointly funded by the federal government, Queensland government and Telstra under the federal Mobile Black Spot Program.
