YES. OUR RATES ARE TOO HIGH DOMINIC MOBBS We have all recently received from the Cassowary Coast Regional Council (CCRC) our rates notice accompanied by a leaflet titled, “Your Rates Dollars: How They Work For You”. It is useful that Council provides this extra information, but how much of it is slanted to excuse our high level of rates? The leaflet includes sections implying that here on the Cassowary Coast we pay higher rates because we have a smaller rate base and population density than Cairns, Townsville and Brisbane, plus higher road maintenance. The message is that the high rates we pay are not the fault of our Council and the rates are

reasonable because there are mitigating circumstances. The problem, we are told, is that councils with lower populations and lower rate bases cannot achieve the lower rate levels of larger cities. The Council leaflet states, “Our rate base is smaller compared to other Councils, which is why we pay more for services and infrastructure.” On the face of it, this seems logical. But really how relevant are comparisons with major cities like Cairns and Brisbane? Would it not be more appropriate to compare CCRC with similar sized nearby and coastal based councils in NQ? CCIN took up the challenge and the results are revealing.

How do you value your independent newspaper?

Mail: PO Box 1100 TULLY QLD 4854

It is important for businesses to support each other. We are all going

through a difficult time in the Cassowary Coast. To be able to continue offering services, local businesses and community members need to support each other. Here at CCIN we have regular clients who support us all the time, and their support is invaluable for CCIN to continue to inform our local community of local news that affects all of us. Economic development is changing all the time and because of this, one week is up and the other is down. For the continued growth of the Cassowary Coast in this time of economic downturn we all need to acknowledge that we need each other. CCIN being an independent newspaper brings many benefits to the community because we don’t have a management team based in Sydney telling us what we can and cannot report on, and who can and can not advertise or work with us. Local content is valuable. Who is willing to report on our local Lions and Lionesses? Our Rotary or our Meals on Wheels? Who would cover our local bowls, golf, darts, fishing, tennis?

LOCAL AFFAIRS

YES, OUR RATES ARE TOO HIGH CONTINUED FROM PG1 TABLE 1 contains data These numbers are calculated for a residential property in the main town in each of the regions. To make the comparisons fair, CCIN used the median unimproved land values for each region (from the Qld. Valuer General’s Reports) and applied a standard water-use of 200kl pa. The population and council area figures come from the Regional profiles compiled by the Queensland Government’s Statisticians Office. Highlighted in chart 2 are comparative net rates and charges, plus population densities.

This chart clearly shows that all mid-size NQ Councils with lower population density than CCRC have lower rates and charges, some substantially lower. Our rates and charges are the highest of all the mid-size councils in NQ. Look particularly at a ratepayer in Ingham (Hinchinbrook). This area also has high rainfall and, while Hinchinbrook is not quite as wet as Cassowary Coast, they have had more severe flooding in recent years, causing much road damage. Hinchinbrook has about a third of our population and their population density is much lower, yet its rates and charges are a whopping $829 less than ours are. You would expect that a tiny region like Cook Shire with only 4,445 residents, or only 15% of our population, would be the most expensive of this group. Yet their bill is slightly lower than ours is. So much for the Council’s theory that rates are always higher in lower population density regions. In fact, apart from Cook Shire, an extreme case with very low population, all the other NQ

councils analysed and charted have annual rates and charges that are $421 to $1168 a year lower than ours are. The Council leaflet suggests the Cassowary Coast region has more roads, and especially unsealed roads, that are far more expensive to maintain than these other regions do. Is this true? Table 3 shows that assertion is entirely untrue. The amount of roads that Mareeba has to maintain is over 94% higher than Cassowary Coast, and Tablelands is 56% higher, with substantially more unsealed roads. When we consider the KMs of roads to be maintained per thousand residents, CCRC has the least burden. Mareeba certainly has a drier climate, but has the largest road maintenance load per thousand residents – more than twice the challenge of CCRC. CCRC, by having rates and charges at $829pa more than Hinchinbrook, is obtaining over $13million pa more revenue from ratepayers compared to what it would get from charging Hinchinbrook’s level of rates. A vast amount of that extra revenue collected goes on nonroads services. If roads are the dominating factor causing the differences, then Mareeba, Hinchinbrook and Tablelands should be the ones with the high rates. Well-known regional economist, Pete Faulkner of Conus Business Consulting, told CCIN, “It is tough for the Cassowary Coast Regional Council to close the gap. It has grown to that size over decades and it is not the making of one recent council. The cyclones in our region in recent years have had an impact and caused us to renew many assets. That adds to depreciation costs

so our depreciation is high compared to some councils. In rough terms our costs are split in thirds between depreciation, labour and services. The ability of any council to alter depreciation is limited, and you cannot change labour costs quickly.” CCIN agrees, addressing this large gap in our rates versus rates in nearby regions cannot happen quickly. Council recently agreed a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) with its workforce that locks in 2.5%pa increases, hence reducing labour charges would be difficult without cuts in employee numbers. So this gap will not be closed in one council term and will undoubtedly take several terms to fix. However, councils must not throw their hands in the air by peddling myths about population densities and road maintenance, nor claim rate levels cannot be changed; they can, by nibbling a little off each year. The next council will need our level of rates to be on its radar because it is economic ‘lead in our saddle bags’ for the region. People looking to move into the area are often alarmed when they see the rates bills, and for pensioners and single parents in particular it is nearly impossible to move here. And how do small businesses compete with other regions with such high rates? In this regard CCIN’s data analysis here has concentrated on residential rates and properties. A preliminary examination of commercial rates, however, also shows the gap between CCRC and other councils is even worse for these payers than for residential ratepayers. Could this Council have done more? They will point to the low average rate increases in the

last four years but nearly all councils, apart from a few exceptions (where they demerged), did the same in that period. And as CCIN will point out in a forthcoming article on this Council’s transparency record, their use of averages often covers up what is really going on. Consider Council’s media release regarding the 2017/18 budget where it boasted that the year’s rate rise of 1.65% was the “lowest since amalgamation.” What Council omitted to mention was this average hid a 5.2% increase in residential rates in the dollar, offset by a 19.2% fall for the primary production category. There are a few glaring examples where CCRC could save dollars without impacting services. The $1.5m spent suing residents and the associated waste of executive time over the past few years was/is unproductive and unnecessary; enough has been said and written about that. This Council changed its organization structure and created an executive team of eight reporting to the CEO. There were only four previously. CCRC added an ‘Executive Manager’, though most mid-sized councils do executive support work for their CEO via their governance department. That’s doubling up; CCRC now has both an Executive Manager/Deputy CEO plus Governance Co-ordinator/Manager and both are apparently on the Executive Team. An extra executive costs Council in the region of $200,000pa all up. Then look at this Council’s substantial expansion of the media/public relations department, now costing ratepayers around $400,000 pa. The previous Council functioned with just a single person in

media. We, at CCIN, see a constant stream of media releases from Council informing us of important events like ‘a cat on the Target building roof being saved.’ While information distribution needs have undoubtedly increased, do ratepayers really need to be paying for this type of trivia to be distributed? We also regularly hear councillors moaning about how their achievements are unrecognised. Does it surprise ratepayers that this Council appears, at this pre-election moment, to be frantically spending ratepayers’ funds telling us how good they are. Is this why “Organisational Support” has jumped from $2.04 to $5.26 for every dollar of our general rates? These three unnecessary spends alone; legal adventures, excessive executives and a bloated media department add up to a possible $0.8m pa in savings available, without cutting any services. Given every $400,000 is 1% of general rates revenue that’s a potential 2% rate reduction. That’s only nibbling away at the rates gap, but with 15,700 rateable properties, that’s still an average saving of over $50 per annual rates notice. Not a fortune but a handy start.

Innisfail Breast Cancer Support Group Bra Fitting Morning Tea MARIA GIRGENTI MORE than 12 ladies from across the region recently attended a free morning tea hosted by the Innisfail Breast Cancer Support Group to assist women who have had a mastectomy with the fitting of specialised bras and prostheses. The program is made possible with the assistance of Alison Skardon from Figgers Smithfield and Terrain Innisfail (who provide the group with free use of their facilities and a venue with disability access). Many of the ladies were accompanied by partners, family and friends who came along for moral support and also enjoyed a relaxing cuppa and the chance to mingle and speak with other women. On the day, McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurse Deirdre Duyvestyn and Queensland Health Breast Care Nurse Benedicte Houfflain from Cairns were also available for ladies to have a chat. Ladies in the Cassowary Coast have access to Duyvestyn and Houfflain, the two Breast Care Nurses who have an office and counselling room in Breast Screen building. These

nurses provide a free service of support and education for public and private patients who have been given a breast cancer diagnosis and their families. There are currently 135 McGrath Foundation Breast Care nurses in Australia and have started recruiting metastatic breast cancer nurses. More information can be found at www.mcgrathfoundation. com.au. These nurses provide advice to patients and their families, as well as coordinate patient care and look after ladies and men from Cardwell to Cape/Torres Strait Islands. At any one time, the three nurses can be looking after 300 patients per year who have been newly diagnosed in the Cairns catchment area, and monthly statistics are provided to McGrath Foundation and Queensland Health. These nurses support patients from the time to diagnosis and all the way through acute treatment stage for a period of up to two years. While breast care nurses are the centre point for patients, they can also refer patients to other services such as psychology, social workers, as well as

other multi-disciplinarian clinicians and are well supported by nursing staff in chemotherapy and radiation areas. "More ladies are realising the importance of breast screening every two years as a method of early detection, recognising that early intervention means higher survival rates. Statistics from McGrath Foundation show over 90% of people in Australia are survivors five years after diagnosis which is due to improvements in treatment, targeted therapies and research," said Duyvestyn. Any ladies with a family history of breast cancer are encouraged to start screening at the age of 40, while others will be invited from the electoral role to start screening when they turn 50. Referrals can be made by patients or family members and the three breast care nurses can be contacted by calling 4226 5000 or via email: cairns. bcns@health.gov.au. For further information on IBCSG and its services, please contact Zoe on 0419 270 026 or visit Innisfail Breast Cancer Support Group Facebook page.

Mrs Santa Vasta Celebrates her 106th Birthday SEAN DENT Santa Vasta’s son, Joe gets a grin on his face when he talks about his mum, but it’s at its widest when he recounts stories that demonstrate how tough she is. “When she was about to turn 99, we decided to have a birthday party for her because we thought she might not make it to 100, but here she is. Every year, she keeps showing us up,” he said. He reflects often on the challenges she’s faced her whole life. “In 1967, she got hit by a drunk driver and broke her back. I broke a leg in the same accident,

but she was in hospital for six months, and another three months of recovering at home. A lot of people would have given up. Not my mum.” In her late 90s, she again faced a huge challenge: this time, breast cancer. “The doctor told her the best course of action was to have them removed. She didn’t flinch. She just said, ‘Well, I’m not using them anymore.’ Then she just carried on with the battle against cancer till she won.” Santa was born on February 16, 1914 in Milo, Sicily – the second child of Alfio and Rosaria Giuffrida.

Her first tragedy was when her youngest brother went to fight in WWII. He never returned and was declared Missing in Action. “Losing her brother made a big impact on her life. She was heartbroken and talked about him for years. At one point I remember wanting to get a gun, but she said no guns,” Joe said. He believes that particular devastation was why she started a family so late in life. She married Giovanni Vasta in Italy in 1947 when she was 33 and gave birth to her first child the next year. The year after that, they came to Australia to cut cane, to

make some money, and to go back home one day. But they ended up staying in Silky Oak, although Santa did go back to Sicily twice, the last time in 2006 when she was 92 years old. Giovanni never got the chance to return to his homeland. Santa lost her second child, a daughter, at just two days old. She later had Joe and two more daughters. One of the reasons Santa gives for her longevity is her faith, her love of Italian food, and staying active. Joe told me that when they went to Italy together, even though she was 92, she insisted on walking up the stairs everywhere

because she hates escalators. It wasn’t she who got tired from the walking; it was Joe, who practically begged her: could they please take the escalator? It was during that trip that she visited the Vatican for the first time. It should be pointed out

that Santa and Giovanni never got a driving licence or drove a car. They walked everywhere their whole lives. So, of course she can outwalk Joe. In 1993, Santa lost Giovanni, the love of her life. This year Santa got another letter from Queen Eliz-

abeth and celebrated the milestone with her children, her 12 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. She currently lives at Mercy Place Westcourt in Cairns, which Joe says she loves. “They treat her so well there, like she’s family.”

Fashion Mystery Woman to Take Tully by Storm A fashion mystery is coming to visit Tully for a short-term engagement to offer the mature women of the region a new fashion experience. I met with the lady behind it this week, she is not releasing her name because it is all about the fashion. Her fashion collection will first appear to the women of Tully on March 5 at 8:30am at a pop-up shop in Banyan Plaza beside IGA. The pop-up shop will be there for a limited engagement of just five weeks, and the lady told me she is going to be recognised at that point since she’s pretty well-known in Tully. Together with friends, she is on a mission to return to our ladies a feeling of self-confidence, of style, of being a woman. “Twenty years ago in Tully, everyone dressed nicely for just walking down the street. Everyone had a new dress for the Tully Show every year. It was an exciting and glamourous time. Well, we want to bring that back.” They did give me a chance to check out the merchandise and see what makes it different—what makes it something that will draw

women to their pop-up shop. “The first thing is, these clothes are designed with the mature woman in mind, just like us. That means the cloth is cotton or linen, because at our age and in this climate, we want to feel comfortable in every way.” Practicality, though, is not the top priority. “What the ladies will find here are dresses, shirts, and pants steeped in simplicity, elegance, and style. Just as important, they’ll see clothes that are integratable, that work together and that will work with their existing accessories such as shoes, belts, and jewellery.” They showed us how one dress could look good on a 60-year-old woman, or a girl in her late teens just by what they wear with it. “Maybe the young girl wears a belt and high heels, whereas the mature woman accessorises it with subtle earrings.” They said it’s not necessary for the clients to be fashion experts. In fact, the owner most looks forward to using her and her friends’ decades of fashion experience to help teach clients new ideas. “We can walk them through

SPECIALS

various options, different things they can do with the clothes that can turn an outfit from something they can wear to the beach that morning into something they can wear later that night to a more formal occasion.” In fact, one of the things they most enjoy doing is helping men buy clothes for their wives or girlfriends. They showed me a dress and asked me if I considered it stylish or fashionable. To my untrained male eye, it looked not too unlike a sack you might lug coconuts around in. She then showed me what she could do with it, demonstrating to me that most men might just lack the women’s fashion gene, causing me to backtrack on my initial opinion. I could see it then. The owner together with friends has been planning this venture for a couple of years, and she is clearly very excited about it. “A big part of this is to keep the money they spend in the town. But the most exciting part is showing mature women, women like us, that they can still look elegant.” The mystery is going to

be short-lived because in a couple of weeks, the owner will be demonstrating her line of fashion to the women of the Cassowary Coast, and she is confident of two things: people will recognise her and her friends, and they will love the range of clothes she has brought to the region.

Mission Beach First Aid Program 22 February 2020 - Building Confidence in the Community

This year’s hot and humid summer season has seen the increase in the risk of many of the hidden dangers familiar to North Queensland. With stingers top of the list at the beach, snakes lurking in gardens and ticks in the scrub. Extreme humidity levels also increase the risk of dehydration, heat stroke and even drowning. Any of these situations could potentially trigger a serious health incident in someone close to you or someone in your care. Unfortunately, not too many people know how to respond quickly and effectively. Did you know, that providing CPR immediately after a sudden cardiac arrest can double or even triple a person’s chances of survival? Many cardiac arrest victims don’t receive CPR from a bystander because they don’t know how to or are not confident to step in. Over 76% of cardiac arrests occur in the home and are most likely witnessed or discovered by a family member.

When a person collapses – whether it be through an injury, a bite, sting or other health episode, every second counts. These moments are critical and could mean the difference between life and death. So, the Tully/Mission Beach Local Ambulance Committee in conjunction with Mission Beach Community Support Inc. have been conducting basic CPR awareness sessions to encourage more people within our community to confidently step in and help someone if a situation arises. The first session for 2020 was held on Saturday February22, 2020 at the Mission Beach State School and was well attended by a good cross section of the community, including several children. The session focused on CPR, when and how to apply it in an emergency situation and the differences between treating an adult, child or infant. They also learnt how to use a defibrillator and where they are locat-

ed across Mission Beach. An additional component of this program addressed other potential hazards specific to FNQ, including the treatment for stingers, snake bite, seizures, dehydration and burns. The next first aid courses in Mission Beach are the Accredited Apply First Aid Course, and provide CPR on Saturday March 21, both of which will be conducted by the QAS in conjunction with MBCS Inc. The CPR session runs from 8:30 – 10:30pm and the full First Aid course from 8:30 – 1:30pm. If you are interested in attending the accredited courses next month or would be interested in attending the next CPR Awareness session, please contact Jenny Potts on 0467 719 839 or Sheila Lawler on 0429 301 946 for more details.

Resolution Whitewash DOMINIC MOBBS Council Correspondent Our mayor and councillors cost ratepayers well over $600,000pa to be our watchdogs and examine on our behalf the reports by, and recommendations of, council officers. Sometimes CCIN wonders if ratepayers would be better off having lower rates and not worrying about councillors given the number of times reports and recommendations from officers are never queried, let alone rejected, or how often councillors have to be excused from meetings due to a conflict of interest. During the past 12 months CCIN cannot recall a single recommendation by staff being knocked back. You would hope that a report about the issue, “direct financial impact… would be significant” on Council would warrant at least some curiosity from councillors. “What would this significant financial impact be and why?”, you would imagine would be a reasonable opening query. But no, not a single question on the report contents by the

Mayor or any Councillor and the recommended resolution was quickly and unanimously passed. (Cr. Nolan and the CEO had absented themselves from the discussions.) No wonder CCRC has itself in a legal quagmire over defamation, criminal etc. and regulatory cases given the quality of scrutiny councillors appear to undertake and their lack of request for explanations. The background to this resolution is a report submitted in the ‘Governance & Environment’ Committee at the last Council meeting regarding two petitions tabled by a Mr Toogood plus 10 ratepayers in September and November 2019 in respect to the CEO and various court/legal matters. Agenda reports are supposed to be self-contained, so that a councillor, the public and media can read the report in its entirety and understand the rationale behind any recommendations in the report made by council officers. The report to councillors should be sufficiently detailed so that an informed decision can be made based solely

on the contents of the paper. This report failed to do this. It was so baffling, lacking in explanations, detail and transparency, it was impossible for any reader to follow. (CCIN readers are challenged to see for themselves by reading this paper on page 62 of the February 13, 2020 agenda). The report did not even list the original petitions’ requests. So, how councillors could even know what the recommendations actually referred to, given the petitions were several months ago, is puzzling. The paper claimed, “Consultation occurred with independent advisors.” However, the identity of these advisors, whether they were external or internal, exactly from whom they were independent was not revealed, and the actual advice was not even tabled. Was it even provided in writing? Who knows? No councillor enquired about it or requested a copy. The paper referred to a Council policy but did not specify what is was, and

no one asked. There were numerous perplexing items in this report including claims that Council cannot repeal resolutions that have already been acted upon, and that mediation “is most appropriately initiated by the relevant Court”. Why you cannot revoke when the action is part of an ongoing process, like funding legal action, was not explained. And even those with limited legal knowledge would know that mediation does not require the Courts to be involved at all if the two parties agree. Not a single Councillor or the Mayor queried any of the report’s claims. A complete whitewash by any standard. Inadequate examination by councillors leads to dubious outcomes. Why bother having meetings open to the public if the information to be presented is so inadequate? Why do we need a mayor and councillors if they are simply going to rubberstamp management reports?

JENNY’S Tropical Gardening, Feb 27, 2020. I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful rain we have been having....how very welcome it is for our gardens. This is such a good time to begin preparations for our vegetable gardens so the soil is well mulched and fertilised and weed-free, ready for the great growing season! Home-grown always tastes great and it is also a great way to exercise and very good for the mind, body and soul! I like to mix in some dolomite before planting in my patch and other fertilisers that provide a range of nutrients for producing healthy, nutritious vegetables. Seasol is always a much-needed fertiliser for our gardens also so ‘Don’t forget the Seasol!’ A nice layer of mulch of your choice will help to keep the patch weed-free and will also keep the soil cool for the plants roots. I like to start my vegetable seedlings early and I’ve already planted lots of seeds in coolite boxes, which will soon to ready to transfer to the garden. It is best to use a good seed-raising mix, especially for the smaller seeds. Many other seeds can be directly sown into the garden. Always rotate your vegetables so that you have plants such as tomatoes, corn, zucchini, squash and others that produce the vegetables above the ground where leafy vegetables were last grown. This will assist in preventing transference of pests and diseases establishing and will also prevent the soil becoming exhausted by having the same crop continually taking the same nutrients from it. Put any stakes in place before planting, so the tender roots of the plants will not be broken as they would if the plants were already in. Our shrubs and trees have really enjoyed the rains they have been receiving, which means we need to prune more often. Any pruned branches that are not being used for making new plants can be added to the compost heap, except for larger ones from trees. The showers of rain are the perfect time to add granular fertiliser to the garden and have them watered in....saves some time for the busy gardeners! The big downside to the wet season is that weeds are growing prolifically and we need to try to keep on top of their eradication to assist in preventing the spread of their seeds. I notice ixoras are really flowering well at the moment. These shrubs grow so well and produce many flowers that add beautiful colour to the garden. Ixoras do well in full sun or part-shade and they are available in a large range of colours and come in dwarf forms and taller shrubs.

Butterflies absolutely love the pollen from their flowers and these will add interest and colour to the garden also. They can be propagated by cuttings in Summer or seed in Spring, or they can be marcotted. Remove spent flowerheads to assist the plants to produce more, unless you are hoping to collect seeds. I thought I’d add some photos of a few fantastic garden statues I have seen through the years...How lifelike are they! Frangipani trees are a huge favourite of mine and I am often asked what can be sprayed on them to prevent rust forming on the leaves. This rust is always worse in our hot, wet summers and I’ve always been told to remove any infected leaves, rake up any that have fallen on the ground as well and burn them or put ito a sealed bag in the bin. I have just purchased another product from work and I am trialling it...I shall let you all know how it goes. Until next month, Happy gardening,

They are both scheduled to appear at Innisfail Magistrates Court on March 2. EXPECTED STOLEN PROPERTY FOUND The items pictured below were located after a number of break and enters occurred within the Innisfail area between February 4 and February 17. Police would like to return these items to the rightful own-

ers. Proof of ownership will be required before the items are released.

If any of these items look familiar to you, please contact police and quote the reference number QP2000262772 February 24 YOUTHS CHARGED, INNISFAIL Five Innisfail boys have been charged following multiple alleged stealing incidents over the weekend. The boys; two 13-yearolds, two 14-year-olds and one 15-year-old, allegedly entered yards on Enright Street and Middle Avenue in the South

Johnstone area between Saturday night and Sunday morning. It will be alleged that the boys stole bicycles and a scooter from the addresses. The boys have also allegedly attempted to enter a Meyer Avenue address. Five boys will be dealt with according to the provisions of the Youth Justice Act 1992. ASSAULT POLICE, INNISFAIL At about 9pm on Friday, February 21, police attended a disturbance at Anzac Park. It will be alleged that two men, who were known to each other, were involved in a physical altercation. As police have attempted to separate the men, a number of people have allegedly obstructed the officers. During this time, a boy has allegedly armed himself with a large stick and threatened to strike the officers. He was disarmed by another person and arrested by officers. While being placed into the police vehicle, he has allegedly kicked and smashed a window of the police car, he has continued to struggle with police.

He is scheduled to appear at the Innisfail Magistrates Court on March 2. A 23-year-old Parramatta Park man was charged with commit public and obstruct police. He is scheduled to appear at the Innisfail Magistrates Court March 9. LIGHT UP AND LIVE With recent rainfall across the Cassowary Coast it is a timely reminder for motorists to be mindful of their surroundings. Police are urging drivers to turn on their lights practically during wet weather, to make themselves more visible on the road to other drivers. Never drive a vehicle with just the side or parking lights on and there is no need to drive in wet weather during the day with high beams on. Some vehicles blend in with the road surface at a distance, so if you have your lights on it makes it easier for other drivers to see you. Driving in wet weather can be very dangerous and you

should slow down and drive to the conditions. Double the distance between you and the car in front; in normal conditions it is recommended that the safe following distance is two seconds. In adverse weather you should at least double this to four seconds. You should prepare and maintain your vehicle to make sure you will always be as safe as possible when driving in wet conditions. Some of the things you can do it to check you have good tread (at least 1.5mm deep across the whole tyre width), making sure all of your vehicle’s lights are operational and effective, and ensuring your windscreen and light lenses are clean. Always avoid driving through flood waters. Don’t ignore flood road signs and remember, IF IT’S FLOODED – FORGET IT! February 26 UNLAWFUL POSSESSION OF FIREARMS, DEERAL Police have charged a local man after conducting an emergent search at a residence in Deeral on Tuesday afternoon (February 25). It will be alleged that police located the man at an address

on the Bruce Highway at about 2pm in possession of eight unsecured firearms, scattered around the house in various locations. It will also be alleged that police located two boxes of blasting cap explosives and a taser in the man’s possession. A 63-year-old Deeral man was charged with possessing unsecured firearms, possessing unregistered firearms and unlawful possession of explosives. He is expected to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on March 13. Police will also allege that a 16-year-old boy was located at the address in possession of cannabis and drug utensils.

Is Secret ‘Unity Alliance’ Running Again in 2020 Election? Short Answer, Probably SEAN DENT IN the 2016 election, the Unity Alliance attempted a clean sweep of a Mayor and five of the six council seats. John Kremastos got elected Mayor, and Councillors Rick Taylor, Jeff Baines, and Ben Heath also got elected. They then went on to appoint a CEO, James Gott who had at least assisted the Unity Alliance during the campaign. Some people believed him to be its de facto campaign manager. After some personal troubles, Rick Taylor, who had been appointed Deputy Mayor, stepped down from that position, and Wayne Kimberley

stepped into it, leading many to see him as aligned with the Unity Alliance. One former Councillor recently said that the Unity Alliance made certain Councillors jobs easier because they never had to research issues: they were simply told how they would vote. Whether it was reality or perception, the general public came to hate the idea that one group had so much power. Mark Nolan, who was not a member of the Unity Alliance, and who often disagreed with Council decisions, appeared to have been running around with a target on his back, leading to 30

complaints lodged against him by Council during a 20-month period. “There had been no complaints or allegations about me in my previous 15 years as a councillor,” said Nolan. The wind has clearly shifted, and in 2020, being part of an alliance is no longer considered a great idea. So now, everyone who is running is claiming to be independent and denying any talk of a shadow alliance, but no one in the know believes it. There have been rumours of large gatherings featuring the usual suspects, plus a few new ones believed to be aligning together in 2020. There’s nothing inher-

ently wrong with thinking candidate X would make a great mayor. Baines came out and said he was behind Kremastos when he announced his candidacy. Heath doesn’t need to say it – it’s obvious whenever I see them together. Kimberley has already started attacking Nolan as being a “safe politician” who does very little and he’s defending this council and mayor. I haven’t heard much noise out of the Nicholas Pervan camp at all, but everyone says he will be part of the shadow alliance team and that he did quite a bit of work in 2016 to help get certain Unity Alliance members

elected. A lot of people voted for the Unity team last time when is wasn’t in the shadows because a) they believed the promises of the Unity Alliance and b) because the Unity Alliance had a lot of money behind it. Now, many voters are questioning why there was a lot of money behind it and whether the donors got anything in return. Division 3 is interesting as there are currently now only two candidates, Hilary Watson and Trudy Tschui, both of whom have said they will not be supporting any alliance. If that’s the case, I would look for a late surprise

candidate, who will also probably also claim total independence. For whatever reason, nobody is openly admitting that there is a unity alliance (lower case) this time around, but everyone I’ve spoken to says it is there. Most of them are unwilling at this point to put a target on their back by saying it out loud. Kylie Farinelli is not one of those. “If the community believes that after Unity Team Councillors voted as a team for four years, that it will just stop come March 28th, then they are kidding themselves. I have seen with my own eyes a meeting between the current Unity-led

Mayor and individuals, who advised the team prior to election and during their term, take place within the last month.” On the date of this edition of CCIN, Thursday Feb 27, everyone is welcome to attend Butler’s Bar in Hotel Tully at 6:00pm to Meet the Candidates (all three Mayoral candidates plus Division 2 candidates). Please note the change in venue if you previously heard it was going to be held at the Tigers Leagues Club. Also note that late Tuesday night, Peter Reed officially threw his hat in the ring for Councillor in Division 2, and will be there answering questions.

doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re qualified, but he claimed last week that Kimberley invited him to run for councillor, which made me curious because there simply isn’t room for another candidate in the Kremastos/Kimberley clan in Division 6. Was Kimberley was just yanking Dyason’s chain? So, I did some digging and then went out to Currajah, where Dyason lives with his wife, to see for myself. I found out that Dyason worked in finance and insurance for 44 years, including several years as manager at a Westpac branch. He’s

done retail lending, small business lending, agribusiness lending, residential insurance, commercial insurance, and farm insurance. He also holds a full real estate licence, has been a Justice of the Peace and a Commissioner for declarations for over 40 years. He attained a diploma of business, a diploma of agribusiness and a cert 4 in real estate. He also ran for council several years back and got about 23% of the vote. It wasn’t enough to win, but he did take enough votes from the incumbent to get him booted from office. In short, he’s not a

crackpot. He’s an intelligent man who has enough experience to form an opinion about the current council, and obviously Kimberley feels the same way or he wouldn’t have engaged with Dyason. I asked Dyason for a response to Kimberley’s letter to the editor. I read it to him and Dyason chuckled throughout and said, “Fair play to him. He’s defending his point of view. That’s democracy.” Although Dyason feels he is too old to run for council, he does have some ideas about what he’d like to see from the next Council, and a lot of

his ideas show a level of human compassion that we hope to see from the next group. For example, he’d like to see pet licence fees reduced to one dollar for old aged pensioners and handicapped pensioners. “Often, their pet is their main companion, and we should make it easier for them.” He’d like to see a major review of the dust strip policy, which he feels currently disadvantages farmers who may have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars through the years simply to get their rubbish picked up, and they still have dirt

roads. He’s going to ask that Council re-invigorates the Sugar Festival Parade a.k.a. the Harvest Festival to run in conjunction with the Feast of the Senses. He said this used to be a glorious event and it could be again. He would like a film theatre back in the region, and thinks it would be a great way to get people together socially, both young and old. “Babinda theatre still draws big crowds every weekend,” he said. His most ambitious idea? A walking trek from Coquette Point to

Cr Kimberley Squares off With Citizen Matt Dyason SEAN DENT

WITH the election just 30 days away as of today’s edition of CCIN, the gloves are coming off. In this week’s paper, Wayne Kimberley dives into the fray in the letter section. Kimberley is well known around these parts as Councillor, Deputy Mayor and owner of one of the most beautiful examples of a country Australian pub, the El Arish Tavern. His opponent this time around is Matt Dyason, who is less well-known, but writes a mean letter. Of course, anyone can send a letter to the editor. It

Etty Bay. “These treks are becoming big business

everywhere,”

he

said. He feels this is one of the most beautiful parts of the world, and one that people would love to see, and also that the Indigenous people of our region would jump at the chance to be involved as tour guides. He sees it as a low-cost investment that will deliver a big return. Oh yes, he’s also a current member of Reconciliation Australia.

RURAL REPORT

Knuth: Dialysis Machines Sorely Needed in Tully Hospital SEAN DENT A couple of weeks ago, Abe Muriata Chairman of the people of the Jumbun community in Murray Upper, spoke of the need for a dialysis machine in Tully Hospital. Many indigenous people endure years of dialysis as their bodies don’t tolerate alcohol and western foods, and because they are as a race generally deemed unsuitable for kidney transplants. This treatment often involves visits to Innisfail Hospital three days a week. It turns out they aren’t the only ones who rely on dialysis. Shane Knuth has been in touch with many people in the area who would also benefit from a local option. “I have constituents who are travelling

thousands of kilometres a week to Innisfail for dialysis. This needs a discussion at the state and federal level, and I’m happy to take a petition to parliament to push for it.” Meanwhile, Innisfail Hospital, which currently has eight dialysis chairs with capacity to serve more than its current 24 patients, is planning to increase its service to 32 patients by the end of 2020. Christine Boric, Treasurer for the Tully Hospital Foundation, agreed with Knuth regarding the need to provide the service locally in Tully. She believes it’s not the cost of the machine that’s the stumbling block for providing dialysis at Tully Hospital. “You need to have trained staff at the hospital who can ad-

minister it.” Teresa Millwood, upcoming candidate for councillor in Division 2, which includes Tully, said that the hospital has the physical room to provide dialysis treatment, but also stressed that it’s not as simple as just buying a machine and getting staff. She also feels that those in need of dialysis in Tully already feel blessed that they have a lifesaving treatment just 45 minutes away in Innisfail. Our research suggests they’d feel more blessed if they didn’t have to travel the extra 90 minutes three days a week. The problem is not just the travelling time. The procedure itself can take several hours. Gabi Plumm is running for councillor in Division

ber of patients in the area needing dialysis is under-reported and would exceed 10 patients. “I believe the number is higher than 10, and the number will increase rather than drop. What happens is the number is artificially lowered because people needing medical attention get frustrated and leave the rural areas to go live in the big cities. I am more than happy to assist with a support group to find the real number,” he said. Muriata agrees and off the top of his head, he can count several people who need a local dialysis option, including members of his community who moved to Innisfail to be closer to the hospital there. “I wish they could come home and get treatment closer. I’d

1, which means she would be representing a large section of the indigenous community. It also means representing residents in Cardwell. Cardwell dialysis patients go to Ingham for treatment, but the trip to Tully would be shorter. The renal dialysis report that Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service recently prepared states that it does not plan to establish a satellite renal dialysis centre at Tully Hospital because it does not feel there is a demand for it. To be considered a clinically safe and viable option as well as being able to attract specialist staffing, there would need to be around 10-12 patients needing dialysis three times a week. Knuth feels the num-

like to have them back in the community,” he said. Boric is going to get started on organising a petition, which Knuth is enthusiastic about putting before Parliament as soon as possible. With the Queensland state election coming up in October, he feels he has leverage to get things done now, especially for an issue like this. The most informed voters, the older members of the population, likely have family members or friends in need of dialysis. Home dialysis is an alternative that Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service proposed, and Muriata said he’d be interested in learning more about that option. Patients are offered the choice of home dialysis

if their condition is stable enough and if they have a carer who is willing to be trained to assist them with the process. Training and support would be provided to all patients and their carers wanting to undergo dialysis at home. The machinery for home dialysis would be provided at no cost to patients. The problem is not just the travelling time. The procedure itself can take several hours. Haemodialysis can also be done at a dialysis clinic or centre. This entails following a regular schedule and going to the clinic for up to six hours, three times every week. Then there are the people who live in Jumbun or Cardwell, who can add on another hour of driving time.

Saturday 29 February will be the Dalrymple Park Riverbank Clean Up as a Clean Up Australia Day activity (site # 13424). Participants are asked to register at the Johnstone River Community Gardens from 9am from where the collection will progress downstream along Dalrymple Park until 11.30am to be back at the Gardens for a complimentary sausage sizzle at 12noon. Sunday 1 March will

Clean Up Australia Weekend celebrate our clean community with a free Clean Up Australia Day Picnic whichwill showcase the importance of removing and reducing the amount of waste material entering our environment. Collected material from the Saturday Clean Up will be separated and catalogued with the data passed on to Clean up Australia and Tangaroa Blue for their records. In attendance will be Cassowary Coast Regional Council staff and the MAMS Group to share handy information about the Container Exchange Scheme, fertilizer and banana bag recycling and the buyback shops at the Council refuse stations. FNQ Community Exchange – Tableland LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) will be sharing information about their cashless community exchange through a bartering system for goods and/or services.

with an appeal to Australians to step up on Sunday 1 March, to reduce the amount of waste in the environment. Clean Up Australia Chairman Pip Kiernan said Australia creates 2.5 million tonnes of plastic waste each year. Only 12% of this is recycled with the rest ending up in our parks, roadsides, bush, waterways, oceans or in landfill as rubbish. “We are calling on Australians to step up to clean up, and join us on Sunday 1 March to collect as much of this waste as we can before it causes harm,” Ms Kiernan said. Clean Up Australia Day is the nation's largest community-based mobilisation event, and last year more than 680,000 volunteers removed over 15,000 ute loads of rubbish from the 6,901 registered locations across the country. “It’s our 30th anniversary in 2020, to celebrate that milestone we’d love to see 700,000 Australians

cleaning up at 8,000 sites nationally on March 1.” Clean Up Australia is more than just volunteers picking up rubbish. The charity works with community, business, schools and governments all year round to reduce waste and fix waste problems“For 30 years now we’ve been cleaning up Australia. But Australians are creating more waste than ever, so we need more help. If people are unable to join a Clean Up on March 1, they can step up by donating $20 to help us all year round,” Ms Kiernan said.

KENNEDY MP, Bob Katter has taken his fight to protect Australia from foreign corporations to the floor of the Federal Parliament. The Katter’s Australian Party Member introduced a Bill today to protect Australia from the foreign corporate colonisation of rural and regional areas (The Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020) - the second time Mr Katter has introduced the Bill in five years. Mr Katter said he didn’t know how other MPs would be able to look at their grandchildren and great grandchildren in the eye and tell them that they sold off their nation. “On behalf of the Australian people we say no more foreign ownership,” Mr Katter said. “Around 30 per cent of the people I meet tell me they are shocked and horrified that the Government is selling Australia off and out.” The Bill states a foreign person cannot acquire a 10 per cent or greater interest in Australian land, water, or other assets that are of strategic economic or defence significance. “A two thirds majority in both houses of parliament must approve foreign acquisitions, and the acquisition will be for no

more than 45 percent of the asset,” Mr Katter said. 13.4 per cent of Australia’s agricultural land is foreign owned according to the ATO’s latest statistics from July 2018. And foreign agricultural ownership is as high as 25 per cent in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Similarly with Australia’s water assets, the ATO data shows 10.4 per cent is owned by foreign interests. “The Ord stage two and stage three were given completely to China, despite more than 30 Australians applying for the water,” Mr Katter said. “Our most strategic northern deep water Port in Darwin was effectively sold off as well. “It was also the most strategic Port for the Americans in the South Pacific. Is there anything this Government won’t sell?” The Bill also calls for the establishment of a Foreign Ownership Assessment Board (FOAB) to determine whether an asset is of strategic economic or defence importance. Mr Katter said the board would be chosen by a majority of the Senate of Australia and any determination of the FOAB would be reviewable by an appeals tribunal.

Tully Tigers Looking Good in Preseason Training SEAN DENT When the smell of footie is in the February Showgrounds air, it means the Tully Tigers are preparing for the season. With a new coach and after a winless season, no effort is being spared. About 40 players turned up on Tuesday night and newly appointed coach, Paul Ketchell, didn’t crack a smile once. It’s all business, and this team has a lot to prove. The theme of the night, Ketchell said in between expletives as he urged them to keep going, was endurance. “Next week, we’ll do teamwork,” he said. Maybe teamwork wasn’t the right word

though because the camaraderie is clearly there. One example was the “no man left behind” drill where they were given a task to complete. Run from here to there, drop onto you’re your belly, do a push-up, run to the next post, drop to your belly. And then, they waited, sometimes 10-15 seconds until the last person completed the task. It meant that everyone completed every task and everyone started the next one as a team. Ketchell wasn’t the only one barking commands. “Body language,” shouted one of the more experienced players at one point. He was telling his teammates to look the

part of the strong, tough footie player. Tired players finishing a drill and slumping or scowling was discoura g e d because of the effect it would have on o t h e r. Vi c t o ry goes to the t e a m t h a t stands tall together in spite of what they may be feeling. This kind of training is not just about getting the

Page 16 Cassowary Coast Independent News, Thursday, February 27 , 2020

Tigers back on track this year. Ketchell seems to have a 10-year plan. Younger players, some

as young as 15 years old, have been attending the training sessions. They won’t be on the A-Grade

team, obviously, but they get to train with players they look up to. It’s a huge part of their development. “ Te n d a y s to go,” Ketche l l shouted repeatedly, reminding t h e m t h a t t h e y want to fit and p r e pared when t h e y start their trial games. For some of them, it’s a warning: if they aren’t ready by then, they

risk being left out of the team. Ketchell said earlier this year that no one’s place is safe. No one! Prove yourself worthy of the A-Grade and you’ll be in the team. That’s the criteria. After 40 minutes of intense endurance training, they players looked exhausted. That’s good because it means they are responding to the new coach. It’s also good because that was when they started the skills workouts. One of the most effective ways of making the jump from bad team to good team is to give yourself maximum chances in the final 5-10 minutes of a game when everyone on both sides are tired. It’s not just

a matter of having the energy to run, you want to have the mental energy to execute, to make those crisp passes that get a winger past his weary defender. I’m not going to presume that one training session is predictive of how well the Tigers will do. And let’s be fair, if a team that went winless last season were to win even half their games this year, that would be a huge jump. But this prediction I’ll make. By the end of this season, no team will talk about Tully as a pleasant place to come and play.

Greg Shannon ¬Vale Ron Tait, Qld 196064 It was sad to hear news of the recent passing of one of the best known and respected Queensland rugby league players from the past, The Cassowary Coast’s Ron Tait. A 14-match Queensland player from 1960 to 1964, Ron played mainly in the

Then & Now

centres or five eight and was part of an era when Qld tasted some success prior to the 1980s. He was also one of the unique group of players who played all of their careers in the Queensland jersey from country rugby league. Born and bred in Innisfail, Ron made his first grade

debut for his home town in 1954 before representing Far North Qld against the 1955 touring French side. He represented North Qld in 1956 before transferring to the Toowoomba rugby league in 1957 and stayed in the garden city for 3 seasons, adding selection in the Toowoomba Bulimba Cup side to his growing

resume. It was in 1960 though, after transferring to the Rockhamtpon rugby league that his representative career really took off with selection in the Queensland squad. He made his Queensland debut in the opening game of the 1960 interstate series, which NSW won narrowly 21-20. In the second match of that’s series Ron scored two tries to help secure a resounding Queensland 17-12 victory. He returned to Innisfail for the 1961 season and was appointed captain coach of the towns Foley shield side

and continued to represent Queensland over the next 4 seasons as an Innisfail based player. It was during this time that he formed a unique centre partnership for both North Queensland and Queensland with Cairns based centre Alan Gil (who had also played in Toowoomba), and the cry of “TaitGil” became well known throughout the state. With Innisfail, Ron tasted great success in the Foley shield competition, winning the coveted shield in 1964 and 1968. He also represented North Qld against many visiting in-

ternational sides including the 1962 English, and 1964 French sides. After retiring as a player he continued to coach locally until the early 1980s and always supported his beloved Innisfail side. In 2010, Ron was one of the many former Queensland players to make the trek to Brisbane for the unveiling of the Wall of honour for Queensland players (1908-87) and he was also part of the 2017 Innisfail 100-year celebrations

Tully Playmakers Go Head-To-Head in NRL Preseason Match in Cairns MARIA GIRGENTI FORMER Tully Tigers juniors Thomas Flegler from Brisbane Broncos and Jake Clifford from North Queensland Cowboys were pitted against each other in an epic battle for ‘King of the North’ title in the Queensland derby NRL preseason trial match on Saturday at Barlow Park, Cairns for the first time. Flegler, who played with Clifford in Tully Tigers junior ranks, made his NRL debut for Brisbane against Melbourne Storm in Round 1 of 2019, while Clifford made his debut for Cowboys in Round 19 clash against St George

Illawarra Dragons in July 2018. Despite torrential rain, thousands of fans packed all parts of Barlow Park to witness a mouth-watering clash between two sides which boasted a number of big guns of the game. It was a tight tussle between both sides as they fought for ball control and defence in wet and slippery conditions, but Cowboys had the edge with the ball to notch up a thrilling 18 - 16 victory over their Queensland rivals. Another highlight for diehard footy Cowboys fans was the debut of Valentine Holmes who played in fullback position for just under 30 minutes in the

first half. Cowboys lock and fan favourite Jason Taumalolo was also impressive in the first 20 minutes of the match before being rested on the bench. North Queensland posted first points when recruit Connelly Lemuelu crossed the line in the opening minutes of the game to lead by 4 - 0 after a wayward conversion. Teeming rain proved challenging and there was little separating the two sides as Brisbane Broncos led by 10 - 4 at half time after two tries to centre Jesse Arthars. A try by Cowboys prop Emery Pere evened up the scores before Bris-

bane struck back with a four-pointer to Anthony Milford after a strong run by winger Herbie Farnworth which put them out to a 16 - 10 lead. A double by rookie Reuben Cotter late in the second half saw the Cowboys snatch a two-point victory over Broncos on a raindrenched field. SCORECARD North Queensland Cowboys 18 (Reuben Cotter 2, Connelly Lemeulu, Tom Gilbert tries, Jake Clifford 1 goal) defeated Brisbane Broncos 16 (Jesse Arthars 2, Anthony Milford tries, Kotoni Staggs, Jamayne Isaako goals).

Tigers News with Shane Muriata As the season draws closer to the blockbuster Round 1 game that is the North Queensland Cowboys and the Brisbane Broncos, it is worth mentioning the epic encounters that usually follow these two teams every time they meet. How can I go past the first live game I saw at the now-homeless Dairy Farmers Stadium (or Stockland Stadium) as it was called back in the day, when Allan Langer and co won every contest between the two Qld cousins from 1995 – 2004. The Cows just did not have the team to beat a pack of jellybeans, let alone the Bronx, but on one fateful night in 2004, the stars aligned like no night before. The Cows had qualified against all odds for their first ever NRL Finals Series, when they knocked off the more fancied and eventual Premiers the Bulldogs in a cracker. With both Qld teams scheduled to play in Sydney in a qualifying final, the powers to be at Castle Hill Headquarters had one request to big brother Brisbane, could

we move the game to Townsville? In the spirit of sibling rivalry, Coach Bennett happily answered yes, and with that, the greatest Australian Sporting rivalry was born. Fans camped out for days waiting for tickets, and with a full house behind them, The sleeping giant of the north finally woke and eliminated Brisbane from the title race, winning 100. What would follow in the next 20 years would leave every other club in the NRL jealous, as the Broncos and Cowboys provided more highlight reel than Hannah Montana could ever give. There was the golden point in Townsville when Morgan sent Bronx packing, the Milford field goal, and who could ever forget the 2015 GF. So many memories have lit up this famous dance between two siblings fighting for the number one spot in the Sunshine state. If all the past games, upsets, field goals and golden points are anything to go by, then the Friday the 13th NRL R1 at the new Stadium in Townsville will be in for something special for

sure. Oh, and if anyone is feeling sorry for this tragic Bronx supporter, hook a brother up with a ticket, because these things are selling like Jonny Cakes. One of the most anticipated games that many are looking forward to this Rugby League season in 2020 will be the Tully Tigers Women’s side that will compete in the Cairns District Rugby League competition, and if the sound of Coach Aaron Tongys voice is anything to go by, then bring it on I say. I caught up with coach Tongy and long-time living rugby league mum and royalty, Alia Ivey, summing up what’s to come for their girls: “It’s going to be an exciting time for women’s Footy. Our girls have been training hard and will hit the ground running come kick off.” With that being said, Tongy was very impressed with how well they have been preparing for the season ahead. “I’ve tried to build a knowledge base of the game, so that when it comes time, we will be playing a brand of football that is easier for them to play. We already have a foundation of players that are affiliated with the North Queensland Cowboys Women’s Rugby League side.

with a squad of players that have already been earmarked as future NRL players. They’re such a great bunch of players, but also an exceptional bunch of women.” Good luck girls for the season. Just want to give a big thank you on behalf of the Muriata family to Gary from Tender Cuts Butchers for your act of kindness. I was absolutely blown away by your gift, and as you might already know, my late uncle was very fond of all things Ford motoring. If you haven’t already seen it around town, Gary has one of the most beautiful muscle cars. It makes Dominic Toretto blush. Some days you see a side of people that makes you not sure of human beings, but your gesture restores my faith in people, and will last me a lifetime. I must admit I went home with a bit of a tear in my eye, such was the impact you made. So to you Gary Galleta, I am proud to call you a mate any day of the week, and I wish nothing but the best for you and your family forever and a little more I say. Cheers Gary.

Trent Mann snuck into some form and shot a one over par for 38 points just to get pipped at the post by Dan Carter who had another impressive round of 39 points!

The weather hasn’t been that kind over the last week or so. Rain washing out play on Saturday, & our Juniors playing in torrential rain at the Peninsula Golf Tryouts at the Cairns Golf Club. During this time of year, an extra hand or two is always welcome on Thursdays to help our 3G team to mow the course. So if you have a spare hour or two, give Des a call and he’ll sort it out for you.

Thursday, Ladies play a Stableford, register at 9.00am followed by Sporters, register by 12.45pm. Saturday is a Stableford. Register by 10.30am.

At least we got to play two out of three comps this week, with TUESDAY’s field playing a Stableford event. The winner was Nigel Piner on 35, with Mattie Smith r/up on 34 – Mattie also went on to win NTP on #4/13, Marie Pavan taking the Ladies on #5/14 and Jan Benn the approach shot

on #7/16. THURSDAY’s Sporters played a Stroke on the Front 9 with results as follows: Winner – John McKenzie on 30, second [on a c/back] Steve Wells and third Lisa Spiegler, both on 31. Least Putts went to Jake Perkins with 11. NTP results: #1 – Luke Borgner, #2 and #3 Rod Rackley, #4 Jake Per-

kins and #7 Luke Borgner. The big trophies on #5, #6 and #9 this week were not taken!! Due to the fact Jim Grulke’s Trophy day on Saturday was a washout, this Saturday hopefully we get to play his sponsorship day. TIMES: 12.00 rego – 12.30 tee off

GONE FISHING REPORT Unfortunately, I have had no reports of boats travelling to the main reefs over the weekend. The Hinchinbrook region was very popular, with reports coming in of some very good captures of both Fingermark and Grunter. With the larger tides I would imagine these catches were from shallow water or taken during the smaller run experienced either side of the tide change. Very few boats fished the islands however I did hear reports of one regular that managed to catch some nice

Queen fish and Golden Trevally by jigging soft plastics and micro jigs. The Barra captures in the estuaries have been fairly consistent, not huge numbers but certainly enough fish to make the trip worthwhile. Anglers fishing for Grunter both in the estuaries and along the mangroves that line the length of the Hinchinbrook channel have been catching some nice Barra. Successful anglers have mentioned that fresh slabs of mullet or herring have been the secret on both the Grunter and Barra. I have also heard some fairly solid rumours of

King Salmon being caught along the Cardwell beachfront. Shore based anglers could do a lot worse than booking accommodation in Cardwell and spending their weekend fishing the foreshore. The Cardwell economy would be very grateful. Mud crabs have been around in reasonable numbers and hopefully the recent rain will flush them out of their holes and get them on the move. As expected, the recent rain has resulted in some good Barra being caught at the mouth of the drains and creeks running into our coastal streams. Rivers such as the Liverpool, Maria, Tully and Murray have all started to fish well. We still

need a lot more rain for consistent good fishing, but it seems that a lot of Barra are already up in the freshwater. I have also heard some reports of Barra, Tarpon and Sooty Grunter being caught in some of the local lagoons. While I struggled in the freshwater over the weekend, some of the local young guns posted some great photos of Sooty Grunter and Jungle Perch on the Tackle World Tully face book and Instagram sites. At this early stage of the week, the forecast for this weekend is for 10-to-15 knots on Saturday rising to 15-to-20 knots on Sunday. There is a modest run in the tide on Saturday but very little on Sunday. Hopefully, the heavy rain should have

moved on. Either side of the early morning and late afternoon low tides should be ideal to fish for Barra and Jacks in the estuaries especially on Saturday. Sunday’s tides are very neap. I would look for Barra holding in the deeper holes in the estuaries. Another option would be to fish the deeper holes around the islands or in the Hinchinbrook region for a Fingermark: the trick here is to find sheltered water. Fishing for barra at the mouth of the feeder creeks and drains in the freshwater reaches of the coastal creeks will also be successful. Good Fishing Roly Newton Tackle World Tully
