Young artist aims to raise $5000 for support service Edna celebrates her 100th birthday Umina resident Ms Edna Taylor celebrated her 100th birthday on October 20. “I’ve had such a wonderful life and can’t believe I made it to 100,” she said. The daughter of a World War I Anzac, Ms Taylor lives in the Jack Aldous House at Peninsula Village. “I was lucky enough to share my birthday with all my family and friends from Jack Aldous House as well as the staff at the village,” Ms Taylor said. Ms Taylor joins eight other

centenarians at the village: Ms Beatrice Abrahams, Ms Norma Petersen, Ms Frances Dawson, Mr George Jackson, Ms Dorothy Callister, Mr Gordon Briggs, Ms Joy Lewis and Ms Phyliss Hill. Peninsula Villages chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said he believed that maintaining an environment of inclusion, independence and support was crucial to longevity in full-time care. “There are not many places where you’ll find nine centenarians living at the same address.

“We’re in the middle of a process where we are changing our care methodologies and we think it’s going to really improve the experience here at Peninsula Villages,” he said. “People are living longer and moving into residential aged care at a later age which means we are adapting our services and our models of care to ensure we can cater for our community of seniors now and long into the future.” SOURCE: Website, 24 Oct 2019 Shane Neaves, Peninsula Villages

Two marine rescues near Lion Island Marine Rescue Central Coast conducted two rescues off Lion Island on October 31. A yacht and a runabout were rescued in quick succession late on the Thursday afternoon. At around 3:30pm, a 26ft trailer sailer called for assistance after losing steering and power in Broken Bay. The conditions were choppy with a stiff north-easterly blowing the yacht close to the rocks at Lion Island. Their small auxiliary motor could do little in the conditions, but they were able to hoist a jury rig while waiting for rescue crew to arrive. The rescue service boat Central Coast 21, skippered by Mr Mark Sheehan and crewed by Mr Alan Harvey, raced to the scene taking the vessel in tow for the long haul back to Lions Park. Just after rounding the western side of the island another call came in from a runabout which was on the northern side, having also lost power and drifting dangerously towards the rocks. Watch officer Mr Duncan Coles

contacted Marine Rescue Terry Hills and Broken Bay Water Police to see if any other vessels were in the area. With no quick solution available, it was decided that Central Coast 21 would take the first vessel to anchor in the safety of Iron Ladder and then return to assist the runabout. As Central Coast 21 raced back

to the runabout, the vessel was able to flag down a passing boat which took it in tow. Central Coast 21 shadowed the tow in the choppy conditions before returning to the yacht and continuing with its tow to Lions Park. SOURCE: Media release, 3 Nov 2019 Mitch Giles, Central Coast Marine Rescue

An 11-year-old Point Clare girl who has benefited from a support service in Woy Woy for siblings of people with special needs is aiming to raise $5000 to help fund the program. Courtney Cottle is big sister to Harmoni, who has autism. Growing up as part of her sister’s support network, Courtney has faced challenges other children do not have to face. She has attended the siblings program offered by Coastwide Therapy Services in Woy Woy, and has raised money previously for the service. The program connects siblings of special needs children with one another, providing them the opportunity to talk about some of the issues they face at home. It also focuses on teaching these children coping mechanisms and other strategies for dealing with feelings of isolation, stress and resentment under the guidance of a psychologist. “The sibling program helped me cope with some big changes in my life after Harmoni was diagnosed, and when I learnt it was stopping, I knew I wanted to help it get back up and running,” Courtney said. “We are all going through things and it’s important that we all lift each other up, not bring each other down.” Art has always been a passion of Courtney’s and she’s now putting her creativity towards a cause as she prepares to hold a fundraising exhibition at The Entrance Gallery. Courtney’s exhibition, “The Girl”, is an expanded version an exhibition which was held in Point Clare in April. It will feature new paintings and sculptural pieces and will act as a multi-media installation where guests are given a sneak peek into the life of ‘the girl’. “My art is an expression of a time when I felt unsupported and I think many people can relate to that feeling,” Courtney said.

Courtney is hoping to raise $5000 from the exhibition to donate to Coastwide to directly fund the program and has already raised just under $2000 from the first exhibition. As part of the exhibition, Courtney and her siblings have also created over 300 rocks which will be hidden around the Coast in the lead up to opening night. The rocks have been decorated with different artworks and have information about ‘the girl’ on them. “Anyone that finds a rock should bring it to the exhibition. “It will help you discover the girl’s secret,” Courtney said. The girl’s secret is a hidden phrase that guests will be challenged to guess after viewing the exhibition. Those who guess successfully will have a chance at winning prizes. The exhibition will open at The Entrance Gallery at The Entrance Community Centre from 7pm on November 22 and will run until December 21.

Peninsula should speak up about planning, says Smith The council adopted the ward Deputy mayor Cr Jane Smith has urged the Peninsula approach at its October 8 meeting, community to have a say accepting the motion from Cr about planning for the future Smith. It agreed to hold community of the area. Cr Smith said it was generally agreed that renewal was needed on the Peninsula but the community needed a strong voice about where they wanted things such as open space, commercial, industrial and residential areas and transport infrastructure needs. “I think that the Peninsula is an area that does have constraints,’’ she said, citing the two roads going in and going out of the area. Cr Smith was successful in getting Central Coast Council to adopt a ward-based approach to the Local Strategic Planning Statement that by law Council must adopt by July next year. The statement, when adopted, will become the 20-year land use planning vision for the local government area. The statement would aim to highlight where council wants such things as open space, residential areas and commercial and industrial areas.

engagement meetings in each ward to discuss the statement which will become the primary strategic tool to express the desired future of an area. She said the statement would need to look at the capacity for growth in the areas and whether the roads were a limiting factor. She said the statement would give the high level direction for all five wards and the Comprehensive Local Environment Plan would provide the rules. Cr Smith said it was her personal view that council needed to work on the Statement before making any dramatic changes to the Local Environment Plan. With the decision to adopt the ward approach, council’s chief executive officer Mr Gary Murphy will provide a recommended process by which the ward councillors are given an opportunity to participate in the preparation of the provisions of those parts of the

statement that deal with their ward. Mr Murphy will provide a monthly councillor planning workshop so interested councillors could be provided with information and updates on planning matters such as the statement, strategic planning processes, development proposals and other relevant matters. Cr Smith’s motion included documentation that quoted the NSW Department of Planning which said the government included provisions to give recently amalgamated councils the option

to address matters by ward in their first planning statement. “This approach would help ensure the strategic priorities and local character of the former councils would be adequately considered in the development of the new council’s strategic vision,’’ the Department of Planning website stated. “This would be particularly relevant while new councils are developing a new consolidated Local Environment Plan for the amalgamated area.” Council is working on a new consolidated plan for the Coast as well as a comprehensive plan. In July, when she was still mayor, Cr Smith put forward a mayoral minute to the council in an attempt to get the council staff to concentrate on work on the new comprehensive local environment plan rather than consolidating the plans from the two former Wyong and Gosford plans. Her mayoral minute was not adopted but was amended to councillors holding a workshop to discuss the implications of the proposed consolidated plan, to

consider public submissions, and to discuss the process for the comprehensive plan, including the community engagement process. That workshop has taken place but the outcomes have not been made public. The decision taken at the July 22 meeting did not include the tabling of any of the discussions. The draft consolidated local environment plan will be presented to the council, possibly before the end of the year. The council’s draft urban spatial plan, currently out on public exhibition until October 24, is a framework for the Local Strategic Planning Statement. At its July 22 meeting, the councillors noted that this in effect commenced the process of developing a comprehensive local environment plan and the Development Control Plan for the coast.

220,000 solar panels to be installed on Delta Electricity’s coal ash dam

ews of a power partnership in a $75M solar project on Delta Electricity’s coal ash dam, comes only two weeks after the announcement of a Parliamentary Inquiry into rehabilitation of ash dams at coal fired power stations. One of the Inquiry’s criteria is to investigate site remediation and re-purposing of the land, and this Delta Electricity solar project is a good example of repurposing, according to the NSW Department of Environment and Planning. Coal ash from the Vales Point Power Station has been dumped in a huge dam area off Ruttleys Rd since the power station opened in the 1960s. Over the years the ash dam has been capped with soil and other landfill as well as replanting with native grasses. The solar field will be on about 80ha of the rehabilitated portion of the 524ha ash dam, within the 1,730ha Vales Point power station landholding. The $75M project will create 100 construction jobs and five full-time ongoing positions. Community feedback about the project has been generally positive as a good use of the rehabilitated areas of the ash dam. An evaluation report

Vales Point solar farm will have an estimated life of 30 years when it would either be rejuvenated or decommissioned. Solar projects are highly reversible after decommissioning, with all above-ground infrastructure able to be removed. Over the next 18 years, Vales Point will be one of four NSW coal-fired power stations to close, and this transition to solar energy will add to NSW’s five major renewable power projects, one of which is the largest solar farm in Australia. Enernet Global President, Paul Matthews, said Vales Point solar farm would pave the way for his company to deliver similar plants in other challenging sites across Australia, including other ash dam sites, mining tailings dams and landfill sites.

New Woy Woy wharf plans announced Central Coast Council has announced its plans to redevelop Woy Woy wharf. The $5.32 million redevelopment is the largest wharf project undertaken by Council. Its design features a floating pontoon to adapt to most tide and weather conditions. Council director Mr Boris Bolgoff said the new wharf would deliver substantial benefits for Woy Woy and the Central Coast. “Accessibility for community members who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices has been a priority throughout the design process,” he said. The new wharf would include a wheelchair lifting facility on the pontoon for recreational boat users. It would also include solar lighting, a covered gangway and passenger shelter, decking made from recycled plastic and a dedicated fishing wharf. The pathway along part of The

Boulevarde and Brisbane Water Dr would be widened and include a cantilevered section. Landscaping would include established salt-water-tolerant trees and benches would be provided with mobile phone charging capability. Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said: “The new Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf will deliver far reaching benefits for the Woy Woy community, residents who use ferry services to commute and the broader Central Coast community. “Thanks to a significant funding injection form the NSW Government, Council will deliver a wharf that will become a major attraction for locals and tourists alike.” The project will receive $3.99 million from the NSW Government’s Regional Communities Development Fund The council reported Deputy Premier Mr John Barilaro as saying: “The rejuvenation of the

rundown Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf will help make the Woy Woy waterfront precinct accessible for all, while taking car pressure off local streets and ensuring local residents can keep enjoying a tranquil beach lifestyle.” Ferry services will use the adjacent commercial wharf during the construction period and will continue as scheduled. Residents can have their say on the new Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf through a consultation running from Monday, October 28, to Monday, December 2. Feedback can be provided by attending drop-in information sessions on Thursday, November 21 at 10am-2pm or 4-7.30pm at the Country Women’s Association hall, opposite the wharf in The Boulevarde, Woy Woy or by visiting the council website yourvoiceourcoast.com/Lets-TalkWoy-Woy SOURCE: Media release, 25 Oct 2019 Boris Bolgoff, Central Coast Council

Allegations of corruption found to be unwarranted F

ormer NSW Police Minister and Minister for the Central Coast, Michael Gallacher, is holding out for an apology from the State Government, after allegations of corruption which forced him out of Parliament in 2017 have been found to have been unwarranted. Gallacher, who lives at Terrigal, said he had been through “five years of personal hell” since Counsel Assisting an Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) investigation in 2014, Geoffrey Watson, implied, while

McClintock’s 2018 letter said that he had a “very, very considerable degree of sympathy” for Gallacher and felt that what happened to him was “wrong and unfair”, comments which he reinforced on October 18. He also confirmed that no finding of corrupt conduct had been made against Gallacher. The upshot is that allegations

No evidence was produced, but the accusation alone was enough to see Gallacher dumped from the Liberal Party front bench following an illustrious career and forced to serve the next three years as a cross bencher, until he resigned from Parliament in 2017.

Although ICAC was restructured in 2015 after the High Court found that it had been exceeding its jurisdiction, concerns remain about the process. “I used to believe in what ICAC was doing and I still believe you need to investigate, but it needs to be done within the confines of the law,” Gallacher said. “I no longer believe in public hearings while there are no protections around people having their reputations destroyed despite there being no findings of inappropriate behaviour at the end.” Source: Parliament of NSW website, Oct 25 Interview, Mike Gallacher, Oct 25 Reporter: Terry Collins

he timely release of a State Government Inquiry, revealing adverse effects of mining in the Sydney drinking water catchment, should add significant clout to the Central Coast Drinking Water Catchments Protection Bill 2019, introduced by NSW Greens. Central Coast Greens MLC, Abigail Boyd, introduced the Bill to the NSW Parliament Upper House in October and it is due to be debated on November 21. “If passed, this Bill will protect our drinking water here on the Central Coast and prevent the Wallarah 2 coal mine from proceeding,” she said. Boyd, also the NSW Greens spokesperson on Mining, Coal and Coal Seam Gas, said the Bill would protect the Central Coast drinking water by imposing a moratorium on mining and mining related activities in the following catchments: Mangrove Mountain Creek dam and weir, Mooney Mooney dam, Ourimbah Creek, Porters Creek, Wyong River as well as land where surface water drains to those places. “The Wallarah 2 coal mine will consume gigalitres of our drinking water supply

A yacht and a runabout were rescued in quick succession late on the Thursday afternoon. At around 3:30pm, a 26ft trailer sailer called for assistance after losing steering and power in Broken Bay. The conditions were choppy with a stiff north-easterly blowing the yacht close to the rocks at Lion Island. Their small auxiliary motor could do little in the conditions, but they were able to hoist a jury rig while waiting for rescue crew to arrive. The rescue service boat Central Coast 21, skippered by Mr Mark Sheehan and crewed by Mr Alan Harvey, raced to the scene taking the vessel in tow for the long haul back to Lions Park. Just after rounding the western side of the island another call came in from a runabout which was on the northern side, having also lost power and drifting dangerously towards the rocks. Watch officer Mr Duncan Coles

contacted Marine Rescue Terry Hills and Broken Bay Water Police to see if any other vessels were in the area. With no quick solution available, it was decided that Central Coast 21 would take the first vessel to anchor in the safety of Iron Ladder and then return to assist the runabout. As Central Coast 21 raced back to the runabout, the vessel was

able to flag down a passing boat which took it in tow. Central Coast 21 shadowed the tow in the choppy conditions before returning to the yacht and continuing with its tow to Lions Park. SOURCE: Media release, 3 Nov 2019 Mitch Giles, Central Coast Marine Rescue

Harmoni, who has autism. Growing up as part of her sister’s support network, Courtney has faced challenges other children do not have to face. She has attended the siblings program offered by Coastwide Therapy Services in Woy Woy, and has raised money previously for the service. The program connects siblings of special needs children with one another, providing them the opportunity to talk about some of the issues they face at home. It also focuses on teaching these children coping mechanisms and other strategies for dealing with feelings of isolation, stress and resentment under the guidance of a psychologist. “The sibling program helped me cope with some big changes in my life after Harmoni was diagnosed, and when I learnt it was stopping, I knew I wanted to help it get back up and running,” Courtney said. “We are all going through things and it’s important that we all lift each other up, not bring each other down.” Art has always been a passion of Courtney’s and she’s now putting her creativity towards a cause as she prepares to hold a fundraising exhibition at The Entrance Gallery. Courtney’s exhibition, “The Girl”, is an expanded version an exhibition which was held in Point Clare in April. It will feature new paintings and sculptural pieces and will act as a multi-media installation where guests are given a sneak peek into the life of ‘the girl’. “My art is an expression of a time when I felt unsupported and I think many people can relate to that feeling,” Courtney said.

/centralcoastnewspapers Courtney is hoping to raise $5000 from the exhibition to donate to Coastwide to directly fund the program and has already raised just under $2000 from the first exhibition. As part of the exhibition, Courtney and her siblings have also created over 300 rocks which will be hidden around the Coast in the lead up to opening night. The rocks have been decorated with different artworks and have information about ‘the girl’ on them. “Anyone that finds a rock should bring it to the exhibition. “It will help you discover the girl’s secret,” Courtney said. The girl’s secret is a hidden phrase that guests will be challenged to guess after viewing the exhibition. Those who guess successfully will have a chance at winning prizes. The exhibition will open at The Entrance Gallery at The Entrance Community Centre from 7pm on November 22 and will run until December 21.

Tawny Frogmouth population under threat, say carers The Tawny Frogmouth population of Pearl Beach is under threat, with 10 deaths in the last year, according to a pair of local wildlife carers. Wildlife Arc carers Mr Michael Dahlstrom and Ms Augusta Miller say the most recent deaths were a healthy breeding pair killed by a domestic cat in late October. The carers, who specialise in Tawny Frogmouths, are now caring for a surviving chick, which Ms Miller named Spoon after it spooned itself into her hand when it came into their care. The orphaned female suffered extensive wounds following the attack, but the couple are hopeful she will make a full recovery. According to Mr Dahlstrom, the initial prognosis was poor with only Ms Miller believing Spoon would pull through. “It wasn’t looking good when she first came to us. “The bacteria in cat saliva is toxic to birds and she had been bitten multiple times, so I didn’t have much hope,” he said. But Ms Miller spent a week administering around the clock care and a course of antibiotics to the chick and, while she isn’t completely out of the woods, Spoon’s future looks bright. They said Tawny Frogmouths were threatened by domestic pets, collisions with cars, poisoning and habitat loss.

Mr Dahlstrom said Pearl Beach’s population in particular had an extremely high mortality rate with the carers now concerned that releasing Tawny’s back into the area could be a death sentence, with the decision already made to release Spoon elsewhere when the bird is able to fend for herself. “For Pearl Beach, car collisions

are a major problem. “Tawny’s get struck by cars while hunting. “They get disoriented by headlights and then don’t react in time to avoid getting hit,” Mr Dahlstrom said. Tawny’s on the ground don’t fare any better. “A Tawny on the ground will

rely on its natural camouflage as its defence (they bear a striking resemblance to tree bark), but if they’re on the road that won’t help them,” Mr Dahlstrom said. Mr Dahlstrom said the birds also suffered from secondary poisoning as a result of snail and rodent poison. “If you’re using either of those

poisons, you’re killing birds,” he said. Domestic cats were also notoriously problematic for native wildlife around Pearl Beach. “As a wildlife carer it is really quite horrifying having to clean up after someone’s cat or dog has just decimated a native species,” he said. Mr Dahlstrom also noted that the recent push to have koalas introduced to Pearl Beach could be disastrous given the number of cats left unchecked. Mr Dahlstrom said the other big issue facing the birds was the well-meaning people that separate parents from fledglings. “We have almost a dozen Tawny chicks in our care at the moment and only three of them actually needed care, the rest were just fledglings that had fallen from the nest or failed their first flight,” he said. According to Mr Dahlstrom, delivering these birds to vets was actually doing more harm than good. “The best place for a Tawny chick is with mum and dad. “If a fledgling is on the ground, its parents are nearby.” SOURCE: Social media, 29 Oct 2019 Interview (Dilon Luke) and photos, 6 Nov 2019 Michael Dahlstrom, Wildlife Arc

Heritage study being prepared for Woy Woy A heritage study for Woy Woy is being prepared by Central Coast Council to review existing heritage items and to include any new items nominated by the community and professional heritage experts. Heritage items represent the places and landscapes that a community values, that tell stories about our history and that help

define our local character and identity. A description of the proposed heritage study on Council’s website said there were 17 heritage items in the Woy Woy area, identified in Schedule 5 of the Gosford Local Environmental Plan, and there was one State-listed item, being the Woy Woy railway tunnel. Local heritage items included Noonan’s and Mrs Wilson’s shops, on Blackwall Rd and Railway St

respectively, the Bayview Hotel as well as the fire station and residence and the former council chambers. There was one local archaeological heritage site, being the brick wharf adjacent the reserve at the eastern end of Brickwharf Rd. The website stated that all nominations received would be reviewed by Council’s heritage officer and an independent

heritage consultant who would also be conducting the heritage study. It said that, following further community consultation, a final list of recommended potential heritage items will be determined at a Council meeting. An item or site listed as being of heritage significance would require development consent for any works, alterations, additions or demolition, it said. Council offered a free heritage

advisory service as well as a heritage grants scheme for financial assistance for heritage projects up to $5000 per annum. Council’s website yourvoiceourcoast.com has an interactive map and a survey and new nominations can be made until December 2.

One more week to comment on roundabout plans Peninsula residents have just one more week to have their say on the design plans for the $7M upgrade to the Maitland Bay Dr and Picnic Pde intersection at Ettalong Beach. This section of Maitland Bay Dr is used by about 19,000 vehicles a day, according to Roads and Maritime Services figures, and the intersection provides links between Ettalong Beach, Woy Woy and the suburbs on the eastern side of Rip Bridge, including Daleys Point and St Huberts Island. The Review of Environmental Factors and concept design is on

public display for community input and submissions close at 5pm on Monday, November 18. The documents are available at Woy Woy and Umina libraries or online at rms.work/ MaitlandBayDrive The Review, prepared by Beca Pty Ltd and Roads and Maritime Services, is a planning and assessment report that sets out the proposal, its potential environmental and social impacts and proposed mitigation measures. It states that “development consent from Council is not required”. “Roads and Maritime is the determining authority for the

proposal.” There are five options. A standard roundabout is the preferred one because of its higher safety level, a smaller footprint as it reduced the amount of property acquisition and environmental impact, but still allows use by all types of vehicles including semitrailers and emergency vehicles. About 230sqm of Ettalong Oval would have to be relinquished for the intersection upgrade. Proposed improvements include a raised concrete roundabout and medians, new right and left turns into Kitchener Park car park from Maitland Bay Dr but only a left turn on the way out, on-road lanes for

cyclists, and new shared pathway to connect to existing footpath on the eastern side of Picnic Pde. The Review stated there would be no disturbance to Blackwall Mountain or trees on the northern side of Maitland Bay Dr. Another of the five options is “do nothing”. Peninsula Chamber of Commerce President, Matthew Wales, said the local business community was pleased to see the project moving forward. “This is an important intersection which forms the gateway to the Ettalong Beach village centre,” he said. “The intersection upgrade

will also complement new development in Ettalong Beach such as the recently completed Atlantis residential apartments and the proposed boutique 83room hotel in Memorial Ave, both of which will strengthen the local economy.” Subject to approval, construction is anticipated to start in the middle of next year and take about 12 months to complete.

Trust asks about use of endangered bushland money Central Coast Council will be asked if the $225,000 developer contribution from the owner of the Hillview St nursing home in Woy Woy must be used on the site which is home to one of the last stands of the endangered Umina Coastal Sandplain Woodland. The Protection of the Environment Trust management committee asked council to clarify whether the money could be used for other localities in that area with the endangered ecological community. The committee met on August 6 and asked a Council unit manager to clarify the issue. The report of the meeting showed the money was first incorrectly put in to the council general fund and was only transferred to the Committee account on February 28. “Advice is being sought from Finance as to what processes are being put in place to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future,” the report said. It also asked for clarification of the tax deductibility of donations to the trust. The committee also asked for slides from a presentation to be distributed and links to

Councillors accepted without debate the staff recommendation on October 28 to refuse the proposal because it had no strategic merit. The application from Wales and Associates, on behalf of owners KHMS Corporation and A Steliou, said the proposed development would increase the maximum building height to 15 metres across all three sites 302 to 308 Ocean View Rd, on the corner of Ferry Rd, Ettalong Beach. The current residential zone allows a maximum building height of 8.5 metres. Council staff reported that a two-storey dwelling had recently been constructed on 308 Ocean View Rd and the current residential zone was appropriate for the site. Shop-top housing is a

permissible land use in the area and, therefore, a change in zone was not required to achieve a mixed use development, the report said. The submitted development plans showed the proposal included childcare, gym and games room within the ground floor commercial area. The Council report said a market economic assessment (MDC Property, December 2018) submitted by the applicant did not provide sufficient evidence to support increasing commercial floorspace in the area, instead justifying the zone change entirely on the supply of additional housing. Council staff said the proposed increase in height and floor space ratio would allow a development that was out of character with surrounding development and, therefore, would have a negative impact on the Ettalong Beach area.

Dredging program ‘complete’, says Crouch The current program of six months of dredging of the Ettalong Channel is complete, according to Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch He said 22,000 cubic metres of sand had been removed from shoals in Ettalong’s channel, across a 30m width and a 2.5m depth. “About 10,000 cubic metres of dredged sand has been placed on Ocean Beach to improve the condition of the beach and counter the impacts of coastal erosion,” he said. “This latest dredging work has taken place in three locations upstream of Half Tide Rocks, adjacent Lobster Beach, to intercept a sand shoal encroaching on the channel, and adjacent Little Box Head. “The channel needs occasional dredging because of its dynamic nature with shifting sand creating shoals that threaten boating access.” Mr Crouch said the NSW Government and Central Coast Council each committed $1.225M in 2018 as part of Phase 5 of the Rescuing Our Waterways program. “Central Coast Council will

now continue to monitor the condition of Ettalong Channel and undertake further dredging, using $1.45M in remaining funds under this Rescuing Our Waterways partnership. “Keeping Ettalong Channel safe and accessible to recreational and commercial vessels requires repeated dredging. “We know that there is no such thing as a one-off fix. “Council has a long-term dredging strategy for this local waterway and I encourage them to ensure it remains in an appropriate condition,” Mr Crouch said. Peninsula Waterways Committee chairman Mr Mike

Allsop said he was pleased with the dredging works. “This was long overdue when commenced last year, and was subject to disgraceful wrangling between Central Coast Council and the State Government while the community suffered,” Mr Allsop said. “Access for ferry services, deeper keel leisure craft and commercial vessels was restored about 12 months ago, and we were pleased to see a continuation of works to secure the channel and at the same time contribute sand spoil for beach nourishment. “However, we do feel two primary issues remain,” Mr Allsop

said. “Firstly, while the main problem at Little Box Head was resolved, the channel itself around Lobster Beach is still too narrow with tight turns making it difficult for vessels to pass in opposite directions. “This needs to be widened a bit further toward the west and the red markers moved accordingly to allow safe passage, especially under a running tide. “Secondly, we have had no indication from Central Coast Council as to what maintenance arrangements will apply to the channel now that the State Government has spent its share of the funds.

“How will future maintenance or emergency works be funded and resourced? “The community will be in uproar if we see a repeat of the 2018 debacle. “We are disappointed to see the dredge being stood down while some further work would actually complete the job. “We would agree that there is probably no case for a permanent dredge if the channel is profiled correctly and if either council or the State could ensure diligent oversight of the channel and speedy deployment of appropriate equipment for maintenance purposes and emergencies. “However, there has been stark silence on this,” Mr Allsop said. Central Coast Council was contacted by this newspaper for information about Council’s ongoing maintenance plans but there was no response to our inquiries before publication.

Partly-restored ferry towed to Blackwall The owner of a partlyrestored timber ferry had his vessel towed to Blackwall following a breakdown in the Brisbane Water on October 28. “While on patrol, Marine Rescue boat Central Coast 21 was dispatched to just north of the Rip Bridge to a partly restored timber ferry which had broken down,”

said Marine Rescue Central Coast public relations officer Mr Mitch Giles. “On arrival the crew, consisting of Peter Alderton, Andrew Mckellar, Bob Knowles and Doug Fitzgerald, found the vessel at anchor with its punt tender alongside and overturned. “The wind was gusting strongly at the time making manoeuvring difficult,” Mr Giles said.

“The first task was to take over the tender and to right it for delivery to Blackwall ramp. “Initial attempts to tow the tender proved difficult as the hull shape made it dive underwater when towed. “Central Coast 22 crewed by Ted Leeson, Dave Randell and Bob Gilbody were nearby and tasked to assist. “Due to the location of the post

moorings at Blackwall and the strong winds, navigating the ferry to the mooring proved difficult due to the strong gusty winds and the narrow channel. “The tender with its outboard attached was eventually righted and delivered to the ramp and the persons on board the ferry were delivered to the jetty safely,” Mr Giles said. As Central Coast 21 was

Council approves five two-storey units at Ettalong

Construction of five twostorey units at Ettalong was approved at Central Coast’s Council meeting on October 8. The three-bedroom units, with single garages, will be built on two separate lots totalling 1,159sqm, at 5-7 Bangalow St between Broken Bay Rd and Tenalga Ave, less than 60m from the Ettalong Beach foreshore. Unit one and two will face Bangalow St and the other three units will be accessed off Tenalga Ave, via the road reserve laneway at the rear of the property. A Council report said the application had been amended once during the assessment process in response to issues raised during community consultation and following initial assessment by Council officers. Community opposition came about mainly because of the use of the grassed laneway as future vehicular access. Submissions opposing the project stated that currently it was being used by surrounding residents as a safe play area for

Library renovation children and safe access to the beachfront. A council report said that the laneway was Council road reserve with sewer and stormwater infrastructure and as such the development of a road was acceptable for this purpose and that there would be no significant impact on traffic in the surrounding area. Another submission said the grassed laneway was habitat to local frogs, blue tongue lizards and duck communities and, at night, a protective corridor for brush and ringtail possums. However, Council’s ecologist

reported that neither the site nor the laneway contained any native vegetation or had biodiversity value. The amended plans also dealt with concerns about overshadowing and privacy by building setbacks and vegetation screening. Applicant Knight-Mapleton Design Partners, for the owner Heisei Pty Ltd, estimates the project at $1M.

Community input sought for flood study Community input for the Empire Bay Floodplain Risk Management Study and

Plan will close on Friday, November 16. Central Coast Council is updating 2010 flood studies and looking at ways to manage flooding problems identified then for the suburbs of Empire Bay and Bensville. The studies found a range of issues would could affect more than 2000 properties including flooding of private properties, roads and public spaces caused by creek and estuary flooding during large rainfall events and/or ocean storms. A range of options is being considered to manage flooding and its consequences, including drainage upgrades and easements, foreshore barriers, raising roads, property filling, planning and development controls, community awareness programs or evacuation procedures. Council will be identifying potential options with the input from the community and will then assess the options and identify what action Council, the SES and the community can undertake to improve flood risk.

Gosford council chambers’ security costs to be tabled

Marquart opposes water tank scheme Cr Troy Marquart, a ward councillor for the Peninsula, has opposed a move aimed at encouraging residents to collect water for domestic consumption. Central Coast Council has decided to look into the feasibility of installing water tanks at discounted rates for pensioners and possibly other low income groups across the region, following a successful motion from Cr Kyle MacGregor at its October 28 meeting. Chief executive Mr Gary Murphy has been asked to provide a report to Council within six months. It will consider options such as a temporary reduction in residents’ rates should they chose to install a water tank or water saving mechanisms on their property or to look at Council bulk buying and installing tanks for residents at a reasonable fee. Cr Marquart said councils should not get involved in bulk buying tanks.

The move was aimed at encouraging residents to capture and collect water for domestic consumption, reducing demand on the Council’s water supply. The report will outline the potential budgetary impact on Council and suggest other options for reducing the economic burden on low income residents wishing to install water tanks or other water saving measures. The only councillors to vote against the move were Greg Best, Troy Marquart and Rebecca Gale Collins. Cr MacGregor said the program should be targeted at those who would benefit the most. “This program is not unusual for our region with both former councils offering different programs during the millennial drought,” he said.

The cost of the upgrading of security at Central Coast Council’s Gosford chambers should be tabled at the council’s next meeting on November 11 after questions from Cr Troy Marquart, a ward councillor for the Peninsula, at the October 28 meeting. The October meeting was the first held at the Gosford chambers after councilors voted last November to audit the safety of the Gosford chambers. At that meeting, now-mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said she would no longer tolerate heckling by the gallery at Gosford and that she didn’t feel safe in that chamber. At that same meeting, Cr Chris Holstein, another ward councillor

for the Peninsula, said he was surprised people felt unsafe at Gosford as they were sitting ducks at the Wyong chambers. Cr Marquart said he didn’t think there was much difference between the two chambers. Almost 12 months’ later, after missing 10 meetings at Gosford, the councillors were not impressed with the changes to the Gosford chamber, making fun of the new gate that separated the councillors from the public in the gallery. The public gallery which had been separated from the councillors by a railing was now separated by a metre-wide walkway and a second railing. Cr Marquart said he wanted to know how much money was spent getting the room to the state it was

in now. He was speaking during a debate on how many meetings the councillors should hold at Gosford to make up for the 10 missed meetings. The councillors voted to hold all the council meetings at Gosford until the first meeting of February next year and then alternate between Gosford and Wyong chambers. Some councillors felt the meetings should be held at Gosford until May next year to make up for the ones missed but mayor Cr Lisa Matthews used her casting vote to defeat that motion.

Funding available for safety projects Applications to fund community safety projects making can now be made through the Federal Government’s Safer Communities Fund, according to Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy

Wicks. She said local groups and organisations could apply under the current funding round, which provided finance to address crime and anti-social behaviour through the implementation of crime prevention and security initiatives such as CCTV and lighting.

Central Coast Council applied under previous rounds of the Fund and received $47,000 which went towards the installation of 21 CCTV cameras at community facilities including at Woy Woy and Umina. SOURCE: Media release, 4 Nov 2019 Lucy Wicks, Member for Robertson

Dark Corner carpark upgrade is completed The Dark Corner carpark at Patonga has been upgraded. The upgrade included resurfacing works, an increase in the number of parking spaces, new line markings for trailer parking and the installation of new furniture around the adjoining reserve. Central Coast mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said she was pleased that the Council partnered with the NSW Government to deliver better access to the existing boat ramp. “Thanks to funding from the NSW Government, we have been able to improve boating access and recreational facilities on

the Hawkesbury River, which is popular with Patonga residents and visitors alike,” Cr Matthews said. The works commenced in May this year, with Transport for NSW providing $295,000 towards the construction of the new carpark including 15 new car-boat trailer spaces, disabled parking spaces and a boat rigging area. The funding also provided new directional signage. SOURCE: Media release, 1 Nov 2019 Emily Rundle, Roads and Maritime Services NSW

Pecuniary or financial interests register will no longer be on council website Central Coast councillors have decided that their privacy is an “overriding public interest reason” why their pecuniary or financial interests register should not go on the Council website for public consumption.

Instead, Council will clarify and promote the role of its internal ombudsman. Councillors voted in July to establish an integrity and ethical standards unit to investigate and resolve complaints, with the objective of ensuring council processes were open, transparent and held to a high ethical standard. However, the committee reported to the Council’s October 28 meeting, stating that there was no need to establish an ethical standards unit, as the proposed functions were already addressed by existing structures. Instead, it recommended that Council should promote its internal ombudsman to the public.

Deputy mayor Cr Jane Smith, who put forward the original motion in July when she was mayor, said she did not particularly like where this latest report was going but she saw it as a first step. Council voted to develop a Governance Dashboard, as well as clarifying and promoting the role of its Internal Ombudsman. A dedicated web page describing the Internal Ombudsman’s role and how the community can interact with them will be developed, as well as a Charter to clearly describe the role and function and the types of complaints that are investigated. Council’s annual report will include a report from the ombudsman. All the recommendations are to be in place by the end of 2019 and will be reviewed by mid next year so that a report can be provided to council to determine if they have achieved their desired outcome.

News Council Pecuniary interests register not to go on website proposal Central Coast Council has decided that their privacy is an “overriding public interest leads reason” why their pecuniary or financial interests register to call on should not go on the Council website for public Federal consumption. Government Local Government NSW will call on the Federal Government to consult with local councils and the community about the 5G network rollouts, after a proposal was put to its annual conference by Central Coast Council.

Both deputy mayor Cr Jane Smith and Cr Kyle MacGregor spoke, saying the main issue was around the lack of control over the planning issues. In a note to the conference, council said the technology’s promise of lightning fast speeds meant the 5G networks needed five times the amount of equipment required for 3G and 4G mobile networks delivered through a network of small cells placed closer to homes and businesses. “This means they are being placed on top of power poles and other council-owned infrastructure,” the note said. “Councils and communities are not being consulted on the placement of these cells and should be as part of the planning process.”

Council staff propose grant for Ducks Council staff have recommended that Peninsula Ducks Softball Club be granted $5000 for playing and training equipment in the August round of the Community Support Grant Program

Central Coast Council will vote at its meeting tonight (November 11) whether or not to make the grant. The program helps groups to deliver activities which require a small amount of funding and/or in-kind support through access to Council services. The program is open year-round for $5000 per project per financial year for legally constituted not-forprofit organisations.

The decision to keep the register off the website went through unremarked and undebated at the October 28 council meeting as part of a number of items passed en masse. The councillors accepted the staff recommendation to simply table the register, which means that the chief executive officer has a copy of it. The staff said that after weighing the public interest considerations, personal information would be an overriding factor against disclosure and would need to be redacted prior to being released to Council’s

website. “This redaction in effect would result in the returns being meaningless, as details of addresses of places of residence and other properties owned form part of the type of information which might be relied upon to determine a pecuniary interest. “If that information is removed from the return, the return has considerably less value.” Council’s Code of Conduct states that the pecuniary interest register must be publicly displayed on Council’s website each year unless there is an overriding public interest reason why they should not go up on the website. The Government Information Public Access Act (GIPA Act) defines the pecuniary interest returns as open access information which must be made publicly available free of charge on Council’s website, but it also states

“unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure”. The Local Government Act places specific obligations on councillors, council delegates, council staff and other people involved in making decisions or giving advice on Council matters to act honestly and responsibly in carrying out their functions. Generally, those obligations include the lodgement of disclosure of interest returns, the lodgement of written declarations and the disclosure of pecuniary interests at council and council committee meetings. The staff report to Council said that all required returns by councillors, the chief executive officer, other senior staff and those council staff identified as designated persons, had been lodged before the statutory date with the exception of seven staff who were designated persons.

“These seven staff are currently on extended leave and will be required to complete a return on resuming their Council duties,” the report said. The Council’s Code of Conduct also states that councillors and designated persons must disclose whether they were a property developer, or a close associate of a corporation that is a property developer. The unredacted returns will be available for view only by an application for inspection, as per Council’s current practice. This means that any member of the public can ask to view them. “It should be noted that in the past, Council has experienced very few requests to view the returns,” the report stated.

Strategic planning should be based on real communities

What is the point of having planning controls? Central Coast Council has approved another multidwelling project on the Peninsula, even though noncompliant with the standards of our development controls (“Five town houses approved under delegation”, PN481, 28/10/19).

What is the point of having development controls, if Council is repeatedly going to decide that the controls are not relevant, whenever it suits? To put it another way, if so many developments are satisfactory, despite not being in compliance, how can the standards be correct and when can we see a set of standards that are meaningful and sustainable? As it is, nobody can know what Council will approve of, and this applies to individual applicants (developers seem to be in a class

Forum of their own) and to residents who are affected by developments. How can any development with a floor space ratio of 5:1 be justified in Ettalong: these are central-city development densities and far in excess of anything contemplated in the present regulations? As for the justification given, this is just boiler-plate verbiage that can be churned out by the yard by anybody who has absorbed the jargon: in fact, it could almost be composed by a random-word generator without any reference to the actual development that is being described. The tip-off here is that the text has obviously been pasted in from the West/Morris Sts development application by a junior on the staff and hasn’t even been proofread by the people supposedly responsible.

If this indicates the level of scrutiny that these texts receive from Council staff, it is little wonder that many residents feel deeply sceptical of our developmentcontrol management. No realistic person is against increasing development densities, but nobody can be happy with the present chaotic system that leaves everybody suspicious and unsatisfied, and lowers trust in the Council to even greater depths than before. Our former mayor, Cr Jane Smith, once sagely announced that the development of the Peninsula required “thinking about”. There was no evidence that this happened during her term and little indication that it is going to happen in the term of the current mayor, Cr Lisa Matthews.

Cr Mehrtens is right in claiming (Coast News, October 31), that it is crazy to base council strategic planning on wards.

They are just artificial bureaucratic creations, constructed to put about the same number of voters in each (and to do it in a way that gave Wyong more wards than Gosford, which is why Wyong ward begins in Manns Rd and goes all the way to Wyee). Strategic planning should be based on real communities, which council staff have been attempting with their “planning districts”. When the new council formed, we were told that “wards are

circumstances and, once the councillors have been elected, they represent the interests of the entire Central Coast LGA, and do not base decisions on the interest of the ward they are elected in”. Pull the other one. Councillors are just politicians and their decision to switch to ward-based planning reflects their anxiety to claim credit for anything that happens in their ward in the hope that this will help their reelection.

Trucks arriving non-stop to empty those thousands of bottles and cans and the noise is shocking. Tourists get off the ferry and it’s the first thing they see. What they see must be a big shock. Email, 26 Oct 2019 Russell Cook, Umina

Roundabout expense could buy 35 homes Like most residents my wife and I support new community development and pay our taxes so that the work can be paid for. We are not experts in judging the costs of the projects proposed, but query costs when the figures don’t seem to add up, as is the case with a recent proposal for a very expensive roundabout at Ettalong at Picnic Pde and Maitland Bay Dr with an estimated cost of $7 million. Various home builders are currently offering brand new four bedroom, two bathroom, double garage brick and tile homes on your land for $200,000. Therefore, you could build 35 homes for the same amount this proposed roundabout. Another proposal is to rebuild the ferry wharf and terminal at Woy Woy for an estimated $5.32 million.

Forum The wharf and ferry terminal appears to incorporate far more expensive work than the couple of blobs of concrete being placed in the middle of a roadway at Ettalong. Is it state, federal or local government who is controlling the spending of these funds and where do they get their costings from? The monies they propose spending have been collected from the taxes we pay and that should always be taken into consideration by the people who are doing the figures. We want and need development by our elected representatives to make your home and mine a better place to live in, but we don’t expect to be taken for a ride.

If councillors want our opinions, read Peninsula News It was with great interest I read the story (Month-long consultation about Woy Woy – Peninsula News, 28 Oct, 2019) that Central Coast Council was seeking local opinions. “It’s time to talk all things Woy Woy - I encourage as many community members as possible to have their say” the mayor, Cr Lisa Matthews, said. Great news, I hear you saying. Well, yes, and no. You see, neither the mayor nor Ms Vaughan, in her media release, say who or when we can actually have our say. There are no details of who we should talk to, be it Council staff or our councillors. There are no details of kiosks in shopping centres or our old Council Chambers. Nothing. However, you will be pleased to know that feedback will be provided at drop-in information sessions lasting four hours and three-and-ahalf hours on November 21. How you have feedback without input, I am not sure. I am also a bit sceptical about

Forum LETTERS TO THE EDITOR should be sent to:

Peninsula News PO Box 1056, Gosford 2250 or editorial@centralcoastnews. net See

Page 2 for contribution conditions Council surveys. In May 2017, we were advised that Council would conduct a survey of residents seeking information about the biggest and best potholes. If you have a look at our disgraceful roads and gaping potholes, nothing has been done in over two years: Same potholes in the same places because a fix that doesn’t work is still being used. How long do have to put up with this sheer incompetence and waste of our rates? A couple of pages further on, Cr Kyle MacGregor proposes a meeting of councillors on the

Peninsula prior to the next election. The good councillor said “I believe in the concept of maximum democracy in local government, where local people have a real and genuine say in how their elected council operates”. Well councillor, I suggested exactly the same thing before the last election. Sorry to say there were no takers. If I were one of our councillors with their track record, I wouldn’t front the people of the Peninsula in anything less than an armoured personnel carrier. Now, I don’t know the outcome at the last Council meeting but just on the off-chance that you were not successful, I have a suggestion. If our councillors want our opinions just read the letters in Forum each fortnight in the Peninsula News. I think it would be fair to say they could start by rejecting all noncomplying building applications and immediately implement a plan to begin kerbing and guttering our flooding streets.

Bladder scanner donated to aged care home The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has donated a bladder scanner to a local aged care home. Club president Mr Don Tee was joined by fellow Rotarians Ms Marie Armstrong and Mr Vic Deeble on October 22 to deliver the scanner to staff at Woy Woy’s BlueWave Living nursing home. Mr Tee presented the device to the facility’s chief executive Mr Matt Downie as well as its chairman Mr Ross Pearce and its care manager Ms Kathy Murphy. Ms Armstrong sourced grant funding from the Rotary International Foundation and the Everglades Country Club to secure the $7000 needed to cover the

cost of the scanner. It will be used to ensure residents can have onsite bladder scans, preventing the need to travel to hospital. Mr Downie said the device would be especially useful for the facility’s dementia patients who sometimes had trouble articulating what was causing them pain. Mr Downie then thanked the Rotarians for their generous donation before joining them that afternoon for the club’s regularly scheduled meeting.

Film documents ‘long walk’ for effective drug treatment A free screening of the documentary Half a Million Steps will take place at the Umina Uniting Church from 6:30pm on November 16.

Mingaletta wins Koori Mini Olympics Mingaletta’s Central Coast Wildfires have won the Aunty Jean’s Koori Mini Olympics.

Over 150 competitors took part in the 15th annual event at the Illawarra Hockey Stadium on October 23. The Koori Mini-Olympics evolved from the Aunty Jean’s Program, which began in the Illawarra in 2004 with the aim of improving the health of aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Program coordinator Ms Rebecca Dawson said she was

delighted for the Wildfires who made it back-to-back wins when they took out this year’s plaque after winning medals in 12 events. “These games have continually provided a physical, spiritual and social element that enhances the wellbeing of the participants as they celebrate together in the games,’’ Ms Dawson said. The Aunty Jean’s Program was named in memory of respected Elder Aunty Jean Morris, who actively promoted aboriginal health and culture in the region.

The successful program was expanded to Ulladulla as well as to the Southern and Murrumbidgee Local Health Districts. The program included physical exercise, education sessions, screening and self-management to support the development of good health behaviour for aboriginal people with chronic and complex health care needs.

AT LAST! AN ENJOYABLE THING THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU

At Umina Chiropractic, we are advocates for great health and we also love the beach! Coming into the warmer months, we see a great number of people enjoying our wonderful beaches here on the Peninsula. From a simple walk on the beach, a run, a swim or a surf, there are a great number of ways to be active and exercise. Now that daylight saving has arrived, we can utilise the cooler part of the day to exercise. If surfing is your thing, you may find it interesting to know that a recent study was conducted by three chiropractors, Drs Andrew Burgess, Michael Swain and

Reidar Lystad, with the support of Surfing NSW. The study looked into the injuries and risks associated with competitive surfing and it found that the lower back was the most common injury suffered by surfers. On the positive side, surfers recorded a higher state of physical and mental quality of life compared to the average Australian. These encouraging results support current surf research and programs which have indicated that surfing helps with mental health and wellbeing. Surfers in the study were highly active, surfing ten hours per week and continuing to

compete into their seventies. They also maintained well balanced diets and consumed alcohol at a lower risk level than the average Australian. This may be a good reason to take up surfing if you don’t currently do it. You could join the staggering number of 2.7 million Australians participating n the sport in Australia. Umina Chiropractic recommends that all surfers, be they recreational or competitive, see a chiropractor for help with managing and preventing these injuries as well to look into ways to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

The film documents the Long Walk to Treatment, a trek from Dubbo to Sydney in October 2018 that delivered an open letter to NSW Parliament urging that effective drug treatment be available to all. The Long Walk to Treatment was a Uniting Church initiative involving a group of 100 people raising awareness of the lack of drug treatment services in regional NSW. The journey was filmed to create the documentary that shares the personal stories behind a movement to reform drug laws and policy and make treatment available to all. Screening organiser Ms Carol

Wilton said all members of the community were welcome to attend. SOURCE: Media release, 4 Nov 2019 Carol Wilton, Umina Uniting Church

Assistance dogs provided to veterans Ettalong’s Art Studios Cooperative has announced its Australian Spirit Project has provided an assistance dog to a veteran on the Coast. Organiser Ms Leasha Craig said she was extremely proud that the Co-operative had been able to help the veteran and that they were in the process of helping another veteran get their dog certified as an assistance dog. “A pilot program has been put in place, to help service dogs become more accessible to veterans and first responders suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder who live on the Coast,” Ms Craig said. “This is a great achievement and is the result of the generous in-kind and financial support that businesses, community groups, creatives, veterans’ associations,

Central Coast Council, RSL subbranches and their affiliated clubs have shown throughout the four years of the Australian Spirit Project. “The project has brought many things to the surface, not only the personal stories and memories of the participating veterans, but also the need for ongoing support for our veterans and their families and the recognition of past and present services to our country,” Ms Craig said. “The program has been designed to ensure that veterans and first responders successfully achieve their goals, while strengthening the team bond,” Ms Craig said.

Pink Day in Woy Woy raises $12,000 A group of women have raised just under $12,000 to support regional breast cancer care nurses through a Pink Day event at Woy Woy. Organised by Ms Vonnie Wood, the event was held at Woy Woy’s Ela Mesa restaurant on October 25 with 30 women coming together for an afternoon of raffles, a silent auction and a long lunch as they raised funds for the Jane McGrath Foundation. The Foundation was formed by Jane McGrath, the late wife of Australian cricket player Glenn McGrath. Her public experience with breast cancer and the impact of her own breast care nurse set her commitment and the mission for the Foundation: to ensure that every family experiencing breast cancer would have access to a breast care nurse no matter where they lived, for free. Pink Days have since been held around the country to honour McGrath’s memory and to help make her dream come true. Ms Wood started the Woy Woy Pink Day last year and raised $12,000 to support the Foundation. This year’s event came close to that figure but Ms Wood said she and the rest of the women who attended were thrilled to have contributed just under $24,000 to

the cause in such a short period of time. Ms Wood said Pink Day was well supported by local women and businesses because the event served as a poignant reminder of the battle against breast cancer. “Sadly, we all know someone affected by breast cancer. “Only 18 months ago, my mother-in-law struggled through her own diagnosis and after a double mastectomy insists McGrath Foundation breast care nurses are angels. “Pink Day is to celebrate these nurses and to help people like my mother-in-law who desperately need this service,” Ms Wood said.

McGrath Foundation director Ms Tracy Bevan attended the Woy Woy event. “Tracy was Jane’s best friend and was there for her throughout her cancer journey,” said Ms Wood. “Jane entrusted Tracy with her dying wish to keep the Foundation flourishing and she has done just that.” Ms Wood said planning was already underway for next year’s Pink Day which she said would feature a breast care nurse as its second guest speaker.

Geography students add to school world map mural Year 12 geography students at Brisbane Water Secondary College Woy Woy campus students have added detail to the school’s world map mural. Students were asked to colour code the cities across the globe based on their status as most liveable (blue), most sustainable (green) and megacities (red). They used Google Earth as well as atlases to narrow each category down to the top 10 of each type.

“Students enjoyed learning where new places were, interested in how some cities were awarded in more than one category and discussed what makes them eligible for each particular category,” said campus principal Ms Rebecca Cooper. “As they learn about different locations and cities, Year 12 will continue to add to our world mural.” SOURCE: Social media, 30 Oct 2019 Rebecca Cooper, BWSC Woy Woy

Rotary club donates five computers five Chromebooks,” Ms Tesch said. Mr Curley said club members had been searching for a cause to support so were pleased to receive the call from Ms Tesch. “When the call came through, we jumped at the opportunity and were more than happy to assist. “It was the perfect way to recognise the life of former president Peter Micheletti who left behind a sum of money when he passed to be used to improve the lives of disadvantaged members in our community,” Mr Curley said. Ms Meadham said the laptop computers would go a long way to assist the learning needs of students.

The Rotary Club of Umina Beach has donated five computers to be used by aboriginal students at Umina Beach Public School. Umina Beach Public School’s aboriginal education teacher Ms Di Meadham had asked Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch for help when several aboriginal students did not have access to laptops during lessons and were being left behind as a result. Ms Tesch was able to connect the school with the Umina Beach Rotary Club which made the donation of computers. “Club secretary Mr Mike Curley agreed to fund the purchasing of

“They will significantly improve the quality of education for these students,” she said. “No longer will they feel isolated and separate from the other students. “These students will now have the opportunity to improve their technology skills and participate in deep-learning opportunities that 21st century technology affords,” Ms Meadham said. The computers were presented to the school during a traditional smoking ceremony officiated by local aboriginal elders.

Annabelle, who holds several state records in shotput, discus and javelin, earnt her bronze in the javelin event and followed this up with a 10th place in the shotput and ninth in the discus. Annabelle’s mother Ms Jodie Ewen-Rodgers said this was Annabelle’s first international athletics appearance. In the months leading up to the games, the family were selling sweets to raise the funds they needed to cover travel costs and other associated expenses for Annabelle to attend the games. “So thanks to everyone who bought some fudge or honeycomb.”

Students partner with Rotary for international aid Woy Woy South Public School has partnered with the newly-formed Rotary Club of Brisbane Water to contribute to international child aid projects. “Students have been collecting dozens of the bottle-tops from milk and juice containers that would normally end up in landfill,” said Rotarian Mrs Jayne Mote. The bottle-tops are recycled into prosthetic mechanical hands and arms for crippled children using 3D printers through the Australian non-profit Envision Hands Project. “These hands and arms are changing lives of children with missing limbs in underdeveloped countries,” Ms Mote said. “The project has drawn a lot of interest and was one that fitted in well with the community support ethos of Rotary as well as Woy Woy South, which did not hesitate to take part. “No sooner had the school

come on board with the Envision project, than they were keen to donate their old library books to children in Papua New Guinea, Nepal and Uganda,” Mrs Mote said. Mrs Mote and her husband and club president Mr Peter Mote recently took a load of the books to Queensland for dispatch overseas.

Mrs Mote said the school’s adoption and support these projects has been outstanding and that the club looked forward to continuing this partnership in the future. SOURCE: Media release, 7 Nov 2019 Di Bartok, Rotary Club of Brisbane Water

Camp Quality puppet show visits Woy Woy Woy Woy Public School recently hosted the Camp Quality Puppet Show.

Senior choir performs at choral festival Umina Beach Public School’s Senior Choir performed at the Central Coast Choral Festival held at The Art House Wyong on October 23. Umina principal Ms Lyn Davies praised choir on its efforts. “The matinee and evening performances were the culmination

of three terms of practice and rehearsals that required a high level of dedication,” she said. “Our students performed beautifully and we are exceptionally proud of their behaviour and enthusiasm on the day. “Many parents, throughout the year, have transported students

to and from rehearsal days and concerts. “Our choir will have more opportunities to perform in upcoming events this term,” she said. SOURCE: Newsletter, 29 Oct 2019 Lyn Davis, Umina Beach Public School

“Many of our families have been touched by cancer and navigating the journey of treatment can be scary, especially so for young children who feel they have no control over what is happening to them or those around them that they care about,” said principal Ms Ona Buckley. “Through the use of puppets, Camp Quality demystifies cancer in a way that children can

understand. “Camp Quality visited Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 and introduced students to Kylie, a young girl with cancer, and her best friend Mel. “We learnt that you can’t catch cancer and although people with cancer may look a little different they are the same person they were before they got sick,” Ms Buckley said.

Blues and roots duo at folk club Australian blues and roots duo Sadie and Jay will feature in the Troubadour Folk Club’s next concert. Their Troubadour performance will be their first on the Coast in a long time and Folk Club president Mr Michael Fine said audiences would have a rare chance to catch the pair in a more intimate performance. “Known for their great songwriting, exceptional vocals and tasteful accompaniment of intricate finger style guitar, bouzouki and double bass, their music styles have leanings to the alternative with a tinge of blues and roots with contemporary and original folk,” Mr Fine said. “Blending vocals of rare calibre with an evocative back-drop of traditional folk instruments this duo perform intimate, expressive and

resonant music. “Born in Scotland and raised in New Zealand, Jay grew up in a musical family immersed in traditional British folk music. “With Welsh heritage, Sadie’s love for singing is instinctive,” Mr Fine said. Songs from Sadie and Jay’s previous album’s Curious and Rogue Folk have been award winners in national and international song competitions. Most recently they were finalists for Song of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards. The concert will get underway at the St Luke’s Church Hall at Woy Woy from 7pm on November 23. Doors open 6:30pm. Tickets are essential. SOURCE: Media release, 5 Nov 2019 Michael Fine, Troubadour Folk Club

Council seeks sculpture for Anderson Park Central Coast Council is seeking tenders for a sculpture for Anderson Park on the Woy Woy waterfront. “The sculpture will be visible from road, pedestrian, rail and waterway entrances to Woy Woy, “ Council director Ms Julie Vaughan. She said the project was a key part of plans to revitalise the “iconic coastal town centre”. Ms Vaughan said the council was looking for an artwork that incorporated “both past and future elements of Woy Woy’s saltwater and inland water ecology”. Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the public art project was “just one of several place-based creative

initiatives Council has planned to activate the Peninsula”. She said: “This project will contribute to the identity of Woy Woy and help create a usable, sustainable and vibrant space for everyone to enjoy.” Artists must demonstrate their

previous experience as public artists and provide a methodology for developing an artwork for Woy Woy as part of the tender. SOURCE: Media release, 25 Oct 2019 Lisa Matthews, Central Coast Council

Satirical variety show promoted for Lakes Festival A satirical variety show to be held at Ettalong this week will be the final event promoted as part of Central Coast Council’s Lakes Festival Clambake II will be presented by the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus at the original Ettalong Community Hall on Broken Bay Rd, from 8pm on Saturday, November 16. The show will feature fringe artists Miss Tree, Debzillah, Jojo Zhao, Hooping Harlet and Vanity Flair presenting performance art, drag and burlesque. Fun Haus chairperson Mr Juan Iocco said: “Clambake last year was the first real fringe arts and cabaret event on the Peninsula

and we’re thrilled to be ramping up the entertainment and building on the momentum of Coastal Twist to continue changing perceptions of the Central Coast, right here on the Peninsula. “Getting to do that as the Peninsula’s first ever Lakes Festival offering just makes it all the more special,” he said. Mr Iocco said that, as was the case with Coastal Twist, the Fun Haus was expecting a large contingent of out of town visitors to descend on Ettalong for Clambake II.

Bill Graham granted life membership at Men’s Shed Mr Bill Graham has been appointed as a life member of the Umina Beach Men’s Shed. After a lifetime in the liquor trade and then a stint at sea, Mr Graham retired to the Peninsula some 20 years ago. He joined the Men’s Shed in 2012 in the hope of sharing his computer skills with other members, for which Shed committee secretary Mr Vic Brown said members were grateful. “Bill’s computer skills and knowledge are seemingly as up to date as the youngsters’ of today, so he is able to help and assist our members. “It wasn’t long before Bill joined the committee and took over the responsibility for opening and closing for the three days a week we are open, and also for running the front of house operations,” Mr Brown said. “For his ongoing contribution,

Umina CWA almost doubles membership in a year The Umina Beach branch of the Country Women’s Association has almost doubled its membership over the past year. The branch has welcomed 15 new members this year to bring total membership to 32, said club publicity officer Ms Margaret Key. She said the branch had experienced “an unprecedented level of growth this year, measured not just by the branch’s influx of new members but by the success of its projects”. Ms Key said members were enjoying the friendship, skill sharing and upskilling opportunities and general sisterhood the Country Women’s Association was known for. She said the branch’s other achievements this year included having the old asbestos roof at their hall replaced and taking part in their first CWA Sconeversation, opening their doors to the community to discuss mental health and promote social connections. Ms Key said the branch was now winding down for the year. “We have wrapped up the year with a barbecue at Umina Beach, which we love as it gives us the chance to interact with our community while raising funds. Ms Key was recently recognised by the Northumberland Group

of the Association for her role in the success of the branch, being awarded the Group’s Publicity Award. She was honoured for her efforts in spreading the message of the Association and for helping promote the Umina Beach branch

in the wider community through her role as the branch’s publicity officer. Ms Key said she was flattered to receive the award but the branch overall was the real winner.

Put your feet up and come travel with Road Runner Tours this Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching so it’s time to start planning your getaway. So why not spend this Christmas with Road Runner Tours for their 8 day Gold Coast Christmas tour or, their 5 day Christmas in Dorrigo. As soon as you step on board the coach you’ll notice the decorated fit-out in keeping with a Christmas spirit in mind, but it’s the places you will be visiting and the fun you will have on these tours that will make this a special time of year to get away. The Gold Coast Christmas tour will take in Seaworld, Tropical Fruit World, The Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, but most excitingly the Australian Outback Spectacular Show. The tour also takes you on a journey through some wonderful towns like Gloucester, Glen Innes, Casino and Tenterfield, the home town of Peter Allen, as you head north to Queensland. But if the Gold Coast is not to your liking this year you can head to higher grounds to Dorrigo with all its beauty and visit Dangar Falls, the Dolphin Marine Magic Conservation Park, The Big Banana, Sealy Lookout and the Skywalk. You will also get plenty of time to explore the many charms of this region and with a group of travellers looking to enjoy Christmas together. And Road Runner Tours don’t forget to include a scrumptious Christmas lunch that is included on both these tours that will warm you up to a great 2020 not too far away.

So to find out all about the places you’ll be visiting go to their website www.roadrunnertours.com.au to download the itinerary or call Road Runner Tours on 02 4353 9050 and ask us about all their upcoming tours and daytrips.

Nathan Malloy and Lee Trethowan

Ettalong pair wins Champion Pairs title Ettalong Memorial Bowling club edged out Umina Beach Men’s Bowling Club to take out the Bowls Central Coast Champion of Club Champions Pairs competition. Ettalong’s Nathan Malloy and Lee Trethowan claimed the Champion Pairs title after beating

Umina’s Glen Simington and Shane Starkey 18 points to four. “As often happens, the drama of this year’s championship was in the earlier rounds,” said Bowls Central Coast secretary Mr Doug Rose. “Glen and Shane won their quarter final by one shot over Wamberal’s Michael Maycock and Darren Hooper.

NOVEMBER 17 DECEMBER 15

“Then they played a semifinal against Bateau Bay’s Brett Williams and Grant Spurway who had a hard-fought one-point win in their quarter final over the high profile Wyong pair of Wayne Hesling and Mark Wheatley. “The Umina pair played impeccable bowls in windy conditions in the semi-final to defeat the Bateau Bay duo 26-8. “Meanwhile, Nathan and Lee had been travelling comfortably through the early rounds until the semi-final when they faced up against Terrigal’s Chayne Edwards and Rod Rewko. “All four players played sensational bowls in windy conditions. “Terrigal got away to an early 8-1 lead but Ettalong came back to finally draw the game 19-all after 19 ends. “Lee and Nathan went on to win the semi 21-20 only ever in the lead after the last end,” Mr Rose said.

THE SHAME FILE

Central Coast Newspapers has a very liberal credit policy for advertisers and realises that from time to time, people, businesses and organisations get into financial difficulty and may need assistance and time to get things back on track. However, some people, businesses and organisations take advantage of this generosity they use advertising but simply don’t pay their account after several months and need to be taken to court to do so. From time to time, as necessary, we will name these people, businesses or organisations as a warning to our readers so that they will be wary when dealing with them.

Surf club celebrates 50 years of ‘rubber ducky’ how we performed rescues. “It has since become a vital piece of equipment that is used not only in Australia but right around the world. “Since records started the boats and the crews that man them have saved 108,000 lives,” he said. Mr Sheppard also shared some historic photos of club members operating the club’s own rubber ducky, including one of Mr Steven Ginnsburg and Mr Greg White aboard the club’s first ever rubber ducky in 1979 and one of former club captain Mr Steven Woulfe in 1982 with the vessel and another historic piece of club equipment, the beach rescue buggy. According to Mr

Sheppard, in those days before specialised beach vehicles, individual clubs had to come up with their own ways of transporting equipment like rubber duckies to parts of the beach where they were needed. For Killcare that problem was solved by the, an old Volkswagen that had been modified to transport boards and other pieces of the club’s equipment around Killcare Beach. “Rescue tech and tools come and go, but the good old rubber ducky is one that has truly stood the test of time,” Mr Sheppard said.

Mixed results for Peninsula Ducks The Peninsula Ducks had mixed results in round three of the Central Coast Softball Association Competition. The Ducks started the round with a 20-17 point win with their teeballers edging out the Blue Thunder. “All reports indicate there is a lot of fun being had by these kids,” said Ducks president Ms Di Barrymore. The Club’s Modball team also

retained their unbeaten status with a hard fought 9-8 point win over Mingara White. The Junior team had a tough time against the Rusty Bears with a 19-4 loss, but Ms Barrymore said the team was enjoying getting out on the pitch and learning to work together as a unit. The Division 4 White’s lost against the Decoys, going down 4-14 in their fixture. The Division 4 Purple fared

better in their match with a 10-4 win over Mingara. Division 3 also recorded a strong win over Mingara with a commanding 19-2 final score. The Division 3 women were having fun and had fitted well into their combined team, Ms Barrymore said. SOURCE: Social media, 28 Oct 2019 Di Barrymore, Peninsula Ducks Softball Club

Jemma Smith comes second in Coolangatta Gold Umina surf athlete Jemma Smith has come second in her first Coolangatta Gold race.

Cassandra van Breugel

Smith went into the competition after having been crowned the Under-23 Female Ocean Kayak World Champion as well as NSW Ironwoman Champion for the year. Her Coolangatta Gold course comprised a 23km ski paddle from Coolangatta to Broadbeach, a 2.1km run to Burleigh followed by a 3.5km swim at Burleigh, a 6.1km board paddle to Currumbin, ending with a 7.1km run. “I’d never done this race before, so I didn’t know what to expect,” Jemma said. “It was a grind, but I absolutely

love tough racing like that. “It makes it really interesting.” Jemma Smith led the pack from the start. “I knew with the ski leg first I had to get out there early and then fortunately in the swim leg I was able to hold the lead which was really nice. “The board leg was then about conserving some energy for the run,” she said. It was a tight finish with Queensland’s Lana Rogers who took the lead in the run but Jemma stayed just strides behind. After four hours, the girls crossed the line just seconds apart Rogers finishing in first place with a time of 4:27.51 and Smith

4:23.54. Other Umina Surf Life Saving Club members also had some excellent results in the short course, the best being Jenni Darwin who took out the gold in the Female 35-49 division with a time of 3:12.19. Michael Magurren was Umina’s next best result with a fourth place finish in the Male 35-49 with a time of 2:36.19. The club’s Poppi Lever and Cashar Darwin also competed in the Youth Challenge.
