ALIVE: TEENS CRUSHED BY OVERTURNED LORRY
Netto blaze ARSONISTS have struck at a supermarket which was due to undergo extensive refurbishment as a result of fire damage. Fire-fighters were called to a store room at the back of the Netto supermarket on Pontefract Road, Lundwood at about 5.45pm on Sunday. They spent a couple of hours damping down and ventilating the supermarket which had become smoke logged. It is thought the fire was suspicious and the cause is under investigation. The supermarket has been closed since it was damaged by fire in November.

The scene of the collision on the road between Springvale and Penistone. The driver, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital with shoulder injuries. Cara Stacey, who lives at the house where the lorry landed, said she couldn’t believe how much damage had been done. She said: “I heard the bang and looked out of the window and saw the lorry in the garden and the girl trapped and called 999. It was very surreal. “I took blankets outside for the girl and luckily there was a doctor nearby and she helped. It was like a scene

now the worst case scenario has come true.” Just six weeks ago a lorry overturned and crushed a Vauxhall Corsa after hitting the same railway bridge. There were no serious injuries. Coun Andrew Millner has written to the highways department previously about visibility and said: “My heart sank when I found out about the accident. There have already been a number of accidents at this bridge. Hopefully this incident will reinforce the priority of this issue with the council.”

from Casualty, it’s a miracle the young girl wasn’t killed.” More than 25 fire fighters from Penistone, Tankersley, Rotherham and Stocksbridge spent over two hours freeing the injured before they were treated by paramedics and taken to hospital. Lynne Taylor, who lives next door to the accident site, said something needs to be done to stop this happening again. She said: “The speed some of the lorries come down here is crazy. They don’t position themselves right and

TWO teenagers are lucky to be alive after being crushed by a lorry that overturned and fell into a garden when it hit a low bridge. Simon Town, 16, of Springwood View and Ellie Heaton, 13, of Green Acres were walking home from school on Monday afternoon when the lorry came towards them on Sheffield Road, Penistone. Ellie suffered serious leg and abdominal injuries after the force of the lorry pushed her through a drystone wall leaving her trapped under the debris for two hours. The lorry landed on top of Penistone Grammar School pupil Simon but he managed to crawl out and dial 999. He was taken to Barnsley hospital with two broken legs and has had to have pins put in them. Ellie, who attends Kingstone school, was also taken to Barnsley hospital but has since been transferred to Sheffield Children’s Hospital where she is said to be in a stable condition. Simon’s mum Jeanette said: “He saw the lorry and thought he was going to die. He didn’t even realise how badly he was injured he just wanted to help the girl. “It is getting easier now he’s getting back to his old bubbly self. He wants to go home but he’s alive with both of his legs. It’s a blessing and I can’t believe it.” Ellie’s parents were unavailable to comment but Mr Storey, head of year nine at Kingstone school, said: “Ellie is a lovely girl. We have all been deeply concerned and shocked by the accident. Her teachers and all her classmates would like to wish Ellie a speedy recovery.”
TOM Masters, nine, of Woodstock Road, Wilthorpe, has been awarded the student of the year award by the North England Karate Association. His sister, Rosie, won the same award in 2003 when she was nine.

Warden charges to increase at different rates this year CHARGES for wardens are to be increased for elderly people who live in sheltered accommodation. Those who moved into council flats before 2003 have protected rates and will pay 5.9 per cent more for the service which at
present costs £16 a week. But the charges for all other residents have yet to be determined and they are expected to be higher. A Berneslai spokesman says the difference in fees will eventually be phased out.
The increases are part of Berneslai’s savings plan for the coming financial year, which are detailed in its draft budget report. Other measures include putting up rent on the gypsy site by five per cent and increasing communal area maintenance charges for people in former Berneslai flats. Berneslai, which aims to move up from a two star to a three star ranking, needs to spend an extra £5.6m during 2008/9 to make up for escalating budget pressures. According to the report there is a predicted rental income loss of £700,000 because of the impact of right to buy scheme and demolitions of unwanted council homes in regeneration areas. The organisation’s rising costs include its bill for repairs, which is expected to go up by £388,000 due to above-inflation labour and material costs. A Berneslai spokesman said the books will balance because the extra money will be taken from a surplus carried over from this year. Councillors on the decision-making cabinet are expected to approve the draft budget proposals at a meeting this week.

Rob Kingsley, 39, of Common Road, has worked as an Elvis tribute for three years and entered the competition last year after being voted the best UK Vegas Elvis. The competition, Walk a Golden Mile in My Shoes, was held in Blackpool over three days. He added: “It has still not sunk in. My family are over the moon for me.” Rob will now compete in the world championships in Canada in July. He said: “I'm looking forward to going. I am the representative for Europe which is an honour and I'm looking forward to it.” Rob has always been an Elvis fan: “I used to sing Elvis on the karaoke and people said I was really good so it just started from there,” he said. He now works as a full-time impersonator all over the world and has beaten the top 140 Elvis tributes in the UK over two years. Originally from Edinburgh, he has professional vocal lessons and a dialect coach to help him speak in an American accent. He was a recruit in the army in Shropshire before becoming a tribute act and moved to Barnsley after spotting a house in Brierley on the internet. But he said: “I still haven't picked up the Barnsley accent.” Rob lives with his wife Marie, 38, and daughter Abbie, 12.

Colliery band helps BBC mark big day THE Grimethorpe Colliery Band helped the BBC celebrate the 60th anniversary of one of its sports programmes. The band performed the theme tune Out of the Blue live on Radio Five Live last Thursday to mark the anniversary of Sports Report. Band manager Terry Webster said: â€œIt was fantastic. Everyone thought it was really good.â€?
Last month the band won awards for Brass Band of the Year and its conductor, Alan Withington, became conductor of the year. Members are now looking forward to preparing for the European Brass Band Championships in May and are hoping to retain their title of English National Champions and National Brass Band Champions later in the year.

RONNIEâ€™S RUGGER SHIRT MAKES A COMEBACK A FORMER professional rugby player from Grimethorpe has been reunited with an old shirt he swapped in 1983.
TO PROMOTE OUR LEGAL SERVICES IN YOUR AREA WE WILL WRITE
Ronnie Wileman, 84, of Nancy Road, went on tour with Hull to Australia and New Zealand and took his 1982 premiership shirt. As he was getting off the plane in New Zealand, he was spotted by Dave Partlett, also from Grimethorpe but who now lives out of the area. Ronnie gave Dave and some of Dave's friends tickets to a match in Auckland and invited them to an after-match reception. It was here Ronnie swapped his shirt with Kerry Hill, who now works in Qatar, for a New Zealand shirt. But Kerry came back to England last month to visit Dave and returned the Hull shirt to Ronnie. Ronnie said: â€œI walked into the club and it went quiet. He gave the shirt to me in the club in front of all my friends. it was amazing.â€? Ronnie has given the shirt to his grandson, Callum, 12, who plays for Grimethorpe Warriors.

for local cancer victims. They are busy preparing for their third show which will be held at Dearne Playhouse later this year. “This will be the third award these young people have won in the past seven months and they really deserve all of them,” said project co-ordinator Jill Arkley-Jevons, who nominated the group for the award and was thrilled to find the news waiting on her return to work after the Christmas break. “They work hard rehearsing every Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, have their own steering group and design their own costumes for the shows. “They came sixth in the Deutsche Bank presentations In London, then won the National Third Sector Excellence Award for best fund-raising event, beating David Walliams and his channel swim, and now this. They’re a fantastic bunch of kids and we’re so proud of them all.” The youngsters are an offshoot of Millennium Volunteers and Links 4 Youth Dearne Valley who are based at Dearne Valley Venture, Bolton-uponDearne and also meet in the community centre at Montagu Hospital, Mexborough.

ANGER AFTER LEAD THIEVES STRIKE BY KATE PICKLES A NEIGHBOURHOOD watch coordinator has been the victim of crime after thieves stole lead from her garage roof. Margaret Hague, of Sheffield Road, Hoyland Common was appalled to discover the damage on New Year's day. The pensioner was away at the time but her son awoke when he heard the disturbance at 3am. He called the police but the offenders had left by the time they arrived.
Stranded: Leah Crowley whose bus pass was confiscated.
Margaret said the incident had upset her and that it was not the start to the New Year she had hoped for. She said: â€œIt is only about six weeks since I called police out because people were pinching lead from the empty shop next door. â€œWhen the police came this time they found two push-bikes and took them as evidence. They have still got them now. â€œI think thereâ€™s a lot of people doing it but itâ€™s the scrap dealers who need catching as they must be selling it on.â€? Anyone with information should call the goldenline on 736457.

Bus pass incident leaves girl stranded BY KATE PICKLES A TEENAGE girl was left stranded and forced to walk for miles when a bus driver confiscated her bus pass because it was scratched. Leah Crowley, 17, of Hoyland Road, Hoyland Common was going to help her friend take photographs at Elsecar reservoir for a school project on January 3. But when they boarded the No 66 in Hoyland at about 1.15pm the Stagecoach driver took away her student travel pass leaving her with insufficient money to get home. Leah, who is studying for her A-levels at Barnsley College, said she did not think the driver was being serious. She said: â€œI got my pass out and where it had been in my pocket it was a bit scratched. Thatâ€™s when he said he would have to take it off me. â€œHe laughed and I thought he was jok-
ing but he wasn't. I was gobsmacked.â€? Leah did not have enough money to pay the full fare on her way home so had to walk for nearly an hour in freezing weather. And the teenager is worried that the same thing could happen to younger passengers. She said: â€œIf they could do it to a 17year-old then they could have done it to an 11-year-old too.â€? Leah has since been issued with a letter from Stagecoach telling drivers to let her on at the student rate. A spokesman for the company said the driver was presented with an illegible photograph and followed procedures. Commercial director Rupert Cox said: â€œWe are aware this left the young lady with no bus pass but she did not attempt to use our service on the way home. The fact that the passenger chose to walk back home later is out of our control.â€?

MAIL HALTED AFTER YOBS STONE POSTIE
It’s ice work for skater Jessica A YOUNG skater is turning high school into ice cool after landing a part in a big Disney stage production. Jessica Whitham, 17, of Park Road, Worsbrough Bridge, will be dancing on ice in the stage version of the hit movie High School Musical. Jessica, who works as a dancer and ice skating teacher, said she was delighted to win a supporting role in the show after an hour-long audition in Manchester. She will now tour the country before going on to perform all over the world, including the USA, Australia and China. The first date is at Sheffield Arena today. Jessica said: “It’s brill. For someone of my age, it’s a great opportunity. “I’ve done a lot of shows before, but these are in massive arenas, so it’s going to be a different experience.”

haven't let us know anything. It would have been nice to have been notified. They must deliver to worse areas than this.” Neighbour Rachel Burns said her family had been without a regular gas supply since New Year’s Eve as they were waiting for a new gas meter card to be delivered. She said: “The chip in the gas card broke and I called British Gas who said they would send a new one but we never got it. “I didn't even know they had stopped delivering. I've kept having to ring the gas company to get emergency credit.” Royal Mail said the incident had been reported to police and deliveries were now back to normal. A spokesman said: "The safety of our staff is paramount. Therefore, deliveries in Welland Crescent, Elsecar were temporarily suspended between Friday 4 January and Wednesday 9 January following a stonethrowing attack on one of our delivery staff. The incident has been reported to the police."

Deliveries to Welland Crescent, Elsecar were suspended on January 4 and only resumed last Wednesday when the postman was accompanied by a second staff member. Residents of the estate, once described by MP Mick Clapham as the worst in the borough, say they were not told about the 'strike'. Peter Down, who makes deliveries for Tesco, had to go to Wombwell sorting
office to pick up his mail. He said: “I've been down and fetched the post from Wombwell and they said the postman had been under attack from kids throwing stones. “They said it was a ‘no go’ area and just gave me mine and my neighbour's post.” Wife Amanda, 44, was annoyed that nobody had been notified about the situation. She said: “We haven't had any post since it snowed and all I've heard is that it’s because kids were throwing snowballs at the postman. I don’t know why they would as he's a lovely guy. “The thing that has really annoyed me is that they

HUNT FOR GRAFFITI VANDAL BY EMMA SPENCER A YOUTH who appears to be copying the style of an internationally-known graffiti vandal is at work in Barnsley.
Vandalism: examples of the graffiti
Graffiti resembling the work of ‘Banksy’ has appeared on a boarded up shop front on Neville Avenue, Kendray. Banksy’s identity is a mystery – no-one knows who he is or where he is from – but images of his work are posted on a website and a book about him was published in 2006. The copycat has painted a stencil on the shop front, purporting to be from Barnsley Council, saying it is designated as a graffiti zone. Further up Neville Avenue an image of two ‘kissing policemen’ has been sprayed onto some chip board. The real Banksy has done similar pieces in London and other parts of the country. Mel Shaw, a warden with Kendray and Worsbrough Safer Neighbourhood Team, confirmed the notice hadn’t been posted by the council. He said that once they have determined ownership of the property they would be able to
clean it off. Sergeant Richard Close said it looked like there was a copycat at work. He added: “This is somebody who has been there for a long time. We will be having a look at it.” Police are also trying to locate vandals who sprayed large tags nearby, reading “size” and “dyna”.

Director quits football club in race incident BY ADAM CIVICO A CAWTHORNE businessman has quit as a director of Sheffield Wednesday FC following an investigation into claims he had made racist comments. Keith Addy lives in Cawthorne and runs building firm Wortley Construction. He had been a nonexecutive director at the club for 32 years but resigned after making “racially offensive” remarks during a telephone conversation. An internal investigation had been completed earlier this week after a complaint was first made in November. Mr Addy, 73, said it was with great sadness that he resigned as a nonexecutive director with immediate effect. He said: “My resigna-
tion follows a remark I made in November last year to a member of staff at the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This remark, directed not at the employee but at a public agency, used a term which I now realise was racially offensive and wholly inappropriate. It was not intended as a racial slur but was stated in the heat of the moment at a time of stress and out of frustration. “It was however a vestige of language which is no longer used in a multicultural society and this has been a harsh lesson to me that many terms society may once have used are no longer, and should no longer be, part of our language.” A statement on the Owls' website thanked Mr Addy for his contribution and dedication.

Borough’s secondary schools fifth from bottom in latest national tables
HUNDREDS OF SCHOOL LEAVERS LACK THE BASIC QUALIFICATIONS BY ADAM CIVICO HUNDREDS of 16-year-olds are leaving Barnsley schools without basic qualifications in maths and English, according to school league tables published yesterday. The figures reveal that in five schools fewer than a quarter of students get the target five A* to C grades, including maths and English. Overall, just 31.4 per cent of Barnsley GCSE pupils achieved the target, compared to a national average of 46 per cent. That leaves the town languishing 145th out of 149 education authorities for its achievement, including maths and English. Director of children’s services, Edna Sutton, acknowledged the problem needed tackling. She said: “We know we have got work to do in terms of getting a stronger results in GCSE English and maths and that has our full attention. We are confident we will see improvement, just as we have seen improvement everywhere else we are working.” Extra work is already being done with specific groups of children and schools are getting more support. Graham Lund, Barnsley Council’s assistant director for school attainment, said every child's performance is logged through their schooling. “We have worked out a support package with the schools targeting the year group and individuals for specialised support.”
That includes more time to teach maths and English, including pre and after school clubs. Teachers who work in adult education, mostly teaching night classes, are also being used to work with children during the day. Mr Lund said: “We hope to have a five per cent increase next year, that will be five times the improvement this year.” Ms Sutton said the data did not give a full picture and many pupils achieved a combined English and maths qualification, equivalent to one GCSE, but not reflected in the statistics. Meanwhile, when English and maths are disregarded, pupils’ GCSE performance was the best ever. It has increased by almost four per cent – enough to move the borough up the national league by one place to 128th. In Barnsley 53.5 per cent of pupils achieve five A* to C grades. That is 7.3 per cent behind the national average but is significantly better that the position five years ago when just 39.2 per cent of pupils hit the target. Ms Sutton said: “We’re really pleased about the general direction we are taking. We've got a strong curriculum base, our youngsters are motivated, they're succeeding and staying in learning." Mr Lund added: “These are our highest results ever. We are improving and narrowing the gap between the national average and Barnsley. We have halved the gap since 2002.”
How they performed Pupils % 5+ A-C % 5+ A-C passes Maths & English
‘Success in other areas’ say chiefs WILLOWGARTH, Barnsley Academy and Dearne High schools are at the bottom of this year’s league table – but that does not give the full picture, say education chiefs. While the figures for maths and English GCSEs might be disappointing, the three schools are having success in other areas. They offer vocational courses and qualification in practical areas, such as using computers. When assessed these are deemed equivalent to GCSEs and the three schools are in the top five per cent nationally for improving pupils’ ability. The ‘value added’ score measures pupils levels when they enter secondary school and again when they leave. Graham Lund, head of school attainment, said: “What they are doing is motivating youngsters and giving them access to a broad curriculum which allows them to achieve and raise their aspirations." Cabinet spokeswoman for children's services, Coun Linda Burgess, paid tribute to the hard work going in schools across Barnsley. She said: “We now have more youngsters than ever before achieving 5 A-C grades which is giving them a better chance of staying in learning, improving their life chances and job opportunities.”
Poetic Gordon ‘s book to raise money for mental health sufferers CUDWORTH newsagent Gordon Bird, 72, of Dodworth Road, started writing poems in January last year shortly before his daughter Julie committed suicide following mental health problems.
Gordon's first wife, Margaret, also had mental health problems and committed suicide in 1975 when she was 38. Gordon said: “I feel if this book can help one person with mental
health problems then it will be worth it.” The book will raise money for Mind, the National Association for Mental Health, and is due out at the end of the month.

Work starts on £4.1m leisure centre THE ground-breaking ceremony for the £4.1 leisure centre for Wath takes place later this month. The complex on Festival Road will include swimming facilities and a fitness suite. There will be a five-lane 25-metre pool, a separate teaching pool, a 25-station fitness gym and a separate dance studio. It is part of the £35 million private finance scheme, said to be the largest in

the country, and managed by DC Leisure in partnership with the council. Rotherham Council’s cabinet member for environment development services, Coun Gerald Smith, will perform the ceremony with the chair of governors and headteacher of Wath Comprehensive school, Irene Hartley and Pat Ward, and other BY JULIAN THORPE councillors. The ceremony takes place at 3pm on Wednesday January 23. A WEBSITE which made potentially racist comments about Barnsley taxi firms has sparked fury among operators and the Family run business council. with a personal, The site, www.barnsleytaxi.co.uk, purported to be a public resource to friendly service. give information about taxi services, but denigrates several operators and says that an “influx of foreign drivers” has caused “alarm and confusion among locals”. It was first brought to the council’s attention after it was spotted by a Blue Line driver, who reported it to company owner Pete Tingey. Mr Tingey said he was appalled at “racist” comments on the site relating to Blue Line and complained to the council. Licensing enforcement officers then located the creator of the site, web

designer Graeme Wingate, of Wakefield Road, and asked him to remove it. He refused, but removed some of the more offensive comments and added a paragraph explaining that he had been threatened by the council, Graeme’s dad, Thomas Wingate, is a former Blue Line driver and he was also contacted by a furious Pete Tingey. The site was subsequently modified to give a favourable review of Blue Line. A review of Red Line Taxis, a new firm, was also removed, because it inaccurately stated that it was one of the biggest taxi operators in Barnsley, with more than 60 drivers. The removed review also states: “Another unique selling point of this taxi company is that it only employs taxi drivers who were born and bred
in Barnsley. “It feels that Barnsley is unique in the fact that Barnsley folk trust Barnsley folk. “Barnsley people feel more safe if they are able to relate to men and women drivers who can talk their language.” Graeme Wingate, who designs websites for several clients, says the Barnsley Taxis site was created on behalf of a client who wishes to remain anonymous. He refuses to reveal the client’s identity, despite threats of prosecution by the council. Mr Wingate has now complained to the information commissioner, alleging that the council has broken data protection laws in locating his address. He is still waiting for a reply. The site was taken down after the Chronicle contacted Mr Wingate.

PARKER DEAL DEAD, REDS’ BOSS ON HUNT BY ANDREW LODGE BARNSLEY boss Simon Davey is stepping up his bid to land his top transfer targets – after paving the way for new arrivals. Davey hopes to tie up a loan deal for a leftback soon. The manager did not want to reveal the player’s identity until he has signed, but he did tell the Chronicle: “Hopefully we can bring the lad in. He is a left-footed left-back, who will bring a bit of balance to the squad.” Following the departure of Dominik Werling, the Reds have been using right-footed Marciano Van Homoet on the left. The Reds have had another German leftback on trial. The January transfer window is now wide open, and Davey has cancelled Paul Heckingbottom’s contract by mutual consent, allowing the left-back to join Bradford City on a an 18-month deal, and made club captain Paul Reid, goalkeeper Nick Colgan and veteran midfielder Andy Johnson available for transfer. However, Davey has turned down a bid from Scunthorpe for Northern Ireland international Grant McCann – thought to be around £200,000 – because it ‘did not meet the club’s valuation’. The Reds are understood to be seeking close to £400,000. Davey said: “I’d be happy for him to stay. He is an important member of the squad but I

Andy Johnson, only signed in the summer but now on the transfer list. wouldn’t stand in his way if someone met our valuation and he wanted to go. “It is ironic really. We offered Scunthorpe £300,000 for Marcus Williams in the summer and they wanted £750,000. Now the boot is on the other foot.” Davey has also said that the deal for Blackpool striker Keigan Parker is now ‘dead in the water’, after Parker failed to agree personal terms. A £200,000 fee had been agreed between the two clubs. Davey said: “Any negotiation process can throw up a difference of opinion. We were quite a distance apart on personal terms. He wanted more money, we told him we weren’t

prepared to give him it. We had made an offer which we thought was appropriate.” Top of Davey’s transfer wishlist are Lewin Nyatanga, Jon Macken and Anderson De Silva. Davey said: “We do have a list of players we want. We have had that for quite a while. and I’m stalking a lot of managers at the moment!” “Lewin, Jon and Anderson are top of that list. I would like to bring all three of them back here this month and I am talking to their respective clubs.” Of the three players placed on the transfer list, it comes as a bit of a surprise that Davey is allowing Johnson to depart so soon, having only recruited the 33-year-old midfielder in the summer. Reid, 25, and ’keeper Colgan, 34, were always likely departures, after failed to force their way into the first team reckoning. The club captaincy now goes to Brian Howard. New signing Diego Leon is looking to earn a place on the bench, after finally receiving international clearance and playing for the reserves in a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United at Worksop. Istvan Ferenczi is back in contention after being rested; Kayode Odejayi has started the last few games; Miguel Mostto has recovered from a knock against Blackpool; and Michael Coulson is chomping at the bit after his super sub appearance in the FA Cup. Ex-Red Daniel Nardiello has been transfer-listed by QPR.
