There are some amazing gardens open for the Bathurst Spring Spectacular (27th/28th), many of them with interesting historical backgrounds. Proceeds raised from the tickets go to CanAssist, Bathurst Early Childhood Intervention Service and the Mitchell Conservatorium so it’s well worth a weekend out! But if strolling around beautiful gardens isn’t quite your thing, how’s this; Skydive OZ is in Bathurst on the (27th/28th). Yes!! And if jumping from a plane isn’t your idea of fun either, this same weekend jams the Stamp and Coin Collectors Garage Sale, the Bathurst Farmer’s Markets, Gypsy Favourites Concert and the Wattle Flat Bronze Thong Weekend, Gymkhana and Music Awards all into the one weekend!

Two Icons—One show Chifley Home Education Centre has unveiled its principle exhibition devoted to Ben Chifley and the creation of the Australian Holden car. MARYANNE TAOUK

FordGenuin Rem e $ otes



The exhibiTion, titled “ben Chifley and the Fx holden; two Australian icons” consists of letters from Prime Minister Chifley, original items from the launch day in november 1948 and sketch works of a car made for Australians by Australians. Curator Greg Absler emphasised the importance of both Chifley and the holden car company in generating industry in a post war Australia. “ben Chifley had the idea of developing secondary industry in Australia. We weren’t really a country known for manufacturing. Chifley was really supportive of holden building a car from scratch in Australia.” With extensive knowledge of the holden

car itself and working within the holden Company for over 30 years, Mr. Absler understands the importance of the Fx car and shows all the pride that Chifley did the day of the cars launch 64 years ago. “Australia as a country was very proud too, it was a defining moment in terms of pride in Australia of being able to do such a thing.” For race fans or history buffs the exhibition is proving to be a critical part in Australian history along with our proud racing tradition. Mr. Absler hopes that the show will allow audiences to discover parts of the Fx holden and our late Prime Minister that they hadn’t known before; as they were more than just the prime minister standing next to the car, that both car and man had actually played a major role in making Australian history.

What’s in it for me? How often have we heard this term? It seems to me that as a society, we are all starting to take that notion a bit too seriously. More and more I am seeing and hearing people express more about what they want or expect rather than showing any understanding or consideration for the other person’s interests. We see it all around us on almost every front. I personally saw it when we dropped our TV Guide out of the Orange PhotoNews a few weeks back. It wasn’t that people expressed their disappointment that was the problem, but the manner and language most used to convey their feelings. We took over a hundred emails or phone calls and I’d have to say that at least 90% were of a venomous nature. Very few people were cordial or showed any sort of understanding for our position. It was quite an eye-opener. Our news bulletins are filled with workers who for one reason or another face losing their jobs and their complaints and actions show little consideration for the people who have to pay them. It doesn’t seem to matter if the reasons are valid or not, these employees feel it’s all about them and nobody else. People in every community openly complain about their Council and more often than not it’s about some service or facility that’s not up to scratch. It doesn’t seem to matter that the Council may not have the money to meet these expectations yet if they ask the community to cough up to pay for what they want and they won’t have a bar of that either. How can anyone operate with that going on? Then we have road rage, work rage, trolley rage, phone rage and new forms of ‘rage’ entering our society almost on a daily basis. We get angry about telemarketers, automated phone systems, slow check out operators, poor customer service, an ever increasing number of rules and regulations that seem to penalise honest or decent people yet are laughed at by many of the offenders they’re targeted at. More and more people, it seems, are only seeing things from their own personal perspective and therefore are far less tolerant when things don’t go their way. It wasn’t always like this but it does seem to me to becoming more the norm these days and I’m not sure about you but I don’t like it. As a Christian I believe we’re here first and foremost to serve others not ourselves. Speaking for myself I’ve always tried to do this and I can honestly say that I don’t feel I’ve missed out on anything important as a result. Personally I find the notion that it’s better to give than receive very true. I can’t change the world, but I can share my feelings with you in case you’re feeling the same way and want to do something about it. Let’s all try to be a bit more tolerant, patient and understanding when considering the position of others.

Spring Spectacular set to bloom


Koch is Port’s new AFL president: report ADELAIDE

Spring has sprung, and so have the gardens in this year’s Bathurst Spring Spectacular Garden Weekend. MARYANNE TAOUK With azaleas and roses featuring heavily this year, the tour includes the finest gardens Bathurst has to offer. highlights throughout the tour include Georgian and Victorian homesteads boasting fine post colonial gardens, along with historical areas with mature trees from the 1800s. the spring flowers that are in bloom are sure to be inspiration for those hoping to bring some colour into their own garden’s, with clematis’, roses, annuals and blossoms delighting the senses. anne llewellyn from the Bathurst Gardeners’ club says

this year offers a very diverse range of gardens from formal to large country and it is a perfect way to get some tips from those who are in the know. “this weekend gives people ideas i think, more than anything, as well as being just a beautiful weekend of leisurely wandering.” Gardens open on saturday and sunday the 27th and 28th of October and will feature eleven prize winning landscapes with the owners also present to answer any garden queries. all proceeds from the spring spectacular will go towards the Canassist, Bathurst early Childhood intervention service and Mitchell Conservatorium of Music.

Sydney-based Seven Network identity David Koch is reportedly set to be named AFL club Port Adelaide’s new president. Koch, host of Seven’s breakfast program Sunrise and with a background in finance journalism, has been anointed the Power’s next leader by both Fairfax and News Limited websites. Adelaide newspaper The Advertiser’s website says the Power are set to adopt five new board members including Koch. The Age also reported Koch would be named president on Tuesday, but that an announcement on ex-coach Matthew Primus’s replacement was not expected. A Port official said on Monday the club would not comment about the speculation. Power president Brett Duncanson announced in August he would stand down in December. Koch is the Power’s No.1 ticket holder and, if the report is correct, would follow in the footsteps of fellow television personalities and AFL club presidents Eddie McGuire (Collingwood) and James Brayshaw (North Melbourne). While on-field success has been limited in the past few seasons, Koch’s biggest challenge would be turning around the club’s perilous financial state from afar. He would also offer a profile beyond South Australia. The AFL Commission and the SA Football Commission are helping fund the debt-ridden AFL club.

British policeman ‘baffled by moon’ LONDON A British policeman put his colleagues on alert as he investigated a “suspicious bright light” – only to find it was the moon, an inhouse magazine for the police has reported. Police magazine reported that the hapless officer only realised his blunder after warning his fellow constables in Worcestershire, central England, that he might require back-up. The magazine’s Dogberry column revealed: “While single-crewed on night duty in Worcestershire a PC called up his sergeant letting him know that he was going up into the Clent Hills to investigate a ‘suspicious bright light’ that he could see shining from the other side of the hills. “The call was for safety reasons as he might need back-up once he found the source. “Twenty minutes later the PC called his sergeant back to reassure him that everything was ok and that he had found the source of the light. “This diligent PC had in fact discovered the moon.” While the gaffe was once known only to the unnamed policeman’s colleagues in the Worcestershire force, it has now been revealed to all 132,000 police rank-and-file officers in England and Wales who receive the magazine.

Kelso has heralded the opening of their Community Centre’s new basketball court. MARYANNE TAOUK aFter yearS of a half court with only one hoop, they finally opened a full court for the use of all community members. the bathurst Council secured a

$15,000 grant as part of the State government Community building Partnership, and contributed the remaining amount required to make the court a reality, much to the delight of community members. the court was opened by newly

God and injustices By Melanie Pearce

Exhibition curator Catherine Fox

Socrates, Dickens and Friends visit Bathurst MARYANNE TAOUK SocrateS haS been Spotted at bathurst council building, this philosophical juggernaut is but one of the many religious, historical and musical guests that have been pictured in and around bathurst architecture, that is, in the imagination of renowned artist Greg hyde. the whimsical and colourful artworks are part of hyde’s newest exhibition titled ‘Socrates, dickens and Friends visit bathurst’. With bathurst inspired artwork, hyde’s

work has been exhibited in the Wynne and archibald shows along with being represented in australian and overseas collections. a long history of travel, hyde has settled in bathurst where he draws inspiration from the landscapes, forming texture and colour with what he describes as a “pseudo-intellectual aestheticism” which he hopes is relevant today. catherine Fox, curator of the exhibition and owner of Fox’s Gallery certainly agrees with the description and hopes that the exhibition is embraced by those in bathurst looking for something a little out of the ordinary but still endearingly artistic.

the eight-year-old cried out as the heavy seat of the seesaw at Gosling creek playground slammed down on his leg. Some older boys had apparently deliberately jumped off the other end. they laughed at my friend’s injured son who had a gash to the bone, requiring stitches, and an ankle the size of a softball. one of the older boys said, “Sucked in! he deserved it.” My blood boiled at the injustice. My friend’s son was the victim and was mocked for it! It wasn’t on the scale of genocide or children forcibly taken from their parents, but it was wrong. God also gets angry at injustices, small and great. Many people think their small wrongs such as white lies, isolating others or arrogance don’t matter to God because they have been mostly good. however, if small injustices matter to us, why wouldn’t they matter to our creator?that is why another injustice took place about 2,000 years ago. a man who had done nothing wrong, was mocked, injured and killed in place of all of us. the scales of justice have been unjustly tilted in our favour but it is up to us to accept the pardon.

CAOS on show The years of experience within the Central Tablelands Woodcraft group are immeasurable, President Michael Nassar, treasurer Allan Rintoul and vice presidents Bob Bennett and John McMahon have had more years involved in the community than many of us have been alive. StOry & PICS By MAryANNE tAOUK There isn’t much that this group of rambunctious gentleman cannot handle, and with Mr. Nassar’s wife Madeleine at the helm of many of their operations it’s no wonder this group is growing and contributing more to the Bathurst community each day. As part of the Woodies group, as they’re affectionately known, these Bathurst retirees are leading the way in volunteering time and hand crafted products to many institutions in and around Bathurst, including rebuilding parts of burnt out Kelso High, building integral parts for the Bathurst Brain Injury Group to use in demonstrations and creating the large chess set at the Bathurst Library. With over 40 members, there are a growing number of people in and around Bathurst who are part of a club that is unlike any other in the region. This year marks the 22nd Craft on Show that is held to celebrate the work of the Woodies, this year will see the inclusion of artistic works from the region, with a definite ‘hand crafted’ theme. The Craft and Art On Show event, dubbed CAOS, will see items made by the Woodies team on sale along with various other artistic works from the community. The event runs for two days on the 3rd and 4th of November at the Bathurst Showground Beau Brown and Trevitt Pavillions. For more information contact Madeleine Nassar on 6332 9080

Come, stay awhile, eat! With plenty of worldwide drama, Iran has had its fair share of attention from countries like Australia. MARYANNE TAOUK Simin Sadrzade knows firsthand about this, yet maintains this country and the country of her birth have more similarities than people might realise. Simin is a bubbly and polite young girl who recently made the brave 10,000km move across the world and now calls Bathurst home. it’s the extreme hospitality that Simin and her family give that speaks of the culture of their home country. On walking in the door, you are welcomed and offered drinks and food that are unimaginable. “That’s what we do, when we have people over we pressure them (not purposely) to stay longer and have more food” says Simin. This is what Simin and her father refer to as kill you with


Aguilera talks of weight loss pressure Singer Christina Aguilera was urged to lose weight in 2002 because label bosses feared her curvy figure would be bad for business. Aguilera recently opened up about her new fuller shape, insisting she loves her body no matter what critics say. But the Grammy winner has not always been so confident and admits she was pressured into shedding 7kg during the middle of her Stripped tour with pop star Justin Timberlake 10 years ago. “During the promotion of my album Stripped, I got tired of being a skinny, white girl. I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl,” she tells Billboard magazine. “The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promo-

feeding, or feed you so much you want to die. “in our culture it’s a nice thing to do, to pressure them to eat more.” Born in Tehran, a city with a population over 7 million, it is refreshing for Simin to be in an area as serene as Bathurst. “There were millions of people everywhere, so busy; it’s really quiet and peaceful here,” although these differences in population and environment don’t stop the Sadrzade family from exercising the hospitality that has become synonymous with the Persian identity. “We really like inviting people over just to spend time together,” Simin says. This generosity extends to all parts of the Persian culture with the welcoming warmth and friendliness that you would expect when walking into a close relatives home.

tion and during my Stripped tour. “They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight – the production, musical directors. “(They claimed) people I toured with (like Timberlake) would also miss out if I gained weight because I would sell no records or tickets for my shows. I was young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics promos and touring (in 2006).” However, the 31-yearold mum reveals she no longer worries about how her size will impact her brand. “I told them during this Lotus (2012) recording, ‘you are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it’. “They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore – my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”

I’m a good listener What musical instrument have you always wanted to learn to play? Piano

This phoTograph features The haymarket hotel which stood on the western corner of the William and Durham street intersection in Bathurst. Today this site is occupied by a United petrol station. The far left corner of the balcony of the haymarket hotel was an ideal place to take photographs to get a good view looking up William street.

a number of photographs in Bathurst historical society’s archives have been snapped at this location to record street parades. in later years the haymarket hotel underwent significant alteration and it was renamed the hotel Bathurst. The cast iron pillars and ornamental lacework became a casualty. The hotel Bathurst was demolished in the 1960s to make way for the first service station on this site.

The exact date this photograph was taken is not known, but judging by the clothes of many in the picture, it would have been between 1905 and 1920. The sign advertises an upcoming Bathurst show which was scheduled for april 6, 7 and 8. it would seem the photo was taken to mark the start of a bike race. Cycling is one of the oldest established sports in Bathurst. it arose out of the popularity

of bike riding that follows the invention of the pneumatic tyre by J. Dunlop in 1888. in 1897 the Bathurst Branch of NsW League of Wheelmen was conducting cycle meetings and a Bathurst amateur Cycle Club was formed in the same year. it affiliated with the League in 1914. Bathurst has produced a number of world class cyclists over the years. Best known of the current crop is Tour de France rider Mark renshaw.

MAGNIFICENTwHEELS Words and pictures by Maryanne taouK This 1974 Chrysler Valiant VJ Charger is sure to make even the most hardened car fan swoon, with minor modifications this example of Australian muscle has given owner Paul Basha plenty of memories. Paul purchased the car off eBay two years ago, as a father and son project with the whole family getting involved with car shows and restoration. The Mercury Silver paint gives the look of a serious ride, with original w35 “jelly bean” mag wheels and a full interior refurbishment. The car also has a 265 Hemi engine with extractions for that extra bit of oomph. Paul plans on keeping the car for years to come and one day hand it down through his family, “I hope to add to the collection and make the most of my father’s mechanical knowledge. The car has given me a lot of pleasure whilst being challenging at the same time.” The car is certainly a keeper, with Paul’s family relishing the opportunity to travel through the streets of Bathurst in their very own muscle car. Suspension and a 900 cc engine, it is a true statement of ‘cool’. Custom handle bars and rises give this bike unique touches that others just don’t have.

on my mind

… Like a Horse and Carriage

The dilemma of sport versus everything else is a huge one in many people’s lives. Is it still as important after 20 years of marriage?

If you aren’t a fanatical supporter of a sporting team, then the next 600-odd words may go over your head. If you were born in your clubs colours, then you’re right there with me. As you read this, the ‘issue’ I am writing about will have happened four days ago, and it’ll all be water under the bridge, so to speak, one way or the other. As I write this column, it’s 20 years to the day that my beautiful wife and I said ‘I do’. The day of our wedding saw my brother-in-law having conniptions, as he was the ‘driver’ of the wedding car—and the radio code in the hire car was ‘locked’, so he couldn’t listen to the AFL broadcast as we dawdled in the stunning Forbes afternoon sun getting photos by the lake. Luckily it was

months ago she had no idea that my beloved bulldogs would be part of the one day in September that everyone waits for. Now, Hayman Island is a very exclusive place, I gather, and we’ve scrimped and saved our pennies to put together this holiday, (no, the kids are NOT with us). There was panic, guilt, and worry at the realisation that the doggies and my wife were on a collision course on this palatial paradise in the Great Barrier Reef. A compromise was reached between the Hatfield’s (me) and the McCoy’s (Cate) on this issue… she is ‘allowed’ to bring her Kindle reader away with her, and I can watch the GF on our 2nd honeymoon without a lifetime of pain and grief following.

only Geelong and West Coast, as we may have been walking if his team, the Hawks, had been playing. As we flew out to Fiji the following afternoon, the League Grand final was on, and it was the first one I’d missed since, well, ever, I think. Again, only the Broncos and the Dragons, so not a thing of total global importance. On the weekend just passed, (remember, I’m writing this before the GF, and you are reading it afterward), my wife and I flew out to Hayman island for four days of relaxation, romance and reflection on twenty wonderful years. When she booked, I’m sure she hadn’t put two-and-two together that again the grand final was clashing with a weddingrelated event. Not only that, I guess four


I remember vividly my sister-in-law organising a surprise 40th birthday party for her husband on World Cup Rugby Final Night back in 2003… and how dirty all of us males were. That one was remedied with a big screen, high volume and a change of ‘theme’ to have everyone in Wallabies gear. Apart from the final result, the night was a perfect blend of rugby and birthday celebration. This year, a move away from the Sunday night prime-time grand final should see me steer clear of a major marital catastrophe, with the kick-off at 5:15, final siren at 7pm and dinner reservations at 7:30 in the most exclusive restaurant on the island hopefully seeing everyone in seventh heaven on the

first day of our second honeymoon. [Yes, I did check that they even HAD television on Hayman Island, and the main bar has a massive screen with the GF to play to a happy crowd]. Whether they won or lost, I wonder if a change of outfit will be necessary for dinner, or if the well-worn doggies jersey my wife bought me three months before we tied the knot in 1992 will get me in? As you read this, the result of the game will be fish and chip wrapping, and life will be back to normal. Maybe I should get the calendar for 2013

and mark on it all the important dates… the Bledisloe Cup, the League Grand Final, the Bathurst 1000, and of course our 21st wedding anniversary.

Take a nostalgic trip to Turon! It won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s extremely interesting none the less. I’m talking about the Turon Technological Museum that’s found on a property between Sofala and Ilford about 45 minutes out of Bathurst. BOB HOLLAND I was part of a group that went there for a day out recently and I took the opportunity to take a few photos so I could tell our readers about the place. Cost is $8 for adults and our group also arranged for lunch to be supplied which was an extra $12. the setting is right out in the scrub and the museum is a collection of sheds full of restored machinery, memorabilia, stories, and more. other pieces are displayed outdoors. Jim and Jenny walker are the hosts and between them they make visitors feel very much at home. Jim is a wealth of knowledge and provides a fascinating and information packed tour of the museum. Jenny looks after the catering and I’d have to say the barbeque lunch was excellent quality and value. the photos give a clear indication of what you’ll discover there and I’d suggest that any group or club that’s looking for a day out will find this museum fits the bill perfectly. Call them on 6358 8434 or check their website www.

Slimline pets now fighting fit LONDON A group of pets has gone from fat to fit after taking part in an animal slimming competition. The animals were put on tough diets and strict exercise regimes in an attempt to get them to shed the bulk. The competition, organised by veterinary charity PDSA Pet Fit Club, helped 17 obese pets lose a total of 86kg, roughly equivalent to 28 Yorkshire terriers. Jack, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, was crowned the UK’s pet slimming champion for 2012 after shedding nearly one third of his bodyweight – an impressive 6kg – taking him to a healthy 15kg. Owner Rose Welsh, 52, said the seven-year-old was overfed and hardly exercised as his obesity led to deafness, as fat blocked his ear canals, leaving him struggling to walk more than a few steps. “Today he is a different dog and we call him Jumping Jack instead of Jumbo Jack, as he jumps everytime he barks now,” Ms Welsh said. “He is fit, healthy and happy, everything a pet should be, and we are absolutely thrilled.” Fifi Bottomley, a black and white female cat from Bradford, shed 2kg to be a healthier 7kg. The eight-year-old cat was rescued as a starving kitten by her first owner and her greedy nature is thought to be related to this early experience. The cat gorged on extra meals from neighbours and her growing appetite also encouraged her to steal bird food from the garden. Her weight ballooned until she was morbidly obese, but since dieting she is much more active and playful. Six-year-old cocker spaniel Billy’s huge bulk meant he struggled to climb stairs, but he has now shed 7kg to be a trim 17kg. Rabbit Bobby, a four-yearold mini-lop from Middlesbrough, stole her partner’s food rations and eventually the roll of skin under her chin grew so big she had difficulty grooming herself properly. She has gone from 2.4kg to 1.7kg – 29 per cent of her bodyweight. Bobby is now much more active and happier, her owner says.

Tyson says he wanted fair fight in NZ

Bilby’s Playgroup Open Day


Bathurst Bilby’s Play Group held its annual open day in August at the St Barnabas Church Hall in Bant Street. The Playgroup has been going strong for 30 years and is looking to fill some vacancies. With no shortage of toys, play-things and great company its no wonder generations keep coming back!

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is questioning the justice of his ban from New Zealand, saying he wanted a fair fight. Tyson was due to appear at the Day of the Champions motivational speaking event in Auckland next month but his special visitor’s visa was cancelled only days after being issued because of his rape conviction. In London on a promotional visit this weekend, Tyson said the New Zealand people had wanted him to come. “I just wanted to go down there and just have a show,” Tyson told Associated Press. “Unfortunately that had to happen – it’s one of those things in life that happens. It’s life on life’s terms and everyone has to deal with that and those uncertainties. “If it was a fair organisation, a fair fight I would be there, but I got vetoed by the higher power.” Tyson served three years in prison for the 1991 rape of an 18-year-old woman in an Indianapolis hotel room. He insisted the negative experiences in his life had shaped his character. “Anything that I would have got away from, being in prison, having fights, biting (Evander) Holyfield; (the) lack of that, my life would be miserable,” Tyson said as he launched a new range of boxing gear. The promoter for Tyson’s visit, Max Markson, has said he plans to re-apply for Tyson’s visa. “We are still selling tickets. I still hope to bring him to New Zealand. I sincerely hope the New Zealand government will reconsider and allow him into the country.”

The Bajan beauty boasted 61,617,468 likes, while Eminem was a close second with 61,269,210. Shakira is in third place with 54.8 million followers, Lady Gaga bags fourth place with 53.2 million and late singer Michael Jackson rounds out the top five celebrities on the site with 51.9 million fans.

It gives me full instructions, especially how to drive "It's thirty miles an hour", it says—"You're doing thirty five" It tells me when to stop and start and when to use the brake And tells me that it's never ever Safe to overtake It tells me when a light is red and when it goes to green It seems to know instinctively just when to intervene It lists the vehicles just in front and all those to the rear And taking this into account it specifies my gear. I'm sure no other driver has so helpful a device For when we leave and lock the car, it still gives its advice It fills me up with counselling, each journey's pretty fraught So why don't I exchange it and get a quieter sort? Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, makes sure I'm properly fed, It washes all my shirts and things and — keeps me warm in bed! Despite all these advantages and my tendency to scoff, I do wish that once in a while, I could turn the damned thing off.
