Fernhill to Host Melbourne Cup 133 years after Fernhill produced the legendary horse ‘Grand Flaneur’, winner of the 1880 Melbourne Cup, the iconic trophy is returning the Estate on Wednesday 2 October as part of the Emirates Melbourne Cup Trophy Tour. Fernhill is one of only three NSW host destinations on the Cup’s Tour around Australia in the lead up to the “Race that Stops a Nation”. Fernhill is working with the Penrith Valley Chamber of Commerce, Penrith CBD Corporation and Penrith Paceway to ensure maximum community involvement and opportunities for the people of Mulgoa, Penrith and Western Sydney to share in this unique experience. The days’ schedule includes a breakfast at Fernhill followed by a parade through the Paceway Markets, a display in the Paceway SkyLounge, lunch at Memory Park, and a charity function at Fernhill in the evening. In addition, in the lead up to the Melbourne Cup Tour on 2 October, Fernhill will host five local schools for ‘A Day on the Farm’ at Fernhill between 9-13 September (one school per day). Students will learn the history of the region, the Cox family, Fernhill and The Cup. They will experience a working equestrian farm including a farrier, horse dentist, groomer and trainer. The school visit program has received generous support

• • • • • •

from the community, with local community groups such as Mulgoa Rotary, Nepean Athletics Association and the Lions Club to provide sausage sizzle lunches for the kids while NSW TAFE (Richmond branch) will provide instructors and horse care demonstrations. Fernhill has also launched the “Fernhill Melbourne Cup Art Competition” open to primary and high school students. This artwork is part of the display at the Paceway on 2 October where the winners will be announced and the winning schools can win up to $2,000. Fernhill CEO Brenda Tripp said that the announcement of the Melbourne Cup Trophy Visit to Fernhill was the start of an exciting period for the historic Fernhill Estate. “It will be the first time Australia’s most iconic trophy will visit the Penrith district and we are delighted for Fernhill to be one of the hosts,” Ms Tripp said. “The Cup visit is one of a number of exciting new events being planned for this spring. We can’t wait for this breathtaking property to showcased to the local community.” For more information, visit r Preparing for the Cup L to R – Jill Woods – Penrith Valley Chamber of Commerce, Brenda Tripp – Fernhill Estate, Tom Mc Dermott – Australia’s number one Show Jumper – Fernhill Estate, Zineta de Beer - Fernhill Estate, Lorraine Pozzo – Penrith Paceway, Gai Hawthorn – Penrith CBD Photo courtesy of Angie Johnson

Minister Matt Olliffe • Anglican Parish of Mulgoa • Phone: 4774 0422 • Mobile: 0401 958 161 Sunday Church times: 8:30am & 6.45pm St Thomas’ Mulgoa. 10:30am St Paul’s Warragamba.

What would you say to Prime Minister Rudd? If you had a minute to have a conversation with the PM, what would you talk about? Australia is an amazing country where you can walk up to the Prime Minister and have a chat. Kevin Rudd was down at Westfield Plaza electioneering recently, so I went to talk to him. I had about a minute with him, the cameras rolling. I wanted to talk to Mr Rudd about his support of gay marriage, to which I am opposed. He sent out an email saying he will attempt to change the definition of marriage in his first 100 days office. This is quite an about face from his position in 2007. I first of all said that I was a local Anglican Minister, and that I wanted Mr Rudd to know that we were praying for him AND for Mr Abbott. The sound in the ABC Report’s Audio noticeably dropped out when I said ‘um and Mr Abbott’. The second thing I said was that we were very concerned about the Gay Marriage proposal. Mr Rudd said that there will be protections for Ministers of Religion. I then told him I have a number of friends who are civil celebrants and Christians, and they are likewise concerned. Mr Rudd said that no one need be concerned with this legislation. However, I believe that Mr Rudd’s assurances cannot be relied on, because no politician cannot control who decides to ask for gay marriage in church, or who wishes to test the legislation in the courts. The Church of England, which received similar assurances, is currently facing litigation for not marrying gay couples ( news/article-2383686/Millionaire-gay-fathers-sue-ChurchEngland-allowing-married-church.html). In the US, florists, photographers and caterers have been sued for not wishing to service a gay wedding. Gay rights activists talk about a conscience vote in parliament. But they have no problems imposing on other’s consciences when they get what the

legislative changes they want. Gay marriage legislation won’t end the fights. There will be a whole round of new fights. During our brief discussion, Mr Rudd revealed that he believed that there are many ways to God. While I didn’t say this at the time, I think Mr Rudd needs to know that in John 14:6 Jesus said ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’ and in Acts 4:12, Peter said ‘there is only one name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.’ Everyone has freedom of religion, that is one thing. It is another thing for a professing Christian to say that there are many ways to God. The Bible does not teach this. The thing I did make sure I said was something like ‘As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, can I urge you to read Matthew 19:4-5 where Jesus says ‘A man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ and ‘in the beginning God made them male and female.’ Mr Rudd responded something to the effect that there are different understandings of the bible. True, but not all are correct. People twist the bible to their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16). The New Testament specifically says that gay sex is sinful and those who live that way will not inherit the kingdom of God (Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). The good news is that there is forgiveness of sin for all who trust in Jesus Christ, no matter what their past looks like (Romans 4:1-8; 10:9-10). Gay marriage is a God issue. If there is no God, and we are just evolutionary accidents, gay marriage, group marriage, bigamy, polygamy, polyandry, a parent marrying an adult child, should all be allowed. Only that would be truly equal marriage. Anything else is discrimination. Other more bizarre things would follow. It would be equal, but chaos. But if God has made us, and spoken about the way we should live (as I believe he has), our society will do best when we follow his rules. Matt Olliffe Minister, Anglican Parish of Mulgoa

Hangar Renovation We are asking for your assistance in refurbishing our transit area into a welcoming space for our families. A renovation rescue you could say… Little Wings Australia is a not-for-profit charity, providing an exceptional service to regional NSW families. Little Wings relies on support through corporate sponsorship as well as the community to keep the plane in the air, transporting children in need to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead for treatment. Children diagnosed with a serious illness and living far from specialised medical treatment in NSW face bigger challenges than their city counterparts – family cohesiveness is affected, and a child and parent often face repetitive long, arduous travel to and from country locations for treatment in Sydney. Little Wings not only makes the physical journey easier for these families, but also helps them financially, emotionally and lessens the health risks to the child as having an immunosuppressed child exposed to viruses on public transport trips can have terrible outcomes. What we need is for the community to assist us with transforming our waiting area at our hangar located at Bankstown airport into a pleasant, exciting and uplifting space for our patients. A place they can relax whilst we get the Little Wings plane ready for their Journey home. Somewhere mum and dad can relax and have a cup of tea or coffee while the kids are entertained in a play area. The waiting area is only 30m2. If you are a tradie or business that could give a little to help kids with cancer please consider coming on board and working together with us to achieve this goal. We will need: • Painter & paint to brighten up the interior finishes. • Signage for our hangar • Wall or window air-conditioned • Safety barriers for walkway into hangar to keep the kids safe • New carpet supplied and laid 30m2 • Furniture – couches and coffee table • Small Fridge and basic Kitchen items E.g. Coffee Machine • Toys, books & play mat for the kids If you can assist with our renovation or are a business that would like to donate some items, please contact us. We will have a great time putting this together for the kids of Little Wings Australia.

Pool Makeover! Repainting and routine Winter maintenance work has now been completed at Wollondilly Community Leisure Centre’s Outdoor Pool and Warragamba Pool in preparation for the summer period. Picton Pool was last repainted and repaired in 2008. The significant repair work completed at that stage has left the concrete pool in good condition for the repainting that has just been completed. So this year very few repairs were required prior to painting. A concrete pool structure generally needs to be repainted every three years however because of the good condition of the pool the repainting wasn’t required until now. The preparation for painting involved a soap wash to remove body fats, suntan oils followed by an acid wash, then bicarbonate wash in order to neutralise the acid and finally a high pressure blast of the surface. The pool was then applied with then 3 coats of Epoxy Resin (Pacific Blue) and the lanes were marked out and 3 coats of Epoxy Resin (Black) applied. The total cost for the work was $47,300. Warragamba Pool did not require any repairs prior to repainting. However there were some other remedial works carried at the facility during this time which were funded by SRV funding and include painting of the change rooms and first aid room floors with non-slip paint, replacement of sand filter lids and the replacement of the filter sand and the installation of 25mm weld mesh on all lower areas of safety fencing to ensure compliance with current regulations. The cost for Warragamba Pool including the remedial works was $ 21,500. Both pools will be ready for use after the September/October school holiday period.

Pastor Uel Beggs • Warragamba Baptist Church • Phone: 4774 1476 • • Sunday Morning Service at 9.30 am

A Christian Chat with Pastor Ron Baker As I reflect on Father’s Day just gone, I am reminded of the many sons and daughters who remembered their dads. For sure they did it in a variety of ways, however I am sure also that most of us who are fathers were reminded that the raising of our children is one of the most important things we will ever do. Now, we all know that in the raising of our children there are certain responsibilities that fathers have to carry out. The bible tells us that the greatest is for his children’s faith. To be sure fathers are the breadwinners in the home, they must provide for their children’s material needs. But fathers must also be concerned about their children’s knowledge of God. Indeed to teach their children about God, fathers have to have a living faith in God themselves. I am sure that we are all aware that we are now going through a crisis concerning fathers and fathering. Over ninety percent of single-parent families today are headed by women. Obviously many fathers have no interest in their offspring. They are perfectly willing to father their children biologically, but they want little to do with them after they are conceived and born. The prevalence of abortion these days too, is an appalling indictment of today’s fathers. We talk a lot about freedom of choice in connection with abortion, but often a woman feels forced to get an abortion because the father of her foetal child wants it. As I look at the situation of our modern society, I can see that many fathers are not doing very well these days. Could it be because they do not believe in God and his bible? Many

believe nothing so they have nothing to give their children. If you are a father and you feel you have been a failure, may I encourage you to find out about God and then discover how to have faith in God. Indeed God will enable you to be the kind of father he wants you to be. A father’s faith is the most important thing about him. Psalm 78 tells us about communication. It tells how God expects fathers not to hide facts from their children that are extremely important. The greatest thing you will ever do for your children is communicate the Christian faith to them. Psalm 78 says that children should be taught the great deeds of God and the laws of God. Fathers can begin this in the home and their wives can help them in this great work but fathers must also make sure their family is part of a church where the deeds and laws of God are regularly examined and proclaimed. A father’s son is his image bearer. The stamp a father puts on his child is one that is transmitted not only by genetics, but also by a child learning his father’s way of living. Pastor Ron Baker

Bloomin’ Spectacular! Spring is a wonderful time to visit the lovely Blue Mountains and a major seasonal attraction is The Leura Gardens Festival from 5th to 13th October. A selection of Leura’s finest private gardens will be open to the public giving visitors an opportunity to view and meander through a variety of gardening styles designed specifically for the cool climate conditions in the upper Blue Mountains. Iris, daffodils, anemones and tulips amongst many others, present an exciting mix of colour and interest for garden lovers. Many of the gardens in Leura are well known for magnificent spring displays of cool climate exotics such as rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas and hellebores. Following favourable weather conditions over the last several years this year will be no exception. For visitors wanting tips and advice they will find that many of the friendly garden owners are on hand to answer questions and offer guidance. Festival 2013 will have nine private gardens on show as well as the magnificent National Trust Property ‘Everglades’. The sprawling grounds of ‘Everglades’ make the property an ideal place to take a breather for a refreshment break or picnic in the extensive grounds. The Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort made its debut in the Festival last year and this extensive property promises to provide visitors with yet another visual feast of colour and variety. The Waldorf is also a popular refreshment venue with teas, lunches and afternoon teas served in The Olive Tree Restaurant. Two of past years favourites are also returning to the festival this year. The lovely garden of Ewanriig, adjacent to the picturesque Leura Golf course, and Wai-Ila which successfully combines creative ideas with clever planning. The Leura gardens have all been selected to provide visitors with a wide cross section of gardening styles. Other gardens in the line up are Davaar, Rustlings, Brabourne, DeadEnd House, Tandella and for the last time on the show the very popular garden Shenstone, where a marquee will be erected to provide daily music programmes and a two day series of horticultural events to be held on Wednesday 9th and 10th October. The events programme ‘Under the Marquee’ will feature a series of talks and workshops conducted by noted gardening experts. The programme will cover subjects such as pruning, growing lawns, worm farming, sustainable gardening and more. The Festival nursery selling a wide variety of both native and exotic plants at great prices has also been a favourite with visitors and this year should be no exception. The nursery will be in Watkins Road next to the golf course. Opening 5th and running to 13th October festival gardens are open 9.30am to 4.30pm daily. Entry is $20 for an all gardens ticket and $5 per single entry. The Leura Gardens Festival is a community event run by over 300 local volunteers and all funds raised are donated to the Blue Mountains District Anzac Memorial Hospital to purchase vital equipment as well as funding for other local medical foundations.

COUNSELLING CORNER with Linda Cassell @ Psychology Works 4 All Phone 4773 3057 or 0421 507 191 email Confusion about responsibility and ownership in our lives is a problem of boundaries. Just as homeowners set fences (a boundary) around their land, we need to set mental, physical and emotional boundaries for our lives to help us distinguish what is our responsibility and what isn’t. Boundaries define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows me where I end and someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership of my life. Boundaries also show us what is not our property and what we are not responsible for. We are not responsible for other people. The most basic boundary setting rule is saying ‘no’. ‘No’ let’s others know that you exist apart from them and that you are in control of you. People subject to another person’s addictions, control or abuse find that after years of waiting for the person to change, create a boundary which in effect is limiting that persons control over them. Effectively a good boundary gives then the freedom to say … ’you can continue on with your (bad) behaviour but I will not let that behaviour have a negative impact on my life. We say ‘no’ to people and activities that are harmful to us. In the end we are only responsible for our own behaviour, our own choices, our own life. The only person we can change is our self. Good boundaries are essential to good mental health. Feelings of anger and frustration are good indicators that our personal boundaries have been breached.

PARENTS’ CORNER Article by: Narelle Smith (Family Worker) NepeanStudent-Wellbeing Worker – Mulgoa Public School Nepean Community & Neighbourhood Services Ph: 0409 986 121 Centre: 4721 8520 Blog:

Do you do Time-Out at your place? Although Dr Matt Sanders from Triple P advises that Time-Out is a positive strategy for parents, Time-Out has been receiving a bad rap in the parent education field the past few years. And foster carers are not allowed to use Time-Out at all any more. There are a few good things about it… - It gives parents an alternative to smacking and yelling. - It gives kids and parents a chance to cool down. - In Triple P, time-out lasts no longer than five minutes, and five minutes in the life of a child is not a lot. - At the end of time-out, you get on with things – no lectures, recriminations, or apologies. The child has done the time for their crime, end of story. However, based on the latest findings in brain development, when Time-Out is used with young children we are asking them to do something which scientists say they are not yet capable of doing – calming or soothing themselves. It is better for young children, to have their parents help organise their feelings by acknowledging and labelling their feelings, and soothing them with calming words and touch. In the Circle of Security parenting course, this is called being Bigger, Stronger, Wiser, and Kind. The thing about Time-Out is that it is very addictive for parents because it works so very well. The problem with using Time-Out a lot is that it is a big disconnect in the parent-child relationship, and children don’t learn very much from it. They don’t learn the skills to resolve conflict. They don’t learn to calm themselves in situ. They don’t learn relationship repair. Part of our job as parents is to give our kids skills that they can take into adolescence and adulthood so they can be competent citizens, good friends, and caring, supportive, and nurturing partners and parents. I just don’t think Time-Out provides the goods in that department. I’ve seen plenty of angry and resentful kids who have spent a lot of time in Time-Out, because every time they look the wrong way they are sent off to their room. And they frequently don’t have a good relationship with their folks. A little bit of Time-Out is OK. A whole lot of Time-Out is going to backfire on you in the long run - you’ll be wondering why your kids are so surly. Quite often, Time-Out is used by parents because they don’t have the capacity to control themselves. The very thing they are asking their children to do. Some parents I have worked with who have problems controlling their anger, give themselves a Time-Out. They tell their kids that they need to go and calm down, and they will come back to repair the relationship when they are feeling better. This is a lot better than ‘losing it’, blaming it on the kids, and regretting the things we have said and done to hurt our kids. I believe Time-Out is the discipline of last resort. At my place, I only use Time-Out for what I call ‘crimes against humanity’, that is being hurtful, violent, or aggressive. There are so many more positive parenting strategies that you can use to guide and educate your kids.

The Country Market Day, held at Mulgoa Public School on Sunday, 25th August turned out to be a spectacular day. The small school raised nearly $12,000 to help provide more iPads and other resources for the children to enhance their educational learning. A special thank you to the sponsors of our event who helped raise this incredible amount. Thanks to the wonderful support of our Community who made this day such a great success. Also all our volunteers, teachers, parents, Mulgoa Rotary and the Gazette. We couldn't have done it without you all.

Australia’s London Olympic silver medallist Jessica Fox has become the first woman to win gold in both the C1 and K1 events at the same World Cup. It was a historic moment for the 19-year-old Australian who held her nerves to execute a clean run under enormous mental pressure to secure her first K1 World Cup victory in Tacen, Slovenia. Jessica created history in becoming the first female athlete to complete the double, winning gold in the both the C1 and K1 disciplines at one World Cup. In the same event in which she won silver at last year’s Olympic Games, Fox improved on her semi-final time to win in 117.60, 0.34 seconds ahead of Austrian star Corinna Kuhnle. Local favourite Eva Tercelj took bronze 1.77 seconds behind Fox. “I am very happy to win my first World Cup medal in K1 and to do the double on Tacen is really special,” said Fox. Meanwhile, in Slovakia, Jessica’s sister Noemie Fox teamed up with Alexandra Broome and Georgia Rankin to win the World Junior Canoe Slalom at the 2013 World Canoe Championships at Liptopsky Mikular.

RSPCA Cupcake Day a Huge Success

We hosted the RSPCA Cupcake Day on Monday 19th August 2013. Thank you to everyone who came in and donated and ate a cupcake or two. We raised $600.00 for the RSPCA with your help. Erin, Belinda, Eden, Kirsti, Liz and Kristie cooked up a storm and provided the most delicious cupcakes, cookies, cake balls and a very cute cake decorated as a dog. The Pupcakes were a huge hit and were made from the Hills zd science diet baked into cookies and iced with peanut butter. Pony and Bella loved eating the Pupcakes! Thanks again for supporting a great cause! The RSPCA is the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a nonprofit, community based charity that works to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. The RSPCA is not an agency of the Australian Government and therefore relies on the generosity of the community – through animal adoptions, volunteering, event participation, donations, fundraising, corporate partnerships, corporate support, bequests and grants – to support its vital daily work.

Kitten Adoption – Adopt a Friend for Life!

Our Kitten Adoption Program enables us to find homes for stray and unwanted kittens. Each kitten has a health check by Camille and Erin. They have had all the kitten vaccinations, are desexed, microchipped and have a product called Advocate applied, which controls fleas, intestinal worms and heartworm. We also worm them for tapeworms. We have 2 male kittens that are 7 months of age. They are very dog friendly and playful. Contact us if you know anyone that can provide a new home.

We Are Finalists in the Penrith City Local Business Awards We are finalists in the 2013 Penrith City Local Business Awards.Yay!We will be going to the awards dinner in late September. Our fingers are crossed!
