Young Hospital Auxiliary

MOTHER’S DAY STALL

D

ue to the terrible weather last Friday, the Hospital Auxiliary Stall could not be held outside in Boorowa Street and the Hospital Auxiliary are very grateful to Robert Donges who generously and graciously allowed them to conduct their Mother’s Day Stall in IGA. Young is very fortunate to have such a public spirited person as Robert, and they sincerely thank him. As a result of the day, $1,204 was raised from the sale of handwork, cooking, and plants and $475 from the sale of raffle tickets. This was in addition to $995 worth of raffle tickets that had already been sold in IGA.

Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets, and to the raffle donors The Loft, Poppa’s Fudge Factory, Powderly’s Pumping, Turners’ Furniture One, Regency Jewellers, Annie B’s Full House, Doreen Sheehy and the Auxiliary. The Auxiliary would also like to thank the members of the public who added to the collection of goodies for sale by donating plants, and all those who bought from the stall. They would also like to thank the radio stations for announcing the change of location. The Auxiliary put in a big effort to make the stall a success. Proceeds will purchase items for the hospital, including an alarm mat for patients at high risk of falls.

My three things that I can’t live without are the Ellia oil diffusers, the Breville Oracle Coffee Machine because every mum needs a coffee in the morning, and the Bosch Front Load Active Oxygen Washing Machine.

The HP Envy X360. It’s a 2 in 1 tablet and laptop. It’s versatile with the power of a laptop with a battery lasting up to 8 hours.

BOOROWA News..

From Hilltops Councillor CHRIS MANCHESTER

Boroowa Community Landcare Group

MEMBERS ACTIVITY Mason’s tree walk IMAGE: The transgrid tower at the top of Hawkhill.

O

n the morning of Saturday April 28, a small convoy of vehicles traversed ‘Hawkhill’ in what was a very successful Boorowa Landcare Members excursion to view a range of plantings spanning almost 35 years. Visitors then watched locally produced drone footage of past plantings in the Boorowa district and enjoyed a barbeque lunch supplied by the BCLG committee. Elizabeth and Peter Mason have a wealth of knowledge about tree establishment, largely based on trial and error over many decades. The group observed how active gully erosion had been effectively halted by soil conservation work including diversion banks, fencing out livestock and extensive tree planting. They were able to compare sites established by direct seeding and others by planting tube stock. “Although there have always been good numbers of paddock trees, there was only one very small patch of remnant veg on ‘Hawkhill’” said Elizabeth. Some of their earlier planting sites were part of a series of local ‘Saltshaker’ projects, designed to mitigate the effects of dryland salinity.  Although the Mason’s now buy commercially grown plants, Elizabeth had propagated a huge number of the plants herself. Her early successes and failures helped inform a variety of government bodies, as to what could grow in the Boorowa region.

IMAGE: Attendees viewing tree lane plantings.

A comparison of 2 adjoining sites planted exactly one year apart, with the same site preparation, highlighted the effect that variable weather conditions can have on revegetation efforts. In recent years Peter and Elizabeth have been hosts to North Sydney Bushcare group, who have assisted them with their planting. The most recent sites were planted in 2017. Hawkhill now has an extensive network of tree lanes offering habitat for wildlife and protection to livestock in almost every paddock. A drive to the top of Hawkhill (a Transgrid tower), provided a wonderful view of the extent and connectivity of plantings on Hawkhill, neighbouring properties and across the region in general. If you have some historic plantings or landcare activities you would like to share for a tour, please contact landcare@boorowa.net or call 0459 681018.

Hilltops Council have just engaged a consultancy firm from Orange to put together a Precinct Plan for Murrumburrah. The idea is to revamp Murrumburrah Precinct and make it more attractive to the significant passing tourism trade. The plan will link Roberts Park area, Murrumboola Creek and the business area together, as well as the Light Horse Memorial, Museum and the proposed Bill the Bastard statue. Sala4D the organisation engaged will be in town on the 30th and 31st May to hold a series of meetings and workshops to get public input into the plan. I encourage all interested residents and businesses to get involved and have their say and input into this very important document, which could have a major impact on the future development of Historical Murrumburrah. The Hilltops Council have allocated $1,100,000 of Stronger Communities grant funding towards this project, which I hope will transform Murrumburrah in the same way as the upgrade of Neil Street in Harden did a few years ago. So again, please get involved. The Council is currently working on the Long Term Financial Plan for the Hilltops Region, which encompasses the 12-month Budget (Operational Plan), the Delivery Program, a 4-year plan and the 10-year Community Strategic Plan. This is the first budget that Councillors will put together for Hilltops. The importance of this is that it sets the direction of Council over the next few years. How you start will impact on where you finish and all Councillors are committed to the future of the Hilltops Council and to turn it into a regional leader in NSW local government. You will see significant changes to how the old Councils of Harden, Boorowa and Young operated, but Hilltops is a new organisation and changes have to be made to make us financially sound for the future. When the Operational Plan goes on public display, please take time to have a look at it and make comments.

INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY – 56 Caple Street, Young Gilt edged dual occupancy investment proposition with both home and modern villa unit Currently both premises are rented - double income from just one property Main residence is a 3 bedroom co†age with the villa being 2 bedrooms Located close to hospital, schools, TAFE and Catholic church with the CBD just a short walk away

Parents and future students got to see first-hand the learning spaces and how they are used day to day, as well as learn of all the activities the school has on offer, such as sports, public speaking, the school choir and formal music lessons. Trinity will be holding a Kindergarten 2019 information evening later in the year on the 15th of November.

HARDEN PHARMACY

F

lu season is fast approaching, so now is the time to protect yourself by heading into the Harden Pharmacy and getting the flu shot. The flu shot works by causing antibodies to develop within the body, which provide protection against infection from the virus strains contained in the vaccine. There are a variety of reasons people are being encouraged to go and get their flu shot. Apart from the obvious of avoiding the unpleasant symptoms of the flu, getting the shot will strengthen your immunity and also help to prevent others from getting sick, minimizing the spread of illness. It will also help to avoid some of the pitfalls of coming down with the flu; getting a doctor’s appointment can be difficult during the flu season, as there is a large increase in people requiring appointments. The time you take on sick leave from work can be reduced, making that time available when needed on other occasions. It is also a much lower cost to get the vaccine than it is to treat the flu when you take into consideration all the costs required for treatment. The older generation are particularly encouraged to get the vaccine, as they are especially prone to being hospitalized from the flu. The flu vaccine is usually $24.99, but if you mention the ad we have run in the Phoenix, you can receive it for $19.99. Harden Pharmacy is at 66 Neill Street, Harden and open for the flu shot Monday – Saturday. Monday – Friday hours are 9am5.30pm and Saturday is 9am-12pm.

McCORMACK SECURES FUNDING For Rural Medical School In Wagga Wagga

A ONCE-IN-A-GENERATION boost to health care for rural and regional Australians in the Riverina and Central West has been delivered by The Nationals’ Member for Riverina Michael McCormack, with the announcement in last week’s Federal Budget of funding for the establishment of a rural medical school in Wagga Wagga. The Nationals’ Leader and Deputy Prime Minister said he was extremely proud to be able to deliver a significant investment to residents in the Riverina and Central West. The Government will invest $95.4 million to establish a Murray-Darling Medical School Network to support end-to-end training for rural students to study medicine in the regions. In addition to the University of NSW (Wagga Wagga), the Murray-Darling Medical Schools Network includes University of Sydney (Dubbo), Charles Sturt University/Western Sydney University (Orange), Monash University (Bendigo, Mildura); and University of Melbourne/ La Trobe University (Shepparton, Bendigo, Wodonga). Mr McCormack said the Wagga Wagga region has been well served by rural clinical schools established by the University of New South Wales (2000) and the University of Notre Dame (2011), but the regions still needed more doctors. “Now is the time for a dedicated medical school, based in the regions, where doctors can train from start to finish in a regional or rural area and residents in those areas get the health care they deserve,” Mr McCormack said. “Research shows if we train – from start to finish – more doctors in the bush we can attract more people who will want to make the regions their home. Those people will be more likely to meet their life partners – as so many do during study – and establish a base in the country. We have recognised a maldistribution in doctor supply and tonight’s announcement

in the 2018 Federal Budget will go a long way to address this. Mr McCormack said the Government understood the needs of regional and rural Australia. “We are elected to speak up for the people who do not have the access to a doctor they deserve,” Mr McCormack said. “That’s why the Government has invested significantly to address the disparity in health care between metropolitan areas and rural and regional Australia. A medical school in Wagga Wagga will allow student doctors to have start-to-finish training in a country centre. Research shows if you train someone locally, they are more likely to stay in those areas and contribute positively to the local community. Mr McCormack has been a fierce advocate of addressing the maldistribution of doctors into rural and regional Australia since he entered politics in 2010 and said the medical school funding announcement would help address shortfalls in smaller communities in the Riverina and Central West. “Soon after my election to Parliament I got together a group of local doctors, community leaders and specialists who wanted to be part of the solution in the Riverina region,” Mr McCormack said. Mr McCormack has worked with the Rural Medical School Implementation

Committee, which he established in 2011, to push the case for a medical school in Wagga Wagga. Hilltops Mayor Brian Ingram delighted with the announcement of the Murray Darling Medical School. Mayor Ingram says the 2018 Budget announcement this week of the Murray Darling Medical School was great news for communities in the Hilltops region. Central NSW Councils (CENTROC) have being a strong supporter of the Murray Darling Medical School for some time. ‘’The fact is we have challenging health outcomes and doctor to patient ratios in our region and we know that the Murray Darling Medical School model will work,’’ Mayor Ingram said. Mayors in the CENTROC area believe the current model does not work for smaller communities. “The most remote and least wealthy communities have spent decades offering cars and houses, building medical centres and the like. Despite years of being promised a tsunami of Australian trained doctors, this has never materialized.” “This region has been a resounding supporter of growing our own health workforce, particularly our own medical workforce, this week’s budget announcement will allow a better and sustainable approach to training doctors, nurses and allied health.” “Our Councils look forward to working with the Murray Darling Medical School Network to encourage all our local health services to prioritise training capacity for rural medical graduates who are the most likely to remain in rural practices like the research suggests.’’ ‘’We commend the Government for delivering this package for our communities especially our Federal members in our region who we know have been advocating strongly.” Mayor Ingram said.

Expression of Interest – Community After Suicide Support and Response Strategy Wellways would like to invite stakeholders, community members and organisations to participate in the development of an after suicide response strategy that will help us as community members support those in our community who are suicide bereaved. Often the community feels helpless following a death by suicide and sometimes those who have experienced the loss need a little extra support during a time of confusion and sadness, so this strategy will help guide stakeholders and the community to provide

appropriate and timely responses during a time of need. If you would like to be involved and feel that you have something to offer,your involvement is welcome. Details for the initial planning meeting are detailed below: Date: 18/05/2018 Time: 5.00pm to 7.00pm Venue: Young Town Hall Facilitators: Jenna Roberts (Manager of Suicide Prevention for Life Span), Rebecca Roberson (Team Leader Murrumbidgee Suicide

Prevention for Wellways), Donna McGuire (Support Coordinator for Murrumbidgee Suicide Prevention for Wellways) If you would like additional information, to have input into the strategy but cannot attend, or would like to register your interest, please contact Support Coordinator Donna McGuire: Support Coordinator, Murrumbidgee Suicide Prevention Ph 0418 421 310 E dmcguire@wellways.org

Autumn Leaves

With the arrival of the cooler weather we are finally starting to see some spectacular Autumn foliage. The change in leaf colour is all due to a chemical process which takes place as the seasons change. During the warmer months, the leaves have played an important part in providing all the trees food for its growth. This food production process is happening in all cells of the leaf including the chlorophyll cells – these are the cells that give the leaf its green colour. Also, within the leaf there are other pigments that are yellow or orange, however during the warmer months their colour is hidden by the larger number of green chlorophyll cells. When the Autumn weather starts, the tree’s food making process stops due to the cooler temperatures and lower amounts of sunlight. The green chlorophyll cells in the leaves start to break down unmasking the other pigments in the leaves of yellow and orange. Also, at this time other chemical changes in the leaf happen which then causes other colours to develop within the leaves such as purple and red. The spectrum of colours you see in the leaves vary from tree to tree due to the varying amounts of the chlorophyll residue and other pigments in the leaf. The Autumn colour will also be affected by the water supply, temperatures and amount of light each tree will receive. A period of dry weather through Summer will delay the arrival of Autumn colours. If we have a warm rainy start to Autumn, then the Autumn colours will be lower in intensity. A severe frost will kill off the leaves causing them to drop early. The best conditions for spectacular Autumn foliage is a warm, wet spring followed by a summer that’s not too hot or dry, and then an Autumn with plenty of warm sunny days and cool nights.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has announced free specialist perinatal psychological counselling via video call for parents in the electorate who are affected by perinatal depression and anxiety (PNDA). The Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro and Minister for Mental Health Tanya Davies last week attended the official launch of Gidget Foundation Australia’s Start Talking program in Sydney and announced $270,000 in NSW Government funding to support the initiative. ‘Gidget’ was the nickname of a young mother who took her own life while suffering from unrecognised postnatal depression. Family and friends established the foundation in 2001, which has grown to assist thousands of expectant parents and their families each year. Ms Cooke said it can be difficult to access mental health support services when living in remote and regional areas and the NSW Government is committed to changing that. “Families in remote areas don’t always have the same access to mental health services as those in the cities, and that is why the Start Talking program is so important - to assist parents living in regional areas like the Cootamundra electorate who may be in need of psychological support,” Ms Cooke said. Perinatal Depression and Anxiety (PNDA) is a condition commonly experienced by women during pregnancy and the year following the birth of a baby. New fathers are also vulnerable to PNDA. Mrs Davies said the NSW Government funding will help facilitate up to seven onehour video call sessions per client with a trained psychologist, as part of the client’s GP-referred Mental Health Plan. For more information please visit www. gidgetfoundation.org.au or telephone 1300 851 758. If you or someone you know needs crisis support, please call Lifeline 13 11 14 or MensLine Australia 1300 78 99 78. For mental health services visit your GP or phone the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.

HILLTOPS REGION SPORT

HARDEN GOLF NEWS Jeanette Elliott 2018 Champion The Lady Members have just concluded their 2018 Championships brought to them by the GO Kruger Trust, and Jeanette Elliott has continued her march in a string of career victories that will probably never be beaten in the future of Harden Golf. Jeanette has come out the back end of 3 rounds of Championships with 77 – 82 – 80 = 159 off the stick which equates to 7 under her handicap over the total of 3 rounds. This is incredible golf from the long term Club Champion who is still a considerable way ahead of the remaining field with her game at present. Well done with the 2018 Championship. Considering Jeanette’s form and dominance, the field were left to compete for the next most prestigious event in the Club being the Ness Flanery Tray for the best nett result after handicap. Whilst Jeanette’s feats normally go a long way to claiming both pieces of silverware, surprising form was shown by Toni Filmer to put 3 very consistent rounds into play to eek out this event by a mere 1 shot after handicap to win this event over Jeanette. The final round was conducted also as an individual day event, where Evelyn Shea has taken the goodies with another fine round of 85/70. Evelyn has played at or below her rapidly tumbling handicap in at least her last 5 rounds, and no doubt will continue to feature through the rest of the year. Runner Up on the day and claiming a ball was Jeanette Elliott with 80/72 and then followed by Toni Filmer who posted her 3rd round as a 93/73. Ash Hall Brains them in May Medal Brett Johnson was the kind sponsor at Golf last week and they thank him for 3 great trophies to reward the event winner and both the A & B Scratch Winners. Brett’s support of Harden Golf is resoundingly acknowledged. This week the Medal Field was back to a good size and bringing out the big guns was Ashley Hall. Winning the day’s event, and the B Grade Medal with a great score that saw him record a 66 nett or 5 whole shots

under his handicap. Ashley picked up the daily trophy from the sponsor. Winner of the A Grade Medal and A Grade Scratch Trophy was Matt Peisley with a round of 76 (5 over par) with a nett of 67, a mere 1 shot back from our winner of the day’s event. Winner of the B Grade Scratch Trophy after Ashley picked up the Main Trophy, was Chris Hocking who recorded 88 off the beater. The balls for the day went back to 1 over par nett 72 and were awarded to Tim Davis (69), Tim Beveridge (70), Darrell Cassidy (71), Chris Hocking (71) and Eric Kuhn (72). The Bendigo Bank Hole in One Prize did not go off again this week, however the nearest to the pin went to Craig Henman with 5.51m. The lucky draw for the box of brown sandwiches went to Craig Filmer on a card draw by the press representative. Ron Fuller Snr - Midweek Master In a low scoring affair from the field of 15 this week, you only needed to play to your handicap to win. Surprisingly only 1 man could do this and it was Ron Fuller Snr with 24 points for the 12 hole stableford layout. Whilst Ron did not break handicap, the powers that be pulled out rule 376(b)(vii) that causes a par winner to be deducted 1 shot for his/her effort. So it was and so it is for Ron who will resume duties this week on a new handicap of 16.5 after the deduction. Runner up on the midweek shenanigans this week was David James who recorded 23 points, whilst 3rd place was shared honours between Greg Heycox, Bill Kildea and Herb Manwaring, all on 22 points. Handicap Pennants Team The Captain, Craig Filmer is looking for players wishing to be selected and lay for the Handicap Pennants Team. Round 1 is on Sunday 27 May 2018 at 10am in Gundagai against Gundagai. Please call Craig on 0466 722 868 or contact at alby2594@ gmail.com. A team needs to be selected this Saturday so people can plan their schedules around the Sunday games. They are defending SWDGA Pennant Holders and back to back would be the ultimate defence of the title.

For male bowlers there was no play on Thursday due to the very cold and wet weather. Conditions were better on Saturday afternoon although the wind was quite chilly. On Saturday in a semi–final of the Club Singles Peter Watts defeated Russell Boyd 31–13. The first half of the game was evenly contested with Peter leading 14–12 after 13 ends. From that point Peter dominated the scoring to qualify for the final. He will play Damien Miller in the final on Saturday afternoon. There were 14 other players involved on Jackpot Bowls on Saturday. The winning teams and their margins were Darryle Miller and Peter Slater (6 shots), Kevin Bryant and Vic Brown (6 shots) and Peter Berry, Ian Schofield and Ged Hardman (3 shots). After a count–back the Penrose Funerals sponsored vouchers went to Darryle and Peter. Ten players were involved on Sunday morning. The winning team with the very good score of 16 points consisted of Ann Gardner and Albert Carter. During the week Damien Miller played in the NSW Greenkeeper’s Championships at Ballina. Damien lost a quarter–final of the Singles by just one shot (25–24) and he and Rod Crean from the Lawson club were beaten in a semi– final of the Pairs. Good luck to Geoff Holt and Peter Watts who will be members of the Zone 8 Seniors side playing in the Inter–Zone Championships at Figtree Bowling Club on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. In addition to the final of the Club Singles to be played on Saturday there are several games of Club pairs scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. All the details are on the notice–board. All players are reminded to check the notice board for information about the 2 Bowl Triples Tournament to be held on 2nd and 3rd June. Entries close on Saturday and any players who are not currently in a team but would like to play should speak to Joe Bargwanna or Cliff Traynor by Saturday. Those members and guests who had Mother’s Day dinner at the club on Sunday evening enjoyed the singing of Luke Dickens.
