The aim of the program was to promote safety to people who visited beaches. Statistics showed that people who live 50km or more away from the Coast account for half of all drownings and that 80 per cent of problems are caused by rips, according to Ocean Beach club publicity officer Ms Louise Lambeth.

A council environmental health officer attended the site to investigate and issued a direction to the owner to ensure all damaged and exposed asbestos was covered or sealed and to have a licensed asbestos contractor remove all loose, damaged and exposed asbestos. The tenant’s mother, Ms Genevieve Rose, told Peninsula News that her brother, a builder, had found asbestos scattered around the house during the renovations. She said: “There were no safety precautions taken, no safety wear or ventilation mask, no safety gloves and no warning to anyone who entered the property.” She said that she called the real estate agent to warn them. The council’s environmental health co-ordinator Mr Shannon McKiernan said: “If the owner doesn’t comply with the notice of intent, an order will be served

requiring them to do the work. “If they still don’t comply, Council will undertake the works at the owner’s expense.” He said the council also had the option to proceed with court action. The notice gave the owner seven days to secure the site and to engage an appropriately licensed contractor. It allowed additional time for the contractor to complete the work. Mr McKiernan said a person could only do their own renovating work where the area of asbestos was under 10 square metres. As a result of the incident, the council has announced it will partner with the Asbestos Diseases Research Institute as part of a week-long national campaign to highlight the dangers of asbestos related diseases caused by inhaling asbestos fibres while renovating or maintaining homes. “Don’t play Renovation Roulette” is the message that Gosford Council, the Asbestos Diseases Research Institute and the Asbestos Education Committee is sending to residents and ratepayers during national Asbestos Awareness Week which runs from November 26 to 30.

“With the number of people diagnosed with mesothelioma as a direct result of exposure to asbestos during home renovations continuing to rise, it’s vital that residents take the warnings seriously to protect themselves and their families,” mayor Cr McKinna said. The national campaign, supported by the Asbestos Education Committee, aims to change the way Australian’s think about how they manage asbestos in and around the home. Asbestos Education Committee chair Mr Peter Dunphy said whether a home is constructed of brick, fibro and weatherboard or has exterior cladding, asbestos can be found almost everywhere in and around homes built or renovated before the mid 80s. “Most people can’t tell whether building materials contain asbestos just by looking at them. “Asbestos can be under floor coverings such as carpets, linoleum and vinyl tiles, behind wall and floor tiles, in cement floors, internal and external walls, ceilings, eaves, garages, around hot water pipes, fences, extensions to homes, outdoor toilets and backyard sheds, it could be anywhere.

“Before commencing any home maintenance or renovation work, homeowners and renovators, particularly young couples and first home buyers excited about renovating their homes, need to learn about where they might find asbestos in the home and how best to manage it so they can protect themselves and their families from asbestos fibres. “We want them to start thinking smart and safe by visiting for information on managing asbestos in and around the home because it’s not worth the risk,” Mr Dunphy said. During Asbestos Awareness Week, Australians are also invited to hold a Blue Lamington Drive to help raise awareness of the dangers of asbestos when renovating and vital funds to support the Asbestos Diseases Research Foundation and the Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia.

ork has started in preparation for the upgrade of the Central Coast Highway at West Gosford.

“An upgrade of this scale requires detailed planning and a staged approach,” said Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein. “Before the road can be built, many of the utilities need to be relocated. "Brisbane Water Dr and Manns Rd are vital links between Gosford, Woy Woy and Narara providing access to railway stations, local businesses and retail centres, the Central Coast Highway and the F3 Freeway. "Access to all residential and commercial properties needs to be maintained along with traffic flow for the 70,000 vehicles which use the intersection each day. “Work has started on building a local access road linking Ferguson Close and Kulara Ave. "This will enable BelHilton Pde to be closed and a road between Dyer Crescent and Grieve Close to be built to provide local access during the project. “Storm water drainage improvements will be carried out in advance of major work,” Mr Holstein said. Other preliminary works will include demolition of buildings, clearing of the site and the relocation of utilities such as power. The project itself will

involve the widening and realigning of Brisbane Water Dr and Manns Rd between Kalura Ave in the south and Stockyard Place in the north as well as the widening of the Central Coast Highway between the lower end of Kariong Hill and just west of Yallambee Ave. The project is expected to improve safety, reduce congestion and delays, and improve accessibility for all road users. A system of shared pedestrian-cycle paths on both sides of the main roads will connect to existing paths. Bus stops will be in indented bays as close as possible to pedestrian crossings. The project is expected to accommodate traffic growth for more than 20 years. Following community input RMS selected a ground level cross intersection, including a link between Grieve Close and Jusfrute Dr, as the preferred option in 2010. RMS finalised an environmental assessment to proceed to detailed development and construction in December 2010. Through this further development work, RMS undertook detailed

Gosford mayor Cr Lawrie McKinna said Australia has one of the highest rates of asbestosrelated diseases in the world. This was because Australia has been ranked among the top consumers of asbestos cement products per capita. “With almost every home built or renovated before the mid 1980s likely to contain asbestos in one form or another; the third wave of people affected by mesothelioma, one of the asbestos-related diseases, has recently become evident and will continue to rise unless we all start taking seriously the dangers of asbestos when renovating or maintaining our homes,” said mayor Cr McKinna. In the past, those affected by asbestos related diseases were exposed to raw fibres in the mining and manufacturing process (first wave), followed by workers who used asbestos products in the workplace (second wave). The third wave of asbestosrelated diseases predominantly affect people exposed to fibres during home renovations and maintenance specifically handymen and DIYers as well as family members present at the time.

Council in negotiations with developer over proposed $500M Chinese Theme Park yong Council received an updated report on the status of the proposed site for a Chinese Cultural Theme Park on Warren Rd, Warnervale, at its ordinary meeting of Wednesday, November 19.


Chinese Theme Park representative Ms Amanda Lee addressed the meeting and explained how the venue would provide jobs for residents of Wyong Shire and would be a boost for the local economy. Ms Lee said while the majority of the revenue for the theme park would come from private proprietors, the Chinese Government was supportive of their plan to construct in Warnervale. It was resolved at the meeting that the mayor and general manager urgently negotiate with Australia Theme Park Pty Ltd with the objective of achieving an agreement for sale of the proposed site where Council’s risks and liabilities would be minimised and where a satisfactory sale price was offered by the purchaser. Council has received a number of visits and documents from Chinese delegates during the past two years, with many influential businessmen and Government officials indicating support for the project. All support is dependent upon the issue of land tenure and zoning issues

being resolved between Council and Australia Theme Park Pty. The site, at Lot 3 Warren Rd, Warnervale, has a total area of 179.277 Ha. The site includes Warnervale Airport and a portion of Porters Creek wetland. The village would be a working village with accommodation, shops, restaurants, galleries and tourist accommodation. The proposal is expected to cost in the vicinity of $500 million making it one of the largest private sector developments in Wyong Shire and the Central Coast. In March last year Council considered a Mayoral Minute in relation to the proposal from Australia China Cultural Foundation Incorporated (ACCFI) to develop a Chinese Theme Park on Council owned land at Warnervale. Council resolved among others matters to enter into a co-operation agreement to continue to progress the project. This agreement was formally entered into on Monday, August 15, 2011 with mayor Cr Doug Eaton and the President of ACCFI, Mr Bruce Zhong signing the


agreement. The terms of the agreement identified that Council grant ACCFI a non-exclusive licence to enter the land for the sole purpose of carrying out investigatory works to support the development of the project. The period of the agreement was from Friday, July 1, 2011, to Thursday, June 30, 2012, with the agreement having now lapsed. During the period of the agreement ACCFI engaged consultants Cardno to undertake a desktop review of environment, engineering and planning constraints with regard to the proposed development. The review identified that the current zoning of the property as Industrial would not permit all of their proposed uses, however, this matter could be addressed by making a submission to rezone the land to permit the proposed land use through the exhibition period of LEP 2012. The cost of this review undertaken by Cardno is reported to be in the vicinity of $250,000. At a councillor briefing session held in June of this year, an update of the current situation was presented

with particular emphasis being placed on the financial models available to this project. In August this year, an offer to purchase the site from Council was received from Mr Zhong, however, this offer was considered unacceptable to Council with a response being forwarded detailing Council's position in the matter. In October, Council

received a conditional offer to purchase the site for $10 million from the Australia Theme Park Pty Ltd. The conditions imposed inappropriate risk and obligations on Council and as such the offer was rejected and the Australia Theme Park Pty Ltd was advised accordingly. Council staff are currently preparing a land economics report

on the site that will be used to guide future decision making on this site The mayor and general manager of Council have been requested to report the outcomes of the negotiations at the next ordinary Council meeting on Wednesday, November 28. Council Agenda, 14 Nov 2012 7.4, Wyong Council

undreds of young people descended on the Bateau Bay PCYC for the National Indigenous 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3 on Friday, November 23.


Over 60 teams and over 200 young people from Wyong schools participated in the 3on3. The action-packed event featured a 3on3 basketball tournament, rapping and break dancing lessons, art workshops, a dance competition and a health expo. Community Engagement manager Ms Medika Thorpe said the event was well-received by the community. “The community was so excited about the event, extremely supportive and the kids had a fabulous time. “There were over 60 teams, which was a wonderful turn out in

this community,” said Ms Thorpe. “Aunty Bronwyn Chambers welcomed us to country accompanied by her grandson who played the didgeridoo. “Federal Member for Dobell Craig Thomson and State Member for the Entrance Chris Spence also attended the opening ceremony. “The Kanwal Aboriginal Girls Dance Group performed a traditional contemporary piece followed by the angelic voice of young singer dancer Laila Lake singing My Island Home. “We also had the Jump Rope for Heart kids performing a skipping performance.” Ms Thorpe said the dance breakoff competition was just one of the exciting parts of a jam-packed day. “The kids really shine when they’re on the dance mat. “The day was jampacked with activities, including a special addition

to the day - The Kool Purple Kookas, run by Corey Grech. “This is about teaching kids the importance

of healthy eating and there were cooking demonstrations with the kids creating dishes using healthy ingredients and

indigenous meats such as crocodile, kangaroo and emu.” She said the children engaged well with the

indigenous role models on the day. “We had some wonderful and inspiring role models including Trent Lake and Derek Peachey, who are both footballers from The Australian Rugby Union Academy, telling kids the importance of having a healthy diet and keeping fit. “Dancers Juanita Duncan and Darren Compton wowed the kids with their performances and workshops, local artist Carol Sutherland ran the art workshop, creating a theme around what makes them happy, which produced some really beautiful artwork. “MC Brothablack and DJ Jimblah spread healthy messages throughout the day, with rapper Yung Nooky writing some positive raps with the kids. “All up – the Wyong 3on3 was an excellent day, full of excited and motivated kids looking forward to being involved in all the activities.”

Rogic and Ryan selected for Socceroos

by Central Coast Mariners media

un Mariners duo Mathew Ryan and Tomas Rogic have earned another opportunity to impress Qantas Socceroos boss Holger Osieck with selection in the German’s provisional 25man squad for the 2013 East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) East Asian Cup qualifying tournament to be held in Hong Kong next month.


Ryan and Rogic linked with their Qantas Socceroos teammates in Sydney on Monday, November 26, in preparation for games against the host country, North Korea, Guam and Chinese Taipei from December 3 to 9. Rogic made his Qantas Socceroos debut against Korea Republic in Hwaseong earlier this month and earned praise from pundits for his efforts off the bench as Australia secured a narrow 2-1 win over their hosts. Ryan has yet to take

to the field for the senior national team, however, it is likely the talented custodian will receive his opportunity as Australia aim to qualify for the EAFF East Asian Cup Finals to be held in Korea Republic next July. Following Central Coast Mariners training in Tuggerah on Thursday, November 22, Ryan and Rogic spoke of their delight in earning selection for their second consecutive Qantas Socceroos squad. “I would love to get a cap under my belt, but obviously the boss Holger is in charge of that. “If my time is this time then I would be rapt and confident I can do a job for him,” Ryan said. Rogic added, “I am very pleased.” “I am very happy and proud again. “I just need to keep working hard and I am looking forward to going into camp. “I think it makes the transition a lot easier having a familiar face (Ryan) there. “It’s obviously great for Maty and I am sure we will enjoy our time there together,” he said. Selection in the

Mariners close to re-gaining ladder lead

by Jess Norton

entral Coast Mariners have closed the gap on ladder leader Adelaide United to just two points after a well-earned 2-1 win over Brisbane Roar in the Hyundai A-League round eight clash at Bluetongue Stadium on Sunday, November 25.


Goals from Central Coast young guns Bernie Ibini and Tomas Rogic sealed the victory for the yellow and navy against Rado Vidosic’s men. The triumph was the Mariners’ first ever over Roar at Gosford. The hosts looked dangerous from the outset and the Bluetongue faithful didn’t have to wait long to see the Mariners take the lead. A classy header from youngster Ibini sent his side ahead four minutes in following some neat interplay in the midfield and a pinpoint cross from marauding right-back Pedj Bojic. Brisbane weren’t happy and were handed a chance of their own 10 minutes later as Ben Halloran fired a cross-cum-shot into the box. Nevertheless, he failed to trouble keeper Mathew Ryan who made a comfortable save. Gun midfielder Rogic

was looking to double the advantage for Graham Arnold’s men not long after as defender Josh Rose played provider following a strong run down the left flank. The recently capped Qantas Socceroo midfielder Rogic struck his curling effort well, but unfortunately for the home team the shot thumped against the woodwork. Roar responded in the 32nd minute through Massimo Murdocca. The diminutive blasted a low strike past Ryan from the edge of the area. Soon after tempers began to flare in Gosford as Albanian ace Besart Berisha made a nasty challenge on Mariners’ stopper Trent Sainsbury. Players from both teams were involved in a heated exchange, with Berisha as well as Mariners marksman Daniel McBreen receiving yellow cards following the melee. Roar came closest to entering the sheds at half time a goal to the good, however, Central Coast skipper John Hutchinson was in the right place at the right time to clear the ball off the line following a goalmouth scramble. It was a cagey start to the second stanza, with relatively few clear-cut opportunities created by either side soon after the restart.

Rogic sent Brisbane custodian Michael Theo scrambling on the 55-minute mark as he fired a longrange effort just wide. The Canberra-born talent was in the action again soon after as he delivered a dangerous ball to McBreen. Brisbane’s defence retreated well, clearing the ball for a corner. The home side continued to press and were rewarded for their efforts in the 81st minute as an impressive Bojic free kick found New Zealand international Michael McGlinchey. McGlinchey nodded the ball back to Rogic who made no mistake in finding the back of the net for the third time this campaign. Both coaches decided to make changes as the clock wound down. Rogic left the pitch to a standing ovation from the Bluetongue faithful, while

Mitchell Duke entered the fray. Nick Fitzgerald replaced Halloran for Roar. Arnold’s men had a good opportunity to add another goal to the scoreboard in stoppage time as substitute Duke slammed the crossbar after receiving a neat pass from Oliver Bozanic. But goals from Ibini and Rogic were enough for Central Coast to secure their third home win of the season and consolidate their place in second position on the Hyundai A-League ladder. Post-match, Central Coast Mariners head coach Graham Arnold expressed his delight that his team had made history at Bluetongue Stadium. “I had no idea of that stat until yesterday,” Arnold said of the fact the Mariners had never beaten Brisbane Roar on the banks of the Brisbane Water.

“The boys made history today which is great. “It was a good game overall, a good spectacle in those conditions. “It was tough for both teams but I thought we did very well today.” Arnold explained that he believed most clubs’ depth would be tested over the coming rounds with many Hyundai A-League players away on Qantas Socceroos duty in Hong Kong. “I think the next couple of weeks are going to be interesting because there are a lot of players missing with the Socceroos,” he said. “It will be a test of depth for clubs, for sure. “(But) we look forward to a top-of-the-table clash next week against Adelaide here at Bluetongue.” Central Coast Mariners host John Kosmina’s ladder leading Adelaide United

entral Coast d o m i n a t e d a shortened 33 over a side affair against Northern Coast in the NSW Country Cricket Championships in Newcastle on November 16 to 18.


Batting first, North Coast could only manage 9-107 from their allotted overs, with only Michael Rixon (28) and Andrew Trappel (22) showing any form. The Central Coast attack was consistent with Chris Archer and Mark Smith each taking two wickets supported by some good fielding. In reply, the Coasters

quickly knocked up the runs for a bonus point victory in 20 overs led by an unbeaten 53 from Stuart Lockyear and 31no from Blair Lindsay. On day three, Central Coast entered this clash against Central Northern knowing that they required a double bonus point win to have any chance of qualifying for the Final. Central Northern had first use of the conditions but, despite Jayden Hoare (23) and Nick De Guisti (20) getting starts, could only manage 133. Ben Sunshine enjoyed a good day out with the ball taking 4-19, while Mark Smith and Chris Archer took two wickets a piece.

Central Coast attacked right from the start of their innings in pursuit of bonus points led by some aggressive batting from Matt Jones and Ryan Fenning (27). Victory was achieved in the 22nd over which saw the much needed bonus points attained, with Matt Jones unbeaten on 50. The Central Coast team comprised Chris Archer, Dylan Robertson, Matt Jones, Ryan Fenning, Stuart Lockyer, Dave Mitchell, Ben Sunshine, Dane Hokin, Scott Burkinshaw, Mitchell Coombs, Blair Lindsay and Mark Smith with Glenn Rowlands as coach and Geoff Patterson as manager.

entral Coast Marlins baseball team lost to league leading Baulkham Hills Kookaburras 6-4 on Sunday, November 18, at Baseball Park, Springfield.


It was a bad start defensively, with several errors in the top of the first inning allowing the Kookaburras to take a 2-0 lead. The Kookaburras then tacked on another run in the second inning via a solo home run from Zac Shepherd. The Marlins’ defence settled and allowed the

batters to wake up. In the bottom of the third, Greg Woods reached, as did Jason Rees, via a hit and they both scored on Pat Maat’s single to bring the score to 3-2. Paul Anderson was the starting pitcher for the Marlins and settled in nicely. It wasn’t until the fifth inning that Baulkham Hills plated another run after a two-out hit. The Marlins threatened in the fifth and sixth but failed to get the big hit. Paul Anderson then turned the ball over to brother Craig who threw another two scoreless innings to give Marlins a chance. Marlins scored a run in

the bottom of the eighth and Mitch Dening doubled and scored on Pat Maat’s single. Marlins’ defence again let them down in the top of the ninth, with three errors contributing to Baulkham Hills plating two runs to lead 6-4. Marlins got runners aboard in the bottom of the ninth but could not get the big hit. Maat and Rees were the offensive standouts with two hits apiece. Marlins will resume play against Penrith on Wednesday, December 5, after their two week break due to the bye and State League’s All Star game.

On the Water

Chapman honoured at Budgewoi regatta by Kathryn Bourke

he late Ashley C h a p m a n , beloved mentor to hundreds of young Central Coast sailors, was honoured at a memorial regatta held by Budgewoi Sailing Club on the weekend of November 17 and 18.


Umina Boardriders competition held

by Verity Roser

m i n a Boardriders held its most recent surfing competition on Sunday, October 28, which saw Mat Munson take out the Opens event.


Craig Glynn came in second followed by Luke McLachlan and Shane Roser. In the Masters, it was Brian Cook who was awarded the honours with Glen Bible in second, Tony Wilson in third, Kevin Miller in fourth and Luke Gehrels in fifth.

Co-founder of Budgewoi Sailing Club in 1972, Ashley died on October 4, aged 99. He raced his Corsair dinghy Sadie Too with the club until just 18 months before his death. A total of 29 boats took part in the memorial regatta,

14 of them veteran Corsair 16ft family monohulls which was, for 40 years, Ashley’s favourite class of dinghy. Sailors from as far afield as Queensland competed in the four-race program. On the beach before the first race on Sunday morning, former Corsair Class national champion George Watt spoke movingly of Ashley’s life and achievements and a minute’s silence was observed to the fitting background rustle of the fleet’s sails. At the trophy ceremony after the last race on Sunday, Mark Vandersteen, whom Ashley taught to sail as a boy and who has now

taken over as club senior instructor, said “There are not many places where a 10 year old might think of an 80 year old as his or her best friend, but that is how it was here for so many of us”. Trophies were presented by former NSW Premier Nathan Rees whose family has long had a holiday home in Budgewoi. Mr Vandersteen thanked sailors from surrounding clubs, notably Toukley and Mannering Park, for turning out and helping make the regatta an outstanding success. He indicated that the club intended to make the regatta an annual event.

The Cadets was won by Mason Reineker followed by Jake Monsalve, Jack O’Connell and Shannon Adams. The Club’s November competition, originally scheduled for Sunday, November 18, was postponed due to a lack of swell. Umina Boardriders will hold its End of Year presentation on Saturday, December 8, at Patonga

Beach Hotel where trophies and prizes will be presented in each division. The prizes will be awarded based on the points tallied from the Club’s monthly competition. The first competition for the New Year will be held in February with the Club also deciding to change the competition dates for the year to the second weekend of the month.
