It was determined that the site be considered in the Regional Waste Strategy and formation of the Joint Central Coast Waste Initiative. Council was told that in 1983

Sinclair Knight and Partners produced a report entitled GosfordWyong Regional Waste Disposal Study which identified four additional sites in Gosford LGA available for future waste disposal.

Only the Bulls Hill Quarry site was considered suitable for a future solid waste disposal site. The study found that the main advantages of the site included a good location clear of residential

The proposal includes improvements to the existing agistment facilities on the property including the upgrade of an existing holding paddock, the formalisation of a holding paddock to a lesson arena, the formalisation of the view area, the upgrade of three existing spelling paddocks and use of the widened driveway for client parking. The proposal provides

for a local “animal training establishment” that would service the greater Peninsula and Bouddi catchment and provide local part time employment and economic benefits for local families. It would also provide a local recreational facility for young people and people with disabilities who wanted to learn horse riding skills. In addition, the proposal sought to establish a valuable small scale tourist facility that would service the growing day trip and overnight market.

areas which was only 2.5km further from the centre of Woy Woy population area than the existing depot, economically controllable environmental impacts, a large volume over which to distribute development costs and a lack of other suitable alternatives. A report from council staff stated that no action was taken at that point as the three existing landfill sites in Green Point, Kincumber and Woy Woy had sufficient capacity for immediate needs. The report stated only the Woy Woy site now operated as landfill and recycling was a necessity. The Woy Woy tip’s life was limited to 2032, based on current usage, according to the report. “It is imperative that Council seeks to prolong its economic life by recycling all suitable material and thus reducing landfill. “The planning proposal provides the capability to divert significant quantities of solid, construction and demolition waste and green waste from the existing landfill.” The site would include a soil processing facility, community re-use facility, an Alternate Waste Technology section for processing of 100,000 tonnes per annum of municipal solid waste, incorporating material from both Gosford and Wyong, and a composting facility for managing 60,000 tonnes per annum of source separated green waste and 15,000 tonnes per annum of biosolids. Gosford Council Agenda ENV.48, 5 Jun 2012

A staff assessment of the proposal presented to Gosford Council on Tuesday, June 7, stated that there was a strong demand for additional horse riding facilities in the area with only one other commercial operation which was already operating to capacity and had limited availability for additional students. The council will initiate the Local Environmental Plan “gateway process” to enable the proposal to proceed.

Gay said. “RMS and the Department of Education and Communities (DEC) have been working with the company for some time and have done everything possible to resolve the issues in dispute, while ensuring public money is spent responsibly and lawfully. “RMS has for several months paid all of its payments to Reed ahead of contract terms to support its cash-flow to help it meet subcontractor commitments,” Mr Gay said. “An expedited determination process was also put in place to resolve as quickly as possible the outstanding claims Reed has against RMS and DEC. “An expert panel, led by Andrew Rogers

At a special combined meeting on Thursday, May 31, the Councils agreed to set up a new joint service arm to bring together their ‘back office’ functions like information technology, human resources, finance, motor vehicles and customer service as a way of bringing about efficiency savings and better practices. “This is a landmark decision for the Central Coast”, said Gosford mayor Cr Laurie Maher. “Not only have we agreed on a model for

A landmark decision for Gosford the Water Corporation, but by bringing together our IT platforms, pooling resources like vehicles and equipment, and streamlining our business practices, in the long term, we’ll save millions of dollars that can be reinvested in vital community services like roads, stormwater, parks and libraries.” Last November, the Councils employed expert consultants, PricewaterhouseCoopers, to conduct a cost benefit analysis of potential business models for the

newly created Central Coast Water Corporation. One of the main objectives was to find a way to transfer the functions of water and wastewater management to the Corporation without any negative impact on the rest of the Councils’ business. “Once we started looking at it under a long-term model, it quickly became apparent that combining our efforts in back office needs would bring about the biggest gains”, said mayor Cr Maher. While several models

were considered, the Councils have decided to transfer Council water and wastewater staff to the Central Coast Water Corporation in phases over five years, retain water and wastewater assets in Council ownership and lease them to the Water Corporation on a long term (40 year) lease and set up a new joint services business to meet the needs of all three organisations in areas like HR, IT, Finance, Plant and Fleet and customer service. “This is the perfect opportunity to rethink how Councils do business on the Coast,” said Wyong mayor Cr Bob Graham. “And having looked at

the research, it just makes plain good sense.” Mayor Cr Graham said “the proposal provides a best value outcome for the Central Coast community while ensuring guaranteed delivery of essential services of water and sewerage”. “This decision is all about putting the Central Coast first,” said mayor Cr Graham. “Better water services alone will go a long way to attracting business to the Coast and help stimulate the local economy, but this delivers a lot more.” A transitional action plan to map out implementation of the decision will be considered by a further

Council to proceed with recycling at Bulls Hill The Council resolved to initiate the Local Environment Plan “gateway process” for a resource recovery facility in Woy Woy at its meeting of Tuesday, June 6,. The site is 750m from Woy Woy Rd and was operated as a sandstone quarry until 1982. A licence for the extractive industry continued until the mid1990s. The land used for the quarry extraction area is now stripped of significant vegetation and accommodates several siltation dams, ballast stockpiles and dumped cars. The matter was previously considered by Council on December 7, 2010, and a planning proposal was forwarded to the Department of Planning, which subsequently requested clarification regarding a number of operational issues. However this was withdrawn when the Council’s City Services Directorate advised that until a Regional Waste Strategy has been investigated it was unwise to proceed. Council was told that the Regional Waste Strategy progressed and it was considered that the development of a resource recovery facility located at Bulls Hill was critical to the future waste management options for Gosford.

Each year the tournament attracts more interest with a record 25 clubs registered to participate this year. The Central Coast Baseball Association has welcomed new clubs, East

Hills, Quakers Hill, Forest, St. Mary’s and Astros to the tournament: “We also welcome teams from regional areas such as Wollongong and Newcastle as well as a host of clubs across the Sydney metro area,” said publicity officer Ms Megan Morgan. Forty three teams in total will play across all age divisions - U10s, U12s and U14s starting at 9am each day and finishing at 4:30pm each day with finals held Sunday afternoon.

The New Zealand contingent of Tony Grantham, Andrew Kelly, Richard Girvan and Ali Forsyth got off to a flying start, picking up four shots on the second and fourth ends to establish a commanding 8-2 lead. The host nation’s starstudded outfit of Asia Pacific Championships gold medallist Mark Berghofer, world number two Leif Selby, Australian Open pairs champion Nathan Rice and world number four Aron Sherriff were valiant in their attack, squaring the lead at 11-all with two ends remaining, but were unable to attain more than one shot on eight of their nine winning

Tax Tips for 2012 With 2012 drawing to a close, it is worth considering ways to reduce your tax now, rather than later. At Broadview we are constantly reviewing our clients’ tax position; after all, it is not how much you earn that is important, it is how much you keep. Tax planning should be a year-long exercise. If the year looks good, consider contributing extra in super (a self-managed or industry fund) or purchasing income earning assets like rental property that will in time increase in value but in the short term provide tax relief. A few of my year end tips are as follows: • Bring forward repair bills before June 30; • Defer any invoicing, if you can, until July; • Pay extra super before June 30 (super must be paid to be claimed); • Write off those bad debts or obsolete stock; • If you have a sale resulting in a capital gain, defer settlement until July; • If you have made a profit on shares, consider selling shares with losses to offset the profits; • Make additional gifts to charity before June 30, rather than after; and • Certain expenses can be prepaid by up to 12 months. If it must be paid anyway, may as well get the deduction now.

the world at the moment; he is on top of his game so to get a result like that against the Aussies is always a bonus for us. “The round robin was really, really tight; we only made the final by one shot,” Edwards said after the win.

“That’s the quality and standard of players that we’ve got here, so it was always going to be a great final. “We got out of the blocks well and then withstood their comeback.”

HELPING TO MAKE ENDS MEET

HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS SUPPORTING LOCAL HOUSEHOLDS The Government understands many local households are feeling the pinch. That’s why Labor is delivering extra cash to families, pensioners and other local households to help them make ends meet. In the coming weeks, more than 10,600 eligible local families will receive a cash payment – to help now and over the coming months. And more than 28,200 local pensioners will receive a cash payment as well. Other households – including students, carers and eligible retirees – will also get extra support. This money will go straight into bank accounts. In July, Labor is also delivering a tax cut for more than 47,000 local people – so you can take home more in your regular pay. And next year, usual family payments, pensions and other payments will go up. I’m committed to making sure local residents are getting the support they need to help make ends meet. $250 one off lump sum. Pensioners and Self Funded From May 2012 From March 2013 - $338 pa for singles/$510 pa for couples combined Retirees with Seniors Health Card Taxpayers up to $80,000 pa At least $303 pa with the increase of the tax free threshold to $18,200.

Did you know that... As of 1 July, 9 in 10 households on the Central Coast will receive assistance through tax cuts and/ or payment increases.

Thank you! This years Peninsula Links Day was a great success. Thank you to the Peninsula Interagency Group, Centrelink and the 78 exhibitors that made it possible. More than 600 individuals and families were able to access vital assistance, from haircuts to food hampers, that they otherwise would have missed out on.

2011 grand final result reversed in round 8 by Larry Thomson Photos: Angela Beattie

voca Beach reversed last year’s Grand Final result when they defeated Gosford by 20 points to 18 at Heazlett Park in round eight of the Central Coast Rugby Union competition.

A

It was a very closely fought encounter from start to finish, and it was Avoca Beach who took the victory with minutes to spare. The very damp conditions did not deter both teams from playing expansive rugby and passing the ball around. Gosford had the better of the first half on the scoreboard and went to the halftime break leading by 13 points to six. Gosford scored the only try in this half and had much the better of the general

play. Gosford had several good players in the first half but none were better than flanker Hugo Pike, fly half Adam Carlisle and flanker Andrew Moseley on his return from injury. Gosford continued in the same vein in the second half. They scored their second try in the second half to take an increased lead. However with two minutes remaining Avoca Beach crossed for their only try of the match to take the lead for the first time in the match by 20 points to 18. Gosford did have a penalty shot at goal right on fulltime but the ball hit the posts and Avoca Beach had held on for a very close victory. The star for Avoca Beach was outside back Matt Maloney who kicked five

penalty goals for a total of 15 points. Jacob Briggs scored their late try. The win cemented Avoca Beach in the Top Four while Gosford fell to fifth spot on the competition ladder. Ourimbah scored a good win over Warnervale at Woongarrah Oval, running out winners by 26 points to nil. Ourimbah started strongly and controlled much of the first half. They were able to race in for four tries in the first 40 minutes and basically had the match wrapped up at halftime. They went to the break leading by 26 points to nil. However Warnervale came back in the second stanza with a much improved performance. There were no points scored in the second half

The Razorback’s Clint Guyett wrapped up by the Warnervale defence

and much of this was due to some excellent Warnervale defence. It was a heartening effort in the second half by Warnervale. However Ourimbah had the game secured by halftime and had deserved their victory. Best for Ourimbah was lock Tyler Jones and he was well supported by Alex Lucas and Nigel Kennedy. Warnervale were led admirably by Dylan Acreman in their second half comeback and he put in a wonderful performance. The win keeps Ourimbah at the top of the competition ladder. Kariong were too strong for Northlakes at Kariong Oval and ran out winners by 41 points to 10. Kariong ran in six tries to one and that was a very true indication of the flow of the

match. Flanker Afele Tongia continued in his try scoring mood with a double, and his good play was supported by great efforts from Moanna Talakai and Sone Taito. Northlakes were never really allowed in the match, and the win put Kariong back in the Top Four. Terrigal defeated Woy Woy by 11 points to eight at Woy Woy Oval in what was a dour encounter from start to finish. Woy Woy almost caused the upset of the season when they all but won the game in the final minutes of the match. Both teams only scored one try apiece so there was absolutely nothing in the match. Terrigal only led by three points to nil at the halftime break so the result was certainly up for grabs.

Both teams scored a five pointer in the second half but the two penalty goals by Terrigal’s Damien Woods was the difference. Woy Woy had a chance to square the game in the final minute with a penalty goal attempt but attempted to go for the win but with no luck. Best for Terrigal was half back Doug Angus who was outstanding all game. Best for Woy Woy was lock Matthew Hopkins who gave it everything all day and scored his team’s sole try. The narrow win kept Terrigal near the top of the ladder while Woy Woy get their second bonus point of the season.

June 14, 2012 - GRANDSTAND - P7

Union

Mid season preview he round of rugby union this Saturday, June 16, sees the halfway point of the Central Coast competition for 2012.

T

It will also be a great round of rugby with all four matches quite evenly poised. The top four teams all meet each other in what will be a tense afternoon of rugby. Terrigal are at home to Avoca Beach at The Haven Oval while Ourimbah host Kariong at Ourimbah Rugby Park. These two matches will be closely fought from start to finish. The match at The Haven Oval between Terrigal and Avoca Beach is one of the highlight matches on the Central Coast rugby calendar. The teams always enjoy defeating the other and the two seaside clubs are very intense rivals. But what makes this match even more intense is the fact that both teams

are locked on 27 points in second spot and a win could put them at the top of the ladder and a loss could see them out of the Top Four. Terrigal are at home and will see themselves with a great chance of victory. However, they just scraped home in their last match against Woy Woy and know they will have to put in a much better effort this Saturday. They are also meeting a team who are on a winning streak. Avoca Beach were close winners over Gosford at their last start and are on a roll at the present time. Both teams will pass the ball around but the recent wet weather will more than likely limit the game to a forward struggle. The Terrigal pack are not a big pack but they are very committed and aggressive. They are never far from the ball and will frustrate any team. This match will be a beauty from start to finish and a large crowd is expected at The Haven on Saturday. The other top of the

table clash will be between Ourimbah and Kariong at Ourimbah Rugby Park. Ourimbah are currently the competition leaders while Kariong are in fourth spot. This game is similar to the above match in that positions can change quickly because the top five teams are so close on the ladder. Gosford is breathing down their necks and a loss is not what is wanted by either team. The forward battle in the match will be intense. The damp conditions will tend to see the game played in the forwards but these two teams tend to base their game on very physical forward play anyway. It will be a tough and physical battle up front. Kariong do have speed out wide and that may be the difference ,but with Ourimbah at home and so keen to stay at the top of the competition ladder, they will be most keen to get the win. Gosford play Warnervale at Gosford Showground Field. Gosford are in fifth spot

and know they must win. They also know a win will more than likely put them back into the Top Four. However Warnervale are just the team to push them all the way. Warnervale have had some disappointing losses this year but played some good rugby in their most recent encounter despite the loss against Ourimbah. Gosford will be playing for a bonus point and sometimes this can affect the general play. This match will be much tighter than people expect but also a very important battle in terms of Top Four calculations. The match between Woy Woy and The Entrance at Woy Woy Oval will also be a good one. Woy Woy have put in some far better performances in recent weeks and will go into this game as favourites because of this form and also because of their home ground advantage.

Both teams are placed near the bottom of the ladder and they both know a win might get them away from that dreaded wooden

spoon. This should be a very open game and much ball movement will be seen during the 80 minutes.

P8 - GRANDSTAND - June 14, 2012

League mid-season update by Andrew Stark Photos: www.10dollarphotos.blogspot.com

Matt Wakefield starred yet again for the Roosters

s the combatants for this season’s Central Coast Cup headed into the Queen’s birthday mid season bye, the pack was led by the Magpies from Ourimbah.

A

Terrigal and Kincumber gave earnest chase, while Peninsula foes Umina and Woy Woy made up the top five. Last year’s minor premiers and ultimate runners up, Ourimbah, have claimed the outright lead in this season’s competition following their 24-6 victory at Terrigal in the latest round of matches. Heading into the top of the table clash with somewhat patchy recent form, the Magpies led by six at the break and kicked away after oranges in what proved to be their most complete performance of the past month. It was the second straight

loss for the Sharks who had succumbed to Kincumber the previous week and, after traversing the opening seven weeks without disappointment, the Duffys Rd squad will be looking to recapture their winning ways when they host the Eagles in the first of their return matches. Woy Woy welcomed back their chief playmaker Adam Tippett during the red and whites 42-18 win over a spirited Toukley in wet and slippery conditions at Woy Woy. The Roosters struggled to escape their own half during the opening 20 minutes and the Hawks took full advantage of their early bustle, bouncing to a handy 12-0 lead. However, once the Roosters managed to hang onto the Steeden, the likes of Matt Wakefield, Tim Bovis and Chad Martin began bending the blue and gold defensive line back and by half time Woy Woy led 16-

12. By day’s end diminutive left winger Geordie Makey had crossed for his second hat-trick of tries in three weeks and joined fellow youngsters Blake Mattei, Justin McDermott, Matt Cama, and Alex Baxter in impressing all who had braved the cataclysmic conditions to attend. As in many of Toukley’s losses during 2012, the fulltime score-line did no justice to the effort supplied. Props Peter Gafa and John Dean toiled manfully all afternoon while five eight Trent Walker laid on two of his team’s three tries unveiling a crafty dummy and dart,the first of which culminated in fullback Mitchell Kaufmann crossing after Peter Gafa had shown amazing Pele-like skills to keep the movement alive. In further Round nine results, Kincumber consolidated third position with a hard fought 22-10 victory over the Tigers, while Umina made it four wins on the trot, inflicting a 30-6 defeat upon the Berkeley Panthers. The Premiers horrific

2012 injury toll deepening with news that representative half Lincoln Tubridy had suffered a broken jaw. Northern Lakes’ scheduled game against Erina was washed out and will be played at a date to be announced. In lower grade action, Umina head the Reserve Grade standings despite suffering a shock 20-18 home loss to The Entrance in round eight. Led by the imposing prop forward Dean Knott and, with lanky playmaker Ernie McGillicuddy and the barnstorming rugby union convert Luke Serevi in fine form, the Bunnies sit two points ahead of Ourimbah for whom forwards Tane Henry, Sam Stewart and Matthew Barnes have been particularly prominent. Halves Daniel Jonovski and Dylan Allen are thriving behind the solid platform laid by the Sohier Park big men. In the Open Grade, Kincumber overcame Terrigal 22-18 under lights during week eight to assume the sole leadership. Umina captain-coach Nathan Shanks enjoyed a tremendous start to the season from dummy half and is currently bounding ahead in the competitions Best and Fairest rankings, while evergreen Shark Greg Morrison has proven unstoppable at times, the big number 19 crossing for 10 tries in just five games. Competition leaders Kincumber suffered their only defeat of the season in the latest round of U18 (1) matches; pipped 18-16 by the third placed Entrance Tigers. Terrigal remain undefeated in the 18 (2) division, opening up a hefty six point buffer on the competition ladder between themselves and the second placed Tigers. Meanwhile in the first round of the Country Championships, Central Coast caused a major

upset by knocking out the traditional powerhouse Illawarra with a 29-22 victory at Wyong. Trailing 10-0 during early exchanges, the Coasties fought back to lead by two at the break. With Erina captain-coach and former Canterbury Bulldog Jamie Feeney leading the way, the locals skipped away to 24-10 before withstanding a late South Coast revival.

And in a strange anomaly, front-running clubs Ourimbah and Terrigal collectively supplied only the single player, Magpies winger Alex Lash, to the 17 man team that took to the park against Illawarra. The victory enables the Central Coast to progress to the semi finals were they are due to play the Novocastrians in Newcastle on Saturday, June 16.

Junior League

U16s down to a 4 team competition by Andrew Stark

he premier U16 division of the Central Coast Junior Rugby League has been condensed to just four teams after the season kicked off seven weeks ago with half a dozen contenders.

T

The Terrigal team are the most recent to depart, forced to step down into the second division citing “non football related injury and illness” as the prime reason for the retreat. The Sharks exit followed hot on the heels of GosfordKariong’s demise a month earlier, leaving just Wyong, Kincumber, The Entrance and Ourimbah to fight it out for the prestigious 16 (1)s title. The Wyong Roos remain undefeated after seven rounds following their 28-4 defeat of Ourimbah while the Colts recorded a 30-4 home victory over the fourth placed

Warriors 13(1) on the charge Tigers. The Entrance and Umina head up the U10 (1) s competition however the Tigers do have a washed out fixture against Budgewoi still to play. The 11th placed Warnervale Bulls were but a benevolent puff of breeze

Malietoa Hingano playing for the Coast

away from snatching a late draw against Wyong in their round seven, U10(1) game at Warnervale Oval. A last ditch try in the corner to the home side brought the Bulls back to within two points, however, the well struck conversion attempt slammed into the woodwork and the Roos prevailed 10-8 in a gripping contest. The Ourimbah 13(2) s spent the long weekend hitting the tackle bags after their much heralded defensive line was opened up by the Warriors at Northern Lakes. The Warriors managed to go where no other 13(2) team has gone this season, across the Ourimbah stripe. Humorous reports have filtered back from the Gumbuyah cauldron telling of “thirteen lost Magpies”. As the Warriors goal kicker lined up the subsequent conversion of this rarest of tries, the Ourimbah lads were said to have been totally unfamiliar with the time honoured traditions of the spit and sneer in-goal huddle. Despite conceding their first points of the season,

UMINA

the Magpies still managed to record an impressive 30-4 victory and remain a win clear of the second placed Entrance who thumped an out of sorts Woy Woy by the even 100 to nothing at all. Gorokan High School’s Jesse Ramien, and Daniel Peck, who attends Hunter Sports High, have both been selected to play in the NSW CHS U15 team which will compete at the national championships in Darwin during the last week of June. Jesse is a centre threequarter who represented the Manly Sea Eagles during the recently completed Matthews Cup competition. Daniel plays in the halves, or out of dummy half and was a member of the Centurions U16s who narrowly missed the finals of the same NSWRL competition. Toukley continue to dominate with both 15(1) and 13(1) Divisions remaining unbeaten. In their latest matches the Hawks shut out the sixth placed Erina 34-0 in the fifteens, while their younger club mates ran riot against Wyong Gold racking up 74 unanswered points.

Former Ourimbah Magpie and Central Coast Storm U16 rugby league representative centre Malietoa Hingano has recently endured a cruel twist of fate. Over the moon following his selection in the Australian U20 rugby union team to compete at the World Cup

in South Africa, Hingano was later forced to withdraw from the squad owing to injury. Having grown up playing league on the Coast, the Manly Marlins star switched codes after being enrolled at St Augustines, Brookvale, as a 16 year old. The Entrance have leapfrogged out of the bye into top spot in the 14(1) s following Kincumbers 20-12 loss to Wyong. The 12(1) conference sees Erina and Wyong to the fore, charging shoulder to shoulder without having suffered defeat through seven rounds while last season’s U10 champions Ourimbah continue to cut a swathe through the 11(1) competition. Best wishes go out to Ronan Gaughran of the Ourimbah Under 15(2)s who suffered a broken lower leg during the Magpies 19-12 win over Central Wyong at Narara.

Five clubs share seven pennants by Bob Bourke

voca Beach Bowling Club has finally won the Bowls Central Coast-Zone 15 Grade 1 Pennant flag after being the runner-up in four of the last six finals.

A

The proud president of Avoca Beach Ashley Ayre said “this is the first time in the 52 year history of the club that Avoca Beach has won the much coveted Number

1 Flag and I congratulate all of our players on their performance right through the pennant season.” A jubilant Avoca member, Arthur Hales, was at Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club on Saturday, June 2, to cheer on his club mates. “The last time Avoca had won any pennant flag was back in 2002 when we won the Grade 5 and Grade Seven Pennant,” he said. It wasn’t an easy win for

Avoca, who had progressed through the sectional rounds with only one loss (to Ettalong) to win Section Two, and set up the final with Section One winner Halekulani. With their large support crowds cheering them on, a never-say-die Halekulani pushed Avoca all the way, with only two shots between them at times during the game. Avoca were not to be

denied their first Grade One flag and pulled away to record a 57-45 win much to the delight of their loyal supporters The Greens The Entrance Bowling Club should be very pleased with their bowler’s efforts as they took home the Grade Two and Grade Four Pennants and performed well in Grade Five. Host club Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club was another big winner on the

day by winning the Grade Three and Grade Four Pennants. The full results are: Grade One: Avoca Beach 57 defeated Halekulani 45 Grade Two: The Greens The Entrance 59 defeated Terrigal 49 Grade Three: Ettalong Memorial 69 defeated Wyong 50 Grade Four: The Greens The Entrance 54 defeated Gwandalan 49

Grade Five: The Greens The Entrance 55 defeated Ettalong Memorial 54 (however, Ettalong Memorial were the winners of the Grade Five Pennant on a count back) Grade Six: Toukley RSL 68 defeated Umina Beach 41 Grade Seven: Umina Beach 60 defeated Norah Head 44

Avoca bowlers win the No. 1 Pennant by Mark Rayner

voca Beach Men’s Bowling Club ventured to Ettalong on Saturday, June 2, to take on Halekulani in the bid to win the Pennant Flag.

A

It was a very overcast day and the skies were threatening to open but fortunately the rains held off and only a few dizzily showers made the day of play slightly uncomfortable. Avoca got off to a ying start leading 14 nil after only six ends. The Avoca team, who have never won a Number 1 Flag in the history of the club, were on a mission. With the weather still threatening, the game

became a struggle as the Halekulani team, who have won several Number 1 ags, fought back. The scores were within seven shots on the master board at one stage but the tenacity of the Avoca team was evident. Not to be denied, the Avoca side was never headed on the master board as they went on to win in a convincing manner, and so much so that the last end did not have to be played because of the lead that had been gained. Brett Pritchard’s team of Garry MacFadyen, Justin Shelly and Jason White won 18-11. Tony Shoebridge’s team of Jeff Doyle, Alan Lewin, Waylon Pritchard won 27 – 8

Kevin Bowcock’s team of Dick Love, Terry Gains and Laurie Barrett went down 26-12. Reserves were Col PassďŹ eld and Lex Gemmell who both had a tremendous contribution throughout the season in the teams making the ďŹ nal along with imports from the UK, Phil Downs and Malcolm Bishop. “Well done to all the players and the Avoca supporters along with a special thanks to the Ettalong Bowling Club who conducted the championship in an extremely professional manner under the guidance of John Roberts their bowls co-ordinator,â€? said Avoca Beach Bowing Club publicity ofďŹ cer Mr Mark Rayner.

Elliott wins Bay Bowlers’ men’s singles final

Charity bowling days

by Jan Richens

hree charity bowling days will be held on the Peninsula this month to honour the memory of Umina Beach Men’s Bowling Club life member Ron Pursehouse and raise money for prostate cancer.

T by Bob Bourke

Everglades Country Club will hold its event on Saturday, June 16, while Ettalong and Umina will hold their events on Thursday, June 28. Umina Beach Men’s Bowling Club publicity officer Mr Ian Jarratt said that it was the members who decided

that the money raised from the event should support local prostate cancer services. “That was some years ago now with the event helping to purchase a bladder scanner for prostate cancer patients on the Central Coast,” said Mr Jarratt. “In 2012, we were joined by the Everglades and Ettalong Men’s Bowling Clubs for the inaugural Peninsula Charity Bowling Days, three separate events that combined, raised $7600 for prostate surgery equipment for Gosford Hospital,” he said. Australia has one of the highest rates of prostate

cancer prevalence in the world with one in five men receiving treatment for prostate cancer in their lifetime. With early diagnosis and treatment many patients are able to maintain good quality of life after treatment. “It’s been a pleasure to be able to support prostate cancer care services on the Central Coast over the years in memory of Ron and we are delighted to once again be able to hold a combined Peninsula event,” said Mr Jarratt. “It’s great to see that the money we raise gets put to such great use to benefit the local community,” he said.

Toukley RSL win zone play off ttalong Bowling Club was the venue for the grade six zone play-off between Toukley RSL and Umina Beach Bowling Club on Saturday, June 2.

E Winner Steve Elliott on right being congratulated by runner-up Barry Troope.

he Bay Bowlers Men’s Singles Final for 2012 was played at Wyong Bowling Club on Monday, June 4, under the format of two sets of 12 ends plus a tie-breaker if necessary.

T

Steve Elliott and Barry Troope were the two finalists to emerge from the

preliminary rounds and it was Steve who jumped out to a commanding position by winning the first seven ends and lead 15-0 before Barry struck back and took the next three ends for seven shots. Steve answered back scoring two shots on end 11 to lead 17-7 and the set finished there with no need to play the last end. The second set was

closer with both Barry and Steve winning ends but Steve scored a three and a four plus four singles. Barry could only manage five singles and, with score line 11-5 in Steve’s favour at end 11, once again the last end wasn’t played and Steve Elliott was crowned the Bay Bowlers Men’s Singles Champion for 2012.

Toukley RSL team, skippered by Jim Love, went to an early lead and was never threatened. Although the score was Toukley 32 and Umina 8, the final score did not relate to the competitive spirit of both teams. “Special mention must go to Michael Waddington for

his outstanding display of bowling,” said Toukley RSL publicity officer Mr Barry Middleton. Toukley RSL team, skippered by Ian Campbell, had a more competitive situation and, consequently, the game could have ended with a much closer result. The final score was Toukley 20 and Umina 18. It was during this game that Toukley RSL scored a six on one end. They needed every shot to deter a determined and fast finishing Umina. Finally, Toukley RSL team, skippered by Don

by Barry Middleton

Sutcliffe, had a more gruelling game and had to work hard for every shot before they overcame the opposition. The final score was Toukley 68 and Umina 41, which equated to a 6-0 win over Umina. Toukley RSL manager Gordon Flanagan said he was very proud of the three teams. “Both club representative teams played with dedication and in a true sportsmanlike manner, and should be congratulated on their individual performances,” he said.

“Conditions of play were not very pleasant in fact the day was overcast and gloomy, however, the green was in good condition and running well,” said Toukley RSL Men’s Bowling Club publicity officer Mr Barry Middleton. “It was obvious that this suited both bowlers,” he said. Judy McMillan took an early three shot lead on the first end but dropped four shots on the second end.

On the fifth end, Elaine managed to lead by eight shots to four and, as the game progressed to the completion of the 17th end, Elaine clung to a slender lead of just two shots and the score was 16-14. “Both ladies were displaying a variety of shots and were drawing shots particularly well,” said Mr Middleton. During the next seven ends Judy managed to gain seven shots against Elaine’s five. “With the score now being 21-21 the tension was starting to build and the spectators began to appreciate the standard of play as the match unfolded before their very eyes,” said

Mr Frazer advised that the general meeting of the club would be held on Monday, July 2, at Woy Woy South School hall at 7pm and extended an invitation to current club members and all interested new players to attend on the night.

Mr Frazer went on say that he was delighted to advise that nominations for all club positions had been received in advance, thereby placing the club in a favourable administrative position as it enters the new season. From a playing perspective Umina will revert to division one in 2012-2013 having failed to retain its premier league status last season, but all the clubs junior strength will remain, ensuring the club will start favourites to claim the first division title next season.

Mr Frazer detailed the development programs for all junior sides. He also noted that junior cricket on the Central Coast suffered a 30 per cent reduction in registrations last season and he was hopeful he could reverse that trend on the southern Peninsula. All persons looking to play cricket at any level are welcome at Umina in 20121013, age is no barrier, nor is ability.

Coastal Residents Incorporated secretary Mr Pat Aiken said the group invited Gosford councillors to attend the rally and explain why they had agreed to the persecution of a small group of people whose properties were affected by Gosford Council’s forecasts for sea level rise. “The encoding of S149 (5) Planning Certificates with information that is blatantly exaggerated, in our opinion, demonstrates that you [Gosford councillors] have not acted in good faith and that you have not demonstrated a duty of care to those residents affected by your decision to support the recommendation of Council officers,” said Mr Aiken. “This decision exposes Gosford Council to future litigation and has already damaged the livelihood and wellbeing of thousands of Gosford City residents,” he said. Mr Aiken went on to say that Council continued

The sea level rise rally in Gosford

to claim that it would offer information sessions and public forums so the community could have their say, but after two years, there had been none. “The water of Gosford Harbour is known to be the benchmark for the current 1:100 flood planning levels for all of Brisbane Water and yet Gosford Council has laid out proposals that amount to abandonment of Davistown, Empire Bay and Woy Woy as a consequence of Sea Level Rise projections and at cost to those property

owners. “But the mayor then announced a need to raise public funds through a rate increase to support a commercial project that would be constructed on equally adversely affected land,” said Mr Aiken. Gosford Council has claimed that over 9000 properties were potentially affected by Sea Level Rise, but according to Mr Aiken, the projections were based on exaggerated claims of the CSIRO. “The sea level rise

records from Fort Denison, Newcastle and Port Kembla do not agree with the recent claims by the CSIRO that NSW waters indicate an average sea level rise of 5mm average per year from 1993 until 2011. “This is a blatant exaggeration of facts. “The Australian Bureau of Meteorology Australian Sea Level Survey 2009 states that average Australian Sea Level over an average of 42 years is 1.4mm-year with a standard deviation of 0.7mm-year.

Photos: ValsPix

“The same survey states that Fort Denison, Newcastle and Port Kembla have averaged less than 1mm sea level rise for periods up to 100 years. “Manly Hydraulics Laboratory, a NSW State Government agency, manages 21 tide gauges including five open ocean gauges and including Fort Denison which provides high quality long term sea level data to government agencies around the world. “The CSIRO has ignored this information and instead

published a document that indicates an average 5mm sea level rise for NSW Coastal Waters from 1993 until 2007 while Fort Denison indicates 0.4mm per year for the same period. “An exaggeration of over 1000 per cent. “Gosford Council appeared to support Tanya Plibersek and Deborah O’Neill who cornered a group of retirees, threatened them with coastal flooding of their properties unless a carbon tax was put in place and then walked away. “Gosford Council has also walked away. “Gosford Council will not engage in the consultation that was promised and our mayor, in an ABC local broadcast, has labelled those who oppose the decision of Gosford Council as sceptics. “We are sceptical. “We are sceptical of the claims made by Gosford Council that 9000 properties are affected and apparently being so concerned, Council still continues to retain information on planning certificates knowing how damaging this information has become,” he said.

osford Council has resolved to write to the Minister for the Central Coast, NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to request a consistent approach to sea level rise mapping and property certificate messaging to relevant land owners across the eastern seaboard of NSW.

Council will also seek advice on the implications should it withdraw the section 149 certificate message pertaining to sea level rise until the NSW State Government provides direction for a consistent approach and message. It will also continue to assist community members in dealing with insurance companies where they have received significantly increased insurance premiums due to flood risk and will write to the State

to the Insurance Council of Australia to ensure individual insurance companies determine their premiums in an appropriate manner and so avoid unjustifiable increases in annual premiums. Coastal Residents Incorporated president Mr Len Gibbon spoke to Council at its meeting of Tuesday, May 1, and said the s149 (5) planning certificate was “invalid”. He said Council was acting outside of their

communities”. “We call it irresponsible vandalism,” he said. Gosford mayor Cr Laurie Maher said he thought insurance companies were abusing the policy. Council developed sea level rise vulnerability mapping and, as part of developing these maps, used its discretion to share that information with current and future owners via a s149 (5) message. The message stated that the land had been identified

0.9m by the year 2100 as adopted by Council at its meeting held on December 1, 2009. It went on to say that: “Council’s adopted sea level rise planning level of 0.9m is consistent with the NSW State Government’s Sea Level Rise Policy Statement.” “All applications to develop the land need to consider sea level rise but as council does not currently have relevant strategic plans with respect to management of sea level rise for the area, no specific sea level rise development controls apply to this land. “Council is currently undertaking a program of studies that may affect future development on the

The NSW Sea Level Rise Policy was released in October 2009 and provided sea level rise planning benchmarks to assist council in risk assessment and planning. In August 2010 the “NSW Coastal Planning Guideline: Adapting to Sea Level Rise” was released by the State Government establishing planning principles to be applied by local government without clear direction or legislative backing. The process also lacked any form of communication strategy or community consultation from the State Government. Council’s report of Tuesday, May 1, stated that it had attempted to seek clarification and clearer

that surrounded sea level rise encoding, however, the State Government to date has failed to provide any clear and consistent direction for Councils on the NSW coast. “NSW coastal communities are confused and angry at the differences of planning and communication strategies being undertaken by Councils. “This frustration can only be resolved by direction from the State Government as to specifically when and what messages should be placed on s149 certificates to ensure consistency across all Councils.” Gosford Council Agenda NM.7, 1 May 2012

The new map details the rollout area in line with NBN Co’s commitment to release information on each new rollout module as it is announced. Each new module covers up to 3000 homes and businesses. NBN Co has also recently released a new online interactive map that allows members of the community to check the status of the rollout by typing in their location or postcode. With the new map now released, NBN Co’s construction partners can undertake detailed on-site design and survey works leading to the installation of fibre in this coverage area in months to come. On average, it will take 12 months from the start of construction until residents and business owners will be able to order active high speed broadband services.

Three of the four Director roles will be based in Sydney. Once the selection of the Directors for the redesigned roles is in place, work will continue to determine what functions will be in Sydney or Gosford. The changes within the Workers Compensation Insurance Division aim to improve services to customers, system providers and stakeholders

and to improve the effectiveness and efficiencies of the Workers Compensation System in NSW. The head office will remain in Gosford. Local government election candidate Mr Ian Kilpatrick said the announcement was a “tragic blow” to the Central Coast. “The Central Coast is again being disadvantaged. “We already have one of

the highest unemployment rates in Australia. “Our youth unemployment is at over 33 per cent. “We need more jobs not less on the Central Coast. “Those employees who will transfer back to the Sydney office now will have to join the thousands of commuters either facing the F3 or being crammed onto the trains. “It just does not make sense.

“Rents in Gosford are far cheaper than in Sydney. “Why doesn’t the State Government relocate more people to Gosford to achieve the same efficiencies of scale? “I understand the Governments need to cut costs, but it is not fair that the Central Coast residents should bear the brunt of this,” said Mr Kilpatrick. Labor spokesperson for The Entrance Mr David Mehan said the Public Service Association estimated that up to 100 staff may be affected by the cuts. “The O’Farrell

government’s commitment to the Central Coast must be questioned following this announcement. “Once management is moved back to Sydney it won’t be long before the whole of WorkCover’s head office function is returned to Sydney. “Should this happen it will be an strain on families who, just eight years ago, moved to the Coast from Sydney and it will effect business in the Gosford CBD,” said Mr Mehan.

A landmark decision for Gosford

n one of the most significant commitments to regional co-operation ever seen on the Central Coast, Gosford and Wyong Councillors agreed not only to move ahead with the new Central Coast Water Corporation but to deliver even more of their services together.

At a special combined meeting on Thursday, May 31, the Councils agreed to set up a new joint service arm to bring together their ‘back office’ functions like information technology, human resources, finance, motor vehicles and customer service as a way of bringing about efficiency savings and better practices. “This is a landmark decision for the Central Coast”, said Gosford mayor Cr Laurie Maher. “Not only have we agreed on a model for

the Water Corporation, but by bringing together our IT platforms, pooling resources like vehicles and equipment, and streamlining our business practices, in the long term, we’ll save millions of dollars that can be reinvested in vital community services like roads, stormwater, parks and libraries.” Last November, the Councils employed expert consultants, PricewaterhouseCoopers, to conduct a cost benefit analysis of potential business models for the

newly created Central Coast Water Corporation. One of the main objectives was to find a way to transfer the functions of water and wastewater management to the Corporation without any negative impact on the rest of the Councils’ business. “Once we started looking at it under a long-term model, it quickly became apparent that combining our efforts in back office needs would bring about the biggest gains”, said mayor Cr Maher. While several models

were considered, the Councils have decided to transfer Council water and wastewater staff to the Central Coast Water Corporation in phases over five years, retain water and wastewater assets in Council ownership and lease them to the Water Corporation on a long term (40 year) lease and set up a new joint services business to meet the needs of all three organisations in areas like HR, IT, Finance, Plant and Fleet and customer service. “This is the perfect opportunity to rethink how Councils do business on the Coast,” said Wyong mayor Cr Bob Graham. “And having looked at

the research, it just makes plain good sense.” Mayor Cr Graham said “the proposal provides a best value outcome for the Central Coast community while ensuring guaranteed delivery of essential services of water and sewerage”. “This decision is all about putting the Central Coast first,” said mayor Cr Graham. “Better water services alone will go a long way to attracting business to the Coast and help stimulate the local economy, but this delivers a lot more.” A transitional action plan to map out implementation of the decision will be considered by a further

meeting of the two Councils in June. The expected $135 million in savings was modelled over a 20 year period, with real dollar benefits starting to flow through to general council activities from financial year 2018-19 onwards. During the transition period, water and wastewater services will continue to be managed by Gosford City and Wyong Shire Councils. Customers should continue to contact their local Council with any enquiries. Media Release, 31 May 2012 Martine Brieger, Wyong Council

Football washouts on Search for talented footballers underway long weekend

by Jorge Chavez

by Val Bridge

he charity match football game set down for playing at Pluim Park on Monday, June 11, was a wash out.

T

The event, considered the local ‘state of origin’, had been thoroughly prepared in advance, only to see the heavens open up, resulting in both the men’s and women’s games being called off. At the time of press, the Central Coast Football Association was discussing the possibilities of playing

the game later in the season, but no firm decision was given. Now at the half way stage, the Women’s Premier League is looking interesting and, compared to this time last year, the leader board is wide open. Killarney currently lead the table on 21 points closely followed by Gosford on 18 points and Umina on 17 points. Both Doyalson and Kariong share 13 points with a game in hand. Wooden spoon is held by The Entrance with just one

win and five points from nine games. Avoca’s recent run of form has seen them climb the ladder into eighth spot with seven points from eight games one point ahead of Wyoming and two points behind Kanwal. This Sunday, June 17, sees Umina host Wyoming, Gosford travel north to Doyalson, Kanwal take on The Entrance at Kanwal, Tuggerah are at home to Killarney, and Avoca host Kariong at Erina High School.

U14s win country championships by Brian Howden

he Central Coast r e p r e s e n t at i ve U14 rugby league team were crowned Country Rugby League champions after they defeated

T

Maitland and Newcastle on Sunday, May 27, at Maitland Sports Ground. This is second major trophy this year for the boys

after they won the Knights Cup in April. The Coasties U13s completed a terrific season also being runners up within both competitions.

entral Coast M a r i n e r s National Youth League (NYL) head coach Tony Walmsley will spend the next four weeks on the hunt for some fresh faces to add to his 2011-2012 Premiership winning squad.

C

With former NYL captain James Oates, striker Mitchell Duke and midfielder Anthony Caceres having all been promoted to the Mariners Hyundai A-League roster, Walmsley is in need of a talented crop of youngsters to join the team as the junior yellow and navy aim for back-to-back titles. Central Coast’s NYL team won the league by four points plus a game in hand last term, ensuring the Mariners achieved Premiership success in both the youth and Hyundai A-League competitions. More importantly, however, the Club places a keen emphasis on ensuring the players that progress through their NYL ranks

have a real opportunity of earning a senior deal be it with the Mariners or elsewhere. “Our program has been among the most successful in the country with a number of players advancing from the National Youth League to full time Hyundai A-League contracts,” Walmsley said. “We have managed to promote Jimmy (Oates), Dukey (Duke) and Anthony (Caceres) this season, but have also helped develop the likes of Mathew Ryan and Bernie Ibini who are now legitimate first team stars.” Meanwhile, Nick Fitzgerald (Brisbane Roar), Nathan Sherlock and Mitch Mallia (both Sydney FC), each spent two years on the Mariners’ NYL roster before securing pro deals in the Hyundai A-League. Walmsley and his web of scouts will be casting their net wide in the search for talented players. As well as attending numerous fixtures, the Mariners are seeking to hold an open trial for players who believe they have what it

takes to step up Australia’s highest youth football level. “We are very eager to tie key players eligible for next seasons’ squad who were with us last season to new deals. “But naturally we will need a few more players to come in and would like to offer ambitious footballers the opportunity to impress,” said Walmsley. “A number of players in the Central Coast Mariners U18 Academy Squad have performed very well this season. “The standard they need to get to is getting higher each year as the NYL becomes more sophisticated,” he said. “At minimum we will be inviting several local players to participate in the program as official train on and injury replacement squad members.” “We are also aware that there is some age-eligible talent playing in the Central Coast Football Premier League and we are keen for those players to trial,” Walmsley said.
