Walk in to your local store and it's hard not to notice at least one Saxbys soft drink in the fridge. Walk into the supermarket and you will see rows of them! Since 1864 Saxbys Soft Drinks have been making tasty soft drinks in our local area, Taree. George Saxby established Saxbys Soft Drinks in 1864 at the age of 27 in Chatham and now five generations later Saxbys are as strong as ever and making large varieties of flavours.

Traditionally ginger beer was brewed into large wooden casks and bottled in ceramic bottles - all done by hand and shipped via small floats from Chatham, then carried on wheel barrow to local businesses. With the success of Saxbys Ginger Beer comes some extra ginger beer flavours with a twist. Only just released, these new flavours are a companion to the already popular Saxbys Ginger Beer. Ginger Beer with a twist of pineapple, lemon, even cranberry is sure to be a refreshing change for Summer. If you love Saxbys Ginger Beer, you will love the new flavours. Look out for them now.

Most of Dennis Badger’s childhood memories are spent at Old Bar holidaying with his Grandparents at Bagers Beachhouse, a 30 bedroom guest house now known as the Namaste Guest House or Flow Café...

Journey to here...

I was born in Sydney and grew up in the Western Suburbs. My father grew up (along with his sisters and brothers) in Old Bar, when my Grandfather Edward Badger purchased a single storey timber shack in 1922 at the corner of Clerke and David Streets, and added a second floor. It was used as a guest house and is still standing, and still used as a guest house. From the age of six months till about 1964, all the Badger Family used to come together at Christmas time, and we spent our holidays here. There was hardly any houses in Old Bar then, unsealed, dirt roads. It was fantastic. I have fond memories of travelling from Sydney to Taree on steam trains, and the wonderful times we spent here. Totally different from how Old Bar is now..

Why this area?

My star sign is Pisces. I am most contented when I am near water. Never felt like I belonged in the suburbs. After my Grandfather died and The Badger guest house became too much for my Grandmother, I used to come up to Old Bar for my holidays after I got my Driver’s license and a car. I always felt that I belonged here. When the opportunity presented itself to sell up in Sydney and move here I jumped at it.

Favorite place? That’s easy Old Bar Beach.

Favorite food?

Now that’s a hard question. I fancy myself as a connoisseur of fine wine. That doesn’t mean I know a great deal about wine, just the difference between a good and bad drop. But I love all food, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Mauritian, Thai, you name it. It’s hard to resist a BBQ and a good bottle of red around the pool with friends on a Sunday afternoon, a baked lamb dinner, or as my old Dad used to say, “give me a good Aussie steak, eggs and chips any day of the week”.

Favorite Eat-out food? Martine’s Restaurant Old Bar. Fantastic food, excellent wine. We perform at Martine’s regularly because Martine’s has a great atmosphere. Martine and John Mungoven are close friends of ours, and are just wonderful people. All the guys in DE’JA’VU agree with me on this one.

Who inspires you? Anyone with a “can do” positive attitude.

What's happening now? We are looking forward to taking off on a cruise in a month’s time. I am the so called leader of our Band DE’JA’VU. I not only play in the Band, I do all the administrative work, find all the gigs, organise rehearsals etc. The other guys in the Band, Dave Lindley from Oxley Island, and Larry Belton from Taree are incredibly talented and

loc a llyme .com. a u

positive people. It is fantastic to work with Dave and Larry, and they are my friends and inspiration. We have a devoted following of people who constantly come to see us perform and we have made some wonderful friends. I truly love them all.

Where in 20 years? Probably performing in drum heaven. If not we will probably be Rockin’ whatever Nursing home we are in and growing older disgracefully.

Final say....

The last thing I want to do is sound like I’m delivering a sermon. This is the way I look at life, just my opinion. You can be anything you want to be. All you have to do is adopt a positive attitude. This applies to all walks of life. Learn from the people who have done it before you. Never be afraid to ask for help or advice. Don’t expect things to be handed to you on a plate. We have all had to work hard to achieve the things we wanted. Celebrate your achievements, learn from your mistakes (we all make them). Apply yourself to be the best you can be. Don’t take no for an answer. Don’t let your ego exceed your talent. Most of all strive to be happy.

Meeting Julie from True Nature Therapies was the highlight of my week! Another truly inspirational person who has a wealth of experience in helping people. A lovely person who is passionate about what she does... Julie had worked in community services for a number of years until it was time for a change. Guiding people through hard times was always a passion for Julie and looking for something a little bit different was a challenge. Considering beauty therapy was one option but it wasn’t quite right and after much consideration natural therapy was the niche she was after. Being able to provide a wide range of natural therapies after many years of training has given Julie the opportunity to open her own studio. Treatments such as La Stone Hot Stone Massage, an ancient relaxation therapy using stones from native Indians which are more than 1000 years old. Every month the stones are returned to the earth to be re-energised under a full moon.

Using the Power Plate can stimulate your body’s reflex and makes your body work harder. 20 minutes equals 60 minutes of strenuous exercise. Being a qualified Hypnotherapist, Julie has been able to help smokers battling cigarette addiction and some clients have quit after smoking for more than 50 years. Being in a total state of relaxation is the key to the success of the treatment, by encouraging positive messages to the subconscious. Hypnotherapy can also be used for anxiety, self esteem, pain management, weight loss and also general well-being. It is rare to find someone who absolutely loves their job and whether it's to relieve stress or to kick a habit, Julie has a variety of natural therapies to choose from. T

Totally self sufficient... It took owner builders Darren & Tess quite a few years to find their piece of paradise, a beautiful 30 acre property not too far from Forster. This unique property is still under construction, but is well on its way to be one of the houses of the future. Totally off the grid.. Good bye power bills! Next to the house is a garage which hosts the solar panels which generate enough power comfortably for a family of five. During the day the panels charge 12 batteries (weighing 80kgs each) stored in the shed next to the house, the inverter then feeds it back to the house. It is surprising how little room the batteries and inverter need. In Darren’s case, the battery case serves as a useful bench! For around the cost of installing conventional power, the solar was by far the best solution. Mackies Electrics consulted with Darren to determine the best system for him & his family.

solar Solar GRID connect.. With the rising prices of power, (and just about everything else for that matter) families are finding it harder and harder to afford to pay their power bills. Wouldn’t it be a different world if we had discovered solar power first!

Not only is it a big saving for you and your family, you are using a clean energy. On average a family of 4 can omit more than 10 tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere and by using solar power, you can dramatically reduce it to nothing!

So how does solar power work..?

What’s sort of savings can I expect?

Simply solar panels absorb sunlight and generate DC power, it is then converted to AC standard electricity via a ‘Grid Connect Inverter’.

Depending on your usage, an average family of four can require around 7000 kWh of energy per year. You can reverse this whole amount depending on the system you use. A government scheme called ‘The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme’ or SRES, generates STCs, small scale technology certificates which subsidises the purchase of your solar system. (Also other systems like solar hot water and small scale wind systems.)

There are 2 ways it can be used: 1. Power can be used as it is generated during the day while the sun is shinning or 2. A mett meter can be installed exporting power back to the grid at a rate of 6c - 8c and in some cases, eliminating a power bill.

More info:

Off the Grid or stand alone systems.. This is a system which operates solely on its own (see previous page), using only the sun to generate power. Once again it converts to standard AC storing power into batteries which have a life expectancy of around 15 - 20 years. In some cases the cost of installing solar can be far cheaper than tapping into your electricity supplier. Do your research and find out which system best suits you and your family.

kids in the Garden How great it is to see more people putting in small gardens over the past few years and providing fresh healthy nutritious food for the whole family. This increased trend has been very noticeable at Greenpatch.

Gardening can be enjoyed by all ages and that includes the young ones. By starting young they learn where food comes from and have fun watching and growing some easy produce. Here are some great ideas for planting in the next few months.

Bush/dwarf and climbing beans can be planted now and up until mid February direct in well drained good soil. Provide a wire support or small tripod for the climbing beans to climb on. Try planting pumpkins with the beans and train them up the support. It also lends itself well as a place in the garden where kids can hide and play games with the help of the leaf cover providing some shade.

Luffa is a spring/summer vine and needs support to climb also. Fast growing, with large yellow flowers and produces a large gourd fruit that forms in autumn. When it has dried off a durable sponge has formed inside and after peeling off the outside skin the sponge is ready to be used in the bathroom or kitchen.

Over 650 Varieties

gre e npatc hseeds.c om . a u

Gourds grow similar to the Luffa, come in various shapes from 5cm to up to a metre long. Some are bottle shaped and others long and snaky. Great on trellises or just allowed to ramble on the ground. Make ideal craft projects once they have dried off musical instruments, bowls and cups, ornaments. Giant flowering sunflowers can be grown easily and look terrific when in flower. The flowering varieties of Giant Russian & Mammoth sunflowers can grow as large as a dinner plate. It is a fast growing plant that likes a fertile, good drained soil and a sunny spot to grow.

Sprouts can be grown indoors, are fun and yummy to eat. Some easy ones to begin with are alfalfa, mung beans. Soak the seeds overnight in a glass jar with water and cover with fly screen and a rubber band around the top of the jar to hold screen in place. Drain the seeds the next morning. To sprout the seeds: Rinse with cold water and drain twice daily. These are fun and great to watch the new roots and shoots develop on a daily basis. After 4 days of growing the sprouts can be eaten and can take up to 7 days to fully grow. In summer the sprouts can be stored in the refrigerator if they haven’t all been eaten.

Keep your soil moist for all your summer plantings.

School Gardening


Manning Valley Anglican College

Kindergarten students from Manning Valley Anglican College have been enjoying getting their hands dirty and loving it! Watching veggies and herbs grow is fascinating for the children, who also have a compost and worm farm which are fed scraps from collections of leftovers placed in buckets around the playground. Some of their plantings include lettuce, bok choy, tomatoes, strawberries and corn as well as some herbs. The children then take some of their fresh veggies home. Some of the plants are starting to seed and will be collected and stored by the children ready for the next season. As well as gardening, the children raised chickens from fertile eggs and cared for them after hatching. It's so lovely to see the children exploring the cycle of gardening as well as raising chickens... Happy gardening kids! T

boating & Fishing

Yo Ho Ho! Santa’s on his way - not many sleeps now! So I guess it’s time to start bribing the kids “Santa won’t come if you're naughty!” “Santa won’t come if you don’t clean your room!” “Santa won’t come if you don’t eat your veggies!” “Santa won’t come if you don’t help me catch some beach worms!” How’d that last one get there? What’s Santa got to do with beach worms? Well, to tell you the truth - absolutely nothing - but it seems a good way to start the Locally Me Fishing Page. Christmas holidays and kids go “hand in hand” with fishing! I have some great memories of my Dad teaching me how to fish when I was kid - no “flash” new carbon graphite rods or soft plastics in those days, just a cork hand-line and hand caught bait! I remember when I was nine years old my oldest brother gave me a five foot solid fibreglass rod and a small Alvey reel for Christmas - you know, I loved that rod and reel and used it for years and years - I’ve still got it hanging in the shed - fifty years on! I guess I learned to love fishing at a very early age, and I am extremely grateful to those interested people that taught me to love and respect the “art” of fishing something you can do for your own kids. Remember the old saying “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day - give him a fish hook and he eats for life!” Enough of the “Little River Band” and “Reminiscing” - what’s been happening on the local fishing scene!

NSW Fisheries are seeking feedback in regard to recreational restrictions on capture of Jew Fish, they have several options to restrict bag limits and size - at this stage the preferred option is to limit recreational fishers to one fish over 70cm per day - apparently too many fish in that 45 - 70cm in length are being taken and putting significant pressure on breeding stocks, so keep your ears open for any proposed changes - more info on NSW DPI website. Prawns should be running in Saltwater Lagoon. Remember five nights after the full moon is time to have a look for these tasty little morsels - the Manning River Schoolies have had a slow start to the season - hope Santa turns it on for Christmas! School jew and bigger fish are still haunting the beach and the river - a local lad weighed a very good fish at the bait shop he caught in the river - 20.00kgs caught on a 4” Gulp. Mud Crabs, Flathead and bream are the go in the river - the Whiting have been quiet and so have the Blue Swimmers. Got to go! I’ve got to take the dog for a run! On behalf of all at Bohnock Bait & Tackle we wish you all a peaceful and happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Don’t Forget The Lifejackets!
