Nation Dance brings rain

INSIDE

Christmas

in Cabonne CALENDAR Your Guide to Events, Entertainment & Shopping for Christmas

Rain fell gently on Molong following the simulated Nation Dance last Sunday at 1 p.m. held at the Rec. grounds as part of NAIDOC celebrations. "We danced for our creator Biame" said cultural advisors, Fleur and Lachie Magick who have been assisting the newly formed Molong Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) with spiritual and cultural advice. "We danced for rain to fill the rivers, creeks and waterholes to help farmers - as well as ourselves to be able to fish again." The day was organised by Molong (AECG) President Carmen Neill and members Fleur and Lachie Magick - joined by young indigeneous dancers from the Molong Central School, Orange and Walgett communities. Fleur explained the celebration "We danced for our creator Biame for our ancestors, for our country, for all the plants and animals, rivers and waterholes and for all creation". More on P.4 (Above) Lachie Magick leads the dance with Guurramali (Molong Central School), James (MCS), Deikan (Walgett), Blade (Molong Central School). More on Page 4

Traditional Western Stores Building Christmas Shopping barricaded @ 'the paper shop'

Entry to businesses at the front of Molong's iconic 'Western Stores" building was cordoned off on Monday evening following a Cabonne Council building inspection and engineers report warning of potential collapse of the

building's awning over the footpath. The building's owner promptly erected seven tempory scaffolding supports to safeguard the awning and access to the shops was restored on Wednesday morning.

Steeped in the tradition of a well run local affectionately known 'paper shop' - Bron, Perry and Jodie and their friendly team have opened their doors through drought, flood, good times and heaps of incredibly challenging ones. Still, they make sure they open their doors 7 days a week from early morning through times of heat, frost, rain, snow and have been doing so for some 40+ years. The local community love this family who have been there for them during births, deaths, marriages, local fundraising support and donations to anything to benefit the town and district. It's time for retirement and to look after their own health. Whilst this popular business is on the market - daughter Jodie has hopped in to help her parents. One thing for sure ... the Trethowans won't

Let's shop and support the Molong 'paper shop' this Christmas ... and after.

Farewell to ‘Miss Emma’ from Molong Early Learning Centre

Jane Evans reports December 6 will mark a milestone in the history of the Molong Early Learning Centre. After 15 years, the Centre’s longest serving director, Mrs Emma Thomas, will celebrate her last day, this Friday. Emma has been an inspiring teacher and director. She has worked tirelessly since 2005 to grow and expand the service based around the community needs. The on-going expansion projects driven by Emma, her staff and the committees of the preschool have transformed the once small, preschool-only facility into an all-encompassing childcare service. Her collaborative approach towards staff, parents, committee members and her commitment to the children have been a great asset to the MELC. Her unwavering approach and determination to ‘get the job done’ has been invaluable. Provided below is a snapshot of her career achievements, and whilst these are noteworthy and her management expertise will be missed, we will mostly miss seeing her happy smile each morning. ‘Miss Emma’ commenced her career in January 2005 as teacher / director at the then, ‘Molong Preschool’. The preschool operated only 4 days per week and had just 30 children enrolled. In 2006, she expanded the centre to operate 5 days per week. Little did she know at the time, this would be the first step towards what would be a continual expansion of the service, spanning the next 14 years with Emma at the helm. In 2009, the preschool committee purchased the building next door to the centre, 16 Riddell St, with a view to future expansion. Jumping on this prime real estate proved to be a great vision as this would shape future expansion for the preschool. Over the coming years, as Molong grew, so too did the need for childcare places in our community. In 2012, Emma incorporated a long day care service into the preschool. A name change to Molong Early Learning Centre in 2013, and another expansion was complete. From 2013 to 2019, Emma, her staff and the varying committees worked tirelessly to secure

government funding in order to continue the expansion of the service, w h i c h included demolition of the previously purchased 16 Riddell Street, construction of an entire new building incorporating three new day care rooms and employment of over 20 staff members. Today the centre has 120 children enrolled! Emma comments on her time at the MELC: “During my time at MELC, my focus has always been on providing the best possible care and education for all children in the Molong community. This has meant providing a service to meet the needs of the Molong Community – they asked for long day care, we provided long day care! They asked for more childcare and preschool places, we provided more childcare and preschool places! “My biggest achievement in my time as Director has been to watch the service grow as it has, but also to bring together a team of educators that work hard and share a drive to deliver the best care to our community’s children. The team we have at the MELC are the best in the business”. Whilst the parents, staff, children and committee are sad to see Emma go, we wish her the best in the future as she takes up the Director’s position at the Cudal Childcare Centre. Emma will be farewelled with an afternoon tea/ drinks on Thursday 12th December at the Molong RSL club from 3pm. This will follow the annual MELC Christmas concert. Children, staff, parents and committee members past and present are all warmly invited to attend, as are members of the Molong Community.

Nation Dance brings rain

Last Sunday was Nation Dance day when we joined thousands of other beautiful Aboriginal people from around Australia all dancing together at 1pm. We danced for our creator Biame, for our ancestors, for our country, for all the plants and animals, rivers and waterholes and for all of creation! We danced for justice for our Aboriginal people - no more deaths in custody, end racism, stop taking our children away, lock up those destroying country and communities for profit - no more locking up according to race - free Black Australia, free our children, free our people, return our lands & waters to be managed by First Nations for the health & wellbeing of all people - and let the rain fall!!!! We finished our dance & gathering at around 3pm and by 7pm the

rain started. Thank you ancestors, thank you Biame. Ngurrubul (love) & Yindyamarra (respect). By the way - we may look fair but very important Aboriginal families represented were the Riley mob Wellington, Dennis mob Walgett, Dixon mob Broken Hill/Walgett, Williams mob Gundabooka, Greenaway & Potter mob Warren, Magick/Madgwick, Sergeant mob Cobbora & Beetson mob Gongolgon. Thank you to Aunty Joyce Williams for Welcome to Country and Blessings to all dance together on Wiradjuri ngurambang (country). Thank you to Deb. Manager of the Molong Health Services (hospital) and NSW Health who donated the food for the event. article by Fleur Magick, AECG Molong.


Seniors Speak Seniors need to be heard - well, that’s what we believe at the Molong Express. There are all kinds of changes happening in Molong and we think it is important that local and district seniors (including retirees, residents of aged accommodation, the disabled thoughts and ideas, opinions, photos, news ... interviews) ...

are included. This is something the Express is able to offer so that these ‘gems’ (most who helped to build Molong) can be included - and have their words of wisdom added to town/community progress. We welcome your input - Call Rozzi 63668017 or mobile 0490734650.

Fire Ban & bikes

I am writing to you about a concern with the total fire ban in force with the NSW fires and the ongoing drought. With a Total Fire Ban in force I assume we all know what our responsibilities are. My main concern is that in a total fire ban we know what machinery, farm equipment, barbeques, any fuelled equipment is not allowed to be used. What we don’t know on a total fire ban day is whether the ridingof dirt bikes, or any tpe of off road bikes include the non riding of dirt bikes, or any type of off road bikes on suitable terrain that is in a total fire ban area, being the whole of NSW. I live in Molong and I have a perimeter along my property being a laneway which the Cobb & Co coaches used for the mail run way back then. Yes it is perfect for the riders to do their trail biking, they have for years, and I love to see them riding up and down which I have observed and enjoyed for many years and more to come.

Is this trail bike riding a risk for an outbreak of fire during a total fire ban. I do not want to see Molong on fire, the most part of NSW has suffered enough, let us not be included. I am hoping that one of your many readers will be able to advise on the use of off road bikes during a total fire ban day. Lynda Smith (Molong)

Praise for Donato’s Directory

Today we received in our letter box a ‘Community Directory’ it has been prepared and sent out by Phil Donato MP’s office. I am most impressed with the layout, presentation and clarity of the information, it is easy to read and find the addresses and phone numbers of a range of emergency and other services and with the magnet on the back will be a handy tool to have close to the telephone. If anYQne has missed out on receiving it through the letterbox drop, I would recommend contacting Mr. Donatds office for a copy, it is worth the effort. Jo Burgess, Molong

Salvos - Always there The teaching staff of the Molong Central School back in the 1960's. Can anyone remember their names, what they taught, know where they are now?

Photo: Taken from the facebook site, Memories of Molong ... thanks to former Molong 'kid' Phil Dunn (formerly East Molong resident and MCS student).

Lyndhurst record second win

Lyndhurst register their second victory over the hapless All Stars and wins to Country and Canowindra in OilsPlus Cricket action Lyndhurst have defeated All Stars in a close match at Hunter Caldwell. Batting First All Stars posted an excellent total of 186 despite being all out in the 37th over. Chris Beatty (29), J Simpson (55), Matt Tink (31) and Jordan Packham (23) batted when for All Stars which allowed them to post a very competitive score. K Stanbridge was the standout bowler for Lyndhurst taking 6 for 31 from 9 overs. Veteran B Mitchell was his usual consistent self taking 3 for 37 from 10 overs. In reply most of Lyndhurst's top order batsmen got away to starts, B Mitchell top scored with 55 capping a great game. P Kingham (25) and Clint Oborn (24) also batted well allowing Lyndhurst to pass the All Stars total in the 36th over. Stu Hobbs (2 for 36) and Chris Beatty (2 for 12) were the pick of the All Stars bowlers. Good confidence boosting win for Lyndhurst. All Stars missed their veterans David Hobbs and Kevin Beatty who are recovering from significant injuries to delicate areas of their bodies that require daily massaging. At the REC Cudal and Country fought out another close game with the premiers coming out victors. Batting first Openers Brett Wykes and Mark Frazer put on a good opening partnership of 65 before Wykes was dismissed for 32. Veteran Frazer went next after his pacemaker failed scoring a useful 27. Nigel Brazier went soon after for

22 and things were looking okay at 3 for 86. However Country's middle and lower order batsmen collapsed and Country were all out in the 35th over for just 140. S Blair ( 3 for 29), M Sabotta (2 for 21) and Jock Hough (2 for 19) bowled very well for Cudal. Chasing the moderate total was made all that much harder for Cudal when they lost early wickets in the run chase. Without Lee Cornish their top order struggled and they slumped to 6 for 64 and needed a miracle. Cudal's lower order made a late dash for victory but they couldn't quite get there and Cudal were all out in the 32nd over for a disappointing 130. Only veteran Jock Gordon (34) made any real impact for Cudal. Country did well to defend the small total and bowlers Damien Hayes (3/39) Nigel Brazier (3/7) and Stu Brisbane (2/15) were the pick of a good all round team effort. After those stunning figures Nigel Brazier who by his own standards is having a lean season with the bat may well now consider becoming a full time bowler. This could be a win win situation for Country as this will allow Nigel to offload not very handy veteran Joe Clayton next season. And it's a win for Joe as it will give him time to focus on his hockey to try and work out a way for Orange Cyms to beat Molong. Another loss for Cudal. After a bright start to the season they have the wobbles and without the batting of Lee Cornish look a shambles at the moment. The competition heavyweights Milthorpe and Canowindra went head to head in the third game of

the round at Canowindra. Batting first Canowindra's top order all fired with C Carpenter (26), Nick Traves (33), B Traves (22), B Schaefer (24) and top scorer Jamie Austin (65no). However their lower order completely collapsed and Canowindra were all out in the 38th over. Despite not batting their 40 overs Canowindra still recorded an imposing total of 214. Milthorpe's bowlers struggled at times however Stu Refern (3/41) and Sam McCrae (3/49) kept them in the game with some tight bowling. Milthorpe's run chase got away to a great start with a 100 plus partnership from the consistent pair of Will Oldham and James Milner. Milthorpe seemed to be cruising to the big total when suddenly Milner was dismissed on 55. Canowindra brought their opening bowlers back into the attack and it paid dividends as wickets then began to fall. When the crucial wicket of Oldham (63) fell Milthorpe couldn't keep the momentum going and fell to be all out for 210 just 4 runs short! Nick Traves bowled 10 exceptionally good overs (3/20) . A narrow win for Canowindra who consolidate their position in the top 5. OILSPLUS TABLE Milthorpe 42, Country 41, Canowindra 37, Magpies 34, Cudal 33, Lyndhurst 29 & All Stars 25. This Saturday Magpies v Canowindra @ REC, Lyndhurst v Country @ Lydnhurst & Milthorpe v Cudal @ Cudal. All Stars bye.
