Game on for 2010 election

Pages 12 - 15

Bellweather seat Eden-Monaro is once again tipped to indicate the results of the parties or in some polls, a short lead to the ALP. To date, three candidates have August 21 Federal election. Since Prime Minister Julie Gillard announced the election nominated for the election: sitting Labor member Mike Kelly, Greens Catherine Moore date, polls have variously shown either 50/50 preference between the two major and Liberals David Gazard. Read some of their comments on page 5.

MCCR backing men’s cancer needs Following on from the successful establishment of an oncology unit in Cooma, plus a home-style dialysis unit at Cooma Hospital, now there is a call for improved urological services in Cooma. At a recent meeting of the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research (MCCR), local doctor Andrew Egan was able to express his views on what he sees as a rapidly growing problem in this region. He would like the MCCR to take up the cause and provide the necessary leadership to “make something happen”. Dr Egan said the public urological services available at The Canberra Hospital have “stuffed patients around”. He told the meeting of a couple of patients who have experienced very unsatisfactory service in Canberra – one who waited for four hours after travelling to Canberra only to be told he couldn’t be seen that day and sent home. The same patient was later booked for surgery, spent four hours lying on a trolley in readiness and was then sent home that evening when his surgery was cancelled.

Another patient who waited four months for an appointment at the urology clinic was booked for surgery which should have taken place within 30 days. Eight months later, this patient passed away, still awaiting the surgery. Dr Egan believes Cooma could tap into a new urology service which has started in Bega, hopefully using a specialist working with the service on at least a one-day-per week basis for consultation and diagnosis. Dr Egan said some diagnostic procedures could be carried out using the Cooma Hospital, and these could lead to early detection, earlier treatment and a better result for the patient. Major surgery would still need to be carried out at a tertiary hospital such as Canberra. Dr Egan said he had discussed his idea with the local Prostate Cancer group, other doctors and local hospital administration – all of whom see a need for a local service. Chairman of the prostate Cancer Support Group, Chris Reeks said he was all for increased services to the region. He said the Monaro has a high incidence of prostate cancer

and his group is keen to assist sufferers. He agreed with Dr Egan that more services are needed locally to assist with early diagnosis and management. MCCR will fund equipment President of MCCR, Sue Litchfield, said the committee would fund the equipment needed to provide the services. Mrs Litchfield said the recent fundraising event, ‘Dancing with Cooma Stars’ had been organised to raise $50,000 to buy a probe for beast cancer diagnosis at Cooma. The $121,000 raised was far above the committee’s expectation and now the committee wants to help with a men’s program to assist with prostate cancer in the region. “Under the guidance of Dr Andrew Egan, we will be applying for a new urological service to be provided. “We will be asking the Greater Southern Area Health Service to apply for the establishment of this service”, Mrs Litchfield said.

By Gail Eastaway As the state and nation lurch toward their respective elections, it’s time we voters started making a few noises about what we see is wrong in our community. From discussion, formal amd informal, with local folk, there appears to be plenty that’s right, but there’s also a plethora of problems which need to be fixed. Last Tuesday, a meeting to discuss health matters contained some interesting perspectives from both politicians and the community. Apart from the ongoing message that our health system truly is pretty crook, there were a couple of side issues which should be addressed. The Monaro and Snowy Mountains regions is probably luckier than some regions – its proximity to snow, sea and a large city means we are well placed. But we all recognise the need for growth – not a tsunami of people and industry washing across the treeless plains, but steady, sustainable growth that will shore up our economic future and through that, our social future as well. So what are some easily achievable aims we could be embracing and making our politicians act on? Easy – laundry and cooking.

Tuesday’s health meeting made passing reference to the good old days, when Cooma Hospital had an experienced and capable kitchen staff which cooked good food on the premises for the patients and also for the Meals on Wheels service. The hospital sourced its ingredients locally, employed local people and provided good quality, fresh food which tasted like food. These days, food is trucked in, heated up and according to those who have to eat it, largely tasteless. It doesn’t have to be like that. Similarly the hospital laundry – once completed on site, now this service too, is handled remotely, despite there being adequate local services, employing local people, to do the job here. At one stage, the hospital employed about six people in its kitchen and another six in the laundry. All those jobs for people who live in our region. Our Correctional Centre is another ‘institution’ which could do more locally too – for instance, using its kitchen to cook rather than having meals brought in from Goulburn to be reheated. Local services, local produce, fresh food, a local asset – a local win! It’s not rocket science – someone with a calculator and few spare minutes could make a comparison between the two alternatives.

up together. Noddy shares the cats’ beds as well as their food and he eats out of their bowls too. Noddy constantly ‘talks’ to the cats and coos at the kittens making sure they are safe. He has never lived in a cage but has free range of the house and because of his injuries can’t be socialised with the other birds in the larger aviaries outside.

TEL EL T HO O A H COOM A Health roundtable in Cooma M O HOTEL O C A health roundtable held at in Cooma by Nationals preventative neasures, as well as clinical duties. A OMA

candidate for Monaro John Barilaro and Shadow Minister for Health Jillian Skinner last Tuesday, attracted a small but vocal group of local residents. The purpose of the roundtable was to discuss health issues, with Mrs Skinner and Mr Barilaro looking for local feedback on local health services. Mrs Skinner made reference to her policy “Making it Work” and also introduced a new website designed for community input: www.> Mrs Skinner said the website, which was launched on July 1, had already had 760 hits. Mrs Skinner also wanted feedback on changes at locals hospitals, following Premier Kristine Keneally’s claim that the health system would change from July 1, following an agreement with the Federal Government. She reinforced the Liberals promise to reinstate local hospital boards, to allow local decisions to be made for local heath services. Mr Barilaro told the meeting the Nationals and Liberals were committed to bringing a good health system to NSW. Liberals candidate for Eden-Monaro, David Gazard also attended the meeting and said from his experience in the electorate “all roads lead to Canberra’. He said he had heard of linen being transported to Wollongong from Pambula to be laundered, even though there were facilties and staff in Pambula capable of doing the job, a situation he said was inefficient and disadvantaged local services. President of the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research, Sue Litchfield, said there was a similar situation in Cooma, where the local hospital manager did not have the authority to allocate local work to local operators. Bronnie Taylor said there was an emphasis on ‘bums on seats or bums in beds’ to justify service provision, not on, for instance, renal nurses who could also provide advice on





“When I came here 15 years ago, we had a working kitchen at the hospital – everyone loved it and people were proud to work there. That has all been eroded now because the service isn’t local. “We need to get back to local decision with local people”. Dorothy Povey asked if more services/ procedures could be made available in Cooma. She said she and her husband had been travelling from Cooma to Bega and Canberra for the past two and a half years and recently spent three days and two nights in emergency in The Canberra Hospital before they could get a bed. Neville Phee explained he had been a former member of the Cooma Hospital Board. He said at some stage there had been a shortage of funds that could have been traded out, but instead the boards were abolished, and now the hospital system “owes millions”. Discussion turned to the work the community has done to provide extra services in Cooma – this includes the oncology unit at the hospital and now the dialysis unit. Continued P10....

New chef at Snowy Mountains Grammar School When Snowy Mountains Grammar School invited tenders for their catering contract, they knew exactly what they were looking for. “We wanted a quality product and we wanted to partner with a local company” says Andrew Rostron, the Principal. “Our catering partner feeds over 50 Boarders and Boarding staff a day during term which equates to around 35,000 meals a year. We needed to find someone who could provide the volume of meals needed while maintaining quality and variety. “Our standards are extremely high as we are responsible for the total nutrition of our Boarders during term time. The menu needs to be nutritionally balanced and appropriate for growing teenagers, with the accent on fresh produce, and choice while being appealing to the teenage palate. “Troy and Bec Smith of Rokits Edibles in Leesville Industrial estate impressed us with a tender which exactly filled these requirements and with the culinary experience they have between them, we believe they have the right tools to keep the students going about there busy lifestyles.”

Troy and Bec have worked in some of the mountains best establishments from Novotel Lake Crackenback to Crackenback Cottage. Their aim, with their extensive knowledge of food and service, is to give the Students at SMGS the best dining experience of any boarding school in Australia. Troy will be taking on the Jamie Oliver approach to school catering requirements with education on different styles of food and nutrition and also teaching dining room etiquette, so as to promote a more formal family orientated dining experience with education still the key to keeping our growing minds inspired on a day to day basis. Over the holiday period, the school’s kitchen has been completely refurbished with state of the art cooking and serving equipment. But the use of technology doesn’t end there. “We always rely on feedback from our customers to improve our product” says Troy “students will be able to give us their comments via Facebook and the web so that we get real time feedback on their likes and dislikes. This information will be then used to tailor our menu to suit the growing needs of the student body”

Lucky $4,500 winner

The Cooma Lions Club/Cooma Hotel ‘lucky joker’ was won on Friday night with John Crisp collecting $4,500. Proceeds from the weekly draw have benefitted

several local organisations, including the Yallambee Lodge and Sir William Hudson Nursing Home. John Crisp is pictured with licensee Louie Elia and Matt Hassall.

Fire The NSW Fire Brigade has been busy helping the Ambulance Service last week while they were busy. At 8am on Friday in Sharp Street Cooma, they assisted a lady who was having breathing difficulties and transported her to Cooma hospital for further treatment.

on standby to take him into surgery to remove it.

Emergency Services

On the same morning at 8.50am they were called to an accident on the Snowy Mountains Highway, where a minibus with 11 people in it had overturned. The people all from Sydney were on their way to the snow. Seven were injured, with one being taken to Canberra Hospital from Cooma. Police Ambulance SES and the NSW Fire Brigade all attended the scene. A vigilant neighbour noticed flames coming from the roof of a house in Sellar Street in Cooma at 10.20pm on Sunday night. The occupants were unaware that a fire had broken out in the roof of their house as the smoke detector had yet to be activated. It appears a build up of rubbish and birds nests around the flue of a slow combustion heater caught alight; it took fire crews between half an hour to three quarters of an hour to extinguish the fire. There was damage to the roof, timber beams, walls and ceilings from the fire, smoke and water. Ambulance At about midday on Saturday paramedics were called to a property in Peakview where some children had been playing in under and around a large tree. A large branch broke off and landed on a nine year old girl, who was stable when they arrived but suffering back pian. She was taken to Cooma Hospital and later released. A nine-month-old boy from Jindabyne swallowed a two-dollar coin on Saturday afternoon, he was x-rayed at Cooma Hospital where it was discovered the coin was lodged just below his airway. He was transferred to Canberra Hospital where a paediatric surgical team were

Police Cooma police are asking for witnesses to an accident where one vehicle hit another vehicle and drove off without leaving their details. The accident occurred in Massie Street at 7.30pm on Sunday July 18. It is believed a maroon Nissan hit a parked car, causing damage to the parked vehicle, the maroon Nissan will have extensive front end damage to it, anyone with information is requested to contact Cooma police on 6452 0099. Vandals have broken windows to Monaro High School sometime between July 16 and July 18, anyone with information is asked to contact Cooma police. A 21-year-old male from Kirkham NSW was pulled over on Kosciusko Road Jindabyne at 2am on Sunday July 18. He was noticed driving his vehicle without his headlights on and also crossing to the wrong side of the road over a medium strip. He was travelling with three other males in the vehicle at the time. He was breath tested and recorded a positive reading of 0.150, three times over the legal limit and will be facing court at a later date. The highway patrol has also been kept busy over the weekend, with many vehicles pulled over for speeding offences. The highest recorded was a 39 year old ACT male who was travelling at 141 kmh in a 10 km zone. He was caught near Bredbo and will receive a $816 fine and loose his license for three months. Police are reminding people to be careful with their skis and snowboards as the theft rate has risen since the snow has started falling. Zero tolerance is what people are facing for fraudulently trying to use the ski lifts in the mountains this year. The offence carries a fraud charge, court and a record.

Danny remembered at CIT Local man Danny McFadden has been honoured with a special space within the Canberra Insititute of Technology. The “Daniel McFadden artspace” was officially opened last Wednesday at the Canberra Institute of Technology’s “Rainbow Room”.

This room has been designed to assist the mentally ill. Danny was born in Cooma, and died here on August 7, 2008. His parents Ruth and Kevin McFadden were present at the launch of his special artspace.

The Club now has one of the best TAB facilities in the region since this new area has been completed. It offers punters a better environment with new screens, up to date race information around from the country, plenty of space and comfortable seating where you can watch the races. Two screens placed one above the other offer you the opportunity to watch Sky Channel 1 and Sky Channel 2 simultaneously, so you can watch two races from different locations. There are also several other screens for you to view, so you don’t miss any of the action. The TAB lounge area is open daily from 10am until

close of business. You can now place your bets or get some change for the machines from the specially marked TAB area at the bar. Currently under construction is the second outdoor area for smokers, which is adjacent to the poker machine area. This new area will be much larger than the current ‘smokers room’ and offer smokers to be more involved in what is happening inside the club. The Club has also taken over the catering and no longer is it contracted to outsiders, but run wholly by the club. The new chef Gary Jorge said at this stage they are starting off small and offering basic bistro meals, but as his staff grows he will be looking to expand the menu. At the moment we offer fresh produce at cheap prices for both members and guests.

Vale, Kevin Cant Kevin Cant was born on December 4, 1937 in the small farming community of Old Rothbury, near Cessnock. In those days the family was involved in dairying but nowadays the land is used to cultivate grapes and a boutique winery stands where Kevin and his five sisters used to work and play. Life changed for Kevin in 1950 when both his father and grandfather passed away, and his mother, pregnant with her seventh child, moved the family into town. Kevin won a bursary to attend Maitland Boys High School and in his spare time worked to supplement the family income. After completing his Leaving Certificate, Kevin attended Newcastle Teachers College and on completion of his course was posted to Island Bend. The Snowy Mountains were very different from the Hunter Valley, but he took to the area with relish. Always a keen fisherman, he now discovered trout fishing which became a lifetime pleasure. He enjoyed bush walking and skiing, the latter enjoyed at Cabramurra where pigskin covers were placed over the skis for the long haul back up the hill after each run. The introduction of a rope tow was a reason for great excitement. Kevin worked for the SMA during some of the longer school holidays and was always immensely proud of his connections with the Scheme. He taught in many schools which no longer exist such as Sioux City and Bungarby, and in the middle

1960s was appointed Relief Teacher for the area. He continued in this position for six years until his marriage to Moya in 1969 when he took up a permanent position at Cooma Public School. His three children, Richard, David and Paula were born in Cooma and since Cooma offered all that the family required, it became their home for forty years. Kevin identified very strongly with Cooma Public School and would have been proud to know that some of the children formed a guard of honour at his funeral. Kevin suffered a stroke in 2003 which left him paralysed down the right side and without any speech. He managed at home with much help from Home Care until 2009 when a second stroke forced him into the Nursing Home for total care. Kevin died on May 20 very peacefully with some of his family at his side. In concluding the eulogy, Richard said: You can now rise up from the wheelchair Throw away your walking stick And look around: The trout are always biting, The non-frost season lasts more than two days, No one’s ever heard of politicians, The right bower is always yours, Water traps repel golf balls. The traffic lights are always green, St George are mostly winning, And John Wayne rides again.

EDITOR Gail Eastaway - 02 6452 0312 0408 930 180

More transparency requested Editor, The Monaro Post (June 16, page 14, ‘Whan applauds State Budget’) reported on an announcement by Member for Monaro, Steve Whan of NSW Budget investments that included $32 million for Snowy Hydro Scheme rehabilitation and a total of $68 million for upgrades and extensions to electricity supply networks. The Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme is operated by Snowy Hydro Ltd, whilst the electricity transmission and distribution networks are operated by Transgrid, Country Energy, Energy Australia and Integral Energy. These organisations are government owned corporate entities with their own management structures and Boards of Directors. As such, they are responsible for the day to day operation, maintenance and upgrades of their assets: and are thus fully responsible for financing these activities from income; or if appropriate from borrowings. For example, Snowy Hydro is a very profitable business. Since commencing operations in June 2002 it has paid total dividends to its three government shareholders - with NSW holding a 58% share - of $430 million and has retained earnings of $725 million (mainly retained profits together with depreciation of $35-$55 million per annum). It is thus more than capable of funding Scheme rehabilitation


costs WITHOUT a budget allocation - which as far as I am aware it has never received - from the NSW government; or any of the other shareholding governments. Similarly, as far as I can establish from the limited information available; the NSW transmission and distribution businesses mentioned above HAVE NOT received budget allocations from the State budget but have financed operations, maintenance and upgrades of their systems from income and borrowings. So, for Mr Whan to include the Snowy Hydro rehabilitation program and upgrades to the electricity transmission and distribution networks as budget allocations - when these costs are met by their respective organisations and are thus paid for by electricity consumers - is misleading in the extreme, creating the impression; erroneously, that they require ongoing government support. The people of NSW are entitled to expect - and deserve - far greater transparency and honesty from their elected representatives. Max Talbot, Cooma.

Federal election 2010 comment Labor – Mike Kelly

“An important facet of standing in elections is, for The Greens, the opportunity to raise awareness about issues that are often dismissed by the older parties,” Catherine said. “The Greens will be of course be campaigning as always

on local issues that are of concern to the communities of Eden-Monaro, such as appropriate health facilities and better public transport options, but we also want to give due attention to some of the larger-picture issues which in the end affect all of us. “I am thrilled that people with such high level of expertise in their chosen fields have agreed to participate in these conversations and hope that people in the communities we will be visiting will come along and ask questions and contribute their own thoughts to these discussions.”

Confirmed dates and places: July 29 – Tony Kevin, Cooma August 1 – Keith Mcilroy, Bega August 3 – Tony Kevin, Queanbeyan



Sitting member Mike Kelly said he has two main election issues: that he has delivered on all the promises from the 2007 election and that he wants to see the region continue to grow sustainably. Dr Kelly said he was pleased he had been able to see through to completion projects which assisted HACC, The Hub in Cooma, Cooma swimming pool and health reforms. He said he had a big vision for the region and if re-elected would continue to encourage more renewable energy projects, the roll out of the National Broadband Network (NBN), and CPRS. He said he was very keen to work with local farmers to ensure a viable, sustainable future which was capable of dealing with a ‘worst case’ scenario. He said he would also like to expand the tourism seasons and improve education opportunities, especially through using the NBN. He said there was a lot of potential in the region for increased cultural and eco-tourism. Dr Kelly said he also wanted to see progress on his government’s trade and training high schools as well as super clinics, for example, the one proposed for Jindabyne. He said he was looking forward to a debate with Liberal candidate David Gazard in Jindabyne on August 3 and had invited Minister for Broadband Stephen Conroy to the region for a forum prior to the election.

Liberal – David Gazard

Liberal candidate for Eden-Monaro David Gazard today outlined the approach he would take to stand up for residents and secure a better future for Eden-Monaro. Speaking after the Prime Minister nominated August 21 as the date for the next federal election, Mr Gazard said he would consult, engage and fight for the people he would serve. “I think it’s important that people right across the electorate know that I will stand up for them and the vital services they need,” he said. “I will work in the communities for the communities to know their needs and aspirations and then to fight for them. “I want people to know right from the outset that I will listen to them and work for them. I will take their calls, answer their correspondence and operate with a spirit of openness and accountability. “I want people to know that I will be their representative in Canberra, not just represent Canberra to them. “People across Eden-Monaro hold diverse concerns and they need a strong local member who will seize the initiative and act on those concerns.” He said that he had enjoyed meeting and listening to people in the eight weeks he had been full-time campaigning across the seat and was looking forward to the next five weeks leading up to polling day. “We are fortunate to live in an incredibly beautiful, diverse part of Australia in the best communities,” he said. “I want to serve the people to preserve the best of our communities, to make us more prosperous and more vibrant with a better future. “We know that households and businesses have had to tighten their belts. A Coalition Government will respect the taxpayers’ dollar and we’ll make the government tighten its belt too. “We’ll end the waste, repay the debt and stop the new taxes. We will stand up for the people of Ausralia and I will stand up with real action for the people of Eden-Monaro.”

Greens – Catherine Moore

The Greens candidate for Eden-Monaro is Catherine Moore. The Greens will hold a series of “Conversations” on various topics such as climate change, biodiversity, forests and forest industry adjustment, nuclear weapons and nuclear power, refugees and Green economics as part of The Greens in EdenMonaro 2010 Federal Election campaign. In the lead-up to the election on August 21, Greens candidate for Eden-Monaro Catherine Moore will hold conversations in various parts of the electorate with a range of people including Tony Kevin, former diplomat and author of “A

Broadband for seniors

Cooma-Monaro Shire Council is urging local organisations that support seniors to apply for a free ‘Broadband for Seniors Kiosk’ to help older people get connected online. Council’s general manager, John Vucic said the Australian Government had committed $15 million for the provision of 2000 internet kiosks to organisations that supported seniors and who sought to host a kiosk in their venue. “Community groups, such as seniors clubs, libraries, neighbourhood centres and aged care facilities can apply for a Broadband for Seniors Kiosk. The aim of the project is to help older people gain confidence using computer technology, and to build community participation and social inclusion amongst older Australians,” John Vucic said. Successful applicants receive two desktop computers, internet access, two computer desks, three computer chairs, training material and support from NEC Australia and its consortium partners Audit Learning Australia, Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association and the University of the Third Age Online. The supply of the computers and internet connectivity is free and after June 30 next year, the computers

The Snowy River Shire Council would like to advise all local businesses that footpaths must remain clear and accessible at all times. Items on footpaths, inclusive of signage, tables, chairs, umbrellas, sale racks etc, must not in any way impede pedestrian pathways. This helps to ensure continued pedestrian comfort and safety, as well as maintaining a tidy appearance in our towns and villages. Council asks that businesses consider pedestrians including parents with prams, pet owners, and persons of all ages and abilities when setting up footpath displays. Any items interfering with pedestrian access or posing a safety risk (i.e., improperly secured items; trip hazards etc) can be removed by an authorised Council compliance officer. At this time Council is drafting a policy related to footpath

From P3... But there is a need for more facilties for the renal unit. Barbara Scanes told the meeting the patients using the renal unit need a “buddy” to be with them during their treatment, whether that be for a couple of hours or eight She said unfortunately the volunteers just aren’t available and the unit desperately needs nursing staff to assist. But the committee has been told there is no funding available for a renal nurse. At the same time, at least one renal patient travels to Canberra every second day for dialysis – if the renal car which was provided by the State Government two years ago is available, that patient can travel in that, but if that car is not available, then a taxi is sent from Queanbeyan to Cooma to collect the patient and after treatment, a taxi transports the patient back to Cooma – the cost of this travel is $200/day, or $800/week. Mrs Skinner said these costs, plus the costs of running the renal car, would cover the cost of employing a renal nurse. The meeting was told a renal nurse who lives in the area is now travelling to Canberra to work each day, but would prefer to be able to work at Cooma Hospital. The meeting also discussed the situation at Jindabyne, where a HealthOne facility which was proposed to be established has not eventuated. Mrs Skinner asked Jindabyne resident Robert Thomas his opinion of the situation. Mr Thomas said Jinadabyne faced an urgent situation – with no after-hours services available.


Mr Thomas said the medical centre in Jindabyne did a great job, but he said if there was a major emergency, there was no triage, no emergency accommodation and no after hours service on site to deal wth it. Mr Thomas said the $100,000 spent on consultation over HealthOne had just been a waste of money. He suggested Jindabyne needed, at the very least, a situation like the Delegate MPS. NSW Liberals & Nationals ‘Making It Work’ health policy: 1. replace Labor’s huge and out-of-touch Area Health Services with smaller Health Districts; 2. appoint Boards to the Health Districts and make them accountable to the communities they serve; 3. restore the decision-making power of Hospital General Managers and give authority back to expert clinicians; 4. further develop clinical networks that link medical experts across the system; 5. appoint a qualified medical practitioner as Executive Clinical Director in each Health District; and 6. publish information about health service management including Budget allocations, the capacity of an institution to undertake treatments and patient care outcomes through an independent Information Bureau. There is consensus between most health stakeholders, including the Federal Government, that the NSW health system needs a flatter and more locally focused management structure that better utilises the expertise of medical practitioners, nurses and other health care professionals.

Information on seniors’ activities, email, nursing homes and retirement villages, libraries, sporting and social clubs, as well as a host of other useful information to improve quality of life for older Australians, is able to be accessed via the kiosks. According to the World Internet Project 2008 report, 70 percent of Australians aged over 64 don’t use the internet. “Many older people are missing out on a plethora of resources and opportunities to communicate and connect to communities online – something that has been shown to enrich lives,” John Vucic said. “I believe the Australian Government’s Broadband for Seniors Initiative will help alleviate seniors’ feelings of social isolation and being ‘left behind’ in a technological age. I encourage local groups that serve older people to get behind the project and support their local citizens.” For more information or to apply for a Broadband for Seniors Kiosk visit or contact NEC Australia on 1300 795 897.

Get mobile again with Country Mobility Trends “Mobility is Freedom� is not only the motto but also the firm belief of proprietors Stephanie and Heinz Gloor of Country Mobility Trends (CMT) at Polo Flat. Always someone to embrace a new idea, Heinz and Stephanie are giving something back to the community in which they have lived for many years. Their active lifestyle has allowed them to experience how important mobility is, especially when age, illness or accident reduces that mobility. Add that knowledge to a belief that more should be accessible in this region and Country Mobility Trends has the solutions to most mobility problems. Heinz and Stephanie offer a wide range of mobility, home heath and rehabilitation equipment for sale, hire and service. From power chairs to golf buggies, electric beds to lift chairs, CMT either has it in stock or can order it in. Stephanie is very conscious of fitting the right equipment to the right client, ensuring the best possible combination for each situation. And the equipment on offer is of the highest quality – the latest design and up to date technology which transforms a mobility scooter, for example, into a desirable vehicle for home and street. And for the cost of a battery charge (about $1.40 per charge) the scooters will run for 30km, depending on terrain and carry load.. Heinz has the theory that with the right mobility option, people can continue to access parts of the region, like Mt Kosciuszko, even when walking long distances is a problem. He and Stephanie recently trialled one of their scooters from Charlotte Pass to Rawson’s Pass and the equipment passed the test with flying colours. They will have a couple of buggies available for trial at Cooma Golf Club this week, enabling people to get around the course with ease and comfort, so they can still enjoy a favourite



pastime. Some of the scooters are portable and can be dismantled to fit into vehicles – this can be a real help when shopping in a large shopping centre. As well as scooters and buggies for sale or hire CMT also offers scooter racks for vehicles, once again for sale or hire, portable ramps and mats. As well, there is a range of walkers, wheelchairs, tables, shower chairs and stools, toilet seat raisers and frames, commodes, hoists, sticks, canes and reaching aids. Stephanie said some of the equipment available would allow patients to leave hospital earlier, because they have the necessary aids for recovery at home. While CMT is based at Polo Flat, Heinz and Stephanie can bring their equipment to you in their van. CMT does servicing and repairs locally, so there is no need for clients to travel or send their equipment away. To see what is available, go to www. To make an appointment to inspect the equipment, or have it brought to you, phone 0457 850 300 or email to sales@countrymobilitytrends.

Great holiday fun at The Hub Over the school holidays the Hub Youth Centre in Vale Street Cooma held various workshops for kids aged between 12 and 17 years. On Friday a ‘Photography workshop’ was held with local filmmaker and photographer Rewa Nolan at the helm. The participants of the workshop learnt how to use the various controls on their digital cameras, make various filters for them and were then taken out into the community to take some shots and experiment with what they had learnt in the morning.

Hub new staff The Hub in Vale Street Cooma has once again opened its doors to the youth of the region. Comprising of three energetic and highly trained youth workers employed by different agencies. The Hub is set to provide a safe place for the youth to ‘hang out’. The youth staff all play different roles covering all aspects of youth services. PJ Ward is the new Youth Project Co-ordinator and she has a background in nursing, social science and criminal justice, specialising in youth and community programs, she is employed by the YMCA. PJ is a long time resident of the area and many will recognise her face from the swimming pool where she has also taught children to swim over the years. Nikki Rabbitte is the Youth Health worker employed by Southern General Practice Network. She is also a registered nurse and midwife. Nikki too is a long time resident of the local area and has been involved in youth community work for several years now. Emma Green is the Youth Development Officer for Cooma Monaro Shire Council. Emma previously worked in a circus, performing acrobatics and has made her way over to community services. She has always worked with young people and gains great satisfaction from this. The Hub is open during the school terms from 3pm until 5 pm as a drop in centre for 12 to 17 year olds. Here they can safely come and just ‘hang out’ or play the video games, watch a DVD, do their homework or use the Internet that has the appropriate bans on it. There is a library with plenty of books, craft activities and much more. The kids can also talk to the staff in confidence if they feel they are unable to talk to their parents or family if they have a problem. During the school holiday periods there will be various programs run for the kids, all of which will be advertised in The Monaro Post and on the blackboard near the front doors of the Hub.

Youth project co-ordinator PJ Ward, Emma Green and Nikki Rabbitte. The upstairs area is secluded and quiet with a private entrance and about to receive a face-lift, with new carpet throughout, new tables and chairs and the kitchen area having a makeover. This area can seat approximately 30 and will be available for hire at a very reasonable rate. Perfect for conferences, functions or meetings. There is also office space in the upstairs area and this is partially utilised by the youth workers but they are also hoping to make one of the offices into a ‘hot desk’, where for example people from out of the area can hire an office for a day, week or month. The Youth workers at the Hub are busy during the school terms as well, they often go to the local schools and run workshops and programs on health, self-awareness and many other topics teachers and parents deem useful. The staff are always encouraging young people to stay connected to family and friends, finish high school and they are there to help them if they need it. The Hub is a non–profit organisation and donations of useful products or skills are greatly appreciated.

Hub Girls pamper day Last Thursday saw a special girls day at the Hub in Cooma. A ‘Girls pamper day’ was held and 16 young ladies attended the free day. The day focused on how to keep a healthy relationship with eating and your body. In the morning the girls were treated to a session run by Sharni, from Country Skin Reflections. Sharni explained to the girls the importance of keeping your skin healthy, how to cleanse and apply makeup that is suitable for girls aged between 12 and 17 years old. Each girl also received a sample bag of goodies to take home. A healthy lunch was served and it was back to

the pampering business. The afternoon comprised of massage, toenail painting, making a ‘positive’ book-where you write positive things about yourself, friends and family in and concluded with making lip gloss from scratch.

The WOW Factor!

Credit Squeeze Bites Hard on New Housing fell by 10 per cent. “Today’s result also points to the recent substantial declines in housing affordability, which is not just a product of interest rate increases, but upward price pressures sourced from tight credit availability, and obstacles related to land supply, planning, infrastructure charges and taxation,� said Mr Wolfe. “Impediments to a sustained housing recovery must be removed if we are to have any chance of supplying sufficient new housing to meet demand,� said Mr Wolfe. “HIA estimates that the underlying demand for housing in 2010 is running at 190,000 dwellings per year. Yet, housing starts in 2010 are forecast to total only 165,940. This should be a signal to the Reserve Bank that steady rates are the appropriate course for the remainder of 2010.� In seasonally adjusted terms, the total number of owner occupier loans in May 2010 fell by 3.8 per cent in Western Australia and by 2.4 per cent in the ACT. Total owner occupier loans increased 2.3 per cent in New South Wales, 0.4 per cent in Victoria, 3.8 per cent in Queensland, 1.9 per cent in South Australia, 0.3 per cent in Tasmania, and 7.7 per cent in the Northern Territory.

A seventh consecutive slide in new home loans in May highlights the impact of rising interest rates and tighter finance restrictions on new housing activity, said the Housing Industry Association, the voice of Australia’s residential building industry. HIA Chief Executive - Association, Graham Wolfe, said that six interest rate rises over the nine months to May this year and tighter access to credit are weighing down any hope of a sustained new home building recovery. The number of loans for construction fell by 2.2 per cent in May while loans for the purchase of new dwellings grew by 4.7 per cent. Overall, loans for new housing dropped by 0.2 per cent to be 20 per cent lower than six months ago. “The decline in the number of first home buyers has unfolded as expected. However, interest rate speculation that was evident in the early part of the year has clearly downgraded the confidence of trade up buyers, and if there is any hope of a substantial return of trade up buyers to the market, interest rate increases need to be avoided for the remainder of 2010,� said Mr Wolfe. Over the 3 months to May 2010 total housing loans dropped by 26.2 per cent compared to the same period in 2009. First home buyer loans were down by 56 per cent, while trade up buyer loans

It’s tax time Changes for employers preparing 2010 wages summaries By Kathy Kelly, Director Boyce Chartered Accountants Now that we have passed another 30 June employers are busy preparing their employees’ PAYG payment summaries. What many employers may not be aware of is that the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) now requires further information to be disclosed on these summaries. Where an employer pays extra superannuation for an employee over and above the 9% super guarantee charge, then these extra amounts need to be reported on the payment summaries. Sounds simple – it isn’t. Most employers know how much super they have paid for their employees in total but it is not this amount that needs to be reported. Often these extra contributions are known as salary sacrifice contributions but sometimes employers may simply be obliged under certain agreements to pay super at a higher rate than 9%. The calculation can be tricky as the amount is not total super less 9% of

wages; it is necessary to work backwards from what the original salary would have been. So why does the ATO want this information? From 1 July 2009 Centrelink changed the definitions for many of their benefits to ensure extra super contributions were added on to reported incomes. Centrelink are making use of the ATO to collect the information they require. Unfortunately, there has been a flow on impact to many individuals who had small amounts of wage income but also wanted to claim self employed superannuation contributions. There is a limitation known as the 10% rule whereby if an individual receives 10% or more of their income from wages, they can not then claim self employed superannuation. For many self employed business people who also had a small salary this would be prohibitive so they may have elected to salary sacrifice more of their wage income into super to stay under the 10% rule. With the change of definition from 1 July 2009 the extra salary sacrificed into superannuation is now added on to wages and so many more taxpayers will now fail this rule and limit how much of a tax deduction they can claim personally. This combined with restrictive caps on contributions may lead to unexpected tax consequences for those who have not caught up with the rule changes. If a problem claiming tax deductions is added to an excess contributions tax assessment where caps are exceeded a person can be in for a nasty shock. Kathy Kelly is a tax specialist with Boyce Chartered Accountants. Julie Schofield and Elizabeth Timmins are licensed superannuation specialists.

Nimmity girl the new counsellor Leanne Jardine has recently taken up the post of Rural Financial Counsellor with the Rural Financial Counselling Service NSW - Southern region. Leanne is pleased to have returned home – she was “born and bred” in Nimmitabel and educated there and her husband John’s family also has a long association with Nimmitabel. They recently purchased the Jardine family property and have been fulltime on the Springfield Road property since March. Leanne said she has had a varied career which has included work at Parliament House in Canberra for Cabinet ministers, business development and general management roles with Media Monitors and recently, employment with Dow Jones on an ‘athome’ basis. Since the beginning of the year, Leanne had been considering what new direction her career would take and when the position of financial counsellor was advertised that question was answered. After two weeks in the job, Leanne was getting

the feel of her new role and preparing for plenty of travelling. Her region is roughly the same size and territory as the Eden-Monaro electorate, without Queanbeyan. While based in Cooma, she intends to spend one day per week at the Cobargo office and in the next couple of weeks, will be travelling around the region and beyond, contacting colleagues and comparing notes. With the Eurobodalla now EC declared and two natural diaster declarations on the south coast, Leanne expects to be very busy in the foreseeable future. But she is enjoying the role and meeting the local rural community as she carries out her job. She is also very much enjoying being on the farm where for the first time, she has a vegetable garden and space to enjoy. She and her husband are running Angus and sheep, so she has a first-hand knowledge of stock prices and farming on the Monaro.

New Rural Financial Counsellor, Leanne Jardine, in her Cooma office of the Rural Financial Counselling Service NSW – Southern Region.

Lodging LHPA returns This year the Livestock Health and Pest Authorities are making it even easier for landholders to complete their annual Land and Stock Returns, with the introduction of an online lodgement option for 2010 returns. With Land and Stock Return forms to begin hitting mailboxes from today, the South East LHPA is encouraging landholders in their authority to make the most of the option to lodge online at South East LHPA general manager, Thomas Ross says that the online lodgement only requires a few simple steps to complete. “The online form asks the same questions as the paper-based form and only takes a few minutes to complete – all you need is a computer and access to the internet,” Mr Ross said. “All LHPA ratepayers will receive a paper-based form which shows their Holding reference number and unique online password needed to login. Once logged in, you just fill in the form – it’s as simple as that.” Mr Ross says it is important all ratepayers complete their Land and Stock Returns, as they provide valuable information to the LHPAs. “The property information you give us in the

Land and Stock Return helps build a statewide biosecurity picture about agricultural usage and livestock numbers,” Mr Ross said. “Along with the stock identification and traceability systems we manage, this information is invaluable in the event of an emergency disease outbreak. “We’d also like to remind all our ratepayers that they are required to submit a Land and Stock Return, even if they do not have stock. Failure to lodge a Land and Stock Return will mean you are automatically charged an animal health rate and meat industry levy in next year’s rates.” The due date for Land and Stock Returns this year is 31 August. To lodge your 2010 Land and Stock Return online, go to More information about lodging online, including frequently asked questions, can be found at this address. For any queries or assistance in lodging your Land and Stock Return either online or by mail, please contact your local LHPA office in Bega, Bombala, Braidwood or Cooma.

26 Sport 2010 Rip Curl FreeRide Pro The 2010 Rip Curl FreeRide Pro and ThrowDown will host an array of elite athletes including former Olympic snowboarder Andy Finch (USA), one of the world’s most exciting young snowboarders Nate Johnstone (Mona Vale, NSW), and renowned freesnowboarding Olympic participant Mitch Brown (NZ), boosting the its prestige as one of the premier events on the Australian Calendar. In its fourth year, the Rip Curl FreeRide Pro and ThrowDown is a distinctive ski and snowboard event that runs during the prime winter dates of August 17-19 on some of the nation’s best natural terrain at Thredbo’s famous “Bluff” run. “The use of natural terrain as opposed to manmade courses gives a rider the freedom to show how creative they can be with a mountain. I think it takes more natural skill because it is not something you can really train at,” stated Finch. Finch placed 12th in the half-pipe at the 2006 Torino Olympics for the USA team and was inaugural champion of the 2007 FreeRide Pro. He returns for the first time since the event’s debut and is back to defend his title against new talent from Australia and abroad. “I’m really looking forward to this year’s event and getting a good line down the face. Any crazy tricks really depend on how soft the snow is, but I like to ride the mountain as it comes to me, like a video game. I’m all about the natural terrain!” said Finch. New talent in Finch’s sights is one of the industry’s

most exiting young snowboarders, Nate Johnstone. Johnstone qualified for the half-pipe at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics but was forced to withdraw after a devastating training accident resulting in a fractured left fibular. As the 2008 and 2009 Rip Curl FreeRide Pro Champion, he is eager to pull on a competition vest and hit the ‘Bluff’. Skiers Chris Booth (Cronulla, NSW) and Jordan Houghton (Jindabyne, NSW) have also signed up for the 2010 Rip Curl FreeRide Pro. In the women’s fields, Thredbo’s own Wiki Jones will be competing in the Open Snowboard and Mt Buller’s Pip Sparrow in the Open Ski. Run in conjunction with the FreeRide Pro is the ThrowDown Invitational. The ThrowDown is a specialty event held on the Wednesday from 6pm at the base of the mountain at Thredbo Village under lights. The exhibition of extreme ski and snowboard talent to the tunes of a DJ attracts a significant crowd creating a festival-like atmosphere. The Thredbo Terrain Park Crew custom design and build the ‘one-night only’ big air structure, and the annually changing features grant it a unique status. The event is held as a free running session where invited participants hit the jump as many times as they want in a two-hour period, to try and land their most exhilarating tricks for a ‘rider-judged’ result. The Rip Curl FreeRide Pro and ThrowDown is proudly presented by Power Balance and is a part of the Thredbo FreeRide Series.

Red Devils great games against Goulburn Cooma’s Red Devils rugby union side travelled to Goulburn on Saturday and in first grade, took on the defending premiers. Wins against the “Dirty Reds” at Goulburn have become a rare occurrence over the last few years, so the team were really motivated for a good showing. Cooma had the benefit of a slight breeze in the first half, and after weathering a strong start by Goulburn, started to get some possession and field position. Cooma’s backs were well served by Will Nicholls at fly-half who mixed kicks with well timed runs and the centre pairing of Craig Willock and Ryan Morgan were both running strongly. Cooma’s forward pack once again were heavily outweighed by the Goulburn pigs with the scrums being a real battle. Cooma’s forwards have made pick and drive their specialty this year and through this, piled the pressure on the Goulburn side, and came up with the first try of the game when prop Sam Caldwell crashed his way over. This try, scored by Sam, should be awarded to all the forwards for the work they put in. The try was converted by Ryan Morgan for Cooma to take a 7 nil lead. From the kick-off, Cooma went straight back on attack with a penalty resulting, that was converted by Ryan Morgan to give Cooma a 10-nil lead. However, any thoughts that Goulburn were going to lie down were soon put to rest as they hammered the Cooma line. The defensive effort by Cooma was fantastic as they repelled the Goulburn raids. The half time whistle sounded and the boys were well proud of the effort. Goulburn came out all fired up in the second half and with the aid of the breeze soon started mounting pressure on the Cooma line. Cooma defended stoutly, but eventually they cracked, for Goulburn to score. After the kick-off, Goulburn used the breeze to get back into Cooma’s territory to maintain the

pressure. Disciplined play by Goulburn caught Cooma short on the blind side for a simple try to get the score level at 10 all. Goulburn’s dominance of possession saw the Cooma side almost out on their feet, and with only minutes remaining, scored the final try of the game to seal a win for the Goulburn side and the Red Devils still chasing that elusive win at Goulburn. Cooma had an opportunity in the dying moments when they built numbers on the short side, but hopefully will learn from the experience. Although another defeat, Cooma knew they had given their all and were well satisfied with the effort. All players should be commended. 3 points went to Captain Jimmy Nichols with a fine game. 2 points and players player went to Will Nichols with 1 point being shared by centre come prop Damo Hopkins and Sam Zumba Bacigalupo. Cooma Reggies fade in final minutes against Goulburn Cooma travelled to Goulburn last Saturday to take on the Dirty Reds. It was a typical Reggies start, still turning up at kick off, still a little hungover from an excessive Friday night. So there was plenty of early pressure on the Cooma guys. Goulburn had most of the early possession. Even the Cooma lineout was challenged. They scored and converted 0-7. Cooma made a bad pass, there was a lucky bounce for Goulburn and a runaway try to them. They missed their conversion attempt. 0-12. Cooma started applying the pressure again, with great forward play. Ned Jeffries passed to to Eddy “Steggles” Ingram, on to Markie Frazer who nearly scored. Out to the backs, Benny “Abro” Abraham threw a dummy, scores under

the posts. Abro converts. 7-12 Goulburn had the ball deep into Cooma territory. Lineout, their throw, five metres out. Short throw, rolling maul. Goulburn scored, missed the conversion again. 7-17. From the kickoff, Goulburn tried to clear the ball out of their 22, but a bad pass saw a dropped ball, Nathan “Tug” Boate picked it up and scored near the posts. Abro slots it again. 14-17 and it’s half time. The second half was a real struggle. Up and down the field, one side to the other. Good hard rugby. Then the break, the Schouten’s combine, Nester to Benny onto Matty Lee, back to Nester, a grubber kick through, Goulburn regathers, Bret “Red” Jones pinches it back, Abro scores his second. Converts his own try again. Cooma reggies hit the lead, 2117. Goulburn regained the lead with their scrum scoring a push over try, they covert this one, 21-24. Paddy “Rocococco” Murdoch picked up a loose ball, outran the defence and dived in under the posts. Abro, does he ever miss, converts another one. Ten minutes to go, Cooma back in the lead, 28-24. If only this was the final score. Cooma kept trying but they were starting to run out of puff. Goulburn scored two unconverted tries and a penalty goal. Final score, Cooma Reggies 28, Goulburn Reggies 37. It was a great game of rugby. Next week’s game is at Griffith against East, then we get a run of home games. Best on the field, 3 points to Ned Jeffries, 2 points to Tug Boate, 1 point each to Matty Evans and the points machine, Benny Abraham. Players player went to Benny Abro. Goulburn Fermented Reds are having their Gala day Sunday August 22. Any “old boys” interested can give Craig Mitchell a ring for the particulars.

Tigers break winning streak

Div five Tigers 1-1 draw Division five Tigers, sitting in fifth place, headed to Canberra to take on third placed Canberra Olympic. Cooma went all out attack from the start, but were under the pump and took 15 minutes to settle. Once settled, however, Cooma started to take charge through the central midfield trio of Andrew Whiting, Brendan Wall and Paul Lawson. Before long Cameron Wall penetrated the back line and played a switch to Lockie King, whose persistence paid off creating an easy tap in for the returning Ben Lollback. Within minutes of going one goal to the good, a lapse in concentration caused Cooma to concede against the run of play. Cooma dominated the second half and pushed forward and were causing problems for Olympic’s defence through Andrew Bobinskas and Cameron Wall. With 10 minutes to go Olympic turned on the

heat and Cooma were on the back foot and had to find something else in the tank to get them through. With memories of the last time these two teams met lingering (a 4-1 loss) Cooma were determined to prove to themselves that they could get a better result. With seconds to go Ben Baker conceded a “questionable” handball in the box. With the ever reliable Mark Chenery in goals we were very confident he could maintain his 100 percent record against spot kicks. The Olympic striker smashed the ball onto the bar and Cooma lived to fight another day; the game ending 1-1. Coach Walker said “It was the most pleasing result so far this season, even though we didn’t get the three points it didn’t matter; we needed a result out of that game and we got it. We are aiming to finish in the top 4 and we are on track for that.” Best on field: Ben Lollback, Paul Lawson and Ben Baker

Lady Tigers 4-0 win Second division Lady Tigers hosted Belwest Foxes on Sunday at Nijong oval. The Lady Tigers were determined to win at home and turn over the 2-1 loss in the first round game. Both teams tried to dominate at the start; however Belwest looked bit more dangerous than the Cooma side. Rebecca Pascall, positioned in full back, was exceptionally outstanding in charge of the Cooma defence and they did not give any opportunities to their opponent. Georgia Peters, Deanne Baines, Lara McAuley and Courtney Freeman all had good games and they showed that they would make it hard for anyone to pass and score against Cooma. The Lady Tigers started to build their game from strong defence and midfield where defensive midfielder Rebecca Thompson and forward midfielder Annie Crofts were in charge. The wingers, Alicia Connell and Bethany McMahon, were creating plenty of chances for strikers Libby Goggin and Letitia Newman. Cooma supremacy resulted in the first goal in the 30th minute from the right wing. Bethany McMahon crossed the ball into the 18 yard box and Libby Goggin had the poise to control and strike the ball into the corner, making it impossible to save for the Belwest goalkeeper. Cooma

continued their domination the rest of first half but the score remained 1-0 for home side. The second half saw Cooma come on fire. Bethany was next to score when she took on several defenders and broke through with a solid strike, guided to the back of the net by some wind assistance. A perfectly placed pass through the Belwest defence led to Libby Goggin taking on the Belwest keeper one on one. Libby gently placed the ball low and to the left of the keeper, making the scoreboard 3-0. Kailey Tonini was Cooma’s keeper for the weekend where her skills were tested on numerous occasions by Belwest; her performance was outstanding for the full 80 minutes. A penalty was then awarded to Cooma as right wing Bethany was tripped within the 18 yard box. Confidently, Annie Crofts stepped up to the mark, taking it in her stride to slot the ball just left of the keeper. Lady ‘Tiger’ of the game went to Rebecca Pascall who showed strong character, spirit, and leadership as full back and helped her team to win 4-0 over their strong opponent. The Lady Tigers had their last lost in May and have now made it six wins in a row.

Some of the Tigers’ action from last Sunday.


Cooma took on Belconnen Utd in the Gatorade Premier League on Sunday, at a very chilly Nijong Oval. The home side showed good football and great passing to the point of being the better side, up until the 30th minute when Belconnen, through the right wing, crossed in the ball to #10 Macor. He did well to dummy the ball which passed square under him to the player on his right, and this fooled the markers and allowed #8 Reinhart the free open space to score with a precise strike into the net. Following the unexpected goal, Cooma became loose in their composure, and a sudden patch of poor passing allowed Belconnen United to dictate the terms of the game. Despite playing erratically, several opportunities on goal were created by Cooma who tried to overcome the dissolution and frustration that they felt, but this was without positive result. The first half ended Cooma 1 Belconnen United 0. The second half commenced with Cooma taking control of the game and dominating while in possession. This increase was rewarded in the 49th minute after a cross from Marcial went less than an inch over the heads of Josifovski and Wilk but landed at the feet of Gecic. He equalised with a left-footed shot, and suddenly the Tigers were

inspired to lift their game even more against the second ranked team in the competition. However, Belconnen found another way wrestle the lead from Cooma. Wells managed to muscle up through Flores and Schofield, and find himself one-on-one with Bangweni. There was no mistake from the Blue Devil’s player, who turned the score into 2-1. Belconnen after this regained confidence and could have increased the score. Neither Munoz nor Josifovski were ready to accept defeat at that moment and played one-twos all the way to the Belconnen goal. The #6 midfielder Josifovski, who scored his now fifth goal, evened up the score on the 72nd minute. On the 87th minute a corner from the left hand side of the Cooma goals found a low-statured Belconnen #8 Reinhart flying over the Cooma defence to score from a header. This was the last official goal of the game and it ended 3-2. This was not the end, though of every goal. Only minutes later the substitute #4 Serdan, scored a brilliant goal which was interpreted as being offside by the line official. This result ends Cooma’s unbeaten record at home for the last two and a half years, and the eight game no-loss record that we had accumulated.

Div four 1-0 loss It was a good day for football on Saturday when the division four Tigers took on Tuggeranong at Nijong Oval. A strong line up and the return of midfield backbone Nick Stubbs motivated the team for their first win. An injury to goalkeeper Michael Warren meant that Man of the Match Michael Corcoran filled in the vital position, despite a couple cracked ribs. This gave a chance for Ben Woodhouse to step into the centre of defence alongside Dave D’Amico. The first half saw the Tigers struggle to settle in a pass-andmove mode, which meant tireless running and chasing for the ball in the midfield. Despite the lack of composure, the Tigers were able to hold the score to a draw, with Michael Corcoran deflecting a thunderous free kick strike which surely would have seen the back of the net. A good rant from the coach in the change rooms gave the Tigers something to put in practice in the second half. Some great passages of play in the midfield created space for the wingers to make their

runs down the line. Cooma looked treacherous at times; with Gerard Rampal receiving some set piece passes on the top of the box, only to shoot wide. The opposition never looked too dangerous, but a lapse in the midfield gave them some space and time they needed to take a shot. Unfortunately this was placed brilliantly in the top right corner, which, despite Corcoran’s best efforts, found the back of the net. Cooma kept their heads up, and with 20 minutes to go they pushed and probed continuously only to be repelled by the resolute Tuggeranong defence. In the end a lack of ‘cutting-edge’ up front proved the Tigers’ downfall and they suffered another heartbreaking 1-0 loss. Coach Damian Knight praised the continued improvement in play by the team; “Our focus now is on improving our play week by week. Obviously the season is well and truly over for us in terms of the finals, but we have some personal goals that we wish to achieve and that will motivate us for the remainder of the competition.”

Despite going down in a tough fought match, the Cooma Cats can hold their heads up high for the way they stuck to their task in a strong display of AFL football at Snowy Oval on Saturday. The Cats went down to the Harman Hogs 1010-70 to 18-13-121. A poor third quarter, when the Hogs kicked six straight with the aid of a strong breeze, let the Cats down in a fast-paced game. The Cooma boys matched their more skilled opposition for each of the other three quarters in what was a high scoring and highly entertaining match in front of a great local – and vocal – crowd. The Cats started the game well with great intensity at the ball in the opening quarter which was soon rewarded through a goal by big man Shaun Allen. The Cats’ pressure in the first quarter was exemplified by a great, goal saving tackle by Corey Tucker who turned a 50 metre penalty and certain goal to the Hogs on its head. It was a wonderful example of determination and perseverance. However, with the use of the wind, the Hogs hit back with a three goal burst late in the quarter to lead by 17 points at the first break. The second quarter got off to a bad start for the Cats when they gave away a 50 metre free kick in the opening minute which resulted in an easy game for the Hogs who threatened to break the game wide open then and there. But the Cats, led in defence by stalwart Jimmy Russell, bounced back. Evergreen midfielder Rob Brown goaled with a huge kick from outside the forward 50 metres, then American import Johnny Curry – playing his first game of AFL – pounced on a loose ball in the forward pocket and kicked a memorable goal which will be talked about back in a local high school in Augusta, Georgia for some time to come. Then full forward Fabio Pielli chimed in with a great team play by successfully shepherding a Lee Mason goal through against some tough play by the Hog’s fullback. It was a great quarter by the Cats and they went into the half-time break only 11 points down against a much more skilled and drilled opposition. But with the wind behind them, the Hogs broke the game apart with a quality six-goal haul in the third quarter. The Hog’s running game created loose men all over the field and their hand passing was a pleasure to watch. It was a great display of

team football. But the Cats continued to battle hard and were rewarded on the siren when Curry, in a great second effort, managed to get a good hand pass out to Lee Mason in the forward pocket who goaled to give the Cooma boys a lift going into the final quarter. The last quarter proved to be an AFL shootout with both sides going goal for goal. The Cats kicked four, but the Hogs answered with another five to take the four points at the final siren. Cooma Cats’ Club President was happy with the efforts by a Cooma side which was back from a bye the previous week. :The boys gave a really good account of themselves against a good side,” Dave said. “Our third quarter was disappointing and cost us a game we could have won, but there were many positives for us to take away from the other three quarters where we were very competitive. “One of the key positives was our second efforts and positive spirit throughout the game. That’s something we can build upon over the coming weeks with a view to laying a strong foundation for next year,” he said. The Cats’ game against the Hogs was part of an AFL double header at Snowy Oval on Saturday, with their game being followed by the AFL Canberra Division 3 game between the Harman Hogs and the Woden Blues. “It was a great day of top AFL action with the two senior games and we were really pleased to see such a good turn-out of people to enjoy the action. A special guest was our new Number One Ticket Holder, Cooma-Monaro Shire Council General Manager John Vucic, who reinforced his support for the club and its mission to bring AFL to the community,” Dave said. The double-header is part of the Cats’ efforts to promote AFL on the Monaro and across the Snowy Mountains and is rapidly becoming a major showpiece event on the Monaro sporting calendar each year. The awards for the day were: Cooma’s Original Hot Bake Award – Lee Mason; Capital Dial-aPizza Award – Johnny Curry; Club Six pack Award – Brad Schmabl; and the Players’ Player Award – David Clyde. The Cooma Cats train on Tuesday and Friday evenings (the juniors on Tuesday and Thursday evenings) and everyone is welcome to come down and get involved in the club.

108 Commissioner St, Cooma


Wednesday July 21, 2010

Stallions in strong spot The Cooma Club is firing along pretty well at the important end of the season and came within a nick of winning all three grades against Eden Tigers at Eden on Sunday. The under 18’s convincing winners 42-28, the seconds also winning 32-26 while the firsts can count themselves very unlucky, coming home with a 22 all draw. First Grade: Cooma and Eden clashes are always a great sight and this one was certainly no exception. The Cooma boys races away to a commanding 18 points to nil lead, after playing good strong rugby league. Eden hit back to post their first points just before half time, Cooma going into the sheds 18-10. Cooma were on the back of a few rough calls from the official and the second half was certainly no different with supporters looking dumb founded and bewildered at quite a number of them. Anyhow the team stayed focused worked hard and clawed their way back into the game after Eden had hit the lead 22-18. Cooma forwards Clear, Bruce, Russell and Dunn combined well and made strong hitups while lighter forwards Clarke, Boller and Barton scrambled well in defence. Captain coach Jeff Donald was inspirational taking on the big Eden pack and encouraging the boys to keep at it. Cooma winger Moon scored out wide, the conversion missed and the scores were locked at 22 all. Both sides pushed the ball from one end to the other and field goal attempts by Clay Stewart (2) and the Eden half failed to find the posts. A tough bruising encounter thoroughly enjoyed by a good crowd. Cooma were best served by prop Clay Clear, Hooker Russell and coach Donald while Nick Moon was very good at wing. Ingram, Stokes and Salvestro best in the backs. Second Grade: Cooma seconds ground out a narrow but good

comeback win over a determined Eden side winning 32-26. Lining up with an under strength side due to other commitments by a few key players, Cooma had to dig deep and after trailing most of the match came home a little stronger to take the game. An important win to the seconds who now have a reasonably easy run over the next few weeks. A wholehearted effort by all the players with Korrie Elton very strong. Ben Rolfe again was hard to put down in the centres while Deitrich, Boller and captain coach Palmer were everywhere in attack and defence. Unfortunately Adam Jakins cracked his wrist so we hope you’re not out too long Adam. Big Mel Issa took the line on at every opportunity, as did Andrew Jakins and Chris Palmer. Under 18’s: Cooma under 18’s win showed the competitors and their supporters just what they are capable of on Sunday when they combined brilliantly to run out to a commanding 31-6 lead before half time. Stand in hooker Jake Schofield made a big difference sending up good, crisp passes to his forwards and backs. Eden as always at home made a determined comeback in the second half but Cooma stuck to their plan and then posted two more tries to seal the win. Forwards Stones, Bodycott-Pielli, Martin and Scott excelled while livewire centres Zeb Learoyd and Jesse Jackson was excellent. Cooma’s fullback Mitchell Lynch so safe and elusive gives his side oodles of confidence at the back. This side can now go all the way into the finals but need to give themselves a chance by training twice a week so as to give coach Steve Dunn every opportunity to gel the good side together and improve even more. This Sunday, at last football is back in Cooma when we take on Merimbula-Pambula as well as host the South Sydney under 16 side. See you all there.

In one game of the handicap pairs Peter Harris and Ray Downey were both on their game and proved too strong for Dennis Sellars and Colin Roberson. Despite using his brand new bowls Roberson was unable to counter the play of his opponents and went down 35 – 15.

Sajina wins bowls singles Jack Sajina has won the Cooma Bowling Club’s minor singles championship with a very impressive performance in the final played on Saturday. His win was the highlight of a busy weekend of bowling action that saw play in four different championships and plenty of players involved in social matches. Sajina proved too good on the day for Peter Marsicano in the final of the minor singles. Marsicano now has the unwanted record of being the runner up in both the major and minor singles in the one year! Unfortunately for him he could not reproduce the magnificent form he has shown all year. Added to this, Sajina played very well. Sajina held the upper hand throughout the game but several times Marsicano rallied to keep the scores very close. After 15 ends the scores were locked at 15 all. Sajina won the next four ends to move out to 22 – 15 only to see Marsicano again narrow the margin to 22 – 19. Sajina held his nerve and was able to close the game out 31 – 22 to give him the title.

Xin and Col Cottam continued their run of excellent form to take out the semi final of the minor pairs and move into the final of this event. On Saturday they held off a determined fight back from George Davidson and Don Jarvis to win their clash 21 – 14. The Cottams had a great start to the game and quickly set up a 11 – 1 lead. By the 14th end Davidson and Jarvis had managed to make a real game of it when they trailed by just 14 – 11. Xin and Col steadied and had the better of the last seven ends to take the match. They will now play Mario Frezza and Giulio D’Amico in the final. Play in the mixed pairs commenced on the weekend with two games played. In a classic match Olga Jebbink and Stumpy Wallis picked up three shots on the last end to edge out Maureen D’Amico and John Schoon. Jebbink and Wallis had the better of the first half of the game. After 13 ends they had a 15 to 8 advantage. D’Amico and Schoon then made a move. Over the

next four ends they picked up 11 shots to move to a 19 -15 lead. They held onto the lead and went into the last end with a two shot margin. The last end was filled with drama. Wallis held the shot only to see Schoon trail the jack to give his team a 3 shot advantage. Jebbink and Wallis then played three great bowls to give them the three shots they needed to take the game 22 – 21. Keith Goodwin and Mary Phillips had a very tight battle with Cheryl and Mick Meillon. The first 13 ends were very tight with the sides only managing to score 1 or 2 shots per end. At this stage Mick and Cheryl held a slender 10 – 8 lead. The 14th end proved crucial with Phillips and Goodwin breaking the shackles to pick up four shots to grab the lead by 12 – 10.
