Shaun Rennie with Jindy Idol winner Brady Jones from Bombala, Tim Draxl and Loren Hunter.

Performing artists from across the region came together at the Jindabyne Memorial Hall on Saturday night to compete in the sixth annual Jindy Idol. Kahli Henley opened the night with a beautiful rendition of Elton John’s Your Song. Dozens of terrific performances followed. The audience held its breath as Tulli Oayda sang Butterfly Fly Away; and more than a few tears were shed as six-year-old Isabella Ward delivered A Thousand Years. In the second act, Kesha Oayda delivered a clever, soulful, kid-friendly version of Johnny

Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues; and fencing contractor Michael Sier (Cooma) earned a standing ovation and the People’s Choice award with a stirring version of This Is the Moment from Jeckyll and Hyde. Judges Loren Hunter (Rent, Wicked), Shaun Rennie (Rent, Wicked), and Jindabyne’s own Tim Draxl provided every performer with constructive criticism to improve their performances. Rennie emphasized the importance of diction, while Hunter reminded artists to fully engage with their material. All of the judges heaped praise on the performers,

Residents urged to be bush fire ready this season

The Monaro Rural Fire Service (RFS) is calling on residents to ensure their homes and properties are prepared for the upcoming bush fire season. With the official start to the bush fire danger period on Saturday, October 1, Monaro residents are being encouraged to act now and clear their properties of materials that can fuel fires. NSW RFS District Officer, Fred Nichols, said it’s important locals are proactive heading into the danger period. “The major thing people can do is get rid of the fuel around their properties, such as grass, scrub, bushes and rubbish,” Mr Nichols said. Discussing a plan with the family, especially those with kids, is really important. It’s a real mental thing, people think they’re ready when they’re not. The NSW RFS recommends residents follow four simple steps to prepare the family, the home and the individual: Discuss, prepare, know the bush fire alert levels and keep all contacts at hand. Mr Nichols said preparation is vital to ensuring people and properties are ready in the event a bush fire threatens.

“We really push the mental side. We suggest in the event a house or property is in danger that people leave early. They need to get themselves established mentally about what decision they will take.” “Every resident should have a Bush Fire Survival Plan so they know what to do on days of increased fire danger and can immediately put their plan into action if their home is threatened by fire.” Despite it being the wettest Monaro winter in 18-years, Mr Nichols is calling on locals to avoid complacency as the bush fire danger period approaches. He said it only takes a couple of hot windy weeks to dry out the bush, grasslands and the lovegrass areas of the Monaro. “It was definitely good conditions but lovegrass will burn at anytime. Lovegrass country will burn one day after rain,” he said. “A big issue for the RFS is trucks can’t be taken into lovegrass country as they get bogged.” With the start of the bush

NSW RFS District Officer, Fred Nichols, is calling on Monaro residents to prepare their Bush Fire Survival Plan with the start of the bush fire danger period this Saturday. fire season, residents are being reminded fire permits are required during the statutory danger period. “From now until the end of the Bush Fire Danger Period, people wishing to light a fire in the open will require a permit, which are free and can be obtained from your local fire brigade.“ “The reason for a permit

is to ensure that a fire is conducted under safe and controlled conditions.” A recent spate of landholders failing to notify the RFS and their neighbours when conducting burn offs has prompted a reminder from Mr Nichols. “Even with a permit being issued to you by your local

brigade you are still required to provide 24hrs notice to the Rural Fire Service Control Centre (during business hours) and your neighbors prior to burning.” “When conditions are particularly bad, such as on days of Severe, Extreme or Catastrophic Fire Danger, the NSW RFS may declare a Total Fire Ban, prohibiting

the lighting of any fire in the open, even if you have a fire permit,” Mr Nichols said. Locals can also call the Cooma Fire Control Centre on 6455 0455 or the Bushfire Information Line on 1800 NSW RFS (1800 679 737).

Snowy Mountains set for tourism influx Cooma police kept busy Police moved on an intoxicated male after he was found asleep in the rear car park of 194 Sharp Street, Cooma, at 11.10pm on September 21. The man, aged in his 40s, was not the resident of the property.

Canberra Airport’s transition into an international flight destination is expected to boost regional tourism numbers, bringing about a new era for local business operators. Following the first international flight to touch down in the nation’s capital in more than a decade, Snowy Mountains Tourism Manager Donna Smith says the opening up of the international tourism market is one of the most significant moments for our region in years. “It’s very exciting for the region, it’s a new era. This will be a game changer,” Ms Smith said. “With the current schedule it delivers 1000 tourists to our doorstep each week. The majority of these are high income earners so this could invest millions into our visitor economy.” The first Singapore Airlines flight touched down in Canberra last week, commencing its Singapore-CanberraWellington route. Ms Smith envisages the region’s tourism operators will benefit from the increased number of Asian tourists. “Research is showing us that Singaporeans love natured based holidays. They’re after a nature and adventure holiday they can’t get anywhere else,” Ms Smith said. “We can give them all this only one hour from their arrival point. This matches in well in what we have to offer.” Local tourism operators are already taking steps to ensure their businesses can tap into this new market. Ms Smith highlighted the attendance of local operators at a recent

Police were called at 10pm on Wednesday September 21 to a property in Commissioner Street, Cooma, where some wheelie bins were knocked over. The resident of 147 Commissioner Street heard some banging outside, and upon investigation saw that his bins had been knocked over and rubbish was strewn across the road. It is believed that this was a result of an argument the resident had with a person, which occurred the previous night. Number plates have been stolen from a silver Toyota Landcruiser that was parked at St Patrick’s Church in Murray Street, Cooma. The vehicle was parked at the location from September 16 to September 20. Police are asking for those with any further information to come forward. There have been reports in recent weeks of squatters breaking into

We are working closely with Destination NSW, Tourism Snowy Mountains, and Tourism Australia, who run external campaigns into international markets.” Ms Smith has called on local business owners to take advantage of this ‘exciting’ era. “We recommend to tourism operators that they’re online and have their businesses set up on review based websites. Research tells us that 86 percent of Singaporeans make travel decisions bases on travel review sites. “ Receiving a water cannon salute, the flight had 240 passengers aboard for the historic moment.

Airport Managing Director, Stephen Byron, said has enormous potential for the capital region. “Overseas travellers, especially those from Asia, have expressed surprise Australia is one of the very few countries in the world which does not have direct flights into the capital city,” Mr

Byron said. “International flights into Canberra have enormous potential for producers and manufacturers to our north, west and south. It means, for example, that oysters harvested in the morning on the NSW South Coast can be on a lunch table in Singapore the next day.”

On September 20, police responded to reports of a drugaffected man yelling in Centennial Park, Cooma. Police observed the man walk to a parked vehicle on Massie Street. A search of his person and the vehicle resulted in the discovery of 4.42g of cannabis along with syringes and other drug paraphernalia. A 25-year-old male, 35-year-old female and a 20-year-old male from Sydney were arrested as a result and they will appear in court in October. A driver tested positive to cannabis and methamphetamines at the intersection of Murray Street and Vale Street, Cooma on September 20. The 54 year old male from Khancoban was arrested and taken to Cooma police station for further testing, which again read positive. Pending final results from Sydney, the man was prohibited from driving for the following 24 hours and will appear in court should the result come back as positive.

Community called upon to wear blue for a cause

Blue shirt, blue pants, blue tie, blue dress – blue undies if you have them. Grab anything blue and head over to Mitre 10 Cooma on Wednesday October 5. The team is hosting a fundraising event for charity organisation beyondblue. The beyondblue Bash aims to raise awareness and funds to support the work of beyondblue in improving the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. Right now, over one million Australian adults have depression and two million are experiencing anxiety. On average, seven people take their lives every day in Australia. These figures are particularly prevalent in the construction industry, with apprentices often suffering depression and anxiety, which is why manager of Mitre 10 Cooma Chris Fitzgerald wanted to get involved.

Chris is inviting the whole community along for the barbeque lunch to get behind the cause. Everyone is encouraged to wear blue for the day to help raise awareness. Starting at 12pm and finishing at 2pm out the front of the shop in Vale Street, Cooma, a community photo will be taken at 1pm. “We want as many people as possible to come along and join in for the photo to show that we, as a community, support those who have experienced the effects of depression or anxiety.” Chris is also looking to the business community to donate items, vouchers or services that could form part of a raffle or possible auction for the event. To get in touch with Chris, call the shop on 6452 1755 or email him at

Better aim needed to hit bullseye in mental health Are people living in rural and remote Australia more likely to be hospitalised for mental health conditions than their city counterparts? The report, Healthy Communities: Hospitalisations for mental health conditions and intentional self-harm in 2013-2014, recently released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare gives some insight into this issue. The report looks at hospitalisations for

five mental health conditions: schizophrenia and delusional disorders, anxiety and stress disorders, depressive episodes, bipolar and mood disorders and dementia as well as drug and alcohol use and intentional self-harm. Overall, overnight hospitalisation rates were 13 per cent higher in rural and remote areas (971 hospitalisations per 100 000 population) as compared to metropolitan areas (857 per 100 000 population).

What’s on at the

While data indicates significant difference in the rates of hospitalisation in rural and remote Australia compared with major centres, it also reveals significant variation within regions the rates of hospitalisation in some towns can be almost 8 times higher than for other towns of the same remoteness. The variation in rates could be due to a number of factors including differences in the prevalence in mental illness, variable access to mental health services and programs or even differences

in hospital admissions processes in rural and remote hospitals. The data will be invaluable to funders and health services in identifying and targeting areas of poor health to ensure that efforts and resources are targeted to the areas of greatest need. The National Rural Health Alliance looks forward to working with the Rural Health Commissioner, when they are appointed, to address such poor health outcomes within rural and remote Australian communities.

Eucumbene bus run bids farewell to Pete Driving a school bus for 300 plus kilometres each day, five days a week, takes a great level of commitment and Peter Purcell has shown this level of dedication for the last 17 years. Each weekday, Pete leaves Cooma before the sun rises to collect school students on the Eucumbene bus run - the longest bus run in NSW, which travels from Eucumbene Cove to Cooma. In

the afternoon he does it all again, returning to Cooma after the sun sets. It is this level of dedication that has seen Pete clock up an impressive 60 000 kilometres each year and over 1 million kilometres in his 17 years of driving. Add in the challenges of wildlife, stray cattle, deer, snow and ice and you can see what a special job Pete has been doing for so long.

To the communities on the Eucumbene, Rocky Plain, Middlingbank and Slacks Creek Roads, Pete has become more than a bus driver. He has become a trusted friend and a guardian of their children, who goes out of his way to return lunch boxes and school hats left on the bus to the owner’s letterbox ready for the next day. On Friday, September 23

Pete drove the Eucumbene bus for the final time. The families he has cheerfully greeted every morning will sorely miss him and in recognition of his efforts and to extend their thanks, families past and present of the Eucumbene Bus run gathered at the Rocky Plain School house to farewell Pete on his second last day in the job. For Pete, who has driven over 150 children, including second

generations, it was a fitting send off. Parents thanked Pete for ensuring the safety of their children every day, and for going above and beyond in helping and supervising their children and making sure they were always on the bus in the afternoon before leaving town. These communities have been privileged to have Pete looking after their children and they wish him all the best for his future endeavours.

More internet Australians are expected to spend an extra 22 days more on the internet this year than they did in 2014, with regional people accounting for the biggest increase in usage, according to a new study launched today. One of the most detailed and extensive studies of online behaviour ever conducted in this country, the nbn Broadband Index, commissioned by nbn, confirms that Australians of all ages and in every state and territory are spending

more time online. Those connected to the nbnTM network are the greatest home internet users, with the biggest increase occurring in regional areas, where people are spending 1.7 hours more per week day on their home internet than they did two years ago. Move away from the metro areas and the change is even greater, with internet use jumping from 3.9 hours to 5.6 hours per day during the week and 4.2 to 5.4 hours on weekends when connected to the nbn™ network.

Local girls on Canberra catwalk Two Cooma girls have secured a spot on the upcoming FASHFEST in Canberra. Georgia Crisp and Abby Macnab were chosen to be part of the biggest fashion event for the city. Both have had experience in modelling, taking part in the Community Chest event, Fashionation, earlier this year. The girls modelled clothes by local designer Charly Thorn at the local fundraising event. Charly herself has been picked to enter 12 designs of her own and at just 17, she is the youngest designer to have ever been included in FASHFEST.

So far the girls have had a few rehearsals and have been taking part in some mind strengthening activities together with the other models. About 500 aspiring models applied for the show, but only 150 were chosen. Abby and Georgia are both modelling for designer Rebel Muse, with Georgia also modelling for CUE and Karen Lee. “I feel really excited to be involved in FASHFEST alongside Abby,� said Georgia, “I think it will be an eye opener, it is such a great opportunity and I am so thankful for being chosen.� Both girls really enjoy modeling, but at only 16 years old, they aren’t sure if it is

what they want to pursue as a career. “I had a really great time at Fashionation wearing Charly’s beautiful designs, but I’m not really sure if modeling is what I want to do,� said Abby. “It would be awesome to take up modelling as a career, to be involved, meet new people, go different places and having fun,� said Georgia, “I will just have to see where life takes me.� The girls will hit the runway on Thursday September 29. Pictured below, Georgia Crisp, left and Abby Macnab.

Administrator’s Column The Snowy Monaro received a major boost Friday with John Barilaro visiting the area and giving funds for important infrastructure - I had the pleasure of accompanying John on the end of his tour. Firstly John visited Bredbo and allocated $10,000 to the replacement of the showground fence which was in dire need of repair. I then joined John to visit the Snowy River Holiday Park at Dalgety to deliver $30,000 to go towards developing the camp kitchen. Our next stop was at the Jindabyne Airport where $9,000 was given for the installation of a septic tank. All of these projects are going to be great assets for the community so I look forward to seeing them maximising their full potential. I was invited to attend the graduation ceremony for the Bombala RFS Cadets school program run by Rural Fire Service. Assistant Commissioner Rebel Talbert, the Hon Bronnie Taylor MLC and Andy Winfield were also in attendance as guests of honour. The Cadets got more out of this than just a certificate; they learnt how to work in a team work environment, understand the benefits of volunteering and gain valuable life skills. We were also given a demonstration about how to extinguish a burning gas bottle which kept the crowd excited. This is an example of how these students learnt practical firefighting skills that will that could potentially protect their local community. The Young Driver Training program delivered by Snowy Hydro Limited started up in Bombala this year. Students from Bombala High School were given the opportunity to drive a specially modified car and learnt to feel what it’s like to lose control of your car in a controlled situation. Unfortunately, too many of our youth end up in car accidents, so Council supported this program 100% by coordinating the road closures and organising the event with Snowy Hydro. This program being delivered in Bombala was actually a positive outcome of the merger as Cooma-Monaro Shire Council had strong connections with Snowy Hydro and we have been able to spread the goodwill of the relationship across the region.

More funding to improve our public reserves The NSW Government will invest over $200000 to preserve the Monaro’s important public reserves and community hubs, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro announced last Friday. The 2016/17 funding allocation from the Public Reserves Management Fund Program is part of an $18 million annual program of grants and loans from the NSW Government to support the development, maintenance and protection of the public reserves. “Public reserves in our region such as sportsgrounds, showgrounds, community halls, walking tracks and local parks are valued places which are used by our local community every day,’ Mr Barliaro said. “This funding is not only vital to the success of our regional communities, but also supports the role our professional and volunteer managers play in the ongoing management of the reserves. “This funding will allow our local managers to now implement the improvements required to ensure these important places can continue to be enjoyed

by our local community now and into the future.” Highlights of the 2016/17 Public Reserves Management Fund Program for the Monaro are: $81,335 for Snowy Monaro Regional Council for weeds funding across the electorate. $54,395 for Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council for weeds funding across the electorate. $30,000 for Snowy Monaro Regional Council to build an energy efficient camp kitchen at the Snowy River Holiday Park in Dalgety. $10,374 for Snowy Monaro Regional Council to replace the arena fence at the Bredbo Showground. $10,000 for Nerriga Craft and Museum Centre to install new lighting. $9,680 for Jindabyne Pony Club to install a new septic tank at the club grounds. “Over the last five years, more than $95 million has been allocated by the NSW Government under this annual funding program to provide financial support for the development, maintenance and protection of public reserves,” Mr Barilaro said.

Meetings to discuss Delegate and Bombala streetscapes Dates have been announced for public meetings to discuss the draft Commercial Centre Designs that have been drawn up for Bombala and Delegate, and if the mixed response to the plans is anything to go by, there should be good numbers in attendance. The public is urged to attend the meetings in Delegate on October 6 from 6.30pm in the School of Arts, or in Bombala on October 13 from 6.30pm at the Community Centre in the library building. The drafts, also being referred to as Streetscape Plans, are the work of Scape Design, who were engaged by the former Bombala Council to explore the redevelopment of the Bombala and Delegate commercial centres. These arrangements were made prior to the merger of the Council, and the drafts themselves are a very early starting point on which the community is urged to build to achieve what it considers most needed in a potential redevelopment. The plans include some significant features, including a town plaza, new gym, widened footpaths and even a kayak clubhouse, and there has been a mixed response to the public exhibition so far. On Facebook concerns were aired that parallel parking may be introduced in Bombala and that other more urgent needs of the district may be overlooked if a redevelopment was to

take place. In response to these concerns, it was pointed out on social media that the plans are very much in the draft stages, and those who have ideas concerning the commercial centres should utilise the public meetings or send their views to the Snowy Monaro Regional Council. Hard copies of the draft designs can be viewed at the Bombala Branch council office and on display in the window of the former Lou Lou’s shopfront at 105 Maybe Street. They can also be viewed online through the Snowy Monaro Regional Council website. The drafts for Bombala include the before mentioned plaza, gym and kayak facilities, as well as a new pedestrian footbridge and walking routes, and upgraded parking, footpaths, playgrounds and barbecue areas. In Delegate the plans allow for well lit pedestrian laneways, sections of widened footpaths, an outdoor dining area and potential new parks, playgrounds, community garden and parking. The drafts are by no means finalised plans, and the community is strongly urged to communicate what it wants from

any redevelopment of the commercial centres while the opportunity exists. Members of the public are invited to comment on these plans, which are now on public exhibition for a period of 28 days, concluding on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. All comments should be made in writing and addressed to the General Manager, quoting the document reference. Comments can be mailed to General Manager, Snowy Monaro Regional Council, PO Box 714, Cooma, NSW 2630 or by email to The public meetings in Delegate on October 6 and Bombala on October 13 will present another important opportunity to discuss the plans, with the success of the process relying on community consultation.

Bombala High’s Year 12 class farewelled It was a day of mixed emotions as the Bombala High School bid a fond farewell to the Year 12s of 2016 with a Final Assembly and Roll Call last week. Principal, Andy Winfield shared the following words with the group as they said goodbye to their regular school days and look ahead to their HSC exams. “After the next six or seven weeks, when you have completed your Higher School Certificate exams, the next part of your life will begin,” Mr Winfield said. “Many of you will move away from Bombala to begin further study at University or TAFE, others will begin employment in the ‘real world’. All of these options can be both exciting and challenging. “Contrary to current culture, try to remember that the easiest path is not always the best path. Sometimes, with hindsight, we place the greatest value in the things that we have had to work the hardest for to attain.”




Pictured: Finishing their years of school with a Final Assembly and Roll Call last week were the Bombala High School Year 12s of 2016; (front) Janine Jamieson, Brooke Young, Makayla Standen, Courtney Crotty, Tanika Hampshire, Annie McGrath, Ana Ponsford and Casey Richardson, (back) James Sullivan, Alex Rosten, Thomas Regent, Adam Rodwell, Mozes Olsen, Kurt Pajuczok, Tom Dyer and Joey Reed.

Bombala Police Remembrance Day service The community is being invited to gather at the Bombala Police Station tomorrow, September 29 for a special National Police Remembrance Day Service. Police Remembrance Day gives police around the country an opportunity to pause and honour officers whose lives have been cut short while performing their duty as a police officer. This important occasion is also a time to remember police officers who have lost their lives through illness or other circumstances. Bombala Senior Constables Nathan Marks and Steven Gay invite community members to join them at 9.30am at the station on the Thursday, with NSW Fire & Rescue and NSW Ambulance Service also attending to show support. Following the service light refreshments will be served and the community will have the chance to mingle with the area’s local emergency service personnel and other guests.

Clarification and an apology Last week’s edition of The Monaro Post reported the donation of a handmade timber aeroplane to the Cooma Car Club by Derek Wood. Information received by The Monaro Post

was that Mr Wood was deceased, however his wife Daphne has assured us that he is still with us. The Monaro Post offers their apologies to Mr and Mrs Wood for the misunderstanding.

Food for Fines Foodcare program making a difference Christmas is looming and Monaro Regional Libraries (MRL) are joining many other Public Libraries across Australia in the annual ‘Food for Fines’ campaign. During October and November Monaro Regional Libraries are asking members to return their overdue books, as fees on overdue books will be removed in exchange for non-perishable foods. The donated non-perishables will go to local charities for Christmas Hampers. Non-perishables can be placed into tubs at Cooma or Bombala Libraries, The Mobile Library or The Snowy Mountains Neighbourhood Centre in Jindabyne. In return library staff will remove any outstanding late fees. Suggested food items include all tinned goods, Christmas cakes and puddings, pasta sauces, tea bags, coffee, vegemite, jams and honey. “This campaign is a very simple way for Council to offer local assistance and highlight the work local charity organisations do across the region. The Libraries are looking forward to the return of late items, and seeing those tubs fill with an abundance of articles for Christmas Hampers”, said General Manager Joe Vescio. For more information on Food for Fines, contact Cooma Library on 6455 1730, Bombala Library on 6458 3196 or Snowy Mountains Neighborhood Centre on 6457 1044.

It’s the little known community program making a big difference in the lives of many locals. As word spreads about the Lifegate Community Foodcare program in Cooma, this regionally unique service continues to expand its reach across the Monaro. Lifegate Christian Church in Yulin Ave, Cooma, operates a community outreach program every Thursday morning. Locals on welfare payments are able to purchase cheaper groceries and take home free fresh produce in a bid to help them keep atop of their household budgets. Lifegate Community Pastor, Chris Clarke, has headed up the Foodcare program since its formation in June 2014. He says Foodcare allows people a realistic shopping experience while providing a community support network. “It’s not just a support service, it’s about doing community together,” Pastor Clarke said. “One point about the program is that it’s not just for those in


desperate need but it also takes pressure off the household budget. Reducing stress and tension in the home is just as important.” The program is approaching an important milestone with only four more signatures needed to reach 300 Foodcare members. To utilise the service people must first sign up as a member, a fee of $2 per year. Not only are there heavily discounted items, but fresh produce is free. This is a facet of the program Pastor Clarke is quite proud off. “We have great community support. Aldi in Cooma helps

with produce while Sandi’s Bakehouse lets us run a weekly pick up,” Pastor Clarke said. “There’s also the weekly drop off to fill our pantry from Foodbank in Sydney.” Allowing people to shop in a similar environment to that of a retail space is one of Foodcare’s goals. Pastor Clarke believes this ensures their members feel valued when doing their Thursday shop. “We have it set up as a shop. This adds to the value and dignity we place on our members.” “It’s the only type of program

of this nature in the region that gives out actual food. We also do emergency hampers with a difference where instead of prepackaged hampers, members pick their own food.” Such is the value of this community program, Pastor Clarke is hopeful more people will become aware of the service provided. “Word is still getting out there. We receive referrals from other community services, Mission Australia is quite active with this.” “The majority of people finding out about Foodcare is through word of mouth. “We’re hoping to have an afternoon service available in the future where people can come after school or work to shop.”

Lifegate Community Foodcare members Nanda Malcolm, Nancy and Joshua Groves, join Pastor Chris Clarke for the weekly shop.

Garage Sale Trail 2016 Households and groups across Snowy Monaro region are getting ready to join hundreds of thousands of people across Australia on Saturday 22 October as part of the national Garage Sale Trail event. It is less than one month to go and national promotion of Australia’s big day of good stuff will start soon. Garage Sale Trail is calling on all Aussies to get involved. Not because having a garage sale on one day will change the course of the world or even Australia’s environmental course but because it’s a symbol and celebration of being conscious that we can all make a difference to the plight of the planet and our local community too. Buying or selling at a garage sale is one of those simple actions we can all do as part of a whole range of behaviours to lead a more sustainable lifestyle....and make a few bucks in the process. Being part of Garage Sale Trail is a great opportunity to sell unwanted goods and make some money - last year, the average seller made over $300. Individual as well as group garage sales are welcome, so start thinking about what you can sell and maybe even have a chat to your neighbours or community group to organise a combined effort. It’s also a great day to have a fundraiser, with thousands of people expected

Enjoying a day by the lake...

The picnic blankets and the sunscreen were out at the Day by the Lake event hosted by Rydges Snowy Mountains in Jindabyne on Saturday. It was a great family day with heaps of market stalls, delicious food and live music to enjoy. The face painting, fairy floss and jumping castle were a real hit with the kids and the scenic helicopter rides, courtesy of Jindabyne Aero Club, were a hit with everyone. With a big boost in numbers from last year, it was the perfect way to celebrate the end of winter.

A special visitor at the Ladies Probus meeting

With a different guest speaker each month, this is the first time the Ladies Probus Club has had a four-legged visitor. Andy the Ambassador Dog came along with his owner Katrine Mooney who is a spokesperson for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. Andy was trained as a Guide Dog however at just 14 months old he caught meningitis, which is quite rare in dogs. Being very ill, he had to retire from being a Guide Dog, but once he recovered he instead became an Ambassador Dog. Andy travels around with Katrine, spreading awareness about the Guide Dogs organisation and the various services they offer for the vision impaired. Guide Dogs has been in operation for nearly 60 years and is operated completely through community support. Katrine told the ladies about the process of training the Guide Dogs. New purebred Labradors, Golden Retrievers and Labrador/Golden Retriever cross puppies arrive at the training centre at eight weeks old. Checked by vets, they are then given to specifically chosen ‘puppy raisers’ who take them home to train for 12 months. These trainers help the dogs learn general obedience and social skills, getting them used to different noises and environments. Next they come in to the training centre where they are assessed as to whether they are suited to become Guide Dogs. Prospective Guide Dogs must be eager to work, with good concentration and initiative. They must also control the temptation to be distracted by other animals. If found to be unsuitable, there are many other career paths available to the dogs, such as the Pets as Therapy program, or as Ambassador Dogs, like Andy. If they are selected to become a Guide Dog, they go through specific Guide Dog training for 20 weeks. Katrine explained there are very complex tasks they need to learn, such as getting on and off trains, finding the chair when their person is attending an event with assigned seating and refusing commands that will put their person in danger – such as walking over a hole, onto a road, etc. They are also taught that once their harness is on, they are working. Many people are unaware that by touching or talking to a Guide Dog while they are working is very distracting for them. Once a dog is assigned to a person, a special trainer goes with them to help adjust the dog and the person to one

another and to help the dog become familiar with the specific day to day tasks required for that particular person. A total of $35,000 is spent for each dog to be raised and trained through the Guide Dog program, and they are offered to those in need as a free service. The majority of the services provided by Guide Dogs are actually the provision mobility canes. There are also other services provided by Guide Dogs that most people might be unaware of, including pets as therapy, canes and other electronic devices such as GPS and phones, children’s programs and stroke programs.

President of the Ladies Probus Hazel McKenzie-Kay said that Katrine and Andy were well received by the ladies who found the talk very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed meeting Andy. “I would like to say a special thank you to the Cooma Ex Services Club for allowing us to have Andy the Ambassador Dog come to our meeting,” she said. The Ladies Probus will be meeting again on Wednesday October 12 with guest speaker Gretta Seubert, who will tell travel stories from her time working for QANTAS and SMEC.

Men’s Probus Club enjoy September talk September’s talk to the Cooma Men’s Probus Club was by Zoe Dawson, Manager of the Cooma Universities Centre, assisted by Shannon PaytonMcDonald. This is a return visit by Zoe, and she filled us in on developments over the last two years. The first thing we were reminded of was that the centre is sponsored by Snowy Hydro, initially providing $600,000 for set-up, and presently $3000,000 annually in support; and this body must be congratulated for all that it has done for Cooma and district over the years. The CUC is incorporated, the director being Duncan Taylor,

‹ :/67 36*(3 ‹:/6736*(3 ‹)<@36*(3 ‹:<7769;36*(3

and it aims to bring university study to the people. This saves on the costs of accommodation and travel. Young people are kept in town and a study culture is encouraged. The CUC is located in Bombala St, next to Boyce’s, and backs on the Cooma TAFE, with which it shares facilities as needed. 18 computers, with WiFi and fast internet speeds are available. The CUC currently works with 26 universities, and over 6,000 students have used the centre since its opening in March 2013. As many as 160 students per month use the centre. Students may be full or part time, and can study a

mixed range of courses, at any university , and can also sit for their exams under CUC supervision. In addition tutorials are available for face to face work, in both teaching and in tourism-oriented business studies, using locally available qualified tutors. The work of the centre has attracted notice from Councils state-wide, and the next centre may be the Hilltops centre, covering Young, Boorowa and Cowra, with interest from Broken Hill, Parkes and Narrabri, the major difficulty being that most other areas do not have a sponsor such as Snowy Hydro. Distance with Assistance is

the rallying cry in this computer age, and a new concept called Pathways is scheduled. This will be a four-year course and will provide first year for primary school teachers and Early Childhood qualifications, leading to accreditation and practical teaching training After several comments and questions, Russell Fox proposed a vote of thanks. And do not forget, if you are retired, are bored and looking for something to help fill your days, the Men’s Probus Club would love to hear from you.

SMGS farewell Year 12 class of 2016 Friday September 23 marked the conclusion of formal schooling for our graduating Year 12 class, as they now prepare for the final stage of their school education, their HSC examination, at the start

of next term. It is a significant day for these students, before a new chapter in their lives begins. SMGS staff members celebrated this milestone with the students at the Year 12 Farewell Breakfast

and then later, the whole school and Year 12 parents were present for the Year 12 Farewell Chapel. The school community was able to acknowledge the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; considerable contributions over the

years and to wish them well for the future. Good luck to all of the Year 12 students in the Snowy as they prepare for their HSC.

She Skis was born from the idea that Women like doing things together. From road trips to brunch, climbing mountains or conquering shopping centres whatever it might be women all over the world are doing it in groups. Why should skiing and snowboarding be any different? Watching movies like Shades of winter or Lynsey Dyers "Pretty Faces", what you get is groups of Women travelling the world together having a fantastic time, granted

they are ripping off cliffs that give me the heebie-jeebies, but you get a general idea. These movies give me a real sense of what it is like to be a skier girl. That is something that I would like to share with the rest of the world. There are many times you see a fantastic skier/snowboarder turn into a delicate flower when in the company of her male counterparts, or not try and show off her newly found skills on the slopes, for fears of holding

anyone up. We have plans to change all that, giving women the chance to push themselves to be the kind of skier or snowboarder that they wish to be. Whether she wishes to grow her confidence on the slopes or develop a keen sense of aprĂŠ, we are here to help. So, in summary, the general idea behind She Skis is riding with other women and having the best fun there is to be had.

The Postman nearly ran off the road last week, when an Aunty ABC journalist confessed on air that she likes DS because she can have a dip at Bondi after work. Lucky girl, The Postman is sure we would all like to have a dip at Bondi, if only we lived in Sydney, where it gets lighter earlier than it does inland. For those of us who have a lot to do of a morning, before starting our ‘real’ jobs, being plunged back into a Stygian gloom with the early start of DS is not only BLOODY annoying, it is also a form of discrimination. Morning people – it’s time to write to the local member and state our grievances. Or email Trevor Khan – treveor.khan@ and show your support for a revision. If we can contemplate a $170 million federal plebiscite for one issue, why can’t the State fund a plebiscite or referendum on daylight savings? Sad to see the end of the SMEC era in Cooma last Friday. Must be time the complex was donated back to the community, along with the historical items already pledged.

Quiz questions 1.

Which planet boasts the largest known volcano in our solar system?


How many fingers and toes does a typical frog have?


Which contributes more to the greenhouse effect – a kilogram of methane, or a kilogram of carbon dioxide?


How fast can a hippopotamus run?


Name all the planets that have only one moon.

Quiz answers

Senator Khan wants daylight savings to end a month earlier. Senator Khan could go a lot further with his Bill – he could move that the wretched time change begins a month later, as well!

CSIRO Double Helix Quiz

Mars has the largest known volcano in our solar system, Olympus Mons. A typical frog has four fingers on each front leg, and five toes on each back leg, making 18 fingers and toes in total.

He believes the rural community is disadvantaged by the length of time daylight savings is imposed on the state – from this weekend until the end of March.

Brian Curzon Cooma Rural Resident


But then there is Senator Trevor Khan, who has a bill going to the NSW Parliament to have daylight savings (DS) REDUCED.


The dictatorial stance taken by NSW Premier Mike Baird on the greyhound industry is a fine illustration of pollies who have their ears just painted on.

Methane contributes more to the greenhouse effect, as it is about 20 times better at trapping heat inside the atmosphere. Hippopotamuses have been spotted running at up to 30 kilometres per hour!

Marketing logic questioned Editor, I have read with great interest over the past few months Tourism Snowy Mountains plans of marketing into SE Asia in particular Singapore and question the logic behind this strategy. Regional Australia attracts approximately 10 percent of international visitation and if a region such as the Snowy Mountains is fortunate enough it may attract one percent of

this market, so why with Tourism Snowy Mountains continued complaining re lack of support and funding would such an organisation worry about high hanging fruit with trade missions and brochures into Singapore. What is the expected ROI? With the expertise we have come to expect from this organisation over recent times surely the low hanging fruit would be far more cost effective.

If you believe I am being hard on the organisation I ask why then wasn’t the Snowy Scheme with its magical waterways and aquatic playground marketed through DNSW and Tourism Australia’s Coastal Aquatic campaign, low hanging fruit where the State Tourism Organisation and Tourism Australia do all the heavy lifting. Food for thought. David Sheldon

Historical society thanks SMEC Editor, The Cooma Monaro Historical Society would like to publically thank the Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation for the donation of items that it recently made. These items were an integral part of the history of the SMA and SMEC so have a close connection to this area and its history. It is only with the donation of historical items, which can then be preserved, that our future generations will be able to better understand the conditions under which our forebears lived and worked. The SMA and SMEC formed such an

integral part of the history of the Cooma and surrounding areas that any items that can be kept and displayed locally must be of ongoing benefit to the community, especially in conjunction with the existing displays in Cooma and Adaminaby. The next step will be an appropriate venue to house these items, and display them to their best advantage. On behalf of the Historical Society, and the public, thank you SMEC. Neroli O’Neill Cooma Monaro Historical Society.

Dementia sufferers need support Editor, During Dementia Awareness Month, September, Alzheimer’s Australia called for greater awareness and understanding of dementia so people living with the condition feel less isolated and alone. There are more than 353,000 Australians with dementia and an estimated 1.2 million people involved in the care of someone with dementia. In the Monaro electorate there are an estimated 900 people living with dementia. That figure is projected to increase to about 3,050 by 2050. A survey just released by Alzheimer’s Australia has found that people with dementia are almost twice as likely to have high rates of loneliness, and people with dementia and carers are significantly more lonely than the general population. We hear repeatedly that when someone is diagnosed with dementia, friendships and some family relationships suddenly

disappear because people simply don’t know how to interact with their friend or loved one with dementia. Treating people with the same respect, kindness, inclusiveness and thoughtfulness you always have is what makes a difference to them. They are still the same person they were before the diagnosis. They just may need a little bit more time, understanding and support. I encourage your readers to find out more by going to au. The Hon.

Bombala garden day Eulogy for Kathleen (Kit) Wallace

The Bombala Anglican Parish Garden Day will once again be enjoyed on December 3 this year, with last year’s event being a huge success. Greenthumbs, get that date locked in now! Local greenthumbs and those who simply enjoy a social stroll through beautiful surrounds are urged to set aside Saturday, December 3 for Bombala’s Anglican Parish Garden Day. The annual event takes in a different selection of the finest gardens in the district each year and has become a big drawcard for garden lovers right across the region, and even further afield. On December 3 a group of five lovely gardens will be on display, and their summer beauty will no doubt be greatly admired by all who come along, particularly considering the amazing season we are currently experiencing. The day will commence at 10am with registration and morning tea at Di and Matt Green’s property,

“Greenshill”, located 3.4kms from Bombala on the Cann Valley Highway. Signage will be visible from Wedmore Road. Here visitors will not only enjoy the beautiful garden, but will also collect maps and information for the rest of the gardens opening on the day. The cost is just $20 per person, which covers entry into all five gardens up until 4pm, as well as morning tea and lunch, which will be enjoyed between 12.30 and 2.30pm. There will also be a raffle and a variety of local market stalls adding further interest to the day. So be sure to mark Saturday, December 3 on your calendar, bring along some friends and enjoy the beautiful gardens of Bombala.

Kit was the youngest of 9 children born to Charlotte and James Thompson. She was a great sportswoman, at tennis, skiing - a very feisty hockey player. As time went by, golf became her forte. Kit was the first one in the family to take golf up at Coolamatong golf club. She also loved fishing, she and Vaughan often went out to Louth or to Burrinjuck Dam chasing the elusive Murray cod. Kit married her sweetheart Vaughan Wallace in 1940, and they lived at Jindabyne Station. Their three children are Bob, Geoff and Sandra. The family purchased “Avoca” at Young in 1957, when the Jindabyne property was resumed by the Snowy Mountains Authority for the Jindabyne dam. The present cemetery is located in the Nettin paddock on their former property. At Young, Kit was the matriarch of one of the best golfing families in Australia, all members playing off single figures. Kit was ladies champion in 1960, 1961 and 1963, only to have the title wrestled from her by Sandra the following year. By this time Bob and Margaret, Geoff and Sandra, Sandra and Barry were married, and the grandchildren were coming along. Kit was an exceptional grandmother and even

prouder great grandmother, who loved being updated on the activities in which they were involved. As a homemaker, her cooking was legendary, the high teas at the golf club were all the richer for her pavlovas - Kit was a great knitter, who produced garments for the family. The expanding family necessitated a larger property, therefore in January 1980, a property was purchased at St George Qld. When we moved there, Kit took up another two extracurricular activities - crochet and shooting. With her trusty 410, her best bagging was 12 brown snakes in a season! Her outstanding achievement came when she not only shot a snake on the front path, but also got the car as well! In 1984, Kit and Vaughan retired to Ocean Shores where Kit was always support crew for Sandra in her business. Vaughan passed away in September 1998. Kit purchased a unit at Bimbimbie Retirement Village, Merimbula, in 2008, where she happily resided until she had a bad fall, fracturing vertabrae in her back - she then moved into the hostel, where she was cared for with great love until her passing. Kit had a deep and abiding faith in the Lord, and she regularly attended church each week, until her health issues prevented her from so doing, and we know that she is absent from the body and present with the Lord.

CTP changes protest A state-wide campaign highlighting the key benefits that will be lost under the NSW Government’s proposed changes to CTP Green Slip Insurance was launched by the Law Society of NSW and the NSW Bar Association today. “CTP Changes: Adding Insult to Injury” aims to increase public

understanding of the key benefits currently covered by their CTP Green Slip insurance. President of the Law Society of NSW, Gary Ulman, said that behind the headline of reducing premiums, the Government is set to slash cover. “Only a few people in the community are aware what little coverage and support they will get if under the proposed changes that are due before Parliament in a matter of days,” he said. “In most cases benefits will be slashed after as little as five years, including compensation for past and future lost earnings, medical treatment expenses, and family care and support - all of which is available under the current CTP Green Slip scheme. “We are concerned that under the NSW Government proposal which is a modified “no fault” scheme, there will be upwards of a staggering 7,000 at fault drivers claiming benefits each year,

putting a huge amount of additional pressure on the scheme and reducing benefits for those who are not at fault,” he said. President of the NSW Bar Association, Mr Noel Hutley SC said that under the current proposals, for example, loss of earnings would be restricted to 5 years and capped at 1.5 time Average Weekly earnings. This is particularly harsh for those who are injured but who have a long working life ahead of them. It also singles out those who rely on their physical fitness to earn a living – such as tradespeople,” Mr Hultey said. “Under the proposed scheme most benefits will also be drip-fed to injured motorists for limited periods by the insurers and based on a complex and rigid system that doesn’t take account of people’s personal or family circumstances,” he said.

Let’s talk about the layout. Bedrooms two and three are large approx. 12m2 in size. The kitchen has a Walk in Pantry, timber bench tops and a gas commercial oven, further features include a formal dining room

and large loungeroom with fireplace. A lovely feature is the main bedroom it is huge over 19m2 in size and also has a large ensuite and a walk in wardrobe that would be the envy of every lady. The exterior additions include a double garage and extra workshop space. The garage houses the solar power and an extra feature is the wind powered turbine. The current owners also supplement an income by growing all types of herbs and salad greens from the hydroponic greenhouse. A covered veranda allows you to sit comfortably and overlook the iconic Snowy River as it borders the south boundary complete with pumping rights, or in winter the snow capped main range is also visible.

Fibre of Football promotes wool

Below: Hamish and father Angus McLachlan. Above: McLachlan Merinos. High profile Channel 7 sports presenter Hamish McLachlan features in the most recent Fibre of Football video produced inhouse by AWI. The video of Hamish and his father Angus on the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woolgrowing property in the eastern Adelaide Hills in South Australia is the latest in a long line of videos highlighting the many great stories behind wool and its link with Australian football. From a family long associated with growing wool, Hamish was keen to be involved in AWIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fibre of Football campaign that has significantly lifted the profile and sales of wool amongst the millions of AFL supporters across Australia. The campaign has enjoyed another stellar year with sales of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woollen jumpers, scarves, beanies and gloves exceeding expectations. All AFL clubs have got behind the campaign, which celebrates the great connection between Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native game and our wonderful natural fibre. Shop AFL woollen range. In the video, Hamish and his father Angus talk of the opportunities, freedoms and responsibilities that come with growing up on a farm and the importance of sheep and

wool to the McLachlan family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the one place where I truly feel at home,â&#x20AC;? Hamish says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We often speak about how Australia used to ride on the sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our family has been lucky to do. Sheep and wool is an important part of our family.â&#x20AC;? The latest drone technology was used to capture footage of Merino ewes and lambs amongst gum tree lined creeks and granite outcrops that are typical of the landscape of the Adelaide Hills. There is clearly a strong bond between the two as they recount the years of the four boys growing up; the trials, tribulations and humour of family life on a farm. Hamish at one stage referencing the day his brother Gillon, now CEO of the AFL, locked him in a cattle crush: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you think

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be allowed to lock your brother in a cattle crush for eight hours these days?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, marginally exaggerated at eight hours, we heard your squealing after about eight minutes,â&#x20AC;? laughs Angus. The video, now on YouTube and Facebook, aired on the Channel 7 Game Day program hosted by Hamish and joins a long line of Fibre of Football videos that have been seen on Channel 7. Similar background videos featuring AFL champions Nat Fyfe, Luke Breust and Bernie Vince have all been shown on Channel 7. Together with a video of Geelong champion Tom Hawkins, the video series has enjoyed well over 10 million views across traditional and social media platforms.

Broad support for land, biodiversity law reform NSW Farmers is pleased to see a review of the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed biodiversity reform package showing broad agreement across submissions that there is a need for land management and biodiversity conservation reform. NSW Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Conservation and Resource Management Committee Chair and Ilford grazier Mitchell Clapham is pleased the report acknowledges the flaws of the current legislation and the need to move forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know the current laws are sending biodiversity backwards. We need modern, scientific and equitable legislation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been calling for the repeal of the Native Vegetation Act 2003 because it promulgates the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lock up and leaveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ideology, which is a proven way to destroy biodiversity, turning potentially high conservation value areas into rack and ruin, and turning farmers offside in the process. Biodiversity laws affect farmers and the rural communities they live in, directly, every single day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report on the new Biodiversity Act submissions shows one element of universal agreement: the current Act is out-dated, needs reform, and farmers need a more equitable scheme to work with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our submission represents the views of our thousands of members. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;click and submitâ&#x20AC;? opposition to the

Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed reform package is a predictable response from the environmental lobbyitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all too easy for those not directly affected by these laws to oppose, and not offer any viable solution. The science says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lock up and leaveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farmers are the best placed to provide ecosystem services, and in order to do that they need to be able to manage vegetation in the best interests of the farms and of the region,â&#x20AC;? Mr Clapham said. NSW Farmers is committed to achieving workable land reform that will increase farm productivity and improve biodiversity outcomes. While the proposed reforms go some of the way to helping farmers and biodiversity, NSW Farmers is calling for key amendments. The Association would like to see the caps removed from the codes of practices, as well as biodiversity schemes that farmers can actually access. Farmers need to be able to make decisions on-farm that are in the best interests of both productivity and the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an opportunity to achieve biodiversity improvement and productivity gains to ensure food and fibre supply for future generations,â&#x20AC;? Mr Clapham concluded. Visit farmers4landreform. to get the whole picture.

Spotted quolls discovered near Bendoc Two rare and threatened Spot-tailed Quolls have been discovered in the Bendoc region in East Gippsland. Spot-tailed Quolls are the largest carnivorous marsupial on mainland Australia, they are easily identified by their brown coats, with conspicuous white spots over their body and tail. The species is currently classified as

endangered on mainland Australia. The detections are only the second time the species has been found in over five years of VicForests pre-harvest surveys. Dr Chela Powell, Manager, Biodiversity Research & Development for VicForests said this discovery is very significant as detections of these animals have been quite rare in recent years across East Gippsland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an exciting find. We captured images of what appears to be two different Spot-tailed Quolls on remote, infra-red cameras during one of our targeted pre-harvest Contact fauna surveys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before this discovery there had only been one sighting in over five years of pre-harvest surveys by across the East

Gippsland region,â&#x20AC;? Dr Powell said. VicForests ensures that important biodiversity values, including threatened species such as Spot-tailed Quolls, are identified and appropriately protected from timber harvesting operations. This includes engaging independent ecologists to conduct targeted surveys in areas planned for harvest on sites which are most likely to contain threatened species. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a Spot-tailed Quoll is detected in an area planned for harvest, VicForests works with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to create a Special Management Plan to protect the animal from any harvesting operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The area that contains the most ideal habitat for the species is reserved and excluded from harvesting operations,â&#x20AC;? Dr Powell said. The planning stage of any harvesting operation is a long and detailed process that can take over a year to complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Targeted threatened species surveys are part of our planning process that is undertaken before any harvesting operations occur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Spot-tailed Quoll plays an ecologically important role as Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest native predator,â&#x20AC;? Dr Powell said. Pictured: VicForests has captured images of what appears to be two rare Spot-tailed Quolls in the Bendoc area.

Log truck awareness campaign for Imlay Road

A series of banners designed by truck drivers have been put up along Imlay Road as part of a wider campaign to reduce truck rollovers.

A log truck driver awareness campaign is aiming to drive down the incidence of truck rollovers on Imlay Road and improve safety on local roads used by log trucks. Forestry Corporation of NSW, who manage Imlay Road, developed the driver awareness campaign in conjunction with Australian Trucking Safety Services and Solutions with the support of the South East Truck Safety Committee. This a local committee comprising Forestry Corporation, Pentarch Forestry Services, VicForests, Roads and Maritime Services, NSW Police, local councils and VicRoads. Forestry Corporation’s Bombalabased Sales and Haulage Coordinator Tim Gillespie-Jones said the campaign was developed in response to a recent spike in heavy vehicle accidents involving loaded log trucks, including two rollovers on the 57-kilometre Imlay Road alone over the past seven months. “Imlay Road is a key route for transporting log products from Forestry Corporation’s softwood plantations and native forests to local timber processors, so it sees around 7,000 truck movements a year. We want to see each and every one of these trips completed safely,” Mr Gillespie-Jones said. “With more than 500 locals employed

directly in the industry, a bad accident on Imlay Road could have lasting consequences for local families and would likely be felt by the whole community. “While we’ve been lucky that no one’s been seriously hurt, everyone in the supply chain is concerned about the recent spike in truck rollovers and wants to be involved in the solution. “We needed a new approach to driver safety, so we have been working directly with drivers to tackle the issue. Earlier in the year we ran training seminars to educate drivers about preventing rollovers and we have now installed a series of banners along Imlay Road that have been designed by drivers to remind them of this training each and every time they use the road.” Alan Pincott from Australian Trucking Safety Services and Solutions, who was instrumental in developing and implementing VicRoads’ successful Heavy Vehicle Roll Over Prevention Program, said increasing driver awareness would go a long way to reducing the

likelihood of another accident. “It’s great to see these guys all working together to look after each other. These are highly skilled professionals and driving a loaded 25 metre B-Double down the Imlay requires an incredible amount of skill and concentration. “A minor distraction or lapse in concentration will bring you unstuck very quickly,” Mr Pincott said. Mr Gillespie-Jones said new banners would go up every few months to reinforce the safety message.

“Imlay Road is used by the whole community, so we are inviting local schools to come up with safety slogans for new banners. Forestry Corporation and Allied Natural Wood Exports will provide a prize for the best slogan. Contact our Bombala office on 6459 5200 for details,” Mr Gillespie-Jones said.

Sheep Genetics is a highly successful service provider to the sheep industry delivering worldclass genetic evaluation services designed to grow profitability for producers and the broader industry. Since 2005, the program has been cofunded by MLA and Australian Wool Innovation (AWI). Under the new Business Plan, Sheep Genetics will now be solely managed by MLA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with AWI to contribute to R&D projects on an individual project basis. Sheep Genetics will continue to deliver LAMBPLAN, the genetics evaluation service for the prime lamb industry, and, MERINOSELECT, servicing the wool industry. It also delivers the genetic evaluation for the Dohne Merino breed and KIDPLAN, a goat industry service. MLA General Manager, Producer Consultation & Adoption, Mick Crowley said the new Business Plan will enable Sheep Genetics to remain at the forefront of livestock genetics and expand its capabilities over the next five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Genetic improvement in livestock is critical to future growth and productivity gains across the industry,â&#x20AC;? Mr Crowley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The genetic evaluation services provided by Sheep Genetics underpin breeding decisions

that drive genetic gain in seedstock flocks which then flows through to commercial flocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Genetics is a key profit driver for livestock industries and for individual producers. Unlike many other farm inputs, genetic superiority is permanent and cumulative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Under the new plan, Sheep Genetics will continue to provide accurate, credible information on the breeding value of sheep as well as tools to make optimum use of this information at individual animal, flock and industry levels.â&#x20AC;? Mr Crowley said Sheep Genetics will play a key role in the data revolution occurring across the sheep and broader livestock industry.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technology to identify animals, measure traits of interest and facilitate exchange of data is advancing rapidly in our industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are opportunities for Sheep Genetics to collaborate with other organisations and private companies and to develop new product streams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something which is facilitated by the new Business Plan.â&#x20AC;? The Sheep Genetics Business Plan links directly to the MLA Strategic Plan 2016-2020 and the Meat Industry Strategic Plan 2020 (MISP), with genetics and genomics investment considered a high priority. Sheep Genetics will also be part of MLAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to the National Livestock Genetics Consortium â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the RD&A investments aligning to the priorities being established by the consortium.

An increase in the $A by close to two cents was one of the catalysts for the wool market to ease by 24c/kg this week. The better, more stylish wools were less impacted by the fall, particularly good fine and superfine wools that met strong competition from both European and Chinese interests. It is evident that some Chinese Mills now have a real thirst for these wools, which is creating much stronger competition on these lots. The selection was again mixed this week with lots containing higher VM content, colour, cot or low tensile strength meeting some resistance from buyers. Whilst the market in both Sydney and Melbourne closed at cheaper levels on Thursday, the Freemantle market which closes after the east

coast showed signs of the market rebounding which hopefully signals a positive market next week. In Wuxi China this weekend the annual Nanjing Wool Market Conference will take place. This is a meeting of the Chinese wool industry and a large number of Australian delegates attend. It is an important meeting for Australian Exporters as they meet with their clients and discuss current and future business opportunities. Hopefully this will result in a number of fresh orders in the market over the next few weeks.

This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales Next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national offering will consist of 35,553 bales. We will offer our catalogues for sale on Thursday , September 29, 2016.

Crowds flock to see Pinocchio Snowy Mountains


University of the Third Age Tablets and Smartphones – how do you even…? On Wednesdays between 1.30 and 2.30pm the Snowy Mountains U3A conduct a friendly self-help user group at the SMU3A Shed in Sharp Street, Cooma. The members get together to discuss how to use their tablets and/or smartphones, including both Apple and Android devices. The object of the session is for members to get together and help each other with tips and techniques on how to get the best out of their devices. This could range from how to conserve battery usage to how to communicate by using Skype or Facetime. Other areas we have covered in the past include how to manage your emails, social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram, Calendar, ICloud, Camera, Contacts and some useful apps such as the Emergency app and the Fires Near me app. We have also discussed internet scams – how to recognize them and where to go to find out information on the latest scam. If there is some area where you need some help, or you have a question to ask, or even if you just want to come along and talk about your device and show others what you have learnt to do, please come along next Wednesday. If you would like to join us, you do need to become a member of SMU3A ($40 annually) plus a $1 donation each session to help with general costs. However, you are allowed a free trial session initially before joining. Information on the Using Tablets and Smartphones sessions, and all other courses is on our website Please check it out – we have a big variety of courses available to members. French: Why do we go to the Snowy Mountains U3A French class? Learning a new language is classified as one of the most important mental activities one can do to keep the brain active. One of the next best things is to communicate with other people. Here in the French class, we love both. Great brain stimulation and lots of friendship. In our French class there are resources we share, including books and technologies in class and at home. Networking with (and within) the U3A is a further benefit we enjoy. We than Marie for her hospitality and support when we catch a French film chez-elle each term. We share travel plans, maps, ideas and dreams, preparing for overseas visits, then reports and reviews are de riguer on return to class here but there are no exams! We are grateful to Suzanne and Francois for their guidance and wonderful encouragement at our classes. We are always glad to see Francois here, first up on Monday mornings to hear and listen to a true French reading when we are learning a new work en Francais. Thank you too to the U3A for this opportunity to meet and share with our colleagues and to welcome visitors and we appreciate the U3A’s sustained commitment to adult learning in our local context and geography. Thank you!

The Bombala Public School welcomed a huge crowd of family and friends along to the Multipurpose Hall last Thursday evening to enjoy its spectacular production of “Pinocchio”. Students from Kindergarten right through to Year 6 spent weeks preparing and rehearsing for the play, which was a knock out success. The performances of the students went well above expectations, and the production

was highly praised by all who enjoyed both the big play night, and the matinee shown the previous afternoon. A huge congratulations to all of those involved both in the lead up to and the performances of “Pinocchio”. The students of the Bombala Public School donned their costumes for their highly acclaimed production, “Pinocchio” last Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night.

Snowy Mountains Christian School skiing program Snowy Mountains Christian school had the final day of its skiing program last Friday. With some fresh snow on the ground the students made their final turns and carved it up. Mrs Wadland was able to spend time with both the snowboarders and skiers throughout the day. The snowboarders spent the morning perfecting jumps, ollies and nollies. The skiers went over to Happy Valley and did some terrain parks. The students were doing rollers and tight corners with the experienced riders. The school had another year of its seven week program and it was just as good as the first. Thanks to the number of parents (and older brother) who volunteered to help with transport these included – Joel Rackley, Catherine Davis, Sarah Horneman, Alec Perebeoff, Tracey Alcock, Anthony van der Plaat, Farhad Khan, Sam Hornsey, Ian and Fiona Jauncey.

Wet weather delays shield again Amphicar best display Once again, rain washed out the September round of the Bill Elder Shield and this was rescheduled for today, weather permitting. Semi finals in the Club Fours and Don Jarvis Plate were completed on Saturday. Peter Harris, Kim Weston, Ross Russell and Mel Storta had a 9/0 lead over Mario Frezza, John Vincent Peter Marsicano and Ignazio Mondello after just five ends and increased it to 14/5 on 10. Ignazio’s team then mounted a come back and hit the front 17/16 on 18. One shot on each of the remaining three ends to Mel’s team put them in to the final 19/17. The battle between Bob Lahy, Max Butler, Daniel Clough (subbing for Tony Gray) and Geoff Venables against Brian Searle, Richard Nichols (subbing for Neil McGregor), Peter Caldwell and Mark Buckley was just that with only a few shots separating them through to end 14 where the scores were locked up 9/9. On 15 Mark’s team scored four shots to give them an advantage late in the game, which they managed to retain and went on to win 17/14 and a place in the final against Mel Storta’s team in Sunday’s Final. In Don Jarvis Plate it was unfortunate that Wayne Flynn, John Barnes, Colin Roberson and Wayne Lodge had to forfeit to Ken Rees, Bob Douglass, Mick Mayhew and Mike Mannile to put the latter in to the final. However Allan Crowe, Rowen

Venables, Darren Collins and John Schoon quickly set about establishing a lead over Ron Wainwright, Steve Lapham, Denis Steinfort (subbing for Jack Sajina) and Paul Cannell which increased from 5/1 on four, then 15/4 and later 23/11 on 16. Paul’s team then mounted a comeback and did not allow their opposition to score again but fell short of victory with John’s team just hanging on to win 23/21. Peter Harris, Kim Weston Ross Russell and Mel Storta made a quick start in the final against Brian Searle, Peter Caldwell and Mark Buckley to lead 10/1 after just seven ends. This trend continued through to end 16 where Mel’s team scored five shots to take a convincing lead 19/8 and followed up later with four shots and win the Fours Championship for 2017 Season 25/10. The final of the Don Jarvis Plate started out at a more sedate pace with Allan Crowe, Rowen Venables, Darren Collins and John Schoon having a small 5/3 lead over Ken Rees, Bob Douglass Max Reeve (subbing for Mick Mayhew) and Mike Mannile on end seven. Six shots on eight for John’s team put them well ahead but spent five ends on 11. This proved to be a minor hold up as they outscored their opponents over the remainder of the game to runout winners 22/14 and have

their names engraved on the Plate for 2017 season. Saturday’s social bowls attracted a field of 10 players. Mike Mannile, Leonie Snell and Olga Jebbink had 11 shots on the card almost before Judy Locker, Bob Douglass and Cheryl Meillon had their bowls unpacked and did not let up in winning 16 of the 19 ends played by a score too numerous to mention. Ken Rees and Margherita Zasso were a little more forgiving against Sergio Roncelli and Renate Winckel in winning only 12 of the 21 played. However a couple of fours helped them in winning 23/15. Just four social bowlers on Sunday. Jack Sajina and Bob Lahy had a handy 8/2 lead over Maureen D’Amico and Denis Steinfort on end six and increased it to 15/3 five ends later. Although the ends were shared in the run home the points went to Jack and Bob to give them a win 28/15. To cater for teams entering the Sapphire Coast Super 6’s the Club Triples will now commence on Sunday October 16 and continue each Sunday with the final due to be played on Sunday November 4.

Players from the NSW Blues and Breakers as well as Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder travelled throughout NSW to visit schools and community groups. The program aims to increase participation in cricket at a grassroots level by enhancing skills and providing a fun platform for the kids to take part in the sport through T20 Blast clinics. One of the other major focuses on the program is educating teachers on how to coach cricket the kids to take the pressure off local club members who may have been taking on this role. Recently, Berridale Public School took part in the Country Blitz program with cricketers Ben Rohrer, Josh Laylor and Kriss Britt attending. The kids and teachers took part in a morning of drills and skills training led by Berridale cricketers Ben Hearn and Andrew O’Keefe and women’s test player Kriss

Britt, before being joined by Laylor and Rohrer who gave a question and answer before assisting in a T20 match. Rohrer said it is a great opportunity for the kids to have professional athletes come to regional areas and help enhance their skills. “We can expose kids and teachers to what drills they can do over the summer so guys from the clubs don’t have to keep coming in. “Kids in regional areas don’t see pro sportsman very often. You see the smiles on the kids faces they love it,” he said. He also mentioned that the players also get a lot out of it by spreading a positive mention and it is beneficial for the overall development of cricket as a sport. “It’s the three days that players look forward to every year. “It’s good to increase participation in the sport. It’s great for the kids and we love it. “We started playing in the back yard and local cricket with friends, that’s what it’s all about. We tell


the kids you’re not going to have a great game every game, we push the enjoyment factor,” he said. The Monaro District Cricket Association has been pushing junior development in recent years and is eager to see the participation of local girls increase. Kriss Britt is a women’s international player and a current ACT Meteors and Melbourne Renegades player in the women’s league and she hosted an all girl cricket skills afternoon last week. With the amazing success of the Womens T20 Big Bash last year and Women’s cricket world cup, the MDCA expects to see more girls playing cricket over the next few seasons and they are going to push hard to have a female Monaro representative side within the next few seasons. The free cricket workshop took place at Rotary Oval and saw 16 participants take part and organisers agree it was a great sign for things to come for female cricket in the region.
