Member for Eden-Monaro Mike Kelly and Minister for Health Tanya Plibersek have announced that the Federal Government will provide an extra $880,000 to Snowy River Shire Council for the GP Super Clinic at Jindabyne. The extra commitment adds to the initial Federal funding of $5.5million for the Super Clinic, which will begin construction in the coming weeks. The annoucement has been warmly received by Snowy River Mayor, John Cahill. “It’s a faantsastic thing – when the final drawings were in, we had to trim back the building to fit the funding. Now, we can go back to having the building we planned. “This is a tremednous shot out of the blue that Dr Kelly has been able to get the extra funding” Mayor Cahill said. Dr Kelly said the additional funding will enable the Super Clinic to be enhanced and purposebuilt with specialised consulting and acute-care areas where patients can be stabilised and treated. “I worked very hard to get this extra funding, so we can really get the most out of our investment for the benefit of the community,” he said. “Now, we will be able to make sure that

specialised acute care will be available to locals and the large number of visitors we get during the tourist season. This will, in turn, relieve the pressure on the nearest emergency department at Cooma.” Minister Plibersek said the Super Clinic would provide “integrated, multidisciplinary, patientcentred health care services under one roof”. It is expected the clinic will include a general practitioner, nurses and allied health specialists, who will have a strong focus on managing chronic disease and providing advice on modifying lifestyle. The Snowy River GP Super Clinic will provide bulk-billing for all healthcare cardholders, children under 16, pensioners, patients managed under a chronic disease program, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients. Minister Plibersek said the Government was investing significantly in the GP Super Clinics program and had committed around $650million to build more than 60 clinics around Australia, and upgrade and extend around 425 existing general practices, primary care and community health services, and Aboriginal Medical Services. Thirty-one GP Super Clinics are now either open, providing early services, or under construction.

Monaro Rural Health Service comes to an end

After 11 years of working to improve the health and wellbeing of Monaro residents, the Monaro Rural Health Service (MRHS) is sadly coming to an end. MRHS has always been funded by the Department of Health and Ageing under a Rural Primary Health Services grant (RPHS) and has also received funding for the past three years from the Preventative Health Initiative (PHI). Sadly both of these grants finished June 30 this year. The PHI funding has ceased to exist while the RPHS component is now transferring to the Southern NSW Medicare Local via a different funding stream. The Monaro Rural Health Service has made immeasurable contributions to the health of our community. The service has provided funding to Monaro Family Support Service, Cooma Youth, Snowy River Youth and Paediatric Physiotherapy (Southern NSW Local Health District). On top of this MRHS have supported and conducted projects such as free health checks, community exercise classes, men’s sheds, community gardens and cob ovens, plus a range of other work carried out by the brokered services. They have also supported Tai Chi and HeartMoves classes in Delegate and Bombala. Healthy Communities Manager, Kate Greenwood says she is sad that MRHS is coming to an end but she has still has high hopes for health in the Monaro community. “Over the 11 years that Monaro Rural Health Service has been running we have completed some amazing projects and provided and supported some great services which will all continue beyond the life of the grants,” said Ms Greenwood. “MRHS has been a wonderful example of three councils working together and we have completed some terrific work on a very tight budget.” The great news is that the Southern NSW Medicare Local is continuing to fund services previously funded by MRHS for at least the next 12 months, namely paediatric physiotherapy, youth health services and the Monaro Family Support Service. With these services being brokered directly by the Southern NSW Medicare Local, the MRHS, which was auspiced by Cooma-Monaro Shire Council and managed by a Joint Management Committee from across the 3 shires, will no longer exist. Ms Greenwood will take up a new position in the Southern NSW Medicare Local Health Promotion Team, based here on the Monaro. Chairperson, of Monaro Rural Health Service, Angela

Monaro Rural Health Service were famous for their free health checks at all sorts of events. Sue Walcott received a free health check from Kate Greenwood at the Dalgety Womens Day in May. Ingram has been involved with the service since its inception and is sad to see it go but is adamant that they have done everything they can to make sure the services offered by MRHS are continued. “We cannot stop the change but we need to ensure that the services continue on a local level. We have to continue to facilitate with local services, recognise the gaps in service delivery and lobby to fill those gaps,” Mrs Ingram explained. “It’s been fantastic to have been a part of a group of passionate people and we need to celebrate the work that we were able to achieve.” “Narelle Davis needs to be acknowledged for being the driving force behind the service to begin with. The service

Radio reception petition Signatures are rolling in for the petition to improve ABC radio reception locally. The petition has been started by Cooma man Brian Curzon, who is fed up with not getting a decent reception at his house, which is only 4km from Cooma. It will be sent to the Member for Eden-Monaro. As reported in last week’s The Monaro Post, Mr Curzon has had numerous contacts with the ABC about the reception, but to date, he has had no luck in improving the

situation. To date, about 60 people have signed the petition, which is at the Fabric Salon, Leading Edge Electronics and Betta Home Living in Cooma. Alternatively, people could contact the Member for Eden-Monaro, Mike Kelly 1300659730 Mike. Kelly.Mp@ – ABC Corporate Affairs Ph. 1300139994 email :Corporate_ Att.

began under her guidance and she then handed the reins over to the community.” Mayor of Cooma Monaro Shire Council, Dean Lynch says that he is sad but also worried to see the service end. “They have delivered a lot of services and filled a lot of gaps right across the Monaro and they will definitely be missed. It will be interesting to see if the new system put in by Medicare local will be as effective at meeting the needs of the community. “It’s sad because it’s another example of regional areas not being seen as being as important as metropolitan areas. “I will advocate where I can to ensure that there is no loss of service,” explained Cr Lynch.

Economic development taskforce Wednesday 26 June saw the first meeting of the Economic Development Task Force. The Task Forces’ facilitator, Mr Kim Houghton said “it was great to finally meet the members of the taskforce and I am sure that with the level of enthusiasm shown, we should be able to achieve some great outcomes for the CoomaMonaro Shire.” Mr Houghton gave a presentation to the taskforce members on various aspects of the Cooma-Monaro Shire which included current demographics on population growth, population shift and the future projections. “This sort of information is critical for members to understand so they are able to

formulate informed plans for the future of the Shire”, Mr Houghton said. The Taskforce members were surprised at some of the data findings presented. Cooma-Monaro Shire Mayor, Mr Dean Lynch, who chaired the first meeting said “it was great to have everyone there with the one common goal which is the future prosperity of the Shire”. Task force members are seeking feedback from local businesses and members of the public regarding practical and positive suggestions to encourage jobs and prosperity. The Taskforce is expected to meet again 24 July.

Les Percival retiring after 36 years of teaching After five and a half years as principal of Cooma North Public School and 36 years of teaching, Les Percival is retiring and taking some much needed long service leave prior to his retirement. Last Friday there were tears in everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes as students, parents and teachers farewelled the much-loved Principal. On behalf of the school, he was presented with a special scrapbook of memories by the youngest student, Taylor-Grace Robertson, 4, and the oldest, Jake Mason, 13. It was clear that the staff of Cooma North Public School were adamant that Mr Percival would stay. The office staff even went to the trouble of barricading him inside his office with reflex paper and cricket stumps.

But Mr Percival has big plans for his retirement and the ski slopes in his sights. He is hoping his retirement will be filled with skiing, bushwalking, travel and spending time with his family. But despite this he says that he will really miss Cooma North Public School and he will miss teaching. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have loved my years at Cooma North, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great school community and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filled with a wonderful cohesive staff. I have some fantastic memories at this school,â&#x20AC;? he said. There are definitely some quirks when it comes to being a teacher; Mr Percival described one such occasion on a school camp at Cooba Sport and Education Centre. The year five and six students were sent off on small off-road buggies around a course while the teachers were given larger and faster buggies. The two teachers supervising were Les and Chris Clarke, the school chaplain. Les took the first turn and was able to just avoid a huge mud puddle at the top of the course, when he returned he told Chris to go as fast as he could around the course reassuring him that there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any tricky obstacles. Of course Chris returned just as Les had expected, covered from top to bottom in mud but Les can recall that

Les Percival now on leave pending retirement. Chris still wiped the seat for him for his next turn. Mr Percival said that these events are part of the thrills that come with being a teacher. In his time as a teacher he has been able to see many children pass through school and says that part of the joy of teaching is watching them grow up and move onto bigger and better things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know where Cooma North kids are going to turn up, both Torah Bright and Ramone Cooper (Olympic gold medallists) are Cooma North kids. It gives you a lot of happiness to catch up with old students and find out what their journeys have been.â&#x20AC;? Although he has taught at many schools all over NSW,


Msr Percival admits to having a very strong affiliation to Cooma North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school just has a good vibe, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud because I can take a new parent around on a tour of the school and walk into any classroom at any time of the day and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a positive experience. At our school the positives outweigh the negatives,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Chances are the students of Cooma North Public School havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the last of Mr p Percival just yet as he plans to return as a e can. relief teacher when he ths For the next 12 months Deborah Horton will be e acting as principal while Mr Percival takes hiss leave.

At the end of July Cooma Monaro Shire Council will be saying goodbye to Director of Engineering, David Byrne after 19 years in the job. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious that his professionalism and knowledge will be sorely missed at council by his co-workers and by the community. Mr Byrne came to Cooma in 1994 when he took up what was to be a five-year contract with the Cooma Shire Council, after spending two-years at Tamworth City Council. But 19 years later he has been through four, five-year contracts and still loves Cooma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At first my wife Kathy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure about staying after we had 40 frosts in a row on our first winter but we soon realised that Cooma is a great little community and a fantastic place to bring up our two children Amanda and Bec.â&#x20AC;? Over the past 19 years Mr Byrne has seen though some amazing projects and has definitely ensured that Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads, water, waste water, recreation and emergency management are up to the highest standard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being an engineer in a rural community gave me a variety of challenges that always maintained an interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Engineering is a great career as you are able to see physical achievements and improvements to infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will miss the challenge of trying to find resources to meet the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations and particularly in an

executive team that covers all council services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have worked with a great bunch of people, whether that be outdoor workers, senior staff or councillors. As Director you are only as good as the team that you work with and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a credit to staff in the organisation that work hard for the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately there is a stigma attached to council of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leaning on the shovelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to realise or appreciate is that our outdoor staff often work through cold winter nights to get water supply repairs done so that people can wake up and have a shower or they clear roads on weekends after storms.â&#x20AC;? Although Mr Byrne wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a part of Cooma Monaro Shire Council anymore he is adamant that he will continue to play a large part in the Cooma community after his retirement. As well as getting more involved in the community Mr Byrne hopes to do some travelling, renovating and spending time with family in between. Mr Byrne feels proud of his achievements whilst in the job such as providing a new wastewater scheme for Cooma valued at $15m and having facilities in the town such as the swimming pool, showground and irrigated sports fields that are at the envy of many councils our size. Despite this he feels he has unfinished business with seeing through a drought

secure water supply for Nimmitabel. He says that it has always been a prospect for him and council is confident that they have found a solution but environmental challenges have made it hard and very costly. Mayor of Cooma Monaro Shire Council, Dean Lynch said that Mr Byrne will be sorely missed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I formed a pretty good friendship with David over the years, when I became Mayor he was somewhat of a mentor to me. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area that will definitely be missed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last six years he has developed a new strategy with rural roads. Over the last six months I no longer receive calls from the community complaining about the roads but instead I have been receiving calls praising the quality of them,â&#x20AC;? Cr Lynch explained. Mr Byrne is very knowledgeable and has brought a broad understanding of both local and state issues into his job. On top of being the director for engineering, Mr Byrne has also been the Secretary for South East Australian Transport Strategy Inc for 15 years as well as being on the executive committee of the New South Wales Water Directorate for 13 years. We wish Mr Byrne all the best with his endeavours and congratulate him on all

that he has achieved in our community over the last 19 years.

Boco Rock Wind Farm construction to start Continental Wind Partners (CWP) has announced construction of the first phase of the Boco Rock Wind Farm is set to commence in the third quarter of 2013. Stage one of the project comprises 67 turbines totalling 113 MW, spread over 13 properties. A power line will be constructed as part of the project to connect the wind farm to the Essential Energy owned lines at Steeple Flat. CWP Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Managing Director, Alex Hewitt said â&#x20AC;&#x153;$350m of funding is now secured and we can move forward with the construction of Boco Rock, our first Australian wind farm.â&#x20AC;? Through the joint venture with Wind Prospect, the project will be managed on behalf of Thai-listed Electricity Generating Public Company Limited (EGCO). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The WPCWP team which developed the project will continue as asset managers for EGCO.â&#x20AC;&#x153; Construction of the Boco Rock Wind Farm is expected to be completed by early 2015, with power being delivered to the

grid from end 2014. Boco Rock Wind Farm stage one will provide renewable power for the equivalent of 40,000 homes across NSW and offset approximately 300,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year. The General Electric (GE)-Downer consortium will deliver the full engineering, procurement and construction for stage one of the project. GE will supply and commission 58, 1.7MW and 9, 1.6MW wind turbine generators. With each blade extending 50 metres and an overall height of 130 m (equivalent to 33 stories) WPCWPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Head of Development, Ed Mounsey said â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be working closely with EGCO and the community to make sure the wind farm is a model project. Details relating to timing of construction activities will be disseminated in the coming weeks through the recently established Community Consultative Committee (CCC), project website, local media and Council. The company has produced a Community Information Plan which it will employ prior

to construction commencing to keep the community up to date with activities. The newly established Boco Rock Wind Farm CCC provides a great forum to get together with representatives of the community, to share information about the project in an open manner.â&#x20AC;? The committee comprises representatives from the local community, Cooma Monaro Shire and Bombala Council. Mr Mounsey is also on the committee. In order to maximise benefits to local businesses the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;contractorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; page of the project website (www.bocorockwindfarm. is still available for interested parties to register their details. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I again encourage all those parties that have already made contact with us to re-register their interest through our website to ensure we maintain accurate and up to date recordsâ&#x20AC;?, Mr Mounsey concluded.

Community helps Zac win Better World grant The dream of Cooma woman Robyn Went to help her threeyear-old brain injured grandson from Canberra receive five months of conductive education therapy has come true thanks to a $5,000 Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World grant. Robyn submitted her dream for her grandson Zac, in the May round of the Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World competition, which helps people realise their dream for a better world by offering $5,000 grants to Australian-based causes. Robyn said she entered the Sunsuper Dreams competition to give Zac the opportunity to continue with the therapy he requires due to his brain injury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A month after his second birthday Zac acquired a brain injury in tragic circumstances,

leaving him unable to walk, talk or undertake any basic motor skills, up until then he had reached all the appropriate milestones for a toddler,â&#x20AC;? said Robyn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zac spent three months in hospital and was discharged from hospital with a poor prognosis. However his parents were determined to give him a chance and embarked on an intense and very expensive program of therapies which cost in excess of $2,000 a month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sadly, due to the lack of government resources, 90 per cent of Zacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s therapy is selffunded so family and friends have gladly carried the costs. As Zacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mum cares for him full-time, she has been unable to return to work so this grant will take the pressure off the

family. Zac currently has speech, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and chiropractic sessions along with swimming, early intervention classes, conductive education and just for a bit of fun he goes to Gymbaroo with his baby brother

Max. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress in the last 12 months has been truly amazing, he now commando crawls and sits unaided; he is starting to master the walker and he feeds himself, however his speech is yet to come. It is the intensity

and frequency of the treatment that has brought him this far and the Sunsuper grant will pay for a further five months of conductive education therapy.â&#x20AC;? Robyn thanks all those who voted for Zac, enabling him to win the grant.

The Local Government Amendment (Early Intervention) Act 2013, which commenced on 25 June 2013, puts in place a new approach for addressing dysfunctional and poor performance in NSW local Councils. This new Act follows recent amendments made by the Local Government Amendment (Conduct) Act 2012, including the new Model Code of Conduct and Procedures (Model Code), which targets individual Councillors for non- performance. For rate payerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information, the new Act amends the principal Local Government Act 1993. It extends, amongst other key matters, the Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authority to suspend whole Councils for up to three (3) months, with a possible extension of three (3) months; if the Minister reasonably believes that the appointment of an interim administrator is necessary to improve or restore the proper or effective functioning of a Council. This may be further extended by the Minister to include the appointment of Commissioners to hold a public inquiry, at councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost, relating to a recurring problem with the administration of a Council. Among other things, The Act also gives the Minister stronger information gathering powers, as well as powers to issue Performance Improvement Orders (PIOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s). A key change is that Councils will now be accountable to the Minister as well as residents and ratepayers. The Minister may also appoint a temporary advisor to assist and monitor the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compliance with a PIO. The Act also contains other changes designed to incorporate governance transparency and accountability to the public. Its key feature is the enhancement of the existing powers of investigation and public inquiry and the new role of the Chief Executive of Local Government under delegated authority.

A history of politics



Saint Kevin replaced John upon the throne, And came to power with policies “me too”, He tried to run the country on his own, And put us really deeply in the poo.


Finally the ski resorts have something to smile about – in the form of bout 40cm of new, natural snow over the weekend. Mother Nature has stepped in in time for the school holidays. Well done, old girl! There have been some horrid accidents in the US and Canada over the weekend, with plane and train crashes. The Postman read where one of the air crash victims may have survived falling out of the sky, only to be run over by a rescue truck. If that is in fact correct, then it seems when one’s time is up, one’s time is well and truly UP! Good news locally though, with Robyn Went’s efforts to win a grant for her grandson Zac, successful. The success would not have come if local people hadn’t voted for Zac. Well done all. The Postman would still like to know when our Federal election is going to be held. Like many Australians he is getting sick of the politicing that’s going on, at home and overseas. At least if the election campaign was officially started, we could be sure the goings-on at present, which look a lot like a campaign, aren’t being paid for by the taxpayer. Cynical old Postman believes in transparency, not glib weasel words which say or mean very little. This Sunday is a good opportunity for all of us to take our old analogue TVs and computer monitors to the Cooma landfill to hand them in for recycling – for FREE! Ahh, yes, the old analogue TV – the one that picked up good reception with a pair of rabbit ears – unlike the digital version which may or may not wish to receive a particular channel, literally depending on how the wind is blowing.


Some might call that progress…

He even made his true believers squirm, As our savings everywhere he wildly threw, He made us nearly bankrupt in one term, When the Labor party normally takes two. Julia came too late to fix the mess, As she taxes us to fill the empty purse, Her antics are just causing more distress, And the situation’s quickly getting worse.

But then I think we really can agree, Our reputation has not suffered harm, As far as all our foreign friends can see, We’re still a giant quarry and a farm. but now, They’ve recycled rhetorical Rudd, Although he’s a well proven dud, Even he must confess, That his party’s a mess, And will come down to earth with a thud. The Caucus is on a wild ride, Trying to stem the enveloping tide, Some compare Caucus with cactus, But that’s not good practice, “Cause cactus has its pricks all on the outside. ----- To be continued. Noel Carter Cooma.

Riposte Lisa Ashurst Over the last few months I have been re-acquainting myself with the joys of having the place to myself, now that Twin I has moved out to be closer to the university, and I have to admit I’d forgotten just how laid back single living can be. The last time I had a place to myself was in my single girl days in Sydney (when I had no idea just how good I had it) yet here I am now discovering a whole new appreciation for the freedom of being the only bod in the place. It’s almost decadent in a way because I set my own meal times, bed times, hog the remote, eat all the lollies and can spend as many hours in the bathroom as I want. I can do all this because I have the house to myself. I can also listen to whatever music I want. This last one may not sound like a biggie but my kids would turn terrible colours at the mere mention of Bob Dylan and get martyred looks over Joe Cocker and Jethro Tull. This was not because I failed to try and educate them musically, it was because their musical appreciation had become seriously contaminated by some of the shrieking cacophonies they preferred during their teens. Fortunately they seem to be over that now but still look pained at

the mention of Bob Dylan which is why it’s so nice that they have moved out… Because I like the guy and tend to play his CDs. But what worries me about all this is whether it means I have become selfish. Have I? Does getting all excited about a whole packet of M&Ms to myself or sitting back to watch a string of lifestyle programs on the telly (with no one complaining about it in the background because they are missing The Simpsons) or eating cereal for dinner on those times I don’t feel like cooking mean I’m becoming a bit too used to pleasing myself? On the other hand, is revelling and doing my own thing such a bad thing? Well gosh, I hope not! Of course, all of the above is not to say I don’t look forward to the kids popping home for a visit because I really do! We sit up ‘til all hours and talk, play scrabble, watch ridiculous TV programs and laugh ourselves silly at them and generally have a really great time, but they’re no sooner out the door and I’m back to my sole resident self; the one that listens to Bob, Joe and Jethro while scoffing the lollies. Hmmm. I may need a nice long soak in the bath to think about this. Not like anyone’s waiting on the bathroom (Yo!).

WilderQuest is visiting Jindabyne The award winning WilderQuest is visiting Jindabyne as part of a large stand featuring this interactive web game and iPad App developed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service. Experience WilderQuest at the Snowy Region Visitor Centre from 8.30am to 5pm from Saturday, June 29, to Sunday, July 21. Initiatives like WilderQuest support the community to protect and enjoy a healthy environment. WilderQuest is a fun and educational program that children are drawn to and enjoy. It recreates nature accurately, so children learn while having fun and it encourages children to explore and play outside in nature. The web-based game features five unique environments, each with a set of tools and six fun games to help children explore. The WilderQuest app is a quick pick-up-and-play game, where players take pictures of animals to unlock information about them. The

app has two environments and is home to 18 animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WilderQuest is partly inspired by the Richard Louv book Last child in the woods that initiated the term, Nature Deficit Disorder,â&#x20AC;? NPWS Discovery Coordinator Dan Nicholls said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Louv said that in an increasingly urban and risk-averse community, many children are missing the opportunity to play in nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the aims of WilderQuest is to spark an interest in nature, prompting children and their families to visit and explore natural areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children play the web-based game, earn rewards and are provided with opportunities to get involved in WilderQuest activities run in NSW national parks.â&#x20AC;? WilderQuest activities are available during the school holidays across NSW. Details are online at http:// Whats-On/wilderquest .

Mad Hatters theme for Cooma Relay For Life Mad Hatters is the key theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cooma Relay for Life event on October 26-27 at Cooma Showground. This is a fun theme attached to an important health message. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity for Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locals to dress it up whilst raising much needed funds that support critical cancer research, local support services, education and prevention programs! There will be festivities over the weekend that will include entertainment, dancing and market stalls. Free health checks, games for the kids, and top tips on living a cancer smart life to prevent this dreadful disease also feature. The top five cancers that affect people in our local Cooma region are prostate cancer, bowel cancer, melanoma, breast cancer and lung cancer. About 33 people from Cooma are diagnosed each year. Many more people are affected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We offer new ways of living that are cancer smart. We know that these lifestyle changes are not always easy, changing habits of a lifetime can be challenging,â&#x20AC;?

Community Relations Coordinator, Cancer Council, Sarah Flynn, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being physically active for at least 30 minutes a day, enjoying a balanced diet rich in vegetables and fruit, and maintaining a healthy weight are ways we can effectively reduce our risk.â&#x20AC;? Co-Chair of the organising committee, Kristy Harvey, said Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Relay for Life committee is looking forward to sprucing it up this year, introducing flair in the cancer smart initiatives that may help prevent at least a few cancers in the community. Relay For Life is a fun weekend, a community fundraising event where teams of family, friends, cancer survivors and workmates take turns to walk or run around a local track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people fancy dress, tag team, do the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;run walkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and just generally have a great timeâ&#x20AC;? said Kristy. As the community event gets larger each year, so too does the energy within the crowd. The event is open to the public; children, adults, everyone is invited to come along and enjoy the fun, music and market stalls. Get in early with your team registration now and catch the early bird special of $15 per person. Register online at http://relay.cancercouncil. c o m . a u / 2 0 1 3 / cooma_2013.

Draft LEP endorsed by Council Snowy River Shire Council last week supported a new Local Environmental Plan for Snowy River Shire. The Draft Local Environmental Plan 2013 (Draft LEP 2013) will now be sent to the Minister for Planning & Infrastructure to be legally made and will hopefully come into effect later this year. The new Plan puts Council on a level playing field with Councils across NSW who are bringing in new consistently formatted local environmental plans. The new Plan helps to simplify and make consistent rules for development for communities across the State. The new Draft LEP 2013 gives the community of Snowy River one plan which sets the rules for development and aims to protect the heritage, environment and scenic landscapes of our Shire. The LEP ensures development occurs in suitable places and is assessed for social, environmental and economic impacts. Generally the controls are very similar to what we currently have. New release areas have been introduced around Jindabyne and Berridale consistent with Councils strategic growth plans. The community have played an important role in shaping the plan. The ideas and feedback of the community is appreciated and has improved the plan and will help to set the future direction of strategic planning in Snowy River Shire. With the Plan being finalised with the Department of Planning & Infrastructure before coming into effect later this year, Council will focus on a new Development Control Plan to sit alongside the LEP and provide the detailed requirements for development. Council will also be working on future strategic planning to continually improve and update plans to support growth and change in the Shire in line with community expectations.




More than 10,000 Australians served ed with Bomber Command, a highly trained me band of elite flyers who undertook some d of the most dangerous operations of World War II. They flew raid after raid over France and Germany knowing that the odds were against them. Stretched to breaking point, nearly 3500 died in the air. Their bravery in extreme circumstances has barely been recognised. Peter Rees traces the extraordinary achievements of these young aviators. He tells their hair-raising stories of battle action and life on the ground. And he recounts how, when they returned to Australia, they were greeted as Jap dodgers and accused of 'hiding in England while we were doing it tough'. Exciting, compelling and full of life, Lancaster Men is a powerful tribute to these forgotten Australian heroes of World War II. This is a book as compelling, as full of life and exciting as Desert Boys and The Other Anzacs.

Schoolkids Bonus arrives The second installment of the Federal Government’s Schoolkids Bonus started arriving in bank accounts last week, helping families across the region meet back-to-school costs. Member for Eden-Monaro Dr Mike Kelly said 150 families in Bombala Shire, 650 families in CoomaMonaro Shire and 450 families in Snowy River Shire would receive the bonus from Thursday, July 4 - eligible families will receive $205 for each child in primary school and $410 for each child in high school. “The Schoolkids Bonus helps lighten the load for local families, and will hit bank accounts in time for parents to buy back-to-school items ahead of Term 3,” Dr Kelly said. “This money helps parents buy uniforms, shoes, school books and stationery, as well as meet other costs like school excursions, music lessons and sports registration fees.” This week’s installment builds on the first Schoolkids Bonus payment in January. “The Schoolkids Bonus exemplfies our Government’s commitment to giving all students the best possible educational facilities and opportunities. It builds on the $102million we have put into improving school infrastructure across EdenMonaro, and the targeted investments we have made in low socio-economic schools. “We are already seeing the huge benefits of these programs in student outcomes locally, and this will be amplified by the National Plan for School Improvement.” Families receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A, as well as young people in school receiving Youth Allowance, and others receiving certain income support or veterans’ payments are eligible for the Schoolkids Bonus. For more information, visit schoolkidsbonus or ‘like’ the Australian Families Facebook page.






CleanOut is a FREE service for the safe disposal of a range of common household chemicals, many of which could cause harm if not disposed of correctly. In addition, many of these materials can be recycled or reused, so not only are you helping to reduce waste and pollution; you are also helping in resource recovery efforts. Last year Cooma-Monaro Shire Council had over one hundred user/participants of the service and collected 8,167 kilos of unwanted hazardous chemical waste, the most common items collected were, lead acid batteries, propane gas cylinders, paints and pesticides. A great result in minimising the risk to the environment and community by reducing the instances of illegal dumping and accidental poisoning.

Old time dinner dance The members of the Cooma Hospital Auxiliary have claimed the date! Friday July 26 for an Old Time Dinner Dance to be held at the Cooma Bowling Club. The evening will start with a traditional Christmas dinner 7pm for 7.30pm and music will be provided by the Happy Wanderers. Tickets are available at the Cooma Visitors Centre at $35pp. There will be lucky prizes during the evening, also a raffle and a hundred club. With funds donated by St George Bank, the auxiliary reprinted a cookery book, which was first printed in 1930. The book is rather historical as it has some very old recipes and the names of those who submitted recipes; also interesting advertisements of the 1930’s sponsoring the recipe pages. There will be limited copies of the book for sale on the evening. The auxiliary are raising funds to provide the Cooma Hospital with 29 new over-bed tables which are badly needed as the existing tables are more

than 30 years old and are timeworn and well past their use by date. The tables will cost approximately $7,975.00 and will complement the bedside cabinets recently purchased and donated to the hospital by the auxiliary. The over bed tables will be easy grip and spring loaded and height adjustable on modern casters and will be very patient and staff friendly. If you enjoy old time dancing or just love old time music then keep Friday July 26 free for a very enjoyable evening and also help provide the Cooma Hospital with the new equipment so as to make patients more comfortable during their stay in hospital. The Cooma Hospital Auxiliary are a small group who provide much needed equipment for our hospital and the meet on the second Thursday of every month at 2pm in the Education Centre at Cooma Hospital. New member’s ladies or gentlemen are very welcome to join the Hospital Auxiliary.

CWA Facts Day in Cooma State CWA President, Mrs Tanya Cameron along with the State Secretary, Mrs Jocelyn Cameron visited Cooma to present a FACTs Day to members of the CWA Monaro Group on Monday June 24. They were joined by State Treasurer, Mrs Kaye Anderson who is a well-known local resident. Representatives came from the Southern Tablelands and Far South Coast travelled to take the opportunity meet with the CWA Executive and their fellow members. These FACTs days give members the chance to ask questions about meeting procedures and other ways to run their branches more effectively. They are also a chance to meet the CWA Executives and put forward their concerns in an informal and friendly forum. Questions including GST queries, conflict resolution, retention of records particularly

Minutes were among those asked and answered. Members all have access to the Procedures Manual but sometimes there are things that are not clearly covered there so that we are all doing the same thing in the same way. This is important in CWA because members can visit other Branches and attend meetings or move to a new branch and immediately feel comfortable in the familiar routine of a meeting. After an enjoyable lunch at Cooma Exservicemen’s Club, the Procedure Manual was checked and all were given a chance to see that their Manuals were up-to-date and superseded information had been removed. The weather was cold and wet so members left early so they could travel in daylight back to their homes.

Gets the job done for the high country

Since his election in 2007, Mike has delivered: $19.2million for education including upgrades to Cooma TAFE, the $1.47m Trade Training Centre at Bombala High and new classrooms, halls and libraries at schools throughout the Monaro.

$21million for new health facilities such as a $1.5m for the Cooma Home and Community Care (HACC) centre, the Jindabyne GP Superclinic which will begin construction in September, and $260,000 for a Bombala surgery.

More than $100m for better infrastructure including $12.9m for Dongwha Timers in Bombala, $7.2m for Council Roads and upgrades to sporting facilities, pools and playgrounds across the region.

A taste of Cooma Tafe for local high school students

Monaro High and St Pats students got a taste of Rural Studies on the day.

Last Wednesday June 26 Jindabyne, St Patâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Monaro High School year 10 students attended the annual Taste of TAFE Day at the Cooma TAFE campus. The purpose of the day was to visit Cooma TAFE for information regarding careers for school leavers and for looking at TAFE delivered Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as part of the subject selection for years 11 and 12. The students were able to choose two subjects that

they may be interested in and learn about what is offered in the subject as well as partake in some practical exercises. The subjects that were offered on the day were child and aged care studies, automotive, welding, information technology, cooking and tourism and hospitality. As always the students reported a very positive day, which gave them an idea as to whether TAFE is the right choice for them next year.

Tax Time 2013

Your 20 Financial 13 Guide

Challenges and opportunities in new financial year The new financial year brings both challenges and opportunities for the business community, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about planning according to Kathy Kelly, director Boyce Chartered Accountants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that businesses are aware of any legislative changes that came into effect on 1 July and have adjusted their systems and processes accordingly,â&#x20AC;? said Kathy. One important change is the increase to the superannuation guarantee charge paid by employers which has risen from 9% to 9.25% with further increases to follow over the coming years. In a win for business, under changes announced in the recent NSW Budget, the payroll tax threshold has been raised from $689,000 to $750,000 effective 1 July 2013. Around 1,300 businesses that would have paid payroll tax in 20132014 will now not be liable for the tax. According to Kathy, many small businesses have taken advantage of the new tax rules introduced in the 2013 year that apply to the purchase of plant and motor vehicles.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the case of plant and equipment small business entities can now claim an immediate deduction for items costing less than $6,500 (GST exclusive),â&#x20AC;? explains Kathy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In regard to motor vehicles, the first $5,000 of the purchase price is deductible in the first year, and the balance over the following few years.â&#x20AC;? These generous concessions were implemented to encourage business investment in tight economic conditions. The popularity of self-managed superannuation funds continues as investors decide to take more control of their retirement savings. The industry though has been wary of the political rumblings about changes to superannuation. Boyce Cooma operates a specialist self-managed superannuation division under the leadership of director Julie Schofield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most recent changes announced by the Government will only impact those funds that are in pension phase and have significant balances,â&#x20AC;? Julie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Superannuation is still the most tax effective way for

people to save for their retirement.â&#x20AC;? Jono Forrest, director Boyce Chartered Accountants notes that 1 July 2013 heralded the introduction of the Federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;future of financial adviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (FOFA) reforms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many financial planning firms are going through some upheaval as they have been forced to move away from commission based fee structures,â&#x20AC;? explains Jono. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boyce Financial Services, the financial planning division of Boyce, has always had a transparent â&#x20AC;&#x153;fee for serviceâ&#x20AC;? model, so clients know upfront what the annual costs will be.â&#x20AC;? Jono says that Boyce Financial Services has been at the forefront in terms of the reforms being implemented in the industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The requirement to act inherently in the best interest of the client is a value that underpins our business.â&#x20AC;? Boyce offers a complete range of accounting and business advisory services to help you maximise your business profit. Contact the friendly team in the Cooma office on 6452 3344.

Tips for rental property deductions What is new this year? The ATO has put together some tips to help investment property owners correctly claim rental property deductions this tax time. This year we are writing to more than 110,000 rental property owners about their entitlements and obligations, to help ensure tax returns are filled in correctly.

are also immediately deductible expenses. What can I claim over a number of years? You can claim other expenses over a number of years, including the cost of depreciating assets, structural improvements and most borrowing costs. Assets that are part of the property such as stoves, refrigerators, air conditioning and hot water systems can be claimed over a number of years as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;decline in valueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; deduction. You may also be able to claim the cost of building, construction and structural improvements made by you or a previous owner as a capital works deduction, for example adding a room or constructing a retaining wall or fence. Another example of expenses that need to be claimed over a number of years is borrowing costs such as stamp duty charged on a mortgage, loan establishment fees and title search fees charged by the lender. If these amounts are less than $100 in total they can be deducted immediately. Otherwise, they are generally deductible over five years or over the term of the loan, whichever is less.

What can I claim straight away? Some expenses may be immediately deductible in the income year in which they are incurred. For example, you may be able to claim an immediate deduction for interest on a loan used to: - purchase a rental property - purchase land to build a rental property - purchase a depreciating asset for the property such as an air conditioner; or to finance renovations or home improvements, like a deck. You can claim a deduction for the costs that you pay to repair and maintain your rental property. For example, replacing part of the guttering or windows What cannot be claimed? damaged in a storm; replacing part of a fence Expenses for which you are not able to claim damaged by a falling tree branch; or repairing an deductions include: electrical appliance. - acquisition and disposal costs of the property Tenancy costs such as the preparation of a lease expenses not actually incurred by you, such as agreement, or costs associated with evicting a tenant

water or electricity charges borne by your tenants - expenses that are not related to the rental of a property, such as expenses connected to your own use of a holiday home that you rent out for part of the year - borrowing expenses or interest on the portion of the loan you use for private purposes like buying a new car. What if I sold a rental property? You may have a capital gain or loss that you will need to include in your tax return if you sold a rental property in the 2012-13 financial year, unless you acquired it before 20 September 1985. You can also make a capital gain or loss from some capital improvements made since 20 September 1985 to a property you acquired before that date. To work out whether you have a capital gain visit for more information. Need help? The ATO website and the Property page have information outlining what you can and cannot claim for your rental property. If you are unclear or have further questions, talk to someone at the ATO about tax deductions for rental properties on 13 28 61.

John Crisp Builder


Finance Consultant Whatever your home loan requirements, let me find the best solution for you!

What is a mortgage broker? Do you charge a fee? Why come to you instead of my bank? Can you see me after business hours?

I have had quite a lot of positive feedback from people who have seen my ad, and a lot of questions! Many people have no idea of what a broker actually does, so I thought I would take the opportunity to explain what I do, and what you can expect if you come to see me. No, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charge you a fee! My income comes from commission paid by the lender, and is fully disclosed to you. The lender doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charge you extra either. I am happy to see you at a time that suits you. Evenings or weekends are fine by appointment. I can help you with any of your home loan needs. If you are looking at buying a new property and need a loan, or if you have an existing loan and want to review it to make sure you are getting the best deal for your circumstances. With so many different lenders, and so many different loans, it is hard to know what will suit you best. When I meet with you, we will have a discussion & I will ask questions to determine what is important to you. It is then my job to sift through the available options, and make a recommendation to you that will suit your individual circumstance. You may have a preference for a particular bank, and I will consider that as well. You may want to stay with them, but it is still worth comparing the options. I can provide you with an in-depth comparison, which will calculate the difference in rates & fees, and give you a comparison over both a long term and short term view. I will explain why I have recommended a particular loan or lender, but the final decision is always yours. I am also your one contact through the whole application process. I gather the information from you, submit the application on-line, and keep a close eye on the progress. Once approved, I go over the loan documents with you to make sure they are correct, and that you understand them. I like to take a total care approach, and will maintain regular contact with my clients to ensure they are happy, and I can handle many servicing issues with the home loan as well. If you need a top up for example, or switch to a fixed loan. I also have contacts that can help them with financial planning, or personal insurance, and can organise a referral to see an expert. So, whatever your situation, it can be worth a call to have a chat and see if I can help you.

Helping YOU Prosper Secrets to not paying Tax There is no doubt we all have to pay Tax, but how much? Pending on what your income is you have a Marginal Tax Rate to go with it. The average person is probably on 37% that means the first 1.8 days of your 5 day working week you are working for free, for the Government. Not to mention GST, Sales Tax etc. As a working Australian, you have two options pay full tax rates or take advantage of Government Tax incentives. I don’t know about you but I would rather use all my hard earned money to go towards my family’s future, rather than throwing it out the window to currently Kevin Rudd and his merry men’s pockets. Why? Because they want us too, the Government want us to put things in place to secure our own future, take control of our own destiny, as they can’t afford to look after us, the Pension is on the way out the door, I heard within 6 years it will end or even earlier. So how do we use our Tax to build wealth? Investing in Property is the answer. It not only provides you tax benefits but it helps you with your financial independence. I am not accountant and cannot give you Tax advice but I would highly recommend you speak to your accountant and discuss how you can save on Tax and build wealth through property. One Government incentive most people don’t know about is the TWVF (Tax Withholding Variation Form), this is great incentive as it allows you to get the yearly tax benefit in your pay each week, fortnight, month whenever you get paid. What this does is help you pay for the property. In most cases now due to the low interest rates and the strong rental income when you look at a pie chart of “who pays?”, the Tenant pays approx. most and the Tax benefit pays the rest, you as the investor actually creates extra income. Guys I cannot emphasise enough how now is a great time to buy property even on the news today (Monday July1) you may have heard how Sydney expects a 19% increase in house prices, Brisbane is also in the hot seat for Growth, Perth is leading the country with Darwin when it comes to Capital cities along with Hobart. All the elements a right for growth, once the election is over look out, don’t wait take action, get in before the herds. If you would like to see how you can do it for maximum returns and save Time Money and Stress, join so many other Snowy Mountains locals and take advantage of my in-home complimentary and with no obligation meeting or just have a chat please do not hesitate to contact me or call 0430 096 823.

Novel technologies warrant further research for flystrike prevention Early trials of two technologies currently prevention alternatives according to conducted early scoping studies using liquid Nitrogen and laser treatments and used to treat human conditions warrant Australian Wool Innovation (AWI). further research as potential flystrike Over the last 18 months, AWI has AWI and researchers have concluded both treatments deserve further investigation. Flystrike prevention is AWI’s Weekly Market Update - Week ending Friday, 5 July 2013 top research priority. Since 2005, AWI has invested $45 million in animal health and welfare research, development and extension (RD&E), including over $26 million on flystrike prevention. The AWI Managing Breech Flystrike Manual is available at or by phoning the AWI Helpline on 1800 070 099. Liquid Nitrogen has shown a proof of concept with the technology demonstrating the potential to reduce wrinkle scores and increase bare area on both the tail and breech of treated animals, with minimal welfare impacts. The trials have been conducted by Steinfort AgVet Pty Ltd, Victoria. Three scoping studies have used liquid Nitrogen in the same way it is used when removing unwanted SERVICE · INFORMATION · MARKETING skin conditions in humans: freezing the treated area which subsequently forms Maxine Blyton Stuart Bennett COOMA 6452 3130 a scar that lifts off over 0418 484 733 0418 634 316 subsequent weeks. The result

is a tightening of the surrounding skin and the reduction in wrinkle. A scoping study using laser treatment to potentially remove wool from around the breech and tail have not yet demonstrated a proof of concept. The research has been conducted by Zeta LLC of Colorado, USA and while not successful to date, the potential this alternative offers warrants further investigation according to AWI. The laser treatment is similar to that used to remove human hair and treated animals have shown minimal discomfort with the application. Meanwhile the latest results for the Sodium Lauryl Sulphate treatment known as SkinTraction® were presented at the AWI R&D update and are available here. The technology has been trialled since 2007 and an application is currently with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority for registration approval which is required before further development into its commercialisation occurs. It is important to note that it takes many years to take a technology from proof of concept to commercialisation and there is often a large attrition rate in doing so. For more information regarding breech flystrike alternatives see the article in the new edition of Beyond the Bale, now available free and online.

New arthritis label claim to increase sheep profits, welfare growth, failure to thrive and reduced breeding capacity,â&#x20AC;? said Dr Farquharson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately this means decreased lambs to market, fewer replacement stock and lesser profits.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ability to vaccinate both the ewe and lamb through this new label claim will increase immunity during high infection risk periods and, as a result, protect the profits of Australian sheep producers.â&#x20AC;? Erypsipelas arthritis can result in fever, followed by hot swollen and painful joints. This can cause stiffness, which eventually leads to the animal becoming lame; a physical condition which is costing Australian sheep producers a staggering $25 million every year. Dr Graham Lean of SBScibus, a provider of science-based research into livestock industries, has completed a cost analysis to determine the financial benefits when using Eryvac in the ewe and lamb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a typical farm, producers in New South Wales can expect to see profits of over $11,000 in fine wool Merino flocks and $16,000 in prime lamb operations when using Eryvacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new dosing regimen,â&#x20AC;? said Dr Lean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Further, producers following the protocol will experience significant labour savings and

can be commended for having a positive impact on animal welfare.â&#x20AC;? Eryvacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new dosing schedule of vaccinating the ewe pre-lambing and the lamb at marking and weaning will mean that Eryvac is given at the same time as vaccines that protect flocks from clostridial diseases and cheesy gland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage sheep producers to work Eryvac lamb vaccinations into their existing preventative health programs, such as the dosing regimen they use for Glanvac B12. Producers should speak to their veterinarian or Zoetis sales representative for more information on the new label claim and the most appropriate vaccination strategy for their property,â&#x20AC;? said Dr Farquharson. About Zoetis Zoetis (z -EH-tis) is the leading animal health company, dedicated to supporting customers and businesses focused on raising and caring for livestock and companion animals. Building on a 60-year history as the animal health business of Pfizer, Zoetis discovers, develops, manufactures and markets veterinary vaccines and medicines, complemented by diagnostic products

and genetic tests and supported by a range of services. The company generated annual revenues of $4.3 billion in 2012. It has more than 9,300 employees worldwide and a local presence in approximately 70 countries, including 29 manufacturing facilities in 11 countries. Its products serve veterinarians, livestock producers and people who raise and care for livestock and companion animals in 120 countries. Zoetis has Australian-based research and manufacturing facilities as well as major presence in the US, Asia and Europe and can deliver quality products with a focus on Australian needs. Zoetis is the largest animal health company in Australia, with a base in Sydney and a large team of field based representatives and veterinarians. For more information, visit au


Eryvac has now been approved for use in lambs, giving New South Wales sheep producers an important boost in their fight against the costly erypsipelas arthritis. Eryvac will give lambs a longer-term defense against the bacteria. Many producers are familiar with the benefits of using Eryvac in ewes to prevent erypsipelas arthritis in their offspring, which should see the lamb protected for the first six to eight weeks of life. Once this passive immunity from the ewe wears off, the lambs become susceptible to erysipelas infection at other critical risk periods such as the postmarking period when wounds are healing and weaning. The new label claim means producers can now further protect their flock by vaccinating lambs at these key stages of development. Camden veterinary consultant and ovine health expert, Dr Bruce Farquharson, is confident that the new dosing regimen will increase productivity through reduced erysipelas infections and fewer lambs displaying long-term lameness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arthritis causes significant production losses for Australian sheep producers through poor weight gain, reduced wool


Best practice animal welfare guide NSW Farmers has welcomed the release of a Producersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Guide to Sheep Husbandry Practices which clearly outlines best practice animal welfare for sheepmeat producers. Chair of the NSW Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sheepmeat Committee James Jackson, who has been involved in the development of the guide, said he was pleased to see the industry taking a proactive stance to ensure that high animal welfare standards are maintained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Australian farmers have some of the highest welfare standards in the world and this guide demonstrates that commitment,â&#x20AC;? Mr Jackson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;NSW Farmers has always encouraged and promoted to our members the need to apply a high standard of animal welfare and

it is fantastic to see the industry taking the lead on this issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This document will be especially useful for people who are entering the industry and wish to understand how things should be done,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It incorporates the latest research into best practice flock management and I call on any groups which are serious about promoting animal welfare to endorse it.â&#x20AC;? The guide has been developed by Meat and Livestock Australia, in conjunction with the Sheepmeat Council of Australia, and is available at Publication-details?pubid=6106. Hard copies are being produced.

Schute Bell wool report The first sale of the new season certainly did not get off to a good start. Losses over both selling days dragged the Northern region indicator down 33 cents for the week. Merino fleece were the worst hit with up to 50 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 60 cent falls registered. In US dollars the market closed the week at its lowest level in over 2â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ years. 29,250 bales were sold nationally for the week with 13.6% passed in. Major buyers included Fox & Lillie and Techwool. All three selling centres are back online next week with 53,512 bales expected for the last sale before the annual three week recess. AWTA testing data backed up yearly Auction offering figures from AWEX with their data indicating a 2.8% rise in the Australian woolclip for the 2012-13 season. Whilst this is only a small rise overall production of wool testing 18.5 micron and finer was up a large 20.5%. No doubt this goes a long way into explaining part of the lack of premiums being paid for the finer types with production rising at a time when demand remains cautious.

CLAIREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CAROUSEL Please phone Claire on 64523137 if you would like to share your social news or community happenings. ITS THE TIME FOR VISITORS! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter and of course there are many visitors to Cooma. We have Sharyn and Michael Stokes with their twin daughters Gabrielle and Eloise here for five days and seeing snow for the first time and enjoying a skiing a lesson at Blue Cow. As they live in Townsville, Queensland what a complete change. Also visiting are recent residents of many years John Kotlash and Vicky Smith, who for the past two years have been working in an Aboriginal Settlement in the Northern Territory teaching School which they found to be a rewarding experience. They are now on their way to New Zealand to take up a teaching post which again will be exciting for them. They enjoyed catching up with friends in Cooma. ROTARY CHANGE OVER DINNER Last Wednesday night saw the Changover dinner

for the Rotary Club of Cooma which attracted 64 guests including members. Richard Lawson was outgoing President and Margaret Hassall the incoming President. President Margaret will have a busy year as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Rotary Club of Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 60th anniversary at the end of the year with many celebrations planned. Steve Mayhew was happy to accept a donation on behalf of Cooma Public School. Guests were entertained by two violinists from the Baptist School and enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Alpine Hotel. We wish the incoming President a very successful year. HERITAGE RAILWAY COOMA A big thanks to all the volunteers that work tirelessly to keep our Heritage Railway operating.

Environment grant for Numeralla Landcare group The Numeralla and District Landcare group has been awarded more than $22,000 by the NSW Government to restore and rehabilitate the local environment, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro has announced. The Rehabilitation and Restoration Program grant will be used to help improve local biodiversity and create a healthier environment for the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Numeralla and District Landcare have been working on a preventative project to stop the Badja River area becoming infested with weeds,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. This grant allows them to continue to remove blackberry, willow and broom weeds and prevent the otherwise pristine catchment from becoming degraded.â&#x20AC;?

NSW Environment Minister Robyn Parker congratulated the Landcare group for their dedication to enhancing the local environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The NSW Government supports communities to look after their own environment because they have local knowledge and a strong connection to their local area,â&#x20AC;? Ms Parker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Environmental Trust grants make it easier for people to get involved in their communities to work together to reduce pollution, waste and all types of environmental degradation. In this round of Rehabilitation and Restoration Program grants, the Trust has awarded more than $4 million dollars to 49 projects across the state. The Trust administers around $7.1 million in contestable grants annually.

Paddy Pallin Junior Cross Country Ski Event Forty-four keen skiers competed in the 55th Paddy Pallin Junior cross country ski event on Saturday June 29. While snow conditions were sparse, a clear day ensured enjoyable skiing for all involved. Participants ranged in age from four to 16 years, with skiers competing over varying distances from 50 metres to five kilometres with multiple laps of the sprint bowl at the Perisher Cross Country Ski Centre. The focus of the Paddy Pallin Juniors is to promote participation in cross country skiing and therefore skiers are only awarded their time taken to complete the course, rather than given a placing. Participation in the event increased by eight per cent from last year, largely due to the support of KAC, NSW XC and the Jindy Kids. The atmosphere during the event was jovial and community spirit was alive and well with competitors cheering and encouraging each other. Prior to the event a valiant snow shovelling effort by parents, volunteers and skiers ensured a skiable track and without this commitment the event would have been difficult to run. The traditional lunch of hot dogs, poppers and fruit were enjoyed by all competitors and helpers post event at the Nordic Shelter, followed by the presentation of certificates and spot prizes. For the final event of the day, the children were organised into teams of varying ages for the jelly snake hunt on skis, with the winning team coming away with a grand total of over 40 jelly snakes to share amongst themselves! For the first time in over a decade Sandra and Tony Greville stepped down from running the event but were on hand to assist with organisation. In addition, Paddy Pallin CEO Tim Pallin, himself a previous Paddy Junior participant, provided invaluable support in continuing the sponsorship of the event. At the presentation, Tim Pallin, Sandra and Tony Greville were

sincerely thanked for their contribution to the event over so many years. The Paddy Pallin Junior organisers extend many thanks to the sponsors, parents and friends who helped make it such a successful and enjoyable day. Special thanks to Paddy Pallin for providing the great spot prizes, hotdogs, drinks and jelly snakes, Perisher Supermarket for providing the bread rolls, Wiffens Canberra for the fruit, the National Parks and Wildlife Service for track packing the snow, Marg, Bruce, Lesley and Peter for accommodating the event at the Nordic Shelter and all of the helpers who assisted with many tasks to ensure the event occurred.

Fast and Female comes to the Snowy!

Fast and Female comes to Perisher on August 3. The Perisher Cross Country trails will again be setting its sights firmly on encouraging girls and women to cross country ski and enjoy the benefits of our wonderful sport. In 2013, there will be two great “girls only” events on the Cross Country Calender aiming to encourage females onto the Perisher XC trails. Fast and Female is a new concept to Australia, which aims to support, motivate, inspire and empower girls between the ages of 9 to 19 to stick with sport and adopt a healthy and outdoor lifestyle. It uses world-class female athletes to act as ambassadors and role models. Developed by gold medal winning Canadian Cross

Country skier – Chandra Crawford – it has an emphasis on cross-country skiing, biathlon and complementary endurosports. Sochi 2014 Skier X Shadow Olympic Team member, Sami Kennedy-Sim who recently led a cross country dry-land Fast and Female session in Sydney said of the participants, “The level of motivation from our Fast and Female participants was great. We talked about how to set goals and manage the process of achieving them. The girls were very receptive and loved hearing about how to manage themselves as female athletes, as well as students and friends. I can’t wait to do it again!” Fast and

Female will include on-snow clinics and activities, lunch and coaching by Australia’s top XC female athletes. Ski de Femme is a long-standing event and is back again in 2013. It is an entertaining and energetic morning on-snow for Femmes of all abilities and levels to learn or practice their cross country skiing or simply go out on the tracks for a ski with other like-minded ladies. Lunch and prizes conclude a session of skiing, socialising and fun. Ski de Femme will be held at the Perisher Cross Country trails on Saturday July 27 at 8.30am followed by Fast and Female on Saturday August 3 at 10.30am.

Stallions trample 2012 premiers 78-nil The Stallions travelled to Narooma on Sunday to take on last year’s premiers. In spring-like conditions the boys were looking forward to a dry track for a change. The game started well for the boys and Jake Schofield was able to cross for two tries in the first 10 minutes. With their tails up and playing with a lot of confidence the games was well out of Narooma’s hands and by half time the score was 30 – nil to the Stallions. First half tries were scored by Matty Salvestro, James Boller and Sam Gilbert crossed for a couple. The coach was pleased with how things were going and asked the boys to not let up in the second half. The main focus was to keep Narooma to zero. The second half could not have started any better with veteran Stallion Steven Russell scooting down the sideline to score a 60 metre try. This really gave the team a lift and as promised they went on with the game and eventually came away victors 78 – nil. The coach was very pleased with their discipline and structure and also when Narooma asked the question in attack they were able to answer these and kept them scoreless. Tries in the second half went to Steven Russell, Todd Williams, Daryl Baines, James Boller, Corey Thomas, Steve Dunn and another double to Sam Gilbert giving him four for the day.

The points for best and fairest went to lbert, Steve Dunn, Sam Dowsett Sam Gilbert, ke Schofield. and Jake This week the game has been moved urday against Cobargo.

Lawn bowls for the hardy on Monaro In freezing conditions 16 bowlers faced up to the starter on Saturday. Geoff Venables and Jack Sajina were drawn against Neil McGregor and Richard Nichols with the game very even for the first few ends, 11-11 on end 11. At that point Geoff and Jack seemed to handle the conditions better than their opponents and dominated over the concluding stages. By mutual arrangement they called it off after 23 ends with Jack and Geoff in front 26-17. Allan Crowe, Keith Goodwin and Margherita Zasso came up against Max Povey, Tony Gray and Olga Jebbink with the latter’s form being much hotter than the weather. After just 14 ends with Olga and her team in front 15-5 it was decided that the interior of the clubhouse was a much better option that on the green. Skip and

Ev Hamilton teamed up with Paul Cannell against Lorraine West, Renate Winckel and Mario Frezza with Mario and Co. in great form and burned up the green to lead 16-4 after 11 ends. At 14 ends it was decided to call it a day and retire to the Clubhouse’s much warmer atmosphere with the score in Mario’s favour 18-5. In slightly improved weather the Handicap Mixed Tripled got started with four first round matches. Judy Locker, Val Clarke and Nelson Wallace received 4½ start from Bob Douglas, Cheryl Meillon and Geoff Venables and started so well it appeared early on that they would not need any start when they held a handy advantage on end thirteen but Geoff’s team scored nine shots over the next four ends to hit the front. Sensing danger, Nelson’s team settled

down and put on 11 shots over the last four ends to win 26 ½- 17. Maureen D’Amico, Mike Mannile and Kevin Jackson were receiving a half a shot start from Fiona Richards, Sergio Roncelli and Don Jarvis and were in front 19 ½-8 after just 10 ends and were never headed to go on and win 30 ½-18. Max Povey, Gwen Caldwell and John Vincent were receiving a one shot start from Wayne Flynn, Dorothy Jackson and Ignazio Mondello and made a shaky start, dropping seven shots on end five and five on end nine from which they were unable to recover with Ignazio’s team going on to win 28-14. Mary Phillips, Jason Thompson and Paul Cannell had to give one shot to Maria Roncelli, Mario Frezza and Peter Marsicano and this was a close match to end 13 with

Paul and Co. leading 12-11. Paul’s team then scored a four and a three to lead 19-11 and it seemed to be shut the gate. Peter, Mario and Maria won four ends to have the scores locked up at 19-19 on end 21, thus requiring an extra end on which Paul’s team got the necessary one shot for a 20-19 win. The matches for places in the semi-finals next Sunday are, (skips names only). Nelson Wallace V John Baldwin Paul Cannell V Jack Sajina Kevin Jackson V Colin Roberson Ignazio Mondello V Olga Jebbink Wednesday bowlers are reminded that they will have their first opportunity to gain points in the Bill Elder Shield on Wednesday July 10. Also the Men’s Club AGM on Sunday July 21 at 10.30 am.

Cats bounce back with strong win over hapless Hogs The Aussie Hotel Cooma Cats have bounced back to winning form with a thumping win over the hapless Harman Hogs in Canberra on Sunday. The final score read: Cooma 18-20-128 defeated Harman 4-7-31. The game was a must win for the Cats who are hoping to see finals football for the first time in two decades this September. The Cats now have eight wins and a draw from 12 matches and are in a titanic battle with Belconnen and ADFA to clinch fifth spot on the AFL Canberra Division Three premiership table. Next week’s game against the second placed ANU side at Snowy Oval will do much to determine the outcome of the Cats’ 2013 premiership campaign. ANU gave the Cats a belting in their round three encounter in Canberra earlier in the season. A win will consolidate the Cats’ position in the top five, while a loss will make it extremely hard for the Cooma side to stay in touch with the competition front runners. All Cooma AFL fans, and anyone interested in local sport, is encouraged to get down to Snowy Oval this Saturday to support the Cats. First bounce is at 1pm.

Right: Kyle Hubert gets a kick away. Below: Adam Asanovski looks to pass the ball.

Cooma Fillies win again The Cooma Fillies have continued their winning streak, taking out the Narooma Devils 52-0 on Sunday.

While they were slow to start in the first half and Narooma nullified Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack, the Fillies hit their stride in the second half and were unstoppable, crossing for seven tries in the back 22 minutes.

AFL 2013 Tipping Competition

The Fillies kicked off to begin the first half and through an early handling error from Narooma, gained possession close to the try line. Kristy Nichols opened the scoring early, running wide and with strength to cross on the flanks, supported convincingly by Tracy Frazer. Narooma defended strongly against Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe attack, and although the Fillies stayed in control during the early stages of the game, their attack moved horizontally and they struggled to penetrate Naroomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence. With 10 minutes gone in the game, Maree Ingram combined with Alicia Bolton and through great support play, Ingram scored under the posts to extend the Fillies lead. Through solid attack from Alana Nichols and the defensive efforts of Kirrily Carberry, the Fillies were able to maintain their field position and work to some set plays. Naroomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack showed promise and with back-toback penalties, they found themselves in good attacking position close to the Fillies line, but miscommunication on the last tackle allowed Anna Steel to steal the uncollected ball and nullify Naroomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opportunity to score. With minutes remaining on the clock, the Ingram sisters combined close to the line, with Patrice switching behind the play-the-ball and picking up sister Monique who ran the perfect line to score. A well-practised conversion from Bolton after the siren took the half time score to 14-0. At half time, the message from Coach Craig Schofield was to work to set plays and to move forwards, rather than sideways, and the Fillies did not disappoint. Jade Lee was back to her

attacking best, breaking through the defence on the second tackle of the opening set and racing through to score, while Kate Schofield converted the try with precision. Bolton and Lee went try-for-try in the following minutes, striding out with flair and lengthening Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead on the scoreboard. Cassandra Pinner carried the ball forward with confidence to maintain Coomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominance, while Georgie Clarke defended with vigour, despite nursing an injured hand. Patrice Ingram managed to shimmy her way through defenders to continue the scoring before the youngsters combined, with Abby Schofield grubbering to the wing from 25m out which allowed Meg Bracher to dive for a try just inches from the sideline. With less than five minutes remaining on the clock, Lee and Bolton were at it again, with Lee scoring a runaway try and Bolton capitalising on a repeat set and disjointed Narooma defence to slide through and round the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scoring out at 52-0. The Fillies improved second half efforts showed skill and mastery in attack and defence, but their shaky first half reinforced the need for consistency in these efforts across the entire game. They take on the Cobargo Eelettes next weekend in what will be a tight contest and an opportunity to build on Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. This week, Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; player went to Anna Steel, 3 points went to Alicia Bolton for her outstanding attack and feisty defence; Kirrily Carberry and Monique Ingram shared 2 points, and 1 point was split between Patrice Ingram, Maree Ingram, Georgie Clarke and Abby Schofield, whose performances were difficult to separate. Cooma Fillies 52 (J. Lee, 3, A. Bolton, 2, P. Ingram, Maree Ingram, Monique Ingram, M. Bracher, K. Nichols; A. Bolton 4/7, K. Schofield, 2/2, J. Lee 0/1) def. Narooma Devils 0.

Locals compete in Newcastle Squash Competition Kailey Tonini From Tuesday June 25 to Thursday 27, both Hayden Smith and I competed in the NSW Combined High Schools Squash Championships in Newcastle. Different regions of NSW competed against each other in both men’s and women’s matches to determine the teams that would proceed to the Squash Tri Series NSW vs. Queensland and New Zealand this coming August. We both represented the South Coast Region, and met many wonderful people. Unfortunately, competition was fierce in the boy’s, with Hayden just missing out on selection. I missed a whole week of school, which, in years 11 and 12, is discouraged unless unavoidable, however with the help of my teachers, I’ve managed to stay relatively up to date. This experience has made me realise how blessed and fortunate I am to live in Cooma, surrounded by wonderful people. There are many people I’d like to thank, including: Col and Sue Langdon of SportsPower Cooma, whose enthusiastic support is greatly appreciated; South Coast manager Mark Bellamy for taking such good care of me and the team; my school teachers for supplying me with the work I’d missed, especially Mrs Alicia Bolton and Miss Anna Steel for their encouragement and coaching, even from a distance, and lifting me up after a tough loss;

Our performance in these matches as well as the individual competition decided whether or not we would make the Under 15’s Girls/Boys team or the Open Girls/ Boys. While Newcastle presented an exciting challenge, an opportunity for new experiences and, most importantly, a slightly warmer environment, there is no place else I would rather be than Cooma. One of the fondest memories I will have of this experience is the support and encouragement of the people around me, so thank you. There was much excitement when my girl’s team placed second in the state, with the winner being the Western Region. I am ecstatic about being chosen for the NSW Open Girls Squash Team, as number 4, and travelling to New Zealand in August for the championships. The coming weeks will be spen spent preparing and improving my performance for the opponents I’ll I’ face in the competition. my friends and family for their wishes of good luck and continued support; and to my parents Nick and Penney Tonini for giving up their time to come watch me play and being so supportive. Regions played each other in both singles and doubles matches, and had players seeded from 1 to 4 (1 being the best), with three girls teams having less than four players, including South Coast.

Cooma Monaro Historic Autombile Club (Cooma Car Club) held its annual general meeting last Monday night, as which two long-serving memebrs were honoured with life membership. They are the third couple to be awarded this honour along with Keith and Vel Montague and Ross and Pauline Johnson. Rogan and Bev have been foundation members since the club’s inception 13 years ago. They have made a huge contribution to all aspects of the club and continue to participate in club events whilst sharing their passion for old cars. Rogan and Bev both say that the award took them both completely by surprise. “It was a huge surprise, we’re both very honoured that the car club thought we were worthy,” said Mrs Corbett.

“We’re both very honoured, we’ve been very energetic car club members since its inception,” said Mr Corbett. “We both love being a part of the car club because of the satisfaction it gives you when you achieve something as a team. It’s so great on a social level, we’re all just really good mates and the cars are the glue that tie it all together,” he explained. The club also elected its executive for the next year, including president Kel Goodman, vice presidents Mick Manthey and Robert Wolfe, secretary Steve Redden, treasurer Les Sutcliffe, bar manager David Vander Plaat, registrars John Evans and Roy Rees, publicity officer Ian Hampton, newsletter writers Jim Appleby and Glynn Pendergast, membership, Peter Longhurst, events co-ordinator Doug Arnold. They are pictured above.

Bev and Rogan Corbett received their Life Membership certificate from outgoing president Mick Manthey.
