Students Study Eclipse

Shades were on at Snowy Mountains Grammar last Wednesday as students observed the eclipse of the sun. Lachlan Porter, Renee Connor, Alex Ball and Nick Tugwell found that eclipse shades are safe, but also make you look cool. Jack Dalby captured this amazing image through Dr. Nelson’s video camera with a solar filter fitted to the lens. See story page 2.

SMGS eclipsed! Last Wednesday morning, Year 12 Physics students at SMGS, along with some other Snowy Mountains Grammar School (SMGS) Aperture members and well-wishers, gathered on the school grounds at 6.30 am to witness a rare solar eclipse. The eclipse was total in Cairns, but partial here. Just before the eclipse was due to begin, clouds covered the Sun. Very thick clouds. As Year 12 enjoyed their barbecue

The Solarscope affords a stunning view of the eclipse, with several large sunspots visible on the surface. breakfast, the chances of seeing the eclipse looked remote. However, at approximately 7.40 am, the clouds amazingly vanished, providing some very tired yet relieved students an excellent view of the eclipse. Students used special eclipse shades to view the eclipse safely, in addition to the Solarscope, which safely projects an image of the Sun onto a white background.

edAlthough the former affords a stunning view of an orange Sun partially covered by the Moon, the latter also reveals incredible detail on the Sun’s surface. Students were able to observe at least seven sunspots, regions on the Sun’s surface where intense magnetic fields reduce convection and effectively reduce surface temperature. These areas appear black against the surrounding

surface, which has an approximate temperature of 5,500 K. The students agreed it was an extraordinary event, and definitely worth getting up early to see. Despite the fact the eclipse was not total, it still invokes a palpable feeling of awe, if just for one moment. A total solar eclipse, one of which occurs in the Sydney region in July, 2028, must truly be a thaumaturgic experience, where one must feel very small

amidst a seemingly endless cosmos, reminding us that our lives are fleeting by comparison. The next total solar eclipse occurs on March 20, 2015, and can be viewed from the Faroe Islands, however, the total solar eclipse occurring on August 21, 2017, will perhaps be the most viewed for a significant time, as it cuts a path directly across the USA.

So, who watched the Solar eclipse? It was so much fun, especially seeing the excitement on the students faces after looking through the telescope. SMCS purchased the appropriate glasses so each person could also view the eclipse directly. The telescope, which had been generously donated to the school, provided extraordinary detail as students watched the Moon track across the sun. Using a special solar filter, they could even see sunspots and the profile of moon craters.

Phil says farewell after 45 years After 45 years of working and dealing with the public, Phil Cottrell from Landmark Bombala and Delegate is retiring. Landmark Bombala has been renamed from Dalgety Australia, Dalgety Winchcombe, Dalgety Winchcombe FGC, Wesfarmers, Wesfarmers Landmark, Landmark Bombala and Delegate, and it is time for Phil to call it a day. Phil will be retiring to the farm at the end of November. “I have enjoyed my years in the Stock and Station Agency business, have met and worked with a lot of great people and made many friends. We have experienced some good years, some hard years, and some bloody hard years, but I have loved

the challenge of working through them with you”. “Matt will take over as manager and Justine will handle the livestock while I sit back on my 600 acres and enjoy retirement”. “I have valued your support, loyalty and friendship very much over the years and hope this continues for Matt, Justin and staff, as they endeavour to provide you and our local community with the same continuing service, as a Landmark Branch”. Retirement is a Journey not a destination.

Retiring agent Phil Cottrell and wife Lisa.

Local solicitor wants court services returned Local solicitor, John Last, has issued a challenge to the NSW Government, local Member John Barilaro and the Attorney General’s Department over the recent relocation of former Registrar at Cooma Court, Brian Donnelly. Mr Last is preparing to make the downgrading of services at Cooma Court an election issue if the services, which he said have been downgraded with Mr Donnelly’s relocation, are not restored. Mr Last has cited a loss of coronial services to the local area as just one implication of the former registrar’s removal from Cooma. He said the downgrading is adversely impacting local people and he is not prepared to tolerate it. In letters to local media last week, Mr Last stated: “I note with great concern that following the forced transfer of Brian Donnelly, the Registrar’s position at Cooma Local Court has been

downgraded, something that the Attorney General’s Department assured the community would not happen. “Our Member of Parliament, John Barilaro also assured the community that he would not support the downgrading of services in our region, yet it has happened. “The downgrading of the Registrar’s position means that highly experienced and qualified candidates who would have applied to come to our community at the proper grading will now not apply for the downgraded position, leaving our community with a lower standard of service that we expect and deserve. We have been advised that coronial services are provided by Cooma Court, however we have also been advised that we should approach the Attorney General’s Department should we wish to have those services returned to Cooma. Who do we believe? “The forced removal of

Registrar Brian Donnelly has been an utter fiasco, driven more by hatred than service or economics. I know this to be a fact. He stood up to bullies, reporting corruption, and his forced transfer is in reprisal for doing so. “Recently he was advised that he is likely to be sacked. It is an expensive fiasco as well - relieving staff are paid almost $1000.00 per week on top of their wages to cover the vacant Registrar’s position. The whole exercise of removing Registrar Donnelly has cost in excess of $150,000.00 and is mounting. “All this to save a few thousand dollars a year, and for the Attorney General’s Department to show what it can and will do to people - and communities - who stand up for themselves. “The community must call these people to account. Only an inquiry by the Public Service Commission into the forced transfer of Registrar Donnelly and the subsequent downgrading of services will reveal the awful truth, and stop other government 76 Commissioner Street departments Friday 23rd November – Tuesday 27th November 2012 from following CLOSED Thursday, Monday & Wednesday. the lead set by the Attorney G e n e r a l ’s Department.

“It is interesting to note that although I briefed the previous Cooma-Monaro Council about this matter they decided to take no action. Evidently they were happy to have the services downgraded. $ 150,000.00 would have gone a long way to repairing the dangerous footpaths in our town. I hope that the new Council may take an interest in this matter as they claim to have the interests of the town and district as part of their strategy. “If you don’t make a stand now, don’t complain when more jobs and services go. Yours faithfully John Last Solicitor, Barrister & Notary”. The Monaro Post has contacted Mr Barilaro’s office for a response but none had been forthcoming at the time of going to press. The Attorney General’s office has stated: “The services currently provided at Cooma Courthouse are consistent with those that were available prior to Mr Donnelly’s departure. The Department is in the process of recruiting a permanent Registrar for Cooma. The new Registrar will also perform the role of Assistant Coroner. There has been significant interest in the role from qualified candidates. The position is currently being occupied by an Acting Registrar/Assistant Coroner.”

Cooma Public School fundraiser General Manager, JOE VESCIO

Over the five years preceding the formation of Council’s Green Team, power consumption reached a maximum in 2007/08 of 2,834 MWh. Since then consumption has declined by almost 12% (largely due to savings in water and sewer operations), while the cost of power has increased by 45% to current figure of approximately $649,000. If Council had continued to use power at the rate of 2007/08 our current bill could have been $727,000 at today's power rates. Installation of solar panels at Jindabyne Sportsground and Berridale Community Hall now bring Council's solar installations to three and together with the wind turbine at Jindabyne Landfill we are beginning to see the benefits. Council will continue to explore ways of both reducing our overall power consumption and making our infrastructure more sustainable. The National Recycling Week Expo was held last Saturday in the Jindabyne Memorial Hall, and organised by our wonderful Waste Education Officer, Margie Ferguson. There was a great range of stalls and activities on show including the Swap Party, weeds stall (including Green Team plant give-away) and Water Wise information respectively, and Barry Everson with Council's new recycling truck was also there for people to check out. Also on display was the fabulous artwork submitted by school children for the School Recycling Artwork competition. Well done to all those involved.

Are you thinking of buying a pool? In NSW, all swimming pools, including inflatable pools, capable of holding 300 mm or more of water, are required by law to have an approved safety fence. Changes have recently been made in regards to rules in relation to pools. These amendments commenced on 29 October 2012. Some of the changes; • Swimming pool owners are required to register their swimming pools on an online register to be provided by the NSW State Government – this is to commence 29 April 2013. • Swimming pool owners will be required to self-assess, and state in the register that, to the best of

their knowledge, their swimming pool complies with the applicable standard when registering their pool – after the register commences and prior to 29 October 2013. • There is a penalty for owners who fail to register a swimming pool (penalty notice amount of $220) – to commence no later than 29 April 2014. • Swimming pool owners will be required to provide a valid swimming pool compliance certificate before being able to sell or lease a property with a pool. • Accredited certifiers under the Building Professional Act 2005 may conduct swimming pool inspection

Kelly vows to fight against electricity privatisation privatisation, it is clear that the only way to protect this important community asset is to vote Labor at the next federal election.” “This is a very important issue for our region and I’m prepared to stand up and fight for the local community to make sure these public assets and everything they deliver are not lost for future generations.” Dr Kelly said. ETU Secretary, Steve Butler, twelcomed Dr Kelly’s support for local workers saying that privatisation will hurt the local community. “What we have seen elsewhere when electricity privatisation occurs is the decimation of regional towns through massive job losses, increases in the number of blackouts and higher electricity prices for everyone,” Mr Butler Said. “A place like Cooma has a lot to lose should privatisation proceed because any likely buyer will already have a well established head office elsewhere meaning they will simply shut down Snowy Hydro’s local head office resulting in the loss of hundreds of skilled jobs. “The fact that Dr Kelly is prepared to stand up and fight for the local community to save Snowy Hydro, the electricity

NAG news for November The November meeting was held on Thursday, November 15 at the Community Centre. Six people attended and seven apologies were received. The following matters were amongst those discussed/decided/reported upon at the monthly meeting: The Old Mill Committee – The design and wording for the Information Cube for the Old Mill is in progress with input having been sought from a number of people. Banner refurbishment – Brian Hart has completed the new banners and they are having ropes attached and will be ready in a few days.

Australia Day Appreciation Certificates – Nominations of persons worthy of the Nimmitabel community’s recognition on Australia Day 2013 should be addressed to the President of NAG (PO Box 26, Nimmitabel NSW 2631) by December 1. Pebblecrete bins – The pebblecrete bins have been moved to the school by Peter Loydell and Steve Ross – thanks were recorded to them for this. The bins will be returned to their final location when painted by the students and will be planted with carpet roses. Additional funding for community projects – an additional $5,000 will be sought from the C-MSC for upgrading the caravan park.

network and the associated community benefits is welcomed. “When governments sell monopolies like the electricity distribution network there is no competition and it is consumers that will be left to pay the price, literally. “South Australia has a completely privatised electricity network and they also have the highest power prices in the country followed closely by Victoria who have also privatised, it just doesn’t add up in so many ways.” “The only way we can stop the

The Member for Eden-Monaro, Dr Mike Kelly has locked in his support for local workers at Snowy Hydro and Essential Energy by declaring that he will fight to maintain public ownership of these important and profitable public assets. In a meeting with members from the Electrical Trades Union (ETU), Dr Kelly said that he has always supported public ownership of Snowy Hydro and the state’s electricity networks. “I have been a long-time supporter of public ownership when it comes to essential services like power generation and distribution, not to mention the many benefits these businesses bring to our local region,” said Dr Kelly. “I struggle to understand why the NSW Government is so determined to sell Snowy Hydro and our electricity network when they provide so much for our community by way of highly skilled jobs, irreplaceable training and apprentice opportunities and money for our local schools, hospitals and roads. “Last week the Gillard Government released the Energy White paper which says ownership is a matter for State Governments and today I am calling on the O’Farrell Government to scrap their plans to sell Snowy Hydro and our electricity network.” “Given that the coalition governments in NSW and Victoria both want to sell Snowy Hydro and given that Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey has flagged the possibility of

Snowliner’s Kimberley experience Sunday rolls around and we say goodbye to Perth as we journey south along the freeway witnessing signs of recent rains. Many of the towns in the southern region end in ‘up’ which is believed to mean meeting place. Morning tea at Bunbury, the third largest city in Western Australia, then on to Busselton for lunch. The 2km wooden jetty at Busselton is the longest in the southern hemisphere a few ventured along this structure before enjoying an ice cream! We then head for the Margaret River area, famous for its wines. Our first stop is at Margaret River Silk Road. This is a new venture which raises silkworms that are exported to Cambodia where the silk is harvested from the cacoons and spun into products which are then sent back to the Silk Road and sold to us lucky tourists. Our hosts gave us a very informative talk before we admired the diverse range of products – many purchases were made. The chocolate factory was visited before stopping at two wineries then making our way to our accommodation in the heart of Margaret River. Breakfast and we are on the road again this time heading to Cape Leeuwin – the most south-westerly mainland point of Australia. The Indian Ocean and Southern Ocean meet at this point and in rough weather I could imagine it a boiling mass of water, our day was very calm and several enjoyed a tour climbing to

the top of the Lighthouse built in 1895. We are now heading east to the Pemberton/Manjimup region and a peaceful lunch was enjoyed at the Diamond Tree Lookout. The tree itself is 51m high and has

At Denmark, no we are not in Europe, there is the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk. This is the nearest most come to the top of trees. The 600m boardwalk is 40 metres high through the canopy of the tingle forest where you can

see trees over 400 years old. From here we continue along the South Coast Highway to Albany our evenings destination. For something different we dine at the Earl of Spencer Historic Inn which has been serving Albany since 1884. The bar is made of solid jarrah and is over 120 years old. The meal was fabulous and compensated for the uphill walk. Before leaving Albany on Tuesday morning we visit the ANZAC Memorial at Mount Clarence. The first and second ANZAC convoys left from Albany so this was the last Australian land seen by many. The first Dawn Service was held at St. John’s Albany

the last sight of land our troops saw of Australia, perhaps we should commemorate them this way every ANZAC Day’. A visit and information session at Mount Romance sandalwood factory was appreciated by many. Sandalwood oil is used in many beauty products - shampoos, lipsticks, makeup and fragrances, to mention a few. In Western Australia there is over 161 million hectares of native Sandalwood making this the largest natural Sandalwood resource in the world. The industry has been regulated since the 1920’s. Each time a tree is harvested 12 seeds are planted - 30-40% of these trees achieve maturity beyond 10 years. We are now heading north

through the wheatbelt areas to Hyden and Wave Rock. Wave Rock is a natural formation that is shaped like a tall breaking ocean wave. The multicoloured granite formation is 14m high and around 110m long – which can give you the feeling of standing near a tsunami. It became famous years ago after a photo won a prize in an international competition, visitors from around the world started arriving at the small town of Hyden wanting to see this unusual formation. And just to top the day off after dinner Rita and Kevin entertained us with their musical talents. A unique collection of lace is on display in Hyden. Over 2,000 items from 1650 to present day. Royal lace, chantilly lace worn by Queen Victoria, a piece of tulle from the Princess of Wales wedding veil are some of the items on display. The collection is thought to be the largest private collection of lace in Australia and many items are in sealed drawers to protect them from decay. Just along from the lace display is another display this time with thousands of toy soldiers. It is time to leave Hyden and we make our way to Ravensthorpe and on the Esperance for lunch at Esperance Bay. After lunch we head north along the CoolgardieEsperance Highway to Norseman. Lawrence and George Sinclair with Jack Alsopp discovered gold in August 1894 when Lawrence’s horse Norse-Man dug up a gold nugget. Thursday has us going to Kalgoorlie for a tour, in particular the Super Pit where you stand on the edge and the massive trucks look like matchbox toys. On our way back to Norseman we pass a coal train with 150 carriages, this eventually passes through Norseman while we are enjoying a drink beside the pool!

Jindabyne senior citzens Christmas Jindabyne and Berridale Lions, in conjunction with Jindabyne Sport & Recreation, are celebrating more than 40 years of hosting past and present Senior Citizen residents of the Snowy River Shire (and their carers) at the much anticipated annual Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch. This will be held at Jindabyne Sport & Rec

dining hall, Sunday December 2, at 12.30pm. From its humble beginnings at the then “new” Memorial Hall in the newly relocated town of Jindabyne 1970, this annual event has grown to approximately 240 guests and their carers and the ongoing success of this event is only possible due to the extremely generous support of the

State Government and many Monaro businesses, sporting and community groups and individuals. The community support is infectious as shown on the faces of Judy Cummins and the local children attending Jindabyne OOHSC as they spend many afternoons making Christmas cards for all of the Senior Citizens

attending (please see attached photos) Want to catch up with old friends, dust off your dance shoes and enjoy fine Christmas fare, but haven’t received your invitation, then please contact the friendly staff at Jindabyne Spot & Rec on (02) 64500200 to confirm your attendance and arrange transport if required.

‘Daughters Of Country’in Cooma Anne Kirkpatrick and Dianne Lindsay will be presenting a combined show at Cooma Ex-Services Club on Sunday November 25 at 3pm. This show will be a real country music treat as both Anne and Dianne hail from what can only be called Australian country music royalty. Anne is the daughter of Slim Dusty and Joy McKean and Dianne is the daughter of Reg Lindsay and Heather McKean. Of course, Anne and Dianne are first cousins and until now have not had the opportunity to do these types of shows together. Both are established multiaward winning artists in their own right.

On the night they will be performing a number of their respective father’s songs and together will present some of their mothers’ songs (The McKean Sisters) as well as presenting their own individual music. The setting for this show is intimate and acoustic and anyone who enjoys true, traditional country music and is interested in our Australian country music history will find this show a mustsee. Tickets are $20 adults and $5 for children 16 years and under. Tickets are available at the club or at the door. For further enquiries phone 0401095306.

A little gift makes a big difference: Operation Santa 2012 Christmas morning without presents under the tree is a sad reality facing many Australian families this Christmas. Through Operation Santa, people can spread Christmas joy to people who may have otherwise gone without by generously donating gifts at Target and Target Country stores across Australia. Each year Target and UnitingCare call on the community to join forces for Operation Santa, and brighten Christmas for thousands of disadvantaged people across Australia. In its 21st year the appeal is once again set to reach children, teenagers and older people across the country, who without the support of the community would not receive a gift this Christmas. This year the operations Santa team is reminding people throughout Australia that ‘a little gift makes a big difference’ because it’s through the generosity of our neighbours that many families and individuals can enjoy the

pleasure of a Christmas gift. In Australia it is estimated more than two million people, one in 10 of whom are children, live in poverty. Thousands of people request support services each day from UnitingCare agencies and this demand always spikes around Christmas. “Operation Santa is a great way for local people to help those in our community who are struggling for a variety of reasons. While we may not know them personally there are many people who need our help” said Church Secretary, UnitingCare local coordinator. How can the community help? Spot the large red Operation Santa tree at any Target or Target Country store, take a gift tag from the tree and donate a gift fro someone in need. You can also purchase gift cards from any Targe checkout. U n i t i n g C a r e representatives will collect the gifts and ensure they are

distributed to those in need in time for Christmas morning. All gifts go to people in the local community where they are donated. “Target is really proud to once again partner with UnitingCare for Operation Santa. The appeal is celebrating its 21st year this Christmas and we are hopeful of our biggest response yet. With over 300 stores across Australia, Target is a part of so many local communities and we understand how great the need is, particularly at Christmas, so we appreciate the amazing support of our customers and the incredible work done by UnitingCare at this time of year”. “We encourage all of our customers to make a big difference to someone else’s Christmas by putting a gift, no matter how big or small, under the Operation Santa tree at their local Target store”, said Dene Rogers, Target Managing Director. Thanks to the

generosity of Australians, 81,463 gifts and $149,590 in gift cards were donated and distributed last year. We hope to collect 100,000 gifts and $200,000 of gift cards this Christmas for those in need. Operation Santa runs from Thursday 8 November to Sunday 23 December 2012.

Monaro girls love St Schols

Woman of the Year awards

With no Catholic high school on their home ground that caters for students beyond Year 10, it’s no surprise that a grand total of 22 students from the Monaro region have completed their secondary education at St Scholastica’s College at Glebe over the past nine years - and the Monaro-Schols story is still being written. Forget the horror stories of boarding school life from the dim and distant past: our boarder students are too savvy for that kind of thing and will happily tell you that life at their Good Samaritan College is pretty good. Of course, there’s no place like home but, in that regard, Schols is just about as good as it gets. A caring boarding community, comfortable accommodation and good food, a broad curriculum that includes creative arts and vocational training, excellent academic staff, access to technology and tutors onsite and a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities off site, all offer our boarders the chance to be the best they can be. The first boarders at St Scholastica’s were accepted in 1905 and were accommodated in part of Toxteth House, the original house on the site that the Good Samaritan Sisters purchased in 1901, moving from the Pitt St site that was resumed for Central Railway Station. The

Member for Monaro John Barilaro is encouraging the local community to nominate women for the 2013 NSW Women of the Year Awards. John Barilaro said there are three categories that are open for nominations from the public: 1. The Premier’s Woman of the Year Award, for leadership and excellence 2. The People’s Choice Community Hero Award, for work performed in the service of the community 3. A new award category, the Male Champion of Change sponsored by Deloitte (open only to men). “The opportunity to nominate women from within the local community allows us to recognise the important work being done by women in our patch,” Mr Barilaro said. “This year there is also a new category, the Male Champion of Change award which

Sisters promptly built a new school at Glebe (for the grand price of 2,000 pounds – they were the days!) and, in response to the numbers seeking enrolment in the days when boarding for country students was a foregone conclusion, a purpose built, fashionably art deco boarding house attached to Toxteth House was opened in 1941. Modernised and extensively refurbished over the years, this building was and will continue to be home to generations of Schols boarding students. And now 2013 will usher in a new era of boarding at Schols on Open Day (Sunday 10 March) when the College opens a new, modern facility to complement the existing Boarding house. The style of the buildings may vary but the Good Samaritan values and the recognition that sound relationships are fundamental to success and happiness in life, remain constant.

On the initiative of a group of families from the Monaro district, an unusual opportunity to learn more about the College will be available to local families on the evening of Friday 23 November at 6.30pm when College Principal, Loretto Richardson, and Boarding Director, Annie Barnett, will hold an information session at SMEC, 220-226 Sharp St Cooma. Meet some of the current and ex-students of St Scholastica’s, get a real flavour of the College and consider whether Schols might be the right fit for your daughter. For those who can’t make it in November, take a closer look at the College via the video on our website (www.scholastica.nsw. or in person on Open Day 2013 on Sunday 10 March, 11am-3pm. Enquiries to 02 9660 2622. St Scholastica’s School new boarding facility.

recognises the role that men play in brokering change for women. “If you know a woman or man who you think should be recognised for their leadership and contribution, please make a nomination,” Mr Barilaro said nominations for these three award categories are invited from individuals, groups or organisations from across the community. “As the local Member for Monaro I will be nominating a woman from our community for a separate award category, the Local Woman of the Year Award. “I am honoured to have the difficult task of nominating one woman from within the electorate. This person will receive an invitation to attend the awards ceremony at Parliament House with the Premier

and will be featured in the 2013 Women of the Year Honour Roll. “With so many local people worthy of such an award, the choice will be a difficult one.” The winners in all four award categories will be announced at a reception hosted by the NSW Premier on Thursday March 7, 2013 at Parliament House, on the eve of International Women’s Day. Nominations can be made now at: www. w o m e n . n s w. g o v. a u Nominations close on Wednesday 5 December 2012. Pictured, Member for Monaro John Barilaro.

Blatantly Honest Property Investment 7 Golden Keys to Real Freedom I ran an event on the weekend with 9 expert speakers on how to Unlock YOUR Wealth with the 7 Golden Keys to Real Freedom. All the speakers had their own expert knowledge to give the audience but one common trend weather it was about Fun, Health, Wealth or Happiness. We all have one life and one chance and we need to get the most out of our life! And when it comes to securing your financial future this is a major problem for most Australian’s. Why? How I was presented it was how I see it. Australians have a “She’ll be right mate“ attitude. Now I am as Aussie as they come and I love our laid back nature, but this does hold many people back from taking care of their future. The fact is most people are heading for troubled waters based on information provided by Australian Bureau of Statistics 92% of people will be struggling through their retirement years or simply not retiring! But if you take charge of your life and utilise the 7 Golden Keys you will secure your future. In brief please find the 7 Golden keys below. 1) You need to know WHAT you actually want today and in the future, when you want to stop work. But an crucial driver is WHY you want it? When you know this you know what is your personal desired outcome. 2) WHERE ARE YOU NOW? Be blatantly honest with yourself. What is your current bad debt, what is your current cost of living, your income and what do you have in place for your future. 3) Have peak energy and health, without good health you cannot get the most out of your life and enjoy every day with passion. 4) Have the Million dollar mindset. Which really means you need to believe you can do it, as many people are held back by pre conditioning and fear. But the only way to fix that is educating yourself. 5) Cash Flow is King – To gain wealth it is not rocket science you just need income to buy assets. Therefore we all need to maximise our income to increase cash flow and buy more assets. 6) Invest on Invest – When you invest wisely and continue to invest you get the power of compounding growth. 7) Love Your life. When you are doing everything you can to love life you seem to just get what you want in life, being positive creates a life where you can Live YOUR Dream! If you would like a personal complimentary strategy session and obligation free please contact myself or call 0430 096 823 Have a great day!

Council’s Social plan is now being updated

Calling for Expressions of Interest from Community Members Interested in Joining Us to Update the Plan Council’s Social Plan 2013- 2016 will identify key social issues facing the Shire, summarise local needs, and inform Council’s strategies on social justice. The plan will build on consultations undertaken as part of Snowy River Shire’s Community Strategic Plan, and will look at data emerging from the 2011 Census.

Council would like community members with experience, an interest, and/ or expertise in social issues to join us in this process. It is important that we hear from a wide range of voices – including those people experiencing disadvantage. Those that have an interest in a particular social group (e.g. young people, people with a

disability) and/or an issue (such as housing or transport) are also invited to get involved. We are calling for expressions of interest from community members that would like to join Council’s Social Planning Committee. There will be a range of additional opportunities to have your say over the next couple of months, and

we encourage all interested community members to get in contact with us and see how they can contribute. Please call Anne Cleverley, Community and Cultural Development, on 6451 1500 for more information and/or to register your interest. Read more about Snowy River Shire Council’s latest.

Cooma Cup, proves a very popular event for bocce players from near and far. A massive weekend of Bocce was had at this year’s event, which was held at the Cooma Bocce Sporting club (CBSC inc.), Ti Tree racecourse. Teams came from Sydney, Melbourne, Queanbeyan / ACT and Cooma to compete for the prestige and pleasure of winning the Cooma Cup Shield. Twenty -three teams nominated to attend, but only 16 could be accepted for the competition with big prize money at stake. The draw saw two groups of eight teams play off over seven rounds, of which the top four from each group progress to play the semi-finals. The top two teams from the Semifinals then do battle in the final for top honor. This year’s winner being Club Italia from Sydney who defeated a very strong Istra Social Club No 1 Team who up until the final had not been beaten. The end score of 7 – 1 did not reflect the closeness of the match, at one point Istra’s George Milich was going head to head with veteran thrower Gianni Olitch, to remove each others team Bocce to

gain advantage and point. Club Italia’s point making was exceptional especially Nella Chiandotto. In a Statement after the match Nella said “I purposely trained extra hard to improve my point making and it’s paid off”. She feels she played the best game of her life and the excitement showed after the win with a smile from ear to ear. Istra where noble in defeat and even though some questions where asked about technicalities, they congratulated the opposition on a mighty fine game. Other place getters where, 3rd Marconi club, team 1 from Sydney, 4th Casa D’Abruzzo Club from Melbourne, 5th Queanbeyan / ACT Team 2, 6th Freccia Azzurra Club – Melbourne, 7th Cooma Team 1 and 8th place went to Istra Social Club team 2 of Sydney. Well done to the local team of M. Zasso, M. Zorzit, L. Stefani and S. Roncelli and to our neighbours Queanbeyan / ACT team of A. Forner, P. Dalla Costa, T, Guliemin and J. Savle to finish in the top eight. Presentations where made with the kind help of Doug O’Donnell, president of the Cooma Ex-Servicemens Club, a

major sponsor and true supporter of the CBSC inc for many years, to teams and individuals who excelled throughout the year. Many thanks where given not only to the teams participating but to the many volunteers who help during the year, especially the ladies in the kitchen, A. Stefani, L. Balzano, P. Revelant and G. Pevere. A very special thanks to P. Stefani and E. Pevere who also stepped up big time to look after meals whilst having to do their own jobs for the club. The president also thanked the Committee for all their hard work in organising and staging this weekend event and the many others so far this year. The dinner dance was praised by all and said to have been one of our best. On a final note thanks to our sponsors for their

generous support, they being John Poletto Painting, Cooma ExServicemens Club, Cooma furnishing Co, GIO, Kinross Inn, South East Tile & Bathroom Centre, Cooma Sand & Concrete, Bombala St Surgery Sharp St Surgery, Pevere Families, Signvan.

Jess Sergo and Elizabeth Barnes, (pictured) supported by the Cooma Cats AFL Club, played for the Tuggeranong Hawks Youth Girls Team in the competition which saw teams from Canberra, Wagga, Sydney and the Illawara come together for a celebration of AFL Youth Girls football. AFL Youth Girls football is for teenage girls aged 13-18 years of age and is full contact, competitive AFL football for females.

The Cooma Cats are planning on fielding a Youth Girls team in the Canberra AFL competition next year and are looking for interested girls to join Jess and Elizabeth in what is one of the fastest growing female participation sports in Australia. The AFL Canberra Youth Girls competition runs in throughout winter with games played on a Sunday morning. Jess has a strong background in local rugby union with the Cooma Red Devils while Elizabeth has been playing for the Calwell Swans in the Canberra AFL junior competition for a number of years. Both girls enjoyed the carnival on Saturday which saw

Mick Mayhew, Tony Shaw and Richard Nichols set up an early 18/4 lead against Colin Peuker, John Vincent and Jim Lumsden and withstood a late challenge from the latter to win 22/14. Max Povey and Ken Bowden also started well against Simon Schoon and Tony Grey to lead 13/4 and went on to win 23/14. Only 10 social bowlers on Sunday with Charlie Mugridge, Allan Crowe and Richard Nichols having an early battle with Simon Schoon, Max Povey and Paul Cannell, but six shots over three ends to Richard’s team and weather threatening they called it quits with Richard and Co ahead 23/15. Dave McDonald and Keith Goodwin had a dream start against Judy McDonald and Ken Bowden in winning 10 of the first 11 ends and went on to win 36/15. In major singles, Sergio Roncelli was 22/9 in front of Bob Lahy after 20 ends. Bob then dominated for the next 11 ends to lead 228/25. In winning five of the next six ends, Sergio won the encounter 31/29. Jack Sajina and Ignazio Mondello had a neck and neck struggle for 12 ends when Jack started to draw head and eventually win 34/18. Monaro Clubs Challenge was completed at Nimmitabel on Saturday with Cooma playing Adaminaby and Jindabyne playing Nimmitabel. Geoff Venables and Mel Storta got Cooma off to a good start in winning the pairs against A Madden and G Clarke, two sets to nil. Cooma’s M Frezza, P Cannell and J Schoon shared the sets with L Theobold, J Ruzic and P Dahl but lost the tie-breaker. In the fours, the Adaminaby team of G Dahl, A Ranta, C Gales and D Pastor drew both sets with P Marsicano, M Buckley, P Caldwell and Peter Scroeder, but lost the tie-breaker. Cooma seven points, Adaminaby three. Jindabyne’ B Skelly and C Demczuk

The triples went to Nimmitabel’s F Richards, B Corby and P Evans, winning over K Maynard, L Whitehead and M Griffith in both sets. G Hall, J Smith, D McDonald and D Turner won both sets for Jindabyne against M McGinn, G Hayes, R Blyton and M Murphy in the fours. Jindabyne eight points, Nimmitabel four. The final point score for the competition put Cooma in top spot on 27 points, followed by Jindabyne 19, Adaminaby 18 and Nimmitabel 7. That wraps up the Club’s challenge for tihs year. First round matches in district mixed pairs were played last Sunday with the following results: D & K Jackson won 13 of the first 15 ends against D & R Russell to win 30/10; C Meillon and G Venables were equally impressive in their 24/9 win over M Siddle and B Seears. In a closer encounter, G & M D’Amico withstood a late challenge from R Wainwright and V Clark to win 25/21. D Buckley (subbing for M Williams) and P Marsciano took an early lead against Steven and Sheery Seears and did not let up to win 20/12, C & H Peuker had an up and down start against U Roberson and I Mondello before steadying to win 21/18.

Back to Zero wins Adaminaby Cup A large crowd gathered in warm conditions to witness Back To Zero ($3fav) ridden by Carl Spry, prove to strong for his rivals in last Saturday’s 1400 metre Snowgoose Hotel Motel Adaminaby Cup. Trained in Canberra by Barbara Joseph and Paul Jones, Back to Zero was taken to the lead before the turn and was never threatened at any stage crossing the line 1 3/4 lengths in front of Gelderbelle trained by Benny Wynen at Kaluru and Chosen Time from Canberra in third. Back To Zero, who is raced by Peter Joseph, Peter Reynolds, Michael Walcott, Kevin and Jenny Casey and Yass locals Ben Donoghue and Gary Waters, will now likely line up in the Cooma Cup in a fortnight. The runner up, Gelderbelle, who despite being a nine year old and a 97 start veteran, is racing very consistently is also being aimed at a start in the Cooma Cup. The success started early in the program for the Joseph and Jones stable when Lady Zizou ($2.60) won Race 1, the “Meekatharra” Maiden Plate over 1000 metres. Ridden by Carl Spry, Lady Zizou, who is raced by Peter Joseph, Mrs DJ, Mick and Justin O’Malley, prevailed by a ½ length from the ($2.40) favourite Yambulla, raced by Bombala identities Norm and Wendy Wilton. Flea’s Mate finished third.

Race 2 was the Balydon Ag Class 1 Hcp of 1000 metres and saw six horses go to the starting gates. hen the gates opened, the favourite Solo Kalimnah ($3.20), ridden by Cark Spry, bounced to the lead from barrier one and held the rail and the lead for a lot of the journey in a keenly contested battle. However, in what proved to be the first of a winning double for Wagga Wagga trainer Trevor Sutherland, Part Expectation, ridden by Kayla Cross, scored by a short head margin from Hansard with Double Night back in third placing. Solo Kalimnah, trained at Cooma, finished fourth beaten 1 1/2 lengths. The Snowy Hydro Benchmark 45 Hcp over 1300 metres saw some great local rivalry with the Jindabyne based Georgie Boucher and Kevin Byrne producing Short Stay ($3.60) and The Guvnor ($12) respectively in the seven horse field. However there was no local victory as the Canberra, Garth Worthington, trained As Sweet As ($4) prevailed by ¾ length from Korilla Park ($3.60 fav) with Shades of Justice trained at Traralgon in Victoria coming in third. Short Stay finished fourth and along with The Guvner will take benefit from the run to be primed for the Cooma Cup meeting.

The Reynella Rides & Adaminaby Store Maiden Hcp of 1400 metres was Race 4 and saw a very keenly contested finish between two local horses. With Carl Spry aboard, Iron Belle ($7), trained at Cooma for Trevor and Belinda Coyne and Gina McConkey, took the lead

Iron Belle will be aimed at the 20th Sundowners Cup. The last race of the day, the Snowy River Shire Council Benchmark 46 Hcp is always a great spectacle as it is commenced in front of the crowd at the 1700 metre point. As the gates opened the lead

before the turn and led until being overtaken in the last 50 metres by the Georgie Boucher trained Praise ($5) ridden by Kristen Smart. Having only her fourth start, Iron Belle rallied and came again but there was a long head margin in favour of Praise on the line. King Mini was third 2 ½ lengths further behind. Praise is raced by the trainer and Michael Flanagan from Jindabyne and will press on to a 1600 metre race at Cooma whilst

was keenly contested by the five runners but the jockey aboard Olympian was keen to show the way. As the battle continued up front in a race with plenty of tempo, Marview ($2.38 fav), raced by Keith Bottom from Cooma and trained by Trevor Sutherland, was ridden patiently at the rear by apprentice Kayla Cross. As the field entered the straight it appeared as though it would be Trevor Sutherland’s other runner,


Perfect Pursuit, that would take the race but a great ride by Cross saw Marview, a seven-year-old mare, grab the lead in the last few strides to win by a ½ length margin. Rapacount from Queanbeyan was back in third placing. Marview has now won 11 races, a great achievement when racing is so competitive. Another of her recent victories was the Picnic Cup at Young. The day saw the Joseph and Jones training partnership and Trevor Sutherland both with winning doubles whilst jockey Carl Spry rode a winning treble. Spry only moved to Canberra from Darwin earlier in the week to ride for the Joseph and Jones stable on a temporary basis whilst evaluating whether a permanent relocation could be lucrative for him. The Adaminaby Jockey Club would like to thank the sponsors and anyone else who helped to make Saturday the success that it was. The Cooma Cup and Cooma Sundowners Cup meeting is on December 1 at the T-Tree Racecourse at Cooma. Pre-paid tickets are available at Snowy Camping World and the Cooma Visitors Centre.

postman calls

The Postman never ceases to me amazed at what we do to our language. For example, while shopping in one of Cooma’s supermarkets recently, The Postman spied a vegetable called “beanettes”. Closer examination showed this unusual item to be green beans – pre-wrapped. A quick shufti around the fruit and veg section failed to find any accompanying spudettes, sproutettes or pumpkinettes, although there were some sad little baby corns incarcerated in plastic. But beanettes – why add the suffix to what were, plain and simple, green beans? One’s thing for sure, there is no ‘billette’ to accompany purchases at the checkout. We know we are living on the Monaro and it’s getting close to Christmas because…? Because the temperature has plummeted again and we once again contemplate the possibility of a white Christmas. A good excuse for extra lashings of eggnog and brandy custard.. Last week had the town full of people from all over the place for the SEATS meeting and also a regional roadshow. Hopefully both groups were impressed with the old town. The Postman is keen to pursue with the roadshow, training opportunities which seem to be drying up all over at present. While businesses are encouraged to take on trainees and apprentices, it’s a tad difficult if training for these positions isn’t available. Think printing and floristry, for example. And for fellow kamikaze shoppers – there are now only 35 days til Christmas, which means 34 3/4 shopping days. Not yet time to panic! Perhaps this Christmas we will be exchanging beanies and mittens, instead of air cons and thongs?

Questions for council Editor, Just a couple of questions for the Council to answer which are of public interest . Since the Council put them in the high priority basis - not roads or footpaths - but a new logo and the extra water meter readings they have now voted through. 1. How much will it cost Council to replace logos on its vehicle fleet ? 2. How much will it cost to put new logos on staff uniforms ? 3. How much will it cost to replace letterheads on its documents? 4. And finally -replacing the old logo with a new one - what are the benefits that Council sees for its Ratepayers and what proof they have to show its not a waste of Ratepayers money ? On the second question, regarding the third meter reading, which will cost Council an extra $10,000 per year for

that extra reading because they want to follow the best practice advisable in local government. This will cost the Ratepayers more money and mean higher rents for the battlers looking for low cost accomodation. What I would like to know is - if the Government has produced this document surely there must be another document that covers things like - Efficiency, Waste and bad management practices . If there is such a document could they please tell us so that the Ratepayers can feel assured that they are not paying money just on job creation but on affordable services. Thank You, I look forward to Council’s reply. George Ilitch Cooma

Thanks from Wrap with Love Ediitor, Last week I had a phone call from Wrap with Love Head Office Sydney advising me that the four boxes containing 148 rugs had arrived at the warehouse in Alexandria thanks to Marco Revelant of Monaro Freight. Thanks to the people who made this possible, such as Barbara Shands and Monaro Fibre Crafters, Elsie Rushton, Ruth Dahl, Beryl Snowden, Jan Gardiner, Suzanne Broder and the many dedicated people who knit or crochet rugs or squares and leave them in a plastic bag (with no name on the bag) at the Library or Vinnies.

Thanks also to Lorraine at Cooma Power Equipment for supplying the boxes, and Jenny and John Evans and the staff at Snowliners for collecting and sealing the boxes ready for transport. Thank you all for your compassion and concern. You can rest assured that your rugs will be keeping people warm during the winter overseas. Betty Mattner Cooma – Monaro Convenor for Wrap with Love Inc..
