Mona honoured for teddies There are unsung heroes scattered throughout the Monaro and Mona Rowe is one of them. Mona Rowe is a tiny 86-year-old woman but it’s obvious she has a very big heart. One of Jerangle’s most well known residents, Mrs Rowe was the last owner and operator of the Jerangle Post Office, which closed in 1984. But perhaps her greatest achievement is one that has gone unacknowledged for six years. Mrs Rowe recently received a certificate from the Sydney Adventist Hospital for her support of the Operation Open Heart program. Each year around


this time Mrs Rowe sits and knits woollen teddy bears for the children overseas who will be receiving open heart surgery as part of the Sydney Adventist Hospitals program. Over the six years Mrs Rowe has been contributing to the program she has knitted well over 200 bears. Not only this but she continued supplying the program with bears even while she suffered through throat cancer treatment a few years ago. Operation Open Heart was established in 1986 by a small group of hospital medical and nursing staff who travelled to Tonga, indignant that life saving cardiac procedures, easily accessible in Australia, were not available in the South Pacific.

Request for toilets At Cooma-Monaro Shire Council’s last meeting, resident Jeanette Nassar requested council consider building toilets in Norris Park. She said many celebrations take place in the park and it is dangerous, especially for young children and for the elderly and disabled persons in wheel chairs, to cross the road to use the toilet facilities in Centennial Park. The Mayor advised that a toilet facility for Norris Park is part of the CBD upgrade plan and will be

pastime and its very rewarding being able to give the bears to children who are not only going through major surgery but who also are very poor and have very little compared to us,” she explained. The bears provide comfort to children when they need it the most. During a two-week stay, a team can provide lifechanging surgery to between 25 and 50 patients suffering from congenital or rheumatic heart disease. Without Operation Open Heart many of these patients would not have survived, and at best most would not be able to lead the active and productive lives that they now have. “I hope it puts a big smile on their faces to

receive the bears.” Mrs Rowe is also a part of the Country Women’s Association who have been contributing to the program through making pillows for the patients to use as well as supplying the teams with clothes to take to the communities that they visit. However Mrs Rowe doesn’t forget her local community and gives her bears as well as crochet rugs and sets of baby booties and hats to local associations such as MEIS and Cooma Hospital. It is clear that Mona Rowe has an amazing attitude to people and to giving and she should be acknowledged for the selfless work that she has been doing for the past six years.

NSW has a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;responsible budgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Member for Monaro John Barilaro, pictured, has labelled this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State Budget as responsible while focusing on core services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the past two years the NSW Liberals & Nationals have been focused on fixing the mess left behind by Labor,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By living within our means we have been able to reduce debt, while at the same time investing in those areas where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most needed.â&#x20AC;? ROADSIn the Monaro $42.3 million has been allocated in 2013-2014 for road works including upgrades on the Monaro, Kings and Snowy Mountains Highway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Following the release of the Kings Highway Safety Review, this funding will go a long way in delivering important upgrades aimed at lowering crash and casualty rates on the Kings Highway,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. The budget also allocates $5.6million for local councils to maintain local roads. In Queanbeyan the budget delivers $1.3 million dollars in 2013-2014 towards Queanbeyan City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $4million road package. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The is the next instalment in my election commitment to fund a $4million road package for the planning and engineering studies of number of road projects in Queanbeyan,â&#x20AC;? Mr Barilaro said. $5.2 million has been appropriated for the Bemboka Bridge widening. EDUCATIONThe NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing investment in education also forms a key part of this Budget, with $13.95 billion allocated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an increase of $524 million on last year. Students and teachers in the Monaro will benefit from a $2.5 million capital works program earmarked for a number of schools within the electorate, including two joint funding projects for Queanbeyan Public School and Sutton Public School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The schools to receive funding through the capital works program are Queanbeyan South Public School, Bombala High School, Captains Flat Public School, Queanbeyan West Public School, Braidwood Central School, Bredbo Public School and Monaro High School,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. The centrepiece of the education budget is an additional $5 billion over six years to implement the National Education Reform Agreement (Gonski agreement) between the NSW Government and the Commonwealth. The budget has also set aside funding for Cooma TAFE Carpentry and Joinery Workshop, demonstrating the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to regional vocational training investment. Funding has been increased for the school zone flashing lights program from $19.5 million to $32.5 million, ensuring every school in the Monaro Electorate has a set of flashing lights by December 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m delighted weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to extend this successful program as flashing lights are one of the most effective tools we have to slow down motorists near schools,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. HOME BUYERSProspective new home buyers in the region are also winners in the budget.


The NSW Government is extending incentives for first home buyers, encouraging prospective home owners to purchase a new house with a $15,000 inducement. Mr Barilaro said the NSW Government is going all out to entice Canberrans to purchase homes across the border and provide a boost to the local economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want Canberra region home buyers think new and think NSW,â&#x20AC;? Mr Barilaro said. DISABILITY SERVICESDisabled people, families and carers in the Monaro Electorate will be pleased to learn that the budget will allocate $2.76 billion to Ageing and Disability Services, including $440 million to deliver the third year of Stronger Together 2 and $585 million over three years for the launch of the National Disability and Insurance Scheme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The NSW Government is committed to a service system that increases choice and control for people with disability in the Monaro,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro.

TOURISMThe Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Farrell/Stoner Government will invest almost $20 million in regional tourism and events as part of the 2013-2014 budget. Tourism Snowy Mountains will share in $11.1 million dollars to help promote the unique tourism product of the region; it will also share in $10.5m for product development and marketing promotions of the region. GOVERNMENT SERVICESOne million dollars has been allocated for the upgrade for the Service NSW Centre in Queanbeyan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These one-stop-shops will allow people to renew their registration, purchase a national parks pass and buy a fishing licence all at the one place,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite the financial challenges facing the state, this budget shows the NSW Government is delivering on its promises to improve services for the people of NSW, invest in critical infrastructure across NSW, and protect the vulnerable,â&#x20AC;? Mr Barilaro said.



BUSINESSBusinesses in the Monaro will save an average of more than $3000 a year per employee, with the NSW Government to raise the threshold for payroll tax in a bid to create thousands of jobs. Creating further relief for businesses, the Jobs Action Plan payroll tax rebate, in which businesses can apply for a rebate for employing new staff, has been extended to June 20, 2015.

Bobeyan Road closure postponed NSW Government funding for Cooma-Monaro and Snowy River Shire Councils have postponed a planned closure of Bobeyan Road until May 2014. The issues was discussed at the June 11 meeting of Cooma-Moanro Shire Council, following a public meeting in Adaminaby the previous week. That meeting, chaired by Mayor Dean Lynch, attracted about 60 people. Mayor Lynch said Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director of Engineering, David Byrne, did a great job presenting the issues and also answering questions from concerned residents. The consensus was that closing the bridge

during winter would greatly affect local business with the preferred option being late September. Council will continue to undertake maintenance on the sub-structure of the bridge, while water levels in the river allow this to be done, to ensure a load limit of 14Tonne can be maintained. Additional traffic management work will also be undertaken on the approaches to the bridge during this time to ensure compliance with the load and speed limits currently in place. At the meeting, residents accepted that a bridge closure for a period of two weeks, at some point in time, was acceptable to undertake the work in an economic manner, and the additional cost of constructing a bypass during the closure period was unreasonable. Although residents at this meeting requested Council to consider a closure in late September 2013 that would minimise the impact on business and residents, an assessment indicates that September 2013 is not ideal due to planned flow releases into the river. The future timing of a road closure will therefore need to be rescheduled to meet construction and community requirements. Council will advise residents in due course of the most appropriate planned closure dates ensuring there is adequate time to plan for the effects of the closure. rected All enquiries can be directed ire to Cooma-Monaro Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Works Managerr on 0439 061 354 or Snowy River Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manager of Operations on 0408 692 624.

Jacob Suthern recognised in NSW Parliament The outstanding effort of an eight-year-old boy from Cooma who was instrumental in securing much needed funds for a local charity organisation has been mentioned in NSW Parliament. In NSW Parliament last Thursday, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro shared the extraordinary story of Jacob Suthern, the Cooma Public School student who has raised in excess of $5,000 and was appointed as the YMCA swim-a-thon ambassador for 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the tender age of eight years, Jacob set out to swim four laps of the Olympic sized pool to raise a humble $100 in a sponsored swima-thon to help fund swimming lessons for the disabled,â&#x20AC;? said Mr Barilaro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one could have imagined, not even Jacob himself that his efforts would snowball into something far greater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jacob swam 24 laps of the pool and raised over $1,000. Jacob was named the second highest fundraiser in NSW and the seventh highest individual fundraiser in the country in 2012.â&#x20AC;?

This year Jacob competed in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YMCA Swim-athon with the support of his fellow students and school principle Stephen Mayhew who personally pledged to swim 300 metres and attempt to raise $1,000 at the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jacob swam his little heart out, clocking up 2.5km in the pool and raising over $5,000 making him the highest national fundraiser for 2013,â&#x20AC;? said Mr

Barilaro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more proud of Jacob; all the money from his mighty swim will stay in the local community to expand the Yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Learn-toSwim program for people with a disability.â&#x20AC;? Nationwide more than $123,000 was raised through the swim-a-thon, close to 1000 participants in 25 pools across NSW took part.

Jacob Suthern is pictured at the launch of the swimathon in Cooma last year, with YMCA Fundraising Manager, Damien Mandla and Member for Monaro, John Barilaro.

Snowy science hub Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner has announced NSW Government funding of $2000 to the Snowy region to establish a NSW Regional Science Hub and support events for National Science Week (10-18 August). Mr Stoner said the grant formalises collaboration between the Snowy River Shire Council, the Lions Club of Jindabyne and local schools, transforming informal networks into a Regional Science Hub. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When communities work together, funding of this nature goes a long way and can produce great outcomes, in this case a series of youth-led science talks, workshops and site visits to showcase of science in the region and create learning pathways.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A key benefit of having a Regional Science Hubs is to strengthen the many disparate science communication networks in NSW and build stronger community engagement with science by encouraging people to work collaboratively,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he added. Mr Stoner said that the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investment in Regional Science Hubs is driven by its commitment to the Commonwealth Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inspiring Australia strategy that aims to build a strong, open relationship between science and society. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We also contribute funds to support a NSW Manager for the Inspiring Australia program whose role is to build opportunities for more people to engage with science and its relevance to everyday life,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. The NSW Regional Science Grants Program has allocated $40,000 across eight regions, sparking new community science partnerships that will deliver lively regional events across NSW and add to the

eclectic mix of science engagement activity across Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If we make science fun and accessible, we will encourage greater appreciation of why investing in science is critical to our lives and Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Stoner said. Funded initiatives were selected from 36 applications with the aim of delivering inspirational science initiatives in the community during National Science Week and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It has been a particularly competitive grant round, with strong competition. I commend all applicants for their efforts in establishing partnerships and submitting such creative and professional applications.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I look forward to seeing how each of these collaborations inspires greater appreciation of science and its importance to everyday life â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he added.

Believed to be the first motor car to visit Cooma, this 1904 Panhard Levasser was driven to Kiandra and Yarrangobily Caves by Mark Foy, accompanied by his family. On the return journey, the car broke down and Ryall the blacksmith decided, as it was made of metal, he could repair it. He had never seen a car before and successfully pulled it apart, but he had no idea how to repair the motor so the dismantled car was sent back to Sydney on the train. Thanks to Neville Locker for this contribution.


PROMOTING A HEALTHY, SMOKE FREE COMMUNITY Council has received a number of queries from some business and general community members relating to the recent changes in the laws that have come into effect on smoke free outdoor areas. In answer to these queries, the following clarification is submitted. There are several types of legislative changes that the NSW State Government brought into existence in response to emerging evidence on the impact of passive and direct cigarette smoking on air quality in both indoor premises and outdoor locations such as swimming pools, alfresco cafes, parks, etc.

Training the trainer workshop Following the recent successful Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) workshop held at the Multi Function Centre in Cooma on Wednesday June 5, an expression of interest was extended for 40 people to attend an ABCD â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Train the Trainerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Workshop, which was held at the Werri-Nina Centre in Cooma last Monday June 17. The 40 participants were from a range of community service organisations and groups, across all sectors, along with service groups and volunteer groups and members, from across the three Monaro shires. The workshop was facilitated by Dee Brooks and Mike Green. Mike has written developed and implemented inclusion projects and workshops throughout North America, Asia and Australia. Mike and Dee are affiliated with Jody Kretzmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Green with attendees at the Train the Trainer workshop. and John McKnightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Asset Based Community Development Institute, North Western University, USA. Mike is also affiliated with the Toronto â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reminding people that they have everything right here Summer Institute and the Down Under Institute. Dee Brooks is a passionate and highly energetic trainer, and giving a strong example on how to organise it,â&#x20AC;? Mr Green keynote speaker and event facilitator who currently works with explained. The group had the chance to access the wisdom of Mrs the Family Action Centre based at the University of Newcastle. The ABCD workshops are certified by the ABCD Institute Brooks and Mr Green but also use their own skills and in Chicago, USA. Asset based community development is a knowledge to come up with ideas to build a more inclusive powerful approach to community development that will focus community. At the end of the day the group was able to also efforts on discovering and mobilizing the resources that are brainstorm ideas about how to move into action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that the workshop has finished those who attended already present in the community. These workshops work towards enhancing and enriching communities by working with have learning circles and groups which they can access and hopefully they will talk to other people in the community social innovators within the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These workshops are about people coming together in a and share what they learnt from the workshop. Cooma local community to do together what they cannot do alone. has a lot to be proud of and hopefully people will be able to Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about moving from a consumer society to one based on implement what they have learnt from the workshop into their citizenship and remembering and tapping into the wisdom communities,â&#x20AC;? said Mrs Brooks. within the community.

Minor accidents Police reported two minor motor vehicle accidents in the past week. Last Tuesday June 18, between 11.30am and 12pm a single vehicle rolled off the road as a result of driver error. There were no major injuries to the driver or to the passenger. Another motor vehicle accident occurred last Tuesday morning at approximately 8.15 near Chakola when two

cars collided with each other on the highway. The incident was the result of one car pulling out in front of the other from a driveway and claimed to have not seen the other car due to thick fog. There were no major injuries, the airbag was deployed in the car travelling on the highway and one car needed towing. Fire Rescue and Ambulance also attended both scenes as a precaution.

The key Acts in question are The Tobacco Legislation Amendment Act 2012 and its regulations, which saw an amendment to the Smoke free Environment Act 2000 to ban smoking in the following outdoor places: From 7 January 2013: tXJUIJONFUSFTPGDIJMESFOhTQMBZ equipment in outdoor public places; tQVCMJDTXJNNJOHQPPMTTQFDUBUPSBSFBTBU sports fields or other recreational areas for sporting events; tQVCMJDUSBOTQPSUTUPQTBOEUBYJSBOLT tXJUIJONFUSFTPGBQFEFTUSJBOBDDFTTQPJOU to a public building; and From 2015 involving all tDPNNFSDJBMPVUEPPSEJOJOHBSFBT The new laws also prohibit smoking on NSW Health grounds, such as hospitals, community health services and ambulance stations. NSW Health is currently responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Smoke Free Environment Act 2000, not Councils. NSW Health tobacco compliance officers are authorised to enforce bans on smoking and issue substantive fines for breaches. Some city and larger regional Councils have introduced their own policies that prohibit smoking in settings not covered by the State wide legislation, such as beaches etc, and are enforced by local Council rangers. Cooma-Monaro Shire Council has no smoke free policy as yet, but works in collaboration with NSW Health through promoting a healthy community through Councils strategic vision and the community strategic plan.

Well, that was a weekend and a half of rugby union….good thing 50th anniversaries only roll around twice a century. How nice to see some of those old faces back in town for the weekend. It was a treat to see Perry Sidney back on the field again – he is a rugby tragic through and through. One of the more moving moments for the Red Devils celebrations (apart form the bone-crunching tackles in the friendly Golden Oldies) was a letter written by John Thornett. John was at the club’s first anniversary dinner – a former Wallaby captain, he is now in ill health and was unable to attend the reunion. His letter encapsulated the spirit of rugby. Some of those oldtimers need to brush up their boat racing skills – must be the lack of practise. So much for age and cunning overcoming youth and enthusiasm. But well done to the organisers, members and all involved. It was a big effort, well done. Roll on the next one! The Postman was a bit concerned this week – this wet stuff has been falling on his head and he had all but forgotten what it was. It’s been a while, but the Monaro sure will benefit from a good soaking.


We’re past the shortest day, so now only a couple of months until spring. You little beauty!

Editor, Three years ago, Julia Gillard ousted Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister. In her first speech as Prime Minster she solemnly pledged that the “Budget will be back in surplus in 2013”; she would “establish a community consensus” for action on climate change before in the future putting a price on carbon; she would seek consensus on the proposed Resources Super Profits Tax; and she pledged that she would provide “strong management of our borders”. Finally she said “I also believe that it’s important if you lead a team to rely on the collective efforts of the team…. So it is my intention as Prime Minister to lead a Government that draws on the best efforts of my Cabinet and ministerial colleagues, on

Your local Award-winning newspaper

the best efforts of each member of our parliamentary executive and the best efforts of each member of our caucus to ensure that our Government is on track”. Well three years down the track we can see that not one of these solemn pledges to the Australian people has been kept. Labor is a broken wreck of a once fine political party. Whether Kevin Rudd topples Julia Gillard this week is now irrelevant. The Labor Government has betrayed the Australian voting public and deserves to be flung out of office, with the hope it might examine its failures and take steps to rebuild. R. K Flynn

Riposte Lisa Ashurst You know, if I hear the word “misogynist” bandied around in the wrong context one more time, I swear I’m going to blow a gasket or something. Okay, so Julia Gillard may have been feeling seriously peed off the day she made her now famous speech (we all have our off days) but when it’s all said and done, she had a bit of a slip-up and used the wrong word. The one she was after was “chauvinist”. There’s quite a difference between a misogynist and a chauvinist and if the traits often attributed to Tony Abbott are correct then he definitely has some hefty chauvinistic tendencies, but a misogynist he isn’t. So let’s take a look at those two words. Chauvinist is a term applied to a man who believes males are superior to females in every way. He perceives women as less intelligent than men, less competent and generally only good for four things; cooking, cleaning and child rearing being three of them and therefore they should all just stay at home amongst the domestics where they belong. The chauvinist in the work place sees female co-workers as only there to make his coffee, run his errands and generally provide him with eye candy. He will scoff at her work performance and patronise her at every opportunity. He is a big believer in “women’s” work and “men’s” work and wild horses couldn’t drag him across that perceived line. But the male chauvinist doesn’t hate women, he just sees them as there purely to make his life

a lot more comfortable which is why he is quite happy to share his home environment with one (poor woman). The misogynist however is a completely different animal and here’s where I question Ms Gillard’s choice of labelling. A misogynist hates women with a passion that has nothing whatsoever to do with his sexual orientation. In fact many misogynists are heterosexual men. Misogynists abhor the company of women to the point where they will not socialise with or speak to women unless circumstances compel them to do so and even then they will keep it to the absolute abrupt minimum and if there’s one thing you can guarantee a misogynist will most certainly never ever do, that is marry one. Seriously, women are so far removed from the misogynist’s agenda that it’s not even funny! But it doesn’t quite fit Tony Abbott, does it? And this is my problem with Ms Gillard’s big speech. She not only used the wrong term but now, as a result, every man and his dog is suddenly a “misogynist” if he’s less than deferential to some woman one day, for whatever reason. Men can have off days just as women can but that usually doesn’t make them some kind of monster and I’m fairly sure the average male could not be labelled a misogynist. He may not even be a chauvinist, but this hasn’t stopped “misogynist” becoming the new buzz-word for every woman who thinks some guy has just said or done the wrong thing by womankind. Not a misogynist, ladies! I hope I’ve cleared all that up now.

Schnappy regional finalist Snowy Mountains schnapps distillery established by a couple who met on the ski fields of the Austrian Alps is among the 23 finalists in the 2013 Telstra NSW Business Awards. Brad Spalding, who grew up in the Victorian fruit belt, was a ski instructor when he met Monika Landegger, whose family distilled schnapps on farms around the Austrian village of Kitzbuhel. In 2004, the husband and wife team invested in distilling equipment and established wildbrumby schnapps distillery on the Alpine Way between Jindabyne and Thredbo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we returned to Australia to live in the Snowy Mountains region, our vision was to recreate some of the magical ambience of the Austrian alpine culture while serving customers a world class schnapps product,â&#x20AC;? Mr Spalding said. The business is Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only dedicated schnapps distillery and offers distillery door tasting and sales, viewings of the distillation process and food

Master builders welcome solid building approvals data Statement by Executive Director of the MBA-ACT, John Miller

Looking at the data for the ACT, Mr Miller said that it was a little disappointing that approvals in Canberra had declined in trend terms but noted that this had followed two positive months of data. “The April figures for Canberra are always influenced by sentiment around the Budget and that certainly seems to be the case,” he said. “Notwithstanding the Budget expectations and aftermath, the overall health of the local industry remains robust,” Mr Miller said. He said he believed the Reserve Bank’s continuing approach to interest rates would assist in maintaining sentiment.

Canberra’s peak building and construction industry organisation, Master Builders ACT has welcomed the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics building approvals data revealing a 9.1 per cent nationally seasonally-adjusted increase in April. The executive director of the MBA-ACT, John Miller said the increase was heartening when weighed against the volume of generally negative economic news which had impacted consumers in April. He said that, just as importantly, it represented the strongest increase in the building approvals data so far this year. Mr Miller said he was particularly pleased to see that the increase was based not only on a surge with respect to multiFor further information please contact: unit developments but a solid 2.5 per cent with respect to John Miller 02 6247 2099 or 0408 697849 private sector houses.

Best Month for Home Loans Approvals in 3 ½ Years The latest housing finance data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics has shown April had the highest monthly uptake of home loans since November 2009, says leading mortgage broker Loan Market. Loan Market spokesperson Paul Smith said that the 48,475 home loan approvals in April was the fifth consecutive month of growth for the struggling sector and that Western Australia was one of strongest rebounding states, posting a five and a half year high. Mr Smith said that compared to the same time period last year home loan approvals were up 7 per cent nationally and each state and territory achieved growth. NSW was a particular stand-out, performing eight per cent better than April 2013 and posting the highest total in 43 months. “The resource and mining states are running hot right now, with WA and SA posting double digit growth from last year.The activity in these states is now on-par with pre-GFC levels,” Mr Smith said. “Growth like this is encouraging as it demonstrates that confidence is returning to the property and finance markets. The RBA rate cut in May and the increased competition

between lenders during this period should see another record set in May’s ABS’s data. Mr Smith said that Victoria was the only state not posting a monthly growth result but that was due to a strong April figures which saw the state achieve a 42 month high. The 12,647 home loan approvals in May 2013 where the second highest result since November 2009. ABS Housing Finance Results (April 2013, Available Here).

Schute Bell wool report An Eastern seaboard only offering this week resulted in just 24,478 bales being presented to the trade. The first day of sales resulted in an unchanged market with some small gains for the superfine types with almost everything else being quoted fully firm. Superfine types continued to gain ground on the final day however the medium types started to show signs of weakness which continued as the day progressed. Not even the Aussie dollar with a lead weight attached to it, sinking to a three year low against the US could hold the market up this week. 23,177 bales were sold for the week with a passed in rate of 5.3%.

Major buyers included Techwool, Fox and Lillie & Tianyu. Merino Skirtings and Cardings held firm this week with the Merino Carding indicator in reach of its record high. Next week is the last sale of the season and it appears that the volume of wool offered through the auction system is going to be on par with the previous season. The 201314 season begins immediately with sales in the first two

weeks of July before going into a three week recess. This Weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sales The last sale of the season will see 38,524 bales on offer nationally with 13,511 in Sydney. Schute Bell, Wool Auctions, Goddard & Monaro Wool are selling on Thursday.

Weekly Market Update - Week ending Friday, 21 June 2013

Charge for NVD books

From July 1 sheep producers will be required to pay for the national vendor declaration books they must use for livestock transactions. Producers will have to pay $35 per NVD book of 20 forms. They will also have the option to use the cheaper electronic NVD forms, which are $1 each. For the past nine years sheep NVDs have been available to producers free of charge, with costs subsidised by the Sheepmeat Council of Australia from national residue survey levies. The cost of funding the books has been about $700,000 per year. NRS expenditure now exceeds income, with reserve funds being used to meet the difference - which would be quickly exhausted unless changes were made. The SCA decided to remove the subsidy for NVD books to allow NRS residue monitoring programs to continue. The essential monitoring activities underpin market access for Australian sheepmeat in domestic and international markets. The NRS is part of the government and industry strategy to minimise chemical residues and environmental

contaminants in Australian food products and promote market access. SCA president Ian McColl said maintaining market access was paramount to the ongoing success of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $3.5 billion sheep industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To this end, SCA directs investment to the highest priority activities,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NRS residue monitoring program confirms Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status as a producer of clean food and facilitates access to key export markets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NRS programs provide confirmation of good agricultural practices, help to identify potential residue problems and indicate where follow-up action is needed.â&#x20AC;? McColl said producers could continue to use their current NVD books but if they had not received a new book for a number of years they should consider obtaining the latest version in order to provide the most up-to-date information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Failing to fulfil the obligations of accreditation poses a risk to your business, the Australian livestock industry and its international reputation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;LPA accreditation ensures that livestock attract the most competition in the marketplace.â&#x20AC;?

Bushpigs roundup Under 10’s This weekend we played Vikings. On our trip we had to wait for a car accident to clear so when we finally made it to Vikings we were straight off the bus and onto the field. The Vikings were short a few players so we lent them two of our guys (Beau and Paddy). Was a good solid game with both teams giving each other a great workout and the final result being a very close 31:27 win to the Vikings. Our team worked well together with Griff, Thom and Ryan earning all our points. Bus trip home was nice and loud so by the time we got home the parents were as exhausted as the kids. Great weekend and looking forward to the next game. Under 11s The Under 11’s piglets traveled to Cooma to play the Red Devils it was very cold and frosty but it was still fun. Two tries to Cameron Maclean one tri to Jake Midgley two to Brandon Nikora one to Ben Taylor and one to Mitchell

Thrum the final score was 43-17 and we won. Tries were converted by Liam Nicholls and Jake Midgley. Report by Liam Nicholls Under 13’s Results for U13’s on Saturday was 50 – 17 to the bushpigs. Under 15’s The Under 15’s travelled to Eddies in Canberra for round 6. St Edmunds was leading the comp and the under 15’s were missing some of their players. The game was played at a fast pace with Eddies running in a few tries in the first half. However in the second half we started to dominate in the forwards and our backs started to make some good ground. Tries were scored by Liam Allen and Daniel Cross. Both were converted by Lochie Colin. It was a good game, but Eddies ended up winning 34 to 14.

Cooma Colts reach competition halfway mark Snowy River Painting U8 The Snowy River Painting U8’s took on the Bungendore U8’s on a frosty Sunday morning. The boys started off well, getting a quick try through the ever ready to run Jack McPherson. His size and power bagged him two tries on the day. The lead swapped several times. A determined Maison Turner got himself and team three more tries. The try of the match came though a strong run from Lee Morgan. He broke through countless defenders to do a great dive under the posts. Tommy Russell kicked the conversion and looked for approval from the whole crowd. The defensive effort from Charlie Fleming, Louie Mould and Jordan Williams kept the visitors looking. Cam Filtness, Jacob Smith and Clayton Clark had around the ruck under control. Shane Williams kept the Bungendore side guessing with his fine dummies. The boys were unlucky to win, going down 28 to 34, but will be better for the experience. Well done. The choc award went to Cam Filtness. The Maccas award went to Jack McPherson and Maison Turner. They both had great games in defence and attack. Lee Morgan got the medal for his outstanding running beating off far bigger opponents.

Zusak made a good break scoring our only try with the successful conversion by Remy Oldrey. We saw a lot of improvement from a lot of our players. Shaylee Strickland, Clayton Miners and Sean Dixon made some great tackles. Overall, Cooma were very good with their defence. Although being defeated 20 – 6, the whole team played well.

able to finish the game winning 50 to 16. Try scorers in the second half were Joel Saville, Jamie Rogers with Bailey Burke and Jake Hedger scoring 80 metres tries and Bailey Burke had a good day with his boot kicking 7 out of 9 goals which game him a score of 18 points in total. The Medal went to Joel Saville who wrapped up 4 tries for the day and the McDonald’s Awards went to Alex Swan and Kane Trent-Smith for their excellent defence.

U15s Last Sunday the U15 Colts took on the Yass Magpies to start the second round of the competition. After last week’s disappointing result the boys were keen to get the season back on track and needed a win against Yass . Cooma started well and scored first and took control with good ball play. A well weighted kick from Travis Flanagan and the bounce of the ball allowed Damo Hayden to score untouched. We were completing our sets and making good ground through the bigger Yass forwards and another great kick saw Zach Fawcett cross for the first of his two tries and we quickly raced to a 16-0 lead just before half time. With several players out injured and Lachie Sellers coming off before the break we had a tough ask ahead with more than half a Monaro Panel Beaters U9 game to play.

Cooma Golf report by Garry Atkinson Last Saturday saw great winter weather once again but let’s face it, the air was cold for the 47 keen players who contested round two of the Brad Bradley Trophy. Wednesday also saw a strong field contest the traditional stableford medley - all in all a big week of golf for the club. So let’s recap the weekend of golf. On Saturday golfers contested a stableford medley event to determine the Brad Bradley Trophy. In A grade Adam Robinson continued his great under par form to win the day with a fine 39 points. Adam is putting in plenty of practice of late and his form is showing the results. Let’s face it - on plus 3 a bit of practice is definitely required. A grade runner up was Mark Rainsford with a fine 38 points. B grade was won by Sean Smith (gearing up for the holidays) also with a 39 points with another schoolie Mike Introna coming in second with 37 points on a countback. In C grade Luke Day won with 34 point on a countback from runner up Dave Abraham. Ball winners went down to Bart Joseph with 34 points. Longest drive in A grade was a long straight hit by Dave Crawford, B grade was

taken out by Mike Introna and C grade was won by Greg Abraham. Nearest the pins went to Andrew Barnes on the 4th and Chris Brown on the 11th. On Sunday there was a single stableford played. Brian Searle won the day with 36 points. Ball winners went down to Norm Marshall with 25 points. Nearest the pin on the 17th was Denis Minehan. On Wednesday 20 players competed in a single stableford medley. Winner on the day was Denis Minehan with a fine 42 points from runner up Richard Hanna with 41 point. Certainly two fine rounds by Denis and Richard. Ball winners went down to Frank McKnight with 35 points. Nearest the pins were not at hand at the time of writing. With winter in full swing, golfers will see single stablefords on all three competition days this week coming. A reminder to all members that there is an extra ordinary meeting on Saturday July 7 to vote on changes to country membership limits. Finally congratulations to Mark Rainsford, green keeper Ben and our wonderful volunteers for the condition of the course. The working bees occurring at the moment are certainly making our course look its best for winter visitors. Good golfing everyone and see you on the course.

Red Devils U11s meet Piglets

Zone selections in bowls The following players have been selected to represent this district in the Zone Patron Shield next weekend, June 29 and30 at Lake Conjola. G Venables, K Weston, G R Russell and M Storta, M Grifiths, T Reed, P Cannell and J Schoon, P Marsicano, N McGregor, P Caldwell and P Schreder, K Maynard, B Skelly, T Butler and D Turner. Their first opponents on Saturday Morning will be South Coast followed by Central South Coast in the afternoon. Sunday morning they play the far South Coast. We wish them every success. In a pairs game on Saturday Jack Sajina and Geoff Venables scored two shots on each of the first four ends against Peter Marsicano and Ignazio Mondello to lead 8-0 and kept up the good work to extend their lead to 16-3 after ten ends. Each team scored thirteen shots in the run home to give Jack and Geoff victory 29-16. Maureen D’Amico, Tom Reed and Richard Nichols were slow starters against Bob Douglas, Mario Frezza and Don Jarvis and trailed 2-9 after just eight ends,


before finding the line and length to storm home 20-11. Keith Goodwin, Guilio D’Amico, and Margherita Zasso made a great start against Max Povey, Renate Winckel and Paul Cannell when they were in front 10-2 at the halfway point. Max, Renate and Paul then took charge and by end 19 the scores were locked at 14-14. One shot to Paul’s team on end 20 and all players agreeing to call a halt giving Paul’s team victory 15-14. There are bowlers and there are very keen bowlers and it was the latter variety that turned up for bowls last Sunday. Mary Phillips, Jack Sajina and Nelson Wallace were travelling nicely till they dropped four shots on end seven against Renate Winckel, Peter Marsicano and Guilio D’Amico. From then till end fourteen things went evenly for each team when it was agreed that the warmth of the clubhouse was more appealing than having all joints locked up and the match was called off with Guilio’s team in front 15-11. Next Wednesday will see another attempt to get the Bill Elder Shield up and running.

Red Devils U12s lose to Eddies The Red Devils U12 team played St Edmunds at home in front of a big home crowd for the club’s 50th celebration weekend. It was an icy and cold morning and after a bit of back and forth, great runs, lots of defence, St Eddies were leading 24 – 0 at halftime. The boys came back warmed up and fired up with some great defence bringing down the bigger opposition players much to the crowd’s enjoyment. The boys never gave up, played valiantly and responded to the home crowd cheering by

persistently playing as a team to work the ball down to the try line. With some great offloading, Toby Haylock crossed the line for the Devils first and only try. Final score was 50 – 5 to St Eddies. The team played fantastic against a much bigger team and should be very proud of their efforts. Points for the day went to: 3 – Daniel Stove, 2 – Archie Allen and 1 – Bailey Rogers. Capital Dial-aPizza Award to Daniel Stove.

Stallions Firsts lose 26-20 to Moruya The top two teams face off against each other at Moruya and the end result shows how close they are. The Stallions started well this week and after eight minutes Zach took the line on and crossed for a four pointer. Zach again was heavily involved in the Stallions second try with a lovely ball to Tim Williams who scooted down the touch line to be tackled just short of the line but was able to flick a pass inside to Matty Salvestro to cross in the corner. The conversion again was unsuccessful but the guys looked in charge leading 8 nil after 15 minutes. Moruya were able to get more ball and although it was a wet day they seemed to be controlling it better than Cooma. After a couple of errors from the Stallions, Moruya crossed between the post and with a successful conversion were now only two points behind. The Stallions were able to hit back through a typical charge from Chris Khoury and with the conversion successful the Stallions were in front 14-6. Moruya again were able to hit back with a mounting penalty count in their favor they crossed close to half time leaving the score 14 -10 to the Stallions at half time. A worrying sign for the Stallions was their ability to control the wet ball and lack of discipline and the coach hoped to stem this for the second half. The second half started and Cooma were putting themselves under enormous pressure with split balls coming out of their own half and piggy back penalties taking the pressure of Moruya. The players seemed to be defending well and a promising attack by Moruya was thwarted by another Jake Schofield intercept. He had to out run a couple of Moruya quicks and was able to cross to give the Stallions

20- 10 lead going into the last 20 minutes of the game. Again the Stallions could not control the ball and with some definite home town penalties Moruya seemed camped in the Stallions half. Finally the pressure told and with 10 minutes remaining Moruya had crossed for two quick tries putting them into the lead 22-20. The Stallions had to try some things but with foour minutes remaining on the clock the home side crossed again and seemed to have the game in their grip leading 26-20. The Stallions had one last chance and with a kick across field Sam Gilbert went within a whisker of grounding the ball but the Moruya player was able to get his foot to the ball as Sam was diving for it. A dropout saw the guys on the attack again but they came up just short and the game finished typically with a Moruya penalty. It was a good contest by two top sides and the only difference was Moruya handled the wet conditions better and with a penalty count 13- 5 against it makes it hard to get the better of your opposition. Best for Cooma on the day went to Corey Thomas, Jack Williams, Jake Schofield and Todd Williams. There is a crunch game coming up this week at home against Tathra a win will keep the boys well entrenched in the top three whereas a loss could see them out of the four. The Reserve grade will kick off at 1pm followed by the First grade at 2:30. The guys would really like some hometown support to help them across the line this week and continue their charge towards a premiership.

Cooma Stallions Play Tathra in Tathra SUNDAY JUNE 30 Fillies 18’s Reserve 1st Grade -


Zach Smith is grabbed going over the line for a try on Sunday.

Fillies maintain winning streak The Cooma Fillies remain undefeated after a tight game against the Moruya Sharkettes on the weekend. Fielding a side riddled with injury and illness, the Fillies eventually ran out 24-4 victors in damp and muddy conditions. The Fillies kicked off and after a solid defensive set, gained good field position early. Sharkettes’ halfback Louisa Bonner steered her side around the park well, but the Fillies stood up through the defence of Patrice Ingram and Kirrily Carberry. Alicia Bolton found herself in the fullback position early in the game and after taking a solid kick from Moruya, shimmied past defenders to open the scoring for the day. Maree Ingram kept the Cooma girls moving forward and through the attack of Anna Steel and Abby Schofield, maintained their field position, though Moruya’s defence nullified Cooma’s muddied attack. Meg Bracher was safe at the back of the field and after easily cradling a kick, found space out wide and out paced defenders to gain the Fillies second try. Moruya’s defence held strong and despite half-breaks from Brianna Von Der Burg and Sheila Sillery, the score at half time was a tight 8-0. In the second half, the Fillies aimed to correct their shaky opening half with more controlled play and by incorporating rehearsed moves. Kate Schofield gave good support to her team out wide, which informed much of the Fillies opening action in this half. From a set play, Georgie Clarke crossed for her first of the day, pouncing on a well weighted kick from Bolton and breaking through defenders to extend the lead. Danielle McGufficke and Cassandra Pinner were solid in defence while Tracy Frazer put

her body on the line for the good of the game. Jade Lee began a running battle with Moruya’s Bonner in the second half and was tagged with vigour after breaking the line, before emulating the line break minutes later and this time, regaining her feet and scoring under the posts. Bonner caused headaches for the Cooma side, saving another try through a collision with Maree Ingram who had also broken through, before Ingram got her back, setting up Clarke for her second try of the game and with Bolton’s conversion, taking the score to 24-0. Moruya’s energy never waivered and was felt by the Fillies and the referee alike, and with minutes remaining on the clock, slid through Cooma’s defence and scored in the corner to get them on the board. Unfortunately, it was too little, too late for the Moruya girls and as the full time siren sounded, the Fillies remained on top, 24-4. The girls’ win showed plenty of heart, but highlighted many areas for improvement over the next two weeks. They have next weekend off, as the Tathra Sea Eagles do not have a leaguetag side, before facing Narooma away in a fortnight. Points this week went to Kate Schofield, 1, for her amazing support and safe defence; Alicia Bolton, 2, whose kicking game and enthusiasm keeps the crowd coming; and Sheila Sillery, 3, who defended like a ninja and was dangerous in attack all day, with Georgie Clarke awarded Players’ player for the second week in a row for her outstanding defence and two try effort.

Red Devils sweet victories over Goulburn The Cooma Red Devils celebrated their 50th year of with 10 minutes to go Goulburn were able Rugby in style with two great wins against arch rivals and to get back down into the Cooma half and with four minutes to go were able competition leaders Goulburn.

Reserve grade took to the wet and boggy field ready to match it with Goulburn who had beaten them on the two previous encounters this year. Cooma started slowly with the big Goulburn forwards rolling forward in the heavy conditions. Only good low tackling from the Cooma forwards with Luke Van Der Platt, Adam Schofield and Nat Jennings stopping Goulburn’s momentum. Cooma’s discipline was allowing Goulburn to control the game and soon they were able turn the field position into points with Goulburn scoring two early tries to have a 12-0 lead for most of the half. With three minutes to go in the half and Goulburn attacking Cooma’s try line, Neil Schouten was able to scoop up a loose ball and run 85m to score under the posts at the other end of the field, Nathan Boate converted and Cooma went into half time trailing 12-7 but confident that they were starting to get on top of the Goulburn side that was tiring. If they could get their discipline under control there was a chance of winning the game. Cooma came out and from the kick off applied plenty of pressure to the Goulburn attack and with this strong tackling were able to turn defence into attack and on the back of strong runs from Kade Graff, Cody Henderson and Chris Roberson were in good field position to post points. After being held up over the line Cooma was awarded a five metre scrum and from the scrum win Aerial Miners was able to pick the ball up from number 8 and dive over untouched. Boate converted again and Cooma had hit lead for the first time. Cooma was starting to play with renewed vigour, with Boate being able to find field position by kicking in behind Goulburn’s and making Goulburn work it out of their own half. Cooma’s third try came about after Nathan Boate again kicked down field the Goulburn fullback picked up the ball and went to kick clear but James Ewart raced through and charged down the kick and then had the presence of mind to grab the loose ball and dive over under the posts. With a successful conversion Cooma now had a 21-12 lead and with the large crowd urging the boys on, Cooma was soon attacking the line again and this time it was Ben Rolfe who was able to crash through the defence and score. Boate again converted and Cooma now had a 28 to 12 lead and

to score but it was not enough and Cooma ran out winners 28-17. Points in reserve grade 1 point was shared between Nathan Boate and Ben Rolfe, 2 points Luke Van Der Platt, 3 points Kade Graff and Player’s Player was Tommy Maxwell.

First grade First Grade took to the field in front of a packed Rotary oval crowd ready to take it to the competition leaders Goulburn who they had been beaten by last start, but Cooma had been victorious in the first round of the competition. From the kick off Cooma was ready to play footy but so was Goulburn and for the first 10 minutes both sides played plenty of football between the two 22’s . Cooma was first to score when Pat Egan was again able to find room to move and crashed through the defence and


dived over for the first try of the afternoon. Ben Schouten took over kicking duties with Ryan Morgan away but with his first attempt hit the upright. Cooma was again making good progress down the field on the back of strong runs from Kingsley Vance, Jimmy Nicholls and Tom Laddams. Getting into good field position Cooma was again able to get across the try line. This time it looked like Pat was going to score again but he offloaded before the line and Kingsley Vance dived over to score. Ben Schouten converted the try and Cooma had a 12-0 lead. Goulburn were able to get down into Cooma’s half and capitalise on Cooma’s discipline by kicking two penalty goals to reduce the margin to 12-6 and this remained the score till half time, with both sides having strong defensive games, Cooma’s defence was being led by Leighton Bates, Damien Hopkins and James Strange who was having a great game, causing a number of turn overs. After half time Cooma came out and continued on with the good game they had been playing, with Cooma playing a good territorial game on the back of a strong kicking game from the Schouten brothers and Will Nichols. This meant that Goulburn had to play from deep inside their own half and with Cooma’s scrum dominating Goulburn’s Cooma was controlling most of the play. Ten minutes into the second half Alex Moon had to have a little sit down for 10 minutes after taking out the winger after he had kicked the ball. Cooma then went on the attack and Damien Hopkins went close to scoring on a number of occasions only to be pulled down metres from the line. With this applied pressure Cooma was able to again score with Phil Johnson getting across for a try. Schouten was unable to convert but it gave Cooma a 17-6 lead. Cooma was buoyed on by the huge crowd and with Goulburn attacking Cooma’s defence held tight and Cooma held on to win a great game of football. Points in first grade, 1 point was shared between Will Nichols and James Strange, 2 points Jimmy Nicholls, 3 points Phil Johnson and Player’s player was James Strange. All the players would like thank the crowd that turned out on Saturday and all those that helped out in making the weekend such a success so thank you.
