Shark shock for fisherman BULAHDELAH recreational fisherman Allan Freihaut got the shock of his life last week when a white shark became tangled in his anchor ropes near Seal Rocks. Mr Freihaut was adrift about three kilometres off the coast when he went to pull up his anchor to relocate. “The shark came from nowhere and actually attacked the sea anchor, it rolled and got itself wrapped up in the ropes and started to pull the boat sideways and down,” he said. “The anchor was in the shark’s mouth when I was pulling it in, it was like a lure coming through the water.” Mr Freihaut told News Of The Area the shark cut through the ropes with its teeth due to the weight it was pulling.

Majority in support after town meet THERE was standing room only at a public meeting held in Bulahdelah last week to discuss the proposed development project with the Developer Peter Kampfner. After a lively debate which was accompanied by applause, cheers and heckling from the crowd, a show of hands indicated an overwhelming majority of community members present were in support of the project. Hamptons Property Services representative Kristy Hodgkinson outlined the details of the proposal before community members were given the opportunity to publicly voice their opinions. Allan Freihaut was one of many who spoke in favour of the project. “If our main street is only attracting seven to eight percent of highway traffic into town, what is wrong with giving another

business the opportunity to attract further passing trade,” he asked. “I can’t honestly see how doubling our spendable population can cause our town any harm, if we don’t grow our population I’m pretty sure it will come back and bite us in the butt.” Mr Freihaut also said the project would address the lack of employment opportunities in the town. Speakers against included Shiralee Café owner Chris Garrod who stated, “If you care about Bulahdelah, I would suggest that you strongly oppose the Service Centre.” “I’m all for building houses, get them built, then build the Service Centre,” she said. “If you build it out there now, all you’re doing is putting the existing cafés and service stations out of business.” Mrs Garrod suggested Council and business

operators could get together and come up with ideas for growth in the town. “We’ve got 52 weeks in every year that we can come up with something to perfect Bulahdelah,” she said. In response, Mr Kampfner said the bypass was completed four years ago and there had been 200 weeks to make something happen. “The project offers a huge opportunity for progress and positive growth by boosting the population, boosting tourism and funnelling people into the town,” he

said. “Thirty-five years ago, the population of the town was 100 more than what it is today. That’s 35 years of growth and you’ve gone down 100 people. This town deserves a future and deserves to thrive,” he added. Mr Kampfner said he is willing to discuss the project with community members and is happy to take both positive and negative feedback. The project is still in its initial phase and Mr Kampfner expects the approval process will take 12-18 months.

THE Bulahdelah Cricket Club is up and running again after a twelve year lull and has new cricket nets to practice in as well. The new cricket nets have been anticipated by the Bulahdelah Cricket Club for the last ten months and after the Council was approached about the situation, new cricket nets were installed in September this year. Councilor Dan Aldridge,

the Head of Parks and Gardens and Ron Claxton worked in conjunction with Geoff Matheson to ensure the nets were built and installed in time for the current cricket season. The Bulahdelah Cricket Club did not have enough members or leadership in the past to make up a team but this year they have entered a Men’s C Grade team in the Manning River District Cricket competition. This team caters to the ages

of 14-50+ which means that some of the previous local players for Bulahdelah are playing again now and are having the opportunity to encourage the young ones. Their opening game was on Saturday 8 October and they played against Old Bar and won. The Bulahdelah Cricket Club stated that the top scorer for Bulahdelah was Toby Carroll on 48 not out and that Toby also took a great catch and effected a run out. “It’s great to have a team back playing in town,” Geoff Matheson

LOCAL greyhound owners have welcomed the NSW Government’s decision to overturn the ban on Greyhound Racing and give the Industry one last chance. Local greyhound breeder James Saunders said while everyone is relieved that racing will continue, the decision hasn’t taken away any of the anger felt during the past three months. “It was extremely stressful, I’m a breeder predominantly and I couldn’t sell the dogs, couldn’t give them away and compensation wasn’t guaranteed,” he said. “I had no money coming in, a mortgage to pay and dogs to feed, it was pretty cruel what they did to us.” Premier Mike Baird admitted in Parliament last week that the decision to shut down the entire NSW Greyhound Racing Industry had been mistake. “I got it wrong, the Cabinet got it wrong, the Government got it wrong,” he said. “The greyhound industry will be given a last chance,

commented. “It gives the local teenage kids an opportunity to play cricket for their home town. The nets are providing a great training facility for both young and older players to develop their skills. It’s just good to see kids out playing sport.” There was a good vibe down on the Jack Ireland Sporting Ground in Bulahdelah on Saturday as good cricket was played and the community were there to support their team. providing it meets the toughest animal welfare and regulation requirements in the country.” Former Premier Morris Iemma will chair a Greyhound Industry Reform Panel that will determine the new regime. The details of reforms are unclear at this stage but could include fewer races and capping the number of dogs breed to 2000. Bulahdelah owner and trainer Mick Worth said while the local greyhound community are relieved the government have reversed the ban, they are proceeding with caution. “The decision has been made due to political pressure and nothing else,” he said. “Mr Baird was adamant that banning greyhound racing was the right thing to do and under no circumstances could the industry be reformed, but with his leadership now being questioned he’s prepared to backflip.” Mr Worth said as Premier Mike Baird had completed so many backflips in the past week, he should consider taking up gymnastics.

By Margie TIERNEY WOODCHIPS flew, the oysters were delicious, and the weather was absolutely superb. Thousands of locals and tourists enjoyed the best Karuah had to offer at the annual Oyster and Timber Festival last Saturday. They came from all over New South Wales. Among the competitors in the woodchop, World Champion Australian axeman Brad Delosa. “I’m from Lithgow in the Blue Mountains, but this is one of my favourite events,” Brad told The News Of The Area. For Trish Marsh from the Hunter Valley, woodchopping is a family affair. “I have three sons, a husband, and a son’s girlfriend competing.” There was something for everyone at the Festival, from the duck race to junior fishing competitions and an oyster eating challenge. The entire town of Karuah kicks in to make the event a success. Karuah RSL Club is the major sponsor of the Festival. “It keeps going from strength to strength,” said RSL Secretary Manager, Ross Parr. “We also have the only indoor woodchopping event in Australia.” The local IGA made a donation on Saturday and the market stalls and competitors all contribute to help keep the festival financially viable.

By Margie TIERNEY IT’S just over eight weeks to Christmas and the call has gone out for Santa’s helpers to help those in need. Members of the Myall Community Art and Craft Centre have begun their annual Christmas appeal on behalf of the Salvation Army. “We need gifts for all ages, from babies to adults,” Dorothy Ayling told The News

Of The Area. “It could be a toy, a t shirt or even men’s aftershave or talc.” “But please don’t wrap the gifts, “ said Dorothy, “The Salvation Army comes and collects the presents and then they give a voucher to all the families in need to come and choose what they like.” Every year, the Salvation Army delivers close to half a

million toys to families who are struggling to make ends meet. If you would like to donate a new or as new gift, then drop into the Myall Community Arts and Craft Centre behind the Council and Information Centre in Myall Street, Tea Gardens before Friday 11 November. The Arts and Craft Shop is open seven days a week between 10 am and 4 pm.

Show Society President Gary Gooch said the historic structure has been in use since the very first show in 1922. “People have said the bar is a part of the showground and can’t be removed, so we’ve decided to make it better,” he said.

“We want to keep the Country Show Bar look and considering it’s a major landmark of the showground, we want to retain its value.” Mr Gooch told News Of The Area the bar has been moved several times throughout its long history. “This is the original shed, it has just been towed to different spots,”

Shark shock for fisherman FROM Page 1

“One of the ropes was 20mm and the other was 10mm, its teeth cut straight through them and then it was gone,” he said. “The shark was about twofoot off the back of the boat by then. It was a great white for sure, about 10-12-foot long.” Mr Freihaut is an

experienced recreational fisherman and has seen many sharks over the years. “I’ve done a lot of game fishing in Lake Macquarie and up and down the coast. I’ve seen a lot of big sharks, but I’ve never seen anything behave in that way,” he said. “It was a day where there were whales everywhere, we had several come up literally

metres away and do circles around the boat.” Mr Freihaut said although he needs to replace his anchor he is definitely not worried about going back out on the water. “It was just one of those things, but if anyone sees a white shark with an orange and yellow surf hat, it’s mine, that was the colour of my anchor,” he said.

he said “It was originally where the soccer field is now, right up against what was then tea tree scrub.” The bar was also

located on the site of the canteen building before it was moved to its current position. Mr Gooch said the renovations to the shed are the first in at least

20-years and were necessary due to the state of disrepair and decay of the structure. The 2016 Bulahdelah Show will be held on 18 and 19 November.

stimulus for the creative writing was also pretty good,” she said. Milly told News Of The Area while studying by Distance Education was challenging, it also had its positives. “It was a good learning curve for University as you have to become more independent with your learning and it’s also flexible meaning you can study at a time that suits you,” Milly said. “But there was no faceto-face interaction with other students or teachers which meant questions couldn’t be answered on the spot. Teachers often took a day or so to get back to you which was usually done by email.” Noah, who attended Bulahdelah Central School, said although he felt quite

nervous before his English exam, he relaxed once he began writing his answers. “The essay on Discovery was a bit challenging but I managed to get a fair answer down,” he said. “I finished writing with five minutes to spare and utilised that time to check over my answers.” Following the English exam, both Milly and Noah had just over an hour to relax and refocus before returning to sit the one-hour Music 1 Aural Skills Exam. Both students agreed the musical excerpts played during the exam were interesting and fun to analyse. Exams in 117 subjects will be conducted throughout the HSC Examination period which concludes on 4 November.

Foreshore Figs planted By Margie TIERNEY WHERE once stood Coral Trees, now stand five Port Jackson Figs along Marine Drive in Tea Gardens. The two metre high trees were planted last week as part of the ongoing program to replace the Corals. Arborist Josh Duncombe supervised the operation for MidCoast Council. “They’re endemic to the area, long lived, with a massive canopy,” Josh told The News Of The Area. Social media was awash with comments when the Coral Trees were removed in September due to their

q

roots being compromised and having been deemed a noxious weed by the Department of Agriculture. No such problems however with their replacements. “They’re iconic to the area,” said Mr Duncombe. “Any development in the future, will have these (the Port Jackson figs) as their centrepiece.” The trees, sourced by local nursery Woodwards, are between five and ten years old and should double their size in the next 12 months. The figs also have a lifespan of around 200 years.

Lions fund kids breakfast

q

The Red Cross program is run in partnership with Sanitarium who provide breakfast cereals and soy milk. BCS Coordinating teacher Georgina Cunich told News Of The Area the Breakfast Club Program wouldn’t run without the support of their volunteers and Lions Club. “All our volunteers

regularly give up their time to ensure the students of our school benefit from this amazing program,” she said. “The Lions Club have been long supporters and regularly donate to help with the ongoing weekly costs.” Ms Cunich said the Lions Club have also provided equipment to help with the program including a commercial toaster. The Breakfast Club is utilised by children from Kindergarten to Year 12 on Thursday and Friday mornings.

State funding for water MIDCOAST Water has welcomed news the State Government has allocated $2.17 million towards the construction of an additional water supply system to support the area’s largest water scheme. The announcement, made by Stephen Bromhead MP, is part of a $19 million commitment to MidCoast Water by the State Government. The initial sum of $2.17m has been earmarked by the State Government as support for the Nabiac Inland Dune Aquifer Water Supply System. The $34.6 million project will ultimately deliver a second water source to the region and support the Manning scheme, which supplies 36,000 customers in the area from Crowdy Head in the north to Tarbuck Bay in the south.

“This announcement is timely as we are currently finalising the detailed design for the new water treatment plant at Nabiac,” MidCoast Water’s general manager, Ken Goulthorp explained. Mr Gouldthorp said it was anticipated the construction of the new water treatment plant will be put out for tender in the coming weeks. The connection of a second water source for this large area will provide security of supply in the event of extended dry weather and backup in the event of equipment malfunction. “When operational the Nabiac system will allow us to reduce the volume of water we extract from the Manning River, which will be an important

environmental outcome for our communities, ” Mr Gouldthorp added. The project has three main components, the establishment of an extensive bore network (which has already been completed), a water treatment plant approximately five kilometres south-east of the Nabiac township, and a pumping station at Darawank, next to the Lakes Way. Members of the community will be able to learn more about the project through a video clip now available on MidCoast Water’s website at www.midcoastwater.com.au/ nabiacwtp . The project has also been supported by an Australian Government allocation of $9.43 million under the National Stronger Regions Fund.

Clap, clap – drink tap!

THAT is the tune MidCoast Water’s well known mascot Whizzy the water drop will be singing as he entertains preschool aged children at library storytime sessions across the mid coast as part of this year’s National Water Week activities. Whizzy and his helpers will be attending seven story time sessions as part of MidCoast Water’s extensive program to raise awareness about the importance of staying hydrated during the national event. Whizzy entertains the children through song and dance, imparting important messages about drinking tap water, rather

than sugary beverages. “Turning on the tap is the easiest way for our kids to stay hydrated and healthy,” Whizzy explains. At the sessions preschoolers find out some cool facts and water and how it works in our bodies, before having a visit from the giant water drop. Whizzy will visit Tea Gardens Library – 9.30am Monday 24 October. Whizzy will also be helping MidCoast Water promote the Choose Tap message to more than 80 local preschools and primary schools over the coming months.

By Luke BOYD

MYALL COAST

A NATIONAL initiative called “Gone Fishing Day” was held October 16th 2016, and this coincided with our angling/ fishing weekend from 14th - 16th October 2016. Our club has registered and all we had to do was go fishing to show our support for the future of recreational fishing. The day was designed as a fun-filled ,healthy activity perfect for all the family. The main focus of the event each year will be to promote sustainable and ethical fishing practices. It is expected to be expanded each year to bring clubs/ organisations together for a day to participate and teach others

the importance of sustainability and healthy family fun. The angling outing weekend results are as follows. The winning weekend angler and mens division champion was Andrew Sharp catching a great swag full of fish. Some of the species included bream,whiting and mulloway. The mens angling runner up was Trevor Peirson, catching some great bream and tailor. The ladies social weekend angling champion was Michelle Cole, catching some bream and flathead. The ladies weekend runner up angler was Jessica Slow, who caught great bream. The winning Junior angler for the social fishing outing was Daisie Wheaton, who caught a very impressive bream.

YOUNG CRICKETERS: Milo in2Cricket. 

By Margie TIERNEY THE footie season is over, summer is just around the corner and that means Cricket. The season has already started for the Karuah/Tea Gardens and District Cricket club with the Sharks fielding 2 senior teams and 2 junior sides. But Secretary/Treasurer Colin McCarthy has put the call out to youngsters wanting to learn the game. “We’re looking for girls and boys between the ages of 5 to 11 to sign up for Milo in2Cricket,” Colin told The News Of The Area. Milo in2Cricket is an 8 to 12 week program which teaches children basic cricket skills. The cost is $65 per child with the cricket club’s major sponsor, the Karuah RSL, footing

part of the bill which reduces it further for parents. “Each child receives a bag, bat and ball, hat, shirt and drink bottle, so everything’s covered in the registration,” said Colin “However we also need a Coordinator to kick it off,” he said. Colin McCarthy will happily accept registrations for the Milo cricket program up until 1 December. New players are also welcome. If you’d like to show your financial support then head to the Karuah RSL on Thursday nights for the meat raffle, money raised going into the coffers of the Cricket Club. For more details you can contact Colin McCarthy 0414 833 591 or email him at colmac.1@bigpond.com

Nippers Season Begins The focus for nippers is on fun and surf awareness.

AS the warmer weather arrives so too does the annual commencement of Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest Nippers season. Sunday 9 October, 2016, was the kick off date for the Nippers beach and water activities with a good turnout of participants. Nippers are young surf lifesavers aged between 5 and 14. The focus for nippers is on fun and surf awareness. Nippers learn about safety on the beach, about dangers such as rips and blue bottles and also about surf conditions including sandbars and waves. Older Nippers also learn basic first

aid and may also learn CPR at the age of 13 yrs. When Nippers are 13 they can complete their SRC (Surf Rescue Certificate) which allows them to patrol beaches and take part in senior competition. Nippers are our patrolling surf club members of the future. It’s not too late to join. It’s on Sundays from 9am to 10.30am. The Tea Gardens/ Hawks Nest Nippers also wish to extend a big thank you to BONDS for their kind donation of high vis pink rash shirts for every registered nipper this season.
