matter to Facebook and the Parliament last week, the Liberals categorically denied it and viciously attacked me instead. Catherine Cusack MLC for Port Stephens said, “Tasman is passionate about politics but I struggle with how naive he has been to think this was a good or helpful thing to do. “I am very sorry this has happened,” said Ms Cusack. Ms Abbott stated, “Elections should be a contest of ideas rather than a race for likes on social media, and I think that Tasman forgot about this. “I am deeply saddened and disappointed that this has taken place, and that we were all misled. “I have personally called Kate to apologise on behalf of my campaign, and assured her that he will no longer have any involvement with my campaign,” Ms Abbott said. Kate Washington has been defended by the opposition leader for sharing electoral roll information, however, at this time no confirmation whether an investigation into Kate Washington’s actions is being conducted or not.

the last week all the ‘news’ has been about the methods (or bad thereof) of the current campaigning. Fake Facebook profiles which Kate Washington has accused of “trolling” her and her campaign have been linked to Tasman Brown, a staffer from Catherine Cusack’s office, volunteering on the Port Stephens Liberal candidates campaign. Kate Washington said, “Ms Abbott needs to come clean on her role in this co-ordinated campaign to smear me and my credibility on Facebook. “She has proven herself

International Women’s Day Scholarships

A MAGAZINE publisher, a sporting star and a teen who is passionate about helping kids to eat healthily are the recipients of this year’s International Women’s Day Scholarships from Port Stephens Council. Saffron Quantrell, Maya Stewart and Emily Healy have each been awarded a $1000 scholarship at the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay’s International Women’s Day luncheon. The scholarships are designed to support local women and the valuable contribution they make to our community across a range of fields — arts, culture, environment, business, community, health and sport. Deputy Mayor Sarah Smith says this is the second year Port Stephens Council has offered the scholarships. “International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women who are achieving great things as individuals and our community. “This year’s theme is Balance for Better — raising awareness against bias, taking action for equality and celebrating women’s achievement,” she said. “These scholarships are a small way that Port Stephens Council is helping to create opportunities for local women. “Saffron Quantrell of Anna Bay is raising up local women by sharing inspiring stories in her free family magazine. She will be publishing an annual magazine called ‘Real women of Port Stephens’. “Maya Stewart of Nelson Bay is a role model for aspiring sports stars. She is currently playing for the NSW Waratah Women’s super W team and has represented Australia at an international level.

“Emily Healy of Medowie is just 16 years old and has started a business to teach children and young people how to cook whole foods free from additives and preservatives. “I want to congratulate our winners and everyone who applied — there are so many deserving women in our community who are doing fantastic things. I’m excited to see how our winners will use their scholarships to achieve their goals,” she added.

Mayor Ryan Palmer and Cr Chris Doohan attended a Medowie Rugby Club training session on Tuesday, 3 March 2019 to announce that funding, although not yet

Details of recipients:

SAFFRON QUANTRELL Saffron is 47 years old from Anna Bay. She has published a free family magazine for the past eight years and will be publishing an annual manual called ‘Real women of Port Stephens’. The magazine will feature inspiring stories from a diverse selection of local women from all walks of life. It will also promote health and wellness, culture, connectivity and give a voice to local business. Saffron has also started an online Facebook support group for women with almost 1300 members. Women are using the group to connect, make friends, have fun and support one another. MAYA STEWART Maya is 18 years old from Nelson Bay. She has represented Nelson Bay at a National and International level. Being an avid sporting participant she commenced playing rugby union.

q Emily Healy, Maya Stewart and Saffron Quantrell. She represented Australia at the world school 7s, winning the tournament. This led to her being named in the dream team and is currently playing for NSW Waratah Women’s super W team as well as participating in Aussie 7s training. Maya enjoys being a role model for younger girls, that dreams are achievable.

EMILY HEALY Emily is 16 years old from Medowie. She has volunteered for the last two years

for a children’s program that has a large focus on emotional and social well-being. She has always been interested in in promoting health and well-being for children. She has started a business to provide educational material and hands on workshops for children and young people. They would learn how to cook whole foods free from additives and preservatives and equip them with life schools which will help stop the unhealthy food cycle in our community.

confirmed, is being sourced by the Council to upgrade the Clubhouse at Boyd Oval. Mayor Palmer said, “The Club has outgrown the current building and upgrades are sorely needed.” He noted that the bathroom facilities, in particular, were inadequate for both the players and crowds of supporters attending games. Cr Chris Doohan also said, “The cricket pitch next door to Medowie Rugby Club is being converted to a rugby ground giving the facility a primary and secondary playing field to further accommodate the growing

Club.” With work already started to remove the cricket pitch the new grounds should be ready for use within a few months. Club President Johan Kruger said, “A large number of junior players have registered for the 2019 season which has highlighted the need for expanded facilities.” Mayor Ryan Palmer said, “Port Stephens Council will work closely with the Committee to design a Clubhouse to better serve the needs of Club.” Further announcements are expected in July when the design phase is completed.

he said. Mr Wallis says the investment in solar panels will deliver measurable benefits for Council and the community. “With the addition of 357 solar panels on our Administration Building roof, it’s estimated that we’ll be able to reduce its yearly energy consumption by a massive 25%. “That means a better outcome for the environment and more savings to put into important community services. “Our Administration Building will use approximately 85% of the solar power generated, while the remaining 15% will be put back into the grid on weekends and public holidays when energy use is low. “Port Stephens Council has taken advantage of solution no.

Meet the candidate: Maureen Magee

Greens Party Nominate Maureen Magee As Candidate In Upcoming March 23 Election.

By Heather SHARP

THE Australian Greens Party will have a representative vying for position of Member for Port Stephens in the quickly approaching Saturday, March 23 election. Ms Maureen Magee has been nominated by her party to stand for election. News Of The Area asked Ms Magee what she saw as the three main areas of concern for Port Stephens and what she will do, if elected, to address these issues. Ms Magee see protecting the environment as a number one priority, saying, “Protection of the amazing natural environment, including habitat for threatened flora and fauna such as koalas, which is under threat.” “The Greens support a RAMSAR listing for the Mambo wetlands, retaining the site of Tomaree Lodge in public hands for community use, and seeing off the proposal for housing at the heritage Boomerang Park in Raymond Terrace.” For those unaware, a RAMSAR listing would preserve the Mambo wetlands as a site of international significance. The second priority is to prevent what Ms Magee sees as overdevelopment, saying “The State government and Port Stephens Council have long favoured developers over local communities; planning should be for people not for profit and the planning system must be overhauled.” Ms Magee raised the PFAS contamination as her third priority, telling News Of The Area, “Justice is needed for the 600+ families whose lives have been ruined by PFAS contamination from Willliamtown airport.” On her motivation to run as a candidate, Ms Magee said, “I want to use my experience and education to help make a better world for all of us.” “The Greens’ four principles, social justice, sustainability, peace and non-violence, and grassroots democracy are solid values I strongly believe in and try to live.” Ms Magee agrees a high school should be built in Medowie, saying “The Greens are strong supporters of free public education.” “School capacity should be increased ahead of, not lag behind, population growth which will be significant in Medowie and Raymond Terrace.” Ms Magee sees the traffic problems in and around Nelson Bay and Port Stephens to be of concern, telling News Of The Area, “One of the

q Ms Magee plans to stand on principles of environment protection, social justice, and transparency. major traffic problems in Port Stephens is the growth of sand-mining, which could see up to 1500 heavy trucks a day on single carriageway roads in the next few years.” “While promotion of public transport may relieve some pressure, the tourist industry and commuters will require good roads well into the future.” “Completion of a dual carriageway Nelson Bay Road is a higher priority than a hugely costly new Fingal Bay Link Road, an alternative route to Shoal Bay and Fingal Bay can and should be found that is less costly and does not wreck the Tomaree National Park.” Ms Magee takes a strong stance on political donations, saying “All levels of government need to be more transparent and consultative, and must take seriously input received from the community, instead of just ‘ticking the box’ on consultation.” “A key underlying problem is the corrupting effect of political donations, to which both major parties are addicted.” “The Greens have long argued for donations reform and a level playing field.” When asked what her favourite places are to spend time in Port Stephens, Ms Magee said, “I love all the bushland areas and the amazing marine environment of Port Stephens, but also the friendly local towns the character of which must be protected.”

Legacy Recognises Academic Excellence

Port Pool Price Hike By Marian SAMPSON PORT Stephens Council manages swimming pools for community use. Some local residents are disappointed by large increases to fees to access fitness classes at the pools. Port Stephens Council pool user Mr Rawson said, “I’m disappointed about the sizable increase of fees which had led he and others to boycott the Council swimming pools and to move to alternative fitness programs.” Fees have risen from $85 to $108 for the concession pass which pensioners qualify for. Nicole Dunn of Belgravia Leisure who manage the pools on behalf of Port Stephens Council told News Of The Area, “The fee increase sees the classes within Port Stephens set at a similar rate to other centres.” “It is also worth noting pricing for the 10 visit concession pass for the 2019/20 period has been held at the current rate,” she said. Belgravia Leisure conducts annual reviews with an aim to achieve consistent pricing across all Port Stephens sites. There has been minimal pricing increase over the last 2 financial years and the increase that was applied was not in line with the higher increase in staff wages and running costs of operations during those 2 years. Belgravia Leisure offers a buy nine classes get one free, with Tomaree members now able to access 17 classes per week. Belgravia Leisure also offers a direct debit payment membership which for concession members is $14.60 per week which enables members full access to the pool at anytime and access to all group fitness classes (exception of float fit) across all three Port Stephens sites. A new hydro therapy site will be opening at Taylors Beach later this year giving residents yet another alternative.

women from the school during our fundraising badge days in the various shopping centres around the Bays. The school also has been generous in making the facilities of the Tomaree Education Centre available for the Legacy Band Concert which is held annually as entertainment for our widows and supporters. “The Education Achievement Award goes some way towards showing our appreciation to Tomaree High School,” he said.

q Dan Vu achieved the highest ATAR with a result of 96.55 in 2018 and was named Dux of the year at Tomaree High School. She is pictured receiving the Port Stephens Legacy Group Alan Hudson OAM and Bart Richard OAM Certificate of Achievement from PSLG Chairman, Doug Jacka, together with a cheque to assist in her further education at University of Sydney.

PORT Stephens Legacy Group (PSLG) Chairman, Doug Jacka, congratulated Dan Vu on attaining the Tomaree High School’s highest Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) with a result of 96.55 for 2018. She was also named Dux of the school for the year. Doug Jacka of Legacy presented her with the PSLG Alan Hudson OAM and Bart Richardson OAM Certificate of Achievement for outstanding academic results in the HSC 2018. The talented student who is now enrolled at the University of Sydney also received a cheque to assist in meeting the costs associated with her further studies. Dan is studying economics as well as a number of other courses. Her aim is to join the RBA on completion of her studies. Doug Jacka told News Of The Area, “The passing of two of our original founders, Legatees Alan Hudson OAM and Bart Richardson OAM, in 2017, prompted PSLG to honour the two men’s service to the community by naming this prestigious Achievement Award after them. “Both men were veterans of World War II. “They were highly regarded throughout the Port Stephens region and as mentors and

leaders by those Legatees who followed in their footsteps.” Legacy has had a long-standing commitment to aiding the families of former servicemen and in raising funds for this purpose. In the Nelson Bay, Fingal Bay, Salamander Bay, Shoal Bay and Tilligerry Peninsula areas, PSLG assists nearly 245 widows and their children who look to Legacy for varying levels of support, advice and social interaction. Most are elderly ladies but, sadly, there is now a need to help families of our service people from more recent hostilities and peacekeeping operations in Borneo, Malaya, Indonesia, Somalia, The Solomon Islands, Rwanda, Timor, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. “Legacy are most grateful for the support we continually receive from Tomaree High School, its students and staff.” “For many years we have been delighted to have had the invaluable, cheerful and very willing assistance of many young men and

Email questions to Denise: media@newsofthearea.com.au

Dear Jasminda,

O

I recently went on a dating site and clearly said I wanted to ‘date’. Like in the 1960s when you’d go out, get to know each other, kiss if the mood took hold, but basically take it slowly. The problem is, everyone I’ve met thinks this is just code for being a man whore. Even the ones who don’t want you to move to home base within a few dates are confused as to why you are happily sitting on second base. It’s a minefield out there. Mr TK, Soldiers Point

ur resident Property Expert, is here to offer advice. Denise will be responding to questions from News Of The Area readers, throughout the circulation area of our FOUR News Of The Area papers on a rotating basis. SEND your questions to Denise, care of media@ newsofthearea.com.au and include your, name and suburb.

Dear Denise,

Dear Mr TK,

My buyer wants to alter the settlement period but I’m not sure about doing that? WELL congratulations on having a buyer for your property. That is exciting! As a Real Estate Agent, I find, on a fairly regular basis, buyers request what is usually a longer settlement term than is specified on the contract of sale. Sometimes though, they may request a shorter term. These requests stem from the buyers generally trying to organize the settlement around what their personal situation is; which may be the sale of their property or a lease term if they have been renters. As long as the change of term suits you, it can work out perfectly fine. It provides you with extra time to find yourself a suitable property, pack and organize your move. If it is a shorter term request you’ve received, then you need to decide if you can manage that. Are you already packed? Do you have a property to go to? If you are also buying, are you able to shorten that settlement as well? At the end of the day though, if a change of settlement term does not suit you and your needs, you have every right to reject the request. Hope this helps. Denise.

Special Rate Rise

Mayor’s Letter on Special Rate Variation Dear News Of The Area, AS a proud Port Stephens local I know first-hand the frustration this area has felt over the years waiting for change. I know that our community aren’t prepared to keep waiting for transformational change. As Council, we have listened to what our community want. They want projects that future-proof Port Stephens, providing more opportunities for our children to continue to work, live, play and grow. They want us to deliver safer roads, more path and cycleways, revitalised town centres, better sports and community facilities and to improve drainage around our resident’s homes. The type of projects that will change the face of Port Stephens forever, delivered across the next 10 plus years. To complete this for our community, we need to look at increasing our income. We continue to apply for grants and lobby both State and Federal Governments for support, but this will always be far from enough. We understand that affordability is a key issue for our residents, that’s why we are introducing a new Rates Assistance Program to provide relief for some of our community’s most financially vulnerable. Partnering with local welfare organisations,

Please support the advertisers within the News Of The Area as they are bringing you your local news each week.

the program aims to connect our community with easy access to financial assistance and support. Far from unnecessary, without this increase, our projects backlog will continue to grow. Our community will continue to wait. We as Council firmly believe that the people of Port Stephens have waited long enough. Now is the time – it’s Our future. Our Port Stephens. Ryan Palmer Mayor of Port Stephens

I think I know the problem here, but before I get to that, I want to clear up this whole ‘base’ thing. I’m not sure when discussing the various stages of lovemaking, we should do it through euphemisms, particularly ones relating to baseball. I personally find it a very non-sexual game that not many have had a chance to play. I’m more familiar with the far more femaleoriented Vigaro. We could get into all sorts of derogatory puns here, but this is a family newspaper. Now, with bases, the issue is not everyone uses the same base definitions. First base for some may be hand-holding. For others it may be kissing. As you progress, there is a serious danger of sliding off the base altogether – in fact being completely debased. Now, to the second matter. Your dating profile. You’ve said you wanted to ‘date’ like in the ‘1960s’. Mr TK, I don’t know how much time you’ve spent in the 1960s, but it wasn’t called the Swinging 60s for nothing. I had to question some people who had dated in that era and they told me it was a veritable hotbed of hedonism and debauchery. A time when fashion, writing, art, music, and the very closely related concept of sexual freedom flourished. A time when Nina Simone was singing about wanting a little sugar in her bowl, Zeppelin was howling about a whole lotta love and Aretha was feeling like a natural woman (she wasn’t singing about quinoa here, Mr TK). Why not try meeting women in different places, like the school gate? Those ones will be too emotionally and physically exhausted to want anything more than a Bex and a good lie down.

Port Women Gather to Support International Women’s Health and Education for the Poor Email: auspac@auspacmedia.com.au Visit our site: www.auspacmedia.com.au

By Marian SAMPSON

INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day was celebrated in the Bay by 197 at a lunch held by the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay. The event was a celebration of local women and their achievements, and will do much to support women here in Australia and abroad into the future. Attendees dug deep and purchased 211 vaccinations for young girls in Papua New Guinea to protect them from cervical cancer. The health of women and babies in Papua New Guinea is a special project lead by Taylors Beach local Wendy Stein who has with the assistance of the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay been saving the lives of women through providing health interventions, assisting with births and providing contraception. Many babies are abandoned in Papua New Guinea, providing contraception for women and girls allows these women to plan their pregnancies. According to Humanium another charity working in Papua New Guinea 37% of the population are living beneath the international poverty threshold, that means they are living on less than US $1.25/day. The charitable work of Wendy Stein is funded by the Rotary Club of Salamander

Bay. The Inspirational Gemma Sisia founder of the School of St Judes spoke of how free education for the needy in Africa became a reality that started with $10 and a dream supported by her local Rotary Club. The School is internationally renowned for the work it does. Gemma told News Of The Area, “Salamander Bay Rotary Club has been helping the school since before we opened the doors. “With the support of Australians there are 1800 students being educated free under scholarships and 250 graduates are studying at university.” The school is changing communities, for every student that attends the school there is a whole family that is being raised out of poverty. “The school is a product of when everyone does something together, donations, volunteers and spreading the word,” she said. St Judes Graduate Godwin Silayo spoke passionately about the opportunity that his scholarship at St Judes had made not only to his future but to the welfare of the very important woman in his life, his mother. The Rotary event will support Save the Kula Babies, the School of St Judes and other local services in Port Stephens.

School Parking Spill ANGER from frustrated parents about parking issues at Tanilba Bay Public School has spilled over to the Tilligerry Habitat with its enforced ‘Reserve Parking Only’ policy. Teachers and parents have been using the space which has created problems as Habitat President Dorothy Willey explains: “Increasing numbers of both staff and visitors mean that we need every available spot,”she said. “We asked the teachers involved not to use our car park and they were most obliging,”she added. “Our greatest concern is for the safety of children whose parents use our facilities as a pick up point. Their children play on the bike track and when their parents arrive they rush through the bush and across the carpark. This

creates a serious safety issue,” she said. “Our decision to close the carpark to the public was made by our executive and with a letter of support from PSSC,” she explained. “People are under the impression that our opening

hours leave the car park available after 3pm. This is incorrect. Our Nature Reserve is open 24/7/365 for locals and visitors alike and the car parking area can be occupied from very early in the day until late in the evening,” she said. Ms Willey also pointed out that it ran an after school ‘Kids’ Club’ which was overseen by volunteer Sam Zikman and two carers. “We very much see ourselves engaged with the wider community and hope to continue this bonding ,” she q Tanilba School’s parking rules. concluded.

As well as the golf, the two day event includes a dinner for 160 at the Golf Club. “We had a fashion parade of golf gear, presentation and dancing, the ladies had a fantastic time, they loved it,” Elsa said. The Ladies Classic is proudly sponsored by Ray White’s Stuart Sinclair who thoroughly an afternoon tea with the women, “Way too many great cakes,” Stuart said with a smile. Lynn Flanagan, Sue Horton, Caroline Laycock, and Margaret Pearson from the Mereweather Club

have been coming to Hawks Nest for the tournament for a number of years and it’s a must on their golfing calendar.

q VISITING GOLFERS: Lynn Flanagan, Sue Horton, Caroline Laycock, and Margaret Pearson from the Mereweather Club.

PLAYERS from 37 clubs from around the State converged on the Hawks Nest Golf Club last week for the annual Ladies Classic Tournament. In all, 256 players teed off over the two day Classic, the tournament now in its 33rd year. “In 1985 the local lady associates of the Golf Club, as they were then known then, thought it would be a great idea to hold a Ladies Golf Game during the Prawn Festival,” President Elsa Jones said. From small beginnings with just 39 players, and played over 9 holes, the Classic is now at its capacity. “We just couldn’t have any more ladies on the course,” Elsa said. “The course was in fantastic condition, that’s why the ladies love coming here.”
