Big numbers to Snak n Rap event By Rachael VAUGHAN

THE ‘Snak n Rap’ event was a hit on the weekend, with nearly one hundred young people turning out to celebrate and join in on the fun. This was the first of a series of three “Snak n Rap” events that are being held at the Medowie Skate Park. These community events are being funded by Port Stephens Council under the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) ‘Hey Tosser Campaign’. They would not be possible without the support of the Medowie community, young people, parents, schools and other groups, such as the Medowie Lions Club and the Medowie Neighbourhood Watch crew. ‘Snak n Rap’ also recognise the ongoing support from Port Stephens Deputy Mayor Cr

Successful community day at Medowie Snak n Rap FROM Page 1

Chris Doohan and James Campbell, the Senior Community Development and Engagement Officer at Port Stephens Council. This series of ‘Snak n Raps’ also included youth workers from ‘UP&UP’ running creative workshops at both Medowie Public School and Wirreanda Public School. Shane from ‘UP&UP’ told News Of The Area, “During these workshops, students were encouraged to think about what it means to have a safe and litter free Skate Park and, using drawing activities, students came up with images, symbols and messages designed to encourage people to stop littering.” “All students contributed fantastic ideas, drawings and messages.” “For this event, one of the ideas was chosen to be the message, and that was “Just Bin It” “Just Bin It” was an idea from a group of students, inspired by the Michael Jackson song “Beat It” with its catchy chorus changed from Just Beat It, to Just Bin It. Using this message, todays ‘Snak N Rap’ included art activities

around this message of “Just Bin It” In other words, put your rubbish in the bin. Participants participated in spray painting and drawing activities using stencils of Michael Jackson and stencils of the words “Just Bin It”. This message was also used to have conversations with Skate Park users about how they can ensure that the Skate Park stays clean and welcoming for everyone, Medowie Neighbourhood Watch and Medowie Lions were also on hand, with Neighbourhood Watch providing a lolly guessing competition, and Lions cooking a BBQ lunch for everyone. The next Medowie ‘Snak n Rap’ is booked

News Of The Area Construction of new Sports Club By Rachael VAUGHAN THE realisation of the Medowie Sports and Community Club (MSCC) took a major step forward this week with Port Stephens Council opening its call for tenders to construct the Clubhouse, bowling green and ancillaries, such as parking lot and playground equipment, for the Ferodale Road site. As expected, Chairman of the Medowie Sports and Community Club, Craig Baumann, was thrilled about this long awaited announcement. “The MSCC will be a fantastic community facility for everyone of whatever age in Medowie and it will be a true family facility run for and by all who call Medowie

media@newsofthearea.com.au

Call for Tender home,” Mr Baumann told News Of The Area. “Once a successful tender is chosen, the Committee will invite all residents to join their Club.” “A Club that will cater to their needs, those of their children and grandchildren for many years to come,” he said. “This has been a long time coming but soon it will become a reality thanks to the great support of our Port Stephens Council Councillors,” he added. Port Stephens Council Deputy Mayor, Councillor Chris Doohan, has been a driving force of the Club for the past ten years. “I am extremely satisfied to hit this milestone, and I’m hopeful that physical work will commence this year,” Cr Doohan told News Of The Area.

Careers on the Horizon for Ports Youth By Marian SAMPSON

TOMAREE High School Students spent some valuable hours finding out about the career pathways available to them at the Real Futures Foundation Careers Expo. The Expo saw industry sectors represented including Hospitality

presented by The Anchorage, Tourism by Moonshadow TCQ Cruises and Flight Centre, Police, Fire and Ambulance along with legal, trades, childcare, leisure and infrastructure sectors represented. Certainly the ability to travel the world and take a range of careers around the world or be a hairdresser on

a cruise ship inspired more than one student to think outside the square about their career path. Senior Constable Leanne Mann told News Of The Area, “The most rewarding thing I have ever done in my career as a Police Officer was to deliver a baby.” Students also learnt about base salaries and career pathways that they can develop into the future such as specialising within

Students were also issued with their portfolios on the day and were advised on employers’ expectations for first time employees. The need for students to be honest in interviews and deal with their weaknesses, was discussed with strategies put forth for those who felt that their reports may not be seen favourably by potential employers. The Real Futures Foundation encourages students to volunteer and participate in the community with the Foundations’ Ambassadors committing to participating in Bunnings’ BBQs with the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay. The Foundation encourages local businesses to give local students a go and provide opportunities for youth employment. Businesses interested in providing a young person an opportunity can contact the Foundation for assistance in finding the right young person for the role.

Man charged with MURDER after woman dies in house fire FROM Page 1 Rosemount Drive on Saturday 7 July (12:30am), after reports of an explosion and a fire. Once firefighters extinguished the blaze, they located the body of 76-year-old Raymond Terrace woman, Janice ‘Jan’ Garrett inside the home. It was treated as suspicious. Police linked the alleged crime with a car collision, some 50klm away, that occurred within an hour of the blaze. At about 1.20am, in the early hours of the morning, police responded to reports a Nissan X-Trail collided with a truck on the Pacific Highway, about 5km north of Bulahdelah. The driver of the Nissan was taken to John Hunter Hospital under police guard suffering serious injuries. On Monday 9 July, Police charged the 69-yearold with murder (DV), and destroying property with intent to endanger life. He was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court on Thursday 6 September.

News Of The Area The Community Garden is an open garden situated in the grounds of the Tomaree Community College at Nelson Bay who are using their green

thumbs to grow produce using organic principles. With strawberries, lettuce, shallots and a host of other vegetables, the garden is prolific.

THERE’S a special place where you can connect with locals in the community while growing produce. The Community Garden is situated in the grounds of the Tomaree Community College at Nelson Bay is an open garden which the community can work in and eat the results of their labours. A small group of locals

working in the garden with other members of the group is a fun and inclusive activity. “The great thing about the garden is when we finish working we can collect food to take home for our tables.” The garden team meets Monday Wednesday and Saturday mornings between 9.30am and 11.30am and offers their produce for sale to anyone who drops in. “We are very proud of our garden,” she said. There is also have a selection of ornamental plants for sale as well. There is evidence that gardening is good for your health and wellbeing with studies showing that gardeners and their children eat healthier diets than non-

gardeners. Gardening is also recognised as a form of stress relief, which can increase health and wellbeing. Gardeners can also benefit from finding direction in the dirt providing a sense of purpose and drive to achieve an end goal. In community gardens such as the one at Tomaree Community College this becomes a shared experience. The Gardening Group work together as a team and would like to invite members of the community to drop in and join them in growing beautiful produce in a wonderful community.

Koala Hospital Stage 1 Complete By Marian SAMPSON

PORT Stephens Koalas are keen to share the completion of Stage One of the Koala Hospital at One Mile Beach with the community. Funding attained through the State and Federal Governments has seen the stage completed. The fenced pens for koala rehabilitation are up and running with some rather gorgeous residents enjoying their recuperation. Carers and leaf gatherers are very appreciative of the new storage space for the koalas feed leaf. Fresh leaf is gathered continually to ensure that the koalas in care have a fresh supply with a variety of leaves on offer. Port Stephens Koalas will need one tonne of fresh leaves every two days to care for 15-18 koalas. The work completed is just the start of the vision that is coming together at Council’s Treescape at One Mile Beach and the recently pledged $3 million dollars in funding for the hospital and care facility, will see the development of a sustainable tourism enterprise which will eventually sustainably fund the care of sick and injured koalas in Port Stephens. Ron Land Secretary of Port

Stephens Koalas told News Of The Area, “in 2013 we had 160 koalas come into care, in 2017 that number was reduced to 60, with 140 recorded deaths in the last 5 years.” He believes our koala population is in crisis with only 400 left in the wild. Kate Washington Member for Port Stephens told News Of The Area, “From the time when I first spoke with Port Stephens Koalas to make an initial plan and to see what they have achieved, with the funding I secured is amazing, and I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the future.” Ms Washington believes that it is facilities like this which will ensure our grandkids can see koalas in the wild. It is a strong investment in our future both ecologically and environmentally. “I am enormously grateful to the hard working Port Stephens Koalas volunteers,” she said. The work to date has been in the majority funded by a $124,000 grant from the State Government attained through Kate Washington and a further $13,283 from Meryl Swanson MP.

Confused about the expectations around presentation and the sales process? The 3 common beliefs below can lead to frustration for the seller, prospective buyers, and the agent: 1. I love my home style and everyone else will too! We all have our own unique home style, however the more outlandish your taste, the less attractive your property could be to buyers, who may be mentally calculating the cost to replace decor . When it comes to selling your property, the more neutral your colour scheme, the better. 2. This property is a home, not a show-piece! It is difficult when you have a family to keep a home “viewing ready” at all times, but presentation is very important. Mess or uncleanliness can quickly turn buyers off. 3. I promise I’ll clean-up & remove all junk lying around the yard after the property is SOLD. Most buyers can’t see past rubbish lying around & they will see it as their potential problem. They are considering what happens if you don’t take it with you? You don’t want buyers lasting memory of your property to be the items they may have to remove upon arrival.

Dear Jasminda,

Premier Visit to Port Stephens Dear News Of The Area

I NOTE NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has chosen to hold the next Liberal State Council meeting in beautiful Port Stephens. The Premier should be commended for her courage (given that), three years ago her government sold off core koala habitat to a local developer, yet they still

haven’t fixed their self-declared ‘mistake’. Three years ago residents in Williamtown were told of serious PFAS contamination, yet Berejiklian’s government still hasn’t banned the toxic chemicals. More than three years ago her government promised to ‘fully duplicate’ Nelson Bay Road, yet instead, all we are getting is a single roundabout

upgrade. Four years ago ICAC Operation Spicer revealed the serious shortcomings of the former Liberal Member for Port Stephens, along with another six Liberal MPs in the Hunter region. Courageous, indeed! John McInerney Shoal Bay

High rise threatens good works Dear News Of The Area,

NELSON Bay is finally getting some action – both from Council - the Yacaaba St extension, support for the recent volunteer clean-up and an exciting new public domain plan – and from the private sector with recent approvals for two modest sized apartment buildings (3 and 6 storeys) and townhouses. But if Council approves a new DA for a 10 storey apartment building on the temporary car site at Yacaaba and Donald Sts, all this good

work will be wasted. Tower blocks of this height are not only double the current height limit but are completely out of character for Nelson Bay, as the community keeps saying loud and clear. In 2017, Council inexplicably approved a similar height tower block on Church St, and yet the crane sits idle a year later. If Council continues to allow such buildings, either on the Yacaaba St site or elsewhere in the town, it will at best only bring more holiday apartments empty for most of the year, and not the permanent

residents that we all want to see, but who want a different style and scale of housing. Towers will also block existing views, overshadow large areas and compound the parking problem. All those who care about the future of our town, and who are getting behind all the good things that are finally starting to happen, need to object to this DA. Nigel Waters Nelson Bay

I really dislike all the graffiti murals in our local area. Why can’t we just grow creeping vines up the buildings to prevent young people tagging their territory? Mr TG, Nelson Bay

Dear Mr TG, Art is such a subjective thing. For every person who loves Monet, another loves Picasso. Some people have edgy prints hanging in their home, others have out-of-proportion dolphins and frangipanis. Some people don’t like art at all and instead have 256 photos of their family members (dressed in white, staring whimsically at rock formations) hanging on their walls. Each to their own. I must admit, I’m not big on the graffiti murals, but they are certainly better than tags or some offensive scrawl that manages to combine sweet Millie from down the road with acts that would make Dr Dre blush. The one positive is that these people are trying to express themselves through the written from (though they really should learn how to spell). I love your creeping vine idea. Absolutely love it. What a shame the local council isn’t big on green space. Instead, they seem to favour glowing white multi-storey developments that will only encourage our talented local artists to spread their incoherent messages in every nook and cranny of this coastal getaway. Carpe diem, Jasminda.

‘Net’ participants show their learnt skills by playing a netball game this week, much fun was had by the girls and the parents watching.” “The feedback from out ‘Net’ program is really positive, many parents tell me that the ‘Net’ program allowed their child to know a familiar face when starting a new preschool or school.” “It was great to see so many people use the ‘active kids vouchers’ and enrol children in a sport that may not of been financially possible for some families before,” she said.
