DUBBO CITY LIFE Comment by TIM PANKHURST MANAGING EDITOR

WHERE do we come from?

I USED to write a column every 12 months or so in this newspaper to answer the question: “How does Dubbo Photo News happen each week?” I’d write an explanation at least every year in our early years because many people couldn’t quite understand how we could put together such an informative, colourful and packed newspaper – and then give it away for free. I haven’t had to write it for a while, but enough people have asked our staff or me in the past month or so that I’d say I’m overdue for another such column. It’s not surprising that many current Dubbo region residents don’t know the answer. The latest Census revealed significant turnover in population in the past five years – former residents have moved on, and new residents have come to the area who have never seen a free pick-meup paper before. In the world of newspapers, the norm for a so-called “community newspaper” is to carry up to 90 per cent (sometimes more) advertising, leaving little space for stories, photographs and other content. When we invented Dubbo Photo News, we decided to make it a “pick-up” paper to overcome the wastage of many free papers that get delivered to homes but are then thrown into the recycling unread. With Dubbo Photo News, you have the option. If you want it, pick one up. If you don’t want one, then don’t pick it up. Simple! Because we overcame that wastage, we were able to have a better balance between advertising content and other content. The other side of the coin for a pick-up paper is that we have to give you as many reasons as possible to actually pick it up. And 12 years later, I’m satisfied we’ve

you can donate a toy, a few dollars or just watch the parade,” Jennifer added. Both the Salvation Army and the Dubbo Rescue Squad will benefit from the day. If you want to ride, or just go along to have a look and perhaps donate, assemble at the Dubbo Visitor Information Centre car park from 9am for a 10am start. The parade will finish at the Church Street Rotunda where the club members will hand over the toys to the Salvation Army, before their ride out to Narromine Golf Club. Well done to the club – it’s always great to watch the parade through the main street area of Dubbo at this time of year.

achieved that – well and truly. We had to increase our circulation to 13,000 copies a few months ago to keep up with the increasing demand for Dubbo Photo News. We’re a business. We need money to pay for wages and printing and all the other day to day expenses that most businesses have to pay for. So how do we pay for it? You can thank our advertisers. They are our sole source of income. All the advertising you see in this newspaper is paying for 13,000 copies to be picked up for free each week. We can’t say this often enough: Please support our advertisers whenever you can. Without them, we wouldn’t be here, and you wouldn’t be able to enjoy your weekly good read!

Ulysses Club’s annual Toy Run this Saturday HERE’S a great event for Saturday shoppers to enjoy in Dubbo’s main street. Jennifer Humphries, who is President of the Dubbo & Western Plains Ulysses Branch, has been in touch to remind everyone that

they’re having their annual Toy Run this Saturday, December 9 – and they’d love as many riders as possible to participate. “Everyone is eagerly anticipating their Christmas celebrations and catching up with family and friends. For those of us in the Ulysses Club and wider motorcycling community, it’s also an opportunity to help others to make this happen by donating toys to The Salvation Army for distribution to local families,” Jennifer explained. “Our annual Toy Run is on again and we would like to invite you to participate in this fun event with us. “To participate in the parade, you will need a roadworthy and registered motorcycle, and of course a motorcycle licence, a gold coin donation and a toy or two. “We are also running a raffle with a range of prizes to be drawn after a short social ride to Narromine Golf Club. Barbecue lunch will be available for purchase if you are feeling a little hungry,” she said. “Even if you don’t have a motorcycle, come along to the Visitor Information Centre or the Church Street Rotunda where

CHRISTMAS lights in Dubbo are all ablaze and arguably the best known of those lights for the past 29 years has been at the home of locals Graham and Margaret Johnston at 3 Lakeland Drive. Each year the Johnstons add more and more to their very Christmassy home, which brings a lot of joy to both young and old. They also invite visitors to their display to drop a small donation into the ‘tin’ and then all the money collected is donated to Orana Early Intervention. This year, the Johnstons are adding another attraction to their home’s Christmas display – for one night only! Sing Australia will be singing carols on their front lawn this coming Monday, December 11, at 8pm for about half an hour. So now you have a double reason to go along and enjoy!

Some more overdue photos AS I mentioned last week, a glitch with photo files from some events over the past month or two has meant some social events we’ve attended haven’t appeared in the paper as yet. We’re doing some more catching up this week. If your event is one of those, our apologies again for the delay publishing. - Until next week, Keep Smiling!

ON more than one occasion this year, there was just too many things to choose from: to do. Choices, about seeing a show, attending a festival, dropping in on a pop-up market by the river, on the main street or after dark; dining out on Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, local produce, fine dining cuisine; seeing a movie at the Westview Drive-in (!!), a full-length ballet, an opera in the great outdoors, join or watch a lantern parade; have coffee in the park with classic cars, drive over to Wellington to join in the festivities there, or Stuart Town, Narromine, Ballimore or Mumbil, or run in the mud, covered in glow-in-the-dark stuff or sprint through a zoo; or paddle the Macquarie from Wellington to Narromine, fish alongside a couple of thousand other enthusiasts at Burrendong, or cycle to Canberra, Melbourne or Sydney, or on a two-wheel tour around the region. We could fly to Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Newcastle and Sydney, non-stop, to explore those playgrounds or launch ourselves on into the world from there. What’s listed above doesn’t even infer or recall half of what 2017 has gifted Dubbo residents for choice, to connect with our community, share in some fun, support a good cause and grow with the next phase of our city which feels all grown up. Inevitably none of it comes easy, and much of it is fuelled by volunteer power. Dubbo and Wellington both have volunteers on tap – community-minded people driven to see the region progress. While our metro cousins may still consider anyone living over the mountains as straw-chewing hicks, we’re not the ones squeezed into ramshackle, semi-detached mansion-valued housing, commuting for hours in traffic or on a train in a city where the cost of a good coffee inches closer to $10. We’re living a lifestyle that must surely only be found in a Goldilocks Zone and it’s one of our greatest assets. Services are ample and there’s not a lot we could be wanting for. (If there is, and it’s a question for council, then we’ll ask them on your behalf – see our Council Watch page for details.) Council has been in the news a lot this year, with the end of amalgamation, the election campaign and vote, the installation of a new council and mayor, who are blazing new trails at every turn, raising some eyebrows but getting quite a bit done – bringing a cultural change of community consultation, and we’ve bid farewell to council’s GM of 13 years. Where to from here? In just three weeks, 2018 arrives. A royal wedding and a Russian World Cup will keep the headlines busy, as will American politics and North Korea’s chest beating. Closer to home, it’s probably wise we just doing keep the same – forging ahead to make Dubbo the capital of regional NSW.

TEAM WORK

Motivating a million fishers By JOHN RYAN

WHEN Matt Hansen wandered into the “Harry Potter” room at parliament house in Sydney’s Macquarie Street, his first thought was “Wow”. And it wasn’t just about the three-storied terraced library which houses thousands upon thousands of official public records, it was also about the importance of the occasion that had led him to this place. “I went on behalf of Inland Waterways and with Craig Copeland, the Ozfish CEO, to work out how we can partner with Landcare NSW (LNSW) and Local Land Services (LLS) so we can look at organising and motivating the one million recreational fishers in NSW,” Mr Hansen said. “The huge success of our River Repair Bus and our re-snagging programs shows us that local fishers can make a big impact when it comes to helping fix up our rivers by creating new habitat to help our native fish to breed, as well as improving the biodiversity of the riparian zones along the river banks so that vegetation filters the water running into the river and other co-benefits. Landcare NSW chair Rob Dulhunty says the future is exciting. “Having OzFish come and have a look at us, playing in the sandpit together, that was important and I just can’t believe how excited I

am about the fact that the synergies are all there. So to have the potential to have another million natural resource managers out there doing great work to protect their patch, which is fishing, it’s core business for us,” Mr Dulhunty said. “Rec fishers joining with Landcare is a very, very neat fit. Now we just have to work out what we need to do to get the partnership to function and create the winwin which is what Landcare’s always been good at – creating opportunity or the ability for the community to get engaged. That’s really our core business so I’m re-

ally delighted with what these guys have come along and told us and that they want to partner with us – I’m very excited about it,” he continued. Agriculture minister Niall Blair was incredibly enthusiastic about the thought of fishers joining forces with Landcare. “We know that fishing’s all about habitat – what we use for bait and where we look for those fish is all based on habitat. A healthy ecosystem means healthy fish, it means good fishing, so it just goes hand in hand,” Mr Blair told Dubbo Photo News. “We see a lot of fishing groups

that are involved in habitat restoration and restocking programs, it’s a natural fit with Landcare and something we need to work together on,” Mr Blair said. “That partnership between recreational fishers and Landcare is one of the most important partnerships that we could see for the future. “I did my work experience in the 1990s with Landcare when I was doing my degree in horticulture, and I was interested in native vegetation and the role the plants play in the environment, so to be part of the re-energising and the re-awakening of Landcare is pretty special – not just because of my day job, but because I believe in it,” he said. Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson chairs the Parliamentary Friends of Landcare; he believes the community will want to see such a partnership happen. “I think there’s a grassroots movement about getting back to nature and looking after our environment and I think it’s exciting to see,” Mr Anderson said. “I was talking to Craig (Copeland) about OzFish and what they’re doing about looking to build healthy environments for fish to thrive and prosper; I think it’s really important for recreational fishers to partner up with Landcare. It’s real hand in glove stuff and I think it’s a great initiative.”

Mendooran residents call for bus service to Dubbo A MENDOORAN resident has written to Transport NSW requesting a daily or three-timesa-week bus service from Coonabarabran to Dubbo. “There’s houses out this way for 150,000 but no transport. There’s a lot of elderly people that have no choice to visit doctors. I can travel to Mudgee once a week for groceries but the Country Link service comes back this way at 11.15pm only. Sundays and winter are both very difficult,” the resident said. Transport NSW reps were in Dubbo this week consulting on a bus route between Bourke and Dubbo. “It’s not much good driving over for a health appointment when ‘not driving’ is a requirement afterward your treatment,” Coonabarabran resident Donna Burton said.

DUBBO SNAP Nice! One Dubbo school has put this sign up in the drop-off area near the front gates. It’s a nice thought.

LONG SERVICE

WHO AM I?

Giving back: Dubbo printer completes 51 years of service By NATALIE HOLMES DOUG BACK was just 16 when he started his printing apprenticeship on November 25, 1966. Fifty-one years later and the loyal Dubbo Printing Works employee has marked his anniversary, announcing his retirement will begin on December 22, the last day of trading for the year. Doug jokes that he had a ‘schoolies weekend’, leaving school on Friday afternoon and starting his new job on Monday morning. His employer was Bert Grace whose daughter Janet Williams and son-in-law David Williams now run the business. It was going for an impressive 67 years in the same building which was originally a house extended and repurposed over the years. “I have only ever worked for one family. They kept paying me and I kept coming back,” Doug joked. “I asked Mr Grace if he needed an apprentice and he said he was interested.” After he passed Year 10 with flying colours, Doug commenced his appointment. “In those days you could get an apprenticeship at anything, walk in anywhere and get a start. A lot of my mates went to the railway. I was always good at English and spelling so it seemed like a logical move.” At that time, 80 per cent of printing was done manually using a hand and machine compositor, hand-setting headlines and using linotype for the rest. The biggest fear for workers was poisoning from the lead ingots which were used to make letters. The heat of the bubbling lead furnaces was also a dangerous aspect of the workplace. One of the main print jobs that came along in the ‘60s was flyers for school fetes. “We used to turn them out by the thousands,” Doug said. Occasionally, he’d see a wrong font and would need to restart the job from the beginning. Another ongoing commitment

has been doing all the printing work for local politicians – from John Mason who was the MP when Doug started through to the current Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant. In his time at Dubbo Printing Works, Doug has been the foreman, production manager and is now responsible for quotes and estimates. The roles around him have changed too. There were 18 staff members when Doug started, including a full-time typewriter mechanic. These days, there are dedicated printers, graphic artists and a book binder/finisher. When he considers the industry’s great transformation, Doug says the change has been rapid. “From handset to composite printing, it’s been a quick revolutionary change. From hand-setting everything to sitting at a computer using CTP (Computer To Plate) technology – printing has revolutionised itself from the old days of the Heidelberg platinum letter press to offset printing.” Doug believes that the world

wide web has also affected the printing industry. “The internet has killed a lot of things. “Doing things in small lots is fine but people’s idea of complexity changes with cost. We still get a lot of wedding invitations and return thanks.” In an environment where printing is paramount, Doug believes that paper will be around for a while yet. “At the start of the millennium, they said we’d be a paperless society. But the paperless office, I am yet to see.” In adapting to change, Doug describes the experience as ‘a learning curve but you can either sink or swim’. He chose the latter, with business owner David Williams describing the depth of his dedication. “After all these years, you could count on one hand the sick days Doug has had. As far as punctuality, he’s first here in the morning and last to leave at night. He’s very reliable and very dil-

igent,” David told Dubbo Photo News, lamenting Doug’s coming retirement. “He’ll leave a hole, it’ll be hard to replace that expertise. There’s nothing he can’t do. He can run everything from the guillotine to the press.” While the company has begun the transfer to its new Macquarie St premises, Doug will remain in Brisbane St until he officially leaves work. He is also proud of his loyalty and has enjoyed his time immensely. “I prefer to serve the place I’ve been for 51 years than to go somewhere else,” he explains. “I will miss coming to work.” Doug’s wife of 42 years (another milestone he is proud of) Christine is also set to retire from her job as a school assistant. He is looking forward to travelling, spending time with the grandkids, fishing, bowling, prospecting and watching motorsports. And after all this time, does Doug still like stationery? “I’ve been looking at paper for 51 years,” he laughed.

WESTERN NSW and Far West local health districts are two of nine rural and regional areas in NSW that will have new palliative care specialists as part of a $3.06 million investment to improve the care and choices for patients. The funding is part of the NSW Government’s biggest ever palliative care investment of $100 million over the next four years, including $17.4 million in 201718 – on top of the approximately $210 million spent on these services each year. The 2017-18 Budget also committed $795,000 for two rural palliative care relief positions to support specialists and GPs in hospital and in the community. Where they will be located has not been announced.

The survey results were released to mark International Day of People with Disability on December 3. The survey also said 63 per cent indicated that the NDIS had helped them with social, community and civic participation.

HISTORIC HOUSE

Grand old home’s mysterious heritage By NATALIE HOLMES THE surrounding lush green lawn at 7 Avalon Place pays homage to the past history of the grand old home of ‘Regand Park’, which once provided milk to the growing community of Dubbo. “It was the dairy farm homestead,” owner Sally Coddington explained. “It was all farmland. There was nothing else here.” The home, which dates back to the 19th century, takes pride of place in an area which now bears its name on the banks of the Macquarie River. But when Sally first saw Regand Park, it was a tired and rundown shadow of its former self, the

What’s known and not known about the home “Regand Park in Lower Macquarie Street, South Dubbo, is typical of fine brick homes built by wellto-do townspeople who fancied a small country estate,” Marion Dormer wrote in her 1981 book ‘Dubbo To The Turn Of The Century’. “It is thought to have been built for James Buckley Brown*, a prominent citizen and local land owner, c.1884. At one time it was the home of the MacManamy family, followed by the Daniels,” she wrote. “Solid Georgian brick in style, with decorative quoins, Regand Park is today part of a dairying property,” the book. *James Buckley Brown’s obituary, published in 1928, bears no reference to him ever residing at Regand Park. The mystery of Regand Park remains...

only building in the middle of a paddock. “The house was sitting here on its own, it was dilapidated. The ceiling was falling in, the windows were broken and there was no verandah.” However, Sally saw beyond the neglect when she visited the area and bought the house in 2006. “I came here to look at blocks of land with my daughter,” she said. “I couldn’t believe what had happened to the beautiful old house. They were so busy farming that it was just let go. It was just one of those things.” Sally had previously renovated the Eulandool Homestead at Toongi and soon turned her attention to Regand Park, lovingly restoring the once-forgotten beauty to its former glory, taking great care to consider its vintage before beginning any work. “It was sad to see it neglected but it was structurally sound,” Sally said of embarking on her journey. Renovations commenced in 2007 with BLD Constructions and were completed in 2010 by Mal Donald. “I like to restore a building to its original state – modernising it just takes the soul out it. So everything I did was geared to make it fit in. “You have to modernise it so that it fits in with modern-day life but without destroying the home’s heart.” Before her journey started, Sally researched the various elements of the home. “I know that it’s one of the oldest homes in Dubbo. No-one can tell me exactly how old it is or who actually built it, but it was built between 1860 and 1880. It’s been difficult to get a lot of history on it.” Sally believes that the regal old home has ties with Scotland because it bears a very distinctive

decorative Scottish thistle emblem on the roof. Other features include dragon wrought iron, Italianate columns, original brick fireplaces, two chimneys and 13”6’ ceilings. Sally’s study of the home’s history went into great detail to ensure accurate preservation. “I researched the wallpaper because it had holes in it and discovered that the former owners had renovated 50 years after the home was built because that was the age of the wallpaper.” Sally decided not to replace this element, instead painting the home’s interior in heritage colours. “I didn’t know what colour the walls were originally but these colours fit the age of the house.” Regand Park includes a sewing room, office, formal dining room, reception room and a stranger’s room which allowed the owners to host an unknown guest without giving them access to the rest of the house. “All old houses had a stranger’s room,” Sally says. “It could have been the office. The Southern

wing would also have been staff quarters.” As well, there are chandeliers, decorative cornices, ornate moulding and mottled glass in some of the doors. The bathroom has its original tiles and there are 13 external doors. “It’s certainly a beautiful home and it’s really special because there’s nothing else like it in Dubbo. “I have had so many people who say that they have lived here or been here before. There is some-

thing to do with this particular place, everyone knows it. People used to walk through here to the river.” Although she loves the place, Sally has made the decision to sell the large home which is surrounded by manicured gardens. “It’s a lot of work for me on my own, it’s such a big area to maintain,” she explained. “It won’t be easy to leave. But it’s been a pleasure and an honour to put it back the way it was. It was a real privilege and I loved doing it.”

No container recycling collection point for Dubbo

HEALTHY Rivers Ambassador Melissa Gray became a nationally recognised warrior for river health after she organised the first Healthy Rivers Roadshow in Dubbo back in September. That spark has seen similar community town hall meetings convened across the Murray-Darling Basin and has the irrigation community sitting up and taking notice. She says the series of media exposés by programs such as the ABC’s 4Corners, illustrating alleged water stealing on a massive scale, has penetrated mainstream consciousness. Now she’s on the warpath again, this time taking issue with the commonwealth government’s bid to take even more water out of the Macquarie River. “The Northern Basin Review by the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) proposes taking 70 billion litres from the Gwydir and Macquarie Rivers – this proposal was ratified at the Minister’s Council by the Basin Water Ministers of Queensland, NSW, Victoria, ACT and South Australia in June 2017,” Melissa told Dubbo Photo News. “The Gwydir is referred to as a

‘closed system’, which it never was historically, but the current level of extraction from the Gwydir means that, unfortunately, the waters don’t make it through the Gwydir wetlands into the Darling River system anymore. “There is a danger that the Macquarie River is also being referred to as a closed system – it is not. The water the Barwon receives from the Macquarie is of high quality as it has been filtered by the aquatic vegetation as it flows through the Macquarie Marshes,” she explained. Mel says Brewarrina and Bourke rely on the clean Macquarie water arriving in the spring, all the more important to the Barwon/Darling as other northern basin rivers are fed by summer monsoonal falls, and the Macquarie is fed in winter. “The Macquarie Marshes is an internationally significant water bird breeding site, and is protected under various treaties including the Ramsar Convention, meaning Australia has a legal as well as moral obligation to maintain the integrity of the Marshes,” said Melissa Gray (pictured, inset). “Only a core 10 per cent of the Marshes can be maintained with current environmental water hold-

ings during dry times. “No new scientific data was collected from the Macquarie River for the Northern Basin Review. Instead, the MDBA used modelling and referred to cap factors to come up with their decision that 28 billion litres of river water could be removed from the Macquarie with no ill effect to river health,” she said. Opponents say the modelling which claimed that 4/4 of the flow

Solar powered charging station for Dubbo College South Campus

Emergency exercise postponed due to severe weather risks

STUDENTS at Dubbo College South Campus now have the opportunity to charge their mobile phones at morning tea and lunch times, with a specialised solar-powered charging station set up near the school canteen. The innovation was researched, designed and developed by Year 10 science students, under the guidance of science teacher Joshy Alexander and TAS teacher Peter Dickson. The project was funded through a $2000 STEM grant as part of the Fair Education program. A range of Dubbo College projects were funded under the program, with further STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) funding available for the next two years. The school says it strictly supervises the use of mobile phones.

THE planned emergency exercise at Dubbo Airport on Saturday, December 2, was postponed due to a severe weather event in Dubbo. Police, Dubbo Regional Council, and senior members of Dubbo’s Emergency Services decided that the risk to volunteers could not be justified for exercise purposes. The exercise, which has been designed to test the response capabilities of Dubbo Emergency Services to respond to a major life-threatening occurrence at the airport, has been postponed to St. Patrick’s Day next year (Saturday, March 17).

IN HIS OWN WORDS

Mundine to launch memoir next Monday By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

NO matter how much of an influence a person has been on a society, they have heroes too. For Nyunggai Warren Mundine AO, who will be in Dubbo on Thursday, December 14, to launch his new memoir, one of those people is another Indigenous legend with ties to the city: Bill Ferguson. In his new memoir called ‘Warren Mundine in Black + White’, he writes: “The AAPA was one of several Aboriginal activist movements in the 1900s. Another was the Aborigines’ Progressive Association (APA) founded in Dubbo by William (Bill) Ferguson, a trade unionist and Labor Party official. The APA developed a ten-point plan for citizens’ rights, a long-range plan to elevate Aboriginal people to citizenship and equality, and address socioeconomic disadvantage, operated by the Commonwealth.” For his entire life, Warren has been fighting racism and discrimination. He is one of Australia’s most recognised, respected and revered activists and agents for improving his people’s standing, and has been an adviser to Prime Ministers and more. In politics, Warren rose to become the National President of the Australian Labor Party. He was appointed to Indigenous advisory bodies under two Labor and three Liberal Prime Ministers, and most recently he chaired the Prime Minister’s Indigenous Advisory Council from 2013 to 2016. His public life is well documented but the memoir goes far back before his own history. “It’s a story about what made me who I am today – the people, the ideas, the experiences that all came together to make me who I am. So it’s been six decades in the making. But even longer than that. “The book itself reaches all the way back to the ancient influences of Bundjalung and Gumbaynggirr kinship systems, through to the first contact between my ancestors and the first Europeans to make their way to northern NSW, through to my family’s experience during the near century of segregation under the NSW Aborigines Protection Act, through my early years in country NSW and then Western Sydney, and my decades working in community, in business and then in politics, through to today where someone like me – who spent the

first 13 years of my life living ng under segregation – advises Prime Ministers ers and represents Australia at the UN and OECD,” CD,” Mundine said at the books premier in Sydney ney last month. When he moved to Dubbo bbo in 1993 he watched his parents engage in community activities and wanted to follow w suit. “I was always looking out for things to do to assist the community in Dubbo ubbo in sport and in the arts... My first community unity involvement in Dubbo was with the Orana na Googars Rugby League Club, as secretary, taking minutes of the meetings and ensuring the he admin, games, sponsorships and all the other ther aspects of a busy club were kept in order.” r.” Mundine founded the Janggara ggara Dance Association, which ich was a group for Aboriginall children who wanted to learn arn traditional Aboriginal dance ance and cultural activities. es. The following is an excerpt from his memoir of how that came about: “When my mates and I would meet at the local pub, we’d often talk about how wonderful it would be if Dubbo had its own Aboriginal dance company. ny. But it was all talk and no action. One day I put $50 on the he bar. “Right, let’s do it,” I said. “We’ll put an ad in the paper and kick k this thing off... over 50 kids turned up p at the community hall to register. Wee took down their details and told them to come back the following Thursday night. ht. Then I rang the Bangarra Dance Company ny in Sydney and told them I wanted some videos deos to help teach some kids in Dubbo... “In the end we built a nicee little community dance company and I was president of it for two years.”

New campaign to save country lives on local roads

MINISTER for Police and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant (pictured) announced this week the first ever comprehensive road safety education campaign to target regional NSW in an all-out effort to spread the critical message that too many country people are dying on the state’s roads. “Saving Lives On Country Roads” aims to highlight the hidden crisis unfolding almost daily on the state’s regional road network, a crisis which is devastating families and local communities. “Here in Dubbo 48 people have lost their lives and nearly 346 were seriously injured in the past five years from 2012 to 2016. This has to stop,” Grant said. The campaign is being run in local newspapers and other media.

IT’S not often that classic cars can give back to their local community, but last weekend all brands and all models owned by a diverse group of people handed over a lot of cash to Dubbo’s Make-A-Wish volunteers. It was the last rev of the engines at Dubbo’s Cars and Coffee outings for 2017, with organiser Owen de Carle handing over a $6000 cheque to help grant wishes to very sick children. Karen McMullen is one of the local Make-A-Wish volunteers; she said the cheque was incredibly appreciated by her crew because they know how much it will be valued by little lives who face hardship on a daily basis. “Six thousand dollars, that is amazing! That will grant so many wishes to children that have life-threatening and serious medical conditions,” Karen said. “We do have some local children who are waiting for wishes currently, so $6000 will go such a long way towards giving these children hope, strength and joy.” Karen said she’s never had the slightest connection with classic vehicles, hot rods or street machines, and that this partnership had opened her eyes to a social subculture she didn’t realise existed. She is full of praise for the Cars and Coffee event, it’s organisers, and the

people who show up to socialise their common interests on the first Sunday of each month in Dubbo’s Victoria Park. “I just think it’s an amazing concept and really good for Dubbo. To see the passion and peoples’ faces as each vehicle drives by is really quite fascinating, and the money and time that’s been put into the vehicles is amazing,” Karen said. That passion is something that amazes organiser Owen de Carle too. “Every month there’s new cars and new people here, and with the amount of spectators that are coming along just for a look now, (this event) seems to have taken on a bit of a life of its own,” Owen told Dubbo Photo News. “It’s just a very social morning, very laid back and casual, and I think that’s what everyone was looking for,” Owen said. “Peoples’ generosity amazes me too. We ask for a gold coin donation but there’s a lot of guys who’ll put 10 or 20 bucks in – every time they come in – and it’s all for a great cause. “The Make-A-Wish guys do a fantastic job and everyone who comes through is more than happy to help out.”

WAR MEMORIAL

Pipers honoured with invitation to Last Post ceremony in Canberra By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

THE Dubbo & District Pipe Band (D&DPB) will take centre stage this Saturday, December 9, at the Ceremony of the Last Post at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra. Personally invited by the memorial’s director Brendan Nelson, who heard the band play at a charity function in Dubbo in August this year, rehearsals have been constant since. “He said publically on the night he’d like to invite us, then the invitation came through,” D&DPB pipe major Gerard Cahill explained to Dubbo Photo News. “Eleven players between the ages of 20 and 65 will be going down. We have to attend a rehearsal on the Friday and another on the Saturday morning before our performance at 4.45 on the Saturday,” he said. “The main tune we’ll be playing is called ‘Flowers of the Forest’. It commemorates a battle between the English and Scottish in the 16th century. It’s probably the most famous song often played at military memorial services,” he said. In Canberra, the band will be performing during the memorial service marking the 75th an-

Hand Made Art Markets @ WPCC

Emergency exercise postponed for safety

By GREG MARGINSON WITH a month to go until Christmas, a diverse range of people visited the Hand Made Art Market at Western Plains Cultural Centre on Saturday, November 25. Recently returned singer Katie Thorne entertained the crowd, cricket was being played on the oval and market stalls were spread around the outdoor parts of the Centre from the Community Arts area forecourt, around the oval at the back of the Centre. Left: Anna Minney with her stall of handmade jewellery and more.

THE planned emergency exercise at Dubbo Airport on Saturday, December 2, was postponed due to a severe weather event in Dubbo. Police, Dubbo Regional Council, and senior members of Dubbo’s Emergency Services decided that the risk to volunteers could not be justified for exercise purposes. The exercise, which has been designed to test the response capabilities of Dubbo Emergency Services to respond to a major life-threatening occurrence at the airport, has been postponed to St. Patrick’s Day next year (Saturday, March 17).

Senior Campus appoints new leaders DUBBO COLLEGE has named its student leaders for 2018 including school captains Daniel Ramirez and Hanna Mackie. Daniel was school captain at Delroy Campus in 2016. Hannah aims to join the army following the HSC. Vice-captains are Tyran Tuckey who wants to study global and international studies, and Swazi Sharma who will attend the National Youth Science Forum at the Australian National University in Canberra in January along with arts captain Robin Hall. Robin will tour to the UK with the DET’s Symphony Orchestra in 2018. Fellow arts captain, Olivia Kirkman, hopes to further her Indigenous studies. Sports captains Hamish Grant and Milla Ross will lead the College in the 2018 Astley Cup.

IN BRIEF

New coach services proposed for Bourke, Brewarrina and Dubbo MEMBER for Barwon Kevin Humphries has called for the local community to provide their ideas for a new coach service which will operate between Bourke and Brewarrina, and Dubbo. People from Bourke, Brewarrina and towns along the way will be able to travel safely and comfortably to Dubbo, Mr Humphries said, spend up to four hours in town and return home later that afternoon. Starting next year as a trial, new day-return services between the centres will be included on the NSW TrainLink coach timetable. The survey is available on the Transport for NSW website at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/dubbocoachsurvey

With the first commercially-grown poppies set to be harvested in the local area, NATALIE HOLMES asked TPI Enterprises director of agriculture Michael Long for the lowdown on the new crop on the block. TPI is an Australian-owned poppy processing company. Can you describe the extent of commercial poppy growth in the Dubbo area? 2017 is the first year the production of poppies has been legal in NSW. TPI has one commercial crop in the Dubbo area this season. And a number of other crops further south in NSW. We have a lot of interest for next year in the Narromine, Dubbo, Mendooran, Moree and Liverpool Plains areas. What is TPI Enterprises’ involvement in this? TPI is licensed by the NSW Government to enter into commercial contracts with growers to produce poppies. TPI works with the grower

and their agronomist to advise on how to maximise production and yield. TPI harvests the poppies and transports them to its factory in Melbourne where they are processed into raw narcotic material ready for further processing into pharmaceutical-grade pain medications. This is the first year of poppy growing in NSW. The NSW Government enacted legislation to allow the growing of poppies under strict conditions. Are there still restrictions in terms of who can grow poppies commercially? Growers can discuss their farming system with TPI. If their soil types, cropping history

and past chemical usage, irrigation infrastructure and/or rainfall are suitable for poppy production, TPI will contract with the farmer to grow the poppies. Once the contract is entered into, the grower follows the NSW DPI protocols to obtain a license to grow poppies. This license is valid for three years. Why are these in place? TPI evaluates each farm on its merits to ensure it can grow poppies successfully. The NSW Government has protocols in place to ensure licensing is in accordance with the legislation governing how poppies are to be grown

in NSW. What does poppy growing add to the local agricultural landscape? Poppies are an exciting new winter cropping alternative for growers looking for crop rotation options, good returns and the challenge of learning the agronomy of growing a new crop. For what purpose are they grown? Poppies are grown to supply pain-killing medications such as morphine and codeine. Typical uses include palliative care and treatment of moderate to severe pain. How much of the crop is then used domestically or shipped overseas? Once the poppies have been processed into raw narcotic material, it is then further processed into pharmaceutical-grade pain medication by our customers in diverse international locations, or by TPI in its recently acquired pharmaceutical plant in Norway. Are there any challenges in terms of maintenance during growth or harvesting, particularly compared with

other crops? Like any crop, close attention needs to be paid to prior chemical use, seed bed preparation, weed control, pest management, plant nutrition and moisture requirements. TPI organises the harvesting with specially-designed harvesting equipment. What is their market value? TPI pays the farmer based on how many kilograms of raw narcotic material they produce per hectare. Each farmer will evaluate the expected gross margin and make a decision on what crop to plant accordingly. TPI’s experience is that poppies give an attractive return to the grower compared to other winter cropping alternatives.

Manna from heaven WHERE the hell was all this rain when we needed it a few months back, when it would have been in time to save the huge acreage of winter crops that are such a major driver for the Dubbo economy. Having said that, it’s great to see this new rain hanging around for a few days, and not so long after our last downpours – it should be a boon for summer crops. I’ve spent a lot of time in the past few years trying to get industrial hemp legalised for human consumption and that legislation was passed last month, something the industry was unable to make happen in the past 30 years, so thanks to Member for Parkes Mark Coulton for your relentless support on this issue to drive it through down in Canberra. It helps to have a former grassroots farmer who knows how important these sorts of things are. Hemp is normally grown as a summer crop and with long range

projections predicting that much of south east Australia could lose up to 50 per cent of its winter rainfall, which will instead drop during summer months, farmers and farming economies will need crops such as hemp which they can plant and harvest with their existing machinery. The past decade has shown

us that many traditionally “safe” areas are now considered marginal when it comes to winter grains, so if we lose huge swaths of our wheat areas, we’ll need profitable small grained summer crops to swing in to. By having hemp legalized for food, entire new markets can be opened up. On the processing side of things, the fibre from the hemp stalks can be turned into thousands of products that need close-to-carbon-fibre strength but that weigh much less than steel; or paper replacement products of far better quality than what can be obtained from trees... but that’s another story – and I’m working on that.

Road and rain danger A MATE from the Hammond Street area in south called me up on Saturday evening to say he’d just tossed 46mm out of his rain gauge, so it’s no surprise that the general deluge has caused plenty

of damage to infrastructure and upset all sorts of plans across the region. I had some people from out west coming to Dubbo, but they couldn’t get here because of the flooding out their way. Another lady I know sent me a picture of a dangerous wash away on the Old Dubbo Road near Geurie. She’d posted it online too, to warn people travelling in that area of the danger.

Fatal roads A B-DOUBLE roll-over on the Newell Highway near Tooraweenah claimed the life of a 34-year-old truck driver on Saturday, with police closing the Newell

Highway and working in wet conditions to recover the wreckage and investigate the causes of the crash. No other vehicle was involved in the incident. Police report the truck was travelling southbound towards Gilgandra at the time, about 44km north of Gilgandra. Police say initial inquiries suggest the truck veered to the incorrect side of the highway before leaving the road, travelling down a steep bank before ending up in a paddock. This is happening too many times. Our roads which supply us with the bulk of our daily necessities are also one of the nation’s biggest killers, and thanks to such a variety of factors

7 DAYS • ANALYSIS OF THE WEEK’S NEWS Airport rain attack INCLEMENT weather claimed a more static victim over the weekend and that’s the Dubbo Regional Airport. A coordinated emergency exercise that was scheduled was postponed by organisers because police, council and senior members of Dubbo’s emergency services decided that the risk to volunteers could not be justified for exercise purposes. The exercise had been designed to test the response capabilities of local emergency services and, despite the event being postponed until next year, those in charge hastened to assure everyone that they’re aware disasters and life-threatening events can occur in any weather conditions, and that there’ll always be a suitable response.

Wet marketers, no way DUBBO’S Farmer Markets are always a glorious morning in the park behind the Visitors’ Centre when the sun’s shining, but according to Amy Cole, thank Goodness there’s a wet weather plan to locate the stalls under the RSL high-rise car park. She brought a trailer of peas in

the pod and sweet peas from Mt Canobolas this time around and says the load was all but sold. “It’s very important to have a wet weather venue. I’ve been out in the rain several times at markets and sometimes people come, sometimes they don’t, but if there’s somewhere they can go that’s undercover, they can come knowing they won’t get wet – it’s amazing,” Amy said.

Piping the post WHEN the pipes play their haunting notes of the Last Post at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra on Saturday, to commemorate the beginning of the Battle of Buna, the air to power those pipes will be expelling itself from Dubbo lungs. The city’s District Pipe

Band will be afforded that signal honour, according to veteran bagpiper David Walker. “Following on from Brendan Nelson’s (Director of the Australian War Memorial) visit to Dubbo back in August, where we played at the function he attended, he made a point of inviting us to come and play at the Last Post ceremony they have every afternoon at the Australian War Memorial, and that’ll be this Saturday,” Mr Walker said.

“It’ll be a pretty big day because it’s the 75th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of Buna, which was one of the final battles on Papua New Guinea when the Australians succeeded in overcoming the Japanese and driving them out. “We’ll have about 12 of us down there – eight pipers and four drummers – so that’s a really well-balanced band. “It’s a huge honour. Usually that Last Post ceremony is overseen by

a lone piper,” he said. Congratulations and good luck.

OPINION & ANALYSIS LETTERS & FEEDBACK

THE TOONS’ VIEWS

On the church and same sex marriage

Editor, I feel compelled to respond to Greg Smart’s comments regarding the church and same sex marriage. His lack of knowledge and experience have led him to make some sweeping comments. He has the luxury of sitting back and stating his views openly. If I do the same, I’ll lose my job in the public service, and end up in court with a possible gaol sentence. Hence it is okay to bash the church, but as a Christian, I can not respond openly. My freedom of speech has been somewhat denied. I must respond with one hand tied behind my back. My father went off to fight in New Guinea in the last war, so that we would have our freedoms. Two thirds of his platoon never came back. As a young man, who was told to get rid of excess baggage from his “kit”, he insisted on carrying a little Bible with him. Not a regular church attender until he retired, but a real faith in the living of God. The important factor that Greg has left out is the “God” factor. He is real, not just an out-dated figment of the imagination. Let me be very clear, I’m talking about the God of the Bible. It is interesting to note that many of the great civilisations of the past rotted out morally and ethically from within, before they were overrun from without. There are physical laws that govern our universe, for example throw a stone into the air and “gravity” will cause it to return to the earth. In the same way, there are moral laws, which have natural consequences when we break them. God in His love for mankind gave us guidelines to live by, and if we ignore these, we pay a

price, both as individuals and as a nation. Things take a while, but eventually we will “reap what we sow”. As we lose our Christian roots, society becomes more fragmented and weakened. Occasionally I look at old music clips on “YouTube” for entertainment, and time again I note the positive comments about the ‘60s and ‘70s, and how people in the audience look to have more peace and contentment in their demeanour than what many have now. Yes, life was not perfect back then; I also make a generalisation. God is real! We will as individuals give an account before Him, and there will be nowhere to hide. We’ve all fallen short, but John 3:16 says it plainly: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” To believe implies action, not simply a mental acknowledgement. Now that’s real love, to love so much that you are willing to die a very painful death in order to reconcile mankind. Love is not some trumped up emotional and physical euphoria that is simply based on selfish desire. Real love is wanting the best for another in the long run, even if it costs us personally. Not fat below the surface, Australia is fast becoming bankrupt both morally and financially, and ultimately, there will be a price to pay. As for you Greg, and others, I suggest a good read of Romans chapter 1:16-32. It sums up our current generation and their attitudes. We now worship the creation rather than the creator, and God’s warning regarding alternate lifestyles is given plainly. After two recent editorials at-

tacking the church in this paper, I felt compelled to respond. To the young lady who recently wrote “that times are changing”, hence we need to get with the times, I suggest some things don’t change – including love, trust, good ethics, morals and wisdom to live life. These remain fixed for all people for all time. To deviate will ultimately cause hardship. I have been advised since writing this letter, and having a representative of my employer read it, that it may be in my interest not to submit it for publishing, hence my anonymity. A great state of affairs in a democracy with free speech! I think not! Name withheld on request, Dubbo

Real life local online success stories needed Editor, Your article about the choice between online shopping and shop-

ping at a local retail store was good (“Retailing in the Amazon jungle”, Dubbo Photo News, November 23), but yet again I feel I’m missing something. So many newspaper and magazine articles talk about the great opportunities that are out there if we set up an online store, or build an online presence, but so few articles give real, local examples of success. It’s interesting to read what local marketers have to say, and I don’t remember ever hearing a marketing person or a Public Relations person discouraging me from setting up an online store, but the people I really want to hear from are other local retailers and/or entrepreneurs who’ve done so and succeeded. Don’t take my comments as being against the expertise of marketing people, but what we all have to remember is that it’s the business people who are putting their money on the line when they

decide to go online, not the marketers who constantly tell us how great it is. I need to hear from local businesspeople – in the Dubbo region and Western NSW – who have set up an online store and succeeded. I noted in your article that one local store has both a physical store and an online store, but she states that the online store on its own is not enough to make a living. One pair of shoes sold to New York is exciting, but it is not enough to sustain a viable local business. So could I appeal through your newspaper to all those retail businesses in our region who are making money from their online stores to come forward. Could the Dubbo Photo News publish an article about them in the future, so that we can all read about real examples of success in this area? Andrew Hill, Dubbo

Thumbs up to newspapers keeping free speech alive Yvette Aubussonon nFoley OPINION

DUBBO PHOTO NEWS got a Thumbs Down last week from a reader who wrote that they “will not ever look at or pick up a Photo News again after seeing the pride march...” in our publication. Not surprisingly, other readers have read this and responded. “Thumbs down to the bigoted person who will no longer pick up DPN (Dubbo Photo News). Are you also not watching any of the news on TV who also covered the Pride March. You silly fool.” And this: “There’s a diverse LGBTIQ+ community living in Dubbo and it’s an absolute shame you lack the tolerance and decency to stand in support with them, especially its youth. They’ve done absolutely nothing to you but be a beacon of positivity.” On either side of the great divide of yes and no, passions are high, but both in my view are cause for celebration.

On a big picture scale, the fact both sides are free to express their opinions and act on them using their words, is the kind of liberty so many people on the planet have never enjoyed. Give them that freedom for the first time and it’s so foreign, it’s frightening. But this is our ‘every day’ in Dubbo and in Australia. We can take it for granted that we can openly insult our Prime Minister, for example, without fear of being arrested, tortured or disappearing forever. That’s not to say we should run amok insulting others at will, just to exercise our freedom of speech, because with great freedom comes great responsibility and responsibility looks more like compassion and tolerance or, at the very least, using good manners and having the emotional maturity to use them. As Australia rids itself of the shackles of the past, casting aside prejudice and misunderstanding according to law – but clearly, not for everyone personally – it’s the very thing the LGBTIQ+ community also seeks, not just in marriage but in every aspect of their lives.

Everyone’s the same, aren’t they? Not unlike our Edwardian ancestors corseted into a narrow maze of unspoken taboos, and laws, and mores, and expectations, and morals, and ethics and limited ways of viewing them all; the point is we just want to get on with our lives, and live them in the blink of an eye we have, as we wish to live them. Live our lives according to our faith. And while this is a non-inclusive way of living, it is a way. Live our lives according to our personal ambition. And while this is a selfish way of living, it is a way. We are lucky we have choices. So, when someone chooses not

to pick up Dubbo Photo News because they disagree with content, or what that content represents to them, because they live in Australia, it is their freedom to choose. That’s freedom flexing its muscles. Truth is something that is one of the hardest things to hear. The reader has seen Dubbo Photo News will endeavour to represent the truth and not discriminate against the LGBTQI+ community, nor the readers who cannot tolerate that community or their right to marry. While WE LOVE OUR READERS and don’t like to think we’ve done something wrong, we’d be kidding ourselves to think we’re always pleasing everybody. Still, it’s a pretty powerful thing to make the decision this particular reader has made, act upon it (though it’s a shame because they won’t ever see that their Thumbs Down went in the paper!) and then tell us about their views. It might sound very odd, but thank you. I don’t agree with you at all, but your freedom to voice your opinion, and that Dubbo Photo News will stand by your right to that

opinion – every time (unless it’s hate speech) – is a reminder that, yes, we still do live in The Lucky Country. There’s probably a couple of generations alive now who have never heard the phrase “The Lucky Country” coined by author Donald Horne, and many might disagree, but we are. Ask the people who have drifted to our shores clutching a life jacket of what life in real shackles is like. Standing by your conviction is a sign of strength. It’s also an indication that not everyone voted ‘yes’, if at all, in the Equal Marriage survey, and to think otherwise is naïve. The ‘yes’ vote has been a celebration for some and a cause of dismay for others, just as not being able to marry was a cause of dismay for some and a celebration for others. We all have our burdens. And opinions. Trust a little old lady to sum it up best from the perspective of a long life lived well: “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” Those were the words of Mother Teresa.

Looking for balance on local rivers ❱❱ Continued from page 11

and a cold water curtain in Burrendong Dam, but if the river doesn’t have the water it needs, is all this public money and volunteer effort wasted?” Melissa (right) asked. She’s concerned not enough notice is taken of the fact that the Darling River was dry just twice in the 56 years from 1946 to 2002, and yet it has been dry 15 times in just 14 years between 2002 and 2016. “Removing a further 70 billion litres from the Northern Basin Rivers is a serious threat to the existence of the lower Darling River,” Melissa said.

Proposals could cut the Darling from the Murray NOW, the questions about the plan’s integrity are growing, and so is the scrutiny, with the Healthy Rivers Ambassadors from across the basin claiming the South Australian Royal Commission into the implementation of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan makes the Northern Basin Amendments untenable. They say it’s imperative that the northern basin amendments are now vetoed in Parliament and the SA Royal Commission be allowed to fully investigate the disturbing list of serious allegations of water mismanagement and theft across all basin states. The ambassadors believe it’s

been left up to the hard work of community members, environmental groups and the media to expose serious allegations about some officials and powerful industry interests on the Murray-Darling, while national and state regulators have been sitting on their hands. Healthy Rivers Ambassador for the Macquarie River Melissa Gray said the health of the Macquarie River and Marshes will decline if the northern basin amendments are implemented. “No adjustments to the diversion limits currently in the Murray Darling Basin Plan should be allowed before the South Australian Royal Commission is complete,” Melissa said. “There continues to be evidence coming out about the depth of corruption in how the Nationals have managed water in NSW over the past decade – the Ken Matthews report and the Ombudsman report has outlined gross mismanagement in NSW. “The Murray Darling Basin Authority knew about problems on the Darling through its Datacube project, but did little to intervene (as reported by the Guardian Australia); and NSW elected representatives changed the river rules to make them more favourable for powerful irrigators – decisions made by these parties about acceptable diversion limits in the northern basin are not to be trusted.”

She says the community cares deeply about river health and wants government and agencies to be accountable for risking river health in favour of big profits for some. “The northern basin amendments, if implemented, threaten to cut off the Darling River system from the Murray system. The majority of fresh-water native fish spawning happens in the Darling River, so cutting these two systems off from each other could cause huge ecosystem failures throughout the entire river system,” Mel said.

A history of overallocated waters THE following is summarised from Terry Korn’s paper “Healthy River’s Article”. The Macquarie Valley is an example of the mismanagement of NSW water resources by a succession of governments and water agencies over the last 40 years. When Burrendong Dam was completed in 1966/67, the yield of the Macquarie River was assessed as 406 Gigalitres (GL = a billion litres). By 1978 the water users in the valley, most of whom were irrigators (agriculture uses about 80 per cent of the allocated water), advised the Water Resources Commission (WRC) that the river was over-allocated and an embargo should be placed on the issue of future water licenses. In 1979, the WRC introduced the embargo but at the same time

raised the annual estimated yield of the river to 475GL and continued to issue licenses so that permissible extraction rose to 497.5GL. Original licenses stipulated the area of land that could be irrigated but not the volume of water used. To remedy this anomaly, volumetric allocations were introduced. This system apportioned volumes of water (Megalitres/hectare) to a property and the property owner then decided how the water could be most productively used. Other valleys in NSW were allocated 6ML/ha but the Macquarie Valley was allocated 8ML/ha for irrigators on river schemes. For Off River schemes the standard 6ML/ ha was agreed. By 1985, the total allocated water was 612GL of which 452GL was for riparian irrigators and 160GL for off river schemes. It gets worse! In 1985 allocations to existing licenses were increased by about 13GL despite concerns and objections from stakeholder groups. From then to now the allocations for extractive use have risen to 738GL for the Macquarie/ Cudgegong system. An additional 160GL was also allocated to the environment despite the fact it was obvious the already

over-allocated river could not yield the 160GL. The total allocation of regulated and supplementary flow water for the system is therefore now the grand total of 899GL, almost double the revised estimated 1979 yield of 475GL*. As the river became more over-allocated and water was harvested freely from the floodplains, less and less water was available for overland flows and the recharge of wetlands. Floodplains below Warren now receive fewer and smaller floods. The many floodplain graziers and croppers in the valley have had production reduced by 30-50 per cent as a result. Our wetlands which provide ecosystem services and support a great diversity of plants and animals have decreased in number and size. They have been radically changed by the fewer and smaller floods which are now the norm. z Note – all figures are from: Johnson W.J.

COUNCIL WATCH

Dubbo Photo News’s independent reporting on and analysis of Dubbo Regional Council activities

Councillors witness the fray at LG NSW conference, Sydney By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY DUBBO Regional Council mayor Ben Shields and councillors Etheridge, Lawrence, Mohr, Parker and Ryan attended the Local Government Annual Conference this week at Sydney’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. Suspected to be a junket of fun by some residents at an early bird cost of $899 each, the conference serves as an annual general meeting for the key policy making body for LGNSW, with members – including our councillors – able to submit policy motions for debate and vote. Over 850 delegates representing NSW councils and local government employees attended from councils, LGNSW associate members and the NSW Aboriginal Land Council. Some big surprises emerged during day one of the conference on Tuesday, December 5, including heckling of acting premier John Barilaro as he tried to justify government spending on a stadium in Sydney, and Minister for Local Government Gabrielle Upton

refusing to take questions following her address, despite an allocated Q&A session included in the official program. She did announce a new draft code of meeting practice and mandatory webcasting of council meetings, something which Dubbo Regional Council is already in the process of implementing. “If it’s good enough for State Parliament, it’s good enough for councils,” she said. Upton also confirmed there will be no more forced amalgamations. A motion to bar property developers and real estate agents (not owner-occupiers) from councils was voted down and the discussion caused heated debate. The delegates of the conference also called on the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian to appoint a Minister for Local Government with a single portfolio. Other motions carried included a call for councils to shorten the pre-poll period prior to elections, that elections should be determined on

a first past the post voting basis instead of preferences, that NSW develop processes for flying fox camps, for the Minister for Local Government Gabrielle Upton to ban single use plastic bags, manage kangaroo numbers (culling) around roads and resultant accidents, and to create a federal tribunal to deal with domestic

violence. Motions lost included a stop to exotic animals being used in circuses. Councillors voted in overwhelming support of increased State Government funding for public libraries. Dubbo Photo News will follow up with Dubbo Regional Councillors on their return.

QUESTIONS FOR COUNCIL Do you have a question for Dubbo Regional Council? Send it to Dubbo Photo News and we will put your question to council then publish their response here. Email feedback@dubbophotonews.com.au, post to our office, or phone Dubbo Photo News on 6885 4433 ••• How does council decide where to build new footpaths? There’s a section on my street that has no path – can I put a case forward to have it done? Council: Future footpath construction is considered annually in the Annual Operational Plan and Budget which is placed on Public Exhibition in May each year. Other extensions of the footpath and cycleway network are taken as opportunities and additional funding arises. Write, email or call Council for more information or to make a submission on future plans. ••• There’s been trench-digging work done at Lady Cutler fields (closest to Macquarie Street) the past two weeks. What’s happening there? Council: The trenching is part of the new lighting system for Lady Cutler East which is part of the 2017/2018 Sporting Facilities budget. ••• Would it please be possible to change the high kerbing at the Western (railway-crossing) end of the “Wheeler’s Lane Dog Park”? At present, only SUV-type vehicles can park there while exercising their dogs, as the kerbing is too high for normal commuter-type vehicles. Council: To access the fenced leash-free area on Wheeler’s Lane, there is a rear gate accessed from Douglas Mawson Drive. There are 14 leash free areas across Dubbo, as alternatives.

COUNCIL NEWS... IN BRIEF Troy Grant releases official statement about former GM FROM Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant: “My office has been inundated with complaints, in writing, in person and via phone, raising serious concerns regarding the manner in which Dubbo Regional Council dealt with the termination of the contract with former General Manager Mr Mark Riley. “I wish to advise the community that as a result of their complaints, I have written to and spoken with the Minister for Local Government, The Hon Gabrielle Upton, making her aware of the issues and nature of complaints raised by ratepayers. In addition to this I have advised the Mayor of Dubbo Regional Council of my referral. “The Minister has advised me, she has asked the Office of Local Government to make enquiries into the matter to ensure that council complied with the relevant requirements under the Local Government Act 1993, and will advise me of the outcome of those inquiries.”

Abolition of wards, bring in popularly elected mayor THEY were about as popular as a third armpit, but it looks like the ward system may be defunct by the next Dubbo Regional Council local government area election. Council plans to make representation to the Minister of Local Government and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant, to consider the feasibility and appropriateness of amending the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) with regard to electoral wards. Currently the Local Government Act

1993 requires that the population of each ward must be roughly equal. DRC wishes to amend the process for the creation of electoral wards with variations of population of more than 10 per cent, and electing different numbers of councillors, so long as the councillor/ elector ratio is such as to maintain the principle of democratic representation across the local government area.

Council listening and learning on social issues DUBBO Regional Councillors have workshopped ideas such as justice reinvestment and other collaborative community programs to better understand the role Council can play in addressing complex social issues. Mayor of Dubbo, Cr Ben Shields, said at Council’s first meeting in October it was

resolved that Council should be playing a greater role in helping people and families break the link between intergenerational social disadvantage, substance abuse, criminal behaviour and other social problems. “These are complex issues in our community,” Cr Shields said. “The Councillors and staff have been working with a range of service providers across the community to better understand the issues and to help chart a new path in addressing social issues,” he said. Dubbo Regional Council Director Community and Recreation, Murray Wood, said one of the key messages from the meeting was that institutional change takes time. “Collaboration for Impact is an organisation which encourages a community led, collaborative response to change,” Mr Wood said.

••• We were promised earlier in the year, a pickup/ disposal system for small amounts of toxic waste such as used paint, acid, weed-killer and oil containers. When will the promised small toxic disposal system be in place? Council: Council holds an annual collection which for 2017 has passed. Alternatively, chemicals can be taken to the Whylandra Waste and Recycling Centre. No date has been set for the 2018 collection date at the Dubbo Showground. ••• When we installed two rainwater tanks at our property in Dubbo, we were told that the tank overflow MUST be piped to the street gutter. A request to run it onto the backyard lawn was denied. Why do Council staff seemingly turn a blind eye to the situation at (a Dubbo address not published here but passed on to council)? Has the policy for rainwater tank overflow discharge been changed? Council: It is preferable to pipe roof water to the street or inter-allotment drainage to avoid it impacting on neighbouring properties. In exceptional circumstances (where no practical alternative is available) roof water may be permitted to drain to an absorption trench in the yard, but this has presented problems for downstream properties in the past. For that reason, it is avoided wherever possible. Concerns regarding specific properties should be raised with Council’s Customer Service Centre so appropriate staff can follow up. ••• What’s the digging going on inside the old RAAF base on Palmer Street? Council: The site of the old RAAF base is privately owned. The digging referred to is associated with a previous development consent issued by Council for demolition of structures within this site.

WELLINGTON NEWS EVENT

Christmas fun for all coming on December 15 By NATALIE HOLMES ENSURING that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the festive season is the aim of the Wellington Community Christmas Party. Now in its fourth year, the annual event is all-inclusive and will help people come together to celebrate. Organiser Maree Thomas said the party was all about the spirit of giving. “I’m a big community advocate and this is all about giving

to the community,” she told Photo News. Maree said that it was a difficult time of year for many, both emotionally and financially. “People struggle at the best of times but at Christmas time, a lot of families are doing it tough. It’s tough to try and get extra groceries and buy presents. “A lot of them don’t even get out of Wellington. (This event) is for them to have a bit of fun because it can be hard.” Maree said everyone is invited

to attend the gathering. “We would like to encourage families to come along and have some fun – high income, low income, young and old. Everyone is talking about it now so I’m excited.” Although it can be difficult to fund an event such as this, Maree said the support of various organisations has been incredibly helpful. “There are different services and businesses that have helped, such as John Holland Rail, Infi-

gen Energy, Barnados, Mission Australia and Communities for Children. Without their generosity, we wouldn’t be able to do it.” Maree said the Christmas party would also revive some old town traditions. “We used to have the Venetian Carnival and Festivale so it will be really good to do this again. It will be a really good time for people to have some fun at a really affordable price.” The Wellington Community Christmas Party will be held from

WORKING TOGETHER IN CALARE TO FARM SMARTER, NOT HARDER

The National Landcare Program’s new Smart Farming Partnerships provide multi-year grants of between $250,000 and $4 million to put in place new and innovative sustainable land management practices, which protect and improve the condition of soils, vegetation and biodiversity. I’m calling for groups of innovative and talented organisations as well as individuals in the agriculture, fishing, aquaculture and farm forestry industries in Calare to apply. These Smart Farming Partnerships will support the development, trialling and implementation of next generation farming, forestry and fishing practices. Applications close on 21 December. For more information on the grant and how to apply visit nrm.gov.au

HELP AVAILABLE FOR CALARE SENIORS ]Andrew pictured with Wellington Lions President Chris Hardy and John Whiteley.

The Wellington community came together for White Ribbon Day on 25 November – a day to shine a spotlight on the issue of domestic violence. The Wellington Rotary Club White Ribbon Markets in Cameron Park were held in conjunction with the Wellington Family and Domestic Violence Collective.

]Andrew with Mark Griggs and Tony Graham from Binjang Community Radio.

Many community groups set up stalls, including Wellington Lions Club. The Rotarians worked the BBQ while Binjang Community Radio did a live broadcast. Thank you again to everyone involved in helping to raise awareness and end violence against women in our communities.

VISITING GULGONG PRESCHOOL LITHGOW BLAST FURNACE UPDATE

Residents in Calare over the age of 55 can access a new, free support network that aims to help with legal and aged care rights. The Federal Government has provided $25.7 million over the next three years for the Older Persons Advocacy Network. Residents will be connected with a local advocacy organisation and trained advocates then assess their needs and can provide personalised service and meet with them if necessary. For more information visit opan.com.au or call 1800 700 600.

NEW CERVICAL CANCER TEST Women in Calare are set to benefit from a new and more effective screening test for cervical cancer — it’s more accurate and requires testing less often. The new human papillomavirus (HPV) test will prevent up to 30 per cent more women from developing cervical cancer because it detects HPV, an early risk indicator for cervical cancer. The new test not only helps detect cervical cancer earlier, but also means women only need to be tested every five years as opposed to two years. Women looking for more information about the new cervical cancer test can talk to their health professionals, visit cancerscreening.gov.au/cervical or call 13 15 56.

SHOP LOCAL THIS HOLIDAY PERIOD

It will also act as a performance space for events such as Ironfest, Lithglo, film festivals, vintage car events, and art installations.

In the lead-up to Christmas Day I’m urging the communities of Calare to back small business and shop local. The holiday season is when many small businesses work their hardest and employ more locals to meet the demands of the Christmas retail trade period. It is important we back our small businesses which are the engine room of our economy and we can do this by shopping local this holiday season. You can find something special and truly unique locally for family, friends and loved ones to enjoy and Calare has wonderful small businesses offering an abundance of choice.

The Federal Government has injected $350,000 under the Tourism Demand-Driver Infrastructure Programme and $545,050 under the National Stronger Regions Fund. The total investment by the Federal and State Government is just over $1.3 million.

CALARE STUDENTS GET HEAD START IN STEM

]Andrew pictured with some of the students at Gulgong Preschool.

It was great to catch up with Director Wendy Harris and the staff and kids at Gulgong Preschool after they recently took out the prestigious Gold Nugget Award at Gulgong’s Gold Nugget Business Awards! Back when I was the State Member for Orange I secured $484,150 in funding for a new classroom at the preschool, allowing them to offer more places. It’s wonderful to see the centre going so well!

BIG BOOST FOR WELLINGTON’S SMALL BUSINESSES All of our small businesses are reminded that the Australian Government’s Instant Asset Write Off means if you are a small business with a turnover of up to $10 million, you can continue to purchase the equipment you need to grow, up to $20,000 in value, and write it off on your tax immediately. Due to huge popularity it’s been extended, and it’s a great opportunity for our local small businesses to upgrade their equipment. We know turnover above $2 million doesn’t mean you’re a big business, so the Federal Government has changed the definition of small business to up to $10 million to help even more small operators access this initiative. I would encourage all of our hard working small business people to take advantage of this. It’s a great initiative and I fully back it. The tax rate for small businesses has also been dropped to 27.5% in more good news for this vitally important sector.

It’s great to see work progressing at Lithgow’s iconic and historic Blast Furnace. Upon completion of the upgrades the state heritage listed facility will be a major tourist attraction for the region with the public able to use the site.

DO YOU HAVE AN EVENT THAT NEEDS FUNDING? I’m encouraging organisations in Calare to apply for Round Two of the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF). Under the Community Investments Stream grants are available for community activities such as festivals, expos, new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans, and leadership and capability strengthening activities Submissions close on 19 December 2017. For more information on the program, or to submit an application, visit www.business.gov.au/assistance/buildingbetter-regions-fund Remember, if we don’t apply for the funding here, the money will go to somewhere else in Australia!

Applications are open for a new program to make access to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) easier for 1200 students living in regional and remote areas of Australia. I’m encouraging local students to apply for the scholarships of up to $18,000, made possible by a $24 million commitment from the Australian Government. This is a fantastic opportunity for local students to gain the support they need to study in fields with strong employment outcomes. These scholarships are about making student life easier for students in Calare and making STEM courses more attractive study options. The scholarships will operate from 2017-18 to 2020-21, with the first round of 600 scholarships being awarded for the 2018 academic year, and a second round of 600 for 2019. The first round of applications closes on 8 January 2018. Scholarship applications for the 2019 academic year will open in the second half of 2018.

Super speed, on the ground and in the air

Our very own sinkhole: Dubbo had its very own sink hole this week, although it wasn’t anywhere near as big as some of the ones that have opened up in China and swallowed cars whole. Still, this one was dangerous enough for a road crew to put up a barrier to warn drivers. It was about a ruler-length wide and must have been deep because our photographer couldn’t see the bottom!

As the supercars roared through Newcastle for the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 on Saturday, November 25, Dubbo photographer Peter Woodward turned his lens to the sky and captured the F18 that did a fly past at the event. Peter summed it up best: “They are amazing planes!”

Lucky it’s only a statue: The rhino sculpture at the airport caught the eye of our photographer late in the afternoon, with the baby rhino watching on curiously.

Gnomes just never go out of vogue. Our sales gurus Frances and Donna were travelling around town when they spotted this big smile in a local garden.

Beauty after the storm: Photographer Coady Lomonaco captured this other-worldly image on November 17, after the storm that rolled through Dubbo that day. “It left this double rainbow at the end of its path,” Coady commented.

Join in the family fun this Saturday at Southlakes THERE will be plenty of activity in Southlakes Estate this weekend with Maas Group Family Properties hosting a Family Fun Day to celebrate hit93.5 ‘Pippa and Jimi’s Lucky Duck’. Maas Group Family Properties and hit93.5 Dubbo teamed up to deliver the major giveaway over the last five weeks which will see one local win a portable Hornet Swim Spa valued at more than $30,000 this Saturday, December 9. Pippa and Jimi from hit93.5 will be broadcasting live from 10am until 2pm to announce which of the 50 finalist’s duck was lucky – and that person will take home the swim spa just in time for Christmas. But there’s so much more fun planned with free family activities including jumping castles, face painting, animal farm and a chance for the kids to get up close and look in some big Maas Civil machinery. Plus, there will be stalls on hand to purchase from including a barbecue by CYMS in support of the Ryan Medley Appeal, as well as snow cones, coffee, Dippin’ Dots and more. “We’d like to extend the invite to everyone to come and join in the fun of the day,” Maas Group Family Properties sales manager Bill Kelly said. “There’s plenty to do and it’s also a great excuse to walk around the Estate and see how much it’s grown and what’s planned next. “There’s also nine different display homes in the Estate now that will be open on the day for people to take a look through,” Bill added. Maas Group Family Properties family fun day will run from 10am until 2pm this Saturday, December 9, at the Maas Group Family Properties Southlakes Display Home, 28 Azure Ave. Win: Maas Group Family Properties Sales Manager Bill Kelly, Jimi and Pippa from hit93.5 Dubbo with the swim spa that will be given away this weekend.

Sights, sounds and tastes abound at the Christmas Shop on Bourke By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY CHRISTMAS SHOP owner Carmel Powyer loves Christmas so much her store is open 12 months of the year! “I loved our family Christmases growing up. I love the season and the spirit around it,” she told Dubbo Photo News. Her destination shop is overflowing with gorgeous Christmas décor, exquisite pieces to make any Christmas memory sparkle. “Part of the benefit of being open all year is that people can layby pieces they might not ordinarily buy and take time with regular payments to make their purchase,” she said. Whatever the price, all the Christmas Shop pieces are quality and beautifully made. “We have collectable and posable elves imported from the USA. Every piece is their own character and personality,” Carmel said. New to the store just this week, are home-made Christmas cakes and premium Christmas puddings. Personalised baubles are extremely popular. The delicate baubles hand-made in Poland come in

small, medium or large, priced between $6 and $22, with $3 to have a name and the year added. Hoping to provide the opportunity for people celebrating Christmas to furnish their home, tree, or Christmas table with unique points of difference, everything in store can be considered a talking point. “Interest in decorating in the home is definitely increasing. Christmas is really about creating memories by doing something special. It comes around so quickly. Putting that effort into it, keeps the spirit alive.”

Throughout the year, Carmel plans to host craft nights to teach wreath making, how to “ruche” ribbon for your Christmas tree, and Christmas craft classes for kids. “I’m also considering next year to offer a specialised tree decorat-

ing service,” she said. The Christmas Shop has plenty in store for 2018. Everything in store sells quickly so pop in today for that extra special memory maker for Christmas.

St Johns College 40th Reunion Photos by GREG MARGINSON REMEMBER 1977? The year the Dubbo Zoo opened, and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” was the number one single in Australia. Maybe “Mull of Kintyre” by Wings or “Lucille” from Kenny Rogers might be more your thing? The class of 1977 from St Johns College gathered at the Commercial Hotel on Saturday, November 18, and the memories came flooding back.

PUZZLE EXTRA GO FIGURE

MEGA MAZE

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

SUDOKU EXTRA

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figures given at the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given (that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the numbers below the diagram to complete its blank squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Place a number in the empty boxes in such a way that each row across, each column down and each small 9-box square contains all of the numbers from one to nine.

LEAGUE TAG

Not even Rambo phases these league taggers! Photos by MEL POCKNALL WHEN former Manly-Warringah and Australian Test forward Ronny “Rambo” Gibbs pulls on a jersey, most people look for somewhere to hide, but the former hard man held no fears for the folk from Westhaven. In fact, it was the former Sea Eagle who backed off and decided to referee! It was all part of an annual few matches played in league tag and touch between those who follow the game with a passion but are unable to lace on the studded boots and play tackle rugby league. Results don’t matter, rules are applied flexibly and everyone has hours rs of enjoyment. Then all file back to their drinking hole for a lemonade or similar and take time to replay the game – and bag the referee! Well done Wes-thaven, Dept off Sport, BreakThru,, Ronny and all thee organisations innvolved in this fabuulous day.

Amanda reined on Gilgandra’s day of Cups

Amanda Turnbull urges Cup winner Mrs Browns Boys past the post ahead of Karloo Threeothree

By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL LEADING reinswoman Amanda Turnbull grabbed the prestigious Gilgandra Cup and the Windmill Trophy as well as two other prizes on a day for the ages at Dubbo paceway last Sunday. The historic inaugural Gilgandra Cup’s program turned out to be a spectacularly successful day with a bumper crowd, lots of fan participation and funds raised for the Gilgandra Cancer Group. The racing was top notch. Amanda showed her class, there were a couple of glitches on the track but no falls or injuries and everyone left smiling. Organiser Graham Phipps was over the moon, despite being “as nervous as a bridegroom on Sunday morning after the downpours on Friday night and Saturday”. “Gilgandra people came in droves, won nearly all the hams, raffles and 100 clubs. Loved it! Everyone is keen to come back next year. We are aiming to make it a regular on the local harness racing calendar,” he quipped.

Gil turns out in droves for Cup day IT wasn’t all racing at Sunday’s Gilgandra Cup meeting! There was face painting, plenty of food and drinks and some shady places for old friends to catch up. The Gilgandra Cancer Group was formed several years ago in recognition of those families in the com-

munity who needed practical and financial help. Volunteers assist in a number of ways, and it seems there are plenty of supporters given the roll-up at Dubbo Showground on Sunday. A huge vote of thanks goes to all those who dreamed and then transformed it into a fantastic reality. Mel’s photos of smiling spectators tell the tale of a day well had!

Dubbo’s best ever State Cup results

Timothy Boney-Stewart, playing for the Dubbo Devils Open Men’s B Grade team, touches down for a try against the Ballina Bull Sharks at the 2017 NSW State Cup tournament for touch football in Port Macquarie on the weekend. The Devils lost the semi-final match, but the Dubbo team progressed further in the tournament than ever before. PHOTO: ROB SMITH/WOWFACTORPIX.COM

By GEOFF MANN DUBBO Touch sent two teams to Port Macquarie for the NSW State championships over the weekend and came home with two stunning results. Both the Men’s (Open) and Women’s teams played off in semi-final matches after sterling efforts in the Pool matches. President Neil Webster coached the men’s team: “To have both sides make it through to the finals was an incredible achievement. Our men have often travelled with an attitude that a few wins is good, but this year they worked hard in the lead-up and the results on the field showed. It is extraordinary to see the improvement. It is like potential has now grown into belief and the wins throughout the three days will set us up for next year,” Neil said proudly. “Our women’s team is strong and built on their Country title-winning efforts. They were unlucky to lose their play-off game but have again covered themselves in glory.” Congratulations to all involved. Travel, time away from home and the prospect of a very wet weekend did not deter our Touchies and the rewards are there for everyone to see.

all weekend for Dubbo Touch, there was one young player who epitomised his business name. – Timothy was WOW! “The young man they call Fred “was pretty to watch. Light on his feet, he always

seemed to have ample time to make his movement decisions. Fred Astaire with a football – runner, jinker, interceptor,” is how Rob described the young man who recently received a Dubbo jersey.

“On several occasions this young bloke, Timothy Boney-Stewart, showed the opposition a clean pair of heels,” Rob exuded. Well done Tim, Neil and all from Dubbo Touch.

ATHLETICS

Xanthe, Ella, Jack pave the way at international meet DUBBO Athletics Club athlete Xanthe Chatfield claimed a silver medal in the Pacific School Games in Adelaide on Sunday, while smiling middle-distance runner Ella Penman finished seventh in the 1500 metres. Then the next day, Ella finished 6th in the 800 metres and placed seventh in the 1500 metres. These are incredibly pleasing results as they included personal best times by more than two seconds. The pair have set the scene for more good news in week two of the Games that brings together competitors from every state in Australia as well as individuals and teams from the Pacific islands. These results are a tribute to the talent and dedication of two of our finest and the skilled coaching they have received from their respective parents, Jason Chatfield and Mark Penman. Jason was ecstatic with the medal-winning performance of his protege. “Xanthe finished second in the shot put, and sixth in the multi event, which is like

a mini heptathlon over three events. We are so, so proud of her. “The opening ceremony was something else! Xanthe and Ella had been sent some dance moves to practice in the weeks leading up to the Games. They were so excited; all four of us parents were rapt!” The coaches are already working towards getting “a few more to Nationals next year”, according to Jason. Xanthe and Ella have set the scene for our local high school representatives, steeplechaser Lochie Townsend and powerhouse thrower Nosa Obaseki who compete this weekend.

BREAKING NEWS: Jack Allen wins gold ST JOHNS College Dubbo was circulating the good news on Tuesday that Year 10 student Jack Allen won a gold medal in the multi-class relay at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide this week. “He swam the breaststroke leg with a personal best under 38 seconds,” the school reported.

The St Pius kids crammed into the hall to watch Ella compete this week on Youtube live stream!

SWIMMING

Rich hat-trick has all the Ducks quacking! LONG-SERVING Dubbo Duck, Robert “Bob” Rich, had the whole flock gabbling on Sunday morning when he flapped his way to the podium in all three events. “Rob’s hat-trick, taking out all of the events – some by default – was something to get everyone in a flap,” Judy Walsh quacked. “Never mind how he won, we don’t, just good to know that he won!” But Rob wasn’t finished there, he also claimed the Comfort Inn Dubbo City Motel December trophy. “Yours truly presented him with a new bottle of ‘white out’ for the table. I am

sure the old one must be close to empty with the number of wins that come from there lately,” Judy added, in reference to the group of Ducks who control times and finishes! The Ducks are heading elsewhere for the Christmas break, “just in case someone tries to pluck us for their dinner,” Judy laughed! With only two more weeks of swimming for the year, expect large numbers to join in on Sunday for a chance to win a ham. The Ducks Christmas party is pencilled in for December 17 following the last swim for the year.

SPORT Brothers in arms When brothers oppose, there can only be one winner! Photographer Rob Smith was on hand at the State Cup Touch Titles to capture a scene that has been played out many times in the backyard – brothers Rob and Dylan going head-to-head for bragging rights! Gilgandra-based teacher Dylan, who was playing for Dubbo, had the last laugh, beating his brother Rob (Port Macquarie) not once but twice over the few days. In our main action shot above, Graham Robinson and Dylan Smith (with Timothy Boney-Stewart obscured in the background) are pictured attacking the line while playing Dylan’s brother Ben’s team – the Port Makos. The Smith brothers are also pictured in this photo that’s bound for the family album, Ben on the left and Dylan on the right. Photos by Rob Smith/wowfactorpix.com
