It sure is thirsty weather at the moment – just ask this koala at Taronga Western Plains Zoo! Photographer Peter Woodward was at the zoo over the weekend to see the koalas being showered with water, but that wasn’t enough for this dinki di Aussie, who took the chance to lap up an extra drink from the zoo’s watering system.

Transport industry vital to local economy

Water boost planned for Burrendong as level drops

AS one of the city’s biggest employers, Dubbo’s economy remains reliant on a strong transport industry. Walkers Transport was the city’s largest trucking firm back in the 1970s and last weekend’s company reunion illustrated that only too well – many of those present had dedicated their whole careers in the business. Former manager John Scott says not enough people understand the importance of the transport industry to the local economy. “If the trucks stopped running, people would starve pretty quickly... Without the transport industry Australia stops.”

LAKE BURRENDONG’S current level of 10 per cent is predicted to drop to just three per cent in coming months, with local communities and commercial users all likely to be affected.. “If it remains dry, Burrendong is likely to be around 3-4 per cent by the end of March,” a spokesperson for WaterNSW told Dubbo Photo News. With irrigators already on water restrictions, recreational users of the public waterway could also be impacted. The current conditions are also creating additional problems.

DUBBO CITY LIFE Comment by TIM PANKHURST MANAGING EDITOR

Nature’s fireworks SUNDAY night’s whopper storm delivered plenty of lighting and thunder – one crack of lightning over the city was about as loud as I’d heard for a long time. And the rain that came with it was very, very welcome, although judging by the widely varied rain gauge reports, it was one of those thunderstorms where one property might get an inch, but the property up the road only half that. Dubbo airport recorded 39.4mm of rain, parts of South Dubbo had a little less at 25mm; I heard one report out Collie way of only a few millimetres, but one of the better falls was over 50mm (two inches on the old scale) just a few kilometres out of Dubbo. Commiserations to those whose power was knocked out by the storm. It would be pretty tough having your power going offline for six or more hours in this heat, which is what one reader reported to us on Monday. As shown in a photo on our InFocus page today, flash flooding caused problems on the Newell Highway at the West Dubbo railway bridge on Sunday evening, too.

Council responds to ‘Untidy Town’ criticism WE’VE received numerous Thumbs Down contributions from readers over the past month to the state of some of the approaches to our city, and to a lack of upkeep on some public gardens around Dubbo. It’s something of obvious concern to local residents and so journalist Yvette Aubusson-Foley has prepared a report for today’s paper to find out why. Her report includes

Lung cancer drug to be heavily subsidised

a detailed response from Council. One proud local was embarrassed that the city wasn’t looking its best at a time when we’re being visited by tourists who we’d like to think can return home at the end of their holiday with the best possible impression of Dubbo.

Flying in a storm WE had an interesting contribution after Sunday night’s massive storm from a reader. They emailed to say they’d spotted a plane flying in the middle of the lightning storm. “All I could see was this red light – I couldn’t even hear the engine. High winds, flying just above the horizon, buffeted by the wind,� the reader said. It must have been a hair-raising ride for the pilot and anyone else on board.

Road fatalities fall over past year ROAD deaths in NSW have declined by more than 10 per cent over the past 12 months. The NSW Centre for Road Safety

reported 355 lives lost for the 12-month period up until January 21, compared to 399 for the same period in the previous year. For the period since January 21 up until Monday, NSW had lost 27 lives on the road, down from 29 for the same 21-day period in 2018. While the fall is very good news, we can’t let our guard down. There are still some major safety issues that need to be addressed including the incessant use of mobile phones by drivers, and speeding through school zones need to be targeted as many kids start heading back to school next week. A less-reported statistic, but one that still has a very high impact on lives is the number of serious injuries caused by road smashes. A total of 11,180 people were hospitalised last year. That’s a lot of interrupted lives, angst for loved ones, lost time with family and friends, and cost to the health system. Stay safe on the roads this long weekend.

GOOD news for some Australian cancer patients came this week in the form of a Federal Government announcement that it will make lung cancer medicine affordable. “Hundreds of families across Australia will save close to $90,000 each year from a $96 million investment our Government is making,� Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Sunday. The Government will list Tagrisso on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) from February 1. Up until now, patients would pay close to $8000 per script – that’s almost $88,000 a year – for this treatment. The PBS listing means the price drops to just $40.30 per script, or $6.50 for concessional patients. “Subsidising medicines like Tagrisso means patients can manage their cancer at home rather than visiting the hospital for chemotherapy,� Mr Morrison said. It’s almost staggering that a potentially lifesaving drug could cost so much in the first case. I’m sure the big pharmaceutical companies would argue the cost of developing those drugs is expensive, and so the price needs to be high. The drug Tagrisso was developed by AstraZeneca, a British multinational pharmaceutical company. My understanding is most of these highly expensive drugs are owned by similar multinationals. At a time when the government – and the rest of us – is encouraging young people to pursue careers in science, perhaps the government should also take the long-term view and pour a similar amount of money into employing Aussie researchers to develop these drugs on the public purse. The PBS reports its expenditure for the 2016-17 financial year was over $12 billion. If we invested the same amount each year to research and development, we could become the world leader in pharmaceuticals.  feedback@dubbophotonews.com.au

Boost planned for Burrendong as level drops

Ann-Maree Chandler, from the Titan Mud Run committee I’m the Media Representative for the Titan Mud Run, which means that I do all the Facebook posts, create the videos, organise photography on the day, promote the event and book in the promotional sessions. Basically I’m really passionate and invested in the event. I became involved after joining a training group that went to Sydney to do a Spartan Race together. We were asked if we wanted to help put together a Mud Run for Dubbo and we said yes, then we got together and talked about how it was going to come to fruition. 2019 will be the Mud Run’s sixth year in Dubbo. Basically it’s just a massive fundraiser to help promote health and fitness within the community, and we do that by getting people involved, getting people to do the mud run and to feel inspired from it, to achieve something they didn’t think they could. We also continue that on because any funds raised from the mud run go back into putting in fixed installations of fitness equipment, bubblers, or kilometre markers on the five-kilometre track. Whatever assists people in being able to utilise functional movement equipment in Dubbo. It’s about encouraging people to get outside. We would love to see more teams and people getting involved, more people challenging themselves. We want everyone to dress up bright, we want to notice you on the course. We want to see all different sorts of people, a team of Nuns (for example) would be fantastic; anything you can think of outside the box would be great. Get amongst it, get dressed up, get crazy. We see a lot of team spirit during the event. One year a fellow hurt his ankle and he couldn’t finish the race, but his team carried his shoe over the finish line. The oldest person we had doing the event was an 82-year-old woman, and she finished it. We’ve had people come back year after year. People overcome things like fear of heights or confined spaces by climbing over things at heights or going in tunnels. For me it’s more just seeing people saying things like “I can’t believe I just did that”. I hear that all the time. People say “I’m not fit enough” (and so on), but you are everything, you are enough. All you need to do the mud run is a ticket. - Interview & photo by Wendy Merrick

By NATALIE HOLMES LAKE BURRENDONG’S current level of 10 per cent is predicted to drop to just three per cent in coming months, with local communities and commercial users all likely to be affected. “If it remains dry, Burrendong is likely to be around 3-4 per cent by the end of March,” a spokesperson for WaterNSW told Dubbo Photo News. With irrigators already on water restrictions, recreational users of the public waterway could also be impacted. “Water restrictions were applied to general security irrigation and environmental customers at the start of August, limiting customers to 70 per cent of water in their accounts,” the spokesperson said. “Restrictions on boating access could occur if dam levels drop to a point where activities pose a public safety risk.” At the end of summer, the main usage of Burrendong’s water supply will revert to mainly human and animal consumption. “The main usage after summer will be for towns, and domestic and stock water and the river will be at lower levels,” the spokesperson said. In that regard, a bulk water transfer from Windamere to Burrendong Dam has been scheduled under the Macquarie-Cudgegong Water Sharing Plan to ensure reliability of supply. The current conditions also make the lake a strong candidate for additional issues such as blue-green algae which has played havoc for local aquatic life in recent days – killing up to 1000 fish.

Real Dirty. STIHL Clean.

“Hot, dry conditions and low flows make storages susceptible to algal blooms. Algae is a naturally occurring part of the river system,” the WaterNSW spokesperson said. The NSW Government plans to install up to four water aerators at Lake Burrendong to reduce the risk of any further fish kill events caused by algae blooms, black water or oxygen depletion. Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Water Niall Blair said recent storms had produced flows that resulted in a significant amount of debris being washed into the dam. “We believe that the primary driver for the kill was a sudden reduction in oxygen levels when the organic debris started to decompose,” Mr Blair said. “While water aeration won’t stop potential kills, it does provide localised areas, about the size of a basketball court, a place where fish can get more oxygen,” he said. There have also been a significant number of fish deaths in the Namoi, Keepit, Menindee, Lake Cathie, Port Stephens and Lake Hume areas. “We are keeping a close watch on Mannus Creek and Murrumbidgee in the coming weeks,” Minister Blair said. The WaterNSW water balance report for the Macquarie Valley 2017/18 shows that water volume in the area dropped from 1.2 million ML to below 600,000 ML. This includes Burrendong and Windamere storages within the area covered by the Water Sharing Plan.

ENVIRONMENT & DROUGHT

IN BRIEF

Blair defends water management

CSIRO’s Dr Tom Measham a keynote at summit

By JOHN RYAN

THERE’S a massive disconnect of opinions when it comes to the state’s western rivers running dry, being covered in blue-green algae and where massive fish kills have become all too common. There’s been a huge outcry from environmental groups, non-coalition politicians and the general public, but on a visit to Burrendong Dam last week, Primary Industries minister Niall Blair was firm in his stance that the state government has been doing a good job on river management. “Where’s the mismanagement?� Mr Blair threw back at the media scrum. “If we weren’t managing water the way that we have been, a lot of the rivers would have already run dry, they would have ceased to flow. “Have a look at the numbers of the inflows – we haven’t seen rain in some parts of the catchment for over 18 months,� he said. He spoke about the extensive drought, the unprecedented public fundraising and extraordinary government measures, and said the fact our rivers were now very low shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. “We’ve got emergency water carting happening across the state, we’re providing funding for local councils to drill emergency bores,� Mr Blair said. “We can’t wake up at the end of January 2019 and say, oh my

Primary Industries minister Niall Blair took some heart from the ďŹ sh ďŹ nder on Matt Hansen’s boat, which showed plenty of ďŹ sh activity in the deeper water, during his visit to Burrendong Dam last week. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

gosh, we’re in drought – we’ve been saying this for a long period of time now. “This is something that, when you go and have a look at the publicly available data, you will see we haven’t had water coming into the system, so you can only manage the water that you have and we have managed what we have had, I think, in a responsible way,� he said. That view wasn’t shared by some community members who were present, including Dubbo’s Healthy Rivers Ambassador Mel

Gray. After a shaky start, where the minister was challenged by Dubbo’s ALP candidate Stephen Lawrence to discuss river matters with the community members while the media was present, Niall Blair took plenty of questions from the public. He then went on a boat tour with Inland Waterways’ president Matt Hansen to look at the dead carp lying on the banks of the Macquarie River, areas that are usually covered by the waters of the Mookerawa part of Burrendong Dam.

The early belief was that a storm high in the catchment had sent a torrent of dirty water into the dam and, laden as it was with sheep manure and the like, much of the oxygen was sucked out of the shallow waters where carp and redfin had retreated for their breeding seasons. The minister took some heart from the fish finder on Matt Hansen’s boat which showed plenty of fish activity in the deeper water but he conceded the water debate won’t be going away any time soon.

REGIONAL Development Australia Orana’s (RDA Orana) first major event for 2019 is the Inland Growth Summit on January 31 in Dubbo, featuring the CSIRO’s Dr Tom Measham, Charles Sturt University’s regional development strategic advisor Fiona Nashm, and Fletcher International Exports’ Roger Fletcher as keynote speakers. Dr Measham’s research focusses on how regional communities and economies are affected by, and engage with, the social and economic opportunities and challenges which face them. In light of work shortages, RDA Orana applied to government in 2018 to become a Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA). See RDA Orana’s website for summit details.

Feedback wanted on Showground masterplan EXTENSIVE consultation with stakeholders has begun on a masterplan for Dubbo Showground and concept designs and visions for the facility will soon be placed on public display to allow Dubbo residents to have their say. “It really is a whole of community asset, and we are looking forward to gathering everyone’s ideas together and creating a long-term, sustainable and practical pathway to ensure that the showground continues to be a crucial thread in the social fabric of our community as well as a key economic force for the city,� Dubbo Regional Council mayor Ben Shields said.

RSL pool on track to reopen in April By JOHN RYAN

WITH a massive crane working on Dubbo RSL’s heated indoor pool, local excitement ramped up that this important community facility could soon be back in operation. Dubbo Photo News took a tour of the construction site this week with Dubbo RSL Club general manager Gus Lico, checking out a veritable forest of scaffolding covering the worksite. The pool’s been out of operation for almost 12 months, when the roof was deemed to be unsafe, but Mr Lico said these sorts of jobs cannot be rushed. “The job has been very complex and (there’s been) an intricate process to go along with it, so we’ve had a lot of consultants on board, structural engineers, architects designing all the work,” Mr Lico said, emphasising how important it is not only to get it right, but to ensure safety for patrons. “It’s very important to do it properly, the old adage of a lot of pain for a lot of gain probably rings a bell,” Mr Lico said. “We had to tick a lot of processes off for it to work. It may have taken a little bit longer than what we all wanted but I think the end result will be beneficial for all the members and guests. “We closed down in about February 2018 and hopefully it’ll become operational again in the last week of April,” he said, noting that the timing will be perfect for a heated pool opening coming into the cooler months. Construction company Whitcon’s site manager Dale Churchward said the pool has been transformed with the huge mass of scaffolding necessary just to get the job done safely. “There’s literally just under 70 tonne of scaffold inside the pool area and there’s about another 12 tonne on the exterior, and that had to go up to take the windows out on the northern elevation,” Mr Churchward said. “The scaffold itself is actually a fall protection so that the workers can’t actually fall more than one point five metres under WorkCover regulations, and that scaffolding is constantly being readjusted as the demolition is taking place, and also it’s going to be adjusted again when the installation of the

new steelwork goes in.” He pointed out how such a complex project right in the centre of the city can take longer, compared to an easy-access site. There’s also the added difficulty of the club and gym area having to be open to members and the public right throughout the build. “We had to pull out the failed timber trusses, we had to cut them up to lift them out into the carpark, and cut them up again to get them into a truck to get rid of them. There’s roughly about 35-48 tonne of steel going back in their place and that’s not including the roof sheeting,” Mr Churchward said. “I don’t think you’ll see this sort of scaffolding in Dubbo again, this is very unusual. I’d see it in Sydney but I wouldn’t expect to see it in Dubbo. “It’s a very complex project and access is very restricted. You’re

looking at all these bits and pieces, it’s all been carried in by hand from the carpark in through one single door and then set up, but I’ve got to give credit to the scaffolders, Dubbo Scaffolding – they’re a local crowd and they’ve done extremely well,” he said. Other trades from town have also put in plenty of work on the

pool project, with specialised propping requested by the local engineers – just one of those props took 10 blokes a couple of hours to put up. Gus Lico said the club will always support local jobs where feasible. “Even with the normal renovations we do we try to use local trades where we can. Obviously there’s some expertise in some jobs we have to bring in to Dubbo,” Mr Lico said. The total cost hasn’t yet come in. “Final figures aren’t in yet and there’s a lot of add-ons. Depending on the length of time with the scaffolding, because it’s a daily charge, it’s hard to estimate (the total cost), but if I had to put a figure on it I would think it’d be around $1.5 and $2 million, taking trading disruption into account,” he said.

CAREER PROFILE

Philip’s daily adventure With a long history in customer service, Philip Roberts is the perfect fit as the store manager at Mitchells Adventure where selling ex-army supplies and handling knives is just the beginning, NATALIE HOLMES reports. PHILIP Roberts has been working at Mitchells Adventure for four years now, and relishes being able to help customers find everything they need for their next camping Mitchells Adventure Store Manager, Philip Roberts, believes ‘School of Life’ experience is just as valuable as qualifications and certificates for a job like his.

experience. “I have a fairly long history in various types of customer service and this seemed like a logical next step,” he explained. Daily tasks of the role include opening the shop and overseeing the smooth running of the business. “Further to that are finding solutions to customer needs and sourcing products for them when I can, (they) are important factors too.” Mr Roberts said he often receives an interesting reaction to his chosen field. “Most people think it must be a boy’s own adventure to work in a camping and army disposal store. I tell them, ‘It’s like Pop’s shed except you CAN touch stuff.’” One of the exciting aspects of running Mitchells Adventure is the vast array of camping and army gear

available from around the world – which all has its own story to tell. “We do sell a lot of knives so it pays to be a little bit careful handling those. “Most people also don’t realise that we source ex-issue army goods from all over the world including Serbian army shirts, US ammo boxes and containers, and even Yugoslavian fire fighters’ helmets.” And the best part is that the School of Life can often be the ideal training for such a role. “While qualifications and certificates are good to have, sometimes a few miles on the clock and common sense are just as important,” Mr Roberts told Dubbo Photo News. So are there any camping store openings available? “Opportunities do arise from time to time.”

STARTING OUT

Apprentice finds the key to interesting career By JOHN RYAN

JUST one year ago, job-seeker Lewis Meredith had no idea he could be an apprentice locksmith, and in fact didn’t even know such an apprenticeship existed. So he’s not only super pleased that Dubbo City Locksmiths took him on, but also super grateful to the Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES) for telling him about the opportunity, and helping him prepare his application. “I went to school over at Delroy and then I went up to Senior Campus, then I was looking for a job for a couple of months and then I signed up to AES and a week later they’d got me the job here, so not that long,” Lewis said. “If the AES hadn’t told me about this I never would have thought of getting a job in locksmithing, but I said I’d try it and I like it. “I didn’t know there was a locksmithing trade, I didn’t know you could be an apprentice for locksmithing, so it really surprised me,” he told Dubbo Photo News. DCL manager John Mannering is also pleased he talked to the AES. “We needed some staff, full stop, and the Aboriginal Employment Strategy was really helpful and it worked out great. They came down, they supported the young guys and they keep contacting them to make sure they’re going well,” Mr Mannering explained. “Lewis is going great, he’s been here about eight months and he’s fantastic. “The AES was great, they really matched us up with the right staff, they had more people than we

were looking for but they found the ones that that they thought would suit us,” he said. Mr Mannering believes he’s saved time and trouble going through the AES, having people he can trust going through resumes and culling the ones where the person wouldn’t be suitable for the job. “It saved us time and money and I think next time we’re looking for employees, maybe next year some time, we’ll try again for a couple just to keep our apprentices rolling. We’ll go to the AES again I think,” he said.

“It was good for us to go to the AES and tell them we were looking for apprentices and they said they had some people who might suit rather than us just advertising and hoping the right person reads that advertisement.” Locksmithing may not be as well-known as trades like plumbing, mechanics or building, but there’s still a good training path available. The four-year apprenticeship includes three years of TAFE. One of the main differences compared to better known trades is, rather than doing TAFE one day a week, apprentice locksmiths

have to travel to Sydney eight times a year for four-day blocks. “It’s a big commitment,” Mr Mannering said, “But it’s a good trade to have, you develop a lot of skills.” Lewis said he likes the variety of the job. “I like the people and it’s not the same thing over and over, it’s always changing,” he said. “You interact with customers more than in other trades and I enjoy people.” He said his family members are pleased that he’s launched himself in such a promising career so soon

after looking for a job. “My family are really glad I’m getting a trade and that I’m working,” Lewis said. “It’s going to make me feel good because I’m going to have a qualification that can be used anywhere. I’m going to have a stable job so I can get a house loan and stuff, it’s pretty good. “To any other young Aboriginal people, I’d say go to the AES, they helped me get a job, they’ll help you as well,” he said. Meantime, boss John Mannering says the ongoing mentoring and support from the AES is invaluable. “It’s very important because a lot of young people may not have had exposure to the workplace before, they don’t know what to expect and sometimes the boss isn’t the best person to talk to, so having someone else that they can talk to is helpful,” he said, pointing out the satisfaction Lewis’ workmates have had seeing him develop over the past eight months. “When Lewis came in he was very much in his shell, we’ve definitely noticed his confidence has increased.” He said it’s incredibly satisfying to be able to nurture young people and see them grow in life skills as well as qualifications. “It’s good to have some guidance over the people who are in our community, to show other people how work can change their lives, and it’s always better to be able to get local people and train them rather than having to get them from elsewhere,” Mr Mannering said

Transport industry vital to local economy By JOHN RYAN WALKERS Transport was the city’s largest trucking firm back in the 1970s and last weekend’s company reunion illustrated that only too well, with plenty of people turning up for the celebrations also able to pay tribute to those who could not. One of Dubbo’s best-known trucking identities, John Morris, said the crew added up that about 40 older drivers had already passed on. “I spent two years driving on weekends for Walkers while working on our family farm during the week. We couldn’t make enough money (from the farm) in those days, there wasn’t enough money about, so I drove and that was

after spending two years driving fulltime for Ray Holland Livestock Transport,” Mr Morris told Dubbo Photo News. “They had the largest fleet in Dubbo and they had the largest staff. “I was involved with Walkers in the early ‘70s. I first met Ian Walker when he had two trucks and the family went on to have 30 or 40 trucks.” Former Walkers Transport manager John Scott has been working in Toowoomba for years and when the reunion group was offered a tour of Fletcher International’s rail/road intermodal facility, he jumped at the chance. “The Fletchers were part of Walkers for many, many years.

OPPORTUNITY OF THE WEEK

Roger started off and he didn’t have much and it just grew and grew and grew and we were part of it. It’s been a fantastic road to travel for us all,” Mr Scott said. “What Roger’s done here, it’s fantastic. “I knew Roger had got big and I hadn’t seen this facility – it’s just fantastic. “I can’t believe what he’s done here – and for the transport industry,” he said. Mr Scott is a huge fan of Dubbo’s central location and just how much of the region’s economic activity is underpinned by the agricultural and transport industries. “Absolutely, it’s a big hub here, it’s a fantastic place. Dubbo has always been great and always will

be, I’d imagine,” he said. Mr Scott says not enough people understand the importance of the transport industry to the local economy. “If the trucks stopped running, people would starve pretty quickly. Trucks run every day mate, without the transport industry Australia stops, it really does. The transport industry is vital,” Mr Scott said.

John Morris agrees and says, while ever Fletchers can stay ahead of the game, the company will be a massive contributor to the city. “It’s the largest private employer in Dubbo, with 800 odd people. If it wasn’t here there’d be a lot of people in Dubbo out of a job,” Mr Morris said.

Age: 30 and in my prime Status: In a loving four-year relationship What’s your job? I am Vocational Specialist working in the IPS program at Headspace Dubbo. IPS is a trial program funded by the Department of Social Services, the acronym stands for Individual Placement Support. The IPS program is designed to help young people aged 15-25 to find meaningful employment or vocational support. IPS assists young people in resume writing, job search, interviewing skills, networking with future employers and ongoing job support. I am also a qualified personal trainer and will be volunteering my time each week during the school term to run the ‘healthy headspace’ walking group each Tuesday from 7.45am to 8.30am. The aim of this group is to give young people an

opportunity to connect with others whilst getting some fresh air and exercise in a supportive environment. We hope to longer-term have a ‘headspace’ Park Run team that will compete each Saturday morning and see many of our young people reach Personal Bests and work towards healthy, sustainable fitness goals that will also improve their mental wellbeing. What’s the best part of your job? The best part of my job is supporting young people through the process of finding employment and seeing the improvement of their mental health due to the sense of self-fulfilment from working. I also get to be involved in various community events and promote to our young people the importance of community spirit – like volunteering at the headspace Slip ‘n’ Slide event as part of this year’s Macquarie TITAN Mud Run – it’s going to be colourful, fun and full of

positive vibes, which I’m all about. Best advice your mother gave you? There is no such thing as the fairy-tale relationship, you will continually have to work on it, but for the majority of the time seek the positive characteristics of a person and don’t focus on the negative. If you could be invisible for one day, what would you do? That’s a hard one – sit in on a federal election budget meeting or sit in on an M15 meeting. Favourite quote/saying? “Don’t let fear hold you back” and “Be better, not bitter” Something you can’t live without? Sunshine and the ocean. Naughtiest thing you did when you were a child? Used my mother’s credit card to enter an online competition. I have so many more but this is the PG one. Three words to describe me are... energetic, honest and loyal. PHOTO: DARCEE NIXON

CARING for someone who lives with schizophrenia is an experience very close to home for Narromine artist Nerrida Barber. It drives her to support others in similar situations and raise funds for Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), which works to improve outcomes for people diagnosed with many types of neurological conditions. Mrs Barber will be joined by seven other Narromine artists who are featuring and selling their works in an exhibition called “Perceptions” to raise awareness about NeuRA and the work it does. An opening night on Friday, March 1, will cost $25 with tickets available from Soul Food Depot or at the door, and including canapes, wine, music, and the exhibition. The artists include Nicola McCutcheon, Meredith Stendell, Natasha Walker, Joy Kirkby, Kc Grealy and Sally Faulkner. They all met while studying art at TAFE Western in Dubbo. Ms Faulkner is continuing her studies at the National Art School, Darlinghurst. Ms Grealy is studying forensic art

at Newcastle University and creates visually-captivating, painstakingly-slow artworks of drawn insects and animals using tiny dots. Nicola McCutcheon works exclusively in clay and has exhibited at the Moree Gallery, Depot Gallery in Narromine and Mudgee’s ‘Sculptures in the Garden’. According to Neuroscience Research Australia, one in five Australians is affected by a major brain or mind disorder every year. NeuRA is identifying the causes of diseases and disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone Disease and is developing better diagnostic methods and improved treatments. It has active programs in schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder which each affect around one per cent of the population. It is developing and refining brain atlases of humans which are used internationally as the standard guides for scientists and neurosurgeons, we well as improved treatments for injured people. It is also developing strategies to prevent injuries. The exhibition will run at Soul Food Depot in Narromine until Saturday, March 30.

EXPRESSIONS of interest are requested from Dubbo region residents who have had or are caring for someone who has had a stroke. The Stroke Recovery Association is expanding into Dubbo and is looking for members for its club. Club meetings would involve learning more about stroke, sharing experiences with other survivors and carers, make new friends, get emotional support, enjoy guest speakers, enjoy social outings, help others and be inspired to move forward.

IN BRIEF

Council explains ‘embarrassing’ appearance to city’s entrances

Gallery releases 2019 events, exhibitions diary THE Western Plains Cultural Centre has released its January to June 2019 events and exhibition diaries. Annual favourites ‘Waste to Art’ and ‘The Handmade Art Markets’ will be returning. In April, ORISCON (Orana Residents of Indian Sub-Continental Heritage) will host the Cross-Cultural Carnival which is Dubbo’s largest annual celebration of the diversity of life and culture in our region. From Saturday, March 9, until May 5 the National Gallery of Australia’s third National Indigenous Art Triennial will see the works of 30 contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists from across Australia on show in Dubbo.

Federal member tours Japan and India

First impressions always last: Irrigation issues, total fire bans and emergency work interruptions to regular schedules due to storm damage across the local government area have resulted in regular maintenance interruptions for Dubbo Regional Council’s operational staff. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY SEVERAL “Thumbs Down” and a letter to the editor published in our January 10 and 17 editions respectively have been received by Dubbo Photo News readers calling into question Council’s upkeep of green spaces. “Thumbs Down to the only council in Australia that doesn’t take pride in their town. Weeds and grass untouched right through the city. Christmas travellers seeing Dubbo at its worst,” was one comment. And another: “Thumbs Down to the sad state of our town’s entrance roads and the Macquarie and Talbragar Street gardens. With so many visitors to the town over the Christmas-New Year period, the town’s gardens could at least be cleared of dead plants and entrance roads mowed. I was em-

barrassed for Dubbo.” In light of Dubbo’s top ten placement in the 2019 Wotif Aussie Town of the Year Awards and Destination NSW’s research which showed visitors spent 887,300 nights in the central west during the 2017/18 financial year – up 102 per cent – extra care with the city’s image appears warranted. According to Council, however, total fire bans, irrigation issues and storm damage across the local government area have interrupted their best laid plans. “We would like to let the community know staff have experienced difficulties in maintaining the town entrances due to lack of irrigation and also total fire bans that were in effect over the holiday period,” a council spokesperson told Dubbo Photo News. “We are not permitted to mow during these bans due to the

amount of dry grass in the surrounding area which could potentially start a blaze endangering our staff, and in turn, the community.” In the two weeks leading up to Christmas however, Council crews did cover 102 hectares of mowing, equivalent to 39 Melbourne Cricket Grounds. “Whilst maintaining these assets staff must also take into consideration RMS curfews, safety precautions and mowing in and around trees which can all effect the timing,” the spokesperson said. Damaging storm activity also meant emergency work took priority over scheduled activities. “A lot of council operational staff were preoccupied with clearing the fallen trees across Dubbo, Wellington and the rural roads as a result of the storm that swept through just after Christmas.” Dubbo Regional Council has a

ORGANIC GARDEN MIX

maintenance standard for all its parks, sporting ovals, reserves and gardens. “This standard is met the vast majority of the time. However, due to prevailing weather conditions that may include good rains in Spring that promote excessive grass growth, this maintenance standard may fall back at certain times. “To compensate, operational staff extend their hours of operations to a ‘dawn to dusk’ roster that includes additional weekend work.” Council has over 130 individual assets to maintain, including parks, sporting facilities and reserves that exceed over 1000 hectares. “This excludes any roadside slashing that is carried out both by contractors and Council staff,” the Council spokesperson said.

DUBBO-BASED Federal Member for Parkes and Assistant Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Mark Coulton, has travelled to India and Japan to secure more export opportunities for the region’s farmers and industries. “With 1.2 billion people and a fast-growing economy in India, a solid trading arrangement with this country offers great potential for Australia. “In Tokyo, Japan, my commitments have been concerned with the Trans-Pacific Partnership-11 (TPP-11), the most beneficial trade deal that Australia has ever signed. Already we will see reductions of tariffs into the 11 countries that are part of the deal around the Pacific regions,” he said.

AFRICA ETERNAL An art installation in Africa will play Toto’s 1980s hit song “Africa” on continuous loop, powered by the sun. The brainchild of Namibian-German artist Max Siedentopf, he wants this performance of “Africa” to “play for all eternity” in the 55-million-yearold Namib Desert, according to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not*. * LATEST EDITION NOW AVAILABLE FROM THE BOOK CONNECTION, DUBBO.

Call for abandoned shopping trolley campaign By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

DUBBO residents shouldn’t lay all the blame on retailers when trolleys are abandoned, according to Trolley Services Australia director Chris Ford. “It’s all very easy to blame the retailer, or the collector, but shopping trolleys are a personal responsibility. If a retailer provides a trolley for your convenience, your part of the deal is to take it back,” he said. “Most people do the right thing, and some don’t,” Mr Ford told Dubbo Photo News. Trolley Services Australia operates a network of collectors on behalf of Woolworths and other retailers whose job it is

to find and collect abandoned trolleys. They also run an app allowing consumers to report abandoned trolleys and retailers to find them. “Retailers spend tens of millions of dollars maintaining and replacing trolleys. They are an important part of the distribution system, but there can also be social implications around abandoned trollies. “There are people who have no other option but to use a trolley to get their groceries home, because they don’t have cars or other means of taking their food home. They need to eat. Do we penalise them for their circumstances?” Mr Ford asked. In NSW, abandoned trolleys are considered

litter under the Local Nuisance and Litter Control Act and penalties of up to $5000 can apply. “If you were driving a Volkswagen car and it smashed into another vehicle, do you penalise VW for the accident or the person who was driving,” Mr Ford proposed. He also said a social campaign to encourage behaviour change is what’s needed. “Thirty years ago, if you threw a milkshake container in the gutter, no one thought anything of it. Today, though, after campaigns like ‘Do the Right Thing’ and ‘Hey, Tosser’, absolutely people would say something about it. “The science of changing social behaviour is fairly well known. A wonderful job was done around littering – it’s time for a campaign around trolleys,” he said. Beddoes Avenue in the Orana Mall neighbourhood has become a “den” for abandoned shopping trolleys, and a concern for local residents. “Quite often they’re filled with rubbish and there’s one there now filled with green waste,” an elderly Beddoes Avenue resident told Dubbo Photo News. “While the trolleys appear to be collected from time to time, presumably returned to Orana Mall, any contents found in them ends up on the footpath. “That’s littering or illegal dumping. Either way, it’s not the right thing to do,” the resident said. “Centre Management can only appeal on the courtesy of shoppers to return trolleys to the trolley bays

FOLLOWING the announcement made by Dubbo Fireworks Committee last week that it will not continue with the New Year’s Eve party and fireworks, Mayor Ben Shields issued a statement saying that Dubbo Regional Council will explore other options for a New Year’s Eve celebration. “Such a celebration is important to deliver social and economic benefits for our region. “The volunteer committee has done a great job in establishing this event but there may now be opportunity for new partnerships and new ideas to deliver this special celebration for the region,” Cr Shields said.

provided,” an Orana Mall spokesperson said. “Every store and operation has a trolley management plan and individual collection contractors, but there’s no silver bullet. It is a complex problem,” Mr Ford said. “Councils can impose conditions as part of new development plans, such as money locks on trolleys. I don’t know in the last 12 months if an individual has been fined for abandoning a trolley. They’ll fine you for littering but not abandoning a shopping trolley,” Mr Ford said. Dubbo Regional Council spokesperson said that, rather than utilising Council resources after trolleys have been abandoned, concerned residents will be redirected to the appropriate services (listed below). “If Council do have to remove the trolleys from a location they are impounded in accordance with the Impounding Act. The shop can then claim them back for a fee,” the spokesperson said.

“There may also be other (trolleys) dealt with by other sections of Council, such as being pulled out of the river – these may be sent to the tip depending on condition,” they said. That doesn’t however solve the issue for Beddoes Avenue residents who may have abandoned trolleys in their street removed, but the contents dumped on the footpath by collectors. “I’d want to know those trolleys are cleaned before they’re returned to the supermarket. My guess is they’re not,” a local resident said.

Evocities the answer for big city population woes

EVOCITIES chair Cr Kevin Mack thinks so and has offered up a solution to the congestion and cost of living in capital cities, beginning with a standalone Minister for Regional NSW and increased funding towards regional relocation campaigns. “For eight years Evocities has been promoting regional city living and providing support for people relocating. We know what’s worked and where the barriers are,” Mr Mack said. Dubbo is a member of the Evocities campaign with seven NSW regional cities. “It’s time for the political debate to move from problems to solutions, and that must include support for regional relocation marketing, and decentralisation incentives for business, industry and individuals,” Cr Mack said.

U3A OPEN DAYS

Learning is for life By NATALIE HOLMES THE study environment advocated by well-known educator Freda Whitlam is thriving in its 28th year and showing no signs of slowing down. The Dubbo chapter of the University of the Third Age is proof that it’s never too late for learning. Just ask its members whose mission is to quench their lifelong thirst for knowledge. The local group boasts an incredible 400 members and a huge array of subject material, making it one of the biggest chapters in the state. Dubbo U3A president Nola Younghusband said the worldwide movement had its beginnings in France and came to the local area in 1991 with the aim of providing further education for mature age students. The group is volunteer-driven and classes are determined by a committee when there is sufficient interest. “We hope to keep abreast of new things, we have over 30 courses. It’s for your own en-

joyment and information,” she explained. “There are no exams, no qualifications. It’s an informal lecture and there’s a lot of interaction. “Most class sizes have between 12 and 20 participants, but there can be up to 50,” she told Dubbo Photo News. Topic areas include calligraphy, English literature and endangered species, to name a few. “We study everything from Australian and military history and art history to exercise and tai chi, along with recorder and ukulele classes.” As a retired secondary teacher, Ms Younghusband loves the concept of lifelong learning. She currently teaches painting, art history and printmaking and intends to add botany to her teaching credentials in 2019. “Once you are a teacher, you always teach,” she laughed, after 12 years in the role. But her tone becomes more earnest when she talks about the overwhelming benefits of

belonging to U3A – including social interaction and keeping your mind active. “People benefit greatly from coming to our classes where they can be socially interactive, it mitigates isolation. “Lifelong learning is a very important part of keeping your awareness and your ability to absorb things,” Ms Younghusband said. “General learning is good for everybody. “It’s a social thing, the love of learning, the desire to keep our minds turning over.” The Dubbo U3A chapter is funded through government grants and support from Dubbo Regional Council. It has a quarterly newsletter which includes a timetable of classes and for a $20 joining fee, participants can attend as many as they like. The 2019 open and enrolment days will be held between 10am and 12pm on February 1 and 4 at the Community Arts Centre, Western Plains Cultural Centre. For more information, call Nola Younghusband on 6884 5127.

EMERGENCY ISSUES

The Dubbo Photo News page dedicated to the hard work of our emergency services personnel.

Syringe danger for summer outdoors PEOPLE seeking relief from the heat are furious that they’re finding used syringes at places across Dubbo including the riverbank. Daniel Holmes took a picture of a syringe he found at Devil’s Hole a few days back. “Thumbs down to the person who left this on the ground at Devil’s Hole. Nearly stepped on it, absolutely filthy,” Mr Holmes said. Another syringe was found and picked up just one metre from Elston Park’s water play facility on a day where numerous children were running all around the place with no shoes on.

Police seek info after guns stolen near Pilliga POLICE are appealing for public assistance after some guns were stolen near Pilliga. Last Friday night, January 18, a man was sleeping in his truck on Bugilbone Road at Pilliga and, at some time during the night, police say unknown persons have forced entry into the rear of the vehicle and into the firearms safe. Firearms, ammunition, and other items were stolen. They’re tools of the trade for the 60-yearold who works as a drover and they were taken despite the fact they were stored securely inside the truck. Officers from Central North Police District were notified and they attended and established a crime scene. Police are appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

Shadow police minister in Wellington WELLINGTON’S been screaming for a 24-hour police station and concerned locals were able to ask questions directly to shadow police minister Guy Zangari who attended a public meeting in the town yesterday (Wednesday, January 23). The shadow minister and member for Fairfield hit Dubbo for a meet and greet and is spending some time in the electorate to learn about the issues and concerns of residents.

Elderly man dies in Lightning Ridge fire

Alcohol kills: Call to get tougher in regions

A REPORT will be prepared for the Coroner following a fatal fire at The Ridge. Emergency services were called to Lorne Road at Lightning Ridge late last week where they found a residence well alight. After the blaze was extinguished, police found the body of an 86-year-old man inside. Officers from Central North Police District established a crime scene which was forensically examined. An investigation into the fire is underway, however it’s not believed to be suspicious.

HEALTH professionals are working to put the harm caused by alcohol at the top of the agenda going into the March state election. The NSW/ACT Alcohol Policy Alliance (NAAPA) says life in drought-affected NSW is tough going, where the harms from alcohol misuse cause deep-level tragedy for people living in regional, rural and remote communities. They claim the toll from alcohol is far worse outside metropol-

itan areas than in renowned city hotspots and are calling for earlier closing times in major regional centres. “Regional, rural and remote communities experience disproportionate levels of alcohol harm, with domestic assaults 12 times higher in rural and remote regions compared to NSW as a whole,” said NAAPA spokesperson Tony Brown, from Newcastle University. “And the big killer in rural NSW is motor vehicle accidents, where alcohol is a factor in 85 per cent of crash fatalities compared to 17 per cent in major cities.” Through NAAPA, emergency workers, health professionals, community members, community sector workers, researchers and advocates have come together to develop an Election Platform to make the whole of NSW safer and healthier. The organisation is calling on the next NSW Parliament to acknowledge and prioritise the prevention and sustained reduction of alcohol-related harm and associated costs in regional, rural and remote NSW. “The NSW Government’s ‘earlier last drinks’ and ‘one-way door’ measures introduced in 2014 have been powerful and effective in reducing harms in prominent nightlife precincts in Sydney and Newcastle,” Mr Brown said. NAAPA states that communities in regional, rural and remote NSW should not be deprived of similar measures proven to reduce alcohol-related harm. “These measures must now be rolled out state-wide to deal with hotspots of alcohol-fuelled vio-

Nyngan fatality adds to road toll ALSO late last week, a Girilambone man died after the Toyota Hilux he was driving along Murrawombie Road, Girilambone, about 70km north of Nyngan, left the road and crashed. Police say the vehicle flipped and the 63-year-old driver was ejected. He died at the scene. A passing motorist notified officers from Central North Police District who are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.

lence in other areas.” NAAPA says another achievable policy would be to address address the rapidly growing online alcohol market, which, according to IBIS world, is expanding at the rate of 11 per cent per year. Chief Executive of the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education Michael Thorn says there are more than 500 online-only/delivery liquor outlets, which is a ten-fold increase in the past decade. “This burgeoning market is under-regulated around responsible service of alcohol (RSA) and proof of age controls, making it easier for underage and intoxicated people to access alcohol, leading to more harm to drinkers and those around them,” Mr Thorn said. To strengthen the regulation of the online alcohol market NAAPA proposes a moratorium on all online liquor licences pending a review of the online/home delivery market as well as the strengthening of RSA conditions for online deliveries that would require companies to display licence details on websites selling alcohol. The organisation is also calling for the introduction of a 12-hour delay on the delivery of online orders.

Tragic mystery solved A BODY found near Broken Hill last week is believed to be that of a person reported missing just over three weeks ago. Police received a call from a member of the public who found the body near a vehicle parked on an isolated dirt track, about 40km north of Broken Hill. Whilst formal identification is yet to take place, at the time of our deadline it is believed the body is that of a 64-year-old woman, who was last seen at a property about 50km east of Broken Hill on Sunday, December 30. Although the investigation is ongoing, at this stage it does not appear there are any suspicious circumstances. A post-mortem will take place and a report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner. Officers would like to thank members of the public and media who shared the missing person appeal. z Send your news tips to john.ryan@panscott.com.au or 0429 452 245 txt is best

STATE ELECTION 2019

Nats warn Labor Govt would stop changes to payroll tax By JOHN RYAN PAYROLL tax has long been a vexed issue from an employer’s perspective, now it’s turning into a state election issue as the battle for the seat of Dubbo hots up. The first strike this past week came from Nationals’ candidate Dugald Saunders who launched his support of a petition from the NSW Business Chamber, titled Jobs Tax. Mr Saunders claims Labor leader Michael Daley will increase taxes on small businesses looking to employ additional staff by not agreeing to increase the threshold on payroll tax. “The NSW Nationals and Liberals in Government announced payroll tax relief in the June state budget,” Mr Saunders said. “Under those changes the threshold for businesses to start paying payroll tax is being raised from $750,000 to $850,000 this year, it then increases $50,000 each year, up to $1 million by 2021-22. “Businesses which are impacted by Labor’s changes to the policy could lose almost $10,000 per year,” he said. Midwest Foods and Liquor’s Toni Alderdice said she’s right behind the changes that have been introduced by the State Government, and is concerned an incoming Labor government could take them away. “It’s been a pretty tough few years for small businesses across the region, so any help the Government can provide is greatly appreciated,” Mrs Alderdice said. “A change to payroll tax has been campaigned for over a long period, so it would be disastrous oc ed. to see those changes blocked. nd family “Punishing small and businesses just doesn’tt make ock in sense – we need to lock the promised payroll tax mall reforms that support small ment business and employment n regrowth, particularly in gional NSW,” she said. Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidate Lara Quealy

Labor’s Stephen Lawrence said this particular issue was a storm in a teacup. “The Nationals are running a scare campaign, but the reality is their policy is barely different to Labor’s,” Mr Lawrence said. “Labor supports the status quo of a threshold of $850,000 whereas the government is promising an increase of $150,000 in the threshold. “This is for a 5.45 per cent tax that 90 per cent of small businesses don’t pay – this is not a deal breaker when it comes to jobs,” Mr Lawrence said. Meantime, Shooters Fishers Farmers (SFF) candidate Lara Quealy claimed the payroll tax plan was hijacked from the policy initiatives her party put out last November. Here’s an excerpt from a press release Ms Quealy put out late last year: “Shooters, Fishers and Farmers (SFF) candidate La Lara Quealy has called on tthe NSW Government to urgently s ash taxes sl ta slash in regiona area al areas ‘to save small ttowns to wns from dying’. “SF “SFF... announced a new zonal tax policy – exempting all re regional busin nesses from

payroll tax and commercial [vehicle and property] stamp duty for the next five years. “The party’s policy comes seven months after a parliamentary inquiry recommending major cuts to payroll tax and commercial stamp duty to stimulate growth in regional areas. “We’re seeing zero action from the NSW Government even after their own report told them how urgent it is to lower taxes in the bush,” Mrs Quealy said in that statement. “Towns in the Dubbo electorate are dying. ABS data shows their population declining. Main street businesses are shutting up shop. This needs to happen if we don’t want a whole state moving to Sydney,” she said. Meanwhile, Dubbo’s largest private employer Roger Fletcher believes payroll tax as a whole hurts business and sends the wrong signals. ly it’s been a rev“Unfortunately om way back enue raiser from as no unemwhen there was ployment, and businesses were taxed so they’d put ry in, but more machinery posite. Now today’s the opposite. people want us to put ut employees on but Businessman Roger Fletcher

then fine us for putting them on – the government’s got to be able to have enough money coming in to change (those tax rules),” Mr Fletcher said. “I don’t think any part of government is willing to do that, it’s a state tax, it’s not a federal tax, but the most competitive state will be the one that will abolish it, but they’ve got to find ways of doing it.” Mr Fletcher believes whoever takes the reins of government should look at the total picture when it comes to creating an environment where businesses can prosper in the bush. “Payroll tax is one cost, our energy costs are an issue, all our costs. We have to get better at it to be able to operate and those costs seem to go up, but we’ve got to find other efficiencies to equal it,” he said. “It’s going to be an interesting one. “Depreci “Depreciation – I think there sh should be accelerated de depreciation (to encourage businesses) to put better be factories up because we could do it more qu quickly – we could buy better machinery if we could depreciate,” Mr Fletcher said.

Drought conditions continuing across NSW OFFICIAL climate forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology indicate that the next three months are likely to exceed average daytime and overnight temperatures across the Dubbo region, meaning drought conditions are likely to remain at current levels or intensity over the coming months. “Areas in the North West of the state, such as Walgett and Coonamble, have now experienced 18 months or more of extremely dry conditions in terms of the long-term historical context,” Orange-based NSW Department of Primary Industries Climate Applications and Digital Agriculture leader Dr Anthony Clark said.

The accolade from Wotif raises Dubbo’s profile for the travel website’s monthly 335,000 worldwide unique visitors and 335,000 unique visitors in Australia. Every little bit helps.

IT’S A RECORD! A parade of cars unlike any other has lapped a test track to set a new Guinness World Records title. A total of 55 self-driving cars built by Changan Automobile set a new record for the Largest parade of autonomous cars at Dianjiang test site, Chongqing, China on November 28, 2018. Travelling at 30km/h, the line of red Changans took 9 minutes 7 seconds to complete the 3.2km which each car separated by no more than two vehicle lengths.

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY DEBBIE Watson OAM earned the right to represent Australia playing water polo, winning gold at World Cup, World Championship and Olympic levels, while earning herself the reputation as the best player – not just in Australia – but the world. Ms Watson has been an Australia Day Ambassador for the past 16 years, and will be attending the Dubbo Australia Day celebrations in Victoria Park to give a keynote address. Speaking to Dubbo Photo News from Brisbane where she was commentating two water polo test matches between Japan and Australia at the Australian Junior Water Polo championships, her involvement with the sport today is primarily as a coach and Olympic commentator. Her journey to reach the peak of her sport in the 1980s and ‘90s however was very different compared to today. “I was a bit naïve when I first started playing. I didn’t even know they had world championships. Today the kids know everything, all about the Olympics, they know the pathways, and everything’s spelled out for them. All the information is so accessible. “I was just playing the game because I loved it. I got through very

Burrendong fish kill prompts aeration devices THE Berejiklian government is trucking solar-powered aerators from West Australia to be installed at Lake Burrendong as part of a state-wide effort to stem further fish kills. Deaths of fish in Burrendong this month have been blamed on organic debris runoff after recent storms. Burrendong is also at 10 per cent level and dropping. The aerators create basketball court-sized pockets of water to ensure algae bloomfree or black water-free zones. During a visit to Lake Burrendong last week, Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Water Niall Blair (pictured) confirmed the installation is being fast tracked.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Ambassador to make a splash quickly. I made a state team quite quickly at a school level; I could swim and had a netball background. “So, yes, I knew they had a state team but I didn’t know they picked an Australian team, so at my first open nationals, I was only 17, one of my team mates said ‘you might make the Australian team’ and I was like ‘what do they do?’ ‘Go to the World Cup’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ “My family are battlers, so we just didn’t know any of that sort of stuff, so for me, when they read my name out that I was going in the Australian team it still gives me shivers to think about it. And then to be able to travel a lot, I was very, very lucky. Every game was an honour to play for Australia.” Ms Watson considers herself lucky, too, that she worked out early that the more she put into her sport, the more she got out of it. “I was incredibly lucky to have family support as well. My family sacrificed a huge amount for me to go overseas. We were in the days of lamington drives and maybe standing at the traffic lights in your local area and asking for donations to help fund your trip overseas. “We went through it at a really raw time. It’s not that much different now except the parents have to pay for everything because you’re not allowed to

do any of those fundraising activities.” She never once considered her sporting career as being hard work. “It was great fun. I cried plenty of times. I was broken plenty of times, there was lots of things along the way, but that just makes the package and makes you appreciate it more when you’re finished. I just remember all the good stuff. “I think sport for us was more about love and the enjoyment and I think now there’s so much competition and everyone’s expectations are high, on themselves, on the coaches and the managers. I’m glad I went through when I did,” she said. These days there’s not a lot of actual water polo play for the champion. “Only because my body won’t let me. Everything’s falling apart. I want to play old person’s water polo now where you’re just next to each other, not over the top of each other. I’ve had all those competitive days of trying to drown someone and someone trying to drown me. I miss it dearly but I’m still involved, I still coach and watch and commentate.” Her role as an Australia Day Ambassador guarantees her travelling days are not over and she’s looking forward to sharing Dubbo’s celebration. “I just absolutely love Austral-

ia Day. I love the fact it’s such a community event. We like to get out to the park or the pool, and everyone relaxes. It’s just a nice thing to do. I love anything that involves a barbecue and friends and family, basically. “As an Ambassador I’ve been able to travel around a lot. So nothing’s really changed, I just get to go to the park and pool in different parts of NSW which is a great privilege.” Though she’s never been to this neck of the woods, she’s been wanting to come to Dubbo for quite a while. “We’ve got a nine-year-old son so it’s been high on our to-do list for a very long time. He’s a dinosaur and animal ‘freak’ so Dubbo ticks all the boxes for us, but he’s a dreadful car traveller so we’ve been waiting for him to be old enough to sit in the car for that long for starters. Luckily enough we’re flying in so we’re super excited to be coming,” she said. “The zoo will be fantastic, but he’s really into the caves as well. I’ve shown him pictures of the (Wellington) caves online and his eyes nearly popped out of his head, so he’ll love that. He’ll love the gaol tour too.” Learning the Aquatic Centre is open on Australia Day and right next door to the Victoria Park festivities, Ms Watson jumped at the chance to add: “I’d love to jump in and have a bit of a game with the kids.”

Peak Hill volunteer recognised with Hidden Treasures award LYN FREKLINGTON of Peak Hill was presented a 2018 Hidden Treasures award on Friday, January 18, by Member for Orange Philip Donato. The award is to recognise her outstanding effort as a volunteer. “The Hidden Treasures award recognises the women volunteers who give a little, but change a lot,” Mr Donato said. “These women ensure the viability of so many important community groups and charities; without their contribution many of the local initiatives we take for granted would just not be possible.” Hidden Treasures is an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries’ Rural Women’s Network.

How did you get the idea for Bag a Bouquet? As a flower enthusiast I was frustrated by how fragmented the buying process was for searching and purchasing flowers online. I’d be looking through multiple websites and comparing products, price and delivery locations, and this would often lead me to becoming frustrated and abandoning the process midway through when I couldn’t find what I was looking for. So from this personal frustration, the Bag a Bouquet idea was conceived where customers could have a fun, fast and simple experience in purchasing bouquets, where they were able to weigh up all the options simultaneously at the point of purchase. Bag a Bouquet does this by allowing customers the ability to search and filter bouquets from every supplier that delivers to their desired location. Do you have a background in floristry? No direct background in floristry, but like all girls I am a flower lover and wanted to create a simpler and more user-friendly experience to buying our favourite flowers online at the click of a button. What makes this website different than something like Interflora? Bag a Bouquet is unique in that it is a platform that supports our suppliers to express their own creative unique floral designs and products in which they are known for and to help them market their beautiful bouquets to customers in a simple one stop shop marketplace. For the customer it takes the stress out of buying flow-

Xanthe Reynolds has added over 60 suppliers to her Bag a Bouquet online platform in the year since launching, with Dubbo recently becoming the service’s first regional outlet. PHOTO: SUPPLIED.

Most importantly it provides a vast and wide variety of designs to choose from, all from the one platform. How many suppliers are now in the network? In under one year since launching we have had over 60 suppliers join our Bag a Bouquet platform across all major cities and we are now starting to launch our platform in regional cities as well. With Dubbo being my home town and the first regional town to be added to the Bag a Bouquet network (via Dubbo Florist Susie Yeo), that was very exciting. What has been the community’s response to the concept? Community response has been fantastic since launching in 2018, with time-poor florists loving the ease of having a digital marketplace to showcase and sell their creative

ers by being able to search and purchase floral bouquets within a delivery region, and have the choice of local suppliers’ products to choose from at all different price ranges to suit any budget. Described as a one stop shop connecting with local suppliers, how will this concept revolutionise florist delivery? Bag a Bouquet will change the way we purchase flowers, as the concept is simple and easy for both the supplier and consumer. For the supplier, it is a marketing tool which allows them to have a digital presence to showcase their stunning floral bouquets. For the consumer, it makes buying a bouquet for that special person so much easier by giving them visibility of what is available and assurance that what they see is what they will receive.

designs. Consumer feedback has been overwhelming and supportive on how easy it has made buying flowers online at the click of a button in one location. Most importantly it’s a free service for the consumer. We have also been overwhelmed with our social media support with over 10,000 followers of our Bag a Bouquet Instagram page. Where do you see the service going in the future? Bag a Bouquet will look to continually improve our service offering by building our supplier network to allow consumers to be able to purchase bouquets easily and readily across all regions in Australia. We will also look to continue to improve our platform to make the selling and purchasing experience simpler and easier.

On track: Rail projects boosting the region This vast vacant land between the Showground and Wheelers Lane will be home to the NSW Regional Rail Fleet’s Dubbo Maintenance Facility. Construction of the facility is planned to start this year. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

BY NATALIE HOLMES WE once rode on the sheep’s back. Now there is every chance of travelling by rail, thanks to two important projects starting in the region this year. The Regional Rail Facility to be built in the heart of Dubbo’s railway network received final approval late last year, with the successful contractor soon to be announced by Transport for NSW. Once finished, it will be the site for construction of more than 60 XPTs and 50 XPLORER and Endeavour passenger cars to replace the entire NSW fleet. “We are currently assessing proposals from shortlisted applicants to finance, build and maintain the new regional rail fleet, and to build a new maintenance facility in Dubbo,” a Transport for NSW spokesperson confirmed. “The shortlisted applicants are Regional Futures and Momentum Trains.” The project has already been four years in the making with the first review of the regional rail network and potential locations for the maintenance facility taking place back in 2015. Since then, extensive investigation and community consultation has occurred, with concerns raised about location and

pollution (in 15 submissions) addressed in the body’s Determination Report. The project is now preparing to go full steam ahead and is set to boost the local economy through employment opportunities. There will be 200 jobs during the construction phase and up to 50 long-term jobs (including traineeships and apprenticeships) needed to maintain the new regional train fleet. “We are committed to minimising the impacts to the community during the construction of the facility and providing employment and business opportunities for the Dubbo community,” the spokesperson said. Regional Development Australia Orana Director for Regional Development Megan Dixon (pictured) is supportive of the project and can see the potential for local people to become ome involved. “By locating g the maintenance facility in the he Orana region, sustainable employment will be created, skills developed and businesss opportunities in the area increased,” ncreased,” she explained. d. “This facility lity in Dubbo will stimulate the local ocal economy by creating over 300 00

jobs for local businesses during the construction and operation stages. “To have a safer, more comfortable and reliable access to this service in the Orana from 2020 will see significant benefits for our local communities including better access to essential services, better connections to family and friends and increasing tourism for the region.” With the first sod turned in December on the upcoming Inland Rail, now is also the time for rural communities to take advantage of the 1700km project. Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said that the benefits to local industry will be enormous. “In my maiden speech 11 years ago, I said this rail line would place the Parkes electorate at the transport crossroads of Australia, and that is a statement I believe in strongly today,” today, he said. by sticking “I know that b to a strong vision and with this project tireless work th to will deliver benefits b never seen the regions n including in my before, includi of Parkes.” electorate o the rail line With th connect Melset to con bourne and Brisbane vvia regionNSW, farmers al NSW

and other landholders have an opportunity to share in the broader economic benefits of the Inland Rail’s construction by supplying suitable materials direct from borrow pits and quarries. Those located near the proposed Narromine to Narrabri segment of the line are being encouraged to register their interest with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) to supply suitable building materials such as rock, gravel and soil. The locally supplied products will be used to build rail embankments. There are currently 187 live contracts for materials, goods and services worth $637 million associated with Inland Rail, including the manufacturing of 200,000 concrete sleepers. It is also expected to create 16,000 direct and indirect jobs and add $16 billion to the national economy. To register interest for supplying materials from borrow pits and quarries for the Narromine to Narrabri segment of the Inland Rail line and for more information visit inlandrail.artc.com.au/ n2n-borrow-pit-registration For more information about the Dubbo Maintenance Facility, call 1800 684 490 or email projects@ transport.nsw.gov.au.

Dubbo’s gain attracts the critics from Sydney The Sydney Morning Herald reported last week that “leaked government documents” showed rail maintenance jobs in Sydney were under threat from new trains replacing NSW’s ageing regional fleet over the next few years. The newspaper reported that some people in the rail industry have criticised the Regional Rail Fleet’s Maintenance Facility being built in Dubbo “because of the longer distances the new trains will have to travel to get to a depot for an overhaul”. “Labor’s transport spokeswoman, Jodi McKay, said the government needed to come clean on how many maintenance jobs would be axed and which ones,” the report said. In his response, Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said, “There will be no job losses as a result of the Regional Train Fleet.” Nationals candidate for the Dubbo electorate, Dugald Saunders, said, “This is exactly what you’d expect from the Labor Party, whinging because we’re moving jobs to a regional area.” A Transport for NSW spokesperson said, “The NSW Government has committed to replace the ageing regional rail fleet of XPT, XPLORER and Endeavour trains and to build a new purpose-built facility to build the fleet in Dubbo.”

he had the idea to build a replica of the Wright Brothers Model A, the world’s first practical aeroplane. I’d say it was one of his proudest moments when he organised astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to stand on the moon, as a special guest for the inaugural flight – that day attracted about 12,000 people to the town. You seemed to pick the most difficult fights Eric, and I’ll always admire you for your community-minded determination. My sympathies to his family, he’ll be sadly missed.

Gaffe-free 7 days

AT my deadline time I hadn’t come across any massive gaffes from our state political candidates which was a shame, these stuffups make such easy writing that an automatic computer should be able to knock the copy out without any problem at all. I’m wondering if a bit of scrutiny from some media outlets at least has caused some political wannabes to cross their I’s and dot their T’s (yes, that’s my copywrite gaffe, I meant to do it) before engaging their mouths. Last week there were mis-steps from the Nat’s Dugald Saunders and Independent Mathew Dickerson. I’m yet to hear about any crazy mistakes from the Shooters’ Lara Quealy, Labor’s Stephen Lawrence or the Greens’ Rod Pryor – come on people, you need to drop your game and give me something to write about. If anyone hears of one of our candidates making a mis-step, I’d love to hear from you.

Corrective Services have a day in the garden

Warren Mundine has been installed as the Liberal candidate for the federal seat of Gilmore

CORRECTIVE SERVICES DAY was celebrated in Dubbo at Walan Women’s Group community garden just off Macquarie Street and what a pleasant setting in what felt like 55-degree heat when you walked out from under the beautiful shade trees down there. Kelly Robertson is a driving force behind Walan Wirringah and couldn’t have been happier

with how the day panned out. “As the theme of National Corrections Day 2019 is ‘Working Corrections’ it was indeed fitting that local celebrations were held at our community garden,” Ms Robertson said. “The day acknowledges the hard work undertaken by Corrections staff and to thank local Community Service Agencies and supervisors for supporting the Community Service Work scheme. “It’s also an opportunity to recognise the good work undertaken by those required to perform unpaid work in the community and to consider the many positive outcomes, not only for the individuals undertaking the work but for the wider community,” she said. The event allowed the Walan Wirringah team to reflect on the contribution of those who have lent a hand to make this garden a thriving, inclusive community resource and all members of

the Dubbo community are encouraged to get involved and embrace local projects of this kind. “It is amazing to see the amount of goodwill and sense of pride that this simple community garden project has generated,’ Ms Robertson said. “I consider it a privilege to work with a fantastic dedicated team of ‘gardeners’ on this sustainable project that has regenerated and transformed this space into a thriving resource the whole community can be proud of.”

Mundine enters the field for federal election YEARS ago former Dubbo deputy mayor Warren Mundine had a crack at the state seat of Dubbo for the ALP. He was knocked out of the race and the once safe Nationals seat was won by former Dubbo mayor Tony McGrane – by just a few votes. Warren Mundine went on to become the federal president of the ALP and has been a senior Indigenous adviser to a few prime ministers. Now it’s been reported he’s putting his hand up again to have a crack at getting elected by the people. This time he’ll stand federally for the Libs, hand-picked by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the marginal NSW south coast electorate of Gilmore, a seat where locals had already pre-selected a candidate, a nomination PM Morrison has overturned. When it comes to politics, things really do get curiouser and curiouser.

1927: the name that was drawn out of a hat By KEN SMITH “WE were in the middle of recording and getting close to completion of the project, so we thought we’d better put a name on this thing. Everybody had an idea of what might be a good name (for the band), but nobody could agree, so we decided to write a bunch of names on small pieces of paper and chuck them into a hat. What comes out first, that’s it and that was pretty much exactly what happened.” The name “1927” was drawn out first. It could have been worse, as Erick Weideman, frontman and only remaining original member of 1927 remembers, “Out of the Blue” and “Sanity Clause” were two of the other names in the hat. The project that was nearing completion was the recording of their debut album “ISH”. “ISH” spent four weeks at number one, scored two ARIA Awards in 1989 and another for Best Video in 1990, and is still one of the most successful debut albums by an Australian artist or group. Two more albums, “The Other Side” and “1927”, followed before the group disbanded in 1993.

Fast forward to 2009, and the anniversary reissue of “ISH” saw Erik reform 1927, playing to appreciative crowds wherever the music took them and landing high-profile supports with Simple Minds and Roxette. When asked, with the passage of time, how did he view 1927’s legacy and his role, Erik told Dubbo Photo News, “It took a long time to be honest, it was probably about five years ago that I actually went, ‘You know what, that’s bloody good, good job mate’. “Up until that point, well it was kind of like, something that I did,” he said. “My wife sat me down one night and said, ‘You’ve got to stop throwing this off, you really need to sit down and have a look at what you’ve done here.’ The album “ISH” is now in the National Archives in Canberra, so Erik’s wife rightly told him he needed to take credit for what he and the band had done. “My wife kind of slapped me around the head a bit and said just accept it,” Erik said laughingly. “It’s given me a lifestyle that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I get to play gigs and visit places that I have never been, I have gone into a warzone and played for

the troops; it’s actually quite an achievement and I accept my part in the whole thing.” Any musician will tell you that when playing music there are always new songs to be written and those that inspire; Erik mentions his love of the songwriting of Lennon & McCartney, quickly highlighting “Eleanor Rigby” and “I Am The Walrus” and especially the B-Side of “Abbey Road”. “In terms of craftsmanship it’s really hard to go past those two guys. Some of the stuff that they (The Beatles) created is beyond me. How did they do that?” In describing his own songwrit-

ing style, Erik said, “I can be really happy with a song and then I can change it 15 times. I am over pedantic with things that I write. “Making ‘Generation i’ (the 2013 album), there wasn’t so much pressure, I could do what I liked,” he said. A new album is almost done, with a release date expected to be set for the next month or so. He described it as “an interesting progression from ‘Generation i’”. For those who are loving vinyl, “ISH” is already available and the rest of the 1927 catalogue will be available on vinyl in the next few months.

1927 are Eric Weideman – Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard; Craig Laird – Guitar; Simon Shapiro – Bass; and Damien Cooper – Drums 1927 and Pseudo Echo will play at the Dubbo RSL tonight (Thursday, January 24). Between these two bands, there’s enough hits and great memories to guarantee a great night out and if further proof is needed, ask anyone who was there the last time 1927 and Pseudo Echo played the Dubbo RSL and watch them smile.

OPINION & ANALYSIS THE TOONS’ VIEWS

Greg Smart ❚ OPINION

AUSTRALIA DAY is upon us again, and so is the now inevitable uproar in the press and on social media about the date of Australia Day. The mere hint of changing from January 26 is met with social media outrage and accusations of being Un-Australian. A mention of the suffering and injustice this date represents to Aboriginal Australians is met with both outright hostility and a command to ‘just get over it’. This was experienced by presenter Brooke Boney on Channel 9 last week after she neatly pointed out the differences between the lived experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and non-indigenous Australians. Just the week before, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the Federal Government will force local councils to hold citizenship ceremonies on Australia Day as part of a directive to cement January 26 as our national day and enforce a correct type of patriotism to honour the ‘founding’ of Australia. It is very easy to pull apart this Morrison proposal as mindless jingoism. Who does he think this

LETTERS & FEEDBACK

Questioning the Minister on CSG and the Great Artesian Basin The Editor, On that hot Wednesday morning at the Mookerawa Boat ramp last week, I believe everyone present, including the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Water, was concerned about the sustainability of fish in the Murray Darling Basin Rivers. I commend the Minister for travelling to the sites of the fish kills, far from the air-conditioned offices of the bureaucracy, to view first-hand the impacts of water management on the environment where we live. Since Wednesday, I note our MP for Parkes has been cooking roast lamb in India, the Prime Minister has been in Melbourne watching tennis and farewelling yet another Liberal who won’t stand at the next election, and our Premier has remained on the east coast. While the focus of the Minister’s press conference was the Murray Darling Basin Plan and the state of the rivers, where Mel Gray our River Ambassador asked the difficult questions, I took the opportunity to ask the Minister about The National’s position on CSG, given the impact of this unconventional mining on underground water. I noted that the community living in the town of Walgett relied on bore water, as the river supply was no longer drinkable. Similarly the community of Coonabarabran had been on Level 6 water restrictions for months and was now reliant on bore water, as were all the farmers of the region north of Dubbo – Gilgandra, Coonamble and Coonabarabran. The Minister noted that the Narrabri Gas Project has not yet been approved, that the impacts on water were being examined and the Government would protect the underground water of the

Great Artesian Basin. I thanked the Minister and would have liked to challenge the assertion further that the communities of the Murray Darling Basin have lost trust in the government to protect their water. However, it was a very hot day especially standing on a bare boat ramp and I appreciate that the Minister actually visited the Macquarie River to view the low level. The Minister cannot control rainfall, only how the river systems are managed along with the Murray Darling Basin Authority. Dubbo will be reliant on bore water from March if rain in the Macquarie catchment does not meet the demand for water. This drought allows even Dubbo residents living among green parks and gardens with a river to swim in, to understand water is our most precious resource. We have to hold our politicians to account that any unconventional mining that threatens the Great Artesian Basin threatens our ability to remain living in Dubbo. To quote Coonamble farmer Anne Kennedy, there will be no-one left living in our region if our Great Artesian Basin is contaminated by CSG mining or if the water table is depleted by excessive extraction during unconventional mining. Therefore our opposition to CSG mining in our region continues and all candidates will be questioned about their views on CSG mining at The AnyoneButNats forum for the Dubbo electorate in Mudgee on Friday, February 1. The only answer is a ban on CSG mining in the Murray Darling Basin. Sally Forsstrom Dubbo

January 26 – the date of no meaning proposal appeals too? How will non-conforming Councils be punished? Councils have citizenship ceremonies throughout the year, so will an incoming Federal Government honour these rules after the upcoming election? Not so easy is the significance of January 26 in the first place. After arriving in Botany Bay between the 18th and 20th of January and realising Botany Bay was an unsuitable sight for a penal colony, Arthur Phillip and a few officers travelled from Botany Bay and landed in Sydney Cove on January 21. They returned to Botany Bay on the 23rd of January and the fleet was ordered to move to Sydney Cove. The proposed 25th of January landing of the Fleet in Sydney Cove was delayed a day until January 26, 1788, due to a severe storm. Sovereignty of ‘New Holland’ was declared on January 26 and the formal establishment of the colony of New South Wales in the name of King George III took place on February 7. So, whilst the 26th was the date New Holland was declared a sovereign possession of England, the First Fleet had been on Australian soil days earlier, and the formal declaration of the colony was near-

tives Association in 1938. In 1946 the Federal and State governments (not the Territories) agreed Australia Day should be celebrated on January 26, and the public holiday should be on the closest Monday. Australia Day was declared a public holiday (on the closest Monday of course) for all states and territories in 1994. From this short history, I ask the question – what day are we being told to celebrate? Are we celebrating the date of the second attempt to land in Sydney Cove and the raising of the British flag? From a colonisation point of view, why is the 26th of January more significant than the date James Cook landed in 1770, or the 18th of January when the First Fleet set foot in Botany Bay? If the day is to be about the foundation of our nation, what about the 1st of January being Australia Day, to celebrate the day the Australian colonies came together, and the Australian constitution came into being in 1901? But of ` Are we celebrating the course, January 1 is already a pubdate of the second attempt lic holiday, and Australians will to land in Sydney Cove and never give up an extra public holiday if one is on offer. the raising of the British The public holiday on the closest flag? ... a Monday to January 26, if it falls on ly a fortnight later – and that declaration was only of the Colony of New South Wales. James Cook and his expedition had set foot in Botany Bay 18 years earlier on April 29, 1770. Moving through the following centuries, prior to 1888, ‘Anniversary Day’ was celebrated by NSW on January 26 (not on the actual 7th of February proclamation date). Other states held proclamation or foundation day celebrations on the anniversary of each states’ establishment. The first official national Australia Day was a fundraising event for World War I on July 30, 1915. The following year the event was on the 28th of July. By 1935 all the states and territories had celebrations called variously either Australia Day, Foundation Day or Anniversary Day on January 26. The first official ‘Day of Mourning’ was held by the Australian Na-

a weekend, bears that out. We are so set on the date of the 26th being the date our foundation should be celebrated, yet flexible enough for the date of the following Monday to be the national holiday from work. (Same goes for the Queen’s Birthday public holiday, which has no correlation to her actual birthday on April 21, but is in June because it more neatly fits in the calendar and even Republicans want another day off.) The celebration of the founding of Australia on any day linked to the landing of white man is obviously anathema to Aboriginal Australians. The landing of our English forebears set off a chain of events that decimated and dispossessed the indigenous peoples; and understandably they equate Australia Day with ‘white pride in genocide’ and ‘Invasion Day’. Australia Day is touted as the day of uniting Australians but clinging to the divisive and meaningless date of January 26 has the opposite result. Surely it is time we matured as a nation and outgrew the colonial mentality. z Greg Smart lives and works in Dubbo, and is keen observer of current affairs.

THE THUMBS

Thumbs Up to sparkies Alex and Kyle at Lazer Electrical. Great work ethic. From a very happy business owner.

Thumbs Up and thanks to the driver of Council’s green bin pick-up in Englewood Drive on Wednesday last week. After initial pick up, he saw me still mowing a large lawn with lots of clippings still to go. He stopped his truck, came over and offered to pick up a full bin again when I had finished mowing later that morning. Wouldn’t it be great if all people representing Council had that fabulous winning attitude.

Thumbs down to business owners with unkempt shop fronts and footpaths. Please make an effort – this is the first thing that customers see!

Thumbs Up to Reflections  Restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was fabulous.

Thumbs Up to Justin and his staff at Midwest Foods for their tremendous service over the last two and a half years. Thank you from Denise and Mick at the Grove Takeaway.

Thumbs Up to Mark and his team at DMC. Thank you very much for your service for the past two and a half years. From Denise and Mick at the Grove Takeaway.

Thumbs down to the people who smoke around other people, even though it’s outdoors and not a designated no-smoking area. I and several others got a lungful of second-hand smoke and clothes that stink of tobacco while waiting in line to use the Return And Earn facility at West.

Thumbs Up for our incredibly good Ambulance Service. How lucky are we to have such skilled and caring professionals at our 000 fingertips! They set my aged mother up perfectly for emergency and life-saving heart surgery last week.

Thumbs Up to the doctors, nurses and support staff at Dubbo Base Hospital Emergency Department. The teamwork within ED, collaboration with other critical health services, as well as brilliant expertise and decision-making right here in Dubbo makes me so proud of our ‘locals’. We are incredibly blessed to have emergency access to such excellence, when needed – hopefully rarely/never needed!

Thumbs Up to C. Tonkin for suggesting that Council organise a community effort to get on top of the weed problem in Dubbo [Letters to the Editor, Dubbo Photo News, January 17]. Let’s hope the suggestion is implemented by Council.

Thumbs down to people who are watering the road and gutters when they water their lawns. An occasional check of the placement of your sprinklers would save the wastage of precious water – which is, literally, going down the drain.

Thumbs down to TV stations that show ads or previews for M-rated movies during what should be G-rated programming, e.g. live sports telecasts. Our young kids should be able to watch live sport without being exposed to M-rated content during the ad breaks.

Thumbs down to those who ruin our beautiful river views with your rubbish! You brought it there, you take it away.

Thumbs down to the people responsible for determining that Dubbo only needs two Return And Earn container recycling facilities. Half the time I go to use them they are full. The other times I go, there is a line-up of several people with wait times of up to an hour. And Thumbs Down to the fact that there’s no shade while waiting in line there.

 Thumbs down to Council for positioning seating along

Thunderbolts and lightning across western skies SUNDAY night, January 20, was a night where nature’s rhapsody called the tune. To quote the Queen classic, “Thunderbolts and lightning” and a generous serving of widespread rain were delivered in our region. The amount of rain varied a lot from rain guage to rain guage, but on the whole the figures being reported by readers are a joy. Leanne McDougall reported an impressive 50mm in Narromine, while 26mm fell in Eumungerie, Pauline Murphy told us. Around Dubbo, there are plenty of smiles with figures like 43mm out on

the Minore Road (Narell Morely), Katie Nolan reported 46mm in East Dubbo, and 30 mm in South Dubbo was reported by Heather Cassidy. A huge number of lightning strikes provided our locals with fantastic photo and video opportunities and the water across the Newell Highway near the Whylandra Street Railway Bridge in West Dubbo unleashed a “flood” of comments on Dubbo Photo News’ facebook page regarding the River Street proposal, that will continue to be discussed over the coming months.

the riverbank so they get no shade from any of the many shady trees nearby during the hottest parts of the day. While it’s a bad idea to put them underneath said trees, just out of range of bird droppings would mean shade for most of the day.

ing efforts – Lions Dave Eslick and Flo Westebury have been taking the ring pull tabs off the top of hundreds of cans. Originally they were being collected for another person, but that person has left town. Now Dave and Flo have many containers of these ring tops, which they’ve heard on the grapevine are accepted by some charities for their fundraising, but don't know where to send them. It will be a shame to waste their hard work! So if you have a charitable suggestion, get in touch with Dubbo Photo News and we’ll pass the info on to the Wellington Lions Club.

THE Buzz this week... it is hot and I mean really hot outside. Which means one thing in Dubbo; Australia Day is upon us once again. This time it is a long weekend too, so I wonder how many people will be taking a ‘sickie’ on Tuesday the 29th! (Hint: most modern awards ask for a doctor certificate when taking the day off after a public holiday, so have vague symptoms.) The question is what to do in Dubbo with a three-day weekend. While there are plenty of tourist options, I would ar-

gue that you simply cannot go wrong with a cold beer, wine or other in your hand and keep them coming. Every mother (mine included) would also add ‘a water in between’. Like that is going to happen! A few snags on the barbie and a few loafs of wonder-white (or hi-fibre low GI) and you’re set to celebrate what makes us Australian. Add some water activities and you are all the better. If you don’t have these facilities in your backyard, you could trek to our famous dam which is seeping

dangerously low, or to the public pool. Elston Park is also a great option for young families. You will find me at Dubbo’s only beach party, where the sand is certainly artificial but the celebrations will not be. I’ll be throwing back a few cold ones and you’ll probably find me having a snap or two on the pokies. Fortunately, I have a day off on Tuesday! To everyone, I wish you a safe long weekend and hope you enjoy time celebrating Australia Day, however you choose.

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.

Training session looks ‘outside the square’ By JOHN RYAN

DUBBO Demons senior coach Will Bunt must have taken a few courses in sports psychology – how else would he have had a huge turn-up to training when the Mercury was well into the high 40s in the city. More than 20 senior players were doing the hard yards on the bottom grounds near Sandy Beach on the weekend. “We usually train at the ground but today we decided to come down here in the shade and do a bit of ball work and a bit of skill work, and then do a bit of running on the sand down here at the riverbank, and then jump in the water and have a bit of a swim and cool down, it’s nice,” Mr Bunt said, pointing out his main job was to keep them from jumping in. “We told the blokes what we were going to do, so they knew at the end there was a

bit of a reprieve and a bit of a respite from the heat.” He said it’s important for a coach to be able to dangle a carrot in front of the players in the heat. “You need some sort of incentive because this time last year we were only getting six to eight blokes at training for pre-season, in two nights we’ve had nearly 30 blokes already,” he said. “We’ve done a bit of work in the off-season as far as motivation and trying to involve the players in it as much as the coaches and the committee – so everyone’s involved – and we’re all building towards the same thing and this is part of it.” Bunt is pleased there’s plenty of tall timber in the senior squad this season, with many players in the mid 6-foot region. “It gives us more options – when we had plenty of little blokes we had a very, very

specific game plan, and we couldn’t deviate from that because we didn’t have the player size to do it,” he said. “But this year we’ve got the option to go with that original game plan or we can get the bigger blokes to mix it up a bit. They’re all key position players so that makes it even better, we can adjust to suit ourselves and see how the game plan’s going, it makes things a lot easier.” A few former players have returned and at least three new experienced players have moved to town and have signed up with the Dubbo club. “We’ve got three assistant coaches this year so we’ve got a lot of variety, different ideas, different perspectives, we can do more targeted training with different coaches – it’s really good “I think we’ve got a big year ahead of us,” he said.

Dubbo Roos roll up for season

Heat calls Ducks to water!

By GEOFF MANN THE Dubbo Rugby Club is under new management this year with long-serving player and administrator Gerald Webster taking over from Graeme Board. Rocky and Boardy have worked closely to ensure a smooth changeover and with Wallaby Beau Robinson returning for his second year as Director of Coaching, the club is in good stead. Last Friday night, players and supporters set aside the training gear for a less laborious event. The annual bowls night was a resounding success with plenty of familiar faces and some new bods as well as Roos fans. The women are keen to return to playing this year after a decade or so hiatus. The former Blue Flyers were outstanding in their first coming and are hoping to re-energise some of the originals with fresh, young rugby players. PHOTOS: COURTESY GEMMA MADIGAN-BEACH

AFTER consuming keenly contested hams over Christmas, Dubbo Ducks swimmers have been drawn back to the pool. Is it to lose those kilos, or the heat, or are they all so dedicated they want to be back in form with the lure of the home pond at the RSL Aquatic Centre on track to reopen over the next few months? Whatever the reason – to escape the heat would be a more than adequate response – the Ducks are back on the pond at the Aquatic Centre Olympic Pool and already setting goals. 24 swimmers flew off the blocks on Sunday, January 13, then 26 last Sunday, and several of the “old” Ducks were welcomed back with open wings. Louise Taylor, Lucy Taylor, Mike Twohill, Chantelle Clarke, Glen Smith and Max Naden earned their first points of the season in Week 2 and are keen to add to their tally in coming weeks. “Superfish” Lucas Salmon blitzed his more experienced flock in the first 30m event of the year but was out of the placings after handicappers got hold of him

for week two! He’s only young but there’s no doubt he’ll learn some of the “rules” around “the table”!

It’s a scene sure to be played out across Dubbo and surrounding towns over the next few months as schools return and the annual carnivals click into gear. Photographer Mel Pocknall enjoyed the drive in his air-conditioned car and he liked the look of the water but we couldn’t tempt him into the Yabbies’ pool!

CRICKET

State cricket challenge underway By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL PERHAPS we should plan one of these carnivals each week for the next month after the hundreds of young cricketers brought rain to the city on Sunday night. A concerted effort by local clubs and Council minimised disruption to Monday’s 13s and 14s matches in Dub-

bo and Wellington. A couple of games were transferred to synthetic for Day One but all matches have been on turf since. Visitors returning from previous seasons commented on the brilliant new picket fences at Victoria Park. “Without doubt the best venue for cricket carnivals anywhere in NSW,” has been the frequently heard comment.

In cricket, Ben Patterson (“Patto”) is the latest local to represent at NSW Country level and perform strongly enough to be named in the Australian Country team. He is the third in recent years to achieve the honour following the successes of Tim Cox and Jordan Moran, who, incidentally, has been named in the national team for the third successive year. This year Jordan played for his adopted state of Victoria. David Tink was another who featured in the NSW Bush Blues for many years through the 1980s and also played for Australian Country. Bert Pearce, Brock Larance and Patto have made their names with Australian Indigenous teams while Marty Jeffrey continues to shine at the Imparja Cup and other age representative carnivals. Dubbo has produced plenty of other cricketing champions including Ian Drake, Max Ison, Chris Killen, Nathan Pilon, Don Nash, David Carson, Dave Taylor and talented fast bowler Emma Hughes. We have developed a strong Indoor Cricket culture under the guidance of Jeff and Nea Costello, Greg King, Dan French and Don Skinner. In recent seasons Tom Coady, Adali Shipp, Anthony Atlee, Thomas and Patrick Nelson and Mitch Russo are amongst a host of NSW and Australian players. Our swimmers have been to the top. Peter Coughlan (1976 Olympics), Dyana Calub (Olympic, World and Commonwealth Games medallist) and young talents like Aspen Moore, Angus McDonald and Cal Smith are on the way up. Dubbo also has NSW Ultimate Frisbee players/coaches Jen Hoar and Ashleigh Boatman. Golf has recently produced NSW reps Ella Murray, Lachie Jones, Matt Gleeson, Melissa Russell and
