GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS

Numbers up for new kid on tourist block... not so happy holidays for others

By LYDIA PEDRANA

JUST three months after opening, the Royal Flying Doctor Service Visitor Experience centre in Dubbo welcomed its 5000th visitor. Since launching in September last year, the facility has quickly become a must-do attraction for locals and visitors alike. New Dubbo residents Kyle and Tracie Smart and their two children, Edith and Toby, were the 5000th visitors to walk through the doors of the state-of-the-art facility in Dubbo’s airport precinct. “I think it tells the story of the Royal Flying Doctor Service really well and makes you appreciate

what an important service it is for people in the bush,” Mr Smart said of his experience. Head of tourism for the RFDS south eastern section, John Larkin, said they were “really pleased” that so many people had visited the exhibit in such a short space of time. Mr Larkin believes the attraction has been successful not only because it’s informative, but also because it provides an escape from the heat. “I think the story has been told well and people like interactivity,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “They’re surprised by the technology I think too; plus it’s one of

the only indoor, air-conditioned tourist attractions in town.” To Mr Larkin’s point, the dire drought is believed to be behind an overall drop in visitation numbers for Dubbo and the region. According to Dubbo Regional Council (DRC), visitation to Visitor Information Centres dropped by 20 per cent during the month of December 2019 when compared with the same period in 2018. The Wellington Caves sold just 1989 tickets last December, down from 2583 tickets in the December prior.

Holiday reading to help beat the heat WELCOME to another Holiday Edition of Dubbo Photo News. We’re all looking for ways to beat the heat, and your local newspaper is doing its bit by bringing you plenty of good reading again this week. So sit back with a cool drink, in a cool place, as you flick through these pages. The first five days of 2020 delivered 40-plus degree days here in the city, but we are sparing more than just a thought for the bushfire victims elsewhere in Australia. The smoky air we’ve been breathing, and inconveniences such as the Dubbo-Sydney XPT service having to be replaced by busses due to rail line damage in the mountains, pale into comparison to the experiences of families who have lost everything to bushfire. Generally, they need money, not goods – read more about how you can help inside today’s paper.

BUSHFIRE DONATIONS

Locals saddle up to help those in need By JOHN RYAN HORSE owners in bushfire affected areas may get some help from fellow riding enthusiasts from the Dubbo area. Anneke Sell has been given the task of collecting donated horse equipment from this region and said every little bit helps when you’ve lost everything. “Some of our fellow Western Leisure competitors and certainly a lot of horse people down in the Cobargo and Sydney areas have lost everything – their house, everything – so we’re just looking for donations to help them along to get them through for now until they can put other measures in place,” Mrs Sell told Dubbo Photo News. “At the minute I’m only collecting horse gear. Anything as long as it’s in good repair, nothing that’s half worn out. Saddles, bridles, halters, brushes, vet supplies – so they can treat their horses if they’re burnt – anything that is spare or excess, feed bins, anything.” Mrs Sell knows only too well how devastating it is when fire claims your goods, even when you’re insured it’s no guarantee. “It’s dislocating, it can be a long, long time between the event and getting any compensation,” she said. “A bit over a year ago, I lost all my everyday horse stuff (because of) an electrical fault, so I know full well what it’s like when that happens and you’re stuck with try-

ing to sort everything out yourself. “People wishing to help out can find me on Facebook. They can message me there and I can tell them where to drop off any donated goods and I’ll take it to Sydney in the coming weeks,” she said. She said many horse owners often have plenty of excess gear lying around that gets little if any use.

“I had a lot of stuff sitting around before the fire and a lot of people would have plenty of unused gear, that’s what we’re hoping to see donated – even the kiddie stuff, like the small helmets, because the pony clubs will be affected as well,” Mrs Sell said. It’s not all just about the donation itself, which means those being given the donated items don’t

have to find cash for this part of their lives. She said it’s all about morale, and that people who’ve lost everything will be buttressed by small acts of kindness and goodwill. “It’s just people helping people. It’s very important, that’s Australia.”

Good news and bad news on visitor numbers Continued from page 1

The Old Dubbo Gaol has also taken a hit, with visitation down 12.22 per cent for the December 2019 period, compared with December 2018. Furthermore, Taronga Western Plains Zoo has also experienced a decline is visitation over the past month, with zoo director Steve Hinks explaining that while it is difficult to isolate a single reason for the drop, he believes the nation’s natural disasters are preventing people from travelling. While expressing his sympathies to the communities and wildlife di-

rectly impacted by the drought and fires, Mr Hinks encouraged people to continue visiting drought-affected areas like Dubbo. “This is one way in which people from coastal and metropolitan areas can help drought affected areas – by visiting these communities, towns and regional cities,” he said. “This can involve staying in local accommodation, buying dinner, coffee or breakfast at a local café and filling up with fuel at a local service station. “Every dollar spent by visitors helps the many local businesses doing it tough in times of drought.”

Although the DRC doesn’t have any hard data to explain the drop in visitation numbers, staff at the Visitor Information Centre have apparently responded to many enquiries about water availability in the region. Mayor Ben Shields urged locals to spread the word “that Dubbo is still here, that it’s still a fun, family holiday destination”. “Service is still great and our water supply will be able to cater for visitors,” he said. “Our tourism is just as precious as our water, which is why we need visitors to keep flowing into the Dubbo region.”

Smart decision: New local residents Kyle and Tracie Smart with children Toby and Edith were the 5000th visitors through the doors of the “new kid” on the regional tourist block, the Royal Flying Doctor Service Visitor Experience. PHOTO: RFDS VISITOR EXPERIENCE

Dubbo Photo News January 9-15, 2020 REGIONAL AIRFARES

Gloves off for a fare fight By JOHN RYAN

Self-styled Fairer Airfares Advocate, Hamish Griffin, has taken the fare fight against “appalling rip-offs and price gouging” all the way to a Senate enquiry. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

HAMISH Griffin has lived in Cloncurry for about six years and while that Queensland town is a long way from Dubbo, he shares the passion to see the exorbitant cost of regional airline flights slashed. To that end, and off his own bat, he’s become a Fairer Airfares Advocate. Recent reports have put Australia’s country flights as the world’s most expensive and with some people at times paying well over $500 just to get from Dubbo to Sydney, it’s created a class division between people who can afford to fly – many of whom have their fares paid by various government departments – and those who can’t afford to make the trip. Mr Griffin has caught the ear of airline bosses along with state and federal politicians. His advocacy campaign began after he tried to book weekend flights from Cloncurry to Townsville for his wife and then-three-year-old son. “Out on a Thursday and back on the Saturday and it was going to cost over $4500. I was gobsmacked and started looking at other flights and found we could fly on the same dates, return, from Sydney to LA, New York, London and Hawaii for less money. We could have flown to Auckland and back every day for four days for less money,” Mr Griffin said. He started looking at other flights and found some “absolutely appall-

ing rip-offs and blatant price gouging”. This prompted him to lobby government at all levels to “hold the two major airlines to account” and eventually a federal senate inquiry was called. “I was called as a witness at the Cloncurry and Brisbane hearings and I also attended the Darwin hearing at which Qantas was grilled by then deputy chair, Senator Barry O’Sullivan. “I’m pleased to say that Qantas seems to have taken notice of what I and others have been calling for and have brought in a resident discount scheme and most recently a sale on resident fares which has seen a dramatic reduction in fares,” he said. Mr Griffin is planning to stand for a seat on his local council in the upcoming local government elections to be held on March 28 this year. “If given the opportunity to represent my community, it will help solidify my position as someone that will not go quietly into the night and as someone who should be taken seriously as a strong advocate for a fair go for people in the bush,” Mr Griffin said. “No-one I know is looking for a free ride or even a cheap deal, just a fair go.” He’s keen to see communities across Australia banding together to create a downward pressure on regional airfares. *John Ryan is an elected councillor on Dubbo Regional Council.

Locals to protest over fossil fuels

DUBBO locals concerned about unprecedented fires and heat waves across Australia, making headlines around the world, will meet for one hour on Friday, January 10, from 5.30pm, outside the Dubbo office of Minister for Regional Services, Decentralisation and Local Government, Assistant Trade and Investment Minister and Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton. The protest will coincide with international protests scheduled to take place also on January 10, at Australian Embassies around the world.

Bushfire support: Locals put hands up in this time of need By LYDIA PEDRANA IN trying times, the true human spirit often shines and in the midst of the country’s bushfire emergency, our own community is rallying together to lend a helping hand. Big and small businesses, charities and individuals from around the region are digging deep to show support for those affected by the fires. Salvation Army Orana Captain David Sutcliffe said locals had already been extremely generous with donations, but reminded people that money was the best way to assist. “We’ve had a lot of people come in and drop off food and clothes and things like that, but you can imagine how difficult that is for us to then get it somewhere and then match those donations up with people that need them – it’s quite cost prohibitive for us to do that,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “With the money, 100 per cent of it is going towards the victims of these fires. We are not putting any administration costs on or anything like that, we are wearing those costs internally and making sure that every dollar is going to where it’s needed most at the moment.” Mr Sutcliffe said tax deductable monetary donations to the Salvos can be made online, at Woolworths or at the Salvation Army Orana office in Gipps Street. Within minutes of this scribe publishing a comment on Facebook asking what local small businesses are doing to raise funds, an overwhelming number of responses flooded in, proving the power of humanity. Following are just a few examples of how the community is supporting those affected by the tragic fires: z Ashcroft’s IGA in South Dubbo is encouraging customers to buy and donate slabs of water this week. For every pallet, or 65 cartons, donated by customers, the business will match it and deliver to those who need it next week. As of Tuesday, Ashcrofts was already on its fourth pallet of water and hopes to reach six by the end

of the week. z Freight company Western Parcel Express (WPE) also delivered more than 17,000 bottles of drinking water to firefighters on the NSW south coast with the help of Midwest Foods and Liquor Wholesale, and donations from other businesses and individuals. z The Village Bakery Café’s wholesale business, Earlyrise Baking, has donated enough bread for 6,800 sandwiches to the Rural Fire Service. z Meanwhile, Robyn from Yummy Yarn and Co is busily crocheting nesting bowls and joey pouches for injured wildlife. She is also offering wool to anyone else who wants to make them. z Local beautician, Maddy Fisher from Maddison Beauty Studio is offering $20 spray tans until Saturday and donating all proceeds to the NSW RFS. z On a larger scale, JB HiFi and Reading Cinemas are both accepting donations on behalf of the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery appeal, with Reading Cinemas also pledging $20,000 to the cause. z Priceline Pharmacy Dubbo has also knocked 25 per cent off eye

WARREN-BASED tyre recycler Green Distillation Technologies (GDT) has signed a deal to build its first USA-based plant. “The US, like most countries around the world, has a significant old tyre disposal problem and generates in excess of 250 million end-of-life tyres a year,” according to Trevor Bayley (pictured), chief operating officer of GDT. “By contrast, Australia reaches 25 million, but the number of old tyres is increasing fast in India and China and the world total is now in excess of one-and-a-half-billion a year. “In the light of this burgeoning e n v i r o n m e nt a l disposal problem our approach provides a recycling solution as we turn a problem into valuable and saleable materials,” Mr Bayley said. GDT recycles tyres into petrol, diesel, jet fuel and other petroleum-based products such as plastics, paints, water filtration, printers ‘ink, paint, electrodes, graphene, toothpaste, eyeliner, mascara, nail polish, eye shadow, blushes, rouge and lipstick. Mr Bayley said steel reinforcing mesh and beading of a tyre can be fully recycled for use in new tyres or as scrap steel. “What we have done is a world breakthrough and we believe that in time our technology will eventually become the preferred means of recycling old tyres throughout the world.”

Fighting back: Town digs deep to challenge bad press By JOHN RYAN WELLINGTON community leaders say the town has been fighting back against the odds. Being labelled the South Pole in a national news item – a reference to problems with the drug “ice” – battered the town’s civic image but now the resilience of residents is helping stage a fightback against that PR nightmare. Wellington Arts president Lisa Thomas said the town has so much going for it “We’re a small town digging deep to recover from bad press, drought impacts and the like. Digging deep for the community is much more than the obvious “ Mrs Thomas said. “Look at what supports many small townships and sport always come to the fore. “Wellington last year found a way to demonstrate that we are a community that is passionate about winning. We are proud of our community and we will work hard for positive recognition,” she said. She said Wellington achieved the mighty results

of winning the 2019 Rugby Union finals after years of defeat, all thanks to support from strong and basic leadership, the patronage of community supporters and members and the passion of players. It’s difficult for small towns to field teams and have success in a single football code, especially when competing against much larger centres. Yet the Wellington Cowboys Rugby League team won a hard-fought Group 11 premiership as well, beat-

ing the highly fancied Dubbo CYMS powerhouse. Wellington also won the inter towns girls’ soccer, with the men’s team only going down in extra time It’s not just in the sporting arena that the town is finding success. “The Wellington community is the hub of the central west region between Dubbo, Orange and Mudgee and is working hard to identify as a great alternative to other expensive townships, through interactions with the arts,”

Mrs Thomas said. “The Wellington Eisteddfod had more than 3000 entrants, making it one of the biggest events in Central NSW. “Wellington Arts held a coinciding three-week open event for artists and sculptors to exhibit – promoting and selling local artists’ works. Wellington Arts and Sculpture Festival attracted more than 1000 visitors from all regions as well as international visitors with a feature international renowned artist, Rob Bast,” she said. The Fong Lees Lane celebration attracted a massive crowd to check out the town’s rich Chinese heritage, and is an event which has created much excitement and attracted visitors from across the region. Mrs Thomas believes so many locals are jumping on board to help with these sorts of events because they’ve tasted unlikely success and have the confidence the town can create a good cultural vibe. And because of that very success, she said people from outside the town are flocking to attend.

MEMORIES MADE

Make a Wish makes Jackson’s wish come true LIKE many youngsters, Jackson Fleeton, had long dreamed of meeting his favourite television character. Thanks to the wonderful organisation Make a Wish, the Dubbo lad’s wish became a reality recently when it was arranged for him to go to Sydney to connect with “Robbo” from popular long-running TV series Home and Away. “Robbo” – played by actor Jake Ryan – is a police officer just like Jackson’s dad, and meeting him was a magic occasion for Jackson and his family. “Jackson was picked up from his apartment at Surry Hills and taken to the Chanel 7 studio in Eveleigh,” said his mum, Cher Fleeton. “Here he was greeted by his favourite actor, Jake Ryan, and a Home and Away representative. “Together they ensured that Jackson met other cast members such as Tim Franklin, Georgie Parker and James Stewart, who were all working on set. “He was also given an opportunity to assist the director, explore the costume department and meet the makeup artists for the show. At the completion of his visit, Jackson was taken by limo through the city back to the apartments at Surry Hills.” Jackson had a smile “from ear to ear

Classic Cars and Coffee... and cash for a local cause DUBBO Classic Cars and Coffee is without doubt one of the city’s most anticipated local events. Car and bike owners travel from near and far to assemble in Victoria Park to show off their pride and joy, with the cost to bring their vehicles being a humble gold coin donation. But just look how much money is raised – a whopping $7200 last year – through the dedication of organisers Owen and Karen De Carle and their passionate band of helpers. Their efforts are praiseworthy, and

TRIVIA TEST

a special mention also goes to Village Bakery Café which not only serves up the coffee and other morning food essentials, but generously donates to the yearly total. Make A Wish Dubbo is the nominated charity and the money stays local, helping to look after locals. If the whispers are true, Dubbo Classic Cars and Coffee will be back to a monthly get together on the first Sunday of the month, with the first event for 2020 happening on Sunday, February 2.

LIFE is full of little punctures. That’s why the Royal Far West’s Ride for Country Kids in May this year is raising funds for rural and remote country kids to connect with the health care they need. Departing Dubbo on Sunday, May 24, riders will cycle 450 kilometres to Cobar to arrive Tuesday, May 26. Individual or team entries are available. The overall aim is to raise $600,000 to assist rural and regional kids who currently face a 30-week wait time for referrals and access to essential health care. With close to 100 years of history in country NSW, the Royal Far West riders are greeted with delight as they stop in each town and interact with the community. The event has been sanctioned by Cycling Australia and requires membership prior to participation.

Is 2020 the start of a new decade?

POPULAR OPINION

Fletcher’s fuse unlit as fireworks cause a bang

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY THERE’S a clear, simple answer to that question: It depends on who you ask. The internet is awash with conflict over this matter, even dictionaries don’t agree, while a Dubbo Photo News Facebook poll has revealed the majority view is that 2020 is the start of a new decade. One local, Kelly Wood, suggested there is no Year 1 in the first ever decade. “Someone born in 1980 wouldn’t be seen as a ‘70s baby, would they? Also, 2001 instead of 2000, would have been the beginning of the new millennium, using that reasoning,” she offered. Another resident, Katie Hall, proposed: “2000 was start of new decade – 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09 is 10 years.”

By LYDIA PEDRANA ROGER FLETCHER won’t let naysayers ruin Dubbo’s annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display. While more than 6,000 people flooded through the showground gates to see the specky sparkle of colour, others took to social media arguing that the pyrotechnic exhibit should be canned. In the lead up to the event, one Facebook user said, “Very unhappy with the decision to have fireworks,” and another suggested the money spent on fireworks be donated to a “better cause”. Someone else labelled the event as “poor taste,” while another said, “I’m still waiting for the headlines about Dubbo having been wiped out by a massive, fireworks-induced conflagration”. Others defended the fireworks writing, “Sounds great. Keep some money flowing for small local business owners and bring the community together to celebrate

and have fun,” and “Awesome, can’t wait, (the) kids will be getting excited now”. The Fletcher family, of Fletcher International Exports, provided the fireworks which were hosted by the Dubbo Show Society with the support of Dubbo Regional Council and sponsored by several local businesses, including this publication. “Can I say it in very plain language: in my life, there’s always negatives, but don’t worry about minorities,” Mr Fletcher told Dubbo Photo News. “We will do this for as long as people want it and we wor-

ry about the majorities, not the minorities.” Mr Fletcher said it was all about bringing the community together and giving the next generation something fun to do on New Year’s Eve. “My wife loves to do it because she thinks there’s so much on for other people at Christmas time and the kids deserve something – that’s what she always says, you’ve got to look after the kids too.” Despite the backlash, a total of 6,045 people turned out at the event and Mr Fletcher expressed his thanks to Sue Hood and the Dubbo Show Society for their efforts saying, “they did a massive job – mine is the easy bit”. Mrs Hood, secretary of the Dubbo Show Society, said the evening was a great success, noting that the fireworks would not have gone ahead if deemed unsafe. “There were a lot of happy people and a lot of happy faces and

we can only improve and get better next year, the fireworks were amazing,” she said. “We were in consultation with (local fire authorities) and if it had been dangerous, they would have told us so, but they gave us the okay. “If it was going to cause an issue, we wouldn’t have done it.” Dubbo Fire Station commander Simon Bracht also confirmed that based on weather conditions, there was no need to cancel the display and that event organisers had a number of firefighting facilities on standby. “It was my crew who was on for the day and I went out and liaised with the on-site personnel there and I was pretty satisfied with the processes they put in place,” he said. “The possibility of cancelling them was certainly discussed, but it wasn’t deemed as a requirement at the time, there wasn’t sufficient danger to do so.”

However, by definition a decade is any 10 years. Thinking otherwise shows what statisticians call “round number bias”, but is a really easy cultural way of pigeonholing history, like referring to the ‘40s, ‘50s, ‘60s and so on. As resident Janette Coulter said: “The new decade starts at 2020 and finishes at 2029 (the ‘20s). The next decade is the ‘30s, which starts at 2030 and ends on 2039: the ‘30s. Tooooo easy.” Lenny Cashel however pointed out that as there was no Year 0, so “2021 is the start of the new decade”. His view is backed up by the year numbering system (Anno Domini – “In the Year of Our Lord”) which underlies the calendar we use in Australia (Gregorian). In that system, Year 1 BC was followed by Year 1 AD, meaning the first decade of our timeline was years 1 to 10, the second decade was years 11 to 20, and so on. Semantics aside, the point of it all might be to have a Happy New Year, and beyond.

UNIQUE BUSINESS

Local artisan takes cutting-edge craft to the world By JOHN RYAN MARK NUGENT is part of a growing band of Dubbo professionals attracting national attention, and being lauded for cutting-edge work in their chosen fields. He’s been quietly working away at coachbuilding, the almost forgotten art of hand-crafting metal into complex, flowing shapes and curves. The largest market for this work is in classic cars and one of his creations, a replica AC Cobra, recently won the trophy for best kit car at Fuchs Adelaide Auto Expo, an event which incorporates Extreme Auto Expo – South Australia’s premier indoor car show; Adelaide’s reborn Hot Rod show; the Aussie and Muscle Car Cruise on Friday; and the American-centric Zippel Cruise. Street Machine magazine described car, which belongs to Scott Bormann, in glowing terms: “With a hand-made body gas-welded by Mark Nugent at Nugent Coachbuilders and fitted to a full aluminium semi-monocoque chassis by Absolute Pace, it presents as a fresh take on the AC Cobra replica theme. “Up front sits a 575hp (horsepower) supercharged LSA lifted from a Gen-F HSV, backed by a Tremec TR6060 six-speeder, hauled up by Brembo brakes and kept on the tarmac by a fully independent, race car-style pushrod suspension system. “Classic Smiths instruments and a woodgrain wheel juxtapose the tech in the engine bay, as do the classic Halibrand knock-offs, complete with plenty of sidewall. Just imagine driving it.” Mark Nugent has an incredible number of projects going through his Dubbo shop but remembers this one well. “It was a Cobra 427 body and the chassis was an Absolute Pace chassis. We built the aluminium body for that car and someone else had fitted that body for us up in Queensland. Then it came back to us to have a few more details done like a hard top and some side pipes fitted and some other smaller bits and pieces just to be done on it. After he got it back to Adelaide, the owner scotch-brite-finished it and entered it in the car show and it won a tro-

phy,” Mr Nugent said. “It was a difficult hardtop to make. It was gull wing hard top and doors so it was quite complicated,” he said, but conceded he has no idea how much time was spent on his part of the project. “Oh, crikey, gee whiz, I don’t know! It’s countless – I don’t even know the number of hours we put into it.” His work is so constantly busy, Mr Nugent has little time to follow his creations and see where they end up. “Yeah, it’s good. I mean that was a surprise to me to see that win. I hadn’t even been following that car because once a car leaves us, it’s not that I don’t think about it again but I don’t normally know where in the world it goes but to see that get up and win that trophy was interesting,” Mr Nugent said. And he believes people are no longer surprised when they see all sorts of quality work coming out of regional centres like Dubbo. “Not anymore, I don’t think. The world’s shrunk very quickly so I don’t think it’s much of a surprise – you could be anywhere now, doing anything, so restoring cars like this and building them from scratch (isn’t so surprising). It’s a good location to be out here doing it because you’re away from all the hustle and bustle, you can concentrate,” Mr Nugent said, remarking he’s now getting loads of inquiry for the fabrication of vintage aircraft parts such as Spitfire oil tanks. “(I’m getting enquiries for) more and more aircraft stuff. That just keeps coming through more and more. We have Spitfire pieces to do and P-38 Lightning aircraft components – at the moment we’ve just finished building a P-38 gun bay door,” he said, referring to components that require incredible attention to specific tolerances. “The accuracy has to be pretty tight. With the gun bay door we were dead accurate and with the Spitfire oil tank we were dead accurate too. It has to fit in a (specific) hole. Really, at the end of the day, with the car stuff, you always have to be extremely accurate there too, but with aircraft there are just that little bit more exacting standards.”

Meaty holiday jobs a boost for local students By JOHN RYAN THESE days the go-to jobs for school kids seem to be confined to fast-food outlets and retail shops but one Dubbo business is home to plenty of diverse career-starting opportunities. Dubbo Photo News discovered this hive of school holiday employment activity while catching up with students who are spending their break working at different labouring tasks with Fletcher International Exports. A boarder at Bathurst’s St Stanislaus, 16-year-old Deykyn Haley comes home to Dubbo during holiday breaks. “I had nothing to do in the holidays so my parents brought me out (to Fletchers). Mum has some connections out here and I wanted to make some cash in the holidays,” Deykyn said, remarking that it’s vital kids his age start to earn their own money and realise you have to work in life to get ahead. “It’s pretty important. You can (still) do the things that you want to do – it’s better than just sitting at home being bored, it’s fun, you make mates. I’d recommend it to other kids my age. I’d say do it, you don’t really need qualifications to start out, just apply and see if you get accepted.” Deykyn said he’s “doing a bit of everything, at the moment – getting meat off the conveyor belt, getting legs and shoulders and throwing them onto another conveyor belt to get them sealed”. ••• DAMIEN JENKINS, who is also 16, studies at Dubbo College Senior Campus and loves the work at Fletchers. “My brother works here and told me about it and I thought it would be a good experience for me, to get out of the house and do something worthwhile,” Damien said. “My mates thought that I won’t last out here, I’m proving them wrong. When I get back to school I’ll tell them that it’s a very interesting experience, coming out here and learning new things.” ••• JOE KAINUKU, 16, is also a student at Senior Campus and this isn’t his first stint working at the plant. “My dad works out here. I first came to work here in the school holidays when I was 14 and it was a bit of pocket money and stuff,” Joe said. “It’s way better than just asking your parents for money all the time. I feel better earning it. When I buy something with the money I’ve earned, I feel way better. “When I’m back at school I’ll tell my mates it’s good working out here and that you earn pretty good money for your age. It’s pretty good (money) for a 16-year-old,” he said. ••• HIS 14-year-old sister Brooklyn is at South Campus but working alongside Joe these holidays. “Dad just kind of pushed me to come out and earn some of my own

money so I don’t have to ask him for money all the time,” Brooklyn said. “It’s good because you know what you’re getting yourself into for future jobs and stuff. It makes you feel good when you earn something for yourself.” She said her friends are gobsmacked that she’s taken on an adult role. “They think it would be really crap and really hard but it’s not, it’s easy work and good money,” Brooklyn said. “I’d tell any girls my age it’s a really good learning experience and you learn how to communicate with other people and stuff. It’s not intimidating at all, everyone makes you feel welcome.” ••• THOMAS PROBERTS, 14, studies at Delroy Campus and loves the holiday work so much he doesn’t want to go back to school. “My dad works out here and for two years I’ve just wanted to get a job and work out here and have some independence,” Thomas said. “It’s great working out here. I’d recommend it to other people. At the moment I’m in the hot boning room and I get the tenderloins, peel them and take the fat off them. “I’m going to go back to school after the holidays and say to my mates, look at all my money! They wouldn’t try it but I think they should. Kids and their families don’t understand how good it is out here,” he said. ••• ANTON KAINUKU, father of Joe and Brooklyn, has worked for the company for three years and said it’s incredible that his kids can come out to work, earn their own money and be accepted as part of the chain. “Oh, it’s terrific I reckon. I’m so proud of them to get out here and have a go, it’s out of their comfort zone obviously but they get to know the world, get to meet people from so many nationalities, I just think it’s terrific and it saves me a coin,” Mr Kainuku said. He said while many parents who know nothing about the plant may be wary of their children working in an industry with a tough reputation, he has no drama at all with kids being on the floor. “No, none at all – everyone’s just been so helpful for them, they’ve helped them out in everything and welcomed them and treated them as one of the workers.” Adam Proberts agrees, and is proud that his 14-year-old has stepped up so well. “It’s good training, he’s an eager young guy trying to earn an honest dollar,” Mr Proberts said. “It’s a good way to start your working life, it’s a good basis to learn the way of life and how to earn a dollar and it’s a great stepping stone to build a future career in anything. My other son started out here early and now he’s in the army. “I think any employer who sees on kids’ resumes that they’ve worked out here while they’re still at school would be impressed,” he said.

Back, students Thomas Proberts, Deykyn Haley, Joe Kainuku, front, Damien Jenkins, Brooklyn Kainuku, who are all earning not only money but a range of new skills at Fletcher International over the school holidays.

AS the third month of Level 4 water restrictions dawns in the Dubbo district, some local businesses are helping residents adapt and monitor their usage of the precious resource. Colin Honeysett is a plumber, drainer and roofer who has installed water restrictors and done many more leakage repairs since the restrictions were implemented. “Restrictors are good as they only let out a third of the water which is ample. They also make people more aware.” Mr Honeysett said residents have generally become more careful about water usage in recent months. “I think people are more aware of leaks and take it in hand more quickly. They are picking up on drips and leaks as soon as they are happening. Overall, they are very aware and they

are repairing any further leaks really quickly. Any form of leak, they are paying more attention.” Mr Honeysett believes water conservation is important but that Dubbo users were compliant. “Everyone is conscious of it. Residents are more aware. It’s bringing attention that they need to do repairs to ensure they are saving water.” Some of Mr Honeysett’s work has included gutter renewal and other related repairs. Some of his clients have rainwater tanks while others are on town supply. “There’s also a lot of people using greywater,” he said. Layton Allen is a sprinkler systems specialist who agrees that residents are more aware of water wastage in the current climate. His work includes pump systems, bores and tanks as well as sprinkler installation and advice.

“The systems they are allowed to use at the moment, it’s all programmable,” he explained. “With some new systems, they can have control and they can have a flow meter that tells them how much water they are using.” Terry Hocking runs an irrigation and trenching service and believes that people are mostly abiding by the rules.

They’re not putting in new lawns, most people are doing the right thing.” According to Mr Hocking, residents are also repairing equipment to save water. “People are doing a lot of repair work on pumps around the place,”

he said. His advice to everyone trying to keep their garden alive is to be very vigilant. “Water at night, after dark. Put a bit of water from 8pm onwards, not early morning. Give it time to soak into the plants. Try to do what you can in landscaping, it’s very hard with town water. You just need the rain. But when we get it is anyone’s guess.”

ENERGY CRISIS

As power use surges, Minister urges: switch off By JOHN RYAN LAST Saturday evening, local residents in towns and villages such as Eumungerie suffered power outages and brown-outs, just some of an estimated 30,000 homes across NSW which were blacked out. The power losses were caused by multiple factors, but on one of the hottest days of the years NSW Environment Minister Matt Kean issued a public plea calling on the state’s residents to turn off wash-

Power goes down in multiple villages as heat fires up ing machines and dryers and not to run air conditioners so hard after the power grid suffered a severe disruption when transmission lines from the Snowy power plants. The minister’s statement was straight to the point: “Have just lost transmission lines in snowy region. “Expected tight supply situa-

tion around 6pm. “Asking everyone to reduce unnecessary electricity usage. “Please turn off pool pumps, lights in unoccupied rooms and avoid using washing machines and dishwashers.” Some 2000 megawatts of electricity simply vanished from the state’s grid just as temperatures neared 50 degrees across many

parts of the state and Mr Kean said the Australian Energy Market Regulator (AMO) believes the call to cut power usage saved between 200-300 megawatts of demand, with no surplus of supply at that time. At the time of writing, specialists hadn’t been able to ascertain the full extent of the damage, but early indications are that smoke

from nearby wildfires caused an electrical arc on trunk transmission lines, with that emergency in turn triggering protective failsafe automatic shut-downs. He said AEMO and Transgrid, along with the energy distributors, were working hard to keep the power supply stable. Dubbo Photo News has had reports of power being lost in Eumungerie, Whylandra, Rawsonville, Burrabadine, and along the Minore and Bunglegumbie Roads out of the city.

COOLER CONDITIONS

FEELING A LITTLE DUSTY? DON’T LET THE HOT AIR CON YOU By JOHN RYAN AS owner of Yard King Dubbo, Mat Sharp understands the importance of routine maintenance to ensure the tools he depends on for his living won’t let him down when he’s at his busiest, but he was shocked when he found that the split system air conditioner he’d installed just one year ago wouldn’t cool his house down. He said with so many dust storms in recent times he thought he’d better check the filters. “It was a new unit and basically it was operating at about five degrees higher than it was last summer. I was thinking the filters couldn’t be too bad, considering it was a new unit, but I found there was actually three or four millimetres of thick dirt and mud in it. After cleaning it, the temperature reduced by seven degrees in an hour,” Mr Sharp said. “My unit was pretty new but there’d be a lot of older units out there and with the number of dust storms we’ve had over the past two-year period, there would be a lot of air conditioners struggling and not performing at their actual capacity. “Cleaning it was a very easy thing to do. Before I cleaned it, we were trying to reduce the temperature on the unit to make the house cooler when now, instead of having it at 18 degrees

and trying to make it work, we have it sitting at 22 degrees and it’s actually cooler than when we had it set at 18,” he said. He blames the frequent dust storms which have been commonplace during the long and ongoing drought and believes many other people may have overlooked this routine maintenance issue that isn’t such a problem in normal years. “One of the main things you have to do is look after your gear and doing routine checking and servicing and maintaining it. Obviously down the track it helps cost-wise and also with the efficiency of the product,” Mr Sharp said. “I quite often get on YouTube or Google and you can find most general information on how to service things from other people, or workshop manuals and service books and stuff like that.” Commercial air conditioning specialist Brett Williams from Williams Oriel Services said dust is a problem on both the indoor and outdoor components of split systems. “The dust build-up on the outdoor condenser will definitely affect the performance of the system,” Mr Williams said. “There are filters on the indoor unit which possibly may be blocked if they haven’t been looked at for 12 months. If they were completely blocked the system could shut down due to poor air flow.”

PHO PHOTO: HOTO TO: TO: DUB D U BO P PH PHO HOTO O NEW EW WS/ S/J /JO OHN HN RY R AN

Mr Sharp thinks many people who don’t have their air cons working super efficiently may simply be putting up with it, believing it’s the heat itself causing the dramas, and that specialised tradies would be too busy at this time of year. Commercial air conditioning specialist Brett Williams from Williams Oriel Services said dust is a problem on both the indoor and outdoor components of split systems. “The dust build-up on the out-

door condenser will definitely affect the performance of the system,” Mr Williams said. “There are filters on the indoor unit which possibly may be blocked if they haven’t been looked at for 12 months. If they were completely blocked, the system could shut down due to poor air flow.” Dubbo Photo News urges people who don’t have the required expertise to perform maintenance on the outside units of spilt systems to contact an air

conditioning tradespeople. With these units operating inefficiently, they could be collectively placing a huge strain on the state’s power network. “I think the past couple of years in this drought situation, with the extra dust storms and high winds, there’s no doubt that the type of machinery that requires air filtration would definitely be sucking in a lot more dust and causing problems, for sure,” Mr Sharp said. Already this week some areas across the region, such as Eumungerie, have suffered power outages and brown-outs because transmission lines from power stations in the Snowy Mountain have been disrupted by wildfires, and with the extreme heat most houses with air conditioners would be running them at full blast. Meanwhile, Mr Sharp says it could be worthwhile for local residents to write up a list of things that could have been impacted by dust in the air. “That also goes for general equipment around the house that’s been affected by dust,” Mr Sharp said. For instance, Dubbo Photo News has spoken to other people who have found that cleaning their car’s cabin air filter, which is normally under or behind the glove box in most vehicles, has made a remarkable improvement in generating cool air in this current heatwave.

MESSAGE

Church leader offers hope during crisis BY NATALIE LEWIS FOR many people, the Christmas season has been spent in crisis, with numerous factors affecting lives and livelihoods across the state. Anglican Church retired parish priest, Reverend Robert Bowman, has spent time praying for those impacted by drought and bushfires. “The church is aware we have people who are suffering,” he said. “As a Christian, I would say we really feel for the people suffering through drought and bushfire and the unprecedented time of hardship.”

Rev Bowman said it was nice to see people helping each other through tough times. “There are a lot of organisations wanting to help and getting community together. Often, the worst of times brings out the best in us.” He said that family also came first for a lot of residents during the Christmas season. “I think it’s fantastic that it’s still a family affair and people are giving gifts. It’s commercial but the Christmas message is still there. “I don’t blame shops for the commercialism because they need to earn a living but it does tend to crowd

Dubbo’s Anglican Church

out the real reason we have Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season.” At Christmas, there are many different forms of celebration but for the Chris-

tian community, the message is clear. “We have happy holidays and season’s greetings but for Christmas, it’s all about Jesus. I don’t like to judge

people in their faith. But for us, the motivation is different, we want to put Jesus first.” Rev Bowman focuses on spirituality before materialism. “It’s good to buy gifts but not excessively. We try to create joy in things but they don’t satisfy as much as life. Sometimes, we need a reality check. We need material objects but these things are transient and Jesus is eternal.” With the new year now underway, Rev Bowman said it was important to continue seeking spiritual guidance about facing hardship. “Let’s not focus on why it’s

happening, but on helping people,” he said. “We continue to pray and ask for rain. We are praying for people in drought and bushfire.” Rev Bowman described the situation as the “worst drought and fire season I’ve ever seen”. His advice was to support others in need as well as yourself. “Stay positive, help your neighbour. It’s important to focus on ourselves but it’s good to help somebody else. “Sometimes people only look at the negatives in disaster. “Ask for what you need, pray and help people.”

Machete, knives in DV arrest

The power of CCTV By JOHN RYAN JIM Nicholls, 72, worked hard all his life and when he retired a few years ago he bought a Land Rover Discovery, which he described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the last car heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever have to buyâ&#x20AC;?. Jim and his wife spent Christmas and New Year on a cruise and arrived back in Dubbo on January 4 to dust, heat and a sandwich dinner, far removed from the four-course meal and fine wine of the night before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just back from holidays and very tired. Normally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very security conscious but that night I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lock the laundry door,â&#x20AC;? Mr Nicholls told Dubbo Photo News. The Nicholls have an incredibly good quality CCTV system and the cameras captured the alleged theft of their car from start to finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The police were patrolling (our part of Dubbo) and our cameras showed (the alleged perpetrators) ducking for cover in our hedges every time the police drove past.â&#x20AC;? Mr Nicholls described how one person was filmed as he walked into the lounge room where Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife had gone to sleep in her chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He held a metal torch over her

and then took her purse and car keys. Luckily she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wake up and disturb him,â&#x20AC;? Mr Nicholls said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shortly after that, the security cameras show him jump because my wife had woken up and gone and locked the laundry door.â&#x20AC;? The car was allegedly seen being driven down Macquarie Street at 2am and the Nicholls received further information that it had been spotted near Dan Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but with the number plates removed. Mr Nicholls said the alleged theft will leave him at least $20,000 out of pocket if the car isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recovered intact and in the same condition as when he had last parked it at his home, and is so furious the theft heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vowed to look at civil action once the criminal court is through with the alleged perpetrators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The police have been nothing but helpful. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing to come out of this whole incident, the effort theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all put in has been first-rate.â&#x20AC;? The day after Mr Nicholls first spoke to Dubbo Photo News, he said that police had been in touch with him again to say they were expecting to be able to make an arrest.

DUBBO police have arrested a man over what they describe as â&#x20AC;&#x153;serious domestic violence offencesâ&#x20AC;? after allegedly finding him outside a Bishop Street home with a machete and knives in his vehicle. Police say a 36-year-old woman attended Dubbo Police Station late Monday afternoon to report alleged ongoing domestic violence. They were told that the woman has been continually harassed and threatened by her ex-partner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Around 9.45pm (Monday), police attended a home on Bishop Street in Dubbo and arrested a 41-year-old man sitting inside a vehicle outside the property,â&#x20AC;? police said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Officers searched the vehicle and located a machete, allegedly hidden on the seat, two knives, a tool box and written material. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 41-year-old was charged with armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, five counts of stalking/intimidation, two counts of use carriage service to menace and three counts of custody of a knife in a public place.â&#x20AC;? He was formally refused bail and will reappear at Dubbo Local Court on March 31.

Firebug mentality ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S beyond comprehension that so many people could have been lighting fires so far this summer, but the sad facts are staring us in the face. In fact, police have taken legal action against more than 180 people for bushfire-related offences since late last year. These numerous bush and grass fires have massively and negatively impacted the state, claimed the lives of 18 people, destroyed hundreds of millions of native animals, huge numbers of livestock, thousands of homes and more than 4.9 million hectares of land â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just this bushfire season so far. Police have charged 24 people over alleged deliberately-lit bushfires; 53 people have had legal action taken against them for allegedly failing to comply with a total fire ban; and 47 people have been actioned for

allegedly discarding a lighted cigarette or match. Police are appealing to the community to provide footage and/or images from phones, dashcam, or other devices, that show any of the fires in their infancy, even if only from a distance and that vision or images can be sent to local police stations or uploaded through Crime Stoppers online. Penalties relating to bushfires under the NSW Crimes Act, the Rural Fires Act, and Rural Fires Regulation include: z Damaging property with the intention of endangering life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 25 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment; z Manslaughter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 25 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment; z Starting a bushfire and being reckless as to its spread â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 21 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment; z Lighting a fire when a total fire ban is in place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 12 monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment and/or a $5500 fine; z Not putting out a fire that you have lit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 12 monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment and/or a $5500 fine; z Failing to comply with a bush fire hazard reduction notice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to 12 monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprisonment and/or a $5500 fine; z Light or use a tobacco product within 15metres of any stack of grain, hay corn, straw or any standing crop, dry grass or stubble field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to a $5500

Crazy dust THE night of December 5 saw, in many places, the most dust dumped so far. The Bureau of Meteorology reported a dust storm was affecting western parts of NSW, with dust counts at Cobar of 3000ug/m3 and at Bourke of 1000ug/m3. Dubbo residents woke to find their petsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; water dishes either mud or dust-caked, cars had a red covering like a Mars rover and the air was thick and heavy. Understanding weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only just nearing the middle of summer with little hope for significant rain anytime soon is starting to sink in during many conversations around the city.

Elong tanker rollover EMERGENCY services scrambled after reports a B-Double fuel tanker, travelling west towards Dubbo and carrying unleaded and diesel fuel, had rolled on the Golden Highway near Elong Elong just after 7am on Monday, December 6. On arrival they found the rear B-trailer had rolled onto its side and slid along the bitumen for about 100m, while the front A-trailer and prime mover had remained upright. The driver, a Newcastle man, was uninjured and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d man-

aged to get out of the truck and deploy his hazard warning signs in the interests of traffic safety. Police estimates were that at least 30,000 litres of diesel and unleaded petrol had spilled from the ruptured tanker. The highway was blocked for many hours with diversions put in place via Cobbora Road and Muronbung Road, suitable for both light and heavy vehicles. The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) was in charge of clean-up operations, looking to remediate the area where fuel had spilled and remove as much contaminated soil as possible as well as protect the integrity of the road surface. Acting superintendent Paul Stephens said none of the spilled fuel found its way into any natural watercourses.

Help wanted YOU know the state’s facing an emergency crisis when you see messages put out calling for extra people to help out within the Rural Fire Service (RFS). On January 5, RFS Orana Team called for assistance: Undoubtedly you have seen the goings on with fires across the state and further afield interstate. Although we have not been putting out pager messages every day we are still sending strike teams away for 12 hr shifts locally and personnel away with Region West

Strike teams. Whilst there are fires burning, the Orana Team will welcome any assistance you can give from radio comms operators both aviation and truck based, ABO, Firefighters, or support roles. Please contact the FCC during working hours if you are able to assist. FCC number is 6881 3900. Thank you for your support so far and thanks for your contribution into the future. In my 25 or so years of reporting and covering all sorts of disasters, I’ve never seen anything like this, and our area isn’t being hit by the fires. This call to arms really underscores the exhaustion of personnel which must be happening across the fire grounds. Huge kudos to all the locals who’ve been travelling far afield to help in this fire emergency.

volunteer fire service, although this member figure includes inactive volunteer firefighters and all support staff. Commissioner (NSWRFS) is Shane Fitzsimmons. The RFS is primarily a rural fire service while FRNSW is primarily an urban fire service with additional responsibilities in rescue and hazmat. The two services complement each other by meeting community needs. Each service has its own particular skills and each area of the state can be best served by providing the resources appropriate to the particular needs of that area.

Pilliga theft had historical significance. Jenolan Caves House and facilities were saved as well as the majority of surrounding cabins, although four structures were lost including the Jenolan RFS shed. Most importantly, however, no lives were lost to this giant fire.

Fire service differentials MANY people are unclear about the differential between the two firefighting organisations which protect lives and property across NSW, so here’s some basic information being posted to help people understand how the two services function.

Energy crews power through west’s extreme conditions

WHERE ON GOOGLE EARTH ? Where in our region is shown in this satellite image? Clue: One of Dubbo’s historic buildings; law and order.

By LYDIA PEDRANA OUR hot, harsh summer has hit with a vengeance and while many of us bunker down in air-conditioned rooms, crews from Essential Energy work through the extreme conditions to ensure the increased demand for energy during the warmer months is met. Putting the occupational health and safety of employees first, Essential Energy field workers always undertake a risk assessment prior to commencing any work on the electricity network. An Essential Energy spokesperson said a number of factors are considered before a decision is made on whether or not work should go ahead. “During summer, planned power outages are assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine if they should proceed, taking into consideration the type of work scheduled, weather forecasts and relevant health, safety and environmental procedures and policies,” the spokesperson told Dubbo Photo News. “Maintenance work on the elec-

tricity network is only postponed in exceptional circumstances as it can result in failure of minor equipment components without warning, which can cause flow on major equipment damage and lengthy unplanned power outages for customers.”

With temperatures having reached near-record levels over the Christmas period and expected to continue pushing up into the 40s well into the new year, Essential Energy reminded the community to mindful of overhead powerlines.

“While powerlines are designed for the climatic conditions, extremes weather can have an impact and the public are urged to look up and live as prolonged heat can cause powerlines to sag and reduce line clearance heights from the ground.”

Disaster coverage: How to help children process the tragedy

By LYDIA PEDRANA

AS social media feeds, television news bulletins and newspapers continue to focus on the devastating bushfire emergency engulfing our country, mental health experts are urging parents to consider the impact that constant, negative headlines can have on young people. Chief executive of National Association for Loss and Grief (NALAG) NSW, Trudy Hanson OAM, said while children are mostly resilient, they can also be vulnerable in these situations. “Children are not always able to express complex feelings in the same way as adults, and often do not show the same re-

actions to stress as adults,” the grief counsellor and educator told Dubbo Photo News. “Parents should watch for unsettled or anxious behaviour such as feelings of anxiety, fears, and worries about safety of themselves and others, trouble getting to sleep, anxiety about sleeping alone, questions about death and dying, fussy eating, withdrawing, becoming clingy and wanting to stay close to parents and caregivers, as well as angry outbursts”. Mrs Hanson also suggested parents stay on top of young people’s media intake, particularly in times of traumatic events. “These days children have access to smart

phones and tablets, TV and other media coverage and adult conversations about the fires and are watching repeated images and listening to stories,” she said. “Parents need to monitor their children’s access to viewing media coverage and stories of distressing events”. While this approach is not about shielding kids from real-world happenings, parents can gently explain what is going on without created fear. “Leave children with a feeling of security and hope that their world is a safe place and that they are loved,” Mrs Hanson said. “Parents need to listen to children and answer

their questions in an age appropriate way, reassure them that they are safe and that what they are feeling is normal.” According to resources on the NALAG website, feelings of sadness and fear are also normal for adults when a traumatic event, like bushfires occurs, whether you have been directly impacted or not. If feeling overwhelmed, Mrs Hanson also advises monitoring media intake and seeking help by talking to someone. This week, national psychology service provider APM Assure announced it is offering free mental health telephone counselling across the country in response to the bushfires.

Nevertire solar farm begins sending power THE state’s efforts to reduce energy pollution to zero had a small boost mid-last month when the Nevertire Solar Farm, located between Narromine and Nyngan, sent power to the grid for the first time. Clean energy online news platform Renew Economy, reported the Nevertire Solar Farm started sending power to the NEM (National Electricity Market) at midday on Sunday, December 15, reaching output levels of 25MW. When at full capacity, the solar farm is alleged to be able to power more than 40,000 homes. The Nevertire Solar Farm started construction in July 2018 and is being developed by the owner, UK hedge fund subsidiary Elliott Green Power.

People feeling anxious or emotionally unwell as a result of the emergency can phone a free hotline and speak to a qualified psychologist. Lifeline is also offering a range of bushfire-specific self-help tools on its website, as well as a 24-hour crisis support phone line, text service and web chat.

IN BRIEF

Central West Renewable Energy Zone seeks investors THE NSW government is asking for expressions of interest to invest in NSW Renewable Energy Zones (REZ), starting with a 3000 MW pilot zone in the Central West. The zone covers solar farms in an area including Narromine, Gilgandra, Dunedoo, Brocklehurst, Dubbo, Gulgong, Wellington, Mumbil, Burrundulla, Maryvale and Suntop 1 and 2 solar farms, plus Bodangora Wind Farm. According to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s NSW Electricity Strategy the pilot REZ would produce “enough energy to power up to 1.3 million homes each year”.

OPINION, ANALYSIS, FEATURES, DEPTH.

Local groups in water fight over pipeline project By JOHN RYAN ENVIRONMENTALISTS and fishing groups from Dubbo and across the region have raised criticisms of Orange’s $50 million pipeline which draws water from the Macquarie River, embarking on major campaigns to oppose the project. Now, in the midst of the worst inflows recorded into the Macquarie River since colonisation, Turondale native fish advocate Col Gordon has launched an attack on what he calls “a white elephant”, one he believes is creating immeasurable damage to fish habitat and breeding stocks in the upper reaches of the river. “Controversy was always on the cards with the public being only informed with limited knowledge in regard to the intentions of the grand illusion that a river that dried up could supply water to a city 50 kilometres away through rough hilly country during times of drought,” Mr Gordon said. He claimed proponents of the project were creating the illusion of a never-ending flow of water in the Macquarie River, “telling one and all a 34ML/day flow in the river was a high flow and they would only remove just over 33 per cent of the flow per day”. Mr Gordon believes a far better, albeit more costly, option would have been to route the pipeline to Burrendong Dam itself. The state government has been widely criticised for not mandating that a much larger reserve of water to be kept in the dam rather than sold off as quickly as possible, a move that saw dam levels drop from near capacity in 2016 to almost empty by the end of 2019. “The pipeline to the dam was longer and would cost another $16-17 million but would supply water every day of every week when required and have no impact on the high value aquatic environment in the Macquarie River,” Mr Gordon said. “This option would have also had the added value to supply pipelines to Molong, Cudal, Yeoval, Cumnock, Blayney and Carcoar as well as Orange and deliver water security to the region.” Orange City Council (OCC) mayor Reg Kidd said if it’s possible to imagine an upside from this drought, it’s that it’s brought into sharp focus the need for every country community to look again at how it manages its water. “Like all water sources, the pipeline hasn’t delivered as much water as we would have liked and we’re working on ways to make it

perform better – because of the focus of this drought, proposed changes are about to happen to turn that around,” Cr Kidd said. “Like all tools to access water sources, we’re working on ways to make it perform better. The key issue is the trigger point, the amount of flow that must be happening in the river before pumping can begin,” he said. Mr Gordon is furious OCC has asked for a dropping of the trigger level to enable pumping when the river reaches 38 ML/day. “Conditions of approval were that the low flows in the river would be protected and OCC said the pipeline would not operate during low flows,” Mr Gordon said. “The low flow level was determined by an independent review commissioned by the Planning Department as a ` 92ML/day flow and a moderate Conditions of approval were flow up to 349ML/day.” that the low flows in the river But Cr Kidd said the prelimwould be protected and OCC inary trigger point was set at 108 megs per day, with a 10 per said the pipeline would not operate during low flows... a cent safety margin boosting the to 118, and that since – native fish advocate Col Gordon number the pipeline began operating

in 2017, accurate daily river flowrates at the pipeline off-take point have been able to be collected. “This more accurate data is behind the recent request by council to change the trigger point to 38 megalitres per day,” Cr Kidd said. “Independent consultants have looked closely at the flows in the river, finding flows over the past twelve months were at their lowest level since the millennium drought – to produce modelling for the future. They then produced projections based on the assumption that those low flow rates would continue for the next two

years. “The finding: If the drought continues, flows in the Macquarie would be above 38 mega litres a day often enough to prevent Orange going into Level 6 water restrictions,” he said. One example quoted by Cr Kidd was in July last year, where he said flow rates in the Macquarie didn’t get above the 119 meg mark, so there was no pumping. “But on 30 of those 31 days, the flow was above 38 meg,” Cr Kidd said. “Everyone is still waiting for rain, but there’s room for confi-

dence, based on good modelling that the Macquarie pipeline will be making a contribution, along with stormwater harvesting and other sources, to meet Orange’s water needs. “Among the new projects being closely analysed is a new pipeline connecting Orange with Cowra, downstream of Wyangala dam,” he said. He points to the city’s stormwater harvesting project as a major success story, along with the buyin from the city’s residents to embrace water restrictions. “In the midst of a drought, any rain that happens soaks into parched paddocks and there’s no run-off,” Cr Kidd said. “When it rains on Orange’s roads and car parks, our stormwater system collects run-off, purifies the water in constructed wetlands and adds it to our storage dams. “The water use of our residents continues to be below the Level 5 target,” he said. Mr Gordon is unconvinced and sent Dubbo Photo News a series of pictures of what he says is a 46ML/day flow in the Macquarie River. He says if approval is given, at a 38ML/day flow and a 12ML/day extraction the flow in the picture will be reduced by half of what is shown here. * Disclosure: John Ryan is an elected councillor on Dubbo Regional Council.

Faith: Community unites to pray for rain By NATALIE LEWIS CAROLYN BROWN has a dream for everyone to pray for rain. As the local coordinator of a series of events dedicated to seeking salvation for the region, Mrs Brown said that finding hope during the devastation of drought is the key priority. “Pray for Rain has been going since September,” she explained. “It started with eight churches on board. Each church has delegates.” In October, the Canberra Declaration Prayer for Rain was held, partnering with Western Air Care ministries to bless the bush. Mrs Brown said that a Christian colleague who visited the parched western region started the movement last year. “A gentleman from Canberra went to Nyngan and donated to drought relief and started Pray for Dubbo,” she explained. “I had it in my mind before he came,” Mrs Brown said. “Since then, we have been meeting at Bourke Hill and Victoria Park. Each time a different church runs it.” Mrs Brown is very pleased with how well Pray for Rain has been received and the level of attend-

ance at each event. “It’s something that people have longed to do, to join other people once a month,” she said. “We have been getting 70 to 80 people each time, there were 50 in December.” Mrs Brown explained that the group has been praying for drought, the community, farmers

Happy fish, healthy river SCREENS to prevent juvenile native fish being sucked by their millions into irrigation pumps has been a concern for the NSW government since October 2015, when Dubbo Photo News posed questions and presented some research to then state agriculture minister Niall Blair during a Pollies in the Pub visit to Trangie. At the time, Mr Blair said the commonwealth, and the Murray Darling Basin Plan, had to look at funding holistic projects which provide multiple benefits instead of just ticking boxes. “My message to Canberra and to all our communities is that we need to look at the triple bottom line and we need to utilise the assets and the people within our systems to achieve that. There’s not just one way to do something; we need to be flexible,” Mr Blair told the crowd at Trangie. After a series of fisheries workshops in the valley, Blair – who was also fisheries minister at the time – said commonwealth funding also had to look at projects such as fish screens for irrigation pumps instead of just focussing on river flows. “I think that when we look at environmental outcomes we need to look at all the outcomes not just at the amount of water that’s flowing down our rivers,” Mr Blair said. “We need to look at things like

terways president Matt Hansen wholeheartedly agrees. Mr Hansen said in NSW there are between two and three million fish put into the system via re-stocking projects, yet we lose almost 100 million fish through being sucked out and extracted from our rivers. “Fish sucking research on the Namoi River uncovered that one irrigation pump pulled hundreds of fish from the river in a single hour,” Mr Hansen said. “There are thousands of large, unscreened pumps across the Murray Daring basin, as well as diversion channels, that remove everything from fish, eggs, larvae, shrimp, and all manner of aquatic life every minute that they are switched on.” He said Australia is 100 years behind the USA in protecting fish from being lost “up the pipes”. “A recent ground swell of support from pro-active Aussie irrigators, recreational fishers and government bodies has seen fish screen trials get under way, with everyone keen to recover the millions of native fish lost through grossly out-dated and extremely unhealthy water extraction techniques,” Mr Hansen said.

“The McCutcheon family is progressive. They are open-minded industry leaders when to comes to river health and at the end of the day we want the same thing – healthy rivers and healthy, thriving regional economies.” Rob McCutcheon said it’s important for irrigators to work with all stakeholders to create the best possible river environments, while at the same time assisting rural communities to thrive. “The current health of the Macquarie River upstream of Warren compared with downstream, provides strong evidence that a review of government water use to include small flows in drought times will be beneficial for people and the river,” he said. “The worst drought in recorded history will provide a chance for the whole community to have a unified approach to sourcing state and federal funds that will make a difference without negatively impacting local economies. “If there can be a united voice and strength of conviction to improve our river, then governments must address the need for rapid introduction of the complementary measures identified by DPI Fisheries research.”

FISHERIES RESEARCH

The first time we met, facing over the township, seeing the clouds rolling in and it did rain.” While that day did not break the drought, it did give everyone involved hope and the sense of unity. “I believe there is power in prayer and I believe there’s hope. It might not rain but we are praying for those suffering and for it

to be a pick-me-up. For people who are desperate and broken this might be able to give them something. Prayer and wisdom and unity amongst our leaders. “We may never see the impact but I do believe it’s doing something.” Mrs Brown wants to see as many people involved in Pray for Rain as possible. “We want as many churches and their congregations to be part of it as they can. I hope that other towns can get involved,” she said. “I would love it if this grew much bigger and people can come, that’s what’s in my heart. I just have a deep desire. It’s very much something that can develop, that the community works together. “If you have a faith and if you believe in prayer, feel free to come along.” From now on, Pray for Rain will be held monthly for two hours on the first Saturday of each month. The next event will be held at Ollie Robins Oval from 4-6pm on February 1. “If people want to be involved, they can email dubbobap@bigpond.net.au “Most churches also have a Facebook page.”

fish habitat and that includes screens on pumps so our irrigators can continue to be productive and also not have a detrimental impact on our native fish stocks.” Rob McCutcheon’s family has spent generations farming in the Narromine/Trangie area and says he welcomes data collated from research by Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Fisheries demonstrating the importance of complementary environmental measures to rehabilitate our inland rivers as an alternative way of restoring native fish numbers to acceptable levels. “Fish numbers and habitat are important environmental indicators in any river system and these trials have shown that there is more to it than just adding water to achieve good environmental outcomes – this approach on its own will only achieve a 25 per cent restoration of the intended aim,” Mr McCutcheon said. “The simplicity for both sides of government to just add water to get the green cred over the past

Mr McCutcheon believes the recent push for re-snagging, re-stocking and building fish ladders to allow fish passage, added to the new push for pump screens to protect juvenile fish, all highlighted in the research, should receive support from all players in the water debate. “Lifting native fish numbers to 60 per cent of early settlement days is achievable with the uptake of this research,” Mr McCutcheon said. “While they may be costly initially, the long-term benefit and focus on a whole-of-river approach will achieve higher level environmental rehabilitation with far less community collateral damage compared with just removing water from productive use. “Support at government and on-ground level should be a no brainer.” Mr McCutcheon said the research trials conclusively recognised that restoring fish numbers to earlier levels is not possible without the adoption of these complementary initiatives, a sentiment with which Inland Wa-

THE TOONS’ VIEWS

Disagree on support for River Street Bridge

The Editor, Re: “Airport decision a standout for councillor” (Dubbo Photo News, December 19-25) We were disappointed to read the article about Councillor Kevin Parker (in which he) stated that he is prepared to support decisions that go against the majority of local opinion if he believes that it is in the best interests of Dubbo. However, apart from expressing his support for the River Street Bridge (RSB), Cr Parker failed to make a case for how it would benefit the Dubbo region. During council’s extraordinary meeting on September 9, 2019, many residents sitting in the council chambers were shocked at the ignorance displayed by Cr Parker on the issue of the RSB during debate. Cr Parker seemed to have been briefed solely from the RMS’ “fantasy” videos during their marketing campaign masquerading as a “public consultation”. He seemed to pay no attention to the community members imparting their own local knowledge of the issues

when speaking to the motion. Vicki Etheridge is the councillor who has taken the lead in the issue of the RSB, attending Newell Highway taskforce meetings and the like for over three years and we were advised that before the extraordinary meeting, Cr Parker never once consulted her on the issue. These residents spoke to him outside chambers after the meeting and explained their concerns with the RSB proposal. Cr Parker was quite surprised to learn for the first time that there are very serious problems with a bridge proposed for that location. To his credit, Cr Parker did spend some time listening when residents told him its many problems and how it would be a detriment to Dubbo. For instance, residents north of Purvis Lane and outlying towns, for example Brocklehurst and Mendooran, told him that they cannot get into Dubbo when there is a flood and the RSB would do nothing to change that.

John Ryan ❚ OPINION THE blame game is well and truly on, even though Australia’s eastern states aren’t quite halfway through summer. The Greens and environmentalists have been blamed for preventing the clearing of vegetation around houses; people who built houses in dense bushland have been blamed for building in fire prone locations; various governments have been blamed for not taking action to prevent climate change; coal fired power stations have copped a hammering and prime minister Scott Morrison has been abused for taking off to the beaches of Hawaii for some R’n’R during a national emergency. I’ve been concerned for decades about fire management in NSW, where there seems to be a policy of containment rather than in the good old days of the Bushfire Brigade where a heap of cockies dropped everything to get to the seat of the fire and just put the bloody thing out as quickly as they could, so they could go back to work or Christmas dinner. Things have changed. There are more people, more fuel loads in our bush and fewer active volunteer fire-fighters in many areas. With this in mind, I was a supporter of former opposition leader Bill Shorten’s campaign pledge prior to the last federal election to “boost Australia’s firefighting capabilities with a national fleet of aircraft and dedicated smokejumper

efficient freight movements in Dubbo told him how the RSB would not flood-proof the Newell Highway due to its flooded approach roads and flood prone “detours”. Freight movement is key to the Dubbo economy and the Narromine route is not an option, as it goes under in multiple locations before Dubbo does. These business people also advised Cr Parker that sending trucks through the centre of town when both the freight task on the Newell and local traffic was increasing is ridiculous and out of step with modern traffic planning in all other NSW

cities. They advised him that the RMS’ “fantasy” video of the intersection of Thompson and Whylandra Streets looked good only because the vehicle numbers shown were equivalent to 3.30am. In reality, six to eight new lanes/ slip lanes constructed to cross in front of each other from all directions would make for a dangerous bottle-neck, resulting in even more tailbacks. Cr Parker was surprised to learn that the RMS was underestimating the total number of sacred sites that would be destroyed because the traditional owners were never consulted.

After his discussion with the locals, Cr Parker said he could see that a bypass beginning at Troy Bridge Road would be a far better option for Dubbo. He assured us that he would support the concept and look into the issues that he previously not paid enough attention to. We are disappointed that he has not kept his word and reverted to toeing the National Party line.

Fire fight: Shorten’s good ideas the loser in high stakes blame game units to keep Australians safe from bushfires”. Shorten promised $80 million to establish the National Aerial Bushfire Fighting Fleet of aircraft. “This fleet will provide standing aerial firefighting capacity that can be used on demand in emergencies,” Mr Shorten said. “It will include retro-fitted Black Hawk helicopters as they are phased out from active use by the Australian Army, and Erickson S-64 Air-crane helicopters (or Elvis, as they are commonly known) which have a 2,650 gallon tank capable of snorkelling or scooping fresh or salt water. “It’s expected that the national fleet will include a standing capability of up to six large or very large air tankers, and up to 12 heavy rotary wing helicopters,” he said. Mr Shorten explained the clear benefits of fighting fires from the air, saying aircraft offer speed, access and observation advantages over ground crews thus containment is more effective and the final fire burned area minimised using aerial capability, thereby reducing demand on ground crews. That all makes sense to me – too much sense, in fact, that the coalition didn’t grab this policy for its own platform. It would be very popular. Shorten also promised to have a dedicated “smokejumper” unit. “Smokejumpers are firefighters

what seems like half the east coast has been incinerated. Shorten was writing with foresight – this policy pledge was released to the media on March 17, 2019. He pointed out that Australia doesn’t have a government-owned fleet of water bombing aircraft. This makes us reliant on borrowing from private companies domestically as well as from overseas. He also pointed out the dangers of relying on aircraft that may be committed in the northern hemisphere when wildfires are raging in the southern part of the world. “The bushfire season in Australia is lengthening and already overlapping with the northern hemisphere, increasing the risk that we won’t be able to access the aircraft we need at times of peril,” Mr Shorten said. He also criticised the Coalition, claiming the Commonwealth’s contribution to the National Aerial ` “There seems to be a Firefighting Centre had plummetpolicy of containment ed from 50 per cent of funding to rather than in the good just 23 per cent, reducing our overall firefighting capability. old days of the Bushfire “A Shorten Labor government Brigade where a heap will stop the federal government’s of cockies dropped reduction in funding for our fireeverything to get to the capabilities by returning seat of the fire and just put fighting to a 50-50 funding split between the bloody thing out as the states and territories and the quickly as they could, so Commonwealth,” Mr Shorten said. they could go back to work “Labor’s investment will ease or Christmas dinner... a the burden on state and territory governments, develop new nation-

trained to be rapidly deployed by helicopters at remote fires during the short window during which those fires can be contained,” Mr Shorten said. “Smokejumpers usually rappel from helicopters and use chainsaws, hoes and other dry fire-fighting tools to establish a containment perimeter around the fire. “They then patrol the perimeter to ensure the fire does not jump containment lines, while (at the same time) working with water-bombing aircraft to ensure the contained fire is fully extinguished,” he said. California and other US states currently have a number of smokejumper units which have proven successful. This hasn’t been written with the benefit of hindsight now that

al programs including a national risk management model, and national research and development programs including trials of new aircraft and night fire-fighting activities. “Labor can pay for new fire-fighting aircraft and the smokejumper units because we are making multinationals pay their fair share and closing tax loopholes for the top end of town,” he said. One of the major problems with the current debate is that most people seem to be taking positions based on their political ideology – people who hate Morrison will hate those people who abused him, and say the office of prime minister should be treated with respect, which it should. I’m sure these same people would have been over the moon to see a Labour PM such as Rudd or Gillard hammered in that same way, and that would also have been wrong. That March press statement from Bill Shorten makes it as plain as day: when it comes to having an overwhelming aerial strike capacity to swarm these fires and just put the bloody things out, federal Labor was well ahead of the game when it comes to the fire-fighting issue. z Note: John Ryan is also a councillor on Dubbo Regional Council, and is also employed part-time by Landcare.

Thumbs Up to the people, businesses and community organisations around the region who are helping organise donations for bushfire victims. It seems ironic that many of the people living in coastal areas who have been supporting us during a tough drought, now need our support.

& & Thumbs Up to Judy and Terry Gelan and the Seventh Day Thumbs Up to Poolwerx Dubbo for their great service.

Adventist Church at Galston Sydney for their thoughts and generosity in sending a donation of $1700 to the Dubbo Seventh Day Adventist Church. Their donation is to help families affected by the fires and drought to be able to purchase school uniforms for their children starting school in the New Year.

Thumbs Up to Indianna Asimus and your sport story in Dubbo Photo News last week. She’s a great inspiration for younger soccer players. My 12-year-old enjoyed reading her story about playing in America. As someone who has lived in Dubbo for more than 25 years and played in many different sports, I can tell you we are blessed to have many youngsters go on to achieve greater things in their chosen sport.

BUSHFIRE DONATION

Children’s sweet gesture for Salvos fire appeal LEADING up to graduation celebrations, the “Kookaburra” children of Stepping Stones Early Learning Centre in north Dubbo were busy baking, decorating and selling goodies in an effort to raise funds for the Salvation Army’s Bushfire Disaster Appeal. “The children had been discussing the devastating fires, and how we could help,” according to Stepping Stones ed-

ucator Naomi Peters. “They came up with the idea of running their own stall at the centre, and we wholeheartedly supported the initiative.” The children made and signed their very own presentation cheque totalling $600 and presented it to Captain David Sutcliffe of The Salvation Army Orana who made a special guest appearance to attend their recent graduation celebrations.

Thumbs Down to the suggestion that there’s only two per cent unemployment in Dubbo. Whoever said that obviously doesn’t spend any time down Macquarie Street – what a joke. Thumbs Up to the holiday-time activities at the library. We loved being able to take the kids somewhere a bit cooler!

EVERY year, a group of old school mates from De La Salle College’s 1966 4th Year Class (or Year 10 as it’s now called) gets together for a catch up to reflect on old times and tell a few yarns. Held each year on the last Saturday in November at Dubbo’s Railway Hotel (affectionately known as “The Buncha”), the 2019 reunion group included some friends from other years.

Thumbs Up to your story about the Newtons. A farming husband giving his wife a tractor for Christmas – you can’t get much more rural than that! Made us laugh out loud!

PETS on PARADE

Richie Richie Tell us a bit about yourself…. I am told I am a sheep however I have been bought up with dogs and my best friend is a horse, Max, so I am quite confused as to what I am. Max and I live together in a lovely big paddock unfortunately not a very green one. I have told the family about the lack of greenery but they informed me they can’t do anything. Useless, they are. Richie how old are you? I’m getting into my later years. I’m 8 years old and I am named after the wonderful Richie McCaw. What is your daily routine? Well Max and I like our morning walks. We tend to head down to the creek where it’s a bit more

protected and cooler. By the afternoon we wander back up for dinner. We are sometimes very spoilt and we get dog biscuits, our absolute favourite treat. Max and I once broke into the backyard and ripped open two bags of dog nuts and ate the lot! We weren’t loved that day. What is your favourite thing to do? Well, I love running. Sophie, my owner, likes to go running and I love it. I follow on behind… sometimes far behind. Such a fun activity. Richie, would you like to explain these pictures of you? Of course! Well, we had some important guests visiting the farm and learning about wool.

Fiona (Sophie’s mum) put on this fabulous lunch for them. I noticed this from the neighbouring yard and so I wandered over to join the party. Once I got the gate open, I went and had a chat to everyone (they loved me) then I then snuck over to the lunch for some food. I had a bun and tried the tomato chutney which was delightful! I just couldn’t resist, I had to lick the spoon! PHOTOS: SOPHIE UREN

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

SUDOKU EXTRA

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

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

SWIMMING

Ducks slow off the blocks after Christmas hams By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL ONLY 19 of the Dubbo Veterans Swimming Club fronted the starter for the last swim for 2019. It was expected there would be a lower turnout given the feverish feasting season. TurDUCKen was the theme, with plenty of members pumped up by an overindulgence of the three meats, washed down with ample quantities of rehydrating beer and wine. There were a few more last Sunday to kick-start the 60th anniversary of the Dubbo Veterans Swimming Club, aka The Ducks. Secretary Linda Walsh says the New Year saw the reintroduction touch pads in the pond. “There were 23 ducks at the pond last Sunday, one dry...at least on the outside! “We had four events for the morning, at least two of which didn’t meet the approval of a few swimmers as they ducked away for early shower,” Dave Sparkes wrote. Linda Walsh agreed with the

Lilah Naden wasn’t fazed by the elder Ducks taking the blue-ribbon 100m

captain’s sentiments. “We threw in a test of the fitness – and recuperative capacities after the overindulgence of some of our members – with a 50m and 100m freestyle race,” she smiled wickedly. Duckling Lilah Naden took the 100m freestyle in sensational fashion. “Lilah swam the four laps with grace and ease and proceeded to

exit the pool with a huge smile on her face. Sadly, this was not the case for a number of our other swimmers. There was plenty of whinging prior to jumping in and many were left catching their breath afterwards. In fact, a few were unable to exit the water immediately. They said it was the hot weather,” Linda said. “Our monthly trophy winner, sponsored by Henderson Mens-

wear, was none other than Rod Archer, swimming within 0.02 of his time. Rod came to our last presentation day expressing his disappointment at only achieving a hand towel as a concocted award. This year he will receive his coveted Ducks towel. “It may have been a long time coming but there’s no doubt the popular secretary manager of “the golfie” will let everyone know that he’s earned it,” Linda laughed. Results Sunday, December 22:  25m freestyle: Billy Greenwood (.43); Tony Wall (2); Greg Salmon (3); Lilah Naden (4); Andy Schloeffel (5)  2 x 25m breaststroke relay: Greg Salmon/Robert Rich (1.09); Tom Gray/Louise Taylor (2); Roger Mackay/Gary Giddings (3); Mark Scullard/Tony Wall (4); Henry Willcockson/John Wherritt (5)  100m freestyle: Andrew Schloeffel (.94); Tom Gray (2); Mark Scullard (3); John Wherritt (4); Brian Schloeffel (5)  50m freestyle: Marl Scullard (.13); Greg Jankowski (2); Brian Schloeffel (3); Lilah Naden (4);

Roger Mackay (5)  Lucky numbers: Brian Scloeffel and Henry Willcockson Results Sunday, January 5:  100m freestyle: Lilah Naden; Greg Jankowski (2); Brian Schloeffel (3); Tom Gray (4); Nicole Johnstone (5)  50m freestyle: Roger Mackay, the Silver Fox; Brian Schloeffel (2); Tony Wall (3); Tom Gray (4); Greg Salmon (5)  25m freestyle: Robert Rich, “the other fox”; Greg Salmon (2); Rod Archer (3)  2x25m breaststroke: Tom Gray/ Nicole Johnstone declared winners after every other pair broke. Last couple standing!  Henderson’s Menswear Monthly Medal: Rod Archer ((.02); Mike Twhohill (2); Lilah Naden and Greg Jankowski (equal third)  Lucky numbers: Matt Dover and Tony Wall. This Sunday the Ducks move to the 50m pool at the Dubbo Aquatic Leisure Centre and the following week will be on the Narromine pond. This is in preparation for the Western Districts AIF in Cobar next month.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

Onwards and upwards for mountain bikers despite big dry By GEOFF MANN AFTER the longest drought on record, Dubbo’s “mountain goats on wheels” are ready to pedal back into action on Dubbo’s hills. The dry conditions have had one silver lining – they’ve allowed Dubbo Mountain Bike (DMTB) club president Jason Billsborough and his energetic team to upgrade and develop more variations to their track at Geurie. “It’s been hot and dusty for sure but we don’t really care what conditions are, our riders love the challenge the course presents. It will actually be nice to pedal around in a bit of mud after the welcome rain this week,” Jason said. Dubbo boasts two tracks – one on Mugga Hill at the start of the Golden Highway to Newcastle and the other at Geurie. “Our membership is up

by 30 from this time last year. We now have 83 members, including new riders, some come-and-tryers and plenty of the dyed-in-thewools,” Jason smiled. DMTB is constantly looking for ways to improveme, and regularly seeks input from local and visiting riders as to how the existing tracks are laid out. “We are constantly changing the nature of our tracks to encourage new members and to create new and exciting challenges for all our riders. Over the past 12 months, we’ve taken our main course from one loop to include cross-links. This allows us to isolate halftrack events or run smaller loops, to avoid boredom and complacency as much as anything.” Jason said those who have been involved from the beginning have commented on how the new layouts have reignited their

enthusiasm for the sport that is open to all ages – 0 to 90. “We run Dirt Masters for under-12s as well as Juniors (13-17 years). Both groups run at around 12 or 13 riders, although sometimes we’ve had up to 20 in the Dirt Mates,” he smiled. The increase in membership has been well planned. “We flagged it many years ago that our future was with riders being introduced at an early age. Some of us have kids who have followed us into mountain biking (MTB); others have gravitated from the track and “the constant left turns”, towards the hilly course and constantly changing terrain. “There is certainly no thought of pinching cyclists. It’s more of us offering different opportunities for young people who seem to love the excitement of

jumping their bikes and the adrenaline pumping action,” Jason added. The Geurie courses are run at The Oaks and The Homestead on Arthursville Road. “Our new season commences at 9.00 on Sunday 19 with the Super Series and our regular Wednesday races start the following week (January 23) on Mugga Hill. “Wednesdays are always a lot of fun with plenty of junior riders and their families gathering to test their skills. No doubt there will be a few sporting new wheels and equipment after Christmas surprises,” Jason laughed. If you are new to Dubbo and the region or are just keen to try a different sport, check out the DMTBC on Facebook or turn up at Geurie (Sundays at 9am) or Mugga Hill one Wednesday evening to give it a go.

TOUCH FOOTBALL

Aussie legends touch base at Christmas By GEOFF MANN GREG and Kerry Norman are icons of Australian Touch, while son Peter and his partner Danni Davis are part of the current national team, the Emus. The star quartet spent Christmas with Greg’s parents, Joan and Wal, in Dubbo. Kerry was inaugurated into the Hall of Fame in 1991; Greg has coached and managed elite level teams; Peter has captained Australia and Danni is part of an exciting new brigade, teaming up with Dubbo CYMS playmaker Maddi Crowe during last year’s World Cup. Kerry tallied 104 caps for the Australian team, now known as the Emus, representing 76 times in World Cups, 19 tests and nine all-nations fixtures. Peter has developed his enviable genes into a huge career in touch, after spending a season with the Gold Coast Titans Toyota Cup Under 20s team. He was selected in QLD age teams eight years in a row, from 12-18s, won the QLD Men’s Open n title at 2012 State of Origin, n, co-captained Australia to win the Trans-Tasman U18s 18s and 20s and has won countuntless senior men’s mixed TTs

and World Cups. Danni is a relative newcomer to the Emus, competing in last year’s World Cup. She was also honoured with the captaincy of the Parramatta Eels NRL Touch team. Peter and Danni were special guests at the Jack Newton Celebrity Golf Classic in the Hunter Valley, before travelling to Sydney and on to Dubbo. “As golfers, they make excellent touch players,” Greg laughed. While in town staying with Pete’s sister Jenny and husband Max Astri, the Emus spent some time chatting with Jeremy and Amber Tooth. The recently-wed couple are touch mad and were rapt in the insights and tips offered by two of Australia’s best. Jeremy’s parents are Max and Jenny’s neighbours, Jackie and John Tooth. Following their hit out at the Jack Newton and while “living adjacent to the local course”, Peter and Danni expressed an interest in playing nine holes so Justin

Astri and Jeremy Tooth accompanied them. “Danni was absolutely thrilled when she snared a birdie on one of the par-3 holes,” Greg proclaimed. On their way back to the Gold Coast, Danni took Pete through Dunedoo where she and her sister Shellie had spent a day running coaching clinics two years ago. The talented athletes had responded to an “out of the blue” request from Lauren Sullivan at Dunedoo High School. The couple has been invited by Touch France to coach the French mixed team and run a variety of clinics during July/August before accompanying them to England for the European World Cup, and are both “stoked” at the prospect. Greg sends his best wishes to old schoolmates from South Dubbo Public. He is an avid follower of Dubbo Touch and may even return with Kerry and the two Emus during the Association’s 45-year anniversary season this year.

Ducks and ducklings

DUBBO Veterans swimmers, known as the Ducks since the early days, dived in for their 60th year on Sunday. The smiles on Lilah Naden and her Pop, Tom Gray (pictured above) epitomise the spirit of this iconic Dubbo sporting group. Lilah had the â&#x20AC;&#x153;elderâ&#x20AC;? Ducks cheering in awe as she touched first in the blue ribbon 100 metres event - leaving her grandfather in her wake! The club that was formed to ensure servicemen had a chance to socialise and support each other now welcomes women and children. Lilah and Lucas Salmon, the grandson of Duck Greg Salmon, OAM and other new generation swimmers will keep the tradition strong.
