STAYING STRONG Support continues as drought still front of mind Story ❱ Page3

POPULAR local muso Jason Hill says he’s incredibly lucky to be alive. In a tale of survival more reminiscent of a Netflix suspense drama, Jason was driving back home to Dubbo from Newcastle at about 9 o’clock last Sunday night when he hit a wall of water about 30 kilometres east of Dunedoo that he described as being ‘as wide as the Murray River’. “When the car hit the water I realised what

had happened, but it was completely too late, the water came up over the bonnet and the car just floated away, the headlights were still on and the motor was still running and it just carried me off,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “A tree caught hold of my bumper bar and it started the car spinning round,” he said. Mr Hill said the car was floating and spinning freely while trees Jason Hill, and his car pictured after the ordeal.

Dam wall closed for emergency work PUBLIC access to the Burrendong dam wall will be closed until the end of April as Water NSW commences emergency drought works. Deep water pumps are set to be installed and begin drawing remnant storage from the dam by the end of this month. The extreme measures will extend water supply to meet critical human needs in the region. Despite recent rainfall, Burrendong’s level sat at 1.5 per cent at the time of writing. In the middle of January this year, the dam was at 1.6 per cent.

ISSUE

MP apologises for ‘unclear language’ used spruiking Seniors Card eligibility By JOHN RYAN DUBBO resident Bill Sims and his wife have a self-managed super fund – he’s a self-funded retiree – and he believes people in his situation are being short-changed when it comes to the Seniors’ Card. “During the 2019 election campaign period, the National Party mailed a one page advertisement to aged people, including me, apparently using the electoral roll and people’s ages, and this document implies unrestricted eligibility for an aged pensioner or a superannuation and income annuity earner who lives in regional NSW,” Mr Sims told Dubbo Photo News, adding that he believes that criteria was never accurate. “The latest document which has come out says that it’s only aged pensioners and commonwealth health card holders, and the commonwealth health card holders weren’t mentioned previously. “Superannuation receivers have not been treated fairly in this and I’m just concerned about the lack of morals (in this situation),” he said. Dubbo Photo News contacted Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders and he said it was a communications hiccup. “We understand slightly different language went out on some letters sent out by the National Party

around 12 months ago, noting cards would be available to superannuation and annuity income earners,” Mr Saunders said. “We accept the Party could have used clearer language and we apologise for any miscommunication. “Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders are seniors who have reached pension age but aren’t eligible for pension – it is subject to an income test,” he said. Mr Sims said that isn’t good enough. “This change disadvantages me and many other aged people, many of whom will have voted Nationals to gain this benefit,” he said. He believes the Nationals should have checked the government’s official departmental website before it designed what he says was misleading electoral material. “I visited the www.service.nsw. gov.au website to find that, despite the pre-election advertising, the card is only available for: 1. Age pensioners with a valid Pensioner Concession Card. 2. Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders. “I’m concerned... we have a situation where the first document, put out before the election, was an inducement for people to vote for the National Party saying that superannuants and aged pensioners would get a $250 travel card,” Mr Sims said.

Dubbo Photo News February 13-19, 2020

Support remains strong with drought still front of mind By LYDIA PEDRANA “WE have not forgotten you.” That’s the message to drought-affected families from various local government and non-government agencies. Despite national attention being diverted to the country’s bushfire crisis, and to flooding in some parts of the state over the past week, organisations understand that the drought is ongoing and encourage those struggling to seek support. Member for Parkes Mark Coulton acknowledged that many in his electorate were still doing it tough, promising to continue to work with state and territory governments and charity organisations to provide a coordinated response to drought. g “The Coalition on Government is acting quickly and meaningfully to o support those who have ave been impacted by the he terrible bushfires in n parts of Australia. However, ever, the impact of the drought which prevails across the Parkes electorate te should equally be at thee forefront of our minds,” nds,” he told Dubbo Pho-

to News. “We also need to keep the conversation going to promote regional Australia, encourage visitation and reassure our city counterparts that we are still strong and viable, and we are still resilient.” According to the NSW Department of Primary Industries drought indication, the whole of the state falls into one of three drought categories and more than 56 per cent of the state is currently in the “intense drought” category. So far, the NSW government has committed $3.9 billion in drought assistance measures and water security. Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders sought to reassure the region that just because bushfires have dominated media headlines for the past few months, drought support will not be jeopardised. “Thankfully, as a state, financial we are in a strong str position and I know the Government has enNSW Govern there are two sured that th separate pots that are being used to ffund bushfire and drought recovery a response,” Mr Saunrespons ders said. ““That means

we are in a position to help those people and communities who have suffered during the bushfires without sacrificing the continued support we are giving to people and communities that are battling through the drought.” But funding aside, the reality is, these conditions can have both severe emotional impacts on farmers and regional communities. The Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) is continuing to provide mental health training to workplaces and communities to educate people on the signs of mental ill-health and how to broach the conversation with someone. RAMHP coordinator Camilla Herbig said: “While there has recently been a shift in the focus of the media and social media towards bushfire response and recovery, RAMHP is still very much uch focused on supporting porting drought affected d individuals, businesses ses and communities.” For those who o know w someone struggling, ggling, Ms Herbig said social connection can go a long way in times mes like this.

“A simple phone call or kind message to someone who may be doing it tough can mean the world. Listening can be one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone having a tough time. With ongoing patchy rainfall and persistent dust storms, social connection and support is key in keeping our communities mentally healthy.” The National Association for Loss and Grief (NALAG) is also working to arrange attractive community activities that incidentally promote social connectedness during this tough period. Drought support coordinator Brenda Baker said NALAG is determined to curate events that are worthwhile for drought-affected communities. “We have six events coming up in the next few weeks and we try things that people t look at thin to find practical and useful,” Ms Baker said. difficult to connect “It’s diffi people and say, “come with peopl along to a barbeque and hear about drought” beh ear abou people just go “yeah, cause peop There has to be a renah”.

succession planning workshops, for instance, have meant they’ve been incredibly popular.” This month, NALAG is holding succession planning workshops in Condobolin, Bourke, Coonamble and farm first aid courses Tambar Springs, Leadville and Mudgee. On the financial front, the Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS), which has offices across the region, is encouraging those experiencing financial hardship from the drought to reach out for support. “The RFCS has basically been set up to support farmers who are in financial difficulty, however the government has provided funding for small business financial counsellors who can work with small businesses who are suffering the drought,” said CEO Jeff Caldbeck. “I always say don’t self-assess, make a phone call.” If you need drought-related support, contact: z Rural Adversity Mental Health Program: Camilla Herbig 0419 266 493 z National Association for Grief and Loss – Drought Support Program: 02 6882 9222 z Rural Financial Counselling Service: 1800 940 404 z Lifeline: 13 11 14

Ant armies on the march into homes By JOHN RYAN

ARMIES of ants crawling through homes is a common gripe in and around Dubbo at the moment but recent rains could alleviate much of that problem, according to Greens Pest Services boss Peter Green. He says the search for moisture has been the driving force behind the ant swarms. “The problem with ants at the moment is we have had months of extremely dry weather and most recently some rain,” Mr Green told Dubbo Photo News. “While it’s dry the ants are like all of us and are in search of water and therefore enter the home and become a pest. “They also have the uncanny ability to detect when rain is coming which can also send them into a bit of a frenzy,” he said. Pharmaceutical giant Bayer produces many of the products which rid homes and workplaces of pest invasions. The company says that of all insects that infest buildings, ants are the most common. There are many different species of ant. Each is unique in terms of nesting sites, habits, characteristics and feeding preferences. All ants live in colonies, consisting of an egg-laying female (Queen), short-lived males and workers (sterile female) and foragers in gardens or kitchens (Workers) Workers are a nuisance. They

forage widely in search of food and can damage food used for human consumption. Materials can be damaged by ants chewing, and some bite. Bayer says successful, longterm ant control requires the destruction of the nest, a feat which is often difficult to achieve as nests are typically located in inaccessible places. Baiting will achieve the most effective control.

Foraging ants feed on the bait and transfer the active ingredient back to the rest of the ant colony. Spraying can also be used to form a perimeter barrier treatment that ants don’t like to cross, effectively keeping ants outside the premises. Mr Green says the best way to try and restrict ants to enter the building is try not to leave any food scraps or sweet drinks out, and place unsealed food into plas-

tic containers or the refrigerator. “The recent rain should help a little bit but if the ants are already in the house you may have to contact your local pest man,” Mr Green said. But while the welcome rains may help solve the ant plague, the wetter weather can bring its own pest problems. “Recent rains will promote insect activity such as spiders, fleas and cockroaches,” Mr Green said.

THE sixth annual Coonamble Challenge and Campdraft (CCC) has been postponed due to the drought. Organisers of the three-day event, scheduled for late March, made the call earlier this month because of limited stock numbers. President of the CCC committee, Andrew Shearer, said it was a decision they saw coming. “Usually at this time, we are about six weeks out, we would know where we would be getting three quarters of our cattle at least, and we would have a fair idea of where we would be getting the balance, but at this stage, we basically have no cattle so that’s what we’ve had to do,” he told Dubbo Photo News. Mr Shearer explained that the prolonged dry spell means many cattle donors are short on grass and therefore can’t feed their usual stock numbers. And while many are disappointed about the decision, recent rainfall in the area has given the committee hope that the event may be rescheduled in a few months. “A lot of people have expressed disappointment that it’s not running but they also completely understand the conditions,” Mr Shearer said. “We are still hoping to run something, it would be in the second half of the year, but we will just have to wait and see how it pans out.”

To mark World Engineering Day on Wednesday, March 4, the Dubbo Electric Vehicle Interest, Owners, Users and Supporters (DEVIOUS, for short) group will host a public display of electric vehicles in the Western Plains Cultural Centre carpark between 11am and 1pm. All are welcome to learn more about the future of motoring and meeting experts and enthusiasts. The group launched their monthly meeting program open to the public and free to

join, for the first time ever on Wednesday, February 5. Pictured at the meeting are EV owners and supporters, from left to right, Chris Dalitz (Tesla Model S), Mathew

Dickerson (Tesla Model S), Matt Parmeter (supporter), Terry Skinner, Philip Bott (Tesla Model 3) and Michael Longhurst (Mazda Ute conversion).

“It’s very informal. The first Wednesday of every month has become popular with many electric vehicle groups and has sort of become a default which is why we chose

that,” Mr Dalitz said. During the meetup, a lunch and a chat will be held at the Western Plains Cultural Centre Café between midday and 1pm.

BUSHFIRE APPEAL

Dubbo to ‘Stand with Australia’ By JOHN RYAN

DUBBO car “bloke” Ali Arici was featured in Dubbo Photo News a couple of weeks ago to highlight his fundraiser, the ‘Stand With Australia Bushfire Appeal’. He leveraged his love of all things cars and his knowledge of local car buffs to get the local auto enthusiast community behind him, and so far hundreds of businesses and individuals have offered their support with prizes. The event will be staged at Hannaford Tyre and Suspension this Saturday, February 15, from 4pm to 9pm, and will be action-packed with plenty of local owners pledging to bring their classic cars along and donate to the cause. There’ll be a silent auction as well as other activities, but now Ali has received support from local firefighters who are keen to come along and not only say thanks, but also let people know all about the Rural Fire Service (RFS), and tell people how they can volunteer for such an important community cause. During the week, Dubbo Photo News had a Q&A session with Dubbo RFS HQ Brigade deputy captain Jacob Dunlop. ••• How long have you been in the RFS? Just over four years. Why did you join? I was working at an accounting firm at the time and wanted to be in a position to help the wider community, rather than sitting back watching something bad happen from behind my desk. How much personal satisfaction do you get from being involved in the RFS? Tonnes, I greatly enjoy what I do as part of the RFS along with the people that make up Dubbo HQ and the wider RFS. I have been places, done things

and learnt new skills that I wouldn’t have, had I not signed up. Ali’s organised a fundraising event – tell us why you think it’s important for you guys to get involved in that? Because after the fire is out and we all return to station there is always a lot more needing to be done in terms of rebuilding what has been lost, so any funds that can go towards the rebuilding of towns – or even towards fence posts for farms is

money well donated. It also gives the public a chance to put faces to the RFS members they have been constantly hearing about on the news and allows us to get the message out and discuss the importance about having a Bushfire Survival plan. How difficult is it to attract new volunteers for brigades across the region? I know for Dubbo HQ it’s not easy. We might put out a recruitment drive once a year and get a few peo-

ple interested, however very few will have the time commitment to stick around to get their basic course done. After all, volunteering doesn’t pay the bills. What would you say to people who are thinking about joining up? Speak to the local Fire Control Centre to find the nearest Brigade, give them a call and have a chat to the members to see if it is something you’d like. There are more roles in the RFS then just firefight-

ing if it doesn’t suit you. What sort of commitment do you have to make, or is that varied depending on time, etc? It varies on members’ lifestyle, family and work. We have some members who make almost every call and training, or we have some we might see once every month or so. The first thing we tell anyone thinking about joining Dubbo HQ, and this would go for almost all other brigades, is family comes first, then work, and finally RFS. There is never any pressure to make someone turn up if they can’t or don’t want to, but we do keep members on their toes with training – you can’t let those skills go to waste or be forgotten. Orana’s been very active in deploying volunteers and staff to wildfires across the state – how important is it for areas that are quiet to send people to fight these massive fires where local brigades are overwhelmed? It is critical; the members that put their hands up to go away on Strike Teams or as Incident Management Teams (IMTs) to these hard-hit areas are essentially the reinforcements for the local crews. Much like everyone, they have bills to pay and a family to look after, so can’t always be on the fire ground even if it is a large fire and is close to their town or homes, so the Strike Teams assist in alleviating some of the pressure on local crews. Anything you’d like to add? Dubbo HQ will be at the ‘Stand with Australia Bushfire Appeal’ on Saturday so if anyone has any questions, would like to ask about signing up, discuss their bushfire survival plan or even just to show the kids the fire trucks, we hope they come down and have a look.

Good response to call for fire volunteers By JOHN RYAN Getting the message out there to the whole community is critically important, according to Cumboogle Rural Fire Service (RFS) captain Christian Munge. The brigade’s shed was flooded with prospective new members after they ran a campaign including Dubbo Photo News stories asking for new people to join up and help the vital community service. “We had a great roll up of interested locals turn up at the Cumboogle RFS shed on Friday night,” Mr Munge said. “Everyone that came along had a genuine interest in getting involved with our brigade and helping to strengthen our community.” The crew used a number of methods for getting the message out, incoluding a letter box drop to residents in the area, a banner set up at the entrance to the shed, and the articles in Dubbo Photo News. “We had one lady come along who mentioned that she got the flyer and thought ‘I should do that’... then read the Photo News and thought further about it, and then saw our banner out the front of the shed and decided ‘that’s it we are going along’,” Mr Munge said. “So now we have another three new valuable members to welcome to our group. “A big thanks to our Cumboogle members and all the other volunteers from neighbouring brigades who came along to make the evening a very pleasant welcoming experience for all the new people,” he said. Fifteen application forms to join the brigade were filled out on the night, which would be a massive boost for a crew which has a core group of 15 volunteers, even if only half that number become active members. The horror season of bushfires has shown the RFS can become overwhelmed by the sheer scale and immense number of concurrent bushfires, as well as the importance of having a pool of trained people who can be deployed to fire grounds from areas which aren’t under threat. The Orana region has had volunteers coming and going to fight the worst fires across the state for months.

WHAT KIDS SAY

RURAL ROMANCE

Author draws on local life for new novel By LYDIA PEDRANA

Phoebe Christian Age: Four Favourite TV show? Finding Dory. Favourite game? To play Hide and Seek. What do you most like to get up to? Dance What makes you happy? Mum makes me happy. What makes you sad? When Mummy tells me to go in my room. Do you have any pets at home? I have a little doggy named Charlie. What would you do if you were the boss at home? Play with all my toys all the time. What is your favourite food? Red apple What do you want to be when you grow up? A doctor to help sick people feel better.

INTERNATIONAL bestselling author and Dubbo local, Alissa Callen, has just released her seventeenth novel. While her books are fictitious, Ms Callen draws inspiration from life in the country and the resilience of bush communities for her stories. Her latest release, The Boundary Fence, published by Harper Collins, is described as a “rural romance” set in a fictional town named Woodlea. “I love living in the central west and all my stories are woven from the scents, sights and sounds of my everyday rural life,” Ms Callen told Dubbo Photo News. “While Woodlea, the small town of windmills and yarnbombing, is fictitious, the landscape surrounding the town and the experiences of the local community are grounded in reality. “As for my characters, they

too are fictitious even though family and friends often try to work out who they could be based on.” Based on the characters of country vet, Ella, and divorcee, Saul, the pair fall in love through unlikely circumstances when he calls her to attend to an animal emergency. Sparks fly until hidden secrets are unveiled and the connection between them is threatened. “The Boundary Fence is an Australian story about hope and healing and having the courage to face the past,” Ms Callen said. A former teacher and counsellor, Ms Callen has always been intrigued by the life journeys people take.

WORK has started on the final stages of Dubbo Regional Council’s $9.9 million Purvis Lane Reconstruction Project. Council received a $500,000 Federal Government Roads to Recovery grant and $2.26 million from the State Government towards the project which is part of Council’s $15 million budget allocation for urban road capital works in 2019 to 2020, and almost $32 million over the next four years.

Mayor of the Dubbo Region Ben Shields said the project was improving connectivity and access through the business and industrial precinct. Pavement reconstruction and new stormwater infrastructure between Mallee Road and Yarrandale Road is expected to be finished by April. Further temporary traffic management will be in place during work on the Purvis Road-Yarrandale Road intersection.

Treasurer asked for drought assistance Dubbo Photo News is keen to see the positive stories of our region broadcast to the broader stage and so we assisted some Sydney journalism students with local information and contacts during their trip to the city last week. DANIELLA SCOTTI was one of those students. Here's her account of the whirlwind tour where they learnt much about the positive things going on in agriculture in the state's west, including Oldman Saltbush sustaining sheep during drought at Narromine.

By DANIELLA SCOTTI STUDENTS from the University of Technology, Sydney have wrapped up their tour of the Orana region. An eight-hour commute from Central Station to Dubbo saw six journalism students swap their city skyline for the scenic country. The regional reporting project is a first-time initiative out of the UTS School of Journalism. Four teams of students were deployed across various parts of NSW including the South Coast, Mid-North Coast, New England and the Orana region. The project is intended to discover how people in harshly impacted regions – hit by either bushfires, drought, dust storms and floods – are adapting to climate change. The students collected content for social media, podcasts, video packages and even a mini documentary that will all be available for viewing on UTS Central News in the coming weeks. Over the past week, the students looked at regenerative farming and solar-powered irrigation sys-

tems in Narromine, CO2 increases in Wellington Caves, water scarcity at Burrendong and even gained an insight into traditional land care techniques with Wiradjuri man David Towney in Dubbo. Locals, farmers, and environmentalists helped to shine a light on how climate change is changing the attitudes and practices of communities – even on the small-

est of levels. As one of the students lucky to have the opportunity to visit the region, I want to say thank you for the warm reception and hospitability by many of the locals. Arriving on the expectation of dry, hot weather, we were farewelled with a downpour of rain – an encouraging end to an insightful trip.

MEMBER for Dubbo Dugald Saunders has called for further financial support to be provided to residents and business owners in drought-impacted regions of regional NSW. Mr Saunders (pictured) wrote to NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet earlier this week calling for similar provisions to the ones applied to bushfire-affected parts of the state, including rate relief, and working capital and low interest loans. Mr Saunders said the proposed assistance would be similar to that rolled out across regions which have been affected by the devastating bushfires. “I have asked for rate relief for the first six months of the 2020/21 financial year, and for working capital loans of up to $50,000 and low interest loans of up to $500,000 to eligible businesses because these are measures that could help keep our towns afloat,” Mr Saunders said.

FOCUS ON FLETCHERS

Young Farmers tour Fletcher’s plant By JOHN RYAN 24-YEAR-OLD Jack Courts was one of more than 200 people who attended last week’s Young Farmer Business Program Conference in Dubbo and he was over the moon to see the rain while he was off the farm. “We moved to Wellington about five years ago from north of Bourke, so we downsized a bit and are currently running 1200 acres with a few cows and sheep and grow a bit of crop in winter for a bit of fodder – not so much in the last couple of years,” Mr Courts told Dubbo Photo News, remarking that even though times had been tough, Wellington has been a lot better off than Bourke. “It’s been a good change, we were treated with a few kind years to start with, and we’ve faced plenty of hard times before out at Bourke.” Dubbo Photo News caught up with Jack as he toured Fletcher International’s grain terminal and he was glad he caught up for a one-on-one conversation with CEO Melissa Fletcher. “It’s a wonderful experience and when you have the opportunity to do these things I think you ought to jump on it. It’s a networking thing – I’ve run into about half a dozen people I sort of knew and sort of know through other peo-

ple so it’s a good opportunity,” Mr Courts said of the gathering in Dubbo. He stressed the newfound importance of social media as a way to stay connected with other young farmers, to keep in touch, and to share knowledge, experiences as well as helping each other out. “It’s very important, the network and the contacts, it’s so easy to stay in contact with people these days through social media (to keep up) with what everyone’s doing. “I’m interested, with the tours especially, to see what’s happening. We’ve sold sheep to Fletcher’s before so it’s good to see what’s happening to the end product.” The group also had the opportunity to tour the Booths’ farm which Mr Courts described as interesting. “It’s a very intensive operation, so just to see what I can learn and bring back to our own operation (was worthwhile),” he said. Tom Sutherland is just down the road at Spicers Creek on a mixed cropping and grazing enterprise and is passionate about the importance of groundcover, particularly in light of recent rains. “Groundcover is always key and that’s what we’re learning to get better at, and feeding our sheep. All our sheep now are locked up in feedlots, we’ve sold all our wean-

ers – it probably wasn’t done as early as I’d have liked but we’re still in a very good position,” Mr Sutherland said. He said local farmers around Spicers Creek already communicate with each other a fair bit,

“but we need to do more”, and networking opportunity presented by the Dubbo conference was valuable. “It’s incredibly important to see what other people are doing and how to improve,” Mr Courts said.

“I spent a bit of time working with a few corporate farms down south and saw how they have their manager meeting every month and talk about what they’re doing and brainstorming a lot of ideas around – I want to take that aspect and bring it on to our family farm.” 20-year-old Molly Wright left school more than three years ago and just wanted to farm. “I finished school in 2016 and came home onto the family farm at Peak Hill, so there’s Mum and Dad and two of us four kids are full time on the farm, myself and my brother. I just love it, I love the lifestyle and I don’t really see it as a job,” Ms Wright said “At the start I was just pretty much helping out, coming home for the harvest, and then they said stick around – that was three years ago and it got busy when the drought hit us.” She signed up for the Young Farmer Conference to meet like-minded younger farmers and get as much knowledge as possible from her peers and industry experts. “As well as learning a lot it’s a big boost socially. Nowadays it’s not really what you know, it’s who you know. You meet all these people everywhere, you make contacts with grain and livestock people,” she said.

Be prepared for anything, CEO advises By JOHN RYAN MELISSA FLETCHER may be CEO of the family company but she took plenty of time out of her day to speak to groups of young farmers touring the processing plant and grain terminal during last week’s Young Farmer Business Program Conference in Dubbo. She shared plenty of insights about what’s needed to succeed in the tumultuous world of agriculture but said the company’s grain terminal was a classic example of a culture of teamwork striving to diversify when the seasons turn against you. She described “the growing pains” of having massive bumper years and not being geared up to handle them, which then prompted improvements to their operation, and then getting things down pat only to then have nothing because of the drought and the season. “To watch your team – the core and heart of the team – grow, contract, grow, contract, introduce new products and freight when there isn’t any grain to have is just unbelievable,” Ms Fletcher said. Just as many farmers grow up on the land and learn the trade by working in the family business, she said her early start gave her a great grounding for the industry.

“I’ve worked at the plant since I was about 12. I was there at the opening day and spent a lot of my time being my father’s sheepdog, so I’ve watched it grow, and there’s a lot of things I’ve seen with our Dubbo culture and the teamwork and culture that happens over at this site “When I first worked in the cold room at 12, which is where we do the cutting up through the bandsaws, I packed every leg that came down one belt – now we have belts everywhere and different cuts go-

ing left, right and centre, and this is probably the biggest understanding I need to get through to farmers and producers. “It is a different industry – it’s all about market access and lamb can go to 62 different customers. “We have to constantly do things better in terms of sustainability – if you stand still, you’re going to go broke, that’s just the honest truth. You have to be absolutely prepared for every kind of thing that can come at you,” she said.

In recent times the challenges for the company have been immense, from years of drought to the Coronavirus which has shut down Chinese ports and markets, and now the welcome rains which should see many producers holding stock back from sale as they rebuild their flocks, which could see a general tightening of the market. Continued strong demand, limited international competition and a forecast drop in sheep and lamb supply is expected to see prices

remain at historically high levels, according to Meat & Livestock Australia’s (MLA) 2020 Sheep Industry Projections. The national flock underwent a significant decline in 2019 as breeding ewes continued to be offloaded and marking rates were negatively affected by ongoing drought in many key sheep production regions. MLA Senior Market Analyst, Adam Cheetham, said the national flock is forecast to fall 3.5 per cent to 63.7 million head by June 2020, representing the lowest national flock since 1904, and a cumulative fall of 12 per cent since June 2017, prior to the latest drought. “Sheep slaughter is forecast to decline 22 per cent to 7.2 million head in 2020 and lamb slaughter is anticipated to decline to 21 million head, which is 8 per cent below the pre-drought peak in 2016. “This reflects the impact of the diminished breeding flock, generally lower marking rates and the expectation of greater retention of ewe lambs on-farm,” he said. Despite the poor conditions, average national carcase weights improved in 2019 and are anticipated to do so again in 2020, helping to offset the impact of reduced slaughter on sheepmeat production.

Trial role aims to improve dementia care CAREERS By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY BALLIMORE local Sharon Doyle works in Dubbo for Dementia Australia in a trial role of Dementia Care Navigator. “The Aged Care Navigators trial explores the best way to help older people navigate through the aged care system. The position is dementia specific and aims to help people living with dementia, their carers and family to overcome the barriers to the care and support they need. I have been in this position now for 11 months,” Mrs Doyle said. The trial is delivered in Dubbo and Perth by Dementia Australia as part of a consortium led by COTA Australia and funded by the Australian government. “I love my job and I love to network, but the most rewarding aspect is helping people help themselves. There is a great satisfaction in showing people there are options and even more satisfaction in the relief that often shows on their faces.” However, there are frustrations within the aged care system. “Most prominent would be the access to services and respite in rural and remote areas, particularly for people living with dementia, and for their carer,” she said. Mrs Doyle has a background in

nursing although being an RN was not a prerequisite for the role. “I finished my Nursing Certificate in 1987 and since then have trained as a midwife, worked in public health, health promotion, community nursing, within correctional facilities, in public and private hospitals, mostly rural and remote areas in NSW and the NT. “In recent years my focus has

been on aged care. I have a broad experience base and that helps me relate to people I work with. With experience comes the ability to network and advocate for the benefit of others,” she said. “Like anyone else in our community, people living with dementia need good support and appropriate person-centred care options. They need access to ap-

propriate diagnosis and ongoing medical and social support. As a community we need to be understanding and accepting. “Carers need access to good care and support both for the person they care for and, importantly, for themselves. Caring for someone can be an exhausting and stressful time so it’s important for carers to look after themselves,” Mrs

Doyle said. Today, there is an estimated 3300 people living with dementia in the federal electorate of Parkes. Without a medical breakthrough, that number is expected to increase to an estimated 4400 people living with dementia in this electorate by 2058. “Most people don’t realise I can come to see them at home. That makes it a lot easier for an elderly couple for example, where one has dementia and the other is a carer.” To break into the field of dementia-specific aged care, Mrs Doyle suggests learning as much about dementia and aging as you can. “Understand the aged care system and practice person-centred care. Talk to people already working in this area because there’s lots of experience and knowledge out there,” she said. Dementia is the term used to describe the symptoms of a large group of illnesses which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning. It is a broad term used to describe a loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical functioning. There is no cure for dementia and it is not a normal part of ageing. For more information contact Sharon Doyle on 0438663530 or visit her at the Seniors Week Expo, Tuesday, February 18, RSL Club Dubbo between 9.30am and midday. For other assistance, call the National Dementia Helpline 1800100500.

RURAL

Young farmers feed the world By JOHN RYAN

COINCIDING with what many people hope is drought-breaking, drenching and widespread rainfall, more than 200 people from across the state assembled in Dubbo for the Young Farmer Business Program Conference at the end of last week. Many attendees told Dubbo Photo News they booked in to the conference when there were still no rain predicted, and that despite the debilitating dry time, they believe agriculture has a positive future. The conference saw farm tours to local enterprises on Day 1 including the Dickens’ farm and livestock operation near Yeoval, the abattoir and grain terminal at Fletcher International Exports on Dubbo’s northern outskirts, and Geurie’s Booth Agriculture, a first-generation farm business supplying multiple food products. The impressive line-up of speakers included reality TV star Mark Bouris on why farmers need to be entrepreneurs to succeed, former Wallabies’ captain Stirling Mortlock who told his story from Wallabies captain to wealth advisor, and author Chris Helder who spoke about “the simple shift� – how useful thinking changes the way you see everything. Panellists for the Q&A included insect farmer Olympia Yarger, commercial fisherman Paul Aquilina and was chaired by commu-

nicator Cory Hague. NSW agriculture minister Adam Marshall said the conference was a vital event for younger farmers and said his department would be tasked with making it an annual fixture on the ag calendar. “Absolutely, based on the success already, the numbers, with more than 220 young farmers and fishers here, and given the seasonal conditions we’ve had, I think this is tremendous,� Mr Marshall said. “It’s been a great line-up of guest speakers and I’m very confident we’ll continue this year on

year and hopefully at different locations around the state.� He said he’s pleased so many young people see such a bright a future on the land. “The reality is, no matter what happens in the world, people still need to eat, people still need to be clothed, and increasingly our primary products that we produce in Australia are in much higher demand internationally,� Mr Marshall said. Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders said it was great to see the inaugural conference in the

electorate. “They’re our future leaders in many ways so I think getting them here, having the first one here in Dubbo is fantastic,� Mr Saunders said. “We’ve got people from all over the state and further afield that have come here to share some of their stories, but also they’re actually talking about networking and staying connected and sharing their stories of success. Digitally, it’s so easy to do these days so it’s a fantastic thing to have here in Dubbo.�

Have your say on CBD concepts RESIDENTS are being asked to nominate their choice of concepts in development in the Dubbo’s Macquarie River CBD master plan. The concepts, called Wandering Stage and Dubbo Borough, will be on public exhibition until next month. People can name their preferred concept through council’s online survey and comment on their favourite features in the two concepts that incorporate performance stage areas, contemporary design elements including a sculptural roundabout, plaza nodes and play spaces. Mayor of the Dubbo Region, Councillor Ben Shields, said: “We want to create greater access to the Macquarie River and significantly enhance the precinct, making it a great location for large community and commercial events and better connectivity between our CBD and the river precinct.�

PRISTINE CAR STILL DRIVING THE PRECIOUS MEMORIES By JOHN RYAN ANNETTE Gardner’s FB Holden looks like it rolled out of the GMH factory just a couple of years ago, the immaculate Aussie version of the 1957 finned Chevrolet drawing plenty of stares and comments at the city’s first Classic Cars and Coffee for 2020. The car was left to her brother in Canowindra, but after a long running

battle with illness he was keen for her to take charge of the family heirloom, doing a deal last December. “This car has been in our family for 60 years,� Mrs Gardner said. “Dad maintained it from new. After six months, the lady he worked for didn’t like it so Dad said he’d buy it, I can’t remember how much he paid for it but it’s been in the family since then. “It used to be Mum’s car. She used

Mrs Gardner has many fine memories of driving in the FB as a family and says if her dad went anywhere in it heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just sit in it because he was frightened somebody would pinch it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to come out in the rain. When we were little, we kids werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to shut the doors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get out and Dad would walk around and shut the doors for us,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Gardner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priceless, absolutely priceless. It brings back a lot of memories, things that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forgotten that happened years ago suddenly pop up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a bit sad because Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not here anymore and I know how much he cherished the car, but I do feel good to have it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Husband Robert is one of Dubboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keenest car enthusiasts and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spray painted plenty of classic cars in his time. He says the quality of the 60-year-old paint has to be seen to be believed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priceless. We bought the car as a legacy to Annetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had it since brand new basically and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintained it exquisitely,â&#x20AC;?

I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the duco on the car is still as good as it is. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always garaged it; words canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain how well he looked after it, pictures donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it justice, you have to see it in the flesh to understand the quality of this car,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Dubbo Photo News February 13-19, 2020 LEGAL TRADITION

Ceremony heralds new law year By JOHN RYAN IT’S an ancient and honoured tradition to stage a formal “Law Term Opening” each year, dating back to the middle ages when judges prayed at the start of the legal term. These judges, whose courts were held in Westminster Hall, walked to Westminster Abbey to take part in the service. Fast-forward to 2020 Dubbo which this week hosted the only such official ceremony in the state’s central and far west. While Monday’s proceedings were formal, it’s doubtful any of those Middle Ages jurists ever experienced a smoking ceremony in their courtrooms to kick off the year. Welcome to the courtroom of newly appointed District Court Judge Nanette Williams, who grew up in Dubbo and completed her HSC at the former Dubbo High School and went on to study law at Sydney University. “I want, this term, to serve you with fairness, impartiality, diligence, hard work and consideration,” Judge Williams told the packed No.2 courtroom, so full that extra seating had to be brought in for the crowded gallery. “The rule of law is fundamental in a society.

“I hope to be a faithful servant to the highest ideals of the judiciary,” she said. Christopher Maxwell QC is a senior crown prosecutor; he made the trip to Dubbo and said he was incredibly impressed. “The smoking ceremony today in the Dubbo District Court is one that is greatly respected by the crown prosecutors of NSW, it’s been a privilege to be here and we wish her honour, Judge Nan-

ette Williams, all good fortune in her time here,” Mr Maxwell said. “We know her well and we’re very confident that she will be a wonderful asset to the administration of justice in the central west.” Mr Maxwell said it’s important to start the law year off with a reaffirmation of the law, the civility between practitioners on both sides and the importance of justice. “Nothing could be more im-

portant than to do it in this way, to make it strongly ceremonial but in a very meaningful way,” Mr Maxwell said. “This particular commencement of the law term is one of the most powerful and meaningful that I’ve ever attended.” The official ceremony at the court room was followed by a church service at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church and then a morning tea in the church hall.

NEWS OPINION AND ANALYSIS by JOHN RYAN

Andy’s P-Plate theory FORMER long-time Dubbo resident Andy McQuie moved to Coffs Harbour last year and last weekend he conducted his own road safety experiment. A keen environmentalist, he picked up 37 ‘L’ and ‘P’ Plates in a one kilometre stretch of the Pacific Highway during a walk. “Do the maths and this means there are about 16,280 on the road between Coffs Harbour and Sydney,” Mr McQuie said. “It probably also means there are a lot of inexperienced drivers out there that we don’t know about because their plates are lying discarded in the gutter.” Just another thing to worry about on our roads.

Narromine pursuit, arrest POLICE have arrested a 23-yearold man after a car and foot pursuit in and around the town. Just before lunch on February 6 officers were patrolling Narromine CBD and observed a Ford Falcon travelling on Burraway Street. They attempted to stop the car after checks revealed it was displaying plates belonging to another vehicle. Police allege the driver wouldn’t stop so a pursuit was initiated and it continued through several streets and properties in Narromine and came to a stop after police deployed road spikes on an Old Backwater Road property. The driver and passenger fled on foot and were arrested after a short foot pursuit and both were transported to Dubbo Police Station. The 23-year-old driver was charged with police pursuit – not stop – drive dangerously, use unregistered motor vehicle on road, use registrable vehicle not display authorised number-plates, destroy or damage property, and drive motor vehicle during disqualification period. The passenger, a 29-year-old woman, was released following further inquiries.

PCYC farewell LAST Friday night about 100 people gathered at the Dubbo PCYC to say thank you as they farewelled long serving club manager Mark Nuttall who retired after 15 years at the helm. Under his watch as manager, Dubbo PCYC went from having membership in the hundreds to having membership in the thou-

sands and he was also at the helm when significant modifications and extensions to the Dubbo PCYC were undertaken, including the completion of a state of the art gymnastics facility. Mark has also been the driving force behind many PCYC activities, and when the PCYC caravan was out and about, at venues around the community, you’d always find Mark assisting with making food and serving patrons. Everyone present wished him a long and happy retirement.

Firies need to breathe THERE’S been growing concern during the past few months that volunteer fire-fighters don’t have adequate protection against the constant inhalation of smoke into their lungs. This fire season, many volunteers have been exposed to far more bushfires and for far longer periods of deployment, and public concern was so great that crowd-funding campaigns were initiated to provide masks which filter out deadly toxins. The fire-fighter C.A.N.C.E.R Coalition (Coalition Aiming for National Carcinogen Exposure Reduction) claims current equipment doesn’t do the job and the state opposition weighed in, with Labor’s shadow emergency services minister Trish Doyle scathing in her attack. “The Berejiklian Government should be giving our fire-fighters what they need to stay alive. Fire-fighters should not be given insufficient masks which are the lowest and cheapest form of protection,” the shadow minister said. “The dangers of bushfire smoke have been known for decades – our fire-fighters need protection against the carcinogens and toxic chemicals that can potentially

cause cancer,” Ms Doyle said. Labor Opposition Whip in the Legislative Council Mark Buttigieg joined the fray. “We are concerned about the long-term health of our fire-fighters,” Mr Buttigieg said. “Fire-fighters are risking their lives in hazardous conditions and they should not be forced to supply their own essential safety equipment or rely on crowd funding,” he added. Emergency services minister David Elliott said he’s recently met with representatives of the Firefighter Cancer Coalition to discuss the welfare of fire-fighters and the issues around smoke exposure during bushfires. “The welfare of our fire-fighters is always our utmost priority, we are committed to ensuring that our frontline emergency services personnel, be they salaried or volunteer, have adequate protections as they go about their duties to keep us safe,” Mr Elliott said. “The NSW RFS has worked closely with Safe Work NSW and the Australian Fire and Emergency Services Council to assess our P2 fire resistant masks as fit for purpose. “I have spoken to the RFS Commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons, who will conduct a review of personal protective equipment at the end of the bushfire season, including any induction and associated education,” he said. The Government has also announced an independent bushfire inquiry. It’s important to learn lessons from disasters such as the recent bushfires and just fix those things which need to be fixed.

Drugs and guns A MAN has been charged with numerous offences following a stab-

bing in Lightning Ridge. Police say on the morning of February 6, two men, aged 31 and 25, were involved in a physical altercation out the front of a newsagency on Morilla Street, Lightning Ridge. The 25-year-old sustained a large stab wound to his stomach. He contacted relatives who took him to Lightning Ridge Hospital for treatment and police were contacted. He was subsequently airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition. The 31-year-old also presented to Lightning Ridge Hospital suffering a broken tooth as well as abrasions to his face. He was arrested and taken to the local police station after receiving medical treatment. Investigations saw police execute a warrant at the 31-year-old’s Lightning Ridge home where they allegedly seized a bolt action.22 rifle, 118 rounds of.22 ammunition, a slingshot, about 1kg of cannabis, a knife, two surveillance cameras and clothing. He was charged with wound person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, supply cannabis more than indictable and less than a commercial quantity, possess prohibited drug, possess unauthorised firearm, possess unregistered firearm, not keep firearm safely, possess ammunition without holding licence/permit/authority, and possess or use a prohibited weapon without permit. He was refused bail to appear before Walgett Local Court.

Narromine sheep stolen RECENT rains will see a spike in stock prices so I hope rural crime investigators catch the perps who stole 31 cross-bred ewe lambs from a property between Trangie and Dandaloo sometime between January 22 and February 2.

The lambs (pictured) were around six to seven months old and tagged with a green tag, PIC NJ221565. Photos of the stock are shown here. If you have any information about this theft, please contact the Rural Crime Investigator at Mudgee Police Station on 02 6372 8599 or Crime Stoppers on 1800

333 000.

Coolah quad flogged WHAT is it about these crims who steal things just before the rain, that will either shoot up in value or which will be sorely needed? Police are investigating the theft of a yellow 2015 Can-Am 500 quad bike from a property on the Coolah Creek Road at Coolah between February 7 and 10. The quad bike’s serial number is 3JBLGAK29FJ000487 and it was taken from an open shed on the property. The bike also had two hooks on the handlebars enabling carriage of a rifle and when the ignition is turned on it displays the word Monteray on the display panel. If anyone has any information about this theft, they can contact Coonabarabran Police Station on 02 6842 7299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Lamb theft and dismemberment WARREN police are investigating the theft and subsequent killing of two lambs from a rural property on the Bundermar Road, Warren between the February 3 and 4. The two lambs were 2nd cross and between six and seven months old. They were stolen from a paddock and found by the owner on the outside of the fence line about six kilometres from the Oxley Highway intersection. If anyone can assist police with this incident, please contact Warren Police Station on 02 6847 4204 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Cumboogle success ONE positive to come from this horror bushfire season is a renewed appreciation of the efforts put in by Rural Fire Service volunteers. A few decades ago, when so many more people lived in the bush and smaller towns, people were involved with their local bushfire brigades out of necessity, and everyone knew everyone else in their communities so all pitched in for the common good. These days there are less people on the land and everyone has less time, so it’s great to see a resounding turnout to Cumboogle Brigade’s call for new members.

Police urge safety and commonsense in floods POLICE and emergency services are urging the community not to take risks in the current wet weather conditions being experienced across much of NSW. Over the past week, the Bureau of Meteorology issued multiple severe weather warnings for areas across the state with heavy rainfall, with potential for periods of torrential rainfall and life-threatening flash-flooding in some regions. Deputy State Emergency Operations Controller, Assistant Commissioner Karen Webb, said police have responded to or been made aware of incidents resulting from people taking unnecessary risks or displaying dangerous behaviour.

“I’m disappointed that I need to remind people to act responsibly and not to take risks in these types of conditions, especially when around floodwaters,” assistant commissioner Webb said. “We are investigating after a video surfaced online... of a man jet skiing in floodwaters on the Central Coast, which is behaviour so reckless I can barely comprehend it. “Officers from Brisbane Water Police District and local residents put their lives at risk... to rescue five men whose fishing boat capsized as they tried to navigate in the dark to go fishing – the water conditions were so dangerous that Marine Area Command were unable to assist,

yet none of the men were wearing life jackets, and struggled to swim,” she said. Police have also responded to assist dozens of motorists across NSW who’ve become trapped after driving their vehicles into flood waters. NSW SES is also urging residents to prepare their homes for storm events, recommending: z Move vehicles under cover or away from trees; z Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony; z Keep at least eight metres away from fallen power lines or objects that may be energised, such as fences; z Trees that have been dam-

aged by fire are likely to be more unstable and more likely to fall; z Report fallen power lines to your energy provider; z Don’t drive, ride or walk through flood water; z Keep clear of creeks and storm drains; z If you are trapped by flash flooding, seek refuge in the highest available place. For assistance in floods and storms, contact the local SES Unit on 132 500. In the event of an emergency or a life-threatening incident, always call Triple Zero (000). More information about staying safe in extreme weather events is available at www.ses. nsw.gov.au.

While most official police warnings have related to coastal flooding, inland NSW has also seen flash flooding. This photo was taken at a creek crossing at Balladoran. PHOTO: SHERRIDEN GWYN

Dubbo Photo News February 13-19, 2020

Near death experience in flash flood EMERGENCY REPORT By JOHN RYAN POPULAR local muso Jason Hill says he’s incredibly lucky to be alive. In a tale of survival more reminiscent of a Netflix suspense drama, Jason was driving back home to Dubbo from Newcastle at about 9 o’clock last Sunday night when he hit a wall of water about 30 kilometres east of Dunedoo that he described as being ‘as wide as the Murray River’. “It was raining heavier and heavier and all of a sudden the water was right there in front of me,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “I didn’t have a hope to stop and I just crashed into the water. It hit the side of the car and it was a torrent. It was swirling with mud and trees, it was a flash flood. “When the car hit the water I realised what had happened but it was completely too late, the water came up over the bonnet and the car just floated away, the headlights were still on and the motor was still running and it just carried me off. “A tree caught hold of my bumper bar and it started the car spinning round, I put my window down because I thought on these modern cars everything could just lock – I thought I wouldn’t be able to get the doors or windows open

if everything failed,” he said. Mr Hill said the car was floating and spinning freely while trees and other debris pounded it. He couldn’t see any evidence of the road and he had no idea where he was, but decided not to climb onto the car’s roof. “I sat on the edge of the top of the door, the water was right up there and I looked down into the water thinking if I jump in there, it’s all swirling mud and branches and trees and I thought I wouldn’t get out of that very well,” Mr Hill said. “I felt a bit panicked but then I composed myself and thought well, okay, there’s no use panicking and I kept my right toes stretched down on the accelerator, I wanted to keep the exhaust pumping fumes out so the water wouldn’t go back up into the motor.” He stuck with his strategy of keeping the engine revving, hoping against hope that he’d hit some ground he could utilise. He thought that if he could get traction somewhere he might be safe. “It seemed like forever but it was probably just three or four minutes I reckon where I was just floating along and then the car jammed onto something and I could just see in front of the car a reflector on top of a guide post just under the water and the wheels started

g t ugh hou “I tho I was dead” getting traction,” he said. “I was really lucky... I crept forward a little bit but the motor wasn’t really doing very good, but it managed to crawl out and then I didn’t know where the road was. “I couldn’t see the road, there was just mud so I got it right in the centre of where I thought the road was and it slowly crawled out which was good,” he said. He managed to keep the car limping along with the motor just barely holding its own after being submerged for so long, but it slowly made ground. “It wasn’t in a good way and there were trees that were in this torrent just smashing into the car, so it was banging the car up pretty bad,” Mr Hill said.

“I’ll tell you what, hats off to Mitsubishi because the water didn’t get through the rubber door seals, and the water was up to the windscreen, so a good endorsement for Mitsubishi let me tell you. (My car) was a diesel and I was lucky it ran as well as it did. “I almost died, I honestly thought this is it, I (had always) thought I’d be calm when facing death, but I was honestly freaking terrified – drowning in muddy rapids isn’t how I want to go,” he said. Mr Hill got a lift back to Dubbo with his backpack and phone. He believes his car is a write-off but he said he’s just glad to be alive.

Plans for more pool parking

Dubbo Regional Councillors and CEO at the site of a proposed carpark on Talbragar Street, between the train station and ALDI.

EXCLUSIVE By LYDIA PEDRANA A 1.56-HECTARE block, located adjacent to the Dubbo Aquatic Leisure Centre (DALC), is being considered for a car park. The vacant land, located 154-174 Talbragar Street between the train station and ALDI, was purchased by the Dubbo Regional Council for $3.2 million last year. Given its central proximity, Mayor Ben Shields said a carpark would benefit the DALC, as well as those visiting Victoria Park, Council’s Civic Administration Building, Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre (DRTCC), and the Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC). “This is a strategic acquisition that gives the Council a lot of options to meet the short-term and long-term needs of the community,” Cr Shields

said. “It is rare for such a large vacant block so close to the CBD to be available and Council has identified some exciting opportunities to make use of it. “At this stage, there have been no concepts done up for what a carpark may look like, but this gives architects and planners an opportunity to use it as part of the coming expansion of the Dubbo Aquatic Leisure Centre.” Cr Shields also said Council is looking into an electricity installation connected to the DALC to offset the day-time energy demand used by the facility. Council also disclosed that the land was purchased with $1,806,202 of surplus delivered at the June 2018 quarterly financial review, and $1,393,798 sourced from internally restricted assets.

LOCAL HISTORY

IN BRIEF

Burrendong’s hidden history

Coonabarabran locals to be surveyed on bypass LOCAL businesses and individuals are being encouraged by Transport for NSW to complete a survey on the Coonabarabran Bypass, with project team members visiting the community. Transport for NSW Western Region Director Alistair Lunn said after announcing the preferred route for the Coonabarabran Bypass late last year, that the project team wants to gather more information from the community to guide the next steps. “The Newell Highway through Coonabarabran is a key route for commuters, visitors and the freight industry alike, and a bypass will provide safer journeys in the region for all road users,” Mr Lunn said. “Now the preferred route has been decided and publicly displayed, the project team is conducting a review of environmental factors (REF) for the project and is interested in gathering information from the community. “The project team wants to understand the local economy, how businesses operate and where their customers come from. They also want to talk with community members to hear how the bypass may impact them,” he said.

Dubbo local Gary Braithwaite spent three years working with Wellington locals “Redfin” Inwood, “Slim” Gersbach and other local old timers to create an historical map of Burrendong. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY THREE years of repeated visits to Lake Burrendong with two elderly gentlemen, who had lived in the valley before the dam wall was built, has resulted in the production of an historical map detailing residents, properties, schools, sites of hold-ups and murders and even where the best gold was to be found. Many of these locations are currently exposed at the moment while Burrendong is at 1.5 per cent but for local man Gary Braithwaite, the privilege of helping capture the region’s history is a great reward. He met former Wellington resident, the late Bill “Redfin” Inwood, at Wheelers Gardens retirement village and soon realised Mr In-

wood’s wealth of knowledge about the dam needed to be recorded. Mr Inwood had spent his younger years living in one of the two townships in the valley with his old mate “Slim” Gersbach. One day “Redfin” asked Mr Braithwaite to take him to the dam and there proposed the idea of making a map. “Not knowing what was involved, I said yes. I reasoned the dam had a lot of hidden history which would be lost forever,” Mr Braithwaite said. Two groups were set up, in Wellington and Stuart Town, with local “old timers” and the information came together on dozens of pieces of paper with names and numbers. “One of the stories Redfin used to tell about the valley involved

former Australian Prime Minister, Billy Hughes, whose second wife Mary Campbell came from a farming family who lived on a holding near today’s dam. “When Redfin was about eight years old, Billy Hughes visited the township and spoke with his father Jim. “You will not see it Jim,” Mr Hughes had said. “But you will you, Bill. This great dam wall will provide for all the towns downstream, proving a source of permanent water supply for out back towns.’” On the map there are 213 points of interest. These include Cookey’s Flat and Gum Flat schools, Yahoo Gold Mine, the site where a man called Jack King drowned in a mine and was found in a tree three months later.

“There are some really good books about the history of Burrendong too. The Ghosts of Burrendong, the Early History of Burrendong and the Winds of Change are all very good reads,” Mr Braithwaite said. “At this point I would also like to express my personal thanks to the former state member for Orange Andrew Gee and the State Government department in Dubbo which made sure the completed map and original drawings are safe and sealed away for the future information on this outstanding engineering project,” he said. The Burrendong Dam Historical Map is available for sale the at the Colour Copy Shop, Dubbo with special permission by the NSW Government’s Land and Property Management Authority.

Answers wanted over euthanised dog By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY IN early November last year, Wellington resident Fiona Taufa was in Tuncurry helping family evacuate from bushfires, all the while worrying about the welfare of a dog sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rescued in July after it had been surrendered to the Dubbo City Animal Shelter. A series of events left the blue and white staffy in her care for three months and Mrs Taufa had become fond of the animal to the point of nicknaming it Tui. The day after finding the female staffy, a visit to Wellington Vet Hospital to scan for a microchip found a breeder, but no owner contact details. The vet broke with usual guidelines and returned the dog to Mrs Taufaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care but advised theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d contact the ranger who would collect the dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vet has confirmed that the dog was taken there for a microchip scan. Ordinarily, vets would take lost dogs into their care when a resident brings them in; however, for reasons we cannot explain, this did not happen and the dog went home with the resident who found her,â&#x20AC;? a Dubbo Regional Council spokesperson said. Four months later a ranger did come, and Mrs Taufa alleges she was assured â&#x20AC;&#x153;that after four months and no known enquiries being made to the Wellington Pound or vet, it would be okay to adoptâ&#x20AC;?.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ranger said that he would make it clear in his notes, and the notes to the Dubbo Pound, that I would adopt Tui from the pound after the 14 days, without having her put up on the adoption notice board,â&#x20AC;? she said. Council has confirmed that Mrs Taufaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to adopt was made known to the shelter, but that the Animal Shelter Operations coordinator had explained there was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no guarantee the dog would go up for adoption, but if it did, council would give Tui (back) with another family memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog in August 2019. her a call.â&#x20AC;?

As per the vetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations, council authorised the vet to euthanise the dog, in Dubbo (not Brisbane). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not known whether she contracted parvovirus before or after coming into the council pound; however, the virus is very easily spread through dust particles, and given the number of dust storms weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had recently, this could have been a contributing factor,â&#x20AC;? the council spokesperson said. The Dubbo region experienced 17 significant dust storms between September and December 2019. As per the Companion Animal Act 1998, a lost animal must be delivered as soon as possible to its owner, a council pound or an approved premise such as councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animal shelter which should receive the animal within 72 hours. Keeping an animal longer than this is breaching the act and they can be fined. When the ranger collected Tui from Mrs Taufa, who had tried every avenue to find the owner, she was told police could charge her with possession of stolen goods if she kept Tui. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an unfortunate situation where there was a communication breakdown with the vet; however, Dubbo Regional Council ensured the resident who found the dog was told the correct information and followed the correct pro-

cedures in line with the law,â&#x20AC;? the council spokesperson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the coming weeks, council will be increasing its messages around parvovirus and the importance of vaccinations, especially considering how many windy dust storms weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had recently.â&#x20AC;? None of this allays Mrs Taufaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bitterness and grief. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tui was a beautiful, gentle natured dog. So calm and intuitive around people of all ages and other animals and could be playful, cheeky and a hint of stubbornness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is because of these qualities in Tui that myself and my family fell in love with her, but we also felt that a dog so beautiful must be terribly missed by someone. Also, our fear was that maybe a child or children were missing her, which is why we attempted as much as possible to search for Tuiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners, and probably reached out more than the pound or the rangers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pound had only posted Tui on their own page of lost and found. My family and I posted on numerous sites, door knocked and kept communication with all who needed to know where she was (vet/council), but yet, I (felt) constantly accused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things in this world, bureaucracy the biggest, that have gone to the dogs,â&#x20AC;? she said in reference to a similar story published in Dubbo Photo News (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Has Common Sense Gone to the Dogsâ&#x20AC;?, December 12, 2019).

DEBATE

Brits blow up over beer tax, but we pay more By LYDIA PEDRANA POLLIES in the United Kingdom are up in arms about the tax pommies pay on beer, however Aussies pay a full third more than they do. Brewers Association of Australia CEO Brett Heffernan has used the UK debate as an example, calling for the Australian government to cut the duty rate punters pay on beer here at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the Brits are spitting chips over their beer tax, Aussies are just about weeping in their Weet-Bix,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At $2.26 per litre, Aussies pay the fourth highest beer tax in the industrialised world, while the Brits at $1.52 (AUD) per litre are a distant fifth.â&#x20AC;? Earlier this month, the BBC reported on a debate in Westminster Hall where politicians from all sides blamed the UK beer tax and high business rates for putting many local pubs out of business. To shouts of â&#x20AC;&#x153;shameâ&#x20AC;?, Tory MP Mike Wood said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you bought a pint in each of the other [main] beer-producing countries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a pint in Germany, a pint in the Netherlands, one in Spain, one in Belgium and one in Poland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you would still have paid less duty on those five pints than you would have on just a single pint bought in Britain.â&#x20AC;? But you might be surprised to learn that since 1983, beer tax-

Brewers Association of Australia CEO Brett Heffernan

es in Australia have quietly crept up each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer tax went up last week and it will go up, again, in August,â&#x20AC;? Mr Heffernan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets worse for Aussies enjoying a beer. We pay tax on our tax. The 10 per cent GST applies to everything, including the beer tax.â&#x20AC;? According to the Brewers Association of Australia, in 201616 the Australian government sucked $3.613 billion from beer drinkers. To break that down, that is $2.01 billion in beer tax, $201 million in GST on the beer tax, then a further $1.4 billion in GST at the retail end. Referencing UK Prime Minis-

ter Boris Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promise to freeze â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sin taxesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, including alcohol, if he were ever elected, Mr Heffernan thinks the Brits might be in for some reprieve. But he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think simply freezing Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s automatic six-monthly beer tax hike is good enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that would do is lock-in the extreme beer tax Aussies are already paying,â&#x20AC;? Mr Heffernan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only by cutting the rate of beer tax can punters see serious relief at the checkout and in the pub.â&#x20AC;? z What do you think of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer tax?

WORK to remove contaminated material and resurface a section of the Golden Highway near Elong Elong was completed by the weekend. “The Golden Highway was closed 5km east of Elong Elong between Dubbo and Dunedoo after a B-double fuel tanker rolled and spilled about 30,000 litres of fuel in early January. “Since then, we have worked around the clock to remediate the road,” Transport for NSW Regional Infrastructure Services Senior Manager Peter Stitt said. “Due to the extremely dry

conditions, the fuel seeped quite deeply into the road and surrounding soil which has required extensive excavation and removal of all contaminated material. “Around 7000 tonnes of material have been removed from the site, in line with environmental guidelines followed by back filling of the decontaminated site. All road repair costs will be covered by insurance,” he said. Final works are being carried out between 7am and 6pm, including installing the new road and seal.

OPINION, ANALYSIS, FEATURES, DEPTH.

Name change paints bad image for local artists ISSUE: THE ARTS By LYDIA PEDRANA LOCAL artists believe the government’s decision not to have a federal department dedicated to the Arts will have an impact on the entire community. As of February 1, the Department of Arts and Communications merged into the new Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications, which makes no mention of ‘Arts’ in the title. Well-known visual artist and president of the Creative Assembly, Jack Randell, is one of those disappointed by the restructure and believes that while creatives will continue to produce, this move will see the wider community miss out on the benefits that art offers. “My initial thought is that it’s an illegitimate move on behalf of any government agency to not acknowledge, or even under acknowledge, the contribution that the arts make to social coherence, community wellbeing and even right down to the productive bottom line,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “If we are neglected by any agency, it’s not necessarily to the detriment of creative practice – it can undermine it and push it sideways and all those sorts of things – but the big loser from this sort of policy strategy is the community at large; it loses social coherence, social resilience and emotional and spiritual wellbeing. They are what the arts do for us.” Dubbo based contemporary artist Kim V. Goldsmith described the departmental merge as a “massive, massive step back” and said it exposes the federal government’s undermining of the arts on an international level. “Having been overseas last year, I did a two month artist residency in Iceland and I was with artists from all over the world – Canada, the US, South America, Spain, Germany – and Australia is really lagging in terms of our profile internationally, in terms of respect for what we (do internationally), and people are paying attention to what our government actually does,” Ms Goldsmith said. “The bushfires put us on the international stage in a very, very big way and I’ve had communications from some of the artists that I spent time in that residency with who are just completely incredulous at where things are at the moment. “For that change to kick in, where we have now lost naming rights to our Federal Arts department, is just another blow.” Meanwhile, local musician Tim Hosking is less caught up in the name, rather focusing on whether the new, merged department will deliver the same level of funding

for the Arts as it did in its former iteration. “It’s the programs that matter, I think, not the department name. We’ve seen lots of changes in government departments over time and they don’t really mean

anything. What it does is what we have to judge it by, in my opinion,” he said. “In terms of the arts more generally, I guess we as participants in the local arts scene do see great value in governments supporting local culture, we see it as a key plank of liveability in the community, and while we can’t yet determine what the fallout will be from the change in department name at a Commonwealth level, we would be disappointed if it did mean less funding for cultural and artistic activities, particularly in regional areas like ours.” As the secretary of the newly established Songwriters and Original Musicians Association Dubbo (SOMAD), Mr Hosking feels the city’s arts community has some real momentum and believes governmental support on all levels would encourage it to flourish even further. On the other hand, Dubbo’s 2019 Woman of the Year and arts educator, Camilla Ward, sees the portfolio change as an opportunity for accountability and self-responsibility. “We can go ‘okay this is terri-

ble’, but be grateful too that we’ve got Council here in Dubbo that is putting the culture and our community first and foremost, and make them accountable. I think it’s up to us to keep reminding them (about the importance of

the arts),” she said. “You can be angry about it, but then it’s sort of like, ok, what can I do about it or what can we do about it? And if you want the arts to be prominent in your local area, well go and support it, talk about it, talk to your families about it, educate yourself on it.” But Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said that despite a new name, nothing will change in terms of the Coalition Government’s “strong commitment to the Arts”. “The dedicated and committed officials working on arts policy continue to have the same responsibilities and the same resources. They will continue to be accountable to the Minister for the Arts Paul Fletcher,” Mr Coulton said. “Likewise, there is no change in the funding of $749 million committed by the Coalition Government to the arts portfolio in 2019-20.” Mr Coulton also promised to continue to advocate for his constituents to ensure “we continue to leverage the arts sector in rural and regional areas”. „

VOLUNTEERING

Mixed reaction to forced service for youth idea By LYDIA PEDRANA

LOCAL opinions on Labor MP Mike Kelly’s suggestion that all school leavers undergo a compulsory year of civil service in disaster response are mixed. The controversial proposal from the backbencher, whose electorate covers the fire-ravaged South Coast, would see high school graduates do a 12-month stint in a Civil Defence Corps organisation which would encompass all existing volunteer disaster response services. The model would then see people undergo annual refresher courses until the age of 40. Neil Sturrock, an ex-captain and the current president of Dubbo Rescue Squad, said forcing people to volunteer would take away from what it means to be a volunteer. “Being a volunteer means you need to have heart. You can’t do volunteer work and you can’t put people in that situation unless they want to because not only do you have to turn up to the job, you also have to commit to the training. “While I acknowledge it would be great for any young person to give back to their community, the thing that’s going to drive that person to stay as a volunteer, because it does take a while to be trained up to standard, is their own personal attitude as to whether they want to do it and their commitment and motives,” Mr Sturrock told Dubbo Photo News. “We find that in the rescue squad, we get people who come in and, while we interview them and go through a process, it takes a good 12 months’ commitment to become a certified rescue operator. What we find is the people who don’t understand the commitment they are making to the com-

Asked about Mr Kelly’s proposed model for all school graduates to undertake a year of civil service, a Defence spokesperson said: “There is no Defence capability requirement to introduce a national service scheme. “Defence is focused on maintaining a well-trained and highly professional volunteer force as the most effective way of delivering on Australia’s Defence requirements.” Dubbo Photo News also asked readers for their opinion Mr Kelly’s mandatory civil service idea and again, opinions expressed through our Facebook feedback were mixed. Melanie Kaye pointed out that it is “not volunteering if it’s forced”, while Kylie Perkins said: “No, because you are really signing them up for a life they didn’t choose for President of Dubbo Rescue Squad Neil Sturrock believes forcing people to volunteer would take away from what it themselves, especially when you means to be a volunteer.

SENIORS WEEK

SENIORS IN THE SPOTLIGHT By LYDIA PEDRANA THE annual NSW Senior’s Festival is officially underway with everyone encouraged to celebrate the role that older citizens, or those over 60, play and the contributions they make in communities. Running until February 23, there are several free events scheduled for seniors to enjoy. In Dubbo, the Department of Communities & Justice is presenting a yoga and meditation workshop, a plant hanger how-to class and a senior’s crime prevention information session. Dubbo Regional Council is also holding its annual Senior’s Week Expo at the RSL on Tuesday morning, February 18, which will focus on community safety and have information stands from a range of local senior-focused agencies and organisations. “We have more than

9000 seniors living in Dubbo, Wellington, Geurie and other communities in our region and the NSW Seniors’ Festival every year brings so many wonderful people together,” said Dubbo Regional Council’s community development officer Christy White. “Festival events in our region always put smiles on the faces of our seniors as they share stories and friendships, and the expo is a great event to assist residents and connect them with invaluable community networks.” Jan Miller, treasurer of the Walter T. Grant Memorial Senior Citizens Club in Dubbo, said having a Senior’s Festival helps show the elderly the respect and recognition they deserve. For the first day of Senior’s Festival yesterday, it was business as usual for the club which meets each Wednesday at the Neighbourhood Centre between 9am and 2pm.

Together, they play cards and Rummikub in the morning, followed by bingo after lunch. It costs just $5 for the day and that includes morning tea and a cuppa, but lunch is BYO. “I think it’s very important because it gets them out of the house, that’s what my motto is,” Mrs Miller told Dubbo Photo News. “It’s just lovely to see the oldies and have a talk and have a get together for the day.” But it’s not exclusive to seniors. Mrs Miller said they are looking for new members of any age to join them of a Wednesday. “Please come, you don’t have to do what we do, if you just want to come and sit and talk, you are quite welcome to, if you want to bring a book or bring embroidery or knitting, it’s just to get you out of the house.”

NEWS EXTRA LETTERS & FEEDBACK

OPINION & ANALYSIS THE TOONS’ VIEWS

No one seems willing to take responsibility for water shortage The Editor, Dubbo Regional Council has not given any indication that it will lobby the NSW Government or its agencies to introduce policies to ensure the water security for the towns below Burrendong Dam. The mayor of Dubbo Regional Council Ben Shields is on record saying “council does not control Burrendong Dam”, and he finds the assertion “that we (council) should have been monitoring Burrendong Dam’s levels peculiar”. My argument is, why is it peculiar that we should expect our council to keep an eye on our water supplies. WaterNSW has left downstream residents high and dry this summer and the council wants to wash its hands of the matter and abrogate all responsibility for the community’s water security. The mayor’s remark comes after the October 2019 council meeting where he and the other elected councillors voted to impose the harshest water restrictions on Dubbo Regional Council residents in our entire history. These water restrictions are unprecedented, and those imposing the restrictions argue the drought is unprecedented and therefore drastic measures are required. I understand the councillors’ reservations in the fact they don’t know how much is in the aquifers and they want to ensure we don’t run out of ground water. It appears, from what I’ve been able to ascertain, that nobody knows exactly how much water is in the aquifers or how many people are drawing from it and how much they are drawing. There are a number of licensed

holders of bores and there are a lot of unlicensed bores. People are extracting water all over the place, and no one really knows where and when and how much. It appears the councillors took a punt and voted in the extreme. WaterNSW (should take responsibility) for this situation. Burrendong Dam was chock-a-block three years ago with enough water to last the downstream communities forever. They gave it all to the cotton growers and environmentalists and left the towns at the mercy of the Gods. WaterNSW would argue the drought is unprecedented, and historically there have always been inflows into Burrendong to cover their releases. There are so many things wrong with what has happened with the imposition of water restrictions on the lower Burrendong towns this summer. It should never have happened at all. WaterNSW stuffed up by letting all the water out. The very future of the lower Burrendong towns is at stake here, because no one at any level of government is willing to take responsibility and no one has come out and said they’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again. There should be a policy that restricts the release of irrigation or environmental flows from Burrendong once it reaches a third of its capacity. The dam should always be kept at 33 per cent to ensure the towns never run dry, and recreational users always have a good body of water for their activities. The politicians talk the big talk about growing Dubbo to a city of 60,000 people over the next 20 years, but the experience of this

The cost of crime when they think they can get away with it

❚ OPINION

THERE’S still plenty of crooks doing the opportunity crime around south and central Dubbo, with reports of homes and cars being broken into across these suburbs. The problem with volume crime is that these canny crims only do it when they know there are no police around, and they think they can get away with it – and often there’s nowhere near enough evidence for the police to track them down, or prove in court they did it anyway. The best thing is to have your house as secure as possible and if you do get broken into, have a quality CCTV surveillance system so at least there is some evidentiary record so that police have a starting point. It annoys the hell out of me that people have to go to the trouble and expense of securing their homes like Fort Knox, but there are just too many people out there who, for whatever rea-

past summer has revealed their lack of genuine commitment to us. It’s all a case of ‘bread and circuses’ with these people. They make grandiose announcements about big spending projects but neglect the essentials. Steve Hodder, Dubbo

Parcel puzzle solved DUBBO PHOTO NEWS published a call-out from reader John Snare last month, looking for help tracking down the rightful owner of a parcel that was incorrectly delivered to his home in Dubbo.

The parcel was addressed to a “J Ratcliffe” but no such person lives at his house. John said at the time that he believed the parcel had been sent from “somewhere in England”. We’re pleased to report that, thanks to our readers, we have been able to track down the rightful owner. It turns out the recipient was someone who had recently moved into the same street, but the street number on the address label was wrong. “The sender is from Kent, England,” John told us. “Thank you for all your help in solving the problem, I’m sure the recipient will now appreciate the present.”

Royal Freemasons donate $60,000 to CanAssist DUBBO CanAssist members (from left to right) Des Sandbert, Prue Thompson and Melva Blake receive a generous donation from Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution (RFBI) board member Douglas James last week. Mr James visited Dubbo to present the cheque to the Dubbo and District branch of CanAssist. He stressed the funds were

Thumbs Down to TV stations that play completely inappropriate ads while kids are watching. Our kids were watching Ash Barty play on a weekend afternoon, and being inspired by her great match, when they were confronted by ads for TV shows meant for grown-ups. Our youngest covered her eyes in shock and we then had to explain to her what she’d seen, hoping it wouldn’t give her nightmares.

Thumbs Up to the young boy aged about 10 to 11 accompanied by a lady (assumed his mother) who came to my assistance near the post box in Cobra St near the take away early last week. I got out of my car and was hobbling towards the post box with some letters in my hand when the lad approached me and asked if he could help me. I said I was just going to post the letters and I gave them to him and he smiled and returned to the box and posted them. I thanked him and waved to the lady with him and thanked them. When you are 86 years old and suffering from back problems and walking is difficult, these acts of kindness are greatly appreciated.

What a difference a week makes

Young wombat gets TLC from zoo after bushfire burns

Transformation: Regular contributor Peter Woodward took these two com-parative photos, commenting: “Isn’t it amazing what a week of rain can do.” Peter explains that this is basically the same scene from Rosedale Rd looking west, one on Sunday and the other the previous Sunday before the dust storm blew in.

Metal trucks: This photo didn’t quite qualify for Dubbo Photo News’ Holiday Smiles competition which wrapped up last week, but it sure shows an amazing piece of artwork spotted by some Dubbo people holidaying in Hobart last month. These life-size “trucks” have been made from wrought iron. It’s one of the exhibitions at Hobart’s MONA.

Yep, times have changed: The same holidaying family spotted this sign that the times have passed. The sign is now a museum piece, from the days when smoking was a thing.

The rain effect: It’s amazing to watch Nature reacting to a week of rain. These two photos show two ant hills built overnight, before Tuesday’s storm in Dubbo; and, below, fungi that cropped up, seemingly in just as little time, in a local suburban street.

This juvenile wombat in on the road to recovery after it was taken to the Wildlife Hospital at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in early January with a significant burn to its back from a bushfire in the Mudgee region. “The wombat has undergone treatment and is now doing well and with a wildlife carer to continue the hand raising and rehabilitation process until he is ready to be released back into the wild,” a zoo spokesperson said this week. The wombat is pictured with a visiting San Diego Zoo vet nurse who has been helping with its care.

PETS on PARADE

Winnie Shall we start with the elephant in the room? Where’s your tail? I lost it as a result of an incident with a moving vehicle. It was nearly the death of me, but you know... cats, nine lives and all that. What’s the story? After I made it home from the affray, I still had a tail although it was a little tattered. The family debated whether or not to put me down, right in front of me, mind you. Now, that left a scar. Eventually, they took me to the vet who said I had a broken pelvis and it’d be easy to fix. Gosh, that’s nasty. Just put me in a cage for a few weeks, he said. Well, my leg got in-

fected. My tail got infected. Then he said, “we’ll have to take the tail off”. Long story short, that stump I’ve got back there is worth over $1000. My nickname is Inheritance. Sounds like your owner went through a bit of pain too. How old are, if you don’t mind me asking? 11. Will you be going to the Seniors Festival this week? Sorry, I’m not making the connection. You’re 77 in human years which technically makes you a senior. Well I’ve got a question for you: You know how cats wag their tails vigorously when annoyed? Sure.

I’m doing it right now. Oh? I don’t... see... oh, right. They say it’s why I bite. I let my fangs to do the talking. Oh... nice kitty... So, I hear you love handbags? I don’t discriminate actually. Any sort of bag is my kind of bag. And, I’m told you’re very friendly? What do you think? INTERVIEW AND PHOTO BY YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

Dubbo Private Hospital proudly keeping it local DUBBO Private Hospital has proudly provided choice in private health care services to the local community since 1994. With better access to a range of medical, surgical and rehabilitation health care services, you can stay local for your surgery and recovery, with the support of your loved ones nearby. “It’s all about keeping it local and caring for our community. Private services enable more choice and allow people to access necessary, non-urgent treatment and care more rapidly,” Director of Clinical Services Gail Priest said. “There can sometimes be the misconception that you have to travel to Sydney to

access the best in medical care. At Dubbo Private Hospital we proudly provide clinical excellence for our patients, with both local and metropolitan specialists conveniently located onsite. “Not only can locals access our experienced medical and surgical teams, they can also transition into rehabilitation care locally through our purpose-built rehabilitation unit. It’s very important that from surgery to recovery, patients stay close to loved ones.” Dubbo Private Hospital provides inpatient, day patient and outpatient care for privately insured and self-funded patients.

Dubbo Private Hospital features a purpose-built rehabilitation unit allowing patients to stay near loved ones during ongoing therapy.

Plan for the future while enjoying life right now RETIRED couple Les and Fay Brookfield have lived at RSL LifeCare Horizons Village for five years and they’re happy they made the move to town when they did. “I knew I had to change my lifestyle and that was it. I worked all my life and I enjoyed working. I was pretty good at it, and I didn’t want anyone to be better than me (in my work) and I always said I’d never be lazy, but I’ve since found out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks,” Les said. “You can do what you want to here, but they do the gardens, take the garbage away, mow the lawns. There’s a men’s shed you can do things in, woodwork and that sort of thing, and then there’s the social side of it,” he said. “If you’re going to

down-size or you’ve got a big house and the family’s gone, think of these places. You might say you can ‘do this, or you can do that’, but maybe in five years’ time you can’t.” Fay agrees, that living out of town began to inhibit activities they enjoyed doing together. “We like going to the theatre. When we were out of town, I refused for us to travel at night. The highway’s too busy, there’s kangaroos and the traffic was horrendous, so we had to stop in town if we wanted to go to something. Now we can go out and come home,” she said

Dubbo City Crematorium

Owed and operated by the Evans Family of Dubbo continuously for more then 30 years. Whilst others have come and gone, we have continued to support our local community throughout the years, hence our motto “Our family caring for your family” - Christopher Evans SERVICES

Few people realise the extent of a funeral director’s role. It begins when we are first called, and ends only when we are satisfied the ceremony is as perfect and complete as we can make it, and the wishes of the family are fully met. Approximately forty hours of time is taken in order to professionally arrange and conduct every funeral. Even after the funeral service has occured we continue to care for families by providing memorials for loved ones and guiding them through the grief process over the coming weeks, months and years. We pride ourselves on our ongoing commitment to care for grieving families & individuals as though they were members of our own family.

• • • •

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Registration of death with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Consulting with clergy or celebrant. Advice on wording and placement of press notices. Collection of medical certificates and their dispatch to appropriate authorities. Use of our private family viewing facilities. Supply of hearse and other funeral vehicles. Supply of a car to transport the family. Liaising with florists. Collection and return of floral tribute cards. Organisation of music and/or musician of your choice. Memorial attendance books for friends and family to sign. Preparation of the deceased for viewing. Embalming by qualified personnel (if required). Provision of mourning stationery. Recording of services (if required). Referral to grief support (if required). Provision of after funeral refreshments/catering if requested.

Pre-Paid Funeral Bonds:

We plan ahead for just about every other financial possibility in our lives to ensure that we protect ourselves and those we care about. We take out life insurance and health insurance. We have superannuation. We plan for retirement, and most of us have made a will. Pre-planning a funeral falls into the same basket - it just makes good financial sense.

What are the advantages of Pre-Paid? •

The following is a general list of services we are able to provide: •

37

Prompt and personal attention at any time, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Transfer of the deceased from the place of death to the funeral home. Personal consultation with the family about funeral arrangements and details for the service. Liaising with the cemetery or crematorium of your choice. All necessary arrangements with the church, chapel or venue of your choice.

Your family is protected from the distress of making difficult decisions at an emotional time. • Your family will be relieved from any financial burden towards the funeral costs*. • It makes good financial sense. By making all of your choices now, you can fix the price of your funeral at today’s cost. • You can ensure that your exact wishes for your funeral are made known to the funeral director & your family. • You may be able to maximise your pension entitlement. Any money paid into the plan is not subject to the income or assets test or the deemed earning rules (according to current legislation) to a set limit of $13,250. • Pre-paying means real peace of mind for you and your family. Contact us to see what is included in our Pre-paid Funeral Plans.

A Tradition of Caring

Let’s talk about pre-paid Choices to personalise funerals your funeral needs W Larcombe and Son Funerals recommends prepaid funerals to guarantee that no matter when you die, you will be given the funeral you planned. “Prepaid funerals are different from funeral bonds. Let’s say you arrange a funeral that costs $5850, and that’s all you can put towards it. That’s all you’ll ever have to pay, even if you don’t die for another 20 years; we must honour what you paid for at the time of purchase,” W Larcombe and Son Funerals owner Barbara Carter said. Cemetery fees are not included as these change frequently. Contact W Larcombe and Son Funerals for more information or visit their stand at the Seniors Expo. W Larcombe and Son Funerals owner Barbara Carter. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

SHAKESPEARE Funerals is the longest-serving funeral home in Dubbo, renowned for providing a professional and very dignified funeral service for the deceased and their families. Burials, cremations, monuments, prepaids, graveside services, bereavement care and support are just some of the many services available to suit your needs. Shakespeare Funerals manager Laura Carter recommends prepaid funerals as a cost-effective way to plan a funeral to suit your budget. A prepaid funeral plan also fixes costs in today’s dollars, even if your funeral is not for many years to come. However, some exclusions may apply such as cemetery costs. The benefit of prepaying is similar to preplanning as it relieves your family of worry, stress and uncertainty during a difficult time. For more information contact Shakespeare Funerals or visit their stand at the Seniors Expo.

Seniors Festival Oaktree switch to solar gives UHVLGHQWVDOOWKHEHQHåWV

FOR many retirees soaring energy costs are a major concern but seniors looking to relocate to Oak Tree Retirement Villages are set to save as the Group commits to flick the switch on solar and allocate 100 percent of the benefits back to the residents. Leading provider of Retirement Villages, The Oak Tree Group, will provide on all new developments a 4KW solar panel system and battery storage unit which has the potential to deliver 6KW hours of energy for resident’s individual use. “Our commitment to solar means you can now think of our villages as self-sufficient solar farms, this means all energy produced is utilised within the village community, says Managing Director of The Oak Tree Group, Mr Mark Bindon. “With seniors now more focussed on their income in retirement than ever, we are certain this is a step in the right direction” For more information, please call 1300 367 155 or visit www.oaktreegroup.com.au

Tears and cheers at surprise farewell for PCYC’s Mark Nuttall Photos by DUBBO PHOTO NEWS WHEN it comes to keeping a secret, Dubbo is more country town than city, but when Mark Nuttall walked through the doors of the PCYC’s indoor basketball courts on Friday evening, he clearly had no inkling of the preparations that had been going on in secret for weeks leading up to a celebration in his honour. The evening was organised to mark the occasion of Mark’s retirement from 15 years of service to the community through his position as manager of the Dubbo PCYC (Police Citizens Youth Clubs). EMCEE for the evening, Mark Horton, remarked that the greatest surprise about the night was that it remained a surprise, but there was

no doubting the guest of honour’s amazement when he saw and heard the 100-strong crowd. PEOPLE from across all the different and diverse sectors of the community with which Mark has worked over the years came together with his family and friends to express their sincere admiration for all he’s done during his time as PCYC manager. As our photos show, there were a number of presentations, an on-stage “interview” with Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders, a “Bollywood” dance display and an extraordinary cake resembling the iconic PCYC food van. FROM everyone here at Dubbo Photo News, and on behalf of the wider community, thanks and good luck, Mark Nuttall.

Dubbo MP Dugald Saunders conducted an on-stage “interview” with the guest of honour, which was at times deeply moving and at other times hilarious.

Mark Nuttall’s priceless reaction on realising the crowd gathered in the PCYC’s basketball court was there to honour him. The Far West Academy of Sport and local not-for-profit organisation Lucy for Humanity Inc, presented Mark with a special jumper in honour of his “Fifteen years’ service to community youth 2005-2020”.

Mark’s wife Sue, along with their children and grandchildren, were there to share the moment of his surprise.

Ellen Stanmore, who was involved with the PCYC when Mark first started as manager, with fellow club stalwarts Allan Backhouse and Bev Ewin.

Inspector Dan Skelly presented Mark with a special award of recognition on behalf of NSW Police and the local Dubbo station and officers with whom he has worked closely over his 15 years as PCYC manager.

Mark Nuttall was joined on stage by “Riverbank” Frank Doolan, who acknowledged Wiradjuri land and elders, and shared some personal memories of his association with the PCYC.

PCYC NSW Acting CEO Karen Hope shared the admiration and best wishes of the organisation in commending Mark for his outstanding dedication to the PCYC and the community.

Mark’s family gathered to help his friends, colleagues and fellow community members celebrate his remarkable commitment and dedication to the city’s youth over the past 15 years.

ODDS, ENDS & INSPIRATION STRANGE BUT TRUE z It was American humourist Evan Esar who came up the following definition: “Statistics: The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions.” z The Emperor Charlemagne, who conquered much of Western and Central Europe during the first century, had an unusual relationship with his daughters. He refused to allow them to get married, but he evidently had no objections to their forming, shall we say, less formal relationships. He doted on his illegitimate grandchildren and even gave money and gifts to their fathers. z If you look at a list of the names of the 50 states of the USA, you’ll find every letter of the alphabet except Q.

z You won’t be surprised to learn that the most dangerous device that is common in the modern world is the automobile. You might be surprised to learn, though, that the second most dangerous is the stair step. z You’ve probably never heard of Countess Rosa Branicka, but she accomplished an amazing feat. In the mid-19th century, at the age of 63, the wealthy Polish noblewoman became ill. The diagnosis given by experts in Germany was breast cancer, and immediate surgery was recommended. For reasons unknown, the countess declined the treatment, then set about purchasing her own surgical instruments. Once all the tools were assembled, Branicka checked into a hotel in Paris and removed the tumour herself. Reports indicate that she healed well and quickly, and

lived to the ripe old age of 82. z The only chemical element that is not a solid at a temperature of absolute zero is helium; it remains a liquid. z For reasons unknown, a law in New Jersey, USA forbids the sale of cabbage on Sunday.

NOW HERE’S A TIP z A squirt of shaving cream can help release latex paint specks on your hands from using a roller brush. Just rub over hands and rinse. z Baked apples (or stuffed peppers) will stay perfectly upright if you set them into the wells of a muffin tin. z Make your own bath oil by mixing a couple of drops of your favourite perfume with a bit of baby oil. Just rub on post-bath or add to

your bathwater. z “Recently I cooked a big batch of broccoli in the afternoon. The house had that cabbage smell. I don’t like air fresheners because the strong smell gives me a headache. My neighbour told me to boil a couple of cups of vinegar and let it simmer for 10 minutes. At first, the vinegar smell replaced the cabbage smell, but then it totally disappeared and all the smells were gone too.” – E.Y. z “Use your vegetable peeler to make strips of butter if it’s cold and you need to spread it on bread. The strips’ large amount of surface area help the butter to soften quickly, making it easy to spread.” – M.M. z “Get king-size pillowcases from a bargain store to cover a nappy changing pad. They are the right size and cheap!” – D.L.

CYCLING

New venue gets thumbs up from cyclists By GEOFF MANN DUBBO Cycle Club president Matt Gilbert was a happy man as competitors rolled onto the new complex in north Dubbo on Saturday morning. “This is the beginning of the next chapter in a magnificent storybook of wheels,” Matt smiled on Saturday morning as the NSW Junior Championships and Dubbo Open were about to commence. “We’ve been wheeling around Victoria Park for over 100 years so there has been plenty of emotion about the move to a new venue. But look at this! It is spectacular and the compliments have been flowing since early this morning,” he beamed. In fact, the bouquets continued to flow as officials and club members worked together to ensure as full a program as possible in spite of threatening skies. One of Australia’s most celebrated competitors was on hand to witness the first official races on the track. Michelle Ferris has racked up an amazing list of hon-

ours. The 500 metres Silver Medallist at the Sydney Olympics has a cabinet full of medals and trophies won at World Titles, Commonwealth Games and 16 Australian titles. “Michelle is a champion in every sense of the word. It certainly was our honour to have such a celebrated talent with us for the opening carnival at our new facility. She made it a very special day,” a jubilant Club President proclaimed. Matt was gracious in his words for everyone who had worked so diligently. “Thank you to all NSW and Dubbo Commissaires, Cycling NSW CEO Graham Seers, timekeepers, holders, judges, starters, volunteers, race callers, setup crews, Stand/display from Tim Dawson, pushers, mark checkers, canteen staff and preparers of the delicious food for your hard work during the NSW State Titles and Open Carnival,” he added. “Your hard work keeping riders safe and delivering the carnival under difficult circumstances is greatly appreciated.”

RUGBY LEAGUE

CYMS begin with a bang! By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL DUBBO CYMS began their third NSWRL Challenge Cup campaign with an impressive 50-6 win over Moree Boomerangs at Apex Oval on Saturday. Several of last year’s Under 18s impressed in the top grade, pulling on their Fishies’ jerseys alongside some toughened regulars and a host of new faces. Coach Jarryn Powyer watched from the sidelines as the team conceded an early try but then ran in 50 unanswered points. CYMS won the inaugural Cup in 2018 against Guildford Owls but were no match for the metropolitan team in last year’s rematch. CYMS could well face Newcastle heavyweights Wests in their next match.

KARTING

Southern Stars drive to conditions By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL DUBBO Kart Club hosted the first round of this year’s Southern Stars on a wet track at Lincoln County International Raceway last weekend. Undeterred by the weather, participants young and old followed a well-known mantra – drive to the conditions. In fact, late last week the club shared the wisdom from an article originally produced in the Red Bull Racing magazine.

“Driving quickly in the wet is a skill only very few people are good at and where the best drivers can shine – classic examples from Formula One being Ayrton Senna at Monaco 1984, Michael Schumacher at Jerez 1997 or, more recently, Max Verstappen at Brazil 2016. “The techniques needed to drive fast in the wet are very different to the dry, so here are our seven top tips to help you be a demon wet weather specialist in a kart – and bear in mind that most of these will

apply for car racing as well.  Find the optimal line  Steer positively  Use the throttle to help turn the car  Avoid wheelspin  Brake ‘off the rubber’  Use the kerbs  Be patient “Mastering a track in the wet is one of the most satisfying things a racing driver can do, and following these seven tips will help you on your way to being unbeatable in tricky conditions,” Red Bull Racing

reported. It’s clear from Mel’s photos that some followed the guidelines and stayed on course; some may have chosen a less conservative route and the results are obvious! One of the highlights of the first round was a night on the track, powering away under the new light towers. Congratulations Dubbo Kart Club on a sensational weekend, volunteers working against the odds to ensure another safe, exciting and successful event.

TRIATHLON

DRAGON BOATS

Triathlon became biathlon Dragons in Blue for National titles because of the weather By GEOFF MANN

Tim Cullen-Ward has made the transition from rugby to triathlon. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

DUBBO hosted their annual round of Central West Teams events last weekend. The consistent rain on Sunday morning deemed it too dangerous to go out on the bikes so competitors faced a swim and run event. In the main division, it became a run, swim, run! Club President Jason Dearmer was impressed with the spirit shown by all participants. He acknowledged the difficulties the increased flow in a brown Macquarie River created, but said that everyone was smiling because of its cause. Cowra and Orange clubs claimed the major placings but Jason acknowledged that some with strong cycling legs had been

disadvantaged by the amended format. Results: Interclub Sunday, February 9  Mini Tri – 125 swim/ 1 km run: 1 Ryan Hudson (Cowra), 2 Maddex Gosper (Orange), 3 Matilda Medlyn (Dubbo); 4 Baden Lyons (Dubbo)  Super – 125 metre swim/ 2km run: 1 Rory Sullivan (Cowra), 2 Dave Rich (Dubbo), 3 Michelle Peek (Dubbo), 4 Ian Hawkins (Dubbo), 5 Nick Hubbard and Simone Grace (Dubbo)  Sprint – 2km run/500m swim/2km run (71 competitors): 1 Jack Bilton (Orange), 2 Tim Tudor (O), 3 Campbell Wall (O), 4 Abbey Dean (O), 5 Jessie Dean (O), 6 Ben Orford (Dubbo), Tim Miller (Bathurst), Tom Hanrahan (B), Riley Taylor (M), Sophie Martin (O)

By GEOFF MANN DUBBO will have a strong representation at the 2020 Australian Dragon Boat Championships in April following recent selection trials. Outback Dragons crew members Wayne Dixon, Deb Garden, Sue Miles, Andy Taylor, Nigel Roberts, Rhonda Bettseriod, Dave Quigley and Hugh Irving have worked hard in the long hot summer, impressing selectors with their form in regattas and at intensive training sessions at the Institute of Sport and on Lake Burley Griffin. They will be heralded by local Drummer Rhonda Lang (Dubbo) in the State v State challenge at the Sydney International Regatta Centre in Penrith on Saturday, April 11. Experienced campaigner Rhonda Betts

is the NSW Manager. She is excited by the prospects, citing the strength of Dragon Boat racing west of the Great Divide. “The Western Squad is made up of paddlers from Bathurst, Orange, Dubbo, Parkes, Forbes and Wagga. It is a huge chunk of NSW.” Unfortunately this ‘huge chunk’ has been in severe drought conditions, which Rhonda says made large bodies of water on which to train very scarce. “We are currently training on beautiful Lake Forbes, with the rest of our training regime being off-water fitness. It is worth mentioning that some members of the squad travel up to 700km round trip for a training session. That is dedication!” Rhonda praised the coaches “who have really raised the bar this year”.

“We are confident of bringing home some bling from the Nationals,” she laughed. The next regatta as a squad is in Canberra on February 22 with a series of 500m races planned as a warm up for Australian titles. The team:  Coach – Louise Linke (Bathurst)  Assistant Coach – Robbie Beet (Orange)  Sweeps – Deb Clarke (Bathurst) and Phil Lambert (Orange)  Squad members:  Parkes – Maggi Barnard, Linda Snyman  Forbes – Warren Edwards, Neil May, Chris Favelle, Claire Davis, Nicole Williams  Wagga – Sandy Doyle  Bathurst – Vicki Gransden, Laurence Outim, Tony Truscott  Orange – Glen McCallum, Robbie Beet, Deb Ball, Kerry Madden, Estella Ferri

WATER POLO

Dubbo players succeed at NSW country water polo championships Story & photos contributed by CATH OSBORNE DUBBO juniors Declan McGregor, Abby Osborne, Sean McCabe, Eva Osborne and Hamish Wood did Dubbo Water Polo and themselves proud over the weekend of February 8-9. All five players put in fantastic performances in the pool and displayed sportsmanship, friendship and character on pool deck. These five juniors travelled to Wagga and joined teams that many of them had never met previously. Declan McGregor (12 years) played for the Wyong under-14 boys’ team. Declan’s agility, skill and knowledge of the game for his age was a standout not only in his team but across all the under-14 boys’ teams. Declan produced some outstanding play, producing numerous goals for Wyong over the weekend. One of the highlights was when Declan put his hand up to be goalie for a quarter in one game, as the Wyong boys lacked a dedicated goalie player – this willingness is a credit to Declan’s character and all-round skills. Not only did he manage to stop many goals over the quarter, his keen eye and attention to the clock resulted in Declan positioning himself in the final seconds to shoot and convert a goal of his own from half way down the pool. Declan displayed his accuracy, strength and understanding that water polo is a thinking game. Declan, like Abby, Eva and Sean, was playing bottom age for

his division and this means another year playing is the same division and exciting opportunities for these juniors over the coming 18 months. Abby Osborne played for Tamworth and came home with a Bronze medal. Abby scored three goals in a 6-2 win over the Southern Highlands under-14 girls bronze medal play off. Abby played with the same Tamworth team recently in Brisbane at the Australian Youth Championships

and is making herself comfortable with her second claim club. The opportunities to play more water polo over the past few months has allowed Abby to improve her skills and read the play well, resulting a many turnovers and goals for Tamworth over the weekend. Eva Osborne joined South-

ern Highlands under-16s for the weekend. Eva was provided a lot of water time over the weekend as part of the starting 7 for Southern Highlands. Eva showed excellent reading of the game every time she entered the water. Eva’s driving and continual movement in the pool led to several goals and created valuable attacking oppor-

tunities for Southern Highlands. The Southern Highlands team gifted Eva a water polo ball they had all signed as a thank-you for her efforts contributions over the weekend. Sean and Hamish joined a Barbarians team, a mix of young men from a range of NSW clubs. This was a fantastic opportunity for the Dubbo players to be part of a strong team that were undefeated on Day 1 and played off in the finals to come home with silver medals and a heightened passion for this wonderful game. Sean and Hamish had the speed in the water to find space and contribute in many ways to the Barbarians successes. Hamish improved his wrestling techniques in centre-back position to hold out some very experienced centre forwards. Sean positioned himself well and was able to feed the ball into the Barbarians centre-forward who has a skill of scoring whilst his head was underwater. Well done to all five players. Your maturity to join new teams, read the play and give 100 per cent to every opportunity showed wonderful character and sportsmanship. You all went to Wagga to develop and learn more and you certainly all did this. A special thanks to Sam McGregor who watched each of these players all weekend, shared his amazing knowledge and understanding of the game, provided one-on-one tips and coaching to all five juniors after every game, encouraged and reassured. It was a weekend that these five will cherish and grow from in so many ways.

CYCLING

Simone really ground them into the road! By GEOFF MANN SIMONE Grounds has achieved enormous respect in the cycling world over the past several years. On Saturday night her mantle as the leading road rider in NSW was recognised during the Dubbo Open Carnival. Simone is lovingly known as the “Ginger Ninja” for her ferocious defence of the road which she considers her own. The toughest competitor has turned hard training into incredible success. She attributes her suc-

cess to the coaching from one of Australia’s best credentialled mentors. “Gus Dawson has an amazing ability to recognise your strengths, identify areas for improvement and strategies for becoming the best cyclist you can be,” Simone said. Gus has overseen the development of nearly 150 National title holders and has an able apprentice in Western Region Academy coach Vaughn Eather. Simone was also quick to acknowledge the support of the entire Dubbo Cycling family, with special words for Darrell

Wheeler. “Darrell has so much knowledge about cycling. When you ride with him in training or sit down before events, his wisdom oozes out. He makes you feel strong and confident. Words cannot express my gratitude for the role he has played in my successes,” a humble and appreciative Simone smiled. Dubbo Club President Matt Gilbert summed up the feeling of the entire community. “Thank you for all your hard work and well done on all your amazing successes!”

Congratulations to Simone Grounds: 2019 Elite Roadwoman of the Year, Masters Roadwoman of the Year, and Masters Women’s 3 Cyclist of the Year.
