A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH

We’re here for you, continuing to publish your local paper DUBBO Photo News is open for business, and in the entire history of this newspaper, never have we been more needed by the local community. Businesses are hurting and jobs are being lost – we’re here to do what we can to assist those small businesses and sole traders to generate traffic through their doors and keep our community whole. If your business is quiet, that means there’s never been a better time to advertise your goods and services and our staff will help you there.

Some places where our readers normally pick up Dubbo Photo News may be closed in the coming weeks, so we will be doing all we can to make sure our papers are well stocked in the places that are open. If you have trouble picking up a copy, call our office on 6885 4433, or read the full digital edition online at www.dubbophotonews. com.au.

By JOHN RYAN Molly Croft’s mum Ange has always been a big believer that education is key and now, more than ever, she needs the community to be educated. She feels that for many locals, the threat of the Coronavirus is something distant that happens to old people in China or Italy. Mrs Croft is concerned that far too many people aren’t taking the threat seriously. In her household, social distancing is literally a matter of life and death, with 13-year-old Molly (pictured at home this week with ‘Peter Rabbit’) struggling with immune deficiencies after years of fighting cancer.

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE Confirmed COVID-19 cases here are a ‘wake-up call’

By THE DPN REPORTING TEAM LOCAL political leaders are urging every single person in the Dubbo region to take social distancing much more seriously. Following the news of three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Dubbo electorate, first revealed by Dubbo Photo News online on Tuesday, Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders is urging the community to get serious about protecting yourself and others. Mr Saunders reminded people that the virus does not discriminate, and it is everyone’s responsi-

bility to do the right thing to help ‘flatten the curve’. “It seems to have taken a long time for people to be getting over the ‘she’ll be right mate’ type of attitude,” Mr Saunders told Dubbo Photo News. There’s been a lot of concern about what the future looks like – the very simple message is that we are all part of the solution, he said. “So it’s simply not good enough anymore to say ‘somebody else will fix it’ – we need to all together be part of the solution.” Off the back of the confirmed local COVID-19 cases, Mr Saunders

pleaded with his electorate not to panic or engage in anti-social behaviour, but rather consider the news as a wake-up call. “It’s a reality check for everyone who maybe has been thinking it is unlikely to get here.” Meanwhile, writing in today’s Dubbo Photo News, Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton is also urging everyone to take the pandemic recommendations seriously. “We want to minimise and slow the spread, especially to support those most vulnerable to this illness in our communities,” he said. “But in order for this to happen,

we need to keep following the advice of health authorities, and take very seriously the need to practise excellent hygiene, social distancing and self-isolation.” Mr Coulton believes regional Australians should be showing the way for the rest of the nation. “As regional Australians, we have a real opportunity here to set an example for our city counterparts, to slow the spread of this virus. The decisions we make today will determine both our short and long-term futures,” he writes.

IN BRIEF

CORONAVIRUS IMPACT

Pharmacists to enforce limits to dispensing PHARMACISTS are enforcing Federal Government direction on the dispensing of prescription and over-the-counter products to one month’s supply to address the issue of people stockpiling medicines due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The limits apply to particular classes of medicines for which unavailability would result in significant health impacts for patients, should treatment be interrupted or delayed. PSA National President Associate Professor Chris Freeman said limiting the dispensing of prescription and over-the-counter products to one month’s supply was necessary to address the issue of people stockpiling medicines due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Dispensing of multiple repeats is only permitted for valid Regulation 49 prescriptions, which must only be written by prescribers when hardship provisions apply.

Men’s Shed shuts the gate... for now By JOHN RYAN FOR years Men’s Sheds across Australia have been gathering places where blokes, mostly retired, have been able to share their stories and create bonds of fellowship while performing community work. Dubbo’s Men’s Shed published a book a few years ago profiling a number of members’ lives (“A Shed Load of Stories�) which focussed on how so many of them had hit the wall after finishing up at their careers, with many claiming the shed was a literal life-saver that pulled them through their bouts with the Black Dog. Now the shed is locked up, yet another unseen victim of the Coronavirus pandemic sweeping much of the world, according to the Dubbo Shed president Kevin Sinclair. “Last Saturday we took our first step with a committee meeting and we followed that with a meeting with members and we’re trying to keep up with the Health Department requirements of keeping one person every four square metres,� Mr Sinclair told Dubbo Photo News. “It’s a bit hard to play cards sitting that far apart. “Council owns the buildings and, in discussions, we’ve been advised it would be a good idea to close the shed at least in the short term,� he said. “We’ll play it by ear and be guided by the health regulations.�

Mr Sinclair said the fact coronavirus placed the elderly at risk was of great concern to the Shed’s committee and members, with most blokes well past retirement age, and many who’ve suffered various health challenges over the years. “Because of the age of our members we are in the high-risk bracket and it’s very difficult to not go

along with those health recommendations,� he said. “The Shed is a lifesaver for many of the boys – and their wives who get the benefit as well as the men – so it’s not great to be losing social contact. “That’s the big concern for a lot of the boys that come here, it’s a decision you don’t want to have to make.�

Kev Sinclair struggles with the digital era but members were talking about ways to bring as many as possible into the fold. “We’ve got a chap here who teaches an IT course and he can help out with some of the things any of the members might want to know about how to use social media to stay in constant touch,� Mr Sinclair said.

CORONAVIRUS ALERT

Don’t panic, but keep your distance: Dubbo MP tifying people in certain regions because the possibility of angry confrontations is very real,” he said.

By LYDIA PEDRANA FOLLOWING the news of three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Dubbo electorate which was first revealed by Dubbo Photo News online on Tuesday, Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders is urging the community to take social distancing seriously. Mr Saunders reminded people that the virus does not discriminate, and it is everyone’s responsibility to do the right thing to help ‘flatten the curve’. “I think in general terms most people are now making some sort of an effort to be part of the solution, not part of the problem with what we are dealing with, but it seems to have taken a long time for people to be getting over the ‘she’ll be right mate’ type of attitude,” Mr Saunders told Dubbo Photo News. “There’s been a lot of concern about what the future looks like and I guess the very simple message that I would like people to be aware of is that we are all part of the solution, so it’s simply not good enough anymore to say ‘somebody else will fix it’, we need to all together be part of the solution. “So that means the simple things that everyone is aware of – washing your hands, sneezing into your elbow, coughing into your elbow, not shaking hands, having hand sanitiser on standby as well – all of those things

“We’ve seen that over ridiculous things like toilet paper and other goods in supermarkets, so the risk of that escalating is very high if people are able to identify specific people in specific locations. “The reality is, we are all facing what is a very real part of our lives now, but it’s not a reason to panic, it’s a reason to do what we have been saying now for some time and take it all very seriously.” Confirmation that the Dubbo electorate has cases of people with COVID-19 is not a reason to panic, but it is a reason to take the recommended precautions very seriously, Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders said this week.

are part of what you need to do, no matter what you do for a job, or whether you have kids or not, or how old you are. “That is all the sort of stuff that we all need to do regularly now, but it’s also a responsibility of all of us to make the effort to tell other people, in a nice way, that you’re not shaking hands because of what we are going through at the moment.” Off the back of the confirmed local COVID-19 cases, Mr Saunders pleaded with his electorate not to panic or engage in anti-social behaviour, but rather

consider the news as a wake-up call. “It’s a reality check for everyone who maybe has been thinking it is unlikely to get here. “People have suggested that Dubbo could be isolated, I think that’s never been a realistic expectation, but at the same time I really, really want to emphasise that this doesn’t mean that we need to see panic buying or different behaviour around personal interactions. It means you can still keep a safe distance and be polite to people, and that’s part of the reason for not iden-

With many local businesses in the hospitality, retail and wellness sector forced to close their doors by midday on Monday as a result of the government’s mandate, Mr Saunders warned that further measures could be implemented if people are not following social distancing rules properly. “If we don’t make the massive effort that is required, then my concern is that there will be an extra stage, or maybe an extra couple of stages of closures into the future, as we’ve seen in other parts of the world,” he said. “So, my suggestion is – very strongly – to be part of the solution now, rather than have to have fairly drastic measures into the future.”

Three coronavirus cases confirmed in electorate THE Dubbo electorate had its first three cases of COVID-19 Coronavirus confirmed this week. Dubbo MP Dugald Saunders confirmed the news with Dubbo Photo News on Tuesday afternoon. “I can tell you, and I’ve literally just spoken to Health and confirmed... there are three cases confirmed in the Dubbo electorate,” he said during our interview. “Not three cases in Dubbo itself, but three cases in the electorate and that’s how I’ll be referring to cases in the future is ‘in my electorate’ and there’s a fairly simple reason for that, it means it covers Trangie, Narromine, Dubbo, Wellington, Gulgong, Mudgee and some of our smaller locations as well into the one area that I service”. Asked why the specific locations of the confirmed cases will not be released, Mr Saunders said it was to protect the privacy and safety of individuals. “Privacy is certainly one thing, and the other reality around this is if you’re talking about a smaller area, for example, in my electorate I’ve got some small towns like Geurie or Mumbil or Stuart Town or Trangie, if you were to say that three people tested positive in one of those smaller areas, most people would know who they are and that can be a good thing, but it can also be a very damaging thing to those people and also put them in some cases at risk and that is not something I’m prepared to do.”

COUNCIL WATCH

Business as usual for local dairy amid pandemic

By LYDIA PEDRANA

AS many industries begin to feel the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic, local dairy farmer Thomas Skinner feels lucky that the outbreak hasn’t stopped him going to work yet. “Thankfully not much has changed for us, people still have to drink milk,” the fourth-generation dairy farmer from Skinner’s Dairy told Dubbo Photo News this week. Skinner’s Dairy sells its milk to Australia’s top dairy processor, Saputo, who produce products for popular household brands including Coon, Devondale, Cracker Barrel and Mersey Valley. “I think they’ll just transfer what they are making the milk into as far as products go, so less probably fresh milk and more long-life milk because people are obviously buying the long-life to stay at home for the couple of

weeks, whereas fresh milk, being a perishable product, I think it could be one people will avoid a bit.” Classified as an ‘essential service’, the dairy has continued to operate as normal but with extra safety precautions enforced. “(Our staff) have all been given the heads up on trying to avoid going anywhere else if they can, just go to work and come home, like don’t stop (where groups of people are) on the way home and stuff like that, but it’s part of our day-to-day routine to be sanitised and clean anyway,” Mr Skinner said. “One other thing is that we are distancing ourselves from our pickup drivers because they go from farm to farm. “They are usually pretty friendly, chatty blokes that we all get along with really well, so we’re just making sure we’re doing the right thing by them and by us –

it’s just a wave and a ‘G’day how you going?’ The world hasn’t ended yet so let’s just ‘keep doing what we are doing’ kind of thing”. Being able to trade through the pandemic is a welcome relief after feeling the pinch of the unprecedented drought. Forced to cut their milking herd from 800 to 500, milk output decreased as did income and staffing numbers. At one point, they were spending $2500 a day on feed just to keep their replacement stock alive, but that cost has disappeared since the February rain events in the region. While it’s business as usual for now, Mr Skinner has a contingency plan in place should governmental restrictions around work tighten. “We’re still classed as an essential thing at the moment, but if they completely say noone is go-

More Council facilities closed IN response to the growing community concern around COVID-19, Dubbo Regional Council closed a number of its facilities from Wednesday, March 25, at 5pm. These are Dubbo and Wellington Aquatic Leisure Centres, Wellington Caves, Western Plains Cultural Centre, Old Dubbo Gaol, and Macquarie Regional Library. Councillors also voted to subsidise landing fees at Dubbo Regional Airport until June 2020, and investigate a direct service provision for library books and resources and local cafe and restaurant support with a home delivery service. In line with the Local Government Amendment Act, DRC will not be increasing its rates more than the 2.6 percent maximum rate peg for General Income Variation. However, this is the last year that the former Dubbo City and Wellington Shire residents will have different rates, as Council will need to harmonise rates across the merged DRC LGA for the 2021/2022 financial year. As part of the amalgamation process, it was agreed that there would be a rate path freeze for four years for each former LGA. That four-year period concludes on June 30, 2021.

ing anywhere for two weeks then it’ll just be me and my brothers, and our wives who all have separate jobs, they’ll all get a crash course in the dairy. We will need all hands on deck to keep it running.” Acknowledging that many businesses have had to close their doors following the government’s order on Sunday, Mr Skinner is grateful his industry is so far relatively unaffected, and he is determined to keep it that way. “We’re pretty lucky that we are still able to go to work and we’re not locked in the house because things have to be done,” he said. “But she’ll be right, even if it does (go into lock down), we’ll find a way. “It’s one of those things where we don’t have the option because it’ll make a lot of cows very sick if we stop milking them, so we have to keep milking them.”

Help for pets during home isolation ACCORDING to the World Health Organization, the Coronavirus can be left on animals’ fur, just as it can remain on a doorknob, a handrail, another human hand, or any other surface that an infected person has touched. People who are sick or under medical attention for COVID-19 should avoid close contact with animals and have another member of their household care for animals so as not to get the virus on their fur. Anyone who is quarantined and unable to care for their companion animals or who encounters an animal in immediate physical danger or in urgent need of food or veterinary care should call their local RSPCA. The recommendations come from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

BLOOD DONATIONS

IN BRIEF

14,000 blood donors needed now

Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) helpline open

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY ROAD trauma patients, surgical patients, medical and orthopaedic patients, pregnant mums and cancer patients all need donations of blood and plasma, but a recent influx of donations for bush fire victims and the emergence of COVID-19 has prompted Australian Red Cross Lifeblood to put out an urgent call for 14,000 more. “We’ve had people just not turn up to their appointments but the need for the blood or plasma is still very much there,” Lifeblood Dubbo service manager Debbie Garden said. On the front door of the local Darling Street clinic is a message for donors. It reads: “If you’ve been overseas in the past 28 days or are displaying cold-like symptoms, please don’t enter the donor centre (for the safety of other donors and staff). Instead, reschedule your donation by calling 131495 or on the Donate Blood app. Thanks for doing your part for our community. “If someone has the sniffles, we wouldn’t take their donation anyway, but our regulars who gave for the bushfires aren’t due back yet, so we really need more people to donate,” Mrs Garden said. “Obviously we have a very stringent process to ensure it is safe to be a donor,” Australian Red Cross Lifeblood spokesperson Brien Bruce told Dubbo Photo News.

“We need people to come in, to give up half an hour or an hour out of their day. Giving plasma can be done every two weeks,” he said. Lifeblood wants to reassure donors and the community that there is no evidence coronavirus is transmittable by blood transfusion. “The organisation has robust processes in place to ensure the safety of the blood supply and our donors, and we don’t allow people who are unwell to donate blood. Our donor centres are safe places to visit and we will take all necessary steps to ensure that stays the case,” Lifeblood chief executive Shelly Park said. “Last minute cancellations are also putting a dent in blood stocks at a time when donors are in urgent need. As we all know, there is no substitute for blood. It is a critical resource, and right now, we need more people booking appointments to donate,” Ms Park said. “To ensure there is a sufficient blood supply, we are appealing to donors to keep their appointments if well and healthy and are inviting new donors or those who haven’t donated for a while to come forward to help us,” Ms Park said. Australia Red Cross Lifeblood needs to collect 29,000 blood and plasma donations every week. z To make an appointment to give blood, visit lifeblood.com.au or call 13 14 95.

DUE to an unprecedented number of calls, Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) will again open its Helpline this weekend. The BCNA says the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has raised concerns among breast cancer patients, particularly those in active treatment. If people at home are worried about their upcoming treatment or symptoms, seeking information about reducing their risk, or feeling disconnected or worried about their emotional wellbeing, BCNA’s experienced cancer nurses are available to take calls. BCNA’s Helpline (1800 500 258) will be open 7 days a week, from 9 am to 5 pm, until further notice.

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood’s Suanne Tuanton and service manager Debbie Garden are ready to work with you to boost the nation’s essential blood supply. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

Common Childhood Illnesses Dr Ken Hazelton As school settles in for another year and children return to day care, illnesses begin to circulate. For parents and carers, it’s hard to see our children unwell, but fortunately many common childhood ailments are easily treated. Here are two bugs that are often passed around the playground. Worms Threadworm (also called pinworm) is commonly found in preschool and school-aged children, but the whole family can become infected. Threadworm look like white threads, which are about 1cm long. They live in the lower intestine but come out of the anus overnight to lay eggs, which causes the bottom to feel very itchy. Threadworm is spread when children scratch their bottom, collecting eggs under the fingernails, then carry them back to their mouth with their hands. Eggs can also be spread indirectly, in food, dust, or other items, and can survive up to two weeks outside the body. If your child has threadworm, they may: • Have an itchy bottom, which may become red and inflamed from scratching • Be irritable and generally ‘out of sorts’ • Not sleep very well • Have a reduced appetite • In girls, there may also be redness and itching around the vaginal area

To treat threadworm, see your pharmacist about over-the-counter treatment options. Medications such as pyrantel (Combantrin) or mebendazole (Banworm) are often recommended. Treat all family members at the same time, even if they are not showing symptoms. Unfortunately, repeat threadworm infection is very common.

To help prevent threadworm: • Encourage your child not to scratch their bottom. If they do, make sure it’s over underpants • Keep your child’s fingernails trimmed, and avoid biting nails or sucking thumbs • Wash hands and under nails regularly and thoroughly, especially after going to the toilet • Wash your child’s bedding, towels and toys in hot water • Vacuum often to remove any eggs and clean common surfaces, such as door handles • If you have tried threadworm treatment for your child and symptoms have not improved, or if they pass a large worm or have abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or low energy, see your GP. Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease This common viral infection is easily passed from person to person. It’s generally a mild illness and is not related to the foot and mouth disease that affects cattle and other animals. It mainly occurs in children under 10 but can also occur in older children and adults. Hand, foot and mouth disease is usually spread by person-to-person contact by contaminated hands but can also be spread by secretions from the mouth or respiratory system, and by direct contact with the fluid from blisters. It usually takes between three and five days after contact with an infected person before blisters appear. Signs and symptoms may include: • Small, oval, white blisters around the mouth, on the palms, fingers and soles of the feet • Small painful blisters inside the mouth on tongue and gums • Fever • Sore throat • Headache Hand, foot and mouth disease rarely causes further complications. Paracetamol can be used to relieve fever and discomfort and give your child frequent

sips of water to stop them becoming dehydrated. Allow blisters to dry out naturally and do not pierce or squeeze them. Children with hand, foot and mouth disease should be excluded from school or childcare until the blisters have dried-up and any fever has settled. More serious infections are uncommon, but they may include a persistent fever of 38 degrees or more, jerking movements, rapid breathing, excessive tiredness or irritability and difficulty waking. If any of these signs are present, seek medical help immediately.

Thumbs up for local midwives By LYDIA PEDRANA

A FAMILY from Hong Kong, who welcomed their second child at Dubbo Base Hospital last week, have given the staff and midwives a big Thumbs Up in Dubbo Photo News. When the first case of COVID-19 coronavirus was confirmed in the same Hong Kong hospital Virginia Weate was due to give birth in, her husband Craig Weate, who is originally from Dubbo, arranged for his wife to return to his hometown for the safe arrival of their baby boy. “What happened was, I spoke with them (Dubbo Base Hospital) just to make sure it was all possible before we had to make the rather snap decision, because as Virginia’s pregnancy went on she wouldn’t be able to travel once she hit so many weeks, so we thought we have to get this done quickly,” Mr Weate, who is a pilot with Cathay Pacific, told Dubbo Photo News. “So, I flew them down to Dubbo in early February and I had some time off in mid-February for a few days. I ducked home (to Dubbo) quickly and we went on one of the (hospital) visits and the midwife, I can’t remember her name unfortunately, but she was amazing, so patient and helpful. “It’s really lovely to have these staff and it really put myself at ease and my wife at ease knowing that she was going to be in good hands. “I can’t speak more highly of them.” With bub not due until April 1, Mr Weate returned to work and planned to arrive back in Dubbo on March 24, a few days before the baby’s scheduled arrival. Meanwhile, Mrs Weate and their three-year-old daughter Sophie bunked in with Mr Weate’s parents, Ron and Chris, who live in one of the local over-55’s villages. However, baby Zach had plans of his own, entering the world two weeks early on March 19, meaning his dad missed out on his arrival. “I’ve seen lots and lots of photos and videos and I’ve heard him cry, and I’m missing my daughter as well like crazy – she will make such a great big sister,” Mr Weate said while self-isolating in Sydney on Monday. “It’s a wonder with modern technology, we can do video chats

and stuff like that.” Grandmother, Chris Weate, personally expressed her thanks to the Dubbo midwives and staff for the care and understanding they gave her daughter in law. “To be away from husband and parents was very stressful but your care helped and made it easier for Australian grandparents,” Mrs Weate said. “From Hong Kong to Dubbo, our sincere thanks”. Mr Weate was due to arrive back in Dubbo on Tuesday evening to be reunited with his wife, daughter and parents, and meet his fiveday-old son for the first time.

Now, they face the challenge of getting the family back to Hong Kong so Mr Weate can again self-isolate for 14 days before returning to work. Describing the measures taken in Hong Kong in response to the current pandemic, Mr Weate said self-isolation was “extremely strict”. “They have wrist bands and tracking Apps on mobile phones, so they will send a message to a phone and you need to respond, scan the QR code that is on your wrist band, and send your location,” he said. Asked whether he was con-

cerned about travelling with his young family during such uncertain times, the new father of two said “no”. “The good thing with the air conditioning system on aircrafts, it’s vertical not horizontal, so the air comes in through the top and out through the bottom, so there’s less likelihood of passenger to passenger infection transmission,” he said. “Also, the filters they have on the aircraft are the same as submarine filters, so they are very, very good.”

ALTHOUGH Wellington Caves is currently closed due to COVID-19, it is still going to be able to offer a unique educational experience when the world returns to normal, thanks to significant funding provided by the NSW Government. Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders recently announced a $400,000 grant as part of the Stronger Country Communities Fund. “The visitors centre was a $4.2 million project which the NSW Government contributed $3.8 million towards as part of the money given to Dubbo Regional Council when the merger happened,” Mr Saunders said. “This $400,000 from the Stronger Country Communities Fund will allow the council to proceed with the installation of an interactive exhibition zone in the visitors centre which will appeal to families and school groups, and in turn increase visitation rates to the caves.”

Dubbo Photo News March 26-April 1, 2020 COULD IT GET ANY WEIRDER?

IN BRIEF

Common sense gone to the deep freeze

Peak farming body backs REX Airlines call for assistance

By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY THE 2020 Great Toilet Paper Stampede was followed by the Great Mince Meat Stampede and because the meat hoarders needed to give that meat a longer life, the Great Freezer Stampede followed that same day in Dubbo. Dubbo Photo News was told about one Sydney resident who, when he found out there were no freezers to be had in that city for love nor money, rang up and ordered two from Dubbo and had them freighted down to him at a cost of $500. The proprietor of Dubbo’s Harvey Norman Electrical, Anthony Hilder, said the world has literally gone mad. His store normally sells up to half a dozen freezers each week, last Monday morning he had about 60 freezers in stock, 40 were sold that day and the remaining 20 had all gone by Tuesday afternoon. “Massive run on freezers, people are panic-buying their foods, they need to store them so they need to buy freezers for that storage, next thing when supplies of freezers run out will be frost-free fridges and upside-down fridges,” Mr Hilder told Dubbo Photo News. “Breadmakers, slow cookers, they’re all selling, they’re all taking off, coffee machines and coffee pods, if people have got to stay at home, they’ll want their

coffee. “I’ve never seen anything like this, never. I’ve been in the industry for more than 20 years and it’s unbelievable. It defies logic,” he said. The experienced electrical goods retailer says he sees the underlying cause of the panic buying as the well-publicised craziness on social media, as well as on the TV news, causing people who are normally rational thinkers to lose their heads in the fear that everything could be

gone, and they’ll miss out “It’s self-perpetuating, normal people are forced to panic buy because of the original panic buyers,” Mr Hilder said. “Most people have common sense, but this unprecedented situation is forcing them to look irrational now because of that panic created in the first place. If no-one had panicked in the first place, we wouldn’t be in this situation.” While business is sky high at the moment, he says these sorts

of highs are always followed by a trend in the opposite direction. “It’s hard to tell, but if this crisis is all over and done with by Christmas or whenever there’ll be cupboards and freezers full of food they won’t need to replace for a while so there’ll have to be a lull at some stage I think,” he said. “We’re just working flat out to keep the doors open and keep replacing stock and getting whatever stock’s available to keep the shop full.”

THE state’s peak farmer group has backed calls from REX airlines for assistance during the Coronacrisis with the regional carrier announcing a trading halt this week amid warnings that all regional airlines could be at risk. NSW Farmers President James Jackson said regional air services are vital for farming and rural communities, particularly in relation to accessing health services in larger centres and cities. “Air services to the far west of the state have only recently been reinstated, cutting travel time significantly and providing another option for visitors to come to the region,” Mr Jackson said. “Many rural communities already face the challenges of poor and inconsistent voice and data services, loss of hospitals and allied health services, and loss of professional and public services. This makes regional air services all that more important.” NSW Farmers has welcomed the Federal Government $715 million support package for the domestic airline industry, which does include the waiving of regional aviation security charges and aviation fuel excise.

Dubbo principal backs decision to keep country’s schools open By LYDIA PEDRANA DUBBO Christian School principal Warren Melville has backed the government’s decision to keep schools open despite many other institutions shutting down as the COVID-19 pandemic takes over the globe. Mr Melville’s support comes after the NSW Teachers Federation (NSWTF) executive slammed the Prime Minister and Premier saying “teachers and principals have now been thrust onto the frontline of this crisis”. The NSW Teachers’ Federation also pointed out the “continuing contradictions” expressed by the Prime Minister and Premier saying it was a “recipe for chaos”. In a statement, the NSWTF took issue with the fact that schools would remain open despite encouraging parents to keep kids at home; that the one person per four square metre guide was im-

possible to follow in classrooms, corridors and playgrounds; that children were low risk at school but were still travelling on public transport to and from school; and that while there is a concern that kids could infect grandparents but not teachers, many teachers were also grandparents. Asked whether he thought schools should be shutdown, Mr Melville said “no”, backing the government’s decision to keep them open. “I think the Teacher’s Federation make some valid points, but I also think now is the time to stand behind our leaders, both State and Federal, who are doing an excellent job in incredibly agile and challenging circumstances,” he told Dubbo Photo News. “We must also, of course, ensure our teachers are supported and do all we can to provide a safe and healthy work environment for them. Every school will

be doing that. “There is no doubt that we are working in unique circumstances and my experience is that teachers are incredibly committed vocationally to the best outcomes for their students.” While there have been reports of teachers around the country feeling as though they are being “sacrificed”, Mr Melville said teachers at his school were “adapting to what is required and doing so collegially and with positivity”. “I haven’t noted a sense of being treated unfairly in our staff,” he said. Meanwhile, Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders also believes the decision to keep schools open was the right one for the time being. “There has been a lot said about school closures or non-school closures, I’ve had people talk to me from both sides about what they think should happen,” he said.

“I think at the moment, the decision made and announced by the Premier and the Education Minister is actually working for people, so if you simply have no way of dealing with your children at home, then they should go to school. If you do not want them to go to school and you are capable of having them at home, keep them at home. “At the moment, we need to make sure that people who are hospital workers or working in the police force or running a petrol station or running a supermarket (are) able to have their kids looked after somewhere and taught somewhere without just pulling the plug. “This (current arrangement) gives us the ability for that to happen and I think that’s the best thing at the moment.” Macquarie Anglican Grammar school was also contacted for comment.

IN BRIEF

Dubbo Parkrun events postponed by COVID-19 until further notice DUBBO’S Parkrun has been cancelled until the end of March following a directive from the organisation’s head of global communications, last week. Events are suspended in Australia and New Zealand at least until the end of March. “This is largely to bring all Parkrun countries into the same time frame and we very much expect closures to continue through April at least,” Parkrun Asia Pacific strategic director Tim Oberg said in an emailed communication to members. “Remaining active is incredibly important, and we are working on ways to encourage and support that, however, please do not arrange group gatherings at your Parkrun venues whilst Parkrun events are suspended,” he said. Dubbo Parkrun members have collectively run the equivalent of 4 years, 209 days, 2 hours, 57 minutes and 46 seconds. The weekly community gathering has at times hosted as many as 460 participants during a single five kilometre event.

Keeping the wheels in motion during the COVID-19 pandemic COMMENT By MARK COULTON, FEDERAL MEMBER FOR PARKES I KNOW there are people in my electorate who are concerned about COVID-19 and what it means for their communities. We want to minimise and slow the spread, especially to support those most vulnerable to this illness in our communities. But in order for this to happen, we need to keep following the advice of health authorities, and take very seriously the need to practise excellent hygiene, social distancing and self-isolation. A central website contains all the latest Coronavirus news, updates and advice from Government agencies across Australia – I encourage everyone to regularly visit www.australia.gov.au. I urge my constituents to remain calm and continue with their daily lives as best they can, while respecting the measures

which are in place to keep us safe and well. We need to try to keep our wheels in motion as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. While this pandemic is limiting what we can and can’t do day to day, it is my view that we need to work hard to keep things going in Western NSW. Those in business will be doing all that they can to minimise job losses. Small businesses including hospitality and retail are already facing difficult prospects, with many looking at how they can diversify to stay competitive. Now is a time like no other for those businesses to be considering what more they can possibly do to stay afloat, in conjunction with support available from the Australian Government to help them manage cash flow challenges and retain employees. There will likely be significant challenges and inconveniences that continue for some time – not only for businesses, but for indi-

WORKING FROM HOME

viduals and households as well. Readers – it is you, and your daily practices, that will allow us to minimise the spread of COVID-19. I can’t stress enough just how vigilant we need to be about following the directions and advice provided by Government agencies and medical experts. There is always a silver lining in difficult times like these. As regional Australians, we have a real opportunity here to set an example for our city counterparts, to slow the spread of this virus. The decisions we make today will determine both our short and long-term futures. To all my constituents, take care – I will be providing regular updates to the community as the situation evolves. If you are seeking information on coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit australia.gov.au or phone the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080. The line operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

4 jobs you can do from home WITH many of us having to now work from home, it’s worth remembering it has many advantages to offer, including increased productivity, reduced transportation costs and greater flexibility in hours worked. If your hours have been reduced, or you’ve lost your job, it could be worth considering pursuing other jobs that can be home-based. Here are four jobs you can do from home. 1. Virtual assistant A virtual assistant provides a host of creative, technical and administrative services in corporate, legal, medical and other settings. What’s great about marketing yourself as a virtual assistant

is that you can tailor your offered services to what you’re good at. That said, the greater your skillset, the higher your earning potential will be. 2. Translator Knowing more than one language can be a marketable skill, one you can put to use by working as a translator or interpreter. If you have a background in a particular discipline or industry, you can draw on it to market yourself as a specialised translator. There are many translation opportunities in both the private and public sectors. 3. Web developer/designer These days, almost every company and public organisation has a website, and they need people

4 ways jobseekers can stay motivated MANY Aussies have lost their job due to the coronavirus pandemic and will be actively searching for new work. It’s easy to get discouraged during a job search, especially if you’ve gone weeks without hearing back from potential employers. Here are four things you can do to stay motivated. 1. Make a schedule Establishing a routine will ensure you remain productive. Every morning, get up, get dressed and have breakfast around the same time you would if you were working. Set aside

time each day for the job hunt and for household tasks. Don’t forget to give yourself a lunch break. 2. Set goals Setting measurable goals will help you stay on track. For example, make it a point to apply for two jobs every day, or try to make one new contact in your industry every week. 3. Use rewards Don’t wait until you’ve landed a job to applaud your efforts. Instead, be sure to celebrate minor achievements like being contacted for an in-

terview with a small reward like a takeaway latte you like or a hot bubble bath at the end of the day. 4. Find a coach Appoint a friend or family member as your job search coach. They’ll make sure you meet your daily goals and give you a little push when you need it. Finally, don’t forget to get outside help. Reach out to an employment agency or organisation in your area to help you find leads for potential jobs.

to create, maintain, modify and update them. In addition, web design and development skills are easy to combine with other areas of expertise, such as advertising and graphic design. 4. Bookkeeper/accountant This is a perfect occupation if you want to work from home, either full or part time. You’ll probably have to meet clients from time to time and you can expect a busier schedule during tax season. While there are many opportunities to secure remote jobs, be on the lookout for work-from-home scams, which have become more common in recent years. Be sure to research anyone you work for and to seek out employee reviews online.

Pandemic impact on local jobs By LYDIA PEDRANA AS many businesses in retail, services and hospitality close their doors and lay off staff as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a local recruiter has confirmed other industries are still hiring. Executive recruiter Melinda Barton from Spinifex Recruiting said the global crisis is yet to impact some sectors, with many of their clients continuing to actively recruit. “Most of our clients, across NSW, are making every effort to retain their casual workforce, even if they are being offered reduced hours,” Ms Barton told

Dubbo Photo News. “I expect a financial imperative will change this going forward, but for now, most companies appear to be trying to do business as usual.” While Spinifex Recruiting does not work across hospitality and retail industries, they service local government, IT, industrial, mining, traffic control and executive (including manufacturing, agriculture, science and technology, accounting and finance) sectors. Given only “essential services” may be able to trade at some stage, Ms Barton encourages those seeking work to explore

such areas. “There will be people hiring, essential services that are allowed to remain open, supermarkets have advised they are ramping up, and health industries and social services probably will too,” she said. “I know that some of our local NDIS suppliers are trying to make contingency plans around staffing to ensure continuity of care for their clients.” But if you have lost your job, Ms Barton advises using this time wisely. “It’s going to be tough as the world is going to be generally a bit depressed and anxious, I

WATER RESTRICTIONS

WATER SAVING ACTION PLAN (WSAP) Purpose Business water consumers have an important role to play in conserving Dubbo’s water and reducing the likelihood that greater restrictions will be introduced. This Business Water Saving Action Plan (WSAP) is a tool to assist business users in assessing their current water use levels and implementing changes that can be made to improve their water efficiencies. Potential benefits of completing a WSAP include: • Improved management of water consumption resulting in reduced water-related costs; • Change in staff behaviour and strengthened reputation; • Development of a plan for the continuity of activities, where appropriate, in times of drought; • Support of broad community efforts in reducing the likelihood that greater restrictions are introduced in the future.

WATER RESTRICTION BREACHES Council staff will be monitoring compliance with the restriction activities. Failure to comply with restriction activities can result in on the spot fines of $220.00, under the Local Government Act 1993 No 30(Sections 679, 637).

STAY STRONG, DUBBO

Kind couple create community hub for those in need By LYDIA PEDRANA IN a time of hardship and uncertainty, a kind-hearted local couple are determined to ease the burden on the community’s most vulnerable. Tyler Haru and her partner Connor McKay created a social media page titled ‘Dubbo Random Acts of Kindness’ where people can offer their time, skills, goods and services to those most in need. It all started when they saw the vision of greedy citizens stockpiling essentials and leaving shelves empty.

BRUCE Howie (pictured) had tickets booked for last weekend’s Running on Empty Festival scheduled for Dubbo. When the event was cancelled, rather than sit at home and sulk, he jumped into his heavily modified 1960s XL Falcon ute and drove from Kyabram, Victoria straight up the Newell Highway to Dubbo. “I thought I’d come for a drive anyway,” Mr Howie told Dubbo Photo News. He met with 60-odd other classic car enthusiasts who staged an impromptu gathering at the Dubbo Visitors’ Centre on Saturday night before taking some twilight group pictures at the drive-in followed by laps of the main. “I teed up with Mum and Dad to come down from Moree so we’ve had a chance to catch up which was good, I hadn’t seen them for a couple of years.” His baby blue ute is a sleeper, a master of understatement as it looks reasonably stock, but has won a drag race or two. “An XL Falcon ute, I’ve had it since 1985, I bought it off my high school, it’s had numerous changes from a

Ms Haru and Mr McKay quickly put together a hamper, packed with basics, and began searching for someone in the Dubbo area who really needed it. It included items such as toilet paper, soap, oats, tea, flour and biscuits and it was advertised on social media. “First we put together a big care package and put it on Facebook Marketplace just to see who needed it the most, and there was an elderly lady who has had a chronic chest infection and hadn’t been able to leave her house for two weeks, so we took that down to her,” Ms Haru told Dubbo Photo News. “It’s just to bring a little bit of good to the community with all of this going on, it seems to have inspired a lot of other people.” The page attracted more than 400

144ci six cylinder to a 250ci 2V and now it’s got a little Windsor in it, a 302ci V8 engine,” Mr Howie said. “I was umming and ahhing whether I should drive the old ute up but I made the right decision when I got on the road. I thought this is just so good driving the ute, it just took all that other crap about the Coronavirus out of my mind and I just enjoyed the drive. “I didn’t know if anyone else who was meant to be coming for the movie was going to be here but it was good to catch up with Mum and Dad and it’s good to see a few turn up for this little gathering,” he said. The ute performed flawlessly on its road trip but Mr Howie said he has mechanical memories when it comes to Dubbo. “I had to change a water pump on an old Commodore right about here back in the early 1990s on a trip from Melbourne to Queensland, I don’t mind Dubbo,” he said, planning to donate the ticket money he paid if he can’t make it back when Running on Empty is eventually rescheduled. “Look, I don’t know what the drive-in’s planned. I’ll just leave the money with them and they can de-

members in just two days and people are putting their hands up to help in any way they can. While some have offered to mind the children of the frontline medical workers while they are on duty, others are willing to cook meals and do groceries for those who are unable to do it themselves. “Our goal is to grow a community of kindness, create regular food baskets from donated items and create a place where people aren’t embarrassed to reach out in their time of need,” Mr McKay said. “Whether that is food items, kids clothing, household goods or anything that can be re-homed to someone that needs it.” Ms Haru’s workplace is one of those that has already closed down, and she says focusing her positive energy on this new project is a big help.

“Driving up in the old bomb took so much of my stress away, it’s actually made me more keen to do more things with the ute.

Friends keep soccer game going

Sporting: Ross Rayamajhi and his mates have played social soccer together for 10 years and were keeping their distance last weekend. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

By JOHN RYAN ROSS Rayamajhi and his mates have played social soccer together for the past 10 years. Last weekend, they agreed to keep the activity going now more than ever, but to do it in a safe and responsible way by keeping their distance from one another. “We’re just mates, we come here (Lady Cutler East Oval) every Saturday and Sunday to just kick the ball around and have some fun, that’s about it basically,” Mr Rayamajhi told

Dubbo Photo News. Mr Rayamajhi said so many organised events had been cancelled and so much sport canned, that it was critical that mates could work out a way of keeping social distance, but still socialise and exercise. “I think it’s important, we come out here to have some fun and still try to keep a distance apart from each other, I think that’s important.” When Dubbo Photo News visited the crew on Saturday evening, everyone was

happy and smiling, pleased they could still interact and exercise while keeping their distance. Everyone at the scratch game agreed humans need to socialise and do things together. “The most important thing for most people is to be social and try to stay positive during difficult times like this,” Mr Rayamajhi said. With mandated social isolation that has never impacted Australia before, Mr Rayamajhi said people need to be cre-

ative in finding ways to keep friendships without compounding health risks and the transmission of Coronavirus. “I think people can still be social, you’ve just got to be careful – we’ve been doing this for the last 10 years and we don’t want to stop because of the virus, we want it to continue and we’ll keep our personal space.” Sadly, the players will need to review their game following the new announcements by the Prime Minister this week.

ENTERTAINMENT

Happy Days at the Drive-in By JOHN RYAN ON the surface, the Coronavirus crisis devastated Dubbo’s Westview Drive-In’s plans for last week’s “Running on Empty” screening. Hundreds of classic car lovers had pre-booked tickets and the show was sold out, with enthusiasts coming from as far away as Victoria for Saturday evening’s entertainment. A Westview Drive-in spokesperson said letting ticket holders know that the evening had to be called off left a feeling of emptiness. “Given the timing of the announcement we recognised there would be much disappointment and upset to plans and bookings,” he said. “We felt delaying the announcement any further was negligent as many people have accommodation bookings, childcare arrangements, leave pending and so on that may not be able to be cancelled. “We did apologise whole heartedly to anyone that was adversely or financially effected by this cancellation,” he said. He said any time an organiser has to call off an event there’s an expectation of a backlash but

while shoppers have gone mad fighting over rolls of toilet paper, he said the classic car community has been beyond wonderful. The drive-in crew has been blown away by the support and commitment of their ticketholders, sponsors, contractors and suppliers as well as the local and wider community, with less than 10 people requesting a refund and

a solid commitment from the vast majority to attend a rescheduled event later this year. “It has warmed my heart reading emails and comments from ticket holders wishing us well, wanting to donate money or pay it forward, asking how they can help and simply offering their support and condolences. “I love living in the bush and am

proud to call Dubbo my home and if anything, much of what I have witnessed (except in the supermarket) makes me proud to be a bushy and a rusted-on Australian. “We are so very lucky in many respects that we are a tiny business that doesn’t depend on our events as our primary source of income – everyone who is involved in the Westview is there because

we love it. He said his team is surrounded by such wonderful people and to date he hasn’t seen anyone come into the Drive-in who hasn’t had a smile right across their face. “That to me is the most important currency,” he said. “To our sponsors, well all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Dubbo Photo News March 26-April 1, 2020 CHARITY

LOCKS OF LOVE FOR CHILDREN By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY NATALIE Lewis hasn’t had short hair since she was about ten years old but her passion for community and children has prompted her to take the chop for charity. “I had wanted to do something community-minded, and I’d been thinking about this for a while,” said Natalie, whose name is wellknown to Dubbo Photo News readers as one of our long-time reporters. “I looked up the charity and found my hair fit the criteria. You need to have length, and it needs to be uncoloured by chemicals, and not having too much grey hair.” Mrs Lewis’s hair will be donated to children’s charity Variety through their ongoing campaign ‘Hair with Heart’. “The reason I chose Variety, the children’s charity, is because it helps children specifically. Children who have cancer, alopecia or another illness which causes them to lose their hair. I really feel strongly about helping children, and I know that it would be very traumatising for them to be losing

their hair, at school for example, where they could be bullied. “We often think about hair loss in terms of cancer but not for young people. Kids shouldn’t have to worry about not having hair. I’ve always enjoyed giving back to community and this is an easy way to do it. “The decision to run an online fundraiser as well is because the wigs are expensive. “It costs $6000 to make a wig.

COMMENT

Mayor Ben Shields: How an extra takeaway each week could save local jobs COMMENT by MAYOR BEN SHIELDS IT has been a big week. Changes in relation to the COVID-19 response have been rapidly evolving and continue to have huge impacts locally. Recent announcements of closures of pubs and clubs, tourism operations and changes in the way hospitality businesses can operate has impacted the region incredibly with the loss of an estimated 600 jobs, possibly more. It has never been more important for us to band together. These are tough times but we can make a huge difference to the future of many small businesses and of our region overall. There are an estimated 36,493 families in the Dubbo Regional Council Local Government Area (LGA) – if every family spent an additional $50 a week on food services, economic forecasting suggests we can weather this storm and maintain economic viability in an important service and employment sector of our community. So, for those of us thinking ‘what can I do, how do I make a difference?’ make a difference by purchasing one additional meal through the initiatives of our local businesses in Dubbo and Wellington. Consumers have a role to play in this crisis. If every family in the LGA commits to at least one commercially purchased family meal a week in addition to their usual spend, we can work together and

Van Phan and wife Trang with Mayor Ben Shields

maintain viability for businesses. If you already get a takeaway meal on a Friday night, keep doing that, and in addition buy a traditional dinner from a local café or restaurant for your family sometime during the week. On Tuesday I was talking to Van Phan and his wife Trang. Van is

particularly concerned about the hospitality industry as a whole in Dubbo and encourages locals to embrace the multiple restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs that are offering takeaway. Their restaurant Ha Noi Corner at Riverdale is an example of small hospitality businesses now been forced to push

the takeaway option to the public. If we do nothing, and just stick to our normal day to day spending, this virus will cost the economy $13.15 million in direct spend each month caused by job losses alone. By comparison if we band together as a community and spend that additional $50 a week

on food services, direct spend will reach $14.26 million which is an extra $1.11 million flowing through our economy every month. We will save jobs and businesses. Council’s Economic Development and Marketing Branch have created a central source of information regarding the virus, including updates, business resources, connection to financial assistance and staff management information, and most recently updates on operation changes at consumer-facing businesses and new service offerings. Head to www.dubbo.com.au/ updates to find out what businesses are offering, where you can spend your extra $50 and get quality, great tasting dinners as either a pick-up or delivery. A huge number of businesses have already contacted Council to be a part of this industry support program, and this push for local purchasing will be supported by a digital and radio marketing campaign to launch this week. The Branch is also working on ways to connect displaced workers into other businesses that are looking for a workforce in the current climate and updates will be provided as confirmed. On a brighter note, I have been hearing great stories of businesses and workers looking out for each other, making changes and helping others along the way. It makes me proud to be a leader of this community.

Cobar car lover hits town

1 NEW Speed Of Life

By JOHN RYAN

2 NEW Flip Phone Fantasy

PETER Zazoniuk (pictured) is a veteran of Cobar’s hugely successful Running on Empty Festival and he was keen to make the three-hour trip from his hometown to relive that feeling at last weekend’s movie screening in Dubbo. “I was coming down for the movie and I had the car already loaded on the trailer so I said I’ll keep coming and do it anyway, you know, even when the movie was called off,” Mr Zazoniuk said. He drove his 1957 Morris Minor down from Cobar to Dubbo a few months ago to get a new exhaust and generator but decided he’d put the vehicle on a trailer this time. “It’s all standard, all original running gear, all been redone, four cylinder fourspeed, it’s got a couple of mod cons in the motor,” he said. The car’s roof rack is a one of a kind roof carrier with a unique back story which sat in his backyard for decades before Mr Zazoniuk decided to give it a new lease on life. “The roof rack is off my father’s old Ford Consul that he had back in the ‘60s. I see Dad’s roof rack every day when I get into the car. Dad’s been dead since 1972, it’s great to have something that reminds me of him all the time,” he mused. “The rack is old, it’s something different, the caps where it hits the roof are off old chairs. I couldn’t get the proper caps for it.”

Support is available for isolated cancer patients CANCER Council NSW wants to remind people affected by cancer that there are support services available for those who are needing to stay home due to coronavirus risk. Cancer brings with it a huge emotional and mental burden for both patients and their loved ones. Being isolated from friends and family can make these feelings worse, but there is still remote support available for those in need. Anyone affected by cancer and in need of support should reach out to the 13 11 20 Information and Support line (available 9am to 5pm, Mon to Fri) and speak with a trained health professional. Patients and carers can also remotely access cancer information webinars and podcasts at www.cancercouncil.com.au/cancer-information/, or discuss their cancer issues on the Cancer Council Online Community at onlinecommunity.cancercouncil.com.au/. These are hard times for cancer patients and carers, but Cancer Council NSW wants you to know they are available to support you.

People have been told not to socially gather in large groups but Mr Zazoniuk likes the idea that a group of classic car enthusiasts can cruise around in their cars together without being in close contact with each other. “I was at the caravan park and got told that even though the movie was cancelled, that a few people were going to go

for a cruise and he said to come down,” he said. “It’s not a problem – what is a problem is going into a supermarket where people are right next to you. How are you going to avoid catching the virus if they’ve got it, you know, but Australia was too slow in acting on this and that’s why so many people in Australia have caught it.”

WHEN three local men stepped out on the town on the weekend, they certainly captured plenty of attention. Nick Pahlow said it was a bit of Aussie humour but with a serious overtone. “One hundred per cent, this is a real threat and while we’re getting lots of laughs, we want people in Dubbo to know this is serious.” His mate Anthony Charters said that just by taking the trouble to dress up, he’d had a great night out with his mates but also raised local awareness. “So many people were talking about it,” Mr Charters said. Kaiden Hill agreed. “It’s a bit of fun and it lets people know that this Coronavirus is coming,” he said.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

A matter of life or death By JOHN RYAN ANGE Croft has always been a big believer that education is key and now, more than ever, she needs the community to be educated. She feels that for many locals, the threat of the Coronavirus is something distant that happens to old people in China or Italy. Mrs Croft is concerned that far too many people aren’t taking the threat seriously. In her household, social distancing is literally a matter of life and death, with 13-year-old Molly Croft struggling with immune deficiencies after years of fighting cancer. “Everyone just wants their own feelings validated but if we stop and listen to each other, then we might just learn something new and understand where someone else is coming from,” Mrs Croft said. “I’m just a mum of two girls in Dubbo NSW Australia and my opinion isn’t worth much but I’m feeling a little helpless right now and if you have the time to read this, then maybe I can make a difference. “We have all read the papers and heard the news. We all think we know what this Coronavirus is capable of, but for most of us here in Aus, right now we haven’t yet felt it,” she said. Mrs Croft is challenging everyone to put a face to this virus and make it real to each of us. “I understand many people think they aren’t going to get really sick if they catch it, but many of our loved ones aren’t so lucky,” she said. “I challenge you all to stop and think of at least one person who is special to you and your love can help protect from this virus. “I challenge you to keep them in mind and when you think this isn’t such a bad virus, this won’t hurt me, I want you to think of them,” she said. According to Mrs Croft, every family and every circle of friends all have someone who is battling illness, someone old and special to them or someone who has a new baby with an undeveloped and minimal immune system. “For me today, this person is my 13-year-old daughter Molly who has battled bone cancer the past 21 months and who has had more operations than most in a lifetime,” Mrs Croft said. “She doesn’t deserve to die from this virus, and neither do your loved ones – she is in isolation, her sister is in isolation, John and I, her parents are doing our best to limit exposure to others but I need everyone to help us one more time.” She’s urging everyone in Australia to make the threat of the virus real by personalising the disease there is no cure for, by getting that picture of your vulnerable loved one stuck in your head so the threat hits very close to home. “Please keep this real Australia, let’s all make sacrifices to help those who need our protection,” she said. “We are stronger together – this today is who I am being diligent for, Molly Clare Croft is my reason. “Who is your reason?”

The threat of coronavirus is very concerning to 13-year-old Molly Croft who is struggling with immune deficiencies after years of fighting cancer.

REFLECTION

Step back to enjoy what you like to do Wongarbon’s Brett Garling is one of the nation’s most gifted sculptors whose work is in demand across Australia. But while he’s known for his larger than life bronze sculptures, this talented artist often paints a full landscape every day, capturing the fleeting dawn or dusk light along a local riverbank. He says that happy space he determines to make happen most days is a great solace in times such as these. He took time out to sit down for a Q&A with JOHN RYAN.

The Dubbo City Bowling Club is temporarily closed until further notice

The world is going to hell in a handbasket, what do you do to keep yourself sane? Life has certainly taken a turn all right, with the scary side of humanity scaring me more than the virus. The whole self-isolation that we are being encouraged to do is a phenomenon that’s not new to me as most of my time is in self isolation, not because of any virus but because I get work done! Luckily my work is also my pleasure so starting a day with paints in hand and a short drive out to a quiet spot is my way of not only sanity relief but starting work for the day. My day after that usually is a combination of foundry work and sculpting – still not a bad day! Finding something you love to do and being able to make a living from it sure is great. How important is it to be aware of what’s going on, but try and do the things you’re passionate about? It’s impossible to not know what’s going on, with the media reporting on the situation 24/7 and the panic as you walk into supermarkets, makes me a little nervous. But, stepping away from all that and focusing on what I do, painting, sculpting, renovating a property, gardening, family, reading, playing banjo, the horses or just walking the dog, I quickly forget the world’s going to hell and that people in general don’t react well under pressure (real or imagined) and get on with living. We don’t keep up with every update at every second, which helps not getting overwhelmed with what’s happening, and we don’t just talk about the virus. How difficult is it to be disciplined enough to stop what you’re doing and just go and knock up a quick painting? Going and knocking out a painting when you have five jobs that need doing isn’t always easy and it has

taken years of discipline to be able to do but at the end of the day the jobs you put on hold for the sake of sanity still get done. It’s taking that break that allows me to happily tackle those jobs later, rather than begrudgingly doing the jobs while I think about painting. Are people surprised at how you can complete a landscape start to finish in such a short period of time? I think it does surprise people at how quickly I can produce a painting and they come out with “you’re so gifted” or “you’re so lucky”. I’m a firm believer that you make your own luck and life is only a mirror of what you put out. A lifetime of experience and a daily work ethic has allowed me to work quickly, as with any professionals who knows their work. I’d have a hell of a time stripping a jet engine but I’m sure a bloke who’s been doing that job for 40 years could do it blindfolded. What’s the quickest you’ve ever done a painting in from start to finish? The early and late light is usually the most dramatic but also the most fleeting, with usually a maximum time of about 15 to 20 minutes to get a painting down. I regularly do 5 to 15 minutes on (several) paintings during these times, as opposed to just one painting, and 90 to 120 minutes on a larger work with more stable light. What’s going through your mind when you paint? The ultimate goal when painting is to get into the zone, just like a sportsman, to totally focus on what’s happening using all your senses and acquired skills to instinctively react. When you hit zone, time becomes irrelevant. Of course, there are times when a passer-by will stop and want a chat, I’m always up for that but when it breaks that intense concentration it’s hard to get it back at times. Before I start a painting, I do a quick mental painting in my head, I visualise it already painted on the canvas, composition, colours, tones, contrasts, the whole bit. Once I’m able to see it, the doing is much easier, and I use this technique to sculpt as well. Last thoughts on summing up these times? In the troubled media driven hysteria that we’re facing at the moment I think we need to step back, take time out of every day to enjoy something you like to do. Treat others like friends and when all this blows over you might have developed some better habits than before the panic.

Metres matter, rural doctors urge RURAL doctors say the best advice to protect yourself from coronavirus is to keep your distance, wash your hands, and remember that metres matter. Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) president Dr John Hall believes rural communities were in the best position to slow down the spread of infection. “In some ways rural communities are the best protected,” Dr Hall said. “There are simply less people gathering, travelling and visiting, and from fewer places, than in the cities. “When it comes to ‘social distancing’, (which is) the key way of slowing the spread of coronavirus, it is

just easier for us due to our space and lower population numbers,” he said. Aside from keeping at least 1.5 metres from other people and washing hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water, he says restricting travel will help prevent the spread of disease. “The absolute best advice is to stay home as much as possible,” Dr Hall said. “Use the time to catch up on household chores, watch Netflix, talk on the phone. “If you can work from home – do so. If you were planning on catching up with friends – FaceTime them instead,” he said.

MEAT

Meat frenzy By JOHN RYAN MARK Knaggs owns Dubbo Meat and Seafood Centre and until a few weeks ago he thought he’d seen every challenge that could be thrown at him. Daily turnover is currently up by 300 per cent and growing as people find out there’s meat on the shelves. “It’s like it’s Christmas or Easter, everyone’s shopping like there’s a party but at the moment they don’t really know what they’re shopping for and I think that’s the difference, no-one’s ever experienced this so no-one knows how it’s all going to roll out, what’s going to happen, how it’s going to end or if it’s going to end, it’s pretty scary,” Mr Knaggs told Dubbo Photo News. He says there are plenty of customers who are not the panicking type coming in to stock up, thinking if they don’t get ahead of the madness sweeping social media, they could be left with empty shelves. “It’s surprising the people

PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS

that are coming in and ordering enough meat for a month, who’ve gone and bought a chest freezer and turned up here and gone righto, I want to put an order in, it’s just gone off the Richter Scale, it has, absolutely nuts.” He says it’s difficult to blame people for thinking the shelves could empty, because in many cities they are. He’s had people drive over from as far away as Sydney and the Central Coast to stock up on

meat, scared that after seeing innocuous items such as toilet paper in incredibly short supply, there’ll be a wholesale panic if food runs out. “I don’t know where the toilet paper thing came from but the meat... we’ve just come out the other end of a drought, I hope we’re at the end of the drought, there is a shortage of meat and I’ve got my suppliers telling me now that we won’t have any lamb this week, two suppliers have told

me that already, the lamb for last week and this week had gone before last weekend,” Mr Knaggs said. “The biggest worry in the meat industry is if the virus gets into the supply chain and the supply chain shuts down. We can’t go out into the paddock and kill our own product so basically if one of those links in the chain breaks, we’re all going to suffer.” He says this brutally illustrates an almost total lack of local food

production, with the food industry centralised and vulnerable. “Everything’s got bigger and there’s so many more trucks around, we pull from four different states and about 10 different abattoirs and the ones in Queensland are down to two days a week because of the floods, half the abattoirs in NSW are shut because there’s no work and while Victoria’s meatworks are going flat out they’re in a state of emergency so we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow,” he said. However COVID-19 crisis plays out, Mr Knaggs predicts businesses and individuals will have to enter a new world of personal and corporate hygiene. “This is a test on everyone, not just me, it’s every single staff member,” he said. “We’ve got signs out there everywhere, wash your hands every 15 minutes, wash your hands when you leave the toilet, before you walk into the workroom, what we’re trying to emphasise is that if we’ve got really good hand hygiene, that should stop any contamination in its tracks, that’s what we’re working on. “It’s incredible how many times you unintentionally touch your face – we’ve got a sign out there that says if you touch your face then you’ve got to wash your hands. The first two or three days everyone was going oh, not again. If you kept a log of how many times you touch your face you would be amazed,” he said.

OPINION & ANALYSIS

LETTERS & FEEDBACK

THE TOONS’ VIEWS

More progress needed on ‘embedded discrimination’ The Editor, The controversial email circulated by Dubbo regional councillor Kevin Parker recently (reported in Dubbo Photo News, March 5, “Petition calls for Councillor to resign over ‘racist’ email”) has highlighted a level of embedded discrimination against dark-skinned people that exists across our society. Discrimination and prejudice against dark-skinned people has been around since biblical times. Those entrenched mindsets have influenced every generation since in ways that defy logic but are deeply and subliminally imbedded. I’ve witnessed it in my lifetime in Dubbo with discrimination against Aboriginal people commonplace across wide sections of the community. Cr Parker has argued that it was simply a piece of harmless fun, a joke. And, let’s face it, political correctness is making us a very drab and dull society. The fun police are really sticking it up us.

But there’s nothing funny about the embedded societal connotations of Cr Parker’s email. Would this so-called joke work at all if it was not aimed at dark-skinned people? Why is it that among a significant percentage of the Australian population views like these are supported and encouraged? Australians of every stripe have made great progress in recent times. We are in my view the greatest nation on earth. But there is still an underlying division that is mentally undermining our children from being equal participants in society. While ever stereotypical views of dark-skinned people persist in our society, our children can never advance on an equal footing. Our dark-skinned kids can, and are, doing great things and they need to be seen no differently than anyone else. Dubbo’s mayor Ben Shields unwittingly reinforced the stereotypical views towards darkskinned people while condemning

Cr Parker in the media recently. In a report published in the print media on March 18 the mayor was quoted as saying, “Dubbo in general over the past couple of years has put so many runs on the board when it comes to Aboriginal relations, whether it be the Bill Ferguson statue to campaigning for better social outcomes to even the drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre.” In my view, in that statement the mayor subliminally expressed the view the proposed drug and alcohol centre for Dubbo was aimed primarily at Aboriginal people. He was intimating he was doing them

and the wider community a favour by supporting this facility for better social outcomes for the city. A similar mindset exists among other government agencies, in particular the one I recently worked for, coordinating apprenticeships and traineeships. It is policy in that government organisation that Aboriginal people are identified and immediately categorised as being at high risk of not completing their training. I suggested to management that this practice was discriminatory. My argument was, why does being Aboriginal immediately deem you to be less capable of complet-

ing your training? I was told not to make waves and to just let it go, the rules are the rules and that’s how it is. And that’s the sad fact, Aboriginal and other dark-skinned people are deemed to be less competent by sections of government and society. How can we expect darkskinned people to achieve the same or better than others in our society if our expectations of them are the same as Cr Parker’s and the mayor’s? Or is it perhaps the questionable truth that, we don’t? Steve Hodder, Dubbo

Holden’s Aussie demise was the inevitable result Greg Smart ❚ OPINION

THE announcement that Holden was withdrawing from the Australian car market was presented by the media as a huge shock and the death of an Aussie icon, but it was a pragmatic and inevitable result that should have surprised no one. Up to the early 2000s, Holden was the number 1 brand in Australia, riding high on the back of Australia’s long term love of large cars. In 2003 it had over 40 per cent of the 200,000 per annum large car market, and still traded on the “Football, Meat Pies, Kangaroos and Holden Cars” marketing from the ‘70s. The Holden versus Ford tribalism was fuelled by motor racing rivalry and family nostalgia about what car brand they grew up with. The locally built Commodore model was still the typical family car, and the Australian government and General Motors (Holden’s American parent company) continued their financial backing of Australian vehicle manufacturing. Ten years later, past the Global Financial Crisis of the late 2000s, the taste of Australian buyers had changed, as had the appetite of the General Motors boardroom in Detroit for propping up the Australian arm of their company.

Australian buyers were now succumbing to the ‘lifestyle’ marketing lure of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs – taller, higher riding wagons) and sales of large family cars like the Holden Commodore were falling rapidly. Holden was able to sell the Commodore in the USA and the Middle East for a short period, but the world had moved on from large sedans and wagons and embraced the SUV. Holden’s response to the SUV demand could not have been worse. Instead of building a SUV model in Australia, it manufactured the small sized Cruze, at a time when the small car market was beginning to shrink. General Motors also miscalculated when they popped a Holden badge on uncompetitive poor quality models, built in one of the other places in its global empire. Holden’s main competitors were on the ascendancy. Toyota became the number one selling make in 2003, and has been extending its lead ever since. Its sales plan was to identify every segment it wanted to compete in and dominate everyone. Ford came out of the GFC a leaner company, still with product issues, but more financially secure than General Motors. 2017 saw the closure of Holden manufacturing in Australia, shortly after the Coalition government declared motor industry subsidies as corporate welfare gone too far, with Treasurer Hockey goading Holden to declare its intentions to ‘either be here or not’. An offer of a $1 billion government subsidy to

` Nostalgia on its own wasn’t enough to get buyers into these Holden showrooms anymore... a continue manufacturing was not enough to encourage General Motors to keep its Australian factories open. In 2019 Holden just managed to scrape into the top 10 brands, selling just over 43,000 cars. The writing was on the wall. In the global General Motors empire, Holden was an outlier with a diminishing business case in a car market with multiple issues. Australia is a right-hand-drive country at the far end of the globe in a predominately left-hand-drive world. The Australian car market is small in global terms (about 1 million new vehicles a year) and over-subscribed with too many brands completing for those. The excess of competing brands is a consequence of the Button Car Plan of the mid 1980s – the Hawke government scheme to consolidate the car manufacturing industry and lower import tariffs on

Profit margins are thin, and cashflow is needed to pay for expensive floorspace. Without a competitive product range to offer, there was no motivation for prospective buyers to enter a dealership. Nostalgia on its own wasn’t enough to get buyers into these Holden showrooms anymore. The days of buying a Holden because your family had one when you were growing up are long gone. The plethora of excellent Japanese and Korean cars available and European luxury cars bought on low interest finance helped sever that link. And it was doubtful that many of the members of the various Holden clubs interviewed by the media after the withdrawal announcement have bought a new Holden recently. Even the ‘race on Sunday, sell on Monday’ of days past doesn’t resonate anymore, with V8 Supercars having no connection with what was available in the showroom. The withdrawal of Holden is sad for the staff and the dealers, but this the free market writ large. There was always going to be winners and losers, and for many, Holden was an unexpected loser. But at the end of the day the numbers just did not stack up to the Detroit masters, and even icons had to pay their way. And by the way, the “Football, Meat Pies, Kangaroos and Holden cars” jingle was a reworded Chevrolet advertisement.

imported vehicles and expose the local manufacturers to increased competition. Thirty years later local manufacturing was completely unviable and there are more car brands in Australia than the USA, competing for a fraction of the comparative sales volume. Given that General Motors has been pulling out of the remaining right-hand-drive markets like the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan and South Africa for the last two years, the availability of righthand models from other parts of the General Motors empire to sell in Australia basically evaporated. Operating at a loss for most of the last 20 years would have made it an easy decision for General Motors to bail out of Europe. At the dealership level, large metropolitan Holden dealers that sold 200 cars a month a dozen years ago have been struggling z Greg Smart lives and works in Dubbo, recently to sell 20 cars a month. and is a keen observer of current affairs.

WELLINGTON NEWS WELL-EARNED TITLE

Electorate’s Woman of the Year By NATALIE LEWIS PIP Smith loves Wellington and says her community work in the town is just part of being a good citizen. Born and bred in the local area, Mrs Smith has also raised her own family in the district and said helping others comes naturally to her. “It becomes second nature. When you have kids, you realise that in small communities, everyone needs to pitch in and lend a hand.” Given her charitable nature, Mrs Smith was taken by surprise to be named as the Dubbo Electorate Woman of the Year last week. “I thought I was following up on a community heath matter with the Dubbo MP Dugald Saunders,” she explained. Instead, he congratulated her on the well-deserved award. “Pip Smith’s years of commitment to making Wellington a better place to live has been rewarded,” Mr Saunders said. “She is involved in so many groups and events in Wellington and this award is my way of saying thank you to her for all of her efforts,” he said. Mrs Smith said, “It was quite overwhelming, and I was very humbled.” She attributes her generosity to the influence of her parents, Sue and Graham Martin.

“Growing up in Wellington, my parents were a huge part of the community. It’s just who you are.” As a mother of five, local farmer and business owner, Mrs Smith has helped out in a multitude of sporting and community areas over the years. “Soccer and swimming club, rugby, eisteddfod... You try and do everything to support all the clubs.” Mrs Smith believes that all small towns need the support of their communities. “You just dig in and help, you just want to help,” she said. “And doing something for the right reasons. “I hope that I’m instilling that in my children. It takes a community to raise a child so everyone needs to look out for each other. The more you give, the more you get back.” Despite being involved in a range of organisations, Mrs Smith doesn’t feel any different to the next person in terms of community representation. “There are thousands of women in the electorate and anyone could have been given this award. My friends all do the same thing. We all work as a team so it’s a little embarrassing to be singled out.” Mrs Smith believes that everyone volunteers their time and gives back when they can.

“Some people are working full time or they might feel intimidated; 99 per cent of the world are good people, everyone’s time for giving back is different.” Her latest community cause is a Facebook page called ‘It’s all about Wellington’ which she started a few months ago. In light of the coronavirus crisis, it also happens to be very timely. “It’s all about connecting to services, keeping an eye on people, particularly the elderly. Volunteering to get in touch, check on people, get some groceries. There might be people falling through the cracks.” Spoken like the true humanitarian that she is. Pip Smith’s community involvement includes: z Former Wellington councillor z Former St Mary’s P and F president z Current chair of Wellington Local Health Council z Vice president of Wellington CWA z Committee and life member of Wellington Swim Club z Secretary of Western Area Swimming z Minute-taker for the Wellington branch of NSW Farmers z Registrar and committee member of Wellington Eisteddfod z Bodangora Community Fund consultative committee member

Pip Smith has been named the Dubbo electorate’s Woman of the Year. The common consensus amongst Wellington people is that it couldn’t have gone to anyone more deserving.

A bedframe in the river is why we need Clean Up Australia Contributed by WESTERN PADDLERS NSW POSSIBLY the most unusual find in the Macquarie River during Clean Up Australia Day was a bed frame! More than 20 people coordinated by the Western Paddlers NSW and the Wellington Progress and Action Group helped clean up Wellington and the Macquarie River with Clontarf at Wellington High School, community members and with support of the Dubbo Regional Council. Some participants were also up early to do the Platypus Survey (organised by Wambangalang Environmental Education Centre) beforehand!

Thumbs Up to the midwives and staff at Dubbo Base Hospital in Maternity for your care and understanding to our daughter-in-law who had to travel to Australia for a safe delivery of her son. To be away from her husband and parents was very stressful, but your care helped and made it easier for her and the newborn’s Australian grandparents. From Hong Kong to Dubbo, our sincere thanks. (Ed’s note: The full story on this Thumbs Up is in today’s paper.)

Dubbo South Public School Aboriginal students to fly high in reading and numeracy Contributed by NATALIE POLAK AS the rain fell quietly on Tuesday, March 3, 47 Year 3 to Year 6 Aboriginal students launched the Budyaan Program with their family members in Dubbo South Public School’s Community Room. Budyaan means ‘birds’ in Wiradjuri language. The title was chosen by the program’s participants out of respect for their cultural identity, and to describe how they hope this learning program impacts their future. “The children chose the symbol of birds because the program aims to support them to find their wings and soar in reading, numeracy and life beyond school,” program coordinator Deputy Principal Instructional Leader Natalie Polak said. “We want to improve our learning so we can fly fast, far and high in life,” Zakory Seymour said. Students were selected for the program based on their solid literacy and numeracy skills. “Dubbo South Public School is committed to meeting the Premier’s Priority to ‘closing the gap’ by supporting our Aboriginal students to perform in the top two bands of NAPLAN for reading and numeracy,” principal Sharon Murray said. “As an educational community we have high expectations of all our learners irrespective of cultural backgrounds. This program is designed to trail blaze high-impact systems and to accelerate our Aboriginal students’ growth.” Whilst the learning program is funded by the NSW Government’s Department of Education: Aboriginal Education and Communities, it is the students

themselves who are the designers. “This program is being co-created by the students,” Mrs Polak said. “We are trying to strengthen our students’ agency by giving them voice and choice in the program’s creation.” All students were asked to design a logo for the program. The brief was to connect their identities as Aboriginal students, with the symbol of birds flying high. Stage 2 and 3 teachers voted on the finalists and Year 4 student Tiahni Weekes’ design was chosen as the winner. As well as listening to the students’ ideas, Mrs Polak will be drawing on the expertise of Student Learning Support Officers, Mrs Sally Gesler, Elder Mrs Brenda Lake, as well as the Stage 2 and 3 teachers to experiment with different classroom practices and resources to offer engaging, inclusive and high growth learning experiences for the targeted students. “I am excited to see what I am capable of as a learner,” Rylee Hartas said.

A big cheque to remind everyone to do the big check Despite the cancellation of the Melanoma March which had been planned for Dubbo last Saturday, March 21, fundraising efforts went ahead online. The event had to be called off due to social distancing recommendations. As reported in Dubbo Photo News over the past four months, including our cover on December 12, the March was being organised by local volunteers who wanted to support the Melanoma Institute of Australia and its ‘Game On Mole’ campaign. Since then, Macquarie Credit Union has been raising awareness of ‘Game On Mole’, a call to action campaign encouraging everyone to check regularly for changes to their skin, especially moles. One of the local volunteer organisers, Gary Beggs, is pictured front and centre with Macquarie Credit Union staff and a big cheque which has been donated to the campaign. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Big rolls of loo paper: This sign at IGA in South Dubbo says it all. They weren’t able to get stock of ‘normal’ toilet paper, but these aren’t normal times. So they were selling 300-metre rolls, a bit like the ones used in those big dispensers in public toilets. PHOTO: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS/JOHN RYAN

Cars and Company By KEN SMITH WHO knew that something so simple could turn out to be a much-needed tonic for a handful of locals and visitors? Despite the cancellation of the Running on Empty Festival which was meant to run in Dubbo last weekend, the smiles and the banter was so good to see amongst those people who still decided to go for a drive. Social distancing,

while observed, made way for a bunch of like-minded people talking, having a laugh and sharing their passion for their wheels. Yes, all the current social gathering rules were observed. Next stop after a short cruise was Dubbo Westview Drive-in for a quick photo shoot as the fading light provided a fitting canopy of colour. For a couple of hours, normality returned and it was very good.

PUZZLE EXTRA GO FIGURE

Glad to be turning 101! By KEN SMITH

DUBBO Photo News had the pleasure of catching up with this beautiful young lady and we were told to keep

the date free to join her next year for cake and a chat. Happy 101st Birthday Glad Williams, pictured here with family and friends recently at Dahab Café Dubbo.

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

SUDOKU EXTRA

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

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

ODDS, ENDS & INSPIRATION STRANGE BUT TRUE z In 1883, Bill Kinsman of Tombstone, Arizona, was the subject of a practical joke when the Tombstone Epitaph announced his intention to marry one May Woodman. The surprised future groom countered with a notice of his own that he had no such plans whatsoever – and was soon after shot to death by the deeply humiliated Ms. Woodman. z “Cenosillicaphobia” is the fear of an empty beer glass. (Use this one to impress your friends during Happy Hour.) z Turning back the giant hands on Big Ben’s four clock faces takes an astonishing total of five hours. z Alexandre Dumas, best known for “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”, felt very strongly that all his works

must be presented on coloured paper. He wanted all his fiction presented on blue paper, his articles on pink paper and his poetry on yellow paper. z Golf balls were originally made from dried cow eyeballs. z The tea bag was an accidental invention. In 1908, tea merchant Thomas Sullivan distributed his samples in small silken sacks. His customers, not realising they were samples, dunked them in hot water, and Sullivan soon found himself swamped with orders for his “tea bags”! z In his travels, Marco Polo believed at one point that he had stumbled across unicorns, writing that, “They are very ugly brutes to look at. They are not at all such as we describe unicorns.” Not surprising, considering that he was actually viewing rhinoceroses.

z Ancient Romans created black hair dye by fermenting leeches in vinegar.

NOW HERE’S A TIP z Turn on the hot water for three or four minutes to loosen debris on shower walls. It’s much easier to clean when the tile is warm and steamy (water restrictions permitting). z Here’s a great storage solution: screw a metal magazine holder to the inside of a cabinet door. Do this in the bathroom to store a hair dryer or other hair tools. In the kitchen, it makes a wonderful holder for smaller pot lids or foil, wax paper, parchment, etc. z Manners check: “If you are getting into line at a shop, it’s time to end your call. When you try to continue your phone conversation, it

means the cashier can’t effectively communicate with you and you risk holding up the line. If the call is that important, just wait until you end it to get in line. Thank you!” – M.R. z When arranging your fridge, keep the better choices at eye level and easy to grab. z Get rid of smelly stains on your cutting board with a lemon. Use the cut side of a lemon to scrub your plastic or wood board. For a little extra scrub, sprinkle the lemon with salt. Rinse and air dry. z “To reach the highest cobweb or the lowest dust bunnies, get a yardstick or broom handle and cover one end with an old tube sock. Use a rubber band to secure it to the stick and you can use it to swipe at the high corners of your rooms or slide it under the furniture. Works like a charm.” – E.T.

...inspiring locals!

SHOW JUMPING

Hannah says the Coronavirus sucks By GEOFF MANN FOR an aspiring show jumper, March to July should be the most exciting time of the year. The local and regional shows, major events across the state and a chance to test yourself against the best on horseback are the reasons Hannah Luffman gets out of bed each day. The 18-year-old Dubbo College HSC student is devastated by cancellations due to the coronavirus outbreak. “The thing I look forward to most has been taken away from me. I know it is across all sports and all of our country but it still hurts a lot,” Hannah shared with Dubbo Photo News. Since taking up the sport as a 14-year-old after meeting former Olympic training squad member Dale Frew at Brocklehurst, Hannah has been hooked. “I had been riding around our small farm near Geurie since I was about 8, but then Mum and Dad took me out to join the Dubbo Eventing and Showjumping Club and the world of showjumping opened up. “I met Dale and we formed an immediate bond. She has been my mentor and support ever since,” Hannah spoke with obvious respect. “Dale took me to Canberra for an event and we’ve been sharing ideas ever since. She’s taught me how to work with my young horses and school them in the skills

of jumping. She’s always offering tips on my technique and gives me plenty of tips on how to improve.” The young rider showed promise from the start and quickly moved from Pony Club to local shows and then major events at places like Canberra, Wagga and the Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre (AELEC) at Tamworth. “Normally around this time we would be on the road most weeks competing in events and catching up with friends, but this situation has changed everything,” Hannah said. Like most young sporting cham-

pions, Hannah leads a busy life, balancing school work and horses. “My usual week is feeding, grooming and riding my two thoroughbreds every second day. It’s mostly on the flat and in the sand enclosure at Geurie Showground but on Sundays I work on jumping with Dale. It is so much fun. “We’ve been aiming to increase our heights. Currently I am jumping at 1.25-1.3 metres and I’m getting more confident all the time.” Hannah says that her young horses take a while to adjust. “I have to take them along nicely, neatly as they adjust to what is being asked of them,” she said.

The news that the Olympics have been postponed has added to Hannah’s woes. “I love the excitement of the Games. These are the very best in the world and the way they prepare is amazing.” Hannah follows some of the best show jumpers on social media. “Edwina Tops-Alexander is our leading showjumper and amongst the best in the world so her insights are fascinating. It is so interesting to watch how she goes about things in training and leading up to competing in the ring,” Hannah smiled. Rowan Wilkinson is anoth-

er high profile athlete Hannah follows. “Watching them working out inspires me. It makes me want to be the best I can be by creating good habits,” the insightful 18-year-old commented. What’s happening now? “Well, I feel very flat at the moment. I really get motivated when I have things to prepare for and now the shows are off, it’s hard to get going. I guess we’ll just let the young horses out in the paddock for a while. The break will freshen them up and then we can get them back in and hope they haven’t forgotten what they’ve learned.” Hannah is also philosophical about the situation. “I’ll be able to catch up on some chores I’ve been putting off,” she laughed. “Things like laundry and maintenance I’ve been putting off will now get a run, I suppose!” Hannah is not sure what will happen with her part-time job in a cafe. Like so many students, she relies on the money to buy the things she likes. “I probably need to be more frugal; keep asking myself, ‘Do I really need it?’ Might save some money on petrol too, travelling in and out of Dubbo to do my job and socialise.” Hannah Luffman is a fine young person growing up at a time when the world seems so unreal. She is tough and resilient and no doubt will prosper from the experiences of the next few months.

NO.1 OVAL

The changing face of our “old lady” By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL Queen Victoria left her mark across the globe, including at our historical premier sporting ground. ‘Victoria Park’ as a headline carried the hint of the regal; the bylines – No.1, No.2 and No.3 – ensured it retained its common roots! Over the past 150 years or so the old girl has seen horses, bikes, athletes, footballers of all codes, cricketers and a plethora of famous sportspeople grace the turf and cinder-then-bitumen cycle track. Mel’s photos capture the latest iteration. The track is gone, cyclists now competing at a place of their own in North Dubbo; the outfield has been ripped up and turf relayed at the new complex around the new cycling complex; the entire field has been levelled, new drainage installed and in a short period of time, the world class utility ground will be ready for the latest generation of union, league, AFL players and cricketers. She may be a grand old lady but there is a huge amount of life in Vic!

Ben Knaggs – a true all-rounder By GEOFF MANN IN what may well be a unique record in our city, Ben Knaggs has led two sporting teams to premierships back-to back. In late August the dynamic running forward was up front in the Kangaroos Colts’ stunning upset against Bathurst in the Central West Grand Final in September. The Roos hopped into the Bulldog’s kennel and stole the “bone” with the representative experience and lead-from-the-front efforts of “Knaggsy” hailed by all the experts. Less than a month later, the immensely talented all-rounder tugged on his CYMS cap and led the Cougars onto Victoria Park for the first round of Whitney Cup cricket. CYMS’ stellar season was rewarded when the Whitney Cup was handed to them by

Dubbo Cricket Association President Jeff Shanks, despite there being no finals series. Ben and his team hung onto a narrow lead going into the last round of the competition and, despite being in big trouble against RSL Colts on a rain-affected pitch, held on for a draw and earned a spot in the final. History will show that CYMS took their first Whitney Cup in over a decade with arguably the competition’s youngest “elder statesman” at the helm. Ben’s hopes of a return to the rugby fields have been dashed along with all the other winter codes but if he doesn’t get back to playing this season, he will look back on 2019/20 as the time he led two different clubs to famous premierships.

HARNESS RACING

Dubbo Harness Club trots off By GEOFF MANN IN another blow to our community, Len Edwards and Dubbo Harness Racing Club have been forced to cancel the annual Easter meeting. Mr Edwards and his committee had been working closely with Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) officials to ensure the sport remained viable and to enable local supporters to maintain their ani-

mals in work. “In this incredible time of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we are following government guidelines to ensure the safety of our participants and patrons. We had plans to run our Easter Cup in accordance with the HRNSW guidelines but the announcement on Tuesday afternoon put an end to that,” Len said. “Our committee and the wonderful racing community will

take this in our stride and make every effort to maintain virtual contact via social media and the like. We went through some hard times with the Equine Flu and

came back stronger than ever, so as long as we all do our bit and our friends remain in good health we will be very happy,” the always optimistic President said.

Gular Galahs celebrate 40 years DESPITE the shutdown of sports and now clubs and pubs, the Gulargambone Rugby Club managed to have a virtual celebration of its 40th year in the Western Plains competition. A video compiled by local photographer Hugh Beveridge in tandem with Joe Merino and Brad Haling Music captures the spirit of the club north of Dubbo. It is another example of our talented, enthusiastic rugby boys and girls who are able to turn any situation to a positive. There is no doubt the celebrations will go ahead, maybe for the start of the 41st season in 2021. Check out the spirit of the Galahs on Youtube or via the Gulargambone Rugby Club Facebook page.

Classic Wallabies on hold IN another blow to western sport, the proposed visit of up to 30 retired Wallabies to Coonamble has been postponed. The “Classics” have been working with Coonamble Rams and Western Plains for what would be arguably the greatest gathering of rugby talent in the town. The match against a selected XV was to be preceded by round one of the new season. If that match, between premiers Coonamble and last year’s minor premiers Warren Rams, went ahead with all of the passion of the dramatic season-ending, final seconds of an overtime grand final, it would have been the perfect curtain raiser!

OUTBACK DRAGONS DUBBO

Beaches, Bridges and Bays win for Dubbo By YVETTE AUBUSSON-FOLEY

THIRTY members of the Outback Dragons Dubbo plus five spectators competed in Tasmania over the weekend in Derwent River Beaches, Bridges and Bays marathon, nabbing an equal first win over a field of seven boats. On Saturday March 14 a fleet of dragon boats entered the water at Lindisfarne Rowing Club with rowers from Bendigo, Gold Coast, Mudgee, Orange, Bathurst and Dubbo to compete over a 42-kilometre course. “On the Saturday we rowed from Lindisfarne Yacht Club, under the main bridge in Hobart, all the way to Constitutional Dock, past the Italian Cruise Liner there which noone’s allowed to get off, and back again,” member Chris Robinson told Dubbo Photo News. “All up we did 28 kilometres and both the Dubbo boats finished equal first,” Each boat carries 20 rowers. “Among our teams we had three paddlers from Trangie, Dave Quigley, Hugh Irving and Scott McDougall, plus Mark Boucher from Narromine,” Mrs Robinson said. On Sunday March 15 Dubbo was again victorious with a first and second place in a four-kilometre mini regatta.

The Beaches, Bridges and Bays race was hosted by the Derwent Storms Boat Club. Outback Dragons Dubbo are a sporting and social dragon boat club catering for paddlers with a range of fitness and skill levels from beginners to experienced sports paddlers, for 12 years of age and up. Outback Dragons Dubbo ‘Dragons Abreast’ paddlers, paddle in the sporting team but also form their own composite teams to paddle against other breast cancer survivors at regattas. Everyone in the club is committed to supporting breast cancer survivors and raising awareness of breast cancer related issues.

SPORT TIME WARP

Macquarie 1959, ‘79, 2000 By GEOFF MANN A NEW coach, the return of some familiar faces and a revitalised junior base has Macquarie Raiders rugby league fans salivating. The club adopted the famous Blue guernseys of the original Dubbo team when it formed as Macquarie to accommodate CYMS’ entry into Group 11 in 1958. In 1960 the Blues were supreme, taking the second of three successive premierships under future Balmain coach Leo Nosworthy. In 1979 the little general, Noel Sing, who’d taken Macquarie to five consecutive grand finals, was hoisted high when the club clinched only the third – and last – three-team premierships in one day. By 2000 the club

was in the depths of a premiership drought. It was ironic that it broke – literally – with a downpour that created one of Group 11’s greatest moments. Fullback Brett Chippendale landed a last-minute field goal, somehow piloting a heavy ball out of the quagmire to steal a one-point win against Narromine. Jim Kelly was the coach at the turn of the century, brilliant back Warren Wilson the on-field leader, and a jubilant former Australian captain, coach and Rugby League Immortal, Bob Fulton, sideline to cheer on son Scott. Will the Raiders salute again in 2020? Will they even play in 2020? The next six months will answer that question. 1979 1st Grade: Back row, Brian Watts, Kerry Beazley (trainer), Mark Heffron, Monty Amos, Bruce Neads, Marshall Peachey, middle, Colin Lane, Brian Clarke, Tom Barrow, Robert Atkins, Mark “Bomber” Forrester, Steve Hall, front row, Kimball Riley, Fred Harvey, Noel Sing (c/c), Mar.

SPORT Top left: Dave Sparkes – still talking underwater! Top right: John Wherritt about to create ripples in the still pond! Far left: Rob Rich and Greg Salmon auditioning for MAFS! Left center: Stalwart Tony Wall Left: “I’m tellin’ ya, it was this big.” El Presidente Henry Wilcockson talking about the fish he wished he had caught!

“Ladies on the Pond” – the well-used phrase of the shearing sheds!

Roger Mackay (standing) and the gaggle of Ducks listen intently as Henry expands on his tall fishing tales. Actually, the Preso was explaining what was likely to happen with future events given the impending closure of the pool.

SWIMMING

Ducks’ 60th Anniversary Championships By GEOFF MANN Photos by MEL POCKNALL THE Dubbo Veterans Swimming Club has been forced into an early end to their championships following the closure of their favourite pond. Despite the impending closure, spirits were high on Sunday as week three of the sought after chase for points continued. “It is not what any of us would have hoped for but we are realistic and understand the need to protect our community,” Club Secretary Lynda Walsh told me. “This club was actually formed in 1960, primarily to provide an outlet for our ex-servicemen to come together on weekends. It has been a lifesaver for many blokes over the

years and in the past decade or so we’ve seen an influx of women and youngsters. These include females who have served as well as friends and partners of our members which has made it a much more inclusive and welcoming group,” Lynda added. We have featured some of the grandchildren of long-serving Ducks over the years, swimming alongside – and in many instances, straight past – their elders! “On a lighter note, Roger Mackay was late coming to the blocks for the 25m breaststroke and didn’t look or listen to the programme. He swam half the distance freestyle with everyone shouting at him. Consequence – DQ!

“Better go to SpecSavers old fella! “And our injured Duckette, Judy Walsh, is still bravely looking over proceedings from the pool deck and remaining dry,” Lynda reported. Results, March 8 z 50m br – David Sparkes, Tom Gray (2), Brian Schloeffel (3), Robert Rich (4), Glenn Smith (5) z 2x25m Fr – Garry Giddings/ Reg Ferguson, Henry Wilcockson/Glenn Smith (2), Mark Scullard/Craig Ross (3), Brian Schloeffel/Marg Ross (4), Tom Gray/Dave Sparkes (5) Results, March 13 z 2x25m breast relay – Reg Ferguson/Brian Schloeffel, Laken Carrett/Nicole Johnstone (2), Mark Scullard/Ruby Rooke (3),

Queen’s Cup and 60th Anniversary celebrations postponed SADLY the much anticipated Diamond Jubilee weekend celebrations and Queen’s Cup meeting have had to be postponed. “It is disappointing but essential that everyone stays fit and healthy in these troubling times,” Secretary Lynda Walsh said. “It’s a shame to have to defer our club titles because the intrigue has been building with the RSL Championship 25m Over 60 years and RSL 50m freestyle Under 60 years races were swum on Sunday and everyone is keen to hear the results which are sealed until our Presentation at some time in the future,” Lynda added.
