PLENTY TO BE THANKFUL FOR

COMMENT by JOHN RYAN SENIOR REPORTER

NEVER has Australia faced such uncertainty but despite a small percentage of toilet paper hoarders, and those attacking bottle shops like there’s no tomorrow, Australians are handling things pretty much in their stride and playing to their strengths. Sixteen-year-old Brock Deveson was set to represent Australia for the first time this weekend at a tri-nation’s motocross meet in Vic-

toria, but it’s been called off. He’s personally devastated but says it’s incredibly insignificant compared to the millions of serious challenges facing people right across Australia. At home from school on a 25-acre block on Dubbo’s outskirts, he says he’s so lucky he can do his schoolwork in peace and know that when it’s done, he can practise on a track he built with his dad and brothers just out the back of their house. “We’ve got so much to be thankful for,” he told Dubbo Photo News.

On that subject, Dubbo Photo News is also thankful that so many of our advertisers having kept supporting us, even though many businesses are themselves trying to work through the most volatile time in our nation’s history. Rest assured we’ll continue to keep on bringing all the health information directly to you via the paper and the Dubbo Photo News Facebook page – vetted by local, professional journalists – just when accuracy is most needed, and when there’s so much disinformation fly-

ing around on social media. We’re also working with local businesses to deliver innovative advertising strategies so, as local businesses, we can survive this crisis together. Never has the need to think local, buy local and support local been more obvious, or more important, and as the city’s only locally-owned news outlet, Dubbo Photo News is proud to be here to highlight all the good that’s generated by local residents.

37 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Western Health region By JOHN RYAN

AS of 10am yesterday (April 1), Western NSW Local Health District had 37 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The health service is reporting cases by Local Government areas. Numbers confirmed in the Dubbo Regional Council area remained unchanged since the previous day at six, with one in Narromine and another at Warren. A health spokesperson said it was critical that everyone in all local communities continued to practice social distancing to minimise the risk of the transmission of COVID-19. “This is important for everyone, but particularly for older people and people with health conditions that make them more vulnerable,” the statement said. “It’s also important that we protect our health care workers who we need to stay well to provide care to people who become sick with COVID-19. “The best thing everyone can do at this point is to stay at home unless it is absolutely essential.” Meantime, Westhaven confirmed to Dubbo Photo News that its client who had been in Dubbo Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit last week suffering from COVID-19 had left the ICU and was in a stable condition.

COMMUNITY

Brand backs anti-bullying campaign By LYDIA PEDRANA IN time when kindness, happiness and solidarity is needed most, Dubbo kids clothing brand Arli Barli has teamed up with a group of creatives from around Australia to send a powerful message in the trendiest way possible. Next month, the label will release matching mum and daughter leggings made from a bright, fun fabric created by Brisbane-based designer, Kasey Rainbow, with 15 per cent of profits going to social inclusion, not-forprofit charity, Friend In Me. The campaign titled You Can Sit Here is the brainchild of Ms Rainbow who has brought 13 makers, including Arli Barli, on board to produce products out of her superhero-inspired fabric and make a stand against bullying. For Ali Harrod, the founder of Arli Barli, raising awareness about anti-bullying and advocating for social inclusion is a personal and emotional topic. “Bullying upsets me a lot, it’s something I find is really important because it shapes so much of the rest of a kid’s life, and not even just children get bullied, but it is unfortunately such a huge part of some people’s lives,” she told Dubbo Photo News. “As a kid I was bullied, so I think I understand that.” Amid the COVID-19 crisis the world is currently dealing with, Mrs Harrod feels kindness and inclusion is now more important

than ever. “We are all in this together,” she said of the pandemic. “And I’ve got two little boys,

they are four and five, and I said to my husband, I don’t care how well they do at school, I just care that they are nice people and they

treat people well. “That just is important to me.” Mrs Harrod started Arli Barli five years ago when her eldest son was three months old and she was on maternity leave. Specialising in beautifully patterned rompers, bibs, shirts and shorts for babies and selling mainly through Facebook and Instagram, Mrs Harrod handmakes all Arli Barli pieces in her makeshift home factory. “Everything is made out of my spare bedroom,” she laughed, “We have a little office that I’ve set up with my sewing machine and my overlocker and that’s my little space. “I do it all from home while the kids sleep mostly.” With her job as an optical dispenser now on hold due to the coronavirus, Mrs Harrod will have more time to focus on her side hustle. And while many small businesses are beginning to feel the economic effects of the global situation, Mrs Harrod said the Arli Barli community had been incredibly supportive. “This week has been amazing, I’ve had so many people message me wanting to order and show their support for small business, which is amazing.” Available from April 25, to purchase a pair of You Can Sit Here leggings, visit @arlibarli on Instagram or search Arli Barli on Facebook.

Dubbo Photo News April 2-8, 2020

Riding out the coronavirus storm By JOHN RYAN DUBBO mum Holly Deveson is getting used to a world that’s very different from the one she existed in less than a month ago but said she’s won the lottery compared to many other people who’ve been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. While Aussies are getting laid off in their tens of thousands, she’s counting her blessings at the moment. She works for a government department and she’s currently performing that role from home because of the social distance imperatives, where everyone who can possibly work from home has been urged to leave their workplaces. “At the moment I’m home-schooling a 16-year-old and an 11-yearold so it’s challenging at times, we’re all doing our best, trying to get things done as we can,” Mrs Deveson said. “I’m working from home and also trying to help the boys with their schoolwork, it’s a bit of a juggle but so far we’re all going okay.” Her three sons are elite motocross riders and she says living out of town is an ideal situation given the current circumstances. “We are very fortunate to have a motorbike track we built behind our house on our 25-acre block so the kids are able to go outside after they’ve done their schoolwork and ride with each other to let off some steam, and it means they’re continuing with their exercise. “It must be very difficult for people confined to a house or unit – having very active boys, I think

being cooped up inside all day would be really difficult, we are lucky that we can get outside and the boys can still ride their bikes,” she said. A month ago life was normal, now everyone’s almost locked down in their own homes, with federal and state government guidelines aimed at keeping people away from each other, backed up by new police powers that are alien to Australia’s traditional easy-going way of life. She’s upset for 16-year-old Brock

who was set to compete in the Australian team against France and New Zealand in the FIM Oceania Junior Motocross Tri-Nations Cup. “We were booked in to go to Horsham this weekend for Brock to compete in a tri-nation’s event. He was riding for the Australian team but it’s been postponed. Motorcycling Australia and NSW have postponed all their events so they’re not able to do their usual competition rides, but still being able to ride at home has been a blessing for us,” she said.

A year 10 student, Brock said missing out on his Australian representative debut was a huge blow, but he’s philosophical about it. “I’m pretty devastated, I was really looking forward to represent Australia but everyone’s got to do what they’ve got to do at the moment, there’s so many people who are worse off than me,” Brock said. “Hopefully the event will still get run at some time.” At 16, he says motorbikes are pretty much his life and his world, yet he understands there’s a much

bigger picture when it comes to the fall-out from the global Coronavirus pandemic. “It’s affecting a lot of people all around the world. “We’re lucky enough to have a track to train on at home so we still get to ride – if I didn’t have the track behind the house I’d probably be insane and mum would probably go insane looking after us,” he said. He said he’ll use the time to further improve his riding skills. “We’ve still got to stay fit and stuff, so we’ll do that.” 11-year-old Jack Deveson couldn’t stop smiling during the photoshoot and said he couldn’t say he hated missing school. “Not really,” he laughed. The Year 6 student said he feels sorry for his mates who’ll be house-bound, many of whom normally spend weekends and school holidays racing around the Deveson’s motocross track. “It feels pretty good to be able to still do my sport, we can still ride bikes and train, most kids wouldn’t have this,” Jack said. “I play a little bit of computer games but I’m more outside and on the bike and stuff, it’s good to be able to talk to my mates on Instagram and social media sometimes. “Mrs Deveson said every family is different, but all will be missing so much, and she believes there will be many different strategies people devise to best suit their individual circumstances. “Nobody knows what’s going to happen, I think everybody’s just trying to do the best that they can.” Rod Fardell, Coby Read, Jayden Daley, Josh Fardell, Lilly-Anne Myhill, Lucy Gillis and Kaeleigh Earsman, in a photo taken before further social distancing restrictions came into force.

Orana Heights enjoys new sporting equipment By SOPHIA ROUSE FITNESS fanatic and parent Rod Fardell has generously donated colourful dye and his fitness expertise to Orana Heights for the past two years at their annual colour run event. During the second last week of school last year, the students participated in activities while wearing fun sunglasses, covered in colour and cooled off with an

ice block at the end of the day. The day finished off the year with a bang and helped raise around $3500 which contributed in buying loads of new recreational equipment for the school. On Friday, March 20, some students tested out the brandnew gear which included parachutes, hoops, skipping ropes, steppingstones, tug of war ropes, frisbees, dart boards, fitness dice and balls.

Will COVID-19 effect housing market?

Get your flu shots early to avoid strain on health system

By LYDIA PEDRANA REAL estate agents across the country have been forced to change the way they do business amid the COVID-19 outbreak. With much of their work done face to face with a handshake, new restrictions around gatherings means for now, it is no longer business as usual. Jane Donald from Bob Berry Real Estate said while they do not expect the local market to feel a major hit, it will inevitably slow down. “We do not consider there will be any change on prices and stock levels in the short to medium term,” Ms Donald told Dubbo Photo News. “The issue is the market has slowed down due to the restrictions in place allowing purchasers to physically inspect property.” Similarly, Samuel Shooter from SJ Shooter Real Estate is confident Dubbo’s property market will remain stable and quickly return to normal once the pandemic has passed. “The regional markets always perform a little more steadily, that’s because prices aren’t over inflated and we don’t suffer the downturns, but we also don’t get the upswing that the metro do,” Mr Shooter said. “What we might see is the volume of sales decrease as the number of people viewing homes drops and the number of people applying for loans decreases – those factors will no doubt have an impact – but on the flip side, from everything I’m reading and learning and feel personally, that once this coronavirus lockdown is over, the market will come back quite strongly.” Government measures which have restricted gatherings to two people means real estate agencies have needed to tweak the way they conduct open for inspections and auctions. For example, only one person, or a couple living under the same roof, can be taken through a property on a private inspection with an agent, and auctions need to be conducted virtually. Colin Knight, the licensee in charge of LJ Hooker Dubbo, has ramped up his reliance on technology and said this period is all about adapting. “There are a lot of different

ways to go about doing auctions, we are lucky we have the technology that we have so we can do virtual tours to show people through, we can do online auctions, auctions by telephone, there are virtual auctions where you can send a bid in a bit like they do on eBay, so there’s a number of different ways of doing it, and time will work out which is the best and the most popular with people,” he said. He does however agree that the market will flourish once the outbreak is over. “I think that real estate and housing is a basic, fundamental requirement and it will always be needed and I think people will probably put their requirements on hold, you know, selling and buying, but I’m sure this will all be over in no time and things will bounce back and while we might have a bit of a slowdown now, I’m anticipating a bit of a rush to catch up.” This is a sentiment Blanche Robinson from Elders echoes. Ms Robinson said it’s too early to know whether prices will

plunge, but as of Tuesday this week, they were transacting properties in “acceptable and expected price brackets. “We do expect that when this crisis does pass, that we will see a good injection of renewed interest back into the real estate market as confidence grows and people look to diversify from the stock market investments,” she said. “Bricks and mortar, in my opinion, is still one of the safest longterm investments.” In fact, in Ms Robinson’s opinion, now is a good time for buyers because there is “less competition and record low interest rates.” As for rental properties, Ms Robinson said they are working with both their tenants and landlords to ensure both parties are getting the through the situation. “We are still here to support renters; we have changed the way we are renting properties offering virtual inspections or private one-on-one inspections with conditionally approved applicants,” she said. “For those house hunting, they

need to make sure their application is attractive and complete in order to secure the property.” Shayna Chapman from Bob Berry Real Estate said Government assistance packages should help soften the financial blow for both renters and landlords. “With the variety of government stimulus packages available, this will hopefully assist the majority of tenants with rental payments which will ensure the financial hardship will not just be transferred from the tenant to the owner.” Additionally, Ms Chapman reinforced how important it is for the real estate industry to continue operating. “Property transactions are vital for the economy as they have a flow on effect to other industries including conveyancers, solicitors, pest control companies, building inspectors, removalists, tradespeople, insurance companies, utility providers are just to name a few,” she said. “So, it is important that we maintain this important part of the economy.”

CHEMISTS and doctors across the Dubbo Region have begun receiving shipments of flu vaccinations but they do not protect against COVID-19. “It’s beneficial to get it done to cover the four strains of flu that effected so many people last year,” Blooms chemist Ben Cross said. The advice aligns with Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) which has issued a national request to people urging them to get their influenza vaccination from their GP earlier than usual to reduce strain on the health system caused by COVID-19. Chemist Warehouse started giving flu shots on Monday however all clinics, GP surgeries and patients must comply with current distancing restrictions. “You don’t need an appointment but it’s better if you have one because you may find yourself waiting for up to 20 minutes. You can book online or come into the store but it would be very appreciated if you intend coming in, to please give us some notice,” a Chemist Warehouse spokesperson told Dubbo Photo News. Dubbo Care Family Practice doctor Amal Tadros advised the practice has been preparing for some time in readiness for their shipment of flu vaccines which arrived on Tuesday this week. “We have a big area in the car park where people can wait. When it is their turn they will come in the back door, receive their vaccine and exit out another door, so there will only be two people in the room at the one time,” Dr Tadros said. Social distancing measures have changed how pharmacies and doctors issue the vaccines and anyone receiving their flu shot must exercise their social distancing responsibility toward those giving the vaccine and those waiting to receive it. “People over 65 or with pre-existing conditions can get it from their GP for free, but to avoid waiting or arriving at a clinic to find a lot of people doing the same, it’s recommended you go online to make your appointment or for those with no internet access, please call ahead,” Mr Cross said.

Calls to freeze beer tax amid hospitality uncertainty By LYDIA PEDRANA IN a time when tourism and hospitality sectors are already feeling the pinch amid economic uncertainty, beer industry experts have called for Australia’s beer tax to be relaxed. At the moment the tax sits at $2.26 per litre and it is hiked every six months, meaning the cost of every slab and schooner also gets more expensive twice a year. The call, led by the Brewers Association of Australia (BAA), comes after Boris Johnson froze Britain’s beer tax at $1.52 per litre last week and the Brewers’ CEO Brett Heffernan has urged the government to consider a cut to reduce the burden on sectors who are already struggling. “It’s time our politicians recognised Australia’s $2.26 beer tax, the fourth highest in the industrialised world, is grossly overthe-top and brought it into line with comparable countries, a cut would be fair and aid economic repair,” Mr Heffernan said. “Our excessively high beer tax which accounts for almost half the price of a stubby makes it harder for people to go out and enjoy a beer with their mates. “That reality places a strain on

hospitality and tourism operators already doing it tough,” he said.” In comparison, New Zealand’s beer tax is $1.26. Donald Trump froze the United States’ in 2017 at 31 cents and Germany’s beer tax is the lowest at 13 cents per litre. Nelson Kelly is partner in a number of pubs in the region

including the Castlereagh and Western Star in Dubbo and has backed the BAA position. “There’s nothing we can do it about, the customers are always having a go at us for putting the beer up but we’re not making any extra money, we’re just passing on the extra costs,” Mr Kelly told Dubbo Photo News.

“I think it (the tax) is high enough, I think it’s gone to more than enough at the moment, and if it keeps going up, our increases have to get bigger because our base price is bigger. “It’s hard enough to make a few bucks particularly at the moment, I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next three or four months.” Mr Kelly admitted the turmoil of the global coronavirus outbreak had already started to impact his businesses. “This Monday compared to last Monday was probably down 20 to 25 per cent across our seven pubs,” he said. “I don’t know how long this will go for, which is the worry”. Mr Kelly’s comment follows the news that the mayors of New York City and Los Angeles ordered restaurants, theatres, bars, cafes and cinemas to close in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. According to reports, all businesses selling food would only be able to do so via delivery or takeaway. My Kitchen Rules chef Colin Fassnidge told Channel Seven’s Morning Show that it will only be a matter of time before Australian restaurants and pubs will find themselves in the same position.

IN BRIEF

Hotline for businesses affected by COVID-19 THE Federal Government’s business hotline will give additional support to small and medium businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “With many small and medium businesses in my electorate being heavily impacted by the measures put in place to limit the spread of this virus, this will be an increasingly important resource for those who need it,” Member for Parkes Mark Coulton. The Contact Centre will be open seven days per week and provide additional hours of support outside standard operating hours for the first month, answering calls from 7am to 11pm. “In these extremely challenging times, I encourage businesses in the Parkes electorate that have been impacted by COVID-19 to access this advice, so they can fully understand the assistance available to them and their employees,” he said. For more details, call 13 28 46.

Telehealth keeping clients on the move

5 6 7

By JOHN RYAN THE community’s most vulnerable people are not only at risk of contracting Coronavirus, they’re also amongst those who’ll suffer the most by having to give up services that assist them mentally and physically when they are able to carry on life as normal. Numerous clients have told Dubbo Photo News that ‘On the Move Rehab’ is one local business that’s done so much for people trying to mitigate pain from chronic and acute health conditions. It’s just celebrated its first year of operation and now the pandemic is impacting their clients’ accessibility to that help, but the rehab centre has put in strategies so everyone can still be active and carry out their exercise regime. “The COVID-19 crisis has had a significant effect on us as a business, but more importantly our participants,” On the Move director Nic Grose said. “We are still currently open as we are an Allied Health facility and our goal is to keep people moving to decrease their risk of hospitalisation. “Now more than ever people need to continue to exercise, this can be in the form of video conferencing/telehealth if they are not comfortable in coming in to attend face to face sessions,” she said. On the Move is convinced its vital for their clients to be exercising at this time, along with everyone else in the community. “Now more than ever we need to be healthy and adopt healthy habits, the unknown can be a scary thing but if we can exercise for our own health and wellbeing it will help to lift others as well,” Mrs Grose said. Most of the centre’s participants are funded largely through government supports such as National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA), insurance com-

we came up with the idea to fundraise for something that was relevant to our participants and we chose MS because our very first patient to book into our centre (apart from our existing men’s’ group) was a lady who suffers from MS. “This lady has to this day been our most regular patient and has even increased the days she comes into the centre. Since opening we have another three patients who have MS, so we figured it was a worthy cause.” The last census indicated that about 2000 locals identified they lived with some sort of disability and Nic Grose and Ryan Medley hoped they could help 20 of them

at On the Move. Twelve months later and they have 180 regulars from across the region, growing the team numbers from two to six including exercise physiologists, and allied health assistant and well-being coordinator. “Every person who comes to us has an awesome back story. Because they attend on a weekly basis. We really get to know them and we have developed a friendship with them all,” Mrs Grose said. “Not only are we are proud of what we have created within the centre but also the positive and collaborative environment that we work in.”

NON-ESSENTIAL travel between regional NSW towns and remote communities must be cancelled, and Easter holidaymakers should indefinitely postpone their visits, in line with the nationwide effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 according to Dubbo MP Dugald Saunders. “COVID-19 doesn’t discriminate, so now is not the time to travel between towns or to relocate. The safest thing you can do right now is stay in your local community,” Mr Saunders said. “It’s important for everyone to understand this virus isn’t just impacting cities, and these measures will help protect the lives of the most vulnerable members of our local regions. “To help slow the spread we need people to do the right thing by our families, friends and neighbours, which means staying 1.5 metres away from others, no social gatherings, washing hands and ensuring that if you are sick, you self-isolate.” For the latest information about the NSW Government’s response to COVID-19, go to: www.nsw.gov.au

IN BRIEF

I still call Australia Home By JOHN RYAN HUSBAND and wife Kerrie and Lyndon Phipps were two of many locals who found themselves stuck overseas as the Coronavirus pandemic escalated. The overwhelming nature of the crisis, with things rapidly changing, was a challenging situation to deal with as they set their sights on getting back home. “We really were in the calm before the storm. And keeping track of the news (actual updates and not the dramatised versions) across the globe was helpful in remaining calm even as things changed quickly,” Mrs Phipps told Dubbo Photo news. “We were dealing with significant uncertainty, and the inability to contact Qantas to discuss changing our flights, so we only booked accommoKerrie and Lyndon Phipps had been regular overseas travellers.

flights so they could be out of home isolation by Easter. “Qantas’ website and phone lines were crashing, so we needed to get back to Singapore to see the Qantas staff there, face-to-face,” Mrs Phipps said. “Our first conversation with airport staff in Singapore was we had to have 14 days quarantine in Singapore now, until we assured them that India (and Australia) wasn’t on their list.” Once they’d sorted that, they were put on the first plane back to Sydney. “This was a moment of insight. People who’d booked through cheap booking sites weren’t given priority. I’d recommend a trusted travel agent who can go in to bat for you, or book direct with the airline,” she said. “We had a great week, with all the fun of an emotional roller coaster, from excitement to disappointment and sadness with plenty of uncertainty, but everywhere, wonderful people doing the best they can with unprecedented disruptions – the overall feeling would be gratitude. For so much, and for so many. “And as I heard sung many times on hold with Qantas, “I still call Australia home”,” Mrs Phipps said.

Community asked to not stockpile hand sanitiser

THE Federal Government is working closely with industry to further ramp up local manufacturing of hand sanitiser amid the COVID-19 outbreak. “We also need the community to play their part by not stockpiling. There is no need for people to have huge volumes of hand sanitiser at home,” Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said. “We have the capacity and the raw ingredients here to continue to meet the increased demand. Our Government will continue to do what it takes to ensure supply and increase domestic production of medical protection equipment – from sanitiser to masks to ventilators.”

Major drug bust at Cobar By JOHN RYAN

Relililevvin Re ng de d pu puty tyy prriin nccip cip ipal pal a, Jess Je sss Sch chul hul u ttee. e. PHOTO: DU DUBBO B

MORE than six million dollars of drugs have been seized after a police operation uncovered outdoor cannabis being grown at a 20,000 acre farm near Cobar (pictured). Officers attached to Strike Force Hyperion, part of the State Crime Command’s Drug and Firearm Squad, swooped on the remote property at Tindarey, about 80km north of Cobar, about noon on Tuesday this week. Police say they located and seized more than 3020 cannabis plants with an estimated potential street value of more than $6 million, the search warrant also uncovering a loaded double barrel shotgun and cannabis from a home on the property. A 34-year-old man was arrested and taken to Cobar Police Station where he was charged with several offences. Police will allege in court that the man was involved in the large-scale cultivation and supply of cannabis across NSW. The Griffith man was refused bail to appear at Bourke Local Court. Drug and Firearms Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent John Watson, said criminals using isolated and regional areas of NSW to grow cannabis crops will not go unnoticed. “This seizure is the largest outdoor cannabis crop located by the NSW Police Force since 2017 – with officers removing more than 3000 plants from the one location,� Det Supt Watson said. “We know from experience that criminal syndicates will often re-invest profits made from these crops into other illicit enterprises. “We want the community to know that our officers will continue targeting these criminal networks that remain in operation preying on Australians at this difficult and vulnerable time,� he said.

BUSINESS IN UNCERTAIN TIMES

To colour and cut? By JOHN RYAN THIS is the question according to Javo Hairstyling owner Paul Stubbs, who says there’s been plenty of confusion in the public arena about what people can and can’t do when it comes to hairdressers. “A lot of people have been confused but I think the government’s been pretty clear so we’re just listening to what they tell us and sticking within the guidelines and just doing everything we can, keeping things clean, keeping things tidy, keeping our social distancing,” Mr Stubbs told Dubbo photo News. The very nature of hairdressing means there’ll be one-on-one contact, but Mr Stubbs said there are plenty of strategies which can be used to minimise any chance of transmission. The salon has been zoned off, not with physical barriers but via direction to staff to each keep to certain areas and keep spread out. “Being hairdressers, we’re pretty much germophobes anyway, we’re constantly washing our hands all day every day, washing your hands in between clients is a normal practise anyway but now we’re obviously just being very diligent,” he said. The salon has processes in place to ensure that no matter how hectic business gets, staff make sure they don’t forget to wash hands between clients, sanitise every station, every bench, every cape every towel, and the washing has been stepped up. “We’re just doing whatever we can, I even sourced some pure alcohol to clean our gear, we’ll do whatever we can to stop it,” Mr Stubbs said, adding that no mat-

ter how stressful things get, drinking 100 per cent alcohol is not a solution. He’s facing up to the realities of how to pay rent, wages, insurances, etc., with a potential national lockdown looming. “It’s extremely uncertain, I’ve been doing everything I can to minimise what I can, talking to banks, talking to my accountant, talking to Orana Mall to see what they can do, they’ve got their own commitments, I’m hoping they’ll

be able to help but nobody knows,” he said. “We don’t know and until these things happen it’s going to be just battening down and trying to survive so that we come out the other side and we’ve got to try and stay positive. He says the hairdressing profession sees clients on a daily basis talking about a wide range of issues and sees signs that Australians may emerge from this crisis with a kinder collective attitude.

“I’ve seen it already. When we were told we only had half an hour for our colour appointments, our clients were willing to come in and have their colour, go away and come back for another appointment and then have their haircut, they were just going to do it,” Mr Stubbs said. “I just think people need to do what we have to do and get through this thing as quickly as possible, if we have to be locked down then we have to be locked

down, and hopefully everyone just looks after one another so that we don’t all go broke in the meantime. “That meant so much to me and it meant a lot to them too, that we were trying to find solutions for them and us. I mean we need to keep going so I can afford to pay my bills and my staff. They’ve all got mortgages. It just filters down the line and our clients are awesome people and they just wanted to help us out,” he said.

FOCUS ON FLETCHER’S

A long history of getting the job done By JOHN RYAN GREG CARTER is a man of few words but he’s got a long history of getting the job done. Any job. He started working for Roger Fletcher long before the Dubbo meatworks was even dreamt of and has held many positions in the company. He says job security and potential for advancement, as well as learning many different skills along the way, is a vital part of the company’s continued success. Dubbo Photo News interviews Greg for Dubbo Works. ••• Name: Greg Carter Job title: Export Shipping How long have you been at Fletch-

er’s? 35 years – 15 years in Sydney, and 20 years in Dubbo What prompted you to apply for a job out there? I started working with Roger in Moree over 40 years ago. Take us through the different jobs you’ve done since you’ve been there: Manager Fletcher Retail/Wholesale Butcher Shop at Newtown in Sydney, Shipping in Sydney when Fletcher had the Export Office there, Supervisor in boning rooms and harvest floor, Middle East documents and shipping coordinator for all containers from the abattoir going on our train to the ports. Tell us about the people you work with. I work with all people associated with the containers we load at the abattoirs – rail terminal, load out, by products, shipping, as well as many shipping companies and container

yards in Sydney. There are many long-term employees at the plant, why do you believe is? Security of employment. Many people say they enjoy the opportunities to move up in the company just by working hard and showing initiative – how important do you think it is to have that sort of culture in a workplace? Good – plenty of opportunities for anyone willing to learn. Now that you’re near the end of your career, what would you give your younger self? Try and learn as much as you can. Tell us about your proudest moment at work. There have been too many to mention over such a long time. Anything you’d like to add? I will be turning 70 next birthday and have announced that I will retire as soon.

ALL you need is love – even amid a global pandemic. Collie couple Jennifer and Andrew McCutcheon were one of many brides and grooms across Australia who threw months of planning to the wayside, quickly tying the knot in a private ceremony last week before restrictions on public gatherings kicked in. Due to wed this Saturday and having already postponed their reception until later in the year, the rescheduling followed the Prime Minister’s strict announcement on gatherings that prompted the pair to make an eleventh-hour decision to marry the next day. “I was very sad,” Mrs McCutcheon, who is a news reporter for ABC, told Dubbo Photo News. “I just couldn’t think about getting married without mum and dad there, and Andrew’s mum and dad.” With the rules coming into effect at midnight on Wednesday, the bride-tobe spent much of the night before and next morning making arrangements for the ceremony that afternoon. “We got married at 5.30pm and I was still running around doing things at 3.30pm,” Mrs McCutcheon laughed. “I was on the phone to our photographer at about 11.30pm, then I rang the florist in the morning and

called the local café in Gilgandra who put together a couple of plates of sandwiches for us. “I then went into Dubbo to get my makeup done, pick up my bouquet and pick up Andrew’s suit from the dry cleaners”. Jennifer and Andrew became Mr and Mrs on the groom’s family farm which has been passed down through four generations. The beautiful bride did her own hair in a simple, sleek ponytail and wore her mother’s stunning, white, lace wedding dress from the 1980s. She said their day was made even more magical by a sprinkle of rain and the most incredible sunset. “We maintained social distancing and we just blew kisses which was really hard, but at least we got to get married in front of our parents; it was very important to me,” Mrs McCutcheon said. “It was perfect. If I had my time over again, you’d almost do it that way.” While is wasn’t necessarily the big wedding with 140 guests they had been planning for 11 months, Mrs McCutcheon said it was a good reminder of what really matters. “We get so caught up in orders of service and everything being perfect like the colours of the flowers and what everyone is eating and table settings, but at the end of the day, when you don’t get to marry in front of your

And while she may still be feeling emotional and reflective after drastically rearranging the biggest day of her life within a matter of hours, Mrs McCutcheon certainly hasn’t lost her sense of humour. “I never would have thought I’d be eating curried egg sandwiches on my wedding day,” she laughed. “At the end of the day, all you need is your parents, some sandwiches and a husband”.

Water Restrictions now eased to level 3 across the Dubbo Regional Council area WATER restrictions across the Dubbo Region have now eased to Level 3 effective from Monday this week. Councillors voted to move from level 4 to level 3 restrictions at the March Ordinary Meeting of Council on March 25. The move came after Council considered the added pressures on residents and businesses amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, along with recent rainfall and Burrendong Dam’s rising levels. Key changes for residents include residential

garden watering times on Wednesdays and Sundays now allow 60 minutes before 9am or after 6pm. New turf installation is permitted however a new turf watering plan is required if residents would like to water outside normal restricted days/hours for turf establishment. The daily per person, per day target has increased to 320 litres. Water Saving Rebates Scheme re available online until June 30.

Mitchell Highway upgrades provide safe ‘pull over’ area Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders is pictured at the intersection of the Mitchell Highway and Cooba Road, just west of Dubbo, where major safety upgrades including wider road shoulders, improvements to drainage and installation of new roadside barriers are scheduled to be done. Mr Saunders said the $1.25 million project, delivered through the NSW Government’s Safer Roads Program, will give motorists an area to safely pull over to the side of the road. “This section of the Mitchell Highway has

little to no road shoulders, which means when a motorist needs to pull over, there are few options to safely do so. “The project will also remove trees that may block eye line or make it difficult to pull to the side of the road, extend drains to improve water runoff, and will install new signs, road shoulders and roadside barriers,” he said. The state government is also investing $18 million to build three much needed overtaking lanes on the Mitchell Highway between Dubbo and Narromine - work is expected to commence by the end of the year.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

A stitch in time By JOHN RYAN LAUREL Ball is counting her lucky stars after spending a stint in hospital for elective surgery just hours before the suspension of those procedures across Australia to prepare the nation’s medical infrastructure for an expected surge of Covid-19 hospitalisations. Laurel spent years teaching at Dubbo’s St Johns College but has since moved closer to family on Queensland’s Gold Coast. She was overwhelmed by messages of support from friends she made during her time in this city. About three weeks ago she had a gallstone attack but didn’t know what it was at first and subsequent scans showed gallstones were the problem. “The pain started out like a stitch in my right side and then increased to severe pain across the abdomen, chest and right shoulder. The pain was very intense and lasted several days,” Ms Ball told Dubbo Photo News. “Luckily for me, I was able to see a surgeon right away and

two weeks later was booked in for surgery through the private health system. I was advised that I could be waiting for a year or more if I went through the public system!” In this brave new world where every action seems to have a reaction relating to the Coronavirus pandemic, Ms Ball was concerned the surgery could have implications when it comes to the risk of infection and the prospect of having to return to work in her classroom next week. “In the current climate I have been a bit anxious about returning to work, as a school teacher, we come into close contact with so many people each day,” she said. “Post surgery, you are more immunocompromised, so I’ll definitely be assessing the situation at school before I return. “Luckily, the Queensland Premier has announced this week will be Pupil Free Days,

so that should lower my risk of infection.” Even though she’s had very kind offers from friends and family to visit, she said she’ll be self-isolating at home during her recovery just in case. Just as many people are describing these days waiting for the Coronavirus storm as surreal, she felt an unusual undertone in the hospital where the medical staff know they’re facing uncertain and unprecedented times. “The hospital staff, whilst remaining professional, did seem to be stressed and uncertain about what was happening,” Ms Ball said. “The night that it was announced that surgeries were being cancelled, I could hear nursing staff discussing what this would mean for the hospital and their concerns around safety and protective equipment.” She said she’s counting her blessings that her procedure

just scraped in prior to the ban on most elective surgeries, saying it all happened so fast from her first symptoms to actually having a surgery date. Then at the same time, the Coronavirus epidemic meant that she started to hear that other countries had closed elective surgeries. “I was worried that mine would be cancelled and I called the day before to confirm that it was all going ahead,” Ms Ball said. “I feel so awful for all the people who have missed out on their surgery. I have a friend who told me she was scheduled to have surgery this Friday and it’s been cancelled. There are people who have waited so much longer than me. “To be told that your surgery is not urgent is difficult to accept as each person’s health battle is urgent to them. You wouldn’t be booked in for surgery unless it was urgent.”

INDUSTRY

Arborist keeps chipping away By NATALIE LEWIS AT a time when social distancing is important, Dubbo’s Mark Ramirez is fortunate that his job as an arborist keeps him outdoors. Mr Ramirez has been working in the industry for 30 years and offers a range of services including tree removal, stump grinding, mulching and cherry picker work. He usually does private and commercial jobs but said business has slowed down in recent times, particularly due to the level of economic uncertainty caused by the spread of COVID-19. “It’s quiet but people are worried so they are not spending as much,” he said. “They don’t know what’s going to happen.” Mr Ramirez feels sorry

for others during this crisis period. “I’m sad for people. We are fortunate we have a bit we can do in terms of tree removal. “I feel more sorry for people who have lost their jobs.” In terms of business operation, Mr Ramirez says he will ‘just keep plugging away.’ “I’ll see what happens and if there’s work there. I’m pretty adaptable to circumstances. In this game you have to be adaptable – there’s always competition. “To do a job, you have to be wellpriced and look after people and they’ll keep giving you work. “With coronavirus, it’s sad that this is happening. We have to do the best we can. Look out for each other and don’t panic.”

Staying social connected while physically distanced By LYDIA PEDRANA

PHYSICALLY DISTANCING

WHILE the entire country has been ordered to ‘stay home’ and isolate, Headspace Dubbo is urging young people to stay connected, even if it’s not in real life. On Sunday evening, the Australian Government ruled that no more than two people can gather together, but the youth mental health foundation is encouraging the community to take advantage of technology to stay virtually social. “We've been advised to stay at home where possible but staying at home doesn't mean we can't stay connected,” Amy Mines, headspace Dubbo community and youth engagement coordinator, said. “It's important to stay in contact with loved ones during this time and we’re fortunate we have so much technology at our fingertips enabling us to do so.”

WHERE ON GOOGLE EARTH ?

With platforms and Apps like FaceTime and Houseparty, where you can video call multiple people at once, staying socially connected while physically distanced has never been more achievable. Headspace also reassured the community, particularly young

people, that feelings of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 pandemic is natural. Experiencing fear and anxiety, anger, frustration, sadness and denial are all “normal reactions to a not normal time,” the headspace website reads. Ms Mines said Headspace Dub-

bo was working “tirelessly” to create online content and safe spaces for young people online, as well as support for their parents and carers during this period of isolation. One particular resource they offer is eheadspace. “eheadspace is an online service that offers one-on-one counselling, group chats and webinars for young people and their families,” Ms Mines said. “The eheadspace service is available seven days a week via eheadspace.org.au.” As well as encouraging people to stay connected, headspace also offers seven tips for a maintaining healthy mindset during these times which includes eating well, getting enough sleep, staying active and learning new skills. For more information, visit www.headspace.org.au

AFTER being contacted by a local resident concerned that the medications she needed on a daily basis had not been supplied to her pharmacy for some time, Dubbo Photo News posed the question to rural health minister Mark Coulton. Mr Coulton sought advice from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and said the main messages were: z Demand for medicines increased markedly during the first two weeks of March. This has resulted in individual pharmacies and wholesalers reporting numerous product lines being out of stock. z Pharmaceutical companies have advised the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) that they do not anticipate imminent or widespread national-level medicine shortages due to potential impacts of COVID-19 on their manufacturing or logistics. z The Australian Government is strongly warning against people purchasing more medication than they require and stockpiling or hoarding medicines. z If very high demand, and excessive purchasing were to continue, then there may be supply interruptions at both the local and national levels. Mr Coulton said anyone with concerns regarding this issue should look at the online statement the (TGA) issued about pharmaceutical shortages at: www.tga.gov.au/ media-release/covid-19-limits-dispensing-and-sales-pharmacies

EMERGENCY REPORT

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

NEWS OPINION AND ANALYSIS by JOHN RYAN

Scam alert It’s the lowest of the low and should be difficult to believe, but scammers are impersonating @ woolworths and claiming to give away $250 shopping vouchers for #COVID19au. Police are urging locals not to click on the link or share with others – just press delete.

Stay at home! Police issued a Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) on Monday, March 30, to a man who allegedly failed to comply with a direction under the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW). Officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District commenced inquiries after reports a 44-yearold man allegedly attended a petrol station on Myall Street, Tomingley, at about 6am on Sunday, March 29. It’s alleged the man returned to Australia on Wednesday, March 18, and was advised he would be required to self-isolate for a 14day period. NSW Police officers now have the power to issue Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) to anyone found to be in contravention of a ministerial direction under the Public Health Act2010 (NSW). These PINs carry on-thespot fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for businesses. Anyone who has information regarding individuals or businesses in contravention of a COVID-19-related ministerial direction is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information will be treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.

Walgett escapee Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a man who escaped police custody at Walgett last Monday, March 30. The 37-year-old escaped custody from Walgett Police Station earlier today after being formally refused bail in court. He is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance with short black hair, facial hair, and was wearing a red T-shirt, black, green and red South Sydney Rabbitohs football shorts and blue training shoes. He was last seen running north on Pitt Street, Walgett. Anyone who may know his whereabouts is urged not to approach, but to contact Triple Zero (000).

Covid-19 isolation breach Police are urging the community to follow self-isolation directions after fining a man in Bourke when he failed to do so. On March 23, the 64-year-old arrived at Sydney International Airport on a flight from Thailand where he was advised he was subject to a Public Health Order and would be required to quarantine for a 14-day period. Bourke police received information that the man planned to breach the order and attended a home in north Bourke on March 27, and advised the man against leaving the property. Just hours later police were told the 64-year-old had left home and gone to the Bourke town centre.

He was located on Oxley Street and advised to go home immediately as he was in breach of the order. Later that day police returned to the man’s home and issued him with a $1000 Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) for failing to comply with a direction under Section 7 of the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW). Central North Police District Commander Superintendent Andrew Hurst is urging the community to take the threat of COVID-19 seriously for the sake of their community. “This deadly virus is a national issue, but we must remain particularly vigilant in regional areas, because failing to do so could be devastating for our communities,” Superintendent Hurst said. “If you choose to put the lives of your community at risk by ignoring a direction, you will be caught and you will be fined.”

Wellington drowning Tragic news from Wellington after a report was made to police that a 68-year-old man failed to return home after visiting an area known as “The Falls” on the Macquarie River on March 24. Local police joined with State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers and conducted a search of the area, but were unable to locate the man that day. The search resumed on March 25, with the assistance of police divers, the police dog unit, Police Rescue and SES, however failed to locate the man. About 9.15am on Thursday, March 25, a body believed to be that of the 68-year-old man was recovered from the river. A brief will be prepared for the information of the coroner.

More break and enter charges If there’s any crime that really infuriates communities, it’s the volume of break and enters where people steal stuff you’ve worked hard for. Now police have charged a second man following several breakins throughout the region in the past month. About 4.10am on March 13, three people allegedly armed with crowbars and an axe en-

tered a licensed club on Bathurst Street in Yeoval where they unsuccessfully attempted to open an ATM. They fled the location in a red (or maroon) hatchback car with coins from a vending machine. Detectives attached to Orana Mid-Western Police District attended and commenced an investigation. The following Monday, March 16, two people armed with crow bars forced entry into a club on Arthur Street, Wellington, and tried to force open an ATM but were unsuccessful. Police allege a gaming machine was forced open which triggered an alarm and they fled the location empty-handed. On Tuesday, March 17, it’s alleged that two people armed with crow bars attempted to gain entry into a club on Macquarie Street, Dubbo, but left when they were unable to gain entry. Following inquiries, officers executed a search warrant on March 19, where they arrested and charged a 29-year-old man with two counts of ‘aggravated break and enter’, ‘dwelling in company and steal’, ‘aggravated break and enter’ and ‘dwelling in company with intent to steal’. About 12.20am on March 29, police attempted to stop a vehicle on Pierce Street in Wellington, where the vehicle stopped and the driver ran from the location into a nearby backyard. After a short foot pursuit, a 33-year-old man was arrested and taken to Wellington Police Station where he was charged with two counts of ‘aggravated break and enter’, ‘dwelling in company and steal’, ‘aggravated break and enter’ and ‘dwelling in company with intent to steal’. Both men were bail refused to appear at Dubbo Local Court. Inquiries continue.

Nyngan PCA Police have issued an 18-year-old man with a court attendance notice after a vehicle stop in Nyngan last Sunday, March 30. Officers attached to Central North Police District stopped a Toyota Hilux on Merilba Street after the driver allegedly almost collided with a police vehicle when turning at an intersection.

The driver returned a positive result after being subjected to a random breath test. He was arrested and taken to Nyngan Police Station where a subsequent breath analysis allegedly returned a reading of 0.048. The man was issued with a field court attendance notice for special category driver for drive with special-range PCA (drink driving), and not comply P1 licence - no P-plates. Special range PCA applies to special category drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of between 0.02 and 0.049 g/100 mL. He’s due to appear at Nyngan Local Court on May 25.

Narromine truck rollover Narromine’s emergency services scrambled to reports of a truck rollover at about 3.20pm on Thursday, March 26, arriving to find the truck and trailers on its side 10 kilometres out of town on the Eumungerie Road. The driver extracted himself from the truck suffering cuts to the head and was transported to Narromine Hospital by ambulance after being treated at the scene by paramedics. Fire and Rescue NSW from Narromine and Trangie attended along with numerous Rural Fire Service (RFS) tankers and police, while Narromine Shire Council supplied a water tanker for any fire suppression.

Other dangers still out there A man has died following a motorcycle crash in the state’s west. About 5.30pm on Wednesday, March 25, emergency services were called after reports a motorcyclist had crashed near Eulomogo Creek bridge on Old Dubbo Road, Dubbo. Police believe the man lost control of his bike as he negotiated a sweeping left-hand bend and hit the Armco railing. Passers-by located the man and contacted emergency services. Police and ambulance personnel performed CPR on the man at the scene, but he died shortly after arriving at Dubbo Base Hospital. Officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District established a

crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash. A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

Firearm threats Police have charged a man after he allegedly threatened a group of people at a remote western pub. About 2pm on Friday, March 27, it was reported to police that two men had a verbal altercation at a hotel in Cumborah, about 72km north-west of Walgett. It’s alleged a 66-year-old man left the location briefly and returned with a firearm and made threats toward a group of people. Police say a member of the public spoke with the man and convinced him to surrender the gun, whereupon he again left the scene. Officers attached to Central North Police District attended, established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident, with the firearm and ammunition being seized by police. At about 6.30pm the 66-yearold returned to the hotel where he was arrested and taken to Walgett Police Station to be charged with ‘possess loaded firearm public place’, ‘possess unregistered firearm’ and ‘possess ammunition without holding licence’. He was bail refused to appear at Dubbo Local Court.

Most wanted Dubbo police are asking for community assistance to identify a male and female who they believe can assist with an investigation into a stealing offence which occurred in Dubbo on Monday, March 30. If you can supply any information about the identity and/or whereabouts of this male and female please call Dubbo Police on 6883 1599, or contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

IN BRIEF

Call for free mental health support for entertainment industry AFTER virtually all public events and performances have been cancelled throughout the Dubbo Local Government Area, the Entertainment Assist, a national health promotion charity supporting the mental health and wellbeing of the Australian entertainment industry, has called for free mental health services for Australian entertainment industry workers suffering financial hardship due to the cancellations of festivals, shows and activities. “This financial hardship is adding further strain to the mental wellbeing of these workers,” Entertainment Assist general manager Julia Edwards said. With over 45 per cent of the industry receiving an annual income of less than $30,000, financial insecurity restricts their ability to access the support services they desperately need. Individuals from the industry can register to participate in a series of free mental health and wellbeing webinars called INTERMISSION by contacting entertainmentassist@gmail.com.

SMALL BUSINESS CLOSURE

Kookaburra Café closes in Warren A WARREN eatery which services tourists as well as locals has closed as the operators join with other businesses across the region to try and navigate these unchartered waters and uncertain times. Riversmart CEO Dr Bill Phillips said they took the decision to close the Kookaburra Cafe at the WOW Centre until further notice in the interests of staff and community well-being. “As a community-based organisation we feel it’s important to heed the advice of experts and help limit social interactions in order to hopefully beat this pandemic sooner rather than later and we’re self-isolating and urge all our friends and colleagues

to do likewise,” Dr Phillips said. The launch of the new restaurant menu at The Kookaburra will also be delayed now until we re-open. Related to this is the decision to postpone the unveiling of the Warren High Achievers panels - that event was earmarked for April 3, but will now be staged on a date yet to be fixed. “Again, it’s disappointing but given that we expected a crowd to attend, it was a no brainer to postpone the event,” he said. “So, batten down, stay safe and hope this thing passes sooner rather than later. For me, as an avid jigsaw person, I’ve stocked up and plan to spend my self-isolation working on them.”

THIS home office is the result of a bloke who used to work in Dubbo, but decided he’d move to the coast and do his work from home. The array of computer screens make it look more like Captain Kirk’s bridge on the Starship Enterprise than home offices most people are familiar with. “I wanted to create a paperless office,” this re-

mote worker told Dubbo Photo News. “I also needed a system that could do everything I need to do, as quickly and efficiently as possible.” He said having such a robust work station in place means he isn’t detrimentally affected by home isolation measures due to emergency situations like the Coronavirus pandemic currently dislocating so much of Australia’s normal way of living.

IN PROFILE

From Dak Lak to Dubbo Dong Van Nguyen grew up in Vietnam, but came to call the Dubbo region a “second home” as he trained to become a priest in the Diocese of Bathurst. Having come to know Dong during his time here, GEOFF MANN recently travelled to Vietnam to learn more about Dong’s family and homeland, and share thanksgiving with him in his home parishes.

DONG Van Nguyen became the first Vietnamese Catholic to train and be ordained a priest in the Diocese of Bathurst. The young man who grew up in a Communist country where religion is not exactly a staple, has overcome many challenges on his journey. Dong was ordained by Bishop Michael McKenna at St Michael’s and St John’s Cathedral in Bathurst in February. He will soon commence his full-time pastoral duties alongside the former Dubbo priest, Fr Owen Gibbons, in Mudgee. Currently Dong is in isolation following his return from Vietnam where he celebrated his Mass of Thanksgiving in his home parish at Buon Ma Thuot City in the province of Dak Lak. Dong’s family moved to Dak Lak to develop a coffee and pepper farm in 1996. The family of nine worked the new venture with their mum and dad after spending the first period of their lives growing rice and raising animals in the northern central area around Vinh City. Dong actually returned to Vinh for his higher school years before studying at University in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). “I felt called by God to serve my community as a priest. When I met Bishop McKenna, who was visiting our Catholic Diocese in Vinh, I felt drawn to Australia,” the newly ordained priest reflected. “Bishop Michael offered me an opportunity to live within the rural Diocese and, after spending some time in Sydney and Bathurst, I moved to Dunedoo. The Bishop felt Fr Carl Mackander would be an ideal mentor and friend,” Dong told Dubbo Photo News. “He was right! Fr Carl welcomed me warmly and I was very soon accepted by the parishioners at St Michael’s. I was taken aback by the hospitality of the little town

and surrounding mass centres in Coolac and Mendooran and became engaged in many parish as well as community activities.” The young man was preparing for his life of service by living amongst those he will now pastor to as priest. “Australia is so different from my homeland. The vast open spaces, the dry crops and grazing of sheep and cattle were totally new to me. I went on farms where men and women used horses to move stock. I learned how rain – or lack of – was always in people’s minds and that sport was the centre of the community.” Dong loved his time in Dunedoo then headed to the Seminary to commence formation and studies for the priesthood the following year. “Fr Carl was patient and understanding, especially as I grappled with English. It seemed funny to a Vietnamese learning how to speak Australian English. I sometimes met up with Fr Martin O’Mahoney (Gilgandra) and Fr Pat Ruane (Orange), both Irishmen who spoke with a different brogue. Fr Carl taught me proper English; the locals messed with my head as they spoke in slang all the time,” he laughed. Between the Irish priests and the country people of Dunedoo, Mendooran and Coolah, Dong became “an Aussie” and set off to the Good Shepherd Seminary with his kitbag of “sayings” and a commitment to grow and learn in his faith. “I had given my word to Bishop Michael that I would study hard and once I had completed would devote myself to bringing God to the people if Western NSW.” Dong spent four years at Homebush before a pastoral year here in Dubbo at St Brigid’s where he became more involved in the many facets of life in a regional city parish. He was mentored by Fr

Dong’s extended family including his grandmother at front

Greg Kennedy and shared a home with an Indian priest as well as Fr Martin who had moved in from Gilgandra. “My eyes were opened by the volume and breadth of the work of the priests. There were school visits, hospital and home visitations, preparations for sacramental programs and liturgies, daily mass and services at nursing homes and so much more. The presbytery reminded me of home – it never seemed to stop,” he remembered. “There was an energy that drove me. I was inspired by the generosity of everyday folk who served the poor and needy through St Vincent de Paul and other charities. I was amazed at how many visitors came through the place and, of course, I was witness to the many joys and sorrows of daily life, helping out with baptisms, sacramental programs and funerals.” Dong and his classmate Karl Sinclair were ordained together in a service live-streamed to family and friends in Vietnam. His mum and some other family members travelled for the week of preparations and the ceremony. The awareness of Dong’s decision to leave his own family to share his love for God and his unwavering faith with us, motivated Bridget and me along with my brother Paul and his wife Leonie to repay the favour and spend time with Dong and share our thanksgiving with him in his home parishes. We had an incredible journey visiting not only Dong’s new and old homes but all of the families of the other Vietnamese who are training to gift their lives to God and minister out west. Our eyes were opened to a culture that is ancient but very vibrant. We gained insight into the depths of poverty and the unfailing belief that what they have is to be shared with others. We spent time locked in battle with a never-ending cacophony of sounds as all manner of vehicles shared both sides of the packed thoroughfares in a somehow workable, if not-so-harmonious fashion. We ate everything from eels to heron, lots of boiled pork and chicken and multitudes of rice and noodles. The Vietnamese love to

party and especially to toast using rice wine and warm beer! We left each home filled to the brim with food and great hope. Dong will be joined in the Diocesan family in coming years as young men like Thao, Diep, Duong, Cong, Nam, Ha and Kieu complete their studies. Thao and Kieu, who was known as Lucas when he was living in the city and playing football with Newtown last year, have already ingrained themselves in the Dubbo way of life. Duong also spent the weeks leading up to Christmas at St Brigid’s, and all will be back as their academic years complete and they come to get to know their new family. Fr Carl Mackander in Wellington is the Spiritual and Vocations Director for the Diocese. He acts as a sounding board and mentor

and, in his own words, is “an interpreter of Aussie-isms”. Fr Carl currently has Dai, a university graduate from Vinh, living in his home in Wellington. Dai is practising his written and spoken language skills with the aim of passing English exams later this year and commencing his formation to priesthood. He is following the path paved by Dong Van Nguyen and the other young men who have taken up the invitation to follow Christ. Dong’s journey from Dak Lak through Dunedoo and Dubbo is quite uplifting. To walk some of that way with him has been a privilege and reaffirmation of our own faith. Dong says he is “ordained to do what God asks me to do. I am his servant; the Bathurst Diocese is my family”.

Important COVID-19 Update from your local paper

How Locals Can Help Locals! Dear Readers, These are challenging times for our local community, as they are for all local communities around the world. Many of us are anxious, and unsure about many things, but one thing we know for certain is that we need to work together as a community to overcome the challenges this global pandemic has created. ISOLATE AND AVOID INFECTION 7KH&RURQDYLUXVLVĂ€UVWDQGIRUHPRVWDKHDOWKFULVLVDQGNHHSLQJRXUFRPPXQLW\VDIHDQG healthy is the number one priority. Please follow the government protocols and do all you can to avoid infection. STAY INFORMED For 15 years, Dubbo Photo News has been the trusted source of local news, and we take our responsibility to inform the local community very seriously. For the latest government advice regarding COVID-19, see www.health.gov.au, and please beware that ‘news’ on social media is not regulated and many false and dangerous theories are being shared online. PLEASE BUY LOCAL This health crisis has caused an economic crisis, and we need to do all we can as a community to save local jobs, and livelihoods in the long term. The best thing we can do (in addition to staying well) is buying from local businesses whenever possible. Buying locally has an amazingly positive multiplier effect on the local community because your money keeps being reinvested by other local businesses and employees. This is critical to keeping locals in jobs. A NOTE TO OUR ADVERTISERS We understand these are very tough times for business – as we are also the feeling the impact. We are ready to assist you to change your advertising copy to keep the local community updated about any changes to your business operations, safety protocols, new service delivery models, messages of thanks/support, or other important news. We are also in the process of developing programs for our loyal advertisers to assist through these tough times, and we look forward to working together to see this through. Our readership is up, as people seek trusted news in a crisis. THANKS TO OUR READERS We can’t thank you enough for your loyal support over that past 15 years, and we look forward to keeping you informed in the decades to come. Our journalists are doing an outstanding job, in very tough conditions, and by reading this locally-owned paper – and by supporting and shopping with our advertisers – you are helping to ensure they keep us updated and informed. Thank you. Finally, they say character is revealed in a crisis, and our local community is once again rallying and showing great strength and resilience.

FOOD

Claim back our food As the world’s food supply chains are threatened by a melt-down brought about by port closures and panic buying thanks to the ongoing CoronaCrisis, Dubbo man Dee Mould is quietly supplying fresh produce to others in the community. Mr Mould told Dubbo Photo News the current crisis should be viewed as an opportunity to change the way we treat fellow human beings as well as better looking after the fragile ecosystems which sustain us. By DEE MOULD I'M part of some alternative communities, I'd say, I don't really consider myself a gardener, I'm more into trying to produce food to supply communities and try to localise our food production and even take the monetary value away from our food, claim our food back for us and stop it being a commodity. It grows out of the ground, it's free. People are starving. Nine million people each year die of hunger-related diseases, but for something that grows out of the ground. I'm a rubbish gardener, there's people in this garden who are far better at gardening than me, but food just churns out of the ground and there'll be people in Dubbo tonight who are starving, they haven't got any dinner. Human beings can learn how to grow food from nature. Pumpkins grow themselves, lots of vegetables grow themselves. Pumpkins are a weed, I'm not a good gardener, I have skills in that I can identify what will grow rampantly and that's what I grow. Mr Mould believes the Coronavirus has exposed the extreme fragility of modern commodification of the food chain, a system when he says has put the profits from

food into the hands of a very few. Absolutely, I went in to Woollies and it didn't feel nice. People were panicking. I didn't see any fighting but there was a nasty feel to it, a nasty undercurrent, it was like Christmas with no pretence of goodwill. Everyone was panicking and rushing to try and get food. They've realised how fragile our system is and if Woolworths can't keep up with that demand, there's going to be people with no food and people have realised that. My mind was open to that a long time ago but there's people I can see, where it hasn't crossed their minds. They panic over toilet paper but now there's potentially no food it could get a lot worse than it is at the moment. The whole system is based on those supply chains and we could start running out of diesel, it could all dry up and the panic that that would happen if those systems collapsed. Look at Hurricane Katrina, the supply systems and essential services collapsed and it was a pretty unpleasant place to be. Our society is fragile and we need to not to panic the week before midnight. This won't be the last major incident, we need to sort this situation out and not wait until the week before it's disrupted,

when people are scared. People need to start building local supply chains and systems of community that produce the things they need in Dubbo, it's as simple as that and then we can weather these storms. I'm not in the slightest bit worried, when I went in Woolworths yesterday, I bought a packet of mushroom 'cos I don't grow mushrooms, and a couple of curry sauces, and I left. I'm not going to starve, I'm going to eat really well. I've been giving pumpkins away for quite a while and I have many pumpkin recipes. I have many eggplant recipes, I'm not going to starve and if we were all doing this on a local level, growing our own food we could interact with each other and supply each other instead of making some corporations rich, those corporations are stealing off of us. The people I give my vegetables too, say they taste very nice. A lot of them are old enough to appreciate a time when there was more localised production but who's going to turn their nose up at free food. You don't have that hippy style community in Dubbo, you're not

going to build a community of hippies who share food, it's not going to happen but we as Dubbo residents need to build a community of residents that are going to share food. I've got people coming on to my Facebook now saying there are going to be people who will need food, I've got a few vegetables in the scheme of things and I can feed some people with them, so hopefully people will see that I'm not doing it so hard as them although I'm trying to share and they'll think to be a bit more localised and prepared in the future, moving into the future. Hoping our governments and businesses will take major lessons from this current crisis where there's a major trust deficit when it comes to believing anything politicians say. There's going to be an event that comes along that forces us to make change and you know it's been a long time coming but as a species we need that change and if it's not this one it'll be something else. If we don't change our ways and start treading a bit gentler on the earth, stop just blindly consuming and

NEWS/EMY LOU

start producing food at home, it's not hard. You know, we can produce more of our stuff, consume less and we don't have to work as hard. I've been coming down [to the community garden] for a few years now. I wasn't in the best place when I started coming down here and look, it's just, it's not just gardening it's that connection to nature. Indigenous people call it a connection to country, you know, we've lost that, most people have been removed from the land and people just don't have that connection to nature and to the land anymore and we're suffering because of it. We're being ruled by people who've got no idea and no sympathy towards it, we're being steamrollered by the extractive industries, farms are just massive agribusinesses, it's all gone wrong, it's gone horribly wrong. We’ve stuffed it up. Something is going to come along that forces us to change our ways and unfortunately that's not going to be a pleasant experience for a lot of people unless we start introducing change now.

shares some tips to help small business thrive during times of adversity.

The 6 C’s to Business Continuity through the Corona Crisis COMMENT By BEAU ROBINSON THIS is not even just to get through a crisis. This is the six C’s that you should actually have in place at all times and you should be reinforcing within your organisation or company, but now more p during this crisis, than ever, du they are integral. inte Clarity Do you have hav clarity around your new goals, your new strategies and your new plans for w what your business is going through? Your You goals and plans shouldn’t p be the same as b what they were w four weeks ago. Hopefully, because of the

current environment, you have adjusted. You need clarity on what that looks like, written down on paper or in a document. Confidence When you have a written tangible plan in place you will be a lot more confident in knowing what you’re aiming to achieve, and how. Clear goals and plans are a compass that you can refer back to. It needs to be in writing and visible. If you’ve got people working from home, make sure they know exactly what the plan is, and also have it visible. Communicate You need to communicate the plan with the rest of your business and teams. You may also need to share it with current clients and suppliers, depending on your situation. You’re your plan is communicated, everyone has clarity creating confidence with the leaders and the leadership team on where your business or organisation is going in the future, and that leads to confidence amongst the rest of the organisation.

I’ve done this with several leaders and their teams. It’s a huge sigh of relief to team members when they have clarity about the future. Try this and see the difference. In these times particularly, people want to be led and people want clarity in where they’re going and how they’re going to get there. You need to be giving out plenty of constant, concise communication. Certainty The next step is certainty, because you do actually have a plan in place. You’ve got that. Do you believe it’s going to work? You’re confident that it is the right plan, for the moment, but you’re certain that you actually have a plan in place. Everyone in your business should be aware of that and also what their role is and how they contribute to the overall goal in their role. Without a plan your business can be like a rudderless boat in the stormy ocean, not in control. Especially during times of uncertainty people want to follow people and leaders who are in control

of what they can’t be. Control the controllable. Conviction When you are talking and communicating with your team members or the rest of your company, you must speak with conviction. Your strength and confidence when speaking, whilst calm and composed, will convince people that you are in control. Commit You need to commit. You also need to get commitment from your leaders and from other team members around committing to your plan. Once you have commitment, you’re on the same page. You can then execute, and this will occur if the plan is simple and clear. Clear and concise, ideally on one page. Now don’t get me wrong, these goals and plans may be updated daily, several times a day but if you don’t have a plan, that’s risky. z Beau Robinson is an Action Coach Business Coach and former Super Rugby Champion and Wallaby. beaurobinson@actioncoach.com

TIME WARP

More information please: A special year for Dubbo Hospital

Contributed by PETER WOODWARD IN a year when we’ve never needed it more, Dubbo Hospital will be in its Sesquicentenary year during 2020 after it was opened in 1870. There had been planning going in regard to events to be organised, and one of the things being planned was to have a history display, including some old photos salvaged from various people and cupboards. The photo here shows a group of men with a chocolate wheel, presumably raffling some sort of prize or cash, I would imagine as a fund raiser for the Hospital. We don’t have any information on who appears in it, what the occasion was or when it was held. The only giveaway in the photo is that the board behind the gentle-

men says “Dubbo District Hospital Great Fancy Fair”. A search online makes no reference to this, although there seemed to be a fair few Great Fancy Fairs held in other areas around the early 1900s, in Geelong and Bourke in particular. We’d like to know more about this photo. We’d appreciate hearing from any Dubbo Photo News readers who may have any reliable information about who is in this photo, for example are they doctors, board members, staff or even possibly some group of volunteers who were involved when it was taken, and what was the event held for. Whilst the Hospital Birthday Celebrations have been postponed for now, it would be good for the Hospital history as well as the town history held at the local library.

Send us your own Time Warp photos: You can share your photos showing the history of our region with Dubbo Photo News readers. Photos can be 10 years old, or a hundred. Any information you can share about your photos will help, and if you’re seeking more information about your photos, often our readers can help with that too.

FROM THE BOOKSHELVES ] By DAVE PANKHURST, The Book Connection

THE front cover of the book “Anxiety” notes that it contains “expert advice from a neurotic shrink who’s lived with it all his life”. Dr Mark Cross comments that there is a big difference between knowing about it and living with it. He can offer both perspectives, resulting in a powerful combination of empathy and deep knowledge, an uncommon factor where people write on the subject. He details the types of anxiety, the causes and common triggers, medical, therapy-based and natural treatments. Read about the effect anxiety has at each stage of life, anxiety in the workplace, and navigating the health systems. Michael McQueen has written “How to Prepare Now for What’s Next”. Disruption is changing the playing field – keep your successful business in its place, and the time is here

When the going gets tough, the tough get going

to future-proof your business. The book explores the elements of disruption, whether it be drought, fire, the virus etc. “The Book of Hope” provides an antidote for anxiety. Author Vicki Bennett reveals that we are more anxious now than ever before. We have survived as a species because relevant challenges have occurred before, and our in-built mechanism of ‘fight or flight’ has turned into overwhelming anxiety that we soothe, avoid or numb. The book provides a new concept and mind-set for dealing with

anxiety now – it’s called ‘hope’. Written in 2004, “Status Anxiety” by Alain de Botton continues as a guide to prompt us to think about how we live and how we might change things. We worry about what others think of us. We all long to succeed and we fear failure. We all suffer to a greater or lesser degree, usually privately and with embarrassment – from status anxiety. The author looks at history, philosophy, economics, art and politics, and reveals the many ingenious ways that great minds overcome their worries. One of the outstanding classics to emerge from the Holocaust is “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. It is the author’s story of his struggle for survival in Auschwitz. Today it remains a remarkable tribute to hope that offers us an avenue to finding greater meaning and purpose for our lives. A book still widely circulating after nearly 39 years is “Living

With It” by Bev Aisbett. It is a calm, commonsense guide that has helped so many panic attack sufferers to overcome their fears. She explains how panic disorders develop, how to recognise the symptoms, and covers topics such as changing negative thought patterns and the skills for recovery. Sarah Edelman has written “No Worries” which is a guide to managing anxiety and worry using CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy). Anxiety and worry robs us of the ability to think clearly, enjoy life and function effectively at home, at work and in social situations. One in five Australians have an anxiety disorder at some time in their lives and many more have periods of

debilitating anxiety. One book that is still relevant to the challenges of current times, where so many of us in the community are having to think seriously about making decisions about the future, is “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz. It was originally written post WWII when “cybernetics” were developed – the technology of redirecting the flight of missiles back on target when they could have been diverted by some influence. And “psycho” applies to the brain function. When circumstances confront us and divert us from our aims in life, the brain works to bring us back on track. Circumstances is these current times can be challenging for so many of us with all manner of influences challenging how we see our future. It reminds me of the days when I was still going to school and we were told, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Enjoy your browsing, Dave Pankhurst z Dave Pankhurst is the owner of The Book Connection, 178 Macquarie Street, Dubbo

OPINION & ANALYSIS | THE TOONS’ VIEWS

LETTERS & FEEDBACK

Support local business where you can

The Editor, I note in last week’s edition of Dubbo Photo News an article from the Mayor encouraging us to spend an extra $50 per week on food services – takeaway, home delivery, that sort of thing. What a great idea. Of course, finding an extra $50 per week would be difficult for those who’ve just lost their sources of income – full time and casual workers, business owners who’ve been forced to close down. Pensioners find it hard to spare $50 any time. Let’s be honest, not too many of us have that sort of money to splash around. But why stop at food services? If you have a spare $50, spend it on any local business. Look after the people who’ve looked after us. Keep them afloat so they’ll still be there for us when this ill wind blows away. All retail deserves our support. Remember, every day is one day closer. Brian McMullen, Dubbo

Think of small businesses The Editor, It has struck me that many small businesses are in danger of failing due to the current medical and social isolation regulations. One idea is to consider buying a gift card/voucher from any small business you frequent next time you need to venture out. This will help with the cash flow of that business, give them some much-needed moral support, and go a good way toward keeping them open. Just to buy a $50 voucher/card will not have a huge impact on most shoppers, customers and clients, yet it could mean the world to the business. There is no reason this idea would not also assist some larger businesses. It is a small gesture which will support our local businesses which are still able to be open. We all need to work together on this issue, so give this some thought. Be assured it will have a positive effect on the businesses, and you will feel good too. Chris Fallon, Dubbo

My father died recently and I feel incredibly relieved John Ryan ❚ OPINION

MY father died in February and while sad, I feel incredibly relieved. I’m relieved because he was being kept alive, at 92, by the miracles of modern medicine. But the pain was getting to be so great that, at the end, he would have needed to be so topped up on tablets that he wouldn’t have really been here anyway. The decision to transfer him to palliative care was one I wish we didn’t have to make, but with the Coronavirus crisis now upon us we wouldn’t have been able to visit him at the nursing home and he may well have caught the virus and died alone. That would have been heartbreaking. My mum, grieving for Dad after 61 years of marriage, is locked up in her unit with a dog for company, self-isolating because of her age and medical conditions. I feel for the millions of Australians who have sick or elderly relatives they can’t visit, and who, if this sickness spirals out of control, they may never see again. I feel for Ange and John Croft and their 13-year-old daughter Molly who’s battled so much sickness in the past two years, that it’s crippled her immune system. (Dubbo Photo News brought you their story last week, and Geoff Mann has another update on Mol-

ly in today’s Sport section.) The stress and strain on families like theirs must be overwhelming, and that’s before any financial losses are taken into account. I’m hopeful the social distancing measures that most people finally seem to be taking seriously are actually having a positive impact, but we needlessly delayed so many simple measures for too long. Blind Freddy could see this illness was new and different, and critically serious when the health system in northern Italy was overwhelmed. Italy isn’t a place where headline deaths in the thousands don’t flutter an eyelid in western nations. It’s a first world country with a first-class healthcare system. It’s a country where doctors had to say to cancer sufferers just like Molly Croft, that their deficient immune systems meant they wouldn’t be getting a ventilator and a bed in intensive care. As such, people just like Molly were left to die in hospital corridors. As Molly’s mum says – let’s put human faces to this disaster. Yes, the Italian demographic shows there’s a high percentage of older, sick people living there, but it’s nevertheless a red flag that was flown early – one we didn’t take full advantage of learning from. A couple of weeks ago my family had booked to stay in Sydney so we’ve done our dough there. My youngest brother has postponed his wedding which was scheduled for next month, so flights and accommodation are gone there as well. That hurts, but my financial loss

It’s difficult not to be cynical in thinking that the Federal Government wasted all this time delaying social distancing measures to give it time and space to work out a package that’ll suit their well-heeled donors and mates, yet sound plausible to the people who’ll be far worse off. I’d like an audit to see who in our Federal parliament was able to dump shares in the past couple of months after potentially having access to the best inside information on the looming economic disaster. It happened in the USA and if our pollies have nothing to hide, let’s get that chestnut out in the open. Speaking of openness and transparency, how about federal Liberal senator Andrew Bragg who flew up to Dubbo and back to Sydney on March 10 and who subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. He posted a Facebook video while in self-isolation on March 20. That post was not only spruiking government leadership, but also trying to flog off his new book (ironically about superannuation). I’d prefer it if he was an open book about who met him at the airport, who drove him to Bodangora and who was in the car with him. Did he eat lunch somewhere, ` I’d like an audit to see did he bump into someone while who in our Federal parhe got a cup of coffee? liament was able to dump Because all these people he was shares in the past couple close to could be infecting more loof months after potentially cals right now. Surely we the people have the having access to the best inside information on the right to know exactly where he went and what he did and who he looming economic while he was here – that’s far disaster... a saw more important than any pretence

is nothing compared to what many people right here in Dubbo are facing. It’s so miniscule in this new scheme of things that it’s not even worth mentioning, except to say how incredibly lucky I am when thousands of locals are facing financial ruin. I’m critical of the bail-out plans from the government because they’re bailing out large corporations that in many cases don’t pay much tax. When things go well, tax-dodging is fair game if you’re a rich capitalist, but when your investment sours, they demand the actual taxpayers give them billions in gifts, while small businesses seem to get loans they have to pay back. For weeks teachers were being scape-goated, child-minding kids so the economy could keep going. Look outside our borders and most countries around the world emptied their classrooms long ago. If emergency and health workers need child-minding services so they can go to work, we could have used empty schools for that babysitting and pay some of the people who’ll lose their jobs to look after those kids.

to his personal privacy. All we know is he visited a wind farm near Bodangora. After tightening up social security for years, this government has now upped all sorts of dole payments for people who aren’t actually worse off because they’re losing their jobs – they didn’t have jobs to lose. Small business and sole traders, on the other hand, most of whom will never vote for the ALP, are far less certain about whether they’ll get enough support just to survive. It’s an unfolding space where economic rescue packages are concerned, but it’s difficult not to be cynical when workers are told they’ll be able to access some of their own superannuation to tide them over, but that’s just short-changing their retirement savings down the track. The government’s not contributing at all. If a corporation wants a bail-out, instead of taxpayer gifts, the government should be buying shares in those companies at rock-bottom prices, and when the share prices rise, that fiscal windfall will help pay for the billions in current rescue measures – as I see it, that’s the reality of capitalism, buy when things are tough and sell when times are good. We should be looking after everyone in these trying times, but we’re not. z Note: John Ryan is also a councillor on Dubbo Regional Council.

Lucky winners are grinners at the Can Assist raffle

ceries into her trolley and paid for them after being told he had gone over the limit for certain items.

Contributed by PRUE THOMPSON

CAN Assist held a raffle over the weekend at Brennan’s Mitre 10 with lots of awesome prizes to be won. First prize was a Flight Centre voucher valued at $1000 which went to Frank Brennan. Second prize was a Love Merino Scarf that went to Wade Graham. Third prize was a painting by Stuart Vorais that went to Tony Petch. Fourth prize was a Pear Tree Cafe voucher that went to Allan Medley and fifth prize was a Skin Logic voucher that went to Amanda Glasson. Can Assist would like to thank all the donors and supporters and look forward to fundraising later in the year.

Congratulations! To our neighbours who, despite being small business proprietors, for doing the right thing and observing their 14-day self-isolation and abiding by the rules after returning from overseas.

Thumbs Down to the selfish, oxygen thieves who continue to panic buy and swipe everything off the shelves. You’re all a bunch of hypocrites. What happened to communities coming together to support one another?

Thumbs Up to the drivers of the new 13 cabs service for their friendly and obliging approach to their customers. Great job guys – you’ve got our business.

Thumbs Up and thank you to Dubbo Wheel Alignment for their excellent service after servicing my car and referring me on to get my battery changed.

Thumbs Up to Woolworths Home Delivery. We are seniors in self-isolation who have used this for the first time while the coronavirus has us housebound. Although we couldn’t get all the items we ordered, what we received was excellent. The delivery man dropped our groceries at our front door, very close to the time quoted. A job well done by all involved, thank you.

Thumbs Up to all the Early Childhood Educators for maintaining a caring environment even through difficult times!

Thumbs Down to the person at the supermarket who suggested I had too much shopping in my trolley. I had 34 items, half of which were for my elderly parents. Very disappointing behaviour!

Your Country  Your Voice               This week the Australian Government announced another two economic stimulus packages. This brings the total investment into economic support to $320 billion to help our country through these challenging times. The new packages focus on supporting mental health, front line health workers, the vulnerable and all those who have lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus. The one-off cash payments of $750 for pensioners and those with concession cards have also started to go into the accounts of those eligable, and over 113, 000 businesses have already registered for the new Jobkeeper payment that encourages businesses to keep their staff on the books. The below information reflects the latest updates I have on the financial support that the Australian Government is offering.

      

 

    •

The jobkeeper payment is $1500 a fortnight per worker to employers to pay their employees and keep them on the books.

•

It covers full and part-time workers, sole traders and casuals who have been employed in the business for 12 months or more.

•

Any business is eligible as long as their turnover has been affected by 30% or more.

•

Anyone who has been stood down from 1 March will be eligible to receive the payment allowing businesses to backdate claims for workers.

   

    •

•

•

The partner income test has been increased from $48,000 to $79,762 to increase access to the JobSeeker payment, and associated $550 Coronavirus Supplement.

 

   

 •

This means you will be eligible for $1500 a fortnight, if you have lost your job due to coronavirus, provided your partner earns less than $3,068 per fortnight, around $79,762 per annum.

Effective immediately, all proposed foreign investments into Australia will require government approval, regardless of value or the nature of the foreign investor.

•

The change will be achieved by reducing to zero the monetary screening thresholds for all foreign investments.

•

We can't have other countries or their companies taking advantage of this crisis by swooping in and taking over distressed assets and businesses.

•

It’s an issue that many of our local community members have been raising with me since the beginning of this crisis and I’ve had very positive feedback on this announcement.

The personal income test for individuals on JobSeeker Payment will still apply.

      •

There is a new home delivery service being introduced for medicines on the PBS and RPBS schemes. For more details contact your local pharmacist.

    

   A lot of people have contacted me about the issue of supermarket raiders. Yes, they're real, contrary to some media reports. There is evidence at our ports and post offices that organised syndicates have been raiding supermarkets. After relaying our local experiences to the Home Affairs Minister I am pleased that it is now an offence under the Biosecurity Act to send supplies in large quantities overseas. There will be penalties and enforcement. Items have and will continue to be siezed and redistributed to Australians.

       As the coronavirus continues to take hold of our communities, our Aussie way life, as we know it, has had to adapt. For the time being, there’ll be no more BBQ’s and other face-to-face gatherings such as birthday parties and dining out with friends, as hard as this may be. There are huge local challenges and issues to face and I continue to take our communities’ concerns back to the key decision makers in Canberra. But despite these changes, and the fear of social isolation that some may be facing, it’s also an opportunity for us to come together, via other means, to stay connected. Families and friends are keeping in touch through things like Facetime on mobile phones, social media conversations, a simple telephone call and even via letters. And it seems that as we all adjust to this together, we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, with some early indications that the infection rate curve may be flattening as most Australians are doing to right thing, by staying home and adhering to other social distancing measures. However, it remains critical that we continue to follow the guidelines as they are released, as we are only at the beginning of navigating one of the most severe epidemics the world has ever seen. We also need to be getting the message out to our seniors that it’s time for them to bunker down. We love our seniors and that’s why we need to keep them as safe as possible until this crisis passes. We will get through this, together. That’s what country Aussies do. •

•

The GP bulk billing incentive will be doubled for GPs. This will ensure practices stay open to provide essential faceto-face services for patients with conditions unable to be treated through telehealth.

Flying the flag: Just a couple of months ago no-one would have been surprised if this 1950’s drill rig (spotted on the edge of town) was brought out of retirement so it could start digging bores.

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 Ever wondered why those athletic lace-ups on your feet are sometimes called sneakers? The moniker came about in the late 1800s, from their rubber soles that allowed people to walk or “sneak” around without a sound. z Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” books were once used as post-World War II propaganda. General Douglas MacArthur’s occupation headquarters chose “The Long Winter” as one of the first American books to be translated into Japanese, in an effort to boost the morale of defeated, starving citizens. German translations soon followed, with a similar goal. z During the mid-1970s, author Anne Fine walked past a shop selling jewellery and old furs, the proprietor of which was a Madame

Doubtfire. Fine recalled the name in 1986 when she wrote her novel “Madame Doubtfire”. Her one request to makers of the film starring Robin Williams and Sally Field was that they “not make the children bratty, and they did indulge me in that”. z Believing he had been cursed for killing two canines, a man in India married a third as an act of atonement. z Michelangelo, renowned painter of the Sistine Chapel and brilliant sculptor to boot, was surprisingly averse to personal hygiene. He also rarely changed his clothes. One of his servants remarked that the artist would spend so much time in his shoes that when he finally did take them off, “the skin came away, like a snake’s, with the boots”. z You might experience “opto-

phobia” while watching a terrifying scene in a horror flick – it’s the fear of opening one’s eyes! z In America, zebras are responsible for more injuries to zookeepers than any other animal. z Your left lung is smaller than your right to make room for your heart.

NOW HERE’S A TIP z “Having a fancy dinner where you’ll serve wine? You can pour box wine into a glass decanter. It will look and taste better because decanting aerates wine.” – O.D. z Set a timer to remember to add softener to your load of laundry, and another for when the load is done. Buzzers can’t always be heard, and it’s best to not let your wet laundry sit. z For oven spillovers, saturate a

washcloth and lay over the mess when the oven has almost cooled. The heat will couple with the moisture to loosen it! z To loosen dirt in window tracks, try this trick: Sprinkle baking soda along the track, and use a detail brush to loosen stuck dirt. Vacuum out debris, and then dust with a lightly damp rag. Should be clean! z “Do you still watch DVDs? I do, and when they get a scratch, you can try this trick: Rub the surface with a little clear lip balm. Buff from centre to edge in a straight line. The balm fills the cracks, making it watchable.” – F.G. z Dollar stores and other discount chains are great places to pick up cleaning supplies, paper goods and school supplies on the cheap. They carry national brands that can save you a bundle.

LEAGUE LEGEND

Ronny fought his way to the top! By GEOFF MANN IN these tough times, my mind has turned to some of the sportspeople who are renowned for having their feats chiselled in local history. One of these is Ron Soden, better known as “Sodo”, who we featured late last year as he celebrated his 80th birthday. Coincidentally, his son Mark celebrated his 30th at the same party – two small men with big hearts who are renowned for fighting well above their weight on the footy field. Ron was renowned for his ability to play any position – a captain’s dream as he slotted in everywhere from hooker to fullback during Macquarie’s golden era from the late ‘50s right through to the mid70s; Mark captained the Australian Schoolboys team on a tour of the British Isles in 1986 and returned to forge a magnificent career with the North Sydney Bears. In May 1960, the 11 stone (70kg) boxer was crowned Middleweight Champion of the West after an impressive three-round Technical Knockout (TKO) against Colin Holden from Gulgong. Macquarie team-mate and lifelong friend Max Low fought on the same card at the Showground. “Soden’s heavy body punching weakened Holden over the final stages of the fight. The Dubbo boy switched his attack to the head and eventually forced the referee to stop the fight and crown him the winner,” was how the Dubbo Liberal reported the bout at the time. Eight weeks later, “Sodo” was Dubbo’s Sportsperson of the Week, retaining his middleweight title against Mudgee’s Pat Fox with an impressive display in the Royal Theatre in Wingewarra Street. By mid 1961, the footballer-boxer’s reputation was enhanced when he scored another threeround TKO at the Showground, this time against Lithgow policeman Ted Doherty. “Soden took advantage of Doherty’s slowness in the opening round, and when the fight was stopped, had an unbeatable lead on points.” It’s interesting to note how prominent the sport was in those days. Dubbo boxers won six of the seven fights that night at the Showground with “Lucky” Coroneos, Colin Brown and “Dutch” Pearce all in action. Spectators rose to their feet when Brown and Pearce went at it, with the former winning on points in a contest that “stirred the crowd”. The nuggetty boxer wasted no time in his next fight, downing Tex Morton with a vicious left hook. The fight was all over in just 36 seconds! By October, Sodo was fighting in the NSW State Amateur semi-finals. The 21-year-old carpenter had a rapid rise, reaching the top tier in his weight division in just 18 months. According to reports of his win over Lyle Bartley of Cessnock, “Soden’s trainers Colin Kirkness and Tom Shannon were elated with their man’s effort”. The first hiccup in Sodo’s career came in November 1962 when unheralded Gilgandra fighter Lindsay Mallison outpointed the champion. That fight proved to be the wake-up call Ronny need-

ed as he blasted through all others to win the NSW title later in the year, and he “righted the ledger” against Mallison with a brutal display in June 1962. It was all over seven seconds from the bell in round one! John Carney, brother of the great Tom “Bomber”, and Bob Townsend showed their credentials. Both Junior State champions put in eye-catching displays. In 1964 Ron was on the cusp of selection in the Australian Boxing team for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. He reached the state finals for the third year in a row

and was again named Sportsman of the Week but his career ended a few weeks later. A cut above the eye in the semi-final proved to be Sodo’s undoing as Australian light middleweight champion Bill Barber went out to reopen the wound. In keeping with amateur boxing rules, the referee stopped the fight in the first round to avoid injury to the gutsy Dubbo sportsman. Soden’s grit was unquestioned; his reputation for toughness remained intact. On the league field the natural born leader was up front with his

beloved Macquarie in 1972 when Kevin Kind took a team of young champions all the way to the grand final against Parkes. Sodo was called up from Reserve Grade throughout the year. Such was the esteem within which he was held that in June, when Kind was injured, selectors chose him as skipper against Condobolin. Ron was captain-coach of the then Blues Reserve Grade team which came from behind to down CYMS 15-9 in the Grand Final in ’72, and was on the bench as Kind’s inexperienced fell to reigning champions Parkes in the big

one. Ron played on for a few more years, filling in whenever the Macquarie club called before pulling the pin in the early 1980s. He was like a father to the many young blokes who came through the ranks and when Touch Footy started in 1975, the team he formed was called Dad’s Army! “They were tremendous days,” Sodo remembered at the Dubbo Ducks Christmas Party. “I had blokes like Ivor Trapman who was in the Ducks with me on the team and we had a lot of fun. The best part of Dad’s Army was it was a family. We played together, drank together and went on some epic road trips at the end of the season,” Sodo laughed with a cheeky glint! Sodo is one of Dubbo’s sporting characters – footballer, boxer, touch player, Duck, occasional golfer. He has “had a crack” at most sports in his illustrious life. Above all, Sodo is held in the highest regard as a mentor and friend. Above all, he has been a loving husband to Beth for over 50 years. The golden couple have reared wonderful children and spread their love of life and family with everyone with whom they have touched. Ron Soden – champion sportsman, better bloke!

RACING

By GEOFF MANN JAKE PEACHEY HOLMES rode five winners at Louth a couple of years ago so a treble last Saturday was no big deal. “I’ve ridden plenty of trebles over the years,” the young hoop told Dubbo Photo News. He was at home in Gulgong 48 hours after piloting Meddlin, Dreams Out West and Dynamite Dan first past the post last Saturday. “Thanks to Racing NSW we’re still able to do what we do. Without them keeping a close check on things there’d be no sport in the bush. Our welfare and that of the horses is their main priority,” Jake was keen to let me know. “You know, when we arrive at the track these days there’s people to take our temperature then we’re straight off to the sheds for a shower before we even get near our horses. Everyone involved in racing knows we must be alert. Our horses are valuable and there are thousands of people across the state who give plenty to keep the sport going. “We appreciate what they do and all of us jockeys are thankful we get the chance to do what we love, knowing that people are looking out for us,” he added with genuine appreciation. Jake was more keen to talk about the big picture than his own feats. Even then, his focus was on the partner under his saddle and not on himself. The 29-year-old is closing in on 300 winners after serving his apprenticeship under Clarry Conners at Warwick Farm before linking up with Brett Thompson in Gulgong. He has already chalked up 26 wins this season, just over halfway to the 49 he rode last year. The tiny hoop has forged excellent partnerships with Brett, and more recently Kody Nestor, a

bloke he has ridden against many times before the Dubbo jockey retired last year. “These blokes bring a lot of experience to the track and are always full of good advice. Us jockeys need to listen to them and all the trainers we ride for because they know their animals,” Jake added. 2018 was a red letter year for Jake as he tasted success in major events. The most notable being the Bathurst Soldiers Saddle with Beau Hoffa, Coonamble Cannonball on board Kenny Succeed, and a start in the Country Championship Final after Good Host flew home at Dubbo. That win was the second time Jake had saluted in a Qualifier. In 2017 he was instrumental in the fairy-tale story of Stonebridge, the horse from back’o’Bourke who captured the imagination of the racing world in its first run on turf. After those two stunning wins, racing journalist Ray Hickson described the boy who grew up in Campbelltown as “a self-confessed former ratbag who has been the upset king of the WRA Country Championships Qualifiers”. Jake rode Sprezzatura for Clint Lundholm in his quest for a third win in the big money Qualifier but unfortunately the only “3” beside his name was at the winning post as Westlink and Sons of Bourke flashed home. Last Saturday, the treble was clinched when Dynamite Dan exploded. Jake says he is an unusual horse and you never know what you’ll get when you’re in the saddle. “Dan the Man is useless in trackwork! You’d never pick him to win a race. Sometimes when I’m on top I tell him ‘you’re kiddin’ arent ya’ and then he just clicks into gear like he did on Saturday – and away we go!” His first winner on what Jake

described as an amazing track in absolutely perfect condition, was Meddelin. “I’m glad it won. It found the right race and celebrated like it was his birthday for trainer Damine Hall.” Then Dreams Out West held on against Matter Of Factor (Clayton Gallagher) to give jockey and trainer a double. “Dreams is a tough little bugger. He just wanted to win,” was Jake’s honest appraisal of the three-yearold filly’s performance. In the treble clincher, Dynamite Dan had to fight off a challenge from Luckenbach Texas who had dropped its rider Anthony Cavallo just after they jumped. “It was a bit unsettling as we approached the post with this horse switching from inside to outside, but Dan held his head,” Jake said. How was it racing with no crowd to lift you home? “To be quite honest, I wasn’t even aware there was no one on the rails, I was just eyeing the fin-

ishing post!” Wellington Boot this weekend? “You know it’s one of us jockeys’ favourite meetings. Two big days of racing and there’s usually a huge crowd on both so it will be very different this year. Love to get a Boot to add to my season’s tally,” he quipped. Given the social isolation rules for life, I asked Jake if he envisaged that lines might be drawn on the tracks – a la Athletics – to keep the horses and jockeys apart. “If they do, then I want lane one,” the happy go lucky rider laughed raucously.

Jake loves racing, he is grateful for the doors that have opened up for him in the west. “I was a bit wild when I was young, a bit of a ratbag. Everyone was telling me that, but since I came out here and I’ve settled with my wife and kids, I am a lot more settled.” Jake Peachey Holmes has a simple philosophy about racing. “I just ride a horse the way it needs to be ridden and if it wins it wins.” It certainly bore fruit last Saturday and with a full book this weekend, who knows...

By GEOFF MANN WHEN one of Australia’s greatest sportspeople, basketballer Lauren Jackson, heard of Molly Croft’s love of the sport, she had a few words of hope for the young champion. Molly is being treated for leukemia and has spent many months over the past few years between Westmead Hospital and her Dubbo home. The 14-year-old hasn’t let anything stop her and has been generous in reaching out to others and the great “Loz” was grateful. “You are doing amazing stuff, Molly. Keep staying positive, keep fighting and hopefully I’ll get to see you shoot some hoops some day,” the basketball legend urged. It’s typical of Lauren that she would spare her time to acknowledge the work of Molly and her family. Lauren was speaking with me after news broke that Australia was to hold the 2022 World Cup. “It wasn’t quite a ‘The winner is Syder-ney’ announcement, but it still sent a chill down my spine when World Basketball revealed that the World Cup was coming home to the Olympic Stadium,”

Lauren said. “I remembered being at home early in the morning when Juan Antonio Samaranch opened the envelope and created that famous announcement. It was spine-chilling. Awesome.” Lauren’s journey to the Olympic and International Halls of Fame began in Albury. “My career started in the back of a car with my parents driving me to Sydney and Melbourne and all over the countryside in NSW and Victoria, anywhere basketball was being played,” she recalled. “A lot of kids these days are in the same boat. They are passionate about the game and just like my parents, they are packing rugs and pillows and heading off on weekends and school hols so they can follow their dreams.” Lauren respects the dedication, desire and determination young players exhibit as they travel thousands of kilometres just to be a part of a basketball team. “The World Cup is going to be very special for this generation,” she said. Lauren’s outstanding career has been captured in “Hoop Dreams Down Under”, the definitive story of Australian men and women who have trodden the boards on

the world’s greatest basketball courts in the US, written by Dubbo’s own Matt Logue. “Matt’s a pretty incredible writer and his passion for the sport and his vision is encapsulated in Hoop Dreams,” Lauren offered. The country girl, who was a member of the Canberra Capitals’ first National Basketball League Premiership team which returned to win again in 2010, was chuffed to see her old club back on top of the WNBL again. “I remember coming to the Dubbo Stadium when I was about 15. I was playing with the AIS team in a curtain raiser when the Capitals played the Sydney Flames.” Since chronic knee injuries prompted her to retire her jersey in 2016, Lauren has become a mum. She mixes up her role as head of the WNBL with caring for her two boy-men hoop throwers. “My youngest is one, and he’ll be about 7’3” (2.20 metres). He’s already shooting hoops – very competitive – and my eldest is three. He will probably finish up about 6’ 8” (2.03m) and become a point guard,” she laughed. “I’m thinking basketball is going to

keep flowing through our family. It’s in the genes!” Good luck buying shoes for those boys! Lauren says she feels for athletes who had been building for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in July. “All of our athletes across the broad range of sports have trained so hard and so methodically for July. Now they will have to go away and relax, re-evaluate and put in place their strategy for 2021. Maybe it will be the break some of the older players need to rest niggling injuries. It might even motivate them to keep playing until after the World Cup here in 2022,” she said, putting a positive spin on the situation. “Tokyo 2021 will certainly be something to look forward to.” On the new rules for social distancing, Lauren says it would not even be a problem if she was still playing. “One advantage I always had was being head and shoulders above most players so whether I was defending or on the attack, I could generally maintain the accepted 1.5 metre distance,” she chuckled. Lauren J – what a champion – and to think she took time out to offer words of encouragement to one of our own.
