pilbaraecho echo what’sh t • Helping those in need Over the holiday season we have seen the tragic floods nearby in the Gascoyne and Queensland where the nation has had to pull together. There are many charities working to assist the victims which you can also donate to! • Our readers Although we were all having a well deserved break, it was promising to get constant calls over the break asking where their Echo was! We’re pleased to say.. we’re back for 2011!

what’snot • Going back to work That’s it. Holiday over. Back to work. ‘nuff said! • Dieting At Christmas, eating the whole cheese board and drinking your body weight in beer may be fun at the time but now you’ve got to work hard to shake it all off. Good luck to those trying to shake of the holiday kilos • Zig Zagging Cyclones At the time of going to press, Cyclone Vince had a mind all of his own and was zig zagging his way towards the coast.

Port Hedland continues to develop Both Port and South Hedland have recently been undergoing development with four major projects being the Multi Purpose Recreation Centre on Hamilton Road, the JD Hardie Youth Centre and a Water Play Themed Park on Cottier Drive and Wallwork Road Bridge. The Multi Purpose Recreation Centre is soon to become a state of the art indoor sports and recreation complex costing over $32.69 million.

• Multi Purpose Recreation Centre, Hamilton Road

Work on the complex is underway and scheduled for completion by May 2012. Kevin Scott Oval is scheduled to reopen for the community and general use by May 2011. The JD Hardie Centre has been closed throughout the Christmas period and is due to reopen late May 2011 with work being undertaken inside the facility. The $9.5 million Centre is the Town’s biggest single investment in young people and is being built with significant financial contributions from many funding partners.

• Wallwork Road Bridge

The $13.16 million Water Play Themed Park project is creating a new family focused park with fun activities for children of all ages and mobility. Work is progressing smoothly and is expected to be completed by August 2011 and will include the first water play facility of its kind in the Pilbara.

• Water-Play Themed Park,Cottier Drive

Finally the pre-works for the construction of the Wallwork Road Bridge are underway and on schedule. A temporary closure of Wallwork Road is to be agreed to enable temporary kerbing/sandbagging works to median island on the side-track, prior to the track being commissioned. This is a Town of Port Hedland project that is being managed by Main Roads WA Pilbara Division. BHP Billiton Iron Ore has provided $24 million of funding towards the project.

Indigenous youth dive into employment The shortage of lifeguards for pools in Port Hedland is no longer a problem, thanks to the Swim for Life program, which offers lifeguard training and employment opportunities to Indigenous youth. Thirteen young Indigenous people are now employed as lifeguards due to the award-winning training program run by YMCA Perth. The Swim for Life program began in 2008 with funding from the Federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. In 2009 BHP Billiton signed on as principal industry partner of the Swim for Life program and has invested $70,000 to date. BHP Billiton is continuing their support next year, allowing the program to offer additional training to all participants and greater opportunities to highachieving graduates. Swim for Life graduate Thierra Clanton has benefited from the additional training, undertaking a nine-day residential pool operations course. Thierra is now the first Indigenous duty manager trainee from Swim for Life. This new role at the Gatwick Aquatic Centre has been a great career

boost for Thierra and she is relishing the challenge. “Swim for Life has provided me with many opportunities I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I now have a career path and an opportunity to mentor and support other young Indigenous kids,” she said. BHP Billiton Iron Ore President, Ian Ashby said, “We are committed to supporting programs like Swim for Life that result in employment opportunities for young Indigenous people.” “BHP Billiton is proud to be associated with such an innovative and successful program and look forward to seeing greater benefits for Indigenous youth and the community in the future,” he said. The Swim for Life program has won multiple awards, the most recent being a 2010 Deadly Award for outstanding achievement in employment and training. The Deadly Awards are the nation’s highest honour for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander excellence. Thierra Clanton and program advisor Tim Turner travelled to Sydney earlier this year to accept the award on behalf of YMCA Perth.

The Pilbara Poet by Elise Batchelor

Everything Leaks Much as I love a rainy day and the grumbly rumbles of thunder, Mother Nature has been more than throwing her weight around recently. 2010 has been swallowed whole by climatic craziness and hopefully our own cyclone season will bring no more grief. The ABC North West gang are tireless (even when tired out) during wild weather events, so don’t forget to keep your radio tuned and give them the thumbs up on Facebook. And now for some light relief… Zumba zumba badabada boomba beating his rhythm aloud. Sitting, thinking, not quite sinking tall man tired but proud. ‘And a beer and a cheer for a Happy New Year!’ were the words that were heartily spoke by this guy on the log with his gumboots and frog, yes, a feisty and feral young bloke.

And Canberra scored a strine PM with Kevin and Tony piffed. But Karratha got a regional cabernet and you should have copped a whiff of plans for Pilbara Cities, like London, Paris and Rome, or at least a new gate or at any rate a brand new garden gnome.

His hair was crusty, clothing musty, eyes drooped with sandbags hung with stoic aplomb sinking on and on like the folds of old cow dung. This Andrew Collins nibbled stale stollen, pondered on life here. Taking time out from his muddy plight to reflect on the very last year.

And twiddling thumbs for decades (since Joan in ’75), Hedland, cool, got its hospital! So now if we’re sick, we’ll thrive. Just in time for our summer clime and the rain La Niña was bringing and it poured and it drowned and it sloshed all around ‘til Carnarvon was hardly singing.

Lindsay Lohan lost the plot and finally had to go dry. But it couldn’t compare to Marble Bar, which ran out of beer, oh my! Melbourne Cup ran hot to trot with silks and ladies in hats, but Pannawonica’s rodeo iconica starred a wild old chap.

And he thought about this weather, the craziest thing of all, with forty degrees and irukandjis, (oh boy, they have a gall). And muddle, fuddle, sitting in his puddle, sun beating down on his brow, with his umbrella up and his dacks in the mud, Andrew’s brain was frazzled now.

Lady Gaga dressed in meat from her head to her teetering toes. But she’d noth-ing on those trucks which run into beasts wand’ring out on the roads. Sarah Murdoch looked like a right chook reading the wrong model’s name. But at Pilbara Girl, we were all in a whirl when Synarrah Murphy’s came.

And finding some shade he flicked on the radio to hear other news of the day, with Julian Assange and his radical plan for dobbing in pollies, but hey, Andrew thought, that’s funny, for with Oz still pretty bloody floody, forget WikiLeaks, now it’s EverythingLeaks, gonna build me a hundred foot cubby.

Results in from police Christmas Crackdown Between 17 and 18 December 2010 Police across the Pilbara took part in Operation Unite, a nation-wide crackdown on alcohol fuelled violence. Over the 48 hours of the operation officers had cause to speak to 269 people, resulting in 9 charges for a range of offences including disorderly behaviour, drink-driving and unauthorised driving. In addition 1 move on notice, 1 juvenile caution, 22 liquor cautions and 6 traffic cautions were issued along with 16 liquor infringements and 1 traffic infringement. 124 RBTs were also conducted and 1 vehicle seized. Pilbara District Superintendent John Ballantyne said, “Generally, most venues and people were well behaved and this, along with the rain helped keep a lot of people in doors.

Never the less, a continuing trend in drinking unlawfully was noticed, especially by people drinking liquor in the street and in motor vehicles, particularly in mini-buses ferrying people from one venue to another. Superintendent Ballantyne stated that fines of up to $2000 could be imposed by the Courts with police issuing on-thespot fines of $200, if people drank alcohol unlawfully such as in cars or on the street. “Aside from the anti-social aspects of this behaviour which is certainly unbecoming, it also makes for a very expensive drink for those caught by police with an open container of beer in their hands and I would ask that they consider this before acting in this way”, he said.

It’s not too late for some school holiday fun Although the school summer holidays are already half way through, the JD Hardie Centre are still keeping the kids entertained with lots to do.

• The North West Expo 2010 attracted a big crowd.

North West Expo a unique opportunity With over 6,000 visitors and a proven track record Australia’s North West Expo is the major annual showcase for the Pilbara and Kimberley regions. PR and Marketing Manager for North West Expo, Philippa Hansen will be visiting Port Hedland next week to hold a display at South Hedland Shopping Centre, a Chamber afterhours and individual meetings on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 January to present this exciting business opportunity.

“Whether you’re launching a product, expanding your business or getting information to the people who matter, exhibition at Australia’s North West Expo will show the North West you mean business.” The North West Expo acts as a catalyst for innovation, growth and networking to create positive outcomes for the region where exhibitors can sell, launch and promote product, network, promote a cause or increase their membership.

A display at Centro Karratha and individual meetings will be held on Tuesday 18 & Wednesday 19 January to present this exciting business opportunity.

At this early stage, two Pilbara businesses, Cold Tech West and Karijini Eco Retreat have already signed up to exhibit at North West Expo 2011.

North West Expo is the premier showcase for business, education, employment, government, industry, arts, tourism, recreation and culture.

In late 2010 North West Expo conducted its first Strategic Plan that highlighted the importance of a regional focus and encouraging regional involvement.

The not-for-profit community event strives to be representative of the whole of the North West region including the Pilbara, Kimberley and Northern Territory with participation from Derby, Karratha, Port Hedland and Darwin steadily increasing each year.

The Guest Town exhibition space will add strength and diversity to Expo’s existing role of showcasing and promoting the region, and seeks collaboration by locally representative organisations and governments to promote their successes, contributions and opportunities in our unique region at a major industry event.

The site is available through an application process in which one town or shire from the Pilbara or Kimberley will be selected. Members of the public are invited to attend North West Expo that last year welcomed AFL legend Kevin Sheedy and Fortescue Metals boss Andrew Forrest amongst other unique experiences and entertainment. “For the people of the Pilbara and Kimberley it is an experience that is diverse, entertaining, informative and affordable” said Miss Hansen. Information will be on display at South Hedland Shopping Centre on Monday 17 January and at Centro Karratha on Wednesday 19 January and appointments on these days are available by calling Miss Hansen on 9193 7008. North West Expo invites all Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and Industry members to afterhours and short presentation at the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Monday 17 January from 5pm.

There will be heaps of activities for the children to get involved in including water volleyball and many games. The fun day will run from 2pm to 5pm and entry is $8.50 and will suit children aged seven to 12 years. On Wednesday 19 January another fun day will be held at the Matt Dann Cultural Centre where the children will join in games before and after watching the new movie ‘Legends of the Guardians’ (this movie will also be open to the public). The day will run from 12pm to 5pm and will cost

It will be suitable for children aged five to 12 years. Coming towards the end of the holidays on Monday 24 January the JD Hardie Centre and Matt Dann Cultural Centre will be holding a Thong Decorating Workshop at the Matt Dann Cultural Centre. The children will decorate their thongs in preparation for the town’s Australia Day celebrations. The day will run from 9am to 2pm and all children aged six to 12 years are welcome with an entry fee of $8.50 per child. For more information on any of the above events please call the JD Hardie Centre on 9158 9380.

“Last year several Port Hedland and Karratha based businesses gained extensive benefits through exhibition and we will be continuing positive dialogue with businesses, government, industries and organisations on our trip this January,” said Miss Hansen, North West 2011 Public Relations and Marketing Manager.

“We are hoping to gain interest and involvement from Regional Chambers, Development Commissions, Visitors Centres regional Shires and Towns through offering incentives and a new initiative of a Guest Town site”.

With similar challenges to businesses and development opportunities in the Pilbara and Kimberley the event presents opportunities for locally operating businesses to build their profile alongside corporations and network with those tendering in the region to provide existing local services and solutions.

On Tuesday 18 January the JD Hardie Centre and YMCA are inviting all children to a fun day at the South Hedland Aquatic Centre.

$11 per child which includes games, movie ticket and snacks.

WaterCorp reassure Pilbara residents The Water Corporation has moved to reassure Pilbara residents that a $4.3 million water-saving program called H2ome Smart is a genuine initiative. Water Corporation Acting North West Regional Business Manager Michael Wright said a handful of residents had expressed their concern that the program, which offered free waterwise coaching and waterwise product upgrades, seemed too good to be true. “The majority of residents will have received a letter about H2ome Smart and calls, door knocking and meter reading is now underway for residents in Pilbara towns, as we try to maximise participation in the program,” said Mr Wright. “We have employed contractors (ENV and IA Group) and their team of skilled Eco-coaches to make these initial phone calls, door knocks, take meter readings and provide one-on-one water- saving advice to those who do sign up. “It is these activities, which a handful of residents have raised concerns over, but I can assure you that the program is genuine”. “Our contractors have all been supplied with identification cards and are authorised by the Corporation to undertake these activities. However, if any resident is concerned about the authenticity of our contractors, or the program, I encourage them to call the Water Corporation on 13 13 75.” Mr Wright said the program targeted households

in Karratha, Point Samson, Dampier, Wickham, Onslow, Port Hedland and South Hedland. “It aims to save more than 1700 million litres or about 706 Olympic-sized swimming pools of drinking water each year. “As well as saving water we hope to educate people in the longer-term about why it’s important to be waterwise,” Mr Wright said. Mr Wright said the program included free waterwise product upgrades of devices such as dual flush toilets, showerheads, flow controllers and tap aerators for all participating households. “The program will also include personalised one-onone coaching to encourage water wise behaviour, water saving workshops, sustainable gardening sessions, and where possible, we will fix leaking taps and toilets completely free of charge. “To achieve the water saving we need as many people as possible to participate and play their part in saving water. “I strongly urge all residents to take part in the free H2ome Smart program and take advantage of the free waterwise product upgrades,” he said. If you live in one of the participating towns but do not receive a letter and would like to participate in the program visit www.watercorporation. com.au/h2omesmart or call (08) 6218 4246. The H2ome Smart program is jointly funded by the Water Corporation and the Australian Government’s Water for the Future initiative.

• Pressure for water supply from Harding Dam will be relieved by a six gigalitre-a-year desalination plant in the West Pilbara.

Pilbara water servicing connections approved Water Minister Bill Marmion announced in late December that a further 40 water service connections have been approved in the Pilbara to support growth in the region and the Government’s Pilbara Cities vision. Mr Marmion said the development of an additional 767 new dwellings in Onslow, Karratha, Port and South Hedland - which had depended on the availability of a water supply - could now go ahead. “As the new Minister for Water, I am very pleased to announce that following extensive investigations by the Water Corporation, we are now able to give the green light for hundreds of new dwellings in these towns,” he said. “These new applications are in addition to other recent approvals and are a further demonstration of the Government’s commitment to moving ahead with the

Pilbara Cities vision.” The Minister  said drilling investigations at the existing Onslow source, the Cane River borefield, were under way and final results would be known early next year. “The Water Corporation is confident there is enough additional capacity to immediately approve six pending water service applications, representing 37 dwellings,” he said. “These new connections are in addition to the 110 already approved, but still to be developed in Onslow.” Mr Marmion  said drilling was also under way at the existing Yule River source to cater for upcoming growth in Port and South Hedland. “Results so far are highly encouraging allowing 25 connections, representing 239 dwellings, to be approved,” he said. “This brings the total approved new connections

in these East Pilbara towns to 1,496.” For the West Pilbara, the Minister acknowledged nine new water service applications had been approved following October’s announcement of a six gigalitre-a-year seawater desalination plant, to be commissioned by April 2013. These new approvals represented 491 dwellings, including two worker camp expansions. A further 1,350 water service connections have been approved in recent years. Mr Marmion  said the Water Corporation had a $645million capital works program over the next four years to upgrade and build new infrastructure to meet demand in the region. This included the West Pilbara desalination plant.

Grants available for community groups The Pilbara Development Commission have announced that they currently have two grants open for regional development projects in the Pilbara under the Royalty for Regions Program. The Small Grants Program is for grants of up to $10,000 ideal for community groups and not for profits looking for assistance with activities that bring benefit to Pilbara Communities. Perhaps you (or a group you know) have equipment that requires upgrading or a

special project coming up? $67,500 is available in this round. Applications close 4:30pm, 28 February 2011. The Contestable round of the Regional Grant Scheme is also open. This round is an annual opportunity for local governments, community groups and in limited instances, private organisations, to put up projects for funding ranging upwards from $5,000. $1 Million is available in this round across the Pilbara.

Successful projects will be announced in July 2011 and funded in the 2011/2012 financial year. Applications  close 4:30pm, 10 March 2011. Details on the types of projects and applicants that will be considered are available on the Commission website www. pdc.wa.gov.au or telephone Regional Grants Officer Kathryn Moelands, TuesdayThursday, on 9173 8407.

Airport fees to be discounted for local pensioners Pensioners, PATS (Patient Assisted Travel Scheme) patients and those holding a current healthcare or senior’s healthcare card are among those set to benefit from changes to parking fees at Karratha Airport. At its latest meeting, Roebourne Shire Council voted in support of a concession scheme that would grant a 50 per cent discount to those least able to afford paid parking at WA’s busiest regional airport. It also extended the free parking period from one to two hours, a move that is good news for all local residents particularly those from nearby communities. Shire of Roebourne president Nicole Lockwood said paid parking technology was expected to be fully operational by March 2011. “The introduction of paid parking at Karratha Airport is crucial to the Shire of Roebourne’s ability to continue to provide the high level of service expected from one of Australia’s busiest airports,” she said. “Karratha Airport is a self-funded entity, with revenue received mainly from aeronautical related companies and not ratepayers. “The income derived from future parking charges will assist in funding infrastructure

developments such as the proposed terminal upgrade which would give Karratha Airport the capacity to service international carriers.” Across the nation many regional airports, with comparative passenger movements, have introduced paid parking including Broome, Alice Springs, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Launceston and Newcastle. Karratha is the last airport on the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economic’s list of Top 20 Australian Airports by passenger traffic to introduce paid parking. With the cost of long-term parking starting at $10 a day, and with very few airports offering free parking of more than half an hour, the proposed fee structure at Karratha Airport is quite reasonable. Council also requested a report on usage patterns and income derived from each of the payment categories be provided 12 months following the implementation of paid parking at Karratha Airport. Keep an eye out in the Pilbara Echo or at www.roebourne. wa.gov.au for more information about the introduction of paid parking at Karratha Airport.

She said the new Medicare sites meant local customers will be able to use Medicare teleclaiming service to claim their rebates with greater ease and register or update bank account details, order a new or duplicate Medicare card, request a copy of the Medicare benefit tax statement and update

Ms Plibersek said the 60 sites also offer Medicare online services via Centrelink self-service computers so customers can view and print their Medicare claims history, Safety Net balance, tax benefit statement, and organ donor registration details. “The closest Medicare office to some of these towns can be hundreds of kilometres away.” “These new locations will make it much easier for people living in rural and regional Australia to claim rebates and access other important Medicare services.”

(20 December 2010 – 28 February 2011) API Management Pty Ltd (API) is proposing to implement the Anketell Point Port Development Proposal (the Proposal) at Anketell Point, approximately 25 km north east of Karratha, Western Australia. The proposal involves the establishment and operation of a multi-user deep water port including iron ore stockpiling, transfer and ship loading facilities. The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) determined that the Proposal required assessment at the level of Public Environmental Review (PER) under the Western Australian Environment Protection Act 1986. The then Commonwealth Minister for Environment Protection, Heritage and the Arts determined that the Proposal (EPBC2009/5120) is a controlled action under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act), and is to be assessed by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPaC) at the level of Public Environment Report (draft PER). The controlling provisions under the EPBC Act are: • Sections 18 and 18A (listed threatened species and communities); • Sections 20 and 20A (listed migratory species); and • Sections 23 and 24A (Commonwealth marine area). A coordinated assessment under both the EP Act and the EPBC Act is to be undertaken for this Proposal, based on the one environmental assessment document. API has prepared and published for public review a PER in accordance with Western Australian Government procedures under the EP Act. This document, also referred to as a draft PER, has been prepared in accordance with Part 8, and published for public review in accordance with Section 98, of the EPBC Act. Hard copies of the PER/draft PER may be purchased for $10 (including postage and packaging) or a CD version is available free of charge from: API Management Pty Ltd Level 2 Aquila Centre 1 Preston Street Como WA 6152 (61) 8 9423 0222 Copies of the PER/draft PER may also be downloaded from www.apijv.com.au.

Jeff has worked at the Shire of Ashburton for 4 years and was previously the Executive Manager of Engineering Services. Jeff has a wealth of experience both in local Government and the private sector. Shire President Cr Greg Musgrave said he welcomed the appointment of Jeff and looked forward to working with him in the future. “To assume a leadership role right now presents exciting and rewarding new challenges and opportunities for Jeff.” “Jeff and his staff will take our great Shire forward to create sustainable communities people can call home.” Jeff confirmed he already plans to bring about change in pursuit of strategic aspirations including

implementing the Shire’s Business and Organisational Structure Review. Jeff said it was critical the Shire continued to negotiate profitable outcomes stemming from anticipated resource investment. “He will take control of our current Strategic Plan to ensure targets are met. It’s about change and preparing our Shire for the future.” “In recent times the Shire announced major projects it will undertake to begin the transformation and revitalisation of our towns, again Jeff will be at the helm managing these projects together with others planned such as upgrades to the Tom Price sporting precinct,” Cr Musgrave said.

When questioned in relation to the matter, Shire President, Councillor Greg Musgrave said “This is an extremely significant step in the development of the Ashburton North Hydrocarbon Hub, and particularly Chevron’s Wheatstone LNG project. This latest step in the planning process builds on the earlier, extensive planning work undertaken by the Shire, to establish guidelines that ensure co-ordinated, industrial development occurs within the ANSIA itself, and also ensures that all development is consistent with Council’s objectives in relation to meeting the infrastructure and social requirements of the nearby town of Onslow.” “Council has promoted it’s views in relation to the co-ordination of development within the ANSIA and the need to consider the implications of development on the social and physical infrastructure of Onslow at every opportunity and is pleasing to say that, as

Shire of Ashburton initiate changes to town plan for Wheatstone project The Shire of Ashburton has initiated changes to its town planning scheme to allow Chevron Australia to progress the development of the company’s Wheatstone LNG plant within the Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area (ANSIA), located approximately 12 kilometers south west of the town of Onslow, in the Pilbara. It is proposed that the ANSIA accommodate Chevron’s Wheatstone LNG plant, BHP Billiton’s Macedon Domestic Gas Plant, as well as other hydrocarbon related industries based on the nearby Carnarvon and Exmouth Basins. It is also proposed that a common port facility, operated by Dampier Port Authority be included within the area. Council, at its ordinary meeting held on 15 December 2010, considered a request from Chevron Australia that Council amend its town planning scheme and that it also adopt Structure Plan for the whole ANSIA. The purpose of these planning documents is to facilitate the development of the Wheatstone LNG Project in a planned manner, which reflects

Pilbara dancers head to the United States Michael Leslie; founding director of the Michael Leslie Foundation for the Performing Arts (2009 AbAF regional Award; 2010 Red Ochre Award) will travel to Los Angeles next week at the invitation of the Lula Washington Dance Theatre to participate in the 23rd Annual International Association of Blacks in Dance conference January 27 – 31. Michael will be accompanied by Bernadette Walong-Sene (Bangarra Dance; Theatre; NAISDA Dance College) who is choreographing a short

dance work ‘Repatriation’ for Aboriginal dancers Kiefer and Eugene Lyndon and young Pilbara dancer Treya Long. The conference will honour Michael as one of the pioneers of contemporary Aboriginal dance. To the best of our knowledge this will be the first time an Australian Indigenous dancer has been honoured by this conference. Michael and Bernadette will give a talk on dance in Australia; teach a movement workshop and

present ‘Repatriation’. This will be a unique experience for the young Pilbara performers. Both Kiefer and Eugene have not been out of the country so this experience will really open their eyes to a new world of possibilities. The foundation would like to thank Rio Tinto Ltd, Gumala Aboriginal Corporation, the Shire of Roebourne, Royalties for Regions and Astron Engineering Ltd for their assistance in making this dream a reality.

A clear vision for 2011? By Nicky Arthur, Liveinbalance@nickyarthur.com

Beginning a new year can be an opportunity to reflect on the last year and take a moment to set clear visions for this year. The one quality that all leaders have in common is they set clear and exciting goals. Have you taken a moment out of your holiday time to sit down and write your goals, dreams and intentions down for this year? Most happy and successful people commit to doing this. It is ok to dream, but for anything to manifest or succeed you must have clear intentions and commit them to paper.

Make this year one of the best years than ever before. Don’t cut yourself short on living a full happy and successful life. Sure money is important, but the decision and commitment you make to become the best you can be is far more exciting. What can you do this year to help improve yourself and your life? Those things that have been bubbling away in your mind, the things you have been thinking about doing or dreaming, make it happen this year. It will stimulate your brain and unleash your creativity. The happier, healthier and positive you become makes it easier to attract more love, abundance, and

more opportunities into your life. But there is more to it than changing mindset. You have to be proactive and set an action plan. You know how quickly 2010 went and 2011 will be the same. Time is not designed to stand still, everything keeps evolving. As human beings we must grow, learn and evolve with it. Once you have set your clear vision turn it into an action plan. Live an even happier, healthier, and successful year this year. Nicky Arthur is an author, Yoga Teacher and Workshop Presenter.

Emma Rose Brinham 11th January 2011 Emma Rose Brinham was born at the Nickol Bay Hospital on 11 January 2011 weighing 7lbs 10oz. Older sister Hayley can’t wait for her to come home. Emma’s parents would like to thank the fantastic team at Nickol Bay Hospital for all their hard work and care.

Government to support your New Year’s resolutions New Year’s resolutions to get active, eat well and quit smoking will be promoted throughout the year and beyond by the Australian National Preventive Health Agency, which was formally established on 1 January 2011. “We know that preventative health measures work, that’s why we are supporting Australians who are ready to get active, eat well and adopt healthier lifestyles”, the Minister for Health and Ageing, Nicola Roxon said. “Keeping healthy and out of hospital is a key focus for the Gillard Government and this is supported by our $872 million investment in preventative health – the largest single

investment ever of its kind. “Potentially avoidable diseases account for around 20 per cent of Australia’s total health care expenditure and with more than 60 per cent of Australians aged over 18 either overweight or obese, there has never been a more important time to tackle preventable diseases. “Supporting Australians to avoid chronic diseases by leading healthier lifestyles and reduce the burden on our health system is common sense”, Ms Roxon said. Announcing the appointment, Ms Roxon said the first task for Dr Galbally would be to develop five-year strategic and annual operational plans to be considered by all Australian health ministers. “These plans will set out the key strategic with priorities for the agency,” Ms Roxon said. “This agency will be the Government’s Wed 2nd Feb adviser on preventive health issues.
