From art to transport

new fire station Newcastle is a step closer to a new fire station with Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Mike Gallacher, announcing plans for a ‘superstation’ during a visit last week. Funding to the tune of $700,000 has been allocated in the 2013-14 State Budget for the first stage of the project and Mr Gallacher said Fire and Rescue NSW are currently searching for a suitable location in the Lambton area.

A

n additional $5.45 million in Federal funding for the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange, announced by Charlton MP, Greg Combet, last week, will come at the expense of the Newcastle Art

Gallery redevelopment. The $5.45 million is part of the $7 million the Federal Government had committed to the gallery redevelopment under the Regional Development Australia Fund, but in light of Newcastle City Council and the State Government’s failure to commit to funding the project, Mr Combet said the Government was forced to reallocate the funds.

“Unfortunately, the project in the city for the art gallery hasn’t been able to proceed and reach its milestone...once that was clear to the Government, I made sure that I jumped in pretty quickly to make sure the money stayed in the Hunter...and that it went to the number one infrastructure priority, which is the Glendale Interchange,” Mr Combet explained.

Newcastle MP Sharon Grierson expressed her disappointment at the move, calling it a “missed opportunity” and placed blame on the State and Local Governments. The $5.45 million will be used to fund the relocation of high voltage powerlines, for the protection of an oil pipeline and to construct around 110 metres of retaining wall. @amelia_parrott

Excitement builds as sleep deprivation looms

f, like me, you’ve just recovered from the tension-filled, late night viewing of the first Ashes Test, you’ll no doubt be feeling a mix of excitement and nervous anticipation for the second Test, which starts tomorrow (Thursday) our time. (You may also be feeling anxious at the prospect of sitting through another nine tests this year, with back-to-back Ashes in the UK and Australia, if the first Test is anything to go by. Or is that just me?) Being played at the historic and symbolic home of cricket, Lords, the second Test will see both England and Australia wanting to start their campaigns afresh. The undoubted star of the first match was 19-year-old debutant spin bowler, Ashton Agar, who managed a brilliant and convincing 98 on debut, smashing records and becoming Australia’s newest sporting darling. So much of Agar’s innings was refreshing. But it was his modus operandi of playing ‘his own game’, as he described it, that was the key. By not being afraid to have a hit, take the unconventional run and,

of Origin clash. Without skipper Paul Gallen and playmaker Jarryd Hayne, NSW will need to dig very, very deep to make, and take, their opportunities. Go NSW, and go Australia!

Ashton Agar PHOTO: Cricket Australia

crucially, to not be intimidated by the occasion, Agar managed to achieve something incredible, yet at the same time, with his obvious skill and talent, inevitable. It was a tough ask, especially on debut during a first Ashes Test on English soil, but somehow Agar managed it. So often across all sports and at all levels we see people who are incredibly talented, who have put in the hard work and who have been recognised for their performances, fail to take their opportunities.

*** I received a call from a reader during the week about last week’s column, in which I wrote about the recent “sobering-up cell” trial in Sydney where police were given powers to lock up people who were intoxicated and who refused to move on. This reader quite rightly pointed out to me that referring to the problem as being “alcohol-fuelled” is not really taking into account the full story. This is because it is not only alcohol that is behind late night violent incidents; it is also drugs like methamphetamines, commonly ‘ice’, and caffeine concoctions including energy drinks, that make up the heady cocktail that people consume on a night out. “Substance-fuelled violence” was suggested as the more accurate term, and on that, I stand corrected.

Minister announces plans to build large, modern fire station at Lambton Amelia Parrott

N

ewcastle is a step closer to a new fire station with Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher, announcing plans for a ‘super-station’ during his visit last week. Funding to the tune of $700,000 has been allocated from the 2013-14 State Budget for the first stage of the project and Mr Gallacher said Fire and Rescue NSW are currently searching for a suitable location in the Lambton area. “The new super-station will house full-time fire fighters from Hamilton Fire Station, retained fire fighters from New Lambton Fire Station and possibly also Lambton Fire Station,” he said. Mr Gallacher said the existing stations could no longer cope with the demands of modern fire fighting. “They are very small and difficult to work in, particularly with the needs of modern fire fighters and the equipment they need to work,” he said. “When you do get the opportunity to visit some of the more modern facilities, you see the ways in which they allow for growth in the area.” He also said a new facility is needed to better cater to the needs of female staff. “Many of these facilities were not built with women fire fighters in mind,” he said. “Now, with more and women joining the ranks, they need the normal features of a working environment; change areas, locker rooms, bathrooms, showers, etcetera.”

Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher, with Fire and Rescue NSW staff

Jaimie Abbott Liberal candidate for Newcastle

Candidates square

“In 2007 after I finished working for Bob Baldwin [Paterson MP], I made the conscious decision to join the Australian Defence Force to serve my nation, I then made the conscious decision to go to Afghanistan to fight for my nation and now I’ve made the conscious decision to fight for the people of Newcastle.” • Served in Afghanistan for six months as public affairs advisor • President of the Hunter Animal Rescue • Once played Rizzo in a production of Grease • Supports the coal industry • Believes Labor has neglected Newcastle since Federation

Sharon Claydon Labor candidate for Newcastle “My decision-making has always been guided by three strong Labor core principles, equality, social justice and democracy, and it is these core principles that are integral to Newcastle’s future.” • Former Newcastle City Councillor • Spent several years working as a jillaroo at Fitzroy Crossing, WA • Footy fanatic • Pro marriage equality • Would support creative industries in Newcastle if elected

Our Federal hopefuls had plenty to say about a Amelia Parrott

T

he Federal seats of Shortland and Newcastle have a strong history of Labor dominance, but will the Liberal candidates have enough luck on polling day to turn the tide? That was the question asked by Dr Jim Jose, an associate professor in politics at the University of Newcastle, as he opened the Newcastle Institute’s Federal Election Candidate Forum at Newcastle City Hall last week; and it is one many voters will be asking themselves as the election draws nearer. The forum was the first time Labor Party candidates, Member for Shortland, Jill Hall, and Sharon Claydon (Newcastle) and Liberal Party candidates Jaimie Abbott (Newcastle) and John Church (Shortland) have come together to publically debate issues affecting their respective electorates. Candidates fielded questions submitted by the public covering everything from the return of Kevin Rudd to marriage equality.

Each candidate agreed that Mr Rudd returning to the role of PM would have an impact on their campaign. “Labor with Kevin Rudd is the same old horse with a different jockey,” Ms Abbott claimed, while Ms Hall hit back in support of Mr Rudd. “I’m the only one here who knows Kevin Rudd and has worked with him and he is open to people...and consultative.” Ms Hall and Ms Claydon both said they are on the record in support of same-sex marriage. Ms Abbott refused to comment on how she would vote if she was elected and a conscience vote on the issue was

held, while Mr Church said he believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. The Greens Party, whose candidate in the 2010 federal election, Newcastle City Councillor Michael Osborne, polled 15 per cent of the primary vote, was not invited to take part in the forum. Despite disapproval from Greens supporters in attendance, Newcastle Institute chairman, Ross Kerridge, explained that the decision was made because based off preferences only, the major parties could determine the outcome of the seats. @amelia_parrott

Russia falls here and Mr Rudd has strongly indicated that he would like to see Prime Ministerial representation at the meeting. • September 14 – This is the date that Julia Gillard nominated. Mr Rudd is certain not to abide by her provisions. It’s also the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur. • September 21 – School holidays in the eastern states – including NSW. This weekend also takes in the AFL preliminary final. Although, this week, a senior government minister said the prelims were not an impediment to holding an election. • September 28 – AFL Grand Final. NRL preliminary finals. • October 5 – NRL grand final. • October 12, 19, 26 – Any of these three dates are looking good. • November 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 – Kevin Rudd wouldn’t risk a November poll. The pressure from the Coalition would be too great and he could risk voter backlash. So, keep October clear. Maybe.

ell, well, well…It seems we now have a competition on our hands. Kevin Rudd has seized back the leadership and Tony Abbott for the first time in a long time is on the back foot. The return of Kevin Rudd has rattled the Coalition and its once fearless leader. The resurrection shouldn’t have come as a huge surprise – but the Opposition seem like they’ve been caught sans strategy. The polls show it’s now neck and neck. It could be a honeymoon period, but the scary thing for Mr Abbott is voters just don’t like him. But, of course, none of this matters until election day – which brings me to the million dollar question. When will we be able to cast our vote? Everyone and anyone is offering their own prediction – there are 21 possible choices. Public holidays, football grand finals and time constraints rule many Saturdays out – and the law requires election campaigns run for no less than 33 days. I’m going to go with October for the reasons outlined below: • July 20, 27 – It can’t be anytime in this month as there’s still policy to sort out and it would breach the time provisions in the electoral act. • August 3, 10, 17 – These would still be a massive conflict when it comes to time restraints for the local government referendum. • August 24, 31 – Still conflicts with local government referendum requirements. There are also two scheduled sitting weeks here – so we could be going back to parliament for a fortnight of parliamentary debate. • September 7 – The G20 Summit in

e all know people who are working hard to make our region a better place. These great people are often unsung heroes in the community, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If you know an individual, business or community group who are making a significant contribution to the Hunter region, nominate them for a Regional Achievement and Community Award.

The awards applaud and acknowledge those working in rural and regional areas helping to support and enhance social, economic, commercial and environmental prosperity in their region; and provide an opportunity to say thanks to those who work tirelessly throughout the Hunter. To nominate someone, visit www. awardsaustralia.com. Nominations close on Friday, August 2.

had the pleasure last week of being part of the announcement by Federal Member for Charlton Greg Combet that a further $5.45 million funding for the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange will be coming our way. The $5.45 million funding injection will move us much closer to delivering the whole project, which will ensure vital links between employment opportunities, residential growth areas and national transport routes. The new money will go towards relocating electrical infrastructure, protecting the oil pipeline and earthworks to prepare for construction of the Pennant Street bridge between Glendale and Cardiff. These funds are in addition to the $7 million already committed by the Federal Government and the $15 million grant from the State Government. Council itself has committed $10 million towards the project. I’m proud of all the work Council staff and our local members have

The Aged Care Experts

If you or someone you love needs Aged Care…

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

The Newcastle Post

Let us find the solution that’s right for you

10

If you or a loved one have reached the point of needing to enter residential aged care, we understand how difficult coming to terms with this can be. We also understand exactly how confusing and complex the aged care system can seem. Our team has worked in the aged care industry for many years. In actual fact, we have about 50 years of combined aged care experience, which has provided us with the expertise we require to assist you on your journey. Over the years we have each spoken to countless people who come to us for information on where to begin and what to do. Most people aren’t familiar with the residential aged care system or how it works. Most are upset, confused and very anxious about

what they can do to ensure that their loved one ends up in an Aged Care Service that is right for them. Having managed aged care facilities for the past 16 years, it is fair to say that no two are the same and what suits one person may not suit the next. At the Aged Care Experts, we aim to understand your needs and preferences in choosing a suitable facility. We then use our aged care networks and experience to make your best placement possible. We will sit down with you and those who share your decision making and find out exactly what is important to you! We then go about our business and do everything for you – paperwork, arrange tours, negotiate with facilities and organise your admission. We

done since 1996 to try and secure funding for this vital infrastructure project and in particular, since 2011 when Council took the lead in the delivery of the project. In 2011, all Hunter councils unanimously agreed that the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange in Glendale was the region’s top infrastructure priority. The Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange will be a major connection between Glendale and Cardiff, providing an important transit interchange to meet the future transport needs of the Lower Hunter Region. This is another example of direct Federal funding to local government, helping to get essential infrastructure projects happening in regional Australia. Australians will be given the opportunity to have their say on direct federal funding to local communities in the upcoming local government referendum. I encourage people to vote ‘yes’ in the referendum.

take the stress out of finding an Aged Care Facility that is right for you! Even if you are in an aged care facility already, but aren’t happy, we can help you find another, more suitable, aged care facility. Stay in control of you future and let us help get you the care you want and deserve. Too many people leave thinking about this until it’s too late. They end up in hospital and then are placed in an aged care facility because a bed is available. This is not how we want your aged care experience to end up. Call our friendly team to see how we can help you. Our team are dedicated to you and will lead you every step of the way.

Criminal element the target as Govt cracks down on tattoo industry Amelia Parrott

T

attoo artists across the State will be required to obtain a three-year license to trade from October 1 under new changes introduced by the NSW Government designed to stamp out organised crime. From October, unlicensed corporations will face fines of $11,000 for each day they continue to operate without a licence, while individuals will be fined $5,500 per day. Minister for Fair Trading, Anthony Roberts, said the new legislation would protect law-abiding tattoo artists. “This legislation is about protecting people that are doing the right thing, the artists, the professionals, the people with all of this talent,” he said. “My clear message to the good people in the industry is you’ve got nothing to worry about, this is about looking after you. “To the other people that are using the industry for nefarious purposes or as fronts for organised crime, those days are over.” Member for Charlestown, Andrew Cornwell, said measures had been introduced to help artists in the Hunter adjust to the changes. “The Hunter is a mecca for high quality body art and people travel not just from other cities in NSW but from other States in Australia to have high quality body art done. “What we’re going to do to make life easier, certainly for artists in my area, is organise to have a Fair Trading official

Minister for Fair Trading, Anthony Roberts and Charlestown MP, Andrew Cornwell, watch on as Joel Speelman tattoos Chris Kranias

meet with them to work them through the paperwork, so we can help them comply.” Owner of Impact Tattoos and Body Piercing at Cardiff, Scott Kelb, said

the changes would also help weed out “backyard artists” whose work can expose customers to potential health risks. “Not only can you end up with poor

quality work [with backyard artists], but you run the risk of catching blood born diseases,” Mr Kelb said. @amelia_parrott

elebrations were held throughout Newcastle and Lake Macquarie last week as part of NAIDOC Week. The annual event seeks to celebrate Indigenous culture and recognise the unique contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make in Australian society. Newcastle City Council began its week of celebrations with a flag raising ceremony officiated by Awabakal Newcastle Aboriginal Co-Op at Newcastle City Hall. Following the flag rising ceremony, attendees marched to the Foreshore Park for a solidarity concert, which featured Aboriginal artists from a

variety of music genres. Lake Macquarie City Council hosted a similar event that included Lake Macquarie Mayor, Jodie Harrison, and representatives of the Local Aboriginal Land Council signing a Statement of Commitment, a written agreement between Council and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community of Lake Macquarie. Activities continued throughout the week at libraries around Newcastle, the Newcastle Art Gallery, the Newcastle Museum and the Loft. Events included interactive workshops where children could hear stories of the Dreaming, view indigenous tools and weapons and make their own Aboriginal art. @amelia_parrott

Now, Mr Westbury is claiming records online with his recently launched campaign on crowd-funding website, Pozible.

Within a day, the campaign had claimed the Australian record for most amount of individual contributors within the first 24 hours of a Pozible campaign and surpassed the original target. At the time of publication, contributors had pledged more than $21,500 to the campaign. Mr Westbury said he never anticipated the amount of support. “I set it up as a 60-day campaign and figured it would take that long for me to convince people to give me $10,000. “Seeing how quickly we hit the target was one of the more validating moments we’ve had with Renew for a really long time, just realising our work is

After initially being denied the application because it was for detached housing, the developer resubmitted, which Council said left them with no choice but to approve.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE! Skin cancer is deadly serious business

Plan of action: Anti-social behaviour to be targeted

GET YOUR SKIN CHECKED NOW!

The most important thing you may do for your health this winter is get your skin checked The sun-smart message is often neglected during the winter. Winter may prove to be the best time for a full skin check. As most people are covered up during the winter months, this minimises sun exposure to skin lesions and moles. This can allow for better dermoscopy viewing (a distinct magnifying light, which allows a doctor to closely examine spots on the skin). Remember to protect your skin this winter by applying 50+ sunscreen to exposed areas of skin. If you notice a spot on the skin that looks different from the others or is changing, bleeding or itchy, it should be examined by a doctor.

Maitland Councillor Ben Whiting hopes the new plan will contribute to the Mall’s revitalisation

aitland City Council has unveiled its new Community Safety Plan, which aims to reduce antisocial behavior throughout the region. The plan, to be rolled out over the next three years, will involve collaborating with law enforcement and youth engagement to control the management and removal of graffiti, the prevalence of underage drinking and alcohol-induced violence. Councillor Ben Whiting said that graffiti is a blight on the area. “Graffiti really damages the reputation of an area as a good place,” he said. “The

Community Safety Plan will draw on different initiatives to stamp it out.” Council is also seeking funding to install CCTV in the Maitland Heritage Mall and in the Rutherford Commercial Precinct. Cr Whiting believes that the plan will work with the new Heritage Mall development to encourage retailers to invest in the CBD. “It will bring in a night life economy,” he said. “The Levee development will also see an improvement in lighting, and these elements of design really impact on social behaviour there.” The plan will also focus on malicious damage that occurs as a result of both intoxication and poorly lit pedestrian routes. @melcomber

‘Classy corridor’: Developer (MFOEBMF talks up new precinct

Practice Hours: Hunter Land Chairman Hilton Grugeon and Land Use Director Brad Everett at the site

T

Melissah Comber

hornton will soon be home to a new business and industrial precinct, in what developer Hilton Grugeon is calling the ‘jewel in the crown’ for the Hunter economy. The Glenwood Business Park will be developed on approximately eight hectares of land at the Thornton interchange, and is set to include professional offices, business premises and a potential high quality hotel. The site, originally identified as RU2 Rural Landscape, was recently rezoned to B5 Business Development, which allows for business and warehouses, and B6 Enterprise Corridor, which promotes business along main roads to encourage a mixture of uses.

Mr Grugeon, the chairman of Hunter Land, said that the rezoning of the site will bring a greater investment and more jobs. “We have a vision for the site and it is pleasing to see that Council could see the direction we wanted to head and have brought the plan to reality,� he said. According to Mr Grugeon, the park will be touted as the premier place to stay for those who visit the region on business, and will cement Maitland’s importance as an access point for the ports of Newcastle and the agricultural, wine and mining industries in the Upper Hunter. “It’s going to be the new gateway to Maitland,� he said. “You’ll know you’ve arrived when come across this classy corridor.� @melcomber

Isuzu range hits 154 models, offering your business real choice

T

he release of three new model variants as part of the 2013 model year N and F Series upgrades has seen the Isuzu truck range hit 154 models, the most comprehensive range ever offered and the broadest truck model choice in the Australian market, says the team at Gilbert and Roach, Hexham. In the light duty segment, Isuzu has 58 N Series on offer; the selection is even greater for medium duty applications with 64 F Series available. The FX Series, which covers 10 model variants, was recently joined by nine Isuzu twin steer FY Series trucks; bridging the gap between the standard F Series and the heavy duty Giga C and E Series trucks of which 13 variants are available. All up, the product range sees Isuzu without peer in the breadth of models it offers Australian truck buyers, whether they require a car-licence ready-to-work vehicle, a B-double capable prime mover, or just about anything in between. According to Isuzu Australia Director, Phil Taylor, the new models are essential to keeping existing customers happy while also attracting new ones. “Isuzu has been particularly successful

New model Isuzu trucks are available from Gilbert and Roach, Hexham

over many years at identifying niches in the market and introducing models with specifications that go hand-in-hand with customer requirements,” Mr Taylor said. “Having a broad product range allows our customers to grow their businesses while maintaining their relationship

with our brand. Those who have had a good experience with Isuzu will be more likely to choose Isuzu in another weight category if circumstances in their business change, while for prospective customers, the chances are high that Isuzu will have a model to suit their

application.” A number of additional Isuzu models have been slated for release later this year. For more information, talk to the team at Gilbert and Roach Hexham on 4964 8641 or drop in and see them at 320 Pacific Highway, Hexham.

Food is more than energy

T

here’s a new rating system that’s supposed to help us make better food choices. But, it seems that the new star rating food labels are based on outdated research and won’t tackle Australia’s expanding waistline, according to nutrition experts. The new labelling system is aimed at helping us to choose healthier meals by rating foods on their fat, sugar and salt content. But a leading nutritionist says the five-star ratings are based on outmoded research that ignores current science’s more holistic understanding of nutrition and places too much emphasis on energy content. “The rating stars ignore the two new components of food – protein and low GI content,” said Professor Jennie BrandMiller of the University of Sydney’s School of Molecular Bioscience. “For example, breast milk would have two red marks, one for saturated fat and one for sugar.” Speaking at a food labelling conference in Sydney, BrandMiller said she was “very, very uncomfortable” with a star system which was underpinned by outdated research. “The energy content of the food is not the best way to judge; lentils and liquorice have the same energy density,” she said. However, the star rating system has received support from the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA). PHAA CEO Michael Moore says while the information was built from the best information available at the time, it still would be open to regular updates as new scientific findings come out. It seems like we have once again forgotten that there is a lot more to food than total energy. What about the actual quality? Any rating system that has breast milk below some manufactured cereal product has got to be a joke.

Pick your best knits

othing says warm like snuggly knitwear. But with so many styles out there, which do you choose? Scarves, jumpers, cardigans, gloves, beanies; you name it and your closest store will have it. I am a huge fan of knitwear because it is an easy way to keep warm. My favourite knitted item is a big, chunky grandma-style cardigan. It looks warm and comfortable, but with big metal buttons (and some clever accessorising) it can make for a really nice goout-for-dinner kind of cardigan. I always try to wear fitted pants and a fitted top with it. When the weather is not so chilly, I like to wear one of my thinner cardigans. These are great for layering clothes and it is for this reason that I recommend neutral colours like black, white or cream. These smaller cardies can also look really nice over a dress if you get a particularly warm winters day. Nothing beats a knitted scarf for those times when the wind picks up and there is a chill in the air. A chunky knit always looks the best in scarves, but make sure you choose one of this season’s most popular colours like berry or dark blue. The same applies for other knitted accessories like gloves and beanies – choose something to complement your outfit. There is no harm in mixing different knitted items together in one outfit, in fact, it makes for a great look. Layer a thin cardigan with a thick one over the top and add a scarf for that extra touch. When layering an outfit, remember to stick to the same colour scheme so that your outfit doesn’t look over-the-top.

Adding salt to wounds

T

he old English proverb would have us believe that “time heals all wounds”. The statement is somewhat true but with physical injuries, the kind of “first aid” we provide, in large part, determines the rate and degree of healing. Lacerations, cuts and grazes are probably the most common wounds we are likely to suffer; and in all these cases the aim is to stop bleeding, prevent infection and restore tissue health. Of course in the first instance we must ensure the wound is clean; and this is where the salt comes in – or, more correctly, some normal saline. A minor cut or graze can be washed clean with saline solution or otherwise you can clean the wound with warm running water. And saline-soaked gauze can be used to remove superficial dirt. A surfactant antiseptic (such as Betadine Scrub or Savlon liquid) can be used to remove stubborn foreign material; and then a topical antiseptic product can be applied. Suitable products are those containing iodine, peroxide, chlorhexidine, hypochlorites or alcohol; but remember, antiseptics are not necessary if the wound is clean – they can actually damage the tissue and delay healing. If you’d like more advice on how best to treat cuts, scratches, grazes and burns, what dressings to use, and how and when, you can get the latest information on wound management from pharmacies providing the Pharmaceutical Society’s Self Care Health Information. For the nearest location phone 1300 369 772 or check out the Pharmaceutical Society website at www.psa.org.au .

You are likely to be feeling vulnerable and confused so don’t make too many far flung decisions. A connection with doctors is likely for yourself or loved ones. A lot of your energy is going to be put into your home and family life. Be careful of becoming involved with intense power struggles with your partner or loved ones. If you try to chastise them or try to force them around to your way of thinking, they will only become rebellious.

TAURUS

april 21 to may 21

You need to be careful of being too outspoken as it will lead to hot-headed disputes. Also be careful whilst driving, as the planets are making you rather stressed out and impatient. In your friendships and relationships, any emotional blocks can be relieved through proper communication and a willingness to be tolerant and understanding. This will set the trend for more meaningful connections in the future.

GEMINI

may 22 to june 21

A big focus is going to be on your financial affairs and the red planet is going to increase your funds in order to help you pay off your debts. Be careful of your spending habits as you will be inclined to buy things impulsively. Conflicts are likely over money, so think before you act. In your place of employment, don’t let conflicting perceptions bog you down and obstruct you from finishing your work. Keep your eyes on the prize.

CANCER

june 22 to july 22

Mars is directly in your sign, so be prepared to guard yourself against impatience and be careful of getting angry at the thoughtless behaviour of others. Also be extra careful of accidents happening either on the road or in the home and be extra cautious when handling anything hot or sharp. This is an ideal time to increase your knowledge of computers and other technology. You will have loads of fun when you realise how easy it all is.

LEO

july 23 to august 23

There is likely to be a connection with surgeons and medical professionals either for yourself or a loved one in the coming weeks. It’s time to look after your health, so work out a good strategy for improving your diet and lifestyle. You are going to be stirred up psychologically and will need to do your best not to let your anxieties control you. It’s an ideal time for taping into talents you may not have realised that you possessed.

VIRGO

august 24 to september 23

You will need to be careful when dealing with any issues involving your place of employment, clubs or groups of people as underhanded politics is likely to be coming from certain people. Friends also could make you feel weighed down, therefore you will need to give anyone who has a negative energy a very wide berth! Spending time with those who have been a solid anchor in your life will help to ground you.

Your horoscope

by FRANCIS A BEVAN www.francisbevan.com

libra

September 24 to OctOBER 23

A high pressure time is ahead of you career-wise and you will need to watch your diet and get plenty of rest if you are to stay on top form. Differences between you and others at your workplace is obvious and when dealing with certain clients, colleagues or bosses, remember that not everyone sees things the way you do! At home, teamwork and pulling together as a family will bring an uplifting energy to the household and benefit everyone.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 to NOVEMBER 22

Learn to trust others. Unburden yourself and share some of your stress and secrets! Accept social invitations readily as this will force you to face opinions that differ from your own! Also be tolerant and patient when dealing with foreigners and people from different backgrounds! Parents can expect a shift for the better in their relationship with children in fact they’ll be more accommodating of your needs!

SAGITTARIUS

november 23 to december 21

Avoid getting involved in disputes, either at work or in the family. There is nothing to gain from crossing swords with others and indeed there might be a good deal to lose. Make certain you are not acting out of anger in response to other people’s attitudes! Financially, you need to come to terms with your true situation so face up to the facts and realise that through discipline you can achieve lasting financial security.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 to JANUARY 20

With Mars in your opposite sign, there is a major focus on your relationships. On the one hand, you are going to enjoy spending a lot of time with your loved ones but on the other, you will find yourself getting frustrated and irritated by the behaviour of certain people. Studies and all educational pursuits will go well, in fact, you may be doing yourself a disservice by not actively seeking out some new form of wisdom!

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO february 19

This is not the ideal time to make serious commitments to anything, or anyone, until you have given yourself the chance to think things through. Your workload will be increasing and you will need to be careful not to provoke arguments or to take your irritability out on colleagues. You need to find ways to better handle stressful conditions in your life and a new health regime would be an ideal way to start. Get into it!

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

A lot of your energy is going to be invested into either romance, social activities or children. Your offspring will be extra demanding, they also may suffer sprains or strains if playing active sports such as soccer. Look at life realistically and resist the temptation to act upon every whim and fantasy. Entertainment is the perfect way to relieve the burden you’re under so surround yourself with upbeat people and keep smiling.

Recipe for success

’m no Masterchef, and the Michelin judges won’t be knocking at my door any time soon, but I can make a pretty good pasta and a halfdecent stir fry. There was a time when being a young guy living out of home for the first time would mean subsiding on a diet of two minute noodles and 2am kebabs. These days when young guys move out of home, they are far more likely to have a few good recipes up their un-ironed sleeves. Perhaps it is the multitude of cooking shows on TV or peer pressure driven from yet another Instagram food snap that has led to guys taking a more leading role in the kitchen. It seems us young guys have finally wised up to the fact that we are far more likely to impress a date with a home-cooked meal than with a take away. It’s even more impressive if you wash up afterwards. Gone are the days when the kitchen was solely a woman’s domain, with men granted access only to cook the BBQ. When both members of a couple are working long hours, blokes are expected to pick up their fair share of the cooking. As we continue to break down the gender stereotypes that have defined past generations, the men of Gen Y will need to abandon any attachment they have to the paternalistic view of housework. It’s time to put down the beer and pick up a fry pan.

EDUCATION MATTERS by David Roy

Different strokes

ore and more you will start to hear the term, ‘differentiation in learning’. What do we mean by the term differentiation and differentiated learning? In the past this might have meant a ‘simpler’ worksheet for learners who found the level of work too hard. In today’s schools this is no longer the case. Every child has specific learning needs. They might need to be extended or they might find certain skills or knowledge a challenge. Each child therefore now needs an Individual Learning Plan. Research shows that rather than streaming students, having mixed ability classes benefits all. This means a lot more work for our already overworked teachers, but this extra effort does lead to all children improving in achievement. Differentiated work can mean that there are different opportunities and methods used to approach a task. Some students learn better through group work, some through talking, some through writing. This is the heart of differentiation. At times a different worksheet will be offered, but this will usually be of equivalent difficulty rather than ‘easier’ work. Often students are differentiated by their response. A good example is in Drama. A Year 2 child could be given the same task as a Year 11 (make a performance about escaping from prison). You would expect the Year 11 students to have a wellstructured narrative, variety of characters and dialogue with a strong message; and using a variety of techniques. Year 2 students may also have these things, but you wouldn’t expect it to be as nuanced or developed.

Lessons in sharing

take my children to swimming lessons every week and at the end of the class, the children jump into the wading pool and play with each other. The only problem is, some children bring toys to play with and inevitably this causes issues as they don’t want to share them. On one particular day I had taken a few toys for my own children. I always encourage and sometimes even force them to share, even if this means playtime ends up with my son or daughter getting a time out as they won’t do it. In my view this is an important life skill and something they need to learn in order to make friends and play co-operatively. Am I being harsh timing them out because they won’t share? No, I don’t think so. If the situation warrants it I will point out how their friends were sharing their toys and how nice it was of them to do that. I think it is important that they learn to take turns and I praise them when they do this. What really irritates me is when other parents don’t share the same values. While playing in the pool, my daughter willingly shared her toy with another little girl. When the girl then wouldn’t give it back to my daughter, her mother turned to me and said, “Well, I can’t make her share”. I appreciate most children find it difficult to share. Mine are still practicing and are certainly not perfect, but it is up to the parents to teach them this important life skill. If your child completely refuses to share, perhaps you can have some consequences ready. There are many ways you can encourage your children to share and ultimately teach them this all-important skill. Please, never use the excuse, “I can’t make them share”. This might work on a 20-year-old but toddlers? Come on. If you have any tips for encouraging children to share, please share them at www.reneewelsh.com.au.

When was your last eye examination? At least once every 2 years is recommended.

The Newcastle Post Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Steven Brown has been practicing Optometry for 29 years and has a wealth of industry experience to draw from. Steven has developed a clear focus on the individual patient’s needs as a priority. With all the possible eye conditions to watch for, Steven takes the vision and visual health of all his patients very seriously, from the most junior patients to the seniors in our community. He has children of his own and places great importance on the development of our children’s sight. Steven says “it’s recommended that every child be routinely checked by an eye care professional between 2-3 years of age” and then ongoing from there. Full development of a child’s visual system occurs by the age of nine, so the success of treatment may be affected after this time. Steven is excited to be in Speers Point on Tuesdays and Fridays at AIE Optical and invites you to call in and say hi, ask any questions you may have and make an appointment.

The family business

O

ver 70 percent of all Australian businesses are family-owned and run. To survive, strong business principles and practices must come first and family interests second. A family business has family members involved in the ownership, management and employment, often covering 2 or 3 generations. It is critical to have a strong structure and a solid agreement about the framework of the business and a clear understanding of where the responsibilities and authorities lie. A ‘Family Council’ involving all the family members can focus on the family’s expectations of the business. Establishing a ‘family charter’ which outlines the code of conduct for family members can go a long way to clarifying how family members should behave whilst working for the business as well as specifying the practices which are expected. The business should have a separate Board consisting of family members and one or two independent (non-family) members who bring outside experiences and perspectives to the Board and

who can fill skill gaps at a corporate governance level. Position descriptions and key performance indicators should be in place for all positions irrespective of who holds them (family or non-family members). Setting clear roles, responsibilities and performance measures for each position will help avoid disputes about performance and remuneration. Having a succession plan is very important, even if handing the business to the next generation isn’t on the cards. Ensure whoever owns the business has a current estate plan (or will). To avoid some pitfalls of a family business, develop a clear entry plan. Hiring a family member for a role they’re not qualified for is never a good idea. Create criteria a family member must fulfill before taking a role in the business. If these can’t be met, provide the necessary training. Establish a proactive structure for resolving disputes, and don’t hesitate to establish a process or engage outside help should relationships start to sour. If you wait too long, relationships will suffer.

A

few weeks ago I talked about leasing and commercial hire purchase as two business finance options to consider. This week I thought I’d give you a quick run-down on the other options available to you. Creditors are people or businesses your business owes money for goods or services supplied. By getting access to their goods or services before paying for them, you can generate income. You want to try and reduce the time between when you pay and when you get paid. It is effectively interest-free finance but is short-term only. An overdraft allows the balance in your account to go below zero to an agreed limit. It is flexible but can be relatively expensive, depending upon the interest rate and other fees. A business loan usually has a lower cost than an overdraft and is suitable for long-term core debt needs. Those backed by real estate are cheaper than unsecured loans or loans backed by other assets. Residential real estate backed

loans are the cheapest of all. Look for loans that offer redraw or offset facilities. A credit card is expensive if you don’t pay it off at the end of the month but it can give you up to 55 days interest free money. It can be useful if your suppliers will give you a discount for immediate payment or if they require immediate payment. There are some low rate cards around. When you rent equipment or premises the asset is off the balance sheet and payments and stamp duty are usually tax deductible. Commercial bill lines can be secured or unsecured. They generally have relatively low interest rates but usually have significant minimum repayment sizes and fees. Rollover periods are inflexible. You should be looking at these options to see which one or combinations work best for your business needs at this point in time. The right option changes as your business changes. Get some help from your accountant, business advisor or business banker.

hen director John McTiernan (‘Predator’, ‘The Hunt For Red October’) teamed up with Bruce Willis for the first ‘Die Hard’ outing, not only did they create a credible action hero in Willis, but also the yardstick by which all modern-day action blockbusters would be judged. Willis’ has since reprised his role as the wise-cracking New York Cop out of water, John McLane in three subsequent sequels with varying degrees of success. The latest, ‘Die Hard With A Vengeance’, however is the weakest of the bunch. This time around, McLane, fearing for the safety of his seemingly criminal son who finds himself in hot water after an assassination, travels to Russia to talk some sense into him and help him out. Myriad car chases and explosions ensue but much of the original tension is sorely missing.

f your musical proclivities extend to the swampier, blusier side of the spectrum, then you’d do well to pick up a copy of Newcastle outfit Catfish Soup’s latest long player, ‘We Got What You Need’. Right from the album’s opener, ‘Back To The Blues’, these gyes grab you and refuse to let go with a tubthumping rhythm section and some truly slinky guitar lines thanks to axeman Paul Longworth, while frontman Kevin Mills brings a fair amount of bar-room gravel to proceedings. While these guys have definitely got the blues – think more Stevie Ray Vaughn rather than Robert Johnson – they are not afraid to rock out when the situation calls for it. Also, given that Catfish Soup have built up quite a reputation as formidable group, the latest record serves to impress. Standouts here include the rocking blues of ‘Pass That Bottle’ and the barrelling rumble of ‘Boogie Man’. This latest offering from Catfish Soup is a heady gumbo indeed.

his hilarious road-flick from director John Hughes (‘The Breakfast Club’) is, in this humble wag’s opinion, the best thing that both John Candy and

Steve Martin have ever done. The story centers around travelling salesman Neal Page (Steve Martin) who is trying to get home to his family in time for Thanksgiving. His flight has been cancelled due to bad weather, so he must seek out alternate travel modes. Page is also blessed with the presence of Del Griffith (John Candy) a travelling shower curtain ring salesman who is never short of a quip, advice or some bad jokes. When Del decides that the pair should team up in order to get home, that’s when the fun really starts. This film flaunts Candy’s talents to full effect and Martin also shines.

here’s no denying that there is an awful lot of love in Newcastle for Lee Kernaghan but, as the country music superstar told TE, the feeling is definitely mutual. “I’ve got a lot of love for you Newcastle folks – Newcastle is a very sentimental place for me,” Kernaghan explained. “I was actually playing a show at the Civic Theatre a few years back and next thing I know, Mike Munroe is walking across the stage saying, ‘Lee Kernaghan, this is your life’ – it surprised the living daylights out of me, I can tell you. My wife, Robby, was in on the whole thing leading up to it and I actually thought she might be having an affair. But, yeah, Newcastle always holds a special place in my heart.” It’s no surprise, then, that Kernaghan would include a Newcastle show on his seemingly endless national tour (kicking off in March and wrapping up in November) to support his eleventh studio album, ‘Beautiful Noise’. Kernaghan will be bringing Tasmania’s Wolfe Brothers (who first came to national attention on ‘Australia’s Got Talent’) to town as both the support act and his backing band. “The Wolfe Brothers are just fantastic and the show really is going to be a double banger with more hits than you can poke a stick at,” he said. “I like to think of it as the annual

Ph: 4960 1397 284 Maitland Rd

general meeting of the Outback Club.” Kernaghan’s latest album, ‘Beautiful Noise’ is awash with the same downhome and honest approach that has

made the singer one of the most bankable stars on the Aussie country scene and a sense of wanderlust that reflects the artist’s own journey.

One of the album’s standouts, the poignant ‘Flying With The King’, tells the story of the time Kernaghan shared a plane ride from Sydney to Perth with country music demi-God Slim Dusty. Kernaghan said ten years after Dusty’s passing, the effect he had on his career was immeasurable. “That was just one of those memories that become even more precious as the years go by,” he said. “Slim was just such a massive influence, not just on me but Australian country, and that memory is something that I will always carry in my heart.” Dusty gets another look-in on the deluxe tour edition of the album, with his classic ‘Lights on the Hill’ getting the Kernaghan and Wolfe Brothers treatment. “I’m really excited about the deluxe edition – there’s the duet with the Wolfe Brothers, which just pumps, another one with Colt Ford, one with V8 Supercar legend Craig Lowndes and another one with my wife Robby, which is just great.” When it comes to the rigours of the road, Kernaghan is definitely no stranger, with untold kilometres clocked up since the days he packed his wares into an old horse float and set off in search of fame, acting as his own sound guy and lighting man along the way. However, Kernaghan wouldn’t have it any other way. “When you’re playing in front of a country crowd it’s just like lighting a stick of dynamite. I just bloody love it!” Catch Lee Kernaghan when he takes the stage at Wests Lambton on Saturday, August 10.

the hugely popular show. Oswald and Hardingham have a working relationship and friendship spanning the last decade and Oswald said she was thrilled to be collaborating with Tantrum. “I’ve wanted the fabulous Amy Hardingham to direct my work ever since we met on ‘Skate’ in 2003 and now my dream has come true,” she said. Great entertainment for everyone aged 10 and up, ‘House on Fire’ is a witty, contemporary play that provides a refreshing insight into teenage life and features some of the Hunter region’s most talented young actors. As the play opens, child prodigy India introduces the audience to her neighbours – the Conway sisters. Evie’s suffering from peer pressure from the cool girls at her new school, Michaela’s freaking out about the HSC and Bec’s dropped out of uni and is on the verge of dropping out of life. Over the course of one crazy day, the sisters’ challenges simmer and come to a head, forcing them to take a hard look at what really matters in life. ‘House on Fire’ will be on at the Civic Playhouse from Wednesday, July 24 to Saturday, August 3. TE is giving you the chance to win a family pass to see ‘House on Fire’ at the Civic Playhouse on Wednesday, July 24. To enter, email your name and contact details to editorial@ newcastlepost.com.au with ‘Tantrum’ in the subject line, by no later than 5pm on Monday, July 22. Winners will be notified by phone.

A

fter making some pretty decent headway with their last single ‘Black and Blue’, Newcastlebased The Havelocks have called it a day (well, for the foreseeable future at least), but fans of the power-pop quartet need not be too despondent as frontman Lennie Tranter is spreading his wings in solo mode with a new single and video about to drop in the next couple of weeks. While The Havelocks bread and butter was jangly guitar hooks and full-bodied harmonies, Tranter told TE that the new project would veer more into strippedback territory. “I’d say the new stuff has more of a country-folk vibe, which is pretty different to what I was doing with the Havelocks,” he said. “With the band, it was more about trying to write the same stuff but, now that I’m only writing for me, I feel a little bit more

free to take things to different places. “I’ve got a new song that I’m planning on putting out as a free single in the next couple of weeks to launch the whole thing - it’s pretty exciting.” A refreshingly honest Tranter said the main reason for the Havelocks’ demise was a lack of communication. “It wasn’t a decision I came to easily,” he said. “I broke my arm in Melbourne earlier this year and after that we did a few shows and there seemed to be quite a lack of communication. I wouldn’t say that I’m a hard guy to play with, but I may, at times, be a little hard to deal with when I’ve been drinking, so I decided that it was best to try the solo thing.” Tranter said that he had enlisted a backing band that also includes Havelocks guitarist Craig Whibley and Damien Cullen from Sydney outfit Bayonettes For Legs. “At this stage, I’m looking at booking a few shows around mid to late August in Newcastle and then maybe a bit further around September,” he said.

F

lying Mare is a four-piece band who love to entertain. All members have vast experience in live music in Newcastle and overseas. The repertoire runs the gamut of 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and now. Their live performances incorporate and draw upon the musicianship and experience of seasoned performers. Crowd interaction, musical humour and a dedication to the pursuit of musical enjoyment sets these guys apart from the rest. Dave, Ron and Luke won their stripes in Newcastle bands like Appaloosa, the Longknives, Men Without Shame, Magic Carpet, Melting Pot, and Big Ask. Gav’s powerhouse drumming and vocal prowess offers the scope of three-part harmonies and he always gives 100 per cent to the integral nature of the song. People say there is no substitute for experience – you be the judge. Flying Mare play music the way it should be played...with passion and joy.

The departure lounge TE caught up with former Powderfinger frontman Bernard Fanning ahead of his turn at the Civic Theatre next week and at A Day on The Green later in the year. Congratulations on the number one debut for ‘Departures’. You’ve now had six albums debut at number one, an amazing achievement. Were you just as excited about this one? “If you mean as equally unexcited as always then yes, certainly. To be honest, I find most of the stuff where musicians and artists are ranked against each other to be a bit irrelevant. “Don’t get me wrong, I am happy that people buy my records, but I honestly don’t mind if more of them buy a Pseudo Echo record in any given week. “I think it is all of the label people and managers and anyone that puts an effort into the promotion and marketing and sale of the album that are most interested in where it ends up on the charts. And fans too. After all, they are the ones who have actually invested money in it.”

You’ve said that you had no interest in making ‘Tea & Sympathy 2’. Given that, you must be pleased with how it has been received? “Yeah, I am pleased with how it has been received. I think overall there has been pretty constructive criticism and in most cases a pretty positive response. “I realize that for some fans that mentality of wanting to change things and broaden my musical ideas, is not really what they are after. “But I wouldn’t be able to sleep straight if I ended up making records based on anything other than what I wanted to hear. “The way I look at it now is that there are things that I could have done better, but I suppose that is always going to be the case. “When Jeffrey Smart died recently, I was reading that a famous quote of his,

RIP IT UP

The songs for the album were written in Madrid. What’s the music scene like over there and has living and writing there influenced your music? “I didn’t really see many bands, except for flamenco stuff, which was great. Actually, I did see Wilco which was incredible. They are a revelation, that band. I don’t know if where you are has much influence on what you are writing, unless you are consciously trying to make it so. “I certainly wasn’t trying to shoe horn any Spanish influence into my songs. I just went about my business how I usually do, which is to sit down and apply myself and chip away at songs until I think they are ready.”

it within five minutes of meeting all of the guys. They were all very casual and cool and keen to improve the songs any way they could.” You’ve said that these were the hardest vocal sessions you’ve ever done. Can you elaborate? “Mainly it was that there were tonnes of banks of vocals that had to be pieced together. When I made the demos, the songs were coming together over a matter of weeks at a time so it was a more gradual process, but when I was doing it with Joe [Chiccarelli – US producer] it was pretty much a song altogether in one block. “One song, ‘Call You Home’, had about 25 vocal tracks on it so it kind of adds up when you are doing it again and again.” How are rehearsals going for the tour and what can fans expect at the live shows? “Rehearsals have been great. I have a newish band with a couple of guys from the Tea and Sympathy stuff and a couple of new guys. Most of the newer stuff is pretty rhythm heavy, so I was looking for a band that was a little bit more groovedriven than last time, where it was all about melody and lots of ‘down home’ kind of sounds with fiddle and mandolin. “I am actually surprised at how well the two albums have blended side by side despite the fact that they sound very different. I think that the nature of both albums is that there are lots of light and shade moments, so that is definitely something that we work towards live as well – having pretty dramatic dynamics of both power and beauty.” Bernard Fanning will be performing at the Civic Theatre on Tuesday, July 30 and at A Day on The Green at Bimbadgen Winery on Saturday, November 2.

Has it been liberating to work as a solo artist? “Yeah in some ways I suppose it has. There is no-one else to please or consider in terms of what sort of sounds you are going for. I think it is, more than anything, on an organisational level, as it is a lot easier than trying to massage the Powderfinger machine into something manageable. “For me, that was the main reason I wanted out of the band, because I wanted to be able to make decisions for myself and my family, without having to put them to a committee.”

The musicians on the record are some of LA’s top session guys who you’d never worked with before. What was it like handing over your songs to them? “Well, that was my intention, to play with people I didn’t know, to see how that would influence it. I had no problem with

fter carving out a niche for himself as one of the most adventurous musicians on the Australian scene with the criminally underrated 80s and 90s outfits, Not Drowning Waving, and My Friend the Chocolate Cake, as well as a formidable soundtrack resume and solo canon, singer-songwriter David Bridie is showing no signs of slowing down with his brilliantly evocative fourth solo effort, ‘Wake’. The album traverses considerable musical and lyrical territory ranging from tales of love lost (‘You’re No Flower’), to the plight of asylum seekers (‘Delegate’) to Seussian whimsy (‘Dr Seuss is Painting the Sky’). Bridie will be hitting the road in support of the album, but while he said he was looking forward to giving punters a better taste of the new tracks, there was some trepidation involved. “There is always trepidation when starting a new tour, there’s trepidation when you’re recording and trepidation when you release a new album,” he explained. “But I really think that you do need to have that fear of failure, not just in terms of music but with most things in life. We are informed as much by how we don’t want things to go, I think. “Also, I care about the idea of live performance greatly, so a lot of work goes into the set-lists, the set design and even the placement of the mics.” That’s not to say that Bridie will be going it

completely alone as he will be bringing a band with him that will include New Zealand-based singersongwriter Eden Mulholland (who will also be supporting) and fellow Not Drowning Waving alum, John Phillips. “It really is a different discipline playing live and it really gives you the chance to take the songs in different directions,” he said. “This time around, I’ll have Eden Mullholland playing with me and John, who was in Not Drowning Waving and who I’ve been playing with since I was 19. So, there’s also every chance that we might whip out a few old tracks like ‘Willow Tree’ or ‘Walk Me Home’. While Bridie said he still had a great deal of affection for his band days, he said going solo has helped him to solidify his musical vision, which has manifested itself on such soundtracks as ‘The Man Who Sued God’, ‘Remote Area Nurse’ and ‘The Circuit’. “I really loved the communal aspect of the band dynamic, but as much as I liked the camaraderie of being in a band and the collaborative aspect, going out on my own, I have been able to follow through on my musical vision, which I hope comes through on the new record. “It’s also interesting because this is really the first album since the early Not Drowning Waving stuff that I’ve recorded away from record company intervention, so there were no A & R people involved either. In fact, the musicians I worked with on the album kind of took on the role of A & R, which was a very interesting process for me.” Catch David Bridie when he plays at Lizotte’s Lambton on Sunday, July 28.

mall but mighty is a phrase that comes to mind when dining at Deck 56. This cosy cafe-restaurant, perched by the lake in Brooks Parade, Belmont, offers a simple dinner menu that delivers a massive punch of flavour. Unlike some restaurants that offer up a menu so crammed-full with options you run the risk of coming down with a serious case of dining-induced stress before you’ve seen the first course, at Deck 56, the choice is much more straightforward.

Despite the menu’s compact size, you certainly don’t feel like you’re missing out. Everything a hungry diner could want for is there. Entree options include soup of the day, perfect for these chilly Winter nights, tomato and capsicum tarte tartin and Asian prawn laksa, while mains include staples like lamb shanks, scotch fillet, chicken supreme, fish, pork and pasta, all served with their own flavoursome twists. For entree, both my dining partner and I opted for the squid – dusted with salt and pepper and served with zesty caramelized chorizo, green herb paste, fresh roquette and a sweet and sticky strawberry reduction – perfectly

Deck 56

56 Brooks Parade, Belmont Phone: 4945 5777 deck56.com.au balanced and simply divine! I followed this up with house-made ricotta and spinach gnocchi, served with sweet roast pumpkin and asparagus in a creamy white wine sauce topped with a crunchy pistachio gremolata, while my dining partner devoured his hefty portion of scotch fillet, triple-cooked kipfler potato wedges and sweet corn in a flash. If you are someone who fancies a drop with their dinner, the wine list at Deck 56 is surprisingly vast. It features a selection of reds, whites, dessert wines and bubbly from top Australian growing regions like Margaret River, the Murray Darling, the Riverina

and, of course, the Hunter Valley. They’ve even got a bottle of genuine French champagne on hand, perfect for any celebratory meal. We chose a glass of the local Ironbark Hill verdelho to accompany our meal. Impressively, Deck 56 also make their own desserts. As well as the items on the menu, there is an ever-changing array of cakes and pastries on display in the fridge to choose from. We capped off the evening with a latte crème brulee and sticky date pudding – delish. You can find Deck 56 open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day at 56 Brooks Parade, Belmont.

ewcastle’s Benjalu are back with a new EP, The Battle, and they’ll also be back in their old stomping ground this weekend to give Newcastle punters a taste of their effortlessly cruisy six-track release. Benjalu have always taken the ‘old school’ approach to promoting their music. They have toured all around Australia the past 3 years, clocking up well over 600 shows including nearly 20 festival appearances. With more than three years of almost non-stop touring

No grief with this duo

G

ood Grief are the latest duo to hit the Newcastle scene and, if their press is to be believed, these guys guarantee to set dance floors alight (well, not literally). Combining the formidable talents of vocalist Shelley McInally and guitarist Mark Webster, Good Grief offer up a great night’s entertainment. McInally has a very diverse history in the music industry. She has gone from being a classically-trained vocalist at the Conservatorium to perfoming in many

musical theatre productions with the Newcastle Light Opera Company and the Metropolitan Players, through to wedding vocalist, singing teacher and even a magician’s assistant. Sometimes referred to as a bit of a clown prince of the music biz, Webster has poured more than 30 years into the scene in bands such as Small Toys, Fabba, Stark Raving Mad and Incognito. The pair plan to hit the ground running with a special launch show at the Gallipoli Legion Club on Saturday, July 27.

and four EPs under their belt, there’s no denying upon listening to ‘The Battle’ that this is a band that is clearly growing as a formidable songwriting unit. While the same rootsy vibe that was so apparent in previous releases can still be found here, this time around, wings have been spread to include more straight ahead bluesy-rockers like ‘Way To The Coast’ and the stripped back and starkly beautifyl version of the Rodriguez classic, ‘Sugar Man’. Catch Benjalu at The Cambridge Hotel on Saturday, July 20.

hen it comes to longevity in the oft-fickle world of popular music, there are few that can hold a candle to bona fide legends, The Delltones. Since 1958, the light-hearted, doowop influenced group have been singing their way into Australian hearts and are sure to show no signs of slowing down when they hit the Hunter for two special shows next month. The group’s honeyed-tonsiled baritone and original “Delly”, Ian ‘Peewee’ Wilson told TE that the shows would be a reflection on the band’s entire career. “We haven’t been to either Belmont 16s or Hexham for quite a while now, which is a shame, but we’re really looking forward to getting back. It’s always a really good show in the Newcastle area,” he said. “The show will basically be the Delltones performing history. It’s a twohour show that will showcase a lot of our own early pop songs right through to songs from albums in the 80s and 90s – it’s going to be a lot of fun.” After playing their first show in 1958 in a Kings Cross nightclub (for which they were paid spaghetti bolognaise and beer), The Delltones have released an impressive 31 singles (including such iconic tracks as ‘Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands’, ‘Hangin’ Five’ and ‘Get a Job’) and 19 albums and have been performing pretty much non-stop ever since. Wilson said he was constantly surprised by the band’s remarkable

career, especially considering when he and Noel Widerberg – two Bronte Surf Club Lifesavers – formed The Delltones along with Warren Lucas and Brian Perkins, rock and roll was considered a fad that would not last the year. “Back in those days it was a case of don’t give up your day job because a career in the music business was just unheard of,” Wilson said. “We had no plans for the future or any career aspirations because it just wasn’t an option – we just rolled with it and we are extremely humbled and lucky to still be rolling with it today.” While Wilson said it was hard to put a finger on why the band had lasted for so long, he said he suspected it was due partly to the Delltones’ unpretentious and refreshingly upbeat sound. “We’ve amassed such a great pool of wonderful songs over the years which is great because we can mix up our sets, which always keeps us sounding fresh,” he said. “The music we play is aimed directly at the heart and at the feet and there’s still a definite sense of joy and wonder with all of us on stage. There are no old farts in the Dellies – we keep raging to stop the ageing.” Catch The Delltones when they play at Belmont 16s on Friday, August 9 and Hexham Bowling Club on Saturday, August 10. TE is giving you the chance to win a double pass to see The Delltones at Hexham Bowling Club on Saturday, August 10. To enter, email your name and contact details to editorial@ newcastlepost.com.au by no later than 5pm on Tuesday, July 30. Winners will be notified by phone.

Things to consider when choosing a property manager

nvestors are often tempted to manage their own rental properties but they need to assess whether or not the time and hassle involved in taking on the role of a hands-on landlord is worth it. A property manager, such as a Raine & Horne specialist, eases the responsibility of managing an investment property by collecting rent, organising repairs and representing you in all dealings with tenants should issues arise. That said, not all property managers are the same and if you are considering using the services of a property manager, it pays to ask the following questions: 1. How big is your rent roll? If it’s too large, your property may not receive adequate attention. Too small and the manager may be having trouble holding onto clients. 2. How often do you carry out property inspections? This should be every six months. 3. How do you screen potential tenants? A competent property manager will not only request references but will call previous agencies and enquire about the tenant’s prior rental history.

4. Who do you outsource repairs to? A suitable property manager will have a list of licensed tradespeople on hand that they can call immediately should an emergency repair be required. 5. Why do I need landlord insurance? Whether your investment property is self-managed or managed by a property manager, landlord protection insurance is a must. Landlord protection insurance covers particular risks associated with leasing a property that may not be covered by a typical ‘home and contents’ or ‘strata title’ insurance policy. For example, landlord insurance protects you from lost rent if a tenant defaults, and also covers any legal expenses relating to personal injuries to tenants or malicious damage to an investment property. Some policies will even cover contents that could be damaged or stolen – this is particularly important if your investment is partly or fully-furnished. Landlord insurance premiums fluctuate according to the location and type of investment property, so to find out more visit a specialist Landlord Insurer.

Sunday’s games will prove interesting

S

ome interesting results again last weekend in the Tooheys Newcastle Rugby League. On Saturday, Cessnock eventually proved too strong for a determined Maitland outfit in the clash at Cessnock Sports Ground, whilst leaders Macquarie Scorpions had a strong win over Port Stephens. On Sunday, South Newcastle overcame Central Newcastle at Townson Oval, whilst Western Suburbs proved too strong for a luckless Lakes United. This weekend, in the only game on Saturday, there is a critical match up between the Kurri Kurri Bulldogs coming off the bye and South Newcastle at Kurri Sports Ground. Kurri Kurri need to win to stay above Maitland who have the bye, whilst Souths’ need to continue winning to

keep a top 3 finish a possibility. Tune in to Fordo and Butts’ live call of this one on our website. Head to www. newcastlerugbyleague.com.au to catch all the action. There’s three games on Sunday, with the derby between Lakes United and Macquarie Scorpions at Cahill Oval. Central Newcastle will be hoping for further improvement when they host Western Suburbs at St John Oval, whilst Port Stephens Sharks will take on Cessnock up at Tomaree Sports Ground. Should be three interesting clashes. On Tuesday, July 23, South Newcastle will host the Port Stephens Sharks in the deferred game from Round 10 in a critical game for the Lions. First Grade will kick off at 8.30pm, with the three lower grades all being 25 minutes each way from 5.30pm.

Big week of results for Newcastle District

T

he 2012 Newcastle Bowler of the Year, Kevin Robinson (Nelson Bay), qualified for the final of the Blue Ribbon Newcastle District Major Singles Championship with an impressive 31/22 victory over the defending titleholder, Brendon Baker (Valentine). He will meet 2007 champion David Govan (Valentine) in the decider at Kotara commencing at 10am next Sunday. Govan convincingly defeated 2009 titleholder Martin Ball (Alder Park) 31/12 in the second semi-final. Kahibah’s Paul Delforce was an emphatic 31/19 victor over John Murray (Belmont) in the State President’s Singles Championship final played at Redhead. Both players had narrow semifinal wins, with Murray edging out Paul Andreassen (Lambton), 31/30 and Delforce beat Richard Miller (Redhead), 31/27.

Chapman to play for the A-League Allstars against Manchester United

N

ewcastle Jets defender Connor Chapman has been selected as a member of the inaugural Foxtel A-League All Stars squad for their blockbuster clash with Manchester United at ANZ Stadium this Saturday, July 20. Chapman is currently in Sydney, having joined the rest of the Foxtel A-League All Stars, as Ange Postecoglu’s squad commence their preparations for the friendly match against the Red Devils in front of a sell-out crowd at Homebush. Jets CEO Robbie Middleby congratulated Chapman on his selection in the squad and wished him all the best for the game against the reigning English Premier League Champions. “It’s fantastic to have the Jets represented in the Foxtel A-League All Stars and we’re excited to see Connor in action on such a big stage,” Middleby said. “It caps off what has been a very exciting 12 months for Connor. “In a short space of time he has established himself as an A-League player, has represented his country at a FIFA U-20 World Cup and now has the chance to play against arguably the biggest Club in world football, Manchester United. “It is going to be a fantastic experience and one that I’m sure Connor will cherish for years to come.” Chapman and his teammates will come up against football superstars including Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick. The match will be broadcast live on the Seven Network nationally. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
