Scott honoured by NRL for services to the game NATIONAL recognition of the efforts of those involved with the development of rugby league in the district was given to the area on Monday night, when Cook Shire Mayor and President of the Cooktown and District Junior and Senior Rugby League Clubs Peter Scott was presented with the AAMI Service to Community Award. The announcement was made at Rugby League’s 2012 One Community Awards at Sydney’s Town Hall, where Scott shared the spotlight with NRL superstar Johnathan Thurston who was awarded the coveted 2012 Telstra Ken Stephen Medal. Scott’s award, presented to a grass-roots volunteer, administrator, player, Club or organisation for providing an outstanding service to the community through their involvement in Rugby League, was one of nine announced at the function. However, Scott said it was not about him, but all the people from Cooktown, Hope Vale and Wujal Wujal who had in any way been involved with the development of the game since 1994, when he and then local school teacher, Danny Crameri started the juniors in Cooktown. In a speech he delivered to the more than 350 guests at the function, Scott gave a traditional welcome to country from the people of Cooktown and went on to tell them how Saturday night’s grand final was one of the proudest moments of his life. “Half of the boys playing the Three Rivers grand final on Saturday night were boys I have either coached or managed during their junior years,” Scott told the audience. “It was a tough game with not one punch thrown or one sin bin. “It was a game played with

respect and discipline of body and mind, but most importantly it was obvious that all the players were showing how a team mentality is important in sporting, social and working life.” In an interview with the Cooktown Local News, Scott said that the juniors started in 1994, while the Cooktown district representative side started in 2010, with the Three Rivers competition starting last year. “The has been an enormous number of good people, businesses and the respective Councils whose involvement over the years is responsible for this award,” Scott said. He acknowledged the involvement of Des Tayley and Greg McLean, Mayors of the Wujal Wujal and Hope Vale Aboriginal Councils respectively in the commencement of the senior league. “We were approached by the Cairns District Rugby League about entering a team in their competition and that’s something we’re still working towards, but the Three Rivers comp. is the stepping stone for us getting there,” he said. But it was the grass-roots soldiers, giving countless hours of voluntary time he also wanted to acknowledge. “I hope I haven’t missed anyone out here, and if I do, I sincerely apologise, but the names that come readily to mind from out Wujal are Des, Talita, Alister and Robyn and Rob,” he said. “And from Hope Vale, there’s Greg, Teneille, Laurie, Kaylene and Roxanne, while from Cooktown, there’s Nardia, Sylvia, Tex, Scott and Mick.” Sponsors that came readilyto-mind for recognition included, Caltex Cooktown, the Sovereign Hotel, IGA, Gungarde, PCYC, the

Local youth add artistic touch to bins TWO new Cook Shire Council recycling skip bins are getting a makeover this week, by art students from Cooktown State School P-12. Council’s Environment Health Services team had planned to clad the new bins with the same recycled, timber-look material as was used on previous equipment. However, deciding to go for a more “unique” look, Council enlisted the creative assistance of Kane Maneylaws, an aerosol artist from Cairns. Kane is part of a group called “The Next Page”,who is regarded as the pre-eminent street art crew of North Queensland.

The group is involved in teaching and showcasing urban art techniques to all areas of North Queensland. They have a particular interest in delivering community-based, environmentallythemed urban art. Students were chosen to participate in this project through the Youth Support Program at the Cooktown District Community Centre. Six local kids have taken part in the project so far, gaining artistic skills and knowledge through the guidance of Mr Maneylaws. The two new recycling skip bins will join a rotation system.

Skips will be located at a central drop off points and swapped as they are removed for emptying. Locations include: the Cooktown Events Centre; intersection of Racecourse and Endeavour Valley Road; intersection of Poison Creek and Endeavour Valley Road; and Council’s administration building. Look out for these exciting new trailers around town soon, or sneak an early peek at this weekend’s Wallaby Creek Festival, where one of the trailers will feature as part of the Festival’s recycling initiatives.

Local schools to benefit from funding LOCAL schools will receive maintenance funding from the Newman Government’s $200 million school maintenance fund. Indivicual amounts totalling of $262,670 have been allocated to Cooktown, Lakeland, Laura, Rossville and Bloomfield River along with the Hope Vale Campus of CYAA. Member for Cook David Kempton said each school would be allocated funds to fix existing priority maintenance issues under the two-year Advancing Our Schools Maintenance Fund. “The previous Labor Government left our schools with a $292 million maintenance backlog that saw schools in the Cook electorate fall into disrepair,” Mr Kempton said. “Whether it’s peeling paint, uneven footpaths or torn and stained carpet, too many of our state schools have maintenance

It’s about ensuring our children have access to the best school facilities and a safer environment in which to learn.” Monies allocated are as follows: Cooktown ($160,000), Hope Vale Campus of CYAA ($28,470), Rossville ($19,850), Bloomfield River ($29,680), Lakeland ($17,170) and Laura $7500). Minister for Education, Training and Employment John-Paul Langbroek said in addition to the Maintenance Fund schools were now untied from QBuild which meant private providers could carry out maintenance work. “Schools now have the option to choose to continue to use QBuild or to go directly to the

THE number of children and young people with autism accessing state government-funded disability services in Queensland continues to rise, according to a report released recently by the Queensland Commission for Children and Young People and Child Guardian. Commissioner for Children and Young People and Child Guardian Elizabeth Fraser said the Commission’s Snapshot 2012: Children and Young People in Queensland report shows that in the past eight years, the number of children and young people with autism using these services has increased almost four-fold. “In 2002-03, there were 623 children

The Government will also ask P&C organisations and schools to contribute to the maintenance task if they have funds to do so. And in another boost for the Cooktown State School, Mr Kempton announced its students will benefit from the Newman Government’s $1 million boost to the Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Funding Program. Mr Kempton said Cooktown was one of 128 Queensland schools to receive extra funding for its chaplaincy and pastoral care program. “Investing more in school chaplaincy and pastoral care

and young people with autism receiving support through state government funded disability services. The latest data show that this figure has increased to 2432 in 2010-11,” said Ms Fraser. The term Autism Spectrum Disorder is used to describe a set of developmental disabilities that are characterised by difficulties in social communication and language, accompanied by restricted and repetitive behaviours and interests. Other research undertaken by the Commission indicates that Autism Spectrum Disorders are common among children and young people in foster care. The 2011 Views of Children and Young People in Foster Care Survey found that,

programs delivers on a key Newman Government election commitment,” Mr Kempton said. “This additional funding will go a long way towards enhancing existing school-based programs and providing greater support for students.” Mr Kempton said the partnership between schools, chaplains and pastoral care workers and their local communities had long provided a wealth of benefits for students. “School chaplains and pastoral care workers have helped countless students since they started working in Queensland state schools in 1990.” “We know that under challenging circumstances, young people need stability and access to a range of support services to continue to learn and achieve at school,” Mr Kempton said.

behind Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, the 15.5 per cent of children and 16.8 per cent of young people in care who reported having a disability were most likely to report having an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Overall, Autism Spectrum Disorders were the most frequently mentioned disability types. It is not entirely clear what is behind the increase in children and young people with autism accessing disability services. Studies into the causes of autism are not conclusive; although research suggests that changes in brain development can be influenced by a combination of both genetic and environmental factors.

NR L Final

THE 11th annual Wallaby Creek Festival is here! The Festival gates open at midday today, Thursday,so you can head out early to find the perfect camping spot and prepare for three days of non-stop fun starting first thing tomorrow morning. The focus of the Festival is music, with back-toback acts on two stages, as well as more informal jam sessions, poetry and more on the Brackets and Jam Stage from early morning until the wee hours from Friday to Sunday. But music is not all that’s on offer, with a massive range of workshops also happening all day long over the three days. There is sure to be something to tickle your fancy, whether it be gardening with Dr Wendy Seabrook, the spiritual meaning of the solar eclipse with Sjoerd and Clive, flamenco dancing with Furyus Feet, a bush food walk or graffiti with Wally Wallwork. The young ones will also be well-catered to - apart from the natural fun and games on offer with three massive sunny dams, acres of shady grassy play areas, trees galore for climbing or cubbies and the pristine and croc free Wallaby Creek - the Children’s Festival is also pumping every day with creative ways to have fun. There will be adult-supervised costume-making, a children’s parade, circus workshops, poi twirling, stilt walking, recycled art, pinatas, hip hop, drumming and much more on offer from 10am to late in the arvo. Of course there are also other random performances, including the wandering and fascinating Sassy Katz can can dancers, who could pop up in their multi-coloured outfits to flash some stylish leg at any moment, as well as crazy visitors from other planets, and the odd wandering vege - following the festival’s themes of Year of the Farmer, solar eclipse and Year of the Dragon. But if it’s still all about the music for you, make sure you’re there from 7pm on Friday night for the Barefoot Belles grungy rock, Black Image with country, rock and blues, The Jigsaw Collective’s soul, jazz and bluesy sound, The Mouldy Lovers, who are tipped as ‘gypsy junk’ musos, and last but not least, The NEO with their northern soul revolution. Saturday night’s not to miss acts are: Johnos Blues Band (blues), the Montgomery Bros (experimental), The Go Set (folk punk), The Bandawalla Moons (gypsy reggae) and another serving of The Jigsaw Collective and The NEO. And while all this is going on, don’t miss Bill Chambers (yes, you might have heard of his slightly famous daughter Kasey), the Roadtrippers, Hillbilly Goats, TNQ Tafe, Lani Brouwer, Tumbuna, Rough n Ready, Emmaline Anderson and many more on the Brackets and Jam Stage. Head to www.wallabycreekfestival.org.au to check out the complete program, which has every little detail and time so you don’t miss a thing as well as a handy map so you know where you’re headed at our beautiful Festival grounds.

Warra and the circle of life ON our Rainbow Serpent Tour you will see both my family’s Birth Site and a painting of dubal which was used when someone passed away. In traditional Aboriginal society, the Birth Place was a very important site as it marks the beginning of the Circle of Life and gives us our warra or spiritual identity.

In this region, when life ended in the practical sense, the family would first bury the body in the ground so that it could decay and give food to the living plants. After several weeks they would return to collect the bones, washing Birth Site rock art. them carefully, embalming them with ochre, then wrapping them with bark. This wrapping is called dubal and you can see one drawn over

During the time the body was in the ground, close family of the deceased would put white ochre on their bodies to show they were in mourning. People seeing this would avoid mentioning the name of the deceased as a mark of respect, but they could use an alternative name if it was really necessary. The length of mourning depended upon the individual, but would not continue beyond the time the bones were removed from the ground, approximately twelve months later. This also ensured that any disease

associated with the death was not spread to other members of the clan. How it is today Nowadays, despite the Lutheran Church banning these cultural practices, some remain in a different form. Today bodies are buried in the Hope Vale cemetery with a funeral service which marks the start of the body’s return to the earth. We celebrate the passing of the body into its spiritual form a year later with a tombstone unveiling ceremony. In many places it is still considered a lack of respect to mention the name

of the deceased until this ceremony has taken place. For many years it was also the custom to close up the house of the deceased, and the family would move back in only after the tombstone ceremony had taken place and the house had been smoked. This custom had to stop because of the housing shortage, which is a shame as the smoking ceremony was a joyous event, marking the end of the long period of sadness and introducing happiness and joy back into the house again.

Take note of Hog Hunt time changes HOG hunters, take note of changes to the weekend’s advertised procedures for this weekend’s hunt. Registrations will be taken at the Top Pub from 2pm tomorrow, Friday, while the weighing-in will start at 10am on Sunday. Changes to some administrative procedures will not only streamline the weigh-in process of the event, but will also ensure the safety of feral pig hunters who participate in this year’s annual Cooktown Hog Hunt. Hunters will be asked to supply information regarding whom to contact in case of an emergency. “They’ll be asked to sign a waiver before being allowed to participate, but more importantly, we will want to know whom to contact in the event of an emergency or injuries are sustained,” one of the organisers, Kellie Sadleir, said. Ms Sadleir said their policy of face-to-face registrations

will continue so that just who is involved in the event will be known. And to reduce the time involved in the weigh-on at the hunt’s conclusion on the Sunday, hunters will not have to bring in all of the pigs they bagged. This year, hunters will only be required to bring in their 10 whole best pigs for weighing, along with the heads of the others to verify the numbers. Cash and prizes are not only available to competitors, but non-competitors also. On sale now and through the competition at the Top Pub and Wot Eva Go’z Hair Studio are raffle tickets for a first prize of a kid’s quad bike, while an 80L Engel is a lucky nomination prize. Raffles for camping and hunting gear will also be sold during that weekend. Call either 4069 6886 or 0400 042 713 for further information.

Weighing-in for this year’s Cooktown Hog Hunt will start from 10am, this Sunday.

COOKTOWNERS will barely have time to draw breath after this weekend’s round of big events before they saddle up again for the annual Bull Ride and Barrel Race next Saturday, October 6. And with the wide open spaces of its new venue at the Cooktown Race Club, this year’s Bull Ride promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with local band Black Image headlining the live entertainment with sales of their newly-released album, Too Deadly. Gates will open at at 2pm for a 2.30pm start. The program jam-packed with bull riding and horse event action for both the junior and senior adrenalin junkies pitting their skill and courage against bulls, steers, poddy calves and horses alike. And locals might find themselves on TV with a film crew for a well known TV show attending

and filming on site throughout the event. Food, beverages and market stalls will be on site to cater for the hungry, thirsty and the curious shoppers among the patrons, while the children will be well-catered for with lots of entertainment and kids’ activities and events to stop them from becoming bored. “There’ll be plenty of fun for all the family,” declared one of the organisers, Penny Johnson. “We love this event and making it possible for everyone to get together for socialising, sport and fun.” However, while support for the event has been good, more sponsorship and volunteer help is still needed. “We still need a couple more sponsors and volunteers to help with gate, the bar or with admin for event,” Penny said. “They’ll be rewarded with free entry in

exchange for a small commitment of an hour or two helping out. “All the people who work on putting this event on are volunteers.” Anyone interested in volunteering or becoming a sponsor can call either Penny Johnson on 0427 696 229 (leave message) or Dylan Harrigan on 4060 2289.

Watch out for Cardic Challenge cyclists on weekend WITH local roads expected to be choc-full of Wallaby Creek Festival and Cooktown Hog Hunt motorists, organisers of this year’s Cardiac Challenge are asking them to be vigilant for the cyclists taking part in the event. A record number of riders - 333 - will pedal out of the Cazaly’s AFL Club car park on Mulgrave Road, Cairns at 6am this Saturday on the first leg of the taxing 335km, three-day event. The pumped-up cyclists are on a crusade to help the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation raise funds to improve cardiac care services in the region. “Our charity-minded cavalcade shouldn’t be difficult to spot, as it unfurls down the road in a blazing ribbon of colour,” a Challenge spokesman said. “Orange, purple and gold are the predominant colours in the riders’ jerseys this year.” The riders will travel twoabreast along Mulgrave Road and into Sheridan Street, before heading up the Cook Highway to Smithfield. They are expected to reach the base of the Kuranda Range Road

at around 6.30 am and should complete the gruelling climb - in single file - up to Kuranda and on to Speerwah by 8am. In the interests of road safety, Cardiac Challenge organisers are requesting motorists to postpone journeys up the Range Road this Saturday until after 8 am. After they reach Mareeba, the cyclists will form 13 packs of riders, each accompanied by front and rear escort vehicles. They will stop at Mt Molloy for lunch, before continuing along the Mulligan Highway to Mt Carbine, where they will spend the night. On day two, the riders will pedal to the Palmer River, stop for lunch, then ride on to Lakeland, the final destination for the day. Day three, October 1 will see the riders make the final push to Cooktown, where they are expected to gather on the outskirts of the town at around 12.30 pm, before sweeping down Charlotte Street. For further information about the Cardiac Challenge, please visit www.cardiacchallenge.com. au or email Glenys.Duncombe@ Early finishers in last year’s Cardiac Challenge waiting for the pack to catch up before the final leg into Charlotte Street.

Design report for boat ramp is due in ‘next couple of weeks’ COOKTOWN BOAT RAMP: Council has received a revised design for the Cooktown Boat Ramp. The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will issue the detail design report within next couple of weeks and apply for an environmental permit. As requested by TMR, Council has agreed to extend the current asphalt profile of the car park up to the anchor beam of the proposed boat ramp, in lieu of the cast in-situ slab. Once the detail design and permit are received, Council will be engaged for the construction of the upgraded facility. TMR has informed that the floating walkway will be delivered via a separate design and construction contract. TMR will commence this portion of the project following completion of the ramp. PLAQUES, MEMORIALS AND MONUMENTS POLICY: A report to Council indicated that there was no existing policy relating to plaques or memorials placed on public land under control of Council. Up until now, the erection of monuments and memorials has been decided on an ad hoc basis with no real reason other than the personal representation of an individual or club. There have been many occasions over time where an individual or a group has requested Council permit the erection of a plaque or monument to represent the perceived achievements of an individual or group. This type of recognition has been in various forms and could be a simple plaque, a seat, a cairn and most recently a request for a plaque on a water bubbler in the Cooktown Cemetery. To have some control over these memorials especially in high impact areas such as our waterfront area with its now developed Waterfront

Management Plan, a policy was written and sent to this Council meeting for adoption. Council accepted the policy and it will be made available to the public via Council’s website and on request. HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER PLANT: A final design concept of two generators has been received by Council. These turbine generators can be fixed in existing 500mm diameter pipes which pass through the intake tower, housed in a galvanised steel casing and submerged in the water. Maximum power output would be 70kw with approximately 35kw from each machine. The total price is $165,000 for two generators, including delivery to Cooktown and commissioning of the machines. Some additional expenses would be incurred for fixing filter/screens on the pipe mouth and electrical connections; approx. $100,000 - $150,000. This makes the total project cost around $300,000. Unfortunately there is no budget allocation in the recent Council budget for this project. COOKTOWN SKATE PARK: Practical completion was achieved on September 5, 2012 - one week ahead of the original schedule. A “Christening Ceremony” with Design Group kids, Councillors, representatives of local organisations and interested community members took place on Friday, September 21. Landscaping works were brought forward due to public safety concerns of uneven surrounding surfaces. Council’s Parks and Gardens crew laid turf on September 11 with a bin and signage installed by September 14. COOKTOWN COMMUNITY POOL LIGHTING: Installation of the new pool lighting has been completed. The lights have been tested at night with no adjustments

deemed necessary. Night-time activities can now be planned at the pool. LIGHTING AND SPATIAL A N A LY S I S R E V I E W @ NATURES POWERHOUSE: Contractors were appointed to install new light fittings and tracks at Nature’s PowerHouse with the aim of modernising the system to provide an energy efficient and updated system. This is part of the project funded by a Regional Infrastructure Grant from Arts Queensland. A spatial analysis review of Nature’s PowerHouse as part of the recommendations from the Museums and Gallery Services Standards Program, was carried out by Ross Searle from Ross Searle Associates at the end of August. His report is due in September. COOKTOWN BOTANIC GARDENS UPDATE: Tours of the Botanic Gardens are very well attended and great feedback is being received from visitors. Work on the erection of the pig fence has slowed down due to some heavy rocky areas but is still progressing well. Flyers for “What’s Happening in the Gardens” including what plants are in flower, are regularly created to place on tables in the café. Upcoming activities and projects planned include an environmental tour for Cooktown State School students, installation of a pergola for a new Jade Vine at the Powerhouse, development of a new spice garden and repair/replacement of picnic tables in the grounds. ESPLANADE TENURES WITHIN CAPE MELVILLE NATIONAL PARK: Council received a letter dated August 30, 2012 from the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs (DATSIMA) advising that the Department was investigating the

future use and tenure of esplanades within Cape Melville National Park. The esplanades were described as the land between Cape Bowen and Red Point (60m width and area 92.29 ha) and along the south bank of the Jeannie River (20m width and area 15.18 ha). The Department stated the purpose of the investigation and associated consultation was to determine whether the esplanades could be included as part of the process to transfer the proposed

Cape Melville National Park to National Park (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal land), with an underlying tenure of Aboriginal Freehold. A resolution was made, that the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander and Multicultural Affairs be advised that Council, as both the Local Authority and the Road Authority for the area, strenuously objects to the closure of the esplanades as described and depicted on the submitted plans.

15ft 5in croc tagged on Cape GOTCHA: Assisted by the Australia Zoo crocodile capture team,Terri Irwin leads the charge to subdue ‘Juergen’. At 4.69 metres (15ft 5in) ‘Juergen’ is the largest crocodile ever caught by the team on the Wenlock River during their annual croc research trip. Researchers from Australia Zoo and The University of Queensland caught the monster croc during their annual research trip, which involves catching and tagging crocs. The team concluded their trip this month on a high - reaching their target of 100 crocodiles - a goal which has been in place since the project began in 2007.

1834 tidal wave wreaks havoc on pioneers CONTINUING the story of the Mason brothers, pioneers of Cape Tribulation and Baileys Creek. The houses the brothers built at Tribulation were purchased in an auction at Low Island. They were left over from an English expedition to study the reef. One of Dave’s sons, Stan remembers going with his father Dave and his Uncle Andy, there could have been others, to the auction at Low Island. The houses were transported back to Tribulation and the homes rebuilt. Some interest must have been maintained in Baileys Creek as reports in March 1934 of a devastating cyclone, during which 53 lives were lost at sea refer to the banana plantation at Baileys being totally destroyed by a ‘tidal wave’, caused by the cyclone which hit the area. The Cooktown History Centre has oral history recordings of Annie Mason and her son Bill recalling the cyclone of 1934. The brothers scoured the beaches for survivors of the wrecked boats and housed several in their damaged homes until the seas abated enough

to take them out on the launch to Cooktown. The Courier-Mail, Friday, March 16, 1934 reported that 53 people drowned, with the possibility of the toll being as high as 75, and five vessels lost in the cyclone, the worst maritime disaster for many years. The Courier-Mail Saturday, March 17, 1934 also reported that “the cyclone did extensive damage to the banana growing settlement at Bailey’s Creek known as Almason, where there at present are five settlers, including three with families. There was a large crop of bananas almost ready for picking. The wind and tidal wave reduced the whole plantation to ruins, without, however, doing any material damage to property.”. “When they saw the tidal wave coming, the settlers rushed to their houses to get all possible food and clothing, which were rushed to higher ground. The water rose about 30 feet above the ordinary high tide level, and entered several dwellings. Luckily all the occupants were clear. Had the wave come during the night,

God is like our shadow The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. Psalm 121:5-8 AN explorer filmed the birth of a panda cub in the wild, a difficult assignment because a mother panda bear can be quite violent when intruders are near her young. The newborn cub was about the size of a rat. He could fit in the palm of your hand. The most amazing thing happened after this cub was born, in order to protect it from the elements, and to give it an

opportunity to grow sheltered from the dangers of the outside world, she spread her enormous body across this tiny cub and did not move for 28 days. She did not eat or sleep during this time. Her massive presence remained steadily hovering over this tiny being. It has since been discovered that this is a common practice when the panda bear is protecting her young. So it is with God. His omnipotent presence hovers over us lovingly protecting us, because he is never sleeps and he is always present. The same word “shade” also translates “shadow”. God is like our shadow.

The only way to hide it from view is to escape the light of day and to retreat to the darkness. When you are walking in the light, the shadow is clearly seen, walking with you, wherever you go. God has promised us “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” If God is there, there is nothing in our circumstances that should cause us to fear, for He is Lord over them. Blessings.

WITH CLARE RICHARDS

Tamarind season brings tart and sweet flavours IT is tamarind season now, with pods dropping all over the place. The sour-sweet, slightly caramel-like pulp of the tamarind is sought out all over the world for its satisfying balance of tart and sweet flavours. In Asia and the Pacific, tamarind is used for its tart/sour quality in the same ways that lemon or lime juice is used. Added to curries, soups, stews it provides a ‘warmer’, sour flavour than the bright citrusy flavours of lemon or lime and it is a common ingredient in chutneys and sauces. Tamarind is a good source of B

vitamins and minerals (phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium) and is high in the antioxidant, tartaric acid, which gives tamarind its sour taste. In traditional medicinal practices, it has several uses including as a digestive stimulant and a mild laxative. The pulp of tamarind can be extracted by putting the peeled flesh into a bowl, covering with boiling water, stirring with a spoon to release the flesh from the seeds and fibres then leaving for a few hours for the flesh to dissolve. Strain the juice off and you can then store it in the fridge, to add as needed to

cooking or as a base for drinks. This ‘juice’ can also be boiled down to make a thicker paste, either plain or in combination with spices (such as cinnamon or cardamom). Drinks based on tamarind are also popular in the tropics, made by diluting the paste with water or plain soda. The tart, slightly caramel flavour of tamarind is a great match with banana. Try tamarind juice (as made above) poured over ripe bananas (fresh or cooked) with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg if you like. A simple sambal can be made with mashed banana, finely diced chilli, tamarind juice or paste and a dash of fish

sauce to serve with steamed or stir fried vegetables and grilled meats, fish or chicken and rice. If you have some, add a bit of grated ginger or galangal as well. When the mango season starts, you can substitute mango for the banana, and ripe papaya also works well. So while we have the ripe fruits dropping around town, make up some juice or paste and keep it in the fridge or freezer to use as needed - yet another local, tropical delight to add flavour to our meals! And remember the unwritten rule of public harvesting - always leave some for other harvesters who love the fruit too.

Bushwalkers are back on track By JEANETTE COVACEVICH

Cooktown bushwalkers on their last trek. Photo: JUDE EDWARDS.

AFTER a few weeks off, Cooktown Bushwalkers are back “on track’. On Sunday last, 14 of us trekked up the “zig zag”, one of two bush tracks to the old tin and gold fields of China Camp in the headwaters of the Roaring Meg, south of Wujal Wujal. Usually our walks are remembered for their natural history discoveries. This one was different. Instead, we were treated to sterling 360 degree views - to the south, dense rainforested mountains;

to the east the Bloomfield River all the way to its mouth and the Hope Islands beyond; to the north and west, Mounts MacMillan, Finnegan, Misery and Boolbun South. We lunched at a generous friend’s house high on one of the many, open-forested ridges we crossed before making a fairly rapid descent to our cars for the tip home. Our next walk Is on Sunday, October 7, with the destination still to be decided. Phone Prue on 4069 6527 closer to time for details.

CROSSWORD No. 117

SUDOKU No. 117

Your  Lucky 



Stars

 

LIBRA (September 24th - October 23rd) The Moon/Node Midpoint moving through your sign could give your social life a helpful boost. Try to get out once or twice this week. Romance. A person that you dreamt about will soon be coming into your life. Be prepared for a surprise, however. What exactly do you expect to gain from this relationship?

SCORPIO (October 24th - November 22nd) A long trip will give you a chance to think about your plans for the future. There is one possibility that you may have forgotten about. Perhaps it’s best left forgotten. Romance. A friend who has been interested in you is a bit different than you think. Don’t try to figure out these small nuances and instead revel in them.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd - December 21st)

FOR KIDS

One particular member of the family has been causing a lot of anxiety recently. This person needs a very firm approach. Make sure they are being honest with you. Romance. You will need to trust yourself. Other people will want to give you advice, but this is more likely to mislead you. Keep looking forward, not backward.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd - January 20th) This will be a very dynamic time for you. Don’t do anything that depends too much on co-operation with other people. You need to be the lead person this week. Romance. You may be expecting a little too much from your partner. You may need to be more realistic this week and later you may be more demanding.

AQUARIUS (January 21st - February 19th) It is very important that you are open to any opportunity. A chance will come, but not in quite the form you are expecting. Romance. Your partner will not be giving you as much support as you would like. There is a reason, but it may not be quite what you think! Don’t take the reason to heart.

PISCES (February 20th - March 20th) You may be a little confused by recent events. Make sure you find out all the facts before you make a decision. Give yourself time to ponder over them. Romance. Your partner may be in a strange mood today. Don’t be too concerned and instead you should join in. Turn on music and dance!

FINDWORD No. 117 A LAUGH WITH LOTSA

ARIES (March 21st - April 20th) The Moon/Uranus Midpoint currently in your sign may make you a little impulsive. It’s up to you whether or not to act on these urges. Romance. The marriage of a person that you know will be under discussion this week. You may find that there are some important lessons to be learnt.

TAURUS (April 21st - May 21st)

For all your printing needs – www.lotsa.com.au

MUDDY RIVER

A comment which was meant as a joke should not be taken too seriously. Laugh it off and move on with your week. You may later find the humour in the comment. Romance. Do your best to avoid getting into a power struggle with your partner. It’s best to view all things as shared and not an issue of control.

GEMINI (May 22nd - June 21st) You may be a little excitable this week. You will get what you want - but you will have to calm down first. Try exercising to relieve this energy. Romance. Try not to feel too self-conscious. You may be trying a little too hard to create a good impression. Let your true self shine and you will come away with the relationship you want.

CANCER (June 22nd - July 23rd) This is not the time to give up trying! A lastminute surge of energy should be all that you need. Spend the week relishing the fact that things worked out. Romance. A meeting with friends will give you a chance to relax. Someone who is very quiet will have a lot to say later. Be sure to lend an ear.

LEO (July 24th - August 23rd)

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Never underestimate a child’s ability

to get into more trouble.

– Martin Mull

SOLUTIONS No. 117

A chance encounter with a dog or cat may be more significant than you realise. It is especially important to be kind to all animals this week. Romance. You may be enjoying the air of mystery, but at some stage you will have to tell everyone what is going on! Leave this for the end of the week.

VIRGO (August 24th - September 23rd) Events which happened in your childhood may be having a much stronger effect on your feelings than you realise. Talk through these events with family. Romance. You may have forgotten to reply to a friend’s letter. Try not to let this person down. A paper letter will have much more meaning than an email.

Undefeated Panthers take Supa8 comp.

Barra smashing them at the Wharf

By ROBYN HOLMES LAST weekend’s Supa 8s competition kicked off with matches being played at the school oval and Botanic Gardens. The Supa 8s are 14-over, 8-a-side cricket matches. Saturday at the school the Black Mountain Panthers versed Kats for a final score of 110 and 28 respectively. BMP proved to strong for the girls, but provided plenty of entertainment throughout their match with Bulla going for the smash and “woosh” he was on the ground in reverse position. BMP then faced Mareeba and, with scores of 163 to 110, again proved too strong. The win put BMP straight through to Sunday’s finals. In the third match at the school, the Mouldie Oldies 99, lost to Carton 102, with Carton’s victory eliminating the Mouldies from the competition. At the Botanic Gardens on Saturday, Juniors 101 defeated Mouldie Olides 75 first up. The young team coached by Ben Welsh showed their skills with Zane Stallan taking the catch of the weekend and the victory off the Mouldies. Alkoomie Spotted Turtle Doves better known as the STDs played and won against Carton 186 to 139 in the second round. The enthusiastic Juniors then scored 130 against the Kats 74 in the third round to take out their second win and secure a spot in the finals. STDs faced Mareeba in

Bart Johnson from the Lure Shop with a Spanish Mackerel caught off the bottom at night on a single 9/0. Photo submitted. MOST boats have been dusted off after the winter, so it is worth checking that your Coastguard membership is up to date, as old fuel or tired batteries or just plain bad luck have caused a couple of call-outs in the last week. All ended well with a couple of minor mechanical issues leaving boats disabled. One good reason to log on with the local Coastguard QF16 on channel 21 or 16 VHF is someone knows you are out boating and what your ETR is. If you are overdue they will take some action. This simple process also confirms that your radio is working correctly. Offshore, Mackerel, tuna and bottom fish have all been on the chew during the last week, with the best Spanish around 35lb, which was a solid fish that put up a great fight. There have also been lots of coral trout and Nannygai around, with the best Nanny about 12.5 kg - another great fish. During the last week, the Endeavour River has

been alive with bait, with a load of small queen fish and trevelly working some very small bait. Some solid fingermark and mangrove jacks have been caught about the Marton ramp on small herring, while prawns have produced some grunter. Big baits have been smashed by barra from the Wharf and in the deep holes in the river. Daily captures of barra from the Wharf have kept anglers very happy with captures at day break and a lot around the bottom of the tide as well, so catch a pike or herring and spend a bit of time at the Wharf and you might land a monster. Mackerel have also been sorting a few out at the Wharf, so be prepared when you lob a “livie” out. Don’t leave that rod lying on the Wharf as it might launch over the side leaving a bubble trail heading to sea. Tight Lines Russell Bowman The Lure Shop

Stumbles lives up to his name in run YET another Monday night and the brave assembled at Muff and Tuff’s for the country ramble. Hot and sultry conditons saw the pack ambling thru manicured parklands set for an easy stroll. Off into the rough plunged the brave leaders followed by the thoughtless pack recounting tales and stretching known truths beyond belief. The false trail fooling no-one but the setter and his eager disciple Stumbles - too busy talking to think where he was going. Into the scrub, in all directions looking for

Pulling out our trusted expert on historical matters we were all educated on old methods of gold extraction amidst oohs and aaahs as we viewed an old stamping machine. On home, spoilt only by attention seeking Stumbles living up to his name. Back at Hash base, in time for a magnificent sunset, matters of the world were debated and solutions of no import were decided. Down downs ensued: welcome back to Nathan from West Australia and welcome to first timer Lucy. Followed by trumped up charges and out-

TWO new shooters in Jannie Basson and Adam Bart were welcomed to the sport at last Saturday’s Rimfire Shoot at Cameron Creek Range. Adam took part in the Iron Sight Benchrest event with Peter Roesler and from a possible score of 250 points, Peter scored 214 while Adam finished with 180. Jannie competed against Toby in the Scoped Benchrest and from a possible score of 200 points Toby returned a flawless, while Jannie finished only two points behind on 198. Jannie’s son Otto watched on with keen interest and can hardly wait until he turns 11 next year so he can participate in the shooting. The first weekend of October is a Shotgun DTL Shoot Saturday, October 6 at 1pm, then on Tuesday, October 9 at Fishermans Wharf, the AGM will be held from 7pm, followed by a general meeting.

right fabricated half truths, an enjoyable dinner of leftover bits, out of Africa and apricots left the Hashers well satisfied. All agreed to meet same time, some other place, next week to do it all again. Next week’s run will leave from Offals place on Railway Avenue at 5.30pm on Monday, October 1.

Toby 10 short of a perfect score ON Wednesday we had eight shooters compete in a Service Core match with a possible of 360 on offer.

the final round of the day, notching up 176 before poor light halted play. The match continued on Sunday morning to see the STDs take the win from Mareeba, who conceded early. The finals on Sunday stared out with the Juniors making 72 against BMP’s 110. BMP were again too strong for their young competitors. Carton who went into the finals in fourth position played the STDs with the finals score being 107 to 137 respectively with STDs the victors. The Grand Final and BMP are undefeated - George, Ash, Glenn, Eril, Bulla McIvor, Wade, Clive and Geoffrey Kulka are fresh from a rest and ready to take on the STDs, who also fielded a strong side with William Rofe, Wilbur Tomilson, Scott Stallan, Jamie and Dan Greaves, Tony Holmes, Cameron Forward and Craig Wason.

BMP batted first, scoring 164. Geoffrey’s was the first wicket to fall on 21 from Tony’s bowling caught Jamie. Jamie took the second wicket, bowling Glen for 18 and then Clive fell for 7 caught Cameron off Jamie. Eril top-scored with 53 before being caught by Dan off Tony. George fell for 18. Wade finished with the second-highest run rate with 32 not out, while Ash finished on 7 not out. STDs came into bat with Wilo and Scott opening. Scott was caught behind for 13 off Bulla. Wilo was stumped on 23 and Wilbur caught by Wade off Ash for 44. Tony then put 39 runs on the board along with Jamie who scored 44 - both not out. The goal of 164 was just out of reach for the STDs who managed 144 runs. It was a fantastic effort by BMP who went through undefeated to take the 2012 Supa 8s premiership.

Tanya, Julie slug it out THE Birdies Nest competition sponsored by Alice Burton is still up and running each week for the Saturday competition (not for team events though) and we have had three Birdies on the difficult 15th Green in the past two weeks. Marilyn Clark and Julie Sauer shared the spoils, two balls. on Saturday, September 15 and Kim Copland also landed a Birdie on Saturday, 22 to receive two balls. The ‘nest’ gets bigger by one ball each week if the Birdies Nest is not landed so come out and give it a try! As expected, no one could knock Blue Hobbs from the top spot with a nett score of 57 in The Italian Restaurant Weekly Stroke competition last week. Graham Burton gave it his best and was the runner-up for the week with a nett score of 62. Only eight members competed in The Cooktown Hardware and Italian Restaurant Monthly Medal Competition on Saturday, and again Blue Hobbs turned in a terrific score of nett 61 to win the men’s division on a count-back from Steve Butler who also turned in a score of nett 61. Such a shame we have temporary greens at the moment and the score cards are not being processed through Golf Link, as I’m sure Blue’s handicap would be severely affected with the past two weeks’ scores he has turned in. Between the only two ladies who competed, Alice Burton was the winner with a nett of 65, with Julie Sauer the runner-up with a nett 74. Blue Hobbs was on fire on Saturday and was the only one who managed to land a nearest-the-pin which was on 9/18. And he missed the Birdie putt but still managed a par!

Steve Butler was the lowest gross score for the day with his 75 off the stick. In the T a n y a Eizenberg and Bunker Julie Sauer are doing it again as Tanya was the winner for Sunday’s Cape York Tyres 9-Hole Stableford competition with 20 Stableford points and Julie runner-up with 19 points. Julie Sauer is the field for The Italian Restaurant Weekly Stableford competition with 37 Stableford points, while Tanya is currently in runner-up position with 36. Déjà vu for all of us as the girls managed this feat only a couple of weeks ago. This Saturday’s competition is a Bisque Par. Our new polo shirts, caps and bucket hats have now been received, so make sure you show your pride in your club and purchase one. The polo shirts come in navy nlue, white, mauve, red and apple green and the cost is $40 per polo.

Warriors are premiers after classic battle WARRIORS d CROCS 38-20 a converted try of their own scored by Brandon Moon to level the scores. And then a penalty to the Warriors on the first tackle from the restart of play, saw them cross again on the ensuing fourth tackle off the tap to take a 10-6 lead over the Crocs. Penalties again played roles in the Crocs next two tries that saw them equalise at 10-all and then go to a 16-10 lead, after which a period of play followed that saw neither side dominate possession or territory. Dropped ball and bad passes from both sides slowed the game until Brandon Moon crossed for his second Warriors try which was converted for the scores to be squared-up at 16-all - the eventual half-time score. The second half started at a furious pace, with the Warriors testing a resolute Crocs defence time-andtime again, and as is often the case when a team batters an opposition without scoring, they quickly concede a relatively easy try. Gauai Wallace crossed for his second try, which was unconverted for the Crocs to assume a 20-16 lead, but it didn’t last long with the Warriors hitting straight back with a try to Walsh on the right edge of the Crocs defence and Daniel Woibo kicking the sideline conversion to give the Backstreet boys a 22-20 lead. From then, the Warriors took control of the match, but did not seem to be able to drive the final nails into a Crocs coffin that did not want to close - their early second-half defensive effort seemed to have used up all the

By GARY HUTCHISON HOPE Vale’s Backstreet Warriors won their first Three Rivers premiership title last Saturday night, defeating the Cooktown Crocs 38-20 in a classic, hard-hitting, no-holds-barred grand final arm wrestle. But the game was almost postponed before it started, when two banks of the John Street floodlights failed to fire leaving one side of the field in darkness. An emergency call was made to electricians, but frantic attempts at repair could only fix one of the banks, so both teams and the match officials were given the option of either playing the game with one set of lights out or playing the big one next week. However, there was no stopping those blokes. This was the game they had shed blood and sweated litres of body fluids for - it was game on! While there was an issue with the lighting, not so with the infamous Cooktown “breeze”, with last week’s gusting winds absent for only a gentle, cooling replacement to make conditions more comfortable for the players. The Crocs had first use of the ball in the match and got off to a dream, nomistakes start that saw an enterprising attacking foray deep into the Warriors territory. Two penalties conceded by the Warriors soon saw Gauai Wallace cross for a converted try for the Crocs to take an early 6-0 lead. But that didn’t last too long with the Warriors hitting straight back with

Holes started to appear everywhere in the Cooktown defensive line, but courageous, last-ditch covering tackles from their outside backs kept sending the message to the Warriors that they weren’t going to get the title easily. In fact, the match was poised at such a stage, that had the Crocs scored during this period, it might have been enough to rejuvenate a come-back. However, the Warriors soon found the nails to hammer into the coffin, scoring 16 unanswered points to secure the premiership cup.
