Airport emergency exercise IT was a meeting of the services, an exchange of knowledge and a exercise in co-operation when members of Queensland Ambulance, State Emergency Services, Weipa Police, Rural Fire Brigade, Weipa Health Services, Weipa Airport and Rio Tinto Alcan Fire and Rescue participated in a simulated air-crash rescue at the Weipa Airport on Monday morning. The practical exercise,

co-ordinated by Weipa Airport, is held once every two years, with desktop exercises completed every other year. Once fires were extinguished 15 “victims” were rescued from the crash and given comfort and medical attention by the attending services. Senior Sergeant Brett Jenkins of the Weipa Police said the exercise had gone well and revealed a few shortcomings that would be addressed.

CAPE York Traditional Owners are in the process of developing a Turtle and Dugong Conservation Strategy. Last month Balkanu hosted a workshop for Traditional Owners to articulate their vision and strategy to maintain healthy populations in Cape York. The outcomes of this workshop will be taken to a larger group of Traditional Owners from across the region on November 14 to 18 in Cairns. Traditional Owner of the Dhiidharr Clan of the GuuguYimidthirr people, Frankie Deemal, said this single forum in November will bring together the knowledge of 3-4,000 years of cumulative dugong and turtle experience held by Traditional Owners. The framework developed

at the November Taskforce forum will then be taken to local Traditional Owner Groups for consultation and adoption. Once the strategy is completed it will be presented to State and Federal governments for action. For more than 30 years Traditional Owners have been calling on Governments to assist action on dugong and

turtle conservation on the Cape. On Sept 8th the Commonwealth and State Governments announced a $5M package focused on Queensland with some long awaited and encouraging key principles that recognize the critical value of Indigenous leadership in all aspects of solution development and community scale strategies

which dove-tail into a regional and state framework. Based on the outcome of the first Cape York planning workshop (funded by Cape York people) and at the request of Traditional Owners, the Commonwealth Government agreed to fund the larger November forum to enable further strategy development. Mr Deemal said following these community workshops the TO-driven Cape York Turtle and Dugong Taskforce expects to have a robust strategy document developed by Traditional Owners to guide government investment in Cape York and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have a management solution for immediate action that will enable Indigenous management of these iconic species,â&#x20AC;? Mr Deemal said.

Free disposal service to help fight illegal dumping RIO Tinto Alcan Weipa has announced it will cover the costs of degassing refrigerators and airconditioners at the Evans Landing landfill. Rio Tinto Alcan Weipa general manager operations Jo-Anne Scarini said she hopes the offer of free disposal for these white goods at the landfill will deter people from dumping them into the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems white goods, such

as fridges, are frequently part of the rubbish that is illegally dumped in our town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is concerning, both from a visual pollution perspective and because they cause a lot of environmental damage,â&#x20AC;? Ms Scarini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only will residents have access to a landfill that offers free disposal of general domestic waste, but now free domestic disposal of refrigera-

tors and airconditioners.â&#x20AC;? Under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995, it is a legislative requirement that landfills reclaim and recycle the gases found in most refrigerators and airconditioners. Ms Scarini said it is important that refrigerators and airconditioners are disposed of correctly as their gasses are

known atmospheric pollutants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in a beautiful region and it is always disappointing when we see rubbish through our community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just one initiative to help combat illegal dumping. Collectively we can make a real difference.â&#x20AC;? The free domestic disposal of refrigerators and air conditioners at the Evans Landing landfill is effective immediately.

Significant clean-up operation commences ON Wednesday, October 26, a major clean-up of illegally dumped waste around the Lakes area was kicked off thanks to an initiative from Rio Tinto Alcan Weipa. Rio Tinto Alcan Weipa general manager operations Jo-Anne Scarini, said Sodexo was contracted to collect the illegally dumped items and relocate it to the landfill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was disappointed to hear that highly pollutant items such as fridges, engine oils, and batteries were found in the bushland,â&#x20AC;? Ms Scarini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just hope that with the free domestic disposal of refrigerators and air conditioners at the land fill, and now this major clean-up, it will mark a change in illegal dumping in our community.â&#x20AC;? The Lakes clean-up will cover a three kilometre stretch of bushland along the foreshore across the two Lakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect this clean-up to take two weeks. However this could be extended as we plan to clear other illegally dumped waste in bushland behind Deplanchea Terrace,â&#x20AC;? Ms Scarini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to acknowledge Sodexo for all their work in the hot and humid conditions and Cleanaway for their cooperation with the waste collection.â&#x20AC;?

Traffic lights and boom gates for Mapoon Road RIO Tinto Alcan Weipa will install traffic lights and boom gates at a new haul road crossing along Mapoon Road. R i o Ti n t o A l c a n Weipa general manager operations Jo-Anne Scarini said the move will ensure the safety of all road users as the Andoom mine expands east to new areas within the mine lease. Work has commenced and, when installed, the lights will be installed to operate in a similar way

to the East Weipa lights along the Peninsula Development Road. “We expect installation to take two weeks, and during this time traffic controllers will be in place at the temporary diversion,” Ms Scarini said. “You may have to stop for a few minutes, on the instruction of traffic controllers, while heavy vehicles pass. “For your safety we ask that you follow their instructions and drive to conditions.”

The boom gates and traffic lights will be located about seven kilometres along the Mapoon Road from the Andoom Road turnoff. Ms Scarini said mining is expanding east into a new area, which has resulted in the need for a crossing on the Mapoon Road. For further information on the changes, contact Rio Tinto Alcan Weipa’s community feedback hotline 1800 707 633.

Cairns Drug Squad members Brett Richard and Nick O’Brien were in Weipa earlier this year to promote the award-winning Weed It Out project.

THE local team behind a groundbreaking project were recognised at the 2011 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards held in Australian Parliament House, Canberra last Tuesday. The Queensland Police Service’s Weed It Out project and James Cook University’s Cape York Cannabis Project took out the National Meritorious Police Award. The project is based on providing evidence-based interventions focused on reducing harms associated with cannabis use and the associated problems relating to drug misuse in Indigenous communities across Cape York and the Torres Strait. The Weed it Out Project is funded by the Department of Health and Ageing and aims to reduce the harms associated with cannabis use in Indigenous communities in Cape York and Torres Strait. The fundamental objectives of the project are to change community attitudes to cannabis use Page 4 Western Cape Bulletin November 2, 2011

and implement crime prevention and supply reduction strategies. The Cape York Cannabis Project is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and its main objective is to encourage a reduction in the demands of cannabis using awareness-raising, community surveys and feedback of information in selected Cape York communities. The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards are a joint Australian Government, state and territory initiative and are managed by the Australian Institute of Criminology. The awards reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crimes in Australia, to encourage public initiatives and to assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects that will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.

Renowned herpetologist, Mike Swan visits Mapoon WHEN herpetologist and senior reptile keeper at Zoos Victoria, Mike Swan accepted an invitation to present a workshop to the Mapoon Land and Sea Rangers and Mapoon Primary School children he knew he would be coming to reptile heaven. With every family of Australian reptiles represented in Cape York Mike couldn’t wait to head north and get acquainted with our diverse wildlife. Mike conducted a two and a half day workshop with the Mapoon Rangers, which included classroom work as well as field trips to collect and identify a myriad of reptiles including tree snakes, longnose water dragons, geckos and skinks. It was however, a field-trip to Tent Pole on the Wenlock River which thrilled the herpetologist the most. “What an amazing place Tent Pole is. In a brief period of time we saw well over 50 crocodiles in their natural habitat which was so exciting for me,” Mike said. With four of the most dangerous snakes in Australia calling our region home, the Taipan,

Mapoon student Eshtamoa Ase and Mike Swan with a Common Tree snake.

Mulga (King Brown), Death Adder and Eastern Brown Mike made sure he included information about snake venom and snake-bite first aid in his workshops with both the Rangers and the Mapoon school children. “All families of snakes are represented in the Cape, including sea and mud snakes, so it is important people living with these reptiles understand what to do if bitten by a snake,” Mike said. While in Mapoon Mike was called upon to remove a snake from a resident’s laundry. “It was only a tree snake but as these snakes tend to be yellow

with black heads in this region they are often mistaken for a venomous snake and killed,” Mike said following the successful removal and release of the snake. Mike’s visit to the Mapoon School coincided with the students studying food chains and the children found his visit both entertaining and informative. “I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Cape York and believe the Mapoon Rangers and school children got a lot out of my visit,” Mike said. “And with the amount and variety of reptiles to be found in the area, I will definitely be coming back”.

Bowlies tempting new cocktail menu FANCY an icy-cold cocktail on a hot afternoon? Then the Weipa Bowls Club is the place to head. Newly appointed restaurant manager, Alex Taske is very excited about the club’s new cocktail menu, which has 11 tempting selections to choose from including Carpentaria Bliss, Mojito and Midori Splice. Alex and her fiance, Darren Coleman, came to Weipa from Cairns, and she says it has been a “big change” but they are so far really enjoying the move. There are changes in the air for the Bowls Club also, with the introduction of a new till system in the next couple of weeks expected to streamline restaurant service.

It’s time to rethink your financial situation

“The new system will be fantastic, and hopefully will allow our restaurant staff to return to table service,” Alex said “We are trying to create a restaurant-feel, rather than a bistro.” Alex says that lunch at the club will remain casual, with the addition of takeaway sandwiches and foccacias available from the dessert display cabinet. There have been some new additions to the dinner menu also, and in around a month’s time Monday and Tuesday night meals will take on an international flavour with a different cuisine each week. Sunday night roasts will still be available and families are always welcome at the Weipa Bowls Club.

FEATURE STORY

Worlds apart come The distance between Weipa and Launceston is close to 5000 kms, the climate completely different, the cultural gap enormous, yet the youth of Mapoon and Napranum and Scotch Oakburn College found plenty in common, sharing experiences, stories and adventure in an exchange they all describe as life-changing... OR the second year, a youth exchange has taken place between the students of a Uniting Church school in Launceston, Tasmania and the Indigenous young people from the Uniting Church in Western Cape York. Scotch Oakburn College chaplain Rev Graham Bartley and teacher Samantha Dingemanse brought a group of six young people up from cold Launceston in June, earlier on this year. They were met in Cairns by Uniting Church youth leaders Marda Pitt and James Hughes who guided them through the Daintree rainforest (Kuku-Yalanji land) where they were welcomed to the most bio-diverse land area in Australia by Kuku-Yalanji traditional owner Frances Walker. Frances explained to the Tasmanians that the rainforest was the supermarket and pharmacy for her people, supplying food and medicine to Aboriginal people there for thousands of years. Following a visit to Bloomfield River State School the group continued on and met Nukal Warra elder Willie Gordon, who showed them his country near Hopevale and discussed art, philosophy and ethics with them.

Scotch Oakburn student, Tara Robertson,was impressed with Mr Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reflections â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked how Willie Gordon said that we were put on the earth to look after it and how each painting has a story to it and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to try to discover the story of the art you seeâ&#x20AC;?. Karly Graham was also impressed with the tour by Willie Gordon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were very impressed by the tour Willie did with us and the knowledge he shared with usâ&#x20AC;?. The group then examined the Quinkan art sites near Laura before travelling to Western Cape York where they were welcomed to that country by elders of Napranum Uniting Church. Ella Forsyth was surprised by how much rock art there was at Laura and the good condition of it. She added â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gave me insight into the lifestyle that Aboriginal people from that country had.â&#x20AC;? Based in Mapoon, the group spent the next few days getting to know the youth of Mapoon and Napranum and learnt how to hunt for mud crabs, find akul shells and go fishing. They were accompanied by Tjungandji traditional owner Marda Pitt who was delighted to show them her country around Mapoon.

Gus Leighton from Tasmania was delighted to be able to get to know the kids in Mapoon. He commented â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids were really good to me...willing to share stories with me and talk...I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect it. Nicole Williams concurred, adding that it was not just the cultural experiences that were unforgettable in Mapoon but â&#x20AC;&#x153;... the people we met were fantastic and so welcoming. The hospitality was definitely a highlight of the trip.â&#x20AC;? The next part of their Cape York adventure took them back to Laura for the biennial Dance Festival, accompanied by their new friends from Mapoon and Napranum. Here they enjoyed the traditional dances, culture and music from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities from around Queensland and even from the Northern Territory. Tara Robertson was excited about the strength of culture which she found there â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just loved how proud people were of their culture and how passionate they were about their dancing!â&#x20AC;? As they returned to Launceston, blessed by the people and places they had experienced in Cape York, they were able to tell their families and school mates about

Reconciliation relationships and adventure go very well together

the amazing time they had and the experiences and relationships that had made the trip so special. The relationship between the young people of Cape York and Launceston grew through Facebook and texts as culture and daily experiences continued to be shared and discussed. In September, a group of seven from the Western Cape Uniting Church youth drove down to Cairns and flew to Launceston for the next stage of the adventure. With temperatures around zero in the morning it was a climatic shock for the Cape Yorkers who were not used to putting on four layers of clothes every day. Welcome to country was made by elders of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) in Hobart and by traditional owner/cultural guide Patsy Cameron. The Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre invited the young people to stay at the Larapuna cottages, near the famous Bay of Fires beach and some of the Cape York young people were brave (crazy ) enough to swim in the 10 degree water at the beach.

– Western Cape Uniting Church youth leader, James Hughes Cradle Mountain, patted Tasmanian devils and threw snowballs at each other on Mt Wellington. The Cape York youth were also able to attend church and chapel services where they spoke in front of 700 students about themselves, their favourite activities and their life in Weipa and Mapoon. This presented quite a challenge for them, however they were able to represent themselves and their communities in an interesting and confident manner. Warm hospitality was shown to the Cape York young people

visited classes at Scotch Oakburn College and participated in some of the school activities of their friends. The time in Tasmania went quickly and tears flowed when it was time to come home. Qantas was a little awkward getting back to Weipa but a night in a five-star hotel made the inconvenience bearable. The young people continue to correspond and the exchange will carry on into the future. Reconciliation relationships and adventure go very well together.

Scherger disturbance Queensland Police, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship and its detention services provider Serco are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding a disturbance which occurred at the centre on October 22, involving about 70 clients. Three people were taken to hospital for treatment following the incident however, all have now been discharged. There was some minor damage to property which has been repaired. Order was quickly restored and the centre has since remained calm.

Scherger construction While work continues to replace the marquees at the centre, capacity at Scherger has reverted to about 345 clients. There are currently 307 clients accommodated there. Construction is expected to be completed by December and once the new buildings are operational, capacity at the facility will return to about 600.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship, the detention services provider Serco and health services provider International Health and Medical Services continue to manage the client caseload. Serco also continues to recruit people from the local area to meet its staffing needs where possible and has to date employed 21 staff locally.

Visit from CISSR and CCG meeting Three members of the Independent Council for Immigration Services and Status Resolution were scheduled to visit Scherger over the weekend of October 30 as part of their regular visits to centres across the immigration detention network. The next meeting of the Community Consultative Group was also scheduled to be held at the Weipa Town Authority on Monday, October 31.

Comments? If you would like to get in touch with the department directly, please don’t hesitate to send an email to: scherger.idc@immi.gov.au

Customer Service: 1800 640 079 Weipa: 07 4069 7309 Cairns: 07 4038 7777

Come in and see us.

WEIPA station recently welcomed the McLoughlins into the fold. Coming from the hard streets of Ipswich town to picturesque Weipa is definitely a change of scenery and pace. The Beat (TB) recently sat down with Monique and Adam and asked some introductory questions. TB – Welcome to you both. Ipswich to Weipa! Could you get a bigger sea change? Monique – Not really. But it has been a welcome change. The best part has been escaping the rat race of the south-east pocket. TB – What were you guys doing down south? Monique – I was a detective in the Ipswich Child Protection Investigation Unit and Adam worked in the Ipswich Tactical Crime Squad. TB – What skills can you bring to the station? Adam – In the TCS we concentrated on drug and property crime so I’m hoping some of that knowledge can be brought into the team in Weipa. Monique – I worked primarily in the child abuse area. While I don’t envisage a lot of child abuse specifically, I hope my skills working with children will come into good use. TB – And what do you want to get out of Weipa? Monique – We came to the Cape to experience a different, and beautiful region of Queensland. We’re really looking forward to exploring and seeing parts of the world that people pay thousands of dollars to come and see. Adam – Fishing. TB – Short and sweet Adam! Do you like throwing a line Monique? Monique – Hell no! TB – So no fishing! But I see you listed shopping, swimming and fresh coffee as your favourite past times. How did Adam convince you to move all the way up here? Monique – Well I can shop online. I can swim at the pool. And I can get my

coffee from the new McDonalds store that is opening up across from the Golfies and Bowls. Apparently they are having a McCafe in there. I’m so excited. TB – Damn, why didn’t I think of opening a Macca’s up here! I couldn’t help but notice you are already a member of the Wine in Open Spaces (WINO’S) club at Pine Road. Monique – It’s an exclusive club. I’m proud of my membership. TB - Adam I hear that you had a budding movie career on the Gold Coast. What happened? Adam - *laughs* Not quite. Just after I moved to Brisbane in mid-2000 I was looking for work and saw an ad in the paper asking for movie extras. When I rang up I was told the movie was called ‘The Great Raid’ starring Benjamin Bratt. The story was about an American raid to free prisoners from a Japanese prisoner of war camp at the end of the Second World War. It was going to be filmed on Bribie Island just off Brisbane and they were looking for local Australian blokes to play POWs. I was sure that this was a role I was born for. Unfortunately I stayed up late the night before the audition watching ‘Big Brother – Up Late’, slept in the next morning and missed the audition. TB – Tragic! So I hear you like fishing? Adam – FINALLY, I thought you would never get to this subject. Well what I’m hoping is...[22 minute response edited for boredom sake - editor]...and basically that’s how I prepare my boat. TB – zzzzz Monique – zzzzz Adam – Is anyone awake? TB – *rubbing my eyes and yawning* Well thanks for spending some time speaking with us. Again, welcome to Weipa. We’re very happy to have you both here. Monique – Thanks TB. Adam – Have you got any spare size five hooks?

HELL is a frightening place, and it’s revealing that the Lord Jesus spoke more on hell and heaven. When you consider that he was willing to give his life in order that people may escape the fires of hell, it must be a terrible place or state of mind indeed. Imagine going through eternity, burning with frustration and disappointment and saying over and over and over again, “Oh why didn’t I listen! They were telling me all about how to be saved from the coming judgement of God, by accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of my life. But I just laughed! Oh why didn’t I listen! Scary, eh?

To escape this fiery place, we need to confess that we are sinners in need of a Saviour, because, as outdated as it sounds, it’s sin that is the cause of all the problems of the world. We n e e d t o r e a d where the Lord Jesus died for our sins, and how his shed blood put us right with God. When we accept that, we then need to ask Jesus Christ to come into our life, to be Lord of our life. We are no longer our own, so we need to repent (turn away from our sinful ways) and learn to live the Lord’s way. That is pretty much the born-again requirements, and remember- God reads the

heart, so it has to come from the heart. Jeremiah Ch 17 v 10 says, “I, the Lord, search the minds and tests the heart of people. I treat each of them according to the way they live, according to what they do.” God in his love would rather that nobody goes to hell, but he’s given all peoples a free will, and we can either accept or reject his offer of eternal life in heaven. 2 Peter Ch 3 v 9 says, “The Lord is not slow to do what he has promised, as some think. Instead he is patient with you, because he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants all to turn away from their sins.” God is love. Rev Michael Connolly


LETTER / OPINION

Letter to the editor email: editor@westerncapebulletin.com.au

The gap is nowhere near closed PLEASE find below a segment of a letter I wrote to Jenny Macklin MP, Minister of Indigenous Affairs to which I have had no formal response. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry to say that I also visit rural communities regularly and things are still none the better. Seriously itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as though I were in Africa or a third world country when I visit these communities and even certain streets within the city. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been over 30 years since the government razed Mapoon to the ground for the sake of the mining industry. Just because time has moved us all along and that treatment towards black people by society has indeed progressed, it does not mean that we are close to an ideal outcome. In order to achieve these things the government needs

to actively listen to the ground level and participate with the stakeholders to implement effective and holistic solutions to identified problems. That means Aboriginal people need to be the ones to make strategies and the Government will need to listen, work with us and for us to implement them. Aborigines need to take back ownership of their problems, the causes and together we can then make pro-active solutions. It is not our place as political people to front up with those solutions, we need to hand the onus back onto the stakeholders and allow them to direct and inform us. I am sorry to say that the gap is nowhere near closed and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be if the Government is behind the wheel...â&#x20AC;? Why do we, as the ďŹ rst people, still have to ďŹ ght to even be included in our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; furthermore, why do we have to ďŹ ght without the support and advocacy of the

respective Government departments and ministers employed to do just that? Also, regarding intervention policy (namely the alcohol restrictions/ban laws in Cape York) why, if a community is deemed by law and legislation to be a problem zone, are there no specialty services in place in such places to truly address the problems? Is it too expensive? Whenever I ask what is being done to address these problems, I am quoted some shallow mission statement from the Close the Gap policy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested in knowing what is really going on. Any policy/legislation/ strategy intended to inďŹ&#x201A;uence/ affect A&TSI people, needs to be overseen and signed off by a select Consultation Committee of A&TSI people as nominated by their peers. In conclusion: as Mick Gooda implies, but in my own words, seeking solutions from

our Governments for these concerns is getting us nowhere; these are now issues for the United Nations to consider. Jack Andrew Wilkie-Jans Candidate, Division 9 Cairns FNQ

ABSTUDY opening doors Giveaway: an oldie, but a goodie for Indigenous students CENTRAL Queensland Indigenous school student Nadia Wolmby is thankful for the opportunities ABSTUDY has opened up for her and thousands like her across Queensland. Nadia is from Aurukun, south of Weipa and is proud of her cultural heritage. She speaks her mother’s language Wik Ngathan and her father’s language, Wik Mungkan. As a boarding school student at the Rockhampton Girls Grammar, Nadia speaks and studies her third language, English together with maths, business, health and physical education. Nadia said ABSTUDY had provided her with access to a quality education and opportunities she’d only dreamed of before. “Rockhampton Girls Grammar is a great school and has been really supportive academically and culturally,” said Nadia. “Moving away from home wasn’t an easy thing at first, but with the help of the school and Centrelink’s ABSTUDY officers, I’m feeling much more confident now as a person, and about where I’m headed and where I’ve come from,” said the 16 year old, now completing her Year 11 studies. When not in the classroom, Nadia can be found on the netball court where she competes in the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Netball competition.

Rockhampton Centrelink ABSTUDY officer, Rae Willie with boarding school student Nadia Wolmby who hails from Aurukun.

Nadia was given an extra boost this year when she was selected to be part of Centrelink’s Indigenous school-based apprentice program. The apprenticeships are a 12 to 18 month entry level program, consisting of a variety of on-the-job learning and formal off-the-job training. “I work each Friday, at the Rockhampton Centrelink office. It’s been really good and given me an idea of what I might do when I finish school,” said Nadia. Rockhampton Centrelink ABSTUDY officer, Raeleen Willie said now is the time for parents of students about to make the shift up to high school to confirm enrolments and submit their claims for ABSTUDY. “As Nadia has shown, ABSTUDY is all about giving our Indigenous youth options for the future,” said Raeleen. “For students planning to move on to high school and boarding school next year, it’s

important enrolments are confirmed and ABSTUDY claims submitted as soon as possible. “It’s best to start taking action now. Leaving it to the last minute may mean missing out on a place and it could affect ABSTUDY payments. “ABSTUDY not only helps meet the costs of school fees, books and stationery. In the case of boarding school students ABSTUDY also takes care of the travel arrangements as well.” Raeleen said Centrelink will send out letters shortly to existing ABSTUDY students, asking for details such as mailing addresses and future study plans to be updated. “ I t ’s i m p o r t a n t Centrelink has this information to ensure we can keep in touch and students receive all their entitlements,” she said. Claim forms and information are available from the Centrelink w e b s i t e , w w w. c e n trelink.gov.au or call 13 23 17.

MARCUS Welby, MD was a highly successful medical drama that aired on Channel Nine from 1969 – 1976. Produced by David Victor and David J. O’Connell, this informative drama confronted many sensitive and controversial health and social issues in a manner that far exceeded its time, while being touted as an inspiration for many of modern medical dramas of today, such as House, MD. R o b e r t Yo u n g ( F a t h e r Knows Best) starred as Dr. Welby, a family practitioner with an unorthodox approach to treating his patients, an approach that often clashed with his young, more straightlaced assistant Dr. Steven Kiley (James Brolin). But a clash between wellmeaning physicians can bare fruits of all nature, especially those which help meander the volatile path of life, or death.

Filming for the SBS television show, Living Black, at Bondi Beach on Monday.

UU from page 24 As part of the Indigenous Marathon Project runners completed a Certificate III in Community Recreation specialising in Indigenous health. Sports first aid, sports training and planning and implementing health programs are all part of the qualification which they used to launch a local instalment of the National Deadly Fun Run Series. Bianca recently launched the series in Weipa which saw almost 100 people participate in the event. She, like the others has become a role model and is inspiring her community to lead an active healthy life. “The project is not just about

the handful that make it to New York” Deek said. “It’s so much more. It’s about creating role models who have a real chance to make a difference in their communities by inspiring others to exercise and stay away from junk food.” he said. Rob de Castella also believes the Indigenous Marathon Project is just the “jumping-off point” for Aboriginal and Torres Strait long-distance runners, “It’s my goal to have an Australian Indigenous long-distance runner on the Olympic team bound for Rio in 2016,” Deek said. Crew from SBS Living Black will be accompanying the team to New York to document the trip and the history-making run.

Cowboys help out on the Cape Junior golfers awarded THE next group of young representative rugby league players from Cape York Peninsula participated in a two-day camp in Weipa last week to prepare them for an exciting stage of their football careers. Under the guidance of North Queensland Toyota Cowboys development manager Dean Payne, Cowboys under-20 forward Chris Grevsmuhl, Weipa-based QRL development officer Cameron Miller and Cairns-based ARL development officer Robbie Moore, the group of 65 11-year-olds hail from a range of towns and communities on the Cape. They are bidding to become representative players for the first time in the Peninsula under-12 team which will contest next

year’s Queensland titles. The two-day camp, which included coaching clinics and matches, is part of a sweep through the Cape, made possible by the support of the Department of Sport and Recreation, and by the development team which also includes Northern Pride’s Chey Bird and Frances Mosby. The development camp crew started off in Cairns on Monday, and also visited schools in Coen and Lockhart River before arriving in Weipa. On Sunday, the tour stopped off in Mapoon before finishing in Aurukun on Monday. “We’ve already seen a number of young talented footballers along the way and I’m sure there’ll be more to come,” Payne said.

“Just as importantly, the tour is a chance for youngsters who may have an interest in rugby league, but haven’t become fully involved in the sport as yet, to have some fun in the clinics and see if they’d like to take up the game. “Over the course of the trip, we’ve come into contact with hundreds of kids who love rugby league which makes it very enjoyable for all involved.” Weipa QRL development officer, Cameron “Spilla” Miller, said the kids had all behaved really well and had enjoyed the camp. “It was great to see so many kids participating and learning new rugby league skills. I am very grateful to the development team for giving Cape York kids such a fantastic opportunity.”

Squash semi-final games entertain

SEMI-FINALS of the Weipa Squash Club fixtures were played this week with Jackie Chan going straight into the A grade grand final, and Tony Jaa now having to challenge Bruce Lee in the preliminary finals next Tuesday. In B grade, Statham goes directly into grand final, with Vin Diesel vying against Chuck Norris for the grand final play off against Statham. This week in A grade it was déjà vu for two pairs, but with different results for the other two pairs when Jackie Chan and Tony Jaa commenced the semis as teams one and two respectively. A1 Dave Edward was in a different mind-set this week when he thrashed Rod Wawrzyniak in three games, even though there were a lot of strategically played shots and extensive court coverage (3-0). A2 Nick Brookes played Ross Hyytinen (sub) and despite losing the first game, Nick sent Ross running around the court from his central position, where he can reach to almost impossible lengths with his left-handed tactics, and both players hit fantastic boast shots to create good rallies, but Nick won the next three (3-1). A3 Paul Ellison (sub) replayed his game against Steve Lugsdin this week, but despite the same result, both players scored higher in their losing games than they did last week and demonstrated much agility, hitting difficult shots that came their way (3-1). A4 Ben Tantau could not repeat

his performance last week against Chrisden Russ, with Ben going down in three games, however it was entertaining to watch these two young “good sports” testing each other’s boundaries (3-0). Bruce Lee’s A1 Owen Witt had another evenly-matched but epic battle on his hands when he confronted Jet Li’s Lukas Dorsett. With only one point the difference Owen took the first game but then the second “long” game went to Lukas and so they alternated with Lukas proving victorious in the end as a result of many long shots being skillfully retrieved deep from the back wall, great rallies, sound shots, lobs, and backhanders (2-3). When A2 Glen Egan went head to head with Jeff Berry these two youngsters had a great match as they athletically maneuvered around the court but it appeared Jeff had an agenda and stuck to it (0-3). A3 Wendy Long persisted with dogged determination in this veteran’s game against Bill Nason when after winning the first game, Wendy went down in the next two, but bounced back to save face and steal the match (3-2). A4 Alex Dunn did a flip of his performance last week and found his form at the end of the season by surprising his opponent Jeff Ball by playing well and attacking the ball (3-0). B grade semi-finals happened on Thursday night with both teams faring well when Statham B2 Ben Tantau (sub) lost the first game to Norris’ Randall O’Neill,

but then patiently took the next three, by sneaky drop shots to the front wall and difficult lob shots to the back wall, (3-1). B3 Jacob Murray (sub) convincingly defeated Sally Parr in three games although Sally played her heart out against her young opponent (3-0). Ruth Harris (sub) improved as the games wore on however Nicole Dearling (sub) easily defeated her in three games particularly with the tricky back wall shots. Vin Diesel B1 Justin Hyytinen triumphed in this truly sporting game against Schwarzennegger’s Chris Bienvenu with many excellent rallies and pressure in the third game (3-0). B2 Mark Walters (sub) tried his hardest to beat Jemma Kennedy but she was too good showing her finesse and ploughing through to win the match and might I add that the score did not reflect the vigour with which this game was played (0-3). B3 Mark Walters was victorious in his own game against Kellie Creedon, even though Kellie almost came through in the third game which would have made things more interesting (3-0). B4 Esther Rutherford faced Kristie McManus but with Esther’s display of skill and wisdom, she showed that she still has “it” (3-0). Best of luck to all the qualifying teams competing in preliminary (which have been played at time of print) and grand finals on Friday night! Yours squashfully, Ruth Harris

LOCAL youngster, 11 year-old Caleb Hansen caught his PB fish, a Pacific Sailfish, while on a fishing trip with his dad, Richard, and n e i g h b o u r M a rc u s Payne. Caleb had to take a nap to relive his best dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fishing so far thanks to Marcus. Caleb will probably be a contender for the BillďŹ sh weekend, lets hope so. If you can get out and do a bit practice for that weekend there are some of the best schools of Spanish Mackerel and Long Tail Tuna seen in these parts for a very long time. You can either ďŹ&#x201A;oat out a Pilly or test your arm on some slugs, and there has been some great success using a Halco 190mm Laser Pro Pilly pattern D/D. The Tuna are also taking the lures and slugs

but some of the lads are braining them on 2-3 inch Atomic Paddle Tail soft plastics. Fingermark fishing is starting to hot up and that small window of great weather last week saw some good catches taken down around 9 Mile and the odd Nannygai and Red Emperor graced the ice box for all to see. Tusk Fish are still being taken out around Duyfken if you want to try your luck. Prawns are proving the best bait, but you had better hold on as the Tuskies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mucking about. By the way, whoever left the large ShovelNosed Ray on the Rocky Point boat ramp, there is only one word for you, DH. Not only was there no reason to kill the poor thing, it is the best way to entice a big lizard to

come ashore - hope you are proud of yourself. On a lighter note Bream seem to be hanging around a bit longer than last year as I remember. They are feeding on the small Prawn spawn, so I hope it means there is some good rain coming. I saw some big Threadies, metre-plus, from the Mission River bridge the other morning with their radar out in front. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they were looking for but it was quite interesting to watch. There are plenty of Queenfish for landbased anglers about 30 metres out from the boat ramp at Evans Landing. Alternate using Poppers and Blades to keep them interested.

WEIPA marathon runner, Bianca Graham flew to Sydney on Monday to join Rob de Castella and the rest of the Indigenous Marathon team, departing for New York today to compete in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest marathon this weekend. The Indigenous Marathon team consists of seven men and four women, and the girls will be making history as the first ever Indigenous Australian womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team to participate in the 42.2 kilometre event on Sunday. The streets of Manhattan Island will be swamped with over

2.5 million spectators cheering Bianca and the team, along with 47,000 other runners. Biancaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, John and Chana, are joining the team in the Big Apple for the race and Bianca is looking forward to sharing her special moment with her family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mum and dad have grandstand seats at the finish line and they will be able to track my progress throughout the race on their mobile phones,â&#x20AC;? a very excited Bianca said last Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be wonderful to see them and I am so pleased they will be there to share this historical event with me, and the rest of the team.â&#x20AC;?

Six months ago Bianca didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about the marathon and could hardly run three kilometres, but thanks to the Indigenous Marathon Project she is now a part of the team to compete in the New York Marathon, which will be watched by an estimated 315 million television viewers around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly improving my running ability has been a great achievement but the fact that I am one of the first Indigenous Aussie women to compete in the race is something for me and my whole family to be proud of,â&#x20AC;? Bianca said. UU continued page 20
