Trunding Creek croc spotted

This crocodile was spotted on the western bank of Trunding Creek on Saturday morning by Western Cape Bulletin reader David Robinson. By Giembra Busmer

FOLLOWING last week’s story regarding the recent fatal crocodile attack on a 14-month old dog at Trunding Creek, Western Cape Bulletin reader, David Robinson sent the photo above to our office. David said the picture was taken on Saturday morning, June 16, 2012 at 11.30am at the mouth of Trund-

ing Creek, about 100 metres from the Albatross Hotel. He estimated the crocodile to be between 2.6 and 2.9 metres in length. Trunding Creek has come under the spotlight since fisherman Todd Bairstow was attacked by a crocodile while fishing on the banks of the creek in March 2011. A three-metre estuarine crocodile

was removed from the creek following the attack, however it appears another has taken up residence in what appears to be prime croc real estate. In December last year quad riders were given a nasty surprise when they road out of the bush towards the creek to be greeted by a large crocodile.

The Western Cape Bulletin has also received several reports of “near misses” with dogs who venture too close to the creek’s edge (see page 2 - we would like to advise that the photo on page 2 is graphic). A new crocodile warning sign was erected on the western bank of Trunding Creek this week.

Visitors and locals are reminded to avoid areas where large crocodiles or their nests have been seen and to keep well back from the water’s edge. Crocodile incidents should be reported to the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service hotline on 1300 130 372 or Weipa Police on 4090 6000.

This dog had a lucky escape following a recent altercation with a crocodile at Trunding Creek.

A WESTERN Cape Bulletin reader sent us the photo at left of his dog who, luckily, survived the injuries she sustained from a crocodile attack at Trunding Creek recently. The reader said his two dogs took a stroll to the mouth of the creek when the attack occurred. Witnesses said one of the dogs managed to avoid the croc by jumping over its mouth, however the other one was not so lucky, the croc inflicting a large gash on her side. The injured dog made it half-way home before collapsing on the side of the road and the owner was notified. After receiving three staples and three stitches to the eight-inch gash in her side the dog made a full recovery.

E I G H T s c h o o l s a ro u n d Australia, including the Western Cape College, will benefit from a $4.1 million pilot program that helps A b o r i g i n a l a n d To r re s Strait Islander students stay in school and go on to rewarding careers in their local communities. Minister for School Education Peter Garrett this week announced the first round of schools to take part in the Indigenous Rangers Cadetship (IRC) pilot, part of the Building Australia’s Future Workforce strategy. “I’ve been very keen to see this happen, as Indigenous Ranger Cadetships are about giving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from regional and remote communities the skills they need to become rangers in their local area,” Mr Garrett said. “This heralds an exciting new era in providing students with the opportunity to work on country, as rangers and in associated roles in natural resource management. “I have seen firsthand the good work being done by Indigenous Rangers across their land and sea country, in

and in a role that benefits both themselves and their community,” Mr Garrett said. “The Indigenous Rangers are set to play a pivotal role in natural resource management, with the cadetships offering a huge opportunity to start students on this path whilst still at school.” The first eight pilot schools will begin the pilot program in term three of 2012, with further schools to commence in the 2013 school year.

Monitoring Gulf Spanish Mackerel By Giembra Busmer

FOR the past six years Fisheries Queensland (now part of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) has been present at the Weipa Fishing Classic collecting data on Spanish Mackerel, and this year was no different. Fisheries Queensland has developed tools to monitor fish stocks including biological monitoring, fisheries observers and commercial fisher log books. The monitoring data generated is then used to assess the fishery. Spanish Mackerel in the Gulf of Carpentaria are monitored from south of the 120 line running through Mapoon to the Northern Territory border. Fisheries technician, Luke Pavich, said the Weipa Fishing Classic offered a valuable opportunity to collect data on the species. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fantastic opportunity for us and we value the co-operation of the Weipa Fishing Classic and the fishers who bring fish to us throughout the event,â&#x20AC;? Mr Pavich said. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Classic yielded more Spanish Mackerel than the previous two years, with 14 fish (eight female, three male and three unknown) going under the knife for biological monitoring. Biological monitoring focuses on collecting length, sex and age data from commercial and recreational catches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We collect the otolith or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ear boneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from the fish at the Classic and preserve it to be examined at a later date,â&#x20AC;? Mr Pavich said. Much like counting growth rings in trees, the age of many fish (including Spanish Mackerel) can be estimated by examining its otolith under a microscope. As the fish gets older, calcium carbonate builds up on the otolith. Seasonal variations in fish growth cause changes in the density of the calcium carbonate deposits, displaying an annual

pattern of bands from which an estimate of age is attained. Spanish Mackerel in the Gulf of Carpentaria are a different genetic stock to that sampled on the east coast of Queensland. In 2007 Fisheries Queensland expanded the biological monitoring of Spanish Mackerel to include the Gulf fishery. During the 2011 evaluation of the stock status of Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fisheries resources, Gulf Spanish Mackerel was assessed as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;uncertainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The time-series of length and age data collected by the program will improve the certainty in the sustainability of the fishery. These data are currently being used for the 2012 assessment. The cooperation of recreational and commercial fishers and charter operators enables fisheries monitoring programs to work and have quality data available for the assessment of the fisheries. In addition to fishing tournaments, recreational catches are sampled through boat ramp surveys, charter operators, and frames donated by anglers in the Keen Angler Program. Mr Pavich said fishers who wanted to donate their Spanish Mackerel frames for research could do so any time by phoning 0408 750 145. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a casual in Weipa who will collect the frames,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can remove fillets from the fish, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best if the gonads are left in tact.â&#x20AC;?

The Coen Certificate in Tourism graduates are looking forward to building their own tourism-based businesses in the Coen area.

ON Friday June 8, 12 proud Indigenous job seekers from Coen, celebrated their graduation from a nationally accredited Certificatelevel course in tourism offered by Jobfind Centres Australia. Funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Queensland Government Department of Education, Training and Employment under the Productivity Places Program, the five week-course was delivered by Jobfind in partnership with local tourism training specialists, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pathways to the Futureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a representative of the Career Training Institute of Australia (CTIA). Jobfind Centres Australia delivers a range of employment and training programs in Coen, including both the Australian Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Job Services Australia (JSA) and Community Development Employment Projects (CDEP). Staff and participants from across these programs within Jobfind came together to ensure the success of this training initiative and to increase the outcomes available to the Coen community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all road traffic to Weipa and the Northern Peninsula Area driving

through Coen, our Indigenous community has become quite a tourism gatewayâ&#x20AC;?, said Marty Chambers, manager of Jobfind CDEP in Coen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To take advantage of this traffic and increase the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism potential and employment opportunities, Jobfind has partnered with local Aboriginal corporation, Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who run the local Homestead Guest House in Coen.â&#x20AC;? The completion of the course now also paves the way for graduates to look ahead and build their own tourism-based businesses in the Coen area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The course has created a real air of excitement in Coenâ&#x20AC;?, said Ross Furnari, area manager for Jobfindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cape York Job Services Australia operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fantastic to see the great deal of support these course participants have received from right across the whole community. Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very eager to see what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll achieve with their newly-acquired tourism business skills.â&#x20AC;? Business development manager for Balkanu, Greg Bowman, attended the graduation and said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to see an enthusiastic group of young Indigenous Australians graduate with their certificates in tourism.â&#x20AC;?

POLICE were called to an EPIRB activation in Weipa at about 10.45am Tuesday, June 12. Two people on board a six-mere Hooker dinghy had been drifting off shore near the Skardon River, north of Weipa for about one hour due to engine failure. Weipa Police commenced a search and rescue and located the vessel and occupants at about 12.10pm in good condition and towed them back to the Weipa boat ramp. The vessel was fully kitted with all safety equipment on board, along with ample food and water. With the current good weather conditions, ‘boaties’ are reminded to ensure their vessels are properly serviced, they have ample supplies, all safety equipment including current 406 EPIRB on board, as well as registering their plans with local authorities.

ON behalf of the 2012 Weipa Fishing Classic Committee, I would like to thank and congratulate everyone that was involved in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. To all of our sponsors who generously donated prizes, funds or in-kind support, the event would not be the success it is without you and we sincerely appreciate your support. Hopefully you will all be back again next year. Thanks to the Western Cape College for allowing us to use the grounds for the event. Your ongoing support for the event is very much appreciated. To all the community groups that assisted with the entertainment and setting-up for the event, thank you and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the funds provided for your assistance will help with the ongoing success of your community groups. To all the catering stall holders, thank you for providing food, drinks and novelties throughout the weekend. Hope-

Airport security upgrade THIS issue seems to cost us all to bring the airport up to the security standards of the rest of our nation, when we already pay for this facility due to the poor road conditions in our part of the world. Very concerned Weipa resident

Too far to walk I AM amazed by the number of people, many of them locals, who cannot walk the extra three car parking spaces to put their Woolworths trolley into the trolley-parking bay. Most of you have the energy to push the empty trolley as far as the crossing blocking it up so people in wheelchairs, mums with prams and pedestrians cannot negotiate their way through. I am appalled that you think that this is someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem and not yours. If you cannot be bothered with pushing the trolley the extra three bays to their parking station, maybe try leaving the trolley inside at the supermarket and carry the bags out yourself. Note the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;trolleyparking bayâ&#x20AC;?; this is for trolleys to park in, like a car-parking bay is for cars to park in. As we all know the businesses in town have enough trouble getting staff, so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not make them walk all over the place collecting the trolleys that you are too lazy to park in the correct area, and

fully your efforts were also financially rewarding. Thank you to all businesses who set up their stalls and displays. Hopefully the event was also rewarding for you and your businesses. Thanks to all the musicians that performed throughout the weekend. Your performances were all fantastic and certainly helped to make the event a success. To our MCs, Peter McCulkin, Scott Hillier and Dean Miller, thank you very much for keeping the crowds entertained throughout the event. Congratulations to all the prize winners over the weekend. allow them do what you want â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to man the registers and stack the shelves that you always complain are empty. So let us all try and be a bit more considerate of others when using the only shopping centre that we have in Weipa. Enjoy the relaxed lifestyle sure, but do your bit for the community. Stretch Noonan

Doing it tough AS we approach the end of the financial year I would like to remind everyone that June is our last chance to help those doing it tough at the moment, and also get a tax deduction for this financial year. Every local community has someone who is doing it tough every day. We invite you to support our Doing It Tough Appeal, which will raise much-needed funds so we can continue our everyday work providing vital services and programs for vulnerable people. Donations to Red Cross are currently 20 per cent lower than expected this financial year and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing a shortfall of almost $8 million in public funding for our day-to-day work. We are asking the Australian public to dig deep at this critical time. Red Cross needs your support, not just in times of disaster but throughout the year for our ongoing, everyday work with people and local communities

I would also like to personally thank the 2102 committee for their dedication and many months of commitment to make this event a success. Last but not least, I would like to thank everyone that participated in the event in any way throughout the weekend. Everyone that attended has helped us in reaching our goal of providing the community and visitors with an event that we can all be proud of and a great weekend for everyone to enjoy. Hopefully we will see you all again next year. Tom Murray, President, Weipa Fishing Classic right around Australia. When you make a tax-deductible gift to the Red Cross Doing It Tough Appeal before June 30 you can be confident your donation will make a real difference to someone near you. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serving breakfast to children who would otherwise go to school hungry, making sure elderly and frail Australians have regular visits or daily phone calls so they can continue to live independently, or helping young people or families who are at risk of homelessness, Red Cross is there. For more information about how to make a fully tax deductible donation by June 30 call 1800 811 700 or visit Kevin Keeffe Executive Director QLD Australian Red Cross

$OOWKHIXQRIWKH&DUQLYDO The Weipa 2011 NAIDOC celebrations were well attended and organisers are looking forward to even bigger events this year.

NATIONAL acts Last Kinection and Reggage Bliss are confirmed to perform at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NAIDOC celebrations alongside local dancers from Mapoon, Weipa, and Napranum. Planning for this year â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NAIDOC week celebrations is full steam ahead, with events being held in the first week of July in Napranum, Mapoon, and Weipa. NAIDOC week committee member, Bettina Rosser, said the success from last year has motivated them to make the celebrations even bigger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are really showcasing our local talent, in the way of visual arts, music, dance and culture, during the week long celebrations,â&#x20AC;? Bettina said. The Western Cape NAIDOC celebrations will run from Sunday 1 July through to Friday 6 July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The week will kick off on Sunday with an opening ceremony in Napranum, and the re-enactment of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Coming of the Lightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? Bettina said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The celebrations will continue on Monday with a float procession and arts and crafts stalls, kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, and live entertainment. On Wednesday, the celebrations move to Mapoon where local indigenous and non-indigenous artists will showcase their work and games for all to play.â&#x20AC;? In keeping line with national NADOIC theme - Spirit of The Tent Embassy 40 Years on - the Western Cape Communities Trust is hosting an Elders Luncheon where they will be honoured for their achievements. The young people will celebrate with the 2012 Youth NAIDOC Ball on Thursday held at the Heritage Resort. The celebrations then conclude in Weipa, with a closing ceremony held at the Western Cape College grounds. National acts Last Kinection and Reggage Bliss will perform at the closing ceremony. There will also be performances from local band, Rising Tide, solo artist Norah Bagiri and guest

performance by the Night Owls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dancing was a big hit at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing ceremony and we are fortunate to have it again with local dancing groups from all three communities,â&#x20AC;? Bettina said. NAIDOC committee member, Bianca Graham, said the committee have worked hard to ensure all ages are catered for during NAIDOC week. All events are free to attend and everyone is invited and encouraged to come along. Full times and venues for NAIDOC week are still to come. The NAIDOC committee is made up of representatives from Department of Communities, Rio Tinto Alcan Weipa, Western Cape College, Napranum PCYC, and Napranum and Mapoon Shire Councils.

IT has been a busy schedule for the newly elected Weipa Town Authority, with a very quick introduction to the annual budget processes as we map the year ahead. Clearly resolving funding for the kerb and channelling for the residents in the older Courts on the eastern side of Rocky Point is a priority for us; and be rest assured that we have highlighted the issue as ‘critical’ in this year’s Capital Expenditure planning with RTA. We are hopeful that RTA accepts the critical nature of this project from a health and safety perspective and the planning can allow for completion of all the kerb and channelling upgrades over the next three years. The total project amounts to over $8.5 million of investment. A recent meeting in Brisbane with the Minister for Local Government David Crisafulli has clarified the new LNP government’s position with the Weipa Governance Project commenced during the last WTA term. The process will continue as a tri-partied arrangement between RTA, WTA and Department of Local Government with not only the first meeting under a new ‘regimes’, but what I believe could be a seminal meeting of the partners set down for mid-July. Our plan is to keep the community very well informed on progress. The WTA will now be regularly briefed on the new housing plans for Weipa, with Golf Links Estate Two sub-division now well advanced, and more planning being undertaken for the proposed Duyfken sub-division opposite the Albatross Resort. While cognisant of their own needs, RTA also understands that these two developments offer significant opportunity for investment into the new house market in either detached or town house dwellings. There will be no construction of dwellings until water upgrades have been completed; in-line with the previous WTA’s caveat for the relevant developments. The housing construction over the next five to six years will be spectacular, with indications of anything between 500-600 dwellings to be constructed. That is nearly a 50 per cent increase of the current stock. This level of activity

will surely be the envy of other regional centres; but importantly, the WTA is clear that it should not impact on current prices and that more affordable housing options be included. During the recent trip to Brisbane, we also met with Minister for Fisheries John McVeigh and his senior staff, and took the opportunity to introduce the Minister to the Chamber of Commerce’s “Strategic Plan for Growing Sport Fishing Tourism on the Western Cape” which was released in 2011. This is an ambitious plan that requires the strong support of the government. Sadly that support was not evident from the previous government, with only ‘lip service’ to the key priorities. The Minister has given us an undertaking to take a closer look at the lingering issues that exist of the conflicting management of Albatross Bay, as well as the annual permitting of a developmental fishery for deep water fish trawling in our offshore waters. For the WTA the permitting of a fishery that allows for a by-catch each year of nearly 300 tonnes of Trevally (species), the trawling for large aggregations of Mangrove Jack, Fingermark and Nannygai is not only not sustainable, but is significantly damaging our local recreational sport-fishing fishery. On the subject of fishing - Tom Murray, president of the Weipa Fishing Classic and his team take a bow. What another great event, made even better by bringing the boys from Creek to Coast to town. The Weipa show goes to air on September 1, 2012. Congratulations also to Aaron Johnson, Laurie Raleigh and Steve Lugsdin for their organisation of the inaugural “Weipa Eight a Side” cricket competition that started Saturday, incorporating a Sri Lankan international side from Scherger. What a great atmosphere, with the Sri Lankan cheer squad, complete with drums and whistles, bringing their team home by four runs. Little wonder it is their national sport! The competition throughout the day was tight and will continue this Saturday with the first game at 11.00 am featuring the international Scherger side.

AFTER all the questions that were put to Jesus to trap him (some quite silly really), by the Jewish spiritual leaders, he had a question of his own to ask them, a question centred on their understanding of the Messiah. He asked, “How can the teachers of the Law say that the Messiah will be the descendant of David? The Holy Spirit inspired David to say: ‘The Lord said to my

Lord: Sit here on my right-hand side until I put your enemies under your feet.’ “David himself called him ‘Lord’; so how can the Messiah be David’s descendant?” Jesus was reminding them of Psalms 110, a song of David given under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit about the Messiah, and where David being king called his own descendant “Lord. ” This question really puzzled the Jewish lead-

ers because they saw the promised coming Messiah as an earthly political figure, and that’s all. Jesus question laid bare the fact that the Messiah must also be divine, because David called him “Lord”. The gospel of Matthew reports that no one could give him an answer and from that day on no one dared ask him any more questions. (Matt Ch 22 v 46). Jesus is Lord. – Rev Michael Connolly


Using the cane toad’s poison against itself AN effective new weapon in the fight against the spread of cane toads (Rhinella marina) has been developed by the University of Sydney, in collaboration with the University of Queensland. “This is the first powerful tool we have created to control cane toads,” said Professor Rick Shine, from the University’s School of Biological Sciences and the lead author of the study which is published in the Proceedings of Royal Society B on 13 June. The new research shows that the same powerful poisons cane toads use to devastate native species can be used as a weapon against the toads themselves – by using the poison as ‘bait’ in traps set in waterbodies to catch toad tadpoles. “A chemical ‘bait’ created from the toads’ poison is a real magnet for toad tadpoles,” Professor Shine said. The biggest obstacle to getting rid of cane toads is that a single clutch (the amount of eggs laid at a time by one female) can contain more than 30,000 eggs. “This means that even if you catch and kill 99 percent of the adult toads in an area, the few that are left can produce so many offspring that before you know it you are back to where you started – just as many cane toads as ever,” Professor Shine said. The only way around the problem is to stop the toads from reproducing, Professor Shine explains.

Thinking of moving?

Think A&R... The study discovered the secretion from the shoulder (parotoid) glands of dead toads can be used as bait. It is cheap, easy to obtain andd highly hi hl attractive i to toad d tadpoles - but repels the tadpoles of native frogs. “This is perfect to use in funnel-traps in ponds to catch toad tadpoles. Other native fauna such as fishes and insects aren’t attracted to this chemical but toad tadpoles are incredibly good at detecting it, and they search for its source as soon as they encounter it,” Professor Shine said. “When we use this chemical as bait in a funnel-trap we catch thousands of toad tadpoles and almost nothing else. In one natural pond, we collected more than 40,000 toad tadpoles in less than a week. And I think we got them all - over the next few weeks, not a single toad emerged from that pond.” The researchers hope to train people from local ‘toad-busting’ community groups in the proper methods of collection. Until then, even a dead toad inside a funnel- trap can serve as an effective ‘bait’ for toad tadpoles, without

Accredited Removalists PACKING • BUSINESS & OFFICE RELOCATIONS • CAR TRANSPORT FREE FORMAL QUOTES • SECURE STORAGE • PET TRANSPORT requiring any risky squeezing of poison glands. i l d The toad’s poison is very dangerous to humans as well as many native species (and pet dogs, etc) so collecting it must be done very carefully, and by someone who has been trained in the right methods; and is wearing suitable protective equipment. “In continuing work with our collaborators at the University of Queensland we are developing an even stronger, safer, and easier-touse bait,” Professor Shine said. “To do this, we will isolate the active agent in the toads’ secretion, and use it in pure form without all of the associated poisons.” Cane toads are spreading through tropical Australia with a devastating impact on native species. Predators that try to eat toads are killed by the invader’s powerful poisons; in some local populations of crocodiles, goannas and quolls, more than 95 per cent.

comment on the draft national strategy over a four week period starting on June 18 and ending July 16.” Mr March said targeted consultation had already started through presentations at regional events in North Queensland and field inspections in the Atherton Tablelands, east Kimberley of Western Australia and Bachelor and Darwin areas of the Northern Territory. “I will also be talking with pastoral industry organisations, local government and community groups in affected areas such as Cape York, to seek their comments on the strategy,” he said. The draft strategy and feedback form are available at WoNS/gambagrass/ Full consideration of consultation feedback will be undertaken and the strategic plan will be finalised for submission to the Australian Weeds Committee in September 2012.

Jobs and stronger communities for people in remote Australia Invitation to Information and Consultation Sessions The new Remote Jobs and Communities Program will provide a simpler, more integrated and flexible approach to employment services and participation in remote areas of Australia from 1 July 2013. The program will assist people to get the skills needed to find and keep a job and help build stronger communities. The Australian Government has already talked to a lot of people and organisations about these changes and the new service responds to the needs of people living in remote areas. Information and consultation sessions will be held in regional centres and remote communities across Australia from late May to mid-July 2012. Come and find out how the changes will benefit you, your organisation or your community. You can also talk to the Government about how the new service should operate in your area. B11_0734

BIOSECURITY Queensland is encouraging the community to have its say on the draft national management strategy for the invasive pest gamba grass. Gamba grass was declared as one of 12 new Weeds of National Significance (WoNS) due to its economic, environmental and social impacts as well as its potential to spread. Chief Biosecurity Officer Dr Jim Thompson said Queensland was managing the nationallycoordinated strategy for this weed which aimed to restrict its spread and reduce the impact of current infestations. “Gamba grass is a highly invasive weed with infestations in Cape York, coastal North

Gamba grass management strategy – have your say Queensland and other areas of tropical savanna of northern Australia,” Dr Thompson said. “While gamba grass can be a useful cattle feed in Far North Queensland, its invasive nature has allowed infestations to spread extensively across various landscapes. “These infestations increase fire intensity up to eight-fold, threatening people and property and causing a decline in the diversity and abundance of native wildlife.” Following a recent national workshop involving 21 representatives from across northern Australia, the draft national strategy was developed by the gamba grass national coordinator, Nathan March, from Biosecurity Queensland. “The national strategy development workshop, identified a range of actions to reduce gamba grass impacts and the threat of invasion,” Mr March said. “The workshop also identified more than 20 research priorities to improve gamba grass management, which are now reflected in the draft strategy. “We will be seeking public

SCOOP The Newshound Sniffing out the stories about our four-legged friends... I HOPE all my K9 buddies and their humans are taking note of the crocodile warning stories my mum’s been putting in the paper lately. Seems there’s a big croc has taken up residence in the Trunding Creek and it’s not opposed to grabbing K9s silly enough to get near the edge of the water. My mum and dad have started taking me and my K9 mum Crispy to the Lakes for a walk in the morning, which we are really enjoying, and so far we haven’t had to deal with any reptiles intent on eating us for breakfast. I know it’s not as much fun, but I reckon it’s safer to stay on a lead when you go for a walk with your humans. WHAT is it about cat food that tastes so good? As I’ve mentioned before I am forced to live with felines and I’ve got to admit they do have their advantages. For one thing, they never eat all their meal which means Crispy and I get to clean up their leftovers, and they sure are tasty! Although Crispy and I understand we have to be nice to the cats (for some reason our humans seem to really like them) they can still provide us with some fun. For instance, they never fail to hiss and spit when you bail them up in the bathroom. Having learnt the hard way not to get too close to their claws I always keep my distance, but it’s still a few moments entertainment. The toys my humans buy for the cats are also pretty good. They put the feline’s toys in this strange carpeted cubby-house, which is supposed to be just for the cats, but as soon as the latest furry mouse hits the floor Crispy and I reckon it’s fair game! IF you are trying to choose whether to get a dog or a cat as a pet, here are some suggestions that might make your decision easier: If you want someone who will... Do anything to please you, get a dog. Bring you the newspaper without tearing through it first for the sports page, get a dog. Make a total fool of himself because he’s so glad to see you, get a dog. Eat whatever you put in front of him, get a dog. Always be eager to go out at any time you ask, get a dog. If you want someone who can scare away burglars without waving a lethal weapon around, endangering you and all the neighbors, get a dog. Never touch the remote, couldn’t care less about Monday Night Football, and watches dramatic movies with you as long as you want, get a dog. Be content just to snuggle up and keep you warm in bed, and who you can kick out of bed if he slobbers and snores, get a dog. Never criticise anything you do, doesn’t care how good or bad you look, acts as though every word you say is worth hearing, never complains, and loves you unconditionally all the time, Get a DOG! On the other hand... If you want someone who: Never comes when you call him, totally ignores you when you walk in the room, leaves hair all over the place, walks all over you, prowls around all night and comes home only to eat and sleep all day, and acts as though you are there only to see that HE’s happy... Get a CAT! (Don’t tell anyone...but I love cuddling up with the black cat, Yoda, when my humans are watching TV.)

Good Life with Jeany Schall

The value of energy drinks NEED energy? Certainly not from this mob!

Some energy drinks are now claiming to be healthy, but all I can say is read your labels, check the ingredients and be aware of what you’re putting in your mouth. Very few energy drinks have many health benefits. You will get an initial rush, but that will be followed by an intense low and a craving for another hit. They are addictive and a scary fact is, that children are drinking these too. So why should you consider staying away from these chemically filled “energy drinks”? Firstly, you’re health is endan-

gered by caffeine overdose and addiction. The average energy drink contains nearly four times the amount of caffeine found in commercial soft drink, and several of the more popular brands contain the caffeine equivalent of 14 colas. Some energy drinks will give you the equivalent of about three and a half cups of coffee. Secondly, they contain sugar and artificial colours flavours and sweeteners. One can of energy drink contains the equivalent of nearly 10 teaspoons of sugar, and they are often filled with many chemicals including artificial sweeteners, flavours and colours. Straight from the laboratory into your precious body. I could list another three or four other reasons why neither you, or anyone in your family, will benefit from drinking energy drinks but I would prefer you did your own research and made your own decision. I won’t be drinking them, I would rather water any day, or some super nutrient-laden energy drinks such as these:

Earth energy drink Ingredients: 4 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup or agave syrup 1/4 teaspoon of salt (Himalayan salt has a lot more minerals and nutrients than table salt) 1/4 cup boiling water 3/4 cup water 1/4 cup of orange juice (use a hand citrus or electric juicer) 1/2 of a lemon juiced Combine all ingredients in a pitcher/jug and store in the fridge to chill.

Fruit boost smoothie Ingredients: 1 banana 1 kiwi fruit or a handful of blueberries ½ cup of milk of choice/green tea/ coconut water Honey to taste ½ cup of natural unsweetened yoghurt 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed/almond or both Blend all ingredients until smooth, drink straight away.

Chocolate peanut butter smoothie Ingredients: 1 cup milk, preferably raw/organic, or more to taste ¼ -1/2 cup Greek yoghurt (optional) 2 large bananas, preferably organic, previously cut into chunks and frozen 1-2 tablespoons organic peanut butter 1-2 organic egg whites 1-2 tablespoon raw chocolate powder or organic cocoa powder ice cubes or water (optional) Blend all ingredients – yum!


The Weipa Basketball clinic Photos by: Tracey Jia and Terri Page

Basketball set to boom in Weipa ON Saturday, June 16 Western Cape Basketball held its inaugural basketball clinic at the Western Cape College WISH centre. Former Townsville Crocs assistant coach and Australian junior team selector Shane Froling, assisted by former State under-20 menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant coach Gordon Fawcett and former Opals assistant coach Terri Page, put a number of young up-and-coming players through their paces. Both Froling and Fawcett commented on the level of participation and athleticism shown by these novice players. The clinic was followed by lunch and some organised games involving a number of interested people who showed up to test their talents against the former NBL player Froling. The day concluded with all

participants stating what a great day they had and a number of people putting their hand up to be involved in getting a competition up and running, so stay tuned. One young participant was heard to say â&#x20AC;?We should do this every Saturdayâ&#x20AC;?. We would like to thank the Albatross Bay Resort and the Weipa Bowls Club for their financial support in bringing the coaches to Weipa and the Western Cape College for the use of the facilities. Being able to run the clinic and games indoors on a great basketball court added to the experience. Thank you also to Jay Murray and the Weipa Sports Association, for assisting with the administration and to Tracey Jia, Terri Page and Ben Dare for organising the day. Finally all those people who turned up and helped out on the day, your efforts were truly appreciated.

SUDOKU No. 103

Your Lucky ARIES (March 21st - April 20th) You may expect a phone call that never comes. Try not to be too disappointed: the person concerned will eventually contact you, but in a different way than you were expecting. Romance. Don’t worry if a recent decision by your partner seems hard to understand at first. They have a good reason and it will eventually benefit you both.

TAURUS (April 21st - May 21st) An idea which you have will save you a great deal of time and energy. In the meantime however, it will require an investment of time. It may be a while before you see all the advantages. Romance. You may have to show your feelings more directly than you have up to now. Speak up: if you are too subtle, you will not be noticed.

GEMINI (May 22nd - June 21st)


A recent financial deal will put you in a much better position than you expected. Be careful not to waste your windfall. Investing in a “sure thing” may not be a good idea. Romance. A romantic advance which you make may be more welcome than you expected. Your recent reservations about romance may be unfounded.

CANCER (June 22nd - July 23rd) Don’t overreact. You will be surprised how forceful you can be if you are annoyed. Count to ten and try to see the situation from the other person’s eyes. Romance. This should be the start of a very fruitful period, both for you and for your partner. Enjoy your time together!

LEO (July 24th - August 23rd) You may start to feel burned out from working too hard. This will be an excellent week to take a break: be sure to go somewhere where you have a chance to relax. Romance. A present for your partner would be a good way to thank them for their recent support. They will appreciate something small but thoughtful.

VIRGO (August 24th - September 23rd) You are not a gullible person. Nevertheless, you may have allowed yourself to be taken in by someone whom you should have known not to trust. Next time, be more on your guard. Romance. A person whom you know through work may be behaving a little strangely. Use your intuition to figure out what is going on. The answer may be a little deeper beneath the surface.


LIBRA (September 24th - October 23rd) The Moon/Mercury Midpoint moving through your sign should help your powers of intuition. You will need these shortly to make an important decision. Romance. Don’t allow a temporary lack of company to get you down. Enjoy the company of your friends: it may remind you of what you have been missing recently.

SCORPIO (October 24th - November 22nd) A meeting with friends will be rewarding. Try not to spend the time complaining about your partner. A positive outlook will allow someone to notice you. Romance. A misunderstanding could create problems later in the day. Be careful with your words and make sure that you don’t rely on a message which may be inaccurate.

For all your printing needs –


SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd - December 21st) This is not the best time to get into a dispute. Try to stay away from areas which you know might cause an argument. Your skills as a peacemaker will be needed this week. Romance. This would be a good day to take stock of how things have gone over the past few weeks. Try to look objectively and don’t be blinded by your emotions.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd - January 20th) Advice from a colleague may not be welcome. They do not know as much about the subject as you do but may be trying to make themselves look better. Romance. You may be expecting a little too much from your partner. You may need to be more realistic, at least for the time being. A small, caring gesture will be reciprocated.

AQUARIUS (January 21st - February 19th)


Courage is grace under pressure. – Ernest Hemingway


You may be a little impractical this week. Don’t spend too much time trying to do something which is unlikely to succeed. Keep your attention focused on your main task. Romance. The Moon/Pluto Midpoint moving through your sign will make your emotions much more powerful than they have been for some time.

PISCES (February 20th - March 20th) Someone that you met recently through a local social club could become a close friend. You have a lot in common with this person than it will appear at first. Romance. You will need to be ruthlessly honest this week. Although someone may be hurt initially, your friends will see you in a much more positive light if you tell them the whole story.

2012 Western Cape Bulletin Footy Tipping Competitions

Spilla's Spin... on rugby league

Gotta love bush footy The FNQ Remote Challenge was held in Cairns on the weekend with three teams competing. Three Rivers, was represented by Cooktown, Hopevale and Wujal Wujal; Southern Cape by Kowanyama, Pormpuraaw, Coen, Lockhart River and Aurkun, while Central Cape was represented by Mapoon, Weipa and Napranum. There was some very entertaining bush footy playe,d with every game being decided in the final few minutes in each game. I felt very proud to be associated with these entertainers of our game as they showed some great gamesmanship out on the field, and represented their communities with pride. I’m very confident the Cape York team will be a force over the highly-fancied Queensland Outback team when they get into a war in Mt Isa in the near future. Round 15 has been a tipster’s nightmare as there have been some really interesting results. The mighty Cowboys lassooed the scoreless Broncos, while the Bulldogs put some bite into the Dragons with no puff.

The Sharks won a thriller over the Warriors, while the Eels’ season is going from bad to worse as they copped another footballing lesson from the Rabbits. The Titans overpowered the Panthers, while the Roosters put a end to the Tigers winning streak. The Big battle between the Storm and Sea Eagles lived up to the hype with the Storm snatching the win 30 seconds from fulltime. How devastating was it to lose to NSW in State of Origin two in Sydney on Wednesday night? I’m still hurting. I must say, they did deserve to win, but I’m very confident the Maroons will be buoyed by a record crowd in Brisbane and will come away with yet another series win...QUEENSLANDER! This weekend will see the Central Cape juniors Under 11 side to travel to Townsville to compete in the Laurie Spina Shield. This carnival is the most prestigious in Australia, with a record 64 teams being involved. I’m so excited for our young generation to be playing, and I’m sure they’ll represent with great honour and pride.

Scotty’s AFL round-up SO, it all went a bit pear-shaped last week. First of all the recovery process from the fishing comp festivities took a bit longer than expected, and for the start of the week I was about as smart as a box of hammers. Secondly, Management decided she had better slip into tune with the footy teams and enacted her version of the mid-year bye and took off to Melbourne, dragging The Deputy with her to negotiate the coffee and shoe shops. He was brave in the crisis though, the little fella. Fair dinkum, watching him walk out onto the tarmac and up the steps on Tuesday was like watching Oates make his sacrifice in Antarctica on the fateful day in 1912, when he walked out of the tent and left Scott and the others saying “I’m just going outside and I may be some time”. So I found myself left to hold onto dear life with Azrael quickly assuming her spot in the central command position, and The Princess as her co-conspirer. The others weren’t much use to me.

The Three Legged Houdini ran amuck for five days, during which I hardly saw her, as she spent most of her time either in the house next door or down at the oval watching the soccer. She eventually came home late on Saturday afternoon, when a good Samaritan dropped her off, after recovering her from the back streets of Rocky Point. The odds on the dog catcher have ballooned out to 20 to one. The Darstardly Fouls have gone off the lay and threaten to peck anything that comes within 10 metres of them (including Houdini, much to our amusement) and spent all their week trying to convert the back porch into a compost heap. As for Azrael, well I thought the Litter Quitter (the toilet training device for the cat) was a bit of a novelty at first, until I realised that the contraption actually stays on the toilet throughout the period of time that I need to use it. Now, as every bloke will understand its hard enough as it is to get your aim right, particularly late at night, and make sure you get things as close to the “noisy

It’s made even more difficult when the kitty litter means the area at which you must aim is reduced by at least two-thirds, and you have a cranky cat sitting behind you watching every move and casting knowing looks when you accidentally lose track of things. I think she has improved her subliminal communication with the others too, as when Management returned home she was straight onto the fact that a couple of the magazines were missing from the rack beside the loo. (There were only two witnesses to that incident, and one of them only has three legs and can’t talk!). I’m pleased however, to say that after five days we survived the ordeal. Unlike poor old Oates who froze to death in minus 40 degree temperatures, The Deputy survived the frosty weather in Melbourne and came back with a new haircut, some new gymnastic moves and an even lesser regard for his own personal well-being. The Princess and I developed a mutual respect for each other. I basically


respect the fact I have to do as I’m told. She respects me for coming to that conclusion. Management returned to a house full of love and dirty dishes, so I think she’s looking for another break next week. The short round was not too exciting in the footy except that both the new teams put on a good performance. Pleasing to see, and I liked the look of the Giants forward line with Patton and Cameron the new Lloyd and Lucas. The Crows and Saints was the pick of the games for me. The tipping is at full-tilt with the competition heating up. Keep up the great work guys. This week the sure things are The Bloods over the Pivitonians, The Dishlickers over the Gorillas, The Filth over the Sand Gropers, The Purple Circus over The Same Olds, The Fuschias over the New Kids on The Block, and The Fruit Tingles over the Road-Kill. See if you can make sense of all that and I’ll see you next week. Chat next week. Scotty

Weipa Squash Club finals fever

UU from page 24 The most outstanding game of this play-off was between Team Tallie’s A4 Amanda McKenzie and Team Pint’s Jimmy Baira, resulting in Amanda winning only one of the four fiercely contested games with three of them stretching to “long”, but it was Jimmy’s night despite lots of handouts (1-3). A3 Steve Lugsdin gave it all he had against Laurie Raleigh in this great match with the odd pirouette to reach those tricky shots but it was not enough (0-3). A2 Glen Egan was psyched out by Rod Beilby’s skill and tenacity which paid off (0-3). The other game which would have been one to watch had they not pre-played was A1 Ross Hyytinen who defeated Tom Murray (3-1) however, as Team Tallie only won four games, it was more drinking time on Friday night! In B grade, regretfully Teams Margarita and Long Island Iced Tea did not make the grade, but first and second placed teams were Teams Mojito and Blue Lagoon. When these two teams played for the winner to go through to the grand finals, it was Team Mojito who proved their might, winning 18 games against 11. Team Blue Lagoon’s B8 Renee Williams crushed Team Mojito’s Lucy Boxall (3-0), B7 Kristie McManus forced the first game to “long” against Adrian Costello but he won and from there, they alternated wins (2-3). B6 Luke Mann had an easier win than in previous matches against Kristie Moran (3-0), B5 Bianca Borg stole the first game off Ian Newsome but then Ian came reeling back (1-3). B4 Emma Thomas was constant on 5 points in each game against Fiona Newsome but was not good enough on

the night (0-3). B3 Tom Bellinger suffered defeat at the hands of Joe Buckley (0-3). B2 Stephen Borg played well but could not rally to the fore against Ben Braun (0-3). B1 Adam Woodhouse and Justin Hyytinen also alternated wins during the five-game match and was another nail-biter to watch with the middle game going to “long” (3-2). Third and fourth placed Teams Martini and Pina Colada played off to see who faced sudden death and who had the opportunity to proceed to the grand final and play Team Mojito, which resulted in Pina Colada being knocked out by only two games – close one! Team Martini’s B8 Charissa Hill played a challenging game against Jess Hall (as sub for Andrew Glen) with Jess taking the third game to “long”, however Charissa won overall (3-1). B7 Ruth Harris lost dismally against Cicely Baira who was in winning form (0-3). B6 Denica Russ (as sub for Emilly Jackson) and Katie Delfs (as sub for Aleisha O’Brien) was beaten in three (0-3). B5 Brooke Gwynne played a great match (as always) against Samantha O’Neill with the third game going “long” (3-1). B4 Omer Saaed played well and easily defeated Patrick Lightart (3-0). B2 Randall O’Neill played an excellent game full of long rallies, log shots, long games, and a unique segment where about a dozen sequential shots went down the right hand side wall, however Michael Cridland won the marathon match (2-3). B1 Cole Dalton and Josh Milne played until it was certain Josh’s team could not win but nonetheless, a great match to watch (1-2). A grade preliminary finals were hotly contested on

Tuesday night between Team Stubby and Team Pint, who both incredibly achieved 10 winning games each. And I might add that each match consisted of five games, resulting in a countback of points to decide who should go on to play Team Schooner on grand final night. Team Stubby’s A4 Ben Tantau played as though his life depended on it, but Jimmy Baira showed dogged determination throughout the five lengthy games as there were many handouts and won (3-2). A3 Chrisden Russ also played steadfastly, winning two of the five games against Laurie Raleigh but Laurie was hungry for a win (2-3). A2 Jeff Berry and Rod Beilby battled to the end of their five-game saga resulting in a one point win by Jeff (3-2). A1 Owen Witt led his team to victory against Tom Murray but not without much resistance (3-2). Team Blue Lagoon won over Team Martini in all threegame matches to proceed to the grand finals and meet their rivals Team Martini on Friday night. In B grade preliminary finals, Team Martini offered little opposition in the first four matches when B8 Charissa Hill sadly lost to

Renee Williams (0-3). B7 Yours Squashfully not surprisingly lost to Kristie McManus (however saved grace by scoring 10 points) (0-3). Denica Russ (as sub for B6 Emilly Jackson) was no match for Luke Mann (0-3), and B5 Brooke Gwynne unexpectedly went down easily to Bianca Borg (0-3). B4 Omer Saeed defeated Emma Thomas (3-0), B3 Sally Parr was then defeated resoundingly by Emma Thomas (as sub for Tom Bellinger) (0-3). B2 Ben Smith (as sub for Randall O’Neill) had stiff opposition from Stephen Borg in the first two games (second one going to “long”) but then nothing (3-0). B1 Cole Dalton rose above Justin Hyytinen’s game tactics in the first long game and then powered on to take the next two (3-0). Some very interesting results of many matches indicate to me that a lot of changes need to be made to gradings next season including myself as I am obviously out of my league! Stay tuned as next week I report on grand final night last Friday. Yours squashfully, Ruth Harris

Lady bowlers enjoy Di McNamara Shield ON Saturday, June 16, 14 lady bowlers gathered at the Weipa Bowls Club to participate in the Di McNamara Shield. Di has been the Lady Patroness for many years now, and every year sponsors the competition. As usual there was a great turnout and a terrific time was enjoyed by all who attended. Each pairs team played in a round-robin competition, with all teams playing each other once. Each game consisted of six ends. The day started at 9.30am in the morning and ended at about 4pm in the afternoon, with a half-hour break for a delicious lunch. There were some wonderful bowls played by all teams which was helped on by enthusiastic cheering from the crowd that gathered. The team with the most games wins were the winners for the day Beth and Norma, and the runners-up were Vicki and Lee-Anne. The shield was proudly presented by Di McNamara, who had also kindly donated prizes. Congratulations to the winners and to all the ladies who played. It was a great day. As is normal with any great bowls day, there are always incidences that happen that absolutely have to be reported. To avoid embarrassment I will leave out any names, however, all present on the day were shown

how to properly throw a tantrum; this is done by throwing down your bowls cloth onto the ground, with force, followed by your bowls hat. This was practiced by quite a few throughout the day. And we were also shown an alternate to dropping your dacks (as is the custom if you lose without scoring a point). This was practiced by nobody throughout the day. We are now at the nitty-gritty end of the season where all the top bowlers show why they are at the top. If you have never watched bowls before, get yourself down to the Weipa Bowls Club and watch some games. This is finals time where the better players get to show off their prowess. You will witness some magnificent bowling while sitting back with great company and a cold drink in your hand. And once you have watched a game and realise you want to be a part of it, join us for a social game on any Sunday (I promise you won’t have to drop your dacks). You need to have your name down by 9.30am so that bowling can start at 10am. For $10 you will have a great social day of bowls, a chance to win $50 in a lucky draw and a beautiful lunch. Why not give it a go? See you at Weipa Bowls Club – where they grab life by the bowls.

Keen juniors hit the golf course SUNDAY morning at the Carpentaria Golf course after last long weekend’s fishing was a bit tough, however we had about 22 keen juniors attend. The results are: A grade winner: Reece Singleton, runner-up: Taylor Francisco; B grade winner: Ned Brown, runnerup: Jordon Hohn; C grade winner: Max Newman, runner-up: Brandon Waratini; C3 grade winner: Rusty Newman, runner-up: Abaigh Gleeson. There will be no golf or training until after the school holidays, recommencing on the Sunday, July 15. Good luck to Steven Wust and Taylor Francisco who will be competing in the Peninsula golf in Toowoomba on July 14. Have a great school holiday break and keep practising. Don’t forget your hat, water bottles, sunscreen and parents, see you on the tee.

Cowboys’ pink jerseys to benefit charity THE North Queensland Toyota Cowboys will celebrate the NRL’s annual Women in League round by playing in eye-catching pink jerseys for the first time in a clash with the Canberra Raiders at Dairy Farmers Stadium on Saturday night. In a first for the club, the match-worn jerseys will then be auctioned online with all proceeds to be donated to Stillbirth Australia, a charity supported not only by the Cowboys but also by forward Glenn Hall who recently took part in the Dancing With The Townsville Stars competition to increase awareness of the Foundation’s work. Each North Queensland team member, including two-time Dally M Medal winner Johnathan Thurston and reigning Prop of the

Cowboys forward Glenn Hall launched the Stillbirth Australia charity auction in Townsville on Monday.

Year Matthew Scott, will sign the jersey they wore on Dairy Farmers Stadium and Cowboys members and supporters will be able to bid to have the jersey as their own. Hall, who launched the auction on Monday, said he hoped the concept would help raise thousands of dol-

lars for Stillbirth Australia. “This is a charity close to my wife Kylie’s and my heart,” Hall said. “Hopefully there’ll be plenty of people out there willing to donate through the auction and grab one of our pink jerseys. “Seeing they are the first the Cowboys have worn,

they are a real collectable.” Further details on the auction, to be conducted by online auction provider IMG Sports Technology Group, will be released closer to gameday. The auction will begin at noon on Monday, June 25 and end at noon on Sunday, July 1, 2012.

Wanderers win inaugural FNQ Remote Challenge THE 2012 FNQ Remote Challenge was held in Cairns last weekend, with three teams battling it out to become the Cape York Champions. Central Cape, Southern Cape and Three Rivers travelled great distances to attend the carnival, but it was no issue, as the players enjoyed the opportunity to play some representive footy. Each team played each other twice in a round-robin format with every game going down to the last five minutes before we had a winner. Southern Cape Wanderers were the inaugural winners with

15.5 points, Central Cape 12.5, and Three Rivers four points. A very strong team was selected to take on the Queensland Outback in the near future. Three Rivers five-eighth Nigel Bowen was named player of the carnival, best back – Fitzroy Lawerance, and best forward – Eli Tabuai Results: Central Cape 28 – Three Rivers 26; Southern Cape 18 – Three Rivers 16; Southern Cape 34 – Central Cape 18. Southern Cape 22 – Three Rivers 20; Central Cape 26 – Southern Cape 26; Central Cape32 – Three Rivers 30.

Players from Mapoon, Weipa and Napranum made up the Central Cape side.

The Three Rivers side with players from Cooktown, Hopevale and Wujal Wujal.

Kowanyama, Pormpuraaw, Coen, Lockhart River and Aurukun were represented in the Southern Cape side which took out the inaugural FNQ Remote Challenge.

Teamwork a highlight of local soccer games FAIR weather and a good turn out ensured fun games for all players and spectators this week. Soccer now breaks for the school holidays with the next games to be played on July 14. Thank you to the refereess and parent helpers who make the games possible with their support and enthusiasm. Squirt Parents – your help with the teams as Game Leaders is very much appreciated and is needed to run games that the young kids can truly enjoy. Coaching for Teens, Titans and Senior Titans is on Mondays at 5pm. Coaching for Squirts and Tykes is Wednesdays 3.30pm, however there is no coaching during the two weeks of school holidays. It is important that all players arrive 20 minutes before the start of their game to allow for full teams to be played. Please assemble at the P&C shed. Squirts White & Navy V Gold & Green Great teamwork from Isaac and Grayson for White, and Zack and Darius from Gold. Isaac scored some great goals and a ripper from mid-field. Grayson did some amazing kicks and fancy footwork. Zack was fantastic in defence and kicked some terrific goals. Darius was the leading goal kicker and put in a huge effort. Squirts Gold & Navy V White & Black Jay got the first goal of the game after a good pass from Tai. Tia kicked an awesome goal. Shonika stole the ball off the boys then Tai kicked a big goal from the half-way mark. Shonika kicked the ball all the way up the field, but was not strong enough for the attack from Tai, who then brought the ball back to the other end of the field to score. After a bit of rough and tumble, Shonika was finally rewarded with a goal, and Tai kicked an outstanding goal from diagonally across the field. Well played by all team members. Tykes Gold v Blue Great game with Jaylen, the star striker, scoring goal after goal for Gold. Connor did an amazing kick

with the ball flying over the heads of the other players. Kieran did a strong kick across the field. Sean sped across the field for Blue. Great game enjoyed by all. Tykes Red V Green Early scores by Gary for Green followed up with a confident strike to goal by Riley. Daniel soon responded for Red with a great goal. A tight match with several excellent tackles by Tayla and Tom for

Red. Green displayed fantastic teamwork between Isaac, Meagan and Riley to support Gary, who found the net again just before the half-time bell. Strong tackling and defending by both teams. Gary’s golden foot found the net again and was answered quickly by Daniel. Final score Greens 3 and Reds 2. Well done soccer stars. – Photos by Denis Sullivan

THE Weipa Fishing Classic has been run and won, and what a great weekend it was. The weather was perfect the guys from Creek to Coast did a fabulous job on stage. As a newcomer to Weipa I was suitably impressed with the organisation of the event, with food stalls, displays by sponsors, and the live entertainment from the bands, dancers and the tug-o-war, casting competition and the cast-net tossing provided something for everyone. After such a big event I thought that there would be reports coming in from everywhere, but they have been very thin on the ground. I know that the Tight Lines column is read, by the number of people coming into the shop and saying what a good read it is, so drop in or give me a call and tell me what you have been catching. Exact locations wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disclosed, just general area. There has been a lot of small Mackerel around out on the reefs and again the sharks have been a problem with some real big ones amongst them. Fishing for reef species has been a bit slow but if you persevere you can put a feed together comprising of Fingermark, Tuskies and Nannygai.

Weipa Squash Club finals WEIPA Squash Club held their semi-finals, then preliminary finals over the last two weeks. In A grade, commiserations to Teams Pot and Yard Glass who bowed out of contention gracefully when Teams Stubby and Schooner finished in first and second place with Team Stubby narrowly coming out on top to go straight through to the grand finals. A surprisingly easy win it was for Team Schoonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A1 Owen Witt against Team Stubbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lukas Dorsett (but perhaps running half marathons before semi-finals is not a good idea?), despite many nick shots, long strokes and backhanders against the left hand side wall, butany win by Lukas would only have added to their impending victory (3-0). A2 Jeff Berry and Grant Foster showed their athleticism, resulting in many excellent rallies and tricky short shots, however Grant was the stronger player even though Jeff forced the middle game to â&#x20AC;&#x153;longâ&#x20AC;? (0-3). A3 Chrisden Russ could not rise to Sherie Hinschenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenging tactics (must have been the shoes!) despite their middle â&#x20AC;&#x153;longâ&#x20AC;? game also (0-3). A4 Ben Tantau met with tough opposition in Jay Dumbleton and their marathon match went to five nail-biting games, demonstrating their equality of skill (3-2). Teams Tallie and Pint played off as third and fourth placegetters for the opportunity to have a second bite of the cherry and play against Team Schooner in the preliminary finals. Team Pint were victorious only on a countback of points as they matched Team Stubby by each winning 10 games, which always makes sensational viewing. UUcontinued page 20
