The death of Thomas Kelly, who died after being punched by an intoxicated man at Kings Cross last year has resonated with people across the state. He was by all accounts a smart, handsome and well-loved young man on the verge of starting his adult life. The grief of his parents is obvious, and they are determined that his death not be in vain, but lead to lasting change. The man who killed him was sentenced to six years imprisonment for manslaughter, with a minimum of four years, plus an extra 14 months in prison for assaulting four other people. This sentence caused many people to question our sentencing regime. Immediately following the handing down of the sentence, I requested the Director of Public Prosecutions consider an appeal and later that week he announced he would appeal against the sentence, and ask the Court of Criminal Appeal to issue a guideline judgment. Guideline judgments set a sentencing benchmark for judges, and guide judges in similar future cases in their sentencing. The government has also approved the drafting of new unlawful assault laws, which would cover cases of assaults causing death - even if the offender did not intend or foresee the victim's death - with a maximum penalty of 20 years. Alcohol-related assaults fell last year and the government will build on the many measures it has implemented in order to reduce these assau~s further. I hope that the new laws and the attention to this terrible case will send a message to drunken louts that this type of behaviour is unacceptable and potentially deadly.

LETTERS to the Editor

A song tribute to Bennelong Dear Sir, I write regarding the TWT promotion of our wonderful historical aboriginal friend whose grave has recently been discovered in Putney by Dr Peter Mitchell. May I let readers know that the locally wntten song 'Mr Bennelong' has so far reached the top 30 finalists of the Australian Song Contest (Australia category) as judged by the Australian Songwriters Association. Should any kind of website ever evolve as a tribute to Bennelong I wou ld certainly consider the song's use for that website. Can't think of a more fitting recipient of recognition than our Bennelong. The efforts made by TWT and Peter Mitchell in bringing forth Bennelong's story are to be congratulated. A true unsung hero, till now at least. BOB BROWN North Ryde

Thank you for being orange Dear Sir, Last week was SES Wear Orange Wednesday, known as WOW Day. As an unpaid volunteer in the SES Ryde unit it was warmly appreciated to see many members of the public wearing orange, waving to us and shaking our hand to say thank you as I, and many of my teammates, moved around the City of Ryde.

LETTERS Welcome TWT welcomes letters from our readers. Full name, address and telephone number MUST be supplied, even if not for publication. Send to: TWT PO Box 123, Ryde 1680 or email: contactus@weekly Ryde Unit had a busy day with Mayor Roy Maggio, along with several volunteers, raising the SES flag on the Civic Centre in the morning and then in the evening gathering in the mayoral suite for a civic reception. It was heartening to see so many Council staff dressed in orange. During the day a dedicated team of SES members partnered with NRMA staff at Macquarie Centre to give away orange poppy seed cake and provide information to residents on how they can prepare their homes before storms. NRMA were excited to host this event and went all orange with streamers and balloons. Some staff even had orange fingernails and lipstick. The orange support that SES Ryde unit has received from everyone on WOW Day is gratefully appreciated. At our weekly meetings, news of these events is met with spontaneous applause as our way of saying thank you for the thanks. Despite the widespread colour of orange this year, surprisingly only half of the adult

population know to phone 132 500 in a storm, flood or tsunami emergency. WARREN SMITH NSW State Emergency Service, Ryde Unit

No gaol for the fire setting kids Dear Sir, I'm writing to you to discuss the im portance of funding treatment models for young fire setters. During October we experienced one of the worst bush fire emergencies I have ever seen. Even more troubling, there were at least seven young people • ranging from 8 years old to 17 years old, charged with starting fires that caused significant damage. The public discourse has been about how to punish these young people, but I'd like to see how we can treat them and turn these youngsters into productive members of society. They should be punished, the devastation caused by some of the fires was horrific. However, the punishment needs to include rehabilitation. The young people that set fires often have a victim mentality and when they light the fire, they are only concerned with burning down the world that has wronged them. Throwing them in gaol, with no treatment, is only going to grow that victim mentality. Treatment is the only way to make sure they don't reoffend. To treat them, we have to identify what sort of fire setter they are. The 'DynamicBehavioural Model' (DBM) de-

scribes two different types of fire setters: non-pathological and pathological fire setters. Once we have identified the type, we then need to match them with the appropriate treatment program. Treatment can be done in a locked facility, similar to a gaol, but with a focus on rehabilitation. The DBM also provides us with aspects of their lives that we must assess to commence treatment. To understand their motivations when setting fires it's important to analyse their personality and individual characteristics; family and social circumstances; and their immediate environmental conditions. These three aspects of their lives are the vari ables that interact to produce fire setting or increase the risk of fire setting. We have to invest in treatment models that work. In order for juvenile fire setters from both socio -economically limited and wealthy families to receive services, I recom mend that State Fire Marshals sponsor the development of the Fire Intervention Mentor Model (FIMM). This model will allow for the training of key mental health personnel in various municipalities. These mental health personnel will be responsible for training other mental health personnel in more out· lying districts. My hope is that this invest· ment will mean the next time a bush fire emergency is experi enced, less young people will be implicated in setting fires.

Local tennis association looks back over 90 years THE NORTH Western Suburbs Tennis Association (a volunteer non-profit community based sports organisation) was inaugurated in 1922. Our first President was W. Setchell and joint Secretary and Competition were Lyall Campbell and Harold Childs. Most of the credit for forming an association must be given to the Johnstone broth· ers (John, Jim and Henry) who lived on an orchard property in Buffalo Road, Ryde. Henry Johnstone became president of the association from 1926 to 1936. We are affiliated with Tennis NSW and the NSW Hardcourt Tennis Association. In 1977, we amalgamated with the Balmain Tennis Association and in 2009 established the trading name 'Ryde Balmain Tennis' to better reflect the region we cater for. Our association tennis centres are at Meadowbank, Ryde and Birchgrove. The association today caters for social players, competition and coaching through the suburbs of Annandale, Balmain, Balmain East, Birchgrove, Boronia Park, Denistone, Denistone East, Drummoyne, East Ryde, Eastwood, Ermington, Gladesville, Glebe, Henley, Hunters-Hill, Ryde, Huntley's Point, Leichhardt,

Anthony Roberts MP has had a hectic week in his dual role as Member for Lane Cove and Minister for Fair Trading.


He had a full week in State Parliament introducing three new Bills which were debated well into the night. They are the Motor Dealers and Repairers Bill and the Resident Communities Bill which covers residential retirement parks and estates and caravan retirement parks. Third item which will affect all residents living in apartment blocks is the Strata and Community Title Law Reform Bill which will update strata buildings laws and regulations. In a brief reprieve from Parliament, Anthony Roberts met representatives of Ryde Rivers Festival committee to receive a Certificate of Appreciation from Gladesville Rotary Club members for assistance with this year's Festival and a Sports Grant of $5,000.

Hunters Hill has been betrayed by Lane Cove MP Anthony Roberts according to a coalition of local residents who want to save the municipality's threatened heritage laws.

The Save Hunters Hill Municipality Coalition headed by former mayor Ross Williams and former councillor Phyl Jenkyn OAM has released a copy of its scathing letter to Mr Roberts where he is accused of betrayal because this month he voted for a proposed Bill which threatens to give property developers powers to override existing local heritage protection.


Ryde Mayor Clr Roy Maggio presented Ryde SES Controller Keiran Gibson and Deputy Controller Dianne Gibson with Certificates of Appreciation at last Wednesday's Civic Reception in the Mayoral Suite during Wear Orange Wednesday celebrations.

Ryde SES Community Engagement Officer Warren Smith said WOW Day was a great way for the community to show its support for our volunteers and an opportunity to further promote safety during floods and storms. "Storm season began last month and continues until March so now is the time to take some proactive measures to ensure your homes are stormsafe rather than be reactive during a storm", he said. The basic steps people can follow to prepare for storms include: SECURE or store loose items around the yard or on the balcony TRIM over hanging tree branches CLEAN your gutters and downpipes every six months ENSURE your drains are free from blockages so water can flow freely when it rains CHECK that your roof is in good repair e very year MAKE sure your insurance is up to date PREPARE your tour Emergency Kit For emergency help in storms and floods call NSW SES on 132 500 or dial 000 in life threatening emergencies.

The Coalition letter notes Mr Roberts attendance at a recent public meeting in Hunters Hill Town Hall where he promised to speak on behalf of Hunters Hill residents opposed to the so-called White Paper on Planning. "It is inconceivable given your public statements at the Public Meeting in the Hunters Hill Town Hall and in The Weekly Times that you have in the end supported such a flawed piece of legislation," the Coalition wrote to Mr Roberts. "You have sold out our constituency to support a new Planning System that is not balanced and skewed heavily towards the developer lobby to the detriment of commu nity, heritage and environmental considerations. "Who will be the beneficiaries of this new system because it is certainly not our residents." Mr Roberts told Th e Weekly Times the claims made in the letter were unfair, hurtful and wrong. "I stand on my record. I have served for twenty years fighting overdevelopmen! in the Lane Cove electorate," he said. "I'm proud to fight for my electorate and I'm sure constituents will compare and contrast what we have compared with and in contrast to other electorates. "For example, we don't have massive overdevelopmen! at historic Gladesville Hospital because I've fought against it." Mr Roberts has previously given his parliamentary support to NSW Planning Minister Brad Hazzard who has the unenviable task of creating more housing to ease the current rental crisis across the North Shore and to prepare for an expected growth in Sydney's population. The Municipal Coalition has also put its case to Hunters Hill Council and last week warned cou neil-

lors that NSW Legislative Council approval for the Bill will see multi-storey residential towers "like the Ryde" ones at Top approved by the government in Hunters Hill as early as next year. The Council had previously been warned that its Local Environment Plan (LEP) wou ld be over-ruled by the proposed planning laws and that residents will have unprecedented powers to build and renovate in areas currently restricted by council heritage controls. In a letter to the council, Mr Hazzard stressed that the community will still have a say but the Coalition said the Minister's comments do little to reduce the impact of what it believes to be flawed legislation, with no redress. "After an initial period of being prepared to consult with the community you ( Mr Hazzard and Mr Roberts) have now slammed the door in our faces and will not respond to legitimate requests to discuss the matter," the letter to Mr Roberts said. The Lane Cove MP did not attend a recent event at Kelly's Bush, Woolwich to recogn ise the 40th anniversary of the Battle to Save Kelly's Bush, wh ich was addressed by the original battlers and former Builders Labourers Federation leader Jack Mundey.

The event was also attended by The Greens' leader, David Shoebridge who last week promised to oppose the White Paper. "To stand beside Jack, Miriam, Joan and Christina at Kelly's Bush on the site they protected was not only a pleasure for the natural surrounds and company, it was a direct connection with a wonderful activist past and an inspiration for our work for the future," he told The Weekly Times. "Unless we rekindle the spirit of Kelly's Bush we will see developers getting private certifiers, or council planning staff to approve industrial and warehouse development up to 20,000 metres square on bushland, a row of 20 semidetached houses on your street and the destruction of your two story local shopping centre and its replacement with residential and commercial tower blocks and all without you having any say." Labor and Independent councillors in Canada Bay, Parramatta and Lane Cove have also expressed concern about the proposed planning changes in the White Paper which Ryde Labor Councillor Jerome Laxale has described as being worse than the former Kenneally government's loathed 3A Planning Law exemptions. "This is 3A on steroids," he said .

Cheesed off following drug bust A MASSIVE 150kg of suspected stolen cheese was found in the boot of a car in Carlingford on Thursday morning. The cheesy find was made during a drug bust in Marsden Road, Carlingford and police have appealed for information about where the cheese came from. A black Ford Focus was pulled over on Marsden Road as part of a routine patrol of a car park around 3.30 am on Thursday where they found prohibited drugs as well as a box of cheese with 'Cheese King' labels on it. A 31-year-old male passenger in the sedan was arrested and taken to Ryde Police Station where he was charged with possessing prohibited drugs and having goods suspected of being stolen. The cheese has been

O ne hundred years ago Eastwood was a small village with homes, shops, a railway line to the city, a brick p it, while nearby forests and farms surrounded the area and there was a lake where the sports oval now stands.

Un iting Church has grown out of the un ion of the local Presbyterian and Methodist Ch urc hes following the formation of the Australian Uniting Church in 1977. However, its origin dates back more than one hundred years. In 1907 the first Families, many bei ng recent immigrants from Presbyterian Service was overseas, mai nly the held and two years later in United Kingdom, built 1911 the first Presbyterian homes and brought with Church in Trelawney Street them their culture and was opened. In beliefs. Initially they 1913 the first gathered for worship in Methodist Service was family homes but gradually held and later in 1918 the

first church was opened beside the Lake. In 2006 the two churches amalgamated and became the Eastwood Uniting Church based on the Lakeside Road site. Three years later, after redevelopment of the buildings and the addition of a new Worship Centre the church as it is today was opened in 2009. Eastwood today is a very different place. A modern bustling town with a large diverse population from many parts of the world. Although we honour our pioneers and thank them for what they have given us we realise that the social context has changed and our church needs to move forward to cater for this new community and the needs of both young and old whether people have lived in the area for many

THE WEEKLY TIMES, Wednesday November 20, 2013- 11

JOE ts time to start talking tough, people if you have an analogue tv or recording device on The 3Rd December they will not be able to receive a tv signal or record anymore. Over the past couple of months we have seen a huge increase in demand for replacement tvs from Analogue to digital and also a massive increase in replacing recording devices. We have realized how many people record regularly (mainly to avoid the ever increasing advertisements on tv) or trying to keep up with the never ending saga of the Bold and The Beautiful or Restless Years (amazingly a lot of Restless Years"or B&B fanatics are retired men and happy to admit it!), People also record to because of their busy schedules so they can watch certain shows at a time to suit themselves. There is a lot of ways to record tv shows these days but the two main devices are either PVRs (personal video recorders) or Hard drive recorders, there is also still available a LG model that can

play VCR tapes and record digital tv to DVD this model is usually for the occasional recorder who can't let go of those VHS tapes they haven't watched for 10 years. We have had best success with hard drive recorders such as Panasonic and LG due to the simple way to set recording times. I have set both brands up in store for demonstration and once people are shown the ease of how to set recording schedules with the new digital signal even the Technophobes are confident they will be able to do it. We often have customers come back down for a refresher course after the they miss recording their favorite show usually due to user error but once they are shown again they are back on track. So make sure not only your tv is digital ready but how you record must be upgraded as well. I would like to make a few points about the feed back we are getting from customers re the switchover there has been a lot of talk about having to change your aerial for digital we have found that if your reception is good on existing analogue stations it will be ok for picking up new digital stations. We have also been asked many times about Foxtel or Optus pay tv, people are worried if the switch off will effect them, for those of us lucky enough to be able to afford

pay tv your service will not be affected. Another query often asked is about old dvds and VHS players they are all ok to connect to the new tvs for normal playback, make sure you mention this to us as we need to check if your new tv has enough of the old type connections.

Our answer has been to add an additional speaker such as a sound bar (large add on speaker) or home theater setup. We can also add on cordless headphones which I personally use to get much clearer sound and block out the kids when I occasionally have time to sit down and watch some sport. It has been a busy time for Holmans over the last couple of

We have also had one negative comment about the new tvs regarding the sound in cheaper and smaller screen sizes the sound seems to be of poor quality, I think this is mainly due to most new tvs speakers are much smaller and face the rear.

Treatment for grinding teeth Open House at Dalton Gardens Grinding and clenching teeth can cause TMJ pain as well as referred pain such as headaches and earaches, not to mention the chipping and wear on teeth as well as excessive wear on your TM joints. Often this happens gradually and most affected people tend to take action only when pain becomes frequent or when family members complain of the grinding noise the affected person makes during their sleep.

Health & Beaut Restoring joint function a big plus Maybe it is time for you to think about a chiropractic check-up - you may be in for a wonderful surprise, says local chiropractor Dr Sharon Wardle. "Chiropractors, whose main aim in treating their patients is to restore normal joint function , are acutely aware that increased well-being has a vast impact upon the brain. "All ch iropractors are taught that structure governs function," she says. "By adjusting joints, that is by making a physical change to them, we allow

New fitness club opens Free fitness classes, a seminar on 'Summer Body Secrets' by sports nutritionist Mel Scalene, and heaps of mini-fitness competitions, were all part of the fun at the recent opening of Anytime Fitness in Gladesville. There was f ree access to the club during the day and some lucky members guests won a and Magellan ECHO smart watch, a lorna Jane

voucher, a deluxe carwash from Awash, and a Rebel Sport voucher. Rotary Club of Gladesville laid on a sausage sizzle and raised $120 for the bushfire appeal. Children got their exercise on a jumping castle out front, and guests and members received free advice from Function Physio Gladesville, and Chiro and Sportsmed Gladesville.

Adrenaline HQ and Muscle Meals provided taste samples of their health products and offered nutritional advice, and body building pro luke Schembri put in an appearance. The Maverick Dragon Boat c lub brought the 'Erg' row machine and guests had a great time seeing how many rows could be achieved in 1 minute - the leader for th e day got over 200.

Achieve an ideal weight within 30 days, claim A l ane Cove based cl inic says it will guarantee clients will reach their ideal weight within 30 days of a first consultat ion. It makes this guarantee without the use of extreme diets or exhausting exercise, it says, through a safe, relaxing and proven sevenstep program that uses hypnosis. "A major reason is because we use advanced hypnosis. "Our advanced hypnosis system will give you the power to direct your mind to reach your ideal weight, guaranteed." Lane Cove Wellness also says that each program is tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of each client and that an average program session is around 60 minutes. " In the relaxed state known as hypnosis we can communicate with your unconscious mind. "That is why it is so quick

and easy to change the habits of a lifetime with hypnosis so you can reach your ideal weight." With doctors stressing the dangers of both obesity as well as extreme diets which cause a sickly, ultrathin weight, Lane Cove Wellness is quick to point out that each cl ient has an 'ideal weight' which can be quickly and accurately assessed in Lane Cove. "At the initial consultation you will discover your personal ldeai-Weight-0-Stat and Fat Furnace Flame along with getting a tailormade program to reach you r ideal weight in 30 days," Lane Cove Wellness says. "At the end of that period you can see for yourself that you are at your chosen ideal weight. "There are no fads or crazy regimes. " Lane Cove Wellness acknowledges there have been old myths and misconceptions about the past use and misuse of hypnosis, but stresses its tech-

nique is based on safe and scientifically sound methods. "Our system is based on advanced hypnosis and the latest NLP techniques combined with a proven seven-step program. 'These are completely safe and with hypnosis and NLP you are aware and in control at all times." In contrast to some diets and many military style weight loss reg imes, the system offered by Lane Cove Wellness does not use a one size fits all philosophy. "Because your reasons for not being at your ideal weight are different from anyone else's, the steps you need to take and the changes you need to take are unique to you," it says. "Lest us make it easy for you to reach your ideal weight by simply calling us on 1300 722 625 to make an appointment and keep that appointment."

Catering to a celebration or a special evening out Courtyard Marriott in North Ryde is offering a range of options ideal for a celebration or an evening out. Set in a secluded garden just off Lane Cove Road, the restaurant (right) features a sun lit terrace and breezy indoor seating. Operations manager Tanya Ritter prides the restaurant on being able to provide affordable options for guests and community members: "We are more than happy to accommodate a range of needs for people from the local area," says Ms Ritter. The restaurant has a range of weekday express

lunches, with daily specials like chicken parmigiana all priced at $12. The Courtyard also offers a range of options for Christmas. A themed Christmas buffet lunch is available on Thursdays and Fridays for $45 per person. The lunch includes a complimentary beverage and shuttle to and from the venue. The restaurant will also be holding a Christmas Day lunch. Priced at $160 for adults and $58 for children, the day will offer a traditional Christmas meal with seafood and house wine and beers. There will also be live music, presents and

even a visit from Santa. Courtyard Marriott focuses on modern Australian cuisine with an international flavour. "We have a multicultural kitchen so we can cook and make nearly anything," says Ms Ritter. That bit of friendly competition between countries means that the kitchen staff are constantly innovating, she says. also The restaurant employs Nikola, a barista who trained and worked overseas: "She is able to make piccolos and a real white chocolate mocha my favourite." The restaurant is open for breakfast, dinner and lunch

on weekdays. Complementary parking is available for diners. For further information phone 02 9491 9500 or email courtyard.northryde@

Reg Wallace (above), now a resident of Dalton Gardens, celebrates his 100th birthday with relatives (right) at Hunters Hill Bowling Club.

• •• The Theraputic Hi-Lo adjustable bed is the most advanced adjustable bed available to consumers. It allows ultimate height adjustment from 42cm up to 85cm, representing the best Hi-Lo adjustable value on the market today.

Dalton Gardens Ryde resident Reginald Michael Wallace must be one of the lucky few who've received the La st Rites and lived to tell the tale. During World War Two he served with the RAAF in Darwin and while the Japanese air force bombed the city, Reg was so ill from peritonitis he had to be ferried south for an operation where part of his bowel was removed. No one then, 70 years ago, thought he'd have the strength to shrug death aside, but a few weeks ago the indomitable Reg celebrated his 1OOth birthday with 150 friends and relatives who'd come from all over Australia and from overseas to join him at the Hunters Hill Bowling Club. Reg Wallace was born in Narromine in Central West NSW on the September 30, 1913 to parents Richard Wallace and Francis Taylor, one of 19 children in that family. He and his siblings grew up on the famil y property three miles out of town and later at a homestead in town. Reg attended school at St Augustine's, run by the Sisters of Mercy and around the age 12 joined the 1st Narromine Scouts and later would become the Scout Master and District Cub Master for the area. In the 1930s, as a Trooper he joined the 6th Li ght horse which was later disbanded due to mechanisation. As the war had begun Reg turned to the RAAF and due to his great physical shape was assigned duties as a drill and physical

training instructor. He was stationed at Laverton, Richmond, Wagga, Narromine and Deniliquin, where as a sergeant he met a young private from the Women's Auxiliary Air Force fYVAAF) Teresa Kathleen Cavanagh. Reg was transferred to 31 Beaufighter Squadron where he attained the rank of Warrant Officer Disciplinary (WOO). He was eventually stationed in secrecy in Darwin and was under fire from the Japanese the entire time he was there. Reg's letters to Kath were censored and she had no idea where he was or what danger he may be facing. This was about the time Reg became ill and was not expected to make a recovery. His doctor told him that if he made it through he would be no good for heavy work and told Kath, 'That old man of yours is a pretty tough old bugger.' Reg and Kath married in 1944 and after the war settled in Bondi, where they had two children. He was employed as a child welfare officer at Yasmar in Ashfield, and during this time he found land offered by Ryde Council at Moss Street West Ryde, which he bought to build their first home. The family moved into the home in 1948 and another two children arrived. Reg then took up a position at Plessey Telecommunications at Meadowbank as a pay clerk where he remained until retirement in 1978. He was honoured in 1983

During World War Two Reg Wallace served with the RAAF.

by the 1st Putney Scout Group for service to scouting and his unassuming nature was compared to an advertising slogan at the time, 'BP the quite achiever'. Reg has a sincere interest in the lives of all of his six ch ildren, 17 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family members. Throughout their lives Reg and Kath made many friends in the neighbourhoods they lived in and through local churches, especially St Charles where they celebrated Mass, and Holy Cross College where they were members of the Parents and Friends long after their children had finished school. They unselfishly supported many worthy charities and were always helping with fetes to raise money for the schools and parish. They worked as volunteers

for many years at St Vincent's De Paul Ryde and also ran street stalls to raise money for the education of Aboriginal children. Horrie Rudgeley has been a dear old mate of theirs for over 50 years and who, himself, turned 100 in September this year. Horrie accomplished something that no other person could, he encouraged Reg most vigorously to relax by playing bowls and socialising on a Saturday afternoon at Putney Bowling Club where he remained a member for many years. Kath and Reg moved into Dalton Gardens in recent years and thanks go to the residents, staff and volunteers for the love and care they have shown. Reg's faith and love of the Catholic Church has never wavered as has the enduring love and commitment to his beautifu I wife Kath who passed away in February this year aged 88. He attributes his longevity to clean living: he has rarely drunk alcohol and hasn't smoked; he keeps to a simple diet and exercise, and is content with the honest hard working life he has lived. During the lunch on his special day a number of presentations were made, among them congratulations from the Queen, the Governor General, the Prime Minister and the Premier of NSW. The Commissioner for Scouting Australia NSW sent congratulations and commended Reg for his services to the movement.

Ryde home offers multiple living at its very best This unique and stunning architect-designed brick home at 115 North Road Ryde offers luxurious family living at its very best, says agents Grant Fletcher and Janet Fletcher of Ray White North Ryde.


Real Estate Talk

MC!fO One

Maximise the advantage of owning real estate • Have reasonable expectations. Aim for positive cash flow, but be realistic and don't ask for too much rent or you may risk pushing out good tenants. • Working on your rental property can be tedious. Sometimes it could involve many legal matters with a troublesome tenant. Consider engaging a professional property manager to take back your precious time. • Federal and state laws determine your responsibilities and liabilities. You can't claim ignorance when something bad happens. • Have your potential investment property professionally checked before you buy and avoid unexpected expenses down the road.

"Featuring multiple living areas and seven large bedrooms, this home would be highly suitable for a large family with teenagers, dual families, and the in-laws," said Grant. " It could also be utilised as a professional business (subject to Council approval) and offers a separate home office, reception room/library and separate bathroom. There is dual access (electric gates from North Road), and secure parking for up to five vehicles", he adds. All bedrooms have built-

in wardrobes and two of the larger bedrooms could be suitable as media or rumpus rooms. The master bedroom is complete with walk in robe, ensuite, spa and balcony. Design featu res include an expansive formal lounge and dining room, open plan living room which flows to delightful Tuscan style alfresco dining and grassed north facing rear gardens (578 square metre level block). The state of the art kitchen features Ceasarstone benchtops, glass splashback, eat-at island bench

and gas appliances. Built in brick with concrete slab upper and lower levels, other inclusions include Italian stone feature walls inside and out; Jarrah solid timber flooring throughout, shoe storage at entrance hall, art alcoves, electric gates, security system and video intercom. Walk to bus and all amenities. For further details about this unique property contact Grant Fletcher 0438 816 602 or Janet Fletcher 0438 543 547.

• Make sure your leases are legal. Confused wording might make it difficult to argue if a tenant violates the terms of the agreement. • Make friends with your agent, lawyer, tax professional and a banker. They will be essential if you increase your holdings.

Promise Challenge award Anneliese Sandy of 1st Boronia Joey Scouts was recently awarded her Promise Challenge by the NSW state Commissioner for Joey Scouts, Mrs Lyn Mann. Joeys are the youngest section of the Scouting movement and cater for boys and girls aged 6 and 7. · 11 k Th ey t YPICa Y wor towards badges as a group and the Promise Challenge is the first badge they complete individually, and the highest award they can attain. The badge comprises a

number of elements including learning about Scouting and its history, considering our duty to God and what Joeys do best -Helping Other People (HOPI). Anneliese is a fabulous reader, and for her service element, elected to help one of our youngest Joey Scouts learn to read. She developed lesson

plans, including selecting age appropriate books and setting spelling tests. The child she assisted loved the attention and was certain that it helped her improve her reading. It is wonderful to see our seven year olds finding ways to share their gifts with others. Congratulations Annie on a job well done.

Gold rush for DSA paddlers PADDLERS from the Dragon Sports Association Dragon Boat Club based in Rhodes produced outstanding performances at the recent Manly Dam Regatta. W ith t he competitive Dragon Boat season now in full swing, steady rain failed to dampen the spirits of dedicated local dragon boat paddlers in the season's second official event. There was an impressive level of competition, with many of the top teams fielding multiple strong crews across all divisions that resulted in fierce racing despite the inclement weather. Dragon Sports Association fielded seven teams of paddlers over two age d ivisions - all eager to rise to the challenge. The DSA crews dominated in t he 500m races, winning a total of three gold medals and one bronze wh ile the Masters Mixed team b litzed the field to clinch their final by over 2 seconds - solidifying their previous v ictory. Both the Premier Mixed and Premier Open teams won t heir finals w ith less than a second in it, and the lone bronze was won by the Premier Women team with little more than one second between th em and fi rst place . With possibly the most successful regatta in the Club's history, DSA President and Head Coach George Louie, had this to say. "The team performed way beyond my expectations and the results demonstrate we have worked very hard over the last s ix weeks

to step up and compete," he said. · we look forward to the challenge of stepping up again and performing to the best that we can be".

The c lub continues to forge its way to the Australian D ragon Boat Champ i onships in Queensland and ultimately to defend its title of World Champion in Masters Mixed 1O's 500m in the 9th World Club Crew Championships in Ravena Italy, in September 201 4. "We are looking for spon-

sors to assist with our expenses to Italy - if you can help, we would like to hear from you". DSA Dragon Boat C lub always welcomes new members to come and try out this f un, competitive and social water sport. For more informat ion check website: www.

In other quarter final fixtures, top ranked Sutherland host RandwickPetersham at Glenn McGrath Oval; third ranked Campbelltown - Camden square off with sixth-ranked Gordon at Raby Oval No 1 and fifth ranked St George line up against Parramatta at Hurstville Oval. The Tigers' spirits are high following last weekend's rousing victory over neighbours Northern District in first grade action at Drummoyne Oval thanks to a superb ton by ski pper Tim Sparke. In a thrilling tussle, the experienced Sparke hit an unbeaten 153 off 193 balls to guide Sydney to a two wicket victory over the Rangers, who declared at 9-317 on the opening day. Sydney were tottering at 4- 72 and 5-11 1 before Sparke produced key partnerships with Dan Smith, Daniel Jacob and paceman Jake Turner to help the Tigers claim six valuable points. The Tigers started their innings on a disastrous note with the Joss of young openers Tristen McDonald (0) and Ash Squire (2) before night watchman

Sparke combined with Smith (28 runs off 49 balls) for a sixth wicket union of 52 and also with Jacob (27 runs) in a valuable seventh wicket stand of 6 1. The Rangers were poised for victory when paceman Scott Borthwick (4- 101 off 25 overs) dismissed English all rounder Brett Hutton for

a duck to have the Tigers 8-225. But Sparke and Turner (27 not out) proved the heroes with an unbroken ninth wicket partnership of 93 to snatch an exhilarating victory in the 96th over. Sparke's epic knock featured nine boundaries and four sixes and followed up his unbeaten 108 in a record-breaking fourth wicket stand of 231 with Smith against University of NSW at the Village Green.

"The work they do in developing our game's future talent is something the League is extremely thankful for because without their hard work, we wouldn't be in the strong position which we are in today. " I would like to congratulate everyone involved on all the hard work they have put into the formation of the association and I look forward to working with them in the future," he added. The finalising of the document was completed at the

annual Junior League Administrators Conference in Gerringong which took place across three days. During the conference administrators had presentations from NRL Chief Executive David Smith; NSWRL General Manager - Strategy and Community Affairs Dirk Melton, on the NSWRL's strategic plan and lectures on NRL education programs and inclusive rugby league. Directors will include Yvonne Purtell (Penrith}, Jennie Webster (Balmain), Greg Florimo (North Sydney), Julie Luke (Western Suburbs) and Chris Brooks (St George).

Tennis dynamo retires at 88 SHE'S served hundreds of aces and reeled off a multitude of backhand winners - now evergreen Beryl Eagar of Ermington is ready t o hang up her tenni s racquet at the ripe age of 88. Tennis has proved a w ay of life for the active senior, who is retiring t his w eek after 66 successive years of competitive ladies midweek tennis. Beryl i s pictured with her daughter and doubles partner J une Lovett at the Ryde Tennis Centre courts w here th ey've racked up many a competition triumph in the North-Western Suburbs Tennis Asso ciation. " I've loved every minute of it but its time to give my legs some much needed rest" says Beryl, who turn s 89 next February. For six decades she stood by her motto: "The more you do - the more you can do." Constant practice and playing has kept this local tennis dynamo in tip-top shape for much of her career. Beryl and daughter June,68, have proved a formidable team during the past 31 years in Division 1 and Division 2 events. "She mightn't have the speed she once possessed but my mother makes up for it with her courtcraft and ball placement," said June. " It won 't be the same without her." Introduced to the sport back in 1949 as a crafty 23 year old, Beryl quickly carved her niche in the Pa rr am a t ta - Gra n v i II e Association. With her fierce backhand, high fitness level and court mobility, Beryl proved a handful for opponents in the various grades. " I remember using a two and six penny Coles racquet and playing five days a week - in charity events, ladies competitions or practice matches with the Inter-District kids," reflected Beryl. "Most of the ladies in the Association had a backyard tennis court so there were ample opportunities to hone your racquet skills." "All the neighbours would play scrabble and tennis - a far cry from the sporting options that are available today."
