A century of traditions Three local community organisations recently celebrated their 1 OOth anniversary: The Cheltenham Recreation Club, the Beecroft Bowling Club and the Epping Uniting Church. The Church, which first occupied the Epping site in 1913, started out as a Congregational Church one of the denominations that combined to form the Uniting Church organisation in 1977. The clubs have existed continuously ever since. One hundred years ago - thirteen years after Federation our young nation was still finding its identity. It was a year before the first World War. Community organisations like these two clubs and the church d id their best to contribute to the sense of community and to bring people together in the Epping area. The community can be rightly proud of the longevity of these institutions which have contributed so much to the local area. This is a significant milestone for each of these organisations which deserves to be celebrated for enriching all our lives. No organisation reaches such an anniversary without a lot of hard work and goodwill from staff, dedicated volunteers, and office holders. They are the real drivers of the community spirit, the real heart and soul that keep our community organisations going. And they too deserve to be celebrated and appreciated at such an important time. Congratulations to everyone involved in the past, present (and future) of these vital community organisations. Thank you for nurturing the community and for three times one hundred years of memories, experiences and relationships.

Dear Sir, Why is it that Ryde councillors feel the need to air their dirty laundry in public?

Classes are held at WeiI Park (opposite Marist Sisters College, 60 Woolwich Road) on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7.30am to 8.30am. When the weather is too cold or wet and doesn't permit outside activity, the classes are held in the Scout hall at the park. The tai chi grandmaster Gary Khor says "a growing body of Western medical researchers are starting to marvel at tai chi exercise. This exercise art has been studied in-depth in the East for many centuries as a sophisticated system promoting health and longevity.

"Western scientists now concur the practice of tai chi is of tremendous benefit in many physical and mental health situations. " Your first attendance is free and thereafter if you are interested you must purchase a book of 10 tickets, for $100, to be used as you please. Come along, get yourself in shape and help the community at the same time. All residual profits go to Rotary to assist local youth projects.

"An average bedroom sized serviced by a 2.5kw unit works out to be around $25 for the year. Some people would pay $25 for just one night in a nice cool room when it gets really hot let alone 200 hours of cooling."


s part of our planning for the Summer we obtain long term forecasts from the bureau of meteorology and other sources trying to ascertain the demand we will have for air conditioning units. Over t he last 30 years we have sold and installed thousands of units in the area and it has become an important part of our business. In preparing for this Summer ahead we have discovered a number of points which lead us to think we are headed for another hot summer. The last 10 months have been abnormally warm across Australia and we've seen a notable lack of unusually cold weather this winter. The more significant records for this period include: Australia's hottest day on record, Australia's hottest week on record, Australia's hottest month on record, Australia's -....--~-

hottest summer on record, and Australia's hottest September to june (10 months} on record. In summary, at the mid point of Z013 we can be quite confident that the current year will be one of Australia's warmest years on record. As soon as the first hot days came through at the beginning of September enquiries and sales went up significantly. We are amazed how many people in our area have never had air conditioning as they are worried about the costs. My theory is spend the kids inheritance money and be more comfortable. As per the government website energyrating. for an average of ZOO hours a year a 7kw unit which will

comfortably do an average living I kitchen area the cost would be around $110 in energy at about Z5.3cents per kwh for the year. An average bedroom sized serviced by a Z.Skw unit works out to be around $Z5 for the year. Some people would pay $Z5 for just one night in a nice cool room when it gets really hot let alone ZOO hours of cooling. Every year we try to get people to start thinking about air conditioning early because as soon as we have a couple of hot days and nights when no one can sleep people become a bit crankier and stock and installation dates become a problem. We sell all the major brands such as Mitsubishi, Panasonic but we are really excited

St Michael's Primary School Meadowbank will present their very first musical production this week. 'Cinderella & Rockerfella' is a pantomime musical which tells the modern day version of the Cinderella story, with a rock star called Rocky taking the place of the traditional Prince Charming. This hilarious show includes great songs, crazy characters, audience participation and of course a happy ending, which is essential for any good fairy tale. "Our students, staff and families have been working hard all year to prepare the show and it is so exciting to see it all come together," says Music teacher Rosalie Baxter. "We wanted to provide an opportunity for every child in our school to perform on stage in a musical production, so every grade from Kindergarten to Year 6 will be presenting a song to help tell the story." There'll be four performances at 1.30pm and 6.30pm on Wednesday October 23 and Thursday October 24. The 6:30 performances have already sold out but there are still tickets available for the matinee shows. Inquiries 9808 2658.

Honour, Honesty and Courage which he demonstrated in everything he did, we gave up trying to analyse it and j ust enjoyed it You will recall I said I would come back to Dad 's time as Telegram boy; Just before the war ended at age 16 these boys were required to d el iver Telegrams to the next of kin, usu· al ly wives or mothers o f those killed or missing in action.

Dad didn't often swear, he would say 'swearing is a tactic of the inarticulate' and he would 1'arely speak ill of another person. whilst I have not mentioned Dad's political affi liations he did display a sign for all to see on his lawn at election time. This brings me back to the events of 1975. you may recall the Govemor General dismissed the Govemment in November o f that year, after which Dad regularly spoke ill of another person and became inarticulate whenever Sir John Kerr's name was rnentionOO. What sort of a fathl'r was he?

Dinin The seafood•s quality, but now there ·s more to relish Georgio Colosi - owner operator of the family run La Perla restaurant in Gladesville - has been dishing up fine quality seafood for 35 years. He's been able to achieve this as a result of his understanding and passion about the way we should eat, which has a lot to do with his knowledge of the product. He says he still gets a k ick out of attending the fish market auctions where, he says, he buys the freshest catch straight off the boats. And after bringing his "catch" back to the restaurant he's never shirked the job of cleaning, filleting and prepar-

ing for the important part - the restaurant service. He maintains he will always offer the best deal to his patrons, even when prices are fluctuating. He says he will not substitute "with an inferior alternative". Big news at the restaurant is that they're introducing a new menu with the support of their chef, Albi Cuni, who comes direct from Italy and is a specialist in international cuisine. The new menu is designed to offer a variety of seafood, meat, pasta and pizza and Mr Colosi is recommending dishes be shared. Supporting all this activi-

ty is the launching of their wood fired pizza oven which will come into its own for evening diners only. There'll be pizza crusts with quality toppings concentrating on freshness and simple flavours. For example there's Pizza Perla with tomato, Mozzarella, prawns, and calamari and Rocket; the prawns and calamari are oven roasted first, and with the rocket are placed fresh on top when ready to serve. Prices for meals are: pizza crusts from $18$24; pasta dishes from $24-$30; meat dishes from $28-$43; seafood dishes from $20-$38. Mr Colosi says diners

can now come into La Perla and have a 'taster' menu without feeling like they need to eat up a storm, and he will take you on a "culinary voyage as only he knows how". Regular customers should note that "all of our well-known 'loved' dishes will remain". The restaurant emphasises that pizzas are offered only during the dinner service. Lunch trade remains the same, Tuesday to Friday, 12pm-3pm, and dinner trading is Tuesday to Sunday, 6pm-10pm. La Perla is at 255 Victoria Road, Gladesville, phone 98161161.

Normie Rowe Show at North Ryde RSL Club

â&#x20AC;˘ "?\

Legendary Australian entertainer Normie Rowe and his Sydney band will perform at North Ryde RSL Community Club on Saturday November 9 at 8pm.

BULLDOGS rugby league legend Paul Langmack and AFL great Kevin Sheedy entertained p atrons a t Putney-Tennyson Bowling & Community Club's recent Grand Final Sports Luncheon. They are p ictured with key luncheon organisers Robert Hawkins, Laurie Ager and Rod Farlow. TWT on-the-spot PHOTO.

Rowe, Australia's biggest pop star of the 1960s, defied the logic of the times. His period of peak popularity came when the Beatles were dominating the charts around the world. It was the period of popular music where most established solo singers were suddenly banished from the charts, and young smgers were IOmmg or forming bands. And yet, here was this Melbourn e teenager creating pop riots and becoming the first Melbourne record ing artist to achieve a national Australia number one. Since his first record in 1965, Normie has been etching his mark in Australian society both as an entertainer and a committed Australian. Normie's first foray into national public life started with a recording career that set new standards for the

Victory spoils for Poker champ David After a thrilling three days of play at The Star Sydney, David Nirens of Gladesville walked away with $50,000 after winning The Showdown poker t ournament that brings together the best players from the Australian Poker League and 888 Poker League. The event saw over 390 players converge on The Star including Olivier Baux and Amjed Slewa who both walked away with over $100,000 at the last two ru nnings of The Main Event in Melbourne. While it was David who took the spoils of victory, every player in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with friends from around the country and make new friends while enjoying all the hospitality on offer.

Famous Seafood Restaurant



David, who currently runs an archiving business called Smart Box, returned to poker in 2006 after an extended period living in Israel, where he co-ordinated an international volunteer program. While in Israel, David met his wife Anita, who was a volunteer from Ecuador. David, who is an APL reg ular at Club Ryde X and Gladesville RSL Club, was a crowd favourite. "I had a group of about ten who came over to cheer my name. They had no idea who I was, but as a baby boomer I was representing them."

$18-$24 Pizzas are only offered during Dinner Hours. Fully Licensed and BYD wine only. Lunch: Tuesday-Friday 12noon-3pm Dinner: Tuesday-Sunday Spm-1 Opm

255 Victoria Road, Gladesville Phone 98161161

As Sunday progressed and the number of players was slowly whittled down, it came to a heads up between David and fellow New South Welshman Kevin Makita. The two were highly focused as they played some thrilling heads up poker. In the end David was simply too good and was a deserved winner over Makita, who fought gallantly all evening. David plans on using his prize money to travel to Ecuador and Israel with his wife and their eight month old daughter, Ruby Daniella. He was especially grateful to the team at Australian

Poker League for running the event. "My hat goes off to APL, they did a great job" he said.

Australian recording industry being the first pop-star to receive a gold record , soon following that with another four. This cemented his place in Australian recording history. The teenagers of Australia voted him, "The first King of Popular Music." Normie followed these recordings with national tours that set audience records in the sixties, filling auditoria normally reserved, at that time, for overseas performers. Normie is still a very dynamic performer playing

his cabaret/concert shows across the length and breadth of Australia and bringing his audience of devoted fans to standing ovations wherever he performs. Rowe 's greatest hits include Shakin All Over, It's Not Easy, It Aint Necessarily So, Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be); The Stones That I Throw; Sunshine Secret; Pride and I Just Don't Joy; Understand; Ooh La La; Penelope and Going Home. Tickets for the 8pm show are $30. Inquiries 98887588.

Homemakers Study says two-thirds of pool owners don •t know how to do CPR


Former Australian swimming coach and water safety ambassador Laurie Lawrence {right of picture) has joined forces with national pool and spa care franchise PooiWerx in an effort to improve pool safety education and prevent preschool drownings. It comes as new research released by PooiWerx this week reveals a staggering two-thirds of Aussie pool owners wouldnt know how to resuscitate their own family member in an emergency and a further 43 per cent dont have an up-todate CPR chart displayed in their pool area. The PooiWerx Pool Safety Survey lifted the lid on the significant number of Australian pool owners potentially putting lives at risk, with a further 20 per cent admitting to never inspect-

ing the safety of their pool area. The new partnership has been created to drive home the five important water safety steps among parents and children at a grassroots level in commu nities across the country ahead of the swimming season. PooiWerx Ryde owner John Fisher said his store was committed to promoting water safety awareness. "Despite boasting the highest pool ownership per capita in the world, Austra-

over reserve price," Mr Brown said. ·And once again with extremely satisfied clients." Although the business partners share the same surname they are not related. "We often talk about how well Barrie and I work as a team with Barrie's experience and over 40 years in the real estate industry enhanced by my enthusiasm and attention to detail." The duo from Gladesville also attribute

their success rate to a knowledge of the Gladesville area and a strong commitment to the families who live there. "With Kaitlyn being a local all her Iife, and me being a local since 1973, we know the area well," Mr Brown said. He also stressed that there has never been

a better time to sell in Gladesville. "Right now is the perfect time to sell and with the market being quiet, families are seeing record prices for their homes. "Well, record prices for homes sold through Barrie and Kaitlyn of Ray White Gladesville! "

Shall I Go For Auction Or Private Treaty? • The agent will advise on the method of sale most suited to achieving the best possible price given the type of property and local market conditions. • The auction_ method. of sale is based on an intensive promotional campaign over a spec1f1ed penod to attract a large number of 'target' audience who will enter competitive bidding for the property at auction. • More competition means a higher price and better conditions. The buyer does not have a 'cooling off' period. • How~ver, the property can also be sold prior to auction if an attractive offer is rece1ved. • In a Private Treaty, negotiations are carried out privately between the agent and the buyer. • Private treaty usually involves a 'fixed price' or 'price range' that is advertised. The seller has the option to accept or reject offered prices. • It is always the seller's choice. A good agent can explain pros and cons of all methods, so consider your next move carefully.

MP supporls youth mentoring program Ryde MP and Minister for Citizenship and Communities Victor Dominello this week announced that a new partnership between the NSW Government and local communities will see hundreds of disengaged young people receive mentoring to develop their leadership skills and commitment to volunteering.

RYDE Athletics Centre athletes Zoe Latham, Sarah Kelland, Maddy Bergfield, Sierra Co/lender, Georgia Winkcup; front Sam Hain, Johanna Vo/os and Harrison Wade.


Mr Dominello said the NSW Government has requested expressions of interest from the NGO sector to deliver a new youth mentoring program, designed to keep our younger generations engaged at school and to develop them to be strong community advocates. The NSW Government committed has $600,000 to delivering this program in 28 communities across NSW that have been selected based on criteria relating to socioeconomic status. "Mentoring can be a powerful tool to inspire young people to stay engaged at school and get involved in giving back to their community, " Mr Dominello said. "Through connecting local older role models committed to volunteering together with students in need of guidance, young people will look beyond their computer screen and make positive connections with different people in their community. • Students wi ll participate in personal development courses that give them the confidence to lead and to take action in their community on a cause close to their heart £> whether that be through coaching a young sporting group, organising a fundraising

event for a local cause, or fixing the gardens of an elderly neighbour. "The program will work with up to 360 young people across as many as 28 regional and metropolitan locations over a 20 week period. " The NSW Government's financial commitment will be matched at least dollar for dollar by the successful organisation, in a mutually beneficial partnership aimed at building strong and inclusive communities. "The Youth Mentoring will be Program independently evaluated prior to broader roll out so that participating communities and the

PACE bowling recruit Jake Turner and spinner Manjot Singh proved the architects as Sydney first grade cricket team toppled University of NSW to register its first win of the season at Village Green last weekend. Newcomer Turner (3-56 off 21 overs) and all rounder Singh (3-61 off 28) played pivotal roles with seamer Matt White (2-65 off 17) as the Tigers skittled the Students for 276 to open their account in the Sydney first grade cricket competition. A century by University batsman James Day (129) was to no avail as the home side failed to capitalise on a positive start. Luke Wells and Rico du Plessis shared an opening stand of 79 before Turner and White grabbed quick wickets to dismantle the University top order. Turner removed du Plessis (37} and skipper David Dawson for a third ball duck with the score on 79 before Mitchell White trapped Gowland LBW for 5 and snared the wicket of Wells, who was caught by paceman Tom Ortiz for 46, with 96 runs on the board. Singh proved economical and picked up the vital wicket of centurion Day, who was the last batsman dismissed when caught behind by Tigers' keeper Andrew Lowe. Day faced 188 balls and clouted 15 boundaries and a six to keep the University side in the hunt. MEANWHILE Tom Matson
