Vote in local council election The 2013 local council elections are heading for one of the tightest elections on record. Both the City of Wanneroo and the Shire of Gingin council elections have various hidden twists and deals that could affect the future direction of each council. After resisting a ‘no ward’ election at the Shire of Gingin for a number of years, this year’s Gingin council election is based on no wards and a reduction of one councillor. Eight candidates are seeking election to one of four positions.
Out-going shire president, Michael Aspinal, along with deputy shire president David Roe, and councillors, Reg Beale, Val Ammon and Glenn Rule are seeking re-election. The challengers for the four vacant council seats are: Max Benari, Frank Faulkner and Sandra Smiles. The Shire of Gingin council election looks like a three way contest - Coastal vs Greater Gingin region vs the ‘Boys Club.’ History shows that incumbent councillors have a twenty per cent stronger chance of winning, but
with five councillors seeking election to only four seats, someone is going to miss out. It is very hard to assess the candidates from their submitted profiles. Wanerie’s Max Benari, who was a candidate at the last council elections states in his profile: “ I believe the best social service any government can deliver is full employment, and local government should focus on infrastructure. Good roads and adequate power supplies best facilitate business development.”
Frank Faulkner says: “ I stand for quality planning ideals, harmonious interfacing interests, reviewing standards and family recreation.”
seeking re-election for a further four year term with a base remuneration of $30,000pa, plus a variety of expenses.
While Sandra Smiles from Seaview says: “I have a strong commitment to contributing to my community . . . My interests are enhancing our lifestyle while supporting business development and tourism, fostering recreation and cultural pursuits and working towards environmental sustainability.”
In the North Ward, there are two candidates contesting this important ward election - Deputy mayor, Laura Gray, and Liberal Party candidate in the 2013 WA state election, Linda Aitken.
At the City of Wanneroo, there are eight vacancies that 23 candidates are contesting. All incumbent councillors are
Among a variety of rumours, both candidates have run minimal campaigns to win North Ward vote.

Fr o m t h e e d i t o r ’ s d e s k It was disappointing to see the WA State Government’s credit rating slip from the prestigious AAA recently. What frightens me more is the deterioration of individual credit ratings and the effect it has on families for years, and years. Personally, I believe both the Federal and State Governments have overspent their budget and have not managed the country’s finances sufficiently.
write properly, let alone manage their own finances - What chance of managing the country’s finances.
governments and individually at an even higher uncontrolled rate - Some people make a monthly credit payment with another credit card.
Government, all governments State, Federal and Local Government should be managing the country and its assets better.
How the hell do they expect to pay off the debt?
Big time manufacturing in Australia is dying, Australia is too expensive to manufacture most consumables.
Luckily, we have time to correct for the future, but we need to be pro-active and have more foresight to recognise that we need to change.
We mine resources, sell them off and then buy them back at a higher price - Is this in the best interest of Australia and our future?
We need more real communityminded thinkers and less swindling self-centred people who are only motivated for self interest.
So what is the future?
Do you think we are up to the challenge?
Unfortunately our governments are doing similar - transfering debt to another period - It’s financial debt on steroids.
Adding to this, we are constantly reminded about the ‘boom’!
There are a number of people bragging about surviving the 2009 GFC, to me, the question is have we?
The only boom I’m seeing is growing debt, both with
Or, are we starting to feel the delayed reaction of the GDC?

Lucky Lotto region Brighton Newsagency, Lancelin Newsagency and Gingin Supermarket havenâ€™t sold a winner in the past ten years. In WA there has been a run of big winners with a $20 million win in February, $10 million win in May, $20 million win in August, and a $22.2 million win, third largest Lotto prize ever won in this state, in September. Taking the state and local populations into account, WA is leading the way as the luckiest state in the nation.
West Australians spent a record $820 million on Lotto last financial year. WA keeps its record as having the most Lotto sales per capita in the world. In Lotterywestâ€™s annual report recently tabled in parliament, it shows that there is evidence interactive gambling and increasingly popular sports betting was harming Lotto, especially with young punters. Record Lotto jackpots ensured that Powerball sales rose by 54 per cent; and Oz Lotto by 30.5
per cent. In all, 70 West Australians have shared $102.5 million worth of division one prizes. Over the past ten years, the outer northern region has had four division one winners - Two Rocks Newsagency sold the winning ticket in May 2003, and October 2010. The new Yanchep Central Newsagency has sold two division one winners in only seven months of trading $565,719 (April 2013) and $1 million (September 2013).
A proportion of all Lotto monies is returned throught grants to various community groups for a variety of projects. Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group received a $20,572 Lotterywest grant, last year, to purchase vessel equipment to support their sea search rescue activities. The City of Wanneroo received a $14,999 Lotterywest grant, earlier this year, to purchase equipment for Banksia Grove and Two Rocks toy libraries.
Bulk rubbish - Ugly sight
The City of Wanneroo provides two bulk collections each year One for green waste, trees and shrubs only, and one for general waste and junk such as furniture, whitegoods, timber, etc. Some people across the North Ward in the City of Wanneroo have started dumping general bulk rubbish on their verge, months ahead of the next scheduled collection. The next general bulk rubbish collection in Yanchep and Two
Rocks is scheduled for the week commencing 6 January 2014.
face on-the-spot fines for illegal dumping.
Signage is placed on the main entry roads to each suburb during the week prior to bulk collections and bulk rubbish must not be placed on the verge until your area has been advertised, one week prior to collection starting.
If rubbish has been dumped on the verge before the approved date causes a fire or injures someone, the householder/resident could be legally responsible for injuries or damage insurance claims.
The Sun City News understands that residents dumping rubbish on their verge three months early will be asked to remove it themselves or could
This is a free service the council provides the community, as residents and householders it is our responsibility to work with the council.

Mailbox Boat ramp closure No mention of the closure of the Two Rocks boat ramp from 10 October to 5 November - Recfishwest or Dept of Transport know nothing about it either. A small sign was taped to the handrail some time last Tuesday. Although long overdue for a massive upgrade, why close it five days before the start of the demersal fishing ban on the 15 October? If the weather is good, up to 100 boats will be out on the last weekend, (12 and 13 October) costing local businesses lost revenue too. It makes you wonder if those involved in the closure and upgrade know anything about fishing, boats or launching ramps! Geoff Henderson, Two Rocks.
Be upfront I agree with you, we have been done again in regards to broken promises and I think there are many more to be relayed to us, it will only be a matter of time when we wake up to these people who say they want to get into parliament to make the system better and fairer for all - What a joke!
As you remind us they have recently had a nice lift in their pay packet in more ways than one. I feel before each election all salaries and allowances should be properly stated that this is what they will get for the whole of their term, ‘full stop’. That goes for staff also, then they will know the rules and if they like what’s offered at that time, ‘end of story’. I do believe this secret group of people who run the allowances board should be completely changed. The ordinary workers are being short changed every way you look at the system. There should be no homeless people in a state such as WA. We have a very unfair system when you look at the price of rentals, which is more than a person gets on the dole or pensions of various groups. Thanks for pointing out some of these serious things which are going on. But I guess we get what we deserve, it’s only people themselves who can make these changes. By the way, what local law states you can be a paid councillor and not do a stroke to help your area? Audrey Hine, Joondalup.
Rubbish dumping I agree, we have a real problem with various household rubbish being dumped in the bush and public land. We recently decided to go for a drive out towards the former pine plantation along Breakwater Drive to take our dog for a run. We were shocked and dismayed at the amount of rubbish that has been dumped there. But I don't believe that increasing the fines is the solution, let's face it, how often will the rangers be able to get there in time to give out fines and most dumping will take place when no others are around to witness it happening. I feel the solution is go to the root cause, which is quite obviously the fact that we all have to pay huge sums of money to leave our rubbish at Tamala Tip. I'm not that old, but still remember when you used to be able to take your rubbish to the dump free of charge. These days you have to be rich to just afford to take it somewhere legal. Either that or live with it building up in your property until the annual free collection where not everything is accepted anyway.
A while ago, we had to clear out a heap of rubbish left by some former tenants at our rental property and take it to the dump. It cost us over $150 to leave it there. How many people can afford to pay these copious amounts of money in our local community? I know many would be struggling. The dump should be a free service provided by City of Wanneroo. If necessary, a small increase to everyone's rates wouldn't even be noticed to accommodate this. Then I think we would all see a huge reduction in the rubbish being dumped and ruining our public land. Audra de Pina, Two Rocks.

Bullying - Top issue for WA school children Australian students say school bullying is the most important social issue to tackle, according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data. Recently released ABS ‘Census At School’ data places ‘reducing bullying in schools’ as the number one issue in 2013, ahead of having healthy eating habits and access to the internet. Bullying at school has been the highest rated social issue, across Australia over the last four years, ABS assistant director of education services unit Frances Mawdsley said. "Reducing bullying has been the social issue of highest importance to Australian students since 2010, with a peak level of importance recorded in 2012," she said.
"It has actually reduced across Australia in 2013, but still remains as the number one issue." Students rated the importance of reducing bullying in the survey, a median of 84 out of 100, Ms Mawdsley said. West Australian students had rated the importance 80.4 out of 100. The figures indicate that bullying causes a great deal of anxiety among children, ECU Child Health Promotion Research Centre Professor Donna Cross said. "It doesn't shock me at all that it's rated as the highest issue impacting students. It shows it's a very serious issue," she said. "When children report data like that - the general sense is that bullying
is highly prevalent and causing anxiety among children." While the ABS data doesn't indicate whether the students are being bullied at school, the information is useful to understand how important prevention methods are to them, Ms Mawdsley said. "What we are asking our students to do is to rate the level of importance these issues are for them – the data doesn't indicate whether the students are bullied. It's about to what level of degree it is important to them as an issue," she said. Bullying behaviour causes both victims and bullies to experience distress and psychological harm, and impacts the ability to learn effectively, Professor Cross said.
Thursday 3 October 2013 - Page 5 - Sun City News
"We recently conducted a large survey across Australia of 7000 children. Twenty-five per cent of children reported that they were being bullied every few weeks. A quarter of children are being bullied and half of all children have experienced at some point," Professor Cross said. "This is a whole community problem, everyone needs to take action when they see aggressive behaviour. Adults need to have zero tolerance and act quickly when it is perceived. "From the outset, adults need to address with their children what it means to be a bystander and what to do when they see bullying. "Young people often say that peer support helps them. If peers say
'this behaviour is unacceptable' then the bully is less likely to keep doing it." Professor Cross said her research also showed it was important for parents to let children ‘help themselves’ when it came to addressing bullying. "One of the most debilitating things that children experience is when an adult says 'I'll handle it'," she said. "Be a sounding board for your child and spend time with your children to find out who their friends are. Support them to make good quality friends and encourage their friendships to blossom."

Local council election FROM PAGE 1 Deputy Mayor and Two Rocks resident, Laura Gray is seeking re-election, stating: “For the past eight years, my passion, enthusiasm, experience, integrity and commitment ensured that as your local Councillor I understood and responded to many challenges on your behalf.” Linda Aitkens’ profile states: “I'm passionate about providing a better lifestyle for local residents. My priorities are: Better local community and sporting facilities; Better recreational facilities for Seniors; Better traffic controls at our suburban intersections.” Ms Aitken has openly stated that she will be contesting the next State Government election. Back in July 2013, Weekend West journalist, Gary Adshead, revealed connections between a northern suburbs church which embraces supernatural healing and speaking in tongues being closely connected to the Liberal Party. The Sun City News is aware this church already has connections in both the Wanneroo and Joondalup councils. In the Coastal Ward, there are five candidates for two positions, Ian Goodenough, is not seeking re-election, after his successful election to Federal Parliament, while Rudi Steffens is.
Mr Steffens’ profile states: “Since 1999 as an inaugural councillor in Wanneroo, I have assisted hundreds of residents, groups and associations with local issues.” New candidates for Coastal Ward are: Glynis Parker, Mark Diggins, Sabine Winton, and Geoff Newby-Butt. Little is known about the candidates, their profiles can be found on the WA Electoral Commission web site. In Central Ward, Dot Newton and Dianne Guise are seeking re-election. Martin Miller, Adrian Lancaster and Kim Shanks are contesting the two seats. In the South Ward, where the biggest candidate nomination were received, 11 individuals have nominated for three vacancies. Brett Treby and Stuart McKenzie are seeking reelection, while Domenic Zappa, Hugh Nguyen, Long Lam, Virendra Parikh, Les McDonald, Samuel Jordan, Dave Tierney and Julie Moroz are all first time candidates; Judy Hughes who was a councillor between 1999 and 2005, is seeking another return to local government. Most registered residents and ratepayers in their respective local government region should have received their ballot papers already.
If you haven’t received your ballot paper, contact your Electoral Commission returning officer. At the Shire of Gingin the returning officer is George Gifford and can be contacted on 0467 802 284. Jim Kelly is the City of Wanneroo returning officer and he can be contacted on 0417 961 194. Local government elections are held on the third Saturday in October, every two years. This year’s elections will be held on 19 October 2013. This year, the WA Electoral Commission received a total of nearly 800 nominations for just over 300 vacancies, an increase of 12 per cent over 2011. This is the largest number of candidates ever. Earlier this year, all councillors received up to nearly 300 per cent increase in remunerations and a number of upgrades to their expenses. The official vote count will commence after 6.00pm, on Saturday 19 October in the Shire of Gingin Administration office and at the City Of Wanneroo council chambers. Members of the general public are welcome to attend, or they can follow the vote count through the WA Electoral Commission web site.
With every Local Council election, there is usually a change in dynamics on the council - You will find that there is usually a minimal turnover of councillors unless there is a major issue or a particular political party or interest group strongly and financially supports a particular candidate or group of candidates. Voters need to actively seek sufficient information about their candidate before voting. The more responsible voters are, the more informed voters are, the better candidate will be elected. Sadly, many residents and ratepayers don’t even bother voting, let alone doing any research; it is usually the same residents and ratepayers who are the first to whinge and moan about what the council is or isn’t doing. An active community, that cares about what goes on in their community, will do the responsible things to ensure their region has the best representation possible.

OPINION A bus is not a rally car Ever since I was twelve years old I can remember catching Transperth buses and trains to visit my father. I thought this was an awesome adventure that I was embarking on. As I got older I started to take notice of things that would happen during the trip like the bulling, teasing and heated discussions going on between the school children from Mindarie Senior College and Clarkson Community High School. As my school days ended I still noticed this bulling and that nothing was being done about it. One day I hopped off of the bus and called Transperth's information line to report the bulling, soon after transit guards were seen on two 490 buses a day however, the bulling never stopped. This one particular day, my friends and I were catching the bus to Clarkson and a bus driver swore at us for no reason, we were on the phone reporting the incident straight after it had happened but no action was taken and no apology was given. After moving away from Two Rocks to Maddington, I started catching four buses a day to and from work, during this time I have
Thursday 3 October 2013 - Page 8 - Sun City News
had bus drivers on the 228 and 229 routes go through red lights, nearly hit light poles as they turn corners, not slowing down until the last possible moment jerking everyone forwards in their seats and having headphones in while driving ultimately taking their attention off of the road. I, myself, as a person who relies on public transport to get around Perth, worries about the safety of each and every passenger aboard Transperth buses when bus drivers drive unsafely and treat their bus like a rally car in a race. When a bus driver is driving a bus they are not only responsible for themselves but also the possible 59 to 76 passengers that could be on the bus as well. Ultimately I feel bus drivers in Perth have forgotten about the safety of their passengers and just care about getting from A to B as quickly as possible so they can be done with their day and go home. The bus companies are meant to provide a good quality and safe service to their customers and Transperth is not doing that. Ebony Alsop, former Two Rocks resident, now living in Maddington.
Naturalist and great photographer
Naturalist and relatively new resident to Yanchep, Monica Iseppi, since she was a child, has always loved two things: animals and photography, and has been lucky in both aspects. As Monica said: “On one side I grew up in a house surrounded by a beautiful garden full of creatures and things to explore, and my family has always supported my interests, allowing me to study natural and animal science. “On the other, my uncle is a brilliant photographer who has given me the passion for photography, and my
first camera, encouraging me to experiment with always new techniques and equipment. “So I become a naturalist and a wildlife photographer in my country, north-east Italy, dealing with educational projects to raise peoples’ awareness of the importance of preserving our environment.” In 2010, Monica and her partner organised a 4x4 trip around Australia, and they fell in love with the beauty and wilderness of Australia, the marvellous weather, people's unique kindness and lifestyle.
In 2012, they decided to migrate to WA, with the hope to start a new life in Yanchep one day. And now they are here, in this amazing growing city, gate to the outback, with so much potential. Monica sent a few of her great photos to the Sun City News and a slide show of Monica’s photography will be available at www.suncitynews.com.au or check out her web site at www.gingyu.com which has a collection of places, subjects and topics that have impressed her most.

week. The most memorable and educational places we went to included the National Museum, High Court, Australian Electoral Commission, Australian War Memorial, old Parliament House and new Parliament House. The most memorable place was new Parliament House where we saw the House of Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representatives has 150 members of parliament and the colour is green because it represents the colour of eucalyptus leaves. The Senate has 76 members and the colour is red because it represents the colour of the Australian outback. The flag on top of parliament cost $4 million and it is about as big as a double decker bus. The building alone costs $1.1 billion and the inside is mainly made out of marble from around the country. Parliament House was opened on the 9 May 1988, by the Queen and an interesting fact is that if you link up all of the hallways in one straight line it will equal to 25 kilometres. The educational benefit of going to Parliament House was that we learnt about parliament, the structure of government and we now have a greater appreciation of how it runs and influences our nation. Two photos with the student outside Parliament House were supplied, but unfortunately their resolution was to low for printing.

Wild storm causes local damage
Storms with relentless rain and heavy winds have damaged scores of homes and stretched emergency services resources. At one stage, around 3.00am, Yanchep Beach Road was blocked when a whilly-whillie caused two trees to fall. City of Wanneroo emergency workers cleared the trees by dawn.
Almost 10,000 homes lost their power supply as the violent storms lashed the South West and metropolitan area for more than 24 hours. Photos supplied courtesy of the following people: Danny Oâ€™Loghlen, Vicki Larkins, Jamie Howell and Sue Zemke.

There appears to be several personal and private documents on the 4GB drive - This is an opportune moment to remind everyone who uses these type of thumb drives to be very careful about where they are kept or stored.
Moore River News was successful in their submission for ‘Moore River News Website - Moore News on the Web’ and awarded $5,000 in grant funding.
If you think you own this thumb drive, call into Yanchep Police station.
The funding will be used to help secure resourcing to develop a website for the local community to access online news, publicise local events and publish the community newsletter.

Neergabby fireworks night
Last Saturday night, the Neergabby Community Association held their annual firerworks night. A near record crowd, estimated at about 4000 gathered around the bonfire and the burning of the ‘guys’. Then followed one of the greatest fireworks shows you would see. This great family activity was entertained by The Mucky
Bush Band with their timeless music and bush dancing. Many families brought a picnic dinner or enjoyed one of the association’s great hamburgers. This night is certainly ‘onenot-to-miss’, it was great to see so many local families having a great night - Well done, Neergabby Community Association.

Book Review The Sun City News crew are all keen book readers, today you can read your favourite book on an iPad, hardcover or softback - Here is our selection this week. Sergeant Boehm, it’s a story that will end as tragically as it began. For this is clearly no ordinary siege. The boy, known as Ali Khan, seems as frightened as his hostages and has yet to utter a single word.
book is a pure work of art. You have to take your hat off to anyone who could come up with such a madcap concept, and then carry it off with so much aplomb.
Her young daughter has been kidnapped and she is awaiting news of the two men who went to pay the ransom and bring her child to safety. The kidnapper wants a huge amount of cash, as well as The October List, an enigmatic document which is always at the heart of the action.
The seconds tick by for the five in the shop: Mitchell, the talented schoolboy; Mouse, the shop assistant; Kimmi, the nail-bar technician; and Roger Callaghan, the real estate agent whose reason for being in Bondi that day is far from innocent.
No Place Like Home From bestselling author and award-winning journalist, Caroline Overington, comes another thought provoking and heartrending story, that reaches from the heart of Bondi to a small village in Tanzania. Shortly after 9.30 in the morning, a young man walks into Surf City, Bondi’s newest shopping complex. He’s wearing a dark grey hoodie, and a bomb around his neck. Just a few minutes later he is locked in a shop on the upper floor. And trapped with him are four innocent bystanders. Police chaplain, Paul Doherty, is called to the scene by Senior
The October List is a brilliant concept and a fine read.
And of course there’s Ali Khan. Is he the embodiment of evil, as the villagers in his Tanzanian birthplace believe? Or just an innocent boy, betrayed at every turn, who just wants a place to call home?
The October List Author, Jeffery Deaver, is high up on many people’s list of favourite crime authors, with Lincoln Rhymes his finest creation. He’s sold millions upon millions of books and appears on bestseller lists all around the world, so why would Jeffery Deaver feel that he needs a write a stand-alone book? The October List is a story told backwards, the word ‘gimmick’ does spring to mind. But forget any preconceptions, because this
all. The story begins/ends as single mum Gabriela is sitting in a borrowed apartment in Manhattan, her eyes glued to the clock.
The Vale Girl
Imagine then, setting the whole idea on its head and beginning the story at its finale, then progressing or retreating, perhaps, to where it all began.
Thursday 3 October 2013 - Page 18 - Sun City News
Sarah Vale, the missing girl, is known as ‘the prostitute’s daughter’. Her friend and the instigator of the search for her is Tommy Johns, ‘the boy with the dead mother’. From an early age Sarah has been helping her alcoholic mother, counting her earnings in the mornings and hiding cash so they can eat and pay bills. The kids at school taunt Sarah, and after being assaulted on the way to school she truants and retreats to her favourite swimming hole at the creek. It’s from here that she disappears. Tommy is an intense boy, with an itinerant, heartbroken father who leaves him alone at home for long stretches. Recently his feelings for Sarah have deepened into love, and he raises the alarm when he can’t locate her. He finds an ally in the local policeman, Sergeant Henson, and together they begin to search for the girl no one else seems to care about.
Deaver is the king of the corkscrew construct, with plots that always keep you guessing right to the end.
Each chapter in The October List is timed and dated and the action occurs over just two days. Even the pages and chapters are numbered back to front, to underline the reverse nature of it

Fresh food tricks
What producers and supermarkets do to keep food looking fresh Fresh food sold isn’t always as fresh as you might think.
chemical compounds contribute to flavour.
Technological advances mean the lamb chops that look so succulent could have been butchered four months ago, and those shiny red apples might have been in storage for more than a year.
1-MCP is already used extensively for apples, and increasingly for other fruit, such as avocados and melons. Fruit is often sprayed with fungicides to prevent mould; imported fruit and vegetables may be fumigated with methyl bromide to comply with quarantine regulations.
Chilled beef mince can now be stored for up to 44 days and cuts of lamb for up to 112 days. Some supermarkets have their own butchery, but there is a trend to distribute prebutchered meat from a central location. A steak can be vacuum-packed or placed in special modified atmosphere packs for display. The gases used for these packs are carbon dioxide and nitrogen – Carbon dioxide inhibits growth of microorganisms and nitrogen is an inert filler. The gas mixture may also contain a small amount of carbon monoxide, which reacts with the myoglobin in the meat, producing a healthy-looking red colour, even when the meat is far from fresh. Carbon monoxide is permitted as a food additive in Australia, but it’s technically a ‘processing email@example.com
What you can do aid’, which means it does not have to be declared on the label. The extended storage time for meat is made possible by new technology, but there are concerns about possible health risks. Harmful bacteria can grow to dangerous levels while the food remains attractive to the eye. Clostridium botulinum is of most concern because of the severe illness it causes. Thorough cooking should kill most bacteria, extra care is needed to make sure the meat is cooked right through and to avoid cross-contaminating other foods with bacteria via knives or cutting boards, etc.
Most of our fruit and vegetables are stored for at least a few weeks. Produce is chilled as soon as possible after harvest, so that it deteriorates much more slowly. Controlled atmosphere storage and packaging, with lower levels of oxygen and higher levels of carbon dioxide than normal air, can further slow down deterioration. 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) is increasingly being used to extend the storage life of some fruits and vegetables. This chemical blocks some of the biochemical changes that occur as fruit ripens and matures. Tests have shown the fruit remains hard and 1-MCP also prevents production of
Follow the seasons, fruit and vegetables that are in season are likely to be fresher, tastier and more nutritious. Choose fruit that is well coloured and with a bright appearance. Feel for a tender texture and smell the stem end for stone fruit and the blossom end for apples, tomatoes and melons. Only buy fruit with a full, fruity aroma.
