Editorial Welcome to this week’s editorial,

Unless you were one of the gallery at this week’s Council mee@ng you would not have heard the stunning presenta@on by 11 year old Kaeleigh Peard as she and six other speakers during Public Forum. Once liveVol 16 September 15th 2017 streamed, recorded and archived Council have now removed this op@on of community inclusion. 28 April December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 27th 2018 Vol 111 July 12th 2019

The Eurobodalla Mayor, Liz Innes, oered jus@ďŹ ca@on for the decision to the Bay Post on June 12th saying that “there was a disappoinng trend by a small group of presenters who abused the opportunity to engage with councillors and instead used it to "harass, bully, make defamatory comments and connuously promote misinformaon, and to also make defamatory and derogatory comments connuously about members of our sta". Earlier a member of the public had addressed Council applied the word ‘malfeasance’. This example was used to show that Council might be exposed to defama@on if it was to broadcast live such statements and without controls they could therefore not allow Live-streaming. The video record that contained the ‘defamatory’ presenta@on was edited by Council sta, however rather than dele@ng just a few minutes Council deleted 13 minutes of footage that presented nothing at all of legal concern. The footage was CENSORED. Using this rare example of one outburst saw a domino knee-jerk reac@on that now demands all presenters provide their wriIen presenta@on 24 hours before Public Forum. In the event that they might venture o their script live-streaming, recording and archiving was also removed and Public Forum was disconnected from the Council mee@ng by half an hour to sa@sfy a loophole that supported their ac@on. As a consequence no-one, other than the gallery, heard the presenters on Tuesday, no-one other than the gallery heard the applause for speakers like Kaeleigh and no-one other than the gallery heard the ques@ons asked by Councillors nor the responses give. And no-one other than the gallery witnessed the disdain, the body language, the distrac@on of mobile phones and ipads, the sneer, the ippant laugh nor the ac@ons of the mayor demanding that the gallery cease their applause of speakers following their presenta@ons. Of interest this week were the emails and comments that the Beagle received around the suspected mu@ng of gallery applause during the live-streamed sec@on of the Council mee@ng, especially in light of the Mayor’s self declared rule of NO CLAPPING. We reviewed the footage and found that it was correct. Vision of clapping but with no noise. With conďŹ dence and trust in the Council at an all @me low and suspec@ng, like many, that the Mayor may well have control of a Mu@ng BuIon to ‘kill the applause’ the Beagle enquired to discover that the Mayor, General Manager and Execu@ve Services Coordinator do have the ability to mute microphones. In this case however the mu@ng was of gallery clapping during the live-steam broadcast. Case solved however by one of our dedicated readers. The mu@ng happens when there are NO microphones in the chamber open. With Mayne the applause stopped directly aKer he turned o his microphone. The same with McGinlay. Fortunately there is footage to prove that no intended mu@ng took place. Now that we know the Mayor, General Manager and Execu@ve Services Coordinator do have the ability to mute microphones it makes a mockery of their jus@ďŹ ca@on to cease Live Streaming, recording and archiving given to remove Public Forum in case someone might say something untoward.

One Year Reprieve For Council Emergency Services Levy The NSW Government today announced it would fund the increase in the emergency services levy for NSW councils this financial year to meet the cost of new workers’ compensa@on for firefighters. Vol 16 September 15th 2017

28 December 7th, 2017 Ac@ng Premier Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro and the Minister for Local Government Shelley Vol 48 2018 111April July 27th 12thand 2019 Hancock said the State’s 128 councils would not have to pay the addi@onal $13.6 million this financial year.

“The NSW Government acknowledges that this addi@onal cost presented challenges for councils, par@cularly those in regional and rural areas badly affected by the drought,” Mr Barilaro said. “That’s why the Government will fund the $13.6 million to cover the addi@onal levy costs to support firefighters who develop cancer, to alleviate the immediate pressure on local councils. “Our emergency services have long been funded through a cost sharing arrangement between insurers, councils and the Government. It’s important that this con@nues and we look aKer the health and wellbeing of our frontline firefighters.” Mrs Hancock said the Government has listened to the concerns of local councils. “We acknowledge that many councils had already developed and approved their 2019-20 Budgets before the invoices for the increased emergency services levy were issued and this has caused some angst,” Mrs Hancock said. “We will con@nue to consult with local councils to beIer manage the impacts of the emergency services levy especially on their annual budge@ng cycles. “It is clear that both State and local governments acknowledge the importance of providing support for those emergency service workers who have given so much to protect communi@es and I look forward to con@nuing to work with local councils to ensure this is the case.” Minister for Emergency Services David EllioI said firefighters risk their lives to keep the people of NSW safe every day and it’s important they receive the full support of the communi@es they serve. “The new laws enable eligible firefighters diagnosed with one of 12 cancers to automa@cally be presumed to have acquired that cancer because of their firefigh@ng work,” Mr EllioI said. “These changes will ensure current and former firefighters – both volunteer and paid – who need care and support receive their en@tlements immediately.” Mrs Hancock said the Government will con@nue to support local councils to deliver for their local communi@es. “Since 2011, the NSW Government has provided more than $9 billion to councils to deliver and improve local infrastructure, services and facili@es for their communi@es,” Mrs Hancock said.

The walk-and-talks will give Batemans Bay locals a chance to share solu@ons on how to best encourage ac@vi@es for more residents and visitors to enjoy the foreshore. Council’s manager of strategic growth Liz Rankin said boos@ng business and leisure along the foreshore would reinforce Batemans Bay as the shire’s gateway and tourism hub. “We want to hear from locals how to enhance this important public space, how to establish new ac@vi@es and explore different ways to use the waterfront,” Ms Rankin said. “What would the community like to see in the urban design and built structures for the area? How do we create for Eurobodalla a waterfront gateway that helps drive social and economic benefits?” Ms Rankin said both Council and the NSW Government recognised the Bay as a key regional centre and tourism hub, and had a strong desire to revitalise the waterfront alongside the replacement of the Batemans Bay bridge. “The NSW Government is inves@ng in opportuni@es along the foreshore and we’ve invited specialist urban designers Inspiring Place to work with Council, businesses, landowners and the broader community on the Batemans Bay waterfront,” she said.

Na(ve fauna in the box seat With a decline in hollow-bearing trees across the shire, there’s high demand for a cosy Vol 16 September 15thnest 2017among our na@ve birds and animals. 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

Eurobodalla’s residents oKen go to great effort to create wildlife havens in their backyards; growing na@ve plants and providing water for birds and ponds for frogs. Now they’re providing animals and birds with new homes too. About two dozen nature lovers rolled up to a nestbox-building workshop hosted by Eurobodalla Council earlier this month. The result was 20 new nes@ng boxes, perfectly suited for local kookaburras, rosellas and gliders. Council’s environmental officer Emma Patyus said the workshop was held on a cold and windy day, “a good reminder of how important these nestboxes will be in providing animals and birds protec@on from the elements when natural hollows are in short supply”. The workshop was led by Susan Rhind and Murray Ellis – between them the couple have 60 years professional experience in nestbox construc@on and placement. Ms Patyus said par@cipants went home with their nestbox and solid knowledge on how to hang it. “The type of nestbox made by each aIendee was species specific for loca@on and environment,” Ms Patyus said. “For instance, for Broulee we made up protec@ve new homes for feather-tail gliders, given recent reports of their being caught and killed by domes@c cats in that suburb.” The workshop was only possible thanks to generous work done by the Eurobodalla Woodies who volunteered their @me and exper@se to pre-cut all of the materials and provided many helping hands during the workshop itself. Ms Patyus said demand for there was a clear demand for these types of ac@vi@es. “We have a wai@ng list and huge interest from community and Landcare groups,” she said.“It’s terrific to see the shire’s younger genera@on keen to get behind projects like this.” To find out more about building and using nes@ng boxes in your backyard, visit hIps://www.wires.org.au/wildlife-info/wildlife-factsheets/Wildlife-Nest-Boxes-LLS.pdf.

When local clubs and pubs get it very right Vol 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

I’m a big believer in the no@on that if you’ve had a good experience you tell people about it. Too oKen though these days, people are quick to cri@cise and complain, but on Saturday night, the only words passing through my lips were the lyrics of the classic hits by Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks. I’ve been to a lot of concerts in my 40 years, but the Dreams Show–Tribute to Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks–will go down in my books as one of the most memorable. These guys were seriously good.

Local author Sharon Halliday gets cosy with the Dreams Tribute Show band

The electric atmosphere was evenly matched by the musicians’ playing prowess and the singers’ vocals. As a tribute band, this group is in a league of their own. I have no doubt this will be a concert people will be talking about for a long @me to come. For me, it will be a night I remember forever–and not just because of the blisters on the soles of my feet from dancing for three hours straight! The Tomakin Sports and Social Club absolutely nailed it by selec@ng this band to feature on its entertainment program. The room was overflowing with posi@vity and for a few hours no one had a care in the world–it’s what a good night out should be. It was the perfect escape from the daily grind and life’s challenges. Being upliKed by a live music act is hard to beat. And there are plenty out there to choose from, many in our own backyard. From all accounts, The Rubens who played at the Moruya Waterfront was another successful music gig the night before! On the very same night as the Dreams Show, the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club hosted the Stars of Eurobodalla Dance for Cancer gala fundraising night, which was a sell out event. Returning to the Tomakin Club, the week before they hosted the 2019 Eurobodalla Business Awards, which was another roaring success. Eurobodalla locals are being spoilt for choice when it comes to live entertainment and it’s @me we made it clear how much value these venues add to our lifestyle here on the South Coast.

Pop in to the shop or give them a call to reserve your seat. Castaway by Robert Macklin In 1858, fourteen-year-old French cabin boy Narcisse Pelleer was aboard the trader Saint-Paul when it was wrecked o the eastern p of New Guinea. Scrambling into a longboat, Narcisse and the other survivors crossed almost 1000 kilometres of the Coral Sea before reaching the shores of Far North Queensland. If not for the local Aboriginal people, Narcisse would have perished. For seventeen years he lived with them, growing to manhood and parcipang fully in their Uutaalnganu world. Then, in 1875, his life was again turned upside down. Drawing from ďŹ rsthand interviews with Narcisse a=er his return to France and other contemporary accounts of exploraon and survival, and documenng the spread of European se@lement in Queensland and the brutal froner wars that followed, Robert Macklin weaves an unforge@able tale of a young man caught between two cultures in a me of transformaon and upheaval. beagle weekly : Vol 116 August 16th 2019

Gadfly 80 by Robert Macklin There is something about the Federal Government’s court case against former ACT Attorney Vol 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017and the former ASIS operative known as Witness K, that is not quite right. General Bernard Collaery Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

In fact, it feels thoroughly un-Australian. And what’s worse – much worse – is that hardly anyone seems to care. In simple terms, these two men revealed that their government was cheating in a negotiation with tiny East Timor (now Timor Leste) over the division of funds from oil and gas deposits in the Timor Sea. The government had ordered its overseas spyforce, ASIS to bug the East Timor side’s offices to learn their tactics and their bottom line. At the time the chief Australian negotiator was Alexander Downer, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade. And the Australian operator of the oil and gas treasure chest was the giant Woodside corporation. Australia secured a 50/50 split despite the fact that the Greater Sunrise fields were 450 kms from Darwin and only 150 kms from East Timor. Moreover, according to a recent report in the Australian Guardian, ‘Downer went on to work for Woodside as a consultant after leaving office…crossbench Senator Rex Patrick used parliamentary privilege [to assert that] the bottom line is that Downer and Woodside wanted to force East Timor, one of the poorest countries in the world, to surrender most of the revenues from Greater Sunrise…our plan was to deprive them of oil revenue.’ And we cheated. Yet it’s not the cheaters, but the two blokes who revealed it, who now face prison time for their actions. Is this really the Australian way? It’s impossible not to compare it with the so-called ‘Sandpaper-gate’ of our cricketers in South Africa. As a nation we were absolutely outraged, and rightly so; yet when our government cheats, it’s the whistleblowers who get the blame. And all the East Timorese wanted – and expected – was the Australian ‘fair go’. Bernard Collaery, to his great credit, came through for the East Timorese. He assisted them in putting their case at the International Court of Justice at The Hague, though the government prevented his client, Witness K from leaving Australia to give evidence in the case. This meant East Timor had little option but to drop its case – Australia agreed to re -negotiate - and a revised deal gave them 80 percent of the revenue. Witness K last week pleaded guilty to sharing protected ASIS information, but according to the Guardian, ‘Collaery will fight on, facing a partially secret trial in the ACT Supreme Court.’ He says, ‘Witness K has been put through six years of seclusion, harassment and questioning.’ A few brave souls, like former Victorian Premier Steve Bracks, and NSW Shadow Attorney General Paul Lynch have supported them. But in stark contrast to the outpourings over the relatively innocuous sporting scandal, the public has let this one pass through to the keeper. And the keeper is a cheat. The bugging occurred in 2004 when John Howard was Prime Minister. And Witness K blew the whistle in 2012 when Labor’s Julia Gillard was in Office. Now it’s Scott Morrison at the apex of government. The question is, whose side is he on – the whistleblowers or the cheats? Watch this space. robert@robertmacklin.com beagle weekly : Vol 116 August 16th 2019

Mrs. Heernan had not enjoyed good health for a number of years, having suered from an aec@on of the heart and for the past two or three weeks her death was hourly expected. She had the consola@on in her declining hours of having the whole of her family, as well as her brothers and sisters gathered around her. Deceased leaves four brothers, Messrs. J. T., W. J., P. H. and James Collins of the “Oaks,â€? (Candelo), two sisters, Mesdames James Tarlinton, (Cobargo) and John Coman (Candelo), three sons, Messrs John, Edmund and Patrick (Moggendoura), and six daughters, Mesdames Cleary (Moss Vale), P. Heernan (Candelo), P. J. Tarlinton (Cobargo), J. O’Reilly (Sydney), Sister Mary Borgia (of the Sisters of Mercy), and Nurse Margaret Heernan, to all of whom we tender the deepest sympathy. Twenty 100 years ago booklets containing arcles for the years 1899 to 1918 are available ($5 ea) from the Society’s rooms.

From Execu@ve Producer Mar@n Sheen, THE MAP TO PARADISE is an adventure-filled and spectacularly gorgeous tale about the birth of the global movement to protect the sea. From underwater worlds of ice to glistening coral sanctuaries, discover what it takes to build a movement and to create posi@ve change. Filmed across six con@nents, the filmmakers have set out to challenge the mainstream narra@ve of hardhiQng environmental documentaries with a “doom and gloom” message, and replace it with one of hope and courage. Along the way, we meet a prince, a president, a pirate, and also an island chief — among others — who are all playing a role in the quest to save the planet. Mixing colourful character-driven stories and hand-rendered anima@ons, THE MAP TO PARADISE is a rare urgent environmental wake-up call that retains a sense of awe and wonder for the kind of beauty that is s@ll possible. Featuring Prince Albert II of Monaco, President of Palau Tommy Remengesau, Na@onal Geographic Explorer Enric Sala, and Sea Shepherd's Captain Paul Watson, with original music by Emmy award-winning composer Daniel Clive McCallum.

Amandas of Mogo is bringing the interna@onally renowned mixed media ar@st AntonisTzanidakis from Greece to Batemans Bay to run a series of workshops from Thursday 26th to Vol 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 2019. Vol 48 27th 2018 Sunday 29th September 111April July 12th 2019 Students will get to relax and meet Antonis at the social event on Thursday evening to get themselves in the mood for an eye opening and inspiring three days of crea@ve workshops featuring the popular Steampunk style, combined with an array of mixed media projects and techniques. Steampunk is a look, a trend and a movement. Nature meets machinery – there are Steampunk clubs and fes@vals all over the world, where people dress up in vintage clothing combined with cogs, chain and mechanical pieces. Antonis’ designs incorporate this look. Visit the website, amandasofmogo.com.au for images and details of the individual workshops. Bookings can be made for workshops, or a complete workshop package, along with an op@on of accommoda@on at Corrigans Cove Resort, the venue for the event. Organiser and business owner, Amanda Williams, said “I am thrilled to have such a talented and sought-aKer interna@onal ar@st as Antonis to teach this intensive three-day program. “Mixed media is deďŹ nitely on trend and the opportunity to combine these workshops with the aIrac@on of the beau@ful Eurobodalla coastline here in Batemans Bay, oers what will be a unique crea@ve experience. Corrigans Cove Resort is an excellent venue for the quality of its facili@es, its loca@on opposite the beach and proximity to shopsâ€?. Amanda added, “In the 20 years of running my business I’ve never seen such a rise in popularity as I have in mixed media. It appeals to a broad spectrum of both ar@sts and paper craKers, due in part to the wide and varied range of techniques it encompasses. Response to the workshops is excellent so we encourage anyone interested in ďŹ nding out more and booking a package to enrol at www.amandasofmogo.com.au or contact the store on (02) 4474 3453 between 9am and 5pm seven days a weekâ€?.
