Editorial Welcome to this week’s editorial, Just over 10 months from the next Local Council elec6on and things are become a li>le unravelled for our Vol 16 September 15th 2017 councillors as they 28 December 7th,come 2017 under close scru6ny for the li>le that they have personally achieved in the past Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019 three years as measured by their campaign promises. The unofficial announcement today of the Eurobodalla Rural Lands Strategy has been finally signed off a9er years of wai6ng might be seen by the Mayor as a feather in her cap however the recogni6on should sit firmly on the shoulders of the countless Eurobodalla Planning staff who have worked through the maze of protocols and red tape for eight years or more. The same can be said of today’s announcement of $25.6m of NSW State funding for the Tuross River dam as a considerable contribu6on to the es6mated $100m project. While the current councillors migh tlike to take credit for such an announcement once again the accolades should go to the local Member for Bega who has secured the contribu6on. The same accolades should also befall the local member for the Batemans Bay Bridge project, the Spine Road intersec6on, securing the funding for the proposed Eurobodalla Regional Hospital and all of the sundry works that have injected nearly $500m into our local economy which includes the proposed Mackay Park Centre. This week sees Council lodging a Development Applica6on for the project iden6fying it as a $49.5m project. The DA required addi6onal documents to be lodged including a geo-technical report, that, un6l now, was considered confiden6al. At every turn of this project Council have gone out of their way to make things ‘confiden6al’. They established a confiden6al Sunset Commi>ee that kept confiden6al minutes and held confiden6al mee6ngs to discuss confiden6al things. They consulted confiden6ally with selected local groups to form a very confiden6al Aqua6c Strategy that determined the demise of the Batemans Bay 50m pool. Council then lodged two grant applica6ons that they fought tooth and nail to keep confiden6al under a freedom of informa6on request that would reveal the Business Case they provided. With the new plans now lodged the updated business case remains Strictly Confiden6al. Unfortunately for Council there is enough informa6on available to reveal that should they proceed with the Mackay Park Centre as it is they will need to find $2m to $3m per year from ratepayers to cover loses. Ten months out and the current councillors have li>le to show for their 6me other than their $1m payments for being rubber stamps to staff recommenda6ons. Having delegated all of their responsibili6es to staff one wonders what reason the councillors have in standing unless it is for $$ . Un6l next—Lei Beagle Editor……..

Funding For Safe And Secure Water Vol 16 September 15th 2017 In The 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019 Eurobodalla Member for Bega Andrew Constance has today announced that the NSW Liberals & Na6onals Government is inves6ng more than $26.3 million into the Eurobodalla to improve water quality and security as part of its $1 billion Safe and Secure Program. Mr Constance said the NSW Government is inves6ng $25.6 million for the design and construc6on of the Eurobodalla Southern Water Storage, which will add 3,000 Megalitres of water storage to the Eurobodalla region,” Mr Constance said. The Eurobodalla Southern Storage project will provide long term water security for the region once built, which is vital to areas such as ours during long periods of dry weather. “The Program priori6ses key water infrastructure projects – from local drought backup systems through to new or upgraded dams to secure water supplies for our regional communi6es. “The NSW Government will con6nue to work with local councils like Eurobodalla Shire Council to provide water infrastructure that improves the lives of locals.” Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said NSW communi6es depend on access to clean water, and wastewater infrastructure that meets environmental and health standards. “This drought is outside the history books, while we con6nue to invest in emergency water infrastructure we must ensure we are maintaining our regional water infrastructure and inves6ng in the future of our communi6es,” Mrs Pavey said. “The Program priori6ses key water infrastructure projects – from local drought backup systems through to new or upgraded dams to secure water supplies for our regional communi6es. “The NSW Government will con6nue to work with local councils as the u6lity provider to provide water infrastructure that improves the lives of locals.” Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said “This funding is just so cri6cal to the future water security and economic growth of the Eurobodalla. The new storage also means improved environmental outcomes for the Tuross River and be>er support for our farmers who also rely on the river.” The Safe and Secure Water Program is a $1 billion regional infrastructure co-funding program established in 2017 under the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Fund. beagle weekly : Vol 124 October 11th 2019

Surf Beach downgraded to POOR In the latest DPI&E State of the beaches 2018-2019 report Eurobodalla beaches scored well with the excep6on of Surf Beach which was down graded from a Good to a Poor. One of only ocean beaches categorised as Poor in NSW Surf Beach was downgraded to Poor from Good as the water quality at this site, according to the report, is occasionally impacted during dry weather and o9en a9er rainfall. The report stated that while the microbial water quality has declined, it is only slightly above the threshold between Good and Poor. "As a general precau6on swimming should be avoided at ocean beaches during and for up to one day a9er rainfall, or if there are signs of stormwater pollu6on such as discoloured water, flowing stormwater drains or floa6ng debris."

Next Genera(on of Banknotes: $20 Enters General Circula(on From today (9th Oct 2019), people will begin seeing the new $20 as it enters general circula6on. The $20 is the fourth denomina6on in the new series of banknotes that have been released as part of an upgrade to banknote security. It follows the release of the $5, $10 and $50 banknotes over the past three years. The new $100 banknote is expected to be released in 2020. Governor Philip Lowe said, ‘This is a fantas6c new banknote, with world-leading security technology and iconic imagery. Among my favourite features are the topto-bo>om window and the kookaburra, whose wings move up and down as you 6lt the banknote. It also provides a great opportunity to tell stories about people and organisa6ons who have contributed to our past and present. One side of the banknote is dedicated to a convict turned astute business person, Mary Reibey, and the other to Reverend John Flynn and the wonderful Royal Flying Doctor Service.’ beagle weekly : Vol 124 October 11th 2019

Eurobodalla Rural Lands Strategy finally Vol 16 September 15th 2017 signed off7th, 28 April December 2017 Vol 48 27th 2018 Vol 111 July 12th 2019

The NSW Government has approved changes to Eurobodalla’s local planning rules to provide certainty and opportunity for farmers, landholders and businesses; while con6nuing to protect na6ve flora and fauna. Member for Bega Andrew Constance said Eurobodalla’s Local Environmental Plan now reflects Council’s Rural Lands Strategy, which sets out a 20-year vision for the Shire’s rural lands. “The Rural Lands Strategy is a fantas6c result for our en6re region and I thank Mayor Liz Innes and the Rural Lands Commi>ee, along with our community for bringing about this fantas6c result for Eurobodalla. “Changes have been made to planning controls, such as zoning, land uses and lot sizes to encourage a vibrant commercial agriculture sector, increase rural living opportuni6es and support the growth of rural business opportuni6es. “With its beau6ful beaches, plen6ful parks and fer6le farmlands, Eurobodalla Shire truly is one of our State’s more enviable places to live, work and visit,” Mr Constance said. Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes welcomed the approval of the amended local plan. “This is such a great news story for the Eurobodalla, and I am looking forward to seeing us reach our economic poten6al as we now have greater opportunity for rural producers to map our region as an amazing food tourism des6na6on,” Ms Innes said. “This approval is the culmina6on of years of consulta6on and strategic planning and brings to life our Rural Lands Strategy. Mr Constance said “development will s6ll go through the same rigorous assessment process it always has. However this Rural Lands Strategy will provide op6ons and opportuni6es that support tourism and rural economic development, whilst con6nuing to adhering to state and federal planning and environment legisla6on. “The Government carefully considered seven sites iden6fied by the NSW RFS to ensure fire trucks are able to gain access to future rural proper6es, that requirement has been met,” said Mr Constance.

Record new low price for woodchip logs revealed in Parliament this week Vol 16information September 15th New on2017 woodchip log prices 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 2018 111April July 12th 2019 revealed to27th Parliament this week shows that prices paid by the industry are at record low levels.

“Just when we thought that price paid by the chipmill for woodchip or pulp logs could not get any lower, this new information shows that they are virtually free,” according to Harriett Swift, convener of the Chipstop campaign. Ms Swift said: an answer to a Question on Notice in Budget Estimates provided this week has revealed that the “average residual value, or stumpage price” has dropped to a new record low of $3.72 per tonne. It was previously Above: a typical truckload of pulp logs is now worth less $4.60. than $150 “Stumpage” is usually defined as the value of a standing, living tree in the forest. “This means that for a typical log truck heading south to the chipmill, the total value of the load (net of logging and haulage costs) is less than $150. “A tree may be worth next to nothing to the Forestry Corporation, but as home to hundreds of living wild creatures who depend on it for shelter and food, it is priceless. “It is also appalling at a time when the earth needs standing forests as carbon stores and protectors of soil and water resources. “Give-away prices like this are nothing short of scandalous. What other industry benefits from public assets virtually given away, with no responsibility to repair the environmental damage it does?” She said that the Forestry Corporation has recently started to use a “delivered price arrangement” for logs from the Southern Region which includes the “stumpage price”, together with costs of logging and haulage. “It has taken numerous questions in Parliament to unravel how the new pricing system actually works, but this week’s answer to Greens MP, David Shoebridge has now shed some light on it.” “It is just incredible that the State Government would allow the Forestry Corporation to give away these assets so cheaply,” Ms Swift said. beagle weekly : Vol 124 October 11th 2019

Local History Needs Support The President of the South Coast History Society, Peter Lacey, has called for more support for local history from the South Coast community. Addressing the monthly Men’s Breakfast at St John’s Anglican Church in Bega last Vol 16 September 2017 that the South Coast has an unusually interes6ng, an unusually extensive history. weekend, Peter15th suggested 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

“And there is evidence of it everywhere, once you know where to look,” he said. “Our community is doing a reasonable job documen6ng and storing that history, but a less-than-sa6sfactory job in then sharing it with others. This is a calamity because the community would benefit enormously if our local history was more widely promoted.” Peter presented Bega’s main street, Carp Street, as an example. “Carp Street is historically important and, thankfully, much of its interes6ng streetscape is s6ll intact. And there are hundreds of absolutely fascina6ng stories associated with many of the buildings and monuments along Carp Street - but there is not one single plaque anywhere along that street that presents these histories, and there is not even something as simple as a series of QR codes that leads to informa6on about those buildings and the colourful histories that are associated with them.” “This is an enormous tragedy because, for example, we are providing absolutely no incen6ve at all to any visitor to the town to walk down Carp Street and appreciate what is there…and, while they are doing so, perhaps pop into a café to have a coffee, or to have a look at what some of the town’s other retailers have on offer – and that, surely, would substan6ally benefit the town.” Peter then suggested that significant community funding should be made available regularly for be>er promo6on of the South Coast’s history. “I find it odd that, for example, Bega Valley Shire Council funds the opera6ng costs of a substan6al visual arts gallery and pays the salaries of its 1½ full 6me staff. But, at the same 6me, Council provides absolutely no funding for the preserva6on and promo6on of our local history: absolutely nothing to help the 12 museums and volunteer-based history socie6es in the Shire, absolutely nothing to enable promo6on of our wonderful history… and the Shire now doesn’t even have a Local History Librarian!” “Our local history is so important and deserves far, far be>er than this. I’d, therefore, like to see a plan developed by our community to be>er promote and present our history – u6lising up-to-date approaches and media – and for the necessary funding to then be provided to enable it to be implemented.” “A9er all, if funding can be provided to promote local tourism and funding can be provided locally to promote visual arts, why can’t funding – and a similar amount of funding - also be provided to promote our extremely important, excep6onally interes6ng, local history? Council would provide a great service to its community and ratepayers if it was to ini6ate discussions leading to such a plan, and Council is probably the appropriate community organisa6on to now do so,” Peter suggests. “The South Coast community IS very interested in its history,” Peter said. “We only need to look at the extremely posi6ve community reac6on to the establishment of the South Coast History Society three years ago and to its regular publica6on of ‘Recollec6ons’, and to the community’s high level of interest in the Bega Shire’s Hidden Heritage project, to acknowledge that.” “But the next challenge needs a whole-of-community commitment. Whilst the South Coast History Society has indisputably had successes with its ‘Recollec6ons’ publica6on and Bega Shire’s Hidden Heritage project, proper promo6on of the South Coast’s history is, in reality, far too big an ask of a small, volunteer-based organiza6on such as ours. That is, unless we were to receive a very substan6al endowment that would enable us to assemble the resources to be able to do so!” Peter added. beagle weekly : Vol 124 October 11th 2019

reading Shire-wide news extracts from the Moruya Examiner of 11th October 1919, provided by the Moruya & District Historical Society: WE understand that a considerable area of land has been taken up on the coastline between Bodalla and Congo by a couple of Moruya silica Vol 16 September 15th 2017enthusiasts. 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 2019

BLACKSMITHING. – Mr. A. Millikin has secured the services of a good general and permanent smithy, Mr. Dickinson, from Cowra, who is used to all classes of this work. MOTORING. – Den6st R. N. Bull has disposed of his “Star” car to a Sydney firm and purchased a 25 h.p. single seater “Regal.” A mechanic is expected to arrive with the new ”venture” in a few days. A GENEROUS SPIRIT. – Inadvertently the Presbyterian Church Commi>ee and the Pony Club adver6sed a Fair and a Dance respec6vely for 8th Nov. Upon consulta6on the Church very kindly gave way to the Club, and have now arranged to hold their postponed func6on on 15th Nov. Through this generous act the sportsmen to a man in this district show their apprecia6on by patronising the Scotch Fair and making it a bumper success. MEDICAL EXAMINATION. – The “Examiner” offers its congratula6ons to Edward and Phillip Stormon, of Eurobodalla, who passed their second degree examina6on in medicine at Sydney University. Noel Lawler, of Cadgee, also passed his third degree examina6on. These three successful young men received their primary educa6on at the Eurobodalla Public School under the clever tui6on of Mrs. J. Johnston, and a9erwards at St Joseph’s College, Hunter’s Hill. DROWNING FATALITY. – On Wednesday a9ernoon a sad fatality occurred at Coila, when Grace, a six-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Newman, met her death by drowning. About 4 p.m. Mrs Newman saw the child playing outside, but twenty minutes a9er she had disappeared. A search was made and the body was found at the bo>om of an underground tank, the top of which had been le9 open. The funeral took place yesterday a9ernoon, the remains being interred in the Church of England por6on of Moruya cemetery. A RARE CHANCE. – By advt. it will be seen that our district ladies will have now an opportunity of obtaining something chic in the way of blouses and underclothing. Mrs. Zerni, representa6ve of the Direct Distribu6on Co., Sydney, will have open for display at Carden’s Royal Hotel today (Saturday) some of the richest and dain6est “preYes” obtainable outside the city. TENNIS. – EUROBODALLA v MORUYA. The above closely contested match eventuated last Saturday on the local court before a good sprinkling of onlookers. The spor6ng spirit is waking up in the tennis world. Let it not lag. The trouble is when the spirit is willing among the players themselves, drawbacks in other direc6ons place obstacles in travelling to other centres, a ma>er to be deplored, as teams will not visit Moruya if not visited. Visitors from everywhere dwell on the fact of Moruya’s dullness; and it is likely to remain so, where the spor6ng spirit does not prevail on all sides. So, wake up, Moruya townspeople and let us have tennis, cricket matches, etc. The small surrounding centres afford an object lesson in this regard. NAROOMA. – (From our Correspondent) A unique football match was held here on Saturday last, which caused considerable interest among local people. The contes6ng teams were the employees of Mitchell’s sawmill and MacMillan’s sawmill. Much physical culture was exhibited on both sides. The stakes were the losers to pay for the tea. The results were Mitchell’s 3, McMillan’s nil. At the close of the match both teams proceeded to the Narooma Hotel, where tea was provided, about 80 siYng down. beagle weekly : Vol 124 October 11th 2019

THE BUTLER USA 2012 132 mins M Director: Lee Daniels Writers: Danny Strong, Wil Haygood (ar6cle) Stars: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, John Cusack

Cecil Gaines was a sharecropper’s son who grew up in the 1920s as a domes6c servant for the white family who casually destroyed his. Eventually striking out on his own, Cecil becomes a hotel valet of such efficiency and discreteness in the 1950s that he becomes a butler in the White House itself. There, Cecil would serve numerous US Presidents over the decades as a passive witness of history with the American Civil Rights Movement gaining momentum even as his family has troubles of its own. As his wife, Gloria, struggles with her addic6ons and his defiant eldest son, Louis, strives for a just world, Cecil must decide whether he should take ac6on in his own way.

Stuart Whitelaw & Gillian Wilde At Gallery Bodalla Gallery Bodalla has opened for the summer season with recent bodies of by Stuart Whitelaw Breath of the Lotus, and Gillian Wilde Volwork 16 September 15th 2017 28 December 7th, 2017 Vol 48 April 27th 2018 111 July 12th 2019 Twinkle and Trust and will run through to Sunday 27 October. In this show Gillian con6nues to explore the use of collage and watercolours in her quest to sensi6vely capture the personali6es of birds. As she explores her passion for the natural world, Gillian seeks to catch flee6ng yet instantly recognisable moments of delight. The tensions are underlined by the use of space, unusual angles and viewpoints, allowing the subject to flow beyond boundaries. While Stuart’s body of work chronicles a year in the life of the lotus in the dam next to his studio, with outstanding pastels on canvas. “I hope the works convey my sense of wonder of the many aspects of this life form (that some6mes seems other worldly). My 6tle for the exhibi6on refers to the event that started this series, when I saw the lotus exhaling through a small pool of water collected on its leaf,”

The Literary Salon returns for its fourth year and first at the Bas. This popular event, launched in 2016, has gone from strength to strength and this year The Bas are pushing the envelope further by including musicians for the first 6me. Writers will birth a crea6ve text to be passed to either a visual ar6st or a musician for reinterpreta6on. The result? a mixed media extravaganza of visual and sound pieces. Salon events Friday 11, 18 and 25 October, 6-8.30pm Join in for three salon events where writer-ar6st and writermusician pairs will present and speak to their 2019 Literary Salon works.

fishing

Your Up to Date fishing report from the7th, team Vol 16 September 15th 2017 at Tackle World 28 December Vol 48 111April July 27th 12th 2018 20192017 Moruya Moruya River The fishing in Moruya river remains the same coming into the weekend. Look for areas of slime free sand to tempt the ever increasing numbers of bream, whi6ng and flathead that have shown up with the warmer water to keep the holiday makers entertained. The flats on the lower part of the river have seen an increase in flathead ac6vity, with so9 plas6cs and baits being the stand out op6ons. There are s6ll plenty of big whi6ng under the bridge for those wan6ng to try their luck. Nippers, lightly weighted and dri9ed with the flooding 6de should work. Tuross River As expected, the Tuross system is again the first system to really start to wake up. Good reports of flathead towards the front of the system con6nue to filter through. Young Canberra angler Nick Moss picked up his first ever flathead on a 2.5” Zman Slimz plas6c in Motor oil in front of the Marine Rescue shed. His first ever flathead went a solid 68cm, nice work Nick! Plenty of other flathead were also caught on the flats this week, again on plas6cs and even surface lures! Up around 4-ways, reports of jewfish have also surfaced. Tuross is a system well known to hold good jewfish, if you know where to look. Bigger plas6cs, deep diving lures, fresh baits, or good quality frozen baits can all be the undoing of these enigma6c and tasty species. Be prepared to put some 6me in working these fish out though - they don’t come easily! Rock and Beach Salmon con6nue to keep the beach brigade happy this week. Fish to around 60cm are in amongst the schools. Try the southern beaches for best results. The headlands are also holding numbers of smaller salmon and the usual bream, luderick and drummer. Arma metal lures and surface lures can account for the salmon, while baits will account for the other species. Please be sure to take your rubbish with you. There is nothing worse than turning up to your favourite ledge or stretch of beach, only to find it li>ered with empty bait packaging and discarded fishing line. If you can carry it in, please carry it out. Offshore The offshore fishing has been good to say the least. Plenty of holiday makers, and locals have reported good fish coming over the sides. Snapper, large flathead, mowies and even large gummy sharks have all been reported. Start looking in as li>le as 20m of water for the flathead, and 40-50m over reef and broken ground for the snapper and mowies. Adam Weston landed his PB snapper this week weighing in at 3.5kgs. Pics of his fish are on the Tackle World Moruya page.
