Power Independence with Solar Batteries

Over half of all Australian homes will have batteries for energy storage in the next ten years... The new trend in solar power is to include battery storage and generate enough power for day and night use. With energy prices rising by 17% or more on the 1st of July, the intelligent option is to vote with your feet and begin to take control of your own power production with investment in the latest solar energy revolution.

Australia is way behind the world in the development of cheap, renewable energy with the coal and gas lobby blocking any new clean energy development. This is making Australian power costs among the highest in the world, leaving household to fend for themselves using solar power to offset rising electricity costs.

24 Hour Solar Power

With Feed in Tariffs now ridiculously low, there is no point left in sharing solar power with the grid. At 6 cents per kWh it is not equitable to export power when you have to buy your energy back later at 30 cents. Solar Power Battery Storage is the best way to beat the unfair electricity network and create energy independence today. 888 Solar Tek, a local solar company based in the Northern Rivers, is providing revolutionary new technology that slashes the cost of battery storage, providing 24 hour solar power to homes. With custom designs based on your energy use, they maximise the benefits of your investment and deliver a cost effective solution for your power needs. They offer a free energy assessment and are delivering hybrid and off-grid power systems that are much cheaper than buying from the grid.

888

The End of Support for Solar NSW Solar Bonus Ends This Year!

Government subsidies for solar export to the grid will end this year in NSW. If you are you one of the smart people in the Northern Rivers who are benefiting from the 60 cent per kWh export you will need to make plans for the coming changes. Payments under this plan expire at the end of 2016, leaving solar owners with 4 - 6 cents for each kWh exported after then. 20,000 homes in the Northern Rivers will have to install new meters to be able to use the power they now export entirely to the grid. 888 Solar Tek, your local hybrid and off-grid solar experts, have developed a smart migration plan, which will eliminate 80% or more of your ongoing power charges. They can install additional solar panels and battery storage now, to cover all of your daily energy use, slashing power charges.

The Truth About the

Every cent of the Solar Bonus generated by your existing system is collected right up until the end of the scheme, when both system are combined. Your new hybrid solar system allows greater independence and typically pays for itself in 3-5 years. 888 Solar Tek tailor the new solar system around your existing equipment and provide 12 months free monitoring and support. If you have very low electricity usage you may choose to go off the grid altogether to eliminate fixed supply charges that make up a large part of your bill. 888 Solar Tek have new technologies that can operate both on and off the grid. This makes staged transition to energy self-sufficiency cost effective and avoids costly equipment change-over.

REAL Cost of Solar Batteries...

The Gel-acid batteries were much cheaper to buy, lasted longer and could be configured in many different sizes to better match each home's energy use. They do not explode if over charged like Lithium Ion, are compatible with all inverter and charger systems and have a welldeveloped re-cycling program. Gel-acid batteries have been tried and tested over decades and, with fifth generation desulphation technology, are the lowest cost and best value battery available.

Many new battery technologies have leapt into the solar arena and early adaptors have had mixed reports about the real value of their performance. Not all that glitters is gold and some of the best PR campaigns have hidden the real cost of new solar batteries. The real test for new battery technologies is measured by their ability to deliver a cost per stored kWh below grid price. Every battery has a life span in the number of cycles of charge and discharge they can achieve before they lose capacity, with 60% being the standard for end of life. The cost of batteries divided by the cycle life gives the best measure of their value.

888 Solar Tek is the leading supplier of Gel acid batteries and hybrid and off-grid solar systems in the Northern Rivers and one of the few solar companies that offer custom battery sizing based on your power use. They retro-fit batteries to existing systems and provide cost benefit analysis based on your current and projected power costs. With local, personalised service and an ethos to always look after their customers' needs first, 888 Solar Tek are the number one choice for solar battery systems in the Northern Rivers.

Other than the special feeling you get from being the first boy with the new toy, all of the Lithium Ion batteries on offer fail to satisfy, none of them delivering stored energy for less than the cost of buying it direct from the grid. Some like the BYD Mini, featured in recent TV ads on the North Coast, cost over twice as much as buying power from the grid!

Why pay for electricity when it is cheaper to make your own?

888 Solar Tek is the top-selling retailer for solar battery systems in the Northern Rivers. We supply customised new or retrofit systems to match your power use - not a one size fits all package. You get personalised service with free 12 month system monitoring. The electricity grid is a huge monopoly that serves the large generators and retailers. Selling your solar power for 6¢ per kWh or less is unfair! Beat the network by generating and storing all of your own power now. Call us for free, honest advice before you buy anywhere else.

NSW Solar bonus scheme ends this year!

The Sanden EcoÂŽ Hot Water Heat Pump System use up to 78% less energy than conventional electric water heaters. Quicker and easier to install than solar, you get the savings right away. Sanden is the most efficient and eco-friendly hot water heat pump system on the market, offering up to 50% faster heat recovery than its competitors. Call us for all your Solar Hot Water needs on 02 6688 4480.

Only Motoma Gel-acid batteries with an Australian invented de-sulphation device which increases their lifespan by years, deliver a storage cost well below the grid price.

You may not of noticed yet, but your power bill just went up by over 17% on the 1st of July. We all know we are getting ripped off by the electricity networks and that it will only get worse. As the rage grows, many people are seriously looking at getting batteries for their solar systems to be more independent from the bloodsucking grid now.

The newly proposed waterslides offer reduced heights, noise buffers and more green areas, but what do our Councillors think?

people voicing their support for this redevelopment,” he said. Areas of concern during the denial of the initial application included “unacceptable noise impacts to surrounding residents and environment” and “unacceptable visual impacts along Tweed Coast Road and to the neighbours”. However, Mr Bedel said he has sought to address these concerns by reducing the height of the waterslides from 8.5 metres to 8.2 metres and installing a 1.8 metre noise barrier at the eastern side. “Furthermore, the colour of the slides has been altered to exclude bright colours. Otherwise the development is the same as that previously assessed by Council,” Council’s Planning Meeting documents stated. In addition, Mr Bedel has also supplied Councillors with supporting letters from 1,322 park guests and locals as well as 39 letters with 56 signatures from residents of the caravan park. The applicant has also indicated that “should the refusal of the application not be overturned with this 82A Review, the applicant will proceed to lodging an appeal against Council’s refusal of the application.” “Therefore, the options contained in this report include the defending of any appeal lodged by the applicant in the Land and Environment Court. “The original development proposal was generally consistent with relevant environmental planning instruments and Council policy requirements. The development is considered to remain suitable for the subject site through this review of determination, given its permissibility at this location and its nature, being an ancillary component to the existing caravan park. “Conditional development consent of the application is recommended.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you think the waterslide redevelopment at BIG4 North Star Holiday Park in Hastings Points should be approved?

AN APPLICATION to redevelop two waterslides at the BIG4 North Star Holiday Resort and Caravan Park in Hastings Point is back on the agenda for Tweed Shire Councillors to re-consider during tonight’s (December 1) planning meeting. Previous Tweed Shire Councillors refused the application to remove the current two existing waterslides and the installation of two larger and longer enclosed slides at the northeast side of the site, adjacent to the Tweed Coast Road site boundary. The original application was lodged in December 2015 and Council resolved to refuse the development application at the Planning Committee meeting of Thursday, July 7. Although recommended for conditional approval by Council staff, Councillors voted to refuse the development for reasons such as being an “overdevelopment of the site” and “not in keeping with the low-key village scale character”. The Weekly spoke with BIG4 North Star Holiday Resort owner Ian Bedel on Monday about his views. Mr Bedel said he would be taking his five-minute opportunity to speak directly to Councillors and the Council gallery during tonight’s community access meeting. Mr Bedel said he was not attempting to attract new patrons or to even expand his business – “it’s more a matter of survival for the local business”. “With competition from Bali and overseas, as well as recent trends in pop up waterparks, it’s difficult for us to compete,” he said. “Our current slides are more than 25 years old and in order to meet our client’s expectations and continue to create an environment that’s exciting and entertaining for the whole family, we need this redevelopment to go through.” Mr Bedel said he had been inundated with thousands of letters and emails of support. “The support has been overwhelming with so many

Airport contamination report raises concerns Finally, eight years after it was confirmed perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) had contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater at the airport, Airservices Australia (AA) released a preliminary report on November 15. However, beyond the gloss of AA’s media release and on review of the reports it raises more concerns than put them to rest. There is extremely limited information (released reports) with only one monitoring event in July beyond the fire training site and to the east and any assumption by AA that the contamination is not a matter for concern is misleading. Interim guideline criteria for water re ecological and human health levels for Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are 0.023-0.5 ug/L, recreation 5ug/L. It has come to light a number of reports that included significant findings and recommendations on the fire training site (within the lower Tweed River catchment) had not been disclosed and the groundwater levels of PFOS have fluctuated between 3.36 to the extraordinary level of 2280 ug/L over an 8 year period. The matter of PFC contamination of sites that is emerging across Australia needs to be managed by an independent body so that conflicts of interest and cover-ups do not compromise the human health risks to our communities and impacts to our vital water resources - and on our doorstep, we need our Federal and State elected representatives on both sides of the border to stand up and lobby for an

Round House site deserves better As a resident of Murwillumbah I applaud the unanimous decision by Council to deny the application by Coles to build yet another service station in town. Having worked for many years in senior management with the large retailer in charge of maintenance of all QLD and Northern NSW service stations, I know first-hand the environmental hazards these developments can present. A Coles Express is just a mini supermarket which will only squeeze the already suffering small retailers to increase the Coles brand in town. This high-profile entrance to our town deserves a development which will enhance and beautify the area and not create traffic congestion, potential environmental hazards which will occur if another service station is allowed here. Coles have deep legal pockets and from experience I cannot see them accepting this decision without a fight. Andrew Bennett, Murwillumbah

Bugger all this political correctness, let’s talk Recently Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young called Peter Young MHR a ‘racist bigot’ in parliament and was forced to withdraw the insult – only to hear her say “honestly, I believe it.” Then a Greens colleague called Mr Dutton a ‘racist’ and she called on his sacking. On Monday at question time Mr Dutton referred to problems with those from a Lebanese or Muslim background and he referred to the programme by the Fraser government in 1976 called the ‘Lebanese concession’. And he also referred to terrorist related offences, the majority of which were from second and third generation Lebanese backgrounds. The fact is Australia has a disproportionate number of Islamist Jihadis. In fact, in 2014 Australia was a leader per capita of supplying Western fighters in Syria and Iraq. Underlining Minister Dutton’s speech (for discussion) was the

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals call by Labor and the Greens as an attempt to stifle free speech and he being branded a ‘racist’. The political correctness has gone too far. Warren James, Tweed Heads

Support the community’s decision on Black Rocks Chris Cherry’s campaign promise was “community led decisions”. At her first council meeting she broke this core promise by not voting for the Pottsville Men’s shed. The community had spoken with far more emails to council supporting the Men’s Shed than not. Chris Cherry decided to listen to the loudest voice, not the voice of the majority. As someone who voted for her I find this very disappointing. The fact is the Men’s Shed will save koalas. The Blacks Rocks KAP is 271ha in size which has a large amount of land available to revegetate. This is due to 112ha of land put aside by the developer of Black Rocks for koala habitat and the 100’s of hectares of cleared exfaming land surrounding the oval, which will also be made koala habitat with the development of Dunloe Park. The Tweed Coast Koala Management Plan, notes that these large areas are the main concern for the Black Rocks KAP and does not mention the oval at all in the report. Koala groups and the community working with the Men’s Shed could create a base camp from which this work could be done. This would increase the number of trees planted and dramatically cut down the time it would take to plant the area out. I beg the councillors to read the council reports that have already been done and paid for, which provided the grounds the Men’s Shed was given approval. If they don’t listen to these reports, what was the point of using our money to have the reports done. If the shed was approved back in 2014 on the site that Katie Milne proposed, the Black Rocks oval, there would have been many more trees planted for koalas by now then destroying the oval and replanting it would achieve. David Norris, if you would like people to stop criticising and

offer their time to help the koala cause (TVW 24/11/2016), get out of our way so we can. Casey Walker, Pottsville

The complex issue of domestic violence Domestic violence is a complex social issue not fixed by scapegoating men. Women are engaged in domestic violence as well in violent speech and/or attitude. Admittedly they rarely resort to physical violence. Fixing domestic violence is as complex as enquiring into how humans are dehumanised, so more prone to negative emotions. As an example, at the most impressionable period of their lives many civilised babies are currently “born” without experiencing movement through the birth canal or adequate breast feeding. Both experiences are part of the human continuum or human species entelechy. Not experiencing human continuum needs, can be seen as a cause of human disquiet. Fixing the potential causes of civilised, human unease, requires a more in-depth enquiry than simplifying the problem by scapegoating men. Violence to women cannot be overcome with further violence: this time, to men. Geoff Dawe, Byrrill

Pottsville Men’s Shed questions left hanging Does anyone thing it strange that Tweed Council spent some $50K of its own resources preparing the development application for the Men’s Shed Pottsville without any certainty that a new Council would sign the lease? Or that the Men’s Shed paid a non-refundable deposit for the concrete slab also without knowing if the project would be ratified by a new council? Is this prudence or competent management? I think not. Lewis Rassaby, Tweed

Stop the delays and fix our boardwalk

being opened before the school holidays. Council officers have been consulting with various engineers since May 2016 and they know that our Boardwalk can be repaired quickly. Such repairs might also prolong our boardwalk longer than the three years forecasted. I request the administration of council to stop their procrastination about this prompt repair. Why delay, when these repairs are necessary for the school holidays and tourism enjoyment. When prompt action is taken by council’s administration, costed repairs could be completed by an outside tenderer before the Christmas work close-down period. These repairs will not hinder the council’s action, which continues with a further $20,000 investigation report for a longer lifespan for our Tweed Boardwalk. Our group of newly elected councillors would also appreciate the effort of council’s administration to complete this vexatious matter. I request continued support and awareness of our online petition at http:// chn.ge/2dPO27w Richard Heads

Backbone needed on Men’s Shed Council elections have come and gone and once again we end up with another four very weak Councillors who can’t make a decision on the Men’s Shed. The people of Pottsville deserve better than this, and know that the stalling is to appease the Greens, and Mr Norris, who want no part of the shed and want to revegetate the sports field against community wishes. When the next election comes around Councillor Cherry will be remembered for what she didn’t do for her Pottsville constituants, rather than any other achievements. Max Hall, Pottsville

Council responds to airport draft master plan TWEED COMMUNITY consultation around the Gold Coast Airport’s 2017 Preliminary Draft Master Plan will finish at the Tweed Civic Centre on Monday, December 6, from 2pm to 5pm. The final meeting comes as Tweed Shire Council was invited to comment on the draft plan via a letter from Council’s Director of Planning of Regulation Vince Connell. The letter will be discussed by Tweed Shire Councillors during their Planning Meeting tonight (Thursday, December 1). The letter praised certain areas of the airport stating that the expansion of the airport was “testimony to both the management of the facility and the popularity of the Tweed and Gold Coast as places to live, holiday or do business”. “As such, Council is supportive of initiatives which will improve the ability of the airport to meet this growing demand yet protect those important attributes which make the area such an attractive destination,” the letter reads. “We understand that the focus of the Master Plan is the continued expansion of the terminal to accommodate an increase in passenger numbers, and improvements to vehicle and aircraft movements, which will influence land use planning policies in Tweed Shire.” The letter points out that passenger numbers are expected to climb to 16.6 million by 2037 and with it a range of impacts that Tweed Shire Council and the airport will need to address at the earliest possible stages. “This will ensure that the ability of the airport to grow and meet the projected demands is considered through the strategic land use planning framework where at all possible,” the letter reads. However, the letter also outlines the Tweed community’s concerns about the potential impact of increased aircraft movements, changes to flight paths, the runway landing threshold, as well as environmental and Aboriginal cultural heritage issues which have previously been raised with Gold Coast Airport. Council’s ability to work with Gold Coast Airport to implement a strategic approach to land use planning and management of land affected by airport operations, with the purpose of interest in the draft Master Plan includes

the construction of a second access onto the Gold Coast Highway, which could also provide highway access to Cobaki. “Such access would provide an opportunity to develop land east of the Highway for employment opportunities within fields such as technology, education, research, logistics, aviation and health services, and establish a node for high end employment opportunities,” the letter reads. “Introduction of heavy and light rail facilities is also seen as positive for facilitating movement of both goods and passengers and will have broader implications for movement throughout the region, and is supported. “Any potential benefits of extension of light rail into the Tweed are matters that can be discussed in future joint meetings between Council and GCAPL.” But beyond the praise for the airport remained concerns about increased noise, chemical impacts to local waterways and the future expansion of Australia’s fifth largest airport. “Aircraft noise is perhaps the most significant issue affecting local Tweed residents and as such the ability of Council to implement strategic land use planning policies to minimise this impact is crucial to Council’s role in managing development of land adjoining the Airport,” the letter reads. “As such, the 2047 ANEF map will provide Council with the ability to refine its planning provisions to accommodate this change. “While installation of a high-intensity approach lighting system at the southern end of Runway 32 on land leased from the NSW Government is acknowledged, please be advised that this system is likely to require development approval under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. “Given the previous concerns of the local community to potential impacts of expansion of airport activities on the Tweed, it is suggested that additional sessions be conducted to enable the community opportunity to meet and discuss personal concerns at a location such as the Banora Point Community Centre.”

Former footy star Watts denied bail

MURWILLUMBAH LOCAL and former professional rugby league player Anthony Watts fronted Tweed Heads Local Court this week on charges relating to assault and dangerous driving. 30-year-old Watts was denied bail following a brief court appearance via video-link on Monday, November 28. Watts, who played for North QLD Cowboys in 2008, was accused of assaulting a man in Murwillumbah on Thursday, November 24. Police alleged that Watts waved a gun and assaulted William Woodford, 73, outside a Murwillumbah industrial centre business before driving off. Police added that Watts allegedly failed to stop when his car was spotted on Tweed Valley Way about two hours after the alleged assault. Police cancelled the pursuit and were able to track down Watts and arrest him later that day. Watts’ lawyer Andrew Moloney requested more time with his client and the matter was adjourned until January 9. According to NRL reports, Watts began his professional footy career at the Sharks in 2007 where he played five games before joining the Cowboys in 2008. He played 45 games for the Townsville-based club before signing a three-year deal with the Roosters. But Watts was allegedly involved in an incident while out with teammate Todd Carney and the pair were suspended indefinitely. Watts never played a game for the Roosters and eventually headed to England to play for Widnes. Injury meant he only played one game for the club and despite signing an extension for another season, he headed back to Australia for personal reasons. He then changed his focus to boxing. Watts won his first fight in under a minute, but later lost to Sharks captain Paul Gallen in December 2014. Half way into the opening round Watts’ shoulder dislocated and the fight was stopped with Gallen named the TKO winner.

Tweed health report

CLASSIC ORIGINAL AUSSIE BUSH POETRY

THE HEALTH of Tweed residents is falling drastically behind the national averages with obesity, smoking and alcohol levels all reaching risky levels, according to the new Australian Health Tracker. The Health Tracker, which was made available to health professionals and the media in late November, was developed as a digital platform by Victoria University and can be narrowed down to specific postcodes. A snap shot of Tweed’s health paints a grim picture with 69 per cent of Murwillumbah adults obese which is 7 per cent above the national average. Other areas of concern include high levels of alcohol consumption across the Tweed as well as alarming levels of diabetes, snokers and high rates of early deaths. However, it’s not all bad news with Murwillumbah region residents has good blood pressure low levels of cholesterol when compared to national averages. The Health Tracker will be used by policy makers and academics to provide localised data on chronic diseases and their risk factors at the local government, primary health network, population and state level. The data was based on modelling

estimates from the 2011 Australian Health Survey ABS and the average of the ABS Estimated Resident Population June 30, 2011 and June 20, 2012. “One in every two Australians has a chronic disease – however roughly 1/3 of these diseases are preventable,” coordinator of the Health Tracker digital platform Rosemary Calder said. “Australia’s Health Tracker by Area is a call to action and a resource to help protect the most important asset in the country – our health. “The numbers are estimates for an area, not measured events as are, as such they should be viewed as a tool that, when used in conjunction with local area knowledge and taking into consideration the prediction reliability, can provide useful information that can assist with decision making for small geographic regions.” What the modelled estimates do achieve, however, is to summarise the various demographic, socioeconomic and administrative information available for an area in a way that indicates the expected level of each health indicator for an area with those characteristics.

Dementia education session in Murwillumbah

SOCIAL FUTURES (formerly the Northern Rivers Social Development Council) in partnership with Alzheimer’s Australia NSW, is holding a free education session for families and friends caring for a person who is living with dementia in Murwillumbah this month. “Research from Alzheimer’s Australia has found that people with dementia and their carers experience significantly greater levels of loneliness compared to other Australians. It is really important, especially in light of these statistics, to ensure that people with dementia, their family and carers know that there is help out there,” says Gabe Morahan, Training Coordinator for Social Futures. “This free course will not only increase your knowledge, awareness and coping strategies but will connect you to available resources and to other people who are walking a similar path. You are not alone,” says Gabe. Dementia affects approximately one Australian in 10 aged over 65 years, and almost half of people over 80 years. Currently more than 353,800 people are affected by dementia, however by the year 2030 that number is predicted to rise to 591,500. Caring for someone with dementia can be physically and emotionally challenging. Dementia can influence a person’s behaviour including memory loss, wandering, depression, anxious or agitated states, aggression, hallucinations and false ideas, and loss of inhibition. Although these can be upsetting, there are many strategies that may help. This course will focus on providing an understanding of dementia and effective communication techniques for carers. The session will help carers to obtain a greater understanding of the condition and its impact. The course will take place at Murwillumbah Golf Club on Wednesday, December 7, from 9.30am to 2.15pm. Registration is essential and light refreshments will be provided. To register call Gabe Morahan on (02) 6617 0007.

A colourful Christmas for kids More care needed for those facing death, says Cancer Council NSW

CHRISTMAS TIME is a time of giving and the Tweed Coast Community Church is wanting to get kids involved in something that is fun and rewarding.

“We are so excited to be holding the first annual Tweed Coast Community Church Community Colour-in Competition. It is one way that we are looking to create a stronger sense of community here on the Tweed Coast,” Families Pastor Dennis Verner said. With kids spending so much time looking at screens these days, it certainly seems like a great idea to get kids to use a different part of their brain. Colouring is a simple activity that helps children to develop cognitively, psychologically and creatively. Some of the benefits of colouring are: Improved motor skills; assists school preparation; stimulates creativity; contributes to better handwriting; colour awareness, recognition and discernment; improved focus and hand to eye coordination; boundaries, structure and special awareness; improved confidence and self-esteem; better selfexpression; therapeutic as it can relieve stress. Senior Pastor Russell Hinds said: “At Tweed Coast Community Church, we love to give and this seemed like and awesome way to get kids involved in something positive, while giving them the opportunity to get a new bike for Christmas.” The Tweed Coast Community Church is building community by running a playgroup on Wednesday mornings 9:30am-11:30am for 5 and under. On Sundays the school age program “Top Spot” engages kids through music, games, craft, while learning skills to assist them to have positive relationships. The Early Years

SAMPLE program caters for children 2-5 years of age. The church also has a community hall for hire and the Second Chance Opportunity shop has served the community since 1995 offering quality goods at reasonable prices. Winners of the Colour-in Competition will be announce during a special Family Service on December 11 at 9:30am. There will be light refreshments and hamburgers after the service. Download the entry form and view prizes and conditions at www.tweedccc.com.au or search Facebook: Tweed Families. Entry forms can be lodged at the Second Chance Op. Shop. We hope to see you there 101 Cabarita Road Bogangar

CANCER COUNCIL NSW through its new “I Care for Palliative Care” campaign is making an urgent call to the NSW Minister for Health Jillian Skinner MP to end the shortage of specialist palliative care services across the state. In a media statement to The Weekly, Cancer Council NSW spokesperson Yonit Kittay said there were currently not enough palliative care doctors and nurses to meet the needs of the NSW community. “NSW needs 10 more full time palliative care physicians, at a minimum, to be brought in line with national palliative care recommendations,” she said. “NSW falls behind every other state and territory when it comes to the number of palliative care nurses per head of population, with Cancer Council NSW identifying that NSW needs 129 more full time palliative care nurses to bring us up to the standard of the rest of Australia. “To ensure Aboriginal people can access the care and support they need Cancer Council NSW is also calling for culturally appropriate palliative care for Aboriginal people.” Nerida Dean is a campaign volunteer and palliative carer from Kingscliff who has watched a family member pass away from breast cancer. Mrs Dean said she recognised how important palliative care is, so end of life can be as pain free as possible. “It is saddening to think that many people in NSW are unable to access specialist palliative care and support because there just aren’t enough staff to support them,” she said. “We know that the current palliative care doctors and nurses do a wonderful job, but

they are stretched to meet demands across the state. “It is a reality that, despite the hard work and dedication of researchers, cancer continues to take too many lives, young and old. “Palliative care services are an essential part of the care of the terminally ill, and of the families who support them, and we need more of them.” Mr Kittay said she believes that when someone has a terminal illness, they deserve the best possible palliative care, whenever and wherever it is needed. “Palliative care means people can keep doing the things they love for as long as possible and that families can make the most of the time they have left,” she said. “The NSW Government must take action now to close the gap in current palliative care services, and prepare for the increased demand for these services, as more people across the state are affected by chronic illnesses.” Community members across the Tweed and surrounding areas can support Nerida and the I Care for Palliative Care campaign by signing the pledge for Minister Skinner to end the palliative care shortage: www. canact.com.au/palliative_care_pledge

Winners announced Sunday 11th December during our Special Christmas Family Service 9:30 am, 101 Cabarita Rd.

NSW HEALTH Minsiter Jillian Skinner MP was contacted by The Weekly to respond to the Cancern Council’s concerns and she said the NSW Government remains committed to providing quality palliative care services across the state including in the Northern Rivers. “With the investment of at least $86 million in specialist palliative care services on an annual basis, the Government has made significant funding enhancements in community-based palliative care over the past four years to provide patients more choice in the care they receive at the end of their life,” Mrs Skinner said. “In NSW, specialist palliative care services are delivered in a range of settings including public and private hospitals, hospices, community clinics, residential aged care facilities and in the home. “They are provided in a networked arrangement, as specialist palliative care services support and complement the care provided by primary care services. “This allows some patients to have their palliative care needs fully met by a range of primary care and non-specialist palliative care options.” Mrs Skinner said local health districts are responsible for how palliative care services are configured and the model of care they provide, based on local service systems and community needs.

“The number of specialist medical and nursing staff alone is not necessarily a good measure of the extent to which the needs of people who are dying and their families and carers are met,” she said. “A networked approach, including arrangements such as formal partnerships, pop-up models, multidisciplinary care and consultative arrangements, can provide a coordinated and sustained coverage of palliative and end of life care. “A number of local health districts in NSW use such arrangements to deliver palliative care to their patients. “The NSW Government is committed to growing both the specialist palliative care and primary care workforce, and has allocated additional funding to support an additional 36 palliative care nurse educator and clinical nurse specialist positions to enhance palliative care service provision across NSW. “The allocation of these enhancement positions occurred in consultation with local health districts based on their identified priorities, needs and gaps. “Four nurse practitioner positions specialising in palliative care. “Seven additional palliative care physician training positions to grow the palliative care specialist workforce, including a combined medical oncology/palliative care position at Lismore Hospital.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe more palliative care employees are needed or should a “network approach” be adopted across the Tweed?

Cancer Council Relay for Life needs support Water extraction debate LOCAL TWEED Shire residents, Anna Nicholls and her Relay Team ‘The Flaming Marshmallows’ have kick-started their fundraising efforts for the upcoming Cancer Council NSW, Tweed Valley Relay for Life. The Relay for Life is an opportunity for the community to raise vital funds for Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services in the local area. Next year’s Relay will be on March 11-12, 2017, from 3pm at Cudgen Leagues Club, Kingscliff. Having experienced the impact of cancer herself and within her family, Anna sought the help of friends to raise funds for Cancer Council NSW to ensure there is ongoing research and support available for people undergoing a cancer diagnosis and treatment. “My father died of a brain tumour in 1998 when I was 23. During this time I engaged with some amazing individuals who enabled me to process things with patience and understanding. I want to do something that will help individuals and their families deal with this awful disease,” Anna said. “For me to be able to do something so small, to give my time is the least I can do in support of the Cancer Council NSW,” explains Anna.

“This year we are busy organising bigger and better fundraising initiatives for Tweed Valley Relay For Life, like pie drives, and selling baked food, raffle tickets and goodies. We are also holding a ‘High Tea’ and an ‘80’s Disco’ in the coming months,” said Anna. The Tweed Valley Relay For Life is a space for the community to unite in the fight against cancer. The vital funds raised at Relay support local services such as the Cancer Council Information Service at The Tweed Hospital which provides nurses with the support to assist up to 200 patients from the Far North Coast to Queensland. Cancer Council NSW is 97 per cent community funded and relies on the support of the community to continue funding ground breaking research and provide community services to ensure no one need to face cancer alone. “Do It!! Don’t hesitate, it’s not as scary as you may think. Have fun with it, raise funds doing things you enjoy with people you enjoy spending time with. Your fundraising doesn’t have to be something huge, whatever you feel comfortable with,” said Anna. To register or donate for the 2017 Tweed Valley Relay for Life visit www.relayforlife.org.au/tweed

The Flaming Marshmallows

A GROUP of Uki locals met on Rowlands Creek Road on Tuesday, November 29, to protest what some believe are contentious plans to extract 24 megalitres of water per year from a bore. The bore water that is later filtered for drinking is expected to be sold on to a soft drink company believed to be Coca Cola, who intends to bottle the water for purchase. There are currently several properties across the Tweed applying for an increase or commercial-style use of water extraction from their properties’ bore, including another example in Bilambil. Tweed resident Nick Cropp wrote to The Weekly on Monday about an Urliup Road residents at Bilambil who wants to put down a sixth commercial bore on his rural property. “I believe he wants to get his neighbour’s two bores transferred to irrigation bores and applying for a third bore so he can convert them to commercial bores to sign over. “So, nine bores pumping out about 120 megalitres of groundwater per year. “Bilambil valley is a spring fed valley with the creeks relying on underground springs for its existence. “He has now applied to Tweed Shire Council to upgrade Urliup Road, cutting down 100s of roadside native trees to allow 19-metre reticulated semi-trailer tankers seven days a week, 12 trips a day 7am to 6pm to thunder down a rural retreat road.” Meanwhile, Jack Hallam, a former minister and politician in the 80s, wants to extract a 24 megalitres of water from the existing bore at Uki, by large semi-trailer tankers to a commercial bottler and distributor. The proposal is for up to three loads per day, six days per week from 7am to 6pm. Mr Hallam’s neighbours say potential impacts on the area’s underground water supply were not addressed including heavy truck movements on the rural road which many believe will be impacted. In his submission, Mr Hallam’s consultant states that as the existing bore is currently licensed by the state, there is no requirement for further licensing.

Dial up collection hoped to clear trash A NEW plan to collect waste across the Tweed is hoped to reduce piles of garbage on the side of streets as the end of kerbside collection rolls out across the shire. But whether the new dial-up waste collection service will have a clean break from the biannual kerbside clean up from July next year, remains to be seen. The contract was awarded to Solo Resource Recovery at a cost of $15.9 million over three years. Parts of the Tweed were piled six feet high with household items this week ranging from old mattresses to former gym equipment and old furniture. Tweed Shire Councillors voted to introduce the dial-up waste collection service and exclude the biannual kerbside collection after complaints reached their highest last year. Tweed Shire Council’s waste management co-ordinator Rod Dawson said the new dial-up service would allow for better efficiency of removing rubbish throughout the community.

“Residents of the shire can phone up to the maximum of twice per year for the collection of bulky waste from their property,” Mr Dawson said. Mr Dawson said the council would arrange a time that was appropriate for the entire suburb and would conduct a pick-up service within 24 hours. “The tenders that have been awarded will keep the overall costs down and allows council to produce the green waste service at a reduced price compared to current collection contracts,” he said. During the November 17 council meeting, Mayor Katie Milne said she hoped the decision to introduce the dial-up service didn’t upset the community. “It’s a really big change for the shire,” Cr Milne said. “There’s debate whether they understand what they would be getting for that service.” Mr Dawson said residents had raised concerns about the removal of the kerbside service during public consultation in June 2015 but council had worked towards providing an assurance the dial-up service was the most appropriate for the shire.

Tree planting day at Cudgen

A COMMUNITY planting day will take place on Saturday, December 10, to complete a project to restore and protect waterways and valuable topsoil on the Cudgen plateau. Tweed Shire Council said residents are invited to be part of the tree planting morning, from 9am, as the final leg of the Restoring the Waterways of the Cudgen Plateau project to plant more than 8000 trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Council secured funding for the project from the NSW Environmental Trust late last year and has been working with six landholders on the plateau to minimise the loss of valuable topsoil from farms, improve aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity and connectivity and improve water quality in the local stream and Cudgen Creek. Next month’s planting day will complete the project and is being hosted by progressive Cudgen farmer Rob Prichard and Council. “With the help of bush regeneration contractor Basically Bushland Restoration, we’re hoping to plant 1000 rainforest trees, shrubs and groundcovers to capture sediment from the farm and provide habitat for beneficial insects and other fauna,” Council’s Program Leader - Sustainable Agriculture, Eli Szandala, said. “Much of the plateau is highly modified by traditional farming practices and devoid of native vegetation, so it is great to see young farmers such as Rob looking to improve soil conservation and biodiversity

on their farms.” Mayor of Tweed, Councillor Katie Milne, encouraged local farmers and the whole community to get involved in this important project. “The Cudgen Plateau is classified as State Significant Farmland due to its rich red soils. Keeping these soils healthy and intact is vital to maintaining the richness of this special landscape and assist our valuable farming community,” Cr Milne said. Council staff and bushland regenerators will be providing advice for local farmers and landholders on how to improve biodiversity and soil conservation practices on their properties. Information and demonstrations on effective weed control will also be available. Signs will direct participants to the planting site at 482 Cudgen Road, 1.5 km south of Cudgen village, and parking will be available along Cudgen Road. However, participants and motorists should take extra care on the roads during this time. Holes for the plantings will already be dug and participants are advised to bring drinking water, gloves, sun-safe clothes and covered footwear. The site has been registered on the National Tree Day website. See http:// treeday.planetark.org/site/10014398 for more details. Contact Council’s Project Officer Biodiversity, Aiden Sloman, on (02) 66702648 or asloman@tweed.nsw.gov.au for more information (RSVPs not essential but welcome).

Scammers are lifting their game Chamber appeals for

TWEED LOCAL Penelope Williams was recently a victim of an online scam and she’s now urging others to use the support of local businesses before agreeing to anything online. Ms Williams contacted The Weekly this week to warn others after she experience a nasty online experience. “After recently experiencing an online scam, I'd like to share with any who don't know, how to 'escape" with your peace of mind and money,” she said. “When your brain is compromised by shock, frozen as your computer screen; as panic and confusion narrows your options to consider that number and fall down the dark tunnel of scam coercion. “Innocently watching a music video on YouTube one night, my screen froze announcing in word and voice that my computer had been disabled by a severe criminal virus, Microsoft had been alerted and to ring this 1800 number for help. “Disbelieving, I repeatedly tried to close the screen and boxes with no luck. In shock and dread I eventually rang the number, arguing with a series of Indian men as to the cause of the problem and resisting their pressure to pay them to 'fix' it. “Eventually, I was beaten down and

in agony, gave my credit card details and an irretrievable payment of $2-300. After 2 hours of watching my screen remote-controlled by them, the 'job' was done. “I then found a website that confirmed my experience as a scam. I felt sick. Then finding the ScamWatch Australia website it was small comfort to fill out an on-line report of the experience. Mrs said thanks to Murwillumbah the friendly, compassionate staff of Precise PCs in Murwillumbah, I was educated on scam advice and my computer cleaned. “If your computer screen freezes with a message to ring a number or to buy or download software, the simple option for all browsers and computers is to hold down your computer's power button for 10 seconds which will force shutdown the computer. “Please note, any unsaved material will be lost. An extra defence against scams is to have AdBlock installed in your browser. “Some ads are a front for a scam and a stray cursor clicked on them can activate it.” For more detailed solutions, advice and education, see or ring: Precise PCs, 75 Wollumbin Street, Murwillumbah or phone (02) 6672 8300. Tweed Police have also issued a warning about scammers targeting the Tweed, see Police Beat in the classifieds.

Harold and Margaret’s 70 year milestone BANNORA POINT residents Margaret and Harold Moores celebrated 70 years of marriage on Wednesday, November 30, at RSL Care Darlington. The couple, who are originally from Manchester in the UK, said they are as in love with each other as the day they met. “I’m not sure what it was that kept us together,” Margaret said. “I think having common interests and doing things together that we both enjoy such as golf, bowls and dancing have helped.” Harold is an old romantic and loves to dance with Margaret at any chance he gets. “Dancing and enjoying each other’s company were important as well as sharing the same social circles,” he

said. The couple are active and social members of the Darlington aged care community and especially love to dance and remain social. Friends and family of the couple travelled from all over NSW to see them on their special day and celebrate the milestone. RSL Care also organised a cake with a photos of their wedding for them and a gift of crystal champagne glasses from staff and residents. The couple spent time catching up with friends and family while posing for photos and speaking with the media. Harold finished by saying he’s been glad for every day his had with his “beautiful wife”.

CHRISTMAS IS coming to Murwillumbah and Murwillumbah and District Chamber (MDBC) is encouraging locals to shop in Murwillumbah or Tweed for your Christmas presents this year. A fantasy Santa land will be set up in Murwillumbah Salvos with a Santa chair for Santa photos and photo opportunities from December 7 until Christmas Eve. President David Vincent said the Santa Land had been going for six years in the Main Street of Murwillumbah. “It is a MDBC project aiming to keep the locals in shopping in our town and keeping the money circling in our community,” he said. “The concept is simple. Money going out of our local community does not circulate back through to other businesses, to workers, to schools, charities and through the general community. “This contributes to making our town economically weaker and only we, as a community, can change that!” The MDBC project #buylocalmurwillumbah facebook and Instagram campaign is another way the MDBC are encouraging shoppers to stay locally. “Basically, if you are a local business, you can promote your sales and services for free on our Buy Local Murwillumbah facebook page or use #buylocalmurwillumbah in your posts. “Then when people search for local products, sales or specials, using the hash tag they can see it all in one place. The MDBC are also encouraging the CBD retailers to contribute to the magic of Christmas and decorate their shop windows. The MDBC has partnered with The Weekly for Best Christmas Window Display competition. The judging will be done by the Tweed Valley Weekly with winners announced at the Tweed’s Biggest Christmas Dinner Party- Tweed Foodie Fest December 3. Prizes include an advertising package from Tweed Valley Weekly. For more information about the MDBC 2016 Christmas Campaign go to www.murwillumbahchamber.com.au

Don’t Worry About: Pools of water under your car. These are caused by condensed water from the air conditioning system Smoke from air vents. Unless the smoke is acrid, it’s just water vapour produced by the air conditioning unit that hasn’t had time to condense. Roaring from the engine bay. This is the cooling fan turning on and off Less power. If your car seems more lethargic in summer, this is probably because the air is warmer and less dense, giving the engine a little less “oomph”.

On the flipside, you should be aware of the following: Tyres – high temperatures and underinflation exacerbate existing damage and weak spots, increasing the risk of punctures. Before setting off, check tyre condition and pressures on your vehicle, as well as anything you might be towing. Overheating – check your coolant reservoir, look for wet or white marks on coolant hoses and listen for the fan when your engine is idle. If you think anything’s amiss, have it looked at ASAP. Fuel efficiency – use a roof box and close windows on the motorway to reduce drag; start air conditioning when doors and windows are closed, and turn it off when the car has cooled; and increase tyre pressure if you’re carrying extra passengers. Glare – keep glass clean, repair scratches and chips, and wear non light-reactive sunglasses

Solar specialist Michael Le Messurier

Electricity bill shock is coming in 2017

TWEED RESIDENTS who are on the Solar Bonus Scheme could be in for a bill shock in 2017. The Solar Bonus Scheme finishes on December 31, 2016, which means that residents and business owners who took advantage of the scheme will be no longer able to receive the bonus. For those who don’t know, what this means is that electricity retailers will only pay between 6c/kW and 10c/ kW for solar power generated that isn’t used on site (net meter). Under the previous scheme, soon to expire, electricity retailers paid between 60c/kW and 20/kW whether you used the power on site or not (gross meter). However, before you start to worry there are a number of options that are possible in order to reduce the impact of the changes on your power bill: 1. Ensure your home is energy efficient – using more modern appliances and things like LED lighting 2. Be smart when you use your power – for example ensure washing and drying is completed during the day and or making sure your pool pump is running during the day when your solar panels are producing power 3. Add more solar panels to your existing system – this will depend on your current system and make up. Most systems are over 5 years old and solar panels have

progressed a long way in technology over this period meaning that you may need to replace your existing solar panels and inverter. There are Government rebates available on solar panels so this will reduce upfront cost. 4. Add battery storage – products such as the TESLA Powerwall enable you to store excess power generated from your solar panels during the day and then use that energy at night when the sun is not shining. For residents who do not have Solar now, Why? As a general rule for every 1kW of solar panels on your roof, Solar can save you up to $100 off your power bill. Power prices have been going up every year and will continue to do so. This year alone was approx 15 per cent. Combine this with excellent Government rebates means that buying a solar system now is a great way to reduce your power bill and to start your energy independence. The Solar Man is holding a free information evening on Wednesday, December 7, at South Tweed Community Hall to learn about battery storage technologies and how it can benefit you whether you have solar installed or are thinking about in the future. To find out more phone (07) 5523 2655 or email info@ thesolarman.com.au to reserve your place – places are limited.

Community support for autistic youth needed By: Luna Epeam

A KINGSCLIFF café owner and local behavioral specialist are teaming up to give autistic young adults practical work experience within their community. Mockingbird Café owner Joanne Jackson said the program is a stepping-stone between education and independence and encourages community engagement. “I want to use Mockingbird as a bridge from school or TAFE where they have often done many courses that leave them highly qualified but lacking in practical customer service experience,” Mrs. Jackson said. Samantha Reaper, who was the first student to complete the two days per week for one month work experience, said having Ms Jackson as a reference helped her to get her current job at the local Kingscliff Bakery. “It feels amazing having a job, you can save up more for whatever you like to do and like to buy,’ Miss Reaper said. ‘I am a firm believer there is a place for anybody and everybody in the workplace. “From my own experience in my own family, if you have disabilities, the most fearful thing is not having support.” One in 100 are diagnosed with autism affecting 230,000 Australians. ASPECT employment coordinator Victoria Houchin said there aren’t many opportunities for youths on the spectrum finishing school and government funding is lacking. “We are finding that there is a huge drop in support and many 18-year-olds end up with no support if they don’t get any Transition-to-Work or SLES funding,” Ms Houchin said. Kingscliff’s TLC Holistic Behavioral Strategies behavioral therapist Andrew Baines said the programs on offer lack community engagement. “There are lots of special programs available but the problem is they are exclusive and are missing out on the value of authentic human relationships,” Mr Baines said. “These kids are the children of our community and we need the community to open their doors and give the gift of work skills and employment,” Mrs. Jackson said. “We want to look after these kids and give them a springboard off into their lives.”

Backpackers find friends in Tweed Rare drop in steady hands AS BACKPACKERS visiting the Tweed await their new tax reforms from the Federal Government, Tweed locals are giving our friendly international visitors a helping hand. Whether it’s 15 per cent as proposed by the Coalition or Labor’s 10.5 per cent on backpacker wages, Murwillumbah local icon Phil Taylor thinks the lower the better as he has been helping keep our Tweed backpackers on the road. Sophie Hentzsch, 18, from Germany recently completed high school in her home town Wittenberg, about an hour east of Berlin. With little money and although on her own, she’s managed to make her way on the kindness of Aussie strangers. “She came down to the shop and said a Brisbane bloke told her to visit Phil Taylor and he could help her out,” Phil said. “Well I don’t know who the bloke is but he’s sending me a lot of work lately.” Sophie had been picking strawberries for more than three months which means she qualified to extend her visit. “I wanted to get out an explore,” she said as Phil checked over a dodgy van she bought in Byron Bay with almost 500,000klms on the clock. “It’s my first trip away from home and meeting Australians and their families has been amazing,” she said. Sophie was offered a job as a career with a Brisbane family. “They’re great, but I’d still like to get out a bit, that’s why I bought the van,” she said. The van cost Sophie $5,000 and a shocked Phil said he would not have paid a dime.

“It’s seen better days,” he said. “But we patched it up a lot and had to replace a few parts, but the engine is fine and the brakes and everything are fine.” Sophie’s visit comes as many rural farms cry out for more backpackers to fulfil a large void in willing workers. Labor is standing by its demand for a 10.5 per cent rate, initially preferred by the Senate, saying it's what farmers want and will keep Australia competitive with New Zealand. Liberal backbencher Tony Pasin said the issue should've been resolved six months ago but accused the opposition of wanting to create division and uncertainty. He said backpacker numbers had been in steep decline since 2012, long before there was a discussion about effective tax rates. Nationals MP Andrew Broad conceded the bill had been 'kicked around a bit' but was happy with where the tax rate had landed. The government has also agreed in a deal with the Nick Xenophon Team to support a trial allowing jobseekers to earn up to $5000 on seasonal fruit-picking work without penalty. Meanwhile, Sophie plans to meet up with a German friend and travel the country. “We’re planning a trip to Newcastle for a festival and then who knows where from there,” she said. Phil’s also seeing an increase in backpackers visiting. “I don’t where they’re coming from,” he said. “We had a tennis player here from Spain and another lady from Sweden, they’ve all been lovely people.”

THE FIRST bottle of limited edition local rum “1866” was awarded to the Tweed Regional Museum this week and they’re unlikely to crack it open any time soon. The rare one-of-a-kind bottle of rum from local producers Husk Distillers was announced in November as part of celebrating the 150th anniversary of Tumbulgum Village. Bottle 001 of 1866 Tumbulgum Rum was auctioned online, with proceeds donated to the Tumbulgum Community Association to continue to improve and enrich village life. Tweed Regional Museum's Acting Director Kate Gahan said the Museum was successful in securing the bottle for its permanent collection and it will be on public display in 2017. "The bottle tells many stories about the shire, and indeed the region; from the history of the ongoing economic development of the Tumbulgum area, to the rise of paddock-to-plate agribusiness and sustainable craft-based food production," she said. "What is especially unique about the stories this bottle represents is the ongoing change in local sugar cane production, which has a long history in the shire. "Based on a cattle and cane farm at Tumbulgum, Husk Distillers uses its own freshly crushed sugar to craft the rum. It also utilises waste from sugar cultivation and distillation on the farm to treat weeds and feed animals. "Husk Distillers has adapted to small scale cultivation, harvesting and crushing of cane to use its own crop. "The Museum is pleased to be able to tell this story for current and future generations."

ARGUABLY ONE of Australia’s best beers Stone and Wood, which brews many of its fine ales in Murwillumbah, is also a very environmentally friendly business after winning the NSW Business Chamber’s 2016 Excellence in Sustainability Award. Sponsored by the NSW Government’s Office of Environment and Heritage the event attracted more than 950 people and was attended by NSW Premier Mike Baird. In a media statement Stone and Wood said the award recognised the business’s efforts towards reducing the impact of their operations on the environment and provide products and services that have positive environmental outcomes. “Stone and Wood strive to build a sustainable independent brewing business each day that the good people of the Northern Rivers can be proud of,” the statement reads. “The Stone and Wood team are committed to taking care of the earth that sustains us.” As the brewing process, can be quite energy and water intensive, Stone and Wood have created an internal “Green Feet” initiative across the business, which aims to minimise their collective impact on the environment, create value through input cost savings and encourage reuse and recycling of outputs. “A fantastic acknowledgment of all of our people striving to create positive change. Look after our earth, it’s the only planet with beer.” NSW Business Chamber, Northern Rivers Regional Manager, Kellon Beard congratulated Stone and Wood Brewing Co for their 2016 Excellence in Sustainability Award win. “Born in Byron Bay with their brewing and bottling operations in the Northern Rivers it is fantastic to see the business owner’s commitment to the region and this is a well-deserved win being recognised as the best in Sustainability in NSW,” said Mr Beard.

Hot new development selling fast Bilambil reaches new heights

Aerial view of Villas on Dorothy

AN EXCITING new development located in central Murwillumbah is nearing completion and villas are already selling fast. Villas on Dorothy is a unique development on a private community title located at 28 Dorothy Street and is being developed by Mario Iseppi and Steve Mutton. John Demiris who is representing the developers said that he has been extremely busy with one sale and three other villas awaiting finance approval. “The developers will also look at doing a deal if you need to sell,” said John. “With construction only about a week from completion you can purchase knowing that all the work is done.” The nine freestanding homes consist of four designs which all have fullyfenced private yards with professional landscaping. All homes have three spacious bedrooms with an ensuite and air conditioning in the main bedroom while the main bathroom has both a separate shower and bath. The kitchens are well designed with ample cupboard and pantry space plus a gas cooktop, electric oven, stainless steel dishwasher and stone benchtops. An open-plan dining and family room with air conditioning allows for relaxed living and entertaining, while the large covered patio situated off the dining area offers a private and inviting area.

BILAMBIL HEIGHTS is certainly a gem on the Tweed and not just for affordability. The small town provides stunning views across the Terranora Broadwater to the coast and is an ideal place to settle or invest. The area has historically been a popular location for families, while providing easy access to the highway, Tweed Heads and the Gold Coast. Much of the bush setting and native wildlife is retained across Bilambil Heights, which is again an attractive draw card to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city. Recent interest in the area has prompted a rush on large family homes, where buyers are able to purchase a home with considerable space while not breaking the bank. The population grew by 9 per cent to 3,273 people between the 2006 and 2011 census.

Sales are booming in Bilambil Heights, there has been 77 sales in the year to October - well above the 62 sales made in the previous year. Bilambil Heights has seen 3.26 per cent growth in the median sale price over the past 12 months to $475K, the price remains just below the Tweed median price of $476K. The median house price has gained more than $90,000 since 2013 when the median price was $383,500. There is a number of dual living options available in Bilambil Heights, where owner occupiers can easily find space for another family on the lower or upper levels, again reducing costs and creating an income. For investors the area offers an attractive yield of 5.15 per cent and a median rent of $470 per week. Rental demand is high in the area with only four homes currently available for rent.

The freestanding villa-style homes are suitable for a small pet being fully fenced yard and having community title that allows for pets. The minimal body corporate fees include building insurance, full garden maintenance and mowing. Villas on Dorothy is well suited to retirees who wish to have less maintenance, single level living and perhaps want to take advantage of the current real estate market and downsize their larger home. INFORMATION • The villa homes range in size from 164 m2 – 169.5m2. • Prices start from $417,500, the average price is $430,000. • Villas on Dorothy can be inspected Saturday and Sunday from 11.00am – 11.45am. • Or by appointment phone 0412 409 608.

HACKSAW RIDGE

Mel Gibson is back. After a hiatus of ten years caused by antisemitic comments and violent behavior that resulted in him being kept at a distance by the film industry, Gibson has made a new movie, that could be read almost as an act of atonement. Hacksaw Ridge is a story that promotes the idea of peace and non-violence, although it presents a lot of violence in a hyperrealistic style reminiscent of other war movies like Saving Private Ryan. It is based on the real story of a man of peace caught in the inferno of WWII. Desmond Doss was a medic in the US army, a conscientious objector because of his religious belief, who refused to carry a gun in the battlefield. At Hacksaw Ridge, a place on the island of Okinawa, the location of one of WWII’s most bloody battles between the American and Japanese armies, Doss was in the frontline without a weapon to protect himself. Despite being unarmed , he managed to save the lives of seventy five men. The film highlights not only his courage but also his total withdrawal from violence. Doss was the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor, for service above and beyond the call of duty. In these dangerous times that we are experiencing at the moment, his example comes as a ray of hope.

Gallery volunteers reflect on Tweed’s rich art history

During that time, the Friends have donated more than $500,000 to the Gallery, generated by an array of fundraising enterprises. That included $100,000 for the creation of the Margaret Olley Art Centre, which is a highlight for Lyn during her time as President. Lyn said she has very special memories of the lead-up events and the tremendous anticipation “for the day we would finally see Margaret’s possessions placed lovingly in the wonderful Margaret Olley Art Centre”. She said she treasured her time with the Friends, and the auctions, lunches, dinners, morning teas, meet-the-artist events and concerts that had the Gallery buzzing. “It has been my absolute privilege to work with the wonderful committee members, Gallery staff, volunteers and guides who all support the Gallery with so much dedication and enthusiasm,” Lyn said.

“I joined the Friends because of my love of art and the fact that when I heard that a regional gallery was planned for Murwillumbah that I wanted to be a part of that,” she said. “I was quite content volunteering on the desk at the old gallery and attending openings for many years. News that a new gallery was planned escalated my wishes to be more involved.” So Helena joined the Management Committee in 2003 and has held the roles of Vice President and Secretary at different times since then, sometimes at the same time. She was also on the steering committee to plan the Margaret Olley Art Centre. “At times we were exhausted after a big opening but we always kept happy spirits and light heartedness. We had lots of laughs,” she said. While Lyn’s time with the Friends has been shorter, she has been their President for the past six years.

ART FACILITIES in the Tweed have come a long way during Allan Macnaughton, Helena Duckworth and Lyn Stewart’s long service to the arts community. For almost 30 years, Allan has served on the Tweed Regional Gallery Foundation Ltd., while Helena and Lyn have been long-term contributors at the helm of Friends of Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre Inc. During this time, the first Tweed regional gallery was established and then relocated to its current spectacular location. Then the creation of the Margaret Olley Art Centre further elevated the facility to become one of Australia’s leading regional galleries. With the Gallery now regarded as a jewel of the Tweed, the three volunteers brought an end to an era by standing down from their roles when the groups held their respective annual general meetings recently. Allan was a founding member of the Foundation, the retired Murwillumbah solicitor providing his expertise to help establish the Gallery in its first home - the former Proudfoot family home in Tumbulgum Road - in time for it to host the inaugural Doug Moran Portraiture Prize in 1988. He was still a leading contributor to the Foundation when the Gallery relocated in 2004 to its current location, and in 2014 he took on the role of Vice President. “There’s been a lot of hard work but it’s been a labour of love,” Allan said. “It’s been wonderful to be associated with the Gallery and watch it progress. It now has a great reputation and a wonderful collection.” A prized portrait of Allan’s grandmother Katherine, by celebrated painter Tom Roberts, is nestled among that collection and helped spark Allan’s interest in the arts. Helena has also been involved since 1988, as a founding member of the Friends.

Tweed youth unemployment reaches new highs demonstrate their support for youth employment in the Tweed Heads region. Tweed Heads is one of 70 towns to be visited over the next two years as part of NSW Business Chamber’s roll out of the Australian Government’s Empowering YOUth program. “The Skillsroad Show is the first careers show of its kind to bring a mobile, consultative careers service to the doorsteps of young people in regional and rural NSW alongside tangible, local work and training opportunities,” says Director, Commercial Services, NSW Business Chamber, Darren Cocks. “The Skillsroad mobile careers hub is all about making an end-to-end careers program accessible to all young Australians.” The Skillsroad Show will visit Tweed River High School on December 7 and Banora Point High School on December 8. For more information on the Skillsroad Show, please visit www.skillsroadshow.com.au - To pledge for youth go to www.pledgeforyouth.com.au

TWEED COAST Holiday Parks are proud to unveil the newly refurbished Pottsville South Holiday Park and the bookings are running hot. The extensive, $2.8 million refurbishment includes new cabins, a new office, refurbished amenities, improved entry, improved security, increase in number of sites and the introduction of ensuite sites. Tweed Coast Holiday Park’s Unit Coordinator Andrew Illingworth said the park’s transformation was really about making the best use of the natural environment and the gorgeous aspect over Mooball creek. “We wanted to increase the number of cabins available, and improve the standard of the cabin accommodation to not only capture a new market, but also meet what the market expectations are for onsite accommodation in a modern Holiday Park,” he said. “It’s a lovely park and we are all very proud of it. We improved the entrance to make it a more caravan friendly, and we improved in park security with new boom gates so visitors can holiday with peace of mind.” At Pottsville South Holiday Park, visitors can relax in the shade while watching the children splash in the year-round calm waters of beautiful Mooball Creek. Park Manager, Stacey Masula said the feedback has been really positive. “Even from the locals,” she said. “We have day-trippers coming from Brisbane to check it out for future bookings. “We are pretty booked out and have been since we reopened earlier this month. The new cabins are lovely, and reasonably priced, and the whole park is less crowded because of the new boom gates. There aren’t cars driving through and parking anymore. Our guests feel much more secure.” Surf beaches and the village shops are just a short stroll away. The park is perfectly located for family day-trips to many nearby attractions, including 20 mins to Byron and Tweed, and a short drive to Mount Warning. Pottsville South is also the ideal place for all water activities and fishing. For more information, phone (02) 6676 1050 or visit www.tchp.com.au

KINGFISH HAVE been plentiful for some weeks now but won’t be around much longer. Fish over 30kgs have been common around the shallow reefs, deep southern, 9 Mile and the 50 fathoms. Live Bait, and knife jigs have been working well, also Slimy Mackerel, flutter jigs, stickbaits and poppers – try the Williamson Jet Poppers, they’re tops. Bass have also been plentiful around the upper reaches of the Tweed – especially above weirs, and in the local dams. Smaller poppers have been doing well, but Bass Bugs have had the best results. Mangrove Jacks are around and, if we ever get the threatened storms will make for good fishing. Trevally too, around the bridges and rock walls and around Tumbulgum. Whiting around Seagulls, Tumbulgum and Murwillumbah and still some Tailor and Jewfish along the Southern beaches. Mud Crabs are on the move and good catches of Sand Crabs have also been reported.

Your Loving Dad & Mum, Neville’s Wife & Family

Bowls Notes

with Judy Tuckey

THE STATE Champion of Club Champions, Singles and Pairs, Championships at Wagga Wagga last week are now done and dusted and our very own Zone One qualifiers, all of whom hail from the Tweed Byron District, have returned home following a grand performance against other top champions from within the State.

Brunswick Head’s Josh Grenhalgh in action.

Josh Greenhalgh (Brunswick Heads B.C), the Zone One representative in the Singles delivered an excellent performance in the Round of 16. Being quick off the mark, Josh built up an early lead against Zone 14’s Corey Daley (2008 State Singles Winner). However, a strong fight back from Daley eventuated in the Park Beach contender eventually take over to lead on 30-29. Holding shot in a nail biting last end, Daley appeared to have the game sewn up until Greenhalgh responded with an absolutely superb draw shot to place himself in the box seat. Daley last bowl didn’t have the desired effect and Josh, once again, came in with another super draw to take the game 31-30. The quarter final against Zone 2’s Jarrod Duncan saw Greenhalgh once again take an early lead, but his opposition then pulled out all stops to bridge the gap and get into the game on 10-9 down. Again Josh took control to lead 19-13. Another burst from the Alder Park bowler and the score progressed to 22-22 before Duncan slowly edged ahead to close the game with a minimum of shots in hand to take Josh out of the comp. A brilliant effort from Joshua Greenhalgh.

Kingscliff pair, Trevor Hills (Skip) and Greg Barrack, were there in the mix of Zone contenders in the Pairs, all intent on claiming State supremacy. In the first round of 16, up against Zone 5’s Campbelltown City, the lads opened the score card, and holding the lead throughout the game, carried on to claim victory with a comfy margin. Next up in the quarter finals, Zone 13 Representatives from Waverley (the 2014 State Runners up) proved to be tough nuts to crack. Although slow to begin and down 6-1 early, Hills and Barrack, fought back strongly and levelled the score to 9-9 by the thirteenth end and were, again even, on 11-11 after seventeen ends. Both teams then scored counts of 3 alternatively to be even on 14-14. The Kingscliff boys, then digging deep, scored on the final two ends to close the game with a 4 shot margin. Zone 16 reps, Warilla, certainly made for a hard day on the greens for the Kingscliff team in the semis. Scoring hard and fast, the Gorillas amassed a 12-1 advantage before Hills and Barrack settled down and began scoring. However, dropping 6 shots on the 11th end didn’t do the Kingy lads any favours as the score blew out to 20-5 against. While battling on strongly and still scoring, they were unable to reel in their opposition and conceded defeat at the completion of the 19th end. Hats off to our home grown champions who have certainly done themselves, their Clubs, District and Zone proud. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

Northern Rivers sailors head to State Championships NEXT WEEKEND, the 3rd and 4th December, Several sailors from Tweed Valley Sailing Club will be heading to Lake Cootharaba, North of Brisbane, for the Queensland State Corsair Championships and Impulse Championships. Two Corsairs and 4 Impulses from TVSC will compete.

Monique Smith

The Club is hoping to see a good result from our top Corsair team, Monique Smith & Kate Yeoman’s from Tugan with Matt Andrews from South Golden Beach. Skipper; Monique learnt to sail with Tweed Valley Sailing Club. She recently acquired a very good boat has assembled

a crew top heavy with sailing talent and will definitely be a front runner. This is a proud milestone for the Tweed Sailing Club as Monique is our first home grown skipper to compete at the State level and we wish her best of luck. Also from the Tweed River in a Corsair is Skipper Alison Blatcher, with Dave Chester & Karen Vidler. Also competing is four very talented sailors in the single handed “Impulse” class dinghy, and we expect a good result from boats.

Yep, well yesterday it was pretty well flat in Hawaii. The last event of the Women’s season, the Target Maui Pro is up to round 3, and as Honolua Bay requires a large swell to break, they are on hold just waiting for something big enough to get the action underway. First up when competition resumes will be Hawaiians Tatiana Weston-Webb and wildcard Brisa Hennessy will take on our golden girl Stephanie Gilmore. From what the forecast looks like, it will be at least maybe Friday before the girls get some action. ‘For the guys it was only 4-6 foot for the World Cup of Surfing at Sunset, marginal conditions on Wednesday, but they are expecting a 8-12 foot swell for the weekend so the action should be well and truly on over the weekend. To check out all the action from Hawaii, tune in from around 5am on foxsports or on the net for the Women’s

Maui Pro, or online only for the World Cup of surfing at Sunset. The World Cup will decide who is on tour next year, and some very big results will be going down. Australia Junior Titles on at Phillip Island The Australian Junior Titles are underway at Phillip Island, with Tweed Coast ripper Alyssa Lock looking to add a National Junior Title to her National Women’s Title Captured this year. So far Alyssa has had a win and is in the quarter finals. All looking good for the Snapper Rocks goofy footer, who has already surfed a few times in the Roxy Pro Trials at Snapper, and will surely getting a crack at the trials or maybe even a wildcard from her sponsor, Roxy… Hint hint…. Tune in next week when I will have a round up of the Australian Junior Titles, the World Cup and Maui Pro, plus a preview of the Pipeline Masters.

Sh ting Hoops MEN’S LEAGUE – SEMI FINALS

Murwillumbah Basketball Men’s League reached the semi-finals stage on Tuesday night. In the Major Semi, minor premiers Tropics took on GIO Oddballs to determine the first Grand Final spot. Oddballs shot out to an early 15-2 lead and looked set to run away with the game. But the Tropics remained composed, closing and levelling the gap before taking the lead in the 3rd quarter. The final quarter remained basket for basket with Tropics advancing the Grand Final with a 37-30 win. The elimination semi-final saw a repeat of last weeks game with 3rd placed Splash Ketchum up against the Bushrangers. Splash again short on numbers toiled all game, but Bushrangers were never troubled, coming home with a 57-48 win and a showdown against the GIO Oddballs next Tuesday to determine the final Grand Final spot. I congratulate ALL 5 teams on a quality and very competitive season of basketball. This was the first Men’s League since 2013 and to only decide the top 4 after the final regular season game is testament to the balance of each side. MBA attracts players at all levels, Men’s, Women’s, Youth and Aussie Hoops from all over the Tweed Shire and Southern Gold Coast. New season will commence early February and will run to August.

MEN’S LEAGUE GRAND FINAL DAY – SUNDAY 11 DECEMBER AT 4PM

We are moving grand finals back to Sundays! The first will be the Men’s League on 11 December.

Until then, everyone is invited to see the best of Men’s Basketball in Murwillumbah. Our Wednesday Youth League will play a couple curtain raiser games commencing at 230pm. Next week I’ll give you some detailed info on who to watch in the decider.

WOMEN’S LEAGUE

Monday night and some interesting match ups. Game 1 and the ever improving Klas Hornets came out firing against defending champions, Steelers. Steelers were short on numbers, Kelley Mumford playing with an injured right shoulder. Hornets looked good, the entire side combining well. In the end a 25 all draw resulted, a fair result for both sides. In game 2 Bandits came up against a red hot Young Guns. Young Guns again were too strong, winning 45-29. This side have set the benchmark so far this season, but will the Christmas break change things? Game 3 and Blazers got the points over Purple, 31-23. Women’s League now breaks for the Christmas Holidays, resuming early February.

YOUTH LEAGUE

With 1 week to go before Christmas break, and I’ve said this before, the massive improvement in this age group is simply astonishing. From our very first session with just 7 players 6 months ago, to our regular core of 20 plus each week, this group prove they are willing to listen and learn and have an absolute ball. Coach Aaron has been a

As for the rest of the carnival our Nippers had lots of fun and showed great team spirit encouraging and cheering each other on. Well done to our March Past Team who came away with a Silver medal behind a very impressive Cudgen Team and to those dynamos in the Under 14’s who continue to fill the final spots with Blue and Gold caps. To all the athletes, Age Managers, Officials and Water Safety who make the Mighty Caba Crew, a big thumbs up! Nothing is more pleasing than seeing happy kids

mentor and friend to every member. Not only that, every one of these kids has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not many people in Murwillumbah have seen youth basketball in this town, so next Wednesday come on down to the court on Racecourse Road at 4pm and see what has been happening. New players are ALWAYS welcome. We will continue in 2017 with new uniforms and teams.

AUSSIE HOOPS

We also have just one week to go in term 3 of Aussie Hoops. Again, we have witnessed an incredible change among our youngest stars, from ball skills to social skills and more. Much gratitude goes to the coaches who have put their time and expertise into developing our Hoopers, expertly led by Coach Aaron and assisted by Coaches Cameron and Sash. We will continue Aussie Hoops in term 1 next year, details will appear in this column and on the Murwillumbah Basketball Association Facebook page.

WICKET TO WICKET Tweed Seniors Play Off for Finals Spot

Tweed Valley Sides Consolidate Top Four Positions in Coastal League

In the Ballina / Tweed Coastal League, Terranora, Cudgen and Murwillumbah have consolidated their top four positions behind leader Tintenbar East Ballina.
