Proposal for affordable housing Mr McKenna said once the proposed development is approved it could be constructed quite quickly. “I cannot comment on the construction of the proposed development; however, I know once it’s approved it could be delivered within 12 months from construction certificate approval,” he said. Mr McKenna said he was unsure whether all the units would be used for affordable housing. “I’m not sure of the number of units that could be used for affordable units in total,” he said. “I believe there’s around 24 units allocated initially for affordable units.” He said the Tweed Shire was one of the tightest markets to find a rental property.

Plans for the affordable housing development

Elderly woman living in drain pipe TWEED SHIRE homelessness has risen by 13.7 per cent in the past 12 months, according to Agape Outreach Inc director Theresa Mitchell who said the Tweed is suffering from a lack of housing which hasn’t changed. The stories emerging this week from those sleeping rough include a 68-yearold woman who has been living in a drain pipe for the past nine months. Mrs Mitchell said Tweed’s senior citizens were a growing demographic of those most frequently facing homelessness. “Agape is working with many homeless people, but senior citizens are fast becoming homeless and Australia’s most venerable,” she said. “Closures to caravan park permanent living, rising rents and trauma are seeing many aged persons becoming homeless.”

- $2200 includes GST 78312

being the most popular placement,” Mr McKenna said. “Of the 156 total, 10 per cent of those are classified as priority, and the need for elderly persons sits at three per cent. “This development will assist greatly in providing much needed social and affordable housing in Murwillumbah.” Mr McKenna said the majority of units would be a one-bedroom layout, as the majority of social housing tenants require a one bedroom home. “A total of 77 per cent of the Murwillumbah waitlist require one or two-bedroom accommodation, with only one individual requiring a five bedroom – confirming the local need for smaller one to two-bedroom dwellings,” he said.

A PRIVATE CREMATION

Mrs Mitchell said Agape has been working with the 68-year-old woman who lost her daughter from cancer and then her marriage fell apart. “She has been living in a water drain pipe in Tweed heads for the last nine months,” she said. “My heart breaks every time I see her walking out of the mangroves, knowing that she lives in there.” Mrs Mitchell said she recently spoke to Tweed Shire Council who said there could be a lengthy wait for new lowincome housing. “Council said there is no approved lowincome housing coming to the Tweed for another five to six years,” she said. “More and more people cannot afford to live here, and many lowincome earners are being pushed into homelessness.” Mrs Mitchell said Agape is currently fundraising to place people into

temporary accommodations and into permanent accommodation, if the situation arises. “We had $400 pledged over the last two weeks and we managed to get her into five nights’ accommodation over the coldest nights and an 80-year-old man into permanent share accommodation,” she said. “People can donate money towards Agape Outreach Inc online or in person for accommodating people with our Go Fund Me post or we are seeking blankets, long life food items and sleeping bags that can be dropped into our op shop at 8/6 Enterprise Avenue, South Tweed Heads.” “Agape is looking for long term accommodation for and fundraising to obtain large houses to use as boarding houses and still working towards our goal of our tiny housing living estate.”

A DEVELOPMENT application has been submitted to Tweed Shire Council to construct 72 units that will include a mix of social and affordable housing at 26 George Street, Murwillumbah. The proposal seeks to develop a 2.85 hectare block of vacant land that is mostly zoned rural (RU2), with the remainder zoned low density residential (R2). Stage one of the development will comprise of two detached permanent group homes, each providing seven units. Two further stages are proposed, providing eight permanent group homes, comprising 58 units. The site is affected by flooding, and the units are planned to be built above the one-in-100-year flood but not the probable maximum flood. An approval was granted in 2012 for seniors housing comprising 32 single storey units at the site, but the approval lapsed and a subsequent application for a 10-lot subdivision was refused by Council in 2016 Stage one is valued at $1.5 million and North Coast Community Housing (NCCH) Company will lease a certain number of units on a five plus five-year basis for social and affordable housing tenants. Chief Executive Officer of NCCH John McKenna told The Weekly the area was in high demand. “The Murwillumbah allocation zone is fifth highest in demand with 156 people requesting Murwillumbah placement as their first priority, and Tweed Heads

Road repairs are welcome

Tweed Shire Council is to be congratulated on the works carried out to repair the local roads. The patch on Limpinwood Road between Boxsell Road and Boormans Road is an example. The only problem being they painted the new line markings before they finished putting down the final seal (about seven days apart). Gordon Cameron, Tweed Shire

What’s with the roads being shut down

A cracking winters day, Sunday July 9, the weather is perfect in Murwillumbah and visitors flocked to town as the Qld/NSW School holidays and Performing Arts Festival coincided. So, why then did Tweed Shire Council decide it was a perfect time to shut down the town’s thoroughfare and paint the pedestrian crossings, a job that anywhere else in the state would be conducted at night. So if the loss of trade suffered by the business’, or the inconveniences caused isn’t enough we also have the fact that unsuspecting pedestrians, many with children in tow, were put within close contact of the toxic chemicals used in the painting process. These instances keep happening because so many of the Council decision makers live on the Gold Coast and couldn’t give a rats arse about this shire, as long as their exorbitant pay packet is there each week. No doubt the Tweed Council will shift the blame as per normal and then the next thing we know is that they will have nominated themselves for some irrelevant NSW Local Government Award. What more could you expect from the most dysfunctional Council in NSW. Paul Taylor, Murwillumbah

the native bushland that is left (TVW 5/7/18) with emotional hype trumps science every time. He seems to be claiming that science indicates that conservation of environment in national parks, instead of allowing disturbance of the environment such as logging, is causing rather than preventing species depletion. It’s a novel idea but in the light of the horrible science-based fact that Australia has one of the highest rates of extinction of species in the world his argument is not very convincing. It seems to be based on an idea that equates the logging industry with Indigenous cool burning practices - a very different scenario that did not involve removal of trees and certainly did not occur in the rainforests which did not burn easily. Even the Australian Government’s Forest Policy acknowledges the importance to conservation and sustainability of wilderness areas and the NSW Forestry Corporation boasts on its website about the wilderness land left for wildlife. The current logging changes have been questioned by the government’s own scientists and logging is well established as a cause of species depletion. Nola Firth, Murwillumbah

ABC picture sounds dark

Mr Jennings, what a frightening and dark picture you have painted (TVW July 5). It is scary to imagine an ABC minus Backroads, Australian Story, and Think Tank or quality local productions as the recent Mystery Road. In private/commercial hands we would be subject to similar programs that are offered now, and that is fine, viewers have varied tastes in entertainment. However, there is no shortage of stations providing reality shows so leave the ABC alone. Veronica Pansaru, Kingscliff

What land for hospital?

At the latest Tweed Shire Council “conflab” (July 5) Mayor Milne stated that the new hospital should stay on the current site at Tweed Heads; now Greens Party electoral policy. M i l n e ’s M a y o r a l m i n u t e conveniently forgot to state that there is no available land around the current hospital site for redevelopment. Unless the Mayor intends to hand over the Tweed Library and Council’s entire Tweed Administration Centre, and even that would not be enough land. The adjoining Tweed Heads Bowls Club would also have to be acquired for any possible hospital redevelopment to occur.

The cost of which would push the current $534 million hospital bill upwards of $800 million. As redeveloping a hospital in contrast to construction of a new greenfield hospital adds an extra 40 per cent to the bill as the current hospital has to keep functioning in such a plan and that’s before the cost of acquiring the extra land. None of which is remotely likely. Conclusion: Our Mayor and her Greens Party are using our Council as a “political soap box” to remorselessly and relentlessly oppose and delay the building of our new hospital by spreading political propaganda. Bugger the patients. Why? Answer: To manipulate the next Tweed State election because the major party that wins the Tweed electorate in March 2019 will govern NSW. Which also answers the question re: Justine’s farmers “red soil revolt” at Cudgen/Kingscliff, the proposed new Tweed hospital site. Twice since 2014 I’ve had to travel interstate to Victoria to obtain surgery that I could not get where I live and trust me, when you got a hernia or need a hip operation you don’t want to wait two years to be fixed. Last year when I had a heart issue, Tweed Hospital sent me to the Gold Coast University Hospital, because Tweed had no facilities to help me. It is extremely disappointing to realise that there are those in our community (leaders) who would be prepared to spread falsehoods and sacrifice the health of their fellow citizens for political power. Terry Sharples, Tweed Heads

Hospital frustrates me

The desperate defence by Geoff Provest (MP) and his National Party supporters over the Cudgen site for the new Tweed Hospital now borders on hysteria. Geoff took to the airwaves when the site was confirmed for the second time and immediately insulted all current Tweed Hospital staff by claiming only the Cudgen site could provide “21st century medicine”. He then said Cudgen had plenty of room for future expansion, for instance for a radiotherapy cancer unit. Yet in the media, and at least one public meeting, Provest has claimed a cancer unit was integral to the new hospital. He also claimed work will start by the end of this year, while the State Budget has no funds to complete the hospital before 2025. So what is completion? A couple of survey pegs and sit out the fiveyear DA period waiting for funds,

or a basic working hospital of 450 beds plus? Jeremy Cornford, Kingscliff

Electrical metering

There are issues concerning the change of electricity meter supply. Since the beginning of this year any electricity meter changes are the responsibility of the 20 or so electricity retailers. In the past an electrician who required meter changes would contact their local Essential Energy and arrange (of later years) a contractor duly qualified to do so. Now an electrical contractor has to help the consumer who has no idea what power of choice means? It means stress and anxiety. Say an electrical contractor has 15 ongoing jobs and four of those need metering changes? Of those four jobs I have had no personal response from all the retailers I have emailed and nor have any of the customers. Essential Energy’s drive to be a responsible company to the shareholders has left us on the ground, in limbo. After 50 years in this industry, many things have become easier, but we are just the little people, governed by those who are not actually in government but I believe in partnership. User pays, but how much? Greg Church, Nobbys Creek

Rail trail questions raised

If the Casino to Murwillumbah railway line is ripped up to make way for a bike path this means this unique and wonderful corridor of land would be taken away from the majority of the public and given to a small number of cyclists who have the money, inclination and fitness. In the Parliamentary Inquiry, Mr Maloney, the former coordinator of Tweed Byron Ballina Community Transport submitted that the rail line between Lismore and Murwillumbah is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of the north coast: “This rail journey travelled during the day meanders through some of the most scenic countryside in Australia. The train travels through quaint villages like Eltham, past dairy farms, cane fields and remnants of the unique Big Scrub Rainforest. On leaving Bangalow the train travels along the St Helena escarpment with magnificent views of Julian Rocks and the Pacific Ocean and then past more rainforests at Hayter Hill and the paperbark swamp vegetation around Byron Bay. Out of Byron Bay and towardMullumbimby there are views of Mt Chincogan. After leaving Mullumbimby the train travels through the small villages of Billinudgel, Mooball, Burringbar

and Stokers Siding to imposing views of the 20 million year old Mt Warning shield volcano – a landform of both scenic and natural international significance.” If rail services were returned we could have one of the best tourist trains in the world. Our current politicians seem unable to understand this simple truth so at the next election we need to vote for a representative who recognises the incredible beauty of the Northern Rivers. Beth Shelley, Booerie Creek

Death knell of our reef

According to the latest report from the Climate Council, the Great Barrier Reef could be hit with catastrophic bleaching every two years by 2034 under current greenhouse gas pollution levels. The frequency and intensity of these bleaching events does not allow enough time for the reef to recover. Unless drastic and immediate action is taken, the world’s largest living wonder could be gone forever. Climate Council Acting CEO Dr Martin Rice said that the future of coral reefs around the world depends on nations including Australia doing their part to effectively tackle climate change. It seems to me that most politicians are more concerned about protecting their voter base than the planet. To do nothing about climate change is an abrogation of their responsibility to ensure that our children have a safe and prosperous future. Mr Rice said that limiting global temperature rise above pre-industrial levels to no more than 1.5 degrees celsius is critical for the survival of reefs worldwide, along with economies and tourism operators who rely upon them. How can the Turnbull Government achieve this when its current emissions reduction target by 2030 is only 26 per cent? Even though Labor’s target is zero net emissions by 2050, how do they expect to achieve it if they continue to support new coal mines? The Greens is the only political party which is standing up against Adani with an energy policy which does not include coal. Please send a strong message to our politicians at the coming state and federal elections.

NAIDOC celebrations underway at Tweed Heads By Jo Kennett

INDIGENOUS FAMILIES returned home to the Tweed Shire for the annual NAIDOC Week celebrations which run from July 8 to July 15. At the Minjungbal Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Tweed Heads visitors were treated to a NAIDOC Cultural Day with a dance performance, dilly-bag weaving, and a hauntingly beautiful performance of a women’s hunting song with Aunty Deidre Currie. Auntie Deidre said that the dance was a food gathering and picking dance for women. “The women would wake up and go out and pick and gather food and then go to sleep and the good spirits would come to give them good rest and dreams,” Aunty Deidre said. Children had an opportunity to learn traditional songs and dances, as well as hear stories with the Guyahn Early Childhood Project. There were NAIDOC-themed portraits, a yarning circle and painting. Aunty Desrae Rottimer told The Weekly that NAIDOC Week was a time for families to get together and for the whole community to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. “It’s mainly a time to let people know there are still Aboriginal people around,” Aunty Desrae said. “It’s a celebration of our culture and a time to catch up with family and friends and people we don’t normally see.” Many family members had just arrived from Sydney and other places for the week-long celebrations.

“My family has come back for NAIDOC Week,” Aunty Desrae said. “A lot of people come back to where they are from and others meet up in the places they now live and see how they celebrate and join in.” The theme of NAIDOC Week this year is “because of her, we can! to “celebrate the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation”. Students have been learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and achievements in the lead-up to NAIDOC Week and had explored the achievement of Indigenous women as part of their studies. The celebrations culminate in a NAIDOC Street March at 10am on Friday, July 13, at Tweed Heads Civic Centre, followed by a Corroborree in the Park at Jack Evans Boat Harbour at 11.30am and a NAIDOC Dinner Dance at 6pm at Twin Towns.

“If negotiations are unsuccessful, the application shall be refused on the grounds that the development does not satisfy Clause 7.3 of the Tweed LEP; that is, the development is incompatible with the flood hazard of the land.” Council said the interim policy will not restrict a landholder’s right to appeal the refusal in the Land and Environment Court, which could also prove costly to Council. Another option is to rezone land in high-risk areas from residential to recreation, but this is not a preferred option as it would trigger a compulsory acquisition process that would be costly to Council. Council’s preferred option is to encourage the consolidation of lots within these highrisk areas, with around 40 addresses in South Murwillumbah comprising more than one lot. “It is considered to be the best outcome for these lots to be consolidated by the landholder, thereby retaining a residential zoning, and preserving the current dwelling and private ownership,” Council’s report reads. “This requires some incentives to be offered by Council, as the increased value of the existing dwelling with increased land area is unlikely to match the lost value of additional dwelling entitlements. “A confidential attachment to this report provides a valuer’s report on a consolidation case being considered in South Murwillumbah, which provides an indication of the costs associated with such an approach.” Applications to alter or add on to existing homes will continue to be permitted under the interim policy. The interim policy is expected to be placed on public exhibition in the coming weeks.

TWEED SHIRE Council is hoping to stop further development of high flood hazard areas in South Murwillumbah, Bray Park, Burringbar and Mooball following extensive damage and loss of life during last year’s unprecedented floods. Council is planning on developing an interim policy that would prevent landholders from constructing new homes in high risk areas. These areas have been found to have significant risk to life and property due to a combination of a lack of warning time and the extent of flooding experienced. Current development control plans restrict subdivision and dual occupancies on floodprone land and requires new dwellings to meet standards that limit flood damage. Council said since last year’s flood they have received several applications to develop land in high-risk areas. “Council continues to receive development applications and enquiries proposing new residential dwellings in these same suburbs,” Council’s report reads. “Some are purchasing land with the intent of constructing additional dwellings. “Others are in the process of making decisions regarding the ongoing use of their land post-flood, with some choosing to pursue the demolition of aged and flood damaged structures and construction of new dwellings on their allotment.” Council said allowing further development in high-risk areas counteracts the investment they and the State Government are making as part of Voluntary House Purchase (VHP) and Voluntary House Raising (VHR) schemes and those who construct new dwellings in these areas will be ineligible for government assistance in the future. Council said landholders have a lawful right to lodge a Development Applications and if this right is limited landholders may request compensation. “This presents a substantial financial and legal risk on the Council organisation,” Council’s report reads. The compensation could include fees paid to Council, the cost of preparing development applications or compensation for a “lost” dwelling entitlement based on valuations. “It is not possible to predict the cost of these negotiations as they will be site specific,” Council’s report reads.

AN APPLICATION by the Dunloe Park Sand Quarry to increase the number of trucks by up to 40 a day will not be supported by Tweed Shire Council following a motion raised by Mayor Katie Milne and Cr Ron Cooper at the Planning Committee Meeting on Thursday, July 5. Council staff had recommended that several concerns be raised with the Department of Planning over the quarry’s proposal, but the Mayor’s motion also called for Council to not to support the application. The quarry applied to the Department of Planning last year to increase their hourly truck movements from a maximum of four per hour to 12 to help meet demand. The quarry is permitted to extract 300,000 tonnes of sand per year, and while the modification did not ask to increase this limit, Council staff estimated the number of trucks leaving the site would increase from 80 up to 120 each weekday and from 40 to 60 on Saturdays. Council had previously raised several concerns over road safety and following discussions, the quarry has agreed to improve sight distances at the intersection of Pottsville Road. The remaining concerns include impacts on koalas, road users and residential amenity from the increased number of trucks.

Council said the site is of significance to koalas and is within a Key Linkage Area of the Tweed Coast Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management with implications for koala connectivity and road mortality. “Council officers have raised concerns with the Department with regard to potential impacts of the additional truck movement and the proponent’s disregard for the KPoM as a mechanism to achieve the objectives of the TLEP,” Council’s report reads. “Concerns are raised with regard to potential amenity impacts associated with the increase in peak truck movements from a general road user perspective and local residential amenity.” Mayor Milne and Cr Cooper’s motion called for further public exhibition of the plans “so that the misleading information contained in the original Exhibition Notice can be rectified and the general public be given an opportunity to respond” and another community newsletter be distributed with information about the proposed increase in heavy vehicle movements. The motion to not support the increase in trucks was narrowly won with Cr Milne, Cr Cooper, Cr Cherry and Cr Byrnes voting for and Cr Polglase, Cr Allsop and Cr Owen voting against.

Councillors vote to defer range of agenda items TWEED SHIRE Councillors voted on a range of agenda items during their July Planning Committee Meeting on Thursday, July 5, at Tweed Heads.

Caravan park approved

Councillors voted unanimously to approve a $6.5 million manufactured home development on the site of the old aquatic club at Dry Dock Road, Tweed Heads South.

Rural Land Strategy deferred

Cr Chris Cherry and Mayor Katie Milne moved that the Draft Rural Land Strategy be deferred to the August Planning Meeting so a workshop can be held with a representative from the DPI to address councillors and staff regarding the Department’s submission on the draft strategy.

Rate rise agenda item

Councillors voted unanimously to approve a rate rise as per the rate peg set by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART). The rate rise of 2.3 per cent will see the minimum rate for households increase by $50 from $2,369.75 to $2,419.85.

Helipad application deferred

Mayor Milne and Cr Cherry moved that an application for a helipad at 477 Urliup Road be deferred until Council’s August planning meeting. The Karlos family applied to Council last year to approve a helipad on their property for personal use. The application sought to use the helipad for up to seven flights per week for transport to and from work between the hours of 6.30am and 6.30pm.

During public exhibition of the application Council said they received several complaints from local residents “regarding the helipad activities already occurring from the site without development consent”. However, none of these complaints contained any evidence for Council to be able to issue a Penalty Infringement Notice or Order to Cease the activity. “Council officers made attempts to resolve the issues by way of gathering proper evidence of inbound and outbound flight logs based on the helicopter registration number, however, lengthy delays by Gold Coast Airport and other authorities, has resulted in no such evidence becoming available to date,” Council’s report reads. Mayor Milne and Cr Cherry called to delay the decision until next month’s meeting so that log books could be provided. No objections were received from Gold Coast Airport and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and a noise impact report found that helicopter noise would be within EPA guidelines for surrounding properties. Council’s Environmental Health Officer recommended the hours be limited from 7am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday and 8am to 6.30pm on Sundays to “provide some additional relief to surrounding sensitive receiver locations given background noises are likely to be lower due to the rural nature of the area”. “The applicant is opposing this condition, however it is still recommended that this condition

remain to protect amenity in the area outside of these hours,” Council’s report reads. The motion to defer the decision was won with Cr Milne, Cr Cherry, Cr Ron Cooper and Cr Reece Byrnes voting for and Cr Warren Polglase, Cr Pryce Allsop and Cr James Owen voting against.

Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Plan

Councillors voted unanimously to adopt the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Management Plan after a lengthy public consultation process. Issues with the plan were raised by some Tweed Shire residents who were concerned that areas were mapped as having Aboriginal Cultural Heritage. However, Council said the mapping was to inform property owners and developers that their land contains Aboriginal Cultural Heritage and removing their properties from the mapping would not remove the potential for Aboriginal Cultural Heritage.

“The requirements of the plan are not new and are required under current legislation, however, wider appreciation and understanding of Aboriginal cultural heritage as well as the mapping developed as part of the plan will require more rigour in the assessment of potential impacts to Aboriginal cultural heritage as a key consideration of Council works and projects,” Council’s report reads.

Murwillumbah parking waiver

A carparking contribution fee waiver for new businesses in the Murwillumbah CBD and Prospero Street will be extended for another 12 months. The waiver was introduced following last year’s f loods t o s t i mu l at e g row t h i n t h e Murwillumbah business district. Council staff recommended the waiver not be extended, but Cr Allsop and Cr Byrnes moved that the trial period be extended until June 30, 2019. The motion was carried with Cr Cherry, Cr Cooper, Cr Allsop and

Cr Byrnes voting for and Cr Milne, Cr Polglase and Cr Owen voting against.

Tweed Valley Hospital minute

A Mayoral Minute raised during the Council meeting proposed that “Council condemns the reaffirmed decision to allow the Tweed Valley Hospital to be built on State Significant Farmland at Cudgen”. T h e m i nu t e c a l l s fo r t h e State Government to provide comprehensive information into their decision to build the hospital on a greenfield site south of the river as well as future plans for both The Tweed Hospital and Murwillumbah Hospital. The motion was won with Cr Milne, Cr Cooper, Cr Cherry and Cr Byrnes voting for and Cr Polglase, Cr Allsop and Cr Owen voting against. For further information on the motion see Tweed Link on page 8.

Habitat high-rise creature comforts An innovative approach to managing the risk of dead trees on public land is being trialled in the Tweed. Rather than remove dead trees in parks, Council has engaged specialist contractors to turn the trees into wildlife habitat high-rises. Council has adopted the high-rise habitat idea from the Gold Coast, where more than 80 habitat trees have been created and are proving popular with our feathered friends and other creatures. To create the habitat high-rise, the limbs at risk of falling are safely trimmed back and then artificial tree hollows installed. The hollows closely resemble natural hollows, as they are constructed from the existing tree branches. Monitoring of the hollows created on the Gold Coast has shown a high success rate to date. “More than 300 native wildlife species, including birds, reptiles and mammals are totally dependent on tree hollows for nesting or roosting,” Council’s Senior Program Leader Biodiversity Scott Hetherington said. “This approach not only prevents the loss of dead trees, which are critical for providing tree hollows, but fasttracks the creation of hollows that otherwise take a minimum of 100 years to form naturally.” Council last week created high-rise habitats in two trees, and has one more to come later this month. The first high-rise habitats are on Botanical Circuit at Banora Point and River Street, Murwillumbah. The third will be on the Garden of Eden Road reserve at Tomewin. “The hollows created will target species most likely to occur in the area as all species have unique requirements with regard to the overall dimensions, position and size of entrance hole. The initial hollows will aim to provide habitat for lorikeets and other small parrots, owls and possums,” Mr Hetherington said. Council Arborist Luke Page welcomed the trial. “Tree hollows in urban areas are becoming increasingly rare so the ability to create these high-rise habitats is very exciting and will provide better outcomes for park users and wildlife alike,” Mr Page said. Left: Contractors from Habi-Tec build a high-rise habitat for lorikeets, gliders and rosellas in this forest red gum on Tree Street, Murwillumbah. The contractors created four hollows in the tree by removing the dead or dying limbs, cutting into the retained tree and boring out an internal hollow before re-attaching a front plate and drilling an appropriately sized entrance hole to suit the targeted species.

The debate on hospital site continues Council (Councillors, the elected body) is continuing to advocate for the Tweed’s new hospital to not be built on agricultural land. On Saturday 30 June, the NSW Government confirmed that the new $534 million Tweed Valley Hospital would be built at Cudgen, opposite Kingscliff TAFE. This was the site originally selected however the issue of location was revisited during a period of subsequent six-week period of community consultation. Council had previously taken a stand against the hospital being located on State Significant Farmland and advocated for alternative sites. This position was reiterated by a decision at last Thursday’s Council meeting, where it was resolved: “That Council condemns the reaffirmed decision to allow the Tweed Valley hospital to be built on the State Significant Farmland at Cudgen, and requests the State Government provide the following: 1. A comprehensive review into the Governance of this process including but not limited to what led to the initial decision for a greenfield site, effectively excluding expansion of the current hospital into the civic precinct west of the existing site, 2. A social and economic impact analysis for the residents north of the river from the loss of hospital services and potential loss in value of their homes or ability to relocate, as well as a social and economic impact analysis for residents south of the river, 3. A report into the locations of the current high users of the hospital, 4. A comprehensive review into the lack of adherence with

Dolphins can spend all their lives in our rivers and estuaries.

Help keep dolphins healthy Did you know that most dolphins living along our coastline don’t migrate? Many dolphin communities are resident and rely on localised coastal habitats including estuaries and rivers for their everyday survival – yet we know little about the health and survival of theses populations. Pottsville-based marine conservation charity, Dolphin Research Australia is setting out to determine the status and health of bottlenose dolphin communities in estuaries of Northern New South Wales with the launch of their Healthy Waterways-Healthy Dolphins Project – a long-term community-led research and monitoring program. Tweed Shire Council is partnering with Dolphin Research Australia to lead surveys in the Tweed River estuary. To find out more about dolphins and how to become a trained dolphin watch volunteer, register for a workshop to be held on Saturday 14 July from 2–4pm at the South Sea Islander Room, Tweed Heads Civic Centre. A field component will be held on Sunday 15 July from 8.30–10.30am with Tweed Eco Cruises. To find out more about the project and upcoming workshop head to www.dolphinresearchaustralia.org/research/healthywaterways/ or contact Dr Liz Hawkins at info@dolphinresearchaustralia.org

Who’ll pay for hospital infrastructure needs? With the Tweed Road Development Strategy recently on exhibition and the announcement of the Tweed Valley Hospital site at Cudgen, some community members have been asking how roads and infrastructure required for the new hospital will be funded. Council’s Director Engineer, David Oxenham said NSW Health Infrastructure would pay for and build any local road upgrades on Cudgen Road adjacent to the site, as well as some upgrades to the intersection with Tweed Coast Road. “It is important to note that under legislation, Health Infrastructure is not required to pay Developer Contributions for major road upgrades on the basis that the State Government already contributes to infrastructure upgrades through various grant programs,” Mr Oxenham said. “Similarly for water and wastewater, Health Infrastructure will pay for and build the connections to Council’s trunk system but are not obliged to pay Developer Contributions. “The new hospital will not trigger the requirement to upgrade Tweed Coast Road but will clearly benefit from it,” he said. “There may be opportunity to combine the intersection upgrade works with the Tweed Coast Road upgrade for the benefit of all.” Funding for these major upgrades does not come from rate revenue but from a combination of Developer Contributions which council collects and state or federal grants. Council currently has a grant submission with the Federal Government to fund 50 per cent of the estimated $25.6 million necessary to upgrade Tweed Coast Road to four lanes from Chinderah to Kings Forest.

Unauthorised furniture on beaches and dunes from Kingscliff through to Cabarita are being removed over the next few weeks. The number of unauthorised chairs, seats and lounges has proliferated in and around the dunes. In some cases, the furniture poses risks to beachgoers because of broken, rusted and/or protruding parts. Other items have been placed in areas of sensitive vegetation. Unit Coordinator Natural Resource Management, Jane Lofthouse, said there was also a safety issue during high tides or periods of erosion, should the furniture be washed away. “It’s easy enough to bring items such as chairs and umbrellas down to the beach with you and take them away when you’re finished,” Ms Lofthouse said. “Leaving these items near the beach on a more permanent basis is a hazard to others and to the environment.” Council also reminds residents and visitors that fires are not allowed on Tweed beaches or in the dunes.

Sections of the popular Tweed Range Scenic Drive in the Border Ranges National Park badly damaged by Cyclone Debbie in 2017 will soon be repaired and the route reopened before the October holidays. The NSW Government has appointed MJ Smith Ground Preparations Pty Ltd for the $1.6 million contract to undertake the repair work. There was significant damage along the route with major landslips and slope failures in several places, meaning the walks, camping grounds and lookouts in the park had to be accessed from the Kyogle end. Repairs will be covered by the NSW Government’s insurance provider.

Right plant, right place The new Tweed-Byron Native Species Planting Guide will help home gardeners and professional landscapers choose the right plant for the right place. The guide, which is available online, will allow home gardeners and professional landscapers build native species planting lists for projects ranging from landscape-scale restoration to back garden planting. The online guide was funded by the NSW Government’s Environmental Trust Education Grant Program of 2015 and has been produced with the support of Brunswick Valley Landcare Inc., Tweed Landcare Inc., local garden clubs and other support groups. It complements the hard-copy My Local Native Garden booklet, which is available for a gold coin donation from Council offices. “The online guide is an interactive resource that was developed in conjunction with Byron Shire and allows the user to drill down to see a detailed photograph of the plant and read all its characteristics to improve every plant’s chance of success in any setting,” Council Bushland Officer John Turnbull said. “We have included more than 1500 locally occurring native species in the online guide including their physical attributes (height, habit and flower colour), environmental tolerances (sun, frost, salt and wind hardiness), ecological relationships (key fauna food, butterfly and bird attracting), soil types where they occur and broad landscape locations. “Species are also assigned to vegetation mapping types and have a nursery ‘availability’ score.” Council will hold some short training courses in how to use the guide. To register to attend one of these sessions, please contact Mr Turnbull on (02) 6670 2400. The guide is available online at www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/NativeSpeciesPlantingGuide

Speedier processing for planning Determination times for development applications (DAs) at Tweed Shire Council dropped markedly in 2017/18, despite an increase in numbers of applications and other complicating factors. The NSW State Government requires annual performance reporting (each financial year) for all Councils on their determination times for the full range of development and certification applications. Last financial year, Council achieved a substantial reduction in the determination times of its main applications, as compared against the 2016/17 results, and as measured against State averages. In 2017/18, 1,028 DAs were determined (1,040 DAs received). This compares to 872 DAs determined in 2016/17 (858 received). DA determination times have improved year on year, with a DA in 2017/18 taking an average of 58 days to determine, compared to 69 days the previous year. This compares well to the State average of 71 days to determine a DA. The average determination time for single dwelling DAs (including house additions) was 37 days, well within the NSW Premier’s Priority performance goal for faster housing approvals (90 per cent of housing approvals within 40 days). Council’s Director Planning and Regulation, Vince Connell, said the results were particularly pleasing given a particularly busy and complicated year for Council’s planners and building surveyors. “The results show a major reduction in application turnaround times, despite the fact we received and determined about 150 more development applications compared to 2016/17,” Mr Connell said. “NSW councils have also had to adapt its planning systems to a constant roll out of major reforms to the NSW Planning system over the last 12 months, including the commencement of a modified Planning Act, new biodiversity and coastal planning legislation, and emerging Aboriginal Cultural Heritage policy and legislation. “Locally, we were also contending with additional staff resourcing demands of an unprecedented number of Land and Environment Court (LEC) appeals and compliance actions. It should be pointed out that almost 98 per cent of the application determinations are done under delegated authority by Council officers.”

“The remaining applications were determined by Council, the LEC and the Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP) and took significantly longer, impacting on the average results. For example, the average determination times for DAs assessed by the elected Council and the JRPP were 163 days and 193 days respectively.” Meanwhile, complying development applications took an average of 11 days to process in 2017/18, the same as the previous year and well ahead of the State average of 18 days. While the time taken to determine Section 96 (modification of existing DAs) applications improved from 67 days in 2016/17 to 61 days in 2017/18, this was slower than the State average of 51 days. “The section 96 result was impacted by the modification of three older consents for the existing caravan park at Barneys Point with determination times of 603 days for each application for the same proposal. Without these three applications, the overall result would have been an average determination time of 50 days, below the State average,” Mr Connell said. The main factors were implementation of new electronic lodgement systems; effective monitoring of internal referral between technical units of Council; streamlining administration systems and multiskilling more staff in processing applications; earlier calls by senior management on problematic applications; a continuing focus on thorough and accurate pre-lodgement advice and checking by technical officers; and appointment of two fulltime town planners to assess Building Unit DAs.

West Pottsville food hub location revealed THE LOCATION of a proposed food hub west of Pottsville has been revealed this week, with high level talks already held between government, food producers and infrastructure providers. The industrial food processing precinct plans to provide facilities to process produce from the region for export and domestic sale, as well as providing a food excellence facility for visitors and buyers. The proposed hub, orginally planned for Bangalow, includes seven rural industrial buildings up to 5,000 square metres, a 1,000 square metre food excellence facility, a restaurant/cafe and an administration and information building Tweed MP Geoff Provest said the land was already zoned for industry as Employment Lands, as part of the Far North Coast Regional Strategy 2006-2031 and as part of a much larger area known as West Pottsville Area 7 in Tweed Shire Council’s Tweed Urban and Employment Land Release Strategy 2009. “We already have a number of food producers keen to get in,” Mr Provest told The Weekly. “We recently had the Deputy Premier John Barilaro (who is also Minister for Regional NSW and Minister for Small Business) here to talk about it. “The water, sewerage and power for a complex like this require a lot of money so what we are looking at is contributing significantly to stimulate growth in the south of the Tweed Shire.” Mr Provest said the government had an obligation to supply those things, although in 2015 Tweed Shire Council planners said the cost of connecting to the waste water system would be borne by the developers. “It will be great because it will provide quite a few jobs in that area,” he said.

Mr Provest said they weren’t sure of the precise location of the food hub but that it would be in the vicinity of Kudgeree Avenue, Cudgera Creek. The site is approximately three kilometres west of Pottsville, adjoining the Pacific Highway to the west and Pottsville Mooball Road to the east. “It will be up to the private investors to buy out whichever properties they want,” Mr Provest said. “The NSW government will be involved in bringing services to that facility. “One of the great selling points of the Tweed Shire is its green, organic, healthy produce and that fits in with that we are doing.” Mr Provest said The Department of the Premier and Cabinet has had talks with Essential Energy and with Tweed Shire Council about the headworks for water and sewerage. “It’s a scoping exercise at the moment to work out what’s needed,” he said. “We don’t want to allow an industrial site, to develop this facility here and then find we don’t have enough power.” Mr Provest said they would also look at renewable energy for the food hub. Last week The Weekly was told the funding for the facility was already in place and that Indian investors were looking at being involved, provided a list of requirements for exporting goods to India. The 2008 Pottsville Locality Plan states that the site had several constraints, including the steepness of the land, existing bushland and a heritage Aboriginal ‘scar tree’, a tree that Indigenous people have removed bark from to make canoes, shields and other implements. “The proposed location appearing within the Far North Coast Regional Strategy appears to have been located on a site south of Kudgeree Avenue and extending southwards

over existing steeper land and bushland,” the locality plan states. “It is considered that much of this area is unsuitable for industrial development due to these constraints. “Additionally, existing rural residential properties located on the northern side of Kudgeree Avenue will be impacted by industrial traffic and will have a southern outlook over an industrial area rather than the current vegetated hillside backdrop.” The plan states it is considered appropriate to relocate the industrial area northward to the rear boundary (north) of rural residential properties on Kudgeree Avenue. The planning proposal, known as the ‘Pottsville Employment Lands’ project, was publicly exhibited in early 2015, and Tweed Shire Council’s subsequent approval gave final consent to the rezoning of the Kudgeree Avenue site to industrial land under planning department guidelines. Last week Michael Simmons from Mount Warning Tours told The Weekly he and his business partner Kym Marston and business developer Manish Karkhanis had been in talks

with National MPs Geoff Provest and Thomas George about investing in the Tweed Shire. “Investing in opportunities around taking Tweed Fresh produce and Tweed Valleymade processed and manufactured product into India and the Middle East was a main component for discussion at that meeting,” Mr Simmons said. The Tweed Valley Weekly spoke to a resident who lives on Kudgeree Avenue who said residents were aware of the plans but not of recent discussions and developments. The resident said he did not want to comment at this stage.

Council investigating water extraction allegations

TWEED VALLEY

HOSPITAL DEVELOPMENT

By Jonathon Howard TWEED SHIRE Council says it’s investigating several complaints made by the Tweed Water Alliance into alleged breaches of water extraction allocations and truck movements at four separate sites with the most recent alleged breaches coming from Nobby’s Creek. Tweed Water Alliance member and spokesman Jeremy Tager said the Alliance was hopeful to hear a result of the investigation as soon as possible. “While the Tweed Water Alliance recognises that the Council must follow due process, they also need to actively investigate,” Mr Tager said. “Council wrote to these four operators in I believe May.” The Weekly put several questions about the allegations to Tweed Shire Council who said they were “seeking an explanation of their activities”. Council’s Director of Planning and Regulation Vince Connell, said Council officers have been investigating a series of complaints made by Tweed Water Alliance in respect to a number of existing commercial water extraction uses. “And have written to each of the owners of these sites, including the Nobbys Creek site, seeking an explanation of their activities,” Mr Connell said. “Once a suitable response has been provided by each of the owners, all four matters will be reported back to Council to determine a suitable course of action. “It is hoped that this information will be available for reporting to the August Planning Committee or Council Meetings.”

Be Safe

Mr Tager said he appreciated Council’s response but was concerned that their response suggests they are “not doing more than waiting for answers that were due almost 30 days ago”. “Nobby’s Creek must have the opportunity to respond, but there is no question that both the truck sizes, the number of truck movements and the refilling station are not authorised,” he said. “In fact, all the operators - except the one at Kynnumboon - continue to operate outside their conditions and for Council to ignore these ongoing breaches is not justified by the current process in place.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe more could be done to ensure the correct amount of water is trucked out of the Tweed Shire?

TWEED POLICE are appealing for public assistance after a pedestrian was seriously injured in a hit and run at Minjungbal Drive on Sunday, July 8. Police said it they were called to Minjungbal Drive, Tweed Heads South, at 8pm, following reports a utility had struck a pedestrian and the driver failed to stop to offer assistance. On arrival, police officers found a 59-yearold woman suffering head and leg injuries. She was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition. Crash Investigation Unit officers said they wish to speak with the driver of a white late

model single-cab utility with a steel tray who may be able to assist with their inquiries. Police also wish to speak with the driver of a dark grey Ford Festiva and the rider of a white sports motorcycle seen in the area at the time as they may be able to assist in the investigation. Any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage of the crash is urged to come forward. Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw. crimestoppers.com.au

Drunk woman blocks Murwillumbah street TWEED POLICE were given a bizarre reason for terrible parking at the intersection of Brisbane Street and Proudfoots Lane in Murwillumbah on Saturday, July 7. Police said officers spotted a silver Hyundai Getz illegally parked and blocking traffic at the intersection around 7.15pm. “A 51-year-old female from Bray Park was in the driver’s seat and when questioned as to why she had stopped there, she informed police that it was the closest park she could get to the bottle shop,” police said.

“The female appeared to be intoxicated and there was allegedly a strong smell of intoxicating liquor coming from the vehicle. “The female was subject to a roadside breath test which returned a positive reading. “She was placed under arrest and conveyed to the Murwillumbah Police Station for the purpose of a breath analysis.” The breath analysis returned a reading of 0.155, which is three times the legal limit. She was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for High-Range drink driving which was her second offence and her licence was suspended immediately. She will appear at the Murwillumbah Local Court.

Two fined for refusing to leave Tweed pub TWEED POLICE were called to a licensed venue at Tweed Heads on Thursday, July 5, at 7.50pm, after two drunken men refused to leave. Police said a 31-year-old male from Tweed Heads and a 39-year-old male from Elanora were asked to leave the premises due to their level of intoxication.

Both males refused to leave, and Police were contacted. “Upon arriving Police located the males in the poker machine area of the premises where they were spoken to before being escorted from the premises,” police said. “Both males were issued a $550 infringement Notice for Failing to Leave the Licensed Premises when requested.”

Banora Point student waits five months for Austudy By Jo Kennett

A BANORA Point university student who was named Ap p re n t i c e o f t h e Ye a r at Kingscliff TAFE has finally received approval for Austudy payments after a five month wait and he says the problem is widespread. Mr Gow is studying Mechanical Engineering full-time at Southern Cross University and told The Weekly he had made numerous calls to Centrelink without the matter being resolved. T h e We e k ly c o n t a c t e d t h e Department of Human Services about the delay with Mr Gow’s application on Monday, July 10. A spokesperson from the media department said they would look into it and the approval was granted the following day. Mr Gow said he was very happy that it had finally been approved but was concerned about other students. “It’s great but there are still many other students out there experiencing the same problem,” he said. Mr Gow said he had applied for Austudy in February. “ I wa s t o l d t h e e s t i m at e d completion date to process the application was April 2,” Mr Gow said. “It’s been over three months since then and until I received the news today (July 10) nothing had happened. “I rang them so many times and was always just told to wait.” Mr Gow said when he made the application in February he had

$4,000 in the bank but that has been eaten away by living costs. “They told me that if I was in financial hardship they could fast track it,” he said. “Financial hardship according to them is having less than what your fortnightly payment would be, so less that one payment - around $445 - in the bank. “They told me that I just had to live off my savings and that they couldn’t help, I just had to wait.” Mr Gow said he started studying part-time last year and working parttime but now he is full-time and he doesn’t have the time to work. “I am doing almost 60 hours a week including travel time from Banora Point to Lismore,” he said. “It has been really hard to survive with minimal food and not going out anywhere. “I’m paying rent, so rent and fuel for the trip to university are big costs and I don’t know whether that money will be recuperated, though they say they will backpay you if it is approved, so they should.” Mr Gow said Centrelink employees hadn’t wanted to tell him whether he was eligible for the payments over the phone. “I had to wait until it was in writing,” he said. “The only reason there might have been any question over my eligibility is because I initially had that money in the bank but anyone studying fulltime who hasn’t exceeded the study period is eligible. “I haven’t exceeded it so there shouldn’t have been any problem.” Mr Gow said that there was a government website with student

updates that was filled with comments from students having the same problems. “There are a lot of students struggling and there are people that are far worse off than me,” Mr Gow said. “There are people with $6 left in their account wondering where their next meal is going to come from. “There are also stories of students dropping out because they can’t afford textbooks and fuel and those types of vital necessities to studying.” Centrelink has been telling students they are processing claims as fast as they can. “It’s either an understaffing problem or they just don’t want to pay,” Mr Gow said. T h e g ove r n m e n t ’s S t u d e n t Update website has many people commenting they are in the same situation. One student said they had waited for six months only to have their application declined, despite the fact they were studying full-time, living on campus, were unable to find work and had used up all their savings. Another had put in a Financial Hardship application to try to speed up the process. “Still waiting for my claim since 1st Feb,” they commented. “Already finished a whole semester of University and still no payments and I also don’t have a job. Even put in a financial hardship and still nothing.” Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot said many locals had contacted her about lengthy delays in processing times for Centrelink

payments including the Age Pension, Austudy and carers payments. “This situation is unacceptable and I’ll continue to raise this issue in Parliament and condemn the Turnbull Liberal Nationals Government for these long delays,” Mrs Elliot said. “I encourage anyone to contact me with their individual cases and I’ll make representations on their behalf.” Mrs Elliot said the Government had cut a further 1,280 jobs from Centrelink in this year’s budget. “These job cuts only make it more difficult for locals to access Centrelink,” she said. A s p o ke s p e r s o n fo r T h e Department of Human Services said that they “process millions of claims every year and work hard to finalise them all as quickly as possible”. “Many claims involve assessing complex income and asset

information, and we frequently need to seek additional information from the person making the claim,” the spokesperson said. “The department prioritises the processing of claims for anyone experiencing financial hardship and encourages people in this situation to contact us.” The spokesperson said that as at 29 June 2018, the median claim processing time for Austudy was 22 days. “If a person’s claim is successful, they may be paid from the date they submitted their complete claim to the department.” YOUR THOUGHTS?

We all want a new hospital, but the protected State Significant Farmland at Cudgen is the wrong site. The NSW State Government has ignored the State Significant Farmland zoning on their selected site and has made this decision against the will of the community.

We address all of the NESA syllabus expectations and more without taking away their childhood.

By Jo Kennett LIFESAVERS FROM Far North Coast Surf Life Saving clubs from Fingal to Yamba were at Cabarita Beach for a worldleading training program on Sunday, July 8, known as ALBERT or Australian Life Boat Emergency Rescue Training. Two drones were deployed in mock-up rescues with teams of Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) crews. A spotter drone was used to locate swimmers in trouble before the high-tech Surf Life Saving (SLS) NSW drone was successfully deployed to drop an emergency flotation device to the swimmers. The swimmers were then brought to shore by IRB teams. Executive Management Committee member of the Far North Coast branch Elton Cummings said ALBERT had been in operation since 2013. “This is the first time we have used the drones in the ALBERT training program which was developed here on the Tweed Coast and I think this is the first time it’s been done anywhere in the world,” Mr Cummings told The Weekly. “It’s never been trialled before and it’s a learning curve for us.” The training day included a Drone Observers’ Course, as drones operate under Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulations like normal aircraft, a Drone Operators’ Course (Skills Maintenance) and IRB Crew (plus Awards assessment) and Drivers Skills Maintenance. Mr Cummings said the cross-pollination of information ALBERT provided was very important.

“Everyone thinks they are doing it right until they come and see how other clubs operate,” Mr Cummings said. “It also gives a pathway for younger people to become crew operators, drone observers and operators and the Rescue Water Craft (jet ski) program will also come into it as we progress. “This program is now being rolled out in Sydney, the Sunshine Coast, and there is interest in Victoria and other places.” Mr Cummings said they hadn’t previously had a way to test the progress of IRB crews, drone operators and drone observers. “This is skill-based, not competition based like carnivals,” he said. “We work under a CASA system, licensed with Little Ripper, with all the processes of an aircraft such as requirements to make sure we have safety observers and controlled landing and takeoff areas that are away from the public. “All those processes have to be taught.” Mr Cummings said there were two drones, a sub-two kilogram machine and a 25 kilogram machine. “The big one takes a two-week CASA registered licencing course to learn to operate with lots of flying,” he said. “For the two kilogram machines there is a skills-based training program under SLSNSW.” Mr Cummings said the smaller drone would be used to send out on regular patrols. “The 25 kilogram drone with pods and the ability to do rescues, roving patrols and callouts and will mainly be deployed if we have someone in the water in trouble,” he said.

We are part of a supportive caring community and are taking enrollments now for next year, however a couple of the classes are almost full already. If you are seeking a structured learning environment that promotes the love of learning please do not hestiate to contact us. We are located south of Uki with buses runing from Murwillumbah and Nimbin to the school each morning and afternoon.

“We have drone observers here who are keen to become pilots of the two kilogram machines and then that becomes a pathway to be an observer and pilot on the 25 kilogram drone.” Mr Cummings said that 100 members had done the training but they needed to train another 100 members this year to be fully in operation for the summer season. “We only started drone training in December and the amount of people that have shown interest has been outstanding,” he said. “I thought we would have ten and we have probably had about 50. “There was a lot of paperwork involved last night because of the aircraft safety requirements we are operating under including logging flights and checking pilots’ licences are current and so that part takes a bit longer.” Mr Cummings said it was the first time an integrated drill-based training program had been done anywhere in NSW, or Australia with drones dropping rescue pods to people in the water. “The second drill today is where we drop a package from the drone, it could be water, medicine, radios or an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) to a craft out the back,” he said. “That has never been done before in surf life saving history as far as we are aware.” Cabarita SLSC Chief Training Officer and drone pilot Rob Readman said it was an exciting development for surf lifesaving. “Drones allow other members of the clubs who aren’t actively patrolling to participate which gives us a big push into the community,” he told The Weekly. “There are a lot of experienced, older members who are now training on the drones and we can also have people with disabilities

involved, which is something I’d like to see more of. Mr Readman said it was great for clubs to grow membership and reinforced the already strong bond and skills sharing between the four Tweed Shire clubs. “There are some really good mechanics and they can share their maintenance knowledge and safety is another big one,” he said. “Going to different beaches is a key part of training that really benefits members." Mr Readman said the drones have the same eyes as a helicopter. “We can deploy them a lot quicker than we can get a helicopter to a rescue scene,” he said. “You can see a whole lot more looking down with a drone than you can with IRBs in the water so if we are conducting a search in poor water conditions the drone really helps. “It just makes the beach safer for everyone.” President of Cudgen SLSC Adam Mills said the ALBERT training program was developed at the club and successfully delivered by the Far North Coast Branch of Surf Life Saving NSW. “We have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding to roll out the ALBERT program across the state which is a world first. “It’s great because it makes it easy to bounce off ideas, share resources and there is an increased number of drivers to practice training operations.” Mr Mills said it was also getting more members involved. “It makes it easier to put on courses when there are more members involved,” he said. “It has really helped each of the clubs to set up emergency response teams and at the end of the day that’s making our beaches safer and will ultimately save lives.”

Feeling Dizzy?

You could have a balance or vestibular disorder

BALANCE is easily taken for granted. However when the fragile vestibular organs of the inner ear and brain are damaged by illness or injury, anyone can lose their ability to balance.

T

o achieve good physical balance, we rely on our brain, eyes, innerear, and musculoskeletal system to work in harmony. Balance disorders are typically under diagnosed and undertreated. More than 1/3 of adults aged 40 years and older experience vestibular dysfunction at some point in their lives. Common symptoms of vestibular disorders include vertigo and dizziness. Vertigo is a spinning or whirling sensation, or an illusion of the self or world moving. Dizziness is a lightheaded, floating or rocking sensation. Poor balance, nausea, visual disturbances, headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, and pain or fullness in the ears can accompany vestibular disorders.

HOW CAN YOUR OSTEOPATH HELP? There are many causes of dizziness or vertigo. But most types of vestibular disorders can be diagnosed by means of a thorough medical history and clinical examination. The most common type of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), and once diagnosed is easily treated with repositioning manoeuvres, with a success rate of 90%. (Silva, 2014). Another type of vertigo encountered is Cervicogenic Vertigo, which is due to a dysfunction in the neck. Again once diagnosed, it can be easily treated with Osteopathic intervention. Your Osteopath can diagnose most of the common types of vestibular disorders and can either treat the condition or refer on for further diagnosis and treatment. Dr Rudi Gerhardt B.Sc., D.O.

Halls Tyre Service launches drought fundraiser By Jonathon Howard MURWILLUMBAH BUSINESS Halls Tyre Service has launched a heartfelt initiative to help NSW farmers struggling under prolonged drought conditions by donating funds from their own profits. Halls Tyre Service owners Sue and Laurie Hall recently attended a presentation by Drought Angels at the Murwillumbah Services Club, which left them with a deeply concerning impression. Sue said she was shocked by the impact of the drought and Halls Tyre Service wanted to do something to help. “We’ve decided to launch a campaign to raise funds for these farmers struggling through this flood,” she said. “Halls Tyre Service will donate $20 from every new job where the customer purchases four new tyres and includes an alignment.” The initiative is already off to a great start with several customers matching the $20 donation and plenty of businesses have also been eager to donate. Sue said that although it was a small contribution, every dollar adds up, as several communities are now turning to public swimming pool water in desperation. “The drought conditions across NSW are really hard on these farmers and there has been increased suicide rates, which is hugely concerning,” she said. “We know this is only a small contribution, but we are still eager to raise as much money as possible and make people aware of the issues.”

The prolonged drought continues to grip almost 100 per cent of NSW with many regional families under extreme pressure and some who are simply walking away from generations of farming. The dry conditions are also gripping parts of other states as federal politicians arrange a special meeting in Canberra to develop a plan to address the severe pressure being placed on farming families. The National Farmers Federation, NSW Farmers Association, Agforce Queensland, Victorian Farmers Federation, Western Australian Farmers Federation and South Australian Farmers Federation are all expected to attend. Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud announced the meeting last month and said the roundtable will discuss long-term drought policy and strategy in the context of building resilience and drought preparedness during a changing climate. State farming groups are expected to raise a number of potential c h a n g e s t o f e d e ra l d ro u g h t assistance, including the complicated process for farmers trying to apply for the Farm Household Allowance (FHA), a payment equivalent to the unemployment benefit for those suffering financial hardship. T h e M i n i s t e r s a i d h e wa s investigating how to achieve such a model. “I’ve asked the Department of Agriculture to look at ways the FHA application process can be further streamlined,” he said.

“The fact is that receiving benefits through Centrelink requires proof of financial situation and assets.” Mr Littleproud encouraged people applying for assistance to seek help. “Rural financial counsellors, for which I extended funding recently, are there to help farmers fill out FHA forms and I fear some farmers have not taken advantage of this,” he said. “I also urge farmers not to selfassess whether they’re eligible - please use the rural financial counsellors as that’s what they’re there for.” While calls for further government subsidies are unlikely to get traction, there are other organisations offering direct relief. Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot said farming should have been made a priority years ago. “Farming families affected by drought are paying the price for five years of the Turnbull Liberal & Nationals Government inaction,” Mrs Elliot said. “Our drought affected families need real help now, but the Turnbull Liberal Nationals Government is more focused on giving the Big Banks a $17 billion tax cut rather than helping farmers. “This shows yet gain how much the Nationals have abandoned rural and regional Australia.” The Halls Tyre Service Drought Angels campaign will run until the end of September. For more information visit or to make a donation visit Halls Tyre Service at 1 Mayfield St, Murwillumbah or phone (02) 6672 1133.

Sod turned on TAFE Connected Learning Centre Boost for Tweed Hospital By Jonathon Howard MEMBER FOR Lismore Thomas George turned the first sod on the new TAFE NSW Murwillumbah Connected Learning Centre (CLC) on Tuesday, July 7, with the new facility expected to be open for enrolments by the beginning of 2019. Mr George said the state-of-the-art centre, which is located at 115-117 Wollumbin Street, will enable students to use the latest technologies to connect to courses both locally and outside the shire. Mr George fielded questions about the future use of the current Murwillumbah TAFE at 146 Murwillumbah Street which he said will “remain as is during the next 12 months”. “Beyond that we are unsure, but we expect both sites will be used based on enrolment numbers and the needs,” he said. While the new Connected Learning Centre will offer a range of new courses, it is not expected to offer courses that are the same as the current Murwillumbah TAFE, according to TAFE NSW spokesperson Susie George. “The multi-million-dollar facility, which will significantly increase and expand the number of courses available, but they will be different to the current Murwillumbah TAFE site,” she said. The Murwillumbah CLC is part of the NSW Government’s plan to enhance TAFE NSW’s presence across rural and regional NSW and replace outdated facilities with new digitally enabled CLCs. It follows the rollout of CLCs in Quirindi, Tenterfield, Glen Innes and Coonabarabran late last year. “Murwillumbah is a perfect example of how the NSW Government continues

to invest in TAFE NSW to grow as a world-class, innovative and flexible public education provider,” Mr George said “The first four CLCs to be built have demonstrated students receive more personalised learning experiences and better access to teachers both on and off-site, including the most in-demand courses linked to job outcomes. “These CLCs doubled the number of courses available to their local communities, which paints a bright future for the people of Murwillumbah and the surrounding communities.” Mr George said the expanded course offerings mean less need for travel to larger centres for local students, so students can live and learn in their local community. “The NSW Government’s significant investment in CLCs complements other initiatives to boost educational opportunities in regional areas, namely TAFE Digital and the establishment of SkillsPoints Headquarters across NSW,” he said.

The courses offered through the CLCs are backed up by a full-range of Mobile Training Units that will deliver the highquality practical training TAFE NSW is known for, and most importantly, training which is consistent with industry standards. “Regional NSW is central to our modernisation of TAFE NSW, and today is another example of how we are rolling up our sleeves and getting on with the job of providing quality training for students and a future workforce for employers,” Mr George said. “The Murwillumbah CLC will equip students with the skills, knowledge and connections to employers that are needed to support our local economy.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Would you like to see the current Murwillumbah TAFE remain open once the new Connected Learning Centre opens? Send us your thoughts and letters to editor@theweekly. net.au

AS DEBATE rages over the future of the Tweed Valley Hospital site, works continue to keep The Tweed Hospital on its feet including increasing bed numbers and the addition of a CT scanner. Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said he has welcomed the completion of the first of several upgrades to The Tweed Hospital. The first stage of these interim upgrade works has now been commissioned and 12 new inpatient beds, to be known as “Medical 4” will be ready for patients early next week. “While plans for our new Tweed Valley Hospital progress, it is essential that facilities at the existing Tweed Hospital continue to provide quality health care for local residents,” Mr Provest said. “The hospital is gaining an additional two theatres, three recovery beds, two intensive care bed spaces, 12 inpatient beds, nine Emergency beds/ bays, three oncology treatment bays and an additional CT scanner.” Other works are on track for completion within the coming months with all works planned for completion in March 2019. The NSW Government has allocated $582 million for the Tweed Valley Hospital Development Project which includes interim upgrade works to ensure The Tweed Hospital can continue to meet the needs of the community until the new hospital is operational.

The Tweed Hospital interim upgrades are expected to be completed by March 2019. Photo contributed.

Why cruising is the ultimate holiday

THERE IS something about cruising that oozes the appeal of total relaxation. You unpack once yet visit a number of destinations. Generally, every time you wake you are in a new location. Deck chairs, sunset cocktails, swanning around the pool deck and glancing out at sea to an endless horizon. Then there are the ports of call; the allure of white sandy beaches, shading palm trees and clear blue waters, or foreign lands of mystery and intrigue. A cruise would be absolute paradise, right? Well, it isn’t for everyone, but a recent cruise industry report revealed the demand for cruising is estimated to continue to grow between 14-18 percent in the next 12 months. Approximately 1.63m Australians are expected to take a cruise by the end of 2018

Thursday, July 12, 2018

financial year, with a third of all Australians considering taking a cruise in the next 12 months and two thirds of past cruisers considering cruising again. With that many people cruising, there must be something amazing about it. A holiday cruise is a great way to celebrate with family and friends - without having to cook, clean or host. It is also a great option for couples to find romance on the high seas, or even solo travellers to find that someone special on-board. Probably the main drawcard for a cruise holiday is the fact that it is pretty much allinclusive. Multiple destinations, daytime activities, all-day dining, fitness facilities, lectures, children’s clubs, multiple pools, daily entertainment, night-time shows and film screenings are the norm. Then there are some pay as you go experiences like the alcohol (although there are often drinks packages that you can pre-pay) spa, casinos and specialty dining. All in all, generally you don’t have to reach into your pocket once on board. You won’t have time to get bored either, with so much going on. The cruise ships these days seem to try and outdo each other on thrills and activities on board. You can now experience

vessel directly onto dry land via a movable ramp called a gangway. If it’s anchored, you’ll have to take a tender -- a small boat that ferries passengers ashore in groups. However, probably one of the best things about cruising is the people you meet. If you love to meet people from around the country, and the world, cruising provides a wonderful opportunity to make new friends. Even before you embark, you can connect with cruisers on Cruise Critic’s Roll Call forums and create groups to go on independent excursions. Onboard, you’ll meet people at your dinner table, at the piano bar or by the pool. The person seated next to you might be from Paris, Texas, or Paris, France; London, Ontario, or London, England. Kids can find playmates their own age during youth activities, so they’re not always with adults or their older or younger siblings. Looking for Mr. or Ms. Right? Well there is also the chance of love at sea. So why not consider a cruise for your next holiday. The lovely team at Helloworld can find just the right cruise for you.

impressive water parks, zip lines and rockclimbing walls to just scratch the surface when it comes to adventure on the high-seas. There are above-the-ship viewing pods and wind tunnels that enable you to “fly”, Zen zones for adults only and playgrounds for children to go wild in. All that, and you haven’t even left the ship. The next main drawcard of a cruise, and probably the defining factor of what cruise to choose, are the ports of call. Every port is different, but, in general, many offer some variety of souvenir shops, restaurants and bars, beaches, active pursuits, historical sites and other attractions, which you can either explore on your own or visit via a shore excursion. Shore excursions can be a sightseeing tour by bus, a walking tour or a guided activity like snorkelling, biking, hiking or kayaking. Your ship will usually arrive at its destination in the early morning, which means you wake to a new sight every day. Depending on the depth of the water and the available infrastructure at the port you’re visiting, your ship will either dock at a pier or anchor offshore. If your ship is docked, you’ll be able to simply walk off the

TWEED SHIRE residents grappling with anxiety and depression are invited to attend a free introductory Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program at the Murwillumbah Community Centre on Tuesday, July 17, from 6pm. This series, which is sponsored by the Murwillumbah SDA Church, will be the second conducted in Murwillumbah since the 2017 flood. Join Dr Neil Nedley, an American physician in mental health treatment and research, has developed the Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program from his 15 plus years of research and clinical experience helping his clients. In eight weeks participants will learn how to improve brain function, increase energy,

boost concentration, engage in healthy sleep habits, improve physical performance and gain new hope. The course will help residents identify the underlying causes, or ‘hits’, which bring on depression. “Every case is as different as each individual, but the 10 Hit Categories summarise all the possible causes for depression,” Dr Nedley said. Those who sign up for the program, will receive access to an eight-part DVD series, but also a workbook and group discussions, which reinforce the information, from the DVD presentations. Please note the first session is free, while follow up sessions will incur a fee that will be discussed during the first session. For further enquires phone: 0488 552 487.

HAIR IS just like skin, it needs moisture. This cold dry air leaves the hair and scalp frizzy and even flaky. The fastest way to add moisture is to use a treatment after you shampoo, comb it through and leave it in for at least five minutes before rinsing it out. For the extra dry and damaged hair try using a third step moisturiser to balance your hairs natural moisture and restore its shine. We use and recommend Hyaluronic Moisture Kick, the Hyaluronic Acid

Lifesaver running for Parkinson’s disease

Michael Ziegler has already raised $15,000 for Parkinson's disease research. Photo: Jo Kennett

By Jo Kennett

CASUARINA’S MICHAEL Ziegler was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease three years ago at 44-years-old. Now he is running two marathons to raise funds for Parkinson’s research and is asking for the community’s support. “I’ve raised about $15,000 so far with the goal to raise a lot more,” he said. “My corporate sponsors have chipped in and I’m doing the 14km City to Surf marathon on August 12 and then the Bridge to Brisbane on August 26.”

Mr Ziegler said he had never been a runner and now runs over 10km a day in training. “I can’t say I love it," he said. "My main running before this was from the couch to the fridge for a beer but it’s gotten very real and a lot of people have gotten behind me, and I don’t want to let them down." Mr Ziegler is a member of Salt SLSC and said the Surf Life Saving community had been fantastic. “The support from the community has been great, especially the Surf Lifesaving Clubs,” he said. “They are like family.” Mr Ziegler said the diagnosis had been the start of huge changes in his life. “I had a slight tingling in my fingertips and that turned out to be something a bit more sinister than that,” he said. “After going to see various doctors and specialists and professors and they did a lot of testing and the outcome was Parkinson’s disease. “I was National Sales Manager for a tank company at the time and I thought I was bullet-proof. “I did some research and came across the Shake it Up Foundation which is associated and everything they raise goes to Parkinson’s research and all funds are matched by the Michael J Fox Foundation in the USA. “My journey has been an eye-opener. “You have to prepare yourself for things like the medication but there have been huge advances in technology and medication so there is always hope.” Mr Ziegler said he was fundraising to raise awareness and money for research.

The Tweed Mall is expecting sales to increase by 10 per cent with the addition of Aldi. Photo contributed.

Aldi aim for early 2019 at Tweed Mall

ALDI WILL open a new supermarket outlet at Tweed Mall in the second quarter of 2019 in a move that’s expected to offer even greater shopping options to Tweed Shire residents. ASX-listed Elanor Retail Property Fund have announced an agreement with Aldi for the supermarket giant to become an anchor tenant at Tweed Mall. ERF purchased Tweed Mall for 81.25 million in 2016. Aldi have agreed to enter a 15-year lease with two further five-year options at the northern end of the Mall. Aldi will replace the current tenant, Lincraft, and the completion of supermarket conversion and retail fitout works. “The new Aldi supermarket forms part of an ongoing strategy to transform the retail offering and positioning of Tweed Mall as the region’s centre for convenience shopping,” ERF Fund Manager Michael Baliva said. “Complemented by Woolworths, Coles, and Target, Aldi will be a key catalyst in the repositioning of the centre toward providing everyday retail goods and services for the local trade area,” Mr Baliva said. “This will help meet demand from the growing population base of the trade area, as well as the tourism market.”

According to Mr Baliva, the Aldi lease also contains relocation and sub-division clauses, thereby maintaining ERF’s flexibility to implement the mixed-use redevelopment opportunities at Tweed Mall. “The increased sales and foot traffic generated by Aldi will benefit Tweed Mall and its retailers, whilst driving value for ERF security holders,” he said. “With Aldi entering the Mall from 2019, centre sales are forecast to increase by 10 per cent, including forecast sales increases at the existing Woolworths and Coles supermarkets. “In addition, the Aldi lease commitment will extend the centre’s Weighted Average Lease Expiry (by area) from 3.6 to 4.5 years.” Tweed Mall Centre Manager John Weaver confirmed the long-term tenancy of Aldi as a very positive outcome for the Mall. “With the introduction of Aldi, Tweed Mall will be the only shopping centre in the primary trade area offering all three major supermarkets under one roof, on one retail level, with ample convenient customer parking,” he said. “Tweed Mall is about convenience and engagement with the local community – we offer a relaxed atmosphere which aligns with our coastal lifestyle of people living and working in and around the Tweed Heads and the Southern Gold Coast regions.”

3 Ways to Save on Energy Costs with the Best Value New Tek in Solar advertisement

1. More Solar Panel Power

2. Battery Power for Nights

3. Off Grid Forever!

Network export limits prevent most homes installing solar power systems with over 5 kW capacity. If you use over 30 kWh of power a day, the StorEdge battery inverter with a 10 kWh LG Lithium battery allows you to install up to 12 kW of solar and get $8,000 in solar rebates while staying within your 5 kW export limit. This gives plenty of power for day and night and emergency power during black outs. Most other “battery ready” inverters will not allow you to get the full rebate or install the extra solar you need to fill the battery and power your home for the day.

We can combine fully optimized solar panels with the flexible power of Victron off grid systems to power everything you need, including air conditioning, hot water and pumps. 888 Solar Tek specialises in off grid power with designs that work with your budget to provide sustainable energy for the rest of your life. If you are moving onto your dream property or just want to get rid of the dirty coal fired power grid forever, 888 Solar Tek have a custom design for you with free on-site service.

> The new Victron Power system gives reliable New higher density solar panels provide up to 18% > Batteries make sense if you have a big bill and produce excess power that can’t be sold to the grid. energy for total power independence. more power per square meter of roof space.

>

Insist on future-proofing your solar by installing standard size panels with at least 320W output per panel. (Some panels are over 320W but take up much more roof space, so be careful). In the years to come you will want to use all your available roof space to provide power for battery storage and charging an electric car, so get the most power you can now on the least amount of space. Good solar panels have a 25 year warranty, so they are a long term fixture, so get the best ones you can - the Government will pay most of the cost through the subsidies available now.

July SolarEdge Intro Sale Now On! Free 25 year Inverter Warranty Upgrade

Seniors special offer on Naked Wines

TWEED SHIRE seniors are being offered a special wine deal from Naked Wines this week with $100 off their first wine order in the support of Australian and New Zealand winemakers. Naked Wines is based in Australia and prides itself on promoting core small business values with the belief that the high quality of their wine and the highest level of customer service is of utmost importance. Naked Wines partnership director Suzy Shallvey said the business model is now more important than ever with data showing Coles and Woolies currently dominate liquor sales in Australia snaring close to 50c of every $1 in sales. “Naked Wines works directly with winemakers by funding them to make great wines happen. We support their passion and talent and provide an enthusiastic and receptive market for their wines,” she said. Mrs Shallvey said Naked Wines aims to liberate winemakers and protect and promote quality and diversity. “We have more than 48 winemakers so far across Australia & New Zealand and 70,000 members (Angels),” she said. “We support our winemakers with investment, marketing and industry expertise. We leave them to do what they do best - make great wine.” “As well as championing great new talent, we also attract many winemaking royalty, industry legends,

who over their careers might have found themselves drifting further away from their true passion - actually making wine.” Mrs Shallvey said their winemakers includes ex-Grange winemaker Daryl Groom and former Wolf Blass chief Caroline Dunn who are among some of the most awarded Australian winemakers and Stuart Bourne who’s Shiraz was hailed as one of the 100 best wines in the world according to The Wine Spectator and was once served to Queen Elizabeth. “The wines made by Naked winemakers are exclusive to Naked Angel customers and not available anywhere else,” she said. “We believe that the enjoyment of authentic, handcrafted wine should be an everyday pleasure for the many, not a privilege of the few.” Mrs Shallvey said Naked Wines is a well-kept secret and the team want to share their vision and wines with as many Tweed residents as possible. “Many of our winemakers have had amazing journeys and incredible stories,” she said. “We aim to bottle their skill and passion and change the way people think about and buy wine. “We have found that the best way to spread our message is to get people to sample our wines with an initial $100 amount off their first purchase. Most are so taken with our wines that they come back for more and become our biggest advocates.”

Naked Winemaker Sam Plunkett

By purchasing this offer Tweed Valley Weekly readers will go on a waitlist for the opportunity to become an angel (member) to get an ongoing 25-50 per cent discount across the Naked Wines’ range including a free bottle every month and access to exclusive wines. It isn’t necessary to become a Naked Wines angel in order to purchase this case and you can come off the waitlist at any time. As an Angel your account will automatically be topped up with a debit of $40 each month to be spent on wine. You can cancel your subscription at any time and receive any unspent money back to your nominated account.

Preventing elder abuse

A NEW group that aims to support older Australians and protect them from elder abuse was launched by Attorney-General Christian Porter last month. “The abuse of older Australians is tragic and the Turnbull Government is committed to working with state and territory governments, and our community partners, to develop solutions to address this issue,” Mr Porter said. “Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA) has been established to work in partnership with government to promote the safety, dignity, equality, health and independence of older Australians through education, capacity building, data gathering and research. “This new alliance will play a key role in the development of a National Plan to combat elder abuse, which I announced in February.” A National Plan was a key recommendation of the 2017 Australian Law Reform Commission’s (ALRC) Report: Elder Abuse - a National Legal Response, which highlighted a litany of examples of serious physical abuse, financial abuse, neglect and exploitation of older people. “As Australia’s population ages, with the proportion of those aged 65 or over rising from 15 per cent of the population in 2014-15 to 23 per cent by 2055, we need to address the risk of abuse that faces people as they age,” Mr Porter said. “The Council of Attorneys-General agreed to work towards the establishment of a national register of Enduring Powers of Attorney as a key step to provide protection from financial abuse of older Australians.” The Turnbull Government is providing $500,000 to EAAA under Budget initiatives to protect the rights of older Australians. These funds will assist the establishment and work program of the EAAA to contribute to policy making and system design to prevent and address the abuse of older people. EAAA is working closely with the Government to investigate options to develop a central knowledge hub. This will make it easier for older people, their families, carers and support staff, and allied health professionals to access the information and training necessary to address and prevent the abuse of older people.

Mr. Property Services’ goal is to provide “a home for every budget”

MR. PROPERTY Services was established in 2008 to offer a professional and dedicated service at reasonable rates to the ‘Buyers’ and ‘Sellers’ of manufactured homes located in Lifestyle Villages and Residential Parks in the Tweed Valley and the southern tip of the Queensland Gold Coast. The Law applying to homeowners in Caravan Parks, Residential Parks and Manufactured Home Estates has changed effective from the 1/11/2015. The Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 has replaced the Residential Parks Act 1998. Are we being charged to much for our electricity? Park operators purchase electricity at commercial rates, which they can negotiate. They then distribute/on-sell electricity to home owners through an ‘embedded network’. Unfortunately, some operators on-sell electricity to home owners at the standing offer price as published by the local area retailer. The difference in what an operator pays for electricity and what they charge

a home owner for on-selling electricity is sometimes making them a profit. The law does not permit operators to overcharge home owners in this way. The Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 limits what operators can charge for electricity usage to the amount they are charged by their utility service provider. The Tweed Residential Parks Homeowners Association can offer advice on electricity charging by contacting TRPHA President – Tom George, Phone (07) 5513 1267 or Email tweedresparks@hotmail.com for advice and information.

Locals supporting locals WHEN YOU support a local tradesperson and supplier you are not only keeping money in the Tweed Shire, you’re also supporting local families and in turn our community will thrive. Remember, local trades people provide lasting employment, understand the local conditions and are just around the corner when you need them. Our local tradies are also highly qualified with established credentials, licensing and can also help recommend other trades people to help with all your home or business maintenance. Another reason to think local and buy local is for making stronger ties to the Tweed Shire community, you never know who you might meet and friendships can last a lifetime. If you had a good experience with a local tradesperson, you might recommend them to a friend, who in turn recommends them to another friend and the local cycle begins. So, the next time you pick up the phone to call in a tradie, think local and we can all help strengthen our community for the future.

Koala habitat land purchased at Pottsville Mustangs charity

By Jonathon Howard THE NSW Government signed off on the purchase of 43 hectares of prime koala habitat adjoining the Cudgera Creek Nature Reserve on Tuesday, July 10. Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton joined Member for Tweed Geoff Provest and members of Team Koala for the announcement. Aside from koala habitat values the land also contains five nationally threatened plant species and another nine species listed under the State’s Biodiversity Conservation Act. “This is another great day for koalas in our local area and follows the purchase of land last year by the Government to create a 100-hectare koala reserve at Pottsville, and funding recently allocated for a koala holding facility at that location,” Mr Provest said. “This latest addition compliments existing efforts by the Government to conserve high value Koala habitat that supports landscape connectivity as well as the east-west movement of koalas between the hinterland and the coast. “This movement is important for the future survival of the Tweed’s population of coastal koalas which have been recorded moving back and forth over the Pacific Highway near the nature reserve via a specially designed fauna land bridge.” Team Koala president Jenny Hayes said members were very excited about the purchase of 43 hectares for koalas. “This will facilitate corridors to promote their survival,” she said.

“Every koala food tree is precious and anything which can help their plight is welcome news.” Minister Upton emphasised the land purchase is part of the Government’s $45 million package to save the koala across the state. “We know there are koalas in this area and the evidence shows they are also moving through on a regular basis,” Ms Upton said. “The purchase will also improve the ecological viability of the existing 60-hectare Cudgera Creek Reserve by increasing its size by almost 72 per cent. “Conserving this new addition will contribute to koala conservation by removing threats such as clearing and habitat fragmentation as well as reducing

other threats such as dog attack and vehicle strike.” This latest purchase is one of a number that the Government is planning on top of the 24,600 hectares of state forest very recently set aside for koala conservation. It is looking to acquire more land containing high-priority koala habitat for the national parks system through its land acquisition program where $20 million has been specifically allocated to koala land purchase over five years. A wide range of related koala conservation activities have also been funded through the Saving our Species program, which has contributed more than $1.8 million to Koala conservation since the program began in 2012-2013.

MURWILLUMBAH MUSTANGS have unveiled their designated charity polo shirts for purchase this week and at their annual charity day on Saturday, July 21, at Stan Sercombe Oval. The Mustang’s charity this year is Wedgetail Retreat, which is a non-government funded 24/7 specialised palliative care facility. Mustangs President Nigel Lofts said the club was hoping plenty of locals and local businesses would be keen to purchase the specially designed charity polo this year. “The polos are available for purchase at $60 each which includes entry into the game against Cudgen Hornets,” he said. “There’s also limited numbers so get in quick.” Mustangs secretary Darin Skillington said he wanted to encourage the community to get down to Stan Sercombe Oval and show their support for the Mustangs against the Hornets. “It would be great to have the local community show their support at this important charity fundraiser and game against Cudgen,” he said. Gates open at 1.15pm with the Under 18s game followed by Under 9s game, Reserve Grade at 2.45pm and A-grade at 4.30pm against the Cudgen Hornets. To order your polo phone Mustangs president Nigel lofts 0438 632 206 or Heidi Lofts 0438 632 205.

Hobby Expo a huge hit

By Jonathon Howard THE EAST Coast Hobby Expo has been heralded a huge success with upwards of 500 people converging on the South Tweed Sports Club across the weekend on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday, July 8. Now in its sixth year the Hobby Expo attracted locals and visitors from as far as Sydney and Brisbane with a range of outstanding models, figures, boats, tanks and much more. The event also attracted the Star Wars Southern Cross Garrison 501 of the international organisation Rebel Legion, who were assisting the nominated charity Super Max & Bryce kid’s cancer charity. Tweed Valley Modellers president David Malone said the event attracted a steady stream of visitors.

“Overall it was a great weekend had by everyone,” he said. “We also raised almost $700 for the children’s charity Super Max, which was a great result.” Super Max & Bryce is a global community of people working together to give a Super Max, which is a Turtle night light, to every child who is diagnosed with cancer in Australia and New Zealand. Among some of the standouts models were the radio-controlled model boats, model planes and trains, model railroad displays and Dr Who items. Mr Malone said he was looking forward to returning next year. “It’s always a pleasure visiting the Tweed Shire and South Tweed Sports Club,” he said. “We will be back again in the first weekend of July 2019.”

Families enjoyed creating their own model cars and planes.

Thousands celebrate Tropical Fruit World’s 35th birthday

HUNDREDS OF locals and visitors converged on the iconic Tropical Fruit World on Saturday, July 7, to celebrate the park’s 35 birthday. The festivities included a range of entertainment, tours, special presentations and an outstanding variety of food stalls. The Weekly spoke with Tropical Fruit World owner Bob Brinsmead on the day who said he was delighted with the turnout. Among the presentations was some amazing information about bees including native honey bees, live music, tours of the park and a range of delicious food stalls. Tropical Fruit World general manager Aymon Gow said the event was a huge success. “We are not 100 per cent but we estimate between 2,000 and 2,500 people attended the day,” he said. “There were 600 people that did a tour of the park on Saturday and 300 people that did a walking tour of part of the farm. “Many people relaxed on the lawn and listened to the live music.” Aymon said the feedback from residents was extremely positive.

“We have had some really lovely emails and social media comments from locals thanking the staff and commenting on what a nice day they had,” he said. “It was great to see so many local families that had never visited the park before come and see what we offer.” Aymon said Tropical Fruits World was also continuing to invest in the park to allow greater interaction for tour groups. “We have made our tours quite interactive with orchard stops landscaped to allow people to get off the tour vehicles and experience the farm firsthand,” he said. “We have also put in place native bee hives to teach people about their role in farming and their importance.” The park is also now looking towards incorporating walking tours. “After Saturday’s success we will be looking into walking tours as a more interactive handson version of our existing tour activities, feedback from visitors was that they really enjoyed the face to face and being able to better interact with guides,” he said.

Health centre moves to preventative approach Smoke alarm saves family from house fire

CABARITA BEACH Health Centre is changing its approach to health care and is now calling on residents to pay the practice a visit while they’re not sick, in order to receive a check up and to determine their future health needs. The bottom up approach is designed to give locals some tailored advice to potentially address future problems such as weight and diet, and even head off possible illnesses down the track. The idea has come from the centres’ Director Ramana Panda a former GP with 19 years’ experience as a medical practitioner with interest in Telehealth and Skin cancer. Mr Panda has worked in several rural healthcare locations and used Telehealth to provide specialist services to these remote communities. This system can be useful for everyone in the community as it enables practitioners to obtain and send patient information to and from other specialists immediately. His vision of developing an integrated system for Telehealth consultations for the past 10 years has led to Telehealth Networks. Mr Panda was a founding member and current Chairman of Health Academy Australia, an online teaching institute with 850 students worldwide. He i s c u r re n t ly i nvol ved as a director and board member in several organisations “I want to encourage people to come and visit our centre when they are well,” he said. “Meet with our range of health and wellbeing practitioners and therefore start a long-term management plan for their own health. “Prevention is better than cure, and if we can get to know our clients before

things start going wrong, we may be able to prevent illness occurring in the future. “We want to treat our patients holistically, and therefore enhance their health and wellbeing for the long term.” The Cent re h a s t h re e g e n e ra l practitioners. Cabarita Beach Health Centre is about to welcome a new GP, Dr Dunstan Thompson. Dr Thompson has been a well-known local General Practitioner for 14 Years. He was previously at Ocean Shores Skin Cancer Clinic for six years and Tweed Heads Skin Cancer Clinic. He has also worked in Byron Bay, Cabarita, Pottsville and also Murwillumbah Emergency. He’s a Member and Fellow of The Royal College of General Practice in the UK and in Australia, respectively, and a Member of The Australian Skin Cancer College. He does ongoing education and exams in skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, with these colleges. He is very thorough, has a pleasant manner, and is an excellent diagnostician and surgeon. He makes personal phone calls for results of suspicious lesions, and discusses cases with colleagues, Pathologists and Dermatologists. Dr Fariborz Mokhtarpour has a special interest in Musculoskeletal Medicine and joint injections. Dr John Chua’s special interests are HIV, Sexual Health and clinical research as well as tropical medicine, rural and indigenous health. The Resident Podiatrist is Greg Pooley who can prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Dr Pooley can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems, including

toenail problems, such as thickened, fungal or ingrown toenails, corns and calluses. Dietician Nina Kelly can assist residents in all areas of nutrition including weight management, eating disorders, Gastrointestinal issues, diabetes, mindful eating, chronic kidney disease, Parkinsons, dementia, Coeliac disease, and much more. Nina can provide a nutritional recommendation tailored to an individual’s specific needs. Nina works out of the Cabarita Beach Health Centre every second Tuesday, however she also makes home visits if needed. Psychologist Soraya Motala is focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. Dr Prashanti Veeramachaneni, psychiatrist with a special interest in elderly care, is providing care for people with dementia, Alzheimers and other mental health issues with her team. She provides care from this centre as well as via telehealth consultations. She treats adults, teens and children with issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep disorders and much more. The Centre is the only bulk billing medical centre in the area and also offers a number of services such as immunizations, travel advise, medicals, work cover, wound care, minor surgery and family health. On top of all this, they have an in-house Pathology service and bulk billing so you can use Cabarita Beach Health Centre as a one-stop-shop. You can now book online at www.hotdoc. com.au or call (02) 6676 4027.

MURWILLUMBAH FIRE & Rescue were called to a house fire at Uki Street, Murwillumbah, on Wednedsday, July 11, at 5.09am after the residents were woken up by a smoke alarm. Firefighters said on arrival they saw smoke billowing from the house with an active fire in a downstairs storage room. “All persons were out of the house, but we were notified that the family pet was still inside,” a statement from fire crews said. “Four firefighters using breathing apparatus with hose lines entered the house and attacked the fire while two of the firefighters searched the house for any occupants and the family dog. “In one of the rooms a small dog “Chewie” was found hiding in the corner in thick smoke.” Firefighters said they removed the dog from the house but found Chewie was struggling to breath. “NSW paramedics treated the dog at the scene with oxygen,” firefighters said. “The dog made a great recovery.” The fire was contained to one room of the house and was believed to have started in a freezer in a storage room. “Thankfully the house had working smoke alarms which alerted the residents to fire,” firefighters said. Residents have extended their appreciation to Murwillumbah Firefighters and Tweed Heads Firefighters for their assistance as well as Police and Ambulance officers.

THE ORIGIN is over. Have NSW gone the clean sweep or did Qld salvage something? I’m hoping Qld can win in Brisbane for the great Billy Slater in his first game as captain and last Origin match for the kid from Innisfail. However, they have been disjointed through injury and the blues looked poised to benefit and clean sweep in my opinion. Billy is a true inspiration for any young footballer, especially small ones, with dreams of making it to the big time. Packing up his life and moving away from his family to give it a shot and he goes on to become the best fullback of the modern era and achieve every accomplishment in the game, add to that a gentleman off the field and Billy leaves a pretty good legacy behind in the Qld jumper for Ponga to take over. The split round threw up some interesting results with Canberra finding a way to win on the back of an incredible 14 minutes from Blake Austin. I wasn’t impressed with the way Joey Leiluia carried on after the try, humility is a special gift. Hard to believe someone who can win a game like Austin did is unwanted by NRL clubs - must be more to it than his football ability but he heads to Warrington

in the UK superleague for 3 years. I think he will be a star over there in the attack orientated competition. The Storm Dragons game was ravaged by Origin duty but looked more like an u/20’s match with over 80 points scored. At 32-30 the game was in the balance before, again, 14 minutes of fury from the Storm put the Dragons to bed and catapulted the Rabbits to top of the table on for and against. The Titans were good against the Tigers last week then the Broncos (who aren’t exactly flying) put them to the sword with a polished 34-0 demolition. The Titans unfortunately are in the same boat as the last five years and don’t look to have the artillery to threaten the top 8 at all. Great to see the legends of league game on and Preston Campbell have the grandstand named after him for all his work off the field, one of the good guys. NRRRL comp saw the defending premiers Ballina knock off Cudgen to land in outright fourth. Mustangs led 8-6 early in the second stanza before falling away to Raiders who remain equal on top with Cudgen and Mullumbimby. The Stangs have a big few weeks coming up taking on Mullumbimby on Saturday and then the Charity match against Cudgen the following Saturday at Stan Sercombe Oval. See you at the Footy, Quinny

Uki Ball a huge hit with locals

THE UKI Ball took place on Saturday, July 7, in one of the largest country halls in the Tweed Shire. The Uki Primary School provided their students with dance lessons during their physical education programs which came in handy at the ball. The Uki P&C took on the organisation and running of the Uki Ball some years ago and hosted the largest ball of the 2018 season so far. All ages enjoyed the evening with a variety of new vogue and other dance style sets as the band Trilogy set the pace. The judges on the night were Garry Wall and Laura Raymond. There are only two balls left before the Tweed Final Ball in Murwillumbah on August 11. The Tyalgum Ball will be held on Saturday, July 21, and Chillingham Ball on Saturday, July 28.

Opera Australia to bring Madame Butterfly

OPERA AUSTRALIA (OA) will bring John Bell’s highly acclaimed production of Puccini’s classic Madame Butterfly to Murwillumbah for one special performance on Tuesday, August 7. Directed by John Bell, one of Australia’s greatest theatrical minds, this year’s production features some of Opera Australia’s finest singers including Chinese-born Sharon Zhai who will make her Opera Australia debut in the role of Cio-Cio-San, also known as Madame Butterfly, which she will share with rising star, Danita Weatherstone. Matthew Reardon will also make his OA debut as Pinkerton, a Lieutenant in the US Navy, and will share the part with Martin Buckingham who reprises the role with OA. Regarded as the world’s most popular opera and the inspiration for the musical Miss Saigon, Madame Butterfly tells the tale of two lovers separated between culture, oceans and time. The vibrant visual display of the production is coloured further by Puccini’s magnificent score, including the famous Humming Chorus and heartbreaking One Fine Day, which is performed with an 11-piece chamber orchestra conducted by Warwick Stengårds. “We are extremely excited to be able to bring Opera Australia back to Murwillumbah,” said local presenter Garry Alcorn. “This is a great addition to the Tweed Valley arts calendar and a must see.”

Opera Australia’s national performances not only provide an opportunity for residents of the Tweed to attend the opera, but also for younger locals to become involved in the production through the Children’s Chorus program. “This is a phenomenal opportunity for our kids, being able to learn about and perform opera with Opera Australia right here at home is an experience they won’t forget,” said Murwillumbah Choir Leader Vikki Armour. Over the last four years, Opera Australia has had more than 1,500 children involved in Children’s Choruses across the country and that number is set to grow even higher this year. Under the direction of Regional Children’s Chorus Master Joshua van Konkelenberg, the children are selected by local choir leaders and learn the music from Madame Butterfly before donning costumes and joining the OA artists on stage as part a performing troupe from the world’s third-busiest opera company. Opera Australia’s Artistic Director, Lyndon Terracini is passionate about introducing opera to new audiences and offering Australians across the country the chance to experience opera performances by Australia’s national opera company. “We are thrilled to be bringing this captivating production of Madame Butterfly to audiences this year,” said Mr Terracini. “It is a privilege to have such a high calibre cast and artistic team at the helm, including some of our best local

and international artists, as well as internationally acclaimed conductor Warwick Stengårds who joins us from Vienna, and the iconic John Bell. “This show will absolutely blow audiences away.” Opera Australia’s Madame Butterfly is sung in English and will be staged at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre on Tuesday, August 7, at 7.30pm. Tickets are awavileble online at murwillumbahopera. com. For further information, phone 0416 196 985.

MAMMA MIA! HERE WE GO AGAIN

80117

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals

A new blockbuster is coming to town. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is the sequel to the original 2008 hit Mamma Mia!, the musical that delighted audiences worldwide. A live-action musical sequel is quite uncommon as a film genre, and in fact it took ten years for this movie to be completed. The cast is mostly the same as in the original movie, including Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper and Meryl Streep. The worldwide release date of the sequel is exactly ten years to the month after the original film’s release. The first film ended with the young Sophia meeting her possible three fathers on the eve of her wedding with Sky in her mother Donna’s romantic villa on the Greek Island of Kalokairi. Ten years later, Sophie is pregnant and running her mother’s villa. Her relationship with Sky has been turbulent for a while and Sophie is worried that she can’t manage without her mother around. But with Tanya and Rosie’s guidance – her mum’s best friends - Sophie learns more of Donna’s past: how she fronted The Dynamos, started her villa on the island from nothing, met each one of Sophie’s possible dads and raised a daughter on her own, without a mother to guide her. But then Sophie gets the unexpected visit of someone she had never met: her flamboyant grandmother, Ruby Sheridan, played by Cher - the biggest new name in the sequel, in her first screen role since 2010. However, the real star of the Mamma Mia! franchise is Abba, the Swedish pop super group whose songs power the soundtrack. The first evening screening of the movie in Murwillumbah will be a fundraiser for Tweed Palliative Support and Riding for the Disabled, organized by Sarah-Jane Guinea, a Banana Festival Queen entrant.

TO MARK the 25th anniversary of the Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra, we turn our attention to Lyn McBurney, the person who was there from the very first NRSO performance. Lyn continues to be the linchpin of the orchestra, performing multiple crucial roles as the orchestra manager, dedicated committee member and accomplished musician. Here we ask Lyn some questions about her time with the NRSO. Q: You have been part of the NRSO right from the start, 25 years ago. Could you please tell us what your involvement was at the beginning, and how did it evolve to your current position as the orchestra manager now? A: Mr Barry Singh formed the NRSO as conductor and asked eighteen local musicians to play, consisting of people from Murwillumbah and Lismore. I played in the second violin section in the very first concert and have been playing in the same section ever since. About three years after the orchestra started I was elected President of the NRSO committee and also attended to the catering for the musicians and audience. I remained doing these tasks until the Orchestra Manager left after ten years and Barry Singh asked me to take on the Orchestra Managers position which I have continued to do for the last thirteen years. Q: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also a violinist in the orchestra. How did your music career begin and what other instruments do you play? A: I came from a musical family. My grandfather played violin in an orchestra and my father also played violin and my mother and siblings played other instruments and we had many musical evenings with others in the community and in our home. I play a bit of piano and guitar and had three years singing training with William Pringle. I have sung at many weddings and public functions over the years. I started learning violin as an adult with violin teacher Essie Hawken and had weekly lessons for seven years. I was invited to play in a Theatre Orchestra in high school musical productions which gave me grounding in orchestral playing. During my working life as a Diversional Therapist at various aged care facilities, music was an important part of my work and playing the piano and guitar were very useful in that line of work. Q: What do you have to do as the Orchestra Manager for the NRSO? A: I contact various musicians, about 60, to form the orchestra for each concert and organise the rehearsals and performances and ensure the musicians get their music to practice beforehand. The musicians come from

Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Tweed District and Lismore District. I post the music to the musicians so they can practice at home before they come to the major rehearsals. I also liaise with the various conductors helping to organise programs for each concert. Other duties include helping to set up the orchestra for a concert and organising printing of posters, flyers and programs and committee meetings and attend to some secretarial work. Q: Please tell us about some of the most memorable NRSO concerts for you, and why they were special. A: One of the most memorable performances was the whole of Swan Lake at Seagulls Leagues Club with full orchestra and the Gold Coast City Ballet. It was special because it was a big production with a lot of rehearsals and the orchestra had to play exactly the right speed for the ballet dancers. Tchaikovsky wrote the most marvellous music which is challenging but very enjoyable to play. The dancers and scenery on stage were beautiful, it was a very lovely production. Other memorable occasions were the two Australian Story concerts the ABC did with NRSO featuring Conductor Barry Singh, held at QPAC in Brisbane. Concerts held at Gold Coast Arts Centre and Seagulls Leagues Club where we performed some Strauss concerts with ballroom dancers and ballet dancers. NRSO has performed with many wonderful soloists over the years and currently holds concerts in Tweed Heads Civic Centre. Q: What is your favourite piece of classical music, and has the NRSO played it? A: I really like the New World Symphony by Antonin Dvorak and have played it with the NRSO three times over the years.

Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art launches at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre on Friday, July 27, and it’s not to be missed. Experimenta Make Sense is an immersive and interactive exhibition that investigates how we ‘make sense’ of the world; how we use our senses to make sense; and, how we make sense through making. Curated by Jonathan Parsons and Lubi Thomas, the exhibition features the work of 20 Australian and international artists who engage with contemporary technology, including video, virtual reality, robotics, mechanics, computer software and electronics in playful and thought-provoking ways. “The exhibition expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age,” Experimenta Artistic Director Jonathan Parsons said. “Both playful and thought provoking, this exhibition asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’,

Has Your Hot Water System Been Checked Lately? Ever Heard of a Sacrificial Anode?

A sacrificial anode is a vital part of your water system, and having it inspected can be the difference between an efficiently working system and a costly replacement. Manufacturers recommend that you maintain the anode in your system in order to prevent damage from rust + corrosion. THE ANODE IN YOUR SYSTEM SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO CORRODE AWAY, WHATEVER TYPE OR BRAND OF SYSTEM YOU HAVE SOLAR, ELECTRIC, GAS OR HEAT PUMPS Cutaway section of a typical electric hot water heater

FOR A LIMITED TIME we will check your anode in the Tweed & Gold Coast area FREE OF CHARGE.

Tweed Shire Photo of the week Tweed 4WD Club makes donation

THERE HAVE been plenty of incredible photos taken across the Tweed Shire this week. Among them was this gem by Kynnumboon resident Shan Norris of a Tawny Frogmouth. Shan told The Weekly that she took the photo on Sunday, July 8, at her property. “I was using my Samsung S9, it takes fantastic photos,” she said. “I really enjoy taking shots of wildlife and bush scenery, it’s amazing what little details come to life in the bush even if it’s a shot of a leaf on the ground.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Have you got a cracking photo you would like to see in print? Send your images with details to editor@theweekly.net.au

TWEED VALLEY 4WD Club has kindly donated $1,500 to Wedgetail Retreat run by Tweed Palliative Support. The cheque was handed to Tweed Valley Palliative Care president Meredith Dennis on Tuesday, July 10, outside the Tweed Palliative Support store. Tweed Valley 4WD Club president Jo Carter said during the club’s meeting on Wednesday last week they decided to donate the fund to Wedgetail. “These funds represent the proceeds from recent fundraising efforts by the Club,” he said.

“The Tweed Valley 4WD Club has been active in the Tweed community for 21 years and currently has 20 members.”

CASUARINA RESIDENT Emma Killick and her daughter Isla-Mae were walking on Casuarina Beach on Saturday, July 7, when they came across a large sand sculpture of a turtle. “We stumbled across this marvellous creation,” Emma told The Weekly. “We were both in awe and were amazed by the sheer size and detail. “I couldn’t help but wonder how many hours went into creating it.

“So generous of the creators for leaving it whole for everyone passing by to appreciate.”

How’s that for a sand sculpture

Holding with Shot Judy Tuckey TBDBA CHAMPION of Club Champions Pairs Championships began at Brunswick Heads last week with the preliminary round resulting in Condong’s Jim and Tom Knight defeating Ocean Shores’ Graeme Condi and Danny Hayer, Pottsville’s Paul and Darcy Earl downing Bangalow’s Jeff Nolan and Shane Mahoney, Cabarita’s Darren Black and Greg Goode defeating Byron Bay’s Sam Skehan and Gavin McPhail. Cudgen Leagues’ Don Jenner and Les Browning went forward via forfeit from Kingscliff’s Steve Massey and Greg Sawtell. With four teams left in the equation, on rink five Cudgen Leagues were challenging Cabarita in a game that evolved into a one sided event. Cabarita struck early, and dominating throughout the match, claimed a final berth with a solid margin. On rink seven, a family affair was taking place with

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals Pottsville’s father and son combination confronting the Condong brothers. Team Earl skipped away to a handy 12-1 lead after 6 ends before the Knights fired up. In a great fight back, the Condong lads clawed their way back to be 19 -18 up coming into the last end. A nail biting final end ensued with Pottsville collecting two shots to claim a berth in the final. The final of this event did not eventuate with one of the Cabarita lads away on holidays in Darwin, the team was required to forfeit and Pottsville’s Paul and Darcy Earl were declared the winners of this championship. The Women’s Pairs Final at Kingscliff with Robin Evans (Skip) and Jenny White challenging Sandra Akers (Skip) and Di Jones resulted in an action packed contest as the ladies duelled for supremacy. With the lead alternating throughout this hard fought game, team Evans picked up a count of five on the 16th end to hit the front again with a two shot lead, then followed that with a single. In a nail biting crucial last end, team Akers was limited to a single allowing Robin and Jenny to claim victory. Great game, ladies. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

Cudgen Hornets knocked from top of ladder with loss to Ballina

Cudgen Hornets in action against Ballina, photo Tim Morrisey

THE CUDGEN Hornets have been knocked from the top of the table by an in-form Ballina Seagulls, going down 26-14 on Sunday July 8 at Ballina. Cudgen coach Pat Rosser said that Ballina are “a good team across the park”. “The score was 26-14 and that two try difference reflected the difference in the teams in the pressure Ballina built around their kicking game and their defence in slowing our ruck down,” Rosser said. “It was a fairly even game, a nice, fast physical game in that first 40 minutes. “We were up two tries to one and then they scored a try off a kick just before halftime.” Rosser said his side had started well before losing some momentum. “There were times when we had really good field position

Adaptive Surfing Titles on t he Tweed Coast t his Weekend

THIS SATURDAY will see some really inspirational surfers hit the beaches of the Tweed Coast, for the 2018 Australian Adaptive Surfing Titles. They use the word Adaptive, as they, like all surfers, adapt to the conditions, but they have to adapt to disabilities they have. They love surfing and what some of the surfers have to do just to get out there is amazing and inspirational. Surfers compete in different categories from AS1 (Stand/Kneel – AS-1UL - Upper Limb impairment, AS-1LL - Lower Limb impairment), AS2 (Stand/ Kneel), AS3 Seated, AS4 (Prone), and AS5 (Non-stand / Assist). How some of these people get into the water, let alone surf at the level they do is amazing. Pottsville surfer Dale Taylor loves competing, and this will be his 3rd Australian Adaptive Titles, Australian Champion in 2016, and runner-up in 2017 in his category (AS-1LL).

“I’m really looking forward to this years Australian Adaptive Titles, and hoping to go one better this year, after coming second in the 2017 event and regain my Australian title from 2016,” said Taylor, who also doubles as Pottsville’s oldest grommet. “I love the camaraderie all the adaptive athletes have for each other. “We’re expecting a huge field of surfers this year. “With competitors coming from as far away as WA and SA, who will be joined by surfers from NSW,VIC and QLD.” Dale Taylor is hoping for a good crowd to watch them do what they love. “We are all hoping, as competitors, to have a large crowd on hand again this year,” he said. “As Adaptive surfers, we only want one thing and that is to put on a great event and showcase where Australian Adaptive Surfing is at in this point in time. “We’d love to see you all there supporting us this Saturday and like me get inspired by what you see.” The event at this stage will be held somewhere on the Tweed Coast, at present organisers are looking at Kingscliff, just North of the Bowls Club. To find out the venue, call the Surfing Queensland Event Hotline on (07) 3030 6388 from around 6.30am, with the first heats hitting the water from around 8am.

Pioli Runner-up in Whalebone Classic in WA

Coolangatta Longboarder Dale Pioli has topped off a great performance, placing 2nd in the Whalebone Classic in Western Australia.

but we didn’t finished our sets well enough and didn’t put Ballina under enough pressure,” he told The Weekly. “The second half we probably conceded a few penalties with a few errors in our half and Ballina is the sort of team that you can’t afford to do that with. “If you hand over possession they can hurt you because they are a crafty team.” Players player was lock Elliot Munnelly, with two points going to Shannon Green and one point to Myles Donnelly Reserve Grade lost 30-26 and slipped to 3rd on the ladder while the Under 18s remain in second place after losing 26-16. The Hornets play Northern United on Friday night, July 13, in Lismore. Reserve grade kick off at 6pm.

Tapped in to the waves

With Terry Tappa’ Teece

Despite some solid surfing from Pioli, which saw him finish with a combined two-wave total of 13.76 (from a possible 20), he couldn’t find a set wave when it mattered the most. “I first won this event back in 2008 and although it’s been a while since I’ve been back over here for it, I remember what makes this event so special,” Pioli said. “I’m really stoked to be here making finals, making some money, making points and qualifying for the World Tour in 2019. “I love longboarding and progressing the sport as far as I can so I can’t complain at all.” In an unbelievable turn of events, both Entwistle & Pioli finished tied on the LQS regional ratings, with a count back required to determine Entwistle as the WSL Australia / Oceanic Regional Champion for 2018.

Lay Days in JBay

Well hopefully the ladies will be back underway at JBay, with laydays from Saturday until Thursday and as this column goes to print the WSL has called for the event to be back on Friday and finishing as well. The goofy footers were in devastating form, and 6 times World Champion, Stephanie Gilmore had a clunky heat by her standards, but did enough to progress directly to the 3rd round. Gilmore should improve the better the waves get, and to tell the truth in her heat the waves were a bit wonky. Hopefully the girls will get some pumping waves to really display their full array of talent. Tune in from 3.30pm Friday arvo, it could be a better option than Friday night football! Go Steph!!

Battle Recharge is coming to Tweed Valley BATTLE RECHARGE will return to the Tweed Shire on Friday, July 27, to Sunday, July 29, marking its 10th anniversary and once again offering cycling enthusiasts a challenging weekend of racing throughout the picturesque Tweed Valley. The Battle will be highlighted by the National Road Series, Australia’s premier domestic road racing series and birthplace of Australia’s future cycling stars. This year will also feature a brand-new time trial course and a new criterium course. The Battle will mark the opening of the NRS women’s campaign, which features some new and rebranded teams. NXsports Race Director Michael Crawley said his organisation are proud to support the development of women’s racing. “We take great pride in the Battle as a showcase for these athletes and women’s racing,” he said.

“The NRS title is going to be competitive this year once again and we are very excited to welcome this talented field.” Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said last year the event attracted more than 700 overnight visitors who injected $290,000 into the local economy. “The NSW Government is proud to support the 2018 Battle Recharge. We know that investing in events that drive overnight visitation to our regional areas such as the Tweed, puts more heads on hotel beds, diners in our restaurants and shoppers in our boutiques, all driving the local economy”, Mr Provest said. The teams will bring some new names to the peloton; however, one recognisable face is Brisbane’s Jessica Pratt, 20, from the Queensland-based Splatt Lawyers outfit. Pratt, formerly a national champion and Oceania medallist in the under 19s, came to prominence in 2015 at the UCI Junior World Championships where she finished in the top ten in the road race.

She claimed her first UCI win with a stage victory at the Tour de l’Ardeche. The race will also feature the inspirational Georgia Whitehouse, who was seventeen when she was t-boned by a car while on her ride home from school in Taree, northern NSW which left her with chronic injuries. Determined to come back to doing what she loves, Georgia underwent daily rehab strength training and physiotherapy. Fast forward six years, Georgia returned to cycling and less than two years later, started racing with NSWIS and amazed everyone when in her very first NRS Tour, the Tour of King Valley 2017, she won her first stage victory. Partnering with Virgin Airlines, the Battle Recharge will be offering exciting and challenging racing across a memorable three days. Entries are open, to register or get more information on the 27-29 July event, visit: www.BattleRecharge.org.

Sh ting Hoops Tweed Coast Raiders too good for Mustangs

THE WOMEN’S grand final match was played last Wednesday, July 4, between the season’s number one team, Bandits, and a determined Blazers side. The game was very exciting with little between the teams throughout the match. Blazers fought hard with only five players and then four for the final quarter, with their player of the night, Sinead Cootes, fouled out in the last quarter. Bandits proved too good winning the match 32-26 with some exceptional shooting from Marissa Redman. The women’s season kicks off again on Monday, July 23. Murwillumbah Basketball Association also run an Aussie Hoops, Mini-Ball, Junior and Men’s competition with a number of our Junior players competing in the North Coast Shield competition. New players are always welcome and if readers are interested, please call Justin Stillman on 0412 402 893 or visit our Facebook page.

THE TWEED Coast Raiders aren’t slowing down their run to the finals, putting in a strong performance to beat the Murwillumbah Mustangs 26-8 at Murwillumbah on Sunday July 8. Murwillumbah are always a danger playing in front of their home crowd and Mustangs coach Nathan Jordan said his team started well. “It was very similar to our Round 1 game against the Raiders with a very fast and physical contest being played out before a healthy home crowd,” Jordan said. “We were leading 8-6 into the second half when some crucial errors led to Raiders tries and we couldn’t get ourselves back in the game. We are away this Saturday to Mullum which has become a must-win game.” The Raiders were happy to take the win and hold their position on top of the ladder with the player ratings below: 1. Daniel “Rocket” Ross dropped a ball early but was strong at the back as always and finished strong 7/10 2. Darryl Brooks had a solid game against his former club 7/10 3. Jack “the Fox” O’Brien once again lived up to his nickname as a genuine speedster, the Fox took an intercept pass to run 70 metres for a try that sealed the match 8/10 4. Guy “Fridge” Lanston was very hard to contain out wide crossing for a double and was relentless in defence 8/10 5. Justin King had strong runs and great talk in defence 6.5/10 6. Drew “The General” Lanston guided his troops around the park all game like the general he is 7/10 7.
