Power Independence with Solar Batteries

Over half of all Australian homes will have batteries for energy storage in the next ten years...

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

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

24 Hour Solar Power

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

888

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

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

The Truth About the

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

REAL Cost of Solar Batteries...

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

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

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

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

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

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

NSW Solar bonus scheme ends this year!

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

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

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

Council had several concerns with the application to expand the road with the main concerns being the earthworks required on the steep road, pavement designs, road widening at particular bends and environmental impacts. Urliup Road does not currently comply with Council’s contemporary rural road standards and is classed as a lowvolume rural road. Council noted that any upgrade of the road would be a compromise of Council contemporary rural standards and would carry liability risks. The Karlos Family Trust has been extracting water for commercial purposes from 477 Urliup Road for the past 14 years. The 477 Urliup Road site is licensed to extract a total of 60 megalitres per year across three bores, however extraction is currently limited to 28 megalitres per year under the development application until specific sections of Urliup Road are widened. The original approval by Council in August 2003 imposed conditions that no deliveries be permitted during school bus hours, for trucks no greater than six-metres in length and delivery movements restricted to two trips per day. In 2012, Council began receiving complaints that large articulated vehicles were being used for water deliveries from the subject site more frequently than authorised. Council refused an application in 2015 that was initially submitted in 2013 to increase truck sizes to 14-metres and allow for a maximum of six trips per day. In March 2015 council approved a one-year trial to increase the number of trips per day from two to ten whilst still utilising six-metre trucks.

TWEED SHIRE Councillors have voted against an application to increase water extraction using 19-metre trucks at Urliup Road, in what has become a fiercely debated topic centred around road use and the future of water resources. The Karlos Family Trust, operating out of 477 Urliup Road, submitted two applications to Council earlier this year, the first being a modification to their currently approved limit of six-metre trucks to 19-metre trucks whilst, the second was a new application that sought to approve upgrading works to Urliup Road to allow for larger truck movements. The application was raised during Council’s May Ordinary Meeting at Tweed Heads on Thursday, May 11, and resulted in a five to two vote to deny the motion. Councillors supported a recommendation made by council officers for refusal, despite an amendment raised by Councillor Warren Polglase and Cr Pryce Allsop who proposed that Council “supports the modification application in principle, with consideration for 10-metre trucks and conditions be brought back to the Planning Committee on June 1”. The amendment motion was voted down four to three. The refusal cited not being “in the public interest”, which has signalled an early victory to concerned locals, many of whom campaigned against the application, however, an appeal option is now open to the applicant. Several Urliup Road residents have already written to The Weekly expressing how pleased they are with the decision. Urliup Road resident Nick Cropp expressed the negative impacts of increasing the tanker size from six metres to 19 metres would have on both the environment and the community. “We were all relieved by the outcome of preventing the large double semi-trailer tankers on a rural road but it is only a small win,” he said. “Water extraction is still happening and impacts of this can have long term effects on the local hydrological systems that could take hundreds or even thousands of years to recharge water back into the groundwater systems.” Mr Cropp also stressed the frequency of road repairs now required at Urliup Road. “Urliup Road has been sustaining continual damage from the heavy water tankers and has been continually repaired by council road crews at ratepayers expense,” he said. “When we used to see a road crew maybe once a year to patch the roads before the tankers were running, we now see road crews repairing the road nearly every second month. “After the recent floods the road was badly damaged and was closed.” Other residents wrote to The Weekly and said they are continuing to campaign against a Rowlands Creek Road water extraction application yet to be determined. Uki resident Simone Fox, who lives on Chowan Creek Road welcomed Council’s decision. “This decision will not effect me personally as I do not live on Urliup Road,” she said. “But, if I may add, in the bigger picture as I do live in Chowan Creek Road, Chowan Creek and with this decision, it does bring with it a glimmer of hope as it may bring attention to the road safety when making a final decision to the water harvesting in Rowland’s Creek Road and this does effect me directly.” The applicant had proposed works to 13 bends along Urliup Road stretching approximately 4km. When originally lodged works were only proposed to three bends, however in November 2016 the amended plans showed works to 13 bends. The applicant estimated the cost of the works to be $260,230, which they said they would will pay and requested for Council to fund the remainder to upgrade the road to Council’s satisfaction.

Lessons learned from flood

Replying to “GM defends council’s flood action and fleet loss” (TDN April 10). Rainfall and flooding for the Tweed has been recorded and documented since the 1880s (the most detailed in the State), however, not even Council looking at computer modelling set out in the Flood Plain Study Report by their Brisbane Consultants, could foretell the 2017 flood. Unfortunately factual information from those who have been through the experience is generally ignored in favour of the modelling which did in fact take into account a one in one hundred year flood (which we had). However, computers can only tell so much and the only true account is a factual one. There is nothing like a visual sighting of the river as it rises for accuracy and prediction. Since Council have ceded their authority to Woollongong SES for flooding predictions and warnings, nothing has been as accurate as the local people who used to give river readings every hour, half hour, 15 minutes. People on the ground relaying what’s happening upstream is the ultimate, as it used to be in the 70s when we first came to town to open up a business in South Murwillumbah. Mr Christostomes from the SES is also correct in saying people do not know how to read the “BOM Site”. 2017 saw us go to flood warnings on the site which lists all river readings relevant to our area and as far south and beyond Lismore. We monitored the rivers upstream at Uki, Tyalgum, Chillingham which showed levels rising and looking at the river itself we knew a flood was imminent at South Murwillumbah. Tweed Shire Council should: 1. Consider a method for visual river readings. 2. Find a way to communicate effectively with people in the

Why the big defence spend?

One aspect of the budget that has received no critical comment in an era of ‘budget emergency’ is Defence. The Liberals are upping Defence spending from $32billion a year to $58billion a year. We are not at war. We are not under attack and we have no defined enemy. This profligate spending is madness when scarce funds are needed for infrastructure, schools and hospitals. Ray Armstrong, Tweed Heads

Airport polution a big issue for Tweed

I could not believe my eyes and ears as I sat in the gallery of the Tweed Shire Council meeting on March, 16 when Councillors Warren Polglase, James Owen and Pryce Allsop voted against a motion tabled by Mayor Katie Milne and Deputy Mayor Chris Cherry requesting “information on the current and predicted air pollution levels and numbers of residents in the Tweed directly affected by aircraft emissions and noise impacts from the Gold Coast Airport.” As I understand Councillor Polglase and Cr Owen’s voter bases are concentrated in the Banora Point, Tweed West, Kingscliff, Casuarina and Salt localities all of which will be affected by new developments proposed for the Gold Coast Airport. I often wonder how many of the people who vote for these Councillors know what they are doing. David Norris, Pottsville

paper “Feed in tariff could go up”. Credit must be given to MP Thomas George for asking IPART to increase the value of power produced by solar customers. I, and I’m sure every other customer, would totally agree that it should go up. However, I would strongly suggest that the value should be a percentage, 50 per cent at least of the retail price that the Energy Companies charge us. That way, it will automatically be adjusted to any future price creep (or leap). Alan Davis, Pottsville

High hopes for boardwalk to be repaired

T h e S av e O u r B o a r dw a l k Group has written to the Mayor, Tweed Shire Council requesting support for the following council recommendation which is to be presented to a council meeting at the Harvard Room, Tweed Heads Administration Building Tweed Heads on May 18. Recommendation: Identifies and allocates $30,000 to repair the superstructure of the Anchorage Island Boardwalk, and reopens the facility; Notes the condition and design deficiency of the existing piles; Implements a program of ongoing monitoring and maintenance of the boardwalk to ensure ongoing public safety; Establishes a reserve to fund removal of the existing facility and replace it, if it is intended that a facility should be maintained in this location for anything in excess of five years. Our group is optimistic that with councillors indicating their previous support, together with considerable support from our community, the above recommendation will be approved which could allow an early repair of our Tweed Heads boardwalk. If the above recommendation is approved, the Save Our Boardwalk Group requests that council quickly repairs the boardwalk and further requests that council investigates, whether financial assistance could be sought from the NSW Government, that would allow the future upgrade of our much loved residential and tourist boardwalk. Please seek new support for our online petition at http://chn.ge/2dPO27w Richard W Murray, Save Our Boardwalk Group

Plastic bags can be recycled

In the May 4 edition of the Tweed Valley Weekly, Andia Cally states that after a single use, plastic bags end up as litter or as landfill. Well I have some good news for Andia. Both Woolies and Coles have bins at the front of their stores clearly marked for customers to leave their plastic bags for recycling. All of my plastic bags go to recycling in this way. Ken Window, Tweed

Local radio did great job during floods

I was very sorry to read that so many people don’t know about the wonderful efforts that staff at our local ABC radio station, based in Lismore, make to report on emergencies. I was away at the time, but I believe that they were on air 24 hours from 6am on the Thursday morning until Saturday afternoon. Their work started before it got really dire for Murwillumbah, but a lot of warnings were read and people told to prepare to evacuate, then the SES sent out the message at 1pm to evacuate South Murwillumbah and Tumbulgum, and later for Chinderah, Tweed Heads South, Kingscliff and Bilambil. This was the first warning of flooding for many people. The ABC is always on air 24 hours in emergency situations and gives us wonderful help. You can find them at 94.5FM or 7.20AM. Barbara Waters, Murwillumbah

Why can’t we ban the bag?

If Ireland can do it, if Portugal can do it and if our little Tassie can successfully do it – just to name a few – why do we sit on our hands in NSW and not ban single-use plastic bags? How much more plastic, nonbiodegradable waste do we need to put into our land and marine environment before the government takes the plunge? How much more information do we need on the huge impacts within our marine environment? As Andrew Bennett states (letters 11.5.17), Australians use about 3.9 billion single use plastic bags a year. The notion of being called a ‘smart country’ feels pretty hollow. C’mon pollies take the lead.

The Murwillumbah to Casino rail corridor is safer after the State Government introduced legislation to preserve another rail corridor in south eastern NSW, between Rosewood and Tumbarumba, this week. Members of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail Inc lobby group welcomed the move by the NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Andrew Constance, to lodge the Transport Administration Amendment (Closure of Railway Line between Rosewood and Tumbarumba) Bill 2017 on 2 May. This bill is model legislation for rail trails across NSW. It ensures their corridor remains in State ownership as a community asset. This Bill will make it faster for similar legislation to be passed for our rail trail. When the legislation for our corridor is passed it will also protect our corridor from sale and development by private interests and keep this valuable community asset for public use. The Snowy Valley Council has been granted $4.8 million to build 22km of rail trail along a closed line between Rosewood and Tumbarumba. Minister Constance has said: “The Rosewood to Tumbarumba Rail Trail will have a positive impact on local communities, providing increased business and tourism opportunities for the surrounding region, as well as enabling better access to this incredible part of our State. The same is true for the Casino to Murwillumbah corridor. There has been great progress on our region’s rail trail. All four councils are actively seeking funding for feasibility, planning and construction of sections of the trail. State and federal governments have indicated support for the Northern Rivers Rail Trail and positive funding announcements should follow. The Northern Rivers community needs to get behind the rail trail and ask our government representatives for the same support given to Tumbarumba.

district. No electricity, no phones, no computer access isolated a lot of people, some for three days, whereas a battery operated radio could give out warnings, road closures etc. 3. The relevant staff who make decisions regarding the planning and safety of the town during floods, should be on the ground so that they can educate not only themselves but others within the Council about what actually occurs. 4. Because Council could not initially help with the massive clean up and considering the urgency for this to happen, a person in authority at Council should be nominated to contact businesses with excavators, skip bins, trucks and machinery to assist. Instead, stressed people had to do this themselves so they could get back to business as quickly as possible. 5. Consider calling a state of emergency and asking the army to assist.

Murwillumbah Citadel to undergo remodel

THE ICONIC Citadel building on Queen Street is set to undergo a major remodeling with plans to create a community performance venue and café. An application was submitted to Tweed Shire Council last week to redevelop the Citadel building that was officially opened in 1920, where it was used up until 1991 by the Salvation Army. The building is recognised as having local heritage and is part of Murwillumbah’s heritage conservation area, which means the frontage of the building will remain the same. Owners of the building Jason Bond and Rosie Evans said they hope to “reuse and revive the building and establish it as a boutique venue for visual and performing arts,” according to the Statement of Environmental Effects prepared by Kellie Shapland Town Planning on behalf of the owners. “Tubas, trumpets, trombones, and euphoniums reverberated for many years within the walls of The Citadel and marching down the streets of Murwillumbah,” the owners said. “Now in the spirit of the early patrons of this building, we hope eclectic music, visual and performing arts will bring people together, in harmony and in unity once again.” The owners also said the redevelopment will provide a meeting place for creative industries and for organisations that have a shared vision of supporting the local community. The report states that the development will respect the heritage values of the building and conserve and maintain

the former Citadel for future generations by undertaking capital works including improved retaining and creation of a termite membrane and using the building to finance its ongoing maintenance. The redevelopment will not make any changes to the existing hall which will be returned to its previous use as a place of assembly and will host performances at night along with being a venue for various community events and art exhibitions during the day. The existing annex building will be adapted to become a cafe and bar which will include an outdoor eating area and be open during and outside of performance times. The upper level of the building will be redeveloped to include a green room, balcony and deck for the use of owners, staff and artists only and not for use by the general public. The building will be accessible with the installation of a lift at the street level to allow access to the ground floor. The application addresses noise concerns and states that performances will mainly occur on weekends. Music would be acoustic only and not amplified. A Noise Level Impact Assessment found that “no unreasonable noise is expected to occur at nearby noise sensitive residents.” A decision on the development application is likely to be made by council in the coming months.

AFTER WEEKS of waiting the South Murwillumbah Post Office is back in action again offering full postage services with a smile. Like many South Murwillumbah businesses, the South Murwillumbah Post Office was completely smashed by rising waters which peaked at about six foot inside the shop. Owners Katherine and Rod Butterworth said they were shocked by the speed of the water and the impact it had to the southside. But they also praised the support from loyal local customers and efforts of bighearted volunteers. “It was a devastating impact to our business and those around us,” Mrs Butterworth said. “I’d like to thank all those hardworking

volunteers who offered the businesses so much assistance and support.” Although Mrs Butterworth had been critical of the support services provided to South Murwillumbah, she said the strength and determination of local businesses to reopen, some within a week of the disaster was testament to the region’s determination and passion. “We would like to thank all our customers new and old who supported us during this tough time,” she said. “We’re pleased to be back up and running but sadly many of our fellow business operators remain in dire need of support.” You can find the South Murwillumbah Post Office at 22 Prospero Street or phone (02) 6672 2641

We have had four demountable classrooms delivered and  fi�ed out in record �me. These are now fully func�oning,  providing all of the facili�es our staff and students need.

Blues to visit Murwillumbah

THE NSW Blues will spend eight days training on the Tweed in preparation for game one of the 2017 Holden State of Origin Series. The Blues will check it at Mantra on Salt on Tuesday, May 23, morning and the whole team is expected to travel to Murwillumbah in the afternoon to visit flood affected areas, as well as hosting a kids rugby league clinic from 3pm to 4pm. Blues media manager John Chammas told The Weekly that footy fans and the local media will be given the chance to meet the Blues side in Murwillumbah on Tuesday. Mr Chammas said the new Blues side would be announced on Monday, May 22, with heavy speculation from national media sources around who’s in and who’s out. According to NRL news, Parramatta halfback Peter Sterling, who is acting as a support for coach Laurie Daley, also picked the Emerging Blues squad, which is likely to include Tom and Jake Trbojevic, Nathan Clearly, Shannon Boyd and Nathan Peats,

for game one. A new hooker might be necessary for the Blues, with Robbie Farah changing clubs and not assured of game time while Michael Ennis has drifted off into retirement. A replacement for Paul Gallen and a new captain will also be needed for the Blues, while speculation about who will make up the halves combination will continue until the moment the team is announced. After attending the series launch alongside coach Laurie Daley and the Queensland brains trust, Aaron Woods was firming as favourite to captain the Blues in 2017, but an injury has since ruled him out of at least the first game and potentially the whole series. With Woods out, it rules him out of the captaincy debate and leaves Daley searching for both a captain and a replacement front rower, with Woods locking down that position by playing 11 games since his debut in 2013. Game one of the 2017 Holden State of Origin will take place on Wednesday, May 31.

Concerns holiday letting could strangle rental market A SHORTFALL in Tweed rentals could relate to the rise of unlawful Tweed holiday letting across the shire with fresh concerns around how short-term letting could help or hinder future housing demand. Tweed Shire Councillors recently carried a motion to investigate a holiday let that had been allegedly operating for several years at 6 Beason Court, Casuarina. Neighbouring residents have now complained to Council that the property is being used to host parties and functions. The property in question is operated by a private booking website that offers the luxury home for more than $2,000 for two nights or upwards of $3,000 per week. According to Council, short-term rentals are currently prohibited in the Tweed Shire in all rural areas and the majority of residential areas. Known as “Unlawful Land Use”, Tweed Shire Councillors recently carried a motion to investigate the Casuarina site with the potential for further action. The action calls into question a developing industry of holiday letting and in late 2016 a NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into holiday letting across the state had recommended holiday letting be allowed with conditions. The NSW Government also said they accept many of the recommendations of the NSW Parlimentary Inquiry and that they would release a consultation paper on potential regulatory approaches to short-term holiday letting “in the near future”. The State Government has given qualified support for short-term letting of rooms where a landlord is present or of a principal residence, to be exempt from a development application. The Government also has given qualified support to shortterm letting of properties up to a certain number of days per year, to be determined by the Department of Planning. A compliance system will be investigated by the Government who said there is already a strong compliance system in place under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, which includes the Holiday and Short-Term Rental Code of Conduct and ‘party house’ provisions. Tweed Shire Council told the Parlimentary Inquiry there are upwards of 2,000 short-term holiday lettings in the Tweed and recently noted that there are more than 30 homes which are currently used for short-term rental accommodation within Casuarina and apart from a few authorised properties the remainder are all classified as

“unlawful land uses”. “The short-term rental accommodation of the subject premises has allegedly been occurring for approximately four years with no complaints having been registered with Council until February 13, 2017,” council documents said. Neightbours Not Strangers Convener Trish Burt recently wrote to Tweed Shire Councillors and The Weekly to highlight what she said was an increase in holiday letting including what she said is the loss or strangling of the Tweed rental market. “A check of Airbnb and Expedia’s Internet platforms shows that there are in fact, at minimum, 118 homes in the suburb of Casuarina being let as Tourist/Visitor Accommodation,” she said. “This issue has been front and centre of our efforts for the past six years. Our Organisation, Neighbours Not Strangers, is pro-home sharing, eg sharing a home with a housemate or flatmate - a fellow resident. “In free-standing dwellings we also welcome the concept of a licensed, regulated Bed and Breakfast operation catering to tourists/visitors. “That said, mixing unregulated short-term Tourist/ Visitor Rentals with Permanent Occupancy in residential strata buildings and residential zones is, as repeatedly and “consistently judged by the NSW Land and Environment Court, “fundamentally incompatible”.” “We have a ‘housing crisis’ across much of NSW. Is there any other Unlawful Land Use that would/has been so completely ignored in your Local Government Area.” Tweed Shire Council has proposed an amendment to their Local Environment Plan (LEP) which will recognise the use of a property for short term letting as an exempt development up to a maximum of 60 days a year. Owners wanting to make their property available beyond this period will be able to submit a development application for a merit assessment. Short-term rentals can be an issue for residents of strata buildings and the committee has recommended that the NSW Government considers amendments to strata regulations to give owners corporations more powers to manage and respond to adverse behaviour resulting from short-term letting in their buildings. YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe short-term rentals should be permitted? Email your letter to editor@theweekly. net.au or drop your letter at The Weekly office 1/12 Queen Street, Murwillumbah.

Families are encouraged to visit their fire station and meet their local firefighters as well as serving as a timely reminder to check smoke alarms and put in place fire prevention plans. SES volunteer and experienced rescue operator Kenny Harrison said it was a great chance to visit the Murwillumbah Station for kids and adults. “Kids always enjoy seeing the trucks and it is a great day out for the whole family,” he said. “I hope to see a lot of the local community at the station this weekend.” Each station will have a range of free activities on offer, including firefighting demonstrations, station tours and fire safety presentations. The Open Day is also a great opportunity to talk to firefighters on how you can protect your home from fire. For more information about the open days, visit www.fire.nsw. gov.au

A PROPOSAL to demolish the former Aquatic Club building at Dry Dock Road in Tweed Heads South, is currently on public exhibition. The owner of the site submitted their application to Council last month and wants to demolish the current building and subdivide the land into two separate lots. The applicant has entered into a contract of sale for part of the site to Park Investment Partners (PIP) and for the sale to go ahead the site needs to be subdivided. The 7.2 hectare site has changed hands several times over the years, selling for a whopping $11 million in 2007, followed by a $7 million loss in 2013 to sell for $4 million, according to realestate.com.au. According to the Statement of Environmental Effects prepared by Cardno, the building which was recently burnt has “reached the end of its economic and functional life and needs to be removed to facilitate the planned redevelopment of the site”.

A gazebo, pathways, concrete surrounds, landscape beds and internal build outs would also be removed. The proposed development would result in the creation of Lot 10 (3.10Ha) and Lot 11 (4.50Ha). The site currently has approval from Council to construct a tourist facility comprising a tavern, café, restaurant, function room, playground, amphitheatre and pontoon, as well as a separate approval for a general store. The applicant has proposed the Tourist Facility approval be rescinded. The zoning of the site is RE2 with the objectives of the RE2 zone being to enable land to be used for private open space or recreational purposes, to provide a range of recreational settings and activities and compatible land uses and to protect and enhance the natural environment for recreational purposes. To have your say visit Council’s website and search for DA17/0239.

Sort your venue Once you’ve got engaged and have a wedding date in mind, start looking around for a venue. Good ones often get booked up months in advance so don’t leave it too late. The same applies to the church and the caterers. Being flexible and thinking ahead are key.

Weekend event You want your wedding to be as memorable as possible so why not consider making it a weekend event? The day itself can pass in a flash – having an extra day for an informal barbecue with close family and friends afterwards can make it even more special.

Whatever the weather

Carol’s Place

Don’t worry about the weather Rain creates an atmosphere of its own, so expect it –Sun, if it appears, is a bonus. Just arm your bridesmaids and groomsmen with umbrellas and go with the flow.

Short and sweet Keep wedding speeches short. Long ones can kill the momentum and cause all sorts of problems for your schedule. You may also consider saying your speeches before the wedding reception if you are particularly nervous.

Unwanted hair? Do not despair, Carol can help you! Waxing and tinting is her specialty along with Make Up. BY Appointment only

Make-up Artist

Waxing and Tinting

Learn to delegate Make sure you’ve got a good team of friends to help out on the day. Give them a list so they know what’s happening and don’t be afraid to delegate jobs. On the day, all the bride should be doing is relaxing and enjoying herself.

Do your prep

What could you do yourself? DIY are often a great way to keep costs down,.– after all, it’s your big day, and people want to help

Simple food Don’t over-complicate your wedding menu. Plain food is often the best and simple, seasonal produce will suit even the fussiest of eaters.

Changes to recreational space document angers action group focussed on larger group fitness training that was being run by private personal trainers in some of our public parks. “We had received complaints from local residents and other park users who were being disturbed very early in the morning by large groups,” she said. “As the consultation progressed and workshops were held internally with staff and councillor’s other issues emerged that we believed the policy needed to also address. “Additionally, over this time staff tested the draft policy against a number of enquiries received to conduct various commercial activities. “The nature of proposals received is broad and varied and the draft policy was finessed where required in response to these and other proposals and emerging issues. “We are quite happy to share the original document with anyone interested as well as the latest version that has attempted to cover other activities private operators are wanting to conduct in our public open spaces.” Ms Stinson said the concern may have stemmed from the reduction of the requirement for a buffer from residents from 100 metres to 50 metres. “When the 100m buffer zone is tested, it excludes the conducting of activities from a large percentage of our most popular parks,” she said. “This would have the undesirable impacts of concentrating activities to a few areas within the Shire and creating a significant compliance impost in many of the Shire’s popular parks and the associated conflict that would ensue. “The revised policy moves to a more common-sense approach that takes into consideration the nature of the proposed activity and the location in determining the acceptability of the impacts.” Tweed Shire Council General Manager Troy Green hosted a meeting with three members of the SJEBH group to explain the situation and wanted to emphasise that there was “no intension to erode the policy for Jack Evans Boat Harbour or other recreational open spaces”. Mr Green also suggested a separate policy be developed for Jack Evans Boat Harbour to further reassure residents that there’s no underlying motive or cause to raise concerns. “Council will always ensure we’re acting in the best interests of residents and the community and each application to use recreational space across the shire will be assessed on its merits,” he said.

High Electricity Bills? Everyone will start seeing their electricity bills coming in and there

are going to be some people suffering from shock. The high electricity bills are a result of air-conditioners over the summer season or the 60 cent feed-in tariff finishing in December for solarsystem owners. The good news is that you can reduce your electricity by installing a solar system or even help the battery revolution by installing batteries on your house.

The matter has now been handed to Tweed Shire Councillors who are expected to discuss and vote on the next course of action during the Ordinary Meeting on Thursday, May 18. Both Mayor Katie Milne and Deputy Mayor Cr Chris Cherry were present during the meeting and both agreed there was a mix-up that needed to be clarified. “Unfortunately, after the mix-up with the policies, last week’s meeting was aimed to diffuse the concern within the community and, as you are probably aware, the paperwork provided at that meeting, had every second page missing from the copies we were given, which has only served to heighten the suspicion within the community,” Cr Cherry said. “Katie and I are meeting tomorrow again with representatives of the JEBH group to talk through their concerns on this. “I think we, at Council, are going to have to work very hard to dispel the growing fear that something is amiss on this and really work with the community to make sure that what goes on exhibition is viewed as a sound and fair document. “People are really highly invested in what goes on in their local open spaces, and who is given the right to essentially use those spaces, sometimes to the exclusion of others, and for what time period and how often.” Cr Cherry said Council remains willing to put their hand up and “own up to some mistakes on the process this policy has taken so far”. “And perhaps part of that is trying to lump large, high impact commercial uses of our parks into the same policy that is dealing with personal trainers and yoga classes in the park,” she said. Ms Stinson said areas where there may be the perception the draft policy has been weakened is where sections have been removed because the information is either “stated elsewhere such as legislation or is more appropriate in licence conditions”. “The revised draft also contains additions that may be considered to ‘strengthen’ the document such as S 1.8.3 which ensures activities with potentially larger impacts will be referred to Council for determination,” she said. She said Council had not “no intention to hide anything about the policy documents or the process”. “The whole objective was just to have some fair rules around the commercial use of our public areas that are also practical to administer and implement to ensure we all get the chance to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle without creating conflict or concern from others,” she said.

MEMBERS OF Save Jack Evans Boat Harbour (SJEBH) say they are furious with Tweed Shire Council over what they believe was “disregard” for a public document that had provided guidelines around commercial use of public open spaces - a document which they believe helped spare the iconic harbour from inflatable fun parks and other activities. However, Council has refuted this claim and has attempted to explain that the document was instead a draft that had not yet been adopted by Council. The document is known as the Commercial Recreation Activities on Public Open Space (CRAPOS) and according to SJEBH members the document was recently taken down from the Tweed Shire Council website and replaced with a new draft document. Council’s Director of Community and Natural Resources Tracey Stinson said the original draft policy document published on the Council website back in 2014, was “intended for consultation purposes as it had not been presented to or adopted by Council”. The issue arose more than a month ago when residents noticed the document in question had gone missing from Council’s website on March 17 and was replaced with a new draft document. Members of SJEBH said the original document had extensive community consultation in 2015 and the “community had agreed on this document at the time”. SJEBH secretary Stephanie Deane flagged the issue with Council as well as The Weekly and is demanding answers as to why the original document was removed and or changed. Ms Deane said Council’s meeting agenda for March 16 this year included Item 13 Draft Commercial Recreation Activities of Public Open Space Policy,” she said. “Of interest is the report on page 140 of the Agenda under the heading Consultation to date, I quote: “An extensive public consultation process was undertaken in early 2015 including 200 letters to stakeholders and three targeted workshops. Twelve submissions were received”. “And yet no one has any knowledge of the original document produced from this extensive public consultation - odd to say the least. “The differences between the original document are too numerous to go through, but one disturbing difference is that Council’s Guiding Principles have changed.” Ms Stinson said the process of consultation was originally

Brothers Leagues Club survives historic flood

Jumble sale to support flood victims A MASSIVE jumble sale to assist flood victims will take place at the Gold Coast Airport retail precinct on Saturday, May 20 and again on Saturday, May 27.

THE BROTHERS Leagues Club in Murwillumbah has bounced back following extensive flood damage during the Tweed disaster with around 25 centimetres over the carpet of the twostorey clubhouse. The water levels had not been seen by club members for the past 35 years and the devastation had claimed fridges, furniture, stock, cabinets and much more – fortunately no memorabilia or historical items were damaged. The club members including the Gentlemen of Murwillumbah Rugby Union team banded together and with a little help from fellow clubs and local businesses along the way, have restored the Brothers Club back to its former glory. Club president Lionel Alexander and secretary Bill Carroll told The Weekly the club was facing more than $100,000 in damages with only around $35,000 so far replaced and more work to be done. “It was huge blow to the club,” Mr Carroll

said. “We had to undertake a lot of the recovery ourselves but we’d also like to acknowledge Twin Towns Services Club for the furniture and Tweed River Jockey Club who shared some of the chairs they received from Sydney.” The club is now back in full swing and is inviting members and visitors to come back and visit. The club has also seen the return of Paul Line and Chrissy Tidmarsh in the restaurant serving up a delicious range of meals at great local rates. The club board also wanted to thank members and Kim Vickery at Aussie Bouncing Bites and the Junior League Committee for assisting the Brothers Club on Anzac Day. Brothers Leagues Club members (pictured below) include Secretary Bill Carroll, board members Ross Cameron and Stephen Day along with president Lionel Alexander and board member Greg Blacklock bar manager.

The jumble sale was arranged by the Tweed Floods Community Drive which is a community group who have been working within the Tweed Shire to assist villages and towns in their flood recovery efforts. The group of three have been providing food packages, coordinating donations, working with local village volunteers in various capacities, and assisting with logistics associated with meeting the needs of the community. The first priority of the Community Drive was collection of non-perishable items including food, personal care, cleaning and clothing donations. Murwillumbah, surrounding villages and the Community Drive have been inundated by donations, so much so there is an excess in comparison to need. Therefore, Tweed Floods Community Drive is turning the excess into cash, to be distributed back to flood affected community members. “Being out and about in the villages immediately after the floods has enabled us to form good relationships with local volunteers”, said co-founder Penny Hockings. “These relationships have helped address local needs quickly and unobtrusively, and to learn firsthand the needs of the community. “Along with the personal losses are community infrastructure losses. It is these kinds of needs that we will be directing money raised from our jumble sale towards. “Anything from assistance with purchasing white goods to helping a village replace their sporting equipment. “We will be directed by the local volunteers we have met within each village as to what they need”

Over the past month, the group have distributed a large amount of donations, called Op Shops, preschools, Wedgetail Palliative Care and spoken with village volunteers to ensure their needs are met. The group know there is a surplus for survivors not ready to accept donations and have created the Jumble Sale to ensure no waste and that donations generously given are turned back into cash so as to meet the needs of survivors in the next phase of their recovery. The large majority of items will be available for a gold coin donation, with bigger ticket items such as prams, strollers, car seats $10$20 and linen $5 a bundle. 100 per cent of money raised will return to flood affected communities. The Jumble Sale will run from 9am to 1pm. “Gold Coast Airport very generously donated commercial space for the Community Drive to store and sort our donations,” said Dot Holdom, co-founder. “Their support has allowed us to organise the mountain of donations, and they continue to support us with additional space to conduct the jumble sale. We couldn’t have done this without them as free space is scarce in the Shire.”

BEATS Awards open for nominations

THE BEATS Awards for Business Excellence in the Tweed Shire is now open for nominations with business owners encouraged to sign up and residents to nominate their favourite local business. The nomination could provide a local business owner a much-needed boost, following the Tweed floods. The BEATS Awards has 20 categories this year including Excellence in Accommodation which is one of several new categories. BEATS coordinator Toni Zuschke said she wanted to encourage both consumers and business operators to nominate any business that had provided high-quality service throughout the year. “It’s important for the Tweed Shire to support their local businesses, especially considering the recent devastation,” Ms Zuschke said. “The main category for tourism is visitor

experience, but it’s a very broad category as it covers all types of tourism operations from parks to festivals. “A lot of the people in the tourism industry are accommodation houses. They were saying they didn’t want to come up against an event, they wanted to come up against other accommodation.” Ms Zuschke said she also encouraged people to nominate their favourite business for the People’s Choice award. “If anyone out there knows of a business that does exceptionally well, has great customer service and goes above and beyond, then go to the website and click on the button (to nominate),” she said. For more information about the BEATS or to nominate a business, visit the website www.beatsawards.com.au - entries close June 12.

Kingscliff Chamber hears from Commonwealth Games Director

each with some event tickets going as low as $10. When asked how Tweed businesses can attract visitors during the games, Mr Witheriff said targeted marketing and promoting the Tweed Shire as a relaxing get away would be paramount. The next speaker during the Kingscliff Chamber meeting was Northern Rivers Rail Trail Vice President Cameron Arnold, who gave members an update on the proposed rail trail from Murwillumbah to Casino. Mr Arnold firstly spoke about the preservation of the rail line and how the rail trail would be established under a trust to operate the trail with only minor input required from Tweed Shire Council. He also spoke about some of the benefits to the community of introducing a rail trail for local kids. “The benefits of the rail trail will mean there is more options for children to use the corridor without the risk of road dangers,” he said. “Linking the hinterland to the coast the rail trail will also have carry-on benefits to local businesses by dispersing people out from a region.” Mr Arnold emphasised rail trails have proved successful in other areas.

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.

Robbie McEwen’s professional career spanned 14 years during which time he won more than 200 professional races including 12 Tour de France stage wins. NRRT spokesperson Marie Lawton said having him on board was a massive boost to the project.

“Not only is Robbie a household name that will bring considerable momentum to the campaign, he is a leader in the Australian cycling community,” Ms Lawton said. “One of the great strengths of a cycling and walking trail from Murwillumbah to Casino is its close proximity to a huge audience in the Gold Coast and Brisbane. “There is a huge number of cyclists and generally active people just north of the border, right on the Tweed’s doorstep, and attracting them to the rail trail will be a big part of its success.” Robbie said it would be a huge attraction to cyclists and walkers from South East Queensland, “whether it was for a day trip or a longer stay”. “I’ve spent many hours training on the roads of the Northern Rivers and I did quite a bit of racing with the Murwillumbah Cycle Club, so I know how spectacular that area is,” he said. “As someone who has trained and raced in many parts of the world, I can safely say a trail along the Murwillumbah to Casino rail corridor would be one of the best in the world.” Tweed Shire Council has previously dedicated funding to planning and designs for its section of the corridor and, with NRRT support, is nearing completion of that process in a bid to have the first section of the rail trail.

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%. 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.

THE KINGSCLIFF & District Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting took place on Tuesday, May 16, with several special guest speakers including Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Director John Witheriff. More than 40 local business owners and operators attended the meeting at the Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club, which was the Chamber’s first meeting back since the Tweed floods. Mr Witheriff, who lives at Kingscliff, said that although the Tweed Shire would not be hosting any sporting events during the Commonwealth Games, the Tweed was well placed to capture visitors wanting to escape one of the busiest events in Gold Coast history. “The opening of the Commonwealth Games will take place on Wednesday, April 4, at Metricon Stadium,” Mr Witheriff said. “Thousands of athletes from Commonwealth nations will compete in the largest sporting event in the southern hemisphere for this decade. “The event will be watched by more than 1.5 billion people worldwide via broadcasting from thousands of already registered journalists.” Mr Witheriff said the Games would draw an estimated $2 billion into the South-East Queensland economy. It will also be the first games where there will be an equality in the medals awarded between men and women. “I believe the Tweed can provide visitors a contrast to the Gold Coast, with a relaxed atmosphere and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the games,” he said. “Traffic movement is expected to be chaotic and all public transport is free to ticket holders.” Mr Witheriff said now was the time for residents to start booking their tickets especially for the opening ceremony. “By next Monday, May 22, you need to have committed to tickets to ensure you do not miss out,” he said. The games will see the introduction of women’s rugby and beach volleyball will take place at Coolangatta. Mr Witheriff said no free tickets were being provided to board members or politicians only sponsors for the games. Hot tickets include those for the opening and closing ceremonies which are near $100

Shocking break in leaves man with deep wound A FRIGHTENING and vicious attack on a Byangum man who found an intruder inside his home on Friday, May 12, has left him with an horrific injury to his left arm and prompted a police hunt. The break and enter occurred during broad daylight at about 1.45pm at Kyogle Road property. Homeowners Rocco Gioffre and his partner Julie Stephenson had recently moved from Oxenford on the Gold Coast to find peace in valley paradise. Rocco said he left the house for about 15 minutes before he returned home and knew something was wrong. “I got out of the ute and knew something was up, so I approached the rear of the house and saw a six-foot skinny man with long scruffy hair and a beard wearing gloves,” he said. Rocco said he yelled “what the f**k are you doing in here” at the man, before the intruder lunged at Rocco with a steel Stanley knife in a stabbing motion. The cut went to the bone and inflicted a major wound across Rocco’s left forearm. Rocco could have bleed out due to his prescription blood thinning drugs for a heart condition. Despite the wound, Rocco said he put a hard punch into the ribs of the intruder and it was at this stage that his German Shepard chased the man and bit his thigh through jeans. “I didn’t know what was happening after that, I went in search of help from a neighbour and wrapped a towel around my arm which was just pouring blood everywhere,” Rocco said. Rocco’s neighbour drove him to Murwillumbah Hospital where he was intern transferred by ambulance to The Tweed Hospital to undergo micro surgery. Julie said the doctors had advised the family that there was a risk he could lose his arm. Fortunately, surgeons were able to save Rocco’s arm without putting him under a general aesthetic. “Doctors were reluctant to put me under due to my heart condition, however they did use a blocking technique which meant I had no feeling in the arm during surgery,” he said. The couple moved to the Tweed Shire from the Gold Coast hoping to escape the city crowd and city crime. But they’ve since been through the Tweed floods and now an aggravated break in. The thief took cash, a camera and cigarettes. Detectives from Tweed took a formal statement on Tuesday, May 16.

Police are now investigating the aggravated break enter and steal, with officer’s appealing for public assistance to track the intruder down. “As a result of the dog attack he may have suffered injuries to his legs,” police said in a media statement. The intruder is described as Caucasian, 35 – 40 years old, slim build, 183cm tall, long light brown hair, and a scruffy beard. He was wearing a dark cap, jeans, and a dark T-Shirt. 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: nsw.crimestoppers. com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence. Police wanted to remind people they should not report crime information via Police Facebook and Twitter pages.

Labor leader back for another visit

NSW OPPOSITION Leader Luke Foley made another visit to Murwillumbah on Tuesday, May 16, reinforcing his 11-point bipartisan blueprint to help flood-affected communities. The eleven-point plan, which Mr Foley has called on the Premier Gladys Berejiklian to support, includes waiving of the State Government’s payroll tax for companies and more than 100 million in support funds and funding of tourism promotions to assist in the recovery. Premier Berejiklian is yet to support the proposal. Mr Foley was joined by Member for Richmond Justine Elliot and Shadow Minister for the North Coast Walt Secord (pictured below) in South Murwillumbah at the Right Food Group/OZGANICS warehouse. Mr Foley met with Right Food Group/OZGANICS owner Anni Brownjohn who was heavily impacted by the natural disaster almost two months ago. “Nothing beats hearing from people firsthand about their experiences on the ground to get an insight of how governments can do better in responding to emergencies,” Mr Foley said. “I am here not just to listen but to let people know that the North Coast is very much in our minds in Macquarie Street. Shadow Minister for the North Coast Walt Secord said the Labor Opposition wanted to provide bipartisan support at State and Federal levels to the recovery of the region “as the North Coast starts to rebuild and heal after the worst floods in more than 50 years”. “That offer to the Liberal-National Government still stands,” Mr Secord said. Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot said Mr Foley had been a strong advocate on behalf of the people of the North Coast after the worst flood event in decades. “I appreciate his visits and his preparedness to listen to the community and help them as they try to get their lives back on track. “Labor stands with the community every step of the way.”

Teaching someone to drive can be a happy experience.

SPINNERS AUTOMOTIVE announced in August last year the opening of its second workshop at 20 Lundberg Drive, South Murwillumbah, expanding their services to assist with crucial suspension upgrades while also continuing at their 303 Tweed Valley Way site. Spinners Automotive owner Peter Clarke (pictured below) said there was a growing trend amongst caravan and 4WD owners to exceed their maximum weight load or GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass), but Spinners can help take the worry away. The law governing caravan towing capacity is first and foremost designed for safety – yours and that of your occupants as well as third parties. However, many caravan or 4WD owners are unaware that they are exceeding their limits and risk a nasty shock at the weigh-in stations. “Is your caravan or 4WD legal? And do you know the weight limits?” Mr Clarke said. “We’re finding an increasing number of caravan owners are exceeding their load limits and there’s every risk they could have

their vehicle de-registered with fines or put themselves or their equipment at risk.” Spinners are offering full suspension overhauls using top of the line Pedders Suspension, to ensure you’re not only safe on the road but perfectly legal. Mr Clarke said the standard suspension on many caravans was falling short of what many families were now taking on holidays. “What we’re finding with a lot of vehicles are at their capacity load limits without additional items, which makes it easy for a family camping holiday to exceed the vehicle load limits,” he said. “But with a new suspension system we can in some cases achieve more than 600kg of additional weight while adhering to all road legislation.” Whether you have a new or old caravan or camper, or even a bus, you can find out more about how to increase your GVM to ensure you’re ready for the next road trip with Spinners. To find out more and to speak to the experts phone Spinners Automotive on 0412 956 500 or visit one of the two Spinners sites at 20 Lundberg Drive or 303 Tweed Valley Way.

Wintersun 2.0 program announced for crusin' in June WINTERSUN 2.0 is fast approaching and organiser John Valenti has announced the official itinerary for the event which includes cruise nights. Mr Valenti said Wintersun 2.0 at the Murwillumbah Showgrounds on June 2-5 was set to be a benchmark for future events. “Wintersun 2.0 is the culmination of ideas that many car, motorcycle and music enthusiasts have had for quite some time,” Mr Valenti said. Included will be the opportunity for entrants to drive/ride and enjoy their vehicles during the event, pin-ups and vintage clothing competitions, art and Kulture displays, trade stands and great food. The name harks back to the old Wintersun festival in Coolangatta which had a great friendly and laid back

atmosphere. Event organiser Steve Bowman said he has a strong desire to keep the event in the Tweed and heaped praise on the local community. “The Tweed is a beautiful area and everyone we’ve dealt with has been friendly and very supportive. I can see a long and prosperous future for the event and the area,” he said. “We hope the event will run in Murwillumbah indefinitely. Dates for the first event are June 2 to June 5 and future events will be around the same time of year.” Mr Bowman said he hopes the event will attract a range of different autos and people with favourable weather. “Great weather and a good crowd. More diversity and the expansion of the event into the streets Murwillumbah to enhance the economic benefit to the local traders,” he said.

“All cars are welcome up to the 1978 cut-off. “Later model classics are by invitation. We are expecting a large turnout of Hot Rods, Classics, Customs and Muscle cars and classic and modified motorcycles such as Cafe Racers, Bobbers and Classic Choppers. Music will by a mix of Rockabilly, Blues, Country and Rock and Roll.” For motoring enthusiasts, how can they get involved? “If they have a pre-1978 vehicle bring it along. Entry forms will be available in the next couple of weeks via the website and Facebook. This is a friendly family event so any car/ bike enthusiasts don’t currently own a classic vehicle are welcome to come along as spectators. Maybe they’ll get fired up to buy a classic and become a new entrant and part of the Wintersun 2.0 family for 2018.”

Stone & Wood Murwillumbah expansion approved Top Dog to host Biggest THE MURWILLUMBAH Stone & Wood Brewery has been approved to undergo an extensive expansion as the much-loved beer continues to cement its future in the Tweed Shire. Stone & Wood said in its development application to Council that it’s “experiencing significant product demand growth” and the expansion was needed to increase distribution. The company, which is located at Kite Crescent, is applying to Council to expand its current operations (over the next five years) and “compete in the Australian market”. The development comprises the installation of four new 400HL (40,000 litres) fermentation tanks to the west of the existing cellar. “The western shed wall will be removed and new walls constructed to fully enclose the new tanks,” the application to Council reads. “Installation of two new 400HL bright beer tanks, two new 800HL fermentation tanks on a new concrete slab to the north of the cellar; installation of Clean In Peace (CIP) tanks adjacent to the new 400HL and 800HL fermenters in the new roofed section. “The roof will continue at same height surrounding the proposed fermenter tanks, subsequently allowing a covered area surrounding the tanks and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment system for increase capacity.”

Morning Tea with pooches

TOP DOG Academy will host a special barbeque morning tea for locals and their dogs at Marine Parade (next to Cudgen SLSC) Kingscliff on Thursday, May 25, from 10.30am. All donations raised will be split between the Cancer Council and the Australian Animal Cancer Foundation. Top Dog Academy Rhonda Robinson said it was recognised that everyone will benefit (humans and animals) from a Cancer cure, “regardless of the organisation who is successful in finding one”. “We will be hosting a barbeque morning tea and for a small donation providing sausages for the dogs, steak and rissole sandwiches,” she said. “There will be a hamper for humans and a hamper for dogs to be raffled off and drinks may be purchased at Byron Bay Café where they donate a per cent of the sales in line with Top Dog Academy’s donations.”

Search for missing pilot as hopes remain

HOPES REMAIN to locate a missing 72-year-old pilot, believed to be Ian Sinnott, who took off alone on a routine flight in his green Sonerai light aircraft from Bob Whittle Murwillumbah Airfield on Tuesday, May 16, at 10am, and has not been seen since (at the time of print). Police told the media they had spotted a cleared area of bush at 2.30pm on Wednesday, where the plane may have gone down. Rescue crews were on horse back to reach the site in question with hopes to locate the man. The pilot had been missing for almost 30 hours at the time of print, prompting further fears. A resident near Limpinwood told local police that he’d seen a light aircraft that appeared to be in “trouble” or had lost a part of the plane, with an apparent sound heard in the distance. An extensive ground and air operation involving five helicopters and multiple ground crews had failed to locate any wreckage at the time of print (3pm Wednesday).

Family, friends and national media outlets had gathered at the Murwillumbah Airfield all day on Wednesday, May 17, in anticipation of word the man had been located. NSW Police media told The Weekly that rescue services had been circling the area in several helicopters around Limpinwood for hours on end, but that the search was also widened to take in Tyalgum and Chillingham. Difficult terrain and thick tree lines made search efforts slow. Australian Search & Rescue (AusSAR) in Canberra were co-ordinating the search. The Weekly spoke with the AusSAR media team in Canberra who said the missing plane was a green-coloured Sonerai aircraft. The Sonerai is a small, VW-powered homebuilt aircraft. The AusSAR media representative said that although pilots are encouraged to carry personal locater beacons, he was unsure whether it is compulsory to carry one in NSW.

TWO MEN, aged in their early twenties, were lucky to escape with only minor injuries after their utility ended up in the Tweed River at Jack Evans Boat Harbour on Friday, May 12. Tweed Police said it was about 10pm when they spotted the white late model Hilux, travelling along Coral Street at Tweed Heads. Police said in a media release that the utility came to their attention after they noticed the manner in which it was being driven. As the utility was returning to the roadway, police indicated for the vehicle to stop. However, as police approached the ute they allege the driver accelerated away from the officers. A search for the vehicle began with residents of a nearby building directing emergency services to a submerged vehicle in the river. A 21-year-old man, who was the driver, sustained minor cuts to his right knee and possible fractures. His passenger, a 22-year-old man, sustained a possible broken hand. Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

THE Rock ‘n’ Recovery Sunday Session is coming to the Condong Bowls Club on Sunday, May 21, and it promises to be a great day out for the whole family. Developed over a beer between a bunch of local bands wanting to do something to help in some way following the devastating impact of the Tweed flood. With the Tweed Mayor’s Flood Appeal already in place to provide residents and businesses with financial assistance, proceeds from the event will go toward this. “So many of our community are still in limbo and dealing with red tape at the moment and the Mayor’s Flood Appeal is trying to make it easy to access some financial support. So what better cause to donate to,” a spokesperson from the event said. “Rock ‘n’ Recovery is entry by donation so if you have been affected, here’s an affordable great day out for you and the family and if you are someone wanting to help you can pay a bit more for entry as know it’s going to a great cause.” The aim of the event is to raise as many funds as possible but it’s just as important to get our community together for a fun day. Six local bands plus special guests are donating their time and it promises to be an exciting line up of live rock and roll with Kings of the Sun, Living in the 70s, Round Mountain Girls, JB & the Safewords, Here Be Monsters and the Meerdogs. This a great chance to hear some live local music where you can bring the kids along too. There’s a jumping castle, SIBA

inflatable soccer pitch and face painting to keep them busy. Some excellent raffle prizes have been donated and the prize pool is still growing. To date there’s a fishing charter tour and fishing gear packs from Phippsy’s Smooth Water Charters, accommodation packages, a Fender mandolin, a seafood cooking class and dinner from a renowned chef plus more still to be announced. The day is being MC’d by Channel 9 fishing guru Andy “Phippsy” Phipps who will also perform with his duo “DnA”. And on top of the great entertainment, kids’ stuff and monster raffle prizes Condong Bowling Club will be providing a lunch and dinner menu at member’s prices And for those wanting a snack, Lions Club Murwillumbah have also come on board with a sausage sizzle.

The Nev Ollis Quintet, featuring Peter Uppman

This great combo has all the talent and creativity to present a wide range of music – from stomping trad jazz through to more sophisticated, often cool numbers. Nev Ollis has been on the Brisbane Jazz scene since 1987 when he retired from journalism to join the MetroGnomes, a jazz quartet run by trombonist Tom Nicolson. The quartet became very tight through working daily at its given task and a recording was made labelled “Gnomes Gnome More”. Nev Ollis leads the quintet on trombone, Peter Uppman features on trumpet and flugelhorn, the driving rhythm section has Bill White on drums, Glenn Flenady on banjo and guitar with Chris Schnack tuba and string bass. Combining international recognition with many years working in Australia these musicians are the only guarantee needed of a great night to start the 2017 jazz season.

The wonderful portraits of Margaret Olley

FILMS th Mia wi

CHINA AND BEYOND What does a film about a pilgrimage to Lhasa and a psychological thriller have in common? They both come from China..! The films are coming to town for special screenings dedicated to contemporary Asian cinema. PATHS OF THE SOUL is a quite unique film shot in Tibet by renowned Han Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yang, who explores the spiritual quest of humankind through the story of a group of men and women from a small village in Tibet who decide to try and appease their soul by going on a one year, 2,000km grueling pilgrimage on foot to Lhasa. The fictional story was filmed in a documentary style, with no script and without professional actors. It was shot at an altitude of 4,000m over a period of one year. Quoting Zhang Yang “by shooting this pilgrimage the film tries to look for the energy given by beliefs. It also allows us, non-believers, to think about our own spiritual lives. It reminds us to never lose ourselves”.

OLD STONE is Canadian-Chinese director Johnny Ma’s debut film. It is the story of a taxi driver’s descent into madness and crime in a small town in China after having his savings sucked dry in the aftermath of a traffic accident that puts a man into a coma. The context surrounding the moral breakdown of an upstanding citizen is a realistic, sobering and problematic depiction of a society in which people could actually buy insurance to cover themselves from being sued by people they help on the street and where bureaucracy and cynicism reign supreme. Lots of food for thought..!

MARGARET OLLEY is the most painted face in Australian art history and many of the best examples are included in a new exhibition, Portraits: Margaret Olley, featured at the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre until Sunday, September 10. As a fledgling artist aged 25, Olley sat for friend and fellow artist William Dobell, hurtling the shy young woman into a media frenzy when the portrait won the 1948 Archibald Prize. More than six decades later, Olley was again the subject of an Archibald Prize winning portrait; this time by Ben Quilty in 2011. Olley’s remarkable career is bookended by these iconic portraits. The new exhibition includes a number of self-portraits, alongside works by 13 Australian artists considered to be among the most significant figures in Australian art: William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Margaret Cilento, Ian Fairweather, Judy Cassab, Ray Crooke, Jeffrey Smart, Robert Barnes, Nicholas Harding, Danelle Bergstrom, Adam Knott, Greg Weight and Ben Quilty. “However, their importance to the exhibition also stems from their enduring friendships with Olley, so audiences don’t just see artist portraying subject, but also friend portraying friend,” Margarget Olley Art Centre Curator and Collections Manager, Ingrid Hedgcock, said. “Much has been said about the potential of the connection between artist and sitter to take a portrait beyond mere likeness. There are many things we ‘know’ about Olley garnered from her intimate biography by Meg Stewart, Margaret Olley: Far from a still life, her work and the extraordinary home studio re-creation. “In this exhibition, we see snatches of Olley - her character, her capacity for friendship, her dedication to art and artists and her obsession with objects - through her own eyes and through those of her artist friends. In this sense, Portraits: Margaret Olley can be seen as an expressive, painterly photo album of an extraordinary life and individual.” The exhibition is complemented by supporting events:

Gallery Up Late, Friday, June 9. After-hours access to the Gallery and Cafe from 5pm. Panel Discussion: Reflections of Olley: Art Gallery of South Australia Director Nick Mitzevich hosts a panel discussion about much-loved artist, mentor and muse Margaret Olley. Entry: $10 / $7 Friends of the Gallery and students. Bookings essential by June 4. (02) 6670 2790 Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-5pm or book and pay through PayPal at tweedregionalgallery.vendecommerce.com

Old Tweed Heads Courthouse has tale to tell A REFURBISHMENT of the old Tweed Heads Courthouse, part of the Tweed Regional Museum complex in Pioneer Park, will have added significance when the building is reopened later this year. Museum staff and volunteers are celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Courthouse building, which was built in 1927 as an addition to the original Tweed Heads Police Station in Wharf Street. The old Tweed Heads Courthouse was relocated to Pioneer Park in 1985, to become one of three heritage buildings forming part of the Tweed Regional Museum complex in Tweed Heads West. “The Police Station and Courthouse were the epicentres for the administration of justice and law and order in the district,” Tweed Regional Museum Director Judy Kean said. On the eve of International Museum Day on May 18, Ms Kean said the Courthouse’s upgrade would help tell the multi-faceted story of the important roles the building has played during its life. “The old Courthouse has been home to the Tweed Heads Historical Society and the Tweed Heads branch of the Museum since 1985. While the refurbishment progresses, we have assembled significant research about

its construction and use as a Courthouse, and as a Museum,” she said. “We would like to include some personal perspectives on the building’s history, so we’re asking Tweed residents to share their memories and stories, particularly people who visited or worked in the building during its time as the courthouse in Wharf Street. “We’re interested in all sorts of recollections. Memories and stories really bring a building alive.” Ms Kean said some of those stories could be challenging, given the role of the building, but they were equally valuable. “It’s important that museums record all aspects of history, a fact highlighted by this year’s International Museum Day theme, Museums and contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums. “The theme recognises that it’s important for museums to record multiple perspectives of history,” she said. “I am sure people in another 90 or 100 years will look back with curiosity about the role of law in 1927 and 2017. The lessons they will learn will include the stories of how individuals remember the life of buildings like the old Tweed Heads Courthouse.” To provide a story or for more information, contact the Museum on (02) 6670 2493, email trm@tweed.nsw.gov.au

Hopes Wonder Wash will bounce back after fire guts small business

Wonder Wash Laundry Net owner Joe Scholl inside his business after a devastating fire last week

WONDER WASH Laundry Net owner Joe Scholl has expressed utter devastation after a fire tore through his local business on Friday, May 12, that has left his family and employees shattered. Murwillumbah Firefighters responded to reports of a building fire at the business located at 58 Wollumbin Street at around 6am on Friday, May 12. Upon their arrival, firefighters found smoke billowing from the laundromat and acted quickly to save neighbouring businesses. “Firefighters gained entry and while wearing breathing apparatus were able to extinguish the fire and successfully stopped the fire spreading to five other businesses in the same building,” firefighers said. Murwillumbah Firefighters were supported by Tweed Heads Firefighters who assisted with ventilating the business. “The adjoining businesses were also smoke affected,” the crews said on social media. Speaking with The Weekly, Mr Scholl said the impact to the business would be felt by local residents and other businesses, who use the full-service laundromat on a daily basis.

“We’re one of the only Murwillumbah laundry operators that provide a full service to the community,” he said. “This has not only affected me and my three employees, it will impact locals and businesses in the area and the nearest one is in Tweed Heads.” Mr Scholl said he has already had an insurance assessment team visit the business and he’s in the process of making a claim. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Meanwhile, messages of support are flowing in for Mr Scholl and his family from longtime residents. “My sincere thoughts for Wonderwash and Joe Scholl and his family as a fire has destroyed the BEST laundry around. The community is there to support you for that rebuild,” Murwillumbah resident Jill RayBlack said on social media. Mr Scholl said he had every intention to bounce back from the fire and hopes to reopen as soon as possible. “The moment we can get the new machines back in and running, we will reopen,” he said.

34 NRL Tipping Competition Thursday May 18 - 2017 WELL THE HIGHLIGHT of the weekend was definitely Newcastle’s second win of the season. The Knights are definitely in the rebuild phase and are probably hampered by being owned by the NRL in terms of securing signatures of high profile players and third party agreements. I do hope they get James Graham for 2018 as he will make a huge difference. The Titans just keep hanging in there don’t they? I would not like to be a Melbourne Storm player after scoring 36 points and getting beaten. It normally takes 3 weeks for teams to score 38 points against Melbourne and there defence will certainly be looked at this week by the master coach Bellamy. Tom Trbojevic’s injury was unfortunate. It wasn’t a great look but at the end of the day it didn’t break

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals I spent last week involved with a lot of footy and unfortunately there was far too much fighting for my liking from U/14’s through to first grade in the NRRRL. I understand things can boil over sometimes but some of the scenes of King Hit/Coward punches, biting, kicking blokes on the ground, players squirting referee’s with water bottles, swearing at referee’s and team official’s removing their players from the field is not acceptable in our great game. It’s a tough enough game and is really not needed. I applaud the governing bodies for their enforcement of suspensions recently in order to make our game safer and better. There is no award for the bloke who throws the most punches at the end of the year. Some people and players need to pull their heads in. See you at the Footy. Quinny

any rules but unluckily for Tom and the Eagles he will spend an extended break on the sideline. Penrith’s huge comeback victory just might be the spark they needed to kickstart their campaign. The second half fightback was extremely entertaining and they showed what they are capable of but gee you would not want to be a Warriors supporter – they are hard work. Plenty of talk around Origin and I reckon the two coach’s have their teams picked. I think Thurston will play his 37th straight Origin and I think Jarryd Hayne will make his return to the Origin Arena. Slater will be Qld fullback and Boyd on the wing. It’s just an exciting time the Origin period. Was really pleasing the see the entire Country backline in the last ever city country was completely filled by Northern Rivers products.

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals

Acknowledging our local heroes A MOUNTAIN of food, clothing and household items were donated by Tweed residents during the past seven weeks, alongside countless volunteer hours to assist with the recovery following the worst flood in Tweed’s history. While the Tweed natural disaster may have knocked the shire for six, it’s been the big-hearted gestures and support from locals that’s served as a reminder of the strength and unity of the Tweed. Examples of such kind-hearted donations have came from residents of Murwillumbah’s Mountain View Retirement Village, who got behind the appeal with donations of groceries and household products to assist families. The appeal resulted in fifteen boxes filled with a wonderful array of products donated by the Mountain View residents. The boxes were delivered to the Murwillumbah Community Centre flood relief dispatch centre along with financial donations, which were also given to the Mayor’s Flood Relief Fund. As well as household items and money, volunteers have been the backbone of the recovery process including from local Rotary Clubs the Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club, Murwillumbah Rotary Club and Mt Warning AM Rotary Club to name just a few. The Rotary Club members have been extremely busy attending to flood recovery matters including providing support to the recovery centre at Hutchison’s and helping business recovery with a special online appeal. Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club Assistant Governor Denis Hallworth said the support came immediately after the water receded. “Rotarians were out helping with the clean-up efforts and members were part of the band of workers doing things to help in any way possible,” he said. “We assisted the food preparation outside IGA on Tweed Valley Way, cooking and driving deliveries to various locations. “Rotarians spent many days cleaning mud from several business premises in the industrial area as most other efforts were directed to private house premises, but we saw a need to help businesses recover and recommence operations as soon as possible.” The “Water Under the Fridge” appeal concert was a cooperative effort by the three local Rotary Clubs and the Murwillumbah Theatre Company and at least thirty Rotarians were involved in all aspects of the event.

“The estimated outcome raised is $15,000, which will be added to the Mayor’s appeal,” Mr Hallworth said. “A Rotary District 9640 Appeal for Murwillumbah, Lismore and other areas affected by Cyclone Debbie is being administered by members of the three clubs,” he said. “We arranged the donation of a house of furniture from a location in the Gold Coast hinterland, collected and delivered to Hutchison’s Recovery Centre. “Rotarians also arranged a truck load of donated furniture from Woolgoolga to be delivered to Hutchison’s Recovery Centre and unloaded the items which arrived on ANZAC Day.” Rotarians also supported the Hutchison’s volunteers by donating $1000 towards rental costs of the centre. “We have donated $200 to assist with costs of furniture collection from Gold Coast,” Mr Hallworth said. “We donated $100 of bottled water for distribution to homes in need, and $300 value of cleaning materials to the Recovery Centre for distribution to people in need. “We also provided free food to the Hutchison’s volunteers each Saturday the Recovery Centre has been open, from our regular sausage sizzle.” Private and club support continues to be felt across the shire and while much has gone unnoticed the gestures and kindness remain in the hearts and minds of those recipients.

Preschool funds boost

MEMBER FOR Tweed Geoff Provest has announced funding to improve and increase facilities at two preschools across the shire which will open up several new highdemand places for local kids. Mr Provest said $420,000 would go to Bilambil Community Preschool and OOSH Inc to give children quality early education in improved facilities. He said the funding was part of the NSW Government’s $8 million Capital Works program. “It’s great to hear that local families in Tweed will benefit from upgrades to our local services, making it a better place for children to spend their time,” Mr Provest said. “Research demonstrates that children benefit socially, emotionally and cognitively from access to quality early childhood education so this program will have a real benefit for families with young children in Tweed. “The investment will extend existing preschool buildings, build new facilities, buy new vehicles for existing mobile preschool services all with the aim to deliver more preschool places for local families.” The Capital Works Grants program provides funding for not-for-profit, community-based preschools to increase the number of places for children at 15 hours per week, especially in areas where there is a demonstrated shortage of places. Minister for Early Childhood Education Sarah Mitchell said we know the success of a child’s education on their last day of school is determined by their very first day of school. “The increased preschool places created through these grants are part of an additional 490 places spread across urban and regional areas of NSW,” Mrs Mitchell said. “The NSW government is fully committed to supporting providers to deliver quality care that working parents and carers can rely on.

Featured Business

Cabarita Mini Diggers. I have been involved in earthmoving and construction for over 20 years, operating a wide range of machines from loaders backhoes excavators etc in my early years. I got involved in mineral exploration in the 1980’s and moved into supervising and managing exploration drilling projects resulting in some major discoveries. I was responsible for all the earthmoving for roads camp construction and environmental controls both in Australia and overseas. My wife, Son and I relocated to Murwillumbah from Perth to chase my love of surfing around 2000. I decided to start a handyman business that I operated for 6 years. The call of exploration opportunities came along and I went back to fly in fly out. Just recently I decided to give up fly in fly out and try something I enjoy and can do local. So my wife and I decided to start Cabarita Mini Digger about 8 months ago. We do all limited access and general earthworks .We can do a wide range of jobs from Concrete preparation, Palm tree stump removal, drainage, Driveway repairs

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 FOR A LIMITED TIME we will check your anode in the Tweed & Gold Coast area FREE OF CHARGE. “REMEMBER YOU CAN’T LOSE, NO ANODE REPLACEMENT NO CHARGE” Comes with a 5 year warranty ~ Make your Hot Water System last for 30 years!

Bowls Notes with Judy Tuckey

L to R – TBDWBA 2017 Triples Champions, Joy Lake (Skip), Valerie Dudley, Faye Turner (Cabarita)

Between the Flags Cudgen Headland SLSC – Keith Kennedy CLUB OFFICIALS met with representatives of the Australian IRB competition organisers and Tweed Shire Council last Thursday for a venue inspection and to approve the Deed of Cooperation for the coming IRB Titles which we will host from July 14-17. The gear and craft compound will be on the Southern side of the Surf Club. Surf conditions will determine the competition area and if no change to beach formation, will be almost in front of the clubhouse. Construction of the new stepped area to the beach in the new park area, adjacent to the northern area of the clubhouse is proceeding well but may not be completed prior to the carnival to allow competition there. Weather conditions with light rain not the best for our ‘Coldies’ swimmers last Sunday, but however a good roll up of members and a water temperature of 23 degrees. Placings for nominated time were very close with Sean Alcorn first with 13 seconds out, Felicity Maitre 15, Chris

Team Lake opened the card with a six on the first end. Team Christian, not at all fazed, collected their own multiple on the third end and the battle began. With tight scoring during the remainder of the match, Lake’s team held their lead to take the game and go forward to the final. Semi-final two was an all in Ocean

Shores event as club mates Barbara Sprengel (Skip), Nola Gartner and Glenys Johnston lined up against Lyn McGowran, Margaret Enright and Johnnie Busch. Team Sprengel held the upper hand, with a reasonable margin, throughout the game, and keeping the opposition at bay, progressed to take their place in the final. The final in this principle culminated in a challenge between the Cabarita and Ocean Shores golden girls. These friendly foes, all of whom are bearers of impressive track records, certainly delivered a morning brimming with super entertainment for a packed gallery. Tight heads throughout this closely contested game, coupled with brilliant draw bowls from both skips, and ends only won, or lost, by the most meagre of millimetres, dominated a breath taking final. Whilst team Lake was able to

Dbah Girls Take National Surftag Win The Duranbah Boardriders Girls Team has taken out their 3rd Sailor Jerry National Tag Team Title in a row, from the Gold Coast’s North End Boardriders. The team which has 2 sets of Twins, Amyia and Brodie Doyle, and Audrey and Grace Stymen-Lane, plus their gun WQS veteran Freya Prum. The girls were stoked with their victory. Freya Prumm - “It was epic to have another win in such a close final.” The girl’s were dropping 8’s and 9’s everywhere and ripping hard in tricky conditions. Consistent surfing and sprinting up the sand for the tag is what gave us the nod with the bonus points being crucial when the final hooter sounded.” The D’Bah club treat us like rock stars and are always in it to have a good time so it was epic that we were able to take home the big cheque.” Good on you girls!!

Tapped in to the waves with Terry ‘Tappa’ Teece

“I have kept this under the radar, as I was unsure whether I would be able to travel or compete due to my health and ongoing treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Although, I am now excited to announce that I will be representing Australia as Team Captain in the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games held in Biarritz, France.” Brittani’s fundraising is being done in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation. The Foundation raised over $32 million for sport in 2015-16 and is on target to exceed $40 million this financial year. The Foundation is the only organisation in Australia that can offer a tax deduction for donations to registered sports projects. For example, if a local wishes to donate $1000 to Brittani’s fundraising project prior to June 30, they will get around 46 cents in the dollar (depending on their tax bracket) back when they lodge their 2016-17 tax return from July 1.

Up the mighty Vulcans

Under 15 Girls Vs Bruswick. Coach Andy The under 15 girls played Brunswick at their home ground on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14. The cold and wet conditions did little to deter the girls. Brunswick played tough footy, bolstered by a couple of new recruits that tackled fiercely, but in the end they were no match for the Vulcan’s who maintain their undefeated record mercy ruling Brunswick by half time. New player Ella McKnight had a break out game playing on the ball in the ruck. The highlight of the game being Lana leeJohnson feeding a flying handball out from under the pack to Ella whom gave the onetwo handball to Georgia Hutton before running through, breaking a tackle and then slotting a goal. It was these forward burst from Ella, Lana, Zali Zuschke and Ciarn Larrescy that broke open the game and gave the Vulcans another great win. Special mention goes to Jemima Hines and Alley Wightley who get better with each game and Alex Macdonald and who was rock solid in defense once again, her near 50-meter kick sent the Vulcans back into attack. U-14s Boys Vs Ballina. Coach Steve The amazing Vulcan under 14s turned it on with an outstanding demonstration of control and dominating play across the ground. Following a defeat at Byron last

week, our boys in red, blue and gold, pulled the trigger on the undermanned Bombers from the first bounce. The fast, furious and fantastic play from our legends was just irresistible, as we took the Ballina Bombers to the mercy rule by quarter time. After this we did the Vulcan thing, and spread the talent resources over both squads, to ensure the best player outcomes were achieved. The game from here really grew into a great spectacle to reward the Mother’s Day Mums and lucky spectators. All the players performed and lifted, so we had a great contest for everyone to enjoy. Well done all! Next round promises to be a beauty with Lismore at our ground. Better look out Swannies, what you see is what you get. Under 16 V Coolangatta Coach Dave Got to love wet weather footy. It brings everyone back to an even playing field especially for the Sunday under 16s Murwillumbah/Tweed combo against a fired up Coolangatta side. Cooly came out in the first half and gave us a bit of touch up. Number 25 for Cooly was everywhere so we had to make a move and put Jack Robinson on 25 to run with him in the 2nd half Robbo had the pace and endurance to go with him Robbo came out on top in this battle. Charlie Trevaskis had an outstanding game for us in this 16 point win. It’s amazing what a bit rain can do to a football game it was very close game at the end the boys had a win 16 points. I think our fitness prevailed thanks to the gym sessions. I would like to thank the Mums who turned up on Sunday putting on hold their Mother’s Day celebrations to help us in the canteen and upstairs and field operations on the day. Thank you so much we love our mums. More Vulcans news next week.

Narrow loss for Mustangs at home WHAT STARTED as a close game would end as a close game for the Murwillumbah Mustang who took on the Evans Head Bombers at the Stan Sercombe Oval on Sunday, May 14. Unfortunately for the Mustangs, it was Evans Head who narrowly took the win on the day, despite the best efforts of a strong defensive side in the Mustangs. The Bombers were not short of tough front rowers who managed to match the strength of the Mustangs in the first half and kept the pace throughout. The Mustangs were first to score and convert in the first ten minutes as the rain belted down and added to an already slippery field that kept the players and spectators guessing. Evans Head supporters were outnumbered by Mustangs supporters at their home ground, but this did little to curb their enthusiasm for a strong side with strong support. It was also close game for the Tweed Coast Raiders who lost 12 to 14 in a top of the

table clash against the Ballina Seagulls who have moved to the top of the table. The Mustangs will travel to Lismore next Sunday, March 20 to take on Marist Brothers who are sitting in sixth place. Both Tweed Coast teams have home games this weekend with the Raiders playing Casino and Cudgen hoping for a win against Lower Clarence who are yet to register a win.

Bananas go down in tough battle

By Joshua Harman SATURDAY WAS the second game of the season for the The Gentlemen of Murwillumbah ‘Bananas’, as they took on last year’s premiers, The Iluka Cossacks. Murwillumbah who were lacking the guidance of player coach Graham Dodge and captain Nick Reeve, were up for a tough game. The Cossacks came out with a very physical game straight from the start, with plenty of pressure around the ruck. Bananas, immediately caught on the back foot gave away an early try to the Cossacks. However the Bananas tightened up their defence and spent the majority of the first half defending in their own half. The possession was very little as the referee was not afraid to blow penalty after penalty against both sides, in all sending six players off with a yellow card, including three of the Bananas. Breakaway Branden Arndell, Winger Jackson Atkin and Fly Half Damien Boyle all spent 10 minutes in the Sin Bin throughout the game. Injury also played its part with the loss of veteran Prop Yu ‘Frankie’ Abekawa, who went down with a knee injury. Half time saw the Iluka Cossacks up 21-nil

over the Bananas. With their backs against the wall the local boys sorted their attack and set about playing smarter, slower rugby which worked in their favor. The Bananas first try came early in the second half when Michael Rossal crashed over out wide, the referee deemed it a penalty try as the Cossacks took Michael around the head defending their try line. Cossacks however soon capitalised on a Bananas error, running the field to score their final try. Desperate for redemption the Bananas muscled their way up the field in the final minutes, with a strong performance in the forwards allowing Morgan Buchanan free space to push off a defender and score under the post. The Bananas unfortunately unable to take the win, went down 28-14 to the Iluka Cossacks. The Gentlemen of Murwillumbah ‘Bananas’ will play away this Saturday against competition favourites Evans Head. With the return of both Captain and Coach, they will look to put up a fight against the Evans Head Killer Whales. Bananas next home game will be May 27 against the Kyogle Cockatoos. at ‘Banana Park’ Bill Carol Oval, 1 Dorothy St Murwillumbah.
