The Bad News:

Power Prices Up by 20%!

On the 1st July power prices increased by 20% in NSW due to systemic manipulation

of the wholesale electricity price by power generation companies. Households in NSW use only 1/3 of the electricity produced, yet pay 80% of the total power costs passed on by networks and power companies. This is unfair!

Generating solar power on your roof is the only guaranteed way to take back control of your electricity bill.

This Special Feature will help you understand how you can reduce your power bill with new strategies that make the most of changes to electricity markets today.

The Good News:

Solar Feed in Tariffs Higher!

The solar feed-in tariff (FIT) for NSW has been set by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal to a range of 11.9 to 15c per kWh, up from 5.5 to 7.2c last year. This is a price guideline only for electricity retailers and is not mandatory. Market competition has created an incentive for electricity companies to increase their tariffs, and solar customers are advised to shop around and switch providers if necessary. Electricity bills are needlessly complex, but fortunately the Government’s Energy Made Easy website allows consumers to input their bill information and see the accurate comparisons between energy offers. 888 Solar Tek has surveyed the market for our solar customers and prepared this table to help you get the best deal:

Vincent Selleck is the Managing Director of 888 Solar Tek, dedicated to helping households and businesses defend against the high cost of electricity, with strategies and solutions using the latest solar technology available today.

Take Back Your Power!

Battery Power is the new revolution in solar. 888 Solar tek have installed more solar battery systems than any other solar company in the Northern Rivers. Our Solar Power Battery Storage systems are one of the best ways to beat the unfair electricity network and create energy independence today. Our advanced Z21 battery inverter system is just as happy on the grid or off the grid, so it is the perfect building block for migration off the grid. It has remote monitoring, recording full history for solar power, grid use and export, battery charging and your power use in an easy to access platform for your phone, tablet or PC. You can get control of your new energy system to get the most out of every kWh with free 12 month support. With custom designs based on your energy use, 888 Solar Tek will 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 Solar Tek is local, family owned solar company based in the Northern Rivers, providing revolutionary new technology that slashes the cost of solar power and battery storage.

Solar Power Play Number 2

How to Zero Your Power Bill - and Stay Connected to the Grid

With FIT’s at 16c you can now sell power back to the grid as part of a strategy to minimise and eliminate power charges completely. Power from 2.5 kW of solar will offset your electricity supply charge when all the generated power is exported at 16c per kWh. With solar FIT’s now more than half the cost of grid power, the rest of your power charges can be neutralised with more solar as well. Power used from solar panels directly during the day will offset the full price of buying power, so maximising use during the day is essential. Power used after daylight hours can be offset by generating and exporting twice as much to the grid as you use at night. A two person household could neutralise their electricity bill completely with 5-8 kW of solar panels, without using batteries or going off grid. The Network operator, Essential Energy, sets limits for how much solar you can export to the grid. A general cap of 5 kW of solar generation is often applied. Using batteries to store the extra solar power generated above your export quota is then an excellent investment to eliminate most of your power charges. A combination of solar for export, self use maximised during daylight hours and battery storage is a great strategy to bring your bill closer to zero for medium to large households. You can also go off grid and eliminate your bill as well. 888 Solar Tek offer a FREE consultation to help you with your solar energy plan, examining your bill, advising on energy providers and designing a solar solution to help you take control of rampant energy charges.

Extended Offer on Quality Grid-Connect Solar in August Get More Panels on Your Roof - FREE! Up until the end of August 2017, 888 Solar Tek will add two extra panels to each Sungrow solar system ordered for FREE!

Enova and Origin are fighting it out to set the highest FIT. Origin owns several coal and gas generation plants and has contributed heavily to force up wholesale electricity prices in the last year. They have the largest market share in the Northern Rivers and offer a 15c per kWh FIT. Community owned Enova went one better with 16c. Newcomers, Energy Locals, have the best all-round plan with lower supply charge and energy prices and a very good FIT. They also supply 100% carbon offset power at the same price.

He also confirmed that Council, currently sends its landfill waste to South East Queensland and is in accordance with NSW legislation. “The Ipswich facility is within 150km of the Tweed and therefore compliant the Proximity Principle put in place under NSW Protection of the Environment Operations Legislation,” Mr Dawson said. “The real concern is that waste generated in the Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong metropolitan areas and then transported to Queensland landfills, largely to avoid paying the landfill levy.” Mr Dawson said the contract to send the Tweed’s landfill waste over

the border was also in line with Local Government Act requirements to openly tender for providers, to ensure the process is fair, transparent and achieves the best result for Tweed ratepayers. “We only received submissions from Queensland-based waste disposal sites to receive our waste and could therefore only accept one of those submissions,” he said. “Given our close proximity to the border, the disposal of waste in Queensland is our most cost-effective option. “Council is working on developing new waste disposal capacity at the Stotts Creek Recovery Centre, which will eventually receive our waste,” he said. “It also means our waste is going to a state-of-the-art, best practice landfill with gas capture and power generation, which the Tweed landfill does not have.”

Council misses out on Southside industrial site - lot 519

TWEED SHIRE Council has missed out on purchasing a 16.11 hectare flood-free industrial site at Lot 516 Industry Central, Murwillumbah, which sold under auction on Sunday, July 30. The site would have provided an ideal option for Council to relocate “key employment generating businesses”. In a statement to The Weekly, a

Tweed waste disposal squeaky clean says Council

TWEED SHIRE Council has sought to assure residents that the shire’s waste is being managed within the NSW Legislation, following a damning national report by Four Corners which aired on ABC on Monday, August 7. The program exposed a range of illegal dumping and allegations of waste mismanagement against Gosford City Council as well as promoting residents to “contact their local councils”. Council’s Coordinator of Waste Management Rod Dawson issued a media statement on Tuesday, August 8, that said: “Tweed residents can be confident the shire’s recyclable and landfill waste is being managed responsibly”. “And in a way, that maximises the reuse of materials wherever possible,” he said. Mr Dawson said all recyclable waste collected by Council’s contractors goes to a NSW Material Recovery

later, although he agreed with the conditions and felt confident his team could get the job done. “We’ve already had some of the tradespeople confirm and the first big job is to pour the concrete, which we’re hoping to do in the coming weeks,” he said. Meanwhile, several residents have come forward with images inside the bar, although none dating back to the 1930s or 1940s. To find out more about the Imperial Hotel phone (02) 6672 7000.

But there’s already been plenty of hurdles in the redevelopment including narrowly avoiding a deferral motion from Mayor Katie Milne. Mayor Milne raised a motion to defer the renovations which was seconded by councillor Reece Byrnes. The motion stated that the proposed development be deferred to the August 17 Council meeting “to allow a site inspection with relevant assessing staff, Heritage Consultant and the proponent”. However, an amendment to the motion was raised by Councillor Pryce Allsop and was seconded by Cr Warren Polglase. The amendment recommended the development application be approved subject to a range of conditions. Among the conditions are to restrict construction times at the site from 7am to 6pm Monday to Saturday only, as well as no work to be carried out on Sundays or Public Holidays. Mr Nugent said he was disappointed that works could not be carried out

purchase was to acquire flood free industrial land to facilitate the relocation of key employment generating businesses out of the hazard zone at South Murwillumbah. “Despite this setback Council is hoping to review options for this site with the new owner and the state government at a meeting to be scheduled in the next month or two.”

THE IMPERIAL HOTEL owner Shane Nugent has breathed a sigh of relief this week after he received approval from Tweed Shire Council to complete internal renovation works at the iconic Murwillumbah Street site. Provided inspection and tradespeople are available, Mr Nugent said the Imperial Hotel could be open by the end of October this year and in perfect time for Christmas celebrations. “We’re getting a visit from a private certifier today (Tuesday, August 8) and provided everything goes ok, we should be able to have the majority of the work completed by October,” he said. Mr Nugent has invested a lot of time and money restoring the Imperial Hotel, which already has two successful businesses leasing street-frontage sites and more office space to come. Mr Nugent is hoping to capture some of the building’s unique 1930s charm and return the bar to one that the entire Tweed Shire can be proud of.

Concerns around Coles Express

It is very disappointing to see that Coles was unable to accept Tweed Shire Council’s decision to disallow their DA for a service station. In taking Council to the Land and Environment Court they have acted in a bullying fashion. Another service station would put greater pressure on the smaller service stations in town and perhaps put some of them out of business. Murwillumbah is already well supplied with fuel outlets. The particular site is flood prone, on a very busy roundabout and would not be a visually pleasant gateway into the CBD. Another service station does not make sense. Gerry Matthews, Kielvale

Too many service stations

I’m incensed that Coles is still pushing for a petrol station on the Round House site, after all the opposition from many of the town’s residents. There’s a perfectly good petrol station a stone’s throw away, and not very far north on the main road are two more. To top that just by the new roundabout by Melaleuca station - guess what - another brand new service station. I feel like lying down on the road in front of a bulldozer in protest! And what about the floods to come. Di Watson, Murwillumbah

Service station would be eyesore

I’m a relative newcomer to the area (three-and-a-half years in Stokers) and until IGA on Tweed Valley Way opened I was limited to shopping at Coles Sunnyside Mall - a misnomer if ever there was one! Sunnyside Mall is a horrible eyesore and depressing to enter its gloomy, lightless bowels. Considering we live in the most beautiful part of NSW it’s a mystery how such an ugly development was allowed in the first place (although I can guess bullying and politics were involved). Now Coles appears to be on track to build another petrol station - as if we need one -right at the entrance

to town. We’ll end up looking like Parramatta Road. I came here to escape such ugliness. Why not create something aesthetically pleasing and economically productive? It just takes a bit of imagination and the community to stand up against the Coles legal bullies. Helen Carter, Stokers Siding

Protecting natural wonders

Your articles in the August3 edition regarding Hastings Point being used by movie companies is concerning. Hastings Point headland represents what is good about the Tweed Coast. My wife and I have visited here on numerous occasions. The vista is incredible. The view to the beaches north and south reveal what a beautiful piece of coastline we live on. On one visit I watched a seabird dive into the surf and catch a fish in its talons. Seeing something like this live was better than watching any television nature documentary. I have also observed the enjoyment other visitors and families have when visiting this piece of paradise. We should listen to the advice of our experts who have personally researched Hastings Point Headland and the impact commercial enterprises have on the environment. But not only this it should also be protected for those who visit. If I was a medical practitioner I would write a prescription for my patients not for pills but to recommend they visit Hastings Point Headland for their health. Let us protect one of our natural beauties and hands off to those who are here today and gone tomorrow. Rod Harm

Green bin not being utilised

Despite the Council’s promotional w r ap - a ro u n d ( Twe e d D a i ly News July 26 2017) the new garbage arrangements are simply unsatisfactory. In my street Red bins overflow, while the Green bins are close to empty. Some households don’t even put the Green one out. My household’s food scraps for a week don’t even cover the bottom of the Green bin and I have checked many other Green bins over the last four weeks and the results are the same. The overflowing Red bins are a health disaster waiting to happen as they await the fortnightly collection with buzzing flies and maggots having a field day. Council must address this community risk, but not by charging ratepayers another $80 for a weekly collection. We all know rates are too high. As a friend of mine who recently bought in Kingscliff commented, he pays almost $1,000 dollars more in rates for his Kingscliff property than he does for his main property and he lives in an affluent suburb in Brisbane.

Council claims to have obtained good numbers on Green bin waste however the real reason for this is that people are putting in plant and grass cuttings and tree waste, which they previously took to the tip. In recycling terms, the new expensive garbage arrangements do very little in terms of improving landfill from previous arrangements. The real problem is that the premise that 40 per cent of Red bin rubbish is made up of food waste was and is plainly wrong. Mr Roy Hadley’s letter [“Landfill rip-off” (TDN July 26) states that Red bin charges increased 70 per cent for 26 fortnightly pick ups this financial year compared to 52 weekly pick ups last financial year. How can this be justified? I support recycling but the new garbage arrangements are not working, and the Shire needs to do something about the situation beyond false advertising and “spin doctoring”. Kaye Sharples, Tweed Heads

Concerns over Councillor views

Last week we wrote to Tweed Shire Councillor Pryce Allsop requesting his assistance in cleaning up an area of Murwillumbah where homeless people sometimes sleep in an attempt to make the area more comfortable for the homeless. We were not surprised that Allsop fobbed off this request suggesting that it was up to members of the community and not the Council to carry out this work and he might arrange some cleaning equipment for us. This coming from a Councillor who was elected on a platform “to resurrect and beautify Murwillumbah CBD”. Yet more broken promises from Allsop who in ten months has only voted for scrapping any hope of a Murwillumbah rail service, the demise of coastal koalas, approval of an industrial complex in an endangered koala corridor (Black Rocks), support for commercial water mining, support for high rise development at Kingscliff and the list goes on from the ‘development at any cost’ Council faction member. What ever happened to his election promise to support ‘eco-tourism’ and the environment? Andrew Bennett, Murwillumbah

Koala survival in the balance

I am concerned that the developer of the Kings Forest Estate has applied to vary consent conditions which would have given at least some protection to wildlife corridors. The Kings Forest development site is located 20km south of the Gold Coast. It sits just west of Casuarina between the Tweed Coast Road and the Pacific highway.

Very soon we’ll have a response to the Federal funding request for a rail trail in Murwillumbah. This means ripping up the railway tracks and removing the protection of the corridor through the rail trail legislation. The Minister will be able to do whatever they want once the corridor becomes crown land just like the recent decision about the Tumbarumba railway line. This government and the previous Labor government don’t want railways in NSW. Liberal, Labor and National parties get donations from road companies so they do what their donors want. Build roads and ignore railways as much as possible. So we get more cars and trucks on the road and more potholes, congestion and carbon emissions. Very soon it will all be over and there’ll be no more chance of getting trains back on the tracks. It’s time we all spoke up about this. Ring or write to your local papers and MPs, the Premier and Prime Minister because the community of the Northern Rivers does not let the government do us over like this. Don’t forget that these political parties were content to let us have CSG wells all over our countryside. We didn’t let them.

Koalas on the edge

against the rich developer or should we fight to the end to defend what we value. Team Koala is doing just that, all they are asking is that you support their campaign to show the NSW Government that what happens in the Tweed is very important to the whole community here and the community wants a say about what will exist here once Leda has taken their profits back to Queensland. Years of delays for the development of Kings Forest have not reduced our spirit to fight the constant injustice directed at our officially endangered Koalas. Leda you knew the land was environmentally important and you promised us all with large page advertising that you would take full responsibility for the Koalas adequate management, now you choose to insult us with a contemptable modification which means no fences, no primary food trees and eventually no Koalas. Shame on you Leda! A promise is a promise. Leda the community does not trust you. Maria Smart, Tweed

in 2010. The site is expected to accommodate 4,500 dwellings covering approximately 430 hectares of land housing a new population of over 11,000 residents. An increased 20,000 vehicle movements per day is expected when completed. The primary entry /exit point will be onto the Tweed Coast Road about a kilometre north of the new traffic lights near Coles at Casuarina. There is no access proposed to the Pacific Highway. I would imagine eventually the Tweed Coast Road will have to be widened and traffic lights installed along its length. Availability for parking at local beaches is limited. This along with other similar developments in the pipeline spells out a Gold Coast lifestyle for Tweed residents. The site is within a wildlife corridor extending from Kingscliff to the Brunswick River. It is home to part of our local koala population which is now listed as endangered. A recent study (Time-delayed influence of urban landscape change on the susceptibility of koalas to chlamydiosis *) comprising data collected over 14 years of 9000 koala hospital records has proven that urbanisation is associated with an increase in koala disease. Disease in local koalas is driving them to extinction. The NSW Labor party approved the development. The NSW Liberal National Party recently passed laws that significantly water down protection for threatened species. Coastal community associations have strong influence on government and are often controlled by and stacked with pro development types who place self interest above community welfare in their quest for the fast buck. The only way to save Tweed from the gridlock of Gold Coast style over-development is to replace those in government who push development at the expense of lifestyle and our environment. Join your local community association to ensure it is there for the community. We must value and protect the threatened species that inhabit our beautiful Tweed landscapes. Your quality of life depends on their survival and their survival depends on you. Scott Sledge, Northern Rivers Guardians, Inc

Local News 5

Community rejects Kings Forest Koala Plan changes HUNDREDS OF objections to the proposed changes to the Kings Forest Koala Plan have already been lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment with the final submission date now extended to Friday, August 18. The changes to the Koala Plan of Management (KPoM) include a reduction in the size of koala offsets from 93ha to 56.7ha, or 36.3ha difference and includes 27 hectares within the Cudgen Nature Reserve. The proposed changes also include increased clearing of koala habitat from 6.68ha to 15ha, changes to the timing of offsett plantings, a reduction in the east-west corridor and removal of koala fencing and underpasses. Tweed Shire councillors voted unaminously to endorse a submission to the Department of Planning and Environment at last week’s Planning Meeting, which outlined several concerns with the proposed changes to th KPoM. “Council strongly objects to the proposed loss of any further koala habitat or provisions for the protection of koalas in light of the serious jeopardy of the Tweed Coast koalas and considering the recent listing for local endangered population of the Tweed Coast koalas,” Council’s report reads. The main issues raised include; reduced koala habitat offsets, overlapping of offsets, a large proportion of secondary rather than primary habitat within offsets, timing of offsets, removal of fencing and underpasses, use of koala grids and bushfire impacts. Council officers also noted in their submission that a proposed reduction in the size of the east-west wildlife corridor did not provide any habitat linkage. “Despite this clear advice from the Department, the proposed KPOM includes only a 50m wide by 400m long section of the southern E-W corridor which does not actually provide a contiguous habitat link,” Council’s

submission reads. Another concern was the timing and sequencing of offsets which Council said could “permit clearing to occur in advance of the delivery of the required offsets,”and the doubling in the amount of koala habitat to be cleared. “It is highly unlikely that a contemporary development application to clear 15ha of koala habitat would be supported by Council,” Council’s report reads. “It should also be recalled that at the time of the Project Approval the proponent claimed that only 6.68ha of koala habitat would be cleared. “Based on the content of the proposed KPOM it appears the proponent is seeking to reduce the overall koala habitat offset requirement, to the creation of 56.7ha of koala habitat onsite. “This compares to an estimated total of 93ha of koala habitat to be re-established under the existing State approval. Meanwhile Team Koala president Jenny Hayes has so far collected more than 300 petition signatures, whilst more than 150 individual public submissions have been uploaded to the Department of Planning website along with further support coming from Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot and Tweed Shire Council. Mrs Elliot MP said she supported Team Koala’s efforts and was against the proposed changes to the Kings Forest plan. “Labor has a long-standing commitment to protect our precious koalas at Kings Forest,” Mrs Elliot said. “I spoke about this important matter in Federal Parliament in 2013, and I share Team Koala’s concerns about the developer’s recent request to reduce koala habitat offsets, food trees and traffic calming devices. “I congratulate Jenny Hayes and Team Koala for their ongoing advocacy and I share

Member for Richmond Justine Elliot MP, Team Koala President Jenny Hayes and Tweed Shire Councillor Reece Byrnes

their concerns about the developer’s plan to modify conditions of consent set by the State Government over koala management at the site.” Justine and Jenny are not alone in their objections, with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) also expressing concern with the proposed changes. “The proposed modification is inconsistent with the State conditions of approval and provide a poor outcome for biodiversity,” a submission from the OEH reads. “The OEH believes that the existing State condition can be achieved in conjunction with the Commonwealth approval without the need for modification.” The OEH said the requirement for 27 hectares of offsite plantings, originally planned for the Cudgen Nature Reserve, should not be removed from the development approval. “The 27ha offsite offset should be retained and the applicant should liaise with the OEH to determine a suitable site or the applicant should propose an alternative offset

arrangement to the satisfaction of the OEH,” the submission from the OEH reads. The OEH said the offsite plantings would bolster the existing conservation network for koalas more regionally than onsite plantings. According to the OEH onsite plantings would “provide a poor environmental outcome” and “if the 27 hectares was to be onsite it needs to be in addition to the already planned protection areas and buffers”. “The OEH would support the 27ha onsite if it was in an area currently allocated for development,” their submission reads. A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the closing date had been extended until August 18 and encouraged submissions. “The community is encouraged to make submissions before the end of the public exhibition period on 18 August, extended from 28 July,” the spokesperson said.

TWEED SHIRE Council has revealed plans to address aquatic weed growth at the Banora Point waterways, following concerns from local residents that the drains are at risk of clogging up with noxious weeds. However, in a statement to The Weekly a spokesperson for Tweed Shire Council said the waterways were in a “fair” condition overall and weed growth was isolated. Banora Point local John Sydneham had expressed his concern to The Weekly last week and stressed that if Council doesn’t act to clean the drains of overgrowth, it could starve the system of oxygen and lead to another fish die off. “There’s a real worry that not enough is being done to address the drains from a long-term perspective,” he said. “I know the systems look adequate today, but this has been an ongoing issue. “Where is the Banora Point rates being spent? Why can’t we have a dedicated twoperson team that work towards making these man-made waterways both clear and in good condition for wildlife, it may be “fair” but surely it could be outstanding as well.” Councillor and Deputy Mayor Chris Cherry also met with Mr Sydneham last week, and she told The Weekly that Council was “currently reviewing the operational plan for the management of the drainage system and hopes to find a solution”. “It was reported to me on the weekend that there is consensus in the community that before we changed the management regime, it was being effectively managed to exclude weeds etc, so we need to look at that and see what is being done differently,” she said. “I can see the problem, with salvinia, Singapore daisy and tradescantia, covering much of the surface of the water. “Council is already spending $105,000 per year on maintenance of the system. “Much of that goes into mowing but we

need to look at doing things differently, and finding a better way to deal with this problem, so that this drainage system cannot only provide for flooding needs but also provide valuable green space we all enjoy, which is important for our quality of life.” Several questions to Council staff revealed that weed harvesting is planned for early spring to target salvinia and other aquatic growth. “Plus, Council intends to do more silt removal from isolated sections later in the year,” a spokesperson for Council said. “Generally, the overall condition is fair. Isolated sections require weed removal but they do not impact on stormwater function of the drains.” The Council spokesperson said there was “no way” of predicting a mass fish die off in the waterway systems. “No way of predicting fish kills. Drain condition is same as it has been over last 15 years and in that time have had only two major fish kill events,” the Council statement reads.

Flood review calls for several SES changes of both suitable staff and budget. NSW SES will explore (with NSW Treasury) the possibility of an increase (approximately $250,000) in its existing Labour Expense Cap to incorporate this additional resource. Meanwhile, the only area the NSW SES did not support related to additional funding for another community engagement staff member for the Richmond Tweed Region. “NSW SES is currently undertaking an Organisational Transformation process which will see it review the functions and location of all staff,” the report reads. “Through that process, the service will make determinations as to where resources are best located to achieve the optimal community outcomes. “The implementation of strategies such as ‘Volunteering Reimagined’ will assist regions like Richmond Tweed Region with their Community Engagement capability and capacity in the future.” One of the items relating to local media was a recommendation that NSW SES ensure “media blackouts do not occur during major events, rather the media is harnessed to ensure the timely delivery of messaging”. The recommendation related to the cancellation of media communications, or a media blackout, during the flood that was initiated by NSW SES. However, NSW SES agreed with the recommendation and said it views the media as a “key partner in providing information to communities during such events”. “It does not support a practice of media blackout during operational events,” the report reads. “NSW SES understands that in this instance this was a direction provided by the Regional Incident Controller during a period of heightened activity between 1400 and 1700 on 30 March 2017.

management systems and policy, and closer liaison with the Bureau of Meteorology to have a suitable representative based at the NSW SES State Operations Centre. “One of our key priorities is continuing to educate communities in these flood-prone areas to ensure they understand their flood risk, they know how to prepare themselves for a flood, and they know how to act when a Flood Evacuation Warning or Order is issued,” Commissioner Smethurst said. “The independent review states that preparation and planning for a major flood is everyone’s responsibility and the NSW SES will continue to engage communities, local councils and other groups to ensure people are aware of what they can do to mitigate their flood risk in the future.”

Police urge stranger danger update after child approached at Tweed Heads West

TWEED POLICE have raised the alarm after they received information of a child being approached at Tweed Heads West on Tuesday, August 8. Police said it was about 5:15pm when a witness to the incident noticed a young boy, possibly around 12 or 13 years-old and about 150 to 155cm tall, slightly chubby build with short blonde hair. The boy was seen talking to a male driving a white-coloured 4WD vehicle similar to a Nissan Patrol or Toyota Land Cruiser (image below). As the witness approached the young boy and the adult male at the drivers seat of the 4WD, the witness heard a conversation between the two. When the witness approached the vehicle, the adult male drove off without being spoken to by the witness. The witness asked the young boy if he was “OK” and if he knew the man driving the 4WD. The young boy appeared shaken and indicated that he had never seen the man or 4WD before. Police are requesting the young boy and

his parents to come forward and speak to local officers in an attempt to gain further information about the incident. Police would also like to take this opportunity to remind parents to discuss the issue of “Stranger Danger”, with their children. “Parents are encouraged to remind their child not to speak to strangers and that if they are approached to tell their parents immediately,” Police said in a media statement. If anyone has further information about this incident they can contact Tweed Heads Police on 07 5506 9499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 anonymously.

AN INDEPENDENT review of the NSW State Emergency Service (SES) operational response to the Tweed flood, more than four months ago, has recommended the Murwillumbah SES sheds be shifted to a more accessible location as well as a range of changes aimed at improving responsiveness. The 13-page document lists 36 recommendations across a range of areas including that the NSW SES considers the placement of a Bureau of Meteorology representative within the State Operations Centre for significant events. The NSW SES volunteers responded to 3,400 calls for help and almost 500 flood rescues across the flood event from March 31. The document also recommended that the NSW SES, in conjunction with Tweed Shire Council, locates a suitable location for the SES Murwillumbah Unit. One area of note was that the NSW SES review their current systems and procedures for Out of Area Deployments to streamline current practices. This would include a ‘skills register’ for staff and availability. The NSW SES also agreed with the recommendation to enter discussions with the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) to have a suitable representative (meteorologist) located at an NSW SES State Operations Centre (SOC). “There are two possible solutions in engaging a BoM representative within the NSW SES State Headquarters. They are: Senior Forecaster located in the NSW SES SOC during major emergency responses (immediate solution),” the report reads. “Or, a Senior Forecaster located in the NSW SES SOC for all or part of the year (longer term solution). “This will be depended on the availability

Sunnyfield Tweed Heads helps to build skills for life and independence NEW SERVICES are now available for people with disability in Tweed Heads. The recent opening of Sunnyfield’s new Tweed Heads Community Services Hub will deliver a range of individualised services and supports for participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Embracing a person-centred approach, people with disability will have the opportunity to explore creative talents, build on skills for life and actively participate in the community. In addition to NDIS services, the new Community Services Hub will also provide support co-ordination, fee for service supports and after school care programs for local families. Regional Manager, Patty Foulds, says “Sunnyfield’s experience with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) places us in a unique position to work in

partnership with people with disability and their families through their NDIS transition, and deliver flexible supports including Skills for Life activities such as money skills, literacy, numeracy or travel training. These services will support people with disability to transform their lives and build independence.” Addressing what differentiates Sunnyfield as a NDIS provider in a competitive marketplace, Ms Foulds said “The experience Sunnyfield brings to Tweed Heads will be reflected through the diversity of our offerings and the engagement of key local staff; many of whom have a wealth of experience in the disability services sector. Sunnyfield has a trusted 65 year history of delivering quality supports to people with disability.” To find out more about Sunnyfield contact 07 5524 8537 or email enquiries@sunnyfield. org.au

Chinderah campers questions loom CHINDERAH RESIDENTS have again raised concerns with what they say is “increased illegal camping” taking place along Chinderah Bay Drive, and they’re demanding action from authorities and Tweed Shire Council to resolve the issue. Chinderah resident Philip Jeffels is the chairperson for residents of the Gateway Lifestyle Tweed Shores Lifestyle Village located on Chinderah Bay Drive. Mr Jeffels highlighted that in March 2017, The Weekly had run an article titled “Mayor to seek way forward for Chinderah homeless”. “This was before the floods and there were a number of illegal campers parked along the foreshore of the Tweed River on Chinderah Bay Drive,” he said. “I call them illegal campers because they are not homeless, they live in their buses, cars and tents on the foreshore, some have generators or solar panels for power and washing machines etc. “Since the floods these illegal campers have increased in number and don’t look like moving. “On behalf of the residents I have been writing to various authorities in an effort to have them removed.” Mr Jeffels said he wrote to Mayor Katie Milne, the State Member for Tweed Geoff Provest, Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot and the State Minister for Housing Pru Goward. “I might point out that Mayor Milne has failed to answer my correspondence although I have had a letter from the General Manager of the Tweed Shire Council and I have also not received an answer from Minister Goward,” he said. “The response from the General Manager of the Council and Mr Provest MP has been that the Council is awaiting expert legal advice to be able to move illegal campers on. “I have also been advised verbally by Mr Provest’s office that these illegal campers

have been offered housing, but have refused all offers, so they can hardly be called homeless.” Mr Jeffels said Mayor Milne had expressed her concern at the environmental impact and damage being caused by filming at Hastings Point headland. “What we cannot comprehend is why she isn’t concerned at the environmental damage being done to the foreshore area of the Tweed River on Chinderah Bay drive,” he said. “These illegal campers use this area for their toilet, they dump rubbish in the foreshore bush and the river, they light fires in the bush and this area now smells like a tip/sewer. “Illegal camping in this area has not just occurred since the floods it was there before the floods. “How long does it take to get legal advice and act.” Another resident, who preferred not to be named, has been in regular contact with local media and said he was “shocked campers refused alternative accommodation.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe action should be taken to remove campers from Chinderah Bay Drive? Or, do you believe people camping on Chinderah Bay Drive should be given the chance to find their own homes? Send your thoughts to editor@ theweekly.net.au

companies need to improve their game in responsiveness,” he said. “I also believe that insurance coverage needs to be connected better and my challenge to the insurance agencies is to think creatively.” Mr Ferguson said he proposed a collected insurance approach in high risk flood areas, in which residents could take out a combined plan and claim under the same banner should an incident arise. “I think there’s definitely a lesson to be learned from the recent flood and whether a cooperative risk sharing approach could be adopted for future insurance claims, is an area that needs to be explored.” In relation to future flood events, Mr Ferguson said people need to feel uncomfortable in order to have the best plan and be prepared for the future. “If you decide not to insure, with premiums and the like, then is there another option such as relocation or mitigation around your property,” he said. “We live and work in a floodplain, therefore if you continue to avoid addressing the flood risk then it could be at your own peril.” “People need to feel uncomfortable about the future and anticipate for another flood event. “Ensure you have your flood plan in place and you practice it, make sure you are exploring all your insurance options including any cooperative risk sharing options and do some things differently.” Mr Ferguson also praised The Weekly for it’s efforts reporting on the floods, which he said was comprehensive and kept residents informed.

AFTER 20 YEARS of good times the Chinderah Tavern Social Darts Club has now closed leaving behind years of fond memories. Club president Anne Bryant said the club had experienced a dwindling membership base for the past two years and was down to nine members when she felt the time was right to close. “It was becoming very difficult to find new members and due to the decline over the past two years, we felt it was best to end the club,” she said. Members were treated to a final hoorah at

the Outback Spectacular on the Gold Coast, as well as presenting a cheque for $400 to Riding for the Disabled. Mrs Bryant said she wanted to thank members past and present, the Chinderah Tavern and committee members for the good times. “While darts remains a popular sport across the Tweed Shire, we felt the club at Chinderah was unable to sustain a membership base,” she said. “We hope residents will continue to engage in their local dart clubs and keep them going.”

FLOOD RECOVERY coordinator for the Northern Rivers, Euan Ferguson, has praised the efforts of Tweed Shire locals for their “stoic strength” following the devastating Tweed floods in March/April and shared his views on the recovery process as well as calling for insurance companies to lift their game. Whilst many businesses have found their feet following the devastating impact of the Tweed flood, many South Murwillumbah businesses are struggling to bounce back with bills mounting and the need for visitors and shoppers to return. Mr Ferguson visited The Weekly on Thursday, August 3, to share his views on the recovery efforts as well as discussing ways both individuals and business owners can plan for future events and develop resilience. He said he was amazed by the support people had shown one another during the clean-up and prolonged recovery process which was recently estimated to be only a quarter completed. “There remains a long-term effort towards recovery from the floods,” he said. “But it’s amazing how humbling it’s been to see the resilience and watching people rolling up their sleeves to help others.” Appointed days after the flood by Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Mr Ferguson has more than 40-years experience in emergency services and was given the task of bridging the needs of flood-affected towns with local and state government resources. As well as overseeing the establishment of Flood Recovery Centres, Mr Ferguson also shared his views on insurance claims being denied and schedules taking far too long. Mr Ferguson said firstly that insurance claims had taken “far too long” after more than four months has passed since the flood event. “It is my view that insurance

Anger over service station plans Mud Trail to host open days for potters business owners, Mayor Milne conceded that the development may be given the green light. “Considering that the Council staff are recommending that the development be approved, it has been difficult,” she said. “However, we’re still hoping to have certain conditions in place including taming down of the signage and alterations to the landscaping to improve the visual amenity.” The Weekly attempted to contact the Coles Express media team raising the above points and we await their response.

Murwillumbah Potters working in the original schoolroom at Fernvale Road

THE ANNUAL North Coast Mud Trail Open Studios events will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 19 and 20. The Mud Trail opens up pottery sheds to the general public to get their hands dirty and their minds creative around all things clay. In 2012, a group of enterprising potters in the Australian Ceramics Association decided to promote open studios around the country, and foster regional events. The group decided to come up with the North Coast Mud Trail, which in the first year nine potters on the North Coast opened their studios to the public. There are now 20 pottery locations across the North Coast that take part including five are in the Tweed Shire. “There is great diversity in studios, styles and potters,” said Vicki Grima, Executive Officer of the Australian Ceramics Association. “Some studios are a single person, such as

Marian Williams in a huge barn. “And some are a group, such as the Murwillumbah Potters, who work in a National Heritage one-room schoolhouse at Fernvale Road, Murwillumbah. “The Stokers Siding Design Studio showcases the work of local artists and serves coffee and cakes. “The beautifully produced colour booklet has a detailed map of the area, and a quarterpage profile of each studio. “The North Coast is one of the most active regions in the country. It’s a very vibrant area. “It’s a great way to spend the weekend: driving around the spectacular North Coast, dropping in to visit potters, buying local work, and eating at the many charming local cafes and restaurants. Events will include free demonstrations, workshops, artists’ talks and pottery sales. To find out more information visit www. northcoastmudtrail.com

Fires lit around Tweed Heads South

A SPATE of deliberately lit fires across Tweed Heads South is driving Tweed Heads Firefighters bonkers and they’re appealing for witnesses to come forward and assist to track down the alleged fire bugs. Fire units have been called to more than six grass fires often involving dumped vehicles and looking suspiciously deliberate. “Another busy 24-hours (Monday, August 7) for 468 Tweed Heads Firefighters. Three large grass fires and three dumped cars set alight around Tweed South,” the fire crew posted on social media. “On two of the grass/bushfires we needed the Bilambil and Cudgen Rural Fire Service to access the incidents, thanks for the help.” The crew also thanked the support from Banora Point Fire Station who were called to assist with the grass fires. A previous fire, on Friday, August 4, took place at Fraser Drive and was again suspected of being suspicious. “Another night chasing deliberately lit grass fires around South Tweed.

MURWILLUMBAH LOCAL and business owner Phil Taylor has slammed plans by Coles Express to build a service station at the Roundhouse Tavern site, on the corner of Tweed Valley Way and Alma Street, subject to approval by the Planning and Environment Court. Mr Taylor’s comments followed an open-air hearing by the Planning and Environment Court at the tavern site last week, which attracted several prominent local business owners and residents objecting to the proposed development. Mr Taylor said he could not understand the “persistence in securing the site”. “We need another service station in Murwillumbah, like we need another flood,” he told The Weekly. Mr Taylor said he has concerns for traffic congestion at the roundabout as well as what he said will “deface” the entryway to Murwillumbah. “I am extremely disappointed by this proposed development and only hope there’s still time to have this redevelopment halted,” he said. Mr Taylor said he felt so passionately about stopping the development that he was willing to pay for Tweed Shire Council’s legal costs. “I will happily put money towards legal costs to fight this development, especially if we have a chance to stop it,” he said. Several questions have also been raised around why Coles did not attempt to buy another established service station, subject to availability. “If they wanted a service station so bad, for the shopper dockets etc, why didn’t they just buy one that’s already established,” he said. Mr Taylor was joined by several residents this week (see letters on page 4), expressing that the site could become an “eyesore”. While Tweed Shire Council Mayor Katie Milne put up a fight in the Planning and Environment Court, alongside several local

post reads. At midnight 514 Banora Point was despatched along with FRNSW 468 Tweed Heads Fire Station to reports of an unknown fire on Kirkwood road. On arrival crews found an area of grass alight and extinguished it quickly. When the incident came to an end and both responding appliances were returning to station, a large fire was spotted between the M1 & Harrier street, crews relocated and called for additional resources due to the size of the fire and the lack of access. 514 & 468B crews were able to gain access with vast amount of fire hose and tackle the fire. A small amount of bush was still alight in the distance and NSW Rural Fire Service firefighters were called to assist, and fought it till early hours this morning. We’ve been called back this morning due to re-ignition and are currently on scene fighting a small fire. “At 11.50am this morning Pumper 514 (Banora Point) was despatched to a “bush fire” between Kirkwood Rd and Drydock Rd. “On arrival firefighters located a small patch of grass alight and extinguished it before the fire was able to spread.”

Tweed writer wins national poetry award MURWILLUMBAH RESIDENT Nola Firth has been named the national award winner of the Dangerously Poetic Poetry Award during the Byron Bay Writers Festival on Saturday, August 5. The national award was judged by Adelaide poet and novelist Heather Taylor Johnson and the poem is titled Counting on Murwillumbah. It is the only prize associated with the Byron Bay Writers Festival and is a joint venture organised by the Northern Rivers poetry group Dangerously Poetic and the Byron Writers Festival. Mrs Firth said earlier this year she published a biography (The Armour of Light: The Life of Reverend Doctor Barry Marshall) but had also been writing poetry for more than ten years. “My first poetry collection, Even if the Sun, was published in 2013 and in 2015 I won the Rhonda Jancovic Poetry Award for social justice,” she said. “I am really delighted to have won another national prize and within my own newly

adopted Northern Rivers area - especially as I am hoping soon to publish a poetry book containing a series of poems about Murwillumbah.” Mrs Firth said writing is an important part of her life and is both “very satisfying and also difficult”. “The craft itself is very demanding and there is the challenge of finding a publisher and of the low likelihood of financial reward even in the face of moderate sales success,” she said. “But being a writer/poet in the Northern Rivers is not more difficult than writing from near Melbourne. “I am supported by the beauty of the natural world here as well as by other writers and poets who live in the Northern Rivers and I talk online with writing friends from often faraway places. “Dangerously Poetic, the Byron Writers Festival and The Queensland Poetry Festival – Brisbane is not far away – and are also enormously helpful.” The poem is printed in full below supplied and authorised by Mrs Firth.

Feeling Dizzy?

Homage to Kevin Brophy’s poem ‘Numbering’

You could have a balance or vestibular disorder

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

T

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

HOW CAN YOUR OSTEOPATH HELP? There are many causes of dizziness or vertigo. But most types of vestibular disorders can be diagnosed by means of a thorough medical history and clinical examination. The most common type of vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), and once diagnosed is easily treated with repositioning manoeuvres, with a success rate of 90%. 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.

Three police cars chase a Holden down Main Street, lacing our life with sirens, burning rubber and risk. An older battle platform, a grey plank, is wedged into a dead tree trunk in the park. Here we are to remember that pioneers with balance and crosscut saws tamed 'the big scrub'. Cheers rang out as each straight, 2000-year-old, red gold pole fell. And fell. All gone in 30 years. Opportunity is still sought. There are four opportunity shops in town and the homeless man sleeping in a red car on the reserve tells us that the snakes and spiders are out now. Regardless, that night we eat at one of three Indian restaurants in the street under orange fairy lights. Three children, laughing, push each other in a supermarket trolley past the restaurant along the nearby empty pavement. Two streets away the Sikh temple’s cupolas glow. Their school notice board says truth is self-knowledge. The nearby Anglican church fete sells coconut ice in tiny, handmade paper baskets. Blessings arrive from two more directions. The Hare Krishna temple, just out of town, has a golden cow guarding us all. The Austral café also welcomes us into its pale blue 1950s booths And four currawongs call from red seeded chandeliers that drip from the Bangalow palms. The carpet snake that lives in the roof of the old Queenslander is not so blessed. He took a kitten in his huge embrace and ate it. ‘Relocation’ will be his punishment. Will he, original dweller, find his way home? Seven brush turkeys parade through my backyard, seemingly unsurprised by life and the big black vertical tail that follows their every step. They live on the hill under the camphor laurels, the weed trees, non-natives, new residents, like me.

Eastcoast Auto Auctions opens AN EXCITING car dealership offering a huge range of trade-in vehicles has opened at Chinderah, behind the BP Service Station, with some amazing prices and brands on offer. Eastcoast Auto Auctions is located at 15 Ozone Street and is owned by Adam Hall, who has a stockpile of trade-in vehicles from one of the largest dealers on the Tweed Coast. Mr Hall said the site was still working towards auction days for residents, however shoppers are welcome to browse the lot with more than 150 cars available both on site and off site. “We have a great range of used cars at the site, with every car displaying the reserve price and we also offering warranty and finance on site so you can drive away,” he said. “We also offer trade-in or you can even sell your own car on the lot.” Mr Hall said the site took about 12 months to prepare after it was a former wrecking yard, but has since been transformed into a modern, purpose built sales warehouse. “We’ve spent a lot of time getting it up to the current standard and because the site is not on a main road, we have the added advantage of offering lower prices,” he said. A new service centre is also in the works to give customers services and parts which is expected to be open in the coming months. “We have a huge range of cars from $1,000 to $50,000, for all budgets and a great range of vehicles across a variety of trusted brands,” he said. Plus, if you’re feeling lucky you can also make a realistic bid on a car. “Come and have a browse, if you like something place a bid on it,” Mr Hall said. Anyone wanting to find out more can speak to Eastcoast Auto Auctions on-site sales executive Zac Launchberry on (02) 6674 2317.

1. Body and paint – Inspect the body for dents, ripples or creases, loose, misaligned or mismatched panels, paint overspray, evidence of rust or crash repairs, and hail damage. Check that the doors, boot or tailgate close easily and latch firmly. 2. Interior – Check the seats, carpet and interior plastics for stains, damage, cracks or wear and tear that’s not consistent with the age and kilometres of the car. 3. Vehicle identification – Check that the car’s VIN – vehicle identification number – matches the VIN on the registration papers. You’ll find the VIN on a small silver build plate that’s usually in one of the rear corners of the engine compartment, or at the base of the windscreen. While you’re there, also confirm the car’s build and compliance dates. 4. Engine oil – A stamped service book will tell you if a car has been serviced at regular intervals. Checking that the dipstick shows a full supply of clean, honey coloured (not black) oil will provide extra confirmation. 5. Engine – Ensure the engine runs smoothly and quietly at idle and while driving. 6. Radiator coolant – Only remove the radiator coolant cap when the engine is cold; the coolant should be clean and brightly coloured, typically green or red.

7. Tyres – Ensure all the tyres (including the spare) are in good visual condition without signs of damage or uneven wear, and with tread depth above the minimum wear indicators. Ideally, the tyres should be of the same brand and pattern. Fluid leaks – Look around the engine compartment and underneath the car for signs of oil, coolant or other leaks that might indicate poor maintenance and potential repairs. 8. Exhaust – Black, blue or white smoke from the exhaust indicates an engine problem. Excessive exhaust noise or a knocking sound from under the car can indicate an exhaust system problem. 9. Seat-belts – Ensure the seat belts extend and retract smoothly, that the locking mechanism works, and that the belts are in good condition. 10. Lights – Test the operation of head- and taillights, indicators, park lights, reverse and number plate lights. 11. Warning lights – With the engine running, make sure there are no warning lights illuminated on the instrument panel. 12. Equipment – Check that all the accessories work, including the air-conditioning and fan, power windows and mirrors, audio system, satellite navigation, parking sensors and reversing camera, jack and tool kit

Ten years and still battling climate change

Tweed Climate Action Now members Cheryl Forrester, Eddie Roberts and Greg Reid

MURWILLUMBAH locals from Tweed Climate Action Now are reflecting on ten years since being established as a movement to address global warming at the local level. Tweed Climate Action Now was formed in response to the screening of the “Inconvenient Truth” in 2006. It is today estimated that 10,000 homes and business across the Tweed Shire have installed solar systems and made steps to become more sustainable. Members Greg Reid, Cheryl Forrester and Eddie Roberts spoke with The Weekly this week to reflect on the climate change movement. “There aren’t any bigger challenges than Global Warming but we have to take it on,” Mr Reid said. “After 10 years the changing climate is clear for all to see. Winters are milder and shorter. Floods faster and higher. Summers longer and hotter. But other things have changed too. “Solar is now so cheap that it is best way to cut power bills and it is estimated that 10,000 households and businesses in the Tweed have installed solar panels. “Electric cars are moving into mass

production and coal power plants around the world are being closed or cancelled.” Mrs Forrester said more was needed to address what she believes is one of the biggest issues facing our future. “My grandchildren need me to do what I can now, before it is too late,” she said. Mr Roberts said acting locally was also a key driver of the group’s campaigning. “We have to listen to the science, not to self-serving spin. And we have act locally.” While not responsible for all the sustainable switching across the Tweed, members of the Tweed Climate Action group continue to play active roles in the promotion of a green future. On Friday, August 18, the group is also arranging a screening of the new film “An Inconvenient Sequel” at the Regent Cinema. The group has struggled with a shoestring budget, limited resources and volunteer burnout but much has been achieved. “Over the years, the group has facilitated hundreds of solar panel installations, pushed action from local council, launched numerous initiatives for community and business, organised rallies and kept global warming on the political agenda, but has it been enough?” Mr Reid said.

Water extraction talk at Uki Hall

TWEED WATER Alliance will host a community information and performance afternoon at the Uki Hall on Saturday, August 19, to discuss the issue of water extraction from 3pm to 6pm. Coined “water mining” by the Alliance, members said they will discuss topics such as "what is the issue that we call Water Mining? And how will it affect you, the community, the environment in Uki and the greater Tweed Shire?" The meeting will also include discussions around water extraction as well as featuring live music. Talks will come from a range of speakers who will provide information about how industrial scale water extraction could affect the roads and infrastructure, road safety, the region's ecology, the effects on water tables and water extraction from an Indigenous viewpoint. A movement against water extraction began in early 2016 when several submissions were made to Tweed Shire Council to extract groundwater for commerical purposes. The Tweed Water Alliance comprises a small number of volunteers and was formed to oppose industrial scale water extraction from the Tweed Valley. "Raising funds will allow greater participation in speading our message to the wider community and taking our message

6 Hayes Toyota – growing with the Region

Hayes Toyota have seen many changes since Albert George Hayes opened for business on the current site in 1917. However, as the Automotive Industry continues to roll out massive technical changes and innovations, Hayes Toyota has had to embrace the exciting challenge of delivering the modern experience to the public. Toyota Motor Corporation, the largest Automobile manufacturer in the world, is leading the way with products for the broader motoring public. Technology like Hybrid (Petrol/ Electric) engines which have now been widely embraced by government fleets, taxi fleets and spreading rapidly in the private market are soon to be replaced by Hybrid Hydrogen/Electric cars. The first of which were rolled out this year in Japan and Europe and will spread to other markets as delivery networks are developed to service them, emit only water from their exhausts. Hayes Toyota are constantly investing in upgrades in Dealer Management Systems, New Staff and training to better deliver the experience to their customers. With the 100 year milestone quickly approaching Hayes Toyota has a succession plan to take it well into the future and continue the strong bond it has with Murwillumbah and the Tweed and Byron shires it has serviced for so long. Hayes Toyota has released the New Model Hilux Range which has been a huge success. The all new Hilux is a completely new vehicle. New chassis, new motors, new transmissions, new body and almost everything else. “The new hilux is tougher, stronger, more comfortable, more powerful and more impressive than I could have hoped for,” said Bert Hayes after he had driven the vehicle at the National release to Dealers at Cairns recently. The Fortuner was released soon after the new Hilux and has also proven to be a huge success. Essentially, the Hilux Wagon, this tough customer will prove very popular in a market that is looking for versatile seven seat RV’s that really deliver on road comfort with real off road capabilities. For the family motorist, Hayes Toyota cannot recommend new Camry highly enough. This superbly built car is without doubt the best value medium sedan on the market today. Priced below its predecessors of ten years

ago, this beautiful vehicle comes in 2.5 petrol or Hybrid version and while delivering exceptional levels of comfort and performance, the economy of the entire range is amazing. Hayes Toyota are offering test drives on the entire Toyota range right now to show just how good they are. You are invited to book a Free no obligation Test Drive by ringing Melissa on (02) 6672 1666.

Since the industrial revolution the world has evolved into a disposable society. Automation has replaced traditional craftsmanship and quality. As a designer and a lover of all things vintage I have always been drawn to collect and admire curios from a bygone era. At Toad Hall Vintage (THV) I collate, curate and create found objects and bring them together in a collective mix of form follows function. The chippy, the unloved, the discarded and the forgotten all find a new life and purpose at Toad Hall Vintage. If you are looking for a statement piece that you will never find on a production line that has character and charm then this is the place to visit. I am a funky junk curator and creator with expertise in colour, design, wood working, leadlight, upholstery, hand lettering and stencilling. In the near future THV will be holding half day workshops to share the upcycling passion and teach new skills that transform objects to give them new purpose. The upcycled, French provincial and quirky style of Toad Hall Vintage now has showrooms at Reuse furniture at 297 Tweed Valley Way, Murwillumbah and 20th Century Antiques in Coolangatta. You can follow us on Facebook and our new website www.toadhallvintage. com.au is coming soon!

Local News 27


28 Local News Thursday August 10 - 2017

The People You Meet... with Fran Rabbitts THERE’S TALENT in the hills and valleys of the Tweed Shire and among them is Peter Heinek of Palmvale. Peter is a previous winner of an “Inventor of the Year” award and a farmer for many years where he invented a multi-purpose ‘Tractor Mulcher’, which is a labour saving device and a method to improve soil quality. To date, Peter has sold 200 tractors including several overseas. But behind every success there’s a story of the journey and this is his. The half hour that changed his life, was when Peter was outside an estate agent’s office in Murwillumbah scanning ads, one stood out so much that he went inside and half-an-hour later he was a property owner. “What you believe, you can achieve,” is a common belief among successful people. Success for Peter was discovering his Palmvale property 30 years ago. Originally from Germany, Peter’s parents emigrated to Australia with their two children settling for some years at Port Kembla. After finishing school, Peter worked at various jobs before deciding to see more of Australia. So he travelled North and South to Tasmania and then in 1979 to Palmvale, Murwillumbah. It’s here that he has found his slice of subtropical paradise. “It had been degraded by dairy farming and mostly treeless, but I knew that it could be improved, it has abundant water from the creeks and with soil improvements, I knew the potential was there,” he said. His goal was to improve the land to a selfsufficiency stage capable of supporting a family in the future, which he has achieved. Keeping costs down was essential and he decided to live on site and after many trips to the Murwillumbah tip, there was enough corrugated iron, plastic, and off-cut timbers to build a small weather proof hut where he camped for five years. There’s avocados, lychees, jaboticabas and he’s trialled other tropical produce often against some local sceptics advice who exclaimed “they won’t grow here, the valley is too cold and often there’s icicles on the fences”. But Peter proved them wrong as his

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals orchards continue to thrive and provide an income. Never one to stop challenging himself, Peter then studied successfully for his “organic certification” which is important when your produce is sold at local markets. The property has supported two families, not bad for a bloke who lived in a hut built from recycled materials. Now married while the crops matured he worked locally enabling him to support his family. Over time two brick houses were built and loads of earth were shifted giving panoramic views of the surrounding hills and property. “There are more than 20,000 bricks here and each one has my handprint on it,” he said. “Instead of a tractor I only had a horse to help. We hauled out fence posts and whatever I couldn’t handle the horse and I did together.” Over the years he’s trialled many tropical fruits some new to the area, but with income possibilities this was another step towards his goal of self-sufficiency. Meanwhile, he’s always been prepared to work locally according to conditions such as crop wipe out and weather conditions, and always found work locally enabling him to support his family and meet their needs. Visually the property is a delight, it’s approached via an avenue of mature pines lining the meandering creek where the kids dip in, then past groves of mandarins, Davidson Plum trees and for the owners there’s also lychees, pineapples and mangoes. But, Peter and his wife have the wanderlust, and it’s time for them to have no responsibilities just the ability to be spontaneous, rediscover what’s around another corner and go on the wallaby. Meanwhile there’s a piece of secluded paradise waiting for a discerning owner. To find out more email peter: peterhei@ bigpond.com.

Adopt your forever friend FRIENDS OF the Pound members are calling for Tweed Shire residents to observe International Homeless Animals Day on Saturday, August 19, by adopting a new forever friend. Friends of the Pound Marketing Manager Lorna Hudson said Elanora-based animal rescue group, Friends of the Pound, will be offering discounted microchipping in honour of the day. This will be available for $40 on August 19 and August 20 from 10am to 3pm at their Rehoming Centre at Shop 37, The Pines Shopping Centre, Elanora. Friends of the Pound is also currently calling for urgent donations to its latest online (Go Fund Me) campaign, which is hoping to raise $200,000 towards the purchase of a permanent shelter for the group. At present, the organisation, which specialises in rescuing animals from the “kill lists” of Queensland and NSW pounds, has more than 60 animals in its care waiting to find a forever home. “After the organisation’s current lease at The Pines Shopping Centre expires in midAugust, the group will effectively become “homeless”, so they are looking to raise this before then so that they can continue to rescue “death row” animals,” she said. The campaign can be found at https:// goo.gl/wG0Abh. The following is three stories of two cats and a dog that are in need of forever homes. 1. BFG

BFG was one of 20 cats that were rescued by Friends of the Pound last September from a deceased estate. She was discovered hiding under the bed in one of the rooms, severely overweight and barely able to walk at a massive 9.45kg - almost double the recommended weight for an adult cat. Since arriving at the shelter, BFG has been placed on a radical weight loss diet, and has lost several kilos. Although at first, she could hardly move and would put her paw out to drag the plate towards herself at meal times so she could eat without standing up, she has come along in leaps and bounds, as she can now come for her food, eat standing up, and run around with the other cats. BFG is estimated to be around elevenyears-old, and will make a lovely companion

cat when she loses a little more weight. It is hoped that she will be available for rehoming over the next couple of months. 2. BARRY One-year-old Barry the Barn Cat arrived at Friends of the Pound last December from the Tweed Shire Pound. Despite his good looks and expert mouse catching skills, he is still waiting to find a new home. Barry is believed to have been mistreated or manhandled as a kitten, as despite his mostly friendly and obedient nature, he has the tendency to display defensive behaviours such as biting and scratching. However, Friends of the Pound’s Cat Co-ordinator Sonia Trichter has been fostering Barry over the last couple of weeks, and has found that he doesn’t play rough as much now that he has settled into his new surroundings, and is confident that he would make a great companion within a quiet, loving household. Barry is currently available for rehoming, with an adoption fee of $140. He would prefer to be an inside cat, as he does not like to go outside, and would be best suited to a home where he would be the only pet. 3. GRACIE Fo u r - y e a r - o l d English Staffy Gracie was impounded at the start of July after being found wandering the streets with a severely ulcerated eye that required urgent medical attention. When her owners were unable to be contacted, she was taken in by Friends of the Pound, and underwent surgery to remove the affected eye, which unfortunately couldn’t be saved. Throughout her surgery and recovery, she has remained an affectionate, happy-golucky little dog, and is excited to begin the journey to finding her forever home. Now that her stitches have been taken out, she is ready to be desexed and vaccinated, which means she should be ready for rehoming around mid-August. She is very friendly and affectionate, and gets on well with other dogs, so would make a fantastic companion within any loving household.

DEBRA Australia is a voluntary non-government funded support group that helps individuals and their families with Epidermolysis Bullosa, more commonly known as EB. An EB person has skin that is as fragile as butterflies’ wings so they are affectionately known as “Butterfly Children”. This rare genetically inherited skin disorder is incurable and requires painful 3 hour dressing changes every

second day. DEBRA Australia works to provide financial and emotional support to families with EB as well as advocating and providing vital funding to research for a cure. We are hoping to raise as much money as possible to go to such a deserving charity. If you sell with us you will be donating to this wonderful cause or if you don’t have a property to sell but would still like to donate to this cause please visit their website http://www.debra.org.au/ b and follow the steps on how to donate directly. It’s a great feeling to give what you can to those in need.

Hi all, welcome to this week’s Local Sounds. Its competition time - Passport to Airlie Beach - Battle of the Bands will be happening on Saturdays in late August and early September at The Nimbin Bush Theatre culminating in a final at the end of September. The biggest band competition in Australia has chosen Nimbin as the only location between Tamworth and the Gold Coast to host the competition, and why wouldn’t they! Nimbin and the wider rainbow region is bursting with some of the most talented and original artists in the world. This is a chance for aspirational musicians to have a shot at playing three to five gigs at The Airlie Beach Festival of Music in November 2017, to receive $1,000 and great accommodation as well as a chance to compete for the Grand National prize which is a spot on the main stage at the Airlie Beach Festival of Music in 2018. It is the only band competition in the country that is free to enter and free to attend and The Nimbin Bush Theatre is opening its doors. Our judges between them have a huge love of music and a wealth of musical experience and are Neil Pike (The Pagan Love Cult), Sam Cutler (Mgmt, Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead), Chana Waters (Tweed Creative Studios), Jackie Marshall (The Musician’s Musician) and David Hyett (Owner of The Nimbin Bush Theatre). This is a competition that does not seek to raise money with entry fees, ticket sales and sponsorship deals. You simply win the opportunity of playing at a great festival and all the advantages that comes with that. The competition is the brain child of Gavin ‘Butto’ Buttlin who runs the Airlie Beach Festival of Music, he says “I wanted to create a festival where you could see the classic rock bands and hear the songs we grew up with, and at the same time discover new talent and give them a chance.”

The competition is open to most genres including rock, pop, blues, folk, alt and acoustica, and can feature large bands (a maximum of five artists), solo performers and duos. All genres, ages (must be 18+) and ensemble sizes are welcome to apply. Due to the nature of the Airlie Beach Festival of Music super heavyrock/thrash/metal are not suitable for the competition as they would not sit well within the festival. This competition is open to all musicians whether from Nimbin, Murwillumbah, Byron Bay, Lismore, Tweed Heads, and beyond. Anyone from anywhere can enter, but be quick there are only 24 performance slots available. The Airlie Beach Festival of Music brings 74 acts to the Whitsundays from Thursday November 9 through to Sunday November 12. Already announced are performances from Glen Matlock (The Sex Pistols), The Sneaky Sound System, The Baby Animals, Leo Sayer, Kate Cebrano with more announcements to come - including the winners of the Battle of the Bands.

LADY MACBETH A period-piece thriller, Lady Macbeth is a British drama starring a new young talent, Florence Pough. The plot follows a young woman stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age. In 1865 rural England teenage bride Katherine is treated as a commodity: she is sold by her father, in exchange for land, to the middle-aged son of an elderly colliery magnate, who seems no keener on the arrangement than she and is unable to consummate the marriage. Like a captive princess in a dark fairytale, Katherine is instructed by her husband and by her father-in-law to stay indoors, attended by a large team of servants. When both men are called away on business, however, Katherine crosses paths with one of their tenant farmers and for the first time experiences an unfamiliar feeling. The connection is mutual, and it’s not long before the two become lovers. But as familiar as this setup seems, the story turns very dark quite unexpectedly as Katherine goes to increasingly extreme lengths to protect her newfound passion. As an extreme feminist cautionary tale about the ultimate danger of chauvinistically containing a woman’s desires and impulses, the film – adapted from Russian writer Nikolai Leskov’s 1865 novella Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk - will intrigue audiences seeking parallels to Shakespeare’s play by the same name, or of course D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. The corruption of its characters emerges gradually, in pursuit not of power but of sexual freedom — a kind of power in itself, of course, not least for women still bound to the gender hierarchy of 19th-century England.

A FLOOD fundraiser at the Victory Hotel known as Moofest attracted around 800 people and raised thousands for flood relief on Sunday, August 6. Organiser Jo Sapphire spoke to The Weekly and said that while the floods may have passed more than four months ago, there were still people and communities such as Mooball and Burringbar struggling to get back on top. Jo said her team of volunteers put together Moofest including music, markets with the aim to bring locals and visitors together. The festival fundraiser included 24 local musicians including standouts Matty Rogers, Phil Barlow and some young hopefuls all on the grounds of the Victory Hotel. “With a trailer stage, markets and food trucks the area was transformed into a mini festival site,” Jo said. “We arrived at 1pm and all the wristbands had sold out. The locals really got behind the initiative and the day was a huge success. “The three stages saw continuous music ranging from punk on the deck, rhythm and blues on the outdoor stage and indie in the bar. “It was a spectacular North Coast day - perfect for an ice cream, buying cooler fashion to replace the jumpers of the last few weeks, and help out a good cause. Victory Hotel bar staff Cassie Smith said around 800 people attended and it was described as a hugely successful event. “The feedback was amazing and people from all over the area and visitors,” she said. “We’re looking at running festival annually and set the standard. All funds raised were going towards the flood recovery effort across Burringbar and Mooball. “We are so grateful to the community and those that came out to support the day. “There are still people struggling following the Tweed flood and there’s a big to continuing supporting the recovery efforts. “There’s so many people fighting with insurance companies, young families have been forced to go elsewhere and rent while still paying a mortgage.” Anyone wanting to find out more can contact the Victory Hotel (02) 6677 1202.

34 NRL Tipping Competition Thursday August 10 - 2017 A MONTH to go and it’s heating up. Let’s have a look who’s left at the business end. 9th - The Dragons are gone. Costly loss against the Rabbits and I can’t see them getting out of trouble. Final round against Penrith may be vital but they have faulted badly at the wrong time. 8th – Penrith – Panthers will have a few teams nervous. Cleary is a real talent. Had a little bit to do with the kid and has a great head on his shoulders. He’s NSW’s answer at 7. 7th – Manly – stopped the slide with an emphatic win over the chooks. Tommy Turbo is in sublime form and DCE is justifiying his $1million a year paycheck. 6th – Cowboys – Still hanging in without JT. Massive game this week against Penrith which could see them drop to 8th. Morgan going great and

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals 2nd this weekend could be a glimpse of the first weekend in October. Intrigued to see how they bounce back. Really well balanced outfit. 1st – Storm – Such a clinical and well drilled team. They are rarely off and this time of year is when they excel. They can secure (probably already have) the minor premiership this weekend and continue to be the yardstick of the competition. $2.20 with the bookies to win the comp shows just how dominant they continue to be. They will be in the Grand Final – but who against? The Mustangs have a hope of entering the NRRRL finals this weekend if they can topple Marist Brothers at home and rely on Casino accounting for Tweed Coast also. A big crowd is needed for the last home game at Stan Sercomb for 2017 to get the boys home and hopefully sneak into the playoffs. See you at the footy. Quinny

the other JT, Taumalolo is vital to their final’s surger. 5th Eels – the team everyone is talking about. In winning form and confident form. Should win at least two of their next three and the top 4 is an option. I’m loving Corey Norman’s form at the moment, he is playing some really instinctive footy. 4th – Sharks – Doing enough but were disappointing last week. Huge game this week against the Broncos and finish with Cowboys and Roosters. Definitely have enough firepower to threaten. 3rd – Broncos found some point scoring brilliance of old last week which will be a great confidence boost with three games to go. The loss of McCullough will hurt but Hunt was great in the hooking role on Saturday. Big game players, Big game team, Big game club. 2nd – Roosters – should not have given up an 18-4 lead on the weekend. 1st v

Offshore: all the bigger snaps seem to be sitting off of the sea way, jumpinpin and off the southern reef in about 80m to 100m of water. Micro jigs still doing most damage on these nobs. Still the odd big reefy sitting around Fido’s, 5mile, 9mile and mud hole. But it’s really hard fishing out there at the moment. For mixed bag of reefies head to the 24’s and 36 fathoms. Strip baits and half pilchards on paternoster rigs working best. Still the odd kingy and cobia hanging around and is well worth soaking a live bait while you fish. Estuary: Big mulloway being caught at Brunswick this week. 200mm hard bodied lures doing all the damage around the rock walls. A few hanging around the river mouth in Tweed, try the red marker in the bar. Still a few being caught on 7 inch plastics in the jumpinpin and at the sea way pipe. Lots of bream schooling up on most rock wall. Luderick at Barney’s point, the tick gates, kingy rock wall, tally rock wall and south western side of the sea way. Tailor in the rivers. Small plastics on the run in catching some good fish. Try any current line or dirty water lines in the river. Lots of large flathead sunning themselves in the sand. 3 - 5 inch plastics catching the better fish. Beaches: Fingal, kingy, Hastings, black rock all fishing really well this week. With a heap of tailor being caught. Try soaking a ganged up pilchard around sun up and sun set. If it coincides with a tide change even better. Good number of tailor being caught off the headlands on metals. First light proving to produce more and better fish. Still the odd Jew, large bream and flathead being caught in these gutters too. Freshwater: good numbers of bass being taken at Clear island waters trolling hardbodied lures around the edges. Try a jig spin over the weed banks for a bit of fun.

Featured Business

We are a family-based tree maintenance business and have been operating for over ten years in the local area. Originally the family came up from Sydney in 1979 to a beautiful property in Stokers Siding – where we still are. Mike and Belinda Thomas-Hall are the parents, and Skye, James, Peter and Jesse the four sons, all of whom grew up in this area and went to school in Murwillumbah. Skye and Peter have moved to the city whilst the rest of us are still here: also Edna from Colombia, who James met in Sydney three years ago; they are now married with one puppy-dog called Piki. James bought himself a Chainsaw in 2001 and started learning the ropes in the tree industry. After a while his dad, Mike, started helping and gradually they built up the business together. Now they are fully equipped, certified and experienced for all types of tree work. Very recently Mike and Belinda retired (more or less) and now James and Edna own and operate the business. Jesse, the youngest son, is valuable assistant and co-worker. Our first aim is to provide good customer service, therefore to engage in constructive discussion to achieve the most satisfactory outcome. There are

MURWILLUMBAH VULCANS AFL

Under 8s - Coach Toni This week the mighty under eights took on the Ballina Bombers. Despite being outnumbered and outsized, they displayed great courage and determination. Jai and Ollie’s tireless defence repelled the Bombers attacks. Lachlan, Lawrence and Ethan kept hitting targets in the forward line while Ewan and our new recruit Narayan were great at reading the flight of the ball. What a pleasure it is to witness the personal improvement of every player as the season has rolled along. The teamwork and great sportsmanship that these boys display each and every week is a shining light for the future of our football club. I could not be prouder of them.

Under 10s - Coach Steve

The mini Vulcans played a much outnumbering and larger sized Ballina Bombers at home last weekend. Our boys valiantly defended their zones with the help of some extra Bomber players. Billi shone brightly in the centre out rucking the opposition. The new comer Drew took great delight in cleaning up any loose ball and sending it flying straight back up to the forwards. Taylor and Ben tackled mercilessly all game to minimise the ball movement from the Bombers. Oscar and Kaydon gelled together well in the back to make a very entertaining game of football. The crowd were given a great display of junior AFL by both sides given the evening up from Ballina.

Solo Resource Recovery Under 14 Boys - Coach Steve

The awesome Vulcans 14s hosted the Ballina Bombers in perfect weather, at Rabjones Oval. The poor Bombers team was ravaged by injury and illness, having to rely on 12s to make up numbers and was then savaged by a rampaging Vulcan mob, in full flight! With all ground positions being rotated by players ahead of the finals, we had some spectacular passages of play and some great scoring opportunities. Once again we were able to call on the assistance of our super talented U15 girls and U12 boys to make a real good fun match out of it, for all the players and both Clubs. Although the match was officially a no result due to forfeit, everyone at the ground was in full voice and just loved the spectacle as we swapped players around to make it into a wonderful success! As one AFL tragic was heard saying” That’s the best no result match I’ve ever seen!” Well done and great sportsmanship from everyone involved. Finals are only a couple of weeks out. Get behind the Vulcans as we go for back to back Premierships. On Fire.

Smile Street Under 15 Girls - Coach Andy. The Vulcan Girls U/15 Team remains undefeated, even with our two staunch defenders out on the weekend the girls were still able to play out a wonderful victory. Ciarn Larrecsy, Georgia Hutton and Jasmine MacDonald going to town on the goals in the first half. Bella Kidman and Lana Lee-Johnson were definitive in the middle, scorching the opposition with their relentless attack on the ball. Jemima Forsyth had her best game for the year, playing in the ruck, floating back to sure up the defence and then floating forward to snag a major. Our Captain for the day was Jasmine Dodds, after her legendary half time speech of, “Put them to the sword” she went on to do exactly that and had her best game for the season. Our new player Lalia EveninghamMills played her second match for the year, cooking the opposition with her fierce tackling and going on to kick her first ever goal in AFL footy! Congratulations goes to all our girls that played for Mount Saint Patricks in the Catholic Schools Northern Rivers competition held last Friday in Byron. After 4 games, in an epic battle with Trinity College in the grand final Mount St Pats brought home the bacon. Congrats to you all. A very special mention goes to all the invaluable sponsors of the Vulcans Junior AFL Club. Last home round all the sponsors enjoyed a jam packed day of action with the Vulcans taking the ground in all ages. The weather was perfect for footy and the atmosphere on the balcony was buzzing. Next round sees a local derby with Tweed Coast Tigers at Barry Sheppard Oval Round Mountain. Starting from 8.30am. See you all there.

Bowls Notes LAST WEEK’S Region 1 Championship Play-Offs at Woolgoolga were all that was expected and more with top quality bowling displays throughout the tournament. Cabarita Beach’s golden girls are now the toast of the Tweed Byron District following their success in the Triples and Senior Fours contests at this event. The combination of Joy Lake, Valerie Dudley and Faye Turner proved to be a formidable force for their opposition to contend with in the Triples as they continuously plundered shots mercilessly. CRD’s. team from Casino were the first to fall victim to the girls relentless scoring, that, in fact, included multiples of 6’s and 4’s, on their way to claim victory with a generous residual. The final against NRD’s. Ballina ladies brought about a similar result for the Caba ladies as, once again with a pocket full of multiples, they recorded a runaway victory to claim a berth in the State play-offs later this year. A brilliant result for the Cabarita trio. Fours events were conducted Thursday

with Judy Tuckey

and the Triples Champions were joined by Club mate, Lois McLeod, to contest the Seniors section. The morning game against Urunga (MNC) saw the girls get off to a good start and keep the opposition at bay, having a seven shot lead at the completion of 12 ends. However, a fight back from Urunga soon closed the gap to 13-12 after 17 ends. Lake and co rallied again and went on to take the game four shots up. The final against NRD’s. Ballina team was a very much one sided affair. Amongst the odd single shot declared, the Caba scorecard was peppered with multiples that left the ladies shaking hands when the score had blown out to 32-15 in favour of team Lake, and little time left for the opposition to devise a recovery. Another grand victory for the Cabarita ladies. Open Fours with Brunswick’s Jenny Lofts, Kerry Dexter, Sherril Pearce and Rosa Kinnear up against MNC’s Woolgoolga (home team, home turf) proved to be a hard day at the office for the girls. Whilst the Tweed Byron ladies fought on gallantly, they were overcome by their opposition

L to R – Cabarita Beach’s Golden Girls – Valerie Dudley, Lois McLeod , Joy Lake (S), Faye Turner.

who went on to be the eventual winners of this principle. Open Pairs with another Brunswick team, Jenny Meinel and Beverley Gawned, was a tough game for the ladies. Whilst they held their own throughout the game, the MNC team held them off to take the game with a minimal margin. Pottsville’s Alana Sharp and Judith Ahearn represented Tweed Byron in the Senior Pairs. Whilst leading in the early ends, the girls were overtaken by MNC in a close encounter and were unlucky to down by a mere two shots. Coral Nathan, Pottsville, encountered

MNC’s Kathleen McPhail first up in the Singles. After opening the card, Coral kept Kathleen at arms length and closed the game with a solid margin. Up against NRD’s. Patricia Baskerville the tables turned and Coral, herself, was left to play catch up. Down 11-1 after seven ends, a determined fight back from Coral resulted in the score being even (15-15) at the completion of 19 ends. A resurgence from Baskerville reigned in Coral’s charge and the NRD opposition went on to claim victory with a minimal surplus. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

Between the Flags Cudgen Headland SLSC

Kirsty Best had the locals cheering, with her win in the over 35 women’s division become Cabarita Longboarders’ first national champion a great performance, and a great local result. The Australian Surfcasters wrapped up after a great two weeks on the Tweed Coast and despite some difficult conditions the event was a success for the area and the area’s local surfers.

Casuarina going from strength to strength By Brian Laybutt THE CASUARINA Rugby Club first grade team travelled to Casino last weekend eagerly looking for a win. The Casino team were also desperate for a win, in an attempt to consolidate a position in the top four. Clearly from the kick off, the game was going to be a torrid and hard fought game. The Casuarina team had put enormous pressure onto the home team, but to their credit they were able to withstand the onslaught. In a see-sawing first half Casino managed to go into half time leading 12 -7. The second half promised so much and spectators were not disappointed. With both forward packs not giving an inch the game became a real arm wrestle, with the score fluctuating constantly. In a nail biting finish the Casuarina team looked as though their opportunity for a win had all but passed as they trailed 2924 in the dying minutes. Casuarina rallied for one last ditch effort. Casino turned the ball over on the halfway line and Casuarina secured the ball. The play went blind side through the backs with Webb Lillis getting into space and passing back inside to Vinny Quigley for a long range try under the posts. This levelled the scores and with a relatively simple conversion being successful the Casuarina boys were able to steal the victory 31-29. A great win for the Casuarina team, unfortunately for the Casino team, there top 4 aspirations have now vanished. With the end of the season just around the corner, the Casuarina team could have quite easily given up the ghost, especially with a number of key injuries and the travel distance of the away game - it would have

been very easy to make excuses for a lack luster performance. However the result and effort shown on Saturday was a real testament to the character and tenacity that they have shown all year. Rumour has it that the bus trip home that evening will now be part of Casuarina folklore- congratulations and well done to players, coaches and supporters. Next week is the teams last game of the year - playing Byron Bay at Brunswick Heads - kick off at 3.15pm. Come along and suppport your local rugby team. On a Junior level our u/15 team, after beating last year’s 2016 premiers, Lismore 19 - 7 last week, the team were very keen to show that this win was not a one off. On Friday night the team was ruthless in demolishing Ballina 60 - 0. The u/13 team continued on their winning way defeating Lismore 48-0 and their placement of being at the top of the table is certainly justified. Our u/12 team flexed their muscles on the weekend defeating Palm Beach Currumbin 62-15. Finally our u/14 girls team, continually play well and are simply the stand out performers within the competition. With the Far North Coast drawing to an end the girls teams will now enter the Gold Coast competition playing Sunday mornings ( new players always welcome). A big thank you to a number of our First Grade players who came along on Friday night to support the u/13 and 15s generating great club spirit. Casuarina rugby is continuing to go from strength to strength with players and supporters creating a wonderful atmosphere both on and off the field.

HOCKEY with Richard Phillip

Women Murwillumbah had a hard fought game against Kingscliff but eventually came away winners 1/0 with a goal to Karen Iwanuscha. Best on field was Murwillumbah’s Kelly O’Gorman controlling the midfield and for Kingscliff it was their Goal Keeper Sarah Franklin who had to dig deep to try and keep a clean net as Kingscliff were down on troops with injury and other commitments. The Mullumbimby Suns were up against the undefeated Waratah Falcons and had the better start with a goal midway in the first half. Mullum were looking good as the Waratahs seemed to be slow and lacking interest but managed to score an equaliser with 20 seconds left on the clock in the first half. The second half saw a more determined Waratahs side as they scored two soft goals and then two brilliant team goals to end the match with a 5/1 win and four goals to Emily Hetherington. Casuarina had the bye as this week as the Tweed Teams play their own round and Gold Coast play theirs. Men’s Matches In Murwillumbah on Saturday Kingscliff were up against the more fancied side Burleigh. Burleigh had any easy win with a 5/1 result as Kingscliff were just out played by a better team.

Waratah’s Brooke Saddler takes off after gaining possession from Mullum’s Maddie Fuller.

2/0 win but it could have went either way as Labrador missed some great opportunities to score as the young Waratah side struggled to maintain any real pressure. Casuarina won a close game against Capri on the Gold Coast with a 3-2 scoreline. The final game was between two Gold Coast Teams Mudgeeraba and Griffith Roosters with Mudgeeraba wining 3-1.

Newborns and Young children Early loss of teeth can contribute to poor jaw development and loss of space for permanent teeth, leading to malocclusion (tooth crowding) and breathing issues. Application of fissure sealants on posterior molars to prevent ‘groovy’ teeth from decay. Good habits develop early (tooth cleaning, diet, and prevention of bad habits eg. Pacifiers, bottle feeding, finger

sucking) and these begin with early consultations with your dentist. Do you know that your child may be eligible for $1000 of free Dental treatment under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme? For further information, or to check eligibility, call us direct or contact Medicare on 13 20 11.

Children should have 6 mthly check-ups from newborn. Why? Monitor growth and development – swallowing and breathing patterns; growth of jaws to accommodate teeth. Tooth decay in baby teeth reaches the nerves and blood supply quicker than in adult teeth, thus requiring treatment of otherwise preventable infection or extraction.
