Valley Women’s Service. “This is a service which has provided counselling, accommodation and support for women and children for more than 30 years. “The complete inaction by the NSW Government and the North Coast Nationals MPs over the closure of the Tweed Valley Women’s Service is both shameful and irresponsible. “We have a domestic violence crisis across this nation, and on the NSW North Coast the state National Party MPs Geoff Provest and Thomas George have refused to help this service. “It is shameful. As both the state members had shown they were unwilling and unable to do the job they were elected to do, I launched this petition, with the support of the community, demanding the NSW government restore funding to the Tweed Valley Women’s Service, and I continue to call on the New South Wales government to properly fund this service. “I thank all those thousands and thousands of people who signed this petition for this very important service.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you think the new OTCP CEO should consider the possibility of re-opening Tweed Valley Women’s Service? Send your thoughts and letters to editor@ theweekly.net.au (Read more below)

ON TRACK Community Programs CEO Elaine De Vos has tendered her resignation with immediate effect this week citing “personal reasons” after two years in the top job. Ms De Vos (pictured) spent the last two years implementing broad sweeping changes to the organisation as well as fending off criticism for assisting with the closure of the Tweed Valley Women’s Service in December 2015 and further streamlining measures designed to centralise domestic violence support services. Ms De Vos heaped praise on the OTCP staff and said she leaves a “dedicated team who are committed to the 3-SA core strategic objectives including industry leader, best in class and social entrepreneurs”. Earlier this month, Ms De Vos claimed members and supporters of the Tweed Valley Women’s Service were being “misinformed” and she attempted to emphasise that more domestic violence victims were being helped since the Tweed Valley Women’s Service closed. Ms De Vos said the group helped 731 women and children experiencing domestic violence in 2016, compared to 2015 figures when TVWS were operating that showed 657 people were helped, according to OTCP. “It is a shame that since the closure of the Tweed Valley Women’s Service a lobby group continues to misinform the community about the availability of domestic and family violence services in the Tweed,” Ms De Vos said. “The reason for the closure was the service had consistently failed to provide the protection and support to vulnerable clients required under the NSW Government-backed contract.” Meanwhile, Federal member for Richmond Justine Elliot MP said she was pleased last week, along with community representatives, to formally hand over a petition with more than 10,000 signatures calling on the NSW State Government to restore funding to the Tweed Valley Women’s Service. “The petition was presented to Jenny Aitchison, NSW Shadow Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and she will now lodge it for debate in the NSW State Parliament. “I launched this petition in January 2016 after the women’s service was forced to close when their contract was suddenly cancelled by their lead agency, On Track Community Programs. “This parliamentary debate is now triggered because more than 10,000 people have signed the petition to restore this very important state government funding to the Tweed

Thank you to our local hospital staff

Having just been discharged from the Murwillumbah Hospital Rehabilitation unit following a stay in Tweed Heads Hospital, I would like to take this opportunity of publicly thanking the doctors and staff of both facilities. The attention and personal oneon-one car was, in my opinion, really outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. All of us in the ward were from different backgrounds and all received constant attention with dignity. Interestingly, prior to admission I had heard adverse comments concerning the quality of meals. I took particular note of the nutritional content, presentation etc - and I found the protein plus three or four vegetables and dessert more than adequate. Not exactly what we would cook at home, but nevertheless 8.5/10. Australians can be appreciative and grateful for the professional medical care we have available. It far outshines the assistance offered in the USA and scores of other countries. Nancy Gice, Bilinga

I have several questions about Kingscliff foreshore

Why in heavens name could you not use the immense stretch of “parkland” along the foreshore of Kingscliff to build your “family space”? I have never seen so much empty grass area in my travels around Australia. Grey Nomads are increasing by the thousands as the baby boomers (and others) head to the roads and yet another caravan space is either being pulled down or succumbing to the mighty $$ by building more and more cabins and less caravan sites. I feel for the poor long-time residents of these parks, but do agree that it was time for improvements to the foreshore, but why in this spot? Surely an upgrade with the finished

All while the plight of coastal koalas goes on

It’s this simple – the Men’s Shed and their supporters don’t care about koalas. Period. We have repeatedly explained the issues at Black Rocks but they refuse to acknowledge: 1. Tweed’s coastal koalas are in imminent danger of extinction and listed as Endangered 2. The colony at Black Rocks is the most ‘stable’ of all three coastal koala cells (according to council) 3. Black Rocks koalas are dying three times faster than they can reproduce due to human disturbance 4. Loud noises largely contribute to stress-related chlamydia where they go blind and die slowly and painfully 5. The Men’s Shed is an industrial-like facility that would be situated 20m from koala habitat and would likely cause significant impact according to Australia’s leading koala expert. 6. Four ecologists have recommended that the area be given back to the koalas to allow them to recover from the Xmas 2014 fire. Dr Steve Phillips has called for a moratorium on all development there till they do recover. Instead of respecting this extremely fragile cell of koalas’ needs, the Men’s Shed pushes for Black Rocks instead of applying to Crown Lands for another site (which they stubbornly refuse to do). The Men’s Shed undeniably do fabulous work and need a home. But they are acting like spoiled children who insist on their way with no flexibility, co-operation or compromise. When coastal koalas are extinct, will you remember the Men’s Shed and the councillors who voted for them to go to Black Rocks? I will. Menkit Prince, Uki

Attempts are being made to silence Men’s Shed members

Chas Armstrong (TVW, February 9) claims David Norris has no business commenting on Men’s Shed matters, but it’s sadly Chad Armstong who is misinformed. Firstly, Mr Norris is a paid up Men’s Shed member, although he been wrongfully excluded on the basis of an error made by the secretary. Secondly, perceived community support has been garnered by misleading claims. The Men’s Shed is not truthfully disclosing that Council (Troy Green, by email July 19, 2016) asked the Men’s Shed to pursue proper

application to Crown Lands, as recommended by AMSA and Crown Lands, and the Shed Committee refuse to do so. It cannot be established by any party, least of all Council, that there is no other site until that application is made. So why is the Men’s Shed committee refusing to apply? It would appear they do not want any other site and are misleading the community to support a wrongful demand. Thirdly, Mr Armstrong, the Barry Sheppard Oval is a lesser distance than Black Rocks from the homes of by far the majority of current members of the PADMS. And fourthly, it was Warren Polglase who directed Council to be the applicant for the Black Rocks site and pay for the application (with ratepayer’s money) but it was never a Council matter and Polglase should not have dumped it on Council. The Men’s Shed Movement is funded by the Federal Department of Health, and health funding is a state and federal responsibility, which is why AMSA advises Men’s Sheds not to go to councils for land but to apply to Crown Lands under the Memorandum of Understanding entered between AMSA and the State Government specifically to ensure favourable consideration of applications for sites for a Shed. Unsubstantiated claims and hearsay have no place in a debate. Neither do knowing untruths. So, it’s time for the truth to be exposed, and for the Men’s Shed to stop their wrongful conduct and act responsibly to solve their own problem. Ap p ly t o C row n L a n d s i n accordance with proper and recommended procedure, and it’s quite likely they will find a very suitable site over which Council has no control. Lorraine Cobcroft, Pottsville

It is the natural resources of our shire that are the very real assets that support a diversity of business, industry and tourism which significantly contribute to the regional economy. O u r Tw e e d R i v e r a n d i t s ecosystems is a vital asset to this shire. Sustainable development and management is essential to sustain industry that supports the regional economy whilst protecting the resources on which industry depends. Ru n w a y e x p a n s i o n w i l l permanently and irreversibly destroy one of the most important and valuable ecosystems of the lower Tweed River system. The Tweed was planned and developed a very long time ago around a regional airport. As such the airport is not in a location that enables endless expansion, it is constrained by an existing urban footprint and competing interests must be balanced. The airport made a submission to council strongly objecting to a DA for a residential subdivision at Tweed Heads West that went before council in December stating re the adverse effects of aircraft noise on residents, “directly impacts on their health and enjoyment of their lifestyle.” It was supported by an expert report advising costs of acoustic upgrades would be up to $20,000. Runway expansion will adversely impact on economic growth and affordable housing in the Tweed. Landowners will see their land become sterilised or restricted from the otherwise permitted landuse. Value of people’s property investment will be devalued. The ever-growing airport car parks do not contribute to the economy or jobs and the airport transitioning to a transit airport has little benefit to the economy. The airport annually breaks its records with growth under the existing runway operational length. It cannot be a one-way street for profits for shareholders of a private company. Council staff are to be commended for the submission recognising the many factors, both positive and negative, along with those councillors who have the foresight to sustainability for our human communities and the diversity of business and industry in our shire. Lindy Smith, Tweed Heads

Airport expansion – what’s in it for the Tweed?

It appears from statements by the minority of councillors who voted against Tweed Shire Council’s submission on the airport’s Draft Preliminary Master Plan do not step outside the circle of their politics and mates. There is so much more that makes our shire tick other than tourism and the council has the responsibility for liveable communities for ratepayers, residents and the diversities of business and industry. The statement as has been previously reported from the general manager of an International Airline re the Tweed was, “the region will always be underpinned by the magnificent beaches and clear flowing rivers, all embraced by the Green Cauldron.”

Reece is finally opening a door to Men’s Shed

(Cr) Reece (Byrnes) you need to stick to the script. Cos when you don’t you say silly things like the shedders are responsible for killing 1000s of koalas. Fortunately, you have recognised

your mistake and are letting the men have what they were promised so long ago. Greg Kelly, Hastings Point

Cr Byrnes is playing politics

It’s extremely disappoiting to see Cr Byrne’s intervention in the Men’s Shed issue. It smacks of political opportunism. There’s a process in place looking for a permanent site. Geoff Provest needs to be lobbied to failitate this and end the deadlock. For a community ie Pottsville to be mired in this controversy is disheartening and bizarre that a win/win solution can’t be found, a permanent, non controversial easily accessible site. Thanks to Lorraine Cobcroft (letters 9th Feb) for some background information to explain how the current situation came to be. Cynthia Brook , Tyalgum

Where is the evidence?

Cr Byrnes asserts that current licences only allow for a measured use of water.......with nature in its course already recharging/refilling the amount taken”. In the Tweed Weekly January 19, 2017, a spokesperson for NSW Water stated there is currently no mandatory requirement to fit meters. It would be difficult to say how much water specifically is being taken from the groundwater as a total. Can Cr Byrnes please provide the evidence to support his assertion. Aquifers have one method of recharge. That is rainfall. Low rainfall equals low recharge. Cr Byrnes states that “many dairies require the use of trucks”. About six in the Tweed, Cr Byrnes, with most requiring a milk tanker once a day, some once every two days. He further asserts that Yaru Water already invest heavily into our local indigenous community.......” What evidence can Cr Byrnes provide to support this statement? Yaru water is a partnership with one Fingal Heads family, who own 51% of Yaru Water, the rest held by Mount Warning Springwater Company. (www.yaruwater.com) Cr Byrnes asserts that the water extraction industry provides many local families with employment. How many, Cr Byrnes? There are two bottling plants, the others export bulk water to Queensland. Cr Byrnes assertions sound very similiar to those of water extractors, who do not measure their groundwater draw down, talk about the necessity of this activity that Council only charges minimal fees to operate and talk about unlimited “sustainable” water availability. This brings into question the objectivity of Cr Byrnes to be talking and voting, on present and future water extractions in the Tweed. P. Veness, Uki

Beverley’s On Main bounces back after theft Read what locals had to say on social media Dereen Badger said: “Murwillumbah looks like its an easy target lately. Definitively a rising problem. I feel sorry for bystanders and shop owners. Shocking. Its only a matter of time until someone gets hurt. Such a shame, its a beautiful town and there are beautiful people here. Unfortunately some wreck it for others.” Ingy Roser said: “Horrified that this has happened to a person I consider ‘family’ and have known since I was was a youngster. If you are on my friends list and know anything about this please return the money to Aunty Bev or give it back anonymously.” Michael Thurtell said: “Same two people [allegedly] stole stuff at the BP last night, police were notified but thought it would be to much of a hassle to do much even with full footage and number plates! Might’ve stopped this if they at least went and picked up the tape this morning.” Jennifer Adcock said: “Mum often visits Bev there for lunch... I know she is a lovely lady who does not deserve this - glad you were not hurt Bev...hope they catch the people responsible.”

BEVERLEY’S ON Main Street owner Beverley Hill has given her deepest “thank you” to the local community for their support and help through a recent ugly theft at her boutique fashion store. Beverley has received a flood of enquiries and big-hearted gestures from locals, friends and complete strangers since the robbery on Wednesday, February 8. Beverley was the victim of a robbery after a 30-something man and a 30-something woman entered her shop and proceeded to make their way to the till. It was while Beverley was momentarily distracted by four customers that one of the thieves stole the bulk of what they could from the till before bolting. Bev took off after the thieves screaming for help, of which several locals including Daniel Crouch at Tweed Valley Floors and several other bystanders assisted. Bev has since received a range of gifts including a relaxing massage donated, cash and has found out her insurance will cover some of the costs. “It only took a second and they were out the door,” she said.

“We lost $450, but thanks to the kindness of locals especially Sandra Guthrie at Poster Paradise and the men who gave me $50 and $20 – I’m just so thankful to be a part of this great community.” The pair were chased down the street by Daniel narrowly missed catching them. Beverley said she was extremely grateful for everyone’s assistance. “It was such an amazing help from everyone in the community - I’ve come back quickly from this,” she said. The thieves were also alleged to have robbed the Salvos Store Murwillumbah, multiple service stations and may have also snatched a purse while running. Many believe the pair may have moved on to the next small town or suburb. The pair sped off in a gold Pulsar, which has not been located in the Tweed since and police continue their investigations. Anyone who locates the pair, or the vehicle, is encouraged to contact local police, or Crime Stoppers, see Police Beat on page 45.

Trevor Rose said: “No surprises ... corrupt governments hoard police resources to defend wealthy people & companies in cities, by attacking protestors & political activists who attempt to do the job the police are supposed to be doing.” Madelaine Holmes said: “Catch the bastards please because this town deserves better. Sorry for you Bev and your shop. Chase these people out of town. I am so upset for you.” Trish Webster said: “I was in there 10 mins before it happened,” --- “Then I went back to see if she was OK.” Mary Barnes You have to be cautious wherever you are these days. Ellen Poulsen Love that shop go every time I’m up there Mur bah certainly has changed Gayle Trenoweth-Greenall Glad you were not hurt Bev

LABOR, DON'T BACKFLIP ON WIN-WIN SOLUTION This endangered koala is one of many which have died with stress-related disease at Black Rocks. How many more will die now that the Labor Party and Councillor Reece Byrnes have backed an industriallike men shed only 20 metres from koala habitat at the junction of 3 koala linkage corridors? Labor and Reece did not wait for the outcome of a re-scheduled meeting in Sydney with Council, the relevant State Minister and Member to discuss two new potential sites. Instead they backflipped on a win-win solution and we are now faced with ongoing community disharmony and increased risk to koalas. Our international tourists wil l be shocked to l earn that the Commonwealth Games mascot is heading for extinction. How will Labor explain ignoring the koala expert who said that Black Rocks koalas would be significantly impacted by a men's shed?

DON'T USE OUR KOALAS FOR POLITICAL ADVANTAGE The health and well-being of our koalas is the responsibility of each and every one of us. Let's unite in our efforts to protect them. Reece, you said it was commonsense to defer the men's shed licence and find a permanent site. It is not commonsense to backflip for what appears to be political point-scoring.

THE LEGAL LIGHT! I’m separated with a child. What if I want to move interstate?

Fundraiser a big success to support Tate family A SPECIAL fundraiser for the family of the late James Tate took place at the Pottsville Tavern on Friday, February 10, and raised a staggering $26,000. James collapsed suddenly last month from a cardiac arrest and later passed away in hospital. The event was organised by local rockers Fat Albert including lead singer Matt Buggy. There were congratulations all round and a big thank

you to the community who contributed to the raffles and donations. “A big congratulations to Matt for his fantastic efforts for the James Tate Fundraiser raising over $27000 on the night to assist the family,” the Pottsville Tavern said on social media. “The entire community through there donations and the support on the night was nothing short of amazing. Thank you all so much.”

So you’ve met the partner of your dreams and want to live happily ever after, but there’s one small problem – he or she lives interstate. Will you be permitted to relocate your child to another state? Ruth Whisker, family law solicitor with Stacks Law Firm, says it’s a question that can become difficult if not handled delicately or it can end up in court. “The first thing to do is approach the other parent, explain the situation and try to reach an amicable agreement that allows the child to move with you,” Ms Whisker said.

ADVERTISEMENT

“It is important to reassure the other parent they will always be the child’s father or mother, and you will do everything you can to reinforce that relationship.” Ms Whisker said it’s important to do your homework and point out benefits of the new hometown for the child. What school will be best in the new location? What extra-curricular activities are available? Is there anything special the child will be able to do beyond what they can do where they are currently living? “It is vital to put forward a detailed and sensible proposal to the other parent about contact between them and the child should you be allowed to move. Some options include Skype, telephone and physical contact. Ask yourself how frequent will the physical contact be? What are the costs of travel and who will bear the cost of airfares? Is the child old enough to fly unaccompanied? “Make sure your proposals for contact with the child are age appropriate. There is no point proposing Skype and telephone contact for a very young child, as they do not have the attention span or understanding for meaningful relationship building this way.” Ms Whisker warns it’s best not to propose air travel every weekend for a high school student who will have assignments, sport commitments and exams. “If you are able to reach an agreement with the other parent, then you should immediately record that agreement in writing, preferably by parenting consent orders. “If you cannot reach an agreement, you must at least attempt family dispute resolution (unless there has been family violence or some other limited exceptions) before you can apply to the Federal Circuit Court for an order permitting relocation. “Obtaining an order permitting relocation is very difficult, especially if the court determines that it is in the best interests of the child to spend significant and substantial time with each parent. For the court, the paramount consideration must always be the best interests of the child.”

The ladies started fundraising in September 2016 with raffles, sausage sizzles, auctions and local donations to raise money for the Emergency Department and Birthing Suite of Murwillumbah Hospital. “Now that the money has been raised we can donate half to the Emergency Department and the other half to the Birthing Suite so they can finally get additional bathroom facilities for ladies in labour at Murwillumbah Hospital,” Alison said. “The fundraising effort really showed us how wonderful and generous the local businesses and community are in

getting behind us to support the Murwillumbah Hospital.” The Healing Passion Fundraiser team would specifically like to thank the following major sponsors: The Bottle-O/ The Lucky 7 Bray Park, Australian Law Group, Mayberry Meldrum Anderson, Arbonne and Elders Real Estate Murwillumbah. They would also like to make special mention of Attila E. Kaszo, Manmohan Janda, Des Cartner, Alissa Hunt, Kara Saddler, the staff at Mayberry Meldrum Anderson, Bryce Fitzgerald, A & B Blue Ribbon Meats, Limpinwood Valley Free Range Eggs, Amart, Tweed Valley Weekly, Norco Rural, Lux Costal, Keiths Coffee and Barber, Target, Murwillumbah Tyre Centre, Priceline, The Gym, Chozen, La Dulce Vida, Coles Murwillumbah, United Hospital Auxiliary of Murwillumbah and the local community. The ladies are set to leave for the Tasmania Overland Track to begin their 65-kilometre trek on Thursday, February 23.

THE MOOBALL community has expressed concerns for the future of the small village following an approval rezone the land which will allow for 250 new homes. Tweed Shire announced on Monday, February 13 that the rezoning had been given the green light after more than three years of negotiations. Council said in a press release that The Department of Planning and Environment’s decision to amend the Tweed Local Environmental Plan 2014 rezones around 50 hectares of land south of the village. The rezoning will allow for approximately 250 new homes to be built which could increase the population from 170 to 750 residents. Health concerns have been raised around the potential development following claims of a cancer cluster. The North Coast Public Health Unit decided against an investigation into the claims citing “vague information” around cancer patients. Residents have also expressed concerns with lot sizes ranging from 450m2 to 750m2. However, The Department’s Executive Director of Regions, Steve Murray, said the expansion of Mooball supports the Far North Coast Regional Strategy. “The rezoning will help the region meet its growing demand for housing through a diversity of lot sizes to suit different budgets for the growing population,” Mr Murray said. “This decision is also expected to deliver an expanded range of services and goods within the village’s commercial precinct as demand increases.” Tweed Shire Council received 36 submissions objecting to their proposal to amend the LEP. Some of the main issues raised in submissions included flooding, impact on the village’s character, sewerage disposal, land slip, land use conflict, insufficient information to assess the proposal’s impacts and a lack of adequate services and employment in Mooball to serve the development. The Department took all concerns from the community into consideration before arriving at its final decision. The proposal has been supported by a voluntary planning agreement which will ensure further studies on bushfire, flooding, Aboriginal cultural heritage and land stability inform the design of any future development of the site. There is also a requirement for design guidelines to be developed to help shape the future character of the village.

Agent Orange claims “fanciful” says water extraction applicant THE APPLICANT for a contentious water extraction application at Rowlands Creek Road, Uki, has laughed off suggestions that his property once housed Agent Orange in 1968. Jack Hallam submitted an application to extract 25 megalitres of water from his property’s bore to be bottled by Pure Water in Yatala using trucks for transportation. The application and others similar across the Tweed Valley have sparked widespread debate and anxiety from within the community. Jeremy Tagger of Tweed Water Alliance wrote to The Weekly as well as other media, claiming two chemicals that are used to produce Agent Orange were stored in a shed on Mr Hallam’s property in the late 60s. The chemicals 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5T) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxy (2,4-D) are herbicides, one of which is still in use today (2,4-D). 2,4,5-T was used for selective control of weeds but is no longer available. In the 1980s and 1990s governments across Australia outlawed the use of the herbicide. The ban was introduced for one very good reason - 2,4,5-T contains dioxin, a chemical impurity with the potential to seriously harm people who are exposed to it. 2,4-D has been used since the 1940s and was the first widely used herbicide to control broadleaf plants. Different formulations of 2,4-D vary widely in levels of toxicity, health effects, and environmental impact. Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) began a review of 2,4-D in 2003 due to concerns about its potential human toxicity (including carcinogenicity), occupational risks to people, risks to the environment and dietary risks due to residues in food. The review has examined all new and previously assessed scientific information. The final decision on the review of 2,4-D is expected by April 2018. To make Agent Orange the two herbicides are converted to an ester by adding an alcohol and mixed in equal portions. Mr Tagger claimed Mr Hallam’s property had a shed directly adjacent to the bore site and was used to store 2,4,5 T and 2,4-D. “2,4-D and 2,4,5-T are often contaminated with dioxin that is persistent in soil and water. Dioxin bio-accumulates

and is highly toxic. It can remain in the environment for up to 70 years,” he said. “In those days 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T were used to control weeds, and it was sprayed pretty freely. “Mr Hallam obviously did not make even basic enquiries about the historical use of chemicals on the land and for him to claim, without evidence, that contamination was of no concern, is deeply misleading. “There are many in this area who could have given him a more accurate history if he’d cared to ask or investigate.” Speaking with The Weekly Mr Hallam said the claims were “fanciful”. “You really have to question the motivation behind these claims,” Mr Hallam said. “You have to also wonder what was a dairy farm doing with these chemicals which would have dissipated many times over.” The Tweed Water Alliance has requested for Tweed Shire Council to require contamination testing of the land before the Development Application proceeds any further.

Could Tweed use a train?

TWEED SHIRE Council Mayor Katie Milne and Deputy Mayor Chris Cherry met with Banora Point resident John Sydenham this week to hear his concerns regarding the Banora Point canals, airport expansion plans and whether Tweed could one day welcome back the train. Mr Sydenham has been a long campaigner for improving aesthetics of the Banora Point canals through clearing of invasive weeds and promotion of wildlife. “Although there have been some improvements to the canals we’re still waiting for a long-term solution across the entire system,” he said. Mayor Milne walked the canals with Mr Sydenham and acknowledged that more needed to be done to improve the future of the waterways. “Having now seen some of the areas of concern I believe Council can do more to improve these waterways that were a leftover legacy from past councils,” she said. Councillor Cherry also acknowledged that Council needed to do more having campaigned in favour of cleaning up the canals during last year’s election. While discussing local issues, Mr Sydenham said he was instilling great trust in both the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to advocate for the return of passenger trains to the Tweed. Mr Sydenham’s comments were made following the announcement by Gold Coast Airport to extend one runway by 300 metres to the south and therefore creating greater air traffic above Banora Point residents. “We need to think about innovative ways to use our trainline infrastructure to reintroduce a train network back into the Tweed and provide alternative transport to visitors and locals alike,” he said. Mayor Milne spoke in support of investigating a passenger train returning to the Tweed and questioned whether the airport should be the only driver for visitors. Both the Mayor and Cr Cherry agreed to continue discussions with Mr Sydenham and acknowledged his passionate approach to the Banora Point community.

Access to the temporary Tweed Heads Library sites has changed for the next few weeks, as construction work continues on the upgrade of the nearby library building in February and early March. Wheelchair access during this period will only be available through the Tweed Shire Council Administration Office foyer, because safety fencing currently blocks access to the external ramp. “Contractors working on the Tweed Library expansion are cutting concrete in front of the library site, so fencing has been erected to protect the safety of library visitors,” Richmond Tweed Regional Library (RTRL) Area Librarian Selina Ryan said. “Signs will direct library users around the fencing to steps in front of the temporary library site. However, to ensure the safety of wheelchair users and other people with impeded mobility, they will need to enter through the Council administration building front doors.” To further assist users with impeded mobility, two accessible parking bays will be created in the carpark, immediately next to the carpark entrance from Brett Street. A new pedestrian crossing will also be created across the carpark entrance, linking the accessible parking bays to the administration office entrance. Ms Ryan said the concrete cutting and other works during the current stage of the library upgrade could also cause significant noise and vibrations which would also cause some interruptions. “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the noise and impeded access. However, this stage of work is scheduled to be completed in March, when more direct access to the temporary library site will be restored,” she said. The Tweed library relocated to its

temporary site at the Tweed Heads Civic and Cultural Centre, next to the auditorium, in January so users could continue to pick up reserved items, return resources and browse part of the Tweed Heads Library collection during the upgrade project. The temporary library is open Monday-Friday 9.30am 5pm and Saturday 9am - 12pm. A temporary computer cafe and reading room is also operating in Council’s Administration Office in Brett Street and is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4.45pm. Free wi-fi services are also available in and around the temporary library site. Children’s activities began this week at Council’s Community Centre (next to Tweed Heads South Aquatic Centre) at Tweed South. Storytime will be held on Mondays at 10am and Baby Bounce on Fridays at 10am. There are a few weeks they will not be held because the centre is being used for other events, so check the RTRL website at www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au to confirm dates. Children’s library materials will be provided from the Community Centre during scheduled Storytime and Baby Bounce sessions. All categories of the Children and Youth Collection are available from the Richmond Tweed Mobile Library, which will stop in Wharf Street next to the library site every second Monday from 10am to 3.30pm. The next visit will be 20 February. For further information about the library upgrade and library services, visit www. tweed.nsw.gov.au/Library or the Richmond Tweed Regional Library website, www.rtrl. nsw.gov.au.

Hastings Point development back on the table Heritage grants available MEMBER FOR Lismore Thomas George MP is encouraging owners and managers of local heritage items to consider applying for more than $4 million in funding for local conservation projects. Mr George said these grants were designed to help communities rejuvenate and conserve their local heritage. “I would urge all owners and managers of heritage items, councils, businesses, not-for-profit organisations and industry associations to consider applying for funding,” Mr George said. There are two heritage funding programs open for application: • $2.67 million in funding is available under the second round of Heritage Activation Grants program – this program is open to owners and managers of local heritage items listed on their council’s Local Environmental Plan; • $2 million is available under the first round of the Local Heritage Strategic Projects Program – proposed projects can include conservation and repair work, the development of heritage management, strategy and policy plans and projects developed to specifically raise community awareness, knowledge and understanding of local heritage These programs are designed to build on the knowledge and connection communities have with their heritage. “Communities know their heritage better than anyone – these NSW Government grants will help bring local heritage back to life,” Mr George said. Applications under the Local Heritage Strategic Projects Program are open all year round subject to available funding. Applications under the Heritage Activation program open today and close on Monday 21 April. For more information visit: http://www. environment.nsw.gov.au/ Heritage/heritage-nearme-incentives.htm.

A community action group, Save Hastings Point, was formed in response to a push to develop Hastings Point. The group established six clear areas of concern which are listed below: 1. There appears to be significant discrepancies between the ‘modelling’ of water flow impact on the estuary and surrounding properties, and actual lived experience. 2. While Creek Street remains in its current condition, public health and safety are severely at risk. 3. There is clear evidence that the estuary, following the illegal clearing and filling activities of the past, is now trying to re-find a path and this flows right through the centre of the proposed development site. This cannot be reasonably resolved by ‘good engineering’. It requires a re-opening of the original estuarine and tributary pathways. 4. There is further clear evidence with most of the illegal activity on the site being stopped for the past year, that where allowed, mangroves and other flora are re-establishing, and endangered bird-life such as jabiru and curlew are returning to nest. 5. There is no guarantee that single houses and not multidwellings will be built on site. 6. Sewerage will be impacted, especially in low-lying homes in Creek Street. YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe Hastings Point should be developed? Send your thoughts and letters to editor@theweekly.net.au

A NEW development application has been submitted to Tweed Shire Council to develop the contentious site at 40 Creek Street, Hastings Point. Two separate sets of documentation were submitted to Council in late December 2016 for the site with the new development application including a 17-lot community title subdivision with 16 dwellings (15 new) and a community lot. According to Council the new application is identical in content to the previous amended application. The previous development application, was submitted in March 2015 and included a 20-lot subdivision (DA15/0201) which was fought by the community with 131 submissions against the development. The 2015 development application was refused by Council and was the subject of a NSW Land and Environment Court Class 1 Appeal. According to Council, the 2015 development application was amended during the court process with the final proposal being a 17-lot community title subdivision including 16 residential lots and 1 community lot. The Class 1 Appeal was discontinued on the applicants request on November, 22 2016. According to Council “The concurrent new Development Application was lodged to expedite the matter if the Clause 55 request to amend the 2015 Development Application is rejected by Council. “Council’s legal advice recommends that the request pursuant to Clause 55 is not accepted and Council does not make a determination of the current DA15/0201.” The Class 1 Appeal process for the 20-lot subdivision involved the appointment of external expert consultants for flooding, stormwater, groundwater, ecology and town planning advice. Council says that they will need to appoint three consultants to a cost of approximately $30,000 to provide advice on the new application. In 2014 Council resolved to support an amendment to the Tweed Local Environmental Plan to give effect to the recommendation and planning guidelines contained in the Hastings Point Locality Based Development Code and the Pottsville Locality Based Development Code. One of the changes included changing the buffer area at 40 Creek Street from 50m to 75m. This change in the buffer affects the development application which has residential housing within the buffer site.

ALL THINGS LEGAL EUTHANASIA DEBATE OPENS UP LEGAL CAN OF WORMS

Victoria seems to be the next State to tackle the vexed issue of euthanasia following a change of mind by Premier Daniel Andrews, after his father recently died of cancer. Wills and Estates Partner, Angela Harry looks at some of the legal issues arising from this focus on Euthanasia Laws. There appears to be a shift in the national conscience with respect to legalising euthanasia – the term is given to assisting the death or suicide of a person who is suffering from a terminal illness or medical condition. Recent moves by the Victorian and South Australian State Governments have led to a possible scenario of some States or Territories in Australia allowing euthanasia within their State borders. The euthanasia debate has gained national publicity through various high profile members having personal experiences where they openly favour euthanasia. Andrew Denton, a famous Australian comedian and entertainer, gained national prominence when he publicised the painful death of his father. Mr Denton stated recently “I set out to try and answer the question, why are good people being left to die of bad deaths? 18 months later, having spent thousands of hours talking with people on all sides of this debate, I remain shocked at the level of suffering and trauma across the community in the absence of these laws”. However, the pro euthanasia lobby has not had it all their way. There are just as compelling arguments opposing any change to the current laws concerning euthanasia. As it presently stands, anyone causing or helping a terminally ill person to die can be charged with offences ranging from murder to assisting suicide. Many of these offences have lengthy prison terms as penalties. The anti euthanasia lobby believes that it is an impossible burden to place upon doctors and medical staff to make the decision about ending someone’s life when they are suffering from a terminal condition or illness. They believe that if someone is suffering in these circumstances, they should be allowed to receive the best palliative care available so as to ease their pain and suffering at the end of their life struggles. Both camps have well reasoned arguments in favour of their respective positions and are unlikely to agree on a compromise. Leaving aside the philosophical positions of the parties, it remains the choice of the person suffering from the terminal illness to decide how they want to be treated by their doctors and supported by their families. The only document that legally goes close to this is described as an “Advance Health Directive”. This has also been referred to as a ‘living will’. Although there is a prescribed form for such a document in Queensland, there is no such recognised form in New South Wales. An Advance Health Directive is a document which any person over the age of 18 can complete and sign in order to provide directions to their family and their treating medical practitioners as to how they wish to be treated in the event of certain circumstances. The Queensland prescribed form sets out the person’s wishes in different scenarios in the event of the person:-

It then prescribes whether the person requires resuscitation, assisted ventilation, artificial hydration, artificial nutrition and antibiotics. There is also a provision in the form stating: I request that:Everyone responsible for my care initiate only those measures that are considered necessary to maintain my comfort and dignity, with particular emphasis on the relief of pain. Any treatment that might obstruct my natural dying either not be initiated or be stopped, Unless required for my dignity and comfort as part of my palliative care, no surgical operation is to be performed on me. There is also provision in the form for stating whether you refuse to consent to blood transfusions and other types of surgical invention which are consistent with certain religious beliefs. This form is the closest that you can get to being on the legal side of euthanasia. It is as far as you can legally go to instruct your medical practitioners to treat you when you are suffering from these various types of conditions. It has long been the practice of treating medical practitioners to take patients’ terminal medical conditions into account when prescribing pain relief but the uncertain legal issues must place some pressure upon treating doctors and creates some fear of prosecution. Unfortunately, until the State and Federal Governments can implement laws to legalise euthanasia, families are stuck with the current legal framework which prevents any type of assisted suicide or death no matter what the circumstances of the person involved. It certainly assists the person suffering from a terminal illness if they complete an Advance Health Directive. However, the form needs to be discussed with your treating General Practitioner and witnessed by them. We have found in the past that there are many doctors who advise their patients that it is a waste of time completing the Advance Health Directive form as most treating doctors in hospitals follow a certain path when it comes to treatment and that they have little or no understanding of the contents of an Advance Health Directive. We suggest you discuss these issues with your treating General Practitioner and your Lawyer. You should ensure that you obtain advice from Lawyers who are experienced in this complicated area of law.

Begin Bright opens for business with focus on lifelong learning for kids AN INNOVATIVE new early learning centreBegin Bright which hopes to instill in children a lifelong love of learning is set to open at Kingscliff this month. Begin Bright Kingscliff owner Michelle Webster recently spoke to The Weekly about her business located on the first floor of the Zo Building at Kingscliff which opens Monday, February 28. Mrs Webster said as a parent she knows we want to give our children the best in life and do whatever we can for them to be successful. “We also want our children to be confident and happy,” she said. “At Begin Bright we can achieve all of these goals you have for your children. We make children happy by teaching them in a fun way so they gain confidence and love learning. As a parent you will be happy knowing you have given your child the best possible start to school and to love learning. You will also feel proud when you see your children excel.” Mrs Webster said the facility is a school readiness and primary tutoring centre that runs programs to help children become happier, smarter and more confident so that they can reach their full potential in life. “The programs offered are: 2-3 year olds early learning craft classes; school readiness classes for 3-5 year olds; primary tutoring in individual or small group sessions; school holiday workshops and parent workshops,” she said. “It is a purpose designed centre located on the first floor of the Zo building in Kingscliff. It is brand new, bright, colourful and a fun place to learn. “The investment I have made is I have left my full time job and bought the Begin Bright franchise. With over 20 years teaching experience in the early education field I feel there is a need for this service in our area. I am passionate about giving children the best possible start to learning and education. I am also excited to begin a business venture.” Mrs Webster said she hopes to make children happy and confident and to instill in them a lifelong love of learning. “For children to be successful and to do well in school. For families to make their lives easier by having children who head to school confident and with no anxiety,” she said. “For parents to feel success when their children excel and are happy. Also to be part of the local community

and offer support to those who need it. “In regard to the primary tutoring program the program is designed by teachers and ensures that all the Australian curriculum requirements are met for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. Tutoring lessons are only run by fully qualified and experienced primary school teachers. “The program has been running since 2012 and has seen great results in children’s academic levels. We have seen success by using proven lesson plans and one-on-one/ small group teaching methods. “The school readiness program has been taught in Sydney since 2004 and has been proven to get outstanding results, giving children the knowledge, self confidence, and love of learning that puts them on the path to lifetime success. “The school readiness program teaches children between the ages of 3 and 6 aspects of literacy and numeracy in a fun and exciting way. We use concrete materials and supportive games to keep them interested and to appeal to different learning styles. Through fun characters, stories and rhyme, letter sounds are easily remembered and activities are designed to reinforce number logic. This helps prepare them better for school. “The primary tutoring program caters for all children. Those who are struggling at school, gifted students and those who just need to feel more confident. Through developing individual, personalised learning programs we focus on what each child needs to achieve their goals. “We also consolidate learning during each lesson using a fun game or activity. “We are taking enrollments now. Classes will commence on Monday 27th February.” The school readiness classes run for one hour during school terms on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. There are various classes and times from 9-10 am and 10-11am. Class sizes are limited to 8. Primary school tutoring is available every morning and afternoon before school from 7am and after school up until 6pm and also Saturdays.

fast broadband available to all Australians by 2020,” she said. “The choice of technology is decided area-by-area based on the best solution for the location with several factors considered, including geographical location, existing infrastructure, cost and time to build. “FTTN has been the driving force behind the increased pace of the build, thanks to the very fast pace with which it can be designed and deployed. It is already available to around 1.5 million premises across the country. “All nbn technologies will result in fast and reliable broadband and have upgrade paths to meet future demands.” The NBN Co also provided The Weekly with details from their lab trials of new copper line technology. In a lab trial the new copper acceleration technology, XG.FAST achieved a peak aggregate speed of 8Gbps over 30 metres of twisted-pair copper. According to NBN Co, “This equates to around 900 times faster than the average broadband speed of 8.5Mbps being delivered to Australians in 2016 according to the latest Akamai State of the Internet Report.”

NATIONAL BROADBAND Network Company has sought to address concerns around poor connections to the NBN, which some claim can vary from very fast to very slow internet speeds. Laurie Patton, CEO of Internet Australia contacted The Weekly following a story in the February 9 edition outlining Tweed’s NBN roll-out. “The missing piece of information from the nbn ‘talking points’ is the choice of technology customers in the Tweed will be getting,” he said. “People should ask their RSP (nbn retailer) what technology is being used and what sort of Internet speeds they can expect. “The reality is that most premises will be getting the technically inferior FTTN version that re-uses Telstra’s ageing copper wires. “This means they are not getting the most advanced technology available. In some cases they could find their speeds were better before the change.” Mr Patton also reported concerns about the Sky Muster satellite service saying the service is not delivering the speeds expected. “It’s not just people living in our capital cities that are disappointed with their broadband services. People in the bush have long complained about being left behind in the communications revolution. That’s happening with the NBN too. “The Sky Muster satellite service is not delivering what people want and even people on fixed wireless are complaining. “The NBN fixed line service should be made available to people wherever technically possible – just as we always made sure that nearly everyone had a telephone.” The Weekly spoke with several NBN Co representatives who said they could not comment on political matters, although they acknowledged some of the frustrations being expressed. State Corporate Affairs Advisor for NSW/ACT Marcela Balart said a multi-technology approach was allowing the service to reach all Australians. “This has been possible thanks to nbn’s multi-technology mix approach which uses a range of technologies to make

Last stand before decision on Men’s Shed at Black Rocks IN WHAT could be his last effort to reverse the likely approval of the Pottsville & District Men’s Shed at Black Rocks Sports Field, local koala campaigner Dave Norris has urged Councillors and the community to re-consider the future of the Pottsville koala population before a final vote. Mr Norris sent a series of six emails to The Weekly on Tuesday questioning Cr Reece Byrnes, who recently switched his decision to vote for the Men’s Shed at the Black Rocks site and against suggestions for alternative sites such as the Crown Lands site at Lot 3 Centennial Drive. Mr Norris also invited Professor Steve Philips back last year to comment on the future of the park and the Pottsville koala population which he included in his emails. “As you were aware – one of the strong arguments for revegetation the Black Rocks Sports Field goes to issues of habitat fragmentation, patch size and the associated edge to area ratio,” Professor Phillips said in his response to Mr Norris. “More specifically, the current location of the sports field puts it within a regenerating habitat block, the importance of which is readily apparent as a connectivity hub through which koala recruitment/dispersal to the south-east, southwest and north can theoretically occur. “Yet despite its importance the sports field (including the road reserve) offers an edge of approximately 1600m that is exposed to ongoing disturbance events and the depredations of domestic dogs. “The small koala population that now survives in the habitat surrounding the sports field certainly does not need more disturbance, it needs to be left in peace, nurtured and allowed (or even assisted) to recover to more sustainable levels. “Revegetating the sports field will remove that 1600m edge and create an ecologically important habitat block that will make a meaningful contribution to the recovery needs of the Tweed Coast koala population. “For the preceding reasons I can do no more than wholeheartedly support your idea. I encourage you to pursue your envisaged scenario because it appears to provide one of those win-win scenarios so often missing in terms of demonstrable, long-term sustainable planning outcomes.” Tweed Shire Councillor Reece Byrnes recently announced he will “vote for a Men’s Shed at Black Rocks” ending a stand-off between Mayor Katie Milne and the club that’s lasted more than a year.

The stand-off had lasted so long it’s lead to many residents frustration and endless social media streams calling for an end to the disputed shed site. Member for Tweed Geoff Provest MP and Pottsville & District Men’s Shed president Michael Ryan have both welcomed Cr Byrnes’ decision. “It is great to see Cr Byrnes finally listening to the community on this issue,” Mr Provest said. “The NSW Government has committed over $70,000 in community grants towards the construction of the shed and I look forward to seeing the benefits flow to its members and the wider community. “I would also like to commend the Pottsville Men’s Shed members, particularly the president, Michael Ryan for his tireless efforts in raising both funds and awareness of this project.” In addition, Councillor Byrnes said he has lodged a formal motion calling for a vote on the Men’s Shed to be brought back by Tweed Shire Council. “Labor’s decisive action resolves this long standing community issue and delivers the Men’s Shed for the Pottsville community,” Mr Byrnes said. “The Men’s Shed needs a better location and at this current time Black Rocks is the only and best option. “It is also vitally important that our precious Koalas are protected and we have to work together to ensure that our local Koala habitat is preserved. “Tweed Council and the Pottsville community have repeatedly called on State MP Geoff Provest and his Government to act and provide appropriate public land for the Men’s Shed. “To date, Geoff Provest has failed, he has been unwilling and unable to fix this issue. “For far too long this issue has dragged on causing concern and distress throughout the community. “The uncertainty ends today. Labor will step in and fix this, delivering a Men’s Shed for Pottsville.” READ THE MOTION (provided by Mr Byrnes): 1 – Council rescind its motion dated 17 November 2016 deferring the determination of a licence for the Pottsville & District Men’s Shed. 2 – Council immediately grant a temporary licence to the Pottsville & District Men’s Shed at the Black Rocks Sports Field for the period of 5 years; noting: a) the community support of a Men’s shed at the Black

Rocks site. b) the division and uncertainty this issue has caused in the Pottsville Community over a long period of time. c) the now evident lack of available or cost-effective alternative sites. 3 – Council ensure that the vital Koala corridor at the Black Rocks site is monitored by Council environment officers to ensure the protection of this endangered species.

Push for 15 storeys at Cobaki

THE DEVELOPER of Cobaki Lakes is pushing for a building height increase from three storeys to 15-storeys across four of the 17 precincts within the development. Leda, the developer, submitted a modification (their sixth) to the Cobaki Concept Plan, last year to increase building heights in parts of Precincts 11, 12, 15 and 17 (see picture below). In response the developer was issued a Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) on November 10, 2016. Key issues that Leda has been asked to address include; rationale for proposed amendments, built form and visual aspects, density, airspace, transport and accessibility, environmental and residential amenity, open space, sustainability and biodiversity, flooding and stormwater and utilities. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has raised concerns with the modification and has asked the developer to address airspace planning impacts. In a letter to the Department of Planning and Environment CASA said that, “The proposed location of the buildings is immediately in front (ie towards the airport) a ridge line varying in height 70-90m, with building heights limited under the ridgeline height, and the initial request does not address any airspace planning impacts.”

CASA also noted that the modification must consider the requirements of the Gold Coast Airport’s Lighting Zone Map and the Commonwealth Airports (Protection of Airspace) Regulations. In response to the application a Tweed Shire Council planning officer said they approve the modification “in princples”. “That the “Cobaki site lends itself to an increased maximum building height in the context of its visually contained setting, being isolated from the view of other major adjoining and surrounding properties, through a combination of the natural features of the Cobaki Broadwater, the elevated ridges and vegetated buffers of the north-west, west and south-west parts of the site, and the M1 and Gold Coast Airport uses to the north,” the letter read. “This greatly contained topography minimizes the extent of any visual impacts of higher buildings from adjoining properties. “Again at an officer level, the current proposed modification (Mod 6) is supported in principles. However, without design detail, it is difficult to provide substantial comment. “Notwithstanding, any proposal will need to provide justification for a proposed increase in building height and density.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you support an increase to 15 storeys at Cobaki?

New lifeline for men on the edge

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

YOUNG LOCAL entrepreneur Daniel Wise, 22, is finding his feet in the business world after he purchased the Subway Murwillumbah in December last year. Ambitious and with a lot of knowledge behind him, Daniel started working at subway Murwillumbah at the age of just 14 and had always dreamed of becoming a franchisee and owning his own store. A Murwillumbah High School, Daniel (pictured right) decided to leave school in year 11 and follow his dream at Subway where he became full time supervisor. He showed great potential and quickly became assistant manager for Sharon the previous owner. During his time as the assistant manager, Daniel would make brief trips away to broaden his horizons only to return to Subway Murwillumbah once more. Thanks to the support of his parents and two brothers as well as the previous owner Sharon, he wakes up and fulfils his dream every day. “I would like to thank the staff that have shown such great support and loyalty to the business and to me as the new

Murwillumbah Early Education Centre opens THE GRAND opening of Murwillumbah Early Education Centre (MEEC) located at 55 Commercial Road, took place on Monday, February 13. The centre has been cleverly created from a beautiful old Queenslander originally built in 1907. The building had been lovingly restored, keeping many of its original features including VJ walls, hardwood floors, chandeliers and corrugated iron ceilings. “The business is locally owned and operated ensuring a home away from home feel. MEEC is the closest centre to town situated only one block from Coles. And being on the bus routes from our local schools, offers before and after school care as well. MEEC had an established reputation through its sister centre Toddle Inn Early Education Centre on Joshua Street. “With our continued collaboration we know our centres will provide the very best in education and care for our local children,” Renae Van Eck, the new MEEC Director said. “This beautiful centre has attracted high quality staff which includes an Early Childhood Teacher who will deliver our Preschool education program following the National Curriculum and The Early Years Learning Framework

(EYLF).” Renae said children in the Babies, Toddler and Preschool Rooms will experience an educational program that is tailored to meet their individual needs and interests. “All of our programs will cover the key learning areas of mathematics, literacy, dramatic play, science, language and sensory appreciation,” she said. “Learning will occur naturally through our play based curriculum with children gaining an understanding of their place in the world in a safe, nurturing and playful environment. Director Renae is waiting to welcome children from our local community to join MEEC, where they will thrive. The opening hours of Murwillumbah Early Education Centre: 6.30am-6.30pm, 52 weeks a year and being on the school bus routes ensures that parents have the best possible care for both their preschool children and school aged siblings as well. For more information visit the centre at 55 Commercial Road, Corner Prince Street, Murwillumbah or phone: 6672 5599, email: meec@childcaremurwillumbah.com.au

Wintersun 2.0 car show in preparations EVENT ORGANISERS for Wintersun 2.0 were in Murwillumbah this week drumming up support, sponsors and getting ready for one of the biggest car show events to reach the Tweed Valley in more than 10 years. Wintersun 2.0 was confirmed last month for Murwillumbah and will take place on June 2-5 and it could be here to stay according to organisers Aces and Eights Event Management. The Weekly recently caught up with Wintersun 2.0 organiser Steve Bowman and John Valenti who said the event would see a return of the higest quality car shows in the region. Mr Valenti said he was in discussions with Tweed Shire Council that could see the event someday hosted in Murwillumbah’s main street. “This 2017 event is a proof of concept. As we move through the next few years we hope (with Council cooperation) to involve more of the Murwillumbah and surrounding community and maybe even present the show in Murwillumbah’s main street,” he said. Mr Bowman said he has a strong desire to keep the event in the Tweed and heaped praise on the local communities. “The Tweed is a beautiful area and everyone we’ve dealt with has been friendly and very supportive. I can see a long and prosperous future for the event and the area,” he said. “We hope the event will run in Murwillumbah indefinitely. Dates for the first event are June 2 to June 5 and future events will be around the same time of year.” Mr Bowman said his hopes the event will attract a range of different autos and people with favourable weather. “Great weather and a good crowd. More diversity and the expansion of the event into the streets Murwillumbah to enhance the economic benefit the local traders,” he said. “All cars are welcome up to the 1978 cut-off,” he said. “Later model classics are by invitation. We are expecting a large turnout of Hot Rods, Classics, Customs and Muscle cars and classic and modified motorcycles such as Cafe Racers, Bobbers and Classic Choppers. Music will by a mix of Rockabilly, Blues, Country and Rock and Roll.” For motoring enthusiasts, how can they get involved? “If they have a pre-1978 vehicle bring it along. Entry forms will be available in the next couple of weeks via the web site and Facebook. This is a friendly family event so any car/bike enthusiasts don’t currently own a classic vehicle are welcome to come along as spectators.”

Real Estate Institute backs longer tenancies for NSW THE REAL Estate Institute of NSW has recommended a new model for fixed term tenancies agreements of up to five years in what it says is a “response to recommended changes as part of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 statutory review”. The submission was prepared in consultation with REINSW’s Property Management Chapter committee. NSW Fair Trading put together its statutory review of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 in June 2016. Currently the act defines long-term tenancies as periods of 20 years or more. In a bid to encourage longer fixed term tenancies, recommendation 16 of the review, has suggested amending section 20 to reduce this to five years.

REINSW’s proposed model for longer fixed term tenancies: REINSW said it envisaged a proposed five-year agreement would have no impact on the current standard form residential tenancy agreement and would be a stand-alone agreement. However, it says a bigger incentive for landlords to enter into a five year lease would be to remove the registration obligation and the requirement to pay registration fees. As a result REINSW recommends that section 53 of the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW) (RPA Act) is amended to require registration of a lease if it has a term of more than five years, as opposed to three years. REINSW CEO Tim McKibbin said: “If landlords are not required to pay registration fees for registering a five-year lease, then they will be encouraged to use these longer-term leases.” If the recommendation above is not implemented, REINSW proposes that residential leases with a term exceeding five years should be exempt from the registration requirement that currently exists in section 53 of the RPA Act.” “Another motivation for landlords to use five-year leases would be to enable them to stipulate terms and conditions that are prohibited or not included in the current standard form residential tenancy agreement.” REINSW recommends a prescribed, but not mandatory, five-year lease which includes terms incentivising landlords to use that lease as opposed to the standard form residential tenancy agreement. These terms should include, but would not be limited to: • The tenant being responsible for making certain repairs (for example, to door handles or damage from the use of hot plates on stoves). • The tenant being responsible for repairing damage from minor alterations (for instance, drilling into walls, tiles, etc). • A bond top-up option. • The inclusion of a break fee provision whereby the break fee is a higher amount than that in the standard form residential tenancy agreement because the balance of the term is likely to be longer. • Obligations on the tenant to reimburse the landlord for any call out fees where the tenant

fails to provide access to the premises for safety inspections (e.g. smoke alarms). • Obligations on the tenant to advise the landlord immediately if there is an issue with a safety matter on the premises (e.g. smoke alarms, pool fences or window locks). • Obligations on the tenant not to interfere with safety installations on the premises (e.g. smoke alarms, pool fences or window locks). • The insertion of an additional term prohibiting smoking. • The inclusion of a provision to deal with the prevention of mould by the tenant. • The inclusion of a provision that the tenant is to pay for any pest control required after the first 90 days of the commencement of the tenant. • The option available under the previous residential tenancies legislation whereby the landlord and tenant could agree on the timing and responsibility for payment of carpet cleaning. • The ability for the landlord to require a higher bond in respect of furnished premises or where pets are kept on the premises. • The inclusion of a provision that the tenant will have the carpet professionally cleaned and have the property fumigated in leases where the keeping of pets is permitted (currently the lease requires the tenant to either professionally clean the carpet or fumigate if pets are permitted, however, REINSW believes it should offer both). • The optional ability to provide for servicing of residential premises (e.g. cleaning). •The insertion of a holding over clause in the operative provisions of the agreement rather than in the motes where it currently sits..

Fire safety reforms on the cards for NSW buildings to fire proof for future use NSW BUILDINGS could soon be safer from potential fire under proposed reforms aimed at improving fire safety standards. The NSW Government has released a draft regulation in response to a recent Statutory Review of the Building Professionals Act 2005. It would apply to buildings including multi-unit residential, commercial, retail, industrial, health care and public-assembly structures. One of the proposals is for independent random audits of highrisk residential buildings by personnel from Fire and Rescue NSW.

Minister Victor Dominello said, “Appropriate fire protection measures in buildings are crucial to ensuring life safety. “These reforms will help to boost standards in the building industry and could potentially save lives. “NSW is experiencing a construction boom and we need modern laws that strengthen fire safety throughout the building process. “The reforms will aim to ensure that people designing and checking fire safety systems have the necessary skills and competencies.”

MARIA LUCAS is a long-term Tumbulgum resident who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. In June 2014, Maria (49) had a collapsed lung caused by her condition. On December 30, 2014, Maria gratefully received a double lung transplant. One week after her surgery, Maria’s new left lung was removed due to medical complications. Before and after her surgery, Maria came close to losing her battle from Cystic Fibrosis, but she held on in the hope that a successful transplant donor would be found and she would regain her health and a better quality of life. Maria’s recovery was very slow and she remained in hospital for 5 months recuperating. She is eternally grateful to her donor family for their gift and Maria is making the most of her second chance at life. Maria will be competing in the 21st Summer ‘World Transplant Games’ for Australia. These inspirational Games will be held in the beautiful Mediterranean port city of Málaga in Spain from Sunday 25 June – Sunday 02 July, 2017. The competitors in the games are unique in that each one of them is alive and well because of a successful organ transplant. Maria’s purpose in competing is to visibly demonstrate the benefits of successful organ transplantation, work to increase public awareness of its success and thereby increase organ donation rates, as well as promote the full rehabilitation and wellbeing of participants. Although Maria has never been a ‘sporty’ person, she took up ‘Table Tennis’ as part of her rehabilitation regime. Playing sport is out of Maria’s comfort zone, however she feels she owes her donor to embrace the precious gift of life that she has received. Each Monday, Maria trains at the Uniting Church Hall at Kingscliff where she is well supported in her quest. Maria will compete in both single and mixed fixtures in Spain. She is determined to win; practicing hard and very happy with her progress. In the past, Maria has worked at the Tumbulgum School as a Teachers Aid and was involved in ‘The Story Dogs’ not-forprofit organisation literacy program. ‘Story Dogs’ is based on the successful American literacy program: Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) which was launched in 1999 in Utah, USA, as the first comprehensive literacy program built around the appealing idea of children and young adolescents reading to dogs.

myself and my brother Arthur. Q. Are you still in the recording process? Were still putting final touches to recording we’ve got a few more to record. We’ve recorded 4 songs and have 4 more to record. Q. You’ve played in a few well known Australian bands? Yes the Mighty Guys, Glenn A Baker’s band in the eighties. We had a modicum of a hit called Be Cool Be Smart which was written for me as a bit of comic relief we had a guy from UK Squeeze come out from England. We met him in a hotel room in Kings Cross and he had a listen to the track liked it and agreed to re mix it. The song was released and ABC used to play it every morning. My sister used to listen to it on her way to work every day. Lots of people heard it. We played it on Countdown. That band had done every tv show in Australia, the most written up band in Australia at that time. Before that I was in the Ferrets who also had a hit called Don’t Fall in Love, and then we had a follow up called Janie May released in 1977. Then we recorded an album Dreams of Love and it was really great.

EUROPEAN FILMS, AGAIN…!

A new batch of great European movies is coming to town..! Since we are in Oscars’ season, the first film that needs mentioning is TONI ERDMANN, which several film critics have hailed as THE best film of the year – it is in fact nominated in the Best Picture category of the Academy Awards. The story of a dysfunctional relationship between an outrageous father who creates an alter ego to meddle in the life of his estranged hard working daughter promises to be a funny and yet thoughtprovoking delight. Coming from Italy is PERFECT STRANGERS, the multiaward winning bitter-sweet comedy which has been such a resounding success that Hollywood has bought the remake rights for it – very unusual, as normally remake rights go the opposite way. The poignancy of the film is that it underlines the power that today’s communication technology has on ordinary lives, in this case the ones of seven long-time friends that jokingly decide to share with each other the content of every text message they receive, with disastrous consequences… ROSALIE BLUM is a witty and ingeniously crafted romantic comedy from France. It tells the story of the random, lifechanging encounter between Vincent - a hairdresser whose life rotates around his job, his cousin, his cat and his invasive mother - and a mysterious and lonely woman, Rosalie, whom Vincent is convinced he has already met somewhere… So there is plenty of thought-provoking laughter in store for those moviegoers who enjoy a little multicultural flavour.

HI EVERYONE, welcome to another week of Local Sounds. There has been a recent explosion in the rock ‘n roll dance scene on the far north coast – with people frequently travelling for miles to dance to these types of bands. This week I caught up Phil Eizenberg the guitar and amp doctor at Tweed Creative Studios to talk about his very popular band PPR Express. Q. How long has the band been established? We have been playing as PPR Express for a year, the band was originally playing together as the Chevrolets one of Australia’s leading Rock’n’Roll bands until the lead singer Bernie Hutton was taken by illness and passed away. That was the end of the Chevrolets and the beginning of PPR Express. So Peter Hall and I decided to stay together and Peter knew Roger who had the same high voice as Bernie so the repertoire was virtually the same. Q. Do you have a regular following? Yes we have, the Gold Coast Rock ‘n Roll dance clubs like us very much. Wherever we play they come and support us, they hit the dance floor and they stay on the dance floor for every set. It’s just terrific. It’s great to see people in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and even 80’s dancing, and I see them as teenagers when the music was first started and they’re still there. They have aged but the music hasn’t and their feeling for the music hasn’t, which is interesting. They remember every song they sing all the words and they dance energetically and its great and I love playing for them. And we just play really good dance music. From the Beatles to The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Herman’s Hermits, The Shadows and David Bowie, Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly, all the great groups. Plus we write our own material. So were now really proud to present our new song Get a Wriggle On written by

THE CREATIVE Caldera team have launched a forum for Tweed creatives to build on creative ideas, promote creative businesses and undertake professional development. The forum will take place at The Citadel, Queen Street, Murwillumbah, on Thursday February 23, to “conjure, collaborate and connect” by Creative Caldera. Creative Caldera President Natascha Wernick said the forum will be an informal, dynamic and interactive meeting for Creative Caldera current and (want to be) new members to find out how they plan to support creatives and the creative industries in the Tweed Region. Topics for the night include: a calendar of professional development opportunities especially for creatives, how to use Creative Caldera to promote your business, and how to launch creative ideas and get support. “Creative Caldera, is a not-for-profit organisation for coordination and creative industries development, conducted the Tweed Shire Creative Industries Survey in 2015 and released a report and action plan in 2016,” Ms Wernick said. “The team has been meeting with stakeholders including TAFE, Arts Northern Rivers, Tweed Shire Council representatives, NORTEC, Destination Tweed and other creative industry representatives and formed a steering committee for the implementation plan.

“It is a great show of support for the creatives in the Tweed Shire, and for our mission, that the stakeholders are coming together. “Creative Caldera is a volunteer team, and to make this plan work it is essential that the stakeholders are involved and that we all own it as a community.” This is the first of a series of arts networking events for creatives, designed to inform, build opportunities and identify what the creatives’ need to establish sustainable and viable businesses. “When our creatives are thriving, we, as a whole community, become a more vibrant, happy and healthy which will in turn attract tourists to come to experience and shop in our towns and villages,” Ms Wernick said Creative Caldera is made up of a community of friendly artists: painters, filmmakers, designers, photographers, musicians, jewellers, actors, fashionistas, creative web coders and all the inter-disciplines in between that can’t be categorised by any single category. Membership is for everyone and is a main income generator for the organisation, it is $15 and will be available to purchase on the night. For more information please go to the www. creativecaldera.com.au. RSVPs are needed for seating. The event is free, BYO plate of food, all welcome.

Young cancer survivor joins Relay For Life CANCER SURVIVOR Niamh Sullivan will join the Tweed Valley Relay For Life on March 11-12 to honour those she has met along her cancer journey and for those who can no longer relay themselves. This year’s Relay For Life will take place at the Cudgen Leagues Club, Kingscliff from 3pm. Niamh was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the age of 12 and shared her remarkable story of survival. “As a cancer survivor I feel I have a renewed perspective

on life, taking every day as it comes and valuing my health and loved ones,” she said. Niamh’s cancer journey began on her last day of primary school after a tumour was found on her lungs. “They had to bring in international doctors to try and fix the girl with no lungs after chest x-rays found a tumour the size of a grapefruit on my thymus,” Niamh said. “I was experiencing shortness of breath and I kept passing out because it was crushing my windpipes. After this I went into a coma for 10 days and woke up on Christmas Day to my family, but I didn’t really know what was happening at the time. “It was a slow process from then and it was very isolating, I even missed starting high school with my friends.” While Niamh’s treatment is complete, she still travels to Sydney for regular check-ups with her specialists while some of the side effects remain. “Because of what I have been through, I now experience short term memory loss, concentration issues, thyroid issues and endometriosis,” she said. This hasn’t stopped Niamh from completing high school and going on to study media at university. “I have decided to join Tweed Valley Relay For Life this year as I know the importance of Cancer Council NSW and the massive difference they can make to a cancer journey,” she said. “During my time in hospital the CCNSW Hospital Volunteers supported my family, and gave them someone to talk to openly about what was going on.” The Tweed Valley Relay For Life is a space for the community to unite in the fight against cancer. The vital funds raised at Relay support local services such as the Cancer Council Information Service at The Tweed Hospital which provides nurses with the support to assist up to 200 patients from the Far North Coast. Cancer Council NSW is 97 per cent community funded and relies on the support of the community to continue funding ground breaking research and provide community services to ensure no one needs to face cancer alone. “It’s important to get involved in any way you can as it is such a prevalent cause, and you don’t know when it will happen to you, your family or friends,” Niamh said. Join Niamh and make a difference to local people affected by cancer at this year’s Tweed Valley Relay for Life – visit: www.relayforlife.org.au/tweed – or for more information phone: 1300 65 65 85.

last week’s sudoku solutions

If you’re looking for something smaller, the upper reaches of the Tweed and Cobaki Broadwater have been the best areas for Whiting. For boaties, a GPS trolling electric motor is a great addition and now available for $1,150! Offshore has been quieter – still Mackerel and GTs around 9 Mile. The southern Gold Coast reefs have seen small Black Marlin with Squire further out. The best lures for Mackerel are still Halco Laser Pro RedHead and Rapala X-Rap Green Gold, although Ice Cream lures are awesome! All are available at Tweed Tackle & Marine.

BULL SHARKS have been giving more than a few fishos some good challenges – mainly off the beaches. Use a reel with drag power - Santiago is a good overhead, and Azores, Slammer IIIs and Cabos are all suitable Spin reels. Spool up with at least 30lb line - some have been using 100lb plus! Setting a berley trail is worth the effort. Large baits, for example whole mullet, will attract the sharks.

Hot Water

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

A sacrificial anode is a vital part of your water system, and having it inspected can be the difference between an efficiently working system and a costly replacement. Manufacturers recommend that you maintain the anode in your system in order to prevent damage from rust + corrosion. THE ANODE IN YOUR SYSTEM SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO CORRODE AWAY, WHATEVER TYPE OR BRAND OF SYSTEM YOU HAVE SOLAR, ELECTRIC, GAS OR HEAT PUMPS FOR A LIMITED TIME we will check your anode in the Tweed & Gold Coast area FREE OF CHARGE. “REMEMBER YOU CAN’T LOSE, NO ANODE REPLACEMENT NO CHARGE” Comes with a 5 year warranty ~ Make your Hot Water System last for 30 years!

“Locals Supporting Locals”

First 2017 meeting for the Tweed Experiences Network TWEED TOURISM operators came out to party for the first Tweed Experiences Networking Event for 2017 hosted by Mount Warning Tours - Spirit of Wollumbin on Monday, February 12. The boat trip from Chinderah to Murwillumbah was extremely well coordinated with a bus pick up from Murwillumbah carrying more than 40 local business owners and operators. Once aboard the Spirit of Wollumbin is was quickly down to networking and introductions before the beer, wine and nibbles started to flow. Beers on board were supplied by Stone & Wood with a friendly staff member eager to hand out a range of the delicious craft beer range. The cruise continued with a presentation Greg at Murwillumbah Showgrounds, who gave the audience an up-to-date report into the showgrounds new camping offer. Greg said the showgrounds is starting to see some success from the new camping sites to encouraging visitors to visit the many wonders across the Tweed. Another guest speaker included Martin Rees from Rees International who offered some timely advice for engaging what he said was the rapidly growing Chinese tourism market. Mr Rees said the days of travel and tour buses loaded with Chinese tourists is “long over”. “These days’ Chinese visitors are hungry for the natural experiences and the Tweed is well placed to attract that attention,” he said. Mr Rees said the Chinese audience use a social media platforms such as Weibo and PengYou, which is the equivalent of Twitter and Facebook. “It’s through these Chinese networks that tourism operators can build relationships and encourage tourism to the Tweed,” he said. Live music was provided by Chana and friends from Tweed Creative Studios.

Bowls Notes

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals

with Judy Tuckey

Cabarita Sub Clubs Challenge players

Cabarita Beach Bowls and Sports Club together for their Annual Challenge AS IS said, clubs that play together stay together, and Cabarita Beach Bowls and Sports Club is no exception. Sunday morning saw the sub clubs come together for their Annual challenge. Sides of 12 players each from the Bowls, Golf, Fishing and Cricket Clubs were entered in a fun tournament formatted on 3 games of 7 ends. Whilst the inaugural contest was conducted almost two decades ago, and then promptly went into limbo, Vice President Barry Sheppard reinvented the challenge this year, much to the delight of members. Steamy hot conditions didn’t deter the players one bit as they set about enjoying a great morning of bowls. The Bowlers took out top honours after surviving a protest from the Golfers. Next challenge is said to be on the golf links at Chinderah to appease the defeated Golfers. Club championships around the District are now on the

agenda as the year’s activities begin to unwind. Kingscliff men have finalised their Open and B Grade Triples with Michael Turner (Skip), Paul Watson and Steve Massey being the victors in the Open final relegating Peter Murphy (Skip), Ros Julius and Vic Lewis to the runners-up position. B Grade Triples and Noel Dunstone (Skip), Peter Tindale and Bernard Swift collected top honours after defeating T. Elton (S), Graham Lonsdale and Stephen Langham. Open Fours Championship final at Cabarita between Dave Crow (S), Brian Kent, Doug Moir, Bob Gormly and John Turner (S), Darren Black, Jim Leijen and Greg Goode developed into a closely fought battle. Team Turner held a narrow lead for most of the game but a concerted effort from Crow and Co. resulted in a change of leadership with Dave and his lads keeping control and taking the game with a minor surplus. Cudgen Leagues’ Men’s Major Fours final produced a

classic struggle between two very evenly matched teams as Jim Gibson (S), Col Lacey, Les Browning and Brien Murray were duelling with Barry Henry (S), Harry Highfield, Tommy Grimes and Dave Bennett for the top spot. Tight scoring from the beginning, combined with superb bowling from all contestants, gave no indication as to which way the game would go in this very close encounter. However, team Henry was able to snatch a skinny lead on the sixteenth end, and holding on gamely, went on to close the game with a narrow margin. CORRECTION: Last week’s item in relation to the District Reserve Triples semis stated Steve Robson (S), Graeme Davis and Bob Cooke as being from Byron Bay when, in fact, these fine bowlers are Burringbar M.B.C. Members. My apologies to team Robson. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

Young Cabarita Beach ripper to take on Sydney Grom Competition CABARITA BEACH local Dane Pullinger, 16, will dual it out at the birthplace of Australian surfing against 36 of the nation’s top up and coming groms, when he competes in the Australian Open of Surfing (AOS) Sydney Grom Challenge at Manly beach on February 25-26. The AOS Sydney Grom Challenge is part of the 2017 Australian Open of Surfing, which is Australia’s biggest lifestyle and action sports festival, welcoming 300 of the world’s top athletes across surf, BMX and sport – including world surfing champion Tyler Wright and Aussie surfing superstar Julian Wilson.

Between the Flags

Cudgen Headland SLSC – Keith Kennedy

SURF CONDITIONS last weekend not the best and too rough for the juniors who took their water activities to Cudgen Creek. Salt Juniors also made use of the ideal conditions there. The past few weekends have had our patrols treat many blue bottle stings, a few preventative actions taken and one rescue recorded. One incident require ambulance transport. Dredging of Cudgen Creek continues with sand being pumped to the southern end of the beach closer to the creek wall. Our thanks to the Old Boys Association for their latest donation to assist with competition expenses and to purchase a 20 foot container, which is to be used as storage space which is a premium for our craft competitors, many

who have to transport home their boards and skis after training. The club is also looking ahead to next season with transport of gear to the Australian Titles in Perth and World in Adelaide. This Sunday the Branch Championships will be conducted at Byron Bay where we hope to replicate the team efforts in winning the N.S.W. Country point score. Report time is 8.30 am for a 9 am start. The following weekend is the start of the 2017 N.S.W. Championships at Swansea-Belmont.

WICKET TO WICKET

Hooker League Update

Centuries to Caleb Ziebell and Tait Burns have put Cudgen 335 in a strong position in their two day game against Ballina Bears at Reg Dalton. Harry Gray and Ryan Lahrs made their debuts for the Hornets. Meanwhile an unbeaten 70 from Ryan McCloy with good support from Adam Rogers 60 and Jayden Hoare 56 helped Pottsville make 238. The Pelicans will be chasing early wickets with Tintenbar East Ballina resuming on 2/56.

Coastal League Update

Cudgen 6/189 returned to form with an excellent win over leaders Terranora 138. Bowlers Mitchell Anderson 4/13 and Parker Bryant 2/33 took vital wickets in the Hornets return to form. Batsmen Heath Wilson 71 continued his good season form

with good support from Dylan Stoddart who remained unbeaten on 48. At Rabjones Oval, Mullumbimby Brunswick 5/214 had a last over win over Murwillumbah who set a total 8/211. The loss is a crucial one for the Panthers who now sit in 6th spot with finals positions up for grabs. The Panthers were well served by Peter Hall 71 and fast bowler Alex Killorn who took 3/19 off his allotted eight overs. With three weeks of regular games remaining Murwillumbah travel to Alstonville in a must win game, Cudgen travel to play Ballina Bears whilst Pottsville and Terranora host Byron Bay and Mullumbimby Brunswick respectively.

Sh ting Hoops WOMEN’S LEAGUE

Under thankfully cooler conditions, Women’s League games continued on Monday night. Game 1 saw the seemingly unstoppable Young Guns up against the KLAS Hornets. This was going to be a tight game, and the 42-26 win for Young Guns indicated that these girls have some strong opposition building. Game 2 and in a very low scoring encounter, Bandits snuck home over Blazers 8-7! Not sure if this a record low score, but must be close. And in the final game, another tight contest ensued with Steelers just having the edge over Purple 36-34. AUSSIE HOOPS (5-10 years) On Monday our newest and youngest champions started their introduction to Basketball in our widely acclaimed Aussie Hoops program. Coach Aaron showed them many of the basics of basketball which all thoroughly enjoyed, including the parents. It’s not only fantastic to see so many new faces this term, but those who have been with us previously and returned and a couple young stars who have

Junior Representative Games

The Tweed Valley will be running Under 11, 13 and 15 representative sides in the upcoming Far North Coast Interdistrict 1 day series over the next month. Games commence this Sunday from 9am in various locations around the Northern Rivers. The Under 19’s Tweed side take on Ballina this Sunday at Rabjones Oval from 10am after Casino forfeited their first up game. The Ballina side 7/111 had an excellent win over a strong Lismore outfit 109 in a low scoring game at Fripp Oval last Sunday which was played in sweltering conditions.

YOUTH LEAGUE (11-16 years)

Not a day goes by where I do not receive at least 2 calls from parents asking about our Youth League. I can confidently say that we provide the highest quality coaching and guidance for this age group and it is evident in the young players, girls and boys, who were with us in 2016. This coaching will continue in 2017 as we move into Youth League competition play. We are NOT about leaving kids on the bench, everyone gets even game time regardless of skill or development level. We commence each Wednesday at 4pm. Cost is just $6 per week. For further details, contact me on 0448 883845.

MEN’S LEAGUE

With round 1 of the 2017 due to commence on Valentines Day, it was decided to postpone the new season until next Tuesday, 21 February. We felt that it was not worth the potential arguments between players and their partners! At Murwillumbah Basketball, we care! We currently have 4 confirmed teams for Men’s League. It

the under 12’s both Cudgen Stingers and Murwillumbah Panthers consolidated their top four positions with solid wins. Stablemates Murwillumbah Panthers and the Roar side will play a Twilight game this Friday at Rabjones Oval from 4.30pm. In the Under 14’s Cudgen 8/155 were too good for Murwillumbah 4/112. Hornet’s all-rounder Harvey Moase who is pictured bowling to Jaiden Larrescy was among the side’s best. Pottsville off the back of Bye maintains their top four position. In the Under 16’s Murwillumbah slipped out of the top four with a loss to leader Tintenbar East Ballina. The side has a must win game against Alstonville away to have any chance of a finals spot. Have a great week SteveT

is no too late to nominate a side, nor for individual players to join us. We have a couple players looking for a team, so we can easily form a new side. If you are even mildly interested, call me, 0448 883845. It is social, with a competitive edge.
