Fire quickly destroyed two homes at the Gateway Lifestyle Tweed Shores Caravan Park.

TWO HOMES were destroyed by fire at the Gateway Lifestyle Tweed Shores caravan park at about 7am on Saturday, March 3. No one was injured in the fire, however, one elderly man is undergoing further assessment at hospital and is in a stable condition. It is not understood how the fire started, however, it is known that the fire started in one of the houses and spread to the second. The two properties are located at the back of the park and despite the fire moving quickly, all were able to evacuate and no further homes were damaged. A Gateway Lifestyle Tweed Shores resident told The Weekly that “fortunately everyone was okay” and

said that insurance would cover the damages. “It’s come as a shock especially so near to one year since the floods, it’s tough for some of the residents,” he said. “Fortunately, everyone’s okay and the fire was contained.” In an official statement, Gateway Lifestyle Tweed Shores said the fire started early on Saturday after a community home caught fire. “The elderly resident was rescued by his neighbour, who consequently suffered minor burns,” the statement reads. “Both residents have been treated at The Tweed Hospital, where one of them remains in care in a stable condition.

“Two homes were significantly damaged, and several others impacted by the smoke and heat as a consequence. “The team at Gateway Lifestyle would like to extend our gratitude to those that raised the alarm, and in particular the neighbours who bravely assisted each other during the incident. “We will be working with all residents of the community to ensure they have suitable accommodation for the period in which some homes may require rehabilitation. “The impacted area has been securely fenced off until such time as repairs are made and the area is safe to access. “Our community manager will be available for residents’ questions and assistance during this time.”

A HORROR accident on Cudgen Road on Sunday, March 4, has left Casuarina woman Maria Diaz Flores, 24, fighting for her life in a serious condition at Gold Coast University Hospital. Maria’s car, a Subaru wagon, is believed to have slid off Cudgen Road, west of Plantation Road, while travelling east around 1.30am. Her car collided with a tree, trapping her inside the vehicle for almost one hour. Tweed Police were first on the scene before the Tweed District Rescue Squad along with NSW Ambulance and the NSW Rural Fire Service used the jaws of life to free Maria, before she was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital. The Weekly spoke to the Gold Coast University Hospital media unit who said Maria remains in a “serious condition” and was no longer in a critical condition. Meanwhile, friends of Maria, through Fins Restaurant at Kingscliff, where she has worked for the past five years have organised a fundraiser via youcaring.com calling for donations to assist with her lengthy recovery. “Maria was involved in a terrible car accident on the 4th [of] March,” the youcaring page description reads. “She is in a critical [now serious] condition in hospital, currently in a coma with swelling of the brain. It will be a long journey to recovery. “This fundraiser is 100 per cent for Maria. It will also be assisting her family (from Mexico) to stay by her side.” Residents near the crash ran to Maria’s aid and said they were shocked by the wreckage. “It was quick. A quick skid and loud bang! [I] Said to Chris come on! Got to incident with only our torches, thongs and

School zone unnecessary

I refer to Belinda Grace and Ian Jefferies’ letters on the 40km/h speed zone on Tyalgum Road. As was correctly stated this is nothing more than a speed trap for the police. Having lived at Tyalgum for 10 years and never seeing a child or a school student at or near this area one can only deduce that this is only advertising the caring nature of the Hare Krishna community. No children are in danger of being hurt by a car if the 40km/h zone was removed, only the ego of the Hare Krishna community. Garry and Rosemary Privett, Tyalgum

What a waste

$400 million to build a tram track to Tweed City from Qld. Well Geoff you have surpassed everything with this. You and your National Party have definitely lost the plot, time to go. When your lot can’t find $40 million to get our rail back which would benefit the Tweed much better. Gordon Lee, Tweed Heads

Fear or favour

Last weeks letter from Trevor White of the Tweed Water Alliance highlighted some of the failings of the Tweed Shire Council officers in their appraisal of the water extraction application in Uki. It was only his last minute presentation to the Council that virtually forced the Council to postpone a decision on the application due to a perceived lack of diligence by the staff. This reappraisal is still ongoing. My own submissions to the Council were totally disregarded and dismissed altogether. Subsequently my objections and concerns about increased costs and frequency of road degradation, road safety issues, and access of these heavy trucks entering and exiting Rowlands Creek Road have been validated by the Council. Why were these issues not addressed initially? This is a

question that will have to be asked at a later date when the application is finalised. Many people want answers. However without doubt another major concern was raised in his letter. The revelation that an email exists showing that the staff were concerned about possible legal action if the application was refused is alarming. Council staff should carry out their work and offer their advice to Councillors “without fear or favour” . The thought that a staff member might be influenced by the thought of litigation is appalling. Any member that does so should be reprimanded and enlightened as to their responsibilities. Because an applicant has enough wealth to appeal through the courts is of no concern to the staff. They are there purely to advise the Councillors in an unbiased manner. Nothing more nothing less. That is without “fear or favour”. A few months ago some Councillors bemoaned the fact that a Council decision that went against them would result in legal action at a cost to the Council. Stating that the Council was in fact wasting ratepayers money. They did not say this when they opposed a motion that resulted in legal action. At the time I put this down to sour grapes. They lost and so they had to have a go at someone. In fact they were condemning themselves with their own words. They more than the Council staff should carry out their duty as our representatives “without fear or favour”. If any Councillor makes a decision other than what is right for the shire, its people and environment, then they should resign. Because a wealthy applicant wants something done is no reason to approve it. Not the Australian way and should not be the way of the Councillors and staff of the Council. Gwyn Hooper, Uki

More return sites needed

As suggested in your recent write up (TVW March 1) I am writing to suggest a drop point for a return and earn to go. I’ve always heard people saying the ones in Chinderah and Kingscliff are full and how annoying it is. If we had one in Murwillumbah this could stop those ones further north like Chinderah filling up so fast. I am not really sure where exactly would be suitable, maybe at the local Murwillumbah IGA and McDonald’s? I do hope we get another drop point with the demand there is and I know Murwillumbah is a very eco friendly conscious town in itself so many people would be driving up

Could Council Return and Earn

Instead of spending huge amounts on the return and earn vending machines, perhaps the Council could have some dedicated bins at the tip and a worker with either cash or a book of vouchers. Jean Harris, Murwillumbah

Rifle correction

The rifle presented to the 225 Cadet Unit is indeed interesting but it is not a WWII vintage weapon. Without closer examination I could not be sure but is certainly WWI or earlier. I would suggest it is likely to be a Lee Metford .303 rifle issued prior to the SMLE or short magazine lee Enfield in the same calibre. If it is a Lee Metford it could date back to the Boer War, antique indeed. Ap o l og i e s t o a l l i f I h ave misinterpreted your story. James MacLachlan, ex trooper

Dr Betty tribute

It was with great sadness that the Murwillumbah Croquet Club heard of Dr Betty Mark’s death. Dr Betty was a Patron of our club for many years. After retiring she attended some of our special events, the last one being the club’s 90th birthday held in late August last year. The club appreciated the many years of her support both financially and in person especially at our Christmas lunches. Murwillumbah has certainly lost an icon. P h y l l B e h r e n s, S e c r e t a r y Murwillumbah Croquet Club

A legend of the Tweed Valley

Dr Betty Marks, affectionately known as “Doc Betty” was a legend, God’s gift to the Tweed Valley and probably far beyond. Long before my time on the Tweed she was the Tree family doctor. The care given to my in-laws Fred and Millie Tree was exceptional. Dr Betty would just drop in to see them, because she was in the area and made sure they were okay. Nan Tree (Millie) also received many invitations for dinner at Dr Betty’s home. I’m sure there would have been many other residents who were treated with the same amount of caring.

Dr Betty’s care for her patients went far beyond the duty of care. In 1966, during one of our Christmas home visits to Brian’s parents, Brian became very ill with a recurring problem causing extreme pain. Within two days Dr Betty had him admitted to the Princess Alexandria hospital in Brisbane under the care of Dr Wilson, a leading kidney specialist in Australia. After Dr Betty’s diagnosis of Brian, her comment was, “Who are these horse doctors who diagnosed your condition as a spinal problem?” In 1972, again on a Christmas visit home, we took our seven-monthold baby son to Dr Betty, we were desperate for an answer. She was so concerned about the seriousness of the problem that she contacted a paediatrician who was on his Christmas break. He in turn took time out to make the time to see us. This consultation was able to rule out most of the nasties and really was able to set the ball rolling in the direction that was needed to solve the problem. Again, Dr Betty commented, “Who are these doctors, are they quacks or what?” I know that a very stern and too the point letter was written to those referred to. There were numerous occasions over the years when I would need migraine injections and my boys would be given instructions, “Take your mum home and tuck her into bed.” There are so many stories that my family, extended members of the Tree family and so many other families could share about this remarkable woman. We all have so much to thank her for. They say angels come in various forms, however, the people in the Tweed Valley are so fortunate that our angel came in the form of Dr Betty Marks.

Rail Trail questions answered

To Lori Scinto’s comments last week, that attempted to question the existence of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail, by asserting that they and their supporting politicians have a hidden agenda and that their “appearance” was not like, from the Tweed Valley! Lori, I personally know a lot of these people, and I couldn’t wish to find a more dedicated group of volunteers, trying their darnedest to revitalise our historic rail corridor for the benefit of as many people as possible. They have a true vision for the best outcome for the whole community, instead of leaving the corridor to endlessly rot away uselessly, until

the government inevitably sells it off, because nobody gives a damn. Now you may well think that wishing for a train service, will eventuate in it being miraculously funded soon, but that clearly is not going to happen. I might say too, that no politician appears prepared to come out and say that to their electorate, because so many people, probably like yourself, wouldn’t vote for them. But the train isn’t returning, so there has to be another use for the corridor, and that’s exactly why the NRRT exists. To save the corridor, and give something wonderful to the community. It’s not at all about “Trails versus Trains”, simply because trains are not a contender, they haven’t been for 14 years. And all this easy talk about having both Trails and Trains together, well, may I suggest that you and your friends go and have a good look at the real corridor, and walk along it with the clear objective of how you would engineer it. It wont take long until you realise that the corridor was only ever designed to accommodate a single standard gauge track, with many, many steep sides and cuttings, bridges, tunnels, and all the way, drainage. When you start thinking like a civil engineer, and I’ve spoken to a few, you get to see how complicated and expensive it all gets. Yes, I think we’ve all come from the viewpoint that trains should come back, and then, that we should try and have trails and trains together, but I can assure you, it’s only a matter of time of really serious walking and thinking, that you’ll realise that the only viable use, is a rail trail, because it will get funding. It already has. So the agenda is very simple and logical, with clear thought for our community’s improved economic future, by creating jobs for our kids. Maybe 100, more or less, who knows, that’s up to the future to tell. M y thi nki ng i s, i t’s e i the r $13million for a top rail trail for Tweed, or it’s nothing, as I really can’t see either government accepting any other version on the corridor, for its money to go into. And why would they? Tim Shanasy, Byron Bay Send your letters to editor@ theweekly.net.au. Letters must contain a name and suburb to be printed.

Council to decide on Pottsville school site March Planning Committee motions

TWEED SHIRE Council will decide whether to retain the future high school site within the Seabreeze Estate at Pottsville, after a development application was submitted to subdivide the land for housing. The development application, as revealed by The Weekly last week, seeks to subdivide the site into 69 residential lots, two public reserves and one drainage lot, after their 2015 proposal to subdivide the site into 65 lots was knocked back by Council, who had earmarked the land for a future school site. A subsequent Land and Environment Court (LEC) appeal supported Council’s decision on the basis that population growth within the Pottsville area would require a future school along with evidence a non-government school had shown interest in purchasing the site. The Department of Education told The Weekly they had no plans to build a school within Pottsville, as future student numbers could be supported by schools in Kingscliff, Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads. The Weekly put several questions to Tweed Shire Council regarding their plans for the school site. A Council spokesperson said they will need to review their position on the school site after the latest development application was submitted. “Council is legally obliged to consider the new DA on its merits, and will need to determine whether or not to review its current strategic position on retaining a potential school site, as resolved in 2013 and subsequent DAs and successful defence of an appeal in the LEC,” the spokesperson said. The future Dunloe Park development, located to the south of Pottsville and currently in the master planning stage could also potentially support a non-high school site according to Council. “Discussions with the Department of Education through the landowner’s masterplanning process, which is being assisted by Council staff, have indicated that provision of

a non-high school site might be made within the Dunloe Park Release Area, subject to further considerations and agreement,” the spokesperson said. Councillor Chris Cherry, who has long advocated for retaining the school site within the Seabreeze Estate told The Weekly she was shocked to see the new plans. “It is a feeling of déjà vu to see this new proposal come forward,” she said. “The last proposal was for 65 house lots, this one is now apparently for 69 and it flies in the face of the LEC Commissioners’ previous finding that the strategic planning for a high school for this community in the future must be considered. “With that in mind it is difficult to see what this proposal has been put forward for, is it about pricing out any private education institutions that may be considering buying the site?” Ms Cherry said she believed Dunloe Park would not be a good option for a school site, due to its location. “With Dunloe Park (just behind Black Rocks) soon to release their Masterplan for a further 4000-7000 people, the Seabreeze site is even more central to our community’s needs,” she said. “This is about corporate responsibility and adhering to the promises made to the Pottsville community.” YOUR THOUGHTS: Do you believe the Seabreeze site should be retained for a future high school?

Flood repair funds awarded

Council awarded another round of major flood repairs at Burringbar, Crabbes Creek and Cudgera Creek during their March Ordinary Meeting Australian Marine and Civil Pty Ltd will undertake bridge and culvert related works at Burringbar including Cudgera Creek Road, Heron Road and Ophir Glen Road. Works will also be undertaken at Crabbes Creek Road and Reserve Creek Road between Cudgera Creek and Reserve Creek. Councillors voted unanimously to defer a decision on a bundle of major landslip repairs at Upper Burringbar Road, Cudgera Creek Road and Tweed Valley Way, Burringbar. A report will be brought back to a future meeting.

Limpinwood logging action

Councillors voted to continue to pursue action against the Hewittville logging operation at Limpinwood in relation to alleged unauthorised works within a Crown Road Reserve at Zara Road. According to Council documents, an expert will investigate whether “by undertaking the road works, including placing the sediment on the shoulders of the road, that matter was likely to fall, wash or descend into one or more of the drainage channels and/or the dam and nearby creeks”. If the expert finds this is the case, Council will commence proceedings for an offence under section 120 of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act, that deals with water pollution. Further advice will determine whether Council can issue a Notice of Intention to cease using the Crown Road Reserve. Council will also pursue an offence under 76A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act that states that developments must not be carried out without consent Another motion relating to Hewittville was also brought before Councillors who voted

to issue a Notice of Intention to issue an order requiring Hewittville to stop using the property at 136 Boorman’s Road, Tyalgum for forestry operations. The motion calls to investigate “the apparent offence under section 76A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act for failing to obtain development consent”. Council will also investigate further information on the previous use of the site. Councillors James Owen and Pryce Allsop were not in the Council Chambers during both motions, while all other councillors voted for the two motions that were carried.

Urliup Road unauthorised works

Councillors voted to continue action against the owner of 1110 Urliup Road where alleged unauthorised works and water pollution have occurred. Council will receive advice from their solicitors whether to pursue the offences in either the Local Court or by issuing Penalty Infringement Notices. Cr Warren Polglase voted against the motion, whilst Cr James Owen was absent. All other councillors voted for the motion

Urliup Road complaints

Council will investigate the Urliup Road water extraction site after an urgent late agenda item was put forward by Mayor Katie Milne and Councillor Chris Cherry. The motion outlines that Council has received “ongoing compliance complaints” in relation to the water extraction facility at 477 Urliup Road. The motion calls for external consultants to carry out investigative work to determine whether Council should undertake enforcement action. The nature of the compliance complaints are unknown and were heard during a confidential session. The motion was carried with Cr Warren Polglase and Pryce Allsop voting against whilst Cr J Owen was absent.

Jo Kennett TWEED COAST residents have been alarmed by the brazen nature of a string of thefts from vehicles, some in broad daylight, that prompted a warning from Tweed Police on Tuesday, February 27. On Monday, February 26, a Pottsville resident confronted a gang of would-be thieves allegedly attempting to steal her car. “They were also trying to break into three other cars belonging to my neighbours,” the resident, who did not wish to be named, said. “All the cars were being ‘attacked’ as I came out and motioned towards the offenders. “I approached them and yelled and asked what they were doing. “Then they nearly ran me over and would have if I didn’t jump out of the way. “I contacted the police over the matter that night and on Tuesday. They informed me of five cars being stolen in the area from Pottsville through Kingscliff on this same night.” The following day, Tuesday, February 27, Tweed Police posted a warning on social media that there had been several reported thefts from motor vehicles and homes in Kingscliff and Casuarina in February - and that local residents needed to make sure homes and vehicles were secured. “We have an opportunistic few taking advantage of residents in the Kingscliff, and Casuarina areas,” the police statement reads. “We have had a number of reported thefts from motor vehicles and homes in February, which have been left open or with windows and door unsecured by their owners. “We would like to take this opportunity to remind the public to make sure your homes are locked and secured, and vehicles are always locked with windows up and no valuables left visible inside. “Thieves will take the smallest opportunity to relieve you of your belongings so don’t give them the opportunity.” Cabarita resident Georgie Alexander had her car broken into on the same night. “My wallet, bank cards and $300 were stolen and my other cards were left thrown across the road,” Ms Alexander told The Weekly. “My sunglasses and laptop charger were also taken. It’s disappointing in a small town, everyone is so trusting.” Another Casuarina resident, who didn’t want to be named, said they had both their family cars broken into on Monday, February 26, during the storm. “They went through both our gloveboxes and while rummaging left a weird collection of other people’s belongings and credit cards, so bizarre,” the resident said. “My dog usually alarms us to intruders (he’s caught one group before) but because it was storming he obviously didn’t hear them.”

Kelly Dixon from Casuarina said both her car and her husband’s van were broken into on the same Monday night, February 26. “Both our cars were in the driveway,” Mrs Dixon said. “There was absolutely nothing to take from my car because I purposely take all our keys, wallets, phones inside every night. “After reading about the break-ins I always do it. “They just pulled everything out of the glovebox and middle console and left all four doors open. “I’m not sure about my husband’s van though because he’s away but I don’t think so, I don’t think they are interested in paint brushes. “We’ve only been here for one and a half years and didn’t have this issue in Sydney.” A Kingscliff resident, who also wanted to remain anonymous, said she had a brand new car on her driveway on February 14 and her husband believed somebody was trying to break into it at 5pm in broad daylight. “Two nights later on February 16, I was dropped home at 11.30pm and we saw a guy wearing boardshorts only and holding a torch, race around the corner as my friend’s car entered the street,” she told the Weekly. “Our car was the same as my friend’s that was stolen so I contacted the police about it.” Another resident had a car broken into in Sutherland Street, Kingscliff, at 1pm in the afternoon on Saturday, March 3, in the carpark beside Cudgen Creek near the south-side rock wall. The man had taken his daughters and her friends to the creek for a swim. “They must have been watching us and they broke the window of my vehicle and the contents of the glovebox and the centre console were scattered amongst all the glass,” he said. “Nothing was taken but it meant I couldn’t risk taking my ute to work the next day. “The thing that annoys me is how blasé they were. “There were people all around the park there having barbeques when it happened. “I had six nine-year-old girls with me, my daughters and their friends, and they were terrified when we got back and saw the damage. “There’s definitely a lot of it going on in the last few weeks in the area from Kingscliff to Pottsville. “There’s a push for online reporting of these types of things from police but it’s very time consuming. I rang Crime Watch on 13 14 44 and it was quite quick to ring and put the report in. It only took a couple of minutes. “If people don’t report these things, even when nothing is stolen, police don’t realise how bad things are.” For more read page 12.

In brief ... Connecting Tweed Heads South footpaths

Council contractors start work this week constructing three sections of a 1.2m-wide footpath on Machinery Drive, Tweed Heads South, to form a continuous pedestrian path along the stretch of road starting next week. Currently, footpath exists only outside the Aldi store. Once construction is complete, footpath will run from Minjungbal Drive to the western end of the Machinery Drive circuit. A pedestrian refuge will be installed at the eastern end of the Machinery Drive circuit. Westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane flow when concrete trucks are on site with construction taking three weeks. Access will be maintained to all businesses and motorists should expect some short delays.

Increased activity along Tweed Valley rail corridor Four Council facilities, including TRAC Murwillumbah, will receive a funding boost through the NSW Government Stronger Country

Communities Fund.

Breathing life into community projects Four Council facilities have received a boost thanks to NSW Government funding through the Stronger Country Communities Fund. A total of $594,606 in grants will breathe life into local community projects. The Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, Tweed Regional Museum, Knox Park and the Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre will all benefit from the fund, which aims to deliver crucial local infrastructure to improve the quality of life of people living in regional NSW. Cultural facilities Tweed Regional Gallery and Tweed Regional Museum have received a grant of $198,202 for the following projects: Tweed Regional Gallery – A new unisex accessible toilet serving gallery and café visitors. This includes installation of single prefabricated unit, associated site preparation, plumbing, furniture and finishing and fees. Also included is construction of a paved walkway at the Gallery to provide universal public access and seating on the western side of the Gallery, incorporating improved access to the emergency

evacuation point, and links to the artist in residence studio. The grant will cover site preparation, environmental compliance construction and associated landscaping and street furniture. Tweed Regional Museum – Installation of 40kW solar PV to improve energy efficiency and sustainability, and enhance program capacity. The grant includes capital cost of 40kW solar PV and associated site works to ensure protection of equipment. Murwillumbah’s Knox Park Revitalisation Stage 2a also received a $198,202 grant, which will allow for the creation of a new centrally located compliant amenities block and associated access pathways. This project will activate Knox Park, increasing visitation by locals and tourists alike, boosting economic activity in the Murwillumbah CBD and creating jobs for locals. The Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre in Murwillumbah will also receive $198,202 grant to install a 165kW rooftop system, which will cover 20 per cent of the facility’s power needs through renewable resources. The facility’s two main roofs could accommodate 5,000 solar panels and reduce its carbon footprint by 189 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

Council is in the process of communicating with adjacent landholders regarding an increase in activity along the rail corridor. Council staff, consultants and surveyors will be accessing the rail corridor and adjoining areas to collect information which will inform the various Rail Trail project assessments. The works, which are required under NSW legislation, are to take place over the next six weeks and will include night surveys which will form part of the environmental impact assessment. The night work will involve spotlighting animals within bushland on various sections of the rail corridor and within short sections of creeks intersected by the rail corridor, Staff are mindful of the fact they will be working close to residences in some areas and will endeavour to cause as little disruption as possible, however some activity still may be noticed. If there are any issues or problems associated with this activity please contact Council on (02) 6670 2400.

Land swap announced A number of South Murwillumbah businesses devastated by the 2017 flood have put their hand up to move their operations to flood-free land, thanks to a groundbreaking $3 million land swap arrangement funded by the NSW Government. Under the deal, Council will now prepare the 16.11 hectare plot for development and apply for further State government grants to for the cost of infrastructure, such as roads, water and sewer. Businesses would have up to 10 years to relocate. Their former flood-prone land would be back zoned, most likely for community or agricultural uses in order to remove impediments from the flood plain. Priority was given to businesses in high velocity flood areas or of high value (more than 50 employees who lost more than $1 million in the March 2018 flood). The seven businesses interested in relocating employ around 300 people and include Shoobridge Transport, Williams Timber & Trusses, Hayes Steel and O’Connors Carrying Service.

Musicians Connecting Communities events in Kingscliff and Murwillumbah Council has committed to giving the local music scene a boost by creating and supporting two upcoming events featuring local musicians. In partnership with local venues Council will promote the Musicians Connecting Communities or MC2 festivals in Kingscliff on 28 April and in Murwillumbah on 19 May. Both festivals will feature a line-up of local musicians playing in various venues on the day, with attendees invited to listen in and support local businesses. The events are the result of a successful grant application made by Council to the Live Music Office’s Live and Local Initiative, funded by CREATE NSW. Council Cultural Planner David Burgener said the festivals offer a chance for musicians to play in the shire and connect

with local venues. “One of the intentions of the festivals is to establish relationships between Council, musicians and venue owners,” Mr Burgener said. “The idea is to help support live music in the shire by providing a family friendly event the whole community can enjoy. “These festivals will make use of hotels and clubs but also less traditional venues such as cafes and even a tattoo parlour.” Another focus of the festivals will be an attempt to support the establishment of mentoring situations, especially for emerging artists just starting out on their musical careers. Mr Burgener said Council hopes to organise a workshop associated with the festivals to support artists in understanding what is expected of them in a professional environment. “It’s not just about bringing in experts and holding workshops

Living and Loving the Tweed

though, there are lots of musicians in the area with knowledge to pass on,” he said. “Music plays an important role in supporting a vibrant community, not only for the artists involved or the local economy, but also when it comes to making connections between individuals and organisations. “The name, Musicians Connecting Communities (MC2) really captures what the festivals are all about. “We know the talent is out there and if Council can do something to help bring it along it is a worthwhile investment on many levels.” An event will soon be created for the MC2 Festivals on Council’s Facebook page.

Neighbours and Neighbour Day just around the corner Having a positive relationship with a neighbour can make life easier in many ways. For Ian and Bronwyn Jenkins of Murwillumbah there is no better example than the assistance they received from their Tweed Valley Way neighbours the Laytons during last year’s flood. “We’d actually only recently bought the property and were still moving in so I was stuck at our old house while Bronwyn was here dealing with the flood,” Ian said. “Louise was in constant contact, calling and keeping an eye out, and it made a big difference knowing Bronwyn wasn’t alone and had someone there for her.” From helping out during times of need to just having a yarn over the back fence, neighbours help provide the security that makes us feel part of a strong community. This is why Council is getting behind Neighbour Day and has signed up as a Very Neighbourly Organisation, an initiative of Relationships Australia which started in 2003. Tweed residents can get involved on Sunday 25 March by spending time with one or more neighbours, with suggestions ranging from cups of tea to parties in front yards, or at a local park. Council Education Officer Melissa Tate said Neighbour Day is a great opportunity to make connections.

“Some neighbours are like family and others you may not know yet – Neighbour Day is the perfect excuse to say hi and introduce yourself, or get together again and have a great time,” Ms Tate said. “Having a good relationship with neighbours makes us feel good, feel safer and reduces loneliness, while our kids also feel happier and safer in their community. “Use Neighbour Day as an excuse to catch up, or say hi for the first time, drop off some veggies from the garden, invite them out to see a band or a catch up at the park with the kids.” Planning your event has been made easy with everything you need at the Neighbour Day website www.neighbourday.org including – posters, invitations, connection cards, selfie signs and a how to guide. The first 20 Tweed residents to register their Neighbour Day activity on Council’s Facebook page, or by calling (02) 6670 2567, will receive $50 vouchers to spend at local businesses including farmer’s markets. If you’re not among the first 20 to register though you won’t miss out, simply like the Neighbour Day event and complete our neighbour connections survey to go into the draw for a portable Weber barbecue and cart valued at nearly $500.

Tweed Valley Way open again at Blacks Drain Tweed Valley Way at Blacks Drain, South Murwillumbah, which was washed away in the 31 March 2017 floods, has been rebuilt and was reopened to traffic last week. The day after the floods, Council workers managed to rebuild a temporary single lane to reconnect the community isolated by the catastrophic failure. Since then, temporary traffic lights have been in place to regulate the one-way flow across the temporary section. In November, Council awarded the contract to design and construct a permanent repair to Skeen Constructions Pty Ltd as the priority major flood road repair in the shire. That work was completed last week, with ancillary works to continue to the end of March. When required, one lane of the new section may be closed under the management of stop/slow flagmen to allow those ancillary works to continue. The next major road repair to be undertaken in the shire will be Clothiers Creek Road. The March flood caused approximately $28.9 million of damage to roads and bridges. To date, more than 1100 minor road and bridge damage items have been repaired. To recover road damage costs under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) and grant funding, Council cannot use its own workforce but must engage third-party contractors.

Expression of interest Marketing, promotion and destination management for Tweed Shire Council EOI no: ED EOI 01/2017 Description Tweed Valley Way at Blacks Drain, South Murwillumbah, now open to traffic.

New reservoir in pipeline to service developments Council contractors will start work at the end of March to build a new three-megalitre water reservoir at Chambers Lookout, Banora Point, to service existing and future developments in the area. The Chambers Lookout carpark will be closed until the end of the year for construction. The new reservoir will provide additional supply capacity for the current and future developments planned for the area, catering for the projected population growth as new houses are occupied.

Local developers have contributed to the $2.2 million cost of the project. The reservoir will be built on Council-owned land next to the existing Chambers Lookout reservoir near the corner of Terranora Road and Fraser Drive. About 1500 square metres of regrowth vegetation will be removed to allow the new infrastructure to be built. The new reservoir will be of reinforced concrete construction with an aluminium roof and be built by Stirloch Constructions Pty Ltd.

Road stabilisation works Council has awarded two contracts to stabilise and reseal eight urban roads at a cost of about $1.6 million. The program of work will start in Tweed Heads on 26 March, with all of Agnes Street and Cox Drive to be stabilised and re-asphalted. After Easter, the contractor then moves to Banora Point, where most of Mariners Crescent and Old Ferry Road (from Mariners Crescent south to north of Mariners Crescent north) will be done prior to moving to Bogangar to stabilise a section of Cabarita Road from Oleander Avenue to Poinciana Drive. Then the program goes to Chinderah where all of Morton Street will be stabilised and re-asphalted, together with the section from Tweed Coast Road to Morton Street. The program then switches to nightworks at Banora Point to stabilise and re-asphalt a number of sections on Leisure Drive, from the Nudgee Street roundabout to east of Greenway Drive, and Fraser Drive, from Vintage Lakes Drive south to the Coles supermarket on Leisure Drive. Nightworks will be from Sunday to Thursday night from 7pm–5am. This work will occur in mid to late April. All nearby residents will be notified of works before they begin. All work requires the existing asphalt to be milled off, prior to the roads being stabilised using cement, then bitumen sealed. Then, about a week later, another contractor comes in to re-asphalt the roads. Motorists are requested to drive slowly through roadworks and obey all signs and the directions of traffic controllers. Electronic signs will notify motorists of works before they begin. The Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast are not expected to affect these works but any residents attending games events are advised to plan ahead.

Casuarina car theft ends in Sunshine Coast drama Jo Kennett THE THEFT of a utility from Casuarina on Monday, February 26, ended in dramatic fashion on the Sunshine Coast with police charging five people who were caught travelling in the stolen vehicle. The utility was new and full of expensive plumbing equipment and was stolen from the Bonnor family’s Casuarina driveway during a wild storm which brought heavy rain to the Tweed on Monday, February 26. The stolen silver HiLux utility was spotted in Caboolture heading towards Brisbane but as the Qld Police Force has a no pursuit-policy, officers used spikes on the road to deflate the tyres and stop the vehicle. Sunshine Coast detectives contacted the HiLux owner, Craig Bonnor, on Monday, March 5, to inform him the car had been found and the gang of thieves had been taken into custody. “The police had to throw down spikes to stop the car,” Mr Bonner’s wife Michelle said. “They said it has no tyres left now and the car is not in good condition. “They told my husband that we need to get assessors in to see if the car is a write-off.” The utility may have been used in a subsequent car theft attempt in Pottsville at 11.20pm the same night. There were a group of five or six individuals involved in that attempt, but the owner of the car interrupted the thieves and they fled the scene. “The first thing we knew about it all was when Craig went to go to work on Tuesday morning and there was no car,” Mrs Bonnor told The Weekly. Mrs Bonnor said the theft had left her family feeling really unsettled.

“We work hard for what we’ve got,” she said. “Some of the tools can’t be replaced because Craig bought them when he first started his apprenticeship and we don’t have receipts for a lot of it because it was bought a while ago. “He had two massive tool boxes full of good quality tools, so we won’t get all that back from insurance - you just can’t replace it.” Mrs Bonnor said that at 2.45am on the night her husband’s vehicle was stolen the thieves dumped some of the items from the vehicle at Mudgeeraba on the Gold Coast. “Witnesses there saw my husband’s HiLux with plumbing gear and a group of people dumping all the pipe and fittings just off the highway,” she said. “When they found the plumbing gear in Mudgeeraba we got a phone call because the thieves had thrown out one of Craig’s signs so the people who owned the property contacted us about it. “The people in the house that witnessed them throwing the stuff out said the gang of thieves had a Range Rover and a silver HiLux and were very brazen and loud.” The theft of the vehicle came a night after a Range Rover was reported stolen from a driveway in Salt. That vehicle was later found burnt out in Coomera. “It was then put into the hands of the Qld police and we had to report it stolen in Qld as well as NSW,” Mrs Bonner said. “Then on Tuesday night the same car was pursued by police in Mermaid Beach. “Police tried to pull them over, but they got away because of the nopursuit policy.

“Our vehicle was then sighted Wednesday afternoon at Reedy Creek by friends of ours. “It was our friends who saw it being chased by police and they told us, so we contacted police. “It was flagged as stolen in Qld when we reported it to Qld Police and now we have heard that officers located the car on the Sunshine Coast and five people have been charged.” Mrs Bonner said everyone has been on high alert because there were quite a few cars broken into before they took the Bonner’s. “It was locked so we aren’t sure how they got in,” she said. “I think it was the same group that tried to break into a car in Pottsville on the same night.” Mrs Bonnor said that without social media they would have very little information about the other crimes that happened around the same time as their vehicle was stolen. “We were overwhelmed by responses to our online posts and also the support from other people in the community, family, friends and other local tradies, who not only helped to locate our car and tools but also offered their cars, tools and support so Craig could continue working,” she said. “As we have our own plumbing business and work for ourselves this generosity and support has helped us a lot this week and we really want to thank the community.” Mrs Bonnor said it was a great relief that the car had been found and the thieves caught. “We feel a lot better knowing that they have been caught, that’s what we really wanted so they can’t do this to other people.

Soccer six-a-side

MURWILLUMBAH FOOTBALL Club has been running a winter Six-a-Side Soccer Competition for nearly three decades and the competition is again calling for teams for the upcoming 2018 competition. Competition coordinator Stefan Schwarz said six-aside is a social competition, where matches are played in a competitive spirit but with amended rules to avoid injury and allow players of all ages and abilities to get involved and have fun. “I have been a part of the competition for more than 15 years now,” he said. “I was 42 and thought my playing career was well and truly over, how wrong I was.” Mr Schwarz said showing up on a Wednesday night and not knowing anyone and being unsure about my his fitness and ability, was a big step. “But I was welcomed into a team immediately and made lots of friends over the years,” he said. “The men’s competition mostly consists of teams where players are over 30 years old. “The average age would be around 40 but we still have men playing in their 50s, 60s and even 70s.” Some younger teams have also registered during the past few years and Mr Schwarz said they had integrated immediately. “The ladies ages are all the way through from teenagers to women in their 40s,” he said. “Playing football (soccer) is a great way to stay fit and socialise with like minded people from all over the valley and support a local club.” Teams consists of six players: one goalie and five outfields. To have enough players for the season (April to September) and allow for absences teams usually consist of 10 players. The fees are kept at a minimum and are very affordable with $500 per season per team. The competition this year will start on Wednesday, April 4. There will be two sign on nights at the club house before on Wednesday, March 21 and Wednesday, March 28, from 5pm to 7pm If you think this is for you, please call 0408 949 791 or email nobbyscreek@gmail.com for more information, or check out the club’s website http://mfcwarning.com.au/

Help needed after Little Athletics Club break-in Jo Kennett TWEED LITTLE Athletics Club has suffered a serious blow with thieves breaking into a storage shed at Kingscliff and stealing valuable equipment on Wednesday night, February 28. Centre Manager Andrew Barkworth said that the break-in was discovered Thursday morning when one of the coaches saw the shed door was slightly open. “At about the same time we got a call from Tweed Police who had found some of the items they probably couldn’t sell thrown into the bushes on the other side of the oval,” Mr Barkworth told The Weekly. “When I got down there I found some of the food had been pulled out of the freezer and was still slightly frozen so it must have happened on Wednesday night. “It looks like the door has been pushed open with a bullbar.” “They took anything that was electronic. It’s all gone. “Our PA speakers with microphones, walkie talkies, chargers, batteries and chargers for line-marking machines and the mower were all taken. “We have the ride-on-mower that we use to put the kids’ equipment out. “It looks like they’ve tried to start the mower but only broken the starter motor so we had to get a ute to put all the kids equipment out on Saturday.” Mr Barkworth said there are several items the not-for-profit club would need to replace to finish the season off before they can organise reimbursement through the insurance company. “The starter for the mower and the starter gun are the two most expensive things,” he said.

“It would probably cost between three and four thousand dollars to replace it. “Luckily we only have three weeks left in the season but we use that equipment for school carnivals so we can make a bit of profit from that, so we need it replaced by mid year. “At the moment the kids aren’t doing some of the things they need to do coming into the state championship on March 24. “We had to cancel the hurdles because we couldn’t get the equipment out and had to cancel other races because we couldn’t mark all the lines. “Probably one third of events we would normally run had to be cancelled. “Once they get in you can see it’s a kids sporting thing and to steal that is really disappointing but what are you going to do. Can’t hire security as a non -profit for kids. “The door is repairable, they just pushed it in enough to gain access to the roller door.

The club is run by volunteers and all money raised goes to equipment and supplies. Ashley Challis, who volunteers with the club as an age group manager, said that Mr Barkworth was really upset about the theft and sent all the kids off for a run on Saturday so he could tell the adults what they had lost. “They stole the line marker and Andrew was there remarking the field by hand at 6am,” she said. “He is such an awesome guy and does so much for the community.” Mr Barkworth said that the club would run a raffle to try to make enough money to buy new equipment and would love to hear from anyone interested in supporting the club by donating a prize. Anyone interested in helping out can contact the club at http://tweedlac. org.au/contact/ or phone Andrew on 0416072375.

Sweet Talk with Robert Hawken

Cane testing underway

THE RECENT rain has been very beneficial for both cane and soy beans with both crops looking good. An average size cane crop is expected this year but it’s too early to tell if there is likely to be a sizeable number of hectares stood-over this season, due to the extended harvest season in 2017. The sugar industry’s investment in research and development is substantial, particularly in the areas of Agronomy and soil health, pest and disease control, environmental sustainability and plant breeding. At this time of the year growers and the industry’s technical staff are monitoring the progress of new varieties. The search for pest and disease resistance and greater productivity is ongoing. Diseases such as Rust, Sugar Cane Smut, Ratoon Stunting Disease and Fiji Leaf Gall are major constraints on production. Varieties also have to have the ability to withstand conditions such as flooding, drought, frost and high wind. They also need to have good harvestability and milling ability. Each season extensive trial work is carried out in variety trial plots that are located on several different farms in the Condong Mill area. There are up to eighty experimental varieties in each trial field. The trial cane is harvested, weighed and sampled for sugar content to determine the most productive varieties. It can take several years to determine the most commercially viable cane varieties. Each year several new cane varieties are released to the growers for production. Bye for now, until next time keep safe, Rob Hawken.

Local Expert Health Advice – Open 7 Days 20% of Australian adults suffer from chronic pain, but by taking positive steps and managing your pain, your quality of life can be improved. There are two types of pain: • Acute pain, which starts suddenly and is usually short-lived. • Chronic pain which generally lasts for longer than three months. From the 1st of February, all medications containing codeine require a prescription, so what options are available over the counter for pain? Before a suitable medication can be supplied, there are a few issues that need to be discussed with your pharmacist or doctor. Onset and duration The location Type of pain The intensity Aggravation factors Factors that ease the pain Current medications Medical conditions Age

Some medications available over the counter include: • Paracetamol. • Aspirin and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), reduce inflammation (redness and swelling) as well as pain. • Topical creams (natural and medicated). • Complementary medicines such as Turmeric, Chondroitin, Maritime Pine Bark Extract (Arborvitae). Some non-medicated options: • Tens machine: a minute electrical current is passed through the skin via electrodes, prompting a pain-relieving response from the body. • R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression, elevation): This acronym is a popular treatment for injuries such as sprains, torn ligaments/muscles and stress fractures. By taking medications as directed, your pain is better maintained and the chances of side effects decreased. People with chronic pain should take their medication on a regular basis for best outcomes, so having a pain management plan is vital.

Local News 15

Wave of sadness follows passing of Kayla A WAVE of sadness has swept over the Tweed Shire this week after the much-loved Murwillumbah local 18-year-old Kayla Booth passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Condolences are flowing to the family as the shock of her loss was announced on the Kisses for Kayla social media page. Kayla touched the hearts and minds of hundreds of residents and maintained a strong connection to the Tweed Shire community, despite grappling with a devastating cancer diagnosis several years ago. Residents have describing her as a beautiful, smart, funny, sweet, courageous and strong young woman who will be both missed and forever in the hearts of many in the community. Kayla was diagnosed with a rare cancerous growth in her chest. Unfortunately, doctors could not shrink the tumour with radiation and six cycles of chemotherapy. Surgery was not an option due to the tumour attaching itself to her spine, chest wall and other organs on her left side

News of her passing quickly circulated around the Shire, with dozens of messages sending condolences to Kayla’s family. “Rest in Peace Kayla, my thoughts and prayers are with the family,” one comment reads. “So sad to hear this, have a safe journey darling girl,” another comment reads. Kayla had set up a social media page to update residents on her treatment called “Kisses for Kayla”. The family posted on the page on Monday, March 2, that she had lost her battle with the cancer. “Our beautiful warrior grew her wings today, she is now in heaven,” the post reads. “You are the strongest most courageous most beautiful girl. We love you so very much.” A funeral service will take place at the Gilbey Centre at Mt St Patrick’s College on Thursday, March 15 at 10am. See Weekly Memorials on page 55.

The Murwillumbah Mustangs teams are gearing up for another exciting NRRRL footy season

Mustangs step up training in pre-season

THECOUNTDOWNisonforthestartof the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League (NRRRL) season as the Murwillumbah Mustangs took their pre-season training regimes up a notch this week with hopes for a strong 2018 season. The Mustangs are this year nominating teams in all grades from First Grade, Reserve Grade, Under 18s and Ladies League Tag. The Mustangs A Grade team has welcomed a new recruit this year in Hadrian Domergue, who has travelled from France to join the club and joins current French player Remi Bignaw, with hopes to improve on last year’s result of sixth overall on the ladder. The Weekly visited the Mustang's preseason training session at their home ground Stan Sercombe Oval during wet conditions on Tuesday, March 6. While it was too early to talk positions for the First Grade team, Mustangs president Nigel Loft said he was eager to see what the new side can produce. “We’re looking at a similar team to last year, maybe a little heavier in the weight this year,” he said.

“We’re looking forward to another strong season and we’re also happy to welcome our new Under 18s coach Brendon Hill.” The side has also introduced a new social media manager Tammy Ayres and Debbie Vickery will be handling photography. Mustangs secretary Darin Skillington said the teams would not exist without the terrific support of the many loyal sponsors throughout the Tweed Valley. “This season a company named Cross Codes will be assisting the club with the Annual Sponsorship Drive for the upcoming season,” he said. “Cross Codes will contact you directly regarding sponsorship for this season's sponsorship and the Cross Codes contacts are Blair Littlejohn and Noel Lee. Should you have any questions relating to the sponsorship or with the club do not hesitate to contact Club President Nigel Lofts or myself. To find out more about sponsorship this year can phone Darin on: 0407 218 080.

TWEED PALLIATIVE Support is urgently seeking new volunteers to undertake carer training in 2018. Known locally as one of the best free services for palliative patients and receiving zero government funding, Tweed Palliative Support and Wedgetail Hospice is run by an outstanding group of volunteers who welcome new volunteers with open arms. Volunteers completing the training will have the opportunity to care for Tweed Palliative Support (TPS) clients at Wedgetail Hospice, in the home-care service and out and about in the community. Volunteers will work with patients such as local identity Albert (Albi) Webster, who has been a member of the show society for 25 years. Albi was instrumental in introducing a dog show to the Tweed Shire 25 years ago and 15 years ago he started the Tweed River K9 Club. “I used to travel all over the country and saw dog shows happening everywhere, so I thought why not have one in Murwillumbah,” Albi said. “Barry Roach suggested the show society host the dog shows, which are still running today.”

Albi has about 40 years of breeding dogs around the world and had the reputation as the only person to breed a pure white Chihuahua. “I love Chihuahuas, they have a great temperament with a spicy attitude.” TPS volunteer training coordinator Autumne Camidge said volunteers in the service say that donating their time and energy to help people is enriching for themselves as well as being a privileged role. “The annual free training program does cover many aspects of palliative care and equips people with the skills and knowledge to ensure they are confident and competent volunteer carers,” she said. “Tweed Palliative Support knows the importance of teamwork and commitment in providing a free service that can function effectively and compassionately in our community.” Training is Tuesdays 9.30am-3.00pm starting soon. If you are interested in joining the training and contributing to your community in a unique and meaningful way, you can contact TPS by phoning: (02) 6672 8459.

Army of volunteers clean up the Tweed Jo Kennett

VOLUNTEERS WERE out in force for Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday March 4, while Tweed schools joined in School Clean Up Day on Friday, March 2. Bogangar Public School students took part in the School Clean Up Day, with younger students cleaning up the school grounds and Years 3 to 6 the surrounding bushland. Assistant Principal Alyson McIntyre said it was really nice for the kids to be part of a community event and to learn about caring for their surroundings. “It also feeds back into our curriculum - looking at sustainability through our Science and Human Society and Its Environment units,” she said. “Then we link that back into protecting wildlife and caring for the environment. “It’s just nice for them to give back to the community.” Year 3 student Eden Bates said it was good to help the environment by cleaning up so that animals had a good place to live. “We want to have a nice environment not a dirty one,” she said. Summer Taylor, another Year 3 student said it was really good that everyone gets to join in and help. “We learn about the community helping the environment in school and it’s good for the animals and to keep the trees and plants healthy,” she said.

Sally Brewer from Kingscliff was one of many volunteers sweating it out at Norries Headland, Cabarita Beach on Sunday as part of Clean Up Australia Day. “I belong to Cabarita Dunecare there’s a bunch of Dunecare people cleaning up today,” Ms Brewer told The Weekly. “The Dunecare team is constantly cleaning up other people’s rubbish so this is just a designated day to do it. “They wanted to build cabins and a resort here but let’s save something for nature and for us all to enjoy and look after that environment. “If we don’t have that what have we got?” Cabarita locals Julia Sanderson and her friend Angie said that 30 per cent of the rubbish they had picked up was from McDonalds. “They obviously drive from Chinderah and throw it out here when they finish,” she said. “The company needs to take some social responsibility as well as the consumers. “They need to educate their clientele about the correct disposal of their product.” The ladies were amazed to find a $20 note each as they cleaned. “We don’t find money very often so that will pay for a coffee,” Ms Sanderson said. “It seems like a bit of good karma.” Dianne Young, who has run the Hastings Point Clean Up Australia Day registration post for many

years, said they had a small but enthusiastic turnout this year. “There was a noticeable decline in rubbish, except for the rocky areas framing the headland which had a large amount of plastics, Ms Young said. “That is a serious concern in this sensitive area. “Takeaway containers, coffee cups and plastic bottles were the main items. “I want to thank everyone who helped today or who clean up as part of their regular walks and activities. “It makes a huge difference having locals that work so hard to keep the area beautiful.” Yvette van Amstel, Administrative Assistant at Tweed Shire Council’s Waste

Management department, said that one of the biggest efforts was at Fingal Head. “Connor Hayes, a project officer with the Tweed Byron Local Aboriginal land Council coordinated local residents and bobcats to fill 2 x 10 metres skips,” Ms van Amstel said. “There were 60 volunteers that signed in, young and old. “The skip bins were filled to the brim. “We did the whole Letitia Road and there was rubbish up on the main road going into Fingal as well.” “It was hot work but we had a great turnout with Aboriginal Elders, the Fingal Head Community Association, the community members and their

families, the Rovers SLSC, Fingal Head Coast Care, Tweed Byron LALC, Tweed Valley Sailing Club and Tweed Shire Council provided skip bins. “Everybody was really happy with the turnout and the results.” Tweed Shire Council issued a note to participants via social media thanking them for cleaning “our streets, parks, beaches, bushland and waterways to preserve our beautiful environment and maintain a clean place for our community and wildlife to enjoy, thank you,” the message said. According to Clean Up Australia organisers Tweed residents were part of an army of 587,962 volunteers at 7,253 sites across the country to volunteer their time.

MAKING the switch to solar just makes good sense. Right now, investing in solar delivers serious and immediate returns. How so you might ask? We understand it can seem complicated to understand the real returns on a solar system, so we thought we’d break it down for you. According to the Clean Energy Council the average hours of sunlight a day across the year is 4.2 hours, so we will use this as the base to calculate the solar generation. Based on 4.2 hours a day, a 5kW system will generate 21kW of clean energy every day. Now let’s say you self-consume 50%, or 11kW your total solar generation each day. Based on today’s average electricity charges of 28c/kW, by cutting your reliance on the grid by 50%, you stand to make a saving of $3.08 each day. That might not seem much but over the course of a year that’s $1124 back in your pocket. Then there’s the other 50% of your solar production that you can export back to the grid. Based on today’s average solar feed in tariffs you’re looking at anywhere

Now let’s say you want to finance your solar system. The cost of a good quality 5kW system will set you back approximately $6000 (less than a third of the cost just five years ago). Based on a 5-year payback, with a $0 deposit, you’re looking at monthly repayments of just over $100, or $1200.00 per annum. So right now, you’re in front, with immediate electricity savings delivered of $1605 per year and the system cost of $1200 on payback, you’re $405 in front. That’s a win. We are genuinely passionate about the benefits of a good quality solar system designed to deliver you real savings.

from 8 cents to 15 cents, depending on your electricity retailer. Let’s base our calculations somewhere in the middle… if you are exporting the remaining 50% at 12 cents per kW, that’s another saving of $1.32 cents per day, or a further $481 a year you’ll save in electricity costs. That’s a whopping total of $1605 per year in savings straight from the get go.

Agape Outreach Inc convenor Theresa Mitchell said nominees must provide service, support and leadership to women living in the Tweed Shire and Gold Coast. “A nominee will demonstrate sustained passion and commitment to women through outstanding achievement, leadership and representation of women and women’s issues,” Ms Mitchell said. “We wish them all the best of luck at the Heart of Women Awards and recognise every single one of them as making an outstanding achievement to better the community. “If you haven’t yet bought tickets, join us on Saturday, March 10, please arrive for 5.45pm ready to start at 6pm sharp.” The dress theme is “Woman in Red”, with ball gowns and after five wear. Prizes for the best dressed. “Don’t miss this night, it will be one to be remembered for a lifetime,” Ms Mitchell said. Carmen Stewart has been nominated for the Making a Difference Award for her ongoing commitment to community development in Murwillumbah through initiatives such as It Takes a Town and Thrive 2484. It Takes a Town has provided a food pantry and clothes rack for the homeless in Murwillumbah, community picnics, family events and will soon implement their pick your own fruit trail. “One of Carmen’s biggest achievements was arranging a town rally to bring awareness of the lack of affordable housing in the Tweed Shire,” her nomination read. “The media attention on the rally sparked a commitment from government of more funding into housing options for across the region. “This has since helped many woman with children secure affordable reliable housing.” Kingsliff-based contender for Woman of the Year is Noni Yates, who has also been nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year, Big Idea Award and Making a Difference Award. Noni, a hairdresser and salon owner, donates her time as the south coast organiser of Hair Aid Community Cuts, a service that provides regular free haircuts to the homeless and needy including at Angels Kitchen, Southport and Agape Tweed Heads. Noni also participates in Hair Aid’s offshore program that provides people in disadvantaged communities a five day haircutting program as a means of earning income. In five days participants are capable of completing basic men’s, women’s and children’s haircuts. They then have the opportunity to set up shop and earn a living. “For the Offshore projects this can quite literally mean the difference between life and death,” Noni said. “In countries where there is no government support, social welfare and other basic necessities for a good healthy Noni Yates

Naomi Day is another Tweed resident who has been nominated for Woman of the Year for her efforts in developing the REACH program following the death of her son, Kyran, at a Sydney Hospital in 2013.

Hayes Toyota celebrates 100 Years

Top: Hayes Toyota management Middle: The Hayes family Left: Dealer principal Bert Hayes. Bottom: 100 Year Celebrations with the Hayes family and friends

HAYES TOYOTA Murwillumbah celebrated 100 years since officially opening on Friday, March 2. More than 200 people gathered at the Prospero Street dealership to enjoy a catch up with the Hayes family and enjoy a drink. While absent due to being admitted to hospital this week, Bert was there in spirit as his wife Annie took the reins. “He wanted to be here so much,” Annie told The Weekly. “But we’re giving him regular updates and it’s been a great day.” According to the company’s documented history, Hayes Toyota was first established by the late AG Hayes, who set up a blacksmith wheel right shop in 1917. He then acquired a motor vehicle franchise in the early 1920s to coincide with his horse drawn business and went on to become one of the leading country motor dealers between Brisbane and Newcastle, selling many brands including the General Motors range. Following his retirement in 1951 the business was handed over to his two sons Tom and Reg who managed to obtain the Austin agency which later became BMC and later Leyland Australia. These were difficult times for the business as Holden and later Falcon took a stranglehold over the industry

with the British product often struggling against the fierce competition. In 1975, the company applied for the Toyota passenger franchise and following their appointment were able to experience for the first time the quality of the Toyota product with new levels of sales being achieved. Unfortunately, Tom’s sudden death in 1979 and Reg’s decision to retire brought what seemed to be a sudden end to what can only be described as a true pioneer dealership. Both Tom and Reg’s sons were active in the dealership and decided to take up the challenge for the future. Bert Hayes Jnr was appointed dealer principal and was assisted by his cousin Jim, who together carried on the tradition their grandfathers had started. Today a state of the art dealership stands on the same site as its humble beginning in 1917. “At Hayes Toyota we are proud to have been market leaders in our prime market area every year since 1990,” Bert said. “We have received many of the highest recognition awards from Toyota for sales service and parts including four times rural dealer of the year. “Our company history of serving the people of the Tweed Byron region is probably longer than most but above all our grandfathers motto continues with every business transaction we do.”

The couple have already seen a steady increase in sales and are hopeful locals will check out the range. “We’re sticking to only scooters as we know there’s already a great skate shop in town,” Amy said. “Gradually we will stock all the brands the children like in our shop as well we will be starting an online store in the coming weeks, so we can sell Australia wide.” The couple are also hoping to organise a scooter competition with plenty of prizes on offer. “We are hoping to organise a scooter comp in Murwillumbah in the future with lots of prizes,” Amy said. “So, come down and have a look we have a great range and we’re conveniently located on Murwillumbah Street near the Professionals Real Estate and New Leaf Café.” To find out more visit www.humblescooters. com.au or phone (02) 6672 3032.

MURWILLUMBAH LOCALS Rob Clapham and Amy Walker have set up a dedicated scooter business in the Murwillumbah CBD known as Humble Scooters. During the past three years scooters have increased in popularity amongst young Tweed Shire residents, with high demand for quality parts and complete scooter setups. “We are both from the area and have moved around Australia but ended up back in Murwillumbah where all the family live,” Amy said. Rob has a background in earthmoving, working for local and interstate companies, while Amy is working at a Tweed aged care facility. “The main reason we decided to get into scooters was our children Clint and Sam always needing new parts that were up the coast and Murwillumbah didn’t have a dedicated scooter shop, so here we are,” Rob said. “Local parents can shop local at the same price as the coastal outlets.”

POTTSVILLE RAINE & Horne principal Jamie Wilmar has taken out the top gong at the real estate company’s state awards held on the Gold Coast on Saturday, March 3. For the third year in a row Wilmar was the highest grossing commission agent for Raine & Horne between Grafton and north Queensland. He also achieved the highest number of sales. “It’s a bit of a David and Goliath story,” Mr Wilmar told The Weekly. “That’s what we are most proud of, to be pumping those numbers out of a little place called Pottsville. “I like the variation of the industry and being the master of your own destiny. “I set goals and try to push myself to better them.” Wilmar, whose son Jesse works with him as a sales consultant, said real estate is a great career for young people. “It’s a rollercoaster but if you can hang in through the bad times they can have a really successful career,” he said.

Powerful New Ways to Save with Solar

“The Best Investment You Can Make in 2018 is More Solar Power for Your Home”

How to Get the Most from Your Solar Investment in 2018 Switch Power Companies Solar Power is the best investment you can make in 2018. In this special feature we will show you how you can maximise savings on your power bill with strategic new ways that make the most of new technologies and changing network conditions.

There are huge differences in the pricing of Energy Retailers today. You want to get the most for selling your solar, but you don’t want to pay more for everything else! Some retailers set a high price so they can then give you a “discount” and many people believe the highest percentage discount is what you are looking for. It is confusing to try and compare offers and most people do not have time to wade through this mine field. At 888 Solar Tek we compare all the offers and negotiate even better deals for you.

Cash in on Solar Incentives

Power Prices Going Up Again

Predictions from industry experts have power prices going up by another 50% in the next two years. Reliance on aging coal generators and a lack of certainty for investors in new energy generation is creating a price spiral in the National Energy Market. Expect another 15-25% increase in July this year and more in 2019. Solar Power can minimise the amount you pay for electricity now and protect you from ongoing price rises. Some of our clients are now getting credits from their electricity supplier instead of huge bills, by following our advice and strategies. The higher that electricity prices go, the more your solar energy is worth, not only to offset charges, but also to export to the grid for profit. Find out how easy it is for you to do the same.

Match the Solar Energy to Your Power Use

Everyone is different and how you use energy needs careful consideration before just slapping a cheap package deal on your roof. Solar panels last decades, so you want to make sure your investment is sized and placed to erase your carbon footprints as much as possible. Is it better to use solar for your hot water or use off peak from the grid? is air conditioning more efficient with panels facing East or West? We ask the right questions to get you an efficiency that gives extra value to your solar investment every day.

The Federal Government is still offering Small technology Certificates (STC’s) that greatly reduce the upfront cost of new solar panels. Every year you get less STC’s, so it is better act now while the benefit is Sell Your Power for Profit higher.to888 Solar Tek make it easy to The solar feed in tariff is now 12-15c claim your benefit by doing all the per kWh, which means you can sell excess paperwork and trading them on your power to the grid to cover your night time behalf, giving you an up front discount energy use and daily supply charge. If you on your new solar system. The rules produce and sell enough power, the change all the time and you need the electricity company will owe you money! right equipment to get money back As prices go up you will get more and from adding solar to your home. more for the excess electricity you sell.

Get Around Network Rules

It is disappointing to find out that the network won’t let you export an unlimited amount of solar power to the grid. However, there are many ways to benefit from producing more power and to ensure you are exporting the maximum most of the time. Our design consultants look at your total energy picture to find new tricks that you did not know about before.

If You Use Less Than 10 kWh per Day...

Install 5-8 kW of Solar Panels to Eliminate your power bill

With Feed in tariffs at 12-16c you can now sell power back to the grid as part of a strategy to minimise and eliminate power charges completely. Production from 2.5 kW of solar - about 10 panels - will offset the dreaded electricity supply charge when all the generated power is exported. You now get half as much for the power you sell as it costs you to buy from the grid. If you export enough, the rest of your power charges can be eliminated. This strategy is ideal for retirees or small households.

If You Use 10-25 kWh per Day...

Install 5-8 kW of Solar Panels and Batteries if Export is Limited

Panel Level Optimization

Every solar panel on a string affects every other panel, so one panel in shade can bring down the performance of a whole system. Tigo have now released special electronic optimizers, so shade will no longer hold back the flow of power. Tigo optimizers also allow more flexibility for fitting panels on difficult roofs, and work with any inverter. If your roof has uneven shading, then Tigo optimizers can increase output by up to 30%. They can also be retrofitted to old panels that are shade affected, fixing any performance lag and boosting your solar power production.

Long Term Warranties

Our Solar panels have a 25 year production warranty, no moving parts and only require occasional cleaning. They just work and keep on working for decades of reliable power production. We choose the best brands to give you the most value and reliability in solar technology today.

Slash Your Hot Water Bill with a Sanden Eco Plus System

If Essential Energy will let you export 5 kWh or more to the grid, then stacking your The Sanden Eco Plus® Hot Water Heat roof with as many solar panels as possible will work well for you. If export is limited, consider storing extra power in a battery bank for night time use. A combination of solar Pump System use up to 80% less for export, self use maximised during the day and battery storage is a great strategy to energy than conventional electric bring your bill closer to zero for medium households with 3-4 people. water heaters.

PSYCHIC SATURDAY

Jo Kennett TWO FINGAL Head surfers will feature in the third annual WSL Juraki Teams Challenge this Saturday March 10, run in partnership with Joel Parkinson and the World Surf League. The festivities will begin with a Welcome to Country ceremony and the Juraki Teams Challenge will then run alongside the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Trials. Fingal Head locals and event founders Mary and Joel Slabb, said eight professional surfers will team up with eight Indigenous surfers, including three locals, with a heat for the boys and one for the girls. The Indigenous surfers have been chosen from competitors in the Juraki Surf invitational held at Fingal Beach last August, as well as a contest at Bells Beach last May and Newcastle in February. “We find out on the day which pro surfers will be competing but last year we had Stephanie Gilmore, Tyler Wright, Laura Enever, Courtney Conlogue, Mick Fanning, John John Florence, Adriano de Souza and of course Parko,” Mrs Slabb told The Weekly. “It isn’t necessarily the best surfers chosen, it’s more about attitude, it’s the ones who push themselves and have the most fun. “We try to pick as many locals as possible. We keep an eye on surfers in the Indigenous contests during the year and so does the head judge.” Fingal Head’s Jalaan Slabb, who wants to be a professional surfer, is one of the locals chosen to compete. “It’s really fun hanging out with all the stars,” Jalaan said.

“Last year I teamed up with Steph Gilmore which was great. “I see her around all the time and she still gives me a lot of encouragement. “I went for a surf at Snapper Rocks a few weeks ago and John John was there testing some boards out and he remembered me and paddled up to say hi.” Jalaan’s cousin Julung, also from Fingal Head, partnered with Adriano de Souza last year and came third. “He was nice and really encouraging,” Julung said. “He gave me heaps of really good tips. “I also got to surf with Parko, Mick and John John in a free surf.” The third local surfer is Elanora High School student Charli Pell. “I was so excited and thankful to be picked,” Charli said. “I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone and just enjoying it. “I’d love to be a pro surfer but I just want to keep surfing anyway.” The Slabbs said that the event honours Churakai, a kind and brave Indigenous man, who was recognised as the original lifesaver of the Coolangatta and Greenmount area, as well as respecting the long held culture of the Elders mentoring the young in traditional ways - sharing history, knowledge and the custom. “The kids are mentored for the day by the professionals and are treated like pros for the day,” Mrs Slabb said. “Carissa Moore came up to us last year and said she’d really love to do it but had other commitments. “All the pros want to be involved which is fantastic.”

Be surprised and delighted that you came.

For information

SMILE STREET awarded their latest prize giveaway this week with Murwillumbah local Dave Hancox named the winner of five tickets to Bruno Mars at the Entertainment Centre on Thursday, March 15. Mr Hancox said he was delighted to be named the winner but said Bruno Mars may not be his cup-of-tea. “I’m extremely grateful to be named the winner in Smile Street’s latest competition prize giveaway,” he said. “But I think it might be best if I look for another more willing local or family to go in my place.” Mr Hancox said he was hoping to sell the tickets for a reasonable price in order to raise some funds to fix his ride-on mower.

The tickets were valued at $185 per ticket, however, Mr Hancox said if a local family wanted to go he’d be willing to negotiate. Bruno Mars tickets have recently sold fast with prices pushing towards $250 per ticket. “If there’s a local family wanting to go to this concert I’d be happy to talk to them about getting the best price,” he said. Smile Street owner Ramesh Sivabalan and the Smile Street team congratulated Mr Hancox and recognised that Bruno Mars would not be for everyone. “It’s great that Dave wants to sell the tickets to a local family,” he said. “While Bruno Mars is a huge star in the music world, his music might not be for everyone.” To find out more about the five tickets, which are in the standing section at the Entertainment Centre, please contact Smile Street Murwillumbah on (02) 8014 8686.

Great day out at the Tweed River Jockey Club race meet

The Riverview Hotel team enjoyed a staff party trackside in their best Hawaiian outfits

Amanda & Layla Fugar and Lucy & Madeline Whittle

A BRIEF break in the weather on Monday, March 5, provided the perfect conditions for the Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club Cup at the Tweed River Jockey Club. Numbers were strong for the race meet with several people converging on the iconic local track for a punt and day out. Murwillumbah trainer Matthew Dunn entered several races at the meet and took out two wins in races one and seven. Race one, the Brims Earthmoving maiden handicap over 1010m, was won by Hollydeen with Jeff Lloyd the jockey.

Three-year-old gelding Iggy The Moocher won the 1200m Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club Cup, bringing up a training double for Matthew Dunn with Jimmy Byrne the jockey. The final race saw the track play out on a soft seven with Winkler winning the final event over 2020m with Jason Taylor the pilot ,landing the prize for trainer John Everson. The next race meet for the Jockey Club will be the Anzac Day Race Day on April 25, sponsored by the Murwillumbah RSL Club.

TO QUOTE the great Max Walker ‘Yesssssssss, Welcome back’! The 2018 season is upon us and I for one cannot wait for it to kick off, I’ve had enough of the cricket (but David Warner did spice it up a bit for us this week). The World Cup was fantastic and the Aussies predictably were victorious but Tonga were the talking point and will continue to improve. Not too many off season debacles either apart from the Matt Lodge Broncos contract. I’m all for second chances and redemption but he needs to start paying that large fine and also acknowledge his indiscretion. Everyone is talking the Roosters up with plenty of interests in their million dollar recruits Cronk and Tedesco. They simply have to be a threat. Melbourne with Smith and Slater at the helm will feature again- they just do not know how to fail. What a great club. I’m keen on the Cowboys, the return of Thurston and Scott will make a huge difference and some quality recruits make them a real threat. Parramatta are being tipped in everyone’s top 4 and you would nearly have to agree with them. Who fills 5-8 I do not know and which coach’s head is on the chopping block before a ball is kicked? Griffin would have to be short priced considering he has the ‘full support of the board’!

Storm Raiders

Troy O’Keefe

at the Footy with Quinny I’m genuinely interested in the Titans. The new coach has brought a change and for us locals I hope they can feature and be a force in 2018. I tip a good season for the Warriors every year and they let me down – I won’t be doing it again. Souths have looked impressive during the pre-season under new coach Seibold and I like the forward pack St George are running out. I’m worried about my Broncos – I just can’t see them being a threat this year but I hope the great Wayne Bennett can prove me wrong. The local footy is not too far away either with some 9’s competitions and trials being held currently and a couple of Country Championship games being played also. A bit of a concern is the lack of numbers in the 14’s/15’s/16’s competitions around the area – what are our kids doing instead? I hope this gets sorted and the junior competition continues to thrive in this wonderful area. Thursday night kick off – can’t wait. See you at the Footy Quinny

Correction on rifle story

A CORRECTION is required to an article that appeared on page 33 of The Weekly (March 1) last week with the headline “Antique WWII rifle handed to 225 Cadet Unit”. The rifle was instead used during World War I and is known as a BSA Martini Cadet Rifle .310 made in 1910. Burringbar local Lex Philip first spoke to the Burringbar RSL Sub-branch president Phil Connor, regarding his thoughts around what he should do with the antique rifle, after Mr Philip discovered it stored away in his house. Mr Philip said he knew he couldn’t keep the rifle as it could be destroyed under Australian firearm laws. Mr Connor has been an RSL stalwart in Burringbar for decades and has been filling the roles of Secretary, Treasurer and currently President. It was Mr Connor who took the initiative to first find out how to prevent the rifle from being destroyed, then register the firearm to him at his own cost. A lot of research and many phone calls were made to military collectors and even the Light Horse, before Mr Connor contacted the 225 Cadet Unit in Murwillumbah. The rifle was then passed on to Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Roach. Mr Connor also organised for a brass plate describing its history and provenance to be mounted on the rifle. Finally, the Burringbar RSL Sub-branch is calling on readers to help identify the men in the photo below to make contact with the Sub-branch. Burringbar RSL is establishing a memorabilia display at the Sports Club.

THE ICONIC Mavis’s Kitchen at the base of Wollumbin-Mt Warning is hosting several special events in the next month including the first, titled The South American Fire Feast, on Saturday, March 10, from 5.30pm. The Fire Feast will consist of an impressive six courses, four of which feature dishes cooked directly on a custom-built fire pit, not far from the long table setting. Courses include fire cooked smashing pumpkins with pecans, tahini oil, goats cheese; flamed whole corn with manchego and fermented chilli salsa, and veal from the flame with hassel back potato, green beans and pepitas. Mavis’s Kitchen marketing manager Kristal Smith said the evening is designed to gather food loving folk from near and far to come together at long tables. “Under the stars or in the open-air barn, should the wet weather stick around, and enjoy the simulation of dining and sharing the way large Latin families do,” she said. “All the while devouring the variety of complex flavours that can come from using such a simple technique of cooking over the open flame.” Mavis’s Kitchen has also booked 2017 Bluesfest competition finalist The Ondre Davis Experience to entertain guests. “The three-piece jam band will entertain with their Jazz infused grooves and tasteful covers,” Kristal said. Beverages will be mixed and served by Husk Distillers who will show off their locally distilled Spiced Australian Agricole Rum & Pure Cane Rum, with a wine and beer list available for purchasing.

South Murwillumbah Post Office was an institution in Prospero Street when Katherine Butterworth and her husband bought it in 2008.

Katherine used her retailing, marketing and business skills to expand the Post Office’s product lines into an extensive range of children’s books, quality greeting cards and stationery. She embraced Australia Post’s push into technical products, banking facilities with all the major banks, money transfers, travel money and insurance plus photographs for passports and saw the business thrive. Katherine is proud to say South Murwillumbah Post Office won the Top Award for sales, business operations and customer service out of 80 Northern Region Licensed post offices for several months in 2016 and the top sales award for January and December 2017. Although the business was wiped out in the March 2017 flood she and her husband have rebuilt and modernised the shop and can offer even more services such as tax file numbers, police and identity checks and land title transactions. She believes the key to this Post Office’s outstanding success is “true” customer service and having fun with “all my wonderful customers who come from far and wide to support us and stuck with us during last year’s difficult times.”

Celebrating Six Years

What’s new and great at the market this month?

There is so much to love and enjoy about eating with the seasons and eating seasonally means enjoying the produce that is grown seasonally. This is why sometimes you cannot find a particular fruit or vegie at the market. If it isn’t at the market then the bet is that it is off season. Eating seasonally means that sometimes a particular fruit or vegie is only available very briefly – but oh what joy! Our exotic fruit adventure continues for maybe one more week with a few more mamey sapotes, only one soursop and a small supply of persimmons at Jumping Red Ant. These and black muscat grapes at Costanzo Apple stall have such a short season so enjoy them while you can. Their deliciously sweet new season royal galas are proving to be very popular and new season pears have arrived too. The biggest growing season for some of our farmers is autumn and that is why Tania Bruin told me last week she can’t wait for all their autumn produce to be available. Check out Summit Organics each week throughout the next month or so to see the gradual increase in their range of fresh produce gown at their Tyalgum farm. Eating seasonally and locally means that you have low road miles and produce that is only picked a day or two prior to appearing at the market stall. It has so much more flavour.

Eating seasonally and locally also means that we get excited when a seasonal stall return so we are thrilled that Nudgel Nuts has returned. Ian McRae who farms alpacas and has 4500 macadamia trees at his Billinudgel farm grows pesticide-free and insecticide-free macadamias. Back at the market a little earlier this year – yes we are so lucky – Ian is busy harvesting and processing this year’s crop. He offers premium macadamia nuts in five delicious ranges: original, dry roasted, chocolate coated, honey roasted and occasionally orange infused chocolate coated. Also very popular is Nudgel Nuts’ macadamia nut butter and macadamia sprinkles. Ian will be at the market throughout March but absent for several weeks in April as he and Leone travel through France so come in and stock up now. March Madness has arrived at the market this month so watch for all our crazy offers each week on our specials board displayed as you walk into the market. All Natural Meat Co is kick starting this month with their free range, chemical free pork pack at a fantastic price of only $99 for 10kg. Peter Smith told me that “as they have slowly improved and expanded our biodynamic and sustainable farming practices we find our sows producing happier, healthier and larger litters” so this has stimulated their great pork offer for March. Peter has suggested that you order now via email to

allnaturalmeatco@hotmail.com. And don’t forget to mention Murwillumbah Farmers’ Market as your pick up market. And if you love microgreens you have more choice now with take home trays of microgreens at Sylva Lining Organics or loose cut handfuls of radish, sunflower and pea sprouts at Summit Organics. Thank you for supporting our farming families and local producers at our market every Wednesday.

AN EXCITING adventure off the beaten track around north-eastern India is being organised by local tourism operator Nick Condon, who is calling on adventurous travellers to get in contact. Mr Condon is leading the trip in April to a part of north-eastern India that lies between Bhutan, Myanmar and Bangladesh. Having already travelled several times to India including Northern India, Mr Condon described the destination as both off the beaten track but also a true cultural experience. “I’m leading a trip to the seldom visited northeast corner of India in April,” he said. “The trip is called Northeast India Unplugged and this is a unique opportunity to explore a part of India that is still very much off the beaten track and offers some authentic cultural experiences.” The 15 day trip begins on April 7 and runs through until April 22. “We fly into Kolkata and spend a couple of days there staying at the historic Fairlawn Hotel, tasting some of the city’s culinary delights and experiencing some of the colonial charm the city is famous for,” he said. “Then the real adventure begins. “We will fly out to Shillong on April 9 (in Meghalaya state) and fly back 12 days later from Jorhat (in Assam state).

“During this time, we’re ‘winging it’ and making it up as we go along, which will allow us to have maximum flexibility with what we do, see and experience.” Mr Condon said he understood that this type of trip would not be for everyone but said those looking for a true adventure and a once in a lifetime travel experience would not be disappointed. “While this type of trip is not for everyone, it’s an incredibly enriching, surprising and rewarding way to travel,” he said. “Some of the things that the northeast offers include visiting the world’s largest river island with its ancient monasteries and stilt houses, going on safari looking for the Asian onehorned rhino and the majestic Bengal tiger and then there’s the tea.

“Assam is famous for growing some of the most premium quality teas in the world. “The area is also home to around 70 different tribes all with their own unique customs.” Mr Condon said one of the best aspects of the trip is the group size. “I’m keeping the group size to a maximum of four as I want to provide people with a more intimate and culturally immersive experience,” he said. “Keeping the group to this size allows us to do things bigger groups can’t do and often gives us access to some boutique accommodation options usually only reserved for the independent traveller.” To find out more about the trip of a lifetime phone: 0422 930 458

FLICKERFEST 2018 For all fans of Flickerfest, good news, it is coming to town again..! Celebrating its 27th edition, Flickerfest is Australia’s leading Academy and BAFTA accredited short film festival, introducing short films that are amongst the best in the world. Held annually, the festival tours the whole country, and Murwillumbah has been one of its destinations since 2015. The two line-ups coming to town this year are the Best of International and the Best of Australian shorts. Highlights from the Best of Australian Shorts include the beautifully crafted and creative animation Lost Property Office about people who at times become as lost as the items in the office – a film that was short-listed for an Academy Award. Also, the dramatic and inspiring Miro, an Aboriginal Western short film staring Mark Coles Smith; and the delightfully quirky and creatively animated Martha The Monster, starring the voices of actress Rose Byrne and her husband Bobby Cannavale. The highlights of the Best Of International Shorts program include the moving and insightful Academy Award nominated All Of Us (Watu Wote) from Germany, based on a true story that sees Christian and Muslim bus passengers in Kenya join forces during an attack by terrorists; the hilarious An Imagined Conversation With Kanye West and Stephen Hawking from Canada in which over a Chinese food picnic at the beach Stephen Hawking and Kanye West discuss dance moves, Drake and the art of divination; and the stunning short out of New Zealand The World In Your Window, which was awarded Best International Short Film at the Flickerfest Awards ceremony in Bondi in January. So, keep your weekend free of other engagements and get ready for a short but intense feast/festival of short films..!

THE MURWILLUMBAH Philharmonic Choir and Guest Soloists will perform a People’s “Messiah” with excerpts from this well known Oratorio. First performed in Dublin at Easter in 1742 and receiving its London premier a year later. After an initially modest public reception the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one the best known choral works in Western music. Handel’s MESSIAH is glorious to hear and this is a rare opportunity to listen to it sung by the Choir, Soloists and you under the Musical Direction of Heather Martin OAM. We invite those in the audience who have performed the work to join us in singing the Choruses. Copies of the Score for the People’s Messiah will be available on the day for $6. Please call 0423628592 to reserve your copy.

Shaping metal with Jack Quilter OUTSTANDING MURWILLUMBAH sculpter and renowned artist Jack Quilter is the featured Murwillumbah Art Trail 2018 (MAT18) artist of the week. A passionate local, Jack has been fine tuning his love of sculpting for more than a decade and produces a range of artworks often from reclaimed metals. The Weekly caught up with Jack to talk about his latest works as well as his inclusion in MAT18 in May this year. “I have been living and working around the Tweed Shire for several years, based in Hastings Point and my factory in South Murwillumbah,” he said. “I have been practicing metalwork sculpture since 2005, I make artworks using materials gathered from around the caldera, much of these materials are sourced from cane and cattle farms, scrap metal yards and friends. “I am currently working on a series of garden sculptures titled stars and suns

constructed and welded using old farm iron and unusual metal objects.” Jack said he hopes to present most of his works during MAT18 as well as Swell Sculpture Festival in Currumbin. “I’m really excited about being a part of MAT18 this year,” he said. “It’s a great event and features some incredible artists from across the Tweed Shire. “During MAT18 my latest works will be on exhibition at my sculpture studio in Holstons Lane, South Murwillumbah. “I’m also looking forward to exhibiting at Swell Sculpture Festival in Currumbin on the Gold Coast. “I’ve been exhibiting with Swell on and off since 2005 and this year I am creating a piece that captures the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. “Standing over three meters in diameter, the morning sun will form and be framed by this intricate metal assemblage.” To find out more about Jack and his metal sculptures visit his studio on Holstons Lane.

Walk to raise funds for rescue chopper “There is also a barbeque at the finish line at Cabarita Headland and a photographer will be on hand to take photos of the participants. “We expect that most walkers should be done by lunchtime. “This walk has a bit of everything as far as scenery goes - there are beautiful stretches of coastline that people don’t normally see. “Even locals will be surprised at some of the places they will be able to see.” Mr Huish said although the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is based in Lismore the charity is local. “All money raised stays locally and in turn helps us to support the whole community,” he said. “Each year we have to fundraise $3.5 million so taking an entry in the event helps to fund that and ultimately helps to save lives in the community. “There is also a platform online called Everyday Hero Event Page where people can nominate a charity, so you can register your name on the page and get people to sponsor you, family and friends for instance, for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter fund.”

THE INAUGURAL Tweed Coast Charity Walk will be held on Sunday March 25 to raise much needed funds for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. The walk starts at the Fingal Rovers Surf Life Saving Club between 8am and 8.30am and continues through Kingscliff, Salt Village before ending with a barbeque at Norries Headland, Cabarita Beach. Zeke Huish, Regional Marketing Manager for the rescue helicopter said he is excited to introduce the event to the area. “It’s the first time on the Tweed Coast,” Mr Huish said. “It’s a unique event because you are walking entirely along beaches and around headlands. “It’s a very social way to enjoy your Sunday while helping to raise funds to support the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. “These walks really cater for people of all abilities. Some run it and go in the first group and some walk but it’s for everyone. “In terms of ability you can do a short stint if you’ve never done anything like it before. “There is one start line and three finish lines at Kingscliff, Salt and Norries Headland.” Mr Huish said there were checkpoints along the way where people can stop to rest.

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 Cutaway section of a typical electric hot water heater

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

“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!

THE NAME ‘Winders’ has a long and prominent history on the Tweed Coast including at Bolton Clarke’s Winders Lodge residential aged care community at Banora Point. Former Gold Coast Deputy Mayor and Twin Towns Services Club founding Chairman, the late Mick Winders, was a driving force behind establishment of the aged care community. On Tuesday, March 6, his legacy was celebrated by Winders Lodge staff, residents and guests with the installation of a memorial plaque donated by the Twin Towns Club. Winders Lodge residential manager

Michael O’Connor said he couldn’t be prouder to have Mick’s face greeting visitors to his community. “Mick was adamant the club gave back to the community,” he said. “The contributions of the club extended to preschools, surf clubs, sports clubs, palliative care centres, and in our case aged care.” Mr O’Connor said above all, Mick’s most valuable contribution was the development of Winders Lodge and Cottages. One grateful resident who attended, said the Winders community continues to thrive, as does the Twin Towns Club just across the road (where Mick famously pulled the first pint behind the bar in 1957).

Tweed surfer Zahli makes Roxy Pro Trials Mick Winders honoured Jo Kennett CASUARINA TEENAGER Zahli Kelly will have a chance to surf in the World Championship Tour Roxy Pro on Saturday March 10, when she competes in the Roxy Pro trials at Snapper Rocks. “I’d love to win the trials but I just want to surf a couple of smart heats and hopefully come out on top,” Zahli told the Weekly. “I’m feeling good, surfing well and feeling comfortable with my equipment at the moment. “I ride Al Emery boards and they’re going really well. “I’m looking forward to the event. It’s a cool experience surfing Snapper with just three others out in the water.” Zahli’s entry into the prestigious event came courtesy of her win last year in the Australasian Pro Junior Championship. It will be her second appearance at the contest after becoming one of the youngest females, at just 13, to win a wildcard into the event last year. The 14-year old has had a big lead up to the Roxy Pro trials, competing in four events this year already, some against the world’s best. Zahli, who has one of the best air games in the business, came 14 in the Mothernest Tweed Coast Pro and made Round 3 of the QS 6000 Vissla Sydney Surf Pro at Manly. She was knocked out in Round 3 of the Grandstand Sports Clinic Women’s Pro in Newcastle by WCT veterans Dimity Stoyle and event finalist Malia Manuel and came second in the Key Sun Zinke Pro Junior contest at Manly after a dominant performance throughout the event. “It was great to make the main round in the QS 6000s though I would have liked to go further, but I’m still pretty happy with my

results,” Zahli said. “I competed against Chelsea Tuach in Newcastle who was on the WCT last year and won and then I surfed against Malia Manuel, who came second in Manly. “That was right when the surf jumped up and it was hard because the surfed turned from three foot to eight foot so it was really hard to find where to sit because it had all changed. “In Manly I surfed in Round 3 against Caroline Marks who has just qualified as the youngest ever rookie in the WCT and is really good. “I got highest wave score but didn’t get a backup.” Zahli’s family moved from the Sunshine Coast to Casuarina for the more consistent surf and easy access to the High Performance Centre gym for training and her shaper and coach, who both live in Lennox Heads. Zahli does home schooling which allows her to get ahead in her work and travel to compete.

“I’m in Year 9 this year but doing Year 10 English and Maths,” she said. Kelly’s coach, former dual world junior champion James Wood, thinks that Kelly has a big future ahead of her. “She’s still very young but has a really good chance of making it onto the WCT in the future,” he said. “She has a long way to go but at the rate she is progressing she should have a good repertoire by the time she’s 18.” “We do one or two coaching sessions a week and the work we are doing is very surf specific - mostly working on technique and on heats and contest strategies. “We’re looking at the big picture of her career. “We don’t want her there in the end just making up numbers, we want her to be really competitive. “She’s doing really well so far so we just want to keep her progressing and improving.”

Bowls Notes CUDGEN LEAGUES M.B.C’s. recent Major Fours final between Graham Border (S), Granville Woodhouse, Fred McConnell, Mick Ryan and Jim Gibson (S), Gary Pickett, Darby Lowe, and Dave Chartres proved to be a hard day at the office with the extra challenge of a newly renovated green, while running well - but seemed a few seconds too slow, added to the equation. Team Border was out of the blocks early to hold a handy 5 shot lead after five ends with the opposition then warmed up to come back strongly to keep the score on an even keel. However, Gibson’s team then dropped a 5 on the 10th end to be 11-8 down but came back to be on 16-15 on the 16th end. In a super challenge over the last five ends, Border & Co. were able to hold their lead and claim victory with a reasonable surplus. Congrats to both teams on a grand performance. Not to be left out of final’s excitement, Cudgen ladies also conducted their Fours Championship final. Bev Hall (S),

with Judy Tuckey Rosalie Lowe, Lyn Pickett and Jan Gillie were challenging Liz Fleming (S), Joy Ashford, Lorna Arnott and Isabelle Nipperess for top honours. Hall and Co., obviously on a mission, took the lead early and in keeping team Fleming at bay throughout the game, charged on to take the championship with a solid margin. District Women’s Pennant got off to a good start last week with all games scheduled completed without interference from old “Huey”. Grade 2, with only 3 clubs participating, saw Round 1 result in a draw between Cabarita and Cudgen Leagues. Grade 3 results after 2 Rounds with 5 clubs entered has Byron Bay in the lead. Brunswick Heads and Kingscliff are close behind. Pottsville is 1 point shorter in fourth place and Condong is yet to score points. 6 clubs are contesting the Grade 4 Flag. Ocean Shores is on top after 2 Rounds. Pottsville second with Kingscliff and Condong close behind. Cabarita hold fifth position with Cudgen Leagues on the bottom rung. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

ON

WELL THE circus has rolled into town, with some of the world’s top surfers warming up for the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro’s, starting on Sunday, March 11. The action at the venue starts on Saturday with the Wildcard Trials, with some of the Gold and Tweed Coast’s best up and coming surfers vying for a spot in the main event. There is one Wildcard spot for the Quiksilver Pro, and one for the Roxy Pro, and sixteen surfers in each of the trials battling for those spots. The trials are made up of local state champions, top rated local WQS surfers, and sponsored surfers from here and overseas. Mitch Parkinson is keen to make the cut after winning the 2017 Queensland Title to earn his spot in the trials, club mate Piper Harrison got her spot winning the Queensland Women’s Open Title. Queensland Junior Champions get a shot, and Snapper Rocks Surfriders get a surfer in each of the Trials as well, so Snapper is more than well represented in the trials. The swell prediction is looking great from Thursday, and it looks as though it could be pumping on Saturday, with

current predictions looking like a gradual fade in swell leading into the week. But the monsoon trouth is very active and the chance of a cyclone forming could be on the cards. So plenty of swell by the looks, but not plenty of sand with Cyclone Gita taking a big bite from the sand behind the rock at Snapper. The action could be from Rainbow Bay to Greenmount. With the Commonwealth Games set up at the end of Coolangatta Beach, Kirra is out of bounds. In all of this there are some great stories ready to unfold. Mick’s last Quiky Pro, will Stephanie Gilmore start the year with a win again? Will John John get his first win at Snapper? Will Medina get the crowd of Rainbow de Jeneiro screaming and dancing? Will Kelly Slater be on point to really show those young whipper snappers a thing or two? Well all these questions and more will be answered by this time next week. It’s going to be fun!

Ray Gleave Still King of the Surf

KINGSCLIFF LOCAL Ray Gleave (pictured above) is once again the king of the Australian Longboard Surfing Open taking out two divisions in Sunday’s finals of the Australian Longboard Open, surfed in waist high conditions at Kingscliff’s South Beach. With the Main Beach looking like a millpond organisers made the decision to move the action south of the bridge to take advantage of bigger waves. Contest Organiser Sean McKeown had already made the decision to run the LQS Open Events in the best conditions possible, with those two competitions finalized on Friday morning. Coolangatta’s Dane Pioli scored the win and the allimportant points on the Australian ratings while the women’s

event went to Hawaiian-based world champion Honolua Blomfield. Gleave was one of a number of surfers to make it to two finals but the only one to win both. Early in the day he had blitzed the field in the Over 50s event finishing more than two points ahead of Ian Pearson (who caused an upset by beating the Kingscliff surfer in the same event last year). It was sweet revenge for Gleave who scored 12.33, ahead of Pearson with 10.06. He then backed up to win the last event of the day the 10foot Stand-up Paddle Board with a score of 11.60 ahead of Kiwi David Storck. A regular visitor to the event this was Storck’s best result. Organisers were happy with the event, including the show and shine as well. They are looking to make the Australian Longboard open bigger and better next year.

North Narrabeen Take Out the 34th Kirra Teams Challenge After commuting in the Kirra Teams Challenge from the very first event, North Narrabeen finally took home the title and the the Kirra Eagle. They became the first Sydney team to take the title, and as their President said at the presentation, “This is the one every club wants to win, yeah there is the Boardriders Battle, but this one means much more to us.” Narrabeen won with 7 wins and one 3rd place, from NASA (North Avalon) in 2nd, and Le-Ba (Lennox/Ballina) in 3rd. Snapper finished 7th, with great performances from Cabaret in 10th and Kingscliff in 13th. 36 clubs from Victoria to Noosa competed, and it will be bigger and better next year. A great job by the Kirra Surfriders, Next up they will be putting the 11th Kirra Juniors Teams Challenge, with a stand alone Women’s team challenge as well moving to a 3 day format, usually held in the first weekend of the September school Holidays. Big week coming, I’ll catch you in the waves!

Winning Corsair Minnow crewed by Taj Krasna Kynan Luescher and Bill Fenelon

Change of fortune for Chinderah challenge winners

THE TWEED Valley Sailing Club's usual "Chindy Challenge" Race Day was held last Sunday, March 4, with beautiful weather and water clear to the bottom made up for the previous weeks cancelled race. A 16 boat fleet with 28 crew members including six Corsairs and five Lasers sailed in 10 to 13 knot NE wind, which made for a relatively quiet afternoon on the river. There was plenty of time to enjoy the crystal clear water as stingrays were jumping and a dolphin or two to complete the perfect picture. A different course to the usual three laps round the buoys, from Fingal up passed the Chindy Tavern (the race sponsors) and back downstream again to the finish line. Not so quiet at the start line as the boats jostled for the best position some losing out

and hitting the start buoy and having to go round to start again. After flying into the lead at the start Corsair 104 Melita III with new Matt Andrew's Sails had a few set backs losing the lead after being forced to do a U-turn to get back to a missed mark but caught up again until another channel marker got the better of skipper Alison Blatcher. Crew Peter Ross and Richard Roberts will no doubt be giving directions next time. Fastest to the finish (first "on scratch" as they say) was Glenn Slight on Maricat "Osprey" in 89 minutes. The monohull scratch winner was only a minute behind, a very pleasing result for Mauri Meyer (Laser). The winning Corsair also had a change of fortune from the last few races - Bill Fenelon on 199 Minnow with Kynan Luescher and

Between the Flags

Taj Krasna (an all Fingal crew) were stoked to finished in 93 minutes. Corsair "Keenas" skippered by Mark Reynolds with crew Craig Foley were missing their usual for'd hand, Taj Krasna, as he'd jumped ship to sail on Minnow this week. He could have made all the difference to them as they finished only 35 seconds behind Minnow. They will be back together for the Big River SC Annual Regatta and Corsair Eastern State Titles down at Harwood on the Clarence this weekend. A very big weekend for the Corsair sailors - look out for the report next week. The overall winner of this year's Chindy Challenge on time corrected for class of boat results will be announced at the club's annual dinner in May - although the bets are on that it could be an impulsive result.

It was also a good day to welcome two new skippers and boats to the club. Dave Robinson and son Cooper, on their NS14, and Joe Trueman on his red sailed Mirror. Joe was suprised to discover he had an onwater coach - his Dad was on the VMR boat standing by with a few words of advice. There's always room for more boats and more crew, beginners or experts, so you if you have a desire to get on the water under sail come on down. Juniors and Try Sailing will be back again on Sunday morning, March 18, with a race in the afternoon. Email tvscmail@ gmail.com to book, only $5 per session and membership not required for first three sails. More information visit: www.tvsc.com.au

Ethan Hartwig in action

Jo Kennett 16-YEAR-OLD Casuarina boxer Ethan Hartwig has taken out his fourth Queensland title to qualify for the International Boxing Association (AIBA) Australian Championships in Perth from March 21 to 24. Hartwig took out the Youth Division under 91 kilogram state title, adding to a swag of awards for the young apprentice carpenter. He is the Australian under 19s junior division 80 kg national champion. His mother, Emma Hartwig, said that if Ethan wins he will automatically qualify for the Youth Olympics in Argentina in 2018, the Youth World Championships 2018 and the Oceania Youth Championships 2018. The AIBA is the only direct pathway to the Commonwealth and Olympic Games for boxing. Ethan boxes under Olympic coach Chris Carden, considered one of the best in the world, at Platinum Boxing Nerang. He trains six days a week alongside Rohan Murdock who is currently ranked number nine in the world. Mrs Hartwig said that Ethan trains extremely hard. “He’s a very powerful boxer, his strength, fitness and determination are second to none.

“He’s also a very humble, placid kid and nothing bothers him.” The majority of Ethan’s overseas and interstate trips are self-funded with his family all chipping in to cover the ongoing costs but Mrs Hartwig said they couldn’t do it without the sponsorship of Casuarinabased Primary Pest Control. “They have been fantastic and supported Ethan since day one and we just couldn’t cover all the costs without their help. “Many people think that Ethan has the ability and talent to be a future heavyweight world champion. Mrs Hartwig said Ethan’s brother Cooper had been a great support as Ethan doesn’t have a licence. “He drives Ethan to and from work which is such a great help. “He’s been there for Ethan at work too and helped him settle into construction. Ethan’s father Brad takes him from work to the gym in Nerang in peak hour traffic. “He gets up at 4.40am and doesn’t get home until 8.30pm at night, then has dinner and goes to bed exhausted,” Mr Hartwig told The Weekly. “It’s a huge effort for a 16-year-old.” “He does that 5 days a week and trains Saturdays but never whinges. We’re massively proud.”
