Councillor says evidence “stacked up” after water extraction approved at 350 Rowlands Creek Road “If it wasn’t for these local industries many of our roads wouldn’t have existed and likely would not have been created,” he said. Cr Allsop stressed the roads throughout the Tweed Valley have “provided service to industries, businesses and residents alike for a long time and now”. “There are new industries going to appear from time to time utilising these old industry routes and realistically they will have the same planning instruments to assess them,” he said. “Are we prepared to start cutting businesses off when they actually fit within the guidelines? “All Tweed’s businesses contribute to Tweed’s economy and we are careful about the precedents we may set, precedents that may affect future businesses that wish to emerge within permissible zonings.” Cr Allsop said the recommendation for approval was “not about feelings or opinion”. “We do though have the right to use our personal minds gauge as to how we believe the proponent’s case stacks up and would likely win in court if the proponent thought it was worthy of a court battle,” he said. Cr Allsop referred to recent court cases in which he said Council’s legal bill stands at “approximately $1.6 million”. “These costs awarded against Council for moving against recommendations,” he said. “What if we were to refuse an application, this application would likely go to court and win in court because the facts are the application stacked up. “Discipline for following guidelines and rules is a requirement for staff, it’s also healthy for approach for Councillors to respect and consider these rules.”

Three contenders for Tweed Shire mayoralty By Jonathon Howard TWEED SHIRE Councillors are set to vote for the position of Tweed Shire Mayor during their next meeting on Thursday, September 20, with two Councillors putting their hands up for the top spot and current Mayor Katie Milne was also expected to recontest the role. Councillors vote on the mayoral position every two years and deputy mayor each year. In the case of a split decision the mayoralty role is drawn from a hat, which was the case when Mayor Milne was first nominated for the position.

Mayor Milne has held the mayoralty position since 2015 and looks likely to secure the role again if she collects the necessary votes. However, both Cr Warren Polglase and Cr James Owen have thrown their hats into the ring and nominated themselves to be mayor. Cr Pryce Allsop said he believes Cr Polglase is the man for the job and emphasised his years of experience and passion for the Tweed Shire. “We need a change of mayor,” Cr Allsop told The Weekly. “I believe Warren is the man for the job, he’s got such passion for the Tweed Shire and his years of experience would make him an ideal mayor.”

Cr James Owen has also put his hand up for the mayoralty position but is unlikely to attract the numbers to secure the role. Cr Polglase told The Weekly that he will nominate for the mayoralty position but realised the numbers may fall with Mayor Milne. “I think the numbers may fall with Katie, but if we find there’s a split decision it could result in a drawing from the hat,” he said. The Weekly attempted to contact Cr Ron Cooper, Cr Chris Cherry and Cr Reece Byrnes, but they were unavailable prior to the print deadline. The Weekly will provide a follow up for next week’s edition.

of constituents that voted for you and have some face to face time with us, chatting as we walk down this road together.” Mr Dixon told The Weekly that he’s so far only received confirmation from Cr Ron Cooper to attend, however he thanked Cr Pryce Allsop for a comprehensive email response. Meanwhile, Tweed Shire Councillor Pryce Allsop, who voted in favour of the motion, has sought to ease concerns, stressing that the application “stacked up” and the ruling avoided possible court action. Cr Allsop said he took the advice of Tweed and Uki locals and has travelled out to Rowlands Creek Road from the Uki Memorial to the applicant’s property, owned by Jack Hallam, a former Labor minister. “There are a few repairs required before any transportation is allowed from Jack Hallam’s property,” Cr Allsop said. Cr Allsop also outlined the short distance required to drive to Kyogle Road, where larger trucks are already permitted. “The distance of travel is very limited, each journey takes only approximately three minutes, maybe four each way, so within a 24-hour period a total of thirtysix minutes per day should be the likely minimum and a maximum of forty-five minutes,” Cr Allsop said. “I believe that Tweed Shire Council staff got this right, Rowlands Creek Road rates relatively well. “Tweed roads were built by the settlers and we have some journeys within the Tweed Shire that require our attention when traveling them.” Cr Allsop also said that these roads were built by the dairy, logging and sugar industries.

A PRIVATE CREMATION

By Jonathon Howard TENSIONS ARE running high amongst many Tweed Valley residents opposed to the recent approval of the Rowlands Creek Road water extraction operation as three Tweed Shire Councillors have expressed support for a rescission motion that’s unlikely to have the numbers to roll the approval back. The application to extract 24 megalitres of groundwater for the purposes of bottling at 350 Rowlands Creek Road was approved following four votes to three during a Council meeting on Thursday, September 6. The motion was recommended for approval by Council staff, who had outlined the need to upgrade several sections of Rowlands Creek Road to improve road safety. Council staff also highlighted hydrological studies which indicated the extraction would not impact groundwater supplies or local creeks, although this study has been disputed by the Tweed Water Alliance who have compiled a separate hydrologist study. Following the approval, The Weekly has received several letters and comments expressing concern for the future traffic conditions of Rowlands Creek Road, with one resident inviting all Councillors to join in a community walk from the Uki Memorial park to 350 Rowlands Creek Road on Sunday, September 16. “Councillors, I would like to invite all of you to walk the distance between Uki war memorial and Jack Hallam’s property with me, and many of us from the Rowlands Creek Road and broader Uki community,” the invitation from Uki resident Greg Dixon reads. “I don’t believe it would be a bad idea for you to connect with the community

This is not David vs Goliath

I have recently attended, for the first time, a session of the council’s meetings. The issue on debate was the water mining at Rowlands Creek Road. It was exhilarating and depressing at the same time. I was so impressed by the wisdom and clarity of mind of Chris Cherry and Katie Milne – the only two women in the council by the way – who spoke clearly and loudly about the mission of the council being the protection of public interest. I was so discouraged by the complete lack of common sense and commitment to public interest shown by most of the other council members. How is it possible to privilege the interest of one individual at the expenses of a whole community? This is not a case of a David versus Goliath battle, it seems to me just a case of greed versus the protection of our environment and community. Maria Barbieri, Uki

The whole state is in drought

So we have the whole of NSW declared in drought, the new Hillsong cult evangelist PM Reverend Morrison asking all Australians to pray for rain as his only harebrained solution. We have the Tweed Shire Council calling for ratepayers to reduce water usage due to the drought whilst approving water mining in the shire. We have the Labor Councillor Reece Byrnes now voting in favor of Jack Hallam’s (an ex Labor minister) water mining DA. We have Cr Allsop openly telling DA applicants to breach the conditions of their applications in order to assure their business continues whilst the TSC General Manager allows all of this to happen. Of course we have all learnt to expect this sort of behavior from such a Council. Andrew Bennett, Murwillumbah

Like us on Facebook

I am flummoxed and grateful to the Tweed Valley Weekly for highlighting the very confusing and controversial messages our Tweed Shire Council is sending out to it’s electorate (Thursday September 6, page 3 and 5) On page 3 it is reported Tweed Shire Councillors are likely to pass the DA on Rowlands Creek Rd to allow water extraction to commence with Councillor Reece Byrnes keen to support, thus paving the way for this approval. But then on page 5 it is reported Tweed Shire Council are encouraging its electorate, its residents, to save water given ongoing issues with the weir, (previous problems with contaminated water) and the threat of drought. So these are very opposing messages from our Tweed Shire Council. The money spent to improve the weir, to increase dam walls, to collect, store and treat water-these costs to our community are ongoing and enormous. So what benefit to our residents, and what mixed messages, when Tweed Shire Council even consider allowing any DA to extract water to be passed; for this precious pristine underground water to be shipped out-no doubt to be packaged in plastic bottles, while our Tweed community is in or on the verge of a water crisis. Regardless of hydrologist’s reports, we don’t really know the impact of 20 years water extraction on our rainforest creeks and bores (that feed into our highly managed resident water supply), as this is a new mass “farming” trend on our Earth. We do not have hindsight or past previous practices to rely on, certainly not on the scale of present water extraction, local or worldwide practices. So I query any hydrologist’s evidence-based report. In fact, only very few seem to gain with water extraction; the landholder and the trucking companies, while our community clearly loses in so many ways; be it our own potential supply of pristine water (instead of treated dam water), more trucks on our narrow roads, and the uncertain future of our creeks. Who else gains with this DA to extract water? With 200 submissions objecting this particular application, how is this justified Tweed Shire Council? You represent us, not the developer, or does history repeat? Contrary to Reece Byrnes faith in the hydrogist’s evidence-based report, and the TSC Planners and Engineers support of this report, we don’t have evidence of the impact on the water table into the future?

How can we? But in the future, when we do get evidence of water table impact, will it be too late? Our future is in your hands Tweed Shire Council, and it’s a frightening outlook when there is so much disparity in our council chambers; councillors that are developer driven or those that are environment driven. I know which side I trust and it’s not the quick money side. If you want sensitive development to make our Tweed great by looking after its valuable assets for the long term and not sold out to the quick short-term buck, be very careful who you vote in. Caryl Scott, Banora Point

Hospital rezoning by stealth

Following lobbying begun in earnest 2011 the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) Board endorsed the Tweed Heads Hospital Redevelopment Master Plan (MP) (December, 2013). The local newspaper reported December 14, the MP submitted to the Minister outlined $211.6m for expansion to the intensive care unit, emergency department, oncology services, maternity wards and mental health services. Stage 1 of the three part expansion was to be completed by 2017, Chair of the Medical Staff Council stating, “planning was well-rounded, scientific, clinician-led exercise. The MP was fiscally and socially responsible and a staged investment process”. September 2016 the NNSWLHD Chair stated he was stunned by the projected population growth in the 65-85 age group by 35 per cent and in Tweed Heads the projected population growth over 65 years by 50 per cent, with a Board member stating that this supported the Tweed Hospital redevelopment as being the number one priority for the NNSWLHD. In the days prior to the 2015 State election $48m was promised for the Tweed Hospital, however available funding was not signed off until more than two years later. Here we are with another election looming and there has been flashy media releases that there is now to be $534m for a new hospital on State Significant Farmland. However, the only record of any actual money to date is $2.5m allocated in the 2017/18 budget for the ‘development of a business case and Expression of Interest for a greenfield site’. There is no reference in the minutes of the NNSWLHD Board Budget meeting 2018/19 of money for a new hospital, only the works relevant to the Tweed Hospital.

Further, our State MP’s glossy letter box drop on the Budget 2018/19 makes no reference of funding for a new hospital, only the continued funding for The Tweed Hospital. Considering political allies’ several failed attempts to rezone the Cudgen farmlands for development, is the captains call for a hospital on the Cudgen farmlands designated as State Significant Development enabling our State/Local long-term key strategic planning instruments to be thrown out the window simply a rezoning exercise by stealth. Lindy Smith, Tweed Heads

Politics in Canberra a kerfuffle

I would like to point out the kerfuffle in Canberra does not have as much impact on this region than the useless state Liberal National Party. They rush to sell or lease our assets (known as asset recycling) to developers ASAP before we kick them out next election. They can afford a billion dollars to demolish a perfectly good stadium which no one attends rather than repairing local footy grounds because that doesn’t suit the big end of town. Half that money could get our much-needed train back but then how could their developer mates claim all that beautiful Crown Land. Anyone who votes Liberal National is voting for the loss of our precious farmland and other state assets. I vote for policies not personalities. There was not one word about the drought from the Liberal Nationals until the media finally started reporting about it. The National Party is more concerned about clearing land mines and fracking than our hardworking farmers. I thought they were created for country Australia however that stopped when they ceased calling themselves the Country Party. They don’t care about the bush, just their own gravy train. Wendy Maclachlan, Murwillumbah

Elderly drivers need to see

I’m writing in regards to the petition of mandatory testing for drivers over 75. I was driving down Cane Road two weeks ago coming past the two intersections in Murwillumbah. I was sticking to the speed limit, when a car pulled out. I pulled my Hyundai to the left and just about came off the road with one hand on the horn. The car missed the back of the Hyundai by a whisper. I pulled over and asked the driver, who stopped behind me, what where you doing?

He was elderly and he looked puzzled, he said I looked but I didn’t see you. I was furious our lives were close to be changed forever and all he could say was I didn’t see you. Not good enough. The cane had been cut, there is a clear view and a Hyundai iMax is a large vehicle. It was full with children. Bring in extra testing for the aged population. Before anymore lives are lost needlessly such as Dann’s. Claire White, Murwillumbah

Driving can be a matter of life

I do support greater testing and scrutiny of older drivers, this carelessness and disregard occurs to often and it is a matter of life or death. Not something to lightly sentence. Older drivers need to take responsibility of their capability to get behind the wheel, just as any other driver should. And we are in a day and age where transport is amazing, there should be no excuse. I do not understand how anyone could live with themselves after their carlessness took away someone’s life, someone’s son, brother, father, grandson, grandfather, uncle, nephew, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, aunty or niece. Elderly members of my family 100 per cent support the greater testing and scrutiny of older drivers and share the same opinion as me. Bree Clark, Tweed

A big thank you to everyone especially Wally and Tina

After living 34 years in such a beautiful place as Murwillumbah and enjoying wonderful people we want to pass on our thanks to everyone. We have such great memories from our times spent with the View Club, quilting groups, Rotary, Riding for Disabled, St Vincent de Paul and our travel groups. Thank you all so much. We especially want to thank Wally Trankle and Tina from Professionals Real Estate for helping us to sell our assets and assisting us in so many other ways, especially at some difficult times. Nothing was a trouble to them and we will miss their professionalism, their help and their friendship. Thanks everyone.

Hospital development could be stalled until early 2019 By Jonathon Howard A REPRESENTATIVE from the Valuer General’s office has recently confirmed to The Weekly a compulsory acquisition notice may be issued soon for the Tweed Valley Hospital site on State Significant Farmland at 771 Cudgen Road, Cudgen. The indication of the potential to compulsorily acquire the land at 771 Cudgen Road follows widespread speculation that negotiations had broken down between the current landowner and NSW Health Infrastructure, who have been unable to agree on a price. A spokesperson for the Valuer General told The Weekly a proposed acquisition notice for the site had not yet been received from Health Infrastructure. “The Valuer General has not received a proposed acquisition notice for 771 Cudgen Road, Cudgen,” the spokesperson said. “NSW Health Infrastructure has notified the Valuer General’s representative that a proposed acquisition notice for 771 Cudgen Road, Cudgen may be issued.” This comes as NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard told News Corp this week that the formal acquisition process could take until the new year to complete if a price could not be agreed on. “I understand that Health Infrastructure expects to either arrive at a mutually agreed price or to complete the formal acquisition process in the absence of a formal agreement, no later than this year or early in the new year,” he said.

The potential delay comes as Health Infrastructure recently submitted a preliminary application to the Department of Planning and Environment, who will be assessing the project as a state significant development. The application has requested S e c r e t a r y ’s E nv i ro n m e n t a l Assessment Requirements (SEARs) which will be used to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the major development. The development will comprise two stages with the first a concept development application for early and enabling works, while the second stage is the design, construction and operation of the hospital. According to the application, hospitals are prohibited from being developed on land zoned agricultural (RU1) and Health Infrastructure will need to lodge an application to rezone the 16 hectares of State Significant Farmland. This rezoning will remove Tweed Shire Council’s development controls for the site including height limit restrictions and floor space ratios. Health Infrastructure said the design of the hospital will “establish an appropriate building height that balances the clinical and functional needs of the hospital whilst suitably responding to contextual, amenity and urban design considerations”. They also suggested the topography of the site may mean there are geotechnical constraints which could affect the design of the hospital. The small residential zone to the north of the site that is flood prone is not required for the project according

to Health Infrastructure and the Coastal Wetlands Environmental Protection zone will remain. This “will be preserved outside of the development area to protect the environmental biodiversity and provide views and amenity for the hospital campus”. The application outlines the planning for the hospital will allow for future growth, including a scenario of doubling the number of beds from an initial estimate of around 450 beds. Health Infrastructure told The Weekly the site works will commence once acquisition and planning processes are completed, with the target of beginning early and enabling works by the end of 2018 and having the hospital completed in 2022 and open in 2023. “ T h e n e g o t i at i o n a n d s i t e acquisition processes are being undertaken in accordance with t h e L a n d A c q u i s i t i o n ( Ju s t Te r m s C o m p e n s at i o n ) A c t 1991,” a spokesperson for Health Infrastructure said. “In parallel, master planning and initial building concepts are being developed and will be placed on public exhibition as part of the planning application process later in 2018.” Health Infrastructure said the planning approval process is twostaged and will include a public exhibition period to offer the community an opportunity to provide feedback. “Stage one will include high level concept plans to support the application to commence early works; with stage one setting

out the design of the new stateof-the-art hospital to allow the main construction to commence,” the spokesperson for Health Infrastructure said. Meanwhile, the Relocate Team, who have been actively campaigning against the use of State Significant Farmland for the new hospital, continue to maintain a strong opposition and have launched a new website. T h e w e b s i t e ( w w w. relocatetweedvalleyhospital.org) has been set up by concerned local farmers and community members to provide what they say is the “real story” behind the surprise selection of Cudgen state significant farmland in April 2018 for a previously unplanned new greenfield hospital. “Our new website aims to make public many of the facts that have been withheld from conversations with the local community, so that the community is able to determine the truth for themselves,” Hayley

Paddon, spokesperson for the Relocate Team said. “After site announcements made by Health Minister Brad Hazzard, many locals believe that this development is done and dusted, but we believe that once our community knows the full extent of this development, and all that we stand to lose, they will be doubling their call for a better site to be chosen in the limited time we have left. “The site should be one that does not build on state significant farmland when there are other options. “The Relocate Team is totally committed to having the best facilities in the Tweed to support resident’s health. “However, we are also committed to not destroying rare state significant farmland – the only significant land left in the Tweed Valley as part of it. Why not have both?”

THE LEGAL LIGHT! Helipad decision appealed by Urliup Road applicant

While all the focus in Canberra was on the government turfing out one prime minister for another, new legislation quietly slipped through parliament that will have a massive impact on the way business is conducted in Australia. Business lawyer Tony Mitchell of Stacks Law Firm warns that firms must acquaint themselves with the increased penalties under Australian Consumer Law (ACL) that have been passed by parliament. The legislation increases the maximum penalty under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 for a company that breaches relevant consumer laws from $1.1 million up to whichever is the greater among the following: $10 million; three times the value of the benefit obtained from the offence; or ten per cent of group turnover in the previous 12 months. The penalty that can be imposed on individuals rises from $220,000 to $500,000 per breach. The increased penalties come into effect the day after the Bill receives Royal Assent. “The increased penalties cover a range of offences but mainly false and misleading representations and unconscionable conduct,” Mr Mitchell said. “Every firm should be getting legal advice to ensure their activities don’t leave them open to action to face these tough new penalties.” The Federal Court fined Ford $10 million last April for unconscionable conduct in the way it dealt with customer complaints. In 2016 Nurofen was fined $6 million for its claims on pain relief products. In 2014 the court fined Coles $10 million for its dealing with suppliers. The Japanese company Yazaki was fined $46 million for cartel conduct last May, the biggest fine ever handed down under the ACL. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) chair Rod Sims told journalists large corporations could now face billion dollar fines. He said that so far, the fines had inflicted some damage to reputations, but no real financial damage. Companies had seen the fines as just the cost of doing business. “That changes today,” Mr Sims told Fairfax Media. “If you (companies) breach the law, you will face a penalty that will affect your share price.”

“To my understanding there are none. “The Council has not had an issue with the noise of the trucks. “It is not allowable in the assessment of this development application to refuse on the basis of other impacts arising from another application.” Another reason that councillors gave for refusing the application was concerns with “assumptions” that were made in the acoustic report, “particularly in regard to the single flight path identified whereas this will be dependent on wind direction”. A recent report by Air Services Australia into short round-trip helicopter activity at the Gold Coast Airport was referenced by Mayor Milne and Cr Byrnes in relation to their concerns with the noise assessment. The report arose from complaints made by residents living near the Gold Coast Airport who were concerned with continuous, low altitude helicopter activity from short (five minute) scenic flights where the report stated that helicopter flight paths are dependent on wind direction. “Helicopters must take off and land into the wind in the same way as fixed wing aircraft do,” the report reads. “Therefore, the direction of the circuit flown varies with the wind conditions.” In response Mr Karlos said he could not “see how it is relevant in any way whatsoever” and that Council’s recommended terms of approval included a flight path to the south then west of the helipad (see picture). “With my application the approach and take-off path was mandated by

the application and the Council in its proposed conditions of consent,” he said. “In assessing an application the Council must assume that conditions of approval must be assume to be complied with. “The decision also questioned the wind on the day of the test. The relevant standard requires light wind for the outcome to be valid.” Mr Karlos also questioned the helipad as being inconsistent with the rural zone. “Finally, the development was said to be inconsistent with the rural zone,” he said. “That decision was made against the advice of Council officers which concluded that the helipad was consistent with the relevant zone objectives. “For the matters set out above I would like the application reviewed. “In my view it can be approved, subject to conditions.”

DR TOURISM has announced that Bradley Nardi has been appointed General Manager for the delivery of tourism marketing, industry development and visitor information for the Tweed Shire. Mr Nardi comes to the role after working as the Tourism Director for Fraser Coast Tourism and Events Ltd and also hails from the Northern Rivers where he has family and personal links the Tweed Shire. Director of DR Tourism, Danielle Andreuzzi said she was thrilled to have secured a high-quality candidate and is looking forward to getting Brad started in the role.

“We recognise that having a General Manager that offers the combination of strong tourism experience and local knowledge is critically important,” Mrs Andreuzzi said. Mr Nardi’s parents were born and raised in Murwillumbah and his upbringing included family picnics on the Tweed River at Tumbulgum, hikes up Wollumbin Mount Warning and a swim at Cabarita beach. “It is exciting to see some great work already happening in the Tweed as a tourism destination and focussing on the strategy and development of an area so close to my heart is an absolute privilege,” he said.

“Once we are settled with staffing and operations commenced (in October); our first priority will be to connect with local industry stakeholders so that we are operating proactively and collaboratively on behalf of the region.” Tweed Shire Council General Manager, Troy Green, said DR Tourism was the successful tenderer for promotion of the Tweed’s tourism for at least the next four years and they take over from Destination Tweed on October 1. “Council welcomes the appointment of Bradley Nardi, who brings substantial experience in the tourism sector as well as local knowledge,” Mr Green said.

DR Tourism appoints new general manager

Mr Mitchell said in recent years the courts had been willing to impose stiff fines on corporations that breached consumer law, and with the revelations from the banking Royal Commission that is likely to increase.

“It’s not just the huge corporations that are in the spotlight for bad behaviour. Smaller businesses could also find themselves targeted, so it would be wise to get expert legal advice on your activities as they apply to obligations under consumer law,” Mr Mitchell said.

Companies could face billion dollar fines under tough new consumer law penalties

By Jonathon Howard THE OWNER of an Urliup Road water extraction business is appealing Tweed Shire Councillor’s recent decision to refuse a helipad on his property. The application to operate a helicopter from the 477 Urliup Road site for seven flights a week between the hours of 6.30am and 6.30pm was refused by four out of seven councillors during their August 2 meeting. The Councillors refusal outlined three areas of concern including noise and the noise impact assessment, and the development not being consistent with the objectives of the rural zone. Council officers had recommended the application be approved with conditions that included limiting the hours of operation to no earlier than 7am Monday to Saturday and 8am on Sundays. However, Mayor Katie Milne and Cr Reece Byrnes moved to refuse the application because “the development is considered to be unacceptable due to noise impacts on the neighbours including cumulative impact from bulk water extraction trucks currently accessing the site”. In a letter of appeal to Council’s General Manager, Troy Green, Mr Karlos said the impacts of trucks operating from his water extraction business was not a “valid reason to refuse the helipad”. “Any assessment of cumulative impact requires the assessment of the application in combination with similar types (ie other helipads) already approved or proposed in the locality,” the letter reads.

Tweed residents Kim and Michelle shot to fame in 2018 as the first mother/daughter contestants on Channel 7 reality program House Rules. This Saturday it’s their turn to wear the judges’ hats. The renovating duo are attending the Sustainable Living Home Expo to judge the children’s Sustainable Shoebox House Design Competition. “We’re keen to be involved with anything that encourages kids to play and be creative,” Kim said. Kim and Michelle will be at the expo from 2pm. “During the demolition (on House Rules) there was a lot of waste materials that were thrown into the skip that could have been used again. Lots of neighbours asked if they could reuse materials we were throwing away. It was good to see useful materials going to a new home.” Children across the Tweed are encouraged to make a model house showcasing their vision for sustainable living and to bring their models along to the expo to be judged by Kim and Michelle for the chance to win some great prizes. Materials used in the model should be waste items found around the home. Make your model house at the expo: It’s not too late to enter. Make your sustainable house model at home out of re-usable waste or come along to the Sustainable Living Home Expo early where art teacher Carleen Joy will be on hand from 9am with loads of materials suitable for making model houses – just bring your imagination and innovative ideas for sustainable living along ( and your house plans too if you’ve made them). Don’t be late: All entries with completed entry forms must arrive at the judging table at the expo before 2pm as judging takes place at 2.30pm. Entry forms can be downloaded from Council website or filled in at the expo.

Categories and prizes

• Best team: Five family passes to the Hastings Point Marine Environments Field Study and Resource Centre • Best individual (under 8 yrs): One Family pass to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary • Best individual (8–12 yrs): Half-day double kayak hire from Caldera Kayak and Stand Up Paddle Board Experience, Hastings Point For the entry form, visit www.tweed.nsw.au/homeexpo

Tweed’s first sustainable house to opens its doors Elwood Farm at Limpinwood is the Tweed’s first sustainable house to take part in the national Sustainable Open House Day on Sunday 16 September following the Home Expo.

The sustainable Elwood Farm house at Limpinwood will be open for viewing by the public on Sunday 16 September. For address details, visit sustainablehouseday.com

Owner designer Len Newton will open Elmwood Farm, a stunning three bedroom home built with sufficiency in mind, between 10am–4pm. Sustainable features of the rammed earth construction include an array of recycled building materials, passive solar design utilising louvre windows, strategically placed to capture the prevailing breezes in summer and also prominent windows on the north aspect to capture the winter sun, soundproof walls which also maintain an ideal ambient temperature, bamboo flooring, rainwater storage and extensive edible gardens. “Since retiring three years ago, my wife and I have taken the opportunity to enact a plan we have had for many years which is to build a sustainable home and live (as far as possible) a self-sufficient lifestyle, which I think we have largely accomplished,” he said. “We would be happy to welcome anyone who would like to see what we have done and hopefully they might take away some ideas for themselves to make their own homes more sustainable.” There are four fabulous sustainable homes that will open their doors to Northern Rivers residents on Sunday 16 September – see www.sustainable housedaynr.org for details.

It’s time for another park makeover at Kingscliff Kingscliff’s Lions Park is undergoing a makeover, to improve the functionality of the park while also improving accessibility and recreation facilities for residents and visitors. The park – the foreshore area immediately south of the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club – is a much-loved gathering space for many. The refurbishment is designed to complement its current use around markets, surf events and community get-togethers. The work is the next component of the Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation Project which included the establishment of Rowan Robinson Park, a seawall to protect from erosion and a major upgrade of the Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park. There are no changes of use of the park proposed or any major structural changes. The old shelters and barbecues are being replaced, accessibility improved through better connecting pathways, and the park will generally be dressed up. The shelters will be replaced in a central location allowing for a larger, clear open space to accommodate these activities, with additional facilities installed at the southern end of the park. The design will complement the Rowan Robinson Park upgrade, with the same paving materials and park furniture carried through into the new design. The plan was completed in consultation with the main park

stakeholders and users – the surf club, the market operators and the Kingscliff Lions Club and also Council’s Community Development Officer – Ageing and Disability. Unfortunately, two of the old Norfolk Pines in the park were in a state of serious decline from previous root and trunk damage and had to be to be removed. Two new plants of the same species will be planted elsewhere in the park. The whole of the park will be fenced to allow the demolition of the existing facilities and pathways and trenching throughout the park for electrical conduits etc. The park will be progressively opened as works are completed from north to south, hopefully with the northern section opened by mid-October and the project completed in 12 weeks. While the fence is in place, pedestrians at the southern end of the works will be directed to use the shop side of the street, and the car spaces between the fig tree crossing and the surf club driveway will be used to allow use of this crossing and direct pedestrians safely onto the footpath out the front of the surf club at the northern end of the works. The contractors – Desire Contractors – have been requested to maintain a beach access through the middle of the park. For more information, call Council on (02) 6670 2530 or visit www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/LionsPark for an artist’s impression.

In brief ... New toilet block for Knox Park

A start to construction of the new toilet block in Murwillumbah’s Knox Park is not far away. The first stages of the Knox Park stage 2 works have moved to the next phase with the erection of construction fencing and commencement of preparation works for the public toilets, to be built in a new central location in the park. Over the past couple of months the old toilet block on Nullum Street was demolished and a new park entry and pathway constructed and pathway lighting installed. It is anticipated that the toilet block will be completed late November, in time for Christmas. The rest of the works, including demolition of the old toilet block and rotunda on Brisbane Street, the construction of an entry plaza to the park at the Brisbane Street/Wollumbin Street corner of the park and a widened central path through the park, will commence in 2019. The project is funded through NSW Infrastructure Restart Program and the Commonwealth Government Building Better regions Fund.

Funding assists with salty water problem at weir Council has welcomed $100,000 in funding from the NSW Government’s $1 billion Safe and Secure Water Program to investigate options to prevent salt water contamination of the Tweed’s water supply. There is a continuing risk that Bray Park Weir, which supplies raw water for the Tweed Shire, may be overtopped by salt water during high tide and sea level anomaly events. The risk is forecast to increase with climate change. A combination of high tides plus an unforeseen sea level anomaly caused Bray Park Weir to be overtopped in August last year. The salt water ingress caused the raw water provided to the Bray Park Water Treatment Plant to be contaminated and as a result, the contaminated salt water went into the Tweed drinking water supply. Research undertaken by Water Research Laboratory, a unit of the University of NSW, forecasts such overtopping events will be more common in the future. To mitigate the risk of salt water contamination of the Tweed water supply, Council has established the Bray Park Weir Tidal Protection Project Reference Group – a group of 10 community members and two Councillors– to investigate the best possible solutions to address this problem while avoiding or minimising impacts on the Tweed River and surrounding landholders. The grant will be used to engage an independent consultant to

assess proposed solutions to the problem as identified by the PRG. The PRG is currently working to establish proposed solutions and the assessment criteria to be used by the independent consultant. The independent consultant will report back to the PRG, which will then recommend a preferred solution or suite of solutions on behalf of the community for determination by Council. The Safe and Secure Water Program is a $1 billion regional infrastructure co-funding program established in 2017 under the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Fund.

There’s life in this old amenities block yet, with a restoration of its heritage features ahead and hopefully a new future as a community space.

Restoring Tweed’s heritage

Mt Warning Road closures

Mt Warning Road will be closed for nine days midweek at the end of September and beginning of October to allow contractors to repair an upside rockface slip above the road. The planned closures will be on the following dates from: • 10pm Tuesday 25 September until 4pm Thursday 27 September • 10pm Monday 1 October until 4pm Thursday 4 October, and • 10pm Sunday 7 October until 4pm Thursday 11 October inclusive. The road will be fully closed during this time and allowances to turn vehicles around will be made. The contractor will keep the road open Fridays, weekends and public holidays as these are the most popular days for visitors to Wollumbin/Mt Warning. Signs will be placed at the entry to the road advising of the closures. The closure schedule may change due to wet weather and contractor availability. Updated road closure information can be found at www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/RoadWorks or www.myroadinfo.com.au

Living and Loving the Tweed

Council has welcomed a $30,000 grant from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage which will begin the transformation of a disused amenities block in Murwillumbah into a usable and attractive community space. A heritage assessment in 2011 found the Queen Street amenities block to be a good example of post-war architectural styles applied to public infrastructure and identified it as the only known example in the region. The building is within the Murwillumbah Heritage Conservation Area identified by the Murwillumbah Community Heritage Study, and is located within close proximity to a number of other significant heritage items, including the Salvation Army Citadel, the Broadway building, Tweed Arcade, Main Street clock and BGF House. Its heritage features include its zigzag metal balustrade, ‘crazy paving’ on the stone wall, blue painted render, curved façade, protruding flat roofline and glass bricks, while its front lawn has a commanding view over the street. Council General Manager Troy Green said Council would now be able to restore the redundant building to promote appreciation of its heritage value. “The building is presently in a derelict condition and considered by the local community as an eyesore, so apart from currently having no use, its heritage value is under appreciated,” he said. “Subject to sourcing further funds, the building’s interior could then be fitted out, to become a useful community space which could be used by event organisers for an office for a short period or by other community groups.” The funding is a Heritage Near Me Activation Grant which targets heritage items which can be accessed by the public. Council will use the funding to: • make structural improvements to the building • restore the external façade to reflect and respect its local and regional heritage significance • increase access to and awareness of the building by including it as a feature item on the soon-to-be-developed Murwillumbah Arts and Heritage Precinct App. The amenities block was decommissioned a number of years ago due to the high cost of maintenance and repairs and as it was not able to be brought up to modern standards of accessibility. A new toilet block was constructed in Tumbulgum Road in its place.

In the Tweed, water restrictions are triggered when the dam falls to 75 per cent capacity. These Level 1 restrictions aim to reduce consumption by 15 per cent. If the dam falls to 40 per cent capacity, the highest level of restrictions is triggered aimed at reducing consumption by 30 per cent. “Our water consumption figure in the Tweed is going in the wrong direction and we all need to reset the goal to Target 160 litres per person per day to conserve this precious resource. “In June 2013, the average Tweed resident was using 179 litres of water a day. Now, they are using almost 200 litres of water a day. “We ask all residents to reset their commitment to Target 160L to avoid the possibility of water restrictions if this drought continues.” For water saving tips: www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/WaterSavingTips

Despite the recent rain in the Tweed, the prolonged dry spell is forecast to continue across the country. It’s as a timely reminder to Tweed residents to conserve water. Already, some communities in NSW are running low on water, with dam levels down to as little as 10 per cent capacity. Recently Council released water from Clarrie Hall Dam to maintain sufficient environment flows at Bray Park Weir while still providing for the Tweed District Water Supply. “These releases are likely to continue so we can fully expect the level of Clarrie Hall Dam to fall,” Acting Manager Water and Wastewater Rob Siebert said. “In the Tweed we are fortunate as Clarrie Hall Dam is still 99 per cent full. But given the latest climate outlook and forecast for a dry spring from the Bureau of Meteorology, we all need to conserve water now to avoid water restrictions in the future if rain doesn’t come.”

Local News 11

Slow going for voluntary house purchasing Tweed Valley Hospital “There is no quantified commitment to State funding in future years.” Mr Rose said in response to concerns the scheme could take up to 25 years to roll out, a report is being prepared for a forthcoming Council meeting to detail the VHP scheme in South Murwillumbah, including priority areas. “The previous Floodplain Risk Management Plan for the Tweed Valley did not recommend all of Railway Street for purchase, however we are revisiting this through our observations from the 2017 flood and the demonstrated hardship of residents,” Mr Rose said. “The scheme contains large numbers of at-risk properties that will realistically take many years to be affordable, unless additional State or Federal funding is made available.” Mr Rose pointed out a recent letter sent to Railway Street property owners inviting them to take part in free valuations of their properties in order to progress to the next stage of VHP. “To progress any submission for funding, Council has to prepare work programs for approval by OEH based on valuations of the individual properties participating,” the letter reads. “With this information, OEH will then be able to confirm what funding is available in the 2019-2020 allocation onwards. “Regrettably, the funding available under the 2018-2019 allocation is fully committed to the purchase of four houses, including one in South Murwillumbah. “We appreciate that this is not the news you wanted but the reality is that funding is the main constraint on rolling out the program through areas such as Railway Street in a timely manner.”

How Much Can a Koala Bear?

In My Humble Opinion Vincent Selleck

Choosing solar power is not just about saving money.

Every time someone puts solar panels on their roof, less coal is burnt. Less carbon is released into our atmosphere and less habitat is destroyed. Yes, it will also save you money on your power bill, but don't think that is the only reason for doing something. When money becomes the only reason for doing things, Prime Ministers are knifed in the back for trying to link emission targets to power reliability and prices. More koala food trees are bulldozed and burnt and these iconic Australian animals will be extinct by 2050. Is that a world you want to live in? September is Save the Koala Month and at 888 Solar Tek we are planting more koala food trees. We live on 20 acres of forest at Federal and just planted another 100 tallowwood and swamp mahogany trees to enlarge a koala corridor from Stoney Creek to the ridge. We are also donating $100 from every solar sale this month to Bangalow Koalas to help coordinate and plant more koala food corridors in the hinterland from Federal to Bangalow. Find out how you can help at www.bangalowkoalas.com.au or call Linda Sparrow on 0411 491 991. You do not have to throw away your old solar system to buy a new one. This just creates more waste and burns more coal somewhere. New solar technology allows old solar panels to work with new solar panel regardless of size or voltage. We recommend paying a little bit more to get a SolarEdge system with panel optimisation that allows old and new panels to be mixed for more energy production and less waste. SolarEdge optimisers have a 25 year warranty and this month we are also providing a free warranty upgrade to 20 years for SolarEdge inverters as well.

When governments are puppets to fossil fuel corporations and neo-liberalism has diseased all their heads, we have to take power into our own hands. Let's save our koalas and put more solar on our roofs.

The letter said any Railway Street residents who would like to receive a valuation of their property, can email tsc@tweed.nsw.gov.au, to the attention of Danny Rose, Manager Roads and Stormwater, by close of business on Friday, September 21, this year. “A valuation report will then be available in approximately 4-6 weeks,” the letter reads. “The valuer will contact you as part of the valuation process, so please include your daytime contact details.” Until VHP/VHR schemes and funding are in place, Mr Rose said residents need to make their own arrangements to properly prepare their properties in response to flood warnings, listen to evacuation advice, and consider their options around flood insurance and the flood compatibility of their dwellings. “Council will arrange for valuation advice for interested residents in Railway Street, so at least the residents can be properly informed when making decisions about whether or not to stay or leave Railway Street, and whether the VHP scheme will work for them,” he said.

panel applications open

MEMBER FOR Tweed Geoff Provest has welcomed the appointment of a community panel to help shape the vision for the new $534 million Tweed Valley Hospital. Rebecca Wark, Executive Director, Rural & Regional for Health Infrastructure, said the Consumer and Community Reference Panel consists of about 50 community members and will play an important role in the planning and design of the regional referral hospital. “Establishing the Panel is a significant milestone, and we are excited to see the energy and passion of the members during recent orientation sessions and a master planning workshop,” Ms Wark said. “Panel members will provide valuable input throughout the planning and design stages by representing the views of patients, carers and the local community, and we look forward to their contribution.” The Tweed Shire Council Reference Group and the Project User Groups (clinicians and staff) are also central to the ongoing consultation program involving key stakeholders. Panel member Lyn McInerney said she enjoyed participating in the master planning workshop for the new hospital, to be located on Cudgen Road, opposite Kingscliff TAFE. “I enjoyed having the opportunity to learn about and contribute to the development of the hospital. I’m looking forward to sharing this information with other people,” Ms McInerney said. Fellow Panel member Dot Holdom said consideration of community is the most important part of building a hospital. “I can now see the vision for the hospital and I’m excited,” Mrs Holdom said. Acting Chief Executive, Northern NSW Local Health District, Lynne Weir said panel members would be invited to participate in a range of ongoing workshops, focus groups and meetings and contributing to both the clinical and physical design of the new hospital. “The real-life and local experience that Panel members bring to the planning and design of the new hospital will be invaluable in delivering a hospital that best meets the needs of the Tweed-Byron region,” Ms Weir said. Applications for membership on the panel will remain open throughout the project, visit the project website for application forms, www.tweedvalleyhospital.health.nsw.gov.au

SolarEdge optimizers ensure every panel operates separately to prevent energy loss to whole strings of panels when one is shaded or soiled.

Traditional String Inverter

SolarEdge is the best inverter technology available. It can produce up to 25% more power than normal string inverters. With 25 year warranties Solar Edge is competively priced but offers significant life time savings. Here are the advantages available with SolarEdge: > Buy once to last a lifetime. 25 year inverter warranties available.

Solar Edge Inverter with Panel level optimisation

> More power for longer. Every solar panel losses power as it ages at different rates. SolarEdge allows each panel to give its best all the time and not be dragged down by weaker panels in a string. > Superior safety with SafeDC. If the inverter is shut down or there is a short circuit on the roof, the Solar Edge optimizers shut down the power immediately. No fire or electrocution risk. > Install more panels anytime on any roof angle. SolarEdge optimizers allow different types of panels to go anywhere and face any direction on the same inverter. Traditional string inverters do not allow new panels to go with old or face different directions.

By Jonathon Howard RESIDENTS BOWLED over by the 2017 flood on Railway Street are losing hope that their properties will be purchased under the voluntary house purchasing or voluntary house raising schemes, as additional funding for purchasing of the homes is reliant on State Government funding. The Weekly put several questions in relation to the concerns of Railway Street residents including, as one resident suggested, whether it could take 10 to 25 years before the voluntary purchasing progresses. In response Tweed Shire Council manager of road and stormwater Danny Rose said Council has formally committed to pursuing both voluntary house purchase (VHP) and voluntary house raising (VHR) schemes in South Murwillumbah, Bray Park, Burringbar and Mooball, with VHP being the priority at this time. When asked whether Council’s funding for the purchasing of the flood impacted homes, Mr Rose pointed out that the VHP is funded under two parts by the State Government and one part by Council. “Council has set aside significant funding in the long-term financial plan to fund its contribution,” he said. “Council resolved in June to pursue VHP on four high priority properties in South Murwillumbah, Burringbar and Mooball. “However, the State Government (Office of Environment and Heritage) has only recently confirmed their share of funding. “It is unlikely that further funding will be provided by the State this financial year.

MURWILLUMBAH RURAL Fire Brigade will host a special open day for the community on Saturday, September 22, as local firefighters gear up for a dry and potentially dangerous spring and summer fire season. The open day will take place from 10am to 2pm at the Murwillumbah Rural Fire Brigade shed at Kyogle Road near the Murwillumbah High School. The message this year for all residents is to “Get Ready” for the fire season by preparing properties and ensuring you have an evacuation plan in place should a fire take hold. The Weekly spoke with Murwillumbah Rural Fire Brigade president Don Bentley who said firefighters were keen to educate and inform residents of the potential fire dangers in and around homes and properties. “The open day is a perfect time to come together as a community for a barbecue and catch up, but also to talk about the fire risks and to organise a free home assessment for fire dangers,” he said. The open day will include a range of demonstrations, tours and information sharing to ensure the community is mindful of seasonal fire dangers. Mr Bentley said the “Get Ready for Summer” campaign is a state wide initiative to educate and alert residents of the potential fire danger. It has already been a busy start to the fire season with more than 2,000 bush and grass fires across NSW during August. With all of NSW in drought and a forecast of ongoing warm and dry conditions, there is the potential for and long and protracted bush fire season. “The dry conditions have heightened concerns for the fire outbreaks this year,” he said. NSW RFS members have been busy preparing by undertaking hazard reduction burns, maintaining firefighting equipment and undergoing training.

“We want to ensure residents are aware of the dangers and are taking steps to address any potential fuel loads or other fire hazards around their properties,” Mr Bentley said. The Get Ready for Summer fire season initiative includes four easy steps for each home to follow including discussing what to do if a bush fire threatens your home, preparing your home and getting ready for bush fire season, knowing the bush fire alert levels and keeping all the bush fire information numbers and phone app. Visitors will be treated to free sausage sizzle and free fairy floss, as well as using extinguishers and fire hoses. To find out more about the open day, or to get involved with the Murwillumbah Rural Fire Brigade, phone: 0408 535 385. The Cudgen, Tweed Coast and Tyalgum Fire Brigades will hold their open days from 10am to 12pm on Saturday, September 22 and the Burringbar Fire Brigade will open their doors from 11.30am to 3pm.

A MAN has been charged with multiple offences following a police pursuit in Tweed Heads. Police attempted to stop a Toyota Camry which was missing the front registration plate on Minjungbal Drive, Tweed Heads South, around 3.30pm on Monday September 10. The driver failed to stop and a pursuit followed with the vehicle turning on to the Pacific Highway and continuing south. Police lost sight of the vehicle as it approached the Tweed Coast Road exit and the pursuit was terminated. Queensland Polair assisted NSW Police and tracked the vehicle heading east on Urliup Road, towards Bilambil. The vehicle was driven directly towards a NSW Police vehicle on Urliup Road and the

officers had to take evasive action to avoid a collision. Queensland Polair maintained sight of the vehicle that eventually stopped on private property on Mayes Hill Road, North Tumbulgum, where the 21-year-old driver and his passenger were arrested. The vehicle was searched and police found a small amount of cannabis, a pocket knife and a stolen registration plate. The driver was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with police pursuit, dangerous driving, possessing a prohibited drug, possession of stolen goods, driving while disqualified and carrying a weapon. He was refused bail and appeared in Tweed Heads Local Court on Tuesday, September 11. The passenger was released pending further inquiries.

Best Places to Visit in the USA

Local News 13

Yosemite

FROM COASTLINES to big cities, the United States is made up of so many diverse destinations that it’s hard to decide which places deserve the distinction of the best in America. It is a country that literally has something for everyone. If you were needing a little inspiration on where to go, here are some top picks to help you decide.

A visit to Yosemite National Park is all about reconnecting with nature. Spend your visit checking out famous landmarks like Half Dome and Glacier Point or hiking Cathedral Lakes, Mist Trail and other popular paths. If you’re not one for camping, opt for a daytrip from San Francisco, Sacramento or Lake Tahoe.

Yellowstone

New York City

This national park provides plenty of attractions to excite nature lovers, from steaming geysers to bubbling hot springs to hiking trails that stretch for miles. Plus, animal fans will appreciate a visit to the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center to learn about local wildlife.

Known for its museums, theatres and restaurant scene, the sheer number of things to do in the Big Apple puts most of its U.S. peers to shame. When you need a respite from the city’s busy street life and soaring skyscrapers, retreat to scenic Central Park or the artsy High Line.

Maui

San Francisco

With idyllic beaches and verdant parks, Maui is escapism at its finest. Here, you can spend your days admiring the scenery as you cruise along the Road to Hana or lounge across the sands of Waianapanapa State Park. Sampling the island’s seafood is also a must.

Grand Canyon

San Francisco’s culture has been affected by diverse ethnic groups and many social movements. The best way to perceive the City by the Bay’s character is to explore each neighbourhood. From the Mission to the Castro, visitors appreciate each enclave’s offerings.

To experience some of the most inspiring views America has to offer, plan a trip to Grand Canyon National Park. Whether you choose to hike the Bright Angel Trail or raft the Colorado River, you’re sure to feel small against the towering rock formations and picturesque vistas

The nation’s capital has a lot going for it. Iconic landmarks, such as the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, allow you to sightsee for days. Just make sure to save some energy for an evening out – D.C. boasts a lively restaurant and bar scene.

Washington, D.C.

Honolulu - Oahu Oahu features a nice balance of urban and beach environments. And with pleasant weather year-round, there really is no bad time to visit. Waikiki Beach promises to please but be warned: There’s a good chance you will be greeted by a barrage of tourists. For more elbow room, head to Kailua’s Lanikai Beach.

Boston Plan a trip to Boston for a glimpse at U.S. history, baseball and wicked smart universities. On warmer days, pack a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds of Boston Common or the Boston Public Garden after wandering the more than 2-mile-long Freedom Trail.

Lake Tahoe North America’s largest mountain lake beckons to active travellers year-round. Winter draws skiers and snowboarders in droves to the slopes at Lake Tahoe’s six resorts, while the warmer months are ideal for hiking, scenic drives and lake activities like kayaking and

boating. For an active vacation with a twist, trek one of the region’s two beer trails.

New Orleans Few American cities are home to cultures as unique as the Big Easy’s. Offering a blend of influences from the Caribbean, Europe and other locales, New Orleans has a distinct personality. This vibrant city welcomes visitors with all of the gumbo, live jazz and partying they can handle.

Glacier National Park Glaciers are the main draw of this national park, but its more than 700 lakes, two mountain ranges and multiple waterfalls are equally impressive. Hiking is the park’s most popular pastime, though the area is also a prime spot for canoeing and fishing. Plus, wild animals like moose, bears and elk are frequently spotted here.

POLICE IN the Tweed/Byron Police District Command are calling for an urgent increase in the number of police officers to deal with the region’s ice epidemic. The Police Association of NSW has just released a list of crystal-meth (ice) regional hotspots which include the Tweed Byron Police District in the top 10 in the state. Tweed Byron Police District branch official Darren McCaughey said in a media statement that the Police Association in the Tweed/ Byron District was calling for an additional 31 police. “Every police officer knows how all-pervasive ice has become,” Mr McCaughey said. “It dominates our work, it has links to domestic violence, mental health incidents, road fatalities, youth crime, house and business break-ins, organised crime and it is destroying lives. “These are the symptoms of the prevalence of ice in our communities.” Mr McCaughey said the problem was almost overwhelming. “Local police are so stretched that they’re drowning, just dealing with the symptoms of ice and users rather than focusing their efforts on the supply chain,” he said. “All we can do at the moment is mop up the problems, rather than getting to the root of the issue and stopping the drugs before they hit our streets. “That’s why we need additional police on our front line in Tweed/Byron – to deal with the hold ice has taken in our community.” Mr McCaughey said a doubling of police numbers in the Regional Enforcement Squads was needed to disrupt manufacturers and suppliers. “In our area, we’re calling for an additional 12 police in our Regional Enforcement Squad,” he said. “The NSW Government has a choice – it can either sit back and watch while this drug continues to take hold of our communities, or it can listen to the police on the ground and deliver the additional resources we need to keep our streets safe. “Ice is a problem everywhere in the state, but our regional areas are shouldering the brunt of the scourge. “If we’re serious about tackling our ice problem, we need the resources to be able

to focus on the drug dealers – the people pedalling this poison in our communities.” Mr McCaughey said regional areas like the Tweed Shire needed specialised, targeted plans and resources to deal with ice. “Our communities are crying out for action, and all we as police are asking for are the resources we need to keep our communities safe,” he said. The call for dedicated ice officers is part of the ‘Back the Blue’ campaign for 2500 extra police across NSW. Mr McCaughey is calling on the local community to support the call for more police by signing a petition at www.pansw.org.au. “This really is about our local community here in Tweed/Byron. We need the whole community to back our campaign for more police,” he said. The call came as Shadow Minister for Police Guy Zangari slammed the Berejiklian Government “for creating a safe haven for bikie gangs south of the Queensland border because of weak laws and an understaffed police force”. The Berejiklian Government has just announced new laws to search outlaw bikie clubhouses two years after the recommendation from the NSW Ombudsman. “Queensland have some of the toughest bikie laws in Australia and the inexcusable delay by the Berejiklian-Barilaro Government has allowed bikies to set up shop south of the Queensland Border,” a media statement from Mr Zangari’s office read. “The situation is critical in Tweed-Byron where police numbers have dropped below 2012 levels. “In 2012 the actual strength for Tweed Byron was 198 officers but the latest figures reveal a drop of 33 officers to 165 – a decline of more than 16 per cent. “In a further insult to North Coast residents there were no new probationary constables for the Tweed-Byron Local Area Command out of the 246 graduates in August 2018.” Former police officer and Labor candidate for Tweed Craig Elliot has been campaigning for increased police numbers in the Tweed and says more needs to be done. “Consistent and comprehensive laws are needed to stamp out bikie gangs no matter which side of the border they are on.”

Councillors move to rezone Seabreeze school site

TWEED SHIRE Councillors have carried a unanimous motion to rezone the earmarked school site at the Seabreeze Estate, Pottsville, to prevent it from being subdivided for residential development and therefore retain it for a future school. The rezoning of the site could end a longfought battle for the site to become a future school, with children currently travelling to Kingscliff, Murwillumbah or even the Gold Coast to attend high school. It is unlikely that a public high school will be built within the estate because the dept of education has said there is no demand. The Dunloe Park Master Plan, which Council is still completing, is likely to include a school site but Councillor Chris Cherry, who is the former head of the Pottsville Community Association and has long fought for a school within Seabreeze, told The Weekly the Dunloe Park school site is not currently designated as either a high school or primary school. A private operator, Pacific Hills Christian School, had shown an interest in purchasing the site to develop a kindergarten to year 12 school, but has been unable to secure it because of a disagreement on price. According to a Council report an offer was made by Pacific Hills based on an independent land valuer’s report but “the landowners did

not accept the offer as they are seeking a value based on residential development potential”. The developer had applied to subdivide the six-hectare lot into a 72-lot residential s u b d iv i s i o n , bu t c o u n c i l l o r s vo t e d unanimously to refuse the application at their August 16 meeting. A subsequent application to remove the designation of a potential school site from Council’s Development Control Plan, in a move that would allow for the site to be subdivided, was unanimously knocked back by councillors at last Thursday’s Planning Committee (September 6). Councillors also voted to look into options for rezoning the land from residential “to a zone which more closely aligns with the Developer’s original commitment, which was to provide a public net benefit by way of allocation of land for educational purpose”. Councillors also voted for an independent valuation of the site be undertaken to determine the price difference between the land being residential zoned and education zoned, as they believed the residential zoning of the land could be preventing a private school from establishing at the site. Council’s report noted that the valuation will only occur if the developer agrees to pay the cost.

Sexual assaults and car crime up vehicles and vehicle contents continued along the Tweed Coast. On Wednesday, August 15, Tweed Byron District Police Command released a statement saying that there were a number of reports received regarding unlocked vehicles being entered around the Kingscliff Hill area. “Police would like to remind the public to make sure they secure their vehicle even when parked in the driveway or garages of their premises,” police said. Labor candidate for Tweed Craig Elliot said chronic understaffing was also a serious issue in the area. “Our local police are doing great work but we have fewer police here in the Tweed today than we did in February 2012, with 33 officers being cut from local ranks under Nationals MP Geoff Provest and his government,” Mr Elliot told The Weekly. “We have an increase in drug crimes and add to this a surge in local cars being stolen and thefts from motor vehicles also going through the roof and it’s clear Geoff Provest’s wrong priorities are hurting locals. “I know firsthand that extra officers make for a safer community and more police proactively patrolling our suburbs means residents will be safer in their homes and that’s why I’m backing the blue.” NSW Police encourage victims of sexual assault to contact police or use the sexual assault reporting option (SARO) questionnaire and to contact support services including the NSW Rape Crisis Centre on 1800 424 017.

By Jo Kennett SEXUAL ASSAULTS in the Tweed Shire are up 20 per cent this year, according to the latest figures from the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research. There were 64 sexual assaults to June 2018 compared to 51 for the same time last year. Thefts of motor vehicles increased by 16 per cent in Tweed Shire in 12 months with 147 incidents to June 2018 compared to 176 for the same time last year. Thefts from motor vehicle are also on the rise, with more than one every day in the shire, up 14 per cent from 374 incidents last year to 437 this year. Stealing from retail stores, dwellings and break and enters were all up as were malicious damage to property cases while robberies were down significantly. Possession and use of amphetamines were up 10 per cent from 239 incidents to 267 while dealing and trafficking in ecstasy was up 31 per cent with 29 convictions in the year to June 2017 and 42 convictions to June 2018. Commander of the Tweed Byron Police District, Superintendent Wayne Starling, recently issued a warnings to Tweed residents to secure properties at all times and report any suspicious behaviour, after gangs of thieves targeted the Casuarina/Salt area, stealing tools and cars. It was one of several such warnings issued over the year as the crime spree targeting

North Star Holiday Resorts new water slides are almost ready for guests

Mark Berg and Rodney Kahil are keen to launch their new and exciting Tweed Heads venture

Water slides nearing completion at North Star New tackle shop venture By Jo Kennett NORTH STAR Holiday Resort’s new water slides in Hastings Point are almost completed and will be officially opened by Theo Whitmont, President of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW, at 11am on Thursday, September 20. The water slides created some controversy amongst some Hastings Point locals concerned about noise, traffic and amenity issues, but the NSW Land and Environment Court granted approval of the upgrade in January this year. The upgrade includes two new 8.2 metre high tubular water slides which spiral more than 60 metres down to poolside landing platforms. The existing lagoon pool has also been remodelled and according to Marketing Manager, Lisa Collier, leading water slide experts, Swimplex Aquatics have added new technology features to the design of the slides, including built-in clear screens

which allow natural light and sunshine inside the tubes. North Star owner Ian Beadel said the new waterslides were constructed in response to comments from guests. “We had quite a few comments over the years about how teenagers are bored, so we wanted to introduce something for them,” Mr Beadle told the Weekly. “It will be opened 1,325 days from when we first went to Council, who were very supportive, but it’s dragged on since then. “My mother used to say if you want to be an achiever you have to be a believer and it’s certainly proved true with this.” Mr Beadle said that the upgrade would provide more employment for locals. “We are delighted that most people were very supportive because they realise that we need the employment,” he said. “When it’s open we will need three people in the pool area for safety reasons. “With the long hours it will be open that will be quite a few extra people we are employing, not just three.”

Mr Beadle said that running a caravan park was a work in progress. “Technically caravan parks have a 20-year life and then they need to be upgraded and we are constantly upgrading so we don’t get left behind,” he said. “We need to give the customers what they are looking for.” The pool would be opened from 8am 6pm during the warmer months. “From Easter to September holidays we will probably only run from 9am – 4pm,” Mr Beadle said. “The swimming pools are heated in winter so it’s warmer in there and people are not as interested in water slides in winter. “The slides are for registered guests only and are free as part of their holiday package.” To find out more you can contact North Star Holiday Resort on (02) 6676 1234.

AN EXCITING new fishing and tackle store is set to open at Greenway Drive, Tweed Heads, with celebrity fishing identity Mark Berg teaming up with local businessman Rodney Kahil to create Mark Berg’s Addict Tackle Tweed Heads. After years of running a successful television series known as Mark Berg’s Fishing Addiction, which is set for another season in the making on Mate (Channel 7), Mr Berg and Mr Kahil have announced the exciting new venture will officially open this Sunday, September 16, from 10am to 2pm. Mr Berg said he has invested in Tweed Heads to bring an iconic local tackle store into a new era for fishing fans. Mr Berg’s joined by his business partner Rodney Kahil, who is the previous Tweed Tackle & Marine Owner and current Addict Tackle Co-owner, to create a space for fishing fans to call home. “We’re designing the space for the fishing community and creating a local hangout and mecca for mad fishos from all over Australia,” Mr Berg said. The opening is expected to attract a large crowd from the Tweed Shire and beyond. There will be plenty of giveaways, a barbecue, competitions, in-store demonstrations and a jumping castle for the kids. “It will be a launch for the Tweed Heads community not to be missed,” Mr Berg said. The biggest prize of the day will be a $10,000 fishing trip for two to Papua New Guinea with Baia Sportfishing.

Nullum House helping dozens of homeless Horrific collision injures By Jonathon Howard THE NEW and improved Nullum House is already serving up meals for the homeless as well as helping residents connect with the community as the official opening of Knox Park facility is set for October 10. The Weekly spoke with Community Services Coordinator Amanda Lindh this week to find out about the increasing number of those sleeping rough as well as the relief in Nullum House emerging from the 2017 flood. The facility is currently feeding 60 people per day across three days per week, with additional food hampers also being prepared. “It is such a relief to have the space operational again, it’s been a hard road for the whole community since the flood,” Mrs Lindh said. “While we have tried our best to provide assistance to the homeless community during this time it has proven difficult in many ways.” Mrs Lindh said Nullum House is a purpose-built space for anyone who is homeless, at risk of homelessness or socially isolated/disadvantaged. “While the flood displaced many people from their homes, those who are homeless, and disadvantaged were also displaced from their place of safety and security and from their support networks. “It has been quite a mission getting the place back up and running again.” Mrs Lindh said Tweed Shire Council, who own the building, agreed to let us continue using the building. “After we presented Council with information on why it’s such a necessary service and agreed to assist us with some of the renovation costs which has been great,” she said.

“Having the facility back has been amazing. “It has meant that we can provide targeted support to those in need in a safe environment and engage the community in programs and services.” The new building layout has created many opportunities for using the space and Mrs Lindh said she was now planning to run many community programs in the future such as art therapy, music therapy, living skills classes and support groups as well as expanding our usual free meal programs and activities. Mrs Lindh said the food is largely donated from local butchers, IGA and Coles, with additional donations of

funds and non-perishable food always welcomed. “Nullum House is completely charity operated and unfunded,” she said. “We get a lot of support from the business community so we can operate three days per week Monday, Tuesday and Thursday which includes breakfast and lunch, plus takeaways. “Every butcher in town and IGA provide food as well as Coles, which is such a huge help. “We would always welcome more donations from the public and local businesses, including breakfast cereals and non-perishable food and of course funds to help those in need.” For more information phone (02) 6672 3003.

TWEED POLICE are investigating a horrific crash that occurred on the Pacific Highway at Cudgera Creek just after 2.30pm on Sunday, September 9. Police said a VW Tiguan and a Kia Sorento collided causing the VW to roll multiple times, injuring the male driver and a four-year old and six-month old. “The driver, a man aged in his 40s, has been airlifted to Gold Coast Hospital with head injuries,” police said. “Two children, also travelling in the VW, have been taken to Tweed Heads Hospital.” Police said the female driver of the Kia wasn’t injured and was taken to hospital for mandatory testing. A witness told The Weekly she had spotted one of the vehicles travelling at speed prior to the crash. “He came past me just before it happened,” the witness said. “Guy was doing at least 170 and lost control with his two babies in the car. Horrendous.” The Tweed District Rescue Squad attended the crash and used hydraulic spreaders and cutters to free the man from his vehicle. “A big thanks to the people who stopped to render assistance including medical professionals,” a spokesperson for the rescue squad said. “We must commend the vehicle which after suffering huge impacts kept the occupants as safe as they could be in the cell of the vehicle.” Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District and the Crash Investigation Unit are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit https:// nsw.crimestoppers.com.au

The Tweed District Rescue Squad work to free the man.

Spring Brides WEDDING BELLS are about the start ringing across the Tweed Shire this Spring with a range of amazing service providers, venues, photographers and much more to help make your dream day come true. To find out more about some of local business operators’ wedding preferences, The Weekly asked the question what’s your favourite wedding style and why?

Murwillumbah Services Club

It’s always so lovely to see a Romantic style wedding. Romance can be simple and elegant, using many little touches such as flowers or love hearts and table decorations to create colour and happiness, and that feel-good atmosphere of sweet love in the air.

Katrina Cram Photography

The playful, relaxed vibe of bohemian weddings draws me in, with its mixed natural textiles, wild florals tied with twine, it encompasses the free spirit and wild-hearted nature of today’s young couples. I really enjoy photographing Boho weddings, they are casual affairs centred around festivity and fun. What better way to celebrate a union than under festoon lights in an incredible tepee with cold beverages on ice and a vast grazing table of wedding day nibbles.

Mt Warning Tours

The perfect wedding day would be on the water with views of the river and our beautiful mount Warning.

Mavis’s Kitchen

Garden Party/casual - Weddings are all about those around us, our dearest loved ones coming together to celebrate love and life, I like a casual gathering where the couple, family & guests can all celebrate together with as few formalities as possible.

Nestled at the base of the majestic Wollumbin-Mt Warning, this 25-acre former dairy farm is surrounded by World Heritage rainforest and the fertile farmland of the lush Tweed Valley. Stay, Love, Eat & Celebrate! A Wedding at Mavis’s Kitchen offers picturesque ceremony locations & a variety of reception dining styles. Settle into our boutique cabins, enjoy Farm-Fresh cuisine & dance the night away.

Having spent time on my auntie’s farm in Laidley and now working in the beautiful Tweed Valley, country and rustic weddings are by far my favourite style. I got married in February this year at the Tweed River Jockey Club in a casual country-themed wedding and look forward to being able to showcase our facility to other couples.

What to do if you find a stranded dolphin By Jo Kennett A LEADING dolphin researcher has said that beachgoers need to be aware of the correct procedure if they find a dolphin or whale washed up on the beach. Executive Director of Dolphin Research Australia Dr Elizabeth Hawkins issued the advice in the wake of the recent dolphin stranding and removal from the beach at Cabarita that made headlines around the country. Dr Hawkins said that if a stranded dolphin or whale is found it is important to not drag it back into the water. “Usually if they wash up on the beach they are sick or injured and in need of help,” Dr Hawkins told The Weekly. “The essential thing is not to drag it back out. “It is best to call National Parks or (ORRCA) straight away for assistance, whether the animal is dead or alive, and wait for professionals to arrive.” A spokesperson from NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service said that people should not interact with stranded animals. “For the safety of both people and animals, people must avoid interacting with stranded animals unless under the guidance and approval of the relevant Commonwealth, state or territory management authority,” the spokesperson said. “All jurisdictions have laws that prohibit people, without approval, from interfering with whales or dolphins, “If you come across a stranded animal please contact the relevant state or territory based authority.” Dr Hawkins said it was really important to stay away from the tail of a live whale or dolphin.

“It is basically a big muscle and very dangerous if it hits you,” she said. “Dolphins and whales breathe through their blowholes so it’s also really important not to pour water down the blowhole or cover it but to wait until they speak to professionals who will advise them if there is any action they should take. “If the dolphin is alive it’s also important not to breathe in its breath and if it has cuts or open wounds not to touch them because they can have viruses which can be contagious to humans and we can transfer different pathogens to them as well and we want to make sure we don’t do that.” Dr Hawkins said once a call for assistance was received the response time varied. “Around the Tweed Coast it’s usually less than an hour,” she said. “If an animal washes up on the beach alive it might have an illness or injury and shouldn’t be moved. “They have different types of viruses they can get similar to humans and illness and some are contagious, and they can also get different types of cancer, parasitic loads, pneumonia and lung problems from stresses in the environment that can compromise their immune system and open them up to illnesses.” Dr Hawkins said it was crucial to researchers that they were notified of strandings. “Pollutants can have an influence and foreign debris can injure them and that is one of the reasons it’s so important that we can get to these animals so we can study them and understand what has affected them.” Dr Hawkins said the community can help to monitor local dolphin

populations by reporting sightings to Dolphin Research Australia. “We have a citizen science Dolphin Wat c h p rog r a m wh e r e w e a r e encouraging the community to help us monitor dolphin populations and it’s really easy,” she said. “All we ask is that if you do see a dolphin, you report it on our website. It comes through to our database and helps us to monitor local populations. “We get the community helping us out to get to know what areas dolphins are using and how they are using them, and reporting sick or deceased animals is really helpful to our understanding of what factors might be contributing to their illness or death.” Vice-President of ORRCA Leesa Pratt said children and dogs should be kept away from stranded whales, dolphins and seals. “It’s really important try to stay quiet and calm around them to stop them become stressed,” Ms Pratt told The Weekly. “People should never touch the dolphin or whale or drag a dolphin by its flipper either. “When people ring we will take them through the steps if there is any appropriate action to take until professional help arrives but whether it’s dead or alive we need people to contact the ORRCA Hotline immediately – sometimes they are rare species and important to our research.” In case of a stranding contact ORRCA: (02) 9415 3333.

Sweet Talk with Robert Hawken Harvest reaches 60 per cent BY THE end of this week over 60 percent of Condong’s cane crop will have been harvested, provided no further wet weather hampers the harvest. The dry Autumn and cool Winter growing conditions have helped the crop to ripen well and CCS (ie sugar content) is still above expectations. Condong’s crop tonnage is exceeding the estimate by approximately three per cent. As soon as fields become dry enough cane planting will continue in earnest, as several growers had already started planting prior to the rain and will be keen to finish. Although we have lost several days of harvest in the last few weeks, the rain has been very beneficial to the whole district. It is also pleasing to see that some of the state’s very dry western areas have had some rain, but much more is needed to end the drought. Many NSW Cane growers have provided post-harvest cane residue or straw from fields that have been able to be harvested green – this is mostly one-year old cane that is erect. This straw is beneficial to cattle and sheep that are fed on a high protein diet such as grains and cotton seed, as it provides a balance of roughage which is missing from their diet because of a lack of grass. This cane hay has been donated by the farmers, who are happy to get rid of the excess straw after green harvesting. Local transport companies and local drought relief volunteers have been active in donating time and transport to the drought effort. Several hay balers have worked long hours in preparing the bales of straw for transporting to the north western areas of NSW and southern Qld. We thank the growers and harvesting crews for providing the extra expense and effort of harvesting green cane to support the farmers in areas of drought. Well done all! Bye for now, work safe and stay sweet. Rob Hawken.

The rich history of Murwillumbah Meals on Wheels By Jonathon Howard MURWILLUMBAH MEALS on Wheels celebrated 50 years of dedicated service to the community on Sunday, September 9, at the Murwillumbah Services Memorial Club. Past and present board members and volunteers gathered to celebrate five decades of Murwillumbah Meals on Wheels. To find out more about the history of Murwillumbah Meals on Wheels, The Weekly spoke with local Kay Ryder, who provided the full history. The year was 1968, when Meals on Wheels commenced thanks to a dedicated band of men from the Tweed Christian Men’s Club (and their wives) who noticed that many elderly residents were not eating properly. “In February 1969 the hospital commenced cooking the meals and the number of recipients continued to grow,” Mrs Ryder said. “Cost of meals was 35 cents per meal and there should be a big thank you to the staff members from the Murwillumbah Hospital kitchen for their help with providing meals and their commitment to Meals on Wheels over the years.” Mrs Ryder said it was in 1993 that saw a big change to the Meals on Wheels service. “The Tweed Christian Men’s Club relinquished control of the service and Murwillumbah Meals on Wheels Service was born,” she said. “John Shaw was appointed President a role he held until August 8, 2003, with his resignation, Eileen Crofts was elected as President. “This position she held with great enthusiasm and diligence until October 2016, being forced to resign due to ill health.

“Eileen’s knowledge and friendship will always be remembered by those who knew her.” Mrs Ryder said Nola Bell was elected as treasurer which is a job she still holds today. “For many years Millie Higgins was voluntary co-ordinator and in March 1993, Karen Ehmann was employed as our first paid co-ordinator. “Sadly Karen passed recently and is not able to be with us today, I would like acknowledge her commitment and dedication to the Meals on Wheels Service.” Mrs Ryder said in 1993 Mount Saint Patrick College Year 10 students started delivering meals as part of their Social Justice Studies. “The students were very well received by recipients who loved the contact with the young people,” she said. “In January 2011 Meals on Wheels moved to its current premises at Golden Links Drive which created different challenges.” Mrs Ryder said during the past 50 years volunteers have supplied many elderly and infirmed people with not only healthy nutritious meals, but also companionship sometimes being the only contact many of them would have each day. “Volunteer deliverers being drawn from the community, local service clubs as well as church groups,” she said. “Without your continued support we would not have been able to provide such caring and valuable support to our recipients. “Thank you for giving so freely of your time.” Mrs Ryder said Lyn Hartley commenced as relief co-ordinator in May 2001 and in February 2006 she was appointed coordinator and has been a wonderful asset to Murwillumbah Meals on Wheels. “Lyn’s compassion and care for all connected with this service is astounding

Cutting of the Meals on Wheels 50th birthday cake

and we truly are very grateful for her service and friendship,” she said. Mrs Ryder also thanked Nerida Horton, the current relief co-ordinator, for her energy and willingness to step in as needed during the past eight years. “Also, thanks must go to all previous relief co-ordinators for their contributions to the smooth running of our service: Syama Trickey, Jennie Hall, Anne Rowan, Chris Bruce and Lyn Davies,” she said.

HAVEN BAR

“Thank you to committee members past and present for your energy and time given so freely to the Meals on Wheels Service. In closing, Mrs Ryder said she wanted to mention Alice and Arthur Thompson who have played a huge part of Meals on Wheels from the beginning and are still patrons today. “Alice has been involved in secretarial duties from the very beginning, this is no mean feat,” she said.

Top Tradies 29

TOP TRADIES When you support a local business you're not helping a CEO buy a third holiday home. Instead you're helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy to get his team jersey and a mum or dad to put food on the table. Support your local businesses by thinking and shopping local.

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. 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.

DRIVING TIPS from the NRMA’s driver training instructors to help get the most out of your driving lessons and become a safe driver in all road conditions. ATTENTIVENESS: Remaining alert at all times to what’s going on around you is important for drivers of all experience levels, not just those who are learning how to drive. Your split second reactions could mean the difference between being in a crash, or avoiding one. SCANNING THE ROAD: Many crashes happen because people only watch the car in front of them. Always scan ahead and around the car, in order to anticipate crashes before they happen.

Joan & Dave Evans

02 6672 2528

6 Quarry Road, Murwillumbah

BUFFER ZONES: It can take up to 13 metres to stop a regular car doing just 48 km/h; even more if your tyres are under inflated, it’s wet or the road is slippery. Keep ample space between you and the car in front and increase that space at higher speeds. DRIVING TO CONDITIONS: Rain, wind, glare, gravel and night driving all pose their own unexpected threats. Slow down, always drive within your comfort zone and observe advisory signs on the road; they’re there for a purpose. BLIND SPOTS: To avoid blind spots when changing lanes, always check over your shoulder first. You can also help to

73839

Ph: Holly 02 66 722 301

✓ Alternators ✓ Starters ✓ Wiring ✓ Caravans ✓ Motorhomes

reduce blind spots by ensuring your side mirrors are turned out far enough to see the entire width of the lanes beside you. DRIVING TIRED, INTOXICATED, DRUGGED OR DISTRACTED: A standard drink, some prescription drugs, doziness or having your mind elsewhere can reduce attentiveness and make reflexes slow. It’s that split second reaction that counts. PLAN YOUR ROUTE: If you’re confused about where you’re going there’s more scope for making mistakes in traffic. Slowing right down will help you absorb an unfamiliar environment and drive with more confidence.

KINGSCLIFF BEACH Bowls Club has managed to secure the services of leading pastry chefs in a move by the club to provide the best dining experience in Kingscliff. Juliana Butteri has cooked for Martha Stewart, Oprah Winfrey and the Obamas in New York where she worked at famed French restaurant Le Cirque and her husband Gui has worked as a pastry chef under Michelin Star chefs as well. Juliana worked at Sofitel in Rio de Janeiro for two years before moving to New York and landing a job as Executive Pastry Chef at Le Cirque. “I had the opportunity to work at different Le Cirque restaurants around the USA and then I was invited to work for Alain Ducasse who has 21 Michelin stars in total,” Juliana told The Weekly. “I worked with him as a sous chef and when I finished my work visa I went home for 6 months and then moved to Australia and I’ve been here for three months. “I’m very happy to be here at the Ocean’s Bistro and Cafe at Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club now. It’s a wonderful place to be, to work.” Juliana is full of enthusiasm for the renovations and making the bistro the best in Kingscliff.

“In a few months I think we are going to have a perfect kitchen and the best food in the town so we are all working towards that goal,” she said. “We had a lot of renovations last month and we changed the menu and I changed all the desserts and now everything is made here from scratch and I use only local products. “Now I know the place, I know the town so we have good, fresh local fruits and vegetables to work with that are all in season. “Everybody is excited and we would love everyone to come along and try our new menu.” Marketing Coordinator Ali Alder said they were starting to delve into takeaways, placing orders for birthday and wedding cakes but everyone who has their desserts absolutely loves them. “It’s offering a point of difference,” Ms Alder said. “There are so many cafes and restaurants around and we all tend to use the same suppliers so it’s that point of difference we are after. “The renovation has lifted the whole club and now we are offering that point of difference with the desserts but also having everything fresh and cooked to order.” Ms Alder said the Signature Brownie was the most popular dessert on the menu.

Casuarina breakdancing star on Little Big Shots

Talking

FILMS th Mia wi

ON CHESIL BEACH

Jeffrey Dunne in Sydney for the Destructive Steps and inset talking with Shane

His mother Rhondda, who works at the school part-time to pay for Jeffrey’s dancing and trips, said they had applied last year, were contacted in December and filmed in April this year. “We had to do lots of videos and supply them to use in the show and then it was filmed at Sydney at Fox Studios,” Mrs Dunne said. “We were excited to see how it worked behind the scenes and it was just exciting meeting Shane and getting to talk to everyone and meeting other parents was really great.” Mrs Dunne said Jeffrey wasn’t nervous at all. “He was just so casual about it,” she said. “Shane was really nice and very funny, just easy and funny just like he is on the show. “He makes everyone so comfortable, so it was very easy.”

Jeffrey’s dream is to be a part of the Red Bull BC One team. “One person from each country gets chosen so it’s a collection of all the best dancers around the world competing for a place,” his mother said. “That’s what he plans on doing when he gets older. “He just came home and got straight back into training as he has a competition coming up. Jeffrey said he plans to train hard every year before he tries out for the BC One competition. “It’s the biggest breakdancing event in the world,” Jeffrey said. “You have to be over 14 so I would probably go when I was 15 or 16. “I’m very happy about my career and what’s going on but if it wasn’t for Mum and Dad I wouldn’t be breakdancing or doing any of this stuff.”

The short novel On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan was released in 2007 to great acclaim - and created also a bit of controversy when it was nominated for the Booker Prize. Ten years later the novel has been turned into a film by the same title. The adaption for the screen is by the same author McEwan, and the film is directed by Dominic Cooke, a well know theatre director who makes his feature film directorial debut at 51 years of age. The movie was filmed on Chesil Beach in Dorset, England, and it is anchored by the very effective and affective performances of the main cast, Saoirse Roinan (Brooklyn, Lady Bird) and Billy Howle. The story revolves about a honeymoon gone terribly wrong. Florence and Edward, a young couple in prudish 1960s’ England, meet after graduating from their respective universities. Their interests and sensibilities, while not identical, seem perfectly matched. He is a history major, she a classical violinist with her own burgeoning quartet. They fall in love quickly and engage in a pleasant courtship while imagining a life ahead full of interesting conversations about politics, art and ideas, punctuated with leisurely picnics and walks in the woods. Their intimacy seems perfect, and their love is surely built to last. They meet each other’s families and eventually decide to get married, despite their differences in background and social status - Florence is from a proudly upscale middle-class family - led in the film by Emily Watson as a haughty mother - while Edward’s family is freer, but more problematic, as his mother was brain-damaged by an accident. However, the dynamics between the two newlyweds who are both virgins go through a dramatic change during their first night together spent in a seaside hotel, with lifelong consequences for both…

A TEN-YEAR-OLD breakdancer from Casuarina has shown actor Shane Jacobson how to bust a move on Channel 7’s kids’ talent show Little Big Shots, which aired on Sunday, September 9. Jeffrey Dunne, who has previously appeared in The Weekly, recently won the Under 13s at Destructive Steps, Australia’s biggest breakdancing competition and said the experience on Little Big Shots was amazing. “Little Big Shots was very exciting and fun, and just an awesome experience,” Jeffrey said. “Shane was very, very funny - he made a lot of funny dad jokes. “As soon as I did my first part I felt a bit nervous but when I got used to it, it was easier.” The Year 5 Pacific Coast Christian School student said the experience helped him get used to dancing and talking in front of crowds.

Bogangar students make it into finals of Tournament of the Minds

A TEAM of Bogangar Public School Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students have represented their school at the State finals of Tournament of the Minds in Sydney on Sunday, September 9. Class teacher Vanessa O’Brien travelled with the six students who won the STEM competition in the regional final to put them into the NSW State Finals. “It’s only our second year’s competing so it’s very exciting,” Ms O’Brien said. “We raised over $600 through the school to fund the trip and the P & C contributed $600 too.” The students are part of the Bogangar Public School Gifted and Talented Programme and Cooper Falvey said that competing in the regionals was fun and they had worked well as a team. “It was a competition between all schools and we had to create our own animal species that we found on a tropical island we came up with a model of a bird/jellyfish/ crab cross,” Cooper said. “We named the model Hailey because we had another student on the team called

Hailey (Peet) and she went to Bali so couldn’t come to Sydney.” It was an engineering challenge so the students had to build a robotic model and shoot a short video re-enacting how they created the creature. Ms O’Brien said the regional judges said they were the funniest team. “We got the humour award. The video was very funny,” she said. “The trip to Sydney was epic - our alarms went off at 5.30 and we didn’t get back until 8.30 but it was a great day. “The kids did really well in the challenges and presentation and though we didn’t walk away with a prize we walked away winners for making it there.” The tournament was held at the University of NSW at Kensington. “The kids thought the uni was amazing and we got to sit in the big auditorium which was so inspiring,” Ms O’Brien said. “It’s such a beautiful building and location so that was awesome and we went out to a Mexican restaurant for a celebratory dinner and the kids loved it.”

THE BEAUTIFUL community of Uki is ready to spring into the annual Ukitopia Festival this month with the fun starting tonight (Thursday, September 13). Organisers have been busy in preparation for the festival throughout the past three months including Maya Krasna, who said Ukitopia will be celebrating a decade this year. “In 2018 Ukitopia is celebrating 10 years of independent art, fashion and music,” she previously told The Weekly. “As with previous years, Ukitopia will take place in various locations around the Uki village with events designed for the whole family, plus it’s free.” Maya said fun and creativity were held in equal esteem in this special event that is run independently by a dedicated band of volunteers. “The festival starts tonight with the opening night of the Images of Uki exhibition in the Uki School of Arts,” she said. “A wide variety of mediums and artistic styles are exhibited, with the public having the option to vote on their favourite art works to discover the artist who will win the People’s Choice Award. “Riley Jones will be performing from the stage to enhance the experience.” The entertainment continues on Friday, September 14, with the Fashion Show from 7pm to 9pm and doors open at 6.30pm. “Nine cutting edge local designers will showcase their creations,” she said.

“This is no ordinary fashion show, this is an exploration of the realms where fashion meets art, be prepared to be amazed. “This will be accompanied by vibrant musical and dance performances. “Creatively presented food and drinks will be available and entry is only $7.” Maya said the extremely popular Crafternoon event will be held from 10am to 3pm on Saturday, September 15, with a range of free craft activities and workshops for kids and adults including foodie delights, chai and face painting. “There will be musical entertainment and busking on the Village Green stage from 1pm to 5pm. The Uki Café will also be hosting Tapas and Tunes from 5pm to 7pm and there will be an after party with live music and dancing with Mr Troy at the Mount Warning Hotel from 7pm. Sunday will be the last day of the festival with Images of Uki open all day and the announcement of the esteemed People’s Choice Awards at 2pm. “Enter Ukitopia, a family friendly celebration for all ages, in one of the Tweed Valley’s most beautiful and interesting villages - Uki, and it is free,” Maya said. The art show is open to artists of all ages, in all mediums, for anyone in the 2484 postcode. The entry fee is $7 per art work, with a maximum of three entries per person.

Sailability receives back up motor SAILABILITY ON Tweed has recently accepted a gift in the form of a small outboard motor from the Tweed Heads Men’s Shed that will keep the club moving if any other motors breakdown. The gift was presented by Men’s Shed representative Kevin Saunders and accepted by the Sailability President David Sharpe. “The outboard was donated to the Men’s Shed which then carried out a total rebuild to ensure it would be reliable,” Mr Sharpe said. “The motor will be kept as a backup motor to ensure Sailability can continue to operate should problems occur with the current motor. Sailability on Tweed continues to operate a successful sailing program for the Tweed community after it was established in 2007. “Each Wednesday about 30 keen disabled clients come along to enjoy their time out on the water,” Mr Sharpe said. “This only happens because of the dedication of a small group of volunteers who give up their Wednesdays to launch

and sail the seven small sailing boats as well as the safety boat.” The club is also putting the call out for more volunteers who can spare some time to ensure the Sailability program remains viable. “We can teach you to sail so why not come down and check out our operation,” Mr Sharpe said. Sailability on Tweed operates from the foreshore on Terranora Inlet, adjacent to the boat ramp off Dry dock Road, South Tweed Heads - just past the Pacific Highway overpass and opposite The Palms Village. There is a car park right at the site and a grassy area to relax as well as public toilet facilities. The sailing area is well protected and safe. There is wheelchair access to the pontoon and sailors can be winched in and out of the dinghies with safety slings if required. A small café across the road serves good food and coffee at reasonable prices. For further information about Sailability or to volunteer and get involved please phone Mr Sharpe on 0407 144 021.

CJM Legal step up their commitment to Tweed

THE TEAM at Cronin James McLaughlin Lawyers (CJM Lawyers) are stepping up their commitment to the Tweed Shire by recently establishing a new firm at Chinderah servicing the Northern Rivers. CJM Lawyers, like its partners, was born on the Gold Coast and created with a view to servicing its clients to the most professional level and drawing on their extensive local knowledge. In 2017, the partners Ashley Cronin, Kent James and Shannon McLaughlin expanded the firm and acquired KL Legal to service the growing Northern NSW and Southern Gold Coast regions. KL Legal was founded by Ken Lee in 1995 and is proudly the Tweed’s longest serving legal practice. In 2017, Ken decided to sell the practice to enjoy retirement and the practice has recently rebranded to CJM Lawyers. “The firm continues to employ the solicitors and conveyancers you know and trust, who are largely long-term members of the Tweed area and all have a strong community focus,” Mr Cronin said. “Senior Associate Lara Gamble has been the Pro Bono Solicitor for local Tweed Shire charity Friends of the Pound since 2011, a well-known organisation which rehomes abandoned animals. “Our expert legal secretaries, Mel and Peta have both been residents of the Tweed Shire since 1981 and our senior conveyancer, Kellie has been with the firm since it first opened its doors in 1995.” Mr James said the flood that hit the Tweed Shire in April 2017 saw the team band together and join the local flood support, offering fresh food, hot drinks and toiletry supplies in the firm’s driveway which was lucky to escape the water.

CJM Legal partners Ashley Cronin, Kent James and Shannon McLaughlin

“We are also involved in supporting local schools, offering an excellence award each year at Terranora Public School, St James Primary School and Centaur Primary School,” he said.

Read about the partners:

Kent has the ability to see the big picture and influence a positive outcome for his clients. “CJM Lawyers aim to build on Ken’s vision of providing expert legal services with a personalised local touch,” Mr McLaughlin said. “We are centrally located to the southern Gold Coast and Tweed Shire and have free parking at the front door, with handicapped and elderly facilities.” To find out more about CJM Legal see their advertisement in this week’s edition on page 12 for a full list of services or phone: (07) 6674 0444 anytime.

TWEED SHIRE emergency department presentations and elective surgeries remained steady during 2018, according to Northern NSW Local Health District. NNSWLHD Acting Chief Executive Lynne Weir did highlight the entire Northern Rivers was experiencing higher demands with 428 more presentations to emergency departments across the district overall. She also highlighted 83.9 per cent of patients started treatment on time, a significant improvement of 4.5 percentage points compared to the same quarter last year. Murwillumbah experienced a 1.1 per cent fewer presentations to the emergency department this quarter, with 4,311 patients, and treatment times remained relatively stable and 90.3 per cent of patients were treated on time, and 87.4 per cent left the ED within four hours. The Tweed Hospital saw a slight decrease in attendances, more patients started treatment on time, up to 86.6 per cent, compared to 83.5 per cent last year. Murwillumbah’s elective surgeries remained steady compared to last year with median waiting time for ear, nose and throat surgery improved significantly from 278 days last year to 191 days this year. Tweed continues to maintain an overall on-time elective surgery performance of 98.5 per cent of 842 people who underwent surgery this quarter. “Northern NSW hospitals continue to see increasing numbers of patients through our doors, and our staff do an incredible job delivering the high levels of patient care that people in our communities rely on,” Ms Weir said. The 2018-19 budget for NNSWLHD is over $833 million, an increase of nearly $47 million on the 2017-18 annualised budget. This is the highest increase in annualised expense budget out of all rural NSW Health Districts. Between mid-2012 and mid-2018 NNSWLHD has increased its workforce by an additional 655 full time equivalent staff – an increase of over 17 per cent, including 140 more doctors and 183 more nurses. The percentage of patients being transferred from ambulance to hospital staff within 30 minutes also increased 1.7 percentage points this quarter and reached 92.3 per cent. Across the district, each of the eight hospitals featured in the report saw increased percentages of patients starting treatment on time, with Lismore Base, Ballina District, and Byron Central having significant improvements of more than five per cent in this area.

Featured Business

Tweed Valley Water Supplies – still in business after 23 years. Tweed Valley Water Supplies has been delivering water all over the Tweed Shire for the last 23 years. The founder and owner of the company, Scott Ousby, has worked in the transport industry for some 40 years. He has the experience to tackle all driveways and, with a smaller turning circle, our trucks can squeeze into smaller sizes than most. We provide quality, potable water right to your tank. In the last few years the company underwent a management restructure and we are now operating with a new team and a new truck under Scott’s guiding hand. Scott is a local man who always makes time for a friendly chat and prides himself on his easy-going nature and efficiency. We also supply a full range of water storage tanks and pumps. Tanks are available in all shapes, colours and sizes and we can provide complete installation customised to your needs. Also available for concrete tank refurbishments and repairs. Replacing a concrete tank can be an expensive endeavour and we effectively repair your tank to last at least another 10 years for a fraction of the cost. We are happy to

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

Holding with Shot Judy Tuckey POTTSVILLE’S TRIPLES final with George Moore (S), Marie Comerford and Sue Lawrance challenging Julie Bridges (S), Jan Appleton and Trish Field began with the teams fairly evenly matched during the early ends. Scoring 6 shots during the 13, 14, and 15th ends indicated a breakaway by team Moore as they then dominated during the remainder of the contest to close out the game with a substantial margin to claim the title. Ocean Shores completed their Fours championship final amid a tough duel with Barbara Sprengel (S), Judy Williams, Glenys Johnston and Johnnie Busch challenging Lyn McGowran (S), Margaret Enright, Janine Howell and Marj Wilks for the title. Team Sprengel was scoreless for the first three ends but picked up to even the card by the 7th end.

Tweed Valley Weekly Locals Supporting Locals A count of 5 to team McGowran on the 10th end gave them a handy six shot buffer. This was followed by exchanged counts of 3. Two more ends, and team McGowran was holding a 18-11 up advantage. Sprengel and co. then knuckled down and, only conceding one shot during the next six ends, evened the score to 19-19 with one end left to play. In a heart stopping finale, team Sprengel held on well to secure that one special shot to declare victory and claim the Champions title. The Lorraine McCormick and Kerry Dexter Vs. Lyn Proudfoot and Margaret Darby Pairs final at Brunswick Heads was an exciting closely fought encounter. With the scores at 6-6 on end 6, 13-13 on the 11th and 15-15 on the 13th, it was anyone’s game. Picking up four shots on the next 3 ends gave team Proudlock a four shot advantage. A fight back from McCormick and co. during the last two ends didn’t quite make the grade with Proudlock and Darby claiming victory 2 shots up. A great performance from both teams. See you on the greens. Good bowling everyone.

Big fleet for Passage Race At the helm with Bill Fenlon

22 BOATS competed in the Fifth Annual Tweed River Passage Race on Sunday, sailed in sunny conditions with a variable light southerly breeze and a strong ebbing tide. The race started with a light sou-westerly wind and the fleet quickly drifted away from the start at Condong, with all Corsairs setting spinnakers. The breeze came and went; the fleet remained tightly together as they drifted past Tumbulgum, but after winding through the Stotts island narrows, boats started to spread out. It was a day of light and variable winds which frustrated the fleet all the way down the river until it finally settled down at Chinderah. The final leg along the Fingal reach gave the fleet a steady breeze and an opportunity to set spinnakers and have a fast finish. The fastest boat completed the river passage in 3 hours and slowest was 4 hours. This year’s “winners circle” was dominated by visitors; line honors going to Southport Team, Jabin & Zac Crisp in NS14 1592 “Enter the Dragon”, completing the river passage in 3 hours 6 mins, although it took a long time to separate from the fleet, the freshening afternoon breeze in the lower river, gave them the speed to get ahead and win by five minutes. The second boat to finish, 4mins 30 seconds behind, was Laser “T”, (Tom Slocombe), from Paradise Point and third placed Laser “Dreadnought” (Peter Fell) from Tweed.

4th was Tweed Laser “Bluey”, (Kate Yeomans) then 5th local Laser, Silent Partner”, (John Heywood). The Lasers got 7 of the top 8 positions and enjoyed a very close race.

Tapped in to the waves

With Terry Tappa’ Teece

Steph Grabs a Tiny Tractor AND KEEPS THE 7TH TITLE ON TRACK STEPHANIE GILMORE is still well and truly on track for a record 7th World Title after her second place at the Surf Ranch Pro. She could not quite put her dream run together on Finals Day, but Kingscliff’s supergal’s brilliant performance on her last run moved her up to second place over World Title contender, Lakey Peterson and 16-year-old rookie Caroline Marks. The US surfers both failed to improve their scorelines in the final round. Gilmore will retain the yellow Jeep Leader Jersey and has increased her lead over Peterson heading into the Roxy Pro France. Gilmore is on 61,175 points with second ranked Peterson on 54,260 points.

“You just have to take a few deep breaths and just focus on what you can do,” Gilmore said. “It was a stressful moment and I just had to make a right. I haven’t made one all today and I didn’t think it would beat the 9. It’s nice to hold onto the lead. Lakey (Peterson) is fighting super hard. She’s a tough competitor, all of them are. But, now we’ll head to France and see what happens there.” With the Roxy Pro France starting October 4, Gilmore could seal the deal with a good result in the European leg. After that it is Honolua Bay on the Island of Maui, Hawaii, where Gilmore has sealed the deal on many of her last 6 World Titles. Steph is in sparkling form, and I think that she will have the World Title wrapped up in France, and she will do a victory lap at Honolua Bay and win that one as well. You heard it first here folks!

Tweed Coast Raiders 2018 NRRRL Premiers By Jo Kennett THE TWEED Coast Raiders have made club history with a 24-4 thrashing of the Ballina Seagulls in the NRRRL Grand Final at Ballina in front of one of the biggest crowds that the competition has ever seen. The Raiders went in as underdogs with Ballina having won four out of the last five premierships and both their games against Tweed Coast this season by two points. The Tweed Coast team arrived in a limo bus as if they had already won and to the huge crowd of their supporters that travelled down they had, just by being there. The Hillbillies easily took out the battle of the tunnels but everyone was expecting it to be a tight game, so there was a brief moment of shock when the Raiders came charging out and Scotty ‘Roller door’ McLennan crossed for a try in the first five minutes. The crowd erupted. With Tahne Robinson converting it was 6-0 until 10 minutes in when Ballina scored to take it to 6-4. The conversion hit the crossbar in what proved to be a sign of things to come. Both sides had plenty of opportunities and played the rest of the half with good defence, keeping the score unchanged going into half time, though it was the Raiders who always looked dominant. There was a brief crisis at half time when the beer ran out and when the Raiders came back on Vikings roared, Bridie twerked and there were laughs aplenty. Daryl Brooks continued the Raiders after-the-break tradition of scoring straight up, breaking away out wide to cross and take it to 10-4. Ballina gave away a penalty which Tahne Robinson converted before

Dan Willoughby crossed for a try to take it to 16-4 with the conversion. The Hillbillies were singing, dancing, laughing and screaming the whole game while the Seagulls supporters could barely be seen or heard - even when they were still in with a great chance early in the second half. There was no sea of blue for the Ballina boys who have worked hard all year. Perhaps after winning four out of the last five premierships the excitement had just worn off. In stark contrast the Hillbillies fence nearly caved in when the

The nail in the coffin for Ballina

Raiders scored their first try and the crowd went wild. There was a sense of destiny in the air. As the game drew to a close the Raiders attacked again and Guy Lanston got a great pass away to Connor Hickey who crossed under the goal posts like he’d been waiting his whole life for this moment. The police couldn’t contain the Hillbillies who were surging on the edge of the field with 10 minutes to go. With a conversion from Tahne it was 24-4 and when the hooter went off the Hillbillies ran on mass onto the field as the boys

The Raiderettes were in fine form on Grand Final Day

took the trophy for the first time in the Tweed Coast Raiders 33-year history. The always energetic Dan Willoughby was named Man of the Match and Tahne Robinson said he couldn’t describe how it felt to take the championship. “This is the best feeling ever,” he said. “Our club is just a family. “Everyone is so close.” Coach Brent Kite said he knew the Raiders had it in them. “I knew how good a team Ballina was and they kept coming to their credit and at half time it was even,” he told The Weekly. “It was just really nice seeing my guys achieve their potential. “When it comes together like that with a big runaway win in the grand final it’s very pleasing. “Tahne was new to the club and we needed him - he played with composure and an old head today.” Captain Guy Lanston dedicated the win to Justin Cullen, whose death on a surf trip in the Maldives with several of the players sparked the rebirth of the club. The team was born from that bond, and that love and sense of brotherhood, of family, has been at the heart of the club’s culture. Raiders stalwart Paul O’Brien said the club came back with a three-year plan, teaming up with Lower Clarence for their Under 18s because their seniors had folded as well. “They thanked us for making them feel a part of the club and we appreciated them joining us,” O’Brien said. “Now they have a full club as well and no one gets paid either and it’s working. “The players play for each other and the love of the game and everyone has been amazing.” No one gets paid, not even the brilliant Brent Kite; it’s all about the love and it shows in the heart the team plays with. Drew and Guy Lanston, who led the team for half a season each, have been outstanding captains, leading by example, playing hard, but more than anything playing fair and showing respect for everyone. The whole team has been an inspiration to the young club members. Drew Lanston said the culture of the club was amazing. “All the new players coming in

say they have never seen anything like it before,” he said. “The Hillbillies, the players, the trainers, the coaches, the volunteers and everyone involved make the culture and that’s what everyone plays for – each other. “We will regroup and come back next year and try to go back to back.” Brent Kite said he wasn’t responsible for the culture but that was “the biggest ace” up the club’s sleeve. “Cory Maher and Josh Sattler, the coaches from last year, the Lanston boys, they’re the backbone of the club,” he said. “All the players have done so great.” The NRL veteran said it was just a great example of “guys playing for the right reasons.” “They showed me that even at my level it’s not all about the cash,” he said. “I was able to come back here with the Raiders and get something that’s more valuable than money. “I’ll cherish these times. It might just be a little country comp but it means so much to so many people, myself included.” Back at the club after-party the Hillbillies roared when the players finally arrived and then the Buggy Brothers struck up ‘We are the Champions’ and the club went off. What a day, what a team, what a year - it will go down in the annals of club history as one of the best park footy finals ever held in the country. Well done to the Raiders, the Raiderettes, the Hillbillies and everyone involved at the club for a brilliant year. Raiders stalwart Paul O’Brien said it had been an awesome year. “The players have done so much to bring the community together and what a fantastic impact the community made,” he said. “Scotty (roller-door McLennan) said that he got all the young

guys together in the centre of the field and told them to take a deep breath, look around at the support, take it in and enjoy because you won’t see it again. “This is what rugby league should be about: bringing communities and players together for the love of the game.” Well done to the mighty Mustangs Reserve Grade side and the Cudgen Under 18s and their teams for a fantastic effort in making it into the Grand Finals. It wasn’t their day but they will be back better than ever next year. From us at the Weekly a massive thanks to the team who helped out with the weekly reports Tammy, Nathan and Debbie at the Mustangs, Pat at the Hornets, and Mikey with the odd word-grenade from Cale at the Raiders. It was a huge team effort from all three Tweed clubs in the NRRRL this year; from all the supporters, the sponsors, trainers, assistants, coaches and the amazing volunteers

Justin King celebrating the win

who NRRRL Chairman Robin Harley called “the champions of the show”, so congratulations to you all. To the men and women of the Mustangs, the Hornets and the Raiders who worked so hard all year and put their bodies on the line, week in week out, to bring us so many great memories, so much excitement, laughter, love and joy, to the players, warriors one and all, we salute you. See you in 2019.
