Extreme heat health warning

If you do choose to cool down in the warm days ahead, Portland Pool is a great choice with lots of shady spots to sit during the heat of the day and a good family friendly environment for the kids to enjoy. Come to the pool and relax for Australia Day 2017. Pool Opened from 10-6pm, Music from 2pm, Kiosk facilities opened from 10- 6pm Lots of fun for the whole family. Two Pools – Two diving boards Lifeguard on duty High temperatures are expected during the coming days in rural NSW and the Western and Far Western NSW Local Health Districts are urging residents to follow some simple precautions to beat the heat, keep cool and stay safe. Coordinator Environmental Health Services, Ingo Steppat, advises people of all ages to take care and avoid heat exhaustion by protecting themselves against the sun and heat. “People need to be alert for the symptoms associated with heat exhaustion in themselves or others, especially young children and the elderly,” Ingo said. “People need to make the most of shade, have access to well ventilated or air conditioned areas and stay inside

during the hottest part of the day and ensure they drink plenty of water.” Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, faintness, and dizziness, loss of appetite, weakness, headache, and vomiting. Some may suffer from an increased body temperature or an increased breathing rate on extreme heat days. Don’t forget to check in on family and friends to ensure they are well. Heat exhaustion symptoms can occur up to 72 hours after an exposure to a heat event, so people are asked to stay alert. People with existing health conditions such as heart problems, diabetes or hypertension should take extra care in the heat. If you are aware of anyone that might be at risk, who lives on their own, make a point of checking that

they are okay. Other people who may be at risk of heat exhaustion include outdoor workers, people in workplaces with inadequate cooling systems and those undertaking strenuous physical activities. If possible try to carry out the bulk of the activity during the coolest periods of the day. Should you have concerns about your own health due to the heat, contact your GP or attend your local health facility. If you come across someone who you believe requires immediate medical attention for Heat Impacts then call 000 without delay for an ambulance.

From the Editor

Welcome to the Village Voice for 2017!

I trust you had a safe and enjoyable Christmas with just the right balance of fun and frivolity. As we only get the 2 weeks off per year, we tried to make the most of it and squeezed in a trip to the South Coast, a few days lazing around home and some regional day trips locally. This time of year is so special for me and the family as we get to spend entire weeks together without a laptop even being turned on, and no deadlines looming that take up my focus. A few highlights from our trips were the simple pleasures of life: Will catching his first fish and his eyes lighting up when he started reeling it in, Olivia proclaiming we had to let it go because she was a vegan now and she loved all the animals, Tom suddenly becoming a man at some point last year and no longer a little boy, and last but not least a particularly spectacular rain storm resulting in an incredible double rainbow over the water in Batemans Bay on a date night with Kellie. It reminded me so much of life can be spent chasing ‘that’ achievement or ‘this’ goal, yet the simplest of pleasures are usually free and will be missed if you are not in the moment. I am sad to say I am not always the best at this, I tend to work far too hard for far too log, all the while potentially missing those simple moments that will never be repeated. One thing I didn’t do this year was set any weightloss resolutions, or goals. I am so changed in my own mindset now I found it was not necessary to set myself a goal for losing weight. I am consistently getting a little bit healthier each week now, because for whatever reason, 2016 was the year that everything just clicked in that part of my life. I read some amazing books and watched some amazing films over the break, one thing that really took my interest was the new focus on minimalism that I am noticing in my own world. I watched a great documentary titled - Minimalism: A documentary about the important things - it is a very interesting film, with some great examples of how many people around the world are embracing this philosophy. Interestingly we have a contribution from my friend Matt Trounce, or Rev Matt, from Lithgow’s Uniting Church on exactly this subject and his own experience on page XX this week. Have a read and see what you think.

2017 is shaping up to be a great year for the Village Voice and I am excited to share this journey with you all for another year, and look forward to you sending in your thoughts and issues over the coming months. We will be focussing on bringing you even more interesting content, a lot more local and community focussed news, and we will be endeavouring to tackle some of the more important issues facing the region and doing our best to try and be part of the solution in seeing things move forward. Here’s to you and your family for 2017, may you enjoy a happy, safe and fruitful new year, and may we all work together to ensure we continue living in a safe and prosperous region for the year ahead. Regards, Rich Evans PS: We were advised of an interesting glitch in our TV guide this week, by one of our readers, John. He mentioned that after the channel redistribution last year, there was a mix up in some of the channel data. We have spoken to the data provider and we hopefully now have that resolved, if you do notice any discrepancies, please let us know on editor@ villagevoice.net.au

It may seem like summer, but it certainly doesn’t sound like it. Summer just isn’t summer without the raucus buzzing of cicadas resonating in your ears. Only the male cicada makes the shrill mating noise and agitated female cicadas will often gravitate towards other summer sounds, like lawnmowers, mistaking them for ‘singing’ males. One of the world’s loudest insects, a cicada’s deafening buzz produces sound to 120 decibels - the pain threshold of human hearing. As kids, many summer afternoons were spent climbing trees to catch cicadas, that were then kept in a shoebox under the bed. Unfortunately the captive cicadas would only last a few days, because they needed tree sap to survive. The differentcoloured cicadas enthralled us, and we knew each species by its common name: Black Prince, Yellow Monday, Double Drummer, Cherry Nose and Greengrocer. The name ‘cicada’ is Latin, meaning ‘tree cricket’. But cicadas are not locusts and aren’t considered a pest. They don’t sting or bite and are harmless to humans. But cicadas have the longest life cycle of any insect, ranging from two to seventeen years depending on their location. After mating, the female lays several hundred eggs in plant stems or soft twigs. A few weeks later, the eggs hatch into a laval ‘nymph’, which drops to the ground and burrows down 10 to 40cm, seeking out a tree root and living off its sap. The nymphs spend six or seven years underground, continuously shedding and regrowing their skin until fully-grown. It’s still a mystery how cicadas know when it’s time to surface, but they always emerge from early November through to March. When the nymph surfaces, it climbs a tree trunk and enters its final stage; laboriously shedding its hard outer shell to emerge as a winged adult. Above ground, cicadas live from two to four weeks, spending the time mating and avoiding predators, especially birds. Cicadas are a popular traditional food in several countries, including China. The taste is a bit like chicken, apparently. But, as summer wanes and you’re just getting used to them, they’re gone! And their going is as odd and as evocative as their coming. Many people are relieved when the cacophony of cicada ‘singing’ is over. Others, like myself, are always sad to see these extraordinary little creatures go.

Unemployment: Lithgow's leaders need to get 'creative' By The Magpie Whisperer

A lack of local jobs and Lithgow's reluctance to shed its reliance on traditional industries is seeing families that have lived in the area for generations forced to relocate. Others, wanting to remain in Lithgow, have had to find work as far afield as Bathurst, the Hunter Valley and Sydney. While there's been some improvement in the past 12 months, Lithgow still tops the Central West unemployment figures. Addressing unemployment is a priority for Lithgow City Council, but maybe a 'creative' approach is now warranted. In fact, there's never been a better time to nurture and support local creativity. Today, more than half a million Australians work in the creative sector and it's one of the fastest-growing, most dynamic segments of the national economy. Small scale creative businesses can bring imaginative innovation to all aspects of our lives, but they are equally important for creating much-needed jobs. The creative economy - activities that trade with creativity, knowledge and information - includes software development, digital content, architecture, design, fashion, advertising, plus the visual and performing arts.

Issue 143 - 13 January 2017

Lithgow Council has always supported local creative and cultural endeavours, to some extent. But if creative businesses are to be taken seriously, then an integrated approach is necessary to help grow the sector and create opportunities and local jobs. Investment in infrastructure is the first part, especially digital infrastructure. The second part is to invest in creative and artistic people to produce the right environment for success. Growth in this area requires access to money, markets and networks, and you need connected people to bring all these things together. Given the growing role creative services play in today's mainstream Australian economy, a Lithgow Council resolution to support creative individuals and businesses by providing incentives and introducing new sources of capital, investment and funding in fresh ideas, prototypes and products would seem a no-brainer. In any event, people want to know what their council is doing about the things that matter to them, and unemployment is a prime concern. In these tough times the Lithgow community - particularly those families struggling because of unemployment - needs constant reassurance that their local council is a proactive one. And living up to its promises.

The community led competition, Spark Tank, was established to kick start innovative home-grown energy solutions in Central West NSW. The NSW Government is supporting the Bathurst based community organisation, Skillset, to deliver the Spark Tank campaign. “The 13 semi-finalists have demonstrated ideas with great potential to boost energy productivity for homes, businesses and communities,” Mr Toole said. “Reducing energy costs is vital to the long-term sustainability of communities and industries across Central West NSW.” The semi-finalists will pitch their project ideas to a group of energy experts at a Gala Night on Thursday 16 March 2017 in a bid to be one of three projects to secure start-up funding as well as ongoing support to bring their ideas to life. Senior Manager of Skillset Environment Ashley Bland said he and his team would now help the semi-finalists to incubate their ideas and build new networks. “We look forward to helping the semi-finalists continue to explore their concepts, innovate and give legs to their ideas,” Mr Bland said. “We’re excited that three of these project ideas will ultimately win Spark Tank and receive support for their energy efficiency projects from a $50,000 innovator funding pool as well as mentoring worth $25,000 and other support provided by Spark Tank sponsors. “These winners can turn their ideas into realities and Central West NSW can look forward to three great local energy efficiency projects.” For more information on the program and semi-finalists visit http://www.sparktank.com.au/

Health District welcomes new Board Members

The new year will welcome a refreshed Board for Western NSW Local Health District, with Health Minister Jillian Skinner recently appointing a new Chairperson and four new members. Following the end of his six year tenure as Chair, Dr Robin Williams will step down at the end of the year and Mr Scott Griffiths PSM will take on the important role. Mr Griffiths has been a member of the Board for the past six years, and Chair of the Finance and Performance sub- Committee for the same period. Western NSW Local Health District Chief Executive, Mr Scott McLachlan said Dr Williams and the Board have been instrumental in leading the organisation towards a clearer vision and pioneering the introduction of key health strategies, including the very successful Integrated Care initiative. “Robin will be missed on the Board and will continue practicing at Molong as a General Practitioner. He has recently been appointed as a Director of the Western NSW Primary Health Network governing Board and everyone wishes him the very best for the future.” “Robin has been instrumental in helping implement the Integrated Care initiative, a system of care and support that is based around the needs of individuals, which has seen incredible success in a number of sites across the District.” “I would also like to thank the hard work and dedicated years of service from outgoing Board Members, Patricia Doolan PSM and Graham Parker.” “We’re incredibly privileged to have such a high calibre Board joining our organisation in 2017, to continue our journey in delivering high-quality care to patients, closer to their homes.” Incoming Board Chair, Mr Griffiths said he is looking forward to the new role and will maintain a firm focus on helping the organisation facilitate healthier rural people and thriving communities. “I and indeed the entire Board will work alongside the Executive and staff to support the Health District focus on priority areas, including Aboriginal Health, Chronic and Complex Care, Maternal and Child Health, Mental Health and Substance Abuse, and Older Persons Care,” Mr Griffiths said. “This is a very exciting time to make meaningful advances in rural health care and here in Western NSW Local Health District we are committed to giving our children a healthier start to life, creating better access to our health services, and delivering uncompromising care to more than 270,000 people who reside in our region.”

Increased risk of grass fires in Chifley / Lithgow Team area

The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is warning of an increased risk of grass fires, due to recent rain and vegetation growth.

A life of Service to Music Performance and Education On Christmas Day 2016, Judith “

Contributed by Don White, Lithgow City Band

a Band for civic duties. And she accepted. That was over twenty-five years ago –and since this rebirth, the Band has both flourished and floundered. It survives. And perhaps even now it may be due for a great leap forward. A band consist of players – and they come and they go. There are members of this Band who have known Judy for longer than I. We have two members, Billy and Pip, now in their twenties with University degrees in their pocket, who joined the Band at the tender age of nine. They still play with us when they can as much out of loyalty and kinship to Judy as to a love of the Band. Others have come and gone but the Band holds true with a small number of stalwarts who are the glue that sticks. They bind the Band together and with a little help from other Band friends, as far flung as Liverpool and Orange City, the Band has faithfully discharged its civic duties with Judy as our Musical Director. But without Judy, this year has been tough for the Band. And yet ironically, it is the quality of toughness that Judy brings to the table. What I most admired of Judy was her fierce support for the needs of the Band – whether in confronting Council about the need for a new roof for the ageing Band Hall or requesting, nay, expecting Council support for its service to the local community, Judy’s voice was loud, clear and visionary. It was Judy who nurtured new members of the Band and set them on the true path of musical development. Many musicians are indebted to her for the guidance she gave them. In the last few years, as travelling companion with Judy each week, driving home after Band rehearsal, we chatted and shared anecdotes from our lives. And now as I try to reflect on these exchanges I realise how difficult it is to capture the essence, the complexity of someone in a few words – but I try. I will always see Judy as a strong, feisty lady, proudly Christian, passionate about music with high expectations for all and a deep love of family. Vale Judy Kinnear. (5/01/1935- 25/12/2016)

Editor’s Note On a recent roadtrip through the Bylong Valley, I pulled over on the side of the road to - answer a call of nature. I was stopped for no more than 2 minutes, however, as I began to drive of, I smelt a burning smell. At first worried it was something with my car, I was horrified to see the grass under my car smouldering where the obviously very hot exhaust system had been too close to the very dry grass. Some water and lots of stamping ensured that it was well out before I left the scene, but I still held my breathe a little as I drove back that way the following day. It can happen so easily...

A service to celebrate her life was held at Hoskins Church Lithgow on Wednesday 4th January. Here the congregation of family, friends and members of the wider Lithgow community were reminded of the significant threads of Judy’s life greatly enriched by the gift of a large and loving family and a life-time passion for music. From an early age music became Judy’s main pursuit as she forged her natural music giftedness in piano and voice. And of course, her love of music was encouraged in the family with all six of her children studying music in a variety of orchestral instruments. It was not unexpected then, that all Judy’s grandchildren have been imbued with this same love of music. “The fruit does not fall far from the tree.” Perhaps it was inevitable too, that Judy’s desire to share her love of music performance led her to a successful life in teaching music and urged her to embrace new challenges in music throughout her working life. From teaching voice and piano it seemed a natural progression for her to create opportunities for young people to perform successfully in choral and instrumental groups from the local communities. Judy did this for many years. But who would have thought that all this musical experience was leading to her becoming the Musical Director of a brass band with a rich legacy of 130 years? Well it happened. At a time when Lithgow City Band had reached a nadir in its development, had about five active members in the band and was threatened with extinction, Judy was asked by members of Lithgow City Council to assume its leadership. The city fathers needed

Kinnear lost her battle with cancer despite every effort by medical staff and unswerving support from her loving family and friends to sustain her life.

“While the rain has been welcome, it’s also brought an unwelcome threat of grass fires across the Chifley / Lithgow Team area,” Superintendent Greg Sim said. “We have had above average rainfall during the past six months which is fantastic for farmers but it has also caused a significant increase in vegetation growth like crops and grass. Several grass fires have started in the area in recent weeks. “With the grass now curing or drying out, the landscape is becoming more susceptible to fire and it’s a threat we haven’t seen to this extent for some time. “Grass fires can be especially dangerous because they start quickly and spread rapidly, destroying not only homes, stocks and crops, but also lives and livelihoods.” Superintendent Sim said there are steps people can take now to prepare for the increased risk. “Farmers can help protect their properties by establishing firebreaks around paddocks, homes and other valuable assets like sheds and equipment,” Superintendent Sim said. “Firebreaks can assist in slowing a fire’s spread and also help stop a fire from entering or leaving your property. “People living in areas where there is grass growth should also have a plan for what they will do if there is a fire. “Make a bush fire survival plans with a guide available from www.myfireplan.com.au or from the Chifley / Lithgow Team Fire Control Centres. “We’re also advising motorists to avoid driving through or stopping in long grass, even if it’s just for a few minutes, as the heat from a car’s exhaust can be enough to start a fire. “It is important that everyone understands the risks of grass fires across the Bathurst, Lithgow and Oberon areas and prepares for it, whether you’re on the land, in town or just travelling through.” “It’s also important that if a fire starts, you call Triple Zero (000) as soon as possible. The earlier you report the fire, the sooner we can help minimise the damage. Taking these simple measures could help protect your home, equipment and your livelihood,” Superintendent Sim said.

Environmental Projects - a Year in Review

Another year of environmental projects enables educational programs, project partnerships, revegetation and noxious weed control around the Local Government Area (LGA)

The environment has certainly been the focus of many projects this year, with many hours of hard work contributing to the successful attempts to improve our local environment. Lithgow City Council Mayor, Stephen Lesslie says “I think these are exciting times for the Lithgow LGA with Council initiating a number of important Natural Recourse Management (NRM) Projects. The Draft Master Plan for the Farmers Creek Precinct which will guide future recreational and environmental works for the Creek will be on exhibition in the New Year and Hassan’s Walls Plan of Management is well underway. In addition, Council has a number of grant-funded projects allowing contractors to undertake on ground works in Council reserves throughout the LGA.” The Primary School Education Program was delivered to over 400 students in the LGA and the Early Learning Centre Workshops were also delivered to Childcare/Preschool staff members all being taught the concepts of recycling, composting and worm farming. The Community Organics workshops were a success, teaching the processes of composting and worm farming to local residents. The Green Army team which is currently in its

2nd year has once again contributed an enormous amount of time and energy to various environmental projects with fantastic environmental outcomes for our LGA. The team has successfully collected and propagated over 10,000 local native seeds and planted over 1200 tube stock to revegetate after weed & debris removal works. “I was very disappointed that the Green Army Program has been terminated by the Federal Government without Lithgow City Council being given a chance to comment on its success”, Cr. Lesslie said. Council’s Landcare Coordinator has also been extremely busy in her first year assisting new or existing Landcare groups with action planning or project support, as well as linking funding opportunities to groups or projects in the local area. Council hosted local tree planting days in a variety of locations throughout the year enabling the planting of over 1500 local native tube stock. These locations included; Lithgow Pony Club, Hassan’s Walls Reserve, Lake Pillans and Vale of the Clwydd Creek. Mayor Lesslie added, “These planting days wouldn’t be the success they are without the dedication of many local residents volunteering their time and man power. The efforts of those who volunteered have helped achieve real environmental outcomes to protect and enhance biodiversity in the local area.” Council is always looking for volunteers for such events; please register your interest via Council’s ‘Current Environmental Projects’ tab on our website http://council. lithgow.com/environmental-projects/

NSW IT specialists set for bumper year.

New research has revealed New South Wales IT professionals are set to be the wage winners of 2017 with some specialist positions poised for double digit wage growth this year. The findings form part of Robert Walters annual Salary Survey that reveals New South Wales senior network engineers as the envy of Australian working professionals predicted to reap the benefits of high-market demand for IT specialist roles. The growth is expected to be driven as NSW based corporates continue to explore technology advances to enable and fast track productivity and efficiency gains. Robert Walters, Sydney Director, Andrew Hanson said the demand for IT professionals at the top of their field continues a year-on-year trend which saw strong growth for other specialist roles in the financial services and infrastructure industries. “Overall, the recruitment market across Australia was more buoyant than expected in 2016, particularly in the areas of technology and infrastructure. “Technology advances to enable and fast track productivity gains, regulatory pressures within the financial services sector together with the $50 billion worth of investment committed by Australia’s national and state governments were the main drivers for the stronger than expected salary growth in 2016,” Mr Hanson said. Human resources, sales and secretarial support are the three sectors most likely to miss out thanks to oversupply. Wage winners for 2017 are expected to be IT jobs in NSW, digital marketing roles in Queensland. ‘Better bonuses’ but ‘subdued salaries’ are just some of the expectations for 2017 from Australia’s 12 million strong workforce. And for those considering moving into a different role in 2017 you are not alone. “56% of Australian professionals will be looking to move jobs this year. Of those only 28% will change jobs for a better salary. Career progression, flexible working conditions and cultural fit will be the major non-financial reasons jobseekers will be looking to move jobs in 2017,” said Mr Hanson.

Issue 143 - 13 January 2017

Property Trends in Lithgow 2016 saw an interesting market for the Greater Lithgow Area and for the rest of New South Wales. For the second half of the year we noticed listings dwindling. Whether you blame the Federal, Council or U.S.A. elections, we had it all in 2016. By Christine Dodson, R&W Lithgow A shortage of properties for sale saw an increase in prices locally, as we continued to see investor purchases, although owner/occupiers stepped up, with a larger percentage of locals making purchases. Whilst volumes were lower, the year just gone has continued to show a lot of positive signs in the real estate market in Lithgow and surrounds.

Prices

The median price for a property in Lithgow is sitting at $273,250 according to realesate.com.au. Many investors are still looking for property under the $250,000 price bracket, which is now getting rarer to find. Like with any market, a property priced competitively is being snapped up. Anything under $300,000 is drawing the most interest however current listings we have for over $500,000 are still very popular.

Average Days On Market

The current average days on market according to Smart Property Investment is less than 65. We are finding many properties are selling after the first or second inspection, many don’t even make it full our full marketing process without being sold to buyers who have missed out on other homes.

2016 2017

What buyers are looking for

PROPERTY

Summer Green Waste Collection

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the first greenwaste collection of the year scheduled for 30th January 2017

2016 saw the bulk of buyers in the marketplace looking for cheap homes to renovate quickly and either sell or lease out. The other kind of homes that were popular were to the other extreme, being more expensive and not needing any work done at all. These are being sought by owner occupiers, predominantly young families. Land is also in high demand, vacant blocks within close proximity of town are becoming harder to find, with even new estates on the fringes of town selling well.

Where buyers are coming from

Where many buyers over the last couple of years nhave been coming from out of town, we are seeing more locals showing interest in the local market. We are seeing movement in the town from down-sizers and up-sizers along with local first home buyers, however investors from Sydney, along with young families from the Western suburbs and Blue Mountains are still seeking properties here.

The rental market

We still have many tenants looking for homes. Rental prices continue to rise. The average rental price in town now is $280 per week according to Domain. Tenants range from single mums and dads to the elderly along with working professionals. Of note, many first-time teachers have been place here and are renting prior to purchasing in town. For all sales and rental information, talk to your trusted real estate agent.

Properties hottest in marketplace

The most sought after properties have been cheap homes for renovation. Anything from $200,000 $300,000 price range is being snapped up. These kind of homes are basically ‘walking out the door’, they are more often than not selling to the first buyer to see them.

In the garden in 2017

Pictured: Alstroemeria “Princess Kate”

The New Year is upon us and for me so is retirement from the Nursery, which has not been a secret. By Barbara Moran

I look forward to being more available to spend time weekends with my grandchildren and finally finishing my garden and property. My trees, grapes, shrubs and plants have been neglected due to a lack of time and they now deserve a lot of attention. I must admit that my career change from books to plants in my forties was a very enjoyable change. It has been a blast and I truly believe that the garden is good for your soul. Over the Summer break there are lots of little jobs that can be done such as spraying your roses for Black Spot. Black spot which is a fungal disease usually appears on roses at this time of year and is brought on by warm nights and moist leaves. Always water your roses around the root ball and try to avoid spraying the leaves particularly at night. I spray my roses with a Yates Rose Gun which has a systemic fungicide as well as an insecticide and miticide to control Black Spot, Aphids, budworm, thrips, mites and powdery mildew. Roses love plenty of fertilising during their growing period and by pruning off the dead flowers you will enjoy repeat blooms throughout summer. Other pest to look out for are the White Cabbage Moth and Slugs and Snails. I use Vegetable dust to control the Cabbage Moth, Aphids and Thrips. Mulching at this time of year with an organic mulch which will break down easily is beneficial to keep the roots of the plants cool. There are many options such as Sugar Cane Mulch, Eucalyptus Mulch, Redwood Chip, Pine Chip or Tea Tree Mulch. The plants are a little stressed due to the heat but a good deep watering once a week will help. Flowering beautifully at the moment are Petunias, Hollyhocks, Foxgloves, Geraniums, Dianthus, Gazanias, Lavender, Dahlias, Cosmos, Impatiens and my favourite Alstroemerias or more commonly known as Princess or Peruvian Lillies. Alstroemerias come in various colours and mostly have girls names. If you are looking for a striking red

colour in the garden then “Kate” will brighten up any garden patch. They also make a great gift if you can find the name for your special person. Alstroemerias are a tuberous rooted perennial which die down with the frost similar to any summer flowering bulb and reappear in Spring. I always have mulch protecting the tubers from the frost and have watched them multiply in my garden over the past 5 years. They come in a myriad of colours from White to Cream, Orange, Yellow, Pink, Red and Purple. They are quite compact but some of the taller varieties grow to around 40cm.

Thankyou to all of you who read the column and I wish you all a Safe and Happy New Year filled with Good Health and Happiness.

Kindergarten Cop By Kellie Evans

Pick Of The Week Kindergarten Cop, Prime7 on Saturday 14th January at 5:45pm

Arnold Schwarzenegger at his best. This 1990 classic is funny and action filled but I have to say that the kindergarten kids are the stand out hits of this film. Arnie plays Detective John Kimble, a battle hardened cop who’s new assignment is to become a Kindergarten Teacher in order to apprehend villain Cullen Crisp (Richard Tyson). One of the students in his class is the key to getting a location on Crisp. John becomes very friendly with fellow teacher Joyce Palmieri (Penelope Ann Miller) but a fantastic twist has their fates more aligned than either of them realised. Terrific family viewing!

Hydro serves majestic global dining palette Traditional dishes from exotic global locations infused with local flavours served by staff from around the world: the Hydro Majestic Hotel in the Blue Mountains represents the modern face and cuisine of Australia – as it has for more than a century. The original Blue Mountains party palace will celebrate its history of cultural diversity during the Australia Day week with a World Degustation Day feast on Friday, January 27. Escarpment Group general manager Ralf Bruegger said: ``The Hydro Majestic has always embraced cultural diversity, not because its first owner Mark Foy was politically correct but because he genuinely loved people of all races, their culture, art and food – just as we do today. ``In fact, what is seen as progressive, even outrageous today, has always been normal at the Hydro Majestic. I mean, what was normal for a man who liked to dress in his wife’s clothing and held cross-dressing parties for his friends?’’ With the means to satisfy his every whim, the welltravelled Foy had the famous hotel dome pre-fabricated in Chicago and shipped to Australia. Dr George Baur of the Shoeneck health spa in Switzerland was hired to devise and supervise a program of diets and weird and wonderful

treatments. Turkish coffee at the Hydro Majestic was served by Turkish waiters, Chinese tea by Chinese waiters. Fascinated by all things Asian, Foy employed many Chinese workers disillusioned with the lack of fortune in the Bathurst goldfields who had found themselves stranded in the Blue Mountains with no money to return to Sydney. One was Louie Goh Mong, nicknamed ``Charlie’’, who worked as a cook at Foy’s Sydney home and managing the mayhem at the Hydro Majestic for 35 years. Today, staff from 15 language groups work at the Hydro Majestic including English, French, Canadian, Russian, Chinese (all dialects), Portuguese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Italian, Indonesian, Thai and more. Mr Bruegger is German and head chef Mate Herceg has a Croatian background. ``People visit the Hydro Majestic from all over the world and we must understand and accommodate their cultural needs,’’ Mr Bruegger said. ``In an internationally renowned destination such as the Blue Mountains it is expected of us and certainly received by our guests in all other mature tourism regions of the world.’’ Guests at the World Degustation Day banquet will be treated to global gastronomy through a decadent fivecourse food safari featuring flavours from all seven continents on Earth infused with the distinctive tastes of the Greater Blue Mountains and NSW Central West. ``We’ll also have a dish that’s quintessentially Aussie, because after all that’s our shared experience and we all love being here in this fantastic country of opportunity and diversity,’’ Mr Bruegger said. The multicultural feast at the grandest of the grand hotels in the Blue Mountains will be designed and prepared by chefs from various cultural backgrounds with experience at internationally-recognised restaurants around the world including Michelin star restauranttrained sous chef Max Vloet. Guests can fully immerse themselves in the sumptuous

35 Years for the Lithgow Bears This year will be a massive year for the Lithgow Bears Rugby League Club who will be celebrating 35 years since forming in 1982.

The Club was formed in 1982 with the first team playing in 1983 in the Group 10 Second Division. The club began from afew Lithgow Football fans who were not worried about the money side of the sport but a chance to have some fun. The jerseys were all black with a red ‘V’ neck and the Bears head logo in the corner. The colours were chosen from Tobins Transport’s Fleet Colours. The colour white was officially added in 1994 as a Bathurst team also had red and black. The first jersey sponsor was the Lithgow RSL Club on the sleeve of the jersey. A year later Tobins Transport became the first major sponsor to be advertised on the chest of the jerseys. The jerseys also contained 3 quarter length sleeves. Over the years the Bears Jersey has been modified, but to this day the Bears have kept the ‘V’ red neck, black and white colours. The bears head is also located in the top corner. The Bears have been fortunate to win the cup in 1995, 2010 and 2011. The Bears have held 5 presidents over the past 35 years, including Don Milligan (founder of the Bears), Geoff Wheeler (current major sponsor; the Lithgow Workmen’s Club), Jeff Dean, Peter Hughes and current president Ben Spittles. The first captain/coach of the Bears was Owen Wilson who continues to sponsor the Bears through Jersey Sponsorship. The only player who has reached 200 games playing for the Bears is Mark Denley, who is also the Bears League Tag Coach for 2017. There has been a number of players, clubman, life

members of the club who have been very loyal and committed and who still supports the Bears in one way or another. The Bears have been a family oriented club since the beginning with many brothers, fathers and sons and now since the Bears Female League Tag team have joined the competition in 2016, there has been many sisters and partners within the club. The Lithgow Bears would also like to celebrate the 35 years with Tobin Transport who have been a valued sponsor for the whole life span of the Bears. To celebrate 35 years The Lithgow Bears will be wearing a similar jersey design to the original in 1983 (retro day) for a game with an auction of the Jerseys to be held at the Lithgow Workmen’s Club. The money made from the auction will be donated to a local charity. Everyone is invited to attend. This year the Lithgow Bears Rugby League Club will

be hosting the New Era Cup Knockout Competition on the 1st April 2017 at the Lithgow Showground. This will be host to many clubs ranging from Blackheath to Orange with Footballers and League Tag players. Throughout the Year the Bears will be raising money for the Simon Williams Memorial Charity. Many of Simon’s relatives have been past players and supporters of the Bears. The Bears will also be attending shave for a cure with one Bears player to date, Timmy Hughes shaving his head for charity. The Bears would like to thank all volunteers, supporters and sponsors throughout the past 35 years. Without your help the Bears Club could not function. Training has commenced on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6pm for anyone who is wishing to play or be involved with a fun, family oriented club, please do not hesitate to come down to training or contact the Bears.

The Art of Minimalism

Contributed by Rev Matt

In September 2012 I walked 800kms across Spain on the pilgrimage Camino De Santiago. For 3 months before I left, my backpack stood at the foot of my bed with the only things I would have with me for about a month on the journey. I was constantly reviewing the items - 1) to see if there was anything I was missing and 2) to see if there was anything that was not essential that I could leave behind. I didn’t need to carry extra deadweight. In the end it seems I judged pretty well. I met other pilgrims on the path, however, who were posting items home they decided they didn’t need. At one point on the journey someone had painted the rather hilarious image (above/below?) of this overloaded pilgrim. For a month I lived with 2 sets of clothes – a day set which I washed when I showered late in the afternoon, and a night set which I changed into. The simplicity was incredibly freeing. I found my image and what I was wearing faded largely into the background and simply wasn’t as important anymore. When I arrived home from my trip I opened my 3 drawers and wardrobe full of clothes. I would’ve been lucky to have used ¼ of them in any given year. It all seemed so much. Why did I keep all of them? And then there was all the other ‘stuff’ in my house. Our culture has a large obsession with ‘stuff’. Success, fulfilment, satisfaction and happiness are promised in the accumulation of material things. Much of the advertising world relies on this obsession and feeds it. We purchase some new technology only to find out in 6 months that we now need a newer, better version. We also hang onto things ‘just in case’. Things can stay packed up in boxes for decades never touched, but we don’t throw them out, just in case we’ll need them someday - a type of safety blanket. And then there’s the stress of protecting our ‘stuff’, insuring it in case something happens to it, worrying about it getting stolen. One of life’s ironies is that usually

those with great material wealth are less generous with what they have. The problem is not in the ‘stuff’. We need a certain amount of material possessions in life. They can be helpful and useful on life’s journey. The problem comes when material possessions become a focus and a priority. So much so, that we start to lose sight of what our real priorities are. We might say our priorities are our relationships, health and contribution to our community but does a look at our diary or the way we spend our time and money accurately reflect that? Our physical clutter can lead to an internal clutter. Dealing with the outside can help us deal with the inside – our mental, emotional and spiritual sides. Having spent some of the holiday season decluttering my office and desk changes the way I feel about my work. The great religious traditions acknowledge this connection. Jesus’ response to a rich man about how he could have the fullest, most whole life was to give away his wealth. Buddha taught that attachment to things brings suffering. Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields run the website The Minimalists. They set the challenge to pack your whole house up as if you are moving and then only unpack things as you need them. They were shocked at how much remained in the boxes over a 3 week period. The things that were unpacked had a clear and intentional use and purpose. How might life be better for you if you minimalised and simplified the clutter? If the things you had were used regularly with a clear purpose? If you had less material things? The benefits could be: less impact on our environment, getting debt under control, more time for health and relationships and bringing your priorities into clearer focus amongst others. May you find the courage and wisdom to declutter and let go as you prepare to launch into a new year. I’m off to cull a few shelves.

Mountain Bike Racing starts for 2017 It was a fantastic roll up for the first Twilight mountain bike race of 2017 on Tuesday night. Photo & Story by Craig Flynn Storms that threatened earlier in the afternoon blow over leaving the trails near Rydal in perfect racing condition. As usual Garry Dukes jumped off the start and lead all riders into the single track. Despite the 2 week break from racing the trails were offering plenty of grip. Glen Porter kept the pressure on but Dukes managed to extend his lead, finishing 4mins clear of Porter in second place with both riders going a lap up on the rest of the field with Dillan Dukes rocking into 3rd. Finishing 13th overall in her first race on the Rydal trail

Daneille Patterson took 1st in the female division just in front of Madhu Tamilarasan and Lesley Collier. In the juniors Luke Abbott stomped out the win with Cooper Giles in 2nd and Connor Byrn just pipping his sister Ashey to take 3rd. It was great to see plenty of new riders there this week as both the female and junior divisions continue to grow. All riders are welcome. We are fairly relaxed, A grade just means you do more laps and we encourage every ne to have a go, it’s about getting out there and competing against your own time and your mates. So don’t be intimidated by the “race” tag. We all just go out to do our best. Cross country mountain bike races take place every Tuesday afternoon at the Rydal show ground. Race fee is just $5 (Women and Kids get free entry) and MTBA is offering a 2 month free trial membership to cover your insurance costs so you can try without committing to a full race licence.
