Crystal Theatre, Wolgan Street, Portland Opening Friday night, the Blue Fox Bar & Kitchen is another sign that Lithgow’s renaissance is well and truly underway. The full refit of the old Ggalloping Grape venue is a huge leap forward Lithgow’s restaurant scene. “We just felt there was a gap in the market for people like us that wanted a night out to enjoy amazing food and drinks in a beautiful atmosphere,” said one of the new owners Lorraine Roebuck. The food on offer will be served as share plates and the experience of eating with friends is the entire focus of the venue. There is a commitment to local produce, with a range of wines from Mudgee and Orange as well as a range of local Craft Beers. Opening night is fully booked out but search for the Blue Fox Bar & Kitchen on Facebook to reserve your table in the coming weeks.

NEWS From the Editor A blessing in every setback. Well 2017 has gotten off to a varied start for me, and for others that I know. Every year we start out full of hope, and then things happen that chip away at our positive outlook. As you all know we got scammed by an ‘advertiser’ earlier this year from overseas, I know people that have had to contend with flooded workplaces, and this week, a quick jaunt up to Mackay for business turned in to an epic trip when we got stranded for half a day at the airport because of storms. You know the old saying, everything happens for a reason… however, sometimes it is hard to work out what that reason is, and we tend to look back and wonder what if things had gone differently? We all do our best not to do this, but it seems like it is a human behaviour we can’t control. There is no greater example of this at the moment than in all the media and social media discussion about what ‘could’ have happened if the Council could have had a count back rather than go to a by-election, what could have happened if we didn’t draw the mayor out of the barrel - which by the way is perfectly legal and due process. The facts remain, these things have happened. They are in the past. We cannot do anything to change them and wondering ‘what if’ is not doing anything other than undermining our ability to focus on what we can control - which is - what is before us. There will be a by-election, and it clearly happened for a reason. We will be giving some people the opportunity to follow their own goals and step up to do the right thing for their community, and we will get to have our say through the democratic process. This is possibly the most important vote we have had in recent history for this local area. Who we choose will determine how the Council will operate. Hopefully they will be a group that can find common ground, debate issues vigorously with respect, and come to decisions that will be in our best interest. In a perfect world I would not have spent 6 hours sitting in Mackay airport in a storm, but, I did have 6 hours of forced downtime and a chance to talk to Kel uninterrupted. Silver linings. Let’s stop looking back, because no matter what happened, it always happens for a reason. Enjoy your week, Rich Evans.

Mayor unchained: Challenging times ahead

publicly bicker - the mayor is facing a reckoning. Lithgow’s coming by-election will see councillor numbers up to scratch. But will it be a more, or less, fractious council makeup? That’s the challenge facing Mayor Lesslie. Does he have the capacity to persuade all councillors (himself included) to finally set aside their petty differences, and to work together as a truly collaborative unit? The mayor recently apologised for his part in the unseemly slanging match at the last council meeting. Hopefully, this public show of contriteness is a sign that things are going to improve. We’ll just have to wait and see. When Mayor Stephen Lesslie eventually leaves office, he’ll no doubt resurrect another bygone custom: having his name engraved on the mayoral chain for posterity. The last Lithgow mayor inscribed on the chain is dated ‘1976’: Alderman H.G. Coates. A builder by trade, Harold George Coates MP OBE (1917-2002), devoted almost forty years to Lithgow City Council, serving as Mayor on three seperate occasions: 1947, 1954-1957 and 1976. He was also a member of the NSW State Legislative Assembly, from 1965 to1976. Lithgow’s current Mayor, Cr Stephen Lesslie, has a hard act to follow.

From The Magpie Whisperer

Mayoral robes and chains have been an intrinsic part of council formalities for centuries. But in this fast-paced, live-in-themoment world, traditions are often discarded. Today many councils are doing away with outmoded customs, in favour of a totally modern approach. However, Mayor Cr Stephen Lesslie clearly believes in maintaining timeworn traditions, especially the ritual ‘bling’. Following his 2016 election, Mayor Lesslie promptly reinstated procedural formality at council meetings. He also rummaged through the storeroom and recovered the mayoral chain and robe, which had been unused and gathering dust for over 40 years. Today you rarely see the mayor officially out and about without his mayoral chain. Lithgow Council’s reputation was at a low ebb when Cr Stephen Lesslie’s name was drawn from the mayoral ‘lottery’ barrel, last September. Yet, he gave his first considerations as mayor to reinstating old protocols and the accoutrements of ritual. This ran counter to a reason he gave for returning to local government, stating he was “..concerned about Lithgow being left behind.” Given his rhetoric, the mayor’s penchant for outdated ritual is somewhat contradictory - and far from progressive. The mandate of the mayor and councillors is one of effective delivery. Instead, they have routinely hidden behind arguments about balancing priorities and lack of resources. But while the council searches for a new general manager, waits for two departing councillors to be replaced, struggles to stave off fiscal disaster, and councillors

ENERGISING ENTERPRISE IN REGIONAL NSW The Federal Electorate of Calare and State Electorate of Bathurst have secured much needed funding under the latest round of the Energise Enterprise program.

Federal Member Andrew Gee and State member Paul Toole said this vital support will help community organisations invest in new opportunities and stimulate jobs growth. “This federally funded program delivered in partnership with New South Wales is assisting communities impacted by water buybacks and helping to diversify their economies and transition to other non-irrigated industries,” Mr Gee said. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole added, “I want to congratulate the successful applicants, I know first-hand how hard our local businesses and community groups have worked to secure their respective funding.” Local projects funded in the Federal and State under the Energise Enterprise Fund are: • Business Incubator: Entrepreneur Training Component with funding of $24,800 to Bathurst Regional Council • Blayney 90 Day Business Capability & Skills Development Acceleration Program $25,000 • The Portland, Lidsdale & Charbon 90 Day Business Capability & Skills Development Acceleration Program $25,000 • Bathurst 90 Day Business Capability & Skills Development Acceleration Program $25,000 • Building Community Resilience - improving small farm sustainability through sustainable farming, diversity and local supply networks $23,600. Funding was provided to the Business Enterprise

Centre Cabonne Orange Blayney to deliver these programs and • Building the digital economy in Bathurst and Forbes $19,317 to Geomancia Pty Ltd in association with Local Government and an Aboriginal not-forprofit organisation “These projects will bring significant economic benefits to the region, which will help ensure we have a thriving local economy for years to come,” Mr Toole said. Federal Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said that the Coalition Government was committed to basin communities doing it tough as a result of the Murray Darling Basin Plan and the Murray-Darling Basin Regional Economic Diversification Program, as well as the cap on water buybacks, represents this strong commitment. “As a Minister who is based in the Basin, I understand just how vital it is to protect both the economic and social interests of Basin communities,” Ms Nash said. “The Coalition is committed to investing in projects like this that will diversify and strengthen the local economy.” New South Wales Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional Development, Skills and Small Business, John Barilaro, said the Energise Enterprise fund has been designed specifically to help regional communities create local jobs and to find new ways of investing and doing business. “This funding provides support which will ensure the future of local regional communities, where our spouses have a place to work, our children can attend a good school and where the local grocer will still greet us with a smile when we do our weekly shop,” said Mr Barilaro. “Many projects already funded from previous rounds of the Murray Darling Basin Regional Economic Diversification Program are delivering great results for local communities, and I congratulate the recipients on the hard work they continue to put in to secure this funding.”

Temporary Closure of Lithgow Skate Park The Lithgow Skate Park will be temporarily closed for the installation of the new shade structures. Lithgow Council has advised that Lithgow Skate Park will be closed from 7.00am on Monday, 20th February 2017 until 5.00pm on Friday, 24th February 2017 to allow the new shade structures to be installed. Lithgow Mayor Stephen Lesslie said today “The final stage of works on the new shade structures covering the active section of the Lithgow Skate Park will be completed, meaning that the Park will be unavailable for use by the community during the five (5) day construction period”. The posts and canter lever roofing will be added to the footings installed recently, and closing the area allows the work to be completed without any danger to patrons. “The completion of this project will provide users with protection from the sun, and Council is delighted to be able to work together to promote healthy, active lifestyles in our community” concluded Mayor Lesslie.

PROJECT FUNDING TO COMBAT LOCAL CRIME Communities across the Bathurst Electorate are encouraged to come forward with solutions to stamp down on local crime and anti-social behaviour. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole urged community groups, council, businesses and organisations to apply for grants up to $250,000 for ideas to boost local safety and pride. “The Community Safety Fund will invest in projects that address local crime hot spots and promote safe and inclusive use of public space,” Mr Toole said. “I know many people in our community have innovative ideas of how to make our community a safer place and I encourage them to take up this funding opportunity. “The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is committed to reducing crime and making our state a safer place to live.” Minister for Justice and Police Troy Grant said crime is a social and financial burden that the NSW Government is committed to reducing. “We know there is always more that can be done to stamp out crime in our towns and suburbs and are working with the community to identify opportunities,” Mr Grant said. “The reasons and consequences of crime in one region of NSW can be very different to other regions therefore it is important to invest in local solutions.” The Community Safety Fund aims to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour through infrastructure and service delivery projects that address local crime hot spots, anti-social behaviour and promotes safe and inclusive use of public space and collaborative approaches to crime prevention and detection. Applications close 5pm on Monday 20 February 2017. Further information including application information: http://www.crimeprevention.nsw.gov.au/

From Lithgow High School This morning we celebrated our many 2016 HSC high achievers. It was fabulous to welcome back the large group of students who achieved Band 5 and 6 results in their HSC, and find out where they are heading and their future aspirations. Jarrad Pringle received the top ATAR score of 97.1 and has accepted his position at UNSW to study Medicine. Jarrad spoke about how he achieved his top score thanks to a healthy dose of focus, hard work and determination. He also spoke about always having his goal and working hard to achieve it. He thanked his teachers for pushing him that extra mile, making him prepare for the HSC exams. Joshua Kitchner received an ATAR of 96.3 and has already moved to University. We know he is excited to There are a huge number of individuals , to many to name, who provide sponsorship and volunteer their help both in the lead up to and on the day of the show. Without them we could not continue, so I would like to thank them also. This year I would like to add a special thankyou to some of our younger generation who were a huge help over the weekend. Many of these kids will hopefully be the ones who carry on the running of our show in years to come and from what I saw over the weekend the Rydal A, H & P Society will be in good hands. The Rydal Show is a true community event and in these difficult times for our rural communities, is an important social event which provides a respite from the worries of life on the land . I would like to thank the Rydal & District community for helping and supporting the Rydal Show. Yours Sincerely Mrs Rachael Young, Secretary, Rydal A, H & P Society. CAN WE GIVE OUR MAYOR A BREAK Many people are on his back and there is a lot of backbiting but look at just what has been going on in the few months he has been in the job. 1. Hysteria that he won the mayoral election. Any Councillor is entitled to stand for the Mayor’s job. It is not his fault that one of the Councillors did not vote. 2. A month into the job and the Council votes to dismiss the General Manager. This vote was supported by the former Mayor and all the Forum Councillors. 3. Next when he made public comments about the decision to sack the General Manager being “an excessive over reaction” and that it would cost the ratepayers an enormous amount of money - it was

begin his new chapter at UNSW where he will study Engineering. Congratulations to all of our Year 12 students on their fine achievements in the 2016 HSC. We were excited to learn as well as the students with ATARS above 90, 16 students achieved scores of 80 and above and are proud to say of a cohort of 107 students over 45 University offers were made. Students will begin their study in a variety of degrees including: Medicine, Engineering, Business, Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Language, Business and Communications, Teaching, Policing, Cyber Security and Behaviour, Civil Engineering, Oral Health, Criminal Justice, International Studies, Media Communications, Software & Science, Nursing, Psychology, Music and Arts. and it will - he was then hit with a motion of no confidence by Cr Ring. 4. His attempt to have a function for community volunteers was rejected. To his credit he held it anyway. Paying for it himself. 5. Hit with a totally unnecessary by-election. The case against Cr Ticehurst should have been finalised well before the council election or failing that the Minister for Local Government should have enacted his own legislation and allowed the votes of the previous election to be re-counted to determine the next candidate. More money wasted. 6. A Forum Councillor resigns. This can hardly be blamed on Cr Lesslie. 7. Some sort of gamesmanship by the Minister for Local Government in refusing to grant consent for the date of the by-election. Cr Lesslie has rightly made it very clear that no appointment of a new General Manager can be made until there are nine Councillors. 8. At almost every meeting the Council is hit with a notice from either the Minister for Local Government or his/her department demanding action on Council’s financial position. These demands are costing the council hundreds of thousands of dollars and all relate to actions not taken by the previous Forum controlled council.

I believe that there is quite a lot of skulduggery going on behind the scenes which is aimed at undermining our new Mayor. Mayors are not Council employees and I know that Cr Lesslie has had to be there practically full time since the General Manager was dismissed. So as I said at the top of this letter - GIVE HIM A BREAK Yours sincerely, Ariel Elliott, Lithgow Send your letters to editor@villagevoice.net.au or PO Box 227, Portlnd NSW 2847

Your Country Your Voice

Federal Member for Calare

$60,000 FOR MARJORIE JACKSON OVAL During the last federal election, the Coalition pledged $60,000 for the upgrade of Marjorie Jackson Oval. The announcement was warmly received by the Lithgow community and also the Lithgow District Football Association. I was surprised to recently learn that Lithgow City Council hadn’t filled in the paperwork and sent it back to the Federal Government to get the money. They were asked back in September last year to do it. I recently approached Councillor Maree Statham and asked her to raise the matter with the Council, which she has done. I’m very grateful for her assistance and efforts. However, at the time of writing, the paperwork is still outstanding! It’s not often that you have so much trouble trying to hand out money to a council! What’s going on? I would urge the Council to get the paperwork in as soon as possible.

NBN UPDATE Last year I wrote to the head of NBN Co Bill Morrow and asked him to bring forward the roll out of the NBN in Lithgow. Work is scheduled to start in the second half of this year. Unfortunately Mr Morrow has not replied to my correspondence. It’s been reported that in 2015-16 Mr Morrow took home $3.6 million. You would think a guy in that position could reply to my letter! It’s pretty poor form. I intend to keep pressing him for a response. On a brighter note, it seems that not going first with the NBN may actually deliver major dividends to Lithgow. The technology has moved ahead quickly since the NBN rollout started in other parts of the region. The new “fibre to the kerb” technology will deliver massively faster broadband to Lithgow, which I believe will be a huge marketing opportunity to attract new businesses to start-up or relocate here. Lithgow is the gateway to the Central West. Its proximity to Sydney gives it a natural competitive advantage that can really be capitalised on with this new technology. Lithgow’s NBN network will be the envy of the region.

95TH RYDAL SHOW Country shows are the lifeblood of our regional communities, providing an opportunity to showcase produce, arts and crafts, and agricultural exhibits. The Rydal community put on a wonderful display recently for its 95th annual show.

LITHGOW HALLOWEEN TO CONTINUE

A huge effort from the Show Society and all involved – congratulations!

It was terrific to hear that Lithgow City Council is to retain its support for Halloween. I attended the Halloween celebrations last year and I was astounded at the number of people who had travelled from Sydney and other parts of the Central West to attend. It’s a unique tourist event that gets national media coverage for Lithgow. Long may it continue!

OPAL ARRIVES IN BATHURST Travelling between Bathurst and Sydney is now easier for customers with the roll out of Opal technology at the Bathurst Railway Station.

From today, Bathurst rail customers can take advantage of an Opal Top Up Machine, allowing them to top up their Opal card or purchase an Opal Single Trip ticket. Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said it’s a part of the NSW Government’s commitment to improve customer options at major locations outside of the Sydney metropolitan area. “Rail patronage figures show that on average, more than 14,000 people per year make the trip from Bathurst to Sydney. “We also know that each month, around 1,500 Central West rail customers commute to Bathurst as

their entry point to the Sydney Metropolitan system, so it makes sense to link them to this technology at this important transport hub,” said Mr Toole. Opal provides ticketing services across the greater Sydney rail network, ferries, light rail and more than five thousand buses in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter, Illawarra, and Southern Highlands. “Opal is easy to use and extremely convenient for customers. There are a number of incentives based on frequency and time of travel,” Mr Toole said. “Opal also makes negotiating the metropolitan system easier, with integration across all public transport modes and paper ticketing systems no longer in use. “The new machine at Bathurst will link people into all of these great benefits when using the Opal network.” Customers can also use the Opal Travel App or opal.com.au to top up their Opal Cards. For the latest information on Opal visit opal.com.au.

2017 Rydal Show a great success.

Despite the very hot weather a large crowd attended this year’s Rydal Show.

There was plenty to do and see including yard dog trials, show dogs, goats, sheep , wool and lots of horses. There was a display of WW2 military vehicles as well as a large number of stalls selling all manner of things. There was a few rides for the kids and Neville from Blue Mountains Reptile Awareness drew a large crowd around his snake

display. The judges commented on the high standard of pavilion entries and the dining room and kiosk did a roaring trade. The Lithgow City Band and the students from the Prudence Schwarz Dance Academy entertained and the lamb auction was as popular as previous years with the highest priced lamb going for $260. Local girl, Alana Black was named as the 2017 Rydal Showgirl with another local, Grace Hadley named as our Junior Ambassador . Dean Taylor finished off a successful day with some country music.

What happened to the Tidy Town? Submitted by a concerned reader. “Hi we recently cleaned up rubbish in front of Coles service centre South Bowenfels. We drive past everyday and could look at it no longer. Since then we have cleaned it twice in a period of 6 weeks... it is locals and visitors not using bins and bins are full to overflowing,” Given Lithgow is promoting itself as a tourist destination, this is not a good look on the major entry to town. Pleas do your bit and use bins provided, and if it’s overflowing, don’t just leave your rubbish lying around, take it home and dispose of it responsibly.

The human elements of real estate

When it comes to transacting real estate, it is natural to formulate our property goals based on numbers. By Charles Tarbey, Chairman and Owner of Century 21 Australasia With the ever-present influence of price guides, auction clearance rates and headline growth figures upon our decisions, it can be easy to overlook the human aspects of real estate. Here are some considerations about the importance of relationships and communication when transacting property this year. Online versus offline strategies As consumers, we have become accustomed to a wide range of choice when looking to purchase goods or engage with a service. Of late, this is increasingly true of the real estate industry as a variety of different digital and disruptive platforms for real estate sales are entering the Australian market. Vendors are advised to carefully investigate these offerings and evaluate which best suits their objectives. Whilst it may boil down to a personal choice about how much involvement you want from an outside party in selling your property, I encourage Australians not to overlook the benefits of embracing real life relationships and communication. Simple actions like chatting to people in your local market who have recently sold and seeking their advice, picking up the phone and speaking to a local agent

about your options, or capitalising on their database of established relationships to ensure your property attracts maximum exposure, may all make the difference between a good price and a great price for your sale. Embrace auction competition In heated markets where supply levels may be lower and interest strong, it may be worthwhile selling your property in an auction to capitalise on this interest from prospective purchasers and stimulate a greater sense of urgency for the sale. Recently, I saw two great properties with water views located on the same street had both sold within a short period of time. One was sold at auction, and the other via private treaty, yet the property that sold at auction achieved a considerable amount more. Disclosing the price may create a ceiling in some situations, with buyers less inclined to want to pay more. However, auctions can create a competitive bidding environment in which buyers do not want to miss out and may result in a price beyond expectations. This can often be put down to human vs human bidding and powerful communication from the auctioneer. In saying this, it will still remain important to weigh up the chosen method of sale in light of local market dynamics as we see diverse conditions across Australia.

ALL YOUR GARDENING AND LANDSCAPING NEEDS!

Charles Tarbey is the Chairman and Owner of CENTURY 21 Australasia. He is regarded as one of the leading property experts in Australia with a huge amount of experience and knowledge from a lifetime of real estate involvement.

PROPERTY Reminder Bulky Waste Cleanup There is still time to take advantage of Lithgow Council’s free bulky waste collection Council provides a free bulky waste collection service twice a year with the first of the year scheduled for the 6th March 2017. “This year we are also seeking expressions of interest from people who are interested in getting rid of disused vehicles from their front yard.

Industry ranking reveals Lithgow business amongst Australia’s best

Photo: Lynette DeLosa, Jamie Giokaris, Rozanne Hopkins

A Lithgow business has been recognised as one of Australia’s leading real estate sales offices in a national list of topperforming agencies.

LJ Hooker Lithgow secured a position in the 2016 Real Estate Business (REB) Top 50 Sales Offices benchmark report, which ranked real estate sales offices across all brands, franchises and independents across Australia. It was ranked according to a range of 2015-2016 financial year business metrics, including sales volumes, staff numbers,efficiencies and conversion ratios. Figures were verified by a senior member of each agency network. “The REB Top 50 Sales Offices ranking provides insight into what the top-performing offices do to stay ahead of their competition,” said Tim Neary, editor of REB. “The goal of this benchmark ranking is to look beyond just sales figures and provide a clearer insight into how these successful businesses operate.” After a stellar performance over the 2016, LJ Hooker Lithgow secured their place as a leading agency on Australia’s prestigious Top 50 Sales Offices’ ranking with only 8 of the Top 50 offices named coming from a regional area. Having appeared on the list last ranked 29 last year, the top performing office secured 42nd position in last week’s announcement. LJ Hooker Lithgow principal, Jamie Giokaris praised his team and said the ranking proved that the agency was always striving to put great results for their clients at the forefront of everything they do. “Without skilled, highly professional and committed staff, this award would not be possible. I’d like to thank the team at LJ Hooker Lithgow for all of their hard work.” LJ Hooker Lithgow was one of eight LJ Hooker offices featured on the list, which adds up to just over 15 per cent of total offices ranked. LJ Hooker’s CEO Grant Harrod praised Jamie and the entire LJ Hooker Lithgow team, claiming the title was recognition of the office’s attitude towards superior customer service.

“Being named in the Top 50 best real estate offices in the country is a colossal achievement for the office and is a testament to their commitment to their local community,” Mr Harrod said. “LJ Hooker is the most recognised brand in real estate; however, it is the professionalism and dedication displayed by offices like Lithgow that makes LJ Hooker the most trusted.”

Breaking the results down by state, NSW came out on top for a fifth year with 17 offices. Victoria secured double digits for a fourth year with 16 offices, while the other states to make the list were Queensland (11), South Australia (3), Western Australia (2) and the Australian Capital Territory with one office. The Northern Territory and Tasmania were not represented in this year’s list.

Hartley Store’s Market Day brings you the best of local, fresh, organic and free-range produce and products on the first and third Sunday of each month.

I know Rowen as a fun-filled, shy, low-key, unassuming man and a wonderful choir leader, so for anyone in the area who likes to sing and wishes to join a great choir, please take note. Rowen is Musical Director of the Phoenix Choir; the Blue Mountains largest SATB choir, who regularly perform in Lithgow. Rowen is also an accomplished conductor and composer. To his credit he has written a full-length opera, Chang’E and the Moon, which premiered at the Sydney Conservatorium Music Workshop and was then performed last April at the Wentworth Falls School of Arts. Rowen has composed and performed instrumental works, songs and song cycles, choral and stage works, plus incidental music. The list goes on. So, to find out more, go to internet site www.rowenfox.com and see YouTube excerpts from some of his work, absolutely beautiful! Rowen’s forte is composition/arranging and he has an amazing way of passing on his knowledge in a fun allinclusive environment. Our repertoire is eclectic coming mainly from folk, medieval, African and pop including his own arrangements. The Lithgow Community Choir meets Wednesday evenings, 7.30 - 9pm at LINC, Cnr of Railway Parade and Padley street (entry via Padley Street). $10 or $8 conc. (this covers fees, sheet music, refreshments and hall hire).

Local biz priority

We’re just like you

We call it our Fair Go Policy. Giving groups that work hard to raise money a fair go at promoting themselves, their events and their programs.

We know small business is tough, and advertising can sometimes be expensive.

We do our best to not promote out of town businesses. However, the commercial reality means we need advertisers.

We are a local small business just like you. We live in the Central West, we are raising a family and we are committed to the region.

We would rather advertise a local business wherever possible, to ensure we deliver on our promise of helping the local economy.

We are working hard in this region to drive the region’s economic future: not focussing on our shareholders’ returns.

Fancy a pizza? Print one! By The Magpie Whisperer A Spanish Florida-based company has now secured development funding to produce and market a 3D printer for food: "The first 3D food printer kitchen appliance - creating fresh savoury and sweet dishes Foodini is changing the way the world prepares food." No more having to leave carrots out of the chicken dumplings because you haven't got any, or going without because you're too tired to cook. 'Foodini' may be an uninspiring name, until you look at what it can do. First you place fresh ingredients into the empty food capsules provided, then choose what you want done. Hit the 'start' button and Foodini does the rest. So far, it can make pizza, ravioli, burgers, quiches, chocolates and cookies. And they're putting a 3D scanner on it. Scan an object - like a cookie - save the resulting digital image, then print it. The cookies will look identical. Or, you can scan an object and print on top of it. No, it's not a practical joke. 3D-printed food is something that's already happening. The American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has provided funds to rival food replication company "..to design a 3D printer capable of producing a pizza from 30-year shelf stable foodstuffs." It seems Domino's doesn't deliver to the International Space Station. A 3D printer is just what it sounds; it 'prints' - or replicates - things in three dimensions. You have a machine, guided by a computer program, that can accurately produce objects to desired specifications. You take an object, scan it, and the scanner creates a program that tells the printer how to make one exactly like it - in plastic: jewellery, toys, tools, iPhone cases, chess pieces, clothing, you name it. Even guns have been 3D printed - and they work. What Foodini does is very similar, but it uses real food rather than plastic to produce the goods. Of course, some people will be horrified at the thought of making a meal this way. Just as some people were resistant to microwave ovens and food processors way back when. Even so, I probably won't get one. The Foodini, or whatever version of the device wins out, will just be another tool for the cook to use. It will become as ubiquitous as the microwave oven in the kitchen. Kids need a cheese and vegemite sandwich? Or you have cupcakes to make for a school fundraiser? Print them. Making a family birthday dinner for ten people? Well, it may help with the side dishes. But Barbeque Pork Spare Ribs and Chicken Kiev? They're taking a while longer to perfect.

Issue 148 - 17 February 2017

New Era Midwest Cup gets ready for kick off All New Era Midwest Cup teams are now in full training for the 2017 season and, with the demise of the Lithgow Giants club, the format of the premiership returns to an eightclub competition. Photo and story by John Fitzgerald Trial games have been mutually arranged before the first official hit-out, the annual knockout gala day set down for April 1 at Tony Luchetti Sportsground, the event to be hosted by Lithgow Bears. At the 2016 knockout at Kandos the finalists Villages United and Blackheath previewed the premiership grand final in August, and this year’s knockout final could give an early indication of the new season’s frontrunners. The regular competition commences on April 22, and this year’s premiership is wide open with the loss of influential players from both of 2016’s grand finalists. Premiers Villages United have lost most of their grand final forward pack, and two of Blackheath’s representative players, Matt Ranse and Ryan Jervis have transferred to St Pats and Workies respectively. Kandos has a more formidable side with the acquisition of a number of seasoned players and the return of experienced premiership winners Steve and John Madden, and CSU with just one team will have extra players vying for positions to boost their always-competitive team. CSU have pre-season trial games against CSU Albury Mud Dogs and Burrangong Bears, while Kandos have a trial at Kandos against Portland Colts on March 4. The New Era Cup 2016 merit leaguetag team will compete in the Canowindra knockout in March. On Friday evening, February 17, Lithgow Bears have booked two tables for the Fletch and Hindy Show at Lithgow Workmen’s Club, and the two former NRL players Bryan Fletcher and Nathan Hindmarsh will be conducting auctions, one of which is a framed Bulldogs poster, on behalf of the Bears. Blackheath’s Jed Jervis has been selected as the New Era Midwest Cup men’s representative team coach.

Mountain Bike Update Another great afternoon of mountain bike racing took place at Rydal on Tuesday. By Craig Flynn Near perfect conditions greeted riders with cooler temperatures and the trail offering plenty of grip despite the leaf litter drops by Sundays winds. Michael Kable was a stand out winner and the only rider to make the cut off time for a 4th lap. Glen Partridge had a good battle before Partridge opened up a gap in the 3rd lap to take second with Flynn in 3rd. Madhu Tamilarasan had a strong ride to take out the women in front of Lesley Collier and Robin Partridge Almost 20 juniors took to the course with Bella MacCullagh taking the win in the girls over Lilley Kable and Adalaide Larsen, while Luke Abbott was fastest boy with Lawrence Larsen and Cooper Giles rounding out the podium. Cross country mountain bike races take place every Tuesday afternoon at the Rydal show ground.
