Email: bathurst@parliament.nsw.gov.au Farmers must be thankful that finally people are hearing what they are saying - this drought is hitting them hard.

This week there has been a flood of announcements from the private sector about support programs, from communities and yes, also from the state and federal governments.

However it is the grass roots campaigns that really capture the heart and make you proud to be an Aussie. Take for example, young Tayah Bourke of Portland. Tay was watching the news when she heard Malcom Turnbull talking about what it would do for the farmers when she turned to her Pop, Ian Bourke, Owner of Foodworks in Portland and said “Pop, why aren’t they doing anything to really help, maybe we should do something,”. The result was an immediate solution in the Foodworks store of leaving trolleys out for customers to donate goods, which filled 3 trolleys in just a few days, and continues to

grow. “We have been in touch with the local branch of NSW farmers and they will be holding a meeting next week where we will be able to give hampers to people who really need it,” said Mr Bourke. Tayah will also be running a BBQ at Foodworks on Saturday 11 August where all proceeds will go to the Buy A Bale campaign. All over the region there is evidence that the Aussie spirit of helping our mates is in full swing, with communities everywhere doing their bit to support this cause.

PORTLAND BUSINESS ASSOCIATION READY FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

GRANTS OPEN FOR VOLUNTEER ORGANISATIONS IN CALARE

that would boost the local economy and promote the town of Portland. The highlight of their calendar in the inaugural year was the very successful Christmas festival that saw event throughout the town in the weeks leading up to Christmas in eluding the lighting of the tree in Mick Moore park, the carols by candlelight and street trading by local businesses. The association received funding from Energy Australia earlier this year to support this year’s Christmas Festival, and they hope to make it bigger and better than last year.

The Portland Business Association held their Annual General Meeting on Monday night and elected their committee to represent the local business community for the next 12 months.

The organisation was started just before Christmas last year to help local businesses work together on initiatives

Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee has called on community organisations in Calare to apply for a share of up to $20 million in funding to support the efforts of their volunteers. “Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 will help community organisations in Calare buy equipment such as laptops, pay fuel costs, train volunteers and improve their fundraising,” Mr Gee said. “Volunteers are the lifeblood of our country communities and by continuing to help each other and work together, we are building a stronger and safer electorate. “Around 22 organisations in Calare were among the 2,690 groups nationally who benefited from the Volunteer Grants in 2016, including the Cudal & District Men’s Shed, the Wellington CWA, the Portland Men’s Shed, and the Mudgee P&C Association. “I encourage all not-for-profit organisations in Calare to apply for the Volunteer Grants to help make the work of our volunteers easier, safer and more enjoyable.” For more information or to apply, visit the Australian Government’s GrantConnect website at www.grants. gov.au. Applications close Tuesday 18 September 2018.

INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE – COUNCIL ASSET MANAGEMENT SURVEY

LJ HOOKER REG COWDEN MEMORIAL SPORTS STAR OF THE YEAR - MONTHLY AWARD NOMINATIONS

Members of the community are being invited to participate in an important Asset Management Study which will help Council to understand how we should prioritise expenditure on our different asset types.

Nominations for outstanding sporting achievements in August 2018 will be accepted by Lithgow City Council until 12th September 2018. Nomination forms can be obtained by contacting Council’s Customer Service Department on (02) 6354 9999, or can be downloaded from council’s website http://council.lithgow.com/sports-star-awards/

Council provides a range of community assets including roads, bridges, parks, playgrounds and buildings. We want to understand your thoughts on how we should continue to look after these assets now and into the future. Community members are asked to download and read the Investing in Our Future – Asset Management Survey booklet on Council’s asset classes and then answer a number of questions in the survey which will help us understand: Whether you are happy with the current quality of these assets What state you think these assets should be in

RAINWATER TANK & DOMESTIC APPLIANCES REBATE APPLICATIONS Lithgow City Council wishes to remind residents that rebates are offered for domestic appliances and rainwater tanks. Rebates are available for rainwaters tanks with a 2,000 litre or higher capacity as well as for dishwashers and washing machines with WELS Star Ratings of 4+. Full details of the rebate offer and application forms are available from Council’s Customer Service Office or at http://council.lithgow.com/

What you believe are the asset funding priorities for future. Council will be applying to IPART for a Special Rate Variation (SRV) of 9% in 2019/20. This will extend the current SRV of 4.77% (which ends in 2018/19) with an increase of 4.23%. A new Special Rate Variation would improve Council’s financial sustainability, fund infrastructure renewals and fund asset maintenance. The proposed SRV will enable Council to meet all of the Fit for the Future measures during the 10 year term of the Long Term Financial Plan. The only alternative to a Special Rate Variation is to make further cuts to services to deliver a balanced budget, consistent with ‘Fit for the Future’ requirements. If you would like to be involved and have your say, download and read the Investing in our Future – Asset Management Survey booklet and then complete the Survey online at www.haveyoursay.lithgow.com The Survey closes on Friday 10 August.

Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee is encouraging local sporting groups to apply for funding through a national $29.7 million program aimed at upgrading community sport infrastructure. The Community Sport Infrastructure grant program has been launched by the Federal Government, enabling sport and community organisations to apply for grants up to $500,000 to upgrade sporting infrastructure in 2018-19. Mr Gee urged local sporting groups to consider projects that would help build participation in physical activity, community partnerships and inclusiveness. “Sporting facilities are vital for inspiring physical activity and health, but also for building community spirit and pride,” Mr Gee said. “I encourage sport and community groups to collaborate and think about projects that could enhance our facilities in the Calare electorate. Even the smallest of facility projects can have a big impact on boosting local business, economy, health and social cohesiveness. “Improving lighting, playing surfaces and accessibility for different ages and genders are just some of the ways sporting facilities can be made safer and more appealing.” The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity. Applications will remain open until September 14 and more information on the Community Sport Infrastructure grant program can be found at www.sportaus.gov.au/csi

Sydney recently posted the largest annual fall in house prices since the GFC and in July, Melbourne led the country in terms of declining values - recording a near one per cent decline.Negative media headlines are likely concerning the public and leading to a type of self-fulfilling prophecy when it comes to negative housing sentiment. The reverse can also be true, with positive headlines during boom times often creating a ‘fear of missing out’ buying environment. Common questions I hear at the moment are: “Is this the start of crash?” “Should I rush to sell now?” “How far will the market fall?”. While it can be dangerous to try to predict the future, I thought it might be helpful to take a step back and look at the market in context. Firstly, while the market posted a 1.6 per cent decline in capital city values over the past twelve months, CoreLogic reports that values are still an incredible 31 per cent higher than they were five years ago. So while the market has lost some momentum of late, in this context, recent falls may not be as dramatic for the market as many are saying. The second interesting point worth noting about the market is that while Australia’s largest property markets of Sydney and Melbourne have been pulling the market down lately, many other regions are performing well or very well. On an annual basis, Brisbane (+1.2%), Adelaide (+0.7%)

and Canberra (+2.4%) have all recorded price increases in their respective markets. Some are arguing that the Perth property market may have hit the bottom and green shoots are starting to appear. Hobart has recorded an incredible 11.4 per cent increase in prices over the previous year and led the nation in terms of growth over the recent quarter. While many are right to be concerned about the slowdown in the larger markets, there remains ‘markets within markets’ in Australia and to say that the entire market is experiencing dramatic price declines is inaccurate. Lastly, we are in a traditional slow winter real estate season. Auction clearance rates are falling in many markets and a lot buyers and sellers have chosen to sit on the sidelines until spring. While I do not expect that spring will deliver incredible growth statistics like it has in previous years, it still may provide us with a better understanding of how the market is truly travelling. I often say that real estate is a great place to be if you don’t have to sell and this may be especially true in this market. Long term investors often reap incredible rewards by riding out different market cycles and consistently building their portfolios with high quality assets. Due to the ongoing health of the Australian economy and the low interest rate environment, I don’t believe that the current slowdown in the market is a precursor to a property market crash. In fact, a slight downturn in prices, or more moderate growth levels, could be a good thing for the market over the medium to long term. My preference has always been for the market to achieve modest price growth. In my experience, this type of scenario often creates more sustainable markets which can benefit all property owners.

RAMPING UP DROUGHT RELIEF I’m pleased that the Federal Government has announced new drought support measures. In the Australian Parliament I’ve been calling for drought relief to be ramped up and I’m glad that the call has been answered. I’m pleased that the Federal Government has announced new drought support measures. In the Australian Parliament I’ve been calling for drought relief to be ramped up and I’m glad that the call has been answered. The additional measures include cash payments totalling $12,000 as part of the Farm Household Allowance (FHA) scheme. This takes the total cash payments available to farmers under the scheme to $28,000. Additionally, thousands more farming families will be able to access the FHA with the net asset threshold cap increased from $2.6 million to $5 million. There’s an extra $5 million for the Rural Financial Counselling Service, which will provide additional support for farmers – particularly those applying for the FHA for the first time, and $11.4 million in mental health support initiatives. Farmers wanting to access the FHA are urged not to self-assess and to contact the Farmer Assistance Line on 13 23 16. If you require guidance and support the Rural Financial Counselling Service can also be contacted on 1800 686 175. We’re in this for the long haul and we will stand with our farmers every step of the way. I was out visiting drought affected farmers across our region last week and I’ve taken a range of further measures and suggestions back to the government in Canberra, because we’re going to need more support as the weather heats up and the outlook on the land continues to worsen. You’ve got to remember that when the Australian economy was in a recent slowdown, it was our farmers and agriculture industry which got us through. Our farmers have supported us when we

needed them, and now we need to be supporting them any way we can. This drought is getting uglier by the day and last week farmers told me it’s so bad that that it’s now beyond anything they have experienced. Many are in uncharted territory. Ramping up drought relief is vitally important. We’re going to need more before this thing is through and I’ll continue to push to get it.

Two projects in the Lithgow area have received grants through the Australian Government’s Armistice Centenary Grants Program to commemorate Australia’s role in the First World War and pay tribute to our service men and women. A $6,000 grant for the Lithgow World War One Commemorative Plaque Project will cover the cost of a plaque listing the names of those 768 Lithgow service men and women who served during World War One.

The Portland RSL-Sub Branch will receive $3,750 to add an additional 104 names to the existing memorial, also commemorating the service of those who went to the First World War from the local area. I have no doubt both projects will create a lasting legacy of remembrance in the Lithgow and Portland communities.

CARE FOR THOSE EDUCATION TASTER A SUCCESS WHO CARE FOR THE LAND DONATE TO THE LANDCARE DROUGHT RELIEF APPEAL Australians are being asked to help make a tangible difference to farmers experiencing intense drought by making a donation to the Landcare Drought Relief Appeal. Submitted by: Naomi Straw Funds raised through the Landcare Drought Relief Appeal will be distributed to Landcare groups operating in intense drought-affected areas in New South Wales and Queensland, enabling them to provide much-needed support to local farmers. Kentucky farmer and chair of Southern New England Landcare Karen Zirkler is experiencing first-hand the toughest drought on record. “It’s shocking, absolutely shocking,” Karen said. “There are hillsides in Tamworth once covered with eucalyptus trees and now they are all dying. I have never seen it like this before and I’ve lived in the bush all my life.” The majority of Landcare groups in the Southern New England region are made up of farmers. These groups have been integral to caring for the area; creating wildlife corridors, protecting native vegetation, and controlling weed and feral animal encroachment. Now it’s all about survival. “People are getting tired, stressed, and anxious about the long-term forecast. As financial pressures mount, the risk of suicide and family break-ups increases,” Karen said. It is during times like this that Landcare groups have a crucial part to play. Karen explains: “Getting people together and supporting one another is what Landcare is all about. We could be running workshops that help farmers build their drought resilience and capacity to make decisions. As we are farmers ourselves, we know what support is needed and how to provide it.” However, as the drought takes its toll on the entire community there is no money for Landcare groups to be able to provide this much-needed support. According to Landcare Australia chief executive officer Dr Shane Norrish, being equipped with the right knowledge and tools is integral to these farmers surviving the drought and maintaining an income source for the future. “While there are pressing immediate needs, these farmers also need assistance that brings long-term solutions. They need help to get through this drought and then be able to recover when seasons eventually improve,” Dr Norrish said. Running workshops that help farmers build drought resilience is just one way Landcare groups in droughtaffected areas can support their local farmers. These community groups also create opportunities for individuals to come together and provide one another with additional support, whether it be advice on supplementary feeding or just being there to lend a sympathetic ear. According to Dr Norrish, “The emotional and social support these groups offer, especially during times of hardship, is something no amount of money can buy. But if we can raise $100,000 through the Landcare Drought Relief Appeal we can help these Landcare groups support the needs of many desperate farmers in their region.” The Landcare Drought Relief Appel runs until the 30 September 2018. Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and can be made at www.landcareaustralia.org.au.

BE A PART OF BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR THE LITHGOW LGA

Lithgow City Council is calling for nominations from community members interested in helping to review Council services and identify a strategic way forward for the future of the Lithgow LGA.

Council is seeking interested members of the community to participate in a Community Reference Panel to provide positive feedback on Council services and the future of Lithgow. The panel will comprise approximately 20 people who represent a broad cross section of the community. We are looking for people who are interested in being a part of the process and believe they are representative of one or more of the following communities within the LGA, such as, but not limited to: youth, seniors, business, tourism, farming and agriculture, rural villages, industry, mining, environmental sector, indigenous and multicultural communities.

and inspire young people to take up education, training or employment in Lithgow. Today provided great insight into local opportunities that could be pursued in the future,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Cr Stephen Lesslie. Highlights from the day included tours of all facilities as well as the University of Notre Dame’s simulation lab, where students got to meet Simon a very compliant ‘patient’ that can simulate the response of a real patient; WSU’s physics lightning energy experiment and nursing’s vital signs demonstration; as well as TAFE’s hospitality practical. “This was a fantastic day that really showcased local opportunities and future career pathways” said Rebecca Hamment, Careers Advisor from Lithgow High School. To date, 122 young people have participated in a Future Finders entrepreneur, leadership or business workshop and 65 young people have participated in a taster session. In upcoming months there will be employment tasters, leadership challenges, social enterprise workshops and a youth leadership forum. The role of the Community Reference Panel includes: • Provide representation to the greater Lithgow community in the review process. • Consider the full range of services and facilities that Council provides to its local community. • Provide input based on global (whole of council area) thinking and representation. • Work with Council to identify service priorities that will guide Council in its planning and decision-making. • Contribute to the thinking and planning processes that inform the allocation of Council’s resources. You will be required to commit to attending three meetings over a 6 week period at the Lithgow Council Chambers on: • Tuesday 11 September, 6pm – 10pm • Tuesday 25 September, 6pm – 10pm • Tuesday 9 October, 6pm – 10pm (this meeting will be held during school holidays). During this period, Panel members will be requested to discuss the outcomes of the meetings with family, friends and colleagues to gain a broader concept of community needs and priorities. We all want a better and brighter future for the Lithgow local government area. If you would like to contribute to developing positive strategies which will ensure the long term sustainability of the Lithgow region, please register your interest, together with your experience and background by way of email to ipr@lithgow.nsw.gov.au. Expressions of interest will be received up until 4.30pm on Wednesday 15 August. As numbers are limited and it is proposed to consult with a broad cross-section of the community, Council does reserve the right to ensure that we seek applicants from a wide demographic and may approach members of the community directly to ensure representation. Council reserves its right to restrict the allocation of members where the membership of the working party is full.

FIGHTING THE WAR ON WASTE WITH COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING BioPak compostable cups featured on latest episode of ABC’s War On Waste

Tuesday night’s War on Waste episode broadcast by the ABC has thrust Australia’s waste management crisis further into the spotlight, lifting the lid on the volume of food and organic waste that ends up in landfill – a hefty 60 percent of household waste is reported in the episode. Australians and consumers in general opt for convenience in favour of sustainability, daily. The result? A global plastic pollution crisis of unprecedented scale with single-use plastics and coffee cups at the centre of media, consumer and policy-maker attention. Media attention has influenced a rise in cup-only collections. But this is a temporary fix to our waste problem. The infrastructure required to collect a single item creates a burden on an already stretched recycling industry, and the trucks and specialised factories emit more carbon – cancelling out the benefits. Ultimately, these reclaimed resources are either downcycled or sent to landfill. In last night’s episode, Reucassel investigated organics waste collection as a viable solution for diverting waste from landfill, reducing methane gas emissions, recovering resources to generate economic value, and creating jobs. Composting is essential to winning the war on waste – and it isn’t just good for the environment it’s good for the economy, too. The episode highlighted Kiama High School’s efforts to reduce waste by introducing BioPak compostable packaging as a more sustainable option for single-use disposables in the school canteen. Reucassel shows a BioCup (plant-based bioplastic cup) which can be thrown in the compost with other food scraps and organic waste.

We believe compostable foodservice packaging is part of the solution. But not all councils offer commercial composting so, we launched the BioPak Compost Service – to ensure our cups and takeaway packaging, along with food scraps and organic waste, are diverted from landfill to commercial composting facilities. War On Waste has always encouraged Australians to be conscious of their consumption habits and take matters into their own hands, rather than rely on governments to clean up our act. In a recent War On Waste Q and A episode, Host Craig Recaussel said ‘I think it’s a bit hypocritical to kind of go, “Government, you sort it out. I won’t change until you do it”’. While public policymakers are still trying to assess what’s wrong with recycling programs, large corporations and small entrepreneurs alike are in the best position to take the lead. The BioPak Compost Service is an example of taking matters into our own hands and proving the model can scale. In the first six months since launch, the service has been rolled out across 1,300 suburbs in 9 major cities in Australia and New Zealand and diverted 90 tonnes of waste from landfill in six months. So what are the benefits of composting, exactly? BioPak cups and takeaway packaging can be composted along with food scraps – all in one bin, no separation required

Switching to composting also saves on your general waste bills – cheaper than the landfill levy Diverts organic waste from landfill and eliminate the associated methane emissions Composting supports the circular economy – it returns nutrients to the soil Compost doesn’t just benefit the environment, our farmers need high-quality compost to grow our food locally – it reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers and improves the quality of the soil BioPak compostable packaging is made from rapidly renewable sustainably sourced materials – it’s not derived from finite oil resources like conventional plastic

FORESTRY LAND COMMEMORATING WWI SERVICE RATE EXEMPTION MEN AND WOMEN IN LITHGOW AND PORTLAND

Lithgow Council estimates that the value of foregone rates on Forestry lands in the Lithgow LGA is $414,000 p.a. LGNSW has recently called for the abolition of the rate exemption for operational land managed by the NSW Forestry Corporation and this is supported by Lithgow Council. “A rate exemption currently applies to operational land managed by the NSW Forestry Corporation. Forestry operations have an impact on Council roads and other transport infrastructure in the Lithgow Council LGA and beyond”, said Lithgow Council Mayor Councillor Stephen Lesslie. Forestry Corporation activities are commercial in nature. It can be argued that the Corporation is receiving a competitive advantage, with the costs of maintaining and renewing transport infrastructure impacted by their operations being shifted to local Councils. Councillor Lesslie added, “the Mayor of Oberon Council, Cr Kathy Sajowitz, has written to The Hon Paul Toole MP to establish a dialogue with a view to finding a solution to the issue. Lithgow Council supports the action taken by Cr Sajowitz.” LGNSW and Lithgow Council call on the State Government to introduce a system for transport infrastructure contributions by the Forestry Corporation to address the ongoing infrastructure maintenance, upgrade and renewal needs of council roads.

Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee is pictured with members of the Portland RSL Sub-Branch and members of the Lithgow World War One Commemorative Project Inc.

Two projects in the Lithgow area have received grants through the Australian Government’s Armistice Centenary Grants Program to commemorate Australia’s role in the First World War and pay tribute to our service men and women. Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee today announced $6,000 for the Lithgow World War One Commemorative Plaque project, while a further $3,750 has been allocated to the Portland RSL-Sub Branch. Mr Gee said the $6,000 grant for the Lithgow World War One Commemorative project will cover the cost of a plaque listing the names of those 768 Lithgow service men and women who served during World War One. “The bronze plaque, which will be placed in Elizabeth Park, will honour those 768 people from the Lithgow area who served in World War One and fought for our freedom,” Mr Gee said. “Over the past three years, members of the Lithgow World War One Commemorative Project Inc. have worked tirelessly identifying those who either returned from service or paid the ultimate sacrifice, and who are not listed on the existing World War One Cenotaph in Lithgow which was first erected in 1917. “The plaque will give these service men and women the

long overdue public recognition they deserve and provide a lasting memorial for their descendants.” The Portland RSL-Sub Branch will receive $3,750 to add an additional 104 names to the existing memorial, also commemorating the service of men and women from the First World War. Both of these projects represent successful applicants receiving funding for community projects to commemorate Australia’s wartime history and the 100th anniversary of the Armistice recently announced by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Darren Chester. “Commemorating this important date in our history is a true testament to the success of the Anzac Centenary 2014–18 and I have no doubt both projects will create a lasting legacy of remembrance in the Lithgow and Portland communities,” Mr Gee added. “The commitment of organisations such as the Portland RSL Sub-Branch and Lithgow World War One Commemorative Project Inc. ensures communities like ours can preserve our local history for future generations.” Under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program, every electorate in Australia will receive up to $50,000 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War.

HOW TO SAVE ON YOUR ELECTRICITY The State’s peak business organisation, the NSW Business Chamber recently launched its free ‘NSW Business Energy Comparison’ tool available to businesses in the region.

Advocating for affordable and reliable energy has been a priority of the Chamber for a long time, aiming to reduce excessive network costs and concentration of wholesale and retail markets. “What we are really surprised to find, and this has been flagged in the media a lot, is the complexity of quotes that companies and residents have been given. These quotes are making it almost impossible to work out whether you’re on the best deal or not” said Vicki Seccombe, Regional Manager, Western NSW Business Chamber. “The Chamber consistently gets feedback from business that energy costs are ‘top three’ in their concerns. We’re determined that, while we keep lobbying for long term changes in the energy market in reliability and reduction in prices, we should help businesses and the community in finding the best deal possible. “As the representative of the business community we have developed a platform that is very easy, very quick and free of charge – allowing us to compare offers in the

market and get people on the best deal immediately. Locally we’ve had a business in Orange already save $8,700 per year off their estimated future annual energy bill,” Vicki Seccombe said. This solution allows a business to submit their latest bill online at https://energy.nswbusinesschamber.com. au and request either an email or phone call to obtain an energy comparison. After only just over four weeks in the market, businesses in NSW have, through the free “NSW Business Energy Comparison” tool, identified over $1,000,000 in annual energy savings. “On average we’re saving businesses about $1,500 per annum on their estimated future bills, but there are some big energy consumers such as bakeries and car dealers who are saving over $20,000 per year.” said Vicki Seccombe. ‘While the drought continues to affect the region, there’s no point waiting for your current provider to call you up and offer a discount. It doesn’t always happen. If however, our action through comparison prompts a reaction from the retailer, that’s got to be a good thing” Vicki said.

HELPING OUR FARMERS - SPECIAL FEATURE CHAMBER ASSESSES DROUGHT IMPACTS ON BUSINESS With 99% of NSW suffering extended drought conditions, the NSW Business Chamber is examining the flow on effects to regional communities and businesses. Whilst it has been pleasing to see both Federal and State government responding with farm aid packages, the extended drought has much broader implications. “The Western NSW Business Chamber believes there is clear evidence the impacts of drought flow on significantly to regional businesses that support and make up the fabric of our rural and regional communities. We know many of our members are already struggling with increasing cost pressures in areas such as fuel, gas and electricity prices, then on top of that comes the impact of the drought resulting in falling sales, stifled business growth and employment in the region.” said Vicki Seccombe, Regional Manager, Western NSW Business Chamber. In order to better understand the broader situation,

the Chamber recently introduced a survey, which seeks to understand the impacts of drought on businesses that support our regional and rural communities. The survey can be found on the following link and is open until Thursday 16 August. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/nswbcdroughtsurvey “We urge all regional business owners and operators to complete the survey. In times like this, we need to come together to support all our businesses, both farming and non-farming business and look for solutions that help our communities to remain strong and viable during this time. The NSW Business Chamber will ensure our state and federal governments have a clear picture of the impact across our regional communities, and can implement strategies to address these issues with our support.” Ms Seccombe said

IMMEDIATE RELIEF FOR FARMING FAMILIES TAKES DROUGHT RELIEF TO $576 MILLION · Coalition Government announces $190 million package for immediate drought relief. · The Farm Household Allowance (FHA) will include two lump sum supplementary payments worth up to $12,000 a year · The FHA assets tests will be changed to allow thousands more farmers to access support.

Farming families across the Calare electorate will receive immediate additional financial support to help them and their communities get through the drought. The new measures include cash payments totalling $12,000 as part of the Farm Household Allowance (FHA) scheme. Farming families can now receive up to a total of $28,000 a year in assistance following the announcement of the $12,000 grants to FHA for eligible households. Thousands more farming families will be able to access the FHA as the Australian Government has also increased the net asset threshold cap from $2.6 million to $5 million. Today’s announcements bring the total support provided by the Coalition to households and communities in drought to $576 million. Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee said the $190 million package of immediate relief announced today, including support for mental health services, would be welcomed by the farming families doing it tough right across the Central West. “I’m very pleased that the Federal Government has just announced new drought support measures,” Mr Gee said. “In the Australian Parliament I’ve been calling for drought relief to be ramped up as conditions worsened and I’m very glad that the call has been answered. “We’re in this for the long haul and we will stand with our farmers every step of the way. “I was out visiting drought affected farmers across our region last week and I’ve taken a range of further measures and suggestions back to the government in Canberra, because we’re going to need more support as the weather heats up and the outlook on the land continues to worsen. “You’ve got to remember that when the Australian economy was in a recent slowdown, it was our farmers and agriculture which got us through. Our farmers have supported us when we needed them, and now we need to be supporting our farmers in any way we can. “This drought is getting uglier by the day and last week farmers told me it’s so bad that that it’s now beyond

anything they have experienced. Many are in unchartered territory. “Ramping up drought relief is vitally important. We’re going to need more before this thing is through and I’ll continue to push to get it,” Mr Gee added. Additional measures announced today also include; · An extra $5 million in the Rural Financial Counselling Service, which will provide additional support for farmers - particularly those applying for the FHA for the first time. · $15 million to help the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal with small grants for not-forprofit community groups for locally driven targeted support. · $11.4 million in mental health support initiatives including: Additional funding for Primary Health Networks in drought affected areas to cope with increased demand. · Those accessing counselling via Skype will no longer have their first appointment in person. This recognises the long distances and the cost of travel in money and time for rural people. · An Empowering Communities program that allows local communities to tailor local mental health responses to their needs. Eligible communities can apply for funds up to $1 million for communityled initiatives that improve mental health and community resilience. · Funding will be provided to ReachOUT to go out into drought affected communities and raise awareness of their youth and children’s counselling services group. Fast facts: · Households eligible for the Farm Household Allowance - a fortnightly payment totalling around $16,000 a year to help farming families in tough times - will receive two additional lump sum payments on 1 September 2018 and 1 March 2019. Couples will receive up to an additional $12,000 and single households will receive up to $7,200. · The change will apply for the remainder of the current financial year, with the review of FHA due back early in 2019 to provide further guidance on this important issue. ·Today’s announcements bring the total support provided by the Coalition Government to households and communities during the current drought to $576 million with more to come. This figure is in addition to the concessional drought loans available to farm businesses through the Regional Investment Corporation and there is more to come.

LITHGOW WOOLIES HELPS THE FARMERS Woolworths Lithgow will donate all profits from fresh food sales this Saturday to support droughtaffected Aussie farmers.

All profits from sales in the fresh department at Woolworths Lithgow and supermarkets nationwide, this Saturday, August 11, will be donated to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal in support of farmers impacted by the drought. It follows Woolworths’ initial $1.5 million donation, plus further Woolworths Lithgow fundraising, which is helping Rural Aid deliver more hay, essential items and counselling support services to farmers in need. Charles Alder Rural Aid CEO said; “The Australian farming community is a resilient one, but there is an urgent need for ongoing support for farmers who continue to do it tough during this drought. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response of the Woolworths store teams and customers over the past week. Since the supermarket came on board as a partner with their initial $1.5 million donation and opened up fundraising channels in their stores, we’ve been able to provide more certainty to hundreds of farmers who have reached out to us in urgent need of feed for their livestock. Additionally we’ve been able to increase vital counselling services available for farming families in regional communities.” Woolworths Lithgow Store Manager, Brendan Edwards said; “It’s been amazing to see our customers and team rally behind Aussie farmers impacted by this drought. “In less than a week, Woolworths customers nationally have already donated in excess of $600,000 for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal through our checkouts nationwide. “This generosity is making a real difference in rural communities, and has inspired us to build on our support of Rural Aid’s vital work. “On top of the $1.5 million commitment Woolworths made last week, we’ll be donating all fresh department profits this Saturday to Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale appeal at our supermarkets. “This means all profits from sales of fruit and veg, meat, the chilled section, bakery and deli at Woolworths Lithgow, supermarkets nationwide and online this Saturday will help support farmers doing it tough because of the drought.” Fresh department profits donated on Saturday August 11 will help Rural Aid to fund more stock livestock feed for farmers, household supplies and counselling services. Charles Alder concluded; “This further boost to funding this Saturday will have a significant impact on the long term support we are going to be able to provide farmers in drought affected regions.” Lithgow customers can also donate to the Buy a Bale appeal in store at Woolworths Lithgow, or any other Woolworths, Woolworths Metro or Woolworths Petrol store, as well as Woolworths Online. All donations over $2 are tax deductible and 100% of the funds go to Rural Aid. This weekend Woolworths will also put a spotlight on Australian produce, with Fresh Fairs in Woolworths Lithgow offering customers a great range of fresh products to sample across fruit and veg, deli, bakery, seafood and meat.

New scholarships funded by Western NSW Local Health District will help Indigenous students study medicine at UNSW and then return to the west of the state for internships. Submitted by: Lucy Carroll

Funding for new scholarships to support Indigenous medical students studying at UNSW Sydney will be provided by Western NSW Local Health District, the NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard, announced on Tuesday night. The funding boost from the LHD will go to the existing Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Program, which will offer Indigenous medical students from western NSW full board and accommodation at UNSW’s residential Shalom College. The partnership will support up to two students at a time, providing support over five years of training. After graduation, the students will return to the west for a 12-month internship. “We hope this support will allow a future doctor to come from the west, return there upon graduation and even further their career in the west,” Mr Hazzard said. Since 2009, the scholarship program, run by the notfor-profit organisation Shalom Gamarada, has helped 41 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women graduate from UNSW, 23 of them as medical doctors. Roughly 10% of all Indigenous doctors in Australia have received support from the scholarship program. Several graduates have recently taken up placements at Dubbo Base Hospital. “Each of these graduates is not just doing it for themselves, they are emissaries for greater things. The government, through our LHD, has recognised the value of this program and to be able to add and contribute to new scholarships is a privilege,” Mr Hazzard said. Mr Hazzard joined The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir, patron of Shalom Gamarada; UNSW Chancellor David Gonski; UNSW Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Megan Davis; NSW shadow minister Walt Secord; Shalom College’s former president Ilona Lee AM; former UNSW Lecturer in Aboriginal health, Professor Lisa

Lithgow High School

Jackson Pulver AM, and UNSW students at the event at Parliament House on Tuesday night. Mr Hazzard thanked Dubbo Base Hospital senior specialists Dr Colin McClintock and Dr Jeniffer FioreChapman for their work directly with the Western NSW LHD to develop the new scholarships. “They both see first-hand every day the health issues of Aboriginal people in western NSW,” he said. “Their innovative response with this program is one reason why Dubbo hospital has a great reputation as a pivotal regional health care provider.” UNSW graduate and former scholarship recipient Jsef McDonald, who lived at Shalom College from 2006 until 2011 and is now a psychiatry registrar at John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, spoke about the impact the scholarship has had on his medical work in the community. “I am so fortunate to be able to help people from my own community,” said Dr McDonald, an Awabakal man from the Newcastle area. “How do you value comforting a family after a suicide attempt? Or helping a mother who presents with psychosis after the birth of a baby? The investment in these scholarships is essential. By supporting Indigenous medical students, we can increase the number of Indigenous doctors. The education of non-Indigenous students in Indigenous health is also vital to destigmatise the subject with the hope of increasing participation. This is not only in the spirit of reconciliation but also with the hope it will improve Indigenous health outcomes. “Shalom College provided was a good environment for study that is strongly anti-racism, which is such a big part of its success – it is such a safe environment. I benefited a lot from the role models there.” Former director of Shalom College, Dr Hilton Immerman, who is a Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Trustee, said the new scholarships are very significant in increasing the number of Indigenous Australians studying and practising medicine at UNSW. “The College has 130 students, with 24 Indigenous students on scholarship. There has been concern about the fact Indigenous retention rates are generally below 50%, but one of the things this program has done is increase retention rates; we have had a 90% pass rate, and over 70% completion rate,” said Dr Immerman. “Many Indigenous medical students are competing against the brightest and most privileged students in the country. It’s all the more remarkable there has been a high pass rate. Much of this is linked to the culture of the College – it is small with a high-level of support services.”

VOLUNTEERS HELP RESTORE HABITAT FOR THE ENDANGERED PURPLE COPPER BUTTERFLY

Submitted by: Lucy Haynes For a week this September, Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) will join forces with the Forestry Corporation of NSW and Local Land Services to help restore habitat for the Purple Copper Butterfly (Paralucia spinifera). Known to locals as the ‘Bathurst Butterfly’, this unique species is listed as endangered and only found here in NSW. Living in only isolated pockets between Lithgow, Oberon and Bathurst, the Purple Copper Butterfly Lifecyle works in partnership with a local ant (Anonychomyra itinerant). In a cool twist of nature, the ants serve as attendants to the butterfly larvae, carrying them up to leaves of the bushy Blackthorn to feast in the dead of night and offering additional protection from predators. In return, the larvae secrete a sugary liquid, to which, the ants are seduced. To protect this relationship and enhance habitat for

PRESTIGE BOXING GYM’S OFFICIAL OPENING

Bathurst MP Paul Toole has officially opened the Prestige Boxing Gym in Lithgow. Mr Toole stopped in at the gym last Saturday to unveil a plaque marking this special occasion for owners Roger Spence and his partner Roxanne. While he was there he got to find out the fitness benefits boxing offers when he was put through his paces by local boxing legend Spike Cheney who became a household name after winning a silver medal at the 1988 Olympic Games. Mr Toole said the gym caters for a range of abilities and ages and is a welcome addition to the sporting activities available in the district. “Boxing is sport synonymous with Lithgow and I am sure the Prestige Gym will go from strength to strength. The sport is a great way to keep fit and also offers the chance to get involved in competition and make new friends,” he said. “The gym even offers a mums and bubs class, but what is very important is the fact it sets aside one afternoon every fortnight where men can drop in and talk with each other about mental health issues and I think that’s

this endangered species, a team of intrepid volunteers will hit the ground just as the weather begins to warm, coinciding with the peak period of butterfly activity as the adult butterflies begin to emerge. Led by CVA ecologist, and butterfly enthusiast, David Jones, volunteers will work to remove invasive plant species, including English Broome and Lantana from carefully selected sites. Lucy Haynes, Conservation Officer for CVA is keen to see locals get involved with this project “It’s something practical locals can do to help, although we have volunteers joining from across the state, we’d love to have locals join us for a day or two up in Sunny Corner”. Between pulling out weeds, and planting larval food plants, volunteers will also be keeping a keen eye out for the Purple Copper butterfly “We’ve timed this work to coincide with a period of peak butterfly activity and hope that volunteers are rewarded with a sighting” exclaimed CVA Regional Manager, Suzie Wright. Locals are welcome to join for a day or even just a few hours of volunteering, for more information please contact Lucy at Conservation Volunteers Australia, Western Sydney Office 02 4721 4625. Registrations are essential – please email westernsydney@cva.org.au Conservation Volunteers Australia is Australia’s leading organisation for practical conservation, completing more than 2000 conservation projects across Australia every year. a great initiative.” Mr Toole congratulated everyone concerned in getting the Prestige Boxing Gym off the ground and looks forward to it producing future champions of the sport. The Prestige Boxing Gym is located at the Pottery Plaza on Valley Drive.

COMMUNITY TALES OF THE OLDE SEA

The Sea will rise over the Blue Mountains and Beyond!

A live music theatre show presented by Solferino Cinemas & Entertainment premiering in September 2018 will take you on a rollicking sea journey into the past incorporating tales of olden-day seafaring peoples along with music, storytelling and poetry. Listen to Traditional Sea Shanties, hear legends and poetry from Ancient Seafaring Cultures and discover the Great Navigators and Mysterious Creatures of the Deep. Learn of the World’s Ocean Mythology and its evocative Creation Stories passed down along with the true history of cunning and marauding Pirates. Be amazed at the extraordinary Sea Survival and Castaway stories of old. Tales of the Olde Sea is a mixture of comedy, mystery, adventure and fun set to music, poetry, text and song and narrated with a lot of humerous sailor talk that underpins many of our modern-day English and Irish expressions. Extracts from Homer’s Odyssey describes the inexplicable sea along with dreamlike creation text from the dead sea scrolls. The show also describes the greatest ocean navigators and seafarers on earth, the Pacific Islander people, who utilised the incredible star navigation technique to cross thousands of miles of oceans on a regular basis. There is the story of the largest fleet of boats ever to sail the earth before the 20th Century being the ancient Chinese Navigator ‘Zheng He’ who circumnavigated the globe with his south-pointing compass. Played on the Harp are haunting Irish songs about beautiful Celtic fables like the “Selkie”, a Seal Woman from the Sea and the myth of the Water Kelpie, a giant horse-like sea creature that rears above the foaming waves. Listen to curious ‘true’ mystery tales like The Flying Dutchman Ship, Ancient Sea Giants, Fairy Boats, Ghost Ships and the adventures of real Pirates and Privateers. There is also a lot to learn of the heroic and sometimes brutal stories of survivors and castaways who managed to cling to life for months on end against the exposure and rages that the sea was to throw at them. A supper is included as part of the evening which draws on recipes of the old seafarers! Written and Directed by Aanya Mary it is performed by a live ensemble featuring Martyn Cook (Celtic Harp and Irish Whistle), Kate Woolfe (Vocals and Text) and John Duffy (Irish Musician and Storyteller). It showcases original and traditional music of the sea composed and arranged by Martyn Cook Tales of the Olde Sea opens with a premiere season in the Blue Mountains and Central West from 22nd September 2018, and is set to tour regionally.

In the design of the Camellia Walk, Mayfield has been gathering visitor feedback regarding mobility around the garden over the last 18 months, including from Julie Jones from “Have Wheelchair Will Travel.” Mayfield garden and construction teams have created beautiful wide pathways that will accommodate wheelchairs and prams. These paths circle the Water Garden to overlook Mayfield Lake, avoiding the stairs and boardwalks, but allowing for stunning prospects into the gardens. After months of work, the Camellia Walk opened, and today, Mayfield had two things to celebrate. The long-awaited rain arrived this morning along with many friends of Mayfield to help us open Camellia Walk. Julie from “Have Wheelchair Will Travel” and her family, specifically her son Brandan, came to help Mayfield open the mobility accessible pathway. Along with honoured guest, James Horsburgh, Garrick Hawkins, and members of the Hawkins’ family, friends of Mayfield, and Mayfielders usher in a new era for Mayfield and local tourism – one of increased accessibility to all visitors. Mayfield CEO, Hamish Keith welcomed all to the opening and declared today a double celebration – the opening of the Camellia Walk and the long-awaited rain. “It’s great to see the number of people who came out today despite the inclement weather, which none of us would complain about because we know our farmers and gardeners so desperately need it.” Hamish went on to say, “We are so excited to be able to expand the opportunities

for all visitors to Mayfield regardless of their physical limitations or age to explore more of the beautiful garden.” Julie said, “We really welcome this opportunity for this beautiful garden to be available to so many more people.” She went on to say that with her background in tourism, specifically considering people with mobility concerns, that she has always been very aware of the desire for people to see places like Mayfield, and she added, “I am just absolutely thrilled that [Mayfield] is going to be more accessible.” James Horsburgh, who grew up in far west New South Wales on a property between Walgett & Brewarrina helped Brandon open the Camellia Walk. In 2004, James suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury following a diving accident that rendered him a quadriplegic. Since that time James has gone on to do his Masters in Law and today is one of five partners at McIntosh McPhillamy and Co in Bathurst, one of the oldest and largest legal firms in regional New South Wales. James has previously been a part of the Bathurst Council’s Access Committee and now spends a large amount of his time speaking to school groups and organisations about those issues facing people with disabilities. James said, “Having been to Mayfield before, but not being able to access the garden, it is awesome that now, with the opening of this new walk, [I will be] able to come out to Mayfield and share the experience with my family is something that I’ll treasure.” “What we need to remember about the tourism industry,” Julie Jones said in her remarks at the ceremony today. “Although everyone sees accessible tourism as a niche market, opening up a walkway, like the Camellia Walk means, that people who have knee surgery, people with prams, people with wheelchairs, there’s so many people who actually need that access. Just somebody who can’t do stairs anymore will be able to enjoy the garden.” She went on to say that “We need as a society to start looking at access like that as being for more than just people who are using a wheelchair.” On a personal note, Julie Jones said, “We’re thrilled as a family to be able to enjoy places like Mayfield.” When life is filled with things like therapy, doctors’ visits, and appointments, she said that reconnecting as a family, traveling, and enjoying daytrips like this really helps her family bond. “It keeps siblings together, and families together, and makes us a happier family.” Mary, mother of two, joined the celebration today. She said, “With two little ones, the new Camellia Walk means that now we can get to that much more of the garden with the pram.” The Camellia Walk is open 363 days a year (closed only 2526 December) along with the rest of Mayfield Garden so guests can enjoy this new mobility friendly addition year ‘round.

COMMUNITY, CARE & CONVIVIALITY: FREEMASONRY IN LITHGOW

During September, Eskbank House Museum presents “Community, Care and Conviviality: Freemasonry in Lithgow”, an exhibition that explores the social side of Freemasonry in Lithgow. Objects and images from the Eskbank House Museum collection are accompanied by pieces from the Lithgow District Historical Society image collection, the Lithgow & District Family History Society, and local Freemasons. “The chance to see Lithgow’s Masonic history told using objects and images is an opportunity not to be missed,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie. He continued “Organisations like this have played, and continue to play, an important role in our community. This exhibition speaks to the community and social connections of these organisations.” With the industrialisation of Lithgow after the arrival

of the railway in the 1860s fraternal organisations appeared. Amongst the trade unions, benefit societies and other working men’s organisations the Freemasons established a Lodge in the town. From the 1880s there has been a Masonic presence in Lithgow. In 1913 the Freemasons were joined by women through the formation of the Hartford Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star. Throughout their history these organisations have offered social and charitable opportunities for their members. As well as socialising amongst themselves after Lodge and Chapter meetings, they also met with brother and sister groups and the public, often dining and dancing until the small hours. As well as internal benevolence provisions there is an ongoing commitment to a number of community causes, including aged care. Despite the falling memberships both the Masons and the Order of the Eastern

Star are still generous contributors to many charities. The Exhibition Curator, Michael Stevenson, praised Lithgow locals for their assistance in putting the exhibition together. “Both the Freemasons and the Order of the Eastern Star have been very generous in lending objects and telling their stories,” he said. “The opportunity to work with the passionate staff at Lithgow Library, Lithgow & District Family History Society and Eskbank House Museum has been a real pleasure.” Community, Care and Conviviality: Freemasonry in Lithgow 1st – 30th September 2018 Eskbank House Museum Corner Bennett & Inch Streets, Lithgow NSW 2790 Open Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm, entry fees apply

BEARS ALL STARS REPRESENTATIVES

COMMUNITY

On Saturday 4th August 2018 the Lithgow Bears Rugby League Club had 11 players who represented the eastern team in the 2018 New Era Cup All Stars Competition. The eastern team was made up of players from the Bears, Blackheath and Kandos and played against players from the West that involved Portland, CSU and Orange. Submitterd by: John Fitzgerald

The All Stars game was arranged due to the short season being only 10 rounds and gave a chance for each club to socially interact with one another. Unfortunately only 21 players could be picked to represent each team. To make it fair amongst each club, a minimum of 5 to 6 players could play. The Bears Rugby League representatives consisted of: Jacob Monaghan, Blake Collins, Kaleb Richey, Ryan Bilby, Joel Cameron and Peter Lewis. Although the boys were with the grand final winners Blackheath, the Bears boys mixed in well and played positions that were different to what they are used to. It was a tough competition with a lot of competitive and strong players. Unfortunately the eastern team got beat by the West. Ryan managed to score a centre position and played for majority of the game and even just short of the line from scoring a try. Kaleb undertook some massive hit ups and managed to score some penalties. Blake, Joel, Jacob and Peter all tried hard throughout the game and was very valuable to the team. The Bears League Tag representatives consisted of: Latia Hardie, Emma Smith, Monique Millmore, Katie Jeffery and Marli-Jai Hydee. The game was extended to be played for 80 minutes; an additional 40 minutes to a normal game. This was to allow each player to have a fair

opportunity on the field. The starting line-up consisted of 3 Bears players on the field with Latia kicking off for the start of the game and Monque kicking a conversion for one of the eastern trys. One of Latia’s kick offs even forced a penalty to the eastern team. Katie, Emma and Marli were all in good positions to have some runs of the ball and undertook amazing tags.

Unfortunately both eastern sides went down to the western team. The game was a learning experience for all involved and all players should be congratulated for their efforts. The Bears club are proud of the Bears representatives and hope that they had fun in the process.

NEW ERA MIDWEST CUP’S EASTERN VERSUS WESTERN REPRESENTATIVE TOURNAMENT. Two outstanding games of rugby league were the product of last week’s New Era Midwest Cup’s Eastern versus Western representative tournament.

Held at Bathurst’s Carrington Park, the highly entertaining senior games - both the men’s and leaguetag - were devised to showcase the Midwest competition, but more precisely were showpieces of the New Era Midwest Cup’s finest. Blackheath, Lithgow and Kandos players made up Eastern - and CSU, Orange and Portland comprised the Western team. Despite being thrown together with little preparation, the players from both teams looked as if they had been together for years, playing a high standard of football, with the intensity of a grand final. Apart from Eastern leading for seven minutes early in the men’s game, Western afterwards took control and were never headed, although Eastern scored a flurry of tries in the second half and were never very far from their

opponents. The representative concept was fully embraced, the individual clubs contributing their club members to assist with the tournament’s organisation. The earlier leaguetag game, with a strong influence of players from the grand final clubs, was another exceptional display that showed how far the women’s skills have

improved in the three years since their induction into the New Era Midwest Cup. The Western leaguetag team was a big winner, CSU players prominent in scoring 30 points against Eastern’s 6. The success of the tournament augurs well for its continuation in the seasons to come.
