This Sunday’s market will also incorporate the Mind

Body Spirit Fair, now in it’s fourth year. Market goers will be able to enjoy a relaxing massage, get a psychic reading or a spiritual healing as well as all the regular market stalls.

From the editor

We are into the swing of things now with only 10 more papers after this week until Christmas. Can you believe it? Although, the ‘silly season’ is not quite upon us yet, there seems to be a little bit of it in the air this week down in Sydney. Whilst I often think the drivers in Sydney are crazy, it seems that the whole world has gone crazy this week. I am of course making reference to the Opera House sails being used to announce the barrier draw of the Everest horse race. Whilst this may seem hypocritical of a newspaper owner where the entire business model relies on advertising, I just don’t think it is right. People understand that in order for this paper to be free we have to sell ads. However, the Opera House is the shining light of the Arts in this country, and to sell it off to the highest bidder is to me a sad sign of the times where everything is for sale. Will the Harbour Bridge be next? Will we see Coca Cola advertising their next big thing across the sales if the price is right. I am with all of the people that rightly protested this. Consumerism has gone mad in recent years, and as anyone who has watched the movie Wall-E knows, it can only end badly. Whilst that Disney movie was a far fetched tale a decade ago, it seems that certain powers that be may have seen it as a how to guide… let’s hope not. Now - on to more positive things. October is jam packed with events across the Lithgow region, this weekend is the Resilience festival, and I was very happy to hand out some tickets that we bought to support the cause to 6 lucky winners on Thursday, I hope everyone gets out and supports this festival, tickets will also be available at the gate. Sunday is Market day in Portland again with the Mind Body Spirit fair joining the party this month, and also the Gone Fishing day at Wallerawang. And while that seems like a big weekend brace yourself because the weekend of the 26, 27 & 28 is going to be even bigger. I need a lie down just thinking about it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 75th Anniversary of the completion of the Thai/ Burma Railway

Seventy-five years ago, the Thai–Burma railway was completed on 16 October 1943, costing the lives of more than 2,800 Australian Prisoners of War (POWs), including some 700 at Hellfire Pass. During the Second World War, the Japanese sought to maintain their armies in Burma and began construction of a 420 km railway between western Thailand and Burma through harsh jungles and mountains. Construction of the Thai–Burma railway began in October 1942 and by the time the line was finished, around 270,000 Asian labourers and some 60,000 Allied POWs, including Australian, British, Dutch, and American troops had worked on its construction. The most notorious site along the railway is Hellfire Pass, where prisoners were required to drill, blast and dig their way through solid limestone and quartz rock. Shifts lasted up to 18 hours a day during the most intense period, a regimen that continued for some six weeks. The Pass was named both for the brutal working conditions and the eerie light thrown by bamboo fires as skeletal figures laboured by night, reminiscent to some of Dante’s Inferno. Private James ‘Snow’ Peat found strength in these difficult conditions by thinking of home, and those waiting for him, I had a wife and little girl. And the will to live. I said ‘I’m not dying in this bloody place, and that’s all there is to it.’ This attitude, and the resilience and determination shown by Australian POWs during the Second World War epitomises the Anzac spirit forged more than two decades earlier during the First World War. Today, we remember the some 75,000 Asian labourers who died alongside the Allied prisoners while working on the railway and we honour the service and sacrifice of the some 12,500 Allied POWs who died, including more than 2,800 Australians. Lest we forget. Darren Chester MP, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs

Dementia awareness

It has been uplifting to see the local support for Dementia Awareness month in September. I would like to thank the Lithgow City Council, particularly Councillor Cassandra Coleman, for sponsoring the event held at the Lithgow Library on Thursday 27 September 2018. Special thanks to the staff at the Library for their great work in organising the event, to Councillor Coleman for attending and providing ongoing support, to the speakers – two of whom shared their personal story about living with young onset dementia – and members of the community who came along to hear about dementia. According to Dementia Australia’s 2018 statistics, there are approximately 436,370 Australians living with dementia and that number is growing daily. A diagnosis of dementia is confronting and challenging but we are fortunate to have excellent resources available to us. Guest speakers at the Library event spoke about the role of maintaining cognitive skills and a healthy diet, physical exercise, and the support available through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Dementia Australia, and Lithgow Information Neighbourhood Centre (Linc). Dementia Australia has extensive information and resources on their web site - www.dementia.org.au - about dementia, including how to become a Dementia Friend. Kas Hilton Lithgow

LITHGOW’S IN A NEW HEADSPACE

Earlier this year, Wentworth Healthcare appointed Marathon Health to operate the satellite in response to concerns that there were limited youth centred services in the Lithgow area. The satellite will be part of the headspace Bathurst service, but feature locally based staff and a service

location to support the needs of the Lithgow community. Stephen Jackson, Marathon Health CEO, says it has been wonderful to see the community rally behind this much needed service. “Young people in regional areas often struggle to find services that will meet their individual needs. It’s been great that the community, Nepean Blue Mountains PHN and Lithgow City Council are working quickly to fill an identified a gap in youth mental health with a service that is committed to young people and their wellbeing. “We have been working closely with the community to find the right site for the service location and are pleased to announce that we have signed a lease for 23 Main Street. “We will be getting input from Lithgow’s youth population in regards to the look and feel of the satellite to ensure it is a place young people feel comfortable to visit, and we hope fit out will commence in the next month.” Lizz Reay, CEO of Wentworth Healthcare says, “Primary Health Networks develop locally tailored responses to address the health needs of our region. We know that mental health is a high priority in Lithgow so I am thrilled that we have been able to provide this funding”. Peter Rohr, Marathon Health’s Group Manager of

headspace Services, says headspace Lithgow will employ staff to be based in Lithgow and will also look to partner with existing service providers to ensure young people can receive the care they need, when they need it. “Our focus will be on early-intervention, education and awareness regarding mental health. We will be working with existing service providers to address youth mental health in a connected and collaborative way.” Headspace provide 12-25 year olds mental health support, physical and sexual health, assistance with alcohol and other drugs, employment and education support, as well as information and support for parents and carers. Marathon Health is one of the largest providers of headspace services in Australia with centres in Bathurst, Cowra, Dubbo, Orange, Canberra and Queanbeyan, and is excited to bring their expertise to Lithgow. The service is expected to begin to deliver services in late 2018 and will be officially launched early next year. If you are a young person with something going on, you can access support via the following channels:

Mayor Ray Thompson today called on the Commonwealth Bank to reconsider its intention to close its Portland Branch suggesting there is an opportunity for the Bank to entrench itself in a growing and loyal community which is well placed to benefit from continuing growth in Western Sydney.

I acknowledge that the CBA has considered its position based on a range of circumstances, but would ask that the CBA consider the following in the context of its decision already made and with the possibility of review.” said Mayor Ray Thompson today. “The points that I ask the CBA to consider are1.That both Portland and Wallerawang districts are in my view, identified as long term population growth areas as metropolitan Western Sydney continues to exceed growth expectations and people seek the lifestyle quality offered in both locations.. 2.In my view, the potential for long term growth in those areas has been one underlying reason for forging links with Western Sydney and in part a catalyst for the recent invitation for Lithgow City Council to join the

Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils which has now been accepted. 3.The footprint for WSROC is now identical to that of the Local Health District (Nepean) reflecting the growing community of interest incorporating the Lithgow LGA into greater Western Sydney. It is my belief, in the context of 1, 2 and 3 above, there is an opportunity for the CBA not only to maintain a presence in Portland but to entrench itself in the long term with a growing and loyal customer base.” said Cr Thompson. Council Administration has today written to Mr Angus Sullivan, Group Executive Retail Banking Services requesting the CBA review its decision and maintain its branch presence in Portland for the long term and the potential that is on offer.

Marathon Health and Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network, are excited to announce that the headspace Lithgow satellite is close to fruition, with a site locked in at 23 Main Street.

Cr. Cass Coleman is pictured with Portland Central School Year 8 Student’s Delaney Roses , Hayley Nelson and Year 9 Student Rose Coleman at the Year 12 Graduation assembly.

Lithgow Council’s Economic Development Committee has initiated discussions on the “values” that should guide Council’s decision making as Council considers the strategic positioning of the Lithgow LGA over the next 12 months. The recent Royal Commission into Banking, Insurance and Financial Services has revealed the negative impact on customers, shareholders and the community when Corporations fail to abide by the values openly advertised in their annual reports as their guiding ethical principles. “The ethical values of any organisation need to be applied in practice to promote confidence and stability in governance in both corporate and public sectors and this applies to Lithgow Council as well.” said Mayor Ray Thompson. “Councillor Steve Ring raised the matter with Council’s administration recently after attending a course on Governance in Sydney and the matter has consequently been raised for discussion at the recent Economic Development Committee meeting held on 3rd October 2018.” said Mayor Thompson. “Our guiding values need to be agreed and adhered to as we continue to reassess Lithgow’s position and guide the community towards a better quality of employment, health and lifestyle into the future.” said Cr Ring. “We want to keep good faith with our community and not repeat the mistakes made in the corporate sector recently identified during the Banking Royal Commission.” said Cr Ring. Council’s Economic Development Committee has recommended to Council that it review Council’s strategic principles and values with a view to increasing population and quality of lifestyle for local residents in the context of the expansion of Western Sydney.

LITHGOW'S HEADSPACE OFFICE SECURED Mental health issues have been a real concern for the Lithgow community with tragic cases of local people taking their own lives. The pain and anguish in the community has been immense. Back in February, the Federal Government committed $1.06 million to provide a headspace service for those living in the Lithgow area. I'm pleased to announce that this service is now close to fruition, with a site locked in at 23 Main Street. The delivery of services is expected to commence later this year once the fit out is complete. You can’t underestimate the importance of a service like this. It lets our youth know that they are not alone and that there are people to turn to when help is needed. I believe it will make a real difference to the lives of young people in the district. Until the service in Lithgow is operational, young people who are concerned about their mental health or the mental health of their families or friends can access the eheadspace service at www.eheadspace.org.au or on 1800 650 890.

1918 – BACK FROM THE BRINK One of the real privileges of being a local member is seeing the extraordinary work of our local community members. Over the weekend there was an extraordinary event in Lithgow when Lithgow City Band presented 1918 - Back From the Brink in Lithgow’s historic Union Theatre. The play highlights the devastating impact the First World War had on Lithgow and communities around Australia - from the men and women who served, to those whose loved ones never came home. Love, service, sacrifice and salvation were the themes of this beautifully written and performed production which moved everyone who saw it. I only wish everyone in our region could have experienced it. The Australian Government helped out with $5000 Armistice Centenary Grant. Congratulations to everyone involved. It was a fitting tribute to mark the Armistice, the sacrifice of our fellow Australians, and the ten Lithgow City Band members who went to war. Lest We Forget.

✓ Additional $72 million through the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund. ✓ Further $2.7 million to the Bureau of Meteorology to develop finer scale regional weather and climate guides. ✓ Doubling the amount a farmer can borrow in low-interest loans from $1 million to $2 million. ✓ $15 million to help the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal with small grants for not-for-profit community groups. ✓ $11.4 million in mental health support initiatives. ✓ Instant asset tax write-off for fodder sheds and silos. To access any of these initiatives or for further information, please contact the Bathurst Electorate Office on (02) 6331 0524.

GLOVE BOX GUIDE LAUNCH CONGRATULATIONS The drought is not only taking a real physical and economic toll, but also a huge emotional toll as well. It’s being felt on the farm and in our villages, towns and regional cities too. Back for its seventh year, the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health has released the latest edition of the Glovebox Guide. The guide encourages rural communities to talk about mental health more openly and support each other during tough times, including drought. I’d encourage you to pick up a guide, which are available from my electorate office, and share it around.

WEST AWAITS FUNDING BOOST AFTER $9.26BN SALE

The Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) has called on the NSW Government to boost public transport in Sydney’s West following the 51 per cent sale of Sydney Motorway Corporation.

WSROC President Cr Stephen Bali said, “The Government was able to achieve $9.2 billion sale of Sydney Motorway Corporation because full time Western Sydney commuters now pay $2000 per year to use the M4; a fee that will be increased at a minimum of 4 per cent annually for the next 40 years,” he said. “This is billions of dollars sucked from the pockets of Western Sydney families. The least the Government could do is reinvest this money in better public transport services for Western Sydney. “WestConnex may offer a potential 40-minute time saving from Parramatta to Sydney Airport, but Western Sydney families and businesses will be paying dearly for this link. “By contrast, the toll-free Sydney Gateway will offer a free ride for eastern Sydney residents and businesses – who skip the tolled section at the western end of WestConnex. “Western Sydney is sick of being told they must pay for their own transport infrastructure via tolls, value-capture, or some other means, while the East receives fully funded transport links. “It is time to fix the balance and reinvest the proceeds from Sydney Motorway Corporation – a business propped up by the tolls of Western Sydney residents – into fair and equitable transport access for Western Sydney families. WSROC has identified several priority infrastructure investments for Western Sydney including: • Two north south rail links connecting the North West and South West Priority Growth Areas – forming a rail grid with the Metro North West, Western Rail Line and Leppington Line. Blacktown Blue Mountains Cumberland Fairfield Hawkesbury Lithgow Liverpool Parramatta • Duplication of the Western Rail Line west of Parramatta and improved express services from the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Richmond. • Significant increases commuter car parking at transport interchanges and train stations across Western Sydney. • Significant expansion of the region’s public bus network with a focus on connecting residential areas with town centres and Western Sydney’s employment hubs. • Increased frequency of services on the Bankstown Line (to Liverpool) and the Cumberland Line (to Campbelltown). • Rail links connecting the Western Sydney Airport precinct to key regional centres including: Penrith, Blacktown, Fairfield, Liverpool and Parramatta. • Increased accessibility at Western Sydney public transport stops including lifts and ramps at train stations.

Issue 232 - 12 October 2018

WSROC WELCOMES NEW AND REELECTED MAYORS The Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) has welcomed newly elected Mayors following a string of elections this month.

WSROC President Cr Stephen Bali said, “I would like to offer my congratulations to the newly elected Mayors of WSROC member councils Hawkesbury and Lithgow. “Mayor of Hawkesbury, Cr Barry Calvert, has 19 years’ experience in local government and currently serves as Junior Vice President to the WSROC Board. In these roles Cr Calvert has shown outstanding service to the Hawkesbury community with a focus on human services, better transport infrastructure, and appropriately placed development,” he said. “Mayor of Lithgow, Cr Ray Thompson, is currently serving his third term at Lithgow City Council and has demonstrated his passion for sports and active recreation during his time on council. Promoting healthy, active communities is a critically important issue for the WSROC region which suffers much higher rates of chronic illness and obesity than other areas of Sydney,” said Cr Bali. “I would also like to thank outgoing Mayors Cr Mary

Lyons-Buckett (Hawkesbury) and Cr Stephen Leslie (Lithgow) for their service. Both have been outstanding advocates for their communities over the last two years and will continue to do so as councillors. I look forward to working with Cr Mary Lyons-Buckett as she begins her new role as Deputy Mayor. “In addition to these new appointments, both myself and Cr Mark Greenhill have been re-elected as Mayors of Blacktown and Blue Mountains City Councils respectively,” said Cr Bali. “In his five years as Mayor, Cr Greenhill has fought passionately for the people of Blue Mountains on issues relating to Western Sydney Airport and the 2013 bushfires. I look forward to working with Cr Greenhill to deliver results for Western Sydney,” he said. Blacktown Blue Mountains Cumberland Fairfield Hawkesbury Lithgow Liverpool Parramatta Not all WSROC councils held Mayoral elections in September. Fairfield Mayor Cr Frank Carbone and Liverpool Mayor Cr Wendy Waller are popularly elected and will serve fouryear terms to 2020.

PROPERTY MARKET UPDATE National dwelling values decreased again in September, marking twelve consecutive months of falling values.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING @ Lithgow City Bowling Club (Trading as Club Lithgow) 28th October 2018 - 10.30am 2c Lithgow Street, Lithgow

The correction has largely been driven by Sydney and Melbourne where the vast majority of Australia’s property value lies. Once again, the extend of the correction has been overstated and is being continually exaggerated by certain media outlets. As an example, while values have dropped by 6.1 per cent in Sydney over the last 12 months, they achieved remarkable double digit growth in many of years preceding this period. While people who bought over the last year will certainly not be overly happy with where values are, a large pool of owners are still sitting on large capital gains. On top of this, we are still seeing a situation where there remains ‘markets within markets’ in Australia. Over the last 12 months, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Canberra, achieved capital gains over the period in question. The current price correction is a result of the low interest rate environment that the nation has, and continues to, experience. When the RBA cut rates to encourage economic

growth, the Australian market witnessed a buying frenzy, with house prices rising much more than they should have in my opinion. During this period, certain parties did everything they could to limit foreign investment despite the fact that this inbound capital was driving the large construction booms we saw in many markets. As I said at the time, the problem with this approach is that if you are not accommodating to foreign investors, they may not be there when you really need them. This scenario appears to be playing out at present. While I do not believe the correction is as bad as many parties are trying to make out, it is happening and there will be some winners from this movement in prices. First home buyers may now have many more opportunities to enter the market than they did in the past. Prices are more affordable in many markets and there is likely less competition for properties. Property prices in many areas of Western Australia, South Australia and even Brisbane look quite attractive to me. Property investment is a long term game and I suspect there could be many long term winners from savvy investments into these markets. Eventually, as typically happens with free markets, prices reach a low point where they suddenly become extremely attractive to investors and buyers. Where that point lies is always difficult to tell but prices will eventually stabilise and then recover. In the end, I firmly believe that Australia is a wonderful investment destination with a strong economy and great prospects for the future. The housing price correction that we are seeing will present some great buying opportunities for those that believe in the future of Australia and the wealth that can be generated out of its property market.

LITHGOW’S GANG GANG GALLERY TO HOST ZIG ZAG RAILWAY EXHIBITION Bathurst MP Paul Toole has announced Lithgow’s Gang Gang Gallery will host an upcoming exhibition focusing on the Zig Zag Railway.

This follows funding of $5000 from the NSW Government to help make the event happen. The exhibition runs from October 12 to November 5. An official opening will be held on Saturday, October 20 from 5-7pm. Mr Toole congratulated Sharon Howard from the Gang Gang Gallery for bringing the exhibition together. “Images of the ‘Great Zig Zag Railway’ is an exhibition by 10 artists with a diverse range of styles, media and subject,” Mr Toole said. “It features an extensive line-up of early photographs

which have been made available to the Gallery and will be on display in Gang Gang Gallery’s Studio room where a video will be running with images and information from the event 150 years ago. “The first train that rolled off the Great Zig Zag on the Lithgow side of the Blue Mountains was in 1869 at Eskbank Station. The train arrived without any fanfare or celebration.” Sharon Howard from Gang Gang Gallery said October 19, 2019 will be the 150th anniversary of this event. She said this exhibition will culminate with another celebration in October 2019 with a Youth Art Prize and Peoples Choice award. “We would like to thank Lee Wiggins, Chairman of the Great Zig Zag Corporation, Lithgow City Council and Bathurst MP Paul Toole who has supported the event with a grant through Destinations NSW,” Sharon said. The Gang Gang Gallery is located at 206 Main Street, Lithgow.

Lithgow Skulls is back for its fifth year at Lithgow Halloween with a fortnight-long exhibition of skulls opening this Friday 12th October at Lithgow Library.

LithgowSkulls has been an annual art event in conjunction with Halloween since 2014. From this time, just over 250 skulls have been created into amazing, diverse artworks and 100% have been successfully auctioned at the night of the Halloween events in Lithgow. This exhibition was the brainchild of local sculptor, Tim Johnman, who developed the idea, created the skulls and organised the hand out to artists, who were very keen to be involved. Local artists were given a concrete skull and invited to transform it from “blank canvas” to “work of art”. This year there are 55 artists participating, including painters, sculptors, textile designers, ceramicists and metalworkers. Some are seasoned skull artists, but for 17 others this will be their first experience transforming a skull. Lithgow Skulls has become a highlight of Lithgow Halloween, with the Library experiencing record visitor numbers last year. This year promises to be no different, with artists pulling out all stops to deliver some extraordinary skulls. This will be the last Skull show in its current form, as organisers and artists take a well-earned break in 2019. So make sure you head down to the Library to see the skulls before they disappear, or come along to the auction and take one home. The Mayor, Ray Thompson, will officially open the exhibition on Friday 12th October at 6.00pm at Lithgow City Library and members of the public are invited to attend. LithgowSkulls18 opens on Friday 12th October at 6pm at Lithgow Library. The skulls will be on show for 2 weeks before they are auctioned on Saturday 27th October. Auction starts at 6.30pm and all funds raised go towards Lithgow Tidy Towns Laneways Project.

HOW PARENTS CAN BEST SUPPORT THEIR CHILD THROUGH THE HSC Year 12 students are now facing arguably the most challenging time of their lives as they prepare to sit the HSC. As their final exams draw closer, it becomes increasingly important for their family and friends to be on the lookout for signs that they’re not coping.

On this World Mental Health Day (10 October), the peak body for parents with children in Catholic schools, the Council of Catholic School Parents (CCSP), is urging parents of HSC students to support their child’s mental health needs in the lead up to their final exams. CCSP Executive Director, Linda McNeil, says that there is a lot of pressure on Year 12 students to do well in their final exams, especially those who are seeking an ATAR, and it’s critical that the students’ support networks do exactly that, support them during this time. “Parents can sometimes think of the HSC as the be-all and end-all. But we need to keep things in perspective and remember that there are multiple pathways to success. “What parents may not realise is that by the time students are preparing to sit their final exams, they’ve already been through trials and years of other tests and will often have their own way of managing their stress levels to successfully prepare for exams. This doesn’t change during the HSC, so the best thing parents can do to help minimise stress is to support their child’s established study routine,” Ms McNeil said. School psychologist, Renee Tyczynski, is based at St. Francis Xavier’s College in Hamilton, a senior high school catering only to students in Years 11 and 12. The College has more than 1000 students and Mrs Tyczynski says the

school places an emphasis on teaching them about good study habits well before they sit their final exams so that they are confident and well-placed to manage the stress when the time comes. “We seek external support from experts in the area of study skills to teach students right from the beginning about good study habits, how to produce study notes, how to manage procrastination and how to cope with exam stress. The mental health of our students is a real priority for us, as it is with many schools, so we focus on equipping them early with the tools they need to handle the pressure of sitting the HSC. “Stress is not necessarily a bad thing. A certain level of stress is normal for students when they are about to sit exams, just like it is for an adult when they are about to be put to a test of some kind, such as a job interview. “For a HSC student, parents need to trust their child’s preparation routine and remember it’s the small things that count. Ensure they regularly eat healthy food, routinely take breaks, encourage them to get enough sleep as well as exercise, watch their caffeine intake and keep distractions like social media and television to a minimum. When parents inadvertently place more pressure on their child by overemphasising the importance of the HSC, the impact can be significant on students. So, check in with them to see how they are feeling and find what their expectations are in the lead up to the exams and what their future plans are to ensure you have a mutual understanding,” Mrs Tyczynski said. Things to look out for that indicate your child may not be coping with exam stress include: • being withdrawn or not keeping in touch with friends • a lack of interest in the things they enjoy • changes in sleeping or eating habits • expressing negative thoughts about the future • feeling nauseous or having minor stomach upsets • feeling cranky or irritable. “Parents should speak to their school or their GP if they are concerned about their child’s mental health at any point,” Mrs Tyczynski said.

PETER POWERS - THE NAUGHTY NAUGHTY HYPNO SHOW Peter Powers is the world’s funniest hypnotist and one of the most successful hypnotists in the world today and it is not too surprising. His live stage show draws crowds much larger than any other hypnotist in every one of the countries he performs, making him ‘the biggest box-office hypnotist’. 

Peter featured in his own TV series on Channel 7 titled “Mesmerised” during 2015 that aired in prime time. Peter has been a regular and a favourite guest on the Channel 9 Footy show and will continue to make outrageous appearances on this program during this year. Such appearances will coincide with his live touring. Referred to as “a comedy genius”, “a hypnotist without equal” and “the best in the business”, Peter delights in the antics of his hapless volunteers almost as much as his audiences. Peter’s upcoming live shows will have lots of new fun and outrageous routines where the audience can expect the unexpected. In fits of hysterical laughter, Peter seems to lose himself in each performance, pushing the boundaries of standard hypnotic fair and raising the bar with unique and truly whacky routines. All of this is delivered with a somewhat wayward humour in his distinctive, mischievous and impish style. Although the observer experiences a rollercoaster ride, on the very edge of what could be considered sane and proper, Peter manages to give us an ample glimpse of potential danger and mind-manipulation- gonewrong whilst impossibly striking the balance of not taking hypnosis too far. Beneath the well publicised image of ‘evil’ and ‘wicked’ he tries hard to portray, there is a warmth, playfulness and overwhelming sense of trustworthiness that belies it. If you’re out to have a great time, you won’t leave a Peter Powers’ show disappointed! Whilst his volunteers live out their wildest fantasies or experience their worst fears, the audience is thoroughly entertained as they indulge themselves in this bittersweet adventure!

AMSLEY TOWING & SALVAGE

Phone: 0409 306 681

Peter says ‘Australia is my favourite place to perform, the people here are mad, outrageous and push themselves to the edge…thus providing great entertainment like nothing else!’ As well as displaying his skillful stagecraft in venues around the world, Peter Powers has starred in and presented 60 of his own television shows in five different countries. These have been broadcast in more than 30 countries worldwide. He writes and creates unique formats for broadcast and devotes much time to his pursuit of knowledge and practice in the field of hypnosis for selfimprovement, behavioral modification, extraordinary perception, altered states of consciousness and the control of chronic pain. For just a short while, Peter Powers invites the participants to escape the drudgery and woes of the world to be treated to a wonderful state of bliss, fantasy and ultimate relaxation of both the body and mind while the audience enjoys a night of hilarious entertainment with jaw-aching laughter. Peter Powers – ‘a roller coast ride of an unforgettable journey of great fun and unbelievable adventure boarding on the ridiculous’…. catch Peter Powers as he converts even the most skeptic observer. Catch Peter Powers at Lithgow Workers on Friday 16th of November at 8:30pm.

Owner Sean Prendergast said: ``There’s nothing better than a relaxed natter over a drink with family and friends. We want to make that pastime as affordable as possible for the locals who are so loyal to us.’’ Locals deal: 10 per cent discount on any items sold at the cellar door.

ARMISTICE 1918-2018 NSW REMEMBERS

The Mayor, Councillor Ray Thompson, is responding to a request from the Minister for Veterans Affairs, The Honourable David Elliott, MP, for local communities across Australia to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice that marks the end of The Great War.

The Mayor would like to encourage all members of the community to stop and pause for reflection at 11am on Sunday, 11 November, for one minute, to remember our veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to express gratitude for the peace and prosperity that we enjoy today. It was at 11am on 11 November 1918, that the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. Specific branding has been produced, called the NSW Remembers Armistice logo, (as shown below) can be utilised throughout the community to promote and commemorate Armistice. The logo and branding guidelines are available for download via this link: www. centenaryofanzac.nsw.gov.au/armistice “It would be great to see members of the community whether attending a commemoration, walking down the street, listening to the radio or watching television, on public transport or in shopping centres, to come to a standstill at 11am and remember our fallen”, said Mayor Thompson.

LITHGOW DISTRICT CAR CLUB SAYS THANK YOU

The Lithgow District Car Club,formed in March 1955,would like to take this opportunity to thank the NSW Government, Paul Toole MP,Jan Hudson,Matthew Johnson,Graham Faulkner and Mayor Ray Thompson for a $50,000 grant to carry out much needed repairs to the access road to the Yvonne Martyn Memorial Motorsport Park.

The grant through the Stronger Country Communities Fund and administered by Lithgow City Council will help the car club open the Motorsport Park for competition and Driver Training early next year. Lithgow District Car Club has been actively working on a new hillclimb venue since the famous 40 Bends Hillclimb fell foul to the very stringent noise pollution laws in 1974 and was forced to close. Moves to re-open the Hillclimb came in 1977 but failed due to strong objections from a nearby landowner after a mammoth fight by the car club.Mr Beach Thomas a Sydney solicitor and motorsport enthusiast plus the club’s

treasurer,Les Taylor,took up the challenge in 1983 and finally submitted a detailed application to re-establish the 40 Bends Hillclimb in 1989 but after three long hard years of negotiations and meetings with adjoining landowners the project was finally abandoned. In 1991,after investigating many prospective hillclimb venues,a site on the Old Boulder Road near Portland was decided upon and plans were initiated to lease the necessary land from the then Pacific Power company. Council permission for the exciting new motor sport park was granted in 1993 along with permission from the Environment Protection Authority,the Police Department and the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport but again problems arose when the landowners,the power generation company Pacific Power, underwent several name changes. These changes,added with ongoing procrastination over leasing terms of the land dragged on until March 1997 when Delta Electricity finally decided to sell the land to the car club but it was then learnt that the Goverment had cross leased the Power Station to three banks in the United States of America to help fund the 2000 Olympic Games. The battle continued to purchase the land with the sale finally coming to

fruition in September 2008 – exactly ten years ago. Almost 17,000 hours of voluntary labour has been expended on the Motor Sport Park since the purchase on projects including fully security fencing the land,removing many tonnes of rubbish,noxious weed eradication,fencing the habitat of the endangered Purple Copper Butterfly and many more ongoing tasks. Thank you to Lithgow City Council and the NSW Government for your much appreciated assistance and support of the Yvonne Martyn Memorial Motorsport Park.

PADLEY MEMORIAL RE-DEDICATION AND BOOKLAUNCH Three special events have been planned for 19th and 20th October to mark the centenary of the death in 1918 of “one of Lithgow’s best citizens”, James McMillan Padley.

Most residents will recall that Lithgow has a Padley Street and Hassans Walls Lookout has a Padley monument and a trig station named Padleys Pedestal. These are all named after James Padley. James arrived in Lithgow in early 1902 to form a partnership with Robert Bolton in a Main Street furniture shop. Bolton & Padley traded for a year until Bolton moved to the coast for his wife’s health. James Padley then ran the business as J. Padley & Co. Padley was a key figure in the development of the northern (railway) side of Main Street from Cook Street to Bridge Street. He was a foundation member of the Lithgow Progress Association and through this organisation had a

great impact on the development of community faciliities in Lithgow. James was the driving force in the Progress Association. He was personally involved in the distribution and planting of trees in Lithgow, the development of the Park (now Queen Elizabeth Park), swimming baths, recreation reserve, and cemetery. Padley’s greatest work was the development of Hassans Walls Reserve for residents and visitors to enjoy. Lookouts, walking tracks, fireplaces, shelter caves and a shelter pavilion were the result of his planning and physical exertion. James Padley died in the Lithgow Hospital on 20th October 1918, aged 57. The Mercury wrote, “It is safe to say he was one of Lithgow’s best citizens, a man whose life was unselfish, and who was a model of civic patriotism”. In 1930 the Padley Memorial Direction Dial was erected and dedicated at Hassans Walls Lookout. Sadly, it repeatedly became the target of vandals and the original plaque and its replacement were both destroyed. Three events have been planned to mark the centenary

of James Padley’s death — 1. The Lithgow City Council has restored the Padley Memorial. The work was done by Lee Blaker of Hard Rock Memorials. 2. The Padley Memorial will be re-dedicated at a ceremony at Hassans Walls Lookout on the morning of Saturday 20th October. 3. A new book, “Padley of the Pedestal ~ James McMillan Padley”, has been written by Keith Painter, who last year produced a book about Hassans Walls. The new book was printed in Lithgow by Industrial Printing. “Padley of the Pedestal” will be launched at 3pm Friday 19th October at the Lithgow Library. The author will give an illustrated talk on highlights from his research. The booklaunch will be performed by descendants of James Padley’s brother George (the only one of the seven Padley siblings who had children). Signed copies will be available after the launch for $40. The author Keith Painter can be contacted at greatguides@ mountainmistbooks.com.
