To mark International Youth Day, headspace Lithgow staff opened their doors to the key stakeholders and young people of the community who advocated to bring the service to town.

Since opening for service at the end of June, headspace Lithgow staff have met with almost 50 young people – providing general and mental health services, education and employment support and drug and alcohol support.

“The community will be very pleased and comforted to know that Lithgow’s headspace is now up and running. You cannot underestimate the importance of a service like this. It lets our youth know that they are not alone and that there are people they can turn to when help is needed. This service will make a real difference to the lives of young people in the district.” said Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee. “There is high demand for youth mental health services across Australia and Lithgow is no exception. With this local service, we hope to meet the growing demand for young people, their families and friends,” said CEO of headspace National, Jason Trethowan

Dear Editor, The NSW Government’s backflip on the Emergency Services levy hike imposed on Lithgow Council and other local government areas is not good news. The $108,000 increase which was hidden from the Council and the public until after the State election, has merely been deferred for one year.  It will be reimposed next year.

It is worth noting that this financial year Lithgow Council ratepayers will still be required to pay over half a million dollars to the State Government for services that fall squarely within the responsibilities of the State Government. Stephen Lesslie Councillor

WINTER WONDERLAND HI LIGHTS THE NEED FOR DRIVER SAFETY The Snow blew in over the weekend, with decent sized falls in many areas of the region.

It was meant to be a market weekend in Portland and even the we still went ahead, there were only a small crowd of people interested in braving the cold. Driving around on Saturday and Sunday, I was amazed at how little regard some people have for the conditions on the road. There were plenty of snow searchers up from Sydney, causing traffic jams on many roads, even on Monday morning we got traffic and some cars sliding out on Sunny Corner Portland Road. I slowed my speeds on the few trips I did out and about, only to have people riding my back bumper bar and passing me as soon as they could. I wasn’t going 40 in a 100, I was doing 80, a speed I felt was OK in the conditions, however it seems other drivers would disagree. Hopefully the message of the rural road safety campaign in today’s paper sinks in to some of these people and our roads can be safe no matter what the conditions are.

NEW RESEARCH REVEALS RELAXED ATTITUDES OF NEW SOUTH WALES DRIVERS ON RURAL ROADS Australian Road Safety Foundation launches monthlong safety initiative that targets high-risk rural roads.

Today, The Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) officially launched ​Rural Road Safety Month in Bathurst, by releasing new research and remembering those who tragically lost their lives on regional roads last year. With two thirds of road deaths occurring on regional roads, the ARSF has conducted new research which reveals one in three New South Wales drivers admit they are more likely to undertake risky behaviour on rural roads. As a powerful reminder of the fatal consequences when taking risks behind the wheel, more than 7​ 00 large yellow flowers were laid in memory of every life lost on rural roads last year. The solemn installation comes as the research report shows that not even having children in the car is a deterrent for dangerous driving behaviour on rural roads. ARSF Founder and CEO Russell White urged Australians - both regional and city based - to take ownership for their role in reducing the rural road toll. “While there are a number of factors that contribute to the regional road toll, it’s everyday Australians that hold the key to safer roads,” Mr White said. “The research has told us that New South Wales drivers are taking risks on rural roads because they’re either less likely to get caught or perceive there to be fewer dangers. “We will continue to see a significant and unnecessary loss of life on regional roads until we make a collective effort to shift this mentality so that safety is front of mind for all road users.” The ARSF research has also highlighted the disparity in attitudes and behaviours between rural and city drivers.

According to the data, rural residents in New South Wales are more likely than metro drivers to engage in dangerous behaviour on rural roads. In fact, rural drivers overtook their metro counterparts when it came to speeding, driving while fatigued and driving under the influence, with the most shocking statistic being that 1 in 3 rural drivers have driven under the influence of drugs or alcohol, compared to 22 per cent of metro drivers. However, the research also showed that one in three road users recognised that a shift in attitudes and behaviour would have the biggest impact on the road toll. “Despite making up only 16.5 per cent of the nation’s population, regional road deaths account for a staggering two in every three of the national toll. Since this same time last year, the New South Wales has seen a 10% increase in rural casualties,” Mr White said. “Acknowledging that everyday road users have a personal responsibility is the first step and it’s our hope that Rural Road Safety Month will encourage drivers to choose road safety and turn this sentiment into real action.” Following community support of last year’s inaugural Rural Road Safety Week, the initiative has been extended to a month-long campaign from August 1 to 31, with the ARSF imploring locals to choose road safety and take ownership for their role in reducing the regional road toll. Backed by the Australian Government and long-time sponsor Suncorp, businesses, community groups and individuals are encouraged to choose road safety and get involved by hosting a local awareness raising event. The ARSF research was conducted by a third-party research company, Pure Profile, and was an online survey of more than 1,000 licenced Australians, nationally representative by gender, age and location.

SAFETY IMPROVEMENT WORKS – LAKE WALLACE, WALLERAWANG Works will commence shortly on traffic alterations to Lake Wallace, Wallerawang which will see some areas with restricted access.

As part of ongoing discussions with the Roads and Maritime Services and the Department of Education, Lithgow City Council has become aware of safety concerns within the Lake Wallace site, directly adjacent to Wallerawang Public School. During peak pick-up and drop-off times, the area directly opposite the school becomes congested with pedestrians and vehicles. Combined with restricted site distances, the safety of children and their parents is of great concern to Council. Hence, in the week commencing 12 August, Council will be installing a number of concrete blocks to restrict vehicular access to the area directly opposite Wallerawang Public School. While pedestrian access will be maintained, vehicle access will be restricted to ensure the safety of children and their parents crossing Barton Avenue during peak periods. Aside from these measures, Council engineers are proposing more permanent solutions to this matter. Additional parking areas are being considered within Lake Wallace. Any future works will be subject to consultation between Council, Department of Education, RMS and Energy Australia (who own the site). It is requested that all users of Lake Wallace, particularly those who pick up and drop off children to Wallerawang Public School, respect the imposed restrictions for the safety of all pedestrians.

Your Country Your Voice HEADSPACE OPENS ITS DOORS IN LITHGOW To mark International Youth Day, headspace Lithgow staff officially opened its doors on Monday to the key stakeholders and young people of the community who fought hard to bring the service to town. Since opening for service at the end of June, headspace Lithgow staff have met with almost 50 young people – providing general and mental health services, education and employment support and drug and alcohol support. It was great to be a part of the official opening and I know the community is extremely pleased and comforted to know Lithgow’s headspace is now up and running. I am a huge supporter of mental health services and we lobbied hard with the Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, to secure over $1 million to ensure the service opened in Lithgow. You cannot underestimate the importance of a service like this. It lets our youth know they are not alone and there are people they can turn to when help is needed. This service will make a real difference to the lives of young people in the district. CEO of Wentworth Healthcare, Lizz Reay told me the opening of headspace Lithgow was the culmination of effective collaboration between all levels of government with the local community and stakeholders. "We are proud to be part of this and look forward to joining other stakeholders to celebrate this achievement," she mentioned. Pictured with Aunty Helen and Halie Atkins from Lithgow High School

A FOCUS ON ROAD SAFETY

Last week, I joined Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack and State Member for Bathurst, Paul Toole to launch Rural Road Safety Month at the National Motor Racing Museum in Bathurst. NSW motorists are more likely to crash on country roads, which is the sobering message of this month’s Rural Road Safety Month with drivers urged to rethink their driving habits.

RUNS ON THE BOARD ✓ $1.06 million for headspace services in Lithgow ✓ MRI licence for Lithgow Hospital ✓ $1 million to Lithgow through the Drought Communities Programme ✓ $1.24 million for the extension of Three Tree Lodge

Of the 223 people killed in road crashes in NSW so far this year, 147 were on country roads – which is five more than the same time last year.

✓ $8 million to investigate fast rail for the Central West ✓ 12 new mobile phone sites bringing the total for the Calare electorate to 37 new sites

During the launch, I heard the tragic story of one local family’s loss, from a very brave Tanika Pintos.

✓ $480,000 towards renovations and upgrades at the Wallerawang Community & Sports Club

✓ $1.5 million towards Stage 1 of the Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway project

In 2016, her only brother was travelling with two mates home from a hunting trip. Sadly, the driver fell asleep and hit a tree. All three young men died instantly.

✓ $10,828 for lighting and security upgrades at the Portland Golf Club

It is a story which can be avoided. It’s is always better to take a break and get home late rather than not making it home at all. When you are on a regional road, or any road for that matter, remember to always choose road safety.

✓ $60,000 for upgrades at Marjorie Jackson Oval

In small country communities, it’s not uncommon for first responders who arrive at a crash and the medical teams who try to save the lives of the drivers and passengers to know the victims. Too often, people think it’s okay for them to quickly check a text, to drive faster than the speed limit because they know the road or they get behind the wheel when they’re tired. It’s not.

✓ $4,570 for iPads for the Lithgow Information and Neighbourhood Centre ✓ $9,963 for the Wallerawang Men’s Shed to carry out an electrical upgrade and purchase new tools ✓ Medicare guaranteed by law ✓ Instant Asset Write Off for Lithgow’s small businesses ✓ The real Gonski funding – every school in the Lithgow area gets a funding boost

The message is clear: don’t drive tired. Don’t text while driving. Definitely don’t drive while under the influence. And please wear your seatbelt no matter what.

STRONGER COMMUNITIES GRANT PROGRAM OPENS Expressions of Interest applications are currently open for Round 5 of the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities Program, closing 5pm Friday, 6 September. With Tanika Pintos during the launch

$5.6 MILLION IN FUNDING TO EXPAND THE NDIS In some great news for NDIS providers, $5.6 million to help businesses transition to NDIS through the Transition Assistance Funding initiative has been announced this week. Through this initiative, 280 organisations will receive grants of up to $20,000 each to access advice and professional services to develop their capabilities to effectively operate in the NDIS market. Providers can use the funding for tailored business advice, software upgrades and other one-on-one support which will help them transition to the consumer driven model of the NDIS. An additional 90,000 full-time equivalent employees are required to meet the demand for NDIS services by 2023, which is why we are investing in programs which support providers to transition and develop their workforces.

Each electorate has a total funding of up to $150,000 which can be allocated to a maximum of 20 small capital projects, which can range from upgrading the local community hall or sporting facility, building new bike paths, or providing essential equipment for the local SES. The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs, with the minimum grant amount being $2,500 and the maximum $20,000. Expression of Interest applications will be assessed by a Community Consultation Committee and then nominated applicants will be invited to apply. Please note you can only submit a formal application if you have been invited to apply.

Hi

With arctic conditions continuing, low temperatures continue to cause icy conditions on many roads within the Blue Mountains and the Central West. Winter weather is unpredictable and there can be sudden drops in temperature. Road conditions can change quickly and driving on icy roads can be challenging - even for experienced motorists on the roads they know well. Lithgow City Council would like to urge motorists to take extra care when driving during winter by reducing speed and obeying warning signage, especially in icy conditions. Quick Checklist for Safe Motoring in icy conditions– •Obey speed advisory signs and be prepared to reduce speed in line with the conditions. If you do hit ice, travelling at a reduced speed will help you to maintain control of the vehicle and reduce the force of the impact if there’s a collision •Be alert for ice on the road particularly in shaded and low lying areas or during early hours of the morning. •Drive with your headlights on Council has commenced installing warning signage on roads known to be of concern. Such roads include Hassans Walls Road (Lithgow), Sunny Corner Road (Portland) and Rydal Hampton Road (Hampton). Again, Council urges ALL motorists to observe such signage and exhibit significant caution and consideration while travelling through marked areas.

Bathurst MP Paul Toole said 39 students, who relocated to Lithgow from across Australia and New Zealand to study at TAFE NSW, graduated with a Certificate III or IV in Outdoor Recreation. “The TAFE NSW courses provide students with handson skills to manage activities and supervise others as an outdoor guide or instructor,” Mr Toole said. “TAFE NSW has strong connections with a wide range of organisations and employers such as Outward Bound Australia and The Outdoor Education Group who are leaders in the industry, with many students undertaking work placements and traineeships. “It’s rewarding to hear that many of the students have gained ongoing employment at these organisations.

“TAFE NSW research suggests it’s the perfect time for the new graduates to be entering the outdoor recreation industry as employers have identified the need for workers with improved training options and skills sets such as tour guide accreditation.” TAFE NSW Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation student, Jessica Moresco from Melbourne, switched from being a Registered Nurse to pursuing a career in outdoor recreation. “I’ve always loved being outdoors and wanted to see where the course could take me,” Jessica said. “I initially studied a Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation and then continued with the Certificate IV while commencing work with the Outdoor Education Group. “I’ve been able to apply the hands-on skills I have learnt at TAFE NSW such as abseiling, rock climbing, canoeing and bush walking in my role as a group leader of school group camps and journey programs across Victoria. “The course has really set me up for a successful career doing a job I love.”

NEW SMART INFRASTRUCTURE REPORT WATER METER HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR ACTION state’s peak business INSTALLATION TO The organisation, the NSW Business Chamber, believes the 2019 COMMENCE Australian Infrastructure Audit

The rollout and installation of smart waters meters is due to commence 19 August 2019 with the first of the meters to be installed in the Oakey Park area and progressing west through Lithgow before moving onto Wallerawang, Lidsdale, Portland, Cullen Bullen, Rydal and Glen Davis. For the installation to occur Council’s Contractor will need to gain access to your water meter. The contractor will knock on the door and advise you that they are intending to complete the installation. The installation will require the water to be turned off, the old meter removed and the new meter installed. For simple installations this should take no more than 5-10 minutes. After the installation the contractor will run some water through a front tap, where one is easily accessible, to flush the line. After the installation residents may experience dirty or milky water and bursts/spitting of water which will pass quickly. This is a result of air in the line and is normal. There is no need for contractors to enter your home or for you to provide any personal or property details nor will the contractors ask for such information. The only details that may need to be provided is the location of your water meter should it be obscured or inaccessible. It is uncommon but some residents may notice a leak around the meter box/meter, if you notice a leak or experience any issues after the installation please contact Council on (02) 6354 9999. Council wishes to apologies for any inconvenience caused during this period. Should you require further information please contact Council’s Water and Wastewater Department of (02) 6354 9999

released by Infrastructure Australia shows much more needs to be done to cope with demands of a growing population.

“There’s no doubt improvements to transport, energy and communications networks are critical enablers of economic activity, however the current record levels of investment in infrastructure are barely enough to keep pace with rapid increases in demand and population growth,” said Western NSW Business Chamber Regional Manager Vicki Seccombe. “The Audit emphasizes the need not just to deliver on current infrastructure commitments, but to continue exploring new opportunities to improve connections and better serve growing cities and less well-connected regional areas,” Ms Seccombe said. “Smaller towns and regional communities have been helped by some applications of digital technologies, but they remain at significant disadvantage with unacceptably poor provision of transport, drinking water, telecoms and other essential services. “The Audit shows the NSW Government has been right to put focus on rural infrastructure, but shows the importance of turning those words into actions.

“As we all know, energy is rapidly becoming more expensive, with energy network costs a significant driver of rising business costs, and as Australia’s energy system modernises, and aging assets close and need replacement, policymakers need to embrace cost-effective solutions. The Report includes a word of warning over the growth in projects in excess of $1 billion and the strain it puts on government and industry capacity to procure, project manage and deliver effectively. This is a concern the Chamber has been highlighting for some time and which we have developed proposed solutions to address. “It is critical to the future success of the NSW economy that we train and recruit skilled people with the required project management and procurement expertise, as well as the ongoing need for enough trade skills to deliver the proposed record investment in infrastructure. “At a time of stagnating productivity and drought, the timely and effective delivery of new infrastructure in our cities and regions is one of the best ways to boost productivity and economic activity,” Vicki Seccombe said.

NATIONAL TRUST LITHGOW LAUNCHES THANK YOU PROGRAM

The Lithgow branch of The National Trust NSW today announced the launch of its Lithgow heritage recognition program. The Branch was encouraged by the widespread enthusiasm generated by the recent restoration of Moyne Farm Little Hartley by its owners, the Open Day celebration attracted over 500 people together with the re-dedication of its historic cemetery.

The local National Trust will commence recognising other property owners who take action to improve or preserve heritage features in their property. As Danny Whitty Chairman of the local group said “ Lithgow has a huge wealth of heritage properties some listed in the LEP some not; regardless of their formal recognition all these properties have a role to play as elements contributing to the heritage character of our city and towns, and we want to praise people who work to preserve this vital heritage character.” Under the program the local branch of the National Trust will accept nominations from both National Trust Members and members of the public identifying situations where a property owner is doing good work looking after their heritage property. Such work could range from a major undertaking like reroofing a heritage property through to minor works like the sensitive refencing of a heritage property or repainting. As Danny Whitty said, “Council needs to have programs to recognise and encourage the nurture of heritage, introducing our program we are seeking to find a low cost way of at least thanking the many people that are dedicated to preserving our heritage treasures”. The first award under this program has been made this week to Brad Inwood the owner of ‘Allawah’ a house at 107 Hartley Valley Road. Built in 1877 it was originally the Vale of Clywdd mine mangers house. In 2018 it was in an advanced state of decay when purchased by Inwood a Sydney based architect seeking to relocate his business. Despite its very poor state of repair Mr Inwood

recognised the heritage of the building and bought it to ultimately restore it as his home and office. As Mr Inwood said “this was an opportunity that wouldn’t be affordable down in Sydney, a chance to buy a property with beautiful heritage features that might be renovated to make a lovely place to live”. Since acquiring the property Mr Inwood has totally reroofed the property in a heritage sensitive style and it’s this initial action that caught the eye of the National Trust. With the property secure under a new roof the owner will now be able to progressively restore the inside of the house, wherever possible restoring the original features of the house. Announcing the first award under the program Ramsay Moodie the Trust committee member responsible for the administration of the program said “ Brad Inwood’s purchase of Allawah highlights the value opportunity that our regions wealth of heritage properties represent. We have a vast range of architectural style and some really old heritage gems both in town and across the region. These together with our natural heritage assets can be made a powerful tourist drawcard for our region.” The National trust is clear in its vision that heritage has to be more than heritage for heritage sake. It has to play a part in our future economy as we build jobs in a future where coal mining will inevitably be less important. As Danny Whitty said “we need to have jobs that will help with our transition from coal to a broader based economy. Only last month at our meeting we took a decision to make earlier starts in one day tours we operate, in order to encourage people from the other side of the curtain to stay for the weekend and not just come for the day”. In a recent ‘open house’ project the Trust drew a crowd of more than five hundred people to visit Moyne Farm in Kanimbla many of whom came from afar and spent the weekend in town or hereabouts. As Danny said “our Moyne Farm day was a great example of what we can do promoting heritage tourism in the region. Our next event is a one day bus tour looking at old road remnants where we expect to fill a 60 person coach as we did with the same tour that was booked out when we ran it last year.” The Thank You card being distributed also goes on to provide a summary of the breadth of the heritage offerings our region offers. As shown below it makes special mention of the potential the multiple levels of our heritage to add to the tourism potential of the region. Anybody seeking to draw the attention of the local branch of the National Trust to an example of a heritage property being lovingly worked on by its owner is invited to contact branch secretary Celia Ravesi at cerave1@ optusnet.com.au . Properties nominated in that way will automatically be considered for recognition under this new program and may be considered for other National Trust awards.

BUSH FIRE DANGER PERIOD STARTS EARLY The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) has declared that the start of the statutory Bush Fire Danger Period (BFDP) will commence on Sunday 1 September 2019 for the following local government areas:

•Bathurst Regional Council •Lithgow City Council •Oberon Council NSW RFS is reminding residents that fire permits are required during the Bush Fire Danger Period. “From the 1st September until the end of the Bush Fire Danger Period, people wishing to light a fire in the open

will require a permit, which are free and can be obtained from your local fire station or Fire Control Centre. Please request your fire permit several days before you plan to light the fire to allow time for the area to be inspected and the permit to be issued,” Inspector Mick Holland said. “When conditions are particularly bad, such as on days of Very High, Severe, Extreme or Catastrophic Fire Danger, the NSW RFS may declare a Total Fire Ban, prohibiting the lighting of any fire in the open, even if you have a fire permit.” On a day of Total Fire Ban the lighting of fires is prohibited. This includes cooking fires using incinerators and barbecues which burn solid fuel, such as wood or charcoal. Gas or electric barbecues are permitted under the following conditions: › They are on residential property within 20 metres of the house or dwelling › They are in a designated picnic area and the appliance is approved by Council, National Parks and Wildlife Services or State Forest › They are under the direct control of a responsible adult

NEWS

› The ground around a barbecue is cleared for 2 metres of all material which could burn › You have an immediate and continuous supply of water available. “We urge all residents in the Bathurst, Lithgow and Oberon area to be vigilant and extremely careful with fire during the Bush Fire Danger Period,” Inspector Holland said. “Never leave a fire unattended and if a fire does escape, it is essential to call Triple Zero (000) immediately so that emergency services can respond accordingly and minimise the damage.” “Every resident should have a Bush Fire Survival Plan so they know what to do on days of increased fire danger and can immediately put their plan into action if their home is threatened by fire.” For further information on how you can protect your property, or to download a Bush Fire Survival Plan, visit the NSW RFS website at www.rfs.nsw.gov.au or 1800 NSW RFS (1800 679 737). For information on current fires, download the NSW RFS Fires Near Me app to your phone or tablet.

Lithgow City Councillor Cassandra Coleman, NSW State President of ALGWA NSW said “Every time we visit a different location across this wonderful state, the executive and I always learn from the vast experiences.” “It helps you think of innovative ideas to bring back to our own individual Council for discussion”.

On the 11th of August a team from Portland’s own gym, ANT Fitness, took on the world’s biggest fun run in a testimony towards their effort and hard work of the past few months.

The team smashed their goals and some even ran their best times. Andrew said of the event “every year the City2Surf always delivers a fantastic atmosphere and an incredible race experience”. The iconic fun run had over 85,000 people participate in 2019, with the race split into 6 starting groups. This year’s fun run was the event’s 49th year, the ANT Fitness team are looking ahead towards the 50th year celebrations. Congratulations to the ANT Fitness team and all participants from the weekend.

The Intern, Friday 16th August on Prime7 at 8:30pm

This is such a great movie with wonderful heartfelt moments and a top notch cast starring Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Renee Russo and Adam Devine. A retired 70-year-old widower, Ben (De Niro), is bored with retired life. He applies to a be a senior intern at an online fashion retailer and gets the position. The founder of the company is Jules Ostin (Hathaway), a tireless, driven, demanding, dynamic workaholic. Ben is made her intern, but this is a nominal role - she doesn’t intend to give him work and it is just window dressing. However, Ben proves to be quite useful and, more than that, a source of support and wisdom.

REWARD YOUR LOVE OF NATURE LEARN DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY WITH $20K IN PRIZES LITERACY SKILLS The Nature Conservancy’s global IN YOUR OWN Photo Contest is on now and interest from Australia is huge! HOME

“Australia is punching above its weight this year in our global Photo Contest”, said TNC Australia director, Rich Gilmore. “At the halfway mark, only the USA and Brazil have entered more photos than Australia in our contest. On a per capita basis that makes Aussies easily the keenest nature photographers in the world.” After the first week, the most popular photo worldwide was also Australian - a shot of sunrise across Perth and the Swan River – the site of one of our shellfish reef restoration projects – entered by Sue Errington-Wood. The 2019 Photo Contest runs throughout August. As well as a grand prize, prizes will be awarded in September for six global categories as follows: Cities and Nature: connecting with nature where we live. Landscape: a sense of place with or without people. People and Nature: recreation, adventure, people enjoying the outdoors. Water: above, below, or in between. Wildlife: in the wild or in our backyard. People’s Choice: (winner chosen via public online vote). Prizes will also be given for the best Australian photos as judged by renowned South Australian nature photographer, Ben Goode. The total prize pool exceeds AUD$20,000 in value. “There’s still time for anyone with a passion for nature to dig out their best photos or, better still, get outdoors and take some new inspiring nature photos to enter into our contest”, added Gilmore.

Do you want to learn more about computers, the internet, tablets or smartphones in your own time, in your own home? Find out how at a free afternoon tea and information session at your local library.

Your local Lithgow, Portland and Wallerawang libraries will be holding sessions on how you can sign up to Be Connected and learn technology skills in your own home. In this informal afternoon tea setting you can enjoy a cuppa, a sandwich and a demonstration by library staff on signing up and learning from home in simple to follow steps.

Tracy Sorensen What: From Little Things, Big Things Grow – Workshop with Tracy Sorensen When: Saturday 17 August 2019, 10am – 1pm Where: Gang Gang Gallery, 206 Main Street, Lithgow How much: $50 to $60 More info: www.bluemountainswritersfestival.com.au

5:30pm - 6:30pm Wednesday Nights at Emora Park Landa Street, Bowenfels

In this workshop we will look at examples of how tiny details can be the starting point for creating meaningful worlds. Sometimes it’s the telling detail that opens a whole world. The chink of a bead curtain separating the hall from the dining room, a wooden salad bowl, a biro in a man’s pocket, shorts paired with long socks, the tiny Crazy Camel Train toys found in the bottom of Kellogs Cornflakes packets in 1969 … these are just some of the tiny concrete details that were woven into my novel, The Lucky Galah (Picador, 2018). In this workshop, there will be plenty of time for discussion, writing exercises and giving and receiving feedback.

Tracy Sorensen is a novelist, freelance journalist, and video maker based in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. Her novel, The Lucky Galah (Picador 2018), was longlisted for the 2018 Independent Booksellers Award and shortlisted for the Readings Prize for new Australian fiction.

NEW ERA MIDWEST CUP GRAND FINAL

SPORT

From a typical rugby league grand final contest CSU emerged as this year’s New Era Midwest Cup champion. Story and Photos by John Fitzgerald

The Bathurst showdown between season-long rivals CSU and Orange Barbarians resulted in a 30-0 shut-out of Barbarians who were unable to match the overall class of the university team. CSU were too fast around the ground and completed their sets better than the Barbarians who were in a virtual catch-up mode from when CSU fullback Sam Groom went across for first points soon after the start. It took 20 minutes for the Barbarians to gauge the strength of their opponents but by then CSU had scored three tries and 18 points for a convincing halftime lead. Knowing what needed to be done and then translating that into action was the task Orange had to confront against a smothering brick wall defence. Even with an extra player after Kris Kennedy’s sinbinning for a professional foul in the red zone the Barbarians were unable to match the students and still gave up another three tries in the second half. Barbarians’ tackling was powerful once they hit top gear but injuries were disruptive, and the students’ defence had just as much venom typical of any grand final. CSU’s Callum Flanagan and skipper Billy Dickinson were the two best individual players on the field, Flanagan taking the man-of-the-match award after scoring two tries in a good all-round performance. Ben Gosper, Mitchell Britt and Jake Kelly who were mainstays for the Barbarians throughout the season were kept under tight surveillance and allowed no latitude by university’s strong defence which in turn stifled Orange’s overall attack. Major sponsor New Era Total’s Annika Kowalski presented the New Era Cup and individual player awards at the completion of the game.
