Christmas spirit shines as we say goodbye to a rollercoaster year

W

e find ourselv es a t the end of another year, looking back on the ups and do wns of wha t, as usual, has been a rollercoaster year. It has been a signific ant news year, dominated by the F ederal Elec tion and an historic chan ge of g overnment, w ith T ony Abbot t elec ted the country’s newest Prime Minister. Locally we saw Jo Haylen become one of Marrickville’s y oungest ev er Ma yors, and there is li ttle doubt tha t she has made an immedia te mark as a proactive, keen representative. When elected earlier this year, Cr Haylen said: “I love this place. I lo ve that on any given day there’s a queue up the st reet for pork rolls on Illawarra R d, or the mac aroons a t the H ellenic Bakery. I love the procession through the streets at Greek E aster, and the blue neon c ross on to p of St Bridg ets. But most of all I lo ve that this is a place where people come – f rom all o ver the world – to make a life for themselves and live out their dreams.” In that speech she summed up the importance of community and at this time of the year, spirit within the communi ty shoul d and is a t a grea t high point. It has been fan tastic to see so man y smilin g faces around Marrickv ille as the Christmas season and holida ys approach, and I am sure most of us are looking forward to a little break.

Don’t let your Christmas holidays end in a family tragedy

BASIL NAIMET @ICWJournalist

T

his time of the y ear brin gs w ith it joy, peace and a spiri t of g ood will. S adly though i t c an also bring tragedy. With school holida ys fast approachin g and man y young chil dren out and about enjoying their holida ys, Kidsafe and NRMA Insurance are ur ging paren ts to supervise their children closely, especially when around cars. A sur vey of 500 NS W paren ts was conducted in May this year by Pure Profile Research that found 90 per cen t believed driveway safety is an importan t issue. Disturbingly 70 per cen t think the w orst is likely to happen in their own driveway. Kidsafe NSW Executive Officer Christine Erskine said this time of y ear pro vides a timely reminder that road safety is critical and chil dren are espec ially v ulnerable

Do not let your children play near cars. around cars. “Toddlers and y oung school chil dren move quickly and ha ve no real sense of danger, t herefore they c ould be in the path of a mo ving vehicle quite suddenly,” Ms Erskine said.

According t o a r eport b y t he B ureau o f Infrastructure, Transport and R egional Economics en titled Child Pede strian Safety: Driveway deaths and low-speed vehicle r un- overs, A ustralia 2001- 2010, on a verage na tionally, sev en chil dren

are killed each y ear and 60 are seriously injured after bein g hi t or r un o ver b y a motor vehicle at home. Consequently, Ms Erskine stron gly recommends parents watch where their children play closely. “Parents should tr y and find a separa te space for chil dren to pla y and closely supervise them at all times, especially if a vehicle is being moved,” she said. “The festi ve season is a lo vely time for families to all be tog ether and w e wan t to help a void the w orst happenin g,” Ms Erskine added. Kidsafe and NRMA Insurance recommend the following tips to keep children safe this holiday period: • Always supervise children whenever a vehicle is to be moved – hold their hands or hold them close to keep them safe; • If y ou’re the only adult around and need to mo ve a v ehicle, even just a small distance, put chil dren sec urely in the vehicle with you while you move it; • Ensure children play in safer areas away from the driveway and cars; • Consider installing or purchasin g a vehicle w ith a rev ersing c amera. These are not fail proof but w ill certainly help in difficult situations where v isibility is lo w or inhibited.

Parents are being reminded not to let their children play near cars or driveways

News in Numbers NSW Ambulance have launched an emotional anti-violence campaign highlighting the human side of the state’s paramedics who are coming under increasingly more frequent incidents of physical and verbal abuse.

133

incidents By the end of 2012, 89 incidents saw paramedics assaulted or abused. With two weeks to go in 2013, that figure stands at 133 separate incidents.

Minister Gay said last year 62 people died and 1,959 people were injured on our roads in fatigue related crashes.

1,959 injured

“Last year there were more deaths due to people driving tired than drink driving. It’s time to bring driving tired into the road safety spotlight and that’s what this campaign is about.”

Minister for Roads Duncan Gay has launched a new road safety campaign, Don’t Trust Your Tired Self, which highlights the serious risks of driving tired. “Many drivers aren’t aware how being tired can affect their driving,” Minister Gay said. “It’s one of the top three killers on NSW roads, along with speeding and drink driving. “Crashes due to tiredness are also twice as likely to be fatal than other crashes. You can’t brake while you’re asleep. “You might be a good driver, but your tired self isn’t. Do not trust them behind the wheel.”

NSW Ambulance Chief Executive Ray Creen said “If You Hurt a Paramedic” shows the “two sides” of paramedics by placing powerful images prominently in licensed venues. “Paramedics are highly trained clinicians who are visible and prominent members of our community but some people see them only as ‘uniforms’, not individuals working to make a difference,” he said. “We are launching this campaign at start of the so-called ‘silly season’, the time of year we are called to help increasing amounts of people affected by alcohol and drugs, because it’s often the most dangerous situations when we’re hurt by those we’re trying to help.”

ou know the feeling; you’ve come home after a long day’s work, feeling tired, too tired to start cooking. Y ou dial the nearest piz za shop and place your order. You wait for 90 minutes for the pizza to arrive, open up the box to a cold and soggy pizza. When you finish eating, it leaves you with a g reasy and bloated feeling, with a g ut full of re gret... for far too long, home-delivered pizza has come at a compromise and you know things won’t change. Until now with Black Market Pizza. Imagine a delivery-only pizzeria offering pizzas bursting with r ich a nd ju icy toppings on a t hin a nd a lways c rispy bases. The difference between having your pizza delivered still fresh is in the length of time the pizza is cooked. Black Market Pizza slow cook the pizza. When it is cooked quickly and placed in the box, the heat comes off it quickly and is retained in the box, which makes the pizza soggy. All of Black Market Pizza’s are hand-made using the finest Italian flour, tomato and cheeses. They use only premium quality t oppings l ike double smo ked le g h am, a ir d ried salami, locally- sourced king prawns and market- fresh vegetables. The BMP Supreme is a c rowd favourite. It’s stacked high with double s moked le g h am, a ir- dried D anish s alami, with the right balance of fresh vegetables and topped with mouth-watering Mozzarella.

AQUARIUS JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

The positive Sun/Neptune hook-up makes for a delightful Christmas Day for festive Leos. The more you roll up your sleeves and help out, the better you’ll feel. Putting others first is the key to holiday happiness. Friday is a fabulous da y to draw up your goals and dreams for 2014. Include a plan for healthy eating and regular exercise.

PISCES FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

It will be a magic al Christmas for many festive Fish, as the Sun/ Neptune connec tion fa vours compassion, c reativity, con templation, meditation, prayer, delicious daydreams, spiritual insights and lashings of romance. An ol d f riendship may feel as if i t’s going backwards, but it’s just entering a brand new phase.

LEO JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

Spend some quiet time on your own, before the Christmas madness really begins. If y ou’re still buy ing presents, look for gifts that stimulate the imagination. The Mars/Uranus opposition increases your rebellious, unpredictable side so it should be an interesting Xmas Day! Be mindful of what you say too.

Have y ou still g ot a heap of shoppin g to do ? I t’s time for resourceful Rams to grab last -minute gifts tha t are g orgeous and practical. Christmas Day looks somewhat chaotic though as Mars (your ruling planet) and Uranus oppose each other . You’ll be in reckless Aries mode but, if you stir up fractious family members, you could end up with more on your plate than you bargained for!

December 23 to December 29 astrology predictions

TAURUS APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

Cooperation and team work a re hi ghlighted, so mak e sure y ou include family and f riends in y our festi ve prepara tions. Share the jobs around V irgo! D on’t labour under the delusion tha t you c an handle everything on y our own. With Venus in retrograde motion, be extra careful in your dealings with children, teenagers and friends.

LIBRA SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

Luxury- loving Librans, if you spend more than you can comfortably afford this Christmas, you’ll just end up w ith a heap of debt in the New Y ear. You don’t have to go overboard in order to have a good time. Plus try to control your urge to splurge on food and drink on Christmas Day. If you pace yourself, then you and your digestive system will enjoy Boxing Day and beyond.

SCORPIO OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

Christmas Day finds most Taureans in a terrifically festive mood, as you let your hair down and enjoy the Yuletide revelry. But, if you eat and drink too much, y ou’ll be a gr umpy Bull on B oxing Day! With Venus in retrograde motion un til February 1 i t’s not a g ood time to spend up big at the New Year sales, as you’re likely to over-spend.

Avoid g etting too stressed this Christmas S corpio. A cool and methodical approach is the best way to handle festive preparations and family celebrations. When in doubt, just keep calm and carry on! With Jupiter journeying through your aspirations zone, make your goals for 2014 as big and bold as possible.

GEMINI MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

Mercury, your ruling planet, shifts in to Capricorn from December 24 through until January 12 which will stabilise your mercurial mind. If you methodically tick off the to-do list, then you’ll power through preparations without the usual distrac tions. You’ll soon be in the mood to have some serious festive fun!

Sociable Sagittarians love Yuletide celebrations with the accompanying eating, drinking, dancing and partying. But make sure you’re pullin g y our w eight w ith prepara tions and cleanin g up otherwise you’ll be in the bad books on Boxing Day. Too much enthusiasm at the New Year sales could see you deep in debt in 2014.

CANCER JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

With Mars in your home zone opposing disruptive Uranus, there are bound to be some upsets on Christmas Da y. Anything from a burnt meal to a domestic disagreemen t. Stay cool C ancer, and k eep things in perspective. Heed Quentin Crisp: Treat all disasters as if they were trivialities, but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster.

Mercury moves through your sign from December 24 to January 12 when you’ll be at your rational, reasonable and rigorous best. But your perfectly thought-out plans and prepara tions are likely to be turned upside-down on Christmas Da y, as impulsi ve Mars and unpredictable Uranus create havoc in your family zone.

adding

colour to your wardrobe is a great resolution for the new year

168ICDFIL

I don’t normally take a lot of time thinking of a New Year’s resolution – I nev er m ake g oals. I a m not a g oal or ientated person (although some say that I should be) because I hate that feeling of failure when I don’t reach my goals in time. To me, making a New Year’s resolution is the same as making a goal – you are setting yourself up for failure. I have always had the same kind of resolutions, like ‘learn to cook’, ‘buy a new c ar’ or ‘get fit’, which are pretty boring and dare I say it, the standard. And yes, you guessed it, I still eat two-minute noodles for every meal, I am still driving my 1998 bomb and I prefer to wear heels over runners. At the beginning of 2013, whilst everyone was talking about their special New Year’s resolutions and how they were going to get t here, I w as s itting a lone, f rustrated t hat t hey d idn’t realise t heir re solutions w ere not on ly l ikely t o f ail bu t t hat they probably wouldn’t remember them anyway. Whether I was peer-pressured into it or was feeling a little left out, I am not sure, but I did end up with a resolution for 2013 – it was easy, different and something I knew I would love. At the time, I w as living out of a w ardrobe made entirely of black, white, the odd grey item and denim jeans: boring. Getting ready every morning was simple and easy but it was the same day in and day out so, my New Year’s resolution gave me the option to change it up. I de cided t hat 20 13 w as t he y ear I w as g oing t o ad d c olour to my w ardrobe. It m ay s eem e asy but I h ad to c hange a l ot of things about myself. For example, whenever I w ould walk into a shop , I w ould make a b eeline for t he wh ite tops, sk ipping over any colours without even thinking – I had to retrain myself how to shop. I chose to begin by buying blue items and once I was comfortable there, I moved from colour to colour. Shopping was hard but deciding wh ich colours go w ith what was harder. A y ear on, I s till l ove t o w ear a wh ite t op bu t m y w ardrobe i s no w colourful. Although I a m y et t o m ake a re solution f or 20 14, I w ill b e going for something fashion related – I might even try to make 2014 the year I swap earrings for necklaces!

River of creativity hasn’t dried up for Renee Geyer

S

he ma y ha ve recen tly celebrated four decades in the music industry but soul queen Renee G eyer still approaches her w ork w ith the same enthusiasm and passion as when she started out. SHANNON COCHRANE

The legendary performer will finish 2013, her 40th year as a musician, with her ritual end-of-year concert at The Basement in S ydney on Sunda y, December 29 and Monday, December 30. While man y music ians w ith lon gstanding careers eventually end up resting on their laurels, G eyer has spen t the last year in a burst of c reativity, recording and releasing her latest album ‘Swing’. As the ti tle sugg ests, ‘ Swing’ is G eyer’s take on classic big band music f rom the 40’s and 50 ’s and although the track list features m any w ell- covered j azz s tandards, the album is anything but unoriginal. Rather than jumpin g out and recor ding the album for the sak e of i t, G eyer chose to hol d back and w ork with her band to create unique music al arran gements for well- known son gs so tha t her v ersions would be different from previous covers. “I didn’t know how it would be received and I think a lot of people who don’t know me might have looked at the set list and not been interested because it is a generic set list, the son gs ha ve been done b y

many, man y people, which is wh y I picked them… I wan ted to sho w how a great song can be reinterpreted again and again,” Geyer said. Fortunately, the har d w ork paid off and ‘Swing’ debuted a t number 22 in the national ARIA charts. But despi te

the album’s positive reception, G eyer won’t spend lon g rev elling in her success – she is already working on her next release. “I’m working on it already but I never talk about i t until it’s done bec ause it changes… the minute I talk about i t, it

goes to another thing,” she said. Throughout her c areer, G eyer has released 25 albums and coun tless hi ts including ‘Restless Years’, ‘D o You Know What I M ean’, ‘Say I L ove You’ and ‘I C an Feel The Fire’, becoming one of Australia’s most prominent female singers. Her love of music began when she was young, when she pla yed on her school friends’ music al equipmen t and mo ved between bands, w orking out her o wn style before pursuing it professionally. “I always knew I was good at it [music] but I never intended it to be a c areer until I started doin g i t and people w ere really into it, I realised this is somethin g I could actually make a c areer of. That happened gradually,” Geyer said. While G eyer has mastered man y different g enres, her music has alwa ys been inspired by her love of rhythm and blues, with Aretha F ranklin bein g one of the artists she admires most. “I don’t tak e her recor ds out and listen to them unless i t’s a spec ial occ asion because i f y ou l isten t o s omeone t oo much, it rubs off on y ou and y ou end up trying to sound lik e them, and I nev er want tha t to happen… but I’ ve alwa ys been interested in black music, it’s always been my favourite,” Geyer said. And it seems tha t Geyer has no plans to leave her music days behind her. “I’m nev er o ver music. I’ m o ver ev erything else and the getting ready and the logistics of it – until I get on stage and the music starts, that brings me to life.”

BOOK

Australia’s history through the eyes of a travelling circus

Friday 20 December 2013 the inner city weekender

A

ustralia’s past is explored in Jackie French’s latest novel The R oad to Gundag ai, which follows the life of a family circus. The Magnifico Family Circus inhabits its own strange, ethereal world, with a cast of bizarre performers on display. From the crippled heiress who masquerades as a beautiful mermaid, to the bearded lady who is pla yed b y a y oung man and the stereotypic al blind fortune teller, the Magnifico F amily Circus has all of the classic fixtures of a 20th cen tury carnival tale. But behind the scenes, when the curtain drops, each of the c ircus members ha ve their own unique personalities and histo ries as they tra vel far and w ide across the Australian countryside.

The Road to Gundagai is set in the midst of the Grea t D epression, a devasta ting period in history, and the book’s tone captures the reality of that era. This gripping tale is full of in trigue and detail, and w ill tak e adults back to the classic adv enture stories of their y outh while y ounger readers w ill enjo y the book’s fantastical magic and illusion. “This is the histor y of our na tion retold in fiction,” Jackie French said. “The ‘ adoption’ of indig enous chil dren by tra velling c ircuses, the ‘ cold readin g’ to tell fortunes, the susso c amps and farming cooperatives of the depression to help each other survive, even the skeleton in the house of horrors, are based on li ttle known events in our fascinating past.” Fans of Jackie French will also enjoy the references and connec tions to charac ters

from her tw o prev ious books in her acclaimed series The Matilda Saga. The Matilda Saga includes the no vels A Waltz for Matilda and The Girl from Snowy River, which w ere both w ell- received b y literary critics. A rev iewer in The Sat urday Age praised The Girl from Snowy River: “when I was 11 or 12, I would have read and reread it until it fell to bi ts. I t has ev erything: horses, poems, ghosts, heroism, war , the bush and a love story”. French is the newly chosen A ustralian Children’s L aureate for 2014- 15, which is a w ell deser ved honour recognisin g her long, prestigious history in writing. She has wri tten more than 140 fic tion and non-fiction books, has had a full-time writing c areer for 25 y ears and has w on over 60 a wards in A ustralia and in terna-

tionally. H er passions include histor y, the environment and the conser vation of wildlife and the planet. Suffering f rom dysle xia herself , F rench is a strong advocate of supporting children who have learning difficulties.

NATHAN TAYLOR TV News

Best New Talent Tim Dormer

We are closed from Thursday 19th December & reopen Monday 6th January

The best and worst of 2013 Well we’ve finally reached the last edition of the year and for the year’s final Chatter on the Box I’ve decided to run through some of the hits and misses of 2013… Best Australian Reality Show For the second straight year ‘Big Brother’ had me glued to my screen for 101 days of the year. This year’s series was better than last year with some fantastic personalities and some even cheekier tricks from the big man himself. Best Talent Show This was a hard one to judge this year considering I went off talent shows in 2013, but I must say the only one I did watch week to week was ‘The Voice’. The addition of Ricky Martin this year was genius and I look forward to seeing him return along with new coaches Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am. Best New Talent This one may surprise people but ‘Big Brother’ winner Tim Dormer was the best new face on TV this year. Tim was cruel, kind, funny, but most of all entertaining. He played the Big Brother game to perfection and caught the hearts of many. Best News Service Being an election year, it was hard to go past Sky News for providing the best news coverage of 2013. Sky News was there when all the big news was breaking and they were even the first to have an interview with Julia Gillard ahead of her leadership showdown with Kevin Rudd. The Worst of the Worst It was too hard to pick just one, so without explanation here are my worst shows of the year: ‘Australia’s Got Talent’, ‘Million Dollar Minute’, ‘The Mole’, ‘The Project’, ‘The Footy Show’, ‘Celebrity Splash’, ‘The Daily Edition’, ‘Slide Show’, ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘A League of Their Own’. Most Anticipation Show of 2014 Chris Lilley’s new show ‘Jonah’ will be incredible.

Casualties of trading The Newtown Jets are set to have plenty of new blood come next season BASIL NAIMET @ICWJournalist

T

here will be new blood in the Newtown Jets ne xt season, w ith a number of contracts left unrenew ed and pla yers opting to move to other clubs. Among the casualties of the season are Tinirau Arona w ho w ill t ransfer t o C ronulla, A dam Henry who is heading to the UK to the Bradford Bulls, Michael Ol dfield to the Catalan Drag ons in F rance, J ack B osden to Illa warra W estern Suburbs and J osh Ailaomai to St G eorgeIllawarra. Prolific tr y- scorers Na fe S eluini and H enare Wells have signed with the Burleigh Bears in the Queensland Cup whilst v eteran forward Khalid Deeb is set for retirement. Jets coach Greg Ma tterson said there were a number of promisin g pla yers who ha ve been involved in intensive pre-season training; training four days a week since early November. As the 2014 competi tion dra ws closer , the

Tinirau Arona is off to Cronulla.

The Jets are also c urrently active in the player trading market and w ill announce new signings early in the new year. Club director and major sponsor Terry Rowney said one of the most satisfactory aspects of this

off-season has been the extensive and effective review by the NRL of second-tier competi tions like the NSW Cup, with several of the Newtown club’s submissions to the NRL rev iew team being adopted. Among the reforms are stron ger links to NRL partnership clubs and assistance to further professionalise the competition.
