arrickville SES flood assistance crews were on standby near the Cooks River during heavy rains on Monday. Local controller Michael Carney said the Marrickville SES received 15 calls for help, mostly for roofi ng or fallen tree jobs but also to pump rain water out of a Dulwich Hill unit block’s basement car park. “We had a warning from the Bureau [of Meteorology] on Monday afternoon that the weather might be really bad after midnight,” Mr

Carney said. He said the SES also monitored low-lying areas near the Cooks River at Riverside Crescent, Illawarra Road, Wharf Street and Cahill Place in Marrickville and Bay Street at Tempe. “We had two crews or 16 members operational on a level two flood response. We took our flood boat as well, just in case we had flood issues,” he said. “During the day we actually had to have our flood technicians on stand-by as well.” Mr Carney expressed relief that a weather bureau warning for winds of up to 125km/hr had not eventuated and that only heavy rain

eventuated from the low pressure system. Th roughout the day from 7am until 9pm, Marrickville Council workers cleared small, localised flooding of roads. A Marrickville Council spokesman said staff attended 11 sites to clean out about 38 pits which had caused some flooding across the local government area. These included at Lord Street Newtown, Riverside Crescent Marrickville, Wardell Road Petersham, Carrington Road Tempe, Henry Lane and Henry Street, Bolton Street in St Peters, Victoria Road Marrickville and Bedford Street Camperdown.

TRADITIONAL TIMBER MERCHANTS

rom bushfi res to floods. Heat waves to cyclones. What on earth is happening with our weather? In the space of two weeks we’ve gone from one extreme to another. I remember a fortnight ago being awake until 2am unable to sleep because of soaring temperatures, feeling anxious about my electricity bill because I’d had the air conditioner running for three days straight. My husband and I cleared the gutters in preparation for bushfi res. Packed a box of our most important photos and got ready to go if the alert came through. It didn’t. Our house was safe but it seemed like the soaring temperatures would be here for a while. How wrong I was.

The Australia Day public holiday was a shocker. A complete and utter disaster for campers. Sure in Sydney it didn’t peak like the bureau thought it would but I tell you what, in the early hours of Tuesday morning the wind was howling and the rain was absolutely bucketing down. There was also plenty of localised flooding and roads cut off by trees. Like everyone else I swapped the fan for the umbrella and thought ‘what in the world is going on!’ Is it just me or does the extreme weather seem to be getting more extreme? Queensland seems to cop it even more than the other states but Melbourne like Sydney is often in the fi ring line. But if there is one constant through all the crazy weather it’s the dedication of

W

ell, that’s one way to get Tim’s jokes about prostate checks and female Asian doctors out of the news cycle quickly, isn’t it? Prime Minister Julia Gillard shocked the nation on Wednesday, announcing an election would be held on Saturday, September 14. That’s right – the usual six or seven weeks of campaigning will now be nearly eight months long. Don’t be fooled into thinking that announcing the date so early makes for a more stable year, or allows the focus to be on policies rather than political motives. If anything, it only prompts instability for the fi nal months of the Government’s term, with the use-by date now officially stamped. With a smile, Ms Gillard on Wednesday said her intention was “not to start the nation’s longest election campaign”. Sorry, PM, but you know the “politics” better than anyone, and starting the nation’s longest election campaign was exactly your intention. And in truth it’s a shame she won’t admit it, because it’s a pretty shrewd move. In calling the election so early, she has all but challenged Mr Abbott to prove to the electorate in eight months, not eight weeks, his leadership credentials. She’s challenged him to issue policies in detail, and opened him up to greater scrutiny, with the news cycle likely to turn a little slower during a campaign of such length. And in a week in which Mr Abbott received plenty of publicity for his “mini-campaign”, she one-upped him by making the big play while he was still working out his moves in the rehearsal studio. Bottom line: Ms Gillard was

the SES. No matter if it’s fi res or floods they are there every step of the way risking their lives to save ours. You don’t realise until you need them just how amazing they are. Between disasters they sit there idle ready and waiting but as soon as the call comes through they rally like nothing I’ve ever seen. They work all day, all night and never complain. They don’t ask for anything in return and never moan about being tired. Quite simply they are incredible. Without their help these disasters would be so much worse. So THANK YOU to the boys and girls in the orange suits. You are a shining example of what it means to be an Aussie – a mate helping a mate no matter what.

hoping to catch Mr Abbott off guard, which she did, and is hoping he remains one step behind through the long, arduous eight months ahead. But there is a problem in the above plan. What if Mr Abbott does prove his leadership credentials, does issue strong and clear policies, and does play as well on the main field as he did on the practice court? Surely that sends Ms Gillard into political oblivion, given where she currently sits in the polls and in public sentiment. Th is unprecedented move will also raise many questions, about how Parliament possibly proceeds as normal with an election date hanging over everyone’s heads. One really does wonder if it’s at all fair for a Prime Minister to play the game that Ms Gillard did this week. Labor will shrug it off by saying that it avoids speculation about the election date, and allows the real issues to be addressed. But the real story is that it’s an attempt to give the Prime Minister a fighting chance in a battle that most give her no hope of winning. Here at The Inner City Weekender, we are committed to delivering you the best possible coverage of this election. And from next week, we welcome Laura Jayes to our team. Laura, a political journalist with Sky News, will provide an incredible insight into this campaign, delivering us stories and opinion from the coalface in Canberra, and on the election trail. No news yet on if Tim Mathieson will accept our offer of a “Joke of the Week” column. Smile. Go on, smile. It’s going to be a rough, treacherous ride to September.

Dr Spencer, who has previously volunteered legal services at Marrickville Legal Centre, told the Weekender he used to live “right under the fl ight path” and is familiar with local concerns including aircraft noise and traffic congestion on Parramatta and Victoria roads. “I am standing for Grayndler to provide strong representation for our community on the day to day issues that matter,” Dr Spencer said. “I commute on public transport and have experienced issues that are isolated to our local area. “With a long-standing personal connection to our local area, as a former small-business owner and as a pro-bono legal advocate for the less fortunate in our community at Marrickville Legal Centre I have the skills, experience and determination to be an effective Liberal representative for our community.” Asked when he decided to become involved in federal politics and why, Dr Spencer said in 2007 the Australian

Our outstanding citizens Three residents have been recognised for their contribution to the community ocal mother and dedicated volunteer Joanna Souliotis was named Marrickville Council’s 2013 Citizen of the Year at Council’s Australia Day celebrations at Enmore Park on Saturday. The inaugural Senior Citizen of the Year was also announced with the title going to Bruce Livingstone, and Young Citizen of the Year awarded to Tina Zhou. Ms Souliotis is a tireless volunteer and community worker who has developed programs and initiatives for many of Marrickville’s diverse and sometimes vulnerable families. A single mother of three, Ms Souliotis has turned life’s obstacles into opportunities to improve the fate of others. She is an advocate for women and children who experience domestic violence and has worked with the Women’s Domestic Violence Court Assistance Scheme (WDVCAS) and Family Court to raise awareness of detrimental practices. Ms Souliotis’ volunteer work is as broad as it is generous. In 2005, she established the ‘Holiday Club’ – a space where parents who could not afford a holiday could relax and escape life’s pressures. Her Warren Road community newsletter ‘The Fly’ enlisted several unemployed young mothers in her neighbourhood, giving them important vocational skills. Marrickville’s fi rst Senior Citizen of the Year, Bruce Livingstone has been serving his community in various capacities all his life. His voluntary work includes many years in unpaid sports administration and church work. Post-retirement he

Tina Zhou, Council’s 2013 Young Citizen of the Year, is involved in a wide range of youth, humanitarian and social justice work. Late last year Tina represented Marrickville at the YMCA NSW Youth

Parliament, acting as the Shadow Minister for Juvenile Justice and Police. She is also a community liaison officer of the Marrickville Youth Council, and on the Premier’s Debating Team and volunteers in MP Carmel Tebbutt’s office.

Enmore Park was packed with people celebrating all that is great about Australia on Saturday.

arrickville Council’s 2013 Australia Day celebrations were a huge success with more than 15,000 people joining in the festivities at Enmore Park. The crowd enjoyed live entertainment from Marrickville youngsters, The Ukes of Today, the winners of the 2012 Break Competition at Marrickville Festival. International Zimbabwe star Chris Gudu and seven-piece extravaganza Righteous Voodoo brought the crowd to their feet with exciting performances throughout the evening. Indie artist Jack Carty and party band Jellybean Jam also took to the stage, while kids enjoyed a host of free activities, with the Circus Playground and

Marrickville’s Australia Day ambassador, award-winning actor John Wood, gave a rousing speech during the official ceremony and local Aboriginal elder, Alan Barnes spoke of the significance of Australia’s indigenous heritage during a special Welcome to Country. Marrickville Mayor Victor Macri said it was wonderful to see so many people pack Enmore Park to celebrate all that is great about being Australian. “Australia Day gives us an opportunity to celebrate living in one of the best countries in the world and reflect on all the wonderful opportunities we are given every day,” Cr Macri said.

Marrickville Police charged a 49-year-old driver for driving while his licence was suspended over the weekend. At 12.50pm Saturday, January 26, police stopped the 49-year-old driver on Sydenham Road, Marrickville for a random breath test that returned a negative result. Police conducted enquiries on the man’s licence, which revealed his licence was suspended due to fi ne default. At this time the man was issued a notice of suspension and informed by police he can not drive his vehicle. About 40 minutes later police sighted the man driving his vehicle down Sydenham Road. The driver was stopped and issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for driving while suspended. He will appear at Newtown Local Court on February 14.

Miller said of the award. Mr Miller, a Newtown reisident of 18 years, has watched society’s responses to cerebral palsy improve alongside medical advances, as his organisation evolved from its beginnings in 1945. It’s a topic close to Mr Miller’s heart after his own son, Christopher, was born prematurely at 26 weeks, barely as big as his hand. “As a culture, we’ve matured in a big way since I was a kid. We’re more tolerant of so many things these days. At school, kids can still be pretty cruel, so there’s still some work to be done,” he said.

New exhibition looks at South-Asian street art

Bess O’Malley has curated a new exhibition on at the Newsagency Gallery.

VANESSA WATSON

rt from the streets of Indonesia will be on display at Petersham’s Newsagency Gallery as part of the ‘Girl Gangs of Indonesia’ exhibition until February 30. Gallery owner and curator Bess O’Malley, who travelled to the south-east Asian nation in September 2012 to source the show’s artwork, said the exhibition comprises work by 16 female artists from the cities of Yogyakarta, Jakarta and Bandung. “The works range in style and medium, they are very feminine, some are quite dark, all are rather fascinating,” Ms O’Malley said.

A

Ms O’Malley, a Petersham resident, said she was inspired to develop the show after she staged an exhibition in June 2012, which featured only works by male artists from Yogyakarta. “I wanted a bit of balance for the girls. Yogyakarta is like a rock and roll town, it’s so cool. There are all these punks, sort of like Sydney in 1989. The street art is a huge feature… The streets of Yogyakarta and Bandung are littered with fantastic street art,” Ms O’Malley said. Proceeds from the gallery’s sales of arts and crafts by feminist punk collective Needle N’ Biotch will go towards women’s safe houses and telephone help lines for women in Jakarta. For more details exhibition visit www.newsagencygallery.com.au.

Photography competition now open to entries The third annual Marrickville Urban Photography Competition is open to photograhers of all ages until March 18. Images must in some way feature, reference or comment on the older attributes of the municipality’s built environment pre-1960. The council is specifically seeking contemporary perspectives on the layers of urban fabric around us. The subject matter must feature or comment on pre-1960 built fabric and broadly fit into this year’s National Trust Heritage Festival theme “Community Milestones”. The winner and runners up will be announced at Marrickville Town Hall on May 8 and the top 25 photos will be exhibited by Council. The exhibition will continue at the Marrickville Library in digital format for the following two weeks and an online exhibition of all appropriate submissions will be held on the council website for 12 months.

COUNCIL SNAPSHOT

Access Committee in need of new members Th is year the Marrickville Access Committee celebrates its 20th birthday as a formal advisory body of Marrickville Council. In the last few years the committee has looked at and advocated for more accessible public transport, worked to create an easier and more accessible footpath network and assisted on many other Council projects. The meetings also provide a way for council officers to receive direct input about policy, planning and service delivery issues on council programs, events and initiatives and how they may impact on the 16.2 per cent of local people who are living with a disability. Council is currently looking to expand the network of the Access Committee to enable a broad range of views to be heard. A selection and recruitment process is also under development and will be discussed at the meeting. People interested in access and disability inclusion issues are encouraged to attend the next committee meeting on Thursday, February 14 at 6pm at the Marrickville Council Administration Building. To RSVP contact 9335 2074.

espite the many groups they have to promote their industry, our winemakers are a pretty much independent and individualistic lot. So it was with interest I learned of a group in Victoria’s Rutherglen who’ve been successfully working together to promote not their industry and not their region, but just one wine they all make, Durif. And they’re quick to point out that they’ve been doing it virtually since the first Durif vines were planted at Rutherglen in 1908 by the forebears of today’s families behind the eight labels of the Durif vines, All Saints, Bullers, Campbells, Cofield, Morris, Rutherglen Estates, Scion Vineyard, and Stanton & Killeen. “And at the same time they’ve also been able to further develop their own individual house styles through exploring new viticultural and winemaking practices,” said Chairman of the Durif of Rutherglen Network, Colin Campbell. “And then bout 10 years ago we went a step further by establishing the Network to lift the profile of Durif amongst red wine lovers, and to win over new devotees.” For more information about Durifs of Rutherglen, email susie@campbellswines. com.au.

Azzurra Fitness Smaller classes, tailored training and a great community feel!

BUSINESS OF THE WEEK

zzurra Fitness classes are shaping bodies from across the inner west with the guidance of master trainer, Rob Charlwood. Under Mr Charlwood’s supervision, the Renwick Street personal fitness facility specialises in training small groups of 10 people or less, with the option of ‘women’s only’ classes each weekday morning from 9.30am. “We use a combination of functional

A

fitness sessions with boxing classes and boot camp to attain a broad spectrum of fitness and strength,” Mr Charlwood said. “Each of my indoor classes only have 10 people, boxing has 20 people and boot camp is unlimited. With only 10 in each fitness class, it’s more personalised – I can cater to everyone’s abilities.” As well as building the personal fitness of individuals, Mr Charlwood said he hoped to build a sense of community

amongst his clients. “We’ve tried to develop a community atmosphere. We hold social outings, so we might hold a barbecue here, then do a Cooks River run. “I think there’s more and more public awareness about obesity and heart disease. People understand more and more that fitness is one of the ways to achieve better health and even to reduce stress in our high pressure lives.”

Azzurra Fitness offers emergency services personnel a 20 per cent discount. “So for police, fi ries, ambulance, military and the SES after they’ve been working so hard,” Mr Charlwood said. For those looking for an image overhaul, he has also written a free e-book, The 12-Week Body Transformation, available at www.marrickvillefitness.com when you download a class timetable. Interested clients can try their fi rst session free!

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Friends and acquaintances are going to have a powerful influence on your future prospects and Uranus gives you added optimism and vitality. Your social life will increase in importance and obstacles that have irritated you on the work front will be swept away. Neptune encourages you to indulge in pampering yourself, however you need to take a responsible approach to all fi nancial affairs, so don’t let that extravagant streak lead you to far astray.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

You will have the urge to change your career or to simply demand recognition for past efforts. No matter how this ambitious phase manifests itself you can be sure that your prospects are considerably boosted from now on. A serious attitude is likely re: your relationships, as Neptune is making you feel rather suspicious about certain people and you may have a vague suspicion about a friend’s motives.

GEMINI

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

122ICD2792

You’ll discover inner resources that you never knew you had and this is the ideal time to open up and talk to others about fi nancial and family worries. Neptune is creating a lot of rumour mongering and back stabbing at work and you are best advised to keep to yourself and not get involved in anything that doesn’t feel right. If an old health complaint keeps flaring up it’s the right time to seek the advice of a professional.

Variety is the spice of life and unusual people or places will exert a powerful pull, therefore it’s time to indulge that adventurous streak with a crazy day out. If you have to deal with awkward, demanding children or even adults who insist on acting like children, you will be able to defuse the most troubling situations by the use of empathy while still maintaining a position of authority. The New Moon is the ideal time to focus on fi nances.

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

The planets are all heating up your love zone so expect conversations with your partner to be deep and intense. For couples wanting a family this is the ideal time to set plans in motion. Your energy may be rather low and it’s possible that you’ve been taking on too much just to show how impressive you can be. Are you sure you’re not going for the sympathy vote? It doesn’t really matter as the fact is you need rest so make sure you get some.

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

It’s the ideal time to fi ll your cupboards with healthy foods, to haul out your exercise gear, get a few early nights and give up negative habits. All this will work wonders for your energy levels. You are going to be a little too critical for your own good as you are likely to fi nd colleagues and neighbours being difficult to get on with. New projects at work will also be difficult to launch. On the home front this is the ideal time to replace a dishwasher.

HOROSCOPES by Francis A Bevan

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

It is going to be necessary to deal with difficult situations both at work and at home, however facing your feelings will allow you to move forward. If a separation is on the cards, make an extra effort to show your feelings. Women will be especially supportive so chase up old friends for love and support. The New Moon on the 10th falls in your party sector and you will feel an over whelming urge to kick up your heels.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

Th is is not a time to gamble on anything, you need to stick to the tried and tested and take a responsible attitude to everything you are dealing with. The males in your social circle are going to be passing on some useful tips so be as open minded as possible when in their company. Unexpected breakthroughs are likely on the home and family front and you will have the heaven sent chance to pour oil on any troubled family waters.

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

It’s the ideal time for you and your partner to review your fi nances, the secret of success lies in clarity so make sure you are aware of all the pros and cons in any fi nancial dealings. Speak up about property and domestic issues, but be constructive. The past may come back to haunt you or cause you embarrassment – perhaps you forgot to do something or you did something in an inefficient manner and this problem now reveals itself.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Your focus is on economic security and a cost cutting drive becomes your new obsession. Everyday expenses, health and education all come under the microscope. You might even decide to downsize your home. Th is is an ideal time to focus on getting fitter. There is no doubt that issues surrounding friendships and trust are very important, therefore you need to be as straightforward as possible.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Happy Birthday Aquarius! 2013 will see you climbing the ladder of success and other people looking to you for leadership. With Saturn in a difficult aspect to your sign you’re ready to confront any unfi nished business both personally and professionally even if this means having a few confrontations. The New Moon in your sign on the 10th sees you using your famous sense of humour to win friends and influence people.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

It’s all about you this month. Mars in your sign gives you a boost of confidence and it’s time to break old habits and take up new ventures. You are always there for everyone else and it’s time to start saying ‘no’ more often and to let yourself unwind. The travel bug is likely to bite so take yourself to your local travel agency and look through a few brochures. You are likely to be feeling emotionally drained and warn out so rest up.

Kidneys in danger yelonephritis is a type of bacterial urinary tract infection (UTI) that affects one or both kidneys. It can be serious because of the important function of the kidneys. The urinary tract is the body’s drainage system for removing wastes and excess water. It includes two kidneys, two ureters, a bladder and a urethra. The kidneys are located near the middle of the back, just below the rib cage, one on each side of the spine. Urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder through tubes called the ureters. The bladder stores urine until releasing it through urination. When the bladder empties, urine flows out of the body through a tube called the urethra at the bottom of the bladder. Bacteria can move to the kidneys from the bladder or can be carried through the bloodstream. If pyelonephritis isn’t treated straight away it can result in sepsis. A UTI in the bladder that does not move to the kidneys is called cystitis. People most at risk for pyelonephritis are those who have a UTI and those with a structural, or anatomic problem in the urinary tract. Urine normally flows only in one direction, from the kidneys to the bladder. However, the flow of urine may be blocked in people with a structural defect of the urinary tract, a kidney stone, or an

Who is the real loser? enlarged prostate. Urine can also back up, or reflux, into one or both kidneys. Th is is called vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), and it occurs when the valve mechanism that normally prevents backward flow of urine is not working properly. VUR is most commonly diagnosed during childhood. Most people with pyelonephritis do not have complications if appropriately treated with antibiotics. Occasionally, pyelonephritis may cause kidney scarring, which can lead to chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, and kidney failure. However, these problems usually occur in people with a structural problem in the urinary tract, kidney disease, or repeated episodes of pyelonephritis. Symptoms range from mild to severe, but include fever, chills or sweats, abdominal or back pain, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, dysuria (which is pain discomfort when you urinate or having a frequent urge to urinate). Though you may only present with a couple of these symptoms, these symptoms should not be ignored. If you have symptoms, see your GP right away. Acute pyelopnephritis is diagnosed by urine culture, blood tests and if required CT imaging and treated with intravenous antibiotics.

B

iggest Loser is nearly back! Viewers tuning in week after week can watch as people with severe obesity are routinely yelled at by weight obsessed trainers, exercised until they vomit, injured, weighed nearly naked on a giant scale, and seemingly taught that the numbers on that scale measure not only their weight, but also their self-worth and represent the only true value of their health and success. One of the things I often tell the trainers I teach is that people should get healthy to lose weight, NOT lose weight to get healthy. There’s been a few studies conducted on this. I saw recently in an article by Yoni Freedhoff, results showing that viewers’ bias to believe obese people are overweight just because they are lazy, is greatly increased. Interestingly, those same viewers were reported to be less inclined (go figure) to want to exercise or expect it to be enjoyable after watching a 7.5 minute workout on the show, according to a study published this month in the American Journal of Health Behavior. People are screaming and crying and throwing up, and if you’re not a regular exerciser you might think this is what exercise is – that it’s this horrible experience where you have to push yourself to the extremes and the limits.

Elisha is a registered nurse and midwife who has years of experience working in emergency departments, general wards and maternity wards

Extreme weight loss will always slow a person’s metabolism, what wasn’t expected in other research was the magnitude of that decrease; researchers found that participants’ metabolisms slowed by an average of 504 more calories than losing weight slower. In turn, this suggests that the show’s approach to weight loss may have risks unto itself and led the researchers to state: “Unfortunately, fat free mass preservation did not prevent the slowing of metabolic rate during active weight loss, which may predispose to weight regain unless the participants maintain high levels of physical activity or significant caloric restriction.” Figures why most of the contestants regain their initial weight! If you’re a regular viewer here’s my suggestion. Instead of spending hours a week watching ‘The Biggest Loser’, why not use that same amount of time to ensure you pack your lunch for work each and every day and take three 20-minute walks a week with a friend or a loved one. The impact of those behaviours will be far more valuable and positive to your mental and physical well-being than watching a show that science suggests may be doing more harm than good.

Time travel is invented and only available on the black market. The mobs use the time travel function to get rid of people so there is no trace of

In an attempt to avoid his own assassination the movie follows younger Joe trying to chase his older self in an effort to find out why the mob wants him dead.

CHATTER ON THE BOX WITH NATHAN TAYLOR T

he tennis is over and cricket is just about done, and it’s time for networks to resume normal programming…

Kicking off this week was the new series of ‘My Kitchen Rules’ and boy did it get off to a good start. 1.38 million viewers tuned in to the first episode, beating ‘Masterchef: The Professionals’ by nearly 500,000 viewers. It’s understood the series, which was filmed late last year, actually gets better as the episodes roll on, so expect to see the numbers climb for ‘MKR’ over the coming weeks.

Sad news last week with the death of an Aussie icon, Patricia Lovell, best known as ‘Miss Pat’ on ‘Mr. Squiggle’. Lovell died last weekend following a battle with liver cancer. She was 83. A few of our favourite shows were renewed in the US recently. Channel Ten’s ‘Dr. Phil’ has been renewed for three more years, as has HBO’s hugely successful ‘Girls’ which will continue for a third season. It wasn’t good news for US comedy ‘Ben and Kate’, which recently got the axe and ‘Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23’, which also got the chop.

Get excited Kardashian fans, returning to E! on Tuesday, March 5 is the latest instalment of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’. Kourtney, along with her partner Scott and their children Mason and Penelope, will share a mansion with Kim in Miami as the sisters make the destination beach city their home base for the next few months. Lastly, one show that I’m loving at the moment is A&E’s ‘Ghost Adventures’, screening every Saturday night at 11.30pm. If you love the paranormal but can’t stay up that late, set your IQ or DVR because this show is absolutely awesome. The ‘Ghost Adventures’ crew investigate the scariest, most notorious, haunted places in the world. The enthusiastic trio interview eye-witnesses and historians at each location, arming themselves with the stories of the ghosts they will later confront during their dusk to dawn lockdowns. They then review and analyse their findings with some of the most respected experts and specialists in the paranormal field. There are plenty of ghost shows around but this by far is the best!

This month’s film is the classic 1955 James Dean movie ‘East of Eden’. To book phone 9335 2173. Don’t forget your popcorn!

2001: A Space Odyssey Arguably the most revered and controversial science fiction film of all time, ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is back in a completely new way. One of the most exciting events in the Sydney Festival line-up, you can experience Kubrick’s classic sci-fi film alongside a live soundtrack from Sydney Symphony and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs. Considered strange for its use of classical music in a science fiction film when it was first released, today the movie is regarded as the perfect example of harmony between visuals and sound in film. Tickets start from $55. For more information visit www.sydneyfestival.org.au.

Crunch time for A-League Sydney FC need a win against Newcastle to secure a temporary spot in finals NATHAN TAYLOR

truggling A-League franchise Sydney FC have the opportunity to leapfrog their way up the ladder this weekend, but they’ll have to overcome the inconsistent Newcastle Jets fi rst. The Sky Blues are currently sitting in eighth position on 20 points but are potentially just one win away from cracking the coveted top six. It’s fair to say Saturday afternoon’s clash at Hunter Stadium between the Jets and Sydney FC is the most important one to date for the two clubs this season. A victory by either side will ensure their spot in the fi nals at least for a week. Making Sydney FC’s trip up the F3 even more difficult this weekend is the fact that they’ll be without three key players. Defenders Tiago Calvano and Fabio Alves won’t travel due to suspension, while veteran mid-fielder Brett Emerton is out with a back and hamstring injury. Their opponents, Newcastle, are unbeaten in the last four games, scoring one win and three draws, however the Jets are struggling to score points, only notching up two goals in those four appearances. Meanwhile, critics are calling it their best performance of the season after crosstown rivals, Western Sydney Wanderers, showed the Melbourne Heart their hearts last Saturday night. Reduced to just 10 men for 80 minutes, the Wanderers outplayed and outmuscled

their opponents, who were sitting just one place below them on the A-League ladder. Despite being outnumbered on the paddock, Western Sydney were fitter, stronger and hungrier, beating the Heart 1–0 after a Shinji Ono penalty kick. Coach Tony Popovic was full of praise for his team for their physical and mental

strength and the way they stuck to their game plan. “That was a fi rst for us, we were down to 10 men and the boys continued to play within a structure and with confidence,” he said. “We knew that if we did not give the ball away in silly areas we could win the

match.” Th is week, fans will be hoping the Wanderers still have plenty of fight left in them when they take on the fourth placed Adelaide United at Hindmarsh Stadium. Th is will be the third meeting between the two clubs wirh the series currently standing at one win apiece.

Academy director Ben Burrows said the young players were thrilled to be given the opportunity to show their soccer skills and host community matches for the crowds to join in on.

Inner West team prepares for battle with South West Sydney VANESSA WATSON

he Inner West Roller Derby League strapped its skates on again this month to prepare to battle the South West Sydney Rockets in March. Skater Yvette Le’Nepveu, one of the league’s three founders, said training kicked off on January 16 with practice games, basic skills sessions and helping members improve their ‘derby stance’ on skates. “We are getting back into it after the holiday session to get as many people ready for ‘bouting’,” Ms Le’Nepveu said. “Our next public bout will be against the lovely ladies from SWS on Sunday, March 24. We are also doing a round robin tournament with four other leagues starting in May.” The IWRDL holds two official training sessions per week, one at Five Dock Leisure centre on Wednesdays and at Mascot on Sundays. “We also tend to do other things such as street skating or skate parks as a group.” As well as honing their skating skills, the league recently donned new uniforms for its fi rst home bout on December 9. The IWRDL contains about 40 members, including referees, non-skating officials, injured skaters and skaters at different skill levels.
