THRASHING The Newtown Jets have delivered a convincing win over Wyong, winning 40-6 at Morry Breen Oval. Special mention must go to wingers O’Sullivan and Rokolati, who each scored a hat-trick. The win comes in time for the match up of the season, the Jets versus Cronulla, this Saturday. For a full match report, see the back page.

Origin II has Blues and Maroons fans at war! BASIL NAIMET

S

tate of Origin rivalry runs deep with Deonte Williams from Tempe and Jeremiah Mundine from Dulwich Hill. Both nine-year-olds are close mates who play in the same rugby league team, the Alexandria Rovers under 10’s. On Wednesday night they’ll both be donning their favourite State’s colours and barracking for their favourite players. Both are South Sydney supporters, but come Origin, they split allegiances.

“I’ll be cheering for Nathan Merritt, it’s his fi rst game for the Blues, he’s my idol,” Deonte said. Jeremiah said he looked to Greg Inglis for inspiration. Being a fast runner with excellent pace Jeremiah, moulds himself around Greg Inlis. “I love to watch Greg Inglis play. He’s my idol,” Jeremiah said. The Blues go into Wednesday night’s second Origin match with a 1-0 lead in the series but winning at Suncorp Stadium is never easy. There’s been drama for the Blues, too, with two players unable to take part in Origin II because of police charges for off-field incidents.

For Deonte, a Blues victory on Wednesday would be extra special, because he hasn’t seen New South Wales win a series since he was a toddler. For Jeremiah, he may just have to get used to losing for the fi rst time in a long, long time at Origin level. Marrickville sports fanatics are gearing up for Wednesday night’s clash with big numbers expected at local clubs and pubs to watch the game, which kicks off at 8.00pm. Send us your pics of how you celebrate Origin on Wednesday! Email them to basil.naimet@ innercityweekender.com.au.

W

e fi nd ourselves here again folks! Kevin from Queensland wants his job back and tough Julia won’t

budge. At the top of the frequently asked question list this week... is Julia Gillard going to survive until the election? I have spoken to dozens of people about this very question – journalists, Labor insiders, Liberals with Labor friends, staffers, MPs and some ministers. Do any of them know what going on? The answer is no! One well plugged-in Rudd supporter warned me “if anyone tells you they know anything for certain – they’re lying”. There has been perhaps undue focus on Bill Shorten – he’s under pressure from the Rudd camp to reinstate him – one MP even went as far to say, “Bill Shorten has the opportunity to either wipe out the next generation of MPs or help save them from political oblivion”. That’s a fair burden. If anything is going to happen, all sides say it won’t happen until the latter part of next week. Whatever happens, It’s not going to be pretty. I can’t see Julia Gillard standing down and packing it all in. And Kevin Rudd won’t challenge and be embarrassed a third time. The polls can’t be helping – as marginal seat holders look at the papers daily and see their period of unemployment fast approaching. Some in the Gillard camp have to be weighing up the switch – morale is diabolically low among Labor’s

most staunch supporters and you get the feeling the every-man-for-himself mentality is starting to creep in. Next week is the one to watch – it’ll be a blockbuster or an over-hyped flop. Popcorn and a stiff drink should be at the ready! Ahhhh Labor leadership – it’s really

becoming an oxymoron, isn’t it.

Budget commits further funds to light rail service

Lawn mowing & Garden Maintenance

The NSW Government handed down its Budget for 2013-14 on Tuesday, with the Inner West set to score investment in major transport infrastructure projects like the light rail service...

• AFFORDABLE PRICES • RELIABLE • FRIENDLY SERVICE

BASIL NAIMET

he NSW Government has delivered a budget that will see $14.6 billion invested in public transport and roads over the next 12 months, including $1 billion that will be added to rail and light rail services. Residents of Dulwich Hill will benefit from $67 million to complete the Inner West light rail extension providing a 5.6 kilometre track for light rail connecting the Inner West to Dulwich Hill. Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said the Government was committed to improving train services through major reforms to rail maintenance. Mareike Schmidt who works in Marrickville said she welcomed the injection of funds for the extension of the light rail to Dulwich Hill as it would save her time travelling from North Sydney. “Anything that can minimise travel time has to be good. It will save me a lot of time in city travel to and from home daily. I’ll be using the light rail,” she said. The budget included $899 million to deliver more Waratah trains, which included $66 million for infrastructure to accommodate the fleet in 2013-14.

New funding program helps artistic students

Police are appealing for public assistance after a convenience store in Sydney’s inner west was held up at knife point. About 11pm on Sunday, June 16, a man entered a convenience store on Stanmore Road, Stanmore, and threatened the male shop attendant with a box cutter. He left a short time later on foot with an amount of cash and police from Marrickville Local Area Command were notified. The staff member was not injured in the incident. A crime scene was established and examined by specialist forensic officers. Investigators would like to speak to a man who may be able to assist with their inquiries. He is described as being of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean appearance, about 20 years of age, approximately 180cm tall, with a thin build and thick black eyebrows. At the time he was wearing a black hooded jacket, navy blue track pants, and white shoes. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

he Australian Government has allocated $8 million to help fund up-and-coming creative stars from performing arts, cultural studies, schools and community service, and academia. 23 grants to the value of $500 will be issued to individuals under the age of 25. Groups with six members or more under the age of 25 also have a chance to snap up one of four grants worth $3,000. Federal Member for Grayndler Anthony Albanese said the fi rst round of applications will be accepted until 5pm today. The grants would give those with aspiring creative talents a fi nancial boost. “Many gifted young people are unable to take advantage of opportunities because they simply do not have the money… we are complementing our record investments in school education with this investment to help young Australians realise their dreams,” Mr Albanese said. Th ree students from St Maroun’s College Dulwich Hill will be vying for the grants. Houda Assi is a budding writer who entered a short stories competition online and had her work published in March this year. “I love writing and I want to write full length books,” she said. Houda said she’ll use the funds to buy a computer to continue writing short stories. Jake Healy, 17, is a songwriter. He has written the school’s anthem and said he would like to use the money to record his fi rst song. Jordan Koorey, 14, is an aspiring director.

Plan for summons via SMS Investment in jury duty management will move system into 21st century CASSANDRA O CONNOR

orget that official letter in the mail summoning you to jury duty, people in NSW could soon be summoned by a simple text message. The NSW Government will invest $4.2 million to overhaul jury duty management. “[It] will make the process of selecting jurors more efficient and user friendly for potential jurors and staff alike,” said Attorney General Greg Smith. People could soon be notified via SMS and provide information about the most suitable dates for jury service on their mobile phone or tablet computer.

we should do our part to make it easy for jurors to serve,” Mr Smith said. The system will use security with full audit trails to ensure no unauthorised

access to jurors’ information. Last fi nancial year 8,748 jurors were selected to serve on trials lasting from one day to several months.

Disappointed

The Inner City Weekender

Schools and TAFE campuses in Marrickville will be disappointed that the O’Farrell Government has again cut TAFE funding and school infrastructure spending and axed another 315 full-time high school staff in the State budget – adding to the 665 who have disappeared over the past year. Member for Marrickville, Carmel Tebbutt, said the effects of the O’Farrell Government’s $1.7 billion education cuts from last year were still biting. All up, the education and training sector’s share of State Government total expenses has gone backwards from 22.4 per cent to 21 per cent she said. “There are many disappointing features in the education budget,” Ms Tebbutt said. “Marrickville schools have missed out on infrastructure funding with no schools in the local area nominated for capital works funding. “Axing the jobs of another 315 high school staff is the worst possible strategy when we are meant to be promoting greater Year 12 retention.”

Vaccine update

06

142ICD2881

Amendments to laws regarding the enrolment of children in child care centres passed through NSW Parliament on Thursday, with the aim of increasing rates of childhood vaccination across the state. Health Minister Jillian Skinner said the new laws, which come into effect on 1 January 2014, were introduced by the NSW Government to improve protection from preventable diseases for all children enrolled in the state’s child care centres. “We have been resolute about tightening the rules around child immunisation and these changes mean parents who are reluctant to vaccinate will need to meet with a GP to discuss their decision and be educated on the associated health risks,” she said. Mrs Skinner said the concerns of child care centre operators informed the policy decision: “These operators feared it would be their responsibility to decide whether to accept or deny children who aren’t immunised and the confl ict it would create in their centres and communities”.

New look pool nearly ready Fanny Durack Swimming Centre’s renovation will be completed for summer BASIL NAIMET

anny Durack Swimming Centre is on track for completion for the 2013-14 swimming season, with an environmentally friendly renovation taking place over this winter seasonto reduce the centre’s carbon emissions and minimise its carbon footprint. The upgrades include a new and improved fi ltration system that will use 85 per cent less water and backwash cycles, the benefit being cleaner water with fewer chemicals and lower energy costs. The 25 metre, eight lane swimming pool is FINA approved and is in line with regulations set by the short course swimming standards and provides two extra lanes to increase lap swimming. The extra lanes will utilise space for learn-to-swim programs. The ‘pavilion’ style building will accommodate a café with improved landscaping and seating area, and there will be shade sails installed throughout the centre for sun protection. Marrickville Council has chosen to use timber over conventional materials like steel and concrete, which will feature heavily in the new café and plant room buildings to create a more natural setting. The timber used will be either Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Australian Forestry Standard Certified. Th is certification ensures that the timber is internationally recognised as coming from an approved source that does

Careful when cooking

Uni Games

Fire and Rescue NSW fi refighters are warning NSW residents to be careful when cooking after new figures show crews have attended more than 200 kitchen fi res over the past six weeks (since May 1) – nearly five a day. Over the past five days alone, fi refighters have attended 98 residential kitchen fi res.

NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, George Souris and Minister for Sport and Recreation, Graham Annesley, this week announced that NSW has secured the Australian University Games, with Sydney to host to the 2014 competition. “It will be the fi rst time in 13 years that the Australian University Games will take place in Sydney – a five day event from Sunday, September 28 to Friday, October 3, 2014,” Mr Souris explained. “The games will see 6,500 student athletes, along with team officials, staff and volunteers from more than 35 national universities taking part in 30 sports, including 5,000 athletes from interstate.” “It will be staged at some of Sydney’s world class sporting venues and universities including The University of Sydney, Macquarie University, University of NSW and University of Technology Sydney, as well as our spectacular beaches and harbour.” The Australian University Games is an annual multi-sport event.

Less fees

The Inner City Weekender

For the third year in a row, households are paying less in bank fees, according to analysis from the Australian Bankers’ Association (ABA). The ABA’s Fees for Banking Services 2013 Report found that bank fees from households have fallen by $1.12 billion or 22 per cent over the past three years, taking total fees paid by households to the lowest level for seven years. These falls have significantly reduced the cost of banking at a time when many other household expenses are going up. Th is year, fees paid by households fell 0.3 per cent, saving households $13 million. Steven Münchenberg, Chief Executive of the ABA, said there are a few reasons why households are paying less. “Banks have reduced and abolished many fees, and customers are choosing free or lower-cost banking products Total fees paid continue to fall, even though customers are doing increasing numbers of transactions, which means the cost per transaction has come down,” he said.

Bus incidents

142ICD3235

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian this week said Transport for NSW had accepted recommendations made by the Office of Transport Safety Investigations (OTSI) following an investigation into incidents of bus fi res in NSW between 2005 and 2012. “The safety of customers and staff on all transport services is paramount, whether they’re travelling on public bus routes or on privately run tourist services,” Ms Berejiklian said. “Transport for NSW has worked closely with OTSI on its investigations into past bus fi res and I’m pleased that many of the recommendations are already progressing.” One of the key recommendations made by OTSI relates to working with other States and authorities to establish an agreed set of standard guidelines for bus operators. “NSW is jointly funding and is actively involved in a project led by the Bus Industry Confederation to develop industry wide Bus Fire Mitigation Advisory guidelines,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Winter Appeal Most school kids only worry about losing stuff that ends up in lost property. Like books, jumpers, bags or hats. But disadvantaged kids face something more debilitating – the loss of self-belief. But for children with backgrounds of disadvantage, self doubt can be an every day occurence. And unlike their more advantaged peers, they don’t have help at home or the support networks to help them catch up. The ongoing experience of missing out, struggling to keep up at school and not fitting in, leaves them feeling isolated and vulnerable. But the Smith Family Winter Appeal aims to break this cycle of disadvantage by providing educational support to children throughout their life of schooling. To make a donation, visit www. thesmithfamily.com.au.

Planning views Do you believe the local community should have a say in development applications in your neighbourhood? The State Government’s White Paper – A new planning system for NSW – is proposing: – Community involvement will only occur at the early ‘strategic planning’ local planning stage; – New planning rules that aim to see 80 per cent of development proposals determined in less than 25 days It’s not too late to comment. Citizens should familiarise themselves with the proposed changes and give feedback before comment closes on Friday, June 28. Go to www.planning.nsw.gov.au.

ANTHONY ALBANESE FEDERAL MEMBER FOR GRAYNDLER

Facts not fear in the referendum debate n issue as important as the September 14 referendum deserves constructive debate. Sadly, we’ve seen little sense or clarity from opponents, but plenty of fear mongering. So, here are the facts.

A

FACT #1: Constitutional recognition has bipartisan support at the Federal level. The Government supports constitutional recognition of local government. The Coalition support it and so do the minor parties and the cross bench. The vote earlier this month was almost unanimous. Only two members of the House of Representatives voted against this proposal. FACT #2: Local government will continue to be the responsibility of state governments. The proposed amendment does not diminish the role of the States with regard to the administration of local government. Recognition in the Constitution does not alter the fact that local governments are created by and are accountable to State Governments. FACT #3: Constitutional recognition is simply about providing fin ancial

certainty. Constitutional recognition is about granting certainty so local councils can continue to provide the services and facilities that so many people across the country use every day. The Commonwealth has partnered with local councils to deliver local roads, sporting fields, libraries, childcare and community services. Together we have delivered programs like Roads to Recovery which has enabled upgrade and repair work to take place at 16,000 road sites across the country. FACT #4: The proposed amendment is carefully worded and based on expert independent advice.

Refugees “lost in oblivion” Centre’s poignant reminder of the plight of young children in refugee camps BASIL NAIMET

R

aising awareness of the plight of refugees has been the focus of the Addison Road Community Centre in Marrickville during Refugee

Week. The annual week, which ran from June 16 and ends tomorrow, also celebrates the contributions refugees make to society. Together with members of the local community and not-for-profit community co-operative Reverse Garbage, the centre has built a makeshift refugee camp and a ‘Wall of Oblivion’ at the centre to visually convey their message. Reverse Garbage is Australia’s largest creative reuse centre committed to promoting sustainability through reuse of resources at the Marrickville centre. CEO Narelle Mantle said she hoped the make-shift camp would send a strong message that refugees need Australia’s help. “The refugee camp we have built from reuse materials is a very small reflection of the harsh conditions faced by refugees across the world in camps and detention centres,” she said. Ms Mantle will be at the camp to bring attention to the plight of the refugees and support them with the message to “make detention centres history”. The most poignant of reminders of detention centres is the ‘Wall of Oblivion’ which has pictures of the faces of many children on display. The wall signifies the thousands of

children who are held in captivity in detention centres throughout the world. “Men, women and families have faced death to flee their countries to fi nd

freedom and safety, only to be placed behind a fence like prisoners,” Ms Mantle said. The refugee camp and the ‘Wall of

Oblivion’ can be viewed during Refugee Week until tomorrow at the Addison Road Community Centre, 142 Addison Road, Marrickville.

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Th is is one of those weeks when it is defi nitely going to be wise to think before you speak, especially when dealing with colleagues, clients and bosses as it will save you endless trouble. Mind you, other people may not be so considerate and you may have to deal with someone who fails to engage their brain before they open their mouth. Try not to hold this against them – tempting as this may be.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

If you have any travel plans on the boil then matters are likely to be complicated, therefore be certain to check that your car is full of petrol and that connecting fl ight you are keen to catch is still available. Also, although you are keen to forge ahead with your ambitions, you could jeopardise your chances of success by being too pushy. Make yourself popular by being warm and friendly and showing just how personable you really are!

GEMINI

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

The Full Moon is in your eighth house meaning that there could be a few hiccups involving mortgage payments, credit card charges, insurance matters, taxation issues, Centrelink matters, legal and official issues and joint fi nances that you share with either your business partner, lover or flatmate. The best way to avoid misunderstandings or underhand dealings is for all your communications to be clear.

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

The planets are activating your desire to have your own way, unless you tread carefully this could work against you. By all means put your cards on the table and make it clear what you think is the best course of action, but bear in mind that only yesterday you had everyone on your side and you don’t want to lose your hard won advantage. So use a little forethought before you charge in where angels fear to tread!

LEO

The Inner City Weekender

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

Before you sign off on any important work matter or project be certain to double check things as something important could easily be overlooked that would be obvious to you at any other time. A little forethought now will save you a lot of trouble later. Your energy levels are going to be low as your batteries will need recharging. If you’ve been eating or drinking too much, now is the ideal time to cut back on the excess.

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

Friday, June 21, 2013

Misunderstandings and confusion is likely with your children and partner; in fact it will be quite a challenge to work out what someone is up to, as they seem to be doing their best to be evasive. As a result of this situation it is not a good time for important discussions because there is so much scope for crossed communications. Take heed of your intuition as you’ll hit on the perfect way to handle this situation.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

The planets expose your vulnerable side, making the atmosphere at home and between yourself and certain family members difficult to deal with. You’re particularly tuned in to the subtle clues that those closest to you are giving. Be careful, however, about misreading signals someone is sending and then holding it against them. As long as you listen as much with your mind as your heart, a loving relationship can be transformed.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

Patience is going to be required on the road as delays of all types are likely. Be certain to allow yourself an extra 20 minutes if you have an important meeting to attend. Complications are likely with paperwork as your head will feel as though it is stuffed with cotton wool. You need to be especially careful when dealing with legal matters or court issues as nothing is going to be straight forward.

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

You need to be prepared for hidden costs and expenditures as the Full Moon is shining in the fi nancial sector of your chart. Therefore, avoid being impetuous or impulsive. Also, someone is making all the right noises but something tells you not to trust them completely. Perhaps you have good reason for doubting their word, in which case be extremely circumspect and direct when dealing with them.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

The home and family are certainly front and centre in your mind. Perhaps you will be moving house or planning some changes in your existing home at this time, but either way you will feel excited at the prospect of something new. You are also likely to be doing a lot of entertaining or perhaps having people stay over; either way, you’ll enjoy opening up your home to friends and family. People you haven’t seen for ages will popping up.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Your popularity is certainly on the rise as many will come knocking at your door for advice, guidance or just a friendly chat. Thanks to your accurate intuition your actions are positively inspired. Ideas will just drop into your mind and they’ll defi nitely work to your advantage. There is also a strong possibility that some money owed to you will fi nally come your way. Th is is the ideal time to purchase a new car or mobile phone.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

You are certainly going to be feeling confident and buoyant about the materialistic side of life as your earning power goes up several notches. Thanks to your entrepreneurial mood, you’ll be ready to tackle any kind of business or fi nancial matter, particularly if the goal is to give you greater freedom. You are determined to clear up any outstanding money matters, so make your intentions clear so that you can negotiate the terms.

Eating the right foods utrition is a huge part of maintaining good health. Unfortunately foods in our shops at the moment have more health claims than ever before but we are getting sicker than ever before too. The more new foods use science to break down products into marketable components (e.g. low cholesterol or high-fibre), the further we get from the big picture of real, whole food. It’s crazy but our ancestors in caves had a much better idea of what to eat than we do. The author Michael Pollen has written some books on the subject and I liked his answer to the following often asked question. Our family is on a budget and can’t afford to eat all organic. Where should we direct our money to get the most benefit; organic produce, meats, dairy? “Some organic products offer the consumer more value than others, so if you’re on a budget, it’s important to buy organic strategically. Here are a few quick rules of thumb: “If you have young kids, it’s worth paying the organic premium on whatever they eat or drink the most of organically. So if they drink lots of apple juice – which they shouldn’t, by the way – or milk, then spring for it there. “On produce, some items, when grown conventionally, have more pesticide residue than others, so when buying these, it pays to buy organic. According to the

N

KEEPING FIT by David Stein

Strength training for women Environmental Working Group, the “dirty dozen” most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables are: apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, imported nectarines, imported grapes, sweet bell peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce and kale/collars. The “clean 15” are onions, sweet corn, pineapples, avocado, asparagus, sweet peas, mangoes, eggplant, cantaloupe, kiwi, cabbage, watermelon, sweet potatoes, grapefruit and mushrooms. “So if you’ve only got a little money to devote to organic, buy the organic apples and skip the organic onions. But do keep in mind that it’s important to eat fruits and vegetables regardless of how they’re grown. “In meat, organic is very expensive, and doesn’t necessary ensure that the animals didn’t live on feedlot. I look for grass fed for beef instead, milk and butter, too.” It’s little things like this that help when we start trying to make sense of the massive information overload when it comes to food products. Keep it simple with your families’ food choices, remember what your great Aunt Ethel told you about which foods to eat, and you’re on the right track.

T

his week Geoff Carter, owner of Fit for Purpose PT has written in for us.

Firstly, let’s dispel this myth that if you do any strength training you will grow big, horrible muscles. Unless you train for many hours per day and use illegal substances that cannot happen! What will happen is that your health and quality of life will improve and you will tone up. Strength training is simply moving your body in some way against a resistance. That resistance might be weights, resistance bands or simply just your own body weight against gravity. Strength training has numerous and significant health benefits, but many people do not understand just how important strength training is to long-term overall health. - It increases strength and lean body mass. Lean body mass loss happens through aging and a lack of regular exercise. - Better strength means we maintain function for life; loss of functionality means a reduction in the quality of life. - Increases metabolic rate: strength training results in the expenditure of more calories all day long even when not exercising and coupled with good nutrition, results in a healthy weight for life.

Everything a girl needs to know

- Increases bone mineral density: slowing down the rate of bone mineral density loss can decrease chances of osteoporosis later on. - Reduces resting blood pressure through improved cardiovascular fitness. - Improves insulin sensitivity through effective glucose utilisation. - Improves cholesterol levels. - Reduced arthritic pain: movement nourishes and lubricates your joints. - Improved posture: the right training will improve your posture. - Enhanced self-confidence. - Greater independence: perform daily tasks safely and without risk of pain or injury. Many women are apprehensive at fi rst about strength training but now love the feeling of getting stronger and feel empowered by their abilities to do functional tasks that they were unable to do before. It is never too early or too late to start a strength training program. It can be done in the comfort of your own home, in a gym or even in your local park. The sooner you start, the easier it will be to maintain strength, lean body tissue and the anti-ageing benefits as you get older. You can find Geoff at www.f4p.com.au.

Monsters University: Holiday flick will do the trick for kids ids and parents alike loved the smash hit movie ‘Monsters Inc’, which introduced audiences to the lovable, funny monster duo of Mike and Sulley. Now, almost 12 years later, a prequel has fi nally been released with ‘Monsters University’ taking us back a decade before the events of the fi rst fi lm and giving us a glimpse at what the monsters were like in their college days. While Mike and Sulley grew up to be the perfect partners in crime, back in their university days they were a little more at odds. When the geeky, intelligent and serious Mike goes to university, he’s delighted to begin his classes majoring in scaring but becomes a little disheartened when he discovers he’s in the same fraternity as his polar opposite – the brawny, fun-loving Sulley. With such strong personalities and outlooks on life, the two monsters are inevitably doomed to become enemies in a vendetta that draws in their classmates. Can the two eventually fi nd their way to friendship? ‘Monsters University’ is suited to fans of the fi rst fi lm and anyone who enjoys family comedy.

CHATTER ON THE BOX WITH NATHAN TAYLOR T

he promos have started and boy does it look good. Channel Ten have finally given an airdate for the new Stephen King and Steven Spielberg mini-series ‘Under The Dome’. The show will air on the same day as it does in the US on Tuesday, June 25 at 8.30pm. ‘Under The Dome’ is a psychological drama about a town trapped under an impenetrable dome. Suffering ‘Days Of Our Lives’ fans, here’s the news you’ve been waiting for. ‘Days’ will not be coming back to television in Australia but instead has been made available online for free via streaming video service Crackle. New free on-demand episodes of ‘Days’ began this week at Crackle.com as well as across Crackle’s apps for mobile devices, connected TVs and game consoles. Crackle will pick up

where Nine left off, offering 10 episodes this week followed by seven new episodes each Monday. Each episode will be available for four weeks. While this is obviously great news for fans of the show, being available online only does isolate a lot of its core audience, the elderly, which I see as a massive problem. Channel Seven have announced a new five-year deal with Tennis Australia, which will see the Australian Open aired on the network until 2019. The new $40 million per year deal includes significantly expanded free to air coverage of Australian Open and AO Series events of more than 330 hours; a commitment to broadcast free to air on two channels during the Australian summer of tennis; a commitment to live streaming of all Australian Open and AO Series broadcast courts online and on mobiles and tablets.

Seven will cover the Australian Open and all other major tennis events in the Australian Open Series, including the Brisbane International, Apia International Sydney and AAMI Kooyong Classic. The ‘Today’ show will be broadcasting from Canada on Monday, July 1. The ‘Today’ team will get up close to Canada’s wildlife, including bears, killer whales and explore Canada’s spectacular wilderness including the Rocky Mountains and glaciers. They will meet cowboys from Canada’s world famous Calgary stampede, Karl is going to do some log rolling (interesting) and there will be live music plus a visit from the Royal Canadian Mounties. One of my favourite celebrity chefs, Gordon Ramsay, returned to television this week in a new show called ‘Hotel Hell’. The

show sees the outspoken chef offer advice and criticism to the proprietors of struggling hostelries around the US. I very much enjoyed the first episode, it was classic Ramsay in a totally new setting. ‘Hotel Hell’ airs Monday nights on Channel Nine.

Lastly, the second series of ‘The Voice’ wrapped on Monday night to massive numbers. 2.3 million people tuned in to see Harrison Craig crowned the winner. Harrison’s win wasn’t at all surprising to me, not only did he chew up a lot of airtime during the series because of his remarkable story with his speech impediment but if you followed the iTunes charts closely he consistently had songs in the top 10 each week, which meant for every song downloaded he received two votes. There’s still no word yet on which coaches will be back for season three.

The production will be at the Lyric Theatre until Sunday, June 30 and for bookings and further information, visit www.warhorseonstage.com/tickets/ australia.

The book is a brutally frank and honest account of the debilitating effect of post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of 20 years of exposure to the horrors and trauma of police work.

Taste of the A-League Earlwood juniors shown the ropes by Sydney FC stars in local clinic BASIL NAIMET

arlwood Wanderers Football Club was treated to a moment of football magic last Thursday night when three of Sydney FC’s stars trained with the local juniors at Earlwood Oval. Over 150 young footballers took part in a training session, which featured midfielder Peter Triantis, forward Mitchell Mallia and defender Matt Jurman. The Sydney FC stars took part in a number of drills and mini games with the juniors, showing them skills that will one day make them future stars of Australian football. After completing ten sessions with the kids, the Sydney FC players headed to the Earlwood Clubhouse where they signed gear, boots and other memorabilia. Striker Mitch Mallia was more than impressed by the standard and amount of children who took part. “It’s great to be able to come and help out, and hopefully teach these kids a thing or two about the game,” he said. “They are very enthusiastic and it gives you a real satisfaction to know you’ve encouraged their enjoyment of the game.” Club Marketing Manager Theo Fotopoulos said the night was more than just a training session as the three star Sydney FC players provided tutorials and motivational speeches that gave an insight into their rise to the top of Australian football. “All three players were terrific, they really got personal with the kids and

engaged with them. They shared their life experiences,” Mr Fotopoulos said. Mr Fotopoulos said the Sydney FC player coaching clinic was a collaboration

between three stakeholders. “Sydney FC, Earlwood Wanderers Football Club and Canterbury District Soccer Football Association have come

together to provide junior players the opportunity to learn from the elite players. We hope to continue this partnership throughout the year,” he said.

Sport Hat-tricks for wingers O’Sullivan and Rokolati score three apiece in easy win ewtown decisively defeated the Wyong Kangaroos 40-6 at Morry Breen Oval last Sunday. The Jets led 26-0 at half time and had the greater share of possession in the second half with a penalty count of 7-1 giving the Jets the ascendency. During the break Jets coach Greg Matterson impressed on his players to keep the pressure on and to stay focussed on their game plan. The Jets added three more tries in the second half, with O’Sullivan claiming his third and Rokolati scoring two more, ensuring that both Newtown wingers scored hat-tricks. They endured a second-half fight-back by the Wyong team, who showed courage and determination in taking the contest right up to the bigger Newtown pack. But the Jets showed too much class for the Roos. Newtown coaching staff made mention of the tremendous effort put in by all the Jets forwards, both in possession and in brutalising Wyong’s ball-carriers in defence. Ryley Jacks controlled play well from halfback and wingers O’Sullivan and Rokolati deserved special mention for their three tries apiece. The Newtown Jets make a welcome return
