THE HEARTBEAT OF PENRITH

SHOCK SHOOTING The quiet suburb of Castlereagh was awoken by the sound of gunfi re when a late-night attempted home invasion last week turned into a near-deadly shootout. One man was seriously injured in the incident and remains in hospital. In a remarkable twist, it has since been revealed that the victim has previously found himself at the centre of a high profi le shooting drama.

NBN shambles as locals are evacuated from homes

wo Penrith families have been evacuated from their homes amid fears they have been exposed to asbestos by Telstra contractors remediating pits for the installation of the National Broadband Network. The Weekender reported on May 17 that Telstra and WorkCover had commenced emergency investigations into allegations that contractors remediating Telstra pits in Hornseywood Avenue, Penrith, had exposed residents to asbestos concrete dust. Emotional representations made by affected

residents to Penrith City Council on Monday night heightened concerns that Telstra and the contractor involved, Service Stream, had done nothing to rectify the situation, three weeks after the residents were fi rst exposed. Troy Lancaster, who lives on the corner of Hornseywood Avenue and Evan Street, said that his family’s lives have been changed forever after they were exposed to dust containing asbestos. “The fact is we were not notified of these works. My wife and my 15-month-old son have been exposed because they were in the front yard, going about their daily lives,” he said. “Who can tell us whether this will cut our lives short? Are we scared for our families? Yes we are.”

WW2811

Matthew O’Farrell, who initially raised the alarm on May 7 when he saw workers breaking up concrete asbestos with a hammer, said his family is also very emotional and distressed. “We have asbestos dust over the front lawn, in our cars, in our prams, on the carpet where my six-year-old and 12-week-old lie down and play, even in my shoes I found the dust,” he said. The families met with Telstra and Service Stream last Friday and were given two nights in the Chifley Hotel while remediation of the pits was to occur and were told to return home on Tuesday morning.

Exclusive: Work begins on new-look school for local children with special needs It’s full steam ahead for the new-look Kurrambee School in Werrington, with staff and students hopeful it will be open before the end of the year...

C

CASSANDRA O'CONNOR

onstruction on the new site for Kurrambee School in Werrington has commenced, providing a welcomed boost to students and staff. In August 2012, the Federal Government partnered with the NSW Government to announce an unprecedented investment in the school; $10 million for new facilities at a new location. Kurrambee caters for children with severe learning disabilities and who need intensive learning support, so the school is being relocated to the site of the Penrith Valley Learning Centre to improve disability access to the school. The Learning Centre will be relocated to the old school grounds, also with upgraded facilities. “We are hoping that the school will be ready for us in December, so long as there are not delays from the weather and such,” said Principal, Lisa Moffat . The development application for the school was approved by Penrith Council on April 26. “The development application for the interiors and landscaping was recently approved which is very exciting, and so in the last few weeks work has commenced,” Ms Moffat said. “They have already started the foundations for the classrooms. Every day I drive past and see the progress that is being made.” The school is one of 16 special schools for disabled children across New South Wales that received residual funding from the Federal Government's Building the Education Revolution (BER) program.

The new facilities for the school include 10 new or refurbished classrooms, a hydrotherapy pool, a special programs room and associated multi-purpose

building, new administration facilities and improved drop-off access to meet special needs requirements. Lindsay MP David Bradbury is

enthusiastic about the school’s progress. “Th is redevelopment will ensure students, their families and their carers have access to modern facilities,” he said.

AFL racism “scandal” is a beat-up and an embarrassment

ast week I wrote about how the smallest of issues become unnecessary stories that get blown out of proportion in the 24-hour news cycle, and the harm it ultimately causes us as a nation. Right on cue, the issue struck again last weekend. Th is time the media and the AFL itself, combined to make a massive story out of something that should have been over within a couple of minutes. I happened to be in Melbourne last weekend, so I experienced the full force of the story that dominated the weekend in relation to Sydney Swans star Adam Goodes and a 13-year-old girl who made a so-called racist slur against him. For those who don’t know the story, Goodes was playing for the Swans against Collingwood at the MCG last Friday night when he heard the girl call him an “ape”. He immediately informed security, who frogmarched the young teenager up the stairs of the MCG. From there, this story became a tsunami. What followed was a series of media conferences, front page stories and widespread coverage and comment that painted a far more shameful light on us as a nation than the 13-year-old’s comment did in the fi rst place. Let me say from the outset that the girl, obviously, did the wrong thing. Let me also say that racism is a very serious issue, and one that in no way am I attempting to downplay. But the way this story exploded after the incident on Friday night is a disgrace – from so many angles. Firstly, it is very ordinary that the hundreds of thousands of viewers on Friday night were shown the girl being marched away by security, whilst being heckled by fans. Similar scenes of drunken louts being removed from sporting venues each and every weekend are not shown, and one could argue that alcohol abuse is just as much a blight on society as racism is. Huge question marks currently hover over her treatment by security and police on the night in question. She is, after all, a minor. To have a song and dance press conference the next day that was beamed live around the nation was ridiculous. To have Collingwood President Eddie McGuire come out on Monday saying he was “shocked” and “gutted”, carrying on

like he was the devastated but heroic figure of one of those B-grade disaster movies, was embarrassing. Also on Monday, we had NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell ordering anti-racism material be recirculated in schools. Oh please, Barry – that’s a joke and not a very funny one. If there’s an issue with racism in schools – and I am sure there probably is in some cases – then it shouldn’t have taken the actions of a 13-year-old girl from country Victoria to remind us to keep students informed of the rights and wrongs of the world. And as for the media, please, surely there are better things to focus on. The girl is 13-years-old. Yes, she’s old enough to know what she did was wrong. But she’s also young enough to make mistakes in life that shouldn’t have the potential to scar her forever. The way she has been hounded, spoken about and dealt with this week is shameful. Because the footage went live to air, anyone with even the smallest of computer skills can fi nd her face simply by searching for the footage online. If only the media gave so much attention to teenagers her age, and older, who perform the most abhorrent and disgraceful crimes, perhaps we could have more faith that our youth will grow up with the right values and visions. Pretending that the worst thing a teenager in Australia did this week was call an AFL player an ape is treating us all like we’re stupid. Adam Goodes didn’t deserve to be called an ape. The fact that it was the AFL’s Indigenous Round makes this a much juicier story for lazy and narrow-minded journalists, but in truth it makes very little difference to the issue itself. Catch a train at night, go to a sporting match on any weekend of the year, or walk the streets of Sydney after dark – then you’ll know the problems we have in terms of racism, and a whole heap of other issues. If we as a nation legitimately want to tackle racism, there’s many, many ways to do it. Targeting a 13-year-old girl and making her a scapegoat is not one of them. Pretending we’re all so outraged and are suddenly such a model and clean-cut society isn’t either.

ast week, the staff, parents and children of Bollygum Childcare Centre in South Penrith were livid when electricity to the facility was turned off. As reported by the Weekender last week, the Centre, located on Birmingham Road, has suffered at the hands of its owner, who has not been paying important bills such as electricity, water, staff wages, superannuation and waste disposal. The electricity has since been turned back on and the Department of Education and Communities has given the owner, Mark Myles, 30 days to ‘show cause’ he can still manage the business effectively. But staff have informed the Weekender that despite the imminent Show Cause notice, their pays were still delayed this week, and bills for workers compensation have been mounting. “Our pays were delayed again this week, but we received an email from Mr Myles making excuses. The girls aren't paid much as it is and they have families to support and count on that money being there,” one concerned Bollygum staffer said. “It just goes to show that he has done nothing about the Show Cause notice, because if he cared, he would have paid us on time for once.” The senior staffer said that workers compensation bills are also mounting, despite legal action previously.

he quiet suburb of Castlereagh was awoken by the sound of gunfi re when a late-night attempted home invasion last week turned into a near-deadly shootout. At about 11.45pm on Wednesday, May 22, emergency services attended a home in Rickards Road following reports of gunfir e. Police arrived on the scene when gunfi re was still being exchanged and fully exposed, made their way down the 20 metre driveway of the property where they found a man laying in the front yard with three gunshot wounds to the back and buttocks. Police allege that prior to being shot, the victim, 23-year-old Chipping Norton man, Adel Elkobaili, had attended the Castlereagh home with four others who had intended on attempting a home invasion. They arrived outside the family home, where three children were inside, in two cars and after a confrontation and an exchange of shots, attempted to flee the scene. “We know he attended the scene in one of two cars, a white Ford Falcon or a silver/ gold four cylinder car,” said Penrith LAC’s Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Grant Healey. “We were able to locate the Falcon. One of our Sergeants stopped it with two offenders in Post Office Road at Castlereagh. A fantastic job.”

Police believe that it was not a random attack and there have been some suggestions that the offenders were known to the homeowner. “Th is was a targeted attack and we are investigating the circumstances around that attack,” Detective Inspector Healey said. “We have a number of lines of inquiry to follow.” Police cannot confi rm how many shooters were there however two hand guns were recovered from the scene. Mr Elkobaili remains in hospital under police guard. Th is is not the fi rst time that he has had an involvement in gun-crime. He was arrested over a fatal shooting in Bankstown in 2009 however, was acquitted of the crime last year. Police are still searching for a number of others who were seen leaving the area in a silver sedan however three men, including the homeowner, were arrested that night. A 26-year-old man from Pemulway and 31-year-old man from Pendle Hill who had attempted to flee the scene before being stopped by police were taken to Penrith Police Station and charged with ‘special aggravated break and enter with intent’. The homeowner, a 37-year-old man, was released pending further inquiries. Detective Inspector Healey said that he was impressed with the bravery of the local police officers who fi rst attended the scene, putting themselves in a lifethreatening situation. “There were officers from the Dog Squad, St Marys LAC and Penrith LAC on

Bradbury’s plea Federal Lindsay MP David Bradbury has urged the Opposition not to turn the asbestos drama into a political football. It comes as the issue threatens to erupt into a political fight, with some Liberal Party members suggesting there has been a lack of action from Lindsay MP David Bradbury. Mr Bradbury denies that he has been silent on the issue. “I’ve been working closely with the residents,” he said. “There’s a lot of baseless allegations being made by Liberal representatives. I would simply encourage them all to work with myself and local residents to try to seek a resolution to this issue.” Earlier on Wednesday, Liberal candidate Fiona Scott had expressed concern about the asbestos issue. “As a candidate, I have discussed the matter with representatives of Council, with Stuart Ayres the state member and Senator Marise Payne, and I wholeheartedly support them in their raising of these issues,” Ms Scott said. “I support the strong stand that Council has taken, and I am also waiting to hear the public response of the Federal Member for Lindsay to the concerns raised locally, particularly given that the NBN rollout is one of his and the Gillard Government’s supposed symbolic projects. “The last thing Australia needs is for this to be rushed and for mistakes to be made which impact our local residents.” Ms Scott said the health and welfare of local residents should be paramount. Mr Bradbury agreed, saying his staff and himself personally have been heavily involved in talking with the affected residents and liaising with the relevant parties, including Telstra.

Telstra halts pit work Full, nationwide review to take place after Penrith debacle Continued from front page After extensive media coverage and representations by Penrith Mayor, Mark Davies, further accommodation has been provided for the families whilst their homes are remediated. Barry Robson, President of the Asbestos Disease Foundation Australia, is calling for the families to be registered with the Asbestos Diseases Board. “The families have been exposed, they need to be registered so that every three years they are tested... it is important they are tested because we don’t know what might happen 30, 40 and 50 years down the track,” he said. On Tuesday, the Mayor approached Telstra with the residents’ concerns, and asked for a 24-hour and 48-hour action plan for remediation. “The safety of our residents must come fi rst, and it is a serious concern that there has been such a delay in the process,” he said. “Council has no jurisdiction over what is happening but we have asked Telstra that measures be put in place so that this never happens in Penrith again.” A Telstra spokesperson has confir med remediation of the Penrith homes will commence shortly. “We have an obligation to the wider community to clean up these public sites as quickly as possible,” the spokesperson said. “The contractor Service Stream put a detailed remediation plan to [residents] after discussions since the incident

occurred – at this stage this will see the public sites cleaned and, with the residents’ approval, comprehensive cleaning of their properties will take place as well.” Service Stream have engaged an asbestos removal expert to do the work. Telstra has also announced that all

work on remediation of pits for the NBN has ceased until a review is undertaken. When contacted, an NBN Co spokesperson said: “The safe and proper handling and disposal of asbestos is non-negotiable. NBN Co has stringent policies and procedures in place for the management of asbestos.”

Money men go head to head From motorways to jobs and forecasting, debate tackled a range of issues

I

TROY DODDS

t was mostly friendly, sometimes hostile and every now and again, a little bit humorous. In the wake of the Federal Budget earlier this month, Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury and Shadow Assistant Treasurer Mathias Cormann faced off in a debate in Penrith last week, hosted by the Penrith Business Alliance at Penrith Stadium’s Chairman’s Lounge. The biggest story of the day last Thursday – Ford’s announcement that it was ending local manufacturing and cutting jobs – dominated the debate, closely followed by the WestConnex motorway, the topic that created the most angst between the two politicians. Mr Bradbury vigorously defended his Government’s stance that no tolls be put on existing motorways to help fund the WestConnex, and that the new motorway go all the way to the city. “I drive on the M4, you get to the end of the M4 at Concord and the rest of the trip takes as long as the trip from [Penrith] to the end of the M4,” he said. “If we’re going to build an extension to the M4 that doesn’t go all the way into the city, frankly I think it’s a waste of money. “If you are going to go and spend billions of dollars and simply dump people further up on Parramatta Road, that just doesn’t make sense.” Mr Cormann said he believed the Coalition had a far better plan on WestConnex, saying Labor’s plan had too

many conditions. “We will make it happen together with the State Government and under our approach it would start happening next year,” he said. “Under her (Prime Minister Julia Gillard) plan, it won’t actually start happening until 2019 – six years from now. In short, it just won’t happen.” Mr Bradbury was angered by this claim: “That is absolute rubbish. Where this 2019 figure has come from absolutely astonishes me. That is rubbish.” In the most explosive claim of the debate, Mr Cormann accused Treasurer Wayne Swan and Finance Minister Penny Wong of “deliberately and intentionally and dishonestly” over-estimating revenue, leading to poor economic forecasting. “They deliberately over-estimated revenue, they deliberately underestimated expenditure,” he said. Mr Bradbury retaliated: “Th is is an absolute furphy. I don’t sit there with Wayne Swan and Penny Wong and pluck these figures out of the air.” Mr Bradbury declared that “in so many respects, our world has changed”, before explaining why Labor couldn’t return the Budget to surplus as promised. “We’ve not been able to do that because we have faced significant writedowns in our revenue... in fact about $17 million worth of writedowns,” he said. “We will always support economic growth and we will always support jobs and the Budget that we have handed down does both of those things whilst at the same time delivering responsible savings

of just over $40 billion across the forward estimates period.” Mr Cormann said the past showed Labor’s Budget failures. “One of the best indicators of future performance is past performance,” he said. “The current Government inherited a

very strong Budget position back in 2007 ... but not only are we going to have another deficit this year, we’re going to have another deficit next year and the year after.” Mr Cormann blamed Wayne Swan’s forecasting, and not a lack of government revenue, for the Budget deficits.

LAURA JAYES Sky News Political Reporter news@westernweekender.com.au

Farewell to a genuine politician and a Labor man through and through

T

his week Martin Ferguson announced he’s quitting the political business after two decades. After the hurley-burley of Question Time, the strawberry blond haired, no-nonsense, oft-abrupt backbencher got to his feet and dropped a bombshell that came as a shock to many. He’d only been furnishing the backbench since March, when the Kevin Rudd supporter relinquished his Resources ministry after another failed leadership coup. On Wednesday he joked that his retirement speech was “his fir st and last from the backbench�. A Labor man through and through, he served 17 years in the parliament. He was a minister under Hawke, Keating, Rudd and Gillard. He was never too far from Labor, and spent six years as ACTU president before joining politics. Mr Ferguson is seen as an economic rationalist, a political pragmatist and a respected minister. His departure from politics perhaps signals the end of an era for Labor. There were tears in the chamber from the Labor man as he thanked his staff, the department and his family. Martin Ferguson is the epitome of a

career politician. His family have no doubt given way to his ambitions. Politicians cop criticism on a daily basis from all sides – the opposition, media and the public – and much of it is justified and fair. But Martin Ferguson’s departure should cause us to reflect on the often thankless job of our politicians. Long hours away from home and the party is always prioritised first. Public life is tough and whatever the fi nancial reward there’s every chance the most talented could earn at least double if they went corporate. Over the past few months we’ve lamented the disintegration of parliamentary debate. Th is week for just a moment, some wraith was restored. Tony Abbott came close to tears as he gave genuine thanks to a political foe. Julia Gillard put her differences aside and many broke with protocol in the chamber to line up and just give him a hug or shake his hand.

Council pushes ahead with Glossop St plans

A

CASSANDRA O'CONNOR

fter public consultation concluded on April 26, Penrith Council has considered feedback and will be progressing its application for Black Spot Funding for the upgrade of Glossop Street in St Marys. Residents were asked to consider an upgrade of Glossop Street including additional traffic lights, improved turning lanes and to have median strips closed between the Great Western Highway and Hobart Street. A spokesperson for Council said that: “after feedback was received from the community it was decided to proceed with Option A and Option C”. Option A included traffic lights at Adelaide Street, the closure of the median in front of King Street and Brisbane Street, and wider turning lanes onto the Great Western Highway. Option C is the same as Option A but without the additional traffic signals. A detailed Benefit Cost Analysis will be undertaken for Options A and C with a view to including these projects in the annual report submitted to Council endorsing projects for the Nation Building Black Spot Program. “Council is now working on black spot funding submissions for both options. The deadline for submissions is the third Friday in August, and then it can take up to one year to fi nd out whether we’re successful,” the Council spokesperson said. The Roads and Maritime Services has also been requested to investigate potential fi lter turn bans at existing traffic signal sites along Glossop Street, St Marys, namely Phillip and Chapel Streets, with a view to reducing accident severity. Roads and Maritime Services data shows that the majority of accidents reported on Glossop Street occur within just 10 metres of one of its major

Teen suffers stab wounds: Search for witnesses At about 6.30pm on Monday, May 27, police attended a house on Caloola Avenue, Penrith. Upon arriving at the scene, police found a 17-year-old girl with stab wounds to her upper thigh. Her injuries were not life threatening but she was taken to hospital for treatment. Police allege that the 18-year-old male occupant of the house became aggressive towards them at the scene and as a result, he was arrested and charged with assaulting police and hindering arrest. The man’s arrest was unrelated to the incident involving the female. Detectives are in the early stages of investigating how the girl received the injuries and are urging anyone with information to contact Penrith Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Search for man with mullet: Colyton stabbing At about 12.15pm on Saturday, May 25, two men became involved in a verbal argument at a park on Brooker Street at Colyton. During the argument one of the men, a 23-year-old, sustained a number of stab wounds. The alleged offender fled the scene on foot and was last seen running west on Muscio Street. Police and emergency services attended the scene where they found the injured man. The man was taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious but stable condition. A crime scene was established and police from St Marys LAC are hoping to speak to a man who they believe will be able to assist with investigations. He is described as being Caucasian in appearance, about 183cm tall and of a thin build. He may be wearing a black hooded jacket and dark tracksuit pants. The male is also described as having a ‘mullet’ style haircut. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Changes are planned for Glossop Street in St Marys.

JULIA GILLARD We are the ‘super’ party

L

abor is the party of superannuation. We created it and we’re the only ones who are interested in growing the retirement savings of hard-working Australians. My Government is boosting superannuation savings by gradually increasing the Superannuation Guarantee rate from nine per cent to 12 per cent by mid-2019. Th is will boost the retirement savings of around 8.4 million workers. With only one month to go until the fir st increase to the Superannuation Guarantee, the choice at the next election couldn’t be clearer. We are providing the Low Income Superannuation Contribution for people earning up to $37,000 from July 1, 2012. Th is will provide 3.6 million workers on low and modest wages, including 2.2 million women, with a tax cut on their superannuation contributions of up to $500 a year. We are abolishing the Superannuation Guarantee maximum age limit from July 1, 2013, enabling workers aged 70 and over to receive the Superannuation Guarantee for the fi rst time. And we are increasing the concessional contribution caps to $35,000 for Australians aged 60 and over from July 1, 2013 and extending this to Australians aged 50 and over from July 1, 2014. Labor’s plan will boost the national pool

of superannuation savings by more than $500 billion by 2037. For a 30-year-old on average full-time wages, the Government’s changes will add an additional $127,000 into their superannuation by the time they retire at 67. In stark contrast to the Government’s plans to increase superannuation, Tony Abbott is proposing to hit the retirement savings of working Australians. Mr Abbott has described superannuation as a “con-job” and a “confidence trick” and showed his true colours in his recent Budget Reply speech, saying he would delay reaching the 12 per cent level. The only thing Tony Abbott and the Liberal Party are interested in is cutting superannuation to the bone. Send your feedback to us via email on news@westernweekender.com.au.

TONY ABBOTT An issue too important to get wrong

L

ast Saturday night, I was at the Dreamtime at the ‘G game, the Essendon versus Richmond game, which has become the showcase for progress that the AFL has made in bringing indigenous players forward. Obviously there was a lot of talk about the incident involving Adam Goodes at the Sydney versus Collingwood game the night before. I thought the best thing to come out of that was Goodes’ magnanimity. He was very gracious, he was clearly very understanding, he was very concerned about anything that smacked of racism but I think he understands, and we all understand, that sometimes people do silly things and they shouldn’t, but hopefully they learn and we all learn from that. What I think the Australian public learned from this episode was that

there was a very magnanimous man speaking very graciously about something that has been quite upsetting. The following day, I joined former AFL footballer Michael Long, government ministers and shadow ministerial colleagues on the Journey to Recognition walk. All of us were there because it was an important day that is the beginning of an important journey of constitutional recognition for indigenous Australians. Our forefathers have created the most magnificent country on earth except in one respect: we have never properly acknowledged the fir st Australians. I see acknowledging Aboriginal people in our constitution not as changing it but as completing it. I don’t for a second underestimate the length of the journey or the distractions there may be along the way. But it must be done if we are to be whole as a people and as a nation. It’s too important to ignore. It’s too important to get wrong. It’s too important to turn into a political football. That’s why I pledge myself to help complete this journey. Your thoughts?

Ford flou nders

The latest victim of globalisation, high taxes and excessive work place cost and regulation is the demise of the Ford motor car industry in Australia. Its management seems to have had enough, and they will wind up their operations in the next couple of years. Australia has plummeted from being the country it once was. Between 1788 and 1910, Australia was settled and the country developed from coast to coast. The waste areas were made to blossom as a rose, industry was forging ahead and we were a proud and independent nation, feeding ourselves and had a thriving manufacturing industry and exporting our products world wide. Since 1945, and our membership of the United Nations this nation has suffered one reverse after another. It is time for our leaders to show some genuine care for Australia, and make the right decisions to restore our once glorious place in the company of nations.

he golden arches are the most recognisable brand in the world. That’s why Penrith business owners were all ears when McDonald’s Australia CEO, Catriona Noble spoke about the McDonald’s re-branding at the Penrith Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Matters Luncheon last Friday. A success story herself, Ms Noble began her McDonald’s career at age 14, became one of the youngest store managers at 19

and in 2010, became CEO. Ms Noble said a major challenge has been rebuilding the brand from the “plastic” look and feel that people associated with McDonald’s to something better suited to the modern customer. “We weren’t being as relevant as we needed to be... we really needed to adjust to the times,” Ms Noble said. Ms Noble said that there was a strong focus on ensuring that all franchisees, managers and other “touch points” understood and held the same vision for the brand because, “it’s so important that people understand where you are going”.

n one month’s time, NSW stores will have to remove all tobacco products from public display but as part of World No Tobacco Day, the Cancer Council are encouraging stores to get it done sooner rather than later. From Monday, July 1, all tobacconists will be required to remove all tobacco products from the public eye. “The end of open cigarette displays will remove one more barrier for people who are trying to quit smoking,” said Rodney

An artist’s impression of what the proposed multi-storey development could look like.

Titovs, Penrith Cancer Council’s Community Programs Coordinator. “Ending this exemption sends an important reminder that cigarettes are a dangerous and deadly product.” As the Cancer Council celebrates World No Tobacco Day today (Friday, May 31) they are asking tobacconists to be proactive. “We know the tobacco industry can be notoriously good at fi nding loopholes in the system but we would encourage tobacconists to proactively prepare their shelves and customers for the new changes over the coming weeks,” he said.

R

esidents and Councillors have expressed concern about a proposal to build a multi-storey development in Glenmore Park. Stockland Development is looking to build 63 units and an associated car park on the corner of Bradley Street and Glengarry Drive in Glenmore Park, which concerned residents say is not in keeping with the area’s character. “I live within this area and I was led to believe that this area of Glenmore Ridge and Mulgoa Rise were to be a new exclusive area of the Penrith area with land prices showing how expensive this

area is,” said local, Suzanne Walker. “To put units right at the entrance of this ‘exclusive area’ I feel will make this area deteriorate at an alarming rate, and this area will turn into another St Marys or Mt Druitt.” At Council’s ordinary meeting on Monday night, Councillor Bernard Bratusa called for an emergency briefin g for Councillors on the issue and a meeting involving residents and developers. “Council must be mindful that residents have invested both their hard earned dollars and futures based on a lifestyle choice,” he said.

MAYOR’S NEWS MARK DAVIES

Bridge news I’m pleased the Nepean River Green Bridge looks set to go ahead, with a design that reflects what Council and our community wanted. The proposed $24 million pedestrian bridge will be an iconic, architecturally sophisticated structure that suits its signific ant location, but more importantly it will give walkers and cyclists a safer way to cross the river, and better link Emu Plains to Penrith. Council listened to residents and the rowing fraternity about what they wanted, and we worked closely with Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres, Transport for NSW and the RMS. The fi nal design meets all the recommendations put forward by Council – including that it should sit lightly in the landscape and maintain the river’s role as a world class competition and training venue. It will include a raised viewing platform for people to take in the beauty of our river and the Blue Mountains escarpment. Have a great weekend.

CASSANDRA O'CONNOR

he Roads and Maritime Services has provided Penrith City Council with an additional $1.2 million for shared-path construction works along the Great Western Highway between Kingswood and St Marys. In October 2012, Council received $1.5 million from the RMS under the NSW Bike Plan River Cities Program to start works on a footpath and bike path to connect Penrith and St Marys. Penrith Mayor, Mark Davies, said the additional funding will go towards an infrastructure link that has long been a priority for the community. “Th is shared use path is an important part of the infrastructure needed in this area, a growth area – with the Health and Education Precinct covering this region,” he said. “Council has provided in kind works including project management and design of around $500,000 so this additional funding from the State Government is welcomed.” State Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies, said the investment in sharedpath infrastructure would benefit local residents greatly. “We are trying to encourage people to live healthy lifestyles and also improve access to education facilities such as the TAFE and University of Western Sydney,” she said. The path also complements other

works being carried out in the Penrith region to improve access. Council has engaged consultants to prepare concepts and designs for links along Jane Street and Belmore Street in Penrith to Kingswood Railway Station. The consultants have also been requested to design a shared-use path

along the Great Western Highway, between River Road and Russell Street, Emu Plains, for the future program. Councillor Jackie Greenow has asked that the footpath, once completed, be named after disability activist, the late Rhonda Hopkins, who was instrumental in lobbying for the footpath.

Drama on the buses: Drivers worried about their safety

A

CASSANDRA O'CONNOR

n incident where a bottle was thrown through the window of a bus travelling on Pendock Road, Cranebrook, has sparked an outcry from bus drivers concerned about their safety. Police are investigating the incident, which occurred on Sunday, May 19 at about 11.20am. A spokesperson for Westbus said that drivers have operated local diversions to Routes 784 and 786 in Cranebrook since

Monday, May 20. There were further disruptions on Thursday morning when drivers briefly held a stop work meeting over concerns nothing had been done to improve their safety, however, an agreement has not been reached. “It is disappointing that one very small part of the community is spoiling it for the rest of the residents,” Penrith Police Crime Manager, Grant Healey said. “We are meeting with local stakeholders in the community to try to reach a solution but we need people to come forward with information.”

Man cops big fine s: A 32-year-old man appeared in Penrith Local Court this week after he was found to be in possession of a number of weapons and illicit drugs. Following a related investigation, police attended the premises where the man was residing. Police conducted a search of a garage on the property, where the man slept, and found a number of prohibited items. Police discovered a butterfl y knife hidden underneath a mattress, a replica pistol and an amount of cannabis in the garage. The man appeared before Penrith Local Court and plead guilty to possessing the unauthorised pistol, knife and cannabis. In relation to his possession of the pistol, the man was placed on a bond under Section 9 for 12 months and fi ned $750. For being in possession of the knife, he was fi ned $750 and for being in possession of the cannabis, he was fi ned $500. The court ordered all weapons and the illicit substance be destroyed. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

At The Courts

Fined and disqualified: A 19-year-old woman appeared before Penrith Local Court this week after she was discovered by police to be driving with a high range PCA. The provisional licence holder was pulled over earlier this year for the purpose of a random breath test when her driving attracted the attention of police. She was found to be driving with alcohol in her system and was taken to Springwood Police Station for a breath analysis. The court was told that the woman had been at a party earlier that night, had consumed an amount of alcohol and had left to drive a friend home, when she was pulled over. Taking into account the fact that the woman had completed the traffic offenders program, she was placed on a good behaviour bond under Section 9 for 12 months, fi ned $800 and was disqualified from driving for 21 months. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Behind the golden arches We go behind the scenes at Macca’s... and find ourselves in burger heaven

M

NATHAN TAYLOR

cDonald’s fans, including the die-hard obsessed ones like me, were treated to the ultimate tour last Saturday when Macca’s opened their doors for a sneak peek behind the scenes. Thanks to the best promotion in the history of promotions, I was able to go behind the scenes, behind the counter of one of the busiest and most successful McDonald’s restaurants in the country, Penrith Panthers. Upon arrival I was greeted by McDonald’s Operations Supervisor, Jenny Parfitt, who then led me along the journey of the wonderful world that is Macca’s. First stop was the deep fryer where I witnessed fast food’s best French fries cook away until crunchy and golden. Then I saw where all the magic happens – the burger making station. I have been a fan of the incredible McDonald’s burger range ever since I could say the word “Hamburglar”, so getting to see the steps taken to make that special culinary delight was truly amazing. My tour guide then practically made me leave burger heaven, so she could give me a lesson in drive-thru and how they pride themselves on being one of the fastest and most efficient in the country. My last stop had to be the ‘coolest’ yet – the famous McDonald’s fridge. I can recall visiting that same McDonald’s as a kid during a school

excursion and remember never wanting to leave the glorious but bitterly freezing walk-in fridge. It was still as pretty as ever – boxes upon boxes stacked up high with frozen McDonald’s goodness. I was only able to last 30 seconds in the fridge but let me tell you it was just about the best 30 seconds of my life. Following the tour, I got a run down on the exciting range of career opportunities McDonald’s has to offer. Ms Parfitt said McDonald’s opened their doors to allow people to get an insight into how Australia’s most popular fast food chain operates. “A lot of people don’t realise the systems and processes we do have in place and most people walk away quite pleased with what they see and a little bit surprised of what we do offer,” she said. “McDonald’s likes to be totally transparent in what we do and we want the general community to see that. People also see the various suppliers we use and the relationship that we have with them plus the different products we use.” Ms Parfitt hoped the tours would fin ally dispel those myths that have haunted McDonald’s for decades, like pig fat in the sundae mix and chokos in the apple pies. “By inviting people behind the front counter it shows we are not hiding anything, it’s all there for them to see and to make their own minds up,” she said. “We use good quality products, we treat our crew very well, there’s high morale within the crew teams and management teams, and we’re a business that likes to give back to the community.”

Our team took a behind the scenes tour of McDonald’s at Penrith Panthers last weekend.

Protect Yourself from Colds & Flu

W

inter is fast approaching. Whilst we ve been enjoying the warmth of a seemingly extended summer over the majority of autumn, the cold has started to infiltrate, felt mainly in the mornings. Apart from the welcome comforts of a warm blanket, a hot drink and a blazing fireplace, a less-than-welcome occurrence begins to show itself ‒ infections such as the common cold, flu, chest infections, cough, etc. Yes it s that time of the year again where infections such as flu or the common cold are regular occurrences and can impact not just our health, but our daily lives and activity as well. And so we think to ourselves, what can we do to protect ourselves? What could I take? Do I need a flu shot? Do I need antibiotics? As a Naturopath, I believe that prevention is the best way to avoid the unpleasantness of immune-based infections. So what do we have that s available to us to help build up our resistance to infections and give us a greater chance of preventing a common cold or flu? The following three important key factors can assist in regulating, improving and maintaining our immune system:

Friday, May 31, 2013

The Western Weekender

Probiotics:

26

80% of our immune system begins within our digestive system so it s vital to consider its state. Within our digestive tracts, an ongoing war between good bacteria and bad bacteria occurs. In a healthy gut, we have a certain level of bacteria, which is also known as our Gut Flora. A wellbalanced Gut Flora would comprise of around 80-85% beneficial bacteria (such as acidophilus) and around 15-20% of potentially harmful bacteria (such as E. coli and Salmonella). This ratio of good to bad is considered normal and can sustain a healthy digestive function, which in turn can support our immune system. • Unfortunately, Factors such as the overuse of antibiotics (which

they were the only constituents found within Echinacea that are effectively absorbed into the body when ingested orally, and therefore capable of promoting immune health.

can eliminate both bad and good bacteria), increased intake of highlyprocessed foods such as fast food, general stress and infective microorganisms from sources such as spoiled food can upset the balance within our Gut Flora • Therefore, the best way to shift the balance towards our good bacteria is through the consumption of extra good bacteria, which are known as probiotics. An effective probiotic supplement would comprise of two of the most researched and studied strains of good bacteria that populate our intestines. These are Lactobacillus acidophilus (which reside in our small intestines) and Bifidobacterium animalis lactis (which reside in our large intestines). Over the past 25 years, more than 100 studies have now been published, emphasising the role of both strains of good bacteria to support the health of our digestive system, which leads to supporting our immune system. • Probiotics are fantastic for boosting the immune systems of our kids, especially those who are prone to infections when attending school or day-care. Studies have now been conducted to show that regular probiotic use can potentially decrease absenteeism in from school and daycare. Probiotics have no flavour so they are easily mixed into food such as yoghurt (without sugar and artificial sweeteners) and juice.

Nature s Own Zinc & Vitamin C: Orange flavoured chewable tablets containing zinc gluconate and vitamin C

Zinc: • Zinc is extremely important in the overall function and maintenance of our immune system. Itplays a key role in the maturation our immune cells within a gland known as the Thymus Gland, which is located under our sternums. • Unfortunately, Zinc deficiency is quite common due to low amounts being found within our food due to poor levels in our soils, not to mention heavily-processed food such as junk food. If you suspect that you re Zinc deficient, our Naturopath can perform a quick Zinc Tally test to determine whether your Zinc levels are adequate or not. A typical physical sign of Zinc deficiency are white spots on your fingernails.

Andrographis: Andrographis is a traditional herb used in the system of medicine in India known as Ayurvedic Medicine. Its main use is for treating acute infections, or infections that have come on all of a sudden such as flu or the common cold. Several clinical trials have shown that Andrographis is beneficial for the treatment and prevention of infections such as the flu and common cold. Andrographis, when combined with Echinacea, gives you a powerful formula for winter!

•When selecting an ideal Zinc product, make sure that it s in the form of either Zinc Gluconate or Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, which are both well-absorbed forms of Zinc.

Echinacea root: • There are now several human studies that have confirmed Echinacea s role in modulating and supporting our immune function as well as reducing the duration of infections.

Inner Health Immune Booster for Kids has been clinically shown to reduce the frequency of colds and flu. Also, the number of days absent from childcare or school

• It s also important to note that the Alkylamides are primarily found within the roots of the Echinacea plant. Therefore, when looking for a highquality Echinacea product, always ensure that you re selecting a product that utilises the roots of the Echinacea plant, as well as having measurable levels of Alkylamides.

•The key substances that are found in Echinacea to support immune function are known as the Alkylamides.After extensive research, it was found that the Alkalyamides were not only the key constituents found to enhance immune health, but

Immune Defence contains echinacea and andrographis. As a preventative: 1 tablet per day To reduce the severity and duration of a cold: Take 1 tablet twice daily with food.

If you have any concerns about the health of your immune system, phone me on 0412 486 925 Cheers, Victor

Students from McCarthy with Michael Brosowski and Vi, a previous Hanoi street kid.

Spreading the message: Kids hear from eye-opening hero

M

KATHERINE TWEED

cCarthy Catholic College students had the rare opportunity to hear the inspiring story of a real-life hero who is striving to change the world. Michael Brosowski was fir st introduced to Vietnamese street kids in 2003 when he took up a lecturing position at a school in Vietnam. The Australian teacher found himself teaching English to street kids and came face to face with the truth about life for

these children. Many were forced into a life of slavery, sexual abuse and harassment; a fact that Mr Brosowski knew needed to stop. He founded the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, supporting Vietnamese children, and with the help of his team, led dangerous missions to rescue trafficked children and young women. “Michael was inspiring. It’s fantastic to understand Michael’s commitment to benefiting the lives of young Vietnamese,” said McCarthy Captain Antonio Auddino.

he NSW Blues will look to avenge seven years of pain when the 2013 State of Origin series gets underway this Wednesday night at ANZ Stadium. There’s been plenty of build-up already for this year’s series after 2012’s went right down to the wire with the Blues getting agonisingly close to an upset series win, only to lose to a Queensland field goal in Game III, 21 - 20. The Blues haven’t tasted victory since 2005 but many experts believe NSW, led by rookie coach Laurie Daley, have fi nally built a side that can challenge the dominance of Queensland. While this year’s NSW team posses plenty of experience across the park, they have also named three new faces to make their Origin debuts in the clash. Canberra Raiders bad boy Blake Ferguson has earned the ultimate reprieve after a controversial start to the season by getting a fi rst time call up on the wing. In-form Roosters five-eighth James Maloney has beaten out Sharks star and NSW incumbent Todd Carney to partner his Roosters teammate Mitchell Pearce in the halves.

Monster Sharks prop Andrew Fifita is the bolter for this year’s series, beating out Panthers prop Tim Grant and Tigers forward Aaron Woods for a bench spot. The Blues have already had their fair share of dramas this week with utility Kurt Gidley pulling out of Game I with a foot injury. Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds and Rabbitohs half John Sutton were called into camp for the injured Gidley, with one of them set to be picked to make their Origin debut. Meanwhile, Queensland have yet again put together another scarylooking side that will no doubt put the Blues to the test as they challenge for eight straight.

KATHERINE TWEED

talented local barista is ready to take her love of making coffee to the next level as she prepares to prove to the country that the best coffee can be found right here in Penrith. Melissa Hall, 21, has been making excellent coffees for her loyal customers at Muffi n Break Café, Westfield Penrith, for the past six years. She was selected from hundreds of Australian and New Zealander baristas as one of only six fi nalists to compete in the grand fi nal of the seventh annual Muffi n Break Barista Championships. Ms Hall will have just 15 minutes to prepare and serve 12 outstanding cups of coffee to a panel of judges – four espressos, four cappuccinos and four cups of an original signature beverage. She hopes that it will be her signature beverage, the ‘Tropical Piccolo’ that will score her a win for Penrith. “I love making coffee. I always have. I entered the competition last year and made it to the semi-fi nals so this year, I’m really revved to go all the way,” she said. “I think my signature beverage will get me across the line but I don’t want to reveal too much about it to the other baristas. The competition is truly tough this year!” A panel of judges will not only test the quality of her coffee but test her customer service and technical skills also. The grand fi nal will take place on June 4 and 5 at the FOODCO Training Academy in Sydney.

LAKESIDE RESTAURANT

I

f you want to hold a function that’s going to impress your family, friends or clients then it’s hard to go past one of the best and classiest function venues in Penrith, Lakeside Restaurant. Located nestled on a private island at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, Lakeside makes you feel that you are miles away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Doubling as a restaurant and function centre, Lakeside was reborn in 2007 when restaurateur and owner, Vince Capolupo, took over the business. Mr Capolupo saw oodles of potential in Lakeside and opened the restaurant with the view to servicing Penrith as well as providing an establishment where great food and great wines may be enjoyed in unique, pristine surroundings. Lakeside provides fi rst class dining and is the perfect location for a special function including a wedding, engagement or birthday party. Mr Capolupo said the location is one of Lakeside’s most appealing attractions. “We are located on top of the grandstand where diners can marvel in beautiful views of the surrounding lakes and Blue Mountains,” he said. “Exclusivity is also something unique to Lakeside. For instance if you are holding a 21st birthday party next weekend, there’d be nobody or nothing else on the island except for you and your party – so basically you have the whole island to yourself.” Lakeside boasts ample parking, high-level security and both indoor and outdoor areas. “You can be as loud as you want because we have no neighbours and also nobody can crash your party, which is always a good thing,” Mr Capolupo said. Lakeside have a number of standard packages available including buffet,

alternate and a la carte style, but they can also tailor a package that will suit your specific needs and budget. Mr Capolupo also runs the popular Café Whitewater at the Penrith Whitewater Stadium, now open seven days and is fully-licensed. Lakeside is also open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and for brunch Saturday and Sundays from 9am to 3pm. Bookings are essential. To book or for more information on menu options visit www. lakesiderestaurant.com.au or call 4729 3222. Lakeside Restaurant is located at Sydney International Regatta Centre, Gate A, Old Castlereagh Road, Penrith.

PENRITH WOMEN’S PROGRESSION BUSINESS Bijai Kumar

GCI result

O

ver several decades prominent writers such as the legendary urban thinker Jane Jacobs in the 1950’s and the more contemporary Richard Florida have focused on the rise of the “creative class” and its links in the reshaping of places and cities. Found in a variety of vocations from engineering to theatre, biotech to education, banking to marketing, the creative class refers to those in our workforce who have the skills and capacity to create and compete globally on the strength of knowledge. In the context of this power of knowledge and the competitive strength of places and cities Sydney is without doubt the symbol of Australia’s global success. Sydney’s success is derived from the very high concentration of knowledge intensive industries (KII), its skilled workforce and capacity to innovate; the key components of a creative place. The ANZSOG Institute of Government at the University of Canberra and the Commonwealth Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship have developed a Global Competitiveness Index (GCI) for Sydney City and some 43 local Council areas including Penrith. The GCI results are based on Census data from 2001 to 2011. Obviously, the City of Sydney ranks highest in 2011 with a GCI of 3.25, while Penrith ranks eight from the last with a very low GCI of -0.70. Next week I will explore further details of the GCI ranking, their implications and the challenges they pose for Penrith. Bijai Kumar is the CEO of the Penrith Business Alliance

Good or bad?

Budget review

C

apitalism has both strong opponents and proponents. Both agree though that it is a powerful force. But whether that force is good or bad is where the disagreement lies. Bill Gates is visiting Australia this week and has said that he is “a true believer in the power of capitalism to improve lives... It can play a central role in increasing living standards”. But he has also realised that “while the private sector does a phenomenal job meeting human needs among those who can pay, there are billions of people who ... go without”. So in other words, if there’s no perceived monetary profit to be made, the private sector is rarely interested. And when it comes down to basics, the reality is that for businesses to survive, they need paying customers. However, this does not ‘excuse’ businesses from using capitalism to benefit those who ‘can’t pay’. You can improve your local and/or global community via your business by: • Developing a strategy around giving. What issues does your business want to address? How does that fit into your business’ core values? • Getting alongside local charities and non-profit groups to fi nd out what their needs are. You may find that your time and expertise is more valuable than ‘throwing money’ at them. • Evaluating non-cash options. Are there products or services you can donate? Can you volunteer your staff based on your company’s unique skill set? Michelle Grice is the founder of Shel Design, a graphic design and web design company: www.sheldesign.com.au

S

o another Federal Budget announcement has come and gone, this time the 2013/2014 edition. As expected, it was rather tight for small business as we are still in quite a good position economy wise right at this time. I agree with Treasurer Wayne Swan when he said “jobs and economic growth would have been at risk if the government had slashed spending to achieve a surplus in the next two years”. But where is that surplus that was promised a couple of years ago? Surely the way our nation is moving was forecasted. Our nation’s jobless rate is expected to rise and economic growth to slump to below its long-term average in the coming year because our dollar value is so high. According to the federal Treasury, the pace of economic growth will slip to 2.75 per cent in the coming fi nancial year, below its long-term average of 3.25 per cent. For SME’s, the few things that will be good are: • $350 million has been set aside for a new Innovation Investment Fund to boost innovation and entrepreneurial activity. • Enterprise Solutions program given $29.4 million over the next four years. Th is will help SME’s in bids for government contracts. • $7.2 million has been set aside to help SME’s take advantage of the online economy. • $3.2 million over 15 years has been earmarked for the promotion and marketing of Australian start-up success stories.

The inspiring local group alone has already created an incredible 116 blankets this year and

are anticipating a whole lot more before 2013 is over and done with. “We meet together for one reason; to knit a square or sew squares into a quilt to be given to people all over the world and the local area who are cold or suffering,” said coordinator Jill Dowsett. “We make hundreds each year.” The group are always focused on the task at hand but each meeting is a good opportunity for those involved to get out of the house and socialise. “It is not just about knitting to help people, it is a social thing as well. It is an opportunity to meet up with friends they’ve made over the years,” Ms Dowsett said. “It’s easy to just stay at home and as you get

older, you need to build your social contacts up otherwise you get isolated. “One lady said that after coming to the Knit-In, she is smiling for the rest of the day.” Everyone is welcome to join the next Knit-In, no matter what skills they may possess. Who knows, you may just fi nd a hobby that changes your life. The community Knit-In meets on Monday, June 3, from 9.30am until midday. Morning tea is provided. We love to hear positive stories about seniors in our community. If you’ve got something for our seniors section, get in touch!

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO BE BONNYRIGG PLAZA’S

NEXT SHINING STAR?

OVER $5,000 IN PRIZES TO BE WON! It’s now time for the Bonnyrigg Plaza annual search for local talent. Make sure you enter for a chance to win $1500 first prize in both the Junior and Senior categories.

ast week my column concentrated on retirement becoming an active phase of life where many seniors devote themselves to volunteering. Th is week I am going to focus on two residents who have just been recognised for doing exactly that. Last week, Denis Byrne and Dennis Trevare were awarded a Chifle y Community Service Award. These awards acknowledge local volunteers who make extraordinary community contributions as part of National Volunteer Week. Denis Byrne volunteers as a bus driver for residents at Rochford Place retirement village – taking people who are no longer quite as mobile to the local shops and on other group outings. Denis, who is also a resident at the village, enjoys the hours spent helping others and the sense of community spirit. Similarly, Dennis Trevare is passionate about giving his time to build a better community. When he moved into Rochford Place 12 months ago he decided to start a community garden. Dennis tends to the garden’s broad range of herbs and vegetables and sells bundles of the fresh produce to other residents to enjoy for a small donation, which goes towards keeping the patch going.

Like Denis Byrne, Dennis was shocked to receive the recognition for his effor ts. “You always have a choice to be involved as much or as little as you like but getting involved makes the community a better place for everyone,” Dennis said. “When I moved to the village it seemed only natural to start up a community garden for everyone to enjoy. “It’s about contributing to the community and it’s also a great chance to keep fit. My wife and I have never been so happy.” Held from May 13 to May 19, National Volunteer Week is Australia’s largest celebration of volunteers. Today there are more than six million people volunteering annually in Australia, representing 36 per cent of the adult population. The Chifley Community Service Awards recognise the valuable contribution volunteers of all types provide by offering their time, skills and passion – continuing to demonstrate Australia’s proud culture of giving. As Denis and Dennis have discovered, the benefits of volunteering are endless and, the great thing is, you can often donate your time to doing something you are interested in. Congratulations to everyone in the community who received a Chifle y Community Service Award.

Refurbishment for memorial Collaborative effort ensures Rotunda will be restored before next ANZAC Day

A

CASSANDRA O'CONNOR

collaboration between all three levels of government will see the First World War Memorial Rotunda in Victoria Park completely restored before ANZAC Day next year. Penrith Council has committed $36,000, the State Government $34,000 and Federal Government $4,000 to refurbish the ceiling and outside walls of the rotunda. “The walls and ceiling are suffering from concrete cancer. With this money we can ensure that the rotunda continues to stand as a proud memorial,” St Marys RSL Secretary, Ted Fish said. “It is a National Heritage memorial, so it has to be hand washed rather than steam cleaned and there are special conditions to comply with for the refurbishment.” Mr Fish said that the work will start as soon as possible, and should be completed in time for ANZAC Day next year. Penrith Mayor, Mark Davies said that he was glad that Council had been able to work with the State and Federal Governments to fund the refurbishment. “The refurbishment of the rotunda is a priority for Council, due to its cultural and historical significance to the people of Penrith,” he said. MP for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies said that it was an important project for her and the NSW Government. “The memorial stands as a tribute to the fallen and a constant reminder to us all of the tragic cost of our freedom,” she said.

DOGS RULE

Your Stars: We know what’s in store for you!

Come and see the famous. Wonderdogs at Erskine. Park next month.

David Stein: Keeping you fit and healthy

M Have we lost compassion?

ost dogs can do a couple of tricks; they can sit on command, lay down and some can even roll over but until you see The Wonderdogs in action, you won’t believe the amazing things man’s best friend can do. Local residents have the opportunity to see The Wonderdogs in action at the Dogs NSW ‘Dogs on Show’ on Saturday, June 15, at the Bill Spilstead Centre for Canine Affairs, Erskine Park. The dogs will be joined by celebrity vet, Dr Katrina Warren and sponsored by Rose-Hip Vital Canine, as they perform tricks and training shows to encourage the local community to get active and take care of their pets. “We are thrilled to be at Dogs on Show

together with Rose-Hip Vital Canine. The day is a fun day out for the family and is about enhancing that special bond with your dog,” Dr Warren said. “Maintaining the health of our dogs is always top of mind for owners and partnering with Rose-Hip Vital Canine for this event will enable us to share that message. The audience will have the opportunity to meet the Wonderdogs, see their talents and get a picture with us at the Rose-Hip Vital Canine stand.” The team of meticulously trained chocolate and white Border Collies are no strangers to putting on a good show and demonstrating their amazing talents. They are often recognised from their fi lm and television roles as well as the live shows that

they perform. They are also key competitors in agility and training arenas with owner and trainer. ‘Dogs on Show’ is set to offer all dog and animal lovers a great day out for local families and their dogs where they can watch or get involved in many events including Jack Russell Terrier racing, obedience, agility and herding demonstrations, Dancing with Dogs, junior handling, a colour pageant of breeds and more. The public event will be open from 9am until 5pm for all ages and will highlight the many sports and fun you can enjoy with your dog, the advantages of owning a purebred dog as well as the many responsibilities that come with owning a dog. - Katherine Tweed

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Property and family issues will be playing a huge part in your life. You may be in the throes of planning some changes to your existing home, a move or the purchase of an investment property; either way you will be excited about the prospect of having something new to challenge you. Opening up your home to friends and family will be rather enjoyable, and you will see relatives and friends you don’t always get to spend time with.

You have a rather hectic schedule ahead of you, which will involve several short trips, returning heaps of emails and dealing with a non-stop ringing phone. The next few weeks are an excellent time to challenge yourself mentally as you will enjoy exercising your mind and time spent in stimulating company will make you come alive. Th is is the ideal time to address an issue with a loved which has become a no-go zone.

The next few weeks are ideal to talk to your accountant or bank manager about improving your fi nances and consolidating your position for future growth. Golden opportunities are bound to present themselves to improve your cash flow and whatever you do don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Chances like these don’t always come around, so don’t let them slip through your fi ngers. Be open to all new opportunities.

CANCER

Mercury is moving through Cancer making you very goal orientated and fuelling your ambition to get to the top. You’re determined to be noticed, and you’ll do whatever you can to achieve your dreams. Th is is a very good time to sell your ideas because you are at your most charming. Don’t underestimate yourself as you are more talented than you give yourself credit for. Other people are certainly prepared to give you the respect you deserve.

You need to draw on your intuition and instincts rather than try and work things out rationally. You may also feel like spending more time alone, especially if you have a relationship issue to work out or your energy levels are low. Use this quiet time to fi nd out more about yourself and any hidden agendas or motivations that you might have. Walks by the sea, listening to music and any kind of therapeutic activity will uplift you.

Mercury will be moving through the area of your chart devoted to team effort, friends, and acquaintances, so you can confident ly look forward to lots of good advice and support. Hopefully you are not too proud to accept the counsel of others and will take it in the spirit in which it is given. If you work as part of a team you’ll be in your element as this is defi nitely a time for cooperation and motivating everyone to do their best.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

The focus is on partnerships and relationships, therefore you need to take on board the fact that you won’t have everything on your own terms. There’s absolutely no point in digging your heels in if you have a difference of opinion with others as this will only make things more diffic ult. You’ll stand a much better chance of things going your way if you’re willing to listen to what others have to say and try to accommodate some of their wishes.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

Mercury is moving through the area of your chart devoted to foreign affairs, further education, legal matters and personal beliefs, so all kinds of interesting developments in these areas are likely. Be open minded to new things and willing to learn at this time and you won’t regret it. Make yourself popular by being warm and friendly and showing just how personable you are. You have a lust for adventure so this the time to travel.

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

Relationships receive a huge boost and they’ll benefit in more ways than one from the current planetary setup. Getting on with others, especially those younger than you or who have a youthful outlook will be effortless. On the professional front, you can look forward to greater cooperation between you and others, which is good news if you’re working as part of a team. You’re feeling highly passionate and your partner will need to be prepared!

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

With so much activity in your partnership sign you’ll be looking good, feeling good and ready to explore new possibilities. You can fi nally push forward with all that is important to you, but that doesn’t mean you have carte blanche to be selfish. From here on in you have a chance to be more in control of your emotions and life. You are certainly going to be irresistible so why not let your hair down and go out and have fun.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

You’re feeling revved up and energised, ready to throw yourself into whatever comes along. Someone close to you could call on your help, in which case you’ll be only too happy to give them a hand. Being productive and of service will make you feel good about yourself, so go all out to make yourself available. Your powers of concentration are on top form and you’re able to easily switch off from what’s happening around you.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

Now is a time to reflect on your fi nancial situation and make sure you have your money matters in order. It would be useful to visit an accountant or fi nancial advisor for some additional guidance. Now is also a good time to consider your friendships and ensure that you are giving all your close friends the attention and support they deserve as they may not be reaching out for help, but will require it in the coming weeks.

STAYING HEALTHY

Cold, flu or hay fever?

by Elisha Stein

Get your kids active

W

ith the cold weather coming this week, it really feels like winter is just around the corner. As soon as it cools down suddenly, I know this will mean more cases of colds and flu. However, it’s easy to confuse whether you have a cold or flu or if it’s hay fever. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is normally only considered during spring and summer, known as the ‘allergy season’. However, research is now showing that hay fever is now almost as common ‘out of season’, during autumn and winter. The symptoms of hay fever include sneezing, itchy nose and eyes, watery and red eyes, blocked nose or an itchy and sore throat. All of these are very similar to a cold. It’s important to know the difference as you need to treat each quite differently. With children it’s more difficult to determine if their symptoms are that of a cold or hay fever. Th is makes it hard to decide if the child is contagious and whether they should go to school. As hay fever symptoms can also be very disruptive to a good night’s sleep, a child’s performance at school can also be compromised if the hay fever is not treated. Allergies are not contagious, and while they may make your child feel unwell, they can be treated simply with a non-drowsy antihistamine. There are children-specific products for allergic rhinitis such as Children’s Telfast and Zyrtec that can be taken from as young as two-years-old. Aerius and Claratyne can be taken from 12-months-old for allergic rhinitis. A cold or flu will have similar symptoms to hay fever, but often the symptoms are much more severe. For example, the throat will be itchy with allergies, where as it will be sore and inflamed with a cold. Also, a cold or flu may have fevers and general body aches.

KEEPING FIT by David Stein

Take the brakes off

W

e all now being healthy involves movement and many people enjoy moving so much they even motivate others to get moving too. If you have ever thought of doing your bit to get kids up and moving there is a great government website you should check out. It’s www.ausport.gov.au and it outlines the Active After-School Communities program (AASC). From the site: Be part of a national project that gets kids moving! Around Australia, 150,000 kids have been jumping, throwing, catching, running, dancing, swimming, cycling, climbing, kicking, rowing, skiing, somersaulting... thanks to the Active After-school Communities program. You can be part of this program by becoming a community coach at your local school or out of school hours care service. The Australian Sports Commission’s Active After-School Communities (AASC) program aims to engage traditionally non-active primary school-aged children by providing free sport and other structured physical activity programs in the after-school timeslot at over 3,200 schools and out of school hours care services across Australia. The AASC program has already trained over 30,000 community coaches who run a huge variety of activity programs across the country. These coaches are students, club coaches, teachers, parents, brothers, sisters, retirees, community members, professional athletes and volunteers. If that’s got you thinking you might be interested in, check it out, you’ll be setting an example for kids right now and in the future.

H

ere is a quick experiment I got from Alwyn Cosgrove. Stand up and hold a single dumbbell out to your right side, as you would in the fi nishing position of a lateral raise. What muscles are working? Obviously, it’s your right deltoid among a few other shoulder muscles. But think about how your torso stays upright with that dumbbell hanging out in space. Your centre of gravity is off, so something besides your right deltoid must be working pretty hard to keep you from leaning over. In this case, it’s your left oblique. It’s working to stabilise your spine, allowing your right deltoid to lift that weight and hold it out there away from your body. Now imagine that the oblique on your left side is weak, or recently injured. You wouldn’t be able to lift that dumbbell, since the muscles charged with protecting your spine aren’t prepared to do their job. Your body cares more about the health and safety of your spine than it does about the size of your shoulders. Your best strategy, then, is to rehabilitate and strengthen your obliques, thus releasing the brake on your muscle development. Stomping on the accelerator by increasing the volume of your shoulder training wouldn’t do any good, and might make things considerably worse. Let’s assign some hypothetical numbers, and say your right deltoid can lift 30 pounds for 10 reps. To achieve overload and force growth, we have to train the deltoid to do one of two things: lift 31 pounds for 10 reps, or 30 pounds for 11 or more reps. But let’s say your core muscles can only handle 29 pounds for 10 reps. A bodybuilder might say the solution is to fi nd a way to overload the delts while bypassing the core. Ultimately, the strategy is counterproductive; it only exacerbates the imbalance. I’d take the opposite approach, and do everything I could to release the brakes.

oodbye summer skin, it was nice knowing you… hopefully we can be reunited in a few months but until then, I guess I will have to welcome back my pale winter skin. It’s funny how getting a tan is so unhealthy; I have always thought that people with a tan look healthier, have better looking skin and have a certain ‘glow’ that they carry with them. Maybe a tan is associated with good health because pale skin is often a sign of illness or perhaps it is just because everyone feels better when the sun is out! Either way, despite the obvious risks of skin cancer and early aging that comes with a tan, there is nothing nicer than having that summer glow. If only there was a way to have a healthy summer glow, risk free, all year round – Oh wait! There is! Time to thank the beauty gods (or a man in a lab-coat somewhere) for inventing the fake tan! We no longer have to venture to a salon or a beautician; we can apply a fake tan (and a good looking one at that) at our own homes, at hardly any cost. There are three main types of fake tan; the instant tan, the gradual tan and the tanning moisturiser. Instant tans can come as a lotion, a mousse or a spray and are very easy to apply. For a streak-free tan I always use a mousse. My favourite is Le Tan Fast Tan instant foaming mousse – it is easy to apply, natural looking and isn’t sticky at all. Gradual tans come as gels or lotions and generally develop in around four hours – a lot quicker than a real tan but great if you are getting ready to go on a night out. Tanning moisturisers do not give you as much colour. I fi nd that my Le Tan Daily Glow works best in the in-between seasons or in-between fake tans.

Fertility – the last word

Compassion

he previous three articles have given some insights into the making of a fertile couple. Th is is the fi nal instalment in this set of mini lessons. There are many things that can be done but they would take up a whole book. Surprise, I have written 90 per cent of such a book and it should be available via Amazon within a few months. One thing that clinical trials show is that if the mother is overweight or obese, reducing fat mass by just five per cent will dramatically increase your chances of conception. Now there are weight loss programs and there are Fat Loss Programs and there are programs that show you how to lose the fat for life. Choose well as most weight loss programs do not reduce fat so you will put the weight back on when you start eating your normal diet. It is a matter of education and logic. Simply taking a powder and some bars is not a healthy way to lose weight nor is it a program to keep it off for life. A good Naturopath can help you do just that, increase your chances of fertility and get the fat off for life. Any program that claims that you can achieve fat loss without some weight bearing exercise is misleading you. You may lose weight but it is unlikely that you will lose fat – and isn’t that what you want? You don’t have to do a lot of exercise but you do have to do some. Also it is not just about calories in and calories out as some would have you believe. What you need is a program that works so well that at the end you are happy to continue for the rest of your life, and your family will too, and not think that they are on a diet. You will not get that out of a box or tin. I hope that the last four articles have been useful in helping you achieve your goal of conceiving a baby.

re we a compassionate society? Some would readily say “yes”. But many have observed that perhaps, we have become harder, more turned inwards and focused on ourselves, having lost our sense of compassion. A recent article in a major Sydney newspaper highlighted some of these issues, commenting how charitable groups are fi nding it harder to raise money and fi nd volunteers to get help for those in need. Yet compassion and care for others must be at the heart of who we are. The Bible’s Gospel of Matthew tells us how when Jesus saw the crowds “he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Jesus perfectly modelled care and compassion to those who were lost and struggling in life. He showed kindness to the powerless and concern for the weak. He showed mercy to those who came to him, burdened with guilt and seeking forgiveness and healing. He showed pity to the vulnerable and to those who were cut off from the society around them. Jesus showed sympathy and consideration to those who were in need and overwhelmed with life. He listened to those who were under pressure. He did not turn them away. In the end, Jesus laid down his life. Th is is how Jesus showed compassion to you. By dying on a cross and rising to new life, Jesus acted to care for your biggest need; offering you forgiveness and new life, a fresh start with God. Th is kindness and compassion towards us, in turn, should become the model for how we relate to others. In other words, we show care and compassion towards others because God fi rst showed it to us.

Lorraine Pozza had her well placed in the running line all the way and she came home best to nose out Shez all Magic. Leading Lavross put up a truly strong performance, taking out the fi fth. He sat three wide for almost the entire journey but under the urgings of Lauren Panella he kept coming and got home at the juicy odds of $19.20. The long priced ones kept coming when Adcoke ($10.30) outstayed the opposition to take out race six for driver Gavin Fitzpatrick. Yankee Hustler ($11.50) gave Glen McElhinney his double in race seven. Attorney Stride at $1.30 gave favourite backers some respite, winning the last. Driver Luke McCarthy let him stride after the bell and he dashed away from the opposition winning easily.

Rain and wind were the order of the night last Thursday but our sponsors, the Penrith RSL and the RSL Sub Branch were able to stay warm and dry in our Sky Lounge and Level One lounge. Hez Got The Nod (odds of $2.10) gave Glen McElhinney the fi rst leg of a double and trainer Karen Crouch the fi rst of a treble in winning the fi rst race. Our Amazing Art ($3.10) driven by Lauren Panella came home strongly from midfield to take out the second event giving Lauren the fi rst leg of a driving double. Short priced favourite Mister Chow ($1.90) carried his good form from Young into race three. Whispering Lass at $15.30 made fancied runners look ordinary in the fourth event. Driver Amanda Turnbull

alone! He has a very talented midfield that needs to start delivering him the ball with consistency. There were glimpses of how good the midfield is going to be in a couple of years with some very fast and clean ball movement through the centre of the ground. Giles had his work cut out for him, having to ruck against Cox and Natainui on his own for most of the match, with O’hAilpin used sparingly. The Giants weren’t all bad, almost winning the fi rst quarter, but again they showed their youth, fi nishing with a goalless fourth quarter. Th is week GWS travel to Melbourne to face Carlton at Etihad Stadium. Carlton have had won their last two games, but not by huge margins.

It was another beautiful day for football at Skoda Stadium on Saturday, when the Giants took on the West Coast Eagles. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot else positive about Saturday for GWS, again losing by a huge 100 point margin to fi nals fancies, West Coast. In front of a crowd of just over 6,000, the Giants faced the daunting task of playing against All Australians Nic Naitanui, Dean Cox and Darren Glass, as well as the current leader of the goal kicking table, Josh Kennedy. How would they be able to cover them all, especially when Dean Brogan was a late withdrawal? The answer is they did try but couldn’t sustain the effor t. Again Jeremy Cameron shone up front, kicking three goals, but he cannot do it

Penrith President Terry Simmons was elated with the number of members that attended the club’s Presentation Night last Saturday. Terry welcomed myself from the RNSWBA, Neil Workman the Acting NDBA President, and guest speaker Cameron Curtis assisting with the presentation of last year’s championship awards. Terry praised and congratulated all Zone/District and Club winners and after a delightful meal he imitated the Oscars with a review on each nomination for Clubman of the Year, which went to Don (Dizzy) Davis. Terry nominated Neville Ireland for the RNSWBA Merit Badge, the Tie Bars to Bob Dhone and Dave Cook and the NDBA badge went to Joe Scott. Everything on the night was well done. St Marys RSL Bowlers held their annual ANZAC Memorial Trophy and what a perfect weekend for bowls. It is a tournament for all members of St Marys RSL Bowlers with prize monies

amounting to $3,800 in total. The eventual winners were: Skip- Billy Tervit (on a count back), Th ird- Lawrie O’Connell (by 1 shot), Second- Cathy Kivilcim (by 10 shots), and Lead- Dot Pickworth (by 5 shots). Coming into the last round it was interesting to note that in the tussle for winning skip there were only two shots separating five players adding spice to the last game. Congratulations to the winners and all the combatants who took place in such a fun fi lled weekend. The Penrith team of Ron Pittaway, Gary Adnum and Trent Whittingham defeated Gavin Holburn, Mick Devine and Neil Baudinet (Glenbrook Panthers) to win the NDBA Triples Championships at Glenbrook Panthers last Sunday. Good to see Ian Henricksen (Ambo) back after his battle with his health.

Local rivals go head to head: Emus host day of celebration

Panthers player Blake Austin joins Academy players on stage at their presentation night.

Important pathway: Academy acknowledges its players

W

NATHAN TAYLOR

estern Sydney Academy of Sport’s junior representative rugby league sides had their hard work acknowledged this week at their annual presentation evening. While their SG Ball and Harold Matthews sides failed to take home the title this year, there were plenty of positive signs from quite a number of young players. “The Academy program is a very

important development pathway we have at Panthers,” said Penrith Panthers NRL boss, Phil Gould. “It’s never too late in your career if you have the desire and work ethic to keep pushing forward and persevering. “If you’ve got the heart for it and the desire for it and it’s something you really want to do, then do not be deterred.” Panthers prop Tim Grant and utility Blake Austin were also on hand to share some of their advice. “Just be hungry and humble and the chance will come if you take it with both hands,” Grant said.

The Emus scored a spectacular try last weekend. Photo: Nardia Sly.

he Penrith Emus will celebrate rugby out west this Saturday with ‘Back to Penrith Day’. The event, which will feature a night time Polynesian extravaganza, coincides with the highly-anticipated clash between western Sydney rivals Penrith and Parramatta. “It’s a true battle of the west with plenty of rivalry between the two sides,” Penrith Emus coach, Sateki Tu’ipulotu said. “There are a lot of Polynesians playing

and there’s been a few guys over the years who have played with both sides.” All of Penrith’s players past and present as well the club’s fan base are invited to attended the after match function, which begins at 7pm. There will be a huge Polynesian feast on offer plus a DJ spinning the decks as well as karaoke. Last weekend the Emus got agonisingly close to their fi rst win of the Shute Shield season, going down 28-21 to West Harbour in a thriller. Penrith take on Parramatta at Nepean Rugby Park this Saturday, June 1 at 3pm.

he may only be 15-years-old but a Penrith junior cricketer has already caught the eye of Australian cricket talent scouts. Amy Edgar only started playing cricket fiv e years ago and in that time has made huge inroads on the female cricketing scene. Last week 19 young players from around the country, including Edgar, were selected by a Cricket Australia (CA) Youth Selection Panel to be part of the 2013/14 Under-18 Female Talent Camp Squad. The squad will meet at CA’s Centre of Excellence for a talent camp in Brisbane in September. The talent camp will expose the 19 players to the national system for the fi rst time and will see them undergo a range of tests, specialist skills training, psychological profi ling, education sessions as well as matches, under the management of specialist coaches. “I was very excited and surprised to get selected,” a thrilled Edgar told the Weekender this week.

Edgar, a batter, said she’s put in plenty of hard work in the nets over the years to get to her level and is looking forward to picking up some handy advice from some of the nation’s best coaches. “At the camp, I’m hoping to learn plenty of new cricketing skills as well as important life skills and the different aspects of the game,” she said. Edgar is also a member of the NSW Under-18 team, and according to her state coach, Hamish Solomons, is one of the best rising female athletes playing the game. “Amy joined my NSW side fairly young but her performances have warranted her selection,” he said. “She’s a very strong batswoman and her performances in the recent Under-15’s Women’s Championships were outstanding with the bat, where she got a lot of runs.” Just last week, Cricket Australia announced a significant pay rise to the country’s elite female cricketers, further emphasising the importance and popularity of the women’s form of the game around Australia.

Talented cricketer, Amy Edgar.
