Nanjing Night Net

BERRY-Shoalhaven Heads veteran Ted Street lived out every bowlers dream by taking a hat-trick on Saturday.

The skipper achieved the feat during his side’s nine-wicket win over Bay and Basin at Zealand Oval.

Street took 3/15 from four overs as Berry dismissed Basin for 138, with Lachlan Woolley (2/25) and Peter Richardson (2/18) also doing some damage.

The only two to get going for Basin were Marcus Lamb (50 not out) and Joe Parkes (40).

Berry made light work of the total, polishing off the runs in 27 overs, for the loss of just one wicket.

Richard Ingle (71 not out) and Peter Richardson (51 not out) did the job with the bat for Berry.

Over at the Added Area, Nowra Green had their 10th consecutive win in their top of the table clash with Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen.

Nowra made a big total of 6/257 from their 40 overs, with Gary Smallwood (89) and Geoff Rumble (88 not out) scoring the bulk of the runs.

Michael Mills was the pick of the bowlers for Ex-Servos with 3/34.

Ex-Servos were gallant in their reply, but eventually fell 15 runs short when they were bowled out for 242.

William Economos Continued his good form with the bat with 69, Scott Cusack made 48, while Michael Mills remained not out on 33.

Geoff Rumble led the way with the ball for Nowra with 4/29, while Justin Rumble and Cody Smallwood each took two wickets.

The match between Ulladulla United and Nowra White at Ulladulla Sports Park was washed out.

Father/son team our sporting heroes

Brett (left) and Hamish Dobie stop at the Naracoorte Caltex (formerly Scott Petroleum) depot in Naracoorte to collect their Scott Petroleum Sportsperson Of The Year award from Caltex commercial business manager Troy Henschke earlier this week.FATHER and son team Brett and Hamish Dobie have collected the Scott Petroleum Sportsperson Of The Year award.
Nanjing Night Net

Team Dobie was the October Sportsperson Of The Month following their great showing at the Bulk Nutrients Elite Sidecar Motocross Titles in Horsham.

The team finished with a third placing and a potential European trip as a result.

As winners of the Sportsperson Of The Year the Dobies received a $100 voucher from Scott Petroleum Naracoorte (now Caltex).

“It’s good recognition,” Brett said, thanking Scott Petroleum for the sponsorship.

“It (sidecar motocross) is not such a high-profile sport.”

The sidecar season is over for now with the Dobies taking a well-earned break, but they expect to fire back up in the new year.

In the last weekend of April the sidecar spectacular is on in Naracoorte, a popular event which the Dobies are expected to feature highly at.

Hamish said he and his dad travel a lot for the sport and appreciate any help they can get.

“We are always looking for any sponsors ( big or small) that would like to jump on board and support our racing seasons,” he said.

“We usually race all over SA and western Victoria, and also if the chance to go overseas to race comes our way will be chasing some sort of help as it will be an expensive trip!”

Macarthur shines in HSC results

State-toppers: Reynard Tan (left) and Isaac Jones, of Hurlstone Agricultural High School, at the Locomotive Workshop at Australian Technology Park Eveleigh where they were awarded their First in State certificates. Picture: Geoff JonesIt’s a fiercely fought battle of the minds, a test of knowledge and mental strength; the Higher School Certificate is New South Wales’ final high school examination, and shines a light on the best and brightest young minds in the state.
Nanjing Night Net

Yesterday, Education Minister Adrian Piccoli presented 105 students with First in Course certificates, congratulating the NSW students that topped the state in their courses.

Macarthur was represented in this prestigious group by three students — Hurlstone Agricultural High School’s Reynard Ezekiel Tan and Isaac James Jones, and Mount Carmel Catholic High School student Stephanie Penales.

The three students respectively achieved the highest marks in Agriculture, Primary Industries Examination and the hotly contested Ancient History.

‘‘I’m glad all the work throughout the year paid off,’’ Ms Penales of Eagle Vale told the Advertiser.

‘‘It doesn’t always feel like it will [pay off] at the time.’’

Ms Penales studied Pompeii and Herculaneum and Ancient Egypt in her Ancient History class, her favourite topic being a profile of Akhenaten, and hopes to major in ancient history or archaeology at the University of Sydney.

Reynard, 17, has a keen interest in Agriculture and studied a lot of past papers to achieve his state-topping result.

‘‘When I walked out of the exam, I had a pretty good feeling about it,’’ he said.

‘‘I plan to do a bio-technology degree at university, hopefully at UTS [the University of Technology Sydney].’’

Reynard’s classmate and friend Mr Jones, 18, didn’t feel as confident following his Primary Industries exam, and was excited to learn he’d achieved the highest result.

‘‘The girl that topped the state last year was from Hurlstone as well, and we were taught by the same teacher,’’ the Bradbury local said.

‘‘Throughout the year he said I was on the same level as her, so I was hopeful I might get First in Course.’’

Aside from being classmates and friends, Reynard and Mr Jones were also both members of the Hurlstone Christian Fellowship.

Mr Jones, who attended Bradbury primary school, said: ‘‘I had a good time at school, I loved my school and I feel lucky to have gone there — there are a lot of people that are not that lucky.’’

Front Row: Moriah Hore, Sophia Power, Elizabeth Jackson, Chloe Maidment, Miah Kellett. RECENTLY the girls at Foster Public School competed in the Primary School knockout football competition.
Nanjing Night Net

This year a record 374 schools entered into the competition. The girls played 9 games culminating in finishing, the runners up to Avalon Primary School.

Along the way the girls became, Manning Hunter and NWNSW champions. The girls came from behind on two occasions to beat teams causing a boilover in defeating Caves Beach in the Hunter Final whom had not had a goal scored against them in regular time in two years. The girls won 3-1.

The team’s goalkeepers were outfield players but both shared the load without any dramas, well done Elizabeth and Kyra. The backline protected the goalie magnifically and prior to the finals had conceded one goal in eight games with Rosie and Ellie the rocks in central defence being supported by Indi, Layla, Eva and Elizabeth.

Our midfield was controlled by Chloe who did a wonderful job linking the back to the front with great distribution. She was supported with great vigor from Mariah and Sophia up front. The’ Simon’ family Indi, Kyra and Akaysha were in charge of the attack and did a fine job with Mia chipping in for the odd goal. Eden was the versatile, Miss Fixit playing in numerous positions and slipping in perfectly where ever she playedAnd a big thankyou to Brook who filled in for the final two games.

I would also like to thank Tuncurry Forster’s coaching director. Johnathon Newman for assistance during the Finals.

Arts council’s grant success

Cheers to good news: Sue Lee Newman, Lis Tuck, Meiling Yuen, Lyndal Goetz, Amy Hubers, Natasha Topsig,Krissa Wilkinson, Deb Murrel, Marita Dalhausen, Trish Crick, Councillor Lisa Intemann and Claudia Richardson (Front) Susan Ashton and Lyn Gallagher.THE members of the Wauchope Community Arts Council have 10,000 reasons to celebrate following their successful application for a Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Community Grant for The Meeting Place.
Nanjing Night Net

According to Arts Council spokesperson Krissa Wilkinson, the funding will allow significant improvements to be made to the much-loved Wauchope Community Arts Hall.

Plans include a large pergola and roof which will provide cover to the entry ramp, plus an outdoor seating area and mosaic wall.

“The criteria for the grants program describes place making as the act of creating places that are inviting, bursting with activity and allow people to connect with each other, and our Arts Hall is certainly all that and more,” Krissa said.

The group has been allocated $10,000 as part of the Council’s Place Making Program, which funds projects that create vibrant public places valued by their communities. “We have been involved in creative place making through our regular performances and community events for more than eighteen years now, albeit with limited space and resources.”

“This latest project will animate and rejuvenate the Arts Hall and streetscape, improve safety and provide a space for arts hall patrons to gather, to celebrate and be inspired.”

A broad cross-section of the Wauchope community is set to support the project and construction staff and students from Wauchope TAFE will build The Meeting Place.

“The local community already has a wonderful sense of ownership to the place, which this project will add to and strengthen,” said Krissa.

“It is also significant that Wauchope TAFE will be working with us on this grassroots initiative. Each of our organisations have spent decades building social capital and community development”.

Construction of The Meeting Place will begin in April and events will resume in May with a touring theatre production of Bijou by acclaimed actor Chrissie Shaw, set in a Parisian cafe/bar in the 1930s, and audiences will be invited to make the show an occasion by dressing in 1930s clothing.

Thomson impressed with local gardens

GARDENING: Sophie Thomson with Merridy Briese at her Cleve gardening workshop.
Nanjing Night Net

GARDENING Australia presenter Sophie Thomson visited Eastern Eyre last week to speak to people about issues they might face in their gardens.

Visiting Cowell, Cleve and Kimba, Ms Thomson ran a series of workshops, covering topics like sustainability and pests and diseases.

She said the main focus of the workshops was talking about the principals of sustainable gardening and how people could achieve it.

“A lot of people think by choosing the organic mulch they are making a wise choice and in many ways it is, but to get that out here gives it a large carbon footprint,” she said.

“What I talk about is how gardeners can make more local choices, so if they are looking for mulch you could local source pea straw for your garden.”

Ms Thomson, who also visited for the field days earlier in the year, said gardeners in this region in particular were “some of the best”.

“People here garden in spite of all the challenges they face, this is some of the hardest land to work with and people are doing really well.”

She said the drier weather and water restrictions had also seen a lot of people become wiser in their plant choices as well as with watering.

“People here have become innovative and that is because they have had to, if you don’t have the water you have to make smart decisions about what to put into your garden,” she said.

Ms Thomson said she had seen a rise in interest with a lot of younger people getting involved with gardening, especially produce gardening.

“We had a quite young group come to the Cleve night session and that was good to see.”

“The younger generations are definitely showing interest in the produce side of gardening, and I guess I try to talk about things they can do to make that successful.”

She said a part of her workshop was talking about making the right decisions so people could get the best from their gardens.

“Things like attracting beneficial insects into your garden, like bees is important – if you don’t have them in your garden then they aren’t going to get what they want out if it.”

“It is about education really, learning about these things will hopefully give people the gardens they want and they will continue to enjoy it.”

Letters for Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Gorse
Nanjing Night Net

OVER the years there have been many ideas put forward to get rid of gorse.

The latest is to release a particular type of moth larvae in the Pipers River area.

The type of moth isn’t mentioned, so hopefully when fully grown they will only lay their eggs on gorse bushes.

Perhaps the University of Tasmania’s biological control unit could also come up with something to get rid of hawthorn as well, it is almost as bad as gorse.

Worse, in fact if you have a hawthorn hedge on your property, because the landowner is not allowed to remove it according to Tasmanian law.

Tasmanians ought to send all the gorse, hawthorn, rabbits, starling, sparrows and blackbirds back to the UK.

— JOHN DENNE, Longford.

Immigration

I HAVE several overseas born friends unable to obtain Australian citizenship.

This despite the fact that they are all tertiary educated, in good health, relatively well heeled and with no criminal history apart from the odd parking fine.

One of them has worked in Tasmania on a 457 visa as a senior health professional for several years.

Although her efforts have improved the quality of many folk’s lives immeasurably, our department of immigration feel that she is not a suitable person to be granted permanent residence; no reason given. Contrast this then with the record of Man Haron Monis and the ease in which he was firstly allowed to enter, then stay in Australia, and it’s clear that those responsible for undertaking a sensible migration program to this country are spectacularly out of touch with the wants and needs of local communities.

— DAVE ROBINSON, Newstead.

George Town hub

WE have had the absolute pleasure to look through the new “Hub” in George Town.

This is a fantastic building and every one involved in the construction of the complex should stand very proud.

It will be a great asset to any member of the community that choose to use the facility.

It is a magnificent addition to our town.

MARGARET AND HARVEY GIBBONS, George Town.

Fracking

THERE’S enough scientifically-backed evidence available now to show fracking is a seriously bad idea on many levels – not least economically.

It really is time all members of the Hodgman government acknowledge Tasmania’s environment is our state’s greatest economic asset.

The rest of the world can see it, but for some bizarre reason our governments do not.

Tasmania has won, or been highly placed, in countless tourism awards this year.

A sensible and economically responsible government would be seeking ways to further capitalise on these awards, and promote what Tasmania clearly does so outstandingly well.

— ANNE LAYTON-BENNETT, Swan Bay.

Expenses

THERE was some publicity recently given to the cost of refurbishing an electoral office for a Liberal MHR elected in 2013.

Despite a response from the federal MP suggesting the costs were justified and “within guidelines”, many voters – even on the same side of politics – were dismayed/embarrassed/ropeable when the costs of that office fit out were published.

These are difficult economic times and if there is one theme running through it is “belt tightening”.

No matter that “within guidelines” and “a very small expense in the overall scheme of things” may be considered sufficient explanations for what a sceptical voter might regard as a “rip-off”, it is the necessary, if unfortunate, responsibility of elected representatives from all parties to have tighter belts than most.

With the holiday season here and politicians off somewhere, let’s hope they take to heart some of their own advice and go frugal and shop locally – domestic holidays rather than taxpayer funded trips to far away places with strange-sounding names and almost total irrelevance to an MP’s need to gain knowledge and expertise.

— TREVOR COWELL, Perth.

Teachers

WE ARE told that we want to be the clever country/state.

Here we are giving more money to education for resources but cutting teachers. Who is going to use all these new resources?

Now we have Prime Minister Tony Abbott scrapping jobs in the CSIRO and training courses. Where is the cleverness? Certainly not in our federal or state governments.

Still, I guess as long as the pollies get all their entitlements then all is well with the world.

— GLENNIS SLEURINK, Launceston.

Politics

LET’S forget party politics for a minute.

When did Australia elect to have two governments operating at the one time?

It appears right now that we have just this.

We have a government, formed in the House of Reps, elected earlier this year by a comfortable majority.

But we seem to have another government in the Senate.

One government – the government of the people – tries to enact legislation that it took to the election. Yet, we have the second government (the Senate) rejecting 90 per cent of the proposed laws.

This is clearly an untenable situation. Surely the Senate is there to scrutinise and review legislation. It is entitled – indeed required – to pick legislation to pieces, complain, condemn, even amend legislation, but not to block it completely.

The result is that Australia is going nowhere. It simply can’t while we have two ‘governments’.

The opposition is there to put its point of view. And so it should. But at the moment, it, along with the Greens, simply block. They are acting like a second government.

I am absolutely positive that when our forefathers established Parliament this scenario was never envisaged.

To say Australia is ‘ungovernable’ at the moment may be an overstatement.

But unless the Senate pulls its head in and starts acting like a house of review, the time may come – sooner than we think – that the country comes to a complete standstill.

— TONY BENNEWORTH, Launceston.

Labor

I WAS amazed to here recently on television, a poll which would put Labor back in power if there was an election now.

Does the public really think Labor would do anything different to what they have done recently?

First consider that Kevin Rudd after spending $42 billion surplus handed to him by Peter Costello in his first year in office and then had to borrow madly to overcome the Global Financial Crisis the next year.

Plus then borrowing billions of dollars to run the country.

When Labor were put out of office by the people, it was because they had exposed their way of operating.

The new government was not handed a $42 billion surplus as was their predecessors, instead they were handed a debt.

How on earth were they expected to produce anything but a tough budget and then put up with the hypocrisy of the previous government’s taunting over their first budget?

If this latest poll is true, then all I can say is, do the Australian people have such a seriously short memory of why they outed Labor in the first place, or do Australians not see the obvious, which is,

No Employer = No Employee.

— KEN MANNING, Deloraine.

Sydney gunman a real sheikh only to himself

Took hostages: Man Haron Monis. Photo: Nick RalstonCOMMENT
Nanjing Night Net

Despite the apocalyptic timbre of the siege in Sydney and the perpetrator’s apparent links to Islamic terrorism, it was the crude work of one man acting alone.We can’t stop this. Sorry, but we can’t. As we ruminate on a thousand hows and what ifs –such as how the hell did someone like Man Haron Monis find himself out on bail –there’s a brutal truth we can’t escape: we’re trying to impose order on chaos; to convince ourselves that everything can some day be under our control, when it just can’t. Tony Abbott deserves lasting admiration for having the courage to admit as much.

From all appearances, this was as crude and as solitary as it gets. There’s no high-tech wizardry on show. There’s no elaborate, maniacal plan worthy of a Hollywood supervillain. There’s not even a mastermind pulling strings to make this more coherent. There is only a man, a gun and a flag. The man and the gun we’ve seen before. Indeed, we’ve seen it horrifically often: in Belgium just hours after Martin Place; at Port Arthur. But the flag –that changes things. It lends this the apocalyptic timbre that drives us so mad. It’s the thing in this episode that does the least damage – and the most.

It’s also the thing that makes this global. There’s every reason to suspect we’re dealing with someone deranged here but many deranged gunmen have gone before him. Only rarely do they associate themselves with the symbolic power of a global militant movement. At no point in the history of our species have such human satellites, living beyond the margins of even the most marginal groups, had the power to do so: the power to become so much more than they are simply by attaching themselves to a symbol from another continent. And right now, there is no symbol more potent and available than that of Islamic terrorism.

So, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau and Martin Rouleau Couture in Canada. Zale Thompson in New York. Now Monis at Martin Place. We’re seeing this more now: troubled (often criminal) histories, possible mental illness, religious conversion, violence. Monis apparently converted to Sunni Islam only recently, perhaps because you can’t really claim to love IS when you’re a Shiite and they’re trying to exterminate you. Islam has such permeable borders, such an absence of hierarchy, that anyone can become anything in their own mind. Its symbols are available to anyone who wants to claim them and there is nothing anyone can do to stop them. Australian Muslims had been disowning Monis for at least seven years. They’d even expressed their concerns to the authorities. But how can you stop the “fake sheikh” being real to himself?

There’s no control order regime to account for this. There’s no metadata inside an apparently deranged mind. We’re busy fretting about the terrorists’ tools of the future – which is all fair enough – while they wreak havoc with the tools of the past. Think about what we’ve seen lately, from Australia to North America: a knife, an axe, a couple of guns, even a car. Perhaps the most profound aspect of our age is that the power to inflict carnage is now shared with the small to the invisible to the otherwise insignificant. Man Haron Monis was so insignificant, hardly anyone knew him; so insignificant the system overlooked him. And now he’s history.

But there’s another history to be written here. One that is very much in control. It’s a history written not just in the statements of leaders, but in the minutiae of our everyday interactions. It’s the history we glimpsed as the siege unfolded when a single, humble Australian decided to declare #illridewithyou in solidarity with Muslims too scared to ride public transport. It’s a history that commenced with the interfaith vigil held at the Lakemba and Auburn mosques. And it’s a history to be determined by what we decide this tragedy symbolises: the sordid ideology of a man who deserves to be forgotten or the greatest virtues of those of us left behind.
