Promising performance: Eagles give City a scare

11-07-2018 by admin

Alex Webster looks to pass during Saturday’s loss to Orange City. Photo by Steve Gosch.Cowra’s two-point loss at Pride Park against Orange City on Saturday won’t harm their confidence or momentum, as the Eagles continue to develop as a force to be with reckoned with during this season’s Blowes Clothing Cup.

Cowra were the dominant side for the majority of the second half and were able to reduce a 14-point deficit in the 55th minute to just two at the final siren, when the scores read 26-24 in favour of the Lions.

A defiant defensive effort during the final 25 minutes helped City to hold on as the Eagles mounted countless attacking raids in search of 15 points which would see them steal victory.

After plenty of sustained pressure and a number of penalties – Cowra enjoyed an 8-2 penalty count in their favour in the second half alone – they did get within reach, through Tom Dewhurst and Adam Higgins in the 60th and 76th minutes respectively.

But, the Lions held firm in the shadows of full-time to claim a gritty win.

“We played the full 80 minutes, which was an aim of ours and encouraging but we went away from our game-plan a little bit which we haven’t done for the last three weeks, we’ll look at that,” Cowra coach Troy Hayes said.

“The last 10 minutes was pretty good but we needed to fix up some things in the 70 minutes before that. We missed goals and made silly errors, but they’re things to look at for next weekend now.”

After a scoreless opening 17 minutes Ben Wright barged his way over to give the Lions the lead on the back of sustained pressure, built from Orange City finally putting some phase-play together.

Every time they did so in the game, they scored.

Cowra hooker Ethan Cartwright cancelled Wright’s try out just three minutes later though, and fullback Alex Webster’s conversion tied things up at 7-7.

Cameron Cole and Feleti Wolfgramm crossed in the 31st and 35th minutes respectively, before Eagles skipper Chris Miller was shown yellow for using his boots just before half-time.

Dwyer missed one conversion and Keegan Harding slotted the other despite kicking it off the ground and it being touched mid-air, for Orange City to lead 19-7 at the break.

Matt Spicer opened the scoring in the second half, crossing out wide, but Lions replacement prop Sena Fatai hit back for his side five minutes later.

The Eagles shifted up a gear with Dewhurst scoring in the 60th and spent the next 20 minutes camped in Orange City’s half.

Higgins went over after back-to-back penalties with four minutes to go and Webster hit the mark to make it 26-24, but the Lions held strong.

“We certainly looked better in defence than we did against Forbes and there was a lot more enthusiasm,” Orange City coach Steve Hamson said.

“The guys showed plenty of heart in that one. The set-piece was quite good too, our scrum finally moved forward at times.”

Orange City Lions 26 (Ben Wright, Cameron Cole, Feleti Wolfgramm, Sena Fatai tries; Keegan Harding 2, Sam Dwyer conv.) defeated Cowra Eagles 24 (Ethan Cartwright, Matt Spicer, Tom Dewhurst, Adam Higgins tries; Alex Webster 2 conv.)

‘Bad news for crooks’: Grange responds to Minyip police changes

by admin

Yarriambiack Cr Terry Grange is pleased Minyip Police Station will be manned from May 29. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRIYARRIAMBIACK Shire CouncillorTerry Grange has put criminalson notice after Victoria Police announced it had filled a long-standing officer vacancy at Minyip.

The town’s police station has been unmanned since August 2014.

Victoria Police advertised three times for a station officer, and announced last week an officer had been appointed and would start work on May 29.

Police are still working through final details before they can announce the officer’s name.

Cr Grange, who has campaigned for an officer in the town sinceDavid Flannery transferredacross the state about 20 months ago, said the news generated confidence.

“I’mvery excited.Superintendent Paul Margetts gave it to me in writing a few months ago that he was committed to keeping the Minyip station option, and he’s delivered on that,” he said.

“The community is very pleased. It is good news for residents, good news for the police force, and bad news for the crooks.

“I don’t know if crime spiked without an officer, but I suspect people were aware there were no police in the town.

“The whole point now is, the game is over –there’s police coming in and anycrooks better move on.”

Cr Grange said having a police officer living and working in the town would make residents feel safer.

“It’s goodfor police too because they know they’ve got support there if they need it,” he said.

“Overall, it’s an outstanding result.

“Thecampaign went on for well over 18 months, and it took a fair bit out of me, but that’s life.

“It waswell worth it.”

Cr Grange said there were positives for Murtoa Police Station also, with construction for a new station due to start within six months.

The current station is an old portable building, similar to a classroom.

The state government confirmed in its April state budget the station would be replaced, but has not released how much money it will invest.

Cr Grange said he understood the project would cost about $2.5 million.

“It’s very exciting, and is another win for our communities and the police,” he said.

“I firmly believe if you have good places for staff to work,you’ll attract people to work in the town.”

Ten years of pro comp at Knights

by admin

Australian Bodyboarding Association general manager Dylan Beach with 17-year-old Port Elliot surfer Aden Arens getting a few waves in at Port Elliot’s Knights Beach earlier this week.Bodyboardersare hoping the recent run of perfect surfing conditions willcontinuefor the 10thannual Knights Beach Pro in two weeks’ time.

Over the last decade the Knights Beach Pro has become a recognisedsporting eventnot just locally, but nationally, and its success is due in part to stronglocal support.

Victor Harbor’s Dylan Beach has competed in almost every Knights Pro since its inception, and this year he has taken on the role of Australian Bodyboarding Association general manager.

Dylansaid the Knights shore break is one of the most spectacular in the country, making the event a hallmarkstop on the Australian professional bodyboarding tour.

“I think the progressionfrom the very first Knights Beach Pro, when we only had 20 guys competing,to now where we’ve got the world’s best riders and about 60 competitorsis amazing,” Dylan said.

“We’ve got guys coming from Portugal, Brazil, Hawaii andall around Australia. That’s been a pretty big stepping stone in terms of the event.

“It’s been an evolutionover the last 10 years andthrough the South Australian Bodyboard Clubthe local contingency of riders is only getting stronger and it’s only getting more competitive.

“Knights is such a consistent wave in terms of quality, it’s definitely a favourite of all of the travelling riders.”

Local competitorMarshall Watson is the only South Australian to win a Knights Pro, taking it out in 2013. Riding alongside Marshall this year will be 17-year-old Port Elliot bodyboarderAden Arens.Aden said he would be “stoked” to get through a couple of heats in the professional category.

“I’m really looking forward to the event and getting to meet some of the pros,” Aden said. “There’s always a good atmosphere and just about every bodyboarder in SA will be coming down to watch it.”

Dylan said Aden will be one to watch. “His surfing has improved in leaps and bounds, and it’s only going to get better,” Dylan said.“You see him progressing and pushing himself, so I think he’s got a pretty good chance of taking out one or two divisions, whether it is pro junior or state titles.”

Knights Beach Pro:May 27 to 29. On May 28, there will be live music, markets and food stalls at Merrilli Close, Port Elliot, and after party at Hotel Elliot.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.

THE SIDELINE EYE with Sports Editor Denis Howard

19-08-2019 by admin

Denis HowardIs it just me or are top sportspeople getting paid too much money?
Nanjing Night Net

It is the only reason I can come up with as to why, firstly Adam Scott and now Bernard Tomic, have withdrawn their availability to represent Australia at the Rio Olympics.

Scott said he would not be available to play golf for Australia due to wanting to spend time with his family.

Usually I could say fair enough, but not in this case.

Scott said his decision was made as a result of “an extremely busy playing schedule around the time of the Olympics and other commitments, both personal and professional.”

Making himself unavailable because he is too busy is un-Australian.

Here is an idea, miss a tournament in the lead up to the Olympics and go and see family then.

Compared to many players on the US PGA tour, Scott’s schedule is miniscule.

He picks the tournaments he wants to play and for people who work normal jobs, you would hardly call it busy.

This year Scott has played nine tournaments, including last weekend’s Players Championship, adding up to just more than 30 days of play.

Yes, he has practice rounds and sponsor days which add to that total, but he is playing golf!

I know a few people, including myself, who would love to be too busy playing golf.

Scott is loath to miss a tournament in the lead up to Rio because he gets paid in those, unlike the Olympics.

He has amassed more than $5 million just in prize money this year which does not include appearance fees and sponsorship dollars.

Using a busy schedule as an excuse is pretty weak.

Scott was an Australian I would have liked to see representing the country at the Games, Bernard Tomic less so.

Not assured of even being selected, Tomic announced he will not be available for the Australian team as he will be playing a tiny ATP Tour event in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The World No 22’s possible selection in the Aussie team came under scrutiny after he deliberately lost a match point in Madrid before saying he did not care because he was worth $10 million.

Making himself unavailable seems to be a pre-emptive move before Tennis Australia could leave him out of the team.

There was no certainty Tomic would not be selected, but I must say I am not disappointed with the result.

Sure the guy has plenty of skill, but if his talent ever comes close to the size of his apparent ego he will be a world beater.

When representing Australia in Davis Cup, Tomic’s record of 16 wins and just four losses is exemplary.

His decision to not be available appears to be a childish stunt to try and show who has the power.

Tomic, like Scott, claims his busy schedule was the determining factor in his unavailability.

And like Scott, Tomic determines his own schedule.

These guys, who make a fantastic living off their chosen sports, might like to take a minute and think about the poor athletes who have busted a gut for four years trying to make the Olympics on very little money, and only just missed out.

Personally, I would have no issue if neither athlete represented Australia again.

Look at our own Scott Westcott who had to battle for 16 years to make his Olympic dream come true.

It is athletes like him who I will be cheering on in the future, not those who place no value on representing the Green and Gold.

I can’t wait to hear all the stories of how hard our Aussie athletes had to fight to make the Olympic Games.

They are the ones with true Australian spirit.

– – – – –

As I do every year, I would like to wish everyone a happy St Totteringham’s Day.

It did not look like Arsenal fans were going to be able to celebrate this year with Spurs two points ahead going into the final round.

Tottenham played relegated Newcastle and were expected to win.

In the biggest choke since Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters, Spurs lost 5-1 to a Newcastle side who played the final third of the match with 10 men.

It has now been 21 years since Arsenal ended a season lower on the table than their North London rivals.

Suzy had to have a bike licence to marry into the family!

by admin

Suzy Mill has a choice of motor bikes. Suzy Mill from Parkes is lucky enough to have her choice of motorbikes to ride.
Nanjing Night Net

Between her and her husband Scott, they have several motorbikes, old and new, but these two are definitely Suzy’s.

The only dilemna is which one to ride?

Starting with the vintage bike – it’s a 1949 BSA B33 500cc that Scott rebuilt in 1996.

They were living in a caravan at the time and that’s exactly where Scott built the bike.

He used to wheel it in front of the television and work on the bike.

He even rebuilt a motor for his car in the caravan too.

It just goes to show what can be done with what little you have.

The engine came out of a midget race car that Scott used to drive around the paddocks as a youngster.

“It was the fastest racing Midget in the Central West in the 1950s and we bought it in the 80s,” Scott said.

“The BSA was a really common bike in the 5s. Lots of farmers had them”.

When Scott rebuilt the motor he fitted modified heads, custom cams and a bigger carburettor and ran the bike on methanol for that bit of extra punch.

In a way, that’s how Suzy ended up with it.

It was always Scott’s motorbike until on a bike run with Scott on the BSA and Suzy on the “slow bike”, they decided to swap bikes.

Suzy literally took off and Scott couldn’t keep up so it’s affectionately become Suzy’s bike.

On rides, Suzy would always be asked about the fast bike and she’d typically say “it’s a red bike”, point towards Scott and say “that’s my husband, ask him all about it”.

Scott and Suzy would like to especially thank “Nan and Pop”, Scott’s late mum Ruth and dad Alex, for their support, inspiration and knowledge, particularly in those early builds.

Suzy wasn’t always a motorbike enthusiast. That came when she first met Scott.

The story goes that she couldn’t marry into the Mill family until she could ride and get a bike licence so she learnt to ride on a Suzuki RM80 which they still mess around with on weekends.

True to her word she had a motorbike licence before their wedding in 1995.

So the motorbike passion was certainly ignited (there was no choice really).

Scott was sick of being left behind and no longer letting Suzy use methanol in the BSA so she soon had the need for speed and started looking for a modern bike.

Along came the Harley Davidson 48.

It’s a 2010 model and Scott bought it for Suzy for her birthday in 2014 (lucky gal!).

The story behind it is that Harley Davidson held a competition called Judgement Day amongst its Australian dealers where each dealership was given a 48 to customise.

Scott was lucky enough to find this one at a dealership in Sydney.

It features a 1200cc Screaming Eagle kit, Vance and Hines pipes, custom silver “boat fleck” paint and seat trim, custom graphics and those stand out blue rims and whitewall tyres.

The Harley is on full registration so gets some regular road use while the BSA is on historic registration so only comes out on club runs.

Suzy admits to being a bit of a seasonal rider – nothing wrong with preferring to cruise when the sun is shining!

Suzy and Scott are both members of the CWCC and regularly get to monthly meetings and club runs.

You can find out more about the club at 梧桐夜网centralwestcarclub南京夜网 .

Last word goes to Suzy – “When it comes to a choice of rides its a tough one, but I keep coming back to the red bike”.

Former Peel Health Campus guard on trial over alleged sexual assault of teenage girl

by admin

Perth District Court.The defence team for a man accused of the sexualassault ofa teenagegirl in Mandurah will argue the accused’s alleged victim had been “smitten”, and made up claims after her “crush” was not reciprocated.
Nanjing Night Net

Shaun David Fairfield is on trial in the Perth District Court this week afterpleadingnot guilty to five counts of indecent dealing and two counts of sexual penetration of a 15-year-old girl.

The charges relate to alleged incidents involving a patient at Peel Health Campus where Mr Fairfield was employed as a security guard in 2014.

On Monday the court heard Mr Fairfield was working the night shift at the hospital on May 16/17, 2014, when he took the girl, who was a psychiatric patient, outside for “fresh air”.

The pair were said to have not returned to the emergency department where the girl was a patient until well after midnight, having spent a long time outside, according to State prosecutor Tatiyajith Karunaratne.

A jury chosen to decide Mr Fairfield’s fate were told by Mr Karunaratne the accused sexually assaulted the girl while outside the hospital by touching her “private area”, showing her a photo of his genitals, and “grinding” against her, as well as sexually penetrating her twice.

All the alleged offences happened while the girl was in the care of Mr Fairfield.

Mr Fairfield denies all charges.

Defence counsel Genevieve Cleary told the jury her client had taken the girl out for a walk, but nothing sexual had happened between the two.

Ms Cleary said there was no footage of Mr Fairfield and the girl together, norwas there DNA or other forensicevidence.

The case was a matter of the alleged victim’s “uncorroborated word against [Mr Fairfield’s]”.

Ms Cleary suggested the claims made by the girl, which were not brought to light until close to four months after the date of the alleged offences, were a result of her being “annoyed and hurt her crush was not reciprocated”.

The first day of the trial saw six witnesses called, including the girl’s mother, a local security guard, and Peel Health Campus employees.

The alleged victim, who recorded her testimony before the trial, will be heard on Tuesday when the trial continues.

ALMOST! Koondrook/Barham’s Troy Rogers just eludes fast approaching Eagle Dylan McCutcheon during the Raiders’ 21-point win on Saturday. The victory leaves the Raiders third on the Central Murray Football Netball League ladder after six rounds. Picture – KEN JENKINSROUND six Central Murray Football Netball League matches involving local sides went according to ladder placement at the weekend, with the Cohuna Kangas, Kerang and Koondrook/Barham all winning.

The Cohuna Kangas recorded a third win of the season, defeating the winless Tyntynder by 38 points at Swan Hill.

The visitors kicked the only six goals of the opening quarter to set up the win, but had to withstand a fightback from the Bulldogs in the third term.

Kokwam Niki kicked three goals for the victors, with Rhys Bradley and Marcus Rogers leading the way across the ground.

The win moved the Kangas to seventh on the ladder, sharing the same number of wins as the fourth and fifth-placed sides.

Koondrook/Barham sits third on the ladder following its fifth consecutive win – a 21-point win against the Mallee Eagles.

The Raiders fought back from a 12-point quarter time deficit to lead by 15 points at the main break.

Fullerton Hadley Landcare exposure in Macquarie Street

by admin

Scott Hanson, Director General, NSW Department of Primary Industries, Simon Rowe Dep Chair Fullerton Hadley Landcare and Dep Chair NSW Fish Habitat Partnership, the Hon Katrina Hodgkinson MP, Member for Cootamundra and Chair Parliamentary Friends of Landcare. NATURAL resource management issues of the Fullerton/Hadley region were taken to NSW Parliament House last week as Simon Rowe (Dep Chair Fullerton Hadley Landcare) attended ‘Trees in the House’.

On May 10 Landcare leaders gathered at Parliament House at the ‘Trees in the House’ function hosted by the cross-party NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare to discuss the important work Landcare does for the benefit of agriculture, conservation and local communities.

The event was held in partnership with Landcare NSW.

Simon said, “The opportunity to provide exposure to so many influential politicians and departmental staff around our local group’s efforts was great.

“If you are a politician and not in touch with what your local Landcare community do I’d encourage you to find out”.

The Minister for Agriculture Hon. Niall Blair MLC informed the Legislative Council how pleasing it was to see the Local Landcare Coordinator program progressing well as it renews the government-community relationship and unlocks the full potential of the thousands of volunteers in the Landcare network.

Recently appointed Landcare Coordinator positions, funded under the NSW Government’s $15m Landcare Policy 2015-2019, have been a catalyst for renewed activity – leveraging additional funding and bringing volunteers back into Landcare.

The strengthened network of Local Landcare Coordinators is able to respond to local priorities as well as state policies, grant programs and partnership opportunities.

For example, the recently released biodiversity reforms mean Government must engage with the private landholders who are responsible for more than 70 percent of land in NSW.

Landcare has the on ground networks and connections.

The Government’s Landcare policy 2015-2019 is being delivered through a partnership between Landcare NSW and Local Land Services.

The NSW Parliamentary Friends of Landcare (PFL) is a cross-party group of NSW Members of Parliament who have a common interest in demonstrating support for the goals of Landcare.

The Fullerton Hadley Landcare area contains 80 landholders of which 70% reside outside of the district. Fullertonhadleylancare.org419论坛 New members welcome. [email protected]论坛

Cabonne councillor Janelle Culverson is the latest candidate to put her hand up to contest the state seat of Orange after Mr Gee won National Party preselection for the federal seat of Calare. Parkes’ State MP Andrew Gee has not yet resigned but the position is already hotly contested.

Cabonne councillor Janelle Culverson is the latest candidate to put her hand up to contest the state seat of Orange after Mr Gee won National Party preselection for the federal seat of Calare.

Mrs Culverson will contest the seat as a National Party member and will compete in a National Party preselection against Orange councillor Scott Munro, who is also running the seat of Orange.

Mrs Culverson was elected as a Cabonne councillor eight years ago, she is married, has three children and runs a civil construction and agricultural service business.

She says has had diverse experiences in life, which give her an advantage when it comes to representing the people of the electorate.

“I have insights in to many of the issues affecting people’s lives… for example issues affecting families, young people and working women,” Mrs Culverson said.

“I am committed to seeing our community prosper and grow, not only for us now, but so our children have the choice of enjoying a rural lifestyle that is not less than our metropolitan counterparts in opportunity and prosperity,” she said.

The date of the Orange by-election has not been announced and Mr Gee has indicated he intends to stay on as local state member until June 9.
