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.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

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

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.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

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 苏州美甲美睫培训学校.

20 new Councils created in NSW

20-09-2019 by admin

NSW Premier Mike Baird and Minister for Local Government Paul Toole said twenty new councils announced in NSW last Thursday will work harder for residents and deliver better services and community facilities.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

“The most comprehensive local government reform in more than 100 years will result in 20 new councils beginning operations from the time of the announcement,” Mr Baird said.

In principle, the Minister for Local Government supports creating a further eight councils, subject to decisions of the courts.

“Our plan to create stronger new councils in Sydney and regional NSW will be supported by NSW Government investment of about $500 million,” Mr Baird said.

“We are ensuring our communities have stronger and more efficient councils, which will free up money for important projects such as local roads, parks, playgrounds and footpaths.

Mr Toole said it will be business as usual for residents in new council areas, with services operating as normal.

Each new council will receive up to $10 million to meet the costs of merging and up to an additional $15 million to kick start new investment in community infrastructure through the Stronger Communities Fund, Mr Toole said.

“Following a recommendation by the delegate to proceed with the new council, I have decided to create Hilltops Council by merging the former Boorowa, Harden and Young councils.”

Mr Toole said that $15 million from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund would go towards long-awaited community projects.

“Projects such as expanding the local horticulture and tourism industries, and building critical infrastructure to address water supply.

“The new council will work with the local community to decide how this money is spent.

“Hilltops Council will receive $5 million to meet the administrative costs of streamlining its operations. Unspent funding may be redirected into important community projects.

“The financial benefits from the new, stronger council will also improve planning and economic development to better respond to the changing needs of the community.”

Mr Toole said councillors committed to ensuring the success of the new council will play an important role in the new Hilltops Council, with former Boorowa Mayor, Wendy Tuckerman, appointed Administrator ahead of elections in September 2017.

The Minister has announced that he will proceed with the formation of the following councils:

Armidale Regional Council (Armidale Dumaresq and Guyra) Canterbury-Bankstown Council (Bankstown and Canterbury) Central Coast Council (Gosford and Wyong) City of Parramatta Council (Parramatta and part of Hills, Auburn, Holroyd and Hornsby) Cumberland Council (Auburn and Holroyd) Edward River Council (Conargo and Deniliquin) Federation Council (Corowa and Urana) Georges River Council (Hurstville and Kogarah) Gundagai Council (Cootamundra and Gundagai) Snowy Monaro Regional Council (Bombala, Cooma Monaro and Snowy River) Hilltops Council (Boorowa, Harden and Young) Inner West Council (Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville) Midcoast Council (Gloucester, Great Lakes and Greater Taree) Murray River Council (Murray and Wakool) Murrumbidgee Council (Jerilderie and Murrumbidgee) Northern Beaches Council (Manly, Pittwater and Warringah) Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (Queanbeyan and Palerang) Snowy Valleys Council (Tumut and Tumbarumba) Western Plains Regional Council (Dubbo and Wellington)

Goulburn Mulwaree Council to stand alone

Goulburn Mulwaree Council will stand alone, after the NSW Government last week made announcements regarding the proposed mergers.

Council finalised their submission to Delegate John Rayner in February, in response to the proposal to merge part of Palerang Council with Goulburn Mulwaree. The submission strongly rejected the Minister’s proposal on the basis that it failed to deliver financial benefits, would have increased infrastructure backlog and created inefficiencies in management of staff and employee costs.

Councillors voted unanimously to make their preferred option to stand alone at a meeting in late February; there was no logic in the Minister’s proposal to merge with part of Palerang and this was supported by delegate John Rayner’s report. Mr Rayner stated that in regard to the factors set out in Section 263(3) of the Local Government Act he considered, the Minister’s Proposal should not proceed to implementation.

His reasons for this conclusion were:

The proposal would not improve the financial capacity of an enlarged Council

It would lead to an annual financial deficit estimated to amount to $3.8 million

The provisions of Section 218CA of the Local Government Act would constrain the new Council’s staffing arrangements and service capability

The proposed boundary would have split 72 properties, as well as Majors Creek and the Araluen Valley

a new Council would have had difficulty in meeting service levels and would have little capacity to equalise services due to the anticipated financial deficit

a proposed expanded Goulburn Mulwaree Council would have difficulty meeting the Financial Sustainability criteria necessary to become Fit for the Future

“Our submission to the delegate on the proposed boundary adjustment has been heard, and I am delighted that the best outcome has been achieved for the region,” said Mayor Kettle.

Wagga staff ‘railroaded’ by shake-up

WAGGA railway staff hoping for a reprieve fromjob cutshave been left “devastated”afterNSWTrainLink“dramatically reduced” station hours.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Railway management andRail, Tram and Bus Union officials sat down with local staff on Monday to thrash outthe station’s future, but there was littlechange to cuts announced in June as part of amassive shake-up of the state’s rail system.

All seven of Wagga’s staff will have their hours slashed, meaning the booking office will reduced from eight hours per day to just three.

Staff had beenhopeful the organisation in charge ofregional and rural rail services would soften its stance, after a backflip onplans to make Griffith station unmanned and an announcement Wagga would become the primary stationresponsible for the management of seven other stations.

Retired Wagga railway employee Phil Horwell claimed current staff were “shocked and pretty devastated”.

“Wagga’s lost badly here, we’ve been absolutely railroaded,” Mr Horwell said.

“Currently the booking office is open 9am to5pm with two staff, but the new booking hours will be cut down to 11am to2pm with one person servingpeople wanting to buy tickets.

“The staff willhave to squeeze eighthours of serving people into three and the irony is two XPT trains to Sydney and Melbourne both come during thatperiod when the booking office is open.

“The recentlyannounced area manager will be confined to theback office, looking after eight stations like Leeton and Griffith, withno front-line duties.

“This will mean people can’t bring luggage in early and the cleanliness of the station will also suffer.”

Wagga MP Darly Maguire assured commuters the rationalisation plan wouldn’tdelay timetables.

“The same number of train and coach services would be covered by staff as they are today, including the peak arrivals and departures at Wagga station between midday and3pm,” Mr Maguire said.

“Security at Wagga station will be enhanced, with new CCTV cameras and a customer help point providing 24/7 assistance.”

‘The Recruit’ stars lured to North Ballarat

by admin

THE North Ballarat Roosters have enlisted the services of two of the stars from the upcoming season of Fox Footy show The Recruit for the remainder of the 2016 VFL season.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Ready to make an impact: Matt Eagles and Daniel Cox from television show The Recruit have joined the North Ballarat Roosters for season 2016. Picture: Kate Healy.

Twenty-five year-old tallMatt Eagles will join the Roosters after impressing in the QFA South competition in Queensland, while 21-year-old Daniel Cox comes to North Ballarat from Cable Beach Football Club in the West Kimberley Football League.

Cox had signed with the Roosters during the pre-season period and spent eight weeks training with the Ballarat side, while Eagles trained for a week in January but only signed at North Ballarat in the last week.

Roosters coach Marc Greig said he expected the pair would become regular fixtures in North Ballarat’s starting lineup in coming weeks.

“Danielfitted in really well with the group during pre-season, and he was really quickand will add some genuine excitement,” Greig said. “Matt’s played his last couple of games in the Essendon District Football League and hejust gives us another big option up forward and in the ruck.”

The pair were selected to take part in the show which will air later this year, but will look to further their development with the Roosters with the ultimate hope of being drafted into the AFL system.

Greig said he anticipatedCox to play the bulk of his football in the forward line, but would give the 21-year-old shortstints though the middle of the ground to utilise his pace.

Eagles is also set to become a focal point of the Roosters’ forward line after kicking 61 goals for Yeronga in the QFA, but like Cox will also become an asset in the middle of the ground through the ruck.

“We’ve kept three or four spots on our list this year with the hope of recruiting some mature guys,” Greig said. “Getting these players back helps the development of the younger boys too as they’ll learn from having experiencedboys around.”

The pair are possible inclusions for the Roosters’ clash with Port Melbourne on the weekend.

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?
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

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.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

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 苏州美甲美睫培训学校centralwestcarclub苏州美甲美睫培训学校 .

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.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

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.

A range of free activities will be on offer, including firefighting demonstrations, station tours and fire safety presentations.

Firefighters will also be able to provide advice on installing smoke alarms,changing smoke alarm batteries and preparing a home fire escape plan.

Children will be able to see fire engines and firefighting equipment up close, which is always one of the highlights of this much anticipated day.

For the first time, FRNSW is this year partnering with LEGO City to spread the fire safety message on Fire Station Open Day.

The partnership will see a new Brigade Kids activity booklet and LEGO City minifigures available for open day visitors.

“With May being the 10th anniversary of the introduction of smoke alarm legislation, open day is a timely opportunity to talk to the experts about replacing your smoke alarm,” Station Commander Craig Gibson said.

“Given that not all smoke alarms last beyond 10 years, this year we’re encouraging residents to replace their outdated alarms with the latest photoelectric smoke alarms, which provide earlier detection and fewer false alarms.

“Why not come along to Parkes Fire Station on Open Day and and talk to us about how you can reduce the risk of fire destroying your life,” Station Commander Gibson said.

Natalie Curr, Brand Manager for LEGO Australia said “LEGO City is based on everyday heroes such as firefighters, allowing children to build and role play. This partnership with Fire & Rescue NSW is the perfect opportunity for LEGO City support the real life heroes in our community.”
