Two Port Fairy Surf Life Saving Club surfboat crews will be among thosevying for state honours as Victoria’s best surf sports competitors make their way to East Beach.

The championships are expected to bring 1000 competitors to the town.

The Port Fairy-based Shearwaters crew of Scott Hetherington, Greg Dalton, Shaun Murrihy, Dean Dwyer and sweep Paul Buchananwill race in the men’s reserve grade.

Theyhave enjoyedsuccess at masters’ events before, wining four gold medals at state level and have made two finals at national level.

Though they will be competing against a wider age group at the Life Saving Victoria championships, Buchanan said strong form over the season had the men’s crew confident of putting in a good showing.

“We’ve been working hard and the boys have actually won two pennants already in their age group at the Apollo Bay and Fairhaven carnivals,” he said.

“We of course they’re competing against some of the younger and stronger crews in the Victoria championships. But we’re looking forward to holding the Port Fairy flag aloft for the town.”

Paul Buchanan

Leonie Boyd, Brooke Greene, Tania Dalton and Nicole Dwyer will represent the Firebirds in the open women’s grade, with Greg Dalton as the sweep.

They have medalled in the past at the state championships, and will be looking to capitalise on strong training form, with just one prior carnival appearance this summer.

Buchanan, who is special projects officer at Port Fairy Surf Life Saving Club, said between competitors, support crews and spectators, there could be 2000-3000 people make their way to Port Fairy.

“It’s the biggest carnival Port Fairy has ever hosted,” he said.

“As a club, we’re excited about having the elite competition come to our beach.”

The surfboat events will be on Saturday, while most other categories will have heats from 8am on Saturday and finals on Sunday.

Buchanan said a mild swell, moderate winds and temperatures of 25-26 degrees Celsius were expected for the weekend, paving the way for a good competition.

Buchanan thanked all the club’s volunteers, as well as Moyne Shire Council and Life Saving Victoria for helping organise the championships.

An Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal survey suggests UberX could see a surge of popularity when it arrives in Wollongong later this month. Picture: Eric RisbergWollongong could see a massive surge in ride-sharing once Uber enters the market, if recent figures are any guide.
Nanjing Night Net

But it might not damage the region’s taxis as much as is feared by some.

Uber’s NSW general manager Henry Greenacre announced last month that UberX would start in the Illawarra on March 16.

Ahead of that launch, the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) released its latest survey of point-to-point transport use.

The report includes Wollongong in the category of “other urban areas”, along with Newcastle, Gosford and Wyong.

While Wollongong only has a small ride-share footprint, with the only provider being Go Buggy.

Newcastle and the Central Coast, however, have had the much larger presence of UberX since April last year – and these areas would account for the bulk of any change in ride-sharing use.

And there has been quite a change.According to the IPART survey, the use of ride-sharing in those urban areas outside Sydneyhas doubled from 9 per cent in 2015 to 18 per cent in November last year.

IPART chair Dr Peter Boxall said the survey found ride-share services appealed to people because they offered good value for money and better waiting times than taxis, “particularly on Friday and Saturday nights”.

However, thesurvey found the increase in ride-share use did not lead to a decrease in taxi use.

In urban areas outside Sydney, almost half of the respondents –44 per cent –said they’d used a taxi in the last six months.

“The proportion of people catching taxis has been largely unchanged since the survey was first conducted in 2012,” IPART chair Dr Peter Boxall said.

The survey also found that people who used ride-share were more likely to use taxis than people who don’t.

The survey claimedthis suggested ride-share encouragedpeople to use a mix of travel options.

Graham and Roy Robertson, “Lynlea”, Bookham, with their winning draft of Merino ewes.Roy Robertson and his father Graham, “Lynlea”, Bookham, have entered the Bookham-Berremangra Merino ewe competition conducted under the auspices of the Bookham Agricultural Bureausince its inception to track the steady improvement of their flock.
Nanjing Night Net

This year they were rewarded for their commitment to the Merino industry, being awarded first place overall, sponsored by Elders,Yass, and first in the Selected Best Ten Percent class sponsored by Gordon Litchfield Wool, Yass.

Co-judge Mick Corkhill, Grassy Creek Merinos, Reids Flat, complimented the Robertson’s on the style of their sheep.

Richard Hyles, “Westbourne”, Berremangra, with his Merino ewes, placed first in the shortwool section.

“They have really magnificent wool, can handle the water beautifully and have incredible handle, softness and style with beautiful nourishment,’ Mr Corkhill said.

“I can see what you want to do with them, and I totally agree …get a bit more leg, a bit more length of body …but the fundamentals are there.”

Co-judge, Ben Lane, manager Windridge Farms, Young, and formerly of the Uardry Merino stud, Hay, concurred with Mr Corkhill’s comments.

“The top ten percent are where you want to be and obviously if you put a bit more size on them that would be great,” he said.

“A bigger ram with a bit more micron is not going to hurt because you have good skin.”

Mr Lane further said the ewes were in perfect condition with depth and good carcase shape.

Second overall, behind the Robertson flock was Caroline Spittle and Rosie Mitchell, Kingslea Partnership, Berramangra, presenting their March-shorn Grogansworth-blood ewes,with Richard Hyles, taking third place displaying his November-shorn Yarrawonga-blood flock.

Mr Hyles was awarded the Grogansworth stud, Yass prize for first place in the shortwool section, while Bill, Marg and Brett Mackay, “Brookfield”, Bowning, were awarded the Encouragement prize sponsored by Bogo Merino stud, Yass.

Mr Mackay has introduced Yarrawonga genetics to lift the production of his traditional finewool flock based on Merryville-blood.

Soft Merino skins the answer at BookhamCommitted to their craft,woolgrowersGraham and Roy Robertson,“Lynlea”, Bookham, have a simple but defined vision when purchasing replacement rams.

Addressingthe gathered woolgrowers during the Bookham Merino ewe competition,Roy Robertsonsaidtheir rams have been selected for the past 20 years for their long staple length and deep crimp.

“We started with a superfine base, and we’ve managed to keep the [fine] micron,” he said.

“It is actually getting finer without really trying as we haven’t fleece micron tested for five years.”

Mr Robertson explained their aim is to breed a good size ewe, growing a long-stapled nice white and deep crimping fleece on a relatively thick skin.

Currently their maiden ewes, based on Tallawong, Merrignee and Yarrawonga genetics are cutting 5.5kg as 10 month lambs and measuring 16.9m.

Recent introductions of rams from the Yass-based studsBogo and Billa Burra Burra have been selected for their type based upon the Robertson philosophy.

Mr Robertson admitted their genetic base is becoming wider, but they continue to have the same determination when purchasing their replacement rams.

“Our ram selection has been focusing on size for the past couple of years and not necessarily on micron at the moment,” Mr Robertson admitted.

“We are not too worried about putting a 20 micronram over these sheep as it doesn’t seem to affect the micron [average] of the flock.”

Co-judge Mick Corkhill agreed with their ambition.

“You talk about putting a 20 micron wool over them …the skin quality of your sheep is spot on,” he said.

“Good skins are going to test …that is the bottom line!”

Gundagai holds pride of place as one of the best agricultural shows on the calendar and is an ideal platform for seedstock producers to showcase their livestock.

Judges Kerrie Sutherland and Steve Carter scrutinised the exhibits and gave many of the leading studs from throughout the Riverina the sign of approval they were looking for before some of the major breed shows and on-property sales take place.

Exhibitors of Limousin cattle showed plenty of strength and this breed was successful in gaining both of the major interbreed awards.

The interbreed champion female and supreme exhibit of the show wasBirubi Mistress M56, a homo polled daughter of Donna Valley Poll Dictator. Mistress is entered in the upcoming Sydney Limousin Feature sale in April. The Interbreed champion Bull was Garren Park Lewis, a Flemington Fire Cracker son that is being prepared for the Limousin National Show and Sale at Wodonga in May.

Glenn and Susie Trout of the Birubi Limousin Stud at Borambola were pleased with the results at Gundagai after taking a team of nine head. Mrs Trout said there were about 25 Limousins entered at Gundagai. The broad ribbon winners from the Birubi stud are entered at the Limousin National Show and Sale at Wodonga in May.

JAMES SPENCELEY

CO-OWNER James Spenceley believes this season’splayoffs campaign has shown the Hawkscan have sustained success in the NBL.

Final countdown: Nick Kay brings down a rebound in game one of the season. He was signed from Townsville as part of a major roster overhaul.

In a new era of three imports and increasingly cashed-up rivals, Illawarra have fought their way into the five-game grand final series against Perth.

The Hawks title bid has come after an era of instability, where mining magnate Arun Jagatramka saved the club at the 11thhour after a campaign by former captain Mat Campbell.

Spenceley then took over the ownership in 2014, before the club plunged into voluntary administration.

But from all the doom and gloom, where club legend Gordie McLeod left, coach Rob Beveridge has led the Hawks to successive playoff series.

“We’ve delivered,” he said.

“When I came in, I was quoted saying we wanted to have success within three years.

“In my first year we finished 6-22, but one of the things I’ve said to Bevo and to (general manager) Kim (Welch) is we wanted to do it the right way and build as a team environment.

“This is Bevo’s culture and it’s our culture and we’ve done it on one of the lower budgets after losing star players.”

The Hawks were rocked when last season’s NBL MVP Kevin Lisch –who had played all his Australian professional career with Beveridge as coach –took a lucrative deal to move to the Sydney Kings.

Kirk Penney also left for New Zealand, leaving Beveridge to rebuild the roster.

But Spenceley is adamant the off-court team, led by Welch, deserves credit for the resurgence and capturing the imagination of the Wollongong public again, with Wednesday night’s grand final game two essentially a sell-out.

Welch was at the centre of social media storm earlier this year, when an oldFacebook post of him dressed in “blackface” costume as NBA superstar Steph Curry surfaced.

It caused a backlash among fans and created tension among the playing group.

However, Spenceley –a multi-millionaire telecommunications boss – said Welch deserves credit for his role in the Hawks revival.

“From his experience as operations manager in Perth, Kim has brought that successful culture to Wollongong,” Spenceley said.

“Kim has transformed this club, particularly with our game-night experience and running the business on the budget we have.

“I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves.”

Nanjing Night Net

Police say a 10-year-old girl was walking to school on Tasman Street just before 9am on Tuesday when she says a man got out of a white van and pointed at her.

The girl ran from the scene and later reported the incident to a teacher at her school, who contacted police.

Officers from Chifley Local Area Command are investigating the incident and would like to speak with a man who may be able to assist with inquiries.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, tall with a skinny buildand aged in his 40s. He had short, greying brown hairand was wearing a blue T-shirt and black jeans at the time.

The van is only described as white and with a number plate containing the numeral 1 and the letter D.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Bathurst Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Meanwhile, the incident has again prompted police to encourage parents to discuss the “Safe People, Safe Places”messages with their children, including;

Make sure your parents or another adult you know knows where you are at all times.Always walk straight home or to the place you are walking to. Walk near busier roads and streets, or use paths where there are lots of other people.Know where safe places are – a shop, service station, police station, library or school. If you are ever frightened, you should go to one of these places and ask them to call the police.Learn about safe adults you can look for and talk to if you need help – police officers, teachers at school, adults you know and trust.Don’t talk to people you don’t know and never get into a car with someone you don’t know. If a car stops on the side of the road and you don’t know the person inside, do not stop.If you are scared and can use a phone, call 000 and tell them you are scared.If someone tries to grab you, yell out“Go away, I don’t know you”. This lets other people know you have been approached by someone you don’t know.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.

“In addition to being a fantastic exercise program, PrYme provides a strong social network for participants, who are encouraged to stay on after the classes for coffee and a chat.”

YMCA NSW chief executive officer Leisa Hart said: “Being in my 50s, I know that age is no barrier to keeping fit, being healthy and having a great social life. That’s why I’m really proud of the PrYme program and the benefits it has for those who take part.

On the Move: This Easter Island statue appeared to move by itself. Mysterious thingshave been happening in a Wallsend garden.
Nanjing Night Net

“A rather strange incident occurred a couple of weeks ago at our villa complex,” Margaret Priest told Topics.

She and her husband went to Sydney on Saturday, February 4. When they arrived home that evening, they noticed their Easter Island statue, which their son gave them, had disappeared from a garden at the bottom of a shared driveway at the complex.

It had been living there, they thought quite happily, for the last 12 months.

“At first, we were a little perplexed as to where he could have got to,” Margaret said.

“We thought that perhaps he must have been stolen.”

But then they saw it “propped up, sitting at our front doorstep”.

“We weren’t sure how he could have got there because he is quite heavy and needs a trolley to move him. We were dumbfounded. We decided that he must have just become bored with living in that particular part of the garden for so long and wanted a change.”

They took the hint.

“We moved him into another part of the garden and so far he seems perfectly happy there,” she said.

“But just a few days ago, another strange incident occurred. A rather large, brightly coloured garden gnome appeared in exactly the same place that our Easter Island man had occupied just a few days earlier.”

This, it must be said, was very weird.

The garden gnome who seems to support the Newcastle Knights.

“The garden gnome is painted in red, white and blue colours. Perhaps he is a Knights fan and believes that, with the footy season approaching,it is his turn to occupy pride of place at the bottom of the driveway for all to see, as our Easter Island man has had that privilege for too long.

“We are not quite sure what team our Easter Island man supports, but we do hope that they can resolve their differences and live in harmony in their places in our gardens.”

We hope sotoo, Margaret.

Lots of Lego A Lego helicopter at a Westpac branch in Auckland. We want one.

Topics reported yesterday thatthe much-loved Bell 412 chopper would retire from the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

The old girl first worked for the rescue service in 1994, having been bought from Toyota – where she’d been used as transport for VIP executives.

Pilot Peter Cook, a 27-year veteran of the rescue service, described the chopper as “like a good old friend”.

The story reminded Singleton’s Wendy Kempster of a Lego helicopter she saw in a Westpac Bank in Auckland in January.

We should have one of those in Newcastle.

The Fasting LaneFasting has become quite popular in the world of wellbeing. Celebrity doctor Michael Mosley increased the appeal with his program Eat, Fast & Live Longer, which was shown on SBS.

The assertion, backed by science, is that fasting intermittently can lead to a longer and healthier life. Dr Mosley argues that the technique will help people lose weight and enjoy a wide range of health benefits.

He calls its the “5:2 fast diet”. It involves five days of normal eating, with little thought to calorie control (dessert is allowed!). Then, on the other two days, you reduce your calorie intake to 500 calories for women and 600 calories for men.

Anyhow,author Lee Holmes has written a new book titled, Fast Your Way to Wellness.

Lee says intermittent fasting helps the body shift from “a sugar-burning machine into a fat-burning machine”.

Lee Holmes’s new book.

Lee will speak at Speers Point Library at 12.30pm on Thursdayand Bagga’s Pharmacy in Newcastle at 12pm on Friday.

Topics likes food too much to fast, but the talks sound interesting.

Emu Plains Correctional Centre. Picture: CNSWThe cows are coming home.
Nanjing Night Net

A herd of 100 beef cattle will arrive atEmu Plains Correctional Centre in the middle of the year as part of the Corrective Services Industries’ Paddock to Plate programs, Penrith MP Stuart Ayres has announced.

The decision sent a clear message to the community that the site was no longer being considered for a prison expansion, Mr Ayres said.

“The return of a cattle herd to Emu Plains continues a long tradition of utilising agriculture as part of the rehabilitation of prisoners and I am pleased to see this continue into the future,” he said in a statement today (Wednesday, March 1).

“This decision sends a clear signal to the community that the previously proposed expansion on the site is no longer being considered by Government.”

The Paddock to Plate program offers inmates diverse education, training and employment opportunities in primary food production, food processing and meal preparation.

Commissioner Peter Severin said around 100 cows would pass through Emu Plains each year and be tended by minimum-security female inmates from the nearby correctional centre.

“I know that the people of Emu Plains and the Penrith area will be pleased to know that cows are returning to the paddock on Old Bathurst Road,” Mr Severin said in the statement.

“While we had to close the dairy last year, we didn’t realise that the cows would be sorely missed, so we’ve found a more viable alternative to use the farming land.”

The 100 beef cattle will be relocated from Mannus Correctional Centre, near Tumbarumba in the Riverina region of NSW.

CSNSW continues to operate a milk processing facility on the site with raw milk supplied by external dairies and then pasteurised, homogenised and packaged on site, before being distributed to CSNSW inmates around the state.
