Trainee instructors at the Helicopter Aircrew Training System Warrant Officer Class 2 Joseph Laycock, Major Anton Leshinskas, Captain Anthony Erwin, Major David Oddy, Captain Adrian Ludman and Lieutenant Commander Michael Robertson.The Royal Australian Navy and Army Joint Helicopter School at HMAS Albatross is a step closer to lift off with the first group of instructors beginning their training at the multi-million-dollar facility.

Civilian contractors Boeing Defence Australia and Thales will teach the future instructors how to operate the EC135 training helicopter and the three full-flight simulators that make up the school’s Helicopter Aircrew Training System.

Army Captain Adrian Ludman said the group will also validate and verify the training that they will eventually deliver to students when the school opens in January 2018.

“The Training System will deliver a joint Navy and Army aviation training capability that will replace the separate basic rotary training systems that employ the ageing Squirrel and Kiowa helicopters respectively,” Captain Ludman said.

Captain Ludman said the Army and Navy instructors had come together well despite coming from quite disparate training and operational backgrounds and they were proud to be part of a school that would deliver best-in-the-world helicopter training.

“The previous aircraft were single-engine helicopters with all instrument dials. The EC135 is an electronic age modern helicopter with digital displays replacing the analogue instruments and dual certified GPS navigation systems that allow flight in-cloud with no requirement for ground-based navigation systems,” he said.

The first group of instructors is expected to finish in July with the next instructor course to start in September.

The Joint Helicopter School will train up to 105 Navy and Army aircrew each year. These aviators will go on to train in and subsequently crew the MH-60R Seahawk, MRH90 Taipan, ARH Tiger and CH-47F Chinook helicopters.

The school will provide better and more advanced training for pilots, Aviation Warfare Officers, Aircrewmen and Sensor Operators for complex rotary operational types, both current and future.

After promising $50 million for Appin Road, the government appears to have made only a few phone calls about the project. Picture: Jonathan NgThe federal government should be doing more than just making phone calls about fixing Appin Road, according to Cunningham MP Sharon Bird.
Nanjing Night Net

During a Senate Estimates hearing into regional transport on Monday, Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development officials were asked about progress on the government’s election commitment to Appin Road.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull promised $50 million for the northern end of Appin Road in May last year during theelection campaign.

The department’s South East Roads Branch general managerSarah Leeming said they had spoken to the NSW government by phone several times about Appin Road.

“We’ve been talking to NSW about all the election commitments since just after the election,” the department’s South East Roads Branch general managerSarah Leeming told the estimates committee.

“On Appin Road we’ve had a couple of specific conversations with them about it.”

She added that a large number of meetings occurred by phone.

Ms Leeming said there was no date set for the start of the works.

FederalMinister for Infrastructure and Transport, Darren Chester last month said the government was committed to all election promises.

Ms Bird was unhappy that, nine months after the election, the government had done little more on the Appin road upgrade than “make a couple of phone calls”.

“The Liberal Government is stifling the region’s growth by their refusal to invest in the region and provide adequate transport links to ensure that we can harness investment and employment opportunities to their full extent,” Ms Bird said.

“We have overcrowded commuter trains, major arterial roads being closed in peak periods due to accidents and the Liberal Government sitting on their hands and refusing to engage with the region to help relieve the pressure on our roads and rail links.”

Mr Chester’s office was contacted for comment.

POLICE are appealing for information after a young girl says she was approached in Oberon on Tuesday.
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.

John Farnham will headline Saturday’s Red Hot Summer Tour.Dubbo’s Lazy River Estate will be full to bursting on Saturday, with Red Hot Summer Tour promoter Duane McDonald expecting a sell-out.
Nanjing Night Net

There were just 22 of the 5000tickets remaining as of Wednesday morning, and Mr McDonald expected them to be snapped up by Thursday evening.

“For a regional city it’s fantastic and that’ll top out a clean sweep – the whole tour will be sold out for the John Farnham shows,” he said.

It’s the second time the Red Hot Summer Tour has played in Dubbo after debuting at Lazy River Estate in 2016.

Last year’s event was also a sell-out, which proved Dubbo “is obviously a music town”, Mr McDonald said.

Dubbo Regional Council administrator Michael Kneipp said it was a coup for the city.

“We would love to have one every year because we’re seeing through the Dubbo theatre and a number of functions that really does bring money to town,” Mr Kneipp said.

“It’s another cultural offering that the town has. This city has a wonderful array of events and to have the Red Hot Summer Tour back in town is just fantastic.

“We haven’t got a definite amount but certainly we can do some modelling, from the hoteliers and those sorts of things, we can come up with a formula that says it’s worth many, many hundreds of thousands dollars.”

Mr McDonald said it was “great to see motels, restaurants and cafes full when you drive through town”.

“We try to get local people involved when it comes to the catering, the set up and cleaning,” he said.

“That’s what it’s all about, especially for the smaller, regional areas.”

Temperatures climbed to 36.9 degrees at last year’s event, and Mr McDonald said “everyone got really cooked”.

He was grateful 2017 would be something of a less hot summer tour.

“The weather looks like it’s a little bit better,” Mr McDonald said.

“Isee that you’ve been in the 40s for the last few weeks but I think it’s saying 31 which I think will be well received.”

Organisers will spend Thursday and Friday setting up, and constructing the stage.

Gates will open on Saturday at 2pm, with the opening act to begin at 3pm and the final act –John Farnham–to begin at 8:30pm. Visit梧桐夜网redhotsummertour南京夜网419论坛/for more information.

OUTSTANDING golf prospect Reid Brown from Wingham has made a winning start to his 2017 campaign.
Nanjing Night Net

The 17-year-old claimed his first Taree Open last Saturday when firing a one under the card. While he was pleased with that effort, Brown is particularly chuffed with his performancein Sydney in January when he won the four day Jack Newton Junior Week of Golf. This was conducted over four courses, with Brown finally getting the decision after a playoff.

Brown is the Manning River Times-Iguana Sportstar of the Week, earning a $50 open order at Iguana.

He rated his game in the Taree Open as solid.

“I’ll take a one under par score any day,’’ he said, although he admits his putting wasn’t a strong point of the round.

However, he said his performance in the prestigious Jack Newton event could have lasting ramifications on his future path. The win automatically qualifies him to play in the Bonville Champions in Coffs Harbour in December.

“I tried last year to qualify last year but just missed out,’’ he said.

“So it’s good to get a win early this year.’’

Brown admitted his form over the four days was a bit inconsistent.

“But I kept hanging in,’’ he said.

Despite this Brown was four off the pace going into the last round at Muirfield but forced his way back into contention with a one under 68, although at one stage seven players were in contention for top honours. He then had to survive a playoff against Jackson Hall from Concord to book himself a berth at Bonville, Brown getting the decision on the first hole.

Brown is currently playing pennants with Pymble for the second year. He was unbeaten in 2016 although he has suffered a couple of losses this time around. However, he returned to the winner’s circle last weekend and is now looking for a big finish to the pool games.

“We’re won two of our three games, so hopefully we’ll go on and win our pool,’’ he said.

Brown travels to Sydney on Fridays with his dad, Rod and usually plays on Saturday before lining up for pennants on the Sunday. At this stage the travel hasn’t bothered him.

Brown was selected in the Australian All Schools team last year following the national championships held in Adelaide, where he was a member of the NSW team.

Under the vagaries of the rules he is ineligible for selection this year, but still hopes to play in State schools events to be played at Taree in May.

He’s in year 12 at Wingham High. He practices every day on his home course and while he has a busy playing schedule, he assured he can mix golf and study for the HSC.

Brock Xavier Peters of Keswick Street was charged with hindering a police officer in the execution of duty and using offensive language in a public place.

According to police facts around 2.20am on Sunday, January 15 police were attending the Mobil service station.

After an arrest in relation to another matteran unknown female grabbed one of the officers by their uniform.

The female was moved away from the officer with an extended arm.

At this time Peters has appeared, pushingtheofficer and speaking to him in an offensive manner. “Touch my misses againand I’ll smash you,” he said according to police.

The officer then pushed Peters away who again spokein an offensive manner, and took an aggressive stance, the police statement revealed.

Due to the threat of a violent confrontation with Peters and being in the process of restraining another unrelated offender the officer deployed a one second burst of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) spray to Peters face.

This caused Peters to fall to the ground.

Peters was then taken to Cowra Police station where he awaited treatment from NSW Ambulance officers.

Due to his violent and aggressive nature ambulance officers refused to treat Peters leaving a bottle of “No More Tears” behind so he could treat himself.

Peters’ solicitor Clive Hill said his client’s “heart” was in the right place but on the night “he didn’t know how to conduct himself”.

“There’s no two ways about it, he admits to swearing at the officer who pushed him away. He was hindering the officer,” Mr Hill said.

“The capsicum spray did it’s job knocking him over”.

In sentencing Peters, Magistrate Peter Dare said Peters was lucky the OC spray did it’s job.

“When someone used tomake an arse of themselves to police they’d get a punch in the nose, knock them arse over head,” Magistrate Dare said.

STATES: Port Fairy, which last hosted a carnival in 2015 (pictured) will host the surf life-saving state championships this weekend.PORT Fairy will welcome thousands to its shore this weekend for the Victorian senior surf life-saving championships.
Nanjing Night Net

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.

In the Selected Best Ten Percent, the Robertson flock were judged ahead of Richard Hyles,”Westbourne”, Berremangra, and in third place Caroline Spittle and Rosie Mitchell, Kingslea Partnership, Berremangra.

Competition entrant Sandy Shannon, Bookham Station, Bookham, with his Merino ewes on the point of being shorn.

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!”
