Overpass is go

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

The approved route for the new road over rail overpass planned for Gunnedah.

Violeta Hiscock

Gunnedah’s second road over rail bridge will go ahead along the preferred route announced in August.

Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay and Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has confirmed work would now start on development of the concept design and environmental approvals.

The route includes acquisition of at least two properties to allow the access to Barber Street requested by local businesses.

Once again, the news has come as a surprise to Barber Street resident Violeta Hiscock, whose house lies directly inthe path of the access route to Barber Street.

Mrs Hiscock was suprised to hear the house she has lived in for 20 years was in the way of the route when it was announced as the preferred option in August.

On Friday, she was just as surprised to learn the route had been confirmed.

She has not yet been made an offer on her house by Roads and Maritime Services

She said she does not want to move.

“Money means nothing to me,” Mrs Hiscock said.

“I still feel that way, honest to goodness.

“I am 63 years old and I do not want to start all over again. I am comfortable here. I walk around and I know people here, I trust people here and I have friends here.”

Roads and Maritime Services left a message for Mrs Hiscock the afternoon before Friday’s announcement, asking her to call them. She said she wanted to continue to fight the acquisition of her home.

The Gunnedah overpass will be built to allow easier movement of traffic around Gunnedah as coal trains become longer and more frequent and mean faster times for emergency services vehicles.

Mr Gay said the Gunnedah overpass was part of the NSW government’s $290 million Bridges for the Bush program.

“The preferred option will provide an unrestricted higher mass limit (HML) route through the town and maintain access to the Barber Street business precinct through an upgrade intersection,” Mr Gay said.

The route chosen is west of the Gunnedah Maize Mill and will connect the Oxley Highway with a new roundabout at the intersection of Conadilly and Warrabungle streets.

Gunnedah Shire Council mayor Owen Hasler said today council supported the option and was “eager to see the concept turn into reality particularly given the increased rail traffic on the line due to greater coal production in the area”.

“Council applauds the state government and Road and Maritime Services on the extensive community consultation undertaken during the conceptual and planning phase of the project and are pleased that modified Option C has been identified as the preferred option for the overpass development

“This development brings with it many benefits for the community such as improved accessibility, improved safety and the opportunity for considerable economic benefits with the commercial redevelopment of the western end of Gunnedah.

“However, due to the extremely complex nature of the site I wish to also acknowledge that some residents will be negatively impacted by the development and this is indeed regrettable.”

Mr Anderson said the preferred option – Option C – had been refined to include access to Barber Street.

“I’m pleased the recommended Option C for the second overpass of the railway line at Gunnedah identified in August is now the preferred option,” he said.

“The new route will replace the New Street level crossing, which will be closed.”

Nungatta visit

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

THE Bombala and District Historical Society held its spring excursion to Nungatta, Nungatta South and Wangabelle on Saturday, November 15.
Nanjing Night Net

Around 60 people made their way to Nungatta for morning tea where the President, Stuart Hood welcomed all and gave the group a history of settlement in Nungatta.

Mr Hood explained that when W.T. Morris squattered on 100,000 acres in the area in 1836, they found the aborigines in the area were outcasts from other tribes and were not aggressive like some of the aborigines further south.

There were a succession of owners each lasting three or four years until Alexander Weatherhead bought Nungatta in 1854 for 800 pounds.

It was now much reduced, about 12,000 acres. He later wrote that he was very happy there, he could eat when he was hungry, sleep when he was tired and work for the rest of the time.

He raised his family there, farmed it successfully and when he died in 1901 he left an estate worth 40,000 pounds.

Hector McWilliam (of McWilliams Wines) bought it from the estate in 1914 and unsuccessfully tried to subdivide it into dairy farms. He then sold it in 1918 to Henry Phippard, a Sydney builder (with his brother, Ernest, they had built the Queen Victoria Building), and built a large homestead on Nungatta.

However his attempt to run pigs was a failure, and in 1923 sold it to Traralgon graziers, Dunbar, Dunbar and Napier, who were later joined by David Walker, father of Alan Walker of Palarang. They successfully raised cattle, droving them to Traralgon to fatten them.

In 1946 they sold Nungatta to the Osbornes from Bungendore who used managers to run sheep and cattle. Gil McIntosh and Paul Gimbert were two of the managers in recent times.

Paul recounted some of his memories of his time at Nungatta. In 2013 Ben Campbell bought part of the property while James Osborne retained the south western portion.

The group then went and inspected the Homestead, which has fallen into disrepair, but it was evident that it had been a magnificent house when it was built.

Next was the woolshed where Keith Brownlie and John Podger, who had worked there during shearing, recalled some interesting incidents that had occurred.

Following lunch the group went to the cemetery where Alexander Weatherhead, some of his family and some workmen were buried, before continuing to South Nungatta.

South Nungatta was split off Nungatta in 1907 and run by Charles McCoy. Between 1919 and 1970 the Browns owned it and since 1972 the Nungatta South Group has owned it. They are a Melbourne Group who want to run it as a Conservation Reserve.

The group then proceeded to Wangabelle where Dot de Geus gave the history of Wangabelle from a thriving dairy community with a school of over 100 pupils to the present time where there are about 15 beef cattle farms.

The group also looked at the cemetery where descendants of the original settler Captain Stevenson are buried. Captain Stevenson himself is buried in Rockton.

This was the conclusion of a very successful day.

Schoolies go for scenic alternative

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

Latrece De Thier of Logan, Elizabeth McNulty of Greenbank and Dale Sinkowski of Jimboomba enjoyed a peaceful Schoolies Week experience at Lake Moogerah.SCHOOL leavers are enjoying thepeace and quiet of the Scenic Rim as an alternative to the bright lights of Surfers Paradise for Schoolies Week.
Nanjing Night Net

Parklands Christian College graduates Latrece De Thier, Elizabeth McNulty, Dale Sinkowski and Josiah Gray have opted for a week of camping at Lake Moogerah to celebrate finishing year 12.

The group of friends, all 17, are swapping the popular Schoolies Week experience of alcohol and partying for waterskiing, mountain climbing, board games and football at Lake Moogerah.

Elizabeth said she and her friends decided to go camping at Lake Moogerah because they preferred the atmosphere there.

“It’s a lot more peaceful and it’s safer,” she said.

“It’s quiet here and it’s just easier to relax here with your best mates.”

Latrece said alcohol would not be a part of the group’s Schoolies experience.

“You just do stupid stuff when you have alcohol and we want to remember our time here,” she said.

Warm weekend for reborn Music Festival

Tuesday, 16 April, 2019

The new Majors Creek Festival, held on the weekend, was a resounding success in every way, according to organisers. While final figures are not yet in, gate takings and pre-paid ticket sales indicate that attendance numbers have far exceeded expectations. The festival committee have received nothing but praise for presenting a well-organised festival with something for everyone.
Nanjing Night Net

Despite the heat on Saturday, people came in their droves and enjoyed the varied music program and markets. Many day visitors came from the local region and weekend camping space was at a premium.

Headline acts Kristina Olsen, Heath Cullen, Owen Campbell and Riogh were popular, as was the addition of the relaxing Lounge Stage complete with wine bar. The kids’ festival in the centre of the festival site, was perfectly placed for children and parents, who could keep an eye on their offspring and still enjoy the music from the Braidwood Community Bank Main Stage or Lounge.

‘Loved the new site…. Don’t change a thing’ was heard on more than one occasion. While there will be some minor tweaking to the festival site in future, the committee will take heed and change little. And yes, it will definitely be back next year!

The festival committee is grateful to the Braidwood/Majors Creek community – and the incredible team of volunteers – for supporting the rebirth of this popular event on the festival calendar.

Athletes to test themselves at Gala Day

Tuesday, 16 April, 2019

THE Glen Innes Little Athletics and Athletics clubs will hold their gala day at King George Oval on Sunday November 30.
Nanjing Night Net

Events will kick off at 8:30am and juniors are still able to register for any events they want to enter if they are interested in competing by getting down to the oval prior to the start of events.

Leteisha Hope from Glen Innes Athletics said there will also be senior’s events for senior athletes or even for parents who would like to have a go at an event on the day.

“We have seniors as well, and the best thing is that seniors don’t have to be registered they can just do a trial membership if they want to, and that’s great for parents who may want to compete but may only go to one or two events with their kids to get out and have a go,”

“Juniors can still register on the day for $10 and they can enter as many events as they want.”

Hope said they are expecting a good turnout for the day with other clubs already showing interest in having athletes travel to town for the event.

“We usually get athletes from Woolgoolga, Armidale, and Inverell and we’ve had them come from as far as Narrabri to compete, but it just depends,” she said.

“We should get a fair few, we’ve had other clubs such as Inverell and Armidale already enquiring about events and wanting to get a schedule.”

The Glen Innes Athletics club is still open to registrations and has regular meets at King George Oval each Friday at 4pm.

Rangers work hard

Tuesday, 16 April, 2019

DETERMINED: Ricky Clark on the mound for Gawler Rangers on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

After losing badly to undefeated Henley & Grange the previous week, Gawler Rangers faced the same opponent away on Saturday in division three baseball and worked hard for a better result.

Instead of being shutout and hit-less, the Rangers managed to score three times and collected three hits, as well as seven walks.

And if it wasn’t for conceding five runs in the final inning, Gawler played competitive baseball against the premiership favourites.

Over the first three innings, Ricky Clark was solid on the mound, restricting the powerful Rams bats to just five earned runs, while relief pitcher Thomas Norley was effective early before getting in trouble in the final frame.

In the fourth inning the Rangers threatened to score, with back-to-back one-out hits from Shaun Clark and Paul Skelton, but both were left stranded.

Then led by Toby Ryan’s big hit and a bunch of walks, Gawler made an impact on the scoreboard with three runs in the fifth frame, to trail 8-3.

Interestingly, the Rams starting pitcher was former Adelaide Crows ruckman, and a junior baseballer, Rhett Biglands.

In conditions more suitable for ducks, the Rangers division four team went down 15-1 to Henley & Grange.

Chris Mayfield collected the side’s only hit, in the third inning, and scored on Rob Gill’s error-forcing infield hit.

The C grade’s game was not completed, with Gawler trailing 4-1 after two innings of play, Sean Flintoff picking up the only hit and run for the Rangers.

While the under 17s and under 15s had byes, Little League Minors went down 16-11 to East Torrens, with Kaleb McKenzie belting a long home run, and Little League Majors lost 16-8 to Henley & Grange, Morris O’Handley and Jayden Gill batting 1000.

Funding allocated to Castletown Quays

Tuesday, 16 April, 2019

Rehab: The foreshore along Castletown Quays will receive a face lift.A PROJECT to address environmental degradation along Castle town Quays has received funding from the state government.
Nanjing Night Net

Funding for the Castletown Quays Rehabilitation Project is set to finalise a site plan and implement on-ground works.

The coastal rehabilitation project was among 29 awarded funding under the state government’s Coastwest and Coastal Management Plan Assistance programs, and received $38,088.

Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region Dave Grills said the funding would allow the local government and community-based groups to implement works to help sustain the region’s beautiful coastal zone.

“These grants provide groups the opportunity to continue taking action to preserve and protect areas of coastline facing environmental and human pressures,” Mr Grills said.

He said the area was deteriorating due to unmanaged use, wind erosion and weeds resulting in degradation of the dunes.

The project has been managed by the Shire of Esperance and Esperance Weed Action Group, with input from Esperance Nyungar Aboriginal Corporation, Castletown Primary School and a local residents group.

South Coast Natural Resource Management coastal-marine and water program leader Dylan Gleave said rehabilitation, weed control, fencing and signage for access were priorities along the Castletown foreshore.

Nelligen Doctor freshens the Barefoot Bowls

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

On Friday night just as the sea-breeze, or the Nelligen doctor, arrived the Community Bank Bare-foot Bowls competition was under way after a very hot day, in what turned out to be a very pleasant evening and a lot fun. There was some difficulties caused at the start when some those who played last week did not turn up but when a team was missing fortunately a new team arrived, and Phil Lewis and Peter Camiller soon sorted out a few new recruits to fill the gaps in some teams.
Nanjing Night Net

Out on the green each team was given a rink to play on and a team to play on a rotating weekly roster.

The beauty of the night is the wide range of the age of the players being from children aged about nine to one lady in her late seventies and it was great to see so many families playing together and it was pleasing to see all the kids running around the vacant green having a lot of fun.

Laurie Riley is doing a great job coaching the C.W.A. ladies & he had time to pass his wisdom onto some of the players on an adjoining rink as well as coaching their opposing team, a great effort Laurie.

The team to win the Community Bank $200-00 this week was the Landmark team, and when play finished as it got dark all the players adjourned to the Barbecue area where Barry Broadbent, Gordon Shorrock, Gorrie Kite & President Phil had the sausages, onions and bread ready for all to participate in.

With still two weeks to go of the bare-foot bowls carnival to go come and try your luck in an evening fun.

Remember Bowlers are not old they just live longer.

Serious observations from the older hands at the Bowls Club.

Team Landmark show some form.

Nanjing Night Net

STUART Little, centre, is facing a long recovery of treatment after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. He is pictured with the band “The Budgie Smugglers”, David Sleath and Mike Brady, who will play at a special fund-raiser this Friday night.

Stuart, an apprentice at Lawrence’s Garage, is currently travelling to Tamworth daily for treatment and doesn’t qualify for the isolated patient allowance as the distance is under 100km.

The Gunnedah Miners Support Group has set up a trust account in Stuart’s name to raise funds to help him with medical costs.

The Barbers Way have backed the cause and are running “100 clubs” to raise further funds and a fund-raising committee has been set up to organise events for Stuart.

The committee are holding a “Rock n Roll” night this Friday, which will include an auction and entertainment from the Budgie Smugglers.

The event will be held at the Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club auditorium from 6pm and will cost $25 per person. Tickets are available from the club office or Gunnedah First National.

Tickets include a two course meal and entertainment.

2MO has donated a $1000 advertising package to the cause to be sold in the auction, which will also include items such as a two seater lounge, accommodation package, men’s Bolle sunglasses and vouchers.

If anyone has items to be donated to the auction they can be dropped at Gunnedah First National or Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club.

Stuart is very greatful for the generous support of the Gunnedah community and hopes to see everyone for a fun night.

“Get in and get your tickets, you do not want to miss out on a pre Christmas celebration with Stuart and the Budgees,” committee member Fiona Moore said.

Nanjing Night Net

The club’s foyer has undergone a massive transformation, giving the club a fresh new look going forward. The new look features a water feature and a new memorial and eternal flame as well as a brand new reception.

The new foyer was officially unveiled on Friday by Services Club president Russell Meehan, and general manager Pat Lonergan said club staff are very happy with the finished result of the new foyer which took approximately 10 weeks to complete.

“It’s come up really well, we’re very happy with it,” Mr Lonergan said.

“It is the first thing people see so it’s nice to have it looking all fresh and new, we are now hoping to look at doing some work inside now.”

Mr Longeran said the memorial – which was officially opened by RSL sub-branch president Gordon Taylor – is a mix of old and new.

“All the marble is new, the rest of it came from the original memorial garden so it was just cleaned up and modernised,” he said.

Vet Surgery celebrates 25 years

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

Greg and Nicola moved to Braidwood in August 1989 and established the Braidwood Veterinary Surgery in Wallace Street, in part of the building that is now Eureka Pizzeria. Greg’s great friend, Tom Burns (who many will recall), an Irish equine veterinarian assisted him during the first few horse stud seasons. It soon became a very busy large animal practice servicing the district, including two large thoroughbred studs, Charleston Stud (standing Zephyr Zip) and Strathallen Stud, belonging to the Lavis family (standing the legendary Whiskey Road).
Nanjing Night Net

Owners Nicola and Greg Gilbert (sitting with Hugo) with Staff Camille, Danielle, Donna and Katie.

Over the next few years the business outgrew its premises and relocated next door into the building next to the church, 85 Wallace Street. This was a great location for many years and saw the business develop into a well-equipped three veterinarian practice.

In January 2011 the business relocated to the brand new purpose built A class hospital in the old shell depot on Araluen Road. This location has been the perfect site, particularly for its large parking area, room for stock trucks, and space for hospitalised large animals in outside yards, and large dog runs.

The building has been built to both Building Code Standards, with disabled facilities, public toilets, as well as Veterinary Board Standards, with on-site undercover equine reproduction facilities, two undercover stables and day yard for all large animals. Key services within the building include digital x-ray, ultrasound, in house pathology laboratory and state of the art operating theatre. The business continues to provide a 24 hour emergency service and employs three Veterinarians, a Practice Manager, an Accredited Veterinary Nurse and a Trainee Veterinary Nurse.

Braidwood Veterinary Surgery has come a long way in 25 years and would like to invite all their clients to their birthday celebration on 4th December from 6pm – 10pm.

Local Giving Box appeal launched

Saturday, 16 March, 2019

GIVING BOX: Pictured at the Port Augusta Target store are mayor Sam Johnson, store manager Jackie Barker, local UnitingCare coordinator Helen Mullion and service assistant Sarah Donnellan. Port Augusta’s Target store and UnitingCare are partnering once again in an effort to spread Christmas cheer through the Giving Box appeal.
Nanjing Night Net

The appeal encourages the community to buy gifts and make donations to help children who otherwise may have nothing to unwrap on Christmas morning.

A large ‘Giving Box’ will be displayed at the front of every Target store, and shoppers are encouraged to place unwrapped gifts inside or take a bauble gift tag to make a donation at the register.

The Target and UnitingCare Giving Box appeal (formerly Operation Santa) launched on November 6 and will run through until Christmas Eve.

The appeal is in its 23rd year and thanks to the support of generous Australians, has distributed over 1.7 million gifts.

Local UnitingCare coordinator Helen Million said there are many families in our community who are going to find it really tough to provide gifts for their children this year.

“We rely on fellow locals to dig deep, so please support our appeal at Target Port Augusta,” she said.

“We make sure that all donated gifts go to local families.”

UnitingCare staff and volunteers collect the gifts and ensure they are distributed to those most in need in time for Christmas morning.

Target managing director Stuart Machin encouraged all Target customers to help brighten someone’s Christmas by donating a gift or a card.

“We’re proud to continue our long tradition of partnering with UnitingCare to help the less fortunate at Christmas,” he said.

“Through their network of over 1,600 service sites across the country, UnitingCare will ensure we deliver gifts to families across Australia who need them most.

“With Christmas just around the corner, an overwhelming number of families in Australia will be feeling anxiety over the lack of resources to buy Christmas gifts for their children.

It’s expected this Christmas that nearly 600,000 Australian children will be living in poverty; an additional 40,000 will be living in out-of-home care and away from their families for a range of reasons.

Over 26,000 families benefited from the appeal last year, and this year organisers are hoping to assist and support even more struggling families.
