Overpass is go

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.

The conversation ends on Wednesday night

Nanjing Night Net

The resource person for the evening was Daniel Jeffares who spent years as an economist before making the transition to high school economics teacher.

The consensus from the group was the current economic system isn’t working for all Australians and the measure of gross domestic product (GDP) shouldn’t be our main measure of progress as it only measures financial progress.

The fact the gap between the rich and poor is growing was of great concern; however, the point was made that Australians earning $36,000 per year or more fall into the top 2.7 per cent of wealthiest people in the world.

Despite this, the majority of the population has little to no control over the direction of the economy.

Conversation attendee James Saville said part of the problem was how hard it was to find actual solutions.

“We’re saying society has a very seriously problem,” he said.

“There’s no motivation to change anything for the people in power.

“There’s a growing body of people who are aware that we’re facing a massive problem.”

The final Conversations About Tomorrow evening will be held on Wednesday night and will ask the question of what is in a footprint.

Nanjing Night Net

IT has been revealed that a horse died at the Bong Bong Picnic Races on Friday.

Palestrina, ridden by jockey Nyssa Burrells and trained by Sam Kavanagh, ran into the running rail during the Gallenen Maiden Plate over 1000 metres.

A report of the incident was compiled by South East Racing chief steward Jim Walsh.

According to available evidence, Palestrina “made contact” with the running rail and injured its right shoulder.

Palestrina sustained a severe laceration and, according to the report, the filly was “humanely euthanised”.

Walsh told the Southern Highland News that the death, in his view, was a “rare event” in horse racing in NSW.

“We take all manners available to reduce horse deaths in racing,” he said.

“It is an unfortunate part of racing.”

More than 6500 people attended the Bong Bong Picnic Races.

Despite the hot conditions, four track records for fastest times were broken at the event.

The main race, the Macarthur Square Fashions Bong Bong Cup, was won by New Zealand import Tradtri.

Ridden by jockey Billy Owen, Tradtri galloped to win from Damysus and Frankenbeans.

The other big winner on Friday was jockey Tim Phillips, who rode four winners.

Trainer Donna Grisedale had three winning horses.

Gunnedah doctor’s difficult journey

Friday, 17 May, 2019

One of Gunnedah’s newest doctors, Ruben Karalisingham, is an Australian success story.
Nanjing Night Net

Dr Ruben Karalisingham is now working in Gunnedah.

Dr Karalisingham was a young Sri Lankan medical student struggling to gain his qualifications during the Sri Lankan Civil War.

For every week the university was open, he said it was shut for at least another three months as the country struggled with violence and conflict.

He said political groups urged students to join violent protests until a police presence was required at each university.

Eventually, police could not keep pace with the conflicts as well as guard the universities, so the universities closed.

“I was halfway through medical school,” Dr Karalisingham said.

“I was lucky my uncle was a GP in Melbourne.”

In 1989, he migrated to Australia where he attended university in Sydney and completed his medical degree.

He said he was fortunate to arrive when he did, with many migrant doctors now finding it difficult to have their qualifications recognised.

“There are still many migrants facing hardship,” he said. “They are still driving trams to buy food for their children.”

Dr Karalisingham worked as a doctor in Sydney, but wanted the country experience of working across a wide range of medical areas, so has worked in about 13 different towns in NSW, including Mudgee, Parkes, Inverell, Glen Innes, Bathurst and Cowra.

“I consider all that is a positive thing,” he said.

“Not everyone has the luxury of working in 15 hospitals.

“Country towns are all different. They all operate differently.

“I have been fortunate enough to work with different nurses and different staff. You get a wide variety of experience.”

He has also worked full-time in Warren in central NSW, but returned to Sydney while his daughter went to high school.

Because he still wanted to work in the country, Dr Karlisingham worked as a locum at Gunnedah’s hospital for three years, completing a week’s work in Sydney and travelling up to Gunnedah two weekends a month.

Now that his daughter has finished high school, Dr Karlisingham has returned to Gunnedah to work full-time.

“A lot of things attract me to rural areas,” he said.

“One of the things that makes me like a country town is that you can look after patients here and when they are at the hospital.

“It is a big bonus. When you are in big cities, you can’t do that, because there are specialists and other people who

work there.

“Here, it is right next door.”

Dr Karalisingham said while he enjoyed all aspects of general practice, he had been prompted to find a way to do more for his patients suffering chronic pain.

While living in Warren, he travelled to Sydney on weekends to study acupuncture and said he believed acupuncture could help ease the chronic pain of some patients.

“I find it works well for muscular skeletal complaints,” he said.

“It is a practice used all over the world.

“I still practice western medicine to the maximum, but when there is chronic pain, I might do acupuncture to relieve that pain.

“It never cures anything, but it can reduce the level of pain.”

Dr Karalisingham said he saw the need for the practice when patients in Warren came to him with chronic pain who often had to wait a year for an operation.

Reducing the pain could reduce the dependence of the patient on painkillers.

Dr Karalisingham said he was enjoying the country life and had been happy to come to Gunnedah, the town he had come to know the best during his time as a locum to country hospitals.

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.
