The 25-year-old’s body was found on Tuesday morning at the Overlander Motor Lodge, sparking an operation named Strike Force Neweena.

Oxley crime manager Inspector Phil O’Reilly said police were still

awaiting the results of a post-mortem to determine the exact cause of

death.

“That may take some time,” Inspector O’Reilly said.

Homicide squad detectives arrived in Gunnedah last Tuesday night following the discovery and police confirmed that day they were treating the matter as suspicious.

A man had been questioned by police, but no charges have been laid.

Police have also talked to witnesses.

Tamworth and Gunnedah police are continuing to investigate the death.

The Australian finalists in this year’s Global Battle Of the Bands will musically joust tomorrow night at Mounties.

The competition will see 18 bands, including Sydney trio Raging Waters, perform for a place in the world tournament.

Tony Deveaux, guitarist and vocalist for Raging Waters, said the group was appreciative they had made it this far.

“It’s a big, real competition for bands like us,” he said. “Once you’re in it anything can happen.”

“We would like to be the first Australian band to win it, but even if we don’t, it’s still great exposure.”

The group, including Greg Griffiths on bass and Tony Boyd on drums, has been playing together for seven years, but only recently started to go under the name Raging Waters.

“That describes what our sound is like. It’s like something coming at you,” Mr Deveaux said.

“We’re a little bit different. We play classic rock in a modern way.”

The lead singer and songwriter has written more than 300 songs and hopes to one day get a publishing deal writing for a mainstream company.

For now though, the aim is relatively simple: share the music and rock on.

“All bands are being regulated somehow, but we want to do it our own way. It’s all about freedom.”

Competition prizes include three days recording at Melbourne’s Black Pearl Studios, Labelstate T-shirts, Chuck Taylor Converse products and a trip to the world finals.

Thefinal will be held at Mounties, Mt Pritchard, at 7pm on November 27. Tickets are $20.

Post builds confidence

Job ready: Sonia Prakash is not letting illness stop her from getting a job. She completed work experience with Werriwa MP Laurie Ferguson though the Northcott Transition to Work program.DURING her teenage years battling bipolar disorder and anxiety, Sonia Prakash couldn’t imagine being able to hold a steady job.

Now at age 20 Ms Prakash is not letting illness hold her back and is taking part in a transition to work program.

Ms Prakash, who lives in Gregory Hills, has worked for Werriwa MP Laurie Ferguson over the past six weeks doing data entry and other work.

“It’s been a great experience and I’m enjoying learning all about politics and the important role administration plays in bringing it all together,” Ms Prakash said. “I’ve had lots of discussions with staff members about topics ranging from welfare changes to Medicare.”

She also travelled to Canberra to gain an insight into the politician’s work.

Bipolar disorder is often diagnosed in people who experience extreme mood swings that can last hours or days.

The Northcott Transition to Work program helps school leavers with a disability gain skills that will enable them to find and keep a job.

Mr Ferguson said he invited Ms Prakash to do work experience because he saw it as an opportunity to build confidence and experience a work environment.

“There’s a lot of stereotypes and misunderstanding in the community about disability,” Mr Ferguson said.

“Many employers often think because people have a disability that they have only limitations when there are a lot of things they can do.”

WILTON’S Glenn Allerton capitalised on his home-ground advantage to take second place in the final round of the 2014 Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike Championship series at Sydney Motorsport Park at the weekend.

Allerton claimed third, second and fourth place in his three races to get 60 points and a second place finish in the round results.

He mustered 314 points over the series to take fourth place in the overall championship standings.

The Wilton racer has experienced some good moments on the track this year, including winning his third Australian Superbike Championship, in July, at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in Victoria.

“The championship was very fast this year,” he said.

“I had done a lot of training and practise so I fully expected to win, but there is always the unknown of motorsport.”

The former Camden High School student won the event in 2008 for Honda and 2011 for BMW.

Allerton told the Advertiser he could hardly believe he had notched up his third Australian Superbike Championship win.

“When I was a kid in school it was my dream to be a champion at bike racing,” he said.

“It was something I thought about all the time and to be living my childhood dream feels great.”

He started racing dirt bikes in 1988 and his passion for motorsport grew. He continued to race until he broke his leg.

“I broke my leg in a big crash in Adelaide which set me back,” he said.

“I always liked watching Mick Doohan on television, so I decided to give road racing a go after my leg healed.”

Allerton feels he made the right call when he took up racing road bikes in 2001.

“At the time the broken leg was a bad thing,” he said.

“But now I look at it as a blessing because I then went on a path which led me to become three time Australian Superbike champion.”

He has set his sights on racing on the international stage, including taking part in future World Superbike Championships.

Stop using verbal gymnastics over ABC cuts, backbencher urges PM

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has denied using “verbal gymnastics” over cuts to the ABC after one of his own MPs urged him to call a spade a spade and stop denying the government had broken its election promise.

Liberal MP Craig Laundy, who is well respected by his colleagues, raised the issue in the partyroom on Tuesday, several sources told Fairfax Media, on the condition of anonymity because they are not allowed to publicly comment on what takes place.

But in an encounter closely watched by MPs, Mr Abbott told his backbencher that he’d never said the ABC would be exempt from an efficiency dividend.

One MP said it was taken very badly by many Liberals who worry the Prime Minister is losing touch and refusing to listen to his backbench.

But two other sources were more favourable and said the Prime Minister didn’t slap down Mr Laundy.

Mr Laundy, who could not be reached for comment, is said to have told the Prime Minister he was willing to go out and argue the case in his marginal Sydney seat and was prepared to lose it for the right causes.

But the Member for Reid urged the Prime Minister to stop pretending the government had not clearly pledged the night before the election not to cut the ABC’s funding.

Mr Abbott told SBS on the night before last year’s election there would be “no cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no chance to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS” if the Coalition was elected to government.

In question time on Tuesday, Labor seized on the government’s refusal to acknowledge the pledge and asked Mr Abbott: “Prime Minister, no-one will own up to making that statement.  Does the Prime Minister have any idea who said it?”

Mr Abbott said “of course I made that statement” and under pressure compared his promise to former Labor treasurer Wayne Swan who consistently promised a budget surplus he never delivered.

Earlier on Tuesday about 300 protesters rallied on the lawns in front of Parliament House against the cuts.

Lisa Robins, an environmental consultant from Canberra, waved a banner reading “Two-faced Tony” and ‘Hands off Bush Tele” in defence of the ABC’s national rural radio program Bush Telegraph, which was named among the programs to be chopped.

“I fear for free speech in Australia and for where our democracy is heading,” Dr Robins said.

“Tony Abbott was always having a go at Julia Gillard, [saying] who is the real Julia Gillard. Well, who is the real Tony?”

“I work in the natural resource management sphere and Bush Telegraph is one of the best pathways we have for communicating what’s happening in rural Australia.”

The opposition’s communications spokesman Jason Clare addressed the demonstration and said voters detested politicians lying about lies.

He led a recital of Tony Abbott’s infamous pledge that there would be no cuts to the ABC or SBS if elected.

“No ifs, no buts, no ABC cuts,” the protesters chanted.

Mr Clare also mocked the government frontbench by apologising for their absence at the rally.

“I have a few apologies I have to give. The first is Christopher Pyne,” Mr Clare said.

“Christopher says he is busy.

“He is reading all the comments that have been made on his petition.

Mr Pyne launched a petition on change.org last week to protect the ABC’s Adelaide production unit.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, who was called upon but has not committed to Labor restoring the funds in full if elected, told the rally Mr Abbott had “made himself a bigger man than he is” through his regular attacks on lies in politics while he was in opposition”.

“Never has a politician in modern history pinned so much of his own character to the issue of not telling lies in politics,” Mr Shorten said.

“He was merciless in opposition. He made himself a bigger man than he is by saying he would be different.

“Now, what we have is this attack on the ABC. It is not just an attack on an Australian institution, it shows you that this PM has no commitment to keeping his promise with Australian democracy.”

Mr Shorten said the cuts amounted to the effective censorship of independent broadcasting in Australia.

The CPSU, which represents ABC staff, called on the government to release the efficiency review into the ABC on which the further funding cuts are based and vowed to “go hard” against management.
