Editorial: Be bush fire ready

Monday, 16 September, 2019

MAKE a fire escape plan for all your family, prepare for bush fire season, take care when setting up Christmas lights and check the battery in your smoke alarm to make sure it is working.
Nanjing Night Net

These are all fire safety messages that have become commonplace in recent years.

They are invaluable messages that should never be overlooked, but despite this fact they are too often brushed to one side as something we will consider later.

But such complacency could mean the difference between life and death.

Right now is the time to be fire wise, regardless of whether you live in a bushland area or in suburbia.

In October 2013 alone bushfires destroyed 200 homes and resulted in two deaths as six blazes burned across eastern NSW.

And the threat of bush fires in NSW does not look like diminishing as we head in to the 2014/15 summer season.

All fire permits have been suspended in the Wingecarribee Shire from December 1 until further notice due to a forecast for hot, dry and windy conditions.

However, the threat of bush fire is not the only type of blaze that should concern people.

According to Australia’s leading smoke alarm specialist Smoke Alarms Australia one in two NSW households has a non-working smoke alarm, and nearly one in three households have no working smoke alarm at all.

Smoke Alarms Australia general manager Troy Thompson has warned that these statistics were particularly worrying during the festive season considering Christmas lights were the major household fire danger in summer.

With these facts in mind it would seem that there is no time like the present for all households to get fire wise. If you live near bushland then now is the time to make a bush fire plan and work to protect your property against a possible blaze.

Meanwhile, every household should check that they have working smoke alarms and a fire escape plan in place which can easily be understood by all the family.

New race rules no good
Nanjing Night Net

HAVING attended Bong Bong Picnic Races for the last 15 years with a lovely atmosphere and no trouble from fellow racegoers, I was very disappointed with the new rules and regulations pertaining to the purchase of alcohol.

It is not the aim to discourage over-consumption or misbehaviour I objected to – that is to be commended, but the way in which it was implemented.

To ban sales of bottled wine after 1 pm only resulted in a bun rush for the bar which resembled the old days of the “six o’clock swill”.

Some of the small group (5) I was with were not able to get to the races before 12.30 due to work committments and by the time we parked, had bags searched and walked to our spot it was almost 1 o’clock.

The queues at the bar on the roadside of the track were almost out to the front gate.

We didn’t bother joining them.

I estimated at least 50 per cent of the crowd were mature local residents who are quite capable of conducting themselves properly at an event which allows alcohol and it is a pity that we could not enjoy a couple of bottles of wine with our picnic.

At around 3.30 I went to the bar hoping to buy a cold G and T only to find everything had run out, with the exception of lite beer and the cheapest sparkling wine.

The day ended for us at 5.30 and on leaving the gates were subjected to a search of bags for alcohol again on the WAY OUT.

A very officious police woman confiscated a bottle of champagne from a woman going out in front of us.

Am I missing something here? With respect it sounds a bit like an Irish joke.

I know I risk being labelled alcohol dependent. Not the case, just can’t understand why we can’t buy a bottle of wine at an event such as this.

I notice the numbers were really down this year which is defeating the object of having the event on a Friday to attract more people (including visitors from Sydney who will make a weekend of it and spend money in the district.)

The Sydneysiders I spoke to couldn’t believe the archaic arrangements when trying to buy a bottle of wine.

Perhaps it could be better managed next year?

A friendly train trip

TRAVELLING down to Sydney last Friday on the train, I was reminded how our rail service has changed in the last few years.

The driver on the Campbelltown run, was on his final day, celebrating 39 years of service.

At the Bowral, Mittagong and Picton stations extra rail staff were there on hand to congratulate the driver who responded in a gracious way.

As we approached Macarthur Station, our guard communicated over the speaker system that those passengers continuing to the city should disembark at Macarthur station as on-going passengers would find it much easier than disembarking at Campbelltown.

Back in the fifties, the then Railway Commissioner Reg Windsor claimed that the “Rail Way was the Safe Way”.

These days we could also say … “The Rail Way was the Friendly Way.”

Thank you

I WOULD like to say thank you to the kind woman at Moss Vale IGA who paid for my shopping on Monday morning when I forgot my purse while out with my baby.

I was very touched by her generosity and hope to have the opportunity to show the same kindness to another one day.

Thank you

Gratitude is good

CHURCHES occasionally hold special thanksgiving services, but regardless of people’s religious affiliations, or lack of them, many people see it as important for their well-being to express gratitude for blessings.

In our modern society, the word “blessings” is under-used.

When something good happens, it is much more common to hear someone say, “that was good luck” than to say “that’s a blessing”.

On the surface, these two responses might appear interchangeable, but there’s a big difference between them.

Luck is, by definition, notoriously unreliable, whereas the notion of blessing is based on the existence of a constant, dependable source of good – in the same way as the principle of mathematics is always available and reliable for anyone to apply.

As a young newly-wed living in London, I began to suffer from homesickness, loneliness and depression.

I was in an English-speaking country, yet so many things felt foreign.

I had a loving husband, a good job and was beginning to make new friends, but the negative feelings were overwhelming.

When I began analysing these feelings, I realised I had succumbed to self-pity and loneliness because I missed my parents.

Then came the thought that they hadn’t stopped loving me, just because I was 12,000 miles away.

Love couldn’t be restricted to any place or person and, like the principle of mathematics, had to be right there where I was, as well as where my parents were.

The feeling of gratitude at this realisation swept away the gloom and allowed me to experience the good that had always been there – but note that the gratitude came first.

I came to understand why Mary Baker Eddy, writing over 150 years ago in her seminal book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, defined God as “the divine principle, love”, a reliable source of good to everyone, everywhere.

In other words, gratitude is good – for us!

That is why I will be attending my church’s annual thanksgiving service.

You will be very welcome too if you would like to join us at the Christian Science Church, corner of Bowral and Bendooley Sts, on Thursday, November 27 at 11am.

Dodging bullets

Monday, 16 September, 2019

Sue Flannery and caretaker of her grandfather’s war memorabilia Trevor Brooker and the Dutch bibleTrevor Brooker is big on history and war memorabilia so when he was given a Dutch bible from the Boar War he was thrilled.
Nanjing Night Net

The book belonged to Sue Flannery’s grandfather Robert Scobie who was killed, along with 2000 other Australians, at Lone Pine during the First World War.

It is 100mm thick (four inches in the old scale) and is very ornate and held closed by two locks.

“The interesting thing about the book is that there are two bullet holes though it,” Trevor said.

The two very visible bullet holes

“It was kept in a saddlebag which also had the same bullet holes through the front.

“I believe the book was a souvenir from the Boar War which went from 1899 to 1902 where Robert fought.”

Scobie saw active service as an officer commanding B Company 4th Infrantry Regiment in the war and was promoted to captain.

Robert Scobie

The bible, written in Dutch, is a combination of the old and new testaments and was published on January 28, 1851.

The book, along with numerous other war memorabilia, will be donated to the Dungog Historical Society to be displayed in the museum for their World War 1 centenary display next year.

Barossa and Light cricket

Monday, 16 September, 2019

A ferocious spell by young Angaston speedster Ben Antonie saw him collect three of the last four South Gawler wickets to fall early on day two of a rain-shortened match.
Nanjing Night Net

RUNS: Angaston’s Shaun Woodards plays a leg glance on his way to a top score of 58 to help his side to a win over South Gawler.

The Lions added just 12 runs to its day one total before the Blues hit their way to 194 with Shaun Woodards (58), Scott Rathjen (30) and Ben Burgess (38) doing the bulk of the work.

Patrick White was the best of the Lions bowlers taking 4/31 before the Lions snuck in six overs of big hitting practice on their way to 2/50 with their captain Brodie Barker exploding for 28 not out.

After finishing day one on a solid 4/100, Kapunda tumbled to 8/142 by the end of their 58 overs as Gilbert Valley wrested the momentum from the Bombers.

Kym Vandeleur continued his hot form with a 45-run knock to pace the Bulls to 130 but it wasn’t enough to get them over the line.

A strong effort by Rob Johnson 5/54 (including the key wicket of Vandeleur) helped drag the Bombers to victory.

In A1 reserves, a telling 83-run innings by Richard Mattner carried Light Pass (5/180 to a win over Eudunda/Robertstown (9/169).

BEST: South Gawler’s Patrick White in action against Angaston. He finished with 4/38 but it wasn’t enough to grab a South win.

In A2, Angaston (6/183) held off Tanunda (125).

Jayden Antonie (40) and Matt Blenkiron (57 not out) set the Blues on course for victory last week before Blenkiron (3/52) and Ben Klemm (3/28) finished the job.

After restricting Nuriootpa to just 8/118 from 50 overs in A3, an even batting card saw Light Pass comfortably amass 135 thanks to Marty Gallasch (26), Steven Gallasch (32) and Karl Nitschke (28).

After being sent back to familiar territory after his cracking 154 not out a few weeks ago Andrew Nash, batting at nine chipped in with 28.

Gilbert Valley (5/206) outlasted Kapunda (176) despite Corey Ryan nailing 64 runs along with Danny Menzel (46) but yet another duck from Kym Jarman late in the innings cost the Bombers dearly.

A 50 from team captain Craig Hadden has certainly helped his very young Angaston side (141) outlast Gilbert Valley at Riverton in A4.

Intersection named Esperance’s most dangerous

Monday, 16 September, 2019

Risky road: The intersection of Pink Lake Road and Harbour Road has been labelled the most dangerous in Esperance.THE difficulty in crossing Harbour Road to get to Pink Lake Road is just one of the reasons the intersection has been labelled Esperance’s most dangerous road.
Nanjing Night Net

According to a survey into Western Australia’s riskiest roads, the intersection of Pink Lake Road and Harbour Road has been named as the area’s most dangerous but many people have now questioned whether it is the roads or the drivers that are to blame for making the roads unsafe.

The RAC released its results from its 2014 Risky Roads campaign, which identifies the community’s views on the state’s most dangerous regional roads.

According to the risky roads survey results the reason the intersection was named the most dangerous was because of the difficulty in crossing Harbour Road to get to Pink Lake Road and the difficulty in joining high speed traffic.

Traffic lights were suggested as a way to improve safety at the intersection, according to the results.

However, the site was just one of many that Esperance residents deemed as dangerous.

The Esperance Express asked readers which roads or intersections were the most dangerous in Esperance and out of the 33 responses that were received, seven highlighted the Pink Lake and Harbour Road intersection as Esperance’s most dangerous.

Other dangerous spots raised by members of the public included Easton Road due to the lack of street lighting, Smith Street because of the no right turn, Mungan Street and Harbour Road due to fences blocking drivers’ sight lines in both directions, Arthur Street at the roundabout end because no one stopped to give way and the top of Arthur Street and Easton Road because drivers couldn’t see the vehicles entering the roundabout due to a hedge which blocks the view of drivers.

But some locals questioned whether there were any unsafe roads at all.

“Is it the roads or the drivers that are the problem?” one Facebook user wrote while another said “I haven’t seen any unsafe roads, just unsafe drivers”.

Police agreed.

Senior Sergeant Richard Moore did not think traffic lights would alleviate the problem and said drivers needed to follow the road rules, drive to the conditions and be patient.

Snr Sgt Moore said police had seen, on many occasions, drivers failing to come to a halt at stop signs at the intersection and he believed drivers would continue to flout the road rules even if traffic lights were introduced.

He said whether it was give way or stop signs or traffic lights, some drivers would ignore the warnings.

“We know that people don’t stop at stop signs,” Snr Sgt Moore said.

Meanwhile, Snr Sgt Moore warned drivers flouting the road rules would be caught and would be issued with infringement notices from police.
