Taking a short break from his recording session, Grunwald picked up the phone to be immediately asked about whether or not he felt there was added pressure to his new album due to the outstanding success of his last few.

“There’s pressure in my process, I tell you that,” Grunwald said.

He went on to recount how making a new album was like a double edged sword when it was based on past work, as the bar is raised for his expectations of himself and his music.

“You never want to go backwards.” Grunwald said.

“I’ve lost count of the times I’ve said this has got to be the best album I’ve ever made.”

With time passing and no signs of slowing down, Grunwald said it was funny to reflect back on how ones career progresses.

“How can you stop that clock and in a lot of ways, why would you want to?”

A symbol of his career according to Grunwald is the size of his merchandise table, with his first gig having one CD for sale.

“My merch table is now full,” Grunwald said.

“I remember doing a support for Jeff Lang thinking I would be so proud to have a variety of albums like his,

“I would love to keep the creative fire burning to have that happen,

“Keep restless creatively.”

The opportunities music has provided Grunwald have not gone unnoticed, particularly in terms of having his family along for the ride.

“I didn’t have a stamp in my passport until I started touring,” Grunwald said.

His young daughter however has already seen a lot of the world with many stamps to her name, thanks to the success of Grunwald’s career.

Grunwald also said he couldn’t wait to see how the memories of these trips would work for his daughter, as from the four or five photos he had from childhood trips, the youth of today had thousands of photos at the touch of their fingertips.

Grunwald went on to say that the things that excited him the most about his musical career were the things that he didn’t see coming.

“Music is very funny on your ego,” Grunwald said.

When my song got on Limitless, I was shocked and that was amazing.”

Grunwald is also no stranger to the waves of the South West, being a keen surfer for the most of his life.

“It’s a strange Hawaii,” Grunwald said.

“The waves are massive.”

Grunwald once spent two weeks surfing in Prevelly, riding six to 10 foot waves where he felt the more he conquered the waves routinely, the greater sized waves he could achieve.

“You get conditioned,” Grunwald said.

Grunwald will play on January 11 at Clancy’s Fish Pub Dunsborough.

Tickets are available online through the venue.

The Orange Netball Association registrar has been awarded the position of World Cup ambassador for Orange for next year’s major event.

Wilson was told of his selection on Friday and he couldn’t be happier.

“I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring. I got an email on Friday saying they’d chosen me to be the Orange ambassador,” Wilson explained.

“I’m pretty chuffed. It’s great for Australia and NSW to have the World Cup on our doorstep. I just thought it was a good opportunity.”

He is still to be told of the finer details of his role, but said it is expected to officially start in February next year.

“My understanding is we have to promote the World Cup in our local area, not only to the netball community but to others as well. We need to keep people up to date with what’s happening,” he said.

Wilson said his passion for netball made him apply for the position.

“It’s an opportunity that doesn’t come around too often,” he said.

“I figure you only get out of it what you put in.”

Wilson has actually been assigned two World Cup positions.

He and wife Sally, a long-standing representative coach in Orange netball, have been offered positions as volunteers.

“So I think the ambassador role will be in the lead-up and then we’ll head off to Sydney to work down there,” Peter explained.

“We’ve been to Netball NSW meetings in Sydney and there have been discussions about the last World Cup which was in Australia in about 1991. Some of the people at those meetings were volunteers then and said it was wonderful.”

The 2015 Netball World Cup will run from August 7-16 in Sydney and feature 16 teams including hosts Australia.

Intersection named Esperance’s most dangerous

Friday, 16 August, 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.

Tony Abbott’s ABC cuts just another backflip

Friday, 16 August, 2019

This past week there have been two glaring examples of the Abbott government going back on its word.
Nanjing Night Net

The first was a clear broken election promise not to cut ABC and SBS funding, which, very damaging though they will be to both organisations, seem to be driven by an anti-public broadcasting ideology rather than economic sense, given that the dollar amounts are proportionally not significant in the big picture of the Abbott/Hockey phantom budget crisis.

Though some National Party MPs have spoken out against these cuts, Michael McCormack, at the time of writing, has been silent on the issue.

Your colleagues know the importance of the ABC to regional and rural Australia.

Don’t you?

However, disturbed though I am by the prospect of getting my news and public affairs commentary via Rupert Murdoch and his ilk, this week I also want to comment on something else equally disturbing, which is the news that Australia has taken its stand against boat arrivals to a new level, saying it will no longer resettle asylum seekers found to be refugees by the United Nation’s refugee agency in Indonesia who registered after July 1.

There are also rumours that the decision could be wider than this (SMH, 20 November), and may be applied to all asylum seekers found to be genuine refugees recommended by UNHCR in transit countries such as Syria, Iran, Malaysia and Iraq.

But human rights advocates were appalled at the decision, questioning the real motives behind it. Refugee Council of Australia chief executive Paul Power said the decision was “absolutely outrageous.”

“This will put Indonesia under even more pressure,” he said.

It is understood Labor will be seeking answers and clarification on the impacts of the decision, whileGreens spokeswoman Sarah Hanson-Young, ever a gutsy spokesperson for the rights of refugees, said the decision was “narrow-minded” and “hard-hearted”.

“This is the exact opposite of what the government should be doing,” she said.

“We should be working with our neighbours, accelerating refugee processing and increasing Australia’s intake from the region so that people are given a safe way to reach protection. That’s the only way we can save lives at sea while caring for refugees.”

Elaine Pearson from Human Rights Watch said: “If Australia really cared about saving lives at sea, then it would take more people from Indonesia, not less, because it would want to prevent people taking perilous boat journeys.”

What really troubles me is that for many years the Liberal/Nationals coalition has been arguing that asylum seekers who have got as far an Indonesia should “join the queue” and apply for UN refugee status.

Now Captain Abbott’s team is contradicting itself by cutting off even this tenuous lifeline.

And to compound their sin, surely they are as aware as the rest of us, that there are no UN refugee offices in places where most of the asylum seekers are fleeing from, such as Afghanistan and Iraq.

Pull the other one, Mr Morrison.

Nanjing Night Net

AN amendment of a previous council resolution to proceed with the compulsory acquisition of land from Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) will be put to council for approval.

On Wednesday, May 28 council resolved to proceed via the compulsory acquisition process.

Council’s panel solicitors, following review of the resolutions, have requested the addition of ‘purpose’ and a reference legislation to be incorporated into a fresh resolution.

Short stay update

THE draft Wingecarribee Holiday Rental Code of Conduct, which is endorsed by the Short Stay Letting Committee, will be put to council for adoption.

At the Ordinary Meeting of the Planning and Strategic Peak Committee on February 12, 2014 council considered a report on the public exhibition of a planning proposal to amend Wingecarribee Local Environment Plan 2010 (WLEP 2010) to insert a clause to permit short term rental of dwellings for tourist and visitor accommodation without council consent.

The amendment was made on March 14, 2014.

The objectives for the code of conduct include establishing acceptable standards of behaviour for guests and visitors, assisting owners and managers to meet the needs of all stakeholders and informing the community of the standards of conduct expected.

Should council adopt the proposal, the Wingecarribee Holiday Rental Code of Conduct will be actively promoted through media releases, information on council’s website and direct communication with agents and known property owners.

Bowling club

COUNCILLORS Duncan Gair, Larry Whipper and Jim Clark have given notice that it is their intention to move a motion rescinding the September 25, 2013 motion that council delay the demolition of the Mittagong Bowling Club.

Should that motion of recission be carried, Crs Gair, Whipper and Clark intend to move a motion that the demolition of the Mittagong Bowling Club and the remediation of the Alexandra Square site become an operational matter to be managed by the general manager.

Name change for shire

COUNCILLOR Garry Turland has given notice of his intention to move a motion for council to request changing the name of the Wingecarribee Shire.

The motion would see council request the NSW State Government and the Electoral Commission to allow council to survey the residents of the Wingecarribee Shire to change the name of the shire to the Southern Highlands at the state election in March 2015.

Health seminar attracts big crowd

Wednesday, 17 July, 2019

Dr Andrew Leicester, Rachel van der Meer and Dr Vince Roche were guest speakers at the Men’s Health Month in the Highlands session on Thursday night. Photo suppliedTHE message was clear – keep an active body, an active mind and a healthy diet and the future is for you to enjoy.
Nanjing Night Net

More than 100 men and women had the opportunity to listen to Dr Andrew Leicester, Dr Vince Roche and exercise physiologist Rachel van der Meer at the Moss Vale Golf Club on Thursday night.

This was the third in a series of talks for Men’s Health Month in the Highlands, promoted by the Wingecarribee Health Association for Men (WHAM) and supported by the local Medical Community.

Dr Roche began the night with advice on how to develop a relationship with your local GP.

One of his primary pieces of advice was to bring along your medical history, especially anything that may have afflicted your mother and father.

History and hereditary was a good indicator of your future.

Ms van der Meer reminded everyone that it was never too late to develop an exercise regime, particularly if you considered the possibility of surgery in the future.

Preparation was a great precursor to any procedure, but delaying it with exercise was even better.

Dr Leicester also encouraged everyone to engage in some form of exercise, although cycling was his first love.

The development of his profession was highlighted with the fact that a hip replacement could become a “day procedure” shortly.

The process and progress of hip and knee replacement has been staggering.

The enthusiastic response to this monthly series has been enormous and WHAM is anticipating tomorrow night’s session will be just as warmly received.

Dr Priyan Wikramanayake and Dr Grant Lewis will address the health of your bowel and Rachel van der Meer will cover a healthy diet at 6pm.

Marcia more than just a supervisor in Esperance

Wednesday, 17 July, 2019

Experience: Marcia Dickie shows Esperance Senior High School principal Cathy Bamblett how it is done.
Nanjing Night Net

MARCIA Dickie has sat through more than 1125 hours of school examinations – none of which have been her own.

The local woman is the Student Curriculum and Standards Authority’s chief supervisor, a position she has held since 1989.

In her position she was tasked with watching over Esperance students as they sat through through their final year 12 Western Aus tralia Education Certifi cate (WACE) exams.

Despite having held the job for so long, Ms Dickie doesn’t plan to stop any time soon.

Her role during the stressful exam period was to put examination papers on students’ desks, read out exam rules, collect them at the end and post them to Perth.

Her job was also to be a friend to students and it’s one she had loved doing.

Ms Dickie said she had to keep completed exams under lock and key once they were completed.

“I am the only person in Esperance with a key to the trunk which holds the exams before they are posted off to Perth for marking,” she said.

Ms Dickie said Espe rance’s students had been a delight to deal with, having not once caught a student attempting to cheat in the last 25 years.

“I think it’s because I read out the rules that their exams will be cancelled if they are caught cheating,” she said.

Ms Dickie said she enjoyed getting to know the students. “You don’t know anybody before the first exam but by the end you know them.

“I try to be more of a friend than anything because the kids are always so stressed so I try to give them a relaxing atmosphere.”

Ms Dickie was thanked by Esperance Senior High School principal Cathy Bamblett last Thursday for her 25 years of service as chief supervisor during year 12 exams.

“You do a sensational job and why we love you is because you know the children and are aware of them and it brings down the tension,” Ms Bamblett said.

“The kids going into their WACE exams, you know, it can be daunting and feeling anxious and just having people like Marcia providing that encouragement and trying to get them feeling as relaxed as possible is just great.”

Ms Dickie said although the cut off age for chief supervisor was 80, she still had many years left yet.

Cricket legend backs skin cancer campaign

Wednesday, 17 July, 2019

Lynette and Steve Waugh discussing their skin care needs with their local pharmacist.AUSTRALIAN cricket legend, Steve Waugh, AO is launching a sun awareness campaign this month urging people from NSW to check for unusual spots in the lead up to summer.
Nanjing Night Net

Sun Awareness Clinics – Skin Cancer SpotChecks will be run at Blooms The Chemist pharmacies throughout NSW and Queesland up until December 12, aimed at increasing public awareness of the dangers of skin cancer and reinforcing the importance of early detection.

Inadvertently, National Skin Cancer Action Week coincides with the Sun Awareness Clinics, running from November 16 to November 22.

Between 95-99 per cent of skin cancers result from sun exposure, and while melanoma is the least common type of skin cancer, it is the most dangerous.

The past decade has shown NSW-based men are 1.6 times more likely to be diagnosed with melanoma than NSW-based women. The most recent statistics reveal more than 3,700 melanoma diagnoses in NSW in the one year.

“If you’re not educated, you’re at risk of the dangers of skin cancer. Regular skin cancer spot-checks and awareness is vital,” Mr Waugh said.

He who lost his grandfather to melanoma and has personally sustained skin damage to his temples, back and shoulders and had some suspicious spots checked and some removed.

According to Waugh, an early detection tool is a good starting point to educating oneself and having a general overview of what to look out for regularly.

“It’s a great way to learn about what different spots look like and what the outcomes might be, so you’re better educated. But if you find something suspicious, you should seek prompt medical advice.”

Jay, 39 year old father of a four and six-year-old children, is a stage-three melanoma survivor and urges every Australian to have regular skin cancer spot-checks after one saved his life.

After a mole on Jay’s left ankle began to scab over and itch, he had it removed, along with 14 lymph nodes from his left groin and skin tissue from the lower part of his stomach.

“It’s easy to put things off, especially for men who tend to get on with things and delay health-checks – you must go and get checked,” said Jay.

“People respond very well to awareness clinics in a pharmacy setting and we’ve found they’re quite successful in educating the community,” Wayne McQuillan, pharmacist at Blooms The Chemist, Kiama said.

Blooms the Chemist Kiama will be holding a Sun awareness Clinic on Tuesday, December 2 from 10-3pm.

People can get involved with the event by booking a time on this day to receive aUV photo to take away – showing sun damage to facial areas and, consultation with a registered nurse.There is a $10 fee for this event, this small fee includes a free Skin Cancer SpotCheck Tool (RRP $19.95) and anEGO promotional size sunscreen.
