John Kerslake pre-selected to run for LNP despite strip club controversy

Sunday, 16 September, 2018

The LNP candidate who made headlines for a strip club controversy which played out on social media has again been pre-selected to run for the party at the upcoming election.

Police Sergeant John Kerslake has been pre-selected to run in the seat of Mirani in the 2015 poll, following current LNP MP Ted Malone’s decision to retire at the next election.

Mr Malone has held the seat since he 1994 by-election and has a safe margin of more than 10 per cent.

Sergeant Kerslake ran in Mackay in the 2012 election and almost managed to take the seat from Labor MP Tim Mulherin, who suffered a 16.3 per cent swing against him.

But his campaign was marred by what Sergeant Kerslake at the time labelled a “dirty tricks campaign” from his opposition.

Allegations Sergeant Kerslake favoured local strip-club bar manager Jasmine Robson during a police campaign to reduce crime in the town’s entertainment districts were re-floated, despite a Crime and Misconduct Commission investigation finding he had no case to answer.

The situation was further inflamed after Facebook messages between Sergeant Kerslake and Ms Robson, who was managing Grosvenor on George in Brisbane, known for its topless barmaids, were made public.

The Courier Mail reported Sergeant Kerslake replied to Ms Robson’s broad invitation on the social media platform to attend the venue that if he was “lucky” he could “get the chance to look the place over next in Brisbane as well”.

At the time, he told reporters he was just being polite and had no intention of visiting the venue.

Within minutes of Sergeant Kerslake’s announcement as the Mirani LNP candidate, the stories highlighting the 2012 controversy hit Twitter.

LNP state director State Director Brad Henderson said it was more dirty tricks.

“This is a rehash of the smear campaign which characterised Labor’s strategy ahead of the 2012 state election,” he said.

“John Kerslake is a candidate of high integrity and is passionate about representing the people of Mirani as part of the strong LNP team.”

In announcing the pre-selection LNP President Bruce McIver described him as a “passionate north Queenslander” who had a “strong understanding of the issues which are important to the people of Mirani”.

“He will be a strong member of the Newman LNP government which is getting Queensland back on track,” he said.

Sergeant Kerslake said he looked forward to the challenge.

“As a family man, I face the same challenges and concerns of many families in Mirani and will focus on creating more local jobs as a priority,” he said.

A date for the election is yet to be called, but it is expected to be held in either late February or early March.

The Eastern Freeway has reopened after hours of traffic mayhem in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs’ when two major arterial roads were blocked by crashes.

Crashes on the Eastern Freeway and the Maroondah Highway cancelled the escape route for each other during Melbourne’s morning peak.

In the first crash, a truck carrying wet clay collided with two cars on the Eastern Freeway at Box Hill. The freeway was blocked inbound between Springvale and Elgar roads for four hours while emergency services workers cleared the debris.

Three people, including the truck driver, were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Later at 10.30am, a cyclist suffered severe head injuries in an accident on the Maroondah Highway.

The male cyclist, in his 20s, was struck by the vehicle on Whitehorse Road, near the Laburnum Street train station, in Blackburn.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious condition.

“He suffered serious head injuries and a suspected fractured arm and fractured pelvis,” an Ambulance Victoria spokesman said.

It is believed the resulting traffic congestion along Middleborough Road and Whitehorse Road may have contributed to the second crash.

“A lot of things are happening adding to the traffic havoc in Blackburn,” a VicRoads spokesman said.

Traffic on Whitehorse Road is being diverted along Canterbury Road.

While the freeway was reopened, VicRoads director of road operations Dean Zabrieszach warned that drivers should still expect heavy delays.

“VicRoads is managing traffic around these sites and changing traffic light sequences in the area,” Mr Zabrieszach said.

“We ask drivers to check VicTraffic online for information and updates and to delay travel through the area if possible,” he said.

Local schools share in $2.5 million funding

Sunday, 16 September, 2018

TWO Gunnedah Shire schools have been included in more than $2.5 million additional funding.
Nanjing Night Net

Gunnedah South Public School is one of the Tamworth electorate schools to benefit from additional government funding.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said $2,595,933 in needs-based funding had been announced for Tamworth electorate government schools in 2015.

Among the schools are Gunnedah South Public School, with an additional $236,354, and Carroll Public School, with $37,186.

Carroll Public School principal Christine Patison welcomed the funding.

“This funding will allow us to further streamline our educational programs to cater for the diverse learning needs of a growing student population,” she said.

“There are many exciting things in the pipeline for Carroll Public School next year and news of the funding is another added bonus. We are indeed very grateful.”

Mr Anderson said the funding was a result of the NSW government being the first to sign up to the Gonski agreement, which will deliver $5 billion in additional funding to NSW students over

six years.

“This is what public schools in the Tamworth electorate have wanted, a significant increase in funding guaranteed into the future, with the greatest benefits flowing to schools and students with the greatest need,” Mr Anderson said this month.

“Schools in our region began benefitting from additional resources distributed under the new Resource Allocation Model (RAM) last year.

“Today’s announcement builds on those increases, and I am confident school communities and principals will be delighted at the prospect of planning their use of the additional funds.”

Other schools in the Tamworth electorate that have benefited from additional funding include Barraba Central School ($74,315), Hillvue Public School ($270,679), Manilla Central School ($280,449), Peel High School ($340,907), Werris Creek Public School ($49,583), Westdale Public School ($149,629), and Nundle Public School ($110,369).

Morris is searching for balance

Sunday, 16 September, 2018

GOOD GIG: Menangle based driver David Morris posted an impressive win with Louboutin at the Bathurst Paceway earlier this month. Tonight he has two chances to steer another victor. Photo: ANYA WHITELAW 110714louboutinMENANGLE driver David Morris has seen plenty of improvement in the track at the new Bathurst Paceway since it opened last month, but there is still one problem with the surface which has thrown him a tactical dilemma for tonight’s meeting.
Nanjing Night Net

A section of the track is uneven, which makes getting a good start from barriers seven and eight a difficult task.

One of his two chances tonight, the Jeff Brown trained Smart Major, has drawnbarrier eight. The five-year-old does have gate speed, but Morris is unsure if he should utilise that in the Fish and Sons Pace (1,730 metres).

“The track has improved a hell of a lot since it opened. The only bit I really don’t like is the area when you go from barrier seven or barrier eight. There is a change in camber … it’s a bit like you’ve dropped off a cliff,” Morris said.

“The drop off is quite long actually – even the lip of it when you are behind the mobile. If you are in, say, barrier seven, one wheel of the gig is on the edge of the cliff so it feels a bit unbalanced. It feels like you could tip. You can even see at the back of the mobile they’ve got an extra barrier to make sure a horse won’t go under it.

“I am a bit unsure what to do with Smart Major. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone punch forward from barrier seven or eight. I don’t quite know how to go having to run up the cliff.

“But don’t get me wrong, other than that I don’t mind the track, but it does takegetting used to. It will get better the more they use it.”

Based at Menangle with his father and wife Stephanie, Morris trains a small team which currently numbers seven horses.

He spends most of his time driving for other trainers and that is what will bring him to the Bathurst Paceway tonight.

“I am a freelance driver and I get a fair bit of driving from the Bathurst region. I’ve driven for Steve Conroy, Ashlee Siejka has put me on a few in the past, Dave Reynolds, Mark Butler, I’ve driven for Steve Turnbull a couple of times, basically wherever I am needed,” he said.

Morris is already among the majorwinners at the new Bathurst Paceway,

having steered Riverina pacer Louboutin to victory in the Star Trek Series final earlier this month.

Given he nudged out his cousin Robert Morris on favourite Karloo Ten Seventy, it was a moment he enjoyed.

“That was alright wasn’t it? Robbie was going for four wins for the day too, but it’s always been a good horse that Louboutin. I was still surprised at how quick she picked him up though,” he said.

Getting a win tonight may be a more tricky prospect for Morris, with Smart Major to be tested by his draw and his other chance, the Stephen Conroy, Hartley trained Our Southern Belle, also needing luck from barrier nine. She will contest the Group 1 Feeds Pace (1,730m).

“Our Southern Belle is very consistent, but the draw has got to go her way,” Morris said of the six-year-old Life Sign filly who has nine wins and 16 placings from 72 starts.

“She has got to get a decent draw. If you draw terrible, she struggles. But she always tries hard, she just hasn’t had a lot of luck.”

Morris plans to follow out the Wendy Turnbull trained Pinegrove, who has drawn barrier one, but he said he will need to talk to Brown before deciding what tactics to use with Smart Major.

If he gets it right, the Forbes trained son of Art Major is a realistic winning chance.

“It’s a nice horse, it’s still a stallion actually. I think Jeff bought him about two years ago from New Zealand.I think he paid a bit of money for him, but he went through his grades real fast racing around the bush,” Morris said.

“He then brought him up to Menangle and we took over him for a bit. He had five starts for us and the worst he ran was fourth.He’s a very nice horse.”

The first race of tonight’s meeting is set to go at 6.05pm.

Team spirit: Members of Team Coshi at last year’s DA Global CF Swim Macarthur where they received a trophy for the most money raised. Picture: Jonathan NgPARTICIPANTS of the DA Global CF Swim Macarthur know the bigger the splash they make in the pool the more money they are raising for cystic fibrosis research.
Nanjing Night Net

So the 20 members of Team Coshi will make their dip in the pool the biggest yet.

This will be the team’s fifth swimathon, and the second without their mate and cystic fibrosis sufferer Michael “Coshi” Cotton who died in 2013.

“Last year was our first year without him,” said Josh Porteous, a member of Team Coshi that was named in Michael’s honour.

“It’s good to do something for such a good cause that benefits people in need and it’s a cause close to our hearts because of Michael.”

The team raised $20,000 last year and will again host local fund-raisers in the lead-up to February’s swim to beat last year’s effort.

“Giving back to the community always makes you feel good and it’s one of those events that has an incredible feel about it; people love to get involved,” Mr Porteous said.

“We’ve seen first hand what CF can do so it’s good to raise money to help other local sufferers.”

The 2015 Swimathon is on Saturday, February 21 at the Wollondilly Leisure Centre. To register, visit the DA Global CF Swim Macarthur website (www.cfmacarthur南京夜网) and click on the “join the swim” link where you can join a team, create a new team, sign up as an individual or make a donation.

A local men’s society celebrates 100 years

Thursday, 16 August, 2018

CENTURY: The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes Royal Flinders Lodge will celebrate 100 year this weekend. Pictured here are current members Barry Press and Stuart Giles with a photo of the lodge’s original members. A local men’s society will this weekend celebrate its 100th birthday.
Nanjing Night Net

The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes Royal Flinders Lodge was first formed on December 10, 1914 and will celebrate its century this Saturday.

The society may have a complicated name, however, the activities of the group are far simpler.

The lodge is a not-for-profit benevolent society with members meeting once a fortnight to have a chat and raise some money at the same time.

There are different chapters of the society all around the world.

Current member Stuart Giles said the group about conviviality.

“It’s about good fellowship,” he said.

“You can come here with as much or as little money as you like, have a couple of quiet beers, enjoy yourself and stay out of trouble.”

The Flinders Lodge has donated money to many local charities over the years with the most recent being to the Port Augusta Special School.

Current member Barry Press said it was fantastic to reach the milestone.

“It’s great for the lodge to reach 100 ,” he said.

“Our numbers may have shrunk over the years but we are still here.

“In our time we’ve helped out all sorts of causes like cancer research, bushfire appeals and the special needs school.”

The group has members from all walks of life from labourers, to businessmen to members of essential services.

The current age range is from 20 to 82-years-old.

To join the society you must first be nominated by a current member and then pass selection criteria.

Once you are in, you work your way through a ranking system which consists of first, second, third and fourth degrees.

Over the years there has been a strong family tradition of membership, with many descendants in the lodge currently members.

The group will celebrate its century with a harmony day this Saturday starting from 1pm.

Mr Press encourages as many old members to attend as possible.

“There are plenty of local members who don’t come anymore because of various reasons, but we would definitely like to see them come along.”

Any members who wish to attend are asked to contact Stuart Giles on 0439080126.

Canberra payphones converted to Wi-Fi hotspots in Telstra trial

Thursday, 16 August, 2018

Despite averaging just five phone calls a day, there are no plans to tear public payphones out of the ground anytime soon.
Nanjing Night Net

Instead Telstra, which is required by government to keep payphones operational, is adding value to the services.

The telco has flicked the switch on two public payphones in Civic which are now Wi-Fi hotspots with a 50 metre range.

The free trial overlaps with the existing free ACT government Wi-Fi network, which is already active in the Canberra CBD.

The move is part of a five-year $100 million strategy to create more than 1000 hotspots across the country before Christmas.

Over the next few weeks, Telstra will activate nine hotspots across Canberra and Queanbeyan.

This trial will remain free until the official launch of a national network in early 2015.

Telstra CountryWide area general manager Larissa Redford said the Canberra trial was the start of an ambitious nationwide plan.

“We are turning on two hotspots in the Canberra CBD and people will be able to access them,” she said. “They are just the start of the locations.”

Other hotspots in Canberra will include Dickson, Phillip, Kingston, Griffith and two Queanbeyan locations.

The move to add an internet hotspot to payphones comes after decades of decline for the service as people took up mobile phone technology. There are 141 Telstra operated payphones in Canberra and 14 in Queanbeyan.

A Telstra spokesman said there was no demand to remove payphones from Canberra, which indicated strong community support to retain the facilities.

“Telstra continues to supply and maintain public payphones as part of its obligations to the government,” he said.

Meanwhile the $3.1 million ACT government network – provided by iiNet – will enable Canberrans to download 100 megabytes of data a day via 745 access points across Canberra.

The first points of the network were turned on at Garema Place last month.

Markets Live: Instant profit for investorsBrian Robins: Play it safe on day oneMedibank a $5.9b bonanza for government

Medibank Private has debuted 11 per cent higher than its initial public offering price.

The IPO priced shares at $2 for retail shareholders and $2.15 for institutional shareholders, but demand for the stock saw it open at $2.22.

ASX Listings business development manager Rory Cunningham said at present the highest buyer for Medibank is at $3.75, while the lowest is at $1.75.

Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said there were more than $5 billion in retail bids for the private health insurance IPO.

“We about to transfer ownership of Medibank Private to about 400,000 individual shareholders,” Mr Cormann said prior to ringing the bell for trade to go live.

“This process has been so successful because of the professionalism of everyone associated with the sale.”

The offer raised $5.679 billion for the government and is the second largest IPO on record in Australia. Telstra is the biggest at $US10 billion when it listed in November 1997.

CLSA analyst Jan van der Schalk said the Medibank Private listing was an expensive call on structural, government-led, change.

“Medibank’s CEO & management have been in place for 12 years. We are told this is a cost-out story: maybe, but we wonder why this mob should suddenly be good at running an efficient shop?” Mr van der Schalk said.

“In an effort to cut costs, what are the potential downstream impacts of their actions? If lowering expenses is so easy, why hasn’t it been done before? We see only issues with this strategy.”

Federal government clamps down on high-rise near airports

Thursday, 16 August, 2018

The federal government is keeping a close eye on high-rise and other developments near Australia’s major airports and will not allow any buildings to be constructed if they interfere with current or future flight paths, Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development secretary Mike Mrdak says.
Nanjing Night Net

Under the Airports Act, the government and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority can object to developments in protected airspace near the large federally regulated airports.

“If we don’t protect that airspace now, we will in the long-term rue our failure to do so,” Mr Mrdak told the Australian Airports Association national conference on the Gold Coast on Tuesday.

“I think it is one of the most important tasks government and industry must work together on. More and more, the potential for high-rise residential development is threatening to encroach on flight paths and protected airspace around our airports.”

But such regulations do not apply to smaller airports outside capital cities that are not federally regulated.

Mr Mrdak said he would encourage states to look at a statutory regime like the Airports Act that would allow airport operators to have a say in how much airspace would be required for future growth.

“It is important that planning by state and local governments take into account airports,” he said. “Developments near airports and under flight paths can constrain operations. I recognise this is a challenge for state and local planners trying to maximise land use in their jurisdictions. But as we know, if we aren’t protecting our long-term assets we aren’t going to be meeting our growth challenge.”

Mr Mrdak said he was optimistic about the potential for growth in the Australian aviation industry, even though Australians took an average of four flights a year, which is 30 per cent higher than Europeans and North Americans.

“This love of aviation services will continue,” he said. “We have to plan and invest for this growth.”

Mr Mrdak said consultations with Sydney Airport about its first right of refusal over the development of a new airport in Sydney’s west at Badgerys Creek were proceeding “very well” and would continue in the new year.

He said the plan was for an initial one-runway development with a terminal capable of handling up to 3 million passengers a year – on a par with Canberra Airport – which would not have a curfew and would open in the mid 2020s.

“[The airport] will provide an avenue for economic growth for western Sydney, which is already the third-largest economy in Australia,” he said.
