    MOE police are again holding a firearms amnesty this month to encourage residents to hand in firearms.

    Sergeant Cameron Blair said an amnesty meant people could hand in guns, ammunition or any imitation firearm in their possession without the fear of being prosecuted.

    “People may have a friend or know someone who has a firearm that is worried about how to dispose the gun. This way people can feel comfortable knowing the gun can be handed in with complete reassurance that no action will be taken,” Sgt Blair said.

    Sgt Blair said residents should attend the Moe Police Station to surrender firearms, where they could be disposed lawfully, rather than sitting in a cupboard with people not knowing what to do with them.

    “The community of Moe has always demonstrated a great commitment to the local people and I’m hoping the same level of support can be shown during the amnesty,” he said

    “Perhaps you know somebody who does have an unregistered or unwanted firearm, maybe somebody who is close to you. If you do, I encourage them to take advantage of this opportunity as no one wants to see guns being used for the wrong reasons.”

    For more information, phone Moe Police on 5128 1100 or the Divisional Firearms Officer on 5131 5072.

    Drug seizes in Moe

    MOE police have reported significant inroads in combatting drug trafficking and possession following the Dob in a Dealer campaign.

    On Friday, a search warrant in Newborough resulted in a 29 year-old male charged with trafficking methamphetamine, cannabis and other drug related charges.

    The male is remanded to appear at Latrobe Magistrates Court on 16 November.

    A 38 year-old female was also charged and fined in relation to cannabis possession and will be bailed in January

    Sergeant Darren Eldridge said the flow of information had been constant since residents were asked to anonymously report suspicious drug activity earlier this year as a part of the campaign

    He said Moe Police received anywhere between four to nine lots of information per week in relation to drug trafficking and possession.

    “The information the community provides us, allows us to obtain search warrants. It’s a proactive relationship with us and the community in an attempt to eradicate ice and cannabis from the local area,” Sgt Eldridge said.

    Anyone with drug-related information can phone Moe Police on 5128 1100 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    Assault at fast food chain

    THREE people were assaulted at Traralgon McDonalds in early hours of Tuesday morning.

    Police reported an intoxicated, verbal argument at the fast food chain resulted in a fight involving five offenders and three victims about 3am.

    Three offenders have been arrested, but charges have not yet been laid.

    Any witnesses are urged to phone Morwell Police on 5131 5000 or Crime Stoppers on

    1800 333 000.

    Car rollover

    A MOE mother and daughter have been taken to hospital for assessment and treatment after rolling their car.

    The Holden Rodeo was travelling east-bound on Old Sale Road, when the 42 year-old driver lost control and rolled about 8.20am Wednesday.

    She and her 16 year-old daughter were taken to Latrobe Regional Hospital for assessment and treatment.

    Latrobe Highway Patrol Acting Sergeant Grant Phillips said police were investigating the circumstances, including wet weather conditions.

    “I plea drivers to drive to conditions, road and weather conditions and adjust driving to the conditions,” Act Sgt Phillips said.

    If you witnessed the incident, phone Moe Police Station on 5128 1100.

    Motorcycle theft

    Churchill police are investigating a theft of a distinctive limited edition motorcycle near Manning Drive.

    The YZF250cc bike was started by the offenders, who rode through the park area between Latter Grove towards Williams Avenue, about 2am on Tuesday.

    Police report the recreation registered vehicle, plate number 90811H, may be advertised for sale on sites such as eBay, Gumtree, Trading Post or Buy Swap Sell.

  • George’s big screen gig

    Date: 2018.10.20 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    George Gorham worked on the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie set. Working on multi-million dollar movies and rubbing shoulders with Johnny Depp is all in a day’s work for George Gorham.

    The local carriage builder was recently commissioned to work on the set of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film on the Gold Coast.

    In January, George travelled up to the set to work alongside the man who taught him his trade – Australia’s leading coachbuilder and wheelwright Mark Burton.

    Together, they worked to convert two 18th century coaches to look more like 17th century for the film.

    The work kept coming when George was asked by renowned horse master Graham Ware to join a team horsemen and movie stuntmen as a wrangler.

    Coincidentally, one of the other stunt riders in the team was former Forbes local and Olympic showjumping hopeful Dave Cameron.

    “Working with these guys was a non-stop learning experience,” George said.

    “When we were shooting we would start as early as 2.30am harnessing up to 26 horses in the dark and finishing around 7 or 8pm.”

    George also featured as a town rider in the film which, in Queensland’s climate, proved challenging.

    “Working in summer in Queensland wearing costumes that included coats and wigs was very hot, but we weren’t the only ones,” he said.

    “Some days there were up to 600 extras in costume and just about everyone was wigged up.”

    In total George spent six months working on Pirates of the Caribbean, a great experience, but not his first in the film industry.

    In 2011 he worked on Canadian film ‘Frontier’ and featured as a wagon driver in the movie which was shot in Victoria.

    When he’s not working on movies, George returns to his Lynette Street workshop in Forbes to build steel buggy wheels.

    His craftsmanship is scattered right around Australia with his carriages ferrying people in Swanston Street, Melbourne, and his wheels being used as props in musicals at the Sydney Opera House.

    The latest Pirates of the Caribbean film is expected to be released in 2017 and if you watch it closely enough you might see our very own local George, ‘wigged up’, riding a horse.

    “While I can’t tell you anything about the movie for legal reasons, the opening theme has plenty of horses and action,” he said.

    “It should be a great watch.”

  • Free clinic here to support mums

    Date: 2018.10.20 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    Midwife Tracey Barnden and Forbes Medical Centre’s nurse manager Shelley Clark. Forbes Medical Centre is now running bulk-billed fortnightly midwife clinics for women, focussing on pregnancy, post-natal care and breastfeeding.
    南京夜网

    The clinics are every second Wednesday with Forbes Hospital midwife Tracey Barnden.

    The idea of the clinics is to improve the transition from the hospital to the medical centre for women post-delivery, as well as offering advice on pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    “We want to increase services in the area and make them more accessible for patients, providing more holistic care,” Forbes Medical Centre nurse manager Shelley Clark said.

    The clinics are open to anyone – from pregnant women to those who have recently given birth.

    Women don’t need to have a referral – they can just ring the medical centre to make an appointment.

    “It’s giving women another avenue of support and to try to increase the rate of breastfeeding,” Ms Barnden said.

    “Women having their first pregnancy may also have questions or concerns. Even if they just need their blood pressure checked, I can do it.”

    The next clinic will be next Wednesday, November 11. To make an appointment, call Forbes Medical Centre on 6851-1300.
