    Jindabyne defeated Dalgety by 5 wickets

    THE Jindabyne Cricket Club is sitting pretty atop of the Monaro District Cricket Association A-Grade competition following their third straight win to the season.

    With Snowy River Shire bragging rights on the line, Jindabyne headed to Dalgety to take on last season’s runners-up.

    Under a heavy sky at the Dalgety Showground, Dalgety made a bright start with Les Taylor (23) playing some good shots while Iain Elliott played his best knock of the season to top score with 78 not out.

    Some quick runs from Aron Rogers (27) and Jake Hedger (23) saw the Dalgety side post a challenging 5/193 with wickets shared between the Jindabyne bowlers.

    Simon Partell continued his fine start to the season and was arguably the pick of the bowlers with his 1.29 off nine overs.

    The total 193 wasn’t quite enough as new Jindabyne cricketer Callan Andrews opened up with a patient (28) before Chad Stevens (48) and Tyler Greening (76*) put on 107 for the fourth wicket to see Jindabyne sneak home with three overs to spare.

  • Harvest hopes hinge on forecast rain

    The region is bound for a better-than-average harvest, if conditions stay dry enough to harvest the crops.In a year of extremes for the grains industry, much of New South Wales is expected to achieve a better harvest than the previous two seasons according to a new report into Australian grain production.

    Local farmers were anxiously watching the skies yesterday afternoon, with a lot of canola windrowed on the ground, barley crops ready for harvest and wheat less than two weeks away.

    Walkers AGnVET agronomist Matt McCrae said there was potential for a good crop, but it was impossible to forecast with the current weather situation.

    “At the moment, with the cloud in the sky, everything’s in limbo,” he said yesterday.

    “It could all have changed within 24 hours.”

    AgriWest agronomist Guy Webb agreed.

    “We had an excellent sowing window and a good solid winter,” he said.

    “We got good growth, but Spring was a pinch with that short burst of hot weather that took a bit of yield off.

    “In general we could expect an average and above average yield, but we are right on the precipice with this chance of rain.”

    The 2015 National Crop Update, prepared by Rural Bank’s market insights resource, Ag Answers, reveals that overall national grain production is expected to be slightly higher than last year due to an increase in the production of legume crops, with wheat production forecast to grow by three percent and barley by 12 percent, while canola production is predicted to fall by 14 percent.

    The report presents forecasts for the 2015 New South Wales cropping season based on climatic conditions and reviews recent trends in grain prices, as well as the financial and export performance for wheat, barley, canola and other crops.

    TweetFacebookThe university of Western Australia has won The Australian Financial Review’s inaugural Higher Education Equity and Opportunity Award for an innovative program that works with 52 partner schools across Western Australia.

    Aspire UWA is an outreach program that encourages students from low socio-economic, Indigenous and regional backgrounds to access the lifelong benefits of higher education.

    Manager Louise Pollard said the program has engaged more than 40,000 students, teachers and families in its activities since its inception in 2009.

    The UWA program has three essential components: a core learning framework for Year 7-12 students delivered by Student Services; an outreach program delivered by the School of Indigenous Studies; and a pathway program for disadvantaged students delivered by the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

    Participants are engaged in campus, school and community-based activities to enhance their academic achievements and to provide a successful transition to university life.

    “It is an honour to receive this prestigious award, which recognises the hard work and dedication of the whole Aspire team,” Ms Pollard said.

    “It is a celebration of everyone’s contribution to the program’s success. Together with our student ambassadors, supporters across the university and our partner schools, we are inspiring students to aim high and realise their university dreams,” she said.

    Aspire UWA is also grateful for the generous support received from the Australian Government, the Alcoa Foundation, Mineral Resources and individual donors.

    UWA Vice-Chancellor Paul Johnson described the win as a tremendous achievement.

    “This is very well deserved recognition for the whole team on the transformative work that Aspire UWA does right across the state,” he said.

    The AFR Awards were announced at a gala dinner in Sydney.

    Ned’s step in right direction The floating river lantern, Clara’s Dream, did Workability art crew ARTZILLA proud at Riverlights on Friday, October 30.

    A significant step has been taken that will boost our pride in our local heritage.

    I refer to the Eurobodalla’s new Heritage Advisory Committee, whichwisely recommended that two of Bateman’s Bay’s oldest historic buildings, formerly known as Ned Kelly’s Bargain Store, located at 5-7 Clyde Street, be “listed” by the council,to recognise their historical importance now and into the future.

    Eurobodalla communities should be encouraged by that The Clyde River and Bateman’s Bay Historical Society will now be directly involved and work with Steve Halicki, the council’s Strategy and Heritage Planner and members of the heritage committee to ensure that these buildings will not be demolished.

    A special thank you to to Jenny Butt for focusing the spotlight on these important buildings that could soon become a major tourist attraction if refurbished as an historic display centre.

    Jenny and significantly wise others have saved the historical Francis Guy residence and store built in the 1860s for future generations. Thank you.

    Peter CogganMalua BayA dream come trueOn Friday night, CLARA’S DREAM floated by an estimated 8,000 people on the banks of the Moruya River, along with other lanterns.

    I have had the pleasure of working with the makers, ARTZILLA, Workability’sart crew, for the past three months every Wednesday and on many weekends.

    I have worked in the arts all my life and this project has been one of the greatest highlights for a couple of very special reasons.

    For one, the community spirit, that joy of working together with so many people who were justfaces on the street before. Now we know each other so much better.

    I wish the rest of the world could be like this.

    A big thank you to Bruce Reid, from Bay Removals, who gave over his huge shed as a workshop. He may not have known what he was in for, but his generosity made many people’s dreams come alive.

    To Danielle and Doug Williams, who put this together and stayed calm and dedicated to the very end, we say thank you so much. I know all those schools who worked with Robbie and Darryl Cruse on the Rainbow Serpent are also saying their big thanks.

    These people are all volunteers. This is grass-roots, creative arts at its very best, with people from all walks of life getting together to create something beautiful to share with the wider community.

    This is why I choose to live on the South Coast. Forget the hiccups – remember the joy on the faces of the creators and remember that amazing glow of creativity that flowed down the river.

    It was stunning.

    Steve FoxBrouleeAmalgamation a non-issueTo amalgamate or not is the flavour of the month in local political circles, but really is a non-issue.

    No quantified information has been supplied supporting the notion of amalgamation by eitherthe State Government or its local proponents.

    If, for residents, there are any savings or othertangible benefits worth more than their local identities, let’s see them published.

    The Government is offering to pay amalgamating councils some of the costs ofamalgamation, to give additional grants for new infrastructure (not their ongoing costs ofmaintenance and depreciation), to make borrowing more from Tcorp easier and to havesimplified Special Rate Variation applications.

    These offers are being made to councils whoare mostly deemed to be unfit for the future. How could they responsibly afford to enter intosuch commitments?

    “Don’t you worry about that!” said Joh!

    The NSW Government, from its Fit for the Future process, saidEurobodalla, BegaValley and Shoalhaven shires were individually fit for the future, that there was no benefit seenfor these councils to amalgamate, and that they should be left to stand alone. That shouldbe end of story!

    Palerang and Queanbeyan to our west have both been deemed to be “unfit” by the NSWGovernment and the tribunal recommended that these two councils should amalgamatewith each other.

    Again, that should be the end of the story for us.

    Some groups and individuals, perhaps with hidden agendas, have raised various prospectsof Eurobodalla amalgamating with Palerang and/or Queanbeyan without any evidence toshow that any of the three councils would be better off.

    While we might well sympathise withtheir residents facing unwanted amalgamation, their unfit predicament is not and need notbecome our concern.

    Jeff de JagerCoilaPlease take careI would like to highlight to your readers that 993 people have drowned in a river, creek or stream in the past 13 years.

    This makes rivers the leading location for drowning in Australia.Most alarming is that almost three quarters of people who drowned in rivers, were close to their home and a majority were male.

    So why are so many drowning in our local rivers?The still surface of a rivergives a false sense of security. You can’t see ice cold water, snags like tree branches or strong currents.
