    With members from the Swan Hill Kart Club making the trip across, the racing was tight and fast with not one but four lap records broken.

    In the Cadet 9 class it was new club champion Brock Hand taking the win from new lap record holder Nathan Emmins in second and Darcy Stonehouse in third.

    In Cadet 12 Joel Johnson lead from start to finish in every race for the win with a new lap record, from Noah Crouch in second and Jordi Belton third.

    The pair made the podium after three of the top four crashed out in the first corner of the final.

    The Junior National Light class was hotly contested with four of the drivers having two separate battles of their own.

  • Thanks given to local paramedics

    Date: 2020.04.25 | Category: 老域名 | Response: 0

    RESIDENTS in the Upper Hunter are being urged to thank paramedics for their service this month.
    老域名购买

    First held in 2008, Thank a Paramedic Day – on Thursday, November 5 – is a publicly-celebrated awareness day to recognise the work of NSW Ambulance paramedics.

    Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen saidparamedics were role models within thecommunity, who we look upon with the highest admiration.

    “They are there for us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year,” he said.

    “Days like today recognise the importance of frontline emergency care and the trauma faced so regularly by our first responders.

    “When our community needs you, you are there, and for that, we can only say thank you.”

    NSW Ambulance is an integral part of the state’s health care system, providingemergency pre-hospital care and transport, medical retrieval services, and also asignificant proportion of non-emergency patient transport services to the community.

    THANK YOU: Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen is urging residents to show their gratitude on Thank a Paramedic Day on Thursday.

    Last year, NSW paramedics undertook over 1.1 million emergency and non-emergency responses.

    This is equivalent to an ambulanceresponding to someone across NSW every 28 seconds.

    “With nine ambulance stations across the electorate, there are no doubt countless local residents who have been aided by our Upper Hunter paramedics,” Mr Johnsen said.

    “I have no doubt that our selfless, localparamedics do not seek any adulation.

    “But, I am sure they would be delighted to know the public support them, and are grateful for the community’s support.”

    Members of the public who wish to thank staff from NSW Ambulance are welcome to via the Upper Hunter electorate office, oralternatively by writing directly to NSW Ambulance State Headquarters.

    Letters are provided directly to staff, with a copy placed on their personal file.

  • Ryan’s return ready to reap rich rewards

    Ryan Sampson has been lured back to Tamworth from Toowoomba to fulfil a career goal.

    His long-term goal was to work in radio, so when 88.9FM station manager George Frame invited him to join “the family” as a sales and promotions executive, Ryan leaped at the chance.

    “Obviously having music as my passion, as well as a sales background made the decision a very easy one for me,” Ryan said.

    Just two months ago, he was selling Mercedes-Benz cars in Toowoomba and now he has the best of both worlds – promoting the station and presenting his own show from 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday. The fact he still has quite a few family members living in and around Tamworth made the deal even sweeter. Selling the revamped radio station hasn’t been a hard ask either, Ryan said, as they’ve had people knocking on the door wanting to become station sponsors.

    “Because I’m from Tamworth, I have a vast network of people within the region, which has definitely helped me in my new career,” he said.

    “Apart from working here at the station, being surrounded by all the music events that happen in town during the week is just fantastic.

    “The monthly jam at Oxley Bowling Club, Lawrie Minson’s Songwriters @ The Pickin’ Pen and the all-in jam at The Albert are just some of the live music events that happen year round in Tamworth.

    “People say there’s no live entertainment in Tamworth, yet there’s so much going on. You’ve just got to get out amongst it.”

    Although he hasn’t been performing around Tamworth since his return, Ryan will definitely have a strong presence during the festival, returning to the North Tamworth Bowling Club with musical compadre Pixie Jenkins for their highly successful Campfire concerts.

    “This year we’ll have the very talented Manfred Vijars joining us at those shows, which will be great,” Ryan said.

    “Manfred can really spin a yarn or two and will add another dimension to what Pixie and I bring to the show.”

    After a disappointing Gold Coast 600, Cameron Waters, will look to turn things around in this weekend.

    The Mildura driver, who now has two V8 Supercars qualifying sessions under his belt, is keen to gain further V8 Supercars Championship experience at the Pukekohe track after a tough run on the Gold Coast in his last start.

    “I’m looking forward to getting to Pukekohe,” he said.

    “I have a round under my belt now from Surfers and learnt heaps there.

    “I’ve been to Pukekohe a fair bit, I’ve done SuperTourers there three times and I have even won a race there so I think it’ll suit our cars a lot more.

    “It’s a track where I’ve gone well in the past so I’m pretty excited to get there.”

  • Black Caps focus on Aussies’ pace attack

    Date: 2020.04.25 | Category: 老域名 | Response: 0

    New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum inspects the pitch during a net session at the Gabba on Thursday. Picture: Getty ImagesFOR so long an X-factor of Australian cricket, Mitchell Starc will be out to create a fear factor when the first Test against New Zealand starts on Thursday in Brisbane.
    老域名购买

    It has been two years since Mitchell Johnson’s frightening display at the Gabba against England, when he terrorised batsmen and elicited false strokes aplenty.

    Starc is bowling at similar speeds, but his greatest strength is an unplayable yorker that dips late rather than an unpleasant bouncer.

    Yet Brendon McCullum knows there is no point talking down Starc’s outstanding recent form and capacity to create collapses.

    “He’s probably one of the most feared bowlers around,” McCullum said. “We like to be able to test ourselves against the best players in the world.”

    Negotiating Australia’s pace attack of Starc, Johnson and Josh Hazlewood will be crucial to the Black Caps’ hopes of posting their second Test series win in Australia.

    The trio are the clear strength of a team in transition as Steve Smith captains Australia for the first time in a full-time capacity.

    Smith, having watched NSW teammate Starc dominate domestic cricket last month, hoped there would be some fear in the minds of New Zealand’s batsmen.

    “If you have got that sort of mental edge on them, you’re going to win a lot of battles,” Smith said.

    Starc made his Test debut four years ago against McCullum in Brisbane.

    The left-armer, dropped from the Test side 11 times since, has improved greatly.

    “He’s a completely different bowler,” McCullum said, having been skittled at the MCG by an outstanding delivery that set the tone for the World Cup final.

    “You’re not always going to be successful, and sometimes you can be made to look silly as well, a la the World Cup final.”

    Smith was banking on New Zealand trying to go after Starc and Johnson, McCullum’s men having played that way in a success-laden stretch dating back to the start of 2014.

    “A lot of them are going to come out and play their shots, which will play into our hands nicely,” Smith quipped.

    The tourists of course boast Trent Boult and Tim Southee, swing specialists who wouldn’t mind being asked to bowl first on a typical Gabba pitch.

    “The more they bowl, the easier it will get for us,” Smith said. “But they’re good bowlers and we’re going to have to respect them up front.”

    Richard Hadlee, speaking 30 years after guiding NZ to their only Test series win in Australia, ranked it as the nation’s best attack.

    “Australia do have a slight advantage, particularly in their bowling,” Hadlee said.

    Hadlee suggested McCullum would put recalled batsmen Usman Khawaja and Joe Burns under immense pressure in Brisbane.

    Smith was confident the new-look top order would thrive.

    “They have been batting beautifully, they have played some very good cricket out here in the past and know the conditions well,” he said.

    St James’ assistant principal and Year 6 teacher Ashley Borg said the feedback from the event has been good.

    “In general people took to it quite well,” he said.

    “It’s a bit of aninitiative the schoolstarted last year.

    “I thought it wouldbe a good idea to branch out to a regional level this year.

    “We’re hoping to do it again next year; we’ve enjoyed doing it.”

    Mr Borg said it was great to see the children showcase their skillsin maths, and also topromote the subject.

    Two weeks’ notice: Kwinana Christian School may close over funding cuts

    The Kwinana Christian School parent body is trying to raise $150,000 to keep the school open until the end of the year after receiving shock news the school could close within two weeks.

    Trys Reddick, a father of student at the school, posted on Facebook after creating an online fundraising page following a meeting on Tuesday night with staff and the school board.

    “Kwinana Christian School is an amazing school. Not just because my daughter goes there, not just because all the staff know every child at that school, not just because some teachers SMS parents every night to update them how their child is going – but because it’s a community,” he commented as he shared the campaign page.

    “It’s a community of people who are passionate about being the best they can be and encouraging and inspiring the kids. These are the future generations that are at stake here; please donate and share, share, share.”

    A letter sent to parents of children at Kwinana Christian School on Friday said the school could be forced to close within a fortnight after plummeting enrolments led to a corresponding drop in federal government funding.

    Despite an assurance that the board had sought emergency funding grants to allow the school to remain open until the end of the year, horrified parents met with members of the school board on Tuesday night and pledged their support.

    “160 grand raised in two weeks? We got this!!!,” one parent posted on its Facebook page.

    Kwinana Christian school is a small, independent primary school that has been operating for 14 years.

    WAtoday understands about 90 children are enrolled.

    Board chairman Louise Ward said this year enrolments had reduced significantly, mainly because of economic pressures on families.

    “With government funding based on student numbers, this change in the school’s circumstances has led to a reduction in the amount of funding received,” she said.

    “Last month, it became apparent to the board of the school’s association that we would have insufficient funds to complete the school year.

    “Immediate action was taken in an attempt to secure additional funds, including making applications to state and federal governments for emergency Special Circumstances grants to enable us to finish the school year. The outcomes of those applications are yet to be decided.

    “We are encouraged by the passionate support of our school community, who are making their own efforts to raise extra funds.

    “Our pressing concern is of course for the welfare of our children and their families, and that they would be able to complete the rest of their year at school without disruption, including being able to celebrate their achievements at an end of year function.” Follow WAtoday on Twitter

  • Mothers leave Murwillumbah District Hospital four to six hours after giving birth

    Date: 2020.04.25 | Category: 老域名 | Response: 0

    Four to six hours after they deliver their babies at the Murwillumbah District Hospital, they can expect to be discharged.

    It is among the shortest turnaround targets in Australia.

    It was one of the conditions of the hospital’s birthing service continuing to operate when the NSW government gave it a stay of execution in October.

    The service was set to be axed as obstetrics was to be concentrated a 30-minute drive away in Tweed Heads.

    However, community protests convinced the government to keep it open without its postnatal ward.

    Women will be encouraged to take their babies home as soon as they are ready. Overnight stays will be reserved for those with medical complications or who have delivered during the night.

    A Northern NSW Local Health District spokeswoman said the four to six-hour standard was common among hospitals with low-risk caseloads around Australia, including Ryde and Belmont hospitals.

    “In consideration of these women being at low risk and remaining at low risk during the labour, birth and immediate postnatal period, this is an accepted length of stay,” the spokeswoman said.

    “The mother is then provided with home visits by her own caseload midwife, who supports her through the antenatal, birth and postnatal period for up to six weeks.”

    Labor health spokesman Walt Secord said mothers around NSW were being “ushered” out of hospital to achieve a higher bed turnover.

    “Young mums – especially first-time ones – need postnatal support and rushing them out of hospital is unacceptable,” Mr Secord said.

    “The common view is that young mums and babies stay for around 48 hours.

    “Nurses have told me about local health district bureaucrats putting pressure on them to discharge new mums as early as possible. In some cases, it can be as little as two hours, if the mum and the baby are healthy.”

    There is an international trend towards discharging women earlier after childbirth. NSW hospitals are encouraged to discharge women between four and 48 hours after they deliver.

    Among the alternative lifestylers who populate the district, the policy is less controversial than the move to close the service. The current model is considered a step between a home birth and a hospital birth.

    Friends of Tweed Valley Birthing Service convener Rachel Bryant, who campaigned for the service to remain open, said most women who wanted to use the service were not first-time mothers and did not want or need to remain in hospital.

    “There’s no alarm clock put on it the minute you have the baby to say you have to leave,” Ms Bryant said.

    NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner said a hospital discharge between four and six hours after a low-risk birth was common practice in NSW.

    “In more complex cases, longer stays may be appropriate. In these cases, the time of discharge is a matter of discussion between the mother and her doctor,” she said.

    However, a midwife, who is prevented by her employment contract from speaking publicly, said postnatal services were “incredibly important”.

    “It’s great for women who don’t want to be there but there’s still that percentage of women who either can’t go home or don’t feel comfortable going home.

    “They’re first-time mothers, they don’t have experience of breastfeeding, they might not have family at home.”

  • Japan World Cup ace Ayumu Goromaru heads to Queensland Reds for Super Rugby campaign

Photo: Charlie CrowhurstThe Queensland Reds have added one of the more intriguing names to their Super Rugby roster, with Japan’s World Cup standout Ayumu Goromaru heading the Ballymore next season.
    老域名购买

    The 29-year-old scored 58 points in four matches during the tournament, including a late try in the Brave Blossom’s stunning first-round upset of eventual semi-finalists South Africa.

    Goromaru played fullback for Japan and will give the Reds a top-class goal kicker as well as a dangerous running player. “I have followed the Queensland Reds for many years and am looking forward to joining the squad and meeting my new teammates,” Goromaru said.

    “Following my experiences at the Rugby World Cup, I’m looking forward to the chance of proving myself at Super Rugby level.”

    The signing means Karmichael Hunt, who was given plenty of experience at fullback during the NRC, will likely switch to the centres alongside Samu Kerevi, which would give the Reds a decent backline on paper assuming they can adequately replace number 10 Quade Cooper.

    Meanwhile, Cooper has been given a hope of appearing at the Rio Olympic Games after his new club, Toulon, appeared to provide some flexibility in their contract that would release him for a number of Sevens tournaments and the Games itself.

    Cooper is no automatic selection but his game would be a handful in Sevens and give the Australian side a strong profile heading into Rio, assuming they take the final qualifying steps.

    His Toulon deal has been tweaked to allow him to be freed for national games, although he remains marooned on 58 Tests which would currently preclude him from Wallaby duty if he remains in Europe.

    “The immediate goal is to get out and play well for Toulon. But I am just happy and grateful for the opportunity to go to an Olympic Games which would not have been possible prior to this. Every kid dreams of going to the Olympics,” Cooper said.
