Baird to Political Oblivion

BY OUR CHIEF CIVIC ROUNDSMAN

Local State MPs are facing certain defeat at the next

NSW election if they don’t show some courage and

stand up for their constituents against the arrogance

of Dictator Mike Baird in his insane drive to exterminate

local democracy with the genocide of local

democratically elected community Councils.

Baird will act with his stoolpigeon minister for misnamed ‘Local’

Government in the shadow of Christmas with Parliament closed

for four months.

Electors are asking: Where are our gutless MPs? Voters are

demanding they stand up and be counted.

Our jelly bellied local MPs don’t believe the record voter backlash

against the Liberal candidate at the recent North Sydney Federal

by-election was largely directed at the Baird State

Government’s compulsory Council amalgamation scheme.

If the Big Banker Baird’s plans are forced through and the

adverse effects are felt before the next State election all hell

will let loose.

Seems the NSW Libs haven’t learnt the lessons of the

unbeatable Campbell Newman Lib government annihilation

result north of the border. Or south in Victoria.

Unless sanity prevails and Dictator Baird makes a hasty

retreat the Liberals face another long term in NSW State

Opposition.

2 THE WEEKLY TIMES Wednesday 19 December, 2018

WIN! with TWT!

Catch A Falling Star: A Story About

Growing Up with Jeanne Little

TWO TWT readers have won copies of a new book Catch A Falling

Star: A Story About Growing Up With Jeanne Little written by her

daughter - Boronia Park author Katie M Little.

Winners are: Nathan Mc-

Shane, Drummoyne and

Rachel Harrison of Concord

West.

When Jeanne Little burst

into the living rooms of millions

of households across

Australia in 1974 with her

first appearance on The

Mike Walsh Show – audiences

didn’t know what hit

them.

With incredible outfits,

false eyelashes and a raucous

voice that screamed

‘Hello Daaaaaaahling!’,

Jeanne was an instant sensation

and won the Gold

Logie for Most Popular TV

Personality two years later.

Pregnant with her only

child Katie M Little at the

time of her first TV appearance,

Catch A Falling Star

takes you into the world of

the little girl that grew up

backstage amidst sequins

and feathers; of a unique

upbringing by an unconventional

mother and a

look at fame through innocent

eyes.

Go back to 1980s Australia,

to the days of Betamax,

Bob Hawke and shoulder

pads, before smart phones

and breathalysers, when

Big Macs came in styrofoam

boxes and the only

environmental crisis was a

hole in the ozone layer.

Flash forward to 2010

and Jeanne’s name hits the

headlines again – this time

with the shocking revelation

that she has been diagnosed

with Alzheimer’s

- a disease affecting an estimated

almost 50 million

people worldwide.

With her mother in fast

decline and her family in

crisis, it is up to Katie to

take the reins.

Catch A Falling Star will

take you on a journey that

is both laugh-out-loud funny,

heartbreakingly honest,

and a rare glimpse into

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Please enjoy a well-earned break over the festive season, stay safe, relax,

and I look forward to catching up with you again in 2019.

National budget returning to surplus!

It is my pleasure to confirm the budget for this current financial year will be

in surplus!

The last time Australia enjoyed a budget surplus was when the departing

Year 12 class of today were just starting kindy, and John Howard was the

Prime Minister.

Only by supporting people’s enterprise can our economy grow stronger,

which then guarantees the essential services we rely on. It means more

money for schools, hospitals and infrastructure. It also means tax cuts for

hard working Australians like you.

Thanks to a wonderful combination of your efforts, linked in with the

Coalition Government’s positive economic policy development and

spending discipline, Australia will now be in a position to start paying down

the huge national debt it inherited (again) under Labor five years ago.

We forecast the improved fiscal position will drive a dramatic reduction in

net national debt from its present level of 18.5 per cent of Gross Domestic

Product in 2017-18 to just 1.5 per cent over the next 10 years. The interest

savings alone will be huge.

This will put Australia in good stead to be able to tackle any potential

future international crisis from a position of strength, not indebted

weakness.

The Labor alternative is concerning. They promise a huge $200 billion

tax hike (negative gearing cuts, Capital Gains Tax hike, self-funded retiree

tax on dividends, return of the carbon tax etc) that will only be a drag on

the economy and confidence. And the last time Labor delivered a budget

surplus was in 1989, under Paul Keating 30 years ago.

Hunters Hill Day celebrates Community

wins over government bureaucracy

Dear Sir,

Regarding the article in

last week’s TWT, to formally

adopt July 31 each year as

“Hunters Hill Day”.

On this day, Hunters Hill

made a landmark victory over

those who wished our historical

suburb to amalgamate with

others.

This victory, however, should

not cause a division as this

special day should be set

aside to celebrate Hunters Hill

Day, in tribute to all the other

victories we have won over the

years.

In 1967, “The Battlers for

Kelly’s Bush” banded together

to save 20 acres of bush land

by the harbour and fought the

government to the end. It is

now a permanent public reserve

under council control.

In the same year, the oil

company, “Amoco” purchased

the heritage “Garibaldi Inn”

from government, to demolish

it and build a service station….

Again, the people of Hunters

Hill rose up, defending this

well-loved landmark.

The New South Wales government

eventually placed

a conservation order on it in

1979.

In 1981 the Register of the

National Estate classified

Hunters Hill as a Conservation

Area for its importance as an

exceptional low-density garden

suburb which included the

many historic buildings and

structures.

In 1988 a particularly fierce

campaign waged by residents

and Council to prevent highrise

development at Pulpit

Point on the Parramatta River

a compromise was reached,

with no high-rise.

A great achievement of the

twentieth century for Hunters

Hill was the victory of a local

group and Council, In 1997 the

Commonwealth decided to

sell the Horse and Goat paddocks

at Clarkes Point to developers.

In 2001 victory again was

achieved by our residents with

Council and the land turned

over to a Trust for public recreation.

The battles with government

bureaucracy continued

into the 90’s when the Federal

Government in 1994 shattered

The Climate Change Hoax

Letters to the Editor

Hunters Hill with a third runway

pointing at us.

Our residents came to the

fight against the Government,

including a block-aid of the

airport. Through the actions

of residents and Council, the

government was forced to legislate

the introduction of noise

sharing modes.

During 2002, Hunters Hill

high school was about to be

closed and sold by the New

South Wales Government.

Residents banded together

with Council, and in 2002, the

decision was withdrawn just

weeks before the planned closure

date.

Local residents worked with

Council again when Hunters

Hill was under threat of amalgamation

in 2003, the residents

and the council united

together in a vigorous protest

against the amalgamation,

they won the fight in an unqualified

victory with the government

eventually backing off

and walked away.

In 2007 local residents again,

working with the council, were

successful in preserving the

heritage “Priory”. Through a

campaign waged by Hunters

Hill resident groups and

our Council, it was eventually

made part of the adjoining

Crown reserve.

Once again the issue of amalgamations

raised its ugly head

from 2013. Again the community,

The Weekly Times and

Council came together to fight

the battle.

An appeal was lodged by

council lawyers in the court of

appeals during July 2017, and

Council won on a technicality

and the government had to

withdraw and pay all costs.

“Hunters Hill Day” is now

July 31 each year in honour of

all the environmental and community

issues bravely fought

and won over the years.

The community, TWT and

Council of Hunters Hill are to

be rewarded and we congratulate

council on their decision

to formally adopt the July 31

as “Hunters Hill Day” as it

marks our last victory of many

over government bureaucracy.

PETER ASTRIDGE

Former Councillor on Hunters

Hill Council

Dear Sir,

In one of the Letters to the Editor, you were challenged

to provide evidence to support your assertion that Climate

Change is a hoax.

The following link is to a YouTube video that gives the science

that proves the Climate Change theory is a hoax.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYhCQv5tNsQ (Approx

73 minutes)

The title for the video is “The Great Global Warming Swindle”.

The following are notes published about the video.

The Great Global Warming Swindle caused controversy in the

UK when it premiered March 8, 2007 on British Channel 4. A

documentary, by British television producer Martin Durkin, which

argues against the virtually unchallenged consensus that global

warming is man-made.

A statement from the makers of this film asserts that the scientific

theory of anthropogenic global warming could very well be

“the biggest scam of modern times.”

According to Martin Durkin the chief cause of climate change is

not human activity but changes in radiation from the sun. Some

have called The Great Global Warming Swindle the definitive retort

to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. Using a comprehensive range

of evidence it’s claimed that warming over the past 300 years represents

a natural recovery from a ‘little ice age’.

According to the program humans do have an effect on climate

but it’s infinitesimally small compared with the vast natural forces

which are constantly pushing global temperatures this way and

that.

From melting glaciers and rising sea levels, The Great Global

Warming Swindle debunks the myths, and exposes what may well

prove to be the darkest chapter in the history of mankind. According

to a group of leading scientists brought together by documentary

maker Martin Durkin everything you’ve ever been told about

global warming is probably untrue.

Just as we’ve begun to take it for granted that climate change is

a man-made phenomenon, Durkin’s documentary slays the whole

premise of global warming.

“Global warming has become a story of huge political significance;

environmental activists using scare tactics to further their

cause; scientists adding credence to secure billions of dollars in

research money; politicians after headlines and a media happy to

play along. No-one dares speak against it for risk of being unpopular,

losing funds and jeopardizing careers.”

In short, your assertions are true: Climate Change is a hoax. The

evidence proves this.

In doing a little research myself, I have found that belief in Climate

Change is like a “doctrine” that people accept as true, and

are unwilling to even consider any evidence that disproves it. This

makes it a highly controversial and highly emotional topic.

Celebration day

or sorry day

Dear Sir,

Hunters Hill Councillors

vote “Yes” to higher council

rates!

Following a vote taken

at the Hunters Hill Council’s

extraordinary meeting

Wednesday December 12 @

5pm) Hunters Hill residents

will likely now be hit with a

large hike in our 2019 rates

and SV levies.

These proposed increases

(incl. the new rate rise) will

total around 10 percent!

Out of all the councillors

that spoke at last night’s

rates meeting only Clr Collins

and Clr Miles expressed

any concerns about the burden

these increases will no

doubt have on many ratepayers.

Sadly the majority of our

Councillors didn’t agree

stating they felt that the

councils rough and ready

(and very, very rushed) community

survey of only 400

residents showed them

there was enough ratepayer

support to able to vote yes

to these heavy new council

increases!

This means the Council

will now apply to IPART to

have their new proposed SV

charges approved.

Also voted in by Council at

this week’s Ordinary Meeting

(10/12/2018) was a new

“Hunters Hill Day” (or unofficially

aka “Anti-Amalgamation

Day”!).

Regardless of any camouflaging

further down the line,

the majority of councillors

voted for this contentious

new “Hunters Hill Day on the

basis that this would be a

day to celebrate/commemorate

the Council’s rather

costly (to ratepayers!) battle

against the State Government’s

proposed council

amalgamation.

This July date will no doubt

be seen by quite a few Hunters

Hill residents (especially

often neglected and fractured

Gladesville residents)

as a sad day ... rather than

a day of celebration!

We really hope that our

increased rates and levies

are not spent (or arguably

wasted!) on this new divisive

‘Anti-Amalgamation’ (sorry

Hunters Hill day!).

That battle has already

cost ratepayers enough!!

IPART will not approve the

SV application increases

until early February 2019

so I suppose it may not be

too late if you wanted to

email council and express

your concerns. From a

concerned Gladesville ratepayer!

Tony’s Open Letter

to Scott Morrison

Dear Sir

Sensing losing the next

election to the other party

of boofheads, Prime Minister

Scott Morrison has

announced a cut of 30,000

migrants to our yearly intake.

This is a drop in the

ocean Scott, compared to

the insane and unsustainable

numbers that have been

pouring into our country over

the last 20 to 30 years.

Big business, various ethnic

groups and some politicians

are loving this but not

us.

Believe it or not Scott, not

all of us want to live like they

do in Shanghai, Mumbai, or

Hong Kong.

If you were Santa Claus

Scott this is my wish list.

Stop over development.

We don’t want monstrous,

soul less towers and ugly

cranes blotting our landscape.

We want open spaces for

our kids to run and play.

We want to be able to get

from point A to point B without

being stuck in traffic jams

that resemble those of third

world countries.

We want schools that are

not over crowded, with plenty

of playground for the kids

to run around in without the

fear of injury.

We want properly resourced

hospitals to keep up with the

Australian taxpayers that

paid for them let alone the

millions of migrants that politicians

in their wisdom have

let in more recently.

We don’t want more Middle

Eastern gangs, African

gangs, Asian ice importers

or ISIS sympathisers terrorizing

citizens and suburbs

and getting away with blue

murder or lenient sentences.

I could go on and on Scott

but I will finish on this note.

Cut the migrant numbers

to about 60,000 per annum

and could you please make

sure that at least 99 percent

of those are from Europe or

North America. Cheers Scott.

Just a bit of a

Moratorium

Dear Sir,

I refer to Ashley Isaac’s

letter The Weekly Times

December 12, 2018.

My understanding was that

State Government granted

Ryde a moratorium on this

type of development till

2020.

Maybe it was just a bit of a

moratorium we received.

Get ready Ryde, this is

twenty two apartments on

residential R2 zone.

LDA2018/0432 looks like

the thin end of the wedge.

I think this should be the

election issue instead of the

Mac Towers.

There are terrorists

. . . and terrorists

Dear Sir,

Oops - there were, of

course, three police victims

at Stringybark Creek.

(By the way, the “terrorist”

at this site had the same ethnic

background as the “terrorist”

at Clontarf.)

I also failed to mention

one of the most notorious

events: the non-refugee responsible

for the mass killing

of 35 people in 1996 at

Port Arthur.

Next time Mr I. decides to

put pen to paper (can we

even say that any more?) he

needs to consider whether

his letter can pass the Year 9

History test (as compared to

the pub test.)

In this vein, have you, gentle

reader, identified the perpetrators

mentioned in my

previous letter? Well done!

Another Ned Kelly

history lesson

Dear Sir,

Last week a correspondent

said Ned Kelly killed all

three policemen.

It was Hart who killed

Scanlon.

Following a previous fight

with Lonergan, Kelly was

fined one shilling and sixpence.

In the fight, Lonergan hurt

Ned Kelly›s testicles which

were still hurting when Kelly

killed Lonergan.

Ned Kelly›s killing of Mark

Kennedy was not very honourable.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

rest, hope and be restored

I’M NOT sure how many

Christmas Carols include

it, but there are quite

a number that include

sleep within their lyrics,

particularly a sleeping

baby.

I often smirk as we sing

about this, as a parent

who knows that such

sleep is often short lived

before the crying and

screaming at 2am starts.

Sleep is worth reflecting

upon, however, because

the most common word I

have heard this week from

people who describe to

me how they are feeling

as we reach the end of

this year is “tired”.

It is a description that I

can relate to very well.

My “tired” is really

exhaustion.

It has been a big year for

family and friends, health,

study and work.

* * *

NOT ALL my tiredness

however, is due to the

busy-ness of life. Some is

from the weariness of the

world.

If I’m honest, part of my

tiredness is an exhaustion

of not seeing justice,

mercy, compassion,

peace and solutions that

seek to improve the lives

of all people.

I’m tired of rhetoric, of

sabre rattling, of dogwhistling,

of abuse and

violence, of division and

blame, of conspiring and

undermining . . . the list

can go on.

Into this world, my

world, your world, God

enters.

CHRISTMAS reminds

To The POINT

with Rev MICHAEL ARMSTRONG

us that into the world

of the First Century, a

world in chaos due to

posturing for political

power, and into the tired

lives of people like you

and me (like Mary and

Joseph), exhausted by all

that is taking place on so

many levels, God enters,

bringing new life and

hope.

In 2018 God continues

to enter into our world -

often in ways that we do

not expect, and usually

in situations that we are

exhausted by.

God breaks in to those

times and places, and

brings forth hope, peace,

joy and love.

The difficulty for us

who are tired, is that we

often struggle to see this

- we are blinded by our

exhaustion.

Councillors vote for rates to rise in Hunters Hill

RATES will rise in Hunters Hill by 9.7 per cent next year.

The rate rise was endorsed

at last Wednesday

night’s Extraordinary

Council meeting with independent

councillors

Ross Williams, Justine

McLaughlin, Jim Sandersen

and Elizabeth

Krassoi voting in favour

of the rise with Deputy

Mayor Ben Collins and

his Liberal colleague Zac

Miles voting against it.

The rate rise will

see a home valued at

around $1 million dollars

charged an additional

$3.40 in rates per week.

The rate rise motion

was put by Mayor

Mark Bennett (Ind) who

stressed that Hunters

Hill Council’s survival

depends on it, because

the State Government

has previously threatened

to merge it with the

City of Ryde if is not financially

sustainable.

“If we don’t raise rates

we risk our independence,

regardless of what

you think about forced

council amalgamations”

the Mayor said.

“Living week to week,

hand to mouth from the

state government is not

an option.”

Mayor Bennett blamed

cost shifting by the government

onto councils

for the rate increase as

well as need to maintain

ageing assets and

pay increased legal fees

alongside the financial

pressure of increased

development commitments.

The rates we generate

have not kept pace with

our costs and in the last

12 months we have been

burdened with additional

costs such as the independent

planning panel

and audits,” he said.

“We also have a lot of

unrateable housing and

public housing.”

Deputy Mayor Ben

Collins blamed poor

management by councillors

for what he described

as the “dire

financial situation” the

council found itself in.

“We have failed the

community and here we

are asking them to bail

us out,” he said.

“We haven’t even

been able to balance the

budget and we should

be thinking of ourselves

as a board of directors,

not as a committee planning

a party.”

The Deputy Mayor singled

out the $359,000

Hunters Hill pays the

City of Ryde each year

to share library services

as an example of a “rip

off” endorsed by other

councillors.

“This is a fact and a

proven fact,” he said.

Councillor Miles said

increased government

fees and charges should

not be blamed for the

rate rise and he proposed

an unsuccessful

amendment to the

rate rise motion to have

councilor wages cut by

the same 9.7 per cent

being charged to ratepayers.

“We cannot assume

that people can pay this

10 per cent rate increase

on top of the taxes they

already pay,” he said.

The answer to our

problem is not to increase

rates but to look

at how we can raise

money from other sources.”

Independent councillors

noted that a recent

Library welcomes Chinese books

Eastwood Library has added more Chinese books to its collection following a

More than 100 books have been donated and

cover a wide array of topics for adults and children.

City of Ryde Mayor Jerome Laxale welcomed

the donation from Xin Hua Bookstore, which adds

to the library’s extensive Chinese and Korean

book section.

The new books that have been donated will

add to the City of Ryde Library Service’s growing

collection of books in languages other than

English, with a large number of Chinese, Korean

as community language newspapers available to

These new books will add to the expanding

collection of books and services available in languages

MAYOR’S COMMUNITY MESSAGE

City of Ryde Mayor Clr Jerome Laxale and Deputy Mayor Clr Simon Zhou

at the Glen Street car park in Eastwood.

Eastwood car park

Last week was another big win for

Eastwood when Council supported

my plan for a new shopper car park

as well as new open public space and

community facilities for the western

side of the town centre.

Under the plan, the existing Glen

Street car park would be relocated

to the Shaftsbury Road precinct at

the edge of Eastwood town centre.

The Glen Street car park, meanwhile,

would be transformed into a public

plaza, creating a more vibrant open

space for the community.

This plan was developed after Council

was provided with the findings from

the Draft Eastwood Traffic and Parking

Study which found that a commuter car

park in Eastwood would cause traffic

grid-lock.

I would encourage everyone in the

community to have their say on the

finalised concept plan as well as the

draft study when they go on public

exhibition in early 2019.

Ryde leads the way on renewables

Today marks a significant milestone

in City of Ryde’s journey to reduce its

emissions as we officially unveil the

Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre’s new

solar harvesting system.

The system is the largest of its kind

in north-west Sydney and includes

846 solar panels which will generate

more than 300 kilowatts of power and

save close to 66 equivalent tonnes of

Merry Christmas and a

Happy New Year

As this is my final column for 2018, I

would like to take the opportunity to

wish everyone a Happy Christmas and

a safe and prosperous new year.

It has been a big year for the

City of Ryde and 2019 is shaping

up to be just as busy as Council

continues to embark on its

ambitious agenda.

I would like to thank each of my fellow

councillors and Council staff for all

their assistance throughout the year.

A special mention must go to General

Manager George Dedes and his

Executive Team for their guidance over

the past 12 months.

Most importantly, however, I would like

to thank everyone in the community.

It is each and every one of you that

makes this city such a great place to

live, work and play, and I look forward to

interacting with you all in 2019 to ensure

that as a Council, we keep delivering on

the issues that matter most to all of you.

Sincerely,

Clr Jerome Laxale

Residents turn to TWT as Mayor admits

he is powerless to stop a development

SAMUEL STREET residents in Ryde have sought the help of The Weekly Times after City of Ryde

Mayor Jerome Laxale told them he is powerless to stop a 22 unit apartment block being built beside

their homes.

The residents said this

newspaper had stopped the

controversial development

of the Ryde Civic Centre and

they hope that a TWT public

awareness campaign will

stop the proposed development

at 19 to 22 Samuel

Street.

Their appeal to us follows

Mayor Laxale’s comment

that he is powerless to act

because the development

will be determined by a government

backed independent

planning panel in January.

There is no power for this

council to make a decision

because our power has been

stripped away by the state

government in a gross miscarriage

of democracy,” he

said.

“Although planning power

has been stripped from the

council, I’m very happy to

support the residents, I know

the area well and I’ve already

spoken in objection to something

very similar.”

The residents object to the

proposed development on

several grounds, mostly because

they believe it is out

of character in a residential

street and will increase parking

and other traffic problems.

“It is not in the public interest

at all, it is not compliant

with the council’s Local Environment

Plan and is far too

big for a street which is small

and narrow,” resident Philip

Peake said.

There will be no privacy for

neighbours and it must not

be approved.”

Neighbour Jill Tapping

agreed.

“I live directly opposite

this proposed development

which would be replacing

three small houses, an increase

in size by a factor of

eight to one, and feels like it

should belong in Redfern,”

she said.

Rae Isaacs has lived in

Samuel Street for 46 years

and told last Tuesday night’s

council meeting the proposed

development is “completely

out of character” for her low

density residential street.

A few doors down lives

Barbara Poulter who is concerned

about a risk to local

children.

The lack of public transport

would force all the residents

of this development

into cars and probably into

SUVs and the safety of children

playing in our street

will be gone and we are not

happy about that,” she said.

The residents claim that

several trees were “recently,

secretly and suspiciously”

poisoned on the site but

council staff concede they do

not have evidence to link the

suspected poisoning with the

development.

Local Cherie Barton lives

in a home on the corner of

Samuel Street and Dunbar

Street and is furious that she

wasn’t notified about the proposed

development.

The thing that really annoys

me is that I only found

out about this proposed development

through a friend,”

she said.

“But this is something that

impacts on us all because it

has a cumulative effect on all

of us in a small neighbourhood.”

Philip Peake and Samuel Street residents discuss options to fight the proposed 22

unit development in their street on Tuesday night. TWT on-the-spot PHOTO

FREE Premier’s Gala Concert

tickets now available for

Lane Cove Seniors

STAGE queen Marina Prior, Casey Donovan and multi-

Golden guitar winner Adam Brand will lead the line-up

for the highly anticipated Premier’s Gala Concerts during

next year’s NSW Seniors Festival.

Member for Lane

Cove Anthony Roberts

urged seniors to

“get in quick to secure

free tickets for

the Concerts, a highlight

of the Festival,

which are now available

through Ticketek.”

The NSW Government

hosts the Premier’s

Gala Concerts

each year “to thank

seniors for their

contributions to our

communities,” Mr

Roberts said.

These concerts

are hugely popular

among our seniors

for good reason.

They provide a great

opportunity for seniors

to enjoy marvelous

musical and variety

acts from some

of Australia’s best

performers, have

fun and meet new

friends.”

More than 30,000

older people are expected

to attend

the Premier’s Gala

Concerts and Expo

being held at the International

Convention

Centre in Darling

Harbour during the

Festival next February.

Mr Roberts said the

NSW Seniors Festival

Expo “will include

more than 50 interactive

exhibitors and a

comedy show, plus

hundreds of locally

run events in Lane

Cove and across

NSW during the Festival.”

The NSW Liberals

& Nationals Government

is proud to

fund this year’s Festival,

which will include

a range of activities,

concerts and

events,” Mr Roberts

added.

“NSW Seniors Festival

is the largest festival

for seniors in the

southern hemisphere

and is expected to

reach up to 500,000

people throughout

NSW next year.”

The Premier’s Gala

Concerts are being

held on Thursday

February 14 and Friday

February 15,

2019 and seniors can

obtain their free tickets

via Ticketek online

at www.ticketek.

com.au or by phone

on 1300 130 613.

NSW Seniors Festival

will run from February

13 to 24, 2019.

For more information

about events and

activities happening

during the Festival,

visit www.seniorsfestival.nsw.gov.au

One of the highlights of the year was the opening of Anthony Roberts’ new office on Victoria Road Gladesville.

Mr Roberts and staffers Zorica Kaye-Smith and Chris Sullivan wish constituents a safe and happy Christmas.

New police constables welcomed

Lane Cove MP Anthony Roberts has welcomed six new probationary constables to the

Ryde Police Local Area Command.

The new probationary constables

will be on the beat across the City of

Ryde and the Hunters Hill municipality

after recently graduating from the

Goulburn Police Academy.

Mr Roberts congratulated the new

recruits and said he looked forward

to the contribution they will make to

community safety.

“Community safety is absolutely

paramount, and I am thrilled to welcome

the new probationary constables

to the community,” Mr Roberts

said.

“Becoming a sworn police officer

is a tremendous honour.

The mere presence of a blue uniform

puts our minds at ease, however,

it also comes with enormous

challenges.

“As a community, we turn to the

police in our worst hour and expect

them to stand in harm’s way to prevent

and disrupt criminal activity.

“I commend our newest officers on

making the decision to put the community’s

safety above their own, and

joining one of the proudest organisations

in the State.”

Minister for Police Troy Grant said

the State Government is committed

to fortify the force into the future with

the recent investment of more than

$583 million over four years to deliver

1500 extra police.

“This will ensure we’re not only

able to maintain the current level

of service and protection the community

expects, but can also meet

emerging crime-trends head-on,” Mr

Grant said

The security and safety of the

people of NSW is a top priority for

this Government and these latest

Probationary Officers will be a great

asset in helping to identify, disrupt

and combat crime in the local community.”

They are about to embark on a

tough but rewarding career. I am

proud to welcome them into the

NSW Police family, and I wish them

all the best for their future policing

careers,” Mr Roberts concluded.

New South Wales Police Commissioner

Mick Fuller APM said that it is

a huge milestone for the recruits who

have worked extremely hard over the

past eight months.

They have already proven themselves

physically and academically

to reach this point and from Monday

they will experience the reward of

serving the community as a police

officer,” he said.

“For the next 12 months they will

continue to study and learn what it

truly means to wear the uniform at

Police Area Commands and Police

Districts across the state.”

The Ryde Police Area Command

welcomes the new recruits and

wished them all the best for their future

careers.

From Anthony Roberts

MP, Member for Lane

Cove, and all my family,

wishing everyone a

Merry

ChristMas &

a happy New

year

Valuable tips to

prevent back pain

during the holiday

festive season

WEST Ryde Physiotherapy offer three important

tips to help prevent any back pain during

the festive holiday season.

Your bags are packed,

you are ready for your long

drive to your beach destination.

And then a searing pain

comes down your back

just as you start driving.

Sounds like you? What

to do when back pain hits

you, and you still have to

drive hundreds of kilometers?

1.Get moving: Take time

to stop and walk for a few

minutes every 30 minutes.

Your spine needs to

move often.

2. Use a lumbar support

in your seat: a rolled-up

towel in the curve of your

lower back will do.

3. Stretch: After a long

period sitting, bend the

other way by placing your

hands on your hips and

lean back, repeating a few

times.

Take time this holiday

season to keep active.

Exercise is the answer

for so many preventable

diseases, back pain included.

If you want to know

more on how to prevent

and treat your back pain,

contact West Ryde Physiotherapy

on 9809-3854.

All the staff wish loyal

clients a very Merry Christmas

and a Healthy New

Year in 2019.

Thousands celebrate Ryde’s

proud Armenian heritage

MORE THAN five thousand people from Ryde’s Armenian community

celebrated the Centenary of The Founding of the Armenian Republic on

Sunday at Darling Harbour.

The Armenian Festival

featured folkloric entertainment,

traditional food and

arts and crafts and was

opened by Premier Gladys

Berejiklian who spoke of

her pride in her Armenian

speaking background.

“I often attend festivals

but today I have an extra

degree of pride,” Premier

Berejiklian said.

“We are incredibly proud

of our history and wherever

Armenians are in the world

they are great citizens.

“And today we are especially

proud to celebrate

100 years of the founding

of the first Armenian Republic

and Armenian independence.”

North Sydney MP Trent

Zimmerman spoke of the

honour of being the Federal

MP who introduced

a parliamentary motion

to recognise the Armenian

Genocide of 1915 and

1916.

“In the Federal Parliament

I’m particularly proud

to have moved this resolution,

which officially acknowledges

the Armenian

Genocide,” he said.

He also touched on the

Premier’s pride in her heritage.

“You have every right to

be proud of your community

and in my own electorate

I’m exceptionally

proud of the contribution

the Armenian community

has made.

“In fact, I’ve never been

to a country where I have

not found an Armenian

community and an Armenian

community that has

made an outstanding contribution.”

Armenian community

leaders thanked The

Weekly Times for our support

of their community,

notably the TWT’s annual

commemoration of the Armenian

Genocide in April.

and have closed parks and amenities.

The worst hit areas were

north west of Epping where

fallen trees brought down

power lines.

A statement issued by the

City of Parramatta on Sunday

states:

“Due to the severe weather

event, a number of parks in

the Parramatta LGA have

suffered damage, including

fallen trees and power lines.”

“North Rocks Road is

completely closed due to

fallen power lines on the

road and the SES and the

power company will inspect

and clear the area.

“Council teams and the

SES are working hard to inspect,

clear and repair the

damaged areas as quickly

as possible.

“More information will be

provided (on the City of Parramatta

website) as it becomes

available.”

Affected parks include

Lake Parramatta Reserve

where the lake and park are

both currently closed to the

public.

“Once fallen trees have

been removed and power

lines repaired, the park will

be reopened.”

At PH Jeffrey Reserve roof

damage has occurred to

a building near the tennis

courts.

The site is currently roped

off. It will be inspected and

the damage assessed this

week.

Sports fencing on North

Rocks Road has been badly

damaged and the footpath

has been blocked by fallen

trees.

The park is being inspected

for damage and risks.

At Charles Street Wharf a

light pole has been knocked

over by a fallen tree.

A large tree is also down at

Prince Alfred Park.

Artists take advantage of

new creative studios

Nearly 20 new artists are moving into City of Parramatta

Council’s Parramatta Artists’ Studios (PAS)

and Rydalmere Artists’ Studios (RAS) this Christmas

The painters, sculptors, videographers, performers and

photographers were chosen from over 100 applicants for

the two studio facilities.

“Our artists are valuable to our City, and contribute to

Parramatta’s vibrant and growing cultural sector,” City of

Parramatta Lord Mayor Andrew Wilson said.

“Art communicates across languages, class and culture.

Which is why our City supports artists developing

their skills and careers, because they create rich social

and cultural connections in our community.”

PAS supports artists to connect and find inspiration in

Parramatta, while the new RAS studios launch in Rydalmere

next year.

PAS has 13 studios across two-levels of a Macquarie

Street building in Parramatta’s CBD and provides professional

workspaces for creative projects and networking

with peers and art influencers.

PAS will officially open an additional six warehousestyle

artists’ studios in Rydalmere in February 2019, made

possible through the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities

Fund. It will focus on resident artists who are

beyond their emerging career stage.

The 2019 Parramatta Studio Artists are: Tully Arnot,

Justin Balmain, Tom Blake, Dacchi Dang, Kalanjay Dhir,

Rebecca Gallo, Danielle Lumanta, Anthony Macris, Nadia

Odlum, Emily Parsons-Lord, Sarah Rodigari, Marilyn Schneider,

Justine Youssef and Louise Zhang.

The 2019 Rydalmere Studio Artists are: Liam Benson,

Emma Fielden, Mehwish Iqbal, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran,

Tom Polo and Yasmin Smith.

Marist College Eastwood celebrates stellar achievements in 2018

WHILST 2018 has seen Marist College Eastwood achieve significant

success with their Higher School Certificate results (see

advertisement), the year has been significant in many other ways.

Unfortunately, they

said farewell to two

stalwarts of the college

- Brother Mark

Murphy, their beloved

pastoral co-ordinator

who passed away after

a struggle with

cancer and Father Jim

Maloney, the first boy to

ever be enrolled at the

college back in 1937.

On the sporting field,

the college had much

to celebrate at both

a team and individual

level.

The year began with

two of their four cricket

teams playing in the

Metropolitan Catholic

Schools finals, while

seven out of eight of

their soccer teams

qualified for the finals.

Marist Eastwood

placed third out of

twelve schools in the

Swimming, Athletics

and Cross Country

championships and

their Tennis squad won

the Junior and overall

Aggregate Shields.

Individually, many

students also tasted

success with many

representing the Metropolitan

Catholic

Schools Association

at the NSW Combined

Catholic Colleges and

then representing CCC

at the NSW All Schools

Championships.

Jordan Kawtal

achieved considerable

success in the Multi

class at Athletics and

Swimming and he also

represented the college

in rugby league and

touch football.

Julian Ajaka is another

talented athlete who

will represent NSW at

the Australian National

All Schools in Cairns in

December.

Conner Blaxall-Hill is

a talented all rounder,

representing NSW at

swimming and cricket

and MCS at Athletics

and Cross Country.

He captained the

Western Suburbs U/21

Poidevin Gray Shield

team and this year

made his first grade

debut for Western Suburbs

in NSW Premier

Cricket and has been

nominated for a NSW

CCC Blues award.

Robert Thorpe is an

exceptional swimmer

who has achieved

significant success at

many levels.

He excelled in the

Open Water Nationals,

Nationals and Short

course Metropolitan

and State championships

and due to these

results was selected in

the NSW Emerging Talent

squad for 2018/19.

In the field of Visual

Arts, Joseph Hanna had

his exquisite technically

resolved Body of Work

chosen for the 2019

Art Express exhibition

(ARTEXPRESS is an annual

exhibition program

featuring exemplary

bodies of work from the

NSW HSC Visual Arts

examination).

Joseph was able to

develop his engaging

ideas and distinguished

himself by submitting

a well-researched, innovative

and beautifully

crafted series of sculptures

for his HSC Visual

Arts Body of Work.

In Music, James Coulson

of Year 12 has been

offered a place at the

Sydney Conservatorium

of Music for Composition

in 2019.

This is the most elite

tertiary music university

in Australia, with large

numbers of students

applying.

James was accepted

based on the strength

of three compositions

created while studying

Music 2 as part of Sydney

Catholic Schools’

ViVA! Program.

During the Term 1

holidays, 28 football

players, 17 cultural students

and seven staff

embarked on a trip of

a lifetime to England

and France as part of

a Sporting and Cultural

tour.

They spent the first

week in England with

the football group having

training sessions at

Fulham, Chelsea and

Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the cultural

group visited the

Tate Modern Art Gallery,

St Paul’s Cathedral and

the British museum.

From London, the

group then travelled

to Lyon in France for

a weekend stay at the

Hermitage, the home of

the first Marist Brothers

and Marcellin Champagnat.

Year 12 student James Coulson has been offered a place at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music

for Composition in 2019.

Another highlight of

the tour, was attending

the Anzac Day

dawn service at Villers

- Bretonneux and following

this, a tour of

the battlefronts around

Hamel and Pozieres.

So whilst the college

reflected on the lives

of two great Marist

men, they had much to

celebrate in what has

been a stellar year for

them. In his first year

as principal of the college,

Anthony Boys (a

former student and college

captain himself)

said: “the traditions that

I remembered so fondly

in my time as a student

at the college are well

and truly still alive today

and I’m amazed at the

wealth of talent that exists

here in so many different

fields”.

C3 Church Ryde gave Christmas a different look this year; by turning out the lights.

They recently hosted

‘Carols by Glowstick’ over

two nights, where they

transformed their church

into an indoor park with

faux grass and glow sticks

for candles.

Their auditorium and

foyer was jam packed to

the back as guests sat on

picnic rugs and chairs.

Across from Top Ryde

City, the Church was an

open house for families

and members of the Ryde

community who were all

invited to sing along to the

live musical items, including

the classics and some

special performances.

Families, kids and

adults, young and elderly

alike; the idea was to create

a space where everyone

could get into the

spirit of Christmas.

C3 Church Ryde has

been established since

1999, with a cross section

of over 1200 people

mostly from the local Ryde

area.

Their wish is to extend

the invitation to anyone

who would like to come to

church over Christmas.

C3 Church Ryde will

be holding Christmas services

on Christmas Eve at

7pm and Christmas Day at

10am.

Throughout the year

they hold 4 services over

a weekend, with kids

programs as well as Full

House Youth for high

school kids.

Spiritual dimension of Christmas

THE Catholic Archbishop of Sydney – Anthony Fisher OP – asks us are we spiritually ready for Christmas.

He writes this week ..

The Christmas decorations

may be put up indecent

early in our city and

with mixed motives but

the instinct to announce

the coming of the Lord is a

sound one.

“Alertness, even excitement,

about Christ’s coming

at Christmas and return

at the end of ages, fine: but

readiness?

“Are we ever really ready?

“How could we prepare

for such a thing?

“Well, Jesus once told a

story that helps us get it.

“A king held a wedding

feast for His Son, but

those who He first invited

wouldn’t come (Mt 22:1-

14).

“He asked repeatedly

but they stuck to their own

concerns and treated the

King’s messengers shamefully.

“It’s a parable, of course,

about God’s repeated calls

to Israel to join the party

that is life in His Kingdom.

“Finally, in frustration, the

King invites strangers and

nobodies both good and

bad from the highways and

byway, in other words, the

less than holy Jews and

even the Gentiles.

“But then we get a

strange twist in the story ..

one guy’s come to the feast

dressed in thongs, a torn T-

shirt and dirty old boardies.

The King has had enough

of all this disrespect so he

gets the bouncers to throw

the guy out.

“You see, even vagabonds

in the Kingdom of

God are expected to put

their best foot forward.”

Archbishop Fisher asks

how we can best prepare

for Christmas.

“Though we might never

be completely ready for

Christ’s coming at Christmas

and at the end of time

– or our coming to Him at

the end of our lives – we

can at least do our bit to

prepare ourselves to participate,”

he writes.

“Even the poor shepherds

in the field, received

a little catechesis beforehand

from the Angels and

though they had no gold,

frankincense or myrrh to

offer, they brought their

lambs and carols and adoration.

“Dress up for the wedding

feast of God’s kingdom,

not in a tuxedo or

bridal gown, but with integrity

and godliness, as

our first reading suggested.”

He goes on to write that

hatred and prejudice are

barriers to integrity and

godliness.

“Our hearts are made

for loving, our minds for

reasoning, our senses for

perceiving: so all three are

the most natural things in

the world for us; yet how

easy it is for our affections

to go astray, our minds to

be warped, our vision to be

distorted.

“Hatred, prejudice, egotism,

indifference – you

name it – these things

unprepare us for Christ’s

coming, put up barriers,

hills and ravines.

“But knowing, loving and

serving God and His divine

image in our fellows: these

things smooth out the way

for Him.

“ So if we try to dress

ourselves in integrity and

godliness, if we seek to

know, love and serve God

and His people, we are

CHRISTMASCHURCHSERVICES

A Christmas gift for those in need in Gladesville and Putney

CHRISTMAS spirit is alive and thriving in the

City of Ryde following yet another successful

Anglicare Toys N Tucker Appeal.

“Anglicare needed to

send their 1.5 tonne van

to fit all the donations

we received” said David

Mears, Senior Minister at

Christ Church Gladesville,

“Each year, we partner

with Anglicare to collect

for their Christmas Toys

N Tucker Appeal and

each year, the people

of Gladesville and Putney

look out for those in

need.”

The appeal was run by

Christ Church Gladesville

who worked in partnership

with Putney Public

School and Christ Church

Gladesville Pre-School

in asking neighbours,

school families and

friends to donate tinned

food, toiletry items or

toys.

The parents and kids

at the Preschool were

really enthusiastic about

collecting for the Toys

N Tucker Appeal, it was

a great way to lead into

Christmas” said Kathryn

Trimble, Director of Christ

Church Gladesville Pre-

School.

“Christmas reminds

us of God’s gift to us in

Jesus, so it seems fitting

that our community

would reflect that generosity

in their gifts to others,”

Rev Mears added.

“Back in November, our

church celebrated being

part of the Gladesville

community for 140

years and we love being

able to encourage our

neighbours to look out

for those less fortunate.

Once again, I’m thankful

to God for Principal John

Koletti, Director Kathryn

Trimble and all the

families at Putney Public

School and Christ Church

Preschool for their help in

this collection.”

The donations are collected

by Anglicare and

packaged into gift boxes

at their warehouse in

Villawood.

Last year, Anglicare distributed

4,650 Christmas

food hampers and 2,917

gift parcels to those in

need around all around

Sydney.

Christmas Services at

Christ Church Gladesville

are 5pm, 7pm and 11pm

(Christmas Eve) and 9am

(Christmas Day).

All welcome.

Passionate about language,

Ann started her

Bachelor’s degree at Macquarie

University four years

ago when she became a

Link Housing tenant and

moved to Lane Cove.

“I am thankful to Link

Housing for supporting me

to complete my degree

through their Education

Scholarships program,”

she said.

This year, Link Housing,

a not-for-profit housing

provider, donated $48,000

in education scholarship

funding to their community

housing residents to help

them achieve their goals.

inspiring.

“Both my daughter and I

are very grateful. Receiving

the award from an Olympian,

who is also an education

scholarship recipient

herself and who can appreciate

its value, was a bonus.

Jessica is a wonderful

young role model for our

community, especially for

the young ones,” Ann said.

Residents like Ann are

also good role models.

In an environment of social

housing, where the

media often portrays only

the negative aspects, Link

Housing is on a mission to

shine a spotlight on people

like Ann, who represent a

large portion of their tenants.

When asked what advice

she has for others, Ann explains:

“I don’t usually offer

advice because everyone

travels their own path in

their own shoes.

But as someone who

comes from a family of

people who believe that education

and knowledge are

the most valuable things, I

would just say to anyone

who for any reason hasn’t

done a university degree

when they were younger,

to try and find the way to

go and do one. Look for

scholarship opportunities

if you need to. Being a mature

age student is hard but

superbly rewarding. The

sense of accomplishment

is incredible. And the ex-

ample I set for my child is

invaluable.”

The Link Housing Education

Scholarship is part

of the organisation’s commitment

to providing more

than just a ‘home’, but also

the support and services to

help residents into education

and employment.

Each year, awards are given

to mature age students,

high school graduates going

into tertiary education,

and school age children

competing in elite sports or

simply looking for the financial

support to participate

in school camps and extracurricular

activities.

She has just signed a new

contract to do part-time

22 THE WEEKLY TIMES Wednesday 19 December, 2018

Tribute to

ELEANOR KATRINE WITCOMBE

Ninety-five year old Eleanor Witcombe, AM, a long-time resident of Woolwich, was recently

farewelled by friends, family and colleagues at a Celebration of her life conducted

by Rev. Kimberly at St Marks Anglican Church, Hunters Hill.

Eleanor was born in Yorktown, South Australia,

and lived through the Depression and War years,

so knew hard times. However, she displayed a

great creative talent, and was a prolific writer.

With her wicked sense of humour, her generous

nature and her ‘larger than life personality’ she

enjoyed many rich and varied experiences which

have encompassed a wonderful and fulfilling life.

She has contributed significantly to the arts,

writing for radio, film, television and theatre, and

has been recognised with many awards during

her lifetime.

In 1947, Eleanor was awarded a scholarship as

a student playwright to Peter Finch’s Mercury

REALESTATE

ELEANOR WITCOMBE AM was a colourful character who beamed when awarded a Member of the Order

of Australia (AM) in 2014, pictured above. She was honoured in the Memorial Montage at last week’s AACTA

Awards. Eleanor loved colours and unusual things so her friends had artist Shan Richards hand paint her coffin

with an adornment of colourful designs for her funeral service at St Mark’s Church Hunters Hill.

Labor commits to multi

storey car park for Ryde

NSW Opposition Leader Michael Daley and

NSW Labor Candidate for Ryde, Mayor Jerome

Laxale, have announced that if elected, a Daley

Labor Government would build a multi-storey

commuter car park at West Ryde Railway Station

and upgrade parking at Denistone Station.

Mr Daley said NSW Labor

had heard the calls

of the thousands of commuters

calling for a multistorey

car park, and that

Daley Labor will fund the

much-needed project.

He said the Liberal Government

“has done what

it always has” and made

a political decision and

already offered funding

for a car park - with

strings attached, specifically

that it’s built in Eastwood

- without listening

to the people or the local

council.

“We’ve announced four

or five commuter car

parks all around Sydney

now,” Mr Daley told The

Weekly Times.

“We recognise people

don’t want gigantic

billion-dollar stadiums.

They want small things

that make a difference to

their lives.

“Instead of driving

around the block 20 times

on a rainy morning looking

for somewhere to

park, we’ll give them a

brand new, multi-storey

commuter car park here

at West Ryde - they drive

in, walk undercover, hop

on a train, go to work, get

back with families and

not worry about where to

park.”

The Berejiklian Government

has already offered

$25m to fund a car park

in Eastwood and Mayor

Laxale said the Liberals

had originally pursued the

idea of a car park at Eastwood

Oval and then suggested

the town centre at

Eastwood as a location.

“We found out at a council

meeting last week,

that would cause traffic

Theatre School, and the next year

she wrote three plays for children,

which took off nationally. They were

PIRATES AT THE BARN, THE BUSH-

RANGERS and SMUGGLERS BE-

WARE (which became a series for

ABC-TV.)

Ms Witcombe spent five years

in England with the BBC, and then

continued on to Hollywood. She was

commissioned to write scripts for

film by TwentiethCentury Fox and

Paramount.

Katherine Hepburn and Sir Robert

Helpmann requested that she portray

the life of DAISY BATES (an Irish

woman who came out to Australia

and lived and worked with the Aboriginal

people) on screen.) Katherine

was to star as Daisy, but the film did

not eventuate because of Katherine’s

ill health. However, this led to

Eleanor beginning to spend many

years working on a biography of

Daisy. Her meticulous research has

resulted in major revelations about

Daisy’s life which have been invaluable

to other Australian Historians

for use in their own works.

When Eleanor returned to Sydney

she wrote drama adaptions of

books and stories for the ABC, and

the Macquarie and Lux Radio Theatres.

She became a founding member

of The Australian Writers’ Guild,

and was a formidable defender of

the rights of authors. She was also

instrumental in the beginningofChildren’s

Theatre in Australia.

She ventured into musicals which

were performed in the Phillip

Street Theatre, such as RIDE ON

A BROOMSTICK, and MISTRESS

MONEY (starring Gordon Chater).

Her notable television works included

being a contributing writer

for THE MAVIS BRAMSTON SHOW

gridlock in Eastwood,”

Clr Laxale said, referring

to reports by traffic engineers

assessing the impact

of a car park in state

government’s preferred

location in Eastwood.

“Residents have been

scratching their heads

and saying ‘why don’t

they build something at

West Ryde?’ and we’ve

(1964-68), her adaption of PAS-

TURES OF THE BLUE CRANE (1969)

which is now being used by the ABC

for English in schools, and her adaption

of RUTH PARK’S THE HARP IN

THE SOUTH (1987).

She then joined the Writing Team

of NUMBER 96 (1972). The following

year she co-wrote the ABC-TV series

SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS (From

Ethel Turner’s novel).

In 1971 she adapted Norman Lindsay’s

children’s book THE MAGIC

PUDDING as a theatrical show for

marionettes, which was a huge success.

Eleanor was the screenwriter for

THE GETTING OF WISDOM, directed

by Bruce Beresford in 1977,

which won an AFI award (for best

screenplay) and received a number

of nominations, and this was followed

in 1979 by her adaption to

screen of Miles Franklin’s book MY

BRILLIANT CAREER. This was produced

by Margaret Fink, directed by

Gillian Armstrong andstarred Judy

Davis and Sam Neill. It won six AFI

Awards, and for years was Australia’s

highest grossing film.

Amongst her many awards , Eleanor

received an Emeritus Award in

1999 from the Literature Board of the

Australian Council. She was the first

screenwriter to ever be so honoured.

In 2014, she was made a member

of the Order of Australia (AM) for her

outstanding contribution to the arts.

Eleanor is to be honoured by The

Australian Academy of Cinema and

Television Arts (AACTA) next week,

in their December 2018 Awards Ceremony

“In Memoriam Montage”.

Llayna Richards.

“Under Michael’s leadership

we’ll make that

happen if we form government

victory.

A dashing Brooks was

superb as he set a great

platform for the Pirates’

innings of 9-190 as well as

taking a catch whilst fielding.

In fact this seemed to be

the pattern.

Do well with the bat and

you’ll do well in the field.

James Woods scored 22

and took a catch and Marco

Angelini scored 23 and

grabbed two wickets.

Hancock capped a fine

game with two catches.

The Hillies then slayed

the Lions for 105 in the

25th over with Hancock

(4-12 off six overs), Adrian

Kennedy (4-25 off seven

overs) and Andrew Hobden

(1-27 off eight overs)

the pick of the bowlers.

Hunters Hill tied their

Jack Pace Shield fixture

against Barker Old Boys

at Boronia Park Oval.

The Barker Old Boys

posted 8-197 with Pirates’

star Hobden claiming 4-22

off seven, spinner Marco

(2-16) and debutant Rodney

Bourgonjen (2-14).

In reply Woods led the

way with a cracking 71,

stalwart Dave ‘Jav’ Wilkinson

compiled a gritty 43

not out, Alex Miller (31)

and Brooks a quickfire

17 as the Pirates finished

6-197 at the end of their

35 overs.

More cricket honours

for emerging Bullettes

THEY started out as novices

in 2017 - now these talented

female cricketers from the Epping

Bulls Cricket Club can

stand tall and proud after continuing

their meteoric rise to

more championship honours.

Under the coaching of Derek Mc-

Carthy, the Bullettes - Epping Bulls’

first ever all girls cricket team - has

backed up last year’s premiership

triumph by finishing joint premiers in

the North Shore 2018 Spring competition.

The girls were all new to cricket last

summer and despite a background in

other sports, set their mind on taking

on a fresh challenge.

They won last year’s Grand Final

against the more fancied Gordon

Cricket Club off the last ball of the

match.

This season saw some new faces

come into the side and with players

ranging from 14-16 years of age

dominating the Under 17 competition.

The season started slowly as they

worked on new combinations and by

the third game the Bullettes had hit

their straps, winning the remainder of

their fixtures.

The final round against Abbotsleigh

was to determine the Premiers.

Abbotsleigh posted a respectable

122 off 20 overs before the Bullettes

responded strongly with solid batting

- eclipsing their rivals score in the

17th over.

Coach McCarthy said it was quite

incredible to see the girls gell and

perform at a high level for only their

second season in the sport.

Their progress is like the Aussie

version of Bend it Like Beckham,”

said McCarthy.

“With girls cricket the fastest

growing sport in Australia, Epping

Bulls are looking at having teams in

younger ages for the new competition

starting in February,” he said.

The Bullettes were presented with

their Premiers medals at a recent

Womens Big Bash League fixture at

North Sydney Oval.

GLADESVILLE Women’s Bowling Club members (above) are restng

up after another fruitful year of lawn bowling. They would like

o wish all TWT staff and readers a Merry Christmas and prosperus

2019.

CAMERON and Michael from Belle Properties, sponsors of

theGladesville Sporties Bowling Club Jackpot Triples, conduct the

draw last Wednesday for over $300. Four members missed out, as

the lucky number was one. Jackpots next week.


Wednesday 19 December, 2018 THE WEEKLY TIMES 31

Back hot spots keep

Tigers colts sidelined

SYDNEY Cricket Club have been rocked by serious back injuries

to key all rounders Harry Manenti and Alex Glendenning.

The talented duo are

idelined indefinitely afer

being ruled out of the

igers’ past two fixtures

ith back burning sensaions

which have dented

he club’s finals aspiraions

in the NSW Premier

ricket first grade cometition.

18 year old Manenti is

egarded as one of the

tate’s most promising

oung cricketers and was

orced to pull out of the

SW Metro side at the reently

completed National

/19 Cricket Championhips

in Adelaide.

A sharp seam bowler

nd capable batsman, the

ookie cub has picked up

aluable wickets since his

levation to the top grade

arlier this year.

Glendenning is an enrgetic

pace bowler and

ashing batsman who pro-

Hawks’ touch football talent

impress at NSW State Cup

vides versatility and skill

down the order.

Tigers’ officials hope Manenti

and Glendenning will

return to the fold early in

the New Year as the team

attempts to lock up a finals

berth.

MEANWHILE Gordon finished

on 3-178 after their

first grade clash with Sydney

was abandoned due

to inclement weather after

57 overs last Saturday at

Chatswood Oval.

The Stags were 2-18

before half centuries from

skipper Steve Colley (84)

and Harry Evans (80 not

out) put the home side in a

strong position.

The pair added 148 runs

for the third wicket before

Ryde Eastwood Hawks Mens Open B team that reached the NSW State Cup semi finals.

RYDE EASTWOOD Hawks’ representative touch football teams showed

they are a force to be reckoned with after skilful performances at the

recent NSW State Cup Touch Football Championships at Port Macquarie.

The Hawks sent three

powerful squads with

the Mens Open B teams

reaching the finals and the

Mens Open A and Mixed

Open A sides turning in

strong performances during

the tough three day

tournament that featured

the best players from all

over the State.

Staged in hot sapping

conditions, the Hawks

competed well but were

outgunned by some powerful

opponents at the

business end of the Carnival.

Ryde Eastwood’s Open

A side had the privilege of

playing against the touring

English representative

team in round 4 of their

draw.

The English lived up to

their reputation of being

aggressive and strong in

the rucks but the Hawks,

who boast some of the

best young talent in the

country, showed their class

witn the likes of Matthew

Wilson and Tyrone Tadros

leading the way.

The Hawks Open Bs recorded

some strong victories

to advance to the Cup

Finals.

Coach Liam Liston had

built a team mixed with

youthful exuberance and

experienced hard heads to

guide them around.

For the Mixed Open team

ir was their first step up into

the NSW State titles and

although they never gave

up in any match, they’ll

return much better for the

experience next season.

The traditional Club Dinner

was held at the beautiful

waterfront Panthers

Leagues Club and all players

and officials were able

to enjoy a social gathering

and reflect on the first two

days of the tournament

- thanks to the highly regarded

Debbie Brewin for

carrying on this tradition

and to the Hawks’ Board.

Ryde Eastwood squared

off with Balmain in a local

derby Mens Open B semi

final that proved an absorbing

tussle.

The Hawks led for most

of the game before allowing

the Tigers to score a

late try to salvage a 4-all

draw.

In the drop off, Hawks’

star Jean - Louis Jones

had a chance to snatch

victory but was denied by

tenacious Tigers defence.

Another player dropped off

and it was fast becoming a

classic.

Balmain sealed victory

when they scored in the

corner and went on to

thump Western Suburbs in

the final

Players Player Awards

Open A: Tyrone Tadros;
