TWT ELECTION 2019 EDITORIAL

This Saturday we all go to the polls and elect a new

Federal Government for the Commonwealth of Australia

for the next three years with effects that will continue

for years to follow.

Therefore it is incumbent on each and everyone of us to carefully

consider the policies being offered to us before we cast our vote.

Unfortunately neither of the major parties are prepared to tackle

the real issues facing all of us: primarily the cost of electricity

combined with the real prospect of blackouts because of the failure

to guarantee new power stations combined with the imminent

return of water restrictions and rationing because of no new dams.

Both these possible disasters are the result of the major parties

sucking up to the Greens policies attempting to win their votes.

Former Liberals Prime Minister John Howard lost his own seat and

government because of this and his attempt to accommodate the

hoax of global warming and man made climate change.

Overhead footbridge

a better solution

Dear Sir,

I refer to the article

about wanting a pedestrian

crossing on Constitution

Road West outside

the new Meadowbank

skate park (The Weekly

Times May 8, 2019).

I travel past this park four

times a day, every day, all

year.

I have seen the dangers

for myself and am convinced

that a pedestrian

crossing is not the best solution.

I believe the better outcome

would be an overhead

footbridge together

with fencing along the Victoria

Road side of the street

to discourage road crosses.

This would prevent risk

to a child or elderly person.

This could also lessen cars

double parked to drop off.

I have had a grandchild hit

by a car three years ago by

the careless action of a parent

and the impact that has

had on the child, his sister

who witnessed it, the driver

involved.

I don’t wish this on anyone

so please consider this option

and not put children’s

crossing on a major road

before acknowledging

costs to rectif

I call on the Council to

consider the proposal as a

matter of urgency.

PS I believe bridges are

unsightly but in this case,

now needed.

New adventure

playground

Dear Sir,

I am inclined to the

view that councils get

things wrong far more

often than they get

things right however

the new adventure playground

in the park off

Constitution Road is a

clear exception.

It warms my heart whenever

I drive past it to see

a lot of children playing

outdoors who seem to

be having a really, electronic

device free, good

time.

So congratulations to all

who were involved in making

it happen.

You have brought much

pleasure to the children

using it and to the adults

looking after them and

Investment differs

from ownership

Dear Sir,

Bob Selinger amuses

me. He claims to be

a school teacher yet

he appears to me to

struggle differentiating

between foreign investment

and foreign ownership.

A report released by

Credit Suisse in 2017

showed that 25 percent

of all new housing sold in

NSW was bought by the

Chinese.

Victoria was nearly 20

percent.

That is an enormous

amount of housing being

bought by the Chinese

keeping prices high

and making it difficult for

many locals to attain the

Australian dream of owning

their own property.

Do our politicians care?

I certainly don’t think so.

When the Chinese buy

our housing Bob where

do you think the rents received

and capital gains

made go to.

I will tell you Bob, they

go back to China.

Same with the developments

they undertake,

the mines and farms and

infrastructure projects

they control.

They are not buying

our assets because they

want to make us rich

they buy them because

they want to make themselves

richer.

Is that any clearer Bob

or do you want me to

simplify further for you.

Dear Sir,

Liberals don’t support

a ban on water

sold in plastic bottles

because people will

buy soft drink instead.

There is a big difference

– water comes freely

out of a tap and is easily

available.

People can plan to take

water in reused bottles to

events.

The problem these

days is people want convenience

and not have to

plan.

But this selfishness is

wrecking our environment

which will cost

every economy dearly in

future years.

This shows the problem

with the Liberal way

of thinking.

In 1970 Prince Charles

warned of this situation

– now there is a real conservative!

Water is undoubtedly

the best drink – but remember

always to take

some with you.

Mayors demand

climate action

Dear Sir,

As members of the

Cities Power Partnership

local government

climate alliance, we

demand national action

and call upon the Federal

Government to join

us in making tackling

climate change the top

priority.

At the local level we’re

working with our communities

and with each

other to develop a strong

climate response, and to

support Australia’s shift

to clean energy.

All tiers of government

have a role to play in

driving down Australia’s

greenhouse gas pollution,

and we need swift

action at the Federal level

to address our escalating

national emissions.

We demand three major

actions from our Federal

leaders:

Strong national climate

policy aligned to the science

and a national commitment

to rapidly transitioning

to 100 percent

clean energy

Support the rapid

phase out of fossil fuel

subsidies which contribute

to climate change

Provide long-term finance

to support implementation

of clean

energy and sustainable

transport, such as rooftop

solar, battery storage,

electric vehicle charging

stations, public and active

transport infrastructure

in council and community

areas

Hydro-carbons

Beat Biofuels

on all counts

Dear Sir,

Coal and oil are made

from plants and animals

that died millions of years

ago when the atmosphere

contained abundant carbon

dioxide plant food.

They are now very concentrated

forms of energy

which can be extracted

from very small areas of

land.

Burning these natural

hydro-carbons returns CO2

and fresh water to the atmosphere

thus greatly assisting

global plant growth.

If we are lucky these extra

gases in the atmosphere

may also slightly delay the

start of Earth’s next cooling

cycle, but this looks

unlikely.

Ethanol and biodiesel are

made from plants growing

now - sugar cane, beets,

palm oil and grains. Growing

these crops requires

large areas of land and

valuable fresh water for irrigation.

Growing bio-fuel crops

extracts CO2 from the atmosphere

but burning them

quickly puts it back. This is

a zero-sum game that does

nothing positive for the environment

or the climate.

Coal and oil are thus more

enviro-friendly than biofuels.

Locking the gate on coal,

oil and gas while supporting

policies that waste land,

food crops and water for

motor fuels is environmental

desecration.

Speculators should be

free to make biofuels but

these should not be subsidised

or mandated.

Help endangered

species to return

Dear Sir,

I’m writing to at this late

stage in a nearly endless

Federal Election campaign

hoping that you will

pass on to your readers

some news that other

papers and TV are mostly

ignoring, being focussed

on this year’s election as

merely a choice between

the lesser of two evils,

“Unaffordable” Bill Vs

“Salvation” Scomo.

The news is, that just like

with the celebrated Lord

Howe Island Stick Insect

(Dryococelus Australis),

through a great deal of effort,

the Australian Democrats

(Chippus Democratus

Australis) are also back

from their near extinction,

with the Party being re-registered

in time to field Senate

teams in NSW, South

Australia and Victoria this

year.

On May 18, voters will

find Pete Mailer (from

Parkes / Boggabilla) and

Chris Buckman (from Tamworth)

at group AH, as the

NSW Australian Democrats,

on this year’s chaff

bag sized Senate paper.

Of course, the Democrats

are a step back from the far

Right, towards the Centre

of the field.

Pete and Chris are committed

to carrying on the

work of previous Australian

Democrat Senators like

Vicki Bourne, Don Chipp,

Paul McLean, Colin Mason,

Aiden Ridgeway and Karen

Sowada.

It would mean a lot to a lot

of election weary and middle

of the road Australians

if you could print this letter,

or some of its points, and

like many other Democrats,

I have never lost faith in the

kindness of strangers.

Why vote for an

Independent?

-Dr Arthur explains!

North Sydney Independent candidate Dr

Arthur Chesterfield-Evans points out the

advantages of voting for an Independent

candidate and has the runs on the board to

justify them.

He points out that the major parties do what their

donors want, not what the people want.

Their MPs have to put up their hands on command

no matter whatever they may personally think

or believe”, he says.

“Issues that may offend major donors such as climate

change or taxing big corporations get ignored.

“Good MPs following their constituent interests

and beliefs are the best way for democracy to work”,

Dr Arthur says.

“Only independent s can act for you, not the big donors”.

Dr Arthur is a longtime Woolwich resident and has

successfully campaigned on many local issues including

Foreshore 2000, Save Hunters Hill High School,

Gore Bay redevelopment, stopping Council amalgamations

and had nine years experience in NSW Parliament

as an Australian Democrat.

He is a medical doctor who spent 20 years fighting

the tobacco industry and is still working in medicine.

Dr Arthur reminds voters to fill in your preferences

Lord Mayor welcomes

Powerhouse precinct

CITY of Parramatta Lord Mayor Andrew Wilson

the Powerhouse Precinct will undoubtedly be a worldclass

destination that will attract hundreds of thousands

of visitors to Sydney’s Central City.”

“I look forward to seeing the vision these teams have for

truly global city.”

The Powerhouse Precinct is one of a number of Citychanging

projects underway, including the Parramatta

Light Rail, Parramatta Square, and Riverside Theatres

Popular local waterfront

sports park gets facelift

MORRISON Bay Park is getting a facelift .

The popular sports venue in Putney

is to get a landscaped walkway

on the south western side, a

new fitness station. a multipurpose

outdoor court with basketball rings

and a new cricket net.

The works are due to be completed

by the City of Ryde later

this year and will be illuminated by

pathway lighting along the waterfront

and along the eastern edge of

the park.

There will also be an upgrade to

the foot bridge over the canal near

Frances Road.

The works are the initiative of Clr

Roy Maggio with the support of

Mayor Jerome Laxale, councillors

and staff.

“I am making things happen for

the people of Ryde,” Clr Maggio

said.

“ My first motion in 2017 when

elected was to improve our parks,

especially Morrison Bay Park and

this motion was unanimously supported

by councillors.

“I am now pleased to confirm that

after all the investigations these

works at Morrison Bay Park are

scheduled to be undertaken this financial

year,with construction now

underway.”

He said that funding for these

works is expected to be part of the

Council’s draft Four Year Delivery

Plan.

The main objective is to make

the city and our parks active and

healthy places go and for all to enjoy,”

he said.

“With the latest success of the

skate board park in Meadowbank,

known as Roy’s Place, I’m proud to

be part of a council team delivering

what matters to the people of

Ryde.”

He said feedback from families

about the skate board park has

been overwhelmingly supportive.

The regular comment being

made to me is that it gets the kids

out instead of on being on electronic

devices all day.”

The hub has dropped the

seniors tag from the name

and replaced it with the word

“community” to reflect the 20

different services it provides

to people of all abilities and

backgrounds.

The restored cottage on

Gladesville Road was officially

opened by Mr Roberts on

Friday who told The Weekly

Times he is impressed with

the way staff and volunteers

have used the grant money.

“What a fantastic job these

staff members and volunteers

do for the community and to

walk in here today is like walking

into the set of one of those

home make over programs

you see on television,” he

said.

“We have taken a run down

but functional old place and

turned it into a cottage and

into a home, complete with a

new TV, artwork and furnishings.

“As the Minister for Corrective

Services I can tell you we

are building new prisons at the

moment and I might need the

expertise of staff and volunteers

here who have achieved

a wonderful result within their

budget.”

Gladesville Community Connection

Manager Branka Ivkovic

thanked Mr Roberts for the

grant and said she looked forward

to welcoming new and

valued people.

“We are a busy centre which

runs services for seniors and

people with a disability,” Ms

Ivkovic said.

“Men’s and women’s groups

come here on specific days

for a program of activities and

outings and disability groups

of younger people meet here

for activities before being taken

on outings every Monday

and Friday.”

John F Booth AM nominated

for Freedom Of Municipality

A MOTION to award The Weekly Times Managing Editor John F Booth

AM with Freedom Of The Municipality of Hunters Hill was defeated by five

votes to two during Monday night’s council meeting.

Deputy Mayor Ben Collins and his Liberal

colleague Zac Miles proposed the motion in

recognition of Mr Booth’s “extraordinary and

ongoing contribution to journalism” in Hunters

Hill but the motion was defeated due to

a lack of supporting documentation as well

as concerns about correct procedure and

protocol.

But the Deputy Mayor argues that the supporting

documentation to back Mr Booth’s

commitment to Hunters Hill is there for all to

see, delivered in letterboxes across the heritage

municipality every Wednesday.

The Weekly Times has a journalist here

every week and this is how our residents find

out about what is happening in Hunters Hill

and having a journalist here every week is

a tremendous asset to our community,” he

said.

“You can have a voice but you cannot tell

the story if no one can hear your voice and

LIBERAL councillors were stunned when

a motion to seek state government feedback

on a possible underground car park

at Gladesville Reserve was defeated by five

votes to two during Monday night’s council

meeting.

The motion sought to write to Transport

Minister Andrew Constance to sound out

his view on government funding for the car

park which would create parking spots for

nearby ferry and bus commuters.

“I don’t want to know if the state government

has an appetite for this because

I do not like the idea,” Clr Elizabeth Krassoi

said.

Councillor Jim Sanderson said he could

HUNTERS HILL is to get a bush land

committee.

Councillors voted unanimously for the

new committee during Monday night’s

council meeting and it will have powers to

recommend conservation and protection

measures for Hunters Hill’s flora, fauna and

biodiversity.

Local conservationist Heather Armstrong

spoke in support of creating the new committee.

“It is about much more than managing

weed control and it is not a simple undertaking

because in the past bush land management

has suffered and we need to do

much, much more,” she said.

“We have four endangered ecological

communities here.

a protest in front of no one is not a protest

at all.”

Freedom Of The Municipality is a honourary

award that was recently given to Phil Jenkyn

OAM, who was nominated in a Mayoral Minute

by Emeritus Mayor Richard Quinn.

“We all know John Booth has received numerous

awards but the reason we need to

honour him is that we have never given him

anything from Hunters Hill,” Deputy Mayor

Collins said.

Councillor Miles agreed.

“Like him or lump him, John Booth has

been part of our community.”

“His paper is always on our doorstep, like

clockwork and he has shown the love he has

for this community.”

Councillor Miles described Mr Booth as a

larger than life character.

“He’s the only man I know who could order

John Howard about, at will.”

Gladesville Reserve car park

idea killed off at the first post

not support the proposed letter without

popular support for it by the community.

“We should consult with our residents

because I can see numerous problems,”

he said.

But Liberal Clr Zac Miles was gob

smacked.

“To say no to a potential source of income

that alleviates parking problems is lunacy, it

is bizarre to say the least,” he said.

Deputy Mayor Ben Collins also supported

the proposed letter.

“This is the kind of innovative thinking

Hunters Hill needs and to say no because

this could be controversial is the kind of

thinking where nothing gets done.”

Biodiversity becomes a living

commitment in Hunters Hill

“So this is about protecting our biosphere,

everything from big animals to bugs on the

ground need protecting.”

Concerned environmentalist Robert

Hayes said bush land management requires

a special focus, expertise and a

committee exclusively dedicated to the

task before it.

The advisory committee would not only

advise the council on how to meet statutory

obligations but will encourage volunteers.”

Councillors heard that Hunters Hill needs

to meet state government environmental

standards by 2021.

Britain’s popular village park land committees

– patronised by His Royal Highness

Prince Charles – could provide a model for

Hunters Hill.

THE City of Ryde’s popular Cork and Fork food and wine festival will be held at Kissing

Starting at 11am and

rocking until 4pm, this

gourmet pop-up festival

by the Parramatta River

will celebrate great food

and fine wine as well as

the great sound of guest

stars The Hot Potato

After numerous performances

across Sydney,

The Hot Potato Band has

a reputation as an engaging

band that generates

a groovy beat that people

of all ages and backgrounds

can chill out too.

““We are roving pop,

Walk to School

on this Friday

THIS Friday is National

Walk Safely to

School Day.

Dr Natasha Schranz from

the Heart Foundation said

the aim of National Walk

Safely to School Day is

to encourage children to

keep fit.

“Parents, caregivers,

teachers and society as a

whole have a vital role to

play in ensuring our young

people remain active on a

daily basis,” she said.

“It’s absolutely essential

they lead the way in promoting

healthy habits for

our kids early on so these

become part of their everyday

lifestyle in years to

come.”

Dr Schranz said this Friday’s

event provids a great

opportunity for families to

put their best foot forward

and start prioritising physical

activity.

“Our kids have spoken

out on the importance of

physical activity, and they

want their voices to be

heard,” she said.

“However, it seems that

this love of walking is not

being encouraged during

the morning and afternoon

drop-offs and pick-ups,

which is unfortunate given

that walking to or from

school is one of the easiest

ways to get kids moving

more each day.”

Cork & Fork takes place this

Sunday

The picturesque Kissing Point

Park in Putney will be the place

to be this Sunday (19 May) with

growing regions of NSW as

well as spirits, craft beer and

great food. A 2019 branded

Cork & Fork wine glass will

need to be purchased on the

day for $5 to sample all of the

wonderful wine, brewery and

distillery suppliers on offer.

Meanwhile, for the kids there

will be free workshops, face

painting as well as unlimited

pony rides for $5.

We do encourage all

festival-goers to use public

Mother’s Day Massacre

as Sydney FC smash

Melbourne rivals for six

GLADESVILLE based Alex Wilkinson

will be flying the flag for TWT Territory

this weekend when Sydney FC travel

across to the opposite side of the continent

to take on Perth Glory in the A-

League Grand Final.

The Sky Blues

smashed rivals Melbourne

Victory 6-1 in

a Mother’s Day massacre

to book a place

in the championship

decider.

Sydney FC took the

lead in the third minute

through defender Aaron

Calver after Victory

goalkeeper Lawrence

Thomas fumbled a corner.

Sky Blues captain Alex

Brosque doubled the

lead with a world-class

volley from inside the

box in the 43rd minute.

And the visitors made

it 3-0 just before the end

of the first period, with

defender Leigh Broxham

heading in an own

goal.

Normally a 3-0 lead

at half time would have

kicked off early celebrations

among Sydney

FC’s vocal fans in

The Cove’ supporters

area, but the world had

only just witnessed two

spectacular European

Champions League

semi-final comebacks

by Liverpool and Tottenham

midweek.

On top of that, Adelaide

United showed

they were capable of a

comeback last Friday

too when they levelled

in the dying seconds

of extra time to make it

3-3 before Perth Glory

eventually prevailed

in a nail-biting penalty

shootout.

Clearly, the Sky Blues

weren’t happy with

three either.

Striker Adam Le Fondre

made it four from a

spot kick after the break

and added another to

his tally after clinically

slotting the ball past the

keeper in the 69th minute.

Midfield maestro Milos

Ninkovic made it six

with a volley at the far

post in the 88th minute

before Ola Toivonen

managed a consolation

goal in the dying stages

of the match.

Meanwhile, it has

emerged our local hero

Wilkinson has been

among a group of players

trying to convince

Brosque to hold off his

retirement for another

year.

Wilkinson says Brosque

could easily play

on and when he’s in his

element, lifts the whole

team.

“When he’s on….it really

sends a message

through to the rest of

the boys,” he said.

“We’ve all been trying

to convince him to stay

on for at least another

year because for me he

could do it on his ear.

We saw the quality he

possesses - he’s got

the touch, he’s got the

speed, he’s got the finish.”

“But the decision is up

to him - he knows his

body and he’s decided

to call time and what

better way to end it than

in a grand final.”

Wilkinson also paid

tribute to coach Steve

Corica, noting his seamless

transition from assistant

coach under

Graham Arnold - now

the Socceroos boss - to

head coach.

The assistant coach

can have a few different

hats on; they can

be closer to the playing

group, have a bit

of banter around, but

when you step up to

that head coach you’ve

got to remove yourself

a bit from the playing

group and that can

be difficult,” Wilkinson

said.

“But he’s done it so

well and he’s been first

class.

“It was a lot of pressure

stepping up into

the job with the amount

of success we’ve had

over the last couple of

years, so for him to take

us to an FFA Cup final,

finish second in the

league and now obviously

qualify for a grand

final, for him it’s been a

fantastic year.”

The 2019 A-League

Grand Final - Perth

Glory v Sydney FC -

kicks-off at 4.30pm

(6.30pm AEST) and will

be broadcast live on

Fox Sports and on free

to air’s ‘10 Bold’.

Tickets went on sale

to the general public on

Tuesday through Ticketek.

Sydney FC’s former Socceroo defender Alex Wilkinson celebrates with

Digging up the Facts

on Ingrown Toenails

Suffering morning heel pain or

pain after activity?

P: 9809 4464

10 Pope Street, Ryde

onepointhealth.com.au

Podiatry | Physiotherapy | Massage Therapy

By CLARE WEYMAR

Podiatrist

INGROWN toenails are

the most common cause of

painful nails.

The medical name for

ingrown toenails is onychocryptosis

and the first

signs include swollen skin

around the nail, tenderness

to touch, and formation of

granulation tissue, which

can progress to become infected

in some cases.

They are very common

among teenagers and

young adults because the

nails are thin and sharp and

the skin is very soft and

fragile.

What’s the Cause?

• Poor cutting technique

- cut too short or in wrong

shape

• Ripping your nails- leads

to jagged edges

• Poor footwear- tight

shoes and ill-fitting toe box.

•Abnormal nail shape

or nail fold- Broad nails,

curved nails and increased

skin bulk

• Odema, obesity and diabetes

• Trauma- kicking your toe

or ongoing trauma

• Family history

• Hyperhydrosis- sweaty

feet increases risk of infections

and skin is very soft

and easily irritated

• Poor foot hygiene

At Home Care

General rule of thumb is

don’t cut your nails down

the sides.

It is best to cut your toenails

regularly keeping the

Podiatrist Clare Weymar

sides high. They can be cut

straight across like a square

or with a slight curve taking

care not to cut too short or

down the sides.

Filing the toenail is a very

safe alternative and helps

to get rid of any rough

edges.

If pain presents in the

sides of your nails- begin

wearing open shoes using

antiseptics such as betadine,

hydrogen peroxide or

saline and applying a bandaid

to keep the area clean

from infection until pain disappears.

If the pain doesn’t subside

in a few days or gets

worse please see your GP

or podiatrist.

How Can a Podiatrist

Help?

Podiatrists are trained

specialists who see ingrown

toenails all day everyday.

They can assist in proper

cutting techniques and

have appropriate tools for

thickened or abnormal

shaped nails.

They can manage ingrown

toenails conservatively

through trimming the

nails and reducing pain by

removing the painful nail

section, which allows the

skin to settle.

A podiatrist may recommend

alternative treatments

including padding,

taping, packing and footwear

advice.

For ongoing or recurrent

onychocryptosis with constant

infections, podiatrists

can perform minor nail surgeries

as a more permanent

fix.

The most common procedure

is called a Partial

Nail Avulsion (PNA) to remove

the sides of the painful

nail and cauterize the

matrix (root of the nail).

Consult your podiatrist to

discuss further information

and advice on managing

your nails.

There are many contributing

factors that cause

ingrown toenails but please

don’t dig out your ingrown

nails.

Instead, try to keep the

sides high and your feet

clean.

It is important to seek

medical advice for painful

nails that don’t settle with

conservative care within a

few days.

If there is excessive inflammation

and infection it

is important to get antibiotics,

most commonly from

your GP.

to find out more about

Why two little

known laws

make road sense

THE State Government

has introduced two driving

laws which seem to

be heavy handed law

enforcement but actually

make a good deal of

sense.

The first is the offence of

beeping your car horn to

“wake up” or alert the driver

in front of you that the traffic

lights have turned green.

The ‘illegal use of a warning

device’ law carries a

steep penalty in Sydney of

$298 with more than 800

drivers being penalised for

it so far.

The second offence is

leaving a car door unlocked,

which carries a penalty of

$112.

In the first case, tooting a

horn is a dangerous practice

because it often prompts

the driver in front to react immediately

and instinctively,

potentially accelerating into

an unseen pedestrian.

It also diminishes the impact

of the horn as an emergency

warning device when

it is used often and unnecessarily

used as a response

motivated by impatience,

not danger.

In some European countries

it is regarded as aggressive

driver behaviour

and road rage, the electronic

equivalent to yelling a threat

from a car window.

Chief Inspector Phillip

Brooks, from the NSW Police

Traffic and Highway Patrol

put it this way.

“In a patrolling police

sense, police would intercept

that vehicle.”

“When we talk about distraction

more broadly, on a

mobile phone or otherwise,

it’s obviously a contributing

factor in serious and fatal

crashes.”

With police resources being

diverted to theft from vehicles

– especially in Ryde –

the second law also makes

sense.

Chief Inspector Brooks

said while fining drivers for

leaving a car unlocked was

often an unpopular fine, it

is a tool police had at their

disposal to deter thieves

and raise awareness among

motorists.

“Police on foot patrol will

see an unlocked vehicle and

respond to that as a deterrence

factor,” he said.

The potential media opportunity

that comes out of

that concern obviously creates

an awareness for the

benefit of others.”

Betty Ockerlander (pictured)

of McGrath Epping secured

a position in the Real Estate

Business (REB) Top 100 Agents

2019 ranking.

The list ranks real estate sales

agents across Australia according

to a range of metrics,

including the number of sales,

total sales volume and average

sales price, for the 2018 calendar

year.

Now in its eighth year, the

REB Top 100 Agents ranking is

an initiative of Real Estate Business,

the real estate authority

in Australia, and produced by

award-winning media business

Momentum Media.

The REB Top 100 Agents

2019 is the industry benchmark

for success in real estate sales

and an accolade all agents aspire

to,” said Tim Neary, editor

for REB.

“In this year’s ranking, the calibre

of entrants was exceptional,

with the total sales volume

across the top 100 in excess of

$13.9 billion.”

Colour My World staff celebrate the Children’s Centre’s 10th anniversary milestone.

Tenth anniversary milestone for

Colour My World Children’s Centre

NO dark sky or clouds were going to take away from the sun shining down on Colour

My World Children’s Centre as it celebrated its 10th Birthday last month.

A family owned business,

Robert and Diane Saba are very

proud to have reached this incredible

milestone.

Having three children of their

own, who are now young men,

their dream stems from over 20

years ago and it became reality

in April 2009 when the West

Ryde service opened its doors

for the very first time.

Their mission wasn’t to just

open a Preschool or a Childcare

centre but rather to create

a “home away from home for

the children of our community

while they learn”.

Colour My World had to be

another family for their families.

Both centres, located at West

Ryde and Ermington, have two

incredibly close knit teams creating

a family like atmosphere

amongst the services, which

flows through to the children

and right throughout the whole

centre.

When you visit the centre you

can’t help but feel the warmth

of the staff and the greetings

of the service which - if you are

lucky enough - you are greeted

with open arms by the owner

herself. Miss Diane embraces

everyone as part of the CMW

family, because she is very

passionate about achieving this

sense of family.

As is the Centre Director Miss

Tiffany Meisch who is very passionate

about where she works

and the industry itself.

The day included a welcomed

visit from Ryde MP Victor

Dominello who was most im

pressed with the service and

the people of Colour My World

so much so that he added a lit

tle colour to his own face, as he

praised the service for its qual

ity care within the community.

Colour My World stands ou

because of the authentic fam

ily atmosphere that you experi

ence - the moment you walk in

the front door.

If you would like to book a

tour, contact the service a

9804 0406 (West Ryde) or 9858

3606 (Ermington) or visit thei

website www.cmwchildren

scentre.com.au to join their free

waitlist.

They stand behind their motto

“Colour today….for a brighte

tomorrow.”

Fitting honour for pioneer

Ryde swim coach Ursula

By CHRIS KARAS

LEGENDARY swimming coach Ursula Carlile has been recognised for her

sterling contribution to sport in the City of Ryde.

The accomplished

mentor was honoured

at the recent

TWT Club Six/Ryde

Sports Foundation

Sports Star of the

Year Gala Dinner

at Ryde Eastwood

Leagues Club - earning

a special Contribution

to Sport award

for yeoman service

to local swimming.

Since 1980 the Ryde

Sports Foundation,

in conjunction with

The Weekly Times,

has been presenting

monthly and annual

awards to sportsmen

and women on

a pathway towards

Australian representation.

On occasion the

RSF have also presented

special

awards to the people

behind the success

of our local sports

stars and in 82 year

old Ursula they don’t

come better.

Ryde Carlile Swimming

Club life member

and valued Ryde

Sports Foundation

committeeman Terry

Wilson paid tribute to

the doyen of swimming

coaches when

presenting her with

the award on the

night.

“In a very special

and unique way Ursula

has played a

priceless role in the

lives of the many

swimmers and water

polo players who

have received the

RSF awards over the

last 49 years,” said

Terry.

“One of those

swimmers, Robert

Thorpe was a 2018-

19 Sports Star nominee

to continue the

long list of Carlile

coached swimmers

recognised over the

years.”

“At the same time

Ursula has forged

a global profile of

her own in the highly

competitive and

challenging world of

swimming,” he said.

The story of Ursula

Carlile’s contribution

to swimming locally

and globally is an impressive

one indeed.

Back in 1960 Ursula,

along with her

husband Forbes,

was appointed to the

Australian Olympic

swimming coaching

team as Sports Science

advisers for the

Rome Olympics.

Ursula was the

world leader in taking

a scientific approach

to sports performance.

In 1964, Ursula and

Forbes were again

making a global

splash when they

were appointed as

the joint coaches of

the Dutch swimming

team for the Tokyo

Olympics – this was

the beginning of a

long and close relationship

between

Australian and Dutch

swimming.

1972 was the highlight

of Ursula’s

coaching career, being

chosen as Australia’s

first women

Olympic swimming

coach for the Munich

Olympic Games.

And there was no

doubting why she

was with five of her

own swimmers from

the Ryde club in the

Australian squad –

including swimmers

who became household

names in Australian

Sport in the

great Shane Gould,

Karen Moras, Jenny

Turrell, and Gail Neill.

Gould was the star

of those Olympic

Games at the age of

15 – winning three

gold medals, all in

world record time.

In 1971 she held the

world record in every

female freestyle

event from 100m to

1500 metres.

But it is not only

these global achievements

as a swimming

coach that make Ursula

a perfect candidate

for a Contribution

to Sport award.

“Ursula is truly a

local legend,” says

Terry.

“In 1961 when Ryde

Council built the

original Ryde Swimming

Centre, Ursula

and Forbes became

its first coaches,” he

revealed. “Can you

believe they originally

drove and picked

up their swimmers

in the squad each

morning. They rented

a house not far from

Ryde Pool in Cross

Steet where Ursula

still lives,” reflected

Terry.

They then built

Sydney’s first indoor

heated learnto-swim

centre in

the backyard – without

Council approval

and without the

knowledge of the

home owners who

were overseas. That

Learn-to-swim centre

remains in operation

(with many

reconstructions) and

is the birthplace of

Australia’s largest

swimming organisation,

Carlile Swimming.

“It is Ursula’s long

commitment to this

centre which impresses

me the

most,” said Terry.

The many thousands

of young Ryde

children who have

learnt to swim at this

centre are a contribution

to local sport

that can’t be quantified.

Many of those

swimmers have progressed

to being the

parents and grandparents

of Carlile

taught swimmers. In

the early days many

were taught by Ursula.

In recent times the

teachers have been

a long list of young

Ryde coaches who

found Carlile Swimming

a rewarding

career starter under

Ursula’s guidance.

“In 1961, when

the Ryde Pool was

opened, the Ryde

Mayor of the time

started the Ryde

Swimming Club. Ursula

has been on

the committee of

that club continuously

until today with

many years as its

Head Coach. Until

2019 she has been

the starter at weekly

club races. She still

starts club races

with diving practice,

off the blocks, for the

5 and 6 year olds.

Terry said that if

you wanted to cross

paths with Ursula

today, it wasn’t difficult.

“Most mornings

you’ll find her at

Next Generation in

the gym, often on

the rowing machine;

most days at the

pool in the backyard

at Cross Street; most

afternoons at swimming

squads at Ryde

Pool and most Friday

nights at Ryde Club

Races,” he added.

Ryde Sports Foundation Contribution to Sport Award recipients Ursula

Carlile and TWT Managing Editor John F. Booth AM.

RSF Contribution to

Sport Award for our JB

THE WEEKLY TIMES Managing Editor John F Booth AM had double

reason to celebrate earlier this month after reaching a significant career

milestone.

Our JB chalked up 40

years at the helm of Australia’s

most awarded

independent community

newspaper on May

1 - then two days later

received a special Contribution

to Sport award

from the Ryde Sports

Foundation that recognised

his tremendous

support of local sport

over the past four decades.

It was a proud moment

and thoroughly

deserved honour for JB

who has helped launch

Tigers Blitz Panther Pets!

Dynamic Benji & Robbie Plus

Luke send Ivan’s kids packing

Born again local heroes Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah combined with rising star Luke Brooks

to sensationally thrash the PantherPets in the Bananaland Magic Round last Friday night.

By the one eyed Tiger

Try! Try! Try! Try! Try! The Tigers celebrate five tries in almost as many minutes

against Ivan Cleary’s Penrith PantherPets in Bananaland at the Magic Round Gala

weekend.

The Tigeriffic Trio

weaved their magic

and inspired the

whole team to pull

more than rabbits

out of the hat as

they spanked Ivan’s

kids and sent them

back to their foot

of the mountains

kindergarten with

their tails firmly between

their legs.

The Tigers were

the talk of the Magic

Round weekend

scoring four rapid

fire tries in six

opening minutes

to bedazzle Ivan’s

kids.

Skipper Moses

Mbye headed the

list followed by

Luke Brooks then

Esarn Masters and

Corey Thompson.

Rob Jennings followed

at the seventeenth

minute

with Esarn galloping

over again in

the second half for

a final scoreline of

30-4 at final whistle

also having added

another six points

from three over the

little black dot..

By that time the

big hearted Tigers

had eased up a

little feeling sorry

for their former

part-time coach

who had departed

home for nappy

change.

This Friday the

Tigers venture

south of the border

to Mexico city to

consolidate their

possie on the NRL

premiership ladder

as they focus

on grand final honours.

See ya there.

Benji Marshall was at his brilliant best

as he weaved his magic at last Friday’s

Magic Round in Brisbane.
