LIONESS

Dalby’s Zimmorlei Farquharson

was the Lions’ first pick, and

the eighth overall, in the 2020

AFLW draft held on Tuesday,

DEB’S $300 REGO REBATE

WILL DRIVE OUR RECOVERY

Every Queenslander who owns a

registered car will receive a $300

Rego Rebate before Christmas if

the LNP wins the state election on

October 31.

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said the

Rego Rebate would inject $1.15 billion into

Queensland’s economy as part of her plan to

create jobs and lead the state out of recession.

“This is a stimulus payment to give

Queensland’s economy a Christmas kickstart,”

Ms Frecklington said.

The LNP’s Rego Rebate will put $300 straight

into the bank accounts of Queensland drivers.

“Queensland has had the worst

unemployment in the nation for the last four

years and our small businesses are on their

knees.

“An LNP Government will take direct action to

stimulate the economy and create new jobs.

The LNP’s $300 Rego Rebate will give

Queenslanders more cash to spend this

Christmas, delivering a $1.15 billion boost

for struggling shops, cafes and other small

businesses.

“Labor has smashed drivers with a massive

$120 rego hike, but the LNP will give $300

back to drivers.

The LNP’s Rego Rebate will help to drive

Queensland’s economic recovery.

“I’m asking Queenslanders to go out and

spend their $300.

“Please spend it on your family, spend it

with local businesses, spend it to make your

Christmas better. Your spending will save

Queensland jobs.”

Queenslanders with a registered car on 1

November 2020 will get the LNP’s $300 Rego

Rebate.

The rebate will be payable on every registered

car, so two-car households will get $600.

Around 3.8 million cars will be covered by the

Rego Rebate.

And drivers won’t have to wait until rego

renewal time to claim their cash.

The rebate will be paid in December through

the Federal Government’s Services Australia

online portal, under an agreement with

Government Services Minister Stuart Roberts.

The same payment system has been used

by the ACT and Victorian governments to

distribute COVID stimulus payments.

LNP Shadow Treasurer and Deputy Leader

Tim Mander said the Palaszczuk Labor

Government had hiked rego by 20% since

2015 – driving up rego bills by up to $120 a

year.

“Labor have targeted drivers with inflationbusting

rego increases year after year,” Mr

Mander said.

“Drivers have used their car less because of

COVID restrictions, so it’s only fair that they

pay less rego this year.”

Trucks, car dealerships and car rental firms

will not qualify for the rebate.

The $300 Rego Rebate follows the LNP’s

pledge to introduce free off-peak rail travel

for seniors across the South-East’s CityRail

network.

New students will also be eligible for $500

public transport vouchers.

“An LNP Government will make travel cheaper

for drivers, for seniors and for students,” Ms

Frecklington.

The LNP’s economic plan will cut the cost of

living for Queenslanders and put more “I want

Queenslanders to go out and spend their

$300 Rego Rebate before Christmas.

“Let’s get this money into our economy and

supporting Queensland jobs.

“Only the LNP has a plan to stimulate the

economy, create secure jobs and lead

Queensland out of recession.

“Only an LNP Government will get Queensland

working again.”

Imagine a world without suicide.

DALBY FOOTBALLER

MAKING HER WAY TO THE

LION’S DEN

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Sitting in front of the television

watching the AFL woman's draft,

it was an anxious but short wait

for a Dalby teenager before she

heard her name called and her 10-

year dream come true.

Zimmorlei Farquharson (pictured below), was

the Lions' first pick, and the eighth overall,

in the 2020 AFLW draft held on Tuesday,

October 6.

The 18-year-old comes to the Lions from the

Brisbane Lions Academy where she has been

a member now for four seasons, also joining

the NAB AFLW National Academy for the past

two seasons.

"I believed in myself that I could make it this

far," she said.

"I had my ups and downs, but I finally achieved

what I thought I could when I was younger.

"I was always hopeful that the Brisbane Lions

would pick me. I didn't want to go to any

other team."

Although she is looking forward to the

journey ahead, the young star credits much

of her success to the Dalby Swans where

everything started.

"They're my roots, aspirations and beliefs of

how I am as a footballer," she said.

"They're the ones that built me to who I am

today."

Zimmorlei Farquharson has grown to become

one of the most exciting young talents to

progress through the ranks and has been on

the Lion’s radar for quite some time.

Lions Women chief executive Breeanna Brock

said she is the final piece of the puzzle for the

AFL team.

"I remember getting a phone call in a

previous role … to say, 'Is it okay if we play a

13-year-old in a women's grand final out here

in Toowoomba?'" Ms Brock said.

"Everybody was onto us about this fantastic

kid.

"She's been the youngest one that's come

through [the academy], primarily because

she is so talented.

"She just got an ability to win the footy, be in

the right spot at the right time and that will

certainly be a big asset for us."

The Lions also recognised Farquharson's

effective goal-scoring at half-forward, and

she can shift to the wing and find space to

carry the ball.

She is excellent overhead, has length and

power in her kicking, and defensive speed to

get after opponents.

Farquharson also represented Queensland

in the NAB AFLW U18s in 2018 and 2019 and

played in the QAFLW Grand Final for eventual

Premiership winners, the Yeronga Devils.

Lions Senior Coach Craig Starcevich said she

is an athletic and skilful player who the team

think can play in a few positions.

"She's had an outstanding last month as a key

player in Yeronga's charge to the QAFLW flag,

and again on the weekend as the Lions' best

against the Suns in the Academy game," he

said.

"We think her athleticism and versatility will

be real assets for our team."

From the country to the big stage, the

18-year-old is now a trailblazer for other

young sportswomen.

Coming from the country to the nation's big

stage, the teenager hopes that playing in the

AFLW will encourage other girls to peruse

their sporting dreams.

"I'm not sure if I will make an impact in the

AFLW, but I hope I will inspire other girls from

smaller regions to try to get to the level that I

have accomplished," Farquharson said.

"I want girls from those small towns to

continue with their sport even though it

doesn't look huge where they are.

"If they push on, they can get to the big

leagues in Brisbane, the Gold Coast or

interstate."

The 2021 NAB AFLW Season will begin week

commencing February 1, with final details of

the competition format still to be announced.

Pre-season training will begin in November.

SPEED ZONES TO BE

PAINTED ON THE WARREGO

HIGHWAY

Painting the Speed Zones on the Warrego Highway will become a

reality under an LNP Government.

Ann Leahy Member for Warrego has secured a $50 000 commitment to paint the speed zones

on the road surface, along the Warrego Highway

There are frequent speed zone changes along the Warrego Highway, for instance some areas

are 110km/h, some 100km/h.

Some towns like Morven are 50km/h, Mitchell and Roma 60km/h with school zones 40km/h,

Drillham 70km/h and Yuleba and Jondaryan 80km/h, and two rail crossings between Chinchilla

and Miles reduced to 80km/h.”

“Just over the border in New South Wales speed zones are painted on the road so you can’t

miss the advice about the speed zone you are travelling in.

“Painting the speed zone on the road is a simple and cost effective way to inform road users of

the speed zones which they are entering or leaving.

“With many signs lost, damaged or missed, this means motorists can check their speed and

ensure they are driving within the speed limit as the zones change,” Ms Leahy said.

AUSTRALIA DAY AWARD NOMINATIONS

CLOSING SOON!

Nominate a community champion!

Residents are reminded to

get in quick and nominate an

outstanding community member

with nominations for the region’s

most prestigious awards closing

at the end of this month.

Western Downs Regional Council’s Australia

Day Awards recognise local and regional

achievers across several categories including

volunteering, creative arts, community

organisations and sporting.

Western Downs Regional Council Mayor Paul

McVeigh said the 2021 Awards provided a

prime opportunity to celebrate those who

have continued to go above and beyond to

make the Western Downs a great place to

live, work and play, despite the challenges

faced this year.

2020 has been a year of unpredictable

events and as a result we’ve seen just how

strong the Aussie spirit is in the Western

Downs community,” Cr McVeigh said.

There have been countless community

members and groups who have continued

to work hard and serve our region through

the tough times and I believe it’s particularly

important now for us to acknowledge those

efforts.

“It’s these dedicated residents who

continuously build on the active vibrant

communities that make up the Western

Downs region and this awards program

provides us with a unique opportunity to

publicly acknowledge and celebrate these

incredible people.“

2020 Regional Citizen of the Year Michael

Wood said he was honoured to win the

award for his involvement in the Jandowae

community and wider region.

“It was a great honour to win the Regional

Citizen of the Year Award at this year’s

Australia Day celebration, I can think of

a number of people in my town who are

deserving of the award so to be recognised

for my work is unbelievable,” Mr Wood said.

“I have a lot of great memories from growing

up in Jandowae and if people don’t get

involved and keep things going, then there

Advertise in The Crossing NOW - Call 0411 896 004

won’t be anything for anyone to do, and I just

want my kids to grow up enjoying the small

country town like I did.

“Although you don’t do the work to win

awards, knowing your efforts aren’t going

unnoticed is a great thing and gives you

some extra motivation to keep going so even

just to be nominated for an award means a

lot and the Australia Day Awards provide an

opportunity to do that.”

2020 Young Citizen of the Year Jenaya

Low said it was important to recognise

younger residents for their contribution to

the community and she felt humbled to be

recognised for her efforts.

“It meant a lot to win the Young Citizen of

the Year Award, a lot of people in the Dalby

community and Western Downs region do a

lot of hard work so I felt really humbled being

given the opportunity to win that award,”

Miss Low said.

“I think it’s very important to hold the Australia

Day Awards, there are lot of hard-working

people in our region who go unrecognised

but by having these awards, those people are

recognised for everything they do and shown

the appreciation they deserve.

“I think it’s important for the younger

community to be recognised because they

are the future generation and how we set

ourselves up now is how we’ll develop into

the future so just to be recognised for what

you do now is more likely to have positive

benefits into the future.”

Nominations are open until midnight

Saturday, 31 October 2020 with the winners

to be publicly announced when they receive

their awards at the annual Australia Day

events in our local communities.

Award Categories:

• Citizen of the Year

• Young Citizen of the Year

• Local Community Organisation

Achievement Award

• Local Creative Arts Award

• Local Sports Award

• Local Volunteer of the Year

KAP’s Gurnett says ‘Quadbikes almost now

unaffordable for most farmers’

Canberra and Brisbane based

‘ivory tower’ bureaucrats have

struck again and this time it

is farmers and quadbikes that

are suffering and the Katter’s

Australian Party has agreed to

push for change during the State

election.

KAP candidate for Warrego, Rick Gurnett,

says new quadbike prices have doubled to

$16,000 because of Federal Government

regulations insisting the new quads have to

be fitted with protective roll bars.

In a joint Statement with KAP Leader and

Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter, Mr

Gurnett and Mr Katter said the KAP will press

both major parties to join the KAP to reverse

the decision post the October 31 poll.

The Canberra and Brisbane bureaucrats

have struck again and it is the farmers who

have to pay,” Mr Gurnett said. “The decision

may have been made in Canberra via Federal

legislation, but the State Labor Government

said and did very little to prevent it.

These new roll bars will double the price of

quad bikes and will drive farmers and graziers

back to motor bikes and horses which can be

even more dangerous.

“Quad bikes can be dangerous but it is farmers

not using their seat belts which is the real

problem and these roll bars are impractical,

unaffordable and not the solution.

“I am being told that local Australian based

manufacturers are being squeezed out of the

market because Chinese made quad bikes

that come fitted with roll bars have stolen a

jump on the market simply because of the

price.

“Farmers are furious out there.”

Mr Katter said the KAP had spoken to

hundreds of farmers who complained that

the quad bikes with roll bars were impractical

in going through dense bushland because of

their extended height and the roll bars had

reduced what farmers could carry on their

quads.

“This is typical of the major parties which

have no feel for the bush and no feel for the

plight of farmers,” Mr Katter said.

They have introduced these changes

with little or no consultation and from the

comfort of their ivory towers in Canberra and

Brisbane.”

MILLION

Maranoa MP David Littleproud

has secured over $9.4 million

towards community building

projects in the Western Downs

to stimulate the local economy

and boost regional tourism,

as part the Coalition Federal

Government’s

Economic

Recovery Plan for Australia.

“I’m proud to see our regional communities

getting their fair share in 2020-21 Budget,

with funding to flow to priority community

building and local infrastructure projects,

supporting the local economy at the time it

is needed most,” Mr Littleproud said.

The Western Downs will benefit from

$9,401,922 through extensions to the

Building Better Regions Fund and the Drought

recovery by supporting local councils and

community groups in Maranoa to deliver the

projects that matter most to them, to boost

local jobs and help communities bounce

back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are continuing support for the Building

Better Regions Fund with $200 million

towards a fifth round, including $100 million

dedicated to tourism-related infrastructure

supporting the regions to recover from

COVID-19.”

“Projects like the redevelopment of the

Dalby Cultural Precinct, supported by $7.05

million through the BBRF, will help to build

community spirit and drive important

economic and tourism benefits for the

Western Downs.”

“BBRF will also support Upgrades to the Tara

Lagoon Parklands, Dalby’s Delicious and

Delightful Country Concert and the Creating

Chinchilla Connections project.

“Maranoa communities will continue to

benefit from the $335.5 million Drought

Communities Program Extension, with local

infrastructure projects and drought related

activities nearing completion across the

electorate.”

LNP PLAN

TO RESTORE

CHINCHILLA

MATERNITY

SERVICES

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Local maternity services in Chinchilla

and Theodore could soon return with

the LNP unveiling that’s their plan if

elected on October 31.

As part of a major investment in better health

services across Queensland, the LNP will trial ondemand

birthing services with a new dedicated

local team.

Services at Chinchilla haven’t been offered to local

mums for more than two years after they were

closed down by the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

Local LNP MP for Callide Colin Boyce said the closing

of the birthing facilities was a big problem Chinchilla

was facing.

The restoration of maternity services at Chinchilla

and Theodore is important for local communities,”

he said.

The only way to restore regional health services is

by getting rid of the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

“Labor have no idea how important maternity

services are to regional families – it’s why they’ve cut

them.

“We need to invest in regional health services

otherwise families will leave town.

“It’s clear that only the LNP has an economic plan for

regional Queensland.”

LNP Leader said Deb Frecklington said it was

important regional families were offered the

chance to have better local health services in their

community.

“I was born in a regional hospital and I understand

how crucial maternity services are to families,” Ms

Frecklington said.

“Providing better regional health services closer

to home is not only good for local families but

encourages more people to live in rural and regional

Queensland.

The LNP’s plan will offer local birthing services to

low-risk pregnancies that can be safely undertaken

at the Chinchilla and Theodore Hospitals.

“It will help local mums have their babies as close to

home as they can.

The Palaszczuk Labor Government’s record is

shutting down maternity services in the bush.

“Since 2001, Labor has closed maternity services in

26 rural and regional communities.

“Now, Labor has no budget and no economic plan

for regional Queensland.

“Mums in the bush deserve the same healthcare as

mums in Brisbane.

“Queenslanders should have access to a world-class

public health system no matter where they live and

that’s what an LNP Government will deliver.”

The LNP’s plan for Chinchilla and Theodore is

based on a similar model that has operated out of

Goondiwindi.

It will be implemented through a co-ordinated

clinical team by Darling Downs and Central

Queensland Hospital and Health Services.

An LNP Government would appoint an on-demand

service coordination team for Chinchilla and

Theodore as an initial 12-month trial.

Hospital planning at a local level allows the clinical

team (rural generalist and nurse/midwife) to scale

up clinical resources when they know they have a

scheduled birth.

The trial will involve a local team of additional

registered nurses / midwives. It includes upskilling

existing staff, a shared rural generalist and local

incentives to recruit and retain staff.

It will cost $1.14 million for the first 12 months and

utilise a midwifery continuity of care model.

If successful, the program could be rolled out to

restore other maternity services in regional places

like Mossman as well.

BUYING LOCAL SOON TO BE EASIER

THAN EVER WITH NEW PLATFORM

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Western Downs residents will

soon be able to access all items

offered by local businesses in

one place with the help of a new

social media platform.

In an attempt to back local business and

stimulate the economy the Western Downs

Regional Council has awarded Chinchilla

Community Commerce and Industry Inc.

funding under its $50 million COVID-19

Recovery Package to establish a 'one stop

shop' for residents to access local goods

and services, with the first component

being a Facebook page and group.

Western Downs Regional Council Mayor

Paul McVeigh said the project was about

boosting local business by creating

a centralised place for residents and

businesses to source local goods and

services.

"It's never been more important to back

our local businesses and shop locally as

we continue to deal with the challenges

created by the pandemic," Cr McVeigh said.

"Our Recovery Package is designed to

do just that - stimulate the economy and

create strong outcomes for our region's

Police have released vision of two people

breaking into a Miles service station in the early

hours of the morning on October 6.

On the Tuesday night a grey Hyundai Sonata was stolen from a

Daisy Street residence.

Two men in the vehicle were recorded on CCTV breaking into the

service station on McNulty Street around 1.45am.

One of the men smashed the front glass door then both men stole

cigarettes and soft drinks from the store.

The men were both wearing hoodies, long pants and face masks,

with one wearing work boots and the other Nike shoes.

The Hyundai was located on Colamba Street Miles around 11am

on October 6.

The same fuel station was targeted by offenders earlier this year

future, and that is why we included a buy

local platform as part of this package.

"Earlier this year Council requested

expressions of interests from the local

Chambers of Commerce to develop

and manage a buy local platform, with

Chinchilla Community Commerce and

Industry Inc. subsequently selected to

deliver this project for the community.

"Now it's exciting to announce the Buy

Western Downs Facebook page and group

are live, and I encourage all community

members and businesses within the

region to head online and be a part of this

initiative.

“We ultimately want to make it as simple as

possible for residents to spend in our towns

by creating an online community, while

throwing support behind out fantastic

local traders."

Chinchilla Community Commerce and

Industry Inc. Manager Robyn Haig said the

Facebook community was the first step in

the project, with a comprehensive online

platform to follow.

“This project is about linking the community

with the various local businesses across the

Western Downs which offer amazing goods

and services and keep locals employed,”

Mrs Haig said.

The platform is only open to businesses

on the Western Downs and we welcome

all residents to join the Facebook group so

we can start recommending our great local

businesses to one another.

“Local businesses are working so hard

to continue to provide services to their

customers during these difficult times with

many increasing their online presence and

introducing new services, but there are still

some ‘hidden gems’ we want to help link

with the community.

"A complementary website is also in its

final stages of development and once live,

will go on to provide an online directory

of businesses operating in the Western

Downs.

"The Buy Western Downs website will

include listings by location within the

Western Downs along with search feature

to enable users to find businesses across

the whole region. Businesses will be able

to request their business details to be

added to the listing through a form on the

website.

“Anyone interested in having their business

featured on the Buy Western Downs

Facebook Page can make the request to

the page through Facebook Messenger."

ANNUAL SOCIAL BIKE RIDE PASSES THROUGH THE WESTERN DOWNS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

Australian shearer's bicycles came into use in the late 1890s, and it was common

for shearers to ride their bikes from shed to shed as they worked across the

country during shearing season.

It was the most efficient transportation, and even though it may not be today, for one group of riders, it's

that same passion for transportation and appreciation for the history that keeps them riding.

Last week, 20 riders from across Australia cycled their way through the Western Downs covering almost

700km over six days as they took part in the Shearers Ride 2020 which is hosted by Lyle Paull.

"We rode from Meandarra to Glenmorgan, then to Myall Park," he said.

"We then cut back through Condamine and from there zig-zagged through Dulacca through to Possum

Park after that.

"We then cut back to Condamine before finishing up in Meandarra."

The Shearers Ride began in 2014 and is an annual event for friends and people with a similar interest who

want the opportunity to get the old steel single speed, 2/3 speed internally geared bicycles out for a ride.

"I like old things, and I had a lot of old motorbikes from the '40s and '50s and enjoy going back in time," Mr

Paull said. "I've also always ridden to try and keep fit on modern bicycles.

"Then when you look back at the history from the 1890s to the 1920s there is a lot of untold history."

Australian shearer's bicycles that came into use in the late 1890s were more than a form of efficient

transportation.

When it poured hard with rain, and the sheep were too wet to shear, work-horse bicycles became racing

bikes, on other days races for shearers were organised events at local racetracks.

The rim of one dispirited shearer's bicycle became a place for him to scratch his epitaph.

Traversing vast distances on dusty outback tracks over thousands of kilometres, sometimes across more

than one state was the norm for many shearers.

For others, the bicycle was the means to get to the shearing shed from the nearest home and back each

day.

"If you research shearers on bicycles in the prospect areas in the Western Australia and New South Wales

goldfields they would have ridden huge miles which is not what we did," Mr Paull said.

"We are averaging 70km's a day where they would be doing a few hundred kilometres a day."

With bikes ranging from 1900 to 1960 and no modern mountain bike or gravel bikes, Mr Paull said the ride

was a little challenging especially with the heat.

"Normally it's in April or May, but because of all the COVID stuff, this ride was take two for this year. So, it is

a bit hot," he said.

"It's still quite a pleasant country though, and we ride although the back roads, so it's a pretty safe ride.

"The terrain is good with not too many hills which is why we picked these sorts of places.

"I'm over 50, and we have someone who is 74 years old, so it's not the easiest thing for us to do, but we do

have a backup car.

"Therefore, some of them can hop in it if they are feeling a bit tired."

Overall Mr Paull said everyone did a good job and that he hopes the event can return in 2021.

LETTERS, COMMENT & ANNOUNCEMENTS

DETRIMENTAL TO OUR ENTIRE SOCIETY

In every election the subject is raised of

rural residents feeling abandoned by their

representatives.

There is a strong perception in regional and

remote areas that we are regarded as second

class citizens and as such are only entitled to

second rate services.

This perception is fostered by a very real and

inherent unfairness in the way many services

operate.

Energy prices for example. The coal used to

generate electricity is all dug in rural areas by

rural based workers.

The copper for the transmission lines is all

produced in remote areas and the timber

poles to carry the lines are all cut in the bush

by hard working rural people.

Do we get to participate in market

competition which reduces electricity costs?

Not a chance, that’s only for the cities.

Now there is an election due, the LNP

is promising to open up the market to

competition and thereby reduce prices.

Firstly, this promise will likely evaporate postelection

and secondly, if it can be done at the

stroke of a pen, why wasn’t it done ten years

ago?

Fuel prices in regional areas are quite

frequently thirty cents a litre higher than

Brisbane.

There is absolutely no justification for this and

As the custodians of a country monitors its

downfall, the three-wise monkeys appear in a

cloud of smoke. While many people lay their

palms outright, to collect the gold of selfgratification.

Australia, a lost island sold off to

the highest bidder before the next generation

are born. There are no laws to bind or guide

a homeland as the Judas’s bend and break

the decrees of a nation at will, only to gum

them back together again. Money stipulates

the path we take for certain projects, as they

are shuffled around the house like a stacked

deck of cards. Where is the outback’s share of

the loot, for contracting and bringing back

employment in country towns? Once might

ask what happened to the agreements to

protect the land? Broken are the first words

that should enter one’s head, as the ancient

handshake of honour is forgotten. It’s the

poor that are suffering to put food on the

tables, or pay the miles of outstanding bill. It’s

will be the toss of a coin that will depict an

outcome for the gullible witness to watch.

There will not be any constitutional rights to

question or even rebel against the onslaught

of dishonesties held within parliament

privilege sessions. Condemned only to

read the articles of anation’s bulletins within

the media, which I believe are falsified and

fashioned with propaganda in our democratic

country. Feeding on the scraps at the local

piggeries you would find a far more ethical

when it is challenged, the answer is always

freight charges. Nonsense.

When a B-Double can carry 40 thousand

litres a load, that equates to 12 thousand

dollars a load for a 2-hour run from Brisbane

to Toowoomba.

Nobody gets paid those rates, if they were, I’d

buy a fuel tanker.

Rural people are being ripped off and who

benefits?

The bulk of the fuel price is Government

taxes, the same Government that looks the

other way whenever the subject is raised.

Health services is another area where rural

people are openly discriminated against.

No-one expects the same level of service in

remote areas as you would in the cities and

some sections of the service have improved

dramatically in recent times. E.g. Telehealth.

Overall however, it is obvious that we are still

regarded as second class citizens.

Take maternity services in Chinchilla for

example.

In an area that services five thousand people

why can you not give birth in your own

regional hospital?

This has been kicked around as a political

football for years and used as a photo

opportunity for everyone in Government,

all the while women continue to risk their

lives on long road trips which are totally

conversation. While the candidates live in

hope, the flies will go unnoticed seeming to

squabble and replicate as they are locked

into stutter of reoccurrence. I do believe

that there wouldn’t be any intelligence or

ethics found within the walls of this piranha,

backbiting fishbowl.

Not a whisper to condemnation about the

fundamental beliefs held, by the silver spoon

brigade. Placed into power only to twist

and manipulate the truth, to pacify the poor

to feed the wealthy. This lodge of cobras,

are quick on the uptake taught young to

acknowledge the laws of a nation. By placing

their best feet forward, they stage their next

play only to connive and control the public.

As they hang their hats or coats on a stand of

value, they will be dammed sure they will not

make the mistake of others by falling short.

For an hour or two they dither and dally, only

to leave a public galley, not making sense at

all. They represent a Nation, receive payment

of the hundreds only to leave most of us

dumbfounded without translation! Society

does not question, they do not strike, it’s

all about the whinging and whining to the

politicians’ delight.

The backbone of the land meant to feed

a nation, forgotten or sold out are the

preparers of the soil as they start to flounder.

Reassigned to make other countries stronger

they watch and wither as employment

unnecessary.

There is new medication available to

Ambulance Services which dramatically

improves outcomes for stroke victims if

admitted expediently.

This drug is not issued to Ambulance Services

outside the South East region.

Why is your mother’s life considered more

valuable if she lives in Surfers Paradise than if

she lives in Stonehenge?

Roads are another constant reminder of rural

versus city discrimination.

Primary production is a massive cornerstone

of our state’s economy, yet all that valuable

product is being hauled out over roads that

haven’t seen a grader in years.

Running costs escalate due to countless

blown tyres and broken suspensions. All

while the radio informs us about another

billion dollars for the M1 or the Cross-River

Rail.

This is just a few of the issues that must be

addressed, as this growing sense of unfairness

helps to foster a them and us attitude which

is damaging to us all as a community and

detrimental to our entire society.

J.K.Courte

Miles

THE ECHO OF SILENCE

flourishes overseas. Australia will begin to

show the severe signs of becoming a third

world country while politicians carry home,

another upgraded paycheque. From country

into City the children will flow, as they prosper

into the high fluting life. Overseas they will

travel, when competent enough leaving a

country to rack and ruin. As a farmer’s land is

swallowed up with greed, it will be the farmer

who puts the last straw, on the camel’s back

to break!

As with only mining left to lead a homeland,

the deprived will have no say in what

transpires. Forced into a corner there will

be no choice left, disillusionment will follow

as Australia just mightbecome the next Iraq.

Although the embattled people might unite

the true meaning of walking in someone

else’s footsteps, will ring true. While standing

in front of a mirror, comprehension will come

to light. Left as a reminder of the blood sweat

and tears that were once used to protect

a nation are now a plight. A soldier’s path

people of a native land might appreciate

more, being drawn together to protect the

lands of the forefathers just could unite

thedivided into a country once more.

An recent Italian immigrant to New York

wanted a job, but the foreman won’t hire

him until he passes a little math test.

”Here’s your first question,” the foreman

said. “Without using numbers, represent

the number 9.”

”Without numbers?” the Italian says, “Dat is

easy.” And he proceeds to draw three trees.

”What’s this?” the boss asks.

”Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and

tree make nine,” says the Italian.

”Fair enough,” says the boss. “Here’s your

second question. Use the same rules, but

this time the number is 99.

The Italian stares into space for a while,

then picks up the picture that he has just

drawn and makes a smudge on each tree.

“Here you go.

The boss scratches his head and says,

“How on earth do you get that to represent

99?”

”Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it’s dirty

tree, and dirty tree, and dirty tree. Dat is

99.”

”All right, last question. Same rules again,

but represent the number 100.

The Italian man stares into space some

more, then he picks up the picture again

and makes a little mark at the base of each

tree and says, “Here you go. One hundred.”

The boss looks at the attempt. “You must

be nuts if you think that represents a

hundred!”

The Italian leans

forward and

points to the

marks at the

base of each

tree and says, “A

little dog came

along and crap

by each tree.

So now you got

dirty tree and a

turd, dirty tree

and a turd, and

dirty tree and a

turd, dat make

one hundred. So,

when I start?”

REMARKABLE DISPLAY OF PINK TO DRIVE HOME

IMPORTANT REMINDER TO EVERYONE

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

The streets of Miles continue to

get pinker and pinker as the days

of October go by and the latest

display of pink is impressive,

especially from the sky.

The Miles Health Service have pinked up

their grounds with three giant pink ribbons

painted on their grass to raise awareness of

breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most commonly

diagnosed cancer for Australian women, with

one-in-seven women diagnosed with breast

cancer.

Knowing this statistic, BreastScreen

Queensland Toowoomba Service Health

Promotion Officer Alexandra Robbins-Hill

was hoping that the display would serve as a

reminder for those women who are due for a

screening to book an appointment.

“Having a breast screen can’t stop a woman

from developing breast cancer, but it can

improve the chance of the disease being

detected early when there are increased

treatment options,” Ms Robbins-Hill said.

“Early detection provides an opportunity for

early treatment, which can reduce the length

and severity of illness, and save lives.”

BreastScreen Queensland recommends

women aged between 50 and 74 years have a

breast screen every two years and is available

in Toowoomba for local residents.

A doctor’s referral is not needed to access the

breast screening service, but due to COVID,

the organisation asks the client to assist them

in keeping everyone safe by following a few

simple steps.

“We kindly ask our clients to bring their

pen to complete the paperwork, and call

to reschedule their appointment if they are

feeling unwell with flu-like symptoms,” Ms

Robbin-Hill said.

“We also ask our clients to not arrive in

advance for their appointment as we need to

minimise the number of people in the clinic

waiting areas.

“For this reason, we also ask where possible

that our clients do not bring anyone with

them to their appointment.”

Alongside the Toowoomba clinic, the service’s

state-of-the-art breast screening vans also

travel throughout the Darling Downs.

To find out where the van is throughout the

year, to schedule an appointment or to find

out more information, residents can phone

13 20 50 or visit www.breastscreen.qld.gov.

WESTERN DOWNS

INFRASTRUCTURE

SECURES $74M IN BUDGET

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

$74.1 million will spend on infrastructure investments

in the Western Downs after Maranoa MP David

Littleproud secured the funds in the 2020-21 Budget,

as part the Coalition Federal Government’s Economic

Recovery Plan for Australia.

He said that he was proud to see our regional communities getting their

fair share in this budget, with the funding to flow to major infrastructure

projects, to build our economy and secure Maranoa’s future.

The Government’s record $110 billion transport infrastructure program

will support local jobs and businesses at the time it is needed most.

The Western Downs Regional Council will receive $24.1 million this

financial year to build shovel-ready local priorities, through extensions

to the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, Roads to

Recovery Program and the Financial Assistance Grants,” Mr Littleproud

said.

“Improving road safety is a core priority for the Government and that’s

why we’re investing an additional $1 billion towards the Local Roads

and Community Infrastructure Program, which all Maranoa Councils will

benefit from.

“This additional funding will drive community-led recovery by

empowering local governments to deliver priority roads and community

infrastructure to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19

pandemic.

“Western Downs residents will also benefit from $50 million towards

upgrades of the Warrego Highway between Oakey and Miles; this

includes the Chinchilla Rail Crossing Upgrade project.”

After suffering through

the 2011-2012 floods and

drought, one Western

Downs tennis has been

trying to rebuild their club

for the past decade.

However, a tennis revival is about to

be served up after the Warra Tennis

Club was successful in securing a

$17,365 grant from Queensland

Government’s Active Restart

Infrastructure Recovery Fund.

The club is now able to upgrade

their switchboard, install lights on

their tennis courts and put in airconditioning

into their clubhouse.

Club president Elissa Lucas said

it has been hard for the club to

get back up and running after

the two natural disasters, but this

investment means the club can get

back up and running and Warra will

have something that can bring them

together.

“It means everything for us,

because most of our members are

TENNIS CLUB SERVES THE COMMUNITY

in the agriculture industry, so they

generally work daylight hours,”

Lucas said.

“So, by having the court lights,

means that most of our members

are going to be able to be more

involved in the club and will be able

to play at night-time.

“Also coming into summer, it’s much

more comfortable playing at night

than during the day.

“We are planning to hold regular

club days which we will hold at night

and have BBQ’s that will go with that.

“With the air-conditioning, it will

benefit both the younger and older

people and give them somewhere

cool to relax while they are watching

the tennis.”

Currently, the club has 53 members

with the youngest member being

Lucas’s six months old daughter, and

the most senior member is 94 years

old.

With members interested in social

tennis but also members who

are spectators and support the

community club, Lucas said she

wants to continue to build the

tennis club around a strong sense of

community.

“We have members who are

interested in playing social tennis,

but we also have people who

have become members just to

be spectators and support us a

community club,” she said.

“We have grandparents who come

to watch their grandkids play,

people who are interested in tennis,

and people who can’t play tennis

and come for hit and giggle. We feel

like we want to build a club that’s for

everyone in Warra.”

Lucas said she could walk around a

lot of small rural communities and

they struggle to stay relevant, but

she doesn’t want that to happen in

Warra.

“I want a community for my daughter

to grow up in out here,” she said.

The club aims to have the projects

completed in the coming months

and are aiming to have their first

tennis game under lights before

Christmas.

CHINCHILLA ATHLETES RUN, JUMP AND THROW

THEMSELVES INTO THE RECORD BOOKS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

With the adrenaline pumping

through his veins, as soon as the

start gun went one Chinchilla

athlete pumped his legs as fast as

they would go.

With a fellow competitor hot on heels, Alex

Bishop dug deep and found whatever energy

he had left within him.

He not only crossed the finish line in first place

but also set a new record, showing his other

little athletes they can also succeed.

On Saturday, October 3, 26 young athletes

from Chinchilla Little Athletics together with

their families took the 240km journey along

the Leichhardt to Goondiwindi.

They converged on Riddles Oval ready

to compete in the Nordic Sport Maranoa

Regional Competition which they had been

training with volunteer parents and a fantastic

support team of parents since the resumption

of their season in July.

Participants participated in both track and

field events including 70m, 100m, 200m,

400m, 800m and 1500m races, hurdles, high

jump, long jump, discus, javelin and shot put.

After Alex's record-breaking performance

in the 100m sprint to start the day, Krystle

McConville who is involved in the club and

was in attendance for the carnival, said as

the day progressed many more records were

broken.

"Nick Lloyd broke the record for the high

jump," she said.

"Jake Lloyd broke a record for hurdles.

"Allara Hindle broke a record for discus but it

was broken shortly after by her friend from the

Mitchell centre.

"It was all hands on deck with parents helping

out wherever they could."

With 80 young athletes, participating in the

carnival coming from Mitchel, St George,

Goondiwindi, there was plenty of rivalry for

the local athletes throughout the day.

To help along the way Little Athletics

Queensland representatives were there giving

hints for improvement in their events and

some enthusiastic encouragement.

"It quickly became apparent the mateship

forming between athletes from different

centres through the shared passion for sport

and athletics, all sealed by a healthy dose of

competition," Krystle said.

As the day wound down, most athletes had

earned themselves medallions for their efforts

in their chosen events.

They were all exhausted and excited by the

end of it but are now keen to get back into

training on their home turf in Chinchilla at the

Christian College every Monday afternoon.

TEENAGE GIRL’S RUGBY 7’S FAST BECOMING THE SPORT

OF CHOICE IN CHINCHILLA AND SURROUNDING AREAS

ZOE BELL

zoe@thechinwag.com.au

The Chinchilla River Rats Rugby

7's team's season officially came

to an end on October 3, and it

was quite a remarkable year with

both teenage girl teams going as

far as they could – all the way to

the grand final.

The successful year all started with a strong

recruitment during the offseason with the

club netting several new girls wanting to

have a go at something new.

Due to these new members coming aboard it

meant they were fortunate to be able to enter

an under 15 and 17 teams into the Darling

Downs competition.

With the pre-season well underway before

COVID hit, there was doubt as to whether

the 2020 campaign would preceed but

after several weeks/months and under strict

guidelines training resumed.

When the season competition started, coach

of the under 17s team, Lindsay Ashby said,

Chinchilla never looked back.

"The new girls which included Breeana

Hoskin from Dalby, Christina Jones, Chloe

Pallisier, Lilly Taylor, Kataya Jackson, Sophie

Bender and Erin Chandler from Millmerrin,

Katie Bunker from Taroom and Holly Schoff,

Jordan Fox, Melanie Hurley, Lucia Sperling

and Teagan Scott, all embraced the River

Rats culture and with each girl growing with

confidence at each carnival," he said.

"It was clear that Chinchilla had unearthed

some raw talent.

"A special mention to Katie Bunker and Mel

Hurley who unfortunately suffered seasonending

knee injuries in their first games of

the season."

The under 15 team had a remarkable season

given this team was rebuilt with mainly new

girls which galvanized this team especially

when most weeks they only played with one

reserve.

Coached by Rick Stone from Dalby, Ashby

said he did a fantastic job each week with the

new-look team, especially when most of the

team had to be coached from scratch.

"These girls were quickly becoming the crowd

favourites each week with Sophie Bender

and Jordan Fox scoring long-range tries with

blistering speed down the sidelines," Ashby

said.

"Lilly Taylor was another who improved as

the season progressed, as did Breeana Hoskin

who had an outstanding season.

"Captain Kate Ellem always led from the front

and was always encouraging her team to

work hard and have fun."

Despite losing the grand final, Ashby said the

team would only be more robust in 2021, and

they lost to a very experienced Toowoomba

Bears side.

"To make the Grand Final with most of these

new girls was an incredible achievement and

who knows what happens in 2021," he said.

The under 17's girl's side also had quite the

season with a few new girls on the team.

Ashby, who was coaching the team, explained

that the club did have struggles especially

when it came to getting reserves, but they

always stepped up once on the field.

"Captains Cobi Zerbst and Chloe Ellem always

lead from the front," he said.

"Christina Jones was outstanding in her first

year playing 7's and will not surprise if she

plays at a higher level.

"Cobi Zerbst also had a season to be proud of,

and she stepped up in the defensive line by

making repeat tackle sets.

"Although struggling for opposition some

weeks, The River Rats girls kept a positive

attitude and just played the cards dealt.

"Sumah Ringlestein was another who stepped

up, and was instrumental in the 2020 results."

As the season unfolded and with the under

17 team Ashby noticed that the group was

starting to click, and their confidence went

another level and before they knew it, we

were playing in the Grand Final.

Although beaten 17-12, the team has no

doubt who the crowd were barracking for

which was appreciated.

"It was a great season by all involved and a

special mention to the parents who travelled

every Sunday morning to Warwick or

Toowoomba," Ashby said.

"We also have to thank our sponsors MPC

Contracting, Power Pumping, Chinchilla

McDonalds, Edan Zerbst Builders and D&K

Diesel Services because without their support

the season wouldn't be possible.

The next for the girls is to see if they make

the Darling Downs representative teams to

contest Noosa International 7's.

They were due to be announced but

unfortunately could not be published in time.
