SEPTEMBER DREAMS: 2021 NRL FINALS

EELS DARE TO DREAM OF TROPHY

TROY DODDS

One of the NRL’s most bizarre seasons,

perhaps second only to 2020, reaches

its dramatic climax over the next four

weeks with the Finals beginning in

Queensland and a winner to be crowned in

what is likely to be the NRL’s first interstate

Grand Final.

Parramatta find themselves in sudden

death shootouts from here on, but there

remains hope that they could lift the trophy

for the first time since 1986.

With Clint Gutherson and Mitch Moses

fully fit, the Eels have a real shot at giving

the Finals a shake.

While this Sunday’s Elimination Final

against Newcastle usually would have been

at Bankwest Stadium, it’ll instead be played

at Browne Park in Rockhampton as the

NRL takes the Finals on the road to regional

centres.

“Rugby league is part of the social fabric

of these communities and we’re excited to

reward them for that support by hosting

the first week of our Finals series,’’ said NRL

CEO Andrew Abdo.

“Through adversity comes opportunity

and we’re delighted to give back to these

regions with the rare opportunity to host

semi-final games. We’re also continuing

to work with the Queensland Government

about playing in regional Queensland for

Week 2.”

Mr Abdo thanked clubs, players and

officials for the way they have handled the

relocation of the competition due to the

COVID-19 situation in Sydney.

“This has been an incredibly challenging

year, but like we did in 2020, the game has

come together and we have found a way to

keep our competition going which is a great

outcome for our fans, many of whom are

experiencing lockdowns,” he said.

“I can’t wait for the series to start.

Clearly Melbourne and Penrith have been

outstanding through the regular season,

but we saw only a week ago that Parramatta

defeated the Storm – a number of teams

have found form at the right time of the year

to set up the series perfectly.

“This will be a very unique Finals Series

knowing that teams will not have the

usual home ground advantage. It will be

especially important for members and

supporters of the teams in Queensland to

attend the games and give their teams the

edge at a home away from home.”

The NRL officially launched the Finals in

Brisbane on Monday morning.

Tickets are on sale now for QLD-based

supporters.

SEPTEMBER DREAMS: 2021 NRL FINALS

THE WILD ROAD TO SEPTEMBER

TROY DODDS

After a long season, Parramatta are

now focused on the Finals and

breaking their 35-year Premiership

drought.

Here’s how they got to September:

Round 1: An epic comeback

Parramatta kick-off their campaign with

a comeback win over Brisbane at Suncorp

Stadium. The Broncos take a 16-0 lead into

half-time, but the Eels score three tries in 11

minutes to take the lead and go on to win

24-16.

Round 2: A win for the ages

Maika Sivo bags a late try to help

Parramatta to a gritty 16-12 win over

defending Premiers Melbourne at Bankwest

Stadium. Sivo bags a double in the

victory while Junior Paulo also grabs a

four-pointer.

Round 3: Eels bite Sharks

The Sharks score first, but from then on

it’s one-way traffic as the Eels record an

impressive 28-4 win.

Round 4: Points-fest on Easter Monday

Parramatta’s unbeaten run continues

with a 36-22 victory over the Wests Tigers

on Easter Monday. The Eels took a 20-10

lead into half-time.

Round 5: Eels cop first loss

St George-Illawarra pull off a stunning

upset to beat Parramatta 26-12. The Eels

were down 18-0 at half-time and couldn’t

mount enough of a comeback to

claim victory.

Round 6: Parra bounces back

Brad Arthur’s men bounce back with an

impressive 35-10 thrashing of Canberra at

GIO Stadium. Isaiah Papali’i scores in just

the second minute, setting the tone for the

afternoon.

Round 7: Broncos belted

Maika Sivo grabs a hat-track as Parramatta

ease to a 46-6 thumping of Brisbane in

Darwin. The Eels led 24-6 at half-time and

went on with the job in the second half.

Round 8: More Sivo magic

Maika Sivo’s try-scoring feats continue.

He grabs a double as Parramatta convert a

16-0 lead at half-time into a 32-10 defeat of

Canterbury at Stadium Australia.

Round 9: Eels get past Roosters

In a controversial night at Bankwest

Stadium, Parramatta get home 31-18 over

the Roosters. Bryce Cartwright produces a

fine performance, grabbing a double.

Round 10: Forward thinking

Reagan Campbell-Gillard scores two

tries in the space of four minutes to help

Parramatta to a 24-6 half-time lead over the

NZ Warriors. The Eels go on to win 34-18.

Round 11: Sea Eagles soar

Parramatta produce a disappointing

performance in a fiery game against Manly.

Four players are sin-binned, as the Sea

Eagles ease to a 28-6 win over the Eels.

Round 12: Bunnies too good

South Sydney prove too good in Indigenous

Round, jumping out to a 20-6 halftime

lead and eventually winning 38-20 at

Stadium Australia.

Round 13: Back in business

Parramatta bounce back from two straight

losses to thrash a hapless Newcastle 40-4 at

McDonald Jones Stadium.

Round 14: Eels power ahead

After a tight first half, Parramatta roar

to life with three tries in the opening 10

minutes of the second half on the way to a

40-12 win over Wests Tigers.

Round 15: First half shock

Lowly Canterbury take a surprise 10-6

lead into half-time, but Parramatta click

into gear in the second half to win 36-10.

Round 16: Missed it by that much

Mitch Moses misses a shot at penalty

goal after the full-time siren, resulting in a

13-12 loss to Penrith at an empty BlueBet

Stadium.

Round 18: Too good for Titans

The Eels relocate to Queensland as COVID

takes hold. They kick-off the new-look NRL

period with a 26-8 win over the Titans.

Round 19: Raiders spring a surprise

Despite powering home late and almost

stealing the game on the siren, Parramatta

fall 12-10 to Canberra at Cbus Super

Stadium.

Round 20: A slump begins

The Eels look far from a Premiership

contender, falling 28-0 to the Sydney Roosters

in Mackay.

Round 21: Bunnies too good

After a tight opening 15 minutes, Souths

roar to life and go on to record a 40-12

thumping of Parramatta on the Gold Coast,

as worrying signs emerge for Brad Arthur’s

team.

Round 22: Houston, we have a problem

Parramatta’s campaign is left in tatters

after Manly tear Brad Arthur’s side apart,

winning 56-10 on the Sunshine Coast.

Round 23: A much-needed win

Parramatta keep their top four hopes alive

with a 32-16 win over North Queensland.

The Cowboys try hard, but in the end the

desperate Eels get the job done.

Round 24: A win for the ages

The Eels surprise their critics with a stunning

22-10 win over Melbourne, ending the

Storm’s 19-match winning streak.

Round 25: Young Eels no match

Brad Arthur chooses to rest a host of stars.

The young Eels go down 40-6 to a red hot

Penrith at Cbus Super Stadium.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Parramatta Square is set to add two more

eateries to its impressive dining precinct, with

City of Parramatta Council now launching its

Expressions of Interest (EOI) search.

The Council is looking for experienced

operators to run a cafe in its new community,

cultural and civic building at 5 Parramatta

Square, as well as an alfresco restaurant in the

refurbished Town Hall at 7 Parramatta Square.

5 and 7 Parramatta Square are set to open

mid next year.

City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer

said the Council is looking to partner with

“gusty” and “dynamic” food entrepreneurs

to create a vibrant, accessible and welcoming

space for people to meet.

Parramatta Square is a bustling dining

precinct in the heart of the CBD, boasting some

of the best restaurants in Australia,” he said.

A Message from Mayor Steve Christou

Council continues to support and advocate for our community

With 250,000 residents, Cumberland City Council

is advocating and working hard in this time of

crisis to support critical health messages, public

health orders and vaccination. The organisation

and Councillors have been proactive in advocating

for increased vaccination centres in our LGA,

sharing health messages in various languages and

supporting our community with tailored services,

food hampers and other activities. We use many

types of communication channels including social

media, mainstream and niche media as well as

keeping in touch via community groups and

community leaders.

Despite the Premier’s comments during a

COVID-19 press conference this week, not once

has she reached out to me despite my repeated

calls and an invitation to visit Cumberland. Premier

Berejiklian needs to work with us to help move our

community through this and out of it.

Local Government NSW (LGNSW) invited the

Premier to meet with the mayors of the 12 LGAs of

concern. She has not accepted.

These LGAs – including Cumberland – represent

more than 2 million people who are living under

curfews and the harshest restrictions ever imposed

in Australia. A few weeks ago, I invited the Premier

to Cumberland to witness the devastation and

hardships these lockdown restrictions have

caused. People can no longer afford to pay their

mortgage, rent, bills, and put food on the table.

To date, we have been met with radio silence. It’s

extremely frustrating.

I’m happy that LGNSW is jumping on board

to support my call for additional payments to

households in the 12 LGAs of concern. Over the

past weeks, I’ve called for more direct financial

support for families. Many of these families

have lost their primary source of income and

are struggling to get by on current government

support payments. Many breadwinners in western

Sydney cannot work from home and are not

‘authorised workers’. They are the blue-collar

workers who are in construction, hospitality and

health-care.

I’m calling on special COVID-19 western Sydney

support payments for the hardest hit LGAs. This

will provide emergency relief to support families

through what is the toughest conditions they’ve

ever faced.

Mayor Steve Christou, ADF personnel and Councillor Ned Attie help pack food hampers for those in need in

Cumberland City

Hundreds of food hampers in tow for Cumberland City

Community spirit is alive and kicking in our local area

with OzHarvest providing food hampers to Council’s

Auburn Depot this week. One thing COVID-19 can’t

lockdown is the support we’ve given and received.

We’ll deliver them to vulnerable residents and those

experiencing hardship, plus 125 local refugee families

we’ve been able to get in touch with thanks to the

Asylum Seekers Centre based in Newtown.

The hampers are a mix of dry goods, like rice, long

life milk, canned items, and fresh produce, including

eggs. It is enough to help feed two people a meal

a day for a week. Resilience NSW will supply wipes,

face masks and hand sanitiser in each hamper.

Just last week we delivered 300 food hampers to

locals most in need thanks to a whopping 300kg

meat donation from farmer Robert Mackenzie’s

Mackas Angus Beef. I’m pleased that we’ll be

collaborating with dedicated organisations to

distribute hundreds more in the next couple of

weeks.

OzHarvest connected with Council via the weekly

regional emergency operations command (REOC)

meetings, coordinated by Resilience NSW. They’ve

been in touch with hotspot LGAs to help those in

need. Families in the area have been doing it tough.

With the shutdown of businesses, there have been

many families who have no household income, but

still have to pay bills. I’m glad we can pull together a

gesture the community can appreciate and be proud

of. I thank everyone involved for their support and

generosity.

If you know someone in need or if you have

something to offer, visit www.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/

covid-19-community-support-exchange

Hundreds of calls have been made to our seniors

to ensure we’re providing them with the best

support we can during this time

700 calls made in welfare

checks to seniors

Thank you to our frontline workers who have

been delivering meals, undertaking wellness

checks and shopping for seniors whose

struggles have been heightened during the

pandemic.

Our team is ensuring access to vaccinations

by ringing over 700 seniors to advise them,

and in some instances, even drive them to a

vaccination hub. Now that’s a community we

can be proud of. We’ve proven we’re a strong

and resilient community and we will come

through this again as we did before.

Busting COVID myths

Experts answer your COVID questions as the push to vaccinate continues

NICOLA BARTON

From theories of government

control and microchip tracking,

to infertility; as COVID-19

myths flood the Internet, it’s no

wonder some residents may feel

uneasy.

But to help put these fallacies to bed,

last week Cumberland City Councillor

Ola Hamed invited members of

the Cumberland community and

surrounds to join Granville MP Julia

Finn, Granville GP Dr Mounjed

Dagher and Infectious Disease Epidemiologist

Dr Mohamad Assoum to

discuss and debunk in a special myth

busting seminar.

Your questions answered by Dr

Assoum:

How does Delta compare to the flu

and other viruses?

The Delta strain is a mutation of a

mutation, making it a lot more infectious

and unstable. Comparing this to

other viruses, it’s twice as infectious

as the Spanish Flu and as infectious

as Ebola.

In 2019 we had 302,084 cases of the

flu, of those 812 people died, that

accounted for 0.221 per cent of death.

In 2020 in Australia we had 28,405

cases of COVID-19, of those 909

people died (3.2 per cent). This means

COVID-19 is at least 1200 per cent

more deadly than the flu in Australia.

How long does COVID last for?

There is a condition called Long

COVID and around 30 per cent of

people who recover from the virus

will develop this. These are symptoms

that can last over 18 months.

People who were part of the original

wave all the way back in January last

year are still suffering till now.

Is the vaccine still experimental?

This vaccine has gone through all

the trials, phase 1-3 that any other

medication or vaccine would go

through.

The technology is not new, these

have been in development since

2002, since the first SARS outbreak.

Both Pfizer and Astrazeneca are FDA

approved.

If the vaccines were created to

address the Alpha strain, how

effective is it for the COVID-19 Delta

variant?

The common misconception about

the vaccine is that they are not effective

for other variants, but when

you look at how they are made they

target a specific component on the

virus itself, which are the small spike

proteins.

Can I get a third or a different dose

of a different vaccine?

This is still a work in progress and

researchers are studying its effectiveness.

So far it’s showing positive

results, however it seems side effects

are generally harsher and can last a

bit longer.

How do we know the long term side

effects?

Serious side effects that cause a long

term health problem are extremely

unlikely with any vaccination and

that is because vaccine monitoring

has historically shown that side

effects generally occur within six

weeks of your dose.

This is because your peak immune

reaction is always within six weeks of

receiving a vaccination.

my obsession, benefiting from my fortnightly

click and collect orders.

The NRL has given us something to

break the boredom; to cheer us up in an

otherwise boring and difficult period.

It was a huge relief to get my first vaccine

at Qudos Bank Arena last week. A

tip-off from a friend alerted me to the extra

slots, two months earlier than expected.

I ironed a shirt and left my neighbourhood

for the first time in months.

The volunteers in plastic shields along

Dawn Fraser Avenue brought back memories

of the Sydney Olympics. Every few

metres we were offered squirts of sanitiser,

like holy water in a church. The

nurse patiently answered all my questions.

“Think about all the fun things in

life you’ll do after COVID,” he said soothingly,

as he slid in the needle.

Soon after, hundreds of us sat neatly in

rows on the arena floor – I think I was last

there for a Beyonce concert – for precautionary

monitoring.

It was good to feel part of society again

and I was enormously grateful to all the

health staff for taking us in their safe

hands.

Here in Parramatta and Cumberland,

we’ve benefited greatly from the decision

to divert scarce Pfizer supplies to areas

of exploding case numbers. Eligibility

criteria have been eased; the State Government’s

public vaccination campaign

– “Let’s Do This” – is excellent. However,

I worry the last 20 to 30 per cent of people

could be hard to shift (and remember,

we’re only including adults aged 16 and

over in the calculation).

We have to admit vaccine hesitancy remains

real. I’ve seen it in my own circles.

Everyone’s story is different. Some people

can’t get the jab, or are against a particular

brand, due to health conditions. Others

are implacably opposed for personal

or moral reasons. Still others are drawn

to quack cures or believe bilge over the

Internet.

Vaccination is our key tool now since

losing control of Delta. So, overcoming

this lingering hesitancy matters. How

should we go about it? Redouble efforts

to bring vaccines to where the people are,

including in trusted cultural and religious

settings. For example, it was great to see a

pop-up recently at Our Lady of Lebanon

church.

Second, it’s vital the Federal Government

give people vaccine options. Some

may call this a first world problem. As one

wag wrote on Twitter, it’s not a wine bar.

But people over 60 are currently being

directed to AstraZeneca where this may

not be their preference.

While the Australian Technical Advisory

Group on Immunisation (ATAGI)

has declared all vaccines safe, it has also

Business Directory........22-23

Sport .................................................24

Now the Finals are here, and it promises

to be an exciting final month of the competition.

Enjoy the wild September ride, it’s going

to deliver something special.

How do we shift the hesitant?

recommended older Australians be given

a choice.

So, it’s essential this happens with the

Moderna supply due shortly, or the Pfizer

arriving from Singapore and the UK. For

some people’s parents and grandparents,

this could be the difference between life

and death.

Finally, aged care, disability homes and

hospitals are all settings that must be vaccinated

and bullet-proof as a priority. It’s

a disgrace they still aren’t. The same goes

for Aboriginal communities, our homeless

population and other vulnerable

groups.

I believe it’s time our leaders came under

pressure to explain what opening up

at a threshold of 70 per cent or 80 per cent

vaccination means.

What will happen to our hospitals? How

many deaths do we accept? What is the

plan for booster shots and handling new

variants as they arise?

Hopefully living with Delta doesn’t

mean we swipe our vaccine passports,

while an underbelly of society fills up our

hospitals and quietly disappears.

If this is to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated,

we need to know now.

Planning ahead for your family with

Rookwood General Cemetery

The decision to pre-purchase

a grave is a personal one

and there are many factors

to consider. By setting out your

wishes early, you can remove logistical

rising funeral prices. Depending

on your preferences, you could take

care of your family for generations

to come.

There are some considerations to

make before your appointment. Do

you prefer burial or cremation? Do

you want to be buried near loved

ones, or even with them? It’s important

to think over where you’d like

to be.

Rookwood suggests you discuss

any plans made with your family

members and loved ones. They can

also help you in understanding

what documents must be accessible

for your family or those who need

them after your passing.

“Rookwood’s services and

memorial areas are created with

dignity and affordability in mind.

communities have access to affordable

funeral services, particularly

attracting more than 2,200 permanent jobs,

boosting the local economy by $350 million

a year, and tripling the annual number of cases

heard to 75,000.

We look forward to working closely with our

partners to realise our vision for the people of

Greater Sydney to have equal access to legal

and justice services.

Rangers deliver Meals on Wheels

The City of Parramatta’s rangers and parking

officers have taken a vital new role delivering

Meals on Wheels to vulnerable residents in our

community during lockdown.

Council is doing what it can to support the

community during this difficult time, whether

it is through financial relief or providing extra

support services. Thirteen of our rangers and

parking officers have stepped in to help the

Meals on Wheels team deliver nearly 3,000 meals

to residents each month.

I’d like to thank all those involved for their hard

work in ensuring our crucial Meals of Wheels

service can continue uninterrupted during these

challenging circumstances.

Expressions of Interest are now open to run a café at

5 Parramatta Square and a restaurant at 7 Parramatta

Square.

City of Parramatta Council parking officers Perry Fulton

and Yvette Gray are helping to deliver Meals on Wheels.

Please note: Since printed copies of many of our local newspapers are no longer available,

all Development Applications (DAs), items on exhibition, and public notices will now be available

via Council’s website: cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au

Council Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6.30pm. In line

with the NSW Government’s COVID-19 restrictions, the public can not currently attend in person.

New support welcomed

Childcare relief for parents is costing Cumberland Council $50,000 a week

NICOLA BARTON

Cumberland City Council’s childcare

centres have been thrown

a lifeline, as the Commonwealth

Government announces a new support

package for early childhood education

services impacted by the current COVID-

19 outbreak.

Mayor Steve Christou said Cumberland

Council’s centres faced a dire future after

the State Government announced it would

waive gap fees for parents who chose to

keep their children at home during lockdown.

The move, estimated to cost Cumberland

Council $50,000 a week, was a devastating

blow to the service, which was already

under significant financial pressure.

Cr Christou said the Commonwealth

Support Package was a much-needed

lifeline during this difficult period.

“We welcome the announcement that

the government is going to assist local

councils like ourselves,” he said.

“We were put in a very difficult situation

after we opted in to the fee waiver

program, but we wanted to do the right

Cumberland Mayor Steve Christou has welcomed new Federal Government help.

thing for the community, particularly for

our essential workers.

“This is costing Council $50,000 a week

and rising, as further attendance numbers

drop. Realistically the package is not

enough but any assistance is welcomed.”

NSW Minister for Local Government

Shelley Hancock encouraged eligible

councils to apply.

“The 260 council-run childcare centres

in NSW provide invaluable and highquality

services, and this new level of

support will make a huge difference to

families who have been impacted by the

current COVID-19 outbreak,” she said.

“The Commonwealth Government has

confirmed that council-run childcare

centres are eligible for support as long as

they meet the relevant conditions.

“This financial support will provide

councils and their childcare educators

with some certainty during these very

challenging times.”

Ms Hancock said this financial support

recognises the importance of councils to

local communities in NSW.

“We will continue to work with our 128

local councils to ensure they have the

support they need to continue to deliver

the essential services communities need,”

she said.

The package will be accessible to

services in declared hotspots, who will be

eligible for payments of 25 per cent of their

pre-lockdown revenue.

Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)

services will be eligible for payments of 40

per cent.

The payments will be contingent on

services expecting attendance below 50

per cent.

Rydalmere: Brothel operating

in contravention of health orders

Police have issued $12,500 in Penalty

Infringement Notices (PINs) to employees

and customers at a Rydalmere

brothel, which was still operating in

breach of current Public Health Orders.

About 10.15pm on Monday, August 30,

officers from Cumberland Police Area

Command attended the brothel, after

receiving a report via Crime Stoppers

that it was still in operation – a breach of

the Public Health Orders.

The officers first spoke with the

57-year-old female owner before entering

the premises and locating three

female employees aged 31, 36, and

56- years-old and two male patrons aged

56 and 57-years-old, none of whom were

wearing face masks.

All parties initially denied the business

was operating, with one man stating he

was quoting for painting works, and the

other visiting his girlfriend.

Police soon confirmed the business

had been operating, and the group was

advised they would each receive a PIN

for not wearing face masks and all but

the 36-year-old woman, who was living

at the location, would receive a PIN for

breaching curfew in an area of concern.

Further, the owner was issued a $5000

PIN for ‘fail to comply with noticed

direction, corporation’.

All parties were directed to return

to their homes, but a short time later,

police observed the 31-year-old woman

attempting to return to the location.

She was arrested and taken to Granville

Police Station, where she was charged

with ‘not comply with curfew-area of

concern’ and ‘not wear fitted face covering

indoor area of common property’.

The Strathfield woman was granted

conditional bail and is due to appear

at Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday,

October 5.

Anyone who has information regarding

individuals or businesses in contravention

of a COVID-19-related ministerial

direction is urged to contact Crime

Stoppers.

Healthcare system

in crisis

Right now our health is at risk. Our economy

is held hostage. Families are being kept apart.

Children are stressed and missing school.

This is happening because the Morrison Government has failed

to deliver on vaccines and quarantine and his economic and

welfare strategy has left people and businesses behind. And

people caught in this crisis are struggling to navigate NSW

Government rules that seem to change every day.

Enough is enough – the government needs to do

better. I will always fight for Parramatta families

and if you’re doing it tough, I want to hear from

you. Scan the QR code to tell me your story and

put your name to the campaign to force the

government into action.

Parramatta still doesn’t have local walk-in

vaccination hubs

COVID hospitalisations have doubled in the past fortnight and

we’ve seen Westmead Hospital turn away patients, ambulances

backed up for up to 8 hours and exhausted frontline workers

forced to work 16 or more hours on double shifts.

They are all victims of the Morrison Government’s failed

vaccine rollout, which left NSW vulnerable to this outbreak

and has left parts of Western Sydney including Merrylands and

Granville with some of the lowest vaccination rates in NSW.

To get through this pandemic, we urgently need access to

more vaccines. Many in our community are still waiting for their

appointments. Parents who can’t arrange child care are forced

to choose between visiting mass vaccination hubs with their

kids in tow – potentially exposing them to COVID – or delaying

their vaccination. And more and more children are testing

positive to COVID every day.

That’s why I’m demanding that walk-in vaccination hubs be

set up in the Parramatta CBD and surrounding suburbs so that

everyone has an opportunity to be vaccinated.

If you think our state and federal governments

should stop blaming Western Sydney for this

outbreak and start working together to set up

walk-in vaccination centres in Parramatta now,

scan the QR code to sign the petition on my

website.

Cuts to Medicare under the cover of COVID

ADVERTISEMENT

Julie Owens Bulletin

While Australia is struggling through a pandemic

and the media is distracted by the latest covid

numbers,

Scott Morrison has snuck through

almost 1,000 cuts and changes to Medicare.

One in six Medicare rebates have been

affected, radically altering the cost of

hundreds of orthopaedic, cardiac and general

surgeries.

Despite the scale and impact of these changes,

doctors and healthcare providers only learned

the details around three weeks before they

came into effect on July 1. That means people

who planned surgeries before their doctor was

notified about the changes now face out of pocket costs of up

to $10,000.

This follows a pattern of rising out of pocket costs under the

current Liberal Government, which has seen gap fees go up by

around $10 for GP visits and a whopping $30 for specialists. It

now costs 43% more to see a doctor in Parramatta than it did

in 2013.

I’m fighting to stop the Morrison Government from eroding

what’s left of Medicare. I hope you’ll join me – scan the QR

code to sign the petition on my website and tell the Morrison

Government to abandon these cuts and changes.

If these cuts and changes have affected you or someone you

care about, please get in touch with my office.

Help during lockdown

A huge number of people and businesses in our community

are relying on government support payments to get through

this lockdown. But many in our community are not eligible for

these payments or find they don’t go far enough.

Volunteers and local community organisations continue to step

up wherever the government is absent, providing emergency

relief including meals, food parcels and food

vouchers.

I’ve added a list of government payments and

services and local emergency relief providers to

my website. Scan the QR code if you or someone

you know needs help.

The future of parking

Community invited to have its say on transport options for Parramatta

NICOLA BARTON

The community is invited to provide

feedback on a new parking strategy

for Parramatta’s CBD.

The CBD has been victim to the clearing

of almost 2000 car spaces to make way for

some of the city’s biggest projects.

The Parramatta Light Rail saw the

removal of a significant amount of

on-street parking, whilst the Councilowned

Riverbank car park was bulldozed

to make way for the Powerhouse

Parramatta and the Horwood Place car

park for the Metro West.

City of Parramatta Council now invites

the community to have their say on draft

plans to improve parking availability and

access in Parramatta’s rapidly growing

CBD.

The Draft Parramatta CBD Parking Strategy,

now on public exhibition, explores a

number of new opportunities to address

parking shortages.

“With record investment and a huge

population boom, the Parramatta CBD is

transforming at an unprecedented rate

and so are its transport needs,” City of

Parking is a hot discussion point in the Parramatta CBD.

Parramatta Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer said.

“Over the coming years, the Parramatta

Light Rail and Sydney Metro West will

change how people move around the CBD,

while the Powerhouse Museum and $2.7

billion Parramatta Square precinct will

attract millions of visitors and workers to

the centre of global Sydney.

“Having a variety of short and long term

parking options that complement other

transport methods will make it easier and

more convenient for people to shop, visit,

work, and do business in our city.

“I encourage the community to review

our plan and help inform the future of

parking in the CBD.”

The draft strategy recommends proposals

that can be delivered over the coming

months and years.

Short to medium term options include

increasing the duration of on-street

metered parking on the CBD fringe,

working with local businesses and private

parking providers to access unused

spaces, and revamping Council’s existing

car parks using Smart City technology.

This includes providing electric vehicle

charging stations, installing vehicle

detection sensors and improving parking

signage across the CBD.

The draft strategy is on public exhibition

until 5pm, Wednesday, September 22.

Walking in their

mother’s honour

NICOLA BARTON

Determined, selfless and a force of

nature are just some of the words

used to describe the late Aida El

Hage, a local single mum who recently

lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.

Ms El Hage, a 67-year-old aged care

worker, dedicated her life to caring for

others and touched the hearts of all of

those she came in contact with.

Now, her two daughters Angela Girdhage

and Rachelle El Hage are stepping up for a

challenge, in their mum’s honour, to bring

awareness and raise vital funds towards

pancreatic cancer research.

Taking part in PanKind’s 2021 Remember

September campaign, the sisters

alongside Ms Girdhage’s wife Tori-Alice

will walk 63km for the 63 Australians who

die from pancreatic cancer each week.

Ms Girdhage said they were determined

to take part in her memory.

“Pancreatic cancer was something that

was not on my radar until mum was diagnosed,

the fact that the survival rate is so

low is atrocious,” she said.

“If we can raise money for somebody else

to not have to go through that, that will

give me so much meaning, whilst honouring

my mum.”

Reflecting on the type of person her

mother was, Ms Girdhage said she was the

most determined person she knew.

“Mum migrated to Australia in 1987,

starting her life from scratch,” she said.

“She worked her whole life to support her

family in both Australia and overseas and

was planning on retiring and travelling

last year before she got her diagnosis and

of course a global pandemic hit.

“Mum’s workplace called her a ‘force of

nature’ and that’s an accurate description

of her.”

Pancreatic cancer is the third most

common cancer killer in Australia and has

a devastatingly low five-year survival rate

of only 10.7 per cent.

Last year the disease claimed almost as

many lives as breast cancer.

Now in its seventh year, the Remember

September challenge has raised almost

$480,000 to date.

Challengers can Give It Up by removing

caffeine, sugar or alcohol from their diet,

or alternatively Move It by walking 63km

over the month of September.

COUNTRY IN HER

EMILY FESZCZUK

While we need to stay home,

country pop artist Melanie

Dyer has found a new

home at ABC Music.

The singer songwriter

has celebrated the move by releasing her

new single, ‘Run Out of Road’.

The 27-year-old told Parra News that her

new musical partnership with ABC felt natural

and exciting.

“I have been drawn to the ABC team for

quite a while, they have always been there

and supportive of what I have been doing

even when I wasn’t a part of their label,”

Melanie said.

“To officially move over to them and have

that team with me that are on board and

believe in the music I am making for the

next chapter is really exciting.”

Kicking off that next chapter with her latest

song, ‘Run Out of Road’ has taken on

a whole new meaning due to the current

pandemic.

“I wrote this song in Nashville at the start

of 2020 just before everything came to a

halt and COVID shut down international

borders and at the time it was just about exploring,

enjoying freedom and the ability to

take off and hit the road,” she said.

“It has taken on a new meaning since we

can’t do those things so now it is about remembering

to live in the moment because

you don’t know when those things will

change.”

Similar to her tracks ‘Memphis T-Shirt’

and ‘20s’, Melanie said she loves walking

the line between country and pop music.

“I grew up on a farm and am back here

during this time so country is very much

my roots but I love the melodies and

phrasing with pop and merging the two

comes naturally to me,” she said.

“Mixing them broadens the audience and

I have crossed over to commercial radio

more which is great because I can get more

people to listen and hopefully become a

fan of country.”

Whether you are a fan or not, there is

no denying that country music can evoke

emotions through its story telling.

“People still make the mistake of calling

it country and western music but it is not

cowboys and tassels and getting up on your

horse to ride into the sunset,” she said.

“It’s about real people, real stories and

connecting… it’s pretty versatile and the

sound is uplifting and makes you feel

things.”

Listen to Melanie’s latest story now.

Melanie Dyer’s new single ‘Run Out of

Road’ is out now on all music

streaming services.

TV NEWS

‘Eurovision: Australia Decides’ will

return to the Gold Coast in February 2022.

After a two-year absence due to COV-

ID-19, SBS will return to the Gold Coast

Convention and Exhibition Centre on

February 25-26. The live TV event, hosted

by Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst, allows

Australians to help choose who will represent

the nation at the Eurovision Song

Contest in Italy next year.

Two-part documentary ‘Todd Sampson’s

Mirror Mirror’ will premiere on 10

on Wednesday, September 8 at 7.30pm.

In this confronting doco, Todd lifts the

lid on the beauty industry to discover

an ugly side – how our obsession with

beauty is exploited by the fitness, diet

and pornography industries, and how our

image-obsessed culture can easily lead to

disorder.

If you love your Indian food like me,

do I have the show for you! Three Indian-

Australian chefs Helly Raichura, Adam

D’Sylva and Sandeep Pandit will front

SEPTEMBER 17

MORNING WARS, APPLE TV+

SEPTEMBER 23 8PM INDIA UNPLATED, SBS FOOD

a new food documentary series, ‘India

Unplated’, on SBS Food. Premiering on

Thursday, September 23 at 8pm, the 10-

part series will highlight the complexity

and diversity of Indian food from right

across the subcontinent.

Season four of ‘Love It or List It’ will

premiere on LifeStyle on Wednesday,

September 29 at 8.30pm. Andrew Winter

and Neale Whitaker return with 10 new

episodes of the hit property series.

The next season of ‘LEGO Masters’ is

set to feature celebrities, for some reason.

It’s been reported that the series, hosted

by Hamish Blake, will be the latest reality

show to take a celebrity detour. It’s understood

a celebrity will be paired with a

family member or friend when the series

begins filming in Sydney soon. I must

say, I’m not a fan of this idea at all. ‘LEGO

Masters’ is a show that doesn’t need a

celebrity push for ratings, but I’ll judge

for myself when it eventually airs.

Unsurprisingly the ‘Punky Brewster’

revival, which was streaming on Stan, has

been axed after one season.

Season four of popular Kevin Costner

drama ‘Yellowstone’ will begin streaming

on Stan on Monday, November 8. Aussie

actress Jacki Weaver joins the cast this

season, in a recurring role as Caroline

Warner, CEO of Market Equities.

The second season of acclaimed Apple

TV+ drama ‘Morning Wars’, starring

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon,

will premiere on Friday, September 17.

Episodes will drop weekly.

False start for Eels in NRLW

NATHAN TAYLOR

The Parramatta Eels will have to wait a

little longer to unleash their first ever

NRLW team, with the 2021 Women’s

Premiership postponed until the New Year.

Next year will now include two NRLW Premierships,

State of Origin, the women’s World

Cup and State Leagues – creating a full year of

top tier women’s rugby league.

The decision to delay the 2021 NRLW competition

until the New Year provides the best

opportunity to ensure six teams complete a

safe and full season with minimal disruption

to the lives of the playing group and support

staff.

The Australian Rugby League Commission

last week reiterated its commitment to ensuring

the 2021 season is played and approved the

change after considering that the infection rate

in NSW is currently more than 10 times greater

a day than it was when the men’s competition

was relocated to Queensland. It also took into

account a significant number of players and

officials are located in NSW Local Government

Areas of Concern and cannot currently train

under the state’s Stay At Home Orders.

NRL Chief Executive Andrew Abdo said

moving the competition to the start of 2022

created an exciting opportunity for the first

year-long calendar of women’s rugby league.

“The rescheduling provides us with an opportunity

to create a full 12-month calendar for

women’s rugby league in 2022 and importantly

means our athletes will not have to relocate,”

he said.

“Next year there will be two NRLW competitions,

a World Cup, an Origin series and State

competitions. That’s never happened before.

This presents an opportunity to build the

profile of the women’s game next year and we

are looking forward to making the most of that

opportunity.”

Mr Abdo said the NRL had exhausted all

options to play the 2021 season in its scheduled

October timeslot.

“We explored all avenues, but it is simply not

possible. When the men’s competition was

relocated to Queensland there were 77 cases

in NSW on that day, there’s now consistently

over 1000 cases a day and restrictions around

border closures are much tighter than they

were in the middle of the year,” he said.

“We also acknowledge that nearly all our

NRLW athletes are not full-time athletes. They

have careers off the field that limit the ability

to be able to relocate for a long period of time.”

Dates and the draw for the expanded 2021

NRLW competition will be released soon.

SEPTEMBER DREAMS: 2021 NRL FINALS

SIMPLE MISSION: WIN OR GO HOME

NATHAN TAYLOR

After resting a host of their stars in the

final round of the regular season,

both Parramatta and Newcastle

will put it all on the line this Sunday

afternoon when the two teams do battle in

a sudden-death playoff.

The sixth-placed Eels will go up against

the seventh-placed Knights at Browne

Park in Rockhampton, with the winner

to advance to week two of the NRL Finals

while the loser goes back to New South

Wales dreaming of what could have been.

For the Eels, they’ll be as close to fullstrength

as possible with captain Clint

Gutherson, halves Dylan Brown and Mitch

Moses, and forwards Nathan Brown and

Reagan Campbell-Gillard back in the fold

after missing last week’s 40-6 defeat to

Penrith.

Despite resembling a reserve grade outfit,

Parramatta were mighty impressive in their

heavy loss to the Panthers with the Blue &

Golds sticking it to the competition favourites

in the first half. While the scoreline

eventually got away from them, the patched

up Eels earned a heap of praise from their

coach post-match.

“I’ve never walked into a dressing shed

Parramatta coach Brad Arthur. Photo: NRL Photos.

where we’ve had 40 points put on before

and say I was proud and I meant every

single word,” Brad Arthur said.

“I thought we played tough, our effort

was great, and we tried our backsides

off to compete with them. I’ve got some

headaches coming into next week picking a

bench. I was extremely proud of them.”

Arthur’s men will take on a Knights side

this Sunday who also lost their final game

of the season to Brisbane after choosing

to rest players, including Kalyn Ponga and

Mitchell Pearce, during the game.

Prior to their 35-22 loss to the Broncos

last Saturday, Newcastle were enjoying a

five-game winning streak and were starting

to find some form at the best time possible.

Knights coach Adam O’Brien said his

troops still have another level to go to.

“I’ve said it for a while, our best footy is

still waiting to happen – fingers crossed that

happens this week,” he said.

“We need to play well against a team that’s

starting to get some of their mojo back.”

Parramatta will go into this weekend’s

Elimination Final as favourites with the

bookmakers, with coach Arthur wary of

what his opposition is capable of.

“They’ve been playing some really good

footy, they’ve been playing some controlled

footy - they don’t give you much,” he said.

“We’re going to be in for a real fight.”
