LABOR’S ADVANTAGE

Labor believes it will make a significant

impact at next month’s Local Government

Election after being given clear air thanks to

the Liberal Party’s decision not to field candidates

in Parramatta.

Councillor Donna Davis, who is hoping to

retain her spot in Epping Ward, said it’s a very

telling situation.

“The Liberal Councillors by and large have

promoted and supported the agendas of the

State and Federal Governments and that will

no longer be present,” she said.

“It will become a better reflection and truer

perspective of the community. Our team is full

of familiar faces who have a strong record of

fighting for our city and suburbs."

Some Liberal Party members are running

as independents at the election after the

State Executive voted against holding a Local

Government Conference in Parramatta,

removing members’ ability to pre-select candidates.

One hopeful candidate impacted by that

decision is Jean-Pierre (JP) Abood, who is

again putting his hand up for Council following

a previous stint in 2012-2016. He’ll run as an

independent in Epping Ward against Cr Davis.

But without the Liberal branding, candidates

may struggle for recognition, which is where

Labor is hoping to pounce.

The election will be held on December 4.

LOCAL NEWS

Labor given clear air

With Liberals forced to run as independents, advantage goes to Labor

NICOLA BARTON

Labor’s City of Parramatta candidates

are painting the town red

ahead of this December’s Local

Government Election, now as the only

major party in the race.

Despite being Sydney’s second city, the

Liberal Party has barred its members from

running in the election under the Liberal

brand, forcing candidates to instead

nominate as independents.

The bold decision comes after the State

Executive voted against holding a Local

Government Conference in Parramatta,

removing members’ ability to pre-select

candidates, and instead putting the power

of endorsement in its own hands.

Despite this, the State Executive chose

not to endorse any sitting Liberal Councillors.

With less than three weeks until locals

hit the polls, Labor candidates are ramping

up their campaign, erecting signs and

distributing pamphlets to spread their

message.

In the Parramatta Ward, sitting Councillor

Sameer Pandey will recontest

alongside running mates James Shaw and

Elizabeth Scully.

Councillor Donna Davis will also recontest

in the Epping Ward, accompanied by

Cameron Maclean and Tony Lee.

Rosehill Ward’s sitting Councillor Patricia

Prociv will run alongside Paul Noack

and Sinead Simpkins.

Sitting Dundas Councillor Pierre

Esber will run with Anthony Ellard and

Sam Daher, and in North Rocks, Ange

Humphries is first on ticket, running with

Alan Mascarenhas and Nick Nikolaidis.

Parra News understands Councillor

Donna Davis and Pierre Esber are the

party’s top picks for Mayoral bids.

Cr Davis said she feels this election is a

unique opportunity for the Labor Party,

and said the candidates will campaign

hard to increase their representation in

Council.

“The Liberal Councillors by and large

have promoted and supported the agendas

of the State and Federal Governments and

that will no longer be present,” she said.

“It will become a better reflection and

truer perspective of the community.

“Our team is full of familiar faces who

have a strong record of fighting for our city

and suburbs.

“We want to ensure we deliver to the

different needs of the different parts of

the city and we have a strong team of

local candidates that understand those

individual needs.”

Cr Pandey said Labor will focus on

building on the work done so far to ensure

Parramatta is a livable, sustainable and

inclusive city.

“We have achieved a lot and are keen to

keep making a difference for Parramatta,”

he said.

The Local Government Election will be

held on December 4. Postal vote applications

are now open.

Alan Jones may be old news,

but we still need loud voices

Long-time readers of my columns

around the traps would know that

I have mixed views on broadcaster

Alan Jones.

There’s been times when I’ve written

glowing tributes, others when I’ve

labelled his commentary dangerous,

particularly when it comes to the

pandemic.

But I was interested earlier this month to

see the reaction to his sudden departure

from Sky News, the network he landed on

after he parted ways from 2GB, where he

ruled the radio airwaves for years.

Twitter was awash with celebration,

almost as if a dictator had been removed

from power.

It was the best evidence you could

ask for that social media isn’t real life –

because we know, and have known for

decades, that Alan Jones has a significant

following, perhaps greater than any other

media personality in this country over

the last quarter century.

Those who follow him largely aren’t

on Twitter desperately trying to curate a

clever Tweet to celebrate the downfall of

someone far more successful than them.

By comparison to his halcyon days on

radio, Jones had a relatively small audience

on Sky News. He largely preached

to the converted in that whole ‘Sky News

After Dark’ world, and certainly didn’t

wield the power he once did when in

charge of the most successful breakfast

show in Sydney radio history.

But still, even in his departure, Jones

was getting to people.

I’ve long believed that those most

critical of Jones rarely listened to his

program. They heard snippets of something

controversial he said, solidified the

opinion they’d formed based on previous

snippets, and carried on with their

disdain.

But amongst the three and a half hours

spent on air each morning for all those

years, Jones did make a difference for

the good. He legitimately helped people,

led campaigns for significant positive

change and held politicians to account.

“We are doing our

best to curtail the free

speech we so vigorously

defend”

Too often, however, he played the man,

or woman, rather than the ball. He got in

trouble most when he went too personal,

and it ultimately stained his career.

But I wonder, in a world where not even

Sky News can find a spot for someone like

Alan Jones, where voices like his will be

heard in the future.

Some would say good riddance, and

that’s all good – perhaps Alan Jones’ time

has indeed come.

But we still need passionate fighters.

I wonder these days, however, where

those passionate commentators will

come from.

The media landscape is such now that

if you cross that line of what social media

in particular thinks is unacceptable,

you’re liable to be cancelled or put out to

pasture. Who would put their hand up for

that kind of life?

Opinion is now no longer an acceptable

defence of an argument – if someone has

the opposite view, you’re wrong and you

deserve to be told about it as loudly and

via as many mediums as possible.

We are doing our best to curtail the free

speech we so vigorously defend.

I’m a long-time talkback radio listener.

It is largely misunderstood, again by

those who never listen but are happy

to condemn. But there is no doubt that

even that medium is falling victim to not

wanting to be too controversial, walking

the fine line of aggrieving a sponsor, or

getting the Twitter narks upset.

I’ve written a few columns in this very

paper recently that have also caused

some to be unhappy – a couple even

called for me to be sacked, as is their

right. But they would not demand such

action had I been equally as vigorous in

defence of their side of the argument.

You see those who scream ‘bias’ are most

often the very definition of the word.

I’m not about defending Alan Jones.

He went way off the reservation during

COVID-19 and Sky News is probably right

to say goodbye.

But of course we need people who will

say it like it is.

We need passionate commentators with

passionate opinions who ruffle feathers

and, often as a result, get things done.

We have to decide if we want to embrace

that, or if we would prefer the vanilla

approach.

I know which one I’d choose.

JP pushes for comeback

Former Councillor wants to focus on core community issues if elected

NICOLA BARTON

A

former Liberal Parramatta Councillor

will again throw his hat in

the ring for the upcoming Local

Government Election.

Jean-Pierre (JP) Abood served on the

former Parramatta City Council for four

years when he was elected in 2012 to the

then Lachlan Macquarie Ward.

After his term, he did not recontest and

instead nominated for pre-selection to be

the Liberal Party’s 2016 Federal candidate,

however, was unsuccessful.

Mr Abood will now run as an independent

in the Epping Ward against veteran

Councillor Lorraine Wearne and future

Lord Mayor hopeful, Donna Davis.

The father of three said he is ambitious to

get back into the chamber.

“God has given me an opportunity to

serve and I’ve always been about service…

I feel very strongly about helping people,”

he said.

When previously sitting, Mr Abood

introduced the first Homelessness Awareness

Week, as well as contributed to the

upgrades of parks, including Boronia Park

Jean-Pierre Abood is seeking a return to the Council chambers of Parramatta.

and the popular Philip Ruddock water

splash park.

Mr Abood said issues he is particularly

interested in this time around are the

delivery of Epping Pool, activation of

Beecroft and improving traffic congestion.

“The small things for me are a lot more

important and that’s making sure the

neighbourhoods are clean, families are

looked after and residents have access to

adequate services,” he said.

Born and raised in the Parramatta Local

Government Area (LGA), Mr Abood has

lived and worked in and around the region

for his entire life.

He is a home builder, former Director of

Catholic Care Western Sydney and The

Blue Mountains, former Chairman of the

Maronite College of the Holy Family and

volunteers in feeding the homeless.

Mr Abood said despite running as an

independent, he plans to make it known

to voters that he is still a member of the

Liberal Party and holds a strong Liberal

ethos.

“I have been a member of the Liberal

Party for 12 years and I am extremely

proud of that; I am a Liberal through and

through,” he said.

Mr Abood will run ungrouped in the

Epping Ward, however is part of a broader

movement with North Rocks candidates

Georgina Valjak, Bob Dwyer and Rob

Mashford, who are also Liberal members

but forced to run as independents after the

Liberal Party chose not to field candidates

in Parramatta.

Mr Abood said after witnessing the

conflict of the existing chamber, he hopes

the new Council will better work together

for the benefit of the community.

LORD

MAYOR’S

MESSAGE

CR STEVEN

ISSA

Council boosts City’s nightlife

With balmy summer nights just around the corner,

now is the perfect time to explore all the offerings

our wonderful City has to offer. To assist the City’s

economic recovery from COVID-19, Council has

awarded eight local businesses Night Time

Economy Activation Grants of up to $10,000 each.

These grants encourage local businesses, groups

and individuals to trial new and interesting

products and concepts to boost the night-time

sector in the CBD and surrounding areas.

Council launched the Night Time Economy

Activation Grants earlier this year to support

our vision of turning the Central River City into

a thriving 24-hour destination. One of our grant

recipients, Flamenco for Everybody, has used

the funding to develop a local dance show and

workshops.

The grants are also supporting the first Parramatta

edition of Global Cities After Dark – a capacity

building and resilience-focused program for

industry professionals, which aims to futureproof

Western Sydney’s 24-hour economy. Other

recipients include Nick & Nora’s in Parramatta,

Abattoir Blues in Sydney Olympic Park, Parramatta

Leagues Club, Deliv’art, and 5PM Wake Up Call.

These fantastic initiatives are just a small example

of what the City of Parramatta has to offer after

hours, so I encourage you to have a night out

and support our many local businesses as they

reopen their doors to the public.

Have your say

Concept plans for F.S. Garside Park in North Granville are

now on public exhibition.

Concept plans, proposed parking changes for

Gray and Onslow streets, and the Review of

Environmental Factors (REF) relating to F.S. Garside

Park in North Granville are now on public

exhibition, and we want to hear what you think.

The proposal includes a new district playground

with play equipment to suit different ages and

abilities, public bathroom, improved sports field,

fitness stations, two new dog park areas, new

social spaces, changes to parking arrangements

and more.

The concept plan has been developed from

community feedback collected from March

2020 and during the masterplan development.

Tell us what you think about the proposed plans

by visiting Council’s Participate Parramatta

website, or send a submission via email or post.

Come along and talk to the project team at one

of the drop-in sessions at F.S. Garside Park from

3 to 5pm on Thursday 18 November, and 10am

to 12pm on Saturday 27 November. Please

register online if you wish to attend.

For more information and to provide feedback,

please visit participate.cityofparramatta.nsw.

Submissions close 5pm, Friday 3 December 2021.

This project is proudly funded by the NSW

State Government in association with City of

Parramatta Council.

People can feel isolated

and excluded from the

community for a wide variety

of reasons. Social Inclusion Week

is a great opportunity to host an

event and help build caring and inclusive

environments with people in our community.

It’s also a wonderful opportunity to reach out to

those who may need a little extra support.

Events can take many forms including sporting

events, barbeques, music concerts, and online

get-togethers. These events provide an

opportunity for community members to engage

with one another and foster a sense of

belonging. For more information or to register

your event, visit socialinclusionweek.com.au

Parramatta welcomes its first distillery

A couple of weeks ago, I had the honour of

attending the grand opening of Parramatta’s

first legal distillery and cellar door at The Primary

Goods Company in North Rocks.

The distillery is home to the award-winning

Renegat Vodka, which claimed the Champion

Vodka trophy at the Royal Australian Spirit

Awards in October.

The Primary Goods Company also recently

received one of Council’s Night Time Economy

Activation Grants, which was put towards

creating a ‘Gin Experience’ event. This is a great

example of the blossoming cultural maturity of

Parramatta and significant evolution in our

City’s nightlife. I look forward to seeing more

innovative activities like this in the future.

Social Inclusion Week

Now in its 13th year, Social Inclusion Week takes

place from 20–28 November. As an initiative of

Play It Forward – which runs a range of inclusive

arts programs, events and projects – Social

Inclusion Week aims to build a more caring,

inclusive and connected society. This year’s

theme is ‘Connect, Collaborate and Celebrate!’

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

NSW Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions, fully vaccinated members of the public can

now attend in person. COVID-safe measures will be in place and attendees must check in, show

proof of vaccination status, and wear a face mask. The one person per 4 square metre rule will also

Election’s a family affair

For some, family and politics is the perfect mix

NICOLA BARTON

It appears leadership runs in the

blood, as loved ones make this Local

Government Election a family affair.

The Garrards are a well-known and

respected Local Government family

name in the Parramatta and Cumberland

regions, and have registered five members

from three generations of their tribe to run

this December.

Local Government veteran Paul Garrard

will recontest his seat in Cumberland

City’s South Granville Ward, representing

the Our Local Community (OLC) party,

which he founded in 2013.

Cr Garrad was previously Lord Mayor

of the former Parramatta City Council six

times and has served in Local Government

for 47 years.

He will be joined on the Cumberland

campaign trail by his wife Karen Garrard

who will run as number three on the OLC

Granville ticket.

Cr Garrard has been a strong mentor for

his daughter, City of Parramatta four-time

Deputy Lord Mayor Michelle Garrard

who will recontest her position in the

Dundas Ward. Her two children will also

take up the challenge, with 20-year-old

Kiara Garrard-Williams running as OLC’s

second candidate in North Rocks and

27-year-old Jason Garrard running as

number three on OLC’s Parramatta Ward

ticket.

Cr Garrard said he felt proud to see

his legacy in Local Government passed

through generations.

“I think it clearly indicates that Local

Government is in our DNA,” he said.

“Not only do we have five candidates for

our family but I have two other children

employed in the Local Government

industry.”

Cr Michelle Garrard said watching her

dad being a dedicated community person

growing up ignited her aspirations to

follow in his footsteps.

“My children have been part of a Local

Government family their whole life, in the

same fashion I was with my dad so we all

aspire to be community representatives,”

she said.

The OLC party is hopeful to increase its

representation and plan to be an independent

voice for the community that

focuses on local issues, if elected.

The Garrard family isn’t the only last

name appearing more than once on the

Electoral Commision register.

Also part of the OLC Party, Dan Siviero

and his wife Angela will run alongside

each other in the City of Parramatta’s

Rosehill Ward.

Liberal Democrats Charles and Hugo

Rios will run together in the Parramatta

Ward. In Cumberland, Councillor Joseph

Rahme will recontest his position in

the Graville Ward with his wife Melissa

Rahme running as number three on

Michael Zaiter’s Wentworthville ticket.

Northmead: Man arrested after

major drug investigation

A Northmead man has been charged

after police seized more than $2 million

worth of cocaine and a hydraulic press.

Earlier this year, detectives from

the State Crime Command’s Organised

Crime Squad, together with the

NSW Crime Commission (NSWCC),

commenced an investigation under

Strike Force Becke into the activities of

an alleged criminal syndicate involved

in the supply of cocaine across Sydney.

Following extensive investigations,

police, with the assistance of PolAir,

stopped a tow truck carrying a Nissan

X-trail on Pennant Hills Road, Oatlands,

about 12.40pm on Wednesday, November

3.

During a subsequent search of the

vehicle, detectives seized 4kg of cocaine

– stamped with an Australian Federal

Police (AFP) logo – allegedly concealed

in the Nissan.

A short time later, a 42-year-old man

was arrested in a car park on Windsor

Road, Northmead, and taken to Granville

Police Station.

From about 1pm, strike force detectives,

with assistance from the Financial

Crimes Squad’s Motor Unit, the Dog

Unit, Australian Border Force’s Dog Unit,

and officers attached to Cumberland,

Ku-Ring-Gai and Parramatta Police

Area Commands, executed four search

warrants at homes at Zetland, Thornleigh,

Holroyd, and Northmead.

During the search of the Northmead

home, detectives seized a hydraulic

press and a metal stamp of the AFP logo,

which police will allege was used to

brand the seized blocks of cocaine, and

a further 1.5kg of cocaine.

In total, the cocaine has an estimated

potential street value of $2.2 million.

Police also seized $43,735 in cash,

cocaine, electronic devices, documentation,

vehicle number plates, ammunition,

and various items consistent with

illicit drug supply during searches at the

other locations.

All items seized will undergo further

forensic examination.

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

The Northmead man was charged with

four counts of ‘supply prohibited drug’,

‘knowingly deal with proceeds of crime’,

and ‘possess ammunition without holding

licence or permit or authority’.

He was refused bail and appeared at

Parramatta Local Court on Thursday,

November 4.

Inquiries are continuing.

Anyone with information relating to

the importation or supply of illicit drugs

is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on

1800 333 000.

Merrylands: Drug set-up found

after early morning house fire

Police are appealing for public assistance

as they investigate a sophisticated

We need to protect our

community from scams

Last week I met with three locals – Mohan,

Suresh and Kumar* - who were the victims of a

sophisticated online scam.

When they tried to get help to recover losses totalling

more than $20,000 they found they had few options and

almost no hope of recovering their money.

Thousands of Australians are affected by scams each year

and during the pandemic, losses to scams have quadrupled

to a staggering $33 billion.

Despite warnings from government agencies, the Morrison

Government has refused to take action.

Labor has a plan to protect Australians from scams and

provide more support for victims. We will establish a

National Anti-Scam Centre that brings together police,

consumer groups, banks, telcos and regulators to better

protect Australians from scammers.

We’ll also double funding for victim support groups,

streamline recovery of Government IDs, review penalties

Unemployment up after lockdown

Every day my office hears from people who are struggling to find work and keep their small businesses

open after the Morrison Government cut COVID support last month, without a plan for Parramatta’s

economic recovery.

Their stories are all too common. New data shows unemployment went up after lockdowns ended, rising close to 1 per

cent in NSW. The underemployment rate – which tells us how many people have a job but want more hours – also went

up to 10.6%.

We’re still waiting to see the figures for Parramatta, but our unemployment rate has tracked much higher than

NSW throughout the pandemic. Young people have been the hardest hit - the latest available figures show youth

unemployment in Parramatta is 15.1%.

While nobody expects COVID support payments to go on forever, hitting vaccination targets and easing

restrictions does not mean people automatically get their jobs and businesses back. If these cuts are

affecting you or your loved ones there are some local services that can help – scan the QR code for more

information. You can also contact my office.

Introducing the latest

offering by Australian

wearable tech

company Spacetalk

and its new kids

Adventurer watch.

What sets Spacetalk’s

Adventurer watch apart from

other smartwatches on the

market is that it is designed

with kids’ safety in mind and

made for kids aged 5-12 years

old. Made from Thermoplastic

Polyurethane, the new

Adventurer has been recognised

by independent cyber

security experts as meeting

the highest possible standards

in data privacy, security

and government regulations.

Parents have full control of

the device using the newly

updated smartphone app

which allows them to set the

watch to school mode for less

distraction, track kids with

the improved GPS locator and

set a safe contact list to include

other family members.

The Spacetalk Adventurer

retails for $349 and is available

to purchase via www.

spacetalk.com and selected

retailers across Australia.

Parra News has two Spacetalk

Farewell Bert: It was wonderful for

Newton’s State Funeral on Friday.

Bert was a legend of the entertainment

industry for so many decades

and played a role in all of our lives in one way

or another. Thank you to the Newton family for

allowing us to share in the very special tribute to

their husband, father and grandfather. We’ll miss

you, moonface!

Tradition buster: Channel Seven is

opting to delay its broadcast of the

traditional Carols in the Domain.

While the event will take place the

Saturday before Christmas, the TV

broadcast will be held back until later in the

week. We reckon it’s a poor decision. There’s

no reason why Seven couldn’t continue with

the tradition of broadcasting it on the Saturday

night, live or as close to live as possible.

80 years since sinking

Memorial service to be held to honour victims and survivors of tragedy

NICOLA BARTON

November 27 will mark 80 years

since the sinking of the HMAS

Parramatta II navy ship, with a

memorial service set to be held locally.

The sinking of the Grimsby class sloop is

one of the lesser-known tragedies of WWII

that cost the lives of 138 men.

The ship was hit by a torpedo fired from

the German submarine U559 and sunk in

the Mediterranean Sea during the early

hours of November 27, 1941.

All survivors of the tragedy have now

passed.

The Naval Association of Australia’s

Parramatta Memorial Sub Section group

wants to ensure the story continues to be

told and have organised a memorial in line

with the 80th anniversary of the sinking.

Those who made the ultimate sacrifice

will be honoured and remembered at the

event, which will be attended by many

special guests including family of survivors,

Commander of the Australian Fleet

Rear Admiral Mark Hammond and NSW

Governor Margaret Beazley.

Until recent years, there were still

Parramatta Memorial Sub Section NAA Former President, Russell Jardine with current

President Bruce Richens.

remaining survivors who would attend

memorial services of the sinking.

Sub-section President Bruce Richens

said this year’s memorial will run as close

to normal as possible with COVID-19

restrictions.

“It’s a significant part of our local

history,” he said.

“We took over the hosting of the service

when the survivors couldn’t do so

anymore and it’s important that we could

take that over to continue to hold it for the

survivors and their families.

“We will continue this on to ensure we

don’t forget and remember the sacrifice of

the people before us.”

There are four HMAS Parramatta ships,

the fourth of which is a current ANZAC

class ship in service.

Parramatta I was used in WWI and the

Parramatta name was the first ship built

for the Australian navy.

The service will be held at the HMAS

Parramatta II Memorial, located by the

river in Queens Wharf Reserve off George

Street, Parramatta from 11am on November

27.

Due to COVID-19, there are some limitations

on the size of the gathering so it will

be live streamed online for those who wish

to watch on.

The Navel Association of Australia is

an ex-Navy group which supports retired

servicemen.

Art welcomes workers

New piece offers colour and energy at 6 Parramatta Square development

NICOLA BARTON

Artist Yaritji Young.

The new 6 Parramatta Square lobby

will celebrate Indigenous culture

with a freshly commissioned art

piece.

Developer of the $3.2 billion precinct,

Lang Walker, acquired the piece by artist

Yaritji Young called ‘Honey Ant Dreaming’

for the grand entry wall of its newest

commercial office building.

Mr Walker said he has a love for Indigenous

art.

“I love the colour and the energy this

incredible canvas gives people as they see

it for the first time in the new 6 Parramatta

Square lobby,” he said.

“This is a beautiful eight by six metre

canvas which symbolises the buzz of

activity mirroring the hard work of honey

ants.

“As we all come back to the office post

pandemic, Parramatta Square will be a

thriving hive of activity and I look forward

to all of our tenants enjoying the vibrancy

this artwork brings to the lobby.”

Over the coming year, Mr Walker will

reveal four more exclusively commissioned

artworks for both 6 Parramatta

Square and the adjoining 8 Parramatta

Square.

The piece by Yaritji Young, a celebrated

member of the Tjala community, is her

largest work to date and offers a unique

representation of land, spirituality and

rich family history.

“I have used colours from the landscape

in my painting,” she said.

“After big rain everything starts to grow,

the landscape that was once a deep dark

red is covered with a blanket of green and

colour, it’s full of life and new energy.”

The work features the rock holes and

landmarks of her country, entwined with

icons and traditional marks that relate to

inma (dance) and tjukurpa (dreaming).

The twisted lines and shapes mimic

tunnels and formations made by the tjala

honey ant.

Known for their vibrant use of colour and

Big screen dreamers

New program allows people living with disabilities to achieve film goals

NICOLA BARTON

People living with disabilities in

Parramatta will now be given the

opportunity to fulfil their dreams

of hitting the big screens, with enrolments

open for an accessible film studies

program.

Bus Stop Films’ 40-week, award-winning

program, joined by new partner Western

Sydney University, is led by passionate

filmmakers and industry experts.

The program will provide students with

opportunities to visit film production

companies, work with professional filmmakers,

learn both theoretical and practical

approaches and create award-winning

films through a film school experience.

It also helps to improve students’ literacy

and social engagement, whilst enhancing

their employability and confidence.

Bus Stop Films CEO Tracey Corbin-

Matchett said she was thrilled to open

enrolments for 2022.

“We believe that people living with an

intellectual disability are entitled to learn

and participate in the power of storytelling,”

she said.

Bus Stop Films has launched a new film studies program.

“Additionally, as a WSU alumni, to now

be delivering a program with the support

of WSU makes me very proud.”

Acting Dean of Western Sydney University,

Professor Matt McGuire said that

the partnership with Bus Stop Films will

create new opportunities for student filmmakers

living with disability in western

Sydney, and open doors never available

previously.

“The film industry in western Sydney

is growing and there has never been a

better time to enhance creative pathways

through education,” he said.

“With multiple opportunities to apply

what you learn in class into the real world,

this program makes for an educational

experience unlike any other.”

Bus Stop Films has produced close to 50

films that have won more than 80 awards

and reached audiences of more than 45

million people worldwide.

The not-for-profit organisation aims to

generate genuine work opportunities for

those from under-represented groups in

the film industry, whilst advocating for a

more inclusive film industry and society

at large.

The program can be paid for through

a student’s NDIS package, which is an

added bonus for those looking to take part

in the near future.

“We’re not being heard”

Residents raise concerns over mega plans for redevelopment of Telopea

NICOLA BARTON

Plans to revitalise Telopea are

progressing, as the public exhibition

of the Concept Plan and Stage

1A close.

The redevelopment, to be completed in

stages over the next 15 years, will see close

to 5000 homes built, with towers of up to

22 storeys high.

Stage 1A of the proposal is seeking

approval for the first stage of the redevelopment,

which includes the construction

of five residential apartment buildings

containing a total of 443 dwellings, a

416-space shared basement car park, a

new arrival plaza for the Parramatta Light

Rail, road upgrades and greenspace landscaping

works.

Later stages will include the construction

of a shopping centre, including a muchneeded

supermarket, cafes, community

centre, childcare facility, library, aged care

and church facilities.

Members of the Telopea community

have raised concerns over what the cramming

in of so many new residents will

mean for the area.

An artist’s impression of part of the Telopea redevelopment.

Local resident and business owner Susan

Salt said she feels the community is being

left in the dark and do not truly understand

the magnitude of the redevelopment.

“There was not enough time for public

consultation and even still, the community

is not truly being heard,” she told

Parra News.

“The strangest thing is the new entry

into the development via Adderton Road

will include new traffic lights and a railway

crossing; if there’s a service every 15

minutes it will be one heck of a traffic jam

on an already congested street.”

A NSW Land and Housing Corporation

spokesperson said as part of the

transformation of Telopea Estate, a new

connection is proposed to be constructed

between Sturt Street and Adderton Road

across the light rail line to further connect

the north and south of the Telopea suburb.

“There will not be a boom gate. A signalised

intersection will be put in place at

Adderton Road to ensure orderly traffic

management in this area,” the spokesperson

said.

A Department of Planning, Industry and

Environment spokesperson said submissions

will now be taken into consideration

as plans progress.

“The proposal was on exhibition for

public feedback for 28 days in line with

legal requirements,” the spokesperson

said.

Stage 1 works are anticipated to

commence in 2023, with the remainder of

the renewal spread over 15-20 years.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

The Venus/Uranus trine promises lots

of love, laughter and creative inspiration.

Romance could blossom (suddenly),

or a friendship could be rekindled.

Adventure calls, as you tune into

the Wild Child within. But Wednesday’s

Mars/Uranus opposition could really

stir up your restless and reckless side, as

you unleash your Inner Rebel. Try to do

so in appropriate ways that don’t upset

loved ones, antagonise authority figures

or endanger your personal safety.

HOROSCOPES

BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOHO ASTRO - JOANNE MADELINE MOORE

Daily posts at www.bohoastro.com | twitter @JoMadelineMoore | © Joanne Madeline Moore 2021

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

Are your aspirations ambitious

enough? There’s no room for false

modesty or passive procrastination this

week! Friday’s Full Moon stimulates

your thought processes and encourages

you to come up with a cracking plan and

then stick to it, with patience and perseverance.

Having a positive attitude is

certainly encouraged. Make sure you’re

not adopting a ‘Pisces Pollyanna approach’

by putting your head in the sand

and avoiding real problems in your life.

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

Joint ventures, secret deals and trust

issues are on the table. But don’t spoil

a potentially productive week by being

gung-ho and reckless (especially on

Wednesday and Thursday). Slow down,

think before you speak and consult with

loved ones and colleagues before you

make an important move. Friday’s Full

Moon highlights hiccups in your financial

management. Strive to be less impulsive

and extravagant, and more cautious

with cash and credit.

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

This week’s Full Moon (in your sign)

emphasises your practical side. So do

your best to handle current situations

in a suitably sensible and pragmatic

fashion. When it comes to a romance,

work partnership or joint venture, avoid

getting stuck in a boring rut. Innovative

Uranus pushes you to find creative

ways to express yourself personally and

within relationships. But don’t believe

everything you hear! Keep your Bulldust

Detector switched onto high.

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

With the help of the Full Moon, use

the power of your fertile imagination

and trusty intuition to get to the bottom

of a problem that’s been bothering

you. If you listen to the wisdom of your

inner voice (and pay attention to the

symbolism in your dreams) it will point

you in the right direction. You’re keen to

communicate creatively with work colleagues

or do a favour for a close friend.

But don’t get carried away and promise

more than you can actually deliver.

The silvery, changeable Moon is your

power planet, and many sensitive Crabs

feel emotionally volatile and vulnerable

around the time of the Full Moon. Friday’s

full moonbeams are in earthy, sturdy

Taurus, so you’ll feel more grounded

(and less moody) than usual. But the

Mars/Uranus opposition could disrupt

a relationship, so be careful and consistent

in the way you communicate with

others (especially children, teenagers,

colleagues and close friends).

With Saturn and Jupiter transiting

through your partnership zone, accept

extra relationship responsibilities with

good humour as you show others what

you are really capable of. But – courtesy

of the Mars/Uranus opposition on

Wednesday – expect some disruptions

at home or work. When it comes to your

daily routine, things will gradually settle

down if you choose diplomacy over

drama, encouragement over criticism

and acceptance over judgement.

Courtesy of Venus, a relationship with

a child, teenager or close friend should

gradually improve. But expect some drama

with a relative or neighbour, when

hidden tensions bubble to the surface.

Be extra diplomatic and try not to take

criticism personally. Social media is also

a potential minefield this week, as Mars

and Uranus stir up your communication

zone. So be careful you don’t send the

wrong message to the wrong person at

the wrong time!

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Librans appreciate quality and luxury,

but don’t overdo it or you’ll end up being

the most beautiful bankrupt on the

block! This week Mars, Uranus and the

Full Moon stir up your money/selfesteem

zone. So it’s time to get your

finances in order, and be true to the

authentic you. Draw inspiration from

actress Goldie Hawn (who celebrates

her 76th birthday on Sunday). “I want to

dig deep and ask – Who am I? What do I

have to offer? What do I have to learn?”

It’s time to take a leap of faith that

could point you in a dynamic new direction!

Embrace fear and take courageous

action, as brave Mars (in your sign) connects

with revolutionary Uranus. Dare to

do something ambitious and capricious

that you’ve always wanted to do. Draw

inspiration from Scorpio birthday great,

painter Georgia O’Keeffe. “I’ve been terrified

every moment of my life – and I’ve

never let it keep me from doing a single

thing I wanted to do.”

The Full Moon focus is on your daily

routine and relationships with work

colleagues but expect some surprising

developments and stressful moments.

Resist the urge to be argumentative, extravagant

and super self-indulgent. Try

to ground your fiery energy and calm

your mind. Your motto for the week is

from actress Goldie Hawn (who turns

76 on Sunday). “The ability to remain

calm and focused in stressful situations

is central to making positive decisions.”

This week’s Full Moon favours romance,

friendships, socialising, entertaining

and networking as you mix and

mingle with a wide range of people (in

COVID appropriate ways). But be careful

how you communicate with others

on the weekend. Otherwise your confidence

could be misinterpreted as cockiness,

and your calm approach mistaken

for coldness. Are you looking for love?

You could find yourself attracted to

someone who is not your usual type.

Ride the railway through NSW

There’s plenty of adventure to be

found in NSW, with regional areas

brimming with new and unusual

things to do, see and experience!

Vintage Rail Journeys takes you on a

unique rail tour on a privately owned,

newly restored 1960s ex-Southern Aurora

sleeping train.

Vintage Rail Journeys Owner, Danielle

Smith said they offer a boutique experience

and with only 136 guests on board

you won’t get lost in a crowd.

“We have great stops and off-train

excursions every day… all of our off-train

experiences aim at showcasing the best of

regional NSW,” Ms Smith said.

“We have three exciting tours available

covering over 1,500 kilometres each to

provide a different way to see regional

NSW.”

The Golden West Rail Tour takes you

on a cruise up the Hawkesbury River, the

spectacular Hunter Valley and Mayfield

Gardens and allows you to experience

Railway History at Werris Creek and

Industrial History at Kandos.

Lastly, you visit the gorgeous Blue Mountains

Villages on a guided tour hosted by

the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus.

The Riverina Rail Tour heads south,

starting the tour along the spectacular

Illawarra Line along the water and then

up the escarpment to Moss Vale and on to

Goulburn where you spend the first night.

Co-owner, Simon Mitchell said the tour

is designed to showcase the ‘food bowl’ of

NSW as you spend time in Coolamon and

Griffith.

“We also have as much regional produce

on board the train as we can” Mr Mitchell

said.

“We love stopping in towns, and where

we remain on the train, our guests don’t

miss out as our chefs have sourced

produce and wine from the regions we

travel through”.

If you want to holiday during winter, the

North Coast Rail Tour travels from Sydney

to Casino.

You then wind your way back down the

coast, stopping at The MacLeay Valley and

Paterson before returning to Sydney along

the same rail line but experiencing different

towns each day.

With only 12 tours in 2022, make sure to

satisfy your appetite for travel and snap up

a trip now.

Is Facebook still Facebook? What

the name change means for you

In a major rebranding, Facebook’s

corporate name has been changed

to Meta.

It intends to broaden its horizons by

entering sectors such as VR, and CEO

and founder Mark Zuckerberg believes

the name change will better reflect this.

The move is reminiscent of Google’s

parent company’s rebranding to Alphabet

in 2015.

What is Meta?

Meta is the Greek for “beyond”. According

to Facebook’s vision, the “metaverse”

is the concept of a shared, virtual environment

that is not limited to augmented

reality and virtual reality. Facebook envisions

a world in which people will be able

to access a virtual world through new

devices such as glasses and headsets, in

addition to computers and smartphones.

The name change was made to “reflect

who we are and what we hope to build...

Building our social media apps will

always be an important focus for us”

according to Zuckerberg. Right now, the

brand is so inextricably linked to a single

product that it cannot possibly represent

everything that the company does today,

let alone in the future.

To commemorate the official name

change, the company replaced its

“thumbs up” sign at its Menlo Park, California

campus after the name change

with a blue, infinity shape.

What does it mean for you?

Facebook and its apps, including

Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp,

will retain their names as part of the

rebranding. They will also be kept in a

separate division from Facebook Reality

Labs, which houses the company’s

virtual reality products. This means that

the social media app will remain known

as Facebook, but the branding will be

removed from WhatsApp, Instagram,

and other places.

From now on, all of those apps will be

grouped under the “Meta” label, with

Facebook being just one of many.

As a business, it doesn’t have much

impact on your activities on Facebook

because they will be working just the

same. All the products on its social

media platforms will be unaffected by

this name change.

The only difference is that you can

expect diverse products from Meta as

it executes its vision of expanding to

virtual spaces where social media users

can interact via digital avatars.

SUMMER SPECTACLE

IN WESTERN SYDNEY

EMILY FESZCZUK

Audiences are invited on an extraordinary

adventure as ‘The

Little Prince’ returns to western

Sydney direct from France

next year.

The grand-scale performance will be at

West HQ’s Sydney Coliseum Theatre from

January 1, 2022 for a strictly limited three

week season.

Associate Producer, Catherine Haigh told

Parra News that the innovative stage production

comes from a much loved tale.

“The book was a French novella written

in 1943 that was written as a children’s title

but took people’s hearts on a much broader

scale, selling over 200 million copies

and it is the second most translated book

in the world under the Bible,” Ms Haigh

said.

“It is a tale of a little prince who traverses

different planets looking for purpose,

meaning and true love… the fascinating

thing is that it resonates with someone

who is seven, 17 or 70 as you meet the varied

and vibrant characters he meets upon

his journey.”

A multigenerational experience, Ms

Haigh said the integrated modern elements

provide a feast for the eyes.

“It is a classic tale but there is a level of

innovation with video mapping and projections

so when you sit in the theatre it

becomes an immersive experience which

speaks to both children and adults,” she

said.

“It is vivid and lush and you move relatively

quickly through different characters

and places with everything from contemporary

dance to parkour and acrobatics.”

After the COVID-19 pandemic shut

down theatres and the world for some 18

months, this show will welcome the first

major international touring cast back to

the country.

“The show debuted in Paris and sold out

then came to the Opera House and was

again a sell out but because of COVID we

felt we had unfinished business as there

was still an overwhelming demand,” Ms

Haigh said.

“To be able to bring an entirely international

cast of first class calibre performers

post-COVID is so exciting and we are

thrilled to be able to provide a hero product

to a hero venue.”

If you are after a date night idea or family

activity that will capture your heart and

imagination, delve into the arts and secure

a ticket to the must see show this summer.

‘The Little Prince’ will be on at Sydney

Coliseum Theatre in Rooty Hill from

Saturday, January 1 to Sunday, January

23. Tickets are from $89.00. To book or

TV NEWS

Alan Jones and his primetime program

on SKY News has been axed. Following

eight years with the news channel

Jones’ program, simply titled ‘Alan

Jones’, was officially given the heave-ho

last week. As for what Jones does next,

that’s anyone’s guess. Perhaps retirement

might finally be in order?

Some new and exciting shows are

coming to Channel Nine’s multichannels

– 9GO!, 9GEM and 9RUSH. Music game

show ‘I Can See Your Voice US’, ‘Travel

Guides New Zealand’, ‘The Weakest

Link US’ and Tim Allen reality contest

‘Assembly Required’ are on their way to

9GO!, while ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire

UK’, ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’

and ‘The Great Pottery Showdown’ will

air on 9GEM. Meanwhile, ‘Aussie Snake

Wranglers’ and ‘Undercover Billionaire’

will screen on 9RUSH.

After disrupted plans in 2020, ‘Carols

in the Domain’ will return to Sydney’s

iconic Domain next month. ‘Sunrise’

hosts Natalie Barr and David Koch will

host the 39th event, to be held on Saturday,

December 18. Performers set to

hit the ‘Carols’ stage include Samantha

Jade, Penny McNamee, Mark Vincent

and Paulini. Last year’s show was staged

inside the ICC in Sydney sans audience.

Interestingly, this year’s event will screen

on Seven several days after it is held, at

7.30pm on Thursday, December 23.

Channel Seven has secured the rights

to ‘Adele: One Night Only’. Filmed at

Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, the

two-hour concert features Adele’s first

new material in six years, in addition

to her monster hits and several neverbefore-heard

songs. It will also include a

chat with Oprah Winfrey, discussing the

new album, the stories behind the songs,

life after divorce, weight loss and raising

her son. It will air this month.

Filming is now underway on new Disney+

movie ‘Hocus Pocus 2’. The sequel

to the 1993 Disney classic will star original

Sanderson sisters Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica

Parker and Kathy Najimy. The film is

set for release next Halloween.

If you enjoyed ‘Back to the Rafters’

on Amazon Prime Video recently, I have

some bad news for you… it’s been axed.

It’s been confirmed that Amazon is not

moving forward with further episodes of

the series despite fairly positive reviews

for the revival.

Disney+ series ‘Foodtastic’ will premiere

on Wednesday, December 15. The

series sees skilled artists create largerthan-life

sculptures (think ‘Star Wars’,

‘Avengers’ and ‘The Lion King’) made

entirely out of food: from vegetables and

butter to fruit and cheese!

REVIEW

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings


2 hours, 13 minutes

parra news » Tuesday, November 16, 2021

With furry chicken pig like

creatures and huge dragons,

you might mistake ‘Shang-

Chi and the Legend of the

Ten Rings’ as a Disney story,

but it is a superhero movie

like you have never seen

before.

The latest offering from the

Marvel Cinematic Universe,

is an origin story that sees

a young man, Shang-Chi

(Simu Liu) face his powerful

but immoral father (Tony

Leung) and the past he

thought he left behind.

It starts off feeling very

contemporary but then

becomes richer with culture

as the history of the story is

revealed. As Shang-Chi has

to find the power within

him to confront his father

you realise there is a deeper

message with themes of

accepting where you have

come from to discover who

you are meant to be.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a

Marvel film without amazing

choreographed fight

scenes and special effects,

but the martial arts and tai

chi that heavily features

adds an interesting new

element.

Visually, the whole

production looks beautiful

and the drama is well

balanced with humour from

the lovable Awkwafina who

stars.

Fans of the comic book

franchise will be thrilled

with the pay offs that feature

but it is just as enjoyable for

first time viewers.

– Emily Feszczuk

Amarok set for auction

Your chance to own a one-of-a-kind vehicle and help an important charity

NATHAN TAYLOR

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles

Australia has announced that

its very first ‘Big Bad Wolf’, the

Walkinshaw-tuned Amarok V6 W580S,

will be auctioned off to raise money for

the Black Dog Institute and its work in

mental health.

The uber-popular hot rod ute, launched

earlier this year in partnership with

legendary tuning house, Walkinshaw,

has set sales records around the country,

both online and in dealerships. While

all W-Series’ leave Volkswagen’s Walkinshaw

Station with unique numbering to

commemorate the special Amarok’s reputation

as a thoroughbred, the very first

(#0001) W580S Walkinshaw built, finished

in April, never left the stable – held back for

a very special purpose.

Volkswagen will be collaborating with

eBay’s preferred charity partner, Bid

for Good, and hosting a five-day timed

auction on the Amarok website, www.

walkinshawstation.com.au/amarokauction,

from November 23 to 28, 2021. All

proceeds of the first Volkswagen Amarok

V6 W580S auction will go directly to the

Black Dog Institute to help with its work in

providing support, research and discussion

around mental health.

One in five people – approximately five

million people in Australia – will experience

symptoms of mental illness in any

given year; with mental illness affecting

half of all Australians across the course of

their life.

Unfortunately, of those frightening

statistics, around 60 per cent of people

don’t seek help, contributing to suicide

being the leading cause of death for

15-44-year-olds.

Ryan Davies, Director of Volkswagen

Commercial Vehicles Australia, said

he was pleased to see the brand’s rarest

example of the W580S go to such a worthy

cause.

“We always knew we wanted to do

something special with the our Amarok

V6 W-Series number one, and this is definitely

it,” he explained.

“In what has been an extremely challenging

year for all of us, we’re proud to be

partnering with the Black Dog Institute

and in some small way contribute to their

excellent, and much needed work.”

Volkswagen confirms the Walkinshaw-tuned Amarok V6 W580S will be auctioned.

Karen Elliff, Director, Funding and

Partnerships from the Black Dog Institute,

was excited to see how Volkswagen’s own

dark wolf fared on the auction block later

this month.

“We’re very grateful to Volkswagen

Group Australia for undertaking this very

special auction to raise funds for mental

health research,” she said.

“The funds will go towards continuing

our research to help more people seek

mental health support where needed.”

Make a date with the Eels in 2022

NATHAN TAYLOR

Parramatta will begin their quest to

win the Premiership for the first

time since 1986 when they take on

Gold Coast at CommBank Stadium in the

opening round of the 2022 NRL season.

The Eels will kick off the season at home,

playing the Titans on Sunday, March 13 at

4.05pm.

Highlights of Parramatta’s draw include:

• A Round 3 showdown with Melbourne

at AAMI Park on Saturday, March 26 at

5.30pm.

• The traditional Easter Monday clash

against the Wests Tigers at CommBank

Stadium on Monday, April 18 at 4pm.

• The annual trip to Darwin will next

season feature the North Queensland

Cowboys on Saturday, April 30.

• Two huge Battle of the West clashes

against reigning Premiers Penrith – first at

BlueBet Stadium on Friday, May 6 and then

on Friday, July 29 at CommBank Stadium.

• Three straight home games at

CommBank Stadium in July against the

Warriors, Broncos and Panthers.

• A blockbuster finish to the season against

the Storm on Thursday, September 1.

“There certainly is a lot to look forward to

in 2022,” NRL CEO, Andrew Abdo said.

“The draw and the schedule is always an

important time of year for a lot of banter, a

lot of analysis and a lot of prediction.

“Our draw is particularly complex because

there’s a lot of inputs that need to go in to

satisfying the outcomes we want to achieve.”

Mr Abdo confirmed a new format for preseason

trials would be announced in the

coming weeks.

Meanwhile, the biggest ever NRL Women’s

Premiership will kick off on February 27,

with five rounds, triple and double headers,

semi finals, and a Grand Final on April 10.

The opening triple header will be highlighted

by a clash between two of the

competition’s newest clubs – Parramatta

and Newcastle – at McDonald Jones

Stadium.

Three double headers will be played prior

to Sunday afternoon men’s premiership

fixtures, including at CommBank Stadium

in Round 3 (Eels v Titans), allowing fans to

watch both their NRL and NRLW teams at

the same event.

All Channel Nine matches will be broadcast

on the main channel in NSW, while

there will also be three Fox Sports-exclusive

NRLW matches.
