– GALLERY: Throwback Burnie Show.

BURNIE’S edition of fashions on the field saw young women put their best dress on and walk the stage in front of a crowd on Saturday.

Kelsey Ellis, of Ulverstone, was crowned Burnie Show Ambassador, a title which will be held for a year.

Three other young locals earned the title in their respective categories. Event organiser Giovanna Simpson questioned entrants on the importance of local agriculture within the community.

She questioned entrants on what inspired their outfit and why they decided to wear it and commended entrants, saying every girl was a winner.

“The main thing is that they got up on stage,” Ms Simpson said.

“A sash is just a sash.” She said the ambassador competition was a great part of the show that would be continued next year.

Event judge Damita Lamont said she was looking for fashion that was both feminine and classic.

“We’re looking for someone who will represent the show within their community for the next year,” Ms Lamont said.

Crowds flock to Vicar of Dibley

MORE than 90 per cent of tickets to all The Vicar of Dibley performances at Ulverstone are sold.
Nanjing Night Net

Despite only opening on Friday, the Ulverstone Repertory Society shows are almost sold out and a new performance has been added on October 15 as a result.

There was not a seat left on opening night on Friday, there were only three free on Saturday night, and yesterday afternoon there were none.

The Ulverstone Repertory Society’s production of The Vicar of Dibley, Maree Brodzinski as the Vicar.

“We are effectively sold out. It feels fabulous; we knew it would be an attractive production in terms of people being familiar with the show,” director Emil Djakic said.

“People have come to know us for our quality theatre and good comedies.”

Several local shows have recently attained a close to sell-out status – including Breaker Morant, directed by Doug Doherty.

“I think people are realising that it’s different sitting in front of a theatre with a couple of hundred people, sharing the experience, than it is sitting in front of the small screen at home with just a few people,” Djakic said.

The Ulverstone Repertory Society’s production of The Vicar of Dibley, Simon Baldock, Barry Williams and Eddie Roberts.

“People are enjoying coming to the theatre to see theatre and good quality shows. The Devonport Choral Society, Burnie Musical Society and Burnie PCYC are all doing well too.”

The Vicar of Dibley will be performed at 8pm on Friday and Saturday and October 15-17, and 2pm on Sunday and October 17. Tickets cost $22 for adults, and $20 for concession. Contact 6425 2839.

State feeling the heat but cool front on the way

THE past weekend’s warm weather is expected to continue for the next two days.
Nanjing Night Net

With temperatures across the Coast hitting the high teens to low twenties on Saturday and yesterday, these temperatures are expected to remain until a cold front crosses the state tomorrow night.

The warmer-than-usual temperatures are the result of a deep area of low pressure crossing much of the country and pulling warm air from northern Australia to Tasmania. The North-West and West Coasts were spared much of the heat that was recorded elsewhere in the state due to the northerly flow coming off Bass Strait, according to Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Tim Bolden. Despite having temperatures above average on Saturday, temperatures along the Coast were well below the hottest October day on record of 35 degrees.

Orford on the East Coast came close to this record, reaching 31 degrees on Saturday.

Sheffield had the warmest temperatures on Saturday with 24 degrees, nine degrees higher than the October average for Sheffield.

Smithton and Wynyard recorded temperatures of 23 degrees and King Island reached 21 degrees.

Mr Bolden said these temperatures were generally about four to six degrees warmer than averages.

Devonport was one degree above average, reaching 17 degrees on Saturday.

Once the cold front cross the region tomorrow night and Wednesday morning temperatures are expected to drop along the Coast to 15 to 17 degrees.

Some showers are expected around the West on Wednesday before clearing on Thursday.

Terror reminder for state

THERE was no known terrorist threat in Tasmania but the shooting of a NSW Police employee in Sydney was a reminder of Australia’s security environment, according to Premier Will Hodgman.

He spoke following the death of Curtis Cheng in Parramatta on Friday in a shooting believed to be linked to terrorism.

“On behalf of Tasmanians, I wish to convey heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of the victim of this senseless act,” Mr Hodgman said.

“Violence in any form is utterly unacceptable, and although there is no suggestion of a terror link to Tasmania, we must all be vigilant.

Premier Will Hodgman

“It is also a sad reminder of the ever-present danger that members of our police force face, and I wish to commend and thank them for their professionalism.”

The state government maintained a strong counter-terrorism policing capability and worked closely with relevant federal, state and territory agencies, Mr Hodgman said.

Farhad Jabar Khali Mohammad, 15, shot Mr Cheng at close range outside the Parramatta police headquarters.

NSW Police said Farhad’s motivation was a mystery, but “we believe his actions were politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism”.

Muslim community leaders expressed shock at the incident and called for more action to prevent extremist leaders from recruiting vulnerable youths.

Mr Hodgman said it was important that Muslim communities and their leaders were engaged by government and police to prevent radicalisation.

“This includes not only specific cases requiring intervention but more broadly measures and programs that the Tasmanian government adopts that create a more socially cohesive environment and lifestyle.

“The Tasmanian Muslim community is a peace-loving one and it has an important place in our state.

“We should not vilify or blame the entire Muslim community for the actions of a very small minority of violent, extremist individuals.

“The Muslim community in Tasmania … are our partners in combating this type of violent extremism.”

The state and federal government have collaborated to establish a Countering Violent Extremist Intervention Co-ordinator within Tasmania Police.

Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine said the incident was a tragic but timely reminder to all police to maintain high levels of vigilance when going about their daily business.

Police Association of Tasmania president Pat Allen said the group offered sincere condolences and support for its colleagues in NSW and Mr Cheng’s family.

Nitties’ confidence soars after drought-breaking win

CHARLESTOWN’S James Nitties is excited about his Australian summer prospects after a surprise form reversal landed him a drought-breaking win at the South Pacific Open.
Nanjing Night Net

Nitties shot a two-under 69 at the Tina Golf Course in Noumea on Saturday for a 16-under 268 total and six-shot victory in the $150,000 event.

He started the final day with a two-shot lead over Matt Millar, but the Canberra golfer took over at the top midway through the round.

Fortune favoured Nitties at the 14th and 15th after a luckless run on the greens. He recovered from a mishit to birdie the 14th, and Millar’s ball was stuck in a tree on the 15th for a double-bogey.

‘‘I was playing great, and I hit it close on the seventh, eight, ninth, 10th, 11th, 12th holes, within reason, but I never made any putts, and Matty was still right there,’’ Nitties said. ‘‘He ended up taking the lead, but I think the turning point was when I hit a top from the fairway on the 14th hole, the par five.

‘‘It wasn’t great, but … I made birdie from the fairway there. I had a wedge in from my top and I think that was the turning point because Matty three-putted that hole and we went to the next hole and he made a double-bogey and I made a par.

‘‘So I went from one back to two in front with three to play. It was unfortunate for him, but I was pretty proud of myself the way I played the last four holes in the wind – very solid.’’

Nitties earned $22,500 from the win, which was his first on the Australasian PGA tour since 2011, when he took out the Victorian PGA.

It also came after his least profitable season on the US second-tier circuit, the Web南京夜网 Tour, where he finished 113th with $41,554 in prizemoney and only one top-10 finish. His last victory on that tour was in 2011.

He was pleasantly surprised to regain winning form in New Caledonia after his trials in America and before the major Australian tournaments.

‘‘I have to thank my coach, Jason Laws, because I went home and I went from playing really bad in the US to really finding something and finding some great stuff to work on right before this tournament,’’ he said. ‘‘I didn’t really know what was going to happen before this event because I didn’t know where the ball was going and I was working on a lot of stuff.

‘‘So to actually come out and win a tournament … is really awesome for my confidence.

‘‘It’s just a good feeling, just to start playing some good golf and turn it around before the start of the Aussie summer.’’

His next event is the Fiji International from October 15.

‘‘If I play like I did this week, I’ve got a real chance of winning in Fiji because I really didn’t do anything wrong out there, and I putted well as well, and that’s what you have to do to win tournaments,’’ he said.

‘‘I am really looking forward to Fiji. I’m actually excited to have this newfound positive confidence that I can take into some of the tournaments at the end of the year.’’
