Council will continue participatingin the Grain Harvest Management Scheme, which is being trialled by the state government until June next year.

The scheme allows eligible heavy vehicles to legally exceed the regulated total mass limits by up to 5 per centwhen delivering loads to participating grain receivers.

Its gives farmers and transport operators the reassurance that if they misjudge when loading on the paddock, they are not going to be turned away at receival sites or breached for going over general mass limits.

Council’s director engineering and technical services, Greg Tory, said considering Liverpool Plains’ position within the farming belt and the high level of industry compliance, the council should continue its participation.

“Consultation on this issue has included grain growers, grain haulage operators and drivers, management of grain receival facilities, transport companies, government agencies and industry associations such as the Farmer’s Federation and the Livestock and Bulk Carriers Association,” he said.

Mr Tory said there had been concerns regarding potential damage to the shire’s roads and bridge network due to increased masses.’

However, initial findings indicated the scheme was meeting its aim of balancing productivity with the impacts on infrastructure.

“And industry compliance is very high with 1.6 per cent of deliveries falling outside the allowable 5 per cent increase,” Mr Tory said.

Roads and Maritime Services will conduct a review of the scheme.

Thurston the hero as Cowboys win first NRL premiership

It will go down as one of the greatest grand finals of all time.

The North Queensland Cowboys claimed the first premiership in the club’s history with an epic 17-16 victory over the Brisbane Broncos.

Cowboys captain Johnathan Thurston won the game with a field goal after they took the game to golden point extra time thanks to a Kyle Feldt try after the full-time siren that levelled the score at 16-all.

Thurston had the chance to win the game with a conversion from the sideline but hit the post.

Brisbane had led 16-12early in the second half and looked like they would win their seventh premiership with a minute to go.

But Broncos halfback Ben Hunt was penalised for a lifting tackle on Cowboys centre Kane Linnett that allowed the Cowboys to march downfield and, on the final play of the 80 minutes, for Michael Morgan to take the biggest gamble of his young career.

One to remember: Cowboys winger Kyle Feldt scores in the corner on the stroke of full-time. Picture: NRL南京夜网.

The five-eighth ran into a three on three situation 20 metres out from Brisbane’s line with only seconds remaining, on what he knew would be the last play of the game.

Morgan dummied and poked his nose through the line before finding Feldt with a one-handed flick pass for the winger to score in the right-hand corner just as the clock struck 80 minutes.

Thurston, who was named the NRL player of the year season earlier in the week when he was awarded his fourth Dally M medal, then had the chance to win the game with a kick from the sideline.

It was every rugby league player’s dream, the chance to win their team a grand final with a kick from the touchline after the siren.

Thurston’s kick looked good all the way. The champion halfback even had an arm in the air in celebration.

But the ball crashed into the right-hand upright to send the game to golden point.

There was then to be more heartbreak for Hunt as he dropped North Queensland’s kick-off to restart the game in extra time.

The Cowboys took their time and after two aborted attempts at field goal, it was third time lucky for Thurston.

Earlier, Brisbane had opened the scoring through a Corey Parker penalty goal before Corey Oates scored the opening try.

Brisbane took a 14-12 lead to the break and Jordan Kahu extended itto 16-12 with another penalty goal early in the second half.

For the neutral it was a spectacle every bit worthy of a season’s showpiece game.

It was fast, furious and full of quality.

There was not a hint of wrestling or the myriad of negative tactics that have blighted some grand finals of the recent past.

And the finish was some way to mark a historic grand final – the first to be played by two Queensland teams and the first to be settled by golden point extra time.

In the early games, Penrith claimed the Holden Cup under-20s grand final with a 34-18 win over Manly while the Ipswich Jets won the State Championship match 26-12 over Newcastle.

Firebug attack shocks Salvos

Major Tim Gittins can’t understand why anyone would want to torch a ride-on mower. Picture: Max Mason-HubersTHE senseless burning of a ride-on mower has left a Lake Macquarie Salvation Army branch in distress.

The mower was inside a shipping container at a Bonnells Bay property, where the Christian organisation has a church, office and community centre. Thieves broke into the container and stole a chainsaw, line trimmer and blower, Salvation Army Major Tim Gittins said. They pushed the mower out of the container and torched it.

“I don’t agree with it and I don’t like it, but I can understand people stealing stuff,” Major Gittins said. “But senselessly burning something doesn’t make sense to me.”

A British study found that arsonists “have been consistently found to have low or borderline IQs”.

“This is significant as those with low IQs often have difficulty in understanding their problems and generating solutions,” the study said. Arson could be preceded by feelings of anger, rejection and boredom, while arsonists often had low self-esteem and history of being bullied.

Pyromaniacs, those who deliberately set more than one fire, had a fascination and attraction to fire, that could elicit “sexual excitement”, pleasure and gratification.

Mr Gittins said the stolen equipment and mower had been used to maintain the Bonnells Bay property to “make sure it’s a safe place for people to come”. The site is used to provide help to people in crisis.

Mr Gittins said the organisation was “disappointed and upset that this has happened”.

“It caused us emotional and financial distress and we’re now without our ride-on mower until we can get it replaced,” he said.

“If anyone saw anything suspicious in the area, we’d like them to let us know [4973 1735] or report it to police.”

Pill-watch idea may be ticket to space centre

Holly Cooper, 10, with her sister Sophie, is a Origin’s littleBIGidea finalist. Picture: Ryan OslandA DESIRE to help her little sister gave 10-year-old Holly Cooper an idea that could take her to the NASA Kennedy Space Centre in the United States.

Holly, from Adamstown, and a Belair Public School student, is a finalist in Origin’s littleBIGidea competition for students in years 3 to 8, which seeks innovative ideas from young people.

Holly wants to create a watch with alarm capabilities and a small, lockable compartment for storing tablets.

A discreet alarm sounds when it is time for the wearer to take their medicine, and a linked phone application would allow the wearer’s parents to be notified when the tablet had been taken.

Her six-year-old sister Sophie was diagnosed with Graves disease at an extremely young age, and has to take medication three times a day.

She said she had the idea following a family trip to Japan when the family was so busy that they often forgot when it was time for Sophie’s next dose.

On Monday, Holly will head to a ceremony in Sydney where she will present her idea to a judging panel that includes former host of ABC’s The New Inventors and Origin littleBIGidea ambassador James O’Loghlin.

She said she was “excited and nervous” at the prospect of winning.

“My big sister really wants to go to NASA because that’s where they filmed the One Direction video,” she said.

Three sisters share their history

THE McClymonts are on the countdown to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, but with just over 100 days left they had to squeeze in a pre-festival visit last week.

While in the region, Brooke, Sam and Mollie McClymont helped to launch the newToyota Hilux in Tamworth and Gunnedah, as they are Toyota ambassadors, and they also played a few acoustic songs for media outlets, including an exclusive performance at The Northern Daily Leader.

The sister trio is currently taking a look back at the last decade of hits as they prepare for their Tamworth festival show on January 21, 10 Years of Hits.

They said the lunchtime show would include the hits, their favourites and fan favourites.

“We are trying to cover as much history as possible,” Sam said.

“Three Toyota Star Makers will perform on our show, so there are three people out there who don’t know they’re playing on our show yet.”

Brooke said the lunchtime show was different for them, but it meant they got to see other bands as well, and Mollie said playing at that time was so enjoyable for them.

The show will include songs from their debut EP and their four albums.

It’s been a busy year for the women, with Mollie being the most recently married – they’re now all married – Sam has been filming Farmer Wants A Wife as the host and hosting on Getaway and Brooke will appear in a movie next year called Spin Out.

Mollie said they were all fans of Farmer Wants A Wife, so were excited to see Sam hosting, with the show airing next year.

“It’s been off for three years, so people will be eager to see it again,” Sam said.

“I haven’t even told the girls what happens.”

Spin Out will be released in September next year and sees Brooke playing Michelle in the romantic comedy set over 24 hours at a ute muster.

Tim Ferguson wrote and directed the movie, which was shot over four weeks in Shepparton.

“They were looking for someone who could sing and asked me,” Brooke said.

“It was going in the deep end because I wasn’t expecting anything from it and thought I was just singing in it, but I had speaking parts as well.”

Mollie said they were lucky that music had brought the sisters “all these amazing opportunities”.

The region will welcome the trio back in January for their show at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre on January 21.
