Grain handling – Plains shire to support scheme trial

LIVERPOOL Plains Shire has agreed to support a scheme improving productivity within the grains industry, but only while the council’s satisfied the roadnetwork is not suffering.
Nanjing Night Net

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

Champions: North Queensland celebrate their first premiership. Picture: NRL南京夜网.RUGBY LEAGUE
Nanjing Night Net

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.
Nanjing Night Net

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.
Nanjing Night Net

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.
Nanjing Night Net

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.

Gunnedah’s Garland getsfinal quinella

GREYHOUNDS
Nanjing Night Net

BRIAN Garland had an angel behind a dream on Saturday when the Gunnedah greyhound trainer claimed a quinella in a final on his home track.

Deb’s Dream made up for a sloppy start to come screaming home in the 347m Yagoona Supporters Final with kennel mate Bindigo Angel finishing strongly for second after both Garland dogs took out their respective heats last week.

Kevin Sills’ Springsteen finished a close third, although the placings were five lengths off the lead after Deb’s Dream turned it up at the top of the straight before streaking away.

The win makes it three firsts, two second and a third from her last six starts, as the three year old flew to her fifth career victory, shattering the 20 second mark along the way to record a time of 19.75 seconds.

For the younger Bindigo Angel the seond place makes it a first and two seconds from her last three starts, bouncing back from a seventh and two eights in June and July.

“I am very happy with that,” Garland said.

“I wasn’t expecting it but I was hoping for it.”

“They had a pretty strong race going.”

Deb’s Dream is normally a solid starter, although after drawing box five and missing the jump Garland thought it was over. “She hasn’t missed a start for 10 races straight until today,” Garland said.

“I was hoping for one, two or three because she likes the inside.”

Despite that her last two wins have come from the outside last week and the middle five box on Saturday, and it has Garland thinking there could be more in the tank.

“We will come back next week and see where they put them both,” Garland said.

“After that Deb’s Dream will have a spell because she has a few niggles.”

“Then we will be back to see what she can do.”

Earlier Greta trainer Bradley Sabotic began to emulate what Garland had already done, taking out both heats of the Ladbrokes Stakes with full sisters Midnight Mytic and Midnight Panda.

Sabotic will return to Gunnedah this Saturday to try and take the one two as well.

Bushfires get early jump on season

AFTER an abrupt start to the bushfire season on Saturday, hundreds of fire personnel took advantage of a break in the windy conditions on Sunday.
Nanjing Night Net

With temperatures in the 30s and strong winds expected over the new few days, the Tasmania Fire Service are preparing for what is shaping up to be a busy week.

Crews were kept busy throughout Sunday with bushfires burning at Orford, Osterley and Glenfern.

The Tasmania Fire Service is now attempting to organise a taskforce from the North-West to assist Southern crews during the first half of the week.

Acting deputy regional chief Mark Klop said that the main concern for crews was the fire at Orford which was first reported at midday on Saturday.

“The biggest one that we’re keeping an eye on at the moment is the Brockley Road fire at Orford, where the fire is located it may have an impact on the highway,” Mr Klop said.

“With the reduction of the wind, we’ve been able to utilise helicopters in areas we weren’t able to utilise [on Saturday] and also we’ve been able to get fire crews in.

Mr Klop said that by Tuesday, severe fire conditions would have taken effect in the state.

“There are very high fire danger ratings on Tuesday and similar wind conditions to Saturday,” he said.

“Some of the fires do have potential to increase in size over the next 24 hours.”

He said people should not carry out any personal burn-offs until Wednesday.

Mr Klop said that unless Tasmania saw some late spring rain, the state could expect to see a drier than average summer.

Red flag raised over new planning scheme

A “DISAPPOINTED” Local Government Association of Tasmania will lobby against the state government’s newly proposed planning legislation.
Nanjing Night Net

Planning Minister Peter Gutwein tabled new framework legislation for a statewide planning scheme late last month, which he says will raise planning consistency from 15 to 80 per cent between Tasmania’s 29 councils.

The proposal, while strongly supported by industry and developer groups, has been received with hesitancy from the Greens and the Tasmanian Conservation Trust.

LGAT has since added its name to those with concerns, voicing opposition against a reduction in development application and assessment timeframes.

LGAT acting president and Circular Head mayor Daryl Quilliam said the association’s view had been ignored by the state government.

“We are extremely disappointed that the government did not respond to our concerns regarding the reduction of assessment timeframes for permitted development applications,” Cr Quilliam said.

“[They have] tabled an amendment to reduce the timeframe from 28 to 21 days, we will be lobbying against this.”

He said the 28-day assessment allowed planning authorities to work with developers to address problems or deficiencies in applications, without having to issue a formal information request.

“Assessment timeframes in Tasmania are already significantly less than other states, and were recently reduced from 42 days to 28 days,” Cr Quilliam said.

“The Tasmanian Planning Scheme is not yet widely understood and local government strongly feels there is a high risk in reducing timeframes before a new systems is implemented and tested.”

Although the scheme’s implementation has been heralded as a conduit for fast-tracked development approvals, Cr Quilliam said the association believed there was no evidence to support this.

“The Tasmanian planning scheme will identify more permitted pathways and introduce more consistency, but the process requirements remain the same,” he said.

“In itself, it does not make things faster, nor necessarily simpler.

“The local government sector looks forward to broader consultation on the detail of the Tasmanian planning scheme.”

Taking a shine to flash cars

Nanjing Night Net

ROCK & RODZ is all about wide, chromed wheels and big American cars for Perth’s Nathaniel Riley-Coleman.

The four-year-old was on Sunday in his element among hundreds of hot rods, motorcycles and classic cars.

But he was faced with a tough decision when asked to choose his favourite vehicle, unable to separate a jet black Pontiac Firebird and bright red Pontiac GTO.

Rock & Rodz organising committee secretary Wendy O’Keefe said that the annual Camp Quality fundraiser had maintained its perfect record of sunny weather for its seventh event.

‘‘We’ve had it pour with rain coming up to Rock & Rodz and the ground’s been mud on the Saturday, but the weather has always been perfect on the day, without fail,’’ a delighted Mrs O’Keefe said.

‘‘It’s always really popular and this year’s been no exception, with a bumper crowd packing in for what is the first big car show of the year.

‘‘Raising money for Camp Quality is a good reason to get that car polished up and out there.

‘‘There was a special treat for the blokes this year, with former NASCAR racer Allan Rourk interviewing dry salt lake racing legends Rod Hadfield, the first driver in Australia to exceed 200mph (320kmh), and Norm Hardinge.’’

But while some people came for the vehicles, many others dressed up in their glad rags and headed for the dance floor, with rock ‘n’ roll music and performance courtesy of bands like Crazy Flatz, Yesterday’s Gentlemen, Skooterz, Miss Kitty’s Meow and Louis King and the Sun Kings.

Mrs O’Keefe estimated the crowd at a bit more than 2000.

Grills award caps her best season

TURF
Nanjing Night Net

SUE GRILLS and the Tamworth Jockey Club were surprise winners when the NSW Country and Provincial Racing Awards were handed out at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney on Friday night.

Sue Grills

While the Tamworth Jockey Club, which is having a $2million upgrade to its tracks, won the Country TAB Race Club of the Year, Sue Grills won her first Country Trainer of the Year.

She was one of four nominees for the trainer award and thought either Greg Bennett, Matthew Dunn or Neil Godbolt would win it.

“It was a shock,” Grills told The Leader Saturday morning.

“A pleasant surprise. I thought one of the other three male finalists would win it.”

The award capped a big season for her where she finished a win behind Paul Perry in the Hunter and North West Racing Association premiership. “It was my best season,” she said of a year where she trained 40winners.

“Paul Perry beat me by one but I couldn’t get a winner the last month or so.”

While she had just one runner at Bundarra on Saturday (Seektowin) her next meeting is at Gunnedah this Saturday.

“It’s going to be a big day,” she said.

“Sophie (stable apprentice Sophie Young) is getting married Saturday too.

“Then we have the Coonamble Cup on Sunday and Armidale on Monday. I told Sophie she couldn’t have picked a busier weekend,” she joked. Seektowin won at Bundarra for Grills and Young, claiming the Bundarra Sport & Recreation Club Maiden Handicap (1300m).

Grills was also delighted for the Tamworth Jockey Club too.

“That was a big shock too but good for them,” she said of a club which has transferred seven of its meetings to Scone and Armidale while the major upgrading to its tracks continue.

The TJC will run its annual Melbourne Cup meeting, sponsored by Single Builders, on Tuesday, November 3 on its B Grass but hopes to resume racing on its main track when all the upgrading is finished by the end of March.
