SLAM DUNK: Sean Weekes throws down a slam dunk against the Sea Eagles. Picture: Noel Rowsell (梧桐夜网photoexcellence南京夜网419论坛)Penrith Basketball Association’s division one men’s team has kept their slim playoff hopes alive in the 2016 Waratah Youth League competition, thanks to a strong 82-66 win over second-placed Manly Warringah Sea Eagles on Sunday afternoon at the Penrith Valley Regional Sports Centre (PVRSC).

The Panthers were unable to shake off the strong Sea Eagles in the first half, tied 21-21 at the end of the first quarter and trailing 30-35 at half time.

Power forward Tom Lewer rose to the occasion in the third quarter, leading the Panthers to a 56-53 at the end of the term.

The home team saved their best form for the last quarter, shrugging off the Sea Eagles for an impressive 16-point win.

Sean Weekes led the Panthers with 17 points, ahead of Lewer 14, Adam Lulka 14, Shol Meshwang 9, Ben Zalac 9 and Bryden Albertyn 9.

The second-placed Penrith women were strangely lethargic in their game against the third-placed Sea Eagles women, trailing all game before falling 93-75.

In spite of the team getting together mid-week for their first full-strength session for over five weeks, that preparation failed to materialise against the Sea Eagles.

Manly Warringah led 26-18, 50-33, 71-53 at the end of the first three quarters respectively, before powering home for an 18-point win.

Emily Potts led the Panthers with 27 points, ahead of Rhiannon Pope 10, Dominika Offner 9 and Chloe Bloom 8.

Both division one teams host the Newcastle Hunters on Saturday, with the men’s game at 12 noon and the women’s game at 2pm.

The men then play the Inner West Bulls in Ryde on Sunday, whilst the women host the Hornsby Spiders at 1pm at the PVRSC.

There are seven women’s teams in contention for the playoffs and Penrith need to win at least one game to guarantee a playoff berth.

There are nine men’s teams still in contention and the Panthers need to not only win both of their remaining games but have other game results fall in their favour.

The division two men were also in action against the Sea Eagles on Sunday and came from behind early in the game for a stirring 72-65 win.

Hey hey hey, it’s an old Hunter bus stop

All Aboard: Newcastle artist Trevor Dickinson’s depiction of a bus stop at Maitland.
Nanjing Night Net

See this artwork. It reminds us of the old cartoon Fat Albert.

D’you remember that show? “Hey hey hey, it’s Fat Albert. And I’m gonna sing a song for you….”

This bus stop used to be at Maitland railway station. Trevor Dickinson created a popular artwork of the structure.

It’s something about the style and colour of the art that triggered this connection to Fat Albert.

We freely admit we could bethe only person in the world to make this link.

Anyhow, we should stop daydreaming and do some work.

This artwork is actually Newcastle artist Trevor Dickinson’s depiction of a bus stop at Maitland.

ABC Newcastle producer Anthony Scully told Topics that Trevor had to “climb a fence to photograph the old bus stop structure at Maitland in a railway siding”.

“You can still find it on Google Maps but my sources tell me it’s not there anymore,” Anthony said.

He was hoping to film a segment with Trevor with the actual bus stop or a similar one.

If anyone knows where to find similar bus stops in the region, Anthony would like to know.

He had heard the Maitland bus stop was moved to a park in Sydney and being refurbished for use as a shelter.

Trevor’s artwork of the bus stop was “now famous in Canberra, adorning prints, postcards, tea towels and coffee mugs”.

McCloy’s SecretsProperty developer Jeff McCloy shared the secrets of his success at a Newcastle event on Monday night.

The former lord mayor was keynote speaker at a business seminar titled The Secrets To Property Success at The Lucky Hotel in Hunter Street.

Jeff kindly shared a list of his secrets before the seminar began.Here they are: Profit when you buy, not sell; buy the worst house in the best street;add value;have self belief;the market has seven-year cycles; do your homework; don’t buy when everyone else is buyingunless you see something they don’t; buyproperty as closeto a CBD as possible because values rise faster there than elsewhere; opportunity knocks softly; be very careful of managing yourdebt; ensure you have enough cash flow; have determination andnever give up; ask yourself if you could survive the worst that could happen in adeal; have a fall back position; maintenance of investment properties anddesign and colour are important; focus on the detail; if you just want to make money, it probably won’t work; if you want to do a good job and make money, it might; when you look at a building for sale, don’t see walls –think what it could be.

Quiz Show SecretsTopics reported last week about Russell Cheekand his story of winningSale of the Century in 1993.

Russell, who grew up in Newcastle,performed a theatrical show about the experienceoverfour nights last week at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Bolton Street.

We checked it out on Saturday night. Itwas brilliant, funny, nostalgic and revealing.

Russell won the big prize on the quiz show, collecting cash and prizes worth more than $313,000.To achieve this, he had to win eight consecutive shows.

In his performance at the theatre, he revealed that each episode of the quizshow wasfilmed 10 minutes apart.

Having won his seventh show, he was on a roll. The schedule for that day included one more show, which would have featured Russell going for the grand prize.

But at the last minute a producer told him they had a “technical problem” and couldn’t do the last show.So Russell had to fly back home to Sydney.It seemed like they were trying to “psyche him out”.When he returned to Melbourne for the final show, he overcame his nerves to claim victory.

We asked Russell if he believed the show organisers were trying to “rattle him” to prevent him winning the big prize.

He said he believed their story about the “technical problem”. Was it acoincidence that on his final show he came up against a woman who seemed to have a real chance of beating him?In the end, it didn’t matter. Russell blitzed her. The guy has an amazing brain.

B Grade:Ceduna Blues United (36) defeated by Thevevard (39)

Ceduna best: Georgia Lambeff

Thevenard best: Frew Halbert

A very close tussle was fought throughout the game with the lead changing many times. Thevenard had the first 5 goals on the scoreboard in both the 1st and 2nd quarters before CBU could score. For each quarter CBU caught up and levelled at each break. Third quarter saw a role reversal with CBU scoring the first 5 goals before Thevenard could register one. Thevenard, with good defensive pressure were able to level the score at 3/4 time. The last quarter was set for a good showdown. Thevenard applied the pressure defensively and on the scoreboard with some impressive play, which gave them the lead at the final whistle.

C Grade – Team 1:Ceduna Blues United 1 (31) defeated by Thevenard (37)

Ceduna Best: Amy Norsworthy

Thevenard Best: Dakota Nicholls

The first quarter pressure was strong by both teams resulting in a one goal lead by Ceduna Blues at quarter time. In the second quarter, Thevenard’s pressure intensified and the pace quickened. Thevenard led by 4 goals at half time. In the third quarter, Blues changed their line up and pressure continued by both teams resulting in some unforced errors. Blues won the quarter by a goal, closing the gap to three, Thevenard’s way. Blues had another change at three quarter time, yet Thevenard goalies remained shooting accurately and continued to apply pressure down the court. Thevenard won the quarter by 3 goals. Final scores were31 to 37 Thevenard’s way.

Thevenard Best: Remi Watson and Kaitlin Kavanagh

Blues started well capitalising on several loose balls and turnovers to have a 12 goal lead at quarter time.

Excellent pressure in defence created plenty of opportunities for the blues midcourt to provide the hard working goalies with extra opportunities to extend the lead throughout the second quarter.

Thevenard fought back hard in the second half of the match with their goalies shooting accurately and their midcourt and defence working well to bring the ball down the court,but blues hung on to win by 18

Ceduna Best: Kayla Gurney

Thevenard Best: Molly Inglis

A great competitive game by both sides today. First quarter saw both teams creating very quick play which resulted in many simple mistakes. By second quarter both teams seemed to have settled and began playing their own game. Thevenard’s goalies were moving very well around the goal ring and were being fed to by their attackers well – leaving CBU defences on the back foot a number of times. Half time scores were CBU 35 to Thv 22.

CBU made some changes to their attack end and this was working well for them. The CBU goalies were working hard to beat their equally tall opponents, and the passes coming from the attackers were perfectly positioned. Last quarter saw CBU’s defensive pressure really lift, particularly in the goal circle. Was a great game to watch and great sportsmanship from both sides.

Nanjing Night Net

Sydney University stole victory from the jaws of defeat on Saturday when they overran a gallant Redland to win a thrilling NEAFL contest by nine points at Blacktown.

The Bombers led for most of the match before the lead changed four times in an epic last quarter, which saw the students come out on top 8.12 (60) to 7.9 (51).

With their season on the line, Redland made their intentions known from the opening bounce when Nick Weller and Blake Grewar combined for the first two goals.

The Bombers went into quarter-time 13 points clear as the students soon went up a gear, reducing the margin to seven within a minute of the second through Rising Star nominee Michael Manteit.

Redland were held goalless for the term as Sydney Uni booted 2.4 to hit the front by two point at half-time.

A pair of goals from Bombers forward James Rayner restored the lead for the Bombers deep into the third as they held on to a two-point lead at the last change to set the match up for a tense finish.

The students were first to strike through Lewis Stevenson as the two sides traded blows for the first 20 minutes of the quarter.

It took consecutive goals from Kany Murphy, followed by young gun Sam Fong at the 25-minute mark, to push the Students over the line.

They were led brilliantly by defender Tim Barton, Tom Ayton, Aaron Day, with midfielders Fong (20 disposals), Stevenson (25 disposals and seven clearances) and ruckman Spencer Krochmal also damaging.

Grewar was outstanding for the Bombers with 34 disposals, 10 clearances and five inside 50s. Rising Star nominees Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds (23 disposals) and Darcy Cameron-Reeves, plus defender Peter Yagmoor, Adrian Williams and ruckman Craig Malone were among their better players.

It was Sydney Uni’s first ever win over the Bombers in the competition, having lost by two points (2014), 10 (2015) and 24 (2016) in their only three encounters.

The students leaped into second place on the ladder by percentage with four rounds remaining.

The Bombers remain in seventh, but are now four points adrift of sixth spot after Southport’s win over Brisbane on Sunday.

They face eighth-placed Gold Coast in a must-win clash next Sunday to keep their finals hopes alive.

Lack of interest forces recess

filed under 南京夜网

Young and District Chamber of Commerce president Jim Cusack is hopeful the current recess is temporary and the Chamber gets back up and running.
Nanjing Night Net

In a big hit for local businesses, the Young and District Chamber of Commerce has been forced to go into recess.

The news is disappointing for Young businesses, but the Chamber has only gone into recess and not closed down permanently.

As such, an opportunity to revive the Chamber of Commerce in the future remains an option.

President of the Young and District Chamber of Commerce Jim Cusack said it was disappointing to go into recess, but it was the only viable option.

“Ideally the Chamber of Commerce would continue to operate, but that was not an option,” Mr Cusack said.

“Due to a lack of interest from local businesses, we decided to go into recess rather than shut the Chamber down.

“Last year, four directors stood down and we only received one nomination to fill those spaces.

“We did not have a retailer on the committee.

“The good news is that we haven’t closed it.

“The account is still there if people get interested and want to put the work in to get it back up and running,” he said.

The Chamber in its current format was established in 2007 and enjoyed some significant successes.

It was re-invigorated mid-2013 with a new president and group of directors coming onboard.

The year 2014 was particularly successful with well-attended Business Awards and a very positive Christmas shopping campaign.

Mr Cusack is hopeful under an amalgamated council, the Chamber may return to operation.

“I am hopeful the enthusiasm will return, possibly over a broader area which includes Young, Boorowa and Harden,” Mr Cusack added.

“We were in a similar situation three years ago when there was also a distinct lack of interest and involvement.

“We formed a vibrant and energetic committee which was very successful.

“Hopefully as the amalgamation of the three councils under the Hilltops banner gets settled, we can find enough interest in the communities to get back up and running again,” he said..

Adam and Neal end seal’s ordeal at Manyana

STUCK: A baby seal endured a week stuck in fishing line until Lake Conjola man Neal Cameron rescued it. Photo supplied. AN exhausted baby seal, estimated to have been trapped in fishing net for about a week at Manyana beach took about 30 seconds to find its way home without looking back, once freed.
Nanjing Night Net

One of its rescuers, Neal Cameron, said a tourist couple walking along the sand spotted what many people coming down the pathway to the beach missed for several days, even though they walked past close enough to touch the animal.

In its distressed state the creature had kept its head down and was well camouflaged under foliage beside the path.

In the recent big stormy seas it had washed up after becoming entangled in some sort of fishing net, possibly a keeper’s bag, which had then snagged on a small tree.

Neal Cameron from Lake Conjola and mate Adam Williams from Wandandian were also on the beach, so the couple walking told them of the seal’s plight.

“The beach walkers asked Neal and I to help,” Mr Williams said.

“When we found him he was pushed back up into the scrub on the shoreline, with the green fishing net around his head and torso, and was quite distressed.”

Mr Cameron had some gloves and a fishing knife.

“We were able to free him from the treeline first and then from the rest of the fishing net,” Mr Cameron said.

“It was pretty stroppy, snarling at us to start with, but we held it tight to immobilise it and lifted it up so it couldn’t get any traction with its flippers on the sand.”

Once Neal’s final knife stroke cut the seal free, instinct immediately kicked in.

“He slapped his way back to the ocean, not once did it turn around and say thanks,” Mr Williams said.

“We estimated the seal might have been there for well over a week, with the recent large swells we’ve had.”

“It looked like an Australian fur seal, which is commonly found along the NSW coastline.”

Seal story goes viral

THE web video story of the baby seal tangled in a net has featured in Sea Shepherd’s Marine Debris Campaign Australia.

The video, shot on Manyana Beach by Adam Williams of his mate Neal Cameron cutting the stranded seal free after it was trapped for several days, got a massive response online.

More than 666,000 people have viewed the video on the Milton Ulladulla Times Facebook page, it has reached 1.8 million people’s news feeds and drawn almost 300 comments.

All ended well for the seal, after it apparently washed up in recent heavy storms and the net that had ensnared it in the ocean then caught around a shrub in the Manyana dunes.

Stroppy to start with, the moment the final stroke of Mr Cameron’s fishing knife freed it, it flapped straight to the waterline within 30 seconds and was gone.

Liza Dicks, Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign coordinator said the survival from the net was great news.

“But thousands of ocean creatures around the planet are not so lucky.

They become helpless and often die,” Ms Dicks said.

“Marine debris like discarded fishing nets, line, and tackle cause a slow, long, lonely and painful death to so many marine wildlife species.”

Ms Dicks told the Milton Ulladulla Times their current campaign started in February, included Plastic Free July, and so far had conducted more than 52 clean ups around Australia, and removed more than 170,000 pieces of debris.

Sea Shepherd’s website says debris can cause injury or death through drowning, injury through entanglement, internal injuries, and starvation following ingestion.

The website also warns that consumers of seafood digest toxins absorbed in man-made debris plastic or fibrous material now present in large percentages of fish.

“We try to educate as much as we can about this devastating threat to our oceans, which is increasing daily,” Ms Dicks said.

“We must keep our oceans safe for the wildlife that live in them.

The change starts with us.”

Debutantes raising money and looking pretty

SOCIAL DEBUT: Ebony Gallagher,Abby Sharman,Sarah Byrne,Sarah Walmsley,Molly Garth Emily Walmsley,Emily Shannon,Amy Kempton front Bree Simpkins and Maddy Petersen absent Claudia Campbell.ELEVEN YOUNG Glen Innes girls will put their best dress and dancing shoes on and step out into society on August 20 at the Glen Innes and district services club.
Nanjing Night Net

The Glen Innes charity Debutante ball will be an event not to be missed on the local social calendar.

The young debutantes will also be raising money for Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited genetic condition that alters the way salt is transferred in and out of cells causes mucus to be very thick and sticky and to build up in the organs. It mainly affects the lungs, digestive system and the sweat glands and is the most common life shortening, recessive genetic condition in Australia.

In Australia a debutante ball symbolises the soon to graduate high school student stepping out into the young adult world.

Even spokeswoman Elizabeth Walmsley said traditionally the girl asks the boy to the ball that includes dinner, speeches and ballroom dancing as major parts of the evening.

“We are going with tradition and 11 young ladies will be stepping out into society on the night,” she said.

“Whilst they are following tradition with the leadership of a very dedicated and small committee they are also using the night to raise money for a charity close to their hearts which is Cystic Fibrosis.

“People with CF often lead a life whilst relatively normal is also a rollercoaster of daily physio therapy and a lot of medications.”

Mrs Walmsley said a lot of hard work dedication and time goes into organising an effective night.

“The committee is working tirelessly trying to make the night as magical and memorable as they possibly can for the special young ladies and their partners whom have stepped up to the plate to make this night possible,” she said.

“We are now hoping that the Glen Innes community will also get behind the Ball and support us in our endeavours to firstly make the debutantes night a very special one indeed and raise some money.”

Tickets for the Glen Innes Charity Debutante ball will be available from August 1 at the services club reception and are $50 adults and $20 children under 12.

Muster means farmers on web

The launch ofnbn’s second satellite,Sky Muster(TM)II, scheduled for Octoberwill have major benefits for local farmers who are in internet blackspots.
Nanjing Night Net

Simon Barton and his family who live about 25kms from Wellington near Mt Bodangora and have never ending mobile and internet problems. He believes this is a game changer for his business and local farmers who have bad internet blackspots.

‘’We have been suffering in the past with internet non connection, the service dropping out, not performing at all so the new service will help our business here,’’

Taking off from French Guiana Space Centre in South America, the SKY musteris set to orbit 36,000km into the sky and is one ofthe world’s largest communications satellites, weighing in at 6,400kgs.

Following the successful launch ofnbn’s first satellite late last year,Sky Muster(TM)II publicity says it will provide additional datacapacity to support the delivery of the company’s world-leading satellite broadband service.

The technology will help bridge Australia’s digital divide for around 400,000 homes and businesses in regional andremote Australia by providing them with better access to distance online education and healthcare services aswell as the ability to run more efficient agribusinesses from our outback farms.

‘’The mobile blackspots we’ll keep plugging on with and trying to talk with pollies about these .But wedo use the internet everyday, we do online livestock selling, uploads video and photos of horses and stock to sell, internet banking, webinars and at last we can use the satellite to help business grow’’ Mr Barton said.

Alicia Garden, CEO of Grain Growers said it was time for her community to catch up with the rest of the country and she is excited.

“Grain Growers Limited represents grain farmers across Australia. Like any other business, grain farmersrequire fast, affordable, reliable internet connectivity to operate their enterprises to their potential. However,currently many farmers are not able to access connectivity comparable to their urban counterparts. Access to thenbn(TM)Sky Muster(TM)service signals a potential game-changer for grain growers. It will enhance connectivitystandards to improve the efficiency and profitability of Australian farming by changing the way farmers dobusiness – in particular their capacity to collect, analyse and apply agriculture data.”

STARTLED diners witnessed a smash-and-grab burglary in Hamilton early on Saturday night.
Nanjing Night Net

Detective Sergeant Mark James, of the Hamilton police crime investigation unit, said that an offender approached a jewellers about​7.30pm on Saturday in Hamilton’s Gray Street and punched a hole in a window.

He then reached in and stole a handful of rings before running off.

“The restaurant across the road was full at the time and there were two women coming out of Subway after getting dinner only a couple of metres from where the smash-and-grab took place at the time,” he said.

“The offender has cut himself in the process of committing the crime and there is security camera footage that’s being examined by police members.

“Items from the store were discarded nearby and forensic examinations are being conducted in relation to the crime scene and the discarded items.”

​Detective Sergeant James​ said the offender was wearing bone-coloured shorts and a white T-shirt over the top of a black jacket.

“He’s raced off with a handful of rings but the potential loss to the business could have been far greater,” he said.

​”The offender would best be described as disorganised and desperate. Anyone with information about the crime is requested to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the Hamilton police station.

“We’re looking for someone who was wearing shorts on Saturday night who has suffered a cut to his hand or arm.”
