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.

Production a sad story that needs to be told

by admin on October 20th, 2018

filed under 南京夜网

Newcomers to Bay Theatre Players’ lighting and sound booth, Lyn Benn and Julian Crosby, in operation for Forget Me Not. ONE of the comments from an audience member at Bay Theatre Players’ current production, Forget Me Not,was “Ineeded to see something like that and I feel better for it”.
Nanjing Night Net

The show, which officially opened last Friday, is certainly a sad story, but says director, Jenny Kohlhagen, “one that needs to be told”.

In answer to the question, “why did I choose this play?”she said, “I enjoy theatre that is thought provoking, and Forget Me Notsets us to thinking about the societies in which we live and the decisions our governments and administrators, and at times our administrators alone, make on behalf of the citizens they serve”.

“Tales such as these, based on multiple real-life stories, quite rightly encourage us to question the motivations and behaviours of institutions that we blindly accept will do the right thing by those amongst us who are most vulnerable.”

Forget Me Nottells the story of Gerry who was part of a British Government child migration scheme which sent more than 3000 British children to Australia with a promise of warmth, fresh air, abundant food and opportunity.

Instead they arrived to deprived institutions where neglect and abuse were the norm.

Jenny remembers a family friend who used to talk about his time on a “farm school”.

She says, “how I wish I could go back through time and ask him more about his early years”.

“When he was still alive, I was, along with most people my age, ignorant of the child migration scheme.

“I was stunned to discover that the last child migrant arrived in Australia as recently as 1970.”

In 2010 the UK and Australia made a formal apology to the children.

Then British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, observed that from the 1920s to the 1960s 150,000 children were torn from their families and sent thousands of miles from home on the promise of a better life.

He noted that an Australian Royal Commission had taken evidence of serious abuse of children both in Australia and in residential homes within the UK prior to being sent to the other side of the world.

He added: “this confirms the validity of the apology and warns us to be ever vigilant in safeguarding vulnerable children”.

Jenny says to her audiences: “Enjoy. And reflect a while upon what we human beings are capable of doing to the children who place their trust in us”.

Tickets are available from Bargain Box on 4472 5984.

Woorinen’s Joel Donnan gets a kick away amid pressure from Nyah Nyah West United’s Rhys Burge.THE Nyah Nyah West United camp lamented theirmisfortune in having seven of their best 22 missingfor this important game, and their apprehensionproved to be well justified as they just did not havethe firepower to match the surging Tigers.
Nanjing Night Net

The game was a torrid affair from the first ball upwith the Demons throwing Alex Erlandson into theruck and parking Joel Walsh at the spearhead, andboth these moves brought a modicum of success asthe former was leaping over Tiger ruckman ArnoldKirby.

The Tigers, however, were well and truly primed foraction and their running brigade were a little morecomposed early, particularly in the defensive half.

Jamie Nicholas led the back six with some verypositive play under pressure for the Woorinen Tigers,while Kyle Steicke continued his great defensivework from last week.

That great drive from the back gave the Tigerrunners many opportunities to attack managing toscore in a quarter where goal opportunities were arare commodity.

At the first break they enjoyed an eight-point bufferand that set up the next two terms for a desperatestruggle where tackling and turnovers became thenorm.

The long break saw the margin still eight points infavour of the visitors but in total only three majorshad been registered for the second term, an indicationof the intensity of the action.

The third term delivered a little more of the samebut the tackling and turn overs continued to the detrimentof the game as a spectacle but the big crowdhung in waiting for something to happen.

And something did happen.

The Tigers still had the run for which they arerenowned and, true to their reputation as strongfi nishers, scored a very creditable three goals to nil inthe final term.

While Lauder picked up a grade win in February, all others were first time winners at Nowra Velo events in 2016.

As Alice Lauder led the way with points for the Hanlon Windows team,this gave them their first team win for the year with Scott Thompson, Aaron Coghlan, Aaron Lauder, Graham Johns, Frank Neri and Jo Chalain adding the tally.

The Bomaderry Vet Hospital/Coffeeliscious placed second and still hold a comfortable overall lead, as Hanlons sneak ahead of Optus, The Watts Factory and BaiMed Physio.

Tristan Ward’s win came at the end of a fast aggressive A grade race that saw the field splintered in the final 10 minutes.The field gradually reduced over the course of the event until only Thompson could go with a powerful surge by Ward.

The closest chasers into the final three laps was Coghlan and Jade Colligan (BVJ/Coffeeliscious), with Steve Crossman (Optus), Mark Astley and Godfrey Green (BaiMed) almost a lap behind.

Ward led into the final straight and held Thompson at a length over the line.

Coghlan and Colligan provided a close tussle to the line where Coghlan had the judges eye for third.

Nathan Crump (The Watts Factory), Paul Mackie (Optus) and Gavin Nethery (The Watts Factory) hit the line abreast for the closest sprint finish of the year in the B grade race where the decision went the way as noted.

Ian Kielly (BVH/Coffeeliscious) was the most active rider in C grade but his team mate, Chris Harrison took the win by a clear two lengths ahead of him in this event.

Graham Johns (Hanlons) finished third in a close tussle with Darren Pretious (BVH/Coffeeliscious). Alice Lauder took the D graders by surprise when she skipped away from the field half way through their race. Alice was out to 100 metres before a reaction came, with Brad Oaten chasing and getting close to closing the gap before easing up and returning to the bunch. Chalain put in a big effort over the last 800 metre lap to secure second, with Oaten taking third.The next race is theJack Hartnett Memorial handicap.

An expensive exercise in using other people’s cash

CRACKED TRACK: Jason Slattery has started a petition to get Eglinton Road fixed. Photo: NADINE MORTON 072216nmegoroad1FORMER British prime minister Margaret Thatcher once said that “socialism was great fun until you ran out of someone else’s money” or words to that effect.
Nanjing Night Net

I guess Bathurst Regional Council channelled those thoughts from the “Iron Lady” when it made the decision to purchase a property in McKell Street, West Bathurst in what mayorGary “Good News” Rush indicated was “the most expedient way to remedy the whole situation”.

In essence, council used over $450,000of ratepayers’ money to buy a house where it had previously approved a pool and privacy screens that an adjoining owner subsequentlyobjected to due to the lack of notification of the original development applications.

It resulted inJustice Rachel Pepper, in the Land andEnvironment Court, stating the decision was “irrational, perverse and bizarre”.Ouch.

So, doing a bit of rough maths, council wasted more than $200,000on legal fees fighting two separate subjective planning staffdecisions, which resulted in the embarrassing verbal flogging by Justice Pepper.

Now council has spent almost $500,000,including stamp duty and legals, to purchase the house that caused the drama with the intention, I assume, to pull down thepool.

So you can add another $100,000to the ratepayers’ expense for demolition as council can do nothing cheaply.Then council will have toresell the house without a pool for substantially less than the purchase price.

So all up, this debacle has cost ratepayers anywhere between $400,000and$500,000.

Oh well, look on the bright side, dear ratepayers:council hasmade some changes to the DA process as a result of this case “to reduce subjective judgements by planning staff”.

I ask again: where is the accountability within local government to ratepayers?

Finding middle groundTHE National Broadband Network (NBN) is on its way to Bathurst, with some residents receiving letters indicating that a node will be constructed at the front of their property.

Well, this is great news for the majority of Bathurstians, but it appears the NBN issomewhat inflexible in regards to the location of the node, as one Windradyne resident has discovered after being notified a node will be constructed essentially in the middle of her block -yes, dead centre.

It will be interesting to see where nodes will be located throughout the conservation area. I, too, want the NBN, but not an ugly onemetre-wide green box at my front door.

Overdue concernIT was great to see an Eglinton resident protesting about thesubstandard condition of themain arterial Eglinton Road.

This may become a regular occurrence in an attempt to focus council’s engineering department on a particular street.

Ratepayers in Toronto Street should be next to step in line.

Thumbs upTHE Macquarie River getting a good flush-out, resulting in Burrendong Dam filling to more than50 per cent.

Thumbs downCOUNCIL spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayers’ money to clean up a mess created by it.This money could have been used to sponsor the Rotary Young Drivers program for the next 20 years.

The Burleigh Heads Physical Culture Club workshop held at the Moree PCYC on July 2 and 4. THREE times a week women and girls from throughout the region come together for Physie, an all-in-one dance class.
Nanjing Night Net

Trainers from Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast made the journey to Moree to workshop with the girls aged 13 to opens on July 2, and for those aged four to 12 years on July 4.

“Lauren and Elise came from their prestigious club to help the girls with their technique,” head teacher Sam Cosgrove said.

“The girls covered a lot of stretching to help increase their flexibility, marching techniques and position to improve their routines.”

The first competition for the Moree Physical Culture Club willbe at the Speers Point Interclub in Newcastle August 7, where Moree is taking a bus load of girls.

“These Interclubs are in preparation for our Zone competition in Tamworth in October,”Sam said.

“With only ten weeks to go, the girls are working hard on their routines.”

Should the Champion Girl competitors receive a place at Zone, they qualify for Junior Nationals at State Sports Centre in Homebush.

“Interclubs are important to see how you are standing and a great practice before the big Zone competition,” Sam said.

The second Interclub will be held at the Runcorn Park Interclub in Brisbane featuring 400 competitors, where a small number of Moree girls will attend.

The Moree Physical Culture Club has 75 members ranging from four to 60 years-of-age, who come together every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

Physie has been around for more than 120 years and is popular nationwide with more than 200 clubs scattered throughout Australia.

Head teacher Sam Cosgrove said that anyone from four years-old can participate in Physie and fitness is not an issue, as Physie will help to improve coordination, rhythm, fitness, strength, flexibility andconfidence.

“It’s popular because it combines everything great about dance; jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip hop, lyrical as well as strengthening like Pilates,” Sam said.

“You get the chance to learn from all different styles of dance, and you have incredible opportunities to perform locally, in the zone and nationally.”

“The biggest of opportunities isbeing able to qualify to dance on the Opera House stage.”

Enrollment is available all year round for Moree Physie, with the focus for term onein learning the routines, term twois perfecting, and term three is competition and performance.

Hall funding granted

THE Tumby Bay District Council has received grant funding to install disabled toilet facilities in the Tumby Bay Soldier’s Memorial Hall.
Nanjing Night Net

OPEN DOOR: Tumby Bay District Council chief executive officer Trevor Smith said the new toilet facilities could mean increased hall patronage.

Member for Grey Rowan Ramseyannounced last week the council would get $6400 fromround two of the federal government’sStronger Communities Program.

The funding will go towardunisex disabled toilets inside the hall.

The funding will cover half of the $12,800 cost of the toilets, budgeted for in thecouncil’s Annual Business Plan.

The council’s chief executive officer Trevor Smith said this was a great result for the council and would ensure more people could use the hall in the future.

“We’re really pleased that it’s been successful,” he said.

“There were no disabled facilities at the hall and this will increase patronage at the hall by those groups who will benefit from the introduction of a disabled toilet facility.”

The hall has seen widespread use bythe community recently, includingtheTumby Bay Showboat Stars of the Futureshows held on July 9 and 10.

Mr Ramsey said he was delighted to see the council would be able to put in the facilities for its patrons.

“The Tumby Bay Soldiers Memorial Hall is an important facility in the coastal town and is used by many groups in the community and I congratulate the council on this initiative,” Mr Ramsey said.

“I was recently privileged to attend the Stars of the Future variety concert and am pleased that this funding will allow disabled facilities to be available for everyone who attends these fantastic community events.”

The Stronger Communities Programwas created to fund small capital projects in local communities within each of the 150 federal electorates.

The first round saw $150,000 provided to 19 projects across the Grey electorate.

The council has three other projects that require grant funding before they can continue –the Port Neill Foreshore Plan, sealing the Balumbah-Kinnaird Road and the Tumby Bay stormwater management plan.
