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.

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.”

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.”
