Versatile: Silverchair bassist-turned-entrepreneur Chris Joannou and Chris Johnston put the final touches on their grand vision for The Edwards.THERE are few things quite assatisfying as slotting the final pieces into a puzzle that you have laboured over lovingly.

That moment of relish is fast approaching for Chris Joannou and Chris Johnston, as the remaining elements of their dream for The Edwards are set to fall into place.

Since the cafe, restaurant and bar opened in Newcastle’s west end a little over twoyears ago, The Edwards has evolved to include a coin-op laundry, a shop stocking vinyl records, and a workshop where one can buy a custom-made motorcycle from local craftsman Liam Butler.

In a nod to the site’s history, there is also a laundrette,and The Impossible markets fill the space monthly.

But at a celebrationon August 5, Joannou and Johnston will draw back the curtain on the venue’s latest offering, a beer garden and an intimate front bar, effectively book-ending their grand plan and vision for the site.

The new beer garden will offer a more casual drinking and dining experience, as well as space for functionsand community events.

The friends and business partners had always envisioned creating a multi-layered venue with different zones offering different experiences at The Edwards.

Their pioneering efforts have helped to resuscitateand restore confidence in the west endby showing what is possible when armed with passion and plenty of nous.

“We’ve alwaystried to look beyond offering just a cold beer and a burger, and really tried to create something where you could comethree times in the sameweek and not have the same experience,” Joannou says.

Alongside the dining and bar experience, they also wanted the space to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit in Newcastle.

“There are so many great makers of things in this town, from music to art to bikes and leather goods,” Joannou adds.

The Edwards’ new logo is symbolic of how the venue has evolved and changed to offer visitors a broad range of options and opportunities.

“It has taken alot of cues from the original logo, but as we’ve evolved, it’s a reflection of how the space has moved on as well,” Johnston says.

Digger Day, in its fifth year,raises funds to support returned veterans. As always, thanks to the co-ordinating efforts of Rick Meehan, it was a fantastic day out for all involved with the armed forces, as well as an opportunity for Shoalhavenrugby to showcase its game against local foe, Kiama.

The day also markedTui Aberahama’s 200thgame for the Shoalhaven Rugby Club.

Kiama first grade are a few places above Shoals on the competition ladder and played with great purpose, resolve and style to win the game by 26 points to 10. They were however made to work hard for every point they scored, as Shoals again put on a defensive display that won the hearts of the large crowd. Down but never out captures the spirit of Shoals rugby.

Kiama ran with a solid wind behind them in the first half and with a glut of possession worked their way to a 19 points to nil lead at the break. They scored three unanswered tries in the half.These came in 10 minute intervals but only after Shoals’ forwards and backs constantly turned them away from the try line. Possession told in the end and Kiama was able to turn possession into points when their backline finally stretched Shoals’ line that one player too many.

Shoals returned to the field in the second half and with an even share of the ball won the half by 10 points to 7.

Kiama ended up scoring tries simply because they were good enough to retain the ball for long periods and then finally launch some great backline play to carry them across the line.Although starved of possession in the first half Shoals did get some scoring opportunities.

One of their better ones came from their dynamic and free running centre, Jack Watts, who carved through several Kiama defenders from the half way line and broke into the clear. He looked certain to score but was run down by Kiama’s pacey winger just before the try line.

Shoals had more of the ball in the second half and using the heavily gusting wind to advantage ran in two tries to one to capture the half. They scored their first at the 10 minute mark, when Jack Watts finally got his reward for an all-round great game as he carried several Kiama defenders on his back and forced his way over.

They scored their second try just a few minutes later when, after a great run by Tim Lovett, a few pick and drives by the forwards, the ball was spun out to Stu Scibberas on the wing and he raced over in the corner. Conversions were not on the menu due to the windy conditions.

Next weekend is a competition bye.

Shoals return to Rugby Park for their final home game on Saturday,August 6 against Bowral.

Close attention needed to solve rural crime

Rural crime statistics show the days of being able to trust everyone in country areas have gone, sadly.

From thefts of firearms,stockand equipment totrespasssing byillegal hunters, these offences are emerging as a significant problem for the agricultural industry.

It is happening out west, but it is also happening in close proximity to ourcities and towns in the Central West,as recent break-ins show.

It is a problem severe enough for the government to launch an inquiry earlier this year.

In forums organised and promoted by the NSW Farmers’ Association, the review heard from hundreds of farmers across the state about increasing concerns regardingrural crime.

Key problems identified by members included resources and capabilities of police to respond to crime, the penalties associated with the crime, and the infrequency with which strong penalties were handed down to offenders.

With those reports in mind, the peak body has formulated new policy calling on the NSW government to take a number of actions to try to curb rural crime.

The association passed a motion calling for the government to provide additional funding and staffing for rural police stations, particularly so they can attend the out-of-hours calls that are inevitably associated with crime on farms.

It has also called for a minimum mandatory fine of $5500 for trespass.

It would be bad enough to have strangers running amok in a place of business, which is what a farm is.

But what is worse is people trespassing and hunting on the properties that are home to farming families.

People need to be able to feel safe on their properties and go about in peace to make their living from the land.

Police are working hard on this and have made some good breakthroughs, but to have more officers out and about could only help act as a deterrent.

More personnel deployed may also lead to more cases solved.

And tougher penalties have value has a specific deterrent to the people caught, as well as a general deterrent to others in the community.

It’s also something to which we can all make a contribution – keep an eye out for anything unusual, report offences and lock up your property.
