Glen Innes Rugby league stalwart Pat Lonergan has called a meeting for those in town who want to see the Magpies flying in 2017.

Mr Lonergan has asked for people that are interested in helping the club to reform a senior team for next season’s competition to meet at the Services club on Tuesday July 26 at 7.30 pm.

Lonergan said that reforming a viable committee will be on the agenda.

“We do need people who are interested in helping out for next season and that will be high on the agenda for the meeting,” he said.

“We need everyone in town who has an interest in reforming the Magpies to be at the meeting.

“If we get a viable amount of numbers we will look to elect a committee and fill office bearer positions.”

Mr Lonergan said the Magpies have had a meeting with country rugby league to discuss ongoing issues.

“We have talked about issues such as travel in the group 19 competition,” he said.

“We also canvassed the exorbitant costs relating to insurance and other essential items to run a club.

“The Country Rugby League has said they will visit Glen Innes to try and sort out the issues that the Magpies and a lot of other clubs within the group 19 competition have identified.

“We will be talking about all of these things at the meeting and we hope that we can get the Magpies back and strong for the 2017 season.”

A Currans Hill resident group feels its concerns have been heard after a successful meeting with government officials and Benedict Recycling on Friday.
Nanjing Night Net

The residents are opposed to Benedict’s proposed $4.5 millionrecycling plant on Anderson Road,Smeaton Grange, which is on exhibition for community feedback until August 26.

The proposed site would process a variety of material including, glass, metal, rubber andpaper, but would not accept hazardous materials including asbestos.

Resident spokeswomanChris Harrissaid the meeting with Benedict’s general manager Ian Collier, representatives from NSW Planning and Environment, the Environmental Protection Authority and Camden MP Chris Patterson was informative and constructive.

“The meeting helped to clarify information about myths and facts about the application,” she said.

“[Our] primary concerns regarding the proposed facility will be the potential impact on surrounding neighbours, business and schools.

“If the proposal is approved it is important that residents and business have had the opportunity to list their concerns.”

Mr Collier was also pleased with the meeting and was glad to have a chance to answer resident questions.

“It was a very, very constructive meeting and it gave us an opportunity to respond to resident concerns and take them on board,” he said.

Mr Collier said it was important for residents to remember that Benedict was not new to the recycling business and had plenty of experience at other sites.

He said the company would look into whatever adjustments could plausibly be made to the proposal to meet relevant resident concerns.

Mr Patterson said he also had some concerns with the proposal “as it stands” and would like to see “a number of issues” addressed.

He said any resident who is concerned with the development should contact him or make a submission.

To make a submission visitmajorprojects.planning.nsw.gov419论坛or write to Department of Planning and Environment, Attn: Director –Industry Assessments, GPO Box 39, Sydney, NSW, 2001.

Holiday tennis clinics nurture local talent

The Peter Cole Tennis Academy recently held a series of holiday clinics as part of their junior development program.
Nanjing Night Net

ANYONE FOR TENNIS? Local tennis coach Peter Cole

The clinics were held in Glen Innes, Guyra and Tenterfield with over 124 juniors participating throughout the holidays.

Mr Cole said the sessions help juniors with their social skills and wellbeing as well as primarily focusing on their technique and speed and agility.

“The clinics are a good way for children to have some fun but also if we identify some talent we can nurture that,” he said.

“Tennis is a game that you can learn and get better at, but we do find a good number of children have a natural hand and eye coordination that suits the game.

“The Glen Innes children enjoyed themselves and we did see some good talent amongst the participants.”

Mr Cole said the clinics would not have been such a success without the participation of local parents.

“Many thanks go to all parents who supported our clinics, without their help and support these camps would not be held,” he said.

“I would also like to thanks my junior coaches Olivia, Angus, Kaleb, Steph, Kasey and Andrew.

“Many of the kids commented that they enjoyed getting instruction from an adult as well as people their own age.”

WinterDark blue clouds rolling
Nanjing Night Net

Wind howling

Leaves rustling

Trees hugging boughs close

As winter bullies

The last gold crisp thread of carpet

To the ground.

Total colour

Rainbow from the sky

Falls to earth

Red, brown, gold and yellow


Clouds clap

Rains fall

Chill sets

Blue clouds rolling

Wind howling

Trees lie brave and bare

A soft white carpet

Falls from the sky


Soft soft silence.

Winter’s rest.

Bag Lady 2She sits on Manly’s promenade

And whistles while she works

Sewing, sewing,

Busy, busy,

Seams across her skirt.

Waves crash on the sands

The wind ships her feeble dirge

To blend with the seagulls

Fighting for off cast chips

And crumbs of bread.

She sits and whistles

SewingAnd drags her skirt around

Her ragged frame

To sew another seam

A seagull pecks

At a knob of mouldy bread

Protruding from her perished bag,

Squawking, fighting, bickering.

“Shoo” she says:

The lyrics of her song.

Wild dog baiting push

filed under 南京夜网

Wild dog attacks caused Orangeville farmer Eric Rudd to lose45 sheep in just eight weeks recently.
Nanjing Night Net

The farm is the 96-year-old’s livelihood and the loss was devastating.

But now Mr Rudd has joined Great Western Sydney Local Land Services’ campaign to bait wild dogs.

The campaign, which runs alongside the service’s fox eradication program, is largely localised to the Orangeville, The Oaks and Oakdale areas, as they are most at risk of attack.

Mr Rudd is thrilled with the results of the wild dog baiting for his farm.

“It’s been about seven months since the last attack on my stock,” the farm said.

“The efforts of Local Land Services in training me to bait and help monitor wild dog activity on my property has been second to none.

“Without the ongoing support I truly believe wild dogs would have put me out of business by now.”

The service’s senior biosecurity officer Lee Parker said it was important to note that the dogs being bated were not domesticated.

“These are true wild dogs,” he said.“They’re not dingoes, but they’re descendants of dingoes.It’s not anyone’s pets that we’re baiting.”

Mr Parker said wild dogs were common in rural areas and encouraged all local landholders to join the campaign, which already has 30 residents on board.

Residents involved attend information sessions where they are taught have to legally bait the dogs.

Aside from baiting the dogs, the campaign encourages residents to install motion detection cameras and contact Local Land Services whenever they see a collar-less dog wandering the area.

“We will never be able to completely eradicate wild dogs, but we can manage them to reduce numbers,” Mr Parker said.

“We want to stop them spreading further into the suburbs. The aim is to get them where they are now.”

Mr Rudd urged his neighbours to take part in the campaign.

“This is a whole of community problem and it is up to us as landowners to do our bit whether by doing the training to legally bait or by just reporting wild dog sightings,” he said.

THEREhas been a suggestion from local Fire Authoritiesrepresentatives in creating a fire break on the western side of Henty. Apparently a fire break, of at least 30 metres wide, is to be constructed. It has created some discussion and it will be interesting to see if the plan is accepted.
Nanjing Night Net


THE AustralianArmy Band Kapookais appearing in the Henty Civic Centre (Community Club), this comingSaturday evening. Their performance has been organised by Henty’s Rotary Club and the profits from the event will go to Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre. This centre still requires significant fundraising to complete the outfitting of the accommodation and care rooms.

A number of our community have already had the need of the services of the centre. Children from our school bands have been presented with a free ticket; provided they are accompanied by a paying adult.

Over the past month the Rotary Club has also run a raffle for double passes to the Albury Gold Class cinema and a collection of 5c coins at various spots around the town has raised in excess of $300.

Added to the donations will be half the proceeds of last Sunday’s Lutheran Ladies’ Guild casserole luncheon. This has been a concerted effort by the Rotary Club and the aggregate sum will be recognised as a Community effort. Bookings for the concert can be made at Dales Electrical. This is an experience that can be enjoyed by all ages as it not all marching music.

The band enjoy the opportunity to play a wide range of music, not just traditional marches. It is hoped everyone in Henty will have participated in some way; fundraising ends July, 2016 for this round of activities.
