Fines to tackle Straddie parking problems

Dec 20 2018 Published by under 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Cars line up waiting to get on to the barge over Christmas. STRADBROKE Island residents have called on barge company Straddie Ferries to put up signs limiting the amount of time people can park at the Dunwich barge terminal.

The company said it was working with Redland City Council to allow council officers to issue fines for illegally parked cars at the Junner Street terminal car park.

When council takes over patrolling the car parking, fines for exceeding the time limits will be issued in line with council local bylaws.

Before that can happen, a Stradbroke Ferries spokesman said the free parking site would have to be zoned a regulated parking area.

“Stradbroke Ferries has listened to the residents of North Stradbroke Island at their own initiative has entered into the process of a managed car park by working with council,” a spokesman said.

“While there is no immediate date from council to start with regulated parking, Stradbroke Ferries is planning as soon as possible.”

Signs for varying time limits will be erected with the maximum limit in some spots being 24 hours.

The barge and ferry company said residents would be told in advance of the changes and given faire warning.

The company also promised that parking spots would not be reduced when council took over regulating the site.

“We would expect parking to be more readily available due to long-term parkers going elsewhere,” the company said.

Roseanne encompasses good health

Dec 20 2018 Published by under 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for the Singleton and Upper Hunter communities as they now have access to a new specialised health service assisting those living with illness and injury to function better and live well.

Roseanne Baxter is the owner of the new facility, Encompass Therapy, and has lived and worked most of her life in regional communities.

ENCOMPASS THERAPY: Roseanne Baxter will open her business this July.

Because of this, she has seen first-hand through the experiences of both family and clients the challenge of accessing quality and timely health care in these areas.

Roseanne believes that effective services should be available to all regardless of where they live and is opening Encompass Therapy to offer holistic rehabilitation services to the local community.

With over twenty years of experience working as a private practitioner,Roseanne’s had a vision of working with those who have suffered from cancer.

“Living in a rural and regional area, there isn’t many facilities available for people who experience diseases such as breast cancer,” she says.

“As an Occupational Therapist, I believe that our ability to engage in meaningful activity is at the core of our health and well being.

“How we function in our world is related to the “fit” between what we can do and what our environment asks us to do.

“This drives my treatment approach as I aim to encompass all aspects of the client to improve their “functional fit” to their desired lifestyle.”

As well as offering rehabilitation services for general soft tissue and work related injuries, Roseanne has a particular passion for working with people living with cancer, lymphoedema and other after-effects of cancer treatment.

Many cancer survivors experience reduced function and quality of life long after their cancer treatment has finished.

In seeing her Encompass Therapy vision come to life, Roseanne was hugely assisted by the Enterprise Facilitator Enterprise funded by Coal & Allied.

Through this program Roseanne was able to be put into contact with people who could help her facilitate the start of her business.

The Enterprise Facilitator Enterprise program is based on the work of the Sirolli Institute. The program has already resulted in the launch of another successful business the Furniss Utebox.

That is the aim of this program to assist people who have ideas about establishing and building a small businessbased in the UpperHunter, said Coal & Allied’sMat Goddard.

Encompass Therapy will open its doors this July, with the clinic based at 1/1 Civic Avenue, Singleton.

TAFE teacher calls it a day

Dec 20 2018 Published by under 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Kempsey TAFE teacher John Myers has retired after almost 34 years. He is pictured with teachers Richard Griffiths and John Thompson. WELL-respected teacher John Myers has retired from Kempsey TAFE after almost 34 years.

Mr Myers hadhis last day at the campus onThursday,June 23 where he was farewelled by staff and students.

Starting his career as anapprenticeat the state dockyards in Newcastle, John later enrolled at Glendale TAFEtocomplete his pressure welding tickets. While there, John wasoffered a part-time teaching position.

Thatled to him beingoffered a full-time position at theKempsey campus where he started in February of1983 after he and his wife Sue relocated from Newcastle.

“Theoriginal idea was to come here for a year or two but 33 and a half years later we’re still here,” he said.

“I think we’ve just enjoyed the lifestyle and once we made friends here and settled.”

Reflecting, Mr Myers said the most rewarding part has been seeing his students progress.

“Seeing them go through and mature and gain employment and start their own businesses.Just the way we’ve changed lives with apprenticeships. Giving unemployed people their confidence back and seeing them realise their worth,” he said.

“Often we get people who may not excel at school and then when they find something they’re passionate about we find there’s a big change.

“Yourpart of the ‘hidden curriculum’ I suppose. Your teaching them other life skills along the way.”

Over the years, John says the campus has gone fromstrength to strength.

“When Ifirst started we had a very small workshop, now our department is much bigger,”he said.

“Also thetake up of apprentices. We only taught stage one originally. Now we teach all three.”

Mr Myers says he is “extremely worried” about the future of TAFE.

“It needs to be continually funded andI just don’t think the current government is funding it properly at the moment,” he said.

“Governments of all persuasions are short sighted when they do things to save a little bit of money and not realise the end result.”

He paid credit tofellow teachersLloyd Ray, John Thompson and Richard Griffiths and former teacher Dave Rousefor their continued support.

He islookingforward to spending time with his family –his wife, two daughters and five grandkids and getting back into his hobby of powerlifting.

Mare’s record goes on the line

Dec 20 2018 Published by under 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Well-bred mare Our Lansdowne Road will be out to continue her love affair with the Dubbo Paceway on Saturday night.

The Bathurst-trained four-year-old has an overall record of six wins and 12 placings from 42 starts, but saves her best efforts for the trip west.

From seven starts at the Dubbo track she has won four races and finished third on three occasions.

On Saturday night she will line up from a good draw in the West Dubbo IGA Pace (2120m).

Trainer-driver Greg Rue will be in the sulky behind the Ponder (USA) x Lips To Kiss mare, who hails from a family he has had plenty of success with over many years.

Lips To Kiss is owned by good clients of the Rue stable, and over the years her progeny have all been named following the same theme –rugby stadiums.

Twickenham was the first of her progeny, with the Nikalong Shadow gelding winning 23 race and almost $100,000 in prizemoney.

Then came Cardiff Arms (by River Khan), which amassed close to $60,000 in prizemoney from a career that netted 15 victories.

Murrayfield, by Aces N Sevens (USA)didn’t have quite the same amount of success but Art Major (USA) gelding Parc De Princes, named after a Parisian stadium, was another that won multiple races and broke the two-minute mile rate.

Our Lansdowne Road is the only other foal of Lips To Kiss to make it to the track and she is building quite a good reputation.

Best-known as a mare with a strong finishing burst, she is generally suited in races where there is some tempo up front and she is able to find her feet through the early stages.

From barrier three on Saturday night Rue will no doubt endeavour to have her close to the leaders but the race looms as an intriguing battle of tactics.

Despite there being only six runners, each of them have been prolific winners through their careers and Our Lansdowne Road is giving away plenty of race experience to her rivals.

Polemarker Loves The Show has won six races, Nathan Hurst’s handy pacer The Matrix is an 11-time winner, while Signory Shannon has passed the post first on 20 occasions.

Wendy Turnbull’s flashy black gelding Likeallofus has won 12 from 64 with 18 minor placings thrown in while the veteran of the field, Catch your breath, will be chasing win number 27 at start 125.

The West Dubbo IGA Pace (2120m)is race five on the seven-event card, which has drawn a good mix of runners from Dubbo and other parts of the central west.

The first race on the TAB program is scheduled to be run at 5:52pm while the last will leave the mobile at 8:45pm.

Land recalls a long history

Dec 20 2018 Published by under 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

A BEQUESTfrom the 19thcentury has become almost a land developmentlegacy for a long-time Jindera family.

WELCOME HOME: Kane Real Estate’s Julie Hayes and developer Margaret Wehner invite people into Pomegranate Estate, the release of a parcel that had been in Ms Wehner’s family for generations. Picture: MARK JESSER

Pomegranate Estate represents a newopportunity to buy lifestyle blocks but also the end of a lifelong association with theDrumwood Road site for present owner Margaret Wehner.

“I’ve lived in Jindera all my life and my family have been here for generations,” she said.

“This block was my grandmother’s inheritance, which was totally unusual because women were (then considered) of no value and never got left anything.

“It had her name on it and it was left specifically to my father.”

Ms Wehner’s late parents, Margary and Ern, who was known as Frosty, had been significantcontributors to Jindera during their lives.

“My dad was called the mayor of Jindera and they were both very strongly committed to the community,” she said.

“Mum was very heavily involved in the museum and the development and creation of the museum.They were both in every organisation there was in town.”

Pomegranate Estate, which measuredabout 20 hectares,had been a separate part of Ms Wehner’s farm that became less convenient for stock accessas the land around it built up with housing.

“I’dgo along and I’ll shut the gates and by the time I’ve got the cattle out on to the road and walked down here, they’re all open,” she said with a laugh.

A new council zoning determined the site to be rural lifestyle, allowing the development to offer blocksto suit.

Stage one, now available for sale,comprises seven lots of 4000sq m and a slightly largercorner blockof 4010sq m.

The choice oftitlecarriedon a business nameMs Wehner and her husband had used previously.

“We had a catering business for 10 years that was called Pomegranate Catering,” she said.

Kane Real Estate sales representative Julie Hayes said the site sat within walking distance of the township and included services such as electricity, gas, telephone, water and sewage.

“There’s been a lot of interest,” Mrs Hayes said.

“We possibly get three or four phone calls every day.

“A lot of them used to live here and now they’re wanting to move back to the area.”

Ms Wehner said although convenient, the location remained a little removed from Jindera’s centre.

“It’sa bit more rural, it’s got a nice aspect,” she said.

“You look around and you see trees.

“You don’t see otherbuildings and development.”
