Comments Off on Central keeps SGL premiership dream alive

Clayton Crabbe is soiled in the contest by his West Augusta opponent Fraser Sinkinson.CENTRAL Augusta booked a place in the SGL A grade grand final with a tough 14-point win over West Augusta at Central Oval last weekend.

In warm conditions the Bloods held a slight lead at every change and held off a determined Hawks team to take the victory.

Neither side took the advantage early, with the even contest providing plenty of stoppages.

The Bloods’ Geoff Appleton started well then got forward and kicked the first goal of the match.

Centrals took a two-goal lead as Jared Reid made himself dangerous, but it didn’t last long as the Hawks quickly hit back.

They kicked two goals, one to Michael Curley and one to key forward Hayden Warren.

Madigan medallist Nic Collins was quiet in the first term as Dylan Baker gave him no space.

Blood Kristopher Crabbe kicked truly from a set shot to give Centrals a six-point lead late in the quarter as his side looked to take the ascendency.

Centrals kicked three early goals during the second term and looked like the much stronger team.

That was until halfway into the term when West surged back into the game.

The Hawks showed grit as they kicked the next three goals against the momentum, with Jordan Warren doing the damage with two terrific goals.

Central’s ruckman Clayton Crabbe kicked a goal late in the quarter giving gave the Bloods back a two-goal lead at halftime.

The Hawks made some positional changes and played excellent football after the main break.

Collins got running and broke free from his tag and gather numerous influential possessions and Jordan Warren, Justin Nunn and Joe Packard.

The changes provided a spark that saw West kick six goals for the quarter.

Parsons made the most of his chances and kicked three vital goals.

Centrals Clayton Crabbe kicked a second and Nic Callary launched long goal late in the quarter to give Centrals a five-point lead with one quarter remaining.

The last quarter was tense and entertaining.

West moved the ball forward quickly early in the quarter allowing Hayden Warren to soccer the ball through on the goal line to even the scores.

The next 10 minutes saw both clubs struggle to get the ball forward, before Appleton again stepped up for Centrals.

He got his hands on the ball and kicked truly from a set shot 30-metres out to give the Bloods a 10-point lead.

A new weapon against swooping magpies

Comments Off on A new weapon against swooping magpies

A new app has been designed to warn pedestrians of where they may be vulnerable to swooping Magpies in the local area.SPRING has arrived and with it protective and vicious magpies.

Everyone has their own tale of getting swooped but one man decided to do something about it.

A couple of years ago after getting swooped while riding his bike, Jon Clark got home and started searching the internet for information and perhaps somewhere to register the attack.

“I found a number of websites, mostly local government sites warning about magpies,” he said.

“I then came across the odd cycling club website with magpie swoops recorded, but nothing in my area and nothing across Australia.”

Magpie alert was born as a place where anyone across Australia can come and register their swoops to pre-warn others.

Users have reported more than 1500 attacks, with 198 resulting in injuries across Australia so far this year.

“This social website will allow you to track aggressive magpies in your area,” Mr Clark said.

“You can record an attack using Google Maps and warn others in your area.

“We will also publish your advice and experiences.”

Port Pirie and Whyalla have already got a couple of swoopings reported online.

As well as reporting where and how vicious the magpies in your area are, the website also has a collection of articles and stories about being swooped and prevention tips submitted by users.

The website has been given a makeover this year to make it more mobile friendly and with a responsive design.

“We don’t hate the birds we just don’t like them pecking us,” Mr Clark said.

To start reporting your magpie attacks sign up with to the website (magpiealert苏州美甲美睫培训学校) using Facebook, twitter or google accounts.

PHOTOS: SuppliedWILLSDEN Primary School celebrated Culture Week and Footy Colours Day last week.

Students wore colours representing their favourite football and soccer sides and also participated in cultural activities.

Acting Aboriginal Education Coordinator Kaitlin Taylor said the students joined in on a few different sessions throughout the day, including cultural games.

“Flinders block classes discussed what Culture means to them and made badges representing their ideas,” Ms Taylor said.

“They also made beaded jewellery which, in many cultures, is made to celebrate special occasions and there were sessions about Dreaming Stories held in the Library.

“The Spencer block students created dot painting, damper on the fire.

“We were very fortunate that Rahnee from Communities for Children and her team of helpers came in to work with our Spencer Block classes.”

Ms Taylor said there were many benefits in participating in the day for the students.

“Community is very important to Willsden Primary, the main benefit from celebrations like Culture Week is that students get to experience and discuss different aspects of their cultures and the cultures of others,” Ms Taylor said.

“All families were invited along to join in and celebrate the day with us.

“We had an opening ceremony/assembly where students received awards for the hard work they have been doing at school, and Miss Jess’s class shared their learning about Dreaming Stories and the school choir performed several songs.”

While the students and teachers were enjoying cultural activities they supported a good cause by wearing their footy tops.

Ms Taylor said gold coin donations were given by those wearing a top, with the money going towards the Fight Cancer Foundation.

“In total the Willsden School community raised $237, which is a fantastic effort.”

HOT FLICKS: NWA emerges from mean streets of LA

Comments Off on HOT FLICKS: NWA emerges from mean streets of LA

Straight Outta Compton in cinemas now.YOU don’t have to be an NWA fan to like Straight Outta Compton.

You don’t even have to follow rap or hip-hop, though it will mean more to you if you do.

It’s a well-made, well-acted movie that chronicles the historic rise and fall of late 1980s “reality rappers” NWA – Ice Cube, Dr Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella – from the mean streets of south Los Angeles to the top of the music world.

Directed by F Gary Gray, who directed Ice Cube in Friday, Straight Outta Compton is so much more than the hip-hop group’s history, tackling race issues, hatred of the police system and using music to make a political point.

The film’s final act is emotional, honest and raw.

It begins by introducing the three main players, Eric “Eazy-E” Wright (Jason Mitchell), a small-time drug-dealer; Andre “Dr Dre” Young (Corey Hawkins), an unemployed young father with a talent for spinning discs; and O’Shea “Ice Cube” Jackson (played by his real-life lookalike son O’Shea Jackson Jr), teenage lyricist.

The group, funded by Eazy-E, decides to start their own label Ruthless Records, puts out an EP with their “gangsta rap” sound, making an impact on youth dealing with the same daily problems and general poor standard of living conditions which the artists are very familiar with.

They catch the eye of manager Jerry Heller (Paul Giamatti), who promises to open doors and make their product “legit” in the music industry.

With costuming, fantastic casting and an incredible attention to detail, Straight Outta Compton has faithfully recreated a period of change in musical history.

Hawkins delivers a stand-out performance as Dr Dre, a character that doesn’t have the best lines or the verbal stoushes, but tells the story through his observation of those around him.

Dre’s eventual partnership with the volatile and downright unhinged Suge Knight – who in reality ran over a crew member during filming – brings a whole new level to Hawkins’ performance, and makes for the most suspenseful and unbelievable moments in the film.

Mitchell was the only member of the principal cast whose character is no longer alive and, as such, had the most pressure in accurately portraying Eazy-E – a task that he definitely met.

But it is watching Jackson portraying his own father that is the real highlight of Straight Outta Compton.

The young actor is the spitting image of Ice Cube and it is easy to forget that you’re not watching the man himself.

Straight Outta Compton is rated MA15+ and is in Hoyts cinemas now.

Dead women should not be political pawns

Comments Off on Dead women should not be political pawns

PAWN: Tony Abbott used domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty to boost his flagging image, while still cutting vital women’s services, according to Jenna Price.It’s January 2015. Tony Abbott is in deep hot water.This time it’s about announcing Prince Philip – that renowned old bigot – as a knight. The pushback from ordinary Australians is huge.

It even surprised me. I assumed it was only me furious with a scion of privilege for reintroducing these honours. Turns out it was everyone, even in Abbott’s own party.He turned to the one person he thought could redeem him. He turned to Rosie Batty.

A few days earlier, Batty had been named Australian of the Year. No one had heard of this Victorian mother until her son Luke was murdered in February 2013. Her extreme poise and resilience blew Australians away. For eight months, she campaigned hard on family violence and, for once, Australia seemed to be sitting up and taking notice.

The then prime minister had a meeting with Batty on Christmas Eve 2014. Peta Credlin, his chief of staff, was also there. He asked Batty what she thought might be a solution to the poisonous problem of violence against women and children.From that moment, there was little contact. Until Abbott was in deep trouble with the electorate. His decision to turn the focus away from his grovelling desire to suck up to royalty was done at the last possible minute.

Some have even described what happened in those few days as an ambush.The prime minister’s office rang Batty at the height of the public relations disaster that was the garlanding of the Duke of Edinburgh; and sources say she was summoned to a press conference possibly even as late as the morning of his announcement about the advisory panel on violence against women.He used Batty to deflect attention from his own incompetence.

Since that moment, Abbottoversawthe deepest cuts to essential legal services for women trying to escape family violence. He oversawobscene cuts to Indigenous funding. Heglibly responded to each and every discussion about the rate of family violence in Australia by suggesting real men don’t hit.

Just to make this very clear to all politicians across all parties, Australians are devastated by the level of violence directed towards women. This year alone, Destroy The Joint’s campaign Counting Dead Women counts the toll at 62 – and in the vast majority of those deaths, the woman knew her accused killer. Last week alone, three women were killed in 24 hours.

Abbott wasthe one who was weak and gutless, allowing his ministers to slice, slice, slice from services that protect those women he pretends to want to protect.

Last week, Our Watch, funded by the federal government and some state and territory governmentsto drive cultural change in the behaviours and attitudes that lead to violence against women and children, handed out inaugural awards on exemplary reporting covering those issues.

I’m proud to say that Counting Dead Women and Fairfax’s Shine A Light campaign were both given awards – and I’m honoured to be part of both of those teams. But I was utterly appalled at Senator Michaelia Cash’s speech beforehand where she said that Australia had turned a corner on the issue of domestic violence.

She said that at the end of 24 hours during which three women had lost their lives to violence. She said the media had a responsibility when it came to reporting on violence against women.

Yes, Senator Cash, we do. But governments have the money and the power.Don’t use dead women and children as a pawn in your bid to hold power.

Survey says developers satisfied with DA service

Comments Off on Survey says developers satisfied with DA service

PLEASED: Eurobodalla Shire Council’s development assessment staff received favourable feedback about the services they provide. Pictured (seated) are development services manager Gary Bruce (left) and planning and sustainability director Lindsay Usher with assessment staff Rebecca Ireland, (standing) David Sheehan, Bryan Netzler, Kara Nelson, Lee Hamlyn, Mike Mcilveen and Mark Brain.RESEARCH commissioned by Eurobodalla Shire Council to gauge development application customer satisfaction shows regulars are happy but there’s room to improve.

Micromex Research in June surveyed 155 people who lodged a development application (DA) in the past 10 months.

A council spokeswoman said overall satisfaction was “very favourable” at 82 per cent, with 43 per cent of applicants committing to the top “very satisfied” rating, and a further 39 per cent selecting “satisfied”.

She said negative ratings were low at six per cent.

“Council’s development helpdesk staff were rated highly, with 86 per cent of applicants considering their services as good (30 per cent) or very good (56 per cent),” she said.

“This was attributed primarily to their politeness, helpfulness and knowledge.

“Similar results were achieved for the council’s building surveyors with 83 per cent of respondents who used the service considering the service as good (43 per cent) or very good (40 per cent).”

The spokeswoman said the results also showed the council performed consistently better than the norm for other councils that undertook similar surveys.

Council’s planning director Lindsay Usher said the results were pleasing however there were still opportunities to improve.

“The important thing is that this research tells us what people who actually use the service think about it, as opposed to the perception,” he said.

“This is real data from real applicants, and we can use this to identify how and where we can make further improvements.”

Mr Usher said people who used council services regularly, such as architects and larger builders, were generally more satisfied with the services and believed the council continued to improve.

“This is gratifying because our staff have been working hard to continue to improve our process, our communications, and the consistency of information they provide,” he said.

“The owner builders – people who use the services less frequently – were still satisfied but generally less so than our more frequent customers.

“This tells us we need to look at how we can better support and help these people through the development process.”

Mr Usher said the most common complaint he heard in the community was people thought it took too long to process a DA.

He said this did not reflect performance data from the NSW Government which showed Eurobodalla council performed better than the average in terms of time to determine a DA and the number of applications assessed per staff member.

Last financial year the council considered 640 development applications.

None were refused and 14 were withdrawn.

It’s all Roos as Lions colts their own worst enemies in preliminary final loss

SEASON’S END: Orange City centre Charlie Mortimer trucks it up during his side’s preliminary final loss to Dubbo on Saturday. Photo: MATT FINDLAY 0913mfcolts17RUGBY UNION

ORANGE City’s season came to a disappointing end at Pride Park on Saturday, outclassed by a strong Dubbo Kangaroos outfit in the Blowes Clothing Cupcolts preliminary final, going down 30-nil.

The ill-disciplined Lions were their own worst enemy in the loss, conceding a continuous flow of penalties to gift Dubbo field position, possession and ultimately the second place in this weekend’s decider against Bathurst Bulldogs.

“Luck didn’t have anything to do with it, the better side won on the day. [Dubbo] certainly came to play and our boys were ill-disciplined,” Orange City coach Fletcher Niven said.

“It was dumb options, and that came from the guys not really doing the hard yards on the paddock. But they got to the last three and that’s credit to them.

“Last year we had a high turnover of players and I thought we might struggle. Winning five or six on the trot at the start of the season I thought was the worst thing that could’ve happened to us.

“The guys took their foot off the accelerator, stopped turning up and we never got back on a roll from there.”

It didn’t take Dubbo long to kick things off, with fullback Luke Ryan diving over in the opening exchanges.

Despite Orange City’s best efforts, it was all Roos from there.

When the Lions got the ball, and that was rarely, they couldn’t hold on to it, and Dubbo ran in another two tries through winger Zac London to take a 20-nil lead into half-time.

Dubbo didn’t take their foot off the gas in the second half, and when Orange City fullback Weio Got was yellow carded for inciting a stoush, the Lions were all but out of the game.

Ryan Rooke crossed for Dubbo soon after and penalty goals to Ryan and Brad Collins sealed a comfortable victory for the Kangaroos.

“We had a couple of guys leave to go overseas after last week, and a few of the guys who have sat on the bench moved up into the starting spots as a result, but they got the job done which is great,” Dubbo coach Dean Matthews said.

“It is a good performance to go into a grand final on the back of, but it’ll have to be better next week for us to even go close to Bathurst.”
