Choir sings its heart out

Tight-knit: Some of the members of Pacific Harmony with Santa backstage at their first performance at the 2013 Newcastle Permanent Carols by Candlelight.PACIFIC Harmony is a far cry from your ordinary choir.

“We’re a powerhouse gospel choir,” conductor and coach Komiti Time said.

Blending smooth island grooves from the Pacific Islands with warm harmonies from the heart of Africa, the choir’s 13 members come from far and wide.

Their roots include the Torres Strait Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Indonesia, the Philippines and Zimbabwe.

The choir’s members are all friends and family, which Mr Time said made the group tight-knit.

The Newcastle-based choir formed about four years ago in a garage, and has since exploded onto the city’s music scene.

Most of themembers play in other bands on the weekends, and come together as Pacific Harmony to performat pubs and clubs, weddings and charity gigs across Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.

All have a musical background, having grown up around music in church.

Mr Time was the driving force in assembling the choir.

“I got the best of the best together and away we went,” he said.

Mr Time, who is one third of trio Tre Soul, teaches all areas of the choir –the altos, sopranos, bassists and tenors –and works with the lead vocalists.

The choir gathers at least once a week, sometimes more if they have an upcoming gig, at NewcastlePresbyterian Churchin Lambton.

At the moment they are working hard on their set for the 2015 Newcastle Permanent Carols by Candlelight at Speers Point Park on December 13.

It will be the choir’s third carols performance, having debuted in 2012 –the group’sfirst major gig.

“It was amazing that year,” Mr Time said.

“The atmosphere was electric. It was packed –just a sea of people. You couldn’t see the grass.

“[The choir] had so much fun.”

They are back this year to perform classic Christmas carols with a twist.

The choir will perform First Noel with an R’n’B feel; Away in a Manger, backed by powerful vocals; and the Mariah Carey version ofO Holy Night, among others.

“It’s all the carols you would expect to hear, but with a Pacific Islander twist,” Mr Time said.

Pacific Harmony will be performing in the afternoon to late evening as part of this year’s bumper entertainment lineup.

There will be entertainment on stage from 1.30pm and plenty to keep the kids amused, including free face painting and activities as well as Frozen on the big screen.

Sarah De Bono andMorgan Evans will headline the evening concert from 6.30pm.

Top quality hay a surprise

07.06.2018, Comments Off on Top quality hay a surprise, 南京夜网, by .

Rupanyup farmer and Grains Producer Australia’s Andrew Weidemann
南京夜网

WITH near perfect harvesting conditions for most of this week, we will see harvest finished on the Weidemann farm.

For the second time in the past two harvests, we have again finished inside November.

Although with plenty of hay making as wellover the past sevenweeks, it seems like a long harvest.

Amazingly the amount of grain we have been lucky enough to harvest was much better than we had thought possible, given the extreme final temperatures in September and early October.

The hay quality has been at the high end with some cereal hay producing better than 14 per centprotein, which I personally didn’t think possible in cereal hay until now.

The vetch hay has also been of very good quality and with greater than 20 per centprotein it was easily sold into the feed market.

The dry conditions have accelerated the need for feed across a fair amount of Victoria, which will consume a large amount of hay and grain over the next few months.

This will keep the pressure on the upside for feed grain and hay.

Once harvest is complete we will be shearing lambs to put out onto the stubbles for feed.

One of the challenges in 2016 will be the crop choice.

This season has seen a massive increase in pulse values on the back of a very big demand in India, which is currently driving prices to levels seen very rarely in the Wimmera over the past decade.

Market intelligence will be crucial in trying to understand what this market mightlook like at the end of 2016 and will influence the amount of pulse planted in 2016 in my opinion.

Onthe farm continues to be busy with my role at Grain Producers Australia looking at new regulations and policy around ag chemicals and multi-peril crop insurance.

This has been in the spotlight for some time and will certainly be a strong topic in 2016 as we start to see more companies offering various types of income protection products to farmers more broadly.

Here’s hoping 2016 is a wet year as we look to put a dusty 2015 to bed in just overa months’ time from now.

BURNING ISSUE: Angst over the future-defining Murray-Darling Basin Plan continues to smoulder across local irrigation communities.Name and shame cuplritsTHE people who trashed the woman’s house at Turvey Park recently should have their names and photos printed in your paper.

Name and shame them.

E PattersonGerringongTime to take stockWAGGACity Council must tighten its belt and put on hold all projects that cannot be afforded, and these include the Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics (RiFL) Hub, equine projects, Bolton Street sports complex, Lake Albert and the community art projects.I attended the levee community forum last week and council should take out a loan to pay for it and not subject the residents and ratepayers toa special rate variation.

Jeff StienWaggaThe halal conspiracyMY LETTER last week was censored and this removed a very relevant fact.

Halal certification that is attached to a huge percentage of our food attracts a “Muslim tax” .

Wages are paid to Muslims so we can slaughter stock in a particular way so they can eat the meat.

Huge sums of money are paid from many food processors to make our perfectly good food Muslim-friendly.

Now I think that’s bad enough, but this money is used to build mosques and Muslim schools that unashamedly discriminate against Australian Christian kids.

Our kids will never be able to attend theseschools and we all know that if we built schools that Muslims couldn’t attend, we would find ourselves in huge trouble and called racist to boot.

Anton HutchinsonTarcuttaStand up for futureHOW many politicians have been listening to some of the dialogue surrounding senate hearings into the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, which are presently underway?

The plan is being described as a national disaster, as well as a crisis that is crippling communities, breaking up families and destroying businesses.

A small group of senators attending the hearings are sympathetic to the plight of these communities.

However, if we are to achieve the change that we need, many more politicians must start sitting up and taking notice.

We have communities and food producers in despair as millions of litres of water are sent out to sea, yet scientists are unable to demonstrate the environmental benefit.

In the interest of our future generations who expect us to leave a legacy of food security, I appeal to all politicians to take heed of the crisis we have created with knee-jerk reactions to the millennium drought.

Let’s do something about it before food producers and the communities which rely on them are destroyed.

Karen MacdonaldBlightyWe mustthink of othersTHIS year as we finish our Christmas shopping, please spare a thought for others.

Once you’ve bought a Kris Kringle for a workmate, a quirky gift for your brother-in-law or any of the presents you need for family and friends, consider one more gift for someone who really needs it.

One more gift to Red Cross will help ensure an older or isolated person gets a phone call every day to check they’re OK, clean water for a young child in a remote village in Myanmar, or a shower and a meal for a teenager sleeping rough.

This Christmas I urge everyone to consider making one more gift to Red Cross by calling 1800 811 700.

Leura has bus blues

08.19.2019, Comments Off on Leura has bus blues, 南京夜网, by .

Leura residents have urged council to buy avacant block on the entry ramp to the Mall tosolve the problem of tourist buses in the town.
Nanjing Night Net

But council says the land can’t be used as a parking area and it doesn’thave time to formally consider a report before the auction, which is scheduled forFriday.

The land at12-14 Great Western Highway would be perfect, according to Lorraine Droga. She isone of a group campaigningto get touristcoaches away from the crowded shopping area where they often block sight lines for car drivers trying to exit the main carpark.

Under the group’sgrand plan, the land at number 12 could be used as a drop off/pick up point, encouragingtourists to walk down the Mall, rather than just dash into the toilets and Woolworths from Megalong Street, as they currently do.

And a cottage on the land at number 14 could be converted to a tourist information office with toilet facilities.

But a council spokeswoman said land use zones would not allow a carpark.

“A technical assessment of the site also suggests that it would be unsuitable for use as a tourist bus parking facility as proposed by the Leura Village Association,” she said.

“In addition, the Local Government Act requires the council to formally consider a report and pass a resolution prior to buying or selling property.

“Irrespective of any merit of the proposal and funding considerations, this is not practically possible prior to the auction date of Friday,November 27.”

She said the local traffic committee willrecommend that the current tourist bus zones in Megalong Street are changed to“tourist bus zone, drop off pick up, 10 minute (8.30am – 6pm)”.

The committee will also suggest betterline marking of driveways, turning paths and no stopping zones along Megalong Street, to helpdrivers leavingthe carpark as well as to better manage buses.

Council has saidthe bus issuewill bereviewed in the 2016/17 financial year in a wider study that will consider longer termsolutions to traffic and bus issues.

Leura lottery: Buses often block the view of drivers trying to get out of the Woolworths carpark.

Lock resident Sally Zacher said the changes would make it easier on her family when her kids went off to tertiary study next year.

“Next year we will have twochildren at university, and to have new legislationhelp us with the cash costing of having children away would be amazing, it would take the pressure of us,” she said.

Federal parliament last week passed the legislative changeswith bipartisan support, meaning thousands more young people will qualify for an average annual youth payment of more than $7000 a year.

Students will also benefit from the removal of the means test and couldreceive Youth Allowance for the first time orget$2000 more each year. Thechanges alsomean families with farms won’thave their farm assets counted in the means test.

Veteran served as mechanic

07.19.2019, Comments Off on Veteran served as mechanic, 南京夜网, by .

Geoff Kohler was undertaking his motor mechanic apprentice when he was conscripted into the army in 1968.
南京夜网

After his initial training at Puckapunyal for three months, Mr Kohler was then posted to Warradale in Adelaide for nine months.

He was then sent to Vietnam where he spent the next 206 days attached to the 102 field Workshop RAEME.

Mr Kohler felt he was very lucky to continue as a motor mechanic.

Whilst in Vietnam, other than the war conditions, he remembers loading the HMAS Sydney in Australia and also unloading the same ship in Vietnam.

He met Roger Soar, a fellow conscript, and Colleen Mealy, an Army Nursing Officer, both from Port Augusta.

After returning to Australia, Mr Kohler returned to Woodforde Motors which he eventually owned.The RSL at that time was not very welcoming to Vietnam vets so he did not join until his son, Adam, started playing darts and pool at the club.

Over the years Mr Kohler has been president (2001 to 2005) and since then senior vice president often presiding over commemorative services, taking school groups through the museum and other official duties.

Back in the black

07.19.2019, Comments Off on Back in the black, 南京夜网, by .

AFTER almost coming close to having to shut its doors, the Leeton Soldiers Club has achieved a significant turnaround.
南京夜网

It has been about two-and-a-half years since the club was placed into voluntary administration, but the business is showing promising signs for the future.

For the 2014-15 financial year, the club posted a financial trading profit of $87,714.

It is the first time in many years the club has recorded a profit after many years of being deeply in the red.

Early next year the club will be required to finalise all of its payments to creditors under its deed of company arrangement (DOCA).

This final action will have seen the club “retire” about $1.3 million in debts over a three-year period.

Once this occurs, the club will no longer be in voluntary administration.

Club secretary-manager Adam McIntyre said the road ahead was still long, but it was pleasing to report on a positive year.

“It’s been a hard slog, but the light is at the end of the tunnel,” he said.“We definitely want to thank the community and our members for all of theirsupport.

“Without them we definitely would have had to close our doors back in 2012.Once again our board has been instrumental in delivering this financial result.

“(Their) patience, desire and skill has helped us continue on our path in becoming a sustainable and commercially-viable business in the future, while still embracing and supporting our community as strongly as in the past.”

During the year, the club’s directors have also created a five-years strategic plan that addresses the areas of finance, operations, marketing, staff, governance, security, food and beverage and future investment.

Mr McIntyre said the club was well aware there were still many improvements to be made.

“We’re in an ageing building and where we can we will certainly be upgrading,” he said.

“Once we’re out of voluntary administration there will obviously be more freedom allowed to us, but we still need to be careful.”

In his annual report, board president Barry Greatz was also impressed with the result.

“The next 12 months will see some important strategic decisions being considered by (the) board,” Mr Greatz said. “This time next year will see us free of the burden of the DOCA and hopefully in a strong enough position to implement some of the targets in the strategic plan.”
