“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

Rupanyup farmer and Grains Producer Australia’s Andrew Weidemann
Nanjing Night Net

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.

Name and shame them.

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.

Illawarra renters are suffering‘housing stress’ according to a new report that shows renters from the region’ssouthern suburbs through to the northare spending more than 30 per cent of household income on rent.
Nanjing Night Net

Adrian Pisarski from National Shelter, said the SGS Economics and Planning report showedwhat had been known anecdotally for ages.

In Wollongong’s northern 2515 postcode which stretches fromThirroul to Clifton, the report revealed rent was‘severely unaffordable’, withthe average household contributing48 per cent of their income on rent.

The most affordable Illawarra postcode was2502 takingin Cringila, Lake Heights, Primbee and Warrawong, where theaverage household contributed31 per cent of income on rent – arateconsidered to be‘unaffordable’.

Housing stress is considered to have beenreached once a household spendsmore than 30 per cent of income on rent.

“Many middle income households are finding it hard to make ends meet, Mr Pisarski said.

“These households ultimatelythen don’t have disposable income to spend on keyitems like health, transport, education and food.”

SINGLETON cricketer Taylah Knight is hoping to catch the eye of Australian selectors at the Under-15 National Championships in Hobart this week.
Nanjing Night Net

ON THE BALL: Singleton cricketer Taylah Knight will represent NSW/ACT at the Under-15 National Championships in Hobart this week.

And, she’s in a good position to do so – after averaging 7.12 with the ball this season, and snaring 4-15 from seven overs against Campbelltown-Camden in the Sydney competition.

The talented leg spinner andmiddle-order batsman will take the field for NSW/ACT against Tasmania from Wednesday.

The carnival, which sees thegirls play each of the state’s best youngsters in a round-robinformat, wraps up on December 2.

“We’ve got about eight games, so there’s not much time for sight-seeing with only one rest dayduring the tournament,” Knight said.

“But, I’m expecting it’ll be a tough championship.

“The conditions should suit me though.

“I’m really looking forward to it.”

The St Catherine’s Catholic College Year 8 student represents JPC under-16s in the local Friday night competition and the Flamingos in the Maitland junior format on Saturdays.

The first all-female team in the Hunter Valley, the Flamingos, was formed by Singleton’s Maisy Gibson.

On top of that, Knight alsoplays for the St George-Sutherland Slayers in the under-17women’s age group in Sydney on Sundays.

Off-season, she was selected in the Central North Cricket NSW Academy 8 sessions in Tamworth from June through to September.

The teenager then played at the Country Championships in Raymond Terrace on the October long weekend for Central North, who finished runner-up to the City 15s.

From there, she took the field for Country at the State Challenge Carnival.

Knight ended the tournament with a bowling average of 14.33, an economy rate of 3.07, with a best effort of 3-17 off eight overs.

This gained her a position in the NSW/ACT under-15s.

Following intensive training with the squad, at Kempsey and Singleton, she spent last weekend at a two-day camp at Bankstown International Sports Park toprepare for Hobart.

“It’s the first time I’ve beenselected in the side, so I’m excited about the opportunity,” Knight said.

“Afterwards, they’re picking an Australian merit team.

“I’m hopeful of securing a spot.”

Indi Gladman accepts the Wellington Sports Star award from Wellington Shire councillor Malcolm Hole, Sporting Legends chairman Chris Tudor, Gippsland Times managing director Bruce Ellen and ABC Gippsland presenter Jonathon Kendall during the Wellington Sports Awards.TRAP shooter Indi Gladman was named Wellington’s Sports Star for 2015 on Friday night.
Nanjing Night Net

The Wellington Sports Awards, co-sponsored by Sporting Legends, the Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator, Wellington Shire and more recently ABC Gippsland, have recognised the talents of young sports people in Wellington Shire since 2002.

Ms Gladman is ranked in the top 10 women Olympic trap shooters and top five for junior women in the discipline.

In recognition of her many achievements in the past year she has been chosen to represent Australia for junior women’s Olympic trap shooting at the Oceania Championships later this month.

This is an open competition for Shooting Australia to pick its Olympic team for Rio and to win quotas for Australia for the Olympics.

Ms Gladman said the $5000 award would prove invaluable in covering her travel expenses to reach the Oceania Championships.

Her sports club, Sale Field and Game, was awarded $1000 to foster youth involvement in its sport.

Ms Gladman was selected as the 2015 sports star from an impressive group of candidates, the interim winners including Josh Dunkley AFL football, Kyle Dunkley AFL football Lara Dunkley netball, Cody Dyce, motocross, Cody Henness AFL football, Rebecca Ingram volleyball, Charlie Noble, swimming, Jordan Rowand, swimming, and Levi Sclater, golf.

In contrast to previous years when guest speakers have been sporting stars or entertainers who have inspired the audience of invited sports club representatives, this year’s guest speaker Peter Wearne from Youth Support and Advocacy Services challenged the audience to embrace methods of dealing with problems affecting young people.

He was particularly concerned with those who are marginalised, and have alcohol, drug and criminal behaviour problems.

Mr Wearne has been an advisor to various state governments, and was a member of the Victorian Police Youth Advisory Committee from 1998 to 2004 and a member of the Victorian Premier’s Drug Prevention Council from 2001 to 2007.

His message for the local sporting clubs was that it is possible to help people dealing with drug abuse problems, even in the so-called current ice epidemic.

“All drug use is treatable,” he said.

” The equation is the drug and the person, if we work with the person we can rebuild people’s lives.

“There are push and pull factors, internal and life influences,” he said.

Mr Wearne emphasised the need to include alienated and marginalised people in the community and to involve them in their own treatment.

The evening finished with the disbursement of the Sporting Legends’ Clubzpool funds to the almost 80 local sporting organisations invloved.

SOME Burnie Caterpillar workers are still unable to take new jobs as their redundancies loom ever closer, a union leader says.
Nanjing Night Net

The Cat workers who do not yet know when they will finish their underground mining equipment manufacturing jobs are finding it difficult to sign up for new jobsand becoming increasingly frustrated, according to Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union state secretary John Short.

Caterpillar’s facility at Wivenhoe.

”Some are going by Christmas,some by March; at least give them a date,” Mr Short said.

He said some of the workers had firm leaving dates, so they could look for work unencumbered.

Others who did not know their finishing dates had been unable to take up new job opportunities, he said.

”Some workers or their family members are ill and they would prefer sooner rather than later.”

US-headquartered Caterpillar is winding down its Burnie manufacturing operations and shifting production to Thailand.

About 280 Cat jobs are going from the Coast, with about 120 remaining.

The union was expecting to meet Cat today to push for clarity on workers’ finishing dates.

Nanjing Night Net

Lincoln South won the toss and sent Waybacks into the field.

Jaensch and Peters went out to face the opening bowling pair of Eckert and Parsons.

Parsons got the early wicket of Peters for a duck, Jaensch followed quickly to Eckert for two runs leaving Souths 2/5.

Shanley and Bryant steady the ship for Souths attacking anything loose, until Shanley was caught looking to keep the scoring rate going and giving Smart his first wicket.

Souths lost three quick wickets to leave them at 5/86.

Turner was next to fall for 15 looking to attack the spin of Allsopp.

Henshaw followed quickly for 27 also to Allsopp.

Souths tail didn’t offer much resistance except Bilney making 22.

Souths were bowled out for 161 as Allsopp and Parsons both finished with three wickets each.

Waybacks’ innings got off to a disastrous start losing both openers to young Waylon “the big show” Miller.

Allsopp and Parsons went about trying to get the innings back on track until Bilney and Binder ripped through the Waybacks middle order.

Cohen “the destroyer” Dinnison came on to clean the tail up and bowled Waybacks out for 76.

Bilney finished with three wicketsand the colts Miller, Binder and Dinnison finishing with two each.

Tasman lost to Tod River

A maiden century from Tom Gent set up a big win for Tod River over Tasman on Sunday.

Tod River won the toss and elected to bat first.

Bell and Beaumont faced up to the bowling of Martin and Amos to begin the game.

The scoring started off quickly, with the total rushing to 36 before Bell was out caught for 18.

Centurion Gent then entered the arena in the seventh over.

He and Beaumont got the score to 55 before Beaumont was bowled by Peek.

Sargeant had a short stay at the crease, run out for a run after attempting a suicide second run –he clearly had an issue separating ambition and ability.

Dennis joined Gent and the pair got the total to 100, before Dennis was bowled by Haebich.

Adam Davey joined Gent and the pair added 58, taking the total to 158, before Davey was stumped from the bowling of Fauser.

Wiseman and Gent then batted out the rest of the innings, with Gent scoring two runs from the last delivery of the innings to reach his maiden century, finishing exactly 100 not out.

Wiseman was unbeaten on 23 at the close of the innings.

The wickets were shared around, with four bowlers taking a wicket each, plus a runout by Harrison.

Fauser and Harrison began the Tasman innings, facing the bowling of Dennis and Mark Davey.

Fauser fell first in what can only be described as a typical B grade wicket, a terrible delivery from Davey followed by a worse shot from Fauser, ending in a catch to Dennis. Haebich fell next, bowled by Dennis. Harrison followed next over, caught by Sargeant from Davey’s bowling.

Webb didn’t last long, caught in the gully off Dennis.

Beaumont was introduced to the attack, and struck in his first over, having the dangerous Casanova caught and bowled. Wilks and Peek batted well together, reaching 111 at the drinks break.

Shortly after drinks though, Wilks was caught well down the leg side by Pobke from the bowling of Bell, out for 38. Glass didn’t hang around for long, bowled by Beaumont for three.

Peek was then out stumped off Bell, Martin following the very next ball in the exact same fashion.

Amos was then caught from the last ball of the Bell over and Tasman was all out for 125, 91 short of their target.

Bell was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4/11from his three overs, with Davey, Dennis and Beaumont all taking two wickets.

Bowfishing trials for carp reduction

04.19.2019, Comments Off on Bowfishing trials for carp reduction, 南京夜网, by .

The Department of Primary Industries will conduct a restricted 18-month trial of bowfishing for carp in specified inland waters in NSW from next month.The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) will conduct a restricted 18-month trial of bowfishing for carp in specified inland waters in NSW from next month.
Nanjing Night Net

DPI Game Licensing Unit Director Dr Andrew Moriarty said the trial follows a review of recreational saltwater and freshwater fishing rules in 2013, which included the proposal for bowfishing for carp in inland waters.

Bowfishing is a crossover between fishing and hunting. Bowfishers use specialised archery equipment (fishing arrows and reels attached to traditional recurve and compound bows) to shoot and retrieve fish.

Bowfishing, which is allowed in coastal waters but not in inland waters under the Fisheries Management Act 1994, is a legal and popular activity in several Australian states and in other countries.

“Carp are an introduced freshwater species that have been declared a noxious fish in NSW and this pest species can have a significant impact on freshwater ecosystems through their detrimental impacts on native fish, aquatic plants, erosion and water quality,” Dr Moriarty said.

The trial will be strictly controlled at limited sites in inland NSW which have met specific safety and access parameters. The first sites will be opened on December 4, 2015, and will include sections of rivers, creeks and streams in the Riverina, Central West, North West and Murray regions.

More sites will be made available in the near future, which may include sites in the Northern Tablelands and designated areas of several impoundments.

“Strict safety protocols will be implemented for the activity which have been based on a risk assessment developed by a stakeholder reference group,” Dr Moriarty said.

“As a prerequisite of the application process, individuals must have a fishing fee receipt and have completed a training course to gain the necessary accreditation.

“Individuals can now apply for a bowfishing permit from the DPI for the 18-month trial to begin on 4th December 2015.

“At the completion of the 18-month trial, a survey of anglers will be conducted to provide information on bowfisher effort, catch, expenditure and any specific feedback about the program.”

The trial will be managed under the Fisheries Management Act 1994 and involve the Department of Primary Industries’ (DPI’s) Fisheries and Game Licensing Unit divisions. Further information about the trial, including application forms is available at DPI’s websitehttp://梧桐夜网dpi.nsw.gov419论坛/hunting/bowfishing-for-carp.

Gippsland Times wins at newspaper awards

WITHits first entry in the Victorian Country Newspaper Awards for a number of years the Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator took out the prestigious Norske Skog Award for Best Use of Colour in newspapers with a circulation of more than 10,000 and was highly commended for overall excellence.
Nanjing Night Net

Judging of the best use of colour award looks at all sections of the newspaper, with judge Alan Pont inspecting each page of about 80 newspapers across four sequential issues.

The criteria he used included:

1. The headline on the front page enhanced by a colour photo associated with the story. It can add impact and relevance.

2. Front page pointers in colour referring to other content within the paper, if written correctly can add anticipation on news and entertainment to come.

3. Colour panels behind editorial text can make the paper more difficult to read. I only noticed this in a few papers.

4. In the sporting pages colour action shots with participants’ names.

In declaring the Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator the winner in this category Mr Pont said, “the colour throughout this publication was excellent.”

“The front page was busy with large colour pointers. The inside front cover Wellington News columns enhanced their editorial with colour photos while there was a strong ROP (local business advertising), real estate and trades and services advertising base.

“There was a reasonable balance between colour and mono( black and white) ads in trades and services.

“The action colour photos in sport complemented the editorial coverage. Overall, a worthy winner.”

The Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator was also highly commended in the Overall Newspaper Excellence Awards for papers with a circulation of more than 10,000.

The judge Mark Hollands declared the paper “a very strong editorial product.”

“Probably the best in terms of strength of articles through the newspapers.

“The puff boxes on the front pages are strong and the story selection impressive in terms of deciding what should have priority.

“The photography also has great energy. The constant feature of local residents in the paper is a real strength of the product. I liked this newspaper a lot.”

The Gippsland Times is planning for a modular design layout from February.
