Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

INITIATIVE: Cessnock City Council ranger Lyndall Smith with Kahn the Rottweiler at the council carpark, where the free microchipping day will be held on May 14.Microchipping is one of the most important things you can do for your pet.

In collaboration with Hunter Animal Watch, Cessnock City Council rangers have arranged a free microchipping day to ensure every dog and cat in the local government area isidentifiable.

The microchipping day will be held in the council car park in Cumberland Street onSaturday, May 14 from9am to 12pm.

Over the last four years council rangers have microchipped more than 1000 pets and ranger team leader Kurt Livens hopes people take advantage of this free service.

“By law pet owners must have their dog or cat microchipped by 12 weeks of age, at the point of sale or when they are given away,” Mr Livens said.

Hunter Animal Watch is also offering reduced rates for pensioners/health care card holders who wish to have their animals desexed if their animals are microchipped on the day (conditions apply).

Cessnock Mayor Bob Pynsent said the free microchipping dayhas always been a popular event for residents and anotherbig turn-out is expected.

“It is a great service to the community and we hope to make the cost of being a responsible pet owner easier for families,” Cr Pynsent said.

Rangers will be available on the day to answer any questions.

All dogs must be on a lead and all cats contained in a cage or carry basket.

Preparation is key to job prosperity

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

INTERVIEW SUCCESS: Interview nerves can get to anyone, make sure you are prepared, calm and take time to think about the answer you are going to give. With jobs available across many of Tasmania’s best sectors,more people are looking for work, making it hard to stand out from the crowd.

Employment expert Nick Hutchinson, manager at Professional Edge Staff and Training, says there are many things you can do as a prospective employee to make sure you get your dream job.

The main areas Professional Edge see growing are tourism and hospitality, as Tasmania becomes an increasingly popular tourist and dining destination, but there are jobs to be had across many sectors, he says.

“If you’re the sort of person who makes learning a lifestyle rather than just doing training online or through an institution, but is continually learning about their job, that certainly helps.”

So how do you land the ever-important job interview?Mr Hutchinson says it’s vitalto pay careful attention to your application and tailor your resume to suit the job you are applying fo.

“As an example I might say I want you to address the selection criteria, answer these questions and send me your resume, and lots of the time people won’t read those through and follow those instructions.”

Mr Hutchinson says to practice potential interview questions with an acquaintance, rather than a family member or close friend, to get a more realistic experience of what an interview might be like.Making sure you’re a few minutes early and taking care with your appearance will boost your chances of success.

Artistic Denman display

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

CALLING all art fans.

Denman’s Brook Gallery at Small Forest Wines has a new exhibition on display – Silk and Pastels.

Created by Upper Hunter residents Barry Bryan and Elizabeth Birch, the exhibition will remain inside the Small Forest Wines cellar door until June 26.

A talented artist, Barry Bryan first began regularly painting in 1997.

He was a director of a Sydney real estate business when he almost died from Legionaires disease 19 years ago.

Therapists at Mt Wilga Private Hospital in Hornsby suggested he begin painting to assist him in the use of his hands.

A complication meant he was required to live in a compression garment, and painting could give his hands some much-needed movement.

Through this recommendation, Mr Bryan began to polish his craft, and grew to become an award-winning artist.

His range of paintings includes an eclectic mix of themes; from Hunter landscapes to flora and native birds.

As for Mrs Birch, she enjoyed making clothes and costumes for her family as they grew.

From this, she developed a love of textiles, and, at World Expo 88, her admiration of silk paintings was sparked.

CREATIVE: Barry Bryan and Elizabeth Birch with some of Elizabeth’s wall art.

She took a class in silk paintings and has not looked back since.

Mrs Birch has been creating techniques and producing free-flowing wall art and brightly coloured scarves.

For those looking for a special present for mum in the lead up to Mother’s Day, there are works from these two artists on sale at Small Forest Wines.

Or perhaps a visit to the exhibition and a wine tasting could be a gift in itself to celebrate your mother.

Brook Gallery at Small Forest Wines is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to4pm.

It is located at 5052 Jerrys Plains Road, Corner ofGolden Highway and Denman Road, Denman.

Thunder home season kicks off this weekend

Written by admin on 19/06/2019 Categories: 南京夜网

Thunder’s Jack Barrow pushes through a tackle in a match last year.

Jimboomba Thunder will have every one of their teams, from under 6s to open’s playing at home for the first time this year this weekend.

Kicking off 730pm Friday night, games will run right through until early Saturday evening, a total of 18 games being played at The Thunderdome.

“With our juniors playing in the Gold Coast Competition, the Men in the Brisbane Second Division and Women in the South East Queensland competition it’s been quite difficult to get all our teams together at the one ground but thankfully the leagues have been understanding of our situation,“club president Neil Richards said.

“The enthusiasm from the coaches, volunteers and committee is unlike anything I have experienced in my time here at the club. So many people have been willing to put their hands up to get involved, offering their expertise to oversee the new canteen and menu, look after the grounds or educate our coaches and managers.”

Thunder’s under 12s, 13s and men’s teams registered wins last weekend and the club is confident of a good showing in front of their hometown supporters on the recently resurfaced South Street Thunderdome.

“Not only do we have a great new field we have more works scheduled to start in late May. For the first time the club will have showers and change rooms,a second full size oval and an additional mini/mod field. This weekend is the start of a big couple of years for the club,” Richards said.

The club plans to play tribute to the ANZAC spirit over the weekend.

Fishermen pursue support

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

MUGGED: One of many long-nosed fur seals near the Tauwitchere Barrages that are causing the need for fisherman to seek financial aid from government, according to local members of parliament Tony Pasin and Jamie Briggs.With“half of the industry on the edge of bankruptcy”, local members of parliament request financial aid for Coorong fishermen.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin and Member for Mayo Jamie Briggs have requested accessto the Farm Household Allowance for the fishermen of the Lower Lakes and Coorong.

Mr Pasin and Mr Briggs spokewithMinister for Agriculture and Water ResourcesBarnaby Joyce to extend the initial request for aid from the Southern Fisherman Association.

According to Mr Pasin, state government has refused to facilitate a sustainable harvest of theseals, “despite calls to do so from across the political spectrum”.

“The destruction caused by these seals to fish stocks and fishing equipment has resulted in unprecedented financial hardship to the members of the Southern Fishermen’s Association,” he said.

Mr Pasin said many of the fishermenhave no alternative source of income.

President of the Southern Fisherman Association Gary Harrison said the financial aid would create short-termbreathing space for struggling fishermen.

“We wrote to Barnaby Joycebecause wild catch fishers do not receive household assistance butbills keep mounting –I’m working 100 days more a year andstill not making money,” he said.

“I’m concerned for at least seven businesses who will not survive the year.”

Mr Harrison stressed the need for a net fee release.

“People can no longer afford the $200 nets when they’re damaged and destroyed every day,” he said.“It’s like getting mugged every day of the week.”

Coorong Wild Seafood co-owner TracyHill said their income has halved since the seals arrived.

“We have two licenses worth $90,000 and people would not pay $1 for them now,” she said.

Mr Briggs said withoutfinancial aid,many fishermenwillpetition for bankruptcyand “forgo their fishing license in order to claim unemployment benefits”.

A spokesperson for Barnaby Joyce said he is advised wild catch fishermen operating in shared waters fall outside the legislated definition of farmers eligible for assistance under Farm Household Allowance at this stage.

Area’s grape growers pull up stumps

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

THE Wine Grapes Marketing Board believes more and more growers in the Leeton shire and wider region are tearing out their vineyards in favour of new opportunities.

Last month growers in the MIA received a letter from the board that discussed limited growth for domestic markets.

Market conditions and the Australian Dollar have also had an impact. The board wrote “it is the opinion of the board and a number ofwineries that grape growers are not likely to receive any increase in their returnsin the foreseeable future”.

Board chief executive officer Brian Simpson said the organisation needed to be upfront with growers.

“For those that weren’t making a return now, it was looking more and more like they wouldn’t be anytime soon,” he said.

“Our growers are our top priority.

“It is disappointing, but there are still opportunities out there for these growers.”

Mr Simpson said he had heard anecdotally of growers ripping out their vines to make room for new crops.

“There’s still plenty out there that growers in this situation can do,” he said.

“There appears to be more opportunities with other crops.

“However, we do understand there is uncertainty out there.”

With this in mind, the board will be holding an agriculture options workshop at the Griffith Regional Theatre. The event will be in the Burley Griffin Room on May 12 from 8am to 2pm.

“We’ll be discussing the many opportunities that are out there,” Mr Simpson said.

“It’s free and open to all to come along to.”

Anzac match headlines Round One

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

CONTEST: Mallee Park’s John Miller and Tasman’s Matt James stretched out to try and take a mark during last year’s Anzac Day match.

FRIDAY evening will bethe start of the first round in the Port Lincoln Football League. It will be an action packed long weekend with three matches played acrossthree separate days.

Tasman vsWayback, Ravendale

The 2016 season will start with a twilight game on Friday at Ravendale between two traditional rivals, Tasman and Wayback.

Both clubs have a lot to prove and they have also lost a lot of big name players since last season.

Tasman have lost big names including Jace Rodda and Sam Clements but if some of their new recruits line up this weekend, they should have plenty of run behind them.

Meanwhile Wayback will be missing the Maxfields and the Montgomeries but likewise should have some new faces line up and if they can apply the ferocious offensive pressure displayed in its wins against Boston and Mallee Park last year it will be a long day out for the Roosters.

Both teams will be out to prove that the losses won’t affect them and the match may be too close to call.

With the home ground advantage and maybe some more run behind them, maybe look at a Tasman win first up.

Lincoln South vsMarble Range, Centenary Oval

The two bottom sides from last year have made some big changes to their sides and are pushing for a finals berth.

Marble Range has welcomed some big names in Tom Gent from Tumby Bay and Brock Laube from Spencer Gulf, if they front up they will be of great help tothe Rangers.

Meanwhile Lincoln South hasalso welcomed some major acquisitions including Swayne Ackland and Mitch Jolly, but it may be its younger brigade including Levi McDonald and Jamie Doudle who will lift them.

This is a good launching pad for the two clubs as we may see what we can expect from them for the remainder of the season.

It’s a tough call, but look for Lincoln South to score a narrow victory.

Mallee Park vsBoston, Centenary Oval (Anzac Day)

The must see match of the round will see an Anzac Day grand final rematch between reigning premiers Mallee Park and runners-up Boston.

With a midfield including Jayden Roderick and Mail Medallist Kingsley Bilney Jnr, Mallee Parkwill have plenty of pace behind them and also look out for the dangerous Johncock combination down in the forward line.Despite some big outs from the previous season, notably Harry Carslake and Malcolm Miller, Boston will have some handy inclusions on hand including Michael Tabe and Adam Hywood.Boston will need to stop Mallee Park in the midfield as once they get going they are difficult to stop.It will be a great match but unless Boston can get on top early, expect another Mallee Park win.
