  • Can we show some pride in our city?

    Date: 2019.09.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    For some time now concerns have been expressed by many, at the presentation of both the paving and shopfronts which make up our Central Business District.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    It is noted with both concern and interest, an answer given at the Tamworth City Centre Working Group on November 25 to aquestion raised by committee member Richie Thornton, concerning the need for pavers to be cleaned.

    The reply, from a responsible council staff member who was present, was to the effect that “current budget restraints” prevented a full cleaning programme being undertaken?

    One must ask where priorities are set when we can not afford to keep Peel St clean, but we can afford $20,000 for a new mayoral chain, or thousands of dollars removing trees, plus of course, the playground in Kable avenue.

    To have a “dirty house” is a very poor example to our young people.

    Until council cleans up the street paving for which it is responsible, it is rather hypocritical for it to approach property owners/occupiers to maintain their premises to an acceptable standard, as should be done promptly.

    Can we please have some display of pride in our City.

  • Marine Rescue design talks ongoing

    Date: 2019.09.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    Town Beach kiosk and Marine Rescue headquartersDISCUSSIONS about options for an amendment to the design for the Town Beach Kiosk and Marine Rescue radio base will continue following another meeting in Port Macquarie between council representatives and Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    Marine Rescue NSW Port Macquarie unit commander Neil Yates said the kiosk was now closed as it was not viable to continue ordering stock with the impending closure for the building renovations.

    He said the radio base operations would be moving temporarily to the boat shed at Westport within two to four weeks depending on the outcome of ongoing talks between Commissioner Tannos and council.

    “I’m hopeful we’ll get a result,” Mr Yates said.

    “Council obviously has to talk to the architect about options but I hope we can get by with an amendment and not have to look at a new DA (development application).”

    In response to a request for comment from council, Port News received the following statement:

    Port Macquarie-Hastings Council’s general manager Craig Swift-McNair and infrastructure and asset Management director Jeffery Sharp are having ongoing discussions with Commissioner Tannos regarding the Marine Rescue building upgrade works.

    Commissioner Tannos has put forward some proposed design changes and council is currently seeking advice from its architect on these.

    Council is keen to commence construction works, and a progress report will be presented at the September council meeting.

  • Leave children tomake up their own minds

    Date: 2019.09.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    I abhor child abuse. I also know that some parents engage in it because they know no different.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    The child abuse to which I am forcefully opposed is the induction of children into a specific religion.

    This type of abuse allows no error of judgment. The enforcer is always correct, even though they have no physical evidence to display.

    Take this sentences published in a major newspaper:

    “It is not the role of teachers to police their students, nor is it to act as intelligence officers spying on children on behalf of the government.”

    Some teachers and parents posted messages, saying they were telling their students or children to pray in the playground “rather than have their names enlisted”.

    Why is it necessary to pursue children into their school to enforcereligious instruction?

    Why cannot children be left alone until they do make up their own mind?

    There are so many religions, all of whom cannot pass the “Chinese Whisper” test, it is actually laughable.

  • ‘It takes a a village to raise a child’

    Date: 2019.09.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    National Child Protection Week runs from September 6 to 12. It’s the week we promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    I want to focus on what happens to a young person when they are abused and what treatment looks like for them.

    I often find that people think moving abused young people into safe environments is a solution, but it isn’t. It is just the first step.

    In 2013-14, Child Protection Services reports that 143,023 children received protection services. These young people weren’t being provided with a safe and stable environment during their most formative years.

    To cope with this, these kids develop the ability to detect threats quickly and develop responses that increase their chances of survival.

    The behaviours and responses developed during this time can range from: fleeing from danger, making themselves seem scary and tough, taking on the responsibilities that are generally that of a parent or by blocking out the world around them.

    After moving them into a safer environment, these young people still have over-active threat detection systems, which can lead to considerable problems for them.

    They may still scan their environment, constantly looking for danger, which can lead to poor focus (in or outside of the classroom). They may have anger issues and can be triggered by the slightest of problems. They might try to manage their emotions in unsafe ways – through damaging property, threatening others or consuming illicit substances.

    Even more troubling is their inability to trust anyone. It’s so difficult to treat and nurture these young people because they often have a deep-seated negative view of the people and world around them.

    Working with these young people is difficult and it’s important to remember what they’ve been through.

    First, a certain level of trust must be built in order to move forward with them. After that, it’s important to work with a young person to help them manage their emotions, heal from the pain they have experienced, and build relationships with others.

    Youth Off The Streets approaches this using the Circle of Courage framework and restorative practices.

    This is a holistic approach to reclaiming children and young people that is grounded in resilience and in values of deep respect for their dignity.

    The Circle of Courage evolved from an anthropological comparison of child development between Western and Native North American cultures.

    Native North American cultures regard children as spiritual creations (the Lakota Sioux word for child is translated as “sacred being”).

    Youth Off The Streets is committed to building this approach across all services and programs, and seeksto cultivate an environment thatpromotes attachment (belonging), competence (mastery), power (independence), and virtue (generosity) for the young people we work with to support them to achieve positive life choices.

    One of my favourite saying is “it takes a village to raise a child” and in this case it is absolutely true. Community members, services, youth workers and psychologists must work together for the benefit of the young person. Only through this collaborative approach can we unlock their full potential.

    It’s not enough to simply move young people into a safer environment.

    The community must come together to ensure that once they are safe that these young people get the help they need only through this can we unlock their full potential.

  • Mudgee Youth Theatre presents its first production

    Date: 2019.08.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    Youth theatre performers outside the Town Hall Theatre.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    The up and coming performers and playwrights of the Mudgee region will show their skills at this weekend’s Short Shorts program of short plays.

    Actors aged eight to 18 will stage their own plays at the Town Hall Theatre on Friday, September 11 at 7.30, and Saturday, September 12 at 1.30.

    The hour-long program includes plays set in the familiar worlds of school and home alongside encounters with wizards, genies and imaginary friends.

    The show is the first production of the Cudgegong Youth Theatre, formed last year with assistance from a Regional Arts NSW CASP grant.

    The youth theatre is Mudgee Performing Arts Society’s way of supporting the talented youngsters who have shone on stage in recent youth performances such as A Fairy Tale and last year’s Short Shorts production.

    These young talents have been working for months to write their scripts and creating their characters, along the way learning new storytelling and performance skills.

    “It’s great to be able to encourage the region’s future performers and writers,” Youth Theatre co-ordinator Sam Paine said.

    “A few of the children have already had supporting roles in our adult musicals and plays, but this is a chance to put them in the spotlight and let them take the lead.

    “Already it’s clear we have some great developing talents among our younger members, and our older high school performers are quite accomplished and still pushing themselves further.”

    With three of the region’s young performers leaving for Sydney acting schools in 2015 and others preparing for a similar move in 2016, the region is proving to be a fertile training ground for future actors.

    This year, thanks to a bequest from the late Norman McVicker and ongoing support from the Rotary Club of Mudgee Sunrise, the judges’ favourite writers and performers will win prizes of $200 for best production, $150 for best script, and a $200 people’s choice prize.

    “Norman was always enthusiastic about supporting young writers and performers, and we’re very grateful that his bequest has allowed us to continue that work,” Mr Paine said. “It strengthens the youth theatre and lets us reward the kids’ good work.”

    Short Shorts will be at the Mudgee Town Hall Theatre at 7.30pm on Friday, September 11, and 1.30pm on Saturday, September 12. Tickets will be available at the door, at $15 for adults, $10 concession, and $40 for a family.

  • Rylstone Wood Symposium to create art for the region

    Date: 2019.08.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    Rylstone Sculptures Inc secretary Virginia Handmeer and president Christopher Plummer will bring 10 days of woodworking and sculpture making to Rylstone in October.Nine sculptors from around the world will put their skills to the test at the Rylstone Wood Symposium in October.
    苏州美甲美睫培训学校

    The brainchild of Rylstone Sculptures Inc (RSI), the Wood Symposium will invite the sculptors to create works to be displayed around the Mid-Western Region.

    The came from RSI vice president Ludwig Mlchek.

    Sculptors Ian Bell, Rhonda Castle, Keith Chidzey, Simon Hearn, Ana Paula Luna, Chander Prakash, John G Price, Henryk Topolnicki, and Nardja Williams wee chosen from a long list of applicants.

    “There was a very good standard in the entries we received, and the submitted proposals were all a great fit for the region,” RSI president Christopher Plummer said.

    Each artist will carve their sculpture from a locally sourced, 2.4 metre long redwood gum trunk to over 10 days, using chainsaws, sanders or grinders.

    The sculptures will be showcased in areas in the region that do not have sculptures at the moment, or in an area that is a perfect fit for a certain sculpture.

    “A couple of the sculptures are actually three or so different pieces. Not all of them are one big piece,” RSI secretary Virginia Handmeer said.

    “So they may be placed in three different areas instead of all together,” she said.

    Mr Plummer said many of the works would be site specific, fitting into a certain space better than another. The final placement of the sculptures will be a joint effort between RSI and council.

    The Wood Symposium will be held in the Rylstone Showground’s sheep pavilion from October 29 to November 8.

    The event will be open to the public from 9am to 5pm each day. Residents are invited to come along and watch the artists work or listen to a daily talk of the sculpture making process.

    During the second week of the symposium (November 2 to 6), schools are invited to visit the event, talk to the artists, and learn about the art making process.

    Mr Plummer said the symposium will take place around the same time at the Rylstone StreetFeast.

    “The work will mostly be finished so those at StreetFeast can come along and have a look at the mostly finished sculptures,” Ms Handmeer said.

    Rylstone Sculpture Inc are a group of local residents committed to bringing public art to the Mid-Western Region, and specifically to Rylstone and Kandos.

  • Speed limits worth a look

    Date: 2019.08.21 | Category: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校 | Response: 0

    THERE’S been renewed discussion about increasing the speed limit on some of the state’s highways.

    It’s not the first time this has been tossed around and it won’t be the last, and it always provokes a lot of spirited comment from those who think drivers would benefit from getting from A to B faster and those who think it’s literally an accident waiting to happen.

    Roads Minister Duncan Gay reignited the debate on Friday when he suggested the speed limit be increased along the Pacific and Hume highways, from 110km/h to 120km/h on dry days, claiming that current speed limits don’t reflect the latest automotive standards.

    The minister’s comments come after a decision in the Northern Territory where motorists were permanently allowed to choose their own speed along a 276km stretch of highway following a successful 18-month trial.

    The territory actually did away with its open speed limit in 2006, before doing an about-face, but the statistics were interesting before and after the changes.

    Apparently, more people died on their roads in the six years after the limit was set at a maximum of 130km/h than they did in the six years before the open speed limit was removed.

    It’s certainly food for thought, and the proposal of a higher limit on some of our state’s roads is certainly worth a look.

    Millions are being spent on the Pacific Highway to increase the number of kilometres of dual carriageway, and it’s worth considering that some of these improved stretches could stand a higher limit.

    But perhaps the state could first look at a more consistent spread of speed limits, which cause as much frustration for motorists as anything.

    Fifty, 60, 70, 80 and 100 limits can all occur within a few kilometres of each other on many of our major roads, including the New England Highway.

    Motorists can become so focused on abiding to these frequent rises and falls so as not to fall foul of a speed camera, that they could be forgiven for failing to concentrate on what’s in front of them.

    Higher limits are worth a community debate and at the end of the day, no-one is saying you have to travel at that increased speed if you’re not comfortable with it.

    If the road is up to it and a motorists are responsible enough to drive to their capabilities, then maybe it’s time to put an increased speed limit on trial.

  • Cafe’s fundraiser brings Rhiannon’s Wheels closer

    Riannon Taylor is one step closer to having a wheelchair accessible vehicle of her own after the generous help of staff from Cafe 89.

    For the past two weeks, Cafe 89 has been selling tickets for their Father’s Day raffle, and as of Friday afternoon had raised $910 – all of which will be donated to Riannon’s Wheels.

    Riannon’s Wheels aims to raise enough money to purchase a handicapped van with a wheelchair lift for local women Riannon Taylor. Riannon has been in a wheelchair since 2011 when complications with her diabetes placed her in hospital in a coma.

    At the moment, Mrs Taylor is using a maxi taxi or community transport to help get Riannon around and said having access to a van of their own would mean Riannon wouldn’t have to miss anymore of her doctor’s appointments and they could see family and friends on a more regular basis.

    Riannon’s mother Marie Taylor said it was extremely nice to know that local businesses are interested in helping raise money for the cause.

    “It’s really nice actually, and they raised quite a bit of money as well,” she said.

    “Its a bit more money to help us buy the van,” Mrs Taylor said. “There’s other events raising money around town which is really nice.”

    Cafe 89’s Jo Gates said the raffle had been running for two weeks and a large percentage of their customers had brought a number of tickets wanting to help Riannon gain back some of her independence.

    “Our target was $500 so we managed to just smash it. We’ll have to come out with something else for the next fundraiser,” she said.

    10 lucky people won free coffee on Father’s Day and two lucky people had their names drawn out for $100 Father’s Day breakfast gift vouchers.
