Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull weighed into the controversy by attending Sunday’s rally and vowing to overhaul the Federal Work Act to protect volunteer firefighters if the government is re-elected on July 2. Photo: Peter DillonMore than 100 firefighters from central Victoria joined about 3000 others at a mass meeting in Treasury Gardens, Melbourne on Sunday to protest against a proposed Enterprise Bargaining Agreement between the CFA and the United Firefighters Union.

The latest protest follows a decision by Fair Work Commissioner Julius Roe, who oversaw the bargaining between the CFA and the UFU, last Wednesday.

Mr Roe supported the bulk of the union’s claims in his ruling.

It is understood the CFA Board is now reviewing the recommendations and seeking further advice and analysis on what they mean for the CFA.

Victoria’s most senior CFA volunteer spokesman, the president Nev Jones, says volunteers are not trying to interfere in legitimate wage negotiations, but the proposed agreement includes clauses that would give the union the power of veto over CFA operational and resourcing decisions, effectively putting CFA under union control.

Mr Jones said there was the very real danger that the union representing two per cent of the CFA workforce would have control, leaving CFA volunteers with no say at all.

“This dispute has reached a point where I must demand that the voice of the 60,000 volunteers from the 1200 CFA brigades from every community across the state of Victoria needs to be heard,” Mr Jones said.

“I respect the role of all firefighters, both paid and volunteer, in delivering CFA’s service to Victoria. This is not about the pay and conditions of paid firefighters at the 34 CFA stations where they work with volunteers – this is about union control of the CFA,” he said.

Meanwhile there is concern that firefighters will resign from the CFA if the union deal goes ahead.

Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria District 2 president Peter Thompson said: “Volunteer fire brigades are already wanting to resign and totally walk away from it, which is sad. We don’t want that to happen.”

While Commissioner Roe has made recommendations in favour of the union, Victoria’s Emergency Services Minister Jane Garrett and Opposition Leader Matthew Guy have both backed the CFA. The Premier, Daniel Andrews has described Mr Roe’s recommendations as “fair and balanced”.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull weighed into the controversy by attending Sunday’s rally and vowing to overhaul the Federal Work Act to protect volunteer firefighters if the government is re-elected on July 2.

It’s time to calm down, says union

CFA volunteer firefighters should be relieved by the seventh recommendation of the Fair Work Commission which repeatedly affirms that volunteers and their valuable work will not be affected by the new workplace agreement for career firefighters.

That’s the view of United Firefighters Union secretary, Peter Marshall.

“Volunteer firefighters should read the independent umpire’s findings for themselves by visiting 苏州美甲美睫培训学校goo.gl/W7VFWP,” Mr Marshall said.

The recommendation Mr Marshall is referring states: ‘… the provisions only relate to integrated stations and to the work of professional firefighters. The role of volunteers in fighting bushfires and maintaining community safety and delivering high quality services to the public in remote and regional areas and in integrated stations is not altered by this Agreement.’

“For the past six months Commissioner Roe has heard both sides of this dispute before making his independent recommendation based on submissions from all sides.

“Now it is time to calm down and deal with the facts.

“It is a lie to suggest that seven paid firefighters must attend every CFA fire in Victoria – only 34 of the CFA’s 1200 fire stations have career firefighters, so this is impossible.

“It is also a lie to claim that volunteers must wait for career firefighters before beginning their fire attack.

“No firefighter – volunteer or career – would delay immediate action at a fire.”

Mr Marshall said that some politicians and media had caused great anxiety to volunteer firefighters – and harmed their relationships with career firefighters – with false claims of doom and gloom.

“The reality is that volunteer firefighters will continue to be essential to the safety of the Victorian community.

GUILTY: Ricardo Dasilva was found guilty of murder. There was no murder weapon, no relevant DNA and no eyewitness.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Nevertheless, the jury was left with no doubt that real estate agent Ricardo Francis Herman Dasilva had murdered his former partner, Wyong High School maths teacher Amanda Carter, in her Woongarrah home in May,2010.

Erin Carter outside Newcastle courthouse 2/2 @newcastleheraldpic.twitter苏州美甲美睫培训学校/Wm8NAFqk8W

— Sam Rigney (@SamRigney) June 7, 2016

After a four-and-a-half week trial in Newcastle Supreme Court and four days of deliberations a jury of nine women and three men returned a guilty verdict at 2.30pm on Tuesday.

The verdict provoked no physicalresponse from Dasilva, who hadsat expressionlessin the dock throughout his trial.

But in the gallery it triggered a wave of emotion in Ms Carter’s daughter, Erin,andthe detectives who had spent years investigating the case.

Then, word spread by text message and phone callsthrough Ms Carter’s network of family and friends that her murderer had finally been brought to justice.

It had been these people;Ms Carter’s friends, family andcolleagues who, combined together, hadproved the prosecution’s circumstantial case, while simultaneouslydelivering body blows to the defence.

One after another they took the stand to provide a voice for Ms Carter.

They told the jury about the popular teacher’s growing concerns about Dasilva’s conduct in the wake of their relationship breakdown.

Six years after her death they relayed conversations with Ms Carter where she told of her fears that Dasilva was stalking her, how he would show up inside her house unannounced and uninvited and how he had “gone past the non-accepting stage and is entering the angry stage.”

OVERWHELMED: Erin Carter (centre), and a supporter, alongside the detectives who investigated Amanda Carter’s murder, leave Newcastle courthouse after the guilty verdict on Tuesday.

Ultimately, the jury found Dasilva was the person who had entered Ms Carter’s home on the night of May 15, 2010 and bashed her several times in the head with an unknown weapon while she slept.

Outside Newcastle courthouse, Erin Carter said the verdict would “hopefully” provide “an end, and closure” for the family.

“It’s fantastic, we’re really happy,” Erin Carter said.“[The trial] has been tough. “I’m glad it’s over, for all of us.”She praised the relentless work of the detectives who investigated her mother’s murder and the prosecution who proved the case against Dasilva.Crown prosecutor Lee Carr said he was glad the ordeal was over for Ms Carter’s family and friends.

“I think I am just pleased that there is closure for the family,” MrCarr said.

“It’s been more than six years, so it’s a long time to live with that and I’m just pleased for them.”

Dasilva will be sentenced in Sydney inAugust.

MISSED: Murder victim Amanda Carter.

Objectors oppose use of Rutter Park Port Albert for a RV parking and camping area.WELLINGTON Shire Council has received 17 written submissions for its proposed 2016-17 budget.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Among the requests are $50,000 for the installation of a footbridge to the Catholic College Sale ovals, and $10,000 for each neighbourhood house in the shire.

The submitters have been invited to make a verbal presentation to council during its meeting this afternoon, when submissions will be formally received.

Council will consider the written and verbal submissions before adopting the budget on June 21.

Some submitters objected to local projects.

The Charles Street Boat Ramp Community Group objected to proposed works at the boat ramp car park.

On behalf of the group, Brendon McNiven said the car park was empty for the “vast majority of the year”, overflowing four times annually.

“Given the current low general utilisation of the car park, and the minimal times it is exceeded, it would be a misguided waste of council funds to spend money reclaiming usable lake foreshore to provide yet more car parking that will sit as an empty eyesore for the majority of the year,” he said.

“Use of council funds in this manner would be misguided and directly at odds with the wishes of residents local to the area.”

Port Albert residents object to the allocation of funds for a boat trailer and recreational vehicle parking area in Rutter Park.

Diane Hogan said the area was not only used for RVs, but vans and camper trailers, which stay for three or four nights.

Ms Hogan said the area was not patrolled to ensure only self-contained vans used it.

“I object to ratepayers money being spent on facilities for freeloaders,” she said.

In their submission, Barbara and George Owen said “it is outrageous that the very limited open walking space for visitors for children’s play, picnickers and the barbecue has to be sacrificed, as lawn is going to be turned into asphalt”.

A submission on behalf of Catholic College Sale, Collegians Cricket Club and College Junior Football Club asked council to contribute $50,000 towards construction of footbridge across Flooding Creek at the western end of Macalister St, Sale, to the school’s ovals.

The new bridge, for which a planning permit was granted in April, will replace the old footbridge which was removed in 2007 following flood damage.

About $30,000 has already been spent on purchasing the structure and moving it to the site. An estimated $120,000 more is required to complete the project, including installing the bridge, constructing ramps, and removing and planting vegetation.

The submitters believed the council funding would benefit the school, local clubs, the Sale-Maffra women’s cricket team and other users.

The Wellington Neighbourhood House Cluster has repeated its request for council to provide $10,000 for each of the 10 neighbourhood house and learning centre in the shire.

“NHLCs are local not-for-profit organisations that deliver opportunities for networking, volunteering, socialising and training. They enhance wellbeing by keeping people engaged, healthy and active,” the cluster said in its submission.

The group pointed to other councils across the state which provide financial assistance, such as Latrobe City Council which contributes $3500 each to four neighbourhood houses.

Sale resident Richard Telling asked for the creation of sealed road in Sale from Guthridge Parade to the South Gippsland Highway. Mr Telling estimated the project would cost $960,000.

The Rosedale Chamber of Commerce sought approval to install a permanent toilet facility at Willow Park.

Loch Sport Community Representative Group requested information regarding the upgrade of the Lake St children’s playground, Lions shelter replacement in Lake St, and pedestrian pathways.

Meanwhile, that town’s Men’s Shed made a submission, requesting financial support.

The Dargo Hall and Recreation Reserve committee of management requested $2980 to maintain the Dargo Swimming Hole Reserve.

Tarra Territory Tourism asked for the maintenance contribution for the Grand Strzelecki Track to be increased to $20,000, and funding for the construction of walking track between Alberton and Port Albert.

Sale resident Carol Glover objected to the proposed rate increase and excessive spending.

Bicycle Network commended council on its commitment to cycling.

Be amazed by the intricacy of felt making at a localexhibition at the Old Fire Station, Kiama over the June Long Weekend.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

More than 20 local artists will showcase theirskills at the Illawarra Feltmakers Exhibitionon June 8-13by creating an art form that symbolises this years theme, ‘reflections.’

Secretary Melinda Binkins said the exhibition will be unique with a number of original artworks.

“All the members try and come up with something that is a reflection to them, whichcan be interpreted in a number of ways,” she said.“Everyone finds the challengeimportant, but what it means is you are going to get a diverse range of items from clothing to sculptures.”

Members will travel from as far as Newcastle to participate in the 5thannual exhibition to demonstrate the artistry of felt making.

Ms Binkins said a number of demonstrations will occur throughout the display.

“We will be showing people what you can do with wool as a lot of people don’t understand that felt is made from it,” she said.“Many people haven’t seen an exhibition in felt makingso this will show them the benefits of the felt intricacy, which was the first fabric created by man.”

Despite the rainfall over the past week, Illawarra Feltmakers treasurer Eleanor Bash is optimistic it won’t cloud the exhibition.

“Hopefully the rain will hold off but if it doesn’t, that’s ok because we have the warmth at the exhibition!” she said.“People will be pleasantly surprised if it’s a cold day to come in and see the brightness of colours and the array of things that have been done.”

The exhibition is set to be filled with an array of colours in the shape of handbags,hats,dresses, jackets andgloves.As itis a malleable material, Ms Bash said it can be moulded into anything.

“We take it from the raw fleece and by a combination of friction, water and soap turn it into a 3D object,” she said.“On the whole it is made usingone piece, which canshaped to create a number of things. Some have even done lamp shades.

“This generally surprises people who tend to think ‘felting – how boring’ but it’s as far from that as you could imagine.”

For people interested in taking up the art form, Ms Bash said they will be able to learn.“Anybody whois interested in knowing what the technique is behind felting can expect someone to be there lending a hand during the exhibition.’’

For members of the Illawarra Feltmakers, the benefits are countless.

“Feltingis quite therapeutic,” said Ms Bash.

“In the process there is quite a bit of repetitive work and I use it as an opportunityto listen to classical music,so I find itrestful.

The Cannonballs (pictured here against the Gaolers) lost 43-5 to the Hastings Vikings
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

HASTINGS Valley Vikings overcame cyclonic conditions at Oxley Oval to register a comfortable 43-5 win over Kempsey Cannonballs in Port Macquarieon Saturday. The home side had added benefit of a howling nor-easterly breeze in the first half and camped in the Cannonballs half.

They led 38-0 at the break and toughed it out in the second stanza for the win.

Kempsey Cannonballs president Brad Taylor said the game was not really indicative of the club’s recent performances.

“We just could not hold onto the ball, the conditions were pretty bad but it was the same for both sides,” Taylor said.

“Coaches Allan Nugent and Jared Fuller were not happy the team played too much sideways and not forward.

“It was the same in reserve grade, they have been going well of late but didn’t handle the conditions,”

Taylor was full of praise for the under 16 Cannonballs coached by Misimoa Tavete.

“They had a fantastic 70-12 win, Misimoa has them going really well. They are disciplined and fit and it is exciting because these kids are the future of the club.”

Vikings coach Coach Mark Howard paid tribute to his side’s attitudewhen they found themselves defending their own line stoutly. “When you play in those sorts of conditions it’s all about mental attitude, adapting, rolling the sleeves up and grinding it out.”

Wool classer: Alan Curtis, with his grandchildren, Gemma and Jarrod Thomas. Photo: provided by Alan Curtis, junior.The funeral of legendary Riverina-based wool classer,Alan Desmond Curtis, who was born on 29 January 1929, was held at YerongCreek on Monday 23 May 2016.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Affectionately known by his friends as ‘The Phantom’, Mr Curtis was remembered as a large character who made an enormouscontribution to the wool industry and the Yerong Creek community.

His nickname came from his uncanny ability to observe his staff without them being aware, and was thus able to have a quietinfluence over their work habits.

Born in Melbourne, Mr Curtis was two years-old when his father died and he was sent to live with extended family in Brocklesby so his mother (EthelKirwan) could return to work to support her family.

Mr Curtis moved to “Polygonwood”, Yerong Creek, when his mother remarried and he would call Yerong Creek home for nearly 75 years.

As a young lad, during a dry summer, he was contracted by a neighbour to cart water with a horse and a Furphy Cart from the governmenttank (dam), bucketing the water into the cart and then filling the trough for the sheep in the paddock.

This was the beginning of a life working on the land and valuing community participation.

“He was never afraid of the hard work and somehow managed to wrap a whole lot of fun and mischief into his life,” his son Roger recallswith affection.

“He made people laugh, he was a master storyteller, a brilliant sportsman playing AFL, rugby, cricket, golf, tennis and of course bowls.”

Working on the land in due course led Mr Curtis to seek a career as a wool classer.

Work all day on the farm, Mr Curtis would ride his horse ‘Sam” into Henty to attend wool classing classes and he was successful inobtaining his wool classing qualification, awarded the 22nd stencil issued.

By the time he was 18 Mr Curtis was travelling to woolsheds over most of NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and NZ and this routine continuedduring his long career.

“His ability to asses the quality of the wool with his hands was amazing,” his son Roger said.

“Wool buyers rated the top ten wool classer’s in Australia and Dad was in the top ten for most of his career.

“His stencil on a bale made it more valuable.”

The first shed in which Mr Curtis classed the wool was the community shearing shed at Yerong Creek, followed by the annual shearing at“Corawartha”, near Walbundrie owned by Horace Trethowan.

The shearing shed at “Wentworth”, Cookardinia, owned by Horace’s grandsonDavid Trethowan, was the last in which Mr Curtis applied his number tothe pressed bales before he retired.

Among many properties across southern NSW in which Mr Curtis classed the annual shearing, there were many significant propertieswhich included “Bulls Run”, Wagga Wagga, “Caragabal”, West Wyalong and “Irish Lords”, Ivanhoe.

Besides his career in woolsheds, Mr Curtis was active in the Woolclasser’s Association, serving as President and Secretary at varioustimes, and guiding it for many many years until it was taken over by the AWU.

Mr Curtis also spent time each year classing sheep and travelling to sales to help woolgrowers get the best from their flocks and improvetheir bloodlines and profitability.

His son Roger recalls his father was a hard task master in the shed and expected everyone to give their best and do the job right.

“This attitude resulted in quality product and reflected in the price that his stencil on a bale achieved,” he said.

“Working in the shearing shed under his gaze perfected his ability to assess people in an instant and giving them a nickname that summedup their character.

“Those nicknames seemed to stick and he would always use them rather than their real name.”

Immersing himself in the life of the village of Yerong Creek, Mr Curtis mowed nature strips, planted and watered trees, pushing for the localcouncil to help make this small town a great one.

His son Roger recalls his father was on the committee that saw the first turf cricket pitch constructed in country NSW come to YerongCreek, becoming the home of the Wagga Wagga district cricket finals for many years until Wagga Wagga had its own turf pitch built.

“Between sheds you would find him out on a tractor working up for seeding, building fences or getting a group together to cut wood soeveryone would have their winter supplies,” he said.

“In among the hard physical work of these tasks there was a lot of teasing, story telling and laughter.

“Dad would take us for a drive around the district when we went home to visit and he would look at the crop and tell you how many bags tothe acre a paddock was going to harvest.”

Apparently his predictions were usually close to the mark.

His son Roger Curtis said his father has been nominated by David Trethowan for admission to “The Shearers Hall Of Fame” for his contribution to the wool industry inAustralia.

“We are looking for more information and stories as to his involvement with the Grazcos Sheds and his terms as President andSecretary of “The Woolclassers Association”, Roger Curtis said.

TweetFacebookGeelong StarFederal Shadow Minister Joel Fitzgibbon wasin Batemans Bay on Thursdayto speak to recreational fishers about the Geelong Star Super Trawler, which the Labor party is opposed to.Along with Gilmore candidate Fiona Phillips, Mr Fitzgibbion held a forum at the Soldiers Club.

Mrs Phillips said about 50 people attended the forum. “I don’t think anyone there was in support of the super trawler,” she said.“It was very good and a lot of issues were discussed.The main focus was on the trawler and how we can stop it.”

As the Labor shadow Minister for Forestry, Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Affairs, Mr Fitzgibbon said his party opposed super trawlers and criticisedGilmore MP, Ann Sudmalis for her lack of action on the issue.

“Labor has been fighting the super trawlers since 2012 ,” he said. “We will continue to oppose the operation of super trawlers until such time it can be demonstrated clearly and scientifically that they do no harm.”

It was towards the end of last year that the Labor governmenttried to move a motion in the senate to continue the suspension of Geelong Star’s activities.Atied vote meant the motion was defeated, and the trawler was allowed to resume its operation.

Mr Fitzgibbon said the fight against super trawlers wasfar from over, citing the lack of scientific evidence in favour of itsactivities.

“Labor maintains its commitment to ensure super trawlers don’t have adverse affects on our recreational fishing stocks and our pelagic fisheries,” he said“We will continue to oppose the operation of super trawlers until such time it can be demonstrated clearly and scientifically that they do no harm.If in doubt, leave it out.”

Member for Eden-MonaroPeter Hendy meanwhileis in the sights of Eurobodalla councillor Gabi Harding, following his failure to oppose the return of the factory trawler Geelong Star.

“I will be putting a Notice of Motion to Eurobodalla Council, that the council write to Dr Hendy and Ann Sudmalis requesting that he oppose any further activity of super trawlers in our coastal waters.”Similar Motions were passed recently in Bega Valley and Shoalhaven councils.
