It was John’s first attempt at National Level Paratriathlon and he has got the attention of the AIS.

Although slightly disappointed at a close second, it has just encouraged John to train harder and work towards the gold medal.

It just brings me so much closer to my International Rivals” said John. Picture shows John proudly wearing his silver medal.

Power boom at Tailem

File photo.A $200 million solar power plant will be established at Tailem Bend following a Power Purchase Agreement betweenAsian independent renewable energy developer and investor Equis and Australian company Snowy Hydro Limited.
Nanjing Night Net

The projectwill see the development of a 100-megawatt utility scale solar photovoltaic plant which will supply power equivalent to the annual needs of 39,000 homes.

An area on the site will also be reserved for a potential 100-megawatt battery storage unit which would increase stability of the power supply.

It will be constructed alongside a 28-megawatt diesel-fired power station south-east of the town at aLime Kiln Road property already owned by Snowy Hydro Limited.

Currently, the projectis atthe development approval stage.

Pending approval, construction is expected to commence early this year, it is anticipated that the construction period will take about 66 weeks and the plantshould be up and running in mid 2018.

Equis Group Chief Executive Officer David Russell saidthe Tailem Bend Solar Project represents an exciting expansion into Australia for Equis and aunique opportunity to leverage the company’sdevelopment and construction expertise to deliver low cost, large scale, reliable renewable energy for Australian consumers.

“By developing the Tailem Bend Solar Project and Snowy Hydro diesel projects together, the combined system will have the capability of providing stable power any time of the day across the entire year.”

“In addition, the Tailem Bend Solar Project has been developed to facilitate large scale battery storage further enhancing the base loadlike nature of the projects,” Mr Russell said.

It is expected to make a positive economic contribution to local, regional and national economies.

Coorong District Council Chief Executive Officer Vincent Cammell said the solar development is expected to boost employment in the region.

“Employment throughout the construction is expected to be about 200 people over 12-18 months,” he said.

He said there should be about 3-5 permanent jobs plus various contract jobs once the construction is completed.

The development is expected to add pressure to Tailem Bend’s accommodation facilities as well as Murray Bridge’s, increasing rental income during the construction period.

Community rises against domestic violence

RISING UP: Josephine Rechichi (right) says domestic violence rates in western Sydney are “alarmingly high”. Picture: Heath Parkes-HuptonUsually a day to celebrate love, Valentine’s Day will take on a different meaning fordomestic violence activists in western Sydney this year.
Nanjing Night Net

Domestic violence awareness event One Billion Rising will come to Blacktown on February 14 as rates of household abuse continue to soar in Sydney’s west.

WASH House’s Josephine Rechichi said holding the event on Valentine’s Daywouldhelp“take back the day” for women and girls affected by family violence.

“We need to stand together as a unified voice,” Ms Rechichisaid.“Rates of domestic violence in western Sydney are alarmingly high.

“Holding the event on Valentine’s Day is significant as it highlights what a respectful relationship should look like.

“Statistics show that women and girls are more likely to be abused by partners than anyone else.”

The event was named in honour of the estimated one billion women around the world who will experience violence in their lifetime.

TAFE student and event organiser Daniel McCormick said the whole community was needed to end domestic violence.

“Now more than ever, we need men to be an active part of the solution,” he said.

“The stats don’t lie, violence against women is a men’s issue, and violence against women is often at the hands of men who say,‘I love you’.

“All of us men need to stand side by side with women and One Billion Rising is a great opportunity to do that.”

To be held at Blacktown’sWestern Sydney TAFE NirimbaCampus, the event was organised by WASH House and Outer West Domestic Violence Network.

Suburbs including Blacktown and Mount Druitt are among the worst in NSW for rates of household abuse.

There were more than 2000 recorded cases of domestic violence in the Blacktown area over the 12-month period ending September 2016, according to aNSW Bureau of Crime Statistics report.

More than 70 people women died as a result of domestic violence in Australia last year.

“We wanted to start in Blacktown because the main organisers are based in the area, but we plan to move it around western Sydney every year,” Ms Rechichi said.

One Billion Rising Western Sydney will be held on Tuesday, February 14 at Western Sydney TAFE Nirimba Campus, from 11amto 1.30pm.

Roosters board responds to Wilson withdrawal

How artist Josh hall saw the unfolding turmoil at North Ballarat Football ClubRELATED COVERAGEWilson after a return as North Ballarat chairmanPeter Wilson only nomination for NBFC chairman’s rolePeter Wilson’s hopes to lead a new-look North Ballarat Football Club board of management in the pursuit of securing the Roosters’ long-term future in the VFL are over.
Nanjing Night Net

Wilson has withdrawn his nomination to take on the role of chairman after six members of his ticket were deemed ineligible to stand for the board.

The former chairman was set to return to the position, which he held for more than decade up to and through the Roosters’ premiership years of 2008, 2009 and 2010, after being the only candidate when nominations closed on January 24.

Wilson told The Courier on Wednesday that he had reluctantly pulled out after an extraordinary meeting of the outgoing board of management determined more than half of his support group of 10 were no longer eligible to stand or vote in the upcoming election.

He said the board had ruled that to eligible to stand for the board or vote, members must have been paid up before October 31 – as set out in the rules of the club.

Wilson said while this was the rule, he questioned its “real” intent.

He said the date had been set in the days when the club’s annual meeting was held late in the year to ensure members were paid up at least a month beforehand.

With the 2016-17 annual meeting not taking place until Tuesday, February 21, this lead-up time now been extended to three months.

Anyone signed since a Roosters’ membership drive was launched in early November with the objective of making North Ballarat long-term presence in the VFL financially viable will be unable to vote in the election when it opens on Friday and runs until February 19.

Wilson said the decision to stand by the October deadline was also in conflict with a letter sent to members by interim chairman Shaune Moloney on January 3 that stated new members needed to join by January 24 to be eligible to vote.

The October deadline ruled out Judy Verlin, Justin Kroussoratis, Ian Corcoran, David Shepherd, Andrew Oliver and Paul Bregazzi.

Wilson said while like himself Leigh Marriott, Tim Bodey, Tony Godfrey and John Polkinghorne were eligible to stand in the election, they had also withdrawn their nominations.

Wilson’s group are not the only casualties in the latest fall-out.

Moloney and fellow board member Stephen Jurica have also resigned – leaving just four members on the board in Di Nevett, Mark McGrath, Ray Gluyas and Richard Start.

Moloney, who is a former Roosters captain and premiership player, said he loved the club and had great affection for it, but he was not the right person to take the club forward.

He said he had also withdrawn his nomination for the board.

Board spokesman Richard Start said the board regrettedthe decision of former chairman Peter Wilson to withdraw his nomination.

“The board was looking forward to having Peter as chairman and working with him to rebuild the club’s financial position.

“However, we accept his decision, and will now focus on the upcoming election.”

Start said it was regrettable that six members of Wilson’s “ticket” did not meet nomination criteria under the club’s constitution.

“As a board, we had to abide by the rules of the constitution.

“The current board is unable to make amendments to those rules, but it may well be that a future board will move to clear up the anomaly that resulted in their ineligibility.

“They would certainly have been high-quality candidates,” he said.

Start said he, like all associated with the club, were deeply concerned at the current instability.

“It is a priority of the remaining board members to see the club through to the elections later this month, and thereafter work with the new board to restore the club to its rightful position as a strong and powerful force in football.

“The events of the past 18 months have been distressing for many people.

“We want to put all that behind us and move forward with confidence,” Start said.

Wilson said he had been buoyed to have rallied the support of a group people from the broader community and business sector to work for the Roosters, and it was disappointing they were not getting an opportunity to stand and hopefully help the club get through a difficult times for the benefit of others.

“This isn’t an easy decision.”

He said it had been well documented the club had financial issues and he certainly had fears for its future.

The departure of the Wilson-led group leaves uncertainty as to who will be the future chairman.

Wilson said that decision would be up to the newly elected board.

With the club having stated that based on privacy entitlements of individuals it is not prepared to public release the names of other nominations the board, it is unknown how the withdrawal of the Wilson group will impact the election.

A cloud has been hanging over the head of the Roosters since the NBFC board revealed during last season that it had a cash flow problem, resultingin it falling behind in player payments.

It was not until the first week in December that the board agreed to commit to have a team in the VFL in 2017.

Burns to spark a Redfern revival

That spark.
Nanjing Night Net

RUN, RABBIT, RUN: Bears junior Braidon Burns at Rabbitohs pre-season training. Photo: GETTY IMAGES

It’s something South Sydney lacked last year throughout a severe premiership hangover after their 2014 triumph, but Coonamble Bears productBraidon Burns believes he could be the man to provide the Rabbitohs with a much needed lift in 2017.

That spark.

The former Penrith Panther made the move from Sydney’s west to Redfern this season, seeking an opportunity that never arrived at the foot of the mountains.

At just 20 years of age, time isn’t an issue for Burns, but the rangy outside back is hopeful he’ll get a crack at the NRL in the early stages of the season.

He’ll press for that claim at this weekend’s Auckland Nines.

“I’ve been loving it,” Burns said.

“I didn’t really ever get a look in at the Panthers. It’s been a huge learning curve making the move over to Souths, but it’s been great.

“I’d love to make my debut in the first 10 rounds, get in there early. If I can give the team a few quick play-the-balls and get them on the front foot, a bit of a spark, then I think I’ve done my job.”

Departing for Auckland on Thursday morning, Burns said the 2015 champions weren’t going to make up the numbers, like some other NRL clubs have publicly admitted to.

“We’re going over to win it,” he said.

“We’ve really got into the processes of it all this week and we’re keen to get stuck into it.”

Burns revealed he’d trained at both fullback and wing for the Rabbitohs at pre-season training.

With Queensland and Australian representative Greg Inglis a moral for the Rabbits’ No.1 jumper come round one, a spot on the wing is a more likely avenue for Burns to make his debut.

The outside back, in the mould of Blake Ferguson –another Western Rams product –said he’d been impressed with the leadership of the side, which has been bolstered by the recruitment of NSW incumbent and Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah.

Premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire was also a key figure in the squad.

“He’s definitely process driven. The boys all buy into it though and we feed off it,” Burns said.

“They’ve all been impressive. Sam Burgess and Greg Inglis are the obvious leaders and do a lot of the talking, but a guy like Damien Cook, he’s the fittest at the club and pushes everyone for more.”

Nanjing Night Net

Jayfresh Australia – one of Australia’s leading mango exporters – is selling its Bowen mango aggregation, comprising 13,500 high yielding trees across three properties.

The properties include:Delta – a 4ha holding featuring 620 R2E2 mango trees with extensive fresh packing and shedding infrastructure in the prime logistics hub of Bowen; Euri Creek – a 56haproperty featuring 8000 R2E2 mango trees with accompanying shedding and a residence; and Beaumont Organic Farm – a 96haproperty featuring 5000 Kensington Pride mango trees with additional land suitable for additional mango plantings or other horticultural pursuits. Beaumont also boasts an integrated mango processing factory on site, able to produce dried and frozen mango cheeks and pasteurised puree and juice.

CBRE’s Phil Schell and Chris Holgar are selling the property in conjunction with local agents’ Landmark Bowen’s Rob Wilde and Gary Johns.

Mr Holgar said the opportunity to secure a presence in Australia’s mango capital would be strongly sought after.

“Located at the ‘top of the Whitsundays’, within two hours of Townsville and Mackay, and less than an hour from Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island, Bowen is home of the Big Mango– renown for producing the first Kensington Pride Mango in the late 1880s, and later the world renowned R2E2 variety,” Mr Holgar said.

“Bowen was also the first place in Australia to grow mango commercially, with Jayfresh’s Delta property thought to be Australia’s first commercial R2E2 orchard. The property boasts a well-earned reputation for producing consistently high quality and reliable supply worldwide.”

“Boasting both R2E2 and Organic Kensington Pride varieties – the best Australian varieties – this aggregation presents an exceptional opportunity for investors and horticultural operators looking to cement a strong position in both the local and export markets.”

The sale includes the Jayfresh Mango brand and over 20 years of export and domestic goodwill.

Immaculately maintained with top quality plant and equipment, the aggregation also provides an enviable lifestyle for owners and staff, including three residences set in stunning scenery amongthe Whitsunday coast’s best horticultural landholdings.

Mr Schell said the offering represented an attractive opportunity to capitalise on existing links in strong export markets.

“With R2E2 being the preferred export variety, highly regarded in the Chinese, Middle East and European markets for its large size and beautiful blush, this property represents an exceptional opportunity to further build on the strong connections in these growing markets,” Mr Schell said.

“The current Bowen aggregation provides scope to produce in excess of 100,000 cartons on R2E2 mangos, making it potentially the largest single producer of R2E2 in Australia.”

Experience will count

EXTRA FIREPOWER: Ryan Griffiths trains with the Wanderers squad after being signed by the club in the January transfer window. Western Sydney play Wellington on Saturday.RYAN Griffiths brings a lot to the Wanderers, but his experience in Asia will be invaluable.
Nanjing Night Net

It’s always a boost to have another attacking option at the club, even though you would like to have as much game time as possible.

They are crucial weeks ahead, trying to juggle a push for A-League finals, as well as starting our Asian Champions League campaign.

The ACL games are played in a completely different style, where a lot of Asian teams like to sit off you more andit’s not as physical.

It’s also about managing the home and away legs and qualifying for the knockout stages, so Ryan’s knowledge after playing in the top Asian leagues, including China, will be very important.

We’re without Lachy Scott this week, among others, as part of the Young Socceroos commitments, so Ryan comes into the squad at an important time.

After playing against Ryan in China, I’ve also played with his brother Joel and used to live with brother Adam while in Belgium.

So I’m familiar with the family, how Ryan plays and confident he will score some important goals.

After the trip to Brisbane, we spent a long day travelling to New Zealand.

We left Sydney early on Thursday morning and didn’t make it to Plymouth, where we will play against the Phoenix, until 7pm New Zealand time.

But after the disappointment of conceding the late goal to lose toBrisbane, we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to take three points away on Saturday.

The Jets win over Melbourne City has further complicated the finals picture, though we’re only two points behind them and one behind the Phoenix.

However, we’ve been playing too well over the past month to be denied the wins we need for too much longer.

They will come.

It was frustrating against Brisbane, to fight back and equalise, then be down to 10 men for the final minutes.

Scott Neville’s second yellow became our fifth red for the season, as I’ve been guilty of myself, having spent three weeks on the sidelines as a result.

They become very costly when you’re fighting for important points and concede a late goal like on Saturday.

The coach (Tony Popovic) is big on enforcing discipline among the squad, so he’s disappointed at the send-offs we’ve had and expects more from us. It was all the more difficult to accept the loss when (Roar goalkeeper)Theo made a great save to stop my shot and then I was denied a penalty at 1-all.

I was pulled back three times, but they are the decisions which sometimes just don’t come when you’re fighting for form and momentum.

And playing in the ACL will be a key part of it, sometimes juggling two competitions can be a handful.But we’re confident performing well in the ACL will help ensure we make the A-League finals as well.

Rivals teams, fans and criticsshould not underestimate us, even though the season hasn’t reached the heights we would have liked so far.

The argument tony Popovic has achieved all he can at the Wanderers is a little bit silly.

He’s built this teamfrom a blank piece of paper and in five years has achieved amazing success, the envy of the competition.

ACL trophies, as well as Premier’s Plates do not come easily.Popa has also knocked back offers from overseas to continue his mission here and hopefully he will still be around to see us win the grand final as well.
