New landmark: this 34m-tall crane will be a fixture at the Kempsey District Hospital redevelopment project until early next year. Picture by Todd Connaughton.

Installation of the on-site tower crane began on Wednesday and took 24 hours to complete.

It is an electric hammerhead crane that is operated by a crane operator sitting in a cabin at the top of the structure.

The crane will sit above the height of the new building and will be used to lift materials such as formwork, scaffolding, plasterboard, steelwork and also equipment needed for the construction of the new building.

The crane has a 60m long boom and it reaches 34m above the ground.

It can lift a load of four tonnes at the furthest point on the boom.

The crane will be a fixture on the site until early next year.

The Kempsey District Redevelopment began in December 2013 and it is scheduled for completion in late 2016.

When Teagan Couper’s father Noel was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, his family felt secure that his life insurance policy would be enough to financially compensate his death.

Soon after the Shellharbour man’s terminal diagnosis, however, they discovered the high-risk policy recommended by the Commonwealth Bank was in fact almost devoid of funds.

Mrs Couper challenged the bank through the courts – and won – on the eve of Noel Stevens’ death.

But the matter was not settled there, with the Commonwealth Bank launching an appeal just before Mrs Couper buried her father.

Mrs Couper and her family won a second time. “It was horrendous,” the young mother of two said.

“We were treated like nobody. My dad was fighting with cancer at the time,” she told Fairfax Media. “They just treated us like ants basically.”

The bank is on record as saying it “regrets” putting Mr Stevens in that type of policy, but Mrs Couper said she has yet to receive any kind of apology. Mrs Couper is one of many victims of alleged fraud, cover-ups and forgery by rogue Commonwealth Bank advisers around the country.

The clients have been buoyed by the news that a Senate committee has recommended a royal commission into the banking giant’s conduct beset up.

Daryll Tenni’s 79-year-old father, Myles Tenni, lost $350,000 in retirement savings. “Dad’s day is done, I just hope we can get something back,” said Mr Tenni.

A royal commission would mean that many other victims may be able to recoup some of their investments.

Commonwealth Bank whistleblower Jeff Morris estimates that there could be up to 60,000 victims of rogue financial advisers in the financial planning arms of the Commonwealth Bank, Financial Wisdom and Commonwealth Financial Services.

Big Hill in Stawell. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERA STATE Government-appointed panel will start hearing submissions on the proposal to open cut mine Stawell landmark Big Hill on Wednesday.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

About 44 people have asked to be heard by the panel, which will also hear from State Government departments, the Environment Protection Authority and Stawell Gold Mines owner Crocodile Gold.

The hearing will start at 10am in Federation University’s Stawell campus in Sloane Street.

It will run for about 11 days.

The panel will also consider 350 written submissions made in response to the project’s environmental effects statement.

It will also consider submissions from Crocodile Gold and call on experts if required.

The hearing will incorporate site visits.

Headed by chairwoman Jennifer Moles, the four-person inquiry panel had a directions hearing in Stawell early this month to establish procedures for the panel hearing.

Stawell Gold Mines manager Troy Cole encouraged Stawell and district residents to attend the hearing,

“This hearing is open to the public and we would encourage anyone interested in the Big Hill Enhanced Development Project to come along and learn first-hand how the project will operate, how it will benefit Stawell and how the community can be involved with the rehabilitation of Big Hill,” he said.

“This hearing will cover all aspects of the proposal, from noise, blasting, rehabilitation, economics and social impacts to air quality assessment and peer review, public health effects and real time air emissions monitoring and response.

“Anything anyone wants to know about the proposal will be addressed during the 11 or so days.”

Mr Cole said the panel would take a number of weeks to report to the Planning Minister, who would make a decision on the proposal.

He said Stawell Gold Mines wanted to work with the Stawell community on the project.

“This project is mutually beneficial to Stawell and our company – it will create employment, bring people to the area and lead to the rehabilitation of Big Hill itself,” he said.

He said people could freecall 1800 771 729, email [email protected]苏州美甲美睫培训学校.au or visit www.crocgold苏州美甲美睫培训学校 for more information about the project, or for updates and a timetable for the panel hearing.

Dear Editor,
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

I refer to the letter from Mr Will Mitchell of the 25/6/14 and wish to address some concerns I have regarding its content.

I understood from the information given to us in the agenda for the Engineering Committee Meeting, held on May 27 that the two mowers being discussed, were both four wheel drive.

According to Mr Mitchell, this was not the case and one of the mowers was not 4WD.

As councillors we can only respond to the information provided to us at the time of the meetings. If the information is incorrect, that is no fault of thecouncillor.

I am well aware the safety of any worker is paramount to anything else and I am not so witless enough to recommend the purchase of any unsuitable or unsafe machinery.

I think it also worth noting that Mr Mitchell is of the opinion that the use of a Toro Groundmaster 7210 in some cases would be negligent to the operators safety.

If this is the case, why did his company quote this model mower for the type of mowing he was aware of, as he actually demonstrated the mower on site. I am sure Toro will be interested in Mr Mitchell’s observations.

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has been banned for nine international matches and from any football-related activity for four months. Photos: Getty ImagesWorld football’s governing body FIFA has acted swiftly to ban rogue Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez for nine international matches and from any football-related activity for four months.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Suarez brought international opprobrium on himself when he bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay’s 1-0 win over the Azzuri on Tuesday.

The victory saw La Celeste through to the knockout round of the World Cup, where they will face Colombia on Saturday night, while Italy were sent home as a result of the loss.

The ban will also mean that Suarez once again misses several matches at the start of Liverpool’s next Premier League campaign.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee said in a statement that Suarez was guilty of ‘unsporting conduct towards another player’.

“The player Luis Suarez is to be suspended for nine (9) official matches. The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming FIFA World Cup fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay’s next FIFA World Cup match(es), as long as the team qualifies, and/or in the representative team’s subsequent official matches….”

“The player Luis Suarez is banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of four (4) months”

”A stadium ban is pronounced against the player Luis Suarez … the player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium during the period of the ban. The player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium in which the representative team of Uruguay is playing while he has to serve the nine-match suspension”.

“Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field.

In addition, Suarez has been fined 100,000 Swiss Francs ($118,876).

“The Disciplinary Committee took into account all the factors of the case and the degree of Mr Suárez’s guilt in accordance with the relevant provisions of the (disciplinary) Code. The decision comes into force as soon it is communicated,” said Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.

The Uruguayan FA will appeal against the ruling, but Suarez cannot play even if a challenge is lodged. The imposition of the fine could be delayed pending the appeal.

Suarez is one of the most gifted players in world football, scoring 31 league goals in 33 games for Liverpool last season.

He returned from a month on the sidelines with an injury to score twice in Uruguay’s 2-1 win over England last week, transforming the team’s World Cup which began with a loss to Costa Rica in a game Suarez missed through injury.

But he is also one of the game’s most troubled players and has been banned twice previously for biting opponents.

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo had no sympathy.

“Football must set an example and show examples of good players,” he told reporters. “People who are out of line must be punished.

“If my little children bit me, they are sent to the dark room with the big bad wolf. This is football’s equivalent.”

Suarez will not be able to train or attend matches with Liverpool until late October, a huge blow to their domestic and European ambitions.

“Liverpool Football Club will wait until we have seen and had time to review the FIFA Disciplinary Committee report before making any further comment,” Liverpool chief executive officer Ian Ayre said on the club’s website.

Adidas, who have used Suarez in a frontline promotion role in recent months, said it would stop using him in adverts for the rest of the World Cup.

“Adidas fully backs FIFA’s decision,” a spokeswoman said. “We do not accept the recent behaviour of Luis Suarez and shall remind him of the high standards we expect of our players.

“We have no plan to use Suarez for any other marketing activities during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.”

Dear Editor,
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

IN reply to Betty Brown’s letter in last Friday’s paper, regarding reserving plots and niches at our cemetery.

When anyone reserves a plot for burial or niche in the wall after cremation, that money is immediately used for the maintenance of our cemetery, which is one of the nicest in our area especially our lawn cemetery. Council is not double dipping, as that money is not invested, but used to maintain the grounds, as rates do not cover cemetery cost. Surely people do not expect after 20 or 30 years, that there would be no further cost for up keeping it all those years.

The cost of funerals has tripled over of the last 25 years and so has wages and maintenance. At this time we have 60 niches reserved which may never be used and Council had to build an extra wall to accommodate recent cremations. So too with plots, there are many unused plots, as families move away we are unable to contact them, to find out if they are still required by their family. Those plots also may never be used, and in time Council has to purchase new land to extend the needs of the community, while the unused reserved plots remain.

I agree that this is a very emotional subject, and we all like to have our affairs in order, so as not to burden those left behind. But with increased costs, Council is not in a position to carry the increases over 20 or 30 or more years.

A portion of each burial cost or niche in the wall is used for maintenance of the cemetery; that is roads, water supply, fencing and mowing. All of these activities continue whether the plot or niche is used or not.

Hopefully this information makes things a little clearer at a time when families are most vulnerable and emotional. If you have a reserved niche in the wall, or a plot, please contact Council and be informed as to your situation regarding cost.

From CADAS to London

By
July 9th, 2018

CATCHING UP: CADAS Kids coordinator Jenny Roberts, hosted Ian Brash while he was back in the district this week. Many, many former CADAS Kids return to see Jenny speaking highly of their time with the group and the benefits and skills it afforded them. NOW working for Sky Sports in London, Ian Brash developed his love of presenting right here with CADAS Kids.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Ian was back in town this week to meet up with old friends and join in the 50 years of RVN/Prime celebrations in Wagga last weekend.

A student of Cootamundra High School, Ian graduated in 1987.

He always had an interest in television but being a boy from Cootamundra had no idea how to break into the industry.

High School careers advisor at the time Neil McDonald recommended that he join CADAS Kids as a way of learning about lighting, sound and other aspects of entertainment.

He took to acting like a duck to water and ended up in the Raggedy Anne and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory performances, however it was the backstage aspect which interested Ian the most.

From Cootamundra he landed his dream gig working as a ‘broadcast production trainee’ at RVN in Wagga.

He started the day after Australia Day 1988 meaning he was launched right into the the Bicentenary celebrations.

During his two year traineeship he, like all trainees of the day, did six month rotations through different departments experiencing film, sound, studio camera and video camera.

“I realised this is for me,” Ian said and his career was born.

Ian was around for aggregation in 1989 when extra television channels were introduced. Prior to aggregation there were only two television stations in the district, RVN and ABC so the advancement certainly opened up a whole new world of television to the viewing public.

“At Wagga, we worked hard and discipline was a key,” Ian said.

“That discipline is something I have carried with me my whole career,” he added.

Always proud to be a Coota boy, Ian said he has been honoured to fly the flag for Cootamundra in his time working in Wagga, Auckland and London.

“In Wagga, Cootamundra, and in particular Coota High, had a really good reputation,” Ian said.

This grounding in media made Ian a perfect candidate when he decided to spread his wings and head to Auckland to work for TVNZ.

From there he headed to London – widely regarded as the hub of television.

With Sky Sports, his behind-the-scenes role involves looking out for new technology. He spends time travelling the world to different trade shows to see the latest items on the market.

His job has given him the opportunity to see plenty of sports events live

including the first ever Super League game.

As an Aussie and a New Zealander he was automatically allocated rugby league and fell into this niche well.

“Australians and Kiwis in the UK have a reputation for being hard workers,” Ian said.

He flew home to London last week.

Others familiar RVN faces

A HOST of Cootamundra people made their way through RVN over the same years as Ian including James Baker, a cameraman. James was captain of Cootamundra High School in 1985 and went on to be a newsreader at Channel 10 before studying journalism and later returning to Wagga as a presenter. Ian Cartwright was in the same year as James and also worked as a cameraman. Sean Daly, a Catholic School boy before heading off to boarding school, worked in advertising sales at RVN. With a committment to hiring junior staff from the local district back in the day, these were just some of the local people who made their way through RVN, which is celebrating 50 years.

Strong winds cause damage

By
July 9th, 2018

Mount William in the Grampians recorded wind gusts above one hundred kilometres per hour earlier this week.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Trees bend almost to the point of breaking on top of Mt William.

The wind gusts, recorded mostly overnight on Sunday, were the highest in the state.

Wind gusts at Mt William reached a staggering 128km/h shortly after midnight on Sunday – the strongest gusts recorded in Victoria as at 11am Monday.

A strong cold front over southwestern Victoria reached the Grampians region early on Monday morning and spread to the central areas of the state in the afternoon and the northeast by the evening.

Strong to gale force northerly winds ahead of the front shifted west to northwesterly following the front, delivering rainfall in Stawell, Halls Gap and surrounding region.

Snow down to 600 metres was originally predicted on Monday night as the colder air spread across the state. This was later revised to falls being expected down to 700m.

This meant snow did fall on Mt William in the Grampians, attracting plenty of sightseers during the early morning on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the front also brought with it damaging winds, which once again reached above 100km/h at Mt William on Tuesday, combined with heavy rain.

The wild conditions saw State Emergency Service volunteers in Stawell and Ararat attend to numerous incidents, including clearing fallen trees from roadways and assisting residents who had reported damage at their homes.

In conditions similar to these, the State Emergency Service advises that people should:

Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.

Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.

Keep clear of fallen power lines.

For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
