Bus stop move dismay

December 16th, 2018

IT is a matter of concern to the National Council of Women, Launceston, that at the instigation of Cityprom an investigation is under way on the possible relocation of the two main bus stations in St John Street, as a means of stimulating business and minimising undesirable behaviour in the city centre.

A number of our members are frequents users of the bus services and they believe that moving the interchanges from the St John Street sites could make bus travel less convenient and deter people from travelling into the city on buses, especially if they are relocated to the Cimitiere Street Transit Centre.

For elderly and infirm people and parents with young children this is a three-block walk, uphill, before reaching the CBD – a considerable deterrent.

Such a change, rather than being beneficial to CBD businesses could mean the loss of many customers.

If the main problem of concern to Cityprom is poor behaviour in the CBD at certain hours of the day, perhaps this could be overcome by an increased police presence in the city at those times.

– BERNICE MCKENNA, President, National Council of Women, Launceston.

North Bendigo’s Cameron Moore.ELMORE V LOCKINGTON-BAMAWM UNITED – 2.15pm Saturday at Elmore.

Last time: Round 3, 2014: LBU 24.19 (163) d Elmore 4.15 (39).

Since 2001: LBU 21; Elmore 12.

ELMORE – after having the bye last week, the Bloods have had time to dust themselves off from the disappointment of losing to Heathcote a fortnight ago.

Following the defeat to the Saints, the Bloods are now the only winless team in the HDFL.

Hard to see that changing on Saturday against the three-time defending premiers.

LBU – belted Heathcote by 107 points last week in a win that moved the Cats back to their familiar position at the top of the ladder.

The Cats were again at their defensive best against the Saints, conceding only four goals.

Marcus Angove has been their best player twice in the past three games.

COLBINABBIN V MOUNT PLEASANT – 2.15pm Saturday at Huntly.

Last time: Round 3, 2014: Colbinabbin 15.9 (99) d Mount Pleasant 5.11 (41).

Since 1995: Colbinabbin 29; Mount Pleasant 23.

COLBINABBIN – lost their past two games, but other results are going their way and they are still only one game outside the top five.

Would be disappointed to have lost their past two matches to Leitchville and LBU the past fortnight in what were a pair of games up for grabs at three quarter-time. Must bounce back against their old rivals.

MOUNT PLEASANT – were ordinary against North Bendigo three weeks ago in a 77-point hiding.

But have rebounded strongly from that performance with back-to-back wins over Huntly and White Hills keeping them on the cusp of the top three.

Won’t take the Grasshoppers lightly after the Good Friday debacle in round three.

HEATHCOTE V LEITCHVILLE-GUNBOWER – 2.15pm Saturday at Heathcote.

Last time: Round 3, 2014: Leitchville-Gunbower 23.11 (149) d Heathcote 3.9 (27).

Since 2010: Heathcote 7; Leitchville-Gunbower 3.

HEATHCOTE – there has been plenty of tough Saturday afternoons this season for Heathcote, and there was another last week.

The Saints’ 107-point loss to LBU was their fourth of the season in triple figures.

Kyle Seidel, Darcy McLean and Daniel Carroll all continue to perform admirably against the odds for the Saints.

LEITCHVILLE-GUNBOWER – still holding onto their top three position following their third win in a row over Colbinabbin last week.

Have been off target the past two games against Colbinabbin and White Hills, kicking a combined 23.35, but have been able to get away with it.

You’d rather be missing shots than not having them at all.

WHITE HILLS V NORTH BENDIGO – 2.15pm Saturday at White Hills.

Last time: Round 3, 2014: White Hills 13.13 (91) d North Bendigo 8.14 (62).

Since 1996: North Bendigo 23; White Hills 18.

WHITE HILLS – had the HDFL standing up and taking notice three weeks ago when they defeated LBU by 10 points.

However, the Demons haven’t been able to capitalise on that win, losing to Mount Pleasant and Leitchville the past fortnight and leaving them vulnerable in fifth position.

Still the only side to beat North Bendigo this year.

NORTH BENDIGO – you can bet the Bulldogs will be snarling on Saturday.

They come up against the only team to have beaten them so far – the Demons – who they lost to by 29 points at home in round three.

Since then, Sportsbet’s $3 flag favourites have won seven games in a row by an average of 59 points.

Pomonal Market heartwarming

December 16th, 2018

It may not be the warmth of summer, it’s now the time when we like to huddle by the fire at home.

You will find all you need at the Pomonal Village Market this Sunday.

However, the Pomonal Market this Sunday will be heart warming and the fire in the hall will temper the fresh air we need.

Pomonal Village Market will be in full swing inside and also in the grounds – from 10am-2pm.

There’s so much to see and buy – all at modest prices. There’ll be many hundreds of secondhand books, CDs, tapes, and vintage LPs, lots of collectable china, pottery and glass, a lovely array of plants and seeds and the friendly growers – all locals – will help you with your gardening queries.

A family mishap prevented Philip Vaughn from being with us last month, but he hopes to be on deck with his breathtaking range of natives and his bush food plants which many are keen to experience.

There will be heritage flower and vegetable seeds supplied by Seed Saver Network member Rosemary Stevenson.

There will also be fresh fruit and vegetables, locally sourced or grown, delicious slices, biscuits, nut loaves, scones, cakes, toffees and fudge, exciting foods from Berenberg Farm, a variety of salamis, honey, eggs, the list is mind-boggling. Also in the food line, the fundraising sausage sizzle will be running again, as well as hot soups, tea and coffee plus inexpensive lunches which can be enjoyed by the open fire in the hall.

As well, there will be costume jewellery of all kinds, handspun English Leicester yarns, as well as scarves, berets, beanies, stoles and shawls, fleece, all sorts of fashion items including silk scarves, wraps and headgear, belts, purses and handbags, handmade greeting cards, as well as Christian literature, pre-loved and new children’s toys and clothing.

Chess team gets results

December 16th, 2018

STUDIED MOVE: Jesse James Kerrigan and Axel Robinson face off with chess team members Cameron Davies, Ben Ellis, Taine Riley and Josh Childs watching on.GETTING beaten by a kid at chess can be ego-bruising for an adult. That’s exactly what happened to Inverell High School’s chess co-ordinator, Margie Ferris. Not that her ego suffered; she’s pleased and proud of the students that bested her.

“I have now had to call in my husband to provide some coaching as he is able to analyse their strengths and weaknesses and target their development.

“I am also really impressed by dedication of our year 7 players this year. Chess club is once per week but these kids spend a lot of other recesses and lunch times playing chess and as a result they are making great improvement.”

Mrs Ferris said the club offers students of all skill levels a chance to improve their thinking and attention skills as well as inspiring their competitive spirit.

The team is currently engaged in the Country Secondary Schools Knock-out Chess Teams Competition. Last year Inverell High School was eliminated in the first round by Holy Trinity, but this year, they are holding their own.

Competing in teams of four, they rousted Holy Trinity 4-nil in the first round, Emmaville 4-nil in the second round and won 2.5 to 1.5 over Narrabri. Besides Inverell, two teams from Tamworth and one from Armidale remain.

To have a place on the competition team, students play against each other. Mrs Ferris said their Warwick Hodkinson, year 10, year 8 students Taine Riley and Ben Ellis, and Axel Robinson, year 7, make up the current team. Daniel Helsdingen is the senior in the club. Other members are year 7 students Seth Ward, Cameron Davies and Jesse James Kerrigan and year 8 student Josh Childs.

“We are a young team which gives us time to develop to an even higher standard,” Mrs Ferris said.

Their recent trip to Farrer playing as individuals saw 76 students paired off in the secondary competition.

Inverell’s young team fared well with Taine placing second, Warwick in ninth, Ben placed 17th and young Axel came 21st, and Josh 27th.

High on the list is another trip to Newcastle.

“Last year they also won the local heat and went to Newcastle to play in the semi final and they came 12 out of 13 teams. This event spurred them on to want to improve their game and I am very proud of the effort they have made,” Mrs Ferris said.
