Nashos long to list locals

The call has gone out for locals who enlisted for National Service between 1950 and 1959 in and around Griffith to add their names to a list. Thecall has gone out for locals who enlisted for National Service between 1950 and 1959 in and around Griffith to add their names to a list.

Griffith National Service branch member Jim McGann said the project, started by the late Vic Budd, hoped to create a historical record to be kept at the Griffith War Memorial Museum.

The current list of names, which contains about 250, is at the Griffith City Library and locals are being invited to check its accuracy and add their names to it.

“This is something we want to do inVic’s memory. Registration for National Service started mid-November 1950 until the end of December 1959,” Mr McGann said.

“I was one of the ones who went to afortnightly camp in about 1953 because the Korean war was about to finish.

“In that period of time, up to 1959, we were put on the short list to go to conflict in Malaya.

“It subsided and they didn’t need us.”

Mr McGann said he wanted to complete the list, but had found it difficult due to privacy laws.

“We are putting together this list and don’t want to miss anyone,” he said.

“Our intention is to give the list to the museum.

“This is about making sure all of our history is recorded.

“When I went to find out who was on the register in Griffith I was refused because of the privacy laws.

“It means everyone has to come to us.”

The list can be found at the front counter of the library and anyone with any relevant details is urged to contribute.

‘Pinup’ contest brings back happy days

Self-growth: Nathan Robinson: “This is the first year the competition has had a brother and sister duo,” he said. Picture: Gary Warrick
Nanjing Night Net

SHALVEY resident Nathan Robinson said his self-esteem and confidence was at the lowest it had ever been.

He was going through a divorce; he had lost his home; and he had recently moved back home to Canberra from Western Australia.

Then he entered the Mr Pinup category in the Miss Pinup Australia competition.

The competition focuses on the return of old-fashioned values and vintage fashion — and life started to look promising again for the 28-year-old.

“I’m on top of the world,” he said.

“I met my new girlfriend Miss Wurple Violet through the competition, and then I relocated to Shalvey to be with her and her three kids. It’s been a whirlwind of positives.”

Robinson, who goes by the pin-up name Harley Quinn, won the Mr Pinup NSW category at the state finals on June 29 at Blacktown Workers Club.

The contestant, who draws inspiration from the TV show Happy Days, said the competition was more than a beauty pageant — it was a journey of self-growth.

“We haven’t seen it as a competition and I have made some really good friends,” he said.

“I have been growing personally throughout the whole experience.

“Now wearing vintage — I wear a lot more colour and I have even come out of my shell.”

Robinson said he and his fellow male competitor, Gentleman Jack De Wilde, have become “real good” friends.

“It’s not about beating him,” he said.

“It’s about supporting each other which we have done by talking, bouncing ideas of each other and overall encouraging each other.”

Robinson will see his sister, Miss Annie Key, who is also competing in the national competition on August 2, at Hornsby RSL.

American exchange student heads home after spending a year in the Eurobodalla

HOME TIME: American exchange student Corey Powers leaves on Tuesday July 8 after spending a year in the Eurobodalla LEARNING to surf and becoming an honourary prefect at Moruya High School were just two of the things American exchange student Corey Powers achieved during his year on the South Coast.
Nanjing Night Net

Seventeen-year-old Corey from Connecticut came to Moruya on a Rotary International exchange to “see what Australia was like”.

After spending a year in the Eurobodalla, Cory travelled 26 hours home on Tuesday June 8.

Duringhis stay, Corey became a part of the Broulee Runners, learned to surf, helped start up Rotary Interact at Moruya High School and made it to the regional level of school cross-country.

“I loved being a part of Broulee runners,” Corey said.

“At home I am part of my schools’ cross-country track and athletics team so it allowed me to keep training.”

During his time at Moruya High School, Corey made lots of friends and built a strong bond with fellow class mate and “host-brother” Will Scobie.

“Saying goodbye to Will was hard, there were a few tears,” Corey admitted.

“I feel like I’m a part of the community.

“I will definitely be back soon.”

Corey said the highlight of his year in Australia was travelling to Uluru with the other exchange students from the South Coast and Sydney as part of a Rotary excursion.

“Walking around Uluru on sunrise was amazing,” he said.

“It was beautiful.”

Although he achieved much and enjoyed his time in Australia, it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

Corey said the hardest part about his exchange was not being at Thanksgiving in November when his grandfather was sick.

“I haven’t really been home sick but not being there for my grandfather was hard,” he said.

The Voice Kids loses moral ground over Romy rejection

Nanjing Night Net

COMMENT

TV dad and noted philosopher Homer Simpson once described television as a “teacher, mother and secret lover”.

In truth, it is none of those. It is a harsh mistress whose spotlight can burn and for proof we need not look further than 12-year-old Romy.

The barely teen-aged contestant on The Voice Kids was left weeping on national television after all four coaches on the show – Delta Goodrem, Melanie Brown and brothers Joel and Benji Madden – failed to turn their chairs and select her during her audition.

All four raced to console the sobbing girl, and their concern for her welfare is clearly visible in the segment.

In its aftermath there will be hand-wringing, and questions about responsibility, duty of care and whether it was appropriate to include the segment in the broadcast of the program.

But the inescapable truth is this: we knew this moment was coming. It isn’t the first time. It won’t be the last.

Reality television is a brutal genre, concerned with exploiting the emotions of its subjects, and its audience, in the pursuit of ratings and revenue. Adding children to that recipe is always risky.

That is not to say the producers of The Voice Kids embarked on this particular enterprise hoping to damage their young charges. And on numbers alone more kids than not will enjoy the process.

But one clear question remains: who decided to include the segment in the broadcast, and why?

With no one willing to coach her, Romy’s performance was effectively rejected from competition. Which means its only value to the broadcast narrative of The Voice Kids was either to capitalise on the emotion of the moment, or to illustrate the compassion of the judges.

Either way, The Voice Kids seems to be guilty of the very thing which once set it apart from other talent shows that exploited, humiliated and belittled their subjects.

Lesser shows played those games, we were assured, while The Voice was something better, with a focus on music artistry instead of cheap TV moments.

Let’s be frank: in the handbook of TV “moments”, a sobbing child, with four celebrities racing to embrace her, does not sit at the expensive end of the spectrum.

Children and show-business are not new bedfellows. Ever since Baby Peggy, born in 1918, a child star at six and penniless by the age of 11, the entertainment industry has had a poor record of handling small charges.

With the advent of reality television, those risks have increased exponentially.

In the US, programs such as Dance Moms, Toddlers & Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Jon and Kate Plus 8 exploit their young charges for entertainment.

And when they prove too hot to handle, programs like Brat Camp, Super Nanny and Nanny 911 are there to readjust them.

In 2007, the British version of The X Factor lowered the minimum contestant age from 16 to 14 and drew widespread criticism. They reversed that decision several years later. The Got Talent format allows children to compete with parental consent.

After a nine-year-old contestant on Britain’s Got Talent, Malakai Paul, was reduced to tears, veteran British TV broadcaster Sir Bruce Forsyth weighed into the debate saying that children had no place on reality TV. “I don’t think they should get young children and put them through such an emotional thing,” he said.

He’s right.

The brittle sensibilities of young children require very specific handling. The problem is that television too often demonstrates it is barely able to do better than one-size-fits-all.

Andrew Forrest-backed Poseidon buys Norilsk nickel project

Andrew Forrest-backed junior explorer Poseidon Nickel has bought from the world’s largest nickel and palladium producer.Andrew Forrest-backed junior explorer Poseidon Nickel has bought the Black Swan nickel project from Russian mining giant Norilsk for an undisclosed sum.
Nanjing Night Net

Norilsk, the world’s largest nickel and palladium producer, flagged in September that it would sell its Australian assets.

Poseidon has been looking to restart its Mt Windarra nickel mine in the West Australian goldfields in the face of poor nickel prices and tight debt markets.

It said the acquisition of the Black Swan nickel sulphide plant would allow it to process ores from Windarra.

“Poseidon will have the option to either recommission the plant in its current location to take ore shipped from Windarra, or the plant can be removed and relocated at Windarra creating a considerable cost saving,” Poseidon said in a statement to the ASX on Monday.

Poseidon added it would not need to raise additional money for the deal, saying it can fund the transaction from its current resources. Citigroup is understood to be handling the sales process for Norilsk.

Last year, Mr Forrest, chairman of Fortescue Metals Group, resigned as chairman of Poseidon because of his “overwhelming philanthropic duties”. He was elected to the Poseidon board as chairman in July 2007 at the time of a boom in nickel prices.

The billionaire also declined to participate in another equity raising by the nickel minnow in May. Mr Forrest started 2014 with 33 per cent of Poseidon shares, but according to Bloomberg he now holds just over 23 per cent of the company.

Heritage trails step into history of Brisbane suburbs

Brisbane’s Albion Hotel, circa 1866. Photo: State Library of QueenslandThree new heritage walking trails through Albion, Indooroopilly and Ascot have been released by Brisbane City Council. They feature in a digital library that also includes trails through the City Centre, Fortitude Valley, Rosalie, South Brisbane, Milton, Bulimba and along the Brisbane River. Guides for the walks and an outline on the history of some of the buildings in the areas can be downloaded from council’s website. If you take an iPad, you can follow the heritage walk as you walk through the suburb. The Albion Heritage Trail – dubbed “Amble About Albion” – takes walkers through one of Brisbane’s most interesting areas. It begins at the Albion Hotel on Sandgate Road, passes the former site of the Albion Flour Mill, up Sandgate Road to the historic residence Whytecliffe, then down the hill to Crosby Park. The Albion Hotel is one of Brisbane’s oldest pubs, dating back to the 1860s. Parts of the Albion Flour Mill were destroyed by fire last year and the building has been demolished, but it still gives the atmosphere of Brisbane’s oldest working flour mill. From Crosby Park the walk passes through some of Albion’s oldest suburban streets, then down Sandgate Road to the historic commercial centre of Albion. The walk through Indooroopilly – Eye on Indooroopilly – takes in some Brisbane’s oldest homes. City visitors can take the train from Central or Roma Street stations along the Ipswich line to Indooroopilly station to do the heritage walk. The Indooroopilly Trail begins at the Indooroopilly War Memorial in Keating Park, goes under the rail bridge to the spectacular Church of the Holy Family. It then travels down the hill to some of Indooroopilly’s grandest houses, the important World War II site at Witton Barracks on the river, up historic Station Road to end at the Shopping Centre. “Eye on Indooroopilly includes the early settlement of the suburb when Brisbane’s well-to-do built stately homes on large estates,” Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said. “The extension of the rail-line and the construction of Albert Bridge, the impact of the 1893 flood on the fledgling suburb, Indooroopilly’s important war memorials and the transformation of the suburb’s centre with the coming of the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre in the 1970s are all part of the walk.” The Ascot Heritage Trail, travels up Racecourse Road, past the St Augustine’s Anglican Church, along Windemere Road. It then works its way through some of Brisbane’s best preserved historic sites and ends at the famous Eagle Farm Racecourse.
Nanjing Night Net

“This walk explores the establishment of the racecourse, the suburb’s important contribution to the war effort during World War II, entertainment at the Tivoli Gardens Theatre and some of Brisbane’s most beautiful and historic homes,” Cr Quirk said.

The Ascot and Hamilton Heritage Walk is available here. Cr Quirk gave everybody the chance to learn a little more about Brisbane’s history. “These new heritage trails highlight important historic sites, colourful stories and infamous events that have shaped our suburbs,” Cr Quirk said. The heritage trail information will also appear on promotional postcards available at local libraries. For further inquiries, phone 07 3403 8888.

Baden-Clay murder trial is not a ‘soap opera’, says defence

Nanjing Night Net

The trial of accused wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay is not a “soap opera” or a “whodunit play”, a court has heard.

Mr Baden-Clay’s defence barrister Michael Byrne, QC, began his closing address to the jury before a packed courtroom in Brisbane’s Supreme Court on Monday.

A former prestige Brisbane real estate agent, Mr Baden-Clay is accused of killing his wife Allison at their home in the leafy western Brisbane suburb of Brookfield on April 19, 2012 and dumping her body in nearby Kholo Creek at Anstead.Full coverage

Mr Byrne reminded the seven men and five women of the jury to ignore media coverage of the trial and consider only the facts presented in the courtroom.

“Ladies and gentlemen … this is a murder trial,” he said.

“That may sound odd to you because if you have been following what’s been happening outside this courtroom, you might be mistaken for thinking it’s been a great big media event.

“It’s not that. Nor is it a soap opera, in which various titillating elements are brought out for the amusement of the media, and it is not a whodunit play.

“Your task as the jurors is to assess the evidence, to do it coldly, by that I mean dispassionately and objectively.

“It is not to be your own detectives, do your own investigations or to be caught up in the hype that has been in the various forms of media over the last three weeks.”

Mr Byrne said the onus was on the prosecution to prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that Mr Baden-Clay killed his wife of 15 years.

“The prosecution case, as you heard opened some time ago, was that he somehow violently ended her life in the very home that they shared with their three young daughters,” Mr Byrne said.

“This man, Gerard Baden-Clay, who on the evidence you have heard has never displayed violence, whose acquaintances, friends, family and children have never seen to be violent or indeed to ever argue with his wife, the Crown say on that night in April, 2012, he violently murdered her.”

Mr Byrne said the jurors must assess each piece of evidence and decide if the only “rational inference” was that Mr Baden-Clay murdered his wife.

He said the jury could consider the alternate verdicts of murder or manslaughter, but noted they had to find Mr Baden-Clay intended to cause death or grievous bodily harm to find him guilty of the higher charge.

“Members of the jury, once you have carefully considered all of the evidence, it’s my submission to you that you will not be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that Gerard killed Allison.

“And once you do reach that point, then it is your duty to find him not guilty.

“It’s not a favour to him, it’s not any type of merciful verdict. In fact you may not feel terribly sorry for him. Some of his foibles, some of his bad qualities have been exposed in this trial.

“It’s not about feeling sorry for anyone, not him, not Allison, not the girls. It’s whether the evidence satisfies you of reasonable doubt of his guilt. And in my submissions it does not.”

Mr Baden-Clay forfeited his right to have his defence counsel effectively have the final say in the trial after choosing to adduce evidence and step into the witness box.

The queue to the Supreme Court complex on George Street extended 100 metres from the entrance to the building on Monday morning as curious onlookers and avid court watchers gathered to see the final days of the trial.

The trial is being broadcast into two other courtrooms, such is the intense public interest in the case.

The trial before Justice John Byrne continues.

Sex offender security bracelets ‘lose signal’

Police are searching for Andrew Darling, who cut through his monitoring device.Electronic bracelets used to monitor some of Victoria’s worst sex offenders at an Ararat facility intermittently lose signal, leading to confusion among the officers guarding the centre.
Nanjing Night Net

Police Association secretary Ron Iddles said some signals did not register on the monitoring system at the Corella Place facility.

‘‘For whatever reason, the signalling stops,’’ he said.

‘‘[The guards] think there’s an issue but the prisoner is there.’’

Mr Iddles spoke on Monday following the escape of convicted child rapist Andrew Darling, who has been on the run for more than 24 hours after cutting through his monitoring device early on Sunday morning.

Mr Iddles said the recent introduction of GPS had improved the bracelets but problems with signalling remained.

‘‘We’ve got to make sure the system is working 100 per cent and it’s not at the moment,’’ he said.

Victoria’s Corrections Commissioner Jan Shuard said bracelets relied on mobile phone coverage and prisoners were subject to other forms of surveillance, including staff supervision.

‘‘They work as we expect them to work,’’ she told radio station 3AW.

Darling, 42, triggered an alarm after removing his tracking device shortly after 2.30am on Sunday.

Community and Public Sector Union industrial officer Andrew Capp said the escape exposed flaws in the monitoring system.

He said union members were concerned they would be held accountable for deficiencies in the technology.

‘‘It’s incumbent on Corrections Victoria to look at … whether they need to invest in new technology,’’ Mr Capp said.

Corella Place houses some of Victoria’s worst sex offenders.

The 55-bed facility accommodates offenders who have finished their sentences but are deemed to be an unacceptable risk of reoffending.

There are no walls surrounding the facility, but the offenders living there are monitored with GPS ankle bracelets and cannot leave without permission.

’Miners still searching for first win

AIMING AHEAD: Nic Cranston looks for a way through in Saturday night’s match for the Bathurst Goldminers against the Wagga Wagga Heat. Photo: ZENIO LAPKA 070514zbball2THE Bathurst Goldminers looked competitive many times during both matches of the weekend’s double header at home, but the team still couldn’t find a way to their first win of the men’s State League season.
Nanjing Night Net

A late flurry of points almost got the Bathurst team a shock win over the Wagga Wagga Heat on Saturday night, but they fell short to finish 95-88 down. The team returned on Sunday, with less players on the bench, where they were humbled 82-51 by the Canberra Gunners.

The Goldminers got an early lead on the Gunners, but the visitors soon hit back to finish the first quarter up 21-13. The opening 10 minutes saw the Goldminers have more of the ball, but the Gunners were efficient with their time in offence.

At half-time the score was a low 33-17 following some inaccurate shooting from both teams.

Canberra committed more players to their full court press in the second half, but Goldminers continued to cope well with the tactic and had their best quarter of the game.

Unfortunately for the home side, the Gunners found space of their own with the ball, sinking a handful of threes to lead by 57-32 at the last break.

The fourth quarter had the highest tempo of any as both teams took more shots on impulse, resulting in a fairly even quarter up until the final whistle.

Goldminers player Matt Chapman wasn’t delivered a birthday present on the scoreboard, but he still saw plenty to be happy about from the Sunday game.

“Against today we were really short on numbers. We almost played with an entirely new team to the one that played last night. Everyone stepped up well so you’ve got to be happy,” he said.

“There was a lack of numbers, a lack of size but in saying that I don’t think the size difference bothers us that much. I think we match up really well with a lot of their bigs and a lot of our smaller guys stepped up.

“We’re just one or two bigger players off matching up with these teams consistently all the time.”

Chapman said the team produced some memorable basketball towards the end of Saturday night’s close loss, something he’d like to see more.

“We won that fourth quarter 25 to seven, which was a great effort. It’s a pity it was the reverse the quarter before, where it would have been about the same amount,” he said.

“It was the same old story for us. That third quarter always gets us, but to come back and only give seven points to Wagga was a really good effort by the boys and they should be proud.”

WAGGA WAGGA HEAT 95 defeated BATHURST GOLDMINERS 88 and CANBERRA GUNNERS 82 (Mitchell Brown 14, Evan Fowler 14, Nick Jackson 12) defeated BATHURST GOLDMINERS 51 (Lawrence Misfud 19, Matt Chapman 12, Hayden Tinkler 8, Tom Ozolins 8)
