Council has let pool leak for 14 years: source

13/06/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

Council was told in 1996 it would cost around $400,000 to stop water loss at Mittagong Pool but opted to do nothing about it.

A report of that year stated the pool loses 20,000 litres a day and it warned of “downstream consequences”.

It said the pool was losing much more than that amount in the early ‘90s but action was taken to control the amount.

It’s been confirmed, via another report to Council tonight, that the pool is losing 24,000 litres a day – or one percent of its volume – because of leaks.

It’s understood governmental environment agencies have not conducted regular water sampling of Nattai Creek – on which the pool is built – but were involved in creek monitoring when vandals emptied the pool four years ago.

Mittagong Pool manager Glenn Wright said it’s not unusual for public pools to leak, it just so happens that this particular pool is located on a creek.

“Before 1960, it was a waterhole,” Mr Wright said.

He stressed the pool “has not had its day” yet, but its viability depends upon how much money is spent in fixing the problem.

He said the pool has been leaking since he came to Mittagong in 1986.

Council’s general manager David McGowan conceded the Shire’s four pools are all getting old.

Acknowledging the Shire’s pool management conundrum he said Council must continue to work towards a pool management strategy involving a covered facility/leisure centre.

“The problem at Mittagong has always been a topic in debate everytime we meet about our pools,” he said.

When asked about whether Council was intending to fix the leaks, or much would be involved, Mr McGowan couldn’t be specific.

He said there’s no immediate solution.

Councillor Larry Whipper, the most environmentally active of the Shire’s elected representatives, yesterday said he was also aware of the problem.

But he said regardless of what water testing in Nattai Creek might reveal, he said the issue points to the need for a “modern year round facility”.

“We were prepared to make the hard decisions (in closing Bowral this season) but the community hasn’t responded with us,” he said.

Illawarra Academy calls for future Paralympians

13/06/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

Now that the very successful Paralympics are over, the Illawarra Academy of Sport is looking for young potential Paralympians to nominate for the Academy,s Athletes with a Disability Squad.
Nanjing Night Net

Academy graduate Siobhan Paton won six gold medals at the Paralympics and last night was named Paralympian of the year. Siobhan was a member of the inaugural Illawarra Academy of Sport Athletes with a disability squad and remained an Academy athlete until she moved to Canberra. According to Academy Executive Director, Cheryl Battaerd, Siobhan is living proof that if you have the corage and commitment to achieve then with support, the hurdles can be overcome and you can reach your dream.

As the pool of talented differently able athletes increases in the region it is important that opportunities are provided for them to reach their full sporting potential. The two main goals of the Illawarra Academy of Soort program are to provide junior talented athletes with a disability the opportunity to access elite level services to achieve excellence in sport and assist in the holistic development of the athlete as afforded able-bodied athletes. The Academy program also provides role models for other junior athletes with a disability to continue their participation in sport and recognise that they too can aim to achieve excellence in sport. Reports Battaerd.

To be eligible for a scholarship, an athlete must be a resident of the Illawarra region, be affiliated with a sporting association during the Academy scholarship year and be identified or competing at state level in sport. The general age requirements for scholarship holders is between 14-18 years but allowances may be made for athletes up to 20 years in certain circumstances.

Nominations for scholarships must be received before 8th December 2000.

For nomination forms please phone the Academy on 0242835611.

Just a Minute

13/06/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

THE automatic door opens and closes, people enter in ones or twos, perhaps carrying a crying child. They sit down on some of the available chairs. They wait, perhaps chat, read a magazine from the rack,
Nanjing Night Net

The child wants a drink from the water cooler in the corner. In another corner some children may be noisily playing in a play pen.

Where are we?

There is an office, computers tap, the phone rings, the staff attend to the continual people flow.

Where did you say we were?

Of course, a doctor’s surgery.

One sits on, appointment time is long past, look at one’s watch, sigh, read some more of the magazine, think about what to have for tea tonight. Perhaps feel unwell after all, why else would one be there?

Suddenly a lady in the office calls your name and waves your card. One hurries forward, the sound of one’s name flooding the waiting room.

Up until then there was nothing to do but wait. No point in giving in to impatience or challenging the system. There is only one way to get in to see the medico – listen for the call of your name.

It is rather like the instance of Jesus standing and calling to all who would listen, “If any one is thirsty, let him come to me and drink”. John chapter 7 verse 37. Do we think it is foolish to listen for the voice of God in our life when we are aware that He is speaking to us? He calls to us for many reasons, for repentance, for salvation, for our Christian growth…for special service, for making a host of decisions about our choices in life.

The next time we sit and wait for our name to be called to go in to see our doctor, think of the special call of our name by God.

Listen and consider.

Local riders claim gold

Our two most successful representatives from the Highlands at the Asia Pacific Masters Games didn’t know of each other’s presence until they were called up to winner’s dais on presentation night.
Nanjing Night Net

Moss Vale resident and Burradoo Polocrosse representative Graeme Spackman was awarded the ‘best horse and rider combination’ in his age group at the Games, while judo expert Doug Churchill was presented with the player of the tournament in his discipline immediately after.

Graeme Spackman teamed with Southern Highland and South West Slopes polocrosse players to contest the over 50s division.

In a high calibre event the local team took the gold medal, with excellent performances from Neville Gilpin, Jim Davidge, Kevin Bradford, Maurice Hunter, Bob Fitzgerald and of course Graeme Spackman.

The team defeated strong teams from Queensland, Guyra and the mid North Coast, indicating a well-fought win for the locals.

To add to the Highlands success, Neville Gilpin took out the award for ‘best legs’, as his team-mates will confirm.

The Asia Pacific Games is an biennial event which draws competitors from throughout the Southern Hemisphere.

1st Grade cricket a washout

13/06/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

The keep off the wicket sign at Bradman Oval said it all on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

Heavy rain and thunderstorms late last week forced all Highlands district first grade cricket matches to be cancelled over the weekend.

The scheduled two-day matches will now be one-day matches this Saturday.

The draw remains the same, with the Bowral Blues looking to topple the experienced Moss Vale side at Bradman, Bowral keen to keep its unblemished record when it plays Exeter at Welby, while Wingello will aim to take the competition points when it matches up against Mittagong at Chater Oval.

Presently Moss Vale and Bowral lead the competition as both sides are undefeated, while the Bowral Blues are nestled in second spot closed followed by Mittagong, Wingello and Exeter.

Nathan Hindmarsh in top form

13/06/2018 | 南京夜网 | Permalink

Robertson’s Nathan Hindmarsh has continued his scintillating form as an Australian Kangaroo, after bagging two tries in the team’s round match against Russia.
Nanjing Night Net

It has been a dream start for the 21 year old from the Parramatta Club, who only boasts three caps as a Kangaroo.

Hindmarsh seems to have settled any nerves, as he told the News on Friday after his first game against Fiji.

“I was very nervous before the game, the opportunity to represent Australia has come to me a little earlier in my career than expected,” he said.

“But I settled down pretty early in the game and enjoyed the experience.”

In fact Hindmarsh’s Australian representative honours are his first, revealing his hasty rise to the top of the competition.

The tries add to his try on debut against Fiji on Friday morning and cement his role in the green and gold.

Australia scored a record 110-4 win in the World Cup match against Russia in Hull, a score which featured 19 tries.

It was also a memorable game for Ryan Girdler who shattered the Australian rugby league point scoring record by amassing 46 points with three tries and 17 goals.

Australia remains undefeated in the World Cup with three wins and only 14 points scored against them so far.

Meanwhile New Zealand is nestled comfortably at the top of the Group 2 ladder, the only team likely to threaten the Australians in the World Cup.
