Tommy Bugg to notch up 50 in GWS Giants opener against St Kilda

Written by admin on 05/07/2018 Categories: 南京夜网

Defender Tommy Bugg will become the 10th player to celebrate 50 appearances for GWS – and mark his 22nd birthday – when the Giants start their season against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Bugg was named in a final 22 coach Leon Cameron described as “really really hard” to pick after a swathe of players made the most of the extended pre-season and competed strongly for starting spots.

High profile recruits Ryan Griffen and Joel Patfull will debut for the club, with Patfull likely to spend most of his time in a crucial contest with Saints captain Nick Riewoldt.

Tom Scully has been named despite an abbreviated pre-season challenge campaign after he injured an ankle in training in February.

Re-signed duo Jeremy Cameron and Devon Smith will start down the ground, while Phil Davis will form part of the Giants’ most experienced defence yet, alongside Heath Shaw and Patfull. Exciting forward Cam McCarthy will start from the interchange.

Bugg – who signed with the Giants as an 17-year-old access selection in 2010 – has earned the coach’s respect as a player who “just gets everything out of himself”.

“Whether it be wing, whether it be back, whether it be playing a negating role, he’s one of those players that just loves to play hard and loves to play the full 120 minutes. He’s really competitive,” Cameron told Giants TV.

“It’s fantastic to see him reach that milestone and hopefully we can celebrate with a win on Sunday.”

Bugg was the sixth player named on the Giants’ list when the club was established. He said it had been “a pretty special journey”.

“To say I’ve been here from the start with a few other boys, to share those kind of memories and this journey so I’ve really appreciated the time that I’ve had so far,” he said.

Isobella Morton, Emily Smith and Verenaisi Ratugole from Moruya High School. FAR South Coast high school students are calling on motivated adult mentors to join them in the Youth Frontiers Mentoring Program.
Nanjing Night Net

The new program aims to encourage students in years 8 and 9 to participate in their community by creating a civic project of their design and choice.

Youth Frontiers also aims to strengthen teamwork, communication, leadership and decision making skills in young people.

The results of the student’s civic projects will be displayed at a celebratory event in October.

Project officer Amy Kovacs said 18 students from schools across the Far South Coast had already signed up to the program.

“The response has been beyond our expectation,” she said.

“These students are willing to make a real difference in their local community, while picking up valuable life skills and knowledge that can link them with further education and employment outcomes.”

Ms Kovacs said they were looking to recruit, train and support 18 adults who are willing to volunteer to support a student on their project.

“Six volunteerswho are interested, or involved in, youth mental health, sporting engagement, empowerment of young women, community harmony and/or the Centenary of ANZACare needed in Moruya,” she said.

“We also need fourvolunteers in Batemans Bay who are interested in sporting engagement and youth mental health.”

Adult mentors will be required to commit to weekly support and guidance of a student, with some of the mentoring time occurring at the student’s school.

“The overall voluntary commitment will be at least 30 hours over a six month period,” Ms Kovacs said.

“Interested adults aged over 18 years will need to complete a 100 point ID and working with children check, supply references, attend an interview and a one day mentor training course in May prior to being admitted to the program.”

To find out more about how to become a mentor, contact Amy Kovacs or Steve Picton at South Coast Workplace Learning on 4474 5134 or visit 梧桐夜网scwl.org419论坛.

Applications close April 17, 2015.

Fears WA paedophile will reoffend in New Zealand

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

A convicted paedophile has been deported from WA to New Zealand.The Department of Immigration has confirmed a convicted paedophile has been deported from Western Australia to New Zealand sparking fears he will be free to attack more children.
Nanjing Night Net

After 18 months in jail the 67-year-old man was released from Casuarina Prison last week into the custody of immigration officials. He was due to be deported to New Zealand on Friday night.

On Saturday morning, WAtoday received a statement from the Department of Immigration saying the Department “could confirm that this person has been removed from Australia to New Zealand”.

His family are concerned that the WA parole conditions, which would apply to the man if he had been allowed to stay here, will effectively become redundant now that he is living abroad.

Speaking to 6PR Radio’s mornings host Gary Adshead on Thursday, the man’s daughter, known as “Cindy” said she held grave concerns for children in New Zealand and feared her paedophile father would reoffend if not properly supervised by police.

The man, who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of his victim, was sentenced to three years in jail in August 2013 after a District Court judge found him guilty of three charges of indecently dealing with his 10-year-old granddaughter in 2012.

The three incidents spanned one day when the girl’s mother was ill and she was in her grandfather’s care.

In sentencing, District Court Judge Simon Stone told the offender: “Your conduct towards (your victim) could only be described as reprehensible.  It impacted upon her and destroyed your family.  In effect, you stole her innocence as a child.”

Judge Stone ordered the man be made a reportable sex offender, meaning his particulars are listed on the Australian National Child Offender Register.

Under the terms of his WA parole conditions the man was to have no contact with children and no computer access. He was to have reported regularly to police, undergone random alcohol and drug testing, be subjected to ANCOR monitoring and was banned from contacting his victim.

But Cindy told 6PR she called NZ Police on March 20 to check the parole conditions and they told her they had no idea that he was being deported.

“I will be forever grateful to the Australian Government for deporting him but we were assured that the strict parole conditions he would be on here in WA would definitely be the same ones placed on him in New Zealand,” she said.

Cindy said the family had suspected the sexual abuse of her niece since April 2010, but an investigation by the Department of Community Protection had stalled because the young girl did not disclose the offences to case workers.

“Up until then he had been a really great dad and we trusted him 100 per cent,” she said.

“I’m an adult survivor of child sexual abuse myself and just to hear that from him that this had been going on with my niece, his own granddaughter, for years and years and years…

“The judge said he found that he had been abusing her since she was six years old. As a family, we believe it was many, many years before that.

“I have no doubt whatsoever that he will reoffend.”

Cindy said her father had admitted to certain aspects of his offending to her and her mother, which they relayed to their GP who made a mandatory report to the Department of Community Protection in 2010.

But when Cindy’s then eight-year-old niece did not disclose the offending to DCP officers, the case stalled and was not followed up.

Believing her father was innocent, Cindy’s sister allowed him to move into their home with her children, when the abuse he was later convicted of occurred. The girls’ mother made a report to police in 2012 when her daughter confided in her that the abuse had been occurring.

During sentencing, defence lawyer Simon Freitag told the court the matter of monitoring of his client upon his return to New Zealand was a matter for ANCOR authorities to arrange.

“Ultimately when he is released into the community, as he must be at some point, he will endeavour to return to New Zealand where he has some support and I think your Honour is aware of that through the psychological report,” Mr Freitag told the WA District Court on August 1, 2013.

“And that may also allay some of your Honour’s concerns about contact with his daughters and with the grandchildren because he intends to be elsewhere for the remainder of his life.

“I am not aware of what the New Zealand legislation is, your Honour, that will be a matter, I think, for ANCOR to arrange.  I assume, without knowing, that there would be an equivalent body of some type in New Zealand.” Follow WAtoday on Twitter

Some vendors still took home the chocolates on a low-key Easter auction weekend

But the Easter Bunny came early for the very small number of metropolitan vendors – just nine – who listed on Saturday.

On the back of a record-busting autumn Saturday last week, only five properties were sold under the hammer in metro Melbourne, according to results reported to the Domain Group.

The dip in numbers was extreme – last weekend almost 1400 properties were auctioned in a hot early year of the market.

But at least one vendor’s gamble, listing on a low-key weekend that was not flush with choices for buyers, paid off handsomely.

At 142 Junction Road in Nunawading, a humble four-bedroom home drew a crowd of 200 onlookers and eight bidders, whose battle pushed the price to $220,000 over reserve.

A developer paid $920,000 for the brick property, which was built in about 1980.

Harcourts agent Archie Mantsos said its development potential was a major drawcard.

In Mill Park, two bidders duelled for a pretty four-bedroom brick house at 7 Nervern Court, with a backyard pool and outdoor wood pizza oven, in a quiet cul-de-sac.

The winning bidder rewarded Ray White auctioneer Andrew Mizzi for clocking on, when most of other agents were at the pub or poolside, by paying $560,000.

Some regional agents took advantage of sunchasers flocking to the coast over the four-day break.

At Golden Beach in Gippsland in eastern Victoria, agent and auctioneer Laurie Keady has no trouble offloading a no-frills Cape Cod style home with enviable foreshore access.

“It’s a wonderful day – who wouldn’t want to buy down by the beach?” Ms Keady said.

“We are a tiny village but there was a good roll-up [for the auction].”

An onlooker said the four bedroom home at 74 Shoreline Drive was knocked down for $210,000.

Marty Maher, from Great Ocean Properties, was another coastal agent whose holiday was also on hold.

He auctioned a modern tri-level home overlooking the river at Aireys Inlet.

However, no buyer would take the chocolates: it was passed in on a vendor bid of $950,000 – but post-auction negotiations with a prospective buyer were soon underway.

Mr Maher said there were strong attendances at open for inspections along the west coast, buoyed by the influx of holidaymakers from the city.

“We are at absolute peak down here so we have been very busy,” Mr Maher said.

“Easter here is the reverse of Melbourne – everyone is down here.”

Proceedings will pick up again next weekend, with 546 Melbourne auctions scheduled.

Video spotlight on Heloise

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

Former Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise’s move to Melbourne has resulted in some big opportunities.
Nanjing Night Net

Former Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise’s move to Melbourne has resulted in some big opportunities.

IT has been almost two years since Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise left the state for Melbourne, and already it is bringing in big opportunities.

Heloise has just released her first ever video clip to go with her award-winning single This is Home.

The clip was produced by well-respected filmmaker Wilk, who has worked with the likes of Sarah Blasko, and was made possible after Heloise won the Bank Of Melbourne’s second annual Melbourne Music Bank last October with the song.

The win also saw the 21-year-old record for two days at Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios and receive PR and marketing advice and 500 CDs of her recording. Her song This is Home will be used in a Bank of Melbourne advertising campaign later this year.

Heloise said she had been bombarded with media requests since the clip was released earlier this week.

‘‘I had four Q and A features sent to me and they said ‘can you have these back by tomorrow?’’ Heloise said on Thursday.

‘‘I’ve been bombarded, but it’s really good. I’m loving it.’’

Although Heloise left the state in May 2013, she still returns a lot to spend time with her mum, Steph Sowerby, and perform with her band, also called Heloise.

‘‘It’s gone quickly,’’ she said.

‘‘(This summer) we played Falls, played Festivale, played Party in the Paddock, we did a couple of weddings here and there and it’s mostly been preparing for this (film) clip.’’

The song to the clip, which won the Music Bank award, had to be about why the musician loved Melbourne and what inspired them as an artist.

‘‘Having freshly moved from Tassie, I wrote about my experience moving here, all the places I’ve found, people I’ve come across … hidden gems across the city,’’ Heloise said.

The idea for the song’s film clip was Wilk’s.

‘‘I think it really suited the song,’’ she said.

The clip was filmed on a railway just out of Melbourne with the production crew hiring out five carriages for two and a half hours.

People on the train are extras, with Heloise liking the fact that her band members got to play a part.

Band members include fellow former Launceston musicians Nic Symons, Jared Campbell, Lee Mallinson and Heidi Maguire.

The This Is Home single and video will officially be launched on April 30 at the Workers Club in Brunswick, Victoria.

‘‘I’ve got a lot of family and friends coming over, so I’ll be pulling out the mattresses,’’ Heloise laughed.

After the launch, it will be back to writing, performing and recording, with Heloise and her band hoping to release a second EP by the end of the year.

‘‘Ultimately the dream is to be able to make a career out of this,’’ Heloise said.

‘‘I’d love to be able to be successful and do what I love for the rest of my life.’’

Laneway set for a cool change

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

Nanjing Night Net

THERE is a laneway in Devonport that is getting trendier by the year – and it’s about to get even cooler.

Rooke Lane is once again playing host to Reclaim the Lane, a celebration of youth arts and music, on Friday.

The event will feature Hobart street artist Laura McMahon, an open-mic event, free pizza, a photobooth, roving performances by Slipstream Circus and more.

It will also launch National Youth Week for Tasmania.

Devonport Regional Gallery education and public programs officer Dianne Sheehan said Reclaim the Lane was about celebrating the young people in the community, as well as the North-West’s arts and culture.

It is held in the lane as that has recently become a vibrant hub.

The lane, between Steele and Stewart streets, has become home to a new artist workspace, public art, a yoga studio, coffee shops and the iconic Devonport Regional Gallery in the past few years.

Ms Sheehan said that during Friday’s event sketchbooks created by North-West Coast youth would be displayed in the gallery.

More than 400 sketchbooks had been sent out to youth in the region.

‘‘Even if we receive only half of those back, it’s going to be a great exhibition,’’ Ms Sheehan said.

Those who want to take part in the Soap-box open-mic event can just ‘‘rock up’’ on the day.

Participants will have up to 10 minutes on the stage and can do anything from performing music to poetry and everything in between.

Another stage will be set up as a dedicated space for young musicians from schools across the region to perform.

Service providers will also have exhibits in the laneway, including TasTAFE, which has been working on a SelfiEsteam project with North-West youth.

National Youth Week runs from Friday, April 10, to April 19 and is about celebrating young people.

This year’s theme is ‘‘It Starts with Us.’’

More than 20 events have been planned for Tasmania.

Hobart street artist Laura McMahon will be the guest artist.

Girl dies, brother fighting for life after Wyee crash

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

AN eight-year-old girl has died and her nine-year-old brother is fighting for his life after a car crash at Wyee.
Nanjing Night Net

The girl, who died on Sunday,was one of seven injured in a collision involving a Holden Astra and a Toyota Hilux on Wyee Road, at Doyalson, about 5.15pm on Saturday.

Two women and three children travelling in a car and two women travelling in the ute were trapped in the wreckage before being released by emergency services.

A12-year-old boy is now in a stable condition but the nine-year-old boyremains critical.

All four women sustained fractures in the crash but are reported to be in a stable condition.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, said Easter Sunday was when many Australians get together with families.

“But after the tragic crash yesterday, we have a family that has been torn apart,” he said.

“An eight-year-old girl died this morning and her nine-year-old brother is fighting for his life as a result of that collision yesterday.

“Please, before you get into your car today, talk to each other, make the commitment to whoever is in your car or on your bike, that they are your responsibility.

“Don’t become distracted, don’t drive faster than you should, and for everyone’s sake – don’t become complacent.

“And if you are going to return home from the Easter long weekend today or tomorrow, be prepared for the delays and don’t become impatient.”

INITIAL REPORT: THREE children are critical and four adults injured after an Easter crash at Wyee.

Emergency services were called to Wyee Road about 5.15pm on Saturday after a Holden Astra and a Toyota Hilux ute collided.

Two boys, nineand 12, and a five-year-old girl had suffered critical injuries in the incident, with the two youngest children taken to Wyong Hospital.

The 12-year-old boy was taken to the John Hunter Hospital, with the younger children initially taken to Wyong hospital.

It is understood they will be taken to another hospital to receive specialist treatment, while emergency services were also expected to fly two of the adults to hospital on Saturday night.

Police said the three children’s conditions were unknown at 7.30pm.

“Local diversions are in place around the crash site and motorists are advised to use caution when approaching the area,” NSW Police said in a statement.

“Wyee Road will be closed to all traffic for a number of hours to allow inquiries to be carried out at the scene.”

Traffic and Highway Patrol Command’s Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said this crash would leave many families changed forever.

“It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, driver or passenger – the road is there to share,” he said.

“When you get behind the wheel you accept the risks that go with it and that includes the real possibility you will change your family’s life or that of another family forever.”

Assistant Commissioner Hartley urged all drivers to slow down and leave more room than usual between the vehicle ahead.

Jack Hale advances to Stawell Gift semi-finals

Written by admin on 22/07/2019 Categories: 南京夜网

MADE IT: Despite finishing second in a slow heat, Tasmanian teenager Jack Hale advanced to the semi-finals at the Stawell Gift. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRITEENAGE sprint ace Jack Hale is through to the semi-finals at the Stawell Gift despite failing to win his heat.
Nanjing Night Net

There were 22 heats featuring more than 100 athletes at Stawell’s Central Park race track on Saturday, but Hale was clearly the one everybody wanted to see.

A hush came over the crowd when the 16-year-old Tasmanian walked to the starting blocks.

Set a tough handicap of just 2.25 metres, Hale was the backmarker in his race.

He got a good start and put in a gutsy effort, but was unable to chase down Thornbury’s Bikramjeet Singh.

His time of 12.477 seconds was enough to see him through to the semi-finals as one of the fastest losers.

Hale rose to prominence last year when he ran the fastest 100-metre time by an Australian male.

The schoolboy said he enjoyed the atmosphere of running at Stawell, but would need to improve his second 60 metres of the 120-metre race in the semi-finals.

Only one Wimmera sprinter represented the region in the men’s gift.

Goroke native Duncan Cameron raced in heat three, but did not make it to the final after finishing fifth off a tough handicap of 7.5 metres.

An error with the electronic system in Cameron’s heat meant he was given a hand-timed 12.60 seconds.

Luke Houlihan, one of the pre-race favourites to take out the gift, turned in one of the most impressive performances of the day.

He ran a blistering 12.074 seconds to stamp himself as one to beat.

Tim Eschebach, another pre-race favourite, switched off well before hitting the line and looked to have plenty in reserve for the finals.

Ararat’s Marcus Cooper competed in the veterans’ 100-metre handicap, finishing second in his heat.

The semi-finals of the veterans’ handicap will be run on Sunday.

Sarah Blizzard through to semi-finals of Stawell Women’s Gift

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

MOVING ON: Ararat’s Sarah Blizzard, pictured with father Neil at last year’s Stawell Gift, was the fastest loser in the heats of the women’s gift on Saturday and advanced to the semi-finals. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERARARAT runner Sarah Blizzard’s bid to go one better than her runner-up finish at last year’s Stawell Women’s Gift is off to a good start.
Nanjing Night Net

Blizzard advanced to the semi-finals of the women’s gift despite not winning her heat.

She finished second to Sophia Power in heat 13, which was the fourth-fastest of the 16 women’s heats.

Blizzard, running off 9.5 metres, nearly pipped Power on the line after starting a metre and a half behind her.

Blizzard’stime of 13.544 seconds made her the fastest of the non heat winners, easily sending her through to the semi-finals.

Last year’s women’s gift winner Holly Dobbyn became the first high-profile casualty.

Dobbyn was in the same heat as Blizzard and Power but ran fourth as the backmarker off a 6.5-metre handicap, eliminating her before the semi-finals.

The news was also not good for the Wimmera’s two other competitors in the women’s gift.

Debutant Anna Bush ran fifth in her heat after being given a tough 9.25-metre handicap and did not advance.

Her time was 14.002 seconds.

Crowlands’ Tiffany Boatman also did not make it out of the heats, finishing seventh after running 14.893 seconds.

Women’s drawcard Melissa Breen cruised to victory in the first heat of the day.

Breen looked untroubled as she won in a time of 13.974 seconds, easing off before the finish line.

Women’s gift favourite Grace O’Dwyer was also impressive in her 13.560-second heat win.

Another of the women’s big names, Ella Nelson, had to endure a wait to see if she would run in the semi-final after finishing fourt inher heat.

Her time of 13.675 seconds was good enough to send her through as one of the fastest losers.

Easter Show, Royal Randwick racing, open air cinemas – victims of Easter long weekend weather

Relentless rain caused major disruption to events across Sydney and the state over the long Easter weekend wiping out racing, affecting crowds at the Easter Show and numerous other holiday festivities. Forecasters said 25 mm of rain had fallen by early Saturday afternoon placing it well ahead of some of the worst averages for the whole of Easter.

The first day of The Championships at Royal Randwick was postponed until Monday, costing the industry more than $1 million. It was the first postponement of a Doncaster Mile in its 150-year history. But forecasters say the weather may not be much better then with another front possibly bringing heavy rain and thunderstorms on its way.

But perhaps no one person has been more affected than Australian jockey Corey Brown who will make four flights between Sydney and Singapore in as many nights to contest two races.

After his fruitless arrival in Sydney on Saturday, Brown was due to board a flight on Saturday night to ride at Kanji on Sunday. He will then dash back to Sydney in time for the postponed Championships , but not before an 11th hour sauna session to shed the last bit of weight.

The going on the course was described as “heavy” but there were further concerns about visibility and the safety of racing in misty rain and with mud thrown up by the horses.

Brett de Vine, spokesman for the Australian Turf Club said the postponement presented some problems for catering. Hospitality at ‘Little Sydney’ was to take centre stage with leading venues, China Doll, Chiswick, Icebergs and Gazebo providing fine dining for racegoers.

“There is a big difference between it being called off until Monday and being abandoned,” he said. “That should help in terms of it not being a total write-off. In terms of betting nobody is going to lose any money at all. They will either get a refund or their bets will stand.”

Models Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith found their services were no longer required and Myer, sponsors of fashion stakes at the meeting said it had chosen not to participate in the rescheduled race day on Monday but would be back on track for next Saturday’s Championships Day 2.

At the Easter Show, chief operating officer Michael Collins said some 80 per cent of attractions now take place under cover. The showjumping was cancelled for safety reasons but the rodeo was expected to take place he said.

“Of course it is going to cost money as Mum and Dad say: ‘Let’s just stay at home’. But in the wet weather people go into the pavilions. The number one attraction at the Easter Show is the animals and judging  and that will be even more popular along with showbags and shopping.

“People have got their hats on and their Driza-Bones and their ponchos. The Driza-Bone stand will be doing well as well as those selling umbrellas.”

Open air cinema wasn’t a good business to be in.

“Please be advised that tonight’s session (Fifty Shades of Grey on Saturday) has been cancelled due to bad weather” was posted on the website of the Sydney Open-Air Cinema at Castle Hill which launched its program last week. It’s perhaps not surprising it decided to pull the plug. It’s hard to feel amorous when the seat of your denims are damp and with rain dripping down your décolletage.

Organisers said outdoor screenings can go on with intermittent rain but constant precipitation poses a safety risk and screenings are cancelled and patrons asked to re-book another session.

“Not going ahead is a saving in the movie rights but there is the loss of potential beverage and food sales,” said spokeswoman Rachel Cameron.

The main beneficiary of the rain is expected to be conventional cinemas.

Stephen Howard, spokesman for Event Cinemas, said it was a combination of weather and quality of films that drove audiences.

“Furious 7 launched on Thursday and it is the second week of Cinderella and we are already getting some really good feedback,” he said.

“I am confident it will have been a bumper weekend for Event cinemas – bad weather and great productions equals good attendance.”
