    Orana Local Area Command Inspector Gemini Bakos said Coles supermarket management had received a telephone call from an unhappy customer.

    “There were many verbal threats made,” Inspector Bakos said.

    In response to the telephone call, Coles management and Dubbo Square Charter Hall management made the decision to evacuate the entire centre.

    Police were on the scene at 2:10pm, Inspector Bakos said.

    “Dubbo police assisted with the evacuation and conducted their own investigation in Coles,” she said.

    At 2:43pm, the area was deemed safe by Orana Local Area Command and was reopened.

    “This was decided by both Dubbo Square Charter Hall management and Coles management.”

    It was a show of support for Wagga woman Amanda Norman, who will fly to Russia later this year to undergo radical but “life changing” stem cell treatment.

    “I don’t know what to say,” Ms Norman said, holding back tears. “I’m lost for words. Where do you even begin to thank people?”

  • Machete attack accused out on bail

    A manaccused of attacking his friend with a machete was reacting in anger after having his bathroom smeared with faeces, a Wollongong court has heard.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Chilean national Cristian Adrian Celedon Carrasco, 38, faced Port Kembla Local Court Saturday morning charged with wounding the 48-year-old man with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

    The court heard the men had been drinking at the Harp Hotel for two hours on Thursday night before they returned to Celedon’s Corrimal Street apartment.

    Celedon allegedly went to the bathroom to check on the older man and found he haddefecated himself and was spreading faeces around the room.

    Police allege Celedon armed himself with a large Gurkha-style knife and struck the man‘s right hand, cutting him to the bone, when he refused to clean up the mess.

    The court heard Celedon then ejected the man from the unit and threw his pants into the complex stairwell.

    The victim left the unit bleeding profusely, wearing only a shirt, and walked to Wollongong Police Station.

    Police officers had great difficulty obtaining details of what had happened.

    The man’s blood trail led them to Celedon’s unit.

    The court heard Celedon, who speaks only limited English, had provided conflicting versions of what had happened, via Spanish-speaking interpreters.

    He was granted bail on condition that he not consume alcohol during his period of remand and avoid ports of departure.

    He must also comply with an apprehended violence order that prohibits him from going within 100 metres of the alleged victim.

  • Tensions threaten to boil over at Brisbane Reclaim Australia rally

    Passions threatened to boil over in Brisbane’s King George Square on Saturday as insults flew between an anti-Islamic rally, at which Pauline Hanson took centre stage, and a pro-multiculturalism counter-rally.

    Perennial political candidate Ms Hanson, the leader of One Nation, told one of the 16 Reclaim Australia rallies held across Australia on Saturday that Islam was a threat to their safety.

    At the same time, the smaller counter-rally chanted and held anti-Nazi banners.

    “It makes me sick to look around at this crowd and think that each one of us has a potential target on our heads by extreme individuals and terrorist groups,” Ms Hanson said.

    “Many Muslim extremists are leaving Australia to fight for ISIL, an organisation that hates western values and democracy.

    “…If those men have gone to fight Australian citizens with dual citizenship, I call on their citizenship to be revoked.”

    Ms Hanson, who has not been elected to office since 1996, told the crowd One Nation would contest Senate seats in every state at the next federal election.

    That announcement was met by cheers by the crowd, many of whom expressed concern that sharia law would be enforced upon Australia.

    Neither side covered itself in glory – chants of “Muslims are welcome, bigots are not” and “Nazi scum off our streets” were countered with chants of “Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi” and “bullshit bullshit bullshit”.

    One of the organisers of the counter-protest, Shayne Hunter, said it was important to send a message to Muslims that the Reclaim Australia crowd was not representative of the wider community.

    “We displayed that these views aren’t acceptable and that there is vocal opposition to the scapegoating of Muslims and blaming Muslims for everything,” he said.

    “We also showed that people understand the issue of Islamic terrorism is multidimensional.

    “Not all Muslims are to blame for it and there’s a lot of things that Australia could do, like thinking about the war crimes in Iraq and how that leads to hatred within some minorities in the Muslim world.”

    The two competing rallies at times threatened to spill over into violence, but a heavy police presence ensured no major flare-ups.

    There were some minor scuffles, however, requiring police intervention.

    Two people were given move on directions, while one man was issued with a notice to appear in court on public nuisance charges.

    Inspector David Cuskelly estimated there were about 1000 protesters in King George Square, 800 of whom were part of the Reclaim Australia rally and the remaining 200 part of the counter-rally.

    “I think generally it went very well,” he said.

    “It’s an emotive topic and our role here is to ensure people can assemble peacefully and get their point across and that’s what we’ve done today by the way we’ve managed it.

    “There were a couple of instances where people had to be separated and moved on, but there were no arrests made.”

    While Reclaim Australia organisers and most sympathisers outright rejected the “Nazi” jibes from the other group, there was evidence of some extremist infiltration.

    Users of an online white supremacy forum seen by Fairfax Media urged fellow neo-Nazis to attend the rally “undercover” to “preach our message”.

    “So no swastikas guys. No Celtic cross. No ‘Nationalist’ stuff,” the user wrote.

    “So please skinheads. Leave you suspenders and combat boots at home. Tomorrow is a undercover OP (sic) for us.”

    At least one man in the Reclaim Australia rally ignored that advice and wore a Golden Dawn t-shirt, representing a neo-Nazi party that has gained prominence in Greece in recent years.

    Mr Hunter said the neo-Nazi presence showed fascism was “not a thing of the past”.

    “They have a right to free speech, we also have a right to free speech,” he said.

    “We have a right to assemble here, a right to use our voice and challenge their louder, bigoted, racist and openly Nazi views.

    “We have a right to come here, share that platform and share our platform.”

    One of the Reclaim Australia organisers, who would only provide her first name, Cheryl, said the counter-rally was “not any of my business”.

    “We had the legal permits, we did everything legally, so it’s freedom of speech,” she said.

    “…We didn’t invade their space, they did what they did.”

    Dubious symbolism was not limited to the Reclaim Australia crowd – North Korean and Soviet flags flew over the counter-rally, and many of its front line participants covered their faces with scarves or Anonymous-style Guy Fawkes masks.

  • Still no sign of missing boy Luke Shambrook despite search in Fraser National Park

    Teams of rescuers are searching for Luke ShambrookRescue, SES and members of the public are still searching for 11 year old Luke Shambrook who went missing (around 9:30am Good Friday ) from the Candlebark camping ground in Fraser National Park, Lake Eildon. Photo by Penny Stephens. The Age. 4TH APRIL 2015 Photo: Penny StephensPolice and campers continue to frantically scour the vast and thick scrub in a national park near Lake Eildon for 11-year-old Luke Shambrook who has been missing since 9.30am on Friday.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The search is made more difficult because young Luke may not want to be found. He has autism, limited speech and a habit of hiding.

    “He may not even know he is lost,” said Sergeant Greg Paul, leading the search effort in the Fraser National Park.

    “He won’t necessary respond to searchers … he may not necessarily respond to being called. That may change a bit as he gets hungry. We don’t know whether he’s curled up sleeping somewhere, or whether he’s hiding.”

    About 60 police, SES officers and professional search and rescue personnel are taking part in the search, along with more than 50 campers taking time from out their Easter holidays.

    But even searching is nigh on impossible. The tea tree grows thick around Lake Eildon’s Candlebark Campground, where Luke was last spotted on Friday morning. His family were camping nearby.

    The searchers all but disappear into the scrub, the only trace little blue ribbons to mark areas already searched. Luke is a needle in the tea tree.

    It dropped to about 8 degrees overnight, but Luke was dressed warmly and searchers say it’s likely he survived the night. They are more concerned about the water – Luke is fascinated by it but unable to swim.

    “It was pretty cold last night, but not life-threatening cold,” said Sergeant Paul.

    “Luke was last seen wearing a jacket, he had a beanie with him. The daytime temp up here has been fairly warm. Obviously he’d be hungry and cold by now.”

    The Shambrook family released a statement on Saturday afternoon thanking campers for their efforts to find their son.

    “[We] are very grateful for the diligence and huge effort put in by all emergency units, volunteers, family and friends in searching for Luke. Our thanks to everyone for their ongoing prayers and support,” the statement read.

    Police have been inundated with offers to help, with many people who aren’t even camping nearby driving into the Fraser National Park to aid the search. It is believed the Shambrook extended family are regular visitors to the area.

    One camper said so many people in the area knew Luke that when the news broke campsites were quickly deserted as people rushed to join the search.

    “He has been walking in the area before … but we’re not sure how much he’d recall from his previous walks,” Sergeant Paul said.

    A police helicopter spent much of Saturday scouring the bushland with an infrared camera, hoping to pick up Luke’s heat signatures, while the police dog squad searches for his scent.

    State Emergency Service crews and water police have been combing the lake’s shores. Another camper said the lake was at quite a low level, so it was unlikely someone would have fallen in – Luke would have had to wade through a fair bit of mud to get to the waterline.

    Police scuba teams have also been sent to scour holes, gullies and water tanks in the national park in case Luke is hiding inside, while campers are being asked to check their tents.

    TweetFacebookFirst, Colin Garland outmarked his opponent on the Melbourne half-back line, turned, took off and kicked. Then Jay Kennedy-Harris marked, looked sideways, played on and placed his pass onto the chest of a moving Dom Tyson. Tyson took a few quick steps, sidestepped an approaching Gold Coast defender, took a few more and then guided the ball towards goal.

    Already, Jesse Hogan had taken a big mark at centre half-forward, refusing to be spoiled. Angus Brayshaw had run a player down in the centre square, Jack Viney had won more of the ball than anyone and Aaron Vandenberg had taken a mark as gutsy as Hogan’s. But Tyson’s running goal completed the Demons’ best bit of play yet: quick, precise, confident. It pushed them four goals clear of the Suns but it also raised a question: what would happen from there?

    The query was a reasonable one, given that for its many fresh faces in recent years, Melbourne had not won four points in round one since 2005. Not since John Howard was Prime Minister, the Bali Nine was arrested, Pope John Paul II died, Lance Armstrong won his seventh Tour de France and Britney Spears won a Grammy had the Demons started the season with a win and that was three coaches ago, six if you count the interims. Mark Jamar was the only member of Saturday’s side to have played in that match alongside David Neitz, Clint Bizzell, Jeff White, Adem Yze and others.

    The question also applied to the Suns, who were far from their usual slick selves and with Tom Lynch missing had no one other than Sam Day to look for moving forward. They began their first challenge early in the second half, winning more contested possessions, moving the ball forward with more urgency and starting to score with a little more ease. Three goals in a row had them within 12 points by halfway through the third quarter and more players were starting to contribute, but it was then that their other problem started to become more apparent.

    For all their attacking, the Suns weren’t simultaneously about to hold Melbourne back when the Demons got the ball. Not enough to make them anywhere anxious enough, anyway. And Melbourne wanted to hold on. Brayshaw took a tough mark. Nathan Jones kept running, Viney too. Jack Watts forced the ball to ground on the goal line so that Jeff Garlett could poke it back over with his toe. When Vandenberg smothered a ball on the 50-metre line and handballed off to a running Ben Newton, the Demons were exactly where they were half an hour earlier: four goals clear.

    They still needed to resist one last time, from a more pressured position, to make sure it all ended in a win. It happened quickly, too: Jarrod Harbrow scored in the first minute of the last quarter and then Gary Ablett bobbed up not once but twice in the forward pocket, dodging, evading and slipping past players to kick two quick goals and cut the gap to eight points, with more than half of the quarter to go.

    Again, the Demons persisted. Again they refused to panic, and again they were able to turn their hard work into goals. Watts kicked his third, around the corner from the boundary line after the ball bounced off Rory Thompson’s boot and over the line on the full. Hogan took another big mark. Newton snapped his second goal and young Sun Jack Martin helped them out at the other end, not quite making the most of his three opportunities. But the “this feels over” moment came when Nick Malceski’s pass out of the back line was intercepted by Heritier Lumumba, who was only ever going to take off, straighten up and thump through a goal.

    There was so much more to like. Watts didn’t stop working, his three goals a nice bonus. Newton (foot skills), Garlett (genius), and Lumumba (who linked the half-back and half-forward lines together nicely) all got a tick. Hogan hit the ball hard and didn’t look like a player held up by his body for so long. Brayshaw was what he was before he got to the club last November: hard, tough, competitive. So was the older Vandenberg. Given the chance to play under slightly less stress than they did for most of last season, McDonald and the other defenders controlled most of what went on around them. Any number of others deserved a spot on the best player list: Nathan Jones, Jack Viney, Jeremy Howe, Lynden Dunn, Colin Garland, Tyson.

    Melbourne know more than any other team what can go wrong. But the Demons ran and kept running; they seemed to be in motion for most of the day. They looked like a more confident, calm, organised and proactive side, but one willing to knuckle down when it looked like things were starting to turn against them. This was just a start, against a slightly underdone side that needs one or two of its key forwards back badly. But it was a very, very promising one.

  • Tips for a healthier Easter

    Easter: Easter doesn’t have to be all about consuming too much chocolate.Nutritionist Colette Heimowitz has shared her top tips and interesting facts to help people plan a healthier Easter long weekend.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Facts:

    It takes 30 minutes of brisk walking to burn off one medium 25 gram Easter egg.

    Eating every few hours maintains blood sugar and energy levels and help keep your appetite under control.

    Natural healthy fats will help the absorption of important fat soluble vitamins like A,D and K.

    Low carbohydratechocolate(such as Atkins’ Endulge bar range) contain up to 90% less sugar than regularchocolate, which means you can enjoy a tasty treat without the insulin spike afterwards.

    An 85 gram traditional hot cross bun takes 85 minutes of surfing, or 30 minutes of stair climbing to burn off.

    Gift giving at Easter is growing, with clothing, books and toy retailers stoking their shelves with Easter- themed items.According to Ryan Lin, Senior IBISWorld Analyst, chocolatespending is expected to lose ground to other spending segments, with consumers now more likely to seek out other gifts and festive experiences beyond just Easter eggs and otherchocolates.

    Tips:

    Include energetic activities in your long-weekend plans. Organise an Easter egg hunt (for novelty items, not justchocolateeggs), play a family game of soccer, go for a walk or bike ride, or clear the lounge room for a Twister tournament.

    Make low carb choices and base your Easter menu around seafood, plenty of leafy green salads and low sugar fruit for dessert. Following a structured program, such as the Atkins Nutritional Approach, can assist in educating you about the carbohydrate values of foods, and how many carbohydrates you can consume to control and maintain a healthy weight.

    Eat regularly. That’s right, no starving. Eat three regular-sized meals plus two snacks each day over the Easter break, or if you prefer, have four or five small meals.Eat until you’re satisfied but not stuffed.

    Enjoy foods with natural fats such as avocado and salmon. Natural fats are filling and will keep you satisfied longer.

    Opt for low sugar treats, or get the family together and whip up your own low sugar Easter treats.

    Select whole-grain hot-cross buns – or make your own low carbohydrate hot-cross buns at home.

    Give – and request – small gifts rather thanchocolateeggs for Easter. Games, books, DVDs and toys can help create a fun and entertaining long weekend.
