We’ll not forget them

REMEMBERING OUR DIGGERS: Christine Thomson, right, a grand-daughter of Bullah Vardy (pictured inset), at the Mawson Park Anzac Day ceremony with her daughter, Cheryl, and grandson, Harry Polglasse.AtPozieresin 1916, local soldier William ‘Bullah’ Vardy slumped in a muddy trench and scribbled in his pocket diary:‘‘Our men are making their attempt to take the German trenches. My God what a terrible bombardment. The sky is lit up for miles and the roar of the big guns would nearly deafen you. God pity the fallen tonight, it is terrible. This is a war of wars.’’

Going by the huge Anzac Day crowds on Monday, I’d say Bullah’s horrific experiences a century ago still resonate with us today.

There is no generation gap on April 25. Banners held high, school blazers on, I reckon students made up almost half the crowd at the Campbelltown service, and I’m sure it was similar at Camden and Wollondilly.

At Mawson Park I bumped into Harry Polglasse, the captain of John Therry Catholic High School at Rosemeadow. He’s also the great-great grandson of Bullah Vardy.

Harry was there with mum, Cheryl, and his nan, Christine Thomson (Vardy), who well remembers her grandfather, who died in 1971.But typical of many Diggers, Bullah wasn’t one to talk a lot about the horrors he had seen. “He never talked about the war,” Christine told me, “we only know things about Pa’s experiences from his diaries.”

Some of the people at the Anzac Day ceremonies held framed photographs of their Digger forebears, and wore their medals, as young and old mixed as one, remembering sacrifices of the past.

World War I has a special place in our national psyche because ofthe massive impact it had on our tiny nation: more than 60,000 killed and 150,000 wounded. That is staggering. In 1914, for example, less than 2000 men, women and children lived in the rural valley between Glenfield and Menangle Park. Yet 250 Campbelltonians served, 40 of them left in war graves.

If you want to get a picture of the impact, let’s translate it into the present population of Campbelltown: that would mean about 20,000 of our young men and women marching off and 4000 of them being killed. The maths are probably similar for Camden, and I can only imagine the wrench those sorts of figures had on the tiny villages of Wollondilly Shire.

As far Bullah Vardy, a bank teller from Allman Street in civilian life, he served with the 1st Field Artillery at Pozieres, which saw the heaviest artillery bombardment of the war. Few diggers emerged unaffected. ‘‘The shelling of Pozieres,’’ wrote war correspondent Charles Bean, ‘‘did not merely probe character and nerve; it laid them stark naked as no other experience ever did.’’

Here are just a few of Bullah’s 1916diary entries:

July 24:‘‘All our chaps have taken the village of Pozieres and dug themselves in. Four of us had to visit the front line, so here I am. By gum, it’s hot. Germans only a few hundred yards away. I have been in the front line all day.’’

July 25:‘‘Had a very rough night last night. I am running dispatches from the trenches to the battery with heavy shellfire. My officer wounded. Day before, three men from the battery wounded.’’

July 26:‘‘Last night was hell. Our boys again attacking and the casualties were heavy. Was buried by a big shell in my dugout. Men close by killed. While observing a number of bomb throwers through the glasses a sniper had shot at me and only missed by a few inches, but got poor chap behind me. Trenches full of dead and wounded.’’

Lest we forget them.

Pros and cons of portable

Nanjing Night Net

COMPACT: This Kambrook ceramic tower heater operates at a low surface temperature and is self regulating, creating a safe and energy efficient warmth in smaller spaces.

Consumers have a lot to consider when deciding on which portable heater will most suit their needs.

There are different benefits to each of thefan, oil, ceramic, radiant and micathermic heaters on the market.

Nancy Humphreys, senior category manager at Kambrook, explained some of the pros and cons.

“With a wide range of portable heaters available, remember that each product is suited to a particular environment,” she said.

“Ceramic heaters are ideal for small to mid-size living areas, such as bedrooms.Portable and affordable, fan heaters are great for personal heating in smaller spaces such as studies.

“As one of the more versatile options, oil heaters are great for all sized, closed living areas and radiant heaters offer instant, personal heat and are ideal for use in larger open plan spaces.”

Bi-riteCarey CoversFostersLyal EalesMidwest ElectricalArarat Mower CentreGilbert & JuryStephen Dalton GasfittingTJO ServicesShe said convection heaters offer comfort for mid-sized living areas but one of themost energy efficient options weremicathermic heaters which are able to heat up quickly and evenly, reaching full power output in just minutes.

“When it comes to thedifferences between convection and radiant heat there are some key points to remember.Radiant heaters emit heat from a hot surface (e.g. the glowing red bars in a radiator) to generate heat without directly warming the air.

“Radiant heaters are ideal in larger, open plan areas, and spaces that have high ceilings which do not retain warm, heated air. Radiant heaters do not dry out the air as quickly as most other forms of heating.

“Convection heaters fill a space with warmth by heating air. These are ideal for smaller spaces sealed against draughts, where the warm air can be continually reheated.

She saidmicathermic heaters were different to other types of heaters and could be a better choice than an oil, fan or radiant heater.

“Micathermic heaters can heat up quickly and evenly, reaching full power output in just minutes. Offering instant warmth, this type of heating requires less time and energy to bring the room up to temperature.

Launch concert for opera

LAUNCH CONCERT: Producer of music Valda Silvy and Western Sydney Opera Company founder and tenor, Lorenzo Rositano.The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre will be the backdrop for the launch concert of the new Western Sydney Opera Company next week.
Nanjing Night Net

The newly-formed company’s May 7 launch willfeature opera’s emerging artists performing operatic highlightsas well as songs from operetta and musical theatre.

The young cast will include Lorenzo Rositano,Paul Smith, Daniel Macey, Christopher Nazarian, Taryn Srhoj, Questra Mulqueeny and Allegra Giagu, accompanied by John Martin.

Rositano of Kingswood is founder and tenor of the new company, and said he was passionate about bringing the project to life.

Having studied at theSydney Conservatorium of Music, in London and in Italy, Rositano wants to give others in the west the opportunity to have quality operatic productions on their CV.

“I have had my chance and many opportunities, and that’s what I want to give back to locals,” hetold theGazette.

“I am completely immersed in the whole proposal, it’s my absolute passion.Since returning from Italy it’s something I have put my whole heart into.”

Rositano was inspired to start the company in Italy after seeing that even small theatres could put on magnificent opera productions.

“I thought, why are we not doing something like this around the corner from where I live?” he said.

Rositano produced and directed a production of La Boheme at The Joan in September of last year, assisted by funding from Penrith City Council for the new company.

Cast members hail from the Blue Mountains and western Sydney, and Rositano said the local productions would provide the springboard for many to travel overseas.

“When you do operas at the conservatorium you perform them as a student, but this is in a professional capacity,” he said.

It also brought opera closer to the people of Penrith.

“It’s giving people the opportunity to come and watch opera at their doorstep,” Rositano said.

Performing Arts Centre CEO Hania Radvan said the formation of Western Sydney Opera was “a great indicator of the vibrancy and artistic health of the region”.

“We are delighted to see independent artists such as Lorenzo Rositano and Western Sydney Opera reaching audiences and thriving,” she said.

The company will also stage a production of Donizetti’sThe Elixir of Loveat The Joan in September.

The launch concert begins at 7pm on Saturday, May 7. Adult tickets are $50, concession $45, and bookings can be made by calling 4723-7600.

Late goal earns Quarriers a draw

Kiama Quarriers FC travelled to Keith Bond Oval to meet Oak Flats Falcons on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

First grade coach James Spence -bouyed by a 2-0 home victory over Wests Illawarra in his side’s last league fixture and a pulsating 4-3 victory at Fernhill in the Bert Bampton Cup on Tuesday -was without injured central midfielder Todd Wade so decided on a midfield pairing of Aaron Buzinki and Jacob Lester.

The back four consisted of the familiar quartet of Kane Rowe, Chris Hill, Dean Land and Daniel Gillespie, while Dylan McDonald retained his place in goals. Chris Christodoulou and Jesse Annen started on the wings, and James Donlon and Keegan Beringer spearheaded the strike force.

The opening twenty minutes were fiercely contested but Kiama lacked the craft to breach the experienced Oak Flats defence. Kiama did find the net in the 40th minute after Buzinki met Christodoulou’s corner from the left flank with a bullet header. However, referee John Ruscica ruled the goal out for a seemingly innocuous foul in the penalty area.

19-year-old Lester was dangerous in midfield and Donlon held the ball up well but Kiama could not find a breakthrough in the first half and the scores remained 0-0 at half time.

It was Oak Flats who opened the scoring early in the second half. Kiama failed to prevent a dangerous cross coming in from the right flank and midfielder Christian Cappetta nodded past the sprawling McDonald to make it 1-0 to the hosts.

Kiama piled the pressure on Oak Flats and Land’s move into central midfield added thrust to their attacking movements. Daniel Swinton came on to play on the right flank while Lester and Annen looked to beguile the Oak Flats defence with their trickery.

The breakthrough finally came with less than ten minutes remaining after Oak Flats goalkeeper Chris Jarman could only parry Buzinki’s shot to Lester, who unleashed an unstoppable half volley from 18 metres past the goalkeeper and into the net.

Kiama finished the match stronger and had further chances through Buzinki and Land but the match ended 1-1.

Earlier in the day, Jason Perinich’s youth grade side fought hard but let themselves down after conceding a 90th minute goal and losing 1-0 to the young Falcons. Phillip Bitterlin was immense in goals for the Quarriers and saved a second half penalty.

Neil Spence’s reserve grade side also fell to a late goal but were incredibly unlucky to lose 2-1. Falcons midfielder Brady Eagleton opened the scoring after their seemed to be a foul on goalkeeper Dean Beichert. Daniel Swinton levelled matters early in the second half with a sharp left-footed shot that evaded the Oak Flats goalkeeper.

Elegant striker Jye Marks suffered a nasty knee injury and had to be withdrawn after Spence had made all three substitutions so his side played with ten men for over 20 minutes. They eventually succumbed to a late headed goal from former Quarriers player Daniel Pisani.

Kiama host Balgownie Rangers at the Quarry on Saturday.

Setting the right example for children

Nanjing Night Net

BE SAFE: Winter is a dangerous time of year for house fires with a high percentage occurring in the cooler months. Experts say fire safety education should start in the home, with parents setting a good example for their children.

As Australian households look for ways to stay warm and cosy this winter, Wormald is reminding families to be extra vigilant about keeping their homes fire safe and discussing fire prevention with their children.

Winter is the most dangerous time of year for house fires with more than sixtyper cent of home fires occurring in the cooler months. Unfortunately, when it comes to house fire fatalities, children are in a high-risk group.

John Lynch from Wormald believes fire safety education should start in the home, with parents setting a good example for their children.

“If children see that their parents are taking fire safety seriously, they are far more likely to take it seriously as well.

“With the majority of house fires preventable, it is vital that families conduct a fire safety audit of the home. This includes ensuring that the smoke alarms are installed in the correct location, batteries been replaced with new ones (if it’s an existing alarm) and checking that fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers or fire blankets are in good working order.

“Smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and fire blankets are all essential tools for defending a home against a fire.”

This Advertising Feature is sponsored by the following businesses. Click the link to learn more:

Bi-riteCarey CoversFostersLyal EalesMidwest ElectricalArarat Mower CentreGilbert & JuryStephen Dalton GasfittingTJO ServicesIn addition to ensuring the home is fitted with working smoke alarms, families are encouraged to develop a fire escape plan and practice it regularly with the entire family. This can also be a fun way for children to get involved in the fire safety discussion.

A fire escape plan should start with a floor plan of the home that maps out the quickest escape route from each room and indicates where fire safety equipment is kept. The fire escape plan should then be practised regularly by the entire family including children so they don’t forget what to do in case of a fire emergency.

Wormald has the following child-friendly fire safety advice for parents to help them reduce the risk of fire in the home:

Ensure children know what the smoke alarm sounds like and they what to do if they hear it. Keep matches and lighters well out of reach of children.Ensure children are kept at a safe distance away from heaters, candles, and oil burners.Supervise children in the kitchen and keep them away from the stovetop and oven.Ensure heaters are always kept on a flat stable surface on the floor and away from curtains or other flammable items such as clothes and toys.Be aware that some children may have a natural curiosity about fire and be tempted to be involved in ‘fire play’.Related stories:

Bees versus elephants

KENYA: Farmers fix a roof onto a beehive fence which has been implemented to keep elephants out of their crops. Elephants fear bees. A UNIVERSITY of Newcastle PhD student is working on a project to solve a problem plaguing farmers in Kenya and it involves elephants and bees.
Nanjing Night Net

Kylie Butler is working with Dr Lucy King, head of the award-winning human-elephant co-existence program, Elephants and Bees, in Kenya to dealwith the problem of wild elephants dashing fromthe jungle to raid the gardens and crops of local villagers.

“As you might imagine the villagers object strongly to these night raids on their crops and livelihoods and retaliate with bullets, rocks and firecrackers to scare the elephants off,” her colleague at the Faculty of Science and ITProfessor Tim Roberts said.

Death and injury to both humans and elephants often results.

“Along came Lucy King with a simply brilliant solution that could both keep the village farms safe and also protect the elephants from harm,” Dr Roberts said.

“She devised a bee-fence. And it worked.”

Elephants avoid bees at all costs and if they hear bees buzzing then they take off to avoid the sting of this tiny creature. But not only that, the elephants then go back to their herd and tell the other elephants to steer clear of the bees.

Bee-fencing involves building single-wire fencing around the area of farmland to be protected and suspending beehives on the wire at intervals along the fence. When an elephant knocks the wire the hives swing and the disturbed bees fly out. The buzzing is sufficient to make the elephants leave.

Further value is added by the pollination services, honey and beeswax that the bees provide. Following the success of the program in Africa Ms Butler is establishing a beehive fence study site in Sri Lanka to scientifically evaluate the potential of using Asian honeybees as an Asian elephant crop-raiding deterrent.The Elephants and Bees project has also been adopted in Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda.The project is part of Save the Elephants, a charity with afocus on research, education, grass-roots conservation, monitoring and protection.

Buddhist temple push

Moving forward: Members of Ballarat’s Thai community meeting with Buddhist monks. Those behind the move for a temple will try and bring a monk or monks to Ballarat next. PICTURE: Supplied. A campaign for a Ballarat Thai Buddhist temple has got off to a strong start.
Nanjing Night Net

Just weeks after announcing a push those behind it sayit has raised almost $15,000 to get the process started from people in Ballarat and Melbourne.

DipYuanjit said members of the Ballarat Thai community had met with monks over the weekend to talk about their plans and were buoyed by the response.

He said a temple in Ballarat would help strengthen the Thai community.

“We have 100–200 people in the Thai community in Ballarat, and now people go to Melbourne to visit the monks…I think maybe a bit too far to go all the time,” he said.

“We already have a Thai association, set up last year, but one thing missing is a Buddhist temple.”

Danai Adirekchotikul is also involved with the project.

He said over the next six months they would try and bring a monk to Ballarat.

“We’re looking for the prayers that we can invite the monk who can stay in Ballarat and meet the people,” he said.

Both men said the response to theSongkranFestival earlier in the month had shown the Thai community was keen to get together, and Mr Yuanjit said he had had support from the rest of the Ballarat community as well.

“(Buddhism) is about peace and quiet, so most people we know are supportive, they are happy,” he said.

The group met with the City of Ballarat on Tuesday and were positive after the discussion with officers.

As they have not identified a site planning considerations are still a long way off, but MrAdirekchotikul said not to expect a big gold-topped place of worship like those seen in Thailand.

“We meet the monk, we see how the Thai people (and) Australian people respond to what we are doing, and after six months we plan another six months and look at what will the place be, that is suitable for (us),” he said.

MrAdirekchotikul said they would look at sites close to town as building a temple far out would undermine the goal of bringing one closer to people.

The dominant form of Buddhism in Thailand is theTheravāda branch.

This is common in South East Asia, but separate to the Buddhism practised in eastern Asian countries.

Kimba’s twilight victory

Kimba 18.14 (122) defPorts 7.7 (49)KIMBA met Ports at Corey Enright Oval for the opening game of the 2016 season on Anzac weekend.
Nanjing Night Net

This was also the first twilightgame, a first for the Eastern Eyre Football League.

The start was important as neither teamwassure how they would play in the dark.

Ports won the toss and kicked to the northern end.

Kimba’s starting midfield was a completely new one in Kemp, Clements and Rodda and with that they got the early clearance and captain Dion Woolford kicked the first goal of the game.

Ports got a quick reply though through Major Lienert then asecond goal and they were up and about with Evan Hunt and Major Lienert winning plenty of the ball.

The game got tight and scrappy before Rodda produced a great running goal to finish the quarter.

The second quarter started at lightning pace with Jesse Kemp and Clements starting to dominate the game.

Kimba were getting more inside fifties than GWS v Port Adelaide in Canberra but to Ports’ credit theirdefence was holding strong.

Ports’ defenders Brad Masters, Matt Dodd and Matty Nichalls continued to repel the ball out of defence and eventually got a goal against the play. Before they knew it, they had back to back goals and the game started to tighten up again.

It wasn’t until late in the quarter that Kimba got three quick ones to go into half time with the momentum, Kimba 9.6 to Ports 4.4.

The second half started with lights in full effect.

Cambell and Hunt were working hard for Ports but Kemp, Clements and Vandeleur still had control in the middle and it wasn’t long before Kimba goaled through Congdon.

Kemp added a goal before Ports got one back through Evan Hunt.

At the end of the quarter the game was still up for grabs, with Kimba leading by32points.

The last quarter started with Adam Davey having a set shot within the first twenty seconds.

He missed and Kimba went from one end to the other with fluency with Congdon kicking the goal.

From there the goals flowed with two to Blair ‘son of a gun’ Buchanan one to Lienert then Congdon kicked his third from the boundary, which will result in him declaring “it’s the goal of the year for at least the next week”.

Not bad from a back pocket I guess.

Ports continued to put the effort in but the sheer weight of numbers meant the flood gates had to open eventually givingKimba a good first up win.

Better players for Kimba were Anzac MedallistAndrew Vandeleur followed by Clements, Rodda and Kemp.

For Ports Tom Clark and Ben Batten ran hard all day and Brad Noble fought hard all day.

HIGH FLYERS: Kimba’s Jesse Kemp and Ports’ Brad Noble.

Forecasters urge patience

PREPARED: Noradjuha farmer Tim Rethus prepares for the upcoming sowing season on the sprayer. Picture: GREGOR HEARDWIMMERA farmers are impatiently waiting for similar sweeping opening rains to those that drenched Western Australia earlier in the month.
Nanjing Night Net

Forecasters have a strong message for them. Be patient.

There is little relief in the immediate outlook, with most models suggesting no rain of substance until at least the start of May.

But from then on, there are some unprecedented strong signals to suggest a wet season.

Agriculture Victoriaseasonal variability agronomist Dale Grey said he had been involved in the climate monitoring project The Break for eight years.

He said this year is the first time over that period that signals have pointed so strongly at this time of year to factors associated with wetter than average conditions over eastern Australia.

“Of the models we look at, nine out of nine are predicting a negative Indian Ocean Dipole event, consistent with increased rain in south-eastern Australia, will develop in the spring.

“The south-west corner of Victoria has never experienced a drier than average spring when there is a negative IOD event.”

Birchip Cropping Group’s yield prophet manager Tim McClelland said models used by his organisation had a similar upbeat message.

“There are certainly signals emerging consistent with above-average rainfall,” he said.

“The Bureau of Meteorology has upgraded its La Niña tracker to a ‘watch’ and says there is now a 50 per centchance of a La Niña developing.”

Mr Grey said the current dry conditions could partially be attributed to the final influences of last year’s strong El Niño.

He said the Pacific Ocean was still in an El Niño pattern, but added the event was decaying fast.

“There’s a big pool of cold water at depth in the Pacific Ocean,” he said.

“We are now hoping to see that water come to the surface which will then play a role in forming a La Niña.”

Tempering the exciting forecast, Mr Grey said the accuracy of forecasting models was historically low at this time of year.However, he said it was rare to see the models all converging on similar outlooks in relation to the Indian and Pacific Oceans this early in the year.

I don’t know what exactly they are identifying to come to this conclusion, but the fact they are all in agreement is heartening,” he said.“We’ve never seen the models so emphatically pointing in one direction at this time of the year.”

Of the models used by The Break, seven out of nine are predicting a wetter than average spring across south-eastern Australia.

Edenhope grain site for sale

Mike and Di Holland, Edenhope Storage, will sell the site that they own as part of a joint venture with Emerald Grain. Picture: CONTRIBUTEDEMERALDGrainhas its Edenhope Storagegrainhandling site on the market.
Nanjing Night Net

Edenhope Storage is a joint venture betweenEmerald Grainand the Holland family.

It is located in the far west Wimmera and is a road only site.

EmeraldGrainchief executive John Murray saidEmeraldhaddecided to put its share onthe market after the Hollands announced they planned to depart.

“The site, while a wonderful site, from our point of view, is not freight advantaged to our assets at the port of Melbourne,” he said.

“Sowe thought with the Hollands wanting to sell, we could take the opportunity to explore our options.”

The Edenhope site has been upgraded in the past few years, with more than $2 million in capital upgrades, including improved road access and increased storage capacity.

In 2014 Emerald Grain tripled the site’s storage capacity, adding 40,000 tones of storage and recieval capacity.

Two new storage sheds were built at the time.

Now, there is 85,000 tonnes of capacity at the site, with60,000 tonnesof that permanent storage.

The site increased in size since opening up as Holland Bulk Storage, reflecting increasedgrainproduction in the south-west Wimmera.

Mr Murray said ifEmeralddid not find a buyer it would continue to operate the site.

Hesaid there had been strong interest so far.

“We’ve had enquiriesfrom both Wimmera and national concerns,” he said.

Should the Edenhope site sell,EmeraldGrainwould have ten bulk handling sites, down from a peak of 14 a couple of years ago.

However Mr Murray said the company was committed to its storage and handling sector, focusing on using sites that complementEmerald’s port assets.

TheEmeraldGrainstorage network extends across Victoria and southern NSW.

The majority of the sites are linked by rail to port.

All up, nine different breeds will be represented during the event, held on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7.

Six new members will also participate, along withanother dozen established members who will be welcoming visitors from across the region, catering for both stud and commercial beef interests.

Ten studs will open their doors from early morning on Friday,while nine will open all day Saturday.

Taking on the committee’s chairmanship for his first year is Wayne Petrie who conducts the Javid Square Meaters stud with wife, Jenny, in the Kangaroobie district north of Orange.

Mr Petrie said this was the third year their herd had opened for inspection and wished all members participating a most successful event, especially the new displays.

“We had absolutely tremendous success last year, being busy with inquiries while the follow-up was very good,” he said.

“Beef Week allowed us to get around and understand a lot more about the beef industry in our region.

“People who visit will arrive with a lot of questions and we are also seeking answers to our own questions, so an open day concept like this becomes an educational experience for the breeder and visitor.”

Mr Petrie said not only visitors got to look into breeding practices while on properties, they couldalso learn about pasture and stock grazing rotations and regimes.

“There’s a lot to learn about breeding, so take the opportunity to network during your visit.

“You can find out about joining, calving and other beneficial information which you may not utilise immediately, but keep in mind for future times on your own property.”

Speaking on behalf of major sponsor, Cydectin, Virbac Animal Health’s central west area manager, Ben Kidd, said his company believed Central West Beef Week was a great concept to back.

“The opendays allowpeople to inspect a cross-section of breeds whilevisiting a number of differentherds in a couple of days without having to phone and make appointments,” he said.

“It’s quite unique to be able to see top breeding stock in their own environment on-propertyin a casual atmosphere without the pressure ofbeing at a public sale where youmay be obliged to purchase.”
