You’re a hero or a zero in space of one metre

Afterdriving at speeds approaching 250km/hdownthe straights, scrapping the side mirror against concrete walls at 180 and jumping thecar over curbs at well over 150, the top 15 cars qualified within half a second of eachother at Townsville.
Nanjing Night Net

Thatequates to around one-metre in distance between first and 15thand tells us acouple of things. Firstly, the drivers are incredibly skilful but surely in need of some form of therapy. Secondly,this is the most competitive sport in the country,where after three kilometres of near out-of-control madness, you are just an also ran ifyou’re more than one metre behind the winner.

Welcome to Brad Jones’world.

DRIVEN: Albury’s Brad Jones is a man with a plan to win a V8 Championship, saying ‘you keep getting stronger – that’s what you can then build a championship year on’.

Just make it even more interesting, American billionaire Rodger Penske lured Joneskey Driver Engineer combination of Fabian Coulthard and Phil Keens to join his DJRPenske team at the end of last season.

Despite the challenges, Jones said the first half of the year has been successful with two wins and a second from the first sevenevents.

“With change you always go through a difficult period,” Jones said from his office atBJR HQ in Albury this week.

“But I would describe the first half of the year assuccessful. Jason in the BOC car had a great start but we reallystruggled with the freightliner car at the start and getting to know Tim (Slade).

“We both ended up learning a fair bit about each other fairly quickly but now we have beenpretty successful. Even after a tough weekend like we had in Townsville where itdoesn’t suit us, we were still in the top 15, so we have consistency andresults that gives us confidence.”

With only two races left until the teams hit the showcase events of the year – Sandown500, Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600 – Jones is squarely focused on more racewins and putting the team in position to challenge for a championship.

“We have two tracks coming up where we have struggled a bit – Sandown andGold Coast, but we are working on some things to minimise that,” he said.

“It’s a three-yearplan to win a championship, right now we are still getting to know Tim and he’s stillgetting to know us; my focus is to make sure he finishes the year at worst in the top 10in the championship, but ideally in the top five and we will need a strong secondhalf of the year to achieve that. You keep getting stronger; that’s what you can thenbuild a championship year on,” Jones said.

There is real momentum in the BJR camp and with brother Kim, Jones has theexperience to turn it into on track success. Once known for punchingabove its weight, other teams as well as the sport’s leading commentators nowknow that the Brad Jones Racing team is a consistent top 10performer and thenext step is to win a Supercar Championship.

For this weekend though, as the teamshead to Queensland raceway for round 8, Brad Jones will just be looking to find thatelusive half a second that will put them at the front of the field.

Tigers far too good for Rovers

The undefeated Bungendore Tigers continued on their winning way proving too strong for the Boorowa Rovers. The final score favoured Bungendore 38-4 but didn’t really reflect the game.
Nanjing Night Net

It was only in the final quarter of the match when the Tigers began to pull away from a very plucky Rovers team who just couldn’t penetrate some tough defence despite many promising raids.

Bungendore got away to a flying start leading 10-0 after just 10 minutes.

The Rovers launched a counter attack and very nearly crossed just three minutes later. A fiery blow up saw a Tigers player sent to the sin-bin.

Boorowa were quick to capitalise with Kris halls crossing wide out after some good lead up work. With the score at 10-4 Boorowa continued to mount several attacking raids but the Tigers defence held firm. Bungendore then went further aheadjust before halftime to make the score 16-4 at the break.

The second half,Bungendore scoredquickly after just three minutes to extend the lead to 22-4. The match began to get heated as both forward packs tried to dominate with some good hits. The Rovers tried hard to penetrate the Bungendore defensive line and probably deserved more points. It was Bungendore however, that raced in three tries in the final fifteen minutes to blow the score out somewhat to 38-4.

Despite the score, it was one of Boorowa’s better displays with some promising signs in attack and some willing defence. Best for Boorowa was Mick Hinds who picked up three points and was creative in attack all day. Kris Halls was also impressive picking up two points and Mr Consistency, Matt Batt got one point. Players player was Mick Hinds whilst the Fabstock award went to Justin Corkery.

In other games on the weekend, Boomanulla won a tight game 28-20 over Braidwood whilst Harden hammered the gunning Roos 52-10 and the North Canberra 54 soundly beat Crookwell 18.

This weekend’s other games see Boomanulla hosting Harden, Bungendore play Gunning and ADFA face a huge task against North Canberra. Crookwell has the bye.

The Rovers have just one home game left for the season on Saturday week when they host ADFA. One date supporters should also note is September 10 when the Ex-services club will host the Rovers presentation night. Meanwhile, this weekend get along and support the lads at Braidwood on Saturday at 2.30 pm. Then on Saturday night the boys will be back at the Courthouse to hopefully celebrate a win.

Fallen digger’s sacrifice lives on

Keeping history alive: Max Hammond and Helen Raw commemorated the service and sacrifice of their uncle, Private Wallace Hill Hammond. Picture: Anthony Brady
Nanjing Night Net

As Helen Raw and Max Hammond gathered at Warrnambool’s war memorial on Tuesday, it marked the day their uncle, Wallace Hill Hammond, died on the French battlefield100 years before.

Private Hammond was killed in the battle ofFromelles, July 19, 1916, in what was some of the fiercest fighting of the war so far.

Part of the 60thBattalion, Private Hammond, 18, was killed by a German shell.

While a sergeant was reported to have seen his body in no man’s land, it was never recovered, and what followed was an agonising wait for his family back home in Warrnambool.

“He was reported missing but it was 12 months before his death was confirmed, so they lived in hope that he was alive,” Mrs Raw said.

Despite many mass graves being uncovered over the years,Private Hammond’s body was never found and hisname is now listed on VC Corner at Fromelles.

He became the first of several generations of the family to serve acrossboth world wars.Mrs Raw’s four brothers, including Max,and husband Peter fought in World War II.

Private Wallace’s three medals— the 1914/15 Star, BritishWar Medal and VictoryMedal — were worn on Anzac Day for the first time last yearby Mrs Raw’s nieceMichelle Butters.

“I love the Anzac history and my family was so heavily connected … It’s important that the younger generation understandhow important our military history is,” Ms Butters said at the time.

The battle of Fromelles was the first major action involving Australian soldiers in France.

At that time it rated as the battle responsible forthe greatest loss of Australian life in 24 hours and claimed thousands of lives over two days.

Filled with the spirit of adventure, Private Hammond enlisted in Warrnambool on July 1915and embarked from Melbourne aboard HMAT Wiltshire inNovember of the same year.

But Private Hammond did not leave Australian shoresbefore receiving the blessing of his parents, Thomas and Lydia, and his employer.

“Wallaceworked at The Standard as a compositor,” Mrs Raw said.

On Private Wallace’sofficial release form, then Standard director Thomas Burden wrote: “Thiscompany has no objection tothe indentures being brokenfor the purpose of the saidWallace Hammond enlistingto fight for the Empire, andwishes him every successand a safe return.”

While it seems that fate hadother ideasfor Private Wallace,his memory,at least, lives on.

Hairdressing qualifications to get cutTerrible. I’ll never let an unqualified “hairdresser” touch my hair.
Nanjing Night Net

– Brittaney Mitchell

Just more ways for Baird to justify closing TAFE training……wrong wrong wrong!!

– Renna Ross

There’s a petition against this if you agree it’s ludicrous and want to sign.

http://梧桐夜网hairstylists.org419论坛/petition

– ​Megan Ellbourn

Totally disagree; my sister and her friends did five years in their apprenticeships. Just the chemicals and hygiene are an issue which needs to be properly addressed. They did it tough to qualify too.

– Pam Beedev

My question would be would currently certified and trained hairdressers get reimbursed the costs of their studies which now will mean jack all .. Also would you want your house built by untrained, inexperienced builders or licensed and educated, experienced builders? It seems Australia is setting itself up for industrial collapse there is no industry that’s safe first our car manufacturing now this.

No, no, no. Qualifications are needed.

Are you kidding me?

Well I’llstick to my hairdresser…

Yes. I did see something! That’s so wrong there’s going to b some hair in the sink and some dodgy styles out there.

​- Coleen Taggart

Another govt excuse to cut TAFE funding?

– ​Fiona McLennan

It’s hard enough now trying to find a decent hairdresser that can actually cut hair let alone throwing this .. into the mix😡

-Emma Mulligan

I’ve had shocking hair do’s in the past. Actually asked one lassie to see her diploma. Hava good look at the hairdresser’s hair, if they look after their own, you’ve got a good chance. Having a diploma doesn’t make a person competent. Pride in your work does.

Informative WAB gathering

INFORMATIVE: Stewarts Range WAB member Janet Lindsay thanks Josh Rosser of the Natural Resources Management Board for his time with a small gift.Members of the Stewarts Range WABenjoyed an informative presentation at their meeting on July 6.
Nanjing Night Net

Josh Rosser from the Natural Resources Management Board was welcomed as the guest speaker.

Part of Josh’s job is to work with people with weed identification, chemical rates for spraying, spraying of declared weeds if needed and fox and rabbit eradication.

He also stressed the importance when laying bait to have signs on gates, let your neighbours know, as well as doing the required paperwork.

If your dog takes a bait an antidote is now available.

A member brought in a weed but it was too far gone to be identified.

All members received a weed control handbook and Josh went through it with us. He also answered all our questions.

We were amazed how many plants in the garden are declared weeds, as well as some that should be.

Janet Lindsay thanked Josh with a small gift for his very enjoyable and informative talk and discussions.

Committee members had previously met at Hazel Hack’s home to collate the forthcoming year program.

Competition winners: Farm Animal – 1st Betty Hack, 2nd Janet Lindsay. Bloom – 1st Janet Lindsay, 2nd C. Wyers.

The meeting ended with the roll call of ‘asport that you like watching’ and these included the Olympics, swimming, tennis, netball andequestions events. Watching the grandchildren play soccer was also a favourite.

Although Batemans Bay is the largest Salvation Army ministry in the area, it only officially opened in 1986, under the leadership ofEnvoy Les Shaw.

Batemans Bay Corps’ Captain Melanie-Anne Holland praised the Eurobodalla community for its support of the Salvation Army, andsaid she and husband Captain Ross Holland had enjoyed their two-and-a-half years so far in the shire.

“It has gone quickly,” she said.

“A highlight has been working together with the other churches, which has had wonderful results.”

Nanjing Night Net

However, Kiama resident MrsSutherland has recovered froma week filled with early wake-up calls, blisters, flights and halfmarathons –all for charity.

Mrs Sutherland completed anendurance running challenge in June/July to raise funds and awareness for national child protection advocateBravehearts.

She tackled half marathons, completing21km a day for sevenconsecutive days.

Bravehearts is an Australian charity which seeksto educate, empower and protect Australian kids from sexual assault.

Billed as “Australia’s biggest charity run to protect kids”, the Bravehearts 777 marathonchallengeincorporatesseven marathons in sevendays in sevenstates/territories.

CHALLENGE: Sharon Sutherland earlier this year, preparing for a gruelling physical challenge to raise funds for charity. Picture: ADAM MCLEAN

The challenge schedule began onJune 27 inPerth, eventually culminating at Australia’slargest marathonon the Gold CoastonJuly 3.

“As long as you raise the money, you can do half marathons, you can walk, do 10km, whatever you can on the day,” Mrs Sutherland said.

“There were 20 people running and as a team we raised over $315,000 for Bravehearts.

“This is Bravehearts’ biggest fundraiser.

“It does not receive a lot of government funding.This will help so many children who suffer child sexual abuse and survivors of this horrific act.

“Among other things we have raised enough for 13,000 counseling sessions for abused kids.”

Mrs Sutherland implementeda strict training regiment for the months leading up to the challenge.

This included three-time Uncle Toby’s Ironman series winnerGuy Andrewsprovidingencouragement and assistance with fitness, trainingand motivation.

Mrs Sutherland said each day of the challenge consisted of the same routine:up at 5am,5.30am breakfast and hotel checkout,6.15am leave hotel,7am start running,1pm back to hotel for showers,2.15pm off to airport,8pm land in next city and10pm bed.

“It was a tough, grueling week,” she said.

“What kept us all going was thinking of the kids who needed help and the funds and awareness we were raising.

“The blisters and sore feet were nothing compared to what some kids are going through.

“At each city we had people join us and tell us their stories.”

Mrs Sutherlandstarted running little more than twoyears ago at the age of 43.

Shecompleted fivehalf marathons, twoCity to Surf races, twoRun Wollongong races and twoother fun runs prior to taking on the Bravehearts challenge.

Mrs Sutherland became aware ofBravehearts while reading a running magazine, andsaid her goal was“to do something different” for an important cause.

“When I started looking at the charity and the numbers, it’s like one in five kids are sexually abused in Australia,” she said.

“I’m considering doing the challenge again next year.

“It’s such a worthwhile cause, and it’s just the stories you hear along the way.”
