    Liam Dutton, a weatherman for Channel 4 in the UK, was presenting his regular weather report when he was confronted with a name so long that it stretched across the North Sea and into the Netherlands.

    But Dutton, who speaks Welsh, didn’t break a sweat. (Click on the image below to watch the video).

    “Now today, we had a big contrast in temperature across the UK, just 12 degrees over coastal parts of Eastern England, with cloudy skies,” he begins, before gesturing to the 58-letter name towards the bottom of the screen.

    “But in the sunshine, in north-west Wales at RAF Mona, just up the road from Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the temperature got to 21 celsius.”

    The tongue-twister took him more than 4 seconds to say, but he did it flawlessly and with a straight face.

  • Setback for The Hills homeowners hoping to make millions selling to developers

    thumbnail

    Residents in The Hills district expecting windfalls of millions of dollars for their homes from high-rise developers after rezoning along the new North West rail line face a major setback in their plans to cash in.
    Nanjing Night Net

    On Tuesday nightThe Hills Councilvoted to put on public exhibition its plans to limit high density housing to areas closer to stations, often on council land, and permit only lower developments elsewhere.

    “[The]night was about who stole Christmas,” said real estate agent David Dowling, the principal of Ray White Castle Hill.

    “The council hasdecimated the height everywhere except on council land. Some people who thought they’d get 18 storeys on their land will now get only four.”

    There hadbeen scenes reminiscent of an old-style gold rush after the NSW State Government released its vision for the north west rail link corridor in September 2013, pinpointing locations for high density housing and employment.

    With developers eager to build apartment blocks of up to 18-20 storeys in an area that previously hadn’t allowed much high rise, home-owners banded together to sell their homes and land blocks for up to four times what they might be worth as single houses on the current market.

    But the local council has quashed many of those great expectations with its draft The Hills Corridor Strategy which says the State vision was intended more as a high level strategic framework for planning, rather than a blueprint of what will happen.

    “It created significant development expectations within the community, some of which are unrealistic, and a lot of speculation,” said Michael Edgar, the council’s group manager of strategic planning. “This is the council’s take on how we can accommodate the State Government’s housing and employment targets.

    “Many of the expectations of high density apartments would prove difficult to adequately service with local roads, parks, playing fields and community facilities. Now we are trying to start a discussion with the community about what their future suburb will look like in terms of a living environment, its character and amenity.”

    The council’s overall proposal provides more homes than the State Government’s plan – 2491 additional homes in Castle Hill as against 1131 – but they’re spread out over a wider area, rather than having big blocks of higher towers.

    One local homeowner Glen – who asked for his surname to be withheld – says he’s devastated by the new draft. He, together with 14 of his neighbours, had their houses up for sale for an expected sum of over $4 million each on Olola Avenue, Castle Hill. His house is currently valued at around $1.2 million.

    “We’d been advertising and had received offers and were considering one,” said Glen, 33, the father of two children, aged three and three months.

    “But now, instead of eight to 10storeys on our properties, we’re being told we won’t be getting any at all, even though across the road there would be high rise.

    “The change for us is dramatic. I’m very disappointed but this is a draft and I’m hoping it won’t end this way. But now our lives are going to be on pause for an undetermined period of time.”

    Ray White agent Phil Kelly also blasted the draft plans, saying they were only released a few days before the meeting, and that they’d shocked the local community in how much they varied from the concept draft which had allowed a maximum height of 20 storeys in some cases.

    “We understand the new plan drastically reduces allowable density, reducing or eliminating entirely the financial viability of many planned projects,” he said. “From our perspective, the prospect of a backflip on the original plan seems wholly unfair for the buyers who have operated under the original premise provided by the council for the past nine months, as well as for those sellers who are yet to transact.

    “I think everyone’s still in shock. A lot of residents were expecting to receive significant sums of money and, at the 11th hour, that’s been taken away from them. We’re talking about big sums of money and these are real consequences. All bets are off in some cases today.”

    Over 200 locals with their homes on the market or who’d been planning to sell or hoping to finish negotiations in the next few days have all put their plans on hold.

    Deputy mayor Councillor Yvonne Keane said the plans were still a draft and, now they’d been put on exhibition for the next 28 days, the discussion should start about the future of the areaand how it should look.

    “There’s been so much speculation, we wanted to provide residents with some clarity about where the density is going to be,” she said.

    “It’s a very long process that will take a couple of years.

    “We want to plan very carefully to retain the essence of what makes The Hills Shire a beautiful place to live, work and play.”

    Many of those who’d been planning to sell up for a huge profit had said they were planning to buy something out of the Hills Shire for their retirement. Glen said he’d been planning to buy acreage elsewhere as, “I don’t want to live over the road from high riseand it’s getting too busy in Castle Hill.”

    Edgar said the new draft plans were about the community they’d be leaving behind.

    “I don’t blame the landowners because of course it would make a big difference to their lives and futures to get $4 million for their houses instead of $2 million,” he said.

    “But we’re taking a sensible look at how we can accommodate new people and keep the character and built form of the place we still want to be able to call home.”

  • Junior success across the board

    thumbnail

    Under 14 premier Newborough Reds. Under 12 premiers Leongatha.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Under 10 premiers Trafalgar.

    CGJFL

    THE glory was shared around on Central Gippsland Junior Football League grand final day, with all three cups bound for different trophy cabinets.

    Trafalgar secured the under 10 flag over Leongatha, but the Parrots turned the tide in the under 12s to take one back against the Bloods.

    Newborough Reds denied Leongatha, playing in its third final for the day, in the under 16 decider, 5.9 (39) to 3.3 (21), ensuring the spoils were split far and wide.

    CGJFL president Craig Skinner said the results were a testament to the strength of the competition.

    “As far as the league goes we couldn’t have been happier; we had three different sides win three different age groups,” he said.

    “We don’t always like to see the same side winning everything and it just goes to show how even the competition is at different age groups.”

    Skinner also lauded the attitude of the players and coaches, specifically the mutual respect shown at the conclusion of matches at Ted Summerton Reserve.

    “The two teams once they’d finished spent more time going to not their own teammates but the opposition because of the respect they’ve got for each other,” he said.

    “I think it goes well for our competition that the coaches all get along. I like that part of it. From my point of view as a president I like the way the coaches have taken control of our competition.”

    The CGJFL president also had a personal stake in proceedings, as coach of the winning Newborough Reds outfit.

    He said the club, which splits its talent evenly between its two junior sides in the top age bracket, was thrilled to win a premiership, but was not solely focused on results as indicators of success.

    “We don’t actually do all this for the premiership stuff, we’re all about developing the kids,” Skinner said.

    “Once we get to finals we really try to give them every chance to win it once they’re there.

    “Up until then we really try to give kids the same amount of opportunity in all parts of the ground, we don’t just go out to win every game by as much as we can, and that’s where the development comes from.”

  • YOUR SAY: Repeats of repeats means lots of news is bad news at the ABC

    thumbnail

    FIRSTLY you are woken by music that leaves you with a headache for the rest of the day.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The guest announcer of a Saturday morning cannot give a balance to the music played; he must continue to play music that jangles the nerves.

    Then you have news and news reviews every half hour, which is not too bad in the morning but it continues for the entire 24 hours, repeat after repeat.

    They are not satisfied with brainwashing with news on the radio, they have the news app, Channel 4 news 24 hours a day, then on the entertaining(?) Channel 1 they start with news and news reports from 6am till 9am, then news from noon till 1pm and news again from 5pm till 6pm. They start the night with news from 7pm till 8pm with another burst at 8.30pm.

    This does not leave much time for them to show the only programs they can afford after paying all the newsreaders and reporters. Repeats of repeats in the evening and then repeats of the repeats next day.

    Write to the head office of the ABC and they tell you, after a month’s delay in replying, this is what country people want.

    I have not been asked. Has anybody else in the Central West?

    TweetFacebookDefender Nigel Boogaard, who is the likely candidate to captain Newcastle this season, said the players had approved their new game-day apparel.

    ‘‘It’s back to the blue that I remember as a young bloke playing around here, which is great to see,’’ Boogaard said.

    ‘‘The white, I think everyone loves a white kit.

    ‘‘And the gold, I think the club will remember the days of glory in the past, so referring back to that gold is a bit of nostalgia for everyone.

    ‘‘It’s refreshing and obviously a new identity for the club moving forward.’’

    Eland said the signing of Inspirations Paint, along with the recent deal struck with Beechwood Homes to be major sponsors of Newcastle’s home shirts, was an indication that the Jets were regaining credibility in the eyes of corporate investors.

    In the past four campaigns, Tinkler effectively sponsored his own teams, first with the conceptual entity Hunter Ports and then with financially troubled Castle Quarry Products.

    ‘‘It’s another sign that the business community is getting right behind the restoration of our region’s club, and we certainly hope that this leads to more people getting behind the club as members as we move closer to this season,’’ Eland said.

    ‘‘To get a brand like Inspirations Paint behind the club is absolutely fantastic.

    ‘‘They are Australia’s largest and leading network of paint stores, founded here in 1979.

    ‘‘I think it’s a sign that the community are starting to re-align with their club.’’

    Inspirations Paint chief executive Robert Guy said the Jets were a perfect fit for a company that boasts 130 stores across Australia and sells one-sixth of all paint nationwide.

    ‘‘We wanted to support a football code that reaches Australians everywhere we have a store, from Newcastle to Nerang to Nunawading,’’ Guy said.

    ‘‘Regardless of Inspirations Paint’s national reach, our heritage lies with Newcastle.’’

    The 38threunion of Riverina Vietnam Veterans will be held in Wagga over the weekened of November 6-8.

    Chairman of the organising committee, David Gardiner, said it was expected 150 veterans plus partners would attend the reunion, to be held 50 years since ground troops landed in Vietnam and 40 years since all deployment ceased.

    “The reunion is considered the oldest continuous reunion of Vietnam veterans in Australia, having originated in Leeton 38 years ago,” Mr Gardiner said.

    “The reunion is held only in Riverina towns and attracts veterans from all over Australia.”

    Mr Gardiner said, so far, veterans from all states have expressed interest in attending the event.

    He said reunions were important in the lives of ex-service men and women.

  • Students are being slugged

    thumbnail

    BUNBURY students will no longer be able to split their time between TAFE and high school following changes to training arrangements being made by the department of education.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Currently students can attend school part time and complete Vocational Award training courses through the South West Institute of Technology.

    From next year, students will have to fund the courses themselves and be enrolled as full time TAFE students.

    Currently students who elect to split their time receive the TAFE training with a price capped at $410.

    Dalyellup College Principal Jeff Macnish said the change in rules was forcing students into full apprenticeships before they had time to finish high school and decide on the best career path.

    “It is already competitive and it is going to be difficult for students who can’t afford the TAFE fees,” Mr Macnish said.

    “My only option would be to do a broker deal with TAFE. If I had 10 kids who wanted to do a course, I would need to find money from the parents and my budget to fund the program.”

    Shadow Minister for the South West Mick Murraysaid we should not be ignoring the fact that country kids are half as likely to go onto TAFE as city kids.

    “You can’t pull resources out of regional education and training and then be surprised when the youth unemployment rate starts to creep up,” Mr Murray said.

    “Education and training drives the kind of innovation we need to build a strong, diverse South West economy.”

    Department of training and workforce development director general Dr Ruth Shean said the review into Vocational Education Training in schools was conducted this year and identified adjustments to the respective funding arrangement between the department of education and the department of training and workforce development.

    “Some of the responsibility for funding for VET in Schools students by the department of training and workforce development in 2015 will now be undertaken by the department of education,” Ms Shean said.

    The South West Institute of Technology is the primary provider for VET programs and managing director Duncan Anderson said students who choose to stay in high school would not be disadvantaged if they applied for TAFE when they graduate.

    “I continue to engage closely with all secondary schools in the South West to develop practical solutions to ensure students receive high quality, accredited training as part of their WACE requirements,” he said.

    Despite the change in rules Mr Anderson said he expected a high uptake of full-time TAFE students for 2016.

    Year 11 students already enrolled this year in Vocational Award courses will be allowed to continue their current training arrangements in 2016.

    Will these changes affect you or your children?

  • Archer backs his Bushrangers to spring a grand final upset

    thumbnail

    Nanjing Night Net

    THE Bathurst Bushrangers will need to produce their best football of the season tomorrow in the Central West AFL grand final at Bloomfield Oval if they are to prevent the Orange Tigers from making it three consecutive titles.

    With the 2015 head-to-head between the rivals reading 5-1 in favour of the Tigers, the Bushrangers are distinct underdogs for the season finale.

    But while the Bushrangers boast just the single 24-point win this season over the Tigers, it is enough to give them hope of springing an upset tomorrow.

    Bushrangers coach Brett Archer believes the grand final can be won if his side don’t become too reliant on their leadership group to carry the match.

    “In the past I’ve been involved in grand finals over a variety of sports and I know that in a grand final, anything can happen,” he said.

    “We’ve got to be at our best. We have our core leadership group of five to six players who always have good games, but we need those guys in the next tier to step up and play their best game.

    “Those are players like Bill Watterson, who has had brilliant games, and it’s got to the stage where we can rely on him week-in and week-out. Tom Markey is another one of those players, coming in from rugby league and with only two years of AFL experience, he’s been great for us.”

    The Tigers earned the hosting rights for this year’s decider ahead of the Bushrangers due to their 15-21-111 to 11-10-76 major semi-final win a fortnight ago.

    Yet that result doesn’t worry Archer. He knows that if his side can apply pressure throughout the four quarters, they have what it takes to better the Tigers.

    “I’m absolutely confident we can do it. We’ve been able to put the pressure on Orange on occasions, usually for one or two quarters of the game, but we need to be able to do it for the full match,” he said.

    “We’re starting to match it with them in the midfield. Josh Bubnich is a big talent and there’s other players they rotate through there to look out for as well. We’ve got Steve Grundy in the ruck and Sebastian Matheson and Harry Bowden able to rotate through there.”

    The Bushrangers will have a full strength line-up for the decider, with Jordan Longmore and Daniel Donato both coming back into the side.

    “The last time we played them we had some trouble in the forward line and we should have that sorted for this game,” Archer said.

    “We’ll have Jordan Longmore in at full forward, who has six goals in him. Considering we lost by six goals, I expect he could be the difference in making that gap up.”

    The vastly experienced Longmore was sorely missed by the Bushrangers in the major semi-final.

    His seven goals in the three-point defeat to the Tigers in the final round of the regular season was what kept the Bushrangers in the match.

    Archer said tomorrow’s grand final carries that extra bit of importance for both teams, being the last time they will compete before having their teams split up under next year’s new competition structure.

    “We’re trying to be sharp come game day so we’re able to make those passes under pressure. Orange’s game style hasn’t changed much compared to last year. They’ve got some new players in there but so do we,” he said.

    “It’s all coming towards an end of an era with us both splitting our teams up after this.”

    The opening bounce at Bloomfield Oval will be at 2.30pm tomorrow.

  • Three of the very best: Orange Tigers hunt history-making premiership

    thumbnail

    HUNTING: Dale Hunter, Tim Barry, Mick Rothnie and Simon Ewin are gunning for three consecutive grand final victories.AUSTRALIAN RULES
    Nanjing Night Net

    SINCE the club’s, and Central West AFL’s, inception in 1982, the Orange Tigers have never won three straight top grade titles.

    The Tigers have won two in a row thrice – 1991 and 1992, 1998 and 1999, and the current streak – but, arguably, 2015 is the black and golds’ best chance to claim a hat-trick, thanks largely to the current crop of players’ experience.

    Five of the current Tigers will be playing in their third straight grand final while another six will be playing in their second consecutive decider.

    Incredibly, three more have grand final experience prior to Saturday having played in 2013, while just 10 of the 24-man squad will play their first grade final with the Tigers.

    Talk about big-game veterans.

    Skipper Tim Barry, vice-captain Michael Rothnie, Dale Hunter, Simon Kay and Josh Bubnich are gunning for three straight, which would also signal three consecutive grand final wins over perennial heavyweights Bathurst.

    “It’s pretty important to us, we’re trying to make some club history,” Hunter said.

    “It does give us more motivation, especially being against the Bushrangers, we’ve played them in the last two as well so there’s good rivalry there,” Rothnie added.

    “I think Bushrangers have been in the last 10 grand finals … we pride ourselves on our grand final performances, and playing well when it counts,” Hunter said.

    “When I came here I hadn’t won one, so to come here and potentially win three straight is big, it’s huge for the club,” Barry said.

    “But for me, it’s more about the old boys in the club. They’ve seen the development in the club, and the hope come through, and seen us go from also-rans to title winners.

    “They’ve seen that improvement, and if everyone sticks with it I don’t see why the Tigers can’t keep winning them.”

    Simon Ewin is one of the six looking for his second straight title – he was an emergency in 2013 – and he said the experience in the squad, particularly the aforementioned quintet, puts the Tigers in good stead on Saturday.

    “Having their experience in the side helps us a lot,” Ewin explained.

    “It helps me a lot personally too. It’d mean a lot to everyone to get a third straight title.”

    The top grade game starts at 2.30pm, following the under 18, reserve grade and women’s deciders at Orange’s Country Club Oval this Saturday.
