The person was interviewed and charged by Burnie detectives on Wednesday.

Det.-Sgt Paul Bryan said the person had been charged with one count each of stealing, forging, uttering and entering false data.

The personwas given police bail to appear in court at a later date.

Bartletts partners Melanie Bartlett -a former North-West-basedmagistrate -and Chris Bartlettsaid the allegedly stolen money belonged to them.

BLUE FOR MND: Margaret Flagg with the Patches of Blue for MND exhibition, which opens in Wagga this week. Picture: Les SmithMargaret and John Flagg did not allow themselves much time to grieve after John’s diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in 2011.

They spent what time he had left making memories and reminiscing about their life together.

“It was emotional, as things are when you are issued a death sentence,” Mrs Flagg said.

“He was very strong, once he set everything he wanted to happen with the rest of his life, it was acceptance.

“Welaughed, we argued, we just continued on.”

Mr Flagg lived at home until Mrs Flagg could no longer care for him alone.

He spent 18 months in a nursing home before hedied in November, 2014.

Mrs Flagg watched her husband fight a brave battle for three-and-a-half years and she has spent her time since trying to help other families.

Sheand Judy-Ann Emberson are hosting Patches of Blue for MND, an exhibition of 69 patches of fabric, all featuring cornflour blue.

Mrs Flagg used to stitch with her husband so she wanted to continue the theme.

The exhibition opens September 23 at 6pm at the E3 Art Space at Wagga Art Gallery.

Attendees can pay $1 per vote for their favourite square and all money will be donated to MND research.

It will open daily from 10am to 3pm until the following Sunday.

IT’S A WRAP: The whole cast including leads, chorus and dance ensemble. Photo by Luke BryantWell it has certainly been a busy term for those involved in the Moree Secondary College’s musical production.

All the glitz and glamour has worn off, we now finally know what ‘fetch’ means and the students and staff are back to their regular routines.

Mean Girls: The Musical was a success, with two nearly sold-out performances last Thursday and Friday night.

There was great feedback from the audiences, who were very impressed with the local talent and they enjoyed the show immensely.

When asked about her overall thoughts of the production, from start to finish, Ms Elle Raine said, “I felt like it was the energy and excitement that was infectious, both onstage and backstage,and I’m incredibly proud of the students for their commitment to each other and the musical.”

Ms Cassie Turnbull also commented, “It was a fantastic experience to work with such an amazing group of students. I couldn’t be more proud of everyone involved and can’t wait until next year”.

The MSC crew would like to thank everyone who supported our endeavour, including the students who participated, the staff who gave up their time to help and the community, who supported us by coming to the show.

Without all of these people, the show would not have been the success that it was. This public thank you is also tinged with a little sadness, particularly from the cast and crew, as it’s all done and dusted.

Until next year, that is. Again, another massive thanks from all of us at MSC to all of you and enjoy some of these behind the scenes footage.

Mean Girls was based on the 2004 comedy, followingRosalind Wiseman’s non-fiction self-help bookQueen Bees and Wannabes, illustrating femalehigh schoolsocialcliquesand the damaging effects they can have on girls.

SAFEGUARDING THE FUTURE: Jo Menken is fighting for the future of her eight-year-old daughter Cameron. Photo: David Blake Photographer

Former Gunnedah woman Jo Menken is learning to love her new body shape after getting breast implants following a double mastectomy.

The 34-year-old carries thedefectiveBRCA2 gene, an identified fault or mutationwhich is commonly linked to an increased risk ofbreast or ovarian cancer, or both.

Jo inherited the gene from her mother, along with two of her sisters.BRCA gene mutations are genetic and if either one of the parents carry thegene, their child has a 50 per centchance of inheriting the mutation.

Those with the gene have up to a65 percent risk ofdeveloping breast cancer, andup to 45 per centrisk of developing ovarian cancer, according to preventative health organisationPink Hope.

To safeguard her future, Jo had a double mastectomy in April, andexpanders were inserted in preparation for breast implants on September 1. Shesaid the surgery went well and she was only in hospital over night.

“It was like a breeze compared to [the double mastectomy];the pain.I think I was off the meds after three days,” Jo said.

Despite the success of the operation,she said she experienced “post-surgery blues”.

“I thought I knew what to expect but it was just difficult,” she said.

Jo said she had been apprehensive beforethe surgery because she “hadn’t had time to mentally prepare”.

“About a week out it kind of dawned on me that I might not handle the outcome,” she said.

“Last time it was something temporary, and this time it’s permanent. It was like, ‘I’mgoing to have to live with this and love how I look’.

“Even though I didn’t do it for aesthetic reasons, it’s stillsomething you have to get used to, a whole new body shape.”

The young mum returned to work a week after the surgery and said three weeks on, she wasfeeling a lot better.

“I sort of just jumped straight back into it,” she said.

“I think getting back into it is good for your mindset.

“You’re doing something. Your mind’s active.”

Jo is throwing her energy into final preparations for her Breast Wishes Ball, a celebration of the end of her journey and an opportunity to raise funds forPink Hope.

The ball will be held on October 8in Brisbane and will feature an auction, ambassadors Bronte and Cate Campbell, ex-Wallabies captain Nathan Sharpe, rugby union player Saia Faingaa,entertainment, andguest speaker Doctor Matthew Peters.

Amidst the glitter of the celebratory event, Jo holds to a solid purpose –to prevent her eight-year-old daughter, Cameron, from having to make the same tough decisions about her body.

Jo sums it up in a post she wrote to Cameron on herBreast Wishes JOurney Facebook page -‘I hope by the time you’re old enough to understand this, breast and ovarian cancer is as easily defeated as the common cold.I hope that you’ll see the reasons behind my efforts on my breast wishes journey project and be as proud to call me your Mum, as I am to call you my daughter.’

Outstanding partnership: The reunion will acknowledge and celebrate Tableland Veterinary Service’s Dr Bill Tranter and Dr Ian Hosie working together as business partners for 40 years.Close to 50 veterinarians from Australia and New Zealand will meet totoast several remarkable milestones being celebrated by Tableland Veterinary Service (TVS) fromSeptember 30 to October 2.

One of Australia’s largest and oldest privately owned veterinary clinics, TVS services a large area of Northern Queensland from the Atherton Tablelands to Weipa in the North, to Charters Towers in the South, west to the gulf and east to the coast.

It will be almost 40 years since the establishment of the TVS partnership when the reunion takes place.

The reunion will also acknowledgeDr Bill Tranter and Dr Ian Hosie working together as business partners for an 40 years, a relationship thatcommencedon Christmas Eve, 1976.

This year also marks 65 years of continuous private veterinary service in Malanda and on the Tablelands.

The weekend will acknowledge the vets and staff who have contributed to the immense success of TVS which has flourished and become the home of both world class vets and facilities.

However it is the influence that the partnership of Dr Tranter and Dr Hosie has had on hundreds of veterinary students , veterinary employees and many non-veterinary staff that is the most important and unique achievement of TVS.

“So many of the vets we’ve worked with at TVS have become lifelong friends,”Dr Tranter said.

The Tableland Veterinary Service directors Tamara Olley-Dredge, Bill Tranter and Mick Ruppin.

“Many are returning to Malanda to help celebrate our 40 year anniversary, relive past experiences and simply share a weekend together,” he said.

“The significant achievementhas been managing to recruit many wonderfully loyal and talented vets, nurses and support staff over the years and have them work co-operatively together providing a high standard of animal health care in our region.

The weekend’s highlights will include – Friday night (The Laying of the Dust), Saturday (Chewing the Cud), Saturday night (Celebration of the Years) and a recovery breakfast (Recovery Nose Bag) on Sunday morning.

The speakers at Saturday’s seminar ‘Chewing the Cud’ will consist entirelyofformer TVS veterinarians , andSaturday night’s ‘Celebration of the Years’ dinnerwill include speakers for each decade TVS has operated.

The practice is also involved with veterinary student teaching through a collaborative arrangement with James Cook University, with hundreds of veterinary students having undertaken part of their veterinary training within the practice since 2010.

“Over 30 new graduates have begun their careers at TVS and for many others it was their early years following graduation,” Dr Tranter said.

“To witness young vets start out very tentatively – be provided with the same opportunities that others gave us – gain confidence day by day and grow professionally to achieve great things has been one of our greatest joys,” he said.

“In truth, most have given back far more than we were ever able to give them. Our hope would be that positive experiences in a well-supported workplace have provided a positive influence for many of these young vets to pursue confident, successful careers in a wide variety of fields.”

LEGEND: Former Mortlake and Hampden interleague footballer Jim Bell, pictured when he was inducted into the league Hall of Fame in 2013.

THERE is no doubting just how much the honour of being a recognised legend of the Hampden league means to Jim Bell.

The 73-year-old was elevated to legend status at Wednesday’sHampden Football Netball League Hall of Fame and life members night.

He became just the third person to be bestowed with the honour, joining Wayne Reicha and Kevin Leske.

“It’s just completely overwhelming,” he said.

“I really was taken aback when I was nominated into the Hall of Fame, but then to be made a legend of the league (was something else).”

Bell’s daughter Adrienne accepted the honour on behalf of her father, who was away at Alexandra.

The midfielderplayed 213 senior games for Mortlake and represented Hampden at interleague level six times.

He was best on ground in the 1966 interleague premiership win over Ovens and Murray Valley at Wangaratta, playing in front of a crowd of 12,000 in what he described as the highlight of his playing career.

His elevation to legendwas timely, with this week marking 50 years since Bell claimed the HFL Maskell Cup and with North Warrnambool Eagles –co-coached by his nephewGraeme Twaddle – set to make its first appearance in a Hampden senior football grand final.

Bell, who was extensively involved with club and league administrationafter his career,was instrumental in bringingNorthern Districtsacross to the major leagueand was also a big driver of the Terang and Mortlake merger.

Jim Bell won the 1966 Maskell Cup.

He was part of the HFNL independent executive from 1990-97and said he was also pleased to see the expansion of the netball competition.

“When I came onto the executive there were just two grades. By the time I got off, we had about five grades,” he said.

“I think without netball, football would be really struggling.”

Bell thanked all those who had supported him through his playing and administrative days, particularly his late parents Bill and Winnie, his wife Ann and his first coach Bill McMaster.

HAYRUNNERS: Headlining artist Sami Cooke will perform on the night, taking time out from her own busy touring schedule for a good cause.

SATURDAY nights are hot property in the entertainment world, yet a group of local artists and touring singer Sami Cooke are giving them up to raise money for a worthy cause.

“It really restores your faith in humanity,” she said.

“100 per cent of the profits go to the Hay Runners and it all helps with diesel for the trucks.

Miss Cooke is currently on tour and she and her team areputting on the concerts in what would usually be their well earned downtime.

“Even the people who are travelling around and helping us with sound are volunteering their time –I guess we all just really believe in the cause,” she said.

Miss Cooke said helping the hayrunnerswas somethingshe and her mother Janelle had immediately wanted to get behind.

“My mum called Brendan and asked if he wouldn’t mind if we did something and he was stoked,” she said.

“It’s such an important Australian cause, we have such great Aussie farmers and we are very proud that we still have so many supplies coming from them.

“For myself personally going on tours through the outback I’ve heard stories of farmers who have had to sell their fifth generation farms –it is heartbreaking and with all this rain we have had lately people don’t think they still need our help, but they do.

The GriffithBurrumbuttock Hay Runners drought relief concert will be held at the Griffith Leagues Club Saturday, September 24 from 7pm.

Tickets are $20with local artists Tony L, Living in Paradise, Painted Desert Duo and Hidden Temple all performing.Miss Cooke said organisers tried to gather a range of different performers to ensure there was a genre for everyone to enjoy on the night.

LUCKY ESCAPE: Lachlan Smith, 24, had a lucky escape after he accidentally rode his motorbike into a 12-metre deep mine shaft at Sunny Corner. Photos: CHRIS RYAN 092116bike11SAFETY standards are adequate at the Sunny Corner Trail Bike Ride, despite a rider falling into a 12-metre-deep mine shaft.

HELP: Mine shaft rescue.

The annual event attracts participants from across the state, and a record 1400 riders took part on the weekend.

During the two 70 kilometre loops that riders takethroughSunny Corner State Forest, 24-year-old Sydney man Lachlan Smithveered off course and tumbled down the mine shaft along with his bike just before 10am on Saturday.

Central Tablelands Motorcycle Club runs the event, and president Paul Seymour said the safety of all riders is vital to the organising committee.

In the ride’s 30 year historyhe said an incident of this typehadnever occurred before.

“He [the rider]veered off the marked track a bit so that’s why he went down,” Mr Seymour said.

Mr Seymour said all riders receive a safety briefing prior to the two-day event and are instructedto follow the course’sdirectional markers.

“It’s marked very well throughout the forest, there’scheck points and everyone [each rider] is electronically logged in and out,” he said.

Mr Seymour said the event committee has since met todiscussthe incident and hasconcluded that current safety provisions are adequate.

Ambulance Service of NSW Inspector Rhys Dive said Mr Smith was extremely lucky not to have been seriously injured or killed.

A paramedic was winched into the shaft to assess Mr Smith before the pair were lifted out by rescuers.

“Our worst fear was the bike had pinned him underneath,” he said.

“He had a helmet and gloves and all the protective gear and that’s saved him from a lot of injuries.”

Mr Smith injured his wrist and hip and after a medical assessment was not transported to hospital.
