ANOTHER group of graduates from Leeton High School have spent their final days in the classroom this week.

Unlike tradespeople and other professionals, those who work in schools are never privileged to see the end result or “finished product”of any student that passes through theschool.

While LHSwe can part confidently knowing itmay have adhered to the mission and ‘”educationyou for active and responsible citizenship”, it is now up to you to shape the future for yourselves, your loved ones and for the rest of the world.

Be true to yourselves, look after your families, be generous of spirit, stand up to injustice and work hard to ensure that your lives matter and that you make the world a better place for those who follow you.

We hope that our graduating year 12 students savour this day and we wish them good luck with their upcoming HSC exams.

Western Boys take on FIRLA

PREMIERSHIP winning Forbes forwards Zac Merritt, Jake Grace and Ben Maguire and Mudgee brute Hamish Bryant headline a bumper Western squad named to take on Italy next month.

The Magpies trio and the Dragons’newly crowned Dave Scott Medallist have been named in Darren Jackson’s 21-strong squad preparing to tackle the Azzurri at Bathurst’sCarrington Park on October 15.

After barnstorming performances leading their respective sides to Group 10 and Group 11 premiership glory, the quartet will slide straight into Jackson’s representative outfit as heprepares for a second and more successful tilt at the country championships in 2017.

Jackson was frothing at the thought of an “in-form and fit” Western side tackling Italy, a team likely to be made up of players with Italian heritage currently playing inthe NSW and Queensland Cups vying for spots in the Azzurri’s squad for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

“It’s an opportunity for a number of players to be looked at, at this level,” Jackson said, he and his selectors naming 14 new faces in the Western fold.

Jackson is aided at the selection table by former Lithgow, Group 10, Western and NSW Country prop Kip Maranda, Group 11 president Derrick Hoe, and Castlereagh Cup representative Shaun Hooper.

“We’ve named a lot of new faces, and the benefit is most of those guys have been playing in finals footy, if not grand finals for their clubs,” Jackson continued.

“Each competition was close this season, which is great for clubs and the Rams. Hopefully we can unearth some exciting new talent.”

For the Castlereagh Cup competition, four players – Brad James, Kurt Gudgeon, Jeremy Thurston and Jarrah McCready–have been named in Jackson’s squad.

Orange CYMS guns Mitch Davis, Simon Osborne and Dom Maley are also in the outfit, while Narromine and Group 11 skipper Luke Thompson has also made the cut, indicating Jackson’s desire to pick a monster pack to take on Italy.

Only one Dubbo player, Macquarie’s hooker Jeremy Smith, was included the side, although Jackson confirmedthe October 15 clash coincides with Dubbo CYMS’ end of season trip.

The Rams have also named strong under-21 and under-16 sides for the day, with both set to take on the Federation Italian Rugby League Australia sides as curtain raisers to the main event.

Lithgow’s Ben Inzitari is part of FIRLA’s under-16 squad.

Jackson’s first grade side will train twice in the lead-up to the clash, both times at Manildra’s Jack Huxley Oval, on September 24 and October 8.

Tax plan taking a toll

Growing Concerns: Owner of local citrus company Sumar Produce, Sue Brighenti, believes backpacker tax would be greatly detrimental to the local industry. Picture: Liam WarrenRIVERINA growers have expressed some concern if the government holds firm on the controversial backpacker tax.

Originally slated to begin on July 1, the backpacker tax will ditchthe $18,200 tax-free threshold for foreign workers under 30 and instead tax them 32.5¢from the first dollar they earn in Australia.

Local farmers have been in limbo since the $500 million savings measure was announced during the federal election campaign and promptly shelved pending a review.

Riverina WineGrapesMarketingBoard CEO Brian Simpson claimed the backpacker tax “couldreally delay harvest period”.

“Fewerworkers to bring the crop in when the grapes aremature might meanwineries will have toslow harvest down,” Mr Simpson said.

“A prolonged harvest means reduced yields, grapes start to shrivel onvines,which has a bigimpact on quality.

“They’ll have to pay more to entice local labour and we’re hoping they can move that extra cost on to the consumer, but that’s difficult to do.”

Owner of family-run citrus producerSumar Produce, Sue Brighenti, believes that the backpacker tax is already having an affect.

“Backpackers plan their trips well in advance so therehave already been drops in the amount of them around,” she said.

“We have already lost about 1000 mandarins due to labour being hard to find and the fruit becoming overripe before we could pick it.

“If you put a tax on them they will not come to Australia and instead head over to other countries such as New Zealand.

“Our use of backpackers are mainly in the packing sheds as most of our workers arefrom Europe and are quite good with computers.

“At the moment Ihave about 30 people working in the packing sheds and I believe that only one of those isAustralian.”

Mrs Brighenti would rather that the government open up the laws when it comes to backpackers rather than make it more difficult.

“I agree that they should have to pay some tax,” she said.

“We tried to reach a compromise where they would only pay 19.5 per cent on the dollar rather than the 33.3 per cent that was proposedand get rid of the tax-free threshhold.”

Representing the people: the MidCoast Council Local Representative Committee consists of 12 former councillors from the three amalgamated councils. Photo: supplied.“The zebra crossings in the main street are a bloody disgrace,” LRC member and former Great Lakes mayor Jan McWilliams said at the MidCoast CouncilLocal Representative Committee (LRC) drop in session at Wingham on September 21 at Wingham Town Hall.

The Wingham Memorial Pool was also a topic for discussion with Wingham Advancement Group members statingthey are frustrated by not ever receiving a definitive answer as to whether the pool will remain operating.

The meet and greet was part of a series of sessions provided around the region for community members to meet their LRC members, and for the LRC members to take community concerns directly back to MidCoast Council administrator John Turner.

Less than 30 people attended,including LRC members Jan McWilliams, former Gloucester councillor Frank Hooke, andformer Greater Taree City Council councillors Trent Jennison,Robyn Jenkins, David West, and Kathryn Bell.

Chairperson of the LRC, Jan McWilliams started the meeting by saying they were “dead serious about getting things done”.

Former GTCC councillor Peter Epov posed a number of questions to the LRC regarding the way they were elected,whether the LRC was constituted by resolution and how the LRC members were put in place.

He also expressed his concerns a number of timesthat while the former GTCC area is the more highly populated of the three former local government areas, there were lessformer GTCC councillors elected to the LRC than there were former Great Lakes councillors.

Jan McWilliams replied that the State government appointed the LRC members, and that every councillor from the three former LGAs wasinvited to apply prior to the committee being put in place.

Mr Turner’s previous involvement in mining companies was questioned and whether his pro-mining stance would come into play regarding mining leases.

Jan McWilliams answered that as mining is a State government issue, Mr Turner hadnothing to do with it, and that he resigned his position on those committees when he became the MidCoast Council administrator.

A couple of people expressed concerns about the state of the roads, and in particular the visibility of zebra crossings in Wingham’s CBD.

The LRC members urged everybody present to put their concerns in writing on forms provided for them to take back directly to Mr Turner. These forms are also available on the Midcoast Council website.

LRC and community members alike agreed that the amalgamation process was “in chaos”.

The LRC pleaded for everyone to “be patient” and that the preparation of a management plan for the incoming council is taking place.

The next LRC community meeting to be held in Winghamwill be at 6pm on Thursday, October 20. More information will be released closer to the date.
