Lights still on for police over Christmas

On-call: Tasmania Police Burnie CIB Inspector Adrian Shadbolt has urged drivers to stay safe during the Christmas period. Picture: Brodie Weeding
Nanjing Night Net

As families sit down to share a meal on Christmas day, Tasmania Police officers will remain on high alert to prevent the day taking on a devastating meaning.

Burnie-based Inspector Adrian Shadbolt said his Christmas gift would be to protectthe community from the sadness of another road fatality.

He said while police always hope Christmas day will be quiet, no-one should hesitate from giving them a call.

“You’d like to think Christmas day would be quieter but that’s not a word I use lightly and unfortunately things happen,” Inspector Shadbolt said.

“We have a responsibility to remain available to the community.”

Inspector Shadbolt said officers working on Christmas day would hold a small celebration at the station.

He said the holiday period can be a difficult time for officers.

“I think it can be challenging for a police officer at this time of year,” Inspector Shadbolt said.

“Christmas is a family time and the officers who are working are expected to be available and respond.”

Tasmania Police will launch Operation Crossroads on December 22.

The campaign will target the ‘fatal five’ factors that commonly play a role in car crashes.

Inspector Shadbolt said it was essential people considered their transport during the festive season.

He said road fatalities were profoundly devastatingat any time of year, however, the meaning of Christmas day should not be ruined.

“How would you feelat Christmas time if that date actually marked a horrific event?” Inspector Shadbolt said.

“Sadly, there are some members of the community that willbe going through that experience this Christmas and I feel very sad for those families.”

Inspector Shadbolt said most Tasmanians had been touched by road death, however,road safety remained a big issue.

He said officers were deeply impacted by call-outs to fatal crashes.

“You don’t want to keep bringing it up all time but the reality is road trauma is always there and the impact of it is just huge,” Inspector Shadbolt said.

“It’sjust tragic, you know, I couldn’t emphasise enough how horrible it is.”

Inspector Shadbolt said officershad been conducting more breathalyser and random drug tests than ever before.

He urged drivers to be hyper-vigilant about speed, inattention, alcohol and drug intake, seatbelt safety and fatigue.

“Christmas shouldn’tbe a time of remembrance,” Inspector Shadbolt said.

“I hope that people can appreciate the safety of attendees must take preference above everything else. The decision topostponethe festival was not made lightly. It was after consultation with Cowra Council and the Cowra Business Chamber.”

Taste weekend coming up again

Fun: Kate Sadler, Hayley Walker, George Hood, Jess Edwards, Danielle Amos, Alex Neale, Stacey Day and Georgie Shortt enjoy the 2016 Taste.Naracoorte’s “Taste the Limestone Coast Festival” will be up against some strong competition next February, with a major music festival being held in Mount Gambier on the Saturday festival day!
Nanjing Night Net

However, the Naracoorte Lions organising committee believes that “Taste 2017” has a great deal to offer patrons and at far less expense than the Mount Gambier event. Entry for Taste remain the same at $10 per adult, with less for youth and concessions, against around $100 for the other event.

Local Taste patrons will still receive almost eight hours of music and the chance to try food and wines from around 25 different outlets, while relaxing in the shaded lawn areas of the Naracoorte Town Squares!

The other components of the extensive Taste Festival are all in place, so starting with the Travel Expo on Thursday February 9, through to the race meeting on Sunday February 12, all of the favourite activities will again be on offer!

As in previous festivals, Lions try to celebrate the high quality of local produce as well as bringing in new tastes to the region.This year, three new providers will join the Taste family: Oparina Wines from Padthaway, The Cide Project from Kalangadoo and Coffin Bay Oyster Events from the West Coast of SA.

Negotiations are still underway with a few more specialist food providers, so there may be more to announce in the near future! A list of all providers, sponsors, supporters, and entertainers will be published early in the New Year.

Taste will be once again supported by a major Taste Travel Raffle, this time sponsored by helloWorld Travel and the Spirit of Tasmania. First prize will be a trip on the magnificent “Spirit of Tasmania” from Port Melbourne to Devonport and accommodation in Tasmania .

Lions hope to continue to make this a family friendly festival, so as well as the regular children’s tent for the younger children, this year there will be a travelling magician who will move around the festival area providing entertainment for young and old!

Taste Festival profits will be donated to the Naracoorte Hospital Maternity Unit and other community projects.

Families top sale trends

Clockwise: Top sales of 2016 included “Ferndale”, Cootamundra; “Durham Court”, Manilla; “Glen Alice”, Capertee Valley; and “Kincora”, Gundagai. THE bulk of the sales activity in 2016 was been between established family farming interests – predominantly between vendors retiring, downsizing or changing tack, and buyers (usually from the same district) seizing expansion opportunities.
Nanjing Night Net

Several significant sales this year were re-offerings of properties previously listed without result several years ago.

A shortage of listings, coupled with a general lift in farm profitability and a pervading mood of confidence in agribusiness as an investment, forced buyers to revise their thinking about values.

Improved grazing country in the safer rainfall areas, which for several years past has been trading in a range of $1000 to $1500 an acre, is now fetching anywhere from $1500-$2500/ac, and in ultra-favoured areas, more than $4000/ac.

This has pushed up sheep area values on the Slopes and Tablelands from the low $300s a DSE to around $400/DSE, and cattle country values in favoured breeding areas to as much as $8000/cow area.

In the Western Division, according to David Russell of Landmark Russell, Cobar, some properties sold this year have doubled in value in five years.

Apart from the seasonal factor, and improved markets for wool, sheep and cattle, he said demand had been boosted by record prices for goats, and by graziers seeking more country to offset land they had locked up for carbon credits.

While demand is outpacing supply for neighbour-to-neighbour farms and corporate-size holdings, there remains a “slow spot” in the market, according to agent Chris Meares of Meares and Associates.He said properties valued at anywhere up to $5m were being snapped up generally by established farmers, and properties or aggregations above $10m attracted corporate or institutional interest.

“It’s the properties in between that can be difficult to sell, being too big for the farm-build-up buyer and too small for the corporates,” he said.

“With grazing properties, the corporate and institutional investors ideally want a spread that will carry 2000 cows or 30,000DSE.”

A recent example of the strength of demand at the other end of the scale was the offering by Meares and Associates earlier this month of“Mirrabooka”, a 238ha grazing property near Taralga.

Of the 20 prospective buyers who inspected the property, 10 were established property owners (mostly local) and 10 were city-based investors. The property sold for$1.4m which was $250,000 above the reserve.

City buyers are also showing renewed interest in lifestyle farms, according to David Nolan of Webster Nolan Real Estate, who said this market segment had “gone off the boil” for several years amid negative vibes coming out of the country.

Drug supply chain busted with pleas

A CANNABIS supply chain involving a man buying the prohibited drug atYass and on-selling it in Wagga and Forbes has been busted with the central figure pleading guilty to three chargescovering multiple offences.
Nanjing Night Net

Louis Foster, 22, lodged his pleas in Wagga Local Court this week and will be sentenced in the District Court early next year.

Foster admitted peddling cannabis worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in over several months until his arrest in March.

Police last December began a special operation called Strike Force Jokic to get evidence ofFoster’s suspected drug activities.

They monitored drug transactions throughout the first two months of the year until his arrest on March 4.

Through covert surveillance they established Fosterbought cannabis in nine kilogram parcels at Yass and distributed it through a network of drug runners.

Some cannabis was sold in Forbes for up to $10,750 for 1.3kg a time, but Foster also sold smaller amounts of the drug in Wagga shopping centres and other public places.

Foster pleaded guilty to one count of supplying a prohibited drug greater than the commercial quantity and one count of supplying cannabis greater than the indictable quantity but less than the commercial quantity.

He also admitted to a charge of supplying the drug ice greater than the indictable quantity.

In relation to that charge, it is alleged Foster planned to buy cocaine, but was given 28 grams of ice by error.

It is alleged Fosterthen arranged to give the ice back to his supplier in exchange for cocaine.

Foster is on bail while waiting sentence.

After accepting Foster’s pleas, magistrate Erin Kennedy ordered a pre-sentence report to help the District Court judge frame a sentence.

The case is listed for sentence at the sittings beginning February 27.

Earlier this year, Foster pleaded guilty to driving with an illegal drug in his bloodstream.

He was stopped by Highway and Traffic police on January 28.

Two other people in the network have been dealt with by the courts.

When the gift has fur

Every Christmas I get asked the same question, “How are you going to cope with all the unwanted animals as gifts being surrendered to the shelter?”
Nanjing Night Net

WRAP IT UP: If you want to give a pet, consider an RSPCA ACT voucher so your loved one can choose a furry friend themselves, such as sweet Swan, who is available for adoption now.

There’s a longstanding belief that pets that aren’t chosen specifically by their new owners (iegiven as gifts) are less valued than those that are.

Based on our experience at the shelter, I would completely disagree with this belief.

Furthermore, there have been multiple studies around the world that have shown that the amount of love and care that a person gives to a pet is not directly correlated to either the method for how the animal came into their lives or the amount of money they spent on it.

Some studies actually suggest that a ‘double bond’can be obtained when a pet is given as a present with the second bond related to the personal emotions attached to the gift giver.

While the shelter is indeed full and the number of animals in care will continue to increase over the holiday season, very few are coming in as unwanted gifts.

So, we are actively suggesting that pets can be great Christmas gifts if the giver keeps a few things in mind:

It’s important that the receiver has already expressed a strong desire for a pet.Ensure that they have the ability to be a responsible pet owner for not only that species and breed, but also for the animal’s individual needs.There’s no sense in getting them a high energy working dog if they live in a tiny apartment and work 50 hours a week.If they have other pets, it’s important that the animals meet before adopting a new family member. Animal personalities range just like humans which mean that some animals just won’t get along.We recommend buying them a gift voucher at RSPCA ACT to adopt a pet rather than purchasing an animal on their behalf. This allows them to find a companion that they will form a lifelong bond with.Remember: it’s okay to give them a pet as a gift – but not as a surprise.

You can visit our adoption website (梧桐夜网adoptapet南京夜网419论坛) to see what type of animals we have available.

Tammy Ven Dange is the CEO of RSPCA ACT. Continue reading »

At-risk Tassie teens ‘targets’

At-risk Tasmanian teenagers are engaging in concerning behaviours and being “targeted”by predatory older people, a Launceston service says.
Nanjing Night Net

Launceston Young Women’s Service Karinya wrote young teenagers were falling through the cracks and enteringrisky situations in the Shelter Tasmania Annual Report 2016.

The service provides crisis accommodation to young women aged between 13 and 20.

A Karinya spokesperson said young women who did not have access to ongoing support orincome, particularly those aged under 16, frequently felt forced to couch surfin inappropriate environments andparticipated in low level criminal activity to attain money.

“[They] become beholden to inappropriate people who offer to ‘help’ them,” the Karinya spokesperson said.

“They also can become the targets for organised petty crime groups who recruit them to become involved in return for somewhere to stay, and food,” they said.

Theysaid younger females seeking stability also entered into relationships with older males.

“None of these situations are okay and all put them at risk, from others and from themselves via the inappropriate and misinformed choices they sometimes make,” they said.

Karinya in the annual report wroteteenagers aged between 13 and 15 were “not seen as a priority for Child Protection but are also not eligible for support from other support services”.

Launceston non-for-profitYouth Futures, which provides services including crisis accommodation for young men,wrote in Shelter Tasmania’s report that the service’s clients dealt with low levels of literacy.

“This year we have experienced greater levels of unpredictable behaviours, paranoia and depression,” Youth Futures reported.

Shelter Tasmania executive officer Pattie Chugg said there was “not enough emergency accommodation” for vulnerable Tasmanian teenagers.

“This is a crucial issue …children in this age group are not adequately protected as the system is currently designed,” Ms Chugg said.

Human Services Minister Jacquie Petrusma said the state government was developing a strategy for at-risk youths which would be completed in 2017. She said the strategy wouldlook at youth struggling with issues including homelessness, mental health and drug and alcohol issues.
