Great weather helps make Engadine festival an outstanding success

Festival fun: The Engadine Street Festival last Sunday which attracted more than 15,000 people.ORGANISERS were overwhelmed by the community’s response to the Engadine Street Festival on Sunday, which attracted more than 15,000 people.
Nanjing Night Net

The festival was centred on the town square outside the community centre and along Old Princes Highway.

The free photo booth proved popular, along with the putt-putt golf, giant chess, face painting, stilt walkers, drumming workshops and parasol painting.

Symbio Wildlife Park brought along an owl, snake and lizards that were a hit with families.

Residents from Moran Health Care Engadine set up a high tea stall where children and adults were able to decorate their own cup cakes.

Food stalls provided samples of local cuisine and Engadine Rotary’s sausage sizzle did a thriving trade.

Musicians performed from two stages.

There were community performances from Engadine High School, Yarrawarrah Public School, Engadine Public School, Engadine Dance Academy and Engadine Music Centre with a drumming performance as the finale for the festival from percussion ensemble the Sylvanbeats.

Did you go to the festival? Tell us what you thought of the day.

3.5km oil leak on Golden Highway

The RFS is urging motorists using the Golden Highway eastbound to exercise extreme caution following an oil leak near the intersection with Dalswinton Road.
Nanjing Night Net

Muswellbrook’s Edinglassie Rural Fire Service brigade responded to a Triple 000 call shortly before 2pm on Wednesday afternoon.

RFS duty officer, John Cox, said firefighters are dealing with a 3.5km long hydraulic oil leak.

“Crews found an hydraulic oil slick from a heavy vehicle on the road surface near the intersection with Dalswinton Road.

“The materialtravelled for 3.5km up and over Ogilvies Hill in the direction of Jerrys Plains,” Mr Cox said.

Mr Cox said motorists should exercise caution as they approach the site.

“We can’t be certain exactly where the oil is from, but it could have leaked from a truck’s transmission or possibly the power take-off that operates a tipper,” he said.

The RFS is currently at the scene guiding traffic around the spill close to the centre of the eastbound lane.

Staff from Muswellbrook Shire Council arrived around 4pm to assist with the clean-up.

John Cox said the oil is spread thinly, but is thick enough to cause a vehicle to potentially lose control if it hits the material at speed.

The clean-up will involve covering the hydraulic oil with sand and sweeping it up.

“There is an environmentally-friendly product calledSpagsorb which can also be used.

“It sucks up the fluid and absorbs it,” Mr Cox said.

The Rural Fire Service said the stretch of Golden Highway is not closed at the present time (4.10pm), but motorists should slow down and be mindful of the safety of firefighters and council staff during the clean-up.

The RFS said a passing motorist noticed the spill and called Triple 000.

Crunch match for Robertson Spuds

Nanjing Night Net

THE Robertson Spuds face a must-win situation on Saturday.

The Spuds will take on the Picton Magpies in the Group 6 second division elimination final at Sid Sharpe Memorial Oval.

Saturday’s winner will progress to the semi-finals on August 29, while it’s season over for the losing team.

Robertson club president Doug Tilley said he expected a tough challenge from the Magpies.

“Picton is a relatively small and quick side, so it should make for a quick game,” he said.

“Picton has lost eight games by six points or less this season, and our two games against them have been close.

“We are evenly matched and Picton is a good side.”

The Spuds played their last home game of the regular season last Saturday.

Robertson recorded a 30-10 win over Bowral in a game described by Tilley as “horrible”.

Tilley said there were a lot of penalties awarded, which stalled the game’s momentum.

“There was penalty after penalty and no-one got a roll on,” he said.

“It was ugly, but it was good to get the win.

“Jesse Mauger, Jake Temporali and Matt Rolles were our best.”

Tilley said the Spuds needed to improve in a do-or-die match tomorrow.

He said his team needed to react quicker during the match and be prepared for anything against Picton.

“We’ve got the players to do it – we just need to give it a real crack.”

Young musicians string along with students from other schools

Photos: Steve Gosch PUBLIC school string ensemble students gained confidence and better playing ability by taking part in a joint workshop ahead of the City of Orange Eisteddfod.
Nanjing Night Net

The seminar was hosted at Calare Public School on Tuesday, with their beginner, intermediate and advanced instrument ensemble group, who’ve only come together for the first time this year, teaming up with Canbobolas Public and Orange Public children.

Calare string music teacher Andrew Baker conducted the workshop and a concert and said it was a particularly amazing day.

“It was specifically exciting for the Calare children as they’ve gone from absolute beginners to now playing in a string orchestra which is great,” Mr Baker said.

He said the purpose for the day was about preparing for the vocal and instrumental eisteddfod sections, but also meeting other students.

“They also gained experience of playing in large ensemble which usually doesn’t occur,” he added.

Calare principal Chris Cundy commended all the students on their progress and their performance in a joint concert for parents in the afternoon which included Mozart and Beethoven.

“It was absolutely delightful,” Mr Cundy said.

“I can’t get over how far the kids have come since they only started this year.”

Wimmera gas: dozens question high bills

Horsham’s Andrew Sostheim is one of numerous residents who have received a gas bill based on an estimated meter reading. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRIRELATED COVERAGE:Wimmera gas bills sky high because of estimated readings
Nanjing Night Net

DROVES of Wimmera residents are questioning their gas bills after being overcharged for estimated meter readings.

The Mail-Times reported on Tuesday Horsham residents had called provider Energy Australia after receiving bills up to 15 times higher than the same time last year.

Horsham’sJosie Pallot said she questioned her bill after she was charged $650, $550 more than her normal bill.

“I gotquite hysterical when I saw it. Irang them straight away and the operator explained they did an estimateread due to inclement weather,” she said.

“Because itwas raining, they wouldn’t send someone to read our meter.

“Igave the operator ameter read over the phone and it was fixed on the spot.”

The Energy Retail Code for Victoria stipulates that distribution networks must complete one actual metre read a year.

Mrs Pallot posted on Facebook about her experience, and found many of her friends had experienced the same issue.

She said she was concerned people –particularly the elderly –could be caught out and pay their bill without realising the mistake.

“I work with the older generation in my job, and I’ve told almost every client what happened to me so they can check their bills,” she said.

“When I put a post up I had a lot of people saying the same thing, or, ‘Now that you mention it, my bill was quite high’.

“It’s really disappointing we’re limited to one gas company in town.”

Fellow Horsham resident Caroline O’Donnell was floored when she received a gas bill from Energy Australia for $609, despite she and her family being away from home for eight weeks of the three-month billing period.

She called the company and had the bill reduced to $40.

“When we queried it, we were told that it had been an estimate,eventhough this is clearly not stated anywhere on the bill,” she said.

“There are three things that worry me about this.

“We haveeasy access to our meter, so why did they need an estimated reading?

“I alsodon’t understand the legalities of a made-up bill. It didn’t say anywhere on the bill that it was an estimate.

“Also, I think this is representative of some price gouging in regional areas, and I think we’re hit disproportionately hard here.

“It’s a slap in the face.”

Mrs O’Donnell said she might not have queried the bill had it not been quite a lot higher than the same time last year.

“I probably would have thought it didn’t sound right, but then you think ‘Well we’re a family of five, we’re busy, it must be right’,” she said.

“You assume the company has it correctbecause they have access to the data.

“A lot of people –particularly elderly people and pensioners –might not call about it, which is concerning.”

Australians in Retirement Wimmera branch chairmanLyall Wheaton said a number of members hadcomplained about the huge spike in gas charges.

“They contacted Energy Australia, who asked them to read the meter,” he said.

“As a result they received hundreds of dollars in refunds.”

Mr Wheaton said it was unconscionable the providersent out accounts hundreds of dollar dearer than the corresponding period in the previous year.

A Mail-Times Facebook post about the issuehad about 100 replies on Tuesday.

An Energy Australia spokesperson said meter readings weretaken by the distribution networks.

“They supply the meter reads to electricity retailers, who use the data provided to bill customers,” she said.

“Where a customer has been overcharged due to an incorrect meter read, an adjustment will be made to the customer’s account.

“We would always encourage a customer who has any queries regarding their account or bill to contact us to look into the matter.”

FOOTBALL: River Murray Football League round 18 preview

MYPOLONGA hosts MeningIe for the third clash between the sides this season as both teams battle it out for third position on the River Murray ladder.
Nanjing Night Net

As it stands, Mypolonga are a game clear in third, but with Meningie’s superior percentage a Bears’ win this weekend will see them leap the Tigers and be in the box seat for the double finals chance with just one match to go after this weekend’s round.

Both sides were beaten last weekend – the Bears in a tight match against league-leaders Mannum and the Tigers to fifth-placed Ramblers.

For the Bears, the good players in Liston, Fenton, Warmington, Mckay, Thorpe were good again as they are every single week so they’ll be looking for solid performances from all 21 players heading into finals.

Meningie will have their work cut out for them in this match as the Tigers have beaten the Bears in their two meetings this year – a 15-point win at home in round five and an impressive 52-point win at Meningie in round 12.

It’s a big game for both clubs – Meningie proved last season they can stand up on big occassions, winning important finals and taking out the premiership, while for the Tigers, it is now time they stand up in the games that matter most.

Adam Eckermann leads the Tigers midfield crew of Jed Wilson, Jake Altmann and Luke Kluske and they’ll have to be at their best against the deep rotations of the Bears. James Moss and Brad Martin are the two spearheads for Mypolonga who have the responsibility to kick the Tigers a winning margin while for the Bears, Brad Eagle is their main goal kicker, particularly in the absence of Josh Benbow in recent weeks.

Meningie were good in a loss last weekend in a match described as a finals-like contest, while Mypolonga would have been disappointed to drop their match against a side below them on the premiership table in Ramblers.

A fourth place finish for either side will mean they’ll meet the Roosters in an elimination final on the first Sunday of finals and Mypolonga does not have a good record against the Reds

Meningie looms more likely to stand up in an important match as they’ve developed a blue-print to success last season but the Tigers have had the upperhand against the Bears in 2015 and they rightfully start favourites for Saturday’s clash.

The Standard’s tip: Mypolonga.

IMPERIALS hosts Tailem Bend in what will be the Eagles last game of the season.

Tailem Bend have the bye in the last round and will not be playing finals while for Imperials, the next fortnight of football will be used as preperation for September action.

The Eagles will be hoping to go out on a good note in a season that has only seen the Eagles record one win – two less than the three they achieved last year.

At times the Eagles showed promise and were in matches for periods of time but have struggled to be competitive for four quarters.

Imperials, on the other hand, sit in second position on the ladder and still have a chance to go top with a 12-2 win-loss ratio after 14 matches.

The two sides have met twice already this season with the Blues winning the Leahy-Kneebone Cup match in round six by 55 points and then taking out their round 13 clash by 37 points.

On both occassions, Imperial forward have got on top of the under-sized Eagles defence – in the first match Tim Sumner, Luke Harrowfeild and Jamie Honner got four goals each and in the absence of the “Timmy and Jimmy Show” in the second meeting, Shaun O’Brien kciked six goals in his best performance of the season.

The Eagles defenders will again be up against it containing the Imperial spearheads.

Jarryd Linde has been moved back into defence for the Eagles to strengthen the back line, Bryce Jaensch provides good run from the back half but without a recognised ruckman, Jayke Hellmanns is forced from a centre-half-back posting and into the midfield.

The Blues come into this match off the bye so their midfield of Daniel Girdham, Zeb and Boyd Kenny, Gareth Williams and Henry Hodge should all be fresh and ready for a good hit out against Tailem Bend’s Dylan Hogarth, Brendon Moon, Josh Schilling and William Lipp.

Louis DeMichele is enjoying another soild season and has been important for the Blues since returning from injury.

Tailem Bend have nothing to lose and will put up a good fight but Imperials have proven to be too strong for the Eagles in 2015 and with finals on their mind, they won’t let the Eagles pinch a late season upset.

The Standard’s tip: Imperials.

MANNUM will travel to LeMessurier Oval on Saturday as the Roos looks to strengthen their position on the top of the River Murray ladder two weeks out of finals.

Both sides celebrated wins last week with the Roos winning a hard-fought against Meningie and the Roosters upsetting Mypolonga.

Mannum are on a five-match winning streak and for good reason; the Roos are a class act.

Jake Bowen starts them off, dominating ruck contests, Jarrod Kellock wins the ball with his relentless work rate and Chris Hall drives them forward with his experience and composure.

The Roos have a star backman who rarely gets beaten in Michael O’Malley, who provides solid leadership, they have a spearhead in Korey Loechel who is a proven goal kicker and they have role players all around the ground.

Mark Mueller has been a star for a long time and his experience and ball winning ability is still second to none, Corey Knight has been a good pick up from the Mallee and gets forward and kicks goals and Paul Addlington and Damien Williamson are star players.

Sturt league footballer Levi Krause has returned home to Mannum for the second half of the season and has been brilliant for the Roos and the younger up-and-comers in Josh Dodd and Tyson Schellen are solid footballers who make their mark on senior football.

It’s a solid spread of talented footballers that has seen the Roos shine this season and why Mannum are firming as premiership favourites.

In the other corner we have Ramblers, one of, if not, the youngest team in the league.

The Roosters have a local flavor and have promoted players from their junior program in to the league side and there are exciting times ahead for this club.

It’s been a building year for the Roosters who have experienced a lot of recent success and while the likes of Liam O’Neil and Jarrad Weyland are leading the club and playing good football, the club is in good hands going forward.

Stuart Green has been a good import to the club, Matthew Altmann returning from injury in the latter half has been pleasing as he finds form and the young brigade of Rooster have stood up this season.

Ben Dougall suited up for the Roosters as Sturt had the bye last weekend and the more football he plays for the Roosters, the stronger they will be.

Add another high-achieving local in Sam Pfeiffer who has been playing in the SANFL with the Crows for much of the year and there is plenty of talent that can filter back into the Roosters line-up.

Ramblers will go into this match as underdogs but generally provide a competitve brand of tough football and can take it up to the Roos.

However, the Roos are shining brighter than anyone in the competition and should not let this match slip.

The Standard’s tip: Mannum.

What do you see? The Gymea lily at Oyster Bay in 2012. Picture: Chris Lane

Another reader, Anthony Gribble, emailed us this week on a similar theme.

Mr Gribble sent us a photo of the back of a garden spade that he thinks resembles Australian comedian (Harry Van-Der Sluice) Roy ‘‘MO’’ Rene’s vaudeville character Mo McCackie during the 1930s Depression.

We’ll let readers be the judge (see photos at top of story):

(And here’s a video that tells you more about Mo McCackie, who the Australian MO awards were named after):

Mr Gribble (pictured) also found a shell on the beach with what looks like a face on it.

He said others can often see more in the ”subtleties of the alternative perspective and sometimes stimulate their imaginations”.

Anthony Gribble

He said others can often see more in the ”subtleties of the alternative perspective and sometimes stimulate their imaginations”.

Wikipedia reports that there is also a psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia ‘‘which involves a stimulus, image or sound, where the mind perceives a familiar pattern where none exists.

The shell ”face”.

‘‘Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the “man in the moon,’’ the “moon rabbit” and hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds,’’ the report said.

‘‘Pareidolia is the visual or auditory form of apophenia, which is the perception of patterns within random data. Combined with apophenia and hierophany (manifestation of the sacred), pareidolia may have helped ancient societies organise chaos and make the world intelligible.’’

People also sometimes see religious patterns such as the Jesus Toast (just as it sounds) or images in the Cone Nebula which some people say resemble the popular depiction of Jesus praying.
