THE recent Southern Highlands Showjumping Championship received strong support from major local breeders.

Think Big Stud of Burradoo was a major sponsor for the featured puissance event.

Briddon Park Thoroughbreds and Carrington Park Stud also sponsored classes, along with industry professionals Nick Hill from Global Sport Horses and Anthony Warren.

The “Think Big how high can you go” puissance was a crowd pleaser, attracting the some of Australia’s top showjumpers.

Four world cup competitors made the trip to Robertson for the event.

Two riders, Moss Vale’s James Arkins and Clint Beresford of Canberra, successfully cleared 1.75m and attempted 1.85m in damp, foggy conditions.

The puissance event had not been held in NSW in close to a decade.

The inaugural Highlands showjumping championships were held in support of Life After Racing.

The organisation aims to increase the popularity of the thoroughbred breed after retiring from horse racing.

Life After Racing has plans to take the event mobile on a grand scale.

Life After Racing prize money is being rolled out across the state.

This gives riders an extra incentive to purchase, train and compete the thoroughbred horse.

As a result of the competition at Robertson, plans are in place to hold competitions in both Queensland and the ACT.

Life After Racing thanks the many event sponsors, along with event manager Casey Noble and the numerous volunteers who all made it happen.

苏州美甲美睫培训学校

The Breast Cancer Network Australia’s (BCNA) annual Pink Sports Day will be held on the Mother’s Day weekend.

Pink Sports Day will be held on May 9 and 10.

It is an opportunity for sporting groups and their communities to come together and show support for people in their local area who have been affected by breast cancer.

All sporting leagues, associations and clubs are encouraged to get involved and help raise awareness and funds for BCNA.

Last year, more than 900 clubs across Australia took part and raised $450,000 to help support Australians affected by breast cancer.

The BCNA hopes to raise $600,000 in 2015 and asks local sporting groups and their communities to help it reach this goal.

Pink Sports Day is an easy and fun way for sporting groups to unite for a special cause.

Participating sporting groups can fundraise for BCNA by organising activities such as sausage sizzles, cake sales or raffles.

Funds raised from Pink Sports Day will go directly to BCNA.

Robert Wood honours his grand father’s brother Albert Wright at BodangoraRob Wood came from the Central Coast to honour his great uncleAlbert Wright who fought in World War I. –
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

”I am very proud to be here today” Mr Wood said .-

Mr Wright’s name was among many who were paid tribute to at a moving ceremony at the Bodangora War Memorial on Sunday.-

Trevor Munro the author of ‘Wellington’s Finest’ which pays tribute to local men and women who have fallen relived memories of the brave men who had gone into battle at far away places. –

”As early as 1899 many militia men from the districts stepped forward to serve in South Africa during the Boer war.-

Bodangora’s contribution to the Great War is evident, many of the men listed on this memorial saw service on Gallipoli. But let us not forget that Wellington sent nearly as many men and women overseas during World War Two, despite those men having been aware of the sacrifice and maiming that had occurred a generation earlier.-

Wellington has continued to have men and women in uniform serving through later campaigns such as Korea, Vietnam, Timor Afghanistan and Iraq, many like myself serving our country in a peace-time Army.” Mr Munro told a large crowd.-

”However this year it is fitting that we remember those that appear on this Great War memorial. Over the previous year’s many of those who died in combat or from disease overseas have been the focus of Bodangora’s Anzac day activities.” This year, with the help of the students present I’d like to look at those soldiers that ‘safely’ returned to Australia, having played their part in the Great War.”-

Local students and members of the community laid cards with the names of those who had fought.-

VISITOR numbers for the Highlands hit a 13-year high last year.

The latest domestic visitor estimates for the Southern Highlands have been released from Tourism Research Australia’s National Visitor Survey.

Removing the one-off impact of the Olympics, domestic overnight visitor numbers are the highest for any calendar year since records began in 1998.

Destination Southern Highlands manager Steve Rosa said domestic overnight visitors to the Wingecarribee Shire fell just short of the 450,000 mark for the year ending December 2014.

“The last time we saw this volume was in the year 2000,” he said.

Mr Rosa said while visitor numbers were a good indication of how the Highlands was perceived as a destination, the number of nights the visitors stayed was what made a significant difference to the economy.

The number of nights spent in the Wingecarribee Shire in 2014 by domestic visitors was 1.1 million, the highest since 2000.

There were also more than one million domestic day visitors in 2014, for only the third time since 1998.

Mr Rosa said often one figure would rise while the other falls, so to have both on the rise was a benefit to the region, and also unique to the Highlands.

“We’re not simply ‘riding the same wave’ that everyone else is” he said.

“Our growth is well above that of the surrounding capital country region and even further above regional NSW.

“Visitor nights to the region grew 24 per cent in 2014 and for regional NSW growth was only one per cent.

“Our nights growth was double that of the Region and completely against the grain when you look at Regional NSW as a whole,” Mr Rosa said.

Expenditure data for the Southern Highlands recently released by Tourism Research Australia puts the domestic expenditure for 2014 just over $250 million into the Wingecarribee Shire visitor economy.

The even more rare deckchair legged heron, relaxed. See what your ornithologists think of these! Photos by Ken Hickling The extremely rare one-legged magpie – and friendly, too.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

“The young of the deckchair legged heron didn’t impress me much, attitude-wise, that is. Very similar to today’s youth: gave me the old three-fingered salute just as I clicked the shutter.”

THE “discovery” of one-legged peewees in Robertson may have been a flight of fancy, but deckchair herons in Colo Vale have to be seen to be believed.

Geoff Goodfellow’s “Across The River” column was only foolin’ on April 1 when the Southern Highland News published the peewee prank.

Now happy snapper Ken Hickling has stepped forward with camera in hand to focus our attention on the herons and “the extremely rare one-legged magpie”.

“See what your ornithologists think of these,” Mr Hickling said, flourishing photographs that clearly show the feathered friends populating his property.

Mr Hickling, a 50-year resident of the Highlands, was delighted to find the three heron siblings, inclined to recline and encamped on his dam jetty, last year.

He reports the trio return regularly for fishing expeditions, yoga poses – including the eponymous deckchair – and aerial displays to rival any RAAF Roulette.

The one-legged magpie also drops in routinely to offer quality assurance on all and any offerings of mince meat, along with a welcome warble or two.

“I hasten to add,” Mr Hickling said, “that both my doctor and lawyer … have said to my face that they ‘truly believe me to be of soundmind’.”

Fox News is ‘incredibly depressing’ says the Daily Show host.

Comedian Jon Stewart says he quit the Daily Show after a long period of lower satisfaction with his work, depression and frustration at the American political process and biased news services.

Comedian Jon Stewart says he quit the Daily Show after a long period of lower satisfaction with his work, depression and frustration at the American political process and biased news services.

Jon Stewart has revealed he decided to quit the “most perfect job in the world’ as host of the Daily Show after he became mired in a period of dissatisfaction and anger at key news services and the US political process.

Stewart announced in February he would give up the helm of Comedy Central’s popular nightly news satire show at the end of 2015.

“You have moments of dissatisfaction, and then you come out of it and it’s OK. But the cycles become longer and maybe more entrenched,” he said.

Stewart joined the Daily Show in 1999 and performs for more than a million viewers each night. But he told The Guardian there were many low points in the last 16 years, including skipping the jokes to cover major news events such as the Charlie Hebdo killings and the constant diet of bad news.

He was particularly scathing of Fox News, a right-leaning news service owned by Rupert Murdoch.

“Watching these channels all day is incredibly depressing,” Stewart said, humourously exaggerating the effect of Fox News on his mental health. “I live in a constant state of depression. I think of us as turd miners. I put on my helmet, I go and mine turds, hopefully I don’t get turd lung disease.”

He added the only time he would ever watch Fox News in the future would be by accident, if he was roaming the wintery fields of America after a nuclear accident and mistook the light for a food source. Then he would immediately turn it off.

Stewart, 52, also attributed his decision to a growing disenchantment with American politics as well as desire to spend more time with his children, Nathan, 10, and Maggie, nine.

“It was a combination of the limitations of my brain and a format that is geared towards following an increasingly redundant process, which is our political process. I was just thinking, ‘Are there other ways to skin this cat?’ And, beyond that, it would be nice to be home when my little elves get home from school, occasionally.”

In preparation for his exit, Stewart has begun working on a range of projects. His first film, Rosewater, will be released in May. The harrowing account of a reporter imprisoned in Iran was adapted into a screenplay and director by Stewart.

He will be replaced on the Daily Show by young South African comedian Trevor Noah.

Noah’s announcement was accompanied by a storm of online criticism after curious fans unearthed a series of tweets that appeared to make light of violence against women as well as mock overweight women.

Tweets, mostly from 2011 before his rise to international fame, feature a crude sexual joke about Jewish women, as well as mocking “fat chicks,” “Thai hookers,” lesbian porn and women’s sports.

Long-running series Home and Away enters the Logies Hall of Fame.Home and Away to receive Gold Logie for its success which has seen the launch of several stars’ careers: Kate Ritchie and Heath Ledger once played students in the popular TV show. Photo: Seven Network
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

The long-running Seven Network soap opera Home and Away has been inducted into the TV Week Logie Hall of Fame.

The 32nd inductee since the award was created in 1984, the show will receive a specially struck Gold Logie at the TV Week Logie Awards in Melbourne on June 3.

In a statement from TV Week, which produces the event, the magazine notes the show’s extraordinary international success, and the fact that it has been a launch pad for a raft of stars, including Heath Ledger, Naomi Watts, Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Kwanten.

While there is little doubt the award is well deserved – the show has also notched up 6000 episodes in almost three decades – it will do little to quell anxiety that the award historically discriminates against women.

Of the 31 previous inductees, only one has been a woman: the actress Ruth Cracknell, who was given the honour in 2001.

The remainder have been either men or, on three occasions, TV programs.

It seems an astonishing oversight as there is no shortage of worthy recipients among Australia’s female television pioneers, beginning with the first woman to win a Gold Logie, Lorrae Desmond, whose win back in 1962 was for a television program that she – rarely for the 1960s – produced, wrote and hosted.

Other candidates would include the iconic TV personalities Maggie Tabberer and Kerri-Anne Kennerley, journalists such as Geraldine Doogue, Caroline Jones and Mary Kostakidis, pioneering female TV comedians such as Noelene Brown, Carol Raye and Maggie Dence, and Toni Lamond, who was the first woman in the world to host a night time TV variety show.

And that is without exploring the rich legacy of Australian actresses, including Noni Hazlehurst, Jackie Weaver, Lorraine Bayly and Sigrid Thornton.

Or even the television program Prisoner, which not only created a ground-breaking platform for Australian actresses at a time when drama was dominated by men, but has had an enduring impact on the emergence and prominence of women in front of and behind the camera.

The Hall of Fame award is voted by an “industry” panel, that is, professionals working in the television industry and media; they are provided with a short list of candidates from which a winner is determined by vote.

Most past inductees are television presenters and actors, including Graham Kennedy, Bill Collins, Mike Walsh, Bud Tingwell and Jack Thompson.

The three programs in the Hall of Fame are Four Corners, Neighbours and Play School.

In addition, there are several executives, including producers Hector Crawford and Reg Grundy, the combat cameraman Neil Davis and the film director and Academy Award winner Ken G. Hall.

Women have featured more prominently in the history of the Gold Logie itself, an award voted instead by the TV viewing public.

The awards were just a few years old when actress and variety star Lorrae Desmond became the first woman to take home a Gold Logie in 1962.

Since then more than a dozen women have taken home Gold Logies. They include Hazel Phillips, Maggie Tabberer, Pat McDonald, Denise Drysdale, Jeanne Little, Rowena Wallace, Kylie Minogue and Jana Wendt.

The end of the 1990s saw the beginning of a streak of so-called Logie “golden girls” with Lisa McCune, Georgie Parker and Kate Ritchie winning multiple times.

The most recent female Gold Logie winners are Rebecca Gibney (2009) and Asher Keddie (2013).

This year’s six Gold Logie nominees include only two women: Asher Keddie and The Project host Carrie Bickmore; the other nominees are Hamish Blake, Andy Lee, Scott Cam and Steve Peacocke.

The 57th annual TV Week Logie Awards will be held at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne on May 3.
