Same-sex couples head over the ditch for vows

29/06/2018 // by admin

United: Tony Briffa and Manja Sommeling.Hundreds of Australian same-sex-couples have married in New Zealand since marriage equality laws came into effect a year ago.

In the first 12 months, 926 same-sex couples have tied the knot in New Zealand, according to the New Zealand registry of marriages. Of those, 237 weddings – nearly one in four – involved Australian residents.

As New Zealand commemorated the first anniversary of its marriage equality laws last week, a Senate inquiry heard how thousands of same-sex couples have married overseas but still lack recognition under federal law.

Ten years ago, the Howard government amended the Marriage Act to prohibit same-sex marriages overseas being recognised in Australia. According to the most recent census, 1338 same-sex couples have married overseas.

Australians for Marriage Equality director Rodney Croome said many Australians would prefer to marry at home but could not wait any longer. ”It’s an indictment on Australia that our citizens have to travel to another country to be treated with dignity and respect,” he said.

Former Hobsons Bay mayor Tony Briffa will celebrate her first wedding anniversary with school teacher Manja Sommeling, 47, next month but her marriage remains in legal limbo.

”I proposed on Valentine’s Day last year,” she said. ”I got down on one knee in front of the house we had just bought and in which we now live.”

While the Altona Meadows couple had planned to marry in Canada, when New Zealand passed its marriage equality laws they opted for Dunedin instead. Being born both male and female, Ms Briffa’s marriage cannot be recognised under Australian law. The 44-year-old told the inquiry the proposed bill to recognise overseas same-sex marriages still excluded intersex people. Ms Briffa suggested the definition of marriage should remove all mention of gender.

Carnegie couple Michael Barnett, 45, and his husband Gregory Storer, 51, had been together for five years when they tied the knot in New Zealand’s Queenstown. Mr Barnett said friends and family treated the couple as married – regardless of the Australian law.

The Australian Family Association said recognising overseas same-sex marriages would create an inconsistency in the Marriage Act, and would add pressure to recognise same-sex marriage broadly.

The inquiry into formal recognition of overseas marriages is expected to report to the Federal Parliament on September 3.

Stocks to watch

Earnings today from: BlueScope Steel, Caltex Australia, McMillan Shakespeare, M2, NIB Holdings, Orora, PFL, Recall Holdings.

Shaw Stockbroking has a “buy” recommendation on Mermaid Marine, which it rates as “high risk” with a price target of $3.20 a share.

Morningstar has a “hold” recommendation on Trade Me following the release of its full year results for the financial year ended June 30, 2014, and expects the share price to reach a fair value of $3.60.

Macquarie Research has a positive take on Village Roadshow saying the stock will “outperform” in the next 12 months. It says VRL is an attractive investment opportunity and has a 12 month price target of $8.50.


Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen called for a “pragmatic” approach to US monetary policy on Friday, amid calls by hawkish members of the central bank’s policy committee for a quick rise in interest rates due to tightening labour markets and inflationary risks.

Five months after the US Mint began producing coins made with platinum, sales have all but collapsed as investors continue to favour gold and silver. “It’s not considered a currency,” said Jason Carstensen, a medical-sales representative in Ventura, California, who spends about $US2000 a month on coins, according to Bloomberg.


Nickel fell 0.4 per cent to finish at $US18,750 per tonne after data showed excess supplies on the market. The global nickel market had a 1800 tonne surplus in June in contrast to a 3300 tonne deficit the month earlier.

Baoshan Iron & Steel Co Ltd (Baosteel), China’s biggest listed steelmaker by stock market value, posted a 14.8 per cent fall in first-half net profit, reflecting weak prices and slackening demand growth, the company said on Friday.

Gold prices edged up on Friday as US equities slipped, but gains were limited. “I see no reasons to own gold, which is likely to trend lower with rallies being sold. The Treasury yields at under 3 per cent and crude oil prices showing signs of a recession are significant headwinds for precious metals,” said Jonathan Jossen, COMEX gold options floor trader in New York.

United States

Despite losses on Friday, all three major indexes posted gains for the week, with the Dow up 2 per cent, the S&P up 1.7 per cent and the Nasdaq up 1.6 per cent. It was the strongest week of gains for both the Dow and the S&P since April, and the third straight week of gains for all three indexes.

Goldman Sachs Group will pay $US3.15 billion to settle claims from the US housing finance regulator that it sold bad mortgage-backed securities. Goldman said it would repurchase the securities sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over the 2005-2007 period.

Optimism about near-term market direction hit a nine-month high in the latest AAII Sentiment Survey, with 46.1 per cent of respondents expecting gains over the next six month. “There’s a good underlying tone in the market and we still have plenty of prospects for more gains,” said Michael Mullaney, chief investment officer at Fiduciary Trust Co in Boston. He added that he would not be concerned about valuation until the S&P’s forward price-to-earnings ratio was 17 and its trailing P/E was 20. Those metrics currently stand at 15.7 and 17.4, respectively.


European shares fell on Friday after a brisk two-week rally, hurt by a ratcheting-up of tensions in Ukraine, although traders said Yellen’s dovish tone limited losses. “European indexes are halted by big resistance levels. At this point, investors should think about hedging their portfolios,” Aurel BGC chartist Gerard Sagnier said.

German venture capital firm Rocket Internet and Zalando, Europe’s biggest specialist online fashion retailer, are both on the brink of announcing plans to list on the Frankfurt stock exchange, several sources with knowledge of the matter said.

Royal Bank of Scotland might split its international private bank into separate European and Asian divisions to attract Asian buyers who have the financial muscle for a deal but are reluctant to take on European client risk.

What happened on Friday

The local sharemarket added 0.1 per cent. Oil and gas producer Santos was a highlight, adding 3.9 per cent to $15.16 on Friday after announ­cing a bumper dividend. The stock rose 5.3 per cent over the week.

Energy was the best-performing sector over the week, up 3.6 per cent. Origin Energy lifted 5.6 per cent to $14.84 despite showing a weak full-year profit on Thursday as the company shared a more optimistic outlook for this year.

Victor Harbor journalist completes ice bucket challengeVideo

16/09/2019 // by admin

The #IceBucketChallenge for motor neurone disease (MND) has hit newsrooms across Fairfax Media.

The Times journalist Anthony Caggiano was dared to complete the challenge by Dylan Hogarth of the Murray Valley Standard. You can see Dylan’s video here.

Anthony has nominated three other Fairfax Media staff to complete the challenge.

The social media craze sees people post a video online of them pouring a bucket of iced water over their head. They have the right to nominate three others to either do the same, or make a donation in aid of the cause.

Celebrities who have taken up the challenge include Calvin Harris, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Kylie Minogue.

MND Australia said the acronym is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells (neurones) controlling the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow undergo degeneration and die.

It is also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in many parts of the world, and as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the USA.

Research is being performed to find a cure.

Low on players, big on results

16/09/2019 // by admin

ACHIEVEMENT: Young High School’s eight-man touch football team consisting of (back, left to right) Matt Murray, Luke Doldissen, Harry Dunn, Angus Ross, Josh Reynolds, Jacob Lucas and (front, left to right) Nathan Anderson and Joel McKenzie have returned home from Gosford after placing among the top eight touch football teams in the state. (sub)Young’s Open Touch Football team have had an extremely successful season in 2014, being named among the top eight teams in the state.

After winning a number of regional tournaments, then against Sydney at home, they progressed to the top 10 finals play-offs in Gosford last week.

According to coach Ben Cooper the level of touch football played in Gosford was absolutely outstanding, and with many players being NSW and Australian representatives, the carnival pulled together the best of the best in the touch world.

Young had the opportunity to display their skills against large Sydney schools and the elite sports high schools.

“Young High fielded a team small in numbers, but huge in heart,” he said.

Injuries and some students away on holidays, Young’s eight players had to front up against teams of 14.

A lack of reserves meant the team had to stay on field for the entire game.

“I was amazed at the pace of play – the games were fast and furious,” team manager Susan Wilkinson said.

And the Central Coast’s torrential rain did nothing to slow them down.

The relentless attack from Young’s centres allowed for some impressive driving with Matt Murray, Nathan Anderson and Joel McKenzie controlling the play.

Jacob Lucas, the only Year 7 student at the tournament, rose to the occasion and despite initially being concerned about playing “men with beards” had a cracker of a carnival and cemented his crucial role in the senior team.

Josh Reynolds was an absolute workhorse and had his best tournament yet, while Harry Dunn continued to demonstrate his agility, ball skills and positive talk. Angus Ross came into the team at the last minute and played impressively right across the field.

Coach Cooper was extremely proud of his team.

“For the boys to have achieved eighth position in NSW Opens Touch is absolutely outstanding,” he said.

“The fact that we had a young team also points to a bright future for our opens squad.

“I would like to thank all the boys for their commitment to training, dedication to learning set plays and for their excellent sportsmanship.”

Cooper went on to say the carnival was a great way to send off Year 12 students Nathan Anderson and Joel McKenzie who have represented the school for six years and helped to referee and coach junior touch teams.

The focus now turns to Young High’s junior touch football, with the school’s Year 7/8 and 9/10 touch teams heading off to state finals in Penrith on November 7.

Bossley Park truck driver fined

16/09/2019 // by admin

The trailer carrying the barramundi had significant rustA seriously defected truck carrying a load of live barramundi has been pulled over during a three-day heavy-vehicle operation in the state’s south.

Operation Siritis was run by the Joint Heavy Vehicle Taskforce, which comprises personnel from the NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Command and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

It targeted heavy vehicles not complying with road-transport legislation, as well as unsafe and illegal driver behaviour.

The operation started at 6am on August 19and ran until 10pmAugust 21, with a focus on the heavy-vehicle freight industry travelling the Hume Highway corridor.

Over the three days of Operation Siritis, police and RMS officers inspected a total of 771 trucks and trailers at sites in Marulan, Holbrook and West Wyalong.

It was at Holbrook that police pulled over a refrigerated truck on August 20.

They questioned the driver, who informed them he was carrying a load of live barramundi.

The fish, which were contained in six tanks in the back of the truck, were bound for restaurants in Sydney.

“Upon closer inspection, officers found the trailer to have significant rust throughout, which could have given way at any time – causing danger not only to the driver of the truck, but also to other road users following nearby,” NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, said.

“Trucks carrying significant loads that are not securely restrained is a serious issue for the industry overall.

“Joint Heavy Vehicle Taskforce officers shouldn’t have to be the ones who are securing loads on trucks that have left major distribution centres throughout Australia,” Assistant Commissioner Hartley said.

The truck driver, a 42-year-old Bossley Park man, was issued with two traffic infringement notices for the offences of allow liquid to fall to roadway and use unsafe/unserviceable vehicle.

He also received a defect notice.

Wingham Tigers off to a good start

16/09/2019 // by admin

WINGHAM had a great start to the Group Three Rugby League elimination semi-final when Matt Bartlett sent a pass to an unmarked winger Blake Sky to scamper across for a try.

Luke Steel nailed the goal from the sideline.

The Sharks replied when elusive centre Oral Monaghan slipped a tackle and sprinted to the corner to cross for an unconverted try.

Wingham had further cause to celebrate when Matt Bridge sent a close pass to Ricky Tobi and the second rower was over just before halftime. Steel’s goal made it 12-4 at lemons.

Wingham coughed up possession from the re-start and Monaghan made them pay when he showed pace to get outside the defence and race over. Geary potted an angled conversion and at 12-10 the Sharks were back in business.

Mitch Steel then grabbed an intercept 40 metres out. He’s been troubled by hamstring problems this year and this was obvious as he laboured his way to the line.

But he got there and a Matt Bridge field goal soon after opened up a 17-10 lead with 15 minutes remaining.

Penalties started to flow Port’s way from there and from a loose ball Gore sent centre Adam Greenaway over, Wingham players later claiming the ball earlier went forward off a Port player. Geary kicked the conversion. His penalty goal soon after rounded off the scoring, with the Sharks trooping off 18-17 winners.

Rapper identified as James Foley’s executioner: reports

16/08/2019 // by admin

British rapper suspected asFoley’s executioner:London rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary has been identified as the leading suspect in the beheading of US journalist JamesFoley, according to reports.

British intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6 have identified the man suspected of the horrific beheading of American journalist James Foley, according to British media reports.

The hooded man with an English accent is believed to be 23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, known to fellow Islamic State militants as Jihadi John.

The former rapper left his family home in an affluent west London suburb last year to fight in the civil war in Syria.

In early August he tweeted a photo of himself wearing military camouflage and a black hood, while holding a severed head in his left hand.

Key suspect: Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary who raps under the name Lyricist Jinn Matic. Photo: YouTube

British SAS forces are hunting Foley’s killer, using a range of high-tech equipment to track him down and potentially free other hostages.

The Mail on Sunday is reporting that a “significant force” of SAS personnel has been deployed to northern Iraq over the past two days, joining local units fighting the Islamic State. They have fanned out into four-man teams, accompanying Iraqi and Kurdish troops in an effort to find British jihadists.

The Sunday Times reports that Bary is the key focus of the manhunt. He is one of the British jihadists referred to by former hostagesas the Beatles because of their British accents. The two others were called “George” and “Ringo”.

The two other Britons suspected of involvement in the crime are Aine Davis, a former drug dealer who converted to Islam, and Razul Islam, who is believed to have joined the terrorist group that murdered Foley.

Bary is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terrorism charges in Manhattan, due to his alleged involvement in the bombing of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

Before leaving the family home to fight in Syria, Bary was an aspiring rapper known as L Jinny whose music was played on one of Britain’s most popular radio stations, BBC Radio 1.

Recordings of his songs will prove vital to the investigating team, with experts using voice recognition technology to match his voice with that of the man who brutally decapitated Mr Foley.

Bary made a number of music videos for his songs, with titles such as Flying High, Dreamer and Overdose.

It is believed he was indoctrinated by an Islamic preacher named Anjem Choudary who persuaded him to join the fight in Syria.

Baird’s rocky drop in

16/08/2019 // by admin

THEY came to open the revamped Rocky Hill war memorial but controversy tagged Premier Mike Baird and his Minister Pru Goward all day.

If it wasn’t a wind farm protest greeting the duo at a Liberal Party fundraiser, it was the fallout of ICAC proceedings.

The corruption scandal hung heavily in the air at the Southern Star Inn. Some 80 people were there to support Ms Goward’s Goulburn campaign for 2015.

Ms Goward later told the Post that every person had to sign a document stating they weren’t a prohibited donor.

“Everybody was independently checked by the State Liberal Party and I know that because I spoke to the state director yesterday to confirm that they weren’t developers, pub owners or any other prohibited donor. It was all properly done,” she said.

Ms Goward was confident that she had never received an illegal donation. She said she did not handle any fundraising proceedings; it went directly to the State Electoral Council and was checked.

Mr Baird spoke about the ICAC inquiry at Friday’s lunch. He told the audience he and the party were “gutted” by the fallout and about his planned reforms, Ms Goward said.

PEOPLE’S MEMORIAL: NSW Premier Mike Baird (second right) officially opened Goulburn’s upgraded Rocky Hill War Memorial on Friday. Local photographer Matt Maas presented his stunning photo of Rocky Hill at night to Mr Baird as the council’s gift from the city. Also on hand were Mayor Geoff Kettle, Goulburn RSL Sub Branch president Gordon Wade, Goulburn MP Pru Goward and Hume MP Angus Taylor.

The MP could not say how the recent findings would affect her own campaign. She said she would understand and accept that people would be disgusted by the ICAC revelations but Mr Baird was intent on changing things.

“I have to fight the next election very hard,” she said.

“I think it has been a good government, we’re building things and we have the finances back under control and Goulburn is very comfortable.

“There are challenges though. I hope the review of (Goulburn Base) hospital’s upgrade is finished by the end of year I think we can get some money from the poles and wires sale to fund it.”

Ms Goward said the government had “done well” for Goulburn and she hoped for even more in the second term.

She was not concerned who the Labor candidate for Goulburn would be.

Meantime, Mayor Geoff Kettle said he would not be Ms Goward’s campaign manager at the 2015 election. Cr Kettle is also president of the Liberal State Electoral Council.

“The normal practice is that the president is also the campaign manager but I will be discussing my role with Ms Goward,” he said.

Cr Kettle told the Post he wanted to be impartial as mayor of Goulburn Mulwaree and maintain his focus on the area’s advancement. As such, he is also considering his future as SEC president.

But for at least 30 minutes, politics was swept aside “up on the hill.”

Mr Baird and a host of other dignitaries witnessed another milestone in Rocky Hill’s long history, the opening of a $400,000 upgrade. It includes a lowered forecourt, new steps and a ramp to the city’s iconic memorial.

School students, citizens, volunteers, defence force brass, police and councillors lauded the improvements on a rainthreatening though sunny afternoon.

Goulburn High School captain Hannah Cotton hosted proceedings and Cr Alfie Walker provided a welcome to country for a place holding rich cultural significance for everyone.

Goulburn East Public School students sung the national anthem and later their rendition, ‘We will Remember’ rang out over the city’s heights.

“I am looking out over our city, with this fantastic forecourt full of guests from across the generations and our iconic Rocky Hill is in the background,” Cr Kettle told the crowd.

“It doesn’t get much better, does it? I would suggest that this War Memorial would be one of the best in Australia, and arguably, second only to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra when it comes to experiencing the solemnity and atmosphere of a Dawn Service.”

The council contributed $320,000 to the work and the state government – $76,000.

Mr Baird paid tribute to the sacrifices in World War One, Goulburn’s 1500 men who enlisted and the community’s contribution to the memorial over many years.

He spoke of William Chisholm, reportedly the first Australian killed in World War One, who was born in Sydney but had strong Goulburn links. His name is still revered in the French village, Lignyen- Cambresis where a street is named after him.

Mr Baird said Goulburn should be justly proud of its memorial to the fallen.

The city gave Mr Baird a framed photograph of Rocky Hill set to a full moon, taken by local photographer Matt Maas who was on hand for the presentation.

Goulburn RSL Sub Branch president Gordon Wade also hosted the opening.

Guests included Federal Hume MP Angus Taylor, State Roads Minister Duncan Gay, who played a role in the project, mayors from surrounding areas, local councillors, RSL national president Rear Admiral Ken Doolan, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Moody, military adviser to the New Zealand High Commission, Hume Local Area police commander Zoran Dzevlan, the Bishop of Canberra/Goulburn, the Right Reverend Stuart Robinson and Dean of St Saviour’s, the Very Reverend Phillip Saunders and local principals and school leaders.

Germein Gorge Road to reopen next MondayVIDEO

16/08/2019 // by admin

The Germein Gorge Road during repairs. It is set to reopen next Monday.The fire and flood ravaged Germein Gorge Road in the southern Flinders Ranges will finally open early next month after major repair works.

The main road through the ranges between Port Germein to Murray Town has been closed since January this year after the devastating Bangor Bushfire destroyed vegetation and subsequent heavy rains caused massive flood damage.

Acting Transport and Infrastructure Minister Tom Koutsantonis said time lapse footage released by the State Government showed the enormous task to rebuild the road.

“The footage shows the extent of the repair works being undertaken along Germein Gorge Road, following fire and flood damage earlier this year,” Mr Koutsantonis said.

“Services South East Pty Ltd, who are specialists in natural disaster clean-ups, were contracted to do the works.

“They are being undertaken in an environmentally-sensitive manner so as not to further damage the surrounding habitat.”

Regional Development Minister Geoff Brock said a range of restoration and recovery works have been undertaken.

“We are conserving the original stonemason walls where possible, building 13 temporary silt traps and reinforcing and reinstating the road in areas where it has been damaged beyond repair,” Mr Brock said.

“This will ensure Germein Gorge Road can accommodate future hi-volume water flows.”

The road is expected to be reopened on Monday, 1 September, weather permitting.

The final cost for all repairs is estimated at $2.4 million from the State Government’s Disaster Relief Fund.

Deputy Bob praises leader

16/08/2019 // by admin

IT’S A DEAL: Deputy Mayor Bob Kirk and Mayor Geoff Kettle with Yutaka and Yuko Imai and Southern Meats general manager Craig Newton earlier this month.DEPUTY Mayor Bob Kirk has formally given the council’s leader a “pat on the back” for his recent efforts on Goulburn Mulwaree’s behalf.

In a notice of motion at Tuesday’s meeting he successfully moved that the Council record its thanks and appreciation to Mayor Geoff Kettle and that he be “commended for his focus and his efforts.”

But the idea didn’t sit comfortably with Cr Robin Saville, who abstained from voting.

“I’m just concerned this is out of place and rather bizarre, especially given we have a mayoral election next month,” he said.

Cr Kirk replied that it had nothing to do with the mayoral election, which he described as a coincidence.

He had simply been thinking about Cr Kettle’s work and intended it as a “complimentary motion,” he told the meeting.

“I think it’s entirely appropriate to recognise this and to say to people we’re not just a bunch of fat cats…A lot of people have no idea of the time and effort required.”

Cr Kirk was referring to Cr Kettle’s role in finalising an export lamb deal between Southern Meats and Japanese businessman, Yutaka Imai, who recently visited from Goulburn’s sister-city, Shibetsu. Mr Imai and his wife Yuko arrived following a reciprocal Goulburn Mulwaree visit to Shibetsu in July. While there, Cr Kettle had suggested Southern Meats as an export option for Mr Imai’s restaurants.

“A week or so back, following this very successful visit…I was giving thought to the role that Cr Kettle had played in making it such a success,” Cr Kirk told the meeting.

“Then I thought on the many activities that he has carried out during his time as Mayor – and how well he has done so.”

He said many people would not be aware of his efforts in “nursing the (Macarthur Grange) brewery proposal through to fruition,” pushing the archival storage project to key political players or the five days he had spent with the Imais during their time here.

“There have also been some difficult and embarrassing moments for Council in that time and these have also been well and professionally handled,” Cr Kirk said.

“Out of the latest of such moments, the Oallen Ford bridge issue, the mayor has again excelled. Under threat of losing the government grant for this project, Mayor Kettle got on the front foot, went to Sydney, contacted and met with Minister (Duncan) Gay and successfully secured the funding so this project can proceed. That was last week’s achievement.

“I know he will say he has been well supported by me and others, but his energy, focus and professionalism in all manner of dealings is outstanding and I would like to say so on behalf of the community.”

Cr Kettle replied that he was embarrassed.

“But you’re 100 per cent correct.

The person sitting here is only as good as the people in front and to the left and right of him,” he said.

All other councillors voted in favour of the motion.

The Mayoral and Deputy Mayoral elections will be held on September 16. Both Cr Kettle and Cr Kirk have committed to standing.
