Andrea Wilson

The 30-year-old is a key backup player for the Spirit and a fan favourite.

“I was excited to get the call and return for another year,” Wilson said.

“The club is building for the future and I am always proud to help it do that.

“I obviously enjoy contributing on game day, and I really love helping out the younger girlswith advice at training and as part of the team’s preparation.

“Simon (Pritchard), Walshy (Andrea Walsh) and David (Flint) are solely focused on the future of the team and the club, and Iam honoured they have chosen me to help them achieve that.”

Coach Simon Pritchard said Wilson was a key player in the team set-up.

“Spirit fans don’t really get the chance to see the enormous contribution Andrea makes to the squad,” Prichard said.

“Her work at training and off the court makes her an integral part of our setup and she has agreat understanding of what our team needs to do to prepare each week and provides theenvironment for us to meet scouting strategies throughout the season.

“You don’t play as many WNBL seasons as Andrea has without being a great player and agreat person. Andrea certainly is both.

“She is the quintessential team player, and they are welcome in our squad any day of theweek.”

Wilson’s re-signing is one of the final pieces of the Spirit puzzle for the 2016-17 season.

Frontcourt starsKelsey Griffin and Gabe Richards will again be the cornerstones of the Spirit squad.

WNBA guard Blake Dietrick and Canadian forward Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe are the Spirit’s two new imports.

They’ve also signed former Australian junior representative Nadeen Payne and former University of Hawaii guard Ashleigh Karaitiana.

Kerryn Harrington, Heather Oliver and Ashleigh Spencer are also back for another WNBL season with the Bendigo Spirit.

Straight outta Victoria –?hip hop artist tours single

ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Seth Sentry will be performing on August 5 at Club 54 in Launceston, and at Hobart’s Uni Bar on August 6.
Nanjing Night Net

This Australian hip hop artist has come a long way since his first hit The Waitress Song in 2008.

Seth Marton, the man behind Seth Sentry,now has two albums and an EP under his belt, and is back on the road with his 1969 tour.

The tour name comes from a single of the same nameoff last year’sStrange New Past, the second full-length release for the Melbourne artist.

Although it has been eight years since he burst into the Australian hip hop circuit, Marton has never been in a rush with his writing, nor will he ever be.

“I write quite slowly, I like to get it right, wait until I am 100 per centsatisfied with everything,” Marton said.

For album number two, he decided to approach things a little differently.

“I didn’t try to write singles – the songs that I wrote are just how I was feeling at the time,I just wanted to create a straight-up rap albumandmade songs that my friends would enjoy,” Marton said.

“People thought that my next album was going to be more pop, but it wasn’t –I wanted to hit them with something more unexpected.”

Last year, Marton smashed out a 50-show tour to promote Strange New Past.

While this tour is nowhere near as big, he is keen to hit up the states of Australia.

Seth Sentry will be performing on August 5 at Club 54 in Launceston, and at Hobart’s Uni Bar on August 6.

Obeids?charged?over?$30m?coal deal

Eddie Obeid. Photo: Ben RushtonCorrupt former Labor minister EddieObeidand his son Moses have beenchargedovera $30 million coal deal, as authorities tighten the net around the one-time powerbroker and his familyovera series of business deals.
Nanjing Night Net

Obeidis already facing jail time after being convicted in June of misconduct in public officeoverhis business dealings at Circular Quay.

Fairfax Media can now reveal the 72-year-old and his entrepreneurial middle son Moses, 47, were quietlychargedlast yearovera coal deal at Mount Penny in the Bylong Valley near Mudgee. The identity of a third personchargedoverthe same matter cannot be revealed for legal reasons.

The conspiracy charges relate to a lucrative coal tenement the Independent Commission Against Corruption heard was created “smack bang” on top of theObeidfamily’s rural property Cherrydale Park whileObeidwas in office.

The charges against father and son follow an explosive 2012 ICAC inquiry, which revealed theObeidfamily received a $30 million windfall from the coal deal.

The corruption uncovered in that inquiry and others involving former NSW Labor figures was famously described as “on a scale probably unexceeded since the days of the Rum Corps”.

The fact thatObeidhad beenchargedoverthe Mount Penny coal deal was suppressed to ensure thatObeidsenior suffered no prejudice in his recent criminal trial in the NSW Supreme Courtoverhis business dealings at Circular Quay.

He was convicted on June 28 of misconduct in public office and the Crown is pushing for a jail sentence. DuringObeid’s three-week trial the Supreme Court heard the then upper house MP lobbied Steve Dunn, then deputy chief executive of the state maritime authority, to benefit retail tenants at Circular Quay “under the cloak” of acting for arm’s-length constituents.

In fact,Obeidwas acting in his private interests. The jury heard his family had a secret interest in two cafes on wharves four and five at Circular Quay and they were among a group of tenants seeking to have their leases renewed without competing in a public tender.

August is set to be a busy month for the former Labor powerbroker. On August 12, Justice Robert Beech-Jones will hear submissions about a possible jail term forObeidoverthe Circular Quay cafes.

On August 29, Eddie and MosesObeidwill appear in the Downing Centre Local Court for a committal hearingoverthe conspiracy charges, slated to run for five days. The first two weeks of August will be taken up by a civil case in whichObeidand three of his five sons – Moses, Paul and Eddie jnr – are suing former ICAC commissioner David Ipp, counsel assisting Geoffrey Watson, SC, and another seven ICAC officers for “misfeasance in public office”.

The Obeids maintain they were unfairly targeted by the corruption watchdog and the family want damages for their economic loss and for the “significant stress, mental anxiety and injury” they claim to have suffered.

Other legal matters on foot for theObeidfamily include the ongoing stoush between the Australian Taxation Office and family matriarch JudyObeidand eight of her nine children.

In addition, Moses and Paul are being pursued in court by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for alleged bid-rigging conduct in relation to two lucrative coal exploration licences. One of the licences wasoverthe Mount Penny property.

The ACCC is seeking monetary penalties and costs as well as orders that the men be disqualified from managing companies for a set time.

Call for rethink on yards

Brendan Abbey, spokesman for the consortium that wants to build a private regional saleyards at Mortlake.
Nanjing Night Net

WARRNAMBOOL City Council (WCC) might need to rethink its forthcominginvestment in the Warrnambool saleyards, the proponent for a private regional saleyards at Mortlake says.

Brendan Abbey said he expected his private regional saleyards would attract between 30-40 per cent of the cattle throughput currently handled by the Warrnambool saleyards.

His comments follow WCC’s announcement last week that it was giving its long-term support to the Warrnambool saleyards at theirCaramut Road location.

The council’sdeclaration of long-term support for the Warrnambool saleyards follows two previous moves by the council to divest itself of the facility, the most recent in 2014.

The council’sefforts to divest itself of the saleyardswere abandoned following community opposition, including that from the Warrnambool Stock Agents Association.

Theassociation’s president Anthony Mahony said funding had been secured to install roofing over the Warrnambool saleyards’dirt yards.

He said an above ground watering system and a new compressor for the scales had also been recently installed at the saleyards.

Corangamite Shire Council this month also declared its support for its Camperdown saleyards, announcing it would invest this financial year in two capital projects at the saleyards worth about $10,000.

Corangamite shire had also previously explored the possibility of divesting itself of the Camperdown saleyards in favour of a private regional facility in the shire but no progress appears to have been made on that issue.

Mr Abbey said WCC’s declaration of support for the Warrnambool saleyards would not alter his consortium’s plans to build a $15 million regional saleyards at Mortlake.

“It’s still full steam ahead,” he said.

Mr Abbey said his consortium had gained support from stock agents in Hamilton, Camperdown, Colac, Geelong and Ballarat whosaid they would send livestock to its regional facility at Mortlake.

All of the saleyards in the south-west are operated by local government but Mr Abbey said his consortiumhad not asked any south-west councils to support the venture.

He said theconsortium aimed to have itsregional saleyards built by the end of next year and put through between 150,000-200,000 cattle a year.

Mr Abbey said it hadbought a 69 hectare (170 acres)siteat the corner of the Hamilton Highway and Connewarren Lane in Mortlake for the facility and was negotiating on another 36ha (90 acres) on which to build a quarantine facility for cattle for live exports.

The plan for the quarantine facility was for it to handlethe cattle sold at the regional saleyards for live export markets, he said.

Mr Abbey’s consortium, which comprises five Yass farming families and a solicitor, will next month open its $15 million regional South Eastern Livestock Exchange at Yass that will sell both sheep and cattle.

Reforms cause concern for Bega

TAFE Illawarra is no more, with individual institutes dismantled and placed under the control of one streamlined provider.
Nanjing Night Net

TAFE Illawarra is no more, withindividual institutes dismantled and placed under the control of onestreamlined provider.

Minister for Skills John Barilaro announced on Wednesday last weekthe state’s 10 TAFE institutes would become one overarching, multi-campus operation –part of “once-in-a-generationreforms”ofthe sector.

The change comes into effect immediately but it is unclear how TAFEIllawarra will be effected.

As part of the change a new digital education headquarters will be created in regional NSW to deliver more online and in-workplace training in a move the government says will expand TAFE’s reach and reverse the huge recent decline in enrolments.

TAFE Illawarra Bega campus Teachers Federation representative David Grainger is concerned the push towards online learning could have a negative affect on students and could also mean job losses at the local campus.

“The Bega campus is a fantastic resource and I would hate to see it downsized and for students to suffer,” he said.

Mr Grainger’s concerns lay in thatevery person learns differently and he believesstreamlining the approach could make TAFE more difficult for people who learn best with hands-on demonstrations and face-to-face discussions.

NSW Teachers Federation representative for Bega’s TAFE campus David Grainger at a “Stop TAFE cuts” forum in 2014.

“There are other parts to learning including access to a counsellor or a careers advisorand being able to go to a library and be assisted by a trained librarian,” he said.

“These other services can mean the difference between success and failure for many local students.”

The announcement last week did not go into detail on how it will be implemented and Mr Grainger said this is the main problem as he is “more worried about what wasn’t announced”.

Mr Barilaroassured the News Weekly on Tuesday, July 18, that there wereno plans in placetoclosethe TAFE Illawarra Bega campus.

“Where there is a TAFE today, there will be a TAFE in the future,” Mr Barilaro said.

“TAFE is not leaving town.”

NSW Farmers: unanimous opposition to?backpacker tax

NSW Farmers delegateshave votedunanimously to oppose the Federal Government’s 32.5 per cent backpacker tax hike and seek a new solution.
Nanjing Night Net

A lively policy debate played outat the Association’s annual conference in Sydney this afternoon, with delegates’frustrations ringing clear overthe government’s stance.

Producers reeled whengovernment announcedin its 2015/16 budgetthat it would abolish the $18,200tax-free threshold on backpackers and set a flat tax rate of 32.5 per cent.

Farmers fearimpacts to seasonallabour supply and wastage ofunpicked fruit and vegetables, which the conference heard would “create a crisis” in the industry.

Today’sconference motion, put forward by the Association’s Bathurst branch and supported unanimously, called for renewed efforts to seek a“reasonable, measured”solution.

“I don’ think we can afford to lose this valuable workforce,” said Bathurst delegate David McKay

“I can tell you we will lose people to NZ – where they have a 10 per centtax rate.”

Delegates rejected anamendmentfora flat rate tax of 15 per cent with notax-free threshold – which isthe practice in the shearing industry.

An amendmentfor zero tax was also rejected.

Under current 417 working holiday visa conditions, backpackers are eligible for a tax-free threshold of $18,200 then pay a rate of 19pc up to $37,000 and 32.5pc up to $80,000.

In Maygovernment said it woulddefer the tax for six months until January 1 2017.

It’s estimated the average working holiday maker earns about $15,000 while in Australia.
