IN the lead-in to the Anzac commemorations, the Manning Valley Historical Society is compiling a record of young men from the valley who went to war underage.
Nanjing Night Net

Eric Richardson of the society said there hasn’t previously been a written record of this information.

“These are the names only the families can give,” he said.

It is hoped that families will come forward to help fill in the blanks and add to the small list being compiled.

Already known to the society is Lee Summerville from Number One who was killed in New Gunea just before his 18th birthday.

Lance Andrews was killed just before his 17th birthday and Geoff Hammond ran away from boarding school to join the Army.

The difficult part for historians is the likelihood young men would have lied about their age and so official records will be innacurate, said Eric.

“We would like to recognise them for their bigger than necessary contribution,” he said.

Anyone with information can contact the Manning Valley Historical Society at the Wingham Museum 12 Farquhar Street, Wingham NSW 2429 or phone 6553 5823. Eric Richardson can be reached directly on 6553 5412.

Held from January 17 to 25, the program will welcome 70 students from as far away as Western Australia and Papua New Guinea for a week of activities including bush walking, canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing and archery.

Mr Rice said he chose activities that would test his skills.

“There’s all these different activities to choose from and I chose rock-climbing and mountain-biking,” he said.

“Those are the ones I wanted to get qualified in and a bit more experience in.”

The Scouts Adventurous Activities School will be based at The Outlook in Boonahand will also have activities atWyaralong Dam, Mt Barney,Roadvale, Ripley, Minto and the Brisbane River.

Scouts Queensland Branch Commissioner Russell Davie said the school would allow the students to gain vital life skills in an informal setting.

“We don’t wrap kids in cotton-wool, the students will be camping, learning adventure skills and learning to think strategically, which are skills they will use in their future careers,” he said.

Mr Davie, who grew up in the Scenic Rim, said the outdoors is the best classroom and the Scenic Rim provided the perfect environment.

NSW Police Far South Coast Local Area Command says a 29-year-old female has been charged with malicious wounding.

Black Tuesday: 10 years on | GALLERYTrent’s legacy lives on after the fireWe give thanks to all the selfless volunteers, says former PremierFireballs 150m in the air, recallsCFS volunteerSunday marked10 years since Natalie Borlase lost her two children, Jack and Star, and her mother Judith Griffith as they tried to flee the Wangary bushfire – but the anniversary wasnot a morbid day.
Nanjing Night Net

Family gathered at Natalie and Darren Borlase’s farm, where they have since rebuilt their lives, spending the day with them, as they do every year on January 11.

“It’s not a morbid day for us at all,” Mrs Borlase said.

“Everyone in their own time can go to the memorial site if they want to but it’s all about being around each other and appreciating each other.”

Mrs Borlase said there had been many obstacles over the past 10 years and it put into perspective what was important in her life.

“I know quite clearly that 10 years is a long time but in my heart I don’t know where the time has gone … it feels like yesterday to me.

“I feel so much sadness but at the same time I can’t help but be proud of what we have achieved since then.

“On that day, when I look back at what the farm looked like, it was like a horror story.”

Since then vegetation has regrown, there are trees around the property and crops have been planted and harvested.

They have moved into the main farm house, rebuilt another house on the site where their home once stood and “we’ve improved ourselves”.

Keeping her marriage together is one of the things Mrs Borlase is most proud of, particularly after being told early on by a counsellor that, statistically, the chances were high their marriage would not survive.

But having lost so much she was determined she would not lose her husband as well.

“I found my life in a state of turmoil. I had lost complete control of my life.

“I had to get my head around not just losing my only two beautiful children and my mum, my dad surviving the fire with horrific injuries, our farm, livestock and home completely destroyed but I was also faced with statistics that did not favour my marriage surviving the trauma.

“I remember thinking that I would not become a statistic in regard to my marriage.

“We had lost enough … we needed to stick together.”

She is also proud of her relationship with her father, who was with her mother and two children when they died and suffered terrible burns.

Supporting her dad long distance in his recovery from his physical injuries was a challenge but she feels lucky to still have him in her life and treasures their close relationship.

She has also embraced his decision to start a new relationship and is proud of his choice in partner.

“When you lose a partner it doesn’t matter how many people want to visit or call, you still go to bed alone and wake up alone and that is when it is the hardest.”

After the fire the support became overwhelming and humbling for someone not used to receiving help, but Mrs Borlase said it was a lifeline and she could not have got through without it.

The support ranged from close family to strangers across Australia.

They even returned from Adelaide after the fire to a fully furnished house on a property they share farmed, with everything from clothes and jewellery to a computer, thanks to Ron and Janet Forster and local businesses that wanted to help.

“I could not believe that people would put pen to paper or put their hand in their purse to help someone they did not know.

“It made me have a good hard look at myself as I was always one to empathise with someone’s situation but never thought to extend it that bit further.

“That extra effort can make a remarkable difference to the person receiving it just by knowing that someone cares; it’s really quite simple.

“I can never ever begin to express how grateful I am to each and every person who extended themselves.”

One of the Borlases’ biggest decisions has been to have another baby, Cash, who was born four and a half years ago on his late grandmother Judith’s birthday.

“I decided that I had way too much love to give – and way too many farm animals to love,” Mrs Borlase said.

“(But) I knew that all the stars had to align – my mental capabilities, my physical capabilities and of course the issue of age then became a question too.”

Mrs Borlase was devastated when she had a miscarriage, followed by two unsuccessful rounds of IVF, telling her husband they just needed to be grateful for the two beautiful children they had.

“The following month, I was pregnant, I could not believe it.

“(Cash) is such a gentle, caring soul who makes a mark on all that meet him.

“I feel so lucky to be able to be a mum and in my opinion, it is the best part of who I am.”

Mrs Borlase said she remembered Star and Jack, and her mum with “an abundance of love” but also much sadness, and seeing children the same age Star and Jack as young adults was completely overwhelming.

“I cannot help but wonder what they would have looked like, what things they would have been into, what sports if any, they would have played etcetera.

“I feel cheated, I feel they were cheated.”

Jake Richardson last week competed in the national futsal championships.
Nanjing Night Net

JAKERichardson last week represented Victoria at the national futsal championships.

The 18-year-old from Sale has been selected as the number one goalkeeper for the Victorian under 19 indoor soccer squad, which made the semi-finals.

Held in Sydney this year after having the past 20 in Canberra, the open men’s and women’s competitions will not take place during the 34th national championships, with the focus turning to the youth ranks.

Victoria had a first round bye last Monday before beginning its campaign coming back from two goals down to defeat the Victorian under 23 team 3-2.

On Tuesday, Victoria lost to Boomerangs Blue 3-0. That night, Richardson scored a goal in a 4-4 draw with New South Wales Metro Lightning.

On Wednesday, Victoria lost to Boomerangs White 4-1 then lost to the NSW Metro under 23 side 7-0.

The team finished the round robin stage with a 6-0 loss to NSW Metro Thunder on Thursday.

Despite finishing the first stage in fifth place, Victoria advanced to the semi-finals with the NSW under 23 team, which came third, taking on its Victorian counterpart for the under 23 title.

The Victorian under 19 side lost its semi-final to eventual champion Boomerangs Blue, 4-0.

The only regional player in the Victorian squad, Richardson was selected in the state futsal squad for the fifth time. He has a national silver medal from a previous national championships.

Competing in the Wellington indoor tournament at the Gippsland Regional Sports Complex in both the men’s and mixed competitions, Richardson was invited to attend trials in Melbourne. He trained weekly until final selection into the squad two weeks ago.

Futsal is a five-a-side, fast and skilful sport and at the top level is exciting for both players and spectators. Many world class stars such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo learned their trade from joining futsal as juniors.

RAIN ruined any hopes Sale-Maffra had of claiming the under 15 title at cricket’s Junior Country Week in the Latrobe Valley last week.
Nanjing Night Net

Undefeated for the week, the side finished in third place behind winner Leongatha and Warragul.

Sale-Maffra won its first three games against Bairnsdale, Central Gippsland and Alberton to sit on top of the table, but fell to third place after a bye on Thursday.

Sale-Maffra needed an outright victory defeat Warragul on Friday to have a chance of finishing on top.

With rain expected in Traralgon, the match was moved to Yinnar.

Warragul scored an imposing 3-164 from its 50 overs, but Sale-Maffra never got the chance to bat with rain washing out play. Ironically, there wasn’t enough rain to wash-out play at Traralgon.

Leongatha finished on top, winning all four matches, including two outright.

The star of the week was Sale-Maffra’s Connor Hughes. The Sale City batsman scored a competition-high 198 runs at an average of 66, including a top score of 113 against Central Gippsland. Hughes also claimed 11 wickets, at an average of 6.45, with a best of 3-6.

Collegians’ Zac Hurley scored 103 runs for the week.

IN the under 14s, Sale-Maffra finished with two wins from five matches.

After winnings its first match against Central Gippsland on Monday, Sale-Maffra’s under 14 team lost its next three games.

On Thursday, the side lost to Traralgon.

Sale-Maffra was bowled out for 92 with Brendan Laird and captain Shaun May run out for 32 and 31 respectively. Traralgon replied with 7-132.

Sale-Maffra finished with victory over Bairnsdale on Friday.

Noah Hurley scored 47 not out and Jake Wynd 44 as Sale-Maffra finished on 8-182. Bairnsdale was then bowled out for 67 with Jonty McGuiness claiming 4-13.

Batting a second time, Sale-Maffra scored 6-59.

Warragul narrowly won the title ahead of Central Gippsland, Traralgon and Leongatha.

May was Sale-Maffra’s leading run-scorer, making 133 at 26.6, while Laird and Will Wayne claimed five wickets each.

Whyalla’s State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers were incredibly busy over the weekend thanks to the wet and windy weather.
Nanjing Night Net

SES Whyalla unit manager Tony Fahlbusch said on Thursday, January 8 the unit had about nine call outs while Friday saw volunteers attend about 25 calls.

Mr Fahlbusch said he was impressed with the initiative many residents were taking to call the unit and ask for advice about protecting their property.

“It was really good, people were being proactive and thinking ahead,” he said.

“They were aware of the rain we had on Thursday, and the forecast for the rain we were about to get, so people were starting to prepare their places and bracing for any amount of water that might come in.”

Mr Fahlbusch said SES was not only an emergency response team, but also an educational tool for what people can do in certain circumstances to protect their property from damage.

He said the unit used about 450 sandbags across the city to help prevent flooding, as well as helping to prevent water leaking through roofs.

“I’d advise people to have a look and make sure their gutters are clear and keep an eye on the news and weather to see what the bureau are forecasting,” he said.

Anticipating another wet week, Mr Fahlbusch encouraged locals to think ahead.

“Make sure that anything you don’t want to get damaged is up and out of the road, and have a basic emergency kit at home.”

Mr Fahlbusch said garbage bags could be turned into an easy sandbag alternative once filled with dirt from gardens.

“Make sure your gutters and downpipes are clear as well as any other guttering you may have around the place,” he said.

Mr Fahlbusch said some residents may have been confused about the services that the unit provides to the community.

He said the ultimate goal was to protect all homes as secondary areas were not a priority.

“Our responsibility is to protect the property – peoples’ houses, not peoples’ backyards, or patios or even sheds to a degree, we will do what we can,” he said.

EUROBODALLA and Shoalhaven local government area showed no change in median residential land values over the past year, according to the latest NSW Valuer General report.
Nanjing Night Net

Released on Saturday based on property sales, the valuations are one factor councils use to determine e each landholder’s rating liability.

The Eurobodalla posted a median land value of $155,000 in July, 2014, which was no change from the July 2013, value.

There were 23,821 valuations undertaken in the shire.

Shoalhaven’s $158,000 median land valuation was also unchanged from 56,579 valuations in the local government area.

Bega Valley’s median land value was $134,000 in July 2014 – up 0.75 per cent from $133,000 the previous year.

When it came to inland regional residential land, areas close to Canberra had the highest median land values of inland centres, with Queanbeyan

($266,000) the highest followed by Yass Valley ($172,000).

NSW Valuer General, Simon Gilkes said the value of land state-wide had increased by more than 11 per cent, exceeding $1.12 trillion.

“Almost 2.5 million residential, rural, business and industrial land values for properties in NSW were assessed,” Mr Gilkes said.

“Property sales are the most important factor considered when determining land values and valuers analysed over 43,000 property sales across NSW as at July 1 2014.

“Overall residential land values for NSW increased by 13.12 per cent in the 12 months to 1 July 2014, compared to a 3.21 per cent increase for the year to 1 July 2013.”

Over the coming weeks more than 882,000 Notices of Valuations will be sent to ratepayers in 45 LGAs, showing the value of residential, rural, business and industrial properties based on market conditions.

Mr Gilkes said the latest land values would help 45 local councils determine the amount of council rates landholders would pay.

“While important, valuations are only one of the factors councils use to determine each landholder’s rating liability,” he said.

“Increases or decreases in land values do not necessarily lead to similar increases or decreases in rates.”
