Boating and fishing enthusiasts are set to gain more access than ever to Blue Rock Lake under a proposal to open the popular summer watering hole up to recreational fishers.
Nanjing Night Net

Southern Rural Water wants to remove its long-standing speed restriction of five knots across the lake and increase the limit on vessel length and engine size.

But the changes would also mean the creation of a new rule prohibiting water-skiers and personal water craft like jet skis.

SRW manager water supply east Terry Clapham said the need for change was driven by public demand.

“The lake is an important part of the Victorian bass recreational fishing scene, and we’ve been approached by many clubs and angling groups asking for changes that would allow more vessels to access the lake,” Mr Clapham said.

“Very few boats today comply with our current boating restrictions, which effectively stops many anglers from using the lake.”

Blue Rock Lake is home to Australian Bass and introduced trout species.

Mr Clapham said the lake’s existing rules were put in place when the reservoir was first built in 1984 because of the instability of the new banks and the risk of erosion.

“There is now well-developed vegetation along the edge of Blue Rock Lake, including a 30 metre filtration zone, so faster speeds are no longer seen as a risk.”

However, he said a 2009 assessment found water skiing and personal water craft use posed an “unacceptable risk” to water quality and more recent workshops with stakeholders had confirmed this.

“Blue Rock Lake is used to provide water to the Latrobe Valley electricity generators, but it is also used by Gippsland Water as a source of drinking water to supplement Moondarra Reservoir.”

Under the proposed changes the engine size limit for vessels would be increased from 7.5KW to 22KW. Copies of the proposal are available from SRW’s office at 88 Johnson Street, Maffra during business hours and on their website, www.srw南京夜网.au

Submissions should be made in writing to

[email protected]南京夜网.au or PO Box 153, Maffra, 3860 before

3 February.

SRW will evaluate public submissions and present its final changes to Transport Safety Victoria for approval.

Ellodie Reid, Maggie O’Keefe, Mikaela Cornelissen and Georgia Tsebelis won silver in the 18 years 21 x 100m freestyle relay.A HAUL of 33 medals and 20 records saw Traralgon Swimming Club emerge from the recent Victorian Age Championships as number one country club and fourth in the state.
Nanjing Night Net

The club achieved five gold, 18 silver and 10 bronze medals, along with 19 Gippsland and one country record at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

Senior head coach Brian Ford was ecstatic with the result.

“We had (our) biggest representation ever with 46 individual swimmers,” Ford said.

“The goal was to finish top five in the state so to come fourth and comfortably ahead of most of the other Metropolitan clubs was an amazing achievement.

“It is a testament to our quality of swimmers, coaches and parents for our goal to be realised and surpassed.”

Sixteen swimmers shared in the medals and the best performance came from 17 year-old Georgia Tsebelis in her last competition for the club prior to joining the army.

Georgia won one gold (50 metre freestyle – 26.56 seconds) and four silvers (100m backstroke – 1.04.31, 200m individual medley – 2.23.90, 200m backstroke – 2.20.80 and 100m free – 58.27), with four Gippsland records.

Mikaela Cornelissen (16) again had a successful meet with gold in the 100m butterfly (1.01.99) and three silvers (100m back – 1.04.86, 50m free – 26.64, 100m free – 58.64).

Connor O’Neill (14) won gold in the 200m back in a breakthrough time of 2.11.68 and followed it up with a 1.02.36 in the 100m back for bronze.

Connor O’Neill won gold in the 14 years 200m backstroke.

The other gold medallist was Lauren Akers (14), who won the 100m fly (1.05.82) and gained silver in the 400IM (5.20.25) and bronze in the 200IM (2.30.04).

Consistent 14 year-old Alex Tsebelis swam several finals to finish with a silver in the 100m fly (1.00.39) in Gippsland record time, while 16 year-old Caiden Gill, the fastest swimmer to ever come out of Gippsland, won silver in the 50m free (23.54) and 100m free (51.69), the latter a new Gippsland record.

Ellodie Reid (14) showed she was back on track after a shoulder injury with silver in the 200m back (2.21.51), 400m free (4.33.36) and 200m free (2.10.46).

Harliai Curthoys-Davies, the club’s satellite swimmer from Swan Hill, won silver in the 100m back (1.15.25) and bronze in the 200m back (2.43.87) and Jordyn Cargill, an up and coming 10 year-old, won bronze in the 11 years and under 100m fly (1.15.73).

This was also a Gippsland record and together with records in the 50m free (31.17), 200m fly (3.01.66), 200IM (2.51.89) set five new marks in total.

The final record breaking swims came from 10 year-old Caydence Bezzina, who swam the 11 years and under 100m back in 1.17.86 and went faster again in the final (1.17.84).

Traralgon’s relay teams were again competitive winning two silver and three bronze medals.

The boys’ 14 years relay teams of Alex Tsebelis, Locke DeGaris, Mitchell and Connor O’Neill won silver in the 4x50m free relay (1.43.87) – a new Gippsland and Country record – and bronze in the 4x50m medley relay (1.57.30).

The four girls in the 14 years free relay – Alice Peddle, Lauren Akers, Ellodie Reid and Melina DeCort – won bronze in the 4x50m free relay (1.52.90).

Alice Peddle, Ellodie Reid, Lauren Akers and Melina deCort.

Ellodie then joined Mikaela Cornelissen, Georgia Tsebelis and Maggie O’Keefe to win silver in the 18 years and under 4x100m free relay (3.57.76).

The boys 16 years 4x100m free team of Caiden Gill, Mitch O’Neill, Riley Akers and Alex Tsebelis also came home in a record time of 3.42.72.

The club now turns its focus to the Victorian Open Championships this month, followed by the most important country competition for the year – the Victorian Country Championships to be held in Geelong over the Australia Day weekend where the club will be vying for its 15th win in 16 years.

“Country Championships is the pinnacle of Country swimming and we are planning for a big meet from our team,” Ford said.

“We are going for a record number of wins and our swimmers will be working hard to achieve our team’s goals.”

US/Australian shows launched

Essential 11, the LA-based production arm of Australian production company Essential Media, has three series launching in the US this month and two more in development. Two shows, Backflip and Texas Flip’n’Move, launch on the DIY channel this week, with a third, Fools Gold, launching next week on Animal Planet. They also have a pilot, Three Dads and A House, in production for the HGTV channel and another series, a hidden camera show titled Made Up, in post-production for the Disney Channel.

Steamy stuff

The cable drama channel Showcase has bought the Australian rights to the US drama series The Affair. The series, which “explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship”, stars Dominic West as a New York schoolteacher and novelist, Noah Solloway, who becomes involved with a young woman, Alison (Ruth Wilson). The series also stars Maura Tierney, as Noah’s wife Helen, and Joshua Jackson, as Cole, Alison’s husband. CBS Studios produced 10 one-hour episodes of the series for the US channel Showtime.

Netflix’s offerings

The streaming service Netflix has confirmed it will produce a second season of its adventure drama Marco Polo. The series, which follows “the famed explorer’s exploits in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th-century China”, was created by John Fusco and stars Australian actor Remi Hii. The series also stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Zhu Zhu, Chin Han, Olivia Cheng and Tom Wu. Marco Polo’s first season was filmed in Malaysia, Kazakhstan and Italy and produced by The Weinstein Company. It will be among Netflix’s offerings when the service launches in Australia in March.

Diary these launch dates

Still with Netflix, the streaming company announced a handful of series of launch dates for 2015 at the bi-annual Television Critics Association programming showcase in Los Angeles. Those dates, which prospective Australian customers might want to mark in their diaries, include the Tina Fey-produced comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (March 6), the drama Bloodline, which stars Australian actor Ben Mendehlson (March 20), Marvel’s Daredevil (April 10) and the Jane Fonda/Lily Tomlin comedy Grace and Frankie (May 8).

Absolutely fabulous, Darling

When the film version of Absolutely Fabulous finally premieres it may well lay claim to the title: “20 years in the making”. The creator and star of the iconic British comedy, Jennifer Saunders, has told British media that the much-discussed film spin-off will likely happen this year. “I’ve finished the first draft; I’m feeling euphoric,” she said. “My proper New Year’s resolution is to do the film, otherwise it’ll be a pointless year of procrastination. Saunders and co-star Joanna Lumley have hinted at a film for almost a decade.

ABC Political Editor appointed

The ABC has named journalist Chris Uhlmann to the post of ABC Political Editor. The ABC’s head of newsgathering Craig McMurtrie said the role, which spans all of the ABC’s platforms, was “a crucial on-air role and Chris is uniquely suited for it”. Uhlmann has worked for Fairfax’s Canberra Times, and has served as presenter of AM, a reporter for ABC News 24 and co-host and political editor of 7.30. In a statement issued by the ABC, Uhlmann said he was “blessed to work with journalists who personify … integrity and experience”.

ALBURY cyclist Neil van der Ploeg unleashed a brilliant ride to finish third in the Australian road cycling championship yesterday.
Nanjing Night Net

Riding for the domestic Avanti team, van der Ploeg trailed home winner Heinrich Haussler and Caleb Ewan in the 183.6km race at Buninyong near Ballarat.

Haussler, who rides for newly-promoted WorldTour team IAM cycling, rejoined the lead group with only 3km left and outsprinted Ewan at the end of the men’s elite road race.

The race came down to a group of seven on the last of 18 laps.

Race favourites Cadel Evans and Richie Porte were never at the front of the event.

A break of 18 riders put Evans and Porte out of contention in the last couple of laps.

That break was whittled down to the seven riders who contested the finish.

It is a massive result for Haussler, who won stage 13 in the 2009 Tour de France.

He also finished runner-up the same year at the Tour of Flanders and Milan Sanremo classics, two of cycling’s biggest one-day races.

But a knee injury hobbled him in 2010 and he has struggled for consistent form in the past few seasons.

His only win last season was a stage victory in the Bayern-Rundfahrt, a German stage race.

Haussler has a German father and Australian mother and was raised in the NSW country town of Inverell.

He went to Germany at the age of 14 to pursue his dream of becoming a professional cyclist.

Haussler switched to an Australian racing licence in 2010.

It was also another great result for Ewan, who is 20 and in his first full season as a WorldTour professional.

Ewan also won silver in Wednesday’s criterium.

His two second places were the only podium finishes for the powerful Orica-GreenEDGE and Orica-AIS women’s teams at these nationals.

The powerful GreenEDGE organisation has dominated the nationals since they started in 2012.

“This will be a watershed election”: Unions NSW secretary Mark Lennon. Photo: Brendan EspositoNSW unions and the Labor Party are mounting aggressive grassroots campaigns against the Baird government’s plans to privatise electricity, education and health services.
Nanjing Night Net

Union leaders say the state election campaign will be their most consolidated in history.

It aims to engage the community directly at train stations and through door knocking, street stalls, letter-box drops and telephone calls. It is modelled on a similar strategy that was successfully used to unseat the government in Victoria last year. It also borrows tactics used in US President Barack Obama’s campaigns.

Unions NSW secretary Mark Lennon said unions would campaign for quality public services, jobs, and against the Baird government’s agenda to privatise electricity network “poles and wires” , hospitals and TAFE.

“This will be a watershed election in NSW. It will be about whether we are going to accept as a community that the government’s role is simply to allow more and more of the private sector to provide public services, or are we going to make a stand, and say ‘no’,” he said.

“We don’t have a problem with the private sector, but it’s a question of degree. This government is privatising by stealth.

“We are yet to see privatisation of electricity assets that have been to the benefit of the community at large. “

NSW Teachers Federation president Maurie Mulheron said teachers would campaign against the Baird government’s public sector wage freeze that meant teachers were losing money in real terms.

“We are calling on the state government to lift the 2.5 per cent salary cap and allow teachers and public sector unions access to the industrial relations commission so we can have independent arbitration of salary levels, which we have been denied,” he said.

“The privatisation of TAFE is going to be a central campaign.

“We’ve already seen over a thousand teaching and other positions lost out of the system, and courses rationalised.

“We will support the broader Unions NSW campaign against privatisation in hospitals, electricity and TAFE. “It will be based on what they did in Victoria with a lot of door knocking and taking the issues directly to the people.”

NSW Labor general secretary Jamie Clements said the ALP would build on its successful grassroots campaign before the 2013 federal election.

Labor targeted the ethnic vote and used Obama-style campaign tactics to directly contact undecided voters – using a call centre in Parramatta – to prevent an expected electoral wipeout in western Sydney.

Mr Clements said NSW would import strategies from Victoria, where Labor successfully campaigned over cuts to hospital and education services.

“We’ll be making an unprecedented investment in our field campaign,” Mr Clements said.

“We’ll be having one-on-one conversations with the voters and driving up volunteer numbers.”

In the 2013 federal election, Labor recaptured ethnic community votes lost in 2010.

In the seat of Fowler, where 22 per cent of the community speaks Vietnamese, Labor candidate Chris Hayes achieved a 9.51 per cent swing in his favour.

In Werriwa, which Labor feared it might lose, Laurie Ferguson contacted ethnic communities by direct mail with a personal message in the last days of his campaign. He also spoke on numerous community language radio programs.

While the overall swing against Mr Ferguson was 3.95 per cent, polling booths in areas with a strong Bangladeshi community, such as Minto South, achieved a 2 per cent swing in his favour.

Mr Ferguson said former NSW Liberal Party leader Barry O’Farrell showed a stronger interest in multiculturalism in 2011 than his successor, Premier Mike Baird, has shown.

“O’Farrell was everywhere in ethnic Australia,” Mr Ferguson said.

Mr Baird said the Coalition government had created more than 40,000 jobs in western Sydney since it came to office in 2011.

“To support the economy and future growth, we are building the largest infrastructure projects in Australia, many of which will directly benefit western Sydney, including WestConnex and a second Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek,” he said.

“We are improving services in western Sydney, including 5600 extra weekly transport services, an additional 775 nurses, 688 new police officers and an additional 456 teachers.

“[T]he funds released through a lease of the poles and wires will deliver Sydney Rapid Transit, all the way from outer north-west Sydney, under the harbour and out to Bankstown.

“NSW Labor took western Sydney for granted for decades.”
