FRONT COVER STORY ...
Locals … PROTEST AGAINST
FRIVOLOUS TREE REMOVALS
Story & photo by Cllr Mick Gallagher of Mt Colah
Many locals from Hornsby
Shire, especially in the BeecroftCheltenham area, protested outside
NSW Parliament House on Tuesday
14 October 2014 against the
Government’s 10/50 Vegetation
Clearing Code.
This code allows the clearing in
certain areas of all trees within 10
metres of a dwelling, and scrub/bush
within 50 metres.
I’m sure the intent of the code
was to protect dwellings directly
ERUGHULQJEXVKODQGEXVK¿UHSURQH
areas, especially in rural areas.
The code’s wording however has
allowed vegetation removal in many
of our suburbs where many residents
consider the Code inappropriate for
our ‘Bushland Shire’.
The code over-rides tree protection
orders and heritage listings for
trees.
It is being used by some to remove
trees to enhance views and
development potential, in areas where
WKHUHLVQRLPSDFWRQEXVK¿UHVDIHW\
Comments made to The Bush
Telegraph Weekly by a tree lopper
working in the Hornsby Shire
FRQ¿UPHGWKDWVRPHUHVLGHQWV
were taking advantage of the 10/50 Code to remove trees for reasons
RWKHUWKDQ¿UHPLWLJDWLRQIRUH[DPSOHUHPRYDORIWUHHVREVWUXFWLQJ
scenic views.
The Code was rushed through the NSW parliament with the support of
the Liberal, Labor, & Shooters parties.
Now due to public pressure the NSW Government is reviewing the code
but for many the damage has already been done and will continue until the
Government repeals/amends the Code.
The issue was raised at the recent 2014 NSW Local Government
Conference in Coffs Harbour.
Whilst we await a positive outcome for our Bushland Shire, keep in contact
with your Premier and local State MP on this issue.
In the meantime, Hornsby Shire Council invites residents to attend a

FORMER PM LAUNCHES
BOOK AT HORNSBY RSL
Former Australian Prime
Minister John Howard visited
Hornsby RSL last week to
launch his new book and
support Hornsby State
Liberal MP Matt Kean’s reelection campaign.
Mr Howard spoke to a crowd of 400
in the RSL’s auditorium and was at
his ‘enigmatic best’ as he shared his
views on his new book titled “The
Menzies Era” written about Liberal
Party founder and former Prime
Minister Sir Robert Menzies.
Speaking candidly to the crowd,
Mr Howard took questions from the
ÀRRURQ0HQ]LHV¶UROHLQHQGLQJWKH
White Australia policy, engaging
with Asia to strengthen economic
ties, and discussing Menzies’
world-renowned leadership skills
to become Australia’s longest ever
serving Prime Minister.
Mr Howard said, “Australia is a
better place today for the valuable
role Menzies served in Government
for standing up for middleincome families and driving down
unemployment.”
Hornsby MP Matt Kean thanked
Mr Howard for his time and praised
the former leader saying that Mr
+RZDUGZDVDVWURQJLQÀXHQWLDO
leader who will be remembered
generations into the future.
“I am honoured to have Mr Howard
choose Hornsby to launch his new
book,” Mr Kean said.
After speeches were concluded Mr
Howard agreed to sit down for book
signings and photographs which
went for well over two hours.

Kids
Attention Deficit/
Hyperactivity
Disorder
Children with Attention Deficit/
Hyperactivity Disorder can have
difficulties with maintaining
concentration, organising themselves
and impulsivity. Forgetfulness,
daydreaming and having difficulty
slowing down or sitting still may also
be very difficult. It is important to note
that all children with AD/HD do not
have the same behaviours. Some
may be very active and always on
the go. Others may be daydreamers,
forgetful and quiet in class.
Such difficulties affect a child’s ability
to complete tasks in the classroom
and at home. Quite often, parents
and teachers of children with AD/HD
feel that the child has a great deal of
potential, but is just not able to reach
it because they have trouble staying
on task and finishing things.
So what can be done to help kids
with attention problems?
The first step is a thorough
assessment to determine if a child
has AD/HD and to understand
learning style, strengths and areas for
improvement.
A Child Psychologist can help
with parenting strategies,
classroom strategies and ideas to
make changes to tasks and the
environment around the child to
increase independence.
A Paediatrician can also support with
regular health reviews and work with
parents to determine if medication
may also help. By diagnosing a child
who has attention problems, many
things can then be done to help
the child realise their potential and
increase their confidence and selfesteem.

PRICELESS
PEARLS
By Ralph Estherby
A loud hiss, a cloud of steam and a
stream of scalding water announced
that my hot water heater needed to
be replaced. I don’t know why but
it seems like these things always
happen late at night!
I distinctly remember walking past
my hot water heater over the last
couple of weeks and not noticing
anything amiss...from the outside,
WKLQJVORRNHG¿QHDQGWKHUHZHUHQR
signs that “the end was near” but
on the inside obviously, a different
story was unfolding.
This was not a small leak but a
complete rupture of the system, there
was nothing to be done but to turn
the water off and to break the news
to the family that they would be at
least 1-2 days without hot water.
As I said, you would not have
been able to tell that anything was
wrong by looking on the surface
EXWVRPHWKLQJZDVGH¿QLWHO\QRW
healthy within. The problem is that
over time the steel tank of the water
heater starts to corrode and if left
unattended the integrity of the tank
is compromised; when you add the
fact that the hot water is under high
pressure, it only takes the smallest
KROHWREHFRPHDVLJQL¿FDQWSUREOHP

µVDFUL¿FLDODQRGH¶which is made of
a material that corrodes faster than
the steel in the tank and so extends
WKHOLIHRIWKHKHDWHUE\VDFUL¿FLQJ
itself…I only know this because
a couple of days ago I received a

I should have my hot water heater

day and come around and punch a
hole in your water heater the next
night? (Surely not??)
As I was having my cold shower this
morning the thought came to me
that although things can all look OK
on the outside what is happening on
the inside of our life may be quite
different. There are many things
which cause ‘corrosion’; things
done ‘to’ us and things done ‘by’
us. Given enough pressure even
the strongest will eventually crack
and leak and fail.
I am just so thankful that there is one
±-HVXV±ZKRZDVZLOOLQJWRVDFUL¿FH
Himself for me so that my failings,
weaknesses and shortcomings do
not determine my future no matter
what pressure I am exposed to.
I hope you don’t just look good on the
outside; maybe it is time to look within?

Kiki is a sweet happy
three year old Staffy X
Jack Russell girl who is
social with other dogs.
Founder of Doggie
Rescue, Monika Biernacki

loose lead and pays no
attention to cars but can
bark at some passing
dogs. She enjoys pats,
cuddles & the attention
of kids. She loves to
be picked up. She also
enjoys a run or jog.”
Kiki has a short coat
and weighs 9.2kg. She
comes desexed, C5
vaccinated, heartworm
free and microchipped.
Her adoption cost is $400.

‘Committed to healthy and
happy Pets’ is what it’s all
about at the recently opened
Hornsby Heights Vet Hospital.
The Hospital specialises in
both small animal and equine
services.
The Hospital offers the very
latest in house diagnostic
laboratory and medical imaging.
With boarding and grooming
available, and a spacious
outdoor area for boarding
animals to exercise and play
as well as plenty of convenient
onsite parking.
Principal Veterinarian Dr Mina
Ghaly has 15 years of experience
in both New South Wales and
Western Australia, from both city
and rural areas.
With further specialisation
in Microbiology and Equine
Dentistry, Dr Ghaly enjoys
treating a variety of small
animals and focuses on holistic
care of your pet to ensure
the best outcome is reached
every time. His primary area of
interests are diagnostic imaging
and small animal surgery and
dentistry.
Dr Ghaly was also fortunate
to have worked at The Horse
Hospital, Ascot Racing W.A where
he discovered a great fondness to
equine medicine and dentistry.
Dr Ghaly lives locally and with
a new baby girl born on the
opening day of the Hornsby
Heights Vet hospital, it’s a new
beginning and a promising start!

It is not necessary to put up with HEEL PAIN "says Mrs. Chard PODIATRIST.
There are several causes of heel pain the most common being PLANTAR FASCIITIS
Plantar Fasciitis is simply inflammation of the big strong band on the bottom of the foot
(the plantar fascia). Symptoms usually begin as a "stone bruise" type of pain increasing to
chronic pain especially first thing in the morning or after rest. Sometimes there may be a sense
that something tears or "gives" in the arch of the foot during sport.
This kind of pain is easily treated by realigning and supporting the foot and leg which reduces
the trauma allowing the injured foot to recover.
FOOT AND LEG PAIN prevents patients of all ages from enjoying daily exercise such as
walking thus creating a vicious cycle.
Pain - no exercise - weight increase - more pain. Results in High blood pressure, Diabetes,
Joint abuse, surgical replacements etc
An easy mobility program is specifically devised for individual patients to break the cycle and
return to a healthy lifestyle.
WE TREAT
Painful Feet, Heels, Legs, Knees, Hips and low Back Pain,
Corns, Calluses, Painful Toenails, Tines, Growing Pains.
