COUNCIL EVENTS + NEWS
I would like to begin by acknowledging the traditional
owners of this land, the Darug and Guringai people. I begin
every speech with these words and mean them, but they
have special significance this week as we prepare to
celebrate another Australia Day. Our day of national
reflection falls on the anniversary of European
settlement, but it is about far more than that
single event. Whether you’re firing up the
AUSTRALIA DAY
AT HORNSBY PARK
barbecue in your backyard or joining us at
one of Council’s events I urge everybody
to take some time out to celebrate this
11AM-3PM
great social melting pot we call home.
Celebrate Australia Day this year with your local community in beautiful
Hornsby Shire. There are two amazing free events for you and your family
to enjoy, with entertainment and activities in Hornsby Park along with an
Open Day at the Netherby Homestead, Fagan Park.

Respect for all users of our local

motorists and cyclists to show
respect and obey the road rules for
the safety of all.
It’s A Two-Way Street was launched
this month in Hornsby and Kuring-gai with the aim of addressing

promoting the campaign.
A recent spike in local cyclist

not only a harsh climate, but also
the rapacious acts of people who
invaded their islands.
To the Inuit people, living as they
did in the frozen North, life was
hard and frugal. They were a deeply
caring community, and their families
were loving. Tatchatka cared for his
family, and he had a deep love for
his wife and children.
Across the sea, to the West, living
on the coast was also hard—hot,
wet, and sticky in the summer
and very cold in the long, snowy
winter. This was not a loving
friendly community. Grigor had few
acquaintances and fewer roubles.
He had heard of a returning ship to
a village further north loaded with
sea otter furs. He cajoled the men
of his village to build a boat and sail
to the east. On reaching land, their
days were spent killing sea otter
and raping Inuit women at every
opportunity. This act shattered the
peace of the Inuits, who had little
contact with the outside world.
Tatchatka and other Inuits were
driven to anger and to seek revenge
on the intruders.

LETTERS
TO THE EDITOR
Dear Bush Tele,
I just read the letter from Charles
Rawson (TBTW 15/1/15).
Kerrie and I started a campaign
on Mental Health awareness in
1994. With the help of The Bush
Tele, Mental Health has become
mainstream.
All I know is that Bush Tele Editor
Kathie Comb is a good-minded
community person and has always
supported not only Mental Health
issues but all the issues that come
up in the community, especially in
the local area.
Charles, I hope you have a Happy
New Year.
Sean McArdle, Berowra Heights
Dear Bush Tele,
Further to the letter from Charles
Rawson (Bush Tele 14/01/2015)
I understand that it is nice to
consider newcomers to this country
and their religious and other beliefs
but I sometimes wonder if the
people who make decisions not to
offend these people, ever stop to
consider the feelings of those of us
who were born here and have spent
their lives here.
I was disgusted when some
childcare centres chose not to sing
Christmas carols in recent years in
case some people were offended
and when people complained about
nativity scenes being displayed at
some shops.
I suppose the decision-makers
don’t think that I could be offended
by the removal of these things that
have been part of Australia and
my heritage for decades or even
centuries.
It’s is good to be multicultural but
let’s also consider the feelings of
those Aussies who are proud of
their heritage and are proud to
show it to newcomers.
And as for ‘Merry Christmas’ - don’t
get me started !!! Happy Holidays
- bah humbug!!!!!
I’d also like to comment on the
removal of the Red Cross from
Hornsby - it’s terrible to think that
these people who have volunteered
to help others - are thought of as
disposable - absolutely astounds
me. Unfortunately, these same
people may not be available when
a call is put out for assistance in
times of disaster. The mental giants
who make these decisions probably
have never needed help and
probably have never volunteered
either.
I’m sure there must be somewhere
in the Hornsby area that can
accommodate these doyens of
our society that are so vital to the
continuing well-being of our society.
The CWA has been removed - let’s
not see the Red Cross go the same
way!!!!

Dear Bush Tele,
I was cycling through the Berowra
Waters Road/Crowley Road
roundabout on Sunday 11th
January, 2015 at approximately
4pm, turning right into Crowley
Road as per my signal.
A vehicle did not give way and
forced me into a calculated crash
involving laying the bike down in
RUGHUWRDYRLGVLJQL¿FDQWLPSDFW
with this white car. In spite of this,
the car still either hit my bike or
came very close to it (not sure
which).
When I was on the footpath
inspecting the damage to my body
and bike, after seeing the white
car turn around, I was anticipating
that they would park somewhere
appropriate and then check I was
OK.
Please contact The Bush Tele
for my contact details. I have no

Dear BushTele,
I was surprised and saddened
when a “Red Cross” volunteer told
me that the kiosk/shop at Hornsby
Railway Station will be closing by
the end of January 2015. It has a
one hundred year old history at the
Station. Why! Oh why! Is the place
closing down?
I understand that Red Cross

management is unwilling to
maintain a presence at the station
even though people in the Upper
North Shore support this Red Cross
Kiosk/shop.
It will be a shame and a denial
of history if the management is
prepared to turn its back on that
history in the name of progress.

LETTERS
TO THE EDITOR
Dear Bush Tele,
Thank you for your comments
about the loss of support for the
Red Cross Shop where volunteers
have served our community for so
many years, with support from an
enlightened local Council.
It is glaringly obvious that Councillor
Mick Gallagher is the only elected
member of our council so far to
demonstrate his support for local
volunteer groups such as the Red
Cross.
He is also the only councillor
who is free to act in the interests
of the voters who elected him,
LQGHSHQGHQWRILQÀXHQFHE\SROLWLFDO
parties and other interests. A
coincidence?
Most people need a blood
transfusion for themselves or a
relative at some critical time in their
lives.
How many of them appreciate that
we have the Red Cross to thank for
our impeccable blood transfusion
service that is envied by health
authorities world wide, and is only
one part of an endless range of
services that make our community
civilised.
And the Red Cross itself depends

volunteer groups such as the Red
Cross shops.
It might not be too early for voters to
shake off their apathy and contact
their elected politicians to remind
them that this is only the latest of
many current events which have
raised awareness of approaching
elections. ‘
So far, the new bridge is only an

Broken Bay sees its Largest
Kids’ Camp in 20 Years.
Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre last week held its largest
camp in 20 years.
Matt Kean MP said, “Trained staff ensured more than 245 children
attending the popular Hawkesbury River Centre enjoyed active
entertainment in a safe environment.”
“Instead of sitting at home in front of the telly, these children were out and
about enjoying a huge range of fun-filled activities,” Matt Kean said.
Summer also brings many water activities including slip ‘n’ slide, surf
skiing, raft building, swimming and a pool carnival.
This affordable camp includes abseiling, rock climbing, flying fox,
bushwalking, camping, cookouts, fishing, orienteering, archery,
basketball, beach volleyball, boomerangs and tennis.
“Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre has been providing this great
service to the community for more than 75 years,” said Matt Kean.
NSW Sport and Recreation is offering Kids’ Camps in 9 centres right
across the State ranging from one day programs to week-long residential
programs.

Smoking …
… is the largest single preventable cause of
death and disease in Australia. It is associated
with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke,
cancer as well as several other diseases.
But it’s never too late to quit. If you have tried
unsuccessfully to stop smoking before, this New
Year might be the time to give it another try.
Until recently, it was thought that stopping
smoking completely – either cold turkey or with
the help of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)
– was the best way to become a long term nonAlexandra Torrens
smoker. But this “quick stop” method doesn’t

Heights Pharmacy
The “cut down then stop” method is now
commonly used. Evidence has shown that
reducing the number of cigarettes smoked with the assistance of NRT,
makes it easier for some heavily addicted smokers to ultimately quit
completely.
The simultaneous use of more than one nicotine replacement therapy
product was once not considered appropriate. But experience has shown
that some smokers who continue to have cravings with single therapy, or

There are many myths and misconceptions about the effects of nicotine

products will suit you best. Contact Hornsby Heights Pharmacy on 9987

SOCIAL SNIPPETS
PRICELESS
PEARLS
By Ralph Estherby
Not a single one left and it was only
6:45am… My wife and I are enjoying the
last couple of days of our holiday at a very
nice resort on the Gold Coast. The weather
is living up to expectations and we are
enjoying using all the facilities and whilst the
resort team are managing the substantial
crowds well… there is one problem we have
encountered.
The resort pool caters for about 150 sun
lounges but we have not been able to ‘claim’
a couple during the time we have been here.
Whenever we want to have a swim, read or
have a refreshment by the pool… all of the
lounges have been taken.
People have placed their towel, book or
some other possession on ‘their longue’ and
there are no options left. The frustrating thing
is that often these people are nowhere to be
seen and they are not even in sight of the
pool – they have a prime seat but they are
doing nothing with it!
This morning I was determined to make an
attempt to claim a couple of lounges –
I went for my run at 6am and then headed
straight for the pool…to my surprise every
longue had already been claimed! I wonder
how early the others had to get up? I have
images of people camping out before the
dawn making sure that their spot is assured.
As I have said, I wouldn’t mind if they actually
spent some time sitting on them!
As I get ready to head back to work and
normal life next week it made me think about
the various ‘seats’ I have in my life… my work
- my family - my church - my friendships and
relationships.
I don’t want to make the great ‘longue chair’
mistake as I walk into 2015. That is when
you fail to make the most of the opportunities
that you have and you get busy doing other
things. You take for granted the wonderful
position you have and you get distracted and
because of this, others miss out.
They may be some big challenges ahead
in the ‘seats’ in your life; you may even
feel a little overwhelmed and maybe a little
discouraged but remember that you always
have the option of assistance if you are
willing to ask for it!
“Be strong and of good courage, and do it;
do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD
God—my God—will be with you. He will not
leave you nor forsake you, until you have
finished all the work…”1 Chronicles 28:20

‘CANBERRA FIDDLES WHILE
FIRES BURN’ – Australian
Koala Foundation
Like many seeing the fires rage in South Australia, the Australian Koala
Foundation (AKF) is deeply concerned about the fate of Koalas.
While no one knows exactly how many animals died in the fires,
assessment from the AKF suggests that fewer Koalas might have been
impacted than expected – probably less than 50.
AKF’s CEO, Deborah Tabart OAM said, “This is a good thing, but does
not mean that the Koalas in South Australia are safe long term.”
“It is ironic that we have politicians of all persuasions tweeting about
Koalas burnt in the fire, but not one of them appreciates the need for a
Koala Protection Act,” Deborah Tabart said.
“It’s important to ask why Koalas in this area do not enjoy the protection
of the Federal Government. When the Koala was listed as Federally
Threatened Species in May 2012, Koalas in Victoria and South Australia
were specifically excluded from protection,” said Deborah Tabart.
Under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act
1999, a decline in numbers of 30% or more was needed for a national
listing, according to Ms Tabart.
“Shockingly, Koalas in Victoria and South Australia missed out on
better protection by 1%, with the committee recommending against the
protection of these Koalas after a conclusion of their decline being at
29%,” she said.
In 2010, the committee concluded that there were approximately
100,000 Koalas in Victoria. In 2012 this estimate more than doubled
to 215,000. Numbers from the AKF suggest as few as 19,000-35,000
Koalas.
By more than doubling the Koala estimate in Victoria in 2012, the
committee ensured that Koalas would not be protected. If they had
picked 150,000, or 180,000, the Koala would be protected.
The AKF suggests that Australians and the Federal Government need
to appreciate that catastrophic events like the recent bushfire have a
greater and greater impact on threatened species as numbers decline.
“The AKF is not asleep and watching closely. The Koala is on the way
to localised extinctions on a daily basis, and Canberra fiddles while the
fires burn,” Deborah Tabart said.
www.savethekoala.com
The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is the principal non-profit,
non-government organisation dedicated to the conservation and
effective management of the wild koala and its habitat.

Time to tackle TOXIC TICKS
With the high season for ticks upon us the Australian Veterinary Association
(AVA) is encouraging pet owners to prevent serious harm or death by checking
their pets regularly for ticks.
“Dog and cat owners must be vigilant at this time of year, particularly when
travelling to tick prone coastal areas,” said AVA spokesperson Dr Robert
Johnson.
“There are a range of preventive tick products available. For people living in or
going to tick prone areas with their pets they should contact their local vet who
can advise on the best prevention method for their situation,” Dr Johnson said.
Paralysis ticks tend to attach to the head and neck area of the pet and on the
chest and the front of the leg, but can be found on any part of the body.
Ticks release a toxin when they feed, which leads to a condition known as tick
paralysis. Common signs of tick paralysis include difficulty walking, gurgling
and choking. Dogs will often not be able to bark properly due to paralysis of the
throat.
Other animals may start to cough when eating or drinking, or may cough up
water or food. Some may also have trouble breathing.”
Ideally pet owners should check dogs and cats daily. This is done by running
your hands over the animal to feel for anything unusual. In cats, ticks often latch
around the back of the neck where they can’t groom, so it’s important to pay
special attention to this area.
If you find a tick it’s vital you take action and contact your local vet for advice.
“Even if you find and remove a tick it’s important to keep an eye on your pet
as they can be affected by the toxin for up to 24 hours after removal. Early
treatment gives the best chance of survival,” Dr Johnson said.
