Story by Malcolm Bruce Some History Hornsby Heights Rural Fire Brigade was formed on the 1st March 1965 as a result of public submissions to Hornsby Shire Council and was originally known as 7KH*RUJH%XVK¿UH%ULJDGH. The formation of the Brigade was result of the hard work by one of the original members, Kevin Williams, who conducted a door-knock campaign in Hornsby Heights, to see if there was interest in forming a local brigade. So, on the 1st March 1965 at the public school in Somerville Road, +RUQVE\+HLJKWV7KH*RUJH%XVK¿UH%ULJDGHZDVIRUPHG There was a dearth of equipment and the Brigade was in desperate need IRUD¿UH¿JKWLQJYHKLFOHDQGDOOWKHRWKHUHTXLSPHQWWKDWJRHVWRPDNH DEXVK¿UHEULJDGH7RPDNHGRWKH%ULJDGHREWDLQHGD+LOOPDQVHGDQ ZKLFKWKH\FRQYHUWHGLQWRDWHPSRUDU\³¿UHWUXFN´XQWLODQHZEXVK¿UH tanker could be sourced. Instead of a new tanker, in 1966 the Brigade was presented with Arcadia %XVK¿UH%ULJDGH¶VROGWDQNHUa 1942 Chevrolet Blitz, which had been sitting in the open for several years and had a small tree growing in the cabin. The Brigade spent many hours to bring the 1942 Chevrolet Blitz EDFNLQWR¿UH¿JKWLQJRUGHU This 1942 Blitz became known as Puff the Tragic Waggon. Over the years the Brigade and original Puff became separated and HDFKQHZEXVK¿UHWDQNHUSURYLGHGIRUWKH%ULJDGHEHFDPHNQRZQDV Puff. The Brigade found the original Puff in a disassembled state on a farm in Mudgee in 2000. After many years of hard work the veteran members of the Brigade restored Puff the Tragic Waggon to a better than new condition and Puff can now be seen, representing the Rural Fire Service, across Sydney (see front cover photo). 7KH%ULJDGH¿UVWVDZUHDODFWLRQODWHULQ ZKHQDODUJHEXVK¿UH started in the valley to the south of Galston Road and then threatened Hornsby.

Most changes commenced on 15 January 2015 including licensing, owner-builders, home building compensation fund and disputes, defects and statutory warranties. Further amendments concerning contract requirements will commence on 1 March 2015. The changes to ownerbuilders are as follows: owner-builders are required to name all other owners of the land on an application for an ownerbuilder permit. This is recorded on the permit to prevent people using this system to carry out commercial unlicensed building work. Any owners named cannot apply for another owner-builder permit for a different property for 5 years; owner-builders are prohibited from getting a permit for a dual occupancy except in special circumstances; owner-builders are not able to get statutory insurance although contractors working for the owner-builder still need to provide FHUWL¿FDWHVIRUZRUNRYHU If the property is sold within the warranty period, the contract for sale must clearly state that there is no statutory insurance on the SURSHUW\DQG¿QDOO\WKHWKUHVKROG for requiring an owner-builder permit has increased to work valued over All owner-builders must provide evidence of having done basic work health and safety training, and for ZRUNRYHUWKH\ZLOOQHHGWR do an owner-builder course.

Not when you have a million cubic PHWUHVRI¿OO Last week, with an election approaching, we learned that after more than twenty years of pain, responding to endless invitations to meaningless presentations, µZRUNVKRSV¶DQG¿HOGYLVLWVWR learn more than we ever wanted to know about Hornsby Quarry, all at ratepayers’ expense, we were invited to donate even more of our valuable time and expertise to make written submissions to a series of new, hare-brained schemes to spend more of our hard earned money …. We are now to enjoy a further two years of pain, watching another PLOOLRQRIRXUPRQH\EHQH¿WWKH winner of a lucrative contract for a new road tunnel we didn’t know we wanted. We are also told to believe it is good news that in addition to the LQWROHUDEOHDGGLWLRQRI¿IW\ELJWUXFNV an hour past our homes for two years, thousands of innocent victims who remain can expect to have their lives shortened from breathing the poisonous exhaust gas that will be permanently produced by all these big trucks in the tunnel. If this is good news, it is hard to imagine bad news. Perhaps it is also good news that we are spared access to read the history of life in this Shire since the demise of the quarry. Before Hornsby Council became the unlicensed owner of the quarry, the quarry operator had the foresight to recognise its end, and made a generous offer to sell the valuable space to dispose of millions RIWRQQHVRI¿OOUHVXOWLQJIURP developments planned at the time, ZLWKPLOOLRQVRIGROODUVRISUR¿WVWR be shared with the ratepayers of Hornsby. The same operator, with a UHFRUGRIRSHUDWLQJDSUR¿WDEOH quarry for decades, had good UHDVRQWREHFRQ¿GHQWWR provide a tunnel that would eliminate the need for tens of thousands of truck movements through the neighbourhood, and complete one more SUR¿WDEOHH[HUFLVH Are the voters of Hornsby Shire really as gullible as this? $UHWKH\ÀDWWHUHGWROHDUQWKDW at least one candidate believes they are?

An emeritus professor at UNSW, he has a career in research, teaching and management spanning over 30 years. John cofounded Solar Mobility Pty Ltd., a Thornleigh-based manufacturer of electric mobility scooters for people with disabilities. He has lived with his wife in Hornsby since 1998. They have two daughters, now grown up. For recreation, John sails on the Hawkesbury River and Broken Bay. He is a keen native gardener with a love of music. John is passionate about minimising harmful climate change. This means weaning Australia off fossil fuels, and promoting a thriving, sustainable economy based on renewable energy. He wants to reduce social inequity in all its forms, by properly funding public education, public health, public transport and public housing. And, as a scientist, he is keen to bring reasoned, thoughtful debate back into Australian politics. NSW has come a long way since the Coalition entered Government in 2011. Prior to 2011, we had the highest rate of unemployment, we had the slowest rate economic growth, and we had a $30 billion infrastructure backlog. Locally things were not as they should be either. We remember the horror stories about Hornsby Hospital, while important issues such Pennant Hills Road and Hornsby Quarry were ignored. The Coalition has commenced work on the North West Rail Link, connecting Galston and Cowan to the Sewerage System and Rebuilding our Hospital. But there is still far more to do. I am asking for you to support our positive plan for NSW and for Hornsby. If a Baird Liberal Government is re-elected we will: complete the rebuild of Hornsby hospital with an additional $200 million; we will build 270 additional commuter car parking spaces at Hornsby DQG$VTXLWK6WDWLRQVZHZLOO¿[ Pennant Hills Road by building 1RUWK&RQQH[DQGZHZLOO¿QDOO\¿[ the Hornsby Quarry turning it into the Centennial park of our district. Like so many of you, I have spent 25 wonderful years living and raising a family in Hornsby. I love this area: it is unique and special. For too long Hornsby has been treated like an afterthought. We deserve the best roads, schools, hospital and train stations, just like the rest of Sydney. Hornsby is changing rapidly and we must have the infrastructure in place to cope with this. Whether we are talking about privatizing our electricity network or selling off child care and community centres, these assets belong to us, not political parties. Local families do not want to pay more for these services. People want better services, not cuts. They want representatives that genuinely consult and listen. They want representatives that put \RXULQWHUHVWV¿UVW I will get this done. I will work hard every day to make Hornsby matter and I will not let you down.

Landowners of Brooklyn and surrounding areas have had a say on their future, taking part in a survey by Hornsby Shire Council that asked them to identify their values and vision for the area. Issues that were rated as most important by survey respondents ZHUHWUDI¿FWUDQVSRUWDQG SDUNLQJIROORZHGE\ZDWHUZD\V and environmental health. When asked what they valued most about Brooklyn, the majority of respondents nominated the village FKDUDFWHUDQGORRNDVZHOODVWKH river and the surrounding natural environment. “I would like to thank the 257 people ZKRWRRNWKHWLPHWR¿OOLQWKH survey, giving us a strong sense of the community’s feelings,” Hornsby Shire Mayor Steve Russell said.

The survey results will contribute WRWKHLGHQWL¿FDWLRQRIDSODQQLQJ strategy for Brooklyn that will outline work that needs to be done to meet community expectations. Survey Snapshot More than 80 percent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed with the following statements: The public domain like parks and roads are a key part of Brooklyn’s amenity; Brooklyn’s heritage character needs to be protected; Waterway health and environmental issues are priorities; Hornsby and Gosford councils and the State Government should jointly address commuter berthing and waterfront access; The State Government should fund local infrastructure because it’s also used by people from outside Hornsby Shire; Developers should contribute towards or provide new and improved local infrastructure.

During this Term’s Well-being Week, one of the parents led a get up and go session for all students and teachers. “The kids loved it,“ Principal Bernard Cumming said. “We try to offer different activities for the children during our ‘well-being week’. Learn More about your Family History at Hornsby Library Learn more about your heritage with the help of a newly formed family history research group. After a community notice appeared in The Bush Tele Weekly, WKH¿UVW meeting of the group was held with 38 people attending. One of our new Mums teaches Zumba and she kindly volunteered to run a session for the whole school!” The group meets every third Wednesday at 2pm in the library to explore topics relating to family history research and use the library’s resources with the help of staff Neil Chippendale and Karen Richardson.

The State Liberal member for Hornsby, Matt Kean, claims a deal has already been struck to develop the Quarry area using excavated waste from the NorthConnex tunnel project. “Mr Kean claims to have negotiated the funding, although his pronouncement hasn’t been accompanied by the customary Ministerial endorsement that should accompany such a deal,” said Mr Ackerman. Labor candidate for Hornsby, Steve Ackerman called for an open and transparent disclosure of plans and funding details for the proposal. “Mr Kean proposes spending $22 million of public money to create one of the most expensive parks in Sydney,” Mr Ackerman said. “Hornsby residents are asking for an Environmental Impact Assessment to be carried out following advice that Hornsby will have to cope with an estimated 60 truck and trailer movements per day, eight hours a day for up to two years,” said Mr Ackerman. Hornsby council has claimed that to stabilize the Quarry walls could cost up to $100 Million dollars, however, Mr Kean’s proposal makes no mention of this cost. An earlier option to create a recreational lake at the Quarry site has been put forward by Dr Charles Gerrard, a former Professor of Mining Engineering. “Dr Gerrard’s plan was to stabilize the site using material in the quarry walls. This would mean not a single noisy haul truck would have to pass over Hornsby roads,” said Mr Ackerman. “It isn’t the local member’s job to solve Hornsby Council’s quarry conundrum,” Mr Ackerman said. SMALL BUSINESS OWNER TOPS SEARCH ENGINES WITH ONE VIDEO HORNSBY YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETITION 2015 We’re delighted to announce details of our second annual Hornsby Young Artists Competition. Thanks to the generosity of our major sponsor Sydney Art School, and the fantastic support of Jadele Framing, we’re able to offer $2500 in prizes across five categories for young artists aged 5 - 24 years. This event is part of the International Year of Light. Entry Forms are available on our Facebook Page or from www. hornsbyartsociety.com.au Entries Close 2 April 2015. A small business owner in Hornsby increased his sales to website visitors by over 70% by putting a professionallymade video on his website. Being on the internet was once optional for small business owners, but is now essential. In much the same way having a professionally made video on a business website is fast become the norm. Search engines like Google love video and rank websites higher if they have video. And customers are 80% more likely to transact with a business that has a well-made video. “Video, done properly, increases search engine rankings and conversion rates. It also enhances the image of the business and helps build trust with customers,” said Tony from Web Video Central. Web Video Central is a Hornsby-based company that specialises in producing affordable, effective marketing videos for small business websites and offers a free initial consultation.

For the most part, I work with a large group of people I know fairly well, the rest of the time I walk around with a nametag on my uniform so introductions are unnecessary. But every now and then I get formally introduced to a new group of people (usually when I am making a presentation or teaching a class). I find these introductions interesting – they usually start with your name and then list your qualifications or the experience that is relevant to the situation you are in. They list your achievements and they may bring up something interesting regarding your personal life or even try to mine a gem from the past that makes for interesting discussion. This is all for a good reason – they want the audience to understand who you are and the reason you have a right to be standing in front of them today – it is to build credibility and to hopefully open a doorway to those you are trying to communicate with. If I asked you to write a short Bio, summing up yourself in a few sentences, what would you write? Would you list the roles you play – father, mother, coach, friend – would you list your skills and qualifications – MBA, PHD, WDW (washes dishes well) – would you list hobbies, interests or just something quirky? How you see yourself is often very different to how others perceive you: You may think that you are nice and friendly but the people you deal with may have an opposing opinion; you may think that you are the life of the party, you are fun to be around and everyone is pleased to see you – but is that what others see? Whilst we should always be comfortable in our own skin, it is important to understand what others see in us. Jesus asked this question: “Who do men say that I am?” His disciples answered “Some say you are one of the prophets, John the Baptist or Jeremiah…” Jesus obviously displayed attributes of all of them but He pressed the question further “Who do you say that I am?” As we approach Easter just a week away I would encourage you to ask yourself two questions – “Who am I really?” and …“Who is He?” DO YOU HAVE A COMMENT OR A QUESTION?

Twitter. Instagram. WhatsApp. Messenger. YouTube. … Students are always CONNECTED CONNECTED is a new Australian musical by Craig Christie written specifically for today’s students as a way of highlighting the issues and effects surrounding cyber bullying. It is intended to stimulate discussion and showcase the sometimes unintended consequences of cyber activities. CONNECTED premiered at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and this all new Australian production was launched in Sydney on 24th November, 2014 at a special cyber safety event for teachers, students, parents and industry. CONNECTED is an exciting and engaging theatrical production that uses an energetic, fast paced narrative and an edgy original contemporary musical soundtrack to demonstrate in live action what the consequences of cyber bullying can be, rather than just being an instructive program. Often kids think they are just being funny, not realising the unintended consequences. Peer pressure usually plays a huge role as well. All these themes are covered in the show. Creator and former teacher Craig Christie wrote CONNECTED after the daughter of a friend was involved in a cyber-bullying incident. We know that at least 1 in 5 children are or have been the target of a cyberbully and it is estimated that some 463,000 young Australians were targeted by cyberbullies in 2013. Students who are bullied suffer from higher rates of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, reduced concentration and helplessness. It is also a contributory factor in youth suicide. Studies commissioned by the Australian Federal Government acknowledge that the best form of addressing the issues surrounding cyberbullying amongst youth is via the school environment. Connected is a memorable and powerful method to achieve this awareness in the school environment and educate Australia’s youth about being cyber smart and staying safe online. CONNECTED from Origin On Stage in association with Theatre One Productions is now open for bookings for in-school performances and special student/parent performances. Schools can book their preferred dates by downloading the booking form via www.connectedthemusical.com.au Web: www.connectedthemusical.com.au Facebook: www.facebook.com/ConnectedTheMusicalAustralia Twitter Z: www.twitter.com/Connected_Aus Instagram: www.instagram.com/connectedthemusicalaustralia YouTube: www.youtube.com/channel/UChG_1YPk7anIp68a_hb7ZEQ Photo: Matt Kean MP with the cast of Connected: Natasha Tidey, David Mock, Joshua McElroy and Zoe Jensen.

Founder of Doggie Rescue, Monika Biernacki said, “They are very bonded, sleep in the same bed and Bert really looks after his little mate. These dogs are very quiet and each has a gentle nature.” Angelique is an inquisitive girl who weighs only 3.2kg. Bert is a touch heavier at 7.5kg. They are both short haired and would suit a family working longer hours or apartmentstyle living. They come desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free and microchipped. Their adoption cost is $750.
