“I raised a family before I started playing around with clay,” the 67-year-old said.

The Stanthorpe-based sculptor will share the gallery space with Tenterfield Aboriginal painter Rod McIntosh for the Inverell Art Gallery Common Ground exhibition, opening Friday evening.

Tasmanian born, the artist said she was searching for warmer weather, but found a familiar four seasons, and inspiration in the Granite Belt.

Her work is life-like and stylised representations of birds and animals, some freestanding, others embedded in a natural setting like a piece of bark or human shoulder.

“Seeing the granite forms, and then just because I do native animals and birds, it was just a natural progression to put them into the rock forms, or the little boulder forms,” she said.

She spent years keeping artist friends company, but even after they invited her to give it a try, she refused, until one day, it was the right time.

“I’ve reared quite a few native animals, so I had that close proximity to animals and birds, and at one point a friend of mine suggested I have a go with some clay and I thought, ‘Yeah, right-o, I’m ready’,” she said.

“And after about three days, he was trying to tell me what to do and I said ‘No, I know what I want to do,” and laughed.

Maggie said her first piece of significance was a joey in a pouch.

“Because I has hand-rearing joeys and looking at them all the time,” she said.

She was advised stick to kangaroos to get a handle on the medium and her skill.

“So you could say I did my apprenticeship on kangaroos and joeys, and then one day I tried to make a possum, and it was easy,” Maggie said with a chuckle.

Her proportions, from frilled lizards, to platypus, pythons to humans, are all accurate and lifelike.

“I think I’m just a three-dimensional person, you know so I know a joey’s about that big,” she said, holding up her hands.

“I talk with my hands a lot, so it makes sense that I would work in a medium like clay in a 3-D way.”

Common Ground opens on Friday, February 19 with an opening at 5.30pm at the Inverell Art gallery. The show runs until April 7 during gallery hours.

Australian family life clearly under attack

VULNERABLE: Jenna Price says proposed tax and childcare cuts are a threat to the Australian family way of life.If companies and corporations and businesses, big and small, could vote in elections, I would understand the government’s desire to pander to them. If it was only the wealthy who voted, I could understand the government’s desire to appease the rich.
Nanjing Night Net

But what I now fail to understand is this: why don’t politicians pander to the ordinary people who vote for them in quite the same way they appease business, big and small; and the rich. Why is their approval so important to the government?

It’s become increasingly apparent that this particular government, first under Abbott and now under Turnbull, is continuing to attack Australian family life. All of us: straight, gay, well, sick, able-bodied or those with disabilities, with or without kids; born here or elsewhere.

This antagonism to all of us was clearly flagged in 2014, when failed treasurer Joe Hockey attempted to push through parliament $8.5 billion in cuts, including a limit of Family Tax Benefit Part B to families when their youngest child turns six. I’m guessing many partners of MPs are stay-at-home parents, so nice for them.

But last week, many of those attempted cuts reappeared and were passed straight through the House of Representatives.Who does that affect? Yep, about one and a half million families will lose their Family Tax Benefit Part A supplements, which is a cut of more than $700 per child every year. And 1.3 million families will lose their Family Tax Benefits, part B supplements, a cut of more than $350 per family every year. That, combined with the abolition of the School Kids Bonus, will mean single parents with two children in high school will lose nearly $5000 a year.

The good news is that, alongside the grasping nature of the ACCI’s prebudget submission, those who represent the rest of us can see what the real problems are.

The Australian Council of Social Services’s CEO Cassandra Goldie says it plainly:“Genuine tax reform is not about raising or lowering tax rates: it should begin by limiting unfair tax breaks and unintended loopholes that mainly benefit people who are on higher incomes and erode the tax base.”

Nick Hopwood, a researcher at the University of Technology Sydney, says it’s very important that we consider the kinds of services which support our most vulnerable. Many of those services, particularly around the area of early intervention for children, have no idea one year to the next whether they will be funded.

In ACOSS’s submission into the family payments structural reform inquiry, Goldie again pleads with those in the Senate to reject the changes to family payments. The submission says the expenditure component of the package, which boosts Part A by $5 a week, doesn’t take effect until July 2018.

It also goes on to point out that there has been no release of an analysis of the impacts of the proposed changes.“It is vital that there is clarity about how different families will be affected, particularly given that vulnerable children and their families will clearly be affected.”

But for me, the most telling yet depressing part of ACOSS’s prebudget submission is about childcare:“The relative generosity at the higher end has increased the overall costs of the (childcare)package, which the government is now seeking to pay for through cuts to family payments.”Yes, reward those families with incomes of more than $340,000 a year. They really need it, don’t they?

Fiebig, Collison shine

Greg Fiebig scored a near-century of 96 in Roopena’s win over South Whyalla.
Nanjing Night Net

Roopena won an all important toss on a very good batting track in its Whyalla cricket match against South Whyalla at Memorial Oval on Saturday.

Roopena hasbeen juggling its top order all season and once again began with a new combination of Nick “Slim” Johns (48) and Dale Chenoweth (13) which may be the combination that they move forward with in finals.

Chenoweth and Johns were both dropped behind the wicket off Simon Trezise.

Chenoweth fell to the economical Mitch Ruth (1/25) before Johns began to open his shoulders against Vandeleur (1/69) but he eventually fell to a phenomenal outfield catch to Wilsden, off Beeps.

This brought together Phil Smith (83no) and Greg Fiebig (96no) who combined for a 170-run stand to see out the innings.

Both batsmen played intelligent cricket milking the bowling and continually rotating the strike.

South toiled hard but were outclassed by the two most crucial players in Roopena’s finals deck.

Fiebig now firms as one of the favourites for the Whyalla News Medal.

South got off to a shocking start with Sawtell (0) and Mullighan (7) removed by the wily veteran Jeff Ewings (2/8).

Ewings, who has been a regular in A reserves over the past few seasons, looms large as a very important player as his finals experience is just what Roopena needs.

Hedges (0) fell cheaply and when Ruth (1) was involved in a horror run-out South were on the ropes at 4/9.

Captain Vandeleur (30) came to the crease and was soon put under pressure with some great inswing bowling from his nephew Matt Woolford (1/9).

Vandeleur was the lone hand and the only South player to reach double figures which is disappointing at A grade level.

Heading to finals the firepower of Slim, Kanga and King along with Fiebs as an anchor is the key to Roopena moving forwards in the finals.

The three other finals contenders will be concerned about the possible return of Rhys Lacey as he will be a crucial addition to an inexperienced bowling line up.

Roopena 250 defeated South Whyalla, all out for just59.

Man of the Match: Greg Fiebig (Roopena)

North Whyalla 3/144, West Whyalla 140

North Whyalla desperately needed this win to stay in touch with the top two and a possible double chance.

West needed a win to stay in the hunt for finals, but it was not to be.

Matthew Quist sent the young Dragons in on the hard deck in a brave move, possibly one he wouldn’t have made if Paul Wilson was in the A grade.

Sam Frick (0) was dismissed on the 22nd straight dot ball of the first dig which set the tone for the rest of West Whyalla’s innings.

Crowhurst (31) Smith (18) Starkey (27) and Captain Croft (27) all got starts but it was Quist (4/40) who rattled the middle order with West all out in the 37th over.

It was Quist (63) who stood tall for the Magpies as he along with cameos from McDonald (18) Beaty (17)and Big hitting Atkinson (36) had North cruise to victory.

North still seem like the most balanced team with a deep batting order.

Quist in great form with close to 500 runs for the season and Atkinson is starting to see the ball like a watermelon and islooming as a real threat.

With half a dozen genuine seamers and the spin of Quist it is a formidable line-up.

The T20 victory over Roopena on Friday night would also help to boost the self belief of a group that has underperformed in finals in previous years.

A disappointing end to a promising year for West who have plenty to work with for next season.

Man of The Match: Matthew Quist (North Whyalla)

Central Whyalla 7/185, Westlands 9/87

Central Whyalla replaced Westlands on top of the ladder in a dominant display at Memorial Oval on Sunday.

Westlands got off to a perfect start with Cam Stewart (1/22) removing the dangerous Brad Smith (6) in the first over.

Captain Scott Collison (101) returned to form with a gritty century compiled over 48 overs which led his team to a competitive total of 185.

It was a lone hand from Collison as the middle order failed apart from handy contributions from Jarrad Dunbar (22) and Rowe (14no) and Schreiner (14no)

The Jaritz brothers snared two wickets each but John Davis surprisingly only bowled four overs on a turning wicket.

A feather in the cap of Collison as his opposite number was probably concerned that a fired up he might launch him to all areas.

In reply it was Bartel (3/22) and Daniel Collison (3/28) that put the brakes on the stolen car that is normally a Westlands run chase.

Westlands lost 6/9 in the space of six overs to come to a crashing halt.

Cam Stewart (20) and John Davis (24) battled hard but the ship had sailed and Westlands were bundled out for 87.

Westlands are still dangerous and would hope to shake off this loss -they may still have not found their best 11 as their A reserves have won five of their past six games with some strong individual performances.

Their reliance on Dave Dunbar scoring is evident and he is well and truly the barometer for theirsuccess.

Central on the other hand look strong as an in-form Collison will look to further cash in against a hapless South next week as he and his team look to cement the minor premiership.

Man of The Match: Scott Collison (Central Whyalla)

T20 FINAL

North Whyalla 3/141, Roopena 8/139

Allan “Kanga” Woolford (42 off 22) proved he is still one of the best power hitters in Whyalla cricket with a blistering start to Roopena’s T20 innings.

He and Chenoweth (25 off 19) put on 42 in the first five overs before Chenoweth was run out. Fiebig proved an anchor for Woolford as he went on to take on Quist for consecutive “Zacs” (that’s a six in Whyalla speak).

He chased a wide one and was stumped but his job was done with Roopen 2/81 after nine overs.

Some quality seam bowling from Beaty (1/24) and Branford (1/16) tied up the Roopena middle order with Smith (29) and Fiebig (12) finding it hard to dispatch the North attack.

Paynter (3/31) cleaned up the last few with Roopena ending up on 139 feeling they were about 20 to 30 runs shot of what they would need.

Quist (37) and Clothier (23) got North off to a solid start with Clothier run out in the fifth over with North on 32.

Atkinson (45 off 19) provided the spark North needed taking spinner Nick Todd for four consecutive monster sixes to blast 27 off the 13th over which would turn the game.

The spin of Chenoweth and Todd costing 56 off three overs.

The emerging young gun, Matt Woolford, bowled well in a critical stage with only 17 off his four overs.

Phil Smith (2/26) removed Atkinson and Clothier.

In the end Chris Beaty (19) guided North to their first silverware in A grade cricket in quite some time.

Matt Quist took out man of the match honours.

Roopena probably did enough with the bat but just lacked that strike bowler to be able to damage the North top four, a great game on a beautiful night.

BBC reporter welcomed in Delungra

Delungra resident Philippa Raw interviewed on Sunday by BBC journalist Kate Beck.A WELCOMING party turned out to meet BBC reporter Kate Beck for her visit to Delungra on Sunday.
Nanjing Night Net

Residents Philippa Raw, Ann McNaughton and honourary resident Lorna Olgilvie set out trays of slices, sandwiches, pikelets and all the makings of a cuppa for their guest.

“I didn’t expect to have the level of welcome that I did, in the park,” she said.

“Everyone was so friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be asked about what they thought.”

Her mission was to discover how the community felt about being identified as the Australian post code with the lowest average income.

She found a delegation of locals who were happy to share the history of the town once humming with shops, dances, industry and activity, and their own stories and thoughts about what made Delungra special.

Kate asked the group how they felt about the tag of Australia’s poorest post code.

Life-long resident Robert Campagner said he was surprised when somebody asked if they were living in poverty by the statistic.

“I said, ‘No, it’s just a normal little town,” he said.

It makes us look like idiots or dole-bludgers, really. Look at some of the suburbs of Sydney are worse off than Delungra is.”

Ann said there were places across Australia with a lot of empty houses and shops.

“I doubt whether there’s many empty houses here,” she added.

Though the variety of people, from retirees, a young family, local producer and some life-long residents, Kate said they shared a story.

“Everybody had their version, but it’s a similar theme; volunteerism is really important here, it’s something that sets the town apart, and it’s just a nice place to live basically if you like a quiet life, it’s a really nice place to live.”

Life-long resident Jim Townsend agreed, and felt both newcomers and natives had a stake in the sustainability of Delungra.

“If you’ve been here for any length of time, you become part of a little town like this, and you don’t like to see it disintegrate like you do some of them, and we’ve tried to keep it together,” he said.

“Basically speaking it’s friendship.”

Local producer Tim Lloyd believed there was little to prevent his family from living both in the 21st century and the Delungra district.

“See, the little community, we’ve got all the access to the big world, all the information you’d want, but it’s about the quality of life, not having pocketfuls of money.”

Building teenage road confidence

PARENTS can prepare their teenagers for safer driving experiences through a parent-specific driving workshop.
Nanjing Night Net

Teaching a young person to drive can be a daunting task, but several council workshops and hands-on driving events may help parents of learner drivers prepare their teenagers for safer driving experiences.

Council’s road safety officer, Melanie Lausz said parents and supervisors of novice drivers had a crucial role to play in contributing to make roads safer.

“Introducing your learner to as much driving time as possible ‘in real driving situations’ is imperative to any young driver in improving their confidence, driving skills and knowledge,” Ms Lausz said.

“But so too is varying the different conditions they may encounter on the road.

“And as rules and regulations change, not everyone is confident about teaching our youngest road users the skills, knowledge and correct training methods to progress through the NSW Graduated Licensing Scheme (GLS).”

Council will hold a free two-hour GLS Parent Workshop on Wednesday, February 24 from 6pm at the Moss Vale Civic Centre.

The workshop provides practical advice on supervision, completing the log book and new licence conditions.

Participants also learn the importance of teaching low risk driving techniques and the role of parents in establishing parameters and support for provisional licence holders. Learner drivers are also encouraged to attend.

Council will also hold a free Learner Log Book Run on Sunday, March 6 at Moss Vale.

“The Learner Log Book Run is a great opportunity for learner drivers to cover some of the many topics included in the Learner Driver Log Book and clock up some valuable driving experience hours,” Ms Lausz said.

Council holds four free two-hour GLS Parent Workshops and Logbook Runs

throughout the year in a bid to help the shire’s young drivers gain more experience and help prepare them for solo driving.

Both events are supported by the Roads and Maritime Services and bookings are essential. Registration forms can be collected from council’s Moss Vale office, council libraries, the Welby Motor Registry or download a copy at: 梧桐夜网wsc.nsw.gov419论坛/services/road-safety.

MAV calling for a fairer funding deal

The state’s peak council body is lobbyingfor a fairer deal for local government as a 2.5 per cent cap on rates comes into force.
Nanjing Night Net

Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) president Bill McArthur said the group was working to restore balance when it came to services jointly funded by state and local government. He said many councils were reassessing whether to continue services that were a state government responsibility.

“For decades, an increasingrange of services have been providedby councils under shared funding agreements withthe state. The MAV’s data shows that over time, the state’s contribution has reduced, stopped completely or not kept pace with costs –leaving ratepayers to foot the bill,” hesaid.

MAV president Bill McArthur.

“Many agreements were originally 50:50 funding splits with the state like school crossing supervisors and SES units.

“Public libraries are now funded 83 per cent by councils, with the state only providing 17 per cent,creating a funding gap of $73 million annually for councils… Maternal and child health services are closer to a 40:60funding split,creating a gap of $13 millionfor councils.”

The Moyne Shire is facing an annual budget shortfall of $600,000 and both Warrnambool City and Corangamite are expecting a $500,000 cut under rate capping.Speaking at their meeting last month, Corangamite Shire councillors said it was time to push back oncost shifting.

“The state government should be paying for a greater proportion of emergency management e.g. SES and fire safety prevention,” councillor Neil Trotter said.

“If the government limits our capacity to raise revenue to meet community expectations then there should be no surprise when councils refuse to pay for services that should be the state and federal governments’ responsibility.”

Cr Ruth Gstrein said the level of state government cost shifting had got “completely out of control”.

“Libraries for us used to be an 80-20 split with the state putting up the majority of the funding, that has now completely reversed over the years,” she said.
