Saints impress with run feast

The Trentham District Cricket Club enjoyed a great day of cricket on Saturday with all three senior sides recording big scores in a prolific run feast. The Saints Firsts led the way in A-Reserve amassing a huge total of 7 for 342 against Harcourt on the first day’s play which included a fine century by skipper Harley Forgo. In B Grade, the Seconds finished with an impressive 8 for 241 at Trentham against Elphinstone and, in B-Reserve, the Colts continued their great form by scoring 7 for 181 to defeat top side Barkers Creek in a one-day game.

The Firsts looked to be in trouble at 4 for 85 with key batsmen Chris Adams (31) and Chris Boyer (0) back in the shed. However, a brilliant partnership of 182 runs between opening batsman, Sam Bruton, and skipper, Harley Forgo, took the score to 267 before the dismissal of Forgofor a superb knock of 107. Brutonwas dismissed about 30 runs later for a terrific 91 continuing his excellent form. Dolf Reid (38) and James Fearn (22 not out) also batted well to capitalise on the great work of Harley and Sam. The boys will be looking for a strong performance in the field next week to regain their momentum going into the finals.

John McKenry laid the foundation for the Seconds in B Grade with a very well-made 84 runs which featured shots all around the ground. He was greatly supported by Jake Sartori with a typically attacking 63. Several other useful contributions saw the Saints reach a challenging total of 241.

In B-Reserve, the Colts faced top side Barkers Creek at Glenlyon Reserve. Fielding two players short, the Colts produced a very creditable team performance with the ball in keeping the strong Barkers Creek side to 173 runs. Wickets were shared around with two wickets apiece to Ned Johns, Dan Lendrec, Mitch Steen and Bryce Coffey. Despite losing a couple of key early wickets, the Colts passed the target with 4 overs to spare to record their most impressive win this season. Bryce Coffey led the way, holding the innings together and finishing with an excellent 51 not out. He was given fine support by skipper Dan Lendrec and Hayden Sundblom.

Police believe they have already spoken to people who hold the key to solving Logan schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer’s murder and hope a new $250,000 reward will provide the incentive to get them to talk.

Detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson announced the reward on Monday, after the Queensland Government agreed to fund it, along with indemnity from prosecution for the first person person to provide information that leads to the convictionof Tiahleigh’s killer.

He said the indemnity was particularly important, as detectives surmised they had already interviewedpeople who knew what happened to the 12-year-old nearly four months ago.

However, he said investigators believed they were withholding information from police, either out of fear for repercussions of their own involvement in her death or loyalty to Tiahleigh’s killer.

“Importantly, the offer, in addition to the rewardalso includes a recommendationfor indemnity from prosecution for any accomplice who didn’t actually commit the crime, who first comes forward with information,” Superintendent Hutchinsonsaid.

“We are of the view there are people out there who have information about this homicide.

“We are hoping the reward and more importantly the indemnity offer anincentive to come forward.”

The last confirmed sighting of the 12-year-old was when she was dropped at Marsden State High School on October 30, 2015.

On November 5 her decomposing body was found 40 kilometres away, on the banks of the Pimpama River.

Police believe the 12-year-old had a pre-arranged meeting with an unknown person the day she was dropped at school.

A team of investigators were working around the clock on her death in the wake of her body being found, however, in the past three monthsthere has been no significant breakthrough.

Tiahleigh’s pink backpack and school uniform, both crucial pieces of evidence in the case, have not yet been found.

Superintendent Hutchinson said detectives believed they knew where and when Tiahleigh was killed but would not yet divulge that publicly.

He said they were confident there was more than one person involved in the young girl’sdeath.

“Wecertainly believe there is more than one person who knows what happened,” he said.

“The indemnity isin addition to the reward and will be recommended forany person who didn’t commit the crime. But ithas to be thefirst person who comes forward, not the second.It’s not available to the second person.”

苏州美甲美睫培训学校

He spotted a council vehicle parked in a no-parking zone at Wallsend.

“I don’t believe council vehicles or employees have special exemptions to obeying the road rules do they?” he said.

A council spokesman said “drivers are entitled to pull over in no-parking zones for up to two minutes”.This was backed by information onthe Roads and Maritime Services website.

Dave reckons the driver was “definitely there for more than a couple of minutes”.He rang the council to complain and was stuck on hold for“four minutes and 13 seconds”. The council said the average waiting time for callson Monday was “over one minute”.

Fixing The OceanRemember former Herald journo Greg Ray’s story The Ocean is Broken?

It was about Newcastle ocean yachtsman Ivan Macfadyenobservinga massive plume of garbage in the North Pacific, between Japan and the US, andwasteful industrial-scale fishing on a mid-ocean reef.

Greg’s story went viral, after Twitter co-founder Jack Dorseytweeted it. The story alsoappeared on the front page of the website Reddit.

On Tuesday, we came across a Huffington Post video about 21-year-old Boyan Slat, who believes he’s found a way to clean up the ocean.He came up with a system attached to the seabed, which uses the ocean’s currents to collect trash.

Former Herald journo Greg Ray

He said the system could clean up the so-called “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” in 20 years.He hopes to start the project by 2020.The video attracted about 35 million views on Facebook.

We asked Greg Ray if the ocean could be “unbroken”.

“Step one is stop breaking it even more.Stop making shitty products of no value to anybody from intractable substances that don’t break down easily and safely in nature,” he said.

“Put incentives and constraints on global industry to achieve that goal. Quit overfishing. Try to stop the radiation leakage from Fukushima. Just a few thoughts.”

The Chief is in ChargePaul “The Chief” Harragon is now… are you ready for it… the chief.

Shane “Warnie” Warne had been camp leader on the TV show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

But on Monday’s episode, a shock leadership spill occurred.The camp elected The Chief as its new leader.

Warnie was among those to votefor The Chief to become the new camp kingpin.But in a moment of apparent treachery, reminiscent of a Rudd or Abbott knifing, The Chief then put Warnie on dunny duty.

In truth, The Chief comes across as a nice guy.The question is, can a nice guy win a reality TV show?
