Boggari woman nominated for National Volunteer Week award

Boggabri

Boggabri's Nellie Lincoln is among eight nominees in line for a National Volunteer Week award.

Ms Lincoln was nominated for the time and effort she has invested in Boggabri Drovers' Campfire through the Lions Club.

When the NVI spoke to Ms Lincoln on Wednesday, she said she was "very surprised" to be nominated.

"You don't do volunteer work to get anything, to be nominated or get a certificate or get a free lunch. You do it to make people happy," she said.

"Either you like it and you've got it in you, or you don't and you don't do it. That's how I feel about volunteer work, anyway."

Ms Lincoln said she has been helping out at the drovers' campfire for about four years and is a jack of all trades.

"You name it, I do everything - help cleaning toilets, to help putting up fences, to cooking barbecues and driving the bus," she said.

It's time to work together for the future of Barwon - Roy Butler

Barwon

This week I had the honour of delivering my inaugural speech in Parliament. An opportunity to talk about my goals for the next four years.  To you the people I represent I restate my election commitments – to work hard and be honest.   
 
Across the electorate I have met many people who are incredibly passionate about the future of  their  community.  They  want  recognition  that  at  this  moment  in  the  history  of  NSW  the government is faced with a choice. They continue to treat the communities of western NSW in the same manner they have been or they change their focus and reinvigorate the bush.

'Myley's law': parents of six-year-old quad bike victim want change

Sydney Morning Herald

Josh Maxwell wants it to be known as "Myley's law": a series of coronial recommendations that, if implemented, could prevent tragedies similar to the one which took the life of his six-year-old daughter.

Myley Maxwell was one of two young passengers on a quad bike being driven by a 13-year-old girl on a property near Narrabri, in the state's west, when it collided with a tree.

She succumbed to head injuries soon after.

"It’s something that we, the family have got to deal with for the rest of our lives. But if we can make change to prevent other children being put in this position, we’ve done our job as parents," Mr Maxwell said outside the NSW Coroner's Court in Lidcombe on Thursday morning.

The grieving North West NSW father's comments came after Deputy State Coroner Elizabeth Ryan handed down her findings following in inquest into Myley's death, among them that adults face criminal prosecution for allowing children under 16 to ride adult-sized quad bikes.

She also recommended the NSW Attorney-General consider introducing legislation making it an offence for adults to allow children to ride any quad bike without a helmet, and legislation making it easier for police to be able to enter properties where they suspected an offence had occurred.

What You Need to Know if you Plan to Buy a Car Before The End of Financial Year

Julian Parsons - Sydney

Did you know that now is the perfect time to buy a car?

The end of the financial year is right around the corner and it couldn’t be a better time to buy a new car. If you’re after a good bargain, there’s quite a bit to consider when purchasing a car.

With different financing methods and competing sales rates, there are a lot of possibilities to ensure that you get the best deal. And the good news is that both small-time car dealers and big brands are keen to sell cars at hefty discounts before the end of the financial year.

We need to support those who are supporting our Farmers

Roy Butler, Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MP

Rural Financial Counsellors are the link between drought stricken farmers and government support.

There is an alarming rate of turnover and vacancies within these financial counselling positions that would appear to be due to the under resourcing and lack of support for these crucial roles.

Currently Rural Financial Counsellors are effectively hosted by the State Government and funded by the Commonwealth Government, this arrangement has varied over the life of this important service.
