OP-ED_ Water Royal Commission is the way forward

OP-ED_ Water Royal Commission is the way forward

Water Royal Commission is the way forward

Leaving the Basin Plan will not solve the issues we have with the allocation and management of water in this State. It will not see any more water in our rivers, or return any water back to farmers.

The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party have been calling for a Federal Royal Commission for over a year now, with the sole intent of untangling the mess water management is in.

The mismanagement of water is destroying our rivers, communities and industries. That’s why myself and Helen Dalton have been pushing hard on pausing the Basin Plan and conducting a Royal Commission.

APA shelves project after public resistance

Independent Australia Johanna Evans

Author: Kate

Community resistance from a small town has left the future of a large scale pipeline project in question, writes Johanna Evans.

THE AUSTRALIAN PIPELINE ASSOCIATION (APA) has appeared to shelve their proposal for the high-pressure Western Slopes CSG Pipeline ahead of their upcoming AGM to be held in Sydney on 25 October 2018. The 460km coal seam gas pipeline (also known as “the head of the snake”) will link the Santos Narrabri Gas Project (NGP) to the Moomba/Sydney bi-directional pipeline that takes gas to the Curtis Island LNG plant for export.

In a recent release on their website, APA states:

NSW Farmers furious at Inland Rail land acquirement

Daniel Pedersen Northern Daily Leader

Author: Kate

NSW Farmers, after months of protracted negotiations with the Australian Rail Track Corporation, has laid the $10 billion Inland Rail project’s shortcomings squarely at the feet of the Coalition Government.

It says the decision to cut a new route across the Pilliga, slicing through farming properties, was ill-conceived and not even properly assessed.

Blair seeks Federal tax concessions for farmers at summit

John Ellicott The Land

Author: Kate

NSW Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair fears Friday’s drought summit in Canberra will be a talkfest with 150 people expected to attend the meeting at Old Parliament House. “That will give them about two minutes each to speak,” he says.

Instead Mr Blair is taking two firm tax-related proposals to Canberra he will will put on the table that he believes will ease financial stress for farmers.

Federal anti-corruption body motion could test Coalition control in minority government

ABC News

Author: Kate

A motion to create a federal anti-corruption commission could test the Coalition's control of Federal Parliament as it prepares for minority government.

Greens senator Larissa Waters believes there is now majority support for a national body, with the Liberal Party likely to lose the historically safe seat of Wentworth to independent Kerryn Phelps.

All six crossbench MPs have indicated they would support a national commission and Federal Labor has already pledged to establish one if elected at the next election.

To test the numbers, the Greens will introduce a Senate motion calling on the Coalition to "establish a national anti-corruption commission".

Senator Waters expects that motion — which would require an immediate debate in the Lower House — would pass with the support of Labor.

Key points:
Senator Waters expects the motion would pass with the support of Labor
Kerryn Phelps says she sees the creation of such a body "as something that is very achievable"
Christian Porter has previously said there was no persuasive evidence for a national integrity commission

Feral pests looking for food and water offers chance to control numbers, expert says

ABC News

Author: Kate

The impact of the drought on wild animals offers a chance to try to get on top of pest numbers, a land service officer has said.

The widespread nature of the drought is affecting more than just livestock and wildlife, with feral animals also struggling to find food and water.

This is bringing them closer to areas where humans are present as they compete with livestock for resources.

Central Tablelands Local Land Service senior officer, Paul Gibb, said the congregation of pest animals around water sources offered opportunities for landholders.

No work done after Nationals' treasurer got $850k water-saving grant

Sydney Morning Herald by nick mcKenzie and Richard Baker

Author: Kate

The Nationals' federal treasurer and candidate for the Victorian seat of Shepparton, Peter Schwarz, is accused of gouging much of the $850,000 he was paid by Australia's largest drought-proofing project.

Mr Schwarz is also accused of then calling in favours when pressed to account for the taxpayer cash.

As Prime Minister Scott Morrison launches his drought summit, leaked government files reveal that Mr Schwarz banked the taxpayer subsidies in November 2011 and then spent years resisting efforts from water officials to get him to either return the money or use it for its intended purpose - saving water.

$5bn drought future fund headlines summit

9 News

Author: Kate

Up to $5 billion will be stashed away for non-rainy days as part of a new fund to help farmers when future droughts scorch paddocks across Australia.

The Future Drought Fund was the key announcement made by Prime Minister Scott Morrison at Friday's national drought summit in Canberra.

From 2020, about $100 million per year will be available, with payments starting from July that year.

The fund will be underpinned by an initial $3.9 billion injection before growing to $5 billion in 2028.

It was Queensland versus New South Wales in Gold Cup runoff

Daily News Warwick

Author: Kate

CAMPDRAFTING: Capella rider Steve Comiskey has won a runoff to win the Pryde's EasiFeed Gold Cup at the Warwick Showgrounds.

At the end of the final, Comiskey had 268 on Broomfield Stylish Diamond, the same score as Wee Waa rider Sam Knight on O'Lara.

In the runoff, Knight was first in camp but his beast proved troublesome on course and he only finished with a cutout score.

Comiskey could have been tempted to take it easy in his run as he only had to record a score on the course to win.

He did more than that, recording 91, a score as good as any in the competition.

Tamworth rider Hugh Miles was third on Reys Ya Garter.

Kimberley Sammon (Beaudesert) riding Possum Sue and Cal Gibson (Bungarra, NSW) were equal fourth.

OPINION: Paddock bashers a big problem for NSW Police

The Land

Author: Kate

WE ALL know the tradition.

Kids who aren’t even tall enough to see over the wheel are thrown the keys to the “paddock basher” or a quad bike and their driving career begins.

I’m a mum and I also manage the Crash Investigation Unit for the NSW Police Force.

Lately we have been called to so many cases of young children losing their lives in cars or on motorcycles or quad bikes being driven or ridden on private property.

The most recent of these has been the death of a 14-year-old boy who died after a single car crash at Yerong Creek near Wagga Wagga on October 11.

The driver, also a 14-year-old boy, was charged with dangerous driving occasioning death – drive manner dangerous.

Far right extremists 'not welcome' in Nationals, leader says amid investigation

Guardian

Nationals allegedly infiltrated by people with links to neo-Nazis and white supremacists

Senior members of the NSW Nationals have held a special meeting to discuss how their party has been infiltrated by people with alleged links to the far right, neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups, with plans to purge the party of any extremists.

Michael McCormack, the federal leader of the Nationals, says his party will not tolerate the “politics of hate”.

The issue came to light earlier this month when the ABC’s Background Briefing reported it had uncovered a plot by Australia’s alt-right movement to join major political parties.

Newell Highway 40km south of Narrabri near Pilliga closed after accident

Northern Daily Leader

Author: Kate

A clean up effort is under way after a truck crash closed the Newell Highway near  Pilliga on Friday afternoon.

Fire crews were called to the scene 40km south of Narrabri at 2.45pm after reports a truck had crashed and lost its load.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman said crews arrived to find about 200 litres of petrol had been spilled as a result of the accident.

“A group of hazardous materials firefighters from Narrabri are on the scene at the moment and they are laying a blanket of foam to help absorb the spill,” the spokesman said.

“A 300m exclusion zone has been set up around the crash site to allow the firefighters to clean up the spill.

“At this stage, motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.”

GIVING their best to themselves, their peers and their school was the theme of a leadership event this week - for children.

The GRIP Student Leadership Conference took place at the Tamworth town hall, drawing schools from not only the local areas but also as far away as Scone and Narrabri.
