Letters to the Editor

Letters to the Editor

Northern Daily Leader

After ten years opposition to Santos and Eastern Star Gas efforts to get coal seam gas projects approved, North West NSW farmers respond in alarm to ACCC suggestions that onshore gas should be rolled out in the Pilliga and across farmland. 

While supporting ACCC calls for coal seam gas exports to be curbed for domestic supply, farmers and communities who depend on safe reliable supplies of underground water will not accept any coal seam gas project that puts at risk this valuable resource. 

As extreme drought conditions are being experienced across major parts of NSW, farmers, graziers and rural communities are faced with the worrying prospect of how their water supply will hold up in these conditions.

A DATE has been set for Santos and People for the Plains to battle it out in court.

The two-day court case will by heard by the NSW Land and Environment Court on April 6 and April 8.

A 'TAH ON THE RISE: Coonamble's Hanigan joins Super Rugby Club for 2016 season

A 'TAH ON THE RISE: Coonamble's Hanigan joins Super Rugby Club for 2016 season

Local Coonamble/Pilliga Ned Hannigan has been chosen in the 2016 squad

Local Coonamble/Piliga, Ned Hannigan has been chosen in the 2016 squad to represent the Waratahs this season.

Last year he played in the under 20's side and toured OS with them. After watching many games with him in it at St Josephs College, Hunters Hill it's nice to see the hard work pay off.

A great career for an outstanding sportsman.

Congratulations Ned.

From the Daily Liberal

NED Hanigan is a star on the rise.

The Coonamble boy earned Australian Schoolboys selection in 2013, and last year represented Australia at the World Rugby 20s Championships in Italy, where he was named Australia's MVP.

Now his career has soared to new heights, with Hanigan elevated into the core training squad for the NSW Waratahs just before Christmas.

"I think it was a bit surreal," he said.

"Daryl (Gibson, Waratahs head coach) called me into his office and said 'you've been training well and we want to pull you on full-time'.

Friendly Face Helping Hands Foundation gets a helping hand

Friendly Face Helping Hands Foundation gets a helping hand

Landmark Classic Sales Tamworth Saturday 6th February

Yesterday we attended Landmark Classic sale and spent the day with Mark and Shelley Ruff who had donated 10% of the sale profits for an amazing horse called Bulla Ava. Ava sold for $25,000 which was amazing. 7 years ago I decided that I needed to help and support people who had medical incidents or accidents. I was selfish in that I needed to feel worthy and I also felt I was given a second and third chance and others just don't get another chance so I needed to feel that I was helping others and making a difference. This year Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation is 5 years old and the people we have helped the lives we have saved has been overwhelming over 50,000 people have been helped and supported. But what I did not think would happen would be the amazing building of this foundation many businesses are built on bricks, mortar, statistics and projected income. Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation is built on love, friendships, honesty, integrity and understanding. Our walls are the hands of friends we have found along the way and our foundations are strong and supportive and built to last. I started this to help others but it is me who has been helped most my life is so full of beautiful People who have become my friends and the walls of our Foundation. Many people have a few friends our foundation is so blessed to be a network of friends who volunteer work and support. Just this week we need to thank these amazing friends for all the support
