Greens Candidate stands down to become an Independent in Parkes

Greens Candidate stands down to become an Independent in Parkes

Hi friends, I suppose most have heard that I have stood aside for the election following public disclosure of a post I made on a Port Arthur conspiracy site on FB, 8 months ago. The Greens found it difficult to refute in this stage of the election which I understand. I really do apologise to all of you who have helped me get this far.

It appears I was targeted by a journo from The Australian using a firm who does handle searches on social media etc, not sure who they are. I really don't think the tragedies of the past need rehashing like this in public view and it must grieve families and survivors of the tragedy to see it being discussed like some political football. I also apologise to those people who are affected in this way, very much.

Santos declines NSW Government request for more info about CSG project.

Santos declines NSW Government request for more info about CSG project.

Jamieson Murphy - Northern Daily Leader

SANTOS has been slammed for refusing to provide the NSW government with the requested information about its coal seam gas development near Narrabri.

The gas giant recently responded to the concerns of various organisations, including 14 government agencies, in its Supplementary Response to Submissions.

In the report, Santos refused more than a dozen specific requests for information and commitments from the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), the Rural Fire Service, and Narrabri council.

Narrabri farmer and Lock the Gate spokeswoman Sally Hunter said the company had refused the RFS's request to not flare gas during catastrophic bushfire conditions.

"This shows an extraordinary and reckless disregard for the safety of our community," she said.

"Santos has also refused the EPA's request to assess the capacity of landfill facilities to accommodate huge volumes of salt waste with potentially high concentrations of metals and other contaminants.

"It has refused Narrabri council's request that it obtain environmental insurance for offsite and long-term environmental harms, despite this being a recommendation made by the NSW Chief Scientist for all coal seam gas operations."

An NSW Department of Planning and Environment spokesperson said the company's response was being reviewed, in consultation with the relevant government agencies.

"In finalising its assessment, the Department may request additional information from Santos before referring the proposal to the Independent Planning Commission, which will make the final decision," they said.

"The Department wants to ensure a rigorous and comprehensive assessment is undertaken, given the complex nature of the application and the high level of community interest."

Santos did not respond to the Leader's request for comment.

National Simultaneous Storytime

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an annual event held by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Each year a picture book,written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country.
This year, Narrabri Library will be taking part in the event by holding a special story time for the general public at 11.00am on Wednesday 22 May 2019.

Each year, interested publishers send in possible titles. In addition to meeting copyright and other publishing criteria, the chosen book must also include a positive storyline; appeal to a modern and diverse audience; be classified as read-aloud book (assessed on language and length) and be reviewed on how well the book lends itself to craft and other activities.

Narrabri Library has held National Simultaneous Storytime events for the past 15 years.

Library Manager, Jenny Campbell said, “NSS is a fun and educational event that is enjoyed by children aged 0-13 years.  This event has been a success in previous years and I am looking forward to reading the 2019 book Alpacas with Maracas with our community”.

The NSS is a vibrant and fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

By facilitating NSS we aim to:

• promote the value of reading and literacy
• promote the value and fun of books
• promote an Australian writer and publisher
• promote storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country
• provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the event

NSS receives positive media coverage, generates a great deal of community interest and is held annually as part of Library and Information Week. 2018 was the biggest and most successful NSS to date with over 1,062,230 participants at over 8,255 locations participating.

This year, Narrabri Library will be holding a special storytime for the general public at 11.00am on Wednesday 22nd May 2019.
Additional storytimes will be made available to preschools via appointment. The reading of Alpacas with Maracas will be available via Storybox in Wee Waa and Boggabri Libraries.
