Highway cop an example to everyone

Highway cop an example to everyone

Graduating from university is an achievement for anybody but for Batemans Bay highway patrol Sergeant Rob Young, this success must taste all the sweeter for the sacrifices he has made.A number of students combine studies with full-time work or family commitments. Far less manage to juggle all three.Surviving on several hours' sleep a night, Sgt Young has not shirked on his duties as a father and has worked hard to ensure his children's needs are met. His commitment shows he recognises the importance of education; that it should be embraced and opportunities seized upon. He is an example of what can be achieved through determination and sheer hard work.The Young children will have made sacrifices in the past two years but what a fine example their father has set in both his work ethic and dedication to education.As he is planning to combine his professional expertise as a highway patrol officer with his passion for study, by looking at ways to reduce the road toll, Sgt Young's efforts may benefit us all.The graduations at UOW this week are a reminder of the value of education and our fortune in living in a country where opportunities to study are plentiful.

Deputy Mayor wants a wind turbine in his Kiama yard

Deputy Mayor wants a wind turbine in his Kiama yard

An artist's impression of how the 15m-high wind turbine would look in the yard of Ben van der Wijngaart's home.

Sleek eco-sculpture or ugly blight on the horizon?That's the question Kiama Municipal Council will ponder next month after its deputy mayor, the Greens' Ben van der Wijngaart, lodged an application to build a wind turbine in his backyard.Combined with 12 existing solar panels, the 15m-high structure is expected to make Mr van der Wijngaart's Kiama home energy neutral and deliver electricity back to the national grid. EDITORIAL: The winds of change still long way off "We all have to start thinking about reducing our carbon footprint … and two of the best things we can do are reduce consumption and generate as much as we can ourselves by renewable energy sources," Mr van der Wijngaart said.The 2.25kw spherical turbine consists of five rotor blades which silently produce electricity at a maximum wind speed of 19m per second. It is expected to save up to $380 in electricity bills each year and will earn 60¢ per kw hour for any surplus energy generated.Mr van der Wijngaart said he expected some opposition to the plan, but hoped the community would embrace the move away from coal-fired power to clean, green energy."Some people will say it looks like a piece of art, and others will say they don't like it." "But most people think nothing of ugly power poles and huge antennas on people's roofs … and if we want to reduce our carbon footprint we need to get used to these sorts of things."The $16,000 venture would prove its economic viability as electricity prices continued to rise, Mr van der Wijngaart said.His bid came as the Southern Councils Group (SCG) last week endorsed a new steering committee to help develop a community-based wind farm project. The group wants $1 million from the State Government for wind mapping, environment studies and land owner negotiations. The South Coast is one of five precincts where NSW's future wind power investment will be concentrated. Its first wind turbine was built last year.Kiama council's director of environmental services Andrew Knowlson said Mr van der Wijngaart's proposal would be assessed for noise, appearance and overshadowing.

Fixed cameras cost Illawarra drivers $2.1m

Fixed cameras cost Illawarra drivers $2.1m

This speed camera, which monitors northbound traffic on the F6 at Gwynneville, raked in $900,000 for the NSW Government in the 2009-2010 financial year. Picture: ORLANDO CHIODOThis is the Illawarra's most prolific fixed speed camera, raking in close to $900,000 in revenue for the State Government in the 2009-10 financial year.Keeping a perpetual watch over northbound traffic heading towards Mt Ousley on the F6 at Gwynneville, the region's biggest infringement money spinner lightened the pockets of more than 5500 motorists.Revenue raised by the F6 detector dwarfed the income of any other camera in the region, accounting for almost half of the $2.1 million in fines collected across the Illawarra.The second most bountiful camera, located on the Princes Hwy at North Wollongong, raised $272,000, closely followed by the high-profile West Wollongong camera outside The Illawarra Grammar School with $264,000.While nearly 2300 fewer motorists were caught out compared with the previous year, revenue raised from the cameras jumped by more than $280,000 following the introduction of a new demerit and fine pricing system in July 2009.An RTA spokesperson said the reduction in infringements also indicated the message to slow down was sinking in.Although the $2.1 million in fines had been added to the State Government's consolidated revenue, NRMA Deputy President Michael Tynan said he believed all money raised from infringements should go towards improving roads."The NRMA would like all fixed speed camera revenue to be invested back into roads and details of revenue and expenditure made public," Mr Tynan said.The RTA spokesperson said revenue collected from speeding fines was paid to the Treasury and redirected into health, education, road safety and other initiatives.In addition to multi-million dollar investments in safety upgrades and black spot projects, the spokesperson said the State Government had allocated $40 million to Picton Rd and an additional $7.8 million to projects across the Illawarra.While acknowledging the fixed speed cameras did have their place, Mr Tynan said they were still no match for a strong highway patrol presence."While the NRMA agrees that fixed speed cameras reduce crash rates, the most effective deterrent for speeding drivers is a highly visible police presence," he said.More than 15,000 motorists were snapped exceeding the limit by the region's fixed cameras last financial year.New mobile speed cameras are being rolled out this week.They are targeting speeding hot spots in the Illawarra and the rest of NSW.

DRAGONS BLOG: The Red V comeback

DRAGONS BLOG: The Red V comeback

It was when the Bunnies kicked a field goal on Friday night to go 13-12 up that I relaxed - because I knew the Dragons would win.It’s strange behaviour from a fan who has spent years watching games in fear, just waiting for the moment when we’ll throw it all away. And that moment usually came.Yet as Chris Sandow gave a little fist-pump after kicking that field goal in the 64th minute, I knew a win to the Dragons was inevitable.Which is strange behaviour from a fan who has been through enough grand final losses in last 30-odd years to know better than to ever count a game as won before the final siren.Yet the certainty was there - and it was a certainty.For mine that field goal was a sign of submission. An action that said ‘‘we’re buggered if we can figure out how to score a try so we’re just going to take a field goal’’.It was a compliment to the Dragons who, even though they weren’t quite up to scratch, were still good enough to limit the Bunnies options.(I should point out here, I’m not mocking the Bunnies. I think they’ve got a pretty good side in there somewhere but they just seem to lack focus and discipline. And make the wrong choices - such as kicking a field goal way too early.)And I knew that, with 16 minutes still on the clock, there were eons of time for the Dragons to make up a measly one-point deficit. Which they did, courtesy of Neville Costigan’s decision to run it on the last (though I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who thought at the time ‘‘what the hell is Nev doing running the ball on the last?’’).The play ended with Gasnier scoring - thus guaranteeing the man with the Roger Ramjet jaw would be the focus on media coverage of a Dragons game for the second week in a row.What I loved most about the game was that we came from behind to win.At half-time we were down 6-4 - and our record of winning games when we’re down at half-time is awful and, early in the second half it went out to 12-4.In fact we were behind on the scoreboard for almost the entire game - from the fifth minute, when Bunny Roy Asotasti scored an embarrassingly easy try, until the Gasnier try in the 71st minute.For a season and a half now, the Dragons’ ability to chase points has been called into question - and rightly so. I’ve felt the same way, figuring that once we were behind on the scoreboard we got lost and didn’t quite know what to do.But this game, where they used their defence to keep the scoreline close and their patience to wait for the right time to attack, may well have gotten that monkey off their back.Now they know they can come from behind and win. Though, to be honest, it’s always a little easier on the nerves when they lead from the front.
