Cabonne Mayor Bob Dowling has beenheartened by an increasing amount of support from ratepayers opposed to theamalgamation of a large slice of the Shirewith Orange City.“Along with fellow Councillors, I havebeen receiving many letters, emails andphone calls from residents, many from theShire’s eastern area, who don’t want tosee Cabonne broken up,” Cr Dowling said.A group of ratepayers is asking the NSWBoundaries Commission to amalgamatean area that could be more than a quarterof the area of Cabonne Shire with Orange.The Mayor said he understood residentswere organising counter petitionsthroughout the Shire urging NSW LocalGovernment Minister Don Page to rejectthe move.“Many people have been contacting measking to sign these petitions,” he said.“I expect them to be forwarded to theMinister in coming weeks.”Cr Dowling said many people were sur-prised to learn their properties may beincluded in the breakaway area being pro-posed by the eastern residents group.“Boundaries marked on a sketchy mapgiven to Council indicate that as many asa third of Cabonne residents could beincluded in the area,” he said.“The area in question is much larger justan ‘eastern adjustment’, it extends northto Wellington Shire, south to BlayneyShire and appears to go up to 25 kilome-tres or more west of Orange in places.“I’ve been contacted by a number of rate-payers who were unaware they could beaffected and now are wanting to voicetheir opposition.”Cr Dowling said the number of letters andphone calls had accelerated during thepast fortnight.“I intend to reply to all those who havewritten to me, however that will be a bigtask considering the amount of corre-spondence I have been receiving,” he said.

To the editor...
After reading letter to the Editor July 6th& 13th I feel prompted to express myopinion on the plain packaging ofcigarettes. Before I go any further Iwould like to inform you I am anex-smoker and have not smoked for thelast 22 years.Whilst I am very anti smoking I do notbelieve plain packaging will contribute topeople not taking up the habit, even tothe point of it being made illegal, it willnot stop them. Drugs are illegal andcome in plain packaging, but we still havea huge drug problem andundesirable people making a living fromit.Whatever happened to people beingresponsible for their own actions?Taking everything off the shelf out of sightwill not help our young; in contrast if youare not allowed to have it you want it.Education is the answer and this beginsat home with parental guidance andexample, which unfortunately in oursociety is now very rare.Charlie Mackintosh, Canowindra

Unfortunately the Canowindra Public Schoolhad a break in on the first weekend of theholidays, between Friday night and Sundaymorning. Items stolen were a large plasmaTV, computers and all the laptops, as well assome other small items. Damage was doneto doorways and doors. The computers andlaptops are only of use in the schoolsituation and are worth nothing. However,many of the programs on them arespecifically for our children with additionalneeds and there loss is a real nuisance. Allitems will be replaced through insurance, butit is annoying that we have such aninconvenience to the school routines.If you saw anybody in the school grounds orknow anything about the break-in, pleasedinform the school on 02 6344 1403 or thepolice on 02 6344 1300. You can also contactCrime-stoppers to report anonymously onFREECALL 1800 333 000.
A conversation that not too long ago was taboowithin our community is being brought to theforefront particularly in the Dubbo electorate. Inrecent times the issue and any conversationabout mental illness was one that would seepeople take a huge side step to avoid. It is sucha difficult issue to comprehend when muchabout mental health and other like conditionsare within their very nature considered irrationalbehaviours trying to be understood by aconsidered rational mind.Throughout my career mental health issueshave really been at the forefront of the work Ihave undertaken, both in the field as a policeofficer, within my responsibilities of humanresource management in police and even on apersonal note. I congratulate those individualsand organisations who have courageouslybrought this issue into the public domain,people like Winston Churchill, political leadersand high profile sportspeople and keyorganisations like Black Dog and Beyond Blue.With their help mental health issues are nolonger like a pariah, and those charged withproviding assistance for people suffering suchhealth concerns can now access and receivethe support services they need.One of the biggest challenges I faced whilepolicing at a street level was the crossover ofpeople who suffered from mental healthproblems who ended up in the judicial system.COPS are not diagnostically trained andreceive little in the way of training and educa-tion in how to detect or handle people suffering.This situation has been on the constantimprove over time and a cultural shift isrecognising and providing support for policewho suffered from related illnesses as well. Weare not there yet but we are on the right track.Recently in town was the Hon. KevinHumphries, Minister for Mental Health, HealthyLifestyles and Western NSW who has beengiven the first Ministry ever dedicated to thissignificant subject matter. One of his firstinitiatives is to establish a NSW Mental HealthCommission a vitally important opportunity forthe Government to support those suffering,those carers and service providers to have theirsay on the future provision of mental healthservices in NSW. This initiative is a refreshingapproach and coincides with long overduenational initiatives along this vein, so thattogether hopefully we can achieve an improvedand sustained management approach thatcan be achieved in the provision of mentalhealth services and support. As your localmember I was delighted that Kevin choseDubbo to commence the first of the consulta-tion process in order to build the best MentalHealth Commission possible. This processallowspeople from across the sector to pro-vide honest open and frank input into thechallenges and roadblocks within the currentsystem that the Commission needs to over-come. Soon I will also have the opportunity tohost a forum to allow for the broader commu-nity to contribute to the Commission's Task-force so that everyone will get the opportunityto have their say.I know through my own personal experience,that my cup runneth over some years ago.For me while I 'danced with shadows and ranfrom grey skies' I came from a changing po-licing culture that when I started 'Big boysdon't cry' and 'COPS are bullet proof' atti-tudes existed. I dealt with my issues likemost police did dealing with an assault on mylife, the cradling of children lost to their par-ents and all those horrific jobs a policing ca-reer brings and by rotten luck came my wayfar too often, by retreating to the age old rem-edy of alcohol and emotionally withdrawingfrom my family, going into my shell and seek-ing a cavalier mind set of welcoming any newthreat that presented danger to myself.Thankfully for me before my family or I weredestroyed, attitudes shifted considerably to-wards a culture where support to seek helpwas encouraged. It was also through the loveand support of my family, my colleagues andin particular team members from whom Ididn't hide my challenge that helped me over-come and survive a significant period in mylife. I was lucky that I was able to access thesupport I needed and like many survivorshave found that a battle with mental healthissues doesn't have to be terminal, nor alifelong proposition, there can be outcomesof survival and better days ahead, I look for-ward to contributing as your Local Member inour Governments attempts to achieve thesevery outcomes for many more. We are verylucky here in our electorate to have wonder-ful organisations that do so much to supportthose in need. My visit recently with the Min-ister to NALAG centre was a key reminderthat there is still much to do, but at least wecan now openly have the conversation.

After visiting Indonesia's feedlots andabattoirs earlier this month, John Cobbwas in town today meeting with localsand business owners to find some grassroots issues.John stated that one local issue stood outmore than others, "I would have to sayabout 98% of Cabonne residents areagainst any council amalgamation and areeven quite angry about it."John is pleasantly surprised to see theconfidence and growth in essentialbusiness services and retail, although heunderstands that discretionary expendi-ture is more at risk, where households areless likely to purchase non essential itemsat the moment.John was rather impressed with one localbusiness, Lucerne Foods Parts &Machinery, that is doing so well that theyare increasing their employee numbers,and their recent trip overseas to gethands on experience in different farmingand maintenance techniques."The area between Canowindra, Molongand Orange is some of the best farmingcountry in Australia, however further outwest they desperately need more rain."On the issue of the ban of live cattle ex-port to Indonesia, John advised that dur-ing his trip he visited feedlots that were asgood, if not better, than the standard of similar set ups here in Australia.The ban is already having a detrimentaleffect on a whole range of Australianswho make their living from jobs associ-ated with the live export trade. Road traindrivers, mechanics, helicopter pilots. Allout of work and onto the dole.
