FEDERAL SENATOR IN TOWN Federal Senator Steve Hutchins will officially open 17 community improvement projects in Cabonne Shire at a ceremony in Canowindra tomorrow. Cabonne Council received $351,000 from the Federal Government’s Regional Local Community Improvement Program for projects which ranged from improvements at community halls to playground upgrades and new sporting facilities. Tomorrow’s opening will take place at 3pm in Memorial Park in Canowindra, where the amenities building and tennis courts were upgraded as part of projects totalling $65,000 in the town. Other work completed under the program included Molong Skate Park, which received $103,000, the upgrade of the amenities block in Dean Park, Cudal ($65,000) and the refurbished amenities block and access at Mullion Creek Hall ($65,000).

To the Editor...
I have lived in many different places all with their pluses and minuses. I have to say that Canowindra is by far the best place I have lived. On Saturday I held a Bastille Day celebration in the Bendy Street Emporium. It went beyond my expectations and it had nothing to do with retail figures. These are the people and groups I need to thank for helping my day and making it a day I will cherish for a very long time. 1. The Main Street - There is no service you can't get in the main Street. Thank you to Nick at Comprinting for my Eiffel Tower, Jo at the Phoenix for your words in print and verbally. Leanne, for going to get me the flowers I needed even on your day off and your daughter for hand delivering them to me. To Cindy, Greg, Jill and Trish for all the coffees that settled the nerves. To Justine at Gaskill Greens for putting together the fruit baskets that made my performer Sylvie and her manager Warren feel so welcome. Dallas and team at the Royal including Bill for taking so much care of them, to all the patrons at the bar of the Royal on Friday night for welcoming "strangers' to town. To the Services club for the ice and the Deli for the best cheese platters this side of Sydney. Vikki and Karen at the post office for taking care of my mail when I fly in with no free hands. Toby and the boys at the butchers, I don't know how I would get dinner for 5 without your help and the staff at the IGA, you cannot begin to know how much of a help it is to have someone help you carry things to the car. The ladies at the craft shop for your cakes and supplies of emergency sewing equipment, Tracie at the Garden of Roses thank you for providing our dinner on Saturday - I had no chance. The newsagent for being the best stationery cupboard a business could have. And to everyone else in the Main street who keep an eye out for me and all the other businesses, it is truly a great place to work and if I have missed anyone I apologise. 2. The CWA, thank you so much for the chairs. They were perfect. This kind of last minute help is what the CWA is all about. I am looking forward to becoming a member and thank you for your support. 3. People: As well as those previously mentioned, V Ananda Ma, my wonderful Saturday girl, a great artist and person, thank you for all your help. Julia and Jamie, Jo, Sarah, Ella, Skye, Michelle Porter, Melissa Barber, Tom and Georgie Ward, Warren Kermond OAM and Sylvie Boisel, the Parisian Sparrow herself. I know I have probably left out many other people, it is only due to a lack of sleep and a very big day and I hope to catch up with you next week. 4. All the locals who bought tickets to the day and brought friends and family with them. It felt like a party at home and I hope you all enjoyed the day as much as I did. Big thank you to my husband Jamie, my kids and parents. I will take a breath now and go and enjoy the rest of the weekend with them as I have been slightly preoccupied and they have all been very patient. Canowindra really showed my visitors this weekend what a truly wonderful country town it is. Thank you so much Kate Barclay - Bendy Street Emporium
LEADING ROLE IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT Strengthening its role as a leader in Local Government will be one the key objectives for the Wellington Blayney Cabonne Strategic Alliance over the next three years. Regarded as a model for the future of Local Government in NSW, the Alliance will strive for more innovation in co-operative arrangements when it formulates its 2010/2013 Management Plan. This was a key message when board members from Wellington, Blayney and Cabonne Councils and Central Tablelands Water held a workshop on the organisation’s future direction before their July board meeting in Wellington. Alliance Chairman and Cabonne Mayor Kevin Duffy said it was important that the WBC Alliance stayed at the forefront of Local Government trends to ensure ratepayers and residents were receiving the best value and democratic representation. He said the decision to call for tenders for a new computer system across the four Alliance Councils, plus Gilgandra Shire, was just one example where savings and benefits could be made. “Local Government Minister Barbara Perry has repeatedly told Councils that must act now to embrace change,” Cr Duffy said. “We know that in 10 years the face of Local Government will be far different from what it is today. In many ways the Alliance has set the trend for those new directions and to remain relevant we have to look at news ways to act co-operatively, save money and embrace innovation.” Recently Ms Perry has commended the work of the Alliance, saying it had had achieved significant savings and streamlining of resources in the provision of training, plant sharing, records storage, shared p l a n ni n g a rr a n g e m e n t s , information technology and asset management. Cr Duffy said the introduction of a common Information Technology system across the four Councils, the establishment of business units and common business and human resources strategies were identified as key goals for the Alliance over the next three years.

Spaghetti Squash Casserole
1 spaghetti squash 2 large carrots, diced 2 stalks celery, diced 1 large onion, diced 1 red capsicum, diced 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 large can crushed tomatoes 1 teaspoon dried basil ½ teaspoon dried oregano Pinch of ground allspice 3 cloves garlic, chopped 350g grated mozzarella ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese Place the spaghetti squash in a large pot of water (it should float) and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and boil gently for 50min. While squash is cooking, peel and slice the carrots, celery, onion and capsicum. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and add the onion and carrot, with some water to prevent sticking. Sauté over medium heat for 5min. Add remaining vegetables with s a dash of salt, if desired. Sauté, stirring frequently, till vegetables are barely tender, about 10min. Add crushed tomatoes, basil and oregano to taste, and a sprinkle of ground allspice. Squeeze in 2-5 cloves of garlic. Simmer uncovered for 15min. Meanwhile, grate the mozzarella and Parmesan. Remove squash from pot and allow to cool until you can handle it. If it is whole, cut it in half lengthwise, then remove seeds with a spoon and squeeze any excess water out of meat. Remove meat and break it up into strands with a fork or potato masher. Mix squash well with vegetables and put half in the bottom of a large baking dish. Top with half the cheeses, the rest of the squash, and then the rest of the cheeses. Bake for 30min or until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned. Let cool 15-20min before serving.

The changes to speed limits on NSW roads, as could expected, are creating instances of "road rage" caused by impatience. We all know a lack of development and poor maintenance are to blame. On the Newell Highway last Wednesday 14 July a car was tailgated by an impatient Queensland registered B-double truck, for at least 80km from Peak Hill, north towards Dubbo. At the Tomingly "Safety Cam" the space between the car and the truck was so close that the truck's front number plate would have been obscured. During the 80km journey the truck driver periodically flashed lights and blew the horn. This behaviour was because both vehicles observed the speed limit, the car could not slow down and the truck could not overtake in safety. An ulterior motive can be identified in the NSW Government 's reduction of speed limits. Heavy road freight vehicles are concentrated on the better Federally funded highways eg the Newell and Pacific Highways as light vehicles tend to find alternate routes. The reduced speed limits on roads such as the Cargo Road force traffic elsewhere thus reducing the need for maintenance. Specifically as a result traffic is being concentrated onto the Canowindra/ Cudal/Orange road which eventually carries all traffic from Forbes and Parkes into Orange. Where is the wisdom in this? Yours sincerely, Bill Barwood, Canowindra

TIGERS STILL UNDEFEATED AT HOME Canowindra Tigers have kept their undefeated home record in tact with a convincing 48-36 victory against the Peak Hill Roosters. The Tigers were never headed as they piled on eight tries. Led by Brian Moss and Kepu Nathan, the forward pack dominated the day. The Tigers led 24-12 at the break and raced away to a match winning lead midway through the second half, late in the game the Tigers were reduced to twelve men with a controversial sin binning, and the Roosters struck scoring four tries in the final minutes, but they were never going to catch the Tigers. Across the park the Tigers played as a team and kept in the ‘arm wrestle’ when needed. With Kepu, Moss and the Walkers dominating, the Tiger’s halves, Damian and Tim Kennedy had a field day setting up their runners. The Tiger’s victory was even more impressive without speedy backs Phil Butler and Sam O’Malveney. Best and Fairest Points went to Kepu Nathan, Nick Whatman, Rob Burn and Pat Kennedy. Any of the eighteen players could have received points on the day. Canowindra 48 (Kepu Nathan 3, Brian Moss, Damian Kennedy, Nick Whatman, Rob Burn, Waihe Upegueto tries. Rob Burn 8 goals) def Peak Hill 36. LEAGUE TAG: The League Tag girls enjoyed the bye. This Sunday they prepare for the Road trip to Condobolin. OPEN JUNIORS: In the Open Juniors grudge match between Canowindra and Peak Hill it was all Canowindra as they won comfortably 26-0. The Tigers led 10-0 at the break and went on with the job after half time. Most pleasing for all Tiger’s fans was the defence as they kept the talented Roosters team scoreless. Canowindra 26 (Josh Cooney 2, Karl Maere, Stuart Scott, Tom Roth tries. Stuart Scott 2, Luke Watt goals) def Peak Hill 0. ROUND 13: This Sunday the Tigers head to Condobolin in all three grades. The open juniors kick off at 11:45. The League Tag Girls 1pm and first grade 2pm. TIGER’S COMING EVENTS: Ladies day will be held on the Tigers home game against the Molong Bulls in a fortnight. All ladies attending the game will receive complementary wine in the Marquee Lounge.

BOWLS NEWS Unfortunately Steve Fisher and Jarrod Breen maintained their losing streak after being taken down by Kenny Fisher and Pat Randal in the Minor Pair Final on Saturday. In the Major 4s Vinnie Mirto’s team ended the six year reign of David Beath’s team. After an intense struggle in a tightly fought game where Mirto’s team took the lead, Wright’s team caught up 17-13 after 21 ends each. Great bowls were played on both teams. In the other game, Phil Jones’s team won on a forfeit due to an unfortunate injury to one of the other players. The Mixed Pairs draw is up on the board in the club.
