STORM HITS

Local State Emergency Service (SES) personnel had their work cut out for them over the weekend after a storm hitting Cooma and surrounds on the afternoon of Saturday November 28 resulted in 23 emergency call outs.
The Storm came through at approximately 6pm, bringing heavy rain and damaging winds to Cooma and surrounding areas and resulting in trees falling down and damage to a number of structures. Cooma SES activated two teams, one for roof repairs and one for tree clean ups.
One particular incident of a tree falling over and taking out powerlines in Doondoo Place Cooma resulted in a power outage to the North Cooma area for a time.
SES crews worked through the night Saturday and continued until around 3pm Sunday.
They are reminding people that when strong and damaging winds are forecast it is important to batten the hatches and make sure loose objects and materials are properly secured...

Cricket round four produces close matches

Bombala breaks losing spell
Dalgety hosted Bombala in round four of the MDCA competition.
Dalgety were coming off a victory and were hoping to continue that form and Bombala looking to avoid three straight defeats. Winning the toss, Bombala elected to bat. Sullivan and Brooks went about setting a big total. On a perfect batting day, runs began to flow with both batsmen taking advantage of the short square boundaries.
Sullivan was the more aggressive of the pair, keeping the scoreboard ticking over. Scoring at around five an over, the pair got to the early drinks break unbeaten. The runs continued to flow after drinks as the pair looked to consolidate their start...

$4500 TROUT CAUGHT

A former honeymoon spot proved lucky for angler Colin Dopson who has won a major prize in the Snowy Trout Challenge.
Members of the local chambers of commerce, Snowy Hydro and council representatives met with Colin, from Canberra, to present him with a cheque for $4,500 after he caught one of the top prize-winning trout in the Challenge.
Colins’ fish, caught at Lake Eucumbene, is one of two tagged prize trout worth $4,500 each, with the other still swimming around somewhere in Lake Jindabyne.
The two fish are the highest prizes of the nearly 450 tagged prize fish.
These particular cash prizes were donated by Snowy Hydro, who put $10,000 towards the initiative with five $200 merchandise packs on top of the two $4,500 cash prizes.
Colin said he felt like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory with his winning ticket, catching the fish, but admitted it took him a while to realise he’d caught a prize fish...

Volunteers gather to clean up creek

A group of environmentally-minded members of the Cooma community braved the rainy weather and met at Norris Park on Thursday afternoon November 12 for the annual Cooma Creek Clean-Up.
The annual initiative is a collaborative effort between Cooma Waterwatch and the Snowy Monaro Regional Council. It sees community members removing rubbish and detritus from the creek.
“We were pleased to find there was relatively little rubbish in the creek this time, about a third of what we normally collect. I hope it is not because the recent rains have carried it away,” Cooma Waterwatch Coordinator Antia Brademann said.

The course was brought about by the Bushfire Recovery Grant Funding, for which TAFE teacher John Hawkins expressed their appreciation.
They were also particularly grateful to the Greater Monaro ECM for letting them use their land for hands-on learning for fencing construction.

Total clearance at Anneleigh ram sale

Cathcart Poll Dorset and White Suffolk stud “Anneleigh” held their 14th annual ram sale last Friday, with a full clearance of the 133 rams on offer on the day.
The 100 Poll Dorset rams sold at an average of $1,919, with the top price ram at $3,100 purchased by the Walcott family at Delegate.
The 33 White Suffolk rams then sold at an average of $1,658, with the top priced ram at $2,700 also staying local, purchased by John Rumph from Bombala.
27 paddock rams were also sold following the sale at an average of $1,327, meaning 160 rams were sold overall at an average of $1,775.
Stud principal Iain Ford says he was very pleased with the overall result of the sale and thanked all buyers and underbidders that supported the 2020 sale.
This sale was a significant improvement on last year, which was the driest of the 140 years of records for Cathcart, with the change of season bringing about higher prices and stronger competition for the rams.
“We try to breed sheep to suit the area, we stick to what we know works here,” says Iain.
Following the fires over summer and the drought that had heavily affected the entire area, Iain is optimistic about the turnaround of conditions at home and across the district.
“Last year I don’t think I’ve seen it worse, and this year I don’t think I’ve seen a better start,” adds Iain.
“We would like to say a massive thanks to everyone for their support, we couldn’t be more appreciative to everyone for coming.”

Rezoning submissions pushed back

Feedback submissions for Snowy Monaro Regional Council’s recently proposed Rural Land Use Strategy have been pushed back from November 27 to February 1 2021 after many rural landholders throughout the region expressed their concerns on the implications of the changes to land classification around the area.
“Mayor Peter Beer today advised Council that following community feedback, discussion with SMRC Councillors and with the CEO, the Public Exhibition period for the following draft strategies be extended to 1 February 2021,” said a Council spokesperson.
Additionally, Councillor John Rooney said that residents needed more time to understand these proposals.
He added “Council should consult with individual landholders who are affected and E3 rezoning should only occur with the consent of the landholder.”

There has been no physical assessment on the land! They’re using outdated data! The values and criteria that have been sourced for EU3 in the Delegate/Bombala area is not applicable for the actual land there Zoning! Bottom line if your country subject are EU3 zoning It’s gonna be Devalued and other people will dictate what you can do if your country This country has been farmed and logged for over a 100 years

Can someone run me down on what the effects of the changes would be both good and bad and what the agenda here is?

So zones should be a patchwork? No, land should be zoned appropriately to its properties. My land is absurd as RU1 (it is not farmable) and will be appropriate as E3.

Another unnecessary layer of green beaurocracy stealing our rights to our assets by an organisation not recognised by the Australian constitution.

Looking at some of those new zoned areas that I'm familiar with, there is a lot of regrowth forest on historically cleared land. It's a drastically altered ecosystem now. At the same time there are nationally recognised 'significant wetlands' that have not been included. which raises the question 'what are they trying to protect?'

Hi Guys - It amounts to straight out property theft. No matter how they try to spin it they're converting rural use land into nature parks. We've been advised by agents that property prices are going to/have lost between 20 and 30%. From a practical perspective - even if you're not a "farmer" - you lose access to the NSW SEPP 2008 rights that go with being zoned rural use. That means your access to "exempt developments" - like the ability to just put up farm buildings (sheds) and "useful" stuff - the stuff that actually enables you to use your block. The point of an E zone is to protect the environment - so obviously it means a downgrading of your rights so that you don't "ruin" your property anymore. We care so much about how it's directly messing with our property that we've put together a website to explain why we need to stop the RLUS - have a look if you'd like to know more - StopRLUS.org

DON'T PASS US BY!

The Cooma Chamber of Commerce and Industry has started a petition to quash any possibility of a bypass to skirt around Cooma township.
Snowy Monaro Regional Council is currently seeking feedback from the community on two strategic documents that will help shape the region’s future planning priorities and guidelines.
One of these is a possible heavy vehicle alternative route for Cooma (southern bypass) connecting the Monaro Highway south of Cooma with Kosciuszko Roads/Snowy Mountains Highway to the west. Council is seeking comment as to whether a possible heavy vehicle alternative route is possible. Such a development would be a medium to long-term priority for council.
At its recent committee meeting, the chamber quizzed Mayor Peter Beer as to the likelihood of the bypass proceeding and asked what studies had been done to indicate a need for a bypass. Cr Beer said the bypass would also include a route around Berridale.

Cr Peter Beer Im still awaiting a reply to my email re Berridale bypass. I would like to publically thank those councillors who took the time to reply and call last week. Also a shout out to the members of council who have contacted me to talk about the absurd idea of a bypass through Berridale.

Often a bypass is beneficial as the town attracts those people that want to spend time and shop. Seems like alternate argument is Cooma is a shit town but if enough cars drive through someone is bound to stop and maybe buy something

This council is a one tent away from a full blown circus 🎪🙄🤦‍♀️ every time I read something that they are proposing I wonder what clowns thought of it 😂

I suspect some of the commentators here also played the chicken little card when McDonald’s was proposed! It’ll ruin small cafes and decimate the whole eating our scene in town. But no Cooma has some amazing eateries! On a Sunday afternoon in winter when traffic is backed up to the four mile only a very small percentage of the passing traffic will be prepared to stop and lose their place in line or risk not being able to get back into the traffic line up, also at these times there will be a growing trend of drivers looking for rat runs through sides street to try and beat a few cars through town. When this happens business suffers. If there is so much to love, people will stop in and statistically they will stop longer and spend more money if the pressure of the need to get back on the road is removed

Hold ya horses, trucks over 20 metres in length aren’t aloud in town. So why would you have to bypass it, don’t worry about fatigue, after Bairnsdale there is no where to stop and get a coffee if your a Truckie, don’t worry about the Truckie they only supply everything in your house, the whole shire has nothing to offer interstate drivers, which is an absolute joke

Just hope you shop keepers and rate payers remember some of these screwie ideas and who on Council voted for them and vote accordingly in the next Council elections.

Oh look bypass every town but Jindabyne! Isn’t that a surprise 😱

What a great way to waste money so they can get them same amount back next year or however it works and absolutely Barry the little towns of New South Wales wake up

Any body asked what the cost is And because we dealing with public service we can double the cost Do not change our town change council

Ummmmm..? Correct me if I'm wrong.... cooma is desperate for people to pass through and more importantly spend money....? Did I not recently see how some idiots were fighting tooth and nail to stop development of an area where (RICH PEOPLE) that own mobile homes & such was squashed.? 🤯😳 Honestly people you really need to get your s*** together. Braindead...!

Fantastic idea ,about time the bypasses were built ,should have been done for snowy2. Towns like Bega and Yass are doing well after they were bypassed. Get with the times.

No way, a bypass kills off the chance of actually getting money during snow season! Cooma relies on the snow season and travellers to make money! With a bypass everyone in a hurry to get to the snow will not stop! We need to keep the money in town. I'd rather see the council put money to more useful resources instead of blowing the budget.

All a by pass will deliver is closed shops and smother businesses and employment

No bypass as they kill businesses in townships

By passes are the best thing for small towns, it reduces unnecessary traffic and ppl can freely come in to town to use the devices. Why would you want to stop it?

Merimbula bypass and they’re still busy.

1st no train now no traffic, 😱

not a good idea

Good go 4 it sooner the better

No by-passes

Isn't Cooma The Gateway to The Snowy Mountains?

A bypass would alleviate the bottle neck of winter traffic that extends back to the airport, just my two Bob's worth

Henry Grant

I smell something fishy

But you could close off the main road through town and make it like a Mall. It would be so nice the reastrunts could really brand out with the outdoor seating, little pop stalls. Market days in the whole street.

Junior basketball season comes to an end

STALLIONS NEW COACH

With the signing of former NRL hooker Aaron Gorrell to the Club for the 2021 season as first grade captain-coach, the excitement is building early within the Cooma Stallions playing group and their supporters for next season.
“I’m looking forward to it, my body feels good and I’m looking forward to getting amongst a new crew and making something exciting happen,” said Aaron following his appointment at the Club.
The former Dragons and Broncos dummy- half played 60 NRL matches between 2002 and 2009, and also had a two-year stint at English Super League’s French based Club
Catalans Dragons, where he played 24 top grade matches in 2007/08.
Since finishing with the Broncos at the end of 2009, he spent 10 seasons at the Queanbeyan Roos, as a captain-coach until 2017, and as head coach up until 2020.
In his tenure with the Roos, he experienced premiership glory three times, in 2010, 2011 and 2013.

Last run for the Nimmity posties

After 15 years in the area and 13 years servicing the nearly 500 mailboxes in Nimmitabel, Kybeyan, Ando, Rock Flat and everywhere in-between, Michael and Lola Ellis are retiring from their mail delivery run.
With two separate out-of-town runs, and a service to Nimmitabel town, every day, they have clocked up countless thousands of kilometres in their trusty Subaru Foresters.
“One of the greatest things we’ve gotten out of it all has been the people we’ve met,” says Michael.
“We’d like to thank the people of the community for their help, their understanding and their friendship, it’s been really great, and that’s the thing we are going to miss,” where Michael’s words of goodbye.
“I’d just like to thank them all for the wonderful time I’ve had here with them,” adds Lola.
Michael, a heavy vehicle instructor and coach driver, has spent a life on the road, and is looking forward to adding Lola to his travels as they embark on a “Grey Nomad” lifestyle going forward...

Housing crisis

The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic coupled with an influx of people moving to Cooma and the region for Snowy 2.0 has resulted in an increased demand for rental properties.
This is good news for home- owners, but challenging for renters and people on a low income.
The added economic challenge presented by Covid and the loss of jobs across a number of industries has led some to declare that Cooma is facing an accommodation crisis.
According to Mission Australia’s Acting Regional Leader for South Eastern NSW Daniel Strickland, the demand for affordable accommodation and in turn, Mission Australia’s accommodation support services has never been higher.
“We’ve been operating in the Cooma area for years, and we’ve definitely seen a higher demand for our services this year than we ever have before,” Mr Strickland said.
“Not only is the current climate forcing people into more and more difficult financial situations, but there’s also currently no real access to affordable accommodation for people who are on new-starter or are in a low-income situation....

‘Ian’ released after bushfire recovery

Ian the koala, named after one of the firefighter pilots killed in the air tanker crash in January, was released at Peak View on Friday.
Three American air crew members, Ian McBeth, Paul Hudson and Rick DeMorgan Jr, lost their lives when the water bomber they were flying crashed into a hill on January 23.
On Friday Drew Cunnar, Lieutenant Colonel US Airforce, Air Attache to the US Embassy in Canberra, helped release the koala named after his friend at the Two Thumbs Wildlife Sanctuary.
“It was a very emotional experience,” said Lt Col Cunnar.
“Ian was a very close friend and someone I looked up to. Releasing the koala from the bag and watching him climb a few steps up the tree and then look back at us, I really did feel as though Ian’s spirit was living in that animal.”
Lt Col Cunnar previously visited the sanctuary with Ian’s
family after the accident, but he says this was the first time he was able to take time to reflect on the seriousness of the bushfires while there.

Our cover photo for the rest of this month is a shot taken inside the recently restored "Stables" at the St Patricks Parish Church and presbytery site.

The site that was once a home for horses, is now a stylish two-bedroom home with an open living, dining and kitchen space downstairs.

There is a feature on this building (along with many others around the region) in our upcoming Innovation Magazine, which will be inserted into The Monaro Post on Wednesday 18th November.

Rhythm embraces new demand for mountain bikes

Saturday November 7 saw Rhythm Snowsports in Cooma celebrate the grand opening of a brand-new summer section of the store focussing on mountain bikes and including a range of outdoor wares such as tents, outerwear and hiking gear.
“The inspiration for this new direction for the store came from a number of fronts,” Rhythm founder and owner Mick Klima said.
“The recent upgrade of the Mt Gladstone mountain bike track undoubtedly was one factor, but also the impact of Covid, not just for us, but for the mountain-bike industry as a whole. The pandemic has placed a lot of pressure on the manufacturing of bikes and parts and resulted in high-demand...

Cricket resumes after the big wet

Rhythm vs Bombala
After two consecutive weeks of wash outs, Rhythm Cooma and Bombala played their second 45 over matches of the season on Saturday, after both having wins in round one.
Rhythm captain Kaeliff Khoury had no hesitation in batting first on what looked like a top deck to bat on, with Warren Thornton and George Power taking the new ball for the visitors.
After an accurate start Thornton drew first blood, bowling Haylock for 1 with a swinging Yorker that bought Glen Young to the crease with the score at 1-9.
He and opener Hynes began to get going, both finding the boundary and accumulating quickly. Just as he looked to go on for a big innings, Hynes (25) picked out Mark Tonks at mid-wicket to give Power (2-36) his first wicket.
David Watson joined Young and the two immediately looked comfortable, punishing anything short from Scott Ingram and Mick Sullivan.
When Young (29) fell just before drinks and Watson (27) straight after to the bowling of Sullivan (2-22) and Adams (2-43, Rhythm needed someone to steer the ship with two new batsmen and the score at 4-96...
