Mick celebrates 40 years as an ambo

Mick Couvee has celebrated his 40th year as a paramedic, and says he still enjoys it just as much as when he first started.
Mick first got into the job in 1980, after hearing about it from his brother, who had become a paramedic after being an army medic.
Mick says he remembers going for that first interview in Quay Street in Sydney.
“There were five other guys there,” says Mick.
“Two of them had really long hair, one was wearing thongs, and I was in a suit. I remember being interviewed by the then Super Intendent, and he was smoking the entire time. Things have changed a lot since then.”
Stationed at Liverpool for six years, Mick then moved to Moruya and spent the next 22 years in the Eurobodalla...

Positives from pandemic for oncology unit

Despite the extra demands of COVID-19, Cooma Hospital has seen some positive changes as a result of the pandemic, particularly the Oncology Unit.
According to a Southern NSW Local Health District spokesperson, the up-take of telehealth throughout the local area has been welcomed by patients and clinicians.
The local service is conducting multiple telehealth consultations for patients each week, saving users up to four hours return travel time to Canberra for a 10 minute appointment.
The successful use of telehealth has been made possible by the introduction of the new Mosaiq electronic booking and notes system. This application allows information to be stored quickly and accurately, while being accessed by clinicians across all of the district’s oncology units...

A very sad start to the long weekend. We diverted along Dry Plains Rd in our 4WD and Caravan. It is a very windy, steep and at times single lane only. All drivers were very courteous and pulled over for us to pass. Thank you.

I arrived just after it happened, looks as thou the car pulled out of Flynns wreckers and into the path of the tipper/dog trailer... Very sad.

Piggies fight their way to grand final

The Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs are through to the South Coast Monaro second division grand final after a thrilling last-minute 13-11 victory in Bungendore.
Jindabyne trailed Bungendore for most of the match, however sustained pressure in the dying minutes led to a try in the right corner by winger Cooper Swan, securing the win in the elimination semi-final.
The win was the second in as many weeks over the previously undefeated Bungendore outfit, who claimed the minor premiership in first place on the ladder.
The Bushpigs now advance to the grand final from fourth place, to take on second-placed Taralga in Taralga.

Canberra to Eden rail not feasible

Months after the intended due date, the NSW State Government has released the findings of the $1 million Canberra to Eden railway feasibility study, which claims the project is not viable from a cost/benefit perspective.
The Executive Summary states: “There would be little if any return on investment. Project benefits are derived primarily from the freight and passenger demands that can be attracted to the corridor and directed to the Port of Eden.
“Even on the most optimistic demand assumptions with significant freight diverted from other NSW ports the demand projections for the full project, from Canberra Airport to Port of Eden, only generate benefits of $225.8m over the life of the project, compared against a cost to achieve this benefit of $5,447.6m.

What happened to providing transport for the taxpayers of the state? It would open up southern NSW to work in Canberra and take them off the road plus tourist dollars would roll in for those towns along the route especially Cooma for snow, people from Darwin and Perth fly to Canberra to then catch train to the snow, how easy. Most of the infrastructure is there, just needs updating. Build it and they shall come!! Instead spend money in Sydney as always.

I wonder if the cost of trucking everything out of a city bound Port Botany was taken into consideration. Eden’s noncongested location and deep water port is the key cost saver ignored in this study.

Told ya so. They dont care, it shouldn't be about generating profit, it should be about servicing the community and creating an asset for future generations...... Not bloody money. All up to CMR now if you ever want to see trains there again.

I wonder if they factored in the savings that fewer road deaths and the reduction of road repairs would bring to name a couple?

There used to be a time when Australia would stand up and say it is a folly but lets do it any way. This is the attitude that built the nation with big thinking ideas like the snowy mountains scheme but not anymore we live in the land of bean counters and bottom liners. Visionaries of the profit not the imagination.

This study reeks of yes minister thought we also wanted to reduce emmissions this rail would take so many cars off the road

Rural NSW once again treated like a 3rd world country. Can spend billions on a stupid light rail in Sydney but can't fund a railway for struggling country towns that would thrive from this sort of infrastructure. Typical.

Bring on the rail trail and tourism benefits

I could’ve told them that for free. Just fix the bloody roads and put the speed limit up a bit.

Does the report "cost" the reduced greenhouse gas emissions of getting that freight to Canberra by train instead of truck or plane? Or is the only "cost" the profit that a business can make?

The government charged $1000000 for a negative response. I already said it would never happen and that cost nothing. 👍👍

Very disappointing negative result, from a very expensive study, which did not take into account, the actual benefits to country people and to their businesses!!!

Nope, easy to figure country rail is only viable with long term contracts over big distances.

Should never have closed the Bombala line in the first place! Short sighted.

Canberra to cooma??????

Hate to say it, but when this feasibility study was first talked about, i didn't think it was going to happen, it's a shame.

So short-sighted and seems to NOT have followed the orginal reason i.e. freight!

Wow $1000000 feasibility study. Must be good wasted pay. Shame though

Surprise, surprise. But at least some mates of government have gone away with a bucket of money for the non feasability study that was very predictable.

No one every thought that would happen! FFS

They could have paid me a lot less and I would have told them the same thing.

Rail trail!!! Go!

It would seem we have just spent $1M to tell us what most people already knew

Its all about bloody cost Thiught we needed projects to help unemployed??????

If only the commmunity would get behind the local railway museum right in the middle of town. You'd have trains, really cool vintage ones, running again... Sigh

Bushpigs defeat Bungendore at home

The Lake Jindabyne Hotel Bushpigs hosted Bungendore in the final round of the regular season last Saturday.
Bungendore came to Jindabyne with the minor premiership all but secured, being undefeated thus far including their 22-14 win over the Bushpigs in Bungendore only four weeks prior.
The Bushpigs had edged back into the top four after last week’s win, and today’s result would unlikely have an impact on the semi final ladder placings, with Taralga clear in second and Braidwood needing a win over Yass to claim third.
But there was still plenty at stake, with both clubs knowing they’ll likely face off in an elimination semi final in a week’s time, and therefore eager to take momentum into that match.
Bungendore tested the Bushpigs early on through their big midfield and strong back row. Yet the Bushpigs held firm to generally get the lion’s share of early possession and field position.
The first points of the match came when Liam Pepper won a turnover from a Bungendore hit up inside their own half. On the next phase the Bushpigs spread it wide with fly half Henry Schofield throwing a beautiful pass to centre Jared Cummins running a nice line through the scrambling Bungendore defence to dive over wide on the right side.
Bungendore continued to apply pressure out wide, making inroads deep into the Bushpigs half. As they looked close to score, centre Jared Cummins intercepted and booted the ball down field...

Cooma Nines play Round One

The Cooma Pub Nines competition got underway on the weekend, with the first of three rounds played at the Showground on Sunday.
The first match saw Buckleys Crossing come up against the Cooma Ex-Services Club.
The match was free-flowing early on, with tries to Corey Fay for Buckleys and Nic Zusak for the Ex-Services off the back of strong attacking sets.
The Ex-Services Jake Hedger scored one of the tries of the day down the left wing, with his team mate Jack Johnson also scoring a long range try to give them a comfortable win.
The Cooma Hotel took on the Banjo Patterson Inn in the second match of the afternoon in a high-scoring clash that saw the Banjo come out on top.
The Cooma started well with tries to Tom Maxwell, Luke Rixon and Noah Saddler, taking a slim lead at the end of the first quarter.
The middle quarters were ones to forget for the Cooma, as the Banjo dominated possession and began to rack up a big lead...

Teyarnea’s story becomes movement

Teyarnea Griffis’ mental health awareness series ‘Our Story’ has grown to become The 15:19 Movement. Teyarnea, from Cooma, started a series last year featuring photographs and stories told by people who have experienced mental illness.
Providing a safe space, Teyarnea wanted to spread awareness and let others who have experienced mental ill health know they are not alone.
After publishing nine stories on her photography website, Teyarnea and her fiancé Bec are now preparing to launch The 15:19 Movement.
A social media based project, The 15:19 Movement will involve republishing the stories, and expanding to include new ones. It will also provide daily inspirational quotes and help connect followers to different resources.
The name The 15:19 Movement has been inspired by Our Story. O is the 15th letter in the alphabet, and S is the 19th.
Growing up in a regional community, Teyarnea is passionate about helping other people who have limited mental health services available to them.
“The 15:19 Movement is really about spreading awareness, starting conversations and helping to empower people,” says Teyarnea.
“We will also be selling some merchandise, including hoodies and t-shirts, with a percentage of the profits going to a mental health organisation...

Proud of you Teyarnea Griffis xx

💜

I have bi polar and major depression, I asked my g.p for help as I could feel myself slipping fast into a deep dark hole .a referral was made to a mental health group I was assessed and they agreed I would benefit from their care. I was relieved asnd wanted to get started.i asked how soon I would hear from them to my horror I was told a wait of 4 to 5 Months was expected. W.t.f. how am I expected to wait that long when I need the help Now.where is all the millions of dollars the govt has assigned to help mental health .o viously it isn't for us in the country .this situation is a disgrace and how many sufferers will die waiting for the help they need.we need to speak up and make our needs known.

Super proud of you, Teyarnea 🥰

Author calls for explanation on Bundian Way bulldozing damage

Eden-based writer and naturalist John Blay and the Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council are calling for accountability and rehabilitation after a 12-kilometre stretch of the Bundian Way was bulldozed without authorisation sometime during the summer fires.
According to Mr Blay, the damage has impacted not only at a cultural level, but also an environmental and potentially economic level. At least one indigenous cultural artefact site has been destroyed, as have the popular groves of waratahs along Waratah Gully.
“These were remarkably beautiful plants. They were a special form of Telopea oreades, the tree or Gippsland waratah, at the northern limit of its natural range,” Mr Blay said.
“They were a big tourist attraction for Bombala. National Parks had made a campsite nearby so visitors could stay there and visit the groves which represented an important aspect of the park’s values. Why would people want to visit now?”
Blay’s book Wild Nature devotes a chapter to the gully, its special waratahs and their relationships with other wildlife. According to him, this part of the Coolangubra was found to have the highest density of arboreal mammals in the world and today, not even the greater gliders would be capable of soaring across the bulldozed gap in the forest...

Unfortunetely with the massive fires we had, Firies, National Parks & everyone else involved had to do what they could to save lives & did an absolutely awesome job while facing death themselves. With the ferocious fires that were all around, these brave men & woman would'nt of had time to stop & check for sacred artifacts for gods sake. Yes, its a damn shame this has happened, but this isn't about deliberate acts of violence, negligence or how much money can be gained from criminal activity. It was all about saving lives, both human & animals at the time. Until you have actually faced the horrific brutality of these fires with their own weather patterns don't sit in judgement of the brave men & woman who were out there day & night making fire breaks & battling 100ft high flames to save the rest of us & our towns. In conditions like that they could'nt see in front of themselves let alone the ground...

Was probably done to try stopping the horrific fires as you can see were it is burnt would sooner see this than what happened at Kiandra and selwyn

Section 44 is authorization, the article is wrong in saying without authorization. It’s very sad that many things got damaged in the fires, pointing fingers won’t bring them back.

What a fukn joke everything would have burnt and died with out the containment lines in place and killed all the bloody animals they are talking about plus possibly people.

John Blay isn't Aboriginal so what's it got to do with him. His making money off the Traditional Custodians storylines. He does not ask permission to use their storylines either. I'm guessing that it was bulldozed to save human lives.

I’m guessing the National Sparks n wildfires have some explaining to do

George you serious mate !

What does this mean for the Bundian way trail now?

WTF 😈😈

Bradley Manton Raymond Williams Zenda Manton check this shit out

What a fukn disgraceful act of violence and another slap in the face of the local Indigenous peoples of our region. Surely this is criminal or at the very least negligence.

And the rest of the warratah's. There is an opportunity to employ local indigenous people to help rehabilitate the area and so learn more about their country in the process. The public should stop whinging ane look to the opportunities provided.

It’s a Bit hard to tell from the photo but did this area get burnt by the fires ? Because they look fire damaged to me, which means the ‘fire break’ or ‘track to access the fires’ that was bulldozed along 12 Kms was essential to saving lives . The Waratah will grow back what the fires didn’t disintegrate. As for the indigenous artifacts / sites , it’s not a good thing if the area is damaged or destroyed but in a crisis such as the 2020 bushfires what is more important ?, human lives or artifact?

This is inexcusable; cultural and environmental vandalism; to the arrogant idiot who did this, hang your head in shame; your insensitive selfish action has hurt many people. I hope the police find you and that your name is made public.

What a fucking joke!! Save lives and house or let some animals aboriginal land burn to nothing!! Then cunt have done nothing for our country anyway!!

JAG host meeting with Member for Eden-Monaro, Kristy McBain

Last Friday September 18 representatives of Jindabyne Action Group (JAG) hosted a community meeting welcoming members of the public to address issues within the local area to the Member for Eden-Monaro, Kristy McBain.
Many representatives from local community groups asked Kristy the hard-hitting questions surrounding issues that are a constant source of concern.
Groups including JAG, Climate Action Monaro, Alpine Uniting Church and Op Shop, Jindabyne Chamber of Commerce, Upper Snowy Landcare, Jindabyne East Residents Committee (JERCs), Reclaim Kozi and more attended the special meeting in attempts to get heard.
JAG representative Olivier Kapetanakos opened the meeting introducing Kristy before the questions immediately surrounded current issues and what exactly the Commonwealth, opposed to the State, can do for the community.
Major topics of discussion included the fight for more accessible footpaths in the township, establishing a hospital base, the controversial topic of climate change, securing land for an aged care facility, the wild brumbies situation and more.
Visiting the area since she was 14 years old, Kristy explains it has been amazing to see the changes over the many years though she is aware of major concerns and is here to listen to the community and give them a voice within government.
A local resident addressed Kristy asking how other towns with a lower population, including Batlow and Tumbarumba, both have hospitals and the township of Jindabyne does not...
