Still fighting to ‘Save Bombala’

There has been an apparent policy backflip on council demergers by the State Government, giving the Save Bombala group further hope that a local demerger may be possible.
Earlier this month Minister Shelley Hancock announced that the Gundagai and Tumbarumba demerge petitions were valid and that the matters would be…

Is this a pretend promise like, the swimming pool upgrade in Bombala, oh and the 16 million to fix our water, the council and John Barilaro are so full of shit, hell has a special place for them.

Put a roundabout near bws for when all the creeks are flooded that would be a better option

Yeah cause a roundabout will work really well there when trying to turn right out of polo flat North bound in a b double. 🤦‍♂️

How about a roundabout on the intersection at rhythm. For as long as I can remember it’s been a right pain in the arse in winter trying to come off Hilton street as well as not being able to see the traffic cause everyone parks along the curb in front of rhythm making it near impossible to see what’s coming. 🤦🏽‍♀️

A set stop lights in winter to slow the traffic down so we can get out of our drive ways

Bandaids always drop off after a few hours or a day....expect this not to be enough after a short while too. Bypass once and for all!

I just wish the trucks would stop using air breaks at the 4 mile!!

Bombala carnival set to return

The Bombala community has been mourning the loss of its annual Street Carnival for a number of years, but in very exciting news, the carni is on its way back!
The Bombala & District Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with both the Bombala Rotary and Lions Clubs to get the carnival back on its feet, and they’re starting with a fledgling event on December 13.
IN PRIZES
“We’ve got some really exciting things planned, and while this is just the start, and we have a long way to go, this will pave the way for the Street Carnival to return in full force,” Chamber President, Zoe Joseph said.
Echoing the much loved street carnival, the main street of Bombala will be closed on the evening of December 13, with late night shopping and a shop local campaign launch being the backbone of the night.
There will also be a very exciting Christmas Disco put on by the Cosmo Cafe, and if the recent Halloween Disco is anything to go by, families will be coming out in droves to enjoy the festive fun.
Mrs Claus will be found spreading extra cheer at the disco, while the big man himself will be visiting the street to top things off!
While everyone will have the chance to see Santa, there will also be some wonderful stalls and face painting for the kids, and of course lots of great options for dining in the main street.
And did we mention the chocolate wheel? The ham raffles were always a big favourite with the Bombala Street Carnival crowd, and many will be thrilled to see the chocolate wheel whirring around again to give everyone a chance to win.

FIRE THREATENED TO SPREAD
At approximately 12:15pm last Friday 29 November, a grass fire broke out behind the Snow Season Motor Inn (previously the Marlborough Motor Inn) on the corner of the Monaro Hwy and Solomon Lane in Cooma, resulting in the total destruction of two disused buildings and further damages to surrounding buildings, bush and grassland.
Suspected to have potentially been started as a result of arson, the grass fire quickly spread to the CYTA (Pacific) Lodge of the Snow Season Motor Inn.
There was severe fire danger and a total fire ban in place on the day, and despite the immediate response from local Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue units, the CYTA Lodge was quickly engulfed in flame and could not be saved..... Read the full story on page 3 of today's Monaro Post.

I'm not trying to start an argument or stir shit here but I have to say this. I did a few deliveries in the Maryborough Gympie area only 9 months ago. And the place was the greenest I have seen it in so many years. Even Gympie dry Old Gympie was a flourishing green pasture and the entire region around it was lovely and green. After the massive storms in Townsville and the North coast most of that region had more water then even Brisbane did? So how did it become so dry so damn quick and so little time I mean to say I've grown up in Queensland most my life and I never seen anything like this before and I've seen a lot so what the fuck is going on and seriously think about this something is not right here.

Helping animal victims...
With hundreds of thousands of hectares of bushland burnt and over 500 homes destroyed, the bushfires in northern NSW and QLD are some of the worst in living memory.
As well as the damages to homes and communities, the fires have taken a heavy toll on populations of native wildlife. While an official death toll is impossible, it is estimated to be well into the millions.
Cooma local Narelle Morgan decided to answer a call put out by animal rescue organisation, the rescue collective, asking for donations and supplies.
“I thought I’d see if there was support from the local community, so I put it on facebook and I got a really good response. Everyone wanted to help,” Narelle explained.
She established drop-off points at Jindabyne Mitre 10, Berridale Post Office as well as at her own workplace of Monaro Freight in Cooma.
Monaro Freight Owner and Manager Marco Revelant donated transportation to Sydney and another freight company called Daniel Trucking donated the rest of the transportation from Sydney to Coffs Harbour.
Tracies Café in East Jindabyne, the Cooma Pet Shop and Laoko were also collecting supplies to send north and after hearing of Narelle was doing, the four combined their efforts.
People from across the region were inspired to support the cause, making donations to send north. By the time they were ready for transport, there were more than two full pallets worth of
milk replacers, paw paw cream, bandages, syringes, animal pellets and more, all ready to be taken north.
“Organising freight was the easy part,” Narelle said.
“The hard part was asking people to put their hands in their pockets and donate, because so many people around here are doing it hard too because of the drought.”
Narelle wanted to express her appreciation to all the individuls, as well as Agriwest Cooma South East Rural, Elders and Landmark who made donations.
“Without them I wouldn’t have had anything to send,” Narelle said.

COOMA So Much to LUV .....go you good things. XOXO

Super proud to have played a part in this wonderful initiative

Fantastic effort...some fire affected people have sadly resorted to dishonesty to feed there animals ... hopefully now this will cease when these donations are delivered

Terrific effort to all involved. We are certainty part of a lovely caring community.

Well done Narelle & everyone in Cooma & surrounds who helped in any way. I'm sure it will all be appreciated.👏👏

Well done

CWA supporting “Ladies of the Land”.....

“For country women, by country women.” So goes the last line of the Country Women’s Association (CWA) motto. A motto the Jindabyne (Day) branch has upheld through their latest venture, “Ladies of the Land”.
Eighteen shoe boxes were lined with festive tissue paper then packed to the top with
‘treats’ such as lovely toiletries, little gifts, special teas, sweets, lipsticks, tasty biscuits and more. To finish off, a Christmas card was put on top. The boxes were then wrapped in newspaper, as requested – pages from the Monaro Post in fact, and tied up with ribbon. President Dale Whitfield delivered the completed
boxes to Cheryl O’Toole at the “Ladies of the Land” collection point in Cooma.
A transport company from Queanbeyan has volunteered to transport the boxes to Orange where they will be distributed to women who need them the most.
