Shame to see it go but if the numbers don’t stack up. Each individual store needs to provide a return/ profit.

Police accidentally shoot family pet

A Cooma family’s pet dog was accidentally shot and killed by a local police officer while euthanising an injured kangaroo in Nioka Place, Cooma North, on Wednesday September 9.
Nicole Byrne arrived at her property in Nioka Place to find a seriously injured kangaroo in the front driveway.
LAOKO Wildlife Rescue had already been contacted by the neighbours, but they were unable to euthanise the animal due to it being in a residential area, so the matter was referred instead to the police.
Nicole waited in her car at the end of the driveway until police arrived, at which point she went next door to comfort the neighbour’s children while an officer went to euthanise the injured kangaroo with his police-issue sidearm. The animal had by then moved down the side of the property along a steel fence facing Snowy Oval.
“I went to keep the neighbour’s kids company while it was being done. Then I heard the two gunshots,” Nicole said.
“After hearing the shots, I started back across to my place and as I was coming down the driveway I heard the officer say ‘oh my god, I’ve shot a dog.’”
The dog was a six-year-old terrier-cross named Chloe, the beloved pet of Nicole’s youngest son Cory.
At the time of the shooting, the kangaroo was in front of a steel fence, on the other side of which was Chloe. The bullets passed through the kangaroo and through the fence...

He must of missed the roo on the first shot, a roo's head is very dense and would have pulled the projectile up fairly quickly.

Oh my gosh, Nic & Cory, I am so sorry! 🙁 This is absolutely tragic! x

What a tragedy. My sincere condolences to the family. RIP Chloe 💜

Very sad I know how attached everyone gets to their animals. Give Cory a hug from us please xxx

So horrible! And on another note! What if this had of been a child? Shouldn’t what they are shooting into be taken into account?!

Lucky there wasn't a kid on the otherside of the fence!

Oh my goodness, poor Chloe , sorry to hear this Nicole.

What a fucking ridiculous mistake. A lack of training is apparent here

😳 why on earth didn’t they check. There could have been anything behind the fence?!?

What a fucking joke, sorry for your loss! Lucky it wasn’t a child or someone on the other side

So careless of the officer & tragic for the family

Oh no, this is awful for everyone. I’m so sorry to hear it!

So sorry for the loss of their beloved fur baby.

Oh my gosh Cory and Nicole sending my love to you both. This is so horrible, I can’t imagine how this felt 😩💓

Oh Nicole I am so sorry how heartbreaking!

Should of really checked where his bullet was going to travel. Police aren't trained very well with their weapons

So tragic & Bloody disgraceful

Oh Nic and Cory, I am so sorry for your loss 💕💕

Not good enough he should have checked first!! Like everyone else is saying what if it was a child on the other side!!!!

He obviously didn’t think his actions though clearly

Stupid mistake ! Obviously doesn't understand basic firearms safety. Revoke his license !

How could he have accidentally done that ??? unbelievable..

Dont ring the cops ppl are under the impression they actually know what they are doing, but they make it worse! Should've just rang a neighbor with a gun!

Sadly agree with he ought to have checked the other side of the fence. What if were a child?

Omg this is just a horrible tragedy

SEPP ‘JUST BULLYING’

Last week’s political stoush within the NSW Coalition has settled down, at least for the moment.
The catalyst for the incident, the State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) Koala policy, has been labelled by local grazier Michael Green as city bullying of the regions.
Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro threatened to pull his National Party colleagues out of joint party room or parliamentary meetings until there was more discussion and consultation on the SEPP Koala Habitat Protection.
However, following a meeting on Friday morning between the Premier and Deputy Premier, the NSW Liberal & Nationals Coalition remains in place.
This includes a commitment to supporting Cabinet conventions and processes.
The matter will be dealt with at an upcoming Cabinet meeting...

NSW Nationals Media Statement on Koala SEPP

The NSW Nationals party room has today agreed the party will no longer attend joint party room or parliamentary leadership meetings and until this matter is resolved, will abstain from voting on government bills but reserves the right to support bills and motions that are important to regional NSW.
This effectively puts the entire party on the crossbench.
On Tuesday the NSW Nationals will introduce a bill to the Legislative Assembly to repeal the State Environmental Planning Policy Koala Habitat Protection.
The National Party wants to see a thriving koala population in NSW, even a doubling of the population, but this SEPP does not achieve this. It is a blunt instrument to make city-centric law makers feel good about themselves.
For six months the NSW Nationals have sought to work collaboratively with the Liberal Party to ensure the State Environmental Planning Policy Koala Habitat Protection, which has replaced the Koala Habitat Protection (SEPP44), does not take away farmers’ property rights.
The National Party brought forward a number of constructive and reasonable proposals but unfortunately the response from the Liberal Party suggests a lack of urgency and unwillingness to give ground on any substantive matters that greatly affect our regional communities.
Our proposed changes include:
Ensure the definition of ‘core’ koala habitats includes thresholds for koala presence, verified records and highly suitable koala habitat.
Include only high use and significant use koala tree species consistent with the Koala Habitat Information Base Technical Guide.
Increase the number of core koala trees species from 10 to 39.
A clear and reasonable definition of highly suitable koala habitat. The old SEPP required a 30 per cent threshold of tree species, the new SEPP proposes 15 per cent and the Nationals propose a 30 per cent threshold based on the increase of tree species.
The decoupling of Private Native Forestry from the Koala SEPP.
Rural regulated land and agricultural production should come under the land management framework, operating outside of the SEPP.
Local councils must be required to undertake on-ground surveys in areas of proposed core koala habitat on private land.
The costs of survey work must be borne by local councils, including costs associated with an independent survey commissioned by a landholder.
Councils must be required to amend areas of core koala habitat based on landholder surveys provided these are consistent with methods in the Guidelines.
The survey methods must be the same for landholders and Councils and be clearly set out in the Guidelines.
We must protect property rights, traditional farming practices, private native forestry and the ability for landholders to conduct minor developmental changes without being mired in layers of green tape.
Our proposed changes will support koalas, but the SEPP in its current form will not support our farmers.

So they’re fighting koala protection to support farmers but voted against water ownership transparency, which would have highlighted the corruption around water access for farmers. Seems like the National party are more concerned about self serving political games then they are about regional and rural Australia

New Snowy Mountains MTB Tracks

There is now 18 kilometres of beginner, intermediate and advanced trail riding available at the Mount Gladstone Mountain Bike Park, with a new map released by the Snowy Monaro Shire Council showcasing the available terrain for riders at the park, located just outside Cooma.
Recent grant funding and work from the Council, as well as the Snowy Mountains Mountain Bike Club volunteers has seen approximately 11km of new trail thanks to $250,000 worth of funding for design and construct from the Community Sports Program and Stronger Country Communities Fund. This includes a new climbing trail from the start of the trails, located just off the Greendale Road, to the highest point, as well as two new descending trails.
The Club is already a popular one in the Cooma area, with these improvements set to increase the intake of local and visiting riders at all times of the year.
“The park has attracted visitors from outside the region and offers year-round riding and has also had enquiries for mountain bike events. The new trail network at Mt Gladstone is expected to boost to the local tourism economy” says SMRC Recreation Planner Alannah Dickeson on the improvements to the park.
She is also appreciative of the assistance from the local Mountain Bike Club and their willingness to play a part in the project...

Hazeldean tops at $22,000

Hazeldean has ended their bull selling season with a top price of $22,000 and an average of $10,910 at their on-property Cooma sale on September 3.
The Litchfield family offered 89 bulls on the day, all of which were highly sought after. The top-priced bull, Hazeldean P361, was purchased by Indian Creek Pastoral, Tumut.
The bull was a sire the Litchfields were reluctant to part with, the two-year-old only subbed in from the ‘keeper pen’ after a withdrawal.
He was by Ardrossan Justice NAQJ93 and out of a Hazeldean Jaipur J140 daughter.
The heaviest bull of the draft, tipping the scales at 956kg, he had an eye-muscle area estimated breeding value of +7.8 and scrotal of +3.3.
Hazeldean’s Bea Bradley Litchfield said he had been semen collected and they would look to use him in their program.
“He’s just an absolute stand-out phenotypically, I was a little hesitant to sell him but he’s gone to a good home and will do well there,” she said...

Howard on the mend

After six weeks in hospital, Howard Charles is back home in Cooma with wife Anne, with a positive outlook on the future and his recovery from his accident with the Nimmity Bell in July.
“I’m in good shape and everything is mending well,” says Howard, who will have a prosthetic leg fitted in Canberra this week and rehabilitation from the end of this month.
“I’ve had very little pain and been really well looked after, and the support of friends and family has been amazing.”
Howard thanks all of those who have reached out to him with cards, calls and well-wishes since the accident.
Howard spent five days in Cooma Hospital and aside from the prosthetic fitting in Canberra will be home for the next fortnight.
“It’s been great to have a stint here in Cooma, and even better to have it from home.
“I’m very lucky to be alive at all and I’m determined to make the most of every opportunity going forward.”...

Life membership honour for Jan

After 21 years of active service, Jan Carpenter has been awarded a Life Membership with the United Hospital Auxiliaries of NSW.
Jan joined the Cooma Hospital Auxiliary in 1999. After becoming ill and spending 10 days in the hospital, Jan felt she wanted to give back.
Jan was elected as the secretary and publicity officer for the Cooma auxiliary in 2004 and only stepped down as secretary last year. She is still the current publicity officer and also the current vice president.
The Cooma auxiliary has raised more than $400,000 during the time Jan has been involved, using it to purchase much-needed equipment for the hospital to use.
“I am most proud of the fundraising we have achieved, with such a small membership on the auxiliary,” says Jan.
“We are fortunate to live in such a generous community. There is always fundraising going on from all different groups and organisations, and yet the community is always willing to give.
“We are also lucky to have such a wonderful facility at the Cooma Hospital, which really benefits all of the Monaro as the first point of call for everyone who lives in the area.”
Current president Sue Litchfield nominated Jan for the Life Membership.
“Jan has worked consistently, conscientiously and tirelessly as the backbone of the auxiliary,” says Sue.
“She is a loyal, hardworking and committed auxiliary member, and a true example of holding high the lamp of service for the welfare of our local hospital.
“She has shown much generosity for the auxiliary, often refusing to claim expenses incurred as a result of her executive role...

New president, committee for mcCr

Sandy Schofield has stepped down as president of the Monaro Committee for Cancer Research (mcCr) after eight years in the role.
Secretary Michelle Corby and treasurer Pat Nichols have also resigned.
The new committee will consist of president Karen McGufficke, vice president Julie Barron, secretary Danielle Venables and treasurer Louise Platts.
Sandy says she will stay on as part of the Management Committee, but felt it was time for someone new to take on the role of president.
“I am sad to be stepping down, and I really have to say that being president has never felt like a burden,” said Sandy.
“Yes it’s had its ups and downs but I never felt like running away.
“I have enjoyed every minute and I can honestly say, it is one of my proudest achievements.”
Sandy says one of the highlights during her time as president is the reputation of mcCr in the local community.
“The respect and love for mcCr in our community is huge,” said Sandy.
“They love us, they love what we bring them in terms of entertainment and financial support.
“People want to be part of our committee and every event we organise, and that makes me super proud.
“I feel the relationships mcCr has formed with the people in our community are a reflection on mcCr as a whole and that is a credit to all of the committee and the way they represent mcCr at all of our functions and in general.”
In terms of the future, Sandy knows the new executive will do an outstanding job.
“I’d love to see mcCr continue to keep entertaining the community, keep helping them and keep educating them about who we are and what we stand for...

More COVID fines

About 11.30pm Wednesday August 26, officers from Monaro Police District were contacted following reports of a large party in the staff quarters of a resort at Jindabyne.
As the officers approached the unit, a partygoer alerted the occupants of the police presence and 20-30 people ran from the area.
Police then located at least 30 people inside the unit, however none were the occupants.
The group were given warnings in relation to the Public Health Orders before being dispersed.
Following inquiries with hotel management to identify the occupants, two men – aged 22 and 25 – were each issued a $1000 PIN yesterday (Monday 31 August 2020).
Police subsequently issued three occupants each with a $1000 PIN.
About 7.45pm on Thursday September 3, police received information a restaurant in Snowy River Avenue, Jindabyne, was not complying with Public Health Orders.

Charles’ trifecta!

Cooma-based wildlife photographer Charles Davis has taken top prize for the third year in a row in the Monochrome category of the Australian Geographic Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards on Friday August 28, with his photo ‘Phil’s World’.
The award marks not only Charles’ third year in a row winning the Monochrome category, but also his seventh overall win in seven years participating in the awards. His success in the Monochrome category is no coincidence, as he finds inspiration in the stark contrasts of the Snowy Monaro landscapes and snowscapes.
“I like working with black and white. Colours can often detract or distract from the substance and story of an image,” Charles said.
“Using monochrome colours, you can really cut straight to the feeling and personality of the image. There’s an undeniable honesty to it.”
His winning photograph ‘Phil’s World’ is certainly not lacking in personality, showing Phil, the titular wombat, emerging from his burrow against a white winter backdrop.

What a wonderful project, great to see so many little ones enjoying the Bike path. Don’t want to be a negative Nancy but a fence might be a good option, so much traffic around that area now. Most parks around town are fenced now, safety is a must with little ones who run off with out warning. A huge pat on the back Bronnie.

Such a fabulous way to utilise the area at Nijong Oval.

That’s great for the little ones. How about a pump track for the bigger kids.

Definitely needs a fence, with the road so close, also the creek behind too..

Cooma Colts enjoy playing back at home

The Cooma Colts Sunday matches were all played at home for the first time since round one, with some comprehensive wins and tight losses playing out for the local teams at the Showground last Sunday.
In their most dominant display of the season, the ever-improving Under 13s took out a comfortable 52-4 win against the Belconnen Sharks. Dempsey Woolf scored the first try of the match, with the young forward running in three more throughout the match.
Centre Charlie Payne and half Tyrell Bartlett bagged doubles, with second-rower Jett Kelly and dummy-half Othon Morgan also scoring a try apiece as the team won convincingly in front of their home crowd. After losing in Round 1, the Under 13s have won their last four matches on the trot and with two rounds to go are looking primed for a finals berth...
