Agri Australis, a subsidiary of Italian chocolate maker Ferrero, announced last November the company would develop a large-scale hazelnut project on a 2600-hectare property on Dellapool Road at Sandigo, near Narrandera.

The first lot of 30,000 trees were planted in May this year, with the intention to plant more than one million.

It’s expected to generate 50 full-time and 50 seasonal jobs when it reaches full production in eight years.

When fully operational, the Sandigo farm is expected to generate 5000 tonnes of hazelnuts a year.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to bits with it,” Narrandera mayor Jenny Clarke said.

“There’s been a lot of community support.

“It’s going to provide jobs for planting to start with and progress to (more) full-time jobs.”

Developers Agri Australis initially described the project as a “demonstration site” to encourage local farmers to follow their lead and plant hazelnut trees to boost production to 10,000 tonnes a year.

“There is a certain amount of interest,” Councillor Clarke said.

“The potential for hazelnut cultivation, so should generate 50 full-time and 50 season jobs when it gets into full production.

“It’s a great boost.”

It’s believed the industry has the potential to become a $200 million export business for Australia.

“It’s been a real coup for Narrandera,” Cr Clarke said.

“It’s really wonderful.”

The first crop is expected to be harvested in the next four years.

Finding ‘easy’ way out

SO, VICTORIANS have voted “It’s just too hard” and decided tough economic times aren’t for them.

So they elected a Labor government which will be a free-spending “what do you want? We will give it to you” government and hang balanced budgets and responsible management.

There are clear signs that far too many Tasmanians are feeling the same way.

Having expressed alarm and some disgust at the financial capriciousness of a Labor/Green administration and called in the Liberal Party heavy-hitters to sort out the mess, sections of this electorate are now saying: “Oh, we wanted you to ‘fix it’ but didn’t realise it might affect us”.

Even at the national level the same plaintive cries are being heard: “You said there’d be some tough times ahead but please leave us out of the cuts”.

Whatever happened to “The Lucky Country”? Well for a number of years it got lucky but now it has run out and it’s down to a bit of hard yakka and that’s too much for too many to bear for too long.

So, the response is “chuck ’em out and bring in the tooth fairies”.

That’s what the Victorians have done and it’ll end in even more tears.

Slipstream Circus juggles with space issue

ON THE MOVE: Ulverstone’s Slipstream Circus is looking for a new, larger home for its 210 school-aged members. Picture: Stuart Wilson.AT full capacity, Ulverstone’s Slipstream Circus is looking for a new home.

Slipstream, Tasmania’s largest youth circus, currently has 210 school members.

“Slipstream is growing exponentially, but is finding it difficult to do so within the constraints of the current training space, which takes up half a basketball stadium in the Ulverstone Sport and Recreation Complex,” general manager Arlette Bruggeman said.

“If Slipstream could access either more timeslots or other suitable training spaces, we could offer a wider variety of specialty circus classes and more intense training time for those who take circus as a more serious option.”

Ms Bruggeman said since 2008, seven Slipstream students had been accepted into the National Institute of Circus Australia.

“This is a reflection on the calibre of the training program and considered an awesome feat by most other Australian youth circuses who admire this outcome,” she said.

“We are aware of at least 12 past students who continue to make a career out of circus.

“Other students have improved physical, mental and emotional health issues merely by being participants of circus and feeling part of something exciting and inclusive.”

Due to its capacity the non-profit organisation could see itself outside of Ulverstone.

The squeeze out for CBD parking

AND so the squeeze for CBD workers becomes that little bit tighter. Bathurst Regional Council’s trafficcommittee has recommended a further 116 spaces in the council-owned car park behind Bathurst RSL be converted to timed parking.

The new measures will not come into effect until the traffic committee minutes go before full council for final approval – most likely at the first meeting next year – but committeedecisions are rarely challenged in the chamber.

That’s good news for RSL patrons who have found it difficult to find a park when they have dropped in at the club for a drink or bite to eat, but bad news for 116 CBD workers each day who must now find somewhere else to leave their car while they’re off trying to earn a dollar.

Good luck to the RSL for securing a better deal for its members, but how can council truly justify hanging CBD workers out to dry like this?

Traffic committee chairman councillor Warren Aubin’s suggestion that workers take advantage of their four-hour park in themorning before moving their car at lunchsimply doesn’t add up.

If that is the solution for workers, then RSL patrons will receive no benefit from the new arrangements.

And if workers are delayed at their desk for any reason in the morning, then they risk a $104 fine – meaning they’ve spent all morningworking for nothing.

Sounds like no-one is better off, doesn’t it?

Surely council has an obligation to provide all-day parking options for CBD workers that are both a reasonable walk from the centre of town, and safe for workers returning to their cars after dark.

If council is to increase the number of timed parking spaces in one part of town, shouldn’t it increase the number of all-day parking spots elsewhere?

Council clearly wants to attract businesses to the CBD, but those businesses need somewhere for their staff to park.

Council seems intent on ignoring that need.

They can also buy a bauble for a gold-coin donation, with all the proceeds going towards the plight of the animals.

“It’s Christmas season, but it’s also breeding season so there are lots of animals in need,” Dr Keough said.

Vet nurse at the clinic, Jess Joannides said there were many animals in need.

“We do a lot of work for animal rescue,” she said.

“They needs towels, toys, anything and everything.”

WIRES employee Glenda Pym said community support was desperately needed.

“The Christmas season also a sees a sharp increase in the demands for this support resulting in available resources stretched to the max for these organisations,” Ms Pym said.

“Lake Road Veterinary Clinic in conjunction with Bob’s Birdz N Pets have joined forces to deliver some practical help to these caring volunteers with the establishment of The Giving Tree.

“The hot weather and increased road traffic also cause hardship for wildlife.

“Please give what you can this giving season to our furry, feather and scaly friends.”
