    Three years into her amateur racing career, progress is coming along nicely for the 23-year-old.

    On Saturday, she won the MacAlister Hyundai Series X3 NSW race at Wakefield Park, recording the competitions faster-ever lap time in the process.

    “Itwas an amazing feeling,” she told the News.

    Ms Duggan won the hour-long race ahead of Adam Bryant by a margin of 0.4 seconds. She said the resultwould not have been possible without more than two months of physical and mental preparation.

    “[An hour] is a lot longer in the car than we normally do and your body has to be able to withstand the pressures of racing. You also need to stay focused mentally so you don’t make any costly mistakes.

    “I was a little nervous going into the race because I chose to do it without a co-driver but it turned out really well.”

    Having been raisedin Brisbane, Ms Duggan said amoveto Sydney three years ago providedher with the opportunity to fulfill her ambitions.

    “My familynever gave methe opportunity to do go-karting or anything when I was younger.

    “I’ve loved cars from day dot andrealised if I wanted to chase my dream I had to make it happen myself.”

    Swollen river dumps rocks

    A terrifying display of strength has left a permanent mark on a dairy farm at Latrobe after the Mersey River dumped thousands of river rocks over the rural property.

    Dairy farmers Michael and Judy Perkins have been left wondering how they will move therocks that were dumped on two of their paddocks after the river cut a new path during the June floods.

    A photo the couple took of Mrs Perkins standing in the middle of one of the paddocks completely covered in rocks has been shared widely on social media.

    Mr Perkins said the force of the water was terrifying.

    “It hit us so hard here at Latrobe, it was like a tsunami when it came through,” he said.Other properties further up the river have also borne the brunt of nature’s force, with the river forcing its way over the original banks.

    “Wherever the curves were in the river it has changed direction and went straight ahead, it’s cut a new track through a lot of people’s properties,” Mr Perkins said.

    In addition to the river rocks, the Perkins farm lost 50 head of cattle, the best of their genetic breeding program, water troughs and damage to water infrastructure and soil.

    “It’s taken beautiful soil and turned it into a rock quarry.We have no idea how to get rid of all the rocks, my son estimated there was about 5000 tonnes in one paddock and the other paddock is twice as big,” he said.

    WASHED AWAY: Farmer Michael Perkins surveys the washed away riverbanks that run through his property.

    The damage is expected to cost about $500,000.

    QUARRY: The rocks have added to the financial hardship the dairy operation has had to endure after damaging the pasture.

    The river runs through the middle of the Shale Road property and completely inundated the farm.

    “We didn’t think it was going to be too bad[the damage] until the water went down and we found all the rocks,” Mr Perkins said.

    One paddock was used for pasture and the other was leased to a farmer to grow seed potatoes.Luckily the seed potatoes had been harvested a fortnight before the floods.Mr Perkins said he his insurance didn’t cover the damage sustained as he didn’t have flood damage.

    The river banks will need to be restored and the rocks put back where they came from, but Mr Perkins estimates at least a year to repair.

    Mr Perkinssaid he hoped answers would be forthcoming about why Latrobe was hit so hard by the floods and that people had started to wonder why.

    The Tasmanian Flood Recovery Taskforce sent volunteers from Cradle Coast NRM on Monday to the property to assess the best way to remove the shale stones.

    MAKING GROUND: Dubbo City Regional Airport has broken through the 200,000 annual passenger mark with some help from the wider western region. Photo: FILE PHOTO
    Nanjing Night Net

    WHILE Orange City Councillors and the city’s sole commercial flight operator trade barbs about the services out of Orange Airport, Dubbo is fast establishing itself as the region’s airborne transport hub.

    Dubbo City Regional Airportis becoming thedeparture point of choice for a growing number of Central West travellers heading to the coast or interstate, its council says.

    The past 12 months has seen the number of destinations that can be accessed from Dubbo expand to dwarfthe single Sydney route offered to Orange passengers.

    Airline Jetgo began direct Dubbo-Brisbane return flights in July last year and added a Dubbo-Melbourne route in October.

    On Monday the first flight of FlyPelican’s Dubbo-Newcastle service landed.

    Rex –the only airline to operate out of Orange Airport –also offers flights out of Dubboto both Cobar and Broken Hill.

    Both QantasLink and Rex fly return legs betweenSydney and Dubbo each day, taking the total number of airports accesible from Dubbo to six.

    Airport operations manager Lindsay Mason said there were people choosing to board at Dubbo because they could fly directly to other statesrather than from their local airports.

    One man from West Wyalong had driven to Dubbo to catch a direct flight to Brisbane.

    “He said he preferred to come to Dubbo, as he had to drive to Wagga to wait and catch a flight to Sydney, and then wait in Sydney for the flight to Brisbane,” he said.

    “He told me he just preferred to drive to Dubbo and fly direct.”

    Two businessmen from Bathurst were also changing their travel habits.

    “(They would) normally drive to Sydney once a fortnight to catch a flight to Brisbane, but now prefer to drive to Dubbo,” he said.

    “They think it’s a no-brainer.”

    Dubbo City Regional Airport set a record for passenger numbers in the past 12 months.

    In the past month Orange City Councillor Reg Kidd has slammed Rex with claims the carrier left passengers to maketheir own way to Orange when icy conditions forced a flight to land in Bathurst on June 27.

    The airline responded by labelling the councillor’s comments “careless” and attributing flight cancellations and other issues to “extremely problematic” facilities at Orange Airport.

    Wanting to pursue ballet further, Ms van Raad applied to four schools in America and was accepted atall of them.

    After visiting them all in May with her mother, the talented dancer settled on The Washington Ballet in Washington DC.

    She will start there in September and hopes it will put her closer to her dream of being a professional ballerina.

    “The school is attached to a company, so I will be training for two years and then hopefully I will be in the company, which is paid work,” Ms vanRaad said.

    She hasestablished a GoFundMe page to help her family raise money for the cost oftuition, airfares, accommodation and living expenses.

    Memories and history: Fiona Lynch was commemorating the service of her family at the Battle of Somme in Warrnambool on Tuesday. Picture: Anthony BradyFresh from their Macarthur dairy farm, brothers George and Fred Poynton could not have imagined the horrors that awaited them on the Western Front.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Younger brother George joined up first, in July 1915, followed by36-year-old Fred just over a year later.

    Both served in Europe.Fred was maimed inThe Battle ofBroodseinde, Belgium, but skills learnt on the farm likely saved George from close-contact fighting.

    “He was a sniper… He was a very good shot, being from a farm he would often be shooting rabbits or foxes,” grandson Bill Poynton said.“They did their training in England and it was run by a big game hunter fromAfrica.”

    George and Fred both returned home and George went on to live to anold age.

    Some 100 years later, Mr Poynton still has his grandfather’s dog tags –the pressed cardboard tag that was designed to be buried with a soldier if they were killed, and the more permanent version that would be sent back home.

    Warrnambool’s Fiona Lynch was at Tuesday’scommemorative service to remember her grandfather, who served throughout the Somme campaign and also made it back home.

    Arthur Rusuggan served1378 days –almost four years –overseas, surviving the horrors of Fromelles and Poziers.

    Born in Dunkeld, granddaughter Fiona Lynch said Arthur signed up in Avoca before fighting across France and Belgium with the 29th battalion, finally returning home in 1918.

    Ms Lynch’sparents later moved to Warrnambool to run theK.M. Lynch Liquor Store on Fairy Street and shehas since traced her grandfather’s journey through Europe.

    “He was lucky to make it home,” she said.

    Keeping history alive: Max Hammond and Helen Raw commemorated the service and sacrifice of their uncle, Private Wallace Hill Hammond. Picture: Anthony Brady
    Nanjing Night Net

    As Helen Raw and Max Hammond gathered at Warrnambool’s war memorial on Tuesday, it marked the day their uncle, Wallace Hill Hammond, died on the French battlefield100 years before.

    Private Hammond was killed in the battle ofFromelles, July 19, 1916, in what was some of the fiercest fighting of the war so far.

    Part of the 60thBattalion, Private Hammond, 18, was killed by a German shell.

    While a sergeant was reported to have seen his body in no man’s land, it was never recovered, and what followed was an agonising wait for his family back home in Warrnambool.

    “He was reported missing but it was 12 months before his death was confirmed, so they lived in hope that he was alive,” Mrs Raw said.

    Despite many mass graves being uncovered over the years,Private Hammond’s body was never found and hisname is now listed on VC Corner at Fromelles.

    He became the first of several generations of the family to serve acrossboth world wars.Mrs Raw’s four brothers, including Max,and husband Peter fought in World War II.

    Private Wallace’s three medals— the 1914/15 Star, BritishWar Medal and VictoryMedal — were worn on Anzac Day for the first time last yearby Mrs Raw’s nieceMichelle Butters.

    “I love the Anzac history and my family was so heavily connected … It’s important that the younger generation understandhow important our military history is,” Ms Butters said at the time.

    The battle of Fromelles was the first major action involving Australian soldiers in France.

    At that time it rated as the battle responsible forthe greatest loss of Australian life in 24 hours and claimed thousands of lives over two days.

    Filled with the spirit of adventure, Private Hammond enlisted in Warrnambool on July 1915and embarked from Melbourne aboard HMAT Wiltshire inNovember of the same year.

    But Private Hammond did not leave Australian shoresbefore receiving the blessing of his parents, Thomas and Lydia, and his employer.

    “Wallaceworked at The Standard as a compositor,” Mrs Raw said.

    On Private Wallace’sofficial release form, then Standard director Thomas Burden wrote: “Thiscompany has no objection tothe indentures being brokenfor the purpose of the saidWallace Hammond enlistingto fight for the Empire, andwishes him every successand a safe return.”

    While it seems that fate hadother ideasfor Private Wallace,his memory,at least, lives on.

    Hairdressing qualifications to get cutTerrible. I’ll never let an unqualified “hairdresser” touch my hair.
    Nanjing Night Net

    – Brittaney Mitchell

    Just more ways for Baird to justify closing TAFE training……wrong wrong wrong!!

    – Renna Ross

    There’s a petition against this if you agree it’s ludicrous and want to sign.

    //梧桐夜网hairstylists.org419论坛/petition

    – ?Megan Ellbourn

    Totally disagree; my sister and her friends did five years in their apprenticeships. Just the chemicals and hygiene are an issue which needs to be properly addressed. They did it tough to qualify too.

    – Pam Beedev

    My question would be would currently certified and trained hairdressers get reimbursed the costs of their studies which now will mean jack all .. Also would you want your house built by untrained, inexperienced builders or licensed and educated, experienced builders? It seems Australia is setting itself up for industrial collapse there is no industry that’s safe first our car manufacturing now this.

    – Timothy Raymond

    No, no, no. Qualifications are needed.

    ?- Donna McGee

    Are you kidding me?

    -?Judith Davis

    Well I’llstick to my hairdresser…

    – ?Debbie Sue Owen

    Yes. I did see something! That’s so wrong there’s going to b some hair in the sink and some dodgy styles out there.

    -?Meagan Kelly

    Who comes up with these stupid ideas, crazy !!!!!!!!!!!!

    ?- Coleen Taggart

    Another govt excuse to cut TAFE funding?

    – ?Fiona McLennan

    It’s hard enough now trying to find a decent hairdresser that can actually cut hair let alone throwing this .. into the mix?

    -Emma Mulligan

    I’ve had shocking hair do’s in the past. Actually asked one lassie to see her diploma. Hava good look at the hairdresser’s hair, if they look after their own, you’ve got a good chance. Having a diploma doesn’t make a person competent. Pride in your work does.
