According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics construction work completed figures released today, the value of construction work stood at $584 million in trend terms for the December quarter – up 3.1 per cent from the September quarter.

“While it is important to recognise that the construction industry suffered a drop after the withdrawal of Commonwealth economic stimulus, our local construction activity is now growing faster than the national average,” Finance Minister Scott Bacon said.

“We remain optimistic that we will see these figures continue to improve with a very solid pipeline of construction activity yet to come online.

“The Government is supporting jobs and opportunities by clearing the way for major project like Parliament Square, which will create 400 new jobs. “

Hartley church service re-enactment

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

THERE were some startled visitors to the sleepy precinct of historic Hartley recently as they watched history being re-enacted.
Nanjing Night Net

Numerous cars and the Bowenfels Presbyterian Church bus disgorged more than 40 people who packed into the old Hartley Court House.

They were there to celebrate a thanksgiving anniversary of an almost identical church service held there 174 years ago by Presbyterian pioneer settlers.

True to old church procedure, music was only supplied by congregational singing.

Unlike the first sermon at Hartley that was spoken in Scottish Gaelic by Reverend Colin Stewart, Sunday’s addresses were delivered by Pastor Ian Macdonald, Reverend Angus Ewin and Reverend Tony Lang in English.

Lithgow’s mayor Maree Statham read George Evan’s poem “The Women of the West”, a moving tribute to pioneer women from all walks of life.

Without those women, whose steadfast loyalty and courage, the expansion and development of the NSW colony after the Blue Mountains crossing in 1813 would not have been possible.

Continuing to support the Presbyterian Reverend John Flynn’s work, the Royal Flying Doctors service will receive the offering taken at the service.

Following the formalities the congregation enjoyed the hospitality of Valerie and Angus Hawes and Jo Mantle’s homes and garden at Little Hartley for morning tea.

Bowenfels Church extends thanks to the National Parks and Wildlife Manager Steve Ring for his cooperation and assistance in making the day a memorable success.

Moises’s star rises

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

A BREATHTAKING debut by Moises Henriques was the one shining light in an otherwise inglorious start to Australia’s four Test campaign in India this week.
Nanjing Night Net

The St George cricket captain starred for Australia, hitting back-to-back half centuries to keep his side in the contest. He combined with skipper Michael Clarke for a 151-run, sixth wicket partnership in the first innings before falling to Ravichandran Ashwin for 68 in Australia’s loss.

‘‘It’s been a fantastic experience,’’ Henriques said. ‘‘Whether I contributed or not just to be able to play Test cricket is amazing.

‘‘I think after day one or two to be on the same field as Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh and Michael Clarke, you’ve just got to keep pinching yourself but to obviously contributed [was great].’’

As wickets fell around him, Henriques became Australia’s mainstay in the second dig. He hit an unbeaten 81 to save Australia from an innings defeat.

‘‘It’s a very tough wicket to start on,’’ Henriques said. ‘‘I had a couple of balls hit my gloves very early on in the innings. I was lucky that those balls went straight to ground.’’

India cruised to an eight-wicket victory and left Australia searching for answers ahead of the second Test, starting this Saturday.

Henriques, who took one wicket from 17 overs in the first innings, is a certain starter but those around him are not as secure.

With Australia likely to call on back-up spinner Xavier Doherty at the expense of a pace bowler, Henriques is likely to be expected to bowl more. The selectors will debate whether to rest the in-form James Pattinson or drop left-arm paceman Mitchell Starc.

‘‘I think it’s terrific as cricketers that we get to go to different nations and experience different conditions, otherwise, it’ll get a bit monotonous,’’ Henriques said.

‘‘It’s so different to what we get in Australia. Getting out there is so enjoyable even if you get hit on the glove and survive.

‘‘Even though it is different, it is frustrating when you get out, but you have to enjoy it because it’s different. I think it’s terrific that cricket is such a world game and having so different types of conditions.’’

Sutherland’s Shane Watson made an indifferent start to his Test return from injury. He scored 28 in the first innings batting at No.4 before hitting just 17 when he opened the innings instead of David Warner, who was battling a stomach bug.

Watson fell to Ashwin in each innings.

‘‘It was easier when you spent more time out there,’’ Henriques said.

DREAM TEST DEBUT

Top scored in Australia’s second innings with 81 not out.

Also scored 68 in his first innings.

Took 1/48 from 17 overs and claimed a catch.

Cellar-dwellers’ amazing escape

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

Bottom team Gladstone caused an upset when, after making only 133, they routed Laura for 118 in Rocky River cricket on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

Meanwhile, second-placed Georgetown inflicted Crystal Brook’s first loss since November 3.

Gladstone v Laura

Jamie Davidson and Craig Woolford got Gladstone’s innings under way with Scott Brand making the first breakthrough, trapping Davidson LBW for 9.

Lee Ballantyne found himself batting in the unusual position of three and he soon became the first of Cody Turner’s six wickets when he was caught and bowled for 10.

Keiron Glenn only made 2 and then opener C Woolford was caught Ben Wallis bowled C Turner for 49.

With the score at 4/82 it soon became 6/86 with the dismissals of Michael Stevens 8 and Jed Hennessy a duck.

Daryl Boylan and Paul Humphris set about adding some stability to the score with a 39-run partnership for the 7th wicket when they both were dismissed by C Turner in the space of 2 runs.

Humphris was bowled for 22 and Boylan was caught by Brand for 19. The last two wickets only saw another 6 runs added to the score with Gladstone finishing on a shaky 133.

Turner bagged his 6 wickets off 12 overs for 46 runs, Koby Nettle 2/24 and singles to Brand and Sam Zanker.

Laura couldn’t have got off to a worse start with Jaran Turner and Tim Woolford both collecting ducks with Laura at 2/3.

Koby Millington didn’t do much damage in the scorebook, being caught and bowled by Jed Hennessy for 5, Laura now at 3/16.

Opener Michael Gaunt was joined by Zanker and they added 44 runs for the 4th wicket to get Laura back on track to chasing Gladstone’s total.

C Woolford was introduced to the bowling attack and he broke the partnership when he had Zanker caught behind by Humphris for 24 and then Brad Jackson going the same way for 1.

Woolford claimed the next wicket when he had Brand caught by Boylan for 9 with Laura 6/76.

With the addition of only 4 runs Gladstone got rid of Ben Hopgood for 1 and then at the same score of 80 got the prize wicket of Gaunt who was caught at forward square on the boundary by Hennessy off Boylan for 34.

C Turner who was having a day out tried desperately to chase the win, but he ran out of partners, being left stranded on 24 n.o., giving Gladstone their second win for the season with Laura only managing 118.

The main wicket takers were C Woolford 3/14/5, Hennessy 3/35/11.2, Glenn 3/38/12 and 1 to Boylan.

Crystal Brook v Georgetown

The top two teams met for the third time this season with the win tally at one-all. Shane Arbon won the toss and elected to bat.

Josh Gale and Ben Cousins put 33 on the board before Gale lost his leg stump to a Greg Baynes’ delivery for 23.

Five runs later Steve Merkel also lost his leg stump when he played on attempting to pull Kyron Burgess onto the on side for 5.

An innings-building 67-run partnership between Ben and Jack Cousins was broken when Brett Ballantyne had Ben caught behind by Daniel Henderson for 24.

James Wardle was next to go exactly the same way for 2 with the Brook at 4/115, with Jack Cousins just reaching 50.

Cousins only added 6 more to his total when he was caught at forward square by K Burgess off Shaun Noonan, score at 5/126.

Arbon and Matt Gulin added 34 to take the score to 160 when Gulin was LBW to K Burgess for 19.

Nine runs later Ben Kupsch 8 was also dismissed by K Burgess.

Last wicket to fall was Arbon who was caught at covers by S Ballantyne off B Ballantyne for 16.

Luke Kapitola made the most of the last over, belting 11 runs off B Ballantyne finishing 15 n.o.

Crystal Brook finished with a convincing 8/189.

K Burgess led the way with 3/33/11, B Ballantyne 3/53/10, singles to Baynes and Noonan.

In the absence of Brett Murdock, Daniel Henderson opened with Greg Baynes who was first out when he put a drive back into the hands of Gulin, caught and bowled for 13.

B Ballantyne joined Henderson and they added 60 for the 2nd wicket when Henderson was caught behind by Gale off Larry Klingner for 31.

Shane Ballantyne joined his brother and together they took control of the game and, at the 28th-over drinks break, they had taken the score to 132 only requiring 58 off 14 overs (4 an over) with plenty of wickets in hand.

They passed the score in the 40th over, with Brett finishing with 101 n.o. and Shane 42 n.o. Georgetown at the end of 42 overs 2/196.

Lithgow boys hockey hosts teams from Sutherland area

Written by admin on  Categories: 南京夜网

IT has been a long off season for the boys from the Lithgow Junior Boys Hockey Association, but they are excited and ready to go come Sunday when the association hosts four teams from the strong Sutherland area.
Nanjing Night Net

It will be an ideal way to hone their skills in preparation for the coming Western Conference tournaments in the Central West competition starting in the coming weeks.

“The games against Sutherland will provide players and coaches from the various age groups valuable game time to assess their teams,” association president Craig McManus said.

“Lithgow has built up a enviable reputation of producing excellent teams and players and judging by this year’s crop of talented youngsters, the trend looks to continue.”

McManus and former Lithgow representative player and Sutherland coach Peter Tait have been working extensively together to make the day a goer.

“It is hoped to promote the day throughout the hockey fraternity and make it an annual event,” McManus said.

“Unfortunately, the senior women and men’s games were unable to be hosted due to prior commitments.

“But is something we will work on in the future.”

The day gets under way with the under 11s at 10.30am.

This will be followed by the under 13s at 11.40, the under 15s at 12.50pm and to conclude the day Lithgow will take on the Sutherland under 17s at 2pm.

READY TO GO: Back row, district coaches Craig McManus, Matt Writer and Shawn Ferguson and district representative Campbell Fergusson; front, Logan and Brody McManus, Tom Luchetti and Lochi Ferguson. lm02lm022613district
