No work done after Nationals' treasurer got $850k water-saving grant

No work done after Nationals' treasurer got $850k water-saving grant

Sydney Morning Herald by nick mcKenzie and Richard Baker

The Nationals' federal treasurer and candidate for the Victorian seat of Shepparton, Peter Schwarz, is accused of gouging much of the $850,000 he was paid by Australia's largest drought-proofing project.

Mr Schwarz is also accused of then calling in favours when pressed to account for the taxpayer cash.

As Prime Minister Scott Morrison launches his drought summit, leaked government files reveal that Mr Schwarz banked the taxpayer subsidies in November 2011 and then spent years resisting efforts from water officials to get him to either return the money or use it for its intended purpose - saving water.

Political Candidate Roy Butler will be in Wee Waa Friday 16th, November

Author: Kate

I know that we're not better off with the National Party in Government.

Barwon is the largest electorate in New South Wales, and yet we keep being ignored.

Over the coming months, I want to hear about what matters to you in our area because every town and every community is different.

We could use the same level of funding and attention from being a marginal seat that Philip Donato brought to the Orange electorate.

Australia’s favourite and most successful country group, The McClymonts are returning to the road after a year off and they’re ready to kick it up in style. Despite the break, Brooke, Sam & Mollie have been anything but quiet with their best-selling latest album ‘Endless’ debuting #1 Country & #3 ARIA all-genre album chart upon release and generating three smash hit singles - “House”, “Don’t Wish It All Away” and “Like We Used To”, after which the tour is named. On top of that, the girls took home three awards at the 2018 Golden Guitar Awards including the coveted Album of the Year and Group of the Year at the CMC Awards. 

Most importantly there have been major personal milestones including the birth of Sam’s first baby, Wilder, the upcoming birth of Mollie’s second child and Brooke released a duo album with her husband, Adam Eckersley. 
The girls & their band are fired up and ready to go and with over 20 smash hit singles from their 5 much-loved albums, you are sure to be in for an unforgettable night. They’ll be performing hits like Forever Begins Tonight, Here’s To You & I, Wrapped Up Good and Kick It Up, all sung with their stunning harmonies and backed by their incredible band.

“We’re so excited to head off around Australia to play the ‘Like We Used To’ tour together!” Mollie said. “It will be a high energy show packed with all of the favourites. It has been a while since we hit the road and can’t wait to see you all soon!”

Dressage Protocol Days

Author: Kate

Dressage Protocol Days are a great opportunity for riders to learn how to improve the riding of a dressage test in a more relaxed environment, by giving them 'on the spot' access to the dressage judge. Unlike a riding clinic, these protocol days focus on 'how' the test is ridden, rather than whether a rider can walk, trot or canter.

Each rider rides a test, then has the opportunity to talk with the judge who will give feedback on how to improve the riding of the test or individual movements - all with the view to gaining more marks.

It's also a great opportunity to learn about the language used by a dressage judge and gain insight into what they are looking for without the added pressure of competition. It is not essentially different from a rider discussing the test with the judge after a competition except that there is an opportunity to repeat movements.
