Mr Constance also announced a $5000 grant for a helipad at theheadquarters of the Narooma unit of Marine Rescue NSW.

Helicopters already land on the headland but Marine Rescue is keen to have a dedicated landing pad built for emergency services.

Constance announces $5000 for Narooma helipad

In regards to patient assistance,Mr Constance saidenhancements to the IPTAAS scheme would include:

• An increase in the petrol subsidy from 19 cents to 22 cents per kilometre – a 15 per cent increase;

• An increase in the commercial accommodation subsidy for eight to 14 night stays ? From $43 to $80 – an 86 per cent boost (single room) per night ? From $60 to $105 – a 75 per cent jump (double room) per night;

• An increase in the commercial accommodation subsidy for 15 night-plus stays ? From $43 to $105 – a 144 per cent boost (single room) per night, ? From $60 to $120 – a 100 per cent jump (double room) per night; • A reduction in the patient co-payment from $40 to $30 – a 25 per cent decrease; • Claims for prosthetic services will be eligible;

• Claims for some specialist allied health services will be eligible. A re-elected NSW Liberals & Nationals Government will also:

• Simplify IPTAAS forms and make online claims easier;

• Reduce the time taken to process claims and reimburse patients;

• Establish a dedicated 1800-number to streamline patient and carer enquiries;

• Make small claims under $100 easier to lodge.

Mr Constance said 5269 IPTAAS claims were lodged in the southern region last year.

“The importance of IPTAAS to our community cannot be underestimated and these enhancements will have countless benefits for patients and their loved ones,” Mr Constance said.

“This is about delivering a better service for country communities and ensuring the scheme is in line with what our community needs and deserves.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals are putting patients first by boosting subsidies and cutting red tape to deliver an enhanced service for patients in their time of need.

“I have received many letters from the community about the IPTAAS service and improvements that can be made. I’m pleased to say we have listened and we are acting.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals have a proven record of improving the IPTAAS service and we will continue to do so for the benefit of patients and their carers.”

Journalistic bait, switch

Chris Pippos, in his column of January 30, is guilty of a bit of journalistic bait and switch when he starts off referring to climate change sceptics and ends by referring to them as deniers.
Nanjing Night Net

Given that the studies he quoted are based on computer modelling, not solely on objective and repeatable measurements, one would do well to be a bit sceptical of their conclusions.

This is not to say the scientists involved are deliberately attempting to mislead the public, merely that all such modelling has, underlying it, assumptions that are not necessarily verifiable in the real world.

I’m not doing a Louis XIV here, after me, the deluge, nor am I suggesting we should not do all we can to take care of our planet and limit our impact on it.

I’m simply asking that we realise there is a limit to what science can tell us about the future and we should not impose on the people legislative and tax burdens that are based on assumption, speculation and financial vested interest.

Howzat! – Kyneton Cricket Club forms winning partnership

Some of the members of Kyneton Cricket Club’s new team are very excited to get busy playing.The region’s newest cricketing talents are “banging down the door” to play their next match.
Nanjing Night Net

They are Kyneton Cricket Club’s new team, and they all attend Windarring disability services.

The excited cricketers are proud to be on the field and among the ranks at Kyneton CC, Windarring supported living manager, Rod Brady said.

“They haven’t stopped talking about it!” he said.

“This has given them the opportunity to feel like they’re part of a community club not a disability group.

“Cricket’s for everybody, we know that most Australians love cricket and whether you’ve got a disability or not, it’s no different.”

Kyneton CC president, Steve Tatterson, said he was looking forward to seeing the Tigers’ newest recruits wearing their team shirts around town with pride, and training with fellow cricketers.

“They’ll be a part of our cricket club, it’s just a bit of acceptance from somewhere different, to be part of another group,” he said.

Tatterson recalled how other Tigers players with disabilities have thrived off the game and brought “a ray of sunshine” to the club.

“I just hope they get as much out of it as we will,” he said of the newest members.

“Hopefully it will boost their confidence too.”

The cricketing pursuit started in mid-January when a similar Bendigo team invited Windarring to contest them.

A Kyneton team was quickly formed to accept the invitation and the game was played.

Both sides had such a good time on the field, the matches are set to continue.

“They absolutely loved it, they’ve been banging down the door asking, ‘when is the next game?’,” Brady said.

Kyneton is preparing to face its friendly rivals for the second time next Tuesday.

You can catch the game in action on Tuesday, February 17, at the second Showgrounds oval at 5.30pm.

People with a disability, of all ages, male or female, are invited to join the game – meet on game day at 5pm.

Brady and Tatterson encourage other sporting and recreational clubs to initiate similar inclusive partnerships. Contact Windarring or your nearest disability service to make a proposal.

Federal member Dr Peter Hendy explains leadership spill

Nanjing Night Net

9 February 2015

STATEMENT BY DR PETER HENDY, MP

The discussion the Coalition has recently concluded was not only about communication but importantly, about policy.

The Prime Minister has rededicated himself and the Government to greater consultation.

Additionally, the Prime Minister has implemented a new and creative framework that will facilitate internal communication. These changes are substantial and will open pipelines between Cabinet, Ministers, Parliamentarians and the electorate.

As I made clear last week, I did not consider that a spill motion should be put to the party room. The leadership team enjoys my strong support.

The Prime Minister told the Party Room that we would soon be looking at a Families Package including improved childcare programs and a small business and jobs package. I look forward to their release.

Domestic violence

What a wonderful decision it was to declare Rose Batty Australian of the Year 2015.
Nanjing Night Net

The statistics she quoted in her acceptance speech are alarming and disappointing and clearly demonstrate that we need to do more because what we are doing is obviously not achieving the results in not protecting enough the women and children victims.

We should put more emphasis on better leadership from the male leaders in the family and the community in educating our families that it is not right to abuse women and children.

We need to get more support from the male members of society in leading by example and pushing for better legislation in dealing with this terrible problem.

We have talked far too long. We need positive solutions from the male side of society if we are to reduce the terrible numbers of victims in our midst every day.

These bullies need to be exposed on every occasion and not shielded as they sometimes are for whatever reason.
