Inquiry into Inland Rail supported by CWA of NSW State Conference in Albury

The map that does not make sense (unless you are the owner of the red box ie Santos).

No business case has been released for this greenfield rerouting of the Inland Rail right through the Pilliga forest (no farms in there!) and the CWA have now joined NSW Farmers and Labor in the call for an inquiry.

"The conference voted to request the federal government hold an independent inquiry into the green field routes and funding for the inland rail project."

Greens Candidate stands down to become an Independent in Parkes

Hi friends, I suppose most have heard that I have stood aside for the election following public disclosure of a post I made on a Port Arthur conspiracy site on FB, 8 months ago. The Greens found it difficult to refute in this stage of the election which I understand. I really do apologise to all of you who have helped me get this far.

It appears I was targeted by a journo from The Australian using a firm who does handle searches on social media etc, not sure who they are. I really don't think the tragedies of the past need rehashing like this in public view and it must grieve families and survivors of the tragedy to see it being discussed like some political football. I also apologise to those people who are affected in this way, very much.

Central North Rugby: Sam Kahl joins brother Daniel and father James as Blue Boars centurion

The Northern Daily Leader

Playing 100 games for a club is a special milestone and for Narrabri's James, Daniel and Sam Kahl it is an honour they now all share.

Against Inverell on Saturday, Sam became the latest Blue Boar to inscribe their name on the 100-game honour board.

In doing so he joined his father (and current club president) James (154) and brother Daniel (107*) in the annals of the club's history.

They are the third father and son centurions for the club following Jack (231) and Luke Findley (155*), and Peter (147) and Matt McDonnell (136*).

Daniel reached 100 games last year against Pirates.

Pirates No.6 Jimmy Schwager prepares for Central North round 7 clash against Narrabri Blue Boars

FOR Pirates number 6 Jimmy Schwager, the 2019 Central North season has been an education on and off the field.

The Year 12 Calrossy student has been a regular starter in his debut first-grade season, but has also received tutoring off the field from teachers-turned-teammates Conrad Starr and Bart Leach.

"To have those guys around, both at the club and at school, has been massive for me," Schwager told the Leader.

"I am really wanting to get the textbook stuff a number 6 does down pat and those guys have been awesome in helping me do that."

Bellata train accident: man dead following train-ute collision

UPDATE: A MAN has died after a Sydney-bound passenger train collided with a ute between Moree and Narrabri.

The Moree to Sydney Xplorer service was stopped less than a hour into its trip when it hit a ute at a rail crossing near Millie Road in Bellata.

At About 8.40am emergency services were called to the scene 50 kilometres north of Narrabri after the southbound XPT struck a Holden Rodeo at the crossing in Bellata.

The 64-year-old male driver of the ute died at the scene.

 

There were no reports of injuries on board the train, which was carrying 18 passengers and three crew.

The train was evacuated as police forensically examined the vehicles.

The passengers were put on buses from Bellata.

Passengers from Werris Creek onward were placed on buses for the rest of the journey to Sydney.

Investment ‘to walk out door’ over gas delays

The Australian

Businesses have threatened to pull $2 billion of planned investmen­t from NSW as frustrations mount that delays approving Santos’s Narrabri project will cripple the viability of their operations.

Gas giant Santos issued a plea yesterday for the NSW government to outline its approval timeline for its $3bn coal-seam gas project in the Gunnedah Basin just days after the Queensland government agreed on a deadline to make a call on Adani’s long-delaye­d ­Carmichael coalmine.

Santos’s demand has been reinforced­ by industrial gas custom­ers, who have agreed to preliminary deals to buy gas from Narrabri, which could meet half the gas needs of the state.
