Only give a pet if it’s a wanted gift

If you like the personality and kind nature of a Maltese terrier then Feather is for you. Feather is a 1 yrs old female fluff ball that likes other animals and people. She is quiet in the kennels and would make a great indoor or outdoor pet. Maltese terriers make great family pets and are also great for someone wanting a companion. Feather is located in kennel 57 With Impound PCC 796. She is $325 to adopt which includes desexing, lifetime registration, vaccination and her microchip. Feather is pictured with Joe a male domestic short haired cat located in the Kittery at the shelter. Joe is a sleek fellow and a bundle of laughs, but you will need to visit him to see it. Joe is only 11 weeks old and is due for release now. His impound number is THSC 171. For $230 he comes with life time registration, vaccination, microchip and he is desexed. Visit Joe and Feather or call the Hawkesbury Companion animal shelter today on 45604644 Picture: Kylie Pitt .FEW things may put a smile on a loved one’s face like the gift of a puppy or kitten at Christmas.

But authorities say that gift often leads to abandoned animals being killed in pounds when the responsibilities of owning a pet become evident.

Blacktown deputy mayor and veterinarian Russ Dickens said significant consideration should go into buying a pet for someone.

“A person couldn’t get a better present than a new pet to care for,” he said.

“But no one should give a pet to anyone unless they know their responsibilities and whether they are going to be able to care for that animal, to feed it and train it and pay for its health costs.

“It’s regrettable that people often get a pet and then find they are going away on holidays.

“The costs of kennelling are quite high, and it’s a time of year when there are many other costs.”

Statistics from Blacktown pound, which takes animals from other council areas including, Auburn, Parramatta and Holroyd, show an increase in the number of dogs and cats in December and January.

An average of 22 additional cats above the yearly average of 77 a week are impounded.

A council spokeswoman said this increase was exacerbated by the time of year being cat reproduction season.

There is an average increase of about nine dogs a week entering the pound. The yearly average is 70 dogs a week.

“Owning a pet is a big responsibility and should not be taken light-heartedly,”she said.

The council used a range of strategies to help educate people on responsible pet ownership, she said.

STOP PRESS: Enjoy your festive feast

THOSE food experts with nothing better to do than looking out the window for half the day are now trying to upset our traditional Christmas dinner.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

They’ve worked out what they say are the exact portion sizes you should eat to leave you perfectly satisfied rather than feeling full.

They say no matter how much we like what we’re eating, it stops tasting good if we eat too much of the same thing so a range of different ingredients limit what these experts call sensory specific satiety, or SSS.

For the perfect Christmas plate they recommend you should serve up 150g of white roast turkey meat, 110g of chestnut stuffing, 100g of gravy, 15g of cranberry sauce, one chipolata, 80g of roast potatoes, 155g of steamed sprouts, 160g of steamed carrots and 250g of red cabbage.

After the main course they suggest a 28g slice of Christmas pudding, a mince pie and a fresh mandarin.

They say that should leave you purring with satisfaction rather than groaning from excess.

Well, each to their own…

MERRY TIME OF YEAR

WHILE Christmas is going to church, singing carols and family reunions, to many it’s the time of the year when those who normally don’t drink usually get merry, bombed or just plain drunk.

The usual setting for this piece of annual frivolity is the dreaded institution called the office party, and there’s dozens being held now in Orange.

You know, the gathering where ambitious young employees wonder whether they dare call the boss by his first name as he dispenses lots of cheer.

It all goes on until everyone is three sheets to the wind and next morning what you had to drink comes home, not just to roost but to crow.

Besides the headache, there’s always that nagging little worry in the back of your mind: Just what did I say to the boss?

There’s only two remedies. Time and rest, promising yourself you won’t ever touch another drop as long as you live.

At least not until next Christmas.

CHEESY NEW CRAZE

AS a kid we all knew the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet but didn’t have a clue what the curds and whey were that she was eating when the spider sat down beside her.

But there’s lots of people in Orange now who are renewing their kitchen skills using curds and whey to make popular cheeses like cottage, haloumi, feta, ricotta and mozzarella in a new culinary craze.

Serving up a few slices of your own cheese is a great way to impress your guests over Christmas and apparently it’s not that hard to make.

And it saves you money.

You can buy cheese-making kits in Orange at places like the Essential Ingredient and House and join the growing trend.

FEEDER ROAD A SOLUTION

THE city council has done a quiet back-pedal on the southern distributor road that’s now apparently bitten the dust and set to be replaced by a ‘feeder’ road.

The distributor was originally planned to run from Forbes Rd about 500m west of Ploughman’s Lane, parallel to Wentworth Golf Club, across the railway line, west of Towac Park racecourse and then east to Windsock Corner on Forest Rd.

However, housing development has now blocked that route, which left Ploughman’s Lane as seemingly the only option and no doubt councillors were never game enough to approve that for fear of starting a riot with residents.

But it’s been pretty obvious since 1985 when the then council first rezoned land to the west and more recently the new Wentworth estate that there was no way through there for a distributor road.

We’re now getting a ‘feeder’ somewhere in the south where more housing development approved in Sharpe’s Rd on land originally set aside for agricultural use by Canobolas High School and TAFE could further complicate things.

So it’s just as confusing as it was 25 years ago when it seems councillors did everything they could to block the distributor, even re-selling land in the south a previous council had already acquired.

No doubt it’s been a problem the present council has had to solve and it seems the feeder road is the solution, although where it will go in the west is anyone’s guess.

KIWI QUALIFICATIONS

A NEW Zealand visitor arrives at Sydney Airport and Customs asks him whether he has a criminal record.

‘I didn’t know you needed thet qualification,’ he says.

FLUORIDE CAMPAIGN

WITH the hippies on the Byron Bay council blocking fluoride in the water supply and Cabonne and Oberon shires still holding out despite the State Government offering councils $7.5 million to install fluoridation equipment, the father of fluoride and still a campaigner is a bloke named Dr Syd Dobbin.

A Yass dentist, he was one of the oral health experts who led the fluoride movement in the 1950s when the rate of dental decay in children was alarmingly bad.

So it’s interesting to note Dr Dobbin, 89, is the brother of former Orange mayor Fred, and was a member and mayor of Yass council at the same time Fred was mayor here, a unique feat for two brothers.

Dr Dobbin won the support to make Yass the first town in Australia to have a fluoridated water supply and is still actively campaigning to get places like Byron Bay to sign up.

Some opponents of fluoridation believe putting it in water supplies is part of a communist plot while others say it’s against nature and mass medication.

Orange water supply has had fluoride since February, 1962.

CONFUSING: There’s no way through Wentworth estate for a distributor road.

Bunbury NBN rollout ‘lacks foresight’

BUNBURY Telecom Service director Brian Davies has said there was a lack of foresight in the federal government’s decision not to roll out fibre optic cable to all homes and businesses throughout Bunbury.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Federal member for Forrest Nola Marino said the government was committed to providing fibre cable to new developments without an existing network and Bunbury premises where it “makes commercial sense”, with the remainder only having fibre to the node.

The news comes in the wake of an announcement by communications minister Malcolm Turnbull that the government will break its election promise to deliver all Australians access to 25 megabits per second download speeds by 2016.

Mr Davies said it was difficult to understand the reasoning behind providing new developments and smaller localities with fibre cable while a regional centre such as Bunbury would continue to rely largely on the inferior copper network.

“I see it as a bandaid solution – to go forward we need to be able to have the technology,” Mr Davies said.

“Fair enough, it will cost a lot but I’m not sure they understand how important it will be.

“Using Labor’s original plan but cutting a lot of the red tape involved in setting it up it would have been the way to go about it.”

Mrs Marino said she expected fibre connections to be provided to the central business district and other local areas where there is high demand.

She said the government would base its NBN rollout on the results of a department of communications report detailing localities most in need of upgrades.

There is local concern about the quality of the federal government’s revised NBN rollout.

GOOD GOODS: Jason Carbone, Ray Tonkin, Karyn Clarke and Jenny Elvey. Picture: LIZ FLEMING

Last week Jenny Elvey and Ray Tonkin from the not-for-profit BFFS were happy to collect the bon-bons, chocolates, cereal, plum puddings and other groceries donated by the office’s 90 staff, presented by Karyn Clarke and Jason Carbone from State Trustees Bendigo.

“It’s just wonderful,” said Mrs Elvey. “It allows us to put in extra treats in our Christmas parcels (for needy families).”

BFFS, which offers financial and case management to peoplewith financial challenges, said more people were struggling now, including those with mortgages.

“Twelve months ago it was people struggling with electricity and gas bills.

“Now we are seeing people in the second tier, not able to pay their house payments and in rental arrears.

“Families are going through a difficult time, and we’re trying to do something specifically for them at Christmas.”

Ms Clarke from State Trustees Bendigo said the firm organised a Christmas collection of goods every year for a charity and this year decided to choose a less well known charity.

WUDINNA looked festive as locals took part in the Wudinna Christmas street trading event on Sunday, December 8.

Wudinna shops opened especially for the day and banners looked good displayed along the street.

Food was readily available with local shops opening and the Memorial Hall was open with homemade goods including jams and chutney for sale, as well as garden gnomes, birthday and Christmas cards.

Vicki Coulls had a stall selling handmade shopping bags to raise funds for the Black Dog Institute and Ceduna Sports Power and Postie Fashions were also selling items.

The library had a section and librarian Linda Heath said the day was worthwhile as it gave her an opportunity to explain the new library system.

A special area was set aside for portrait pictures and a massage cubical.

Wudinna CWA provided morning and afternoon tea, and Mary E. Boylan won a knitted doll in the raffle.

A room was decorated as a Father Christmas cave, and Father Christmas arrived on a fire truck to loud sirens.

Children were pleased to be able to have individual photos with him.

Carmen and Angelo Cutajar’s christmas light display where they raise money for Ronald McDonald House.

AT night, Grasmere Avenue in Northmead is transformed into a Christmas spectacle.

One home in particular, owned by the Cutajar family, takes Christmas cheer to a new level with a Christmas a light show, live entertainment, a visit from Santa and a barbecue which will be held on Christmas Eve from 8pm.

All funds raised from the night will benefit Ronald McDonald House, which houses families who need to be near their sick children.

The Cutajar family have been raising money for the children’s charity for more than six years.

Last year they raised $5300.

This year they hope to raise more than $6000.

“Every year it gets bigger and bigger,” Angelo Cutajar said.

“Word of mouth about our night is getting out through family and friends telling each other.

“People come from all over to see our house.”

In September, Mr Cutajar begins decorating his home with Christmas decorations, creating intricate light designs and styles.

In December, when his light display is completed, he switches his masterpiece on for all who pass by or visit the well-known house in Northmead.

The Cutajars started rasing money for charity after a visitor to the home tried to offer them money to help pay their power bill.

“I couldn’t take the money,” Mr Cutajar said.

“I would lose the pleasure of putting up the lights.”

So, the Cutajar’s decided to donate money to a good cause. They started collecting money in a small bucket, but now use a giant beer keg as a money box.

■ Details: 45 Grasmere Avenue, Northmead.
