Brothers ‘microseconds’ from death

A police sergeant has described an incident involving two Eaglehawk brothers over the weekend as the “closest brush with death” he has seen in four decades in the force.
Nanjing Night Net

The men were driving a Mazda utility north on theGisborne-Bacchus Marsh Road on Saturday morning when a roadside gum dropped a thick branch directly above them due to the strong winds, Gisborne SergeantLen Van Andel said.

The veteran officer said the sharp eyes of the passenger and deft driving of his brother behind the wheel saved the pair from almost certain death.

“If he’d not braked in time I would have attended a double fatality,”Sergeant Van Andel said.

“The passenger just quickly caught in eye this branch descending –it had snapped off and was still in the air rapidly descending –and he’s screamed to his brother ‘tree’ and the driver’s spotted it too and slammed on the anchors and gone into a skid, a controlled skid.

“The branch, in diameter, was every bit of 40 centimetres –it was large –and it’s totalled the bonnet of the car.

“One only has to slightly use their imagination tounderstand the probable fatal consequences if that branch had hit the passenger cabin.

“The driver’s done a brilliant job –he’s either done defensive driving courses or he’s incredibly ‘arsey.’

“Those guys were microseconds, absolutely microseconds away from death.”

The sergeant said the men were “shaken and rattled” but unhurt by their near-death experience.

“If that fella isnot religious he’d want to take it up now,”Sergeant Van Andel said.

“Because by the grace of God he was saved.

“In my time in this job that was the closest brush with death that I’ve seen, that’s for sure.

“He appreciated it as well.”

Sergeant Van Andel said the incident was a reminder to all motorists of the dangers of drivingin extreme weather events.

TREE DOWN: Sergeant Van Andel said motorists should be fully aware of the potentially fatal consequences of driving in extreme weather events.

Chasing South’s 2-286, Citywere on targetall the way through but just fell away in the last couple of overs to finish 6-275 in reply.

A couple of quick wickets put the brakes on, with Mackenzie Morison (37) run out in the third last over and Dan Lawrence caught in the outfield by Mitch Smith the next over, after skipper Brad Smith had struck 90.

Earlier stand-in skipper Josh Crowe couldn’t have been happier with his sides batting display with Ryan Meppem making an unbeaten 54 to back up McNeill and Massey’s centuries.

“It was absolutely outstanding with the bat,” Crowe said.

McNeill punched for one off the final ball of the innings to bring up his first century in first grade after scoring four off the first ball of the over to get to 99.

He and Massey put on 151 for the second wicket, with Masseygoing six, six, three to reach his first century in any grade.

Possible repair strategy for site

The site has been blocked off for more than one week. Tasmanian Liberal senator Jonathon Duniam says he will be looking to secure Natural Disaster Relief funding to prevent a35-metre-wide sinkhole from opening at theBeaconsfield mine yard.
Nanjing Night Net

It comes after Pitt and Sherry engineers provided the West Tamar Council with a report identifying significant cracking and surface subsidence in the mine yard to the north and east of the shaft.

Council is talking with both federal and state governments about the project, expected to cost $1.2 million.

Senator Duniam said he was working with all three levels of government to rectify the “extremely urgent matter” and would be talking with the minister for emergency management Michael Keenan this week.

He said he wasn’t sure at this stage how much funding the federal government could put forward, and additional discussions with Minister’sJosh FrydenbergandSteven Ciobomay provide other options.

Resources Minister Guy Barnett said the government had been in discussions with the council and federal government, and would be working with both parties to find a solution.

West Tamar Council general managerRolph Vos said he would be asking council in the Tuesday meeting to make a decision to authorise the repairs once the funds are committed.

“There isn’t a deadline, nobody can put a timeframe on what will happen, there is more rainfall cast, and continuing rain has the potential to accelerate the failure and that puts us under more pressure,” he said.

He saidPitt and Sherry engineers would beengaging with a company on the mainland, and believed it would take time to mobilise the professionals to undertake the work.

“If it gets worse or there is significant failure, we’d need to take advice,” he said.

Miners DinerownerPriscilla Tyrrell said she didn’t believe the collapse would impact on business, unless itled to the closure of theBeaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre.

“Without theBeaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre it will be a dead town, I believe it needs to be repaired as soon as possible,” she said.

Beaconsfield resident Michael Jarman, who has previously worked at the heritage centre, said residentswere concerned about the future of the mine yard.

The year’s high rainfall is believed to have caused the cracking by destabilising claywhich extends down to 50 metres.

Not your average family: a scary Australian legacyphotos, video

Not your average family: a scary Australian legacy | photos, video TweetFacebookTerror trainingShowtime Amusements is run by Lewis and Leonie Osborne, a married couple based on the Gold Coast.
Nanjing Night Net

Their business has been providing rides, games and attractions to shows, fetes, carnivals and other special events around Australia since 1976.

The house in which they live is located right behind Movie World, a situation which is either the result of a scary coincidence or something ordained by a supernatural force.

While their house isn’t haunted – save for a lot of rides, sets, props, costumes and paraphernalia kept in storage there for work purposes – their family situation is anything but normal.

With the couple having become grandparents (and clearly quite certain about the future career paths of their grandkids), the younger Osbornes now represent the sixth generation in a blood line that has dedicated its entire being to amusing Australians.

According to Mr Osborne, this takes the family legacy back to the late 1800s, when their ancestors were eking-out livings in travelling entertainment troupes.

“It was totally different to now. A lot of things were novelties, like kewpie dolls on sticks, and tin can games,” he told the Gazette.

Surprisingly, Mr Osborne wasn’t always planning on entering the family business. He was looking at working in a bank or as a surveyor before his father got the better of him.

“He asked me to come away with him and the next thing I knew, I was building a haunted house. I’ve now built about five ghost trains and haunted houses, all to do with the creepy and scary,” he said.

As a child, he spent nearly every weekend at shows, watching fireworks. “I can definitely tell the difference between a bad and a good set of fireworks now,” he said.

“The showgrounds of Australia have been my home all my life, and travelling around and entertaining people. Everything has been around families and fun.”

EERIE: Being buried alive might be your biggest fear, but if it floats your boat then Fearaphobia is the place for you. Picture: Geoff Jones

Blood workScaring people out of their wits has become increasingly popular over in the US, where Mr Osborne has spent a lot of time. During Halloween, ‘scare parks’ pop-up all around the country.

“I’ve been flying to America for the past ten years developing concepts about how to do a true Halloween-scary theme park and scaring the living daylights out of people,” he said.

“I got serious about five years ago when I went to HAuNTcon [sic] in the US –a haunted conference for people who are dedicated to the creepy and scary.

“But this has been my lifelong dream. Our own scream park, and the first dedicated one in Australia. We’ve put a lot of thought into it.

“We’ve always concentrated on scaring people rather than just thrill rides. Scary is what we love to do –we get that extra added thrill out of watching people get frightened.”

Punters are expected to flock from all over to attend Fearaphobia, and the plan is to make it an annual event.

CREEPY: The Scare Taker experience is the final leg of the journey and apparently the most terrifying. Gazette editor Matt Lawrence took his camera with him to film the experience. Picture: Geoff Jones

Fear factorThe Fearaphobia website states: “We have assembled a horrific collection of 7 terrifying scare attractions that will stretch your fears to the limit.”

Mr Osborne stayed ‘mum’ on many of the details (so as not to ruin the suspense), but he did reveal that the entire park will be part of the experience –including having to walk through a graveyard to get to the toilets.

He also revealed there will be a complete maze dedicated to “generously very scary” evil clowns, along with “rampant deranged monks and torture chambers”.

Punters will in turn be hooded and blindfolded and “forced to hang on to the chain of death”, and exposed to intense lighting and claustrophobic situations.

Ten per cent won’t make it through the first room, according to Mr Osborne, but there are ‘chicken exits’ along the way so people can tap-out if it gets too much.

The actors hired to take on the scary roles are extremely professional, switched on and dedicated, with many having honed their art over a number of years.

Their skills go further than just acting, with many doing their own makeup and making their own costumes.

The actor who plays Bozo 2.0 has been perfecting his particular brand of scary clown for his entire life, and was flown in from The States especially for the event.

He refused to break out of character the entire time the Gazette was photographing him, which creeped everyone out.

“I say ‘if you dont scare me, you don’t have a job’. That proves how dedicated they are to working here and enjoying this,” said Mr Osborne.

“This is designed for people that want to get frightened. They want a different form of entertainment that’s completely full-on, and since we ‘care about scare’, we’re going to cater for them.”

Mr Osborne encouraged visitors to dress-up: “We want people to come in costume. We like that,” he said.

As for what scares Mr Osborne these days, not much, he said. Except spiders.

“I hate them. I’ll jump. I had a huntsman run across my window recently and I almost stacked my truck! That’s just something I cannot deal with,” he said.

“Fancy a man that owns haunted houses being scared of spiders!”

The next four weeks or so may be a period of greater risk for asthma suffers, according to the Murrumbidgee Local Health District.

Thosewho wheeze and sneeze during spring that they could be at risk of an asthma event during a thunderstorm.

The high risk time for thunderstorms and elevated pollen counts are predicted to be from nowto November 14.

The public health unit will be monitoring thunderstorm activity and pollen count levels and issuing alerts at these high risk times.

Thunderstorms can trigger asthma attacks even in people who have not previously experienced asthma.

People who have asthma or hay fever and who are allergic to pollens, particularly rye grass pollen, are at greatest risk.

Anyone with diagnosed asthma should carry their asthma medication with them at all times during this high risk period.

If you have asthma, try to stay inside when the storms are around to avoid airborne pollen which may trigger an asthma attack.

Thunderstorms cause pollen grains to explode and release fine particles which can be inhaled more deeply into the lungs making even more people wheeze and sneeze.

Charles Sturt University has set up a SMS alert system when the pollen counts are high and thunderstorms are predicted, to register for this alert go to梧桐夜网csu.edu419论坛/asthmaalerts will also be sent from the public health smartphone app, which can be downloaded for free.

Venner smacks the City attack

With the Cavaliers on the ropes at 3-19 chasing 152, Orange City had every reason to be confident at Country Club on Saturday afternoon.
Nanjing Night Net

SHOT: Dave Boundy hit 50.

And then Richie Venner came to the wicket.

The Cavs gun came out blazing and smoked the City attack away to end up unbeaten on 94 as the side finished with 4-157 to claim the first points of the 2016-2017 season.

Venner was aided early on by Tom Aggett who made 35 before being caught with the score at 4-91.

Chris Martin (14 not out) held up his end as Venner plundered the attack.

He survived acrucial dropped catch but ended up hitting15 fours and a six to serve notice he is already in good form.

The four wickets were shared between the bowlers.

Earlier City got off to a shaky start losing the wicket of opener Jock Cartwright before a run had been scored.

Dave Boundy came to the rescue with a well-struck 50 before going leg before wicketto left-arm off-spinner Brad Wright.

The score reached 5-137 before Wright sliced his way through the tail to finish with 5-35 off 14 overs, including four maidens.

Boundy said on Sunday: “We got off to a pretty good start with our bowlers onwhat was a reasonably placid pitch.

“We had our chances and we didn’t taken them. We dropped Richie when he was about 40. Richie then capitalised. It was a pretty real chance.”

He said he was happy with his half-ton. “I seemed to see the ball alright,” he said.

Boundy praised Shaun Grenfell (41) and Adam Cowden (28) for their efforts against the Cavs bowlers.

“We set them a reasonable score and all bar one catch who knows what the result could have been.

“It was the first game of the year. It’s good to get what you can out of it.”

There is a bye next week for rep cricket, but when the ODCA recommences on October 29 the first round winners, and last year’s finalists, Cavaliers and CYMS clash.
