The 84-year-old man was waiting at the taxi rank at approximately 7pm when a 42-year-old woman grabbed his wallet, leaving him with minor injuries to his left arm.

According to Canobolas Local Area command duty officer Glenn Griffith several people witnessed the incident and came to the man’s aid.

“The woman was detained by witnesses until police arrived,” Sergeant Griffith said.

Sergeant Griffith thanked the public for their help but reminded people to call police before taking action themselves.

“If people see something like this happen they should call triple-0, and maintain sight of the offender until police arrive,” he said.

“They should also take note of any other details they can, such as the person’s car registration.”

The woman was refused bail by police on Sunday night and released on conditional bail on Monday morning.

Nanjing Night Net

For more than a decade, Babs Mitchell and the Wingello Quilters have made quilted wall hangings called ‘Blankets of Love’ for the mothers of stillborn babies.

Ms Mitchell said she wanted any women who sew and want to be involved to get in touch.

“I want to use up all the excess material I have while contributing to a good cause,” she said.

“The more quilts we make the better, as the mothers of stillborn babies really appreciate the wall hangings to take home with them.”

Recently, Ms Mitchell drove down the coastline of NSW and across to Albury, and stopped in at country hospitals along the way.

“I left three or four of them behind at each hospital and got a fantastic reception,” she said.

The Wingello Quilters supply both Bowral and Goulburn hospitals with the ‘Blankets of Love’.

The group gathers on Wednesday and Thursday mornings for morning tea and chat with fellow quilters while contributing to a good cause.

If you’re interested in being involved, call Babs Mitchell on 4884 4322 or 0439 844 322.

Council chatter: Movie magic made at park

Blacktown International Sportspark as it appears in UnbrokenBLACKTOWN International Sportspark (pictured) has made its big screen debut in the film Unbroken, now showing in cinemas across Australia.
Nanjing Night Net

Directed and produced by Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie, Unbroken is an epic drama that follows the life of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who survived in a raft for 47 days after a plane crash in World War II — only to be caught the Japanese and sent to a prisoner of war camp.

“Blacktown International Sportspark and Blacktown City were honoured to be selected as a location for filming such an inspiring and amazing film as ‘Unbroken,” mayor Stephen Bali said.

“It is a great reflection of the quality and diversity of the facilities available at Blacktown International Sportspark,” Cr Bali said.

The Sportspark was selected as a filming location, with more than 300 extras and 250 crew converging on the athletics centre 12 months ago.

Hollywood magic turned the Rooty Hill venue into the Berlin Olympic Stadium of 1936 and featured the memorable moment Adolf Hitler asked to meet “the boy with the fast finish”.

The transformation involved weeks of construction and the laying of a track replicating that of the period. The big screen illusion is made complete by the use of computer-generated imagery.

Principal honoured for commitment

Honoured: “Public education is the cornerstone of Australian democracy,” Chris Presland said.A LOT of teachers can credit an inspirational educator from their own school days for their career path, but for St Clair High School’s principal Chris Presland the opposite is true.
Nanjing Night Net

“I was sitting in an English class with a teacher that I thought was doing an interminably boring job,” he said of his senior schooling at Sylvania High School.

“I remember thinking: ‘this job is so important and you’re doing a lousy job of it’, I want to do a better job. From that moment I decided I wanted to be a teacher.”

That decision resulted in the 55-year-old being awarded the Public Service Medal in Monday’s Australia Day honours for his “outstanding public service to education” in a 34-year career.

The principal of St Clair High School for the past seven years, one of Mr Presland’s biggest challenges was getting students back to school following a devastating fire that destroyed most of it on June 29 last year.

Just two weeks after the school holiday fire, the students returned to 20 demountable classrooms.

“A major source of anxiety straight away was that the kids would need to be housed at another school,” Mr Presland said.

“But I said straight away that the kids would be back on site, at our school, on day one.”

Mr Presland said he was shocked to receive the Australia Day honour but was happy to accept it on behalf of all public education workers.

“While it’s recognition for me, by the same token it’s recognition that is built on the work of a hell of a lot of people giving their heart and soul to the job,” he said.

While the fire crisis captured national headlines, Mr Presland said it was the everyday rewards that don’t make the news that sustain most teachers in the profession.

“To put it in perspective, we have roughly 1000 human beings at our school — teachers and students.

“As a principal you’re at the centre of that and that’s really humbling.”

Young soccer stars in the making

Werrington FC?s Skills Acquisition Program players: Zac Harang, Elijah Ross, Marco Blazevic, Tamara Lukanovic.

Socceroo captain Mile Jedinak?s boyhood club was Werrington FC

WHO would have known back in 1992 that this kid in the Werrington FC strip would grow up to captain the Socceroos?

Even those around at the time didn’t peg Mile Jedinak for greatness.

But his first football club helped instil a desire to succeed that’s taken the Australian Footballer of the Year to the top of his chosen profession.

Fast forward 23 years and Werrington FC is churning out a new generation of future champions — but maybe not the obvious one.

“We’re talking about finding the new Mile here, but why not develop the new Messi or Ronaldo?” asks coach Joe Badrov.

Badrov was coaching at Sydney United when Jedinak was 14.

“He was always a leader which is rare to find in a player,” Badrov said.

“In terms of his skill he wasn’t necessarily the best player in the team but he was a hard worker.”

The 2015 model Werrington junior has that same work ethic.

“They want to emulate their idols,” Badrov said. “So what I do is teach them to break down the moves that their idols do, and we practice these moves, and through it we’re getting some good results.”

That talent has not gone unnoticed at Football NSW with four eight-year-old players, three boys and one girl, chosen for the Skills Acquisition Program.

“It teaches you how to attack, how to defend and what’s the position: I do like it,” Tamara Lukanovic said.

Werrington Football Club is a rare beast on the Australian football landscape as they own their ground, Luddenham Oval.

Without any help from the local council, club members keep the ground in good shape but they’re hoping for a state government grant for lights so players can train at night. And that just might accelerate the development of the next Jedinak or Messi or Ronaldo.

The 93-year-old Duke of Edinburgh can now add Knight of the Order of Australia to his list of titles. Of course, there’s been plenty of reaction – see the best of it here. And we can’t forget to include this look at some of the Prince’s more memorable gaffes.

She was one voice who made Australians sit up and listen.Rosie Batty, the Victorian mother whose courage shone a light on domestic violence victims, was on Sunday named Australian of the Year.

Ms Batty dedicated her award to her “beautiful” 11-year-old son Luke, who was murdered in February by his father.

EXCLUSIVE: Kiosk volunteers renew criticism

Mount Druitt Hospital kiosk volunteers first raised concerns about bureaucrats taking control of the kiosk’s finances in September. Picture: Gary Warrick.MOUNT Druitt Hospital kiosk volunteers have repeated calls for the returned control of kiosk finances, amid claims suppliers aren’t being paid on time.
Nanjing Night Net

Co-ordinator Margaret Thurlow said their local contractor hasn’t paid been on time after hospital management recently changed suppliers to British-based WHSmith.

Mrs Thurlow claimed the contractor was waiting up to six weeks to be paid because the invoice had to be verified in England.

“We had a meeting with bureaucrats just before Christmas, where we were told it had nothing to do with us,” Mrs Thurlow said.

“I see no sense in their decisions. They can’t be saving money. It’s very difficult for us because we’re the ones who have to face the contractors. We want to know why finances are being paid overseas.”

Fellow volunteer Pat Moir added: “They need to go back to the tried-and-tested system where we looked after the kiosk’s finances.

The Star first reported on the matter in September, when then general manager Andrew Newton said there were “fewer than 10” payment delays at the kiosk in the last year due to unexpected and minor administrative corrections.

Volunteers hope to meet with new hospital manager Sue-Anne Redmond to discuss concerns.

Ms Redmond confirmed the new newspaper supplier as WHSmith and that the decision was made to move to an electronic payment arrangement, which won’t affect the kiosk’s finances. Payments were being handled by a supplier at Mascot.

“Financial decision-making continues to be a part of the volunteers’ role,” Ms Redmond said.

“The dedication of our volunteers is an inspiration for all of us. We work closely with our volunteers to improve and streamline processes where we can.”

Everyone’s a winner in football for 2015 at Nepean District

FOOTBALL is a sport for all ages and with Nepean Association’s plans underway to provide social competitions at Nepean Football Association there’ll be even more opportunities for players at all levels to be involved in the game.
Nanjing Night Net

The Association boasts a total of 11,784 registered players and could well exceed that with their proposed modified football competitions next season.

“We are looking at running six-a-side competitions through the winter for over-30s and -40s women and over-50s men,” association Operations Manager Linda Cerone said.

“We’re trying to address the players who leave the game when they find they can’t keep up with younger players on a full-sized field, so in a way it is broadening our audience to keep people active longer.”

“The games will be two 25-minute halves on a half pitch and will be played at static times and locations to allow players to better manage their time and children commitments.”

The association also provides a Football NSW approved development program that follows the Football Federation Australia principles of player development.

The Nepean Dragons also offers children with special needs the chance to play football.

“The Nepean Dragons are going really well with 47 players registered last year,” Cerone said.

“We have become very popular with a lot of adults with special needs as well and it is great to see everyone interacting.”

If playing is not your forte, the association is also inviting referees to join their ranks.

“Last year was the inaugural season of our own Nepean Referees Group, welcoming 156 referees in our first year,” Cerone said.

“We also have 22 of our referees as part of the talented pathway program.

“So basically we are covering all local football at all ages, offer representative football through Nepean FC, special needs football and for those who want to be involved in the game but not as a player, we can offer them pathways to becoming a referee,” Cerone said.

Deana dishes out showtunes

SHE grew up around some of music’s most influential names and she’s bringing her experiences to the Hills.
Nanjing Night Net

Deana Martin, daughter of legendary American singer and actor Dean Martin, is touring Australia to sing songs from the Great American Songbook and share memories of her famous father.

“It’s thrilling for me to bring my show to Australia,” Martin said.

“I’ll sing a lot of songs that my dad made famous and songs by Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald — so many timeless classics.”

Martin said she learnt a lot from her father’s famous friends, listing nights at home singing Christmas carols with Rosemary Clooney and getting singing tips from Sinatra.

“Frank taught me about phrasing and breathing in my singing, and he told me that as you grow, a song grows with you, and you won’t sing it the same again — that’s why he was always re-recording his own songs,” she said.

“When I’m on stage I’ll have a moment where I think: ‘Gee, that’s Dad’ or ‘Frank taught me that’ — you’ll think I’m weird, but in those moments I feel their presence.”

Martin has recorded four albums and written a book — Memories are Made of This: Dean Martin Through His Daughter’s Eyes — and will sample all in her show, wearing a “beautiful gown — with sparkles”.

“It’s mainly about the music and the songs, but there will be stories and wonderful memories,” she said.

In each of her shows, Martin selects three volunteers to sing backup with her on stage and also leads the whole room in a rendition of her father’s most famous tune: That’s Amore.

“I’ve been blessed with my father’s name — I’m Deana Martin — and these shows do make me feel closer to him.”
