Fishing scene heats up

Many locations have experienced their hottest start to spring on record.
Nanjing Night Net

The early run of mulloway generally produces trophy sized fish like this one held by Gareth Lynch.

The unseasonal burst of hot weather has pushed the clock forward on several migratory fish runs.

The snapper bite is hot to trot in our bays with some sizable reds up to 8kg already landed.

These bites are always welcome and even more so if they startearly and run longer.

With the snapper comes a range of other fish including several species of shark that provide somedelicious flake for the pan.

Add to this plenty of squid and a creel full of whiting and we have a warm water smorgasbord that’s well underway.

While it’s a month early some good sized mulloway have already started to show along the back of the Coorong.

Extremely hard to catch, mulloway are highly sought and the spring run produces some trophy sized catches.

Fresh baits of squid, pilchards and saurie fillets have so far worked best and most fish have been landed early morning or after dark.

Some sizable seven gill sharks have also been landed from the beach as well as the odd gummy shark and occasional salmon.

With the early run of fish we can also expect to see good numbers of bronze whaler sharks begin to arrive in the coming weeks.

Bonny lass Bonnie takes boot, ballet shoe, to stereotypes

The Bay Post/Moruya Examiner’s front page story today about the exuberant Bonnie Brewer is another example of why it is so much fun to live and work in the Eurobodalla.

Bonnie Brewer

As Emily Barton’s story shows, when Bonnie is not leading her rugby union team on the field, Bonnie appears inother incarnations.

Bonnie is a keen and cheerful member of the Bay Theatre Players, in both that group’syouth and general ensembles.

She is a joyful dancer and a student at St Bernard’s Primary School, Batehaven.

She has a ready smile and clearly loves life.

She clearly saw no reason not to follow her brother onto the rugby field and has been having a blast.

She plays halfback for the Batemans Bay Boars’ under 11s –which means she sets the plays –which means –to be frank –she’s smart.

Go Bonnie –and go all the other girls she hopes will join her on the field.

Her days of playing with the boys are limited and her cheerful wish is for others to step up and form an all-girls team.Why not?

The rubbish that collected on the Batemans Bay foreshore over the long weekend (page 3) brought back memories of the rubbish Moruya residents bemoaned after the Easter weekend –fishing tackle, bags of bait etc –left in the North Head break wall.

Our problems are nothing compared to those onSydney and Melbourne waterways, but perhaps twice daily collections should be introduced in such a popular tourist thoroughfare as the Batemans Bay foreshore.

We’re glad tourist operators have reported a good weekend for business (page 5), but tourism is a double-edged sword.

Our picture shows some tried to stack their rubbish neatly.Ensuring there is enough bin room for those who do wish to dispose of their rubbish is wise.

On the bright side, the shire’s beaches have come up very nicely in the regular “State of the Beaches” report (page 5).

No beach will ever be free of bacterial contamination –a pristine beach off a national park will still collect bacteria after heavy rain, from native animals.

However, the shire’s beaches are doing well indeed, which is good news for all of us –those who depend on them for their income and those of us who just love them.

AWH landmark result

SMILES ALL ROUND: Albury-Wodonga Health ceo Sue O’Neill has confirmed the service’s first profit since its launch in 2009 in annual report this week.ALBURY-Wodonga Health has returned its first profit since the merger of the Albury and Wodonga hospitals in 2009.
Nanjing Night Net

The cross-border service has turned around a $1.6 million loss last financial year into a $1.2 million profit for 2014-15 when a $2.2 million loss was forecast 12 months ago.

AWH began on July 1, 2009 with its biggest loss of $2.9 million coming in 2010-11.

The major financial reversal was contained in the AWH annual report tabled in the Victorian Parliament this week and to be presented at its upcoming annual meeting.

AWH’s budget has grown from a $130 million to $240 million since its inception.

Chief executive officer Sue O’Neill said a major focus on access to elective and emergency care had contributed largely to the turnaround in financial fortunes.

“We’ve achieved all our activity targets and we did that with some efficiencies and some improvements in the way we did business,” she said.

“It led to us lowering our costs and coming out with a better outcome.

“Thisresultis a really good news story for us.”

AWH lifted its performance target from 90 per cent 12 months ago to 99.7 per cent.

One of the single biggest improvements in the last 12 months was recorded in the numberof patients with a length of stay in the emergency department of than 24 hours.

The figure peaked at 225 at Albury and 98 at Wodonga in the first quarter of last year.

They dropped to 111 and 55 at Albury and Wodonga respectively in the second quarter before plummeting to a low of two and zero between January and March this year.

In the final quarter of 2014-15 they were three and one and the latest data for the first quarter of 2015-16 shows the trend has been maintained.

“A better better understanding of our demand, matching our capacity, resources and improving productivity has resulted in a series of improvementsin the time patients on average waited for emergency care and received elective surgery,” Ms O’Neill said.

Ms O’Neill joined AWH in August last year from Cabrini Health in Melbourne.

The opening of a fourth operating theatre at Albury hospital during the last financial year has also played a factor in the bottom line improvement.

A total of289 more patients received orthopaedic procedures compared to the previous year.

Other steps forward include the overall reduction in the waiting list for procedures that require overnight stay by 15 per cent.

“We acknowledge that targets are not always met,” Ms O’Neill said.

“Butwe are consistently moving closer.”

Runners revel in daylight savings

Cold southerly winds greeted the 63 Broulee Runners on Wednesdayevening, which tended to slow the pace down.
Nanjing Night Net

RUN WITH MUM: Rhys and Jo Flood and Leanne and Jaylah Hancock ran on Wednesday.

The exception was Daniel Beby, who recorded a very fast time of 17 minutes flat over this temporary longer course.

This was only one second slower than his previous time before the start of the bridge work, which has lengthened the course.

This was the group’s first event at the new daylight saving time of 5 PM and we attracted 10 new starters. It is definitely a family event with three members of the Weymans family having their first run.

The triathlon season is fast approaching and a number of athletes are working hard on their training and most notable are Daniel Beby, Lachlan Brown, Gary Ashton and sisters Kylie and Kim Young.
