Forum explores dying with dignity

MORE than 300 people will attend a forum to hear the case for and against medically assisted dying.
Nanjing Night Net

Panel members will take questions during tomorrow’s question and answer style forum.

Port Macquarie Dying with Dignity convener Annie Quadroy said the forum would be a great opportunity to ask questions.

“It’s a fantastic way to include families in a very non-threatening environment so families can hear about the issue as well,” she said.

Ms Quadroy said people would learn more about the current end of life choice and how the medical system responded to terminally ill and chronically ill people.

“People will go away and be able to talk more confidently with their families about medically assisted dying choice for terminally ill people,” she said.

The forum will be moderated by ABC Radio’s Nightlife presenter Tony Delroy and other panellists

include palliative care specialist Dr Frank Brennan, sponsor of the Medical Services (Dying with Dignity) Bill 2014, Senator Richard Di Natale, and vice-president Dying with Dignity Victoria Dr Rodney Syme.

The Greens candidate for Port Macquarie Drusi Megget, Country Labor candidate for Port Macquarie Kristy Quill and The Nationals candidate for Oxley Melinda Pavey have confirmed their participation as panellists.

Voluntary Euthanasia Party (NSW) state convener and lead candidate Shayne Higson is also a panellist.

“The Dying With Dignity forum will provide a great opportunity for the public to hear firsthand both sides of this important debate and I welcome the chance to respond to any concerns that may be raised in questions from the audience,” Ms Higson said.

Dying with Dignity NSW president and clinical psychologist, author and trainer Dr Sarah Edelman will be MC for the forum at Panthers Port Macquarie from 2pm Saturday.

Tickets cost $13.

Time to grow up: editorial

THE peaceful, amicable functioning of Wingecarribee Council may be over if the behaviour in the chambers at Wednesday night’s meeting is any indication.
Nanjing Night Net

And it would seem that some of those elected to represent our community and guide to positive outcomes for future generations may well have stooped to a whole new low.

In fact some of the behaviour descended to school yard squabbling at times during the meeting. At one point, Councillor Juliet Arkwright referred to Councillor Holly Campbell as Councillor Garry Turland’s girlfriend.

It was a comment that raised the ire of both Councillors Turland and Campbell who demanded an apology.

The apology was not forthcoming but Cr Arkwright withdrew the comment.

But perhaps the most appalling detail of the night regarded a discussion about which councillor would attend which Anzac Day ceremony.

Both Cr Campbell and Councillor John Uliana put their hand up for the Mittagong dawn and morning service.

Cr Campbell argued that she had gone to this for many years, but Cr Uliana said he wanted it.

Mayor Duncan Gair suggested they go together, but it would seem neither liked this suggestion, both withdrawing from attending the services.

The behaviour regarding this matter is appalling to say the least.

This year marks the 100th anniversary since the landing on Gallipoli and Anzac Day in general is a time to remember the many thousands of men and women who went to war to ensure that we could live in peace today.

Many lost their lives, often fighting alongside people they barely knew, many still children themselves, but working together to protect each other and the well being of our country.

It is a disgusting situation that two people who stand up to be the voice of our community can’t put aside their difference to represent our community and honour the fallen.

Quite simply, it is time for those who are voted to represent our community to grow up and behave like adults.

Sadly so many of those men and women who fought for our freedom in war never had the luxury to live an adult life.

They deserve a second chance: letter

ALL great religions, including Islam, laud reformation and forgiveness. (Just or unjust ‘SHN’ March 6) Certainly, the Christian Bible urges us to ‘work out your own salvation..’
Nanjing Night Net

Understanding redemption this way, former drug runners now in Kerobokan Prison, Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan, are clearly reformed men.

Andrew has recently been ordained a pastor through an Australian Church and Myuran has gained a degree in Fine Arts from an Australian University.

They have used their years in the prison to help other inmates and organise courses and counselling.

They have turned the prison into a model of healing by giving opportunities to prisoners.

For those who struggle to forgive the pair, quite rightly pointing out that drug running is a crime, it is worth remembering the Bible also says ‘judge not that ye be not judged’.

The fact so many Australians and their politicians, across all parties, are fighting for the lives of these men, shows that learning their story leads to empathy and forgiveness.

For this, a deal of credit goes to Southern Highlands artist Ben Quilty who, through mentoring Myuran and loyalty to his friends, has shown that they deserve a second chance.

Strong season within reach for Yowies

Yowies James Lee stepped up over the weekend in two close losses. Photo: Steph Konatar.TWO losses and a single win does not look on paper to be the perfect start, but Yowies Mens coach Garry Ball said momentum is building for the side.
Nanjing Night Net

The Yowies were knocked out of the finals in the first round last season, but Ball said the experience will be used to further achieve in 2015.

“We won in Wagga to get into the finals, which is always a tough venue and were unfortunately knocked out by Sutherland at home,” he said.

“It was a very close game and we’re building towards the right thing, so I’m expecting bigger and better things this year.”

The Yowies started the season with a strong 15 point win in Wollongong against the Illawarra Hawks.

“Talor Goodall top scored with 24 points and captain Jeff Dowdell (19) guided the boys on the court with his exceptional leadership qualities and solid work ethic fouling out with 30 seconds left in the game,” Ball said.

Last weekend, Yowies efforts came painfully close to a win, with losses to Canberra Gunners by one point in Queanbeyan on Saturday night and eight points to the Lazers in Lithgow.

Big man Dowdell (9) was once again handy in the Queanbeyan attack, Jonathon Miller top scored with 17 points and James Lee proved his worth after returning from an ankle injury.

“Jeff Dowdell has leadership values, is very level-headed and brings the players together well,” Ball said.

“James Lee has definitely showed his value after coming back from a broken ankle from around this time last year.

“Overall they were both great games, they were quite positive.

“We’re going to have to adjust, but I was very proud of the boys efforts.”

The Yowies lost Aaron Gorman due to work commitments this season, but Canberra Gunners import Jonathon Miller has proved to be a handy addition in the first few rounds.

“At 6.5 he’s a strong rebounder and has great leadership qualities, so the boys look up to him for his abilities on court and his leadership qualities off court,” Ball said.

Coach Ball said the squad is still trying to iron out the creases and bring everything together, but he is confident the Yowies will be finals contenders again this year.

“We’re still in a position where we’re working out combinations and mixes with our plays, but we’re still in an upward motion,” he said.

“Queanbeyan has always been known as a tough mob to play and we want to maintain that.

“We’ll work on the boys being confident with their roles on court and knowing what they can bring to the team when they come off the bench.

“We’ve got 12 excellent players and depth, we just need the belief in ourselves, but we’re a good chance this season- we’re known as a team to beat.”

Rare chance for people affected by adoption

A rare chance forrelinquishing parents, adopted children and adoptive parents to meet has been organised by the Benevolent Society’s Post Adoption Resource Centre.
Nanjing Night Net

The Adoption Connections meeting will be held onApril 16at the Community Resource Centre, 78 St Vincent Street, Ulladulla, from 6pm to 8.30pm.

For the first time, the Post Adoption Resource Centre will visit Ulladulla to host a meeting for people affected by adoption.

Margaret Watson, a counsellor with the service, says the meeting on March 19 is open to people who are adopted, parents who lost their children through adoption, adoptive parents and any other people seeking advice or support.

“About one in 15 people are affected by adoption in Australia and we’re finding more and more people are contacting us to ask for information, support or counselling, and for help with finding and contacting family members,” Ms Watson said.

“It can be a very emotional experience to search for and try to contact a parent you have never met, or your child who was raised by another family.

“We help people to be discreet in the way they make contact, and prepare for the range ofpossible reactions.

“We have run Adoption Connection meetings all over the state and we find one of the main benefits is the opportunity it gives people to meet and talk with others who have gone through similar life experiences.

“We also understand how important discretion is, and that for many people their experience of adoption is something very private.”

Ms Watson said that since the Adoption Information Act was enacted in 1991, the Benevolent Society has supported more than 65,000 people to search for relatives and go through the process of connection.

The meeting is free to attend but bookings are essential by April 13to 1300 659 814 or [email protected]
