Pensioner and seniors
Thanks to all the letters and emails to Rob Stokes, Opal, Transport for
NSW and Andrew Constance the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure,
Transport for NSW will continue with the capped fare of $2.50 per day
for Transport on NSW buses, trains and ferries.
You will continue to need your green resident’s card, and you will need
to get a Gold Opal card.
This does not mean that we are getting the Opal system on the ferries.
There is no plan by Transport for NSW to roll out this system onto the
private ferry operators at this stage.
The fine detail has not as yet been worked out, but the in principle
agreement has been made.
IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR HOLDERS OF PRIVATE FERRY PASSES
From 1 January 2016, the Pensioner Excursion Ticket will no longer be
sold, so you will be unable to buy it to travel on this ferry. However,
from 1 January 2016, the Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card will be
accepted on this private ferry service.
In addition to the Private Ferry Pass issued by your ferry
service, you will need to show your Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card to
the ferry attendant when you board. As the Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal
fares are capped at $2.50 per day, you won’t pay any more to travel
than you did with a Pensioner Excursion Ticket. If you haven’t got your
Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card yet, apply now at opal.com.au or call
13 67 25 (13 OPAL). You’ll need your NSW Seniors, Pensioner Concession
or NSW War Widow/ers card handy to complete your application.

Pittwater takes out Sustainability Award
Council was winner of a top award at the Keep NSW Beautiful Blue Star
Sustainability Awards held in Manly.
The gala presentation at the International College of Management,
Sydney saw Council win in the Sustainable Systems category for its
Sustainability Assessment Tool.
Pittwater Council Mayor Jacqueline Townsend said she was thrilled that
Council had received recognition for this important sustainability
“Council developed and implemented this robust and practical assessment
tool to encourage a culture whereby sustainability is embedded in its
everyday operations,” said Mayor Townsend.
“The tool uses quadruple bottom line criteria for all major projects,
from the design of a new skate park to helping shape our active
transport strategy,” she said.
“It enables project teams to be more active in their consideration of
issues that ultimately care for the sustainability of our future.
“I am also particularly pleased that this valuable assessment tool is
now being rolled out to other councils to benefit from its use,” Mayor

Stop the supply – you're a
parent not a mate
A strong message is being
sent to parents and guardians across the northern beaches to ‘Stop the
supply of alcohol to minors’.
The Northern Beaches Community Drug Action Team (CDAT) is launching
their Stop the Supply campaign, which raises awareness about secondary
supply of alcohol to under age young people.
The Northern Beaches CDAT is a unified group of government and
non-government agencies who work together to identify local problems
and issues to improve the community’s health and wellbeing.
Pittwater Council Mayor Jacqui Townsend said the Stop the Supply
campaign informs our community members about the laws and dangers of
supplying alcohol to young people (also known as secondary supply).
Mayor Townsend said the education campaign aims to empower parents,
friends and sporting organisations to say ‘no’ to secondary supply of
“The message from Northern Beaches CDAT is a strong one – supplying
alcohol to minors is against the law.
“Parents, and coaches are not ‘mates’ and the consequences of supplying
alcohol to minors may cost them $1,100 or up to $11,000 and/or 12
months imprisonment,” Mayor Townsend reiterated.
Northern Sydney Local Health District Health Promotion Officer, Melissa
Palermo said research shows that excessive alcohol can cause major
problems for our community; however the risks are exacerbated for our
“In fact, growing evidence indicates that the brain keeps developing up
to the age of 25 and is adversely affected by excessive alcohol
consumption,” added Ms Palermo.
Ms Palermo reminded parents and guardians that the National Alcohol
Guidelines state that children under the age of 15 are at the greatest
risk of harm from drinking, and for those aged between 15 and 17, the
safest option is for them to delay drinking for as long as possible.
Updates of the campaign will be posted on the Stop the Supply Facebook
page. More information can be found on the website: http://www.stopthesupply.org.au/
Have your say on Waterway
Council is inviting the community to have its say on the Pittwater
Pittwater Mayor Jacqui Townsend said to ensure that the waterway
continues to have a vibrant and sustainable future Council has
initiated a Pittwater Waterway Review.
Mayor Townsend said the Pittwater waterway is a natural icon and a
distinguishing feature of our region’s identity.
“It is a focus for leisure, tourism and business and an extremely
important environmental asset.
“However, the waterway is under pressure from a range of competing
demands including growth in boat ownership and vessel size.
“There is also an increase in demand for moorings, marinas and boat
infrastructure such as pump out facilities, dinghy storage, parking and
“We are keen to hear from businesses connected to the waterway such as
marine operators, cafés and restaurants, tourism-related companies,
recreational users of the waterway, offshore residents, as well as the
“It is essential that we provide a sustainable balance between economic
growth and employment connected to the waterway and its environmental
protection including water quality and marine life,” she said.
Residents and businesses are invited to complete the survey which
covers key issues facing the waterway and questions such as the ways
you currently use the waterway.
“Feedback from the community will help inform the development of a
discussion paper about the management of the waterway,” added Mayor
To complete the survey visit www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/yoursay by 30 October.

Maintaining Control Off Leash
By Jess Sandstrom
There are few things quite
as pleasurable as watching your dog zoom around the park with
glee, free to stretch his legs and act out the internal fantasies
of the wild beastie within.
But what may be a joy to some could
be a cause to avoid the area for others. It is a hard concept for some
of us dog lovers to comprehend but - not everyone (be it human, dog,
cat or chook) likes our furry four legged steam rollers - Even if they are just being friendly.
So, how do we find our compromise? And how do be avoid being that
person whose dog went flying sideways, sopping wet into Joe and Janes
One way to keep your dog in check is by building up a reliable recall
or in other words, to train your dog to come when called. An easy way
to do this is to create an intensely positive and rewarding association
within your dog to the command for recall, whatever you choose it to
be. You essentially want your dog to be desperately hoping in his heart
of hearts that his beloved owner might call him over simply for the joy
of it! However, if we want to stand any chance of this association
winning out over the ever changing sights and smells of the surrounding
environment we are going to need to put the time in and invest
ourselves in our dogs learning.
To start off you will need to a distraction free environment which
could be your lounge room or enclosed backyard and some high value
rewards, ideally something that your dog doesn't get to have very
often, BBQ chicken is great. A phrase that you'll often hear dog
trainers say is to Set up for Success and this is a great example. You
want to pick an environment and a reward that makes it virtually
impossible for your dog to get it wrong. Nothing is more fun than
feeling like you're really good at something and much like in humans to
feel like you are doing a great job at something builds confidence and
often a desire to do it again.
Well I've got my tub of roast chicken and the dog in the lounge room.
Now what? Of course Rover is going to be acutely aware of the fact that
his dearest owner is in possession of the most delicious food on the
face of the plant. This is a key factor for the human element of dog
training - Patience.
When your dog gives up begging for the chicken (you may need to put it
out of their line of sight) and becomes disinterested in you call him
to Come. When he starts to move toward you, you basically want to throw
a party and by that I mean get REALLY, ridiculously excited to ensure
that your dog will come all the way to you. When he does, bestow him
with a tasty morsel of chicken and make a big fuss over him like he's
just done the single most remarkable thing any dog has ever done.
You can now allow your dog to become disinterested again (you may like
to use a release cue if your dog has been taught one) and repeat the
exercise being sure to do everything in your power to ensure a correct
response 100% of the time and rewarding your dog for every single
correct response. Short, positive sessions are best which makes it
really easy to fit this exercise into your daily routine. Just one or
two 5 minute sessions a day is all it takes to start teaching this
As your dog succeeds in the first low distraction area you can begin to
move into a slightly more distracting environment, for example you
could take it from the lounge room into the backyard, then to the road
outside your house on a quiet weekday. Then start practising on
on-leash walks around the island when no distractions are present, in
the park on-leash and off-leash when no one else is around and so on.
Try to think of every conceivable environment and the varying levels of
distraction and stimulation that can occur in these environments so you
can slowly and incrementally make it more and more difficult and true
to a real life situation for your dog. Remember to Set up for Success!
Once your dog seems to really know what they are doing and is coming to
you reliably in a particular training environment you can begin to
slowly and gradually fade out the food rewards. This is a very
important step in the progression of your dogs training because of
course we don't want our dogs recall to be dependent on our having a
yummy piece of chicken! It is vital that the food rewards are phased
out slowly so we don't affect the positive association we have worked
hard to build up through our training sessions - Recall = Chicken and
my dog can't / won't do it!
A common error when first training for recall is to try and call your
dog when they are busy doing something (sniffing, scratching etc) and
when they don't respond immediately to call them again and again and
again and again. For starters we must remember that in the early stages
our dog doesn't know what we want him to do yet so we have to cut him
some slack, be patient and set him up to win. Pick your moment to call
him over to you and only call him once. If he's started to sniff
something it's probably not a good time to ask, just wait until he is
at the 'goldilocks' point of distraction for the level that you have
trained to and then call him, if it turns out it wasn't the right
moment you can throw a party and get super excited to get his attention.
If we give a command to our dog over and over again without their
responding we risk either teaching our dog that the recall command
means nothing at, known as learned irrelevance or we teach him that the
command is not simply "Come" but that it is "COME!!" repeated 27 times
when my owner is going red in the face.
It is very important in all aspects of your dogs training to have
realistic expectations of what they are capable of and what you have
trained for. If you've only worked up to training recall in your
backyard and you allow your dog off-leash down at the park on a sunny
weekend you can't really get mad at him for putting his earplugs in and
ignoring you in the middle of playtime with another dog! You just
haven't trained to that level yet. Think of parents trying to call
their children back from the surf when they are all having a great time
out on their boogie boards.... Suddenly the earplugs go in then too
Another common error is to accidentally taint the positive association
of recall after your dog has learnt and proofed the behaviour. Some of
the ways this can happen is by:
- Only calling your dog to come to put him back on the
leash and go home.
- Only calling your dog to you when he's being naughty.
- Getting angry at your dog if they don't listen or
don't come to you quickly enough.
Of course the first two points are half of the reason that we taught
our dog recall in the first place and need to happen at one point or
another, but how do we avoid tainting the recall? Luckily, it's really
easy if you are aware of it.
All you really need to do is maintain that positive vibe by doing
things like randomly calling your dog in when he's not doing much at
all. When he gets to you give him lots of pats and tell him what a good
boy he is, maybe even grab a toy and throw it, then let him go back to
whatever he was doing before. Not only will this help to generally
maintain the skill but it will also help keep that important positive
association. You can even get the kids involved and play a recall game
with the whole family!
The third point should hopefully be self explanatory but just put
yourself in your dogs shoes; you're racing around the park with your
dog pal having an absolute blast and you hear your owners call. You
think for a moment... This game is the best fun you've had all day, but
owner probably has something great over there too! Unfortunately this
moments consideration has been a moment too long and now owner is MAD.
She is shouting and angry and I think I might get in trouble!! Will I
go to her?... Or can I out run her and keep playing this awesome game?
Well I know what I used to do when I was a kid and Mum was angry with
me - Run for the hills!!! When we begin to understand how our dogs
learn and offer a little patience we can be much more effective
leaders, teachers and companions. All things are possible with
positivity and the right guidance.

Hi. I’d like to investigate whether a local currency is feasible for
our offshore community. Local currencies are used in many places around
the world, like the Brixton pound and BerkShares. They’re designed to
encourage a sustainable and vibrant local economy (not to dodge tax!).
