a line to say how sorry I was that the weather spoilt Watermarks - I
know how hard Anne and her team worked to make it a success - also the
girls at the Fireshed & Kindy making all that lovely food -
all deserve a big round of applause and acknowledgment from the rest
of the community.
all of you and your partners, Tracy Ponich, Anne Palmer Annette
Ritchie, (Ian Smail and Andy Palmer, the long suffering husbands) and
of course Penny Gleen,
a huge thank you for a wonderful weekend.
and I were in the gallery all weekend, we heard only praise for the
organisation and smooth running under the most difficult of
To Andy Palmer, Tracy Ponich and Ian Smail for
holding the fort in the foulest of situations. You looked like drowned
rats with the biggest smiles and positive attitudes.....
you were here there and everywhere I can only imagine the load you
carried......It is people like you that keep this community alive.
Paul and Tracy
second all of that!
heard nothing but enormous praise about the organisation. One couple
told us that from the moment they arrived at Pittwater High to every
studio and yummy morsel they tasted they were treated like kings and
couldn't have had a better time....a credit to you guys who put in all
the hard work while we swanned about in our dry studios making cups of
tea for all the brave souls who visited us at Artspace Rouge.
A HUGE THANK YOU from us too,
would also agree in congratulating everyone on a tremendous effort, one
couple said today and I quote “ we had to come out in the
as we couldn’t let you all down”
also like to say a big thank you to the Anne Palmer the WaterMarks
committee and Penny. This was the best organised and presented event

non-perishable protein source when off in the jungle on

safety out in force in Pittwater
BOAT owners on
Pittwater this weekend be warned.
Water police, fisheries and maritime safety officers will be out in
force in a highly visible operation targeting all offences, including
marine drink-driving, speeding, unsafe navigation, anti-social
behaviour, vessel safety, fishing licences, and bag and size limits.
Broken Bay water police commander Senior Sergeant Chris Morgan said the
operation would see the three agencies working together to enforce
maritime law and ensure the safety of the boating public.
New laws governing the safety equipment required on boats were
introduced a year ago, and the police have concentrated on educating
the boating public since its introduction.
“We’re now looking to move from education towards enforcement,” Serg
“The weekend operation is about combining our resources and providing
as much coverage as possible, which means several boats and jet skis
will be used at the same time.
“By combining our efforts, we’ll cover more ground and be able to
deter, detect and arrest offenders, and to make boating safer for

Open Letter to
Pink Water Taxis
I was extremely disappointed to receive appalling service from Pink
Water Taxis this weekend. I had family and friends, including friends
from overseas, coming to lunch. Because there were too many people to
fit in our small commuter boat on one journey, I had advised them to
take a water taxi from Church Point.
In the pouring rain on Sunday, I received a call from my mum who was
quite upset and speechless at the rudeness from the water taxi operator
via, ironically enough, the courtesy phone. Because she didn’t know the
“name of our wharf” (we don’t have a “name” for our little wharf, but
it is simple enough to direct a taxi to our home, which my mum, and the
water taxi operators, know well) she was advised that “we don’t do
business that way”, told to “take the ferry” then the taxi operator
hung up on her mid-sentence.
She called back and tried to explain the situation, including the fact
that it takes almost an hour to get to our home by ferry, including a
15 minute walk. She was hung up on twice more, then the operator turned
off his phone for the next half hour, ignoring dozens of calls from my
mum and myself. Our guests saw the taxi operator at Church Point soon
after and asked him directly if he could just drop them across the
water (our place is less than five minutes from Church Point) and he
flatly refused and went to lunch.
Instead, I had to get in our small, open boat with a small child and a
baby and make two trips in the torrential rain to pick up our guests,
apologising all the while for the embarrassingly poor introduction to
Australia that our guest from South Africa had received.
This is certainly not the first bad experience I have had using Pink
Water Taxis – in fact every interaction I have had with them has left
me reeling at their unbelievably poor customer service – but it is
definitely the worst. Between the exorbitant rates and rude attitudes,
you are a prime example of a business with an effective monopoly on a
captive audience and absolutely no regard for your customers.
You clearly have an absence of any sense of customer service within
your business and think it is appropriate to treat your customers with
outright rudeness and contempt. I am absolutely stunned that this
attitude still exists in any modern business.
I was utterly mortified, after regularly raving to friends and family
about how lovely the people are in the offshore community, to have to
explain that the helpfulness, insults and outright rudeness that they
received from Pink Water Taxis are not representative of the wider
residents’ attitudes. This behavior was not only an appalling example
of customer service, but was simply embarrassingly rude. Did your
parents never teach you that insulting, laughing at, then hanging up on
a grandmother after consigning her to a boat trip in the rain is just
plain bad manners?
I strongly suggest that you rethink your attitude to your customers –
we are not there just to hand over money to you at your convenience,
instead you are a business which is expected to offer some level of
“service” to your customers in return for our hard-earned dollars.
I urge all offshore residents to question whether this
attitude is what
we want to be the first introduction that many people have to our

We are happy to be alive after a huge tree crashed onto our
Florence Terrace house in the wild storm in the early hours of Sunday
morning. The tree is resting less than a metre from our bed and if it
wasn't for the solid structure of our Steve Crosby designed/John
Travers built house we wouldn't be typing this message.
Wonderful Scotland island fire brigade turned out in the middle of that
filthy night to make sure we were OK - fantastic man from Energy
Australia arrived to preform a Cirque du Soleil act up a wobbling power
pole in driving rain to render us all safe from electrocution - and
those SES girls and guys are saints. They cleared huge
tree from the roof so that a tarpaulin could stop the rain pouring into
our once beautiful home. Lovely neighbours Karin and Eamon
Emmie arrived with tea and coffee and hugs… and Lyn and Cal with a lead
from their boat shed so we can at least keep the fridge running.
We've only ever seen such activities on the news happening to 'other'
people - now we know first hand just how wonderful our services our
neighbours and friends really are!

A portion of the Winnererremy Bay playground at Mona Vale has reopened,
after its temporary closure due to the presence of salmonella bacteria.
The area which was closed – near the Flying Fox equipment and climbing
net – reopened on the weekend after Council staff removed existing bark
and replaced it.
The Council closed part of the playground two weeks ago, following
testing by NSW Health which revealed traces of the salmonella java
The bacteria has been implicated in cases of gastro-enteritis in young
children in Pittwater since 2008. This year ten cases have been
reported via local GPs to NSW Health.
Despite extensive testing and research by various experts the source of
the bacteria has not been located.
NSW Health advised the Council to close the affected area of the
playground and remove the bark, after four of the children who had
fallen ill in the last three months were known to have played at
Reserves & Recreation Manager Les Munn said the new bark had
spread over the playground to a depth of 30cms following advice from
Mr Munn said parents and carers of young children should follow basic
hygiene principles if they were concerned.
“Ensure children wash their hands before eating and after playing
outside and try to ensure that they don’t put things in their mouths
while playing outdoors.”

SPOTLIGHT ON COMMERCIAL FISHING IN
The Council has joined local member Rob Stokes in calling for a review
of commercial fishing in Pittwater.
At its meeting this week the Council adopted a Mayoral minute by Cr
Harvey Rose, asking the state government to widen its current enquiry
into commercial fishing to examine the impacts on the Pittwater estuary.
The enquiry is being administered by the NSW Minister for Primary
Industries and is expected to deliver its findings later this year.
Cr Rose said it was vital that long-term fish stocks in Pittwater were
He said the Council had had discussions with the group representing
amateur anglers – the Anglers Action Group (Northside) – and agreed
with them that commercial fishing appeared to be unsustainable in
“The Pittwater estuary is a breeding ground for a variety of species of
smaller fish and these are a vital link in ensuring the continuation of
the marine food chain,” he said.
“Commercial fishing disrupts this food chain because of the
indiscriminate nature of drag-netting.”
Cr Rose said that in harbours and waterways where commercial fishing
had ceased,such as Botany Bay, Sydney Harbour and Lake Macquarie, fish
stocks had dramatically improved within a few years.
The Mayor said that there were a large number of businesses in
Pittwater which depended heavily on recreational fishing and boating
for their sustainability.

Growing Up with
Fragile X Syndrome
with Fragile X Syndrome: The Road to Marty Campbell is the
new biography from long time Scotland Island resident, Robyn Iredale.
Robyn is launching her story of raising a son affected by fragile X
(FX) and invites those living in the Pittwater area and who work in
health and disability services, or who have a personal connection to or
interest in fragile X, to attend.
FX syndrome is the leading cause of inherited intellectual disability
and the most common known genetic cause of autism. It is found in all
races and at all socio-economic levels. Latest statistics indicate 1 in
3600 males and 1 in 4000- 6000 females are affected and that as many as
1 in 280 males and 1 in 125 females are carriers. Every week in
Australia one child is born who is fully affected and twelve children
are born who are carriers.
Dr Iredale’s book describes her extended family’s journey along the FX
road from Marty’s pre-diagnosis at age seven back in 1977, when
awareness and support services were essentially non-existent, through
the trials and the triumphs of school, sport and employment, to the
It also includes vital FX research and information on testing, health
issues, education, behavioural challenges, likely outcomes for carriers
versus those affected and describes with humour the many common
personality traits shared by those affected, which will resonate with
families touched by FX.
There have been plenty of academic books and research papers written on
FX but it is believed The Road to Marty Campbell is the first personal
account available worldwide.
Dr Paolo Totaro AM

is important to appreciate that your dog has been born with a dry,
irritable skin. This skin will remain dry and itchy throughout your
dog's life. The degree of irritability may lessen with time. Various
things will aggravate this irritable skin. When this happens, whatever
the age of the dog, dermatitis will occur. Therefore, the tendency to
dermatitis is lifelong, but the fact of dermatitis may not be lifelong.
The important thing to grasp is that this skin will have to be
understood and cared for, for life. If this is done, often the
development of dermatitis remains a rare event."
