A woman has been granted conditional bail after she allegedly crashed into parked cars while driving at more than six times the legal alcohol limit on Wednesday, leaving a six-year-old girl with serious injuries.

Emergency services were called to Eastwood in Sydney’s north at 12.40pm after the 50-year-old woman allegedly reversed into two cars.

A six-year-old girl who was walking between the cars was trapped between them by the impact, police said.

She sustained serious injuries to her pelvis and was taken to Westmead Children’s Hospital, where she remained in a serious condition on Wednesday night.

Police arrested the 50-year-old woman near to the accident scene and took her to Ryde Police Station.

A breath analysis allegedly found a blood alcohol reading of .303, more than six times the legal limit of 0.05.

She was charged on Wednesday night with high-range drink driving, using her mobile phone while driving and causing bodily harm by misconduct.

The woman was granted conditional bail and will face Burwood Local Court on October 24.

Progress Avenue, where the crash took place, was cordoned off as police examined the scene.

Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are investigating the events leading up to the crash, police said.

Architects in beauty parade for $1b Lendlease Circular Quay revamp

Architects are now making submissions for a Lendlease proposal for Circular Quay.The proposed $1.5 billion redevelopment of Lendlease’s​ Circular Quay office project has moved to the beauty parade stage with a range of Australian and international architects now putting in submissions.

The design jury comprises three nominees each from Lendlease and the City of Sydney.

It comes as the whole of the area enters the next stage of the City of Sydney’s revamp of the city’s major water front which will include the ferry terminals.

The more than $2 billion redevelopment of the area is seen as one of the last pieces of the puzzle in the upgrade of Sydney, which extends from Haymarket at the southern end of the city, through Darling Harbour with the new International Convention Centre and Barangaroo. There is also the new light rail along George Street and the Sydney Metro.

The last area will be the Bays precinct at White Bay, Balmain, which internet giant, Google, is looking to call home once the area is repatriated, and also the proposed new Sydney fish markets.

AMP is undertaking a $1 billion redevelopment of 50 Bridge Street at the eastern end of Circular Quay, while the Chinese giant Wanda is looking to build a hotel and residential tower on the site of the Gold Fields House.

Lendlease’s site is near the planned Wanda project.

Lendlease revised its first $1 billion proposal in July to contend with the $1 billion Wanda One development next door by gaining approval for a 248 metre tower, almost 30 metres higher than the old plan.

It was suggested earlier this year that China’s Ping An Insurance and Japan’s property house Mitsubishi will help finance the Lendlease project.

Mark Menhinnitt, Lendlease’s managing director for urban regeneration, said on Wednesday that Lendlease has initiated a competitive design process for the site at Circular Quay.

“The competition is being run according to the City of Sydney’s Competitive Design Policy, and seven international and local architect teams have been invited to participate,” he said in a statement.

” A decision is expected around mid- to late-December.”

Lendlease said the competitive design process for the site comprises two competitions: one competition for the entire precinct excluding the Jacksons on George site and one competition for Jacksons on George only.

The architects vying for the Lendlease project include BVN, Hassell, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Foster and Partners, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, HOK, and David Chipperfield Architects.

Western Bulldogs best and fairest award won by Marcus Bontempelli

Bontempelli celebrates with the premiership cup. Photo: AFL Media/Getty ImagesAged just 20, Marcus Bontempelli has won his club’s best and fairest in a premiership year.
Nanjing Night Net

The Western Bulldogs youngster concluded a dream season by claiming the Charles Sutton Medal, easily winning Wednesday night’s count at Crown Casino. He is the youngest winner of the award since David Thorpe in 1968.

The honour is yet another feather in Bontempelli’s increasingly impressive cap.

It came after the former No.4 draft pick was last month named All-Australian for the first time.

He was also named in the AFL Players’ Association’s “22 under 22” team for the third straight year, and even briefly stepped in as the club’s captain mid-season after injuries to Bob Murphy and Easton Wood. In just his third season at the elite level, Bontempelli played all 26 games, averaging more than 24 disposals and exactly one goal.

He led the club in tackles, contested possessions, inside 50s and clearances, and was the Dogs’ equal leader in goal assists. The midfielder was a solid performer in his side’s unlikely finals run, most notably in the upset semi-final win over Hawthorn, in which he was arguably best afield.

Bontempelli finished with 319 votes,  clear of veteran backman Dale Morris (248) and emerging midfielder Lachie Hunter (246).

Morris, 33, was rewarded for a fine season in defence. He is one of several veterans at the club to have thrived since the arrival of coach Luke Beveridge two years ago.

Hunter, 21, had been a fringe player during his first three seasons at the Whitten Oval, but enjoyed a breakout year in 2016, averaging nearly 28 disposals as he built a reputation as one of the competition’s most consistent midfielders.

Having missed all of last season due to a serious knee injury, 2014 best and fairest Tom Liberatore bounced back to finish fourth in this year’s count with 218 votes.

Former captain Matthew Boyd came ninth after his All-Australian effort, while rebounding defender Jason Johannisen – who won the Norm Smith Medal in last Saturday’s grand final win over Sydney – finished 10th on Wednesday night, despite missing nine games during the year with a hamstring injury.

Liam Picken was rewarded for an outstanding finals series in which he averaged more than 23 disposals and kicked eight goals – named the club’s best finals player in addition to finishing fifth overall.

Josh Dunkley – overlooked by the Swans as a father-son selection in last year’s draft – won the Chris Grant best first-year player award after playing 17 games this season, including the grand final victory over the club of his father Andrew.

Grain upside vanishes under water

Riverine flooding is causing significant damage to the crop in NSW.ONCE tipped to push record levels, analysts are now predicting the Australian national crop will be down on earlier estimates due primarily to damage caused by waterlogging throughout eastern and southern Australia.
Nanjing Night Net

A severe and widespread frost in Western Australia is also tipped to have a major impact on overall yield in many regions there.

The focal point for waterlogging damage is central NSW.

Early indications from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) estimate total crop loss in excess of $680 million for the state.

Central West Local Land Services General Manager Andrew Mulligan said farmers in the Lachlan and Macquarie Valleys had been particularly hard hit.

“There has been significant damage to crops and pastures in areas affected by recent flooding with the worst affected areas including Forbes, Corinella, Condobolin and Nyngan.”

John Minogue, Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) northern panel chair, said pulse crops were suffering the worst.

“Chickpeas are definitely the biggest problem, they are under severe stress.”

However, while Mr Minogue, who is based near West Wyalong in central NSW, said there would be individual stories of heartbreak he hoped the region as a whole would produce a reasonable volume of grain.

“For many people it is a case of having lost some ground to waterlogging, but having better crops than usual in the parts that didn’t get excessively wet, so I still hope we see an average year overall in this region.”

Mr Minogue said the waterlogging in his area was not solely on areas prone to riverine flooding.

“We’ve seen paddocks not usually at risk of waterlogging go under just because of the sheer volume of rain and because there is nowhere for the water to go.”

He said he also had concerns about how the crop would fare once the weather warmed up.

“We’ve seen in the past crops that have hung on while they are sitting in water turn up their toes when that water warms up after a few fine days.

“I don’t think the water is going to get away in less than a week and there are some warm temperatures predicted so this well could be the case this year.”

The most recent Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) crop report, released in early September, was for a record national winter crop of 46.1 million tonnes with a wheat crop of 28.1mt, but many private analysts are now tipping a 10 per cent or greater reduction from these figures.

Merrin named medal winner

WINNER: Panthers forward Trent Merrin with the 2016 Merv Cartwright Medal. Pictures: Supplied.
Nanjing Night Net

Forward Trent Merrin has been named winner of the 2016 Merv Cartwright Medal at a glittering ceremony at Panthers Pavillion.

The club held its annual awards on Wednesday, October 5, with Merrin named player of the year following his outstanding debut season with the Panthers.

Merrin played 25 games for the Panthers in 2016, finishing with five tries, 56 offloads, 861 tackles and 3891 running metres,a club statement said.

The announcement came just days after Merrin was named beside teammates Josh Mansour and Panthers skipper Matt Moylan on the Australian Kangaroos squad for theupcoming Four Nations tournament, the greatest representation of players the Panthers have had on the side since 2009.

Merrin said he was “shocked” to receive the award, and described the move to Penrith as one of the biggest challenges of his life.

“I’ve just got to thank the boys, I wouldn’t be standing here at all without you boys,” he said as he received the award.“Every week I put on that jersey for youse, you made this year the most humbling and best experience of my footy career so far.

“Coming out west from the south was one of the biggest challenges of my life, one of the hardest pre-seasons I’ve ever done in my career, 42 degrees heat I’m not built for that.

Trent Merrin on stage receiving his medal.

“It was a rollercoaster coming out here, stepping out of my comfort zone, and really testing myself personally. It was a bumpy ride throughout it all. missing out on selections and whatnot and trying to get thegame down pat throughout the year.

“We finally hit our stride halfway through the year, and the bond that we built all the way throughout the year was something I haven’t been a part of and it’s something that I hold special and something we are building towards the future.”

Merrin said the club was “heading in the right direction” with the coaching staff and said there was “a lot of excitement ahead of us”.

Former local junior and Blue Mountains native Peter Wallace was named winner of three awards on the night, taking out the Try of the Year, Members’ Player of the Year, and the prestigious John Farragher Courage and Determination Award.

“I’d like to thank everyone from the coaching staff right through to the back office, Gus [Panthers general manager Phil Gould] and all the boys,” Wallace said.

Coach Anthony Griffin congratulated all players and staff who received awards, in particular Peter Wallace.

“It[theJohn Farragher Courage and Determination Award] is a magnificent recognition of what he’s done for this team,” he said. “He’s put his body on the line over the last few years for the club without much of a reward.

Crew members on board a multimillion-dollar yacht bobbing around the South Pacific Ocean with no power are being rescued after making a distress call two days ago.

The 37-metre Masteka 2 was on its way from Fiji to Sydney when it lost steering and began taking on water about 260 kilometres east of Port Macquarie on Tuesday.

Carnival Spirit, a cruise ship that responded to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s call for assistance, reached the superyacht first.

It rescued two female crew members using its fast boat and continued on its cruise to The Isle of Pines in New Caledonia.

The four remaining crew members opted to stay with the yacht to keep it afloat until further help arrived.

They were dropped supplies including satellite phones and monitored the boat’s pumps for two days.

Two tugboats reached the Masteka 2 at midnight on Wednesday and began towing it towards Sydney. The crew members remain on board.

It could take at least a day for the yacht to reach land.

“It’s not clear yet what happened,” an AMSA spokesperson said.

“The yacht lost its steering and started to take on water. We dropped pumps to them and they used those to pump the water out slowly leaking in and to keep the vessel stable.”

“Now that it is light, they are going to work out exactly what they are going to do,” the spokesperson said.

The vessel is rented out at $3000 an hour through an exclusive Sydney charter company.

It features an on-deck spa and five en suite cabins and can accommodate up to 80 guests at a time. It is sold as one of the largest luxury boats available for charter on Sydney Harbour.

“With striking contemporary lines and a five-star fitout, the Masteka 2 yacht is unsurpassed for sophisticated private parties, celebrity visits and VIP corporate events,” a description on the vessel website states.

According to Boat International, the superyacht was on the market for $15 million in 2010.

Dunkley delights supporters

Josh Dunkley tackles key Swans forward Buddy Franklin during the AFL grand final. Photo: Scott Barbour/Fairfax MediaFORMER Sale midfielder Josh Dunkley’s fairytale has continued, with a solid performance in last weekend’s grand final for the Western Bulldogs.
Nanjing Night Net

Being part of a premiership team in his very first AFL season is all down to hard work, according to his uncle David.

“He’s set his mind to it for a long time,” he said.

“His last quarter was just sensational – there were pressure acts like shepherds and assists that you don’t get stats for.

“(Coach) Bevo and the guys see things the broader public wouldn’t.”

Dunkley started from the interchange bench, but enjoyed a strong second half.

He ended the day with nine kicks, six handballs, fifteen disposals, three marks, seven tackles, contributing strongly to midfield efforts.

His excellent season and finals campaign follows winning a grand final for Sale in 2012, and success in both the Gippsland Power and V/Line Cup teams.

Speaking to the Gippsland Times after being drafted by the Bulldogs, Dunkley noted he had a good relationship with coach Luke Beveridge and was keen to play close to his family in Yarram.

Dunkley’s father Andrew played for the Sydney Swans until 2002, and while he would have been included under the father-son rule in last year’s draft, Sydney failed to match the Bulldog’s bid, due a deal allowing him to play for a Melbourne club.

Speaking to AFL南京夜网419论坛, Dunkley noted that his dad was now “90 per cent” Bulldog, but would always have a soft spot for the Swans.

His uncle David said it was surreal to see Josh’s photo everywhere.

“To open up the paper on Monday and see Josh, just thinking, “it’s real”, it hasn’t hit yet,” he said.

“He’s a future leader, he just works super hard.

“We’re extremely proud of Josh, and his parents and brother and sister, he’s had a fantastic finals series.”

Dunkley was the AFL Rising Star nominee for round 20.

Soggy holdings sell fast in tight spring market

CBRE’s Colin Medway has led 20 interested parties around “Innisvale”, Canowindra. The property is 306ha and will be auctioned next Thursday.WHERE access is possible, soddenground has forced rural property agents to get creative to make the most of the early spring market.
Nanjing Night Net

With rural listings tighter than previous years agents are keeping up with inspections withextra horsepower, including helicopters and all terrain vehicles.

“I haven’t driven a ute into a paddock for four months now,” saidCBRE head of rural transactions Colin Medway, Yass.

“I’ve got an ATV six-seater buggy which I’ve been using for inspections since the beginning of winter and for one property I’m marketingwe’ve used a helicopter to show prospective clients.”

At Forbes, where severe flooding has occurred, access to the bulk of listings has been completely cut off.

Elders agent Kim Watts, Forbes, has had to defer multiple auctions and inspections.

Agents agreedrural listings were tight.

Mr Medway had found demand for properties below $4 million had been exceptional.

“We’re marketing a 306-hectare property,Innisvale, Canowindra, and have already led inspections for 20 different parties,” he said.

Sydney-based rural property agent David Nolan, Webster Nolan Real Estate, who has “Buringa” and “Patrician”, on the go in Orangeand “The Curragh” in Tenterfield,said the wet had made it difficult to get photographs and do inspections.

He said there was “no where near” the amount of rural properties on the market this year compared to recent years.

“Demand is very good. The market could definitely handle some more listings,” Mr Nolan said.

“I think farmers are happy with the season and the income they’re receiving. They’regetting good capital growth instead of putting their money in their bank and a lot of theirchildren are coming back to the farm.”

Moree Real Estate agent Paul Kelly said the market was strong from Warialda to Walgett.

“The market is up in this district 15 per cent since the start of the year.”

There, farmers were holding on.

“I’ve got plenty of buyers but there’s not enough sellers.”

In the Riverina it was a similar story.

“When something does pop up everyone’s quite enthusiastic to get a hold of it,” saidDelta property’sTim Corcoran, Bomen.

He said farmers expanding their operationswere prepared to drive further for properties with scale.

“Itdoesn’t have to be over their backfence.”

Mr Corcoran reported hot demand for a unique 702ha cropping property, “Warrinn”, The Rock, ahead of its auction onNovember4.

Wallabies must take chances in attack against Argentina, says Will Genia

Need to convert opportunities into points: Will Genia passes against South Africa. Photo: Gallo ImagesLondon: Wallabies halfback Will Genia says Australia must take its chances in attack more than they did in Pretoria or risk being undone by a determined Argentina side at Twickenham on Saturday (Sunday AEDT).
Nanjing Night Net

Genia expressed the backline’s overwhelming sense of disappointment that so much quality ball could not be turned into points during the Wallabies’ 18-10 defeat to the Springboks last week.

The Wallabies have scored fewer points per game (17.2) than any other team in the Rugby Championship.

Apart from the two All Blacks games, they have had a reasonable share of field position, with critics saying they lack finishing polish.

Against Argentina in Perth, the Wallabies scored three tries in a frenetic opening 12 minutes and Genia says that needs to happen again if they are any chance of getting over the line in London.

“It sounds simple but [we] just [have to] look to take points when we’re inside their 22,” Genia said. “If you look back at that game in that first 10-15 minutes when we had that possession in their 22, we came away with points. If we can take our points when they’re on offer, we know that we can trust our defence to shut them out. The onus is on us as a backline to execute a little bit better. If we can do that we give ourselves every chance of winning and winning well.”

On a personal note, Genia has been one of the shining lights for the Wallabies in recent weeks.

His service has been crisp and decision-making when to attack the line has resulted in a number of handy line breaks that has put the Wallabies on the front foot.

However the overpowering message from Genia is that the Wallabies are simply not making the most of the ball they have had. Whether it be because a lack of skills, a dip in confidence in what has been a miserable year, or not having high-quality structures in place, he says it cannot continue.

“At certain times in games we haven’t been executing our skills well enough and that takes away from putting us into scoring positions or scoring plays,” Genia said. “If we can concentrate well on the process, and do that right throughout the 80 minutes consistently, I think the result will take care of itself more often than not. We’ll come out on the right side of the score.”

The nostalgia of Twickenham Stadium and the Lensbury Hotel in Teddington has hit those Wallabies who were apart of the World Cup campaign last year.

A string of five consecutive games there has the Wallabies feeling like Saturday will be just another home game but an evening time slot is a little different to what they were used to this time last year.

“Nice to come back and have those memories lingering,” Genia said. “The other thing is we are under no illusions it’s going to be tough and we aren’t relying on it being a comfortable venue for us or that there is any advantage in that.

“We’ll be working hard and getting stuck in. Maybe it means it will be a bit more dewy and the ball a bit slippery. It will be something a little different but the big atmosphere is something to always look forward to.”

Cast aside those scarves, coats and umbrellas Melburnians.

The city has taken extreme pity on her long-suffering, vitamin-D-deficient residents and has decided to part the clouds, if only for a day.

The mercury is set to climb to 26 degrees today.

(Yes, we’re excited.)

It’s not often we extend gratitude to our northern cousins, but it’s warmer air from NSW that is responsible for the welcome change.

However, Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Richard Carlyon says the transition will not be instant.

“It may take a little while for that temperature to really rise,” he warned.

“It will be a cool start, 12 degrees [was] the overnight low.”

Come lunchtime however, it will be time to take off the cardigan, expose those arms and bask in the sunshine.

“It won’t be until the middle of the day we will see the northerly wind and that will send the temperature into the 20s … and then peaking late in the afternoon,” Mr Carlyon said.

The warm conditions are set to last late into the night, with the temperatures in the 20s for most of the evening.

It may come as a shock to Melburnians who this week have become accustomed to dodging freak (but brief) hail storms, bursts of torrential rain and gale-force winds throughout the day.

So has spring finally sprung?

Not quite.

The wintry chill will return tomorrow.

“We are expecting a top of 24 degrees on Friday, but it will be cooler in the afternoon after a front has moved through, ” Mr Carlyon said.

“So the warm weather will be relatively short-lived.”

On Saturday, Melburnians can expect a low of 12 degrees and a top of 18.

“It bounces again on Sunday, back to 23 degrees,” Mr Carlyon said.

He said it will be downhill from there, with a top of 17 on Monday, while Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures around 16 degrees.

Back to winter next week

It will be a similar pattern in the rest of the state.

Mildura is set to hit a top of 29 degrees on Thursday.

“But everywhere from Monday to Wednesday will be 13 to 17 degrees,” Mr Carlyon said.

Community supports Manning family’s journey

MAMMOTH JOURNEY: Karen and Jamie Manning before starting their month-long trip from Tilpa to Dubbo. Photo: BELINDA SOOLEThe Nyngan community has rallied behind one man and his marathon journey across western NSW.
Nanjing Night Net

Jamie Manning, along with his wife Karen and three children, is riding horses from Tilpa to Dubbo to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity Limbs4Life, which provides information and support to amputees.

It’s a cause close to Mr Manning’s heart.

“What they do is they provide peer supportto amputees by other amputees and information like wound care,” he said.

“Ihad a car accident in 2014 where the car caught alight, I was trapped in the car and I was lucky to survive.

“Due to the bad infections they had to amputate to save my life. Ilost all the fingers on my left hand and I also lost my left leg.

“It’sbeen a long journey learning to ride and so fourth but Iworked with horses all my life so Imade it a goal to do so.”

Mr Manning started out from Tilpa on September 17 and had planned to spend 22 days on the road.

But inundated roads and persistent rain across western NSW has made some roads un-passable, adding about a week to the journey.

The family rides about 20 to 25 kilometres each day, and on Tuesday, October 4 they reached Nyngan.

Mr Manning said theresponse they’ve received from people along the way has been remarkable.

“We’ve been welcomed with open arms. Once you start to do something good all the good peoplecome out of thewoodwork and everyone wants to help us out,” he said.

“We stayed at the pony club at Cobar for quite a few nights and then Nyngan showground [and]the old school [in]Nevertire.

“It’shumbling…it’s a credit to themhow generous they are and friendly, always wanting to stop and have a yarn.”

At the mercy of the roll out

Kate MacMaster and Daniel Neuhaus from Trader and Co. Photo: Jessica Cole Yass Valley businesses are feeling the frustration of the ‘patchy’ and ‘uncertain’ National Broadband Networkroll out, as the FederalGovernment’s 18 month plan is nearly in its second year.
Nanjing Night Net

“For a company that works on connecting communication, they aren’t very good at communicating,”Kate MacMaster, co-owner of the newly established Trader and Co said.

“We are unsure whether they will be bringing the fixed line networkup the side streets or just running it down the main street. We have tried to find this out but have had no response.”

Trader and Co was designed asan inclusive social enterprise committed to giving back to the community, both locally and globally.

The concept was to create anecosystem where startups can establish connections,independent workers can build networks and grow without the overheads that come with traditional office space.

“We advertise for a place where people can come to work without the challenges of slow or patchy internet,” she continued.

“While the NBN will provide faster internet for all residents, connecting to the fixed linemakes it 10 times as fast.

“We just have no idea whether they have considered this, we have had no consultation and our business requires the high speed internet, as does many other businesses not on the main street.”

Trader and Co owners pay large amounts to provide wireless internet totheir customers, yet they are still faced with patchy and uncertain connection.

An NBN Co spokeswoman said about820 homes and businesses in parts of Binalong, Bowning and Yass can already connect through fixed wireless network.
