In spite of vast increases in pollution,
health dangers, quality of life slipping
away, traffic congestion, 24-hour noise
and water supply contamination, the
federal government pushed ahead by
Mr Hockey and our Prime Minister, is
determined to build a ridiculously loc-
ated second airport at Badgerys Creek.
If the government can’t see common
sense and are just being led by the
money-makers, at least give us the same
conditions as our cousins at Sydney
Airport, with a night curfew so the res-
idents can get some reasonable sleep.
After all we were told in 2004 by the
then Howard government that Badgerys
was cancelled and would not be revis-
ited until at least 2030, as Sydney Air-
port was at only 61 per cent used
capacity and a better solution may be
found by then.
So why has Joe Hockey sold us out to
the profiteers and lobbyists at the cost
of the health of the western and south-
I have no problem with people mak-
ing honest profits, but not by endanger-
ing the health of local residents.

Did you know?
Tuesday, January 27, is the
International Day of Commemoration
in Memory of the Victims of the
Holocaust. The day coincides with the
70th anniversary of the liberation of the
camps and is centred on the theme
‘‘Liberty, Life and the Legacy of the
Holocaust Survivors’’. Details:
Place, both the Prime Minister Tony
Abbott and the Leader of the Opposi-
tion Bill Shorten said we should not
give him publicity but go about our
business as usual.
Both ABC TV and Channel 9 suspen-
ded all regular programs to broadcast
continuous coverage, giving the gun-
man free publicity, showing and trans-
lating the writing on the flag he made
two women hold to the window.
All other young fanatics now know
how to be heard.
Will either channel publicly admit
their errors when the next seige occurs,
possibly with greater loss of life.

Fallen soldier’s letter
Somewhere in the Macarthur area is a
grandson of the late Herb Marden
whose father fell at the decisive battle
of El Alamein.
He has a letter which his father had
written beforehand to the son he might
I am anxious to hear from him in
order to write an article for the special
Anzac Day publication prepared by our
local MP Chris Patterson.
If the gentleman would leave informa-
tion at Mr Patterson’s electorate office I
would be most grateful.

We’ve had reports of brown snakes
along the Camden bike track.
Helen Venn Keaton: [I] live at
Cobbitty we’ve had three red belly
blacks and a huge brown.
Janette Lindsay: Yes I knew about
them being there.
Kim Townsend: Yes we had a red
belly black snake in our house
yesterday. I freaked.
Leonie Shaw: There’s lots of big
brown snakes around Gundagurra
Reserve. Tara Austin: Saw a dead red belly
black snake near Harrington Park
lake between shops and lake on
Tuesday. Dimmy Nicholson: I’m so bloody
glad I moved from Camden. Our yard
used to back onto the bike track. We
always got red bellies and my black
lab was bitten once, nearly killed
him. Garry Muir: Yes, walking around
Harrington Park lake.
Abby Andrew Virga: My mum had a
red belly in her house.

From Paul Wakeling Motor Group Managing Director, Scott Wakeling
The 14th of January holds great signi?cance in the Wakeling Family….it was January 14th 1985 when Dad ?rst opened the doors to a new
business in Blaxland Road…Paul Wakeling Holden had entered the Macarthur Region…
Back then Dad operated for a few months out of a small shed with some workshop bays out the back…starting with 5 loyal employees who had
followed him up from Canberra, the early days must have had a kind of pioneering spirit about them.
Eventually we moved the sales operations to a somewhat controversial yard in Hollylea Road whilst the new building was being constructed just
opposite…I remember a picture that someone had framed for Dad - it was a picture of him sitting on a milestone with the Woodbine hills in the
background, devoid of trees and with the construction site taking place, the caption in the picture read “The Promised Land”…how prophetic!
Today, some 30 years on, Wakeling Automotive now employs over 200 people, the majority locals, turns over somewhere near $300M per annum
and supports numerous local organisations and charities including our very own Wheels For Life Program which has seen Wakelings donate
almost 1 million dollars to support Campbelltown and Camden Hospitals…not bad for a young man from Canberra…thank you Macarthur for all
your support since 1985 and into the future…here’s to another 30 years!!!
