Local wool fit for a king

Originally published: Saturday, 30th April, 2011


By Kurtis Eichler

For wool grower and property owner Robert McBride it’s “magic” to have the heir to the throne wearing his wool on his first official trip as a married man.
Mr McBride, from Tolarno Station near the city, supplied a “couple of kilos” of wool for the grey merino wool suit, which Prince William will show off on his visit to Canada with wife Catherine.
“It’s magic that the king in waiting is essentially wearing our wool,” Mr McBride said.
Wool was donated by 211 Australian wool growers and blended together to make the suit, with the surplus to be auctioned off for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
“It’s more a symbolic gesture,” Mr McBride said.
“It’s good to see that we’re recovering from the worst drought in living memory.”
The 48-year-old father of two said he hoped the wool suit would mean more people would wear the natural fabric and make it in “vogue”.
“We want people to think, ‘the prince wears wool, so we should too,” Mr McBride said.
“Prince Charles is the second largest wool grower in England, and we want young kids in Broken Hill to be excited in their own industry.”

Local man drownes

Originally published: Saturday, 30th April, 2011

Police are investigating the apparent drowning of a 62-year-old local man in the Darling River near Wilcannia on Thursday night.
The man had been camping with a family friend at Calpaulin Station, via Wilcannia and was last seen alive around 6pm on Thursday night, according to police.
Detective Inspector Mick Stoltenberg from the Barrier Local Area Command said concerned friends alerted police after the man was not seen for several hours.
Wilcannia State Emergency Service crews found the man’s body at 11.20pm more than a kilometre from the camp site.
Det Insp Stoltenberg said it appeared the man lost his footing and fell into the river.
“It appears at this time, that the male has unfortunately lost his footing on the slippery banks of the river, falling in and subsequently drowning,” Det Insp Stoltenberg said.
“There were marks on the river bank.
“The bank was very slippery.”
Both Wilcannia and Broken Hill police attended the incident and police are preparing a brief of evidence for the Coroner.
The man’s name has not been released.

South to stay on top

Originally published: Saturday, 30th April, 2011

By Baldock
A double-header at league headquarters today kicks off with North up against South, while in the late game Central will take on West in round three of local football.
League leaders South will be trying to consolidate their position on top of the ladder after an impressive start to the season while North will be out to judge just where they stand - as either a pretender or contender.
It should be a great contest with these arch rivals going head to head. Across the two opening rounds the Roos have been very impressive. They have a key forward in Cody Schorn who has started the season with two five-goal bags and you can not under estimate his value to this South side.
The Roos also have Ty Corey who can play down back or up forward if the situation warrants, while support usually comes from Stephens or the O’Brien boys, with the crumbing work left to Burns and Purcell.
In the middle South has some pretty handy types with none better than Billy Dolan. His influence and experience at the stoppages goes a long way in setting up his side for a victory and now they have another hard nut in John Dunne - whose straight approach at the ball usually sees him win many of the hard contests and continue to drive his side forward - the Roos seem to have plenty of match winners up the field.
They also have a solid back half lead by Arlen Bird who is rarely beaten week in week out, while Corey, Staker, Vlatko and Davis are thrown in for good support which makes the Red and Whites one formidable outfit.
The Roos have also unearthed a couple of handy big boys in Johnny Holmes and Aiden Pettitt who are more than capable of supporting Jayson Higgins in the ruck.
Just where do the Bulldogs stand in the big picture of the 2011 season?
Well today we just might find out. Word on the street is that Anthony Henderson has again walked away from the Robins and is heading back to the kennel were he could spend some time in the dog house ... but he will again be an important player for North.
Speaking of important players, Ashley Bates is going to be crucial to North as he can fill in the gaps in defence and can also go forward and become a goalkicker.
North will this week welcome back Nat Rayner and he will be great support for Jeb Watson either up forward or in the ruck.
The heart and soul of the Bulldogs comes from the midfield with Johnson, Kelly and Howard. If these three players can get enough of the footy then they will be in with a real chance.
Down back Dempster, Oldsen and Hack are all solid but they will need support from there team-mates. The real concern though is North’s forward half. While Billings, Mason and McConnell look capable there is a height concern.
This should be a great game, but South’s form is pretty good and they should claim the premiership points today.
I’m tipping the Roos to get home by 15 points.
