ALAN JONES: Women are 'destroying the joint'

    By Malcolm Farr, National Political Editor
    news.com.au
    August 31, 2012 11:12AM

BROADCASTER Alan Jones today accused women of "destroying the joint" as he widened his attack on Julia Gillard to take in other female public figures.

Mr Jones seemed to suggest that women should not be in politics as he ranked former Victorian Police Commissioner Christine Nixon and Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore along with the Prime Minister.

Julia Gillard's most robust critic on the airwaves - he once proposed she be put in a chaff bag and dropped into the sea - was furious over the aid the Prime Minister had announced for South Pacific nations.

Pot plot exposes US family on the run for 27 years living in Julatten, northwest of Cairns


    by: Melanie Petrinec
    From: Cairns Post
    September 02, 2012 12:00AM

THE lies started with a family pact in a Las Vegas hotel room 27 years ago and ended in a far north Queensland courtroom.

For more than two decades Michael and Anita McGoldrick led an idyllic existence in the tiny community of Julatten, 90km northwest of Cairns, before authorities unravelled the secret they had gone to great lengths to hide.

Their real names were Patton and Sonja Eidson, and he was wanted in the United States for attempting to smuggle one tonne of marijuana into the country in 1986 as part of a wider plot to bring in 20 tonnes of the drug.

They were well loved in their adopted home, and residents from the tight-knit community filled Cairns District Court on Thursday to support the couple as they pleaded guilty to a slew of visa and passport fraud charges.

They held hands and gave each other reassuring looks as details of their life on the run were revealed.

Teen rapist's sentence delayed


   ZARA DAWTREY   |   September 03, 2012 02.10pm

A 15-YEAR-OLD rapist will be sentenced as an adult over a vicious sex attack on a 23-year-old woman on a Cornelian Bay walking track.

Justice Shan Tennent was due to sentence the teenager today in the Supreme Court in Hobart but decided she needed more time to consider the contents of a psychiatric report on the offender.

Prosecutor Jackie Hartnett told the court the risk he would reoffend was high.

"Your honour could not be satisfied [the offender] has insight or current or future ability to engage with therapeutic intervention," she said.

The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was just 14 when he accosted the victim -- a stranger -- and raped her at knifepoint on the Derwent riverbank in the early afternoon in January.

 ::snipping2::

Good to see he is being treated as an adult for this horrific crime.

Lawyers for Brett Peter Cowan, who is charged with murdering Daniel Morcombe, ask for witnesses to appear at committal

    by: Jasmin Lill
    From: The Courier-Mail
    September 05, 2012 12:57PM

LAWYERS for the man accused of murdering Daniel Morcombe want to quiz police witnesses who were hypnotised to see what they could recall about the teenager's disappearance.

A hearing is under way in the Brisbane Magistrates Court as the legal team for Brett Peter Cowan, 42, fights to cross examine 20 controversial witnesses at committal.

Daniel was 13 when he vanished while waiting for a bus at Woombye on the Sunshine Coast in 2003.

Chief Magistrate Judge Brendan Butler will decide on the application, where defence lawyer Michael Bosscher is arguing for the witnesses to be called.

He said he wanted to question four about hypnosis or regression therapy they underwent as part of the police investigation into the case.

Russell Crowe insists he didn't really need to be rescued by US coastguards after Kayak trouble

RUSSELL Crowe claims he was never lost during a kayaking trip, which saw he and a mate having to be rescued by US coast guards in waters off Long Island on Saturday.

The 'Noah' actor tweeted: "not lost,we knew where exactly where we were, paddling around from csh into wind, we ran out of day. Grand adventure eh @chris_feather ? (sic)"

Ashley term for teen rapist

   ZARA DAWTREY   |   September 05, 2012 04.30pm

THE victim of a 14-year-old rapist says she is satisfied with the four-year detention order handed down to her attacker in Hobart's Supreme Court this afternoon.

The now 15-year-old will remain at Ashley Youth Detention Centre for at least two years before being considered for parole.

"I would like to thank the police, the prosecution and the court staff for the support they have provided [throughout this process]," the 24-year-old woman, who has attended every court appearance, told the Mercury outside the court today.

 ::snipping2::

Taking into account troubling psychiatric reports tendered to the court, Justice Tennent said the offender presented "a particularly significant danger to the community".

"The crimes you committed were horrendous," she said.

She ordered his name be placed on the state's sex offender register for seven years upon his release.

 ::snipping2::

If treated as a juvenile he would have received half this sentence and his name would not appear on any register.

Victor's spoils for kids


   JAMES BRESNEHAN   |   September 05, 2012

TASMANIAN boxing hero Daniel Geale had no idea how he should reward himself after his historic middleweight unification world title triumph in Germany on Sunday.

But he has already treated his biggest fans - wife Sheena and kids Bailey, 8, Ariyelle, 6, and Lilyarna, 4.

When Geale arrived home on Monday night to hugs and kisses for dad, Lilyarna got a Hello Kitty bracelet and Ariyelle a Hello Kitty watch, Bailey a hand-held computer game and mum got perfume.

"I couldn't wait to get back home to see them. I was missing them so much," 31-year-old Geale said yesterday.

 ::snipping2::

Although I avoid any sports such as boxing, this young man is so humble and sincere he is a great example for any young person.

Former Hey Dad! TV star Robert Hughes to be extradited to Australia

    by: By Tom Wald in London
    From: AAP
    September 28, 2012 9:09PM

A BRITISH judge has approved the extradition of Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes, with the actor set to return to Australia within days to fight multiple child sexual assault allegations.

The 64-year-old, who played father figure Martin Kelly in the popular 1980s and 90s TV show, is facing allegations made by five people dating back nearly three decades.

Relating to children aged seven to 15 years, 11 alleged offences between 1985 and 1990 include accusations of indecent exposure, kissing, and the touching of Hughes's erect penis through clothing.

Hughes is yet to be charged with any offence and NSW police want him for questioning in Sydney.

Lone jogger gets roo'd shock as eastern grey kangaroo attacks

A QUEENSLAND man has survived a terrifying attack by an eastern grey kangaroo, delivering a knockout punch to the rogue animal's face.

The cranky female stalked Beaudesert livestock agent Carl Young last week while he was out for a run.

Mr Young, 24, was jogging in a paddock near Everdell Park at Gleneagle when the roo squared up against him and landed a swift kick to his stomach.

"I was running along when I spotted a buck and a doe with her joey on the other side of the fence," he said.

"I was about 30 yards from the mob ... when the doe started to hop toward me.

"She looked friendly enough so I didn't give it much thought but then she hopped in my path and came at me, growling and hissing.

Have been following your journey with George and hoping for the best possible outcome.

Aboriginal runners volunteer to help with recovery after New York marathon cancelled

    AFP
    November 03, 2012 4:22PM

EIGHT indigenous Australians who spent months training for the New York marathon said they were disappointed it was cancelled but will now volunteer to help the city recover from superstorm Sandy.

The six men and two women, hand-picked as part of a programme to create a potential Aboriginal distance running champion, had endured unusual training regimes, including dodging wild dogs and crocodiles on their outback runs.

But the athletes said they were all too happy to set aside their personal goals for the time being to help New Yorkers recover from the massive storm which left close to 100 people dead in the United States and Canada.

"That's what we want to do now on Sunday, to help people in New York, to make them feel happy,'' Justin Gaykamangu, from Ramingining in Arnhem Land, said from Times Square.

Have been following the devastating effects of this super storm Sandy and so glad to see San and other monkeys I know who live in the affected areas are safe.  Such a lot to do to clean up and hopefully return to some semblance of normality.

My thoughts and prayers with all who have suffered damage and loss of loved ones.

Thank you Tibro.  My home had damage but not like the homes you see on TV.  So much devastation.  People are confused and just don't know what to do.  Some people lost everything they had but still stand by to protect their home from looters while they try and salvage some of their memories.

The gas lines are still so long and we are hoping it will ease up a bit tomorrow.  They need to turn the power back on where many of the gas stations are.  Once they do that I think the tension will be less.  A lot of the people who have no lights are using generators and they run by gas and once they go low they worry they will be unable to get the gas to run the generator.

Tomorrow is another day and hopefully things will be a little better.
