Emerging talent Goodna's Lama Tasi in QAS squad


IF YOU want to know why Lama Tasi has been named in the QAS Emerging Origin squad after only nine games of top grade football, you may want to ask Greg Bird.

Rising Roosters enforcer Lama Tasi takes a break at his family home in Goodna.


IF YOU want to know why Lama Tasi has been named in the QAS Emerging Origin squad after only nine games of top grade football, you may want to ask Greg Bird.

In his first top grade NRL match, the new Sydney Roosters enforcer delivered a bone-crunching shoulder charge to the Gold Coast Titans lock that had left Bird seeing stars and Roosters fans screaming for more.

So despite an injury-interrupted first season where he missed as many games as he played, Tasi has made enough of an impression to secure a place at the Emerging Origin camp in Brisbane from January 20-22.

No one was more surprised at his selection than the softly spoken-footballer himself.

"I was shocked more than anything, I really didn't expect it," Tasi said of his reaction when told he was in the squad.

Tasi's selection may be as much about securing the 104kg prop as a future Queensland and Australian player as rewarding his debut season.

Having already played for the New Zealand under-20 team, Tasi, like many other NRL stars with family ties to New Zealand, found himself having to decide where his representative future lay.

Would he commit to a representative career for the Kiwis, where he lived until the age of four, or take his chances on a future with Queensland and Australia?

The former Goodna player said, in the end, the choice wasn't really a choice at all.

"In the last off-season, I had a talk to my family and close friends and everything just started to make sense," he said.

"I've played all my junior footy in Queensland.

"This is where I developed as a player.

"This is where I've been brought up my whole life."

After spending nearly his entire childhood in Queensland, Tasi said there was one reason above all that confirmed his representative future.

"Internationals are good but at the end of the day the pinnacle of rugby league is State of Origin," he said. "Everyone around the world no matter who you are ... everyone watches Origin."

If toughness is the key ingredient to a successful transition to Origin football, then Tasi may have already shown Maroons powerbrokers he has what it takes.

The 190cm (6ft 3in) forward's pain threshold was on display during the Roosters match against the Newcastle Knights in May when he returned to the field in the second half despite suffering a fractured ankle.

The decision proved the 21-year-old was willing to put his team ahead of himself, a key ingredient to Origin success.

"We were running low on troops so I got an injection and kept playing," he said

"I probably shouldn't have."

The injury kept Tasi on the sidelines for six weeks but he returned late in the season and rubber stamped his talent with a series of strong performances.

Tasi will join Roosters team-mate and former Ipswich player Martin Kennedy at the January camp which will be overseen by QAS head coach Wayne Bennett and Maroons mentor Mal Meninga.

A star of a house at Goodna to be heritage listed

THE childhood home of cinema mogul Edward Carroll has been identified as a place of historical significance to Ipswich.
Contributed






Goodna resident Dot McGreevy and Ipswich Councillor Paul Tully admire the historic home at Queen St Goodna which once hosted Hollywood entertainers. 


THE childhood home of cinema mogul Edward Carroll has been identified as a place of historical significance to Ipswich.

The Queenslander, built in 1906 at 16 Queen St, Goodna, will be marked with an Ipswich City Council historical plaque to encourage its conservation.

Carroll, of Birch Carroll and Coyle cinema fame, lived in the Goodna home with his brother Dan and teacher parents.

The boys grew up to co-own local theatres and screened silent films in Brisbane and Ipswich in the early 20th century.

Carroll achieved fame when he partnered with Birch and Coyle to build some of Queensland's first cinemas in the 1920s.

They built the first cinemas in Ipswich and Rockhampton before expanding across Queensland.

Over the years, the family hosted many famous entertainers at their Goodna home, and became well-known for their large parties and dances.

Current owner Dot McGreevy said she was surprised to learn that Scottish entertainer Harry Lauder had visited the house.

"They always had famous violinists, singers and pianists over, but to hear Harry Lauder stayed here was very exciting," Ms McGreevy said.

"We bought the house not knowing anything about its past, and the neighbours used to tell us all these amazing stories.

"Apparently Harry Lauder came to a party here one night and burst out in song.

"It's a very nice, ordinary home, so you wouldn't suspect a thing about all those ballroom parties and big, glamorous events."

Planning and Development Committee chairman Paul Tully said council launched the historical marker project in 1999 to promote public awareness of historic sites.

"Through these markers we are providing a permanent and enduring way for the memories of the past to be kept alive," he said.

Home is where the heart is for Goodna's ex-Eagle and Roosters' recruit Lama Tasi

TO SAY family is important to Sydney Roosters forward Lama Tasi is possibly the understatement of the year.

Former Goodna Eagle's player Lama Tasi (far left) with his family at their Goodna home.


TO SAY family is important to Sydney Roosters forward Lama Tasi is possibly the understatement of the year.

Anyone who has the opportunity to sit down and chat to the former Goodna Eagles enforcer will quickly find out family comes first, second and last on his list of priorities.

It's not surprising then the Auckland born 21-year-old was smiling from ear to ear this week as he spent Christmas with his family at their Goodna home.

The oldest of seven children, Lama said he was finally getting used to life in Sydney but Goodna is never far from his thoughts.

"It (Sydney) was hard at the start, but at the end of the day you just have to think you're doing it for your family and yourself," Lama said.

"I come home whenever I can.

"Obviously during the off-season, whenever I get a couple of days off or even when we have the bye."

Lama will return to Sydney next week after enjoying a 10-day break with proud dad Faasaai, mum Sialaia and siblings Sia, 19, Tautaltasi, 17, Sani, 15, Faatali, 13, Anne-Marie, 10 and Laki 8.

But he may not be alone at the Roosters for long.

After graduating from Ipswich Grammar School last month, 17-year-old Tautaltasi is also packing his bags for Bondi as he prepares to trial with the Roosters S.G. Ball development side.

With 15-year-old Sani also on the Roosters books, the Tasi family may soon have a home away from home in the New South Wales capital.

Big brother Lama said he was excited about the prospect of having his younger brother at the club.

"It would be exciting - everything would change," he said. "We'd have to get a place together."

For now, Lama will focus on building a name for himself after his breakout season in the NRL this year.

One thing is certain though, this family man's heart will remain in Goodna long after his plane lands back in Sydney.

Goodna RSL Services Club ready for rebuild

 

Goodna RSL in the 2011 floods

It's been a tough year for Goodna RSL. In January 2011, the Club was one of the worst hit by the floods. Water levels peaked at over the roof of the three level building, destroying equipment, stock and almost closing the Club for good. To make matters worse, the floods all but wiped out the brand new community centre the Club built just a few hundred meters down the road.

The resilience of the Club has prevailed with news this week that work to re-instate the main Club venue will commence early in the New Year. DWS assisted the committee with securing finance and with licensing issues. DWS consultant Danny Hickey has developed in conjunction with the Club, a business continuity plan in the event that a flood re-occurs.

President David Christie said "Losing the main trading club was one thing but the greatest regret for me was losing the community centre. It's the home for a number of ex-service organisations including the Vietnam Veterans Association and the Young Diggers".

"The loss of our staff and loss of jobs is hard to deal with too. You can replace carpets and equipment but some of our staff have worked at the Club for over ten years. They've had to move on and find jobs elsewhere."

The Club acted quickly and created a small temporary venue on Brisbane Terrace to generate some income while approvals for the re-building of the main premises were sought and finance approved.

Westpac has now approved the Club's finance application to proceed to with the re-instatement of the fitout, furniture and equipment at the Club and Ipswich City Council has fast-tracked approvals to get the Club operational. The Club provided over $1,000,000 in donations, grants and in-kind support to the community over the past five years.

Our sale of the century

A NINE-STOREY office tower tipped to kick-start Ipswich's CBD renewal has netted $93 million.

Artist impression of the $93 million office tower to be built at the corner of Brisbane and Bell Sts.

 
A NINE-STOREY office tower tipped to kick-start Ipswich's CBD renewal has netted $93 million.

Yet to be built, the planned office building on the corner of Bell St and Brisbane St was sold to property fund manager Cromwell.

Developer Leighton Properties described the sale as the Queensland's biggest transaction for office space outside Brisbane.

Cr Pisasale said it was a vote of confidence in Ipswich City Council's decision to purchase the Ipswich City Square precinct for $45 million three years ago.

"Our vision for the city is not to look like Brisbane - we will not be a city of high rises," Cr Pisasale said. "We will embrace the Bremer River and Riverlink and the mall will be part of the one CBD."

When complete, the building is to be occupied by about 1200 state public servants, with underground car parking and retail businesses on ground level.

Ipswich City Properties chairman Paul Tully said such an early sale was not unusual for this type of development.

"It's a pretty good," he said.

"This is a confidence-boost for us actually," Cr Tully said.

"There's a degree of certainty about our plans for the CBD, but who would have ever thought this could happen in Ipswich?

"We are ecstatic about it."

Cr Tully said the city was on target to break even on its initial investment by 2016.

After that, any profits made from the CBD renewal will go back into the city.

When asked about unoccupied office space elsewhere in the CBD, he said he believed the interest stirred up through the sale of the Bell St tower would encourage other businesses to come to Ipswich.

"Success breeds success," he said.

"At this point I would rather have an oversupply of office space than an undersupply."

Providing about 18,000sq m of office space, the building is the first of three office towers planned for a revitalised Ipswich.

As part of the $1 billion renewal project, council is also planning to further develop the Riverheart Parklands.

Leighton Properties commercial head Andrew Borger said the history-making sale showed the quality of the project

"The long-term lease of the entire commercial component of the office tower from the State Government has also sent a resounding message that Ipswich is a growth city of the future," Mr Borger said.

Construction will begin next month.

Arsonists torch school bus at Goodna

Vehicle fire, Ipswich

 
by Queensland Police Service on Wednesday, 09 November 2011

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a vehicle fire at an educational facility in Goodna overnight.

 Police were conducting a patrol in the area when they noticed smoke and flames coming from within the Stuart Street premises just before 4am.

 The pair attempted to put out the blaze using a fire extinguisher until emergency services arrived, however the fire caused extensive damage to the vehicle.

 Police are treating the fire as suspicious and are seeking any further information anyone may have in regards to this incident.

 Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

 Crime Stoppers is a charitable community volunteer organisation working in partnership with the Queensland Police Service.

That's a deep hole in Lower James Street Goodna

PIC: The hole in Lower James St Goodna showing the top of the roadway on the top right down to the black roof of the excavator at the bottom.


As part of the Ipswich Motorway upgrade, a major drainage connection is being built from James St, behind the Goodna State School, under the Ipswich Motorway and railway line and then underground direct to the Brisbane River on Brisbane Terrace.

The project which is due for completion in mid-2012 will divert stormwater from the existing open drain which runs from Lower Stuart St, back across Lower James St, Lower Albert St, Lower William St and through the Evan Marginson Park to Woogaroo Creek.

The construction is a joint Federal, State and Ipswich City Council project.

Division 2 Councillor said the new pipe would divert the majority of water direct to the Brisbane River during major rain events which have caused localised flooding in the past.

"It will not reduce riverine flooding but will have a major impact on Q100 rain events in the western part of Goodna," Cr Tully said.

The new 2.4 metre diameter pipe runs underground for the full length of Lower James St from the railway line to the Brisbane River.

Goodna robbery a blow to fundraising efforts

 


TWO Goodna veterans' groups are seething at the theft of a vital piece of community fundraising equipment.
Goodna RSL sub branch president Vivienne Stanbury and Veterans’ Support president Phil Allen in the shed where a generator was stolen.
 

TWO Goodna veterans' groups are seething at the theft of a vital piece of community fundraising equipment.

With all their equipment piled into a modest shed after the January floods, the Goodna RSL sub branch and the Veterans Support and Advocacy Service have been targeted by thieves several times this year - the most recent being last weekend.

Offenders entered a storage shed and unbolted a large generator from the groups' mobile barbecue kitchen trailer.

RSL sub branch president Vivienne Stanbury said several community and church groups used the trailer, usually free of charge, for fundraisers.

"The first time they robbed us they took money - now it's a generator which we simply can't afford to replace," she said.

"What we do is all voluntary and the expense of all this thieving is just not on.

"On another occasion they even tried to steal the hot water cylinder out of the laundry."

The crime has been reported to police but the veterans' groups hold little hope of the offenders being caught.

Security at the storage shed is virtually non-existent and the area - opposite the RSL Services Club in Goodna - is usually deserted at night.

Veteran Support president Phil Allen said attempts would be made to beef up security.

"Unfortunately you've got a group of veterans here who are annoyed to the point where they are considering setting up booby traps," Mr Allen said.

Both groups are still looking for a permanent home, but Mrs Stanbury said they would require a government grant of land and a building for this to happen.

"The generator was used to power the lights and freezer on the trailer, so now we've got church groups missing out," she said. "This was something that served the entire community, yet someone saw fit to steal it for their own selfish purposes."

Anyone with information about the theft should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

New legislation for neighbourhood disputes in effect today

Attorney-General, Minister for Local Government and Special Minister of State

The Honourable Paul Lucas

New legislation for neighbourhood disputes in effect today

New legislation to help resolve disputes about overhanging trees and dividing fences is in effect today.

Attorney General Paul Lucas said the Neighbourhood Disputes Resolution Act replaced the Dividing Fences Act which had been in effect since 1953.

He said the Act clarified who was responsible for building and maintaining dividing fences and who was responsible for ensuring trees and branches did not impose on someone else's property.

"Prior to these changes there was no legislation covering backyard trees," he said.

"These modern laws clearly spell out neighbours' obligations in relation to fences and trees to better reflect a 'fair go' all round.

"Whilst most people might find it easy to trim a overhanging branches for many people including the elderly or people with disabilities, this is impossible.

"From today, if someone believes a tree poses a danger or it's adversely affecting their land they can write to the owner, requesting for it to be trimmed or removed.

"They can also recover up to $300 for professional services to trim a tree under 2.5 metres if parties can't agree on a resolution.

"First and foremost, we want to see neighbours communicating with each other about these matters and trying to reach a resolution.

"These laws set the ground rules and also either party to refer the matter to the QCAT agreement can't be reached."

Mr Lucas said the new legislation also includes a clear definition of a sufficient dividing fence and how cost should be apportioned.

"The legislation provides a clear picture of when a fence needs to be replaced and what is a reasonable contribution to its installation and maintenance," he said.

Mr Lucas said it was important the legislation was in place before summer.

"We've already seen the storm season kick off in Queensland this year and we're expecting more to come," Mr Lucas said.

"Though it's not expected to be anywhere near as bad as last year, people should be taking steps now to prepare.

"That's why it's important gardens and fences are in good order to ensure dangerous objects aren't flying around in the middle of a storm and that's where this legislation can help."
