Debbie Terranova

Author Debbie Terranova to share North Queensland internment history at Burdekin Library

Burdekin residents intrigued by the treatment of so-called enemy aliens during the Second World War are invited to take part in a discussion morning with author Debbie Terranova at the Burdekin Library on Tuesday 31 July.

Burdekin residents intrigued by the treatment of so-called enemy aliens during the Second World War are invited to take part in a discussion morning with author Debbie Terranova at the Burdekin Library on Tuesday 31 July.

Entitled What Really Happened on the Home front in WWII?, Mrs Terranova’s presentation will discuss her latest novel and provide a brief history about World War II on the home front in Australia.

The presentation will also include historical photos of the Loveday internment camps in South Australia.

Though fictional, Mrs Terranova’s novel Enemies Within These Shores centres on the true events of the round up and internment of Italian workers in Far North Queensland.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said the topic of internment camps would resonate with many Burdekin residents.

“The Burdekin is rich in cultural diversity and is home to many people of Italian heritage,” she said.

“Though we now celebrate our multiculturalism, internment camps are an awful reality of our region’s history.”

Mrs Terranova, who has recently received a fellowship from the State Library of Queensland to do further research about women and war, invites all residents with personal stories from the 1939-1945 period to make contact.

In particular she is seeking to meet women who were affected by wartime national security measures, such as those who were interned due to their nationality, associations, political or religious allegiances, and those who were left behind to run farms without men.

She is also interested in discussing the various roles that women played during the war such as those who became part of the military or civilian workforce.

The discussion morning is a free event, commencing at the Burdekin Library at 10:30am.

For further information please visit Council’s website www.burdekin.qld.gov.au or contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.

John Arrate - Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships 2017

Sweet Days, Hot Nights a celebration of original cane cutters

Burdekin resident John Arrate was introduced to the art of hand cane cutting by his father while growing up on their small family farm at Clare. He will line up in the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships, part of the Sweet Days, Hot Nights Festival at Home Hill Showgrounds this 30 May and 2 June, with nothing but respect for the original hand cane cutters in the field.

Burdekin resident John Arrate was introduced to the art of hand cane cutting by his father while growing up on their small family farm at Clare.

He will line up in the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships, part of the Sweet Days, Hot Nights Festival at Home Hill Showgrounds this 30 May and 2 June, with nothing but respect for the original hand cane cutters in the field.

“They’re the ones I take my hat off to. I think it’s a bit of an honour to think you’re still competing with the guys who have done this for a living,” Mr Arrate said.

“It’s important people have the chance to see how it was done while those guys are around. Some of them are in their seventies. Being a bit of a competitor it just bugs me that I still can’t beat the old guys.”

Mr Arrate, who now owns and operates his own sugarcane farm at Home Hill, has been competing in the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships since the introduction of the Kevin Swindley Memorial prize for local cutters in 2012. “I knew the Swindley family so I thought it would be a good way of paying tribute,” Mr Arrate said.

When he first signed up it was “just to make up numbers” however one of the older cutters soon become a mentor to Mr Arrate, who has been honing his skills ever since.

He went on to win the Kevin Swindley Memorial in 2016. “Hopefully this year I’ll be holding a trophy again,” he said.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said Sweet Days, Hot Nights would incorporate the First Fire of the Season and the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships and package them with a range of family-friendly, festival-styled events.

“The First Fire on Wednesday 30 May offers visitors and locals the chance to experience the awe-inspiring sight of cane fire up close,” Cr McLaughlin said.

“On Saturday 2 June at the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships, festival-goers will witness a test of skill and endurance, a competition that brings to life the back-breaking work of a by-gone era.”

Weather permitting, on Sunday 22nd July, 2018 Council will be conducting repairs to a fire hydrant in this area which will result in an interruption to water supply for residents on Wilmington Street between Young Street and Parker Street .

As a result of these necessary works, residents will experience a loss of water supply for up to 4 hours between 10:00am and 2:00pm. All efforts will be made to keep this interruption to a minimum.

Residents are advised to store their day’s supply of drinking water before 10:00am on that day.

Residents may also experience water discolouration for a period following these planned works. It is advisable to delay washing of clothes etc., if possible, for 24 hours following this repair.

Council regrets any inconvenience that may be caused to residents as a result of these works.

For further information or for any queries, please contact Council’s Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm.

 

Animals in the Council Pound

Council publishes details of all animals that have been surrendered, impounded, or left at the pound.

Due to the number of animals that we see each week, we are only able to hold animals for 3 working days.

If you have lost an animal, or if you would like to adopt an animal from our pound, please contact our Animal Control Officers via the Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.
