Sex abuse kept quiet

Commission appearance: Bishop Gerard Hanna, pictured delivering mass this year, gave evidence in Sydney on Wednesday.

At a 1984 meeting of church leaders in Armidale the decision was made to send Farrell, then in his 30s, to the East Tamworth parish in northern NSW despite allegations he’d abused a number of boys while an assistant priest at Moree, the child sex abuse royal commission heard.

Bishop of Wagga Wagga Gerard Hanna, then a priest at East Tamworth, said the then-Bishop of Armidale, Henry Kennedy, had assumed two months was long enough to allow for any of Farrell’s victims to come forward.

‘‘He constantly resorted to the phrase, ’no one has come forward, there are no charges. There’s no reason why he can’t be put back into ministry’,’’ Bishop Hanna said on Wednesday.

The reasons for Farrell’s removal from Moree were kept quiet, the bishop said, and there was no report to the police or public inquiry.

When he asked Bishop Kennedy for details about what Farrell had done he was told, ‘‘It’s that usual thing, he was messing around with altar boys’’ and ‘‘you have got to regard him as a big risk and give him restricted ministry and keep an eye on him’’.

In Tamworth Farrell was forbidden from conducting school masses and given limited access to children, which he ‘‘deeply resented’’, according to Bishop Hanna.In 1987 he was charged with a string of sexual offences relating to a boy at Narrabri, but a magistrate ruled there was insufficient evidence for a trial.

After the charges were dismissed, Bishop Kennedy wanted Farrell to stay in Tamworth but Bishop Hanna thought he should have been sent to live in a disused Bondi convent with other priests.

He told the commission Bishop Kennedy should have acted decisively to stop Farrell from working with children.

‘‘I think he should have decided that there was no place for John Farrell in the diocese, in fact, anywhere, where he would exercise priestly ministry,’’ the bishop said.

The hearing continues.

Inglewood is still off the radioactive dump site list, despite the rumours. However a small community in South Australia is going through the same process which caused a community rift in Inglewood earlier in the year.Inglewood is not back on the radioactive dump list, at least not yet.
Nanjing Night Net

The rumour mill suggested that may bethecase last week after a dump proposal site hadhit condemnation from locals in South Australia..

But the process is proceeding so its not a question of back to square one as some may have suggested according to Federal Member for Maranoa, David Littleproud.

He pointed out that nominations are open for “local” community members to join the Barndioota Consultative Committee (BCC), the next step in the consideration of a site for a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility in South Australia.

Wallerberdina station near Barndiootain the Flinders Ranges hadbeen picked as a possible siteafter Inglewood had been taken out of the equation.

“The Government is engaging with local communities every step of the way during this process, and this committee will be another way for residents to be directly involved,” Minister for Resources and Northern Australia Matt Canavan said.

“The appointment of the Barndioota Consultative Committee is the next important step in this consultation process, which will help the local community decide whether this project is right for this region.

“The Government is determined to find a suitable location for a facility to manage Australia’s radioactive waste, which is mainly generated as a direct result of the production of nuclear medicine, needed by an average of one in two Australians at some point during their lifetime.

“Over the past 50 years, Australia’s waste has been managed using ad-hoc, temporary solutions in more than 100 locations around the country. While it is stored safely and securely, Australia needs a permanent purpose-built facility.

The committee will meet regularly during the consultation process and provide advice on aspects of the proposal including a$2 million Community Benefit Scheme.

“There are a number of jobs, business opportunities and community benefits that would come alongside the facility for Australia’s waste. But we understand there are also important questions local residents want to ask,” Minister Canavan said.It would all soundfamiliar to Inglewood residents.And onlytime will tell what happens next.

JBS win grand champion

It came as a surprise to the writer when it was announced that the iconic Pastoral house Elders was in the process of divesting themselves from the live export trade.
Nanjing Night Net

JBS won the grand champion exhibit at the Australian Food Awards conducted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, with their Beef City Black.

No doubt many better informed people than myself will write and discuss at great length this latest development in our industry.

Elders not so long ago in real terms were in dire straits with their financial bottom line.

That last two years or so have seen a major turn around which probably should be recognised as oneof the great success stories in the agency industry in modern times.

To realise how correct this suggestion is one only has to look at where their share price is currently and where it came from in not such a very long time.

No doubt the generals at the head office feel that more concentration on their core business will produce greater returns for their shareholders.

Duan Woodham for the last four years was senior livestock manager for JBS based at Dinmore.

In August he parted company with his former employees and has taken positionas Northern regional Divisional Manager for rural agency operations with Rural Co.

Mr Woodham comes to the new position with a highly regarded reputation having spent 27 years in the livestock agency and beef processing industry.

This new appointment allows Dick Cameron, who had previously held the position, to be only involved now in a consulting role with Rural Co.

As most people would remember Mr Cameron was one of the driving forces behind the strategy which saw the Rural Co. brand become one of the prominent players in the agency industry, that it is today.

While on the subject of JBS the company has won the grand champion exhibit at the Australian Food Awards conducted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, with their Beef City Black.

This competition in an annual move was conducted over a single class which saw Beef CityBlacknot only outperform other grainfed entries but also Wagga and MSA back grassfed brands.

The normal criteria of taste, tenderness, juiciness, flavour, overall appeal and visual attractiveness was also considered.

A spokesperson for JBS said that it showed that a large volume player could produce a consistent product that was always available and of the very highest of eating quality.

One reader of the column suggested that he felt it was important to readers that at some stage sale highlights be noted so that the graziers are aware what may be achieved if the right stock are presented in the best possible manner.

While I don’t have access to other agent sales books and certainly do not suggest that, these sales that we report are very best results achieved on any given day, some results from our recent catalogue include:

Tim Foran steers 355c, $2196.

Grs Mitchell euro cross steers 386.6c, $1631.

Tim Foran steers 355c, $2196.

.M.Lees and Sons euro cross cows 278c, $1915.

Taylor Ag angus cows 272c, $2053.

C & C Vogt Angus steer vealers 408.6c, $1142.

The above cattle were drawn from Dubbo, Yeoval, Gilgandra, Neilrex, and Coonabarabran.

Simon and Pip Archer from Merrygoen received a nice double over consecutive days with their heavy steers at 361.6c returning $2106 for a deck of principally two tooths.

In the same time frame table top of lambs sold for a tidy $199 per head from the same vendors.
