CUNNINGHAM’S 362 Clarinda St Parkes 6862 2522 Monday to Friday 7am-7.30pm Saturday to Sunday 7am-7pmOPENING HOURSSHOW TIME! The fireworks was once again a highlight for many people. On Tuesday Rebeckah Auld (left) was sashed as the 2019 Parkes Showgirl taking over from Amelia Tanswell (middle). On the right is Melaney Smede, 2019 Miss Parkes Teenager.Parkes Show Generates Light ReliefThe Parkes Show fireworks lighting up the sky on Tuesday night was symbolic of how our community keeps on shining despite tough times brought about by the current drought. “I am very happy with the 139th show,” said President Peter Unger. “I was concerned about the influence the drought would have and that people would stay away, but the entries have been good with some areas filled up to capacity.” Peter said his greatest wish for the community was that people would just enjoy the company of friends at the show. “I would be satisfied if people had come to the show to get away from their daily routine and had a good time.” Parkes Show Vice-President Bridget Lee was very happy with this year’s five finalists in the Parkes Showgirl competition. “The judges said they had a really hard choice to make and they were very impressed with the contestants’ knowledge of the community.” As people streamed through the gates on the half day public holiday on Tuesday, Rebeckah Auld became the 2019 Parkes Showgirl. Rebeckah is studying online through Deacon University for a Bachelors of Communications. In her outgoing speech 2018 Parkes Showgirl, Amelia Tanswell said she loved being part of a rural community, and congratulated this year’s contestants for stepping up and having a go. The Miss Parkes Teenager winner is Parkes High School student Melaney Smede.

Recycled Water For Green Parks: Construction on the Recycled Water Rising Main is complete, with the 12km purple pipeline connecting selected public greenspaces around Parkes. The project also included the construction of a reservoir on Nash Street and pump stations at Nash Street, Renshaw McGirr Way and the Recycling Facility. Commissioning and testing started at Armstrong Park last week. Other parks and sporting fields will be switching to recycled water in the coming months. Parkes Shire Council’s Director Infrastructure, Andrew Francis said: “We are on track to turn on the purple taps as we move into summer, so our parks and ovals will be irrigated with recycled water during peak water demand. The scheme ensures ourFriday 30 August 2019 Page 3QUESTION of the week sporting amenities are maintained through dry times, and will ease pressure on our drinking water supplies.” Irrigation will be scheduled at night, although testing may take place during business hours during commissioning. While recycled water is safe for irrigation, it is not suitable for human consumption and direct contact with sprinkler sprays should be avoided. Grants To Protect Local Environment: Local communities in the Central West and Riverina can share in $150,000 of funding in the Communities Environment Program. Each electorate can receive funding for up to 20 projects, with the minimum grant being $2,500 and the maximum grant set at $20,000. Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open and should be returned before 27th September. To be eligible you must be a community organisation, which is a legal entity and able to enter into a grant agreement with the Commonwealth.

To live long enough to see the Dragons win another grand final!Light Up Your SmileYou deserve to be the best version of yourself. That is why at Baker Dental we offer a range of safe and pioneering dentistry services to help you feel more confident and youthful. Our services include in-chair teeth whitening and take home custom whitening kits. In-chair teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that lifts stains from the pores of teeth and lightens the colour of natural tooth enamel, leading to the appearance of whiter, brighter teeth. In-chair teeth whitening is the quickest dental solution for whitening teeth and removing or reducing stains and discolouration. It typically involves the application of the whitening product directly onto the teeth and the use of UV light to activate and accelerate the whitening agent. With in-chair teeth whitening, results are typically achieved within a 60-minute dental appointment. At your in-chair whitening appointment you will be given custom trays and take home whitening gel to continue whitening maintenance at home. The second option is the take home whitening kit, which are a more affordable option for whitening. At your dental appointment an impression of your teeth will be taken and a custom tray will be made for you. You will also receive a whitening gel syringe kit with these custom trays. You’ll wear the trays for a certain period of time, usually for 45 mins depending on your circumstances. The take home kit enables you to control the process at home. It is ideal for patients who would like to whiten their teeth on their own time. Results are usually achieved within two weeks. Contact Baker Dental to see which option of teeth whitening is best suited to you.Teeth Whitening – in chair bleaching & take home whitening kitsLITTLE Black Book QUALIFIED DRIVING INSTRUCTOR Phone Elaine to book your lessonGeneral Dentistry – check ups, scale & cleans, x-rays, fillingsCONTACT USCnr Church & Hill Sts, Parkes 2870 T: 02 6862 1391 E: tjbakerptyltd@bigpond.com www.bakerdentalgroup.com.auYour free weekly guide to what’s happening in and around Parkes...shoplocally first!Friday 30 August 2019 Page 5Upgrades A Welcome Relief The completion of construction work to revitalise six Parkes Shire townships and boost their economies during the drought were celebrated last week.

Seventeen-year-old Pascal Berry not only represented Australia at the first ever female competition in the World Roller Games held in Barcelona, Spain in August, but she ended in ninth position in the world ranking for female scooter riders. Pascal, who is the number one female rider in NSW and the ACT, and number four in Australia, said she was so stoked to be part of this historic event. “It was awesome being part of getting the sport to a higher level.” Pascal competed against 17 other riders from five countries saying the competition was very tough. The new indoor skate park built specifically for the event, had three sections that competitors had to hit. “The judges also looked at consistency, technicality and originality,” said Pascal. “Weeach had two 45 second runs.” Looking ahead Pascal is excited for the new season that kicks off in Australia next month with a new sponsor, Tilt. She needs to take part in three of the five competitions across the country in order to get a ranking. While her aim is to get better and bigger, she would also like to continue her encouragement of the sport among girls. “I would love to see more girls taking part in competitions. I enjoy teaching the younger kids new tricks.” Pascal said she just loved interacting with everyone at the skate park and helping them. She will also work on her favourite trick the rotar whip, which involves spinning the bars and deck at the same time in different directions. With her passion and drive, Pascal is not only heading for great things but sure to become a catalyst for the younger generation to follow in her scooter trails.
