REID Brown is a name to watch out for in golf circles.

The young Wingham High School student has been playing junior handicap since he was aged three, and now has a handicap of 4.5, though he proudly says he has been down to three.

The Wingham Cup was held at Wingham Golf Club on Saturday November 15, and was won by 15 year-old Reid.

Earlier this year Reid also won the Junior Club Championship, and beat his father, Rod, who won the Senior Championship, to take out overall Club Championship.

Reid’s accomplishments also include a junior team win at the 2014 Regional Golf Championships in Muswellbrook in August as a member of the Lower North Coast team, which comprises players from the Manning Valley, Buladelah, Kew, Port Macquarie and Camden Haven.

The team also competed recently in an under 16 shield competition at Gloucester, where they tied with the Hunter team, but lost on a count back.

This winter Reid competed in a schools event in the Blue Mountains, which was open to year 7, 8 and 9 students in all schools in NSW. Reid came second by only one shot.

Reid’s overall dream is to be a professional golf player, and hopes to represent Australia in the Olympics “one day”, but ,for now, he hopes to get a place in the Hunter or State teams.

If Clive Lloyd couldn’t reach it … nobody could. The WSC West Indian captain uncoiled to his legendary length in a desperate bid to snap up the wicket of Australian bowler Ray Bright. Bright survived this one, but Lloyd went on to catch him soon afterwards. The WSC Australians set the West Indians 252 to make in 2 1/2 hours (with the compulsory 15 overs in the last hour). A crowd of 9796 were at VFL Park to see the last day of the Supertest fizzle out in a draw. At stumps the West Indians were 2 for 126, never really having chased the Australian total.

Premier Hamer dropped a bombshell when he announced May 5th 1979 as the date for the state election.

Committee recommends legal protection for medicinal cannabis users

THE state government has quashed the recommendations of a parliamentary inquiry calling for the decriminalisation of medical cannabis.

A Legislative Council committee investigating legalised medical cannabis urged the government to take immediate action to provide legal protection to those using the medicine or administering it to sick children.

The inquiry found evidence of a significant number of Tasmanians using medical cannabis for serious conditions where other medications had failed.

“These individuals and those involved in the supply and administration of this medication are at risk of prosecution under Tasmanian law,” the report said.

However, Health Minister Michael Ferguson immediately ruled out making the necessary legislative changes.

HAVE YOUR SAY IN OUR POLL BELOW:

“We have previously said we will not be moving to legislate . . . as advice from Tasmania Police is it’s not necessary and could potentially create a new set of problems including opening up the risk that people would self-medicate, with no licensing or limit to quantity,” he said.

“The Police Commissioner has said Tasmania Police will not seek to criminally pursue terminally ill users of cannabis, or people who have appeared before the Legislative Council inquiry, or commented on the benefits of medicinal cannabis.”

Greens health spokeswoman Cassy O’Connor said the government had “copped out” on the recommendations.

“The very reasoned recommendations contained in this interim report must be implemented by government as a matter of priority,” Ms O’Connor said.

“There is no good reason to delay the report’s first recommendation that legislation be immediately introduced to provide Tasmanians currently using medicinal cannabis from criminal charges.”

Mr Ferguson said the government was supportive of both medical trials and the potential use of medicinal cannabis in Tasmania, “subject to a proper evidence-based approach, strong local regulatory framework and appropriate approvals from national regulators”.

The committee’s interim report called for the government to work with other states and territories in relation to the “legalisation of the prescription, administration, possession and cultivation of cannabis for medicinal use”.

It also recommended the government engage with sufficiently qualified Tasmanian companies to “progress the cultivation, extraction and processing of cannabinoids within the existing and/or future regulatory framework”.

Shadow attorney-general Lara Giddings said the opposition welcomed all recommendations put forward by the committee.

“The Legislative Council report is consistent with Labor’s policy on medicinal cannabis,” Ms Giddings said.
