Cameron Hammond steps up against Sedat Tasci on Saturday

Cameron Hammond steps up against Sedat Tasci on Saturday

The fight this Saturday night at The Crossing Theatre

Mananger Matt Clark expects Cameron Hammond to turn on the style when faces Sedat Tasci in a battle of former Olympians this weekend.

Hammond defends his WBA Oceania welterweight crown against the teak tough Turk on David "Spike" Syphers' show at the Crossing Theatre in Narrabri, New South Wales and Clark believes the Moree favourite will once again underline his potential for the top.

Tasci is by far Hammond's best opponent to date. Now boxing out of Sydney, the 30-year-old represented Turkey at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and has only lost once in an eight year pro career.

"Without a doubt Sedat Tasci represents the toughest challenge Cameron has faced as a professional," Clark said. "Tasci is a rough, tough brawler who had a very distinguished amateur career himself. His sole loss was for the Australian title and it was as a result of a head clash and he was only slightly behind on the cards at the time.

The results of a local business survey conducted by Narrabri Shire Council’s Economic Development Section and tabled at today’s council meeting revealed no surprises.

The majority of businesses reported a downturn in business activity over the past year, but there was optimism.

Some respondents reported an actual increase in business or maintenance of the status quo.

The council commissioned the survey last month to provide data to argue for assistance from government for business hit by the years of drought.

The results will go to federal and state members of parliament to be submitted to the relevant ministers.The survey, designed to be a ‘snapshot’, yielded 61 responses with a large majority of businesses reporting being ‘negatively impacted’ by the drought and a majority not optimistic about future growth if the drought continued unabated.

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) personnel have been busy with a ‘mammoth’ clean up since the recent cold snap which brought snow and ice to the Mt Kaputar National Park. NPWS describes widespread damage with fallen trees and limbs across large areas of the park. Visitors have been advised by NPWS to check updated conditions before visiting the park.

Mt Kaputar National Park suffered heavily from the recent ‘freak cold snap’.

“While it may have looked picturesque in the snapshots, the recent cold snap which brought snow, ice and wind to Mt Kaputar National Park caused widespread damage, bringing down tree limbs and requiring a mammoth clean-up effort” said National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Area Manager Marty Linehan.

“Staff spent days in freezing conditions to enable as much of the park to remain open as possible, so that locals could enjoy the snow.

“It was a really strange weather event,” he said.
