The joint announcement on Thursday 4 February between the Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Hon Scot MacDonald MLC & the Mayor of Great Lakes Council Councillor Jan McWilliams that they will jointly fund a study on the vexed question of providing a trailer boat ramp for North Arm Cove, is a positive move forward towards providing this number one priority on the Coves “wish list”.

It gives rise to the possibility that this vital piece of infrastructure could be constructed before the North Arm Cove settlement turns 100 years old in 2017.

Phascogales are one of the threatened species in the area which rely on the preservation of habitat to maintain thier numbers.

You may not have seen them about as they are mostly nocturnal and have a way of hiding behind trees from humans.

This pic was taken by a Land for Wildlife member at Pindimar using a webcam.

Have you seen phascogales here in North Arm Cove?

LITTER, by Levi Tafari
Well hello everybody
How do you do?
I wanna introduce myself to you!
My name is LITTER
I dwell in the gutter
I’m comprised of glass, wood, metal and paper
I’m getting larger hour after hour
You’ll find me lurking in your area.
I move around the city
I make it untidy to human beings
I’m really unhealthy
I’m not very pretty...

As if to celebrate next week's Australia Day, the first few weeks of 2016 have brought us both scorching days and drenching rain. This is, after all, the Australia of Dorothea Mackellar's perceptive poem.

Such drenching rains are becoming a regular feature of the Cove. The deluge of the week before last, while not quite as bad as either April last year or March 1 2013, still pushed the Cove's existing drainage beyond its capacity.
Were you adversely affected by these most recent storms?
