Adelaide composer Glyn Lehmann says he was honoured to find a song he penned for Harmony Day had been included in a memorial for slain British MP Jo Cox.Cox was murdered by far-right fanatic Thomas Mair on June 16, 2016, shortly before the UK voted to leave the European Union.Last week, more than 1,000 children from 23 local schools in her Batley and Spen electorate came together to take part in the Step Into The Future memorial walk.Lehmann said he received an email last Thursday asking if his song Everyone Belongs could be used at the event, and he instantly said yes.”It seems like she was a truly amazing person and touched so many people at a relatively young age,” he said.”It really is an honour to have my song associated in any way with someone like that.”

Lehmann wrote the song in 2014 for Harmony Day, a day of celebration of Australia’s cultural diversity.”It’s about acceptance and benefits of diversity,” he said.”I felt quite humbled to see all of the children singing it; that’s why you write songs, that’s why you write music.”

Among the walk participants was Emily Bird.She said it was empowering to be a part of something that honoured someone who was selfless and mindful.”Nobody was political on that day,” she said.”It was purely just about love and respect for Jo.”Cox was heavily involved in charity and community work, co-chaired the Friends of Syria All Party Parliamentary Group, and was a prominent voice for refugee rights.

Video: Di Elson gives some insight into her role as a book judge

Darwin 0800
(ABC Radio Darwin: Mark Rigby) They’d almost started to blur into one another.”Winners to be announced in AugustMs Elson’s marathon reading effort finished last December.”It took me a little bit of time post-Christmas to pick up and read a novel just for sheer pleasure,” she laughed.But her work as a judge was far from over at that point.The scribbled notes, dot points and critical insights she gathered while reading still had to be compiled into a report — one for each book.And although much of that work has now been completed, Ms Elson would not give away any hints as to which books could be announced as winners in August. How many books can you read in a six-month period?Somehow mother of four and full-time worker Di Elson found time to read 117 books in that time last year — and she was never meant to read a single one of them.Ms Elson was one of three people selected by the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) to critique and judge books written for readers aged between seven and 13.Unlike many other CBCA judges, Ms Elson has no formal literary qualifications that make her suitable as a judge.”I’m a slightly unusual judge — that’s probably the best way of describing it,” she laughed.”I’m not a librarian, I’m not a book seller, and I’m not a published author. But I am a parent with four kids who are avid readers.”And I also have a love of reading, so for me it was about the search for good kids literature.”Seven books in one afternoon

Ms Elson said flipping through the pages of 117 books in six months was something of an odyssey, especially as she balanced her family life with the responsibilities of being a judge.”I set up the dining table at home and had a series of chaotic piles which nobody was allowed to move,” she said.”We had a few designated times where I said, ‘I’m sorry, you’re just going to have to fend for yourself because I’m reading’.”She said rather than being sent 117 books in one package, CBCA sent packages of about 30 at a time.”Because we had to turn around each package in a certain time, one Saturday afternoon I sat down and read through seven books.”I was fairly exhausted by the end.

‘It was a massive, massive help’Their mum Michelle Hughes said she was “so proud” that the kids decided to donate their profits.”We were away and we came home thinking we’re going to have to cut our way through our driveway to get to our house but we were lucky enough that they had been and cleared our driveway for us so we could come straight in,” she said.”It was a massive, massive help.”[The kids] just wanted to give back to the community and give back to the SES for helping us when we needed it most, so they wanted to give back to them so they can help others.”In total, the family picked 20 tonnes of pumpkins, but lost over a third of their crop during the cyclone.The family works together to harvest the pumpkins and sells them to local fruit shops, donating the excess to local charities like Meals On Wheels.”[Their dad] Garth does most of the pointing out of which pumpkins are ready to be picked, and then the kids bring them over and I load them into the ute for them,” Mrs Hughes said.”There was a lot of whinging, although a pumpkin itself is not heavy, the repetitive lifting of pumpkins takes its toll on [the kids].”

‘They do really nice things and they don’t get paid’Cynan said picking the pumpkins was hard work but he had help from his best friend, parents, and sister.”I thought it would be nice, they did us a favour so we gave them money back because we thought they wouldn’t like a whole truckload of pumpkins,” he said.”They do really nice things and they don’t get paid.”I had to pick pumpkins and it was really hard work and I got some help from my friend, my best friend who lives next door, it made it go faster and we could have a big long play when we got home.”

The family sells the pumpkins to fruit shops in the area, donating extras to local charities. Two North Queensland siblings have donated the money they earned from farming pumpkins to the SES, to repay the volunteer group for clearing their yard after tropical cyclone Debbie.Nine-year-old Cynan Hughes and his seven-year-old sister Madeline were away with their family when the Category 4 system hit their Proserpine property in March. I’ve liked selling pumpkins and I like sitting in the ute while mum moves it because I do that when it’s not very full.”

Madeline said they would donate more next year and she hoped to expand the farming operation one day.”I do like raspberries and blueberries,” she said.”It was fun. Photo:
Nine-year-old Cynan Hughes recruited his best friend from next door to help him pick the produce. Dreading the clean-up of their 800m-long driveway, the family returned home delighted to discover the SES had already cleared it for them.The children normally spend their earnings on showbags at the Whitsunday Show, but this year decided to donate the $200 to the SES. (ABC Tropical North: Sophie Meixner)
‘They’re a credit to their family’Local controller at the Whitsunday SES Mark Connors said the volunteers had a “lump in [their] throat” after hearing about Cynan and Madeline’s gesture.”We just think anything where the community actually recognises what we’ve done and particularly a couple of young people like that, we just think it’s fantastic, it just gives everyone a smile, I really enjoyed it,” he said.He said the local SES completed in excess of 3,000 jobs in the two-and-a-half-week period following the cyclone.”We’ve had local farmers just walk though the door and drop cartons of beer at our shed, it’s a very nice thank you,” he said.”We’ve had cheques in the mail, just random donations, and of course what the young people from the Hughes family have done, that’s just a great example of that.”It was nice to actually meet them, it really went down well with the guys, they really enjoyed that and put a lump in our throat basically.”They’re a credit to their family.”

Tips to get kids to eat well and into the kitchen

Fast food delivery may come back to bite inexperienced riders

Are you one of a growing number of parents that has come to rely on food delivery services during the busy school term? Nutritionist Anthony Power believes the holidays allow time for parents to change their family’s mindset when it comes to cooking.”As parents we’re always saying, ‘what are we having for dinner’, and the kids think the same thing and associate it with being hard,” he said.”Holidays offer a good time to not see cooking as a hardship or chore, but instead a way to get the ball rolling on healthy eating.”Turn off the television and get the children into the kitchen to start thinking of a couple of recipes everyone can make.”Master these easy recipesMr Power said when you had children in the kitchen it was important to start with the basics — meats and eggs.”We think that everything has to be in a packet or fancy, but using fresh produce is the best way to start,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane’s Rebecca Levingston. (ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe)
“With many recipes you’ll also end up with leftovers to have the next day.”He suggested starting with the following basic recipes:Spaghetti bolognaise: Fry an onion in olive oil, brown the mince and add a tin of tomatoes. Scrambled eggs: Whisk a few eggs with a dash of milk into a hot pan with butter.Frittata: Whisk eggs and pour into a hot pan with mushrooms, cheese and spinach, grill until brown.Sausages: Grill in a hot pan and serve with a fresh garden salad. Roast chicken: Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt before placing in an oven at 180 degrees for two hours.Teens need to eat well tooMr Power said when it came to teenagers, a good way to encourage them to get in the kitchen was to explain the health benefits of eating well.”I tell them about how eating well makes their skin better or their hair shinier,” he said.

Eggs can create a simple and quick meal to make with the children. (ABC Radio Brisbane: Jessica Hinchliffe)
“It’s good to use other things rather than losing weight, like increased energy and oomph.”He said it was important not to forget that children and teenagers were always growing and needed good food to make that happen.”We often think of kids as being OK when they’re young children, but their teeth, liver and their pancreas are still fragile,” Mr Power said.”Too much bad food over a long period of time won’t see them bounce back.”

The Toomelah and Boggabilla Warriors warm up for their Saturday game.
If you had asked me twelve months ago [if this would happen], I was having a lot of sleepless nights because at that stage we never even had a fence on the ground,” he said.”The Minister said to us that now he has been here and had a look at the success of the club both on and off the field, he said he will certainly do what he can to continue to help us improve.”

The current Warriors changeroom is a tarpaulin over cricket nets. The lack of lighting also needs to be addressed, but for the time being the sheds take centre stage as they will enable broader activities to be conducted at the ground.”The facilities are going to make a massive difference going forward. Photo:
Warriors weekend games always draw out the Toomelah and Boggabilla communities. Just last week the community received a massive boost, with the Federal Government announcing they would be given $230,000 to improve the facilities at their beloved Boggabilla Sports Ground.The Warriors were visited by Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion, Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton and Moree Plains council to announce the grant.Club President Peter Rice told ABC News it was a dream come true when he heard the news.”Oh mate it was great. (ABC News: Tom Handcock)
The first order of business will be to upgrade the dressing sheds at the ground. It won’t be just about the footy side of things it will allow other possibilities,” Rice said.”The grounds will be able to be utilised for other sporting and community events, so the facility will be there for a wide range of things and it will only help the further development of the place.”Minister for Indigenous Affairs Nigel Scullion said the upgrades would help build cohesion and promote wellbeing in the community.”This funding will greatly improve this facility, enabling Boggabilla residents to fully utilise the oval as a social and community hub,” he said. Currently the away team are given a shipping container to prepare in, while the Warriors throw a tarp over an old set of cricket nets.Although they are far from five-star facilities, Rice says the emotional attachment could make it difficult to persuade the players to use the upgraded rooms.”The boys are over the moon but some of them are a little sad. There’s a bit of buzz around their current sheds and that will take a bit to replace,” he said.”It might be a bit of a struggle to get them out of where they are, up into the new ones, so we will just have to wait and see.”

How rugby brought an outback community together The Macintyre Warriors have done more than win games in their first year of competition, they have given their outback community a sense of pride and identity that extends beyond the football ground. (ABC News: Tom Hancock)
The introduction of the Warriors has been a catalyst for change for the towns of Boggabilla and Toomelah, instilling a sense of pride and identity into the communities.The club has brought a lot of people together to work towards a common cause, with locals saying they have noticed a decline in anti-social behaviour such as domestic and lateral violence, drug and alcohol abuse and criminal activity.It is clear to see that in these communities, rugby league is a lot more than just a game. The Macintyre Warriors Rugby League club from Boggabilla are continuing to win both on and off the field.

Community woodworking gives pride and belonging

It is that sense of camaraderie which instantly appealed to semi-retired Rick Vickers who has been part of the guild for the last five years, despite his self-confessed “fairly basic” wood working skills.”My wife bought me a Christmas present which was a membership and said ‘you’d better use this one’ and I’ve been loving it ever since,” Mr Vickers said.”There are guys here who are willing and able to pass on a lifetime of skills to people like me who are newbies.”Mr Vickers, who at 66 is one of the club’s youngest members, said he was proud of all he has created, given that his last foray into woodworking was at school.”Every member of my family now have a bowl, nearly every member or relative has a cheese board or a cutting board and they love it,” he laughed.”I’m learning how to do blanket boxes with the dove-tailing so, my daughter who has everything in the world, I gave her a blanket box for her 21st birthday.”You could go buy one, but this was made by dad with all its blemishes in it.”

The 190 members work out of a large shed at Montville in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, with every woodworking tool imaginable.Mr Borthwick said the group uses trees donated from all over the country which are then milled on site, another skill for members to learn.”We get trees donated to us by different people. (ABC Sunshine Coast: Rob Blackmore)
The nearly 200 members come from all walks of life and include optometrists, radio engineers, surgeons and one submariner, Don Meredith.Mr Meredith, a former Navy engineer of 22 years, found the guild after he retired to the Glasshouse Mountains.”Although I’d never made things out of timber, as far as machinery goes there’s very few manufacturing machines that I haven’t operated at some time,” he said.”But I get out of the way when anything goes wrong.”

Members of the group take great comfort from helping each other and sharing knowledge. I’ve made something now for my daughter, my niece ..’ and you can’t buy that sort of stuff.”

Hamish Borthwick walks past where the wood is stored and categorised. It’s easy for them to put it on a truck and bring it here instead of trying to make chips out of it and put it through the chipper,” he said.”We air dry the wood for about six months and then it all goes into the kiln and gets finished and then we sell that to the members and that’s how we make our money to survive.” As one of the Sunshine Coast’s longest running woodworking groups enters its 21st year, one member says it is overwhelming to see the impact the group has on the community and its members’ sense of belonging.The Blackall Range Woodcrafters Guild began in 1996 with 12 members and now boasts 190, including 30 women.The group donates 1,000 wooden toys annually to the Salvation Army, and many of those are made throughout the year on the allocated toy-making day — Wednesday.

The members share their knowledge with others in the group. I know I’ve had a bit of depression over the last 21 years and thank God, I’ve got over it,” he said.He said at times, when the shed was in full force, it resembled a busy train station because there was always something happening and someone to watch.”You see so many different characters go past and morning tea is no slim event I can tell you, because if you haven’t got your wits about you, you get slammed,” Mr Borthwick laughed. (ABC Sunshine Coast: Rob Blackmore)
But Mr Borthwick said the benefit of small community groups like this one went beyond the items which were physically produced.”We’ve got a lot of Vietnam vets, we’ve got people who’ve come in with depression… (ABC Sunshine Coast: Kylie Bartholomew)
Away from the guild, Mr Vickers works as a risk and safety consultant where his mind is immersed in policies, procedures and planning that may take years to bring to fruition.”The things I do are cerebral and it takes ages, years sometimes, to get that culture across of what you need to be done,” he said.”However, here you can do something in four hours and you go ‘You know what?

Making toys for the children gives the group a great sense of achievement and pride. (ABC Sunshine Coast: Rob Blackmore)
Founding member Hamish Borthwick said it was extremely gratifying making the toys, but the group also takes pride in helping other parts of the community.When they recently became aware of a need for wheelchair trays, solitaire sets and puzzles at one of the local hospitals, they got to work.”Our pleasure was seeing these adult girls almost in tears,” Mr Borthwick said, choking back tears.”From the pride of receiving, the want of receiving …

I nearly lose my grip, but you held on to me

Ayy, oh, I am, ayy, oh, I am

And I crash the whip
And wipe my wounds clean
Ayy, oh, I am, ayy, oh, I am
I got lost astray
Yeah, how did they find me, find me?
And as far as runnin’ away
I’m still heavy breathin’
Ayy, oh, I am, ayy, oh, I am

My heart’s thumpin’, drummin’
And your strength runs through me
I swear they smell the blood on me
Somethin’ perfect deep beneath
I wake up and the sky is blood red
Felt so much more than dreamin’

There’s sweat on my hand
I hear them coming for me
I swear they smell the blood on me
I’m on this road now
Grey hoodie, they cover their heads

No need, no need to take from me
I hear them coming for me
Arms out, you pull me
I swear they smell the blood on me
Ayy, oh, I am, ayy, oh, I am
I can’t see their faces
What I need to, need to get away
[Bridge]
They see me, and not nearly
I get up, they’re at the edge of my bed
They’re near me
Ayy, oh, I am, ayy, oh, I am
And assured me, and tell me that I’m okay, but
I hear them coming for me, for me, yeah
I swear they smell the blood on me
Don’t throw the paint on me
I still puff, I’m on the edge now
I swear they smell the blood on me
I hear them coming for me, for me
[Verse 1: Sampha]
[Chorus]
And I’d send away, and I’d send away
Somethin’ screamin’ in me
I see this light formin’
I’m so alone now, swervin’ out of control now
I hear them coming for me
[Chorus]

I can’t see, see, see, see, see

Dan Caplen – Flat Champagne (feat. Ray Blk)

[Chorus: Dan Caplen]
You know that ghosts favor the brave
Cause you and me go through it like the others
[Chorus: Dan Caplen]
And feel one and living by the numbers
Flat champagne
Acting all naïve like good things come for free
Cause we turn winters into summers
Cause you and me go through it like the others
Cause you and me go through it like the others
Cause you and me go through it like the others
We always find a way to land back on our feet
And the highs still feel the same
Flat champagne

Flat champagne
[Verse 1: Dan Caplen]
Up late, most days, living off the night before
And the highs still feel the same
Cause we turn winters into summers
And feel one and living by the numbers
Flat champagne
Just drink up, don’t stop living like we do
Like the city’s gonna make us into what we wanna be
Flat champagne
[Chorus: Dan Caplen]
Flat champagne
Flat champagne
[Bridge: Dan Caplen]
Cause we turn winters into summers
Cause we turn winters into summers
And we still get drunk off flat champagne
I know, I know we’ll find a way
Flat champagne
And we still get drunk off flat champagne

And we still get drunk off flat champagne
And we still get drunk off flat champagne
And feel one and living by the numbers
We always seem to find a way
[Verse 2: Ray BLK]

And the highs still feel the same
Flat champagne
And feel one and living by the numbers
Cause the city’s gonna make us into what we wanna be
Flat champagne
The boss calls, ignore, don’t worry ’bout it
And the highs still feel the same
The rent’s late, always, but we don’t talk about it
And don’t look back on yesterday
Flat champagne
Flat champagne

Trapo – Break From Me

Graduation to lose, channel two
Wanna be optimistic
Ain’t shit promised for a nigga but our spirit
A blunt and a nap
A new statistic
‘Least nobody yet
On the road in Ohio, I had a meeting today

In need of a woman
Waiting hours, still hear it
I sent you back on the way
[Chorus]
The one with the nice boobs and all, I’ll wait
Stomach growling, still hear it
Let this liquor replenish your spirit
But the dead, poor, in jail cloud the vision for a nigga
The other day homie say ain’t mean to stop you
But who that girl you would talk to in high school
A new nigga on the street
Swear this ride
Wonder if this is right, wonder, I pause

Like for a moment, our skin tone make us special

I should try and uplift you
Was waitin’ for something
Ain’t shit promised but my mama in the kitchen for a minute
Vacation or something
You should fear and take a break from me
Ain’t so bad at all
Been spent all my cash
We pray for better days, wedding rings, and finer things
Right, right (right)
[Verse 1]
Looking fused in office, stayin’ confused and all
Ain’t workin’ for no one
Which nigga are you?

[Chorus]
Which nigga are you?
Taking showers, still hear it
Another dream gone bad
Great for me
‘Stead of birthing my opposition
Another song song sad
Vacation or something
Wanted to be romantic
Away from me I said, I need a smoke to clear my head
Sweats or designer jeans?

‘Least nobody yet
Break from me
Couple hours have passed, a couple days are done
Break from me (was waitin’ for you, you)
Vacation or something
I think you need a
[Verse 2]
Right
[Outro]
Swisher wraps and booze, more ways to move, yeah
No diss is getting to me, no diss is getting to me
Hopeless and confused, education abused

Was waitin’ for you
A blunt and a nap
Ready to throw a punch, I wonder if it would land
Right
Ain’t shit promised but vagina and a sentence for a nigga
Ain’t workin’ for no one
Ain’t workin’ for no one
Funny how this time you’re the one that’s throwin’ the tantrum
Who tell me the truth
Raffle
How do I make you better?

I remain jubilant
Break from me (right, right)
[Chorus]
Been spent all my cash
My daughter just got a job, so eat a dick ’cause she’s fine

Is foreplay the move today?
Right
Slam the door in Ohio, I get a text from her mom
[Intro]

Dave East – No Back And Forth

At Summer Jam, I told Tee Grizz he had a hit
Smoking roaches til’ im yawning off
Food stamps WIC checks, and no dental plan (Ghetto)
I come from roaches crawling
We bagged the raw, used to let it dry with the ceiling fan
Straight to the point, told her I got somethin’ she could sit on
We wasn’t supposed to win
Hand in hand they watching from the roof, drop it in a can
That money had me thirsty, shit I need somthin’ to sip on
Be carefull aproaching men
[Verse 1]
Package is Saran wrapped, duct tape, paper fill my pants
He till got the kosher (still)
Get love out in Detroit like I’m a piston, your bitch’ gone
Waiting for NAS to drop, paranoia in the holster (strapped)
Roaches on the walls and roaches in the hall
Recollections on weapons I never purchased
He told me ain’t it a blessing, we really came up from shit
We was ‘posed to post in the pen
44:4 shoutout to Hova (Hov)

Tabby – Buckwheat (White Trash Album)

These squares Cheeze-Nips, two W’s, one E involved
His finger reach projectile. The peace: never keep it down
Slay billboards like dragon
So why not pop doze pills
Keep up with debt like I’m Usain with two missing legs
Force of Katrina mixed with Luke, but he lost his head
UH!

Just more sperm B-day celebration.
Sundays in pews. Sit!
Stir another one; Khalid tolerance. Vomit, ill
Lost count like ya’ll without the shrill
Dial tones when calling for God’s guidance
Screaming "Sharkeisha!" beating dead steed that Tabby’s depressed
Chains the new nooses

Blurred vision when liquor hitting my tonsils, chill
Tabby step up to ring come-up fucks from the semen towel
My balls hang like Goku’s did
Sobered up by the wafers
Best darkness like cops who kill
Depression set in, sure, but jotting thoughts with skill
Tick from the metronome. Bitch, drop the quill
In the womb, soaked in pen ink for 9 months, dammit
Shadows fit like wet wool, style owned ain’t Rabbit’s 8-mile, dammit
Ick! Savior’s blood made him puke.
Hoping Zorro will strike the sheep hopping, still
Fag to my face while pads kept in Dolces
Pile up with who’s hurt me down my road
Newcastle cap to basket passed
Anxious from Mary, but Peter keep on unleashing webs
Type quotes behind mom burping me; I’m cold, dammit
[Verse]
Minnesotan shirtless with slurpee, while snow
Feeling dapper though hollow, dammit
It’s certain my flow alerting foes like I chirped their Nextel
He forcing the demons out, believe he bulimic now?
I’m too sick to go play out-
Who ran a red at the exit
As Doom coughing ’till mask drop
Mouths spitting sorbet-sweet sixteens
Tabby has created this project to act as a window into his mind, you see. If you can’t find anything positive to take away from this experience, well, probably because you a lil’ bitch. So you, the listener, can gather an understanding of how he became who he is today. Hahahah! Do whatever your ass gotta do, bruh, and enjoy the rest of the project Now sit back, grab a cold one, roll up if you need to. He hopes you can relate to his openness while finding his witty imagery both humorous and thought-provoking. Now that is how you start a motherfuckin’ mixtape. Welcome to White Trash.
Side not with the fake. Spouting
Whips bump same abuse that
Don’t pick up like I don’t with my folks. I’m sorry
[Outro: BIGQUINT]
