Thank You: to the Cornerstone Community who are always ready to help out in around town, helping at the community garden & Australia Day celebrations, and the Canowindra Public School & P&C thank them so much for helping at their weeding working bee recently. Graffiti: if you know who has been spraying white paint on roads & walls around town, please advise the police on 131 444. The perpetrator to have very sketchy ideas of anatomy. Graffiti is a significant issue within many local government areas reducing the value and image of our community. Facebook: used for good, not malicious intent! Canobolas LAC is one of the newest addition to NSW Police's Eyewatch social media project: For a safe and secure NSW. Police encourage contributions, but please do NOT report crime on the page: contact 000 for emergencies; 6344 1300 for our local station if an officer is required for a non emergency situation; or 131 444 for the police assistance line to report. AGM: Canowindra Preschool will be holding their Annual General Meeting Tuesday 21 February, 2012 starting at 6.30pm sharp, at the Preschool. All interested parties are welcome to attend. Aussie Day Cricket: apologies for not running it this week as noted in last week's Phoenix. Again the amount of news and ads has been amazing, but there was quite a bit about the cricket in the other paper, so you can't be too disappointed. Thanks for your patience.

RELAX AND REJUVENATE YOURSELF Since opening in February 2010, Falls - Hair Beauty Spa has become a local haven of glamour and style. In May that same year, Falls took out the esteemed Best Business in Cabonne trophy in the 2010 Cabonne Daroo Business Awards, a testament to the hard work invested by previous owners Peter Kennedy and Jackie Cramp. Kerby Lawrence took over the business, early in December 2011 and is committed to adding to the quality services and products that Falls customers have come to appreciate. This February is a special month for the Falls team, as it sees Brittany Rue become a fully qualified hairdresser; and Hayley Slattery completes her second year apprenticeship, which she started at the beginning of the Falls Hair Beauty Spa story. The relaxed rural setting combines seamlessly with the state of the art Day Spa, comprising a hairdressing salon, beauty therapy rooms, sauna, the Spa Oceana unit, Mystic Spray tanning booth, pedicure massage chair, complementary fresh coffee and homemade slice. A vast range of hydrotherapy treatments are available with the Spa Oceana, each providing its own benefits ranging from weight loss to detoxification to stress reduction.

MEDITATION COURSES Karma Yiwong Samten Ling (meaning place of natural beautiful meditation) is a newly established meditation retreat centre in the Cabonne Shire. Situated at 1064 Sandy Creek Road Molong, between Cudal, Manildra and Molong, only 30 minutes from Orange it is located in a peaceful bushland setting. The Centre offers classes in meditation and on the Buddhas teachings based on compassion and wisdom. These traditional techniques for controlling the mind date back over 2,500 years are still very relevant in todays high stress, fast paced times. Karma Yiwong Samten Ling is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on donations for its ongoing operations. A suggested donation for participation is requested however if money is an issue just give what you can. Contact Rosie on 02 6366 8376 or for enquiries and bookings. The following events are coming up: Sunday 12 February: A day of teachings on the 7 points of mind training with Norbert Bohler*- Here is an example of the teachings: Give all the victory to other, Take all the blame unto yourself. This intriguing verse is the essence of mind transformation practice. At first glance, this verse is a radical concept, even an insult to our habitual self-centred attitude. Yet, according to Buddhist teachings this selfcenteredness is precisely the cause of all woes. The set of proverbs that form the root text of the mind training practice are designed as a set of antidotes to undesired mental habits that cause suffering. These teachings are very practical and deal with any situation that one can encounter in daily life. * Norbert Bohler has been a practising Buddhist for
over 30 years and received teachings from many highly qualified teachers. He has recently completed a 3 year meditation retreat.

Wednesday 8 February: 6 week meditation course. Meditation can lead to well-being, happiness and peace of mind. 1 hour classes suited for beginners and experienced alike. Sunday 26 February, 25 March & 29 April: Last Sunday in Month Retreat Day. A practice day including sitting and walking meditation in the morning with another hour of practice after lunch before doing chanting / visualisation practice on compassion: Chenrezig.

HORSE RIDING LESSONS FOR EVERYONE From humble beginnings as Shandonn Horses, to success and proud achievements over the last 17 years, Ruby Hill Equine Centre instructors are responsible, experienced, successful and caring riders; the horses are educated and well looked after; and you will be too! Donna Ind, owner and senior instructor of Ruby Hill EC has strong ties to Canowindra, being the granddaughter of Dick and Dot Marsh, and a previous member of Canowindra Pony Club. Donna has now been teaching horse riding for over 17 years, breeding, training and riding for 38 years. Ruby Hill EC caters to all ages and skills, especially nervous riders who may have previously had less than enjoyable experiences but are still wanting to experience riding for pleasure. Safety is our priority in all areas of your experience with us, so feel assured no measure is too great to make you feel comfortable. Canowindra is lucky to host Donna and her fully qualified instructors for an horse riding lesson day at Diana and Stewart Frost's at Quarry Road Moorbel, on Sunday 12 February. Lessons at 11am or 12.30pm are of one hour duration on schooled horses for around $50, with optional lessons on your own horse from 2pm for around $20, prices will be confirmed depending on numbers. The day will be a casual affair with focus on establishing communication skills and comfort between rider and horse. All riders should try to wear looser fitting long pants and long sleeved shirts of non-abrasive material. Ruby Hill instructors will guide you at all times, and are passionate about the education of riders and the training of horses, believing in giving the horses the best opportunity to be the best they can, and to achieve this, we must be able to communicate effectively with them.

HALF PRICE MICROCHIP/VACCINATION OFFER Dog and cat owners in Cabonne Shire will be able to have their pets microchipped and vaccinated later this month for half the normal price. Cabonne Council has combined with the Molong Veterinary Clinic and the Canowindra branch of the Cowra Veterinary Centre to offer the special $55 deal to both microchip and vaccinate an animal. If a pet is already vaccinated and the owner wishes to have it microchipped, the cost will be only $25. The service will be at 42 Gaskill Street Canowindra on Monday 20 February from 2.30-4pm and at 89 Bank Street Molong on Wednesday 22 February from 9.30-11.30am. Cabonne Mayor Bob Dowling said he was excited that the two veterinary clinics had joined the Council to encourage pet owners to have their animals microchipped. You are required by law to register your dog or cat when it is over six months old, so this is a great opportunity not only to help safeguard your pet, but to ensure you are not breaking the law, Cr Dowling said. Bookings will be essential, so I urge pet owners to get in early to book their places. Free microchip scans will also be available if pet owners want to ensure old microchips are still in working order. The special offer is for residents of Cabonne Shire only, however there will be no limit on the number of dogs or cats an owner can have micochipped or vaccinated on the day. Owners will have to book a time slot for each animal to be treated. Pet owners must produce a current vaccination certificate to take advantage of the $25 microchipping only offer. All dogs and cats must on a leash or in a cage. Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting Cabonne Council on 02 6392 3247.

Canowindra Cricket Club had an impressive comeback last Saturday with a 5 wicket win over Bowling Club. Canowindra won the toss and went in bowling. At 10 overs Bowling Club were 0/66 and N Traves picked up the first wicket at 86. Opening bowler B Traves was bowling well and picked Blair Holgate for 60. Peter Guthrie came into the attack and picked up the next wicket before good work in the outfield by R Toole produced shortly after. Alex Myers and Peter bowled well together and pressure was building on the batsmen to score quickly. Myers picked up two wickets before Guthrie picked up another two and with two runouts, another to Toole and an impressive direct hit from N Traves, meant that the Bowling Club innings ended at 181. Although an imposing total it was a great effort in the field by the boys considering Bowling Club were 0/85 in only the twelfth over. P Guthrie led the bowlers with 3/36 from 10 overs while Myers (2/19 from 6), N Traves (1/38) and B Traves (1/41) were the other wicket takers. Canowindras run chase didn't start well with Jacob Devlin out for 1 in only the second over. Toole then joined B Traves and together they lifted the run rate until Traves fell for 19 after a 52 run partnership. P Guthrie joined Toole and both boys scored quickly. At 20 overs Canowindra was 2/82, needing 99 runs from the last 20 overs with Toole and Guthrie at the crease. Toole soon brought up his first senior half century in quick time and it was good to see Toole score big after showing good form and getting starts all season. He was out soon after for 55, and Nick Guthrie joined his brother Pete at the crease. The boys lifted the runrate before Nick was out for 15 and Shaun Craven came in with 29 runs to win. Pete soon brought up his 50 but was out with an impressive 65, included five 4s and one 6. Canowindra needed 5 to win when Harry Whatman came on who hit a four to bring victory for the Canowindra boys as he finished on 4 not out and Craven finished on 9 runs. The highlight of this innings was the 68 run partnership between P Guthrie and Rohan Toole. Next week the boys have the bye before playing their last three games.
