EMERGENCY service workers, police, residents, community groups and students said no to domestic violence during the White Ribbon Day convoy through the Campbelltown and Macquarie Fields regions on Friday.

A convoy of 10 vehicles carrying Campbelltown police, State Emergency Service members, Campbelltown Council staff as well as Burnside, Family and Community Services and Centrelink workers travelled from AB Central in Airds, to Campbelltown TAFE and Macarthur Square to spread the anti-violence message.

A similar convoy carrying groups including Macquarie Fields police travelled from Glenquarie Town Centre and visited Minto Marketplace and Eagle Vale Marketplace.

The two convoys met at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in a show of support before men took the White Ribbon Day oath to say no to violence against women.

Attendees also took part in a tug of war to build comraderie.

Campbelltown police domestic violence officer Sen-Constable Carolynn Walters said the day was excellent and a great opportunity to raise awareness that there is no place in the community for domestic violence and violence against women.

Elise Marie CARTER nee Elise MONJO, Elise CARTER, Grommy. Raising awareness and showing their support during the White Ribbon Day convoy are Senior Constables Elise Carter and Dennis Hoyne with community members at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

“Everyone came together on the day for this very important issue,’’ she said.

“When we were driving around there were always people there supporting us on the route.’’

Now in its third year, the convoy aims to foster community cohesion, trust and respect for all participants.

Frederick Keith WHITTON, Fred WHITTON
From Stephen Reeves 20 April 2021 The funeral of Bulls Life Member, Player and Coach Sgt 2nd Class Fred Whitton was very well attended this morning. Family, friends, colleagues and Macarthur Bulls gathered at the Chapel. Such was the large crowd many had to sit outside as all paid their respects to Mrs Joyce Whitton and their daughter Robyn. Mourners travelled from far and wide to be there. Fred enjoyed a good life. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who worked hard within the community as a dedicated Police Officer. Local Police formed a guard of honour as his family entered the Chapel. I was given the privilege to say a few words on behalf of Freds Colleagues and the Macarthur Bulls. I read from a letter written by Bulls Life Member Alan Stephens who was unable to attend due to a severe chest infection. I also spoke about Fred’s positive influence on many young officers who worked under his supervision. I recorded the names of those who could not make it to the ceremony. Afterwards we met at Freds former watering hole for refreshments and a bite to eat. I am sure stories about the life and times of Frederick Keith Whitton will ring out late into the night. RIP our brother.

Thank you Rod Sheraton for passing on my message. As you know I have been chatting with Freds wife Joyce.
Fred won the Best and Fairest with the Bulls in the early years.
Sadly both of his sons Warwick and Perry passed away many years ago.
His daughter Robyn has been a rock in their family.
Fred joined the Cops as a Mounted Police Officer at the Redfern Academy before being transferred to GDs at 22 Division, settling in at Green Valley.
He was a keen fisherman and loved taking mates outside on his boat.
I remember in the 70s we went fishing down south. We saw a buoy and I pulled up a trap that felt like it was full of cement. I finally got it on board and it contained the biggest lobster known to man.
We made a deal that he would have Joyce cook it and we would share the bounty.
Not long after this we went to Fred’s for Robyns 21st birthday. I asked about the lobster he said he would go inside and get it.
I was looking forward to a good feed.
Well he came back with the bleached shell!! and said it was the best lobster he had ever eaten.
At least I had the chance to see its red shell.
Yes it was a great 21st with all the Valley boys present. We drank the place dry.
I think I played a game with Fred in 1972. Tough man.
Plenty of good times with Fred and the boys at the Valley when there were 7 of us stationed there just across from the Valley Pub..
God bless you mate.
RIP.
Wok.

Graeme, it was great working with you at Dubbo, in my role as the communications technical officer. The big search around Goodooga comes to mind. It heightened my existing respect for you, your decision making, your concern for the welfare of other police in the search and especially your devilish sense of humour. RIP, mate.

‘No reason’ for shooting mother

SYDNEY, Thursday. — Central Criminal Court was told today that a youth had killed his mother by shooting her through the back of her head for no apparent reason.

Robert George McAlister, 17, of Blowering Road, Tumut, pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter. The Crown accepted the plea to the lesser charge.

Detective Sergeant G. C. Rooskov, of Tumut, said McAlister had gone to the Tumut Police Station at 1pm on August 7 last year and said he had shot his mother. Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister, then 16, had shown no emotion while telling his story.

McAlister had said that after he had dug up a rabbit burrow, his mother had told him to return the spade to his aunt. As she was walking away he had shot her through the head.

Sergeant Rooskov said McAlister was a member of the Young Anglicans Fellowship, a member of a tight-knit and happy family, and an average student.

Mr Justice O’Brien remanded McAlister for sentence.

Graeme was a thoroughly decent human being and a friend to all that knew him.
On the day before his passing, he held the esteemed and usual job of being Father Christmas, at our retired police end of year party in Hervey Bay.
As it happened, we had a bit of time up our sleeve before lunch, so he was asked to give a talk on his career and family.
It was one that he spoke fondly of, and justifiably proud of. The next day he sadly passed.
RIP Graeme.

It’s with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Marty Hogan. As you all know Marty was battling cancer for the past few years. He passed away on Saturday 10th April with his family by his side.
Marty was a great long term student & a Hapkido black belt. A wonderful close friend to Master King & Mrs Shantal. He developed many close friendships to those he trained alongside. He was also a strong inspiration to many.
We know our whole KMA community will be just as heartbroken to hear this news.
Our deepest condolences to his wife Jane, daughter Maya and their family & friends.

(20+) KMA Brisbane – Posts | Facebook


 

We are raising funds to assist our friend, colleague, husband, father, teacher, police officer and all round top bloke, Marty Hogan.  He and his family are battling an aggressive form of Cancer and Marty has entered the fight of his life.

In December 2019, after returning from a hiking holiday Marty was fatigued, sleeping up to 15 hours each day. Incessant coughing repeatedly caused him to vomit and fight for his next breath. He started losing weight – fast.   Days later, the family sat together in the Gold Coast University Hospital, devastated from the shock diagnosis: Marty had Stage four Metastatic Bowel Cancer which had spread extensively to his liver.

Marty’s decline was rapid. He commenced chemotherapy immediately. His wife Jane and daughter Maya (14) stayed by his side providing love, encouragement and support as he fights the battle of a lifetime.

Their story

Marty and Jane met 2010. It was a wonder their relationship ever survived. On their first romantic getaway for a weekend up in the mountains, Marty wooed Jane with a first course of oysters. One hour later, inside their cabin (with very thin walls) Marty and Jane succumbed to the disastrous biological effects of rotten oysters. Marty thought they would never survive the undignified encounter but for Jane, she had found her soul-mate. Marty was unlike anyone she had every known – protective, determined, open, honest and a bit of a clown, she couldn’t help but fall for him.

Marty’s passion in sport is Hapkido, a Korean martial art with emphasis on self-defence. Marty trains and assists junior students, he holds a provisional black belt and Maya proudly trains alongside him with a red tip belt. Jane is the newest member of the Hapkido family, working towards a blue belt.  At the end of each week, Marty usually enjoys the solace of a few beers while strumming his ukulele, listening to country music or hitting the local karaoke bar (much to Maya’s dismay). He is a man of integrity who holds his friends and family close to his heart.

Marty is a Sergeant in the Queensland Police. He has worked in many roles within the service and has dedicated his life to serving and protecting. Now Marty finds himself in uncertain times, vulnerable and requiring reciprocation of the public’s assistance. Marty is a proud man who does not readily seek nor ask for help. His love and unconditional commitment to Jane and Maya is inspirational and like most cops, he is always the first in line when needed.

Your assistance with escalating expenses for medical treatment, household and financial commitments will give them the gift of time and the ability to walk this journey together. Please donate to this heartbreaking situation; any donation no matter how small will be truly appreciated.

Any money kindly donated on this page will go directly to Marty, supporting him where it is needed most. If you are not in a position to be able to contribute, please share this link.

Marty has had a 2 month break from chemo after some nasty side effects that landed him in hospital in early August.
The break was wonderful and we had a little family holiday in September while he was looking and feeling so much better.
However yesterday we found out his cancer has progressed with new lesions in his liver and he is restarting Chemo today.
A blow to his great progress to date, we are sad but ok and preparing for the next fight.

Thank You

Aided by your incredible generosity we have achieved our goal to raise funds for modifications to our home to overcome the barrier of stairs. After a lengthy covid interruption in planning, we are now able to follow up on the valued advice and quotes to ensure the best solution for Marty.

Marty is now also focused on finalising tasks around our family home to ease the burden down the track. He has recently arranged for installation of security cameras and is now planning to have our house painted.

Marty continues to have chemotherapy and is fortunately tolerating the treatment well for now. We have just enjoyed some precious time with Maya during the school holidays. Treasured time with family and friends during the winter break have left us in good spirits.

We are so overwhelmed by your kindness and support, we can not thank you enough nor convey the impact it has had on our family. You have given us time together and made life a little simpler. We have received a wave of love we were not expecting nor felt we deserved.
Thank you.

We will continue to maintain the GoFunfMe page so we can stay in contact and keep you updated on Marty’s journey.

WEATHERING THE STORMS OF LIFE
Life happens, not just for me but for all of us. When the storm has passed, put your energy into rebuilding your life, don’t waste time looking back.

Megan Here …
It is with much sadness and disbelief I need to let our family and friends know that Craig took his life last night.
He has fought so many Demons and suffered immense mental anguish for so many years. The nightmares, the flashbacks, the anxiety and the depression were exhausting and debilitating and he needed peace.
He decided it was time to check out of this life and while we are heart broken we understand and we wish things were different but unfortunately there is a complete lack of support for our first responders especially after their careers have ended.
He was tired and as much as he loved us he decided it was time to end the pain and finally be at peace.

Condolences to Mel, family and friends.

 

 


 

Bryson, by all read accounts, was a lovely bloke and well respected Policeman with a great sense of humour.

He completed the Anacapa Sciences Intelligence Course and was then selected into the State Criminal Intelligence Section and was one of those chosen to initiate and conduct Patrol Intelligence Courses at Goulburn academy.
