Wimpy's Wise Words

PRESIDENTS ROUND UP      4th September
I would like to congratulate Julieanne for taking on the Chair of the meeting last week and a very good job at that, considering it was her first.
I only have a few things to report on this week, mainly what our Club has spent some of our finances on. Last year we were attempting to help in the Solomon Island, but this was placed on the shelf. Since then, we have had correspondence asking to help a student Daisy, out with her school fees ($575) and this was passed at our last Board meeting.
Also, the Murray Bridge High music bursary ($1000) was approved by the Board. This year the sum total will be given to One student after they have sat on an interview panel comprising of members Rotary and music teacher from the school.
We have also decided to donate a Shelter Box ($10000) to the Pakistan disaster.
Some of you may be aware that Rotary is celebrating 100 years in South Australia next year and I am positive you will be hearing more about what we as a club could possibly be involved with.
To Malcom, all the best in your recovery.
See you Tuesday night for our own Rogers presentation.


Good Morning Jack, 
Thank you for raising your question on notice regarding Councils position on SGARS at my presentation to the Rotary Meeting on 19 July 2022.
As you will be aware, SGARS are readily available to anyone in Australia. 
The SGARS products are only available for professional use in the USA, Canada and Europe. In Australia SGAR’s can be purchased by anyone from hardware stores and supermarkets and the purchaser can use them however they please, with no training on where, when and how to use them safely and effectively. As the SGAR’s are so effective at controlling rodents, they tend to be peoples first and only choice of control.
In relation to Councils position, Council employs Pest Control professionals to carry out rodent control on their sites. Pest Control professionals will carry out an integrated pest management plan, utilising a variety of control methods including, exclusion, trapping and baiting. Councils Pest Control professionals are required to apply SGAR’s as stated on the label, which requires they be placed in tamper proof bait stations to prevent non-target species from accessing the bait. 
We understand there is currently a review underway, which is considering placing restrictions on the use and availability of these products in Australia. This review will be completed in 2025, and any changes will be communicated then.
Michael Sedgman
Thank you Michael for your response to my question about Council’s position with regard to the use of Second Generation Rodenticides. Because I am asking our Rotary Club to put your response and my reply in our Club Bulletin, and because I am asking Ros to forward this email to all your Councilors, primarily for their edification, I will briefly outline the background for my question to you.
Rat and mice poisons ie Ratsack and the like have always had the issue of poisoning birds of prey as a by-catch because the poison takes about 3 to 5 days to kill vermin and towards the end of their life the poisoned vermin wander anywhere, often in the open where birds of prey spot them and are an easy kill whereupon the birds become poisoned when eating the poisoned body. With the advent of the new age poisons this has also meant that the birds are also being killed with greater efficiency.
As a result of advocacy from Birds Australia and others, there is as you point out, a review of the use of these SGARs in Australia, following on from the ban of the use of these toxins in many countries around the world. Indeed it is my understanding that many Councils in Australia have pre-empted that aforementioned enquiry by taking some action on the open use of SGARs in their Council areas.
Hence my question to you when you came to our Club some weeks ago.
I might add that while keeping these toxins in tamper proof bait stations, that does not stop the little critters taking their toxic bodies out of the station to be consumed and poisoned, by birds of prey.
I would encourage Council to take a proactive stand in this matter, do a little research on the issue, and do what it can to protect our Australian bird life.
Yours Faithfully
Jack Reddin

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
