TAURUS: Until August 9 you will be immersed in daily routines, communications and travelling. You should watch your temper, for it could cause you excessive trouble, either as a result of disagreements, car problems or physical injury that manifests as cuts to the hands and digits, or lung problems. Direct the energy towards positive planning, and action to minimise difficulties.

GEMINI: Between now and August 9 your earning capacity will increase, mainly because of extra effort on your part, but also aided by additional income from an irregular source. There is a propensity towards the acquirement of possessions that could see your bank balance deplete in direct proportion to the accumulation of goods.

CANCER: During the next six weeks, initiative is a key factor in determining success, earning recognition from employers and business associates. Excessive enthusiasm and aggression may put others off side, so direct your energies wisely. Children of Cancerian parents should also be successful under this cycle. Trends are activated on July 7-10, July 14-17, 24-27, August 5-8.

LEO: The coming six weeks may be a frustrating time, regarding legal issues, communication, academic matters and professional advice. Allow situations to develop at a natural pace. It may very well be that your timing or perception of a situation is poor, or you need time to reflect on matters and work through them yourself.

VIRGO: The active pursuit of your ambitions and increased social commitments will demand much of your time and energy until August 9. This is also a financially fortunate period for you, though your friends and associates may suffer in some way. Perhaps over-zealousness on your part may contribute to these aggravations.

LIBRA: Partnerships, career and personal relationships will be the focus of your drive for success in the next six weeks. Feelings run high so you must be tactful in handling any situation, especially on July 14-17, 24-27. It is integral to your success that you learn to work in with others during this time. Positive developments around income are indicated.

SCORPIO: There may be the need for long distance travel or professional advice in connection with work or a health matter between now and August 9. It is important that responsibilities are met if difficulties are to be avoided. Students of welfare and health subjects should do well during this period, with special emphasis on July 7-10, August 5-8.

SAGITTARIUS: Your financial situation is helped along by fortunate breaks in the next six weeks. Loans, taxation, insurance and superannuation matters are favourably emphasised on July 7-10, August 5-8. However, younger members of the family may cause some concern, and you will not find it an easy matter to resolve those problems.

CAPRICORN: Relationships may not be easy during the next six weeks, as others are generally more aggressive, especially people whom you consider to be friends. Family members could also be in a similar frame of mind, so you need to use all your talents to deal with these situations tactfully. Trends are active on July 7-10, July 14-17, 24-27, August 5-8

AQUARIUS: Between now and August 9, work related concerns and health issues will demand more of your energy. Associated friction could develop at work, impacting on your health. It is important to pace yourself and not allow stress to undermine your position, as you would be rendering yourself vulnerable to accidents, inflammations, cuts and abrasions.

PISCES: You will be spending more of your time and money on children, a loved one, recreational interest or sporting activities between now and August 9.There is a tendency to choose locations at a distance for vacations during this period. Speculative interest should generally return good results. Best days are July 7-10, August 5-8.

LUCKY NUMBERS: Aries: 1, 3, 4, 9; Taurus: 5, 8; Gemini: 6, 7; Cancer: 3, 4, 7, 9; Leo: 1, 3, 4, 9; Virgo: 6, 8; Libra: 5, 7; Scorpio: 2, 3, 7, 9; Sagittarius: 1, 3, 4, 9; Capricorn: 5, 6; Aquarius: 5, 6; Pisces: 2, 4, 7.

Commuters anxious

Changing times: Ballarat train commuters now have an extra daily peak service running to and from Ballarat. Picture: file photoMORE services aren’tnecessarily better for the daily Ballarat train commuter.
Nanjing Night Net

V/Line’sintroduction of an extrarun duringboth daily peak periods from Ballarat to Melbourne begins on Monday, but commuters still aren’t fully satisfied with the trip.

The change in timetables,taking into account the completedRegional Rail Link project, began on Sunday.

It is the week day trips that interest Ballarat’s residents themost.

Daily commuterJonathan Nolan, who previously took the 7.35am service from Ballarat Stationfor an 8.45am arrival at Southern Cross under the existing system, said the time change had been welcome for Ballarat residents starting their working day at 9am in Melbourne.

Mr Nolan said he now has an extra 10 minutes to get to workunder the new system with a service now leaving Ballarat at 7.24am,but is concerned about the continuing nature of overcrowded trains.

“The fact that there’s more servicesavailable is a good thing,” Mr Nolan said.

“Currently we’ve got overcrowding and quite often I’m giving up my seat.

“When the train arrives from Wendouree it’s quite sparse, but it’s close to full by Ballarat and it’s overcrowded from Ballan.

“From Bacchus Marsh and Ballan it’s definitely over capacity.”

Each service leaving Wendouree in the week daymorning stops at Ballan and Bacchus Marsh.

However, four extra peak-hourservices for BacchusMarsh will also clearsome of the congestionsuffered by passengerson the trip to Melbourne.

The next service leaving Ballarat Station in the morning departs at 7.46am for an 8.58am arrival at Southern Cross, proving nonviable for those with 9am work deadlines.

Mr Nolan said the primary focus should still be to lessen the travel time between Ballarat and Melbourne to one hour.

Options from Melbourne to Ballarat can lessen travel time to just 66 minutes, while tripsfrom Ballarat to Melbourne exceed 70 minutes.

“Some of the trains are running a very quick time to Ballarat,” Mr Nolan said.

“It’s reasonable to assume that same journey speed could be made in the morning.”

Driver faces two years in jail over Oberon forest crash

TRAGIC DEATH: Brielle Falzon, 15, died in a forest crash near Oberon in June last year.
Nanjing Night Net

A 25-YEAR-OLD man has been jailed for two years over the death of a 15-year-old girl in a forest crash near Oberon last year.

Adam Moore was behind the wheel of a Holden Rodeo during a late-night ride through Lowes Mount State Forest on June 6, 2014 when he navigated a sharp corner too fast, causing the ute to roll.

Albion Park girl Brielle Falzon was crushed and killed in the crash.

Moore, from Bellambi in Wollongong, will now spend at least two years in jail for the dangerous driving that caused the teen’s tragic death after he was sentenced in Sutherland District Court.

Speaking outside court on Friday, members of Brielle’s family choked back tears as they remembered their “cheeky monkey” – a vivacious young woman with an indomitable spirit.

Her aunty, Crystal Carriage, described her niece as “a beautiful person, inside and out”.

“She loved her friends and she loved her family, she would have been very proud of her friends at the moment.”

Also at the court on Friday was Brielle’s grandmother, Veronica Glover-Chambers, who the teen lived with for three years while attending school in Albion Park, and who she adored.

Mrs Portelli said Brielle’s heartbroken mother, Alexis Wilson, was unable to face the physical and emotional strain of the sentencing proceedings.

She said Brielle’s family was happy with the sentence and felt Judge Paul Conlon had been fair in handing Moore a four-year prison term with a two-year non-parole period.

Moore had drunk six beers on the evening of June 6, 2014, when he and four others decided to go driving through Lowes Mount State Forest during a long-weekend camping trip.

Brielle was sitting on the car’s front passenger window sill when Moore reached a 90-degree right-hand bend, travelling too fast to safely navigate the corner.

The car’s rear end drifted and the vehicle rolled once, killing the teenager.

Judge Conlon rejected Moore’s claim he was unaware Brielle and a back-seat passenger were seated on the car’s window sills.

In the moments after the accident, the court heard Moore said to a friend “get me a bullet so I can kill myself”.

However, the court heard the Bellambi man claimed the accident occurred when he tried to put the car into third gear but accidentally put it into first instead, however, the vehicle was found to be in fourth gear directly after the crash.

Both speed and alcohol were a factor in the crash and Judge Conlon said ultimately Moore was responsible for keeping his passengers safe.

Moore will be eligible for release from jail on June 18, 2017.

Police officer punched in the head 20 times in Surry Hills restaurant

A man who allegedly punched two police officers in Surry Hills on Sunday morning has been charged with assault.
Nanjing Night Net

Mii Metua Joseph Fortes, 27, was reportedly yelling obscenities at staff in a fast-food restaurant on Oxford Street when approached by the two plainclothes officers about 1.50am on Sunday.

The senior constables, both from Surry Hills Local Area Command, identified themselves as police officers before approaching him, a NSW Police spokeswoman said.

Mr Fortes then allegedly punched one of the officers on the head up to 20 times before forcing him to the ground. The officer sustained numerous cuts to his face.

Mr Fortes then allegedly turned his focus to the second police officer, running at him and allegedly punching him in the forehead. The officer was left with swelling and bruising to his face.

Neither officer was seriously injured and did not attend hospital.

The man was arrested after a number of other officers arrived at the scene.

He was taken to Surry Hills police station and charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer in execution of duty causing actual bodily harm and behaving in offensive manner.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Sunday.
