Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 25 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 26, 2008 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au BRIEFLY Just the ticket WHEN shopping at Supa IGA Croydon Park, look out for products displaying the community chest ticket and help Croydon Park Public School. The new store is involved in the IGA Community Chest program, which gives a percentage from certain products back to the community. Pets getting fat AUSTRALIAN pets are following in their owners footsteps, with a large percentage of cats and dogs overweight, according to RSPCA statistics. Unhealthy human lifestyle is affecting our pets with 41 per cent of dogs and 33 per cent of cats considered overweight or obese. Portion control can help pets, but dogs need to stay fit with regular aerobic exercise, while cats can keep busy with toys and cat furniture with scratching posts. Water price hike HOUSEHOLD water bills will rise by $126 over the next year to fund the desalination plant and other water infrastructure, Sydney Water has announced. Households will be charged an extra 30 per cent or $245 plus CPI by 2011-12, with prices rising by 17 per cent over the next year. People suffering financial hardship will be able to apply for discounts, managing director of Sydney Water Kerry Schott said. Water efficiency programs would also be funded, she said. New prices will begin from July. Series shows kids the door to the nest FIONA BRADY The Troche family from Lidcombe who are starring in the new SBS show, The Nest. Left to right Marta, daughter Anielka and dad Oscar. MUM'S home cooking and a free taxi service are just two of the reasons why Anielka Troche still lives with her parents at the age of 25. The Lidcombe student and her parents, Oscar and Marta Troche, are starring in a new television series about the phenomenon of adult children who still live in the family home. The Nest challenged parents and children from three different families to try to live independently of each other with the help of a relationship expert and a financial guru. Mrs Troche said the family are ''very excited'' about their television debut, although she wouldn't give away any details. ''I'd never have dreamt we'd be in a show but we felt very proud to be selected,'' she said. ''I think it will be great, we have been very honest.'' Both Mrs Troche and her husband come from Uruguay and have maintained many cultural values. The family eat dinner together every night, (which Anielka helps cook), but she only pays a token rent. At 22, she did move out briefly but the inner- city rent and pressure of working two jobs while studying, proved too difficult and she returned home after six months. Mrs Troche was very glad to welcome her back. ''She is our only daughter and she is very special,'' she said. ''We love having her at home but we cannot stop her if she wanted to move. ''You are only 25 once in your life.'' THE Nest starts at 7.30pm on SBS this Saturday.
