Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 20 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 21, 2008 3 Small steps to beat the global heat CUMBERLAND Courier Newspapers, publisher of the Inner-West Weekly, has committed to a major energy reduction program. Cumberland Courier is part of an Australia-wide drive by our parent company, News Ltd, to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent and become carbon neutral by 2010. The plan is called One Degree because it focuses on the small things we can do individually that add up to a major shift. Cumberland Courier general manager John Webster said the company had already made considerable progress in cutting its carbon emissions over the past 12 months. This has included changing most of our lights to be more energy efficient -- yet brighter -- and reducing our after- hours energy consumption through better building management and turning off airconditioning, lights and equipment. Mr Webster said major activities planned for the coming year should significantly reduce our impact on the environment, and engage our readers and build greater awareness in the communities we serve. The challenge to use less energy and protect our environment applies to us all. Everyone can make a real contribution to tackling climate change just by being smarter about the way we use energy in our homes and offices. This week, we launch a One Degree section to highlight the efforts being made by local councils, businesses, schools and households to reduce their carbon footprint -- See Page 30. We will publish regular reports about the best energy savers in our community.

The shout from among the crowd said it best when Prem- ier Morris Iemma finished ad- dressing a 400-strong throng of mostly Italians crammed into a small corner of Five Dock. Despite the unseasonal heat last Friday, the crowd, including inter- national dignitaries, waited patiently for more than 40 minutes for the Premier to arrive for the much-anticipated unveiling of La Famiglia in Stevensons Reserve. Mr Iemma spoke of the signifi- cance of the family theme for the sculpture, saying that ''family is the foundation of our society''. ''The statue is a beautiful evo- cation of Italians and Italy,'' he said. The sculpture signified the pain and suffering of separated families when members of the family migrated before the others, he said. The statue is the brainchild of Joe Di Giacomo, president of Associazione Lucania of Sydney and federal president of the Associazioni Lucane in Australia, who was inspired by his brother Donato (Danny). Mr Di Giacomo opened the cer- emony with a heartfelt speech about how the statue came to fruition. Sculptor Antonio Masini, who donated his talent and time to the project, thanked Sydney ''for the sun'' in broken English. He told the crowd that he would learn English in his second life. ''We want people to think of Italians for more than our mando- lins and spaghetti -- we want them to think of us for our art,'' he said. Masini thanked Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas for his help with the project. Cr Tsirekas paid homage to the Italians and acknowledged the area as the traditional meeting place of the Wangal people. La Famiglia was blessed by Monsignor Don Giustino D'Addezio from the Vatican. The Inner-West Weekly is a co- sponsor of La Famiglia. Huge winter clearance! HURRY! ONLY WHILE STOCKS LAST.
