Mark Lizotte, aka Diesel, heads to Laurieton United Services Club on greatest hits tour

– by Vickii Byram With 30 years of chart-making success, three time ARIA Best Male Talent (alongside a select few including John Farnham, Alex Lloyd and Gotye) Mark Lizotte, better known as Diesel, says he has had a charmed life, making music exclusively for people that are interested. “What more could I ask for, ” he says. In 1987, Johnny Diesel and the Injectors moved from Perth to establish themselves in Sydney. And it didn’t take long. Their debut album went plantinum and entered the charts at No. 2 “Sure, I often think of the chain of events coming across from WA. It was a pretty cut and dried situation. We didn’t even get the chance to hang around Sydney like a bad smell. We got off the bus with $93 between us and lived on $5 a day each. We did shows for $200, which was not bad if you were solo, but not a whole band, plus one crew.” read more +

Rotary Club of Laurieton hosts fundraiser for gynaecologist Ray Hodgson’s Nepal hospital

by Laura Telford ​Building a hospital in rural Nepal sounds like a mammoth task and fundraising more than $500,000 to build a Mothers and Babies Hospital in Nepal sounds insane. However after travelling to and from Nepal for almost ten years, specialist gynaecologist Dr Ray Hodgson or Dr Ray – as he is known by all – and his team wanted to do more than just temporary health camps. And so the idea of a specialist hospital was born. “The idea for the hospital first arose four years ago when we were working in the typical dilapidated buildings in the district of Dholakha,” Dr Ray said. “We were aware of the appalling state of women’s health in Nepal, and over the previous four or five years we’d been patching up these problems with surgical camps in various parts of the country. + read more
