HONOURING RACERS: The signs on Mount Panorama unveiled in August not only honour drivers, but motorcycle racers, too. Ron Toombs won an incredible 17 major events at the annual Bathurst bike races during his illustrious career in the late 1960s and early ’70s. He retired from racing in 1975, then made a comeback at the age of 46 at his favourite track – Mount Panorama. He was running in eighth place until injuries sustained when he crashed into a tree claimed his life.

NOTE TO SELF: Long-time local Elvis impersonator Gerard Barnes marked the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death by performing renditions of his favourite songs. The iconic musician died on August 16, 1977 at his Memphis home, Graceland. Elvis starred in 33 films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and received great acclaim through many record-breaking live concert performances. Mr Barnes said he started following Elvis’ career as a school boy and has since collected hundreds of pieces of Elvis memorabilia. He is pictured surrounded by just some of that memorabilia.

ZEN: This beautiful dog is a 20-month-old Akita (Japanese) called Kichi. Her proud owner Sharon Lowe took Kichi down to the Japanese garden in Bathurst recently to introduce her to a little piece of her ancestral homeland. The pretty little dog felt right at home. In fact, in this photo it could be said she looks like she is meditating. Sharon said Kichi is the very first champion of her breed in Australia. 082214kichi
