Hot hot heat

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

KYABRAM has en­dured one of its most sus­tained hot spells for years, with the mer­cury soar­ing above 35 de­grees for 13 con­sec­u­tive days up to Mon­day.

The heat­wave be­gan on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 18, when the mer­cury climbed to 38.6 and reached a high of 43.7 two days later on Satur­day, Jan­uary 20.

Storms last Fri­day night and Satur­day morn­ing var­ied across the district, with the Kyabram Weather Sta­tion record­ing 23.4mm to take the Jan­uary to­tal to 34.2mm, which is slightly above the av­er­age for this month of 33.8mm. MEET Ton­gala’s model cit­i­zen.

Ry­ley didn’t make it into the fi­nal three but was very ap­pre­cia­tive of the ex­pe­ri­ence af­ter be­ing a lit­tle ap­pre­hen­sive about en­ter­ing the quest.

The 18-year-old, who has just started an ap­pren­tice­ship as an elec­tri­cian with Brett Cox, was not only judged wear­ing an ar­ray of var­i­ous at­tire, but also on groom­ing, nu­tri­tional needs and other ben­e­fi­cial self-in­dul­gent qual­i­ties.

Ry­ley is now look­ing to con­cen­trate on play­ing foot­ball for Ton­gala this sea­son, so his po­ten­tial mod­el­ling ca­reer is on hold just at the mo­ment.

While Ry­ley was sup­ported by his fa­ther, Wayne, at the mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion fi­nal in Syd­ney his mother, Bernie, was busy watch­ing an­other of the tal­ented Cow­ley sport­ing sib­lings, Macken­zie, com­pet­ing in the Un­der 14 State Cricket Cham­pi­onships with the Northern Rivers team, which lost the fi­nal to the Melbourne-based South East Bay­side Break­ers at Essendon last Sun­day.
