Tonight, tough talking unionists

lay down a challenge to Labor.

Pumpkin's father to serve just 12

years for her mother's murder. And years for her mother's murder. And

the lotto winners who thought the

confirmation email was a joke.

Staff are very excited, customers

are very excited They all know now

that it's a lucky shop here.

Also, a teenage surfer's brush with

a bronze-whaler. And back in the

fast lane - Australia's second

world championship gold in record

time! Jessicah Schipper. Don't stop

glory! now She doesn't! She goes for

But first, unions have upstaged

Labor's national conference, Labor's national conference,

lashing out at the Rudd

government's refusal to scrap the

building watchdog. Covering the

conference for TEN News is Brad

Hodson and he joins us now. This

has livened up what has so far been

a fairly lacklustre event? There

was criticism that debate was it

not progressing and voices were not

being heard all in the process of

presenting a unified front to the

public. Today we saw why they went

to so much effort and it was

industrial action that could open

the floodgates. Construction union

protesters shatter the carefully

orchestrated piece of the A L P

national conference. I am an Labor

Party member. Next door they protested the governments refusal

construction commissions which to scrap the building of to scrap the building of

police the militant construction

unions. Had it not been closely

managed this is what some years

wanted to see on the conference

floor. We should be up there making

a point and not shuffled out into

every him up the bat. If an access

Economics report commissioned by

the union is correct, a lot of

these workers will soon be out of

the job. I have come back with news

that we find very disturbing. They

say there will only be a few

thousand jobs to go in the industry

in the next few years. I don't see

a basis for those numbers. In a

conference that is still yet to see

any issue put to a vote, the big

crack in the vote came from within.

Ministers had the same explanation

for why many don't understand the

announcement of the Prime Minister

on green jobs. Things should move on green jobs. Things should move

fast and everyone can make a

mistake. Everyone can make a

mistake. I don't think he had the

best of days yesterday. The

conference organisers can relate to.

The father of Pumpkin, the little

girl dumped at a Melbourne train

station, has been sentenced to life

in jail. The self styled martial

arts expert could spend as little

as 12 years behind bars for his

wife's murder. Flanked by a burly

prison guards the 56-year-old kept

his emotions in check as he was

poured in. You are convicted and

sentenced to imprisonment for life

for the murder of your wife. He

barely flinched as his life

sentence was handed down for the

murder of his wife. You were

prepared to kill her if she did not

do what you wanted. And that was

clearly an attitude that he had for

some time. His sentence could be as

brief as 12 years before parole.

The pound he does not take into

account the dumping of his daughter

at Southern Cross railway station

in September 2007. The judge

described this act as cool and

callous. She was left with little

more than the clothes on her back.

-- cool. Days earlier he strangled

his wife with a tie and her body

was found in the boot of a car in

Auckland. The self-styled martial

arts expert was on the run for five

months in the US before being

arrested in Georgia and extradited

under high security to New Zealand.

Pumpkin now lives with her maternal

grandparents in China. She is still

confused over the fact that her

mother is gone. The courtroom drama

is far from over, he maintains his

innocence and has lodged an appeal

against his sentence. A man

convicted with his own suicide note

is about to be sentenced for

murdering his partner - whose body

was hidden for 7 years. Today heartbroken family members

told the judge of their anguish.

told the judge of their anguish. It

is a question that has haunted the

family for years. What happened to

Lisa? It just goes on and on.

Mother of two, she was last seen in

1999. Her partner and the confessed

to strangling her in 2007, when he

left a suicide note. The note cold

place where to find her skeletal

remains, wrapped in plastic in a

shed on his property north of

Orange. He said she snapped after

she threw a cup of coffee at his

face. Today her family told of the

firm -- torment they suffered for

so long thinking she was lost and

then learning she was murdered. The

loss of our daughter, Nice and

friend has shaken us to the court.

Adding to the anguish is that her

father died before the confession.

-- to the core. The father was only

metres from the shed where her

remains were concealed and he never

knew. The family will return to

court next month when the 43-year-

old will be sentenced.

Private Benjamin Ranaudo, the 11th

Australian soldier to die in

Afghanistan, has been honoured with

a military funeral in Melbourne. As

the Rudd Government paid tribute to

the young soldier, the Prime Minister reaffirmed his commitment

to the war against terror. Full

military honours for the 22-year-

old. He was killed in action in

Afghanistan. The Prime Minister

joined the family of the down

soldier's family and friends at a

service in Melbourne. We regard him

as an Australian Hero. The PM

believes the war in Afghanistan,

which has now claimed the lives of

11 Australian soldiers, is still

worth fighting. At Federal

Parliament there was a memorial

service for at the trainer killed

in the Jakarta bombings. We were

completely unprepared for his death

and the violent manner of his

passing which seems so at odds with

his loving nature. As the Australia

mourns, our troops in Afghanistan

and continue their work. The

Australian troop numbers in the

war-torn nation are increasing as

planned. As part of the 60

commitment soon coming to an end,

there is a homecoming that the PM

does not seem to know about. I do

not have the precise timetable of

that. A security detachment remains

in place to protect our embassy

staff in Baghdad. The Rudd

government has not ruled out for

week in nursing out veterans. I

think it is something we should do.

-- officially recognising our

veterans. A Sydney woman who won

$40 million in last night's

Powerball draw, thought the

confirmation email was a hoax. 5

million tickets were sold for the million tickets were sold for the

record jackpot, but in the end

there were just two winners.

Hundreds of hopefuls clutching

slips turns out and news agencies

across western Sydney with wish-

list complete. Writ would be nice

to it take a holiday and held up

relatives. # It would be nice. If I

win I will take my husband around

the world. At this Penrith news

agency many queued to see if they

had the golden ticket. A lot of

people were not sure. They thought

they had the potential winner. This

afternoon NSW lotteries confirmed

that this man had sold the $40

million ticket. The staff are

excited, everyone knows it is the

lucky shop now. The winner did not

list a contact phone number so she

received the good news in an email.

A judge has ruled former Islamic

spokesman Keysar Trad is a racist,

whose views might have condoned

violence. The Supreme Court has

dismissed a defamation case against

Radio 2GB, after broadcaster Jason

Morrison described Trad as

"dangerous", "disgraceful" and a

"pest". Justice Peter McClellan has

ruled in favour of the station,

saying Trad's comments after the

Cronulla riots appeared to condone

violence, with views that are

disgraceful and offensive to Jews

and homosexuals. It's in the hands

of the rest of the media as to how

they view his future as a

commentator on Islamic issues, and

I imagine it's also in the hands of

the Islamic community. Keysar Trad

will now reportedly have to pay

costs of up to $400,000.

The man who helped save The Rocks

from being bulldozed has joined the

fight to save another historic

Sydney site. Today he was back on

the job encouraging union workers

to impose a Green Ban.

In the battle to save Pyrmont's

historic Union Square, residents

today called in the big gun -

legendary green activist Jack

Mundey, the man credited with

leading the union charge to save

The Rocks from demolition in the

1970s. The Rocks now has well over

a million people a year going to

see the birthplace of convict

Australia and yet would they go

there to see 40-storey buildings?

Like he did 35 years ago, he backed

a call for building workers to slap

a Green Ban on the planned Metro

Station site. To stop Sydney Metro

turning our neighbourhood into

rubble. All those in favour -

please, raise your hand. Union

members threw their full weight

behind preserving the square's 19th

century buildings. Putting your

hand up is the easy part - but I'm

confident when we call on you,

you'll be there en-masse. Hear,

Hear. Union bosses say they'll not

only call on their members to down

tools, but to form a human

perimeter around these buildings to

stop them being demolished.

Residents say other sites,

including a nearby car park, could

house the station. It doesn't

represent as good an option as far

as pedestrian and commuter access.

While final assessments wrap up,

local businesses are pinning their

local businesses are pinning their

hopes on the union-saving Union Square.

Residents say they're dumbstruck by

plans to destroy trees and bushland

to make way for a suburban

adventure course. A major fight is now brewing.

Bidjigal Reserve is a bushland

oasis in the middle of suburbia,

but the sounds of native birds will

be replaced with the roar of

chainsaws, under a plan to construct a high-wire adventure

course. We were simply dumbstruck,

and we realised then that we would

have to fight to keep this

beautiful bush intact. 77 trees

will be cut down to make way for

flying fox rides and a network of

elevated walkways, under a proposal

by UK company Go Ape. Residents say

the development will harm the

native wildlife. As soon as we

start to take out habitat trees, we

upset that balance of nature. And

they fear the estimated 30,000

annual visitors will destroy

sensitive undergrowth. It is

something that should be preserved

and protected for the future use of

the citizens of the shire and the

citizens of the State. The area

also has Aboriginal heritage

importance. The Bidjigal people,

after whom the reserve was named,

once lived in rock shelters in this

region and it maintains cultural

significance. I'm not happy with

the way they are going to interfere

with the wildlife and the habitat

around the place, I don't think

that's right. But Go Ape says it

will be planting even more trees,

and will be working to educate

people about the bush. But

residents aren't convinced. This is

a beautiful piece of bushland and

it should be preserved because it's

all we've got left. The Hills Shire

A $300 million marina - one of the

biggest in Australia - is to

transform Sydney's Homebush Bay.

The project is expected to generate hundreds of jobs.

The State Government's about to

make Homebush Bay the largest

maritime precinct in the State. Now

the site of a radio transmitter,

from next year it will be

transformed into a $300 million marina, entertainment and boating

industry complex. It's about giving

people the opportunity to enjoy

their weekends out on the water and

that's why we've specifically

earmarked this massive 18-hectare

site for the purpose of

recreational activity. As well as

boat ramp access, the Government is

encouraging companies to set up

marine repair services and dry

stack storage for recreational

boats, that are currently kept at

private homes. To be able to put

these boats in a big shed, close to

the waterways, that's one of the

things that we're looking at.

Because 40% of boat registrations

are out in the greater metropolitan

area, this facility will become the

western gateway to Sydney Harbour.

The Government is calling for expressions of interest to build

and fund the project. They expect

to create 500 jobs during the

construction phase. What better

thing to do on a Friday then think

about Saturday. There will be more

I don't think it's mission

impossible, I think we match up

well against the Saints and had a

good match against them in Round 1.

We'll give them a red-hot crack.

The Swans have won 6 of their past

7 games at the SCG.

Can Paul Roos get a win against his

match on both TEN and ONE HD from 7:30pm.

To borrow a line from Bill Lawry,

it was all happening at Edgbaston

last night. There was the Phillip

Hughes Twitter-gate drama, an

unbeaten 62 from Shane Watson, Brad

Haddin busted a finger, and Ricky

Ponting is just 8 runs short of

becoming Australia's greatest Test run scorer.

As Phil Hughes endures the switch

from golden boy to a man on the

outer, infuriating team hierarchy

wasn't the smartest move. He leaked

news of his own axing via social

networking site Twitter long before

the sides were announced, forcing

selectors into damage control. My

hands are tied as to what I can

save. The players have been

informed and told exactly why they

are in or out of the side.

are in or out of the side. After

five Tests at the top, Hughes was

replaced by makeshift opener Shane

Watson. After a 6-hour rain delay,

the all-rounder entered with a

point to prove. So far the evidence

is encouraging - Watson well

supported by a similarly aggressive

Simon Katich. He looked set for a

run-a-ball 50, before Swann's spin

sent him packing.

Watson continued on his way, his

maiden innings as Test opener

yielding his second half-century.

He and Ponting remain unbeaten

heading in to day two. Australia's

line-up though is a batsman down.
