A new 'Discovery'
After more than 25 years of typing, sub-editing and proof-reading Tony's book; 'THE LAST GAMBLE' & 'THE YEARS BETWEEN', which too many people have believed would never be finished... let alone published, at 11-30 am, Wednesday the 21st of March, 2012, in Parliament House, Canberra, the book will be officially 'launched' by Mr. Craig Kelly (Member for Hughes)! __
I will ...be assisting Tony, who at 87 years of age,will depart Parliament House, Sydney, at 10-30 am, Monday the 19th of March, to roller skate to Canberra, where practical, whilst pushing a disabled person in a wheelchair! __
The book will be the culmination of his 'impossible dream' that embraces the 'aims & objectives' of THE (NON-PROFIT) AUSTRALIAN ROLLER SKATING CLUB, which he founded on 'Self-help' with 'Community involvement'! __
This simple plan would see countless people enjoying a healthy Sport and Recreation, with profits from this venture given 100% to support the disabled in every community through; 'DISCOVERY' - THE NATIONAL HANDICAPPED CHILDREN AND PARENTS' ADJUSTMENT PLAN, which he also founded! __
The book reveals the Truth about how a group of business people used the Law Courts improperly (aided by the lies, deceit and dishonesty of Members on certain Western Suburbs Councils) and circumvented the ARSC's enterprise for their own benefit, whereby the business people became the beneficiaries of the Profits... NOT THE CHILDREN! __
His spare time saw him embark on a 'Skate round Australia' as part of a 'CRUSADE FOR CHILDREN' to try and change the contradictory law that did not clarify whether a Child on roller skates was classed by the Motor Traffic Act as; a 'VEHICLE' or, a 'PEDESTRIAN' __ This story is written solely because of his 'oath', made when his Down' syndrome Son was close to death, which has seen Tony dedicate 6 decades of his life to all Children... both healthy and disabled
