Charles John Minter 1897 - 1991
A picture which appeared in The Press (York) on 24 July 2019. It was accompanied by the following text:
HERE'S a man wearing the look of pride you get from a job well done.

The date is October 1963, and the man is Mr CJ Minter, the former York city engineer. And the bridge he's looking at? Clifton Bridge, of course - which Mr Minter and his team from the city engineers' department helped to build.

There had been talk of building a bridge here at Clifton, on the site of an old ferry crossing, for at least 50 years - plans had been put before the council in 1913. They came to nothing. In 1932, the plans were revived, as part of a scheme for an outer ring road, but again nothing happened.

By 1955, some preliminary work actually began on a scheme for a bridge at Clifton. But these plans too fizzled out.

In 1961, however, a young woman called Katharine Worsley married the Duke of Kent in York's own version of a Royal Wedding at York Minster. In order to handle the extra traffic anticipated, the army put up a temporary bridge across the river at Clifton. That temporary bridge was so successful that it finally paved the way for a permanent bridge to be built.

The bridge took two years to complete, and cost £230,000 to build: which prompted The Yorkshire Evening Press of October 25, 1963, to make a few snarky comments.

“The cost now: £230,000,” the newspaper reported. “The cost if it had been built 50 years ago: about £35,000.”

Still, today even that £230,000 seems like good value. Mr Minter had good reason for his pride. It is hard to imagine York without the bridge now...

Corn Hill, Texas, a painting by Talmage Minter
Corn Hill, Texas, a painting by Talmage Minter
Talmage describes the painting thus: Corn Hill is about 20-30 miles from our capital city of Austin. The church seems to be a little-used relic from another era. It's built in the style of a miniature cathedral. Despite its bucolic setting, it strikes me as a rather dark place. The horse represents, perhaps, the disinterest of God who has turned away from a dead expression of Christianity. To my way of thinking, the white color of the horse symbolizes God's purity, but also (maybe) hope for a new beginning.
I am probably the only artist in operation who paints nothing but old Texas churches. It is the mystery and the symbolism that I find endlessly fascinating.

More of Talmage's paintings can be seen at his website www.talmageminterart.wordpress.com

Orange boom times a good chance for navel gazing

Mildura orange grower Darren Minter is a happy man. After a cool summer, ripe oranges are hanging heavily from the trees on his farm near Iraak, Victoria, ready to be harvested.

But it is not just the size, quality and taste that is better this year. So too are the ­export prices, with Mr Minter’s top-grade navel eating oranges selling for $1000 a tonne, driven to record highs by unprecedented Chinese demand.

Six years ago China did not buy a single fresh orange from Australia. This year it will overtake Japan as Australia’s biggest export destin­ation, with 40,000 tonnes of ­oranges worth $70 million — about one-quarter of all orange ­exports — to be shipped to China.

The trade surge is the result of the obsession by middle-class Chin­ese consumers with eating healthy, safe food grown in Australia; a desire that has spread from infant milk formula and beef to now include fresh fruit.

Even major orange exporters such as the Mildura Fruit Company — bought several years ago by Chinese state-owned Bright Foods — can’t keep up, despite ­increased production from big growers such as Minter Magic.

It’s a remarkable industry turnaround for citrus growers such as the Minter family, who have been farming grapes, oranges and ­almonds along the Murray River near Mildura for four generations.

Six years ago, orange prices were so low — one-tenth of current­ values — growers were ripping out trees, leaving fruit to rot on the ground or feeding oranges to cattle. Many citrus farmers planted wine grapes instead.

“It’s been an amazing change after a very tough decade. In 2011 after the drought I was on my arse financially, wondering how I would pay the bills and ready to walk away,” Mr Minter says.

“If you had told me then that five years later my farm would have tripled in size (to 300ha), I’d be planting more trees and oranges­ would be selling for $1000 a tonne, I would have laughed.”

But for Australian consumers the export boom to China has a downside. While fresh oranges ­remain cheap in supermarkets — although the best fruit is all going overseas — the price of Australian-grown orange juice has climbed to more than $7 for two litres­. It is simply not worthwhile for Australian farmers to grow the lower-value Valencia juicing ­oranges for the local market when export prices are so high.

It has left local juice companies such as Berri and Daily Juice — both owned by the Japanese Lion-Kirin group — forced to import orange juice concentrate from Brazil. Stickers added to Daily Juice’s orange juice last month warned consumers that “a ­national­ shortage of oranges” had forced a switch to imports.

Moree farmer Dick Estens, who owns The Grove juice company, has resorted to planting large orchards of new Valencia trees on his own properties to ensure his business does not run dry.

“The Chinese are sucking in ­oranges from everywhere, it’s causing us a headache,” Mr Estens says.

“I’m not sure Australian consumers have realised that unless they pay more for locally grown orange juice, maybe $10 for two ­litres, it’s all going to end up with the rising Chinese middle class.”
