Girl guide boom By TREVOR JACKSON

YOU could be forgiven for thinking the Girl Guides are a thing of the past, not really relevant in today’s society. But that couldn’t be further from the truth - at least here in Albury. With the local group about to celebrate its 80th birthday, the biggest problem they face is a lack of leaders. The girls are keen, and they’re plentiful, but the group has had to turn some away, due to not enough adults having time to give. And in a way, that’s not a bad problem. The Albury group has continued to remain viable, and if the local leaders have any say, it will remain so for years to come. “Guides is very progressive and inclusive,� Irene Hughes said. Irene is a more recent addition to the leadership group, with around six years of service to her name. “Fun is the primary focus - we play a lot of outdoor games,� she said. A more senior member, Lorraine Graham, with some 35 years of service to her credit, said the movement looked to keep pace with modern trends.

“We have a thing now called JOTI - Jamboree of the Internet,� she said. “The girls get to interact with guides from overseas using the internet. “We used to do it all by radio, but now we have a few computers and keep in touch that way.� Bev Halburd, who began as a Brownie in Albury back in 1944, fondly remembers the history of the group, and still enjoys her involvement. “We didn’t have a Guide hall back then - we met in church halls,� she said. “Most of our functions were held in the gardens. In 1953 we got our first Guide hut on the grounds where the Guide hall is today.� Bev said over the years the numbers of girls fluctuated, from two to three separate ’packs’, with 24 girls in each, to the current number of 27 girls. And Lorraine offered the last word, providing another insight into the popularity of the movement. “You make lasting friendships,� she explained. “Many of my really good friends are those I’ve met through Guiding. “It’s just something very special.�

Family fun

MOTORCYCLE fans on the Border flocked to Gateway Lakes on the weekend for the fifth annual Border Bikefest. Spotted there were Albury twins, Charli and Madison Fyffe, 3, scooting around on their bikes. For more pictures and a report from the event turn to page four.

ALBURY residents are falling behind when it comes to recycling waste in the home. According to a recent waste audit, 18 per cent of material in residential waste bins contained recyclables, up four per cent on 2010 figures. AlburyCity waste management team leader Andrea Baldwin said their aim was for zero percent of recyclable material going to landfill. “Recyclable material that goes into regular rubbish bins ends up in landfill,� she said. “We’re encouraging everybody to double check what’s going into their rubbish bin and ask: can this be recycled?� But Ms Baldwin said people could simply be running out of bin space. “It’s possible that residents’ recycling bins are at capacity, so they’re using their regular bins as an alternative,� she said. “If that’s the case we’d advise residents to compact their recyclable material by breaking down packaging wherever possible. “Alternatively, residents who are running out of room in their regular recycling bin can upgrade to a 360-litre bin for only $20 per year.� And on a positive, the amount of overall waste going to landfill annually has dropped by 16,000 tonnes with domestic household waste down by 28 per cent.

Give a thought to our unsung heroes THE action of giving is something we are blessed with here on the Border. There seems to be no shortage of willing servants, only too happy to give their time and efforts for a good cause. During an interview recently it was noted there are many fundraisers happening, and people are probably tired of hearing about them. Then the person said words to the effect of, “What are we to do? Let the illness beat us? Leave it for someone else?� And those words rang true with me. Sure, there are many fundraisers that pop up, all claiming a worthy cause, and worthy they certainly are. But let’s not forget the other selfless actions so prevalent in our society. Our page three story may well point to the recognition of one volunteer in the region, but it’s typical of so many others. These volunteers seldom make the news, they’re the unsung heroes of society, and they continue to give, whether recognised or not. And humbleness seems a constant factor among them all. But it isn’t only those raising funds or helping the needy. How many people do you know who give their time to local junior sporting groups? Coaches, team managers, canteen ladies the list is endless. Without their help our society would be a much poorer place. We should all praise the volunteer when the opportunity presents. If you’re thinking about a voluntary role, takes Pam Adams’ advice and “go for it�.

Home-grown heroes “JUST go for, don’t hesitate,� is the advice offered from Pam Adams for those considering volunteering for community groups. “There’s so much out there and it’s just so rewarding.� And Pam knows better than most how rewarding it can be, not just because of the fact she’s been named as one of only four Victorian finalists in the Australia’s Local Hero awards, but because she’s been volunteering for over 30 years. “It’s what we’re here for, to help other people, and try to make them comfortable in their life,� she said. Pam currently volunteers for Foodshare Wodonga, a group that collects and grows produce

to distribute to the needy in the community. She also volunteers for Telecross, a group that keeps in touch with older residents to ensure they are safe and well, and at 67-years-of-age, she doesn’t look like slowing down yet. But to be honoured with an award was the last thing on Pam’s mind when she began volunteering. “I feel very humble, very excited,� she said. “After I got the phone call I got a letter to say what was happening. I kept waiting for them to ring or write to me and say “sorry, we’ve got the wrong name, forget it� – that’s how I felt. “I cried, I laughed - it was

Bike show’s a blast By TREVOR JACKSON THE Border Bikefest has again been hailed a success in its fifth showing in the region. The public was again treated to a great family day out with over 220 bikes from various areas across the country on display. This included the largest contingent of Victory motorcycles seen on the Border, one of which took the overall honours of champion bike of the day. The contest for loudest bike of the show was again well attended, with onlookers lining the fence, some with fingers in ears, to see who could provide the biggest bang. Traders attended from as far as Melbourne and Sydney, commenting to event co-ordinator Mike Georgiou on the quality of the event. But it wasn’t just those making a dollar who were impressed.

CUSTOM… Custom bikes of all kinds provided a feast for the eyes.

PEDAL-POWER… Sometimes small is just as interesting...

NUMBERS… Big crowds attended the fifth Border Bikefest.

Mr Georgiou said the feedback he’d received from the general public was very positive. And financially, he said the committee was hoping to donate around $10,000 to local charity groups as a result. “Last year we donated to the Carers Accommodation Centre, the Uniting Church building appeal in Wodonga and to a youth refuge in Yackandandah,” he said. “We haven’t decided yet who will get the money this year, but once we have a final tally, we’d like it to go to local charities we’re committed to.” While the popularity of the event continued, Mr Georgiou said the committee was not looking to expand dramatically, but rather preferred to contain the day and continue to provide a family-friendly experience.

TRIKE… This trike created a fair amount of interest.

NO matter what your chosen interest or profession, everyone needs a mentor. Local arts student, Zoe Manuel, has landed herself the opportunity of a lifetime – to be tutored and guided in the ways of the watercolour by international artist, John Dobson. “Every Wednesday I go around to his house for an hour and he’ll teach and coach me on different types of painting, lighting and different styles,” Ms Manuel said. “He passes on the traditional stuff.” So how did this come about? “I bought one of his works around Christmas time last year, I just fell in love with the series and I ended up buying one,” she said. “It took me a little bit to save for it. “I called him after the exhibition and he said to come to his house and have a look at everything else. “I walked into a garage full of inspiration and absolutely fantastic art works. From there on I’ve seen heaps of his stuff, it’s incredible.” Ms Manuel is full

NOSTALGIA… Alexandra and Katrina Thorpe with some of the dolls to be displayed at the Doll, Bear and Hobby Show.

Old dolls need new tricks By KRYSTEN MANUEL PORCELAIN doll making is sadly becoming rarer and rarer. Which is all the more reason to attend the Albury Doll, Bear and Hobby Show, and support not just this fading art, but Aspire support services, who in turn support individuals and families with a range of disabilities. I know I always feel a wave of nostalgia when I look at a porcelain doll’s intricately painted face and hand-knitted clothes. Whether it be yours, your mum’s, your grandmother’s or great grandmother’s, we’ve all know one or more of these beautifully crafted creations.

Some of the dolls on display are antiques, ranging back to the very early 1900s. “The Doll and Hobby Show was originally held at Wodonga Civic Centre,” co-ordinator Sue Pringle said. “In the early years, the show had 75 booth holders and just under 200 entries in the competition, with over 2,000 people attending. “Dolls and bears were at their peak and continued this way for many years. “Now only the truly dedicated are still making dolls and bears and their numbers have greatly reduced, being only a few ‘makers’ left today.” Hand-crafted bears, including the famous ’Stanley Bears’ will also be show-

cased along with superb craftsmanship demonstrated in doll houses. “The doll and bear competitions have been of a high standard throughout,” Ms Pringle said. “City judges have noted that it is one of the best competitions in Australia.” The Doll, Bear and Hobby Show will be held at Mirambeena Hall, Saturday 1 December, 10am- 4pm. Adults $5, children $2, children under three are free. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea available. Competition entries welcome! For more information, please call 02 6058 4000 or 0402 827 813.

LOOKING for something interesting to do tomorrow with the family? Then why not go down to the Strawberry Fair and Fete. Proceedings get underway at 8.30am with plenty of fun, activities and odds and ends to keep the whole family happy. Sparky the Clown will be on hand to keep the youngsters (or young at heart) entertained and the Wodonga Brass Band will perform between 10 and 11am. A barbecue will be operating, pizzas from the new wood-fired oven will be on offer and food and drinks will be available. Cakes, crafts, books, toys, preserves and all kinds of knick-knacks will be on sale. The Community Shop will be operating, with special clothing prices, and a Christmas hamper raffle will be drawn at 1 pm. But, of course, the highlight of the day will be strawberries and cream with a good ‘cuppa’. So if you have a couple of hours spare tomorrow, head down to Emmanuel Anglican and Uniting Church in Emerald Avenue, Wodonga and enjoy a bit of sunshine with the family.

PHILANTHROPY on the Border will be highlighted this month with ’The Big GIVE’. The event is designed to showcase the difference a grant can make to a community project. Border Trust’s executive officer Glenys Atkins will be on hand to discuss the benefits, 2012 grant recipients will be presented with cheques and success stories from previous grants will be shared. “It’s hard not to be moved when you hear first-hand stories of how a Border Trust grant has enabled a project to come to life,” Ms Atkins said. “By their very nature, our grants are responding to the current needs within our communities, and this appeals to many donors who often struggle to work out which charity to support, and when.” Mr Andrew Lawson, CEO of the Geelong Community Foundation, will also be on hand to talk about the growing Community Foundation movement and how the prospect of giving locally appeals to businesses and individuals alike. The free event takes place on Thursday 29 November, at The Cube, Wodonga. Those interested in attending should contact Border Trust on 02 60513 349 to register or for further information.

Another man’s treasure... WITH all the benefits of Ebay and none of the typical pitfalls, the Tender Centre in Wodonga is the perfect place for avid shoppers and buyers alike. Most of us have been on one or two ‘ebay sprees’ since we discovered the joys of online shopping. But how many times have you been caught out with fake brand sunglasses, damaged goods or had the item simply not show up at all? What if you could see the item before you bid in person, measure it up and even collect it yourself to save those exorbitant postage fees? The Tender Centre offers all this and more! Owner, Robyn Mason, opened the centre’s massive shed doors five years ago and sees the business as a “win, win� situation for buyers and sellers. “As a buyer, you should come in and have a look,� Ms Mason encourages. “You never know what different items you will find each week. “We get some really unusual itemswe take anything that you would sell at a garage sale, including antiques and collectables. “At the moment we have a gift ware shop that has closed down and all those items have come in. “It’s not just used items, we take brand new as well. “It’s like a silent auction. You put down your highest bid not knowing what anyone else is bidding and the highest bidder can win. “Some people really get into it- it’s like a game to them. They take the risk and if they are successful, it’s as if it was meant to be.�

All Items are also available to view and bid online. “For those buyers who don’t like to bid, all items that have been here for more than one week can be purchased straight away,� Ms Mason said. At the Tender Centre, buyers find their diamond in the rough- whether it be a Christmas present, a bargain washing machine or the missing plate to your grandmother’s dinner set. And it’s not just the buyers who walk away with a smile. Rather than having the hassle trying to sell it on E-bay, holding a garage sale, or just giving it away, The Tender Centre helps sellers turn those unwanted items into cash. “We help solve a lot of people’s problems by selling their unwanted items,� Ms Mason said. “People might be downsizing and moving to a retirement village, or have purchased a new item and are thinking ‘what do I do with these extra items?’ “Deceased estates are something we specialise in. We can come in and grab the whole house load. “We have a truck, so we can pick up and deliver. “If the seller doesn’t want the hassle of picking up items that haven’t sold, we can dispose of them by taking them to the opp shop, tip or recycling them. “If it’s a household having a spring clean, a shop that’s closed down or a government department that’s refurbishing, we can take it all and try to sell it on their behalf. “Come in and see the friendly staff who can answer any of your ques- Aladdins Cave...

DIAGNOSED with Osteosarcoma - cancer of the bone - at just 13-years-of-age meant Imogen Wallace’s life would soon depend on life-saving donations of blood. Within days of her diagnosis, Imogen and her parents, Shanelle and Malcolm, were admitted to the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne where she began an intense three months of chemotherapy prior to surgery. The chemotherapy treatment consisted of alternating two weeks in Melbourne receiving the chemotherapy, with two weeks respite, back in Gundowring. Imogen recalls that of those two weeks at home, one was spent in hospital in Albury, receiving antibiotics and transfusions of platelets and blood. Shanelle recalls Imogen’s blood was so affected by the chemotherapy treatment that she would have nose bleeds that refused to stop, as her blood lacked the ability to clot. This relentless and painful routine continued for three months before doctors operated on her tumour, successfully removing it, followed by nine more months of chemotherapy. Over the year of her chemotherapy treatment, Imogen kept count of the number of transfusions she received - a total of 31 units of either platelets or blood. She even recalls that all but two or three were here in Albury. So when locals in our community donate, even though it is managed on a state basis, it is local patients like Imogen who benefit from those donations. Now at the age of 15, Imogen is in remission and doing well and would like the opportunity to thank the many donors who helped in her recovery from Osteosarcoma. Platelets are the part of our blood that aid in clotting and help repair damaged body tissues. The collection of platelets comes when blood donations are centrifuged and separated into red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets don’t survive refrigeration well and have a shelf life of just five days, which is why a constant flow of blood donations is crucial to maintain supply. One in three Australians will need blood or one of the many blood based products in their life. Unfortunately, only one in 30 donate.

Cleanaway gets on board with National Recycling Week NOW in its 17th year, Planet Ark will be celebrating National Recycling Week by encouraging all Australians to take recycling action at their home, school or workplace. As a long time advocate and supporter of the annual campaign, Cleanaway is again getting involved this year to do their part in helping to promote the importance of recycling within the community. Cleanaway, in conjunction with the Albury, Wodonga, Corowa, Indigo, Greater Hume and Towong regional councils, provide over 45,000 households with a fortnightly recycling collection service. As part of this, all households are supplied with a yellow-lidded wheelie bin to place their recycling in. Cleanaway trucks then collect the contents of these bins and transport them to a local Material Recovery Facility (MRF) to get separated and sorted into different streams for recycling, such as glass, steel, plastic, cardboard and paper. A number of different

techniques are used to sort these materials, however one of the main ones is by hand. “Many people are surprised when I tell them that most of our recycling is sorted by people and not machines,” said Cleanaway Education Officer, Vanessa Dwyer. “This means that when people put items into their recycling that they shouldn’t, such as nappies, wire or sharps, it puts our workers at risk.” “Some people find recycling

complex, but it doesn’t have to be,” says Vanessa. There are just a few simple things to remember: •There are only five types of materials you can recycle: 1.Steel cans, such as food tins and empty aerosols, 2.Aluminium cans, foil and pie dishes 3.Glass, but only jars and bottles 4.Paper and cardboard (no silverlined cartons) and 5.Hard Plastics, numbered 1-7 •Plastic bags should NOT go into the recycling bin. “Many residents think they are helping us by putting their recycling into plastic bags, but in actual fact, they’re not.” “What many people don’t realise is, due to safety restrictions, we can’t open the bags, and for this reason, all plastic bags and the contents within them have to be sent to landfill rather than recovered and recycled,” Vanessa said. So now you know what can and can’t be recycled…what happens next you ask?

Well…after the recyclables are separated into different waste streams, the materials are then baled and shipped off to various third parties to be manufactured into new products. Cleanaway also supplies a large amount of recycled materials to the local, national and international commodities markets. If you would like to learn more about waste and recycling, and how we can all improve, keep

an eye out for the Cleanaway Education Trailer during November. Alternatively contact Cleanaway Education Officer, Vanessa Dwyer in the Wodonga office on 02 6024 4590, or at Vanessa.Dwyer@transpac.com. au to find out about the free of charge waste and recycling education program provided by Cleanaway on behalf of the local councils.

DROWNING is the most common cause of death of children under the age of five in Victoria. A properly constructed and maintained safety barrier around a pool or spa substantially increases the safety of children around these common household facilities. Throughout November, Wodonga Council’s building services unit are offering free swimming pool and spa compliance inspections to local residents. Director planning and infrastructure, Leon Schultz, said the move was part of the council’s commitment to safety. “Swimming pool and spa owners should be aware they are required by law to meet government regulations and standards,� he said. “All swimming pools and spas capable of holding more than 30cm (300mm) of water must have safety barriers installed and must be subject to regular maintenance to ensure they remain compliant. “This includes temporary and blow up swimming pools commonly purchased from department stores. Anyone who does not comply with these regulations risks substantial fines, as well as the lives of family and friends.� Anyone wishing to arrange an inspection should contact the council’s building services team on 02 6022 9300.

WITH summer just around the corner it’s time to think seriously about your back yard pool, it’s cleanliness, and of course the running costs involved. The average pool pump can contribute to around 40 per cent of the home power bill, and with the current cost of power to consumers, pool owners are feeling the pinch. Many pool owners may feel it’s no longer viable to continue running a pool pump throughout the winter months, resulting in a green pool that’s tough to clean when the swimming season arrives. Many are considering if it’s even financially viable to own a pool at all. But thanks to Future Wave innovations, it is possible to own a pool, and reduce the cost of running the pump by up to 75 per cent. The Future Wave system basically slows your pool pump down, making it both quieter and more energy efficient, via a simple plug-in device. The Future Wave box is simply plugged into your existing pump and can be adjusted to suit. Turn the dial to ‘max’ and you’ll soon gain the most benefit from the system, without compromising the cleanliness of your water. The system also allows the pump to be returned easily to full power for monthly cleans or a yearly back wash. Many Border pool owners have now taken advantage of the system, and with an initial outlay of less than $1000, the payback period can be around 12 months.

Two three six … and more to come By KRYSTEN MANUEL

Grove offers lifestyle choice By KRYSTEN MANUEL ONCE retired, seniors are faced with a myriad of choices with regards to living. The Grove, Wodonga, is offering another alternative never seen before in the Albury Wodonga region. “The Grove is a gated precinct in White Box Rise and it consists of 25 lots,” White Box Rise land sales manager, Amanda Kotzur explains. “The distinct difference between the grove and a retirement village is that the person who

owns the block gets to own the house outright, even choose their own builder. “If they decide to sell that property 100 per cent of the funds are theirs.” The area is targeted for over 55’s. The main feature, the gates, are automatically locked between 7am and 7pm, with each resident possessing a remote. And it’s a case of first in, best dressed, with only 12 blocks left for purchase. Among these are four cleverly priced house

and land packages. “We’ve produced these homes for people who don’t want to go ahead and buy a block and go through that process - they want it nice and easy,” Ms Kotzur said. “They’re very well priced, we’ve been mindful to keep the spec homes from $292,000 to $328,000. “We did that on purpose because a lot of pensioners are exempt from stamp duty up to $330,000.”

1053340-KG46-12

ALTERNATIVE… The Grove, Wodonga, offers a distinct difference in retirement living.

LIKE many retirees, Noel Trainor doesn’t appreciate his routine being interrupted - in particular, his 36 year streak of saving lives. “I tend to get cranky if something stops me from giving my plasma, it gets to be part of your routine, part of your lifestyle,” Mr Trainor said. Mr Trainor has been giving blood since he was 26. “I had a mate in Sydney who was a blood donor and he said ‘why don’t you come with me and give blood?’ So I did. “When I retired, I started coming every two weeks. “I’ve been giving blood since 1976, I started giving plasma about 10 to12 years ago. “I’ve made about 77 whole blood and about 159 plasma donations, and I was actually the first person to give plasma in this centre (Albury), I just happened to be booked in.” Plasma is used to create 17 different drugs to help people with cancer, blood disorders, burns victims and more. “The demand for plasma has grown,” Albury Donor Centre Manager Sergio De Marchi explained. “They’re actually predicting they could come up with a drug for alzheimers (disease) with plasma.

Feathered family By KRYSTEN MANUEL

REGULAR… Giving plasma is part of Noel Trainor’s fortnightly routine. From page 16 “Some people wouldn’t function or be alive today if it wasn’t for plasma donors. People with a blood disorder receive a drug called IVIG. If they didn’t, they’d be in wheelchairs, or beds, or dead. “Because they can get this drug from plasma donors, they can lead a normal life. It makes a big difference to a lot of people.” If Mr Trainer can do it regularly for 36 years, what’s stopping us from pop-

ping in every now and then? And who knows, the life you save could be your own. “I think the more people we can get to donate plasma, the better,” Mr Trainor said. “The people here are excellent. I find it quite easy and happy. It’s what the community gets out of it and how many people benefit from it, that gives you the pleasure in doing it.” Call the Albury Blood Donor Centre on 13 14 95 or visit donateblood.com. au.

AS one gets older, life long friends begin to pass on, which can make life very lonely. But many seniors have discovered the perfect ‘family member’ who never leaves, lives to a ripe old age... but always talks back! Pauline Hoar is 84, has lived in Wodonga her whole life and shared the last 40 years with her sulphur-crested cockatoo. “I just call her Cocky!” She said. “I got her in ‘72, my son bought her for me- he knew I loved pets. “She’s a female and they don’t talk as good as a male. She does say ‘give us a kiss,’ she calls my late husband and calls the dog. Sometimes she does the microwave. “It’s a wonder she doesn’t talk more, I talk enough for the both of us!” It’s an almost romantic idea to have a pet for life- how many times have we wished our dogs would live longer? And cockatoos are all for the romance. After a long courtship of preening, cockatoos choose a partner and remain monogamous, even displaying ‘site fidelity’- returning the same nesting place. In human terms, these ‘cockys’ are dating, marrying and setting up house. With so many similar characteristics,

it’s no wonder these species are so fond of one another, with cockatoos living twice as long in captivity. Albury resident, Jenny Neill, has had her cockatoo, Charlie, her whole life- almost to the day. “We were both born in September, 1958,” she said. “My grandparents used to own a hotel and nan used to have a lot of birds. She had workers staying at the pub and they came across the nest with a baby bird in it so they took that to Bonnie. “She got up every four hours to feed him with a little eye dropper. When he grew up he used to sit on the stand at the front of the pub and talk to everyone. “As they got older and retired she had to get rid of all the birds. When it came to Charlie I thought, ‘we can’t get rid of Charlie, we’ve had him for so long!’ So I decided I’d take him.” Although Cocky is 40 years old and Charlie is 54, both of these birds can look forward to at least a few more decades with their doting owners. The oldest cockatoo recorded, ‘Cocky Bennett,’ was recorded to have lived to 120 years of age. He died a world traveller, featherless and hideous but talked until the day he died. “Cocky/ Charlie is family,” agreed Ms Hoar and Ms Neill.

Step up to natural healing PODIATRIST Marni Gray from Foot + Leg Pain Clinics is having enormous success assisting people with foot and leg pain, injuries and degenerative issues, while helping many avoid surgery without the use of medications. Foot + Leg Pain Clinics take a holistic approach to healing and do not use harmful medications, such as cortisone and anti-inflammatories, and warn of their dangers. “Such treatments are proven to only provide short term benefits and can actually have many negative effects,” Dr Gray says. Negative side effects include increased risk of joint replacement, inhibition of tissue repair, acceleration of the progression of osteoarthritis and decreased joint space width. “With the latest medical research and treatments, we are now able to successfully treat pain, injuries and other issues better, without the use of harmful medications,” Dr Gray says. “We’re even able to assist many avoid surgery, even when they’ve been told it is their only option.” Foot + Leg Pain Clinics services are sought far and wide. They’ve been the chosen podiatrists for some of the world’s best athletes, as well as individuals who have conquered Everest, trekked to the North and South poles, set world records,

RELAX… Dr Lewin says there’’s no need to be worried about a prostate check.

Talk it over, men By TREVOR JACKSON PAIN... See Dr Marni Gray for a holistic approach to your foot and leg pain concerns. won Olympic gold medals, and those who just enjoy being fit and well. “We look past the surface symptoms to find the cause of your concerns and always aim to treat them quickly, safely and naturally,” Dr Gray said. She recommends natural treatments such as prolotherapy, a natural injection therapy for pain relief and tissue regeneration, PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma, a new technology utilising injections of your own blood, modern prescription orthotic therapy utilising flexible carbon fibre devices, strengthening and

conditioning programs, and nutritional supplementation. “If you’ve been recommended medication or surgery for any foot and leg pain or injury, try other options first,” Dr Gray said. “There are many safe, effective, natural options you can consider that are often far less costly and provide far more positive outcomes for healing.” If you have any foot or leg pain, or concerns, make an appointment with Dr Gray at the Albury or Wangaratta clinics by calling 1300 328 300.

MOVEMBER, Men’s Sheds, and blokes simply opening up and talking to each other are all playing their part in reducing the fear and embarrassment often related to prostate cancer examinations. Border urological surgeon Dr Jonathan Lewin says the Movember campaign had a two-fold effect. “I think it helps to keep it at the front of your mind,” he said. “It focuses the mind of the general population to think, ’yes, there is prostate cancer, have I been checked’, - so they don’t put their head in the sand and ignore it.” He said the introduction

of Men’s Sheds also aided the fight against the disease, by allowing men to open up in a relaxed environment. “The check itself involves a blood test, which doesn’t tell you if you have cancer, but gives an indication there may be problems in the prostate,” Dr Lewin said. “The other part of the test is, of course, the dreaded rectal examination, which, if you ask guys who’ve actually had it done, is not as bad as the guys down the pub paint it out to be. “A lot of the guys are surprised - before they are diagnosed, they’ve known nobody else with it, but as soon as they’ve been diagnosed, they talk about it and suddenly find

out they have friends who’ve had prostate cancer, they’ve just never talked about it before.” Dr Lewin said the general recommendation was for over fifties to have a checkup, but younger men were also being encouraged to speak to a doctor. “We’re recommending men over the age of 40 have a blood test,” he said. “The advantage is it gives an indication of how at risk you are of developing prostate cancer, and therefore how closely the specialist or GP may have to watch you later on.” Dr Lewin also noted the quality of treatment available now on the Border, considering it not just as good as the cities, but world-class.

Some financial planners also specialise in business needs, but unless suitably qualified, they should not advise you about your tax affairs, the law relating to estate planning, preparing a will or stockbroking. These are the jobs of other specialists. Many people arrange for all of their specialists to work together to achieve the desired result. Whether it is helping you take the steps to budgeting or implementing complex tax

minimisation strategies, a good financial planner will help you set clear goals and outline what you need to do to achieve them. Your financial planner should ask about your personal life goals and your current financial position, taking into account your current and future needs. Using the information you’ve provided, your financial planner will look at the seven key building blocks, or strategies, of creating wealth. These include, budgeting, investing, managing debt, managing tax, super, protection and social security. Based on your financial situation, your planner will suggest strategies around these building blocks to help you make informed decisions about how to invest and protect your money. They will then create a personal financial plan for you to consider and discuss. This may include a mix of financial strategies and a recommendation of appropriate products for you. Once you are happy with your plan, your financial planner will implement your strategies as agreed. But just as markets move and change, so do your circumstances. It’s therefore important to review your plan annually to ensure you’re still getting the most from your money and it continues to provide what you need. All financial planners accredited by AMP Financial Planning are authorised to provide advice on a range of financial areas. Always check with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) if

you have any concerns. Finding the right financial planner can be like finding the right doctor or mechanic. You want to deal with someone you can talk to, trust and has the right credentials to ensure your needs are met. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) recommends that you deal only with licensed people or people who are representatives of licensees, like AMP Financial Planning. Many financial planners provide a free initial consultation. You should use this to meet a few, and find one that you feel comfortable with. After all, you’re looking for a long-term relationship and your finances are very personal. You want someone who understands you and treats you as a person. The ASIC booklet, Getting Advice, provides an excellent guide to selecting a financial planner, including the questions you should ask and what answers you should expect. Seeing a financial planner can seem a little daunting. Many of us don’t know what to expect and we may also be uncomfortable opening up our financial life to someone we’ve just met. Ultimately, a financial planner’s role is to work with you to help you achieve your desired level of financial security and wealth. Understanding the general steps in achieving this can really help to lay the foundations of a successful partnership with your chosen planner.

Beechworth in tartan By KRYSTEN MANUEL OLD-FASHIONED, juicy haggis may not make your mouth water, but if Celtic music makes you kick up your kilt, Beechworth is the place to be this weekend. The Beechworth Annual Celtic Festival is in its 17th year and only getting better, with live acts from near and far, including international performers The Highlanders. “You can expect a fantastic array of really high-class Celtic talent,” festival president, Brett Cavigan said. “The headline acts would be The Highlanders and Claymore – it’s rare to get both of those guys at the same festival. “It’s a terrific line-up there if you’re into Celtic rock. The Australian Welsh Male Choir are performing a one-off concert at memorial hall - that’s a highlight. “We’ve really worked pretty hard on the market this year on aligning it even more to the Celtic theme. “The parade’s on again. We’ve got nine pipe bands, the Scottish and Irish dancing girls and the 42nd regiment will be firing blank muskets.” The parade is enhanced this year with the introduction of a massive tartan rug donated by Creswick Natural Fibres. Stalls and workshops are on all weekend, and guests are encouraged

$

CULTURE… Kilts will rise at the Beechworth celtic festival. to participate as much as possible. “We’re really hoping that a lot of people will bring their instruments,” Mr Cavigan said. “There are workshops around town that musicians will be running, mainly at the town hall. “Come along and listen to these great musicians but also, don’t be afraid to join in. Bring your fiddle,

bring whatever you’ve got, and join in!” With an expectation of around 4000 people, organisers are excited to see people from all over the country, but in particular, Beechworth’s near neighbours. “We appreciate support from our local visitors, from Albury-Wodonga, Wangaratta and all our surrounding towns.”

Ticket prices include: $75 gold weekend pass, $50 weekend pass, $35 day pass, $10 venue pass, $10 local postcode pass, $35 memorial hall pass, $70 Friday evening gala dinner, $35 Australian Welsh Male Choir. For more information, call 1300 366 321 or visit www.beechworthcelticfestival.com.au

Bendigo blues LOCALS and visitors to Bendigo this weekend will enjoy a music festival with a twist. Every music festival has its own unique focal point, but the second annual Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival has introduced a particularly clever and enticing element known as ’the blues tram’. Combining the magic of intimate and up-close live music with some of Bendigo’s best loved features, the blues tram will take patrons on a tour of the city with their very own live soundtrack. This truly unique experience offers a nostalgic ride though the city centre, showcasing Bendigo’s awe-inspiring architecture and natural features. Those who prefer to travel at their own pace will enjoy almost 100 acts over the four-day event, with the main event concert held in Civic Gardens this Saturday. Fans will be lining up to see Jackson Firebird, who, later in the month, will be supporting international stars, Nickelback. The Screaming Jets’ Jimi Hocking will also be making a crowd-pleasing appearance. With a myriad of local businesses in full support of the event, guests can expect a full-throttle family event with all the cultural trimmings of a traditional blues and roots festival. For more information, call 0418 269 306.

NATIONAL BLUEGRASS AND TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL

By KRYSTEN MANUEL MOVIE: Bachelorette RATING: MA 15+ I WALKED into Bachelorette with high hopes for a ladies version of The Hangover. I knew these boots would be difficult to fill, but none the less, I left a little disappointed. With a talented cast who played their characters to a tee, it makes for a funny, edgy chick flick, but not something that will have you falling off your chair. The plot is predictable, centring around a group of four young women, one of whom is getting married - the next day, of course. The three bridesmaids, despite their good intentions and genuine efforts, manage to ruin the dress and disgrace themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the bride â&#x20AC;&#x201C;- in a flourish of denseness and unacknowledged selfishness. The characters are designed for their female audience to relate to in some way or at some point. A kind of humorous self reflection, as we watch these four women fall over their own feet again and again. Becky (Rebel Wilson) is the bride who has seemingly settled down and struck out with a handsome, rich fiance. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) plays an uptight maid of honour who struggles to smile through her jealousy at not being first to marry. Gina (Lizzy Chaplan) is the dark-humoured, sarcastic bridesmaid who attributes her general lack of enthusiasm to her ex. Katie (Isla Fisher) is just blissfully stupid; always chasing the high, always being somewhat babysat. It may be predictable and a little painful to watch as the girls continue to step closer and closer to the point of no return, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a laugh and a half.

tured fame in the states among the country/bluegrass genre for his wailing tenor and lightning-fast guitar plucking, while Redline provide stunning instrumental support.

UP for a good-old fashioned thigh-slapping hootenanny? Join like-minded folk and flock to Harrietville next week for the 24th annual Harrietville National Bluegrass and Traditional Country Music Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a convention - a getting together of musicians from all over the country and all over the world thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available to the public,â&#x20AC;? president and founder Nick Dear said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I invented it 24 years ago. The idea was to run an event between Sydney and Melbourne to bring the musicians together as a community and have a yearly get together where we play and perform the kind of music we all enjoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge get-together of bluegrass and old-time music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its one of the few events where 65-70 per cent of those attending are actually musicians, so you get to meet and learn a lot about the style and different instruments.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we have three international acts and 26 Australian and New Zealand bands,â&#x20AC;? Mr Dear said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting about 800 people all up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People of all different ages come and try out different instruments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best instrument makers are there showing off their instruments, including Ray Black who makes mandolins and banjos, and Jo Gallagher who makes guitars.â&#x20AC;? So pull on some dusty RMs, wack on your Akubra and don your best flannie. The festival kicks off on Thursday 15 November at 7pm and finishes up on Sunday 18 November. Tickets for the whole weekend are $120, Friday $40, Saturday $70, Sunday $55. Children under 18 are free and must be accompanied by an adult.

Homes&Property �� Albury Wodonga

Country living at its best By TREVOR JACKSON FINDING a spacious country home on the Border may not be difficult, but this Baranduda property is a real hidden gem. Set back off a quiet street, this three-bedroom home offers privacy, comfort and style, in an easy-to-maintain package. The home was built to take in the tranquil setting of native trees and wildlife, with expansive grounds providing the serenity of idyllic country living. Access is easily gained to walking and cycling paths that lead to the school, pool, community centre and shops, utilising the viaduct, providing safety for the children. The front of the home, facing a wide green belt, offers an inviting country feel, featuring a full-length verandah with timber decking and two timber bay windows. Inside a spacious theme runs throughout, with wide entry and hallways.

2

A large formal lounge room takes in the peaceful view and provides ample space to entertain. A further family or rumpus is located at the opposite end of the home, allowing separation for the younger members of the family, with sliding-door access to outdoor entertaining. The main bedroom includes a walk-in robe and ensuite while the remaining two bedrooms are large with built-in robes. These are serviced by a generous main bathroom with corner spa, and a separate toilet to add to the convenience. The extra-large laundry takes care of all the family needs, with built-in storage to further enhance the functionality of the home. The main living area includes comfortable dining and a large, modern kitchen. Here youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find ample storage via a large pantry and over-

head cupboards, gas cooking and stainless-steel dishwasher, all overlooking a stunning fernery - the perfect spot to relax and take in the ambience. Tropical plants including Bird of Paradise and Stag Horns surround a deep fish pond and create your own personal nirvana. This stretches the length of the home and leads to the undercover alfresco dining/ entertaining area. Again timber decking is utilised, in both areas, with ample space for a barbecue with friends, regardless of Mother Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions. The yard is spacious, with mature conifers in place to provide privacy and a garden shed to store the tools. Two gas wall furnaces and an oversize ducted cooling unit provide year-round comfort.

‘Do it once and do it righ

Auctions – How do they work? BUYING a property at auction can be daunting and stressful, particularly for those that have never bid at auction before. With a significant amount of properties being auctioned throughout spring and summer, it’s critical to have a good understanding of how auctions work, how to prepare and how to bid. 1. Work out what the property’s worth and what you’re prepared to pay. Research recent sales, talk to agents, explore the neighbourhood and speak to neighbours. This simple strategy will help you get a feel for what you might have to pay to secure the property. 2. Get to know the selling agent. Attend other auctions and study the style and technique of the selling agent.

Take note of how people bid and notice when the property is ’on the market’ to be sold. 3. Have the property and the documentation thoroughly checked prior to the day of the auction. Arrange to have the property inspected by a qualified building and pest inspector. Ask for a copy of the Section 32 documentation for the property so that you, or your solicitor, can check that everything is in order prior to auction. 4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you’re unsure about bidding at auction get someone else, who you trust and has experience, to bid on your behalf. 5. Negotiate terms before the auction. You may be able to negotiate the settlement

period or deposit with the vendor prior to auction. This strategy may also help you gauge the level of interest in the property before you bid. 6. If you love the property don’t wait - make an offer prior to auction. Auction campaigns generally have a set auction date with the entire campaign running for a period of around four weeks. At any stage throughout the auction campaign the vendor has the right to sell their property. Therefore, to avoid disappointment, make your intentions clear to the selling agent, express your interest early or perhaps test the market by submitting an offer prior to auction. You never know - they may say yes!

SELECTION… Border cyclists Pat North, Clancy Lloyd, Stephen Damm and Rebecca Thomson ready for another training session at Lavington velodrome.

Junior cycling on a roll By TREVOR JACKSON

SIX junior cyclists from the region have been given a boost with their selection into the Bendigo Institute of Sport cycling program. Rebecca Thomson, Zoe Piera, Stephen Damm, Clancy Lloyd and Pat North from Lavington Panthers Cycling Club, and Beechworth rider Nikki Clarke have all been given the nod. LPCC coach Geoff Damm says

“it’s a pretty big deal” for the young athletes, especially given the fact the institute coach lives in Wodonga. Lyn Heritage, a former national coach, will be taking control of the program and provides a great opportunity for the local riders. Damm said the commitment of the youngsters was quite intense, with training most days. “These kids are incredibly lucky having a coach living here,” he said. “Lyn sets the programs and su-

pervises the training - it’s not coaching by email. “The coach sets a program and attends the sessions to monitor the children.” With Damm’s son now in his second year at the institute, he said he’d seen the benefits offered by the program first hand. “It gives the kids a taste of what the Victorian institute athletes do,” he said. “The academy supplies sports

MOTOR racing fans on the Border are gearing up for the Winton round of the V8 Supercars. And there’ll be plenty of eyes on the V8 Utes, with a strong local contingent taking to the track. This year the biggest team in the category, Corowabased Williams Race-Tech, will be running six cars. Wodonga driver Hayley Swanson joined the team in Tasmania and has been on the improve since then and Albury driver, Matt Chahda has been offered a drive for Winton and the following round in Sydney. The team will also be running with former Brad Jones Racing’s Jason Bargwanna as a celebrity driver. Team owner Wayne Williams is looking forward to the home round and is keen to see what young Chahda has to offer. “Mathew is somebody who we’ve seen out there, and we thought we’d give him an opportunity at the local round to see how he goes,” Williams said. “It’s a hard category to come straight into without

any practice and even be in the top 20. “When we first put Hayley in the car at Tasmania, she was five seconds behind last place. “She now races around 20th position and her lap times are as good as most running from positions 20 to 32. “She comes home with a damaged car nearly every round so that means she’s in amongst it.” And looking to the future Williams said he was keen to include Chahda in the mix next season. “I’d love to have him in the team next year, but of course it’s all dollar regulated,” he said. “If he can get the money from sponsors to run a full series, I’d be more than happy to have him.” Those petrol heads wanting to show a bit of support for the ute category can head down to Drummond Motor Sport Thursday between 7am and 9am where a couple of the cars will be on display. Drivers will be available to chat to and sign autographs, with product giveaways, including hot laps in a ute at Winton.

IT’S time again to bait up and cast off at the Lake Hume Classic. Having proved to be a successful family event year after year, organisers are predicting an event just as big as last year - or bigger. “When we compared the earlybird registrations from last year to this year, they were about the same, so we’re thinking about 500 people or more,” tournament director David McKenna said. Organisers are also hoping fish-crazy dads will use the competition to share skills and knowledge with their youngsters. “We’re hoping for more families,” Mr McKenna said. “It’s all about the kids - they’re the future of fishing.” Registration opens this afternoon between 3pm and 8.30pm at at Lake Hume Tourist Park Marquee, with the competition kicking off for the earlybirds at 6.30am. Registration includes dinner on Saturday and a sausage sizzle on Sunday, an information and promotional pack, entry into major and lucky door prizes and lures from the Lucky Lure Box for ladies and junior entrants. “We hope the weather holds out and everyone has a great time,” Mr McKenna said. Competitors - remember to play by the rules for your best shot at winning. Weigh stations close on Saturday at 6.35pm sharp and Sunday at 10.35am sharp. Fish up for the catching include redfin, trout and yellowbelly. Adult entries are $60, juniors $25 (under 15 by 9 November). For more information, visit www.lakehumeclassic.com.au

CLASSIC…Lake Hume will be buzzing this weekend with the annual fishing classic.

science, psychology, nutrition, media training and bike fitting - all those sorts of things that higher-level athletes have to deal with.” The juniors will be concentrating on two major events for the season, the state track and road championships, plus various other carnivals across the state. And with the track championships coming up at Melbourne in January, the pace is already picking up at the local velodrome.

The race that stops Yackandandah By KRYSTEN MANUEL PIT crews are working against the clock in a bid to make their dreams of grandeur a reality at the 9th annual Yackandandah Billycart Race. After weeks of preparation, dozens of polished beasts will hoon down Williams Street this Sunday, with proud parents and colleagues cheering them on. “It’s a family fun day,” Yackandandah primary principal Kathryn McAuliffe said. “The emphasis is on getting together and having fun. “Some of the dads really get into it, it’s quite competitive.” But there can only be one ’fastest cart’. Other categories include: Best novelty cart, best dressed driver, fear factor, slowest cart, the fastest woman and cart with most recycled parts. Check-in for competitors is at 8.30am, with racing under way between 10am and 1pm for preschool, under-10, under-12 and open class categories. The program will also feature a box ‘billycart’ circuit race on foot for younger children. After all the excitement, a victory barbecue will be served, with bacon and egg rolls, cold drinks, cakes and fairy floss on the menu. And it’s all for a good cause. The race is a major fund-raiser for the Yackandandah Primary School. Billy cart entry fee is $10 per cart, and the event is free for spectators. Straw bales used to mark the course will be for sale after the event for $6. For enquiries, call 02 6027 1431.

Bring it on, says blind cricket team AFTER stealing The Ashes with a clean sweep in the recent tour of England, the Australian blind cricket team is preparing to take on the world’s best in the Twenty20 format. The team will head to Bangalore, India, and face a hectic eight games in eight days round robin series. Albury-based Australian coach, Neil Mackay and player, Daniel Searle are both looking forward to the challenge, and are quietly confident of success. “After our success in England, we’re not going over to India to make up the numbers,” Mackay said. “Since winning the Ashes, there’s a lot more belief around the team.

“They’ve come away with a bit success, but now they know they have to work harder to get more.” Mackay said he expected a good reception in the cricket-mad subcontinent. “In India, they’re fanatical - it’s like a religion,” he said. “It should be a great experience.” Searle, having played a previous one-day series in the West Indies, said he was excited to have the opportunity to represent his country in the Twenty20 format. He began losing his sight at 16, after an active sporting youth. Now, at 25, he’s classed as a B1 category player, meaning while on the field he wears black-out glasses. He said the biggest disappointment about his loss of vision was not being able to play sport.

“I thought I wouldn’t be able to be involved in sport again,” Searle said. “When I moved to Albury in 2007 and found out about the blind cricket, I was very excited. “I developed a passion for it very quickly.” And being able to represent his country is the icing on the cake for Searle. “I’m so excited about going away,” he said. “I didn’t even know there were sports available like this. “It’s an amazing opportunity to play cricket in India - they just live and breathe it - I can’t wait.” The team heads to India on 27 November, with a couple of days to acclimatise, before taking to the field and hopefully bringing home another trophy.

EXCITED… Daniel Searle and Ian Mackay are both looking forward to the challenge ahead.
