It’s ‘thumbs-up’ from the siblings WHO said siblings don’t agree? Oliver and Patrick Davis – and their “little sis” Polly – went to the movies and loved what they saw, each giving it a five-star rating. To read what our school holiday movie reviewers wrote about what they watched, turn to page 17.

BIG CUT… Sue Robbins (left), Skye Weston, Kristy Hawkins and Jo Smith trim the big beard of Chiltern cyclist Rowan Bebbington.

Wait a Mo-ment By PETER SWEENEY

BIG Rowan Bebbington doesn’t shy away from much – but he didn’t look too comfortable when coming face to face with a pair of scissors and a razor blade. Rowan reckons his beard is too precious, but the girls from Sue Robbins Hair and Beauty in Chiltern

disagree. And they’ve given him a bigger reason why he should ‘dress down’ to a moustache. Chiltern will hold an inaugural Mo Ride for the Movember Foundation on Sunday, 25 November – with scenic landscape rides for amateur riders to courses for experienced road racers.

“We have rides to suit cyclists of all abilities - and offer an event a family, mountain biker or serious rider can enjoy,” organiser Matt Williams said. “I wanted to create an event that included my passion for cycling, as well as an awareness of men’s health issues.

“Five routes have been designed over two, 25, 40, 65 and 105 kilometres.” The Mo Ride is looking for Mo Bros, Mo Sistas and children. Oh, moustaches are not compulsory. Download an application form from www.chilternvic.com or contact the Chiltern Visitors Centre on 03 5726 1611.

ALBURY has a much higher death rate from bowel cancer than most places in New South Wales, while Wodonga has a much lower rate than its fellow border city - and most places in Victoria. Statistics from Bowel Cancer Australia come as the body is urging people in Albury Wodonga to “talk, test and tell” in efforts to cut the death rate from the disease. There were 63 deaths in Albury and 23 in Wodonga from bowel cancer between 2003 and 2007, the most recent statistics collecting period for Bowel Cancer Australia. Bowel cancer is the second most common cancer in Australia – and has the worst survival rate. While prostate, breast and melanoma patients share five-year survival rates of about 90 per cent, rates for bowel cancer patients languish at a comparatively low 66 per cent. And Bowel Cancer Australia is urging people on the Border – especially those on the NSW side – to do something about the disease. More than 14,000 Australians are detected with bowel cancer each year. “Doing simple things can make a difference to people’s attitudes and knowledge of bowel cancer,” BCA chief executive Julien Wiggins said. “We’re urging Albury Wodonga residents to talk about bowel cancer, to take a test and to tell the medical history of their family. “Research with 1000 people aged between 40 and 70 found just over half knew the signs and symptoms of a disease - which if detected early can be treated successfully in approximately 90 per cent of cases. “People aged over 50 should take a simple, painless FOB (Faecal Occult Blood) test at least every two years, as medical guidelines recommend.” “There was some positive news in the 5070 age group as 73 per cent knew the risk of bowel cancer increased from age 50, while 82 per cent knew home screening tests for bowel cancer were available. Despite this, less than half said they would definitely take a bowel cancer test in the next couple of years.”

IS it midday – or is it midnight? Well, if it’s light, it’s the former, and if it’s dark, it’s the latter. Simple as that. The clock on the top of The Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society Limited building on the corner of Olive and Dean Streets is no help telling pedestrians and motorists what the time is. It has been like that for a long time. In one sense the clock is striking, in another, it’s not.

WHETHER it is in a car, on a motorbike or pushbike, horse, foot or whatever, it should not be allowed to happen. Police patrolling on their own is a “nono.� There should always be at least two officers ‘on the beat’ – regardless of what and where the job is. Maybe, it’s due to cutbacks in the police budget, a shortage of staff, too many jobs on the books, or whatever, but no reason is valid enough to have just one copper on a job. No task is too trivial, and what can start as a routine house call, can end in a siege. There’s at least two reasons why police shouldn’t “go it alone.� Firstly, and most importantly, security. Self-preservation should guarantee a mate is around if the scene turns sour. Secondly, wouldn’t you want somebody around to make sure you weren’t framed, or set-up? Surely, when a cop is working on his or her own, one is open to ‘offers’, ‘temptations’, ‘baiting’. There can be a clash of evidence in what happens. As life has changed radically, so has policing. The very ‘street smart’ coppers of yesteryear had a different way of dealing with ‘baddies’. Such manner of policing is ‘out of bounds’, something many regret. While we are on police, there should be a ‘holiday’ period on high-speed car chases. You can replace vehicles, not so human beings. In pursuits, adrenalin – in both the chaser and the chased – runs as fast as the cars. It’s time for a hold on high-speed chases, to sum up the fors and againsts of them.

Mental health meeting PEOPLE with a mental health issue – and their carers – are being urged by the State Government to attend a community consultation in Albury. The session – on 19 October – will be one of many in the state to get public input on the present Mental Health Act. “Our Mental Health Act 2007 is one of our most important pieces of legislation, as through it the rights and protections of some of the most vulnerable people in our communities – those with a mental illness – are protected,” NSW Mental Health Minister Kevin Humphries said. “Public input into the review is vital in ensuring any changes to the Act reflect the needs identified by the community. “I strongly encourage people with a mental illness, carers, mental health stakeholders and the general public to either make a submission or attend a community consultation forum. “It is vital the Act ensures the most compassionate care and appropriate treatment is given to people with a mental illness - and that is why this review is so important.” The Albury consultation is at the Commercial Club at 11am. A discussion paper will be released soon. Visit www.health.nsw.gov.au/mhdao/review_nsw_ mh_act_2007.asp. LOSING FAITH… Daniel Kuzeff says he’s disappointed with the response to his fund-raising efforts to build a village in the Philippines.

Dig in to help Daniel help By TREVOR JACKSON

Mr Kuzeff is about to set off on a walk from Melbourne to Albury to attempt to raise funds. Again, not much interest – and he’s losing faith. “There hasn’t been much interest at all,” he said. “I’ve been talking to people at work for hours and hours, and I’ve only received $2000 in tips over the bar.” Should you want to help, visit www.everydayhero.com.au/buildavillageproject.

MARTIN, Collins, McDonald, King and Miller have “charged” up the ladder, appearing for the first time in the most common surname list in Albury. However, still reigning supreme in the Albury White and Yellow Pages directory is Smith. Smith heads the list from Williams, Jones, Brown, Wilson, Taylor, Anderson and Martin (equal seventh), Baker and Hall (eighth), Evans, with Collins and McDonald (10th). The most popular six names in Australia are Smith, Jones, Williams, Brown, Wilson and Taylor – exactly the same as last year. Nguyen, the seventh most popular surname in Australia last year, has slipped to 16th this year.

1033218-JF19-12

DANIEL Kuzeff is deflated and disappointed. His dream – to build a village for people on Bantayan island in the Philippines – is on shaky ground. He said just 50 cents from every person living on the Border would make it come to fruition. But all he needs to ‘kickstart’ his dream is $2800 – the cost of building a house for a Fili-

pino family. But the public response to his fund-raising efforts has been “cold.” “No-one’s donated,” he told NewsWeekly. Daniel is donating 1500 hours of his wages working as a barman at Albury pub, The Bended Elbow, to the project. And he hoped to match the $70,000 he needs, with donations from the community – reaching the $140,000 needed to construct 40 homes and a community centre.

Border bikes help needy By TREVOR JACKSON

NEEDY Africans and aid workers are reaping the benefits of old and unwanted Border pushbikes – through the Bikes for Humanity program. Bicycle Superstore at Lavington are involved in a worldwide push to provide bikes to Uganda and other areas of South Africa. Many children in South Africa walk to school, a journey of up to three hours, while aid workers use the bikes to deliver much-needed medication. Bicycle Superstores in Australia have sent more than 4000 bikes since 2008, with more than 200 coming from the Border. A container holds about 400 bikes. Containers become workshops for the required repairs. Lavington store manager Grant Norton says it doesn’t matter what condition the bikes are in, every part is utilised. “They have mechanics to fix the bikes,” Mr Norton said. “Then they teach people how to fix their bikes to keep them on the road.” Bikes from Lavington are loaded on a van and taken to Melbourne for the final leg to South Africa. “You don’t have to ring, just bring your unwanted bikes in,” Mr Norton said. “It’s a good cause. I didn’t think it would be utilised so well. “I’m quite touched how everything is so well used.”

ALBURY City Council has been granted $53,400 to buy an expanded polystyrene recycling compactor machine and storage cages. It is part of nearly $933,000 in grants to 19 businesses and local councils in NSW to facilitate the recycling of expanded polystyrene (EPS). The grants come from the State Government and the Australian Packaging Covenant, who each have provided $500,000. Grant recipients will contribute an additional $885,000. Grant recipients will help establish EPS collection services or drop-off points for residents and businesses in surrounding areas. The grants are designed to help reduce the 12,000 tonnes of expanded polystyrene which is currently dumped in landfills each year, by facilitating an innovative recycling option for foam packaging that comes with televisions, white goods and electronics.

Gerogery change MOTORISTS on the Olympic Highway at Gerogery go can faster. The speed limit has changed from 50km/h to 60km/h. Roads and Maritime Services carried out a review on the road as part of the Top 100 audit of speed zones. The review assessed a number of factors, including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data. The changes will provide more consistency in speed limits. Electronic message signs to advise motorists of the change will remain in place for at least a week. And those wishing to have a say on speed limits can do so at the Safer Roads NSW website.

Mum’s not the word here COMING TOGETHER… The Dads Playgroup has been having fun in the sun.

By TREVOR JACKSON BORDER dads have been caught out at Les Stone Park, Wodonga … caught out in the sun, that is. A small group of dads have been enjoying regular get-togethers via Dads Playgroup, an initiative offered through Gateway Community Health. The group meets in the park, allowing children to not only play and form new friendships, but to also provide an outlet for dads who may be experiencing some

form of isolation. Gateway Community Health family support worker Donna Mlejnek said they’d decided to start the program because there was little available for child-caring dads. “There aren’t any dad-specific playgroups, and there are certainly a lot of dads in a caring role in our community,” she said. “Playgroups are very much dominated by mums … that’s just the social demographic.”

The group is facilitated by Indigenous Community Links worker Harry Dennis and parenting support group worker Frank Sullivan. “It gives dads and the children the opportunity to come together and hang out,” Mrs Mlejnek said. “It gives the children a chance to work together and meet different people, and it gives the dads the opportunity to hang out and develop relationships they may not otherwise be able to. Often

there’s some isolating factors in their lives, so it just brings them out to have a yarn.” Mrs Mlejnek said those wanting to be involved in the group simply needed to be “just a bloke in a caring capacity for a child.” And a great opportunity to discover what the group has to offer is on 10 October, when a barbecue breakfast will be held in the park. Contact Gateway Community Health or Donna Mlejnek on 0457 099 904.

The power of pictures

PINK PIRATE‌ As busy as a bee.

DEBBIE Shepherd admits she has “selfish� reasons for wanting the photographic competition reintroduced into the Albury Show. “I’ve got a passion for photography,� Lavington-based Ms Shepherd said. However, all who love taking, and looking at, photographs will be winners – just as Ms Shepherd was at the show five years ago, with her photo of a bee on a pink flower. The last photographic exhibition at the Albury Show was in 2009. However, thanks to the Wodonga Albury Camera Club – and the promotion of Ms Shepherd – it is returning to the Albury Show between 2-4 November. “Our theme (for photos) is Albury. Bridges, buildings or whatever,� Ms Shepherd said. Hop onto www.waccfoto.com for more information.

The wonders of Wunderbar

AFTER 36 years of service on the Border, Wunderbar know what home owners and businesses want in windows and doors. But the product range reaches much further, with security doors, shower screens, wardrobes, glass bricks and many other products offered. The majority of their products are manufactured on-site in their Wodonga factory, right through to the powdercoated finish. One of the more popular products in recent times has been the fitting of double-glazed windows to older, established homes. Double glazing is a common inclusion in new homes, due to energy rating regulations, but older homes can still be retro-fitted. Up to 30 per cent of heating and cooling efficiency can be lost through single-glazed windows, so a doubleglazed upgrade has the potential to save money in energy costs. Complete new framework can be provided, or, if possible, your current window frames utilised, to retain the original character and charm of your home. Wunderbar are also a licensed manufacturer of Crimsafe security doors and screens. This nationally-recognised product is known to keep out unwanted intruders, withstanding the most determined thief. In fact, Wunderbar have recently fitted the product to a correctional facility – a great endorsement for the quality of the product.

Windows

Wunderbar can also design and manufacture leadlight products for your home. All sizes and shapes can be catered for, from round or conventional windows to sidelights and mirrors. Again, this product is designed and manufactured in-house, providing a personal experience second-to-none. Fully framed or frameless shower screens are available, while standard built-in robes can be retro-fitted with sliding doors to save space and add a more modern feel to a home. And there’s nothing better than relaxing on a deck or patio on a Sunday afternoon, hosting a barbecue for family and friends. But Mother Nature often has the final word. Wunderbar can provide a range of options to make your alfresco experience more functional and enjoyable all year round. Bi-fold or stacking doors can be fitted to keep the cooler weather at bay, flyscreens can be added to ensure a pleasurable experience when the weather warms up, while another popular option is the fitting of Ziptrak blinds. These cafe-style blinds are retained in their own tracks and can be adjusted up or down to any position, providing the perfect solution for outdoor living. Whether building a home, renovating an existing dwelling, or adding that much needed extension, be sure to visit Wunderbar’s extensive showroom and receive all the right advice locally - QUALITY...Production manager Jo Thorpe and business manager Lyn Martin are proud of the service offered by from locals.

Say NO to drugs

NewsWeekly’s campaign focusing on connecting the community on social issues.

THEY SAVED ME… Nikki with photos of children Reba (left) and Isaac.

Clean, in the nick of time By PETER SWEENEY

THERE are three reasons why Nikki went clean – her children. Her jailed brother has no kids – and therefore “no reason to go straight” - and Nikki understands that. “I still love him, but he’s institutionalised,” Nikki said. She has sons Sam, 24, and Isaac, 2, and daughter, Reba, 5, who, according to Nikki, are “my life.” “I put Sam through hell and have got to earn his respect back. And I’ve just got to be there for my little ‘uns,” she said. “I don’t want a man, I want them.” Nikki, 42, of Wodonga, has put her body and mind through the wringer. Not once, twice, but countless times. She is lucky to be alive – at one stage, she abused her body so badly she “used to pray to God every night that if he had any compassion, then don’t let me wake up in the morning.” Her life on the wrong side started in Melbourne when she was just 16. “I was a dancer in a nightclub and I wanted to stay awake and slim,” Nikki said. “So I started on speed (amphetamines). I was working in a scene where I didn’t have to pay for them.

“I was naïve to it all. I got them (drugs) for free and didn’t think they would do me any harm. I didn’t know about addictions. I was living on the edge … and loving it. “I got into other things. I won’t tell you all the nitty gritty, but I lived a colourful nightlife. I worked for some pretty heavy people in Melbourne.” Nikki lived with the president of a motorbike club for seven or eight years. Knowing she was addicted, she wanted out – and took off to Western Australia. But her body was craving something. She didn’t know what, but she knew she had to try something. “I was full of anxiety,” she said. Not much later, she was full of alcohol. She started buying one VB stubby at a time from the bottle shop of a suburban hotel. “I’d hated the smell of alcohol when young. That was because my father was an alcoholic, he was not a nice man,” Nikki said. “But I had to try something. The man in the bottle shop told me to buy six rather than one. I did and I got hooked. “I drank until I blacked out. I would have alcoholic seizures, I was seeing psychiatrists and psychologists and hav-

ing hypnosis. Nothing seemed to work.” Obviously, something twigged. Nikki – supported by a loving mother on the border - returned to the east coast. She spent time in a since closed women’s recovery centre in Yackandandah - “it was wonderful” - and has now got a certificate III in beauty therapy. However, her biggest assets are her “beautiful kids.” Sam’s father is in jail, and Nikki has sole care of Reba and Isaac. “People say it (going clean), cannot be done … but it can be if you want it badly enough,” Nikki said. “It’s so easy to lose respect … and it’s so hard to win it back. “If you’re lucky enough to have kids and you love them enough, you will go clean. I’m clean and sober. I have shortterm memory loss from the drink, but I’ve never felt better. “There’s a women’s group starting up in Wodonga and I’m going to talk to them. But the people I really want to speak to are the school children. I will be asking (school) principals to let me speak to them. “If my story saves one kid from doing what I did, it will be worth it.”

Picture: PETER SWEENEY.

How drug policy has failed AUSTRALIANS have “embraced” mind-altering drugs for well over a century. There have been numerous Royal Commissions, government inquiries, community debate and countless millions of dollars spent on the problem. But not only does the drug culture still exist, but thrive. It has survived law-enforcement efforts, draconian legislation, rehabilitation programs, education and many other attempts to eradicate it. According to a former top detective in the Victorian Drug Squad, most drug addicted people will admit they want to kick the habit. “But science has yet to discover a cure to addiction,” the ex-policeman, who has called for the decriminalising of illicit drug use, said. “Major drug traffickers who are parasites on our community should always be the subject of rigorous police attention.” “However, at the bottom end of the scale, do the victims of drug traffickers deserve compassion and understanding as well as the best medical treatment available – or should they be the subject of arrest and imprisonment? “Can it be argued money that goes to the police and the judicial system to prosecute users of illicit drugs, could achieve better results if diverted to scientific re-

search?” The senior ex-cop – one of the heads of undercover operations on the Border when major breaks were made – says despite Australians being better educated, more affluent and having better access to world communications than past generations, we are more susceptible to the dangers of illicit drugs. “Regardless of the efforts of educationalists, our young people ignore continued warnings of the dangers of drugs,” the former detective said. “Why is that so? “Theorists reckon the pressure of modern day existence causes young people to seek relief from the real world within the fantasy of a drug induced stupor and also blame peer pressure, a wanting to belong. “If that is the case, then our current education process has failed. “Unfortunately, in our system of prosecuting illicit drug users, young offenders may pay dearly for the mistakes of their youth, when the door of opportunity closes because of a criminal record. “Based on our history, it appears illicit drug use will remain … and as such requires innovative thinking and new directions by those in authority.”

Century of service “Life has changed a lot since then,” Judy said. “We’ve gone from cash registers to computers, but the biggest change has been with extended trading hours. “What hasn’t changed is our service. It has been well-known for being so personal as every staff member at Perls has always taken the time to talk to customers, to help them select the best fitting and best looking garment. “People are not numbers to us, they are names. “It doesn’t matter if it is the career-minded person or an elderly person who lives in a retirement home – they are all special to us. “And we are readying for the busiest time of the year for us. Spring has just started and it is the season for weddings and races. “We will be busy in our new store – but that’s how we want it to be. People are our priority.”

SOME 103 years ago, they started business life at 512 Olive Street, Albury. Now they have just moved into 554 Olive Street – after “stopovers” at 534 and 550. So if one measures success by how far and how quickly one moves, then Perls don’t have their name up in lights. But, thankfully, success in business is not measured by quick movers. It is measured, among other things, by longevity, tradition, values and culture. And when it comes to those qualities, Perls Mens and Ladies Wear is a trendsetter, a leader of the pack. “This is our third move and our fourth store,” Perls owner Judy Hayhoe said. Judy has taken over the reins at Perls from her parents, Bill and Margaret Hayhoe. The company has been a part of her life since she was 15, when she would work in her parents’ shop during school holidays.

Perl’s Bright New Location

Beginning of a business

REMEMBER WHEN… Olive Street as it was many years ago.

MEMORY LANE… Old advertising and dockets used at Perl’s.

ALFRED Perl bought the business of J.J. Brann and Co, drapers of Olive St, Albury, at a “large discount for cash.” Such was written in a preliminary announcement at the time to the public of Albury and surrounding districts. “A Perl will open with a GIGANTIC CLEARING SALE on or about SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, when all goods will be sacrificed regardless of cost,” the notice said.

“Wait for sale, when we will be prepared to give the greatest bargains ever offered to the public. Watch future advertisements.” Thursday, 3 November ended up being the official opening date. Born in Tarnagulla, a peaceful little town out of Bendigo, on 25 March, 1870, Mr Perl died in Albury on 31 May, 1942. A death notice a day later in the Argus, then the major metropolitan newspaper in

Melbourne, said Mr Perl had died in a private hospital in Albury and that the “dearly loved uncle of Nell, Ethel, Will, Fred, Les and Ray, was loved by all.” Mr Perl was cremated at the Fawkner Cemetery on the outskirts of Melbourne. (Jacob Brann, who Mr Perl bought the store from, was a pioneer businessman on the Border. He served on Albury council for three terms as deputy mayor. He sold his stock to Mr Perl when retiring).

Over 100 years suppling quality fashion and 31 years in their well-know store of Albury, Avenel hats wish Bill, Judy and the staff at Perl’s another happy 100 years in their new store. 1048036-EP40-12

Perl’s Bright New Location

FAMILY TRADITION… Judy Hayhoe has taken over Perl’s from her parents Bill and Margaret.

Perl’s, with a difference “GEE, it looks so different,” Bill Hayhoe said when he walked into the ‘new’ Perls for the first time. “It’s so much lighter, so much brighter,” Mr Hayhoe said. “But you cannot see the people crossing the road.” “You shouldn’t be looking at them anyhow,” Margaret, his wife of five and a half decades, interjects. Little has seperated Bill and Margaret, the parents of daughters Judy and Susan, since they met at a dance in Albury.

He’s 84 at the end of October, she’s the same age six days later, at the start of November. Henty-born Margaret moved to Lavington when she was seven, while Wodonga-born Bill moved “interstate” to Albury when he was just three. “They couldn’t do the wrong thing by you if they tried,” Bruce Johnson, who is with a Melbourne-based manufacturer who supplies a lot of stock to Perls, said of the couple. “For so long Bill was the shop.

“He operated Perls with so much integrity and honesty. Wouldn’t know how to do a bad turn by you Bill, he’s a wonderful man. “Just wonderful to do business with.” Bill Hayhoe is still walking around the ‘new’ shop, trying to get his bearings. “I used to be the boss here for so many years – now I don’t know where anything is,” he said. “I’ve seen so many changes over the years, mainly in fashions and colours, but I didn’t think I’d see this. It looks wonderful.”

Perl’s Bright New Location

Some man, that Alfred ALFRED Perl must have been some sort of man. The bachelor, who opened Perl and Co as a general drapery store at 512 Olive Street in 1909, gave his business away - literally. Trusted managers Ambrose Cunningham and Harry Selle were “handed” Perl and Co when Mr Perl passed away. The men ran the business with two female employees, Mrs Clark and Mrs Daisy Gill. Then 65 years ago, in 1947, Bill Hayhoe started at the company as a fresh-faced errand boy. When NewsWeekly did a feature on Perls three years ago – when the company was celebrating its centenary - Bill Hayhoe recalled that “it was nothing” for Mrs Gill to sell four dozen hats in one day. What for? The Albury Show, the social event of the year on the Border. Mr Hayhoe became the store manager, running the business for the widows of Messrs Cunningham and Selle. In the late 1970s, he and his wife Margaret bought Perls. And then it was time to move to 534 Olive St. In 1981, there was another move, to 550 Olive St, and now there is yet another move – two doors up. So recent is the shift that clothes are still in the old premises. “We will be shifting them across and have a big official opening in early October,” Judy Hayhoe said. “We may have moved three times, but our service to customers has never changed. We offer the same service today as Alfred Perl did 100 years ago.”

‘Moth’ hangs with the big boys By TREVOR JACKSON ALBURY Art Gallery has dug deep into its collection to offer the latest exhibition – Portrayer Portrayed, consisting of portraits and self-portraits of well-known artists. And one young local artist, photographer Andrew Pearce, 22, has his self-portrait hanging amid iconic displays from the likes of Russell Drysdale, Sidney Nolan and Tracey Moffatt. “When I heard about the exhibition, I was honoured,” Pearce said. “It’s really strange to have such huge names, and then mine.” The self-portrait, titled The Moth, came about through necessity, in similar style to most of Pearce’s self-portraits. “When I do self-portraits, it’s usually when there’s interesting conditions and I don’t have a model,” he said.

“It’s really a last resort, so I don’t see it as a self-portrait. I see it as trying to create the artwork with what I have at the time.” Included in the exhibition is the only known existing self-portrait of Drysdale, plus two portraits of Nolan, which mark 20 years since his death. Many of the works come from artists who, at some stage, worked in Albury, such as Max Dupain. “We’ve tried to select works that represent the different mediums,” gallery collections officer Bruce Derrick said. “Some of them are prints, some are etchings, and we have a number of works on paper. “Having a body of work like this provides the inspiration and support for local artists like Andrew to develop their careers.” The exhibition continues until 4 November.

Film on the run INSPIRATION… Bruce Derrick says the iconic portraits on display offer inspiration for local artists such as Andrew Pearce, whose self-portrait, The Moth, hangs in the exhibition.

HUNTED BY YOUR FUTURE

BRILLIANT… Scott McRae will strut his stuff on stage depicting the life of Aussie rocker Stevie Wright.

Stevie, let your hair hang down ICONIC Australian rocker Stevie Wright was a household name throughout his turbulent career. Songs such as the Wright epic, Evie, or the Easybeats’ Friday on My Mind and She’s so Fine are etched in the minds of music fans, not just in Australia, but across the globe. And Australian artist Scott McRae is bringing it all back to life. The show, Stevie, The Life and Music of Stevie Wright and the Easybeats, is described by McRae as a Rockumentary, a story told through music, stage performance and multi-media. “It’s really something that hasn’t been done, that I know of,” he said. “It’s a combination of storytelling, a little bit of acting, monologues in between all the great songs that the Easybeats and Stevie had, and into the mix as well as a bit of multi-media.” McRae said a big screen would display old film clips, photographs and other historic footage. “We also have some live interviews I’ve done with different people who had time in Stevie’s life,” he said. “Whether it be Snowy Fleet, the orig-

inal drummer from the Easybeats, Jon English, who worked with Stevie on Jesus Christ Superstar, or Angry Anderson … guys like that. “There were some very funny stories to tell about Stevie, especially with girls so it’s a combination of all those things that make it a roller-coaster ride, swinging along for two and a bit hours.” McRae said the show came about almost by mistake, while he was working between travel shows. He said while writing a new script Wright’s name popped up and he contacted him to conduct an interview, and the rest, as they say, is history. “I saw Stevie, not that my parents knew, on the steps of the Opera House with 250,000 other people,” McRae said. “That was the first and last time I saw him play … he blew me away. Thirty years later I got him in for an interview and saw what had happened to him. I just didn’t know who this guy was. He was bloated from the methadone, he’d struggled through electric shock therapy, but I didn’t know all this. I just thought, “this is not the guy I remember”. McRae said after conducting some further research he couldn’t understand why the “brilliant story” hadn’t been

Box office

told. He set about writing the script, with some trepidation, but soon had the approval of Wright himself. “I was a bit worried,” he said. “I knew I could belt these songs out, it’s my style really, but I was worried more about the story, that Stevie might be offended. “We had our first meeting in a restaurant, and by the end of the session we were singing a couple of songs together. He said “Oh man, you sound just like me”, and I thought that was a great start. “Stevie came backstage after the first show and said, “Thanks Scotty, you did that with respect” … I felt a lot better from that point on.” McRae said those attending the Albury show could expect high energy, a great story and some of the best songs ever written. “I reckon, if you released some of those songs today, you could teach the young blokes what music was really about,” he said. The production is on at the Commercial Club Albury on Saturday 6 October from 7.30pm. Tickets are $45, available online at www.commclubalbury.com.au.

Perfect five, with a change of mind By OLIVER, POLLY AND PATRICK DAVIS MOVIE: Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (PG) DURATION: 108 minutes Oliver: We went and saw Madagascar on the weekend and we loved it. Patrick: It is about Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria. They are in Africa because they were taken away from the New York Zoo. If you have seen the other Madagascar movies you’d know about that. Well they are trying to get back to the zoo and the penguins and monkeys are going to fly them there but they fly away without them. So they have to chase them to Monte Carlo Casino,

where it gets really funny because they try to hide from the people to find the penguins, but they fall through the roof and crash onto the floor so the mean animal control lady has to come to catch them and she wants to put Alex the Lion’s head on her wall. Polly: Yeah, she’s really mean. Patrick: So they hide in the circus train and pretended to be circus animals. And they made new friends. Oliver: They were really bad at the circus. But they try hard and travel to London so they can get a circus tour back to New York and they get really good. The lady is still chasing them across the country and it’s pretty funny when she shoots the lemur king in the bottom.

Polly: And the Tiger jumps through hoops. It’s very funny. Patrick: Marty is my favourite - he is funny too when he does his Afro Circus song and dance. Everyone in the audience laughed. Polly: And the girl jaguar, she comes flying in doing a trick to save Alex the lion from the cage. I liked that bit (laughing). Oliver: I give it four stars. Patrick: Out of all the Madagascar movies, this is my favourite. Five stars Polly: I will give it five too. Oliver: I change my mind – I’ll give it five too. Patrick: Heaps of people should go see it – it’s really good and they’ll love it.

Royal show from Suitcase Royale THE hilariously inventive and Green Room award-winning The Suitcase Royale are coming to the border with Zombatland, a masterfully-mad tale set in the dusty plains of the outback. At the idyllic paradise known as the Blue Lagoon Caravan Park, wombats are the main attraction, until something goes very, very wrong – a mysterious disease turning them into bloodthirsty demons. The hilarious premise is based on Australian horror movies of the 1970s and ’80s.

“Audiences should get set for a fast, furious and funny re-telling of one of Australia’s lesser-known fables,” says Suitcase member Joseph Farrell. The Suitcase Royale was a “smash hit” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year. Melbourne’s grittiest, comedic and unique multi-art-form rag ’n’ bone team go on a wild ride, packed with smokin’ live music, junkyard sets and a caravanfull of twisted humour.

Since mid-2004, The Suitcase Royale have created theatre - utilising junk left on the kerbside and the carelessly placed materials of construction sites - to create a unique visual landscape. Their work encompasses theatre, music and comedy. Constructing highly developed and complex performances that impart the simplest of tales, and composing original music, The Suitcase Royale create accessible theatre experiences for all audiences – more akin to a live music set than a traditional theatre show.

Recipients of The Guardian Critics choice award last year and Timeout (London) Critics Pick of the Week, The Suitcase Royale has also been described as ‘Tom Waits meets the Mighty Boosh’, ‘Wallace and Grommet meets David Lynch’ and a cross between the Marx brothers and a travelling tent show. The Suitcase Royale have toured extensively, received numerous awards and accolades and featured in countless festival programs in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Pittsburgh, Edinburgh, Ger-

many, Dublin and London. The four men behind Suitcase (Joseph O’Farrell, Glen Walton, Miles O’Neil and Thomas Salisbury) are working on a development with ABC TV. Zombatland is at the Butter Factory Theatre, Gateway Island, Wodonga, between 23 and 27 October. The cost is $45, $40 concession, $30 per head for groups of six and $20 for under-26 if available.

IS it midday – or is it midnight? Well, if it’s light, it’s the former, and if it’s dark, it’s the latter. Simple as that. The clock on the top of The Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society Limited building on the corner of Olive and Dean Streets is no help telling pedestrians and motorists what the time is. It has been like that for a long time. In one sense the clock is striking, in another, it’s not.

Advertising Manager: Anna Crothers anna.crothers@awnw.com.au

WHETHER it is in a car, on a motorbike or pushbike, horse, foot or whatever, it should not be allowed to happen. Police patrolling on their own is a “nono.� There should always be at least two officers ‘on the beat’ – regardless of what and where the job is. Maybe, it’s due to cutbacks in the police budget, a shortage of staff, too many jobs on the books, or whatever, but no reason is valid enough to have just one copper on a job. No task is too trivial, and what can start as a routine house call, can end in a siege. There’s at least two reasons why police shouldn’t “go it alone.� Firstly, and most importantly, security. Self-preservation should guarantee a mate is around if the scene turns sour. Secondly, wouldn’t you want somebody around to make sure you weren’t framed, or set-up? Surely, when a cop is working on his or her own, one is open to ‘offers’, ‘temptations’, ‘baiting’. There can be a clash of evidence in what happens. As life has changed radically, so has policing. The very ‘street smart’ coppers of yesteryear had a different way of dealing with ‘baddies’. Such manner of policing is ‘out of bounds’, something many regret. While we are on police, there should be a ‘holiday’ period on high-speed car chases. You can replace vehicles, not so human beings. In pursuits, adrenalin – in both the chaser and the chased – runs as fast as the cars. It’s time for a hold on high-speed chases, to sum up the fors and againsts of them.

SUV says ‘look at me’

STYLE… Hyundai’s ix35 has all the style and comfort you need in a compact SUV.

By TREVOR JACKSON I’VE never been a huge fan of the SUV, considering them over-sized and pretentious beasts, designed more for ferrying the well-heeled around the backblocks of Toorak or Rose Bay than for an off-road excursion. Having said that, I enjoyed a recent test in a Peugeot, and was eager to see how Hyundai’s all-wheel-drive ix35 stacked up. The vehicle I tested was the Elite, and it looks the part, with chrome accents, 17-inch rims and roof rails outside, while the interior boasts touches of leather and a few other creature comforts.

Keyless entry is the industry standard these days, but the Elite takes it a step further with proximity sensors, so you don’t need to remove the remote from your pocket to enter the vehicle, or to start the engine. Settling in behind the leather steering wheel was easy – a simple push of a couple of buttons electrically adjusted my seating position. Visibility was impressive, via shoulder checks and the large exterior rear-view mirrors. The stereo includes all the modern requirements with MP3, USB, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, all pumped through six speakers. With all in readiness, I pushed the

go button and the little diesel whirred into life. Coupled to an automatic transmission, the two-litre diesel is supposed to return fuel figures of 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres – not bad for a vehicle of this bulk. But I was more interested in the real-time performance. I selected ‘R’ and backed out. The reverse sensors soon let me know I was too close to another Hyundai in the yard, although no camera was detected. The diesel is not silent, but then, I haven’t heard a quiet one yet. It provided plenty of urge around Wodonga,

so I set a course for Lake Hume. I enjoy those undulating roads around the lake and they soon sort out the handling characteristics of a vehicle. While no sports car, the Hyundai proved a worthy contender and its road manners were impressive, considering the platform. Turning off the bitumen to snap a few pics and the ground clearance began to show its value. While not a true four-wheel-drive, when an unsealed surface throws up a few bumps, you can feel confident of continuing, without worry for the undercarriage. I certainly wouldn’t have taken my Falcon over that bit of road.

But these SUVs are sure to spend the majority of their lives on the tar, so the freeway was next on the list. Entering the on-ramp near Thurgoona, I chose the manual shifting mode and set about winding the little diesel up. I reached the legal limit comfortably, flicked on the cruise control and settled into the drive south. The ride was impressive and road noise negligent. I cranked up the stereo and enjoyed the cruise. In fact, over the course of the weekend, I quite enjoyed my experience with the ix35. If you’re in the market for an SUV, I reckon it’s well worth a look.

A Supercar boost MERCEDES will join Ford, Holden and Nissan in the V8 Supercar series next season - via a deal with Stone Brothers Racing. And the deal brings a female touch to the tough world of motorsport. Erebus Motorsport, a team founded in 2011 and owned by Betty Klimenko, has been dominant in the Australian GT category with the Mercedes-AMG SLS GT3. Ms Klimenko is the daughter of the late John Saunders, who co-founded Westfield with Frank Lowy. The new partnership will run three AMG E Class cars with SBR on the new Car of the Future chassis. The deal further expands the popular two-marque category, which the controlling body sees as vital to the future of the sport.

And while some purists may be up in arms, you just need to look back a few years to the old touring car days - where various other manufacturers ran their own race, albeit well off the pace - but mixing it in the same field as the V8s. Now we’ll see a real international flavour with four different manufacturers, all capable of standing atop the podium. At the end of the day, the added teams should spice up the aging format of V8 Supercar racing, providing the capacity to take our Aussie sport to an even wider international audience. INTERNATIONAL‌ Betty Klimenko and Ross Stone shake on the newest deal in the V8 Supercar paddock.

Holler for a Marshall YOU could be forgiven for thinking Marshall Batteries in Albury only cater for the family vehicle. They certainly carry a full range of batteries for that particular application, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the tip of the iceberg. Having opened the doors of their Lavington showroom 18 months ago, Kyle Wandel and Gary Poidevin have continued to grow, and now stock batteries for a huge range of applications. They cater for your everyday automotive needs, as well as specialising in batteries for disability scooters and deep-cycle/solar needs for the weekend camper. This innovative local business also caters for the industrial sector,

servicing forklift and traction batteries. Whether a small business with a single electric forklift or a larger company with a fleet of machines, Marshall Batteries have the expertise to keep your business moving. In the past, many owners of electric forklifts needed to send their equipment to the capital cities for repair, often resulting in weeks of downtime, with the added costs of freight. In most cases, Marshall Batteries can offer on-site service for your forklift battery, including a comprehensive maintenance program to ensure its longevity. Often problems are solved with a thorough clean, cable or individu-

al cell replacement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These batteries are designed so the cells can be replaced separately,â&#x20AC;? Mr Poidevin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there are a lot of things that can go wrong with a forklift battery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may notice a voltage drop, which causes the machine to go slow and affects your run time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This can be caused by cable corrosion, lack of acidity in the cells or broken weld joints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a dirty battery you can actually feel voltage coming out of it, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losing power just through lack of basic maintenance.â&#x20AC;? Whatever your battery needs, drop in to see the friendly team at Marshall Batteries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our business is to keep you moving.â&#x20AC;?

Homes&Property �� Albury Wodonga

Easy living with a touch of class MODERN, contemporary and stunning – those simple words aptly describe this featured property. Set among other new, stylish homes in West Wodonga, this three-bedroom family home is ideally situated – distanced from the CBD to provide relaxed living, close to Lutheran College and the university - and handy to the western road network, providing easy access to all conveniences. Ideal for the growing family or the professional couple wanting to entertain in style, this home is sure to impress. Street appeal is pleasant and stylish with established, low-maintenance gardens and a modern, contemporary facade. Upon entering, a feeling of space is immediate, with large tiles gracing the floors through the main living areas. The master bedroom is spacious and stylish, with a walk-in robe and tasteful ensuite, providing form and function, with a touch of privacy. The remaining two bedrooms provide ample space for the growing teens, and are well serviced by a stunning main bathroom with separate toilet. But it’s the stylish living area that catches the eye.

The expansive hub of the home continues the theme of clean, large tiles, with the kitchen designed for the most fastidious chef. Meal preparation will become a pleasure, with a 900mm wide stainless gas oven and cooktop the centrepiece, topped off with a stainless rangehood and lit by strategically-placed downlights. An island bench houses a stainless dishwasher and double sink with enough bench space to allow for interactive preparation when entertaining guests. And entertaining will be done in style via the very generous meals and living area, with enough room for the most extravagant home theatre system. The current owners have included décor that ensures the home truly shines, creating a modern, artistic atmosphere that fits seamlessly into the design. For those wanting to add their personal touches, the backyard, while well established and landscaped, is certainly open to future development. Whether an extended alfresco area or maybe a pool for the summer months, it’s all possible, in keeping with the style of the home.

Enzo Raimondo CEO Real Estate Institute of Victoria

HIGH AND DRY… A licencing proposal could hit farmers hard.

Proposal farms out trouble NEARLY 2800 Victorian farm owners face the loss of consumer protections when selling or leasing, under present national licensing proposals. The REIV is strongly opposed to the deregulation of farm sales, as thousands of sellers would cease to enjoy any consumer protections and could face worse sale outcomes. Governments have proposed that people acting as real estate agents would no longer need a licence if they were selling or leasing farms. This means that if the property were used for primary production – as is the case with almost every property outside

Melbourne and towns – it would be classed as non-residential. This is a disturbing proposition, as most farm owners and buyers are the same consumers who’d benefit from consumer protections if they were in the city. The proposals suggest farm owners don’t need the consumer protections provided to other owners, as they as ‘sophisticated investors’. Yet last year three out of four rural farm sales were priced at under $500,000. If these proposals are made law, it means if something went wrong, the seller would not be able to seek as-

sistance from Consumer Affairs; they would have to take the matter up privately - and at great personal cost, in the courts. By using a licensed real estate agent, sellers know the person whom they are dealing with has met minimum educational requirements, has access to the Victorian Property Fund and is an expert who will maximise the sale outcome. The REIV is calling on governments to reject the deregulation of farm sales and the current proposal for national licensing and go back to the drawing board.

Shop around to be home and hosed THE family home is the biggest financial investment most Australians make in their lives. Over the last decade the market for finance has become more competitive, with financial institutions offering better deals to gain more clients. The goal for most Australians would surely be to own their home outright. There’s plenty of advice on offer to reduce your debt, but a couple of simple steps can have you on the way to savings. Shopping around can have obvious benefits. Lenders want your business, and the result is a very competitive market. A minor interest rate difference can pay big dividends in the long term, providing you understand what the lender is offering. It may be worth speaking to a broker, who can point you in the right direction regarding cheaper finance. If you’re happy with your current rate, there are still simple steps you can take to reduce your debt. As with any finance, paying more a month is an obvious step. With home finance, it’s even more important. A budget plan can have a big effect on your debt levels – even a modest extra payment on a regular basis can reap rewards. But paying extra off your loan when you have spare cash isn’t always convenient - things pop up unexpectedly and the extra cash soon disappears. Setting up regular fortnightly payments is one way to achieve savings, with the fortnightly cycle adding extra payments over a monthly cycle. It’s a disciplined method that can work. A financial adviser or accountant may seem like an unnecessary step to some, but the longterm savings can be well worth the effort.

World challenge in Wodonga WODONGA’S Sports and Leisure Centre is one of more than 30 YMCA-managed Victorian recreation facilities joining Y’s basketball World Challenge on 13 October. The YMCA invented basketball and the World Challenge is a bid to have five million people around the world shooting hoops on the same day. Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre will host staff-member games, skill development programs, competitions, including round the world and free throw challenges. All activities are free and run between 10am and 1pm. Also, somebody will win six months membership by making a half-court shot. “We want people to enjoy the powerful benefits of being physically active and basketball is a great game to come together and get ac-

tive,” centre manager Andrew Mundy said. New Melbourne Tigers coach Chris Anstey is the ambassador of World Challenge. Anstey played for Australia and the Chicago Bulls in the NBA. “Basketball is a great game, especially for young people, and I encourage everybody to take part in the YMCA’s World Challenge,” Anstey said. “Who knows, the YMCA World Challenge might even unearth a future star for the Melbourne Tigers.” Basketball was invented by physical education teacher Dr James Naismith at a YMCA International Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, in 1891.

Young, old make the big time FOUR Albury Wodonga juniors have been chosen to represent Victoria at the Australian hockey championships. Imogen Albon and Brittany Rosewarne will play for the under 13s in Perth, while Maddison Horsburgh and Jessie Nixon will play for the under 15s in Canberra. Andrew Nixon has been selected to play for NSW at the under 13 boys’ championships in Nowra. Veterans from the area are also

well represented in state teams to play in the Australian Masters Championships. Nan Latta and Angela McDonald will participate in the over 35 women, Kay Drummond, Lesley Forman, Joanna Hale and Maria O’Donnell in the over fifties and Yvonne Wolfe in the over sixties. And for the men, Haydn Anderson will take the field in the over forties, Ivo Mol and David Box in the over fifties, while Mark Hulme, Dennis Martin, Bert Eastoe and Laddie Bardy will line up in the over sixties.

Oh, what an O’Neil JOHN O’Neil is the NAB AFL Auskick Volunteer of the Year for Albury – one of nearly 100 in the country honoured at a regional level. And he’s in the running to be named Australia’s NAB AFL Auskick Volunteer of the Year, named at the grand final tomorrow. The winner receives $5000 in a NAB i-Saver account and a trip to Europe with the 2013 AIS-AFL Academy. Auskick program manager

NSW/ACT, Tom Hunter, wants O’Neil’s achievement to encourage others locally to volunteer at their Auskick Centre. “It’s great to see such a deserving winner receive this award for their hard work. Our volunteers play a vital role in bringing NAB AFL Auskick to life in our community,” Hunter said. Every week, 175,000 children and their parents head to one of 2800 Auskick centres in Australia.

Go with the flow and kids Simon

Says with SIMON CORR

ICONIC... Bathurst is set to ignite the passion of Australian motor racing fans next weekend.

Mountain of a reputation LIKE countless numbers across the country, TREVOR JACKSON will next weekend be glued to the box, watching the race simply called ‘Bathurst’. He takes a past and present look at Australia’s most famous car race. FOR one weekend a year, Mount Panorama towers above all others. And while the hill may be small in stature, the race now demands the attention of motor fans across the globe. No other racetrack evokes such emotion, from fans and drivers alike. Brad Jones (of Brad Jones Racing) told me last year of his fear facing the mountain on a wet day. But isn’t that what makes it such a unique event? The sheer excitement of Bathurst captured me, like so many others, from a young age. As an Aussie, you’re a Ford fan … or you’re a Holden fan. I favoured the former. I fondly remember the Moffat-Bond one-two finish, recall Dick Johnson tackling the trees on a hot lap. And who could forget the “rock” incident that thrust Johnson’s team into folklore?

The race has the capacity to create heroes and villains alike. And whether it was Ford or Holden, there were plenty to go round. But there’s one thing most motor racing fans would agree with – the Mountain made Peter Brock - or was it vice versa? Brock had the knack of driving the course fast, no matter what make of car he entered. He took the mountain by the scruff of the neck and shook it to the core. But other drivers have stepped up, not wanting to take over as the “King”, but forging their own reputation at the iconic circuit. To me, one stands above the rest, and while he may not be leading the V8 Supercar championship, Craig Lowndes is certainly one to watch at Mount Panorama.

His style is exciting, he goes for gold, and will surely be looking to stand high on the podium after 161 laps of the mountain. Of course I’d love to see the “Blue Oval” take the top prize, and how sweet would it be if that was in the guise of local star, David Reynolds? Reynolds has the gear to get the job done, and his speed this season has been unquestionable. It’s now a matter of experience, and character. Jones Racing is a sentimental favourite on the Border. They too have the speed to be “up there”. With a little luck running their way, who knows? Either way, I can’t wait for next weekend to roll around – I know where I’ll be next Sunday morning.

AFTER three years of getting themselves up for the ultimate prize – only to be denied each season by old foe Albury – Yarrawonga could’ve been forgiven for accepting it just wasn’t going to happen. But great football teams don’t accept mediocrity - and last Sunday the Pigeons finally tasted what they had been tantalisingly close to … a premiership. All the cards fell their way with important weeks off in the finals and serious injury issues for their opponent. However, all that matters is that they have their hands on the holy grail. Hats off must also go to a gallant and brave Albury Tigers. Backs against the wall, the doubters didn’t expect them to make the big day, but they did and they did themselves proud. Despite being decimated by injury, they never refused to give up. They may have lost the game, but they won much respect. Yarrawonga were not the only winners this year. With a record grand final attendance, it’s clear the Ovens and Murray Football Netball League was well rewarded. The big names on show, and the outstanding quality of football, resulted in record crowds, week in, week out. The likes of Fevola, Hall, Rose and Davies played their role in promoting the league, but our own home-grown talent has also continued to shine through. The league has never been in a better place. So how can we top this year? Or should we even try? There are already rumours about Fevola and Bazza’s return to the league, while other notable names have been floated. However, the reality is I don’t think the clubs can sustain the yearly recruitment of high-profile ex-AFL players. It paid off big

They may have lost the game, but they won much respect...

time for Yarrawonga, but the reality is that there are very few people that have the pulling power of the big Fev. If other clubs follow that crusade, I fear it will be detrimental financially, but more importantly, damage the very nucleus of the side. Keep promoting the kids and search for talent within. Continue to play free flowing, attacking football. You have our attention, so it’s now up to you to keep us entertained. It’s tradition to hand awards out at the end of the season, so here I go. (But note, I am not sure how many coffee mugs I can get hold of for prizes.) Best Club: Yarrawonga Best Coach: Mick Caruso Most Improved: Wangaratta Rovers Best Player: Joel Mackie Most Improved Player: Brandon Symes Biggest Game of the Year: Yarrawonga’s second semi-final win over Wang Rovers, where a Hall goal after the siren would have put them in. Did I Just See That Award: Albury and Raiders full forward shootout. Andy Carey and Paddy Rose kicking an unbelievable 21.1 between them. Biggest Character: Guitar wielding Viking Pete from the Raiders (apologies to Brendan Fevola). Quote of the Year: “I haven’t tried one, I can’t stand curry,” Fevola when asked about the taste of the Fev Pie (promoted as having a bigger kick than the big fella). Player with biggest impact: Dare I say, tribunal advocate Ian Finlay … undefeated.
