VETERAN: Not so many years ago this Leopard tank was at the forefront of Australia’s defence capability. In the not-too-distant future it could be on display in Rutherglen. Business manager at the Joint Logistics Unit at Wadsworth Barracks, Peter Worsteling, says 29 of the tanks have been offered to RSL branches to become permanent displays in towns across the nation. The Rutherglen RSL wants a tank and is waiting on a decision by Indigo Shire as to whether it will approve the unusual new resident for the town. Report, another BLAIR THOMSON picture, page 2.

Government is listening to protest, says specialist


By PAT KOOPMAN THE Federal Government has given an indication that it will again look at the Border’s bid for a regional cancer centre after it announced in April that Albury Wodonga had been overlooked for a $65 million facility. The revelation was made by Border based oncologist Dr Craig Underhill at a protest rally held at the Commercial Club Albury on Saturday morning. In a show of “people power”, more than 400 people packed the auditorium to listen to Dr Underhill and other speakers.


Dr Underhill said he had been told that the Border bid for a cancer centre was not dead. “They have given us an undertaking to look at it again, which is fantastic … they haven’t said no,” he said. “There is $550 million under the first round of funding that has all been allocated. “But if they were to find some more money then they would look at our application.” Dr Underhill described that as “very encouraging”. He told NewsWeekly he was heart-

ened by the community response, which included attendees from Wangaratta and other outlying centres. “We had a broad range of people involved in the bid, including representatives from State Government,” Dr Underhill said. “Myself and others can keep lobbying the government, but I think it’s important that we get support from the community.” Dr Underhill said it was “fantastic” that the rally drew such an overwhelming response. It provided people the opportunity

to register their presence and make their disappointment known. “So if there’s a groundswell of community expression I am sure that will help convince the government to look at the application,” Dr Underhill said. Cancer now causes more deaths than any other disease per year, according to Dr Underhill. “It used to be heart disease and now that’s gone past that as we’ve been better at treating heart disease, controlling diabetes, hypertension and preventing heart disease,” he said.

Warhorses go to new homes By BLAIR THOMSON WORK to decommission 29 Leopard tanks that will be delivered to RSL clubs around Australia has begun at Bandiana. Eight staff of the Joint Logistics Unit Victoria at Wadsworth Barracks are stripping the 42-tonne tanks, rendering them safe, and rebuilding them at a cost of $11,000 each. They are scheduled to be transported to the RSL clubs later this year at an additional cost of $22,000 per machine. Rutherglen RSL has been selected to receive one of the tanks, but requires approval from Indigo Shire Council before it can be delivered. A source within the RSL, who asked not to be named, is hopeful the council will approve the plans. “We’re keen to have it in the community and we’re just awaiting confirmation from Indigo Shire to go ahead,” he said. “It would be great if it goes ahead, it’s really no cost to anyone because the army is paying for it … I’d be pretty disappointed if it didn’t go ahead.” Bandiana has about 100 of the Leopard tanks which are mostly stored under tarps after the fleet was retired from use in 2007 and replaced with Abrams tanks. Defence Material Minister Greg Combet said people would enjoy seeing the tanks, which were promised under the previous government, at the RSL clubs. “RSLs and veteran associations had shown an overwhelming interest getting hold of one of these decommissioned tanks

SUPPORT: Saturday’s rally. Picture: ROD HARDINGE

People power shows need for new centre From page 1 “In terms of morbidity … in terms of the burden of cost and the burden of lost productivity, and days off work and the impact it has on peoples’ lives, it’s head and shoulders the number one disease burden in the community.” Dr Underhill was particularly encouraged by the support at Saturday morning’s rally. “We encourage peoples’ feedback,” he said. “We know there’s ways we can improve our services … we listen to peoples’ feedback and we try and address peoples’ needs, that’s what it’s all about.” Albury Wodonga Cancer Foundation chairman Eric Turner described the response as “absolutely brilliant”. “The great part about Albury Wodonga is that if you’ve got a story to tell and you tell it well, then the community will react to that,” he said. “The great part about what we’re doing here is that it’s not over today … we’ve got to do it again.” Mr Turner said said there are 1400 cases projected in the future. “We need to come together again as a community,” he said. “We will put it on the Causeway because we need to commit to the next generation. “Our generation … we’re here now … it’s the young ones. “We need to hammer and hammer, and make sure that the powers-that-be understand that they need to be thinking about the next generation too, not just us.” Mr Turner was delighted with the show of people power. “Many, many words and just by being here is an indication that they’re interested in the community and that interest needs to be listened to, watched and observed,” he said. It was pointed out at the rally that the regional cancer centre would not just cover Albury Wodonga, but all other outlying centres, including Deniliquin, would also fall under its umbrella. Petition forms are required to be returned by Monday, May 31. A DVD from the rally and registration forms will be packaged and taken to Canberra on Martin’s Coach and presented to the Minister.

ALBURY council this week adopted a draft budget which proposes a series of rate rises over the next four years to meet the city’s immediate needs and plan for its future growth and prosperity. Councils’ draft One Year Operational Plan and draft Four Year Delivery Program will now go on public exhibition for 28 days. Submissions on the documents will be received until the close of business on Tuesday, June 22, 2010. Councillors will consider submissions before adopting the final plans at the council meeting of Monday, June 28. Three forums for the general public will be conducted during the public exhibition period to

give residents an in-depth understanding of the proposed rate rises and what projects they will fund. The forums will also explain the deliberations that led to council proposing a special variation over three years. Residents wishing to attend one of the forums are asked to register by calling Lisa on 6023 8749 or emailing The forums are: June 10, 6pm-7.30pm: Mirambeena Community Centre, Lavington. June 15, 1.30pm-3pm: Albury council’s Kiewa Street offices (Robert Brown Room). June 16, 7pm-8.30pm: Library Museum (upstairs meeting room).

ing great results from their advertising in NewsWeekly and this is very pleasing. “The new paper is getting great response from readers and we have, since the audit period, lifted distribution to 38,000 to meet increased demand – and still the market wants more. Our positive and parochial news stories are developing a real following.” NewsWeekly, owned by a group of local people, was launched on September 4, 2009, and is being distributed to residential letterboxes and a further 50 plus distribution points throughout Albury Wodonga and surrounding towns.

Meals served THE new Border Carevan served its first meal this week, three months after the original van was destroyed by fire. The van served warm food to the needy at the Australian Taxation Office car park on Tuesday night, and will continue doing so for two hours a night, four nights a week. Head of the project, orthodontist John Brabant, plans to expand the van’s services to eventually serve frozen meals.

Border business confident $60,000 insulation debt will be paid

Wait almost over

By PAT KOOPMAN THE Border Trust and Albury Wodonga YWCA Community Investment Partnership will reach a significant milestone next Wednesday (June 2). It will announce the successful projects for 2010 at a morning tea to be hosted by one of the funding recipients, the Albury Wodonga Community College. Representatives and participants from all three projects will be in attendance. Border Trust executive officer Julie Perkins told NewsWeekly it was the first allocation of grants under the partnership. “It’s a partnership that will continue to evolve under a five year agreement,” she said. “There’s $17,000 to be announced at the morning tea. “The three projects based around young women leading change in the community.” Morning tea will be prepared and served by participants in the “Eat Well, Do Well” program, which is operating from the college and funded by a YWCA grant of $10,000. Other projects to receive funding are the “Youth Leadership” program being delivered by City of Wodonga Youth Services ($2000) and the “Girls on the Go” program from YES Youth and Family Services, Albury ($5000). The event will also mark the official launch of the next round of funding … the 2011 YWCA Young Women Leading Change grants. YWCA is contributing around $23,000 each year to projects in the community.

By BLAIR THOMSON NOT long ago, cystic fibrosis was a vicious disease that meant an early death for its sufferers. Now, thanks to modern science and research, treatment for the disease is making it much more manageable. To help raise funds to research the disease and support those that suffer from it, the Border Cystic Fibrosis Group will have its major fundraising event on Saturday night with a cocktail party at the Commercial Club. Jodie Cornish has helped organise the event and said it played a vital role in helping sufferers like her son, Thomas. “The money we raise stays on the Border to help the kids here that have cystic fibrosis,” Ms Cornish said. “This area has the highest rate of the disease in regional Victoria, so it’s important that we raise funds. “It’s actually the most common genetic disorder.” The group provided a trampoline for 23-month-old Thomas who, like other sufferers, requires lots of exercise. “He doesn’t look sick and that’s because of all the medication they have today to manage it,” Ms Cornish said. “Their life expectancy is now 37, whereas 10 years ago it was 18. “But he needs lots of exercise every day.” For more information on the event call Mark Blackney on 0400 913 992.

Mrs Jackson said the three months since the scheme was stopped had been tough. “I think it’s ridiculous the effort we’ve had to go through to get it sorted … we shouldn’t have to fight this hard for something that’s their fault,” she said. “We and the other installers are constantly on the phone, there’s no communication lines and no communication from Mr Rudd and Mr Combet’s offices.” Mrs Jackson, who was notified by text message on February 19 that the scheme had been scrapped, said dropping the scheme set their 10year-old business, United Entity, back many years. “It’s pretty much set us back to where we were five or six years ago,” she said. “But, with a little luck, hopefully it will all be sorted out soon.”

Women’s projects win cash

By BLAIR THOMSON KELLIE Jackson is confident the $60,000 she and her husband, Daniel, are owed by the Federal Government from their botched home insulation scheme will soon be repaid. Mrs Jackson led a rally in Canberra earlier this week to demand answers from the government after the home insulation scheme was scrapped with little warning in February. After meetings with a representative from the Department of Environment and Flinders MP Greg Hunt, she is now confident their business will soon receive the money they are owed. “They said they’d get the payments processed and we’d get paid in a couple of weeks,” Mrs Jackson said.

Dose of Dorin

THERE’S been two prime examples of “people power” within the space of just a few days. The first was in Albury last Saturday when more than 400 people answered the call to protest against the Federal Government’s decision not to allocate a $65 million regional cancer centre for Albury Wodonga. People joined as one as they voiced their disapproval and signed petitions to be delivered to Canberra. Young and old, male and female, offered a united front. It could well be likened to a case of “David versus Goliath”. But it must be remembered that these very same people, either directly or indirectly touched by cancer, are the ones who vote governments in ... and also vote governments out. The decision-makers would do well to heed the message in an election year! Albury business woman Kellie Jackson also spearheaded another example of people power in our national capital on Monday. In what was a third such protest rally initiated by Kellie, she again highlighted the plight of insulation installers following the decision by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to scrap the insulation program. She is now more optimistic the around $60,000 owed to her and her husband, Daniel, will be paid by the government. It gives added hope to people power.

All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else. ~ Mae West

The world game is coming Soap BOX WITH


AUSTRALIA will shortly be in the grip of football fever, but it will have nothing to do with the AFL. Instead, the focus will be squarely on the round ball version … in other words “the world game”. Fans had their first taste of the 2010 FIFA World Cup fanfare when the Socceroos hosted New Zealand in a “friendly” at the MCG on Monday night. Australia snatched a 2-1 victory with virtually the last kick of the game in its final home appearance before the World Cup. But in many ways the result was immaterial. These matches are designed to fine-tune teams in the lead up to the World Cup when South Africa will take centre stage. Harry Kewell, Mark Schwarzer, Scott Chipperfield, Brett Emerton and our very own Josh Kennedy did

not take to the field, while Tim Cahill played just the first half against the All Whites. A crowd of more than 50,000 attended the game at what is generally regarded as the sacred home of Australian Rules football. And this brings me to my point. While the AFL makes inroads into the heart of rugby league territory with two new expansion teams over the next two years, the biggest threat to its dominance on the Australian sporting landscape could well come from the world of soccer. The Socceroos have the opportunity to become heroes to a nation when they take to the grounds in South Africa. The likes of Kewell, Cahill, Schwarzer, Kennedy and skipper Lucas Neill are already household names. Television coverage, whether through the English Premier League or our domestic A-League competition, has generated far more exposure and taken the game to new levels in Australia. The FIFA World Cup is arguably recognised as the greatest sporting event in the world, although the Olympic Games may well give it a run for its money.

The fact that Australia and New Zealand will be represented on the greatest stage of all is sure to evoke a sense of national pride and lift the exposure of the game even further. Even those who do not generally follow the game will almost certainly “adopt” the Socceroos and throw their support behind our national team. It is widely regarded that Australia has been included in one of the toughest pools. The Socceroos meet Germany first up on June 13 and also have to face Serbia and Ghana in the group stage. Imagine the euphoria should Pim Verbeek and his players get over the might of one of the world’s leading soccer powers. Australians love their sport. There will almost certainly be many, many converts to the world game following the World Cup. And that poses a problem for the powers-that-be in the AFL. In the year of the World Cup, don’t be surprised to hear more soccer talk around the workplaces and schools of our nation. AFL has tried to take its brand to the world through exhibition matches. It is a fact that Australian football pales into insignificance on the

world scene when compared with soccer. Don’t be surprised to see many of our youngsters starting to wear far more Socceroos merchandise as a result of the World Cup. Don’t be surprised if more post-

ers of the likes of soccer superstars Kewell, Cahill, Schwarzer, Kennedy and Neill also start to adorn their walls. A new breed of national sporting heroes could be just around the corner.

ON THE MARCH: The Socceroos will be in the spotlight in coming weeks.

A helping hand for newcomers KRISHNA-Maya Sapkota is the recently appointed bicultural support worker for the Albury TAFE Children’s Centre. Part of Krishna’s role includes helping children with the initial settling period and providing initial language assistance to children, parents and staff. The service is free of charge for eligible services and is for a limited time period. A request was originally made from Albury TAFE Children’s Centre director Julie Carpinelli for bicultural support as the centre had a large number of Bhutanese families enrolled in the last 12 months. “Their wonderful inclusion support facilitator Helen Clifton has worked with the centre staff by providing a range of practical supports, including advice and resources,” she said. “Staff at the centre were very excited and fortunate that one of the parents at the service, who is presently studying for her Certificate III, was able to apply to be a bicultural worker for the service. “This is the first bicultural worker appointed in Albury.” Krishna has been involved at the centre as the bicultural support worker since May 13. During this time she has supported the staff to settle a recently enrolled child who arrived in Australia from Nepal, with his family, in February. “The staff and children have been impressed with Krishna’s beautiful singing voice, which is so soothing and comforting,” Ms Carpinelli said. The centre took part in Child Care Week 2010 this week. “It acknowledges the benefits that our centre and other child care centres across NSW provide to children, families and local communities,” Ms Carpinelli said.

Caring for kids in need

By PAT KOOPMAN STORE manager Tony Moxey and his team at Officeworks in Albury have big hearts … of that there can be no question. The store made a significant and particularly generous donation to assist with the establishment of the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the Wodonga Hospital. A computer, printer, office desk and chairs, shelving and filing cabinet were all donated through the generosity of Officeworks. It was a tremendously satisfying feeling for all involved at the store, according to Mr Moxey. “We’re committed to helping local charities and initiatives in the region that help to build a strong sense of community,” Mr Moxey told NewsWeekly this week. Mr Moxey said childrens’ health affected all families. “All our team at Albury have families … we saw this as a great way of getting involved,” he said. “We saw it as an opportunity to donate the office space so that Ronald McDonald House could get on with their operation and that way they’re directly helping families in need.” The contribution by Officeworks played a significant role in the establishment of an office. “It’s somewhere that they can do their work from, but also still focus on the families they’ve got in the house,” Mr Moxey said. “We saw an article in the paper and I took that to the team … some of the team actually bought it to me as well. “Childrens’ health is a

community focus and we saw it as an opportunity to help out. “Children are the future of the nation and with our local community we wanted to help out that way.” Ronald McDonald program co-ordinator Maureen Nicholls expressed her gratitude. “It was very generous,” she said. “The office was set up long before the house was furnished because I was here working doing the learning program and thanks to Tony we were able to get it together in a hurry, so that I could move in and start working before the family room became functional,” she said. “The family room is joined directly onto the maternity ward and families who have a sick baby in special care nursery can make use of the facility. “Since the end of March we’ve been able to offer overnight accommodation and we’ve provided 54 nights of accommodation for families.”

These families have come from as far away as Tocumwal, Yarrawonga, Benalla and Holbrook, while it is also a facility utilised during the day by people who live locally. Ms Nicholls said two programs were run from the site. “There’s the Ronald McDonald Family Room, which is accommodation and a day facility for families who have a baby in the special care nursery. “Local families can use it during the day time and people from out of town can stay overnight.” Ms Nicholls said the other facet was the learning program. “That’s for school age children who have had serious illness, missed lots of school and had long hospitalisation,” she explained. “We organise to have a tutor to work with them for 12 months to help them catch up on school. “So that all happens from the office which has been furnished by Officeworks.”

Dinner was real winner THE 2010 Harvest Festival Gala Dinner at Beechworth was an outstanding event. NewsWeekly food writer and ABC food broadcaster Barb Lowery hosted the evening, supported by a team of professional hospitality trained volunteers who planned the dinner over many months. Chef Michel Renoux prepared a dinner showcasing local produce, including pork, lamb, chicken, trout, chestnuts, fruits, vegetables, olives, nuts, olive

NATALIE Watkins was announced as the 2009 outstanding apprentice of the year at the Riverina Institute’s recent Awards for Excellence presentation. Natalie first began working in restaurants as a part-time kitchen hand while she was studying medicine. Once she got a taste for cooking, she was completely hooked and knew she had to become a chef. She threw herself whole-heartedly into her new career direction, immersing herself completely in cookery and her studies. Natalie completed her apprenticeship and the Certificate III in Commercial Cookery course with distinction. Natalie is both passionate and dedicated to her trade, and as such she’s always looked to compete and learn at every opportunity.

Reconciliation week a time for all of us to acknowledge that Aboriginal culture is an ...

Important part of our community EACH year National Reconciliation Week celebrates the rich culture and history of the First Australians. It is the ideal time for everyone to join the reconciliation conversation and to think about how we can help turn around the disadvantage experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. May 27 marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum in which more than 90 per cent of Australians voted to remove clauses from the Australian Constitution which discriminated against Indigenous Australians. June 3 marks the anniversary of the High Court’s judgment in the 1992 Mabo case. The decision


inspector LYNELLE RODWELL recognised the Native Title rights of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original inhabitants of the continent and overturned the myth of terra nullius – the belief that the continent was an empty, un-owned land before the arrival of Europeans. The NSW Police Force continues to recognise the important role Aboriginal people have in the

identification and ownership of justice issues and developing solutions in keeping with the principle of self-determination. At Albury we acknowledge Aboriginal people as the original owners of the land we call Australia and particularly the lands now known as New South Wales. We also acknowledge that the Aboriginal people of NSW are not one generic group but that they make up many different groups with their own unique languages and customs. Aboriginal people have a rich and diverse culture that has survived for thousands of years in a harsh environment. Aboriginal people learned from the land, lived

off the land and waters and maintained the natural environment. A resurgence in Aboriginal languages, cultural beliefs and customs is now being seen in Aboriginal communities and a greater acceptance and understanding of culture is being experienced by non-Aboriginal Australians. We recognise that our unique role provides us the opportunity to promote positive outcomes for Aboriginal people and we work towards achieving the following in the spirit of reconciliation: We acknowledge Aboriginal history, culture and tradition at every opportunity and wherever possible in our workplace. In the application of our duty


we are mindful of the cultural differences among Aboriginal peoples and between Aboriginal people and the wider community. We strive to ensure an environment free of racial discrimination and harassment for our Aboriginal employees and the Aboriginal community we serve. We work with Aboriginal communities and other justice agencies to investigate the implementation of culturally appropriate policing strategies for Aboriginal communities and seek the cooperation of Aboriginal people in their promotion. The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2010 is Reconciliation: Let’s see it through!Â

Life dedicated to helping others

WODONGA Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May Eagle Award has been presented to Barbara â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gwenâ&#x20AC;? Blazely. The award recognises people within the community who are making someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life better by getting involved in the community and helping others.

VOLUNTEER: Mayor Mark Byatt with Gwen Blazely at the presentation of the May Eagle Award.

Gwen has been volunteering in various capacities for the Red Cross for 12 years. She is currently the Australian Red Cross medical patient transport convener and has been active in this volunteer role for four years. She co-ordinates 20 drivers and runs the busiest, most productive single car service in Victoria. Gwen runs this service out of her own home and spends a minimum of 40 hours a week co-ordinating this service. The Red Cross patient transport is a service that provides transportation for the vulnerable and needy within the community. At an age when many people have retired, Gwen serves her community selflessly and works hard to ensure that, among other needs, several dialysis patients get their necessary transport to Wodonga Hospital three times per week. Prior to becoming the transport convener, Gwen was the co-ordinator of two Red Cross shops over an eight-year period. Gwen also works as one of Wodongaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school crossing supervisors, an important role that she has held for the past 11 years on top of her voluntary work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gwen, and other volunteers like her are so essential to the life of our community and without their involvement many organisations such as the Red Cross would not be able to provide the services that they do,â&#x20AC;? Wodonga mayor Cr Mark Byatt said when announcing the May award.

Chinese art feature of latest display INSTALLATIONS, video projections, paintings and sculptures by 14 of Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most notable contemporary artists are showing at Albury Art Gallery. The exhibition, Zhongjian: Midway, includes work by Guan Jian, a former poster artist for Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liberation Army who presents this style of propaganda art in a contemporary context. Also featured is work by sculptor, Ah Xian, who immigrated to Australia in 1990. His intricate and delicate work explores the spirituality of ancient China and the contemporary Western world. Five artists are Chinese nationals living and working in China, four are Chinese-born

artists living and working in Australia, and five identify themselves as Australian artists whose work has been influenced by Chinese culture. Artists featured are Guan Wei, Liu Xiao Xian, Guo Jian, Jin Sha, Xifa Yang, Sally Smart, Kate Beynon, Lionel Bawden, Laurens Tan, Julie Bartholomew, LĂź Peng, Shen Shaomin, Liu Qinghe and Zhang Qing. Also now showing at the gallery is Water in a Dry Land, an exhibition of works by Indigenous artists from the Murray basin. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;always unfinished business of singing the countryâ&#x20AC;? is the theme running through the exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30 sculptures, paintings, lino cuts and prints.

TAFE doing its bit for environment WODONGA TAFEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students are doing their bit for the environment by becoming one of the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;sustainable classroomsâ&#x20AC;? on the Border. The 16 Diploma of Events students participated in the experiment with the help of teacher and environmentalist, Steve Onley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students calculated their carbon footprint and then calculated how much offsetting they would need to do to make the six-week subject carbon neutral,â&#x20AC;? Mr Onley said. During the experiment the class calculated the emissions from activities, including driving to and from class, using computers and projectors, and lighting and cooling. The students planted 40 trees on the campus, each with an estimated 80-year life

cycle to offest their emissions. Wodonga TAFE is taking practical steps to become a sustainable campus. Some of the actions that have taken place so far include: Installation of 120 Photovoltaic cells producing 20.1kw/h; solar lights in the car park and around the campus. They also retro-fitted all energy inefficient lights with energy efficient units in all buildings and installed lighting and electricity control where appropriate (toilets, zip boilers). Water tanks to all buildings have been plumbed to toilets and toilet cisterns were replaced in all buildings. This will reduce water usage from 15 litres per flush down to six litres.

Mushrooms ~ a ‘Umami’ experience


HAT is Umami? It’s the fifth recognised “taste” and one the Japanese define as distinct from sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Umami imparts a robust, savoury and meaty sensation and this natural flavour enhancer is produced by the presence of the chemical, compound free glutamate. Glutamate, a glutamic acid and one of the most abundant amino acids in food, is to umami what sodium chloride (table salt) is to saltiness. Glutamate is abundant in mushrooms, so their “meaty” flavour and texture makes them a great substitute for meat in vegetarian dishes. The Australian mushroom industry has come a long way when you consider we can

Foraging for mushrooms RECENTLY my friends Miki Francki and Carolyn Fry went foraging to a secret forest and returned with a basket-load of super-fresh mushrooms including pine mushrooms, slippery jacks and bay bolete. These excited foragers are experienced, so no problem in eating any of their bounty. In our North East Victoria region, many people forage for wild mushrooms in forests. However, it’s wise to check out your favourite greengrocer or farmer’s market first and become familiar with the appearance of wild mushrooms, so you know the goodies from the baddies. While it’s fun, foraging for mushrooms can be likened to Russian Roulette as many people are poisoned each year from “suspect” mushrooms and victims can even be paralysed. Make sure you go with someone experienced. In France, people line up at pharmacies to ask the chemist to identify wild mushrooms. Many pharmacies also display a chart in the window identifying mushrooms safe to eat. In the absence of a friendly pharmacist to identify unusual mushrooms, invest in a good reference book. Miki Francki recommends: “The Pocket Guide to Mushrooms” by Jean-Marie Polese (publisher Könemann) or “The Ultimate Mushroom Book” by Peter Jordan and Steven Wheeler (publisher Hermes House) and there are many other excellent references. Dymocks in Albury would be helpful. Of course any “wild” mushrooms you buy from a greengrocer, supermarket or farmer’s market will be safe to eat.

buy about 14 varieties of fresh mushroom. Mycologists are striving to cultivate more mushroom species to make them available all year round. Specialty mushrooms include white, yellow and pink oyster mushrooms, shimeji, enoki, king brown, shiitake, black wood ear and chestnut mushrooms.

A dieter’s dream Mushrooms have no cholesterol and virtually no fat. They contain protein plus a good level of fibre and vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin), minerals and vitamin B that’s not found in plant foods. They are a dieter’s dream as they taste so good and can be used in so many dishes.

Button mushrooms (agaricus bisporus)


First grown in caves near Paris, these are the most popular variety and 98 per cent of mushrooms consumed in Australia are agaricus. Pearly white in colour and mild in flavour, they can be used in sauces, salads, pizzas, stir-fries, stuffings, vegetable, pasta and noodle dishes or barbecued. Being a white mushroom has its advantages for salads and sauces. To keep them bright and white during cooking, add a splash of lemon juice or white wine. Button mushrooms grow into cup mushrooms.



PINE MUSHROOMS: These were collected by Miki Francki and Carolyn Fry. Picture: BARB LOWERY

Pine mushrooms

butter and grilling or barbecuing, or stuff them with goat’s cheese and rocket or ricotta and spinach and bake.

Pictured above, these are grown under pine trees and known also as “milky saffron”, due to their milky orange sap when cut. Burnt orange in colour, they have a smooth top and orange gills, are “meaty” in texture and have a delicious robust flavour. Saute´ them in butter and finely chopped garlic, adding a little chopped thyme. They also barbecue well.

Flat mushrooms Known as the “breakfast mushroom” and not to be confused with earthy black field mushrooms, these have rich dark gills and caps are opened out flat. An ideal mushroom for cooking and barbecuing. Great in a light tempura batter and served with a soy and ginger dipping sauce. Chop them finely, add garlic, olive oil and herbs and use for crostini.

Shiitake (oak, Chinese black or black forest) An absolute favourite of mine as they make a real flavour statement. Cultivated in China, they have an intense flavour, fine tan gills and woody stems and are available cultivated fresh, and also dried from Asian stores. When dried, they need to be soaked in warm water for 15-20 minutes and you need to discard the leathery stalk, but remember to use the soaking water (filtered) in dishes for extra flavour. Match shiitake mushrooms with strongerflavoured meats such as aged beef, kangaroo, duck or venison.

Swiss brown (cremini/honey brown) and portabello Have a tan-brown cap, a more intense flavour and firm texture so are perfect for marinating, adding to pasta, pilaffs, risottos, pies or curries. The Swiss brown matures into the portabello.


Field mushrooms

These elegant European wild mushrooms that I’ve enjoyed so much in France, have tall honeycomb-like caps and a fabulous earthy yet delicate flavour. Pan-fry in butter or use in sauces and slow-cooked dishes.

These are more often picked in a paddock than sold through retail, as their moisture content is high and keeping quality limited. With an intense, earthy and gutsy flavour they are perfect for brushing with a garlicky

VARIETIES: Mushrooms come in many varieties.

A rose by any other name …...

Gardening GURU




THERS lament that roses have thorns, but I rejoice that thorns have roses. Alphonse Karr penned such a sentiment well over 100 years ago in an age when old world or heritage roses of many kinds were grown. From antiquity the rose has been a treasured garden flower, evolving from the most simple, single flowered specimens such as those depicted on a c1480 BC fresco in the palace of Knossos in Crete. Rosarian and garden author, Roger Mann declares that we gardeners of today are living in the golden age of roses being heirs to the wonderful heritage of the many Old World varieties, the loved post War modern Hybrid Teas and the new ranges coming from breeders such as the French Guillot and Delbard firms and the Englishman, David Austin. Leading the foray of “new roses for a new age” after the war was “Peace”. From the Meilland stable, this giant yellow and pink rose has remained a best seller, the “rose of the century”. In fact, as many of the voluptuous varieties of the 60s and 70s were bred for style and the show bench. The qualities of high centred, pointed buds and exciting colours often took precedence over perfume and thus stirred a

movement by many gardeners to reclaim the Old-World or Heritage roses. Starting with the most beautiful, spring flowering “ Constance Spry” in 1961, David Austin has crossbred old Roses with Modern Roses to capture the best qualities of both. The old world gracious charm and rich sensual perfume combined with the modern continuous flowering and wider range of colours has given us a glorious group of roses simply called “English Roses” but which could well fall into the category called “Nostalgia Roses” by the Germans. Apart from harking back to an older era in their often cupped and quartered shape, most of the English Roses have the most beautiful perfume. David Austin recognises five categories of rose fragrance, such is the emphasis he places on this desirable quality in roses. The delicious fruity fragrance of “Jude the Obscure”, the strong Old Rose fragrance of Gertrude Jekyll and others, the classic myrrh perfume of Constance Spry and many another, the strong Tea Rose fragrance of Golden Celebration and the blend of musk, myrrh and old rose as in quite a number of varieties. This winter sees the introduction in Australia of a superb new David Austin Rose, “Munstead Wood”, named after the garden of designer and author, Gertrude Jekyll. This is a rose, large and cup shaped in flower, with a strong Old Rose fragrance with a fruity note. The colour is a light crimson in the bud, but as the centre gradually reveals itself, it becomes a very deep velvety crimson.

NEWCOMER: “Constance Spry”, developed in 1961, is the first of the new English Roses.

Bazza and Stevo - look-alike Beechworth icons




HE Child Bride and I fell on our feet last week with a couple of last minute cancellations for the Harvest Celebration Dinner at Beechworth – after some urgent re-organisation of the appointment calendar, a quick booking of what was probably the last bed in Beechworth, off we went. Part of the harvest weekend included a mini bus tour of three vineyards (Sorrenberg, Pennyweight and Amulet), with an opportunity to taste the range of wines with the winemaker as well as enjoying some local produce to match. Now the CB and I are not ones for visiting vineyards – in our experience you can waste a lot of time before zeroing in on only a few bottles of interest. The real temptation on this occasion was that Sorrenberg rarely opens its doors to visitors, Pennyweight has been on my “to do” list for years, and I was curious to see the Amulet operation. So, after a couple of very pleasant hours on Saturday wandering around the open-air market and chatting with winemakers (as one does), it was off in the bus with 15 other like-minded wine lovers.


First stop was Sorrenberg Vineyard close to the town boundaries. A little information about Sorrenberg – although it has been around for in excess of 20 years, the vineyard and its winemaker, Barry Morey, have always been something of a “mystery”. I had the pleasure of listening to Barry speak years ago in Beechworth, and was struck by the casual and self-effacing manner of this quiet achiever. Having tasted his range of wines (and a lot of them many times over), I was taken with the sheer quality of product from what is arguably a “small” operation. It’s quaint “oldie-worldie” labels have remained unchanged since day one, but the wines have been consistently high in quality (and so often hard to source). Now Barry Morey is a very interesting character. He is a perfect example of “what you see is what you get”, with absolutely no pretensions or delusions of grandeur. He greeted his bus load of guests resplendent in work boots, shorts and terry-towelling hat – this is not a man who “dressed to impress”. But you know what? No one really cared! One of my fellow travellers remarked (kindly, I might add) that Barry is a perfect clone of Gilligan of “Gilligan’s Island” fame. Within five minutes, Barry started to work his magic with a fascinating walk through his (organic) vineyard, with its many surprises (including what must have been an extraordinarily expensive wind fan of huge propor-

tions that is used for clearing frost from the vines). Although the vineyard is relatively small in size, Barry’s reputation in the wine marketplace is certainly large, and I regularly see his products on the wine lists of some pretty flash restaurants in the capital cities. We then headed for a tasting in the original cellar under the family home and I listened with fascination as Barry quietly and professionally spoke of each wine – no flowery words, no self-serving statements – just plain and accurate facts, as well as good old common sense tips and information. I watched Barry field questions from the group, many of which would have been perfect springboards for some self-congratulatory comments. Each time, Barry chose not to pat himself on the back but rather spoke objectively on the wines, delivering information without any praise for himself as the winemaker. I reflected that a few high flying corporate winemakers I have met could take a leaf out of this bloke’s book.

The bee’s knees drop

The highlight of the tasting was Barry’s flagship wine (in my view, anyway) – a wine labelled “Gamay”, but which he says has around 10% Pinot Noir blended in. Now, Barry, I do have a “bone to pick” with you… About 15 years ago I was given a masked bottle and had to pick the grape variety. I was so utterly convinced about my choice that I bet the owner a bottle of French Burgundy on the result, because that is what I believed it was – beautifully structured Pinot Noir as only the French can do. Then total dismay when the wine was unmasked and found to be Sorrenberg Gamay – not to mention the cost of the bottle for losing the bet! I could not believe that I had got it so wrong – Barry’s revelation during our tasting that Pinot Noir is mixed into the blend gave me some measure of comfort, but a lost bottle is a lost bottle. That said, there are not too many other Aussie bottles that would shape up with such quality. No wonder Barry’s Gamay “walks out the door” even at around $40 a bottle (read “$100” at any restaurant of note). What is particularly impressive is that although Gamay is the classic grape of Beaujolais (France), it tends to be viewed with disdain by many wine lovers. It is a credit to Barry that he has been able to produce such a stylish wine from the blend.


From the green lush vineyard of Sor-

renberg we travelled to Pennyweight, with its dry landscape and beautiful gum trees. Once more, a “rustic” winemaking operation replete with galvanized iron sheds, delightful open-air work areas, ancient concrete fermenting tanks and the odd sleeping dog. We were greeted by Stephen Morris, and later we met his wife, Elizabeth, in the tasting room. Within minutes I was reflecting on the amazing similarities between Stephen and Barry Morey. Again, with Stephen there were no pretensions and once more you very much “got what you saw”. I observed to the Child Bride that Stephen was a quintessential “man of the bush” with his strong angular features, humble demeanor, wiry frame, even down to his droopy moustache. As our bus driver (Pat) accurately remarked “He’s just like Henry Lawson”. Along with this colonial visage came great humour and a twinkle in the eye – it was a delight to listen to Stephen speak with such fervour and deep affection about his vineyard. But the similarities did not end there – Stephen was also “into” organics, an early pioneer in biodynamic winemaking at a time when it was very unfashionable and undoubtedly expensive for him to become accredited.

Sherry – wine to die for

These organic practices certainly reflect in the purity of his wines. Where Barry’s flagship wine is Gamay, Stephen’s flagship wines are his delightful Sherries. It is timely to mention that Sherry making has been regarded in the wine industry as a great way to turn a large fortune into something smaller. That said, deep down many winemakers harbor a desire to make Sherry, because it sets a high benchmark in winemaking skills and there is also the warm fuzzy feeling that you are keeping up a wine style that is in danger of disappearing. But, most wine drinkers have only had limited experience with Sherry, seeing it come from a flagon, maybe forcing down a life threatening glass at an aunt’s wedding, or noting that the bloke lying on the nearby bench seems to have a bottle of it in a brown paper bag. To put it bluntly, in the wine consumer world, Sherry is regarded as a “dud”. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Sherry is an art form in the true winelover’s world, and the celestial choirs burst into song when a lovely old Amontillado (medium dry) Sherry is used to wash down a bowl of creamy pumpkin and chestnut soup (with crusty bread) on a cold rainy

winter’s night. It is credit to Stephen and Elizabeth that they have persisted so long, and worked so well, to maintain this unique wine style. I have no doubt that they have done so in the face of consumer resistance, smirks from their competitors, and (I would guess) nasty letters from their bank manager. At a time when even a major bastion of Sherry production in Australia (Seppelt’s in South Australia) has sold off its Sherry stocks (no doubt because the weight of objection from shareholders and accountants became too great) we still have scattered here and there people like Stephen and Elizabeth, their relatives down the road at Morris Wines in Rutherglen, and a sprinkling of other dedicated people who maintain this magnificent wine style in the face of such challenges.

Family connections

So, Bazza and Stevo are definitely different blokes, but they share so many traits. I forgot to mention that each has a rich family winemaking history, and “the grape” is very much part of their individual DNAs. Stephen and Elizabeth are blessed with three sons that have “come on board” and will maintain the tradition (as well as probably giving Stephen grief about how the vineyard should really be run!), but Barry has no such luck – his children are spread far and wide including a daughter who is training to be a pilot to (as Barry describes it) “get as far away from me and the vineyard as she possibly can”. Here we have two totally different yet so alike winemakers – each producing unique wine products that enhance the reputation of Beechworth in the wine world. And they both do so with hardworking, no bull dust, down to earth winemaking operations. I commented to one of my fellow travellers that I thought both were “iconic” and “laconic” at the same time. These guys are not just easy going – if they were any more laid back they would be horizontal. But don’t let that fool you – their wines are anything but! So, go out and grab a bottle of Barry’s Gamay (if you can get one). As well, treat yourself to a Pennyweight Fino (dry) as a pre-dinner tipple when you come in on a cold winter’s night, or enjoy a bowl of robust soup with a Pennyweight Amontillado (medium) or Oloroso (sweet). It will warm the cockles of your heart and also help to maintain a great Australian wine style. Next week: “Savvy travelling” – getting the best out of an area’s wine and produce.

Yalumba Barossa Bush Vine Grenache – lovely “joosey” flavours and won’t break the bank.

Mushrooms in tokay

Sweet chilli & ginger mushrooms

Serves 8 as a side dish • 250 g rindless bacon rashers, roughly chopped • 1/2 cup olive oil • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped • 11/2 cups multi-grain breadcrumbs • 1/3 cup roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley • salt and ground black pepper, to taste • 8 large flat mushrooms, stems trimmed Heat a medium frying pan. Add bacon and cook, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes or until crispy. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a plate. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil to the pan and heat. Add garlic and cook over low heat stirring constantly for 20 seconds only. Stir in breadcrumbs and cook over a higher heat stirring constantly, for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Stir in bacon and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat and keep mixture warm. Lightly brush mushrooms with remaining oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Barbecue or grill mushrooms on medium-high heat, turning occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until just tender. Arrange on a serving plate and top with bacon mixture. Serve immediately.

Serve immediately with steamed jasmine rice or with grilled lamb, beef or chicken.

Melt butter in a pan until foaming and add mushrooms and garlic. Shake pan over medium high heat until mushrooms release their moisture and are almost tender. Add the tokay and cream and cook rapidly until sauce is reduced. Season mushrooms and sprinkle with chives. Serve with grilled white fish, chicken or pork.

Paul’s wine pick

THE tokay will lend a slight sweetness to this dish and needs a bit of attention in our wine style.

Paul’s wine pick

Try a “Dr Loosen” Riesling (from Germany) or a “Dopff” Grand Cru Gewurztraminer (from Alsace ). Both wines are at Dan Murphy’s in Albury.

THIS dish, accompanying lamb or beef, will need a wine with plenty of sweet fruit – at the bargain end look for

He’s an all-round funny guy

CHEEKY: Jimeoin says he likes the uncertainty of trying out new live material in his shows. By BLAIR THOMSON HEEKY Irish Australian funnyman Jimeoin is a genuine kind of guy. While many performers are different in private and on stage, the 44-year-old was the same playful and witty man that audiences know and love during his chat with NewsWeekly. Best described as an observational and absurdist comedian, noting little ironies like the fact chimneys are often the only thing left after house-fires, he said he likes “daft” humour. “Really daft things, you know, I find funny,” he said. “But I like anything and everything ... I’m very human in my behaviour. “Topical stuff doesn’t really get me, there’s no Tiger Woods jokes that make me laugh, few Britney Spears jokes I’ve ever laughed at, no political jokes have ever, ever made me laugh.” He started telling his own jokes at the Harold Park Hotel in Sydney two decades ago, and it didn’t take him long to create his unique style of humour and delivery. “Yeah it was kinda quick, it just presented itself and I did it and I was away, I was off,” he explained. “I like it when people are starting out and there’s something raw about it, I don’t like it when comedians are cocky ... if they’re being cocky, usually it’s because they’re trying out material they know has worked and they’re not being brave.”


There will be plenty of new material at his Albury Entertainment show on June 5, as part of the Something … Smells Funny tour. In fact, he really doesn’t care when new jokes don’t work on stage. “The audience knows that’s what they’re there to see, and if it falls flat then that’s what happens,” he said. “You sort of keep revisiting new material every time you’ve got a gig and the thing that’s funny eventually exposes itself. “I don’t try to overly force it, one because I’m lazy and two, you want it to be natural and make people laugh … actually, I think it’s more to

do with the fact that I’m lazy.” Comedy, it seems, is in his blood. Even a show like Thank God You’re Here, which many comedians find terrifying, doesn’t seem to faze Jimeoin. “I didn’t think about it much personally … it’s like golf, you have to think so much about the shot rather than playing the actual shot,” he said. “It’s funny, everyone sees that as a very scary thing; I think people enjoy it because they think it’s going to start going wrong … but that’s what I like about it.”

CD Review Artist: Band of Horses Album: Infinite Arms

THE Third Album by Seattle’s Band of Horses doesn’t stray far from the trail of the band’s previous releases, with another mix of folksy and indie sounds greeting listeners. Opening with Factory, arguably the stand-out track on the record, it picks up pace and momentum through the next two tracks, Compliments and Laredo. The sound of Neil Young flows through the album and the vocals are airy and reverb-tinged. There is a solid mix of upbeat and mellow songs (some of which are lacking in drive), but fans of Band of Horses will be pleased

by the solid, if not entirely remarkable, album they have managed to create. If you are into the Horses’ previous works or the folsky, indie genre for which they’re renowned, give Infinite Arms a listen.

From page 19 The living area at the front of the home is where you can sit back and enjoy your television entertainment. A large flat screen television, mounted on the wall, will help take you to a new world of home entertainment. The other living area offers stunning (there’s that word again) views of the sandstone paved in-ground pool, the natural beauty of the countryside and the decked entertaining area. It offers the opportunity to just soak up the tranquility of this picturesque scene. The kitchen area is the heart and soul of any home and this is no exception. The quality kitchen with granite bench tops and stainless steel appliances are a stunning feature of the home. The home features five bedrooms … one of which could be transformed into a study or computer room. The beautifully designed master bedroom features an ensuite and spacious walk-in-robe. It also provides direct access and views to the decked entertaining area and in-ground pool. Other special features of the home include a powder room linked to the master bathroom, built-in-robes in the other

bedrooms and ample cupboard space in the kitchen. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area is both functional and designed to provide absolute comfort for the home’s occupants. There is also internal access to the 10 x 10.5m garage, which provides plenty of room for vehicles to be kept out of the weather extremes. A concealed laundry is another example of the functionality of the home, which has been designed with pure luxury in mind for its occupants. Outdoors is also a sight to behold. Coping with the heat of summer would be a breeze with your very own decked entertaining area and sandstone paved in-ground pool. The superbly landscaped setting lends itself to an ideal lifestyle where relaxation and pampering of the occupants were the cornerstones on which this home was built. The fact that the home is situated in close proximity to the Wodonga Golf Club is another added bonus for those who have the golfing bug. It is a beautiful home situated in a beautiful setting. It is simply stunning!

Kiwi star turns it on to sink Frankston ANOTHER big score from New Zealand international, Lisa Wallbutton, has helped the Commercial Club Lady Bandits turn their recent poor form around and take a solid 21 point win over Frankston on the weekend. A big 22-8 first quarter helped the Border team set up the victory with Frankston keeping pace in the middle half of the game. The girls were then in a strong position and finished with a 21-13 point final term to ensure the victory was theirs. Wallbutton’s team high 19 points was followed closely by Toni Edmondson on 17. Alex Duck’s return to the line up didn’t bother the scorers and she may well take some time to re-establish herself on home soil. Without doubt she’ll be back to form in no time and help the girls to finish off a tough season. The men had a tough road trip facing Mount Gambier’s Pioneers on Friday night, going down in a close fought 70-79 game. Imports Travis Gabbidon and Ryan Bright both achieved double doubles with 21 and 11 each, Daniel Briglia the only other Bandit to make double figures with 10 points. On Saturday they faced Frankston and in another tight game went down 89-79. Ryan Bright again managed a big 26-point haul with Nick Payne stepping up to contribute 21. The Bandits now return to the ‘Hideout’ on Saturday night with the women taking on Hobart at 6pm followed by the men’s clash against Sandringham. The men then head south to take on Knox Sunday. IN senior hockey Norths women have given Wodonga a big 6-0 defeat, stamping their authority on the competition. Rhianna Coleiro put in a big effort for Wodonga but the Norths defense was impenetrable while for the victors Janessa Leggatt and Emma Knagge both contributed two goals. Norths are currently sitting comfortably on top of the ladder with five wins and one draw. Meanwhile Falcons women moved up to second position with a narrow 4-3 victory over United. For the men Falcons remained on top after a 7-3 win over United. Wodonga managed a close 5-4 victory over Norths and after leading all day a single handed effort by Norths’ Ian Beath almost stole the game Beath utilised his trademark reverse stick “tomahawk” shooting style to great effect, scoring all goals for Norths, but a solid defensive effort by Ben Martin helped Wodonga to hold on.

Defensive play the key for team: coach By TREVOR JACKSON GOOD defensive players are a sought after commodity, according to Lady Bandits’ coach Kennedy Kereama. “Anyone can play offense but to have the heart and desire to play good defense is what basketball is all about.” And Kereama should know, having reached the heights of assistant coach for the New Zealand national women’s basketball team, the Tall Ferns, in his homeland across the Tasman. Kereama was addressing a small group of under 14 girls Albury Cougars representative players on Tuesday night after offering his services in a weekly training session. Good defensive players may well be hard to find but so are coaches of Kereama’s calibre in the local area. He began coaching junior basketball at just 15 years of age with primary school children in Christchurch, eventually spanning all age groups from under 12s up to under 21s. “I mainly stuck with girls after an opportunity opened up with the under 16s,” he told NewsWeekly. “I was about 18 or 19 then so I decided to go for that. “I coached a lot of high school basketball in secondary school tournaments … a lot of rep teams for Canterbury basketball. “I got involved with the high performance basketball program with Basketball New Zealand at 21. “That lead to national age group teams through BNZ and I continued to coach Canterbury junior teams. “I then started coaching older women and under 20s club basketball as well as premier women and won a few titles. “I went on to win a few titles with Canterbury under 21s.” Kereama said he managed a few big achievements such as coach of the year which helped to advance his career even further. “Basketball NZ started pumping a lot of money into me, sending me to a lot of coaching clinics and workshops through Sport and Recreation NZ,” he said. “They started up-skilling me and I began my degree in sports coaching. “I guess the most recent achievement that got to where I am

EXPERIENCE: Kennedy Kereama urges on his players during a recent match. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON now, and the Olympics, was when I coached the Canterbury under 21 women to the national championship. “At that stage the Christchurch Sirens were about to kick off and since that’s our most senior women’s basketball team I was asked to be assistant coach of the WNBL team which was based in Christchurch. “From there I was assistant coach in the WNBL for 2007-8 which was during the lead up to the Olympics. “One of the assistant coaches pulled out so I applied for that job with the Tall Ferns. “At that stage I’d gone through a lot of the high performance Basketball NZ process anyway … so they gave me an opportunity there and now I’m still the assistant coach of the Tall Ferns.” Kereama said he heard about the position in Albury with the Lady Bandits through a friend, applied for the position and, of course, the rest is history. He said he has always enjoyed coaching junior basketball and helping out wherever possible.

“I just started up a junior Bandits’ academy which runs underneath our (Bandits) program. “It’s more targeted at up-skilling rep players. “I think there are plenty of people around here that do a fantastic job … everyone in Albury Wodonga is dong their part. “Travis Gabbidon and Ryan Bright are going around to schools, as are Lisa Wallbutton and Toni Edmondson … there are a lot of people here doing good stuff in junior basketball. “But the academy is more about the rep players … getting them into a gym and giving them opportunities outside of their rep basketball programs to really work hard on their skills.” Kereama said the program was in a way an elitist approach to basketball because of its target group. “The sessions are pretty tough,” he said. “I want the sport to grow … you don’t want kids that have just started playing and put them in a situation where they’re not comfortable … I’m here to grow the sport, not diminish the numbers.”

Kereama feels that having been involved with the sport at such a high level for many years it is important to put something back into the community. “You have a bit of a duty to give back to the community,” he said. “When you’re a pin-pointed player for the men’s or women’s team you have a duty to give back. “Most of the kids and coaches here, we all have a pretty good rapport … the kids are happy to come up and say hi to us. “It’s good to have players around such as Ryan and Travis, Lisa and Toni … there are a lot of kids around here with potential. “Every kid has some potential and I guess us being around is just showing kids a higher level of basketball so they can really tap into that experience. “They always like to ask Lisa how the Olympics was. “They can ask questions like how much training they need to do to play at the highest level … it’s good for them to know if they do choose to play basketball at the highest level possible that they understand what’s required.”

First win has Callan on road to achieving dream By TREVOR JACKSON BEECHWORTH boxerr, Callan Orchard, who recently turned professional has received praise from Danny Green’s trainer, Angelo Hyder. “Angelo was at the bout in Albury,” Orchard said. “He said he wouldn’t mind having me fight in Sydney on his card at some stage. “To have someone like that say that … it’s pretty awesome!” The Extreme Boxing night, put on by local boxing promoter, Caine Melbourne pitted Orchard against Lee Blacka in the light heavyweight division. In a solid display of control and craftsmanship Orchard took the bout to the applause of appreciative fans.

At 20 years of age Orchard has been in training for around three years with John McCuvvin at Beechworth. He felt nervous going into his first professional bout but had confidence in his ability to get the job done. “It’s a big step going to the professional ranks,” he said. “I felt confident I wasn’t going to get hurt … I just wanted to do my best.” Orchard said growing up he had a passion for the sport and wanted to see if he could make a name for himself. “I just love the sport,” he said. “I like all the old legends … I like the vibe … it keeps you fit. “It helps getting that first win.”

New face joins Jones stable for enduros By TREVOR JACKSON IN motor racing Brad Jones Racing and Fair Dinkum Sheds Racing have signed sports car driver, David Wall, to partner Karl Reindler in this year’s endurance series. Wall will be sharing the responsibilities at Phillip Island and Bathurst and team co-owner, Brad Jones was confident in the team’s newest addition. “People come from many different directions into V8s and I think that’s okay, as long as you learn your race craft,” Jones said. “David’s doing some overseas stuff in the Mosler this year driving high horsepower Porches and he comes from a good racing pedigree. “I think he’s got plenty of talent and will be competitive for us in the enduros.” Wall said he was happy to have

been given the role of backing up Reindler in the Fair Dinkum Sheds Commodore and was looking forward to the approaching races. “I drove a Falcon last year and this year it’s a Holden so it’s just a matter of getting my head around it,” he said. “Coming from a sports car background you run different tyres and set up so it is a bit different. “The team has a good history in the enduros, especially Bathurst, and Bathurst is all about finishing. “I think the team is on track this season and although I’ve only done a few laps in the car at this stage I feel confident we can have a good run.” For Karl Reindler his rookie season has been a baptism of fire with mechanical problems causing issues early on but recent events have been

quite positive for him and the team as a whole. He said it had been a last minute deal to come on board with the Brad Jones Racing stable and believed it had all worked out nicely to this point. “With Jason Bright joining the Jones team I guess it was a logical step for them to run his team as well,” he said. “The team environment is excellent … everyone gets along well … it’s a great team Brad runs. “Early in the season it was full on … we only had one test day and next thing we were in the Middle East … it all happened so quickly but I’ve really enjoyed it all.” He said he was still finding his feet in what he feels is one of the most competitive motor racing categories in the world.

“The team environment has really helped,” he said. “Having two really good team mates in Jason Bright and Jason Richards has made the process easier. “They have been really helpful along the way.” Reindler said he was looking forward to pairing up with Wall and was confident he would be able to fit into the team well. “I met David last year so I know him which has helped a lot,” he said. “He hasn’t done a lot of laps in the supercar but has in other cars and is very adaptable. “He jumped in the car for the first time this week and did an excellent job. “I’m very confident in his ability.”

PREPARED: Aaron Mills and Declan Gregory are ready to compete at the Victorian Country road titles. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON By TREVOR JACKSON ALBURY Wodonga Cycling Club’s devopment team is going ahead in leaps and bounds with growth allowing the squad to test itself against the best in the state. This weekend five members will compete at Newstead in the Victorian Country road titles. “We compete against teams from Geelong and Bendigo, Shepparton and Ballarat,” squad member Brendan Washington said. “There should be about 75 riders taking part in the event. “They have the metro champi-

onships on the Saturday and the country on Sunday so it should be a big weekend.” Members of the squad taking part will be Shane Way, Aaron Mills, Brendan Washington and the two newest members, Kade Brown and Declan Gregory. Washington said they had been training hard leading up to the event in the hope of some good results on the back of the squad’s most successful year to date. “We’ve had some pretty tough sessions,” he said. “I think we should go all right

overall … Millsy should be a good chance in the under 19 division. “Myself and Shane should go well in the elite men’s. “Our newer members have been working hard with races locally and away and are doing quite well.” The event is run over a four lap course and Washington said the team was looking forward to the challenge. “It’s the first time we’ve been able to go away and really compete at a race like this,” he said. Moving from the track season into the road season the near future

looks busy for the local team with events approaching at Wangaratta and the three day Tour of Bendigo coming up in June. “The tour of Bendigo is a big one for us,” Washington said. “When you look at the history of the race there’s been some big name winners over the years.” With overall cycling ranks in the area in a growth phase Washington said the sport was strong with some good future prospects. “We have some good up and coming riders,” he said. “Things are looking good.”

Netballers to battle for right to contest state titles NETBALLERS from across the north east of the state will converge on JC King park this weekend for the North East Zone qualifying tournament. Forty teams teams are vying for a spot in the Association championships in Melbourne at the end of June. Divisions represented by Albury teams include 13 and under, 15, and 17. Coach of the Albury 15 girls gold team, Leanne Kearney, said the girls had proved to be a

very capable line up. “We have a really good team this season,” she said. “We have three North East Academy players in the team, Jordan Farrugia, Lucy Wise-Chalker and Annie Bell. “We’ve competed in six tournaments this year and won every one of them.” Mrs Kearney said apart from the academy

players they also had a number of bottom age players and the whole team head gelled well and were ‘just a great bunch of girls’. “It’s been a really outstanding season for us,” she said. “We went to Echuca thinking it would be difficult but we won that one. “The girls just play really well together.” The event will take place on Sunday.

Size no barrier as siblings sizzle on court From back page “She just kept playing and making rep and the other girls followed on from there.” The three girls are of small stature but cope well on the court, going in hard against much bigger opposition. “Ricki was always small and they’ve watched her go in hard and seem to know how to do it well,” Mrs Watson said. “It’s scary to watch them because they’re so little and they go in against these great big girls but it’s a great feeling to watch the three of them in the one team. “The twins are still bottom age so have a long way to go but Kenna’s shaped up really well really quickly.” Mrs Watson said the girls performed well together on the court, with the uncanny connection of the twins not an uncommon one amongst similar sporting siblings. “We call the twins the umbilical cord because they know where each other is on the court without looking,” she said. “One will be playing defence and steal the ball and throw it into the other’s arms every time. “In rep, because they’re so little, they’re subbing each other on and off so they’re not on the court together that often. “To start with I thought Kenna would hate having them on the same team but she’s actually warmed up quite well to it. “When they’re away she’s a real mother hen … she makes sure they’re on the bus and don’t wander off … that kind of thing … she pulls them in a bit tighter. “On the court she tends to not look for them too much because she’s afraid they’ll get hurt. “I know that because I was on the bench with her one day and she was worried about Macy putting her body in front in defense and said, ‘you’ll get killed doing that’!” With the oldest sister, Ricki, not playing representative basketball any more Mrs Watson said it was an added bonus to have her come along to watch the girls as it helped to keep them closer as a family. “Ricki really enjoys watching the three of them playing together,” she said. “She’s on the edge of her seat … she wasn’t coming this weekend but made sure I brought her along to watch. “Kenna plays a lot like she does and I think she can see that. “She worries about the twins too … like against Illawarra, the twins come up to their opponents hips … but they hold their own, just like she always did.”

simply want to go along and enjoy a good day out. The club has around 70 members and holds weekly rides which are organised after suggestions from members. Club president, Paul Hare, said members were encouraged to present ideas of interest, such as the shooting day, for upcoming rides. “In this situation we have a member who owns one of the small replica cannons and he proposed we go down and have a look,” Mr Hare said. “A few of us went down there and had a great day. “It opened my eyes to how accurate these old weapons were. “Those showing us the weapons were very friendly and inviting.” Mr Hare said he wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the event to anyone interested and had

found the day extremely interesting. “I’d be saying at our next meeting how good the day was and how well we were welcomed,” he said. “It was just a good day all round.” The motorcycle club members were invited to get hands on with the firing of the weapons. Mr Hare said the shooters who showed the visitors their sport were very safety conscious throughout. “They were very well disciplined,” he said. “They would fire their weapons one at a time … all ammunition was well back from the firing line and when the range was closed so they could check targets everyone obeyed the rules.” He said the weapons ranged from muzzle loading firearms to exact replica cannons. The largest was a 25 pound cannon,

which he said was extremely accurate. “Noel Smith from our club owns a quarter scale Napoleon replica cannon,” he said. “I believe it cost him around $800US and was one of the last ones available. “The smooth bore rifles have a flint on the hammer and there is a sort of time delay when fired. “They are quite fascinating.” Enquiries regarding the shooting days can be made by contacting Graeme Smith on 0418 432 934. The motorcycle club organises rides ranging from outings such as this or overnight trips through such areas as the Victorian high country. Any enquiries regarding the club can directed to president Paul Hare on 0438 265 433.

Sorry Tiges, Raiders are on a roll WITH the interleague weekend over and the Ovens and Murray licking its wounds after a 24-point defeat at the hands of Goulburn Valley, we return to the home and away games with an interesting round ahead. Corowa-Rutherglen have shown some patches of quality football this season and face Wangaratta in a game that could go either way. I’m going out on a limb and think the Roos can take the points this week. Yarrawonga will most certainly have a good win over Wodonga and North Albury will comfortably account for Myrtleford. I can’t say the final two games will be easy to pick but either way a decision must be made. Lavington will struggle against Wang Rovers but I think they’ll hold

on in what should be a closely fought contest. Wodonga Raiders are riding the crest of a wave and it’d be hard to go against them going on current from. I don’t think many really expected them to get up over Yarrawonga and having achieved that you have to wonder who can stop them. Enter Albury. The Tigers have looked as strong as any team in the league this season and would surely have the ability to end the Raiders dream run … but then the same would have been said about Yarrawonga! To be honest I can’t see too much stopping the Raiders juggernaut for the remainder of the season, they’re simply too good, although they’ll no doubt suffer somewhere along the line.

This week, however, will not be one of those games. They will approach the game headlong and come away with yet another victory, taking the season by the throat and dispelling any doubts about their ability to be a serious grand final contender. - TREVOR JACKSON

By TREVOR JACKSON MEMBERS of the Albury Wodonga Classic and Enthusiasts Motorcycle Club have turned back the hands of time at a cannon and smooth bore rifle shooting day. The day was organised by the North Eastern Muzzleloaders Colonial Firearms Club at its Taminick shooting range on Saturday. Many old style replica black powder cannons and firearms were in use on the day with targets set up to add a competitive feel to the monthly event. The firearms club has operated from its Taminick range since the early 1980s and has more than 60 members. The motorcycle club itself is a local branch of the Sydney club and caters for conditional plated bikes as well as those with normally registered bikes who

The trio all ended up in the same domestic team in under 10s until Kenna moved up to under 12s and began playing representative basketball. The twins advanced to under 12s this season and joined Kenna in the representative program. Mrs Watson said Ricki had started playing basketball when her father passed away and it seemed to help her to cope with the situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She needed something to get her mind off that and for the one hour a week she seemed to go and play hard and be free of everything,â&#x20AC;? she said.

TALENTED: The Watson sisters at Wodonga stadium during the Southern Junior League basketball season. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON

By TREVOR JACKSON TWO siblings playing in the same sporting team is not unheard of, even in representative sport. Three sisters playing in the same representative basketball team is a little rarer. The Watson girls, twins Macy and Jessie and older sister Kenna have bucked the trend and have all been selected to play for the under 12 Albury Cougars team in the NSW Southern Junior League. The sisters have just competed in round two of SJL at Wodonga Stadium where NewsWeekly caught up with them. The girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mother, and often team manager, Kym Watson, said the trio had grown up around the sport, watching their older sister, Ricki play from the time they could walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve basically been court rats,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They watched Ricki play
