DOZENS of white balloons were released at QEII Square this week to show the community’s stance against child abuse and highlight services available to those being abused. Bianca Read and Mikaela Restall were two of many Albury High School students who volunteered for the day, which was supported by Albury mayor Alice Glachan. About 500 white balloons were sold to local businesses as part of the campaign. Picture: ROD HARDINGE

Worth the pain

Volt Lane project a real plus for Albury – developer By PAT KOOPMAN RETAILERS and shoppers will have to put up with some inconvenience during the construction of the $53.5 million Volt Lane development. But Canberra-based developer David Harper says every effort will be made to minimise the disruption. And he says the long-term benefits will well and truly make up for the impact of the building works. “At the end of the day once the


project is complete and everything is up and running it will put a lot more people and emphasis into that area,” he said. Mr Harper, whose company Volt Lane Pty Ltd is handling the development, spoke to NewsWeekly following a public meeting in Albury on Monday night where he presented details on the timing of the various construction phases. He also provided a power-point display of detailed plans of the proposed offices, retail outlets, cafes,

restaurants and public car parking to be included. The forum followed on from a similar function hosted by the Albury Northside Chambers of Commerce last month. “As council outlined tonight the Joint Regional Planning Panels are doing another couple of rounds of consultation, so all in all it’s well and truly got out there,” Mr Harper said. Mr Harper said the site “obviously comes with its constraints”.

“But everybody is doing the best they can to mitigate those as much as possible,” he said. Mr Harper told the public forum “Volt Lane Markets” would be a retail complex which would complement existing retail outlets. He said there was an opportunity for a large scale fruit and vegetable operator, while he would also like to see a butcher, bakery, seafood shop and deli. It would not take away from the existing Sunday markets.

Albury mayor Cr Alice Glachan said the public forum was an important part of the consultation process before the project commenced. “It was an opportunity for the community to be present at a presentation by the developer so that he could explain the project holistically,” she said. Cr Glachan said there would inevitably be some inconvenience caused by the development. Continued page 2 Friday, October 9, 2009 – NewsWeekly • 1

Centre to get more seating

By BLAIR THOMSON WODONGA Council is looking to make changes to its proposed $9.8 million performing arts centre following community feedback. Among the ideas is the possible addition of extra seating. Council’s cultural, events and youth services manager, Simone Hogg, said the 80 responses received from the public were largely positive, but that changes will be looked at with designer William Ross Architects. “Generally there was some

great feedback … people are very pleased with the design and we had some fantastic feedback about what people like and some constructive points about how we can tweak the design,” she said. “There was feedback about putting an extra row or two of seating in so we’re looking at that with the designers. “We’ll also look at how we can work with our existing parking and how we can do things a bit smarter and a bit better in that regard.

“There’s also some concerns about how we work operationally, and how we address that. “We’re looking at how we can work with this feedback and tweak the design and costings.” Ms Hogg said respondents generally liked the orientation of the stage and the back of house facilities, which will act as a sound buffer to the residential area. The next step for the project is revising the designs and creating a master plan for the new centre.

Christmas, or towards the end of January. “So that it will be completed before we then start the critical Christmas period for the year after,” she said. Public submissions on the development application close on September 17.

By BLAIR THOMSON FOUR young Border women will be given scholarships for further education thanks to the Women in Chamber group. Women in Chamber is looking to give the scholarships to disadvantaged students who want to continue their education past high school, but can’t afford to do so. Albury Northside Chamber of Commerce business manager, Kerryn Arnold, said it would be a fantastic opportunity for those chosen. “As long as they have the drive, passion and capability for further education, they’re the young ladies that we’ll be targeting,” she said. “We’re really excited about it because it will give support for young ladies in the area who may not have those opportunities to cement their future. “We’re going to be working with the schools to identify them. “It might perhaps be a young lady in Year 10 who wants to go to TAFE but can’t, or a student in Year 12 who can’t afford to go to university.” Ms Arnold said passion and drive will be the key to those being selected. The scholarship winners are to be announced early next year. “It doesn’t have to be a high achiever, we’re looking for women who won’t get the opportunities because of their circumstances,” she said. “The Women in Chamber group is really about supporting women in their lives and in the business world.” The idea is an initiative of the Albury and Northside and Wodonga Chambers of Commerce, with Telstra supplying the funds through a partnership. “We wanted to do something significant with that money, rather than having it whittle away, and I think the scholarships are a great way to make a difference,” Ms Arnold said.

Mirabella, Ley predict a rocky road for Gillard government and Green allies

We’ll fight for share of cash By BLAIR THOMSON THE new minority Labor Government could be a step backwards for the Border, according to Sussan Ley. Yet the Member for Farrer remains hopeful the $10 billion offered to regional areas to gain the support of key independents will flow through to the Albury Wodonga region. “It’s not a positive development that Labor is in power ... although the independents were in focus the

last few weeks, I think they’ll slip into the background and we’ll see the true colour of the government, and that is they’re in alliance with the Greens,” Ms Ley said. “I have never seen a farmingfriendly Greens policy, and if it’s not farming friendly then its not friendly to regional Victoria.” Ms Ley said she would campaign hard for the money promised to regional Victoria. “It appears to me that some of that money has been announced already and I’m also not confident

that they can administer any projects properly given their track record,” she said. “If they are new programs, then I’ll be at the front of the queue arguing our case for, say, a cancer centre or regional infrastructure.” Both Ms Ley and the Member for Indi, Sophie Mirabella, said they expected the result and believe it will be a struggle for the Gillard Government to pass legislation and make any real reform. “It was difficult to know what they would decide, but I had a gut

60 years on and the love is as strong as ever By PAT KOOPMAN THE love shared between Murray and Margaret Evans has truly stood the test of time. “The day I asked her to marry me was the best decision of my life,” Murray told NewsWeekly from their Tatura home this week. The loving couple were in Albury last weekend where they renewed their marriage vows at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Lavington to mark their 60th wedding anniversary. They were then joined by about 50 family and friends for a luncheon at St James Hall.

Albury was chosen due to its central location for those who had to travel for the special occasion. Family and friends travelled from such centres as Leeton, Waggga and Lockhart, where Murray and Margaret were married 60 years ago. They also have family in Albury. “It has meant a lot of happiness to us over the years,” Murray said of their special love for each other. “We love each other, but we’re also good friends. “We always talk things out … there’s no one decision maker.”

Murray first met his brideto-be when he was introduced to Margaret by her brother. “I met her on her 17th birthday and my birthday is the next day,” he explained. “We got to know one another and we found out we had a lot of the same thoughts.” Murray enjoyed a special affinity with horses and only handed in his trainer’s licence two years ago. The 83-year-old trained 69 winners during his career, with 13 of those coming in Melbourne. Murray and Margaret’s family includes nine children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

feeling that would be the way it would go,” Ms Mirabella said of Labor winning power. “It’s obviously disappointing that the Labor Party, which got fewer seats and fewer votes, has formed a minority government, but I’m invigorated as part of our democracy to hold the Labor Government responsible and to account because we want the best government possible because that’s what we deserve. “On every piece of legislation they’ll need the independents’ sup-

port and it will be difficult to get any progress across. “We’ll just have to wait and see how it pans out. “We’re in an unusual situation and we will just have to wait and see how it unfolds – its a very fragile Government.” A Coalition party room meeting to welcome the 16 new members of the Coalition and discuss the future of the opposition, and its tactics, was held in Canberra yesterday, with both local members in attendance.

Get on with the job IF a week is a long time in sport, then the past two or so weeks has been an eternity in the political arena. It was announced to the nation on Tuesday that independents Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott had agreed to back Julia Gillard and her Labor Party. Their decision gave Labor the 76 seats needed to rule, albeit in a minority government. The nation went to the polls on August 21. Since that day there has been a cloud of uncertainty over whether the Coalition, under Tony Abbott, or the Labor Party, under our ďŹ rst female prime minister, would gain the green light to govern us. It has been a long drawn out saga as the nation has awaited the outcome. Locally the seats of Farrer and Indi were strongly retained by Sussan Ley and Sophie Mirabella respectively for the Liberal Party. To think the Coalition came within a whisker of forming government spoke volumes of the discontent felt by many voters throughout the nation.

Labor lost a swag of seats in New South Wales and Queensland. It was widely accepted that Tony Abbott led a decisive and comprehensive campaign in what was otherwise regarded as a mainly “dullâ€? lead-up to polling day. The Coalition made up considerable ground in this federal election. Many believe that if there had to be another election it would win in its own right and not need the support of the independents. But this is the political system the Australian nation ďŹ nds itself in. Julia Gillard still has a long way to go in the eyes of many to convince them that Labor is seen as the way forward. What we should all hope for is that the new government will be far more transparent and accountable. The Border also deserves to be treated with respect and dignity by the same government which overlooked it in April for a regional cancer centre. The ďŹ ght for that will continue.

Opinion Power calls are a scam WANT to cut your electricity bill? Other readers may have experienced a rapid-fire telephone spiel claiming to want to very kindly reward customer loyalty by reducing the electricity bill by 30 per cent, or so (sorry if this turns out to be one that caught you). The company concerned in the telemarketing has had warning correspondence again from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (or ACMA) in relation to breaching “Do Not Call” (personally, I doubt that will do much good). It sounds too good to be true, and it is … as usual. The salesperson will speak about your electricity supplier and about other lucky selected recipients of this “reduction”.

They just want to send you a device to plug in a power point (you do have a power point, don’t you, she said). Finally you will hear that you will have to pay just $149 for the power saver device. Suspicious? You could ask for their name and phone number … but that will avail you nothing. There is information on the internet. You can visit 1stopmarketingsolution and find their (incorrect) NSW address and some detail on the “device” … which is supposedly a power factor correction unit which (they claim) will greatly reduce your electricity consumption. Seems there is one springing up every minute! ALLEN HAMPTON Thurgoona

Fight must go on

THE wonderful attendance at the recent rally for a regional cancer centre was a heart-touching display of regional unity in which I was pleased to participate. The organisers are to be congratulated and the people of Albury, Wodonga and surrounding areas certainly made their feelings and presence clear in a determined show of support for such an important cause. As the State Member for Albury, I spoke of the need for the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre in the NSW Parliament on June 24, 2010 after writing a letter of support last year as part of the funding application put forward to the Australian Government. I stated at that time that the proposal addressed consumer needs and service gaps and aligned with national and state cancer priorities and frameworks. More recently I wrote to the

The Minister replied on August 5, 2010, stating: “NSW is supportive of cancer models that deliver integrated and comprehensive cancer services for the Albury-Wodonga region.” “NSW has advised the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing that it is willing to provide in-principle support to the proposal.”

Although the Federal Minister for Rural and Regional Health, Warren Snowdon, advised there were no additional funds available under the Regional Cancer Centres initiative, the community should not cease protesting about the original decisions and should continue to fight until funding is found.

Art enthusiasts flock to display

By BLAIR THOMSON AROUND 240 art enthusiasts visited Adamshurst in Albury last Friday night for the opening of the new Off The Page art exhibition. Featuring around 165 works of a wide variety of styles, including about 40 paintings from the Wewak Street Public School in North Albury, the exhibition has been well attended with many works sold. “It’s been really good, we’ve had a steady stream of people through the door every day and the sales have been really good,” Gay Glover, who has several paintings in the exhibition, told NewsWeekly. “Most of the paintings are

by a group of us that mainly live around Splitters Creek. “Everybody is very diverse; there are contemporary works, some oils and acrylics, watercolours, graphite, collage, lots of different mediums and a diverse range of styles and techniques.” It is the second exhibition by the Splitters Creek group this year, with entry by gold coin donation. The artworks range from large framed pieces, to smaller, postcard size pieces. The exhibition runs until this Sunday, September 12, from 10am to 5pm. For more information on Off The Page, contact Adamshurst in David Street, Albury, on 6021 6588.

Seniors ready for big week

EXPERIENCE the fascinating story of Sylvia Mary Middleton’s life as a Scottish war bride during this year’s Senior Celebrations at the Wodonga Civic Centre. Memoirs of a Scottish War Bride is a tribute to Sylvia’s journey shared by her daughter through pictures, costumes, music and songs, poetry and storytelling. The play tells a wonderful tale of adventure, innocence, tears, laughter and struggle. Wodonga Council manager aged services Debbie MacKinlay said that after watching the play, you will be able to imagine what life was like in post-World War II Australia for those brave young women who left their homelands and travelled to Australia to wed their Aussie soldiers. “We are very lucky to host this performance in Wodonga during its tour of the North East,” she said. “Our audience will be treated to fabulous costume changes, storytelling, poetry readings, recorded music from Vera Lynn and Tessie O’Shea, original speeches from Winston Churchill and singing accompanied on the ukulele.” Christine Middleton, playwright, per-

former and Sylvia’s daughter, said while she was slowly piecing together the photographs and memories of her parents’ story, she realised that it was a story that needed to be told to the wider world. “This is a story representing many young women who were true pioneers and unsung heroines,” Christine said. More than 1000 war brides and fiancés travelled with Christine’s mother from the United Kingdom to Australia in July 1946 on a journey to an unknown land 12,000 miles away. All her mother carried with her was a trunk, a wedding cake and three bottles of malt whisky from her hometown in Scotland. It will play at the Wodonga Civic Centre on Wednesday, October 6. The 90-minute, free performance starts at 7pm and will be followed by wine and cheese. To book your place, contact Wodonga Council’s customer service team on 6022 9300 by Friday, October 1.

$60,000 raised for Legacy By BLAIR THOMSON THE 1100 widows of deceased and injured Border war veterans will benefit from the estimated $60,000 raised by Legacy Week, which finished last Saturday. A total of $21,600 was raised by the Legacy Eight Hour Event at Bandiana army base last Friday alone. Around 600 soldiers and army staff from several bases travelled to the Army Logistic Training Centre at Bandiana to help with the event, which involved teams running, walking and cycling for eight hours to raise funds for the organisation. The event was part of the Legacy Week annual national appeal, which has

run since 1942, and also involved dozens of Border students selling Legacy badges around town. Lieutenant Colonel Bronwyn Wheeler, who helped organise the event, said the wild weather didn’t stop people getting involved. “As you can see the cyclists are having to deal with a muddy track, the runners are doing it hard and the walkers are in there as well,” she said. “There is a positive atmosphere, the guys love it, and just the fact that a number of people have turned up in fancy gear and have bought their pets shows this really is a wonderful day for Legacy. “I think the biggest thing here is that it is sup-

porting Legacy, and Legacy has been a great supporter of defence and war widows over the years.” The event started in 2006 when two soldiers ran 100 kilometres together in just over 10 hours The addition of a walking leg helped to expand this year’s event. “It’s getting bigger and better every year,” Lt-Col Wheeler said. “I think it’s important to give back to them and they’re doing it not only for the 21 colleagues that we’ve lost, it’s for the whole of Legacy.” The remaining money was raised through the sales of Legacy Badges, donations from RSL’s and a number of other fundraisers around the Border.

Break and enter offences are on the rise and the considerable costs are borne by us all

You can do much to deter criminals RECENTLY we have seen an increase in breaking and entering offences into properties other than houses. This includes businesses, educational premises and community facilities. On most occasions a window is smashed or a door forced open to gain entry. Each time one of these offences occur the end result impacts upon those paying insurance as the premiums creep up. NRMA assesses the average cost of a break and enter incident to be $3500. Last week I reported through the media a large property theft of construction tools from a commercial premises currently being constructed in Dean Street.

• Keep suspect description forms in an easily accessible place. • Fix height markers on doors. • Train staff to use these tools effectively, as a good description assists police in identifying and apprehending an offender. • An intruder alarm and devices such as cameras or monitored closed circuit television can deter crime and identify offenders.


inspector LYNELLE RODWELL Dean Street is well patronised, well lit and generally a very open place to be seen. Doesn’t it astound you that thieves could force their way through the front door of this location during common hours and steal tools worth thousands of dollars basically undetected? Effective security measures will reduce the opportunity for crime. Consider the following:

Externally • Exterior lighting acts as a deterrent, allowing a clear view of any unusual activities. Consider motion-activated flood lighting. • Fit solid wooden or metal doors, or preferably security doors with double cylinder deadlocks, to entrances (check fire regulations).

������������� ������������� ���������������

�� �� �� �� �� �� �� �


�� ��������������������������� �� ��������������������� �����������������������





• Install protective lighting. • Install key operated locks, keyed alike, on all windows, with ready access to the key in emergency. • When replacing glass panes consider an alternative material such as laminated glass or security film protection. • Consider security grilles on all accessible windows and on skylights, remembering to have exit in case of fire. • Have separate doors for entry and exit with one-way turnstiles. • Install security mirrors to improve safety and protect your property. Mirrors correctly installed extend your field of vision and protect merchandise. • Make use of signs, colour landscaping, or natural boundaries.


� ��������������������������


• Ensure solid door and window frames that are not subject to shrinkage are in place. • Protect external door hinges to prevent hinge pin removal. • Trim trees and shrubs so that the view of your premises is not obscured and hiding places are removed. • Lock away dumpsters and wheelie bins or chain to posts away from buildings to reduce risk of arson damage to facility. • Store away or immobilise items which can be used to assist in an offence, such as ladders, tools or cars parked next to buildings. • Consider installing bollards between the road and business frontage to deter “ram raids”.

Border company takes HIA top award for second year

Building better homes

By BLAIR THOMSON SCOTT James Builder has won the HIA North East Victoria Regional Home of the Year award for the second year running. Scott James, who runs the Albury based company, accepted the prize at the HIA North East Victoria Regional Housing Awards night last Friday. “Probably the biggest thing was winning the award two years running ... it’s something I haven’t seen happen often, if at all,” Mr James said. “It means that we’re at least keeping up the same level of standards and hopefully improving, which is why we enter. “It’s a bit of a measuring stick to see how we’re performing. “Sometimes the judges will give you constructive criticism, and hopefully we can continue to improve next year.” Mr James started the company about 10 years ago and said he enjoyed the challenge of unique building projects. “We cater for the middle to higher end market,” he said. “We enjoy doing something different and special and anything that’s a challenge to us. “There’s no design criteria that we build to; the client comes to us with their plans or asks us to make them, and we put together something the client wants.” Scott James Builder also won the Greensmart Energy Efficient Housing Award and the Small Commercial Project of the Year. Other companies to win awards were 21st Century Homes, Sessions Builders, Simonds Homes, Palhares Constructions, Hadar Homes, Eurotrend Cabinets, Nev’s Cabinets and LR and LJ White Pty Ltd. HIA executive director Gil King said

member industry association supporting the building industry nationally, judged the homes to a strict criteria. “The criteria is quite defined and it’s about the quality of the home, the standard of the finish and overall standard of the home, with specific categories so that you don’t have low cost homes up against expensive homes,” he said. “It’s primarily the quality of building but there are some categories that relate to innovative design.” Mr King said the awards were not just about houses, but covered things like kitchen and bathrooms as well.

By BLAIR THOMSON VISION impaired Border residents will gain independence and confidence thanks to a free new cooking program. Vision Australia and AlburyCity have teamed up to create the program, which will teach up to 10 blind and vision impaired people how to cook safely when it launches at the Mirambeena Community Centre on October 19. Vision Australia occupational therapist, Rebekah Howard, said the six-week course will help with more than just cooking skills. “The aim is to give people confidence and improve their independence,” she said. “A lot of people who

are newly vision impaired are afraid to go into the kitchen and rely on the help of family and friends, and this program will give them the skills to cook for themselves. “We want them to eat more than just canned or frozen food, which is all that many of them eat.” Ms Howard said the course will cover many aspects of cooking and use equipment made for low vision people. “It will cover basic skills like going to the shop for ingredients, chopping and peeling, and by the end the clients will cook for themselves,” she said. For more information on the program call Vision Australia in Albury on 1300 84 74 66.

Council plans for safer driving ALBURY council is backing road safety. Mayor Alice Glachan said the plan aims to change dangerous behaviours, such as drink driving and driving while talking on a mobile phone. “The plan responds to Albury’s specific road safety issues and reflects analysis of local crashes,” Cr Glachan said. “It also takes into account priorities expressed by local people and Albury 2030, the community’s vision for Albury’s future.” In writing the plan, AlburyCity’s road safety officer, Kate de Hennin, was surprised to find a strong correlation between issues

revealed by statistics, and those identified anecdotally by local people. “It was interesting that people’s perceptions of the key issues that needed to be addressed married very closely to what was suggested by analysis of local crash statistics,” she said. The targeted local strategies to reduce the number and severity of road crashes in Albury will focus on several priority areas. The council will review the plan in five years. The draft plan is on exhibition for 28 days, providing people a chance to comment.

A special look at crime By BLAIR THOMSON AS the bodies fell on the streets of Melbourne at the height of the gangland war several years ago, the public watched on with morbid fascination. Never before had there been such a bloody and public war of revenge, fought out by high profile criminals with front-page celebrity status and enough callous to kill in front of children or open fire in a crowded pub. Investigative journalist and author Andrew Rule, who will speak about the gangland war and other crimes at the Albury Entertainment Centre on Saturday, September 11, was one of the reporters covering the violence. He told NewsWeekly that the public has always had a fascination with the seedy underbelly of society. “I think the wickedness has always been compelling,” he said. “When you look at the history of storytelling and drama, it’s full of crime stories in a sense; the

things that have fascinated people throughout the ages are sex, death and drama, and crime touches those things. “Whether it’s Macbeth or Homicide or The Wire, they’re all versions of that theme, it’s not like it’s exactly a new phenomenon.” As a journalist at The Age and writer of the highly successful Underbelly series with John Sylvester, he has covered a lot of crime stories. But nothing prepared him for the enormity of the gangland war in Melbourne, which claimed more than 30 lives. “I was surprised by the sheer scale of it,” Mr Rule said. “Once those things get started, vendettas mean there’s payback each time and it feeds itself to a certain extent. “The interest in it became who was the next one and that built massive public interest in it because of the tension, that’s why that whole story is so compelling and made the series and tie-in books enormously popular.”

Despite criticism that media coverage, movies and television series’ like Underbelly unjustly glamorise the lives of gangsters and criminals, Mr Rule believes crime is a sordid way to make a living. “The naive and the foolish might think there’s some sort of glamour associated with it ... I certainly don’t think that, I think the opposite is true,” he said. “The bottom line for criminals is they end up in jail or dead or broke, mostly.” While gangland figures will make up a portion of his talk at the Albury Entertainment Centre, Mr Rule has plenty of other stories that he’s covered in his three decade plus career to talk about. “I’ll be talking about a life of crime writing,” he said. “I’ll have some more stories that I’ve gathered over the years writing about true crime.” Andrew Rule will talk at the Albury Entertainment Centre tomorrow, Saturday, September 11 from 3pm as part of Write Around The Murray. Enquiries to 6023 8333.

Sustainable houses to open their doors

FOUR homes in the Wodonga area will open for Sustainable House Day on Sunday, September 12. The houses, located in William Street, Central Place, Argyle Close and Drewett Road, will be open to the public between 10am to 4pm, and entry is free. Local community group, the Border Eco Living Program, will assist in the management of these houses for the inspections. They are part of around 200 sustainable private houses and display houses, featuring a variety of sustainable ideas, that will open their doors for the ninth annual Sustainable House Day across the state.

They will showcase environmentally sustainable and innovative ideas that invest in renewable energy, recycling and other practices designed to reduce their carbon footprint. “Sustainable House Day, a free event presented by Solar Shop Australia, provides a unique opportunity for people to meet with home owners who have been there, done that and are able to provide unbiased advice about their own personal experience,” event organiser Judy Celmins said. “The day is a fantastic opportunity for people to see practical examples of how to integrate sustainability into their own homes.”

Mrs Celmins said Sustainable House Day was all about action, rather than words. “Nine out of 10 visitors to last year’s event said it had increased their likelihood of using sustainable practices in their own homes,” she said. “This shows the day is making a difference in the fight to reduce the drain on our resources.” For more information visit www. The site contains links to detailed information contained on www. about each house, with the ability to communicate with homeowners.

G-G Bryce to open Henty Field Days

THE Governor-General Quentin Bryce will open this year’s Henty Machinery Field Days. She will attend the field days on Tuesday, September 21, in the early afternoon during which time she will conduct the official opening and inspect the site. The Kapooka Military Band will perform at the site during the official opening. The field days will be held from September 21 to 23. Meanwhile the Tractor and Machinery Association says September is an ideal time to shop around for the best deals on new machinery. Henty is ideally timed for customers wanting to purchase machin-

ery for the 2011 cropping season, according to TMA executive director Richard Lewis. “Without a doubt the best deals are to be had on those machines which can be ordered well ahead of when needed,” Mr Lewis said. “That allows the dealer to get a better deal off his supplier, who gets a better deal from forward ordering from the factory.” Mr Lewis said making deals was only one benefit from attending a well organised field day event such as Henty. A recent TMA conference heard that farm machinery was one of the most searched topics on the internet by farmers, second to the weather.

“However, nothing beats face-toface contact when investing in machinery,” Mr Lewis said. “We are still a long way off ordering a machine over the internet. “It’s great entree … you get all the background and work out what you need to take a closer look at, but field days offer the chance to learn exactly how it will operate in your situation.” The other value of HMFD is networking and talking to other farmers who have followed a similar path. “Two neighbours can get the same outcome from two totally different farming systems, each of whom thinks they have the ideal,” Mr Lewis said.

Art is part of her life By AMY WARNOCK THE saying “a picture tells a thousand words” sums up Beverley Johnson’s love for painting. The 74-year-old is a resident at The Grange in Wodonga and took up painting 12½ years ago after retiring from her career as a librarian. Mrs Johnson said she has always had a love for painting, but wasn’t encouraged when she was younger due to her disability. “I was born with cerebral palsy, so I don’t always have control of my hands,” she said. “I can no longer do big painting as I don’t have the facilities or the space. “I am limited to smaller works now and am losing the use of my left hand. “Sometimes I keep going when I shouldn’t and mess up things.” The passion for art runs in her family with her sister a budding oil painter and her lategrandfather also an artist. Many of her paintings are from places she has visited, with her room decorated with two of her paintings and a lead drawing of the Northern Territory outback. Mrs Johnson visited 35 countries with her late husband, but has spent most of her life in


the North East of Victoria. “I do quite a few landscapes, the odd flower and people,” she said. “I use pen, ink, pencil and watercolours.” She won first and second prize in the open and senior sections at this year’s art show at the Wodonga Show with a watercolour and ink landscape, and a watercolour landscape of gum trees. Mrs Johnson usually has a story to tell about each of her paintings, which are available to purchase from various local events and galleries. Her artworks will be on display at The Grange’s open day and unique car show on Saturday, October 30, as part of the Senior Celebrations festival. The Grange is one of the region’s most luxurious aged care facilities and has majestic views of the golf course. The free open day will run from 10am to 2pm at the Grange which is located at 240 Felltimber Creek Road, Wodonga. For further information, please contact 6043 5000.

By AMY WARNOCK WHETHER you are an old hand or just a novice, there will be golf for enthusiasts of all abilities at this year’s Senior Celebrations festival. For the beginners, come and try golf will be offered each Thursday during the month of October at Gateway Driving Range on Plunketts Road, Wodonga. Ray Matheson, from the Gateway Driving Range, said all seniors were welcome to have a go at golf anytime between 9am and 4pm. “Come out to West Wodonga, show your seniors card and get your free bucket of golf balls and a club,” he said. “Then you can practice your swing by hitting a few balls.” And after you have finished you don’t have to go and pick up the balls yourself. If you are an experienced golfer, you are invited to take part in the week-long veteran’s golf tournament to be held at SS&A Wodonga during the first week of October. The tournament is open to all lady golfers who are over 50 years and male golfers over 55 years. The cost for players will be $22 per day. Tournament director Max Mueller said he was expecting 130 veterans to play each day. “Last year, we averaged 110 golfers a day,” he said. “Our oldest veteran was around 80 with the lowest handicap sitting at three. “This year, we are hoping to attract more golfers from the local area.” The tournament, supported by major sponsor Alatalo Bros and 18 other local businesses, will conclude with a presentation and din-

ner dance on the last day of play, Friday, October 8, at SS&A Albury. You can enter the veteran’s golf tournament by contacting Max Mueller by phone on 6059 2567 or by emailing him at Entries will be received for the event up until Friday, October 1.

Wodonga Senior Celebrations

Men with shed of their own Keeping active and helping the community By AMY WARNOCK THE Wodonga Men’s Shed has been busy working on many different community projects since its inception in February last year. The group has 30 members with many more expected to renew their memberships in the coming weeks. The shed they work out of is located behind Emerald House in Wodonga, which is operated by one of their major sponsors, Upper Murray Family Care. Wodonga Council awarded the group a neighbourhood power grant to build the shed, which houses donated equipment from Bunnings Warehouse and various deceased estates. There is also an adjoining shed that houses materials such as timber and metal. Secretary Ron Lutton said one of the main aims of the group is men’s health. “The group comes together to socialise, which keeps you active and your mind going,” he said. “It is something to get out of bed for.” The group meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to noon to work on community projects, and enjoy a morning tea. Some of their current projects include making scooter racks for St Monica’s Primary School as part of the council’s Streets Ahead project, providing the edges for the Bravehearts’ community garden at Belvoir Park and making wooden crosses for a priest to give to patients in hospital. Wodonga Men’s Shed will take part in

ART: Students Loretta O’Leary, Phoebe Adams, Gemma Vearing and Taylor Hulme with artist Janene Castillo put the finishing touches to another piece.

Youngsters to show wild side By KEN DYASON A GROUP of teenagers will present their wild side in an art exhibition opening at Wodonga Arts Space next Friday, September 17. The group of 12, including some youngsters with disabilities, have spent up to 30 hours each producing giant masks and puppets that express a side of their personalities they would not normally reveal. Artist Janene Castillo has helped the youngsters bring their wild fantasies to life. “We asked them to tell us their idea of wild, and most of them talked about crazy wild,” Ms Castillo said. “One of them said she would like to be a butterfly and be able to fly, so she helped produce a large butterfly.” The students involved will feature in a small presentation about their ideas before those at the opening are invited to inspect their work. The opening is at

5.30pm and anybody interested in seeing their work is invited to attend. Among the giant masks on display will be a jester and a cat. There will also be two puppets that are over 2m tall. Each of the participants will also display personal face masks made during their weeks of activities, Wild Side is a production of Wodonga Council’s youth services team. Upper Murray Family Care through its Interchange program has also been involved in the project with the masks and puppets produced at the Upper Murray Nordsvan Drive offices. Members of the Wodonga Freeza group have also volunteered to help the project as have family members of the children involved. Wild Side will continue at Arts Space until Saturday, October 9. Admission is free.

UNVEILED: Ken Raff’s “Conversations with Landscape” exhibition will be showcased at the GIGS Gallery through September. Picture: ROD HARDINGE By PAT KOOPMAN ARTIST Ken Raff always thought his first exhibition at the GIGS Art Gallery would feature his works in sculpture. After all, Ken is best known throughout the Border for this form of art. But he has always painted and it is his paintings which are now being showcased in his first exhibition at the gallery. Ken drew on his experiences in the Outback as the catalyst behind the inspiration for his paintings. “It all starts with painting on site,” Ken explained to NewsWeekly at last Friday night’s exhibition opening. “When I get to a site I look for beautiful spots and I stand for about three hours and paint.

“I try and do three paintings a day … that’s in watercolour and gouache, which is opaque watercolour. “Then I come back and use the feelings that I’ve had, the experience that I’ve had and photographs that I’ve taken to then work up studio pieces. “This exhibition is actually a combination of the two, which I don’t normally do.” The Outback is fantastic because man is not the centre, according to Ken. “When you get out there it’s horizon, it’s where the sky meets the land and you can see it for miles and miles. “You get up on a rocky outcrop and you’re not the centre of the universe … you’re just a dot in time and that’s very

humbling, but it’s also healing. “You’re in balance out there, you can’t race, you can’t do anything … all you can do is enjoy.” Ken has always been fascinated by colour, creating and ideas. “I’m a control freak and artists are the greatest control freaks because we do our own thing, so it lets me be myself and I’ve had a very supportive family who have allowed me to do that all the way through,” he said. The “Conversations with Landscape” exhibition at the GIGS Art Gallery at Gateway Arts Village on the Lincoln Causeway will run throughout September. The gallery is open from 10am-4pm, Tuesday to Sunday, each week. Entry is free.

WORKS by Border artist Tracie MacVean have been showcased at Creator’s Artspace at the Gateway Village. This work was produced as part of her Diploma of Fine Arts and was her first independently organised exhibition. “I have been studying Fine Arts at Albury TAFE for 2½ years and I plan to get my degree at university,” she told NewsWeekly. “In the meanwhile my goal is to become more involved in the art world and I think this exhibition will be a step closer to getting known and a positive beginning to an art career.” She explained the inspiration behind her exhibition “Presence,” which concluded on Tuesday. “There is a physical presence in my hand paintings which grew out of an interest in hand gestures,” Tracie said. “I tried to capture the emotions displayed in simple hand motions, with research into sign language and the historical symbolism of hand gestures in western art through the ages.”

Creative streak runs in Suzannah’s family SUZANNAH Lees has been drawing and painting since she was old enough to hold a pencil or paintbrush. With parents and many family members who were artists, she feels that creativity is firmly entrenched in the family genes, and that time spent doing any sort of art is good for the soul. Her exhibition will be at the Creator’s Artspace from Saturday, September 18, to Tuesday, September 21. It will be open to the public from 10am to 4pm. It will be her first exhibition in Albury Wodonga.

“In my village where I grew up there’s a pub and half a dozen houses. It’s a farming community but, because of the drought there’s definitely been no work out there... so this job was a rare opportunity.”

ES, I do recall Dorothea, that the “green and shaded lanes” and “ordered woods and gardens” were not for you; rather your love lay in the “ sweeping plains “ and “rugged mountain ranges” of the “sunburnt country”. I must hasten to respond to this latter sentiment with “me too, me too” but at the same time acknowledging that I am greedy. I just have to embrace both scenes. Recently home from a couple of weeks hiking across England, I am still reeling from the surfeit of garden and horticultural immersion. Along the byways, bridleways and age old paths connecting each wee village and hamlet were the wild flowers of high summer; Scabious, Buttercups, Foxgloves, Campanu-

las, Cornflowers and Ragged Robins, and on the high moors of Yorkshire the Heather was a spreading carpet of soft mauve. Trudging into a village for each night’s accommodation we were, as are most Australian visitors to the old country, in awe of the ubiquitous pub baskets simply cascading with magical mixes of hot colour and foliage. The grand trees, Oaks, Beech, Limes and flowering Chestnut, nurtured in deep moist soils in park settings, stopped us many a time in our tracks. Oh to be able to grow the glorious Copper Beech! On then to planned visits to a few special gardens to revel in the kaleidoscope of blazing perennials, graceful grasses and beautiful, shrubbery, completely unscathed by any hot summer winds. Of course there is much sighing and wistful envy in our appreciation of all this mild climate planting. After such visual feasting, we turn to home but the first hours back in Terra Australis are a revelation. Continued page 26

Wine and war – stories from the conflict Winelovers PERSPECTIVE WITH

t is a trite statement to say that war is a tragedy and that no good comes of it. And other quotations abound, from the poignant “In war there are no unwounded soldiers” – José Narosky to the flippant “Draft beer, not people” – Bob Dylan. Many years ago I read an excellent book by Don and Petie Kladstrup called “Wine and War” (Coronet Books), a story they said was about “the French, the Nazis and France’s greatest treasure”. On rereading the book recently, I was struck with the incongruity that, in amongst the maelstrom of conflict, life went on for the French and their resistance to the Nazis was peppered with humour and eccentric behavior, as well as of course bravery and loss.

Historical connections Although France and Germany have been “at it” for centuries, in the 1930’s the debacle of World War I was still a recent memory. Notwithstanding that, France and Germany enjoyed excellent commercial relations, not the least of which was in the wine trade. Prominent Germans were close friends with the leading wine families in Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, often to the degree that they were godparents of each other’s children.

Hitler’s grand plan With the onset of war, Hitler was no mug. Although he had an aversion to wine, he recognised immediately its enormous economic value and did not hesitate to set up a program of control and pillaging that would eventually bring the French wine trade to its knees. When Hitler finally suicided in his Berlin bunker, in his retreat at Berchtesgarden (the “Eagle’s Nest”) hundreds of thousands of bottles of premium French wine were discovered (a source of delight to the liberating French troops who stormed the retreat at the war’s end!). To consolidate his grip on the wine trade, Hitler appointed weinfuhrers to each of the key French wine districts, giving them virtual autonomy over the local wine trade and charging them with the responsibility to ensure a constant supply to the Fatherland. Each weinfuhrer negotiated prices with local growers (usually “bargain basement”) and (in theory) supervised the quality of the product being shipped to Germany.

The extent of the pillaging The quantities of wine stolen from the French by the invading forces, and thereafter “siphoned off” to the Wehrmacht, beggars belief in its volume. In 1940, as the Nazis crossed into France from Belgium, one Parisian restaurateur knew the Nazis would enter Paris in short order. Of the 100,000 bottles in his precious cellar, the owner resigned himself to the fact that it was impossible to hide it all. He chose 20,000 of the very best bottles, especially those from the classic 1867 vintage. One month later, an emissary from Fieldmarshal Herman Goering visited the restaurant (which happened to be La Tour d’Argent, one of the most famous restaurants of Paris) and asked to see the cellar, and “especially the bottles from 1867”. Being told that the vintage had all been drunk, the emissary and his troops searched unsuccessfully for the wine in the spacious cellars of the restaurant. Finally they gave up (the wine had been bricked behind a wall), but they did not leave empty handed – all 80,000 remaining bottles of wine were seized. It was a small taste of things to come. Each year during the war, about 320 million bottles were shipped to Germany.

The war in Champagne In the first few weeks of the occupation, nearly two million bottles were seized by Nazi soldiers – the Champagne weinfuhrer (one Otto Klaebisch) was also demanding a half million bottles per week be supplied to Germany. Interestingly, much of this Champagne was destined for the front, undoubtedly to

RUTHLESS: The Nazis gave no quarter to anyone who opposed them. cheer up the otherwise dismal troops (many of whom were freezing their proverbials off in Russia). Still, the supply of Champagne also became an interesting source of intelligence for the Resistance. When a major military step was being taken, the logistics team in Berlin insisted on Champagne being forwarded in advance to that area to “fortify” the new troops. It did not take much math and calculation for the Resistance to work out the number of soldiers involved, and the likely location of the new campaign, and for this information to be passed on to the Allies. In the early days of the war, prior to the Nazi invasion, French troops had a standing allocation of a litre of wine per soldier per day! One can imagine the interesting exchange of gunfire that must have occurred in those early weeks, between what must have been basically “pie-eyed” adversaries! Even in France today, there is lingering bitterness about the Nazi invasion, the damage that was done to the vineyards, and the looting that took place. The close proximity of Champagne to Germany did not help, with shells literally passing over the vines from guns just across the German border. Some years ago, I visited the Chateau (now restored) of the Comtes de Dampierre in Chenay. A genial host, and the quintessential aristocrat that he was, the Comtes showed us the rear garden of his home (saying “zat was zee German lines”) then took us through the home to the front door and pointed across the road (saying “zat was zee French lines”). As one would expect, the Chateau was razed to the ground in the ensuing firefight, but has now been rebuilt as it was.

Birth of the resistance

The tyranny of the weinfuhrer

The prospect that their beloved “jewels” were to be consumed by the Nazis filled wine growers with anger – the Champagne wine houses fought back by gathering their finest vintages and bricking them up in the rambling “crayeres” (tunnels) dug below the cities of Reims and Epernay, to secure them from pillaging. (On one occasion, a Champagne grower had the temerity to do a trade with the local weinfuhrer, exchanging some

Pressed with ever increasing demands for wine of high quality, the weinfuhrers escalated their threats against the local wine trade, and acts of violence and incarceration became more common. That said, many weinfuhrers were decent people, and intelligent enough to understand that the war would inevitably end, so that thereafter it would be nice to be on reasonable terms with the French wine merchants. As I said,

HISTORY: The Champagne countryside was not always as peaceful as it is today.

many of them were already close friends of the French, and thus most tried to see out the war on their “little patch” with the least amount of trouble and inconvenience. On occasions, a weinfuhrer would plead with a local wine merchant, explaining that if some compromise was not reached, there was a strong chance the weinfuhrer in question would be sent to the Russian front and that his replacement may not be nearly as cordial. In those circumstances, the merchant would usually compromise his position and give just enough ground to keep the status quo. The more aggressive and unfriendly weinfuhrers were less gentle in their treatment. On one famous occasion, a wine merchant was (unusually) invited to share a bottle of “bubbly” with the local weinfuhrer. The quality of the wine was so bad (by design, of course!) that the weinfuhrer had “copped an earful” from Berlin, with suggestions of an early posting to a colder climate. Try as he may, the wine merchant could not keep the grimace from his face as he drank the undrinkable “bubbly”. The weinfuhrer then burst into an unexpected fit of anger, and the merchant was dispatched to the cells. Unfortunately, this became an all too regular occurrence, with prominent wine identities being sent to concentration camps, or indeed receiving the death sentence. The pressure was mounting.

So how did it all end? Well, that is a story for another day. I hope that you have enjoyed these anecdotes – this marvellous book confirmed to me that the civility of wine, and of the people who make and drink it, can survive world conflict. Who knows, maybe one day an exchange of views over a bottle of something decent may be all that is needed to avoid the next major war. As Colonel Potter in the television show M*A*S*H once famously said – “Sometimes I think it should be a rule of war that you have to see somebody up close and get to know him before you can shoot him”.

That done, the Champenois then ensured that their worst cuvees only were shipped to the Nazis. To ensure no mistake, the labels were clearly endorsed with words such as “Reserved for the Wehrmacht” next to the Nazi eagle symbol. All Frenchmen “in the know” knew to avoid these bottles like the plague – they were inferior wines. And just to make sure about quality control, the Resistance had a wonderful habit of visiting railroad sidings in the dead of night, identifying the barrels of wine that were stamped with the Wehrmacht symbol, removing the “bung” (cork stopper) and relieving themselves into the barrel, thus ensuring a final layer of flavour and complexity reserved only for the invader!

Feet, don’t fail me now: A walk across England

YORKSHIRE: THE Moors and farmland were all in a day’s walk. I could easily imagine how spooky it could be up here in poor weather. Picture: ROBYN FLEMMING

My Own




alking across northern England could be described as a walk in the park only if a 320km hike could be considered a walk and the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors a park. I’ve just completed the 13-day Coast-toCoast Walk from St Bees, on the Irish Sea, across to Robin Hood’s Bay, a former smuggler’s cove on the North Sea coast. The route followed the “unofficial” expedition described by Alfred Wainwright in his book A Coast to Coast Walk. Some people walk it in the reverse direction, though west to east is the most popular route. Many people complete it unassisted, though the way isn’t clearly marked and requires excellent map-reading skills to stay on track. My navigation skills are appalling, so I took the easier option of going with a group on a guided walk. North West Walks (www. provided a guide, Steve, to lead the way. It also arranged accommodation for our group of 12 in bed-andbreakfasts and pubs along the route, and daily transport of our luggage. The walk requires quite a high level of fitness. We covered anywhere from 13 to 32km a day, without a day’s break. And much of it is very strenuous walking. The first five days, which we spent in the Lake District, involved a lot of clambering up and down ridges and peaks. We saw only a few lakes. At Grasmere, I went for an early-morning

run beside the lake and visited the cemetery where the poet William Wordsworth and various members of his family are buried. In Hong Kong in the 1980s I had named my editing business ‘Wordswork’, and I wanted to pay my respects in the hope that I might be forgiven my cheek. The highest point of the walk is at Kidsty Pike, on day five. It’s a long, steep, tiring ascent, but we were rewarded by views back across the Lake District and towards the Pennines. By this stage our group had lost our youngest member. Hannah had suffered very bad blisters on the first couple of days, despite wearing well-worn boots, and had very reluctantly retired. I had worn my new boots only once, when climbing Mont Thabor in France a few weeks earlier, but they proved to be very kind to my feet. My hiking companions were mainly English, with an American runner friend and two Canadians added to the mix. We bonded easily and well from the start, which added to the fun of the walk for many of us. From the Lake District we crossed some undulating farmland until we reached the Yorkshire Dales. My race with personal trainer Mat over the last 50 or so metres to the top of Nine Standards Rigg, on the border of Cumbria and Yorkshire, was a hoot. I had no hope of staying with him, of course, but it was a fun way to complete the climb. The group of nine stone cairns on the summit dates back to ancient times. We then spent a couple of hours walking through very boggy terrain. I found the best way to cross a bog is to try and flit like an insect across the surface, using reeds and grass clumps for purchase. In the Yorkshire Dales we passed through areas that were once settled by Viking raiders and had more recently been mined for lead. It was bleakly beautiful.

After a couple of days of walking through farmland we reached the North York Moors, where the purple heather was still in flower. We were held up in places by beaters steering grouse into the line of fire of shooting parties. The moors were high and featureless. We had fine days for most of our walk, but I could easily imagine how spooky it could be up here in poor weather. We spent a night at the Lion Inn, at Blakey, which has been dishing up massive servings of steak and ale pie to travellers since the 16th century. Our hopes for a ghost or headless horseman sighting weren’t realised, unfortunately. On the last day of our walk, we ate lunch in a field within sight of Whitby, the former home of Captain James Cook. The final few miles along the coast south to Robin Hood’s Bay provided spectacular views, though our destination stayed tantalisingly out of view until the very end.

We followed the tradition of throwing into the sea the pebble we had collected at the start of our walk on the east coast. We then went to Wainwright’s Bar to sign the book and have a well-earned drink. A long-distance walk is a wonderful way to see a country. The terrain during the Coast-to-Coast Walk varied enormously as we moved from west to east: from rocky mountain paths and limestone plateaus, to country lanes, rolling hillsides and farmland, to moors. Even during the course of each day we walked through a dozen or more distinct types of landscape. We were often in very remote locations, with surprisingly long views. My 320km walk across England began with a single step. And then I just kept putting one foot in front of the other. You can follow my adventures on

There’s really no place like home From page 23 The Hume Highway is ablaze with various Wattles and it is just magnificently golden. Patches of the old Sarsparilla, Hardenbergia violacea, throw splashes of deep purple on rocky outcrops and embankments. It is the very best of welcomes and instantly any lingering discontent with our gardening lot down under is banished. Gold and purple are such strong, standout colours and they suit the greyness of the prevailing gum trees and the severity of topography and climate. Such a visual transformation goes a long way to compensating for the harshness of the coming summer. The solid rains of the past month too will stand all our trees, both exotic and indig-

enous, in good stead; sub surface moisture is so vital for standing up to the rigors of the summer drought. Back home (and madly pulling out weeds that took advantage of my absence) I assess my perspective of life as a gardener; yes, I’ve been titillated and inspired by gardens and plants in a softer climate (especially by the offerings of “Rosemoor”, the Royal Horticultural Society garden deep in Devon, but more about this another day) – the great tall stemmed heads of Perennial Phlox in the prettiest of shades, the standout Clematis clinging to archways and stone walls, the Hydrangeas and in particular the huge white panicled H. paniculata varieties and the vibrant colours of the Astilbes, but these are but summer show-offs. The rest of the year is spent in planning for this one magnificent display, and if, as it often does in that part of the world, the rain falls unceasingly, the hour of triumph is gone. I know, yes, spring is delightful – Bluebells carpeting woodlands and Daffodils and Rhododendrons capturing all the attention. But I really have to admit that a winter in an English garden would soon put paid to any dissatisfaction with my own lot – remember last (northern) winter’s severity and photos on the telly of snow piled high? Imagine not being able to grow an orange tree outside, or having to replant easy plants such as Geraniums from scratch every spring? Come February I know that I will retract these sentiments but just now, after wonderful rain and with a splendid spring slowly unfolding, I am siding with Dorothea; summer gardening here is taxing but over the whole year, there are simply far more suitable days in which to garden and we adapt to changing circumstances. But I still love the “brown streams and soft dim skies …”

STUNNING: The display of Heather on the North Yorkshire Moors is a sight to behold.

From page 32 The master bedroom is equipped with a large built-in-robe, while a ceiling fan will also add to your comfort. It also offers soothing views to your very own private outside fernery. The master bedroom is complemented by a double vanity ensuite, complete with double shower. Adjoining the master bedroom at the front of the home is the study. The home includes two separate living zones where the family can sit back and relax while enjoying the company of each other and visitors. The kitchen includes a walk-in-pantry, along with a dishwasher, electric oven and a gas cook top. The well appointed kitchen comes complete with a slate floor. One of two split systems is located in the dining area, along with downlights to suit whatever the occasion may be. The laundry, linen press and separate toilet are also situated in the “heart” of the home. The other two bedrooms incorporate built-in-robes and ceiling fans. Floor heating also adds to your comfort, while the bathroom comes complete

with a “Fantastic” heater and skylight. The two bedrooms are situated at the other end of the home to the master bedroom. An above ground in-ground pool is sure to be a centre point of home activities during the summer months. There is also an outside undercover paved area where you can just sit back and relax. Mandarins, lemons and oranges are also grown in the backyard, which also includes a garden shed. A double carport will keep your vehicles out of the elements, while the private fernery, with views from the master bedroom, is another eye-catching feature. The yard is fully secure … ideal for young children and pets. It’s location in the highly sought after Federation Park area of Wodonga is another big plus. The home is close to the Federation Clinic and a children’s playground. A bus stop is located just across the road for your added convenience and it is also in close proximity to the Barton Street shopping precinct. All that is missing to complete the picture is you!

Pearson takes win for Genesys team AFTER its fleeting visit to Albury for the Ride for Charity, the Genesys Pro Cycling team tasted success at the Tour of the prestigious Murray River event held last week. In his best result for nearly 12 months, 27-year-old team member, Joel Pearson has taken the overall honours in the event. A major operation just four months ago hampered his early 2010 season but he fought back and gradually returned to form and said it was an amazing feeling to finally win a major Australian stage race. “This is my biggest enjoyment because it was such a hard fought battle from start to finish,” Pearson said. “I’ve won now so I believe I can win these big races and build on it … I’m feeling pretty good right now.” The Genesys team finished second in the team classification and now takes a strong lead in the Cycling Australia National Road Team series. ALBURY Cougars under 18 boys team has finished third in the NSW State Cup basketball competition held at Penrith sports stadium. The team competed in the division two competition for NSW Southern Junior League finishing second with what coach Andrew Harmer described as a great effort. “It was a good all-round effort from the boys throughout the year,” Harmer said. “They always dug in deep and did the best they could … they showed nothing but heart all year … I think we surprised a few teams. “A few games got away from



us … games that we lost by seven or eight points we had given them a lead of 30 … but overall they went well.” Harmer said the determination the boys showed carried them well in the State Cup, noting the highlight of the weekend was probably their clash with Gosford Rebels. “It was a see-sawing game,” he said. “We got up by two points which put us into the semi final. “All the boys played well … Luke Campbell shot a lazy 43. “We looked at the score sheet and couldn’t believe it … he’s still a bottom age player!” Harmer said he hoped to have Campbell again for the next season but noted he was also a good football player, typical of so many young sports persons on the Border. Campbell finished third in total points scored for the weekend and played one game less than the top two scorers. “Luke averaged something like 25 points a game over the course of SJL,” Harmer said. “He averaged around 32 for the State Cup weekend. “We also took Jacob Cincurak away … he’s bottom age 16s … he had a great weekend too. “Dylan Hall, (captain) led well from the front.” THE days of events at the Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre being disrupted by wa-

ter leaking through the roof will soon be a thing of the past. Work will begin next week on a $220,000 roof upgrade. The money has come from the federal government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program. First built in 1977 as a two court basketball stadium, the centre has been developed in stages to its current structure. It now provides a five court stadium, aquatics area, gymnasium, aerobics and childcare. The city’s director community development Patience Harrington said there had been issues with the roof leaking that resulted in a number of disruptions to the normal operations of the centre, particularly, during major rain events. “The leaking roof is due to normal wear and tear over the years, and we are grateful to have been given funding to help fix the problem,” she said. “The roof upgrade will specifically replace and improve aged sections of the roof over the five court stadium and the aerobics room.” THE Australian Sports Commission has launched the ‘Play for Life … Join a Sporting Club’ campaign aimed at encouraging parents to consider club sports for their children and raising the participation rate of primary school children in sporting clubs. In the NSW Riverina and North East Victorian regions more than 100 primary school children have been invited to participate in a Pathways to Soccer gala event to be held at Kelly Park, Wodonga on Monday, September 13.

Mark Brown from the Australian Sports Commission said there was a clear link between playing sport and wellbeing. “Sport is an aid to good health on so many levels, socially, physically, mentally and cognitively,” he said. Junior coaches from the Albury Wodonga Football Association and representatives from Football Federation Victoria and Football NSW will be on hand to provide children with the opportunity to try a variety of soccer games and activities. AWFA administrator, Jacqui Finlay said the benefits of being part of a sporting club were endless. The gala day will take place at Kelly Park, Wodonga from 10.30am to 12.30pm on Monday, September 13. FOR those wanting something cool for their child to do this summer get down to Lavington Swim Centre on October 4 where the Playground to Podium (P2P) diving club will be holding a come and try and registration day from 4.30 to 6pm. The club will then hold sessions for all levels of divers on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays throughout school term four 2010 and term one 2011 catering for all divers over the age of five. P2P has been in existence for five years and has achieved great results in that time. Their qualified diving instructors have ensured the success of local divers with many achieving medal status at national competition level.

Have fun and learn the game By TREVOR JACKSON NOT all sports were affected by the torrential rain over the weekend with Albury junior indoor netball going ahead as planned. Some doubt was thrown on the competition with leaks in the roof of the Albury Sports Stadium but it didn’t stop the enthusiasm that has defined the competition this season. The junior competition includes all age groups from seven up to under 18s with around 80 teams participating on any Saturday morning. Organiser of the competition, Trish Cerminara, said the participation rate was healthy. “It’s a competition that caters for the elite sports person as well as those that just want to come along and enjoy the sport,” she said. “We have section one and two throughout all our grades and we believe that section two should be a grade for your general everyday netballer, who just comes along to have a good game. “Section one is more for the top age girls or the girls that want to excel in their netball career, and want to play serious netball. “So it’s a casual competition and a social competition but it’s also an elite competition … you

ENJOYMENT: Devils’ Alaana Northey looks to pass off in the Saturday morning indoor netball competition. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON can choose where you want to play.” The organisation also runs a coaching and umpire development program to teach those interested in officiating the game the fundamentals of the task in front of them. “We coach them and mentor them through, then they get to

go out onto the senior games,” Ms Cerminara said. “I guess you could say the culture of the stadium is that we provide, assist and nurture. “We provide both umpire development and player development.” She said the competition didn’t have representative teams

as such but were supportive of those teams in the competition that wanted to go away and play at the higher level. “We’ll pay their entry fee and umpire for the day and if they need transport and assistance for accommodation, we help there as well,” she said. “The whole idea is to keep it community based and inclusive, not exclusive.” The emphasis has been on improving the skills of teams that are not very competitive and it has been widely accepted by all involved, including a nine and under section, that it is based on development. The original competition began with 15 teams across all age groups and the numbers have now swelled to 120, including the senior competition, something Ms Cerminara put down to the nurturing nature of the competition. “In the nines we like to let every player play everywhere on the court,” she said. “One of my coaches once told me that when you could play every position you could call yourself a netball player.” For further information on the competition simply drop into the Albury Sports Stadium on a Saturday morning.

Award is recognition they really are good sports at Thurgoona

Bulldogs work to be seen as a family club

By TREVOR JACKSON THURGOONA football and netball club has been awarded for its hard work over the last few years by gaining the highest level in the Good Sports program. The club has reached the level three pinnacle of success through its education on alcohol consumption and behaviour through the club. The club has been involved with the Good Sports program since 2006 when it achieved the level one status. By late 2008 it achieved the level two status and has been going ahead in leaps and bounds since then. “We were given the award for the club of the year in the south-west region for 2008 and were runner up in the state club of the year,” club president, Tony Way said. The club has managed, in that time, to reduce its alcohol turnover from around 23 per cent five years ago to around 11 per cent now. Mr Way said despite the reduced alcohol turnover the dollar figure for the club hadn’t changed, just that everything else had picked up as a result. “It’s just a better family environment,” he said. “Now we’ve created a product where every member of the family is catered for. “We go from under 11 netball right up to adult sport and have 88 kids in Auskick. “It means the whole family can come in the same day at the same venue and play their sport, rather than have it spread over two days and different venues. “I think that’s what families want.” Mr Way said it was more than just the family environment the club was after. “Every club wants to be the family club,” he said. “We want more than that … we want to be the community club. “Whether you have families or you’re just married or middle aged or retirees … Thurgoona’s got that demographic … we want to have something for everybody.

“The committee has put a lot of work in and the people have responded by coming out to the footy.” The membership of the club has increased over the past few years from modest figures around the 100 mark to the current figure of close to 400. This has had a positive effect on revenue with their canteen takings up 300 per cent in that time and gate takings obviously on the rise as well. Mr Way said the education of players, spectators and members about the correct way to behave had a domino effect with people now receiving advice on correct behaviour, not just from committee members, but others at the games as well. “You can’t tell people they are doing the wrong thing if you haven’t told them what the right thing is,” he said. “Our code of conduct is all about saying ‘here’s the way we go about things’ … everyone knows about it and every member gets a copy of it when they join. “We’re serious about it … every club has rules but whether they are imposed or not is different altogether. “It’s very easy to have because it’s only a piece of paper, but it’s more than a piece of paper to us … it’s what we live by.” The club now plans to go one better than the 2008 award for regional winner and runner up in the state for the Good Sports program by taking out this year’s state award. “We won the award in 2008 because of the huge impact the program has had on our club,” he said. “It’s not all due to alcohol … there were a lot of things we needed to work on but it certainly helped with what we had to do. “It makes that much difference if parents can be confident. “They know there’s going to be alcohol around but if they are confident it is managed correctly and the right message is sent out they are a lot more comfortable. “I think parents are very comfortable at our club.”

Timor trio pedal their way to help charity By TREVOR JACKSON THE generosity of Border residents has been highlighted this week by a fund-raising effort to help the people of East Timor which has raised a much needed $6500. The donations came about after three local residents, James Sloan, Leigh Privett and Pat Giddings entered a mountain bike race, the Tour de Timor, put on by the East Timor Government next week as a means of raising awareness of the country and attracting tourism. They were then told of a charitable organisation, Klibur Domin, (KD) where Wodonga physiotherapist Dave Taylor volunteers his time to help with the health and wellbeing of the Timorese people. Klibur Domin, translates from

Tetun to English as “Caring With Love” and was set up by the RyderCheshire Foundation, a charitable organisation based in Australia. Mr Taylor has given up two years of his time to help these people and needed equipment for the centre to improve the services. The equipment ranged from balance pads to laminated posters and blood pressure monitors, totalling around $400. Mr Sloan sent emails to people he knew on the Border and to those in the cycling fraternity seeking donations and was amazed by the response he received. “I was overwhelmed with the response,” he said. “The majority of the money was raised on the Border. “It’s been fantastic … it means

we have been able to buy more for the Timorese people and more equipment can be purchased at a later date.” Mr Sloan said some of the things purchased were as simple as a pair of thongs for a Timorese child to wear. “They don’t have footwear,” he said. “Even a pair of thongs makes a big difference to these people … it’s like gold to a Timorese child.” Items we all take for granted are not available to the people of East Timor and although they regularly fish for food they don’t have access to basic equipment such as reels and hooks, items that will be purchased to make their life a bit easier. Other items purchased includ-

ed frisbees and t-shirts with all remaining funds being utilised for the KD centre, none of the money being whittled away by administration costs. It is the second running of the Tour de Timor and the race takes in some amazing country with gruelling climbs, spectacular mountain views and smooth seaside rides. The race is run over a five day period starting next Monday and takes in 410 kilometres of the countryside. It sets off from Dili and and the first overnight stop is at the town of Balibo, a place well known to Australians. The site of the Balibo 5 massacre and what has become known as Australia House will be a focal point for the three Border riders.

The ride then continues on through the farm plains and valleys of Maliana and Ermera before taking in the mountainous region of Ainaro and Maubisse then returning to Dili. Mr Sloan said that while the scenery was very spectacular in East Timor the infrastructure was very poor. He said the government of the country was trying to utilise its attributes to boost tourism, something that could become a major industry for them and add to their standard of living, and the Tour de Timor was a great way to showcase what they have to offer. He said being able to assist KD through the generosity of those living on the Border was a great way to help a struggling neighbour.

BOOST: Karyn Herzina hands a cheque from Joyce Mayne over to James Thompson.

Juniors gain from cash By BLAIR THOMSON A $1200 prize from Joyce Mayne will help future Border basketball stars. Karyn Herzina won the money after a Joyce Mayne promotion to help a local sporting club, and handed a cheque over to the Wodonga Basketball Association, which her daughter Kelsey plays for. James Thompson, coach of the association’s under 18 representative team, was pleased to receive the funds. “We’ll probably buy reverseable training tops for the girls; we’ve got 14 in our squad and they come in on Sunday with a mixture of singlets, so it will unify them at training,” he said. “It’s very helpful for us because the parents would otherwise have to pay for the tops, and the association spends a lot of money on representative basketball. “We put 17 teams into the Victorian country calendar each year, for seven or eight tournaments, so it’s a fair expense for the association but also the parents as well. “I’m very impressed with the prize and very thankful to Karyn and Joyce Mayne.”

Bulldogs bow out of the finals race

IN a tight tussle Thurgoona’s hopes of making the grand final in the Tallangatta league have been dashed by a persistent opposition, as much as the persistent rain. In another low scoring encounter Yackandandah managed to hold on and take the game by three points, with a score of 2.13 (25) to Thurgoona’s 2.10 (22). Thurgoona trailed by 10 points at the final break and with just four minutes on the clock Todd Miller goaled to give them a sniff of victory. Despite the ball remaining in the Bulldogs’ forward zone for the rest of the match they could only manage one point with Yackandandah holding on for the three point victory. The finals series seems to be taking its toll on the Sandy Creek ground with a spectator at the weekend’s game saying he’d seen wet grounds in the past, but never with a current! I guess with the amount of

rain over the last week it was to be expected but the Albury ground showed what can be achieved with a bit of work and financial input. Yackandandah now faces Beechworth for the holy grail of the competition and will need to up the ante if they are to be victorious. While Yackandandah was comfortably defeated by Thurgoona just a few short weeks ago, Beechworth returned the favour the following week thrashing the Bulldogs by close to 50 points. Although Yackandandah did bounce back the following week against Rutherglen they would certainly hold a great deal of respect for Beechworth and, should the weather not play a part, will have their work cut out. If it continues to rain, it’s anyone’s guess. I think Beechworth will have the goods to take the flag by a possible six goals. In other games Yackandan-

dah will face Wahgunyah in the reserves, the under 17s see Tallangatta take on Rutherglen while Wahgunyah are up against Rutherglen in the under 14s. Back to Thurgoona and their success this season in netball has paid off with the 18 and under team making it to the grand final after a hard fought 27-24 win over Rutherglen. Coach, Zanelle Gerecke, said the wet weather proved a real problem for both teams and it was more a matter of who could hold on the longest. “You couldn’t even call it netball,” she said. “There was a lot of yelling and a lot of inspiring words. “It wasn’t a skilful match … it was who had the most guts … who could be up at full time.” The girls now face Wodonga Saints for the flag with Wodonga having had the wood over the Bulldogs this season so far. The game will provide a great local derby for Border fans and

Pigeons, Hoppers: neither has hope against the Tigers

Border driver up with best From back page “Mid corner stuff we’re just as fast … entry and exit speeds are the same but just the acceleration down the straight … you can’t keep up.” After leading that race briefly then running second and clearing out from the rest of the field the dramas began to unfold allowing the field to catch back up and pass Chahda’s struggling Falcon. “I was in second and we’d gone … no one was going to catch us,” Chahda said. “I came through the sweeper and turned right and it went bang and pulled me left and I thought, ‘gee what’s happened here’. “I thought I’d popped a tyre, so I got off the throttle and limped around and by the time I got to the next corner the other guys had caught me so I let them by. “I got to the straight and realised it wasn’t a tyre so got going again, but it was hard work. “It’s worse than wrestling a gorilla … you turn in and it’s hard and you get mid corner and it wants to pull you back because you don’t have that power assist.” The four race series is based at Winton with the two remaining rounds to be completed in the coming months. Chahda said the series had now become quite exciting for him with his second place standing overall and the real opportunity to take out the top honours. “We’ve got to keep on the ball,” he said.

Damien Cupido takes a strong grab on his way to a 10 goal haul at Albury Sports Ground.

By TREVOR JACKSON ALBURY has cemented its position as favourites to take the O&M flag this season. The finals score reflected horrible conditions as Yarrawonga could just not match the Tigers’ determination. Sunday’s match was played in far better conditions with the Raiders going down to the Hoppers at Albury Sports ground, helped along by an in-form Damien Cupido, who provided the Hoppers with a great forward focal point. The ground was in amazing condition given the deluge throughout the week, with hardly a sign of wet weather. Cupido’s work up forward was inspiring but inaccurate kicking, possibly due to a greasy ball, could well have prevented him from adding an even more impressive total. Despite the loss the Raiders have certainly turned it on this season with a solid effort throughout to show they are now one of the powerhouse clubs in the league. North Albury now face Yarrawonga at John Flower Oval, Wodonga, in the preliminary final on Sunday and would surely be having nightmares from last time the two met. Some of the biggest cheers for the weekend were for Wangaratta Rovers’ A grade netballers who managed a one point win over Wodonga. Meanwhile, continuing his good form from the NewsWeekly tipping, Mark French from BF Panels has again taken the points in his 2AY tipping challenge. Last week included the AFL round of finals and he managed an impressive eight from nine, showing he may well be the best tipster on the Border! Mark has gone what appears to be the safe option and picked Yarrawonga to go through to that final weekend of football. Simon Corr has taken the same route despite the Hoppers’, and Cupido’s big performance last week. As far as Tallangatta league goes Simon has taken the sentimental choice and has given Yackandandah the nod, I think more to do with not wanting to revoke his life membership than anything else!

will be well worth making the trip to Sandy Creek to watch. “We’ve played them twice and lost by three and 15,” Mrs Gerecke said. “We’ve gone back to the drawing board and everybody is pumped and excited … we’ve got our game face on … we reckon we can come away with the goods.” Not to be outdone the Saints have managed a great result in their netball efforts with three teams making the grand finals, their younger sides looking strong with representation in the under 13s and 15s to add to the 18s. In A grade Mitta United take on Barnawartha while in B grade Chiltern are up against Kiewa Sandy Creek. Wodonga Saints face Kiewa Sandy Creek in the under 15s and Rutherglen in the under 13s. Good luck to all involved in the grand final matches and let’s hope for some nice weather during all games.

FAST STARTER: Amin Chahda with his V8 Falcon race car. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON

By TREVOR JACKSON BORDER motor racing driver Amin Chahda has taken his V8 Falcon to third place in round two of the Super Tin Top Victorian motor racing series held at Winton Motor Raceway. In the ďŹ nal race of the round, he beat a V8 Supercar off the line, only to see a faulty power steering pump cause him to drop several positions. But he was still able to keep in the race for the series. He now sits in second place with two rounds to complete. After initially competing at the ďŹ rst round for a bit of fun and to keep his driving up to date and ďŹ nishing second, Chahda decided to continue with the series. The series takes in all makes of vehicle ranging from V8 Falcons and Commodores to four cylinder and turbo charged cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had this turbo charged Volvo there,â&#x20AC;? Chahda said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It actually out-qualiďŹ ed us â&#x20AC;Ś it was fast, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing with the turbo cars, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to last.â&#x20AC;? Thirty two cars competed for the round, which Chahda said was very similar to the old touring car days of racing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just good fun,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I beat the Supercar off the line the commentator was going crazy â&#x20AC;Ś he knew mine wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a Supercar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously the Supercar got around me but it was pretty exciting for a while.â&#x20AC;? The V8 Supercar produces around 650 horsepower while Chahda was running his spare engine which produced around 400, making his starting line heroics even more impressive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up with them down the straights,â&#x20AC;? he said.
