Ferry ready for the flood of tourists

JOURNEY: The Wymah Ferry travels across Lake Hume at Granya, taking a car across to Wymah on the other side. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON

By BLAIR THOMSON WYMAH Ferry operator Mick Fabik is expecting one of the best tourist seasons for the area thanks to the rising water level of Lake Hume. The heritage listed cable ferry, which was built in 1946, takes at least 20 cars across Lake Hume from Wymah to Granya each day, with that figure expected to rise over summer. “It’s been operating for just on 12 months straight now,” Mr Fabik explained. “It’s historically shut down at 17 per cent water level, but the RTA has done quite a bit of work on both sides of the lake, so now it doesn’t need to shut down unless there’s bad weather. “Tourist-wise, there’s going to be heaps more coming here … it’s about bringing the tourists back again, because the levels have been so low for so many years. “I’m predicting the best year here in several years.” Mr Fabik took over from previous controller Lorraine Waite, who spent 23 years running the service, about a year ago. He’s contracted to operate the ferry by the NSW Roads and Transport Authority, and said it was a vital service for people on both sides of the border. “A stack of people use the ferry on a daily basis,” he said. “If they had to drive right around, you’re looking at a 100km drive, so it’s obviously very important for the locals.

Development brings metropolitan style to Border

City upgrade By PAT KOOPMAN A MODERN metropolitan townhouse lifestyle has reached Wodonga with the largest central redevelopment in the city’s history. Elmwood developer and builder Brendan Collins described the development as both “significant and exciting”. “It’s something we’ve worked towards for a long time and it’s great that it’s finally come to fruition and we’re happy about that,” Mr Collins told NewsWeekly.

“We’ve put a lot of research into develop actually what people want.” Mr Collins said the properties would appeal right across the spectrum of purchasers, whether they be owner-occupiers or investors. “Owner-occupiers are looking for a community, they’re looking not to be in one demographic on their own in one area,” he explained. “They’re looking for a culture mix, they’re looking for conve-



nience such as a medical centre, cafe … all those things that go with that. “They’re looking for architectural consistency, they’re looking for low maintenance and they’re looking for all those things that make it easy so the growth can occur in the property without any further demands on their resources.” The Elmwood development ticks all those boxes in a show of confidence in Wodonga as a growth centre.

One to four bedroom townhouses are part of the development. Mr Collins said Wodonga Council had been wonderful throughout the entire process. “They’ve been very supportive for us to go to this level and it’s been a pleasure to work with them,” he said. “They’re excited about it as well. “I think it’s working for everybody and it’s working for the environment.”



Wodonga Real Estate residential sales consultant and Elmwood project team leader Amanda Kotzur said the development represented something new for Wodonga. “It’s certainly a needed development in terms of people who are downsizing or looking to buy their first home or looking for a solid investment property ... it’s certainly the answer,” she said. “They are 7 Star energy rated and are very low maintenance.

POSTIVE: Robyn Watts believes the floods and heavy rain in the region have been positive for landholders and the environment. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON but then there’s also the connectivity aspect. “In some cases over the last many years, some rivers have gone back to separate water holes. “This will enable ďŹ sh and other organisms to move between different areas and drift downstream to other sites. “It also brings in a lot of small leaves and carbon organic matter which brings in nutrients that works right through the whole food chain ‌ it enables the whole food web to ourish.â€? Ms Watts said that dams have stopped the pulses of water which would otherwise occur naturally several times a year. “Since we’ve been in drought for quite a long period of time,

many of these rivers hadn’t seen these rises, in some cases since 1993 and other cases since 1998, depending on the river system,â€? she said. “The effect of the dams have been to dampen even the smaller pulses that would have gone through, because that water has been captured to reďŹ ll the dams during drought.â€? She added that much had been learnt from the oods. “It’s been great for properties and great for the environment,â€? she said. “I think a lot of people have learnt a lot from these oods. “While there’s been a bit of damage, on the whole, they’ve been great for landholders and the environment.â€?

Rotary gift helps build disabled playground By BLAIR THOMSON A $26,000 cheque given to Woodstock Support Incorporated disability group will help fund a playground for disabled children at Charles Sturt University in Thurgoona. Mike Kirby from the Rotary Club of Albury West handed the cheque over to Woodstock Sup-



port Inc chief executive ofďŹ cer Nigel Stone yesterday (Thursday). “We’re over the moon about getting a donation of that size, we think the facility will be great for the community,â€? Mr Stone said. “It’s money raised from this year’s Nail Can Hill run and it


follows a $10,000 cheque already handed over. “That money will go towards the building of a purpose-built playground for children with a disability.� The Wodonga Moteliers Association also handed a cheque worth $6000 over to the support group.

City living comes to the Border market From page 1 “You certainly don’t have to do anything to them in terms of mowing, it’s all synthetic turf with a little bit of landscaping ‌ nothing to do.â€? Ms Kotzur described Elmwood as being “certainly very metropolitanâ€?. “This is the way Wodonga is evolving,â€? she said. The Elmwood Group and Wodonga Real Estate held an information evening last Wednesday. Ms Kotzur described the night as a “huge successâ€?. “We had a lot of positive feedback from the night,â€? she said. “We’ve already had one (sale), so I’m looking forward to more very soon.â€?

albury wodonga weather

By BLAIR THOMSON HEAVY rainfall and ooding in North East Victoria will have enormous environmental and farming beneďŹ ts, according to a leading Charles Sturt University Thurgoona researcher. Aquatic scientist Associate Professor, Robyn Watts, told NewsWeekly the “pulsesâ€? of water caused by the heavy rain have helped to ush out and “resetâ€? river systems. She added that landowners have mainly seen the rainfall and oods as a positive. “I think it’s been really heartening to see that there’s been a generally overall positive story about the oods,â€? Ms Watts said. “While there’s initial concern about property damage and infrastructure damage, and rightly so, the overwhelming comments from a lot of landowners is that it’s been really great for their land. “Even for people out in the Western Districts ‌ people are saying even if there’s a slight reduction in their overall yield this year, the long term beneďŹ t for the land is really good.â€? Ms Watts said there were several advantages from the high ows of water in the rivers. “These high ows are important because the river systems haven’t seen these pulse events for quite some time,â€? she said. “There’s the physical effect, to scour out sediment which accumulates with slower ows, ushing through salts and algae,

Independent MPs will be lobbied to support funding for Border centre

Cancer hope in health deal By TREVOR JACKSON DEALS made by the Federal Government with the independent members to maintain power have sparked hopes of funding for a regional cancer centre on the Border. The $1.8 billion has been earmarked for regional health upgrades. Although still early days it gives hope to those pushing for a Border clinic. Director of Cancer Centres and chair of the working party for the cancer centre, Dr Craig Underhill, said it was good news for the area. “They haven’t announced the process yet but as soon as we hear

something we will be wanting to apply,” Dr Underhill said. “We can’t assume that we will be successful this time and we don’t want to miss out for the same reasons we missed out last time.” Dr Underhill said the last bid was unsuccessful due to minor shortfalls in the application. “The government told us we needed clear backing from the states and we needed to provide more evidence on why we needed that much money,” he said. “We provided that … we have the backing of NSW Health Minister Carmel Tibbett and Victorian Health Minister Daniel Andrews.

“The two main reasons we weren’t successful have both been addressed. “The government said there was no more money left and if any came up they’d let us know … now there’s more but we need to keep working hard to convince them we need it, and other health services … we shouldn’t just assume we’ll get it.” Dr Underhill said media claims that money would be taken away from city areas to fund the country health upgrades were unfounded. He said there was quite good data to show that money spent on health, roads or other resources

was disproportionately lower outside the capital cities. “In health it gets lower the further you go from capitals,” he said. Member of the Border regional cancer centre steering committee, Eric Turner, said any moneys available for the needs of the region should be considered when the expenditure is being done. “On a number of occasions the community has asked the question ‘what about us?’,” he said. “And they will continue to ask that question. “The future moves of our steering committee will be to write to Simon Creen, the Minister for Re-

gional Australia, and to the independent members, Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor, to ask them to represent this region when the next review of health funding is to be held. “The community as a whole, right across the nation, has a right to be treated equally, “We live in hope … a person who has a life threatening diagnoses must be given hope. “And while ever we, the community, keeps raising our hands and asking questions we’ve got hope. “It’s only when we stop that there’s no hope.”

Wymah ferry ready to cater for the summer tourist flood

From page 1 “There’s also school kids who travel across the ferry to go to school at Talgarno and shearers and tradies that head over on a daily basis as well.” Mick said more people were becoming aware that the ferry was operational. “It was shut for a while when the water got low,” he said. “People are starting to get to know that the ferry’s in full operation.

WODONGA residents have one more chance to get free immunisation against swine flu. Wodonga Council will hold its last vaccination day next Thursday, September 23, from 9am to 10am at the Wodonga Civic Centre. With health authorities warning that swine flu is now at significant levels in New Zealand and soon to hit Australia, this is the right time to be immunised. Swine flu poses a greater risk to pregnant women and younger Australians as well as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people and those with chronic medical conditions. Final stocks of the Panvax H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine in Australia will expire at the end

of September, this means that if you are wanting protection against the swine flu virus you need to have the Panvax vaccination before October. Time has run out for children aged under 10 years to receive a second dose of Panvax H1N1, as this needs to be administered four weeks after the first dose. A child aged under 10 years who has previously had one Panvax H1N1 dose, four or more weeks earlier can still complete their second dose in September. Next Thursday will be the last chance to be immunised. Further information can be obtained from Wodonga Council’s immunisation officer on 6022 9300.

“With the water coming up and the weather improving and summer coming in, we expect to be seeing quite a few more hopping on board.” He is also hoping that the Black Swan Retreat at Wymah, which he also bought about a year ago, will see travellers through its doors once again. The Wymah Ferry runs from 6am to 9pm September to April, and from 7am to 8pm May to August.

SPERM DONORS URGENTLY REQUIRED For many women the only hope of having a child is by donor insemination. However, there is a drastic shortage of sperm donors in Australia and we are facing the prospect of being unable to offer treatment to many women. If you are a healthy male aged 18-45 and think you may be able to help, please contact Paddy Mohan at Reproductive Medicine Albury for further information.

Border misses out on mental health

By BLAIR THOMSON A LACK of community services is hurting the Border, according to the Victorian shadow minister for mental health, drug abuse and community services, environment and climate change, Mary Wooldridge. The state Member for Doncaster, who visited her colleague, Member for Benambra Bill Tilley, said there was an urgent need for the State Government to provide better mental health and drug and alcohol services. “The concern is that services are generally provided on a regionalised basis, which can mean they’re not available to the local community,” she said. “Particularly for mental health, because it’s been excluded from the cross border agreement, people have to go to Wangaratta to access acute inpatient services even though there’s an acute inpatient service across the river. “In youth mental health, young people have to go to Melbourne before they can get an inpatient bed, which is a long way from the support of their community and their family. “It’s the same with

CONCERNS: Mary Wooldridge and Bill Tilley discussed a number of issues effecting Border residents during her visit to the area. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON drug and alcohol services; there’s good private facilities but no public facilities in terms of detox.” She addressed a range of issues during her visit. Ms Wooldridge and Mr Tilley visited the operators of Granya House, local mental health chief Peter Collicoate, the Wodonga and Albury Towards Climate Health group, residents affected by odours, and Tallangatta residents

concerned about the impact of wild dogs. She said the Coalition would announce policies on the issues closer to the state election in November. “Things will be announced over time and Bill will be announcing the local aspects ... but we don’t think it’s good enough that the issue of wild dogs hasn’t been addressed,” Ms Wooldridge said.

“There’s some good solutions there about how those populations can be managed and we also believe that locals need access to community services rather than having to travel. “Some of those issues aren’t going to be solved overnight but there’s a commitment to localise services that deliver to the needs of the local community.”

By TREVOR JACKSON SPOILT Rotten Pets is a pet shop with a difference. The Lavington store doesn’t sell live animals but has a boutique range of accessories and quality food that sets it apart from similar stores. Indeed the range of products is so diverse the business extends as far afield as Melbourne. Now one year old, the specialty shop is going ahead in leaps and bounds, and not by accident. “We’re a little bit different from your ordinary pet shop … a little bit boutique,” business owner, Lance Picton said. “We specialise in cat and dog accessories from collars, leads and harnesses to premium food. “Because we don’t have live animals for sale we can use our floor space better rather than try to cram in every thing from goldfish to lizards!”

Mr Picton said many of its products were fashion items with a huge range of colours and sizes on display as well as a large range of pet treats. “We have treats like dried kangaroo, beef and pork products,” he said. “A lot of these products help with dental hygiene and it’s a more natural way to go. “You don’t always see these items in normal pet stores. “We are getting new customers all the time, even from Melbourne. “They’ll come up and get a selection of treats and take them back to their friends, things like pig snouts and veal tendon scrolls.” Spoilt Rotten Pets is now celebrating its first birthday with a huge sale across the board, with many items reduced from 10-50 percent. The sale will run for two weeks and it’s certainly well worth a look.

City embraces bike week

Walkers raise disease awareness WALK FOR CAUSE: This group of walkers was among the participants in the second local walk held in support of raising awareness and funds for Parkinson’s Disease research. Organised by Albury’s Pam McMillan, walkers gathered at Hovell Tree Park in Albury on Sunday. The walk was held in support of the Parkinson’s Unity Walk held in capital cities. Picture: ROD HARDINGE riding: Local riders Tony McLeod-Nibbs and Rob Bishop use the track at Noreuil Park ahead of Bike Week this weekend. Picture: ROD HARDINGE By BLAIR THOMSON HUNDREDS of Border riders are expected to jump on their bikes this weekend for the start of NSW Bike Week. A range of activities are planned, from recreational rides to competitive races, starting with the Lavington Panthers Cycling Club Junior Criteriums at Noreuil Park at 9am. AlburyCity road safety officer, Kate de Hennin, said the week was about encouraging people to try cycling. The council released a new booklet highlighting the trails in Albury last week. “Bike Week’s about getting on your bike; we’ve got heaps of events in Noreuil Park for the opening and then at Hovell Tree Park for the close of bike week,” she said. “So we’re encouraging people to use the trails, use the brochure, and get on a bike and do it safely.” But there is also a serious message behind the events and booklet, with Albury riders several times more likely to be in-

jured than the rest of the state. “Unfortunately Albury has three times the amount of cyclists involved in crashes with cars than the rest of the state,” Ms de Hennin said. “What we’d like people to see is that Albury has a tremendous amount of off-road paths, so people can ride away from the traffic. “Where we can, we’re putting in more infrastructure, as often as we can, to try to get people off the roads. “We have a heap of cyclists here in Albury, so now we have the brochure and the infrastructure to match.” The council has plans to extend Albury’s bike trails south along the Riverina Highway to link up with paths in Thurgoona and Table Top Road. The new trails guide is available from the Albury Visitor Information Centre, the council offices, Albury Airport, and several stores around Albury. For more information on Bike Week visit alburycity.nsw. or call 6023 8111, and get on your bike.

Looking to the future THE Elmwood development in the City of Wodonga has rightly been described as both signiďŹ cant and exciting. It represents the dawn of a new era as modern metropolitan townhouse living makes its mark on Wodonga’s residential landscape. It also represents yet another show of conďŹ dence in the growth capabilities of the city. The development is sure to further enhance the attractiveness of Wodonga as a leading regional centre within Victoria. An information evening, hosted last Wednesday by the Elmwood Group and Wodonga Real Estate was particularly well attended. It was an opportunity to value add the knowledge of the invited guests with Elmwood being the vehicle. The development represents something new for Wodonga and has captured the imagination. It is metropolitan style living at its ďŹ nest, but available here in our very own backyard. Low maintenance, a sense of community and security, conveniently located to a medical centre and cafe ... this is the style of lifestyle that many people are looking for today.

Whether they have made a decision to downsize or are just won over by the concept, it appears that the future has arrived in Wodonga well and truly. Wodonga is certainly a city which is taking proactive steps to ensure it has the infrastructure and amenities needed to accommodate an ever-growing and diverse population. Elmwood is just one of several new developments which are planned to drive the city into the future. The fact that Elmwood features 7 star energy rated properties is also a big win for the environment. Chef Dan Yassin and his wife Kate Bullock also provide another example of the faith they have placed in Wodonga. Dan has worked in some of the ďŹ nest hotels in Vancouver and London, but has brought his undoubted skill and expertise to his new home through their newly refurbished Hideout Cafe/Takeaway. Similarly to the Elmwood development, it is yet another important show of conďŹ dence in Wodonga and the Border region. Both are important and signiďŹ cant in their own right.

Opinion What does it all mean, and do we really care? WHAT will become of us now? Australia finds itself with a minority national Labor Party Government, which has support of “the Greens” and three independents (two of them with provisos). How did this happen? Informal protests? It was not because of the number of people who voted informally. Even if every single informal vote turned out to be for one or the other candidate, the result would not change (look at the numbers … all the data is available on the AEC website). Did Australian voters make a huge demand for a new direction? Or, for no new direction? It was not because around Australia huge numbers of people wanted to change, or retain, the Government. The majority of voters in 133 divisions left things as they were. The decision was made in 17 of the 150 divisions. In four of those the preferences decided the result. Think about the 17 changes. In 12 cases the sitting member lost their job … 10 of that 12 were from Labor.

The Greens gained one seat previously held by Labor. An independent gained a seat from Labor. The Coalition gained 12 seats previously held by Labor. Labor gained three seats from the Coalition, one of those a sitting member. The Liberals lost control of a Western Australian seat (sitting member) … which went to WA Nationals! And did “conservative” independents betray their staunch supporters out there in the backwoods? Both Windsor and Oakshott had National candidates against them (as did Katter). As always, the Nationals did their best to get rid of the independents. The Nationals got their deposits back, but they were ineffective. No doubt at all, some of Windsor’s 71 per cent and Oakshott’s 63 per cent will be displeased. How many, and how much? Irrelevant! I have put this data on the internet as a spreadsheet through Alburyreport. A. HAMPTON Albury

Pollies’ corner

Rail service ‘joke’

NOT a day passes without a constituent raising their concerns about the ongoing disaster that is the return of passenger rail services to the North East. In 2008 we as a community were told work on Seymour to Albury rail corridor meant V/Line had to cancel passenger rail services between Melbourne and Wodonga while upgrades were completed. John Brumby promised faithfully at the time that new train services on the upgraded lines would be faster, more comfortable and more reliable than the old service and that a full timetable of service would be operational before the end of 2010 However, insiders in the rail industry have cast serious doubts over whether John Brumby will be able to honour his promise. Ongoing delays and safety concerns surrounding track upgrades are unacceptable and these concerns must be addressed in an open and transparent manner. This is why on July 26, 2010, the Victorian Coalition wrote to the Commonwealth Parliament’s Joint

Bill Tilley By

State Member for Benambra Committee of Public Accounts and Audit asking it to request the Commonwealth Auditor-General conduct a performance audit into the Australian Rail Track Corporation’s works between Albury and Seymour. This request comes on the back of several industry sources approaching me to blow the whistle on the shabby construction and their genuine concern the new services will take longer to get to Melbourne than the old passenger service. I am passionate about the return of passenger rail services to the North East. This service means a great deal to our local community and is vital for local business and tourism.

Internal V/Line documents show the new passenger services were meant to return on Sunday, September 12, 2010. Not surprisingly, this day has come and gone without sighting a single service. Some industry estimates have suggested passenger services will not be able to run before March 2011. This is unacceptable.

Border Cancer Centre I was really proud to participate in the recent rally calling on the Commonwealth Government to establish an Albury Wodonga Cancer Centre. As we heard on the day, there are an estimated 1400 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year in Albury Wodonga. Many of these patients will be forced to travel hundreds of kilometres for surgery, diagnosis and follow-up treatment. I commend the efforts of rally organisers and I will continue both inside and outside of State Parliament to pressure the Commonwealth Government to refocus its priorities.

By BLAIR THOMSON THE scandalous and violent history of 18th Century England captivated audiences at the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society Murray River lecture series last week. Renowned UK author, historian, academic and television presenter, Kate Williams, spoke of the turbulent life of Emma Hamilton. “I was enchanted by her when I was a PhD student because she was so fighting, she was fascinating, she came from nothing and was born into terrible poverty in 1765,” the Oxford University graduate told NewsWeekly. “It was a time when the average life expectancy was 17 and she was meant for nothing. “But then she ascended into incredible riches and fame when she married Sir William Hamilton, the Ambassador to Naples. “She became best friends with the Queen of Naples, she met Mary Antoinette

and her dance performances became the hit of Europe. “She was really the Angelina Jolie of her day; she was far too glamorous for words. “But after Lord Nelson died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, that was it, she lost everything and fell into millions and millions of pounds of debt. “Within 10 years she was in poverty.” Ms Williams said her lectures on Emma Hamilton and life during the 18th Century, and royal scandals, have been a hit with Australian audiences since arriving in the country earlier this month. “I think people in Australia are very interested in the 18th Century in the UK because it was the beginning of Australia at the same time, people were starting to come to Australia,” she explained. “That great poverty that happened in the 18th Century in the Victorian period encouraged people to come to Australia, I think that’s

why it’s particularly interesting to Australians.” The cross-cultural exchange between Australia and England has also meant local audiences have been to many of the sites and art galleries Ms Williams discusses. “The art galleries and museums that I talk about, at home, nobody’s been to them, but in Australia they’ve been and seen every possible thing I talk about,” she said. “The thing about Australians when they come to Britain, they want to make the most of their time, so they see everything, every art gallery and museum. “And I think that’s just wonderful.” The ADFAS Murray River lecture series runs once a month at the Nowick Theatre in Albury. The next session will be held on October 8, with Linda Collins to give a talk about Paris between 1850 to 1900.

100 years old, and expanding

CENTENARY: David Bent has issued an “open house” invitation between 2pm and 4pm tomorrow (Saturday) at the Thurgoona Rural Fire Brigade.

By PAT KOOPMAN THURGOONA Rural Fire Brigade will mark a significant milestone tomorrow (Saturday) when it celebrates its 100th birthday. In an historic day for the Thurgoona Brigade, festivities will include the official opening of extensions to the station, delivery of new tankers and presentation of medals. Southern Border team manager George Alexander said it will be a proud day for the 102 current brigade members. “The community of Thurgoona came together on January 14, 1910, to form a rural firefighting brigade,” he said. “A hundred years later it’s still going strong, providing fire protection for 400 square kilometres of local land.”


The official ceremonies will get under way at 11am. Instructor, Hume Zone, David Bent, has also issued an open invitation to members of the Thurgoona and wider community to inspect the station between 2pm and 4pm. “The Rural Fire Service at Thurgoona is totally voluntary and if we want to do things beyond normal we need the support of the community and businesses,” he said. The extensions have added one additional bay to the fourbay station, and included concreting for the training and parking areas. “For the last seven years by operating bingo at the Thurgoona Country Club and Resort, which is owned by the Liverpool Catholic Club, other fundraising

and community subscription to the brigade, we’ve been able to raise $120,000 towards the job and then Albury Council granted us some money and gave us an interest free loan for the rest,” Mr Bent said. “This is the end result of $180,000. “Probably the facility is worth somewhere around $400,000 to $500,000.” Mr Bent said the community is “very much part of this”. “Between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday we would like anyone locally to come in, have a look around and just find out what we do.” Members of the public are welcome to learn more about the role of the Thurgoona Brigade, which is an urban interface brigade.

are superheroes for a day THURGOONA Public School has received a $500 cash prize for the effort its students put into a superheroes day last week. The competition, run by local health group Border Pathology, was aimed at promoting healthy eating among students. As part of the competition Border Pathology delivered fresh fruit to 28 primary schools, with the youngsters encouraged to come to school dressed as their favourite superhero who derived their special power from eating fruit. Each school submitted photos of the event with the best picture winning a $500 prize. Hume Public, Holy Spirit, Thurgoona Public, Belvour Special, Albury Public, Lavington East and Border Christian College were singled out for their response. Following some tough deliberations the winning photo was narrowed down to four finalists from Belvoir Special School, Holy Spirit School, Hume Public School and Thurgoona Public School. It was decided that Thurgoona Public School was the winning school with a wonderful group effort! Hume, Holy Spirit and Belvoir were runners-up. The event coincided with national fruit and vegetable week and Dr Matthew Egan of Border Pathology said the response to the event had been wonderful. “To reward children for eating fruit, every child was also given a personalised mega superhero fridge magnet and balloon to remind them to be the best energy comes from fruit and as a superhero you need to eat well every day.”

FRUITY: Teacher Ken Mansell from Hume Public with students from left and working around the table: Piper Lockley-Hinschen, Amali Davis-Richards, Zac Joyce, Caitlyn Burton, Antonia Wenke, Mariah Burton, Zeke Wighton, Dylan Casboult, George Kendray and Zeek Carney.

Helping educate young people

By PAT KOOPMAN SMALL, medium and large businesses have the opportunity to learn more about Murray Industry and Community Education Employment Partnership Incorporated (MICEEP) and the partnership program at a luncheon on Friday, September 24, at the Commercial Club, Albury. Keynote speaker will be Ian Dixon, who is the founder and principal of Dixon Partnership Solutions. “Ian has trained the staff of not only MICEEP, but many of the partnership brokers right across Australia,” the organisation’s executive officer Kim Strachan told NewsWeekly. “He is an expert in the emerging field of partnership brokering and has worked on all sorts of government and community projects across Australia and internationally. “He will demonstrate to businesses, re-

gardless of their size, the benefits of being involved with their community and developing a partnership culture that is really a win-win situation for all.” Others who will speak include Commonwealth Bank regional banking business manager Albury Rod Bramich, and owner/functions and events manager of Adamshurst Restaurant, Chris O’Connor. Ms Strachan said the partnership program provided benefits for all involved. “It gives businesses, regardless of their size, the mechanism and opportunity to have a say in the education, further training and employment options for young people in the region,” she said. This, she said, was made possible by strengthening partnerships that they may already have with their local schools, the region as a whole and the state of NSW. Two primary objectives are central to the

role that MICEEP is playing in the community. The first is to increase the school retention rate in the region to completion of Year 12 or equivalent. “The national goal is 90 per cent by 2015, so that’s one of our underlying missions,” Ms Strachan said. “The other main focus of the program is to close the gap for Indigenous young people in the region with their retainment and engagement in school, and hopefully their completion of Year 12 and going on to further employment, education or training.” The cover charge of $25 per person for the business luncheon, which runs from noon to 2pm, will be donated to the Border Trust for distribution back into the community. Those interested can register now by booking through 6021 0505 (fax), phone 6023 4488 or email

BUSINESS INVITATION: Kim Strachan, school based trainee Renea Coote and MICEEP partnership broker Phil Thorneycroft promote the upcoming business luncheon.

By BLAIR THOMSON THE new Telstra Business Centre Albury Wodonga has opened in Dean Street. The store joins the Telstra store in Wodonga, which is the retail arm of the telecommunications giant, to provide services to businesses. “We have everything from fixed lines, mobiles, internet and data, planning and usage, to final equipment from a base phone to a full phone system,” business sales manager Glenn Leckie said. “The aim of Telstra Business Centres is to provide face-to-face contact between Telstra professionals able to provide a complete project management service for all local businesses’ telecommunications requirements. “It’s a complete solution that we’re aiming to provide the client.” The Business Centre concept was created by Telstra approximately 12 months ago, with the Albury Wodonga store the 56th to open. Mr Leckie said there had already been strong interest shown by local businesses. “The response to the level of service that we are to provide the local business community has been outstanding,” he said The centre takes staff numbers to around 25 across the two Border stores.

Too often being a dedicated officer is a thankless task Policing never stands still which makes police life really interesting – to say the least. Critics are quick to point out our failings but are most often slow to acknowledge the great efforts and results our organisation achieves day after day. Although the critics like to broadcast stories of officers making bad decisions, many more officers are doing whatever they can to be positive additions to the community they serve. There are many more great police officers than bad ones, and they rarely receive positive feedback. Most people who work in public safety understand that it is largely a thankless job. Today I want to acknowledge the work being done by the police officers in our area who strive to make this place safer, better. Our recent awards ceremony highlights spectacular individual achievements by some and dedicated years of service by others. Many more police officers are awarded acknowledgement for their ethical and diligent service. These officers all band together and unite as one when a crisis hits, and this bond creates the “police family”. If you really want to thank an officer for something they have done, put it in writing. Whether it was an act of bravery or a show of kindness, a letter to the Commander of the police station is greatly appreciated.

Apprentice help is ‘no bull’ prentice under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program. Brad Hodgkin is in the final year of his four year apprenticeship with the Albury based business. “At the moment it’s more heading towards the computer side of things, programming for the machine,” the 21-yearold said of the current phase of his apprenticeship. “(Initially) I was on the floor doing structural and through TAFE I did lighter fabrication and heavier … mainly on the heavy stuff now.” The business has recently undergone a major upgrade expansion in processing of the steel. “We put out 40 to 50 tonnes of fabricated steel a week,”

workshop foreman Tony Wenzke told NewsWeekly. “We have got a new plate machine which cuts up to 100mm plate.” A beam line also processes steel up to 100 tonnes per week, while a Coper machine also completes a similar amount. Old Bull and Box Engineering services fabricated steel needs that are sent all over the country. For further information regarding the Tools For Your Trade Payment Initiative, employers can contact field manager with employment services provider ATEL AusNAC, Melanie Howell. She can be contacted at her office at 2 Michael Drive, Wodonga, or phone her on 6024 0800.

Young leaders sought to join NSW Youth Parliament

By KEN DYASON A SECONDARY school student keen to be involved in the community is being sought to represent Albury in the 2011 NSW Youth Parliament. Nominations are being sought from 15-18 year old students now attending secondary school to represent the Albury electorate in the annual forum in Sydney next year. The Youth Parliament is sponsored by the YMCA. Member for Albury Greg Aplin has this year been given the job of selecting a representative from the Albury electorate. Mr Aplin said the role would involve a large commitment. “The successful applicants will be divided into various portfolio areas and will be given an

adviser to help them come up with an issue they would like to become involved in,” he said. “The program involves a three-day training camp in April next year, ongoing work on Youth Parliament activities and a week-long residential camp in the July school holidays. “Once bills have been written they will be debated by the youth parliamentarians in the NSW Parliament in July with sitting MPs taking the role of speaker for the debates.” Mr Aplin said that all issues put to the Youth Parliament would be documented and distributed to all NSW MPs. “The Youth Parliament is a great opportunity to develop skills in leadership, public speaking, debating and teamwork,” he said.

Henty Field Days

All roads lead to Henty ...and it’s not just for farmers! Cooking hints to

help you become a master chef

IT’S aimed at the farming community, but the Henty Machinery Field Days is definitely not just for the man or woman on the land. In fact Albury Wodonga residents who have no interest in farming will find plenty to keep them occupied at Henty. As a day out a trip to Henty next week is worth the short drive. For the ladies the country lifestyle program (which is, of course, under cover) offers cooking demonstrations and fashion parades. There are craft displays and plenty on health and personal development. If you are a dog owner you will have to be impressed by the dog trials. These crafty canines will give pet owners a whole new appreciation of what a dog can do as 60 kelpies and border collies go through their paces. If dad is a rev-head all the motor vehicle dealers will have their latest cars on show in the hope the recent rains encourage farmers to open their wallets. There are also exhibitors showing a range of goods from clothing (and not just for the farm) to solar heating and power and mobile telephones. And the inner man and woman is not forgotten. There are plenty of places to get a hot meal and a cold drink while you take a break from walking around the site. Henty is just a 45-minute drive from Albury Wodonga. Why not make a point of making the drive? You will not be disappointed. Entry costs $15 for adults, $5 for 12 to 16-year-olds. Entry is free for children under 12 accompanied by an adult.

THE main stage in the Country Lifestyle pavilion will light up each day with half hour cooking demonstrations to help you to become a “master chef”. Pavilion convenor Lyn Jacobsen says Channel 10’s Masterchef has prompted the return of cooking demonstrations in the Country Lifestyle Pavilion – particularly the challenge the contestants faced in making scones. Lyn recalls that brittle and rock-hard scones left a bad taste in judges’ mouths after contestants heavily kneaded the dough; it proved one of the most difficult tasks they faced. “People who watched Masterchef have said to me that they would love to know how to make scones with a lighter and more delicate texture and we thought that this would be a great opportunity to demonstrate the correct techniques involved,” she says. Organisers recently purchased a new portable oven for the lifestyle pavilion and cooking

demonstrations will be held each day, from Tuesday, September 21 to Thursday, September 23, on the main stage at the Country Lifestyle pavilion from 10am to 10.30am. Immediately following the cooking demonstration on Tuesday, well-known member of the Cake Decorators Association of Victoria Kate Aldridge will demonstrate new cake decorating techniques with chocolate. Experienced local Country Women’s Association judges and representatives will also be on hand throughout the three-day event to offer general cooking tips and answer questions. Lyn believes that recent cooking shows such as Masterchef have contributed to a renewed interest in cooking at home. “I’ve also heard that because of the down turn in the economy people are trying to cook from scratch themselves to save money rather than purchasing readymade items,” Lyn said.

Fashion plays a major role A “TRINNY and Susannah” style fashion demonstration will show how to choose clothes to suit your body shape at the Henty Country Lifestyle pavilion. Couture de Jour staff will take over the main stage to present the half hour “Look Good Feel Great” sessions at 11.30am on Tuesday, September 21, 1.30pm on Wednesday, September 22 and 10.30am on Thursday, September 23. Country Lifestyle pavilion convener Lyn Jacobsen says there will be about 70 exhibitors this year, half of them new to the pavilion, making it one of the biggest ever. She says demonstrations will include making felt flowers, floral art techniques, local craft displays and cooking sessions including cake decorating with chocolate. The Natural Freshwater Pearls exhibit will also be making jewellery on-site, creating unique, customised

items for customers, on the spot. A different keynote speaker will take to the main stage each day at 12.30pm. On Tuesday Jennie Hawkins will talk about what is carbon, the invisible commodity; Lyn Braico will speak on Wednesday about women across the world. On Thursday, financial advisor Dianna Jacobsen will discuss making personal choices for your future or your business. “Billabong High School students will look glamorous walking the catwalk at 11am and 2.30pm each day showcasing the latest in fashion and accessories from various Country Lifestyle pavilion clientele,” Ms Jacobsen said. TAFE students studying hair and beauty at Albury, Wagga Wagga and Griffith will outline the tricks of the trade while they style the models prior to the fashion parades.

Each day at 1pm models will wear garments entered in the 2010 Henty Natural Fibre Fashion Award. The winners of the competition will be announced during Thursday’s parade. “The lifestyle tent is not just about fashion, it has something for the whole family,” Ms Jacobsen said. “Many exhibitors will also provide information and advice about issues affecting our health and wellbeing.” The NSW Organ and Tissue Donation and Glaucoma Australia will both have exhibits to create awareness and Woodstock Support Group will show how they can provide support to families who have children with disabilities. Riverina Gums and Murray Gardens staff will discuss retirement living options, Terrance Ryan Hearing Aids will have an exhibit, and nutritionists will discuss healthy lifestyle issues.

Fast facts... • The field day site is open to the public from 8am to 5pm on Tuesday, September 21, Wednesday, September 22, and Thursday, September 23, 2010. • There is plenty of car parking in two major car parks. Disabled car parking is available at each entrance gate.

• A variety of food is available from outlets run by volunteer organisations. Foods range from sit-down bistro style meals to steak sandwiches and fish and chips. • There are numerous toilet facilities. • There is a parenting van for parents to feed or change children.

Henty Field Days

Little matches talent of the working dogs

IT might be said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but the working dogs competing at Henty have certainly learnt a thing or two about obeying commands. NSW Yard Dog Association publicity officer Jenny Cox says up to 60 kelpies and border collies, and their owners from across NSW, Victoria and South Australia, are expected to compete in the action-packed event, which has run for more than 13 years. Grandstand tiered style seating will be available for spectators and the best times to watch the trials during the field days will be from 8am on Wednesday, September 22, and finals series from 8am until mid-afternoon on Thursday, September 23. “The working dogs will be put through an intense yard trial moving sheep through a drenching race and through a draft,” Ms Cox said. The open section will include an additional task of loading sheep onto a truck. Two rings will be running simultaneously with three levels – novice, im-

prover and open events. Ms Cox says the dogs go through many hours of intense training from as young as eight weeks to succeed at a championship level. “The demographic of the dog owners has changed in the past five years,” she Cox said. “Farmers with dogs still compete however there is also a large contingent of competitors including juniors from the city who get a thrill out of entering these sorts of trials.” PEDIGREE sponsors the event to illustrate that working dogs need good nutrition. Ms Cox says the winner of the regional championships at Henty will gain automatic entry into the 2011 NSW Championship Title to be held at Ganmain, NSW. There are major cash prizes, trophies and ribbons also up for grabs. There are 80 working and yard dog trials held in NSW each year. Fourteen of these are regional championships (including Henty) open to members of any of the state Yard Dog Associations.

VISIT: Ms Bryce is special guest.

Bryce will open event

AMAZING: The working dogs put on a remarkable display of their talents during the trials.

THE Governor-General Ms Quentin Bryce AM, will open this year’s event on Tuesday, September 21. Field days chairman Mr Ross Edwards said the visit would turn this year’s official proceedings into a “vice-regal occasion.” “We are delighted the Governor-General has accepted our invitation, making this her second official visit to the Riverina,” Mr Edwards said. The Kapooka Military Band will perform at site during the official opening which will be held in the early afternoon. “We encourage the public to come along for the official opening and to demonstrate to the Governor-General the value of primary production and the families involved in agriculture in the Riverina,” Mr Edwards said. The Field Days are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

Dan’s hideout has royal seal

By PAT KOOPMAN CHEF Dan Yassin’s famous lemon tarts have been given the royal stamp of approval. And now residents of Wodonga and the Border region can also savour the same taste sensation. Dan and his wife, Kate Bullock, recently opened the newly refurbished Hideout Cafe/ Takeaway at 42 Waratah Way, Wodonga. Dan has taken the royal connection even further … he treats his patrons like royalty. “They’re not customers, to me they’re guests,” he told NewsWeekly. It’s why they can expect the five-star experience whenever they walk through his cafe’s front door. Setting up their new business has been a homecoming for Kate, whose family is from Wodonga. “The opportunity came up, so we thought why not,” Dan explained. “It’s something that I always wanted to do as well.” Dan’s culinary career began

as a 17-year-old when he first worked in Melbourne at an Italian restaurant for seven years. Since those early beginnings Dan and Kate have also lived overseas for 12 years. “When you go travelling, what happens is you start working in places and we did that,” Dan explained. “We went to Vancouver and had a good experience there working in the big chains, The Fairmont Hotel, which was good, and then landed in London for a good seven or eight years where I worked in a fabulous hotel.” It was there that he had his chance meeting with royalty. “That’s actually a story in itself,” he said. Dan acknowledged he is not “very knowledgeable” when it comes to the English Royal Family. “Working in a hotel … an open kitchen … you’ve got 100 people sitting there right in front of you, a 5 Star Hotel and a function booked for the Duke of Edinburgh,” he explained. “Fair enough, we had many famous people coming into that

restaurant every day.” Dan operates on a philosophy that everyone is of equal importance. “I served my lemon tarts out, he ordered a lemon tart and because I wasn’t sure who the Duke was, I just knew it was a prince, it was a duke … we had so many people coming from Dubai and so many Sheiks … so everyone was important.” The lemon tarts proved a big hit with the Duke. “He loved it and gave a big tip at the end.” It was only when he arrived home later that night and told Kate that he had served the Duke of Edinburgh, that he enquired as to who he was. Her reply: “Silly, he’s the Queen’s husband.” Dan’s tantalising menu, which includes the traditional favourite of fish and chips, covers the whole spectrum of cuisine and taste sensations. Since opening the door to the cafe, which is open Monday to Saturday (6.30am-7pm), Dan and Kate have employed nine local casual staff.

Mum shares experience of childhood disorder

By BLAIR THOMSON RAISING a child can be a hard task. Raising male triplets, all of whom suffer Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is almost unimaginable. Carolyn Angelin, who was on the Border to promote her new book detailing her experience with her three sons, told NewsWeekly that looking after her three boys was a nightmare. “From the age of two when they were expelled from playgroup up until about eight when they were diagnosed, I knew there was something wrong,” Ms Angelin said. “I blamed myself as a mother and thought it was all my fault and ended up having a breakdown, depression and hospitalisation.” The disorder nearly destroyed her marriage to her husband, Martin, and at times she felt like she was fighting a losing battle against the condition. “It was a nightmare going through years of not having support and not being understood in the community,” Ms Angelin said. “I could have put them on Ritalin at five or six but I’d read stuff in the media and didn’t want to go down that path … I tried everything under the sun for a number of years to avoid them going on medication.” Finding a school to accept the boys was also a tough task. “Usually it starts to pick up in the classroom … as soon as they sit down and try to start learning it becomes impossible,” she said. A doctor finally diagnosed the three boys,

then aged eight, with ADHD, and told Ms Angelin that leaving them un-medicated was similar to refusing to give a diabetic insulin. “It was definitely a relief when they were diagnosed, because I thought there is something wrong and there is treatment,” she said. “I saw the change that Ritalin made in the children. “We went from being a family that was torn apart to a family that’s normal, and the children are now excelling at school.” She believes her book, ADHD to the Power of Three, has the power to help other parents with children suffering the condition.

Will it be... Food GOSS WITH



HICKEN is available fresh, frozen, barbecued and smoked and the freshest chicken comes from a shop where the turnover is high. Poultry has now joined the “conscience category” of foods we eat. This is where we can make an ethical choice about the provenance of foods and particularly the humane treatment of animals we eat. More and more people are choosing free-range or organic chooks, because we know that a grass-pecking chook that can roam freely has a much happier life. It’s no surprise that these chooks also have a far superior flavour and texture.

Tips on storing chicken

Raw or cooked poultry can be stored safely in the fridge at 4ºC or lower for two days only. Throw the original wrapping out and pour away any juices from the bag. Place chicken on a plate and cover tightly with plastic wrap, so no juices escape onto other foods in the fridge. If you want to keep chicken longer, place in two freezer bags, label with a date and freeze for up to four months. If you need to store a freshly roasted chicken, leave it only until the steam disappears, then immediately place on a plate and cover loosely with foil. Put it in the fridge while it’s hot to prevent bugs growing. Modern refrigerators will cope with this extra heat .


➤ prepared couscous, for serving ➤ 2 tblspns pine nuts, toasted Sprinkle ras-el-hanout over chicken and rub well into the skin. Heat oil in a large heavy-base pot and brown chicken gently until golden. Remove from pan and set aside. Cook onions slowly in remaining oil until soft but not brown. Add garlic and cook for one minute. Add chicken stock, lemon juice and pepper. Cover and simmer gently for 50 minutes, or until cooked. Transfer chicken to a clean plate. Boil sauce for 3-4 minutes to reduce slightly. Meanwhile discard the pulp from preserved lemons, rinse the rind under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Cut rind into fine strips. Return chicken to the pan with the olives and preserved lemon and simmer for five minutes, until chicken is heated through. Serve chicken over couscous and sprinkle with toasted pine nuts. COOK’S TIPS Herbie’s Ras-el-hanout is available from The Green Zebra in Albury and The Beechworth Pantry. Or use a Moroccan spice mix. Jim Jam makes excellent Preserved Lemons. You’ll find them at Yalandra Fine Foods and Casa Deli in Albury; Dare’s Fruit and Vegies in Wodonga; International Deli in Lavington and at Goldfields Greengrocer, The Beechworth Pantry and Larder Fromagerie in Beechworth.

Moroccan Chicken and Olive Tagine This fragrant, sensuous dish is made using one aromatic spice mix comprising about 23 different spices. So it’s worth seeking out my favourite ras-el-hanout, also preserved lemons. (Serves 4) ➤ 1½ tblspns ras-el-hanout ➤ 1kg chicken pieces ➤ 2 tblspns olive oil ➤ 2 onions, sliced ➤ 2 cloves garlic, crushed ➤ 1 cup good chicken stock ➤ ¼ cup lemon juice ➤ freshly ground black pepper ➤ 2 quarters preserved lemon ➤ 250g green olives

Thai Chicken Cakes

So easy to make, these morsels have a wonderful fragrant flavour and light, moist texture. Use fresh chilli to your taste. (Serves 4) ➤ 500 g chicken thigh fillets, roughly diced ➤ ½ red onion, chopped ➤ 1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves ➤ 1 mild red chilli, chopped ➤ 1/3 cup coconut cream ➤ 2 tblspns grated palm sugar ➤ 1 tblspn Thai fish sauce ➤ 2 tspns chopped fresh ginger ➤ peanut or vegetable oil, for shallow frying Place ingredients (except oil), in a food processor bowl fitted with a metal blade and whizz until fine. Using slightly wet hands, form mixture into cakes approx 5cm diameter and 1cm thick, or larger or smaller if preferred. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry cakes over only moderate heat until golden brown and cooked. Drain on paper towels. Serve chicken cakes on finely sliced red onion if desired and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with sweet chilli sauce and a squeeze of lime.

¼ cup seasoned plain flour 1 tblspn olive oil 25g butter 100g button mushrooms, thickly sliced 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 2 tspns chopped lemon thyme, marjoram or parsley ➤ 1/3 cup cream ➤ 1 tblspn brandy (or dry sherry) ➤ salt and freshly ground black pepper ➤ 2 slices prosciutto ➤ 2 large slices Swiss-style cheese Place each chicken fillet in a separate plastic bag and pound gently to flatten slightly. Coat chicken with flour, shaking off excess. Heat oil in a frying pan and sauté chicken until almost cooked through. Place in a shallow, greased heat-proof serving dish. Heat the grill until very hot. Cook prosciutto in the same pan for 10 seconds on each side. Place prosciutto on each chicken fillet. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a medium pan, add mushrooms and garlic and shake pan over high heat until mushrooms release their moisture. Stir in the thyme, cream and brandy and bring to the boil. Simmer for one minute while stirring. Season sauce to taste and spoon over cooked chicken. Top with cheese and grill until cheese melts. Garnish with herbs if desired. Serve with vegetables in season or a leafy green salad. ➤ ➤ ➤ ➤ ➤ ➤

Paul’s Wine Pick

Paul’s Wine Pick Lovely dish! Full of smells and flavours so pick a wine with good fruit, spicy but not too heavy. For white drinkers – hard to go past Gewürztraminer. If you prefer a red, this dish would be a treat with Sangiovese or Tempranillo – ask your bottleshop manager for a recommendation from Spain or Italy, or try out our local versions from the Adelaide Hills (SA) or King Valley (Vic).

These look yum, but have lots of complex Asian flavours. I reckon they are perfect for lunch, with a lovely bottle of aged South Australian Riesling, or if you like a touch of fruit, try the German version. For the macho men, a good old Aussie Sparkling Shiraz is a perfect “fit”.

Swiss-style Chicken Plan a romantic dinner and serve this dish to your loved one. Then enjoy with Paul’s wine pick. (Serves 2) ➤ 2 x 200g chicken breast fillets

Paul’s Wine Pick Ahhhhh! Time for romance. Lash out with a great bottle of (wooded) Chardonnay. Spend until it hurts! Best bets are from Margaret River, Yarra Valley and the Mornington Peninsula. Stingy husbands can pick up cheaper versions from McLaren Vale (SA). Sorry boys, this is a delicate dish and so red wines are inappropriate. Continued page 24

Drinking white wine – learning and having fun Winelovers PERSPECTIVE WITH



AM often asked how my interest in wine started, and the best way to learn more about this wonderful stuff. The key point is that you must keep practising if you are going to be any good at it – hardly a chore! In reality, wine drinkers mostly never move past stage one unless they are prepared to think and concentrate – this does not mean furrowed brows, and frowns from the humour police. Drinking wine is fun, and is to be enjoyed as the quintessential social lubricant it is. But one night this week, just for a change, try out this exercise. It makes for interesting and stimulating conversation between live-in partners, and who knows, it may become a regular event!

Setting up Firstly, one of you goes to the bottle shop and buys a decent bottle of white wine – either partner can do it (but alternate the following week). And don’t be stingy – no cleanskins, please. Then, cover the bottle with foil to avoid “label judgement” (that is, judging a wine from the label as good or bad before taking a sip). Make sure you have some decent glassware – glasses with nice big “bowls” are good (don’t fill them up!) and have some reasonable light in the room (the romantic candlelit dinner will have to wait). It is also useful to have some form of white background – this can be as simple as a piece of paper or a white napkin. Draw the cork (or screw off the cap), pour the wine and then give it 10 minutes to breathe – remember not to chill it too much as this can “dumb down” the flavours and aromatics. In winter, 10-15 minutes in the fridge is usually enough. Now, you are ready for the exercise, with of course your partner being the “guinea pig” for the tasting.

RIESLING: An old Australian Rhine Riesling ... look for the citric “nose”.

Step one – sight

Look carefully at the colour of the wine. This is best done by putting the white background behind the glass and reflecting the ambient light up through the wine to your eyes. The easy way is to simply sit the glass on the paper and look down into the “bowl”. The wine should be bright and shining (not cloudy – that’s a fault) and its colour should be in degrees of yellow (from “light straw” through to a deeper gold – any shades of brown are bad news and usually mean oxidation has occurred). Lighter colours often mean little or no oak treatment, and also not too much bottle age (screw caps have made this exercise a bit harder, as they effectively “freeze” a wine’s colour development for years). The presence of colour – a darker yellow or “golden” hues are suggestive of two things – longer bottle age (particularly for Riesling) or (in younger wines) more exposure to oak. Finally, roll the wine around in the glass and look at how it “sloshes”. Wines that are lower in alcohol and sugar tend to move very freely whereas wines that tend to “slide” more slowly tend to have a bit more sugar or higher alcohol (that is, they have a higher “viscosity”). A good way to test viscosity is to roll the wine around the inside of the glass, and watch how it “slides” back down again – lighter wines tend to drop quickly whereas higher viscosity wines tend to dribble down in “legs” to create an effect known as “cathedral windows”. Using this approach, picking a wine that is a darker yellow, and tends to move slowly around the glass may well mean that you are about to try a sweet wine (like Sauternes) – mostly, however, you will find dry white wines tend to be lighter in colour and move freely around the glass.

Step two – the “nose” At this point, I suggest you put your hand on the top of the glass and swirl the contents around a few times. As the wine “smell” comes from the surface area of the wine, by swirling it you effectively double or triple the surface area of the wine giving off the wine “aromas” – then take away your hand, stick your “schnozz” into the glass

COLOUR: Use a whit background to check the colour of a wine like this old Marsanne.

and draw in a big “whiff”. Repeat if still uncertain. So what does the “nose” tell us? The following are commonly used descriptors of various white wine smells used to pick the wine variety:• Gooseberry, lychees, tropical fruit, cat’s pee, mown grass (for Sauvignon Blanc – particularly from NZ); • Cracked yeast, baked bread, “buttery”, apricots (Chardonnay); • Citric (especially “lime”), or for older versions – “kerosine” (Riesling); • Honeysuckle (Marsanne); • Nuttiness, honey (Semillon – particularly from the Hunter Valley); • Spicy, perfumed (Gewuztraminer); and • Floral, pear, melon (Pinot Gris). So, in a perfect world, at this point you should have worked out roughly the age of the wine, and its variety, and likely oak treatment (or lack of it). Now the best bit ...!

Step three – the taste In many ways, drinking a masked wine is no more than an affirmation of the decisions you should have already made. I find it rare to have a dramatic turnaround over my earlier thoughts, once I have taken a “slurp”. This is simply because your olefactory receptors (in the schnozz), have connections to the brain and the palate so that in some ways you have already made up your mind once you have taken a sniff and thought about it, before actually drinking it That said, tasting a wine can be quite revealing. The “pucker” sensation on your cheeks can be suggestive of the amount of oak treatment that a wine has been given – over oaking can create a “chooks bum” effect where your mouth literally “puckers up” with the dryness of the oak tannins. And by putting a small quantity of wine into your mouth, and dipping the tip of your tongue into it, you will get a sensation of the amount of acid in the wine. Remember that acid is a life preserver of a bottle’s contents, but tends to diminish with time. A wine that you have worked out looks old and smells old, may also taste “old” where there is only a slight tingling of acid. Compare that with a fresh young Riesling just released, which will give your tongue a

tingling sensation equivalent to sticking it on car battery terminals! To properly taste the wine, take a decent “slurp” and roll it around the inside of your mouth – covering your palate and cheeks and allowing the odours to creep up the back of your nose to the olefactory receptors. Gentility and care is needed at this point to avoid self-asphyxiation and a projection of wine across the dining room table as you struggle for air. I find the palate one of the best indicators of the quality of a wine and how it is likely to develop. A wine which is both rich and complex, but with a lovely acid “backbone”, fills me with encouragement for it’s future. Conversely, an overly acidic wine that tends to fall “short” and seems “thin” is not likely to have the same happy ending in your cellar. A wine can feel “rich” or “fat” in various degrees in your mouth. If you are being hit with a string of different flavours all at once, that is often the measure of the wine’s “complexity” – regrettably mostly found only in more expensive wines – but not always, so keep looking. Once the wine has gone down the gullet and is on its way to the kidneys, think about the flavours that are left in your mouth. Are they still strong and pronounced, and reminiscent of the wine you have just drunk? – That persistence of flavour is known as “length” and so a wine that is both rich and complex in the mouth, and has flavours that remain long after the contents have been swallowed, is said to have considerable “depth and length”.

So what’s next? At this point of the evening, the person who is “in the know” will be feeling somewhat superior and will be tempted to poke fun at his or her partner who has been struggling throughout the meal to identify the wine. A word of caution – next week it’s your turn, so don’t get too smug! Now I hope all that was not too hard – sure, it may take a few nights to get it right but I guarantee that you will have fun and also learn heaps. Who knows, it may even put the spark back into your relationship!

HEAVEN: A 30-year-old French Sauterne will delight the senses.

Next week: Riesling: It’s worth another try.

AGAIN: The same wine, just a different vintage, and still a fabulous drop.

New life for a popular chicken shop From page 21 Recently there was a re-incarnation of a chicken shop in Albury, that has culminated in a serendipitous partnership. Noel and Kate Patterson had been long overdue for retirement when the lease for their popular fresh chicken shop Saucy Chicken in a major shopping centre expired after 21 years. Just as fast as one door closed, another opened. In May this year, they were invited to operate from the premises of Yalandra Fine Foods at 206 Borella Road in Albury. It’s already a very successful partnership, as consumers can now purchase a myriad of wagyu beef cuts on one side of this sparkling new store and a marvellous variety of free-range poultry products on the other, presenting consumers with an extensive range of meal solutions. Over the past 49 years, Noel and Kate have certainly done the “hard yards” in food experience. When Noel was a teacher in Mackay in Queensland, his parents ran a staff kitchen in a sugar mill. Eventually he and wife Kate took over the demanding business, feeding 120 hungry workers three meals a day, seven days a week! They subsequently ran motels for seven years in Queensland and New South Wales and even managed golf club dining rooms in between. In 1989 they arrived in Albury and opened their fresh chicken shop. Now two daughters and four grandchildren later, this amazing couple have commenced a new career in their stylish new surroundings and have a new modern Saucy Chicken logo as well. Each day from Tuesday, they take delivery of free-range, air-chilled, hormone and chemical free chickens from Hazeldene’s farm in Bendigo. While Noel dissects chickens into breasts, thighs and drumsticks with the pre-

cision of a surgeon, Kate creates a variety of value-added chicken products including delicious crumbed products made using fresh breadcrumbs – such a rarity today. Easy-carve boneless chickens are tied (not netted) to a trim shape. These are superb for dinner parties with their generous border of chicken breast fillets surrounding a high quality filling. Kate suggests roasting these chickens on a rack in a baking dish for 1¼ hours at 180ºC. She also suggests plac-

ing one cup each of white wine and water with a chicken stock cube in the dish before roasting, to not only keep the flesh moist but to form a sauce. When the bird is cooked, leave it to rest so it’s easier to carve as you don’t lose flavoursome juices. Then heat the stock to boiling then add about ¼ cup cream for a quick and delicious sauce. Saucy Chicken also stocks popular Luv-aDuck whole ducks, Peking Duck plus packs of pancakes, duck marylands, breasts, sausages,

ravioli, duck confit and duck fat, the secret of many chefs in turning out perfect roast potatoes. Poussin and quail are in demand and their free range local Chookaburra eggs sell out very quickly. INCIDENTALLY, it’s a good idea to pop a note in your diary now to order Christmas poultry during the last week in November, to be sure of your requests and to avoid disappointment.

Calling all fans: We’re back and set to put on a top show


BACK: Calling All Cars are looking forward to returning to the Roi Bar on Thursday, September 30. By BLAIR THOMSON EXCITING three-piece indie rock act Calling All Cars returns to Roi Bar on Thursday, September 30, after an impressive set supporting The Butterfly Effect there in June. Despite the fact they were opening for the prog-rock act, their highenergy set had more than enough power and excitement to lift the Roi crowd. Singer and guitarist Haydn Ing told NewsWeekly the band hopes to again pump up the crowd when it returns. “Because we’ve been doing it for long enough, you can do a 10-hour drive and get up on stage. “It’s still fun getting out there and doing what we love doing and making people happy,” he said. “Being up on stage is what it’s all about.” The past year has been particularly hectic for the band. It toured with Green Day in New Zealand in December, followed by a support slot on AC/DC’s massive Black Ice tour and a stint opening for Grinspoon. Singles Disconnect, Not Like Anybody, Run Away and Hold, Hold Fire from the debut album of the same name were picked up by Triple J and placed on high rotation. The national youth broadcaster has helped spread the band’s music into regional areas like Albury Wodonga. “They’ve been awesome, you can definitely see the difference in the regional areas thanks to those guys,” Ing explained. “You can show up out in the middle of nowhere and people will sing along word for word so it’s obviously been great.” Touring with AC/DC also didn’t hurt their popularity. “It was amazing, we were origi-

nally supposed to be doing our own tour and then found out we picked that support slot up, the whole thing was just huge and on a different level,” Ing said. “It was awesome being able to walk around backstage and see how it all works. “There’s literally a guy for every little thing during the show. “It was such a massive production that you had to go through heaps of different guys to talk to them, but we did get to bump into them and have a chat a bit and they seemed like really nice guys.” Ing said the band members won’t be resting on their laurels despite their newly-found success. “I think it comes down to persistence and sticking at it with a lot of hard work,” he said. “We’ve been demoing and recording stuff for the next album, so

as soon as we finish this tour we’re going to get back into the studio and get album number two out and start touring this one. “It’s definitely a bit different ... I think we’ve definitely matured with how we’ve been playing, but it’s not too far removed from what we’ve been doing I guess. “We’ve got about 50-something songs … I’m not sure how it’s going to go yet. “We’re just going to try to get it all out there and carve it all out I suppose.” Fans can expect the new release early sometime in the new year. “We’re trying to release it as soon as possible to stay on the radar, so we’re looking at early next year,” Ing said. Judging by the band’s talents, they’ll remain firmly on the radar for a fair while yet.

CD Review Artist: Linkin Park Album: A Thousand Suns

LINKIN Park has ditched the numetal sound and taken a drastically different approach on new album, A Thousand Suns, and attempted to highlight their creative talents. Instead of hard hitting guitars and drums, the tracks have heavily layered synthesisers used to create a space-aged concept album with minimal gaps between songs. A Thousand Suns starts off well through introduction tracks The Requiem and The Radiance, but never reaches the lofty heights they aimed for. The problem lies in the vocals. The lyrics are good in parts, but

aren’t helped by terrible melodies. With a slight tweaking of the album’s direction, they could have been onto a winner. They’ve instead created a real stinker.

Aiming for life making films By BLAIR THOMSON THE Border and Regional Film Festival will showcase the best local film talent when it kicks off at the Albury LibraryMuseum on October 1. Featuring 14 short movies from entrants as young as 14, BARFF is a seen as a great way for people to have their work shown and can provide an entry point into a filmmaking career. Alex Kausche is one budding film-maker that hopes to eventually make movies full time. The Albury High Year 8 student entered his three minute film, The Wooden Thief, into this year’s festival, with his younger brother Ray featuring in the quirky stop-go animation. “I was in a movie making course and made that for it, and I really liked it,” Alex said. “It’s probably the best movie I’ve made so I entered it into the competition. “It’s about a little wooden figure that’s a robber, he goes into people’s houses and takes objects. “It’s really good having the BARFF … it’s good timing as well, because I just finished the course and it’s come up right away.” Alex started making films about two years ago after his father showed him how to do it, and often starts shooting whenever an idea pops into his head. “I usually just start and see what happens, I don’t really think about it,” he said.

By TREVOR JACKSON LOCATION, location, location, has always been referred to as the three golden rules of real estate. These two luxury townhouses certainly have that as they are situated just across the road from the Albury Golf Club and club house at the top end of Peel Street, Albury. This brilliant location not only offers commanding views over the city and the Albury golf course, but also extends to the snow capped mountains of the southern Alps. With its close proximity to the central shopping area this is certainly a great place to live. Unit one, which is built on two levels, offers four bedrooms, the main with ensuite and walk-in robe. The large open living areas on both levels offer commanding views which are captivating by day and magnificent by night. Fully ducted heating and air conditioning also add to the comfort and there is a large double garage with additional storage area that has remote and internal entry.

Junior soccer teams prepare for season A recent rail incident at Flemington confirmed the MawSafe rail worked as designed by minimising injuries to a fallen rider and keeping another horse and rider from breaking through the rail system in an uncontrolled manner. Victorian jockeys are said to be very happy with the system. Wodonga club Manager, Bradley Thomas, said the rail keeps the course at the forefront of the industry as a training venue and ensured the course was safe for racing.



JUNIOR indoor soccer begins tonight, (Friday) at the Major League Indoor Sports and Function Centre. The season kicks off with a registration night before the season begins in earnest next week. Age groups begin from 5-6 years and go through to 17-18 years. Registrations will be conducted for ages five through to eight from 4pm with ages nine through to 12 from 6pm and 13 through to 18 at 7.30. Registration fees for the competition include insurance, coaching, referees, training days, sausage sizzles and trophies.

The competition has proven to be quite popular over the past 15 years to now include over 100 junior and 30 senior teams. For further information contact Matt Mitchell on 6021 6855 or drop into the centre at North Street, Albury. ALBURY Little Athletics are preparing for their upcoming season with registration days tomorrow, (Saturday) September 18 and the following Saturday, September 25, between 10am and noon at Alexandra Park. Those interested in junior athletics can go and register on those days or any other day of competition. Club secretary Cynthia Powell said some people thought if they missed the registration days they then couldn’t come and compete at the centre. “People can come along at any time to register,” she said. “We also have come and try days … it’s more for kids that haven’t done athletics so they get some idea what it’s about and if it’s what interests them. “We offer a couple of those days for people wanting to try the sport.” Mrs Powell said the come and try days weren’t specifically set out but could be utilised on a day that suited the participant. The club’s season begins on October 2 running through to the end of March, 2011

and offers many opportunities for children in the region, not just helping them maintain a reasonable level of fitness. “It’s a place where they can develop their athletic skills while widening their social skills and friendship base,” Mrs Powell said. “They can meet a lot of kids from different schools. “We also try to encourage them to achieve their personal best while competing in a group – we have personal best cards to keep a record of their achievements.” Any further enquiries regarding the club can be made by contacting Cynthia Powell on 0422 448 839 or by attending the registration days. WODONGA and District Turf Club has received a safety boost with the supply of 2400m of plastic rail, anchors and uprights valued at $101,000. The MawSafe rail project, costing approximately $2.5 million over 29 venues has been funded by the Victorian Government and Racing Victoria. The benefits of the MawSafe system includes no metal parts being above ground, all metal anchors stay in the ground in the event of a rail incident with plastic uprights kicking out on impact. This minimises injury of horse and rider, unlike fixed metal uprights than can cause significant injuries in the event of a rail incident. The rail is flexible with a cabling and elastic effect that keeps the horse and rider on the track, moving on impact and increasing in height to ensure a safer result for horse and rider.

ALBURY Wodonga Mountains Bikers will hold their first dirt crits of the season next Sunday, September 26, behind the Albury Swim centre car park, Hovell Tree Park as part of the NSW bike week festivities. The course will be flat but but will also provide fast, close and tight racing. Groups of about 10 people will be sent off in each race to avoid congestion on the track and will be divided into classes of around the same ability. The track consists of a small loop with the events run over a 25 minute period. Riders are expected to cover around 25 laps in that time with the possibility of a sprint to the finish. Event organiser, Brad Spinelli, said the track would be relatively simple with no real technical skill required to compete. “Basically the track weaves around on the grass,” he said. “Anyone with any skill level can come and ride … all they need is a mountain bike in working condition and a helmet. “We had a similar dirt crit event in Noreuil Park as part of the MAC10 events and everyone loved it. “It’s a really good spectator sport as well because you can see the whole track. “Anyone interested in mountain biking can come down and compete even if it’s their first time.” The club will also be running a junior event for under 10s and Mr Spinelli said competitors could use any type of bike. As part of the bike week celebrations Albury council will have the wood-fired oven available for use with bike decorating for children also on offer. Registrations can be made on the day from 9-10am with racing to begin at 10am. The fee will be $5 with a further $15 to purchase a day licence if required, which will cover insurance.

Pollock overcomes flat tyre to grab 3rd place in big race

By TREVOR JACKSON BORDER cyclist, Rhys Pollock has taken third place in the Goulburn to Citi cycling event. He took the win against more than 200 riders. Pollock competed with two other members of the Drapac Porsche team as a preparation for the Tour of Tasmania this week. The event was also a part of the Australian National series, attracting many of the top riders in the country. It consisted of a 4km time trial around Goulburn before tackling a 170km road section from Goulburn to Camden the following day. Pollock said the team approached the event without huge expectations and was very pleased with the final result. “We went into the race pretty open, just to see how we were all feeling,” he said. “On Sunday I ended up getting fourth in the time trial … I wasn’t sure whether that time would be much of a factor with

the 170km road section ahead. “In the end the road race came down to a sprint with a group of about 40 guys and I finished eighth in that giving me the third overall.” He said the race was similar to a tour event but run over the two-day period giving riders their aggregate score for placings. The road course began on the highway and continued for around 80km before heading down through towns like Moss Vale and Picton, with two climbs up a hill known as Razorback after 150km of riding. “It’s a fairly steep little hill,” Pollock said. “We went up that two times and then had another 15km to the finish. “The second time up the hill decided the race … that basically split everyone and left the final group to sprint it out to the finish.” Pollock suffered a flat tyre and spent a lot of time trying to catch up to the main group.

By that stage a group of around 10 riders had created a 30 second gap on the main group which made the job even tougher. “I was feeling it a bit by then,” Pollock said. “Once I got back to the bunch, on the next few hills I was suffering a little bit so I wasn’t sure how I would go coming to the finish. “It’s hard when they throw climbs in right near the end … it’s a good test to see who’s got the best legs. “I struggled a bit the second time up the hill but I got back on so that wasn’t too bad. “In the end it was fairly obvious it was going to be a bunch sprint because there was a couple of teams that were pretty keen to keep it together to be a bunch sprint. “I sort of just waited and had a bit of a go at the end. “Eighth in the sprint isn’t too bad for me because I’m not the best sprinter.” The Drapac Porsche team,

this time with six members, have now headed to the Tour of Tasmania which began yesterday (Thursday) and continues until Tuesday with Pollock hoping for a good result on the back of the Goulburn to Citi event. “As a team we should go pretty good,” he said. “We’ve got a couple of good guys … we’ve got Peter McDonald who was riding well at the Goulburn to Citi race … he’s the stronger climber out of the team. “In Tasmania it’s pretty hilly so we’ll definitely be looking out for him a little bit. “Stuart Shaw, one of our riders from Canberra, has been going really well in some of the sprints recently so we’ll definitely be trying to get him to the finish. “If I can slip away in a couple of breakaways I might give myself a bit of a chance. “If I can do well and win a stage down there it would be great. “That is one of the goals.”

By TREVOR JACKSON HERMAN van Ree has taken top honours in both the Bunnings Trailable Yacht Regatta and the Noelex 25 Country Championships held on Lake Hume over the weekend. Twenty eight sailors aboard nine yachts contested the annual series in variable wind conditions. Sunday saw an early end to race two with the wind dropping right out, forcing the organisers to abandon it. As the wind returned the final race of the series was able to go ahead. This saw van Ree skipper Executive Suite to a comfortable win. But the champion didn’t have it all his own way with Jeff Stirling’s Live Wire pushing him right to the finish line. The well-oiled team aboard Executive Suite managed to set their spinnaker quickly and effectively while Live Wire’s crew struggled coming around the top marker. This allowed van Ree to open up a gap in the stiffening breeze and take the title. Phil Clements skippered Rum Runner to second in both championship events and was leading van Ree in the abandoned race. He was followed in third by Jeff Stirling in the trailable yacht regatta with Terry Caldwell coming home in third in the Noelex 25 event. The Albury Wodonga Yacht Club is looking to the new season with added enthusiasm given the rising water levels in Lake Hume. With the lake well over 70 per cent full the club now has its bay back, making life much easier for launching yachts. The season-proper kicks off this weekend with the Commodore’s Trophy, club championships and handicap series beginning on Sunday at 9am. “Anyone looking to try sailing for the first time is also most welcome to visit the club this weekend and speak to club members and inspect the excellent facilities here,” club commodore, Phil Clements said.

Fitness, sticking to game plan, keys to Bulldogs’ win

WINNERS: Thurgoona netballers with their grand final flag and shield.

From back page “It’s all about hanging on to the ball, hanging on to your centre passes, hanging onto it when there’s a turnover, it’s about shooting goals.” The Bulldogs’ defensive effort lifted in the last term creating turnovers and providing plenty of opportunities to score, a part of Mrs Gerecke’s plan throughout the game, with the emphasis on closing down one of the Saints danger players, Breannan Boyd. “We did play a defensive game all the way through,” she said. “We double teamed what I believe is the strongest person on that team, their GA, and we really did some hard work trying to shut her down. “She was still very good, still had a very good game, but when we played them in one of the semis she was just awesome, so I knew that if we could at least contain her we’d have a good shot.” Mrs Gerecke said going into the

season her emphasis was on fitness, knowing it would carry the team through the competition. “We are a fit side,” she said. “That was one of my things going into pre-season … we all have to be fit, including me … I don’t ask them to do anything I won’t do. “We do a lot of work with fitness and strength … that’s where I think it all comes from … there’s no use just running a few laps and hope that you’re fit, hope that you’re strong … it’s a long time out there for a whole hour. “They’ve done a great job, they’ve listened to everything I’ve said.” Mrs Gerecke said Wodonga brought the game up to them and she knew it would be a tough hit out but said her team showed courage when they needed to. “I knew we could do it,” she said. “We had the skill … it’s all about who performs on the day … we really performed … I’m so happy.”

Tigers look to have edge in O&M decider By TREVOR JACKSON NORTH Albury were never really in the race to make the O&M grand final when they faced Yarrawonga on Sunday at John Flower Oval. After a top performance last week by Damian Cupido many Hopper fans were looking to him to be the saviour of the club’s hopes. But he could only manage three goals, a stark contrast to the previous week’s bag of 10 as the Pigeons powered away to get another crack at the Tigers. All eyes will be on the Lavington oval this week as Albury and Yarrawonga meet to fight it out for the flag. It would be a brave man to tip against the Tigers and they look poised to take back-toback premierships. My money is on the Tigers by a margin of four goals. NewsWeekly tipping guru, Mark French has also put his money on the Tigers in what he said should be a much tighter contest than last year’s final. “While I’m tipping Albury I think it should be a good game,” he said. “I think the week off will do Albury good … when the two teams last played it was pretty wet so that would have taken a bit out of them. “But I think Albury should get up in a close one.” Mark has certainly proved he has an eye for a winner this season and I think he’s right on the money again. 2AY’s Simon Corr wasn’t surprised with the weekend’s result. As for his choice of premiership favourite, he too can’t go past the Tigers. “I think Albury’s mid-field is too dominant,” he said.


Roos just no match for dominant Bushies By TREVOR JACKSON BEECHWORTH Bushrangers have taken a dominant win over the Yackandandah Roos to win the Tallangatta league premiership for 2010, 18.9 (117) to 12.5 (77). A slightly slippery surface at Sandy Creek didn’t detract from a great spectacle and outright favourites, Beechworth, used all their speed to account for Yackandandah, never really looking troubled throughout the match. Yackandandah had opportunities early in their forward line but were unable to convert, the pressure applied by Beechworth seemingly too much for the Roos to handle. A five-goal bag from Yackandandah’s Scott Fraser wasn’t enough to help the underdogs with Beechworth’s Matt Hunt matching his effort up forward. Despite the damp conditions underfoot Beechworth used the first term to set the win up with six straight goals. Yackandandah were also accurate in front of the big sticks but with just two goals the writing was on the wall. With an extra couple of scoring shots in the second term the Bushies were unable to make much more of a break, a couple of behinds hindering their forward march and the Roos were now holding on for dear life. They say the third term is the premiership quarter and Beechworth used it to their advantage adding a further four goals to hold a 39point lead at the final break. A renewed effort from the Roos in the final term matched the Bushys score but they couldn’t chip into the lead Beechworth had built up. The final 40 point margin providing a deserved win for the Bushrangers. Beechworth’s big ruckman Tim Scheuermann was awarded for his work around the ground with player of the match. His efforts also received the nod from the 2AY team who broadcast the game live from the ground. “The ground seemed to have recovered well,” said 2AY’s Simon Corr. “I was there the day before and it was still under water … there’s not too many grounds that could recover that well, although I thought it might have been a bit heavy and noticed a few guys cramping up.” Corr considered that Kayde Surrey and Brayden Carey were good contributers for Beechworth with veteran, John Allen, kicking four

For Yackandandah he felt Brent Lewington played a fantastic game as did Ben Margery. “It was a fantastic day,” he added. “The reserves was a fantastic game as well … Yack went down by a point to Wahgunyah.

“The crowd was big so it was a good day for the Tallangatta league.” He said the streaker at the end of the game, who managed to slip over the fence and disappear into the crowd, added another dimension to the day as well.

Wombats all-out attack rewarded with berth in final

DEFENDER: SS&A goalie, Ben Hawkins attempts to repel another Wombats attack.

By TREVOR JACKSON NASC Wombats have advanced to the grand final of the AlburyWodonga division 1 hockey competition with a 3-1 defeat of SS&A Magpies on the weekend. Considered the underdogs, Wombats came out firing, peppering the SS&A goals early in the game. SS&A goalie, Ben Hawkins, held strong and repelled many attempts before Wombats’ Tom Swaby found the net on the back of a Peter Barber pass. Swaby added further to the Magpies’ woes when he set up Josh MacVean who slotted an-

other goal, giving the team a strong 2-0 lead at the break. Wombats continued their momentum in the second half with Jacob MacVean finding the back of the net early in the term. It wasn’t until the 20 minute mark of the second half that SS&A managed to score with some fast team work giving Steve Miller a successful shot. Wombats will now face a strong Falcons line up this week in the grand final. For the women SS&A Magpies defeated Wodonga 3-1 to progress through to the grand final.

The game was played at a frenetic pace from the outset with both teams’ defence holding strong. Wodonga was able to break free of the constant pressure when a long cross ball from Shae George found Sinead Coleiro free on the right wing. After a short run to the attacking zone Coleiro’s centering pass was picked up by Kyrie Cockayne who was able to draw SS&A keeper Danielle Martin wide enough to push the ball past her into the goal to take a 1-0 lead. SS&A kept up the attacking moves and it resulted in draw-

ing a deliberate foul from the Wodonga defence. SS&A took full advantage of the ensuing penalty stroke with Amy Allen taking the score to 1-all at the break. With some tactical changes in the second half SS&A took the lead after a Georgia McCormick goal resulting from a penalty corner. The team went further ahead when Linda Snell finished off a two-on-one around Wodonga goalie Sarah Lucas. The 3-1 victory set up SS&A for what should be a thrilling encounter with Norths in the grand final.

CELEBRATIONS: Thurgoona Bulldogs 18 and under netballers celebrate their hard fought grand final victory. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON

By TREVOR JACKSON THURGOONA 18 and under netball team has defeated Wodonga to take the Tallangatta league grand ďŹ nal in a heart-stopping match on Saturday at Sandy Creek 44-39. Up against he best in the league the Bulldogs were without doubt underdogs, having faced the Saints twice this season for two defeats. Anything can happen in a grand ďŹ nal and the approach of coach, Zanelle Gerecke proved the theory to be correct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a plan, and it worked,â&#x20AC;? she told NewsWeekly after the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also had a backup plan â&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about preparation â&#x20AC;Ś if I can prepare for everything that I think is going to happen I should be right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have heart palpitations all the way through.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really disappointed about is Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 12 girls and two didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That honestly breaks my heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played all season and done a great job and there was no reason for them not to go on â&#x20AC;Ś I had to make some hard decisions and I hate it.â&#x20AC;? Wodonga seemed to have the edge in the ďŹ rst half before Thurgoona made a small break in the third quarter, however Mrs Gerecke said she never felt comfortable during the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never feel comfortable until the last whistle,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen games lost when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 10 points up at three quarter time so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never comfortable, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to keep going.
