Border duo shine at Asian water ski titles By TREVOR JACKSON BORDER water skiers Cathryn Humphrey and Josh Briant have helped Australia dominate the Asian Australasian championships in Jakarta. The pair were part of the winning Australian team with Cathryn confirming her standing in the sport with four gold medals. Both competed in the open section of the tournament division (slalom, tricks and jumps) of the competition. Cathryn managed to win the slalom and trick divisions and performed well in the jumps. Fifteen year old Josh finished second behind Australasian champion, Ryan Green in the tricks division and featured well in the overall event. Cathryn’s preparation for the event was hampered by cooler weather leading up to the titles. But it did not detract from her performance. “I wasn’t prepared as I would have liked to have been,” Cathryn told NewsWeekly. “Because it’s been a bit cold I’ve been training in the gym … half gym and half on the water.” Although she wasn’t quite prepared she said the conditions in Jakarta were tough and probably helped her in that sense. “I’m a strong skier in the tough conditions,” she said. Although the two Border competitors were part of the Australian team they skied individually and combined their scores for the team total, which saw Cathryn take her four gold medals from five available sections in slalom, tricks, overall women’s and team. She said she was happy with the results and will now be working hard in the gym and on the water to improve her jump performance, the weakest part of her skiing. Organisers of the Australian team decided to allow the two Border skiers to keep their winning shield in Albury until the next event, which will be in two years time. Albury club president, Gary Humphrey, said the decision was made on the back of their performances and the work the club has put in to the sport. “They are both rated very highly, nationally and internationally,” he said.

DAY OUT: April Hardy and her father, Phil, were two of the 12,000 people who enjoyed the 21st Wodonga Children’s Fair last Sunday. Perfect weather greeted the revellers who enjoyed a performance by cartoon hero BEN 10, live music, animal displays and loads of fun. Report, more ROD HARDINGE pictures – page 9.

Group aims to help push crime fight

Watch out

By PAT KOOPMAN NORTHSIDE Neighbourhood Watch is aiming to lift the profile of the community-based network in the hope of boosting membership and resurrecting other groups in Albury. Neighbourhood Watch acts as the “eyes and ears” of the police force in the battle to combat crime.

“It’s been around since 1984 and the North Albury area is the only area which is fully functional,” Northside Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator Dot Franks told NewsWeekly. “By being involved with Neighbourhood Watch it is empowering our community to be responsible and to learn what the police are doing.” To help raise its profile and

boost membership, Northside Neighbourhood Watch will hold a special afternoon tea meeting at the Masonic Hall, corner of Corella and Gulpha Streets, this Sunday (October 17) at 2pm. “In the past we’ve always had night-time meetings,” Ms Franks explained. “We have a lot of elderly folk in our community who are unable to come out at night, so we

thought an afternoon meeting might be a way of empowering them to learn more about what’s happening in the community.” An open invitation has been extended to Sunday’s special afternoon tea meeting, not only to residents in the area but also for those areas which do not now have Neighbourhood Watch in place.

Watching out for each other From page 1 “So we would like to invite them to come to see what can be done in their area and maybe they can establish groups in their area,” Ms Franks said. “There were groups right throughout Albury, but a lot of them have folded and we would like to see that come back. “We would love to see everyone come and join in and learn to know who their neighbours are and what they’re doing.” “I think we’ve lost that neighbourhood touch and we need to get it back.” Albury crime prevention officer, SenConstable Matt Barnes said Neighbourhood Watch continues to play a relevant role in today’s society. “Neighbourhood Watch is one area where the community can take responsibility and take action in relation to matters that affect themselves,” he said. “It’s a great way to help themselves and help the police at the same time.” Sen-Constable Barnes said it was “all about taking ownership of your area”. “We look to volunteers like Dot and the Northside Neighbourhood Watch for a range of things,” he said. “They help us and are well aware of what’s happening in their area.”

By PAT KOOPMAN RESIDENTS of Thurgoona are renowned for their community spirit and pride. That reputation was enhanced last Friday when the Woolshed Creek Community Group and Thurgoona Community Centre Garden Group combined to present the Spring Garden Gathering. Among the day’s festivities was the official opening of Thurgoona’s Community Garden by Albury Citizen of the Year, David Kefford. Mr Kefford described it as a proud day for all concerned. He said the community garden concept was unique to Thurgoona. “I haven’t seen it anywhere else in Albury, so it’s excellent that they’ve got behind it and have done it,” he told NewsWeekly. “That’s an area where they can do whatever they like … have a coffee and help grow the veggies.” Mr Kefford suggested that the entire community should get behind it. “This is an older suburb, but it’s fantastic,” he said. “As it’s growing there’s more people coming in and they all get behind it. 492371-KC41-10

“I think it’s wonderful.” The community garden complements the Thurgoona Community complex. Milton Kimball was on hand to provide gardening advice for the many people who attended the day. “It’s a real opportunity for me to enjoy the company of a group that’s put a lot of hard work into this community garden … it’s going to be fantastic for the area,” he said. “Nearly the whole community was seated here this morning. “There’s a lot of interest shown in this group.” Mr Kimball said the community garden was there to be enjoyed by everyone.

“They’re becoming a very popular aspect I suppose, or venue, for a lot of suburbs,” he said. “You get the locals out working, weeding.” Mr Kimball listed the edible crops that are grown, the raised garden beds for people with bad backs and the therapeutic aspect as among the benefits of the garden. “Just a great thing and it’s starting to happen all over Australia.” The community garden includes a sensory garden to please the five senses … sight, touch, smell, sound and taste. A habitat garden also includes native plants to attract nectar feeding birds.

School marks new approach to education

Step into the future VALUATION: Elizabeth Stevens inspects a 1930s deco cocktail shaker brought in for valuation by Margaret Murphy of Albury. Picture: ROD HARDINGE

Antiques get an airing By PAT KOOPMAN THE growing interest in antiques and collectables was evident in Albury on Saturday. A valuation day run by the Albury and District Historical Society, in conjunction with AlburyCity, attracted about 120 people to the Albury LibraryMuseum. “It was the third year we have run it,” organiser June Shanahan told NewsWeekly. “It went well … it was a really good day and we made a little bit of money for the Historical Society.” Elizabeth Stevens, an antique dealer from Antiques and Collectables on Radio 2UE and a specialist diamond valuer and gemologist, was kept particularly busy throughout the day with a steady stream of people seeking valuations, according to Ms Shanahan. “We could not have planned it any better,” she said. Among the many outstanding items presented for valuation were two violins, dating from the 1700s and 1800s.


By BLAIR THOMSON WODONGA preschool and primary school students are set to move into the new Southern Rise Education Centre at White Box Rise for the start of the 2011 school year. The new school will replace Wodonga South Primary, Strathmore Street Preschool and Silva Drive Preschool, and will include childcare, maternal and child health, playgroup and family support group services. Wodonga South Primary School principal Anne Klock said about 600 students from age three to 13 would move into the new school. “We’ve been working alongside the early years section of Wodonga Council to make sure that it is one big community as we move over ... we’ll have occupancy by Christmas and by January at the start of the next year, everyone will be over there on site,” she said. “The planning for over there is for 21st century education, it’s just magnificent. “This dilapidated site will be shut down, and bulldozed, hopefully,” she added with a laugh. Mrs Klock said the new school will have significantly improved features to the old Wodonga

EXCITED: Wodonga South Primary School students are keen to move into the new Southern Rise Education Centre, which will open for the 2011 school year. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON South Primary school site. “We’ve got big recreation halls with an indoor stadium, updated classrooms, bigger classrooms that aren’t closed off in four walls any more, far better preparation areas for teachers to prepare classes, we’ve got outdoor areas with tiger turf rather than playing in the mud, so yes, terrific facilities,” she said.

Fishathon to be a family day

BORDER anglers will be targeting the scourge of our rivers systems on Sunday when they enter AlburyCity’s annual Fishathon at Horseshoe Lagoon. The fishathon will target carp and all those caught will be composed to make garden fertiliser. There will be many prizes for

both children and adults who take part. Entry into the fishathon is free and it kicks off at 11am with a casting competition at 1.30pm. A final weigh-in conducted by the Lavington Anglers club will take place at 4pm with prizes awarded from 4.30pm.

2010 Premiership Merchandise in store NOW

“It’s a more open plan so we’ll have community members and parents in there working with the children.” Manager of recreation and learning at Wodonga Council, Debra Mudra, said a long planning process would ensure the school met future needs. “The planning has taken a long time but we wanted to make

sure we got this right and got the research that was needed to make sure we’re heading in the right direction,” she said. “Part of that plan is integration, so parents can access a whole range of services at the one site. “It means parents don’t have to go to different sites to access services and information.”

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.

fire season since the tragic Black Saturday bushfires hard lessons have still to be learnt by the Brumby Labor Government. One of the most publicised recommendations of the Bushfire Royal Commission’s interim report, handed down more than a year ago, was the recommendation to establish neighbourhood safer places. With the start of the 2010 bushfire season now just weeks away, Victoria has only 134 neighbourhood safer places compared to 789 in NSW. Both Victoria and NSW use similar guidelines for identifying and assessing sites for neighbourhood safer places so there is no excuse for Victoria to be this far behind. In the interests of those in high fire risk areas, the Brumby Labor Government needs to make every effort to speed up the implementation of neighbourhood safer places and fire refuges, ensure an effective and reliable early warning system is in place, and that fuel reduction takes place urgently. Fuel reduction and proper land management is vital in cutting down the risk of fire. The latest Department of Sustainability and Environment annual report, tabled recently in Parliament, highlights the hollowness of John Brumby’s commitment to undertake additional fuel reduction burns in the aftermath of Black Saturday. In a media conference in February this year, John Brumby stated the year’s fuel reduction burning program would “comfortably exceed the 150,000 hectares that was burnt in 08-09”. John Brumby, by his own admission, has indicated there has been ample opportunity for his government to carry out lifesaving fuel reduction burns. Yet the annual report demonstrates his government failed to reach that level of burns he promised in February and the report goes on to show the government actually burnt less hectares of land than the year before. How can Victorians be confident John Brumby will imple-

Bill Tilley By

State Member for Benambra ment the Royal Commission’s recommendation to triple fuel reduction burning to 385,000 hectares a year if he is failing his own benchmark now? Instead of ensuring the recommendations of the Bushfire Royal Commission are being implemented, John Brumby has embarked upon a public relations tour warning Victorians in bushfire-prone communities against complacency, yet he stands accused of just that. Since 1999 North East Victoria has faced three major complex fires. Life and property has been lost due to fire in our community. John Brumby must stop dragging his heels with the implementation of neighbourhood safer places, fire refuges and the carrying out of fuel reduction burns in Victoria. The Brumby Government failed to act on numerous recommendations and warnings prior to Black Saturday and the Premier has failed to live up to his word since. Finally, as we head into the fire season it is important to pay tribute to the ongoing role our CFA volunteers play in keeping our communities safe from bushfire. For more information about preparing your property for the fire season or how to get involved as a volunteer visit Fire action week is a time for all Victorians to better prepare for bushfires, and their government should be leading the charge. NewsWeekly is publising a 3-page fire action week feature today. It starts on page 16.

Dog of a policy will hurt us all THE Murray Darling Basin Plan is one of the worse plans ever conceived by any government in Australia’s history. It is an abomination to expect farmers and rural communities to bear the full impact of the environmental recovery of the river systems in Australia. The plan will reduce irrigation cropping by over $1 billion per year. It claims only 800 jobs will be lost. The reality shows that it’s more likely to near the tens of thousands of jobs lost. The Ovens and Murray River catchment areas are included with the Goulburn irrigators in these areas and also face up to 45 per cent reductions of water entitlements … the highest in the catchment. This will devastate our region and send thousands of businesses to the wall. We have already seen a backflip with Labor’s Tim Holding’s saying “I think the final Basin Plan will look a lot different to the guide that has just been released”. As part of the Coalition, I support a plan which establishes a sustainable use of water in the basin, one which balances economic, social and environmental outcomes. It’s not just about people, farms and businesses in the country. It is about our ability to grow our own food. There can be no responsible plan for the basin without a thorough socio/economic analysis and rigorous community consultation … that is unless Labor wants to deliberately destroy rural communities.

Working together NEIGHBOURHOOD Watch has been around since 1984 and continues to remain a vital component of our social fabric. It represents the community working hand-in-hand with our Police Force towards providing a safer community attitude. It enables the community to be the “eyes and ears” of the police in a combined battle against crime. Yet, for whatever reason, Neighbourhood Watch groups have come and gone over the years, particularly in the Albury area. So much so that Northside Neighbourhood Watch is the the only area which is fully functional, while there is also another group which functions during the summer months in Glenroy. The NSW Police Service has supported and promoted local Neighbourhood Watch programs since their inception. But they need our help. Northside Neighbourhood Watch regularly distributes 3500 newsletters in the North Albury and Lavington areas. Yet, its meetings are attended by 15 to 20 volunteers.

Residents throughout Albury have the opportunity to hear first hand the benefits of the Neighbourhood Watch program when Northside hosts a special afternoon tea meeting this Sunday. The meeting will be at the Masonic Hall, at the corner of Corella and Gulpha streets, starting at 2pm. Traditionally held at night, the afternoon meeting has been arranged to help those otherwise unable to attend the night-time meetings, to come along and learn more about the program. It is an open invitation for every concerned resident. Northside is aiming to lift the Neighbourhood Watch profile in the hope of boosting membership and spreading the network to encompass the whole of the city. Neighbourhood Watch is the local community and police working together to achieve safer communities for us all. To become an active member of Neighbourhood Watch, find out more at this Sunday’s afternoon tea meeting or you can ask at your local police station.

The collection includes works by eminent Australian artists Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman, Clifton Pugh, Russell Drysdale, John Percival, Noel Counihan and others working between 1939 and 1980. AlburyCity team leader art gallery and collections, Pam Owen, said the family who own the works wishes to remain anonymous, but were enthused about sharing the works with the wider community. “This is the first time these works have been exhibited publicly,” she said. “This generous gesture provides a wonderful new depth to the Albury Art Gallery collection that would be difficult to achieve otherwise and we are very grateful that the works will be part

of the collection for the foreseeable future.” Ms Owen described it as a “substantial number” of works to be added to the gallery’s collection. “To have them for an indefinite period is just wonderful,” she said. “They do flesh out a lot of the gaps in the collection and it gives us an opportunity to actually develop exhibitions around some of the paintings or all of them at some stage.” Ms Owen said the family had advised her that they wish to add to the collection. “Over time we will be the recipients of the purchases,” she said. Research has revealed that three of the artists in this collection have won the Archibald Prize. The exhibition, “Enrich, Entrust, Enjoy”, will be launched on November 11, but is open to the public now.

By KEN DYASON REDUCING the social isolation of seniors is an important aim of Age Concern’s day club activities. Offering six activity groups each week, the social support program provides participants with a chance to get out of the home, stay active and to meet new people. Those taking part are involved in crafts, entertainment, hearing guest speakers, playing bingo, trivia and sport such as carpet bowls. Age Concern assistant manager Jodie Hayes is looking for more seniors who might enjoy taking part in the activities. “The day clubs are a wonderful way for seniors who are living alone to get out and socialise,” Ms Hayes said. The activities are held at St Luke’s Church hall in Guinea Street, the Seventh Day Adventist Hall in David Street and the Thurgoona Community Centre hall. They run from 10am-2pm. For those who do not have transport Age Concern provides transport from home to the activity and return. Each group costs $6, which includes morning tea and a home cooked lunch. Transport for the day is an extra $6. In addition to the activity groups Age Concern has weekly bus trips where seniors

CRAFT: Pat Jones and Jean Stocker of Albury are helped with their craft work by volunteer Jill Meschke. are taken to places of interest within a 100km radius of Albury Wodonga. The trips cost $30 and include a cooked lunch. Ms Hayes said Age Concern encouraged seniors to put themselves forward for the activities. But because many were reluctant to “break the ice” it also encouraged family, friends and providers to nominate people who might benefit from the program. People nominated receive a personal visit from Ms Hayes who goes through the activities involved and helps the individual choose a suitable activity.

Then she picks up the newcomer for his or her first group. “There is a lot of support for newcomers,” she said. “Nobody is allowed to come into a group without knowing what is involved and being made to feel welcome.” The groups become a real social outing. “If a member does not attend an activity for some reason the first thing everyone wants to know is whether there is a problem or maybe an illness,” she said. Anybody wanting information can call the Age Concern offices in Townsend Street.

Call for tradies to work overseas

Spring Racing at Albury

By BLAIR THOMSON BORDER tradespeople will be given the opportunity to work overseas thanks to a scholarship offer from the Australian Overseas Foundation. Six tradies aged between 21 and 27 who have performed well with their employers and at TAFE, and also have a strong community spirit, will be given the scholarships. Australian Overseas Foundation director, Graeme Scott, spent a year and a half in America in the late 1960s thanks to the scholarship, and hopes others will make the most from the experience. “It’s something that’s really rewarding,” he said. “We find the scholarship people on return have more experience and knowledge, more maturity, and enhanced knowledge of their trades. “People obviously do things differently in other countries … not necessarily better, but they have a different way of approaching things which can be of great benefit.” Graeme said the workers were sought after by employers in the USA, Canada, England, Germany, France and Sweden.

HOLBROOK Early Learning Centre is having a jumbo garage sale and sausage sizzle on Saturday (October 16) to raise funds to upgrade the children’s playground facilities and equipment. Holbrook Early Learning Centre meets the needs of more than 80 families with some children travelling 60km a day to attend. There are now 110 children at the centre with the youngest just four months old. “The centre is an invaluable resource to the town and with recent grant cuts it can sometimes be hard to keep it going,” centre director Libby Keogh said. The centre caters for a variety of families as more and more parents from the land and rural businesses seek off-farm income to put food on the table. The garage sale will start at 8am at the centre in Swift Street in Holbrook. There will be something for everyone with lots of bric-a-brac, clothing, furniture, a cake stand, sausage sizzle and, of course, a raffle. “Local and national businesses have really come behind us to support this event,” Ms Keogh said.

Children flock to day of fun

DANCING: Cartoon hero BEN 10 had his excited young audience up and dancing during his live show at the Wodonga Children’s Fair. Pictures: ROD HARDINGE

By BLAIR THOMSON THE 21st Wodonga Children’s Fair was a huge success last Sunday with about 12,000 people attending the free event at the Wodonga Showgrounds. A live performance from cartoon superhero BEN 10 was the clear favourite of the young crowd, which also enjoyed the farm animals, live music, bungee trampoline and market stall giveaways. Wodonga Council events co-ordinator Jane Evans said planning for next year’s children’s fair had already begun. “We’ll be back next year bigger and better than before,� she said. “We’ve had nothing but positive comments and people have said they like the mix of nationally acclaimed entertainers and local performers. “I need to say a big thank you to our volunteers and sponsors; the event literally couldn’t happen without them and we appreciate their time and effort.�

PLAYING: Devika Rangubhatla was one of 12,000 people who enjoyed a range of fun activities at the Wodonga Children’s Fair.

Garden comes to life By BLAIR THOMSON DOZENS of volunteers planted roses at the Belvoir Park Celebration Rose Garden last Saturday to remember those touched by breast cancer. The section of the park has been transformed into a picturesque place where people can sit and reflect, according to Bravehearts on the Murray volunteer Anna Speedie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had up to 40 volunteers there at one time and the entire project saw over 80 tonnes of material moved by the volunteers and 150 roses planted,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gift to the community from Bravehearts and some important sponsors, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place for people to go down and reflect and contemplate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few people got quite emotional as they put the roses in as they were remembering loved ones, and it looks just brilliant.â&#x20AC;? The garden will be complete in about two weeks when a 2m tall bronze statue by local artist Henry Binning is put into place. People wanting to support the project and similar initiatives can make donations at any Hume Building Society branch.

Time to start the switch to digital television ALBURY Wodonga residents have until May 5 next year to prepare for the end of analogue television broadcasts. On that date the old analogue signal will be turned off and anyone who has not set up their home for the digital signal will be without television. The changeover will impact more than 450,000 households in country Victoria and southern NSW. The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, said they would join residents of the Mildura/Sunraysia district which became Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first digital-only TV region on June 30 this year. Digital television is already available to Albury Wodonga with many households now enjoying the change. Digital TV provides more channels and better sound and picture quality. The Executive Director of the Digital Switchover Taskforce, Andy Townend, said the Taskforce would work closely with broadcasters, retailers, antenna installers and community groups to assist with a smooth transition to digital-only TV. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people find the switch to digital relatively straightforward and inexpensive, but we

will be working closely with local communities across regional Victoria to help everybody understand how to get ready for digital TV,â&#x20AC;? Mr Townend said. The Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s household assistance scheme would provide support for eligible households which required some additional,

practical help to make the switch to digital TV. This includes households where one person receives the maximum rate of the age pension, disability support pension, carer payment, or Department of Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs service pension or income support supplement.

Reflections of nation’s lifeblood

REFLECTIONS: Robert Klein-Boonschate with one of his exhibition works currently on display at the GIGS Fine Art Gallery. Picture: PAT KOOPMAN

By PAT KOOPMAN ARTIST Robert KleinBoonschate appreciates the majesty and beauty of the iconic Murray River more than most. It has provided the inspiration for his latest exhibition, “Reflections”. “It’s the lifeblood really of the southern part of Australia … half of the continent,” he told NewsWeekly at last Friday evening’s official opening. “The health probably of the entire continent breathes from it. “So, yes I think it’s the most important river system in Australia and so many people depend on it.” Robert has a special

affinity with the Murray River. He spent his adolescent years growing up in the Border region and spent a lot of time swimming in this part of the river. “I’ve just enjoyed the river and I never thought much about it because it looked so healthy and vital on this stretch,” he explained. “But then I’ve been on holidays and couldn’t believe what it turns into and how much land it covers, how it changes, the landscape around it and how impressive the system really is.” The Coorong in South Australia has also provided Robert with inspiration for

his works, as well as the sand dunes in South Australia around Lake Albert. “So I’ve seen the whole system in a way, not all of it but in certain sections,” he said. “I’ve realised what an incredibly complex, rich system it is and how it changes. “I can see how people living on different stretches of it have formed entirely different opinions about the river.” The river inspires Robert in many different ways. “In many ways it is a complicated story isn’t it?,” he said. This latest exhibition is something he has always wanted to do.

“They are very traditional looking paintings, but a little bit more in a contemporary way as well,” he explained. “Also really focussing on water and trying to portray the reflection, the real vegetation and the reflection of it, and the distortions and how the two marry so amazingly. “Using that as a metaphor for the richness and the diversity of it.” The exhibition at the GIGS Fine Art Gallery, Gateway Village, Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga, will continue until October 31. The gallery is open from 10am-4pm, Tuesday to Sunday, each week. Entry is free.

Cash for prostate research

Ready for Tomorrow is the Victorian Government’s $631 million blueprint to protect and strengthen our regional and rural way of life, now and for future generations. The blueprint includes: $110m for Skills & Young People $99m Backing Jobs & Industry

By PAT KOOPMAN THE Lions Club of Albury has helped to raise prostate cancer awareness and raise funds for the cause at the same time. Club president Ken Edgar presented a cheque for $1000 to David Ryan, from the Albury Wodonga Prostate Cancer Support Network. Mr Ryan described the donation as “a magic little surprise”.

“The money will be well spent in more efforts to raise the awareness of prostate cancer and its early detection,” he said Mr Ryan said it was “very important” to initiate conversation about prostate cancer. “If prostate cancer can be located at any early stage it can be a life saver,” he said. Men should have prostate checks from the age of 45.

Students gain from upgrade

UNVEILED: Albury Wodonga Community College chairwoman Kerryn Dwyer-Parish unveils the plaque along with college life member Reg Morley.

By PAT KOOPMAN THE Albury Wodonga Community College will remember 2010 as an outstanding year, according to college chief executive officer Rodney Wangman. Mr Wangman said this was even more apparent following the completion of the Commonwealth funded ICET project. Featuring a new lecture room which can seat 70 students, and four new classrooms, the $1.8 million High Street building will increase the school’s student capacity. “As we celebrate the conclusion of this $1.4 million Commonwealth funded project in our 36th year


of operation, I will reflect briefly on this Commonwealth commitment and, of course, thank the many people involved in our project’s completion,” Mr Wangman told guests at the official opening. “Firstly the Commonwealth Government is acknowledged and congratulated in releasing $100 million to our community college sector. “These funds have been spread across Australia and represent a first in direct funding to our college organisations.” Mr Wangman said the project was delivered on time, within budget and with greater value for money than was originally

anticipated in the planning phase. “With their $1.4 million, our Community College has added a further $400,000 of building improvements through our own funds, in-kind works and with the support of the City of Wodonga in our High Street pavement renewal.” Mr Wangman also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the college’s directors and the many other local people involved in the project. “To the City of Wodonga, my thanks goes to the staff in the planning and building departments who have seen the building aspirations we had, worked closely with us and have in addition set our

course going forward to our further South Street redevelopments currently starting,” he said. “The council is also acknowledged in contributing approximately $17,000 towards an $80,000 rebuild of our High Street pavement area.” Mr Wangman said the improvements would directly help staff to assist students. “The students will be in better facilities, thus aiding their learning,” he said. “Their learning achievements will increase our national productivity and grow their families. “This is the government’s value for money proposition statement.”

AWARD: Albury Wodonga Community College director Rod Jones presented the Jim Saleeba Award to Aileen Adams, in recognition of her volunteer work.

If you’re feeling frustrated, worried or confused about choosing the right air conditioner for your home, if you’re looking for a good deal but don’t want to waste money on a “lemon” that’ll only cost you more later on, then you’ll love reading the updated annual “2009 Air Conditioner Quality Assured” report. More and more people are selling air conditioners and sadly the quality control has dropped to an embarrassingly low rate causing massive ongoing fees for unsuspecting homeowners. Making matters worse, a growing number of unqualified and in experienced tradesmen are installing these units to make a quick buck, but are leaving a trail of disasters and faulty work behind them.

Message from the Premier John Brumby Victoria is one of the most liveable places in the world.

years of prolonged drought and the summer fire risk is still very real.

Our state is famous for its magnificent natural attractions and network of beautiful towns and cities.

Last year, the Victorian Government led the first ever Fire Action Week – a week dedicated to preparing our homes and communities for the fire season.

But Victoria is also one of the most fire-prone places in the world. As we continue to learn the lessons of the terrible fires of February 2009 and drive the next stage of rebuilding in the communities affected, a new fire season is almost here.

This year, Fire Action Week runs from October 10 to October 17 and will again be an important time for all Victorians to prepare.

In recent months there’s been a lot of rain and in some parts of the state, serious flooding.

It’s an opportunity for you to find out more about the fire risk to you – whether you are planning a holiday in the country or coast, or live and work in a fire-prone area.

But this wet weather follows 13

This Fire Ready feature contains

Premier John Brumby essential information to help keep you, your family your friends and your community safe from the threat of fire.

If you live in a high-risk area, I strongly encourage you to attend a Country Fire Authority Fireguard group or Fire Ready Victoria meeting to help you develop your own personal fire plan.

We want to put as much high quality, accurate and timely information as possible in the hands of individuals so that during a bushfire threat you can make informed decisions about how you respond.

Your local community and fire agency, whether it’s the CFA or Metropolitan Fire Brigade, will help you understand how your environment could be impacted and how you can better prepare for this fire season.

That way – together – we will continue to rise to the challenge of making Victoria as fire-safe and fireready as possible.

We’ve made big changes to how we prepare for and fight fires and continue to drive a new focus on protecting and preserving human life from the threat of bushfires.

John Brumby Premier of Victoria

Making Victoria FireReady

9 things you should do right now. Victoria is one of the most fire-prone areas in the world. So if you live in a bush, coastal or urban fringe area, or even if you just travel to one on a day trip or holiday, you need to be FireReady. 1 Many homes in high risk bushfire areas are not built to withstand bushfire and survival must be your main priority. To find out if you could defend your house from bushfire, use the CFA’s Household Bushfire Self-Assessment Tool online or book a free CFA site visit at or call 1800 240 667.

Fire Action Week.

2 Start clearing up around your property. Even if you plan to leave well before a fire threatens, you may not be able to. A well-prepared building can shield you from radiant heat, which can kill you. 3 Find out the location of the nearest Neighbourhood Safer Place and how to get there. The CFA website lists Neighbourhood Safer Places. 4 Pack your relocation kit. This should contain, food, water, woollen blankets, mobile phone with charger, a first-aid kit, medication, prescriptions, important contacts, pet food and bedding and anything else you may need away from home. 5 Be aware of your children’s school Bushfire Survival Plan by talking to school staff or visit

6 Prepare a written Bushfire Survival Plan and consider the needs of the elderly, people with special needs, children, pets and/or livestock. Obtain your free FireReady Kit from or call 1800 240 667. 7 Practise your Bushfire Survival Plan – doing so increases your chances of survival in a fire. Make sure you have back-up plans and alternative exit routes in place. Fires are erratic and can arrive at unexpected times. 8 Regularly monitor conditions, know the Fire Danger Rating in your area and keep up-to-date by tuning into ABC Local Radio, commercial radio and SKY NEWS. Fire Danger Ratings are your trigger to act. 9 To be better prepared in your local area, visit for your local Community Fireguard Group and/or attend FireReady Victoria community meetings.

So get involved with Fire Action week and start preparing now. Your survival and the survival of your family could depend on it. For a free FireReady Kit, or for more information on how to prepare, act and survive, visit or call 1800 240 667.

Get involved and get ready for the fire season. Fire Action Week is the time for all Victorians to start preparing for the fire season. Despite our wet winter, we’re facing yet another highly dangerous summer. From October 10 to 17, there will be a range of special Fire Action Week events and activities in communities across the state to help you plan and prepare for the fire season. Make sure you get involved. Your survival, and the survival of your family, could depend on it.

Now is the time to prepare A DECADE of drought followed by a flurry of growth after one of the wettest winters on record has increased the need to be well prepared for the fire season. Victorian Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley is urging all Victorians who live, work or plan to holiday in areas of high fire risk to identify potential fire hazards, clean up their properties and develop a fire plan. Fire Action Week, which runs from October 10-17, is the perfect time to start getting ready for the coming summer.

Fire week features a series of activities across the state – including fire planning workshops in more than 20 communities. These workshops aim to give people living in fire prone areas practical advice and tips about how to protect themselves and their families as part of their bushfire survival plan. “Planning ahead can save you and your family from being killed by a fire,” Mr Lapsley said. Mr Lapsley said fires don’t just pose a threat to people who live in country Victoria.

Be fire safe if you are on holidays

If you plan to travel or go on holiday in areas close to bush, coastal areas or parklands in Victoria, you must carefully plan how you will respond when fire threatens. Holidaymakers face the same risk as residents in fire-prone areas across Victoria. But the prospect of a season of high fire risk should not deter you from visiting country Victoria this summer providing you plan ahead and monitor local conditions. You are potentially at risk this fire season if you: • Go on a camping trip in fire-prone areas. • Stay at a caravan park. • Holiday at a beach house. • Visit or house-sit a country property. • Spend a weekend or a day at the beach or in the country. Consider these tips for planning a safe holiday: • Check the fire danger rating daily, which predicts how fire risk is affected by forecast weather conditions. They are forecast up to three days in advance. • Plan activities carefully on hot, dry and windy days. Avoid bushwalking or picnicking in the bush. Instead, visit a shopping centre or cinema in town, or visit an area of low fire risk. Contact your nearest Visitor Information Centre for tips on other tourist activities in safer areas such as larger regional cities. • Avoid camping or hiking in bushfire-prone areas during days with a fire danger rating of severe, extreme or code red (catastrophic). On these days, it’s better to visit safer places such as cities and towns.

Certain beaches may also be safer unless they are narrow and have a lot of vegetation close by. • Planning and caution will improve your safety and enjoyment of the outdoors. A code red (catastrophic) rating is your trigger to leave the day before or first thing in the morning. Avoid any non-essential travel during days of high fire danger until the warning period has ended. • If you have booked a holiday that coincides with a day of code red rating, delay your trip until the danger period is over. • Do not rely on electronic mapping devices like GPS or mobile phones as they may be affected by smoke and local conditions. Keep a hard copy of local maps. • Find out if there is a neighbourhood safer place in your area in case bushfire strikes without warning. Make sure you have a relocation kit accessible at all times, even on outings. Include protective clothing for all family members. If you are outdoors when a fire starts: • Leave the area immediately if it is safe to do so. Do not wait to see smoke and flames. • If you cannot leave safely, shelter at a designated neighbourhood safer place of last resort. If there is no cover: • Find a large, open area as far as possible from trees and vegetation, or shelter behind a rocky outcrop or wall or in a large dam or lake. • Avoid slopes and hilltops – avoid being above the fire. • DO NOT seek refuge in above-ground tanks or swimming pools.

Bush, scrub and grass fires can also place lives and property in jeopardy in urban fringe areas, where the population is increasing. Holidaymakers also need to carefully plan ahead when travelling on hot, dry and windy days. “None of us can afford to be complacent,’’ Mr Lapsley said. “Remember, leaving well before a bushfire arrives in your area is your safest and lowest risk option. “Get on the front foot with your fire safety – attend a fire ready Victoria meeting or join your local community fireguard group or

visit the CFA website for advice about preparing a bushfire survival plan.’’ Victoria’s firefighters are committed to protecting life, but some fires move too quickly and some conditions are too extreme for people to rely on the fire services for personal protection. There are warning systems in place including emergency alert, the telephone emergency warning system. Warnings are broadcast on ABC local radio, commercial radio stations and Sky News TV, and CFA

and Department of Sustainability and Environment websites have simultaneous warnings. “If you receive a warning, act immediately on the advice, but you should not rely solely on warnings to act as a fire might start close to your home resulting in fire agencies having insufficient time to issue a warning,’’ Mr Lapsley said. “That’s why it’s important to be vigilant and to plan ahead.’’ For more information visit the CFA website or call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667.

Making Victoria FireReady:

Victoria’s Total Fire Ban districts have changed. Victoria now has nine Total Fire Ban districts that align with the nine Victorian Bureau of Meteorology weather districts. This means Total Fire Bans and Fire Danger Ratings now apply to the same districts. Total Fire Bans are declared by the CFA on days when fires are likely to spread rapidly and be difficult to control. They can be declared either state wide or in certain districts. Fire Danger Ratings predict fire behaviour should a fire start. The Fire Danger Rating level is to be used as your trigger to leave. For more information on what you can and cannot do on Total Fire Ban days and the importance of Fire Danger Ratings, visit or call 1800 240 667.

Free green waste service By BLAIR THOMSON WODONGA Council hopes to reduce the risk of fire on the Border in the coming fire season by offering free green waste disposal this weekend. Wodonga residents can dump their trees, logs, plants, and other green waste at the Wodonga Transfer Station in Kane Road free of charge on Saturday and Sunday. Council’s manager environment and community protection Mark Verbaken, said the service was important given recent heavy rainfall. “While it’s hard to believe the new fire season is almost here after the recent rainfall, it’s actually increased the vegetation growth and it’s vital residents start planning and preparing now,” he said. “As well as using fire action week to discuss their situation and prepare their fire plan, residents are encouraged to start clearing around their property.” Wodonga Council waste management co-ordinator, David Pinder, said he ex-

pected a big increase in people bringing green waste to the tip. “There are no limits that apply, so people can drop off as much as they want to,” he said. “We’re expecting to generate about 1000 cubic metres of green waste, which is about three or four times the normal volume for any given weekend. “And we’re not into the business of being too pedantic about it; if people say they have green waste as part of their weekend clean up, we’ll take that at face value.” Mr Pinder said about 500 people were expected to use the free service, with all waste to be mulched. Council has sent letters to 6100 homes with increased fire danger encouraging them to be prepared for the fire season and dispose of their green waste, as well as mentioning the recently established Neighbourhood Safer Places at Birallee Park, Martin Park Oval and Kelly Park to be used as a last resort during a bushfire.

Do your own preserved lemons.....




EFORE lemons disappear this season, whip up a batch to see you through the year ahead. Preserved lemons are a delicious (some say additive) ingredient used in many Middle Eastern and North African dishes, to give a lemon flavour without the acidity of fresh lemons. While popular in Moroccan tagines in winter, I’ve listed many other everyday uses for them throughout the year. Easy to make, the way I preserve lemons is to start with beautiful fresh lemons and only add salt, lemon juice, bay leaves, peppercorns, cloves and a little olive oil. Then you need to set them aside to mature for about three weeks. Try this speedy method: Preserved in the traditional way, lemons take at least six weeks to mature. A more modern method is to freeze the lemons first

( Hazeldenes Free Range Chicken (Fully prepared & ready to cook fresh portions

...they’re exotic and delicious then they can be used in recipes in half the time. (Avoid using lemons with a thin skin, such as the meyer variety, as these are too fragile when preserved). Only the outer rind of the preserved lemon is used, so scrape away the flesh and the layer of white pith and discard. To remove excess saltiness, rinse lemon rind under cold water and pat dry on paper towels. Once opened, store the jar of preserved lemons in the refrigerator. Store-bought lemons need to be washed in warm water to remove any wax coating.

10 easy ways to use preserved lemons

* Firstly, always chop the rind finely or cut into fine strips as the lemon flavour is quite intense.

1 Add to a zingy salad made from cooked prawns, sliced semi-dried tomatoes, black olives, sliced red onion, diced fetta and rocket leaves in a “garlicky” chive dressing. 2 Add to prepared couscous with chopped mint or flat leaf parsley and toasted pine nuts. Great to serve with lamb, beef, chicken, pork, prawns or sausages. 3 Add to a zesty potato salad, made from whole baby potatoes, chopped Lebanese cucumber, sliced shallots and black olives. Drizzle with an olive oil and lemon juice dressing. 4 Combine with finely chopped chives and scatter over fresh oysters on the shell, over sliced smoked salmon or over sliced avocado. 5 Add to mayonnaise or aioli with chopped coriander or parsley. Makes a fabulous dip

for cooked prawns, asparagus spears or vegetable sticks. 6 Add to thick Greek-style plain yogurt with chopped mint and chives and use as a dip for vegetable sticks or spoon over cooked fish, chicken or prawns. 7 Add to pasta, rice, chickpea or lentil salads. Excellent in a prawn or salmon risotto. 8 Add to stuffings for baked chicken, lamb or fish. 9 Add to mayonnaise for chicken sandwiches or wraps, or spoon the lemon mayo over freshly cooked and cooled asparagus spears. 10 Add to 50/50 mayonnaise and plain yoghurt and spoon over freshly cooked asparagus spears, smoked trout, sliced ham or cooked prawns.

Rosé - A serious look at a non-serious wine




OSÉ is probably the most enigmatic of wines. It is largely ignored by the wine drinking public (evidenced by its almost universal omission from wine lists) yet for the wine cognoscenti it holds a special place in the wine and food spectrum.

Why is it ignored? A difficult question. Some argue it is because we have heaps of yummy red and white options, which push Rosé to the bottom of the drinking list. Its pink colour, and the fact that many versions were sweetish meant we boys relegated it to the “girls list” and looked for more macho styles. In some ways, winemakers were their own worst enemy, in producing “lolly” styles that have simply lost favour over the years.

Why bother with it? The simple answer – Rosé can be a wonderful wine style beautifully suited to our climate and casual lifestyle. It is not meant to be aged – a couple of years bottle age is about the max. With filtered light through the trees at a summer lunch, it can be a wonderful accompaniment to light finger food as a pre-luncheon “tipple”. Also, winemakers are wising up and producing styles that have been fermented dry with extra layers of flavour.

Why is it pink? One of the urban myths about grapes is

that they are either completely white or red. Not so. With one notable exception (Alicante Bouchet) pretty much all the grape varieties we know and love are in fact white pulp. The colour comes from the skins so that white wine essentially stays white but red wine turns red after the skins are plunged into the fermenting grape juice. In making Rosé, the winemaker waits until the fermenting grape skins have formed a “cap” and then draws off the pinkish juice underneath (which has only taken up a little bit of colour). This process is known as saignée or “bleeding”. Cheaper versions are made by simply adding a bit of red wine to a vat of white wine, but as Rosé is generally so relatively cheap, there is no point in trying to look for a “bargain”.

So when do I drink it? Rosé can be enjoyed at pretty much any time of the day, but for me it starts to lose some attraction after the early evening. In some ways it is not regarded as a “serious” evening dining wine, although there can be exceptions. I think if you stick to Rosé at lunchtime, or perhaps as a pre-dinner drink, it is pretty hard to go wrong. It is also a wine for spring, summer and early autumn and not for winter consumption. Its beautiful

COLOUR: The hues are different but all these wines are Rosé. colour and light texture evoke the softness of spring days, and as a refreshing light style, it is a natural for our hot summer days.

Who makes the best versions? For some odd reason, here in Australia we have had little success with the style, undoubtedly because the early versions were a bit sugary, and overseas products have always been pretty cheap – so it was a case of “why bother” with the local brew. I still think that wine industry is struggling to sell the style, but I am watching with interest the rebranding and repackaging of Rosé to the younger wine drinkers, with funky labels and clear white bottles accentuating the “pinkness”, I would not at all be surprised to see a whole new market segment embracing “pink wine” in the next few years. At the risk of a barrage of emails, my thoughts are that Turkey Flat Rosé from the Barossa has probably held pole position in Oz for some years but the rest of the field is certainly catching up. Around our local “patch”, many of our winemakers are producing Rosé styles, not the least of which are Cofield Wines at Rutherglen who have come up with a Rosé range from slightly bubbly through to a sweeter pink Moscato.

Overseas look for Rosés from the Loire Valley and Provence areas of France, Rosado from Spain, Rosato from Italy and if you are really adventurous, try Weissherbst from Germany.

Why should I worry? Well, you are never going to know Rosé until you try it. I had a personal prejudice against Rosé for some years, totally discounting the local sweet Aussie styles, and seeing only the odd bottle with merit from overseas. All that changed one day at lunch in Portugal, on a terrace overlooking the old city of Lisbon, when we laughingly ordered a bottle of Mateus to have with our sandwich. On a warm day, this chilled bottle of Portuguese sunshine was a perfect match to the light food. Sure, when I tried the same brand back in Australia it did not quite come up to speed (obviously it does not travel well…), but it reminded me how this unique wine has a place in the enjoyment of wine and food. So, set aside your prejudices and give Rosé a “go” in the best Aussie tradition. I think you will be pleasantly surprised, and quite frankly, you could do a whole lot worse in the coming warmer months.

Howlong in bloom P EEKING over fences is always tempting and for those of us besotted with all manner of plants and gardens, this habit has absolutely nothing to do with stickybeaking. No, it is all a matter of a burning need to know just what it is that’s flowering in the garden up the road, how on earth is this shrub able to thrive when I cannot even get it to stay alive and I wonder if that gardener would mind if I asked her the name of the beautifully perfumed rose that’s leaping over the fence? Obsessed as I am about all things that grow in gardens, I have to admit to being a peeker over fences. More often than not too, I could not recall what the house was made of, if it had curtains or blinds or even if there was a car parked in the yard but if an amazing iris was bursting out or a daphne was wafting a delicious perfume about, I would recall all the minute details. From the point of view of the gardener though, I’m sure that all would see this habit of passers-by as most flattering; after all, some of the reward for our planning and toil must surely be the delight and pleasure our gardens afford not only family and friends but strangers passing by. The opportunity to not just peep over the fence but to actually stroll right in is offering soon in Howlong. This is a community minded town just down the Murray from Albury and after a privileged tour of gardens

DISPLAY: Ask the gardener questions ... Lorraine Barge will be welcoming garden walkers.

Gardening GURU



FEATURE: An old Furphy tank provided an interesting highlight to the Wilkins garden that will be part of the Howlong walk. there, I’m convinced that this is a place that, for some reason or other, actually draws gardeners there to live. The active garden club, the annual flower show and every garden in town indicates a consciousness for pleasant and agreeable surroundings. On Saturday, October 23, you are invited to take a garden stroll in Howlong. Six gardens are open for this high spring occasion and many of them being works in progress or having newly establishing sections will generate many ideas and much encouragement for all visitors. A distinctly cottage style garden with a predominance of mauve, lavender and blue flowers, is first on the list for strollers followed by a relaxed, but slightly more formal plot in Pell Street where the emphasis is distinctly on low maintenance, affording the owners time to travel. Even the English Box hedges with enclosed parterre gardens are undemanding and overall this is a great example of compact and interesting planning. The Johnson Court premises features a couple of distinct garden styles, the modern design being at the rear of the block, with a hidden vegetable garden and a tidy chook house tucked in beyond. Two Victoria Street gardens also accentuate ease of maintenance. At number 148, the half acre is an outstanding example of a garden laid out and maintained by senior folk specifically to allow them to remain without being overwhelmed by excessive chores. Interest is added with the addition of an archway, birdbath and an old furphy. Next door also features archways with colourful flowering climbers. The last, quite large garden had

beautiful, established bones when the new owners took over. Being a bed and breakfast, the outlook from the guest rooms is delightful, and with extensive new landscaping which features connecting ponds, is set to be even more beautiful. Great ideas are to be gleaned here as the new developments are such that any of us could do. Tough and attractive groundcovers are used beneath the ornamental trees and a new iris project is under way too. To join in with this garden walk, stop at the Howlong Pioneer Park from 1pm onwards on Saturday, October 23. The cost of $10 is great value, covering the six gardens plus afternoon tea starting at 3pm at the last garden. The Pioneer Park is easy to find at the main, Albury side entrance into town. Do come for a pleasant garden stroll – the roses are plumping up and, along with all of the other late spring splendours, promise an enchanting visit.

Treasured plants

Some gardeners have an unusual plant that they have cherished, and often, where possible, share with fellow gardeners. One such unusual and much enjoyed plant is the Dracunculus vulgare belonging to Albury gardener Helen Martin. Also called the Dragon Arum or Stinking Lily, this bulbous plant with large leaves bears the most beautiful spathe flowers in a rich burgundy-black colour in spring. It is probably not the flower to give to that special someone as the unfortunate smell given off by the flower also attracts flies. Helen brought this interesting plant from her parents’ home and has treasured it for many years.

Iris show

A GREAT opportunity to see a fabulous array of iris is offering this weekend at the Inland Region Iris Society show at the Wodonga Civic Centre. Sunday is open day for the public, from 8am-4pm, and a feast of these beautiful, but hardy, flowers is promised along with stalls, the chance to speak to growers, drinks and morning and afternoon tea. If you have never exhibited before and would like to enter even one flower spike, then contact Maria Rosa Taylor before the end of Friday at the RACV office in Wodonga or on 0413 188 375. Entries are being set up on Saturday, from 8am-4pm. This event is a part of Seniors Celebrations and entry to the Sunday show is free to seniors card holders.

TOURING: John Williamson is celebrating his 40 years in the music industry with a national tour, which comes to Albury tonight.

True blue Aussie still in demand on the Border By BLAIR THOMSON THE songs of John Williamson have been the soundtrack to the Australian landscape for the past 40 years. Williamson has fought for the conservation of the environment through his music while eliciting vivid images of the land he tries to protect. His love for nature started when Williamson’s family moved from farmland in Quambatook in north west Victoria, to Croppa Creek in NSW, when he was 19. “The bush was absolutely different,” he told NewsWeekly. “I was already into birds and stuff anyway, and I guess that there was a latent love of the bush there. “I think I realised I loved to walk amongst it, I just had an innate love of the place, and all the emus, kangaroos and wallabies … I was seeing the bush in it’s virgin state, it was like living in a park.” Williamson had begun playing ukulele at age seven and had taught himself how to play bush harmonica, and played in a band alongside his cousin. A four year stint at Scotch College in Melbourne in the early 60s had exposed him to artists like Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Harry Belafonte, but it wasn’t until 1970 that he had his first hit with Old Man Emu. “My dad’s cousin was the music director of television show New Faces so I landed a spot there without having to wait in line,” he explained. “Even the camera men were jumping around to Old Man Emu, so I knew I had a hit, but where to go from there was a problem because it was such a novelty song. “I actually went back to harvesting in 1976, that was six years after I’d released Old Man Emu ... I was lucky I didn’t lose my fingers in a fan

belt or drive belt. “It really took me 13 years to find my straps as a writer, and It probably wasn’t until Mallee Boy come out that people thought I was a songwriter.” The album thrust Williamson into stardom thanks to songs like Galleries of Pink Galahs, Raining on the Rock, Cootamundra Wattle, and the anthemic True Blue. “True Blue is my calling card … it’s like pop artists, they all have one big song that everyone comes to hear,” he said. While he has played the song hundreds, perhaps thousands of times to huge crowds, Williamson said he prefers playing to more intimate audiences. “Deep down the most enjoyable thing is to perform to 500 or 1000 people that have come to see my show,” he said.

“But some things that will probably go down in my memory are playing at Steve Irwin’s memorial service, the first time I got 80,000 people singing Waltzing Matilda at the Bledisloe Cup in 1998 and then the Wallabies went on to win the World Cup, and the Bali Bombings memorial service.” But some of his songs haven’t been so well received, like the antilogging song Rip Rip Woodchip. “As far as I know, I’m not welcome in the Bega RSL because I played Rip Rip Woodchip and their clientele were all woodchippers and living off it,” he said with a laugh. Williamson has always been well received in Albury, with his show at the Commercial Club tonight (Friday, October 15) sold out. “Albury has always been good for me, maybe it’s a town that loves to be entertained,” he said.

CD Review Artist: The Naked and Famous Album: Passive Me, Aggressive You

THE Naked and Famous are similar to a young football player drafted into the AFL: there’s a lot of pressure to deliver on their promises and the hype they’ve generated. Since forming two years ago they’ve been an underground band slowly edging towards success and a mainstream following … this album signifies their entry into the mainstream by proving that hype was indeed justified. The 13 track debut features heavy references to 80s synth pop and draws comparisons to the dreamy, effect-driven sound of MGMT with fuzzy, distorted bass and heavily layered tracks.

Airy vocals add to the effect. Lots of work has gone into the production side of Passive Me, Aggressive You, with the end product best heard through headphones to experience the full spectrum of sound embedded in the songs.

Performing at their peak

By BLAIR THOMSON A SERIES of dance numbers and short films featuring disabled and able-bodied performers are featured in Embodied, which is now showing at the Butter Factory Theatre. The second production of the Dis/assemble dance troop is an “experiment”, according to the group’s artistic director, Tim Podesta. “It’s a collaboration between disabled and able dancers, some are students, some are professionals, and

we’re creating a dance environment which fits into the professional sector but is integrated,” he said. “We’re trying to expand on people’s understanding of contemporary dance but also disability within the dance structure. “I’d call it a bit of an experiment in that the content is contemporary dance and there’s also three short films that we’ve made over the year.” Tim said the aim was to create employment for the dancers and expand upon

the group’s success. He said the group produced work of a high standard. “I think a lot of people when they hear of a disability project, they expect it to be below par on every level, but this is about how amazing these dancers are as a whole and the quality and calibre of the project,” he said.

Plain sailing on lake Sports GOSS WITH


LIGHT to moderate winds and a relatively flat Lake Hume heralded fast close racing on Sunday in the latest round of racing for the Albury Wodonga Yacht club. In the Commodore’s Trophy, club vice commodore, Terry Caldwell took a gun crew of former national champions aboard Pisces to take line honours with Jeff Stirling on Live Wire following close behind in second and Wes Ward aboard The Grey Ghost crossing in third. Cameron and Murray McPherson took to the lake for their first time aboard Minnow and managed to come home first in the Rear Commodore’s trophy for junior sailors. The handicap and championship races were held in lightening winds and Caldwell again took the honours but Ward came into his own in the third race beating Caldwell across the line, followed by Paul Ransley in Joint Adventure. ALBURY Sports Stadium has confirmed it will host a round of the Women’s National Basketball League on November 13. The game, between Canberra Capitals and Bendigo Spirit has been in the planning stages for some time and it will be the first time a WNBL home and away game has been played at the stadium. Basketball ACT is excited about the prospects of forming a relationship with Albury Council and was hopeful of an ongoing partnership. The match will include ex-Lady Bandit players, Jess Bibby, (Canberra) and Toni Edmondson, (Bendigo) as well as such big name players as Suzy Batkovic and Kristi Harrower. THE stadium has also upgraded its website to bring it in line with the growing needs of the centre and the sporting community. Manager Michael Stanton, said the site now contained a lot more information including links to user groups of the centre such as the Bandits basketball teams and the Zumba program currently running. “There’s just a lot more information as far as contact details, registration details, prices and when the new seasons start,” Mr Stanton said. He said between the staff at the stadium and the communications team at Albury council a lot of work had gone into the site. “We think we’ve got it to a good point now,” he said. Sports that can be accessed on the new site include basketball which involves Billy Ball and Aussie Hoops, netball, volleyball, futsal, social badminton and any other sport associated with the centre. THE Border BMX club held the first of its three-race series on Sunday at its Wodonga track in almost perfect conditions. The track was dry and hard due to the fine weather conditions experienced recently on the Border making racing fast and furious. A field of 14 riders showed up for the event with classes set up for young riders, new members and seasoned riders alike. For the A grade Garath Mack took out first ahead of Tom Masterson with Daniel Frauenfelder coming home third. Nick Walsh took out the B grade from Julian Ayers and Jacob Frauenfelder. In the C grade, Caitlin Wilson took the honours ahead of Jayden Adams with Kai Wilson coming home third while in the D grade it was Macauly Hampton, Zeik Lavender coming home in second with Thomas Bauer taking third. The next round will be held on October 31.

At 86, Don loves being part of game

ACTION: Don Dennis in action at a T20 match at Alexandra Park on Saturday.

By TREVOR JACKSON OFFICIATING in any sport can be a thankless task. For Cricket Albury Wodonga getting enough umpires is always a battle. Despite the general lack of interest in the job, Don Dennis has been doing it for 56 years and has no plans to retire in the near future. Don has spent more than 20 years umpiring matches on the Border. Prior to that he was based in Melbourne. Standing out in the summer heat all day might not appeal to everyone but it’s something Don said he enjoys, even at 86 years of age. “I’ve always maintained if you’re out there doing your job you don’t notice it,” Don said. “You shouldn’t if you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing … concentrating on the game. “I still enjoy it … I love to be out there, I really do, otherwise you wouldn’t do it.” He said the camaraderie of the fellow umpires and players was one of the worthwhile experiences of the job as well as travelling to different areas and different games and the opportunity to continue to be involved in the sport he loved. “You can continue on if you keep at it,” he said. “You instil it in yourself that you’ve got to be out there doing it rather than leaning over the

fence watching the action.” Don began playing cricket after being discharged from the Army in 1946. After many years in the sport he called it quits but immediately began umpiring in Melbourne, moving to the Border several years later. He said the transition from playing to officiating was a comfortable one as he had often umpired while playing back in the early days. “I thought that was the next automatic progression that you do … you go from playing to umpiring,” he said. “There were six umpires up here when I moved here. I was elected president and have been doing it ever since.” Don doesn’t just umpire district cricket but is also involved in mid-week school matches, travelling extensively in the process. “It keeps you pretty busy,” he said. “You’re on the go all the time but that’s the way to be … it’s why you keep going, instead of sitting back watching television, get out and about.” With the new cricket season upon us umpires are desperately needed to cover all games, and training and support is provided for those who want to step up. Anyone interested in umpiring can contact Don Dennis on 0400 759 462 or Brian Rowe on 6025 1596.

New emphasis on the juniors By TREVOR JACKSON OVENS and Murray water polo is up and running for the new season and has added a junior development squad to their bag of tricks. The best players and coaches in the weekly domestic competition for under 16 boys and girls will be chosen to play an extra game a week in their respective senior competitions. The girls will play in the women’s A grade competition while the boys will play in the men’s B grade competition giving them a the opportunity to improve through a tougher competition and play together regularly as a representative squad. “The idea is to give them a bit more experience at a higher level,” president of Wodonga water polo Bevan Cox said. “Then when we go away to state and national competitions we are actually competitive. “It’s no good just training together for two weeks as a group of people then going away when we’re playing against Cronulla who’ve been training together for three months. “We thought we’d have a good group of young kids that we can select from that have been playing together for the duration of the season and then really attack these national and state tournaments.” Cox said that many of the A grade women’s teams were reasonably static and as a result the younger players didn’t always have the chance to play at that level unless someone was sick.

ATTACK: Under 16 boys’ player Troy Moreland takes aim at the goals and a shot at the O&M representative squad during the domestic competition on Saturday at the Albury pool. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON In the men’s competition he said the A grade was simply too strong so the B grade suited the new squad. The girl’s team will be known as OMG and the boys team will be known as the Bombers. The teams will face NSW and Victorian country clubs as well as national clubs. Even with limited training

in the past the representative teams have performed extremely well and Cox is confident there is enough talent for the new system to bring results. “We have a very strong association here,” he said. “We could have a state league one side and be very competitive in Victoria not too far down the track.”

Cox is aware that many of the big competitions take place over the winter months. And he says that the locals would be more competitive if they had a pool available 12 months of the year. “We could have a national league team out of here, no worries at all,” he said. “That’s our ultimate goal.”

RACING: Mark Jones at the Wodonga track on the weekend.

Jones set for season on home track From back page While in the UK Jones rode with the Newport team in South Wales competing in the national league and is hoping to return next year in the premier league. “I went pretty well … it was good,” he said. “Our team was top of the ladder … I started on a six point average and ended the season on a nine point average so I put three points on.” The points system is compiled from placings with four or five races a meeting, riders getting three points for a win. “Usually you get four races a meeting so the most you can get is 12 points,” Jones said. “I was averaging nine so that was pretty good.” With the season over Jones returned to the Border around a month ago and has settled back into work to save enough money to return for the next season. “I’ll be going up a division next year to the premier league in the second division so that should be a bit harder,” he said. He said the competition in the UK was tough with three divisions and around 15 teams in the second division whereas in Australia it is all individual racing. “Sometimes they struggle to field 16 riders over here,” he said. “It depends where you go … it is getting stronger in NSW, but the competition over there is where you’ve got to be, it’s professional and you get paid to race so it’s a good time.” Seven riders make up a team in the UK with averages taken from each rider contributing to the overall team score. Two riders from a team compete against two riders from another team to try to take maximum points. “Ideally you take first and second,” Jones said. “First is worth three points and second is worth two which gives you five points and only one to them … so that’s a big advantage.” Jones has enjoyed his time in the sport so far and is now looking forward to competing on the Diamond Park circuit. “I’ve never ridden this track,” he said. “It will be good to have a ride on it and I think we’ve got a few meetings lined up this summer. “I won’t have to travel two hours for a ride any more. “Hopefully the track will be good and we can get a few riders down here over summer time. “I’ll be hanging around here for the summer. “And if all goes to plan I’ll head back to the UK in about March for another season.”

Youngsters get that sense of community SPEED: Jason Bright shows good car speed across the top of the mountain at the Supercheap Autos Bathurst 1000 on Sunday.

Big effort by Jones team

By TREVOR JACKSON A MERCY dash back to Albury in a competitors’ plane almost provided the Brad Jones Racing team with a fairytale result at the biggest motor racing event on the Australian calendar. After putting the BOC Commodore into the wall in Friday’s session Jason Richards was up against all odds to even line up on the grid for the Supercheap Autos Bathurst 1000 on Sunday, but a huge effort from the team, and the use of Todd Kelly’s plane almost pulled off the impossible. “When we got that car back to the garage and started pulling it apart and looked at it we sort of made a plan that if we got the car finished for Sunday morning’s warm up that’d be great,” team coowner, Kim Jones said. “The guys knuckled in and got the thing ready by 10 o’clock on Saturday so we could do the practice session there … that was just a fantastic effort.” The team’s fabricators in Albury spent six hours making a chassis rail for the damaged car and after flying the parts back to Bathurst worked all night to get the car up and running. “When it was going there was absolutely nothing wrong with it,” Jones said. “It was fastest in the warm up (Sunday) by over a second … that’s just a credit to the whole team to be able to achieve that.” Once the race began Jones’ son, Andrew managed to take it up to 16th and the team was looking good but a small bolt came loose and cost them valuable time and as a result no chance of a podium finish. In fact the whole team performed well at the famed circuit with rookie, Karl Riendler holding sixth position when the final safety car left the track with just a handful of laps remaining. “It’s a bit of a pity because when the last safety car came out he got a bit shoved around by some of the more experienced people and dropped back a little bit,” Jones said. “But the indication’s there that he’s fast and the car’s fast and we’re moving forward as a whole team unit with the three cars.” But it was the performance of Jason Bright in the Trading Post car that had tongues wagging approaching the last section of the race. With a safety car coming out at a crucial time in the race teams refuelled but many were unsure whether they would be able to go the distance without having to conserve their fuel. Word across radio monitors showed that the top three cars were indeed in conservation mode, but Bright had enough fuel to fight to the end. Had no more safety car periods followed he was in the box seat to possibly take a race win but, as is the norm at Bathurst, the best laid plans don’t always eventuate, the final safety car providing slower laps for those with fuel consumption issues and thus enough left in their tanks to make the chequered flag, albeit only just. Even so, a fourth place at Bathurst is nothing to sneeze at and Bright was happy with the final result. “It was the best car I’ve ever had,” Bright said. Both Jones and Bright agreed they were looking good for the remainder of the season and were looking forward to the challenge ahead.

By TREVOR JACKSON ALBURY Junior Basketball has for many years offered children north of the border the opportunity to represent their region in the NSW Southern Junior League competition. But it’s more than just the sport they go away for, many forming bonds for life with children from other parts of the state. Sunday saw a good turnout of youngsters wishing to try out for the upcoming 2011 season, with hopefuls ranging from under 12s right up to under 18s. The competition takes in the southern region of NSW including teams from Canberra and according to president of AJB, Tony Hill, it is one of the toughest NSW-based competitions. “NSW Country Basketball has divided the state into four leagues,” Mr Hill said. “We have the Northern league, Central league, Western league and Southern league. “The Southern league is Albury, Illawarra, Canberra, Goulburn and places along the south coast. “We have three rounds, one in Canberra, one in Illawarra and one in Albury and in the middle we have the NSW Country Championships.” Mr Hill said one of the greatest experiences to come out of the representative program was the bonds they formed with other children throughout the course of the season. “When you talk to kids that have been through the rep program their memories aren’t so much of the games they’ve won but the people they meet from Illawarra and Gosford and Newcastle and all those points in between,” he said. “With the technological age they’re all on Facebook and Twitter and emailing each other.

FANTASTIC: Tony Hill at representative try-outs on Sunday for Albury Cougars basketball. “People that are 18 or 19, like my eldest kids, they’re still in touch with people they played against when they were 11 years old, and they’ve formed really good bonds, it’s fantastic. “Kids step over that line when the game’s over and they want to go and talk to their friends from Illawarra or Goulburn.” Mr Hill also noted the possibility to progress with their sport if they so desired, with the opportunity there to be noticed for a higher level of competition. “You also get children who make it into a team that goes to national championships in under 14s or they get spotted for Country

Cup trials which hopefully leads to state selection,” he said. “We’ve had numerous state kids over the years … it’s the next step, you play domestic, you then play for Albury and then look at NSW country if not NSW state. “Basketball is the reason they are going away and they enjoy their basketball and some of them develop good skills and get high representative honours but the rest are going away because they enjoy the game. “That’s what it’s all about … not everybody can go on and play for NSW but they have the experience of playing representative basketball for Albury.” Mr Hill said the program for juniors in Albury was a combination of a tight knit community and a passion for basketball. He said many parents also made the trips to assist in their child’s sporting endeavours. “We’ve always travelled together on buses for our Southern Junior League competitions,” he said. “We’re the only association in SJL, if not all of NSW who travel together. “Other places go off in cars and there’s not that community aspect. “I think there’s a real sense of ‘I belong’ with us. “We all wear the same uniform, the same polo shirt … we live together and eat together … I think that’s really important.” He said the bus trips brought a whole different aspect into the weekends away with the children understanding their place in the scheme of things. “Kids have that pecking order,” he said. “The under 12s sit at the front of the bus … by the time they get to under 18s they’ve got the back seat and they all can’t wait to get to the back seat because then they’re the big ones. “To me that’s just fantastic.”

First night at the velodrome and girls are looking at a chance to pursue title hopes By TREVOR JACKSON THERE was a real buzz in the air at the Lavington Panthers velodrome Monday night at the beginning of a new training season. A larger than normal turnout heralded the new season, possibly on the back of the world championships recently in Geelong and the top performances by Aussie cyclists at the Commonwealth Games. Either way riders turned up in droves to push themselves for a summer of cycling with a new enthusiasm for the sport. One particular rider provided some extra enthusiasm for the club with the possibility of forming a pursuit team for the young women competing at the velodrome. Rebecca Thomson and Sophia Drury have been regular members of the club but a recent addition to the ranks, Kirsty Deacon, has given the club reason to rejoice. In time trial training on Monday night both Rebecca and Sophia had shown a great deal of improvement with their times, and Kirsty was within a breath of them. Committee member, Rob Thomson explained that the sport of team pursuit required three riders of very similar calibre who could all perform well as a group, and with the addition of Kirsty the club may well be capable of taking out titles in the sport against other teams in Victoria. “Bec and Sophia were basically dead even and Kirsty was within one 200th of a second of Bec’s time,” Rob said. “In a team race it’s not how fast one rider is, that’s how we might be able to beat the Melbourne teams if we’re lucky. “I’ve seen it before where one girl blew the others straight out the back, so they lost … she spat them straight off. “In a pursuit you’ve got to be within a few millimetres of each other and you have to finish side by side … if you’re too fast for the others it’s a waste of time.

EXCITED: Lavington Panthers’ junior cyclists, Rebecca Thomson, Kirsty Deacon and Sophia Drury at the velodrome on Monday night. “That’s why we’re so excited because they’re all so close in times now, hopefully they’ll improve equally and if they do we’ve got a real shot.” Rob said the times the girls produced on Monday night were very competitive given the fact that the Lavington velodrome was slower than the board track in Melbourne, making the riders work harder and thus providing them with a possible advantage.

He added that it was a great opportunity to put the club’s name out there and also gave the girls an opportunity to be noticed by coaches in Melbourne. A lot of what happens will depend on timing. Kirsty has a personal commitment to triathlon, but if competition dates don’t clash there may well be some new names in cycling emerging from the Border region.

By TREVOR JACKSON SLIDING sideways at speed is all in a day’s work for Border speedway rider, Mark Jones. Having just returned from a six month stint in the UK he’s raced against some of the best up and coming sliders in the business. Sunday saw him put his talents on display at the Diamond Park track to the enjoyment of the Albury Wodonga Motorcycle Club riders and fans. Jones started racing bikes on the causeway track at about five years of age, beginning in the Pee Wee class and working his way up from there. “I started riding Pee Wee 50s and then moved up to KX 60s,” Jones told NewsWeekly. “I got into the junior speedway at about nine and I’ve just

done that ever since.” Jones said the junior speedway bikes were basically a cut down version of the senior machines, generally with a four stroke Honda motor, and could be ridden up to the age of 16. While in the junior class Jones won two Australian titles and three state titles and then stepped up to the seniors. “As soon as I turned 16 we did a lot of travelling to Mildura, Adelaide, Gosford and over to Shepparton and Broadford,” he said. “You’ve got to do a lot of travelling to get the competition, to where it’s happening at the time. “I finished fifth in the Australian under 21 titles twice and when I was 18 I made it into the Australian championships, the best 16 in Australia.” Continued page 46
