Lesson in fire safety KIDS at Wilcox Street Child Care Centre recently learnt about the importance of fire safety. Several fire fighters, including Daniel Castley, pictured, taught the young people what to do if a fire breaks out in their home and how to prevent fires from starting. They also had the chance to inspect the fire trucks and knock down cones with the high powered hoses. Fire fighters regularly visit Border schools to educate young people about fire.

Give her a break By BLAIR THOMSON THE BORDER community is being urged to lend a helping hand to Teena Conway. The Lavington resident lost her son, who would have turned 18 recently, to suicide several years ago. Her marriage and business fell apart following his death and she was declared bankrupt, and in the latest turn of bad luck, her uninsured car was firebombed in an apparently random arson attack. Police recovered a black lighter from the scene and are forensically

testing it. Ms Conway still owes about $20,000 on the destroyed Ford Territory, and is struggling to make ends meet as welfare is her only income. While she doesn’t want to ask for assistance, friends and family are encouraging people to rally around her. “She’s the last person that deserves this,” Jess Cameron said of the car fire. “I can’t imagine anyone having a grudge against her. “She’d give you the shirt off her back. “If anyone wants to contribute to a

new car or do something for her they should give me a call.” Ms Conway was woken by her son early last Thursday after he heard noises at the front of the house, with the car engulfed by flames. Two vehicles near the car were moved, and Ms Conway said it was lucky a gas hot water system nearby didn’t catch fire. Four people were in Ms Conway’s house at the time and children were asleep next door. “I’m numb, empty,” she told NewsWeekly on the morning of the fire.

“I don’t have insurance and I don’t have any money. “But I have a lot of good friends and family that are really supportive.” Ms Conway said police had told her accelerant appeared to have been used to light the fire. “It’s just mindless stupidity,” she said. “Wake up before you kill someone, because that’s what’s going to happen next. “If the three cars had have gone up, the house would have gone up. “It’s scary.”

A BMW was lit the same night in Wodonga, and police are investigating links between the fires and a spate of arson attacks in South Albury. Ms Conway said she didn’t want to ask for help, preferring to give people support rather than take it. But she said she her financial situation meant she didn’t have a choice. Ms Conway can be contacted on 0405 753 581 and Ms Cameron on 0423 131 945. Anyone with information should call Albury police on 6023 9299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

THE Plastic Fantastic initiative is now up and running at Wodonga’s waste transfer station and will save around 210 tonnes of plastics per year going to landfill. The initiative was born at the Kane Road facility with Wodonga Council staff thinking of ways to improve resource recovery. The aim of the project is to capture all plastics deposited at the waste transfer station and recycle them. Wodonga deputy mayor Councillor Edward Foulston said the bales of plastic waste are sold to Melbourne before being transported overseas where new technologies have been developed to recycle the components of the plastic into usable materials. “The reduction of waste to landfill is significant as approximately three tonnes of plastic was baled in the first week of operation,� he said. “This amount is expected to continue to grow and it is anticipated that some 210 tonnes of waste plastic per year will be recycled instead of going to landfill because of this incentive. This means approximately $23,000 per year will be saved at the facility in landfill disposal costs and Wodonga’s waste plastic will be recovered for use by future generations.� The total project cost was $140,000 with Sustainability Victoria matching the council’s

FANTASTIC‌ Councillor Edward Foulston said the the reduction of waste to landfill with the plastic fantastic initiative was significant. $70,000 contribution. The project involved extending an existing shed, purchasing compaction equipment, and lastly, recovering plastics from the waste stream. “Plastics that previously went to landfill can now be recovered for reprocessing,â€? Cr Foulston said. “These include outdoor furniture, children’s toys, chemical drums, and builder’s plastic. In fact, just about all plastics with much of it generated as a result of the e-Waste dismantling facility at the transfer station

By TREVOR JACKSON HOW many times have you looked for a car park, couldn’t find one so decided to use a loading zone or disabled spot? ‘I’ll just be a minute’, you think, to try to justify your decision. Maybe you run a red light because you’re in a rush and a camera snaps your indiscretion. And of course a fine is the result. Then you either forget to pay the fine or simply decide to screw it up and throw it in the bin. The problem is it all impacts on your driver’s license if these fines aren’t paid. On average 11,000 NSW drivers have their licence suspended every month because of unpaid fines. Now the NSW government has put in place a moratorium on enforcement fees for more than half a billion dollars in unpaid fines that will run until 31 July. This applies to all government fines such as traffic, parking, car registration, license renewals, court orders and those imposed by NSW police. Of course the easiest way to avoid having your license suspended is to pay your fines. From 1 July many of the overdue charges on fines will increase by up to $15 providing an added incentive to pay fines on time. Rules are put in place for a reason, even parking limits serve their purpose, allowing short-term shoppers to find a parking space in close proximity to where they need to go. The bottom line is the law is the law and must be obeyed or consequences follow. Without it our roads would be in a state of chaos. Nobody wants to lose their license over a parking ticket so if you have any outstanding fines now is the time to make enquiries and clear those debts before you’re disqualified from driving.

THE BORDER was shaken, but not damaged, by Tuesday night’s earthquake. The 5.5 magnitude earthquake was centred near Moe in south-east Victoria, with Albury Wodonga on the outskirts of where it could be felt. While hundreds, if not thousands of locals said they felt the quake, there were no reports of any damage in the area. Emergency services said they received dozens of phone calls following the 8.53pm event but didn’t have to respond to any incidents. State Water Corporation staff inspected the Hume Dam immediately after the quake and early Wednesday morning and found no damage. Upgrades to the dam were unaffected. Wayne Peck from the ES&S Seismology Research Centre said local homes built on low river sediment, rather than bedrock, would have been more affected by the quake.

“Areas in both Albury and Wodonga that are built on the low river sediment may have experienced some amplification of the ground shaking,� he said. “From an earthquake of this size we would expect aftershocks for a number of weeks, possibly out to a number of months. “The largest aftershock has been 3.3 on the Richter scale so far.� Mr Peck said the location of the earthquake meant it had caused little damage. “It’s the most significant earthquake for almost 100 years in Victoria,� he said. “If it had have been directly underneath Melbourne or Sydney the effects no doubt would have been more serious. “Because it occurred about 10km from the nearest town which didn’t have that many multistorey buildings that were likely to collapse, it didn’t cause that much damage.� Different measuring techniques rated the earthquake between 5.3 and 5.5 in magnitude.

DILIGENT… Wendy Dwyer and Leonie Goyne are more than happy to serve their community. yer said. “Generally we like to go together though; it is a nice chance to catch up.” Both sisters feel a real sense of satisfaction from volunteering. During the years, they have delivered meals to many people they know from their past including their primary school teacher.

Union steps in By BLAIR THOMSON ABIGROUP is currently auditing the payslips of workers involved in the Woomargama and Holbrook highway upgrades following accusations they are being underpaid. Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union organiser David Kelly said subcontractors working on the project, most of whom are based on the Border, were being “ripped-off”. He said workers hadn’t been paid superannuation for more than a year, were not being paid wages at the correct rate, were not being paid overtime and were missing out on long service leave and redundancy pay. He provided workers’ payslips as apparent proof. “What we’re concerned about is that regional workers in construction are being ripped off,” he said. “They’re not being paid their en-

titlements. “The politicians say it’s great that they’re bringing work to the area but they’re not getting paid correctly.” Abigroup, the main contractor for the project, met with workers on Wednesday morning and agreed to audit the payments made through subcontractors. It’s understood about 220 people are working on the project. Abigroup pays subcontractors, who in turn pay the workers. Member for Albury Greg Aplin said he was only made aware of the claims on Tuesday. “Action was taken as soon as these claims were raised, but I’m still concerned that people have left this for so long if in fact it has been an issue for some months,” he said. “The issue has been raised and is now being thoroughly investigated and will be resolved.”

Dog sniffs out dealer, users By BLAIR THOMSON A SNIFFER dog targeted drug dealers and users in pubs, central Albury and Albury train station last Saturday night in a secret operation. In the biggest bust, a 20-year-old Lavington man was charged with drug supply, possession and dealing with proceeds of crime after being caught with 6.2 grams of speed in several resealable plastic bags. He was taken into custody and will face court. A small amount of cannabis was found on a 39-year-old Lavington woman waiting to catch a train and a 49-year-old Sydney man was found with prescription drugs on a Sydneybound train shortly after. A 21-year-old Lake Albert man was found with a small amount of cannabis in Dean Street, a 41-yearold Albury man will face court for possessing a small amount of amphetamine and a 26-year-old man was found with a tablet, believed to be ecstasy, in a pub. Police keep sniffer dog operations secret prior to them happening, with 24 people searched. Inspector Tony Moodie said police considered the operation a success.

“Over time there’s been some discussion in the media about drugs on the streets,” he said. “From our intelligence gathering we believed it was time to get the drug dog down to see what was happening on the streets. “I wouldn’t say there was a large amount of drug activity in the CBD but the operation was worthwhile and will assist us in our future intelligence gathering for future operations.” A sniffer dog had been used in Albury last year and Insp Moodie wouldn’t say when they would be used next. “We don’t put it out there,” he said. “People need to be mindful they could be searched at any time where circumstances exist over the weekend. “They have that risk that they will be caught.” A dozen local police were involved in “Operation Takedown” and the three-year-old Labrador, named Bradshaw, was brought down from Sydney. “We will carry out more operations when there’s a need to,” Insp Moodie said.

Car fire mystery WODONGA police are still making enquiries after a black BMW was torched in Dalgleish Street last week. The burnt-out car was extinguished Thursday morning and it’s believed nobody has been charged or questioned over the incident. Police said enquiries had led them to someone in Wodonga, but wouldn’t elaborate.

FOLLOWING John Emmery’s outburst in a recent issue of NewsWeekly about the “outrageous” allowance increase for AlburyCity councillors ($420 per year or $8.00 per week), there needs to be a few questions asked about this so called Albury Citizens and Ratepayers movement. When was the Movement formed? Who was involved in its formation, and how was it formed - e.g. incorporated body? How many members does it have? How often do they meet? Does it have a constitution, and if so can you or I have a copy? How do you or I get to join it if I want to? How are executive positions elected? And how often? What is the connection between this movement, the “Save Our City” movement, and the Albury Concerned Citizens movement? Is this movement just a platform to get someone elected to council? When John Emmery makes a statement, is that the view of the committee, if there is one, or is this John’s view? I also ask John Emmery that if he does stand, and get elected, will he guarantee to forgo any allowance increases and donate them to charity? John’s statement about paying more to get better quality people is a joke, and needs to be treated as such. You be the judge - understanding that we get an allowance of $16,640 per annum now and you hadn’t thought about standing for council, would the extra $420 per annum make you change your mind?

Two of her grandkids have attended the school and Pat constantly recognises past students when she’s out and about. “Strangely enough, the kids don’t always recognises me without my hat and glasses on,� she said with a laugh. “Sometimes I’ve said ‘hello kids, how are you?’ and they’ve looked at me as to say, ‘who’s this lady, what’s she asking me that for?’ “I’d just like to thank St Monica’s and the kids. “They’ve all just been wonderful.� The students are also full of praise for Pat.


“I don’t really think of her as a lollipop lady because to me, she’s more of a friend,� Year Five student Abby Rothenberg said. “She’s really nice. “You never know when she’s sad or anything. “Every day when we cross the road we always tap on her lollipop sign, and no-one else lets us do that. “She has a laugh and we all do.� Mim Fleming said Pat was “the best lollipop lady we’ve ever had� and said students would always remember her.

BENEFITS… James Thompson says you can’t make everyone happy, but moving the cattle saleyards to Barnawartha is the right decision. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON

New saleyards set to go ahead MOVING Wodonga’s cattle saleyards to North Barnawartha will be a positive for the industry, according to Northern Victorian Livestock Exchange manager James Thompson. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal recently cleared the way for the new saleyards to be built after several years of planning and objections from angry livestock producers and agents. While objectors had argued the new saleyards would pose an environmental risk and increase travel times for some, Mr Thompson said an incident last year highlighted the need for change. “In about August last year we had an (effluent) spillage,” he said. “We used to pump out into the paddocks, which had been done for 30 years and we copped a couple of inches of rain one night, and it trickled over a bank used to hold the water. “The system’s just not really that well built to handle all the run-off ... everything from the whole site goes down

there and that’s the biggest problem.” Operator Regional Infrastructure was fined by the EPA following the incident. While Mr Thompson said it was only a “minor event” involving waste products that had gone through treatment, it highlights problems with the current saleyards. “People don’t like change and people come here and see their stock sold and bought but they don’t see the background of it,” he said. “They don’t see the issues of the effluent and how that’s handled, and that is probably the hardest thing. “There were plenty of issues behind the scenes that they don’t see. “It will definitely be a good move, it will work a lot better.” Mr Thompson said having roofs covering the new yards, soft flooring and a more efficient design were some of the advantages of the new site. Council must approve some changes and recommendations before giving the project the all clear, but that should pose

no problems. Warrick Margery’s property is located near the new site. He has been critical of the way Wodonga Council has handled the process and said he is “totally, totally devastated” the project will go ahead. “We still feel it’s in the wrong spot, too close to the floodplain and our residences,” he said. “The noise, smell, traffic and potential run-off and storm water are the biggest problems and they don’t realise how busy the road is now. “I’ve been saying this for the last five years and it’s absolutely frustrating, but you have to live with it.” Long-time council watcher Jean Whitla has also been critical of the development, arguing it poses a disease risk due to its proximity to the Murray River in a recent open letter to council. A rally against the new saleyards, held at Woodland Grove last year, attracted about 300 livestock producers, agents and business owners.



Plastic Fantastic Wodonga’s Waste Transfer Station has given local residents another reason to ensure they sort their load - the Plastic Fantastic initiative. A new plastic compacting machine is now in operation at the Kane Rd facility and will save around 210 tonnes of plastics per year from going to landfill.

What goes in:

This means approximately $23,000 per year will be saved at the facility in landfill disposal costs. Plastics that can be recycled include: ‡ Outdoor furniture; ‡ Children’s toys and clamshaped swimming pools; ‡ Chemical drums; ‡ Builder’s plastic; ‡ Old television and computer casing; and ‡ Plastic bottles.

In fact, just about all plastics can be compacted down and turned into bales that are sold for re-use for future generations. The total project cost was $140,000 with Sustainability Victoria matching the council’s $70,000 contribution. For more information, please phone the transfer station on (02) 6022 9365.

What comes out:


That is fantastic recycling – huge environmental win

The finest frames on the Border FINER Frames is a family business that has been operating in Wodonga for around seven years. The business was established from scratch by the Peter & Wendy Fincher in 2005 and sold after five years of operation. At that time Wendy Fincher continued to work for the new owner and when he decided it was time to move on her and her two daughters, Cassie Piltz and Amy Manns once again took control of the business. Since that time, about four months ago, the shop has been re-modelled with fresh ideas from Cassie and Amy and the experience of Wendy. Finer Frames concentrates on the framing of not just photos but all types of memorabilia as well. They print on both photo and canvas mediums and offer block-mounting of photos and jigsaw puzzles, all done on solid MDF boards and coated with a matte finish to allow ease of cleaning. They provide clear perspex boxing for such items as wedding bouquets and box frames for medals or trophies, or virtually anything else the customer might desire. Cassie and Amy also offer baby hands and feet plaster casting in box frames and a service for the framing of needlework. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly team and Wendy said her passion for the industry came from customer feedback. “It’s the satisfaction of seeing the look on a customer’s face when they pick up the final product,” she said.

“A lot of people can’t visualise what it’s going to look like when it’s finished and when they come in they’re just over the moon about it.” Wendy said they concentrated on quality products including timber framing, quality matte boards and acid-free boards. She said they had built up a good reputation in the region for their needlework framing. “We were taught that when you’re framing any of the needlework you have to pin and lace,” she said. “You’re not supposed to use glues, tapes or anything like that. We do it the traditional way. “Because of the amount of time it takes people to do the needlework they need to be framed properly so they last. It could take up to three hours to do one job, depending on the size so a lot of effort goes into it, but it is the proper way of doing it.” Wendy said one of the more interesting jobs she’d undertaken was a propeller from a crashed Tiger Moth plane. “The person who was in the plane wanted the propeller framed,” she said. “It wasn’t the whole propeller … it was broken but that was an interesting one.” Wendy said the canvas prints were proving very popular for both portrait and landscape photography, adding an extra depth not normally associated with standard print photos. So be sure to drop into Finer Frames for your next framing job.

MASSIVE RIDE… Daniel Seehusen, Aaron Turner, John Clark and Tim Holman have ridden across 27 countries in the name of charity. Picture: BLAIR THOMSON Advertisement

THE LONG distance bike ride has become a popular way to raise money in recent years, with many groups stopping on the Border due to its location between Sydney and Melbourne. But the four cyclists who pulled into Albury last Friday are taking the idea to the extreme. Daniel Seehusen, Aaron Turner, John Clark and Tim Holman have pedalled close to 24,000km on their journey from London to Melbourne over the past 14 months. Now on the final leg, they’re looking forward to finishing the epic trip and seeing what the future brings. “We were living in London and ran out of money, and had an idea from different adventure books to do an adventure ourselves,” Daniel explained. “The opportunity came and our visas ran out, so this was a good way to get home without flying. “We were in no rush to get home and got to see the world along the way.” The group has raised around $20,000 for World Vision’s child rescue program, which rehabilitates child trafficking victims and helps protect those in danger. After cycling through 27 countries on three continents, adjusting to life at home will be a little tough. “It will definitely be hard to adjust to staying in one place,” Tim said. “We’re all ready to come home now. “It’s been a great trip for all of us and we’ve all taken a lot out of it but are ready to move on with the next phase of our lives. “Towards the end of any sort of trip I think you tend to get itchy feet looking forward to the next step.” Looking only a week or two into the future helped make the sheer scale of the trip a little less daunting. Despite the length of the trip, the four riders encountered only minor problems and are all still using their original bikes. They hope to turn footage of the trip into a TV documentary.

HYPOTHETICAL is coming to the Border as part of Murray Now’s third State of the Region Event and will explore the controversial theme of population explosion. The program will be fronted by respected journalist Peter Couchman whose reputation was forged on the ABC current affairs program This Day Tonight and the highly acclaimed Four Corners. Mr Couchman and a panel of eight local and national experts will highlight the issues that regional Australia faces with skill shortages, infrastructure needs, decentralisation and food and water security, and the solutions. Panellists will include Peter Walsh, Minister for Agriculture, Food Security and Water and ABC’s renowned science journalist and broadcaster Robin Williams. “The diversity of the eight panellists is extraordinary and the topic will most certainly have audience members firmly glued to their seats,” Murray Now’s Nicole Doughty said. “The audience will be taken on a thought provoking journey and will come away from the evening enlightened about the issues and the solutions that regional and rural Australia is facing.” Hypothetical will be held at the Albury Entertainment Centre in the main auditorium on Friday 13 July at 8pm. $10 from each ticket sold will go to the Albury Wodonga Patient and Carer Accommodation Centre Appeal.

Cole to light up crowd By BLAIR THOMSON COUNTRY music sensation Beccy Cole says she often forgets how much she enjoys performing live. The Central Coast resident, who will play at the Commercial Club next Friday, 29 June, said the commercial side of the music industry sometimes outweighed her creative side. “I’m in the business side as well because I manage myself and do marketing and publicity and bookings, but what I love is getting on stage and entertaining a crowd,” she told NewsWeekly. “Sometimes I get so caught up in everything else that I forget that I do that, but it’s just so much fun. “I call it ‘free drugging’; you get up there and you get a free high.” Cole can’t pinpoint the exact moment when she took a liking to country music, but said it had always been in the family. She started performing with her mother as a teenager. “My mum’s a country singer,” she explained. “When I was a really little kid I thought everyone’s mum did that for a living. “I guess I just wanted to have a crack.” She first jumped on stage at about 14 and hasn’t looked back. “I performed with my mum until I got itchy feet and branched out to see what else I could do. “It’s a huge difference these days. “I was just starting out, finding my feet and I was pretty shy and that kinda stuff but these days its still my passion.” Cole, who lists Casey Chambers and Adam Harvey as friends and neighbours, recently won

her ninth Golden Guitar award in Tamworth. “I thought my Golden Guitar winning days might have been behind me,” she said. “My goal now is longevity; I want to stick with it and do it for as long as I possibly can.” After 20-odd years of touring, Cole says she knows what gets audiences fired up in each town she visits. “They’re fun in Albury Wodonga,” she said. “They know how to have a good time and love their country music. “It’s almost like the job’s half done before I get there.” Cole will perform with her live band and two artists in support slots. “It’s songs predominantly from my new album Songs & Pictures which came out last year and songs that we get a lot of requests for,” she said. “We’ve got a couple of really great support acts in Lyn Bowtell, who is also part of my band and Catherine Britt, who is just an amazing songwriter. “She spent six years in Nashville, touring with people like Alan Jackson and did a duet with Elton John. “She did so well but got so homesick and asked if I’d take her out on tour, and I said ‘absolutely’. “So we’re all really looking forward to it.” Beccy Cole performs at the Commercial Club on Friday 29 June.

Hits from the 60’s By BLAIR THOMSON

VETERAN musician and actor Jon English returns to the Border next Saturday following the success of The Rock Show last year. English will perform his new creation, Rock Revolution, at the Albury Entertainment Centre. A cast of eight young musicians will help him belt out tunes from the 60’s and 70’s by bands like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. “I am the quintessential Baby Boomer … me and several billion others,” he told NewsWeekly. “It was a massive revolution in its own way. “Falling in love, falling out of love, figuring out whether you’re gay or not, that whole angst period is all reflected in the music and the bands that we were following. “It’s certainly one of the most innovative and diverse periods in music, at least in my lifetime.” The 63-year-old musician was a teenager in the 1960’s, and like many of his generation, he was caught in the hype surrounding The Beatles when their new musical style hit the airwaves. He believes modern music is currently sitting at low point, and the world is just waiting for the next Beatles or Nirvana to break through and shake things up. “Rock Revolution basically goes under the principle that music changes every 15 to 20 years and something new comes along, something non-manufactured, something non-marketed” he said. “That usually happens in the most obscure place you can possibly think of, like Memphis Tennessee, Liverpool in England, or Seattle Washington. “These new things come through and people pick up the ball and run with it and it seems to revolve around its own axis. “As soon as it becomes self indulgent, and more fashion conscious than actual musical content conscious, or social conscious, it loses impetus and basically self destructs. “And that just a theory of mine but it’s been going that way during my lifespan, it’s happened three or four times.” But what that next music revolution may be remains a mystery. “If I can answer what’s next, I’d be a millionaire,” English said with a laugh. “It will probably be in Iceland or somewhere like that, somewhere really weird. “It could be in Brisbane, it does work like that.

Charlize Theron Kristen Stewart Chris Hemsworth



WAITING… Jon English hopes another music revolution will hit the airwaves shortly. “At the moment we seem to be looking at what they look like, and dance steps and hairstyle as opposed to what they’re actually doing, everyone seems to be copying everyone else.” While he is looking forward to what the future may hold, English has never been one to plan too far ahead. “I just kinda go book myself a year out in advance and that’s it,” he said. “There’s a couple of theatre things they’re talking to me about … there’s a whole lot of things I’ve got to do before I turn my toes up and die. “Something always comes up and you’ve just got to go with the flow “If you plan too much, prepare to be disappointed, or surprised.”

Box office

English has experienced success in many forms during his career, including as Judas Iscariot in Jesus Christ Superstar, in various television shows, and in The Rock Show. “If Rock Revolution is anything like The Rock Show, it will be a fantastic response,” he said. “It surprised me how well The Rock Show went over, it just struck the right chord with people. “I think this is funny and I think this will work, and I wonder if it will ... you just never know.” Jon English performs Rock Revolution at the Albury Entertainment Centre next Saturday (30 June).

Sandler sticks closely to the script By BLAIR THOMSON MOVIE: That’s My Boy (MA15+) DURATION: 114 minutes ANYONE who watches an Adam Sandler film can be pretty certain of what they’re going to get: whiny, exaggerated New Yorker accents, broad comedy, and man-child antics. A few of Sandler’s flicks have deviated from this formula, but most stick very closely to these themes. Critics love to pan his films, and it’s often deserved; Jack and Jill, for example, is worth it’s three percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But this latest comedy isn’t as bad as expected.

It’s not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s not awful. Sandler stars as Donny Berger, whose sole claim to fame was getting his teacher pregnant when he was in high school. Nearly 30 years and thousands of cans of beer later, the D-Grade celebrity still acts like the 12-year-old boy who hooked up with his teacher. His estranged love child (Andy Samberg), on the other hand, is kicking goals as a straight-laced businessman and is days away from marrying his fiance. Donny named his son Han Solo, which he changed to Todd Petersen be-

fore cutting off all contact with his father and telling those close to him that his parents died in an explosion. Owing $43,000 in unpaid taxes, Donny decides to reunite with his son in a money-grabbing scheme and they eventually become close. There’s crude humour throughout, but it’s often not witty or edgy enough. There are some genuinely hilarious scenes, but the jokes only push the funny button every so often. Younger audiences will probably find this to be pretty good, but most people will probably rate this somewhere between average and OK.

SHANNON Noll returns to the Border for a gig at the Albury Entertainment Centre tonight (Friday). The Australian Idol runner-up, best known for songs What About Me, Shine and Lift, will perform all of his hits and new tracks from last year’s release, A Million Suns. Noll, 36, grew up in the small town of Condobolin in NSW and has carved out a career in music since appearing on Idol in 2003. While interest has waned in most people who featured on the now-defunct reality show, Noll has managed to stay in the spotlight. With the ten year anniversary of Idol approaching, Noll believes he still has a few years left in the music industry. “For now I cant imagine doing anything else,” he said prior to the release of A Million Suns. “This is what I am good at and I am really excited to be on a new label, and the reaction so far to the new single has been great. “But who knows what will happen in the future, for now I’m just going to keep doing it!” Noll has been a regular visit to the area, with his last gig here in August 2011. His latest album features rock-heavy songs, including single Switch Me On. Tickets to the show cost $60. For more information contact the venue on 6051 3030.

BEPREPARED Memories to last forever FUNERALS FEATURE

of Health Victoria having oversight of cemetery trusts across the state. The Wodonga trust currently consists of a chairman and four trust members. The trust encourages local participation of members of the community with basic business skills to join the local trust. “The volunteers are representatives of the community,” trust secretary Lia Carle said. “A long time ago they had a representative from each church involved but now anyone with suitable skills can apply.” All sites at the cemetery are held in perpetuity and with records going back to 1861 the trust is often called upon to locate a relative’s resting place as part of genealogy projects, hence the value of having a lasting memorial like those available at the Wodonga cemetery. While it may seem expensive to bury a loved one Mr Cummins said the work continued on the burial site long after the funeral service was over. “We have to maintain everything here for ever and a day,” he said. “That’s where the costs come in for the burials and internment of ashes. Some people might think it’s expensive but they don’t realise once they’ve bought the plot we have to maintain the grounds and the position forever. “We put as much money as we can back into the cemetery itself.”

A lasting memorial and tribute to a loved one. The Wodonga Cemetery is a place where a permanent marker of a life lived can be placed and where family, friends and future generations can come to remember and pay respect. Wodonga Cemetery provides a wide range of options to choose from for both ashes and burials, in an attractive setting with Monumental, Lawn and Rose Garden sections available as well as the option of prepaid reservations for future interments.

Insurance to cover your final costs FUNERAL insurance is a product many of us overlook. We insure our cars, our homes and even our mobile phones but often ignore the option of funeral insurance as if it’s a taboo topic. But now there are more options than ever and people are more willing to discuss their own final resting place and associated costs. Taking out funeral insurance can help provide peace of mind to loved ones in the case of death. While weekly budgets allow for every-day running of home and living finances it’s worth a look into what funeral insurance costs, which is often less than you might expect.

Considering some funerals could cost well into the thousands of dollars it’s well worth the effort. An added advantage of having funeral cover is it leaves your loved ones with more expendable cash at the time of your funeral to ensure a suitable send-off and leaves less of a burden in the long term. In most cases funeral insurance policies are paid quickly and give your family the money they need when they need it. In general the total cost of the funeral is covered by the insurance policy from the casket to the catering requirements but with so many options available be sure to research the subject to compare rates, payments op-

tions and features that best suit your needs. Some life insurance policies may include funeral insurance to provide an immediate lump sum payable to your family in the event of your death so ask your insurer what they can offer if you have a current policy in place. Be sure to ask questions such as length of time before payment, cover for accidental death, age and health requirements or any other query you may have. While you want to take your family’s peace of mind into account you also want to ensure they won’t be burdened or unnecessarily stressed by the fine print of an insurance policy.

WODONGA cemetery is a place where a loved one can be interred and a memorial can be placed as an enduring tribute to the life of the one who has passed away. It provides a tangible reminder of a life lived and a point of focus for the bereaved. There is a wide choice of sites for the bereaved to choose from such as the monumental, lawn, rose gardens, memorial garden and walls and all enquiries are welcome whether for burial or placement of ashes. The Wodonga cemetery is administered by the Wodonga Cemetery Trust which was established in 1861 with the land being owned by the crown and managed by the trust for the use of the general public. The trust is reliant upon a volunteer base drawn from the local community to administer the affairs associated with the cemetery and is an integral part of our society. “The general idea of the trustees is to have oversight of everything that goes on in the cemetery as far as the financial returns, general administration of the cemetery, book keeping, and ensuring maintenance is being carried out,” trust chairman Allen Cummins said. “All the legal paper work that is involved with burials and placement of ashes is kept on file forever. Our records started in 1861 so we’re probably one of the oldest groups in Wodonga, even older than council.” Trust members are appointed by the Governor in Council with Department

Market leaders now on both sides of the border LESTER & Son funeral directors is one of the oldest and most respected businesses on the Border. It has been operating continuously in Albury since 1907 and has now expanded, opening a new office at 102 Hume St Wodonga. This makes them the only funeral service that is represented in both Albury and Wodonga. Wodonga families can now expect the same high level of professional service as offered at the Albury office, at a reasonable price on which Lester & Son has earned its trusted reputation. The business is locally owned and operated by Andrew and Pauline Harbick and Darren and Julie Eddy and is a market leader in the field. Members of the public are invited to call to discuss their funeral requirements and obtain a free information kit and a no obligation estimate of expenses. “When arranging a funeral you should always obtain at least two quotes to ensure you receive good value for money,” Mr Harbick said. “Our experience in the funeral industry has taught us the importance of providing a quality, professional service at a competitive price and we are committed

A unique tribute to your loved ones FUNERAL tribute videos have become a popular way to remember lost loves ones. Video tributes are a unique and beautiful way to provide a touch of personalisation to the memorial service. Most videos will feature the favourite songs of those who have passed away, with images, video, titles and captions from throughout their lives. They are usually played at the memorial service or other gatherings in the days following death, providing a virtual trip down memory lane. One person can coordinate the entire effort or it can be collaborative, with everyone offering favourite photos for the video. Video tributes can be made several different ways, including: - At home using computer software. Depending on how comfortable you are using this type of technology, you can do the entire thing yourself. Modern computers usually come with simple video editing software like Windows Movie Maker. For some people, the act of sorting through all the photographs and scanning them is ca-

thartic; for others, it is too much to consider during the difficult grieving period. - Through the funeral home. More and more funeral homes are offering video options as part of their memorial packages. These have the benefit of being largely hands-off. You simply provide a stack of favourite photographs, make a few song and background picture selections, and let the funeral director and his or her team do the rest. They usually provide a copy of the slideshow for you to take home and may even host it on their website. - Via a third-party specialty provider. Some companies provide video tribute services to the newly bereaved via an online sales platform that you can access right from home. Others might be referred to you as a local company. These companies are prepared to help you sort through your images to find the best ones, and are able to meet the fast turnaround time necessary in the funeral industry.

Clinic for juniors By TREVOR JACKSON JUNIOR soccer players on the Border will have the opportunity to hone their skills when a Coerver coaching clinic comes to town in the July school holidays. Albury United soccer club will be hosting the clinic, numbers permitting, from Monday 2 to Wednesday 4 July, 9am till 12 at Jelbart Park West for boys and girls aged 4-15 years. Coerver coaching is a method inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver specifically targeting young children and has become a global teaching system. Coerver accredited coaches will be traveling from Canberra to conduct the three day clinic and Albury United club president Chris Rochford urged young soccer players to register and take advantage of the clinic. “It is a great opportunity for the Border’s young players to develop their skill levels in co-ordination, balance, ball control and sportsmanship,” he said. Mr Rochford said the Coerver system had proven itself world wide and in the Canberra region. “Woden Valley came down and recently played our senior ladies and men and they run the Coerver program through their whole club,” he said. “Talking to their coaches, they’re the most successful junior club in their region.” Mr Rochford said the clinics were well attended in the major cities but this was the first time Border youngsters would have the chance to participate without the travel involved. “These courses are held every school holidays in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne,” he said. “These guys run the clinics on the coast and they’ll get 200 kids turn up. Now we’ve got the opportunity to get these guys to come to the Border so hopefully we can get everyone jumping

SKILLS… Junior soccer players, Shannon Greschke, 10, Brea Quinlivan, 12, Emily Milburn, 10 and Harrison meredith, 7, will have the chance to participate in a world-renowned coaching system when the Coerver coaching clinic visits the Border in the school holidays. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON on board and get it happening.” Mr Rochford stressed that numbers registering would ultimately decide if the clinics would go ahead. “We’re aiming for around 30 kids,” he said. “If we can get the numbers they’ll come down; if we don’t they won’t. But if it doesn’t happen this year we’ll keep pushing to try to get it here next year.” The clinic will cost $149 which in-

cludes nine hours of coaching spread over the three days, Coerver coaching climacool shirt, Coerver coaching certificate, adidas soccer ball and a Coerver home training program. To register for the clinic contact Chris Rochford on 0400 011 766 or Coerver ACT via email at admin@coerveract. com or telephone 0421 907 788. Applications close 29 June.

By TREVOR JACKSON JUNIOR Border soccer player Chelsea Blissett has been rewarded for her effort with a position in the NSW primary school state team. As part of the McKillop football squad Chelsea recently competed in a three-day tournament held at Miranda where her team finished runners-up. Having previously played as a defensive left-back Chelsea competed as a mid-fielder in the tournament and was noticed for her ball control and overall fitness. Chelsea’s father Clayton said he was very pleased with her selection. “I’m super-proud,” he said. “Her fitness is probably one of her best qualities … she’s a state level track and field athlete as well. “Her passing and ball play was quite exceptional in that tournament, being able to find team mates, pass the

ball and split defenders - she was a real stand-out in that department.” Chelsea will now attend a training camp in Sydney before heading to the Top End to compete in a national tournament in Darwin in September. Of course the honour comes at a high cost financially but Clayton said it was worth every cent. “I’m hoping it’s not a once-in-alifetime experience,” he said. “She’s done a lot of work over the summer and all the extra training she’s been doing has really helped her ball control and game play skills and she’s developed into a really nice mid-fielder now. “She’s actually highly regarded in NSW and Victoria for her abilities and she’s always wanting to train and play - she loves it. “That’s the biggest thing. It’s never a chore for her.”

STATE SELECTION… Chelsea Blissett is happy to be part of the NSW State primary school soccer team. Picture: TREVOR JACKSON

Down but not out BEECHWORTH boxer Callan Orchard has returned to the Border after being stopped with 20 seconds remaining in the final round of his fight with Queensland boxer Phillip Maley. Orchard’s trainer John McCubbin said he threw in the towel after a strong barrage from Orchard’s opponent rocked his fighter. “That’s the first time I’ve ever thrown the towel in,” McCubbin said. “You could tell by Cal’s eyes he’d been hurt and I wasn’t going to let him get hurt for a couple of dollars.” McCubbin said Orchard appeared to be winning for the majority of the fight but he said a strong punch to the head

followed by a punishing body blow was enough for him to retire the young fighter. But he said all was not lost with Orchard, only just on the edge of the lightheavyweight division, now looking at the possibility of dropping a weight division. “Everything was going all right in the fight but Maley’s strength was just too much,” he said. “Cal fought well but he’s just not strong enough yet and he’s a bit shorter than some of the other fighters. I think the middle-weight division might suit his body structure better.”

Half-time reports are in: cream is rising to the top Simon

Says with SIMON CORR WE ARE ofďŹ cially halfway through the Ovens and Murray season. When I was at school the middle of the of the year represented a good time for teachers to pass on their opinions of a student via a school report. The following report-card-style comments are how I have assessed each clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance thus far. ALBURY AThe Tigers have lapsed in concentration a couple of times this year which has resulted in unlikely losses to Myrtleford and the Raiders. However in general they have been every bit the dominant side we have grown accustomed to seeing over the last four seasons. Clearly the most potent scoring side in the competition, the Tigers have added a ďŹ&#x201A;eet-footed bunch of youngsters to their mix to compliment their stellar midďŹ eld. COROWA RUTHERGLEN DJust as my teacher once wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not living up to expectationsâ&#x20AC;? the same needs to be said about Corowa. With some well-credentialed recruits and an array of enthusiastic youngsters I deďŹ nitely thought the Rooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s would be capable of competing for a ďŹ nals position, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to have gelled and as many of the teams have gone up a level, Corowa appears to have stagnated. LAVINGTON C+ Admittedly the Panthers have only dropped three games this season and a C+ may appear a bit rough. Those losses however to the two Wang sides and a woeful performance against Albury mean the Panthers are tracking a fair bit behind last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance at the same stage. All punters would have had Lavvy ďŹ nishing top three at the start of the year but a much improved effort would be required to achieve that.

MYRTLEFORD D The Saints look to have gone backwards a bit this year. They have some big scalps but have been disappointing in the games they should have won. In Stan Magroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal year at the helm the club was targeting ďŹ nals. This will not happen. NORTH ALBURY C The Hoppers have been OK this year. They were the most inactive club during the recruiting season and have managed to turn at the halfway mark still in ďŹ nals contention. They have a very important month coming up with winnable games against Wodonga, Wangaratta and Lavington.

WANGARATTA COn paper the Magpies are very impressive but their efforts in the ďŹ rst half are very confusing. Back to back wins against fellow ďŹ nals aspirants in the Raiders and Lavington made me stand up and take notice, but it took another ďŹ ve weeks before they ďŹ nally notched up their third win. Too inconsistent for such a promising side.

WANGARATTA ROVERS AThe Rovers have surprised everyone this season with a meteoric climb up the ladder. They are very ďŹ t and well-drilled and the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resurrection has been pleasing to all. A key forward is the only thing that has hampered their progress, but they get that in round 12 in the form of AFL hard-man Barry Hall. Very pleasing effort so far.

Local Sport State cycling comes to the Border By TREVOR JACKSON JUNIOR cycling will be highlighted this week on the Border when Cycling Victoria hosts its Victorian School Cycling Championships in Albury. Mountain bikers will compete at Nail Can Hill on Sunday 24 June while road cyclists will compete at Noreuil Park on Tuesday 26 June. Albury council’s event officer Renate Griese said it was a great opportunity for the Border region to showcase its ability to host major cycling events to the state body through close liaison with Lavington Panthers Cycling Club (LPCC) and the Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers (AWMTB). “We think it’s really good for Albury and the Border to have Cycling Victoria come and present their cycling schools championship here,” she said. “We’re in a perfect spot for cycling for mountain biking, track and road so hopefully we can work with them for bigger and greater events in years to come.” LPCC secretary Russell Smith said it was the perfect opportunity for cy-

clists not currently competing to come and try the sport of road cycling at a great venue. “It’s a state level event but it’s a school event which is separate from the licensed competitions, so it encourages people who don’t have a license to become involved,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll enjoy that and take it further from there. “The venue here at Noreuil Park is fantastic. We’ve held a few criteriums here over the years and you have good viewing for spectators and a few challenges for competitors with slow bends, sharp bends, a bit of a climb, a hair-pin and a nice long hill coming down to the finishing straight.” A spokesman from AWMTB Daniel Wayenberg said the Nail Can Hill venue would throw up a few challenges for mountain bike riders but would be achievable even for the youngest in the field. He said it was a huge event for the Border club. “The course that we’ve set down is not going to be an overly huge chal-

both will have the chance to progress through to state finals later in the year to be held at Geelong and Melbourne. For further information go to Lavington Panthers Cycling Club or Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers websites.

Strategy and consolidation By TREVOR JACKSON

CONSOLIDATE… Fabian Coulthard opted to consolidate after Saturday’s disappointing result to hold on to ninth position in the driver’s championship.

BRAD Jones Racing’s Fabian Coulthard and Jason Bright have remained in the top 10 in the V8 Supercar drivers’ championship after some mixed results in Darwin on the weekend. After a lack-lustre race on Saturday both drivers were eager to improve in Sunday’s outing. A hiccup from Bright off the line saw him serve a 10 second pit lane penalty for jumping the start and a rubbing tyre pushed him to the back of the field. But in a strategic move Bright opted for just two pit stops and clawed his way back up to 10th position. But his soft tyres were suffering from the long

stint and a lack of grip saw him drop back to finish in 13th and hold on to 10th spot in the championship. “The way that safety car fell meant a lot of guys went for the three-stop option with race strategy,” he said. “We gained a lot of places by staying on the two-stop option but it was never going to get us from last to first. We didn’t have anything left by the time the three-stoppers caught us. All in all we still got some points out of it so it wasn’t such a bad day.” Coulthard’s race was highlighted by many battles with championship contender Will Davison that would see him finish in fifth place. “We had a good battle with Will Davison for the first two stints,”

Coulthard said. “We were side-by-side for three corners and didn’t touch. That’s what I call good, clean racing; respect for one another. “We had pretty good pace on the soft tyre … we knew we were going to spend most of our time on the softs so we tuned the car for that. The big thing for us was to consolidate after (Saturday’s) bad result and get a good accumulation of points and we achieved that. We could have gone for the risky strategy but from where we started it wasn’t worth the gamble. We’re still in single figures in the championship, which is the aim.” The championship now heads to Townsville from 6-8 July.
