Together like a horse and carriage THEY may have changed their name, but the aim remains the same. Riding Develops Abilities Victoria is the new name for RDAV

and does away with the word disabled. “In these times it seems more appropriate,” Bendigo RDA secretary Anne Prime said.

“It was voted in by our members in June. “Another great venture out here that has turned in to a success story is our carriage-driving program.

The group now has two horses and carriages working and a full book of 12 clients. “There is also a waiting list,” Anne said.

A NEW $25 million medical accommodation precinct in North Bendigo will help attract the best of the state’s young doctors and medical staff, according to Bendigo Health chief executive officer John Mulder. “This will put Bendigo right at the top of the tree in terms of capacity to attract young, quality junior doctors to this organisation,” he said at the Atkins Street site on Wednesday morning. “We’re trying to increase the

number of young doctors trained and living in the area. “And this will certainly help our cause in that.” The new complex, next door to the North Bendigo football ground, will provide 120 one and two bedroom units. Construction is expected to begin at the end of the year, and be completed either at the end of 2012, or early 2013.

Encore provides fresh, great tasting pizza & pasta with quality ingredients at a fantastic price. At Encore we challenge the perception that quality pizza must be an expensive purchase only delivered by boutique restaurants. We offer a variety of fresh, premium toppings including breast chicken & rindless bacon in tasty combinations the whole family can afford to enjoy! Our dough and toppings are prepared daily in store, ensuring that our pizzas are always delicious!

Presently, Bendigo Health leases in excess of 120 residential properties around the city. “At the moment we bring doctors to Bendigo and place them in isolation really,” Mr Mulder said. “It’s a great community project considering the current shortage of housing in Bendigo.” Located 700 metres from Bendigo Health, Mr Mulder expected

the complex’s connecting roads wouldn’t be flooded by increased traffic. “Our doctors will walk to work,” he said. “It’s a stone’s throw away from Bendigo’s CBD. “Residents will be able to leave their car at home and enjoy the benefits and ease of commuting that inner-city living offers.”

The first community engagement session was held this week. Mr Mulder is confident everyone will win. “This can only be good for the local community around here,” he said. However, Haven chief executive officer Ken Marchingo said the new complex will not improve Bendigo’s rental woes.

High tea for two TO celebrate the achievements and efforts of coordinators, home tutors, parents, carers and children in the HIPPY program (Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters) a HIPPY High Tea was held at Long Gully Neighbourhood Centre on Tuesday for National HIPPY Week. The free, two-year home-

based early childhood enrichment program provides fun and stimulating learning experiences and activities. Operated by St Luke’s Anglicare, the program uses a trained home tutor to support parents with home visits to explain and demonstrate activities for both parent and child, which enhances

school readiness and family relationships. “These parents are so dedicated, and really intent on doing the best for their children so it was a pleasure to honour them today,” event coordinator Heather Brown said. Call Heather on 5430 1200 for more information.

DO you think Bendigo could support another market? One Hargreaves Mall trader has suggested it may be a way of regenerating business in the troubled shopping strip. Steve Gray of Toasties Australia is concerned the mall is continuing to decline. “I want to sound positive but watching businesses close is very disheartening,” he said. “The mall is dying and that will ultimately affect all businesses in the CBD. You should walk through the mall some mornings, it is like a ghost town,” he said. The closure of further stores over the last few weeks has prompted Steve to reignite the mall issues by suggesting the introduction of a market. Steve said mall traders are still feeling the effects of the lengthy rebuilding process and want to see it busy again. “It could be a farmers’ and craft market to run on alternate weeks to the existing Bendigo Community Farmers’ Market,” he said. “Bendigo and district has a wealth of great producers out there. As a mall trader and food vendor, I would love to see it all happening in our mall on a regular basis”.

CFA report welcomed

VOLUNTEER firefighters across the Goldfields have welcomed the release of the report into the Country Fire Authority. “The Association will be keen to prepare a report for our members about what it will mean,” president of Victorian Fire Brigade Volunteers District 2 Peter Thompson said yesterday. “We are very much in favour that what is implemented has to be

Bendigo still a drawcard for the relatives By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

BENDIGO is still dancing with its sister, in tourism terms, but there are signs that the city may be growing towards a real date. Tourism Research Australia’s new survey of visitors to the Goldfields found that visiting friends and family still tops the list of reasons to come to Bendigo. “Visitors to Bendigo stated the single-most important reason for choosing to visit was to visit friends or relatives with 18 per cent visiting, relatives and 11 per cent visiting friends,” the report said. In contrast the singlemost important reason for visiting Ballarat was to visit specific attractions. The new report was based on surveys conducted in March and April this year, and compared with “benchmarks” from across Australia. It is part of ongoing research about who travels where, and why. “I’m encouraged by the VFR (visit friends and relatives) numbers in that they have been slowly coming down recently,” CEO of Bendigo Trust Tom Seddon said. “Bendigo is becoming more of a destination in its own right, and not just the place where Nanna lives.”

Jones, makes 41 recommendations. Those recommendations include the development of Vector Command Training using online capabilities which may become available when the National Broadband Network is rolled out. Mr Jones noted, however that

the CFA was concerned that online training cannot replace “practical training and face-to-face instruction”. CFA chief executive officer Mick Bourke said the inquiry will have a “lasting, positive impact”. “This inquiry has been bal-

anced, fair and had the interests of CFA volunteers at its heart,” Mr Bourke said. He said the establishment of a new department for training and volunteerism had already improved the CFA’s ability to respond to the needs of volunteers. “Mr Jones’ recommendations will help us build on this and shows that we are heading in the right direction,” Mr Bourke said.

Parliament coup

SAME STORY: Rod Thomson says be cautious about reading too much into the figures. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

THE Victorian Parliament will sit in Bendigo and Ballarat in September next year. Premier Ted Baillieu made the announcement on the eve of the Coalition’s first regional sitting of Cabinet, which takes place in Warrnambool on Monday. Parliament last sat in Bendigo in 2001. Mr Baillieu said regional Parliamentary sittings were a further demonstration of the government’s commitment to returning the focus of government to these regions. The sittings, scheduled for September 6, 2012, will allow residents from these regions to watch Parliament and its members at work on a sitting day.

Chair of Goldfields Tourism and managing director of Bendigo Pottery Rod Thomson cautioned, however, against reading any real change into this visitor snapshot. “Because of the way Bendigo has grown, it’s always been about 50 per cent (the percentage of VFR visitors),” Mr Thomson said. “That’s news we’ve known for decades, and one of the actions we’ve taken in Bendigo is to tap into that market.” Mr Thomson said high VFR rates means visitors may not go to tourist attractions, particularly if Bendigo people

“It’s the classic story: people don’t look at their own backyard.” do not encourage them. “It’s the classic story: people don’t look at their own backyard,” Mr Thomson said. “Bendigo people take us (Bendigo Pottery) for granted, and we’re not the only attraction about which people say, oh I went there 30 years ago. “It’s about being proud of the city they live in and wanting to show it off.” Director of Bendigo Tourism Kathryn Mackenzie welcomed the new

report which showed Bendigo is above the benchmark in many areas of visitor satisfaction. She said the high VFR could work in the city’s favour. “Once upon a time it was seen as a low spend, but that is currently not the case,” Ms Mackenzie said. “In tough times people still make time for their friends and relatives, and so we are possibly fortunate in this climate and hence our numbers are holding up

extremely well. “Even in the international arena, VFR plays a really important role.” The most significant difference between Ballarat and Bendigo identified in the report was the number of visitors who had accessed the internet in order to prepare their trip. “There were a significantly higher proportion of visitors to Ballarat who used the internet for information (59 per cent) compared with Bendigo (39 per cent),”

the report said. Mr Seddon said the difference may be attributed to the importance of Sovereign HIll to Ballarat’s tourism. “I don’t know their web traffic figures but it seems safe to assume they are far higher than Central Deborah’s”, he said. Overall I think this survey reflected well on Bendigo, and if anything was a more positive report than one they did on us four or five years back.”

A CONVERSATION about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Constitutional Recognition will take place at the Bendigo Town Hall on Monday, September 26. Chaired by City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Fyffe, the conversation will discuss the question: does the Constitution adequately reflect who we are as a nation today? “There are sections in the Constitution that give powers to the government to make laws on the basis of race, and reflects the attitude in 1902 of the then ‘White Australia Policy’,” Towards Reconciliation Group convenor Diana Collier said. “But laws on the basis of race can affect any of us.”

Dog owners face penalty LEGISLATION introduced in the Victorian Parliament will see owners of declared dangerous, menacing or restricted-breed dogs serve up to 10 years in jail if their dog kills another person. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the Victorian Coalition Government was introducing tough new penalties to make owners responsible for the actions of their dog. “We are introducing new offences into the Crimes Act for failing to prevent a dangerous, menacing or restricted breed dog from endangering a life or causing a death,” Mr Walsh said.

Police are on the ball By BEN CAMERON

To raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation, the match was an idea that came out of a brainstorming session from the students, and will now become an annual event. “The highlight of the day was when one of our students was so focused, he crashed into the back of an opposition player who went down and hit the deck,” Bendigo Senior’s Peter Burns said. “The referee then called the police team member for travelling.“

NOT for the first time, the combination of age and experience has beaten youthful exuberance, after the Bendigo Police beat VCAL students at Bendigo Senior Secondary College by 12 points in a charity basketball match. Despite receiving some expert coaching from the Bendigo Braves during the week, the students were no match for the police, going down 36 to 24, led by Jeremy Taylor’s game high 12 points.

BEAT THAT: Jarrod Kerwin, Mark Bell and Snr Constable Shannon Joyce.

Town Hall busy but community groups concerned about bookings

Costs cause problems By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

BENDIGO Town Hall is hopping with events, attendances and revenue all well up in the past year. There are concerns, however, that the change in management has made the city’s most prestigious venue less-accessible to community groups. Bendigo Chamber Choir, which presents its 30th anniversary concert at Sacred Heart Cathedral this Sunday, has been frustrated in its attempts to secure a booking at the town hall for its Christmas concert. Choir members say the hall is a “natural fit” for the choir but they have had “nothing but trouble” confirming bookings. Funded by the City of Greater Bendigo, the choir struggles to make ends meet, as it costs about $4000 to put on a concert. Although it is delighted to be singing its anniversary concert in the cathedral, the acoustics and size of the town hall make that venue its first choice. At a rehearsal this week for its anniversary concert, choir con-

HOPING FOR RESIDENCE: The Bendigo Chamber Choir members say the town hall is a natural fit. ductor Michael Bottomley confirmed the group would appreciate a rethink from the City of Greater Bendigo about its status in relation to the town hall. “If there was the opportunity for an in-residence status for the choir, that would be very good,”

Mr Bottomley said. Management of the town hall was transferred to The Capital at the end of the 2009 financial year. Capital CEO David Lloyd said this week that community groups were welcome but it was also important that the “real costs” of

running the venue were met. “For many years the town hall has been significantly underused, and it was getting to the point where it needed some tlc,” Mr Lloyd said. “A lot more people are now accessing the town hall than ever

before and that comes with a cost.” In the 2008-9 financial year, prior to The Capital taking over management responsibilities, 12,100 people attended 63 events, resulting in $18,500 revenue for council. Last financial year, 22,000 people attended 168 events, with $85,500 going into council coffers as a result. Mr Lloyd said the idea of Bendigo Chamber Choir having inresidence status should be given consideration. “I can’t discount anything, and I’d like to hear their direct concerns. “There’s certainly a broader discussion to have with us about community and cultural development.” Mr Lloyd said council had been discussing “quarantining” an amount to fund the long-term organisations, such as the choir and the Bendigo Symphony Orchestra. “These are important organisations that deserve support,” Mr Lloyd said.

THE fairies are in residence this week at The Capital. Bendigo’s community theatre group, CTP Productions are presenting Iolanthe, the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta about “immortal fairies who find themselves at odds with the House of Peers”. CTP has pulled out all the stops to present this magical musical in full luscious colour, to match the beautiful score and lively script. Sue Turpie, Saari Frochot-Ryan and Jayna Gibson lead the band of fairies, and are rejoicing in a production of “Sullivan’s most singable score and Gilbert’s funniest libretto”. Performer Fiona Beckwith said the intimacy of the Bendigo Bank Theatre is perfect for this most lovely of G&S operas. Because it’s in the round, it feels very special,” Fiona said. “There’s a moment in the production when I can almost touch the audience.” This is CTP’s second big production for 2011, following their well-received Katholic Kabaret earlier this year. Final performances of Iolanthe are tonight and tomorrow, at 8pm, in the Bendigo Bank Theatre at The Capital: Tickets $39.

GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY: The Uniting Church at Raywood, left, and at Barnadown are among buildings up for sale next month.

By RosemaRy soRensen

THE four small churches in the Goldfields which all go up for sale at auction next month are likely to be converted into homes. “Everyone loves an old church,” PRH real estate agent Peter Hawkins said this week. “There seems especially to be strong interest in the Raywood one, which is in the lovely main street.” Mr Hawkins said this was the fourth church sale they had conducted recently for the Uniting Church, and the closure of the Barnadown church following last summer’s floods made it possible to auction four at the same time. As well as Raywood and Barnadown, former Uniting Churches in Carisbrook and Korong Vale

(north-east of Wedderburn) will go under the hammer on October 1 at St Andrew’s Church in Bendigo. Presbytery minister for the region the Reverend Gordon Bannon said the church did not force any congregations to close their church but when they got low in numbers, it might be the best decision. “”The congregation has to decide if it’s best to sit on a resource or sell, and to move to combine with neighbouring premises,” Mr Bannon said. “The congregation also gets a large say in how the money will be used, whether it’s in an outreach program or to care for others.” Mr Bannon said the closure of small country churches had ush-

ered in a “new way of being” for the Uniting Church.“Although there are less ministers around now, there is more input from the lay community,” he said. “There are varying responses (from people in the congregations) to seeing churches become homes, but if it’s turned into a nice home, I have heard people rejoice about that. “It’s important to maintain the history, but in the end it’s only a building.” Mr Bannon said the archives from the decommissioned churches were all sent to the synod in Melbourne. “It’s important that people can still get access to the records,” he said.

Drum backs changes to allowance NATIONALS MP for Northern Victoria region, Damian Drum has welcomed changes to the federal government’s Youth Allowance program which he says should make it easier for local students to qualify. Mr Drum said students living in what has been classified as “Inner Regional” areas of Victoria, such as Bendigo, could now apply for independent Youth Allowance under the same rules that apply to students living in “Outer Regional” areas such as Kerang, Swan Hill and Mildura.

SUPPORT: Damian Drum He said changes to eligibility criteria introduced by the Gillard Government in 2010 meant many rural students were discriminated against under a bureau-

cratic definition of “‘inner regional” and “outer regional”. ‘’After another backflip by the Gillard Government on Youth Allowance students in both “inner” and “outer” regions can now qualify by earning $19,500 over an 18-month period.’’ Mr Drum said the Gillard Government had finally recognised that students from regional areas experienced higher costs in relocating in order to continue their studies. Federal Member for Bendigo Steve Gibbons

said the government had listened to students in inner regional areas, including students in the Bendigo district “The Gillard Government has removed the distinctions between regional students so, regardless of whether they live in an inner regional, outer regional, remote or very remote area, all regional students will be subject to the same rules.” The removal of eligibility distinctions for Youth Allowance will take effect from January 1, 2012 and will not be retrospective.

Girls are back

TOP SPOT: Bendigo’s Karlee O’Donnell was last year’s overall winner.


DUST off the tiaras ladies, Miss Country Girl Australia is back in Bendigo this weekend. The nationwide model search will scan rural and regional areas for catwalk talent, until national finalists are discovered to go to Sydney for the big final. With heats scheduled for tomorrow in Hargreaves Mall, local girls aged between 10 and 13 will compete for the Miss Country Girl Junior champion, while girls between 14 and 28 will strut their stuff for the Miss Country Girl Australia title. Last year, Bendigo’s Karlee O’Donnell (left) took out the national title, was signed by the highly regarded Chic Management, and is now being guided by those who have turned Miranda Kerr and Samantha Harris into household names. Over the past year, Karlee has enjoyed some top-notch modelling shoots, as well as television and radio appearances. The Country Girl competition is a proven winner in building catwalk confidence, and creating opportunities for girls to connect with industry professionals, and realise their modelling dreams. “This is a fun and friendly competition with no experience needed,” competition founder Katie Jones said. Girls wanting to register for the event can go to www.misscountrygirlaustralia. or be at Hargreaves Mall tomorrow from 9am.

Recognise warning signs ONE-in-six people will have a stroke in their lifetime. This damning statistic is why John Norton, spokesperson for the Central Victorian Stroke Support Group, is saying people need to understand the risk of stroke, and how to reduce the risk. Mr Norton, a stroke survivor, said the serious impacts of a stroke include paralysis, having to relearn simple daily activities, plus the psychological and social impacts that affect every aspect of a person’s life. “Australians can adopt six simple steps to reduce their risk and danger of stroke,” he said.

Heart to imagine By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

A LABOUR of love by a Bendigo couple has produced the first documentary book about a long-term Tibetan refugee camp in India. Heather and Peter Smith spent several months at the end of last year in Mainpat, a group of refugee villages in a remote region of central India. They photographed and interviewed people forced to flee their homes half a century ago. Collecting the images and stories into a glossy book is the couple’s way of reminding people of the plight of these displaced people. It is also a way to say thankyou to their friends. “We were given incredible generosity by people who have so little,” Peter said. “The concept of what

we were doing with this book was a bit difficult for the Tibetans in the camp to understand. They put a lot of trust in us.” Peter, a former journalist who has travelled many times to India in the past two decades, gradually became involved in the lives

to Buddhism don’t know much about the Tibetan refugee camp.” Fifty Years a Refugee begins with the story of how the Smiths became interested in the Mainpat camps, and describes the friends such as Tashi, whose “good heart” is revered by

“We are trying to do something a little different” of the refugees. He and Heather first travelled together to India in 2001, soon after they married. “Our book is dedicated to a small group of people in the camp,” Heather said. “We wanted to give them a voice, and a value.” “We are trying to do something a little different,” Peter said. “Even people who are interested in or connected

her Tibetan community. An extraordinary blackand-white photograph included in the book shows Tashi and other Tibetans when they arrived in Mainpat in the 1960s, after years of travelling to escape the invading Chinese army. Beautiful photos taken by the Smiths of the village build a picture of these displaced people. “It came home to us, what it means, when they

describe what it’s like not having a country, not having a flag,” Heather said. “They do want to go back, but the village is now well settled, and many of the young ones want to try to get out – America is the Mecca.” Lama Assi, 58, left Tibet when he was seven. He told the Smiths that he would perhaps go back if Tibet were “really free”. “If I could do something for Tibet, I would go, but I don’t know,” he said. Peter and Heather Smith will talk about Fifty Years a Refugee - A Tibetan Journey at Dymocks Bendigo on Saturday, October 8, at 11.30am. The books will be available at Dymocks, Organise My and Just Planet later this month. There is an exhibition of photos from the book at The Subtle Eye Cafe in Bull Street until October 7.

Ben – He’s become a dad for the fourth time, it’s the editor of the Bendigo Weekly, Anthony Radford, congratulations Anthony, mum and bub doing well? Anthony – Hi Ben, yes thanks all going well. Looking forward to the next couple of years which are a great time in any dad’s life. Ben – I hear you’re out and about on location today. Anthony – Yes Jonesy, I’m standing on a block of land next to the North Bendigo Oval because Bendigo Health has announced a $25million residential development, that’s looking at 120 oneand two-bed units in three-storey buildings, as well as a large amount of gardens and communal areas. They are going to house their visiting medical staff, as well as their medical students which is a fantastic development for Bendigo. It’s been in the pipeline for a number of years, the Bendigo hospital leases more than 100 houses for those staff at the moment, so it will be good to get them in the same area. Ben – All of this development suggests Bendigo is going places. Anthony – Yes, Bendigo really is booming at the moment, and I think it’s something that really should be congratulated. Ben – We may be jumping on the Sam Stosur bandwagon here, but I hear there are proposals for the Bendigo tennis stadium. Anthony – The Bendigo Tennis Association which manages and runs the Nolan Street complex has always been a visionary group of people and they are looking at progressing that vision further. They are looking at encouraging more tennis events to Bendigo with some new development along with the new blue playing surface. Ben – I’m a big sports fan, so I hope any chance to bring world-class sport to Bendigo gets looked at very seriously. By the way, child number four, you must be pretty good at the nappy changing now. Anthony – Yeah, I’m pretty good at it now, loads of experience, It doesn’t mean I like it though.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, September 16, 2011 Letters are not guaranteed to be included and may be edited for reasons of style or content. Letters will not be eligible for consideration if they contain defamatory material, or information of a personal nature which is not in the public domain.

The facts on VCAL I WRITE in response to the letter by Labor MP for Bendigo West, Maree Edwards, to correct some of her claims about Coalition Government funding for VCAL. This year, more than 18,700 Victorian students are expected to undertake VCAL with 429 providers across Victoria. VCAL provides pathways for students into employment, further education and training through an applied learning approach. VCAL was first introduced in 2003, and at that time funding was provided to support co-ordination to establish the program. After eight years, VCAL is a well-established senior secondary certificate. There has been no reduction to the funding for the delivery of VCAL. VCAL, along with other programs offered in Victorian government schools, continues to be funded through the Student Resource Package. The SRP is based on the number of students enrolled and schools have flexibility within that budget provision to deliver the programs and support that are designed to improve educational outcomes. In fact, this year SRP funding supported an 8.5 per cent increase in the number of students undertaking the VCAL from 2010. This change brings VCAL into line with the vocational education and training in schools (known as VET in Schools) and VCE programs which do not receive additional funding for co-ordination and have their co-ordination role funded within the SRP. Schools and other education providers have access to a number of support services for VCAL students. The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, the Victorian Applied Learning Association, the Local Learning and Employment Networks and the Workplace

To buy a signed copy of any Glanville cartoon please phone 5442 5448

Learning Coordinators program can and do provide support to VCAL providers. This State Government is, in fact, increasing program funding for VCAL programs by 9.5 per cent this year (from $100.6 million to $111.2 million). Overall, the Victorian Government provided a significant boost for education in the 2011-12 State Budget, allocating more than $1 billion in new funding to early childhood development, school education and higher education and training services. I hope this clears up some of Ms Edwards’ confusion. Damian Drum MLC, Northern Victoria Region.

Liberal National education cuts SINCE coming to Government just nine months ago, the Liberal National Government has slashed $481 million from the education budget. This includes: $48 million over four years stripped from the VCAL

coordination program. Scrapping of the $300 School Start Bonus for 100,000 families. Scrapping of 200 Teaching and Learning Coaches, 45 literacy experts and 15 specialists to help Koorie students. Scrapping of the Young Readers Program. Scrapping of the Apprentice Completion Bonus which supported employers of 14,000 young apprentices. The Liberal National Government’s representative in Bendigo, Damian Drum, might like to explain away these cuts with some more spin – but they are the facts. Mr Drum might also explain why the Liberal National Government backed away from the tenyear Victorian School’s Plan which would have seen ALL Victorian schools rebuilt, extended or modernised by 2016-17. Why they have halved the schools capital budget in 2011-2012 compared with previous financial years. And why 36 schools that were promised before last year’s election are now

on the never-never list for funding. Then there was their promise to make Victorian teachers the highest-paid in Australia, which they never had any intention of fulfilling and have budgeted a 2.5 per cent increase – less than the inflation rate. This is back to the future for Victoria, with a Liberal National Government reminiscent of the Kennett Government. Maree Edwards MP, State Member for Bendigo West.

Addicted to spin I WRITE in response to misleading claims made by National Party MP and Member for Northern Victoria Damian Drum about the Baillieu Government’s $48 million cuts to the VCAL program. It is clear from the letter the Baillieu Government doesn’t understand the basics of the VCAL program, the importance of ongoing funding for co-ordination and doesn’t care about the impact of these cuts on students. Mr Drum claimed there

had been no reduction in VCAL funding, despite the fact that his own government confirmed these callous cuts in Parliament a fortnight ago. Only a Government addicted to spin could claim that a $48-million cut is a funding increase. By cutting the funds for teacher coordination, the Baillieu Government is forcing schools to either cut VCAL programs or cut other vital school programs. Either choice means students lose. Since its introduction by the Labor Government, more and more students are choosing VCAL because of the opportunities it opens up. Teacher coordinators have been essential to its success. They provide oneon-one assistance and direction for students and they link students and employers. By cutting funding to coordinators, the Baillieu Government is cutting off alternative pathways for many students and cutting off opportunities for jobs. Rob Hulls, Shadow Minister for Education.

MAGNET: An artist’s impression of the new facility. doubt it will make at least some difference, especially when coupled with the proposed student accommodation facility mooted for a site across town in the city’s eastern suburbs. The provision of on-site parking and the location of the new accommodation compound just 700 metres from the site of the new hospital should also help relieve at least some pressure on parking in the vicinity of the hospital precinct. The $25-million housing complex planned for a site off Atkins Street in North Bendigo should add significant weight to this city’s pulling power when it comes to the recruitment of medical staff and stu-

dents for Bendigo Health. It’s long been accepted that living and working in a regional location is the best way to eventually entice people to stay in the region. The new facility is also another tribute to the already world-class hospital currently being planned. So while Bendigo could already be proud of the fact its new hospital would be as good as any in a regional centre anywhere in the world, we have just received another good reason to be just a little more proud.

What makes the news? DID Brendan Fevola really vomit in a Melbourne pub earlier this week? That was the question tabloid media were asking on Tuesday, the same day the federal government chose to introduce one of the most contentious, controversial and important pieces of legislation into the federal parliament. And just the other day, sections of the media were fixated by the apparent mysterious phallic scribbling that appeared on some StreetView maps of the Long Gully and Maiden Gully areas. Call me strange, but the faint blue texta scribble could also have been mistaken for Grandpa Simpson’s bald and wrinkly cone-shaped head. Probably would not have generated the same amount of fuss though. Or did you read how Miss Columbia was in trouble with Miss Universe pageant organisers for not wearing knickers beneath her very short dresses? And Miss Australia was in trouble because her costumes were too revealing? Shock horror. More headlines of a similar nature were generated when actress Demi Moore

tweeted a semi-naked picture of herself. Apparently it was not for the first time either. So what might be viewed as a D-grade effort by a B-grade celebrity for some desperately needed publicity is actually a really poor example to young women around the world who at the same time are being encouraged not to do exactly what Ms Moore has done.

THE long-awaited announcement on exactly where Bendigo Health plans to build its new accommodation complex was finally answered this week, and the organisation has wasted no time in getting on the front foot and spruiking the good news. Billed as “an exciting era in accommodation for health professionals”, the $25-million facility is also likely to be a magnet for health professionals trying to determine where they should study/work/live in coming years. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent in recent years by regional and rural communities keen to attract medical staff to their part of the world, and this promised new accommodation complex has the potential to become a beacon for all those efforts of the past, and a source of great hope for the future. And while emergency accommodation providers have suggested at this early stage that the addition of new housing stock of this scale will do little to relieve demand for rental accommodation, there’s no

It’s all part of the dumbing down of news that is a symptom of our fascination with the internet and everything on it. A more appropriate question that should have been asked would be this : Why do we even have a Miss Universe competition anymore? Haven’t we moved on from all this?

Name games in the frame

Do we need to call a spade a spade, rather than an earth relocation device? WE all love to feel special, and an important title certainly helps. While nobody wants to be pigeon-holed (unless it’s “good luck charm”, “life of the party” or “chick magnet”) most are happy to have a highfalutin’, more-importantsounding-than-it-actually-is, job title. Which is why we now live in a world of garbologists and traffic supervisors. But then again, who would argue against having a touch of gravitas applied to their otherwise rudimentary occupation? It’s why reporters would rather be known as journalists, and cooks would rather be chefs. Even though they’re both essentially reporting, and cooking, when it all boils down to it. I first noticed this need to tart up your job title when Tom Cruise took Renee Zellweger out for dinner in Jerry Maguire, and her young son is left in the hands of a nanny. “I prefer child technician,” the nanny says, a touch wounded. We’re all aware that titles, especially in the celebrity world, now come in the double header variety, like “model/actress” or “presenter/DJ”. But it raises the question:


is it difficult to know which job title to go with first? Does it depend on how much time you devote to each craft, or is there a Darwinian order of importance? It also poses the question: do these celebrities use these

I’m sorry but nicknames are a bit like presents. tenuous titles on their tax returns? It’s a bit like people who grant themselves a nickname; the kind of pretentious douche who is just a tad too keen to be seen in a particular light. How do you know? Well, these people usually go by the name of “Muscles” or “Ladies Man”, so they’re not too hard to spot. And they’re usually

totally bereft of humour or irony – the whole point of the exercise in awarding a nickname. I once played cricket in Scotland against a bloke like this, and our first meeting was a little on the awkward side. “Hi, Ben’s my name,” I said with hand outstretched. “John, but people around here call me Magic,” he replied, totally deadpan. But not in the funny, dry as a cinder, Scottish tradition. Sure they do, you tosser. I’m sorry, but nicknames are a bit like birthday presents. Sometimes, it’s actually better to receive than give.

Admittedly, most of us avoid such nihilistic behaviour, but the media fuels this desire to put everyone in a box. In football, a player is either a “jet”, “journey man” or “trade bait”; just like some tailenders in cricket are “no mug with the bat”, footballers are lauded for “knowing where the goals are”. Which is odd, because surely you wouldn’t draft a player who couldn’t see four posts sticking out of the ground, at either end of the oval. So as far as labels go, I thought I’d seen and heard it

all until I saw 6.30 with George Negus last week. There was a story about some Indonesian bloke who once trained the Bali Bombers. According to the story, we can all rest easy because he’s seen the light and hung up the box cutter and ignitable shoes. In fact, Channel Ten went as far as describing him as a “former terrorist”. However stupid, a precedent has been set. So now I’m hanging out for the day Nick Maxwell has the graphic “former commentator” below his name, or “former antagoniser” under Kevin Sheedy’s.

The most comfortable person I’ve ever met in terms with his place in the world was my former boss. Driving to the building site one day he said “Mate, I’m just a roof tiler, that’s all I know how to do.” That’s not 100 per cent accurate, he was a thrifty roof tiler, who often didn’t bother with scaffolding while tiling two storey houses, but his words left a mark. We are who we are. And no fancy titles, inherited or otherwise, can change that. Ben Cameron Glorified opinion giver.

Pre-Summer Sale!

Friday 16th & Saturday 17th September, 9 am to 5 pm

We have heaps of stock thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to go!


MARK and Janine Coffey of Wine Bank on View, took over the running of the cafĂŠ tram more than two years ago. Renamed ninesevensix because that was its original number, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to move it from the box you put it in. Any old stories you may have heard, you can also put to rest. As Mark said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect for any kind of occasion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the first date, where any awkward silences can be filled with â&#x20AC;&#x153;ooh, look at the Cathedral all lit up at night â&#x20AC;&#x153;. (I tried this line on the night but Red Rooster was the view out the window and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work so well.)

The journey always begins with a meet up at the Wine Bank with a complimentary drink before take-off/lift-off/ departing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whichever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to call it. When we boarded (no fat controller in sight) we were seated and given the most delicious selection of pre-dinner nibbles with things such as caramelised onion tartlets and rare beef with horseradish. The menu is now a selection of three each of entrĂŠe, main and dessert with a local flare. Think things like pistachio crusted duck with raspberry sauce and truffled chicken or steamed salmon and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the right track (pardon the pun).

Obviously, being linked with the Wine Bank means the wine list is fantastic and all locally sourced. When we disembarked, we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but think how great a night weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had. Spending the night mixing it up with all sorts of different people was a hoot. Apparently other guests on different nights donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend the night swapping tables like we did, but we highly recommend it. Nicole Murphy travelled on the ninesevensix restaurant tram as a guest of the management. Bendigo ninesevensix runs every Saturday evening and takes about three hours. Four-course meal including drinks is $98. Phone bookings on 5444 4655.

Incidents in Irishtown

LATE in 1864 the manager of the Bendigo Waterworks Company, Mr A. Sprigg made a complaint to the Sandhurst Borough Council regarding the water pipes being undermined in Irishtown. According to Sprigg, Sullivan and party were, through their alluvial mining operations, responsible for the undermining of the water mains and subsequently their damage. George Avery Fletcher, the town surveyor, was instructed by the councillors to ensure that no damage to the Bendigo Waterworks Company mains was done by Sullivan and party. A few weeks later the council received correspondence from Edward Chaplin, secretary of the Waterworks Company explaining that Sullivan and company were working under the pipes and had created a large hole, leaving the pipes unsupported. The unsupported pipes, it was argued, would either crack or shift and create leaks at the joints as they were made of lengths of cast iron. It was the intention of the Waterworks Company to prosecute Sullivan and party. The Mayor however, pointed out that Sullivan and party had the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permission to mine the roadway and then they had to reconstitute the road in an improved state. George A. Fletcher was to inform the Waterworks Company, to the effect that Sullivan and party had to complete the work as originally agreed by the council.


JAMES LERK Many readers will be familiar with Bakewell Street which was one of Irishtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major roadways leading north; Bakewell had a store for general supplies situated there. A certain William Oliver had stolen a quantity of mining tools from Bakewellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s store. Oliver, according to the police, had on-sold the tools that he had stolen.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illies managed to rise from the roadway and started to struggle to walk to his home. â&#x20AC;? These tools had been identified by Bakewell as having come from his place. In December 1863 an accident having fatal consequences took place in Irishtown to a local resident, Johann Frederick Illies, whose house was located on Bridge Street. Illies was the owner of a horse-drawn dray, in which he was standing while holding the reins of a mare harnessed to the dray. It transpired that the mare in harness had never been in a dray before. This was why another man, an acquaintance of Illies, was helping lead the horse which had blinkers fitted to its head. Illiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mate held the halter while walking with the mare.

tyred wheel of the dray ran over the abdomen of Johann Illies. The weight of the dray was about 600 kilograms. Illies managed to rise from the roadway and started to struggle to walk to his home. Some men came to Illiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; assistance and helped to get him to his simple abode. Dr Harry Leigh Atkinson was called and he knew that the internal pain that Illies was suffering from was not a good sign. Johann lingered for several days and succumbed to his injuries, rupture of the intestine as well as the liver. Bakewell incidentally, apart from being a store owner was also the water rates collector for the Bendigo Waterworks Company.

When they were close to Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hotel, the horse suddenly shied and started running, Illiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mate pulled hard on the halter and brought the horse to its knees. Illies continued to hold on to the reins while he jumped out of the dray and onto the roadway, his intention was to take hold of the mareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blinkers. The horse however had other ideas and was back on its hoofs, shaking its head vigorously, attempting to shake off Illiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hold. Immediately the horse began to run and, as Illies still had the reins in his hand, he too was forced to do the same in order to keep up.

Space oddity BENDIGO LIFE


THE desert is about space. Big sky, big land and lots and lots of space. I was travelling again to Alice Springs, to work at a music conference that develops and promotes Northern Territory music – with the added bonus of heading to Tennant Creek for Desert Harmony, a landmark indigenous music and culture festival in Warumungu country. I couldn’t wait to get my boots covered in red dust and have my cluttered mind cleared by being in a place where time skids to a halt, and the great scheme of things bears down to remind you that the world is far bigger than that of your own making. What a 12 days it turned out to be. Off the plane and into the car, zooming north up the Stu-

art Highway at 130kmh (legal), with the rapping kids from the Red Sand Culture CD the car’s soundtrack. I watched the landscape transform from black and red to green and yellow, the acacia thick

Just part of the vast space that was the desert in the distance from the rains the year before – that which made Alice’s sandy Todd River flow and become torrential. It’s a strange sight to see a river of sand, with gnarly trees sprouting not from green but red.

The Territory comes alive with amazing music and characters And even stranger to see a river of fire which the Todd often becomes nightly in Alice Springs, as campfires career out of control. On the opening night of our conference a riverbed grassfire sprouted against pitch black, just metres away. Firies were there within minutes. It was burned out in spectacular fashion. Fires are also a big feature of Tennant. One night – before we had dinner at a restaurant housed inside a squash court – I was photographing a local memorial at sunset high up on a hill. A fire front that stretched for miles slowly unfurled like a great snake along the horizon. Twister-like plumes of black smoke draped themselves against the dusky sky. But it all felt unthreatening, just part of the vast space that was the desert

DL W V S X  H P R &

to better communicate the issues and solutions to potential board members. Competency in this area is becoming a greater concern to many board members with the increasing focus by commonwealth and state government departments on the governance, accountability and transparency of boards. Governance is a leadership process, and to function effectively, each board member should

have a clear understanding of their governance roles and responsibilities and how to apply them within a leadership framework or context. To help overcome this problem Better Boards Australasia is running a “Governance 101” seminar in Bendigo on October 11. This two-hour seminar is focused on the principles and practices of non-profit governance, and how these can be practically applied by

individual board members to governing, not managing a non-profit organisation. This presentation aims to provide a solid foundation or refresher in governance for potential or new board members of non-profit organisations, and for existing board members looking to update their knowledge.

Friday, September 16, 2011 – Bendigo Weekly



PEGZ: BUILDING BLOCKS BEN CAMERON THE urban language of hip hop inspired Tirren Staaf aka Pegz to turn his life around. Years ago he left home at age 14, floating from gang to gang, until the traditionally AfroAmerican sound paved the way for an Australian life much extraordinary. “Who would have known all those years of being a kid listening to this music, all this knowledge could be applied to my life, to my career,” Pegz says. And now after hanging up the mic in 2007, the hunger for creating his own hip hop expression is back. Specifically, it was the loss of a close friend that sparked his “writing renaissance”. “I felt really emotional and inspired to do something with it, rather than let it go,” he says. “It’s back in full force, the

inspiration, and the will to write.” Set to perform at Music Man Megastore (September 23), and hopefully guide some young local hip hop artists, Pegz comes armed not only with immense respect, but a story that resonates with anybody from the wrong side of struggle street. “My upbringing was extremely difficult,” he says. “There’s a story I have that really relates with the kids. “My story says ‘Look at me. If I can do it anybody can do it’. “I love giving back. Offering the kids any inspiration is beneficial to everybody really. “Kids need different role models, there’s not enough out there to draw inspiration from.” Back in 1992, when Pegz first began to blaze the trail for future generations, most hip hop mentors could only be found on vinyl. “There was no crowd back then,” he says of a fledgling music scene. “Honestly, from 1990 to 1999, there were very few people that I met who were actively doing something during that period. “Record labels weren’t investing in these artists, there wasn’t a fan base and there was


no airplay.” Basically, a career in hip hop was a pipe dream. “Everything seemed like a dream back then,” he says. “We all wanted to be rapping, but there didn’t seem to be the path to make it happen. “Unlike today you didn’t have those role models, you didn’t see that success.” While the Hilltop Hoods have enjoyed their share of press for launching “skip hop” into the relative mainstream, Pegz believes The Hoods have followed scores of others, equally deserving of high praise. “The Hoods have got the credit they deserve, there’s no doubt about that,” he says. “But there have been dozens of others who have been the catalyst to bringing everything together, who will never be credited. “These are the pioneers, the guys who laid down the foundations for everything we have now. “Guys like Def Wish Cast, Reason from Melbourne and the AKA Brothers, Koolism. “That’s the building blocks of what we have now.” While hip hop allowed Pegz to dream and ultimately

• Win Flo Rida tix•Shaun Kirk • Deni Ute Muster •Star Wars-fest • Madder Lake • Lucie Thorne • Tonight Alive • The Vagrants

achieve, it also armed him with the strength to help save Obese Records, during its darkest hour. “It was never my ambition to run Obese, or take over, when I was working behind the counter,” he says. “But unforeseen circumstances have got me where I am now. “Somebody had to take over the reins, or we were going to go under, so I stepped up and the rest is history.” As chief executive officer of Obese, he’s now calling the shots on its future direction, and providing guidance for the next generation of talent on its books, from the likes of Illy, Dialectrix and Split Syndicate. “I hope we can bounce back to our heyday of The Hoods and Blis N Eso,” he says. “(I’m) looking to push these younger artists through... it’s interesting times ahead.” Thankfully, they’re coming through at a time when the support structures are firmly in place. “There are a lot more opportunities these days, and these opportunities have afforded artists the ability to create a career out of making music,” he says. “That’s the biggest change.

Pegz owes a lot to hip hop. Artists are able to spend their whole day, their whole week, making music these days, due to those opportunities.” Young Bendigonians should not miss the opportunity to meet an Australian hip hop

pioneer. “It’s an absolute pleasure to come to Bendigo,” he says. “I’m stinging to get up there to tell you the truth.” Pegz plays the Music Man Megastore on September 23.


A GREATEST hits album usually comes at the end of a career, not at the beginning. But Bendigo’s Soundhole like to do things a little differently. Look no further than their first release Greatestits for proof. Recorded in December of last, and early this year, the LP is a statement from a band that loves producing “rocker-bitchin’ biker blues... with a hint of something fun”, as much as they do planting the tongue firmly in their collective cheek. “The tongue has to be in the cheek,” Soundhole’s Broden Penna says. “As soon as a band starts becoming serious and starts posing for photos and trying to look cool to impress other people, that’s when it all starts to suck! “We’re entirely selfish in the sense that we’re not making our stuff to impress people, but just to amuse ourselves. “The more ridiculous the

better although that being said, ironically, sometimes the most ridiculous thing you can do is become seemingly serious, but there’s always that hint of pisstake.” Pisstakery aside, Penna, along with Mason Matheson, Dave McCrann and Twiggy “Slydog” Hunter, also wanted to revive an old relic of the past: the album. “Why is no one doing an album?” Penna asks. “Like a sweet old fashion eight track vinyl. “It’s all iTunes this and downloadable content that, just put your stuff on a real format and let people convert it later.” Soundhole emerged from the inevitable hiatus of Penna’s last band, Rocksteady. “RockSteady had been put on a break after the guitarist Flash Craig left, so I started working on this stuff and when we got back to jamming new stuff, with what we called Newsteady,” he laughs.

BOOKclub news Books for sale WHEN you slump down into one of the four red couches in the foyer to browse a book, remember to say a quick thanks to the Friends of Bendigo Library. It is through sales of donated books and magazines that the Friends collected sufficient funds for not just the couches but also a dozen armchairs to add to readers’ comfort when visiting the library. Anne and John Flood are members of the Friends, and they say the quarterly booksales are always popular. “We make the prices pretty cheap,” John said, “and when they are all stacked up on tables, you can pick up some good bargains.

“We raise the money to help provide additional things for the library.” The Book Sale is on again tomorrow from 10am to 12.30pm. Bendigo Weekly bookclub member Liz Knox is launching her picture book this month. Don’t Call Me Honey! Call Me Cherry Pie is about finding the humour in sharing life with a child who has an intellectual disability. “No matter how bad things get,” Liz says, “seeing the amusing side of things can put it all in perspective.” Liz will be at the Bendigo Library on Saturday, September 24, then at Dymocks on Tuesday, September 27

“It was just not my bag at the time, so the guys took me out to T’hooft and chucked me out... made me pay for my own lunch too!” So Soundhole was initially Penna’s baby. “It started as ‘my thing’ to begin with, all the songs on the CD I had written prior to even having a full band,” he says. “I always intended to start this with my old buddy Mason whom I’ve known since I was born practically, but once we got Dave and Twiggy in as a solid lineup, I made sure the guys knew their input was encouraged, so we all added our own flavour to the songs and changed up some arrangements. “I never wanted the stuff to be played my way or whatever, I just picked a few talented guys, gave ‘em some songs and a basic idea and they rolled with it.” Soundhole is happy keeping things Bendigo-centric for now. “We don’t need to be in

from 10am until noon, and again on Thursday, September 29 from noon until 2pm. We’re building our list of Bendigo Weekly Bookclub recommended reads, with a couple of interesting recommendations added this week. Sally from Strathfieldsaye has nominated The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields, and Mary from Eaglehawk adds Philip Roth’s The Human Stain (made into a film with Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkins) to our list. Add your recommendation to the Bookclub Best list by sending an email to bookclub@bendigoweekly.

The boys from Soundhole. Melbourne every week trying to ‘make it’ because it’s just not going to happen,” he says. “We’re quite content just exploring our abilities to make some cool music and have a good old laugh while we’re at it.” Penna admits the debut record is a “mixed bag”, with influences ranging from Queens of the Stone Age to Thin Lizzy, a Spanish flavoured number (“On El Yachte”) and a hip hop parody (“Bounce”). “The songs are so different

from each other, that they don’t really have any continuity so it was like a random compilation of some weird band’s Greatest Hits,” he says. “The Part 2 bit was just to mess with people. It worked.” Penna ditches his opera trained pipes of days gone by, to channel his inner ZZ Top with some down and dirty, Camelenriched vocals on “Motor Driven Mean Machine”. It’s become a You Tube hit, with 1500 hits at last count.

Directed by “honorary fifth member” Matt Wilson it combines Penna’s penchant for old school rock, and all time fav flick Terminator 2. So what else does Greatest*ts have to say? “That recording didn’t get any better after 1979. And to just be cool. Things ain’t so bad,” Penna says.

Perrows Paint You’ve probably seen the well-known Perrows van but you might not know that Perrows opened in 1935. When Jack Perrow started, the shop sold house paints and had a team of 20 painters and decorators. In 1950, Tom and Joyce Sheers purchased the business. At that time Tom began to concentrate on paint sales; Tom decided to start selling automotive paints and was one of the first in country Victoria to sell automotive products. Ken joined in 1966 and started calling on panel

shops in Bendigo and country areas. “Our truck is now as familiar in country areas as the snail is in Bendigo. The truck is our shop on wheels supplying everything that’s in the shop with the exception of mixed colour.” In 1980 Tom and Joyce retired, handing the business over to Ken. During the mid 80s Ken decided to concentrate on automotive, industrial and timber coatings, hence the name change to Perrows Automotive Paints. Perrows also offer free delivery to local customers. Visit Perrows at 47 Breen Street, or call 5443 4933.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, September 16, 2011



Pedal power THERE was action aplenty last weekend at the Bendigo BMX track as riders took advantage of a fast track to test themselves to the limit as part of the Gold Rush open event.

TAYLOR’S BRAVE RIDE BENDIGO paralympian Mick Taylor has begun his Para-cycling World Championships with a brave ride in terrible conditions. Competing in Denmark, Taylor claimed 17th place in a 61km road race on August 10, despite coming off his bike at one point. But with blood streaming from his left forearm, Taylor battled fierce pack surges, at speeds of up to 60kmh to finish bravely.

CAPTAIN WINS AWARD THE Fighting Miners’ captain Jesse Tuitupou has won the prestigious Doug Ross Trophy for Best player in the Victorian Rugby Union Country Division. The winner of the award is determined by votes lodged by opposition teams after each match. Tuitupou had an outstanding season, scoring seven tries in 11 matches and leading from the front. Bendigo coach Charlie Ihaka was delighted at Tuitupou’s win.

BTA SEEKS PLAYERS THE Bendigo Tennis Association is urging all players intending to participate in tennis programs this summer to start thinking tennis. BTA Executive Officer Leon Retallick urged players to contact their clubs in order to submit teams with the Association prior to relevant closing dates. All BTA affiliate clubs are actively looking to engage new and existing members into tennis, with many clubs conducting opening days coming up over the next couple of weeks.

Why not try a 29er? LIKES and dislikes – we all have them, it is part of human nature. Mountain bike riders certainly have a lot more to look for when making choices related to where or how they might like to ride. Handling is directly related to the frame set up and components, choices are plentiful as the style of bike depends on the type of off-road riding being undertaken. Since the 1980s the MTB scene has had a new choice of wheel size – the traditional 26” or the 29” which is more aligned with the road bike size tyre 700c. Apparently the concept grew out of a prototype built up by English off-road cycling pioneer Geoff Apps, which he had developed using 700c Nokia snow tyres from Finland. Other MTB frame de-

EDDIE BARKLA signers and builders Gary Fisher and Charlie Kelly became intrigued and the rest is now living and growing MTB bike history. MTB riders have been likened to that of four wheel drivers in that the original intent for harsh off-road conditions has changed considerably and the spectrum of users has widened, becoming more of a recreation sport. Like some four wheel drivers who might never get their tyres dirty, some MTB riders are merely offroad path riders and enjoy the comfort that dual suspension frame geometry delivers. The introduction of the 29” wheel and tyres for off-road use has brought much debate about the larger wheel delivering a

wider area to share the surface area over rough terrain. The big wheels found on 29er mountain bikes can be run at lower pressures and allow a bigger contact area with the ground giving much more grip. The thoughts are the 29er can cope with extra weight and is well suited to the taller and heavier riders, allowing a greater momentum and granting more stability. There is also the viewpoint they will be more sluggish for the serious technical riders who use the 26” wheels and bounce over unbelievably rough terrain at amazing speeds. Increased height for the centre brackets has been overcome with new designs specifically for 29er bikes; low standover height has been achieved and the wheelbase re-

BRAVES STARS SHINE SYMES Motors Bendigo Braves players Ivan McFarlin and Luke Meyer have won recognition as part of the SEABL east conference all-star five for the second consecutive season. Imports McFarlin and Meyer are part of a lineup that includes Knox players CJ Massingale and Lester Strong and Kilsyth’s Tim Lang in the all-star line-up for this 2011 season. Both McFarlin and Meyer will suit up in this Saturday’s SEABL national championship decider against Nunawading at Dandenong Stadium.

UPSIZE: The larger tyres can offer more grip. duced to compare with the 26” length. Much work has been done to get stronger and lighter wheels. All this with other technical aspects of frame length and cornering response make some sense to the discerning MTB competitor to try a 29er. Weight can have an affect on acceleration, momentum and braking. While it would seem

negligible to some, to the discerning all factors need to be added up in performance where 10ths of a second mean a win or loss. 29ers are now winning at the world cup level in the elite men category. Anyone on a bike has to be a winner and 29ers beckon you to consider them. Looking forward to seeing you on the road soon, God willing.

HOCKEY TEAMS PROGRESS THE Central Victoria Blazers men’s and women’s teams will both play in this weekend’s State League grand finals at the State Hockey Centre in Parkville. The Blazers scored a 2-1 victory in the preliminary final clash with Mornington, and will now take on La Trobe Uni in the grand final. CV Blazers scored a 4-1 win against La Trobe Uni in the women’s preliminary final to make it through to this weekend’s grand final.

Your horoscope Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 19):

A relationship or situation that began with gusto in April arrives at a point of evaluation. The question of commitment may always be an issue in this combination. Tensions that have been submerged may suddenly erupt and one of you may depart the scene. If you are in a normally stable relationship, then one or both of you is looking for some fresh excitement.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 19):

Love life and creativity get a gold star this week. You may feel as though you are attacked in your work life or with employees. If you have not been attending to your personal health, a situation may develop suddenly that is your message to get started.

Gemini (May 20 - June 20):

Your Guardian Angel is watching out for you during this period. You have positive news and good fortune through family connections. There is, however, an accompanying irksome situation that keeps you from feeling fully at ease. Your mind is in one place and your heart another. Take your time.


Cancer (June 21 - July 21):

You have a conflict between what you feel and what you think. When stuck in this place, we usually are unable to move forward in any significant way. Our minds see what is logical, rational, and orderly. But our hearts are in the space of feelings, which have no rules. Withhold judgment until a solution develops that allows both rationality and can be supported by feelings.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22):

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19):

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21):

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 17):

A situation with a significant other or a family member may suddenly break loose. It will require all of your natural diplomacy and self control to avoid being pulled into a brew. Alternatively, these symbols could represent an accident or property damage at home. Be certain everything is backed up.

Leo (July 22 - Aug 21):

There may be a skirmish with a partner or roommate over the sharing of resources. This is not the ultimate deal breaker and the moments of discomfort pass fairly quickly if your relationship is basically sound. Don’t turn the issue into a disaster. Let it go and choose a better time in the future to deal more fully with the problem if necessary.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 22):

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 20):

Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week and will be travelling with you for seven weeks. This energy is especially helpful in defining our boundaries. Periodically we need to examine who we are and also who we are not. Often something is eliminated. In general, Mars will increase your physical strength. This is a fine weekend for travel and activities concerning the law, education, or the internet. Open your mind and your arms wide to accept expansion. Meanwhile, on the home front, you need more time to think about an issue concerning close friends or family. Your mind says one thing and your feelings another.

You have a desire to reach outward to others. You want to share ideas and express yourself in a larger framework. Circumstances on the romantic front are favourable with one who shares intellectual interests. Activities involving teaching/learning are favoured, along with good aspects for travel.

You are under a tremendous amount of stress at this time. There is pressure from both work and family. You may feel as though at a breaking point with all the responsibility and concerns. Take very special care of yourself and take your vitamins. Follow a good health regimen to get through this period.

You are between a rock and a hard place on an issue of law, ethics, education or religious beliefs. You have pondered this for many months and have arrived at a decision. However, if you proceed you may be in a position of abandoning someone. Or that person may feel compelled to abandon you.

Pisces (Feb 18 - Mar 19): The next two weeks focus your attention on the subject of healing. This may develop on the physical, spiritual or emotional plane. Given the mind-body connection, it is probable that work on the emotional level will heal you physically and vice-versa. If it is not you who is healing, then it is someone significant in your life to whom you are attending.

Footy stars drop in SOME of footy’s big names created a stir when they dropped into St Francis of the Field primary school this week as part of the Toyota Good for Footy Tour. The current and former players have been visiting re-

gional centres to promote interest in this year’s AFL Finals, taking with them a replica of the AFL premiership cup as they sign autographs and provide giveaways to eager youngsters who are the future stars of the game.

Williams tips Judd for medal By BEN CAMERON

CHRIS JUDD is a shooin for his third Brownlow medal, according to Blues legend Greg Williams. As a guest speaker for the Golden Eagles coterie group at The Bridge Hotel last Friday, the man known as Diesel said the Carlton captain should break the record for most votes in a season. “He’s almost a certainty this year (to win the Brownlow), I think he’ll get 35 votes this year,” he said. “By the time he’s finished, he could win four or five Brownlows. It’s not out of the question.” Williams, who also believes Judd could be regarded as the greatest player of all time by the end of his career, said he had no problem with Carlton’s handling of the hype surrounding coach Brett Ratten’s contract extension. “They made their decision early but I’m confident he’ll stay, there’s


no question whatever happens,” he said before Carlton’s recent Round 24 62-point demolition of Essendon. “I think he’s done a fantastic job (this year).” Williams, not noted for his pace, is confident he’d still get a guernsey in Carlton’s muchimproved midfield, if he were playing now.

“I’m confident I’d do all right,” he said. “Sam Mitchell is a pretty serious player, and he’s not that fast, it’s not an issue really. “It’s a pretty serious midfield now. Even with (Mitch) Robinson and (Kade) Simpson, there’s a heap of blokes who can go through there if you need. “A few recruits like Duigan have helped a lot, plus the pressure they put on now, the forward press for example, they’re doing that a lot better.” Williams said Gavin Wanganeen, the man many believe stole the 1993 Brownlow off him, hadn’t bought him a beer yet. “No, he didn’t steal it,” he laughed. Now a successful businessman, the hard centreman said closing a deal was harder than getting his hands on the ball on a muddy day. “Business is harder, I didn’t find it hard getting a kick,” Williams said.

“Don’t Pay Dealer Prices” Greater quality at a better price

Top of the game THERE must be something in the water bottles down at St Therese’s Primary School. Last weekend, two of their Under 12 football stars, Darcy Bakes and Zack Shelton, wrote their names into the school’s sporting history with very similar stories. Darcy captained the B team to a premiership (he was a premier-

ship player last year too), while Zack Shelton skippered the C team to glory. But the similarities don’t end there. Both boys were judged best on ground in their respective grand finals, and both went on to win best-and-fairest awards with their teamsDarcy tied with teammate Daniel Clohesy.

Triathlon continues growth WITH participation numbers at the Bendigo Triathlon Club doubling over the past six years, a big season looms and the club’s bluechip event starts this weekend. The $10,000 Bendigo Villawood Triathlon Series, the largest Victorian regional triathlon series, starts tomorrow at Lake Neangar, with registration from 7am, and the race at 8am.

In Bendigo our participation numbers have doubled in the past six years. “People are realising the short course distances of 200-metre swim, eightkilometre cycle, and twokilometre run are achievable. “The club has also developed an environment where everybody is welcome; it’s not about competition it’s more about participation. “The races have a great atmosphere and are family friendly. “We run a barbecue breakfast at each event and we have lots of giveaways for the junior competitor.” Get more details at
