VILLA FARCE NO GO: Red tape is holding up progress on Fortuna Villa. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN


THE future of Bendigo’s grand historical mansion is bogged so deep in political bickering and buckpassing, all hope of an outcome any time soon has gone. This week, there were more conspiracies floating around than in a Dan Brown novel: mysterious cabinet documents that nevertheless sit on an opposition politician’s desk, and commercial-in-confidence letters that are also bandied about and quoted when it suits. Meanwhile, the big ornate For-

Fortuna wrapped in red tape

tuna Villa sits on its prime Bendigo site, the outbuildings an asbestos hazard, the grounds contaminated by untreated mine tailings, costing a shade under $1 million every year in security and basic upkeep. With its destiny in the hands of Messrs Damian Drum and Steve Gibbons, Fortuna is now one large embarrassment, a white elephant without a future.

The story thus far: a document variously described as a Business Plan or Feasability Study was commissioned in May last year by the former Brumby Government. According to Nationals Member for Northern Victoria Region Damian Drum, that “back of a beer coaster, cobbled together� document was “thin on planning, outcomes, costs and where millions in

ongoing funding was supposed to come from.� It was also, according to Mr Drum, submitted to cabinet by the Brumby Government, who announced just before the state election funding of $7 million and a commitment to negotiating with the Federal Government. That makes the document unavailable to both the public

and the current state government. However, a copy of that document sits in Mr Drum’s office, and it was from his assessment of it that he issued statements about the unfeasibility of the plan, and also the desire of the previous Labor Government to hide its shortcomings. At the same time, the Fortuna Action Group applied for the release of the report under the Freedom of Information Act.

IT must be summer when talk around Bendigo consists of Lake Eppalock, swimwear and tennis. Summer’s Bendigo Magazine has hit the stands, and as well as looking at all of the above, there are a couple of surprises in store. “You will be forgiven if you do a double take,” editor Andrea Coates said. “Bendigo Magazine has undergone a little makeover. Cleaner layouts, more gorgeous photographs and a new font or two means you have a simply stunning new way to enjoy the Bendigo Magazine you have always known and loved. “This issue includes beautiful babies who arrive too early, a second post-drought summer of a brimming Lake Eppalock,

the Bendigo Art Gallery hosting yet another fine exhibition and all the regulars such as competitions, photo opportunities, food, wine, entertainment, house, garden, people, life and the latest fashion looks for this summer.”

The revamped Bendigo Magazine also coincides with the relaunch of its new-look website “We are really excited about this,” Ms Coates said. “You now have access to current issue editorial and photog-

raphy, online versions of our previous issues, competitions, photos from events around town and much more,” she said. Bendigo Magazine is on sale for $4.95 from newsagents, petrol stations, milk bars and supermarkets in the Bendigo area.

State Government provides $750,000 top-up grant

Library’s happy chapter By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

GOLDFIELDS Library Corporation delivered a strong set of numbers in the annual report this week. And its success was rewarded with another fine number: a $750,000 top-up grant from the State Government. Across the network’s 11 libraries (including the mobile service), membership increased 8.54 per cent in 201011, from 79,456 to 86,245. The total number of loans also increased 9.6 per cent, from 1.5 million in 2009-10 to 1.6m in the last financial year. During the year, too, the Corporation adopted a five-

year Library Plan, and endorsed the Masterplan for the Bendigo Library.

That redevelopment project received a boost this week when Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell announced Bendigo will receive $750,000 as part of the $17.2 million Living Libraries scheme. This tops up the $2 million regional development grant, which the City of Greater Bendigo council voted last month to commit to the library’s $8.4 million redevelopment. Council chief executive officer Craig Niemann said the 28-year-old library had served the community well, but it needs to be upgraded.

“It’s time to bring on a contemporary look and feel to respond to the way libraries operate now,” Mr Niemann said. Library chief executive Carolyn Macvean said the increase in membership and usage is a result of an increase in both the collection and programs. “We have a better collection now, and there are many more uses for the collection,” Ms Macvean said. “We have drawn in people we wouldn’t have had in the library before and with the new development, we expect that to grow even more.” Building works are scheduled to begin in June next year and expected to be completed within two years.

Tree a kick start to Christmas

TreaT Time: mayor rod Fyffe, santa and camp Hill Primary school students Harry Jackel, rory marshall, emma webb and Neve surridge with the new christmas tree in Pall mall. Photo: BILL CONROY

THE appearance of the Downtown Bendigo Christmas Tree in Rosalind Park means two things, the Christmas festive season has arrived in Bendigo and the annual lighting of the tree is only hours away. Festivities surrounding the lighting up of the tree will be held tonight from 6pm. City of Greater Bendigo mayor Rod Fyffe said the evening was always a popular one. “I encourage everyone to bring along a picnic and find a spot on the grass in Queen Victoria Gardens or Rosalind Park and enjoy this free family event which really does mark the countdown to Christmas in Bendigo,” he said. Festivities include roving entertainers and a range of carnival rides in Sidney Myer Place, next to the Bendigo Visitor Centre. Visitors to Rosalind Park will be entertained by Bendigo Health’s Bennie and Hellie, the City of Greater Bendigo’s Goldie the Wonder Dog and Ben and Jo, Bendigo Bank Piggy, and Variety the Children’s Charity Heart. The Variety Santa Fun Run – a three kilometre walk/run within Rosalind Park – will begin at 5.30pm and finish at 7pm. Entertainment on the stage will kick off at 7.30pm with Jonathon Ridnell of ABC Central Victoria as compere. Guest performers will include Bendigo’s own Alana and Courtney Conway and the Bendigo Primary School Christmas Choir, as well as a visit from Santa. The tree will be lit up at 9pm.

HEATHCOTE residents will have better access to Bendigo on most Saturdays from now until January 28. The City of Greater Bendigo’s B-Line Transport Connections Project, Heathcote Health and McIvor Neighbourhood House have partnered to introduce a Festive Season Community Transport service. The service will depart at 10am from the old Ampol Roadhouse in Heathcote and will stop at Axedale Uniting Church, The Zone Family Entertainment Centre, Bendigo Bowling Centre, Bendigo Cinemas and the Bendigo Railway Station. The return journey will depart Bendigo Railway Station at 3.15 pm. A $3 booking fee each way is payable and seating is limited. Bookings are essential and can be made by phoning 5431 0930.

climate‘juryout’ By ANTHONY RADFORD

BENDIGO’S next mayor does not believe climate change is manmade, going against the bulk of scientific evidence. Flora Hill Ward councillor Alec Sandner will take over from City of Greater Bendigo Rod Fyffe as mayor on Tuesday. Despite the council having policies in place to help it limit its impact on climate change, Cr Sandner told the Bendigo Weekly “the jury was still out” on the cause of it. “I am aware climate change is taking place, but I am not a supporter of either side of the debate,” he said. “I have studied both sides of the argument, that is it man-

made or naturally occurring, and the jury is still out as far as I am concerned.

“If you look at the evidence rationally, not emotionally, there isn’t enough either way, but it is happening and we have to accept it.” Cr Sandner was addressing the issue of council’s $40 million drainage backlog. He said council had identified the main problems and was working as hard as it could, with as much money as it could, to solve the problems. “If you have 16 millimetres of rain in 16 minutes like we did recently, which is monsoonal rain, we are not geared for it,” he said. Cr Sandner said his 12-month mayoralty, which will lead up to a council election next November, would be the continuation of the current council’s work.

“It will be all about managing growth,” he said. “It is an exciting time in Bendigo, with the hospital and many developments around the city, the car park, the art gallery, the theatre and the Kangaroo Flat Aquatic Centre. In addition to that we also need to focus on our day-to-day activities. “Next year will continue the patterns set in the previous three years,” he said.

Symbolic ending adds new bloom

BENDIGO’S Chinese Precinct redevelopment is finally complete, more than a year after its official opening. Days before last year’s federal election, the precinct was opened amid much fanfare and touting that it was finished “on time and under budget”. The “under budget” part of that statement was made possible because the redevelopment was incomplete, with one of the structures, a pink chrysanthemum, not built. This week, that chrysanthemum, built at a cost of $140,000, was opened, thanks to the State Government. To celebrate, Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Minister Nicholas Katsiras cut the ribbon on the new installation. The third flower in the precinct’s design is significant. Golden Dragon museum general manager Anita Jack said the flowers represented the three philosophies intrin-

sically important in Chinese culture. “These philosophies have shaped Chinese culture for over 2000 years,” she said. “Chinese art is awash with symbolism. Flowers when used in Chinese art form what is almost a language with their rich meanings and interpretations.” The existing red lotus flower is a symbol of summer and is sacred in Buddhist teachings. The gold allium is a type of garlic. The flower was included into the precinct to represent the Taoist religion. The pink chrysanthemum is associated with autumn. “Confucius is said to have made the earliest written reference to the chrysanthemum,” Ms Jack said. “After being cultivated in China these flowers made their way to Japan where they became a national and imperial symbol. “It is a symbol of longevity because of its health-giving properties.”

to move into their own homes. The rebate is dependent on the success of council’s grant application, which was due to be announced this month but now is expected early next year. The project is scheduled for completion mid2014. The completion of this first stage of Integra’s proposed Huntly development will smooth the way for a further 1600 lots being made available for housing in the same area. Ms Mansfield said the development also opens the way for council to lobby for a railway station at Hunty.


HUNTLY will be the new address of “key workers”, under a plan to provide affordable housing for Bendigo’s growing population. The Viewpoint Huntly Residential Project is a partnership instigated by the City of Greater Bendigo council in response to the Federal Government’s Building Better Regional Cities program. Council has applied for $3.88 million, which would provide subsidies for low and medium income people towards the house and land package. The project is in partnership with Ballaratbased land developer Integra Land and will see 800 lots on Sawmill Road between the highway and the railway line fasttracked with infrastruc-

MAKING A POINT: Nurses on the march. Photo: BILL CONROY. More photos at

Battle on for nurses BENDIGO nurses and midwives marched with their families and community supporters yesterday to highlight their campaign to save and improve nurse/midwife patient ratios. The rally began at the Bendigo hospital and marched to the Bendigo Civic Gardens. Bendigo regional Australian Nursing Federation industrial relations organiser Loretta Marchesi said the industrial action was more than just about pay. “We are marching to save and improve our nurse/midwife patient ratios, which are under threat with these negotiations,” she said. “Ratios provide minimum safe staffing levels. It’s disappointing that Health Minister Davis wants to erode the system that has proven to be successful.

“Anyone who has been in hospital in the past 10 years will clearly know ratios allow the nurses to provide high quality care to their patients. Who doesn’t want that?” March organiser and district nurse Maria Mondini said the retention and extension of ratios was a critical is-

each patient,” she said. “Rehabilitation ward ratios are even lower, stretching those nurses to the limit, and there is no mandated method to manage nurses’ workload in many areas such as Hospital in the Home and District Nursing. “Sadly, the employers and

There is no mandated method to manage nurses’ workload in many areas sue for nurses and midwives working in the public hospital system. “While acutely ill patients in the Bendigo hospital currently have an overall level of one nurse for every four patients on the morning shift, this drops in the afternoon and overnight, which means less nursing time available for

government are seeking to abolish mandated ratios altogether, so that there will no longer be a guaranteed level of skilled, professional nursing in our public health sector.” Intensive care nurse Damien Hurrell said the potential loss of ratios was very concerning.


“Research has repeatedly shown that as numbers of highly skilled and professional nurses and midwives are reduced, that more mistakes are made and changes in patients’ conditions may be missed,” he said. “I remember when ratios were first introduced the quality of care provided increased markedly as nurses had time to provide the care patients need and, as a consequence, thousands of nurses returned to the public system. “I am afraid that if guaranteed ratios are lost, we will again see a crisis in this state as nurses and midwives leave the system, with serious consequences for the whole community.” Local nurses, midwives and Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan spoke after the march.

This Weeks Special


Although Cabinet documents are exempt from such requests, the FOI Manager, Andrew Weston, did release part of the document in response to the request. Mr Weston withheld sections of the report, but not on the grounds that it was a “cabinet-inconfidence” document, but rather that those sections would “expose the Department (and potentially the City of Greater Bendigo) to commercial detriment”. Meanwhile, Labor’s Federal Member for Bendigo Steve Gibbons challenged Mr Drum’s assertion that the ball was now in the Federal Government’s court. Mr Gibbons issued a statement saying, “On Monday November 21, I requested that the Parliamentary Secretary for Defence, Senator David Feeney provide the same letter that was received by the former State Government to the Baillieu Government inviting an expression of interest under the current guidelines for the sale of Commonwealth assets”. Unfortunately, that Parliamentary Secretary was the wrong minister. Mr Gibbons followed up a couple of days later to say that, in August, the Special Minister of State Gary Gray, who is also responsible for assets management, had written to the Victorian Government’s Minister for Rural and Regional Development Peter Ryan, advising that the Commonwealth will not offer a concessional priority sale of For-

tuna. This, Mr Gibbons said, did not prevent the state government from “providing an expression of interest for a priority purchase”. That letter, which Mr Gray’s office confirms is commercial-in-confidence, has been quoted (or paraphrased) by both Mr Drum and Mr Gibbons. Mr Gibbons says it confirms the Commonwealth require the Baillieu government to indicate an interest in the property. Mr Drum says the letter “left no doubt that even former Premier Brumby’s Labor mates in Canberra thought this idea would not work… Gary Gray’s letter simply says the Federal Government is not at all interested in that scheme.” Mr Gray’s office, approached early this week to shed some light on this muddle, decided it was “not appropriate” to comment about the commercial-in-confidence letter already quoted and paraphrased by Mr Drum. Nor were they willing or able to respond to the question about the $1 million upkeep bill on the property, because “this is a matter for Defence”. Labor’s Member for Bendigo Jacinta Allan says she will put questions on notice to state parliament next week. Maybe then we will discover if there is a commitment to working with the federal government to support Bendigo’s heritage asset. Don’t hold your breath.

Quality for youth


THE $4.5 million building project for St Luke’s new youth centre is designed to send a strong message to Bendigo’s young people. “We want it to be a well-resourced public space, like a high-quality university,” chief executive officer David Pugh said. “We want to say to our young people, we value you, and we value the journey you are on. “We really want you to have the confidence to use our programs, and to get quality health support from headspace upstairs.” Both Connect Central and headspace (Australia’s National Youth Mental Health Foundation) have been temporarily housed in the Bendigo Library building. St Luke’s project man-

ager Marc Smith said plans have been approved by council, and work will begin shortly on the site at the corner of Mundy and Hargreaves Streets. “The aim is to be in there by August,” Mr Smith said. “This will centralise our youth services to make us a one-stop shop.”

The site is occupied by a former government building which will be redeveloped, and a carpark, which will be taken up to build the new part of the facility. Because it is opposite Bendigo TAFE and near B-Central, Netschool and Community Health Bendigo, Mr Pugh said the new

building will develop the concept of a youth precinct for that part of the city. The project received $2 million funding through the Australian Government’s Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. “This is St Luke’s biggest capital development to date,” Mr Pugh said. “The existing building will cost $1.6 million, and the extension around $3 million so this is a quality purpose-built facility.” Mr Pugh said the colour scheme on the outside of the building will feature the headspace green and the red and gold of the Aboriginal flag. St Luke’s is looking for another similar space for future developments. “We have lots of staff in pokey little spaces throughout the city,” he said.

Mrs Cleary said while the Friends would have liked major work to begin this year, it was also important that people could access the gardens across the holiday period. She paid tribute to councillor Lisa Ruffell, who is a member of the Friends, and who supported them through the campaign for timely implementation of the Master Plan. “You don’t always realise what a treasure you have in a person,” Mrs Cleary said. “She really stuck her neck out for us, and helped us achieve this.”

THE first few times we sit behind the wheel of a car can set the scene for a lifetime of safe motoring, so it is important to get it right from the very beginning. Learner drivers in Bendigo and district now have the opportunity to learn to drive on local roads and without having to travel long distances to access driving instruction. The Gee Tee Driving School offers excellent tuition in state-of -the-art vehicles. Gee Tee has two trained local instructors and with both manual and automatic learner vehicles it will enable learners to gain their important early experience on quiet local roads before venturing into heavier traffic situations. Instructors Gerard and Tony Ellis recently successfully completed extensive Driver Instruction training gaining the much-sought-after Certificate 4 as well as completing the Keys2drive course. As such they are able to carefully prepare learner drivers in readiness for the on-road Drive Test . The keys2drive program is an Australian Government-funded program providing learner drivers and their parents/supervisors a free driving lesson with a keys2drive

accredited professional driving instructor. Gee Tee Driving School can assist you to access this outstanding offer. Gee Tee Driving School will ensure learners are sufficiently confident to undertake the minimum 120 hours logged supervised driving experience prior to the test and can offer advice on how to gain learners permits and restrictions that probationary drivers face in the future. Instructor Gerard Ellis saw the need for a Driving School in the district and believes the opportunity to learn to drive close to home will benefit the whole community. “Driving on local roads under supervision is a great way to start,” Ellis said. “We can graduate to heavier traffic, night driving and driving in all weather conditions, once the basic skills have been gained.” Gee Tee Driving School will also collect students drivers from their school and practise highway driving. “We cover Bendigo plus outlying areas like Heathcote to cater for the extensive demand for driving instruction,” said Ellis. For more information or to book a driving lesson please contact Gerard Ellis on 0418 343 317.

HOUSE THAT: Paul Yamire outside his Kennington home.

Home sweet home By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

WHEN Paul Yamire moved to Bendigo in 2008, he bought a house across the road from the Kennington Oval. “I fell in love with the architecture here,� he says. “It’s so full of history and so much better to live in than cold modern houses.� Just how full of history he discovered one day when he answered a knock on the door. “One of the sisters whose grandfather built

the house was visiting and wanted to see the place and say hello,� Paul says. “I was shocked, but it was good she came by. “It was so clear she has such a warm place in her heart for the house.� The house dates back to the 1900s, when it was built by Alex Dempster as a pub. Alex married Emma Nicholls in 1913, at the Church of Christ in Golden Square, and they lived in that house, where later, after Alex had died, their

grandchildren, Yvonne and Judy would visit. Judy’s letter to Paul, which followed Yvonne’s visit, outlines what life was like in Bendigo during and after the Second World War, when they lived with their grandmother in what is now Paul’s house. “It was a wonderful place to grow up in, with a magical backyard,� she writes. “The bus into Bendigo cost 2 pence each way and the bus driver (Mr Slow) frequently stopped the bus

to kill snakes, which he duly hung over the nearest fence. “We got most of our groceries from Mr and Mrs Ball’s shop on the corner of Sternberg and Mundy streets, a hive of activity in those days.� The house was sold in 1962, when Emma could no longer live there on her own. Paul bought the house from the Cushings, who had called it Allamede, in memory of Alex and Emma Dempster.

Their headquarters are at the Community Safety shed in Hinch Street, Long Gully.

L ETTERS to the editor


Making waves with ...

Bendigo Weekly

Ben Jones and

Anthony Radford

Ben – It’s the local you know, 3BO. Time to make a few waves with the editor of the Bendigo Weekly, Anthony Radford. Radders, the nurses are set to make their point locally on Thursday I understand Anthony – Yes the much-publicised nurses industrial action puts on a Bendigo face on Thursday, with a march from the hospital to the Civic Gardens. The nurses’ claims are not all about pay and conditions, although I believe they should be paid a lot more than they are now. They fear the State Government, and we have seen a fair bit of evidence about this, wants to start messing wit the agreed nurse to patient ratio, which at the moment is one nurse to four patients. They have community support on this one, and I reckon they know it. Ben – Let’s hope that can be resolved as soon as possible. Anytime patient safety is brought into things it is a bit of a worry. We know about the housing boom here in Central Victoria at the moment, especially out Huntly way, with a new large development soon to kick off out there, What’s your take on this? Anthony – This is something that was announced on Monday. Huntly will be the home of a project aimed at putting a dent in Bendigo’s housing affordability issues. This 800-strong housing development will include 60 houses where people will be given a $64,000 grant to help them be able to own their own property. It’s a good idea and maybe there needs to be more of this. I reckon it should be compulsory in all large housing developments in the state. Ben – Look forward to seeing the wash up of that one, Before I let you go, there are a coupe of thinks happening on Friday as far as Christmas is concerned. I’m sure you’re looking forward to the lighting of the Christmas tree? Anthony – Always a popular event this one, and rightly so. It’s early December and that means Christmas lights and decorations. The Rosalind Park tree will be lit on Friday, Santa will be there, there will be activities for the kids and this year there will be a Variety Club Santa fun run, which should be a great sight.

Water is a worry WITH regard to your article ‘Outpouring on drains’ (Bendigo Weekly, November 18) this problem needs to be addressed. My crushed rock driveway has all but been washed into my backyard. The drain at the top of my drive keeps getting blocked and at my age, 72, and suffering from osteoarthritis, I should not have to get down and clean it out. Many a time I have had to wade in my backyard with water nearly up to my knees especially after a heavy rain. The camber of Specimen Hill Road needs to be changed as water doesn’t run up hill, and the road slants to the low side of the above. Beverly Hall, Bendigo

Permission not obtained THE response by Prue Mansfield to comments by James Lerk about the draft Heritage Report in the Bendigo Weekly, November 25, does not adequately address the important issue raised by James. The copyright of local historians is being infringed because the consultants involved in preparing the report did not obtain permission to copy extracts from the work of the historians/copyright holders. The copyright act requires that permission be obtained. Historians and others interested in this matter should read the draft report and download a copy of the Australian Copyright Act 1968 and Amendments, available at click on Commonwealth Resources, then Commonwealth Consolidated Acts, then Acts beginning with C, then Copyright Act 1968. Clauses 31,32,33,36 and 38 of the Act are written in plain English and are relevant here. Having read these documents interested persons can determine for themselves whether there is infringement of copyright. Ralph Birrell, Strathfieldsaye

Leader Tony Abbott. Why is it that every time he and the Liberal Party screams “it’s undemocratic” it is always when they have been outsmarted by this government which is led by a very smart female, like it or not. Which brings me to the context of this discussion. It seems political nous of any consequence is non-existent in the Liberal Party, together with a policy vacuum. We have seen once again Mr Abbott going off his scone, because one of his Coalition members told him what he could do with his party, because of the interference of the Queensland LNP. He then claimed that a sleazy deal had been done by the Labor Party, but Peter had put the slipper under him, because he didn’t know what was going on in his own party. I am sure if the same thing had happened under a Liberal Government, it would have been claimed as a brilliant tactical manoeuvre. The member in question has received the Liberal Party’s support for over a decade, fully aware of his supposed travel expense problems while a Liberal Party member, but Abbott stayed silent. We have seen a politically desperate Mr Abbott pull all the tricks in the book, including not

pairing government members to try and destabilise and bring down the government, and telling all and sundry that he would be in the Lodge by Christmas. People in the real world are tired of his attitude and arrogance, that suggests he and his party have the God-given right to rule our country regardless of whether you have the numbers or not, and suggest that anyone who votes for an alternative party of any kind, has had a lobotomy. Time for a rethink, Tony. Ken Price, Eaglehawk

School has impact IT was a great pleasure to attend the opening of the second and final stage of the redevelopment of Eaglehawk Secondary college last Thursday. Congratulations to Karen Roberts and her team of dedicated staff, the school council and parents for overseeing the rebuilding of the entire school. Already the new school is having an impact with teachers telling me about the difference it is making for students. Eaglehawk is the second school to have its building works finished under a program put in place by the Labor Government to rebuild all four of Bendigo’s junior secondary colleges.

Crusoe College in Kangaroo Flat was completed last year and Bendigo South East and Weroona College are well on the way. As local member, I pushed hard for the funds to build these schools, and I will continue to work hard to support schools in Bendigo. Jacinta Allan Member for Bendigo East

Where is our museum? WHEN I read about the historical society I cannot help but admire them for their attempts to preserve and find a home for Bendigo’s many artifacts. Of course this has been going on for years. Many tourists ask why we do not have a museum like other cities. They would be interested to see our rich and colourful history. It is very discouraging to read that some of our history is to be sold off to preserve it. I suppose that is better than leaving it to deteriorate like Fortuna.

v i e w p o i n t opinion



IF ever you needed an example of why people become cynical about politics, you could do no better than putting up Fortuna Villa in Bendigo as a case in point. It’s not a critical issue, and there are far more important problems confronting our region than what to do with a heritage building. But if we can’t get both sides of politics at state and federal level talking together and nutting out a solution for something this simple, what hope do we have that they can work together on the big issues? We can only now guess at what could be happening on the Chum Street site if there had not been a change of government at last year’s state election. The offer was at least on the table: $7 million towards a plan that would require $10 million from the Federal Government and $3 million from the City of Greater Bendigo to put into action. It was even then a risky proposition, requiring a great number of ifs


Editorial Comment and buts to be sorted through. Now, it seems, those ifs and buts are never to be addressed, as the National’s representative for northern Victoria Damian Drum has declared the plan rubbish. It’s up to the Federal Government to say what they will do with Fortuna, since it’s the Defence Department that owns it, Mr Drum says. Labor’s Steve Gibbons has countered that this is ridiculous. He says any progress on Fortuna requires the Baillieu State Government to make a move one way or another, either saying they do want to buy or not. So, here we are, at a stalemate,

and meanwhile Fortuna Villa, surrounded by barbed wire, and costing $80,000 every month for security and basic upkeep, has been relegated well and truly to the too-hard basket. Is it really this difficult? The Friends of Fortuna’s Patrick Thwaites has devoted his time and energies to putting up a business case for the site, but why a community group is being asked not only to come up with the ideas but also to fund a feasibility study for their plans is another example of the muddled thinking now surrounding the site. The council, understandably perhaps, is keeping a low profile on all this, but maybe they need to show their hand a little more clearly. If they have neither the power nor the means to mediate what has become a stand-off, to find a way to make discussion possible, nothing will happen until one or other side of politics has power both at state and federal level.

Building a framework for change

Opinion by MurrayDarling Basin Authority chairman Craig Knowles. For this plan to work there must be a clear recognition by all that the old way of managing the Murray–Darling Basin has reached its use-by-date. Of course, making the change from the “old way� of managing water to a “new way� involves courage, compromise and is not without risk. To mitigate those risks the path-

way to 2019 has opportunities to monitor, evaluate and adjust. More than “just a number�, the plan gives a real opportunity to see how the basin is performing, and to make adjustments along the way. The pathway to 2019 should be supported by all. It allows an opportunity to bring into play infrastructure and environmental works and measures and time for governments to review the rule books and management frameworks to use water wisely. And it allows communities to further develop their abilities to play an active role in the decisions about how their catchment is managed and how water for the environment is used. Done properly, the pathway to 2019 will take us from the “old way� of managing to the “new way� with the least amount of impact and the best chance for a high degree of community ownership in a healthy working Basin. In the end, this plan must become a plan which can be embraced and accepted by the broader community. That will take time and it will take patience. Most of all it will require people to travel the pathway looking forwards not backwards.

Choose wisely, choose SUNERGY


THE draft Basin Plan represents one more step in the ongoing journey of managing our rivers. This plan is not about returning the rivers to their natural state. It’s about finding the optimal balance between the environment, economies and communities – not settling for the lowest common denominator but building a framework for change to provide, for the long term, a healthy working basin. In recent months, we’ve watched as the debates calling for more or less water to be returned to the environment have increased in intensity. It’s very clear that we have state governments with differing views, we have conservation groups asking for more, farmers and irrigators calling for less. And scientists want more science. But we simply can’t go on managing the Murray–Darling Basin as if it were a tug-of-war. In the end, everyone pulling in opposite directions gets us all exactly nowhere. That’s why we are proposing to build a pathway to 2019. It’s a pathway we should all be able to walk along, exploring the opportunities together, learning, adapting and adjusting. We have to make a start and we have to agree to do this together.

Red letter day

A MONSTER annual Christmas sale to be held at Mandurang Valley Wines on Sunday will see a wide range of goods on offer. Baked Christmas cakes and puddings, panforte and shortbread. Preserves of jams, jellies, sauces and chutneys. There will be all types of plants; kitchen garden herbs, vegetables, topiaries, succulents and, red geraniums. And that’s how the group behind this monster sale settled on their unusual name, ...and the Red Geranium inc., the geraniums always tend to be tagged on the end of their impressive list of produce. Group member Roz Effenberg says: “It’s a bit like the Partridge and the Pear Tree, we have this and that, and red geraniums. “It also typifies our group.

break a bit off and pass it on to someone else. This is what our group does, we share our garden cuttings and produce and pass them onto others,” Roz said. The not-for-profit group began in 2000, raising money for the local community and after only two fundraisers each, they year have donated in excess of $166,000. About 20 members tend the plants and cook throughout the year but on Sunday it will be all hands on deck with family and friends enlisted to help. “Sixty-four volunteers will manage roles from traffic controllers to sausage cooks.” Roz said. Much like the geraniums, the Christmas sale has flourished. In 2000, after only a couple of months work, it resulted in the grand total of $1,500, escalating to $11,000 in 2001 and ten years later, the 2010 sale raised $30,000 for three Bendigo causes. This year the proceeds are earmarked for the Bendigo Hospice and the Bendigo arm of YWCA Encore and the Bendigo Health Foundation which receives ongoing funds each year. Application forms for funding from the ...and the Red Greanium group will be available at the sale or via email request; Sunday’s sale will feature music, Devonshire teas, barbecue, raffle, children’s stories and face painting.

MORE than 400 blokes enjoyed an afternoon of fun with a serious message under a large marquee last Friday. Even the poor weather couldn’t put a dampener on the Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch in Sidney Myer Place, an event raising money for prostate cancer research and highlighting the importance of regular prostate checks. Event organiser and Bendigo Weekly chairman Keith Sutherland said the event, in its second year, was a success. “The day was a huge success raising $65,000 from ticket sales, auction and raffle items,� he said. “The men seemed to get into the spirit of the day with very strong bidding on many lots. “The most expensive item sold was the MyJet package, being a unique jet and golf experience to Yarrawonga for eight people, which sold for $4,500. �Most of the funds go to the prostate cancer Foundation of Australia. These funds help research, raise awareness and provide support, information and advocacy to affected men and their families.�

Money also went to the local Lions Club, local prostate cancer support group and the Girls Night In breast cancer fundraising committee, who all assisted on the day. “The most important message from the day was that the men were talking about their own health, and the importance of having regular prostate cancer checks,� Mr Sutherland said. “That message was presented by local urologist Stephen Lindsay and backed up by local John Brewin who spoke of his personal experience.� Mr Sutherland thanked everyone involved, particularly the major sponsors as without their support, the event could not have happened. He also thanked WIN TV and the Weekly for their publicity, also the staff and directors of the Weekly for supporting the fundraising event. “I am confident that next year’s event should be able to attract 500 men, as the feedback on the day was extremely positive and already some sponsors said that they are on board,� he said. “This was a fantastic outcome, and I was overwhelmed by the goodwill and support shown by everyone.�

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, December 2, 2011

Bidding to make a change Last Friday was big. The Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch and White Ribbon Day were both spreading the word.

IT happens in films and comedy skits, and it’s finally happened to me. I was at the Biggest Ever Blokes Lunch last Friday and was taken up in the excitement of it all. A few drinks, a burger or two and a chunk of chicken caveman style and I was having a whale of a time. The speeches and games had happened, Nick from work had woken up after his afternoon nap, and all was set for the auction. It was a fundraiser for prostate cancer research after all. The bidding was frantic and generous, and all items went beyond the suggested value. One was hovering around the $1000 mark and I was distracted by an empty beer bottle. Mine. Luckily I saw Ashleigh weaving through the tables clutching a few bottles of joy. I waved to gain her attention. “Thanks Steve, the bid is now at $1200,” said auctioneer Keith Sutherland. Ouch, thankfully my negative response showed I had bid in error and I managed to extricate myself from a costly mistake. But how silly to fall for that one, after all of the movies it happens in. I was too shocked to have a beer for a while, and laughed it off as if I had done it for a joke. Bloody idiot.


I have no idea what I nearly bought, could have been a set of golf clubs for all I know. That would have been a real waste, as I can’t play, and have no desire to. May have had to take it up for a good cause. Talking of good causes, along with the prostate cancer awareness fundraiser, Friday was big for another reason. It was White Ribbon Day. It is a valid project to highlight domestic violence and reduce, if not stop, violence against women. It aims to bring out in the open the horrors and incidence of unacceptable violence, and to encourage respect for women. They are on to a winner, because who could disagree with the cause? Certainly not me. I do disagree with the tactic of asking men to sign a pledge not to hit women. I actually find it offensive for someone to consider I am capable of the act and want to bind me to a promise. Anyone who bashes their wife would sign and break the pledge, and the majority, myself included,

wouldn’t dream of it anyway. I find the whole pledge idea pointless and mere tokenism. Except of course to raise awareness of the cause, which it has done. Congratulations. I think the white ribbon focus needs to shift a bit. Alongside the current message, parents need to be telling their children violence is not an option in life.

It’s too late to tell an adult not to harm his wife. By then it’s a deep-rooted problem that may have been there since youth. Parents must tell their children it’s not OK to hit someone, to harm an animal, or call someone a name just because they are from another country. Teach them to respect everyone equally. Make bigotry and misogyny ta-

boo subjects and respect of others as a matter of course. To force innocent people to sign a pledge against something so outlandish would not be needed, if the situation was not allowed to rise in the first place. It needs to be on the school agenda, and on the agenda of every parent, grandparent, carer, teacher and anyone who has an input into the social education of our young.

THE inaugural Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival laid it on in magnificent style, catering for music lovers of all ages and musical tastes, marking Bendigo as a premier musical city. From Thursday’s launch party held at the Gold Dust Lounge, right through to Sunday evening, our city was ringing with glorious music, and while adhering to the blues and roots label, it encompassed a deliciously overwhelming array of musical styles. Try this on for musical diversity: we experienced the rustic acoustic blues of Archer, Dave Diprose and Alawishus Jones, explosive hard edged rock and blues from the likes of the Black Aces, Jackson Firebird, the Andrew Higgs Band, Soundhole and the Vagrants, soul fans had their appetites sated by class acts Soul Child, Josh Owen and Taylor Sheridan, while those seeking some exquisitely folk tinged material were treated to sublime performances from Alanna and Alicia Egan and Michelle Meehan. Not being light on in attracting big name acts on the blues and roots scene such as Geoff Achison, Lloyd Spiegel, Pete Cornelius and the Devilles, the Andrea Marr Band, Jungal, Nick

Chemistry in Rochester

10:30am–1:30pm FREE FAMILY EVENT

Rochester Community House Cnr Mackay & Campaspe Streets, Rochester in collaboration with the Rochester Community Festival Andrea Marr Barker and Shaun Kirk was a mighty accomplishment for any festival in its first year, and speaks volumes for the faith that is being invested by elite performers in the future of Bendigo’s very own music festival. While there was rain for Saturday’s showpiece concert in Rosalind Park, it did nothing to dampen the spirits of musical die-hards who rapturously enjoyed a seamlessly run event. Class acts, a great sound, lots of smiling faces and a genuine sense of


musical finds. Personal highlights for this reviewer include Sweet Baby James and Rob Eyers from Adelaide, regular Bendigo visitor raucous Bones Blackwood, the gorgeous Alanna and Alicia Egan, Genevieve Chadwick, whose performance style is pure dynamite, that freakish force of nature Shaun Kirk and the incomprable queen of the blues, Andrea Marr.

It’s basically Howling Bells on wheels. “Unfortunately we don’t get hotels a lot on this tour because there’s so much driving to do and we’re doing everything ourselves,” Stein says. “A lot of the shows we just walk off the stage and get straight into the van and start driving to the next town.

communal energy saw the concert exceed all expectations. For me, the real beauty of an event such as this is the breaking down of musical boundaries and live music being laid out for those that are unaware, or uninformed, as to what is so readily available to them. It’s a beautiful thing to see fans of music styles far removed from the blues and roots scene attend gigs throughout the festival and rave excitably about new

course towards the darker arts, after leaving the sunny pop days of Waikiki far behind in 2004. “People change... it’s the same kind of evolution with musicians, you’re inspired by different things,” Stein says. For evidence, consider the relative light and fluffy Here Comes September of Waikiki with the impending Holocaust feel of Cities Burning Down off Radio Wars. So like band names and alternating styles, the lot of a band on the periphery of big-time fame, can be topsy turvy: Howling Bells are a perfect example. Having just walked off

HOWLING Bells are coming home. Alas, it’s not a permanent shift from their UK base, rather a brief reconnect with local fans to spruik their third record, The Loudest Engine. Like the previous two LPs, Howling Bells (Liverpool) and Radio Wars, TLE was recorded and produced overseas, this time in Las Vegas by friend Mark Stoermer, of The Killers fame. “We made it without a record label, so it was a priority to do it on the cheap,” lead singer Juanita Stein says. TLE maintains the band’s

Families to get into the spirit


Light the Tree

The gold rush was the starting point, of the place that we call home, They came in search of fortune, from far away they roamed. Life was hard, in cold and rain, in dusty times and drought. They settled here, they made a town, we’re glad they stuck it out. Bendigo, the place we know, the place we know and love Where families and friendships fit like a hand inside a glove. Happy people, friendly folk, ready with a smile, Nothing’s very far away, good living, country style.


HRISTMAS is coming, so to get into the festive season spirit in Bendigo, get down to the Christmas tree lighting tonight with a host of family-friendly activities. Bring a rug and a picnic tea, sit back, relax and enjoy the evening’s entertainment as Rosalind Park comes alive from 6pm with local roving characters, the Bendigo Health fundraising carnival and Variety, the children’s charity, Santa Fun Run. ABC Radio personality Jonathan Ridnall will be compering the staged entertainment from 7.30pm to 9pm in the lead up to the lighting of the tree around 9pm. At 7:30pm enjoy live stage performances with Alana and Courtney Conway and the Bendigo Primary School Christmas Choir. The grand finale for the evening be the turning on of the lights of the Christmas tree at around 9pm. So you can participate in the evening’s festivities, the words and verses of two of the songs are reproduced on the right, so you can join in.

We’re bigger than a country town, much bigger – than Shelbourne, But smaller than the big smoke, much smaller – than Melbourne. We have here all the things we need, and all the things we like. You can walk down to the heart of town or get there on your bike. CHORUS The fountain is the central point, the place where main roads meet, It was made in 1881, and is found near Mitchell Street. The QEO in Bendigo is very well renowned, The citizens from far and wide know that it’s our sporting ground.

Light the tree, friends and dear ones will Love to see, they will thrill to the sights and the Sounds of the city, it’s Christmas time in our town. (Christmas is here) Christmas is here! Light the tree, come together with family, There’s wonder and magic to see In our city, it’s Christmas time in our town. The faces of the children glow brightly, Reflecting excitement, And longing for the day to draw near…. See the child in the faces of those who are older, Who otherwise, world-weary tread through their lives. Take the hand, of the children Recall a time, of joy and contentment You’ll find, in the city, When it’s Christmas time in our town, Christmas time in our town. Gail Godber © 2008

CHORUS At the information centre they’ll tell you where to go The poppet head, the Shamrock, are big in Bendigo, The Central Deborah Goldmine, the very first Myer store, The Goldfields library, Chinese Museum, and restaurants galore. CHORUS When you come to Bendigo you’ll have a brilliant time, The place is steeped in history and the food is just divine, You’ll meet terrific people, and see amazing things, Some day soon you’ll come right back to do it all again.

THERE were three industrial structures that dominated Irishtown, largely because they were physically so prominent, on this relatively flat area which had been denuded of trees in the early 1850s. Towering above the tents, huts, simple slab structures and small weatherboard cottages was the Bendigo Gas Company Works with its very tall octagonal brick chimney. The gasworks could be spotted kilometres away from up the valley of the Bendigo Creek and Bendigo Flat. Even the retort building of the gas works, very different from what is on the site today, was considered at the time to be a large structure, it too having been built of brick. There were, in the late 1850s, very few brick buildings to be found in Irishtown. The gasworks was to have a number of rebuilds and expansions during the time the site was used. Irishtown residents slowly incorporated chimneys built of brick for their homes if they could be afforded, otherwise simple stone fire places or self-made mud bricks had to suffice. Even the hotels and

PROMINENT: Andrew Thunder’s brewery in Irishtown.


JAMES LERK stores of Irishtown were not elaborate in their construction, but they served this poor community well. The bakers of Irishtown had their brick ovens, but the bakeries themselves were of weatherboard. It was not until the turn of the 20th century that bakers built their whole business and manufacturing buildings entirely of brick. The second indus-

trial site was that of the Tyson’s Reef Mine, which was located on the north side of Thunder Street, between Bakewell and Caledonia streets. This mine was one of the early ones to have a steam-powered plant, culminating in a 22.2-metretall round brick chimney from the boiler house. There were two boilers each 5.48 metres in length, a 39.6 metre flue from the boiler house ran up the hill where the chimney was located, giving it a good foundation. According to JN

Macartney, mining corespondent, the quartz of Tyson’s Reef was first worked in 1855, and great results were obtained from it. So much so that investors were keen to develop its gold resources at depth and they invested in steam machinery made by McLennan and Co of Glasgow. Joseph Butler, the engineer in charge of the construction, was justly proud of the plant erected in April and May 1859. The Tyson’s Reef Mine worked, off and on, right




Our final milestone of 2,500 is fast approaching

into the 20th century. Some of the financiers behind the project were Messrs England, Snowdon, Rutherford, Story, Holmes, Robinson, Myers and English. There were other less significant mines in Irishtown, but alluvial activity continued right into the 1890s. As there was still alluvial activity in the area it meant that the street gutters were not shallow as they are today, but deep open channels. The crossing for the channel opposite the gas works outside Mr C Walter’s shop, was the cause of complaint in 1890, by Joseph Vance. Vance let the council know that a portion of the timber had been torn away, making it dangerous for pedestrians in daylight or dark. The third dominant building complex in Irishtown was that of Andrew Thunder’s Brewery, located in the area bounded by Lucan and Harney streets. A portion of the sandstone wall of this onceimpressive structure can still be seen on the footpath fence line in Harney Street. Thunder was the first to introduce ice making into the brewery process in the Australian colonies.

Kevin Probert back on the team

Taking insurance into mind

The Occupational health and Safety Act has certainly changed our thinking in meeting our duty of care, and understanding responsibilities in the workplace, placing duties on manufacturers and suppliers, workplace management and workers alike. It is commonplace to have a disclaimer on how products and equipment are to be used in a safe manner. employers are to provide for employees, so far as is reasonably practicable, a workplace without risk to health and safety. employees are asked to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their behaviours in the workplace. Welfare is also a major consideration as part of the Act’s intention. There are workplace insurance premiums required to be paid and, like most insurance policies, claim and no claim bonus or penalties apply to employers that remain accident free. Cycling insurance is a consideration for the protection of prized assets. Full carbon bike and wheels that can equate to a third of the cost of a new car. Insurance cover for

The Bendigo Braves have locked in their core group of last season with the re-signing of Kevin Probert. The 23-year-old Probert had a breakout year last season, averaging 9.4 points and 4.5 assists per game and collecting a Player of the Week award in Week 10, together with his Australian Youth Player of the Year Award for the east Conference. Braves coach Ben harvey was pleased to have Probert back on board. “Kevin stepped up for us last season so I will be looking for him to build on that heading into next season and increase his on-court leadership directing the team from the point,” he said. Bendigo Brave Chris Novak has also re-signed with the club for season 2012. The 202cm SeABL veteran of over 250 games, clocked up his 200th with the Braves last season, and he joins new recruit, 203cm forward Tom Garlepp, a proven SeABL performer, who averaged 16.4 points and nine rebounds for Sandringham last season. Currently on the roster of NBL team Gold Coast Blaze, Garlepp has also played for the Perth Wildcats and Adelaide 36ers. Garlepp could miss the start of the season, depend-

accidents will reveal that at some point common sense was forgotten and focus on the task at hand was momentarily lost. There are simple things to consider – is your bike in a good roadworthy condition? Are the tyres in reasonable condition and at the correct pressure for the riding conditions? Does your helmet fit correctly and is it in good condition, kept clean and stored in a cool, dry, sunfree location? Where you place yourself on the road, making your actions predictable and allowing yourself to be seen with clothing and lighting alike, is a form of insurance. There are so many contributing aspects in cycling that are our responsibility. Regularly washing our bike can reveal any changes in the frame structure or wheels, and is a good time to check on wear and tear of components such as brakes. While not all these will stop accidents, they certainly go a long way for us to develop respect of our own safety and that of others we share the road with. Looking forward to seeing you on the road soon, God willing.

She was chosen from more than 1600 applicants, and underwent intensive training in the skills they will need to service the world’s tennis stars when the Australian Open starts on January 18. Applicants were tested on their fitness, ball skills and


ing if the Blaze qualify for the finals. Meanwhile Bendigo junior Lucy Spalding has returned to the area after 12 months working with underprivileged children. She has signed with the

Bendigo Lady Braves. Spalding joins Sarah Strange as another Bendigo Brave junior returning to the club for next year. Training starts in January with the season tipping off in March.

Other winners were Andrew Campbell (A Grade), Sterl Wrigley (B Grade), C.

Round 5

WHAT a start to Round Five, or should we say false start, as no First Division games got under way due to the weather, so all games now revert to one-day games this Saturday. Maiden Gully takes on Axe Creek, and will be hoping for another good start from Mark Smith and Leigh Draper, and that Brett Haw and David Becker can take early wickets, while Axe Creek will also be looking for leaders Jamie Morgan and Travis Nolan to continue their good early season form.

Golden Gully will be looking for early wickets from Brad Webster and Seb Olle, and plenty of runs from Brendon Lummis and Jeremy Rogerson when they take on Emu Creek, led by Simon Marwood and Leigh Byrne. Spring Gully will be looking to bring up their first victory of the season and climb into the top four as it makes the trip to Marong. The visitors will be hoping Ricky Mannix can continue his recent form with the bat and Nick Manley can get some

early wickets against a Marong side boasting the talents of the Ross brothers and Richard Murphy, who are all well suited to the one-day format. Sedgwick is at home to West Bendigo and will be looking to Scott McKenzie and Alan Friswell to lead the way against a West Bendigo line-up that has Ken Bell, Travis O’Connell and Glen Wallis, who all have a strong influence with both bat and ball. In the final game of the round, Mandurang is at home

to United which should be an absolute cracker of a game with both sides starting the season with some impressive performances. Mandurang boasts one of the most talented line-ups in the competition, led by the batting dynamo Matt Giri and the versatile all-rounder in Leigh Haw, while United has powerful all-rounder Alex Collins in good form with support from Forbes Klemm and Josh White, so this game should go right down to the wire.

brand new strip at Tannery Lane, and the extremely poor weather. “Not one game was played in any association through Bendigo for the afternoon,” Yates said. “Given rain at that time, that the town knew was coming, but the umpires’ further desire to push through what were already wet conditions under foot, and then wet conditions during the actual play, is also concerning. “Having a new deck with full grass cover may have hidden the wet areas which may highlight the lack of knowledge on pitch conditions from the umpires.” However, BDCA president Wayne Walsh said the decision was made for the good of the game. “We made the decision for the betterment of cricket,” he said. “The board has the right to make these decisions, it’s in the rule book under General Provisions.” Rule 1.7 of the BDCA rule book states: “Subject to the approval of the Board, if necessary, alter the program in respect of dates, grounds or times, for commencing or continuing any match”.

Cricket official cries foul over midway rule change

A CRICKET Victoria official believes a dangerous precedent has been set after the Bendigo and District Cricket Association overturned a rule midway through Round Six on Tuesday night. “It creates a rod for their back,” Cricket Victoria umpiring manager Bob Parr said. Only one game began in either A or B Grade level on Saturday, a fixture between Strathfieldsaye and Sandhurst, where 32 overs were bowled. With play abandoned with the Jets sitting at a precarious 5/49, the match, and all other B Grade games, reverted to ordinary conditions, under rule 4.5 of the BDCA. However, that rule was overturned on Tuesday night, allowing all other B Grade fixtures to be played as one-day games. While BDCA president Wayne Walsh said the decision was for the “betterment of cricket”, it’s drawn the ire of Strathfieldsaye president Brent Yates, who was informed of the decision via email. “There are a number of areas that have concerned us,” he said. “(A) lack of communication to both Sandhurst and Strath-

v West Bendigo

However, it makes no mention of changing the dynamics of matches. While Walsh said the board had not been pressured into its unanimous decision from any of the B Grade teams, he admitted some would see a dangerous precedent had been set. “Some would say yes,” Walsh said. “Some teams might decide not to play one particular week and opt for a one-day game the following week.” Walsh admitted the BDCA rule book would need to be closely scrutinised. “We may need to re-look at our rules,” he said. “Perhaps when a certain percentage of games are washed out, we cancel the entire round.” BDCA secretary John Hecker said the rule would not be removed but given more flexibility. “We’ve acted in the best interests of the competition,” he said.

This is the first in a series of columns on the NBN4Bendigo campaign, generously supported by the Bendigo Weekly.

What is the National Broadband Network? (NBN) The NBN is a new, wholesale-only, highspeed broadband network that will deliver super fast broadband to all Australians. It is planned for rollout over the next ten years. Fibre optic cabling will be installed to 93% of Australian homes, schools and businesses. Speeds up to 1 gigabit per second mean downloading a movJe in 1 minute instead of over 8 hours! The remaining 7% will be connected via a combination of next-generation high-speed fixed wireless and satellite technologies, with speeds up to 40 megabits per second.

Who is NBN4Bendigo? We are a working group representing Regional Development Australia, City of Greater Bendigo, Bendigo Community Telco, Community Telco Australia, Bendigo Business Council, La Trobe University, Bendigo TAFE, Bendigo Health and the Loddon Mallee Rural Health Alliance. This group, and others across the region, have joined forces to secure early rollout of the NBN in Bendigo and the Loddon Mallee region. To do this, we aim to have Bendigo moved to the top of the next NBNCo city list, to be published in February 2012. I urge you to get behind the campaign and register your support for early rollout in Bendigo at:

Spirit lacking

Harrower questions team performance after loss


DOES the Bendigo Spirit have the grunt to overcome an ordinary start to the WNBL season? Spirit star point guard Kristi Harrower has been pondering that question this week, as the seventh-placed Spirit face the AIS this Sunday, and an increasingly tough run home. Harrower, admittedly a player who suffers from “white line fever”, has questioned whether some of her team mates were happy to just coast along as their season continued to slip away. “If somebody beats me, that makes me angry, even if it’s just at training, and I pick up my intensity,” Harrower said. “I don’t know if we have players like that. “I think that sometimes we have people who just go through the motions. “Other people... just don’t show any emotion, where I do.” After a nine-point loss to Dandenong on Saturday, Harrower said the Spirit

She hopes to be back to full fitness after Christmas. “I don’t know when I’ll be back to 100 per cent.” She said the conjecture about her position as general manager had no bearing on the team. “I don’t talk about it with the girls,” she said. “It shouldn’t (affect results), it’s nothing for them to worry about. “Whatever happens, I’ll make the best decision for myself.”
