Thieves ransack tram history THIEVES have ransacked five of Bendigo’s iconic heritage trams. Bendigo Tramways crews have been left disheartened after discovering the trams, which were housed at the Gas Works, were burgled on October 29. One of the trams affected was the restaurant tram Ninesevensix, with 24 items being taken from the trams overall. The shameless thieves had an eye for polished brass, carefully removing controller handles, conductor bells and brackets. Alcohol and CD players were also among the stolen goods. “Among the trams which had their controller handles stolen were tram No’s 5 and 7, both of which were original features from when the trams were built in 1913 and 1917 respectively,” BT manager Jos Duivenvoorden said. “The controller handles share the story of each of these trams and have travelled the tracks to Eaglehawk, Golden Square and Spring Gully, used by every person who has ever driven them.

BENDIGO is unprepared for this year’s fire season, despite predictions it could be one of the region’s worst. Heavy rains have left most of Victoria lush, with spring growth flourishing around Central Victoria. Despite the obvious risk, and terrible recent history, locals have failed to attend recent CFA Fire Ready meetings. CFA Loddon Mallee Region Community Education co-ordinator Paul Tangey said the community was not ready.

Residents unprepared for season

“People are being complacent, very complacent,” he said. “They are thinking it has happened here it won’t happen again. “That is dangerous thinking.” Mr Tangey said some places in the region were aware of the dangers, but most weren’t. Recent meetings in Mandurang and Heathcote attracted strong crowds, yet only five people attend-

ed a Fire Ready meeting at Kangaroo Flat and none at Wedderburn. “There are very, very complacent areas in our region,” Mr Tangey said. “The further out of the urban areas the more people are getting to the meetings. “They take responsibility for what needs to be done. “The complacency grows the closer you get to urban areas.

“They think it won’t affect them.” CFA State Duty Officer Craig Brownlie said locals had to be aware. “We live in one of the most fire-prone regions in the world and it only takes weeks or even days of hot, dry and windy weather to create dangerous fire conditions,” he said. Mr Brownlie said favourable growing conditions across Victoria

in 2011 promoted an above-average grassfire risk this fire season. “Grassfires should not be underestimated; they can be extremely dangerous and cause death, trauma or serious injury,” he said. “Now is the time to protect your home and property by slashing, mowing, grazing, spraying and using herbicide, and creating fuel breaks by removing all fuel (vegetation) down to the soil.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 11, 2011

Three-day plan remains despite concerns from the community

Festival plan firm

CONTROVERSIAL changes to the Bendigo Easter Festival will definitely go ahead next year. Late last month, www.bendigoweekly.com.au revealed rising costs and a dwindling list of volunteers had forced the festival to be cut back to three days – Good Friday and Easter Saturday and Sunday, with the gala parade on Sunday. However, the move raised the ire of some stakeholders, including the pipe and brass bands, who compete at national tournaments over the Easter weekend. They wanted the parade to stay on Monday, with the festival to begin on Saturday. A meeting last week between the festival committee and the bands resulted in a review of the plans. However, the festival committee this week decided to stick with its original three days. Committee chairman and City of Greater Bendigo mayor Rod Fyffe announced the decision on Wednesday. “While the BEF have taken on board the concerns of the bands, the committee has voted to uphold the earlier decision,” Cr Fyffe said. “We will undertake a comprehensive review at the end of the 2012 festival to see if the new format has been successful.” Leader of the bands’ cam-

Christian community and acknowledged the spirit and tradition that has built and continues to sustain the Easter Festival. “Overwhelmingly the community, as the festival’s major stakeholder, has shown spirit and conviction in supporting the campaign that would have allowed maximum opportunities for participation with the gala parade on Easter Monday and the torchlight procession on Easter Sunday.” Mr Earl said the campaign to hold the parade on Monday would continue. “The success of any festival is community involvement that showcases and celebrates the achievements, talents and culture of the community to tourists seeking a taste of Bendigo,” he said. “Sadly, that will now be more difficult, and probably more costly, to achieve at future Bendigo Easter Festivals under the committee’s decision. “We hope that time and wisdom will see the councilappointed committee revert to a more traditional format following the next scheduled review after the 2012 festival.”

THE criminal case against the two teenage boys accused of lighting Bendigo’s fatal Black Saturday fire has been dropped. In a special hearing this week, the Director of Public Prosecutions informed the Victorian Supreme Court that it is not in the public interest to proceed. The announcement came as no surprise, given the two boys, aged 13 and 14 at the time, were found unfit for trial in August. A spokesperson for the DPP released the news “The Director of Public Prosecutions John Champion has announced a discontinuance in the prosecution

of two boys, aged 15 and 16, who were accused of arson causing death and intentionally or recklessly causing a bushfire on Black Saturday in which a 47-year-old man died,” he said “A Supreme Court jury found in August that the teenagers were unfit to be tried due to their intellectual disabilities. “The DPP subsequently considered the state of the evidence and the circumstances of the offenders and came to the view that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction, nor was it in the public interest to proceed with the prosecution.”

The news was met with outrage from the family members of Mick Kane, who died in the blaze. West Bendigo locals also

expressed their anger. However, the decision was almost a given after a jury found the pair unfit to plea in August.

A jury, police prosecutors, the judge, defence lawyers and experts all agreed on August 8 the boys met just one of about six criteria people need to meet before they are capable of standing trial. Both boys have an IQ of 56, with anything below 70 being classed as having an intellectual disability. Experts said the boys had the intelligence of an average eight year old, something that is unlikely to improve. They were unable to enter a plea to the charg-

es and challenge the jury, unable to understand the nature of the trial, unable to understand the substantial effect of any evidence that may be given in support of the prosecution, and unable to give instructions to their lawyers, the court found. The fire swept through Maiden Gully and Long Gully on the edge of Bendigo, destroying 58 homes. Mr Kane, 47, who was confined to a wheelchair, was unable to escape and died in the fire. There is hope the Coroner will investigate Mr Kane’s death, although it has no criminal bearing.

REDUCING the rubbish at St Francis of the Fields is not a new thing. They’ve been on a waste-reduction kick since the school opened in 1994. But now they have the chance to show off their efforts, and to show others how it’s done. The Strathfieldsaye primary school has signed up for the Planet Ark National Recycling Week challenge, with a program to encourage recycling-themed lessons. “We had no problems introducing a no-waste policy right from the start,” librarian Margaret Hand said. “Everyone has embraced it, and we’ve reduced waste by 60 per cent, even while our enrolments have increased and we have also had more events at the school. “The bottom line is, we save money too.” Mrs Hand said the key to getting everyone on board a no-waste policy was to build it into the curriculum. “It wasn’t cold turkey for us,” she said. “We made sure we warmed up to it, building towards the policy. “We had trial days, and through that, the students realised they could do it. “The idea is to make sure students understand why they are doing it, so they are happy to be part of it. “Take an authoritative approach, and the kids will only resent it.”

Residents ‘not fire ready’ 3From Page 1 “Living in a grassland area with dried-out brown or golden-coloured grass that is over 10cm high is a bushfire risk.” The Fire Ready meetings have changed format this year, becoming more of a question and answer session, rather than a lecture. The meetings also focus on the House Bushfire Assessment service. For information on how to prepare for the fire season, download a Fire Ready Kit, complete the Household Bushfire Self Assessment or find the location of Fire Ready meetings in your area at www.cfa.vic. gov.au or call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667.

High-speed chase LOCAL content offered by Bendigo IPTV, a web-based local television service, is set to boom when faster, cheaper broadband arrives with the National Broadband Network. Denis English, executive director of Media Corp, the television production agency producing Bendigo IPTV, said the rapidly emerging web technology enabled them to bring back a level of local TV style programming to Bendigo and Central Victoria. “We are focused on connecting with our community, that is why an early rollout of NBN in Bendigo is so important for us,” he said. “It will allow us to connect to the entire community and achieve the growth needed to provide expanded local programing.”

Bendigo IPTV’s commercial content and local programs are designed to fill a gap in local TV programming and is currently delivering download free to Telstra customers

We are focused on connecting with our community with a web connection. A group of local business people is campaigning to have the NBN delivered to Bendigo sooner than planned. NBN4Bendigo consultant and IPTV director Margaret O’Rourke is well aware of

the potential opportunities affordable broadband will bring to the IPTV industry. “The NBN is set to transform this business,” she said. “IPTV currently recommends ADSL2 broadband for optimum performance, but not everyone can access this. “NBN will mean everyone can experience Bendigo IPTV.” The working group is developing a business case to convince NBNCo and the Federal Government that the Bendigo region is ready for the NBN and needs to be included in the next rollout list, to be announced in February. Residents, businesses and organisations can register their support by visiting www. nbn4bendigo.com.au or visiting the group’s site on facebook.

Council waives parking needs for art expansion

Gallery go-ahead By BEN CAMERON

THE City of Greater Bendigo council has given itself a waiver of more than 130 car parks for the $8 million Bendigo Art Gallery expansion. Council approved the expansion on Wednesday night, and construction will begin in June. Council’s own policies state such an expansion needs to be accompanied by more than 130 new car parks. However, council will build only 14 new spaces. Any waivers of car parking usually brings with it a fee to council for future car parking developments. A report commissioned by council states most of the time, an extra 11 spaces will be needed, with 45 for blockbuster events.

NEW LOOK: An artist’s impression of some of the proposed works.

There are 124 car parking spaces at the rear of the gallery, and council will use a Traffic Management Plan to address any parking problems. North West Plains Ward councillor Bruce Phillips said he could not foresee any problems with a car park waiver.

“The expansion of the gallery will have a negligible effect on patronage,” he said. “The demand for parking is unlikely to change.” City Futures director Stan Liacos said tenders will go out early next year and the project will take 14 months to construct.

“We’re planning for a late June commencement, to slot it between the end of the Grace Kelly exhibition, and the next blockbuster event which I can’t reveal just yet,” he said. While much of the net 417 square metre expansion will be used for storage and loading facilities, it also consists of a 605 square metre Park Gallery, 67 square metre Pavilion Gallery and 106 square Front of House. Eaglehawk Ward councillor Peter Cox had concerns about $300,000 of the project being used for changes to car parking at the rear, and combined with works at the new Edwards Street car park, $1 million worth of works will come out of next year’s capital works budget. “That’s quite a significant amount,” he said.

No cuts as surgery supports Bendimo

POLICE INVESTIGATE SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTORIAN Police’s Sexual Crimes Unit is investigating an alleged sexual assault in Strathdale’s Sibley Place on Saturday. The Bendigo Weekly was informed by a nearby resident a property was taped off by police early Saturday morning. Police have refused to release any more details and charges have not yet been laid.

LOOKING AT SUSTAINABILITY THE Bendigo Sustainability Group will hold its latest round of community leadership seminars on sustainable living. Held at Goldmines on Friday, November 18, Glen Ballinger will deliver a talk on “reducing food miles” and illustrate how his business, Maldon 50K Local, is providing fresh alternatives for local produce. A free Community Celebration of Sustainability day will also be held at Crook Street Park on Sunday November 20 from 10am to 3pm, including live entertainment, gardening workshops with Costa Georgiadis, cooking demonstrations and a fashion parade. There will also be a Sustainable Living Market, and the annual general meeting of the BSP will be held.

MARKET FOR KIDS STRATHFIELDSAYE Primary is holding a Kids’ Market tomorrow. With a jumping castle and a junior master chef, the market will also have 25 stalls of local businesses. The market, which runs from 9am to 2pm, features halfhourly dance classes.

LEARNING CENTRE BOOST A NEW early learning children’s centre at the Marong Primary School in Leslie Street, Marong is to be developed following the issue of a $615,000 contract. City of Greater Bendigo North West Plains councillor Bruce Phillips said the contract has been awarded to local company Searle Bros Building Contractors. He said construction work will start at the end of November for an expected completion in time for the second school term in 2012.

Declining interest leads to cancellation of summer event

Tram raiders

New Year carnival axed THE annual New Year’s Eve carnival in Hargreaves Mall has been scrapped. Declining numbers and interest in the family event has forced the carnival committee’s hand. Despite the carnival not going ahead, the planned fireworks will. City of Greater Bendigo mayor Rod Fyffe said despite the damage the fireworks did to the QEO last year, they would still be launched from the poppet head in Rosalind Park this year. “While council is disap-

pointed that more community activities are not able to be offered this coming New Year’s Eve, it does respect the New Year’s Eve Carnival Commit-

The committee is meeting... to discuss potential celebrations for future years tee’s decision not to proceed with a broader family event this year due to declining participation over the past few years,” he said. “The committee is meeting in early January 2012 to discuss

works and a midnight fireworks display will go ahead as a gift to the community from the City of Greater Bendigo,” said Cr Fyffe. Cr Fyffe said the fireworks will take place at midnight from Rosalind Park.

“For safety reasons, community members are reminded that there will be a 30-metre exclusion zone surrounding the poppet head in Rosalind Park and the car park off Gaol Road. These areas will be closed to the public from 7am Saturday December 31, 2011 until approximately 9am Sunday January 1, 2012,” he said. “I would also like to remind residents that the noise associated with fireworks often frightens animals and anyone with pets should ensure they are securely confined on New Year’s Eve.”

Everyone’s a winner at the TRYathlon BENDIGO will host a round of the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon next year. The TRYathlon is an event for children aged between seven and 15 where everyone is a winner and every child receives a medal from a sporting hero. It is about completion, not competition, encouraging children of all fitness levels and abilities to get active in a friendly, supportive environment. Research conducted with parents over the past 13 years of events held in Australia shows children who participate get a major boost to their self-esteem and are more likely to continue doing physical activity after the event.

BENDIGO Art Gallery closed its doors on its most successful exhibition ever on the weekend. Director Karen Quinlan said attendances at The White Wedding Dress: 200 years of Wedding Fashions exceeded the previous most popular show, The Golden Age, by more than 1000, topping 76,000 for the first time in the gallery’s history. Ms Quinlan said the combination of extended weekend hours and timed tickets (reducing queue times) were both strategies contributing to the blockbuster’s success. The exhibition was also a critical success with one commentator saying it improved on the previous Victoria and Albert Museum show by including a “unique distillation of real women’s tastes, hopes, personality and reality”.

With the Bendigo Swap Meet taking place this weekend individuals are encouraged to be vigilant – the heritage objects may end up on sale there or could turn up at other heritage trading places or on an online auction site such as eBay.

Also silver sponsors, City of Greater Bendigo, Villawood Properties, Planwise Design/Grogan Machinery, Telstra Business Centre, Hazeldene’s, Lion Nathan, we say thanks. To all our Bronze sponsors, we thank you for your in kind support, together with auction and raffle donations. All monies raised will go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the local Prostate Support Group. Donations will also be made to the Bendigo Lions Club and Girls Night In committees for their assistance. This is a very important event, not just about raising funds, but mostly creating awareness for men to have regular prostate checks. The message needs to be out there in the community as about 3300 men die as a result of prostate cancer each year. We are looking forward to a fun filled day, listening to funny man Andrew Startin, then a serious message from local Urologist, Stephen Lindsay. I wish to thank everyone involved for your support and assistance and in particular the staff of the Bendigo weekly, as without your help, events like this just couldn’t happen. Kind Regards Keith Sutherland Chairman of the Organising committee

Friends battle on

By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

THE Friends of Fortuna are trying to drag the neglected historic villa back into the spotlight. President Patrick Thwaites has outlined a plan to create a “nationallevel tourist attraction” on the site. “The business plan places strong emphasis on the financial viability of the proposed venture,” Mr Thwaites said. “The core business will provide the overall structure and branding, while individual tenants will provide the bulk of the offerings to the public.” The 1870s mansion is on a site owned by the Commonwealth Department of Defence, which is awaiting a decision by the Victorian Government

GRAND: But is development feasible? and City of Greater Bendigo council on whether to buy it. The policy for priority sale to a state of local government requires the buyer to demonstrate that the future use and operation of a site is financially sustainable. The former Victorian Government announced last year a plan to develop

the house into a community arts centre. In April, Nationals Member for Northern Victoria Damian Drum said the community arts centre was not feasible. Mr Drum said the plan needed to include a “high-class restaurant and a sound bowl”. Mr Thwaites said the new plan addresses the

cost of maintenance of the site, and also recognises the significance of its heritage. “The plan proposes adaptive re-use of the site to house a number of attractions, activities and businesses which will operate in the areas of heritage, hospitality, creative industries, community and education,” he said. The Friends of Fortuna plan also proposes using building 10, which previously housed the Defence Map Library, as a permanent home for the Bendigo Historical Society. The plan has not yet undergone feasibility analysis. The Friends of Fortuna have called a public meeting on November 17 at 7pm at the Bendigo Library to encourage comment on the new plan.

Challenge raises cash for a cause LOCAL riders have raised more than $6000 for disability service provider Radius’s Ride for Respite campaign. More than 36 cyclists rode more than 20,000km as part of the Cafe Cycling Challenge. The challenge required local cyclists to commit to riding either 500km or 1000km throughout October and to obtaining sponsorship from friends and family. Radius Disability Services hosted a closing event last week, sponsored by Glen Loddon Homes, to announce the winners. Tess Carter,12, won an award for being the youngest rider, and won the overall award for raising the most money – $1065. Bendigo Weekly cycling columnist Eddie Barkla rode the most kilometres – 1600. Radius chief executive officer Jan Boynton thanked everyone involved. “It is so encouraging to see the Bendigo cycling community getting together for a good cause,” she said. “We at Radius are very grateful for everyone’s efforts and we particularly acknowledge Glen Loddon Homes and the participant cafes that supported the challenge.” Funds raised from Ride for Respite will assist the building of much-needed respite accommodation for people with a disability living with ageing parents who are anxious about what will happen to their loved ones in the future.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 11, 2011

Spotlight on sustainability BENDIGO will be the sustainability capital of Australia over the next few days. Two major environmental forums will be held in the city from Sunday, shining the spotlight locally and nationally. Bendigo will host Australia’s first conference to focus on community owned and driven, clean energy projects next week. Federal Parliamentary Secretary for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Mark Dreyfus will open the two-day Community Power Conference on Monday. The conference is expected to draw representatives from around Australia working on projects owned and driven by community groups. One example is Hepburn Wind, a two-turbine wind farm which is now generating clean energy near Daylesford. Others are a factory-roof scale solar plant which generates returns for a community co-operative, a hydro turbine established before the power grid was established which is being restored to generate energy, farmscale wind turbines and a proposed biomass plant that would use crop stubbles and wood waste to generate energy. Themes to be addressed include the technological options communities are adopting to generate energy or reduce energy use, the business mod-

els they are adopting to run them, the ways they are engaging their communities and, how they are overcoming barriers such as complex grid connection requirements. The conference is being hosted by La Trobe University’s Centre for Sustainable Regional Community, Central Victoria Solar City and the City of Greater Bendigo. Conference convenor John Martin said it would showcase some of the nation’s most innovative communityowned and driven small to medium scale renewable energy generation and energy reduction programs. “Thousands of people are working in towns and regions across Australia to cut their energy use and switch to cleaner sources of energy,” he said. “These are communities that see the significant potential these projects offer in terms of generating income, building the social capital that bonds them and softening the impact of rising electricity prices on low and fixed-income households especially. These are communities taking charge of their energy use.” Conference ticket prices have been kept low to encourage community groups and volunteers to attend. To register, email conference manager Patricia Ibbotson at P.Ibbotson@ latrobe.edu.au A forum looking at whether Bendigo could be fully powered by sustainability will be held on Sunday.

Working to repower Bendigo WHETHER or not Bendigo can be powered 100 per cent by renewable energy will be the focus of a forum in Bendigo on Sunday. The Repower Bendigo forum will be held at Bendigo TAFE from 1.30pm to

4.30pm. Guest speakers include Young Environmentalist of the Year Matthew Wright and Nicky Ison and Jarra Hicks of the Community Power Agency. Discussion groups will also look at how to create community-owned

renewable energy, how to increase the city’s energy efficiency and start to develop a renewable energy plan. The event has been sponsored by Strategem Financial Group’s Community Foundation.

Haven seeks its pioneers

IN one generation Haven has grown from one man in a warren to one of Australia’s premier affordable housing associations and homeless services providers. They have a staff of 120 and a balance sheet of more than a quarter of a billion dollars. Now the former Loddon Mallee Housing Services has itself been rehoused and renamed.

To mark the first anniversary of its move to new premises in Forest Street and rebranding, Haven is compiling a history. Were you there when it all began in the back of Bendigo Trades Hall in the mid-1970s? All the city’s abattoirs, most of its meatworks and several large food processors shut their doors. In just two years almost 700 men were

thrown out of work, the effect rippling throughout the community as the unemployment rate grew to the fourth highest in the state. The hall of advocacy became a crisis centre. From the backrooms the unionists’ wives organised food parcels and provided other practical aid to support struggling families. It is those women who formed what would eventually be-

come the Bendigo Urban Emergency Accommodation Resource Centre in 1978 that Haven is looking for. Were you a wife of a Trades Hall representative who helped support the families? Were you one of those who turned for a helping hand? If you can help, please contact Sue Masters at sue.masters@ haven.org.au or phone 5444 9021.

By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

FOR a group of Bendigonians, the tragic story of the Montevideo Maru starts and ends in this city. “We’ve called ourselves a family remembrance group,” Lois Newton says. “My uncle was on the Montevideo when it went down on the 1st of July in 1942, and while I wasn’t even born then, there is something there, something about his story, that I just love. “I’d ask questions, but parents in those days just never talked about it.” Lois has gradually pieced together the story of her uncle Leonard Wall, known as Peter, who was one of 845 prisoners of war from the 2/22nd Lark Force which had been stationed in Trawool and Bonegilla, before being sent to Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, to delay the Japanese advance towards Australia. When Rabaul fell to the Japanese, all those

men, as well as 208 civilians and the crew of 88, were put on the Montevideo Maru to be transported to Hainan. During that voyage, an American submarine, unaware there were Australian prisoners of war on board, fired on the ship, which sank. All prisoners aboard died, including the grand-

As Lois pieced together the story of her uncle, she has met a circle of people in Bendigo and further afield who all lost relatives in what is now acknowledged as the worst maritime disaster in Australia’s history. Last year, the Bendigo contingent joined a group at Parliament House in Canberra, to hear a peti-

In September 1940, Patrick married Eveyln Maud Dudley, his army mates forming a guard of honour at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo in honour of the event. Just seven months later, Patrick boarded a ship heading to Rabaul, and six months later, his daughter Patricia was born. “It was many years before we learnt that he had

The dedication, which will follow the Remembrance Day ceremony, will be officiated by School of Artillery chaplain Andrew McNeill. Mrs Newton is hoping two survivors from the original 1400 personnel in the Lark Force garrison will make it to Bendigo for the event. “I have shed buckets of tears over all the stories,” Mrs Newton says. “I’ll never be sorry I started the search though. “It’s wonderful to see people healing after all this time.”

Making waves with ...

Bendigo

Ben Jones and

Anthony Radford Ben – It’s the local you know, 3BO. Time to talk about what is happening around Central and Northern Victoria with Bendigo Weekly editor Anthony Radford. Radders, it’s all about Black Saturday at the moment. Anthony – Yes news came through this week that prosecutors had dropped charges against the two young boys who allegedly lit the Bendigo fire on Black Saturday. It came as no surprise given both the prosecution and defence, as well as the judge and jury, believed their were unfit for trial anyway, so would never be able to face a court with any major outcomes attached. I can understand the frustrations with this, but the August hearing about them being fit to plea was their day in court, it was their trial. These kids are severely intellectually disabled. Their disability was never going to get any better, their intellectual age was not going to grow past the 8 or 9 years old they are now. In a civilised society we don’t just string everybody up. They had their day in court and it was unanimously found justice couldn’t be delivered fairly. The Royal Commission had outlaid a lot of evidence of what actually happened on the day, firewise, so there wasn’t a lot more to learn, other than if these kids really did it. Ben – Are there any issues that still remain on this one? Is there anything else that can be done. Anthony – There will probably be a Coronial inquiry, but the real issue to me is not necessarily a legal one, but it is who was responsible for these kids, with such a low IQ and being such a young intellectual age. Who was responsible for letting them so far out of their sight on a day like that. Unfortunately these questions can’t be answered for legal reasons. Ben – That’s the thing with it. A dark period in Bendigo’s history. For the family and friends of Mick Kane and for those who lost property or businesses, it is those sorts of questions that are going to remain unanswered. It is something I can never understand and wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

Safety first I WOULD like to echo the sentiments of Vivien Newton (Bendigo Library manager) and Carolyn Macvean (Goldfields Library Corporation CEO) about the safety of library users (Bendigo Weekly, November 4). I have visited the Bendigo Library about two to three times a week for the last 10 years and have found the library a great community asset, offering a wide variety of resources for all age groups, especially young people in our community. Unfortunately, since the middle of this year I have noticed the deterioration in the atmosphere in and around the library precinct. Since the opening of the offices of Headspace and Connect Central (next door to the library entrance), young people have gathered on and around the walkways into the library. Many library users walk up the ramp and I have seen them being intimidated, harassed and victims of bad language. I have spoken to these young people complaining of their treatment of others and received verbal abuse in return. There are police cars or police officers now seen outside the library speaking to young people more and more. The library staff have done a wonderful job during this time keeping the operation running as smoothly as possible. In late 2010, St Luke’s received a grant of $2 million to establish a Community Youth Centre, on the corner of Mundy and Hargreaves streets and the centre would become a critical component of the developing youth precinct. This would have been a better site to establish the Headspace and Connect Central offices together with the other youth support agencies at the site. We should not just move the issues to another area, but look at what is best solution for all resident of Bendigo. Everybody in our community should feel safe at all times, especially when in the CBD of our great city. Chris Forsberg, Bendigo

Making a difference OF course it would be a good idea to have a publicly elected mayor. But that change, by itself, would not do very much to assist the development of our city and lift the

Better make sure Christmas goes ahead

public approval of council. To make a difference: Publicly elect the mayor and deputy mayor for four-year terms; Elect three other councillors for four years on a single-ward basis. Pay the mayor, deputy and councillors on the same basis as State MPs. Require mayor, deputy and councillors to undergo a thorough initial training course and to undertake added training each year on the same basis as in many professions. Give the mayor the power to hire and fire the CEO. Such a structure would bring far greater scrutiny of any projects proposed by staff and far better accountability by staff. The greater professionalism of the jobs would also be likely to attract better qualified candidates at council elections, the four-year terms would give greater continuity to leadership. I congratulate the Weekly on raising this most important matter. Neil Clark, Randwick, NSW

Festival disappointment IT is very disappointing to read in the Bendigo Weekly that the Easter Festival is being held on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Sunday; and not Easter Monday. Not only is it a mistake to hold a festival on Good Friday – the most solemn day of the Christian

calendar – but the musical contribution of the pipe and brass bands will be missing without the parade on the Monday. As the Weekly wrote – pipe bands will be otherwise occupied on the weekend at competitions, and the mayor has tried to mislead the public by saying that all stakeholders were happy about the decision to cut out the Monday parade. However, the bands have not been informed or consulted. Bring back the Monday parade. Helen Leach, Bendigo

Protect historic event IT is of great concern that the Easter Festival Committee have decided to reduce the Easter Fair to three days. There is very strong community support for the Easter Parade to be kept to its traditional Easter Monday. We see the council spending huge amounts on the new theatre, multi-storey carpark, Hargreaves Mall, the View Street precinct, and yet when it comes to the people’s festival we have cost cuts. This institution brings thousands of people to Bendigo to participate in our wonderful historical Easter Fair – it must be protected.

Car clarity I WOULD like to clarify the City of Greater Bendigo’s position regarding motor vehicles being offered for sale on local roadsides. The City of Greater Bendigo’s policy on this matter is to respond on a complaint basis from residents. Earlier this year the City introduced a new Streets and Roads Local Law No 4 following a large volume of complaints from residents over a number of years who were affected daily by cars for private sale being parked in front of their homes. It is the role of the City of Greater Bendigo to ensure that residents can access their property and that their amenity and enjoyment of their property is not adversely affected by vehicles being offered for sale on roadsides. The local law allows Council officers and the Police to issue penalty infringement notices to vehicle owners including local LMCT dealers who offer their cars for sale on roadsides or road reserves. It’s important to note that since the local law was introduced the number of complaints received has significantly decreased and only one fine has been issued.

no trial by fury

THE wounds of Black Saturday are understandably still raw around Bendigo. Almost 60 homes were lost, one man, Mick Kane, perished, and a lot of people were forced to flee, or protect, their homes in fear. Therefore, when news came through the Director of Public Prosecutions would drop the case against the two young boys accused of lighting the fire, the reaction was expected. People were, rightly, angry. Those who lost homes wanted someone to be punished. Friends and family members of Mr Kane wanted answers and closure. They feel the legal system has failed them and is out of step with the community, and these children should have their day in court. The truth is, no matter how unpalatable, they already have. The August 8 hearing outlined in intricate detail how mentally impaired these children are. Despite being 13 and 14 at the time, they had the intelligence of an eight-year-old, and they still do. They had, and still do, an IQ of 56. Between 70 and 55 is classed as having an intellectual disability.

Bendigoweekly

Editorial Comment They were in the bottom .2 percentile of people their age. Therefore, 99.8 per cent of people their age are going to perform better than them. The hearing found the boys were unable to exercise the right to challenge a jury, unable to understand the nature of the trial, unable to follow the course of the trial, unable to understand the substantial effect of any evidence that may be given in support of the prosecution, and unable to give instructions to their lawyers. This was a unanimous decision. The jury found it, and the judge, defence and police prosecutors all agreed before the verdict. The lawyer for one of the accused summed it up like this when talking to the jury: “Today you have a very special

role, in many ways, a unique role, a role that is a mark of a civilised society, a society that says ‘we don’t treat children in the same way that we treat adults, that children don’t and they cannot think as adults’, and a society which says a person, be they child or adult, who is not fit to plead, through no fault of their own, is not to be put on trial. That, I would suggest to you, is the mark of a civilised society.” These comments are a bitter pill to swallow, but it is why these boys will never see a full trial. Hopefully they can learn to apologise and go at least some way to easing the heartache. There is another question that will never be solved around this, and it is not a legal one per se. Who was responsible for the welfare of these children? Who let two intellectually disabled children, with such low intellectual ages, play by themselves in the bush? Who was supposed to be supervising these kids who, according to the court, didn’t know any better? The law is right to protect the kids’ identities; but that leaves these important questions about responsibility unanswered.

Carbon Aussies, carbon, carbon THIS is an historic week that will change the lives of many Australians. After 20 years of debate, the Labor Government’s Clean Energy Future legislation has been passed by our Parliament and will become law. This is the first time we will have a law that cuts the carbon pollution which causes climate change. Labor has fought hard to do the right thing. We’re protecting the environment for our children and our grandchildren. Let me be clear – the carbon price is not a tax on individuals or families. Not at all. Instead it’s something that 500 of our biggest polluters will pay for the carbon pollution they pump into our atmosphere. These polluters will now have an incentive to cut their carbon pollution. If they become greener they will pay less of the carbon price.

Julia gillard

In addition, our plan will help Australian companies become greener by funding innovative ideas and new clean energy technologies. Labor understands some people are concerned pol-

Abbott has claimed the impact of the carbon price on families will be almost unimaginable. The truth is any increase will be modest. Treasury has told Australians that groceries, for example, are only expected to go up by 80 cents per week. The household assistance we are offering will offset these increases. In

“I see a great clean energy future...” luters may pass on the carbon price to their customers. That’s why we’ve included financial assistance in our plan to support families. Nine out of 10 households will receive tax cuts and increases in their pensions and allowances to assist them with any costs passed on by polluters. For a year now, Tony

fact, more than four million households will end up better off. In Victoria for example, around 1.9 million people will receive a tax cut and for almost 1.6 million of these, it will be a cut of at least $300. Further assistance will be provided to 1.5 million Victorian residents through pension and allowance in-

creases or through boosts to family support payments. I know there are many people in Victoria already driving green change such as the plumbers and electricians I met who are being trained to work on renewable technologies. There is geothermal power at work in suburban Melbourne and whole communities – such as in Geelong and Gippsland – are developing their own low carbon growth plans. It’s great to see people in Victoria doing their bit to protect our environment. Together we will make a difference for our children and our grandchildren. Future generations will judge that we are on the right side of history. We have taken action to cut carbon pollution and make our country a better place to live. I see a great clean energy future for our great country.

GEE, THANKS: Bec Jackson, Cr Rod Fyffe and Alana Waddington.

Speedy result from technology leap BENDIGO’S communication technology has taken a big step forward with the official launch of Telstra’s 4G mobile network. City of Greater Bendigo mayor Rod Fyffe was on hand to launch the service at Telstra’s Marketplace store. Testing by the Bendigo Weekly showed data speed on a smart phone varied from just under six megabits per second in the CBD, to .61 mb/s in parts of Strathdale. The 4G network is expected to deliver speeds of between 30 and 42 mb/s. Telstra Country Wide Central Victoria and Sunraysia general manager Ray Pratt said the faster speeds meant consumers in Bendigo could

download songs faster, get TV shows in minutes and do more things simultaneously. “This is just the beginning,” he said. “Telstra 4G offers a new exciting generation of communication and local customers will also be able to perform more advanced tasks on their mobile devices now and into the future. “In addition to increased download speeds, the increased bandwidth will support handling of higher-quality images. “This aspect is important to many people, such as the medical profession, where local practitioners regularly liaise with capital city specialists.”

Like most new business owners, their first year hasn’t been without its challenges. “My mum’s husband, who was also a partner in the business, passed away earlier this year, so that made things difficult,” Corinne said. “But we receive great feedback about our meals, chef, Marnie Kenyon, and our friendly staff. It has been better than we expected”. - Vicki Harrington

Following the 2009 bushfires the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission recommended that the State replace the fire services levy with a property-based levy and introduce concessions for low-income earners. The Government is committed to implementing the Royal Commission’s recommendations, and will introduce a fairer and more equitable new property-based levy to replace the existing fire services levy.

pick of the week The Drop

Michael Connelly Allen & Unwin, $32.95 YOU know you’re in good hands with a new Michael Connelly, the Florida-based crime writer, author of a couple of dozen novels, one a year since he started in 1992. His new one, The Drop, is another Harry Bosch: fans will be worried that Harry is still talking about retiring, but relieved that, in this book, he is given another three years before mandatory retirement. Connelly is no great stylist, and he tends to put simple details into the plot that might have you thinking he occasionally underestimates his readers. But he is an expert plotter, and he also has an almost over-developed sense of justice. There is none of

the moral ambiguity of, say, an Ian Rankin. In The Drop, Harry and his partner Chu are put on a cold case: a DNA test has given a new lead in a 30-year-old murder. At the same time, he is called in to investigate what appears to be a suicide. The man is the son of an influential city councillor, a sworn enemy of Bosch. Connelly doesn’t push the “who dunnit” angle; he’s more into building a pace at which events unfold, showing us how the detective’s experience and intelligence must kick in to track perpetrators. He does have a couple of neat twists, one that really comes straight out of Hitchcock. For those who don’t enjoy too much blood and guts, he’s good on this: you

An overload of intolerance

There is nothing like a bit of close-proximity annoyance to bring out the worst in some

STEVE KENDALL ON LIFE

Now I am back home in Australia I have had time to reflect on my intolerance, and how unrealistic it was. How could I make so much of such a small thing? Intolerance leads to so many problems in our world, and today of all days is a reminder of just how bad it can get. November 11 marks the day in 1918 when the war to end all wars ended.

Shame was, it didn’t end all wars, we are still losing men and women fighting a cause which has its root in intolerance. Why can’t we get on together? During my trip to England I chanced across a cemetery in Lincoln. There among the long lost of the English fen country, lay a couple of hundred graves of Polish airmen killed while in training. Not for them any glory in death, if such a thing exists, but simply a twist of fate which saw them die before facing the enemy again. I say again, because Poland, due to the intolerance of Germany, was drawn into a war

Why do plastic bags NOT go in the recycling?

it neither chose nor wanted. Those who survived the onslaught escaped to England to fight again. Some to fall. At war’s end the Polish warriors who remained were snubbed by the Allies to appease the intolerant Soviet Union. The Lincoln cemetery bears testament to the price paid by many. Seems there is lot to be said for all to be a little more tolerant to those around us. Not just at Christmas, or when we are in a good mood, but at all times. I’m not often one to preach in such a way, but when you stop for

the minute’s silence at 11am today try to think of the millions, of all nationalities, who have died due to the intolerance of leaders and nations. When it comes down to it, my 22 hours of minor trauma on an aircraft was nothing. I should shut up and be grateful I have not been flung into conflict or any serious row. I may start being kinder to fellow road users too. Then again, maybe if I vent my silent anger in the car, men with sunburnt ears will be free to travel unhindered on my next trip overseas. Sounds like a tolerable plan.

INTOLERANCE. Big word to start with this week. I think I’m guilty of it on many levels, mostly aimed at drivers around town. However, I came to really dislike a fellow traveller on a recent flight back from England. There I was crammed into seat 77G with the cabin full of other economy-level passengers – there were 333 of us – when I noticed the man in front was wearing a hat. Not the thing you’d expect in an aircraft, except the captain maybe. It was one of those leathery Aussie hats which are generally sold to tourists. Eventually he flipped it back and it hung around his neck on a string for the rest of the journey. Worse was to come, he had protruding ears, and they were heavily sunburnt and to be honest, looked covered in melanomas. Over the next 22 or so hours I came to hate the man with the ears as he moved the seat back and forward, seemingly oblivious to the people behind him. There is a certain etiquette to this, as no one really wants the chair back in their lap. Mind you, I reckon I paid him back with my snoring.

Foods for detoxing EXCESSIVE sugar, alcohol and junk food may upset your digestive balance and can burden your liver, so reducing these will help your digestive system and get your liver back into balance. So, what are some of the best foods for detoxification? As part of the simple, twoweek ‘mini-detox’, here are some simple dietary tips: Freshly made fruit and veggie juices can be added to a healthy diet to improve detoxification. Here are some great juice suggestions: Lemon, beetroot, ginger and apple; or try watermelon, carrot, lemon and beetroot. There are many different

combinations, just use your imagination. Having lots of fibre in your diet helps your body flush out what it does not want or need and also helps maintain stable blood sugar levels during the day so you feel full and have abundant energy. Use the fibre left over from juicing in soups or mix within your next meal. Of course it is also important to make sure you drink lots of pure water while you are doing a mini-detox as this will help flush the toxins out of your body. Nature has provided us with many wonderful foods to help remove toxins from our body.

SCARED

GET RID OF‌

THOMAS REID and his wife were able to remain as head teacher and assistant at the newly created State School 325 Irishtown, having previously occupied the same position at the St John’s School in Lucan Street. As I pointed out a few weeks ago, number 325 became number 1267 and then was called the North Sandhurst State School, this name remaining with the school up until 1891, when Sandhurst reverted back to the original name of Bendigo. In common with most State School employees the Reids had to seek promotion. In order to do so their location would inevitably change as well. This occurred for the couple during the year of 1879. The newly appointed head teacher following Thomas Reid was John J. Burston; when the school celebrated its centenary in 1973, it is mistakenly recorded that Burston’s given name was James. One cannot help but make some observations about the Irishtown State School, in comparison to the physical structures of other schools that were built, or extended, in some other parts of our city.

WITH

JAMES LERK Golden Square had a new school constructed at Laurel Street in 1874, Gravel Hill was completed in July 1875; the Central School was ready in 1877. This is now called Camp Hill Primary School. It too catered for some of the children from the western side of Irishtown. The German School, or what became known as Violet Street, was extended by the state in 1877, Long Gully was completed in 1879, while that of California Gully was able to be occupied on July 2, 1883. Without going to the schools a little further from the centre of the city, it is obvious that all the aforementioned were built in a substantial manner in double or even triple brick, while the Irishtown School was the only one that was constructed of wood and weatherboards. Why was the Irishtown School a poor cousin of the other schools? Was it because this portion of Bendigo did not have the same political pull at the time, as it was renowned as the poor portion of the city?

I will let you, the reader, draw your own conclusions. Mr Burston, the head teacher of the North Sandhurst State School, had occasion to write to the Secretary of the Education Department on February 26, 1880 as follows: “Sir, I have the honour to inform you that Miss Wylie, whose absence I reported on Monday last, is more seriously ill than I anticipated, and that it is therefore uncertain when she may be ex-

When a single document such as the one above comes to light it can answer, as well as raise, many questions. Mr Burston was to remain as head teacher until 1887.

WRITE ON

Kelly’s writing gang He loves computers but gets cross when people call letters “snail mail”. Meet the man whose mission it is to make writing as popular as footy By ROSEMARY SORENSEN

HE is irresistible. With his energetic espousal of the value of children’s writing, his tried-and-tested ways to encourage kids to have a go, and his kindly enthusiasm for sharing the pleasure of reading and writing, Jack Kelly is a one-man, walking, talking advertisement for good teaching. “All this talk about teaching language skills, about how to make kids read – it’s totally misunderstood,” Mr Kelly says. “Children learn to speak off each other and that’s what they need to do for reading and writing – they need to learn off each other.” Mr Kelly is the genial campaigner behind the Scribe Young Writers Club. A retired teacher who started out as a Marist brother, it was when he was at White Hills Tech (now Weeroona College) he first began to get the students he taught to write and publish their own work. He published a novel written by a Year 8 boy, Alan Tebb, in 1972 and the magazine grew from there.

When he retired in 1992, he didn’t retire at all, simply broadened his scope, taking his writing workshops out to many schools across Bendigo. Scribe now invites young writers (and parents and teachers, too) from all over the country to submit their stories and poems. He has spread his influence as far as Adelaide, Darwin and North Queensland. The closing date is the last day

but the opportunity is there. “I won’t be happy until there are as many writing clubs as there are footy clubs.” It’s a grand vision, an optimistic vision, which Mr Kelly takes through into the practical way he goes into the classroom and engages with kids. His approach is to treat writing not as something that is difficult to master, but like any other creative activity, some-

An individual who had slipped up on a point of grammar or spelling would be punished, and sometimes a teacher would involve the whole class, berating the group. No wonder, he says, so many people found writing a chore, rather than a pleasure. “No-one criticises a clumsy child who falls over,” he says. “So why would we criticise a child who makes a writing mistake?” One of the young writers,

“I won’t be happy until there are as many writing clubs as there are footy clubs.” of every month, from March to November, with an entry fee of $2. Mr Kelly then chooses the best, collates all the submissions, prints them in a little booklet and sends them out to those who have subscribed for $10. It’s very hands-on. Mr Kelly says he used to travel around to many more schools than the six he now regularly visits. “I realised it could become slavery!” he says. “So I now limit it to workshops in these schools,

thing that needs to be tried out. “I tell kids this is not a class, it’s a studio,” he says. “What we’re doing are rehearsals.” Teachers in the past, he says, did a “heroic” job under difficult conditions. It was common when he first started teaching for classes to have 50 children, and for discipline to be strict. Mr Kelly, now in his 70s, shakes his head at the way writing was taught when he started back in the 1950s.

Thalia Thirunavukarasu from St Therese’s Primary School, told Mr Kelly Scribe stands for “stories, creative, reckless, inspirational, brilliant and exciting”. When he queried why “reckless” made the list, Thalia told him it’s because he lets children make mistakes, and that’s good. In class, Mr Kelly gets other students to read the stories and poems out loud, not the child who wrote them. That’s part of the studio approach; the writer sits back and listens, while the reader

tries to make the reading into a performance. “That gives a different quality to the whole experience,” he says. The latest Scribe includes contributions from Maxine Peel of St Monica’s (“Green”, all about her favourite colour); Brady Epworth of California Gully (“The tiny platypus”, about Reggie’s day in his dark damp tunnel); and Kate Hadkins, of St Joseph’s (“The Rosella called Jack”, about a bird’s sleepover). Keeping up with the paperwork takes up a fair amount of time, but Mr Kelly knows the pleasure it brings a budding writer to see their work in print. He would dearly love, however, to see more writing posted on websites. “In the old days, it was only the rich who could write and publish,” he says. “The computer has changed that – it’s marvelous. “For a child to write, to see the way they develop their personal skills, it’s utterly important,” he says.

WRITE ON A Space of my Own A space of my own is a place to retreat; A place I can go without facing defeat. There I can sit and do as I please. There I can escape from the people who tease. I am my own master in my little hole. No one else bossing; just me in control. There I can sit and dream off into space.

Dream that I am higher than any other place. That I am higher than the stars, that shine brightly in the sky. Higher than the moon; oh so very, very high! And in that high place I create my own world. Oh how I love my very own world! My world is safe. There are no barriers, no walls. My world is good. There is no evil, none at all. Lesley McKarney

THE WIL TO WIN BEN CAMERON

ACCORDING to funny-man Wil Anderson, content is not always king. The method behind your madness is the key. Currently on a national stand-up tour (Man vs Wil), while hosting the ABC’s most popular show, The Gruen Transfer, Anderson must be hard pressed to find more clever Wil puns, let alone fresh gags. Nevertheless, the acclaimed comic says it’s just as much about like-ability, when it comes to getting a laugh. “Sometimes it’s not about the material,” Anderson admits. “Some people get bitchy and say to me they don’t find Hamish and Andy funny, but I just say, they’re just great company. “You like hanging out with them ... we forget part of it is just relationships. We get hung up a lot on content. “I could happily listen to Tony Martin talk about anything. “It’s indefinable.” It’s the X Factor that The Gruen Transfer’s popularity is based on. “It’s basically a group of people sitting around a desk,” Anderson says. “It’s whether you’re interested in those people talking about those things. (If so) then it works.” What also works for Anderson is the need for comics to find their own voice; something that took him a decade to locate. “Dave Hughes and Judith Lucy had it from an early age,” Anderson says. “It took me ten years to find my common voice on stage. “Like bands, when you first start out you’re the sum

JACKSON FIREBIRD

FOUR years ago, Mildura’s Dale Hudak and Brendan Harvey entered a music competition that propelled their careers onto an entirely new course.

WHILE the $50,000 prize was a fair incentive, Harvey admits he entered Wot Next, a nationwide unsigned talent search, because it was being headed up by Spiderbait’s organic drum machine, Kram, an idol since his youth. After taking the competition, and given studio time for a five- track EP, Hudak and Harvey hit it off with the voice behind Spiderbait’s biggest commercial hit, ‘Black Betty’. “We got along with Kram well so we thought it would be only right to get him to produce it with us,” he says. “The competition also allowed us to shoot a film clip for our track ‘Bottle Bin’ and we managed to sort a distribution deal with MGM which allowed our disc to end up in record stores all over Australia.” The success of Bottle Bin, the tune and EP, and the instrument, a unique but slightly crude piece of music weaponry – basically a black recycle bin coupled with electric washboard – which Hudak belts with unrivalled gusto, has made a Jackson Firebird live show a major drawcard. “They dig it man, the

uniqueness, and the simplicity of it still blows minds,” Harvey says of the bottle bin. Like a lot of bands before them, the explosive, dirty, sweaty rock of Jackson Firebird began as an excuse to cover a few tunes, and chug a few brews. “We just started jammin’ so we could make some noise and punch out tracks that we liked at the time whilst having a few beers,” Harvey says. “It then progressed into getting a gig at the local pub (which had beer) and it all snowballed on from there!” Like many in tight regional towns like Mildura with a taste for music, Hudak and Harvey go a long way back. “We have known each other for years – growing up in a small town you end up knowing people who are into the same things,” Harvey says. “Dale and I first met back in the mid 1990s. We ended up playing in a local band together, l was on the bass and ‘Hudes’ was called in to smash the skins.” They jammed on and off until Jackson Firebird eventually formed in 2006.

Adelaide International Guitar Festival, and slots at Bluesfest in Byron Bay, One Movement and Pyramid Rock, and support for fellow sweaty rock stars Airborne, Jackson Firebird moved to Melbourne in March. It’s been a pretty seamless transition so far, picking up a residency at the Esplanade Hotel on Thursday nights, and building a name in Melbourne through gigs at Cherry Bar, The Retreat and Pony. The boys will tune up for the Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival later this month with an east coast Shot To Kill tour with King Cannons. They’re no strangers to Bendigo, having played numerous shows with the now defunct Tyson Hodges Trio. Their debut album is due in January. “Jackson Firebird are keen to play more shows all over,” he says. “It will be exciting to get it out there and tour the ass of it around the country.” Jackson Firebird play the Newmarket Hotel on Saturday, November 26 and the Corner Venue on Sunday, November 27 at the Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival.

of your influences.” “But there’s a point you have to get to where you have to let your influences go and find your own voice.” Anderson has not only found his own voice, but reclaimed his mojo after his last show on the ABC, The Glass House, was canned in 2006. Much like the time following the Howard-baiting Glass House was axed, the task of hosting Gruen can be a nightmare. For Anderson, it’s a subtle juggling act of knowing when to be funny, when to be the straight man, when to ask the serious and funny question, and knowing the difference between the two. No wonder he says the best time he’s had on TV has been the “all fun, no responsibility” role on Good News Week, or the “really naughty, rowdy, drunken dinner party” atmosphere of TGH. “It felt like we were trying to be as funny as possible and offend as many people as possible,” Anderson says. Where TGH was a frat party, Gruen is much more dignified affair. “Gruen is a very different beast, it’s much more chal-

lenging,” Anderson says. “It’s harder to do, I can’t just be funny I’ve got a heap of different roles and responsibilities. “And sometimes the best thing for me to do is not be funny.” While he’s never run a marathon, he’s certain it would be pretty similar to hosting Gruen. “While you’re running the marathon, I imagine you’re not enjoying it too much,” Anderson says. “There might be moments you enjoy but a lot of the time you’re like ‘sh*t, I’ve just got to keep going’. “Wee is coming down my leg but I’ve got to keep going. But once you’ve done it you’re very proud of what you’ve achieved.” Anderson is also in the thick of his other “job”: strangely, stand-up is much more predictable. “A lot of my comedy is mood dependent,” he says. “If the audience is great and really into it, you get the show and everywhere else my mind tends to wander.” Wil Anderson plays Castlemaine’s Theatre Royal on Friday, November 18.

Natives to trout

Plenty of options FRESHWATER FISHING

NICK ATYEO

I

F you haven’t caught a fish in the last month or so you haven’t been trying, according to reports from waters near and far. More than 40 members packed the Bendigo Legion Angling Club meeting earlier this week to hear the latest fishing reports first hand as well as plans for future events. From Windamere in central NSW to the Curdies River in southwest Victoria, members have had mixed success with a variety of species. Lake Lonsdale, Fyans Purrumbette, Tooliorook have also been on the agenda closer to home as well as Cairn Curran and Lake Eppalock which is still producing good catches of redfin for those prepared to move around. Lake Dartmouth didn’t disappoint the 12 Bendigo Legion Angling Club members who made the eight hour return road trip late last month. With water levels at 73 per cent and still rising most of the exposed timber was submerged

providing an ideal habitat. More than 60 fish were boated with Greg Hammond fortunate enough to encounter a rare Macquarie Perch as a pleasant by-catch fishing a mudeye under a bubble float in 16 feet of water among the timber. Greg also landed the largest trout for the weekend being a 52cm brown trout. Trolled up from five metres off a downrigger with a scrubworm. Brian Eisfelder registered the largest rainbow with a solid 40cm fish as well as just falling short of bettering John Telford’s effort of largest bag of eight fish. Closer to home the first round of the third series of the Central Victorian Lure Casters Super Series was held at Eppalock with a record 100 competitors, including 12 juniors who all took home a prize. Unfortunately no golden perch were caught so the major prize pool will jackpot to $700 for round two held later this month. However Damien Browning was declared round one winner, receiving the sponsors

board and $300 cash closely followed by Dean Hodge on count back, as both competitors had registered the maximum five redfin and one carp. Darren Touhey registered the largest redfin of the day with a 1.1kg fish. Interested anglers can find out more about the next round and all prize categories including registration details at www.cvlcss.com held later this month at Eildon on Sunday, November 20. Eildon is also the destination for this month’s Bendigo Legion Angling Club trip on November 18 and 19, just prior to round two of the above series, so members will be able to indulge in a three-day extravaganza of fishing if they combine both events. Campsites are available with the club securing several adjacent sites for a first-come, firstserved basis. Details in this month’s newsletter. If the last two years are any guide anglers should be in for some great fishing with trout, golden perch and redfin readily available. Plans are also well under way for a trip to coincide with cod opening for the first weekend in December at Farley’s

Reserve just west of Echuca. Recently the Department of Primary Industries has successfully stocked more than two million native fish into Victorian lakes and rivers. Never before have two million fish been released into Victoria’s waterways according to the Department’s Fish-eFax newsletter. More than 800,000 Murray cod were also released over last summer, double the number compared to previous efforts.

JOE SINGE buggers in any colour or the infamous “Green Machine” or other attractor patterns. Large numbers of redfin always seem to find their way to these waters. Cast into the surging waters and let the fly be swept along, then hold on. Strip it back in short quick pulls and recast. I have recently heard of trout to 750 grams being taken in the Loddon River below Cairn Curran Reservoir. Also, a brown trout of two kilograms caught in the Coliban River below Malmsbury Reservoir. So far I have not heard of any Mayfly action at Barkers Creek Reservoir. There has been a small hatch around noon on overcast days. I have also been told of a rubbish problem at Barkers Creek Reservoir. Fly fishers from the Bendigo and District Fly Fishers have been collecting bags of rubbish left behind by nonthinking anglers. Please take your rubbish home. I have also heard that there are trout rising all through the day at Tullaroop Reservoir.

AILRACE waters below the spillways of our local reservoirs are often a good place to prospect with a fly. Particularly after heavy rain causes water to overflow the spillway, creating a flowing stream at the bottom of the spillway as the water flows into the river or creek below. We all know that trout love flowing water. How the trout arrive in this flowing water is open to debate. Some argue that the trout come over the spillway while others say the trout follow the running water upstream. Not all tailrace water is easily accessible but following is a list of local tailrace waters that may still be worth a look. Eppalock spillway, Cairn Curran spillway and the river below. Malmsbury reservoir spillway, remembering to check out the smaller spillway at the far end of the wall and the water flowing from it to the Coliban River as well as the Upper Coliban Reservoir spillway and river below. Depending on the depth (deeper water may require a sinking line) the flies I would try would be medium sized woolly

Castles fit for little royalty WHETHER for your child’s birthday party or a company function where kids need to be entertained, local business Bendigo Castle King have a range of jumping castles to suit every occasion. “Our castles come in eleven different themes: fairy, blast off, toy box combo, clown combo, jungle jump, animal farm, happy birthday, mermaid and fun-house combo, which have slides inside,� Susan from Bendigo Castle King said. Bendigo Castle King jumping castles are industrial strength blow-ups. They all have UV shades which keep the sun out and a front bumper to prevent children falling out, and the electric motors and leads all have a safety switch. Safety is a big consideration, so Glenn and Susan make sure the person running the function understands how to use them. “When someone selects one of our six castle types, we transport it to the required location, set it up and teach them how to operate it, explaining the rules and safety instructions,� Susan said. The castles can be booked for either four hours or eight, although Glenn says the castle can stay beyond the four-hour

With a recent upgrade Central Victoria Removals now have 1000 square metres of storage space

available. they can bring your goods in for you, or you can arrange to bring them in yourself. For a minimum fee they can store your goods away for you to ensure they are stored correctly so you get them back in the same condition they were bought in. Central Victoria Removals have a fleet of eight trucks, including three to eight-tonne trucks, a container truck with trailer to two semi-trailers. Whatever your needs, Central Victoria has the capacity to move you.

Removals are not always straight forward. Central Victoria Removals can help in these situations with various options available to store and relocate your furniture and effects when required. Central Victoria Removals also sells new and used removal cartons, tape, paper and bubble wrap. For a free no obligation quote for your next removal give Andrew or Vicky from Central Victoria Removals a call on 5448 3399 or call into their depot at 39 howard Street, Epsom.

The Government of Victoria is implementing a Bushfire Buy-back Scheme as part of its commitment to implement all the recommendations of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission Final Report. In its Final Report, the Royal Commission noted that landowners in extraordinarily high-risk locations have little option but to rebuild if they cannot sell and move on. “But if they rebuild the risk to life and property returns; if they sell their land to someone else who then rebuilds the risk is merely transferred to someone else. Were they able to sell their land to the State, ‌, they could resettle elsewhere, and the problem of the risk would be redressed.â€? The Commission recommended that “the State develop and implement a retreat and resettlement strategy for existing developments in areas of unacceptably high bushfire risk, including a scheme for noncompulsory acquisition by the State of land in those areas.â€? The Bushfire Buy-back Scheme (the Scheme) has been developed to implement this recommendation. Eligible properties will be determined by the following criteria: 1. Owner occupiers whose principal place of residence 2. was destroyed by the Victorian bushfires of early 2009, and 3. who have not commenced rebuilding, and 4. A site is not available on the property that will enable a replacement dwelling to be located at a distance greater than 100m from forest vegetation, and that vegetation adjoins a large area of forest such as a National Park, State Park, State Forest or private plantation. The Government is seeking feedback from potentially eligible landowners on the proposed approach, application process and timing of the Scheme, and will hold Information and Consultation Sessions in regional locations in November and early December. These landowners will receive a letter from the Bushfire Buy-back Project Manager with details of the Information and Consultation Sessions. Letters will be sent to the property address. If you do not receive a letter, you can either send an email to bushfirebuyback@justice.vic.gov.au or call (03) 8685 1314 for details on how to register. If you are not a landowner whose principal place of residence was destroyed but would like to attend an Information and Consultation Session, you can register as above however you may be placed on a waiting list. Participation in the Buyback Scheme is voluntary. Properties will be identified as eligible and owners of those properties can decide for themselves whether they are interested in selling. If a property is eligible for the Scheme, and the landowner and Government agree on the sale, the Government will offer to acquire the land. Private information about property owners gathered during these Information and Consultation Sessions will be used to inform the Scheme and will not be made public. Information on the proposed Bushfire Buy-back Scheme is available on the Department of Justice website: www.justice.vic.gov.au/buyback. If you are unable to access the website, you can email bushfirebuyback@justice.vic.gov.au or call (03) 8685 1314 for further information.

CYCLING

Jolly good show By BEN CAMERON

A JUNIOR judo exponent has done Bendigo proud on the world stage. Competing in the Under 20 World Judo Championships in Cape Town, South Africa, Kim Jolly finished a credible 7th, after

five rounds of competition in the Under 55kg division. From a group of 13 Australian representatives, Jolly was the only Aussie to win a fight. “I was pretty happy with the result considering my lack of experience,” Jolly said, who was knocked

out of the competition by the eventual silver medallist. “It was only my second time overseas too.” The next major bout on Jolly’s radar is the Commonwealth Judo Championships in Wales in January.

SUPPORTERS: Garry Long, Peter Sens, Noel Sens and Terry Schintler.

Program helps cyclists gear up MOST sports have an early entry age and succession pathway through the stages of skills development. The Bendigo and District Cycling Club were instrumental in getting a development program in the sport of cycling through the efforts of the late Merv Dean and the then president Gary Baxter. A structured program called J-Cycle now operates across Australian Cycling Clubs under the control of registered coaches of Cycling Australia. For parents of a child entering into the sport it is not just the purchase of a new pair of shoes when their children grow or a new kit of clothing. It means a new or secondhand bike every season, if not mid-season. What if the child only does one season and decides it is not for them? In the past Bendigo and District Club, through the generosity of Hardings Cycles and past members donating bikes, held only a limited number of bikes and frame sizes. This limited the accessibility for children to come and experience the sport. The club has never charged rental or expected newcomers to supply a bike until they are con-

EDDIE BARKLA vinced that the child is suited to the sport. The interest in cycling has certainly increased in the past few years. Recently an injection of funds from a diverse section of the community facilitated many new bikes being available to keep the program open and accessible to all-comers. Mark Tierney, brother Hayden and mother Louise made a generous donation from their local business, Vantage fuels. Their late father and husband, Gary Tierney, was a good friend of current coach Noel Sens and loved cycling. Glenn O’Shea, a home grown local champion cyclist, has also donated some of his Sports Star winnings with the similar view of supporting the program that helped begin own cycling journey. Glenn, a past world champion, was destined for many big events on the world stage until he was stricken with glandular fever, taking many months to recover. Recently Glenn won two gold medals and a silver at World Cup competition, putting him

back on track to be considered for an Australian Olympic team. Community is a wonderful support agent and the Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail (www.bendigokilmorerailtrail.com) have a keen interest in cycling culture, and the health and wellbeing of cycling programs. The Friends group members were aware of the club’s J-Cycle program and that there was a specific need for small track bikes. So the idea to make a direct contribution to assist the program with a bike was agreed by the committee. It was also a way to say thank you to the Bendigo and District Cycling Club for allowing the use of the clubrooms to conduct meetings of the Friends group. Another keen supporter of cycling is Noel Sens’ brother Peter, a concrete contractor who also generously donated to the cause of more bikes for the program. Bendigo and District Cycling Club are most grateful for the support of the community. Also to Nick Moroni of Cycle Concepts, who has helped stretch the affordability of the dollars into more bikes. Looking forward to seeing you on the road soon, God willing.

FINALISTS: The 3BO team.

Team tunes up for awards A LOCAL football team with a difference is in with a big chance of claiming one of country radio’s top sports gongs. The team behind 3BO’s After The Siren – Ben Jones, Brian Coghlan, Jeff Brennan, Brendan Baker, Zac Harvey, David McConnell and Marnie Hullen – have been nominated as a finalist in the VCFL Awards day at Visy Park next Friday. After The Siren, which covers AFL, VFL and Bendigo Thunder scores, and results from seven football leagues and three netball leagues, with in-

terviews from AFL stars, is in the top three vying for the Best Radio Football Program award for 2011.

They’re an incredible bunch of individuals It’s up against 3MFM’s “On The Bench” and the “Football Panel” on ONEFM 98.5. Show producer Ben Jones said the nomina-

tion was testament to a tight group of mostly unpaid but passionate local sports people. “These guys and girls sacrifice time away from there families, and clubs on a Saturday night to be a part of the show,” Jones said. He said one thing kept their show running on all cylinders. “We are all there for one reason, our passion for local footy and netball,” Jones said. “(They’re) an incredible bunch of individuals who gel together beautifully.” 1111

Remembrance Day Bendigo 96.5 Castlemaine 106.3 Your Request Line. Phone: 5444 1377 www.klfm.com.au

Radio KLFM is grateful to those service men and women who have served and honours those who have fallen.

Your horoscope Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 19):

You have a choice about whether to serve or suffer. To “serve” is to give oneself wholly to a task that will help one or more others. To “suffer” generally refers to emotional or physical ailments. If you are feeling blue, look for the nearest person who needs help and offer it. If your issue is physical, have compassion for your body and rest.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 19):

Favorable experiences come through sharing resources with others. It is possible that you may be given a token of affection. Money may come to you through insurance, an estate, or an investment. Your partner may have an increase in income or other resources. If you need a favour, now is the time to ask.

Gemini (May 20 - June 20):

Your partner may be experiencing a time of better fortune now, which likely will be shared with you. Information comes your way that opens options for your next project. The idea comes through a partner, a consultant, or your clientele.

1111

Cancer (June 21 - July 21):

You should give yourself every opportunity to be out and about in the social world. New people who come into your life at this time may become teachers or guides on your next path. Even employees or tenants may have something to offer. If a dog or a cat turns up, recognise it is your next teacher and answer the door.

Leo (July 22 - Aug 21): This is a time of focus on your health and the routine maintenance of life’s routines (yawn). Fire signs rarely want to handle details in any form. However, the message is clearly there. You must attend to these areas or pay a price for not doing so. Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 22):

Mars, the warrior, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you through to the month of June, 2012. In the beginning it may bring an infection with it, for which you really have something to fight. Overall, this energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. You must take charge of the energy and focus it productively so it won’t run you.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22):

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19):

During the next couple of weeks it would serve you well to attend social gatherings and generally put yourself “out there.” One or more people are likely to enter your life who can help you make the connections that need to come next. Favourable connections are made through teaching/educating.

A project begun at the first of this year is drawing to a close. You have little more to do than teach what you have learned to someone else. The experience has helped you to define yourself more clearly. It is possible that at the beginning of the year it will transform into a more mature version.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21):

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 17):

You have been through a long period of pushing yourself. In case you haven’t discovered it yet, let me clarify that your body is struggling with exhaustion. Do some preventive self-treatment. Take your vitamins. Get plenty of sleep. Hot chicken soup is also good.

Believe it or not, you have no significant aspects this week. There are no new assignments from the cosmos to distract you from your current path. It is a good time to finish juggling one or two of the balls you have in the air and bring them to a proper conclusion. It will help you feel accomplished.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 20): Follow your instincts about where you need to be, particularly if that includes a new social situation. Then give attention to whomever or whatever new enters your life. Someone, probably female, is likely to give you information that you need to know.

Pisces (Feb 18 - Mar 19): Neptune is one of your ruling planets. So as he comes to the surface you will also be coming into the light in some way. Maybe you are emerging, “waking up” as if from a long dream. Give yourself permission to be really present in the world. Make connections.

Players hit the heights ROUND Three gave us some great personal highlights with United’s Forbes Klemm making 117, and Golden Gully opening bowler Shaun O’Shea taking 12 wickets in their upset reverse outright victory against the highly fancied Spring Gully line-up. Golden Gully, after resuming their innings at 6/55 were dismissed for 99 giving Spring Gully a first innings lead of 28 runs and plenty of time for some batting practice. But someone forgot to tell Shaun O’Shea, as he ripped through the Spring Gully line-up for the second time in the match to take 6/31, and 12 wickets for the match. Leigh Penrose also chipped in with three wickets to rout the reigning premiers for 59, with only Luke Bell (23) making double figures,

leaving Golden Gully needing 87 for outright victory. They achieved the total with the loss of only two wickets, thanks mainly to Darren DeMarchi (68 no). Axe Creek resumed at 3/37 chasing West Bendigo’s target of 150, and made the runs quite comfortably in the end, being dismissed for 222 with half centuries to Travis Nolan (77) and Brad Sjaardema (50). Brad McHugh, Joel Purdy, Trent Bysouth and Glen Wallis all took two wickets apiece for West Bendigo After starting the day at 7/35, Marong could only muster 78 against Mandurang, thanks to an unbeaten 45 from Richard Murphy. In their second innings, Mandurang declared at 5/149 with Matt Giri again the star with the bat making 79. Marong faired

much better in their second innings finishing the day at 4/150. Maiden Gully had a big scare on their way to recording their first win of the season, slumping to 8/86 in reply to the modest target of 110 set by Sedgwick. But they eventually

Player of the week Wicket winner SHAUN O’SHEA is one of those cricketers that every club needs ... loyal, committed and prepared to do anything for his club. Shaun has been at Golden Gully Cricket club since their inception in 2000 and is predominantly known in the EVCA as a “B” Grade player, but after his efforts in the last round all that is about to change. Shaun, playing against last years’ premiers Spring Gully, had a magnificent match with six wickets in the first innings and then another six in the second

Premiers chase wins By BEN CAMERON

REIGNING Premiers Strathdale-Maristians will be hoping Cam Taylor’s all-round performances can inspire a return to the winner’s list in Round Four of the Bendigo and District Cricket Association. The leg spinner achieved career best figures of 7/27 off 16 overs in Maristians’ six wicket loss to Sandhurst at Weeroona Oval last Saturday, complementing a solid batting average of 32 this season. Taylor was modest about his brilliant return. “It would have been nice to take the wickets at a more important stage in the game and help us get over the line, but Sandhurst just outplayed us when

it mattered,” Taylor said. Taylor, who also played four seasons with Richmond Cricket Club (including 51 wickets at 28 and a Second XI century), has credited club off spinner Craig Howard for his form with the ball. “Having Craig Howard at the club certainly helps with the bowling side of things, as he has a terrific cricket brain and a lot of experience as a spin bowler at state level,” he said. “I’ve also been given some great opportunities, by (captain) Linton (Jacobs) to bat at the top of the order and bowl at some important stages. “I can’t put my form down to anything in particular, I’m just really enjoy-

ing my cricket and the people I’m playing with.” Taylor said the reigning premiers, who sit in fourth place among a batch of five teams on nine points, would move on quickly from its shock loss to Sandhurst, as they face an Eaglehawk outfit desperate for its first win of the year. “We have some great depth in our batting and bowling so we shouldn’t focus too much on one poor week, and instead look forward to two very strong opponents this weekend,” Taylor said. “We are always looking to improve every aspect of our game and I know the hard work that the boys put in will continue regardless of any good or bad results.”

passed the total with Mark Smith showing his class with a very patient 82 not out, carrying his bat through the entire innings and sharing in a 75 run stand with 16-yearold Hamish McCartney (14) to be all out for 175. McCartney also picked up four second innings wick-

ets to finish with seven for the match. United, after only needing an extra 14 runs on day two to secure first innings points batted all day to compile 333 with Forbes Klemm (117) and Michael Webb (54) the best with the bat while for Emu Creek, Leigh Byrne was

the best of the bowlers taking 4/37. In Round Four action this Saturday, United are at home to Maiden Gully, Axe Creek take on Golden Gully, Spring Gully take on Mandurang, West Bendigo play host to Emu Creek, while Sedgwick do battle with Marong.

Scorers draw wrong result BENDIGO and District Cricket Association president John Hecker has sent a strong message to all clubs: better communication is needed between clubs’ scorers on match days. The BDCA were forced to declare the B Grade fixture last Sunday between Golden Square and Strathfieldsaye a draw, after numerous errors were found in both books; each book was closely checked by two BDCA representatives. “We found too many inconsistencies in both innings to declare a result in this game,” BDCA

president John Hecker said. “Scorers of both clubs on match day need to work harder at communicating, so days like Sunday are avoided.” It was a heartbreaking decision for Jets players, after they’d won the game by one run off the last ball of the match, with the Bulldogs falling just short of the visitors’ 4/314. “It’s a kick in the guts for our team, but it’s a clear message that accurate scoring is just as important as bowling, batting or fielding,” Jets captain Ben Cameron said.

With champion guard Kristi Harrower again in doubt to play with an achilles injury, and staring down the possibility of a 2-5 start to the year, Harrower said it was time for his team to stand tall against eighth placed Canberra tonight. “Our season is on the line,” Harrower said. “It’s huge. It’s huge from the point of view when you lose games early in the season,

every game becomes a must win. “And this week’s no exception.” Harrower said his charges needed to find their passion to win. “It’s time for the girls to step up and show what they’re made of,” Harrower said. “I questioned their passion, their passion to win. “It’s something I’ve never had to really question with any of my teams.” The Spirit were out-muscled by Adelaide’s twin giants of Suzy Batkovic and Abby Bishop on Saturday night at Bendigo Stadium, and struggled to find their way to the basket until after half time, eventually going down by nine points (81-72). Harrower was at least pleased

ON THE LINE: Bendigo Spirit guard Kelly Wilson in last Saturday’s match against Adelaide Lightning the Spirit were able to work their way back into the contest after some mental lapses in the first half, led by a great display from Deanna Smith (27 points). “It looked like we were going to be beaten by 30 or 40 points,” Harrower said. “To pull it back, we had a couple of opportunities later in the fourth quarter...

and it would have been game on.” Harrower said the second half resurgence proved his team had what it takes to be a top-four contender. “It certainly showed we’re more than capable of mixing it with teams regardless of whether Kristi (Harrower) plays or not,” Harrower said.

While praising the brave efforts of Smith, Harrower said the Spirit suffered from young star Tess Madgen having a rare off night, struggling with cramps early in the game. “(But) if we can get them both firing, look out,” he said. Bendigo Spirit play Canberra at the Bendigo Stadium tonight. Tip off at 7.30pm.
