RARE gems of Bendigo’s history will be revealed to the general public for the first time, as the Catholic Sandhurst Diocese opens its archives to the Bendigo Weekly. The archives consist of photos, books, articles, plans and documents relating to the history of the diocese, and are a vital part of the origins of Bendigo itself. The diocese has employed an archivist for the first time, allowing the collection to be assessed by Heritage Victoria, and its significance finally recognised. This week, the Weekly reveals the details of pocket books containing the names and dates of the first infants baptised on the Central Victorian goldfields.


The pocket books belonged to Bendigo’s first Catholic priest, Dr Henry Backhaus, and are at the heart of the collection, held mostly in the Diocesan Chancery. An assessment written by Megan Cardamone of Heritage Victoria said the collection is historically significant with many documents and records linked to the development of the Greater Bendigo region. The collection, which also includes paintings, objects and artefacts, ritual and sacred items and reference books, is also held at St Kilian’s Church and Presbytery and the Sacred Heart Cathedral.

History on hand

THE Bendigo National Swap Meet is back. Every bolt you have ever needed, every spare part is there, you just have to find it. Over Saturday and Sunday, enthusiasts from around the country will flock to the showgrounds, driven by an urge for a bargain or the search for that elusive spring. But it’s not just about cars. Show president Neil Athorn said there will be something for all. “Pretty well anything could turn up,� he said. “Lots of bits and pieces, china pieces. Anything.�

A big part of the event is the car display on Sunday. Concours cars with proud owners on hand will be there to see if their car wins a prize on the Sunday display. “People from all walks of life like to restore motor vehicles,� Mr Athorn said. He said many of the attendees come every year. “The show has been running for 38 years,� he said. “This year we’ll have 1500 volunteers on call including 350 from the YMCA and 350 from Veteran Vintage Classic Clubs Victoria.� Alongside all this, Mr Athorn expects a good

attendance. “We’ll see about 20,000 through the gates on Saturday, and about 3000 on Sunday,� he said. There’s a lot for the family to do with a free jumping castle to take the bounce out of children. “It’s also a great place to find a gift for someone who loves their cars,� Mr Athorn said. “What’s more it’s a pretty relaxed atmosphere.� The Bendigo National Swap Meet is on this Saturday and Sunday at the Bendigo Showgrounds, Holmes Road.

Donna Bailey, the collection’s archivist, said the contents have accrued since the early days of the Catholic church in Bendigo. Under the auspices of the Sandhurst Diocesan Historical Commission, which has been assisted by historian Mal Nolan, the work has been intensified over the past two years. Dr Bailey said she is thrilled to be at the vanguard of what is a major history project for Greater Bendigo. “While the archives start with Dr Backhaus, the German missionary who cared for the Catholic miners, they also reflect the general history of the region. I am especially aware that the role the pioneering women have played has often been neglected and I’m keen to look for their history as well.� Commission chairman Monsignor Frank Marriott praised Dr Bailey. “She is committed to the Sandhurst Diocese to present our history in the best way possible with the ultimate aim of sharing it with the wider community. This will eventually be in conjunction with the broader cathedral precinct project which will incorporate an interpretative centre, which will, in turn, enrich and enhance our local history. “I’m hopeful that other dioceses will, in turn, appreciate the value of their own respective collections.� The history project has been fostered by Bishop of Sandhurst Les Tomlinson, who said that while the church’s spiritual contribution is recognised, it’s social and cultural contributions are now being seen for their role in helping to shape the region. This contribution has been made alongside the faiths of the first Australians and that of other nations. “For this reason our collection has in recent times gained recognition for its contribution in capturing this important national collection,� he said. 4heRITAGe mATTeRS Page 36

Flood maps show properties at risk


ALMOST 700 Epsom and Huntly properties previously thought safe have been identified as at-risk in a major flood. And up to 1500 more across Bendigo could be in same boat. The findings were revealed as part of the release of the Bendigo Urban Flood Study this week. The study is the largest of its kind in Australia, and is amazingly comprehensive. The technology used in the study allowed its authors, the North Central Catchment Management Authority, to model any kind of rain events and their effect on the city. The modelling could even plot where backyard puddles would form. The study, which has been released for six months of community consultation, will be used to help emergency services plan for events and council

plan for development. The study area includes the Bendigo Creek catchment from Kangaroo Flat to Huntly and outlying suburbs of Maiden Gully, Strathfieldsaye and Junortoun. The data collected is expected to trigger a new Greater Bendigo council planning amendment that will be the largest and most comprehensive ever.

North Central CMA chief executive officer Damian Wells said many properties had already been identified as subject to flooding from previous studies and their circumstances are unlikely to change much. “But some properties weren’t previously identified and may now be in line to have new flood-related planning

We want to provide these residents the opportunity to discuss the new flood maps “This is an important project for the Bendigo community,” council chief executive officer Craig Niemann said. “It will not only help us better plan the future growth of the city, but also assist us to more effectively use the funds that we have for fixing existing drainage problems and responding to flood related emergencies.”

controls applied to their property in the future,” he said. “We want to provide these residents the opportunity to discuss the new flood maps with us first.” Public workshops will be held across all areas of the city beginning with the EpsomHuntly community. Residents are encouraged to contact North Central CMA

Council opposes levee levy BendigoWee kly

GREATER Bendigo council will look at Sofa, so forming a lobbying algood for tram liance with other municipalities to oppose any plans to shift responsibility for levee bank funding onto local government. They will also write to Premier Denis Napthine at Residents ma y face repair bill the State Government to express their concerns. The Bendigo Weekly revealed on PAGE ONE: The Weekly’s report. November 1 Epsom and Huntly residents could be slugged millions of dollars more in rates to pay for the rebuild and maintenance of the Bendigo Creek levee. Locals fear the levee, near the Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve, is in poor condition and large parts of the area could flood if it fails. Results of initial testing of the levee are expected to be released by Christmas. In its response to the Inquiry into Flood Mitigation Infrastructure in Victoria, the State Government said it will hand over responsibility of the levee to the Greater Bendigo council. However, it will only contribute financially to any upgrade or maintenance if the local community meets ongoing costs through rates. Council voted at its Wednesday night meeting to write to the Premier and the government expressing its opposition to the proposed changes. Mayor Barry Lyons urged the State Government and Federal Government not to burden ratepayers with added costs. “It is becoming all too common for both sides of politics to shift responsibility onto local government without providing adequate funding support. Ultimately, this leads to higher rates for residents and that is not fair,” he said. “If the council is forced to take funding responsibility for levee banks, then the cost burden will be significant and ongoing. “Council will oppose any such proposal and will seek to work with other municipalities who have similar concerns.” Cr James Williams said the changes were a “great concern”. “(It) adds a layer of responsibility (and) bureaucracy ... in prioritising those levees. It does little to untangle community concerns about the levee and achieve outcomes,” he said. Cr Williams said cost-shifting alarm bells were going off and we “shouldn’t continue to accept it”. Cr Fyffe said it was a “grave concern”. “The State Government is blatantly cost shifting from their sector, their responsibility to local government. We don’t know what will be expected of us yet,” he said. “They are saying to another sphere of government you are going to have to pay for it, when and where we say. It is blatantly unfair. “We are certainly not in a position financially or with our physical resources to accommodate what the state government wants.” There are three urban levees in Greater Bendigo that meet the criteria as defined by the inquiry –the Bendigo Creek from White Hills to Huntly, near the White Hills Cemetery and near Bay Street, Golden Square. – Anthony Radford ISSUE 838 FRIDAY, NOVEM BER

Bendigo a news focus

make an impact gRAnTS are on offer for local young people and organisations wanting to create an event for national Youth Week, which takes place from April 4 to 13, 2014. The grants are designed to help nurture a bright idea and assist in turning it into a local event that can be part of greater Bendigo’s national Youth Week celebrations. The theme for this 2014 national Youth Week is our Voice. our impact. Applications for funding close on Friday February 21, 2014. details from or phone 5434 6468.

Bendigo is playing host to newspaper owners and editors from across the state today. The Bendigo Weekly is hosting the Victorian Country Press Association’s 104th annual conference. The event, which began on Wednesday, will culminate with tonight’s award ceremony at the All Seasons. VCPA president Michael giles said there is little doubt country newspapers, especially those embracing the opportunities of new media, have a bright future. “To borrow from that famous phrase by Mark Twain, reports of the death of newspapers, especially country newspapers, have been

The works will be undertaken by VicRoads and are part of the State government’s Bicycle infrastructure Program funding to connect existing bicycle facilities on the Midland Highway. Minister for Roads Terry Mulder said this is a priority route on Municipal Bicycle network for Bendigo, and recommended in the greater Bendigo’s Cycling and Walking Strategy.

greatly exaggerated,” he said. “no doubt about it, new technology presents its challenges. Social media, online news services, the rise in advertising of real estate, cars and jobs online, shopping online… you name it. “it’s a phenomenon that everyone is having to come to terms with. But the fact is that technology has also saved the newspaper industry time and time again since the first Portland guardian/

observer rolled off the presses in 1842. “offset printing, computerisation, digital photography, online delivery systems; they’ve all helped streamline costs while driving quality to previously unforeseen heights.” Mr giles said country newspapers had a distinct advantage over their daily competitors. “Finding your niche is what it’s all about in this changed media landscape but that’s where country newspapers live already,” he said.

“They’ve always been niche publications. “They’ve made an art form out of reporting local news and promoting local business and, as a result, their readership levels have held up incredibly well.” Weekly general manager Peter Kennedy said Bendigo was proud to host the awards and annual conference. “The local paper is still just as big a part of the community fabric to people in regional and rural Victoria,” he said

“Papers are still the best way to reach into the community to tell a story about a local hero or event, or for government departments to provide details of important and relevant programs and services to a local community. “Country newspapers also resonate the strong sense of community spirit and pride that country people have for their regions, and for what they hold dear to them. “They remain a vibrant source of news, advertising and community spirit.”

Lowdown on city parking


GREATER Bendigo council has revealed plans for two car parks in the Rosalind Park Precinct. The Bendigo Weekly revealed on Monday council has draft plans for a proposed carpark underneath the city’s lawn tennis courts. There are also plans for a multi-storey car park on Water Street, in the Tom Flood Sports Centre complex.

Council is also keen to close the only main car thoroughfare of Rosalind Park, Park Road. The proposal includes closing the road from the Chinese Precinct to Gaol Road. Council also wants to close two streets in the city’s most affluent neighbourhood. It wants to close Stout and Barkly streets as thoroughfares, between Anderson and Hope streets, north of the CBD. There are plans to build “pocket parks” at the end of both streets. There are also plans to build 10 other “pocket parks” or small parks, around the

The reaction: Bendigo Tennis Association general manager Leon Retallick: “It has been a topic of a lot of discussion. We have been involved in the Rosalind Park Masterplan process, but not this,” he said. “Parking anywhere around that area of town is absolutely a debacle and they have to do something about it. “We have never had formal discussions with council regarding the lawn tennis site.

We haven’t sat down at any point with anybody from council to have them indicate what their plans are for this site.” Bendigo Chinese Association president Anita Jack: “In the past, when Park Road was a two-way street there was reasonable traffic flow in this area,” she said. “Since it has been a one-way

street, the traffic flow has been reduced considerably and the impact of closing the street, from what we see here at the museum on a daily basis, would have very little impact. “ Stout St resident and former mayor Daryl McClure: “We don’t feel the street should be blocked off. It is hard enough to get around this area now because of all the restrictions on Barnard Street. “The intersection with Hope

St still enables us to move in and out of the street.” “The naturestrips along Hope St are wide, so if council wants to create attractive park-like developments, there is scope for them to do that there,” he said. “Council has been consistently bad in maintaining the pocket-park type of space that exist around the city now. “While all of this sounds good, the maintenance is not good and with council’s bad track record on this, one would be apprehensive if they create more.”

FASHION POLICE: Erin Coleman, Mark Smeaton, Georgie Taylor and Craig Gaffee show off the new Victoria Police uniform. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

POLICE in Bendigo are among the first in the Western Region to wear their new dark-blue uniform, stepping out in the new look this week. The clothing was unveiled in December last year, marking the first significant change in Victoria Police’s uniform for more than 30 years. Senior Constable Mark Smeaton of Bendigo Police spent his first week in operational kit this week and gave it the thumbs up. “It’s good to have the choice of operational kit or office kit.” Police Academy recruits have also begun to graduate in the new uniform. The new uniforms in salute blue are the result of feedback from members and collaboration with industry experts. Last year 150 members across the state participated in wearer trials, testing out shirts, trousers, caps and garments to wear under police vests. The new uniform will be rolled out progressively across the state until May 2014.

Police target distraction FIVE fatal distractions are high on Victoria Police radars today. Speed, impaired driving, driver distractions, fatigue and seatbelt offences are topping Victoria’s Police four-operation agenda. Victorian Police are rolling out the first phase – Operation RAID –of a two-month campaign to remove all impaired drivers. Bendigo Police Senior Sergeant Paul Gardiner said Operation RAID targeted drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol. “The campaign promotes to motorists that they need to do the right things during the festive season. This includes seeking alternative transport methods when under the influence,” he said. “There will be a strong emphasis on random breath testing. Mobile breath testing units will be used in outlying areas. “Speeding, mobile use and other offences will also be caught. “The operation is about educating motorists to think about and do, the right things.” Operations Break Up, Crossroads and Fresh Start will follow the Operation RAID, until January 5. Operation RAID is a state-wide policing effort also linking with other operations across South Australia and New South Wales. Sen Sgt Gardiner said traditionally, Christmas is a high-risk period on Victoria’s roads and urges drivers to take caution. “If motorists are not doing the right thing, we will catch them.”

Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first female federal member settles in

NEW HOME: Lisa Chesters in her Parliament House office this week.


BENDIGOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S first female federal MP, Lisa Chesters, made her debut in the parliament this week. Ms Chesters entered the House of Representatives and was given the plum seat of directly behind the despatch-box speaker, always visible in the main camera shot. Although nervous, Ms Chesters said she was proud to take her seat for the first time in parliament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be elected as the first woman to represent Bendigo at the federal-government level is a great honour. It demonstrates that in Bendigo, gender is no longer a barrier to being elected to local, state or federal parliament,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ms Chestersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mum, sister and campaign managers, Bill Murray and Jacki Dimond, sat

in the public gallery while she was sworn in. The Clean Energy Legislation, the mining tax, superannuation contributions, small business tax break reductions, and the Schoolkids Bonus topped the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debate this week. Yet, Ms Chesters said the first week of parliament had been days of repeals and attempts to cut legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Abbott Government is proposing to repeal and scrap these measures and so many more,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am concerned the effects of the removal of the Clean Energy Legislation will have on Central Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industry, in particular the solar industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The repeal of the Schoolkids Bonus means the average Australian family with two kids will be $1230 worse off

every year and $15000 worse off over the life of their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education. This will hit struggling families hard.â&#x20AC;? Ms Chesters said parliament had a few surprises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots and lots of little things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know until you get to Parliament House. If you want to get the Speakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attention during a division you place a piece of paper on your head,â&#x20AC;? Ms Chesters said. Despite a crammed schedule, Ms Chesters is seeking meetings with ministers to discuss vital funding for key Bendigo projects. Back in Bendigo, Ms Chesters kicks off her listening post program today at 3.30pm at Woolworths on Howard Street, Epsom. Ms Chesters will return to parliament on Monday to deliver her maiden speech.

Councillor acts to solve burden on Lake Tom Thumb

Action on bird row By CHRISTINE McGINN

LAKE Tom Thumb’s island bird infestation will be up for public consultation today after a failed attempt last Wednesday. Greater Bendigo council held a meeting with the Department of Environment and Primary Industries to resolve the bird infestation. Yet, no residents or key stakeholders were invited the meeting. Council Presentations and Assets director Darren Fuzzard said miscommunication led to last week’s failed consultation. Despite hiccups, Eaglehawk residents will meet on the lake with council and DEPI at 11am today to discuss the birds. Wildlife management consultant Ian Temby will attend today’s meet-

ing to give insight into managing the flock. Cr Peter Cox asked councillors to receive the residents’ petition and meet with concerned locals about the influx of protected birds at Wednesday’s council

Wary of a Lake Neangar repeat, Cr Cox said he was disappointed action had not been taken sooner. “I don’t want the issue to take years [like Lake Neangar], something needs to be done

I don’t want the issue to take years, something needs to be done now meeting. Cr Cox requested council to clean up the lake and prepare a report within one meeting. Despite previously passing two motions to host community consultation about the lake, Cr Cox said he had been given reassurance council would act. “We need to come up with a solution with all parties involved,” he said.

now,” he said. Mr Fuzzard said council was working with DEPI to find an appropriate solution to the flock. “We still need to talk through what is needed,” he said. “DEPI wants to know what the community concerns are... and pending on that, will give an appropriate response,” he said. Yet DEPI said they

had provided council with a range of management options. Eaglehawk resident John Brook said the Tom Thumb Lake island was merely covering a mine. “There was a large digger’s hole, not very deep there. The island was put on top of the mine years ago,” he said. “There was no particular reason... it was a good idea at the time.” Council could decide to remove the man-made island providing no damage was caused to the fauna and flora. “If the island does not have any significance it could be an option. But most things happen for a significant reason though,” Mr Fuzzard said. “It is an important issue and we want to find an appropriate solution.”

Surgery hits the mark CELEBRATING five years of patient care, Bendigo Day Surgery marked the milestone on November 11. Nursing director Sally McInerney said they were excited to celebrate their fifth birthday with balloons and cake. “It was a decorative celebration but more importantly it recognised BDS’ successes,” she said. Three hundred babies have been born through Central Victoria’s Monash In Vitro Fertilisation procedure at the clinic since 2009. The Bendigo Day Surgery was the first purpose-built IVF facility in the city. BDS anaesthetic doctor Keith Davenport and wife Olga are expecting their second IVF child after successfully having their first child, Lauren, at BDS last year. “We had a couple of goes in Auckland but when we moved to Bendigo we tried again,” he said. “With two IVF cycles at the BDS, we are lucky to be having two children out of it.” A New Zealander, Dr Davenport, said they were grateful for the local IVF services to start their family. Ms McInerney said it was important for the business to keep providing more surgeons and specialists to service the community’s needs.

Dig deep for the ses SeS bendigo volunteers will be out in force tomorrow rattling tins to passing motorists and pedestrians to raise much needed funds. between 8am and 4pm will be time to dig deep for coins at Charing Cross. Money raised will go towards upgrading their rescue four wheel drive. The SeS requires rescue vehicles to be upgraded once reaching 10 years of age. This is a regulation for all SeS vehicles as they are used for many things including rescuing people, and must be in perfect working order, to assist the general public in their time of need. The bendigo SeS will upgrade their Nissan Patrol for a newer model which will be involved in road rescue, flood rescue, as well as many storm and weather related emergencies. over the years, the bendigo SeS has had a great response to the tin rattles, and all day long, they get a general “Thanks” from motorists for all their hard work.

Councils prepare for emergencies NeighbouriNg councils took part in greater bendigo council’s emergency management preparations on Monday. The Shire of Campaspe, Loddon Shire, Department of human Services and red Cross met to prepare for summer.

emergency relief planning and the long-term recovery associated with emergency events were high priorities. each agency discussed their role in an emergency, past experiences, present arrangements and together determined future emer-

gency management possibilities. The tour assessed case studies and recent events, identified the resources and locations required of a relief centre. Participants worked through a relief centre scenario and reviewed stake-

holder emergency management checklists. The collaborative approach allowed the councils to better assess support and resources in their communities. residents are also urged to prepare their emergency plans for the fire season.

Locals are encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences of the delivery of government services for people of culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds. The Victorian Multicultural Commission will host the November 20 forum at the La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre auditorium on View Street. VMC chairman Chin Tan said

Title in new hands By CHRISTINE McGINN

VICTORIA’s Governor, Attorney General, Aboriginal Affairs Minister and Dja Dja Wurrung representatives will recognise the Dja Dja Wurrung Native Title settlement in Bendigo today. Governor Alex Chernov will ceremonially transfer the land to the Dja Dja Wurrung people, as the traditional land custodians. “The finalisation of this settlement agreement is a watershed moment in the ongoing relationship between the Dja Dja Wurrung people, the Victorian Government, and the local community,” Mr Chernov said. “I commend all involved in the agreement for their goodwill and effort in seeing this project through to completion.” The Dja Dja Wurrung owners will mark the historic commencement day with a smoking ceremony, traditional dance, a welcome to country and speeches. Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation chairman Graham Atkinson said it was a historic day for his people. “Our place in our landscape and its history are formally acknowledged with the legal recognition that we are the traditional owners of our country,” he said. “We will now have a say in the management of our country and be able to protect our heritage for all future generations. “Today signals the start of a new future for the Dja Dja Wurrung and a new permanent relationship with the state and people of Victoria.” The Bendigo Weekly revealed

last week the Prime Minister Tony Abbott had been invited to the event, with sources hopeful of his attendance. Despite speculation, Mr Abbott will attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in sri Lanka today. The Department of Justice will host the national commencement event at Rosalind Park from noon to 2pm. Attorney General Robert Clark said the settlement was

I commend all involved in the agreement for their goodwill the first Victoria land settlement without the need for the court to determine the native title. “This agreement is testament to the spirit of cooperation and positivity from both the Dja Dja Wurrung people and the Victorian Government,”he said. “The agreement formally recognises the Dja Dja Wurrung as the traditional owners of this land and provides a framework for their ongoing role in managing these Crown Lands.” Under the settlement, the Dja Dja Wurrung people are recognised as Central Victoria’s traditional land owners.

The government and Dja Dja Wurrung representatives signed the new agreement under the 2010 Victorian Traditional Owner settlement Act in March in Bendigo. About three per cent of all Victorian Crown land, valued at $9.65 million, was settled under the agreement. Aboriginal Affairs Minister Jeanette Powell said the agreement provided economic opportunities for Dja Dja Wurrung people while ensuring a permanent connection to ancestral land. “This agreement is consistent with the government’s Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework and our commitment to work in partnership with Aboriginal communities to develop sustainable futures, increase access to land and reach native title settlements,” Ms Powell said. “We have now paved the way for joint management of six national parks and reserves. “The settlement agreement is a very positive outcome for all Victorians.” Mr Clark said the Dja Dja Wurrung traditional owner representatives, Native Title services Victoria and the government had detailed negotiations to finalise the agreement. “The Victorian Government is pleased to have reached this settlement in a way that has avoided costly litigation, while assisting the traditional owner community to develop a sustainable future,” he said. The Dja Dja Wurrung people will withdraw existing Native Title claims and will not make further claims.

FUNDING BOOST: Minister Jeanette Powell came bearing gifts.

New protection in place ABORIGINAL heritage and culture in Central and Western Victoria will remain protected after a state funding boost last week. The Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation will receive $50,000 as a Registered Aboriginal Party for the next year. “Funding provided to Registered Aboriginal Parties supports their work protecting and managing Aboriginal heritage and culture across Victoria,” Aboriginal Affairs Minister Jeanette Powell said. “Protecting the unique cultural heritage of Aboriginal people is important for all Victorians.” Member for Northern Victorian Damian Drum said the government and the Dja Dja Wurrung were building a strong relationship. “We will be building on our friendship again next week with

a joint ceremony to acknowledge the historic settlement of the Dja Dja Wurrung Native Title claim,” he said. The Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 review aims to enhance the role of RAPs as part of the governments’ response. Mrs Powell said reforms to the Act would improve recognition, protection and conservation of Aboriginal culture and heritage in Victoria. “The Office of Aboriginal Affairs Victoria is currently developing models for more sustainable funding options for all RAPs,” she said. “It’s important we ensure that Aboriginal people have a clear voice in managing cultural heritage and that’s why we are committed to supporting groups such as Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation.”

The next big thing in real estate Long Gully and California Gully looking at a bright future in housing prices TWO of Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most affordable suburbs are well on their way to becoming the next big things in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing market. Data obtained by the Bendigo Weekly shows Long Gully and California Gully are two of the rising stars of the city. According to RP Data, Long Gully topped the list in terms of median value growth for the year to August.

They are on the hospital side of town... and the rental returns are strong The suburbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s median value jumped 10.8 per cent for the year, to $234,537. California Gullyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s median value increased 6.9 per cent for the year, putting it in sixth spot.

HIGH DEMAND: Clive Martin In between them were Strathfieldsaye (nine per cent), Ironbark (8.1), Quarry Hill (8.1) and Kennington (seven). Perennial solid performers such as Flora Hill, Strathdale, Bendigo, Epsom and Maiden Gully all recorded strong growth in the year, but came in under California and Long gullies. Bendigo real estate agent Clive Martin of CR Martin Real Estate is in little doubt Long Gully and California

Gully are hot property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certain parts of these suburbs will soon be in high demand,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are on the hospital side of town, they are priced well and the rental returns are strong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long Gully will become the next area, I believe, the next sought-after area to buy in.â&#x20AC;? Mr Martin said California Gully would soon follow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next to go will be California Gully,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those two will be the next big subdivision areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had Eaglehawk and Epsom, and with interest rates on hold for the next 12 months, the affordability of these suburbs will be attractive in the years to come.â&#x20AC;? However, when it comes to median house values, the usual suspects are at the top of the list. Maiden Gully is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most expensive suburb, with a median value of $420,946 for August, according to RP Data. Second is Strathfieldsaye ($414,552), followed by Strathdale ($370,378), Ascot ($361,518) and Spring Gully ($349,725).

ROOM TO MOVE: Your Land has produced an impressive development here.

Chance to own the Last Piece THE final residential subdivision in Golden Square has gone on the market. Aptly called The Last Piece, developers Your Land have started selling the last available large block of land in the suburb. The Kronk Street subdivision has been lauded for its deft design and innovation. Mark Erskine of Your Land said extra time taken in planning and development had achieved a residential solution that will benefit the entire area. “Our team placed great thought and dedication into developing a unique offering

at The Last Piece,” he said. “We are proud of what we have created and thrilled the council and potential purchasers have been able to grasp our vision.” Just 56 home sites are available with a premium feel from entry point through to allotment selection with extra large lots available up to 880 square metres. Greater Bendigo council Planning and Development director Prue Mansfield praised the development. “It is easy to support developments that deliver the council’s adopted strategies and Planning Scheme re-

quirements,” she said. “This project is also a good example of the developer working with us early in the process, to resolve all the issues before plans become locked in”. Entry to The Last Piece community will be over an environmentally-integrated bridge and the development will feature a cascading terraced park with central passive open space. Park benches and soothing water elements will delight residents as will the direct access to Specimen Hill Trail, ensuring locals and visitors alike enjoy the natural surrounds.

Hospital parking still in the mix The ideas floated in the draft concept Structure Plan for the hospital Precinct have arisen from preliminary discussions we have had with the community. The draft has now been released for broader public discussion. The ideas are not set in concrete and they have not been formally considered by council. Rather, we want to hear from the community about whether these ideas are worthy of further consideration or if improvements or other ideas should also be looked at. The information we gather will be considered as we develop the hospital Precinct Structure Plan. The plan will be put out for further public comment before being formally considered by council. It is wrong to say that council is proposing to build car parks and close roads, as council has not formally considered these ideas. The final plan, once adopted, will be for the long-term and might itself be modified as circumstances change over time. I encourage interested people to read the draft structure plan and

to have their say on it. Details are available online at www.bendigo.vic. Craig Niemann, CEO, Greater Bendigo council.

Blues and roots the best We sit here writing this letter exhausted but happy after an absolutely amazing weekend enjoying all that the Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival has offered. Colin Thompson and his team have given Bendigo and Bendigonians a festival to be proud of and we thank them profusely for their efforts. There really was something for everyone with the Rosalind Park event on Saturday the perfect way to spend a day with the family. All weekend, wherever we looked people of all ages were smiling and having fun. Thanks to everyone involved, we can’t wait for next year. David and Eliza Hughes, Bendigo.

What national emergency? A “national emergency?” Really?


We are told that the economy is struggling, that climate change is “the greatest moral, economic and social challenge  of our time”, and that we needed to stop boat people coming to Australia. Yet only in regard to “boat people” is the term “national emergency” applied. “...[a] Coalition government will treat the border protection crisis as a national emergency and tackle it with the focus and energy that an emergency demands” – the Coalition’s Operation Sovereign Borders, July, 2013. Perhaps we need to take a deep breath and seriously consider if the arrival of a tiny proportion of the world’s most vulnerable people really is a national emergency for Australia. each year Australia welcomes well over 200,000 economic migrants with open arms, admits asylum seekers who come by plane without comment, yet a few thousand “boat people” are considered a “national emergency”. That is incomprehensible, and illogical. Why are these people so unwelcomed by a usually-generous Australian population? Jan Govett, Epsom.

Comments on the Bendigo Weekly website are, as ever, varied and welcome. This week the comments focussed on the article “Lines drawn over condom debate”. It is good to see this issue is still being discussed. A public health approach to sexuality matters for the sake of the whole community. Please note that contraception can be hormonal (the pill, Implanon, IUD) or surgical (tubal ligation, vasectomy) so contraception is not automatically safe sex, or the prevention of STIs. Using the terms interchangeably can be misleading and lead to harm, such as complacency about STI prevention. Contraception is not a concern

for same-sex couples but safe sex still is. - Linda Kirkman We need to make it easy for people to make the right choices for their health and well being. How can having vending machines encourage “risky behaviour”, unless people start planking on them? Risky behaviour is having unprotected sex that could result in diseases that could potentially affect more than one person. Wake up Cr Leach. And who said it is for young people? I am sure there are people in different age

brackets that would be “popping a coin in the vending machine” when appropriate. - Jan Henderson Simple. Keep your legs together and keep it in your pants. It’s called self discipline. - Rodney Jones Ms Kirkman is there any evidence or previous studies to suggest that providing condom vending machines will decrease STDs with young people as this hasn’t been mentioned in the article? If so has it been peer reviewed? - Peter


this bendigo life By Christine slattery Bendigo health Carer support services member and author of the introduction to Hidden Heroes – stories of young carers.

STATISTICS show that if you walk into any classroom in Australia you’ll find at least two young people who are carers for at least one family member who has a disability, chronic illness, is frail, aged, affected by mental illness, or has an alcohol or other drug problem. Of course you won’t notice any outward difference. Pass a young carer in the street and you wouldn’t look twice. But behind the scenes it’s a different story. Many of these young people are forced to take on responsibility way beyond their years, have to deal with life and death situations, find it hard to make lasting friendships, and may even suffer physical/verbal abuse from family members. Carer Support Services at Bendigo Community health began the Young Carers Program six years ago with just three young people. Since then over 200 young carers have been in the program, but this still represents a small

The great strength of this program is that it creates an environment where no one is judged. The walls come down and the masks come off. For most of the participants it’s the only respite from the weighty burden of their everyday lives. This is an important publication for so many reasons. Not only to promote the Young Carers Program, and to increase school and community awareness, but as a cathartic experience for those involved. The telling of these stories in a new book has proven to be great relief for many of the young authors. For some it has helped them build better relationships with parents; many who admitted they had no idea how their kids were feeling. A lot of young carers revealed that they don’t want to open up to their parents for fear of creating even more stress. As a result of this new-found communication, more families are accepting respite which is transforming relationships – particularly in single-parent families. I count every day I work alongside these young people a true privilege.

percentage of young people in caring roles. The sad truth is that many young carers live a reclusive existence, caught up in the day-today challenges of their home life. They really are the hidden heroes of our community. The Young Carers Program was created to fill a huge gap in these young people’s lives. It not only provides them with the opportunity to develop friendships with others who understand their situation, but as many of the participants will attest, “to get away from the world”. It gives young people a chance to do many of the things they would normally miss out on, for example outings to the movies, 10-pin bowling, laser tag and skating. For many it’s the first time they’ve had such experiences; things that most of their peers just take for granted. each year, the 12-and-over group go away on a camp – a transformative experience for many of the young people. For some it’s their first time away from home and therefore hugely emotional. It’s a chance for everyone to leave behind the responsibilities of home, cut loose and have some fun. And boy do we have fun.

Master Builders Association of Victoria - Bendigo Section

Out in the open WHEN the Bendigo Weekly broke the story about the planned car park under the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawn tennis courts on Monday, we knew it would spark debate. Anything to do with parking in Bendigo usually does. This one, however, has an added twist. Over the past decade or so, a handful of people have raised the idea of a car park either on or under the tennis courts. The latest of those was thencouncillor Bruce Phillips just before last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elections. The difference this week was it was the first time any official council document had listed it as an option. Another option was to build an above-ground multi-storey building on the Tom Flood Centre behind Coliban Water. Both of these ideas are good, but council must be careful, on

two fronts. Firstly, any encroachment on Rosalind Park comes with its own problems. The park was created with an act of state parliament, so anything that lessens its footprint also needs to have parliamentary approval. This process is usually accompanied with a throng of public concern. Secondly, there is a Rosalind Park Masterplan currently in the works. Some members of the committee working on that masterplan were surprised this week when the Weekly revealed the car park options to them. They claim the car park idea was never mentioned at any Rosalind Park Masterplan meeting or discussion. Adding fuel to the conspiracy is that the October meeting of the

RPMP committee was postponed because more time was needed for consultation and concept plan development. Interestingly, between that planned meeting, its postponement and the date of the next RPMP committee meeting, this car park idea was made public. It may just be a coincidence, but it has a lot of people involved in the RPMP worried. Council and its planners need to be wary of dismissing public input at any stage, embryonic or otherwise. It found that out the hard way with the new Hargreaves Mall, the Epsom supermarket and Walk Bendigo. These two projects â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the RPMP and the Hospital Precinct Structure Plan (which is where the car parks came to light) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are more important.

pk Plan ahead for floods with Peter Kennedy

FOR years, we in the media have written about local government complaining about cost shifting imposed upon the third tier of government by the other levels of government, and probably for a lot of the time the municipal moans and accompanying column centimetres fell on deaf ears. But the current concerns of the Greater Bendigo council about a proposal to shift responsibility for funding important levee banks to local government are both very real, and very worrying, unless additional funding is provided to councils to acknowledge the additional works they will be required to undertake. Greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons says the cost burden will be both â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;significant and ongoingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In other words itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to hurt. Cost shifting has already had a tangible impact on local government in recent years in the areas of Home and Community Care funding, in the funding of our libraries, on road maintenance programs

and in many other ways. But the new Victorian Floodplain Management Strategy, borne out of the 2010 and 2011 flood incidents, dictates the following roles and responsibilities for the management and ongoing maintenance of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s levees and associated flood mitigation infrastructure:

land by private individuals through the Water Act. â&#x20AC;˘ As potential beneficiaries, the State and Commonwealth Governments may contribute to the cost of construction, but will not contribute to the cost of management. Victorians have already

Rural levees on private land will remain the responsibility of landholders â&#x20AC;˘ Privately built rural levees on private land will remain the responsibility of landholders and will be owned and managed by them. â&#x20AC;˘ Priority levees will be managed by local government, unless already formally managed by another authority. They wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become priority levees until there are arrangements in place to formally manage them. â&#x20AC;˘ CMAs will not have a role in the management and maintenance of levees, other than to regulate the maintenance of structures on Crown

seen their household insurance premiums soar in the wake of the recent floods. Perhaps the government needs to also talk to the insurance industry about how they can work together to reduce the incidence of flooding, using some of that extra money we are all now paying via our premiums as a pre-emptive strike against future incidences of flooding. It should also be their job, and responsibility, to reduce the risk we taxpayers and policy holders face. After all, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we pay them for.

Horrie at war

Benefits of lemon and water T

Horrie the War Dog by Roland Perry (Allen & Unwin, $27.99),


ORRIE had me hooked from the start. Though a true story, the book reads very much like a novel and is in a prime position to be made into a movie. Horrie of the book’s name is a mutt of a dog discovered in 1940 in the Libyan desert by two diggers out on their motorbikes. He was taken back to camp where he became a mascot. Horrie earned his name from a bunch of diggers, nicknamed the rebels, of the 2/1st Machine Gun Battalion. Around camp, Horrie became a bit of a friend, but really came into his own during attacks by enemy aircraft. His acute hearing enabled him to hear and warn the troops of incoming aircraft. He would give warning, bark at the attacking aircraft, before taking cover himself.

As you can imagine, this made him pretty popular among the diggers. Through various theatres of war where he fought, Private Jim Moody, who had found Horrie, smuggled the pet. Including back to Australia in 1945. Author Roland Perry has gone to great lengths to build the tension. “Moody returned with the Rebels to Australia after fighting the Japanese, Mr Perry said. “He was approached to bring the dog out of hiding to raise funds for the Sydney Red Cross. “Horrie was already

well known as a ‘war hero’ and was about to feature in a book.” Moody was concerned because Horrie had not been quarantined on entering Australia, and thought the Department of Health would have something to say about it. But bringing the dog out in the open may have signed his death warrant. Officialdom caught up and Horrie was brought in and ordered to be destroyed. To head it off, Moody tried everything. But rules are rules. The vet who ordered the destruction, Ron Wardle, received scores of death threats following the deed. An old soldier of Sydney’s Chatswood ended his letter with: “I hope and pray that when your day comes I will have the pleasure to put you to sleep in the same way that little mate [Horrie] died.” But would the diggers really have let their little mate die? - Steve Kendall

HERE are mountains of diet advice, particularly since the ease of information access via the internet. Many nutritionists and dietitians agree about the benefits of drinking a glass of warm water with added lemon juice to kick start your metabolism each the day. It is advised to drink the water 20 to 30 minutes before eating breakfast. Lemon can also relieve temporary digestive disorders including bloating, abdominal cramps, or a burning sensation. Drinking lemon water regularly may help prevent constipation and diarrhoea. Three or four squeezed lemon can help relieve menstrual pain. Lemon can be a natural antiseptic medicine, to cure problems related to skin. Lemon can assist in anti-aging, removing wrinkles and blackheads. Squeeze lemon juice on gums to stop gum bleeding. To overcome sore throat, you can try gargling with using half a cup of lemon juice. And some points on drinking water.



Bendigo Weekly

You can help a lot of health issues by drinking more water. One job of your liver is to pick up the slack for the kidneys, which need plenty of water to work properly. If the kidneys are water-deprived, the liver has to do their work along with its own, lowering its total productivity. It then can’t metabolise fat as quickly or efficiently as it could when the kidneys were pulling their own weight. If you allow this to happen, not only are you being unfair to your liver, but you’re also setting yourself up to store fat. In the first few days of drinking more water than normal,

you will constantly run to the bathroom. Yet, your body will slowly reach its “breakthrough point”, removing water it was holding onto in your ankles, hips and thighs. Spread your water consumption throughout the day. Try to pick three or four times a day when you can have a big glass of water, and then sip in between. Drink when you’re not yet thirsty. Caffeine cannot replace water consumption. Water flushes out impurities in your skin, leaving you with a clear, glowing complexion.

Films with narrative



GREAT opportunity to see a range of rich and diverse films is being provided by the organisers of CLIFF – the Castlemaine Local and International Film Festival. The inaugural film festival to be held from November 21 to 24 and will be held at Castlemaine’s much loved, glorious old venue - Theatre Royal. “As far as themes are concerned, we wanted to concentrate on films with a strong narrative,” festival organiser Neil Boyack said. “We didn’t want slick Hollywood films dominated by special effects, but rather films with a strong story to tell.” Over the weekend 14 films will be shown including the short films of Aboriginal artist, Richard Bell. To be introduced by Gary Foley, the films variously titled Scratch an Aussie, The Dinner Party and Broken English are provocative and confronting. Other films include The Canyons directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver and Raging Bull) and written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho). Add to this lineup the actor Lindsay Lohan, then you have an edgy, some say, cold

film. Another film to watch out for is the JFK documentary, The Two Kennedys, Propaganda. At the heart of the festival is the Clifftop Film Competition which will feature the entries of local filmmakers. From a variety of categories which includes younger filmmakers, you will be able to see the screenings of finalists’ works. All enquiries - Dianne Dempsey

GENERAL MEETINGS FOR VARIOUS COMMITTEES OF MANAGEMENT & ELECTIONS A number of local Committees of Management will hold general meetings over the coming weeks to present annual reports and to elect no less than three (3) or more than nine (9) persons to form new Committees of Management for terms of three (3) years. Each of the current Committee of Management terms expire on 14 January 2014. All positions will be declared open and nominations will be accepted prior to or on the day of the meeting. Nominations from women are encouraged. Further information, nomination forms and nominee declarations may be obtained by contacting the local Department of Environment and Primary Industries office on 5430 4444 or by contacting the respective Committee Secretary.

New look for the school with a heart T

HIRTY students, three teachers and two integration aids are celebrating their new, vibrant primary school. Raywood Primary School received about $1.2 million to build a new school as part of Labor’s Better Education Revolution. Principal Lynne Colbert said the funding transformed the school facilities and educational resources.

“The brand new school has been built next to the old twoclassroom school, the staff room was a shelter shed,” she said. “This is a brand-new school with open-spaced classrooms, project room, reading room, administration offices, staff room, sick bay, toilets and huge storage areas. The original classrooms are being used for music and art. “The new buildings are magnificent.”

Mrs Colbert said the “stateof-the-art” facilities have dramatically changed the school’s atmosphere. “A lot has changed. It is really looking flash,” she said. “You walk in and think ‘what a great place to learn’.” The school will celebrate its official opening on November 30 at 10am. Mrs Colbert will lead a school tour, host a photographic his-


torical exhibition of the school since 1877 while providing light refreshments. Despite being small, Mrs Colbert said the size allows for more individualised, one-on-one education. “The school has a happy, healthy, nurturing and safe environment,” she said. “The students are taught to care. We are the school with a heart.”

Pup zips into space

Illustration: “Wildey”

There’s a new puppy at home, and it’s taking time to teach him the rules of the realm


T has been a tough job, but the space left by our late pug has been filled. Enter Zip, a young male kelpie who was given to us in exchange for drugs and services. The long-suffering Mrs Kendall is a veterinarian, and people often think it’s fine to trade. When we lived in Scotland, we were often paid in salmon or venison, which livened up the table somewhat. Anyway, Zip was probably a bit young to be away from mum, so his transition to life with the Kendalls was sudden. No more mum to run to, it’s just his rubber feed bucket to sleep on with a hot pad. The first couple of weeks were a bit tough for all of us. He had about 20 craps a day, and couldn’t work out what a walk meant. I think he was a bit poorly, but has bounced right back now and jumps through the grass and chases the cats and plays with us in that rough and tumble kind of way. We had a rabbit boarding with us for a couple of weeks, she only left this week, and Zip thought she was marvellous.

She was caged for her own safety, but Zip thought nothing of licking her through the cage, Wabbit didn’t seem to mind, in fact she rather liked it. Then he thought it would add to the fun to nip Wabbit. End of game, Wabbit thumped the ground and Zip ran away. Funnily enough, Zip has the same effect on the sheep. He will be a working dog when he’s trained, so he has been introduced to our six newly-shorn pets. Piglet and Lamb Chop did not think much of him at all and thumped their feet in protest, see the pattern here. They had seen bigger kelpies in action rounding them up, so I am sure the memory was transferred to Zip. He seemed oblivious to any animosity and ran along with tail wagging. I think I can happily say he has become a member of the family in his time with us, and I hope enjoys the life of a farm dog. He has his own spot ready in the ute cab, still covered in pug hair, he has his own kennel, plenty of blankets a couple of squeaky toys and a good

Dear Dotty, I keep reading articles about how getting old is the best thing that can ever happen to you, how for the first time in your life you are free to pursue your interests, but the reality is that when you get old you get wrinkles, your bones ache, parts drop off, and then you die. Heather, Strathdale

supply of quality food. Mrs K does not skimp on animal nutrition. The annoying English lady from up the hill upset Mrs K this week, during a visit she was discussing the state of the horses. “Ho ho, were her parents crossed with an elephant?” she

said, with no thought of upsetting Cilla the horse’s feelings. Mrs K was not impressed. I think she will be waiting for Zip to grow up so he can bite the annoying English lady on the bum. That’s one job around the farm I am not prepared to do. twitter: @stevekendall1

Dear Heather, I thoroughly agree with you. There seems to be a general movement to disguise the reality of life under the cover of euphemisms. And we don’t even die anymore, we “pass away”, the implication being that we drift into another world filled with ice creams and lollipops. And by the way, no one has any problems anymore have you noticed that? They have issues, issues? If your car is hanging over a cliff edge and you feel as though you’re about to sneeze that’s a bloody big problem, right? Oh and families don’t fight anymore they have conflicts or they’re in con-

flict. And the situation has to be resolved; rather than sorted once and for bloody all. Even footballers can’t have a dirty big brawl in the middle of the ground, they have melees. And when people commit terrible crimes they aren’t sent to prison they’re sent to a correctional facility – which makes me imagine a line-up of quietly spoken, perfectly upright, ex-prisoners neatly marching out to face the world, nicely corrected. Bureaucracies have also figured out a way of disguising the fact that there is a lot of misery out there. Welfare problems are conducted in the name of Human Services which suggests to me that there is another department out here – of Inhuman Services. We’re not the only ones, dear Heather to rail against euphemisms. For confirmation that you’re not going mad refer to Don Watson’s books – Death Sentence and the Dictionary of Weasel Words are a good place to start. Twitter: @DearDotty

Newspapers Connecting 013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE COUNTRY Communities is the theme for this

Thank you to our sponsors

year’s Victorian Country Press Association (VCPA) conference, to be held in Bendigo on Friday November 15. The VCPA includes almost 80 papers from across regional and rural Victoria, and it is the first time the organisation’s annual conference has been held in Bendigo. It’s also an important time in the evolution of the newspaper industry as a rapidly changing industry continues to throw up challenges and opportunities. In many instances, the local paper is one of the oldest and most established businesses in the large and small communities that make up the VCPA. These papers have a long and proud history of serving the community, and have been an integral part of life for many for as long as most would care to remember. Now, our newspaper businesses have transitioned into information businesses, as the industry embraces, rather than rejects, the internet and all it has to offer. But the role of newspaper organisations, and now their ever-changing websites, as a conduit through which important local news and information can be obtained remains the same. The local paper is still just as big a part of the community fabric to people in regional and rural Victoria. Papers are still the best way to reach into the community to tell a story about a local hero or event, or for government departments and councils to provide details of important and relevant programs and services to a local community. Country newspapers also resonate the strong sense of community spirit and pride that country people have for their regions, and for what they hold dear to them. They remain a vibrant source of news, advertising and community spirit. In recent times, newspapers have

partnered with the Victorian government to provide even greater promotion for initiatives aimed at saving lives, such as the highly successful Transport Accident Commission’s ‘Talk the Toll Down’ campaign, a move that won warm praise from both the TAC’s Chief Executive Officer, Janet Dore, and the then Victorian Premier, Ted Baillieu. This support is real and tangible because country newspapers are far closer to their readers than their metropolitan counterparts, and the relationships extend way beyond business. Combined with a very real understanding, and respect, for the power of newspapers and their ability to influence their readerships, and it’s a winwin situation for all parties.

They are, from left, VCPA Executive Director Paul McEvey, Paul Thomas (Star News Group), Matt Jenkins (Benalla Ensign), Dr Napthine, President of Country Press Australia Bob Yeates (Bairnsdale Advertiser) and President of the VCPA Michael Giles (South Gippsland Sentinel-Times).

were your only advertising options until radio and TV came along. But the Buggles got it wrong when they claimed in 1979 that “Video killed the radio star”. Radio simply found its new niche in drive time and it hasn’t looked back. Finding your niche is what it’s all about in this changed media landscape but that’s where country newspapers live already. They’ve always been niche publications.

They’ve made an art form out of reporting local news and promoting local business and, as a result, their readership levels have held up incredibly well. They celebrate their local readers’ successes, they campaign long and hard for change and improvement in their communities, they scrutinise the performance of local officials, they share the grief and joy of their neighbours… where would we be without our local newspaper? Everybody in the country reads the ‘local’ whether they get it home delivered or they flip through a copy at McDonalds or the hairdressers. Australia Scan strategy planner and media consultant, David Chalke, recently said “local is the new black” and while rural and regional newspapers continue to do ‘local’ better than anyone else,

they’ll continue to be read and trusted by their communities and, just as importantly, used by businesses and government to get their message through. The Victorian Country Press Association believes that country newspapers, especially those that embrace the opportunities of new media, have a bright future and the association is delighted to be bringing its 104th annual conference to historic Bendigo, in the golden heart of regional Victoria. The theme for this year’s conference, on Thursday and Friday, November 14 and 15 is ‘Country papers, connecting communities’ and while they continue to play that role, they’ll continue to have a valued and trusted place on kitchen tables and on smart phones right around the country. -Michael Giles VCPA President

The power of local papers R

EGIONAL newspapers are, for the most part, being left out of the conversation about the changing media landscape, but they could just be the industry’s saving grace. Regional papers are both profitable and a real part of the community. The lack of fast and cheap internet over the years has made it almost impossible for news on the web to penetrate regional Australia as much as it has in the USA and Britain.  One glance at the amount of people who line up to use the net at the local library shows that local residents have limited access to the internet. And the NBN with all its offerings is still years away for some remote areas, and doesn’t address the affordability issues that are more prevalent in country areas. Even so, the internet is the friend of country papers, not the alternative, and not the sole future. Regional papers have a big advantage. They are generally the only papers in their town or city and they have the local real estate and jobs market sewn up. As newspapers, they are also successful because they listen to, and are a big part of, their community.  They know what is important to their readers and they give them what they want. Metropolitan papers have, it seems, tried to either mirror the web or ignore it. That denies readers something the web can’t give – detail and analysis of uber local issues. Former Bendigo Bank managing director and Community Bank architect

Bendigo builds a better future

N behalf of the City of Greater Bendigo it

L CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA gives me great pleasure to welcome every-


one to Bendigo for the annual Victorian Country

Press Association conference. BENDIGO 2013 VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE The City of Greater Bendigo welcomes and



encourages organisations to hold conferences and events in our region not only because of CE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA the obvious economic benefits for our local VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE economy but also because it gives us a chance to showcase our city and its many wonderful L CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE facilities and attractions to delegates and their CE 2013 • VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA partners. Bendigo has played a significant role in the VCPA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2013 • VCPA history of Australia – both as one of the country’s largest, richest and important goldfields and now as one of Victoria’s largest regional cities. While Bendigo owes much of its bright and prosperous future to the legacies provided by its rich golden past it has gone on to become one of Australia’s most progressive and beautiful cities. We believe our future lies in having a strong and diverse economy here in our own region – a place where skilled employees can live and work. In Greater Bendigo we are currently undertaking a range of major works programs to deliver new and exciting facilities for both our residents and our visitors. We are nearing completion of an $8.4 million expansion of Bendigo Art Gallery so it can continue to be the best regional art gallery in Australia. We are also well advanced with a major $8 million project to redevelop our Bendigo Library, which is the most used community facility in Greater Bendigo. We have also commenced construction of a new $25.8 million community theatre at the old Bendigo gaol site, an exciting project which will see the reuse of one of our most historic buildings as a fantastic community facility. All of these council projects are in addition to the construction of the new $630 million Bendigo Mayor Cr Barry Lyons Bendigo Hospital by the state government.

The hospital project is very important not only for Greater Bendigo, but also for all of the smaller towns and communities that surround our part of Victoria. In Greater Bendigo we are in the rather unique position of having a full range of media outlets including daily and weekly newspapers, television and commercial, public and community radio stations. The City of Greater Bendigo acknowledges the important role that our local media plays in keeping our community informed. Our local newspapers in particular provide our region’s people with a means to communicate their aspirations, gripes and hopes and dreams for the community. Our local newspapers fight for Greater Bendigo, they fight for the underdog and they fight for a better community. As with all media, our newspapers tell the news of the day, the important stories and the stories that affect our lives. They tell us human interest stories, stories about the arts, about sport, about our heritage and about our culture – in fact our newspapers tell us about ourselves and are an important record of our local history. Our newspapers are also a major voice for council and other organisations in dissecting information about decisions that are made that influence our lives. And even in the digital age newspapers still remain relevant and just as important as ever. I would also like to thank the Bendigo Weekly for attracting and hosting this year’s conference. The Bendigo Weekly is a proud Bendigonian and an excellent corporate citizen that does an excellent job in providing a quality free newspaper to the residents of Bendigo each week. -Cr Barry Lyons Mayor of Bendigo

LIFE â&#x20AC;˘ 27


Local food industry insider with Marika McMahon

BUZZ: Finn Vedelsby and Ben Massey.

Look forward to a Christmas treat HEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S a buzz about town at the moment regarding the impending opening of Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest restaurant Rocks on Rosalind which will be open well before Christmas. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lucky enough to have a sneak peak at the spectacular restaurant located on View Street, overlooking Rosalind Park. Owners chef Ben Massey and front of house man Finn Vedelsby are busy putting the finishing touches together, hoping to open in late November. Finn is well known to many Bendigonians from his time at Bazzani but he and Ben have worked together in many great restaurants throughout Australia and are now fulfilling a long held dream to open a restaurant together in Bendigo. Catching up with the boys last week, their passion for this


venture is huge. They love the Bendigo food scene and see Rocks as something to supplement the great venues already here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; offering locals and visitors another option. Rocks will be open seven days a week for beautiful dining, all-day grazing at the bar and drinks in the courtyard with sensational views of Rosalind Park. There are some pretty special items on the menu, too. One of Benâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature dishes is a Royal Thai Curry which can involve up to 24 spices. The dish I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to try is the Szechuan crusted half duck served with a chilli caramel sauce â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I managed to get a taste of the sauce which was an explosion of spicy, sticky, sweet, yumminess. One of the biggest hits is likely to be the dessert menu at Rocks called Rock Your Sweet

Tooth. It consists of 15 different dessert options that you can order individually or a tiered selection of up to 12 items to share. Imagine a gaggle of girlfriends gossiping over a tiered plate that includes delights such as tia maria pate, Aztec chocolate pot and fig and walnut pudding. Ben is quite the expert on souffles as well and they may appear on the menu at a later stage. Finn and Ben are keen to see Rocks as a place you will feel comfortable to attend for all types of eating. Whether it be a quick curry at the bar, a big night out in the dining area or a dessert tapas selection after a show at The Capital. Lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like Rocks will be well worth many a visit in the future.

Culinary questions with Jody and Brent Loam of the Willow Room Restaurant in Heathcote


OOD related questions answered. Send your questions to foodfossickers@ Q. What is the best brine for pickled vegetables? A. A great all purpose brine for pickling most vegetables is to use one part vinegar, one part sugar and one part water. Bring this to the boil with a pinch of salt and pour over your raw, prepped vegetable. Any type of vinegar can be used but try to use a vinegar that will complement the vegetable been pickled. Example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For fennel use a white balsamic, for beetroot use a Merlot vinegar. I tend not to add spices that may overpower the vegetable.

Q. What is the best way to cook Kale? A. For cooking kale or any

other robust leaf vegetable like cavelo nero or chard, it is best to blanch the leaves quickly in boiling salted water first. This helps to break down the leaf and start the cooking process. Once blanched and drained, kale can either be used straight away sautĂŠed in butter and garlic or it is fantastic chopped and put through a hearty soup or stew.

Q. What are Rillettes? A. Rillette is a classic French

dish usually made of cooked and shredded pork or duck

JODIE AND BRENT LOAM meat that is mixed with its own fat or lard. It can be made with fish also, mainly salmon. It would most often be served as part of a charcuterie dish which would be selection of cured meats, terrines and pates.

New technology nails onychomycosis N

OTHING hints at summer more than fashionable open footwear. And now thanks to Tammy Davis Podiatry you too may be able to enjoy this simple summer experience that many take for granted. Especially if your feet are affected by the fungal nail disease – onychomycosis. “Fungi that feed on keratin, a structural protein within your nails, often cause this condition,” Tammy said. “Onychomycosis is contagious and painful, often resulting in a negative selfimage.” The disease is characterised by a change in nail colour, thickening and distortion of the nail, debris under the nail and often a foul odour. “It is often ignored and causes embarrassment and frustration, as treatments to date have been dangerous and ineffective.”


LOOKING GOOD: Thanks to Tammy Davis Podiatry. Photo: GARRY PATERSON

Until recently treatment involved anti fungal medication, exhaustive topical treatments and even surgery to remove the toe nail. However Tammy Davis Podiatry’s new Fox 1064 Diode Laser treatment is clinically proven to kill the fungus that causes thickened, discoloured, flaking toenails. The laser treatment destroys the spores, inhibiting growth and multiplication. The laser passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or adjacent skin. Along with its antifungal properties, the laser is also an effective bactericidal tool, destroying pathogenic microorganisms and stimulating the reparative process. So to have your feet looking and feeling their best phone Tammy Davis Podiatry at 128 Condon Street, Bendigo, on 5443 9211 for an initial consultation.

Fungal Nail Disease causes nails to become discoloured, thickened and brittle. This disease, medically referred to as Onychomycosis affects 2% – 14% of the adult population. Fungal nail disease may result in pain, impair the ability to walk and can contribute to negative self esteem.

In an entertaining and informative session find out how taking small steps (now while you’re approaching retirement) can make all the difference later on.

Be informed about your future A

USTRALIAN women on average retire with 40 per cent less superannuation than men, according to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia. With the current rate of employer SG contributions at just 9.25 per cent and with women’s super-balances more likely to be impacted by career breaks, part-time work and lower wages resulting in a significant smaller balance. In response to this alarming statistic, VicSuper has developed the Super Woman Money Program to

better equip women with practical strategies to manage their finances and plan for the future. The program consists of

seminar already. In fact, since the very first Super Woman Money seminar in March last year, four and a half thousand

Thousands of women in Melbourne have attended this seminar already a series of financial articles and seminars put together by female financial experts and tailored to women and their needs. Thousands of women in Melbourne have attended this

women have benefited. “The venue was ideal and the host and presenter were both knowledgeable and informative,” one of the attendees said. “I now feel confident and motivated

to help make informed decisions about my own financial security.” Well, now you too can be more knowledgeable about your own superannuation and retirement with a Super for every Super Woman seminar in Bendigo, next Thursday, November 21. This seminar will provide information on superannuation basics and small steps you can take now that will make all the difference in retirement.

EMORIALS are stepping stones to the past, linking generations to the future The word, memorial, derives from the Latin term, memory, which means mindful. We are mindful of those we love, and when they die, their memories remain with us. Memories are precious and it is appropriate to share them with future generations. Therefore memorials are a practical way of perpetuating memories and a focal point for family, friends and the community. Memorials may be as modest or extravagant as you feel the deceased may have wished for. They pay respect to the departed but in reality they are for the living, contributing positively to the grieving process, while providing a sense of place, leaving a record of a life lived for future generations. Without a memorial, they may be forgotten by future generations.

Cemeteries offer the opportunity to display our memories permanently for future generations while preserving our heritage. The person holding the right of interment or the executor or administrator of an estate is generally the only authority

Monumental sections allow a full monument that is usually made of stone, with the site totally enclosed with the headstone and slab. At the Kangaroo Flat Cemetery there is a section designated for headstones. Generally headstones are

There are also numerous memorial options for cremated remains with individual standard and weeping roses available or positions in one of the many rose gardens.

Cremation and Memorialisation

OPEN DAY SUNDAY NOVEMBER 17 TRANQUIL: Nature’ s beauty and RPCV pre-purchase services offer peace of mind. Photo: GARRY PATERSON

Memorials benefit those left behind


ORMER Victorian era British prime minister William Gladstone wrote: “Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure exactly the sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals.” Since the beginning of mankind, humans have demonstrated an inner impulse to memorialise. We crave recognition. A memorial satisfies that inner impulse and is an enduring recognition of a person’s existence. Memorialisation is a very important stage of the grieving process and often overlooked in the funeral process. Memorials are an important part of our history and are a wealth of information for families, genealogists, historians and the public. Memorials are for the living, not the dead. Scattering remains fails to recognise that we need a point of reference to grieve and remember, and denies future generations the opportunity to visit those that went before us. Memorial parks and churches are ideal locations where anyone can visit, at any time in peace and tranquillity. Modern memorials including bronze are varied and affordable. There are options that best suit the achievements, lifestyle, service and personality of the person remembered. When you memorialise at Memorial Parks Central Victoria, your community’s heritage will be remembered and Gladstone’s ideals upheld.



RE-PAYING at RPCV provides peace of mind for bereaved family and friends. However, putting money aside does not address the emotional issues associated with planning a funeral. Distressed family or friends often need to cope with not only the financial burden but also the emotional distress caused by the bereavement. RPCV offers the opportunity to pre-purchase a Right on Interment for a monumental or lawn site

along with a memorial for cremated remains. Also available is the pre-purchase of a cremation service. The advantage of prepurchasing a service is that you are purchasing it at current prices. RPCV offers various memorial options across their five cemeteries – Bendigo, Eaglehawk, Kangaroo Flat, White Hills and Axedale. Staff will be available at the open day this Sunday and will be able inform you of the numerous memorial options available.

EMORIAM Glass, has combined decades of development and expertise to set a new dimension for today’s memorials with an unusual medium. Glass has been used for thousands of years dating back to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt as an ideal material to help commemorate and celebrate wealth and eternity. And churches for centuries have utilised stained glass for stunning effect. Well now, you too can use glass to pay tribute to the departed with a personalised memorial courtesy of Memoriam Glass and Frank Kos. “Individual monuments risk losing their individuality when installed amidst a landscape of traditional headstones,” Frank said. “Our range of glass monuments allows for elegant combinations of symbols and text while our specialist design service provides customised commissions.” Memoriam Glass has full control over


the manufacturing and installation of your memorial as they oversee the whole process from design, manufacture and installation. Timeless yet stylish and virtually maintenance free, these sculptured mementos are steadily gaining in popularity, with Memoriam Glass having already successfully installed numerous headstones

and plaques throughout Central Victoria. Stylish glass headstones and plaques offer an alternative to the traditional granite, or bronze materials while introducing a reflective quality to rural and metropolitan cemeteries and memorial parks. Headstones and plaques are individually crafted after extensive consultation, creating a

truly personal memorial for the departed. See Memoriam Glass’ display at the Remembrance Park offices at Neangar Memorial Park, 5 Victoria Street Eaglehawk adjacent to the Bendigo Regional Crematorium. Alternatively visit Memoriam’s Glass website at or phone 9761 7727 for further information.

ABY boomers tend not to follow tradition. Since opening their business in Bendigo, Brian and Lyn Leidle of Mount Alexander Funerals say they are seeing families not using the traditional family funeral director, but selecting the funeral director of their choice. “Baby boomers employ wedding planners to organise their wedding and travel consultants for holidays. “So they look for more choices in ways to express themselves in death, and want to have participation in the way their own funeral will take place,” Brian said. With environmental issues also paramount, people could be looking for a more eco-friendly way to depart this world. That’s why Mount Alexander Funerals now supply cardboard coffins. Research indicates that more than 70 per cent of families class being ecofriendly as important, with more than 90 per cent of families recycling in some way, so it is no surprise that the demand for ecofriendly coffins is steadily growing.

“Since the launch of the enviro coffin, hundreds of cardboard coffins have been used in cremations and burials in Australia,” Brian said. Enviroboard coffins, produced by LifeArt Australia, are environmentallyfriendly coffins that meet the standards required by the funeral industry. Mount Alexander Funerals are proud to be the first funeral company in Bendigo to offer cardboard coffins. Enviroboard coffins use fibres sourced mostly from recycled cardboard, recycled paper and sugar cane waste. The exterior is then finished with a printed surface or left as a plain cardboard colour. Research has shown that cremating an alternative MDF coffin releases greenhouse gases over 200 per cent higher than recycled LifeArt cardboard coffins. So ask yourself the question, how would you like your final departure to impact on the environment and future generations? Mount Alexander Funerals, High Street, Kangaroo Flat, phone 5447 0927.

MEMORIAL PLAQUES In a time of concern for diminishing forests, carbon emissions and climate change, we at Mount Alexander Funerals now have available cardboard (enviroboard) coffins. FACTS: • Enviroboard uses some of the 1.6 million tonnes of cardboard and paper that are recycled every year in Australia. • By using recycled paper and cardboard, the enviroboard coffin reduces waste in our landfills. • Unlike particleboard coffins, enviroboard does not contain adhesives that release formaldehyde into our atmosphere. • Enviroboard coffins release less carbon emissions into the enviroment during a cremation.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, November 15, 2013

A man of progress h

AVInG in the past week written about the treasurer of the Welcome Committee for the Officers and Men of the American Fleet, it is perhaps appropriate to introduce you to the secretary, Andrew Morrison. Andrew Morrison was brought to Bendigo by his parents in 1853, when he was only two years of age. his father, David Morrison conducted what became a local institution, the “Teapot Grocery Store” in Pall Mall. Andrew Morrison, after his graduation, was an Associate of the Federal Institute of Accountants and became a well known figure on the local scene, having involved himself both socially, and professionally, in a wide range of organisations. From 1879 he was the secretary for two years of the Bendigo easter Fair, a similar position was held for the Bendigo Athletic Club, he was active in the Manchester Unity Lodge having been a past Grand Master, had also been secretary of the Bendigo Boot Company and was, at the time of his death, secretary of the Bendigo Arcade Company. Andrew Morrison’s office was at the hargreaves Street end of the Bendigo Arcade, that end was later popularly called Bennetts Arcade, as George Bennetts had taken over the whole of that area for his diverse hardware retail business. Andrew Morrison made representations on behalf of clients in the Court of Insolvency. At some stage he had been out of the colony, possibly having gone back to his birthplace in Fyfeshire, Scotland in 1875 and returned in

mid 1876. It is fair to say that at one time he was engaged in share transactions on a commercial basis, whether he was a registered broker is yet to be determined. Among Andrew Morrison’s numerous interests as secretary of the Bendigo Progress Association he also involved himself in the promotion and lobbying for additional railway lines, these were seen to be something that could be of benefit to Bendigo. As with those more financially able citizens of Bendigo, there was the desire to escape the city during the summer months, a favourite resort was to stay in one of the many hotels at Queenscliff, by the sea. Bendigo was a most uncomfortable place in summer, the hot winds would blow the fine sand from the numerous mine tailings heaps, adding considerably to the discomfort of the populace. So it was with Andrew Morrison’s wife, at the end of December 1898 she had settled into her hotel there, then Andrew received a telegram back in Bendigo to state that his wife had passed away. Immediately he journeyed by train to the resort to bring back his wife’s body for burial at the Quarry hill Cemetery. After this sad experience Morrison decided to move house from Mundy Street to the corner of hallam and Carpenter streets. Personal tragedies were not unknown to Andrew Morrison as his younger brother David Morrison was drowned at the Grassy Flat Reservoir in 1873. David was a successful merchant and had a sail boat ordered

central: the Hargreaves Street end of the Bendigo arcade. Photo: allan doney

from Melbourne, a lorry brought the boat to the Upper Grassy Flat Reservoir from the railway station. After some experimentation with various amounts of ballast in this five metre craft David Morrison was on the jib while a former sailor and miner Mr McCush was at the tiller and he had fastened the main sheet. A sudden gust of wind over-

turned the yacht, all the person in the rescue row boat could find was Morrison’s hat and gloves floating on the water. The two occupants of the boat were drowned. Andrew Morrison had a long association with the auction house of Gh hobson and Company, after the death of George hobson, Andrew became the principal of the firm.

heritage matters Backhaus has place in history T he first child to be baptised on the Bendigo goldfields was James Joseph O’Brien. James was born on May 2, 1852, most probably in a tent. he was baptised by the German missionary priest henry Backhaus on June 4 of that year. When you consider how far James’ parents were from their home, to find a priest four weeks after the birth of their child, in the middle of the mud and chaos of the goldfields, must have seemed something like a miracle to them. The story of James’ baptism is found in the five small baptism books kept by Dr Backhaus who kept the baptism records in small pocket books before transcribing them into central Catholic records. Five of six books survived and they cover the time from 1852-1856. In the report written by Megan Cardamone of heritage Victoria the books are instructive about daily life at the time, such as travel times across the country and the demands made on a bush priest. She also observes that because the books name the children baptised and their parents, they are also an important resource for family history researchers. Dr Backhaus also recorded baptisms in Kyneton, Mt Alexander and Gisborne. Donna Bailey, the archivist for the Sandhurst Diocesan historical Commission, says that the baptism books have repetition of sponsors’ names. “The name of Catherine Devine keeps re-appearing for instance. I’m not sure why this is the case. Were the Irish Catholics very clan-like or were the sponsors just regulars at church? There is so much scope for interpretation here.” Dr Bailey added that there was important potential in the archives as a whole to be realised. The Bendigo Weekly will be highlighting various aspects of the collection in the coming weeks.

I aam m super sweet and affectionate. I will win yoo over with my loyalty and gentle nature. I you ca can be frightened easily but my confidence is growing so I would be best suited to a home with older children. I prefer to play w with some boys or will do well on my own providing I can truly be a part of your family. I am desexed and Microchipped and eagerly awaiting my forever home.

Desexed Female, 2 years.

I’m a very sweet girl who loves chin rubs and getting lots of attention but can be a bit shy at first. I have an easy coat to care for. I may enjoy living with another friendly, desexed cat. I am desexed and Microchipped, waitingg for you to come and adopt me.

Spirit gears up for tough run By JOEL PETERSON

BENDIGO Spirit coach Bernie Harrower says his team must keep its head above water and keep winning games through a tough period of the draw, if it is to reach its regular season goal of a top-two finish in the WNBL. Bendigo heads to Brisbane on Sunday to play Logan, but will likely have to do so without the services of shooting guard and Australian Opal Kelly Wilson, who is still hampered by a rib injury. Harrower said this week that he expects Wilson to miss, but star centre Elyse Penaluna should return. The depth of the team was noticeable in a 16-point win over Canberra last Sunday, and assigning minutes. Although the deepest group the franchise has ever had, it creates a problem for Harrower, even if it is a good one to have. “We are very deep and it puts me under an enormous amount of pressure, because I haven’t got one player that doesn’t deserve court time, but trying to find them that

time is the difficult thing,” he said. “I feel for those kids that are sitting a lot, but they have to make the most of their opportunities when they come around. They have to give me reasons to get them more minutes, as opposed to taking them off the court.

There really isn’t one of them that doesn’t deserve to play “It’s never been as big a problem as this year, and I’ve never had to juggle it this much. They’re all great kids, really good people, and there really isn’t one of them that doesn’t deserve to play.” Harrower spoke to the team after Sunday’s win about following the lead of

star import Kelsey Griffin, who amassed a franchiserecord 20 rebounds in the game, and showed incredible energy throughout the game. “After she came back from the WNBA she’s been a bit flat but her second half against Dandenong was exceptional and I thought all day on Sunday she was just unbelievable,” Harrower said. “I spoke to the group about matching that effort and intensity, which we haven’t done yet, and need to do if we are going to be great.” Bendigo now faces a tough run up until Christmas, including its next three games on the road, and Harrower says maintaining momentum is crucial. “We’ve got a tough run right up until Christmas, and we need to keep winning games and keep our head above water and keep the wolves at the door so to speak,” he said. “Our aim is for a toptwo finish, but there’s a lot of work to do and a lot of water to go under the bridge before that.”

Emu Valley Cricket Association – Division One

Rams butted into a tough spot by Marong SEDGWICK got off to a rough start at its new home ground in round four of the Emu Valley Cricket Association last Saturday, as Marong posted 296 at Club Court. In the Rams’ Division One side’s first game on its new deck, Jeremy Ross dominated again with the bat for the Panthers, making 86 while new recruit Michael Liverton contributed 78. The best of the bowlers for Sedgwick was Craig Lock with 3/35 from 13 economical overs, but the Rams will need a mighty effort with the bat if they are to claim victory over Marong. Half centuries to Travis Nolan and the in-form Ash Dixon steered Axe Creek to 184 against Golden Gully but the star of the day was the Cobras’ Cameron Moore. The opening bowler ripped through the Cowboys’ top order on his way to figures of 6/27 from 19 overs.

Moore has 18 wickets this season for Golden Gully, who are in a solid position to claim their second win of the season heading into day two In the top-of-the-table clash at Ken Wust Oval between Emu Creek and West Bendigo it was left to Simon Marwood (66) and Darren Chamberlain (39) to lead the way as Emu Creek struggled with the bat to post 169. Trent Bysouth and skipper Dion Prange both claimed three wickets apiece for Wests. The match hangs in the balance after the reigning premiers struck back late in the day to have the Redbacks 3/65 at stumps as Boe Bish (5) and Matt Dwyer (42) resume the run chase this week. Phil Berry’s 101 was the mainstay of the Mandurang innings as the Rangas posted 260 against Spring Gully. Damien Dunlop was again the

best of the bowlers for Gully with four wickets, but with Berry receiving good support from Cain Ladiges (58) and Matt Giri (42) Mandurang are in the box seat heading into day two. At Ewing Park, Alex Collins (5/55) made sure this wasn’t the

week the Maiden Gully top order fired as the Tigers restricted them to 155. Only opener Rob Brown (34) and number 10 Ben Ross (44) showed any real resistance, as Maiden Gully’s slow start continued.

United could not seize an opportunity to take control of the match as Brett Haw (2/37) and Glenn McCoombe (1/22) had the tigers at 3/73 at stumps, with Andrew Gaul and Alex Collins at the crease. - Joel Peterson

Aussie puts the past behind BENDIGo Gold coach aussie Jones says the club is ready to put the distractions of a tumultuous off-season behind them, as the club embarked upon preseason training this week. The club had strong numbers on the training track, including recent signee Tyson Biffin, when the Gold resumed training on Tuesday. Jones says the return to action was welcomed by players and coaches alike, after almost two months out of the usual routine. “I think most of the players and coaches are glad to be back getting into the swing of things, and the feeling was really good on Tuesday night among the group,” he said. “We had strong numbers on the track, and although some of our Melbourne-based guys couldn’t make the session, to have the numbers we had and for the boys to want to get back into it was great.” a number of players are trying their luck to land a spot on the Gold’s list, hoping to impress the coaching panel throughout the pre-season. Jones says it is beneficial for both the club and players, and they welcome those looking

to benefit from the increased training. “If they show us they are

The feeling was really good on Tuesday night among the group capable of being competitive at this level then we’d look at getting them on our list, but even if they don’t they go back to their clubs in peak fitness,” Jones said. “We had a number of guys who trained with us but didn’t make our list last year go back to their clubs and play careerbest footy, so there’s benefits either way. “Guys can learn a lot just in the habits and commitment required at this level of competition.

READY: Aussie Jones is pleased to be back in the season. “It’s not all about fitness, I’m a big believer in that you need footballs and skill work involved throughout pre-season, and you get that movement-specific fitness as well. “It’s been a long off-season but I’m certainly glad to be back into it, and making sure we can keep improving going into next season.” – Joel Peterson
