FAST food giant McDonald’s is setting up another store in Bendigo. The McDonald’s brothers opened their first restaurant in California in the 1950s, and the company has lodged plans to build a new restaurant in California Gully. The fast food giant is planning to

set up a $1 million, 24 hour, sevenday-a-week shop on Eaglehawk Road, next to Fitzpatrick’s Home Hardware. The building, on land once occupied by the Stafford Ellinson factory, will be 110 square metres and include a McCafe. The restaurant will accommodate 107 patrons with 32 carparks.

More than 10 additional car parks can be added in stage two if needed. The entire 3182m2 site will also house a drive through, two waiting bay carparks and six bicycle spaces. At least 90 full and part-time jobs will also be created. The artist impression design swaps McDonalds’ traditional col-

ours for a streamline black, red and white facade on the north-west side of the property. “The proposed Convenience Restaurant use and development is generally considered to contribute to the local prosperity and economic wellbeing of the site’s locality and the Greater Bendigo municipality,” the

planning report stated. Council also requires surface and storm water detention to be provided to ensure the local drainage system is not flooded. The environment overlay blankets the site while the opposite side of the road is protected with a Heritage Overlay. The site is opposite the main California Gully shops, including the Whitehorse Hotel and Eliades fish and chip shop.

We wish our readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We will be back on January 3, 2014

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, December 20, 2013

Make over to help out BENDIGO women are banding together once more, to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Bendigo’s Biggest Ever High Tea will be held early next year, with organisers hoping to have 200 women come together for a glass of bubbles and a cucumber sandwich. The event aims to raise awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer and much-needed research funds. Every 10 hours, a woman in Australia will die of ovarian cancer. The local group raised more than $23,000 last year hosting the Girls Biggest Ever Make Over. Feedback from the night was overwhelmingly supportive, organisers declaring it a success. “However, we could only ever have limited numbers in attendance so we have adopted the idea of the Blokes Biggest Ever Lunch and taken it a bit up market,” organiser Karen Sutherland said. “This way we can grow the number of guests, still enjoy the champagne, good food, shopping and networking which women love to do and continue to get the message out there. “A night like this can’t be a success without the great support of our organising committee and especially the local businesses who time and time again support the many charities and fundraisers that the Bendigo community gets involved in.” One in 70 women develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime, 1400 will be Australian women. Only 20 per cent of Australian women will survive more than five years, compared to an 80 per cent survival rate for breast cancer sufferers. Locals wishing to sponsor the event or donate any goods or services, contact Mrs Sutherland on 0411 142 868 or Keith Sutherland on 0418 509 430. Tickets are $100 each and include drinks, high tea, lucky door prizes and guest speakers. An auction will be held on the night as well as shopping from some of Bendigo’s best retailers. For tickets, call Julie at the Bendigo Weekly on 5440 2500.

Council futures director calls hospital redevelopment a vote of confidence for Bendigo

St John of God expands BENDIGO’S St John of God Hospital has unveiled plans for a $50 million redevelopment. The project will be built in two stages and will deliver 72 more beds and two extra operating theatres. Stage one will be one extra operating theatre and 46 new beds, increasing bed capacity by almost 50 per cent. It will be complemented by a redeveloped front entrance, including lift access from Lily Street, and refurbishment of the rest of the hospital. Building work will begin in 2014 once the plans have Greater Bendigo council approval. Stage two will cost $9.3 million and will include the second additional theatre and another 28 beds. Work on that will start as demand is needed. Hospital chief executive officer Darren Rogers said the re-

development was a significant investment which would meet Bendigo’s growing health care needs as the region continues to expand. “We have experienced increased demand for services in recent years,” he said. “This investment will offer more choice in health care op-

“The redevelopment is a great vote of confidence in Bendigo, which continues to take centre stage in regional Australia for unprecedented investment in infrastructure, and strong economic and residential growth,” he said. “The community of Bendigo and indeed the wider region strongly welcome St John of God

ALL PLANNED: An impression of the refurbishment.

This investment will offer more choice in health care options close to home for the Bendigo community tions close to home for the Bendigo community and will complement Bendigo Health’s new public hospital by attracting more medical specialists, resulting in fewer patients needing to travel to Melbourne for specialist care.” Council City Futures director Stan Liacos said the announcement marked a proud moment in Bendigo’s history.

Health Care’s decision to invest so substantially in helping meet our health care needs.” Mr Rogers said works will be staged to ensure no services will be closed during construction. A new inpatient wing will be built first, to the east of the current hospital, extending half way across Lily Street. When the new wing is com-

pleted by early 2016, work will start on the operating theatre suite. This will include reconfiguring the theatre layout to improve patient flow, refurbishing the existing theatres and adding an additional theatre and more recovery beds.

Building pushes pedal power

The major change patients and visitors will see next year is a new three-storey wing built over Lily Street. Patients and visitors will still be able to drive up Lily Street, and then enter the hospital via a lift from that level, as well as the current access from Chum Street.

Final red tape cut for hospital build EXCLUSIVE

BIKE SITE: An artist’s impression of the new building in the CBD.


A NEW four-storey office and residential building in Bendigo’s CBD will focus on bikes as a way of transport. Plans have been lodged for the $1.8 million building at 200 Hargreaves Street, next to Headspace. The building includes ground-

floor commercial space, with three levels of apartments above. The first two levels will each feature two one-bedroom apartments, with the top level housing a large three-bedroom unit. The contemporary building has balcony access to each level, and is almost three metres higher than the neighbouring buildings. While acknowledging a shortage of carparks, the plan suggests that is

not a bad thing. “The need of inner city apartments becomes important to minimise this trend and encourage more pedestrian and bicycle travel,” the application said. To accommodate this, the site will have seven bike spaces. There will be three for residents and two for visitors to the apartments. There will be one for an employee and one for a visitor to the ground-floor business.

EVEN though it is well and truly underway, the final legal hurdle to the construction of the $1 billion New Bendigo Hospital has been jumped. State Parliament has passed the Parks and Crown Land Legislation Amendment Bill 2013, removing the two main sites from surprisingly restrictive use zones. The bill removed the restrictive Crown Grant from the Anne Caudle Campus site, which was made in 1860 and restricted the use of the land for the purposes of a “benevolent asylum”. It also removed the permanent reservation from the Lucan Street site, which restricted the use of the land to “hospital purposes” only. The latter restriction paves the way for the new motel, childcare centre and supermarket planned for the site.

Health Minister David Davis said the bill also reappoints Bendigo Health Care Group as the committee of management and trustee of that land. “The Victorian Coalition Government knows how important this project is for Bendigo and the region,” he said. “This legislation will help Exemplar Health get on with building the most significant health project in regional Victoria’s history.” “Last week, I was very proud to pour the first concrete for the footings of the new hospital. “Today marks another significant step for delivering a new hospital for Bendigo with the latest technology, world-class facilities and capacity to meet the future health care needs of the Bendigo region.” Mr Davis said the Stete Government was ensuring Victorian hospitals had the key infrastructure in place to deliver high quality health care into the 21st century.

news on the street


A NEWS stand on Lyttleton Terrace is making headlines. The proposed three-metreby-three-metre shop will sit on the corner of Lyttleton Terrace and Mundy Street, in front of the Old Green Bean. Although not a new concept, the demountable shop is a first for Bendigo. Property owner and architect Peter O’Reilly said his vision for the shop was to invite “more street interaction” to the area. “Flower shops and newspaper stands give street interaction,” the former Bendigonian said. “I thought it would be great to encourage interaction in the area and encourage an area that hasn’t been developed previously. “It needs to be regenerated and encourage pedestrian traffic.” The glass and steel newspaper stand concept has been adapted from its Melbourne cousins to address heritage concerns. Mr O’Reilly said council had been supportive of his $35,000 vision. “There are no more traditional milk bars in the area and the nearest ‘news-stand’ is right back in the city. This is a catalyst for other things to happen.

It encourages life back into the street rather than [keeping it] subdued,” he said. “I think this will be pretty well supported.” The plans are out for community comment and are yet to pass council. Council Planning and Development director Prue Mansfield said the development would need to be considered on its merits. “Generally we are very sup-

portive of things that build life in the area,” she said. “The ideas are pretty exciting. Whether it works in that area is still to be considered [but]... there is nothing to say it can’t work.

“There are similar buildings in Melbourne. It is a really important corner and building.” Ms Mansfield said the property owner had worked through council’s original concerns to arrive at the second redesign.

The shop size was reduced from 5.1 metres to three metres to retain the building’s heritage features. The one-manned newsstand would be separately run to the other businesses on the block. Mr O’Reilly said the shop would be a trial for more installations across the city. “It’s probably an extension of the normal CBD in Bendigo with the new development of the library and city offices, there will be more pedestrian traffic in the streets,” he said. “This is a trial of things to come in the area.”

Police tackle lawbreakers POLICE have been out in force this week, catching antisocial behaviour, speeding drivers and opportunistic criminals. Five people were arrested in Bendigo last weekend as Operation Unite took control. One person was charged for assault and police issued 45 penalty notices. The Australasian operation targeted drunken and anti-social behaviour with Bendigo police attending 54 licensed venues. Police pursued a driver on Energetic Street in Long Gully on Monday night. Bendigo police were conducting a routine intercept when the driver failed to stop. The driver was pursued for about one minute at 8pm and was charged after the incident. A man has allegedly conducted an armedrobbery at the Williamson Street General Store on Tuesday. The male entered the 24 hour store about 3.15am and is believed to have fled with money. Police also caught 17 people speeding on Tuesday. Two cars clocked about 25 kilometres an hour over the speed limit. A Golden Square man, aged 25, was caught at 135 km/h on the Calder Freeway near Sunbury. A 29 year old Taiwanese man was caught travelling at 133km/h in a 100km/h zone in Bridgewater North. Both men received a month’s licence suspension and fines. Bendigo police senior sergeant Paul Gardiner said it was important for drivers to take care on the roads. “Stay alert and stay within the speed limit. Stay awake, stay sober and stay alive,” he said. Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000.

Feast for Christmas A TASTY feast has been provided for the Bendigo Stadium Community Christmas Lunch. Ten IGA supermarkets across Bendigo have banded together to provide all the food costed at $3000. Lunch-goers will enjoy ham, turkey, chicken, potatoes, pumpkin, mixed vegetables, tea and coffee. More than 300 recyclable shopping bags have also been provided to allow each guest to take home a Bendigo Foodshare Christmas hamper. Long Gully IGA manager Trevor Morison said the supermarkets’ joint decision to donate the food came easily. “All the IGA supermarket owners agreed this was an opportunity

to do some good and provide for those people who don’t always get to have a merry Christmas,” he said. “The food we’re providing is of the highest quality and guests will be able to have a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings.” Bendigo Myer will also join the party, providing the Christmas decorations for the event. Myer store manager Michael Watson toured the stadium with one of their interior designers to best spread the cheer. Guests who wish to attend the event should call Mary White on 5434 6168. People wishing to volunteer at the event should call the Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre on 5441 1404.

Bendigostudents showtheirclass By JOEL PETERSON

Bendigo Senior Secondary College recorded the city’s top VCe achievers, with gabrielle Jack and eli ivey returning almost perfect ATAR scores of 99.5. With results released on Monday, the 18-year-old duo topped the town, with all three schools in Bendigo again recording a host of high scores. Ms Jack achieved a 50 in english, 48 in Psychology and 41 or above in indonesian, while Mr ivey’s top scores were 48 in biology and 47 in german. With most students fighting off nerves before results are announced, Ms Jack managed a sleepin on the big day. “i haven’t thought about it much until today, i slept in and didn’t go for the seven o’clock wake up and tried to be pretty casual about it,” she said. “i just tried to put it behind me, after the exams it was all done so i just tried to relax. My family were happy with it, and i definitely am too.” Ms Jack is intending to keep her talents in her home town and complete a double degree in Law and Arts at La Trobe University Bendigo. Mr ivey, planning to study Biomedicine, returned home from a family holiday to Bali on Monday morning to the news of his score. “i just wanted to relax and put it behind me on the holiday. There was nothing i could do to change the outcome, all i could do was to just wait until it came out,” he said. “i was still at the airport. We had just got off the plane and i had phone service and the text came through. “it was definitely surprising, in a good way. i never thought i’d get anywhere near 99.5.” Liam Byrne achieved two perfect scores in further Maths and Business Management, Krista Lyle scored a 50 in studio arts and Ra-

Councillors bid to rid Tom Thumb island of birds

Dogs add bite to island problem By CHRISTINE McGINN

DOGS are set to be unleashed on Lake Tom Thumbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s island to quell the protected bird infestation. An independent report suggested releasing dogs around the island for four to five hours most days to scare the birds. The Bendigo Weekly revealed earlier this year that local residents were fed-up with the protected bird infestation. Greater Bendigo councillors adopted a plan, at Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council meeting, to rid the lake of the ibis and silver gulls. Wildlife management consultant and silver gull expert Ian Temby was commissioned to write a management report for the site. Council adopted Mr Tembyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s measures to move the birds after

their breeding season ends, find an alternative breeding site and reduce their access to landfill scraps. Cr Peter Cox said the infestation needed a creative solution to remedy the man-made issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a bad situation for the lo-

cals, walkers and birds themselves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The island is being denuded, smells and has dead birds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a man-made problem because of the Eaglehawk landfill. The birds are opportunistic and want to grab a meal. They are feeding off the greens in the landfill.â&#x20AC;? Similar options were consid-

are so noisy. They go all day and night,â&#x20AC;? she said. Council also approved monthly updates to be posted at the lake to keep residents informed and to put the report online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have to be patient but it is a sensitive issue. We have to be practical but better sooner than later,â&#x20AC;? Cr Cox said.

MERCY Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged has unveiled the final stage of its multi-million dollar Bendigo redevelopment. The section, which is part of a $23 million upgrade, will include a new entrance, administration area, coffee shop, chapel and hairdresser at the Bendigo home. Bishop of Sandhurst Les Tomlinson blessed the building at the opening on Tuesday. Mercy Health development manager Roman Lemke said previous stages, completed during the past three years, had included a new 120-bed residential aged care building and demolition of unused buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The latest stage will benefit residents, families and visitors who will be enjoying these new areas for years to come,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Lemke said the new section would include an additional 60 bedrooms at ground floor level, which had been arranged around the two central landscaped courtyards. A new main entry has also been created to accommodate for reception, administration, cafĂŠ, lifestyle and chapel facilities, which connects at first-floor level.

CHRISTMAS is a traditional time for giving and gathering with family and friends, but not all families believe in the birth of Jesus Christ. The Bendigo Weekly spoke with families who respect the Christian calendar date but swap presents for reflection. Although a Christian faith, the Plymouth Brethren church does not celebrate Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; birth, an occasion unwritten in the Bible. Jeremy Napier said the birth of Jesus was a joyous occasion but his religion did not celebrate the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are Christians but we go by the scripture. Christianity is our way of life, bringing enjoyment and satisfaction,â&#x20AC;? the Kangaroo Flat father said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ at the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supper every Sunday. The scripture doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell us to celebrate his birth.â&#x20AC;? But Mr Napier will enjoy the day off with his wife and four children sharing a meal together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a free day where you can get together with family and other family groups. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about being together,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to get together with

everyone but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hand out presents.â&#x20AC;? Buddhism is a religion of enlightenment through exploration and discovery. Buddhist Ian Green said his faith recognised Jesus as a great â&#x20AC;&#x153;spiritual leaderâ&#x20AC;? but did not celebrate his birth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are happy to join the celebrations for Christmas. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend service but we recognise it is a spiritual time for Christians, a time for families to get together and the importance of it in Australian culture,â&#x20AC;? the father of one said. Mr Green said they would mark the occasion, sharing a big lunch with family even erecting a tree in their home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be no turkey or ham, we are vegetarians, but we have some favourites at Christmas time. A nice mushroom pate my wife cooks and vegetarian lasagna,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Green said they would give small gifts to each other to participate in the Australian festive season tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally it is a time of the year families gather together,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Green said the days after Christmas are an important period for reflection on peace and compassion.

Photos: ANDREW PERRYMAN â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Atisha Centre hosts a retreat, it is a good time to settle down and think about the time ahead,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a routine for a lot of people.â&#x20AC;? Even Hindu Bidhu Mohapatra has a small white tree to celebrate the festive season. Hinduism is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third largest faith, practising tolerance and peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On December 25 we are having a gathering. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much family here so we will meet

with friends, too,â&#x20AC;? Dr Mohapatra said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very much involved in the Christmas celebrations for the month, giving gifts to the kids and we have a Christmas tree in our home. Santa is even hiding inside and outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children have been so keen to look at the Christmas lights so on the weekend we will make a special trip.â&#x20AC;? Dr Mohapatra said his daughters, aged 12 and four, had given and received gifts with their friends.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are Hindu but we are totally open to all types of religions,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Mohapatra family decided to stay in Bendigo to celebrate Christmas this year rather than take the annual holiday to India. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is so much involvement in the Christmas celebrations,â&#x20AC;? Dr Mohapatra said. The Sacred Heart Cathedral is also embracing nationalities, hosting several different nativity scenes to represent the community.

Carollers add some spirit â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea was to bring some joy and Christmas cheer to people that are unable to go to local events or carols in the park,â&#x20AC;? group coordinator Ian Furze said â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response from the residents and staff where we have performed has been exceptional.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;?I spoke to a couple of friends and they spoke to a few more directly and through our Facebook page and within a week, we had 14 volunteers including musiciansâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Furze said the generosity and willingness of everyone involved was brilliant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had so much fun,â&#x20AC;? he said.



A group of local performers and singers was formed to bring the spirit of Christmas to the elderly. They have been performing at nursing homes and aged care facilities all around Bendigo, throughout December. The group, simply called the Bendigo Carollers came together only a few weeks ago and have already performed at several venues. With a mixture of traditional, modern and Australian Christmas songs, blended with light humour, the hour-long performance proved to be popular with audiences.

GREATER Bendigo council has halted a local family’s wish to demolish a delapidated White Hills home. Councillors voted to recommend to a State Goverment panel to place a permanent Heritage Overlay on the 384 Napier Street property. Five families inherited the 4015 square metre property after the death of the owner, Alfred Chandler, in 2008. The owners made a heartfelt plea to council to let them demolish the home, which has been spared no love. “The ongoing stress related to the maintenance, financial outgoings and council/ heritage involvement on the unused/uninhabitable property, has caused an irreparable rift within the families,” a letter to councillors stated. “The property has been ravaged by vandals extensively overtime and evidence of the internal structures being frequented by drug users. “It is of great concern to us, that the property may become a fatal death trap.

“...the current council offices/gardens, sit on the original site of the Sandhurst Hotel... also owned by our family.” The home has been in the family for 117 years, and delays in approving the family’s wishes to subdivide the property, have seen the house fall into disrepair. Yet council’s heritage staff said the house was salvageable, noting the significance. Bendigo’s National Trust president Gary Hill said the amendment was about placing a heritage overlay on the area, not about the house. “The overlay is the recognition of the house not the demolition,” he said. “If an overlay was placed on the property it would not stop subdivision on the site.” Councillor Rod Campbell said the amendment would allow a panel to consider the site’s future. “This exercise is about getting a heritage overlay, heritage control on the building so we can take planning initiatives logically thereafter, what ever they might be,” he said at

Wednesday’s meeting. “We are talking about a change to the planning scheme so council can have some controls about recognising its heritage significance.” Cr Cox agreed that Bendigo’s heritage was its ”noted difference”, hoping for a “winwin” situation. “We are not saying either demolish or not demolish this house what we are saying is we agreed to a process, let’s see it through to finish,” he said. Cr Chapman said although Bendigo is known for its heritage, “we can’t save every single building”. “This is a prime piece of real estate... there is not one heritage house in the immediate vicinity. Council has knocked down much more important heritage to just build our own site,” she said. “We are talking about an old, dilapidated building.” Despite the bid, council staunchly approved the heritage overlay recommendation.

Pity the poor birds I am writing to express my concerns that a small group of residents are agitating to exterminate inconvenient bird life at Lake Tom Thumb in Eaglehawk, apparently with the backing of councillor Peter Cox. I think the other point of view needs an airing. There is a group of about 100 birds, mostly ibis and seagulls with a few cormorants, that have made their homes during breeding season on Lake Tom Thumb. The numbers have fluctuated over the year, with a peak at breeding season that is already falling away. The complaints? “Infestation” – hardly an issue; they are not nesting or roosting on the banks or in the complainants’ front gardens; “Dead birds” – there is something called natural rate of attrition. Sadly, there is no neat and tidy undertakers’ service for bird life, usually foxes take care of the residue; “Noise”– sure, seagulls and ibis make noise, which boils down to a constant background sound, to which by its constant nature, it is easy to acclimatise. The corellas and galahs make far more noise at dusk on Lake Neangar, but mysteriously, no-one is complaining about them. I guess they are more acceptable than seagulls; “Smell” – have you smelt the dead carp that fishermen leave strewn over the banks there? The dog droppings that inconsiderate locals leave behind? The rank smell from the mud flats at the Butts Road end of the lake? The birds on the island contribute in no way to the normal smells of a human-infested lake in a suburban area. This would appear to be a non-issue. However, this small group have managed to push it to the point of getting the council to spend ratepayers’ money on a detailed expert’s report, and vote to

seek a resolution on what action to take. I suspect the real issue at hand is property value; the complainants want to ensure they get a good price for their properties when they move on to retirement in the near future. Personally, I hope that decision is to do nothing and leave nature to take its course. Clearly the wildlife needs someone to take up their case. I am not alone in my enjoyment of the area as a nature reserve, and I do not want it changed to a grumpy residents’ preserve. Angie Walker, Eaglehawk

Peter Wiseman not so wise FoRTuNaTELy for Bendigo the catastrophe and disaster that would have seen Greg Bickley voted in as Bendigo’s elected representative was averted. Even more concerning would have been if Peter Wiseman had succeeded in his pre-selection contest to become the nominated Liberal candidate. The non-entity that did become the Liberal candidate certainly was an over-rated candidate. The overt publicity campaign of the Liberal candidate was really to conceal the lack of content and depth of the candidate. Peter Wiseman’s continual denial of climate change, just reveals the superficial level of his argument to the point of unwittingly satirising himself. maybe, if mr Wiseman increased his research to include the book the “merchants of Doubt”, he may become more and even better informed. Scott Ramsay, Strathdale

Don’t count sheep WHaT is it with our councillors that they have so much time to worry about medium density housing, but not ways of keeping our rates down? Cr Rod Fyffe thinks we should develop vacant

land next to the railway track into medium density housing. Good one. The poor souls that would be attracted to live next to the railway line can count railway carriages on goods trains instead of sheep to go to sleep, and those who are artistically inclined, don’t even have to leave their backyard to enhance the appearance of trains. Cr Fyffe seems to be confused about his calling. His vision needs to be put on the back burner for another 10 years, and he needs to concentrate more about realities rather than visions. Here is a reality. our rates are out of control. The current council is no better than the previous one when it comes to managing finances, and those of us, who complain, are labelled the “carping minority “. Karl Helper, Flora Hill

Steering the agenda “LET me be crystal clear: I have no intention of introducing or supporting legislation which would reduce a woman’s ability to chose” - Denis Napthine, Victorian Premier, December 3rd, 2013. Premier Napthine can be certain that the 80 per cent of Victorians who genuinely believe that women should be able to control their own reproductive health and destiny will be watching closely for any moves he may make to appease controversial balance of power mP Geoff Shaw for the sake of venal political expediency, at the expense of the basic human right of Victorian women to access legal and safe comprehensive medical treatment. one rogue mP can not be permitted to drive Victoria’s legislative agenda on the basis of narrow personal religious belief.

this bendigo life Car wars unpacked By former councillor BRUCE PHILLIPS

I uNDERSTaND the ideas, thrust and aspirations produced from the Integrated Transport and Land use Strategy process. While there is good sense in the proposed initiatives, but they are not new, and have had very limited affect at traffic volumes which continue to increase on Bendigo’s roads. It seems, to me, that council needs to place more effort on discovering why people choose some travel modes and not others. With such information council would be better able to bring about change to travel habits. Families and individuals have a set of values (or beliefs) which help form their attitude and dictate their behavior in everything in life including things like choice of housing type and location and mode of transport to work, school, shopping, etc. These values are developed through input from family, peers, education and the media. In the case of transport, Individuals will prioritise values such

ew N

as convenience, comfort, security, affordability, use of time, effects on the environment and their health. In the case of housing, values like location, affordability, life style, privacy, security and accessibility would be prioritised. People will prioritise these values differently but where there is commonality there is opportunity to intervene and gain success in changing behavior. For instance, if the reason for driving children to school (instead of having them walk or cycle) is based on a perceived lack safety and/or security... look at promoting and facilitating the formation of neighborhood walking buses, or cycling platoons, escorted by volunteer parents. This is not a new idea but worth recycling, especially if it was spearheaded by say the local neighborhood watch with support from the Police and VicRoads. Council, and VicRoads could assist by ensuring that there are designated “safe routes to school” by augmenting and signing such routes and improving road crossings where needed. a small thing maybe, but with a possible huge payback. Peak traffic volumes occur in the morning, between 8.15am

and 9.15am, because of the combination of work and school road trips and may be part of the reason that many parents consider that it is safer to drive the children to school. It is not so much the daily traffic volume that generates the demand to increase road capacity and traffic control, it is the traffic intensity at peak times. If the traffic intensity can be lowered, the existing road network will be adequate for a longer time and reduce the need to widen existing roads and create alternative routes... funding for which is limited. although somewhat radical, possibly impossible, just imagine the staggering of school and traditional business hours by, say, 30 minutes (i.e. change school times to 9.30am to 4.30pm). This will have the effect of flattening the morning and afternoon peak traffic volumes (allied with other measures, mentioned above) and reducing the traffic intensity to very manageable levels for a very long time. This is but one, important, issue that could be handled by attention to the study of what motivates people to do what they do and motivate them to change their behavior with benefits for the whole community.

A nativity link


THERE is a little-known part of Bendigo’s history that is retold in local households this time of year, usually on Christmas Eve. It’s a Christmas tale that is steeped in tradition and one that highlights the importance of our city to the greatest story ever told. Over the past weeks, children around the world have sat in front of nativity sets, as the story of the great journey of the three wise men was told at school concerts and community carols. But not many are aware of Bendigo’s unique role in that story. Because Bendigo was one of the few cities in the world to be founded by, and named after, a shepherd, when news of Jesus’ imminent birth was known, the city was given an opportunity to submit representatives to be in the running to be the three wise men. Bendigo’s representatives would enter the Factor competition, which was to be streamed live and available to download on an iGod. Among the local hopefuls to board the bus for the Holy Land was Greater Bendigo councillor Elise Chapman. Her recent hunger strike was the closest thing the city had to an act of martyrdom. Fellow councillor Helen Leach accompanied Cr Chapman, for moral support. Mayor Barry Lyons was obviously a candidate, but it was thought with his last name he would struggle to get through the first few rounds of the competition. Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters was also there. It is always important to have someone in the Northern Hemisphere at Christmas time wearing a red jacket, especially with all the new snow around. Given Jesus was conceived without a union, Lisa was also keen to go. Also chosen was Greg Bickley. His presence was controversial, as he had publicly stated he feared because the baby’s grandfather was not born in Bethlehem, Jesus would never be considered a real local.

Sitting next to him was his aptly-named advisor Peter Wiseman, who questioned whether the appearance of the Star of Bethlehem was anything new. He claimed “natural” stars like this had been appearing for millions of years, and that there is no evidence to suggest it was King-of-man made. Bendigo Health boss John Mulder was also a candidate. It was thought he could ensure Mary’s maternity suite was, well, stable enough for the delivery, and would be on hand if any last-minute renovations needed to be done. Not surprisingly, the Bendigo Spirit was asked to send a candidate and, also not surprisingly, they chose Gabrielle Richards. Bendigo Gold coach Aussie Jones was also named as a starter. If anyone was in need of a miracle... As the group got together to leave, they realised they hadn’t bought the new King a birthday present. They decided on gold, frankincense and myrrh, and thought it best to pop by the old mining site in West Bendigo on the way, knowing it was probably the only place in town they could pick up all three chemicals in the one spot. The local newspaper, the Bethlehem Adventist, which is published every seven days, was already prepared for the Bendigo visitors. Because Bethlehem in late BC was not a backwards place, their broadband was quite fast, and a local Bendigo paper had organised online coverage with The Adventist. They had given each of the Bendigo candidates a Forbidden Apple iPhone, and asked them to take 40 photos each, so they could use the new Bird of Pray app, a forerunner to Twitter, to lodge pics for their latest mega, or magi, gallery. Once ready, the group started their long journey to compete for a once-in-an-eternallifetime opportunity, all filing into a local bus, Christians, of course.

Closed from 4pm Friday December 20 re-opening 7.30am Thursday January 2, 2014. The truck wash facility will be closed from 1pm December 20, re-opening 7.30am January 2, 2014 (site will be padlocked shut).

Reading at work

with Dianne Dempsey

A second look



HILE you may be a quandary as to what to buy your friends and family for Christmas, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget books as an option â&#x20AC;&#x201C; second hand books. Gary Murray of Book Now says that many customers come in at this time of the year looking for out of print books that they know will be of particular interest to a family member or friend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be that their mother was always fond of a particular author or their father has an interest in family history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the more esoteric books we have cover bell ringing, raising fancy rats, monastic and cathedral carpentry, Tiffany lamps, lingerie, fairies and Blinky Bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Books donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay in print for very long these days and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we come into our own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our broader specialisations are Australian Literature, Australian Local Histories, Literature, Art and Music. As well we have a wide range of popular fiction, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books and biographies.â&#x20AC;? Book Now first opened in Bendigo 29 years ago in Wills Street. From there, they moved to Mitchell Street and then to Farmers Lane where they have been cosily settled for many years. Mr Murray said that while book


shops are closing all the time, they often get tourists who wander into the shop during the holidays and are excited by the treasure trove of books. They have more than 50,000

books, comfy chairs and coffee on hand while you have a browse. Book Now is open seven days a week except for Christmas day, Boxing Day and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. Ph: 5443 8587

HE Weekly did a straw poll of what some of our staff have been reading for the year and we came up with some great suggestions for your holiday reading list. Not surprisingly the books selected generally reflect our staff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tastes, interests and preoccupations. Our esteemed editor, Anthony Radford, said he was taken by Bruce Guthrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book on his experiences as editor of various papers including the Age and the Herald Sun. Guthrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience of being sacked by Rupert Murdoch from this later paper is detailed in Man Bites Murdoch: Four Decades in Print, Six Days in Court. Guthrie sued News Ltd for breach of contract and more importantly, he won. General manager Peter Kennedy was also attracted to the journalism theme and rated Pamela Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Killing Fairfax: Packer, Murdoch & the Ultimate Revenge as a damn good read. Generally about the declining fortunes of Fairfax, the author argues that the tradition of a big city newsroom is being eroded by the competition between the publishers and the onslaught of online publishing. Our star journalist Christine McGinn says she enjoyed The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Now a popular movie, the novel is set in

the 1990s where idiosyncratic Charlie goes to high school in Pittsburgh suburb. Our advertising features writer Nick Ateyo is a fishing tragic and says he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go past Carbelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fishing Catalogue (Grand View Media Group). Our sub-editor Sally Thompson loves Tim Winton and says his latest novel Eyrie lived up to her high expectations. Real estate co-ordinator Sabrina Smythe, an avid bike rider, was much taken by Tyler Hamiltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Secret Race, an expose of the bike touring drugs scandal. Features editor Steve Kendall was taken by Elizabeth Jane Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candid memoir Slipstream. Our graphic artists, Samantha Allen, Jayden Edwards and Aaron Arbuckle, obviously pining for a life of adventures, far away from computer screens, nominated the Hunger Games and Game of Thrones. And administration assistant, Vanessa Hughes, chose a classic novel, The Summer Book by Tove Janssom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understated, semi-autobiographical and quite beautiful,â&#x20AC;? she said My own personal favourite this year was Anne Patchettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. Her selection of autobiographical essays includes topics on writing, love and death.

CHRISTMAS MAGIC: Santa made the moment for this young visitor. Photo: BILL CONROY


A special time

AST Christmas saw the start of a special initiative which looks set to continue. Retail marketing manager Dannielle Downs held the first Sensitive Santa in 2012 at Bendigo Marketplace after a local mother called and asked whether a Santa event for special needs children would be possible. “At first we didn’t think we could make it happen one week into December as Santa hours and photography staff had already been booked,” Dannielle said. “However, we were determined to try. “Santa and photography staff were thrilled about the idea and didn’t mind the extra hours. From there everything else fell into place.” The first Sensitive Santa evening was held in December last year. “It was a very special evening for the families in attendance,” Dannielle said. “Many of them hadn’t had photographs of

their children with Santa since they were babies. “Every family walked away happy with a special photo keepsake of their children with Santa that they could keep forever.” In 2012 Bendigo Marketplace entered their Sensitive Santa event in the Australia and New Zealand shopping centre marketing awards. They won a gold award in the Little Guns community initiative category. “In 2013 we had time to plan Sensitive Santa and extend the initiative,” Dannielle said “We held four Sensitive Santa sessions this year. “The first on December 1 was a partnership between St Luke’s and Bendigo Marketplace holding a Sensitive Santa for foster children and their families.” Two more were held for special needs children and their families. One was also held in the children’s ward at the Bendigo Hospital last week.

weekly words with Steve Kendall

Criss-crossed Kringle This is no exclusive, the ABC had it, but Steve reveals his ploy for the perfect gift


HERE was an idiot on ABC local radio on Tuesday talking about Christmas. The host Fiona Parker introduced the subject of getting old, and whether the magic of Christmas fades. I have to admit the idiot was me, because carried away in the moment I let slip a secret. Trouble with live radio is it’s out there. Once said, never forgotten. Now I may be adding a bit of weight to my words here, and who knows who was listening, but I revealed the secret of this year’s Kris Kringle in the office. We have a $10 lucky dip this year, with the theme M. The gift has to be about M. I had been racking my brains for a present when last Saturday the long-suffering Mrs Kendall came back from her Kris Kringle. Hers was a more generous $25 KK, so there was a chance of something great. The person buying,

decided to spend the amount with two gifts, so Mrs K got a cat clock, and a rather lovely second gift. The second gift was a prepacked hot chocolate set. It had Marshmallow, a Mug and Milk chocolate mix. Mrs K’s three Ms became my ideal Kris Kringle for the lucky recipient of my gift. No this may seem cheap to you, but it’s re-gifting and recycling rolled into one. Sure I could keep the pretty mug with puppies on it, but I am sure there is someone out there who would enjoy it more, and yes I could drink the hot chocolate, but frankly I think marshmallows destroy a good

hot chocolate. So, dear colleague, when you opened your special Kris Kringle on Wednesday I piked out on paying. Tell you what though, when we are at our Christmas lunch later today I will get you a drink. As long as it’s beer, cider, wine, soft drink, tea or coffee, because that’s what is included on our lunch. Now I might be portraying myself as a bit careful with money. Nothing could be further from the truth, just ask Mrs K, she’s always telling me I spend too much on things I don’t need.

Anyway, back to the radio show. We decided things do lose the sparkle a bit as you get older, and we came to the conclusion perhaps Christmas is only for the kids. With that said, I am having a Christmas party at lunchtime today with my colleagues and then we all go off for at least a week. Hopefully there will be no repeat of the broken chair incident, the saga of the falling sales rep or the man who sat on the glass table. But as they say, what happens at the party stays at the party.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, December 20, 2013

dear dotty... Dear Dotty With the “Silly Season” now well and truly upon us, the old adage springs to mind “God gives us our relatives; thank God we can choose our friends.” What are your feelings in relation to this old gem? Eric Lakey, Bendigo Dear Eric How to cope with the foibles and irritations of your relatives is a real problem. One suggestion is to metaphorically place your feelings in a bag and leave them at the door when you visit them. You then sit at the table in a zombie-like state and don’t allow any of the barbs or comments affect you. When you go home take that bag with you, open it up and then scream and yell like a banshee. Dear Dotty Help! I’m feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to have “the perfect Christmas”. Every time I turn on the TV or open a magazine, there are celeb chefs telling me I should be pickling venison tongue, or marinating marachino cherries. Am I wrong to just want to shove a turkey in the oven, open a packet of frozen peas, and sit happily with a glass of champagne - with last year’s tacky decorations around me? Sarah, Strathfieldsaye Dear Sarah You are quite right to sit back with your turkey, frozen peas and roast spuds and treat the meal like an ordinary roast. One of the best Christmas Day rituals I have heard of

Illustration: “Wildey”

comes from a friend of mine. She and her son were pretty much alone in the world and they would plan their day carefully. Their favourite foods such as oysters and prawns and chocolate and champagne would be bought the day before, alongside a pile of DVDs and books. The rest of the day they would remain in their pyjamas and indulge in food and drink and books and films whenever they felt like it. Whenever there was a knock on the door they would hide behind the couch. Dear Dotty Hoping you can really help me. What has Bendigo got to offer lonely singles aged 50-60! I don’t like going to the pubs as I don’t drink and I don’t like pokies so where does one go in my age group to meet people? I’m not looking forward to Christmas at all. Regina Dear Regina My first thought is that there are many church groups in Bendigo who would be very happy to receive you in the name of friendship. Another thought is to make inquiries at the Bendigo Community Health Centre who have lot of groups specifically designed to help lonely people meet up. Good luck Regina and happy Christmas.

Walking to a prize E

PSOM Primary School received an early Christmas present this week from the Greater Bendigo council. Mayor Barry Lyons presented 15 mountain bikes and helmets to the principal and students of the school, as the grand prize winner of the Walk to School competition. Led by the Healthy Together Bendigo team, council received funding to support and run the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation’s Walk to School initiative to get more Bendigo families active. Cr Lyons said all Greater Bendigo primary schools were invited to participate.

“Walk to School was a monthlong activity that encouraged students and their families to walk, ride or scooter to and from school every day in November,” he said. “Awareness was also raised of the benefits for children in making physical activity a part of their daily routine. “It improves their physical health, friendships, the environment and their confidence.” To take part, schools simply promoted Walk to School messages during November and recorded students’ walking activities. “Parents were also encouraged to park the car a little fur-


ther away from the school gate when driving their kids to school and get in some extra activity or walk the whole way to school together with their children,” Cr Lyons said. “Incentives were also offered to encourage schools to participate including a teacher prize draw and the school grand prize draw of the bike fleet.” Epsom Primary School principal Kerry McGuffie said she is thrilled the school won the bikes. “These new bikes will definitely encourage the kids to ride more and be more active at school and at home,” she said. “It will also allow us to develop a bike education program.”

Local food industry insider with Marika McMahon

Meeting the moment

A. Ceviche is great dish to make in these hot months. Essentially it is raw fresh fish that is sliced thin and marinated in citrus juice, mainly lemon or lime. The acid of the citrus cooks the fish. Other ingredients are added to complete the dish, like chilli, sliced shallots, shaved fennel or fresh coriander. Try this with fresh prawns over Christmas or with kingfish or salmon. Q. Why do you brine meat? A. Brining meat is a great technique to use for meats that may be quite lean or become a bit dry from cooking. A good basic brine recipe is one part salt, one part sugar, eight parts water and some spices if you like. This adds flavour and helps break down the proteins of the meat which keeps the meat moist and juicy while cooking. Leave a whole chicken, duck breast or pork chops in the brine for two to three hours then pat dry before cooking.

even justify it as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered cookingâ&#x20AC;? alternative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you order sensibly it can be the same price as a counter meal. I think the shared plates work wonderfully for occasions where you may be dining with people you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know well. By sharing the dishes it means you can at least talk about what you are eating if all other conversation fails.

Or if you are like our trio on Monday, sharing the dishes means that the full paced conversation doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need to be interrupted by the food being placed on your table. I have got this down to such a fine art when ordering I now produce a highlighter from my bag, allocate how many dishes per person and each diner can then highlight their selection.

So what did we eat on Monday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; flathead tails, calamari salad, stuffed zucchini flowers, empanadas, beef tataki and the duck spring rolls. Two selections each, a great ladies lunch highlighting some great local producers including a couple I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mentioned yet in this column â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Simply Green Tomatoes from Boort and Muscovy Ducks from Bagshot.

Roll up, roll up, for a taste of turducken E

XPECTED to turn on a super Christmas feast at the last moment? I have one word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turduckenâ&#x20AC;?. This amazing feat of engastration is made by Meats on Brooke Street in Inglewood. It consists of a deboned duck stuffed into a deboned chicken and rolled into a deboned turkey. You can order a turducken from James at his Inglewood butcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll deliver to your home.


Another Christmas speciality they do is a pork rack which is marinated in apple sauce, white wine and brown sugar. James says this one is so good it is impossible to ruin. Also available for Christmas are their turkeys, smoked hams and aged beef. Meats on Brooke Street, 65 Brooke Street, Inglewood VIC 3517. 5438 3039 - Dianne Dempsey

Turkey Story We could give you a brilliant recipe for roasting a turkey on Christmas day but I think failures make for good apocryphal tales for the years to come. Tales such as remember the year mum forget to defrost the turkey and we had to soak it in the bath? Or remember when the dog snatched the turkey off the bench and dragged it through the backyard before we grabbed it off him, washed it and cooked it anyway? Of course if you want to be boring you can fill your turkey with a cranberry and breadcrumb stuffing, baste it with dripping and cook in a moderate oven. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DIANNE DEMPSEY




A. For me the only rice to use for making Paella is Callasparra or Bomba. From Murcia in the Southeast of Spain this famous rice absorbs much more liquid than other rice, allowing more flavoursome stock to be cooked into the Paella. I also use this rice to make a delicious rice pudding.

heritage matters

At the fall of the hammer W

HEN David John Andrew died on November 19, 1928, the Bendigo Municipal Band marched in his funeral cortege and he was given the honour of a full fireman’s funeral. The fact that such importance was placed on Mr Andrew’s contribution to his adopted city speaks volumes about the esteem in which he was held. However, it must be pointed out that not all in the community shared the profound affection for Mr Andrew. At one stage when he was still a councillor of the city, there was strong criticism of the man and his character, but it was Mr Andrew’s attitude not to take notice. However, he did resign from the council in 1908 as the strength of his business ability was questioned. Shortly after he was re-nominated for council and returned unopposed. During the following year he was given the mantle of mayor by his fellow councillors. On four separate occasions he was to serve as mayor of Bendigo. Mr Andrew was born just out of Castlemaine on the Loddon, on November 10, 1866, he was educated at the Castlemaine State School and his schooling was augmented with private tuition. Upon completing his schooling he was apprenticed as a civil engineer, but later he was to follow into his father’s business as an auctioneer and as a produce

merchant together with his brother Charles. The family business was located opposite the City Market, on the corner of Williamson and Hargeaves streets, now the Hargreaves Mall. There was hardly a public movement in Bendigo in which Mr Andrew did not participate. It was the fire brigade which drew most of his time, of this, he was made captain in 1898 and continued in that capacity until the time of his death. He was prominent in the Presbyterian Church, a Freemason, an active member of the Caledonian Society and a member of the Council of the Victorian Scottish Union. His contribution towards the state’s fire policy should not be underestimated. On several occasions Mr Andrew was the chairman of the Country Fire Brigade Demonstrations. Like a number of other of Bendigo’s well known auctioneers Mr Andrew was also intimately involved with the Bendigo Easter Fair, having been its secretary for quite a number of years. He served on the Bendigo Hospital Board, also that of the Benevolent Home. During World War I he became involved in a variety of movements such as the Red Cross, Wounded Soldiers’ Fund and the Bendigo Patriotic Fund. Additionally he supported those serving as well as the prisoners.

WORK IN PROGRESS: The Cathedral was built in stages.

Cathedral continues to grow T

COMMUNITY-MINDED: David John Andrew was associated with many causes.

There was scarcely a charity or worthy cause with which he did not become associated. Mr Andrew was induced by the Country Party to stand for the Senate to represent Victoria in the Commonwealth Parliament. His predecessor in parliament

was Joseph Hannan and following Mr Andrew’s death in 1928, another Bendigonian, Richard Abbott, succeeded him. In 1908 Mr Andrew also served on the Welcome Committee for the officers and sailors of the American Great White Fleet.

HE formal laying of the foundation stone occurred in June, 1897 and four years later, in 1901,the first stage of the Cathedral was completed. It was some time before further building continued. Bishop Reville who followed on from Bishop Crane, decided that there were needs more pressing than completing the Cathedral. His concerns were that churches, convents and schools needed to be built and charitable works needed to be done. For more than 50 years the only structural work done was on the front lantern towers in 1908 and the front granite fence in 1934. Internally a large pipe organ, built by Bishop and Son of London, was installed in 1905. The golden jubilee of the opening of the Cathedral was held in 1951. - Diane Dempsey.

Musos in the making T

HE top end of Mitchell Street will be definitely rocking with young and aspiring musicians during Musoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stuff summer school program next month. Now in their third year, these popular programs provide an ideal opportunity for music students to further their talents with guitar, bass or drums tuition while gaining valuable experience playing with other students before performing an end of program concert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year is the first time the program has had the services of four experienced tutors, ensuring that all students receive the opportunity for expert tuition in a fun and creative environment,â&#x20AC;? Musoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stuff Music School coordinator Louise McColl said. Three, three hour sessions are held over three days between Wednesday, January 9 and Friday, January 10. Classes are split according to age, with

The firing squad of comedy T

HERE was one brave local, Patrick Walters, who stood up to perform in the open mic section at the Shamrock Comedy Club last month. Given that the main act was Glenn Robbins followed by Dave Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neil, Mr Walters had some reason for trepidation. The host of the Shamrock Comedy Club, Mick Neven, always invites locals to participate in the open mic section as a means of testing their toes in the nerve wracking world of stand up comedy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could say I was quietly panicking,â&#x20AC;? Mr Walters said. The only other times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve performed have been at uni gigs in front of my mates and I paid them to laugh, so that was all right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came out onto the stage there were 200 people there all waiting for me to try and make them laugh. I can honestly say I could face a firing squad after doing that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately I was well received, and got plenty of laughs. Well my mum and sister thought I was hysterical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have such respect for performers like Glenn Robbins who has been a stalwart in the

Wanderlust in Castlemaine P


comedy scene for years. Glenn of course has been in Kath and Kim and Upper Middle Bogan and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a brilliant stand up.â&#x20AC;? The Comedy Club is now a regular feature at the Shamrock Hotel and locals are always invited to participate along side the heavy guns. Mr Walters however has been only one of a handful who has actually faced the music.

LAYING songs off their upcoming and much anticipated release Wanderlust Melbourne band The Jape Squad hit the stage of The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine next week. The outfit have been together with various lineups for more than a decade now, and have a dedication to relativistic ideology of collaboration. Having released four albums, four eps and three singles, the band are excited to be releasing this their fifth long player release. The Jape Squad see themselves as

a musical family who, like brothers, put absolute faith in each other creatively. This allows each member to safely place individual creativity in the hands of others.

HERE is a special feeling and a sense of awe when you get close to a steam locomotive at the Maldon or Castlemaine Stations. Even when steam was the norm on the railway, people still found the big locomotives fascinating. That unmistakable sound of the loco whistle, would have young and old watching out to get a good view of the train passing with its mix of goods and passenger cars. Victorian Goldfields Railway provides ample opportunities to get up close to these steaming marvels of engineering with regular services on the historic broad-gauge branchline, linking



Maldon and Castlemaine. At the Castlemaine end of the line, visitors can inspect the locomotive as it stands at the platform waiting to take passengers to Maldon. All the sights, sounds, smells and movements of an authentic steam era experience are preserved in all their glory for the public to enjoy. A special train will take passengers from Castemaine to Maldon to enjoy the Twilight Food and Wine Festival on the evening of Saturday, January 18. Bookings for this event are essential. Visit or phone 5470 6658 for further information.

Bendigo Weekly – Friday, December 20, 2013



Junior football has new focus INCREASED female participation, tackling a dropoff in participation in 15 to 18 year olds and an under-12 girls competition in the Bendigo Junior Football League will all be targeted as part of a strategic plan outlined by AFL Central Victoria. The completion of the plan was the first order of business for the AFL CV commission, that was introduced after an AFL Victoria restructure last year. The plan outlines the work the commission and AFL CV will aim to complete during 2014, with the introduction of a social AFL9’s competition and parent surveys around Auskick already completed. Participation, club development, umpires, facilities, administration, coaching and player welfare and competition structures are all areas targeted in the nine pillar strategic summary. AFL Central Victoria commission chairman Col Brady said the process had been time consuming, in order to gather the required feedback from the community and what areas to focus on. “Over 2013 we have undertaken an extensive period of engagement as we sought to understand the issues in the football community that are of greatest concern and also present the greatest opportunity,” he said. “The result of the work performed is that we have formulated a strategy to grow and support our game in the region.” Not only is the development of girls football a key, but AFL CV is also looking to create links between local clubs and schools, as well as between Bendigo Football League under-18 teams and district league 17-and-under sides.

Cage adds new scope THE hammer throw cage at the La Trobe University Bendigo Athletics Complex has been upgraded to international standard ahead of the Oceania Masters Athletics Championships next month. Greater Bendigo council funded the upgrade to International Association of Athletics Federations, which was part of a 2013-14 budget commitment, costing nearly $45,000. Council Active and Healthy Communities manager Patrick Jess said the works included re-configuring the cage’s steelworks and replacing the netting. “To make the cage safer for competitors, officials and track athletes, the gates were widened to ensure the hammer can better land within its allocated field,” he said. “After 14 years, the netting was also past its usedby date and was replaced, further improving the cage’s safety.” Athletics Bendigo’s Peter Barrett said up to 30 people locally compete in hammer throw and the complex will

host the 2014 Oceania Masters Athletics Championships. “This facility will be a boost for Bendigo’s hammer and discus throw athletes, as we have a number of up and coming athletes who hope to one day compete on the international stage,” Barrett said. “Athletics Bendigo also looks forward to welcoming well-known Australian and international throwers to Bendigo to compete at this IAAF-accredited throws facility in the future.” The Masters games will be the first major event to test out the facility. Running for nine days, the OMA championships will see some of the best athletes over 30 years of age from around the world competing in various events. The showpiece of the games will be the half marathon and 10km walk, the latter conducted around the CBD streets. The championships run from January 4-12, with most events conducted at the Retreat Road athletics complex.

Emu Valley Cricket Association – Division 1

Eleven runs beat the undefeated SPRING GULLY caused the upset of the Emu Valley Cricket Association season last weekend, recording a thrilling 11-run victory over the previously undefeated Emu Creek at JG Edwards Oval. The Crows dismissed the reigning premiers for 209 after a dramatic batting collapse saw the Emus lose 7/29 to stumble to their first loss of the season. Jason Tovey (4/40) and Liam Pilcher (4/70) dominated with the ball for Spring Gully while earlier in the day Brad Rowe 53 top scored for Emu Creek, with Daniel Chamberlain (38) and Tim Hobbs (36) also making contributions before the collapse. Brendon Lummis and Brad Webster made sure Golden Gully would recapture that winning feeling heading into the pre-Christmas one-day games, each making half centuries to lead the Cobras to victory over Sedgwick. Lummis (73) and Webster (63) guided the Cobras to 5/233 in reply to the Rams’ 194, while Nathan Hamblin fell just short of a half century of his own on 48, and put on 100 for the second wicket with Lummis. Best with the ball for Sedgwick was skipper Dustin Elliott (2/13), who also added 47 not out in Sedgwick’s second innings of 1/80. Axe Creek had a much im-

proved batting performance posting 257 but still fell well short of United’s mammoth total of 9/397 set on day one. Half centuries from Charles Ready (59) and the reliable Travis Nolan (53 not out) along with good support from Rob Fisher (47) and Dave Cannings (44) paved the way for the Cowboys, but only Roger Kelly joined that quartet in double figures with 19. Dominic Colville (4/27) dominated with the ball for the Tigers, with Mick Frilay also picking up

two wickets. The second major batting collapse of the weekend was the catalyst for West Bendigo’s win over Mandurang, with the Rangas dismissed for 159 after being 2/109 earlier in the day. Rhys Williams top scored with 51 for Mandurang, who had Phil Berry, Warrick Behrens and Ben Rodda all make starts but fail to go on with the job.

Cash backing adds to sport support BUDDING regional Victorian basketballers received a boost last week, with Basketball Victoria Country and Molten basketballs announcing a partnership with Madison Sport. The five year deal across a range of BVC programs is worth more than $100,000 and ensures that the governing body of the sport in regional Victoria is able to effectively deliver programs to grass roots participants. “This partnership endorses the standing Basketball Victoria Country has in regional sport,” BVC Manager, David Huxtable said. “BVC is very much into developing long term sustainable partnerships that benefit both Regional Basketball and our supporting partner, in this case Madison Sports and Molten Basketballs. “Molten are a quality product and BVC are excited to continue a partnership that will now expand to eight years.” BVC conducted an Under 14 Development Camp at the Bendigo Stadium last week, to prepare athletes who have been chosen to represent Vic Country at the Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup in Albury in January 2014. The sport is booming in Bendi-

go and right across Australia, with a recent survey pointing to the influence basketball has in all sectors of the community. The recently completed Victorian Basketball Economic Impact Statement states that basketball is one of Victoria’s most significant sport and recreation sub-sectors. In 2012, basketball in Victoria generated an estimated $313.97 million in total economic contribution to the Victorian economy, provided remuneration (in salaries, wages and honorariums) to 5459 people and attracted 1.87 million non-playing participants and spectators to basketball matches and events throughout the state. “The statistics do not relate just to the metropolitan area of Victoria and they are very relevant to regional locations,” Huxtable said. “A recent independent study of a 2013, under 12 three day event in Traralgon found that the event had an economic benefit of around one and a half million dollars for the local community. “The economic footprint recently released demonstrates the significance of basketball in Victoria and the position that we are in nationally.”

Lady Braves’ first signing for 2014 is the return of Heather Oliver

Ollie back in the team By JOEL PETERSON

IT was a busy week of news for the Bendigo Bank Braves and Lady Braves this week, with the club moving to the South East Australian Basketball League’s south conference next season and Heather Oliver revealed as the Lady Braves’ first signing for 2014. Oliver returns to the Braves after a standout season in 2013 that saw her average 12.1 points per game along with 6.1 rebounds. Her season included two 29-point performances followed by an amazing 38 point, seven rebound effort against Geelong that saw her claim the round 13 player of the week award and player of the month honours for June. “I’m looking forward to the upcoming Braves season and really hope that we can go one step further if we make finals next year – especially after we came so close this last season,” Oliver said this week. “I hope to be able to continue contributing to the team in any way I can,” Oliver said. Lady Braves coach Jonathan Goodman was thrilled to have Oliver back at the club. “I am really happy to have Ollie come back. She was a great part of the group last year,” Goodman, headed into his second season at the helm of the Braves, said. “She is a strong contributor and we are really looking for her to take her game to another level as we place greater expectation on her leadership and scoring prowess.” The Lady Braves are expected to be unveiling more players for the 2014 season in coming weeks, while the Men’s team is

close to completing deals for its two import players. Meanwhile, the Braves and Lady Braves are headed south in the 2014 South East Australian Basketball League, with the two Bendigo-based sides moved to the league’s South conference. The men’s side has played 21 seasons in the South since the team’s formation in 1985 and will return to its traditional conference in what will be the club’s 30th season. The Lady Braves have only ever played in the East, after a restructure in 2008 shifted Bendigo to that conference. The league restructures its conferences every two seasons, with Ballarat and Knox both moving east in 2014. “As the league does every two years, the conference structure was reviewed in order to assess the overall fairness and evenness of the competition,” a league statement said. “Accordingly, some movement of teams was deemed necessary. However, the men’s and women’s teams of any particu-

From Page 40 Wilson was selected to represent her country at senior level for the first time earlier this year, before winning the South East Australian Basketball League’s most valuable player award with Knox. “When we brought in Kelly Wilson, who hadn’t played for Australia since the 2007 World University Games, it created a lot of excitement, a lot of enthusiasm in the group and depth,” Joyce said. “The addition of new players created healthy competition within the team and that helps create an environment where everyone is pushing each other to improve.” The Jayco Australian Opals training camp will take place from January 12 to15 at the Basketball Australia National Centre of Excellence at the AIS, Canberra.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming Braves season and really hope that we can go one step further lar club will still be in the same conference.” A Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence team has also been introduced for next season, meaning the Men now play 26 games while the Women play 24, both down two from previous years. The number of rounds in the season has also been shortened accordingly, from 21 down to 20. The Braves and Lady Braves will play their first home game

Good news flows for Spirit team

ON THE MOVE: The Lady Braves are moving to the south conference. against Brisbane on Saturday, March 22 in a double-header, before travelling to Knox in round two for the Women’s grand final rematch. The Braves play Dandenong, who ended their championship campaign last season, for the first time in round nine. Bendigo will also travel to

the Minerdome to take on archrival Ballarat in round four, for one of only two Wednesday night fixtures in the 2014 season. The Braves play six of the first nine games of the season at home, in an early stretch that could set the agenda for the club’s title hopes.

• • • Meanwhile, a three-game advantage at the top of the Women’s National Basketball League is the aim of Bernie Harrower and the Bendigo Spirit as the side heads into a pivotal clash with Dandenong tonight. The 12-1 Spirit takes on the second placed Rangers (10-3) at Bendigo Stadium, with a win meaning the defending WNBL champions will go three games clear atop the standings. Stopping Jenna O’Hea and Leilani Mitchell will be key if Bendigo is to claim its 13th victory, the pair combining for 45 points, 17 assists and 13 rebounds in the Rangers’ 100-85 win over Sydney Uni last weekend. Bendigo have had the recent advantage over Dandenong, winning nine of their past 10 match-ups, including a thrilling eight-point win in round five this year. The Spirit gets a two-week break after the clash against Dandenong before taking on Canberra at AIS Arena on Friday, January 3.

IT is hard to imagine things could get better for Bendigo Spirit, currently atop the WNBL ladder and on a 12-game winning streak ahead of a vital clash against Dandenong. However, with the announcement on Wednesday that four Spirit players have been included in a 21-strong Australian Opals squad to train in Canberra next month, that’s exactly what has happened. Gabe Richards, Kelly Wilson, Elyse Penaluna and Tessa Lavey have all been selected by Opals coach Brendan Joyce to train at the Australian Institute of Sport from January 12-15. The camp will mark the beginning of the journey to next year’s FIBA World Championships in Turkey. “This camp is a great opportunity for these younger players and players on the fringe of the Opals program to come in a get the chance to impress and put their names up for consideration,” Joyce said. “The camp gives us the opportunity to introduce our style of play and expose players to what the Opals are about from a strategic and cultural point of view.” The selection comes as a major boost for Elyse Penaluna, who is coming off her best game in Spirit colours after putting up 25 points and 12 rebounds against Sydney Uni at the weekend. Penaluna told the Weekly earlier this month that she still harboured ambitions to represent her country after two injury-ravaged years, and the 25-year-old is in the kind of form that could see her make a return to the green and gold. Joyce, appointed head coach of the Opals in May, praised the Spirit’s Kelly Wilson, who burst back into the national spotlight in Bendigo’s WNBL championship run in March. Continued Page 39
