HOME SAFE: Selemani Opece Ndikumana and his family are happy in Bendigo. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

By DIANNE DEMPSEY THE only way to distinguish the brick house in Strathdale is the nine pairs of shoes which sit outside the front door. They belong to the Muslim fam-


ily of Selemani Opece Ndikumana and his wife Irakoze Nurah, their six children and a family friend. Selemani and Irakoze have come a long way to find this simple home in Bendigo. Selemani left the ethnic wars of

Burundi in East Africa in 2005. It wasn’t until after two years of separation that Irakoze and their three children were able to join Selemani in Australia. In 2009, their first Australianborn child was born in Shepparton.

“We were so happy to have our baby in a safe place that we called him Australia,� Selemani said. Once you step inside the house of many shoes you automatically brace for chaos. – Continued Pages 4 and 5

DRAGON TIME: The new year will be celebrated. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN THE Bendigo Chinese Association has issued an open invitation to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The event is the most important festival and celebration to Chinese people. Locals are invited to join the festivities on Saturday, February 1 at the Dai Gum San Precinct starting at 6.30pm.

For the first time this year, you can see performing carp as well as carp morphing into dragons. The new dragon float will make a grand entrance as it arrives at the Bendigo Chinese Precinct. This will be a contemporary interpretation of an ancient tale

of the carp changing into a dragon. The BCA said it was an exciting way to tell the story while respecting the deep cultural links to the dragon. The Plum Blossom Dance Team, Chinese Lion dancing and much more will also welcome in the Chinese New Year.

Fourth hot day in a row puts city on high alert


Bendigo on fire watch By CHRISTINE McGINN

BENDIGONIANS are on fire alert today as the mercury is set to soar. Today is expected to reach 43 with a Severe Fire Rating Warning in place across the Northern Country district. Bendigo has sweltered through its second hottest and longest recorded heat wave since Black Saturday this week. The Country Fire Authority have issued a state-wide Total Fire Ban today to prepare for the extreme heat and weather conditions. CFA community education co-ordinator Paul Tangey said the fire ratings reflect this week’s hot and dry weather conditions.

“There have been three Total Fire Ban days in a row which is pretty severe,” he said. “But it is put on for a reason, to alert people that conditions are extreme.” The mercury rose to 43.8 on Monday, Bendigo’s hottest day

Wednesday night dropped to only 28.6°C, easily the hottest night in the city’s history. An increased number of patients have also presented to

Bushby said a broad range of people have been suffering. “In my 15 years in emergency medicine, I think it’s the hottest and longest stretch I’ve been involved in and I am certainly seeing the greatest number of people,” Dr Bushby said.

More staff have been rostered to cater to the emergency department’s increased demand. Bendigonians also struggled to sleep on Wednesday night as the mercury only dropped to 28.6, another heat record. Yet, Mr Tangey stressed today’s conditions would not mimic the destruction of Black Saturday. “People need to stay alert, be aware of their local area and keep up to date with information. People need to make sure they are continuously ready,” he said. “People can’t get complacent, a fire can happen at anytime.”

LODDON Campaspe councils have joined forces with other regional and rural municipalities to seek renewal of vital State Government funding programs. Three state programs have delivered $360 million over four years for initiatives in rural and regional areas through the Country Roads and Bridges ($160m), Local Government Infrastructure ($100m) and Putting Locals First ($100m) funding streams. Chair of the Loddon Campaspe Councils group and Greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons said councils need to show a united front and demonstrate the valuable role that State funding had played. Greater Bendigo council has received $2m from the LGIP for the new generation Bendigo Library and $200,000 from the PLFP for the Safe Transport Space in central Bendigo

HEATWAVE PROMPTS A WATER SAFETY WARNING AS Bendigo lives through a heat wave, police are sending a timely reminder to play it safe around the water, and limit alcohol intake when swimming or keeping an eye on the kids. Bendigo Emergency Management Acting Inspector Pat Ryle said there was a tendency for people to be complacent with water safety, particularly when consuming alcohol. “Lake Eppalock is one of many lakes which is full this summer and is a great place to spend a hot day; however caution must always be taken around the water,” Inspector Ryle said. “Boaters are also reminded that there is a zero blood alcohol limit for those operating a vessel under 21 years of age and their supervisor, and a .05 blood alcohol limit for those over 21.”

HAVE FAITH BendigoWee kly

Contributing for decades By CHRISTINE McGINN

MUSLIMS have been living, working and contributing in Bendigo for decades. The Weekly spoke with a local Muslim community member, Heri Febriyanto about living in Greater Bendigo. Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Muslim community has outgrown its small prayer space at La Trobe University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;La Trobe University was kind enough to provide a very small space for prayers about 15 years ago to cater for the growing number of Muslim students and community,â&#x20AC;? Dr Febriyanto said. But the proposed Bendigo Islamic Centre will feature a place of worship, general community facilities for social and sporting activity use. People of all faiths are invited to visit and use the facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mosque itself will be open to all to visit,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The greatest benefit it will bring to all the citizens of Bendigo, both Muslim and non-Muslim

At first there is a tumble of smiling and shy children: the baby Opese Yamba, 2, Sultanat, 4, Irakozeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only little girl, Sydney, 10, whose name was inspired by the Olympic Games which Selemani watched in Burundi, Cress, 12, and the oldest child, Spain Madrid, 15. Also visiting the family is nine-year-old Ickral, the child of family friends. Quickly though, the tumble of children settles. Sultanat, Irakozeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little girl stays by her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side on the couch and the oldest child, Spain Madrid, stays to listen to the interview with his parents. The other children have retreated to the kitchen to play games, giggle and draw. The calmness comes from the structure that lies at the heart of the family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Praying together gives us guidance,â&#x20AC;? Selemani said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children settle down. We are quiet, we are peaceful, we meditate. We pray here in the living room for five or 10 minutes, five times a day. We pray before the sun comes up, in the afternoon, late afternoon, evening and night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kneel at the front and

lead the prayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The little ones donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do this. If the older children complain I say to them that God gave us 24 hours a day. He gave us life. Surely you can give God back a few minutes each day and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thank youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to him.â&#x20AC;? Irakoze agrees that the prayers and adherence to the Koran keeps the family relaxed.

He gave us life. Surely you can give God back a few minutes each day â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, it would be much better if we had a mosque where the whole community can comes together and pray,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the mosque we teach the children together, it is also a social time as well.â&#x20AC;? Slight, demure and shy, Irakoze wears the traditional veil or jihab. She drives a car and like

any other mother takes her children to kindergarten and school and sometimes participates in school activities. Personally, she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had any negative responses to her veil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not like I wear a burqa which covers women almost completely, allowing only their eyes to be visible, which is much more extreme,â&#x20AC;? she said. Selemani says that the people of Bendigo have been kind and generous to him and his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been looking for work since coming to Bendigo in 2008. I was a jeweller in Burundi. I started a jewellry course at RMIT but the travelling was too difficult.,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found casual work at IGA and at the moment I am working as a casual delivery driver for Crusts delivering pizzas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is how kind people are, at Crusts they make special halal pizzas for me and my family to take home.â&#x20AC;? Muslims are only allowed to eat halal food under Islamic law. The most common example of non-halal food is pork. Apart from pork other items must be prepared in a particular way.

SHORTLY after the 9-11 attacks, the Shepparton community united. It decided to hold an interfaith religious ceremony. “It was unusual to see the local catholic Monsignor preaching inside the local mosque,” Ethnic Council of Shepparton manager Chris Hazelman said. For the city, an hour and a half from Bendigo, this was nothing new. Shepparton has three mosques, with council recently approving a fourth, and a stunning Sikh temple. “It proudly started off with the Albanian community who built the first mosque in Victoria

in Shepparton in 1960,” Greater Shepparton City mayor Jenny Houlihan said. “The trowel that laid the first bricks in 1956 is in the Immigration Museum in Melbourne. “We are very proud of that history. “We also have a Turkish mosque, an Iraqi mosque and we have just issued a permit for a new mosque for the Afghanis. “To us it is quite a normal thing and does reflect the diversity of our community.” Throughout the 54-year history of the mosques, and the decades of community involvement beforehand, the locals have taken it all in their stride. “I believe everybody in our

SECURING its position as Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vee-Dubâ&#x20AC;? capital, Bendigo is pinning itself on the motoring map. A vintage red 1974 Volkswagen Beetle will be erected on a pole 1.5 metres above Oasis Car Spa.

Support grows for Thomsons LOCALS are generously supporting the Thomson family after the Rosalind Park tree tragedy last month. Goodstart Early Learning centre Golden Square is celebrating Patiya Thomson’s life on Saturday between 10am to 1pm. Children will be entertained with pony rides, face painting, a wildlife display and a sausage sizzle. A silent auction will run throughout the celebration day to raise funds for the Kristy Thomson Appeal. Twelve local bands will also rock out at the Golden Vine Hotel on February 2 to raise funds for the Thomson family. The rock pub day will draw a crowd from 11am to 10pm at the King Street pub. Owners Mark Elliott and Liz Wright decided to help after understanding the challenge of losing a child. Event entry is $10 for adults and a gold coin donation for children under 18 with food platters on sale all day. A motorcycle ride and family day will also kick off at the Allies Hotel on February 16. The ride will start at 10am and participation

costs $10. Locals are also invited to the hotel at 1pm with $10 entry and food provided. Five fundraising events have already run since the start of the year. Community organising committee spokesman Michael McKern said the community support for the family was staggering. “While the family gathers around Kristy to support her... the community is working hard behind the scenes to help in any way possible,” he said. “A group of concerned locals have joined forces to co-ordinate the fundraising events to ensure the best outcome for Kristy and the family.” Ms Thomson remains in the Alfred Hospital with serious spinal injuries but attended her daughter’s funeral on Monday. Locals can donate at any Bendigo Bank branch or online at kristythomson. If people are planning fundraising events and would like to be included in the publicity please email au.

Runway a hot topic By CHRISTINE McGINN

HEAT is causing significant damage to Bendigo’s ageing airport runway. Almost at the end of its lifespan, the top layer of the runway’s tarmac is bubbling and crackling as the mercury rises. Greater Bendigo council is lobbying the Federal Government to commit $5 million to stage two of the air-

port’s redevelopment. Mayor Barry Lyons said stage two was crucial. “There have been no significant infrastructure upgrades or improvements to the runway since it was built in 1970, which is inappropriate for a city of Bendigo’s size and nature,” he said. “Apart from some ad hoc repairs as required, the runway has virtually been left untouched and as a result it

is now deteriorating rapidly.” A $15m, 1.5-kilometre runway would be built under stage two. Council and the Victorian Government have already committed $5m each towards the project. More than 25 hangar spaces are being built under the stage one works. Council acting chief executive officer Stan Liacos said the north end, where

Family life rebuilt â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good spot, close to town. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you are in the bush until something like that happens,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Kidd said Bendigo was not prepared for the fire, he waited for the fire engines to come but they only came after it passed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody learnt a lesson that day and took up their own personal cause, â&#x20AC;&#x153; wife Pauline said.

It was just chaos that day, where the roads were blocked sides, Mr Kidd knew he was in danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just chaos that day, where the roads were blocked,â&#x20AC;? he said. The fire raced up the pine trees in his yard, swiftly charring the parts and semirestored cars before tearing down the family home. Fortunately, Mr Kiddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and children were safe at a birthday party in Kennington. They had left earlier before the fire broke out. Mr Kidd said they â&#x20AC;&#x153;lost it allâ&#x20AC;?. Five years on, the lessons learnt are about rebuilding and growth but more importantly, the strength of the community.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really was a day where everybody had to step up, where ever they were, whatever they were doing. People were doing things without thought about their own life.â&#x20AC;? Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community spirit was alive on one of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darkest days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were about 15 blokes saving a house, three houses up. It was incredible. If they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been there another two houses would have gone down,â&#x20AC;? Mr Kidd said. Mr Kidd felt the community spirit when friends and strangers would come to their lot days after to check on the family.

He recounted the numerous locals who brought things to help, offered assistance and listened to their story of survival. Mrs Kidd said the whole community grieved for the loss of homes and importantly one life, taken on that fateful day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was important for the community to share in that grief and help. It was part of their process too,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When something like this happens it awakens your potential of something you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realise you are capable of and makes you step out of that comfort zone.â&#x20AC;? With smiles, the Kidds said their new home was â&#x20AC;&#x153;the joy on the other sideâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took two years before the green came back. As soon as we started building the house, the rain came,â&#x20AC;? Mr Kidd said. The Kidds moved into their new home on the same block in 2011. While sitting under the verandah of their new home, Mrs Kidd stressed the importance of growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to get your reality into perspective of what is important,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is for living.â&#x20AC;?

A ROARING fire tore around Craig Kiddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Bendigo home, stretching along all but one side. The inferno heat and dark, smoke ridden sky are clear as day for the Black Saturday survivor. Unaware of the unfolding danger, Mr Kidd said his Sparrowhawk Road neighbour alerted him to the Maiden Gully fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just waiting for it to cool down to finish a job,â&#x20AC;? he said. A car restorer, Mr Kidd, said the fire tore to the far east of his property before fireballs raced across the hill. By the time Mr Kidd saw the fire racing, it had jumped

the road and was heading along the gully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just so quick, it just blew through one of the houses that had a wire fence,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were bushes on the fence line leading to the house and then the house was on fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was nothing I could do. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem real.â&#x20AC;&#x153; Surrounded on three


NEXT month will mark five years since Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest natural disaster. One man died and 58 homes were destroyed in the Bendigo Black Saturday fire on February 7, 2009. As the anniversary looms, Bendigo will remember the utter devastation and the heroic acts it inspired. In the coming weeks, the Bendigo Weekly will share the journey and memories of those affected by the fires, in the lead-up to the anniversary.

Working for a cancer cure LaST year, local business woman Lisa Smith rallied together numerous Bendigo businesses to raise funds to support Ovarian Cancer australia. Together, they raised more than $10,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was completely blown away by the generosity of everyone involved,â&#x20AC;? Mrs Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fantastic outcome but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still so much work to be done. We are hoping to do even better this year.â&#x20AC;? The fundraiser is on again this February and Mrs Smith, herself a survivor of ovarian cancer, is calling on volunteers to sell teal ribbons and emery boards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local businesses can get involved by agreeing to sell merchandise in their stores and offices,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also need volunteers who are willing to sell ribbons in shopping centres and other public places. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about awareness as much as anything else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to talk to people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; spread the word about this horrible disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be difficult to diagnose ovarian cancer because the symptoms are ones that many women will have from time to time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer report four types of symptoms most frequently.â&#x20AC;? These are abdominal or pelvic pain, increased abdominal size or persistent abdominal bloating, needing to urinate often or urgently and feeling full after eating a

Tackling arson BUSHFIRES are very much in our minds this week, but too many of those fires are either deliberately or recklessly lit.

PRESSURE’S ON: Junior doctors Chris Xu, Kerian Robinson and Caitlin Brabazon get hands on. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN NEW junior doctors were learning the ropes this week with orientation at Bendigo Health. The 35 new doctors will soon start their 12-month internships. Bendigo Health chief medical officer André Nel said it was great to see so many medical graduates opting to further their training here in Bendigo. “Working as a junior doctor can be very rewarding and also very de-

manding. The internship provides new doctors with an opportunity to further develop their skills in a supported environment,” Dr Nel said. This year, 20 of the interns are Monash University graduates, nine are graduates of the University of Melbourne, and six have graduated from other medical schools. Many of the interns have previously undertaken clinical rotations in

Bendigo during their training. Of last year’s interns, soon to be hospital medical officers or HMOs, 11 will continue working at Bendigo Health in 2013. “This is good news for Bendigo Health and residents,” Dr Nel said. “Interns who are training with us are also choosing to continue to live and work in Bendigo and throughout the Loddon Mallee region.”

Young guns join the team NEW Bendigo real estate company Sutherland Property has pulled off somewhat of a coup. The small husband-and-wife team of Keith and Karen Sutherland have added two of Bendigo’s real estate young guns to their business. Rory Somerville and Brenton Mason have joined the company with a wealth of experience in, and passion for, the local industry. “Their youth, drive and ambition to succeed in helping both vendors and purchasers will add

to the 50 years’ experience that Karen and I both have,” Mr Sutherland said. “As a team we have so much to offer, both with experience, energy and new and innovative marketing ideas.” Mrs Sutherland said the additions made the company a “real” real estate alternative. “We are blown away to have Rory and Brenton on board as this takes our new business to a whole new level,” she said. “We have been overwhelmed by the public support in our first

six months of business and believe that we have so much more to offer in the future. “With the inclusion of Rory and Brenton we are able to continue to offer the Bendigo community our support of important fundraising activities, as this is something that Rory has done and believes in as its part of his philosophy to give back and help others.” Contact Rory on 0409 195 658 or Brenton on 0466 897 917 or call the office on 5441 7755 for more details.

Floodline Kathryn Heyman Allen & Unwin, Paperback $29.99


N the eve of its annual gay Mardi Gras the town of Horneville is destroyed by a flood. Mikey Brown, founding member of Pentecostal church NuDay and host of its cable show, Shopping for Jesus, embarks on a mission of mercy with her two sons and a trailer load of care packages. Talent, the eldest, struggles with the loss of his father eight years ago and is preoccupied with the shame of his burgeoning sexuality. Eight year old Mustard, convinced his father is alive somewhere in Horneville, is determined to find him. Gina Donaldson, nurse at Horneville hospital, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a shadow in her own lifeâ&#x20AC;?, taught by her alcoholic father and suicidal mother to repress emotion and eschew hope. However her protective â&#x20AC;&#x153;cool absenceâ&#x20AC;? starts to fray as staff and patients are trapped

for days while the water rises, the power fails and the hospital sinks into chaos. When help fails to arrive she is forced to make a horrifying decision. Heymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth novel is inspired by events surrounding the floods in Queensland and the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans. It is a richly layered book with complex and convincing characters, exploring familial breakdown, the nuances of faith, hope and belief and the struggle between our moral and immoral selves in the midst of chaos. Despite the bleak subject matter it is ultimately redemptive and darkly humorous. In particular Heyman is unflinching in her satirical portrayal of NuDay and its mutation from â&#x20AC;&#x153;something true and fresh and goodâ&#x20AC;? into a disquieting blend of church and commerce, with Jesus Super-Hero dolls, Shop for Je-

SATISFYING: Floodline by Kathryn Heyman.

sus T-shirts and its â&#x20AC;&#x153;NuDay Face for Jesus Make-Up rangeâ&#x20AC;?. The two stories of Mikey and Gina almost read like separate novels and it is only towards the end that they finally connect in what is ultimately a satirical and satisfying novel. - Vanessa Hughes

Open for culture It was no surprise to see a range of reactions when the Bendigo Weekly revealed plans last week for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first mosque. A number of what can only be described as fringe lunatics from outside Bendigo tried their best to upset the apple cart, mostly on facebook. The good news is that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. An opposition facebook page, mostly made up of locals, quickly muted any significant damage or influence. The Bendigo Weekly decided this week to show Bendigo for what it really is. Bendigo is not a nasty, antianything community. It is inclusive, welcoming and compassionate. The experiences of Selemani Opece Ndikumana and Irakoze Nurah and their family are proof of that.

WORSHIP AND MORE: The mosque is expected to be used by many members of the Bendigo community.


Since coming to Bendigo in 2008, they have received nothing but support. Selemani said the people of Bendigo have been kind and generous to him and his family. This has to be celebrated. Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population will always be predominantly made up of those with an Anglo European heritage.

That is our history and our culture and traditions reflect that, and always will. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders, be they politicians, councillors, senior business or community leaders, will also be dominated by that demographic. But times are changing. It will only be a matter of time before someone born outside Australia becomes mayor, or the Member for Bendigo West. Rather than criticising or dreading it, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrate it. The Chinese brought a wealth of history and culture to Bendigo during the Goldrush, and we treated them poorly. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not make the same mistakes again. The experiences of Selemani and Irakoze and their family prove that Bendigo is an open place. It is open for business, open for culture, open for all.


Shooting the messenger




IT has been quite disturbing to read some recent press releases about Detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles from the homicide squad regarding his presentation at The Blokes Biggest Lunch in Bendigo back in November. As the organiser of that event I am really disappointed with the criticism of Ron who gave an unbelievable presentation of the consequence of things that can go wrong if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look after our mates. That was the message that was being conveyed on the day and certain sections of the media and people of public profile have completely taken his talk out of context. Before the presentation Ron was at pains to say that certain parts of his presentation were quite graphic and confronting and some may wish to look away. He said some of the photos to be shown had already been in the public domain. As the organiser I still have had not one complaint from those who attended and to my knowledge donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that anyone from Bendigo has objected. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure where this criti-

cism has come from and it seems to me that someone or others maybe have another agenda because I have had nothing but praise for having organised Ron to speak at our event. I have had just so much support for our event and Ron with several guests asking that I get Ron back again this year. As a society I believe that we owe Ron a debt of gratitude for the

family supports Ronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message should be enough to acknowledge the very strong message that Ron delivers. The presentation was not solely about the Jill Meagher case but there were several others but nobody is talking about them? I can deeply sympathise with the affected families and it must be horrendous for them all but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

I applaud you and I am so sorry that our event has caused you so much anguish amazing work that he does not only protecting us but can you imagine being involved in more than 300 homicides he is owed our thanks, not criticisms from certain sections The other thing that is lost in all of this is that Ron attended our event without any fee or payment because he feels itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important getting the message out to as many people as possible. That message is the importance of protecting mates and reporting things when people are at their wits end. Also the fact that Jill Meagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

not forget the message on the day and acknowledge that we all have a role to play in looking after others To Ron I applaud you and I am so sorry that our event has caused you so much anguish as it is not deserved and the sections of the media that are still carrying on should come clean as to what their motives are. As a society we should be totally indebted to Ron and his work and should be supporting him not trying to drag him down. Keith Sutherland is a board member of Bendigo Publishing.

More to Bendigo than tourism Based on constant media coverage, Greater Bendigo council City Futures director stan Liacos’ exaggerated claims, and council’s generous financial support, you might get the impression that tourism is the key driver of the local economy. It is not. Ratepayers should be aware of a few details. Based on available 2011 data, Greater Bendigo has 18 industry sectors. Tourism is one sector; other sectors include agriculture, finance and manufacturing. While tourism has a role to play, it only makes up four per cent of Greater Bendigo’s economic activity or approximately $400 million and employs about 1600 people. Oddly, council provides a near $10 million net pro-rata recurrent and capital annual ratepayer subsidy support to tourism and related services. That money is primarily accounted for through council based wages, marketing and promotion via the City Futures directorate. Unfortunately, council fails to apply any realistic and public cost benefit analysis to that $10 million spend, preferring to rely on glamour and glossy projects to justify its spending. By comparison the 17 non-tourism industry sectors combined earn over $9 billion or 96 per cent of the city’s economic activity, and employs about 36,000 workers, yet receives a small ratepayer support of about $2.5 million. an open-minded person couldn’t help but conclude that council’s backing for the 17 non-tourism sectors is trivial and completely out of balance.

support for tourism is unrealistically out of proportion to its contribution to our economy. Imagine the social, cultural, employment, economic and environmental benefits if the other 17 sectors received the $10 million and marketing support. If council adopts the recommendations of the Independent Review that seeks to redress this imbalance and looks for savings within the City Futures directorate, then the council will rid ratepayers of waste, put realism and rigour back into its public claims and better serve its residents. Michael McKenzie, Bendigo

Freedom of religious beliefs InCLUsIve or exclusive? I wonder? Where is the morality? and what of ideals? and what of the proclamations of inclusivity, diversity and vitality that Greater Bendigo council and our community expresses? Why do we accept and even welcome the extremes of Christendom yet deny in our exclusivity the practice of another spiritual/religious persuasion equally based on a belief of love and the good nature of mankind ? Religiosity belongs to all creeds. Forget notions of objections based on “planning grounds”. If the council believes in inclusivity and diversity, then to even contemplate to deny “others” their practices is surely the epitome of hypocrisy and even racist and bigoted? surely, we should rather welcome, and learn than fear and exclude?

weekly words with Steve Kendall

Scrambling for room It seems the breed of hens Mrs Kendall chose have a leaning towards extra large

dear dotty... Dear Dotty, For some time now my husband has refused to shave and I have noticed that whenever the moon is full he goes out into the backyard and starts howling. Why do you think he is doing this? Deeply concerned, Edwina Dear Edwina, He has turned into a wolf – pretty obvious I would have thought.


HAVE an accommodation problem. As I have mentioned, the long-suffering Mrs Kendall has bought some hens. The chickens in question are lacewing wyandottes, pretty birds with an ultimate size in the large range. As it was all done in a bit of a hurry I ended up buying a coop rather than building one, and bought one for four to six hens. Flat pack unpacked, I built the rather flimsy house and let the pullets move in. They seemed to like their cosy house as youngsters, and went about their chicken-like activities with gusto. Fast forward a few weeks and they have grown somewhat. The poor girls squeeze in and out of the hatch, complain at dawn to get out and spend the whole day picking at food around the yard. They are growing daily and I feel the coop is nearing the end of its useful life. The birds have been an

absolute joy to have, and they are not even producing eggs yet. They clutter around and cluck and peck. They drink water from the cats’ bowl at the same time as the cats, see the kelpie off with his tail between his legs if he strays too close, and generally have a good free range. Of course I can’t let this go on, extension plans are in the pipeline. I am actually looking forward to the project. Being chickens, I won’t have to worry too much about the plans, but no doubt I will have to have a permit from the fund-raising council.

It’s going to be a monster. I have a great pile of wooden pallets from the house build, and they will be providing the wood for the coop. I will keep the existing structure as a grand entrance, passing through to a hen palace beyond. The thing is, chickens have pretty simple tastes, and all I will need to provide is roosts and nesting boxes, ventilation and a nice sturdy wall to keep Mr and Mrs Foxy out. I have no doubt Mrs K will have more birds as time moves along, so I must plan for flock expansion too.

The way our girls are going, I’d better strengthen the floor as well. There is a danger of overdoing it of course, and if I am not careful I will find myself building verandahs and private rooms for our soon to be deliverers of eggs. I wonder if the little darlings fancy a jacuzzi? What I am really looking forward to though is the eggs they produce. The way things are heading, I reckon the eggs will be a meal in themselves, though I might have to use a coffee mug as an egg cup. twitter: @stevekendall1

Dear Dotty, I have terrible trouble staying awake at work, especially during meetings. Any tips? Simon Dear Simon, One posture I’ve always been fond of is to prop your head in your hands, covering your eyes as if you are intensely concentrating. This allows you to actually fall asleep without being seen. Alternatively ask for someone to ring your mobile, when you answer the call stand up and call out in horror, “Oh my God, my house has just been burnt to the ground!” or “Oh my God, my wife has just run off with Brynne Edelsten and cleaned out our account. You can only use this latter technique once. Dear Dotty, I am a senior citizen type

Every time I go some little poppet always looks at the finished product – me with short grey and wrinkles hair and asks me if I’m going anywhere special tonight? For some reason, it really annoys me. Where do they think I’m going to go in Bendigo on a Tuesday night with my short back and sides? Marion, Maldon Dear Marion, Shock tactics are called for here.

Culinary questions

Back to Mexico

with Jody and Brent Loam of the Willow Room, Heathcote


HE secret to a home made Mexican fiesta is to make sure you have an array of accompaniments. A bit of tomato, lime juice and coriander is all you need for a fresh salsa. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered flinging that together, Bendigo Wholefoods has some great salsas. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also worth having a couple of Mexican sauces available for those who want to increase the fire factor. For moderately less food miles, the Byron Bay Chilli Co Mango Chilli Sauce is great, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon find yourself putting it on more than mexican. For a genuine touch make sure your pantry includes Salsa Picante de Chile Habanero and Picante Roja de Chile Habenero - the red and green sauces. Need even more fire? Bendigo Wholefoods also have fresh JalapeĂąo chillis. Of course, there has to be guacamole. There are some fabulous local-ish avocados available now, or stock up on them at the next Bendigo Community Farmers Market. Another option for avocados that I must get around to organising next year is Barham Avocados ( subscription. Their season is now finished and will recommence in June. Signing up to the subscription can see a box of avocados arriving at your door each month for the season, how amazing would that be, and what a wonderful way to support farmers. While I usually just combine avocados, red onion, lime juice and coriander for my guacamole you can really make it sing by adding a specially curated guacamole mix. Bendigo Wholefoods has the Herbies guacamole mix.

Q. How do you make natural yoghurt? A. Making natural yoghurt is quite an easy process but does require some attention and patience. First of all start by making sure all your equipment and utensils are clean and sanitised. Bring three litres of full cream milk to the boil then gently simmer and reduce by a third, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rapidly boil. This ensures any bad bacteria is removed. Take off the heat and let the milk temperature drop to about 39C. When at this temperature you need to add 500 grams of another batch of natural yoghurt. This adds the bacteria into the milk that will break down the lactose. Strain the mixture into a clean container, cover with cling film and leave for 24 hours in a slightly warm spot. After 24 hours the mixture should be thickened and sour. Strain this into clean containers and chill before using.

ADDED SPICE: The flavour of Mexico is hot, hot, hot.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great one from Gewirshaus, the fabulous spice shop in Lygon Street. Now really that should be enough but to up the vegetable intake on a summer evening, include some grilled corn in your Mexican spread. If you are like me you will never be able to perfect it tasting as good as the versions served at Wahaca (London) and Mamasita (Bourke Street, Melbourne). However, it is pretty easy to cobble together something similar by grilling corn on the barbie, then dressing with some mayonnaise with chillis added, some finely shredded parmesan cheese, some cayenne and a squeeze of lime. In a cross-cultural fusion I find the kewpie mayonnaise works a treat for this when you add

some habenero chillis you have soaked for about 20 minutes. The final touch of food fossicking to be added to this, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted with Corona â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the local Brookes Pale Ale goes a treat with Mexican. Hope you soon find cooking Mexican style a lot of fun, just make sure you still head to the Mexican Kitchen every now and again as well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we all carry that secret love for those fajitas.

Q. What is suet? A. If anyone made their own Christmas puddings last year you probably added suet that was found in the flour aisle at the supermarket. Real suet is actually beef or mutton fat, usually a hard white fat found around the animals organs. Ask your local butcher for some the next time you make a pie and use the suet to make the best pie pastry. I use suet, self raising flour, iced cold water and salt.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on offer at the farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market T

HE district has a growing number of farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets on offer, full of fresh and delicious local produce. Here are this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selections: Heathcote Regonal Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market Stalls such as local pork from McIvor Farm Foods; beef from Warialda Belted Galloways; award winning handmade cheese from Locheilan Farmhouse Cheeses and Godfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmhouse Cheese; walnuts from Redesdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boonderoo Co; local Heathcote Region wines and olives; fresh fruit and veggies; heritage vegetable seedlings; flowers; honey; sourdough bread; a diverse range of preserves, jams, sauce, relish, mustards, pies, cakes, biscuits, sweet treats, take-home foods and many more.

Q. What can you do with excess egg whites?

Koondrook Barham Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market Set on the banks of the Murray River among the wonderful river red gums and next to the historic bridge, this is one of White Hatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market locations in Victoria. Local produce is central and the atmosphere peaceful.

A. Egg whites can actually be frozen and then used later. If you are making something that needs whisked egg whites like a pavlova or meringue, frozen egg whites work just as good if not better. You can also make biscotti, amoretti biscuits or some of the best summer cocktails like a aperol or pisco sour use egg whites.

9am to 1pm, third Sunday of the month. Cnr Murray Pde and Grigg Rd, Koondrook. Enquiries: 5453 2392.

The creek revisited


HE outback may seem a long way from Strathfieldsaye, but Bendigo film director Greg Mclean has certainly made his mark in the red centre. A mention of the film Wolf Creek is enough to set pulses racing and question if you’ll ever travel again, but Mr Mclean who grew up in Emu Creek has done it all again, with Wolf Creek 2 set for release in February. He spent his formative years going to Eppalock Primary, Marist Brothers High School then Bendigo TAFE college where he studied Art and Design. Mr Mclean has family and friends in town and visits a few times a year. “It has changed a lot over the years but you always have a special affinity to where you come from I think, for me that’s Bendigo,” he said. Mr Mclean said he was always in love with movies and a few really affected him early on. He spent about 10 years training and working around the industry before he made Wolf Creek in 2005. “From there I’ve been working steadily making my second movie in 2007, Rogue, and I’ve been writing and producing while

setting up my next directing project – which turned out to be Wolf Creek 2,” he said. Mr Mclean travelled with Wolf Creek to Sundance Film Festival in the United States and then Cannes Film Festival in France. “It was pretty eye opening for a first time filmmaker,” he said. “Screening Wolf Creek 2 at Venice was amazing and having two Wolf Creek novels published by a major publisher is something I’d never have guessed would happen.” Mr Mclean has been working on Wolf Creek 2 among a variety of other projects over the past couple of years. “I’m really proud of the finished movie and can’t wait till it hits screens. It’s the best one I’ve made so far,” he said. As film characters go, Mick Taylor takes some beating. John Jarratt brings the character to life with some very fixed views. Mr Mclean has nothing but praise for him. “He has a wealth of experience and knowledge – he’s lived a very full life and still has enormous amounts of enthusiasm for what he does,” he said.

“He really loves acting and filmmaking and so it’s great collaborating with someone who shares that kind of passion. “He’s the total opposite of the character he plays.” Wolf Creek has become part of Australian movie folklore, with Wolf Creek 2 set to follow. Is there a future for Mick Taylor? “It really depends upon how Wolf Creek 2 does,” Mr McLean said. “If people respond to this movie in a similar way to the first one then I’d be up for it. “I know John Jarratt is keen and we enjoy working together. We’ll have to wait and see.” – Full story at

They have arrived M

UCH anticipated was the arrival of the special train which brought the officers and sailors of the Great White Fleet to Bendigo. September 2, 1908 was considered to be a red letter day for the citizens of Bendigo and district. Nothing in the organisation of the welcome, procession and catering had been left to chance. As I mentioned three months ago, the locomotive of the special train had been specifically decorated and was emblazoned on its front â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome Uncle Sam to the Golden City of Bendigoâ&#x20AC;?. Bunting and flags along with evergreens decorated the sides and top of the iron horse. It was a Wednesday and the weather was relatively mild, which augured well for the reception of the guests. Mayor John Paul Carolin was along with other local dignitaries on the platform, awaiting the arrival of the train. Mr Carolin welcomed the officer in charge, A Morrison, and introduced him to the hand-picked reception invitees. The sailors alighted from the carriages and quickly formed in ranks for inspection. The 280 men all told with 32 officers were ready to march outside the station confines. Already assembled outside were the various groups that made up the procession. Leading off was the 2nd Battalion 8th Australian Infantry band, following immediately behind was the men of the 2nd Australian Infantry Regiment, under the command of Major CH Davis, the emu feathers on their slouch hats

waving in the breeze. Next came the 2nd Battalion Senior Cadet Band along with the 2nd Senior Cadet Regiment under the command of well known Bendigonian Captain TR Henderson, boots and brass all glinted brightly. Massed bands were to follow next in line, the sound of brass carried through the streets and sent a thrill of excitement to the many lined up along the route. Wearing their smart naval uniforms which seemed hardly creased after the train journey from Melbourne, the officers marched briskly. As the men passed, the crowds along the roadway along Mitchell Street cheered loudly and clapped vigorously. All of the members of the American Fleet Welcome Committee followed along with Borough, Shire and Bendigo councillors. Mayoral and presidential robes were the order of the day. Decked out in full uniform, officers and volunteers of the Bendigo and District Fire Brigades marched immediately behind the civic representatives. The entire procession made a stirring sight. The length of the procession was considerable and among the cacophony of sound the peal of the bells of St Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church could be heard. They crossed Hargreaves Street, marched into Charing Cross, the Alexandra Fountain was on their left as then up the View Street hill to the Upper Reserve, as the Queen Elizabeth Oval was then called. A significant number of school

children attended and they lustily sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Star Spangled Bannerâ&#x20AC;? after the officers of the Fleet were introduced to the Militia and Cadets. Children then sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;God save the Kingâ&#x20AC;? followed by the massed bands then playing the same. Led by the massed bands, the officers and sailors marched to the town hall, where lunch was

served, loyalty toasts were drunk to the King, and to the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; President. Prior to the procession, the Bendigo Tramways ran a five minute service and special trains brought thousands of visitors from surrounding areas. Trams ceased running on the Eaglehawk and Quarry Hill lines during the procession.

MONG the rich history of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, one particular photograph depicts the faith and solidarity of the Catholic community. Spanish influenza was bought back to Australia by soldiers in World War I and took over from the carnage, killing 3500 people in Victoria. As a result regulations issued by the government prohibited people from gathering inside buildings. This photo taken in 1919 shows Bishop McCarthy saying Mass outside the Cathedral. One of the priests, Fr Simeon Doyle, died as a result of the epidemic. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dianne Dempsey.

Ice-blocks can be helpful to get your pets through the day if you are not home. Give extra water containers just in case they get knocked over. Going on walks or being put on the back of a Ute in such extreme heat can burn the pads on dogs paws so if you can’t stand bare foot then they probably can’t either.

tackling the tour By JOEL PETERSON

it came down to a climbersuited race,” the netApp-endura rider said. “i had good legs and felt strong, but i cramped on the final climb. i tried a few attacks early on, but i was able to push through it to finish ninth.” Mullens, who is among a number of local Women racing in the santos Women’s Cup during the Tour down Under, and dempster will both head overseas for camps with their respective teams this month. The Tour down Under represents the UCi World Tour debut for Haig, who will ride with the Uni-sA team, much to the delight of Avanti team manager steve Price. “Competing as part of the Uni-sA team in the Tour down Under is yet another opportunity for our riders to show the world what they can do,” Price said. “our program provides a clear pathway to the top echelons of the sport and this shows to us that Cycling Australia recognise and value

Bendigo’s darren Lapthorne, Robbie Hucker and Jack Haig will look to build on solid form from the Cycling Australia Road national Championships this weekend, when they attack the santos Tour down Under on sunday. Lapthorne and Haig contributed to one of Bendigo’s most successful national championship weekends. Haig placed sixth in the under-23 individual time trial before coming ninth in the road race, taken out by gun orica greenedge sprinter Caleb ewan. Bendigo’s sam Crome also enjoyed a successful road race, finishing 14th, 27 seconds behind ewan. Peta Mullens also enjoyed a solid lead up to her first full time season on the road with her Wiggle Honda team, placing 15th in the Women’s road race. However, it was the criterium where Mullens excelled, earning the silver medal for her efforts, while

Bendigo’s Beth duryea was 11th and Kate Finegan 18th, in a race marred with multiple crashes. “(The crashes) left the race wide open for me,” Mullens said. “As a one-out rider i knew i had to stay out of trouble and look after myself for a hopeful and potential sprint finish, so i watched the moves and rode myself into position in the final few laps. “i let sarah get the jump on me and we both pushed the wind the whole straight but she was just too strong.” Lapthorne was the highest Bendigo-based finisher in the elite men’s road race in sixth, while Zak dempster was ninth, and Lachlan norris (18th) and Robbie Hucker (26th) also recorded solid results. dempster said it was a tough race, and the strength of eventual winner simon gerrans and podium-placegetters Cadel evans and Richie Porte won the day. “it was a really hard, hot race. As you can see from the first three riders over the line

team’s debut race since being upgraded to Pro-Continental status. The six-stage race be-

gins with a city prologue on sunday, before stage one on Tuesday, a 135km test from nuriootpa to Angaston.


West Bendigo takes the top spot An unbeaten 128 from Matt dwyer and a brilliant bowling performance from dale Warren has vaulted West Bendigo to the top of the emu Valley Cricket Association table ahead of round nine matches getting under way this weekend. dwyer played a lone hand in the Redbacks amassing a total of 2/218 in reply to Axe Creek’s 8/197, coming in at 1/15 and never looking back. Warren took 4/22 from his seven overs for Wests as the hosts struggled to put together partnerships. number eight Charles Ready top scored for the Cowboys with 75. Ken Bell contributed a handy 39 not out and Boe Bish made 32 when the visitors went to the crease, to allow the Redbacks to leapfrog United and Marong to the top of the standings. United, meanwhile, suffered only its second loss of the season at the hands of reigning premier emu Creek. The tigers vaunted batting lineup struggled its way to only 117, Andrew Collins and Josh White the only two batsmen to get among the runs with 45 and 21 respectively. Anthony Collins destroyed the United batting order, taking a damaging 4/11 from his 7.2 overs. Tigers’ Andrew gaul claimed three wickets to be United’s best with the ball when it came time for the

emus to bat. The hosts passed the target easily, skipper daniel Chamberlain (40), Tim Hobbs (30) and Tyrone downie (24) forming a solid foundation on which the emus were able to build a comfortable win. At Pearce Reserve, Marong’s early season form did not translate to a win as the Panthers went down to Mandurang. Marong batted first but were able to capitalise at the top of the order with star opener scott Ross and dylan Tonkin both dismissed for three to leave the Panthers at 2/16. Jeremy Ross (29) and Rob Murphy (41) put on 41 for the fourth wicket, but an even bowling performance from the Rangas restricted Marong to 166. Unlike Marong, Mandurang were able to get their innings off to the right start, Matt giri (94) and Phil Berry (82) smashing their way to a first-wicket partnership of 143 as the home side rocketed to a total of 3/205. Maiden gully’s sputtering top order was again unable to fire against sedgwick at Club Court, as the Rams claimed an easy victory. Batting first, sedgwick made 8/238 from their 40 overs, led by damian Coppock (67) and greg Burns (58 not out), while Brett Haw took 3/44 for the gully. opener Mark gorrie

made 36 to get the visitors’ innings off to the right start, but the gully collapsed thereafter, Marc Brownlee providing the only middle order resistance with 58. The bowling of scott McKenzie was the difference for the Rams, taking 5/31 to restrict Maiden gully to 189. An even performance from golden gully with both bat and ball led golden gully to a comfortable

win over spring gully at Cal gully oval. Four of the Cobras’ bowlers took two wickets apiece in holding the Crows to 150, daniel Bowles (40) the best with the bat for spring gully. The early play of Jeremy Rogerson (48) and 41 from nathan Hamblin gave the Cobras momentum when it was their turn and they did not relinquish it, making 8/229 off their 40 overs.

Quench the Fire

Spirit’s added height puts them in top spot to topple Townsville on back of season’s only loss By JOEL PETERSON

BENDIGO Spirit coach Bernie Harrower believes his team has never been better equipped to stop two-time reigning Women’s National Basketball League Most Valuable Player Suzy Batkovic, ahead of the Spirit’s clash against Townsville on Saturday. Batkovic has been in red-hot form recently, winning the WNBL’s player of the month award for December, and has long presented a match-up problem for the Spirit. Bendigo have always played the Opals star well, but Harrower believes with the addition of Elyse Penaluna this season, Bendigo is in a better position than ever to mix in on the inside with the 193cm Batkovic. “I think we are better equipped, with the extra height we’ve got this year we can weather the storm

against the bigger teams in the league,” he said. “I think we defend bigs as well as any team, and we did a good job on her the first time we played them. “I think it’s important not only to even the season series with them, but to beat teams you might have to come up against in the finals, and to ensure we can keep

well as fellow top-four sides Dandenong and Melbourne. “We really have to make up for that first time we played them, we went up there and they embarrassed us,” Harrower said. “I’m not putting too much thought into that first game, we are a vastly different side from that game. “We were all over the

With the extra height we’ve got this year we can weather the storm that fortress-like atmosphere we have at home going.” Townsville are the only team to beat Bendigo this season, in Townsville in round one, before the Spirit ripped off its current 16game win streak. Evening the season series with the Fire is a key for Harrower’s side, especially considering it still has to match up with the Fire again, as

place that night, and they played really well and we have to make up for that. “That night we struggled to find anybody, now we struggle to fit everyone into the rotation, which shows how much we have improved since then.” Bendigo’s clash with Townsville tips off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon at Bendigo Stadium.
