Bendigo Weekly – Thursday, April 17, 2014

IN the heart of Bendigo’s CBD, the commercial “Golden Key� building is up for sale. The 20th Century, red brick property cornering Hargreaves and Mitchell streets will go to auction on May 2 at 11am onsite. The property will go under the hammer for the first time in 50 years, stirring interest from investors. Tweed Sutherland First National agent Tom Harrop said the property had significant future potential. “It has a prime position in the CBD, and a very high profile with pedestrian and vehicle traffic passing,� he said. Mr Harrop said the building was currently under-utilised paving the way for potential development. He said the first-floor could be used for an office space or as a residential conversion, subject to council approval. The separate tenants will remain in the building including the long-standing Colliers. *****************************

SIMONDS has teamed up with Strathfieldsaye Football Club to bring some comfort to the home side’s coaching box. Major sponsor of the Storm, Simonds has given the club a new air conditioned, lockable and roomy space to run their plays.

AUCTION: The building is for sale for the first time in 50 years.

The coaching box is a big upgrade for the home’s facilities. Simonds regional sales manager Nick Ellis said it was a fantastic new space. “It was built with the support of local trades people,� he said. “It gives the club a bit of storage and gives the coaches a better idea of the match as they are sitting up higher. “The Bendigo league is getting very, very strong.� Haymes Paint, Buildsafe,

Merger causes row

By ANTHONY RADFORD

THE battle lines over the future of Bendigo TAFE have been drawn. The Bendigo Weekly revealed on Friday that Bendigo TAFE was negotiating a merger with Kangan Institute. That story saw political and community leaders begin to take sides. Labor’s three local parliamentarians attacked the State Government over its handling of TAFE funding. Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan urged Greater Bendigo council and the community to oppose what she sees as a “takeover”. “I believe in Bendigo and its institutions. Bendigo TAFE and the School of Mines have been around for 160 years. We can’t allow Denis Napthine’s TAFE cuts to see the loss of our own TAFE that provides

training for local students and businesses,” Ms Allan said. “Denis Napthine’s $1.2 billion TAFE cuts have forced discussions behind closed doors for a Bendigo take over by a Melbourne based TAFE. “The Bendigo community has

Mallee region,” he said. “The City of Greater Bendigo trusts the Bendigo TAFE board of directors will act in the best interests of the community that it serves.” Current Bendigo Citizen of the Year Gordon McKern disagreed, coming out in favour of the merger.

I strongly support the concept of a merger with Kangan, and I offer my congratulations not been privy to these discussions, nor consulted about the impact of losing its own TAFE institute.” Ms Edwards said she would seek an urgent meeting with council to discuss the merger. Council chief executive officer Craig Niemann said it was a matter for the TAFE. “Bendigo TAFE is an important education provider in the Loddon

“I strongly support the concept of a merger with Kangan, and I offer my congratulations to board chair Margaret O`Rourke, and chief executive officer Peter Coyne, for taking the initiative,” he said. “An important issue to be faced by those who may feel disposed to raising objections to this possible merger, is that there is a major difference between the TAFE system of

today, compared to what it was during my time, and that difference is competition. “In those days we enjoyed a monopoly in vocational training, nowadays decisions by state governments of both persuasions, have created an industry of private providers, with whom our TAFE college, and all the others in the state, need to compete with for market share. Who can argue with that?” Federal Member for Bendigo Lisa Chesters echoed, literally, Ms Allan’s claims, and spoke about the issue during a federal Standing Committee on Education and Employment when it sat in Bendigo yesterday. “Denis Napthine’s $1.2 billion TAFE cuts have forced Bendigo to consider a takeover by a Melbourne-based TAFE behind closed doors,” she said.

“It is yet another policy decision where State Government funding is being cut from regional communities. “The Bendigo community has not been privy to these discussions, nor consulted about the impact of losing its own TAFE institute. “The result of increased fees will be fewer students pursuing vocational education and therefore, fewer skilled workers to drive our local economy.”

Planning on council agenda

PARK PRACTICE: Joanne, Steve, Owen, Laura and Leo Hams are getting ready for the Mothers Day Classic. Photo: BILL CONROY

Family runs for Mother’s Day Classic Taking part in the Mother’s Day Classic is straightforward, people can run eight or four kilometres or walk four. The Mother’s Day Classic takes place on Sunday, May 11 from 8am for runners or 9am for the 4km events. Details and registration at www. mothersdayclassic.com.au/event/vic/bendigo-vic If you don’t want to walk or run, you can come along and support all taking s mjoin in the entertainment and part and at ic s around the course. activity taking place s i g m a nu

“They know it’s important to find a cure.” The family is also backing the event because a family friend lost his wife to breast cancer. One in eight women in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and more than half of all breast cancers in Australia are discovered by the woman herself or her own doctor. Early detection saves lives – the earlier a cancer is discovered, the greater the chances of successful treatment. sm at ics m s i g m a nu

THE Hams Family of Strathfieldsaye is out in force for the Mother’s Day Classic on May 11. Dad Steve, mum Joanne and children Laura, Owen and Leo will be out in pink for the cause. Steve and the children will be making the run, but Joanne will be taking a walk instead. “We have done it a couple of times,” Mrs Hams said. “The children enjoy taking part, and they know they are supporting the cause by running.

COUNCIL considered a number of significant planning and development proposals at last night’s meeting. Councillors were recommended to approve a 22 dwelling subdivision in Kangaroo Flat. The High Street subdivision features a two-storey building home to 14 onebedroom apartments, four two-storey attached and four three-storey attached dwellings. The planning department recommended it for approval, believed to be inline with the neighbourhood character. “The site is in an excellent location to provide new housing in terms of accessibility to employment opportunities, leisure and shopping facilities and public transport,” the council report said. The report said the development would cater to the increasing demand for diverse, affordable housing options in the city. Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-Operative’s plans for a community centre were also recommended for approval. Council considered the proposal for a cafeteria, place

of assembly, health services and childcare centre to be used by the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community. The Prouses Road development in North Bendigo was recommended for approval as it has an “acceptable urban design and planning outcome”. But, an Edward Street subdivision was been recommended for refusal, failing to adhere to council’s heritage overlay policy. Council considered the construction of a three-storey building, subdivision of land into two lots and the partial demolition last night. “Although mixed use development is encouraged within the Bendigo CBD, the design proposed does not appropriately incorporate the existing red brick stables on site which are of heritage significance,” the report said. “The current design will have a negative impact on the heritage values of the existing heritage buildings both on site and the adjoining lot and the impact cannot be reduced to a reasonable level.” For the full details on last night’s meeting, visit www. bendigoweekly.com.au. - Christine McGinn

Station plan for Epsom revealed

Homes and businesses to extend CBD to hospital precinct

Bridge Street boom BRIDGE Street will become two-lane and will include apartment buildings up to fivestoreys high under a plan that went before Greater Bendigo council this week. Council voted to put the Draft Hospital Precinct Structure Plan for public comment. The plan calls for the extension of the CBD to Bridge St and the new hospital. It calls for higher density commercial and residential developments along Bridge St, mostly three or four storeys. However, the report calls for four to five-storey developments on the intersection of Water St and Arnold St, as well as further up Water St to Barnard St, behind Coliban Water. The report also calls for an Arnold Street Hill Village area on the corner of Arnold and Michelsen and Bannister streets, as well as medium

Bridge St bridge, as well as the undergrounding of powerlines around the entire precinct. Significant tree planting around the entire hospital precinct is also planned, including the establishment of a series of

pocket parks in nearby streets. Council Strategy manager Trevor Budge said implementation of the Structure Plan would take about 25 to 30 years. “The new Bendigo hospital is a once-in-a-generation public healthcare investment that will have a long-term impact on residents, the economy and physical layout of the city,” he said. “The draft plan is an evolution of the Concept Structure Plan, which residents, the project Steering Group and Reference Group advised and informed. “It features 24 strategic directions and the implementation of any actions would be done with the involvement of other agencies and landowners.” The draft plan will be released for public comment for a minimum of four weeks.

EPSOM railway station is on track with plans for the new station revealed this week. Public Transport and Roads Minister Terry Mulder assured locals plans were drawn and that modifications at Eaglehawk station also had the green light. “The Victorian Government has invested $7.76 million to build a new station at Epsom and make modifications to infrastructure at Eaglehawk to facilitate an increase in services to the station,” he said. Mr Mulder said works at both stations would start “in the coming months” and improve local public transport. Ducon Pty Ltd won the design and construction contract to build Epsom’s new stop. Despite the overdue release of the plans, Mr Mulder said the detailed preliminary and signalling design ensured the site would be shovel-ready. “Following last year’s site investigations, the project team completed additional preliminary design work to in-

The foundation will support the work involved in preserving Bendigo’s most significant heritage sites and will allow for a number of projects to be pursued that otherwise wouldn’t. Support can also be given to the Bendigo Trust Foundation in the form of a donation or a will bequest.

crease the amount of car parking spaces to 100, therefore providing an additional 40 spaces for Epsom Station users,” he said. Liberal Party Bendigo West candidate Jack Lyons said the station would provide residents with an alternative mode of transport. Four trains will run each weekday from the Epsom station, located on the Echuca line. Liberal Party Bendigo East candidate Greg Bickley said the Eaglehawk station would benefit from a new Disability Discrimination Act compliant ramp and a new drivers access pathway. Mr Mulder also visited the Calder Freeway and Calder Alternate intersection at Ravenswood this week to alert residents that the site would become a hive of activity. “There is going to be a huge amount of work including contractors here carrying our surveys, tenderers who are here looking at the project,” he said. Liberal patron Senator for Bendigo Michael Ronaldson said the government was committed to the “fully-funded” project. Mr Mulder said they would award a contract prior to Christmas with work to start early next year and completed in 2017. Mr Mulder also urged drivers to take care, especially at Ravenswood.

Greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons this week launched the book Bendigo Through Time written by Mike Butcher and Yolande Collins, with photography by Richard Gibbs,. The book offers a fascinating insight into the history of Bendigo’s architecture.

Bid to clear names

By ANTHONY RADFORD

GREATER Bendigo councillor Elise Chapman is calling for council to open up its books to the public about the Amicus controversy. A complaint was made against Cr Chapman and Cr Helen Leach in March last year following a public event in Hargreaves Mall. An independent panel handed down a finding of misconduct against then-mayor Cr Lisa Ruffell, criticising her handling of the complaint. Cr Ruffell is appealing the decision, with a directions hearing heard before the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribu-

nal on Monday. Cr Chapman has asked the council to open itself up to the public about the matter through an independent investigation into the original

ings into the entire Amicus matter, from the date of the Amicus complaint to this day,” she said. “I have taken this action in my own right as an individual

Neither Helen Leach or myself have done anything wrong complaint. “In an effort to clear my and Cr Leach’s names, and to improve council procedures, I have requested the mayor and council to authorise an independent investigation and make public find-

councillor. “Neither Helen Leach or myself have done anything wrong yet, more than a year after the Amicus allegations were made, there has been no satisfactory investigation that would enable us

to have our names cleared. “My request is for an investigation that would examine the actions of all people at the council who were involved in the handling of the Amicus complaint. “It also means following the paper trail to determine if fairness and impartiality was applied, and if Cr Leach and myself have been denied natural justice. I’d expect the investigation to come up with recommendations for actions that should be taken to rectify identified problems. “I expect the council to deal with the issue as the matter cannot be simply swept away.” Greater Bendigo council has refused to comment.

Highs and lows as Eppalock turns 50 HISTORICAL milestones are common at Lake Eppalock. There have been water delivery upgrades, significant embankment renovations and more. And today, April 17, the water storage reached another milestone – its 50th birthday. Goulburn-Murray Water Catchment Services general manager Graeme Hannan said the water storage was significant as it supplied irrigation and stock and domestic water to water users along the Campaspe River, the Campaspe Irrigation District, to the Goulburn system and urban supplies to Bendigo, Heathcote and more recently Ballarat. In addition, water entitlements in the Campapse system held by the Environmental Water Holders are stored at Lake Eppalock. “In years of plentiful water resources, water from Lake Eppalock is used to supplement the Waranga Western Channel to supply customers in the Rochester and PyramidBoort irrigation areas,” Mr Hannan said. Lake Eppalock’s history dates back to 1908 when the State Riv-

ers and Water Supply Commission first investigated the practicality of constructing a dam to impound 100,000 acre-feet of water. In 1930, another investigation was commenced to impound 60,000 acre-feet (74,000 ML) with a provision for an increase to 100,000 acre-feet (123,350 ML) capacity. Between that time and 1960 the scheme was investigated by Parliamentary Public Works Committees on three more occasions, with the committee finally concluding a storage of 250,000 acre-feet (308,000 ML) was possible. Work started immediately, but the dam wasn’t completed until 1964. Mr Hannan said the 1964 completion date was just the first milestone of many. “Since then we’ve reached many highs – like January 14, 2011 when water hit the highest level ever or when the second spillway first flowed in the same month,” he said. “Of course with highs come lows and on May 29, 2007 Lake Eppalock fell to just two per cent of capacity.’’

WEIR THERE’S A WAY: Eppalock has reached many milestones.

Police step up operations POLICE will be saturating the area this Easter weekend, to reduce dangerous driver behaviour. Two operations will run over Easter to reduce road trauma with a zero-tolerance approach to drugs, alcohol, speed, negligent driving and distractions. Bendigo Police Acting Senior Sergeant Peter Johnston said there would be a high-visibility police presence in Bendigo until April 27. “Extra resources have been rostered for both operations especially as Bendigo is a popular destination for tourists,” he said. “If you are out and about, expect to be breath-tested and see one of our members. “If you do the wrong thing, you will suffer the consequences.” Operation Soteria will run in two phases in the lead-up and winddown of the Easter celebrations. The first phase was completed earlier this week with the second phase running from April 22 to 27. The Australasian police operation, Crossroads, starts today and runs until Easter Monday, April 21. The annual operation is a joint initiative of Australian and New Zealand police forces to reduce road trauma. Acting Snr Sgt Johnston said the “gloves are off” after six Central Victorian deaths during the Labor Day long-weekend in March. “We suggest for people to enjoy themselves but don’t take the risk. Play it safe, have a designated driver, use taxis or other options,” he said. “If you do drive, the odds are you will be breath-tested.” Acting Snr Sgt Johnston said people are encouraged to safely enjoy the festivities. “It’s a festival period and we are not the fun police,” Act Snr Sgt Johnston said. “People should enjoy it in a safe environment and go home safely. “We don’t want anyone’s Easter ruined.”

THE woodturners are sharing their skills over Easter, and they would love to see you. For 24 years the skilled folk of Bendigo have been putting their talents to work and making things with their hands. Jeff Willey has been with the group for 16 years and turns his hands to most items in wood. At the moment he’s experi-

menting with pencil making. “It’s quite easy, but it does take some learning,” he said. At the expo there will be demonstrations of woodturning, scrollsawing, carving and pyrography. “We have a skilled group of about 100 members, aged from 11 to 88,” he said. “We have thousands of items for sale made by the group.”

Railroaders all set for a top show EASTER is a big weekend for fans of model railway, as the Bendigo Model Railroaders go full steam ahead. The enthusiasts are gearing up for a monster of a show at the Uniting Church Halls on Myer Street starting on Saturday. The event runs on Saturday from 9am to 5pm, Sunday from 11am to 5pm and Monday 9am to 4pm. The show costs around $6000 to put on, with 70 people involved and it’s all for the love of the track, and the

locomotives of course. BMR’s Peter Whitaker said some of the layouts on display will be seen for the first time at the show. “The scenery is superb,” he said. “A lot of work has gone into this and it shows. We have a Ballarat line, a Sunbury set up and an American display in US gauge. “The Ballarat set up has three trains running and it’s computer-controlled. I have written 9000 lines of code to make it run.”

The layouts run across three halls and railway parts worth more than $500,000 will be involved. “There is even a Lego Layout, “Mr Whitaker said. Entry is $8 for adults, children $3 with a family pass at $20. The Bendigo Weekly has two free family passes available for the first two people to call on Thursday morning before 11am on 5440 2500.

ROAD ART: Aaron Nicholls with his Mercedes. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN GLAZIER Aaron Nicholls is sure to turn a few heads at the Easter Parade this year. In a good-humoured but perhaps questionable gesture, he turned over his 1988 Mercedes 300SE to seven local schools to make their mark. Quarry Hill, Lockwood, Lockwood South, Spring Gully, Big Hill, Bridgewater and Eaglehawk students took pots in hand and add-

ed their art. “I just wanted to give the kids a go,� Mr Nicholls said. “I left it with each school for week, and let them loose. Apparently the car belonged to Eric Bana’s father at some point which gives it a bit of added oomph, but it will not go back to how it was. “It’s permanent,� Mr Nicholls said. “I just wanted a luxury

car, it makes a difference from my Hilux ute.� That’s a given, but Mr Nicholls is looking for some help at the Easter Parade. “Anyone who had a hand in painting it, or their parents are welcome to walk in the parade,� he said. “It will certainly add some colour.� Mr Nicholls is on 0416 014 996 if you’d like to step in to step out.

Drastic changes required Congratulations to greater Bendigo council strategic planners andrew Cockerill and trevor Budge who have presented us with a revised Bendigo residential Development strategy. this blueprint is up for discussion over the next two months and i would urge all residents to assess and evaluate the contents of the report. some of the more interesting findings are that we are not catering for the changing housing needs of the projected 57 per cent of population by 2031 that will be one or two person households. in 2011, only 27.5 per cent of households were couples with children but yet 90 per cent of recent dwellings were traditional family homes of three and four bedrooms. By 2031, the population will be 145,000 which means adding another 16,800 more homes, therefore we need to have a drastic re-think of the types of housing to be built. along with those changes we need to consider how we change our ingrained habits to waste disposal, sustainability and re-cycling. the community as we know it must change, but we must retain our heritage at all cost because that’s part of what makes Bendigo a great place to live and for tourists to visit. Full marks to council and the Heritage advisory Committee for the launch of their booklet Pioneers, Poppet heads and Prosperity which is now available from estate agents and council. the other aspects of council strategy is the discussion around housing development along transport corridors and to hopefully change the habits on the reliance of cars. of course with greenfield new housing developments, transport hasn’t caught up and residents have to rely on cars. another core area that has been highlighted are in-fill development and higher density around the CBD, hospital and university precincts. this is something that council has encouraged but i must say some have got through which i consider are inappropriate in certain heritage locations. With changes having to be implemented as a result of the findings of the Victorian Bushfire royal Commission and north Central Catchment Management authority’s Bendigo urban Flood study, changes have had to be made to future residential developments. this, of course, reduces the number of blocks available in the urban growth boundary. another interesting aspect of the

study is the highlighting of the health issues such as rising obesity in our community. it’s all very well having a well planned municipality but if our residents have health issues then that takes away the many attributes the community has to offer. summing up, we all now have the opportunity to have our say on this most comprehensive strategy and report back to council within two months, so let’s get on with its final recommendations. this is a blueprint for the next 10 years but will be reviewed every two years. Full marks to council, it’s officers and director Prue Mansfield for giving us the opportunity to plan our residential development for the future, but most of all changing direction from where we have been going. Keith Sutherland Director, Sutherland Property

Barnard not the answer i aPPreCiate that Daryl McClure is an “avid rosalind Park fan” but i find that his comments, in anthony radford’s article, that the “bus terminal and the expansion of BssC and the art gallery are illegal” are quite ridiculous. Could someone please let Mr McClure know that the year is 2014 and not 1850 and that the usage of public space needs to change with the times. i would also like to suggest that Mr McClure does not live on Barnard street when he suggests that the school buses could park in the aquatic Centre and Qeo service road. this concept is impractical as it would be dangerous to the lives of students and car drivers as well. one only has to observe the amount of traffic, including heavy trucks, that use Barnard st daily and particularly between the hours of 8am and 9am and 3pm and 4pm on school days. this coupled with the number of hospital workers, CBD workers and school staff who are parked or are attempting to park or leave in this area at the same times makes this proposal unrealistic. if the buses are to move from tom Flood, Barnard street is definitely not the answer. Graham Clark, Barnard Street, Bendigo.

Merger a positive i HaVe followed the recent media coverage regarding the taFe system with interest, and i was impressed with the extensive and well-balanced article on page 1 of your april 11 edition. some years ago i had the privilege of serving a number of terms as a Board member of the Bendigo taFe

TobuyasignedcopyofanyGlanville cartoonpleasephone54402500

College (although it wasn’t known by that name then), during which time i was chairman for more than five years. During my time as chairman the taFe facilities at echuca, Kerang, Castlemaine, and Kyneton were merged with Bendigo, and significant benefits came about for the students who lived in the smaller towns. there is a parallel between that situation and that of today, as a merger with a large organisation such as the Kangan institute, with its outstanding facilities, would certainly be of benefit to all of our students, both current and future. an important issue to be faced by those who wish to raise objections to this possible merger, is that there is a major difference between the taFe system of today, compared to what it was during my time, and that difference is competition. in those days we enjoyed a monopoly in vocational training, now decisions by state governments of both persuasions, have created an industry of private providers, with whom our taFe college, and all the others in the state, need to compete with for market share. Who can argue with that? i strongly support the concept of a merger with Kangan, and offer my congratulations to board chair Margaret o’rourke, and Ceo Peter Coyne, for taking the initiative in their discussions with Kangan.

this bendigo life By Trevor Budge, greater Bendigo council, manager, strategy

“You’re not getting any younger.” it’s an old saying but a reality we all face. Depending on what stage of life you’re in, it may be time to start thinking about selling the family home, downsizing or moving somewhere where the hard work of cooking and cleaning is taken care of. the majority of us will one day find ourselves in need of aged care and some sooner than others. take Barry Morvell for example, a resident at White Hills Haven. the retired avoca shearer survived a horrific truck crash and spent three months in hospital. returning home was not an option, so his daughter brought him to Bendigo. greater Bendigo council has recently released its draft residential Development strategy for public comment. not only do we need to plan for typical housing options such as family homes, townhouses and apartments but we also need to think about where we will go when we can no longer stay in our own homes. Bendigo is short on residential aged care accommodation options, including rooms for

rent for those who do not have any assets to sell to buy their way into such housing. industry experts believe there needs to be more facilities where residents can pay rent fortnightly or monthly in exchange for a roof over their heads. it’s not only the elderly who face housing struggles. affordable housing for young people on low or no incomes is also a problem. a volunteer in residential aged care was recently contacted by a person in their 20s hoping to rent a room in an aged care facility because they had exhausted all other avenues. it’s true, low-rent accommodation or aged care facilities are not as lucrative as a multi-home subdivision but they are no less important. the final strategy must address all types of housing needs for people of all different incomes and stages of life. it is up to developers, community organisations and perhaps those, young and old, who have personally experienced the difficulties of accessing low income housing to make a submission to the draft strategy before May 30. to do so visit www.bendigo. vic.gov.au/residentialstrategy or scroll to complete the five minute survey.

A model citizen THERE aren’t many better places at Easter time than Bendigo. The weather has started to cool, the grass has started to green and the trees have started to colour. It’s not just Mother Nature who comes alive in Bendigo during autumn. The Easter Festival is one of our city’s finest traditions. While it may not be a patch on festivals of yesteryear, there is still something for everyone. No doubt it, and local businesses, have suffered with the new three-day format, for locals it is a time of year to look forward to for all ages. From the art show and book fair to the rides at Tom Flood and Rosalind Park, anyone spending any time at the fair will have a lot of fun. There is no doubt Bendigo puts its best foot forward at Easter time. It is therefore fitting we decided to put one of Bendigo’s best on the front of our Easter edition. Skye Kinder is the current Greater Bendigo Young Citizen of the Year. As highlighted by mayor Barry Lyons at the time:

“Born and raised in Bendigo and graduating from BSSC, Skye is undertaking her practical medical training at Bendigo hospital this year. “She is regarded as a high achiever and is greatly respected in medical circles. “In her short university career, Skye has travelled to America to complete a medical research internship with a Professor from Harvard University and has also completed a medical ethics and health policy internship with a senior advisor to the Obama Administration. “Locally, Skye is involved in rural health promotion and is president of the University of Melbourne’s Rural Health Club and sits on the National Rural Health Students’ Network Council, which represents 9000 Australian University students on rural health issues. “As president of the Rural Health Club, Skye has expanded a number of rural health initiatives within Victoria and lead workshops at public schools including Weeroona College Bendigo involving activities such as plaster casting, looking at x-rays, learning to take blood pressure and using

stethoscopes. “The workshops are designed to highlight how enjoyable working in a health profession can be and identify ways to study them at university. “Skye runs a national exchange program for medical students, which she expanded to Bendigo, Townsville and Cairns to ensure students who choose to study in rural hospitals receive equal opportunities and to breakdown the notion that working rurally as a doctor limits what you can achieve in a medical career. “Skye is also committed to raising the profile of rural health care on an international level and has represented Australia at the International Federation of Medical Students Association (IFMSA) General Assembly in Chile last year and again represented Australia at the same event in Tunisia in March. “The IFMSA is considered by the UN to be the official voice of medical students for all United Nations/World Health Organisation discussions about the biggest medical issues facing the world and how to address them.” Wow, and all this just five days after her 23rd birthday.

pk A share of the burden with Peter Kennedy

THE Federal Government has been posturing for a while now about the need to change the Australian aged pension scheme, and as the budget draws nearer, speculation about cuts, changes and charges will only increase. There’s no doubt something needs to give, and as an ageing nation about to experience a rapid increase in the number of people looking to access the pension, we cannot afford to keep doing things the way we are. Money is a finite thing, and when the budget is stressed, we need to look at better ways to do the same thing. And given this is to be Joe Hockey’s first budget, expect some fairly strong measures. The problem I have is that with very few exceptions, the debate about changes to the aged pension is being driven by people who will most

likely never be impacted by these changes, because their superannuation scheme and benefits are a deal too good to be true. No federal minister is ever going to have to live on the aged pension, nor most likely the highly paid bureaucrat or consultant being paid to do the maths.

longer in order to access the aged pension when politicians don’t have to do the same. I’d even be happy to see my elected representatives paid a bit more while in office, so long as they are accountable for it, and that they are then paid a lot less when they are not in office. Winding back some of

We have outgrown our willingness to accept the rich entitlements But as a nation we have outgrown our willingness to accept the rich entitlements offered to former politicians. It’s not a sign of disrespect or envy, but it is a sign that change is needed. It’s hard to ask hard working Australians, especially in the lower and middle classes, to accept they must work for

the excessive entitlements politicians continue to enjoy post-office might not solve the problem, but at least it shows the pollies are prepared to harbour their share of the burden, and the pain that lies ahead. twitter@peterkennedy23 pk@bendigoweekly.com.au

Facing up to the internet Steve suffers with technology, while others use it for love

W

Bendigo Weekly – Thursday, April 17, 2014

ITH all of this modern technology, you’d think I would be able to get decent broadband. Somewhere there is someone pedalling the internet and they have forgotten me. Despite all of the fuss the governments have made, the fact remains we are being left behind. I reckon the NBN could be completely installed with the money that’s been spent looking for wreckage in the Indian Ocean. Sure it’s bad news, but they are not looking for survivors are they? Anyway, my broadband means I can’t watch iView or SBS on Demand, a beautiful system where you use the internet to catch up on television programmes you have missed. My system grinds to a halt when anyone else uses the internet in my area. It’s painful and nobody has seemed to help. But this week I finally had contact. A lovely lady based in Australia actually spoke to me and gave me some hope. Month after month I pay my fee for 20MB and I usually get about 1MB. That’s five per cent.

It seems I share the node with 17 other households, and when we are all online we get an 18th of the available speed. It’s just not fast enough. I found out we have a “restricted” service in my neck of the woods. I don’t know why, I don’t pay a restricted price. Anyway, my new friend at the internet company is sure to be of help. Watch out Lisa Chesters MP, I am going to ask you to step in on my behalf soon. Anyway, enough whingeing, I saw an exciting use of technology this week and it worked. Jacinta the classie head honcho who described me as the walking dead last week is in the first couple of years of a relationship and is still doing all of the lovey-dovey stuff. It’s sweet really, but as I have not quite forgiven her for the walking dead comment, I will pass on the gossip. Jacinta is pretty good at the selfie. The selfie, for those who don’t know, is taking a picture of yourself or with friends on your phone and sending it on to others in your gang. It’s quite common, but I imagine vain people do it more often.

Us walking dead tend not to do it, but I caught Jacinta in the act. Jacinta likes to trade pictures with her beau while they are at work. Sweet little missives because they can’t stand being apart, with the bonus of a photo. Goodness me. Seems she’s a bit of an expert at it, as she trades early morning pictures with her sisters, bed hair and no make up. I don’t know why, but I bet that looks like the walking dead. I wonder if these pictures snapchatted in haste are all waiting somewhere to be discovered by social archaeologists of the future. Bendigo female, circa 2014.

“What on earth is going on?” I can’t claim to be totally innocent in the technology side of things, I use facebook for embarrassing photos of Old Nick in the office, and pictures of cats. That’s what the internet’s for isn’t it? I like to tweet on twitter a bit if you want to see, but realistically I have a stunted internet development nowadays. I lay the blame firmly on the doorstop of my internet provider. There is no way I can do Snapchat, it’s out of date by the time it gets there, and my ebaying has dropped back to nothing. By the time the bid gets through the internet the item has long gone. twitter: @stevekendall1

dear dotty... Dear Dotty, I don’t understand why people are getting excited about the Muslim community building a mosque, have they seen the big tower that the Buddhists are building in the bush out past Eaglehawk? Howard Dear Howard, Yes, it is very big isn’t it? And do you know that ever since the Buddhists came to town there has been rioting on the streets, and forget the pillage and plundering. I’ve also heard rumours that the Buddhists are soon going to take over council, and the world is going to come to an end. So yes, let’s be prepared for the next round of religious take overs. Dear Dotty, Every year I am inundated with family who come up for the Easter Fair. I do enjoy their company and cooking for 14 people and going to the procession but it does get a bit tiring. Sue

You can have it both ways! Both print and online advertising have their benefits, so the smart approach is to include both in your marketing mix. It’s hard to beat the targeting potential, longevity, and true reader engagement that can only come from quality print and online advertising.

Dear Sue, I hate the Easter Fair. I am so sick and tired of it. I hope it rains and the dragon gets wet and all the firecrackers fizz out. Don’t get me wrong, it is great for those who are interested, but I am a bit beyond it. Those who are interested include out-oftowners, although not as many as yesteryear. My advice to you, Sue, would be to move out of the house and go away for a few days and leave the family to it. If you can’t afford to go away, this sounds drastic, but have a go at camping.

USTRALIAN music acts British India and Calling All Cars will rock Rosalind Park tonight from 5pm. The FReeZA youth events team Mic Up Productions will present the free outdoor gig to be held on the eve of the Easter long weekend. Mic Up Productions team member Perrin Lyle said it was a coup to attract bands of this calibre to Bendigo. “These bands have been developing a strong name for themselves on national radio and by supporting some of the biggest acts on the Australian and international music scenes,” Mr Lyle said. “Headline act British India has recently supported Fall Out Boy’s Australian stadium tour and Hunters and Collectors, Something For Kate, and You Am I as part of the A Day on the Green touring series. “Calling All Cars has released its much-anticipated album Raise The People and will soon undertake a 23-date national tour. The band’s first single Standing In the Ocean is one of the most played songs on radio station Triple J. “This will be a great event for people of all ages, as the bands have broad appeal, and will also be an opportunity for local up and coming acts to introduce their sound to a wider audience.” Bendigo-based bands The Kings Republic and Novango will kick things off, followed by All the Colours who are coming off the back of the Big Day Out Tour and recently released first single Love Like This. The gig runs from 5pm to 9pm and people of all ages are welcome to attend. The FReeZA program is a Victorian Government initiative and forms an important part of the City’s Youth Strategy. The program has assisted in offering this fully supervised drug, alcohol and smoking-free event.

ACK to knock some sense back into the nation, The Grumpy Old Women return with their new show 50 Shades of Beige. This show comes from the original authors, Jenny Éclair and Judith Holder. It includes all of the most grumpy topics... learning the art of grumpy grooming, the joy of large pants, a free nagging master class- how to get your own way without him even noticing, beards for women, which style will suit you? There’s a complimentary anger management workshop, middle-aged drinking: the rules, navigating the smorgasbord of worry, voluntary euthanasia vs. retirement, how to customise an unwanted pole dancing kit and a mercifully brief Zumba demonstration. All this and more. Inspired by the BBC Two series and Grumpy Old Women handbook, Grumpy Old Women Live, is a celebration of the pre-, peri- and postmenopausal female condition. Three live and rather furious females take to the stage for an orgy of middle aged mayhem, with not a thong in sight. The show is at the Capital Theatre on Thursday, May 8 at 7.30pm.

Culinary questions with Jody and Brent Loam of the Willow Room, Heathcote Q. What’s the best potato and method to use for making gnocchi? A. For gnocchi you want a dry, floury potato, not one that is waxy. Use either desiree, king Edward, royal blue, or a sebago and you should be pretty right. I always bake my potatoes in their skins on a bed of rock salt. This dries out the potatoes and gives the flesh a light almost fluffy texture to make the perfect soft gnocchi. Scoop out the flesh and mash or put through a mouli if you have one. Don’t over work the dough when adding the flour and egg as this will make the gnocchi tough. Q. What are some uses for fresh beetroot? A. Fresh beetroot is a fantastic and very versatile vegetable. Simply roasted with garlic and thyme it can be a great side for a roast. Cooked then chilled and sliced thinly they make a great carpaccio dish that can be garnished with crumbled goats cheese, roasted almonds and fresh mint. Grated raw beetroot easily makes a tasty salad or slaw. Also use half beetroot and half potato to make beetroot gnocchi. Q. What is Ras el Hanout? A. Ras el Hanout is an African mix of spices used in lots of different savoury dishes mostly with Moroccan influence. Its often rubbed on different meats or fish and used to flavour rice or cous cous. The name translates into “head of the shop� and implies it’s a mixture of the best spices that the shop has to offer. Some Moroccans would use it just for special dishes or occasions.

Perfect buns L

AST week we talked about hot cross buns. This year I have taken it up a notch though, I’m intent on perfecting my own homebaked hot cross buns. In years gone past when I’ve attempted this, it has led to groans from the family and an Easter spent cleaning up flour from every nook and cranny of the kitchen. I’m a very messy cook. Hot cross buns are full of ingredients that turn very sticky in the cooking process, it’s a combination that can lead to disaster at my hands. Having joined the thermomix cult, I have become someone who can manage to leave the kitchen relatively clean after a baking session that involves yeast. I could have used this new-found refinement just to produce one batch of hot cross buns but now I am obsessed. I want to perfect the recipe. I want to set the recipe that we will return to year after year. The first batch looked the part, but they were too doughy and didn’t rise enough.

Perhaps I took the earth mother thing a little too far, the crosses were certainly more of the “organic� version wandering across the top of the bun and in part being up to half an inch think. Smaller hole in the piping bag next time I think. They looked the part and the taste was getting close to ideal. Now to refine the recipe. To peel or not to peel? I don’t really notice peel in hot cross buns. Does that mean my favourites don’t have it? Or does it mean I find it so integral to the taste experience? Then there’s the level of spice. I’ve scoured the internet comparing spices used. Nigella’s recipe has not only nutmeg and cinnamon but also cardamom and even

Tradition continues

B

ENDIGO really gets cracking over the next few days with locals and visitors alike for the annual Bendigo Easter Festival. Festivities start this evening at Rosalind Park from 5pm with British India, Calling All Cars and All the Colours. Followed by Hazeldene’s Family Day on Good Friday, starting at 9am featuring Vision Australia’s Easter egg hunt, a petting zoo, vintage and classic car displays amid roving entertainment, music/dance workshops and family friendly activities. Activities continue in the park through Saturday as well as plenty to see and do at the Dai Gum San precinct in Park Road from 11am. See and experience the excitement from 2pm Saturday as Chung Loong readies for another Easter Festival with the official Awakening of the Dragon ceremony. Bendigo’s Torchlight Procession gets under way at 8pm in the CBD before a spectacular fireworks display from the poppet head in Rosalind Park. And don’t miss the procession to end all processions on Easter Sunday, with the Gala Parade at 1pm, featuring numerous floats from a variety of community groups down View Street and along Pall Mall before ending in Bridge Street.

Or perhaps the Bull Street Live Rock and Blues Festival is more your thing from 2pm Saturday and Sunday before concluding with the Pink and Bon Jovi tribute show. And for a change of tempo visit the Bendigo Camera Club exhibition also featuring works from the Adelaide Camera Club, this Easter at Dudley House in View Street. To see the full program visit www. bendigoeasterfestival.org.au or download the free Bendigo Easter Festival App to your smartphone. See more on pages 8 to 11 in this paper.

The centre’s newly upgraded amenities have also reopened, while refurbishment works to the existing mall are due for completion in July.

A new healthier alternative Y

O2GO Pancakes and Yogurt has just opened in time for Easter in McCrae Street, just across from the Universal providing a new refreshing and tasty sensation seven days a week. The ultimate in a selfserve food stall, YO2GO will be popular with young and old customers alike offering amazing self-serve frozen yoghurts, slushies, pancakes and hotdogs. You can pay and go, or sit indoors or out and enjoy the latest sensations with dozens of toppings to compliment your selection of pancakes or yogurts. “We offer customers a healthy alternative from 8am until late,” Teena said. “Our frozen yogurt is bursting with probiotic cultures and comes with the choice of dozens of mouthwatering toppings.” Customers can choose from a variety of fruit, and confectionery including YO2GO’s signature chocolate topping, which is to die for.

REFRESHING: YO2GO Photo: GARRY PATERSON

Teena and Mark Slater’s new venture will help satisfy Bendigo’s insatiable appetite for frozen yoghurt products, which are rapidly gaining acceptance as a healthy and fun alternative, as evident by the number of frozen yoghurt outlets Australia wide. “Mark and I decided to go it alone rather than buying a franchise,” Teena said. “This way we aren’t dictated to as what we can offer our customers and can

vary our range to suit their needs.” “Like our self serve pancake machine which has fresh pancakes on your plate in less than half a minute, ready to be served with warm or cold topping of your choice.” And with the cooler weather finally here the coffee or hot chocolate is bound to be popular as well. YO2GO open from 8am until late at 128 McCrae Street Bendigo. Phone 5441 1827.

ANT to explore a road less travelled? Perhaps Myanmar (formerly Burma) is the destination for you. With influences from India and China it is a county like no other. From the hustle of Yangon to the tranquillity of Bagan or Inle Lake, Myanmar has an itinerary for you. Everywhere you go, Myanmar is a gentle, friendly country of smiling inhabitants Explore Myanmarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest city Yangon, where you can wander the streets and view the impressive architecture influenced by British colonisation

centuries ago. From Yangon venture into the countryside and boat down the mighty Irrawaddy River â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Myanmarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest. Take a step sideways and embrace the amazing landscape of Bagan, with more than 2200 Pagodas (tiered towers) dating back to the 11th century. Need adventure? Try the 777 step climb up Mount Popa, a dormant volcano located 1518 metres above sea level. For a more relaxing stay visit Inle Lake, in the Shan district. Quiet and shallow, Inle Lake is best explored by canoe to visit the villages

who live and work on the water. Watch locals grow crops floating on water and fish using traditional techniques.

China - history, pandas, markets & more Fresh from Myanmar & the world less travelled to one of the most populated countries in the world - China. My journey starts in the capital, Beijing, home to far too many people, yet somehow this society not only works, but thrives. It is the perfect base for a day trip to see the mighty Ming Dynastyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great Wall, the intriguing Forbidden City, home to former emperors and a wander around Tiananmen Square. No visit to Beijing is complete without a stroll through the Temple of heaven and if interested, the Silk and Pearl Markets where you can seek out a bargain. For the best food, head to the Hutongs and experience a traditional Peking Duck dinner. Next stop, Xian. Visit the impressive Terracotta Warriors, an ancient farming sight that lay homage to the Emperors army. Lost for hundreds of years, only recently rediscovered by local farmers when digging for a well in 1974. This vast complex houses over 8000 warriors each different in appearance & weapons. From here, head to Shanghai, see the Bund,

heritage matters

The majority were actually poor I

N 1859, the view was generally expressed that the Chinese diggers were wealthy, however this was quite erroneous. The majority of the Chinese diggers were poor, although the more financially successful were able to possess puddling machines. To have a puddling machine, one needed sufficient capital to own two horses – one to operate the machine and the other for helping to cart the washed dirt to the puddler. Normally there would be three people required to successfully do all that was required to keep the puddling machine in fairly constant operation. Horse feed at that time was expensive. In the 1850s and 1860s period, less than one fifth of the Chinese diggers had possession of a puddling machine. The remaining four fifths of the Chinese digging population were, “mere mining labourers”. One writer remarked: “Gold mining is not the lucrative enterprise imagined, there are a majority who are unable to support themselves. “The Chinese, who taken as a class, generally speaking, are even worse off than their more civilized fellow colonists”. Note the inference in the last three words quoted

here, that they were uncivilised. Largely because of the variety of taxes which were only applicable to the Chinese, this led to the observation in 1860: ”We pride ourselves of our free institutions and turn up our eyes at the slave system in the United States, while we allow our rulers to make slaves of the Chinese who are kept amongst us just like taxable commodities”. In October, 1867, in the Sandhurst (Bendigo) Police Court there was the case of a poor crippled Chinese who had been arrested. Ching Tue had the habit of begging while wandering through the shopping streets. He was committed to jail for one month which was seen as a charitable thing to do, at least he would receive regular food. Due to the amount of destitution among the Chinese, the opinion was given that these cases should be brought to the attention of the authorities. Crawford Mollison who, in 1860 was the Chinese Protector, should be notified or Dr Roche, alternatively to Lachlan MacLachlan the police magistrate. The foregoing was brought about largely as a result of a Chinese digger whom had very recently died at the Fourth White Hill, he had received neither

European nor Chinese medical attention. At a Bendigo City Council meeting in early April 1895, a report from the Sanitary Inspector was tabled and discussed. The inspector’s report again reiterated what he had stated previously, that the sanitary arrangements at the Ironbark Camp were most unsatisfactory. His suggestion was that two closets (toilets) be built. As the inspector went on to state, the Chinese were too poor to pay the sanitary rate or to provide proper accommodation. At the meeting it was resolved to fill the closet

cess pits and interview the leading Chinese as to the provision of sanitary pans. A Chinese tailings stacker and processor certainly was not financially doing well. He had paid a company for the privilege of treating their tailings from the battery, washing the crushed waste through long sluice boxes in the hope that he might catch some miniscule gold particles that had somehow escaped the traditional retrieval process. The company prided itself in their report to shareholders, indicating that they managed to amalgamate almost all the gold in the battery boxes.

There was hardly any sign of gold on the mercury coated copper plates. It was observed that the poor, half starved Chinaman working the tailings had not so far earned even rice money. The accompanying photograph, courtesy of E Harvey, shows one of the many Chinese huts in the Ironbark Chinese Camp. Of particular interest is the large number of riddles or screens from the hoppers of gold cradles in the foreground on the left. The hut itself is made from mud and roofed with scraps of metal weighted down by stones.

HE oldest part of the Queen Elizabeth Oval cottage has long been identified as a former powder magazine, a storage facility for gun powder during the Goldrush, but research funded by the Greater Bendigo council to guide the future management of the cottage has found it was never used for this purpose. The building with the slate roof likely dates back to 1858 and is one of the oldest surviving buildings from the government camp that managed Bendigo’s gold field. It was constructed as a “public works office’”and the real powder magazine was located where the poppet head is now. Around 1894, a cottage with a verandah was built possibly for the Upper Reserve Keeper, who maintained the oval and lived in the cottage and worked in the office. The two buildings were linked to form one by the late 1920s. The QEO cottage remains a very important heritage building and is one of Bendigo’s oldest structures. - Megan McDougall

Recovery the focus

OUT OF REACH: Bendigo Gold. Photo: ANDREW PERRYMAN

By JOEL PETERSON

A SHORT five-day break between games doesn’t worry Bendigo Gold coach Aussie Jones before his side takes on Essendon on Good Friday. The Gold suffered a last quarter fadeout on Sunday, going down to Werribee by 83 points after the Tigers kicked 10 goals to two in the last term. Former Bendigo Pioneer Liam Byrne was named the Gold’s best in what was a spirited display for three quarters, before some unaccountable footy cost the team in the last. With only a five day break between Sunday’s clash and Friday’s standalone Good Friday game against Essendon Jones said recovery would be

the focus for the side this week. “Our Monday session was basically recovery and we did a bit more recovery on Wednesday, just to get the boys right,” he said. “It’s a long season, and our draw opens up and gives us some breaks later on in the year, and

ability, has surpassed expectations according to Jones. “There was no question we knew Tigga could play, but he has had a great start to the season and his leadership has been great,” Jones said. “He has coached so understands how to speak to

It’s a long season, and our draw opens up and gives us some breaks later on we don’t want any injuries early in the season.” Jones said the early season work of recruit Tyrone Downie, who came to the club from Kangaroo Flat, had been particularly impressive. Downie’s on-field ability, but also his leadership

the group, and we couldn’t be happier with how he has made the transition to this level.” Essendon will take a strong side into Friday’s match, with AFL-listed players Leroy Jetta and Tom Bellchambers set yo make their return from in-

jury agsinst the Gold. Jones said he will continue to give his younger players the chance to play against the big guns. “I don’t mind giving them to the young guys, if you look at the Werribee game Jordan Hargreaves, in his first game, played on Majak Daw and did a really good job,” Jones said. “Whether it’s a Brandon Hayes, who will play his first game this week,or someone else, we know they will be up for the challenge. “They are a good side and we expect a great contest, and hopefully a big crowd to watch Good Friday footy.” Friday’s Bendigo Gold vs Essendon Clash gets under way at 2.30pm at the Queen Elizabeth Oval.

Golden City silver GOLDEN City claimed its first piece of Bendigo Amateur Soccer League silverware in the men’s division one competition for well over a decade when it defeated Eaglehawk 2-0 at Tom Flood Sports Centre in the pre-season competition on Sunday. It was 16 year old Goodwill Basha who opened the scoring for the Rams in the 20th minute, after a great run from Josh Claney which started almost back at the half way mark. Oliver Leonard-Shannon was another for the Rams who relished the opportunity to play senior football, troubling Eaglehawk with his pace. Eaglehawk looked to regroup after the half time break and created a couple of early chances, which were well saved by City keeper Jayden Abbott. Eaglehawk changed its lineup in the second half to try to get the match back on their

terms but the Rams ran out deserving winners after years at the lower end of the BASL Championship standings. The men’s division two match was probably the closest match of the day, both sides controlled possession evenly in the first half before two second half strikes saw Spring Gully take a 2-0 victory. In a high scoring affair in the women’s division final, Jade de Marchi scored a brace to give Spring Gully a 5-3 win over Epsom. The game was evenly poised with Spring Gully leading 2-1 at half time, but Gully had too much class in the second half for the Scorpions. Finally, in another shootout, Strathdale claimed a win in its lone final of the day, defeating Swan Hill 5-4 in a freeflowing contest. The BASL season proper kicks off on Saturday, April 26.

Fund chase grows THE Bendigo Tennis Association is calling on both the federal and state governments to provide financial support to its proposed Nolan Street complex redevelopment. The BTA was set to receive $5.2 million in funding for the project under the Regional Development Australia Fund, before the funding was withdrawn earlier this year. The plan has been in place for the past four years, and comes off the back of the recently-completed McDonalds Junior Classic, which saw around 330 players and families travel to Bendigo for the three day tournament. “The 2014 McDonalds Classic was another great event for both the Tennis Association and the wider Bendigo community,” BTA president Paul Henshall said. “It is one of the largest tennis events in the Victoria, with players travelling to Bendigo for

all states and territories to compete for the $10,000 in cash and trophies, and Australian ranking points. “It had a significant financial impact for the local community, with many of the nearby hotels, motels and city shops, benefiting from the travelling sports tourists.” The BTA is the third largest deliver of large scale tennis events in Victoria, behind only Melbourne’s National Tennis Centre and the Boroondara Tennis Complex. Henshall said the shortcomings of the current facility added increased cost to the BTA, with temporary infrastructure yet again needed to be bought in to cater for the event. “We were forced to bear the additional costs of temporary infrastructure, in the form of portable marquees/shelter, medical rooms, access toilet, and additional seating to cater for the players and families,” he said.

THE second running of the K-Sports ITTF Oceania Cup got under way in Bendigo yesterday, with the region’s table tennis players vying for a prized world cup spot. Some of the sport’s biggest names will hit the tables at the Bendigo Stadium until Monday in both singles and team events. William Henzell and Miao Miao headline the men’s and women’s draws respectively, with leading men’s challenger David Powell and Australian paralympian Melissa Tapper

looking to book their ticket to October’s ITTF World Cup. Tapper is out to better her fourth-placed finish in last year’s tournament, taken out by Miao Miao. “Coming back to Bendigo is an opportunity to improve on last year’s fourth place in the premier event on the ITTF-Oceania calendar,” she said. “It will provide its own challenge for me. I’ve been training well, life is good and I’m looking forward to the event.” Tapper has already had a strong year, qualifying for

the Australian able-bodied Commonwealth Games team at the Australian qualification event held earlier this year. When the Commonwealth Games Association announced its official team, Melissa Tapper was announced alongside Miao Miao and Henzell, two of the country’s all-time greats. “The anticipation is a real motivator at the moment,” she said. Having first picked up a table tennis racket at the age of 12, Tapper grew up competing against ablebodied athletes for years de-

spite having brachial plexus nerve damage in her right arm. Jian Fang Lay, Zhenhua Dederko, Miao Miao and Vy Bui will join tapper in her quest for gold in the Women’s Team event, whereas in the ITTF-Oceania Cup, Jian Fang Lay and Zhenhua Dederko will line up as opponents. The team finals will be held on Friday, with the men’s and women’s open finals held on Monday evenning. Tickets for the event are available through the Bendigo Visitors Centre.

Busy on the field By JOEL PETERSON

THE Easter weekend always sees Bendigo active, but this year the Bendigo Football Netball League is more abuzz than ever with a massive round of games slated across the weekend. Good Friday football has been put in full swing by the BFNL, with Kyneton hosting Gisborne and Maryborough travelling to Castlemaine before Kangaroo Flat and Golden Square do battle under lights at Beck Legal Oval. Not only will the undefeated Roos be looking to build on the club’s best start since 2001, former Carlton full forward Brendan Fevola will also be lining up for the club. A big day will see the seniors game get under way at 6.15pm, with Fevola holding an Auskick clinic before the match and speaking at a pregame function, to help the

club celebrate its 150th year. Saturday will see Sandhurst travel to Flight Centre Park to take on Strathfieldsaye in a blockbuster clash, but the headline act is the return of BFNL action to Kennington’s Harry Trott Oval when South Bendigo tackles Eaglehawk. The match will be the Bloods’ first at the Neale Street ground, which formerly played host to the Kennington Football Club, but has not hosted senior football since the Saints went into recess at the start of 1994. The game is part of a fiveyear plan for the Bloods to move their home base from the QEO to Neale Street, which will also include a redevelopment of the ground’s facilities to include netball courts. “We have started training here this year, and the next step in the plan is that next season the junior club will

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: SBFC’s Rick Townsend and Aaron Connaughton with Justin Abrams of the BFNL at the launch of the Bloods community day to be held on Saturday. Photo: BILL CONROY come across here,” Bloods’ president Rick Townsend said this week. “We would like to think we will play a few more games here next year, and working with the council to redevelop the ground. “That will involve new lights, a new scoreboard, resurfacing and extending the ground, putting netball courts in and that will happen over the next few years, in what is a

gradual process. “It is slow going, but will be great for both our football and netball, and allow us to have continued success in years to come.” AFL Central Victoria region operations manager Justin Abrams said the BFNL was in support of the move, and the club’s community day added to a massive round in local footy. “It’s fantastic, not only for

us as a league but for South Bendigo as well,” Abrams said. “There is a big benefit in engaging the local community, which goes a long way for South, in having a home base. “We have been really happy with the start to our season, the standard has been great, and we certainly expect this weekend to showcase some great games as well.” All three games of football between Eaglehawk and

South Bendigo will be played at Harry Trott, with senior action from 2.20pm. As the ground does not have a netball facility, the netball games will be held at the QEO. Local Kennington residents will be offered a free South Bendigo home game membership if they attend the game at Harry Trott on Saturday.
