Yea’s first Show was in 1909 ■ The first official Yea Show was held on November 18, 1909 - some 110 years ago. The Yea Agricultural, Pastoral and Horticultural Association (Show Society) notes that local residents had participated in 18 shows and exhibitions before the first AP&H Show in 1909. “In 1874 the Yea & Alexandra Pastoral and Agricultural [Association] was formed with a predominance of Yea citizens on the committee but 17 of these early exhibitions were held at Alexandra and only one at Yea,” notes the Show Society. “The first proposed Show in 1874, to be held in Yea, was nearly postponed because of a general election and the prevalence of a Diphtheria epidemic in the district at that time.” The Yea Show website continues the story: “In 1909 a public meeting was called in Yea for the purpose of forming a committee to stage an agricultural show. “Seventy people attended the meeting on September 30, 1909, and this energetic committee held their first Yea Show on November 18, 1909, a magnificent effort in such a short timeframe, not only to organise the competitions but to build the infrastructure needed to hold the livestock and other exhibits. “The first Show was held on a Thursday afternoon and evening and “although there was still a lot of work to do on show morning, a scene of animation was evident everywhere. “Visitors flooded in from neighbouring towns with special trains running from Seymour, Alexandra and Mansfield. The crowd was largest at 4pm and gate receipts realised a very favourable £80.” “For the second show in 1910 a record 600 people came down from Mansfield by special train with their livestock also on board and that town staged ‘a marvellous exhibition’. “In 1911 a Dairy Herd competition was introduced which ran for many years reflecting the large dairy industry in the district at that time with the Yea & Mansfield Dairy Factory, still a prominent building in the town exporting butter throughout Australia and to the ‘Mother Country’. “In later years the Dalgety Beef Herd competition reflected the trend towards Beef rather than Dairy herds and was highly contested locally with several of our local properties winning the state finals. “The 1915 Show was pronounced a great success despite the adverse conditions produced by the war and the prolonged drought and a profit of £5 was made after donating £20 to the patriotic fund. “Over the years of WWI the Yea Show committee continued to donate the bulk of monies raised to various war effort causes such as the Lady Stanley Fund for Wounded and Disabled Soldiers. “The Yea Chronicle reported record entries and that “the main Pavilion was a big attraction for the ladies for in it was exhibited all that is dear to the feminine heart”. “The Yea Show has continued down through the years despite battling the Depression, adverse weather conditions and the shortage of labour during the war years. “The Show was cancelled for a few years during the Second World War and again in 1981 because of a local bushfire and in 2011 all horse
visitors, stock owners, and the public generally, whose opinion was that the ground was an ideal spot for a show. “The exhibits, generally, were of a high order. In draught stock some exceptionally fine horses were exhibited. “The brood mares and foals showed plenty of breeding. “Mansfield supplied the bulk of the exhibits. “The spring cart horses were a good lot, but the Killingworth horse that deservedly won the first prize, stood out conspicuously. “Blood stock was not too well represented, and there is plenty of room for improvement next year. “A two year old filly by Hymettus, the property of Mr J. Rice, showed a lot of breeding, and one shown by Mr J. C. Robertson also attracted attention.”

■ As far as is known, the concert, which passed off smoothly, will yield a profit of about £12 or £14, said a local press report on November 25, 1909. “Mr W. H. and Miss Taite were mainly instrumental in its organisation but in no less a degree is the credit which they earned, due to the performers as a whole. “The feature of the entertainment was the juvenile turns by Miss Taite's and Miss Roland's pupils. “The first was a song and floral march, She's a Lassie from Lancashire by the following :Misses Hunter, Gow (soloists) Kidd, McLeish, Tosh, Redpath, Stainsby.

Smith, A. Smith, Coles, Kidd, Hunter, Gow, McLeish, Tosh, Redpath, Gook, Downie and Borrie. Masters Buckland, Cosgrove, McIntosh, Hunter, Tosh and Teddy Morkbam. “The above item was a very entertaining one. “Some of Miss Roland's pupils were seen in a pretty rainbow ribbon dance, their names being: Misses Quinlan, Logan, Coles, R. Coles, Wightman, McLeish, Thomas, Cosgrove, A. Smith, I. Smith, Tosh, Gow and B. McLeish. “The following also contributed to the programme viz:Misses Fordyce, Daley, and Edes; Messrs Dunn, McConville, Edes, Templeton, Taite, and G. Templeton. “The latter is a brother of Mr T. H. Templeton, his recitations, especially the "Amateur Rider" were splendidly given, and roundly appauded. “Mr W. Taite's comic numbers were among the best received and most acceptable during the evening; “The lyric orchestra. conducted by Mr Stainsby, rendered valuable assistance.”

Local Briefs Quarry Hills idea
■ City of Whittlesea residents are invited to share their ideas and feedback for a new adventure park and playground, set to be built in the Quarry Hills Regional Parkland in South Morang. Granite Hills Park will transform the open space into an impressive community hub with play equipment, open-air pavilion with public barbecues and picnic settings, lawn maze, nature and water play, public toilets with a Changing Places facility and connected walking trails. The park will be one of four major community parks in the City of Whittlesea, providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the co-designed play features and explore the picturesque natural landscape. City of Whittlesea Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the construction of Granite Hills Park is a significant step in activating Quarry Hills Regional Parkland, providing residents and visitors the chance to experience the expansive nature reserve. “Granite Hills Park will breathe new life into the precinct and offer the perfect setting for friends and neighbours to gather together and enjoy the wonderful surrounds of Quarry Hills Regional Parkland,” Ms Wilson said. “We encourage residents to share their feedback on Council’s concept design and help shape the future of Granite Hills Park.” Residents can have their say about the park’s proposed design by completing an online survey by August 15 or attending one of the pop-up sessions in South Morang and Mernda in July. For dates and locations or to submit a survey, visit engage.whittlesea. vic.gov.au/granite-hills Granite Hills Park will be built in stages, starting in 2022.
Investment in W’sea
■ An innovative plan to attract new business ventures to the City of Whittlesea that also supports existing businesses to grow while creating more jobs for local people has been launched to boost the local economy. Whittlesea Council’s first comprehensive Investment Attraction Plan 2021-26 was developed in consultation with businesses, industry, government and educational institutions before being adopted by Council at its meeting on July 5. Administrator Chris Eddy said the fiveyear plan represents a significant commitment from Council to support businesses to start and prosper in the municipality. “The plan outlines a range of opportunities and activities for Council, and its partners, to help existing businesses prosper as well as attract new businesses to the municipality,” Mr Eddy said. The plan includes: ■ establishing a Business Advisory Panel ■ conducting quarterly forums with different business sectors and increasing local business networking opportunities ■ increasing tailored communications and engagement with businesses ■ enhancing thebusiness concierge service, which supports business operators with grant applications, permit guidance and other resources. “We will also focus on fostering local job diversity, encouraging greater participation in the workforce and helping businesses and the economy to recover from the impact of COVID-19,” Mr Eddy said. “The City of Whittlesea is one of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities, welcoming around 8000 new residents annually; however, local employment isn’t keeping up, with only 1800 new jobs being created each year. “To help our residents secure employment near where they live, we need to attract more medium and large-sized businesses that will create a range of jobs at different levels,” Mr Eddy said. “We are aiming to attract more medium and large sized businesses, particularly in our key sectors of healthcare and social assistance, manufacturing and wholesale trade by raising awareness about the competitive advantages operating from the City of Whittlesea provides, such as proximity to major transport links and Council support options.”

Footpath roadmap ■ Nillumbik Council has a new “roadmap” for the management of local roads and footpaths in the Shire. The Road Management Plan 2021, which was adopted by Council at its June 29 meeting, outlines the processes for the inspection and repair of hazards and defects in its road and footpath network. Council is responsible for an extensive network of roads in the Shire, including 460km of sealed roads, 310km of unsealed roads and 343km of sealed pathways. The new plan details how road and footpath-related defects and hazards are managed including pot holes, trip hazards, overhanging vegetation, obstructions and spillages. Mayor Cr Peter Perkins said a safe and functioning road network was critical. “This new plan will see a continuation of our high level of service. In fact, we have increased service levels in two areas – committing to more night inspections and quicker response times for certain footpath repairs,” Cr Perkins said. “I thank those in the community who made a submission on the plan during our community engagement process. While not all submissions were within the scope of this particular project, we have forwarded your important feedback to the relevant departments for consideration in other reviews we will be performing in the future.” The new Road Management Plan is now available to view on our website under Maintenance of roads, drains and roadsides.
Library returns ■ Murrindindi Shire Council is urging the community to get back into libraries in Alexandra, Yea and Kinglake, and the Mobile Service which stops at eight localities across the Shire. The Murrindindi Library Service is part of the state-wide 'Return Yourself to the Library' initiative in an effort to boost library number attendance and encourage our community members to reconnect with one another. Council's Community Engagement and Wellbeing Portfolio Councillor, Damien Gallagher, said our libraries play a critical role in providing a social space, learning opportunities, and in providing access to a wide variety of information for people from all walks of life. murrindindi.vic.gov.au/ libraries

Questions at Whittlesea Council ■ Whittlesea Council’s Executive Manager - Public Affairs, Kristi High, has filed a Personal Interest Return in which she says she has ‘nil’ beneficial interest in shares in any company. Ms High’s return, dated April 8 this year, lists a ‘nil’ answer for “companies which you solely or jointly with family members hold a controlling interest” According to current Australian Securities and Investments Commission records, Ms High holds 100 shares in Puffafish Group Pty Ltd, a company in which her partner Anthony Woodcock is Director, and holds a controlling interest of 200 shares, As at this month, Ms High has been listed at the company’s website as the public contact for Puffafish Group Pty Ltd. The Local Paper is not suggesting any wrong doing, but only pointing out a possible difference between latest Council records, and other latest Government documents. “The story of Puffafish is a little like the Brady Brunch with a company twist and two less children,” says the company website. “One day in 2010, Journalist/ Communications Consultant Kristi High met TV/Film guy Anthony (Woody) Woodcock and decided to join forces. “Kristi High Consulting merged into Puffafish a few months later to offer a one-stop-shop all communications/copywriting/film and TV work. Then what happened? “It worked so well they got married, kept up with the comms and film needs of existing and new clients, started a magazine, added a girl to the ‘High-Cock’ family, bought a bookshop in the country, and became Puffafish Group to keep it altogether,” the website says. ★ In a series of returns lodged with the City of Whittlesea, CEO Craig Lloyd lists his involvement as a member of the Regional Development Australia (Hume Region).

Executive manager’s company owed $247,143 to 14 creditors: Liquidator
● Kristi High, now Whittlesea Council’s Executive Manager, Public Affairs ■ A company part-owned by Kristi High, now a senior executive at Whittlesea Council, was put into voluntary liquidation, owing almost quarter-of-a-million dollars to 14 creditors, according to official Australian Securities and Investments Commission documents. Liquidator Bradd William Morelli reported that the gross amount of $94,528.24 in assets of Puffafish Pty Ltd was recovered. The sum of $124,787.20 in receipts was processed during the threeyear external administration period, with the fees paid to the liquidator, Jirsch Suterland of Newcastle, NSW, totalling $51,008.10. Puffafish Pty Ltd was placed into external administration on September 15, 2015, and deregistered by ASIC on July 19, 2018. Directors and shareholders of that company at July 19, 2018, were Kristi Lee High and Anthony Peter Woodcock. The liquidator said in 2017 that “ongoing investigations”, and “purusing potential recovery of director loan account” may delay the termination of the appointment of the liquidator. Another company, Puffafish Group Pty Ltd, currently continues, according to the Australian Business Register. A website - www.puffafish.com.au - in which Ms High and Mr Woodcock advertise their services was viewable on the internet, as recently as this past week. The Puffafish Group Pty Ltd website lists Ms High as the company’s public contact, and quotes Woodend and Toorak as being the trading locations. ASIC records indicate that the current Puffafish Group director is Anthony Woodcock of Woodend, with Ms High relinquishing her directorship on January 6 last year. According to latest records lodged with ASIC, Ms High currently holds 100 of the company’s 300 shares, issued at $1 each.

Kinglake Hotel opened in 1895 ■ The first hotel on the site of today’s Kinglake Pub was built circa 1895, according to the Murrindindi Shire Heritage Study. It started life as the Thomson family home Aurelia Villa in which they also ran a post office. In 1907 Harry Thomson was granted a hotel licence and it was called the Kinglake Hotel. Harry Thompson's son, Frank Harris Thomson, with his wife Annie née Power, took over the running of the hotel from his father in 1914. The original building was destroyed during the 1926 bushfires. Harry and his family first erected a tin shed until the larger three building complex of today was built from 1927 onwards. Subsequent owners, Herb and Wilma Coller, took over the hotel in the 1960s and renamed it the National Park Hotel. Originally part of the Eltham Shire, Kinglake (including Kinglake Central, Kinglake East and Kinglake West) were named after the British historian Alexander Kinglake (180991). The name was chosen by John Lindsay Beale to honour the historian. Educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, Alexander Kinglake was called to the Bar in 1837. Subsequently he devoted himself to politics, and wrote History of the War in the Crimea (1863-7) and Eothen (1844) in which he describes a journey made in 18343-5 through parts of the Ottoman Empire, the Holy Land and Egypt. Beale, born in 1830, was the youngest son of Major Anthony and Katherine Rose Beale, PaymasterGeneral for the East India Company on the island of St Helena. The family sailed to Melbourne in 1839 and established a property on the Plenty River named St Helena after which the area of St Helena became known. Beale first took up land in the Kinglake district in the County of Anglesey in 1873. He was active in community affairs, was instrumental in the establishment of the school at Kinglake Central and is recognised as a pioneer of the district. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace for the Kinglake district and was a member of the Eltham Shire Council from 1879-94, during which time he served two terms as Shire President. Kinglake National Park, proclaimed in 1928, is one of Victoria's oldest national parks and the largest in the Melbourne area. It includes forests, fern gullies, walking tracks and viewpoints. The Kinglake area, which was part of the North Riding of the Eltham Shire, was annexed to the Shire of Yea in October 1972. When Shire amalgamations were undertaken in 1994, Kinglake became part of the Murrindindi Shire. Kinglake, Kinglake Central, Kinglake East and Kinglake West are located on the Great Dividing Range at an altitude of 1800 feet. The original Kinglake Hotel building was destroyed during the 1926 bushfires. Harry and his family first erected a tin shed until the larger three-part complex of today was built from 1927 onwards.

Letter to the Editor ■ I find it ironic that while the Andrews Labor Government prepares to allow camping on licenced river frontages later this year, at the same time, Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) and Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMV) are publicly reminding people not to camp illegally around Lake Eildon. Illegal camping has been an issue for some time. Authorised officers only want people to camp in designated areas to control and prevent risks that campers can cause to the environment through water pollution, littering, invading private property and leaving fires burning. The risks authorised officers are preventing is what river frontage licence holders may have to soon face. Whilst the risks and concerns are well known, the State Labor Government has not delivered a single cent in their budget to boost enforcement in the area once their legislation goes through. - Cindy McLeish, MLA for Eildon
Bushfire grants ■ Helen Haines MP is encouraging Indi communities affected by the 2019-20 bushfires to apply for grants between $20,000 and $10 million in the latest round of the Bushfire Recovery Grants Program. The Independent Federal Member for Indi said these grants were a great opportunity for community groups, businesses and local councils to get funds for social and economic recovery projects or rebuilding infrastructure damaged in the bushfires. Community groups, businesses and local councils in Alpine, Towong, Indigo, Mansfield, Wangaratta and Wodonga local government areas and the Alpine Resorts are eligible to apply. Applications open on July 22 and up to $276 million in grants is available, with each local government area given a set amount of funds. The program is flexible to allow communities to identify and implement projects that make sense to them. Black Summer Bushfire recovery grants offer the opportunity for local communities to address recovery priorities through creation of jobs, sustainable infrastructure and community investment. Unsuccessful projects previously submitted for funding may apply for this grant opportunity. Dr Haines encouraged community organisations, businesses and local councils to check out the eligibility criteria and consider applying.ies affected by the bushfires to get funding. https://business.gov.au/bsbr
High stakes for Boners ■ On Saturday July 10), Thornton Eildon’s netball team came up against the Warburton Millgrove Netball Club. Although we did not end up with a win, the girls played an immense game against Warburton who played a tight defensive match. After a hard-fought game Warburton beat Thornton 29 to 15. Both teams started of strong in the first quarter with great ball movement between players from the centre to the goal circle. Thornton had consistent movement through the court with some good intercepts throughout the game. All the Thornton Eildon girls should be proud of the way they continue to always come together as a team every-time they step foot onto the court. Q1. T/E 3 to W/M 7 Q2. T/E 9 to W/M 15 Q3. T/E 13 to W/M 24 Thornton 15 to Warburton 29 Best players: Maggie Rigby, Maddie Bernarski and Hannah Bingham. Next week will see our girls continue the home and away season playing at Yea against Yea Tigers. WOMEN’S FOOTBALL It was a typical winter’s day in Thornton with thick heavy fog engulfing the footy ground, but the sun broke through just in time for the crowd to arrive and teams to warm up. Thornton women were excited to play against Olinda, a new team to the league that have built a good friendly reputation. This was a high stakes game for both teams, both sitting with equal points on the ladder - the winners having the opportunity to be one step closer to participating in the finals. With this in mind, the focus for the Thornton team was communication, shepherding, and tackling hard. Right from the start both teams ran hard with solid pressure applied. Olinda had certainly done their research on the Thornton team placing solid tags on key players. The first quarter saw Olinda scoring two goals, Thornton pushing through to
their forward consistently but no reflection onto the scoreboard. After quarter time discussion our players hit second quarter with renewed focus and determination, resulting in neither team scoring. The third quarter saw Olinda secure another 2 goals - however, the drive and pressure from the Thornton players never dampened. The fourth quarter had the women determined to finish strong and give the supporters and sponsors something to cheer for a be proud of. The team gritted their teeth, laying some solid tackles and shepherds to protect their teammates. Although the team didn’t come through with a win, the atmosphere and support of sponsors and friends had our players feeling proud of their mighty efforts on the ground. he players are so grateful for the support they received on and off on Saturday, the crowd was as loud as it has ever been for this team - a great indication on the positive impact this club has had on our community.

Yea’s incredible contest Seniors Alexandra 8.11-59 drew with Yea 8.11-59 Yea has drawn with Alexandra in an incredible contest on the road. Despite the Tigers leading on the scoreboard by a point when the final siren sounded, the umpires determiend that both sides were actually locked at 59 points apiece. It was a close game all day, with nothingh seperating the teams at quarter time and the visitors holding a seven-point lead at half and three quarter time. Daniel Evans was exceptional in defence in the air and on the ground, while Aidan starred all over the ground and Mitchell Ryan put in another great performance down back. Harrison Jarvie and Adrian McCarthy ran riot in the midfield from start to finish, with Corbin Sutherland booted three goals and was a constant threat in attack. It was an outstanding effort by Yea, who have been building for the last month, espeically against a Rebels side that put them to the sword by 15 goals just a couple of months ago. The Tigers host Kinglake on Saturday. Goalkickers: C. Sutherland 3, H. Jarvie, X. O’Dwyer, P. Evans, A. McSpeerin Best Players: D. Evans, A. McCarthy, A. McSpeerin, C. Sutherland, H. Jarvie, P. Evans Reserves Alexandra 14.10-94 defeated Yea 0.3-3 In initally foggy conditions, Yea went down to Alexandra by 91 points on Saturday. It was a tough day at the office for the Tigers against a strong Rebels outfit that will feature promnently in the finals this year. Most of the damage was done in an eight goal to zero opening quarter blitz by the home side, but Yea managed to rally after the break and stem the bleeding, even keeping Alexandra scoreless in the last quarter. Eddie Neilson played a brlliant game, as did the ever consistent Hayden Witton, while Harry Fitzsimmons continued his good form.
Dylan Jannke battled hard in defence all day, Reece Hargeaves was impressive and Trent McMahon provided plenty of run and carry. The Tigers take on Kinglake at the Recreation Reserve this week. Best Players: E. Neilson, H. Witton, D. Jannke, T. McMahon, R. Hargreaves, H. Fitzsimons - Patrick Evans ★ JUNIOR NETBALL The sun shone on our Junior Tigers Netballers in Seymour last weekend. The Seymour Lions were fierce and the Under 11 match was a great contest. Both teams started strongly with the Tigers creeping out to a lead. In the last quarter Seymour pulled away to win 17 to 13. The Tigers Under 11s play so well together, they are consistent, hardworking and each member of the team is focussed on doing their job. Marmalade's Player of the Day- Charlotte Armstrong Just Coffee Well Done Award- Ruby McKay ★ The Under 13 Tigers had a fabulous start to the game, going into the first break leading 100. They worked together to win the game 19-8. Marmalade's Player of the Day- Sienna Porter Just Coffee Well Done Award- Lila McKay ★ The Under 15s continue to improve and get stronger every week. Their passages of play down the court make it look like the game is easy, hiding their hard work and beautiful timing. The beginning of the game was close, but the Tigers came out the winners. - Lauren Cronk
Local Sport Yea Junior Footy UNDER 9’s - Sam Porter & Al Tait It was a foggy start in Seymour but the sun managed to shine through for our second match up against the Seymour Lions. With great numbers again this week, we ran two games again led by Coaches Ian and Al. Thank you to Al for providing this week’s write up for one of our games. The boys started well despite Seymour playing four players to Yea’s 3 players a zone due to having extra kids from Auskick playing for them. Yea showed great drive out of the centre and driving the ball deep into the forward line with Angus kicking two quick goals and the Tigers we’re up and about. Seymour went forward but were met with a strong defence with Ashton, Darby and Toby J sending the ball straight back to Luke, Lachlan and Fynn in the centre with great play and determination the ball was sent back into Yea’s forward line with Jack, Angus and Toby G applying great skills to score again. With players being kept in certain positions in the last two weeks to gain their skills in their best playing positions there were minimal changes to the field in the second quarter with all the players being effective for this quarter the boys took it up another step and scored more than the opposition and took control of the game. After the long break and feed of fresh oranges the boys really took the skills up to Seymour with some decisions not going the Tigers way the guys stood strong and kept forcing the ball forward and scores kept going the young tigers way, at the last break coach Al asked the guys to stick to their game plan and keep applying pressure to which they did and they run the game out with great team play and courage which kept Tate busy waving his flags in the goals. Great game by all again today. Our young Tigers are certainly making our Coaches proud.

Want to hear about backyard hens? ■ By Giuliana Postregna of Talking Hens at Merricks: "Where the chicken AND egg come first!"
● Json gives his presentation on Backyard Hens.
■ The growing popularity of owning backyard hens has largely been due to families wanting to become more self-sustainable. So why is keeping backyard hens so good for your family? Well, hens make for fantastic pets. Our breed of hens are Hy-line Browns which are extremely friendl and placid. They love company and ike nothing more than to spend time interacting with their owners. We hear lots of entertaining sto ries from our customers such as thei hens going on school runs, on swings with the kids and happily jumping up onto their laps. Good egg-laying breeds like ou Hy-Line also quickly pay for them selves by providing your family with highly nutritious and delicious eggs throughout the year. Their eggs are high in protein and minerals but low in calories. You also have peace of mind knowing exactl how your hens are treated and wha food they have eaten. Of course, you can’t get more “lo cal” food than what you get from your own backyard. When combined with a vegetable garden, your family becomes fa more self-sufficient and able to live more sustainably. If you really had to avoid socia contact, your hens and vegetables could keep your household well fed over the long-term. Hen ownership also teaches chil dren some important, practical les sons about life. Not only do they need to be re sponsible for f eeding and providing water for their hens but they mus collect eggs daily and keep the coop clean and safe. Excess eggs can also be sold o given away to friends and neighbours which is a great way of benefiting others in your local community. Come visit us.

The Big End Of Town was third a half head away after following the winner home.
Beaten for speed ■ Shepparton raced on Wednesday with a 10 event card and 5Y0 Auckland Reactor-Lady President mare Presidentslastlady showed her liking for the track when victorious in the Alabar Pace (1st Division) over 2190 metres.

The mile rate 200.3. Presidentslastlady’s last five starts on the track have resulted in two wins, two seconds and a fourth. ■ Seven year old Rock N Roll Heaven-Full Pleasure gelding Letsrockletsroll was a brilliant winner of the 1690 Neatline Homes Pace for Avenel trainer David Aiken and stable “apprentice” Cody Crossland in a mile rate of 1-58.4. Starting from gate three on the second line, Letsrockletsroll settled four back in the moving line as polemarker Tritttrittbangbang led setting a moderate speed for Shannon O’Sullivan.

PRAYER MACHINE ■ Red Stitch Actors Theatre presents Prayer Machine an original play by Melbourne playwright Eric Gardiner, from August 4 -29 at Red Stitch's theatre in Chapel St, Prahran. Developed as part of Red Stitch’s INK Writers Program, the play marries hypnotic black comedy with a tender exploration of ageing and missed connection. A pair of high-school lovers reunite in the twilight of middle age. They make dreams, plans, and reenactments. They try to remember, and they try to forget. Who can face a wasted life? No-one looks at strangers. No-one pays attention. ‘Cos attention is a weapon, now. Short and Sharp. People keep it locked up in rifle cases for special occasions. In a place where the twin addictions of nostalgia and technology collide, how can you love somebody who isn’t really there? Prayer Machine is directed by Krystalla Pearce (She is Vigilante) and performed by Joe Petruzzi (American Song, Fury) and Patrick Williams (FiveBedrooms, Rosehaven,The Bodyguard) with set and costume design by Bethany J Fellows, lighting design by Rachel Lee, and sound design and composition by Amy Holley.

● Leah Phillips ■ While most singers have been struggling for work in this time of COVID, for young Melbourne soprano Leah Phillips, 2021 has been a year of kicking some major singing goals. Leah won the prestigious Boroondara Eisteddfod Vocal Championship, and earlier in the year she won the OSA Opera Scholar of the Year aria competition, performing an aria from Mozart's opera Idomeneo. She sang the same aria and a lied by Gustav Mahler in the Boroondara final, accompanied by her friend and colleague Christopher Wong at the piano. Leah is also a GJ Studio Young Artist with the Australian Contemporary Opera Company, and she is currently in rehearsals for The Enchanted Pig, which opens at Melbourne's Athenaeum Theatre on July 29. Leah is enthusiastic about the importance of eisteddfods for young singers. "Over the years I've grown so much as a singer through competing in eisteddfods. I first performed in the choral section of the Boroondara Eisteddfod when I was in Year 10 with Canterbury Girls' Secondary College Chorale, and I'm pretty sure we won too," Leah laughed. As the Boroondara Vocal Championship adjudicator, Australian expatriate singer Helena Dix was on hand to encourage all the talented young singers in the final, and Leah was glad to soak up Helena's knowledge and advice, while performing in an eisteddfod she has always loved. "I feel quite sentimental about winning the Vocal Championship all these years later, and I'm so grateful to have received such positive and constructive feedback from adjudicator Helena Dix," Leah said. Like many young singers in the early stages of their careers, Leah also has a day job, as Marketing and Communications Officer at the Australian Music Examinations Board. Leah will be performing in a Christmas concert with Julie Houghton and Friends on December 4 in Canterbury, and there is no doubt that you are going to hear a lot more of this talented soprano who is really going places. - Kathy Kohner

Reviews Still ■ Still examines the aftermath of a tragedy. Morgan, a 41-year-old professor of etymology, has recently given birth to a stillborn son. Morgan was attended by midwife Elena in a home birth when something went drastically wrong. Rushed to hospital for the birth, the hospital has mislaid the baby, adding more trauma to the grieving mother. The baby, Constantinople, although dead, is searching for his mother. In his wandering, Constantinople meets a young dominatrix, Dolores. Dolores helps Constantinople, the dead baby, compose a letter to his mother. Time is ticking. Constantinople only has a short window of time to locate his mother before he decomposes altogether. It is up to Dolores to find Morgan. Midwife Elena, meanwhile, has sought out Dolores for punishment in the form of flagellation to atone for her mistake. This is a decidedly strange play about grief. Bizarre and sometimes inexplicable, director Sarah Vickery’s excellent cast do their best to make sense of it. Joey Lai brings a wide-eyed innocence to Constantinople, the dead baby. Bethany Fellows costume for Constantinople deserves a special mention. Emerging from clear plastic covered in sticky slime gave Lai a luminescence and otherworldly quality that greatly enhanced the believability. Sara Bolch brings a vulnerability to Dolores, a character that could easily descend into cartoon. Joanne Booth brings believability to Morgan, the grieving mother. All she wants is what is unattainable: answers to questions of blame, guilt and culpability. Elisa Armstrong as Elena travels a whacky journey from midwife to dominatrix without really addressing the crux of her situation. Nevertheless, this play is interesting, heartrending and funny in equal parts, even if ultimately, it doesn’t answer any of the questions it raises. - Review by Kathryn Keeble
Still ■ The stillbirth of a baby is formidable territory for any playwright but Jen Silverman’s Still, highlights not only the tragedy of such a loss but the guilt, grief, anxiety and myriad choices women can experience when faced with pregnancy, motherhood and the desire for connection. Her use of theatrical absurdity allows for a darkly comic element balancing the heartache with humour. The mature aged pregnancy of single mother, 41 year old Morgan (Joanne Booth) and the home birth she wanted has not gone according to plan leaving midwife, Elena (Elisa Armstrong) facing sanctions and a loss of licence to practice. Meanwhile, the pregnant teenager Dolores (Sara Bolch) survives by working as a dominatrix. She encounters Constantinople (Joseph Lai), the child Morgan delivered, who, though dead, searches for his mother. Their four lives intersect in strangely revealing and comic ways. Wearing only a nappy, Joseph’s gangly frame embodies the very absurdity Silverman is after. Disproportionate in size, the lost child is given a voice in awe of the world and what it contains. This is juxtaposed against pyjama clad Morgan’s depression and grief. Elena seeks a form of punishment having found Dolores and her service on the internet to expiate her failure. The fact that Dolores is pregnant is, perhaps, reason enough for her ability to communicate with Constantinople and she finds a connection with Morgan even though she is considering an abortion. The simple set and lighting (Bethany Fellows and Gabriel Bethune) with a rectangular tarpaulin setting the boundaries of the performance space means that director, Sarah Vickery, has concentrated the focus on the words and actions of the performers. They provide the intensity. Silverman’s use of the absurd has made it possible to address the incomprehensible. We don’t always find the answers but Heartstring Theatre has effectively allowed for that negotiation between the audience and the subject matter to take place. The topic is raw and the performances provocative and revealing. Still was presented at fortyfivedownstairs. - Review by David McLean

Moments In Time ■ Magic has entertained and amazed audiences for centuries and while it has taken many spectacular forms, think Harry Houdini’s incredible escapes or David Copperfield’s miraculous illusions, the humble card trick, done well, continues to flabbergast and leave audiences dumbstruck. Enter Josh Staley with his bag (and box) of magic card tricks and a wry sense of humour, performing Moments in Time as part of the Melbourne Magic Festival. Staley likes to play with your mind and it’s hard not to think you might just have witnessed real magic. He taunts the audience with his questions of free will versus destiny – and asks, had we chosen another card, or if at that moment we chose a different number, would his tricks have worked? There is no doubt that Staley is a skilled card trickster – and as any member of the audience would attest, a keen eye was kept on his every move – there was literally nothing up his sleeve as they were rolled up for most of the performance. He is not afraid of close-up magic and very good at it - how he did what he did remains a complete mystery and his talent, well simply magical – literally. The small and intimate venue, The Close-Up Gallery at Arrow on Swanston, was perfect and enabled Staley to interact closely with the
● Magician Josh Staley audience, and was at the same time, not too overwhelming for his many audience volunteer assistants. His rapport with his volunteers was so good that it was almost like they became good friends. Staley is a quirky performer, magicians generally are, and he used humour, and a few props, to great effect. His personal stories about how he became so curious about magic and his love of a particular magic shop were endearing. A mind-blowing and fun show, guaranteed to have you come away asking, “how did he do that?” - Review by Beth Klein
What’s On Seeing Eye Dogs ■ Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs and The Petbarn Foundation have partnered again to encourage Australians to lend a helping paw and raise much-needed funds to assist people who are blind or have low vision. For the second year running, the annual Seeing Eye Dogs Puppy Games will see Seeing Eye Dogs pups-in-training Chessy, Frieda, Isobel and Ivory tackle a series of skill-testing challenges, with their every move captured on camera. Who will take home the gold? Comedians Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann and Adam Rozenbachs return to commentate the ultimutt battle, the thrills and the spills as our four elite canine athletes hurtle through a Dog Ninja Warrior time trial, take on a ‘puppy patience’ food challenge, fight their natural instincts in the 'dogstacle distraction course' and more. The Seeing Eye Dogs Puppy Games will be streamed on July 22 at 1pm on www.thepuppygames.com.au While the finely tuned Seeing Eye Dogs puppies will be eager to demonstrate their superior co-ordination skills and athletic prowess, their efforts are all in support of a greater good – to raise much-needed funds to assist people who are blind or have low vision. Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs General Manager Graeme Craig says, “Our partnership with The Petbarn Foundation is vital to helping us provide Seeing Eye Dogs to those that need them. “Our Seeing Eye Dogs pups require significant training and it takes a lot of expertise, time, love, patience and funding to raise these special dogs that will one day become the gift of independence for people who are blind or have low vision,” The Petbarn Foundation Manager, Janelle Bloxsom says:“We are excited to be embarking upon our eighth Seeing Eye Dogs Appeal, and truly hope that Petbarn and its generous community will together reach the milestone of 100 dogs this year to support blind and vision impaired Australians,” she said. Australians can show their support for this worthy cause by visiting Petbarn and City Farmers stores from July 1 – August 1 or by tuning in to the Seeing Eye Dogs Puppy Games on July 22 at 1pm at www.thepuppygames.com.au Vision Australia is the leading national provider of blindness and low vision services and advocacy support for the blindness and low vision community. The Seeing Eye Dogs provide people who are blind or have low vision with independence, enabling them to live the life they choose.

Help with stranded Aussies
■ Hi everyone, from my suite at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites comes this week's news.
Out and About
Heroes offer support
■ It has been a difficult period with COVID-19 locking Australians into foreign countries with little help of getting home. There have been many sad stories of sick loved ones and people desperately trying all avenues to get back home. Some airfares have been quoted as high as $35,000 and then there is the two-week quarantine to cope with. You have seen all the sad stories of severe desperation on your local television. The Australian Government is doing the best it can and also the local consulate is also giving assistance. Two Aussies of note who are giving support and advice to Australians trapped in America are the Managing Director of the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites in West Hollywood, Alan Johnson, and in Santa Monica, ‘Lady H’ Julie Hardinge. By using all their circle of business leaders and close friends many ex-pats have been helped in the huge process of eventually getting a flight home.
New charge in the US
● Pictured at an Aussie get together in West Hollywood are ‘Lady H, Julie Hardinge; with Ramada chief Alan Johnson; and Countdown Motion Pictures CEO, Gavin Wood.
Early Birds benefit ■ If you are a morning person, you may be at reduced risk for major depression, a new study in America suggests. Several studies of the body's circadian sleep-wake cycle have shown that being an early bird is associated with a lower risk for depression. But those studies were observational so could not prove cause and effect. For example, people who are early birds may have other health or lifestyle behaviours that reduce their risk for depression they may have a healthier diet. For example, exercise more, or have fewer health conditions, such as chronic pain, that are associated with depression. All these factors, and many others, could explain the decreased risk for depression, and not the fact of being an early bird. Moreover, depression itself causes sleep disturbances, so it could be that depression is a cause of being a night owl, rather than the other way around. The new study, however, offers more compelling evidence that going to bed early and waking early may, in itself, provide protection against depression, independent of other factors. The study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, uses a research method called Mendelian randomisation that helps pinpoint the cause of what may be a cause-and-effect relationship. With Mendelian randomisation, researchers can compare large groups of people based on genetic variants that are independent of other health or behavioural characteristics in this case, the tendency to being a night owl or a morning person, inherited traits that are randomly allocated during our development in the womb. More than 340 genetic variants associated with circadian sleep rhythm have been identified, and the researchers can compare large groups of people with the genetic variants for being a morning person with groups that lack them. Nature has, in essence, set up the randomised experiment for them.

CNN ratings drop
■ The ratings of CNN's Reliable Sources plunged to their lowest level of the year this weekend, even as host Brian Stelter continues to dedicate every episode to criticising the credibility of Fox News. In all, his show has lost 72 per cent of its viewers since its high point on January 10. The new figures came one week after Stelter all but begged White House spokesperson Jen Psaki to tell him how his network could better conform its coverage to the Biden administration's talking points. The latest episode of Stelter's show failed to attract one million viewers for the 11th week in a row. A mere 752,000 total viewers tuned in to watch Stelter critique the media usually heavily focused on the more successful Fox News on Sunday. That's down from a peak of 2.7 million viewers following the January 6 Capitol riot. CNN's ratings have steadily contracted ever since the breach breathed life into its sagging viewership. Stelter attracted 1.3 million viewers in February, 1.02 million in March, 917,000 in April, and 836,000 in May.
■ "Where should we eat tomorrow?" my wife asked me excitedly as we sat on our deck Friday evening. She had locked down a babysitter for Saturday night, and we were both eager for our first dinner date alone together in months. "Broders'," I answered without hesitation. Located in southwest Minneapolis, Broders Pasta Bar is a local gem. It has a great outdoor patio and the best Italian cuisine in the Twin Cities. We had not eaten there since the pandemic began. My wife nodded and started to make a reservation on her phone. Then her jaw dropped. "You're not going to like this," she said. An Equity Charge? She was right. On its website, Broders' has a notice to customers notifying them of a new 15 per cent "benefits and equity" charge they've instituted. They justify the charge, first, by explaining that "many states have allowed reduced minimum wages for service staff in the form of a tip credit." Went to book a reservation at my favourite restaurant in the City, Broders' and was informed all customers were being charged a 15 per cent "equity" charge. Instead of just paying their employees more, Broders has decided to inform customers they are too racist/sexist to tip properly. The restaurant's second justification is that many tippers are racist and sexist, according to uncited research. - Contributed
■ Ringo Starr has dropped a legal claim against a Californian sex toy manufacturer after challenging its bid to trademark the name Ring O. Lawyers for the 81-year-old Beatles drummer had argued that the name was "identical in appearance, sound, connotation and pronunciation" to Ringo's name, which is already protected by trademark and he feared the association could damage his legendary reputation. But Starr has now settled with Screaming O, which uses the Ring O name for a line of cock rings. The company agreed to "avoid any activity likely to lead to confusion" and promised to use the name only for adult sex toys and desensitizing aids, keeping a clear gap between the 'Ring' and the 'O'.
Taliban is back ■ The Taliban have seized control of a third of Afghanistan as they continue to accelerate their blitz offensive while the US continues to withdraw their forces. The US has spent nearly $1trillion on the 20-year battle trying to stave off the terror group who are fighting to gain ultimate control over the wartorn country. The Taliban has been on tenterhooks to forge ahead with their scheme since President Joe Biden announced the withdrawal of troops back in April and have since continued at "lightning speed". Jihadist forces have now advanced across rural areas, putting them in reaching distance of major cities such as Herat and Kabul. A US intelligence report warned they could take the capital, Kabul, within six months.

■ An expert panel told Coronavirus Committee Republicans that hundreds of thousands of lives could have been saved if China acted transparently earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic. "Whether it was laboratory derived or natural, if we would've had open access the moment it started spreading, we could've saved lives," Adm. Brett Giroir told the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis during the Tuesday panel. "If we could've known about asymptomatic transmission two months beforehand, it could've saved hundreds of thousands of lives," Giroir said. Giroir, a former assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services during the Trump administration, was one of four experts on a panel convened by the Coronavirus Committee to discuss the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic. No Democratic members of the committee attended the hearing, and both NIH director Dr. Francis Collins and NIAID director Dr Anthony Fauci reportedly turned down invites to the hearing.

Magazine ■ Vaughn Monroe was a tall and handsome man who became a very popular American singer, trumpeter, bandleader and actor. Vaughn Wilton Monroe was born in Akron, Ohio in 1911. His mother named her son after her two favourite movie stars from the silent films, Vaughn Glasser and Wilton Lackaye. Vaughn was a descendant of President James Monroe. His father was a research engineer in the rubber industry and the family moved around quite a bit. Vaughn learned to play the trumpet at the age of 10. He was in the school band at Jeannette High School in Pennsylvania and wrote the school alma mater which is still sung today. Vaughn graduated in 1929 and worked with several bands before forming his own orchestra in Boston. His first recording of There I Go spent three weeks at the top of the hit parade and his orchestra was named top college band in 1940. Later that year he married Marian Baughman and they had two daughters Candy and Christina. Vaughn built a restaurant and nightclub which he named The Meadows in Massachusetts from which he hosted a live weekly radio program. Vaughn Monroe acted in films during his career including Meet The People, Carnegie Hall, Singing Guns and The Toughest Man in Ari-
Whatever Happened To ... Vaughn Monroe By Kevin Trask of 3AW and 96.5 Inner FM zona. In 1949 Vaughn co-authored The Adventures of Mr. Putt Putt, a children's book about airplanes and flying. He had his own television series in 1950. His signature tune was Racing With the Moon and his hit songs over the years included There! I've Said It Again, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!, Mule Train, Tangerine, Ballerina, Sound Off and (Ghost) Riders in the Sky. One of his regrets was that he turned down an opportunity to record Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. In 1953 Vaughn gave up his band and started working as a solo artist on the nightclub circuit. He came to Melbourne in 1965 and performed at the Savoy/Menzies Hotels.
graciously went back into the studio to do it all over again. In his later years Vaughn remained with RCA records working as a TV spokesman, executive, and talent scout. Vaughn Monroe died in Florida during 1973 after undergoing major surgery for a respiratory ailment. Marian passed away in 2013. Earlier this year his daughters were in attendance as the Jeannette High School dedicated their new auditorium in honour of Vaughn Monroe. The plaque reads: "Jeannette High School Auditorium Dedication Honouring Vaughn Wilton Monroe, Class of 1929, whose legacy as a legendary singer, big-band leader and creator of both music and lyrics for the Jeannette High School Alma Mater will be remembered by many generations to come." I have a three disc CD of the songs of Vaughn Monroe and I enjoy listening to his body of work. He had four gold records during his career and has been awarded two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Kevin Trask Kevin can be heard on 3AW The Time Tunnel - Remember When Sundays at 10.10pm with Philip Brady ● Vaughn Moore and Simon Owens.

Movies, DVDs with Jim Sherlock, Aaron Rourke What’s Hot and What’s Not FILM: THE TOMORROW WAR (Streaming on Prime Video): G e n r e : Action/Sci-Fi/War. Cast: Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, J.K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson. Year: 2021. Rating: 1 6 + . Length: 140 Minutes. Stars: * * * Review: A sci-fi action adventure of scientists who have figured out how to draft soldiers from the past to fight in a war against an invading alien force - but the fate of humanity will rest on a family man who is drafted to fight in the future war where the fate of humanity relies on his ability to confront the past. As far as big budget, sci-fi, action-packed, time travelling creature features go, this one ticks all the boxes, a big, dumb, fun monster mash of "The Terminator" meets "Aliens" meets "Edge of Tomorrow" meets "War of the Worlds" meets "Independence Day" meets "The Thing," and numerous other more intelligent offerings from the mix of genres that pulls it all together, but most importantly, for a good part it works, however, you will be required to throw all logic out the window and just don't try too hard to figure it all out. Chris Pratt goes through all the Arnold Schwarzenegger school of emotions as our heroic protagonist, more effective running, jumping and shooting aliens, and is supported effectively by Aussie actress Yvonne Strahovski, Oscar winner J.K. Simmons and Sam Richardson, however, the real stars here are the hundreds of CGI experts and creature designers who all combined to create the eye popping and jaw dropping creatures, action and special effects. A big, exciting, corny, loud, silly and delightfully in-your-face popcorn crunching thrill ride with an abundance of humour, along with pathos and poignancy along the way, and when all is said and done, a giant pizza sized slice of big budget creature-feature entertainment that has been entertaining audiences for generations and will continue to do so for generations to come. FILM: BLACKBIRD (Now on DVD and Streaming on Google Play & AppleTV): Genre: Drama. Cast: Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, Kate Winslet, Mia Wasikowska. Year: 2019. Rating: M . Length: 97 Minutes. Stars: * * * Review: A terminally ill mother with ALS disease arranges to bring her family together one last time before she dies. A remake of the 2014 Danish film "Silent Heart," a genuinely affecting and deeply emotional tale that covers adult themes with maturity, humour and overall intelligence without sugar-coating, being shamelessly manipulative or falling into cliché as a result of its sensitive subject matter, a quietly affecting melodrama that allows audiences to journey through with their own layers of emotion as the real conflicts and opinions seep in without layers of stereotypical drivel enter the frame. Directed with great respect and sensitivity by Roger Michell, whose other credits include "Notting Hill" (1999), "Hyde Park on Hudson" (2012), "My Cousin Rachel" (2017), and "Nothing Like A Dame" (2018), to name a few, the stellar cast includes Susan Sarandon as the dying matriarch of the family, Sam Neill as the husband, along with Kate Winslet, Mia Wasikowska, Rainn Wilson and Anson Boon, they all shine in their respective roles equally with a mellifluous yet apprehensive or unsettled quality as the family in crisis come to terms with the inevitable and unavoidable outcome. All filmed in and around a breathtaking isolated sea front location in West Sussex in England, this is a well told and simple bittersweet tale that remains emotionally effectively on balance throughout, a difficult task at the best of times considering its subject matter, a poignant, entertaining, funny, tragic, melancholic and ultimately thought provoking and haunting story of family, opinions, choices and decisions that ultimately reminds us of the importance family, relationships and ultimately the brevity and fragility of life. *ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis): A nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function.

Top 10 Lists
Rourke’s Reviews The Tomorrow War ■ (M). 138 minutes. Now streaming on Netflix. Despite a script that is a shameless hodgepodge of a number of other, better sci-fi films (Pacific Rim, The Terminator, The Thing, Alien, Predator, Independence Day, to name a few), this big budget extravaganza proves to be mildly entertaining, even if it leaves the memory soon after the end credits have finished. Chris Pratt stars as Dan Forrester, your typical everyman who has to help lead an attack against aliens who are slaughtering earth's population. The only thing is, Dan and his motley crew have to travel from present day 2022 to 2052, when the invasion is at its peak. Helping him in the future is scientist Muri (Yvonne Strahovski). The twists are easy to pick, and the derivative nature of the story soon takes its toll, not helped by pretty one-dimensional characters. Pratt (Guardians Of The Galaxy) is a likeable screen presence, but finds it hard to rise above the empty noise, while J.K. Simmons can play the gruff role given to him in his sleep. Director Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie) tries to keep everything glossy and loud, but his transition from animated to liveaction features is competent but hardly memorable. RATING - **½
Werewolves Within ■ (MA). 96 minutes. Now showing in selected cinemas. Based on a video game I admittedly have never heard of, this slick horror/comedy is good fun for quite a while, before its limited story mechanics start to take hold. The quiet, snowy town of Beaverfield sees the arrival of new park ranger Finn Wheeler (Sam Richardson, who can also be seen in The Tomorrow War), an honest, by-the-book person who has just unwittingly separated from his girlfriend. Meeting the weird and eccentric townsfolk via mail person Cecily (Milana Vayntrub), Finn is soon faced with an unusual case when he and a number of others are trapped within the local inn by something unknown, something that could be a lycanthrope. With the power out, the group have to deal with each other as much as the deadly predator hunting them down one by one. What gives Werewolves Within its spark is its willingness to underplay the situation, giving the cast
the chance to make an impression without having to go over-the-top from scene one. Richardson is fine as Finn, as is Vayntrub as Cecily. Director Josh Ruben, whose first film, Scare Me (****), was a winner when released last year (it's currently streaming on Shudder), again shows his love for character interplay and humorously verbal exchanges. It is only when the story elements are threaded together that the movie loses steam, but not enough to stop making this small film an enjoyable night out at the movies. RATING - ***
Hitman’s Wife Bodyguard ■ (MA). 99 minutes. Now showing in cinemas. Deplorable excuse for a movie, a noisy and obnoxious sequel to the surprisingly successful 2017 original. The trio from the original, Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds), Darius Kincaid (Samul L. Jackson) and his wife Sonia (Salma Hayek), are back, this time involved in an instantly forgettable plot involving Aristotle Papdopolous (Antonio Banderas). Also on board is Morgan Freeman, in a highly contrived and predictable subplot. Sonia was a headache-inducing ear sore the first time around, so of course she is given more screen time in the sequel, and Hayek's shrill performance sums up the movie as a whole. Incredibly cruel and bloody for what is supposed to be a comedy, with dozens of innocent bystanders ending up as collateral damage amongst all the non-stop gunplay. Reynolds' ad-lib schtick is an acquired taste at the best of times, but he seems to be running on fumes here, delivering a continuous stream of limp one-liners. Jackson is in complete cruise control, yelling and cursing to the back row, while showing little interest in the material handed to him. The only amusing joke is a reference to a particular 80's Goldie Hawn comedy. Aussie director Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) swings for the fences in amateurish fashion, as he did in the first film, turning everything up to 20 hoping an incessantly high volume and constant barrage of violent (but badly staged) action will hide the complete lack of genuine humour, exciting action, or even a single drop of humanity.

■ Aboriginal students, families and the wider northern suburbs community are benefitting from a boost to accessible, culturally appropriate community spaces and training facilities with the redeveloped Bubup Wilam Centre. Gabrielle Williams, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, last week officially opened the $682,000 redevelopment in Thomastown, which will enable Bubup Wiliam to expand its programs and resources and provide safe spaces for Aboriginal residents to connect to culture. The redeveloped facility includes a new library and dining room, an extra break away space for specialist learning, and the creation of a sustainable outdoor space for year-round events. Bubup Wilam is a self-determined, community controlled Aboriginal organisation that provides education, health and wellbeing programs for Aboriginal children aged between six months and eight years, their families and communities. The organisation has evolved into an Aboriginal Early Years Centre for Excellence and a registered training organisation since opening its doors in 2012, and continues to deliver on its purpose to support strong and proud Aboriginal identities, underpinned by self-determination. The Aboriginal Community Infrastructure Program supports organisations to improve cultural

connectedness, delivery of services to communities, health and wellbeing, and education and economic participation for communities. The program has supported 60 community infrastructure projects since 2017, providing eligible Aboriginal organisations with almost $20 million in funding to complete their works. The Victorian Budget 2021-22 delivered a further investment of almost $19 million for Aboriginal organisations seeking fit-for-purpose and culturally responsive infrastructure to ensure they can continue serving their communities. Bubup Wilam also received $367,000 in funding in 2020-21 under the COVID-19 Aboriginal Community Response and Recovery Fund to provide social and emotional wellbeing support for families and staff of Bubup Wilam. “We’re backing Aboriginal community infrastructure projects to ensure families can access the culturally safe spaces and other infrastructure they need to come together, and access the vital services they need to thrive,” said Gabrielle Williams, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs. “Guided by the self-determination, we’re delivering record funding to empower Aboriginal Victorians wherever they live, improving their health and safety and maintaining connections to community, culture and Country.”

Number of favourites in Golden Rose classic
■ A number of runners in the Golden Rose classic for three-years-olds to be run at Rosehill on September 26, have been well backed. The money has come for the opening favourite, Anamoe, in the strong camp of the James Cummings team. As mentioned in another of my columns, the Cummings stable feels that he should be rated as the best three-year old in the land. He showed his class with his big win in the Inglis Sires over 1400 metres. At that stage, from seven start,s he had recorded three wins, with two seconds and a third, including a placing in the Golden Slipper. He is definitely the one to beat. He is impeccably bred, being by the leading sire, Street Boss. Another they have come for is the smart Stay Inside, who blitzed them in the Golden Slipper in a top-class field. He is with the Freedman Brothers who need no introduction, but Richard and Michael are part of the Freedman clan, along with elder brothers, Lee and Anthony Freedman, who have between them won many a classic. Lee has capturedc five Melbourne Cups, two with Makybe Diva, plus Doriemus, Subzero and Tawriffic. Stay Inside won brilliantly over the 1200 metres of the Golden Slipper after the favourite, Profiteer, got away with a handy break. Like the Cummings camp, the Freedmans, are confident they have a good horse looking at the big plums after this race. Another smart colt is Converge, prepared by Gai Waterhouse and Andrew Bott. By the champion English stallion, Frankel, he was backed heavily to win the coveted J.J.Atkins Plate over 1600 metres. He won like a really good horse eased up by his rider, Tim Clark, in the last 200 metres. Some big bets have been laid on him to win the Golden Rose, and he has got to be a big chance. The Blue Diamond Stakes winner this year, Artorius, must have a show after his brilliant win in the Blue Diamond. Another smart colt going around is the Peter and Paul Snowden colt, Captivant. He won like a really good horse when beating Hilal and Converge, in the Champagne Stakes at Randwick back in April. He contested the Golden Slipper, but was never out of trouble in the race, before finishing a good fifth. The James Cummings-trained Ingratiating is a good type, and was runner-up in the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield back in February and was a good third in the Golden Slipper behind Anamoe. In one respect it is a quite open event with a number of chances.
● Ingratiating after winning at Flemington.Racing Photos. The Program, which will be trialled throughout the remainder of 2021, is open to thoroughbreds that are listed as active or spelling on their stable return, and have been domiciled in Victoria for a minimum of here months after nominating for the program Three prominent Victorian veterinary practices are participating in the six-month trial which commenced on July 1.. They are the U-Vet Werribee Equine Centre, Ballarat Veterinary Practice Equine Clinic and the Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital. To be eligible for the Program, and owner or a trainer, must have their horse undergo a lameness examination by a veterinarian. If the horse presents with lameness, then it can be considered for the program, with an analysis of the examination results, and the horse's history conducted by the veterinarian to

■ Racing Victoria is helping owners and trainers to offset the cost of advanced diagnostic imaging on Victorian thoroughbreds. They have offered to help with the costs involved. As part of the sport's proactive approach
determine if and what advanced diagnostic imaging is required. The owner or trainer of an eligible horse, will ultimately be able to recoup 50 per cent of their costs (a potential saving of up to $1600) when accessing advanced diagnostic imaging for the nominated horse through a participating practice. This includes scintigraphy (bone screening), magnetic resonance (MRI) (high field/standing) and computed tomography (CT). To help the owner or trainer cover the cost of their initial assessment, they will also be eligible for a special assessment subsidy of up to $300, upon referral by the veterinarian to one of three participating practices. Furthermore, an additional subsidy of up to $200 for a horse requiring hospitalisation for a minimum of one overnight stay, at one of the program's participating practices will also be available to the owner or trainer. For those horses approved to enter the program, these subsidies will be rebated by the participating practice delivering the service, with the balance of the costs to be met by the owner or trainer, as traditionally occurs. The Diagnostic Imaging Subsidy Program is made possible by the Victorian racing industry's $25 million Equine Welfare Fund courtesy of a two per cent prizemoney contribution by racing participants and the Industry's sustainability fund. MRI uses magnetic fields and resistance to create high-quality three-dimensional images of bone, fluid, and soft tissue. MRI shows an image of the physical change occurring during injury or disease. Multiple images are collected of the area of concern. All standing MRI units are low field, so those images have less detail than high-field MRI and CT. - Ted Ryan
to injury prevention, the Diagnostic Imaging Subsidy Program has been launched to help minimise the risk of serious injuries the thoroughbred horses by using advanced veterinary technology for early detection and intervention.
