■ EXTREMELY wet weather did not deter crowds from attending local ANZAC Day observances yesterday (Tues.), honouring those who served, and died in military conflicts. The services did not celebrate triumphs or victory. Rather the local gatherings were solemn remembrances of those who who had put themselves in harm’s way, and those who continue to serve.

● Doug Lawson. Photo: Ash Long ■ The Glenburn and Yea districts are mourning the passing of local community volunteer, Doug Lawson, on Wednesday last week (Apr. 19) at age 91. A service is being held at 2pm today (Wed., Apr. 26) at William Matthews Funerals, Lilydale, prior to private cremation. Douglas Perth Lawson was born in September 1925, a member of a respected local family, with grandparents settling in the district in 1895. Doug’s grandfather was an engineer with the Shire of Yea from 1914-1923. One of the family’s early farming pursuits was in dairying, predominant in the Glenburn area in the era. Doug supplemented his farm income, by providing stock transport for other district farmers. He and Betty (nee Tull) married on June 2, 1951, raising son Geoffrey and daughter Sharon, and followed by grandchildren Lisa and Wayne. ● Continued on Page 12

CFA-related issue won at Tribunal ■ Concerns by the Country Fire Authority about bushfire management have meant that Michael Drapac will be unable to subdivide land at Hurstbridge in the way that he wants. Drapac took the Nillumbik Shire Council decision to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, but lost. Drapac has a 15.1 lot at 43 Haleys Gully Rd, Hurstbridge, which comprises two lots of similar size in a different configuration. The Council opposed the grant of a permit, saying that it has not been adequately demonstrated that the subdivision will not instensify bushfire risk to people and property. Drapac objected, saying the realigned boundary results in no change to the physical circumstances of the land.

● Cr Eric Lording ■ Murrindindi Shire Council will be asked tonight (Wed.) to budget $100,000 to address the local European Wasp plague. Cr Eric Lording is planning to make a request of his fellow Councillors. “There has been Australia-wide reporting of the wasp problem in Yea with commendations that caravaners and tourists avoid Yea and other areas of the Shire between Christmas and mid-April,” Cr Lording says. “This could prove disastrous to the local tourist trade, thereby damaging the economy of the Shire for quite some time to come. “Healesville has reported a downturn in tourism this year as a result of their wasp problem.”

Works needed ■ Cr Lording says that all Council street and other bins should be modified to take a well-sealing, auto shutting lid. Cr Lording recommends the hire of a harmonic radar system and diode sensors to track wasps returning to their hives. Councillors will be asked to employ suitable contractors to seek out and destroy Queen Wasps in Aug-

ust to September times, and then to spray hives as they are found in the new year. Cr Lording recommends regular spraying if transfer stations and land fill sites by experts. He says that Murrindindi Shire should advertise widely that aa comprehensive wasp eradication program in the next 3-5 years in an efort to ensure tourists do not avoid the Shire. Cr Lording says Murrindindi needs to be seen as leading the way in wasp eradication programs.

● Margaret Abbey, CEO, Murrindindi Shire Council ■ A report due to be presented to Murrindindi Shire’s meeting tonight (Wed.) confirms that the Council is due to lose $1 million in the current financial year. “Council’s revised budget for 2016-17 is now forecasting an operating deficit of $1.13 million,” says the Quarterly Financial Report due to be presented to Councillors. “It should be noted that the 2016-17 revised budget has been significantly impacted by the $800,000 reduction in Commonwealth capital grant funding that was initially budget to be received in 2016-17 under the Roads To Recovery program,” the report said. Receipts from rates and charges have been $37,000 less than anticipated this financial year, “although some supplementary valuations are still be processed:, Councillors are being advised. Council officers say that “unfavourable” fee receipts are components in the budget reults: waste disposal receipts are $26,000 less than planned; home care revenue is $38,000 less; and property maintenance figures are $13,000 down on expected totals.

Concerns over NBN ■ Alexandra SES Unit Controller Peter Weeks made a submission last week to the National Broadband Network hearing at Wodonga last Thursday (Apr. 20). Mr Weeks, who is a member of local Municipal Emergency Management Committees, said there was concern about the NBN’s limited battery backup life during emergencies. “Loss of power at the home or business results in not only loss of internet but also telephone as well. “Currently the copper telephone service is powered from the telephone exchange and loss of mains power does not affect the service,” M r Weeks told the hearing. “When mains power is lost, NBN creates multiple points

● Peter Weeks of failure between telephone exchange and customer after a very short time, due to limited batteru backup, leaving customers with no internet when it is needed the most in an emergency,” Mr Weeks said of theNBN fibre to the node service. Mr Weeks said that when mains power is lost, NBN again creates multiple points of failure between telephone exchange and customer as many base stations are linked together by wireless

links from other NBN ase stations. “So a power failure anywhere along the link chain will cause failures and loss of NBN from that point onwards, and in many cases not just local but wide area failure.” Mr Weeks had a warning for the NBN: “If during emergencies it is planned to use portable back-up generators to maintain power to the NBN wireless base stations (if this is even a current option) may be difficult as in many cases NBN may not be able to access the disaster area for many reasons, such as road closures and fires in the vicinty.” MrWeeks said reliance on wireless in many rural and country areas is too great. This was the case in Alexandra, MrWeeks told the hearing.

■ The monthly meeting of the Murrindindi Shire Council will be held at 6pm tonight (Wed.) at the chambers in Perkins St, Alexandra. The following month’s meeting is scheduled to be held at Yea at 6pm on Wednesday, May 24.

William McPherson Wilson was born on July 7, 1931, and he had been baptised at St Luke’s Church, Yea, some 85 years earlier, the congregation was told. Daughter Jude said: “William McPherson Wilson was born on July 7, 1931 to William Stanley and Elsie May Wilson. “He and his siblings Shirley and Graham were raised at 108 High St. “He attended Yea Primary and Yea High School and was an altar boy here at St Luke’s where he met his wife Valerie. “He left school to work with the postal service and went on to work with his father who was a carpenter and bridge builder. “Bill married Valerie Callander in 1952 and they had five children: Peter, Robert, John, Jude and Karen. “Bill was a respected carpenter in the district, was always busy and loved his job. He also did evening work at the Yea Cordial Factory to support his family when his children were young. “He was very intelligent and had a very strong work ethic , often saying "find a job that you like and it'll never be hard work". “He had a couple of apprentices that were taught meticulously under strict instruction including his son Peter, with them working alongside each other for many years. “Bill was involved in the Lions Club, Masonic Lodge and was Yea Shire Council President. “In 2005 Bill and Val were recognised for their tireless work in the Yea community and were awarded the 2005 Australia Day Council Citizen of the Year. “Bill had a generous nature and would help anyone with anything. “Bill travelled extensively in Japan and visited Canada, America, Hong Kong and New

Council retreats

● Bill Wilson Zealand. “Bill and Val welcomed Japanese students into their home and showed them not only around Yea but Mildura and South Australia too. “He was a sweet tooth who also loved his motorbikes and was an avid supporter of the Collingwood Football Club. “Bill loved his Miller St home that he built with his own two hands and where he lived happily with Val all his 60 years of married life. “They hosted many weekend parties at the barbecue with not only their friends but their children's and the door was always open to have a chat around the kitchen table. “After Val's death in 2012 he resided with his daughter Jude and son-in-law Garry primarily, but also spent time with son John and daughterin-law Dianne before entering a nursing home 18 months ago. “He was very proud of his family and was happiest when they were all together. He had 13 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren and he loved to hear stories and updates of what and how they were doing around the country. “Bill was a humble gentleman, generous and respected , treating everyone he met with kindness, patience and care and will be dearly missed.”

Mr Douglas Perth Lawson ● From Page 5 The Lawsons are described by Glenburn residents as “good neighbours and friends”. Doug was well known for his involvement as Captain of the Glenburn Rural Fire Brigade which he joined on November 13, 1950 (recently receiving a 65-year medal). Locals laugh that the only meeting that Doug ever missed was in 1965, when he was elected Captain. Brigade members put through a phone call, through the Glenburn exchange (then at the hotel), for Doug’s mother to pass on to him, suffering from flu. He was Captain for 17 years, retiring in 1982. Officially, he was involved in 61 turn-outs. Betty served as Assistant Communications Officer of the Brigade. In those days that meant purchasing your own ‘High Frequency’ radio equipment. The early days of the Glenburn Rural Fire Brigade saw members equipped only with private units, knapsacks and rake hoes. Other groups had tankers; there was no Yea Group as we

● Doug Lawson know it today. Doug put pressure on CFA Region Officer Hec McLaren, and the first Willys vehicle soon arrived in 1967. Not longer after, the Brigade three-tanker turnout procedure, still current, started. Glenburn Rural Fire Brigade, under Doug’s captaincy, was involved in Shire- and Region-wide fire prevention measures. Doug pressured the CFA

Chairman, Doug Eastern, in 1977-78 for a phone line to Mt Despair, south of the Murrindindi Scenic Reserve. Doug was congratulated by CFA official Doug Lade for his involvement in training exercises. Doug was named as an Honorary Life Member of the Glenburn brigade. Doug Lawson was a “people person”. Parliamentarian Jim Plowman recommended that Doug become a Justice-of-the-Peace, an appointment he took for 40 years. Doug’s community involvements were many. For many years, he travelled near and far in the Glenburn Band trio with David and Judy Evans. After the passing of Betty in October 2014, Doug became a resident at Rosebank Extended Care Centre, Yea, where he maintained a busy life. Doug had not enjoyed the best of health in recent times, but his passing has come as a shock to friends and family. The Local Paper joins with the community in extending sincere condolences to the Lawson family on their very real loss.

■ The drama surrounding the future of the Euroa Cinema appears over, with the Shire of Strathbogie Council announcing to volunteers they were ceasing their review into its management structure. Since floating the idea of incorporating the cinema – and therefore removing any responsibility for its management from the shire – council has received feedback from concerned volunteers that the workload would be too great for their group to bear without shire assistance. - Euroa Gazette

Obituary: Ivan Keith Palmer

■ Ivan Keith Palmer was born in Melbourne on March 20, 1944. He was the fourth of six children born to Elsie and Frank Palmer, with brothers Les, Donald and Colin, and sisters Maureen and May. Ivan grew up in Altona, which in those days was still a semirural part of Melbourne. Ivan was able to spend hours roaming the open paddocks and fields, exploring the creeks, and collecting wild mushrooms, also fishing, floundering and gathering mussels and pipis. It was in these early years that Ivan’s love of nature and being outdoors was born, and these were passions that he retained for the resto f his life. Ivan attended Altona Primary School, and then went on to Williamstown Technical School. Formal class room learning was not for Ivan, and he left school at 15, and started work in nearby Spotswood, making gas meters. He left there, and then started work as a sheet metal fabricator. In the early 1970s, Ivan met a lovely young lady named Beth Ridd, who was become his wife. The young couple initially settled in Yackandandah, then Yea where he worked on the Yea Shire Council, before finally settling on a farm at Molesworth, after the death of Beth’s father, Dave Ridd. Their family grew with the births of their sons David in 1973, Les in 1975, Graham in 1977, and James in 1980. Sadly, Graham’s health was very poor, and he was constantly in and out of hospital, which placed an enormous strain on this young family. Ivan and Beth were devastated when Graham died, aged 3½, on December 23, 1980. Not long after, Ivan and Beth separated, and the children remained with their mother. Ivan moved initially to Kyabram, and then to Queensland, before finally settling in Tallangatta in the mid1980s, where he lived with his sister May and her family. Ivan worked as a cook at the Victoria Hotel in Tallangatta, and settled into a very happy life. He was particularly close to his nephew, Glenm, who was more like a brother to him. It was when Ivan moved to Tallangatta that he was able to reconnect with sons Dave, Les and James. Over many road and fishing trips, he was able to establish a strong and loving bond with his boys, who remember these as great times, where they learnt a lot about their father and each other, and created some wonderful memories which will last them a lifetime. Ivan was a man who was passionate about nature, and the outdoors. He loved nothing more

Although never keen on a formal education, Ivan has an inquisitive mind, and a thirst for knowledge. He could not get enough of documentaries by David Attenborough, and his choice of reading material was National Geographic, exploring the wonders of nature. He had a loving and gentle way with animals. His children have memories of him as a great story teller, who was particularly fond of telling Shnook stories, and this continued with his seven grandchildren. He had developed nicknames for just about everything, and to his children it was like he had his own language. He loved science, and the stars, and spent many evenings gazing into the southern sky, amazed by its beauty. He also loved a bit of a flutter on the horses, and while he had spent many years working out what he thought was the fool proof betting system, he never put it to the test. He would never bet more than a few dollars anyway, and $10 was a big win for him. Ivan was a bit of a worrier, however! When fishing, he would always worry that the fish were protected, or the boys were too close to the water, or about the crocs up north, or whether we’d get bogged or stuck out in the scrub somewhere. His sons would reassure him that it was fine, but there was always that niggling worry in the back of his mind. When asked by those close to him to describe Ivan, we were told than he was a loving father, and grandafther, a great and loyal mate, who never said a bad word about anyone. He was a gentle man, who hated conflict. Ivan first fell ill when he was 60, and ill health forced him to retire from work at 65. He spent the next few years bravely battling his illness, renal failure; it is believed he was the longest-lasting person on peritoneal dialysis, having self-dialysed for the past 8-9 years. This allowed him to take many fishing trips with his boys, and also to spend precious time with his family. Ivan passed away peacefully at the Royal Melbourne Hospital on Sunday, April 9, aged 73 years, his much loved children by his side.

Peter Isaacson AM, DFC, AFC, DFM ■ Distinguished military hero and successful businessman Peter Isaacson died on April 7 at the age of 96. Peter Isaacson, of Toorak, owned the ‘Bindaree’ property on Whittlesea-Yea Rd, Flowerdale, for several decades. He was publisher of the Melbourne Observer newspaper from 1977 to 1989. Peter Isaacson Publications was also the printer, under contract to Long Family Newspapers, in 199192, of weekly papers at Yea, Whittlesea, Kinglake, Seymour, Nagambie and Kilmore. He took an active interest in the doings of the Yea, and later Murrindindi, municipalities. Peter Isaacson was born in London on July 31, 1920, moving to Melbourne at age six. He was the son of Arnold Isaacson (son of Solomon Kramer), and Caroline ‘Lynka’ (nee Jacobson), born in Vienna, whose father Emile was Dutch, and whose mother Bettina Lipmann, was French. Arnold Isaacson’s family were in Melbourne: brothers Isidore, Michael, Alex and Abel; and sisters Rebecca and Celina. Arnold and Lynka married at the Dalston Synagogue, North London, in March 1919. The bride, 19, was 19 years younger, than her husband, who became a manufacturers’ agent, later a printing sales representative, travelling throughout country Victoria. Peter Isaacson’s planned enrolment at the Geelong Grammar School did not proceed, partly because of the school fees, partly because of ‘Uncle Alex’s’ objection to morning prayers. Peter attended various state schools in Elwood and Brighton, briefly at Wesley College, and then until age 16 at Brighton Grammar School. He became the Company Quartermaster Sargeant in the School Cadets. Peter Isaacson became a messenger boy at The Age newspaper, where his mother worked as Women’s Editor on the weekly Leader rural newspaper. His starting salary was 19 shillings and 6 pence ($1.95) per week. He attended Dr Hall’s Coaching Academy and matriculated. He enrolled at Melbourne University, doing his study prior to starting at The Age each weekday at 2pm. At age 18, Peter left The Age and joined Paul Freadman at Coronet Publishing and Paul Freadman Advertising, selling programs and book-

● ‘Pi’ in alleged retirement

“I was the proprietor, editor, reporter, sub-editor, advertising salesman, circulation supervisor, office manager and messenger boy.” To work his way around newsprint rationing, Isaacson added the Caulfield Advertiser and Carnegie Courier to his list, which tripled his supply. Later in 1947, Peter Isaacson took over the Southern Cross suburban newspaper. The Herald and Weekly Times Ltd injected working capital into the fledgling business. He took on involvements with the South Melbourne Record and Camberwell Chronicle newspapers. He became involved in weekly local papers, part of Gippsland Newspapers, which published the Morwell Advertiser, Moe Advocate and Yallourn Livewire. He was part of the conglomerate that wa successful in winning the GLV-10 television station. His cousin, Maurice Sloman, friends with Prime Minister Robert Menzies, was also part of the group

● Peter Isaacson spent some of his retirement time at his ‘Bindaree’ property on Whittlesea-Yea Rd, Flowerdale lets sponsored by charities, local councils and other organisations. He met Anne McIntyre, 16, on vacation from Toorak College, Mt Eliza, at The Milky Way meeting place in Lt Collins St. They were to marry in 1950. In the middle of 1940, Peter Isaacson was selected for the RAAF Air Crew Reserve. He was called up later in the year for initial training school, then to Narrandera for elementary flying training. He trained in Ottawa, Canada, as fighter pilot. His work with Bomber Command, England, from 1942 is detailed in the biography Pathfinder by Denis Warner. Warner quoted Isaacson: “You can’t be too emotional about things like bombing the Germans or Italians. You don’t want to dwell on it. I didn’t. Very few of us did. “That doesn’t mean that you are lacking in basic sympathies, but you are there to do a job. If you didn’t do it to them, they would do it to you.” He argued that Germany had started the war, and it was Germany that first bombed open cities. Peter Isaacson graduated from Halifaxes to Lancasters. A Lancaster’s expected life was 15 to 16 operations. In their dozens of flights they had many ‘close shaves’. Isaacson and crew were given the task of flying a Lancaster from London to Australia, where it was used to sell war bonds. ‘Q for Queenie VI’ received nationwide publicity as pilot Isaacson ● Anne and Peter Isaacson married at The Registry Office flew under the Sydney Harbour that won the BTV-6 licence at Bridge.

● In his 20s as an Air Force military hero came to an inglorious end. Peter Isacson purchased the business for $425,000. Denis Warner wrote: “Isaacson described it as semi-pornographic rag, put together with scissors and paste from a sheaf of lurid overseas publications.” The Isaacson business for some time continued to accept brothel advertising. He later moved the paper more up-market. Accounting advisor Ron Pitcher pleaded in later years for Isaacson to close the Observer business because of its ongoing financial losses. In 1989, the decision was made for him when Rupert Murdoch announced that he would start two Sunday newspapers: the Sunday Sun and the Sunday Herald; and The Age started its own Sunday edition. Isaacson closed the Observer. It was later re-commenced as a midweek paper by Local Media. Isaacson also tried the Sunday Territorian business in Darwin, but was thwarted by Murdoch starting an identically named paper. In the early 1990s, the O’Reilly family’s APN group took over the Isaacson publishing business that was recording group revenues of $35 million, but not making returns at international best standards. Isaacson remained as a Director for some time, but the APN group took his company in unfamiliar directions. Years later, he made a diary note that he lamented what APN had done to his business. In his late 70s, 80s and 90s, Peter Isaacson kept up his community interests. He was a Trustee, Chairman and Life Governor of the Shrine of Remembrance. He was a Director of companies including Balmoral Village and Henry Bucks. He was decorated with the Medal of the Order of Australia ‘for services to the print media and the community”. He was a leader with the Cairnmillar Institute. Peter Isaacson’s post-nominals also included the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Force Cross and Distinguished Flying Medal. Anne Isaacson died last year. His sister Barbara ‘Joan’ Beck died on the same day as Peter (April 7). He is survived by sons Tony and Tim and their families. A memorial service will be held in May. Peter Isaacson was a tough businessman, described as having a “heart of gold”. He could be a bully, and/or an angel. He lived by a maxim: “when in doubt, do the courageous thing”. His courage was often extraordinary. - Ash Long

Centrelink exemptions apply when you pre-pay your funeral There are many reasons to pay for your funeral in advance including locking in your wishes at today's prices (for a pre-paid funeral) and easing the financial and emotional burden on your friends and family at a difficult time. Did you know that investing in a pre-paid lowers your total assessable assets and may increase your Age Pension from Centrelink? A pre-paid funeral is fully exempt from the Centrelink asset test. Prepaid funeral expenses There is no need to inform Centrelink about your prepaid funeral expenses if you have a prepaid funeral contract with a funeral director. The contract must outline details of the services to be undertaken, with no more expenses to be paid. Cemetery plots When you purchase a cemetery plot, an interment niche, a mausoleum or any right of interment in a cemetery, there is no need to inform Centrelink. These are not included in your assessable assets by Centrelink, regardless of their value. For more information about Centrelink exemptions, or speak to your financial advisor today.

● Wayne, Murray Baynes, Barb Fisher and Kay Baynes ■ Vicki and Greg Clements returned an excellent net score of 64.5 to comfortably take out the Jack and Edna Baynes Memorial Trophy in Saturday's Mixed Canadian Foursomes - being played in its 31st year. The Baynes family was well represented with Barb Fisher and her brother Murray Baynes teaming up with 12 other teams for a most enjoyable day following the good rains. While the newly scarified and sanded greens were a tad slow, and the grassed fairways playing shorter the course provided some challenges but played extremely well. Carl Maffei and Susie Huggins were runners up on countback from Mick Spagnolo and Di Elliot both with a net scores of 67.5. It was great to have Life Members Myrna Patterson and Betty Berkery in attendance. On Wednsday 11 men started playing in the early morning fog but finished in the bright autumn sunshine at Royal Yea. Bob Glenister (8) won the men’s golf competition with 77 off the stick, nett 69. Russell Wealands (18) with nett 71 was second. Alan Pell was Nearest The Pin on the 14th and the Club Award was won on countbcak by Ivor Brayley from Carl Maffei. Bob Glenister also won the putting competition on the recently cored greens with 29 putts. - Alan Pell

AFL YARRA RANGES: DIVISION 2 SCOREBOARD BELGRAVE V YEA SENIORS Belgrave 18.22 (130) defeated Yea 8.10 (58)



Yea were taught at a lesson on Saturday against Belgrave, going down by a heavy 71point margin away from home. The Tigers were competitive early and bounced back from a three-goal deficit to be one kick away midway through the second term before an onslaught from the home side stretched the margin to 43 points at the major break. The score line might not have been an accurate reflection of the game but there is no doubt that the hosts were the stronger team, using their experience and smarts to transition the ball quickly from attack into defence. Harrison Jarvie tried his heart out in the midfield all day long, Indi Kaak competed well in defence and Brendan Bullen was impressive on debut, laying several big tackles. Eddie Neilson did a power of work behind the ball, Aidan McSpeerin was a standout and Paddy Rattray continued his strong early season form with five goals from limited opportunities. It was a good learning curve for the young side against Belgrave, which dropped down from Division One and showcased the importance of putting in a four-quarter effort. Yea used the ball poorly going forward and missed a number of gettable shots on goal early in the contest that would have put some much needed scoreboard pressure on the Magpies. The Tigers will travel to Powelltown this week with several senior players likely to return. - Patrick Evans SENIORS BELGRAVE .......... 6.6, 11.10, 13.17, 18.22 (130) YEA ............................... 1.6, 4.9, 6.10, 8.11 (59) Belgrave.

It was likely to be a long day at the office for the Tigers with five players missing from the previous week's win over Kinglake but this proved to be the case as the Magpies took control with a five-goal first term. They increased their lead at each change and it wasn't until the last term that Luke Mcaleer booted the visitor's first and only major of the match. Jack Sundblom was a strong presence both in the ruck and the back half, Lindon Young did good work at both ends of the ground and Ryan Akers battled hard in defence. Zac Butler was tireless in the midfield, Jaryed Garlick found plenty of the footy and Dean Clue gave his all, while Charlie Jenkins made a successful return in his first game of the year. The home side were simply too smart, often dropping players behind the ball to repel the Tigers forward entries and rebound back the other way. Now sitting at 1-1, Yea will square off against Powelltown on Saturday. - Patrick Evans BELGRAVE ......... 5.5, 8.10, 13.15, 18.18 (126) YEA ..................................... 0.0, 0.0, 0.1, 1.1 (7)

Welcome back for the 2017 Under 12’s season with the first quarter being a hard contest early. First, second and third efforts from Hayden Marx set the tone for the intensity that Yea was bringing and it wasn’t long before Lucas Zipsin opened the season on the scoreboard before Riley Slevin found his radar with his second crack. Strong hands from Rhys Harding through the middle and great lead-ups from Chayne Klinge showed how strong the team is this year. But it was Riley “catch me if you can” Frankcombe and Riley “he’s everywhere” Slevo that opened Alexandra up in the second. Jackson (Percy) Grech laid a come-frombehind tackle with his forward pressure for an assist and again won the ball from a tackle minutes later and kicked truly for Yea in the first half and their tails were up. The third quarter saw Yea dominate up forward but not on the scoreboard, kicking 1.9. Jardine Nai showed flashes of his talent as well as Sam Gregory and Stephen Clue who presented as our smallest players on the ground but standing tall with their attacks on the ball. Alexandra, to their credit, kept us scoreless in the last and nabbed four for themselves. Alex do look like they have a good side and won’t be easy beats when we meet again.

■ 1st Quarter. After a nervous start, Yea started to settle with Teagan Britton as GK defending well with Ebony Edge as GD applying a lot of pressure on the opposition, but not enough to prevent Alex from taking the lead to 8 to 0. 2nd Quarter. Ebony moved to GS and scored Yea's first goal, Caitlyn Broderick as WA led well creating plenty of space. Teagan unfortunately came off injured, but Ebony followed up with four more goals to bring Yea's score up to 6, but Alex was to quick adding 10 goals to bring them to 18 at the end of the qurater 3rd Quarter. Yea made a big improvement this quarter. Hannah Broderick as GS scored the first goal of the qtr with Jordyn Watts as GA playing strong. Hannah Cooney as GK defended well, but not enough to hold Alex off from scoring, Alex kept a good lead, 31 to Yea 13. 4th Quarter.

Kinglake vs Yarra Glen Reserves started the day’s play, with the senior game beginning with the annual ANZAC Day service at 3pm. Yarra Glen easily defeated the Kinglake Reserves, whilst the senior match was an intense hard fought game. Despite Kinglake staging a fourth quarter revival, Yarra Glen would win their seventh of 10 matches they've now played at Kinglake's Memorial Oval. The match was a hard-fought contest and close throughout the day with both Yarra Glen and Kinglake giving their all throughout Sunday's twilight match. Yarra Glen kicked the first three goals of the opening quarter until Kinglake's Zac White responded, kicking Kinglake's first goal - went on to kick another six for the match and earn best on ground- with Kinglake 2.4 (16) to Yarra Glen 3.2 (20) at the quarter-time break, with Kinglake laying 12 tackles and seven centre clearances to Yarra Glen nine in the opening term. During the quarter time break, Lakers coach Brad Wilkinson said: "We're starting to get our hands on the footy …they're trying to sneak wide and get their hands on (the) footy. "Ten minutes in (to the first quarter and) our intensity lifted …pressure lifted and we started getting our hands on the footy first" The second quarter was intense with both Kinglake and Yarra Glen matching each other in defence and attack with Kinglake kicking five goals to Yarra Glen's six in the second half. Scores at half time were two goals the difference with Kinglake 7.6 (48) to Yarra Glen 9.6 (60). Yarra Glen put their mark on the third quarter and with only three centre clearances Yarra Glen kicked four goals and four points to Kinglake's two goals three. Kinglake were now five goals behind going into the final term. "We've got to get our hands on this footy."

"It's crucial, we have to hunt this footy more than …work harder all over the ground," Kinglake playing coach Wilkinson said. Kinglake came within two goals midway through the final term but were unable to defeat Yarra Glen.

■ Starting the game with 14 was always going to be hard but the side stood up well against a free running Alexandra. Max Hargreaves and Coen Mark did a lot of running to keep the pressure on in the first quarter until Max got an injury(which forced him out of the game). The second quarter started with Caleb Harding moving into the ruck to free up Coen; Archie Jacobsen ,Daniel Williams, Asha Close and Austen Ross all playing solid roles. The third quarter saw the inclusion of the netball girls which took the pressure off the team in general, Ruby O'Dwyer with her pace and tackling and Cassy Wilsmore with her marking and kicking The fourth quarter saw Lachi Donnelly move onto the ball after Tobias Philpot and Daniel Williams had given their all . Johnny Hamilton got into the action with a mark and two clearances and Abby Christie took a strong mark to push us forward to contribute to the sides effort but Alexandra were too strong, wining easily. Full credit to an undermanned Tigers side for playing their best right to the end. Well done to Archie Jacobsen and Johnny Hamilton on their first games. Best for Yea: Austen Ross, Lachi Donnelly, Coen Marks and Tobias Philpot Final score: Yea 0.0 (0) defeated by Alexandra 19.14. (128) - Gary Harding

ALEXANDRA F.C. REPORT ■ The AFLYarra Ranges League Round 1 start of the 2017 season had finally arrived after a lengthy pre season campaign and the Alexandra Football/Netball Club hosted Belgrave for two games of football and four games of netball, the League then having a general bye for Easter, the Club then having a bye last weekend giving the Rebels a stop-start beginning to the season. At the end of 2014, the Rebels' focus under new coach Sam Kidd was to return to home grown talent and a real family atmosphere and young local players in a plan to build a very competitive team into the near future. The newspaper report after the 2015 round 1 local derby clash commented that "Alex supporters were pleased with the effort and believe that if we can keep this young group together adding a couple more good players we can expect big things from this team." At the end of 2015, the Rebels' focus under re-appointed coach Sam Kidd was to continue with the "locally grown" theme and more former junior players returned to the Club and everyone committed to the 2016 season. At the end of 2016, the Club appointed cocoaches for the 2017 season with Sam Kidd reappointed and joined by Scott Rowan, another product of the Club's junior teams. The majority of the playing group has re-registered and the coaches are pleased to have former local juniors back to the Club with Jack Elkington, Zach Heaslip and Chris McKay returning, joined by new players Jacob Brereton, Will Ingram, Rhett Marsh and Jonathan Pini and 2016 under 16 players William Ellis and Josh Humphries. Maintaining the home grown theme, in round 1 the senior team that took on Belgrave had 20 of the 21 players as former junior players joined by Jacob Brereton as the Club continues to build and consolidate its future. The ‘Rebels Family’ continues to grow and is looking forward to the year ahead across all grades of football and netball, and is determined to represent the community to the best of their ability so come along and support the Club. This Thursday we return to routine with junior training followed by junior meals and then senior training followed by senior meals.


The Holmesglen Joker Jackpot also resumes and is worth $1000 so come along and buy a ticket for $1 but you have to be at the social rooms at 8\pm to have a chance of turning the winning card. The Rebels travel to Yarra Junction this Saturday for two games of football and four games of netball with the senior football game to decide the George Steiner Cup for 2017 with everyone invited back to the Mt Pleasant Hotel for hospitality and the awards. - Ray Steyger


■ The Alexandra Football-Netball Club junior teams kicked off the 2017 season and travelled to Yea for four games of football and four games of netball with several new coaches, players and excited parents and grandparents as well as the Under 10 football team which has come under the Club umbrella as of this year. On Friday (Apr. 21) the Under 10 footballers had their jumper presentation to celebrate the introduction of the Club's first Under 10 team to join the Seymour District Junior Football Netball League. Under 10s football is based around players transitioning from Auskick to competitive football, the development of kids basic game skills, its main aims being for all kids to participate, have fun and develop skills in a safe game environment that provides a positive experience for kids in turn increasing their confidence. Although goals are kicked, there is no scoring, there is no win or loss in these games and there are no player awards or votes. Alexandra currently has 22 kids registered for Under 10 football and train at Rebel Park at 5pm on Fridays, led by coach Jason Sutcliffe. Players and parents are welcome. Several changes to the League sees Heathcote move to the Bendigo Junior League and Wandong enter our Junior League, whilst Puckarook is in recess this year so we have eight clubs with four games and no club byes each week.

● Josh Porter confronts intense competition from Alex. players ■ Under 10s football is all about participation and with 29 kids in our team at the Yea Tigers there are a lot participating. On Sunday the kids had an opportunity to put into practice what they had been learning at training over the last six weeks against old foe Alexandra. There were some fantastic passages of play with the ball being moved down the ground with really accurate kicking and marking. Rotating 29 kids in and out was a challenge for Bek Klinge (Coach) and Rob Armstrong (Assistant Coach) but they did a great job and all the kids got a go. Thank you to all the families who came and supported making it one of the biggest Under 10s crowds most people had seen at Yea. The rules are revised for this age group with no recording of the score so there wasn't an official winner but as the huge crowd of supporters could attest the winners were all the 45+ players out there having a go. Well done kids.
